        The Evil Eye or The Black Spectre

      James Duffy, UK 1860 - 1st Edition 1860. The Evil Eye is based on Irish legend: that some people can cause harm merely by looking at something. It is assumed to be held harmless by the possessor unless selfish design or desire for vengeance brings it out. It was inspired by a neighbour named Case, who claimed an enemy had killed three of his cows merely by overlooking them. The Lindsays and the Goodwins are neighbors, and have lived for many years in mutual harmony and esteem. Unfortunately, things are about to change, due to a well-intentioned act of one family towards a member of the other. With twelve of the thirteen plates present. Bound in the original red cloth which has been recased with the original spine and endpapers retained. Book is good++ with quite bright but marked cloth. Edges rubbed in places. Paper label to spine. Contents good with a number of plates rubbed, creased and with nicks to edges. Light age toning to pages. Names to inner page. A very rare book. More images can be taken upon request. Ref Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Map of the United States, and Territories Together with Canada &c.

      S. Augustus Mitchell Jr. Pennsylvania. Copyright 1860. [ 1860]. - Map, handcolor, 13 1/4 x 21 1/4 inches including decorative border on sheet size 15 1/2 x 24 1/2, centrefold as issued. 1/2 inch split at bottom of centrefold (outside image area), light toning to edges, light scattered foxing (mainly in outer margins). Overall in exceptionally clean and bright condition. A quite beautiful and most extraordinary map showing huge territories in the Western United States just before the area was organised into a formation more familiar to the modern eye. Oregon, California and Texas have formations more or less unchanged from the present day; however the rest of the area west of the central states of Minnesota, Iowa etc is divided between a huge Nebraska, large and elongated Utah, New Mexico, Kansas and Indian Territory. Additionally, Arizona is marked (although not delineated with outline color) in the lower part of New Mexico, most likely noting the public sentiment for a territory of Arizona (which was formed in 1862). West Virginia has not yet seceded from Virginia. A very decorative floral border. Small inset map: Island of Newfoundland. Plate 9 from Mitchell's New General Atlas.

        Manuscript Journal of a month in Rome

      Roma, 1860. Written in very fine ink, circa 600/800 words per page. 8vo. Very Good. Written in very fine ink, circa 600/800 words per page. 8vo. The loose leaves bear no name, but it opens with Stocking reporting rounds to various offices for papers required to enter Rome, then under French control. Stocking's thoroughness here allowed his identification, as a check of U.S. Consular reports from Naples show just one visa application of any sort on February 14th - that of DeLafayette Stocking, for Rome.DeLafayette Stocking (1816 - 1872) was the second child of the Rev. Solon Stocking of Binghampton, New York. Despite the apparent level of seriousness displayed in the diary, DeLafayette came from a family prone to light-heartedness, at least in the choice of names; his father was one of eleven children with names each starting with the letter "S". In DeLafayette's generation, all nine children had names starting with "D". The family is perhaps more notable for including Captain Abner Stocking, a sea captain who fought at Bunker Hill and later sailed a Revolutionary privateer. He was DeLafayette's great grandfather. (See C. Stocking - "THE STOCKING ANCESTRY", 1903).Stocking is not unhappy to leave Naples, fed up in particular with over-eager carriage drivers, but he does look back from the deck of the steamer at the Neapolitan panorama with some pleasant memories. With gentle irony he describes the petty fees, the jostling of porters, the complexities of baggage clearance at Civita Vecchia, the passengers with ten small bundles each, suggesting the hassles of travel with good nature.Stocking's style throughout is candid. As he approaches Rome, the Tiber looks like "a good-sized muddy brook". Although the road from the rail terminal is "remarkably clean", the view it affords of the Imperial city is greatly disappointing.His chambers secured, Stocking first sets out to the Corso, where he finds a "magnificent" carnival scene - costumes, carriages, "battles" with comfits and bouquets, a riderless horse race, etc. He spends his first evening at an oil-lit theatre full of revellers.The diary includes comment on everyday things as well as monuments and works of art. Rome is lit with gas, he notes, though the shops and dwellings generally use oil and candles. Letters home may be prepaid or not, and so on. His colourful account of the market at the Piazza Navona, where he finds everything from gems to shoe strings on sale , is, typically, followed by a respectful, even awestruck, description of the Pantheon.In one entry, after a long walk up the Tiber, Stocking describes much that has disappeared; leather spread out on the banks by riverside tanners, the steamer dock, two grist mills ("the whole establishment being on boats anchored in the centre of the Tiber"), a rope-drawn ferry, and, farther down, "a frail suspension bridge".He has earlier described the thousands of French troops in the city, but Sunday, February 19th, intending to visit St. Peters he is distracted by a military display in the Piazza del Popolo; the French 4th Regiment, assembled for a ceremony of promotion. They stood "...two deep untill the arena was lined with troops in neat trim with their bleu coats, scarlet unmentionables and glittering bayonets...", followed by heavy artillery with "fine draft horses", the commandants escorted by fifty horsemen, "an imposing sight".Monday February 20th, he discovers the "principle shops" and speaks of their style of trading, "which involves the system of beating down to an enormous extent as every shopkeeper asks just half as much again as he expects to receive and if one is fool enough to give what is asked he has the satisfaction of laughing at your modesty and ignorance". He is very dismissive of the range and quality of goods on offer, "I have not seen a native indulge in the luxury of butter". After some wandering he takes dinner, for which he reserves some special scorn, "Restaurants are villainously poor in Rome...the only thing that can be got in perfection are the fried potatoes".Tuesday 21st, after a visit to Santa Maria Maggiore, he walks to San Lorenzo, finding its site lonely and abandoned. At three, he returns to the Corso and gives another full-blown description of the hectic carnival scene with detail on the running flower vendors and ragamuffins who snatch up bouquets thrown onto carriages to resell them. He culminates the account with the illuminations of Mardi Gras and the sport of blowing out others' tapers. He is exhilarated; "The air seemed alive with dancing stars, the houses realed with the flickering of lights...and this with the merry laughter and quick lively music of the bands...a glorious whole..." and so on.February 23rd, Stocking writes of the archaeological work underway in the Forum and the shiftlessness of the diggers, with detail on how it takes "one small shovel full of dirt about six minutes to reach the surface", and how the workers, too heavily-cloaked, rest their modest wheelbarrow loads every few feet - "a sight that was truly disgusting to one who has always been in the habit of witnessing the quick movements of the ever busy americans". He watches from a safe distance, "so as not to be in danger of receiving a portion of the many-legged families in which they all abound". Amid much other detail, he notes the Temple of Vest is to be found "in a dirty yard filled with carts and cattle".Friday, the 24th, Stocking's conscientious sightseeing on the Palatine Hill is enlivened by barrier-hopping to avoid paying a frank to each custodian to reach his destination, the Baths of Caracalla. The 25th, he writes entertainingly of a local waif who takes advantage of him in selling a succession of ancient coins. This day ends at the Scala Santa, with Stocking confessing astonishment "at the great faith exhibited and the humble demeanor of the penitents".The 26th, more explorations, "if I did not occasionally stumble into gardens I should not know how the gardening is done here". The 28th, Stocking walks out on the Via Appia, just ten years uncovered. At San Sebastian, the catacombs are still in the process of excavation. The 29th, tailors are "very poor and doing little work, the best proof being that they agreed to have me a dress coat made in a little less than two days", and he comments on their price-flexibility. Stocking also describes the hand-weaving of silk scarves, admiring the quality of work but noting how much faster steam-powered machines of New England would do the work.Stocking writes with keen self-observation of the loss of a hat and a picnic basket at the Gesu Church, a vexatious incident that ends happily. March 2nd, he endures a trip to a Roman dentist. The 4th, he writes on the fine horses of Rome, the curious custom of branding, the frequent lashing of even the best horses, and he comments on the Roman observance of Sunday. After half a page we finish mid-sentence and then pick-up mid-sentence on Wednesday the 7th.March 9th, with written permission, he visits the Vatican mosaic factory. "All artists are now at work upon the circular portraits of the popes to be placed in the San Paolo", he writes in an excellent account of the tedious work. There is also an evocative passage on the Capuchin church and its bones. March 10th, a French soldier halts him at point of bayonet as he tries to enter the Colosseum in the moonlight.Sunday March 11th, there is a chance to attend a papal audience but it fades into a senseless, two-hour wait "upon a dirty flight of steps".March 14th, Stocking writes a fascinating account of an unusual trip down the Tiber on a sixty ton steamer to Fiumicino. "There was but one passenger on board beside myself and friend and had I not brought provision I should have been most poorly off...for miles not a house could be seen and it was a sight far from enterprising...to see a river bordered by rich level lands and in possession of a few straggling cattle and sheep...", and so on, with a good description of the winding Tiber, its sand bars and mills, and the canal to the stone village of Porto with its massive castle.The colourful account includes the laborious, but cheap, upstream steamer ride back to Rome, slowed by the steamer's running against the current and towing two heavily laden vessels.Friday the 16th, Stocking finally sees the Pope at a special Lenten service, soldiers and Cardinals all around him. "As the procession entered the people fell back and...made a passage in the middle of the nave...All good Catholics fell upon their knees as though the waving of his hand was magic..."The 17th was a day of rambles, with Stocking concluding he has "done" the sights of Rome rather well. There is a good description of the dandies and crinolined ladies in the Via Condotti and of the tactics of a large beggar family "most fancifully dressed". The last entry, on the 18th, describes an oratorio at the Chiesa Nuova, "very like a good New England concert", deserving of the bravos, that despite the church setting, ring out from the all-male audience.Stocking is an energetic traveller, well-read and dedicated to sightseeing. Something of a loner, he appears to have found generous time to write a thoughtful, well-developed account of his experiences each day.His interests extend beyond art, architecture and history to include daily life - street scenes, people, customs - making his journal far more than a guide book summary; indeed, his attention to detail and his opinions pack these pages with interest.

      1860. In Three Volumes. New Edition. London: Sampson Low, Son, & Co., 1860. 16 pp Vol III ads dated Dec 1860. Original blind-stamped magenta cloth with gilt-decorated spines. First English Edition, later issue (with "New Edition" on all three title pages, and with December rather than August ads); this would next be followed by a one-volume edition in 1861.~This is Collins's famous mystery containing many elements of detective fiction (though without the involvement of an acknowledged "detective") -- which begins with a demented-appearing woman, dressed all in white, stopping a stagecoach on a dark road. The mysterious tale is told by several of the characters, in succession; as Collins points out in his Preface,~An experiment is attempted in this novel, which has not (so far as I know) been hitherto tried in fiction. The story of the book is told throughout by the characters of the book. They are all placed in different positions along the chain of events; and they all take the chain up in turn, and carry it on to the end.~THE WOMAN IN WHITE is also noteworthy in Victorian fiction for the fact that the character whose perseverance and resourcefulness uncovers the mystery is a woman; Count Fosco, the smooth, fat villain, is also very well conceived and drawn by Collins.~This set is still in the original magenta cloth, and is in very good-plus condition (minor wear at the spine ends, one gathering standing slightly proud, spines a little darkened as usual). The spine gilt remains quite bright, and the original pale-yellow endpapers remain clean and un-cracked (with the Bone & Son binder's label in Vol I). A copy of the first issue (without "New Edition" and with earlier ads), in this same original cloth binding, would easily cost eight times this price -- so this is an opportunity to acquire a much-less-expensive substitute.~This edition is not specifically cited in Parrish & Miller pp 29-40 or in Sadleir 605a; but see Wolff 1377a ("New Edition" but with November ads), Gasson pp 159-160, and also Sadleir's EXCURSIONS pp 140-141. Provenance: each volume's front endpaper bears the early signature "M. Balfour | Fernie" (see Fernie Castle, near St. Andrews, Scotland), plus the discreet oval bookplate of the renowned collector Douglas C. Ewing, whose magnificent book collection was sold at Christie's in April 1978. Housed in a handsome morocco-backed clamshell case by Sangorski & Sutcliffe.

        Cospicuo carteggio ottocentesco, inedito, di grande rilevanza risorgimentale, intercorso tra importanti personaggi, quali Giuseppe Garibaldi, Francesco Crispi, Giovanni Nicotera, Felletti, Benigno Paraviso, Stirling Begbie, e alcuni membri della famiglia Orlando. 1860-1883.

      1860. Significativo lotto di 18 missive inedite, così articolato: a) un biglietto autografo di Giuseppe Garibaldi (Nizza, 1807-1882), inviato da Roma in data 19 febbraio 1873, a mò di lettera di presentazione di tal Semenza; b) 5 lunghe lettere autografe di Francesco Crispi (Ribera, 1818-1901), quattro delle quali in busta affrancata e viaggiata, inviate fra il 1872 e il 1874 a Luigi Orlando, in cui si parla di argomenti personali, di questioni economiche e di investimenti e pagamenti bancari; c) 3 lettere e un biglietto autografi, datati 1875 e 1883, di pugno di Giovanni Nicotera (Sambiase, 1828-1894) a Luigi Orlando; d) Due lettere autografe di Benigno Paraviso inviate a Paolo Orlando in data 11 e 21 luglio 1860 (una affrancata e viaggiata); e) Cinque missive autografe in lingua francese di Thomas Sterling Begbie, inviate da Londra (4, Mansion House Place) tra il 19 giugno e il 27 luglio 1860; f) Una lettera autografa, priva di data, inviata da tal Felletti [uomo di fiducia degli Orlando a Londra], in cui parla di attrezzature idrauliche per bastimenti militari. Di particolare interesse le corrispondenze di Paraviso, mercante italiano attivo a Birmingham, di Begbie, un inglese assai influente a Londra e collegato alla "British Columbia" e di Felletti: in esse si parla diffusamente di cospicui trasferimenti di armi dall'Inghilterra all'Italia. Felletti è un uomo di fiducia di Orlando a Londra, mentre Paraviso e Begbie sono due mercanti o mediatori, incaricati di trovare le armi necessarie all'impresa di Garibaldi. Scrive Paraviso l'11 luglio 1860 a Paolo Orlando, che si trova a Londra: "La fabbrica nel Yorkshire alla quale ordinai i 14 cannoni per bastimento ora mi scrive che la sola specie che suole fare pel governo inglese sono di ferro fuso "Cast Iron" ..... Sempre Paraviso scrive il 21 luglio a Orlando, che nel frattempo si è trasferito a Liverpool: "I 1250 fucili Enfield, le pistole e i coltelli d'abbordaggio partiranno da qui [Birmingham] senza fallo la sera di mercoledi prossimo. Faccia grazia di significarmi se per i detti fucili debbo pur'anche provvedere i fulminanti e che quantitativo?....". Intrigante anche la corrispondenza tra Begbie e Orlando: in particolare nelle missive del 26 e 27 luglio 1860 Begbie cita G.G. [Giuseppe Garibaldi] e la Calabria, ed esprime "grand regret que le général est blessé à Milazzo". "Giuseppe Orlando di Colosa è considerato il capostipite della famiglia. D'origine siracusana ma palermitano d'adozione, possiedeva a Palermo un'officina meccanica a cui si rivolgevano gli agricoltori dell'isola per la costruzione di mulini e altre macchine agricole. Alla sua morte, avvenuta nel 1825, lascia la moglie Rosalia Castiglione e sei figli giovani; Luigi Orlando (1814-1896), Salvatore (1818 - 1881), Giuseppe (1820 - 1893), Paolo ( (1824 - 1891), Domenico (18.. - 1837) e Lucia (...). Nel 1834 il primogenito Luigi Orlando aderisce alla Giovine Italia, seguito poi dagli altri fratelli. Dopo un periodo in esilio a Malta e in seguito al fallimento dei primi moti insurrezionali siciliani Luigi torna in patria e s'impegna attivamente nell'officina di famiglia introducendo la forza del vapore nella costruzione dei mulini da grano, e riscuote successo con la fabbricazione delle prime molle per materassi. Il carattere imprenditoriale orientato all'innovazione della meccanica è spesso osteggiato dai Borboni, vedendo essi nel progresso un possibile nemico. Luigi è più volte costretto a lasciare la Sicilia. Nel 1847, trasferitisi a Roma, Luigi e Giuseppe dimostrano entusiasmo verso la rivoluzione e la costituzione della Repubblica romana, portando tra l'altro con sé un tricolore, dono degli insorti palermitani, e riportandolo poi nel capoluogo siciliano. Luigi, in Campidoglio, sale in cima alla statua equestre di Marco Aurelio issandovi la bandiera italiana. Alla notizia della momentanea sconfitta del potere Borbonico a Palermo e in tutta la Sicilia in seguito ai moti del 1848, Paolo e Luigi rientrano subito e sono incaricati di recarsi in Francia per comprare forniture di armi. Ma i francesi e gli inglesi, inizialmente parteggianti con la causa risorgimentale raffreddano presto il loro ardore, mandando a monte il progetto. Gli Orlando combattono a Catania ma nell'aprile 1849, dopo un anno ed un giorno d'indipendenza, il Parlamento accetta le condizioni dei Borboni che rientrano nella capitale. Gli Orlando assieme a molti altri patrioti sono costretti a fuggire a Genova, dove trovano le condizioni favorevoli per creare una florida attività cantieristica, siderurgica e meccanica. Gli Orlando nonostante l'impegno industriale continuano a sostenere la causa dell'unità italiana. Sono in ottimi rapporti sia con Mazzini (1805 - 1872) che con Cavour (1816 - 1861), che affida a Luigi la direzione dell'Ansaldo. Alla fine degli anni '50 i fratelli Orlando si riaffacciano alla politica come protagonisti diretti. Casa Orlando a Genova diventa centro di cospirazione. Rosolino Pilo (1810 - 1860) ne è un assiduo frequentatore con Francesco Crispi (1818 - 1901). È proprio Crispi a presentare Garibaldi agli Orlando. La loro comunione di vedute e d'azione è oggi ancora confermata dalla numerosa corrispondenza conservata dalla famiglia. Nel 1857 gli Orlando sostengono con mezzi e denaro l'impresa meridionale di Carlo Pisacane (1818 - 1857). Giuseppe partecipa attivamente alla spedizione dei Mille al comando delle macchine del "Lombardo" e del "Piemonte" (offerte dalla famiglia Rubattino), ma al momento dello sbarco Garibaldi ordina a Giuseppe di rimanere a bordo del battello. Ciò contribuirà ad impedire la cattura delle due imbarcazioni: Giuseppe, infatti, al sopraggiungere della flotta borbonica, aprì i boccaporti allagando ed affondando i due bastimenti. Questo gli valse la medaglia di bronzo al valor militare. Nella spedizione dei mille Luigi dona a Garibaldi una serie di cannoni fatti costruire appositamente nelle fonderie dell'Ansaldo.
