      London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts,, 1859. In the army under the Duke of Wellington. Written during the Peninsular and Waterloo Campaigns. Edited by Major-General Edward Sabine of the Royal Artillery. Octavo. Original red straight-grain cloth by Edmonds & Remnants, titles to spine gilt, cannon vignettes to spine and front cover gilt, frame blocked in blind to covers, brown coated endpapers, adverts to pastedowns. Frontispiece portrait with facsimile signature and 3 maps, of which 1 is folding. Binder's ticket to rear pastedown. Head of spine restored, inner hinges starting to crack but holding, spine faded, slight wear to extremities; a very good copy. First edition. Frazer (1776–1835), was gazetted second lieutenant, Royal Artillery aged 17 on 18 September 1793 and quickly rose through the ranks of the Army. He "soon became a favourite with Wellington, and was well rewarded for his services" (ODNB). This work includes 104 letters from the Peninsula and 41 from France and Belgium in 1815. In these letters Frazer describes both his military prowess, "in ten minutes the enemy was driven from the wood", and the effect of the war on the local populations, "there were at least ten women to one man". With the contemporary ownership inscription of John Edward Maunsell to the front pastedown. Maunsell served for the Royal Horse Artillery in Major G. Beane's troop, the Light 6-Pounders, at the Battle of Waterloo, having been promoted to First Lieutenant on 1 June 1806 and to Second Captain on 24 March 1807. In a letter to H. T. Siborne in 1834 Maunsell describes the movements of his troop during the battle; "Major Bean's Troop, under my command, was formed on the ridge a good deal to the right of the Brussels road, immediately in front of the Imperial Guards, and continued firing on the advancing Columns ... after this the Troop advanced to where the Duke of Wellington and his Staff took post". Maunsell retired on half pay in 1826 and died in 1869 having avoided the fate of his fellow officers, "Major Bean having been killed, Captain Webber wounded, and Lieut. Cromie, having had both his legs taken off". Frazer mentions Major Bean and his troops a number of times in this work, recording his death in a letter wriiten at 11pm on June 18th, "I am now so tired that I can barely hold my pen ... I know not of the losses of other corps, nor hardly of our own; but Bean, Cairnes, and Ramsay, are among the horse artillery dead". The editor, Edward Sabine (1788–1883), began his military at fourteen and "was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Royal Artillery in December 1803" however "with the end of fighting in North America and of the Napoleonic wars in 1815, Sabine, like many British officers, turned his attention to science and exploration" (ODNB). This copy additionally with the bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst to the front free endpaper, heir to a successful chain of dispensing chemists: "A collector of books ... acquired slowly and with discrimination over the years" (The Chemist and Druggist, 7 September 1957).

        Ph. Fr. von Siebold's letzte Reise nach Japan 1859-1862 . von seinem ältesten Sohne.Berlin, Kisak Tamai, 1903. 8vo (22.5 x 14 cm). With title-page in Japanese and German, 2 half-tone plates showing photographic portraits of Philip von Siebold (1 with his son Alexander) and 3 photographic views in the text. Original publisher's printed cloth-covered paper wrappers, with publisher's advertisements printed on paste-downs.

      - Cordier, Japonica, col. 477; not in Nipponalia. Rare first edition of the account of Siebold's second and final journey to, and stay in, Japan, from 1859 till 1861, written by his eldest son, Alexander von Siebold (1846-1911), who accompanied his father Philip Franz von Siebold (1796-1866) on the trip and gives a lively account of their experiences. They travelled first to Batavia and then to Japan, where they stayed in Von Siebold's home Narutaki near Nagasaki. Von Siebold practised medicine there as he had in the 1820s, and many of his old patients and students came to visit him. Von Siebold also continued to search for material for his botanical collection. Alexander's account informs the reader about religious customs and literature, his own experiences in learning to speak Malayan and Japanese, and mastering the difficult art of writing Japanese using the Chinese "kan" (kanji) characters, also discussing the Japanese hiragana and katakana syllabary systems. Besides the four pages of advertisements (by Kisak Tamai and Foek) following the main text, the paste-downs contain further Kisak Tamai advertisements.Slightly browned, but otherwise in very good condition. Wrappers slightly soiled.

The only published account of the Third Niger Expedition which was intended to "establish trading stations on the Niger's banks" profiting from trade in their immediate locales, but also taking advantage of proximity to Kano, the "most important market city" in West Africa (Howgego). "The third Niger expedition was not accidental. It was a result of the success recorded in the second expedition of 1854, and the recommendations of Samuel Crowther about the voyage that prompted the British Government to set in motion this third expedition that was later to be labelled the 'New Era of the commercial history of West Africa'" (Adeuyan, The Journey of the First Black Bishop: Bishop Samuel Ajayi Crowther 1806 - 1891, pp.125-6). Crowther was a Yoruba who was captured as a slave during the civil wars, and freed when the Portuguese slaver he was on was taken by the British Navy. Freed in Sierra Leone in 1821, he was educated by the Church Missionary Society, baptized in 1825, becoming a schoolteacher in 1841. He was sent to England and ordained in 1845, returning to Yorubaland in 1846 as a missionary, baptizing his first convert in 1862. "He became bishop of 'Western Equatorial Africa beyond the Queen's Dominions' in 1864, a post he held until 1890" (Howgego). Prize inscription verso of the front free endpaper recording presentation to G.C Spencer by the headmaster of Chatham House, the Rev. Alfred Whitehead, father of the great mathematician and philosopher Alfred North Whitehead. Henze,I, p.756; Howgego, IV, B6(B). [Attributes: First Edition]

Rare first edition of the account of Siebold's second and final journey to, and stay in, Japan, from 1859 till 1861, written by his eldest son, Alexander von Siebold (1846-1911), who accompanied his father Philip Franz von Siebold (1796-1866) on the trip and gives a lively account of their experiences. They travelled first to Batavia and then to Japan, where they stayed in Von Siebold's home Narutaki near Nagasaki. Von Siebold practised medicine there as he had in the 1820s, and many of his old patients and students came to visit him. Von Siebold also continued to search for material for his botanical collection. Alexander's account informs the reader about religious customs and literature, his own experiences in learning to speak Malayan and Japanese, and mastering the difficult art of writing Japanese using the Chinese "kan" (kanji) characters, also discussing the Japanese hiragana and katakana syllabary systems. Besides the four pages of advertisements (by Kisak Tamai and Foek) following the main text, the paste-downs contain further Kisak Tamai advertisements.Slightly browned, but otherwise in very good condition. Wrappers slightly soiled.

        Faust Opéra en Cinq Actes, de MMrs. Jules Barbier & Michel Carré... Partition Piano & Chant, Arrangée par Léo Delibes Prix: 15 F. net. [Piano-vocal score]

      Paris: Choudens [PN A.C. 664.], 1859. First Edition. "The very rare first edition in opéra-comique form with dialogue was published in the middle of May 1859 according to an advertisement in Le Ménestrel and was the only one to appear thus. It was only on sale for a few months." Hopkinson: Notes on the Earliest Editions of Gounod's Faust, p. 246. Fuld p. 510. Faust was first performed at the Théâtre Lyrique in Paris on March 19th 1859 in a version with spoken dialogue; recitatives were added in 1860, and a ballet in 1869. The libretto by Barbier and Carre is based on Goethe, but focuses on the love story between Faust and Marguerite. "The historical importance of Faust is that it sounded a new note in French music. The conventional pomposities of the grand opera which then dominated the stage were superseded by a more intimate and poetic approach. The fashion Gounod set was one of conversational exchange rather than declamation." James Harding, Gounod, p. 114.. Large octavo. Quarter modern brown morocco with patterned boards. 1f. (recto decorative lithographic title by P. de Grauzat printed in black, with portraits of Marguerite, Faust, and Méphistophélès, verso blank), 1f. (recto named cast list and table of contents), 224 pp. Named cast includes Earbot, Balanqué, Reynald, Cibot, Carvalho, Faibre, and Duclos. With publisher's small oval handstamp to lower right corner of title. Spine slightly abraided. Occasional light foxing and intralinear marks in pencil; title very slightly trimmed at lower margin.

        TO THE PUBLIC. FACTS AGAINST ASSERTIONS--- PROOF AGAINST DENUNCIATIONS.

      [Galveston?]: 1859 - Folio sheet, folded to 8-3/8" x 11-1/4". [4]pp, each page printed in three columns. Toned. Old fold lines, a couple of short tears [no text loss] and a few pinholes [no text loss]. A rare, apparently unrecorded imprint. Good+. Signed in type by Andrew Neill at the end and dated, also in type, "August 5th '59." Neill was a Texas lawyer who had fought in its War of Independence. Engaged also in politics, he lost his election for Lieutenant Governor in 1855. His papers are at the University of Texas. Neill opposed Thomas Waul's run for Congress against Andrew Hamilton in 1859. Waul, a lawyer and plantation owner, would become a Confederate Congressman and a soldier for the Confederacy. [See, Handbook of Texas]. Neill says that Waul's "conduct has been illiberal, ungentlemanly, and cowardly." Buttressing his charges with documentation from newspaper accounts, Neill charges that Waul had pillaged an estate "of which he was trustee," taking for himself "some of the slaves, that belonged to the estate." Some of those slaves were the subject of sales transactions between Waul and Robert E. Lee. Neill expands on the evidence supporting his assertions, and denounces Waul's chicanery.Not in Eberstadt, Sabin, Decker, Raines, Rader, Graff. As of March 2016 we do not locate this rarity on OCLC or the online sites of AAS, Yale, Harvard, SMU, U TX., NYPL, Newberry, Library of Congress.
