Paris & Strasbourg, Veuve Berger-Levrault & fils, 1859. Folio (465 x 310 mm). Title, 2 pp. (list of plates), 147 plans and tables (the majority folding). Contemporary half cloth with original printed boards. The monumental atlas volume of this French General Staff account of the most famous operation of the Crimean War. "This book was compiled by General Charles Auger (1809-59), Deputy Chief of Staff of the artillery of the army of the East, based on the original notes of artillery officers who took part in the siege; it was reviewed by the General Thiry, artillery commander of the Eastern army" (cf. Brunet). The Siege of Sevastopol lasted from September 1854 until September 1855, during the Crimean War. The French, Ottoman, and British allies landed at Eupatoria on 14 September 1854, intending to make a triumphal march to Sevastopol, the capital of the Crimea, with 50,000 men. The 56-kilometre traverse took a year of fighting against the Russian forces. Major battles along the way were conducted, and finally, Sevastopol surrendered in September 1855. During the siege, the allied navy undertook six bombardments of the capital, on 17 October 1854; 9 April, 6 June, 17 June, 17 August, and 5 September 1855. The Russian field army withdrew before the allies could encircle it. The siege was the culminating struggle for the strategic Russian port in 1854-55 and was the final episode in the Crimean War. - Boards soiled and rubbed along edges, scattered spotting throughout, some paper flaws.

Chapman, 1859. A very good, first edition, first issue, rebound in leather, with all first issue points. As Hatton and Cleaver note in their bibliography, A Tale of Two Cities has "practically no 'points' sufficiently outstanding to distinguish the earlier printings." However, both H&C and Smith agree that copies with the misprint on page 213 corrected and lacking the signature "b" on page ix are decidedly second printings. This copy has the first issue points.

DICKENS, Charles
London|Chapman and Hall|1859. With illustrations by H.K. Browne. First Edition, First Issue of "A Tale of Two Cities" DICKENS, Charles. A Tale of Two Cities. With Illustrations by H.K. Browne. London: Chapman and Hall, 1859. First edition, first issue. With all eight of Smith's internal flaws necessary for the first issue present, including page 213 misnumbered 113. Octavo (8 1/8 x 5 1/4 inches; 205 x 135 mm). [i-vii] viii [ix-x], [1] 2-254 pp. Sixteen inserted plates, including frontispiece and engraved vignette title, by Browne ['Phiz']. Without the publisher's catalog bound at the end which is not considered essential by Smith. Contemporary three-quarter green pebbled calf over marbled paper boards. Spine stamped and lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Marbled endpapers. Inner margin of frontispiece and title-page reinforced. Some minor rubbing to board edges. A bit of foxing to plates, but text is mainly clean. A tiny 1 cm tear repaired on plate facing page 136. Overall a very good copy. A Tale of Two Cities was first serialized in Dickens's periodical All the Year Round, from April 30-November 26, 1859. Its appearance in monthly parts (July-December 1859) and book form mark Dickens's return to his old publishers Chapman and Hall, after a long stay with Bradbury and Evans. The extremely large audience for the novel in All the Year Round, however, left less than the usual demand for the parts issue and, at first, for the book, both of which are now quite rare. This title also marks the author's final collaboration with Phiz, Dickens's most evocative and most s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Browne, with tissue-guards.

Overall an excellent, bright set. First edition, in the original monthly parts, with all the requisite first issue points as listed by Hatton and Cleaver, except for variant advertisements at rear of parts II, III and VI. The plates, often worn and faint due to the number of impressions, are here clear and defined. Eckel states that only the original parts of Pickwick Papers and Sketches by Boz exceed the parts of A Tale of Two Cities in scarcity (Eckel, p. 86). Dickens's great historical romance, set during the French Revolution, remains one of his best known and most widely read works. Loosely inserted are three previous catalogue slips for the set, one with a manuscript annotation placing it in A. S. W. Rosenbach's 1940 catalogue.

Samuel Smiles [1812-1904], was a Scottish writer, and social reformer.Self-Help became an immediate best-seller and one of the Victorian's most important statements on the virtues of hard work, thrift and perserverance. Smiles was a critic of rapacity and complacent affluence and advocated virtues central to the projects of other 19th century institutions that actively encouraged cultivation of the intellectual and moral working-class self such as mechanics' institutes, public libraries and people's colleges.Smiles later developed this theme with Character 1871, Thrift 1875, and Duty1880. With Charles Darwin's On the origin of species and John Stuart Mill's On Liberty, one of the influential books first published in 1859.This first edition is infrequent and uncommon on the market, especially in the original cloth binding, unrestored and in excellent condition.Printing and the Mind of Man, 346.

Mill's "most widely read book ... represents the final stage in the growth of Utilitarian doctrine ... Mill realized that the 'greatest good' of the community is inseparable from the liberty of the individual. Hitherto, liberty had always been considered relative, in relation to tyranny or oppression: Mill extended tyranny to include a custom-ridden majority, and declared that 'the sole end for which mankind is justified in interfering with liberty of action is self-protection.' ...

Gandon, Adolphe Christophe.
Ohne Ort (wohl Le Locle, Schweiz), (1858-1859). Der Schweizer Maler und Grafiker A. Ch. Gandon (1828-1889) studierte in Genf (u.a. bei Francois Diday) und Paris, wo er „unter viel Entbehrungen an seiner allgemeinen künstlerischen Ausbildung gearbeitet und sich daneben in Museen, militärischen Instituten und auf Armeeübungsplätzen mit militärischen Dingen abgegeben" hat. Sein Interesse galt schon damals der Darstellung aus dem schweizerischen Soldatenleben und der französischen Kriegsgeschichte. Gandon arbeitete nach seiner Rückkehr in den heimatlichen Jura in Le Locle als freischaffender Künstler, später wird er Zeichenlehrer an der Kantonsschule Pruntrut. „In jenen [1850er] Jahren sind die Zeichnungen entstanden [.]. Es kommt ihnen, ganz abgesehen von ihrem künstlerischen Reiz, als Zeitdokument eine nicht geringe Bedeutung darum zu, weil die Zahl der Maler und Graphiker, die sich in den 1850er Jahren um Gesicht und Wesen [der Schweizer] Armee kümmerten, klein ist im Gegensatz zu den Militärmalern in den 1840er und dann wieder in den 1860er Jahren [.].". Die Zeichnungen entstanden zur Zeit einer grundlegenden Reform der Schweizerichen Armee. Auf dem ersten Blatt stellt sich der Künstler selbst mit Stift und Zeichenblock auf seinem Pferd dar. Die folgenden Blätter zeigen die verschiedenen Waffengattungen, die Kavalerie, die Infanterie, die Artillerie, aber auch den Train, die Furageure, die Sanitäter etc. in Aktion. Hier zeigt sich Gandon als „ausgezeichneter Beobachter und sicherer Zeichner, der seine Skizzen auch in lebendigen Kompositionen zu verwerten und atmosphärisch z … [Click Below for Full Description]

BAUDELAIRE Charles
Poulet-Malassis et de Broise, Paris. EDITION ORIGINALE de cette étude consacrée au dédicataire des Fleurs du Mal, précédée d'une lettre de Victor Hugo. Portrait de Gautier gravé par Thérond en frontispice. Tirage à quelques Hollande et 500 exemplaires sur papier légèrement bleuté, dont celui-ci. >Bel exemplaire broché. >>>Baudelaire avait fait la connaissance de Gautier vers 1845. Après lui avoir dédié son premier recueil de poèmes en 1857, il lui consacre cette étude qui paraitra d'abord le 13 mars 1859 dans l'Artiste, illustré alors d'un portrait de l'écrivain par Bracquemond. Pour l'édition en volume, Poulet-Malassis a repris le portrait de Gautier par Thérond publié l'année précédente pour Emaux et camées. Pour ce frontispice, l'artiste s'est inspiré d'une photographie de Nadar. Baudelaire lui ne reprendra que très légèrement soin texte, mais demandera à Victor Hugo une préface. " J'ai besoin d'une voix plus haute que la mienne et que celle de Théophile Gautier, de votre voix dictatoriale. Je veux être protégé ! " écrit-il au maître en septembre 1859. Hugo répondra favorablement, définissant ainsi la poésie de Baudelaire : " Vous marchez. Vous allez de l'avant. Vous dotez le ciel de l'Art d'on ne sait quel rayon macabre. Vous créez un frisson nouveau ". [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

MILL, John Stuart
John W. Parker and Son. First edition. 8vo. Original publisher's brown cloth with gilt titles to the spine and blind ruled borders to the covers. A very good copy indeed, with some fading to the spine faded part of the rear cover as usual and a little wear to the head of the spine. Ownership inscription to the reverse of the front endpaper and annotation to the head of the dedication leaf, otherwise generally fresh with just a little loosening between sections. Hinges in perfect condition. Tipped in to the front endpaper is a contemporary review in The Spectator. An exceptionally well preserved copy which is very seldom encountered without repair. Mill's most significant work on the importance of freedom of speech, upon which much of his lasting influence rests. Described on publication, "one of those remarkable works whose appearance forms an event in literature, as its perusal constitutes an epoch in the reader's mind." (The Spectator, Feb 1859) "Many of Mill's ideas are now the commonplaces of democracy. His arguments for freedom of every kind of thought and speech have never been improved on. He was the first to recognize the tendency of a democratically elected majority to tyrannize over a minority" (PMM). PMM 345 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

TEXAS JOHN SLAUGHTER, JOHN HORTON SLAUGHTER, SHERIFF SLAUGHTER
TEXAS, KENTUCKY: Important, Rare, Handwritten Letter by JOHN HORTON SLAUGHTER (aka TEXAS JOHN SLAUGHTER, SHERIFF SLAUGHTER, JOHN H. SLAUGHTER), written in 1859 when he was only 18 years old. Single Page Handwritten Letter, single sheet, light blue laid paper with a nickel size blind embossed emblem at the upper right corner, approximately 7.75 x 12 inches. GOOD condition, several folds where the letter was probably folded to fit into a small envelope (NO envelope is present), very small holes where a couple folds intersect, a few ink stains on the blank back side, otherwise solid with writing that is fully legible. Folded is how the letter was preserved and is its normal state. The letter was written to John H. Slaughter's 22 year old friend and trusted horse selling partner JOHN B. LINDSEY, of Frankfort, Kentucky. (The Lindsey / Lindsay family is an old and prominent Kentucky family, as are its relations.) The contents of the letter seem to indicate a familial relationship of some sort between the Slaughter and Lindsey family lines. This pre Civil War letter written at the age of 18 is by far the earliest letter of JOHN HORTON SLAUGHTER that I have seen. It gives a glimpse of his life and ambitions that have rarely, if ever, been recorded. The letter reads in great part: "(??)

Germany: 11-14 July 1859.

Safford, written from 1859-1866, including 51 letters from Safford to his wife Clara between June 1862 and October 1866, detailing his enlistment, experiences in camp in the western theater, his wounding and convalescence in army hospitals, his commission as a captain in the U.S.C.T., and his experiences in Virginia after the war in mustering soldiers out, participating in courts martial, and leading a company of African-American troops.

Safford, Charles' brother and fellow soldier, to Clara; 11 letters from Clara to Charles, all from 1865; and 8 letters from his mother and other relatives in Massachusetts to Charles in 1865.

Postwar letters include 39 love letters from Thomas Brooks to Clara Safford from 1870-1871, shortly before he became her second husband; 11 letters from Mary L.
