About this book The Autocrat of the Breakfast-Table (1858) is a collection of essays originally published in The Atlantic Monthly in 1857 and 1858 before being collected in book form. The author had written two essays with the same name which were published in the earlier The New-England Magazine in November 1831 and February 1832, which are alluded to in a mention of an "interruption" at the start of the very first essay. The essays take the form of a chiefly one-sided dialogue between the unnamed Author and the other residents of a New England boarding house who are known only by their profession, location at the table or other defining characteristics.

Paris: L'Estampe originale. With 9 original lithographs by Maximilen Luce, one of 10 numbered copies on verge de Hollande and justified by the illustrator, the tirage de tete.This copy retains its suite on Japon ancien paper. Three miniscule lacks to edges of upper cover. These are portraits of friends in prison, of which three are of the "eminence grise of symbolism," the anarchist journalist and art critic Felix Feneon. Maximilien Luce (1858-1941) was himself imprisoned at Mazas. The former engraver never stopped vigorously asserting his Socialistic ideas in his work, as well as his sympathy for the anarchist movement. A good and rare copy.%.

MCKENNEY, Thomas Loraine / HALL, James
Published by D. Rice and A. N. Hart, 1858. Bound in contemporary gross-grained morocco, with decorative panels on covers, spine with raised bands and title gilt. Spines slightly scuffed at extremities. Foxing present on text leaves and lithographs. (See Images) Royal octavo edition in a luxurious American morocco binding of this work of Native American history and ethnography, one of the most important works ever published on the American Indians , containing ¿the most colourful portraits of Indians ever executed. The work was wildly popular, printed in folio from 1836-1844 and then in royal octavo from 1848-1850; though the latter was reissued numerous times, for printing quality and plate-colour the present edition remains unsurpassed in its fidelity to the original folio. As the publishers preface states, McKenney and Hall also incorporated new material, including a portrait of the Winnebago chief Red Bird. The project was widely acknowledged as a successful attempt to preserve on paper what had already become a rapidly vanishing group of cultures. The work was issued in several standard bindings, but this one is the most luxurious. Most of the volumes 120 hand coloured lithographs were based on oil paintings by Charles Bird King, employed by the War Department to paint Indian delegates visiting Washington (the paintings were later destroyed in the Smithsonian fire of 1865). The authors open with a portrait and 20-page biography of Red Jacket, a New York Seneca chief. A full 23 of the portraits depict Indians from tribes such as the Sauk, Ojibway and Chippeway, that orig … [Click Below for Full Description]

1858. Condition: Like New. Never used, like new. Originally published in print form in over 40 volumes from 1858 to 1994, The Calendar of State Papers, Colonial is rightly well-known as an essential source for the colonial history of North America and the West Indies. Now available for the first time in an electronic format, this CD-ROM transforms the utility of over 40,000 transcripts and extended abstracts for study and research, and makes possible hitherto difficult and impractical analyses. The Calendar includes the West Indies 1574-1738, and the East Indies, China, Japan and Persia (Iran) 1513-1634. It is a catalogue of state papers comprising extended abstracts or transcripts in modernised spelling of the most important range of British historical material during this time in these territories, which are essential to all historians working on Britain and its colonies. The material includes a wide range of subject areas such as correspondence to and from colonial governors, orders and grants from central government to local administration, and information from the localities. The material is also important as since it includes correspondence from the colonial governors as well as information about the slave trade and piracy, it comprises one of the most substantial sources of North American history before the Revolution.

Punch helped to coin the term "cartoon" in its modern sense as a humorous illustration. Towards the end of the nineteenth century, the artistic roster included Harry Furniss, Linley, Francis Carruthers Gould, and Phil May, with the later volumes depicting illustrations from artists such as Fred Bennett, Ricardo Brook, Charles Harrison, W. Bird, and Harry Low. Punch became a staple for British drawing rooms because of its sophisticated humour and absence of offencive material, especially when viewed against the satirical press of the time. The Times and the Sunday paper News of the World used small pieces from Punch as column fillers, giving the magazine free publicity and indirectly granting a degree of respectability, a privilege not enjoyed by any other comic publication. Punch would share a friendly relationship with not only The Times but journals aimed at intellectual audiences such as the Westminster Review.

Henry David Thoreau
The History of New Bedford - Bristol County, Massachusetts. Daniel Ricketson New Bedford, Self-published 1858 Daniel Ricketson was a Massachusetts contemporary and friend of Henry Thoreau. He sought refuge from the exacerbations of modern life in his own shanty dwelling (albeit not far from a nice main house) before Thoreau did. A Quaker, anti-slavery advocate, writer, and philanthropist, Ricketson sought out famous men of letters particularly within the Transcendental circles of Concord. More notable men rose to greater prominence - Thoreau and Emerson being the cream - but Ricketson hitched his wagon to them. Original publisher's binding with minor spots of rubbing on the covers (one moderate sized spot on rear cover), small damp stain on bottom corner of text through first third, occasional pages with minor foxing/browning else a really nice near fine copy with bright gilt. Affectionately presented to his cousins - signed and dated a year after publication. You'll have difficulty finding a better copy of this book, let alone one with this provenance. The only other signed copy I've seen is housed in New Bedford's Whaling Museum. The book is the first published history of the Old Dartmouth region on the south coast of Massachusetts - an area renowned for its vital whaling industry. This is an important book, scarce presentation, and an opportunity to access a bit of Thoreau magic dust at a fraction of the standard going rate. "There are three major factors that raise The History of New Bedford from mere reminiscences and chronicles to a compendium of the earliest communit … [Click Below for Full Description]

Puccini, Giacomo. (1858-1924)Manon Lescaut, Dramma Lirico. Milano: G. Ricordi & Co.. [1906]. First Edition. Opera completa per Canto e Pianoforte. Riduzione di Carlo Carignani. [PN] 95567. 264 pp. Ricordi blind stamp of 1906. Marbled boards, 1/4 leather with raised ribs, gilt, and stamping on spine. Minor edge wear, minor rubbing to leather spine, previous owner inscription on second free end page. Very Good, clean text, secure binding, supple pages, sharp and bright gilt and stamping along spine. A rare edition which corresponds to the pagination of Hopkinson's Fourth Version (3D) and to no other recorded edition, but with significant differences from Hopkinson's description. Chiefly, the present Act IV does not revert to the second version as Hopkinson describes. Suzanne Scherr ("Editing Puccini's Operas: The Case of 'Manon Lescaut,'" Acta Musicologica Vol. 62, p. 65) also records only Hopkinson's edition of 264 pages with this plate number, but notes that Hopkinson "was deceived by dissimilar versions with similar covers and number of pages," and that "while his bibliography lists six versions, eight versions of this opera have been found." The present edition, with a blindstamp that dates it to between the Hopkinson Fourth and Fifth Versions, is apparently an unrecorded version. Manon Lescaut was Puccini's third opera and his first great success. It premiered in 1893 at the Teatro Regio in Turin, Italy and soon earned him his reputation as a successor to Verdi. Puccini prepared numerous versions of the opera for publication, and while the musical differences between the … [Click Below for Full Description]

McLauchlin, originally of North Carolina, writing from a number of locales over the years all in Alabama, who maintains a correspondence with family back home; sisters Mary and Sarah and brother Neill. [While there are no covers we know the family live in North Carolina.] Archie as he often signs himself writes between 1858 and 1876 mostly from Lower Peach Tree Alabama [13: 1859, 1860 (3), 1866, 1867, 1869 (2), 1870, 1873, 1872, 1875, 1876], Eufaula Barbour County [1: 1858], Lowndes County Alabama [1: 1859] and Ashe (sometimes Ash) Creek Alabama [2: 1858, 1859].

LINCOLN-DOUGLAS DEBATES
Campaign Banner Presented by the Democratic Students of Lombard University to Stephen A. Douglas before Galesburg Debate at Knox College, October 7, 1858. 28 x 28 in. This incredibly rare silk and wool banner consisting of two panels with a horizontal seam across the middle has an embroidered woolen wreath around the inscription in red ink, "From the Democracy / of / Lombard University / to / Stephen A. Douglas." This banner joins the Kansas State Historical Society's Lincoln banner as one of only two known "debate trophies" specifically tied to one of the participants. Historical BackgroundIn 1858, Illinois attorney Abraham Lincoln, a member of the newly formed Republican Party, attempted to unseat the popular Democratic incumbent Stephen A. Douglas, the "Little Giant," from his place in the United States Senate. Lincoln began his campaign for the Douglas's senatorial seat as a virtual unknown. His national prominence and reputation grew, however, as he doggedly pursued Douglas around the state. Wherever Douglas would go to speak, Lincoln would go to rebut him the next day to the same crowd Douglas's campaign had worked to assemble. Soon this stalking in Douglas's shadow earned Lincoln his own following and his esteem within the Republican Party grew. On June 16, 1858-less than two months before this letter-Lincoln won the Republican nomination and delivered his immortal "House Divided" speech, and Douglas could no longer ignore Lincoln. On July 24, Lincoln wrote to Douglas and suggested they "divide time, and address the same audiences." Douglas set the terms of the debat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Shirreff, Emily.
London: John W. Parker and Son, 1858. Emily Shirreff (1814-1897) was an educationist, who helped her sister Maria Grey found the WomenÕs Education Union in 1871 and was, for a time, the principal of Emily DaviesÕ WomenÕs College in Hitchin. Shirreff helped to establish Frobel Society, lecturing and writing extensively on the kindergarten system, and also served as its president. After returning from France to England in 1834 with her family, she published Letters from Spain and Barbary (1835/36) and a novel, Passion and Principle (1841), both written with her sister. The two also collaborated on Thoughts on Self-Culture, Addressed to Women, 1850, where they argued that defective education and inactive lives were the main reasons for womenÕs lack of power and that acceptance of the Òdegrading errorÕ of marriage as being indispensible to womenÕs happiness prevented self-improvement and independence. Shirreff elaborated her principles and suggested a plan of study for girlsÕ education at home under their mothersÕ supervision in Intellectual Education Octavo. vii, [1, blank], 424, [8] pp. PublisherÕs purple cloth stamped decoratively in blind, gilt-lettered spine, brown coated endpapers.
