        James A. Garfield?s signed copy of ?A Grammar of the Latin Language? with over 30 words in his hand

      The first Presidential memorial library, completed at the Lawnfield estate in Ohio by the widow of James Garfield four years after his assassination, houses almost 3,000 books that were used and treasured by the 20th president. Books were a scarce commodity to young James, who lost his father before the age of two, and was raised by his mother who struggled to maintain a humble existence. Both James Garfield and his wife Lucretia were voracious readers and amassed a large collection of books. Some twenty years ago, several dozen of his books were de-accessioned, and one of these books is described below:Book signed ?James A. Garfield / Hiram Ohio / Aug 28 1851? in pencil on first blank flyleaf. ?A Grammar of the Latin Language; for the Use of Schools and Colleges? by E.A. Andrews and S. Stoddard. The Eighteenth Edition. Boston: Crocker and Brewster, 1850, 323 pps, 4.5? x 7?. Lower blank portion of flyleaf torn away. Worn corners and edges. Reinforced separation at inside hinges. Garfield?s

        The Erne, Its Legends and its Fly Fishing

      London; Chapman & Hall 1851 - Hardcover, full contemporary maroon decorative leather school prize binding, banded spine with title lable, school crest and motto to front board, gilt borders to boards and gilt decoration to board edges, 7¾ by 4¾ inches, marbled endpapers, xii, 395pp, all edges marbled, coloured frontis of six tied flies, coloured vignette ("The Fairy Fly") to title page, plus four engraved plates. First edition. First, the good news - pages very clean and quite bright, some limited foxing to outer couple of leaves only, the hand-coloured engravings are present and nice and clean, as are the four engraved plates, and the binding is solid. There is a small neat owner's name to the head of the title page and a prize bookplate to the reverse of the front board. Now the bad news - the front board is completely (and quite cleanly) detached - possibly the book was dropped at some point, and there is no trace of the fold-out map mentioned in other listings. As the binding is very solid (apart from the front board) and there is no sign of a page having been removed, nor is there any sign of a tipped-in map being removed, it may be that the map was never included when the volume was bound-up into its prize binding. Lastly, the leather to the spine is well worn and rubbed. So a bit of a mixed bag overall. Careful restoration and repair could probably re-attach the board and a new spine be laid on to produce a rather handsome copy, but you would still be missing the map. Happy to provide further pix or answer questions. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Antiguedades Peruanas

      1851 - A splendid work on ancient Peru and Pre-Columbine archeology. 1851. Vienna. Leopoldo Muller. In 4to and in Folio (225 mm x 140 mm; 550 mm x 430 mm). xxii + 306 + 1 [blank]; 1 [blank] + title + lviii lithographed plates (with iia), plate 38 in facsimile. Text ¿in the English version- in original brown cloth, a little rubbed and worn, with loss to head of spine, the atlas in original cloth-backed printed boards, rubbed and soiled as always but still quite handsome original binding, hardly ever preserved. Lower inner corners of first plates with a light waterstain, a very few other gently toned, else a very clean and fresh example. First complete edition ¿and the first of the important album. One of the most important and comprehensive works on Peruvian archaeology, and the first of its kind; it deals with the original inhabitants, their history and political system, language, religion, objects, costumes, monuments, burials & mommifications, and such. Rivero (1798 ¿ 1857) was a prominent Peruvian scientist and archaeologist, Director to the National Museum of Lima. Tschudi (1818 ¿ 1889) was a Swiss naturalist and explorer; he journeyed to Peru in 1838, where he would stay for five years, mainly in the Cordilleras of the Andes, from there he went to Brazil where he continued his research; it is, however, his stay in Peru that interest us. ¿A work of great importance on the ethnology and antiquities of Peru. It treats on the history, government, religion, language, science and arts of the Incas prior to the Spanish invasion, and contains the earliest authentic delineation of their architectural and other remains. The plates, which comprise upwards of eighty engravings, were executed with great care and finely colored. The original price of the two volumes was about $35.¿ (Sabin). The album contains a chromolithographic title, illustrated with the portraits of 14 Incas carved on the massive ¿Puerta¿ with a view of the Peruvian landscape and fauna, and 59 impressive colour and tinted lithographed plates, showing mommies, objects, ornaments, tapestries, relics, monuments, weapons & ruins. The text is in its English translation ¿Peruvian Antiquities¿, 1853, New York. Sabin, 71643. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Chess Player's Chronicle, The

      C Skeet, London 1851 - viii+376 pages with diagrams and index. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in period cloth with blind stamped covers with gilt insignia, and gilt decoration and lettering to spine. From the library of Dino Ruggieri. Volume XI. (Betts: 7-1) First edition. The Chess Player's Chronicle, founded by Howard Staunton and extant from 1841–56 and 1859–62, was the world's first successful English-language magazine devoted exclusively to chess. Various unrelated but identically or similarly named publications were published until 1902. The earliest chess magazine in any language was the French Le Palamède, published in 1836-39 and 1842-47. In 1837 George Walker introduced an English-language magazine, the Philidorian, that was devoted to "chess and other scientific games". Only six issues of it were published, and it "expired in May, 1838". The Chess Player's Chronicle became the first successful English-language chess magazine. In 1840 or 1841 Staunton bought the fortnightly magazine The British Miscellany and Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1841 it became The Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1843, the Chess Player's Chronicle became a shilling monthly magazine. Staunton "made the inclusion of a large number of games by himself and other leading players of the day a special feature" of the magazine. He also used the magazine as a forum for attacking others. Staunton was the owner and editor of the magazine until the early 1850s, when he sold it to R.B. Brien. O'Brien became editor of the magazine, but was unable to continue its success and discontinued it in 1856 because of financial losses and his own illness. It reappeared in 1859 under the editorship of Ignatz Kolisch, Zytogorski, and Josef Kling, but survived only until July 1862. Thereafter, a number of magazines appeared with the same or similar name (such as Chess Players' Chronicle) appeared. Arthur Skipworth, assisted by William Wayte and Charles Ranken, wrote The Chess Players' Quarterly Chronicle, which was published in York from February 1868 to December 1871. Skipworth, who had left Bilsdale for Tetford Rectory, Horncastle, and John Wisker became the editors of the new The Chess Players' Chronicle in February 1872. Johann Löwenthal began writing for it in 1873. The magazine ran until 1875. In January 1876, it was succeeded by The Chess Player's Chronicle, whose editor-in-chief was J. Jenkin of Helensburgh. Its editorial staff consisted of Jenkin, Skipworth, Ranken, Wayte, and Andrew Hunter of Glasgow. Billed as a "monthly record of provincial chess", it was published at Glasgow, costing sixpence. Its short run under Jenkin's editorship was marked by xenophobia. The February issue stated that the West End Club had "cleared away the disturbing foreign element which whilom infected the Divan" and referring to Wilhelm Steinitz as "the hot-headed little Austrian". Its third and last issue was published in March. The magazine reappeared in January 1877. It was now under Ranken's editorship, assisted by J. Crum, G. B. Fraser, Skipworth, and Wayte. The first issue apologized for "certain offensive statements and insinuations, seriously affecting the honor of some eminent players", and explained that some members of the present editorial staff had only contributed games and other inoffensive material to it in 1875. Ranken continued to edit the magazine until September 1880. In 1881, the title was enlarged to The Chess Player's Chronicle, and Journal of Indoor and Outdoor Sports, and "the magazine's importance in the chess world was no longer the same". None of these magazines compared in quality with what Staunton had achieved, and the success of the British Chess Magazine, by the turn of the century a superb magazine, put an end to the title in 1902. Dino Ruggieri was born in, Pigüé a small city in the Buenos Aires province, October 22, 1921. His parents were both Italians, natives of Porto D'Ascoli. In their early years in Argentina, the Ruggieri’s family lived in the country, located about [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        "Isla de Puerto Rico por el Teniente Coronel Capitan de Ingenieros D. Francisco Coello."

      Madrid: D. Francisco Coello, 1851. FRANCISCO COELLO'S SUPERB CHART OF THE ISLE OF PUERTO RICO CONTAINING TEN BEAUTIFULLY RENDERED INSET MAPS Published in Atlas de España. Engraving with original hand color Sheet size: 30 ¾" x 41 ½" Framed size: 47 1/8" x 51" Prominent military engineer and geographer Don Francisco Coello de Portugal y Quesada (1822-1898) produced this handsome chart of Puerto Rico, which contains 10 inset maps and a detailed historical and statistical text. The nineteenth century constituted a significant turning point in the history of European cartography as governments, following the lead of France, finally came to the conclusion that up-to-date maps could serve more than just military functions. Indeed, the valuable documents, as France's monumental Carte de Cassini overwhelmingly demonstrated, could also foster communication and commerce between countries and across empires. Following France's example, the Spanish government commissioned Coello to produce 65 maps of Spain and its colonial holdings in the first half of the nineteenth century. Coello's maps were ultimately intended to accompany Pascual Madoz's comprehensive Diccionario geografico estadistico historico. . Book.

        Gang of 25 Sea Island Cotton and Rice Negroes (Slave Sale Broadside)

      [Charleston, South Carolina}, 1851. Broadside. Good. Broadside. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Approximately 8" x 10". Broadside printed on stiff, dark tan paper. Dampstains, creasing and small tears with old paper reinforcement and repair on reverse. Advertises the sale of twenty-five slaves (by name, age, and skill) to be held at Ryan's Mart (the largest slave market in Charleston) on 5 September 1851. Includes "prime" field hands, a cook, a carpenter, and young teenager with a "slight defect in knee from a broken leg." De Saussure was one of the preeminent slave traders in Charleston and lived in a large, beautiful house on East Battery not far from Ryan's Mart. Interestingly, the auction must not have not have been successful as near identical broadsides were published a year later advertising the sale of the same slaves. Quite scarce. This particular broadside is not listed in WorldCat, the Library of Congress, or the Smithsonian, however at least five other De Saussure slave auction posters are held by various institutions.

        Autograph letter signed.

      N. p. o. d.. 8vo. 2 pp. on bifolium.. To Emile Schuffenecker, thanking him for arranging for Gauguin to travel to Paris by train: "Grand merci de votre lettre et de son envoi. Justement j'ai ecrit a Bernard mon desir de partir pour Paris donc votre offre pour m'envoyer le voyage tombe a point et je l'accepte de grand coeur. Du reste a Paris je vais me debrouiller pour vendre quelque chose, vous serez donc rembourse je crois en peu de temps. Le 4 ou le 5 je me mets en chemin de fer.

Ou bien encore je pousserai le ministre des finances pour me donner en France n'importe quoi. Mais il faut que e sois a Paris pour cela. [ ]". - The French Post-Impressionist artist, painter, art teacher and art collector Emile Schuffenecker (1851-1934) was a close friend of Paul Gauguin and Odilon Redon, and one of the first collectors of works by Vincent van Gogh. Until the early 1890s when Gauguin and Schuffenecker quarrelled, Schuffenecker gave great support to Gauguin, encouraging him to take up a career as a painter. He also had the idea for the 1889 Exhibition at the Volpini Gallery, a key moment in Gauguin's influence on young painters.

        THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES

      Ticknor, Reed & Fields, Boston 1851 - Hawthorne, Nathaniel. THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES. Boston: Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, 1851. First edition in original publisher's brown blind-stamped cloth, mostly, if not entirely, first issue (see below). A NEAR FINE copy, only lightly worn with a few spots to the cloth, but almost completely unchipped at both ends of the spine which is very rarely the case. This example is bright and sharp, and has never been repaired or restored. The official bibliographical description for this book is convoluted and, to some, controversial so here is more detail: this copy has the earliest adverts at the front of the volume (Clark's primary state "A") dated 1851. Perfect type at page 50, line 25 & page 278, line 25. No battered or misaligned type (as is often called for) at page 149, lines 1-3, but no compelling evidence for it having been re-set. The binding is BAL 7604's variant "B" (no precedence). This copy's original owner has drawn a small and well-executed portrait of Hawthorne on the recto of the final blank, dated April 18th, 1851 and captioned with the Latin phrase: "Qui facit per alium, facit per se" which speaks directly to the curse of THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES whereby the sins of a family lineage get passed down through each generation (metaphorically reflected in the decaying of the seven-gabled mansion itself). THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES contains some of Hawthorne's greatest writing and remains, after 160 years, just as much a classic. A fresh collector's copy with only the most minor of trivial faults.

      Edinburgh 1851 - Miller, Hugh (1802-56). Autograph letter signed to Edward Charlesworth (1803-93). 1 page plus integral blank. Edinburgh, 21 February 1851. 201 x 126 mm. Small tears along fold not affecting text, traces of former mounting, light soiling along folds but very good. Docketed by recipient. From Scottish paleontologist and geologist Hugh Miller, author of works of popular science including The Old Red Sandstone (1841), Footprints of the Creator (1850) and The Testimony of the Rocks (1856), to fellow paleontologist Edward Charlesworth, editor of the Magazine of Natural History. "I am glad to see you have added a [ ] shell column to your columns of British Fossils. Please set me down as a subscriber for a £2 . . set; as also for a £2 . . set of the fossils of the Mountain Limestone . . . I am at present engaged with printers and woodengravers in getting up a fourth edition of my little work the "Footprints" which will contain prints of a few curious unique organisms picked up since I had the pleasure of seeing you in Autumn last . . ." Although he had little formal scientific training, Miller made important contributions to paleontology including the discovery of several previously unknown species of fossil fish. A deeply religious man, Miller believed that "the fossil record confirmed, in broad outline, the cosmic drama depicted symbolically in the Bible" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). His geological studies had convinced him of the Earth’s great age, but he held that the fossil record represented separate creations rather than the transmutation of species over time. His Footprints of the Creator was intended as a rebuttal of the evolutionary theory put forth in Robert Chambers’s Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation (1844). The fourth edition of Footprints, mentioned in Miller’s letter, came out in 1853. Miller’s letter is on the letterhead of The Witness, a Scottish evangelical newspaper of which he was the editor.

        Adventures in Australia , or the Wanderings of Captain Spencer in the bush and the wilds

      London: Grant and Griffith, 1851. Small octavo, with four steel-engraved plates; modest preliminary foxing, some wear to front joint, good in original blue cloth, blind blocked boards and ornate gilt spine. First edition of an imaginary travelogue for children featuring detailed yet entirely concocted descriptions of Aboriginal life in the Australian wilderness. The tale follows the dashing Captain Spencer, shipwrecked on the north Australian coast and accompanied by a sortie of faithful pets (including a charismatic talking parrot), who set out on foot for the Swan River. Although obviously intended as fiction, the consistent emphasis on scientific description reflects the authors genuine if naïve interest in natural history and native customs. Sarah Wallis (1791-1856), artist and author, married the brilliant scholar and African traveller Thomas Edward Bowdich and this extraordinary narrative, however farcical, reflects their shared interest in exotic plants and animals. This curious book is an early example of romantic interest in the Australian bush - the Aborigines encountered are initially hostile and later helpful. One of the four plates by Skinner Prout depicts Captain Spencer among his new Aboriginal companions in a spectacular kangaroo hunt.
