        The Beauties of Bloomerism

The pages shaken, detaching from binding, some plates loose in contemporary green morocco with gilt-decorated panels and dentelles. Some pages with grubbiness. The covers with couple marks/rubbed areas, spine rubbed, corners scuffed but still pretty decent shape. Lacking text leaves 3/4 & 9/10.

Although the book requires rebinding it remains a very rare title, records suggesting it has not appeared at auction since 1981.

        THE VIGILANCE COMMITTEE OF SAN FRANCISCO. METCALF vs. ARGENTI et al. SPEECHES OF R.A. LOCKWOOD, ESQ

      San Francisco, 1852. 48pp. Modern three-quarter morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Slight shelf wear. Bookplate on front pastedown. A bit of foxing, light stain in gutter of titlepage. Very good. An important event in the history of the first Vigilance Committee. Rufus Lockwood was Metcalf's lawyer in this bizarre case. Metcalf, a drayman, was accused of stealing goods he was transporting. In the middle of the night, Argenti and a Vigilance Committee group came to Metcalf's house and violently searched it for "stolen items," material actually in a warehouse in transit. Metcalf sued Argenti and his band for damages. The verdict of the case was $200 in compensation for Metcalf, significantly less than the $20,000 he requested. "These speeches of Lockwood are required reading for anyone wishing to understand the dark and cruel side of the activities of the Vigilance Committee" - Streeter. SABIN 41752. COHEN 12019.

        TRAITÉ PRATIQUE DE PHOTOGRAPHIE SUR VERRE, D'APRÈS LES DERNIERS PERFECTIONNEMENTS

      Paris: Ch. Chevalier, Puech et Cie, Guilloux, 1852. First edition. 8vo., 61 pp. Original printed paper wrappers with a release stamp from the S F P [Société Française de Photographie] indicating that this was a duplicate and released for sale in 1971; with the original bookseller's stamp on the front wrapper. The SFP stamp is repeated on the title page, as is the ownership stamp of A. [Aymar] de la Baume Pluvinel. Occasional light foxing, else very good. Housed in a new cloth clamshell box with printed labels. Jules Couppier, a chemist, was a founding member of the Sociéte Française de Photographie (1854) an outgrowth of the first photographic society in the world, Sociéte Héliographique, founded in 1851. In 1848, Abel Niépce de Saint-Victor, the second cousin of the first photographer, J. N. Niépce, and a founder of the Sociéte Héliographique, published a paper in the journal of the Academy of Sciences on his experiments with albumen coated glass plates for obtaining a negative from which a sharper and tonally richer positive print could be obtained. A distinct advantage of this process was that it allowed for the manufacture of the plates in advance of their use; however, the plate had a low sensitivity to light, therefore portraiture was not possible. In this, one of the earliest full manuals covering the albumen negative on glass and positive print processes, Couppier has dedicated it appropriately to Niépce de Saint-Victor. As a skilled chemist, Couppier was able to improve upon many of the earlier difficulties of sensitivity that had limited this process; improved formulas are provided. Couppier is known today for his albumen glass plate stereographs; one from 1859 taken in the cemetery of Melegnano, showing the bodies of over 2000 combatants, is a harsh testament to the brutality of war.The copy of Aymar de la Baume Pluvinel (1860 - 1938) an accomplished astronomer and astrophotographer, the first to photograph the surface of Mars through a telescope, and author of scientific works, including, LA THÉORIE DES PROCÉDÉS PHOTOGRAPHIQUES.

Lichtspuren, durch die schlechte Papierqualität stark gebräunt u. z. Tl. randrissig, Text abgegriffen u. z.Tl. fingerfl., mehrf. gestemp. (?Dr. Mascha, Wien, 13/9, Wambachergasse 14?), 1 Umschlag m. dem Stempel ?Verein der Plakatfreunde E.V.? [Berlin]. Die letzten Korrekturfahnen des bis heute grundlegenden Werks, in dem erstmals die Entwicklung dieser neuen Kunstform in Österreich-Ungarn dargestellt wurde. Dieses Werk stellt die Grundlage aller späteren Publikationen zum Thema dar und ist mittlerweile selbst zu einem ebenso raren Sammlerobjekt geworden. Schließlich erschien es aufgrund der Kriegszeit in einer kleinen Auflage von lediglich 230 Exemplaren (200 Exemplaren als Leinenausgabe u. 30 Ex. als nummerierte Vorzugausgabe, in Leder gebunden und auf Japanpapier gedruckt). Vorliegender Korrekturabzug ist auf einem schlechteren Papier gedruckt als die spätere Druckausgabe des Werkes. Durchgehend mit Verbesserungen und Anstreichungen durch die Hand des Verfassers (mit Tinte und Rotstift). Die Tafeln - mit Ausnahme der Tafel 17 ?Schiele, Egon. Shaw oder die Ironie, Vorlesung Egon Friedell? ? sind der vorliegenden Korrekturfahne nicht beigegeben. Das Schiele-Plakat mit 3 Farbauszügen in Beilage (mit denen im Zusammendruck alle vorkommenden Farben wiedergegeben werden können. In Platte: ?Bestimmt Rot? ?Bestimmt Schwarz?). Die Abbildungen, die in der Buchausgabe in den Text gedruckt waren, sind hier montiert. 17 sind leider nicht vorhanden. Die Korrekturen wurden weitgehend übernommen wie ein Vergleich mit einem Exemplar der späteren Druckausgabe ergeben hat. - Ottokar Mascha (1852-1929) war der erste, der sich in Österreich nicht nur als qualifizierter Sammler, sondern auch als kenntnisreicher Publizist mit dem Thema ?Plakat? beschäftigte. M. war zunächst in Prag und dann ab 1897 in Wien als Rechtsanwalt tätig. Als es 1912 zur Gründung der ?Wiener Bibliophilen-Gesellschaft? kam, war Mascha unter dem Vorsitzenden, dem damaligen Leiter des Hofburgtheaters Hugo Thimig, als ?Schatzmeister? Mitglied des Vorstandes. 1912 stellte Mascha einen bedeutenden Teil seiner Sammlung für die damals viel beachtete, erste repräsentative Plakat-Ausstellung Österreichs in der Wiener Secession zur Verfügung und lieferte einen fundierten Beitrag für den Katalog der Schau. 1917 schenkte M. einen Großteil seiner Plakatsammlung der damaligen Kaiserlichen Hofbibliothek und schuf damit den Anstoß und die Grundlagen für die bedeutende Plakatsammlung der Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek. Durch die wirtschaftlichen Probleme der Kriegs- und Nachkriegszeit sah sich M. nach und nach genötigt, die noch bei ihm verbliebenen Teile seiner Sammlungen über den Kunstmarkt zu veräußern. (vgl. dazu Denscher, Bernhard. Der Plakatsammler Ottokar Mascha). - DIESES OBJEKT UNTERLIEGT DER DIFFERENZBESTEUERUNG.

        Trial of Colonel David Pinniger, Lt Col William P. Maxwell, Major...

      1852. 1808 Court Martial of Rhode Island Militia Officers Who Refused to Select Six Guardsmen for Federal Service [Trial]. [Court Martial]. [Kentish Guards]. Trial of Colonel David Pinniger, Lt. Col. William P. Maxwell, Major Nathan Whiting, Captain Allen Tillinghast: Officers of the Kentish Guards, Before a General Court-Martial Holden at the Court-House, In Providence, April 27, 1808, For Disobedience of Orders and Neglect of Duty. Warren [RI]: Printed by Nathaniel & John F. Phillips, 1808. 41, [4] pp. Errata slip pasted to verso of p.41. Octavo (7-3/4"x 4-3/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet, fragments to wrapper along spine, untrimmed edges. Moderate toning, early owner signature to verso of final leaf. * Only edition. Formed in 1774, the Kentish Guards of Rhode Island boasted General Nathanael Greene as an original officer. The Guards distinguished themselves at the Siege of Boston and elsewhere. In 1807 Colonel David Pinniger refused an order to select six guardsmen for federal service, asserting that the Guards's charter permitted the call up of the entire unit, but not individual soldiers. Pinniger's refusal precipitated his court martial and that of the fellow officers who supported him. All were removed from office without further penalty. The guards elected replacement officers; no one went into the U.S. Army. This pamphlet was published by the officers after the "unfavorable result" of the court martial in order to protect their reputations. All aspects of the case are covered.

        Autograph Letter, Signed, To Jeremiah Morrow, Cincinnati, August 10...

      1852. Memories of Ohio Governor Jeremiah Morrow by by an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court McLean, John [1785-1861]. [Adair, Robert F.]. Morrow, Jeremiah (1771-1852)]. [Autograph Letter, Signed, To Robert F. Adair, Cincinnati, OH, August 10, 1852]. Single leaf folded to form bifolium and a single leaf, all 10-1/2" x 8-1/2," franked on verso of single leaf. Content in neat hand to rectos and versos of bifolium leaves. Light toning, vertical and horizontal fold lines, small losses at wax seal causing very small text loss, but no loss of legibility, minor edgewear and a few short tears to margins. This letter is accompanied by a contemporary 4-1/2" x 3-1/2" copperplate portrait of McLean (on a 9" x 6" leaf). $950. * A substantive 4-1/2 page letter by U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice John McLean about late Ohio congressman, senator, and governor, Jeremiah Morrow, who died five months earlier. McLean had served in Congress with Morrow. Appointed by President Andrew Jackson, McLean is best remembered today as the senior Supreme Court justice, and one of only two justices, who dissented in Dred Scott v. Sanford. During the 1850s, when Chief Justice Roger B. Taney was frequently ill, McLean who presided over the Court. In this letter, McLean replies to a query about Morrow from Robert F. Adair and here appends a four-page memoir of his late friend. Robert F. Adair of Maysville, Kentucky may possibly be silversmith Robert Farriss Adair (1833-1907). Justice McLean writes: "Many years ago I was well acquainted with Mr. Morrow, having served with him in Washington, and lived in the same county with him in Ohio." McLean directs Adair to write to "Howard Dunlevy Esquire" who lived only six miles from Governor Morrow. Almost like a postscript, McLean writes "[a] very hasty sketch of Morrow." Much more than a sketch, it almost four pages in length and includes biographical facts and, more interestingly, personal observations, anecdotes and judgments.

These two pamphlets, published during his brief period in Nice by the Russian exiled socialist, proposing that Russia could become the first socialist country because of the communal traditions of its peasantry, were laughed at by Marx and Engels, then considered prophecy by the Soviets. Considering the methods used by Stalin to socialize Russian farms, Marx and Engels were probably right. These are important documents of the Russian Revolutionary movement. Stock#NS0016.

      Edinburgh, Scotland: Johnstone and Hunter, 1852. The author citation on the title page states, A Naturalist. Actual name of author is Ignaz Edler von Born. Later edition. First edition believed to be 1783. Published and printed by Johnstone and Hunter, Edinburgh.

Very slightly bumped spine head and tail, and gently bumped corners. On the whole a clean and presentable binding. Text block firmly bound in. 8.5 x 5.25 inches. A.E.G. With 77 numbered pages. With frontispiece, elaborate title page design, and 17 full-page engraved plates, many in sepia-tone. Rear hinge cracked but holding nicely. Scattered light spotting/foxing to the front preliminaries. Else a very clean copy and still rather tight. A clear plastic wrapper protects the book. A Very Good copy. Either hilarious or offensive, depending on one's point of view. A send-up of popery in general and the monastic orders in particular and using the vehicle of Linnaean taxonomy. With thanks to Time Heals for the following: "A satire by a scientist and former Jesuit, first published in 1783. Born (1742-1791) was Austrian by birth and educated at a Jesuit college in Vienna. He spent 16 months as a member of the order before leaving... Born was known for his satire, especially of the Jesuits. In this work he studies the habits and habitats of that most pernicious of species - the clerical Monk.". Decorative Boards. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
