        The Grammar of Ornament.

      London: Day and Son, Lithographers to the Queen, 1856. - JONES, Owen (1809-1874). The Grammar of Ornament. London: Day and Son, Lithographers to the Queen, 1856. Folio (22 x 14 4/8 inches). Title-page printed in red and black. Additional chromolithographed title-page and 100 plates (some occasional light spotting). Contemporary maroon half morocco, green cloth, front cover with large maroon morocco lettering-piece, elaborately decorated in gilt on the front cover (extremities worn). Provenance: with the perforated library stamp of Spokane Public Library on the letterpress title-page and plate 37, and their bookplate on the front paste-down, their sale, Christie's, New York, 12th October 2000, lot 101 First edition, of what proved to be Jones's most enduring and influential work, "partly because it was adopted as a set text for the schools of design which had been established in the 1830s as part of a governmental move to raise the standard of design of manufactured goods. In the late 1840s and early 1850s they were subject to a large-scale reorganization which included the setting up of a Museum of Ornamental Manufactures, for both student and public use. Owen Jones was one of those appointed to select objects for the museum from the displays at the Great Exhibition. However, as a teaching aid the museum was seen to have two disadvantages: it would encourage students to copy the examples rather than to comprehend the principles of good design, and it was not accessible to students at the provincial schools. The Grammar of Ornament overcame both of these obstacles, and its precepts became the doctrine of the schools. It was reissued twice and continued in use in art schools well into the twentieth century. "Jones was to become one of the most influential, prolific, and well-known designers of mid-nineteenth-century Britain. A man of his time, he made a major contribution to the development of design theory and education at a point when design was considered to reach beyond the aesthetic sphere and into the realms of economics and morals. And his spectacular architectural schemes and designs for consumer goods catered to the needs and desires of a growing and increasingly affluent and leisured middle class. The last-named set out, in a list of thirty-seven propositions, his principles of good design and colouring. These were illustrated and expanded in twenty chapters, each of which presented examples of fine ornament from a particular geographical area or historical period. The last chapter, ‘Leaves and flowers from nature’, emphasizes the importance of nature and natural growth in design" (Lesley Hoskins for DNB). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

SUIVI DES APPLICATIONS DE CET ART AUX SCIENCES, ET DE RECHERCHES SUR L'ACTION CHIMIQUE DE LA LUMIÈRE

      Paris: A. Gaudin et Frère, 1856. Second edition. 8vo., 400 pp., plus 4 engraved folding plates and one heliogravure plate, which is detailed with a full tonal range, [3] adverts. Later binding of quarter calf gilt, and marbled paper over boards. The blank lower margin of the title page bears a partially erased ink inscription. There is a small worm hole in the blank margin of the half-title page and title page, with a short tear to the blank margin of the following leaf which was repaired with archival tape, as is a hole in pp. 59 - 60, with the loss of a word or two; pp. 60 -61 has splatter staining. There are a few spots of soiling or mild dampstains to a few leaves. The blank lower margin of the heliogravure plate has a two inch dampstain. In all, this remains a very good copy. Contains a thorough presentation of the history of photography, photomechanical reproduction, the action of light on coatings, producing sensitized coatings, optics and theory, negatives, papers, Woodburytype and photo-enameling. The heliogravure, The Hotel de Cluny, is by Charles Negre and is one of the first, if not the first to appear in a book. This is the expanded edition, with a new title, of Monckhoven's, TRAITÉ POPULAIRE DE PHOTOGRAPHIE SUR COLLODION...first published in 1855 when Monckhoven was barely 20 years old. Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, fails to list any work by Monckhoven prior to his No. 132, TRAITÉ POPULAIRE DE PHOTOGRAPHIE SUR COLLODION...1862. WorldCat locates only nineteen copies and includes this note: "Livre VI, Gravure Heliographique, covers the processes of Fiseau [Fizeau], Beuvière, Talbot, Niépce, Niépce de Saint-Victor & Lemaître. St. Victor's Memoire's of 23 May, 1853, 2 October, 1854, and 12 March, 1855, are published complete.

[Also includes] four engravings of photographic equipment, etc. The plate was made before November, 1854."--Hanson Collection catalog, p. 17-18. Roosens and Salu No. 4239.

        A TREATISE ON HELIOCHROMY; OR, THE PRODUCTION OF PICTURES, BY MEANS OF LIGHT, IN NATURAL COLORS.; EMBRACING A FULL, PLAIN, AND UNRESERVED DESCRIPTION OF THE PROCESS KNOWN AS THE HILLOTYPE, INCLUDING THE AUTHOR'S NEWLY DISCOVERED COLLODIO-CHROME, OR NATURAL COLORS ON COLLODIONIZED GLASS. TOGETHER WITH VARIOUS PROCESSES FOR NATURAL COLORS, ON PAPER, VELVET, PARCHMENT, SILK, MUSLIN, PORCELAIN, WOOD, &C., AND ELABORATE ESSAYS ON THE THEORY OF LIGHT AND COLORS, THE CHEMISTRY OF HELIOCHROMY, AND THE ENTIRE RANGE OF THE AUTHOR'S NINE YEARS' EXPERIENCE IN SUN COLORING

      NY: Robinson & Caswell, 1856. First edition. 8vo., xii, 175 pp. Decoratively blind-stamped cloth, gilt title. Light wear at the spine ends and tips, occasional foxing; front hinge partially opened, else very good. In 1850, the Rev. Levi Hill announced his "discovery" of producing a daguerreotype in color, which he called a "Hillotype." Between the years of 1850 and 1856, when he published his treatise, there was considerable controversy as to whether he really had discovered a color process, or was simply a fraud. According to Eder, the "Hillotype" was nothing more than a daguerreotype with color painted upon it. John Towler, editor of Humphrey's Journal [previously the Daguerreian Journal] wrote in 1865, when Hill died, "he always affirmed to this writer that he did take pictures in their natural colors, but it was done by an accidental combination of chemicals which he could not, for the life of him, again produce!" Today, evidence seems to indicate that Hill did indeed produce daguerreotypes from life in natural colors. When first published in 1856, the price was $25.00, which resulted in poor sales and making this a scarce volume. Roosens and Salu No. 4770.

        Jérusalem. Étude et reproduction photographique des monuments de la ville sainte depuis l'époque judaïque jusqu'à nos jours. Planches.

      Gide et Baudry, Paris 1856 - Folio. (423x305 mm), complete set of 40 calotype mounted plates on strong paper, half-title, title, list of plates, some foxing & light water stains to margins of first 20 pages, not reaching the actual plates, contemporary half calf, rubbed with top spine damaged, title gilt on raised spine, with initials P. M. in silver. Auguste Salzmann was commissioned in 1854 by the Ministere de l’Instruction Publique, a scientific mission to the Holy Land in order in to confirm the historical hypothesis of de Saulcy about the history of certain sites in Jerusalem which ignited fierce polemics in France. Salzmann left France to the Holy Land in September 1853, visiting the Greek islands, Egypt, and Syria for "reproducing by photography all the monuments left by the Chevaliers de Saint Jean de Jerusalem. Hoping to verify religious faith through the objective documentation of the city's holy sites." In 1854 Blanquart-Evrard published the first edition of the book entitled: Jérusalem, époque Judaique, Romaine, Chrétienne, Arabe. Exploration Photographique par A. Salzmann. Two years later, a revised reduced edition appeared, entitled: Jerusalem, etude et reproduction photographique des monuments de la ville sainte depuis l’époque Judaique jusqu’a` nos jours, par Auguste Salzmann, chargé par le Ministere de l’Instruction publique d’une mission scientifique en Orient (Paris: Gide et J. Baudry). The second portfolio exists in two sizes, a deluxe edition of 174 photographs and a small edition with 40 reduced photographs + A volume of text, Etudes sur Jérusalem, accompanied by the plates. The cost was prohibitive at 1422 francs, which resulted in the project not achieving a commercial success. This book was dedicated to Salzmann’s friend the famous archaeologist L. F. J. Caignant de Saulcy who presumed that Salzmann’s calotype plates will validate his theories about Jerusalem as a fact. Bibliographic references: Tobler 181f, Röhricht 440f.

        Historical and other information, connected with the province of Oman, Muskat, Bahrein, and other places in the Persian Gulf. [Series title at head: Selections from the Records of the Bombay Government. No. XXIV - New Series].

      Bombay, printed for the Government at the Bombay Education Society's Press, 1856. - Large 8vo. XXVII, (1), 687 pp., including 6 lithographed folding maps and plans (a very large, partly hand-coloured area "Map of Maritime Arabia", 920 x 550, a "Sketch of Ras-ool Khymah", a "Sketch of the Island of Kenn", a "Plan of the Bassadore Roads", a "Trigonometrical Plan of the Harbour of Grane at Koweit", and a "Chart of the Gulf of Persia, by the late Captain G. B. Brucks", all flawless without any wrinkles or tears, the larger ones backed with cloth) and 1 printed folding table on p. 327f. ("Statement of the Number of Inhabitants, Vessels, Houses, and Date Trees of the Joasmee Ports in 1826, contrasted with the same in 1831"). Period-style half calf with double giltstamped black spine labels. All edges but top edge sprinkled in red. First edition, of the utmost rarity, especially when complete with all the inserted maps and plans. - A trove of historical and topographical information on the Arabian Gulf region in the mid-19th century, under the British protectorate. Focusing on the area of the modern-day United Arab Emirates (then the "Trucial States"), Qatar, Bahrein, and Oman, the volume constitutes "a collection of reports received by the Government of Bombay and was designed to serve as a reference book for officers working in the area [.] Anyone working on the 19th century history of Eastern Arabia and the Gulf comes across frequent references to it [.] It served as a basic source for Lorimer in his Gazetteer of the Persian Gulf, Oman and Central Arabia. It contains, however, a great deal more information that Lorimer omitted, presumably for reasons of space. The history of Abu Dhabi which Lorimer dealt with in just over 4 pages here receives 34" (Bidwell). Illustrated with numerous strategically important maps and plans, the book contains a wealth of detail on the slave trade (including verbatim editions of treaties), on pearl fishing in "Al Bidder" (now Doha), on the local tribes, sailing directions for the coasts of the Sheikdoms, etc. - The period covered was key to the historical development to the region. From the early 19th century, the Wahhabist Qawasim’s operations on what the British referred to as the "Pirate Coast" had much hindered the use of the overland "Desert Mail" to communicate vital despatches to and from Britain’s burgeoning empire. General Keir's controversial punitive expedition to the Gulf in 1819 was a military success, resulting in the capture of Ras al-Khaimah and the other key Qawasim strongholds, and the ensuing General Treaty of Peace bound local sheikhs to abjure "plunder and piracy". "However, the British realised that the future security of the Gulf would depend less upon a piece of paper than upon the vigour with which they enforced it. A permanent presence would have to be maintained and to act as policemen both topographical and background knowledge have always been required: the papers printed in this volume were designed to provide this for the men on the spot and for their masters in Bombay" (Bidwell). Containing information of the greatest political and strategic relevance, the publication was intended for highly limited and selective distribution, as remarked by Bidwell: "Although the print run is not known, it must have been very small or much of it must have been lost. In the 17 years that I have been responsible for the library of the Middle East Centre at Cambridge, I have never known a copy offered for sale despite an assiduous watch on antiquarian booksellers and their catalogues". Since then, a single complete specimen is known to have appeared at auction (the Burrell copy, in 1999); another exemplar, formerly in the library of the British Agency at Muscat, was sold through us in 2014. - A single black ownership stamp (unidentified monogram) on the reverse of the title page. A superbly preserved copy of this highly elusive, foundational text for the study of the Gulf in the modern era, flawlessly bound in the style of the mid-19th century. OCLC 34036809.

      John Murray 1856. . 1st Ed. Thick 8vo. 32pp. publ. list. Port. frontis., 2 plates, folding map (repaired to verso at hinge). Marginal browning, minor creasing, rebound in modern calf backed marbled boards, gilt lettered title label to spine. Joseph Philippe Ferrier (1811-1886), of the Regiment de Chasseurs d'Afrique, subsequently Adjutant-General of the Persian Army. ‘... he determined to undertake a perilous overland journey through Persia and Afghanistan to join the French officers in the Sikh service, at Lahore in the Panjab. After the Anglo-Afghan war of 1832-42 (q.v.), conditions in Afghanistan were much disturbed. Having reached Herat with many difficulties (8 June 1845), Ferrier was suspected by Yar Mohammad to be an English spy. After a long and perilous itinerary in Afghanistan (difficult to retrace), where he fell the prey between rival local rulers, he would return to Herat (15 November 1846) and reach Tehran (13 January). During his voyage, and particularly at the end, he sent reports on the British in Central Asia to Henry Rawlinson at Baghdad and to Justin Sheil at Tehran. He brought to Sheil a manuscript from Alexander Burnes (q.v.). He also reported to Sartiges on the political situation in Afghanistan. Although his notes had been stolen, Ferrier could draw from his memories a vivid and rich travel account. It was published much later, first in English [the above] ...' Encylopaedia Iranica. US$715

        GRAPHIC SCENES OF THE JAPAN EXPEDITION.

      New York: G.P. Putnam & Company, 1856. - Twelve leaves of letterpress text. Ten lithographic prints: one tinted portrait of Perry from a daguerreotype by P. Haas; nine handcolored views by Heine (two of them chromolithographed, seven printed in two colors on india paper mounted); all printed by Sarony & Co. Folio. Text in the original yellow pictorial wrappers, expertly rebacked to style with purple cloth. The plates loose as issued. The text within a half purple morocco and period purple cloth portfolio, yellow pastedowns and flaps, cloth ties. All within a black morocco backed box. An important work recording Commodore Perry's expedition to Japan, here in the very rare deluxe, handcolored issue on card. William Heine was the official artist on Commodore Matthew C. Perry's expedition to Japan in 1853-54. On returning to the United States he produced several series of prints commemorating the trip. A group of six elephant folio prints appeared in 1855, and the following year the present volume was issued, in a smaller format, with different images and with explanatory text. Both projects employed the New York lithographic firm of Sarony, probably the best lithographers in the United States at that time. "As artistic productions, the pictures speak for themselves.none superior to them have been executed in the United States, and they have no cause to shun comparison with some of the best productions of Europe" - Introduction. Copies were produced tinted (although with some plates with several colors) on regular paper and a very rare deluxe handcolored issue on card, as in the present example. The plates are numbered and titled as follows: 1) [Portrait of Perry] 2) "Macao from Penha Hill" 3) "Whampoa Pagoda" 4) "Old China Street, Canton" 5) "Kung-kwa at On-na, Lew-Chew" 6) "Mia or road side chapel at Yokuhama [sic]" 7) "Temple of Ben-teng in the harbor of Simoda" 8) "Street and bridge at Simoda" 9) "Temple of the Ha-tshu Man-ya-tshu-ro at Simoda" 10) "Grave yard at Simoda Dio Zenge" Bennett describes the plates as "many times finer than those in the regular account of the Perry expedition." His remarks on the work's great rarity are confirmed by its absence from both of Cordier's Japanese bibliographies. Two distinct issues of Heine's work were published: a regular issue with handcolored plates on thick card; and the deluxe issue, like the present, with more elaborate hand- coloring and on thick cards with glossy paper backings. The deluxe issue is considerably rarer than the regular issue. BENNETT, p.53. McGRATH 123.

        Large deaf education broadside titled, "Single and Double Hand Alphabet"

      New York: C. Alvord Printer, 1856. Unbound. Very good. The broadside measures approximately 22" x 17"; the image is about "20 x 16". The print features wood-engraved portraits of the Abbe de L`Epee and Laura Bridgeman along with images of hands forming letters in both single-hand and double-hand alphabet systems, as well as an illustration of the "new Institution for the Deaf and the Dumb." The accompanying text advocates for the use of the Single Hand Alphabet. The broadside is in nice shape with some edge wear, storage folds, minor dampstains, and a few short splits and pinholes along those folds. The "new" Institution for the Deaf and the Dumb was located at Washington Heights on "the east side of the Hudson River, about nine miles from the City Hall, N.Y." First established in 1818, it was the second school for the deaf to open in the United States, preceded only by Thomas Gallaudet's and Laurent Clerc's American School for the Deaf at Hartford. The Abbe de L 'Epee was one of the founders of deaf education. Although often erroneously credited with inventing sign language, in actuality he was taught to sign by the poverty-stricken deaf community of Paris. He, however, then recorded, categorized, and standardized a sign language so that he and others could use it in education programs throughout France. It was this sign language system that Clerc brought to the United States that became the foundation of American Sign Language including the ASL Alphabet. Laura Bridgeman, who was left deaf and blind after surviving Scarlet Fever at the age of two, was the first American deaf-blind child to gain a significant education. She was enrolled by her father at the Perkins Institute for the Blind, where, under the direction of Dr. Samuel Gridley Howe, she learned to read and communicate using braille and the Abbe de L 'Epee's manual alphabet. Although initially treated by Howe as a daughter, he later shunned her after marrying Julia Ward, who, as related by her daughters, had a strong "physical distaste for the abnormal and defective" and a "natural shrinking from the blind and other defectives." Helen Keller's mother learned about Bridgeman's success which was described in Charles Dicken's American Notes. This led to her hiring of Anne Sullivan, a teacher and former pupil at Perkins. When Sullivan arrived at the Keller household, the gift doll she brought for Helen was wearing clothes made by Laura Bridgeman. As of 2018, one other is currently for sale in the trade. ABPC and the Rare Book Hub report only one sold at auction, and OCLC shows only seven examples held by institutions.
