        Freight Engine. New York & Erie R.R. An original drawing

      Susquehanna Depot 1855 - Pencil, pen and ink. Signed in ink: "Theodore Krausch. Susquehana [sic] Depot. N.Y. and Erie Railroad. October 13, 1855." A very handsome drawing of a locomotive by a prominent inventor and engineer Theodore Krausch, dates unknown, was employed by what was then known as the New York and Erie Railroad at Susquehanna Depot where railway cars and locomotives were designed, built and repaired. The town in northeastern Pennsylvania, just below the New York border and Binghamton, came into existence with the coming of the railroad. Krausch, who obtained several patents during his life, (one for innovations in railway chair design), also received a Silver Medal from the American Institute of the City of New York for a drawing of a locomotive, no doubt similar to this one. During the 1850's, when railway lines and companies were spreading out across the country, each railroad customized its engines and cars to its specific needs. There was a large degree of standardization, and this Krausch drawing is a perfect rendition of the 4-4-0 wheel arrangement and overall design that was used almost universally in 19th century America.

        The Story of the Campaign of Sebastopol, Written in the Camp

      fair to good William Blackwood and Sons Edinburgh 1855 339, illus. (some in color), fold-out map, board corners slightly bumped, cloth worn & sm pcs missing at top & bottom spine edges some foxing to text, minor damp staining on plate at p. 282, some weakness to front board, slight soiling to boards. This early work, by one of the finest mid-nineteenth-century British military authors, is increasingly difficult to find in any condition. Some believe that this work was particularly foundational to the author's later masterpiece, The Operations of War.

        Magnalia Christi Americana; or, the Ecclesiastical History of New England from Its First Planting in the Year 1620, Unto the Year of Our Lord 1698

      Hartford; 1855 & 1853: Silas Andrus and Son Second American edition. Besides his involvement in the Salem witchcraft debacle (1692-93), his most famous legacy is his Puritan epic "Magnalia Christi Americana" which was first published in 1702, an ecclesiastical history of New England in the contemporary tradition of providence literature. In seven books Mather commemorates virtually every aspect of New England's formative period (1620-1698). Mather's Plutarchan biographies of New England's governors and ministers (book 2) are of great interest. In two volumes, (seven parts) portrait frontispieces of Mather, 626 and 681pp., bound in 3/4 brown morocco over brown cloth, raised bands, title gilt, all edges marbled, early owner's bookplate, small newspaper clipping about Mather on front pastedown, faint marginal damp stain to first few leaves of volume two. A very nice set showing general rubbing along spine. This work has become increasingly scarce.[Howes-391) . Octavo.

        Alfred Ross, Melbourne

      London: Leighton Brothers, n.d., but circa, 1855. Engraving, 545 x 400 mm. (sheet size), laid down on publisher's light card, some staining to the card but the image very good and clear. Fine and rare large format engraving of Alfred Ross, Australian merchant, partner of William Westgarth, and eminent member of the Royal Society of Victoria. Alfred Ross (1816-1896) started his career working for the merchant Duncan Dunbar, and in March 1842 arrived in Sydney to work as a representative in Australia. He soon went into business with the Sydney trader Alexander Campbell, but just as quickly dissolved the partnership, setting up on his own in both Sydney, Launceston, and later Melbourne (see his obituary in the Argus, 20 July 1896). Ross was for many years an associate of William Westgarth, and it is therefore particularly significant to note that Ross is here seen seated with a copy of Westgarth's Australia Felix in hand (1848). Ross was also very proud of his involvement with the Royal Society, a private association which encouraged scientific research and the dissemination of new information. Its members included scientists, self-educated enthusiasts, and professional men interested in the advancement of knowledge. The Society funded the the ill-fated Burke and Wills expedition, and also convened the first Australian Antarctic Exploration Committee in 1885. The lithograph is by Charles Blair Leighton (1823-1855), a noted early Victorian portrait and landscape painter who exhibited at the Royal Academy, and a partner in the firm Leighton Brothers of Lambs Conduit Street in London. This is a particularly rare image: we have certainly never handled another copy, and it does not appear to be recorded in any Australian collection. Intriguingly, it is not clear why the lithograph was printed, but given that Westgarth was in England from 1853 until 1855, it is quite possible that he was involved in the production of this image.

        The Seat of the War in the East.

      Day & Son for Colnaghi London -6 1855 - Two series in one volume folio (57.3 x 38 cm). Lithographed title, lith. dedication leaf, [12] pp., 39 pl.; lith. title, [12] pp., 41 pl. -- in all 81 tinted lithographed plates by Walker and Needham among others after Simpson incl. title pages, printed keys on verso of tissue facing the appropriate plates, all captioned and numbered; tears to 2 plates neatly repaired, right margin of one plate slightly creased without affecting the image, very light ocassional browning. Contemporary red half morocco over red cloth, gilt lines to covers, spine with raised bands gilt in compartments, gilt lettering to one, gilt edges; slightly rubbed. Attractively bound copy of the second issue of this celebrated work, with tinted plates, all numbered, and the keys facing the appropriate plates. At the outbreak of the Crimean War, Simpson was engaged upon views of the Baltic battles for Colnaghi and when that firm decided to publish a large illustrated work on the Crimean campaign from sketches made on the spot Simpson was selected for the work on Day's recommendation. He started on short notice, arrived at Balaclava in November 1854, and remained with the British army till the fall of Sebastopol. Simpson was thus a pioneer war-artist, and received several commissions to paint incidents in the war for the Queen. Abbey Travel 237. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Seat of War in the East

      London: Colnaghi, 1855-, 1856. Two volumes, folio, lithographed title and dedication, and 39 tinted or coloured lithographs and 20 sketch keys in the first part and lithograph title and 40 tinted or coloured lithographs and 16 sketch keys in the second part - a total of 81 plates (the title of the second part is plate 37) and 36 sketch keys; a particularly good copy in contemporary half crimson hardgrain morocco, matching cloth sides (stamped with the Spottiswoode crest), all edges gilt. Pioneering war art. First edition of this pioneering work of war art. In 1851 William Simpson moved to London and joined Day and Sons, the first London house to use pictorial lithography. Although he had served his apprenticeship in Glasgow, the techniques were so different, and standards so high, that Simpson felt that he had learnt his profession over again. On Day's recommendation, he was selected to cover the Crimean War, and arrived at Balaclava in November 1854. He immediately set to work on the illustrations that would establish his reputation. His wonderful depictions included highly detailed views of the military actions as well as the people and places of the region. In muted colours, Simpson managed to demonstrate the cycle of boredom and terror that we have come to recognise as warfare. Abbey confirms: 'These plates are indeed an impressive piece of work, not only artistically and technically, but also as pictorial reporting…'. Indeed, the rare quality of his images was such that Queen Victoria commissioned him to paint several pieces illustrating the conflict. Simpson's career culminated in the publication of his India ancient and modern in 1867. He had spent three years touring India, and four subsequent years developing his sketches into watercolours. By 1866 he had delivered two hundred and fifty images to Day and Sons. Heartbreakingly, the firm declared bankruptcy and his work was retained as property of the firm. The publication of the book was bittersweet for Simpson, not least because it contained only fifty of his images. Its proper publication would, no doubt, have resulted in a work on a par with both Hodges and the Daniells. This is a fine copy in its original binding.

The first edition to have DeSilver as publisher, and here including 'A New Map of Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico & the Indian Territories' for the first time: present here as an additional map, un-numbered and not called for in the contents list Despite its title, the Atlas concentrates to a marked degree on the American continent with a city plan of Washington, D.C. and 42 maps of the area, including a fine double-page coast-to-coast map of the United States, and 30 maps of the States and Territories. The un-numbered map of Nebraska, Kansas, etc. is here bound between sheets numbered 37 and 38. S. Augustus Mitchell and his sons were the leading publishers of maps in the United States during most of the nineteenth century. Mitchell had come to Philadelphia around 1830 with the intention of improving the standard of geography textbooks, Philadelphia then being the leading city in America for cartographical publications. A New American Atlas , published in 1831, was his first work. In 1845 he acquired the rights to Tanner's New Universal Atlas (first published in 1836), and in 1846 he published his first edition of the present work. Mitchell continued to publish the atlas until 1850, when he sold the copyright to Cowperthwait & Co. of Philadelphia. Thomas, Cowperthwait & Company published it until the mid-1850s, when it was purchased by Charles De Silver. The Cowperthwait company continued to add, edit, alter and hand-colour the maps.

        On the constitutional and local effects of disease of the supra-renal capsules

      London: Highley, 1855. <p>&#147;The Perfect Description of an Endocrine Disease&#148;</p><p>Addison, Thomas (1793-1860). On the constitutional and local effects of disease of the supra-renal capsules. 4to. viii, 43, [1]pp. 11 hand-colored lithograph plates. London: Samuel Highley, 1855. 327 x 250 mm. Original green cloth stamped in gilt and blind, slightly worn, skillfully recased retaining original endpapers, preserved in a half morocco drop-back box. A little light foxing, stamp on title, but a very fine, bright copy.</p><p>First Edition. &#147;The perfect description of an endocrine disease&#148; (Medvei, p. 226), and one of the most important rarities of 19th century medical literature. Addison&#146;s monograph inaugurated the study of diseases of the ductless glands and the disturbances in chemical equilibrium known as pluriglandular syndromes; it also marks the beginning of modern endocrinology. The present monograph focuses on diseases of the suprarenal capsules and contains the classic description of the endocrine disturbance now known as &#147;Addison&#146;s disease,&#148; and also includes his superb account of pernicious anemia (&#147;Addison&#146;s anemia&#148;), in which he suggested that the existence of anemia together with supra-renal disease was not coincidental. Addison was the first to suggest that the adrenal glands are essential for life, and his monograph inspired a burst of experimental research that led, among other things, to Vulpian&#146;s discovery of adrenalin in 1856.

        ISRAEL POTTER: HIS FIFTY YEARS OF EXILE.

      New York: G. P. Putnam & Co., 1855. - Original deep blue cloth, decorated in blind, lettered in gilt. Endsheets tanned, small, shallow, marginal tidemark at fore-edge of pp. 249-76, a bit of light soiling to cloth, otherwise a very good, or perhaps slightly better, copy, with the gilt leather Brackenburn bookplate of Hugh Walpole. Enclosed in a full morocco folding case. First edition, first printing, with the requisite readings on pp. 141 and 237-9, in the first binding, with ornamented pendants in the spine lettering. The blue cloth binding is very uncommon on this title. For the inspiration for this fictional work, Melville turned to the LIFE AND REMARKABLE ADVENTURES OF ISRAEL R. POTTER (1824). Potter was captured at Bunker Hill and taken to Britain. He escaped and joined in the circle of rebel agents, and saw involvement in many subsequent major events. BAL 13667. WRIGHT II:1700.

        Flower Fables [with a Presentation Inscription by Edward Everett Hale]

      Boston: George W. Briggs & Co., 1855. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. A Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, of Louisa May Alcott&#39;s debut book, a collection of short stories and poems written by her in 1849 -- at age 16 -- for her dear friend, Ellen Emerson, the daughter of Ralph Waldo Emerson, and not published until six years after their writing. [Note: Alcott also wrote "The Inheritance" in 1849, but it was not published until 1997.] This is a Near Fine copy with only tiny bits of wear to the spine ends and tiny rubs to the board corners and a small light area to the front board. The front free endpaper has a small loss at the upper edge. The decorative cloth remains unusually vibrant and bright with the spine being only lightly darkened --- altogether a considerably better copy than we usually see. The front free endpaper also bears a presentation inscription from Edward Everett Hale giving this copy a noteworthy Association. The inscription reads: "Alice Miller,- // With the best wishes of her / old friend E.E. Hale / for the New Year / Jan 1, 1856." Edward Everett Hale was a noted Author, Historian, and Unitarian Minister whose father (Nathan Hale) was the nephew of American Revolutionary War Hero Nathan Hale. Among other works, Hale authored the short story "The Man Without a Country". Hale retired from his ministry in 1899 -- and was succeeded in the pulpit was Edward Cummings, father of E. E. Cummings -- at which time he as considered to be one of the nation&#39;s most important men of letters. Unsurprisingly, Hale and Alcott knew one another and corresponded, and it is thought that Hale, as editor of the "Christian Examiner, Old and New", sought to publish some of Alcott&#39;s work. A statue of Hale by Bela Pratt graces the Boston Public Garden. An altogether Near Fine copy of Louisa May Alcott&#39;s debut book with an excellent Association.
