         Ichnology Of New England A Report On The Sandstone Of The Connecticut Valley, Especially Its Fossil Footmarks

      Boston: Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Printed by William White, 1858. First Edition. Very good+ in blind embossed, dark green cloth covered boards with gilt text and a gilt emblem on the spine. A quarto of 12 3/8 by 9 3/8 inches with the cloth at the head of the spine lightly worn and with the cloth at the heel of the spine more heavily worn with some fraying and a 1/4" chip at the lower front corner of the spine. The cloth at the tips of the boards is worn through. The hinges and joints are tight and strong and there are no loose signatures. Except for the preliminaries, the textual portion of the contents (pages i through 199) are clean and largely free of foxing or tanning. The 3 fold-out tables show only occasional spots of foxing; the glossary and index only show foxing as a result of offsetting from the plate which follows; the hand-colored plate titled "The Moody Foot Mark in South Hadley" shows foxing in the margins and faintly on the upper half of the plate; the hand-colored fold-out map again shows foxing from offsetting from the adjoining plates; plates IV and V produced on heavier weigh paper show foxing in the margins; plates VI through XXXVII (which includes 21 fold-outs) are produced on light weight paper showing much less foxing which on most plates is nonexistent. The final 23 plates (XXXVIII through LX) are on heavier paper which again show light foxing primarily in the margins. The second free end page shows the following inscription: "Presented to Wm. Allen | by Edward Southworth, Jr. | Aug. 20th 1859." in a neat hand. 220 printed pages followed by the plates above enumerated. An attractive and certainly collectible copy of this seminal work describing in great detail the dinosaur tracks found, but also Hitchcock's summation of the "origin and nature of the sandstone" occurring in the Connecticut Valley. (Merrill: The First One Hundred Years of American Geology, p. 560)

         Firsthand Accounts of Battle of Canton

      China, 1858. Manuscript letters containing firsthand accounts of the First Battle of Taku Forts in May, and the Battle of Canton in December, with shocking details of brutality, penned by a participant in the latter, a marine serving in China on HMS Surprise, identified only as Thomas. 8vo. Two letters and one partial letter, 10 pages combined. Single and double leafs, blue tissue-like letter paper measuring approximately 13 x 21 cm. The recipient of this correspondence is Julia, the writer's wife and mother of his children, one of whom he refers to a "Little Thomas." HMS Surprise, a British gunboat, had on 4 May 1857 departed England for anti-slavery duties on the West Coast of Africa. Her commission was soon changed however, being redirected to serve on the Coast of China where the Second Opium War was intensifying and the British government was preparing to launch offensives against the Chinese. On 13 November she 1857 arrived in Hong Kong. Captain Samuel Gurney Cresswell, commanded the ship, which was to intended to be used as a despatch steamer. As revealed in the present correspondence, however, HMS Surprise and her crew saw much frontline action in the Second Opium War, participating in at least two pivotal engagements - the First Battle of Taku Forts and the Battle of Canton. A firsthand account of the Battle of Canton, 28-31 December 1857, is described by the mariner in the earliest letter of the lot, a partial letter which includes a mention of the death of Captain William Thornton Bate, Commander of HMS Actaeon who was killed while storming the walls of Canton. His vivid and contemporary recollection centers on men killed and injured on both sides, as well as the savagery of his Chinese assistant being decapitated, all in all a most tragic and unforgettable sight for any man. This correspondence would have been written in January 1858, after the 16th, or possibly early February. This correspondence is undated; what is present is one double leaf beginning at page 5. [British High Commissioner, Lord Elgin, was keen to take the city of Canton (Guangzhou) as a demonstration of power and to capture Chinese official Ye Mingchen. To this end, he ordered an Anglo-French force to begin an assault on 28 December. They rapidly gained control over the important harbor and city of Canton (Guangzhou). The capture being complete and the battle over on 31 December 1857, the Alliance delayed entry into the city itself until 5 January.] Excerpts from the letter: "[page 5] boats came to our assistance... no casualties in our Ship... the sight of Canton was something terrific we fired about five Hundred pounds at the Bombardment... moored Head and Stern off [Gough's?] Fort..." "... after the first three days we had to take the killed and wounded down to Hong Kong about 100 miles... Our ship leaked very much I had all my little notes destroyed..." "... we were moored by Captain Bates who was the first man killed after the first shot was fired on 28th December..." "... recovered: our gunner mate was almost blown to pieces. Our First Lieutenant was blown about 30 yards at a very large Fort which had been captured... we all ran to see what was the result... their was the gunner mate with all his clothes blown off him and very much burnt with powder, he is a little disfigured but all right now, also our First Lieutenant." "I am very sorry my old friend Pim was shot in four places and had six of his men killed, one of the men had his head cut off at a village, it was very soon knocked down, I believe Pim is doing very well, it was a frightful sight." "I thought of you all on Christmas day... on the 16th of January I drank [to] your jolly good health..." End Excerpts. Another rare firsthand account, the letter of 23 May 1858 describes the First Battle of Taku Forts which took place three days earlier, the writer being a participant in this too. Owing to the Allied success of the earlier Battle of Canton, and the capture of the Forts, the writer anticipates an imminent conclusion to all wars in China, however, the Second Opium War would continue until October 1860. HMS Surprise would remain in China for five months after this battle, performing duties at Shanghai, Ningpo, again at Gulf of Pechelee, and then Hong Kong. Excerpts from the letter: "H.M.S. Surprise. Pe Chili Bay, May 23rd." [The ship had arrived at the Gulf of Pechelee 5 May 1858.] "I have just returned from the Forts... away this last three days from the Ship and thank God... we have captured the forts... " "...we were under a very heavy fire all day yesterday... I marched with the Naval Brigade about 15 miles yesterday... I think now all the war in China is over, we are to go to Ningbo at once." "On our arrival at Ningbo I will give you a full account of the battle but I expect you will see something in the paper..." [HMS Surprise arrived at Ningpo on 22 Jun 1858.] End Excerpts. [The First Battle of Taku Forts, the first invasion of the Anglo-French alliance of the fortifications, took place on 20 May 1958. Also called the Dagu Forts, or Peiho Forts, they are forts located by the Hai River (Peiho River) estuary, in Tanggu District, Tianjin. In 1851, Chinese Imperial Commissioner and General Sengge Rinchen had carried out a comprehensive renovation of the forts, building 6 large structures. Each fort had three large guns and 20 small caliber guns. Forts were constructed of wood and brick with an external curtain of two feet of concrete designed to minimize penetration by artillery rounds. The forts were around 10 to 15 metres (33 to 49 ft) high. Nonetheless, the forts were successfully captured by the collaborative attack by the British and French under the command of Admiral Sir Michael Seymour.] One final and swift but gallant battle - the letter of September 1858 recounts the capture of a Chinese pirate junk off the coast of Hong Kong. Immediately after this event, HMS Surprise, much to the content of the writer, to be sure, departed Canton for Africa. Excerpts from the letter: "H.M.S. Surprise. Hong Kong, Sept. 11th /58." "... we have been running all over China..." "I must tell you of our gallant affair with the Pirates... arrived at Hong Kong... ordered out about 10 miles when we fell in with 25 sails Piratical Junks, we closed them and when about four Hundred yards they opened fire on us three hundred and twenty seven guns, struck us in several places, we opened fire at once and after a sharp engagement of one hour and half we succeeded in our capture... the Admiral and every person has given credit our ship every credit." "... we are now going to the Cape of Good Hope and I think by the time we get there we shall be ordered home." "I am as busy as a man can be drawing stores..." "... I have seen quite enough now but thank God I am [alive?] ... we may possibly meet the mail on our way down and then I must give you all the particulars..." End Excerpts. HMS Surprise (1856), a Vigilant-class gunvessel of the Royal Navy, was commanded by Commander Samuel Gurney Cresswell from 11 March 1857. The ship served in the East Indies, participated in the Second Anglo-Chinese War, and from 1861 she formed part of the Mediterranean Fleet.

         Odes et ballades

      Hachette 1858 - - Hachette , Paris 1858, 11x18cm, relié. - Nouvelle édition comportant un préambule original. Reliure en demi chagrin marron, dos à quatre nerfs sertis de filets noirs ornés de caissons noirs agrémentés en leurs centres de fleurons dorés, discrètes restaurations sur les mors, plats de cartonnage marron, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, reliure de l'époque. Ex-libris manuscrit à la plume en regard de la page de faux-titre. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Victor Hugo à Jules Janin. Les rapports entre Jules Janin - l'un des critiques littéraires les plus influents de l'époque notamment au Journal des Débats - et Victor Hugo furent, à leurs débuts, conflictuels. Pendant longtemps il n'eut de cesse dans ses critiques littéraires d'esquinter Victor Hugo, notamment en 1827, le « prince des critiques » se moqua du Dernier jour d'un condamné et en publia une parodie intitulée L'Âne mort ou la femme guillotinée. A la sortie de Marion Delorme, il alla même jusqu'à estimer que le dramaturge « n'entend[ait] rien à l'expression des passions ». Cependant, au tournant des années 1850, lors de l'exil d'Hugo, Janin se montra solidaire du proscrit et les deux sommités littéraires débutèrent l'échange d'une correspondance. L'envoi sur cet exemplaire de la nouvelle édition d'Odes et ballades est un témoignage de la réconciliation entre ces deux célébrités des lettres françaises. Bel exemplaire, en reliure du temps, enrichi d'un rare envoi autographe de Victor Hugo à l'un des ténors de la critique littéraire. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] New edition with an original preamble. Binding half brown shagreen, back with four nerves set with black nets adorned with black boxes decorated in their centers of golden florets, discrete restorations on the joints, brown cardboard plates, guards and contreplats of handmade paper, Contemporary binding. Handwritten ex-libris with pen next to the fake title page. Precious autograph signed by Victor Hugo Jules Janin. The relationship between Jules Janin - one of the most influential literary critics of the time, particularly in the Journal des Débats - and Victor Hugo were, in their early days, conflictual. For a long time he never ceased to criticize Victor Hugo in his literary criticism, particularly in 1827, when the "prince of critics" made fun of the Last Day of a Condemned Man and published a parody entitled The Dead Ass or Woman guillotined . At the exit of Marion Delorme , he even went so far as to say that the playwright "does not understand the expression of passions". However, at the turn of the 1850s, during the exile of Hugo, Janin showed solidarity with the outlaw and the two literary leaders began the exchange of correspondence. The autograph dedication of the author on this copy of the new edition of Odes and ballads is a testimony of the reconciliation between these two celebrities of French letters. A fine copy of the book, enriched by a rare autograph dedication by Victor Hugo to one of the tenors of literary criticism. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         SPEECH OF HON. ABRAHAM LINCOLN, DELIVERED IN SPRINGFIELD, SATURDAY EVENING, JULY 17, 1858. [caption title]

      [Springfield, Il, 1858. 8pp. printed in double columns. Single folded sheet, dbd. Minor foxing, small chip to bottom edge throughout, costing just a few words each page. Good. The only separate printing of this address given by Lincoln at Springfield, Illinois. Lincoln's speech, which preceded his debates with Douglas, puts forth the great themes that marked his political philosophy during the last ten years of his life. Urging that slavery be placed on course for "ultimate extinction," he repeats his "House Divided" warning, first given at the State Republican Convention a month earlier. He insists that the Kansas-Nebraska bill was "the beginning of a conspiracy" to nationalize slavery. Attacking Douglas, and defending himself against the charge that he would "invite a war of sections," he stands on "the principles of our Declaration of Independence." Though blacks are not the equal of whites "in all respects," the Declaration "does mean to declare that all men are equal in some respects; they are equal in the right to 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.'" Most significantly, "In the right to put into his mouth the bread that his own hands have earned, he is the equal of every other man, white or black." A rare printing of Lincoln's monumental July 1858 Springfield speech. MONAGHAN 12. BYRD 2960.

         The Council propose to celebrate the Entrance upon the New Building by a Dinner of the Members and Friends of the Institute, to be held in the Music Hall, after the Annual Meeting on the 10th of January [1859], at which Lord Ward will preside .?

      1858 1858 - 4pp 4to, printed in sloping script on first two pages only; several light folds. Paper watermarked Joynson 1858. v.g. A formal invitation to a celebratory dinner, to mark the inauguration of the Birmingham & Midland Institute?s new purpose-built building. The invitation lists the five Officers of the Institute, which include Lord Ward as president and Arthur Ryland as vice-president, and beneath these names two Honorary Members: The Right Honorable Lord Brougham, and Charles Dickens Esquire. Charles was invited to become one of the first Honorary Members of the Institute in late September 1857, a position he accepted with ?honor and pleasure?, declaring himself ?highly gratified? (Pilgrim Letters, vol. VIII, p458.) Also listed are invited noblemen and gentlemen, amongst these Lord John Russell, Lord Stanley, Sir Charles Eastlake and William Makepeace Thackeray. In addition, the council ?have thought it desirable on this occasion to depart from the ordinary custom of restricting the party to gentlemen, and that the members of the Institute should have the privilege of introducing ladies to the dinner? The Institute had been founded four years earlier, for ?the Diffusion and Advancement of Science, Literature and Art amongst all Classes of Persons resident in Birmingham and the Midland Counties? Dickens himself became the Institute?s 16th president in 1869. It is not evident to whom this particular invitation was sent. Dickens makes no mention of the dinner in his letters, and appears not to have attended.

         INDIA (NORTHERN) / PAKISTAN / BANGLADESH: VICARIATI E PREFETTURE APOSTOLICHE NELL’ INDOSTAN. And INDIA (SOUTHERN) / SRI LANKA

      Rome: Tipografia della Reverenda Camera Apolostica, . 1858 - 2 Copper engraved maps with original full hand colour, on fine wove paper watermarked ‘Pietro Miliani Fabriano’ (Both maps: Excellent Condition, clean and crisp with stellar original colour), each 56.5 x 77 cm (22 x 30.5 inches). Extremely Rare – a pair of large-format maps respectively depicting Northern and Southern India, featuring the ecclesiastical divisions of the Roman Catholic on the subcontinent, prepared for the Vatican’s State Secretariat by Girolamo Petri, issued within his monumental atlas, ‘L’Orbe Cattolico ossia Atlante Geografico Storico Ecclesiastico’. - This pair of extremely rare, excellent maps respectively showcases both Northern and Southern India, and details the ecclesiastical divisions of the Roman Catholic Church on the subcontinent. The large-format, finely engraved and beautifully coloured works were prepared by Girolamo Petri, a lawyer who served as a senior official within the Vatican’s State Secretariat, the arm of the Holy See responsible for managing its relationships with foreign powers. The map appeared within Petri’s monumental atlas of the Church’s worldwide ecclesiastical divisions, L’Orbe Cattolico ossia Atlante Geografico Storico Ecclesiastico Opera del Commendatore Girolamo Petri Officiale minutante della segreteria di Stato (Rome, 3 vols., 1858-9). Petri was commissioned by the Pope Pius XI (reigned 1846-78), the longest ever reigning pontiff, to create this magnificent atlas during at time when the Church was under siege within Europe, but, conversely, while it had major ambitions for expansion overseas, particularity in Asia and Africa. The uncommonly beautiful atlas was published in only a very small number of examples for the exclusive use of Cardinals and high-ranking administrators, accounting for the great rarity of its maps today.

Frontispiece engraving of the college signed: "Thos. Chubbuck, Engr. Springfield, Ms." and "Published by J.S. & C. Adams" Statistics leaf signed in print on verso "Samuel Bowles and Company, printers." 4to. 9 1/2 x 12 inches. Decorated leather binding (worn at extremities). "Andrew Josiah Clapp" in gilt on front cover [his album]. "Portraits | Amherst | 1858" in gilt on spine. Two library stamps ("Southampton Public Library") crossed out with no other markings. Photographs are salt prints, oval format, approximately 4 ¾ x 6 inches. Tonality varies, with scattered fading and foxing. Boards. Leaf titled "Statistics" has a list of each student, residence, and when they entered and left college (and if graduated). It also notes that there are 84 total, 67 who entered at the beginning of the Course, 1 who died, and 51 who graduated. The Statistics page is dated Amherst College, August 12th, 1858 and printed by Samuel Bowles and Company.Portraits one through nine are identified faculty members. The next portrait appears to be a faculty member, but we haven't been able to identify him. The second faculty portrait, and probably best known of the sitters, is Edward Hitchcock, with "best wishes from your friend Edward Hitchcock" in manuscript on opposite page.Portraits number eleven through sixty-two are identified students from Amherst (with the exception of the 21st member who we haven't been able to identify). There are a few additional signatures without portraits included in the rear.Owner Andrew Josiah Clapp was a Congregational minister, was born in Massachusetts in 1833. He graduated from Amherst College in 1858, and from Andover Theological Seminary in 1861; was ordained February 19, 1862, and was at Shutesbury, Massachusetts, from 1862 until his death, September 13, 1863. See Trien. Cat. of Andover Theol. Sem. 1870, page 218.In our experience, salt print era photograph albums are much scarcer than the albumen era albums. Often the graduates had to pay for the portraits they wanted in the album, and hence different albums have different contents. With the printed title page and "statistics" leaf in this album, we aren't sure if this is the case or not. It is however, a rare album, with only one copy in OCLC/Worldcat as of this writing, at the American Antiquarian Society (theirs with 63 portraits). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         SPEECH OF HON. ABRAHAM LINCOLN, DELIVERED IN SPRINGFIELD, SATURDAY EVENING, JULY 17, 1858. [caption title]

      [Springfield, Il, 1858. 8pp. printed in double columns. Single folded sheet, dbd. Minor foxing, small chip to bottom edge throughout, costing just a few words each page. Good. The only separate printing of this address given by Lincoln at Springfield, Illinois. Lincoln's speech, which preceded his debates with Douglas, puts forth the great themes that marked his political philosophy during the last ten years of his life. Urging that slavery be placed on course for "ultimate extinction," he repeats his "House Divided" warning, first given at the State Republican Convention a month earlier. He insists that the Kansas-Nebraska bill was "the beginning of a conspiracy" to nationalize slavery. Attacking Douglas, and defending himself against the charge that he would "invite a war of sections," he stands on "the principles of our Declaration of Independence." Though blacks are not the equal of whites "in all respects," the Declaration "does mean to declare that all men are equal in some respects; they are equal in the right to 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.'" Most significantly, "In the right to put into his mouth the bread that his own hands have earned, he is the equal of every other man, white or black." A rare printing of Lincoln's monumental July 1858 Springfield speech. MONAGHAN 12. BYRD 2960.

They then followed a southerly course to Lake Gairdner, passing it on the west side. After a strenuous march, they arrived at Ceduna ... By now the men had run out of provisions. They travelled along the coast to Streaky Bay and from there to the settled districts at Mount Arden in a state of semi-starvation' (Feeken, Feeken and Spate).
