"On Liberty" by John Stuart Mill. Published in 1859 by John W. Parker and Son in London. Second edition, as stated on the title page. The book measures approximately 7.75" x 5.25", and is 207 pages long, with an additional 8 pages of advertisements. The book is in good minus condition. Moderate wear and staining to the brown cloth boards. Tearing and chipping to the cloth on the spine. The book is a little cocked with an overbite. Underlining and notations in pen and pencil throughout the text. Previous owner's bookplate (Louis Blake Duff) on the front pastedown. Pen inscription on the front endpaper and preface. Ownership signatures penned on the title page. A key work by Mill, partially based on Utilitarian doctrine, remarkable for establishing philosophically the virtue of the liberty of the individual as an absolute good for the community as a whole, rather than simply as a relative virtue, in relation to tyranny and oppression. In large part, the modern liberal concept of democracy depends on the ethical theory expressed by Mill; much of what we now consider innate to our belief in democratic rule and the appropriate limits of the power of government over the individual was first articulated in these pages. PMM 345. Please view the many other rare titles available for purchase at our store. We are always interested in purchasing individual or collections of fine books. Inventory #(D8-51).

R. J. Prickett
Book Title: THE REV. J.W. LOGUEN, AS SLAVE AND AS FREEMAN Author: J. W. Loguen (Jermain Wesley), 1814-1872. Jermain Wesley Loguen was born around 1814 in Davidson County, Tennessee, to an enslaved mother named Jane (who was later renamed Cherry) and her white master, David Logue. Originally named Jarm Logue, he later added the "n" to his last name to differentiate himself from his slave-master father and adopted the middle name "Wesley" to reflect his Wesleyan Methodist sympathies. When he was in his early twenties, Loguen escaped from slavery and fled to Canada. He eventually settled in New York state, enrolled in the abolitionist Oneida School in 1839, and later established a school in Utica, New York, for African American children. He moved to Syracuse, New York, in 1841, founded another school, and married Caroline Storum, with whom he had five children. Loguen was ordained by the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Zion Church in 1842 and became increasingly involved with the anti-slavery movement, working with other abolitionists, including Frederick Douglass, on the lecture circuit. Loguen publicly denounced the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law and swore to defy it. He even advertised himself as a prominent Underground Railroad conductor in an April 1855 issue of Frederick Douglass' Paper, writing "that the Underground Railroad was never doing a better business than at present. . . . I speak officially, as the agent and keeper of an Underground Railroad Depot." Loguen served as pastor of Zion Church in Binghamton, New York, in the early 1860s, and after the Civil War became act … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Horton 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: "(??) August 24, 1859. / Dear John / Yours of the 8th has been received and the draft for $500 which was very acceptable. You say you have not heard from me in a long time. I answered your other letter acknowledging the receipt of the other draft & your Aunt also wrote in it making a long letter. I hope yo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Samuel Smiles
Not seen at auction since 1983. Samuel Smiles (23 December 1812 - 16 April 1904), was a Scottish author and reformer. The origins of this work, Smiles' most famous, lay in a speech he gave in March 1845 in response to a request by a Mutual Improvement Society, published as The Education of the Working Classes. Routledge rejected publishing Self-Help in 1855. Twenty years later Smiles was seated next to George Routledge at a dinner, and he said to him: "And when, Dr. Smiles, are we to have the honour of publishing one of your books?" Smiles replied that Mr. Routledge had had the honour of rejecting Self-Help. Although John Murray was willing to publish Self-Help on a half-profits system, Smiles rejected this as he did not want the book to lose its anecdotes. In 1859 he published the book at his own expense and risk, retaining the copyright and paying John Murray ten per cent. commission. It sold 20,000 copies within one year of its publication. Bound by Edmonds and Remnants of London, with a binder's label to rear pastedown. Publisher's catalogue to rear. In a cloth-covered binding. Externally, worn with bumping to extremities. Splitting to joints and loss to cloth at head and tail of spine. Internally, generally firmly bound. Generally bright but with foxing throughout, though heavy only to first and last few pages.

Charles Dickens "A Tale of Two Cities" First Edition, First Issue Rebound Chapman, 1859. 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. Foxing, all plates and some pages have been inserted. All plates and pages are present, except no publisher's catalog, which is not present in all copies. Housed in custom-made collector's cloth slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition]

MARX BROTHERS (GROUCHO, CHICO, HARPO):
Lifelong authenticity guarantee! Lebenslange Echtheitsgarantie! mint condition; guter Zustand. Die Marx Brothers waren eine US-amerikanische Komikertruppe, die durch Filme sowie Fernseh- und Theaterauftritte mit musikalischen Einlagen bekannt wurde und ihnen nachfolgende Komiker maßgeblich inspiriert hat. Sie zählten über Jahrzehnte zu den beliebtesten Komikern Amerikas. Sie entstammten einer Familie, die in Yorkville in New Yorks Upper East Side lebte, einem Viertel, das zwischen dem irisch-deutschen und dem italienischen Viertel lag. Die Familie der Mutter Minnie Schönberg war aus Dornum in Ostfriesland eingewandert, der Vater Simon Samuel (Sam) Marx (1859–1933) stammte aus Mertzwiller im Elsass, was ihm später den Spitznamen „Frenchie“ einbrachte.[1] Als Marx Brothers traten auf: Chico (Leonard Marx, 22. März 1887 bis 11. Oktober 1961) Harpo (Adolph Arthur Marx, 23. November 1888 bis 28. September 1964) Groucho (Julius Henry Marx, 2. Oktober 1890 bis 19. August 1977) Gummo (Milton Marx, 23. Oktober 1892 bis 21. April 1977) Zeppo (Herbert Marx, 25. Februar 1901 bis 29. November 1979) (der älteste Sohn Manfred verstarb bereits im Kindesalter, noch vor Chicos Geburt) The Marx Brothers were an American family comedy act that was successful in vaudeville, on Broadway, and in motion pictures from 1905 to 1949. Five of the Marx Brothers' thirteen feature films were selected by the American Film Institute (AFI) as among the top 100 comedy films, with two of them (Duck Soup and A Night at the Opera) in the top twelve.

Einzige Ausgabe dieses seltenen und monumentalen Werkes mit sehr schönen Tafeln. Die nach Fotografien gezeichneten Darstellungen zeigen die hervorragendsten 27 Exemplare der 500 auf der landwirtschaftlichen Ausstellung im Augarten 1857 ausgestellten Rinderrassen. Jede Tafel mit einem Rind vor landschaftlichem Hintergrund mit Angabe der Rasse, des Alters und des Eigentümers. - Unter den ausgestellten Rassen befinden sich auch 2 württembergische Tiere. - Die besonders hohe Qualität der Abbildungen ergibt sich aus dem ungewöhnlichen Verfahren einer sehr frühen photographischen Erfassung der Tiere. "Die k.k. Staatsdruckerei, mit jener Aufnahme betraut, errichtete im Ausstellungslocale ein Atelier und es wurden, ungeachtet mannigfacher solch einem Beginnen sich entgegenstellender Schwierigkeiten siebenund-zwanzig Thiere aufgenommen. Neben dem Photographen, durch welchen die Contouren und Grössenverhältnisse fixirt wurden, war ein Maler beschäftigt, das Colorit zu geben, um dasselbe später auf die photographischen und lithographischen Abdrücke übertragen zu können. Die Notizen, welche jedem Blatte beigegeben sind, haben den Zweck, einerseits die Natur der Racen und ihre Ansprüche an Klima, Futter, Pflege, andererseits ihre Eigenschaften bezüglich der Benützung als Milch-, Zug- und Mastvieh zu constatieren" (Vorwort). - Stellenweise etwas stockfleckig.

SIEBOLD, Alexander Freiherr von.
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.

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. [Attributes: First Edition]

Thompson (Charles Thurston).
1859. 61 photographs on 60 leaves, plus pencil & ink drawing, printed card; 3 pages of indexed manuscript notes Folio Covers lightly rubbed and worn; a most attractive copy, Original manuscript copy, indexed by Thompson, giving a brief description of each photographed item, its owner (including Her Majesty the Queen, Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, the Duke of Buccleuch, the Duke of Northumberland, Louvre Collection, Oxford Collection etc.) and page number within the volume.Charles Thurston Thompson (1816-1868) became interested in the field of photography in his 30s, practising the wet collodian technique in 1851. In that same year he met Henry Cole and assisted with the photographic arrangements for the Great Exhibition, and worked with the photographer Robert Bingham on photographic prints published in the Reports of the Juries (1851). The success of the exhibition led to the establishment of the South Kensington Museum (now V&A). Henry Cole and his fellow museum officials were keenly aware of the importance photography could play in the development and promotion of the collection, and Thompson was hired as a freelance photographer to photograph the objects on loan to the museum, and in 1856 was appointed its official photographer thus establishing the earliest museum photographic service in the world. Purportedly a Louis XVI armorial binding in contemporary full crimson goatskin, covers elaborately tooled gilt with scrolls, wheatsheafs, curclicues and leafy sprays, royal arms centrally stamped gilt, spine elaborately tooled gilt in compartments, all edges gilt, in … [Click Below for Full Description]

ZADEH, Kemal Pascha.
Paris, l’Imprimerie Impériale, 1859.8vo. Original printed wrappers, uncut. VII,199,(166) pp.L'histoire de la campagne de Mohacz due à la plume de Kemal Pacha Zadeh est rédigée avec beaucoup d'élégance. Ses appréciations sur la situation politique de l'Europe vis-à-vis de l'Empire Ottoman peuvent ne pas flatter notre amour-propre. Mais à ne faut pas oublier qu'au XVIe siècle la Turquie était une puissance réellement colossale, contre laquelle aucune des puissances occidentale n'était en état de lutter. Quant au reproche de fanatisme que l'on pourrait se croire en droit d'adresser à l'historien, il n'est personne qui ignore qu'à cette époque les écrivains chrétiens étaient loin de donner aux musulmans l'exemple de l'impartialité et de la modération.

John Horton 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: "(??) August 24, 1859. / Dear John / Yours of the 8th has been received and the draft for $500 which was very acceptable. You say you have not heard from me in a long time. I answered your other letter acknowledging the receipt of the other draft & your Aunt also wrote in it making a long letter. I hope yo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Privately printed, Niagara. 180pp (last leaf blank, penultimate leaf verso comprising "Errata" list); bound with tissue flyleaves & pink endleaves in blocked red cloth with gilt title on spine; 153 x 103 x 17 mm. First edition, second state of the author's first regular book - a poem of 6000 lines in twelve cantos composed at 29 in 1846 - set, printed & bound by him at the Niagara Mail (the newspaper he ultimately bought seven years later). Preceded by an unauthorized pamphlet reprinting a letter to the editor of the Niagara Mail, 'Counter Manifesto to the Annexationists of Montreal' by Britannicus (1849: John A. Davidson, Niagara); & three broadsheet poems (1852/3/7) issued after the author had taken over the newspaper. Originally printed without Dedication or Errata pages (first galleys sent to a friend, February 1859), with a few copies bound up in September 1859; Kirby reset the first gathering on receiving permission to dedicate the poem to Chief Justice of Upper Canada, John B. Robinson [p4]. The second state was completed in December, with copies offered for sale at 75 cents (at Whitelaw's in Niagara; & Walker's & Copeland's in St Catharines). Elegantly inscribed on pastedown to his wife's aunt, Mrs Daniel Kerr Servos: "Presented to Mrs D. Servos by her [ ] friend W. Kirby" (in pencil) - a signal association, given the focus of one of the author's later publications, 'The United Empire Loyalists of Canada Illustrated by Memorials of the Servos Family' (1884: Briggs).

Heinrich KIEPERT (1818 -1899).
Weimar (Germany): Verlag des Geograph. Instituts. Lithograph with original outline hand colour, dissected into 36 sections and mounted upon new linen (Very Good, a small, light stain near centre, minor toning, original colours still fresh and bright), 114 x 72 cm (45 x 28.5 inches). Rare - Heinrich Kiepert’s excellent wall map of the Eastern Europe, focussing on Poland, but embracing all the critical cultural and political borderlands from the Baltic in the line southwards down to the Danube, one of the finest maps of the region made during the mid-19th Century. This excellent work is one of the finest maps of Eastern Europe made during the mid-19th Century, having been compiled by the eminent cartographer Heinrich Kiepert. While it focusses on Poland, it embraces Europe’s most volatile cultural-political borderland regions. Centred upon Warsaw, the map takes in a vast territory, roughly framed by St. Petersburg, in the north-east; Pozna? and Vienna, in the west; Smolensk and Odessa, in the east; and down to the lower Danube and the adjacent tip of the Black Sea, in the south. It encompasses all or most of modern day Poland, the Baltic Countries, Belarus, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Moldova. The mapping is predicated upon the very best sources and shows the complex political situation in Eastern Europe as it stood during the mid-19th Century, following boundaries that were mostly established at the Congress of Vienna (1815). Essentially, the region was controlled by four competing powers: Prussia, Austria, Russia and the Ottoman Empire. While each jurisdiction is outline … [Click Below for Full Description]

Boston: American Tract Society, 1859. [8],[9]-158,[2]pp. including frontis and nine plates. 12mo. Brown cloth, decorated in blind, spine lettered in gilt. Binding worn at tips, with some spotting to lower board; scattered foxing and stains throughout (none affecting legibility), horizontal tear across 55/56 (with no loss), short marginal tear to sectional title and Preface for "Mark and Hasty...," tissue guard ragged, but an intact copy of a book inevitably subjected to abuse in young hands. One of at least two contemporary printing of this text, this imprint likely subsidiary to the printing under Carlton & Porter's New York imprint, explicitly dated 1859, in whose name copyright is claimed. Nine of the ten illustrations were lifted, without credit, from Hammatt Billings' drawings for Jewett's illustrated edition of UNCLE TOM'S CABIN. The introductory essay "A Few Words About American Slave Children" (signed "D.W.") is followed by "Little Lewis: The Story of a Slave Boy," by Julia Colman; "Mark and Hasty; or, Slave-Life in Missouri," and "Aunt Judy's Story: A Story from Real Life," both by Matilda G. Thompson. An unsigned epilogue of sorts,"Me Neber Gib It Up," is accompanied by the only illustration not lifted from UNCLE TOM'S CABIN. Some, if not all, of the Carlton & Porter copies bear the co-imprint of the Sunday-School Union. Scarce. OCLC 843450535.

Half-title. 363 wood-engravings in text after the drawings by H. V. Carter. Modern brown leather. A very good copy with characteristic light browning and intermittent marginal staining consistent with the book's use. Provenance: J. L. Mondloch (early 20th-century ink signature on half-title; possibly a physician from Montanta of that name, d. 1939). FIRST AMERICAN EDITION of Gray's landmark eponymous Anatomy, which remains the standard work on the subject some 160 years after the publication of the first edition. The short-lived Henry Gray won prizes for his essays on the optic nerves (1849) and on the spleen (1854), the latter of which contained important facts about its function that had remained undiscovered for seventy years. In 1855, Gray was approached by his colleague Henry Vandyke Carter (1831-1897) at St. George's Hospital Medical School in London with the idea of producing a comprehensive, inexpensive, and accessible text on anatomy for medical students. After the publication in London of the Anatomy in 1858, numerous errors were found in its dense and technical text. The publisher's notice in the American edition informs the reader that the book's "passage through the press has therefore been superintended by a competent professional" to ensure the improvement of the text. The American edition improved on the index of the British edition, and rearranged certain parts for easier comprehension. Ever evolving, Gray's Anatomy … [Click Below for Full Description]
