John Milton
Boston Or New York: Phillips, Sampson And Company. 1854 Poetical Works Of John Milton A New Edition with notes and A Life of the Author by John Milton Vol I & II Boston Phillips, Sampson & Co. New York: James C. Derby 1854. Vol I is 371 pages. The front & back cover are securely attached to the spine. The spine shows some wear on the outer top and bottom leather portions. Both the front and back cover inside and out are marbles as well as the edges of the pages. Upon opening the book, there are your usual age spots, but no water damage. Vol II is 478 pages. The blank page after the last page has a corner cut off (about 1 inch). Both the front and back cover inside and out are marbles as well as the edges of the pages. The front cover has completely pulled away from the binding. The front cover is sturdy and could be rebound. The spine has pulled away and is still attached at the back seam. There is some portion of the leather spine missing from both the top and bottom portion. The first 3 pages have a slight bottom right corner mark and beyond the 3rd page, the remainder pages are remarkably very clean and crisp. The pages are stiff and I think this book was never read or opened much. Please note, I am not a book expert. I have tried to accurately and honestly describe the condition of both books. Please look at all 12 photos and PLEASE ask questions.

Thomas L. McKenney and James Hall
Philadelphia: D. Rice & A. N. Hart. INDIAN TRIBES OF NORTH AMERICA 1854. I'll begin by stating emphatically that I am not a professional book seller or grader. I maybe at a disadvantage in grading systems but I'll do my best to give you my honest opinion on condition and issues these books my have. I want the buyer to be happy with no unexpected surprises. I would characterize the overall condition of all 3 books as decent. Not good, not poor, but generally decent. All 3 books' front and back covers have been repaired (on the inside of books) with some sort of heavy colored tape (see photo). Some young aspiring artist made marks in pencil and a couple in ink(all pencil marks were erased by me and are not, or barely noticeable) on some of the pages including on a few of the portraits. I did not attempt to erase the marks on the portraits for fear of ruining the color. I believe 4 or 5 of the portraits had marks (I took a photo of the worst, which is the last photo in the listing). The spines (especially Volume 2) have some issues and the outer book covers are stained and worn. There is some foxing and discoloration and a few pages look like they've been turned with dirty fingers. In volume 3 the title page is missing and looks to have been cut out and several of the protective tissue pages are missing in all 3 volumes. With all the negative comments out of the way,,,these books are absolutely amazing! The art and hand colored lithographs are stunning and the colors are vibrant and jump right off the page. I know these books are historically and culturally important, but the … [Click Below for Full Description]

ont> Richard Milliken and Son: Dublin, 1854. Ont> Richard Milliken and Son: Dublin Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). The first and only edition of this very scarce first-hand account of the Battle of Waterloo. Signed by the author, dedicated to Lord Raglan, the military secretary to the Duke of Wellington and commander in the Crimean War. With the folding map to the rear in a bright condition. Scarce, with only four copies of this work, all held at deposit libraries. Dedicated to Raglan from the author to the recto of front endpaper, 'Lord Fitzroy Somerset from the Author Major Gawler'. With Lord Raglan's bookplate to the front pastedown, alongside a bookplate for Cefntilla. Cefntilla Court which belonged to Richard Somerset, 2nd Baron Raglan. Following the death of his father, 1st Baron Raglan, a large group of his friends, admirers and comrades purchased the house and estate as a memorial to him.

Jean Baptiste COROT (Parigi 1796 - 1875)
Cliché-verre, 1854, privo di firma. Magnifica prova, edita dall'editore Sagot & Le Garrec nel 1921, impressa su carta coeva, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Il cliché-verre è una innovativa tecnica incisoria introdotta intorno alla metà dell'Ottocento, che associava l'antica e paziente attività dell'artista incisore all'innovazione portata dall'invenzione della fotografia. Le incisioni su vetro non soltanto sono uno dei capisaldi dell'arte ottocentesca, ma costituiscono, nella loro unità dei valori, l'unico importante e organico tramite che unisce, in campo grafico, Romanticismo e Impressionismo. Hanno inoltre, per il nostro secolo, una speciale importanza culturale e storica: esse sono il primo esempio notevole di unione fra civiltà tecnica e arte. Cliché-verre, or glass print, without signature. A fine impression, printed on contemporary vowe paper, perfect condition. Published by Sagot & Le Garrec in 1921. Cliché-verre is an ambivalent thing, an inanity, the zero point in the graphic arts of the second half of the 19th century. The wide variety of terms used to describe this phenomenon in itself speaks volumes: "dessin sur verre pour photographie", "photogenic drawing", "dessin héliographique", "Hyalographie" (glass print), and "etching on glass". Situated somewhere between drawing, printing and photography, cliché-verre seems from the outset to have eluded firm definition; and even before agreement was reached on a term for it, the phenomenon of cliché-verre had already disappeared.

William Leeke
1854. ont> Hatchards : London 52 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. The first edition of the scarce supplement volume to William Leeke's history of the 52nd Light Infantry at the Battle of Waterloo. With a fascinating association. With the bookplate of Lord Raglan and of Cefntilla Court to the front pastedown. Raglan served in many military campaigns such as the Peninsular War and the Hundred Days. At Waterloo Raglan served on Wellington's staff. He later became the commander of the British troops sent to Crimea in 1854. Whilst in Crimea he was ordered to besiege Sevastopol. His command lead to the fateful Charge of the Light Brigade at the Battle of Balaclava. This is the scarce supplement volume only. Illustrated, with two plates. Collated, complete. This supplement consists mostly of William Leeke's replies to criticisms of the guards and others on the original two volume work. When the work was first published there was quite the controversy since he claimed that the defeat of Napoleon's Imperial Guard was the result of the 52nd Foot alone, under the command of Seaton. It also contains additional information regarding the close of the action. These letters first appeared in the 'Army and Navy Gazette of 1867'. With the errata to the verso of title page. In the publisher's original binding, which is in a smart condition. Leeke was a British Army officer and clergyman. This work on the Waterloo Campaign formed a primary source for many subsequent histories of the campaign and was Leeke's best known title. Condition: In the publisher's original cloth binding.

1854. Vintage! This book looks like it has been through the Crimean War. This vintage book was discovered when a friend of mine, who had lived in Russia a while back, was cleaning out his basement in preparation for an upcoming move. In trying to translate the first lines of Russian to English using Google (which was a fun exercise in de-coding), it translated into "Panorama of the Siege of Sevastopol". According to Wikipedia, the Siege of Sevastopol was the last episode in the Crimean War. The Siege of Sevastopol was also the subject of Leo Tolstoy's "Sebastopol Sketches" as well as the subject of the first Russian feature film, "Defense of Sevastopol". Even the panorama is famous (having its own Wikipedia entry), being made famous in 1854-1855. It is uncertain when this one-of-a-kind book was created. I can find no reference to it on Google or eBay. There is some handwriting in it, though as I didn't try translating that Russian to English, it might as well be a note from Marx to Putin, so I'll leave that up to the professional code-breakers and translators. The handwritten note seems to be dated 1956 - or about 100 years after the event. I am not a vintage book expert so will let the market decide the price of this masterpiece. Please send me an offer if you're interested and/or any relevant information you might have on this piece. It will ship to you securely and I will pay for the shipping with insurance myself. Please bid with confidence given 100% positive feedback as both buyer and seller.

Light toning to leaves, text in neat hand to rectos and versos of all leaves, main text preceded by index. * This fascinating mid-19th century collection of 170 cases heard in the Rhode Island Supreme Court was probably compiled by a law student or attorney. Enhanced by an index, they are, in effect, manuscript case reports. All appear to have been compiled in the courtroom and enhanced afterwards with notes and references. Some of these contain references to cases dating as far back as the 1820s.

Yale, AAS, and Syracuse only in OCLC. Address of the Free Soil Party, now calling itself the Free Democracy, of New York, in condemnation of the Kansas-Nebraska bill. "Slavery is the one element that disturbs our peace and threatens our stability. Originally sectional and local, it openly aims to become national and universal ... The power of deciding it is in your hands ... Let each citizen, who has felt the insult and wrong of the Nebraska perfidy, remember his personal responsibility, and swell by his vote that record of condemnation which, gathering from state to state, is about to fill Congress with honest representatives, who will convince the slave power that 'there is a North'."

Miller, Alfred J., and Charles Wilkins Webber
George P. Putnam and Co, New York, 1854. 8vo. Original publisher's maroon marbled cloth, cover with elaborate blocked design in gilt and blind with large central sunken lozenge blocked with a gilt vignette of the "southern mocking bird" signed "Tompson" (in reverse), derived from the plate facing p. 66. Illustrated with chromolithographed plates, drawn on stone by Max Rosenthal, printed by L.N. Rosenthal of Philadelphia after Mrs. Webber (15) or Miller (5) . The binding has been expertly and nearly invisibly rebacked (indeed, we had to use magnification to confirm the reback), with the inner hinges strengthened. Some tissue guards are torn, and there is occasional light spotting on the plates, an offset form the guards. Miller's contribution consists of five views of Indian life, four of which, according to the author, are of "scenes in the camp of the Delawares," although they are almost certainly based on the artist's sketches of the Snake Indians (a sub-group of the Shoshone). The five prints in the present work were drawn on stone by Max Rosenthal. Two of them include images of bare-breasted Indian maidens, which were later withdrawn and reissued with the women fully clothed. The prints are titled: 1. Indian Caressing His Horse; 2. Encampment of Indians; 3. Toilet of the Indian Girls; 4. Antelope Chase; 5. Indian Girl Swinging. The remaining prints in the present work are from drawings of birds (13) and flowers (2) by the wife of the author Bennett p.111; Reese 28; Ripley p.307; Tyler Prints of the American West pp.64-5; Zimmer p.667.

Extremely Rare in this condition ! This is NOT a former library copy !

He graduated from the University of Edinburgh Medical School with an MD in 1825 later returning the practice in Dublin at Meath Hospital. he went on to create two important works on cardiac and pulmonary diseases - A Treatise on the Diagnosis and Treatment of Diseases of the Chest (1837) and The Diseases of the Heart and Aorta (1854) - as well as one of the first treatises on the use of the stethoscope. He emphasised the importance of clinical examination in forming diagnoses, and of ward-based learning for students of medicine. Both Cheyne-Stokes breathing (the alternation of apnoea with tachypnoea) and Stokes-Adams syndrome are named after him. Stokes' sign is a severe throbbing in the abdomen, at the right of the umbilicus, in acute enteritis. Stokes law is that a muscle situated above an inflamed membrane is often affected with paralysis.

Graham, Andrew J., ed
New York: Andrew Graham, 1854. Likely the complete run of this short-lived advocate for phonotypy, 8vo, contiguous pagination, pp. 216; bound with: Pitman, Benn, and R. P. Prosser. The reporter's manual and vocabulary. Cincinnati: Phonographic Institute, 1854; First edition, pp 15 (manual only, lacking the vocabulary); Contemporary blue cloth, corners bumped, spine label partially perished, pastedowns lifted up to reveal binding wastepaper (more phonographic material); very good and sound. Andrew Graham is best known for his modification of Pitman's shorthand system, which saw broad use in the United States. His newsletter, The cosmotype, appears to have only lasted for nine months. Westby-Gibson notes that it was commenced and discontinued in 1854, and online records do not indicate any issues after September. Content wise it is a smattering of novelties on science and society, plus a great deal on phonography and spelling reform, including news and reviews, and a few articles written in phonetic type. Examples of news are notices of the adoption of phonetic type among the Mormons and the missionaries to the Mikmak, and a notice of a delay in printing due to a lack of compositors who were familiar with phonetic type. Rare, NYPL and AAS only.

Thomas L. McKenney and James Hall
Philadelphia: D. Rice & A. N. Hart. INDIAN TRIBES OF NORTH AMERICA 1854. I'll begin by stating emphatically that I am not a professional book seller or grader. I maybe at a disadvantage in grading systems but I'll do my best to give you my honest opinion on condition and issues these books my have. I want the buyer to be happy with no unexpected surprises. I would characterize the overall condition of all 3 books as decent. Not good, not poor, but generally decent. All 3 books' front and back covers have been repaired (on the inside of books) with some sort of heavy colored tape (see photo). Some young aspiring artist made marks in pencil and a couple in ink(all pencil marks were erased by me and are not, or barely noticeable) on some of the pages including on a few of the portraits. I did not attempt to erase the marks on the portraits for fear of ruining the color. I believe 4 or 5 of the portraits had marks (I took a photo of the worst, which is the last photo in the listing). The spines (especially Volume 2) have some issues and the outer book covers are stained and worn. There is some foxing and discoloration and a few pages look like they've been turned with dirty fingers. In volume 3 the title page is missing and looks to have been cut out and several of the protective tissue pages are missing in all 3 volumes. With all the negative comments out of the way,,,these books are absolutely amazing! The art and hand colored lithographs are stunning and the colors are vibrant and jump right off the page. I know these books are historically and culturally important, but the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Woodland, SC, 1854. 10" x 7.75", 1 pp., mail folds, rice paper mounting strip attached to rear left margin, otherwise fine. Content; Cheerful, friendly letter discussing upcoming schedules, deadlines and holiday wishes; "The Eve of Christmas, my dear.write in the wish that yours may be a happy one."; "I give up the Review and have to deliver orations and lectures in Charleston & have a work pledged to the publisher by the 1st of March. I feel at 48 older 60 - have grown 20 years older in the last 5 years. But there is life." Feeling the burden of his work demands and a sick son, "One of my little boys has fever", Simms ruminates, "There is an escape from toil one day or another." William Gilmore (1806-1870) was born in Charleston, S.C., and lived much of his life in or near it, making frequent visits to northern publishing centers and to the Gulf Coast and the southern mountains. . Had the prize existed, he clearly would have earned at least one Pulitzer Prize for fiction. His extensive knowledge of southern regions influenced novels and tales set in the Low Country, such as The Yemassee (1835), The Partisan (1835), and The Golden Christmas (1852), which trace the development of the region from the colonial era through the Revolution and into the antebellum period In addition to fiction, poetry, drama, orations, and literary criticism, he wrote a history and a geography of South Carolina and biographies of Francis Marion, Captain John Smith, the Chevalier Bayard, and Nathanael Greene. At the beginning and near the end of his career, he edited several South Carolina newspape … [Click Below for Full Description]

SERGEANT-MAJOR EDWARD COTTON
1854. /font> Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The fourth edition of this account of the Battle of Waterloo written by a soldier in the Napoleonic Wars, with a fascinating association relating to Wellington's personal staff. With the bookplate of Lord Raglan to the front pastedown, and the library plate of Cefntilla Court to the recto of front endpaper. Raglan served in many military campaigns such as the Peninsular War and the Hundred Days. At Waterloo Raglan served on Wellington's staff.

He notes to the preface 'I have had great advantages in communicating personally on the spot with 'Waterloo men' of every nation; all of whom, from the general to the private, have evidently considered it, at once … [Click Below for Full Description]

Graham, Andrew J., ed
Andrew Graham, New York, 1854. Likely the complete run of this short-lived advocate for phonotypy, 8vo, contiguous pagination, pp. 216; bound with: Pitman, Benn, and R. P. Prosser. The reporter's manual and vocabulary. Cincinnati: Phonographic Institute, 1854; First edition, pp 15 (manual only, lacking the vocabulary); Contemporary blue cloth, corners bumped, spine label partially perished, pastedowns lifted up to reveal binding wastepaper (more phonographic material); very good and sound. Andrew Graham is best known for his modification of Pitman's shorthand system, which saw broad use in the United States. His newsletter, The cosmotype, appears to have only lasted for nine months. Westby-Gibson notes that it was commenced and discontinued in 1854, and online records do not indicate any issues after September. Content wise it is a smattering of novelties on science and society, plus a great deal on phonography and spelling reform, including news and reviews, and a few articles written in phonetic type. Examples of news are notices of the adoption of phonetic type among the Mormons and the missionaries to the Mikmak, and a notice of a delay in printing due to a lack of compositors who were familiar with phonetic type. Rare, NYPL and AAS only. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

First Printing of this ephemeral pamphlet, published the same year as pp.463-475[+4 unnumbered leaves of plates] of Report of the Sanitary Commission of New Orleans on the Epidemic Yellow Fever of 1853. "The subsoil upon which our city stands, consists mainly of exceedingly fine quartzose clay, being a pure earthy deposit from the turbid waters of the river, in former times. Water permeates the subsoil very slowly. It is naturally almost deficient in putrescent elements; nor can it give transit to gaseous emanations from the deep underlying, unexplored strata, to an amount sufficient to be prejudicial to human health. Let us but keep the surface clean and sweet, let us abolish from our midst, all stagnant pools of water, and all exposed reservoirs of putrefying filth, and let us moreover effectually drain the swamps in our neighborhood, and New Orleans will probably become as noted for its salubrity, as it now is for its devastating epidemics."[p.15] John Leonard Riddell(1807-1865) was Professor of Chemistry at the University o … [Click Below for Full Description]

THOREAU, HENRY DAVID
Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1854. FIRST EDITION. A handsome copy of Walden, published in an edition of 2000 copies. The charm of its vignettes of nature was considered its most attractive feature at that time, but its telling satire of the American business economy, its advocacy of the virtues of simple life, and its Transcendentalist endorsement of sturdy individualism have won it an ever-increasing number of readers It has become one of the bestselling American nonfiction classics and has been translated into virtually every major modern language. The word Walden has become a universal synonym for a personal utopia (ANB). I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion (Thoreau). The image of the solitary Thoreau writing in his cabin at Walden Pond is firmly impressed on the American imagination. This book contains s … [Click Below for Full Description]
