Patmore continues: "I have seen the M.S. and am sure that the work is one which will give you great pleasure. I know of no other poetry so intense and lofty as some of these pieces, which are as ingenious and intellectual as Donne, and far more passionate." Fine.

        California and its Resources. A Work for the Merchant, the Capitalist, and the Emigrant.

      London: Trubner and Co., 1858. - 8vo., (8 ¾ x 5 5/8 inches). Advertisement leaf. 2 folding lithographed maps (each with a repaired tear); tinted lithographed frontispiece; 13 black-and-white and 7 tinted lithographed illustrations in a total of 16 plates (some spotting). Original publisher's pebbled cloth, covers stamped in gilt and in blind, the spine titled in gilt (binding a bit shaken but holding). Provenance: Contemporary manuscript ownership inscription of John Hamilton to title page. First edition. A beautifully illustrated paean to California. "Scarce. One of the best books on the resources of California, with much historical material on the Vigilance Committee" (Howell). As the title suggests, the purpose of this book is to encourage people of all stripes to settle in California, from the European emigrant to the ambitious businessman, highlighting the opportunities presented by the discovery of gold in the region. "One of the best early surveys of the natural resources of California" (Currey and Kruska). The author seeks to give an overview of California's natural resources and its history, as well as the best routes to reach it. One map outlines the various routes to California from Europe, while the other portrays the whole territory, with an inset of the neighboring areas. The illustrations "are of much Gold Rush significance" (Wheat), in particular the two views of Yosemite, which "were derived from sketches made by Thomas A. Ayres in 1855. These illustrations appear to be the first views of Yosemite Valley published in a book" (Currey and Kruska).

        Elementary History of the Progress of the Art of War

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1858. Octavo. Original red pebble-grained cloth, title and decorative panel gilt to the spine, blind panels to the boards. A little rubbed and soiled, head and tail of spine crumpled and slightly split, light browning, but overall very good, largely unopened. First edition. Uncommon. James John Graham, is a somewhat obscure figure. After passing out from Sandhurst in 1822 he served as judge-advocate in the West Indies, and briefly as an engineer. But between 1832 and 1835 he took civilian employment as secretary and treasurer to the South-Eastern Railway Company in England, and his only significant military service seems to have been as military secretary to Sir Robert Hussey Vivian, commander of the British "Turkish Contingent" in the Crimean War. His name is known to us today as the first translator of Clausewitz into English: his translation - with some revision - is still in print today. Interestingly he appears to make not a single reference to Clausewitz in the present work.

        CIRCULAR TO THE CITIZENS OF HARRIS COUNTY

      Houston: Printed at the Telegraph Book Office, 1858.. 7pp. Printed on a single folded sheet, unopened. Tanned, some foxing and soiling. Slight separation along one fold, with a bit of paper loss but not affecting text. Good. Rare defense of a public officeholder's honor in antebellum Houston, the only copy that we have been able to locate. Berry, the former Harris County Treasurer, addresses this rare circular "to the Tax Payers of Harris County," giving them an accounting of the receipts, expenditures, and debts of the county for the year ending August 1858. The purpose of the accounting, and of Berry's accompanying text, is to defend himself against the recent "grave charge of fraud, not openly, but insinuatingly and insidiously, alleged against me, by Judge Shearn, in his circular, issued upon the heel of the late election." Judge Charles Shearn (1794-1871) was a major figure in the political and mercantile life of Harris County. A veteran of the Texas Revolution, Shearn was a merchant, a Houston City Councilman, and Chief Justice of Harris County for six years. Berry gives his defense, concluding with thanks to the citizens of the county: "the only apology I have for taxing them with this refutation of a slander, is my desire to wipe out that 'stain,' and, if I have not succeeded in doing so, I have the satisfaction of knowing that the attorney-general of the state, and every chief justice and board of commissioners for Harris county from 1848 to 1856, have fallen into the same error with myself." No copies are located in OCLC, not in Winkler. Rare, possibly unique.

Ce dernier soutint que le pouvoir civil et juridique devrait diriger la cité et non lepouvoir religieu. Pietro Giannone exprime aussi dans son oeuvre le désir de s'affranchir du passé, s'inscrivanten droite ligne dans le mouvement laique et cultivé qui donna naissance à l'illuminisme. La publication de ''l'Istoria civile'' publiée pour la première fois à Naples en 1723vaudra à l'auteur d'être excommunié par l'Archevéque de la ville, l'obligeant à s'exiIer à Vienne, par la suite il retourna en Italie puis fut contraint de nouveau à s'exiler à Genève. enfin il fut invité à se rendre dans le Piémont, se croyant en sécurité, il y fut arrêté et emprisonné, c'est dans cet état qu'il décéda en 1748. Dans le septième chapitre de ''Histoire de la colonne infâme'', Alessandro Manzoni fait la liste des erreurs et plagiats commis par Giannoni, citant certains auteurs copiés tels que Giovan Battista Nani, Paolo sarpi. Le travail de l'historien napolitain fut loué par Edward Gibbon. Il est aussi l'auteur de: ''L'ape ingegnosa'', ''I discorsi storici sopra gli Annali di Tito Livio'', ''Apologia dei teologi scolastici''. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Leipzig, F.A. Brockhaus, 1858-1900. 3 volumes. 4to (275 x 210mm). pp. x, 246; vii, 232; vi, 192, with 300 (150 partly hand-coloured) copper engravings. Contemporary half calf, gilt lettered spines (some hinges repaired). One of the rarest works on orchids. Heinrich Gustav Reichenbach (1824-1889) became the foremost German orchidologist of the 19th century, his father being a well-known botanist. H.G. Reichenbach succeeded John Lindley as 'orchid king'. "Orchid specimens from all over the world were sent to him for identification, and these, together with his copious notes and drawings, forms an immense herbarium which rivaled that of Lindley at Kew" (Reinikka, 'A history of the orchid', p. 215). After Reichenbach's death the work was continued by Kraenzlin. The fine plates are after drawings by Reichenbach, Wendland, Giraud and Kraenzlin. The colouring of the coloured plates is confined to the flowers, as in all copies. //Nissen BBI, 1609; Stafleu & Cowan 8894.

        The Governayle of Helthe: with the Medecyne of Ye Stomacke. With Introductory Remarks and Notes by William Blades.

      London, Blades, East & Blades, 1858.Reprinted in 1858 from William Caxton's edition of 1490, and LIMITED TO 55 COPIES ONLY. 8vo, approximately 200 x 135 mm, 8 x 5¼ inches, frontispiece with tissue guard is a printed facsimile of the first page of Caxton's book, repeated within, the text consists of a complete reproduction of Caxton's print in gothic type and "an annotated reprint" in roman type, pages: viii, [1], 25, [1], [36], [40], followed by 8 pages of Glossary, plus the prospectus for his Treatise on the Typographical Works of William Caxton, bound in full publisher's black morocco, gilt border to covers, rebacked to match, no lettering or label, all edges red. Small neat repair to fore - edge of upper cover, edges of covers just slightly rubbed, tissue guard browned and with a small chip at fore - edge, new pastedowns, inner hinges and one inner joint at front strengthened with bookbinder's linen cloth, contents clean and bright, binding tight and firm. A very good copy. "An effort has been made, by the use of Types very similar to those employed by Caxton, to give this reprint something of the Appearance of the Original. To effect this still further, the Types were cast expressly in Pewter, which, from its Softness, yields an Impression resembling more the Productions of the early Printers than could be obtained from harder materials. Great care has been taken to make the Text an accurate Reproduction of the Original". (Preface). Fifteenth century books on health are very rare. This is a health maintenance manual focusing on how to keep men (not women) healthy, with occasional notes on ill - health. Both parts were published anonymously and The Governayle of Helthe has been variously attributed to John de Bordeaux and also to Bartholomaeus Montagnana, the younger, the Medecyne of Ye Stomacke has been attributed to John Lydgate. Caxton's edition was not reprinted until our edition of 1858 which is beautifully printed. William Blades the editor and publisher of our edition was deeply interested in Caxton and wrote the Life and Typography of William Caxton, England's First Printer, which was published in 1861 - 1863.

Original red embossed cloth, title gilt to front board, reddish-brown surface-paper endpapers, printed ads to the pastedowns. Folding map frontispiece with dispositions in colour, and one other folding map. A little rubbed and with a couple of nicks, but overall very good. First edition. "Gives a detailed account of three days of battle during which Cawnpore was defended, preventing the creation of an enemy outpost in General Havelock's rear. Author defends General Windham's actions. Includes dispatches" (Ladendorf). A long-serving artillery officer, first commissioned out of RMA, Woolwich, at the head of his class in 1836. He served in the Crimea " present with the headquarter staff at Alma, Balaklava, and Inkerman, and throughout the siege of Sevastopol, remaining in the Crimea until June 1856. He was mentioned in dispatches, and made brevet lieutenant-colonel on 12 December 1854 and CB on 5 July 1855. He received the Mejidiye (fourth class) and the Légion d'honneur (third class)" (ODNB). Following the outbreak of the Indian mutiny, Adye was sent to India as assistant adjutant-general of artillery. Arriving at Cawnpore he discovered that Sir Colin Campbell had already left to relieve Lucknow, with the Gwalior contingent advancing on Cawnpore. "He took part in the actions fought there by Major-General Charles Ash Windham … and afterwards wrote The Defence of Cawnpore . He was present at the battle of 6 December, in which the Gwalior contingent was routed by Sir Colin Campbell after his return from Lucknow. His administrative duties then compelled Adye to return to Calcutta, and he saw no more fighting during the mutiny". From early 1859 Adye commanded the Madras artillery; deputy adjutant-general of artillery in India from March 1863 until 1868; "and implemented the amalgamation of the three East India Company regiments of artillery with the Royal Artillery, which required patience and tact". Following his return to England in 1866 he was successively Director of Artillery and Stores, governor of the RMA, Surveyor-General of the Ordnance, and finally Governor of Gibraltar, also serving on Wolseley's staff in Egypt.
