YARRELL, William
London: John Van Voorst, Paternoster Row, 1856. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I can provide a link to many more photos. Just ask! 1856 Ornithology British BIRDS Aviary Illustrated 3v SET 500 Woodcut Engravings William Yarrell's 'A History of British Birds' was first published as a whole in three volumes in 1843, having been serialized, three sheets every two months, over the previous six years. It is not a history of ornithology but a natural history, a handbook or field guide systematically describing every species of bird known to occur in Britain. Yarrell had been much impressed with Bewick's format a generation earlier and determined to illustrate his own work with engravings of suitable quality. The splendid woodcuts were engraved by the Thompsons (father and sons) from drawings by Alexander Fussell. Fussell came from a celebrated family of artists; John Thompson, a former pupil of Branston, was one of the most distinguished wood-engravers of the period. Interestingly this division of labour was not absolute, for several of the illustrations are signed 'Thompson del et sc.' which seems to indicate that occasionally Thompson was responsible for both parts of the process.

Colton, J[oseph] H[utchins]
New York: J.H. Colton and Company, 1856. 16mo, 137pp. Joseph Hutchins Colton (1800-1893) founded the mapmaking company known as "J.H. Colton and Company", known internationally and highly regarded for the quality of their maps, which were printed using engraved steel plates and often hand-coloured, recognizable for their decorative borders. This volume is the 1856 printing of the guide book for what was then "the west", today what we would consider the middle of the country - Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin, and the "territories" of Minesota (sic), Nebraska, and Kansas. A lovely copy in near fine condition, the map also near fine (see details below).___DESCRIPTION: Bound in brown cloth with gilt lettering and lavishly decorated front board with gilt vignettes of a train on a high bridge and a steamship, all surrounded by an elaborate ruled border intertwined with vines, rear board blind stamped with the same decorations and lettering, spine blank, verso of title page lists copyright date as 1855, Davies & Roberts as Stereotypers (NY) and Pudney & Russell as Printers (NY); sixteenmo size (approximately 6" tall), pagination: [ii] blank, [1-2] title and copyright page, [3]-4 the "Publisher's Advertisement" (in reality an introduction to the book), 5-100, 1-36 publisher's ads, [2] blank, hand-coloured folding map tipped to rear paste down.___CONDITION: Volume is in near fine condition overall, the binding is clean and unrubbed, the corners only gently bumped with minimal rubbing, the text block is strong and square with solid hinges, free of prior o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bartlett, W. H. and Woodward, B. B.
New York and London: George Virtue & Co., ca. 1856. Three volumes (complete), octavo size. Three volumes, covering the following (per Woodwards' preface): "The first volume narrates the discovery and colonization of the country, and the earlier and more momentous disputes respecting the possession of it...The second volume contains the history of the Administration of Washington, John Adams, and Jefferson, and of the Home Affairs of Madison's Administration...And the third volume traces the progress and fortunes of the Great Republic of the West, from "the Second War [i.e., the War of 1812], down to our own times. . .". Woodward goes on to make it clear that he is not writing from the perspective of any one political party, which was at the time often done as in 1856 national debate was heated over the impending secession of the Southern states and the ensuing Civil War. Each volume is replete with steel engravings by various artists, forming a beautifully illustrated account of the history of the United States. ___DESCRIPTION: Our set has all three frontispiece plates. All plates called for are present, including the folding map of North America, which is in near fine condition with no tears and only one unintended crease. In addition in Volume I there are three plates present not called for as follows: (i) facing page 54, The Narrows, Lake George; (ii) facing page 343, John Hancock; and (iii) facing page 454, Trenton Falls. With the three extra plates, there is a total of 90 plates plus the folding map. Binding is red leather, both front and back boards are elaborately to … [Click Below for Full Description]

(CRIMEAN WAR.)
London: John W. Parker and Son, 1856. London: John W. Parker and Son,, 1856. Octavo. Original embossed red pebbled cloth, title in gilt on front board, manuscript title label on spine, red sprinkled edges, yellow endpapers, with the errata leaf, and 8 pp. of publisher's advertisements at end. Contemporary ink ownership inscription of General Sir William John Codrington to half-title. Slight wear to extremities, somewhat a little darkened; a very good copy indeed. First and only edition, covering the tenures of Field-Marshal Lord Raglan, General Sir James Simpson, and General Sir William John Codrington whose copy this is. Raglan had died in June 1855, following the infamous Charge of the Light Brigade in October 1854 and the strong criticism it brought him. He was swiftly replaced by Simpson who, after a short while, "determined to resign a command which he had accepted with hesitation and for which he felt ill-equipped. On 10 November 1855 he handed it over to Sir William Codrington" (ODNB). Codrington (1804-1884) succeeded to General Sir James Simpson as Commander-in-Chief on November 11th 1855, as stated on p. 187, "still only a substantive major-general but promoted local general on 29 October 1855. Shortly after taking command, Codrington ruled that all war correspondents thought likely to aid the enemy by publishing sensitive military information should leave the Crimea. An armistice at the end of February effectively ended the fighting, and on 24 March Codrington invited Russian officers to a celebratory race meeting near the Chernaya River" (ODNB). He commanded … [Click Below for Full Description]

Il est composé de 158 poèmes rassemblés en six livres. La plupart de ces poèmes ont été écrits entre 1841 et 1855, mais les poèmes les plus anciens de ce recueil datent de 1830. Les Contemplations est un recueil du souvenir, de lamour, de la joie mais aussi de la mort, du deuil et même d'une certaine foi mystique. Le souvenir, surtout, y prend une place prépondérante, puisque Hugo y expérimente le genre de l'autobiographie versifiée. Ce recueil est également un hommage à sa fille Léopoldine Hugo, morte noyée dans la Seine. Le livre s'organise en deux parties, respectivement intitulées Autrefois et Aujourd'hui, comprenant chacune trois livres. Autrefois (1830 - 1843) I.

Wilhelm Heine was the official artist on the Perry expedition that opened Japan to the West. He was responsible for many of the lithographs in the official account of the expedition (Washington, 1856). Renowned as those illustrations are, they pale in comparison to this tremendous portfolio of hand-colored views."The plates are very beautiful scenes and places of special interest, many times finer than the plates in the three volume regular account of the Perry expedition" (Bennett). The superb plates are: a fine portrait of Perry, Macao from Penha Hill, Pagoda of Whampoa, Old China Street in Canton, Kung-twa at On-na, Lew Chew, Mia or Road-side Chapel at Yoku-hama, Temple at Ben-teng in the Harbor of Simoda, Street and Bridge at Simoda, Temple of Ha-tshu-man-ya Tschu-ro, at Smoda, and Grave Yard at the Simoda, Dio Zenge.This is the deluxe-hand-colored issue on thick cards.

Isabella Bird - The Englishwoman in America - 1856 U.K. first edition published by Chapman and Hall. The book is reasonably firmly bound in the publisher's brown cloth, lettered and decorated in gilt and blind, the corners and spine ends are bumped, there are minor tears to the cloth, the spine is slightly faded and there are some marks. The text block is slightly toned and foxed with staining to some pages, cracking at points and signs of ancient label removal to the front and rear pastedowns, possibly indicating a former circulating library existence, also 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 fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. It was based upon her 1854 visit to America, written at the age of 25 and published anonymously. For a first effort at producing travel writing of sufficient quality for publication it is an impressive work, as testified to by the fact that it is still attracting readers today, who fill the internet with their largely complimentary reviews. 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.

London, Paris, & Leipzig: Hippolyte Balliere, J.B. Balliere, & T.O. Wiegel; Arthur Hall, Virtue & Co., 1843-1856. First Edition. Complete run of the publication in 13 volumes. Various cloth bindings: vols. 7 & 11 are original, the others are in 20th century institutional cloth. A Fair+ ex-library set deaccessioned from the John Wilson Special Collection with typical markings such as call numbers written on spines, bookplates on paste downs, etc. Handwritten table of contents inserted in the first three volumes; the other volumes have printed TOC pasted to prelims. The two volumes in original cloth have chips and wear; spine of Vol. 11 has clear tape on it, missing lower third, and its front hinge has a crude tape repair. Front board of Vol. 7 detached but present. Front hinge of Vol. X has tape repair. Contents generally sound despite a few split hinges, associated wrinkling from pasted-in TOC, and a few marginal notes, generally bright. Several diagrams, illustrations, and one fold-out chart. Scarce in the trade as complete set. A journal of psychology and science as they were understood in the mid-19th century, focusing on mesmerism (today known as hypnotism) and phrenology, the divination of human psychology from skull shapes. Ironically, given that most of theories herein would today be considered pseudoscience, The Zoist's guiding philosophy was materialist first and foremost-- the journal defining itself from competitors by being rooted in scientific, physical realities rather than metaphysics.

Outstanding Archive Regarding the Exposition des Beaux-Arts, 1857: Furor over Rejected Artists Led to the Formation of the Salon des Refusés 6 Years Later!Archive of letters in French addressed to Philippe de Chennevieres (1820-1899), the Inspector/Director of the Expositions des Beaux-Arts, or Paris Salons, between 1852-1869. Consisting of 27 letters, dating mostly from the spring and summer of 1857 (with two outliers). On cream and blue stationery, with some examples of official letterhead, including the "Maison / de l'Empereur / Direction Générale / des / Musées Imperiaux / Salon de 1857"[Emperor's House / General Direction of the Imperial Museums, Salon of 1857]. Several docketed, a few bearing wax seals. Expected wear including minor paper folds, light toning, and edge chipping. Else near fine. Average size 5.25" x 8.25".The Exposition des Beaux-Arts of 1857 was a significant one within the long history of the Parisian salon. A number of artists' works were submitted and summarily rejected from the salon that year, prompting criticism that the juried art competition was undemocratic. This was an ironic complaint to lodge against an Emperor. Yet Napoleon III, in response to the public outrage, authorized the formation of a parallel exhibition called the Salon des Refusés [Salon of Rejects] in 1863. (Many Impressionists would soon find a sympathetic reception there.) A few rising stars whose work was displayed at the Exposition des Beaux-Arts of 1857 included Gustave Courbet (1819-1877), revolutionary Realist painter, and Frédér … [Click Below for Full Description]

MOORE, Thomas (1821-1887)
Bradbury & Evans, London, 1856. Colour nature-printed engraving. Very good condition. A beautiful nature-printed plate from Moore's "The Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland". Moore's important work on nature printing was one of the first of the genre printed in England. The beautifully executed plates were produced under the direction of Henry Bradbury, England's first nature printer, and are considered to be among the finest pieces of nature printing ever completed. The plates were produced ". by passing the plant, under pressure, between a plate of soft lead from which an electrotype could be made" (Blunt). As a result, they recorded the smallest details of flowers and the finest venations of leaves. Bradbury, whose father was of the publishing house Bradbury & Evans, studied at the Imperial Printing Office in Vienna. His interest in printing extended to ". the production of bank notes and the security of paper money, on which he discoursed at the Royal Institute" (DNB) and to the history of printing. He had many ideas for lavish and extensive works, including nature-printed books on fungi and trees and a work on the graphic arts of the nineteenth century, but none of these were ever realised. He died in 1860 at the age of twenty-nine. Cf. Nissen BBI 1400; cf. Stafleu and Cowan TL2 6275; cf. DeBelder 237; cf. Cave and Wakeman 25; cf. Fischer 89; cf. Hofer Bequest 74n.

Capuciner Confluentiae I. V. (stamp on title). ---- Ashworth, The face of the moon, Linda Hall 17; Poggendorf II, 820; DSB XII, p.192. - FIRST EDITION of this fundamental selenographic work by the German astronomer and geophysicist Schmidt (1825-1884). Of special interest are the two plates showing topological details at the lunar terminator. The first plate depicts the crater field around Tycho and the second the Caucasus mountain range, both with long shadow casts of sunset. These two chromolithographs are "among the most vivid of nineteenth-century lunar illustrations" (Ashworth, 17). "Schmidt (1825-1884) reportedly became interested in the moon when, at the age of 14, he came across a copy of Schroter's Selenotopographical Fragments. Schmidt devoted the rest of his life to observing, measuring, and drawing the moon, amassing in the process an incredible amount of selenographic information. He began his career in Germany, spent some time in Moravia, and in 1858 became Director of the Athens Observatory in Greece. His observing was done with a variety of telescopes, most notably a 6-foot refractor by Plossl. Schmidt is best known for his moon map, but this e … [Click Below for Full Description]

1856. Booker T. Washington Seeks Funds For Student Tuition From Boston Resident BOOKER T. WASHINGTON (1856-1915) was a former slave who became a leading voice for ex-slaves and their descendants. Washington was an American educator, author, orator and advisor to U.S. presidents from 1890 to 1915. He was a key proponent of African-American businesses and one of the founders of the National Negro Business league. His base was the Tuskegee Institute, a historically black college in Tuskegee, AL. As lynchings in the South reached a peak in 1895, Washington gave a speech, known as the “Atlantic Compromise,” which brought him national fame by calling for progress through education and entrepreneurship. Washington mastered the nuances of political arena, which enabled him to manipulate the media, raise money, develop strategy, network and distribute funds, while punishing those who opposed his plans for uplifting blacks. Washington was the Principal of The Tuskegee Normal & Industrial Institute (full title of the Tuskegee Institute).
