Alexis de Tocqueville; John Donner (translator)
Harper & Brothers, Publishers. Harper & Brothers, New York, 1856. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. First American Edition. Xi, 344 Pp. Maroon Cloth, Gilt And Stamped In Blind. Inside is quite clean. First American Edition. Hardcover book bound in the publisher's original full cloth-gilt. 20 cm. XI+344 pp. Alexis de Tocqueville Most known for his landmark book Democracy in America , he wrote a historical perspective that analyzes French society before the French Revolution entitled L'Ancien Regime or The Old Regime. He develops his own theories of the causes for the French Revolution but also portrays French attempts to disassociate themselves with the decision making of the Old Regime. During this time, the French nobility lost all connection with the poor and the differences in social classes were so extreme, that even in a post-feudal Paris, the classes could not agree.

Poe, Edgar Allan
Paris: Michel Lévy, 1856. Near fine.. First edition in book form of the first of Baudelaire's highly influential French translations of Edgar Allan Poe. After Poe's death in 1849, the American audience for his works rapidly dwindled. Meanwhile in France, Baudelaire spent nearly two decades translating Poe, believing that Poe's works would be wrongfully forgotten if he did not. Poe's legacy was indeed carried on by his French admirers, including Stéphane Mallarmé and Paul Valéry, who first discovered his work through Baudelaire. Perhaps the most notable reader of this particular translation was Jules Verne, a stockbroker inspired to write his own ballooning adventure - despite knowing nothing about the subject - after reading Poe's "Le canard au ballon" and "Aventure sans pareille d'un certain Hans Pfaall" in this very edition. In 1863, Verne would publish FIVE WEEKS IN A BALLOON, the book that launched his career as a novelist. The first of five anthologies translated by Baudelaire, this book contains also "The Gold Bug" and "The Murders in the Rue Morgue." It was published just one year before Baudelaire's own masterpiece, LES FLEURS DU MAL. A major influence on the development of modern science fiction, Symbolism, and Surrealism.

Original red-orange cloth decoratively stamped in blind on covers. Spine lettered in gilt. Rust-colored endpapers with advertisements on past-downs. Four color lithograph plates and two maps. Seven illustrations in the text. Collating xli, [i, blank], 648, 24 (ads). A near fine copy, partially uncut. A seminal work of African exploration, recording Burton's first expedition into Somalia.

He travelled in the same disguise that took him to Mecca (as an Arab merchant named Haji Mirza Abdullah). It was on this expedition that Burton was first joined by John Speke, who originally helped Burton in Somalia. But differences quickly arose between them, and over the years Speke became Burton's nemesis, taking credit for discovering the source of the Nile and deprecating Burton's work in every sphere.

Both are octavo, with the title pages showing mild foxing. The bit of foxing that is in both volumes tends to be around the plates, but it is mild at best. The binding, hinges and joints are all tight and strong. "Illustrated with up to 300 engravings from sketches by the author." [from the title page] Both volumes contain the fold out maps. The map for volume I is located in the front and the map for the second volume faces page 428. This amazing tale of arctic exploration looking to rescue Sir John Franklin is a riveting read of american and arctic exploration history.

The book is bound in the publisher's brown cloth, lettered and decorated in gilt and blind, it has been neatly re-cased with repairs to the spine ends and corners, the original endpapers and pastedowns have been retained and the gutters discretely repaired. The cloth is slightly faded, more so to the spine, and there are some light marks. The text block is slightly toned and foxed with staining to some pages, to the front pastedown is the armorial bookplate of John Murry of Touchadam and a small Edinburgh bookseller's label, to the rear is a 32 page publisher's catalogue dated January 1856 and to the rear pastedown is a small bookbinder's label. The first book written by the famous Victorian traveller Isabella Bird, who was the first woman to be made a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. It was based upon her 1854 visit to America, written at the age of 25 and published anonymously. It was also one of John Murray III's better gambles, securing a prolific and popular author at the start of her career, he remained Bird's friend throughout his life and the publisher of all her works. Quite rare in trade and commerce. [Attributes: First Edition]

It was based upon her 1854 visit to America, written at the age of 25 and published anonymously. It was also one of John Murray III's better gambles, securing a prolific and popular author at the start of her career, he remained Bird's friend throughout his life and the publisher of all her works. Quite rare in trade and commerce. [Attributes: First Edition]

Ogston, Francis; Alfred Swaine Taylor
Aberdeen, 1856. Ogston, Francis (1803-87). Autograph letter signed to Alfred Swaine Taylor (1806-80). 8pp. on 2 bifolia. Aberdeen, 2 July 1856. 183 x 115 mm. Some rodent damage along central fold affecting a few lines but not obscuring the sense. Very good. Docketed by Taylor. From Francis Ogston, professor of medical logic and jurisprudence at the University of Aberdeen, to Alfred Swaine Taylor, founder of forensic toxicology and author of several classic books on forensic medicine, including Elements of Medical Jurisprudence (1836; Garrison-Morton.com 1738) and On Poisons in Relation to Medical Jurisprudence (1st ed. 1848). Taylor referred to a number of Ogsten's cases in his medico-legal textbooks. Ogsten himself was a writer on forensic medicine, publishing several papers on specific medico-legal topics as well as a collection of Lectures on Medical Jurisprudence (1878). Some of Ogston's children had notable careers as well: His son Alexander Ogston (1844-1929) discovered and named the Staphylococcus bacterium, and his daughters Helen and Constance were active in the women's suffrage movement in the early part of the 20th century. Taylor had written to Ogston asking for information on cases of apoplexy caused by excessive drinking. Ogsten's reply contains detailed descriptions of four cases of "persons in a state of chronic alcoholism dying from rapidly fatal attacks of congestive apoplexy independently of the immediate action of alcohol." In a postscript Ogston added that "in none of the above cases was there anything to indicate death by syncope but on the contrary … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1856. First edition. Second issue (without suppressed appendix iv, as usual). Octavo (8 3/4 x 5 1/2 inches; 222 x 141 mm.). Original red-orange cloth decoratively stamped in blind on covers. Spine lettered in gilt. Rust-colored endpapers with advertisements on past-downs. Four color lithograph plates and two maps. Seven illustrations in the text. Collating xli, [i, blank], 648, 24 (ads). A near fine copy, partially uncut. A seminal work of African exploration, recording Burton's first expedition into Somalia. His purpose was to explore the forbidden Moslem city of Harar (now Ethiopian) and to gather information about the headwaters of the Nile. He travelled in the same disguise that took him to Mecca (as an Arab merchant named Haji Mirza Abdullah). It was on this expedition that Burton was first joined by John Speke, who originally helped Burton in Somalia. But differences quickly arose between them, and over the years Speke became Burton's nemesis, taking credit for discovering the source of the Nile and deprecating Burton's work in every sphere.

JONES, Owen
London: Day and Son, 1856. Folio. With 102 chromolithograph plates. Contemporary black morocco. First edition of this renowned history of ornament, Jones' seminal global design sourcebook for which he is best known today. The text was derived from a series of lectures given by Jones as well as his articles on design theory and history. He here provides a list of 37 propositions that outline his principles of good design and coloring. Jones provides illustrated examples of ornament organized by region or historical period. The final chapter focuses on "leaves and flowers from nature," which encourages the use of natural forms in design. Grammar of ornament was widely adopted as a textbook in schools for designers as it provided examples for artists to copy as well as theory.

Republican Party Campaign
Boston: John P. Jewett & Co., 1856. This was the platform for the first national Presidential election (1856) with a Republican candidate, John C. Frémont. A RARE publication in its own right ( Rare Book Hub notes last copy appearing in a dealer catalog in 1970). This copy rendered unique and historically significant by the original owner's addition of 78 blank pages which he mostly filled with pasted in contemporaneous newspaper clippings, including 7 pp. of the Democratic Party Platform of 1856. Other significant clippings are headed: The Sanford Letter, Wash. Aug. 21 1848 2 pp.; Kansas Affairs-Official Instructions to Gov. Geary and Gen. Smith Wash. Sept.3 1856; Kansas Slave Code 4 pp.; Who Are the Disunionists ?; 4th of July Toasts in South Carolina: The White Man Shall Be a Slave If a Laborer: Slaves, Horses and other Cattle, a Sale by J.B. Sproull & Co. 1855; and The Buchanan Democracy Hate Freedom. Overall approximately 40 newspaper clippings pasted in, with some marginal writings and notations in ink in the handwriting of the original owner, who although unnamed, appears to have resided in Greene Co., OH and was most definitely a Republican ! Very Good, bound in sewn brown leather, 78 blank pp. with contemporary newspaper articles pasted onto most of the blank pages; the Republican Party Platform, 36 pp.; Declaration and Constitution, 32 PP.
