         SHIPMASTER'S ARCHIVE, COMPRISING HIS SCHOONER LEDGER, BRIEF DIARY, AND SOME 100 OTHER PRINTED AND HANDWRITTEN ITEMS THAT BELONGED TO BURGESS

      1877 - LEDGER, worn leather and marbled boards, 13" x 8", containing 153 pages of handwritten entries in ink on blue paper, dating from 1861 to 1867. Most of the book is made up of ledgers of expenses for three different schooners owned by Burgess: "Elizabeth B"; "Typhoon"; and "Aurelia P. Howe". DIARY, 3-1/2 closely written pages of the ledger in which Capt. Burgess describes not only a thrilling hurricane, but also the attempted seizure of his vessel in early 1861 by the Confederacy, and his subsequent escape. (Accompanied by a 9-page modern transcription of the diary portion, written in pencil by an earlier owner of this book.) ARCHIVE documenting the construction and early voyages of the Bark "John Sheppard"--Freeman Burgess, Owner and Master, 1874-1879. (Archive housed in a 3-ring binder of archival document sleeves.). The first page of the ledger contains a list of the "gross stock" costs for 15 voyages of the "Elizabeth B." to destinations in 1863--New York, Boston, Gloucester, New Bedford, Providence and Bangor. This vessel next appears on page 10 with a list of "charges" for "kerosine and fluid", lamp, "hired help", stamps on the bill of lading, etc. Pages 16-17 list provisions and their costs: cod fish, butter and lard, etc., and Freeman E. Burgess, as well as Lovell Burgess (one of them appearing as "Ensign Burgess") are listed as being charged $10 for passage to NY. Pages 18-19 list "Port Charges", 1865, and include a list of people's names and what they were paid, including both Burgesses. More "wages and provisions prices are on pp. 20-21, then 28-29, dated 1863, contain figures for various bills for caulking, painting, lumber and nails, customs house, sail work, etc., while p. 30 lists "Port Charges", a long list: wharfage, pilotage, stamps, kerosene, harbour master, etc. The Provisions and Wages Paid list on p. 32 includes "Ensign Burgess", who is again listed on p. 34 (1863) along with his "share of the voyage". Later pages contain more of the same, including charges for 1864-65 voyages, with the final appearance of this schooner on p. 164, which notes that Freeman E. Burgess, Capt. of the Schooner Elizabeth B., received $3.50 "in full for 8 days service on Bord?Providence to New York" since he is paid $13/month. ~~ The second vessel named is the "Typhoon", carrying freight to Brashear (City), Louisiana (renamed Morgan City in 1876), and the entries include expenses at Brashear (wages paid to seamen, as well as several names including Burgess's). The next voyage mentioned is to Havana (pp 4-5), and expenses include an interpreter, translation of the manifest, "American Consul bill", ship chandler's bill, etc. She next (p. 6) goes to Frontera (Mexico), where expenses include "certificate of death and desertion of Cook and One". On p. 60, the "Manifest of Cargo On Board" lists Freeman E. Burgess as Master, and she is bound from Brashear City to Boston. ~~ It is as Captain of the Typhoon that Captain Burgess has his adventure with the Confederates in 1861, an episode he describes in detail in his 3 ½-page journal, written in the middle of the volume. The voyage starts on February 9, 1861, when the Typhoon sails out of Boston, headed for Brashear City, Louisiana. There is immediately a dramatic storm: "Gave all the chain we had and stood by the anchors all night until myself and mate were froze so bad it was impossible to stand it any longer?our water caske froze and burst and we were so covered with ice we could do nothing?." After they "laid three days" they set sail again and arrive in Brashear twenty days later. He walks around town as unloading begins, then returns and hears a steamer whistle. "I was most surprised when I saw the people that was on her on the top of her Paddle Boxes?25 men, some with a bottle and some with?whiskey giving 3 cheers for the Southern Confederacy. They came alongside and came on board, told me they should take charge of the schooner and cargo and had no authority but what they took upon [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Lengthy Autograph Letter Signed, 4 separate 4to sheets of onion skin stationery, n.p., n.d., but companion envelope postmarked, Baltimore, Apr. 21, 1911

      Hartley writes to Anne Traubel in a long letter in which he discusses his loneliness, the nature surrounding him, and his working on his paintings. He had a close friendship with Anne and her husband, Horace Traubel (1877-1943), author and biographer of Walt Whitman ("With Walt Whitman in Camden," published 1906). Hartley begins with a comment that her "beautiful letter" arrived "in the silences...It is a beautiful message for any one to deliver, this dark man's message...I sit writing you after having started a picture, done a washing which lies purifying in the sun on the grass. This hermit life which I live - curiously unlike me, does not bring me all the happiness it should..." He continues, "I am free to confess that as yet art has never been more than love and friendship nor has it been less - some would say it has nothing to do with either of them because art is purely intellectual and has little to do with the simple emotion - However I have painted on a picture - I have alluded to the needs of my body...and so I am feeling the loneliness in the presence of these beautiful unhuman things - there is too much peace, there is too much indifference too much of supremacy of mighty things...that know not what it is to be human...I desire only a human hand to touch a big broad shoulder to brush by...a smile to be conscious of ...These are the emotions that fill me here as the sun is nearly noon high...." He describes the vegetable garden he was planting earlier in the morning before painting. He mentions that the next day is, "Whitman's dinner day isn't it," and that he would like to attend to see people he would otherwise not meet. He mentions Mildred Bain. Frank and Mildred Bain were supporters and friends of Whitman and of the Traubels. Hartley sends his love to Horace and signs, "Marsden H." Small tear on the fourth page affecting one word, "dinner." Shortly before he wrote this letter, Hartley had exhibited 15 works in the Independents Exhibition. A group of New York artists sought to establish academy-independent shows in 1910 and 1911. The 1911 show, called the "Independent Exhibition of the Paintings and Drawings of Twelve Men," was held at the Society of Beaux-Arts Architects and organized by Rockwell Kent and Arthur B. Davies. In 1912, the year following our letter, Alfred Stieglitz offered Hartley his second solo show at Stieglitz' 291 Gallery. The show was quite successful, having sold a number of paintings to Agnes Meyer who became a benefactor. The sales to Meyer helped to enable Hartley to travel in Europe to study and paint. He left in 1912 and did not return until 1915.

         Mémoires d'un Gommeux. Par Saint-Patrice [pseud].

      Paris: E. Dentu, 1877. 8vo, contemporary black morocco with coat-of-arms gilt-stamped on the upper and lower boards, gilt lettering and inner dentelles, a.e.g. Frontis and three plates. ¶ James Harden-Hickey's own copy of his third novel, Mémoires d'un Gommeux, with his quasi-bogus coat of arms and armorial insignias gilt-stamped on the binding. Harden-Hickey (1854-1898) was one of the most colorful and picaresque figures in 19th century Western literature. Born in San Francisco during the gold rush, he moved with his mother to Paris at an early age and during his formative years was effectively a Frenchman. He was flamboyant, adventurous and had serious delusions of grandeur, which he managed to in part fulfill by marrying wealthy women. He was made a baron of the Holy Roman Empire and years later when sailing the Atlantic, he noticed that the south Atlantic island of Trinidad had not been claimed by a country. He proceeded to claim it for himself. He took the title Prince James I of Trinidad and began selling Trinidad government bonds in New York City. The British seized Trinidad in 1895 and Harden-Hickey?s dreams of his own country were over. He died in 1898 from an overdose of morphine in an El Paso, Texas hotel, a fitting end considering that one of the books he wrote was Euthanasia: the Aesthetics of Suicide (NY, 1894). In all Harden-Hickey wrote 12 books, several of them novels issued under the pseudonym Saint Patrice, and he edited the Paris newspaper Tribolet. ¶ Later bookplate of Jean-Marie Bernicat on the front paste-down and small oval ownership stamp of the same on the title-page. Fine copy.

         A Chinese Dictionary in the Cantonese Dialect

      London.: Trubner.. 1877.. 3 volumes. Volume I: xxxv + 404pp. Volume II: 405 - 1018pp. Supplement: xcviipp. Volume II: Lacks preliminary leaves prior to title page, but otherwise complete. Some worming particularly title page and first leaves but fortunately largely only affecting the margins of the leaves, indeed where letters have been lost, the sense of the sentence is still quite clear. All volumes recased, the first 2 volumes bound in early 20th maroon cloth and the supplement in black which is likely the original cloth. Each volume has modern endpapers, volumes I and II lettered in gilt on spine, new endpapers. Upper joint volume I torn with a little loss of cloth but still sound, some wear head and tail of spine, corners worn and bumped. Light even browning both volumes, note in black ink upper cover volumes I and II, some occasional spotting or marking. Cloth of Supplement volume damp marked, some occasional light soiling but overall text very good. Volumes I and II 23.8 x 15.5cm (25.4 x 17 binding) measure whereas the Supplement is a little larger at 24.5 x 15.7cm, (25 x 16.5cm binding). Ernst Johann Eitel (Ernest John Eitel, 1837-1908) was a German protestant missionary to China in the Canton area who later joined the Hong Kong civil government, where his knowledge of the languages and people of the province were of great assistance to the British authorities. He was also a prolific writer, whose works on Buddhism and on fengshui are being reprinted to this day on account of their abiding value. The Cantonese-English Dictionary is not least among his achievements. Several Cantonese-English dictionaries predate Eitel?'s, the most significant being the 1856 one volume work by the eminent American missionary scholar, S. Wells Williams (1812-1884) best known for his major historical work, The Middle Kingdom, published in 1848 and in a revised edition of 1883. Wilhelm Lobscheid (1822-1890), another German missionary-scholar turned Hong Kong civil servant, published an English and Chinese Dictionary in Hong Kong in four parts between 1866-69 (Daily Press Office) which gave the Punti (Cantonese) and Mandarin pronounciations , and was afterwards (1883) enlarged and re- published as a single volume in Japan by a Japanese scholar, However, Eitel?'s was the first properly Cantonese-English dictionary to appear in two regular volumes. It was later revised and enlarged further by Immanuel Gottlieb Genahr (1856-1937) yet another German missionary-scholar working in the Canton province [Guangdong] and published in 1910. This is the edition more commonly available today. The first edition is seldom if ever seen, which makes the present copy of greater interest to the specialist bibliophile. The supplement is even scarer still than the rare first edition. Strictly speaking, Cantonese is a language, not a dialect. The Eitel dictionary adopted the speech of the provincial capital, Canton, as the standard version of the spoken language, but there were, and to some extent still must be, many variations to be found within the regions of the province, including major dialects which were the subject of published articles by James Dyer Ball and other resident sinologues of the day, to be found in late 19th century issues of the China Review. In this situation, it is scarcely surprising that it is open to criticism by modern linguistic scholars like the late Wong Shik-ling (S.L. Wong) 1908-1959, of Lingnan and Hong Kong Universities, whose authoritative study of the language was published in Chinese in 1948. His observations would apply to all earlier works, but this is to be expected and in no way detracts from Eitel?'s and others?' achievements in bringing forward their important contributions to those westerners studying the language and to the promotion and understanding essential to meaningful cultural exchange. This copy of the first edition of Eitel?'s Dictionary was bought in Hong Kong about 1970 or earlier, and is likely to have spent its whole life there, perhaps having been brought out for sale by the London publisher?'s co-publisher, the famous local firm of Lane, Crawford & Co, founded in 1850 which continues to this day as the territory?'s most prestigious local department store, with branches in China. The dictionary itself was re-bound in the early 20th century, and the worn title blocks were replaced very recently. It appears likely that the cloth the supplementary volume is bound in is the original. .

         Richard Wagner a Bayreuth (Richard Wagner in Bayreuth [French Version].

      Ernst Schmeitzner, Chemnitz 1877 - TP + [1]-197 + [199] = Fautes d'impression, 12mo. First French Edition in Original Wraps (Schaberg 28). The First French Edition of Nietzsche's First Book on Wagner.There is little documentation regarding the beginnings of the second French translation prepared by Marie Baumgartner. [The first of Schopenhauer als Erzieher was never published.] Certainly, both Nietzsche and Frau Baumgartner were confident that if they got Richard Wagner translated, Schmeitzner would be able to arrange publication.Marie Baumgartner wrote to Nietzsche on 11 October 1876-only three months after the book's original appearance in German-to say that: "tomorrow the last pages of the translation will be in the mail and any day now the correction sheets should begin to arrive. Schmeitzner told me today that the book will consist of 12 press sheets and should be published by the end of the month." In the same letter, she noted that "you will be interested to know that Schmeitzner is in touch with book publishers in Paris, Rome and Moscow as well as London." The publisher was looking to broaden his network by using Richard Wagner in Bayreuth as the springboard for a trans-European business expansion.For two months, nothing happened. Then on 18 December Nietzsche wrote to Schmeitzner to ask: "How is the French translation coming?" Schmeitzner's reply, a month later, announced that the translation was finally ready. "The first copy will go to Frau Baumgartner as soon as the copies from Berlin-where they are being printed-reach me, which should happen any day now." He also reported that the book would appear in Italian bookstores at the beginning of February and in German bookstores by mid-February. Frau Baumgartner wrote to Nietzsche two days later, having recently heard from Schmeitzner herself. She claimed the delay was neither her fault nor the publisher's but was because "the printer in Berlin did not think he had to keep his word."Nietzsche received his copy of Richard Wagner à Bayreuth on 31 January 1877. The book had been printed with green card cover which had text identical to the title page except for the addition of an ornate border. The back cover listed advertisements for the four Unconventional Observations and for books by Overbeck, Widemann, and Fritze. The book's spine read: "Nietzsche: Richard Wagner à Bayreuth." and copies sold for 2.7 marks each. The title page included listings for bookseller/publishers who had become part of Schmeitzner's expanding European network from Paris, Turin, St. Petersburg, and London.The exact number of copies printed is uncertain. When Schmeitzner finally sold his stock of Nietzsche's books in 1886, he listed 967 remainders of the French translation. It is unlikely-but not impossible-that only 33 copies would have been sold, especially considering that this number would necessarily include the distribution copies for the translator, the author, and reviewers. On the other hand, it is highly unlikely that the French version would have sold more than the 232 copies of the original German version which had been purchased by that time. In all likelihood, Schmeitzner printed either 1,000 or 1,100 copies of this edition.The next day, Nietzsche wrote to Marie Baumgartner congratulating her on her skill as a translator and adding: "We all think that Schmeitzner was very clever. The steamship of the translation may well overtake the cumbersome freighter of the original." Next, he congratulated Schmeitzner, saying: "Let us hope that Europe will be kinder than Germany." Europe was not. (Schaberg, The Nietzsche Canon, pp. 51-53) 8" wide oval) of Schmeitzner's London affiliate, Wohlauer. A nice copy housed in a clamshell box done in half-leather with marbled boards.

         SHIPMASTER'S ARCHIVE, COMPRISING HIS SCHOONER LEDGER, BRIEF DIARY, AND SOME 100 OTHER PRINTED AND HANDWRITTEN ITEMS THAT BELONGED TO BURGESS

      1861-1877. LEDGER, worn leather and marbled boards, 13" x 8", containing 153 pages of handwritten entries in ink on blue paper, dating from 1861 to 1867. Most of the book is made up of ledgers of expenses for three different schooners owned by Burgess: "Elizabeth B"; "Typhoon"; and "Aurelia P. Howe". DIARY, 3-1/2 closely written pages of the ledger in which Capt. Burgess describes not only a thrilling hurricane, but also the attempted seizure of his vessel in early 1861 by the Confederacy, and his subsequent escape. (Accompanied by a 9-page modern transcription of the diary portion, written in pencil by an earlier owner of this book.)ARCHIVE documenting the construction and early voyages of the Bark "John Sheppard"--Freeman Burgess, Owner and Master, 1874-1879. (Archive housed in a 3-ring binder of archival document sleeves.). The first page of the ledger contains a list of the "gross stock" costs for 15 voyages of the "Elizabeth B." to destinations in 1863--New York, Boston, Gloucester, New Bedford, Providence and Bangor. This vessel next appears on page 10 with a list of "charges" for "kerosine and fluid", lamp, "hired help", stamps on the bill of lading, etc. Pages 16-17 listprovisions and their costs: cod fish, butter and lard, etc., and Freeman E. Burgess, as well as Lovell Burgess (one of them appearing as "Ensign Burgess") are listed as being charged $10 for passage to NY. Pages 18-19 list "Port Charges", 1865, and include a list of people's names and what they were paid, including both Burgesses. More "wages and provisions prices are on pp. 20-21, then 28-29, dated 1863, contain figures for various bills for caulking, painting, lumber and nails, customs house, sail work, etc., while p. 30 lists "Port Charges", a long list: wharfage, pilotage, stamps, kerosene, harbour master, etc. The Provisions and Wages Paid list on p. 32 includes "Ensign Burgess", who is again listed on p. 34 (1863) along with his "share of the voyage". Later pages contain more of the same, including charges for 1864-65 voyages, with the final appearance of this schooner on p. 164, which notes that Freeman E. Burgess, Capt. of the Schooner Elizabeth B., received $3.50 "in full for 8 days service on Bord... Providence to New York" since he is paid $13/month. ~~ The second vessel named is the "Typhoon", carrying freight to Brashear (City), Louisiana (renamed Morgan City in 1876), and the entries include expenses at Brashear (wages paid to seamen, as well as several names including Burgess's). The next voyage mentioned is to Havana (pp 4-5), and expenses include an interpreter, translation of the manifest, "American Consul bill", ship chandler's bill, etc. She next (p. 6) goes to Frontera (Mexico), where expenses include "certificate of death and desertion of Cook and One". On p. 60, the "Manifest of Cargo On Board" lists Freeman E. Burgess as Master, and she is bound from Brashear City to Boston. ~~ It is as Captain of the Typhoon that Captain Burgess has his adventure with the Confederates in 1861, an episode he describes in detail in his 3 ½-page journal, written in the middle of the volume. The voyage starts on February 9, 1861, when the Typhoon sails out of Boston, headed for Brashear City, Louisiana. There is immediately a dramatic storm: "Gave all the chain we had and stood by the anchors all night until myself and mate were froze so bad it was impossible to stand it any longer... our water caske froze and burst and we were so covered with ice we could do nothing... ." After they "laid three days" they set sail again and arrive in Brashear twenty days later. He walks around town as unloading begins, then returns and hears a steamer whistle. "I was most surprised when I saw the people that was on her on the top of her Paddle Boxes... 25 men, some with a bottle and some with... whiskey giving 3 cheers for the Southern Confederacy. They came alongside and came on board, told me they should take charge of the schooner and cargo and had no authority but what they took upon themselves." The revelers finally leave "drunker than ever." ~~ Burgess goes to town next day and sees the cutters crew hauling the Schooner Mary on to the wharf: "I began to think they were in earnest and after reaching town I learned that orders had just come from Montgomery to stop all vessels loaded with Live Oak and Naval Stores." He is told that they will "put an officer aboard" his vessel if he doesn't give his word not to sail off. He replies that he has enough officers on board already and is told that they've written Montgomery about his giving the Live Oak, etc. Burgess waits 14 days, then receives orders that he could "discharge my Live Oak". After two days of unloading, contradictory orders come, saying he is not to unload and that schooner and cargo will be taken to New Orleans. He has no money or provisions, so "discharged all my crew except my mate and got just money enuf to get them out of the place... ." He takes the "chronometer and all the valuable things out of the vessel" and next sees "Capt. Hampson and crew getting into the Cars to go home, likewise my own [crew]... " He registers a protest and notes that "myself and mate were the only Northerners" there. He goes to see "Mr. McMullin, chief collector" and tells him he'd like to see any official "authority for stopping the vessel." He is told that orders came the day before "that all American vessels would have 30 days to get [to] their respective homes... " The Collector sent a letter saying to "retain the Live Oak but give the vessel a clearance within 30 days" and adds that Burgess should let him know if anyone "bothered or molested" him. &c., &c. ~~ The third schooner in the ledger is the Aurelia P. Howe, and thirty pages are devoted to wages and provision, bills paid, settlement of voyages, gross stock lists, port charges, etc. Virtually all are from 1867. In addition to Burgess, another captain mentioned in connection with the vessel is Lewis B. Doane, whose name appears when Capt. Burgess pays him $100 in January, 1868; in a settlement of Jan-Sept. 1867; in accounts dated July-Sept, 1866; as receiving cash for 1/128 of Schooner A.P. Howe; as receiving credit on his wages, etc. Burgess's name is included in a list of owners (pp 152-3) and is mentioned also in lists of the schooner's earnings for various periods. The Aurelia P. Howe's destinations include Savannah (1866 or '67), Tampico, Chiltepec, Boston to Harwich, Philadelphia to Boston, Mobile, Galveston, Charleston, NY, etc. ~~ A fourth schooner, the Edward Kidder, is mentioned on pp 98-99, 101 and 103, with the usual listings for expenses (Newport to Savannah), port charges, wages, etc. No mention of Burgess. ~~ The archive accompanying this ledger is a collection of about 100 items, including the contract for building the bark "John Sheppard" between Freeman Burgess of Harwich, and George Currier, master ship builder of Newburyport, and all manner of carpenters, purveyors, chandlers, surveyors, customs people, merchants, consignors and port officials. Her maiden voyage saw her sail to South America (several receipts from the Panama Railroad Company) to Mexico, to Queenstown, Ireland, to Liverpool, and back to Boston. This is a rich assortment of 19th century billheads, invoices accounts, and other printed material creating the biography of an American merchant sailing ship, and now housed in archival sleeves and a binder. Very Good.

         Catalogue des livres de beaux-arts, de littérature et d'histoire la plupart ornés de figures et très-bien conditionnés composant la bibliothèque de feu M. Phélippon

      Paris: Adolph Labitte, 1877. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good antiquarian condition. 8vo. 164 pp. 1243 lots, all with prices and buyers' names in manuscript. Contemporary French broad half red morocco over marbled boards (trifle rubbed at extremities), marbled edges and endpapers, original wrappers bound in. Scarce; no copy in the Grolier Club, and indeed combined searches in OCLC Worldcat and CCFR (Catalogue collectif de France) produce just one copy worldwide: BnF. Our copy has prices and buyers' names throughout in a fine calligraphic hand. Characteristic of contemporary taste are high prices realized for "livres a figures" such as Dorat's "Les Baisers" (1770) illustrated by Eisen, the Phelippon copy bound in blue morocco by Bozerian (lot 449) for 905 FF (to Rouquette). Compare this Phelippon's copy of Senault's "Heures nouvelles" (ca. 1680) in contemporary green morocco elaborately gilt "aux dentelles" (lot 20) which sold for 73 FF (to Labitte). Another comparable: a 1514 Basle Bible in contemporary calf over wooden boards (lot 1) for just 7.50 FF (to Ritti) which is a fraction of the price paid for Dorat's "Les Baisers." A complete set of Bernard Picart's "Ceremonies et coutumes" (7 vols., 1741) in contemporary mottled calf (lot 54) sold for 106 FF. Gustav Brunet discusses the Phelippon sale in his "Livres payés en vente publique 1,000 fr. et au dessus depuis 1866" (Paris, 1877), reference to the Phelippon copy of "Les Baisers" and also the Oudry Fables de La Fontaine (1755-59, 4 vols.) printed on Papier de Hollande (lot 553) which realized 1,100 FF (to Morgand). Whereas the Phelippon sale occurred immediately prior to the bespoke Brunet publication, additional biographical information about this enigmatic collector has not been forthcoming, thus inviting further research. The name of Adolph Labitte, one of the two Commisseur-Priseurs, and publisher of the catalogue, appears as a buyer on almost every page. Blogie col. 144, lists the copy at the Bibliotheque royale Albert I, Brussels. From the library of Georges Heilbrun, with his bookplate.

Compare this Phelippon's copy of Senault's "Heures nouvelles" (ca. 1680) in contemporary green morocco elaborately gilt "aux dentelles" (lot 20) which sold for 73 FF (to Labitte). Another comparable: a 1514 Basle Bible in contemporary calf over wooden boards (lot 1) for just 7.50 FF (to Ritti) which is a fraction of the price paid for Dorat's "Les Baisers." A complete set of Bernard Picart's "Ceremonies et coutumes" (7 vols., 1741) in contemporary mottled calf (lot 54) sold for 106 FF. Gustav Brunet discusses the Phelippon sale in his "Livres payés en vente publique 1,000 fr. et au dessus depuis 1866" (Paris, 1877), reference to the Phelippon copy of "Les Baisers" and also the Oudry Fables de La Fontaine (1755-59, 4 vols.) printed on Papier de Hollande (lot 553) which realized 1,100 FF (to Morgand). Whereas the Phelippon sale occurred immediately prior to the bespoke Brunet publication, additional biographical information about this enigmatic collector has not been forthcoming, thus inviting further research. The name of Adolph Labitte, one of the two Commisseur-Priseurs, and publisher of the catalogue, appears as a buyer on almost every page. Blogie col. 144, lists the copy at the Bibliotheque royale Albert I, Brussels. From the library of Georges Heilbrun, with his bookplate. Very good antiquarian condition [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

         Across Africa.

      London: Daldy, Isbister & Co., 1877 - 2 volumes, octavo (215 × 137 mm). Recent dark blue morocco, titles and decoration to spines gilt, raised bands, single rule to boards, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Ownership inscription to half-title, some occasional light foxing, an excellent copy. Frontispiece to each, 31 plates and 123 woodcuts in all, one engraved folding map coloured in outline in end-pocket of Volume I. First editions. Cameron (1844-94), a naval officer and traveler, volunteered to lead the Royal Geographic Society expedition to find and assist David Livingstone in the African interior. The expedition suffered from the usual difficulties, including desertion, illness, and conflict with local chiefs, before it arrived in Unyanyembe in August 1873. Here, word reached Cameron of Livingstone's death; the missionary's body was brought in some time later. "This left Cameron in a quandary. His instructions from the Royal Geographical Society made it clear that he should go no further than find Livingstone and put himself at his disposal. Moreover, he had been warned that money was short" (Ewans, European Atrocity, African Catastrophe, p.34). Under the pretext of collecting some of Livingstone's belongings, Cameron set out for Ujiji and Lake Tanganyika, where he decided to continue Livingstone's exploration of the southern part of the lake. This decision lead to Cameron following the Lukuga River onwards east to the Lualaba and from thence onwards. In November 1875, after more than two years' travel in Central Africa, Cameron arrived in Benguela, thus becoming the first European to transverse the African continent from east to west. Published two years later, Across Africa, the account of his travels, "contained valuable suggestions for the opening up of the continent, including the utilization of the great lakes as a Cape-to-Cairo connection" (Howgego). Embacher, p. 68; Howgego IV C5.

         Yochi Shiryaku

      1877. UCHIDA, Masao. Yochi Shiryaku [Outlines of World Geography or Short Description of the World]. 216 pp. Printed on double-leaves of rice paper. Illustrated with 37 wood-engravings or lithographs plus 4 maps of the Americas, United States and Mexico (2 folding). 4to., 253 x 167 mm, bound Japanese style in original dark blue paper wrappers, paper title-label on cover. Laid into black cloth box. [Tokyo, Japan]: Uchida Masayoshi zoban, Meiji 10, 1877. |~||~||~||~| First Edition (?) of this fascinating Japanese geo-encyclopedia of the United States and Mexico. This volume represents the North America section of a 13-volume Japanese series covering the entire world. Of particular interest here are the many illustrations, primarily woodcuts (there are two beautiful lithographs as well), depicting such typically American subjects as big trees in California, steamboats on the Mississippi, Native Americans in the Southwest, gold mining in California, a buffalo hunt, railroads, Niagara Falls, scenes in New York City, Washington (view of the Capitol before the addition of the dome, Congress in session and the White House, views of Boston, St. Louis, Philadelphia, and other American cities. Natural history illustrations include an American bald eagle, a cotton plant and a black bear. Uchida Masao (1838-1876), a graduate of the Nagasaki naval school and one of the earliest Japanese travelers in America. Uchida was dispatched to Europe by the Tokugawa shogunate, where learned Western culture and technology in Holland for five years beginning in 1862. Uchida was part of a Bakufu "student" group that visited America on his way back from Europe. He then returned to Japan with oil paintings, photographic albums, and hundreds of pictorial natural history images. Based upon the sources he collected on his travels, "Uchida began to compile the Yochi Shiryaku in 1870, a thirteen-volume of encyclopedia of world geography. Its success was primarily due to the huge number of illustrations that Uchida called "shashin (photography)," the images copied from the Western photographic albums and traveling magazines." (Paper delivered to the "Association of Asian Studies," Chicago, March 26-29, 2009). The Mexican views include the Cathedral in Mexico City, views of other Mexican towns such as Guanajuato, view of the volcano Popocatepetl, a pair of Mexican women in traditional dress, and a Mexican farmer harvesting maguey juice. Holdings of the complete 13 volume series are held by Harvard, University of Michigan and UC Berkeley, but individual volumes are more commonly found since the work was issued over a period of years. Very minor wear to wrappers, one binding thread broken, cover label with small chip to one corner, occasional worm tracing, very minor, and not affecting text. Beasley, W.G. Japan Encounters the Barbarian (1995), p. 121 and passim.

         Black Beauty: his grooms and companions. The autobiography of a horse. Translated from the original equine.

      London: Jarrold and Sons, [1877] - Octavo. Original green cloth, spine and front board lettered and decorated in black and gilt, rear board blocked in blind, brown endpapers (Carter's B binding), edges trimmed. Skilful restoration to cloth at foot of spine and to inner hinges, an excellent copy. Frontispiece, 8pp. undated publisher's adverts at end. First edition, presentation copy inscribed by the author's mother Mary on the front endpaper, "The Revd J Drake, from his sincere friend, Mary Sewell"; in one of two primary bindings (Carter B). This Victorian classic was the only book of its bedridden author, who died shortly after its publication, much too soon to appreciate its slowly accumulated worldwide success. Presentation or inscribed copies are understandably rare and the majority are not inscribed by the author herself, but by her mother. Anna's mother Mary was a Quaker (though she experienced a spiritual crisis in her late thirties that resulted in her leaving the Quakers and being baptized) and a children's writer in her own right. Anna and her mother were extremely close and mother helped daughter substantially during the composition of the novel. In 1938 Carter distinguished three states of the binding: A with the same blocking as this, but all in gilt; B, as here, with the horse's head, titling, and the rustic portions of the decoration in black (Carter mistakenly describes the titling as gilt, which invariably leads to the B binding being described as a variant), the other parts being gilt; and C, blocked in black and gilt, with a much smaller horse's head gilt in a medallion, facing left, the same design as used for the later editions. Carter A and B are primary, and the earliest dated inscribed copies are Christmas 1877. Publication date was 24 November 1877. Carter, More Binding Variants, pp. 37–38; Quayle, pp. 96–97.

         Emma: a Novel.

      London: George Routledge and Sons, [1877] - Octavo (162 × 100 mm). Contemporary pale brown half sheepskin, gilt tooled on the raised bands, blind centre tooled spine, brown cloth sides, marbled edges. Ownership inscription on front free endpaper: "Miss Cassels, Wheatlandside, Lanark [Scotland], 1877"; a very nice copy. A decidedly scarce mid-Victorian edition: Copac appears to locate only two copies (Exeter, Cambridge); as the edition is undated it is difficult to trace accurately the number of copies in OCLC but it would appear to be no more than a handful. The only copy that Gilson had seen was in Boston Public Library, and he comments that the edition was "presumably" issued in Routledge's Ruby Series. Emma was first published in 1816.

         Letter from the Secretary of War, Transmitting, in answer to a Senate resolution of March 2, 1877, a copy of the final report of the operations of the troops in the Modoc country, by General Alvan Gillem. March 10, 1877

      n.p., [Washington, D.C.] 1877 - Howes G175. Graff 1551. Special Session, March 5, 1877. Senate. Ex. Doc. No. 1. "Earliest Account of this disastrous campaign," Howes. Gillem was Commander of the Modoc Expedition during which unarmed Peace Commissioners sent by Ulysses Grant were murdered by the Modoc leader Captain Jack and his band. Gillem offers both a detailed report on the Campaign as well as a defense of his actions at the Lava Beds tragedy for which he was criticized. Both this, the official government report, and that printed earlier in 1874 at Benicia Barracks, are quite uncommon. OCLC shows only five copies of the 1874 report and five copies of this version: Yale, Univ. Arizona, Univ. Cal, Huntington, and Univ. Alberta. A very good copy with several chips and tears.
