THE FIRST CHROMOLITHOGRAPH ILLUSTRATIONS TO APPEAR IN AN AMERICAN BOOK, as well as the first time Miller's chromolithographs were published in a book.

"Most of the letters are entitled: 'Letters from the sporting grounds.' Three letters of October 3 in the Courier were not reprinted in the Spirit. They are critical of the landlords of Lake Pleasant.

        NEW VARIETIES OF GOLD AND SILVER COINS, COUNTERFEIT COINS, AND BULLION; WITH MINT VALUES

      New York, 1851. Original gilt cloth. Slight repair at head of spine. Very minor scattered foxing. Bright and very good. Second edition, "rearranged, with numerous additions," after the first Philadelphia edition of the previous year. The authors were the official assayers for the Philadelphia Mint at the time of this work's publication, and the book was intended as a guide for those unfamiliar with recent advances in coinage and assaying. The text includes much data regarding the recent strikes in California, and devotes an entire chapter to the analysis of the quality of ore coming from California. The black and white plates depict various gold coins produced in the United States, including California bullion struck by private firms. There is also a discussion of the coinage of various countries of the world, including the TONG TSIEN of China, a "trashy coin...extremely convenient for alms-giving, a single piece being the usual quietus for a beggar."

Born in 1816 in the small town of Tizayuca in what is now the state of Hidalgo, Rodriguez Galvan is widely credited with being the initiator of the Romantic movement in Mexico. He wrote novels, poetry, plays, and was the editor of several periodicals, most especially Calendario de las Señoritas Mexicanas and Año Nuevo, El Recreo de las Familias. He died of yellow fever in Havana in 1842 at the age of 27 while en route to South America on a diplomatic mission. A few of the poems in vol. I were penned in => Havana before his death. These volumes offer his "Composiciones líricas originales" in vol. I and "Composiciones dramáticas originales" in vol. II. The frontispiece is a fine lithographic portrait of Don Ignacio, in Romantic style of course; there is a liberal use of handsome tailpieces. The whole was compiled and edited by the author's brother Antonio. => This first edition is uncommon in our experience as dealers in Mexicana. Provenance: Masonic stamp, "Porfirio del Rio" on title-page; inscription to fly-leaf of A. Quijano, 1916. Handsome contemporary quarter red morocco with red mottled paper sides, boards rubbed; spine exuberantly tooled in gilt, bright. Foxing and spotting variously; provenance indications as above.

        Regulations for the Uniform & Dress of the Army of the United States June 1851 From the original text and drawings in the War Department

      Philadelphia: William H. Horstmann & Sons, 1851. Folio. (14 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches). 25 lithographic plates by P.S. Duval after G.C. Humphries (5 printed in colours, 6 hand-coloured). (Occasional small chips to margins of plates and first few leaves of text). Original grey paper-covered limp boards, blue/grey title label on upper cover, rebacked with green cloth. (Extremities worn, corners rounded) Modern cloth box with leather label. In a modern clamshell box. First edition of this rare colour-plate book recording the uniform and dress of the mid-19th century United States Army This work was published by William H. Hortsmann and Sons, "military furnishers" of Philadelphia: established in 1815, they were the country's leading military outfitters throughout the nineteenth century and well into the twentieth. The plates, drawn by G.C. Humphries, were presumably used by Hortsmann, in conjunction with the text, to explain to customers what they were entitled to wear; the official nature of the work being emphasized by the facsimile endorsments on each plate by the Adjutant General. The attractive plates are ably executed in lithography by P.S. Duval, one of the leading lithographic printers of the time. They consist of five chromolithographic images showing 19 full-length views of various ranks and regiments within the US Army; followed by 16 plates of details of uniforms (4 partially or completely hand-coloured); 2 plates of swords; and ending with coloured plates of "horse furniture." The text reprints the relevant regulations concerning the dress-code for officers and enlisted men, including members of the topographical engineers, dragoons, and cadets. Not in Bennett or McGrath; Sabin 68957 (an apparent variant, with all 25 plates coloured).

        The Forrest Divorce Suit, Report of the Trial of Catherine N Forrest.

      1851 - Complete Account of a Notable 1851 New York Divorce Trial [C] [Trial]. Forrest, Catherine Norton (Sinclair), Plaintiff. The Forrest Divorce Suit, Report of the Trial of Catherine N. Forrest vs. Edwin Forrest. For Divorce, Held in the Superior Court of New York, Dec., 1851. Before Chief Justice Oakley and a Special Jury. Reported by the Law Reporter of the New York Herald. New York: Printed at the Herald Book and Job Office, 1851. 120, 81-185, [3] pp. Two woodcut portraits in text (at pp. 96-97). Format changes from single to double columns at p. 81 of the second paging sequence. The verdict, printed after the publication of the book, is pasted to the foot of p. 185 and its verso. Complete as issued. Contemporary three-quarter morocco over cloth, gilt rules to boards, raised bands, gilt ornaments and gilt title to spine, patterned endleaves. Light rubbing to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends and corners, early owner bookplate to front pastedown. Moderate toning to text, occasional light foxing, repair to margin of pp. 99-100, a few minor tears to final leaf of text. Early owner signature to front free endpaper, "No 5" to head of title page in early hand, interior otherwise clean. * Only edition. Edwin Forrest was a famous New York Shakespearean actor who filed for divorce in Philadelphia on the grounds of adultery, having found his wife with another actor. His wife countersued in New York. The trial lasted six weeks with a judgment against Mr. Forrest, who went on to appeal the case five times. As one would expect, this celebrity trial attracted a great deal of attention, in part though Mr. Forrest's efforts. A larger-than-life figure, his notoriety from the trial filled theaters, where he gave passionate speeches about the trial during intermissions. As printed, this book ends with the retirement of the jury. The verdict, included in our copy, was printed later in the New York Evening Post with instructions to cut and past the verdict into the endleaves of the book. Some copies do not have the verdict, other copies have it pasted on one or more leaves, which is why collations of this book differ.

        THE KING OF THE GOLDEN RIVER; OR, THE BLACK BROTHERS: A LEGEND OF STIRIA

      London: Smith Elder & Co., 1851 [December 1850]. First edition, 18 x 13.5cm (8vo), in publisher's cream paper-covered boards w/printed border, title & designs by Doyle to fr. cover, printed borders & central device to rear, a.e.g., coated decorative pale green ep.s w/binder's ticket (Westleys & Co., London; Ball 103B) to rear pastedown, [i-vi], [1] 2-52 pp. w/24 wood engravings (incl. fr. cover designs, frontis & prelim titlepage designs) by the Dalziels, Harvey Orrin Smith, Isabel Thompson etc. after Doyle, +2pp. publ. adverts to rear (undated, but obviously from Dec. 1850).  Printed by Henry Vizetelly, London.  Interestingly, Doyle misspelt the title's final word on his woodblock for the prelim titlepage as "STYRIA" & to correct this the engraver trimmed off the right-hand upward angle of the "Y" creating a crooked "I"; however, the misspelling remains uncorrected in the fr. cover design.  Inscribed to verso of fr. ep.: "Rose Emma Fawcett from her affecte Papa, Novbr 7th 1852."  Binding Good (expertly rebacked w/ivory linen, corners worn w/moderate paper loss, & a few rub spots & scratches to paper); contents Very Good (occas. lt. thumbing, & several illus. lightly coloured by a prev. owner).  Slater 226-27, Ashley IV 181 ("it is important that the original covers should be preserved, as the design upon the front includes two [wood]cuts which are not reproduced in the body of the work"), Ray 142 (Doyle "made a little masterpiece of Ruskin's fairy tale"--see also pp.xxii, 87 & 88), de Beaumont 348; see also Wolff 5993a Note.  Together with a brilliant copy of the first American edition, Boston: Mayhew & Baker, 1860, 18 x 13.5cm (small 4to), in publisher's crimson morocco-grain cloth w/embossed borders to covers, gilt decoration to fr. cover, gilt title to fr. cover & spine, a.e.g., cream ep.s, [1-13] 14-68 pp. w/numerous wood engravings after Doyle, the originals re-engraved by Kilburn & Mallowry, Boston.  Printed by H.O. Houghton & Co., Cambridge MA.  Binding Near-Fine (minor staining & bubbling to ep.s); contents Near-Fine.  Both volumes enclosed in a fine custom-made pale tan linen clamshell box w/gilt title on brown morocco label to spine.  As Osborne (which has the 2nd British ed.) reports, "in 1841 the twelve-year-old Euphemia (Effie) Chalmers Gray dared Ruskin ... to write a fairy tale for her."  Ruskin & Effie were married in 1848, but 7 years later she filed for annulment claiming that Ruskin was unwilling to consummate the marriage--whether or not this was merely a ploy to gain her freedom so she could marry her not-so-secret lover John Everett Millais has long been a topic of discussion (Effie's huge commercialistic influence on Millais's subsequent career has elicited the sarcastic speculation that had Ruskin remained married to her, he would have written "Bubbles").
