Baker, F.W. Photographer - INDIA
Calcutta [Kolkata], circa 1857-1860. Substantial lot of 30 rare albumen carte-de-visite photographs by F.W. Baker, renowned photographers and one of the earliest in India, illustrating the trades and costumes of various social classes in Bengal, during the first few years of British Crown rule in India. Photographs measure approximately 9 x 5,5 cm to 9 x 6cm, mounted onto cdv cardstock with photographer's monogram stamp to verso, mounts measuring approximately 10,5 x 6,2 cm. Verso text: "By Appointment. Photographed from life by Mr FW Baker, Calcutta." Some mounts are further stamped with photographer's name and/or advertisement statement to front. Contained in a black leather book-styled slipcase with gilt title 'Photographs' to spine, inner lining of floral-patterned paper and gilt floral paper to inner extremities. Slipcase measures approximately 11 x 7 x 3 cm. Very slight age-toning, otherwise in very good original condition, beautifully preserved, vivid images. Baker's work is exceedingly scare; to find a large lot as presented here is simply unseen in any condition. As foreign commerce was only just beginning in India, at the dawn of the British Raj, Baker immigrated to Calcutta and quickly established one of the very first photography studios in 1857. A brilliant artist and savvy entrepreneur, he immediately began photographing the locals in such a way to capture the unique and varied costume and the trades of all social classes in northern India. Selling to the European market, he was immensely successful. The present lot includes some of the earliest and scarcest o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hughes, Thomas
The First UK printing published by Macmillan and Co, Cambridge in 1857. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition, bound by Bayntun Riviere in full blue morocco, five raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with gilt titling and tooling. Hand made marbled paper end-papers and gilt to all edges of the text-block. The boards are slightly bowed and there is some light fading of the colouring to the spine. Free from inscriptions. Occasional light spotting to the text. This copy was from the library of the celebrated author Richard Adams (Watership Down) with his suitably lagomorphic bookplate to the front end paper. An excellent copy of the First edition of the author's classic novel celebrating the ethos of nineteenth-century English Public Schools. The book's popularity 'must be linked to its powerful structuring myth in which Rugby School is England, and the experience of the boy, learning self-reliance so that authority may be delegated to him, symbolises the experience of the man of the governing class. The novel's opening paragraphs constitute one of the great evocations of Englishness. Vivid scenes of the trouncing of bullies, and the glories of the cricket and football fields, enliven the narrative, which also has much emphasis on boxing, for Hughes believed passionately in the healthiness and manliness of a fair fight' (ODNB). A handsome association copy of a very scarce title rarely found as the first issue. Collectible.

Taft, William H. (1857-1930)
Taft, William H. (1857-1930) - Typed letter signed AS PRESIDENT "assist him in his fight (Harding)" - 27. President of the United States. Typed letter signed "Wm H Taft". 2pp., 6.75 x 8.75 inch, Beverly, Mass., 1910 August 7. On watermarked "The White House, Washington" letterhead. Signed at top of the second page. President Taft wrote this lengthy letter to his long-time friend and colleague Pastor John Wesley Hill (1863-1936). In the letter, President Taft discusses the fall-out of the recent 1910 midterm elections, and also endorses Warren G. Harding (1865-1923) as the Republican candidate for Governor of Ohio. In full: "I have your letter of August 4th, and thank you sincerely for writing. I could not tell you how cheery your letter is and how glad I am that you are in the fight. I expect to see Harding, our candidate for Governor in Ohio, during the next week, and am delighted to know that you will assist him in his fight. I think, as you indicated in your previous letter, that he is likely to prove a very much more formidable candidate than has been supposed. I am not sitting up nights and mourning at what has happened in Kansas or Iowa. What is done has been done, and I am not making any apologies for it, and if the people do not like it, they can register their dissent; but my impression is that after two years things look a little differently from what they do in the light of the misrepresentations which have been the chief stock in trade of our insurgent muck-raking friends.

TORRENS, Robert.
London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, and Roberts, 1857. London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, and Roberts,, 1857. Octavo. Original embossed cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Some pencilled notes, bookplate of the Cameron Smail Library at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh to front pastedown over earlier bookplate, inked shelfmarks to title page verso. Spine unevenly sunned with shadow of old shelf label, extremities bumped, front hinge a little tender, short closed tear at head of front free endpaper, pages a little crudely opened at head in a few instances, latter half of the book unopened. A good copy. Second, enlarged edition, first published in 1848, of Torrens's defence of Peel's bank charter act, which restricted the powers of British banks and gave exclusive note-issuing powers to the central Bank of England. "It was banking that dominated Torrens's last twenty years. Peel's Bank of England Charter Act 1844 owed much to Torrens's 'currency scheme' and 'bank arrangement' of 1836 (for which he sought a £10,000 gratuity from the Bank of England), and to his currency controversy with Thomas Tooke, 1840–44. Torrens's classic defence of the act went through six manifestations (1847–58)" (ODNB). These later editions were occasioned by renewed interest following the temporary suspension of the act in 1857. This second edition is expanded with a new preliminary chapter on whether bank notes are equal to coinage in or instead to credit, an examination of a chapter of John Stuart Mill's, and an examination of the effect of Australian gold discoveries on their currency.

Ownership inscription of Michael Ward to first leaf of text (doctor on the 1953 Everest Expedition). This article describes the naming of Mount Everest, and is signed by the first man to climb the mountain. Waugh's notice, just 2pp. long and dated Dehra, March 1st, 1856, marks the beginning of the Everest story in Britain. In this brief article, Waugh informs fellows of the RGS that the Survey of India's peak XV "is higher than any other hitherto measured in India, and most probably it is the highest in the whole world." He continues: "I was taught by my respected chief and predecessor, Colonel Geo. Everest, to assign to every geographical object its true local or native appellation. I have always scrupulously adhered to this rule, as I have in fact to all other principles laid down by that eminent graduist. But here is a mountain ... without any local name that we can discover ... I have determined to name this noble peak of the Himalayas 'Mont Everest.'" There follows a second notice in which B. H. Hodgson suggests that Everest does have a local name - Devadhunga - which should be adopted. In the discussion following the re … [Click Below for Full Description]

4 pp. of a bifolium (110 x 140 mm.). Berlin, April 5, 1857. In black ink. In German (with translation). Bülow writes to Franz Brendel, editor of the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, regarding his recent successful piano recitals in Leipzig. He notes that his cousin Livia Frege had hosted a dinner for him and that he would "never forget the kind words that she spoke to me." The letter clearly shows Bülow's joy in his success, stating that he ". has longed for recognition once again. Otherwise, I think the past was just a dream." He asks Brendel to send him copies of the reviews, for his "unvarnished" opinion, and wishes that he would have stayed longer after the concert: "We would have liked to spend the evening with you. Instead we suffered among a terrible gang of philistines." Slightly worn and browned; creased at folds with small split to lower margin. After studying for years with Liszt in Weimar, Hans von Bülow embarked on a series of concert tours before turning to his better-known career as a conductor. In 1857, he performed two recitals at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig (March 31 and April 1) that included Liszt's arrangement of Schubert's Wandererfantasie and Beethoven's Diabelli Variations. The performances were an unqualified success, leading to a number of positive reviews and even pacifying his skeptical family. Brendel (1811-1868) formally reviewed Bülow's performance in his article "Hans von Bülow als Pianofortespieler" in the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, April 17, 1857. It is thought that Bülow may, in fact, have been the first to give a public performance of Beethoven … [Click Below for Full Description]

Large 8vo (255 x 183 mm.), orig. aubergine semi-stiff patterned wrappers, orig. block-printed title label on upper cover, new stitching. [Japan]: 1857.The very rare first edition in Japanese of an elaborate analysis of the muzzle-loading Minié rifle, an innovative French infantry weapon of the mid-19th century. The translator, Kosaburo Akamatsu (1831-67), was a rangaku scholar and an important military scientist. He translated several other Western military works. This is a translation of Booms's Verhandeling over het schot der draagbare vuurwapens (1st ed.: 1855). Booms (1822-97) was a Dutch general and military historian.After Commodore Perry's two expeditions, the Japanese stockpiled Western weapons and amassed books on military strategy and weapons in preparation for a hostile invasion. Akamatsu was introduced to Western firearms and tactics in Nagasaki at a Dutch-influenced military academy.Akamatsu directly translates Booms's preface, then recapitulates numerous trials of the rifle's accuracy. This is followed by comparisons of the Minié with rifles from other European nations. The Minié rifle was imported into Japan in large numbers, and it was one of the most prevalent firearms employed by Japanese soldiers.The four folding plates, which are quite large for Japanese books, present minutely detailed schematics and cross-sections of the Minié rifle.Fine and fresh copy.

David Livingstone
John Murray, 1857. ...Including a Sketch of Sixteen Year's Residence in the Interior of Africa, and a Journey from the Cape of Good Hope to Loanda on the West Coast; thence across The Continent, down The River Zambesi, th the Eastern Ocean.First edition. The book covers the first of Livingstone's three major expeditions "in which he followed the Zambezi, discovering Victoria Falls in the process, as well as the Shire and Ruyuma rivers, ranging from Angola in the west to Mozambique in the east... During these years he explored vast regions of central Africa, many of which had never been seen by white men before" (PMM). This copy conforms to Bradlow's Variant No. 3: frontispiece, plate 8 and 17 wood-cuts by Whymper, with an extra leaf after p. 8; the ads in this copy are dated November 1, 1857. Bradlow refrains from citing this as the "third issue", since the precise relationship of the variants is unknown - indeed, Bradlaw only retains Gaston Renard's order of issue "not because of a belief in its correctness but merely for convenience", and notes that "the only thing that can be said with certainty is that the issue with the extra leaf numbered 8" and 8+ is not the first issue". The extra leaf following p. 8 covers Livingstone's account of his married life and the upbringing of his children. As to why the extra leaf was inserted, Bradlow remains baffled: "Why did Livingstone decide to have the extra leaf after page 8 inserted? Did he feel that he had neglected his wife by not mentioning her in this way in the first place?Tipped in signature of the author to the dedication … [Click Below for Full Description]

Extremities a little bumped, slightly rubbed, occasional light foxing, a very good copy indeed. 3 hand-coloured plates including the frontispiece, 4 pp. publisher's advertisements at end. First edition of this first-hand account of the Crimean War. Money left England to take part in the war, joining the Bashi-Bazouks in July 1855. Bashi-bazouks, literally meaning "crazy-head", roughly "leaderless" or "disorderly," were a band of mercenary troops fighting as irregulars with the Ottoman army. Edward Money was a retired officer from India, and "one of those who hurried to join the Crimean conflict," (Woods) and as per the recruitment rules stating that "officers who volunteered for bashi-bazouk service were to receive one rank higher than they had enjoyed in the service of the Queen or the East India Company" (ibid.), he was named to a captaincy. A review of this work appeared in The Spectator of December 1856 and judged that "the narrative is not without interest for its pictures of Oriental life under a rather novel aspect, and its information as to the character and internal economy of the corps, especially under General Beatson".

BÜLOW, Hans von 1830-1894
1857. After studying for years with Liszt in Weimar, Hans von Bülow embarked on a series of concert tours before turning to his better-known career as a conductor. In 1857, he performed two recitals at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig (March 31 and April 1) that included Liszt's arrangement of Schubert's Wandererfantasie and Beethoven's Diabelli Variations. The performances were an unqualified success, leading to a number of positive reviews and even pacifying his skeptical family.Brendel (1811-1868) formally reviewed Bülow's performance in his article "Hans von Bülow als Pianofortespieler" in the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, April 17, 1857. It is thought that Bülow may, in fact, have been the first to give a public performance of Beethoven's Diabelli Variations, on November 22, 1856, in Berlin. See Kinsky-Halm, p. 770. A candid letter from a young Bülow to one of the leading German writers on music. Unpublished.. 4 pp. of a bifolium (110 x 140 mm.). Berlin, April 5, 1857. In black ink. In German (with translation).Bülow writes to Franz Brendel, editor of the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, regarding his recent successful piano recitals in Leipzig.He notes that his cousin Livia Frege had hosted a dinner for him and that he would "never forget the kind words that she spoke to me." The letter clearly shows Bülow's joy in his success, stating that he "... has longed for recognition once again. Otherwise, I think the past was just a dream." He asks Brendel to send him copies of the reviews, for his "unvarnished" opinion, and wishes that he w … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition, Bradlow's variant 7: the frontispiece and plates facing pages 66 and 225 are wood-engravings by Whymper; the extra leaf after page 8 is absent. Gaston Renard called this variant the third issue, but as many as 11 variants of the first edition are known and a reliable order of precedence has never been established: it is now accepted that "the only thing that can be said with certainty is that the issue with the extra leaf numbered 8* and 8+ is not the first issue" (Bradlow). The extra leaf contains information on Moffat's mission at Kuruman and on Livingstone's marriage and the upbringing of his children, and Bradlow could only speculate as to … [Click Below for Full Description]

VUILLEMIN (Alexandre).
Paris, Fatout, 1857. En 32 sections montées sur toile et pliées, formant une carte de 0,85 x 1,12 m ; sous étui de papier marbré vert ave titre "Planisphère" en lettres dorées au dos. Très belle et rare mappemonde dressée sur la projection de Mercator, ornée de nombreuses vignettes : scènes de pêche, chasse à l'ours blanc de Sibérie, marche d'une caravane à travers le désert, chasse à l'autruche ou pêche de la baleine et des phoques en Antarctique. La bordure inférieure de la carte est décorée de personnages en costumes des différentes races qui peuplent la Terre, ainsi que de la hauteur des principales montagnes du monde et les longueurs, sources et embouchures des principaux fleuves. Un peu partout sont indiqués l'époque des grandes découvertes et le nom des navigateurs, les colonies des diverses nations, ainsi que le parcours des bateaux à vapeur, l'époque des départs et la durée des trajets : de Londres à Sydney trajet direct en 150 jours, du Havre à La Havane trajet direct en 30 ou 35 jours, etc. En Amérique du Nord figurent les noms de tribus indiennes : Osages, Sioux, Indiens Têtes Plattes, Athabascas ou Chipeouays. C'est l'une des mappemondes les plus décoratives de cette époque. Il existe une même carte avec un titre identique mais dans un plus petit format. Malgré une oeuvre cartographique prolifique, la biographie d'Alexandre Vuillemin, géographe et cartographe français, reste mystérieuse. On sait juste qu'il fut l'élève de Auguste-Henri Dufour. Bel exemplaire, contours aquarellés à l'époque. Défauts d'usage à l'étui.

Flaubert, Gustave
Paris: Michel Levy Freres, 1857. First Edition. First edition, first trade issue with "Senart" for "Senard" on the dedication page. Two volumes, in contemporary half leather binding with a bit of restoration, bound without publisher's catalog at rear. Owner names at front of each volume, sporadic age spotting to pages. A charming copy of the author's debut novel, a breakthrough in the craft of literary narration that helped create the modern novel. Very Good.
