        Chechnya and the Chechens].

      Tiflis 1859 - 8vo. (20.8 x 14.2 cm). VIII, 140 pp., with a folding lithographed map of Chechnya; small abrasion holes in inner margin of pp. 1-2 not affecting text, occasional underlines in text. Recent full green calf gilt, flat spine gilt. Very rare description of Chechnya detailing its geography and complex ethic composition. The author also looks at the customs and traditions of the Chechens, the structure of their society, folklore, and their justice system, which is based on Sharia law. The text is accompanied by a large folding map of the region. The year this book was published was something of a turning point for Chechnya; in 1859 the Russian Empire succeeded in capturing Imam Shamil, a leader of Chechnya's anti-Russian resistance and the third Imam of the Caucasian Imamate. This essentially ended the war in the Northern Caucasus and allowed the Russian Empire to establish control over the region. Adolph Bergé (1828 – 1886) was an Imperial Russian bureaucrat and an Orientalist, with principal interests in the history and culture of the Caucasus. A St. Petersburg native, Bergé's father was from France and his mother was from Germany. Trained in Oriental Studies at St. Petersburg University, Bergé was dispatched to the chancellery of the Viceroy of the Caucasus, Prince Mikhail Vorontsov, in 1851. He also made two scholarly trips to Persia in 1853 and 1855. From 1864 to his death, Bergé chaired the Tiflis-based Caucasian Archaeographical Commission. Rare. Absent from the collections of NYPL, Library of Congress, Yale and Stanford University libraries and the British Library. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        CAUCASUS: ASLAN DER ABREK. EIN LEBENSBILD AUS DEN KAUKASISCHEN GEBIRGEN. VON EINEM DEUTSCHRUSSEN.

      Jeglava (Mitau), Latvia: Reyher . 1859 - Small 8ø, 132 pp., [1] advertisement, original grey wrappers with printed title (Very Good, minor staining, wrappers slightly stained, with old hand-written remarks, spine renewed). [Aslan the Abrek. A Story from the Caucasian Mountains. By a German-Russian] This rare book is the first European, non-Russian, story on a Caucasian abrek (a North Caucasian Christian soldier) and was published in German language in Jeglava, today in Latvia. This is the first recorded story, printed in Europe outside Russia, on an abrek, a North Caucasian rebel soldier, fighting against Russians. Abrek is a North Caucasian term for a soldier fighting against the Russian invasions in 16th-19th centuries. It originates from the Bible meaning in Hebrew "to kneel" or "prostrate in front of the God". In 20th Century abreks were fighting against the Russian opression. In Chechen or Ingush the word abrek has the meaning as "avenger", in Cherkess or Karachai the word has the meaning as "brave man?, but in Russian it has a derogatory meaning as "bandit". The book, which was published in Jeglava, today a city in Latvia, was printed in Leipzig and passed the censorship on March 27, 1859, in Riga. Only two examples are known in the libraries worldwide (Berlin State Library, OCLC: 251359367, and the British Library (with wrongly transcribed title Aolan der Abrek, OCLC: 560105724).

        Confederate General] William H. Hardee’s Tactical Formations Autograph Letter Signed to General Townsend

      - This letter about tactical formations was written in October 31, 1859 to Hardee's friend, then Adjutant General of New York, Frederick Townsend. William H. Hardee had become quite famous in military circles in the 1850s, after the 1855 publication of his Rifle and Light Infantry Tactics for the Exercise and Manoeuvres of Troops When Acting as Light Infantry or Riflemen. This book, known colloquially as "Hardee's Tactics," was the most widely used drill manual of its time. It was updated at the turn of the decade and was used by both sides during the American Civil War. In this letter from the Military Academy, West Point, William Hardee writes to General Townsend about tactical formations, how companies are “forted” according to the rank of the Captains. He explains how each Captain is assigned a different company, as “In line of battle the most important points are the right, left and center, and the line being always formed into columns with the right, left or center (double columns) in front. One of the three senior Captains by this arrangement will always command the leading division.” The first page of the letter illustrates this formation. Hardee later explains that that such deployment is maintained, so that in the absence of the Captain, the 1st Lieutenant or a Junior Captain can command the company: “He takes the place between the companies not to exercise command but to preserve the continuity of the line and to be in position to spring to the fence when the division [is] broken.” He adds in “unavoidable” cases, “A good soldier while preferring to be commanded by his . . . officers should be none the less ready to obey any officer who shall be appointed over him by the proper authority.” The letter is signed “With . . . respect Your Friend, W. H. Hardee.” In a postscript, he adds “If [he has not] made [him]self understood” that he would be happy to give more information. William J. Hardee (1815-1873) graduated from West Point in 1838 and spent a career of nearly 30 years in the army. Between the Seminole Wars and the Mexican War, he studied military tactics in France, at the behest of the US Army. In 1853, he returned to West Point as a tactics instructor and wrote his famous tactics manual. Hardee also invented the "Hardee Hat," used on both sides of the War, during his tenure at West Point. When his home state of Georgia seceded from the Union, Hardee joined the Confederate Army. Promoted to Lieutenant General, he fought in a number of major battles, including Perryville and Stones River in 1862, where he fought against his old friend, Frederick Townsend. Frederick Townsend (1825-1897) was an attorney and gold prospector before beginning his military career in the New York militia. He was named Adjutant General of New York in 1857. He was appointed a Major in the 18th US Infantry in 1861 and fought in several significant battles, including those mentioned above. Written in ink on four sides of a folded white stationery with an embossed crest of a soldier on top left corners; approximately 10” x 15” when unfolded. Condition: Some stains along the perimeter. A larger darker stain on the last page, but text is readable. A thumbnail-size paper loss suggests a rodent bite and affects a few letters of text. Even with faults a great letter.

        Five watercolour paintings on paper mounted on card.

      1859–60 1859 - Image size oval 160 x 93mm. Gilt framed and glazed, cream mounts trimmed in gold. Delicate colours still nicely differentiated, all in fine condition. A lovely group of original images, three signed by the artist, two annotated: together they constitute a complete parable. Admonished by a old crone not to eat any of the apples she has stored in her bushel, three little cherubs ignore her. They egg each other on to taste the fruit and suffer consequent stomach ache. Finally the old woman, strangely transformed into a kind of Brunhilda figure, returns to lead the now wiser children home. A charming and attractive group probably done for one of a number of little chapbooks published in England in the 1860s illustrated by Frolich, the Danish artist best known as the original illustrator of Hans Christian Andersen. His early work is monochrome: colour examples like these are deeply uncommon. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Pathologie und Therapie der Psychosen. Nebst Anhang: Ueber das gerichtsärztliche Verfahren bei Erforschung krankhafter Seelenzustände

      Berlin Hirschwald, 1859 - EA. - Gewidmet dem Psychiater Peter Jessen (1793-1875) als "eine Gegengabe" für seinen 1855 erschienenen "Versuch einer wissenschaftlichen Begründung der Psychologie". Flemming (1799-1880) war Gründer der mustergültigen Anstalt Sachsenberg bei Schwerin. Er setzte bei dem Neubau durch, dass er nicht in der Einöde, sondern in der Nähe von Schwerin erfolgte, und leitete die Anstalt von 1830 bis 1854. Dies Buch schrieb er, nachdem er (laut Vorwort) durch "die Ungunst der Verhältnisse" ausgeschieden war. Die Behörden hatten während der Jahre der Reaktion nach 1848 gegen seinen Willen die Amtswohnung eines Geistlichen in die Anstalt verlegt. Neben Jacobi, Nasse und Roller war Flemming Hauptvertreter der sog. Somatiker. Mit Roller und Damerow begründete er die "Allgemeine Zeitschrift für Psychiatrie". - Mit den Vorbesitzersignaturen von (Friedrich) Jolly (Direktor der psychiatrischen Klinik in Strassburg und zuletzt Berlin-Charite), Kurt Schneider (dat. [19]38) und Gerhard Schmidt (Assistent bei Kurt Schneider an der psychiatrischen Klinik München-Schwabing und Autor des Werkes "Selektion in der Heilanstalt"; dat. 1942) Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 596 22 x 14cm, zeitgen. Pappband, rotes Rückenschild mit goldgeprägtem Titel, berieben und bestoßen, Rotschnitt, drei Vorbesitzersignaturen auf Vorsatz; XXIV, 487 S. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Odes and Sonnets Illustrated. SPECIALLY BOUND PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE BROTHERS DALZIEL TO MRS. FREDERICK WARNE.

      1859 - George Routledge & Co. London. 1859. First edition. The Pictures in this Book are by Birket Foster. The Ornamental Designs by John Sleigh. Engraved and Printed by The Brothers Dalziel. The poems are by Milton, Spenser, Earl of Surrey, Herrick, Charlotte Smith, Smollett, Shakespeare, etc., etc. This unique copy has been bound in full morocco with decorations in gilt and blind that are found on the ordinary, though still scarce, cloth first edition. All edges gilt. To the reverse of the front free endpaper is the following: "Mrs. Frederick Warne, with best regards of The Brothers Dalziel. December, 1958." Colour ornamental half-title and title page with colour initial letters and decorations throughout. Tinted, very delicately coloured illustrations by Birket Foster, engraved by the Brothers Dalziel. Very beautifully marbled endpapers. Inner hinge partially visible but sound, front hinge previously repaired along lower half. First gathering is slightly proud from the rest of the text. Occasional foxing. A lovely copy of a unique volume from the family of Frederick Warne, the famous publisher. At only 14 Frederick Warne, who was born in 1925, joined his brother William Henry Warne and his brother-in-law George Routledge, in the retail bookselling business which Routledge had founded in 1836 in Ryder's Court, Leicester Square. Routledge started a publishing business in 1843, and in 1851 Warne became a partner in the firm, which was then styled Routledge & Co. From 1851 to 1865 Warne was largely identified with the success of the firm. In 1865, on the advice of the publisher George Smith, of Smith, Elder & Co., Warne began an independent publishing career. He married on 6 July 1852, Louisa Jane, daughter of William Fruing of Jersey and his three surviving sons were the publishers of the Beatrix Potter books. Norman Warne was engaged to Potter but died before they were married. We acquired this from a descendant of the original family who lived at The Mill, the Warne family home.

        THE RECOLLECTIONS OF GEOFFRY HAMLYN.

      - In three volumes. Pp. [ii]+vi+276(last blank)+24(publisher's catalogue, dated April 15, 1859)+viii+324+viii+376(last blank)+24(publisher's catalogue, April 1859); dark blue textured cloth, spines lettered in gilt, boards with blind rule borders, the edges lightly rubbed and occasionally slightly bruised, spines lightly faded; uncut; bookseller's sticker on upper pastedown and binder's ticket of Burn & Kirby on lower pastedown each volume, hinges cracking Volumes I & III, several leaves faintly creased, a couple of tiny edge chips or splits, scattered light foxing and occasional slight soiling; Macmillan and Co., Cambridge, 1859. First edition. Miller & Macartney p. 268; Sadleir, 1360; Wolff, 3825. * The author's first and most famous work, 'notable among early works of fiction having their origin in Australian experience' [Miller & Macartney, p. 269]. Henry Kingsley, younger brother of the author of \i The Water Babies , arrived in Australia in 1853 and spent time in the bush and on the Victorian goldfields. He is said to have begun writing \i The Recollections of Geoffrey Hamlyn at the suggestion of Thomas Browne (Rolf Boldrewood). This set is from the collection of the author and literary critic Clement Shorter (1857-1926), whose bookplate, designed by Walter Crane, is on the upper pastedown of each volume. Shorter edited an edition of Kingsley's novels (12 volumes) in the mid 1890s. The later ownership sticker of Australian book collector Rollo Hammet is on the upper pastedown of the first volume. Loosely inserted is an undated ALs from Kingsley to a Mr. Lovejoy: presumably George Lovejoy, whose Subscription Circulating Library in Reading, founded in 1832 and purchased by Miss Eliza Langley in 1884, was said to rival Mudie's library in London. The letter is undated, but probably from the early 1860s, because Kingsley, who edited Macmillan's Globe Edition of Defoe's\i Robinson Crusoe in 1868, asks to be sent a copy of 'Crusoes Island' [sic], being 'very much in want of it'. According to Sadleir [p. 194] Macmillan used the same cloth for the binding of Charles Kingsley's \i Westward Ho and it was known as 'Kingsley style.' [Attributes: Hard Cover]
