        Mitla. A Narrative of Incidents and Personal Adventures on a Journey in Mexico, Guatemala, and Salvador in the years 1853 to 1855 with Observations on the Modes of Life in those Countries

      Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts, London 1858 - Octavo, pp [xvi], 436, publisher's list; with 5 chromolithographs (one double-page) and 11 wood engravings, out of text, and a folding map showing his route, hand-colored in outline. Von Tempsky (1828 - 68) was of Prussian descent, but left Prussia at the age of 18 he came to the Mosquito Coast (coastal region of present-day Nicaragua) -- then controlled by the British -- to lead a life of adventure. He mined in the California gold-fields, unsuccessfully, and returned to Nicaragua to resume his life there. It is his long trip back through Mexico and Guatemala that he wrote about in his book Mitla (Zapotec ruins outside Oaxaca, Mexico), which is full of his adventures, great sense of elan and good eye for detail. (In the preface he apologizes for daring to write in the English language rather than German, but his English is quite up to the task.) He later went to Australia and New Zealand to mine gold and, it seems, to have more adventures. He was a skilled amateur artist, and it is his own water-color sketches that are the basis for the fine chromolithographs and other illustrations: the coloring is spectacular. Binding is the original crimson blind-stamped publsher's cloth, somewhat faded and stained. Text, map and images are unusually clean. Very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Paris: Gide, Editeur. 1858. First. First edition. Four volumes. Quarto. Contemporary quarter morocco and cloth. Joints of a couple of volumes a little stressed but holding, spine ends a bit worn, and slight foxing to the plates, mostly confined to the margins, a very good set. Born into a wealthy family of textile merchants, Gailhabaud (1810-1888) devoted his life to the study of architecture, art, and archeology, and spent eight years compiling this beautifully illustrated encyclopedia. He attempted to make his works both authoritative and accessible to laymen, but his enthusiasm got the better of him and by the 1860s he had lost much of his fortune attempting to publish a monumental history of art. He was compelled to sell his personal library to the City of Paris for a large sum and a lifetime curatorial position, but the library was destroyed in a 1871 fire. Although his legacy suffered considerably from this reversal in fortune, his works on medieval churches and cathedrals are still in print to this day. .

        Scenes from Clerical Life

      Edinburgh and London - Wiliam Blackwood and Sons, 1858 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Two handsome volumes fully rebound in leather, blackover blue. A very smartFirst Edition copy of Eliot's hard-to-find first bookFirst Edition in book form of George Eliots first published work, three stories that had previously been serialized in Blackwoods Magazine. Mary Ann Evans (22 November 1819 22 December 1880), better known by her pen name George Eliot, was an English novelist. She was one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. Her novels, largely set in provincial England, are well known for their realism and psychological perspicacity. In 1858 Amos Barton, the first of the Scenes of Clerical Life, was published in Blackwood's Magazine and, along with the other Scenes, was well received. Scenes of Clerical Life was widely believed to have been written by a country parson or perhaps the wife of a parson. Her first complete novel, published in 1859, was Adam Bede and was an instant success, but it prompted an intense interest in who this new author might be. Speculation increased as to authorshipmarkedly, and there was even a pretender, one Joseph Liggins. In the end, the real George Eliot stepped forward: Marian Evans Lewes admitted she was the author. Throughout her career, Eliot wrote with a politically astute pen. From Adam Bede to The Mill on the Floss and Silas Marner, Eliot presented the cases of social outsiders and small-town persecution. No author since Jane Austen had been as socially conscious and as sharp in pointing out the hypocrisy of the country squires. Condition: The bindings aretight and firm with the boards and all internal pages securely attached. The extremities arevirtually unmarked. The internal pages aregenerally bright and clean with some faintbrown spots throughoutand the occasional handling mark. The overallcondition of these volumesis very good..

        STATIONERS' ALMANACK 1858. FOLKESTONE. ENGRAVED BY T.A. PRIOR AFTER A DRAWING BY G.H. ANDREWS.

      Published by J. and W. Robins, Tooley Street, Southwark. 1858 - Steel engraving. 10 x 18 inches to plate mark. A fine example, mounted in conservation board. An exciting view of the town and harbour with an S.E.R. steam packet leaving for Boulogne in a gale - the parish church looks down over the detailed picture of the inner harbour. This first issue of the plate, published as the Stationers' Company Almanack in 1858 as evidenced by the engraved title, is the most difficult to find as it was the illustration at the top of a calendar for that year and was usually discarded at year's end. Reissued without a title in 1883 in a cumulative volume, using all the plates of the Almanack's previous fifty years. Issued again in the early 20th century with the addition of the title Folkestone and Mail Steam Packet in 1850. **We have examples of all these issues in stock. PRINTS/MAPS FOLKESTONE PRINTS/MAPS

        THE COURTSHIP OF MILES STANDISH AND OTHER POEMS

      Ticknor and Fields, Boston 1858 - This is the first edition of THE COURTSHIP OF MILES STANDISH AND OTHER POEMS by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, published in 1858 by Ticknor and Fields, Boston, MA. The ads in the back of the book are dated October 1858 validating this as a first edition. The copy we are offering for sale today is in very good condition. THE COURTSHIP OF MILES STANDISH AND OTHER POEMS contains not only the title poem but also contains Birds of Passage, another famous poem by Longfellow. It has been reported that THE COURTSHIP OF MILES STANDISH sold 10,000 copies in one day in Britain. In 1884, Longfellow became the first non-British writer for whom a commemorative sculpted bust was placed in Poet's Corner of Westminster Abbey in London; he remains the only American poet represented with a bust. The original brown cloth blind-stamped boards on this book are in good condition with the worst wear at the extremities of the spine. The front and back panels are blind-stamped with a pretty decorative design and are still in very good shape. The spine and hinge are holding nicely. The pages within are also in good condition, with hardly any issues. There is a small tear on page 114 and the front pastedown and first free endpaper have the white remains of something that was, at one time, pasted on the first free endpaper and then removed. The name 'Mary Osgood' appears on the very top of the flyleaf in blue pen. Otherwise the pages are free of writing or other marks and have retained their crispness. This copy would make a great addition to any Longfellow fan’s collection. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        An Historical Sketch of Slavery, From the Earliest Periods

      1858. Background for Cobb&#39;s Law of Negro Slavery Cobb, Thomas R.R. An Historical Sketch of Slavery, From the Earliest Periods. Philadelphia: T. & J.W. Johnson & Co., 1858. [iv], xxiii-cccii pp. Octavo (6" x 9-1/4"). Original cloth, blind frames and corner fleurons to boards, gilt titles to spine. Rubbing to extremities with moderate wear, section of backstrip lacking along upper half of front joint. Residue from bookplates (or tipped in leaves) to pastedowns, later owner stamp to front endleaf, shelf label to foot of spine. Early markings and underlining in light pencil in a few places, interior otherwise clean. A solid copy. * Only edition. Complete in itself, this book was also published as the preface and the two chapters of Cobb&#39;s Inquiry Into the Law of Negro Slavery in the United States of America (1858). The same plates were used for both publications; this is why the book is numbered with Roman numerals. This important book was the most comprehensive antebellum statement on the law of slavery and the only treatise on the subject by a southerner. (Cobb was a Georgian.)

        Friendly Hints to the Young Naval Lieutenant?

      Longman, Brown, Green, Longman, & Roberts, London 1858 - Small octavo, 124 pp., all edges gilt; a very attractive copy in plum morocco embossed in blind, lettered in gilt to front board and with royal arms to rear board, spine banded and gilt. First edition in a lovely presentation binding. Liardet was a professional naval officer who served against America in the War of 1812. He had an active and heroic career during which he was nearly blinded, forcing his retirement in 1841. Appointed to Greenwich Hospital, Liardet went on to write three practical naval books, works which concentrated on the technical aspects of sailing and are something of a vade mecum for junior officers. Liardet's informal account of shipboard life presents a wonderful glimpse into Royal Navy vessels at mid-century. Perhaps a testament to its usefulness and readability, this is a scarce work; Worldcat shows only four libraries holding copies. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Sammlung von 32 Theaterzetteln.

      Königsberg, 1857-1858. - 32 Bll. Ca. 340:420 mm. Gefaltet. Bemerkenswerte Sammlung von Wandanschlägen des Königsberger Stadttheaters, einem der renommiertesten Theater in Preußen und im Deutschen Reich. Die an Höhen wie Tiefen reiche Geschichte des geschichtsträchtigen, im März 1808 erstmals eröffneten Hauses - das schon kurz danach abbrannte und nach seiner Wiederherstellung im Dezember 1809 neueröffnet wurde - zeitigte eine ganze Reihe an bedeutenden Erstaufführungen, darunter Schillers "Wilhelm Tell" (1810) und "Die Jungfrau von Orléans" (1811), die ebenso wie Goethes "Iphigenie auf Tauris" und der "Götz von Berlichingen" (beide 1815) unter der Direktion von August von Kotzebue zur Aufführung gelangten; 1819 wurden Beethovens "Fidelio" und Webers "Freischütz" gegeben, 1830 Kleists "Zerbrochener Krug" und 1832 "Faust" (I). Richard Wagner war 1836/37 in Königsberg als Kapellmeister engagiert und ehelichte dort auch seine erste Gattin, die am Stadttheater engagierte Schauspielerin Minna Planer; 1879 wurde mit Emil Paur am Pult die deutsche Erstaufführung von Bizets "Carmen" gegeben und trat von dort ihren weltweiten Siegeszug an; 1927 fand schließlich die Erstaufführung Strauss' "Rosenkavalier" statt. Mit den schweren Luftangriffen auf Königsberg Ende August 1944, bei denen das Stadttheater bis auf seine Grundmauern niederbrannte, endet die Geschichte des renommierten Hauses. - Unter den hier vorliegenden Theaterzetteln finden sich u. a. die Ankündigungen zu Friedrich von Flotows Oper "Martha", Eduard von Bauernfelds Lustspiel "Die Bekenntnisse", Ferdinand Raimunds Zaubermärchen "Der Verschwender", Albert Emil Brachvogels "Der Sohn des Wucherers", Carl August Görners Zauberposse "Prinz Honigschnabel", Carl Maria von Webers Oper "Abu Hassan" oder Heinrich Laubes Tragödie "Graf Essex". - Einige Doubletten; beiliegend zwei Ansichtskarten und eine Verschlußmarke des Stadttheaters sowie ein Plan von Königsberg aus Meyers Lexikon.

        NOTES ON THE SURGERY OF THE WAR IN THE CRIMEA

      1858 - MACLEOD, George H. B. NOTES ON THE SURGERY OF THE WAR IN THE CRIMEA, WITH REMNARKS ON THE TREATMENT OF GUNSHOT WOUNDS. London: John Churchill, 1858. First edition. Frontispiece map. xii,439 pp. (i.e. 455 pp. because a duplicate of signature 2D is bound-in immediately after the first 2D). Octavo. Publisher's brown cloth, gilt-stamped title to spine, yellow coated endpapers. Backstrip is detached but present, with shallow loss at crown. Some spotting to lower board. Bookblock is overopened at either end and near the center, where one signature is sprung. Text leaves are clean. Ink ownership of George Hinckley Lyman on ffep.: "Geo. H. Lyman | Brigade Surgeon | Porter's Division | Army of the Potomac | 1861," and some neat pencil bracketing of text. After the war, Lyman served as president of the Massachusetts Medical Society and was a founder of the American Gynecological Society. (Steiner, Physician-Generals in the Civil War, pp. 12 & 142). Despite the apparent wear to this volume, its component pieces are surprisingly clean and fresh looking. During the Crimean War, Macleod was a surgeon in the Civil Hospital at Smyrna and the General Hospital established at Sebastopol. In this book he discusses the geography of and climatology of the Crimea, military hygiene in the field, the use of chloroform as an anesthetic, and the various wounds and injuries common on the battlefied, especially gunshot wounds. (Heirs of Hippocrates 1933, Waller 6120). This book was used by Union and Confederate surgeons during the course of the American Civil War and was issued by both a Union and a Confederate publisher in 1862. Quite Scarce in this first edition [there have been none at auction in the last 25 years].
