[Gray, Horace; Lowell, John]
Boston: Crosby, Nichols, and Co., 1857. First separate edition. Stitched paper wrappers. A very good+ copy, wrappers mildly worn, mainly along the spine. 8vo. Eleven years earlier, Dred Scott sued for his freedom in one of the most famous of all Supreme Court cases, one he lost and which ultimately led to the Civil War. "One of the earliest and best argued legalistic attacks on Chief Justice Taney's opinion in Dred Scott. It first appeared as an article in the June 1857 issue of the Law Reporter, which at that time was edited by Lowell.... Both authors were bright young men in the legal profession. Lowell ultimately became a federal district judge and Gray would spend twenty-one years as an associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Although Gray and Lowell are quite mild in their criticism of Taney, the pamphlet is an excellent example of how conservative Northern lawyers were appalled by the partisan and unjudicial [sic] nature of Taney's opinion. They suggest that his opinion ?is unworthy of the reputation of that great magistrate (p.9). In dissecting Taney's opinion, they present several arguments: (1) They argue that Negroes could be citizens of the U.S. This is primarily a historical argument taken mostly from Justice Curtis? dissent. (2) If Taney is correct in his assertion that the Supreme Court has no jurisdiction in the case, because a black man cannot sue in federal court, then he also has no right to examine the merits of the case. (3) Congress has the right to regulate the territories. (4) The Somerset rule is good law in the United States and thus any slave … [Click Below for Full Description]

WEBB, Frank J
London: G. Routledge & Co.. 1857. First. First edition. Dark blue publisher's cloth. vi, [2], 392pp. (Also issued simultaneously in a yellowback edition, with a different pagination). Introductory preface by Mrs. Harriet B. Stowe. Modest wear to the bottom of the spine, corners a little bumped, paper over rear hinge just a bit started, a handsome, very good plus copy. Housed in a custom clamshell case. The Garies and Their Friends is the second novel by an African-American, after William Wells Brown's Clotel; or, The President's Daughter, and the first to chronicle the experience of free blacks in the pre-Civil War northeast. Scholars also consider it the first American novel to deal with race relations and colorphobia in the urban north. A family consisting of a white southern man, his mulatto wife (who is a freed slave), and their children migrate from Georgia to the North. According to Maxwell Whiteman (A Century of Fiction by American Negros 1853-1952), it "takes place in Philadelphia prior to the Civil War and concerns itself with race prejudice, violence and miscegenation." Apparently the race riot scenes were particularly impressive to contemporary readers. Although this novel has become required or suggested reading in many African-American literature courses, the first edition has become an exceptional rarity. One of only two copies we've ever seen, and the only one in original cloth. No copies of the first cloth and yellowback editions have been at auction for at least the past 25 years. OCLC locates eight copies of this edition. BAL 19392. .

Vicars, Hedley (Captain).
English officer killed in Crimea, Sound Reading Copy - Owned & written-in by a Confederate soldier at Camp Jackson (hospital) in 1865 - Scans and more information sent on request -. Carter, NY 1857 - This book was written-in by a wounded Confederate soldier at Camp Jackson Hospital (Missouri) in 1865. Notations on page 217 & 218. On page 217 he describes a fellow Confederate soldier who was shot & killed in a manner similar to one mentioned in the book. A fellow correspondant of mine notified me that James K.P. McKinney of Company K, 26th Virginia was killed in action on Sept.1, 1864 at Petersburg, which matches the hand-written description of his fellow soldier in the book. This was the name of the man mentioned noted in pencil in the book by the Confederate prisoner. The Confederate soldier also wrote some verse at the back of the book and in the front opposite the Table of Contents. There might be other notations I have missed. The gift inscription, dated 1865, at the front of the book was undoubtedly written by a different soldier or Union soldier guard at the prison. Jim Rooney. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Kolenati, Friedrich Anton, Botaniker, Zoologe, Geologe und Forschungsreisender (1802-1864).
Brünn, 7. XII, 1857. 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief). An Herrn Senoner, Bibliothekar an der k. k. Geologischen Reichsanstalt in Wien: "Sie würden mich in meinen gegenwaertigen Arbeiten sehr unterstützen, wenn Sie von einigen Ihrer Bekannten in Italien Fledermaeuse verschreiben ließen. Sie sollen selbe in eine Schweins- oder Rindsblase, welche trocken ist und deren Hals so weit abgeschnitten wird, dass man sie hineinstecken kann geben; ist die Blase voll, wo von Zeit zu Zeit einige Tropfen Aether auf selbe gegeben wird, um sie zu betäuben, so wird der Blasenhalstheil etwas mit Wasser benetzt, noch etwas mehr Tropfen Aether hineingegossen und ein oder einige Esslöffel Branntwein, die Blase am Halse gut und fest zugebunden und so in einer Schachtel pr. Post versendet. Ich trage gerne alle Unkosten. Besonders würde ich gerne den Dynops Cestonii, der in den Haeusern und unterirdischen Gemaechern des mittleren und südlichen Italien vorkömmt, besitzen [...]". - F. A. Kolenati war 1842 als Assistent der Zoologie an die Akademie nach St. Petersburg gegangen, "wurde mit einer mehrjährigen Forschungsreise ins südliche Rußland und in den Kaukasus beauftragt und kehrte mit umfangreichen Sammlungen nach St. Petersburg zurück. Anschließend wieder als praktischer Arzt in Prag tätig, wandte er sich dann ganz den Naturwissenschaften zu, gründete 1848 den naturhistorischen Verein Lotus in Prag und habilitierte sich im selben Jahr für medizinisch-pharmazeutische Botanik, Zoologie und Kristallographie.

Stewart (William Clouston). (1832-1872).
The Flyfisher's Classic Library. Machynlleth, Wales. (1857) 2009 new edition. Ppxl,viii,301+1ad. Frontispiece portrait, 5 colour plates of flies. This de luxe edition is fully hand-bound in Morocco, with raised bands on the spine and a handsome velvet-lined slipcase. Each book contains three actual flies in a mount inside the front cover. One of 30 de luxe copies including 3 flies tied by Peter Kealey. A very handsome volume. "The Practical Angler or The Art of Trout-Fishing more particularly applied to clear water", first published in 1857, revolutionised tactics and rapidly became an influential classic. His upstream sunk-fly technique, using lightly dressed "spiders", is described here, just one year before the birth of G.E.M. Skues, who applied the same idea to chalkstream fishing 50 years later. We have commissioned expert fly-tier and photographer Terry Griffiths to re-tie Stewart's fly patterns in the style used by Stewart, and to provide superb new colour plates of those flies. Also included in this new edition is the riposte, entitled "A Caution to Anglers or The Practical Angler and The Modern Practical Angler Compared", to the publication of the similarly named book by Harry Cholmondeley- Pennell, to which Stewart took particular offence - especially as Pennell's work contradicted his own. A new introductory essay by Richard Hunter precedes this section. This de luxe edition is fully hand-bound in Morocco, with raised bands on the spine and a handsome velvet-lined slipcase. Each book contains three flies in a mount inside the front cover. The flies have been tied … [Click Below for Full Description]

[PANAMA, Watermelon War]. - Amos B. CORWINE, and others
Panama, New Granada: Printed for Private Circulation ... Printed at the Office of the Star and Herald, 1857. Quarto. (11 1/4 x 7 1/2 inches). Extra-illustrated with a loosely-inserted 4pp. related autograph letter from Corwine. Original yellow thin paper wrappers, the upper cover with a faint but legible impression taken from the same setting of type used to print the title page, modern brown morocco-backed cloth box. A very rare pamphlet printed in Panama, the official American report on the 1856 Watermelon Massacre. Amos B. Corwine was appointed "United States Special Commissioner relative to the Massacre of American Citizens at the Panama Railroad Station" in the immediate aftermath of what was known as the Watermelon War, a riot in Panama City on April 15, 1857, in which 17 people died. The incident was sparked by a drunken American, named Jack Oliver, who refused to pay a Panamanian vendor for a slice of watermelon; the vendor pulled a knife, Oliver pulled a gun, a struggle involving a bystander ensued and violence against the Americans in port escalated. The official tally at the time reported 15 American dead, and 16 wounded. There were 2 Panamanians dead and 13 wounded. Underlying this incident were class and racial tensions between local citizens and Americans, with roots to the latter displacing the local population from employment in the building of a transcontinental railroad. This very rare, privately- printed pamphlet starts with a 21pp. publication of Corwine's official report dated July 18, 1856. Corwine's first four conclusions all relate directly t … [Click Below for Full Description]

BROOKE, After Edward Adveno (1821-1910)
London: Published by T. McLean, 1857. Colour-printed lithograph, heightened with touches of gum arabic. Very good condition apart from some light foxing. Top of sheet trimmed practically to image. A stunning view of the rose garden at Nuneham Park, from the "The Gardens of England."Published in 1857, The Gardens of England is a series of 24 plates with accompanying text depicting the diverse luxuriant gardens of various distinguished English mansions. The mid-nineteenth century was a period during which the traditional aesthetics of garden design underwent a significant change in England, as innovative ideas and concepts were being continually introduced and explored. Brooke's publication embodies the eclectic nature of Victorian garden design and constitutes an important visual survey of the varied styles that were popular among the wealthy and fashionable.Situated near Oxford, Nuneham Park was the chief residence of the First Earl Harcourt, nobleman, Privy Councillor, and courtier of George III. The lavish Palladian Villa was built in 1756, and the expansive landscaped park, with its scenic vistas and classical gardens, was constructed in the 1760s according to the Earl's designs. The eminent English landscape designer Lancelot "Capability" Brown enhanced the grounds in his signature "serpentine" style, and William Mason designed its various flower gardens. Little is known about E. Adveno Brooke, other than that he exhibited at the Royal Academy and British Institution between 1853 and 1864 and his most significant publication was The Gardens of England.Cf.

A chronological summary of significant facts and occurrences in the history of the Company, from 1670 to 1853, in a series of brief statements, with appropriate dates in large black type in the adjacent margins, commencing with the Charter of King Charles the Second. The last three entries read: 1846-in 1846, Dr. Rae, the Company's Surgeon at Moose Factory, at the head of a party of twelve men, wintered in Repulse Bay; and in the next year surveyed almost 655 miles of land and coasts on the shore of Committee Bay.; 1848-1850-in 1848 Dr. Rae accompanied Sir John Richardson in his search for Franklin; and in 1850 led an Expedition by Great Bear Lake and the Coppermine River to the shores of the Arctic; 630 miles of coast on the southern shores of Victoria and Wollaston lands were surveyed, traced and accurately laid down. 1853-in 1853 Dr. Rae again wintered on Repulse Bay with a party of seven men, having, as before, no fuel for cooking; 1, 100 miles of land coast were explored in that season, and definite intelligence of the fate of Sir John Franklin and his party was obtained. Few labourers in the cause of science have done or suffered more than this gallant Officer of the Company. The expense of these Expeditions, and the assistance rendered to Sir John Ross in 1850, have cost the company very large sums of money.

THOMSON, J.
1857. Tome I (all published). Paris, Bailliere, 1857. 4to (318 x 240mm). pp. xvii, 66, (2), with a splendid handcoloured engraved frontispiece and 10 (9 handcoloured) engraved plates. Later half cloth, gilt lettered spine, marbled sides. Probably one of the nicest frontispieces in the history of entomological illustration. It is of remarkable artistic refinement, showing two beetles fighting in a landscape (Combats entre Manticores) amidst ornamental flowers and smaller beetles, high in the sky two cherubs holding a gilt coat-armour.

Wollaston, T. V.
London, The Trustees of the British Museum, 1857. 8vo (22.0 x 13.8cm). xvi, 234, 8 pp.; one lithographed plate. Publisher's blind-stamped cloth with gilt title on the spine. The first thorough work on the insects of Madeira, Porto Santo and some adjacent islets. The material was mostly collected by the author. As could be expected from rather isolated island-faunas most species described in this work are endemic. Thomas Vernon Wollaston (1822-1878) FLS published a series of eight island faunal studies, the others being on the insects of Madeira (published in 1854), the Coleoptera of Madeira in the British Museum (1857), those of the Cape Verde Islands (1867), on the beetles of the Canaries (1864), on the landshells of the Atlantic islands (1878), and on the variation of species, with especial reference to the Insecta (1858). The last mentioned paper in particular is an important contribution to evolution. However, Wollaston, concluded from his researches that species were created under a divine plan to best suit local circumstances. Published in the year previous to Darwin's On the origin of species, it was kindly received by Darwin. In turn, Wollaston, who could not shed his religious beliefs, published quite a negative review of Darwin's work. Thereafter sympathy between both men although working on much the same subject deteriorated slowly but steadily. The present work includes new species. The plate shows species of the genera Stereus, Autocera and Orthoperus. Former owner's inscription in the margin of the half-title, cancelled stamp on the title page, otherwise a ver … [Click Below for Full Description]

VUILLEMIN, A
Paris., 1857. A new illustrated map of Germany with the states the German Confederation is composed of, indicating the physical divisions and territories; the geographic distribution of cultivated plants. Industrial towns, commercial ports, railways, roads and canals. Steel engraving. Original outline colour with later additions. Very good condition; a slight tear in the bottom of centrefold, not affecting the image. Size: 84.5 x 59.5 cm. An interesting view of Germany from a commercial and industrial perspective. There is statistical information about various German regions and states comprising the German Confederation as well as a few Hanseatic cities on either side of the map with 22 attractive vignettes depicting industry native to each area. There are images from such regions as Prussia, Bavaria, Saxony, Mecklenburg, Lichtenstein, and regions of Oldenburg and Hanover. The actual map has got towns, ports, canals and railways as well as the borders of states and kingdoms comprising the Confederation, marked on it. Alexandre Vuillemin (1812-1880) was a cartographer and a book editor based in Paris. Despite a prolific cartographic career, much of Vuillemin's life is shrouded in mystery. What is known is that his studied under the prominent French Auguste Henri Dufour (1798-1865). Vuillemin's most important work is his detailed, highly decorative large format Atlas de G�ographie Commerciale et Industrielle, which this map is taken.

Elegantly bound in recent tan calf over marbled boards, twin red and black title labels with light gilt to spines; gilt rule to boards. Edges a little dusty, internally spotless. A superb copy . Charlotte Bronte's first completed novel, but published posthumously in 1857. The 'Professor' of the title escapes from a humiliating clerkship in a Yorkshire mill to find work as a teacher in Belgium, where he falls in love with an impoverished student-teacher, regarded as the author's most realistic feminist heroine. This novel endures today as both a harbinger of Bronte's later fiction and a compelling read in its own right. Smith [7], Symington p.40. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
