      1860. 1 S. 8vo. An einen "[h]ochgeehrte[n] Freund": "Mit der Absendung Deiner Bilder wäre es schneller gegangen, doch die Feyertage arbeiteten die Schreiner nicht und so erhielt ich die Kiste erst am Freitag. [Kunstvereinsdiener Bartholomäus] Rößler, welcher bei Dir seinen Dank machen läßt, schraubte das große Bild in meinem Atelier an, wurde aber schnell in den Kunstverein gerufen und schickte daher den Schreinergehilfen des Kunstvereins, der mit dem Einpacken gut umgehen kann. Zur Vorsorge befestigte ich 1 großen Bogen Papier über die Rahm am Deckel damit falls sich von der Verzierung etwas ablösen sollte, doch das große Bild geschützt ist, und so hoffe ich daß Du die Bilder gut erhalten haben wirst, zugeklebt habe ich die Kiste selbst. Beifolgend die Berechnung meiner Auslagen à fl. 2.58 Xr. - Mit meinem kranken Finger geht es noch nicht gut, derselbe ist noch etwas geschwollen und steif, was mich bei allen Geschäften sehr hindert, da ich ihn nicht biegen kann, der Beugungsnerv ist angewachsen - ob sich das wieder herstellen läßt weiß der liebe Gott - wir wollen das beste hoffen. Nun lebe wohl! Das schreiben geht gar schlecht [...] Abgeschickt wurde die Kiste Samstag d. 14. April Sign. I.C.K. no. 2 N69, 2 Oelgemälde p.p., Gewicht 1 Centner 11 Pfund". - Am Kopf Empfängernotiz: "beantwortet 5. April 1860 / 6 xr Porto". - Vereinzelte unbedeutende Randeinrisse, sonst wohlerhalten.

        THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A SEAMAN.

      SECOND EDITION. 2 Volumes. 8vo. (9 x 6 inches). Illustrated with four charts (3 folding) in volume 2, complete. A bright and clean set in the publishers decorative original Navy Blue cloth bindings. Boards with elaborate blind-stamped designs. Spines decorated in blind and ruled & lettered in gilt. Light brown coated endpapers. Neat previous owners armorial bookplates, and another family member's name plate below, on each of the front paste-down endpapers. Some light spotting to the fore-edges and an off white mark to the spine of one volume otherwise a superior set in the uncommon publishers original cloth bindings. Thomas Cochrane, Tenth Earl of Dundonald (1775 1860) was a Member of the British Parliament and noted naval commander who fought in the Napoleonic Wars. In 1814 he was imprisoned on a false charge of committing fraud at the London Stock Exchange and expelled from the Navy and Parliament. In 1832 he was pardoned and reinstated in the Royal Navy with the rank of Rear Admiral of the Blue, later rising to the rank of Admiral of the Red, and the honorary title of Rear-Admiral of the United Kingdom. The adventure writer Captain Marryatt served under him and his character inspired both C. S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower and Patrick O'Brian's Jack Aubrey, as well as turning up in the historical novels of G. A Henty and Bernard Cornwell.

        Albert von Le Coq. Die buddhistische Spätantike in Mittelasien. Reprint in 2 Bänden.

      - Dieser Klassiker der Orientalistik (religionsgeschichtlich, kunst- und sprachgeschichtlich, topographisch, archäologisch) ist wegen seines besonderen Inhalts, vor allem auch wegen genauer Beschreibungen längst verloren gegangener Kunstwerke heute noch ein Grundlagenwerk. Der renommierte Berliner Archäologe und Orientalist Albert von Le Coq (1860-1930) machte sich vor allem als Leiter der sog. Königlich-Preußischen Turfan-Expedition einen Namen, viele Male reiste er an die Seidenstrasse, Hunderte von Fresken Statuen und Fragmenten aus Höhlentempeln ließ er nach Berlin transportieren, zahlreiche von ihnen befinden sich heute im Museum für Asiatische Kunst in Berlin-Dahlem. Zwischen den Expeditionen arbeitete er minutiös an der Veröffentlichung seiner Forschungsergebnisse, die »buddhistische Spätantike« wurde sein wissenschaftliches Hauptwerk. Hier nun dieser Klassiker der Orientalistik in einer besonders schönen Reprint-Ausgabe in zwei Bänden: Band 1 versammelt sämtliche Abhandlungen der Ursprungsausgabe nebst den jeweiligen Bildtafeln in einem Band (Die Plastik, Die Manichaeischen Miniaturen, Die Wandmalereien, Neue Bildwerke, Neue Bildwerke II, Neue Bildwerke III), Band 2 ist der Wort-Bildatlas zu den Wandmalereien, im herrlichen Überformat. Beide Werke sind in schwarzes Leinen gebunden und mit einer goldgeprägten Titelillustration versehen. Die Faksimilierung und Ausstattung erfolgte auf hohem Niveau, der Zugang zu Text und Bild ist trotz des großen Formates leicht zu tätigen. Mit den zahlreichen farbigen und schwarz/weißen Bildtafeln, Plänen und Skizzen - eine wahre Fundgrube, nicht nur für professionell Interessierte und Bibliotheken, sondern gerade auch für den Leser zuhause. Wir haben das bibliophile Duo ist nun deutlich reduziert und freuen uns, es somit auch einer breiteren Interessentengruppe zugänglich zu machen. Band 1: 28 x 37 x 6,5 cm, 700 Seiten, zahlr. Bildtafeln, Leinen. Band 2: 38 x 54,5 cm, 56 Seiten, davon 20 Seiten Tafelteil, Leinen. Sonderaufbindung in 2 Bänden. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed ("V."). H[auteville] H[ouse, Guernsey], 9 Feb. [1860].

      1860. 8vo. 3 pp. In French, to Noel Parfait in Paris: "Your kind letter moves me. You are sad and happy at the same time, and it is quite normal. Homeland is sweet but exile is grand. One goes back home but one has to give up one's freedom. I understand the double shock your soul is experiencing. But it does not matter, dear Parfait. You are going to be happy, I have no doubt about that. You are taking into the darkness that prevails in France nowadays the serenity of a proud conscience and the satisfaction of having overcome the ordeal. You will feel respectable among all the despicable people. That is an austere kind of joy but it is indeed a joy. Thank you for all the details you gave me. I congratulate and envy Dumas, who was able to help you and ensure that you will have enough to live on in Paris. That, plus all the intelligence, style, grace, talent and virtue that you have! I assure you that you are going to do very well. I am sorry for H.M. the world's biggest scoundrel [H.M. stands for His Majesty, most likely Louis-Napoleon], but there is going to be one successful honest man in Paris. I already know seven or eight of them, maybe nine, and that will make ten with you. Our friend must be in Brussels at the moment. Tell him that I am going to answer his letter and ask him to send me, in the meantime, the issue of l'lndependance (by mail, since it costs two sous there and six francs here) in which my note on George Sand was printed. Also, I would like to have his address in Brussels [...]". In a postscript, Hugo as added, "Would you be so kind as to have the first of the two letters I am enclosing handed over to Bance, whose address I do not know, and mail the second one in Brussels? Sorry and many thanks". - In February 1860, Hugo was still living in exile on Guernsey, still writing about the darkness that prevails in France and the world's greatest scoundrel. It was an exile that had begun in December 1851 when a coup d'etat took place in France, which eventually resulted in the Second Empire under Napoleon III, and it did not end until the return of liberty and the reconstitution of the republic on 4 September 1870. However, his exile had recently become a voluntary gesture and an act of pride, a time to stand against Louis Napoleon. On 15 August 1859 (the birth of Napoleon I), Napoleon III offered an amnesty to exiles, which was accepted by some, but not Hugo. In a poem, "Ultima verba", he marked his decision, stating "No one will suppose that I personally can take any notice of the thing called an amnesty. In the present condition of France, protest - absolute, inflexible, eternal protest - that is my duty. True to the engagements I have made with my conscience, I shall share the exile of freedom to the end. When freedom returns, I shall return". The truth of the matter was that Hugo could not return during the reign of Napoleon III without inflicting a deep wound on his pride, and he could not resign himself to that. He was also well aware of the status and commercial value of banishment, even though the banishment was now self-imposed. The personal defiance of Napoleon III, the deliberate choice of martyrdom, gave Hugo a new heroic dimension. - With integral address leaf.

        PLAN DU COMBAT DU GRAND PORT, ISLE DE FRANCE 1810 [manuscript title].

      [N.p., but possibly Port Louis. Circa 1860?] - Manuscript map, 17 3/4 x 13 1/2 on drafting linen. Handcolored. Old folds. Minor wear and soiling. Near fine. Manuscript plan of the Battle of Grand Port on Mauritius Island during the Napoleonic Wars. The battle took place August 20-27, 1810 between French and British forces, and the French were victorious, maintaining their hold on Mauritius until December that year. The plan shows the harbor at Grand Port, on the southeastern shore of the island, with the French and British ships color coded to a key on the right side of the map. The four British ships are individually labeled, as are those of the French, and dotted lines show the movement of the vessels throughout the battle. The town of Mahebourg is shown in the lower right corner, and at the bottom of the map a legend indicates that many corpses were washed up along the beach in that area. This battle was a significant defeat for the British, arguably the worst defeat they suffered in the war, leaving the trade routes in the Indian Ocean open to French attack, although they returned to rout the French later in the year. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce.

First edition, in the original French, of a work on the Second Opium War during the years 1856-1860. The author, Armand Lucy, came to China in 1860, probably at the age of 23, as the interpreter to the French general Charles Cousin-Montauban (1796-1878). As an eyewitness, Lucy writes lively about the campaign in letters to his father, who published the letters he received in 1861. The book covers almost a year, starting in Ceylon in April 1860. Lucy gives a detailed account of several battles, with information about the strategies and the casualties. It also includes an account of the looting of the Summer Palace and of the Battle of Palikao, when the English and French took over Beijing, which played an important part in eventually defeating the Qing Empire. The text is illustrated with wood engraved views of Beijing. - Rare. Some foxing throughout the book. Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities. Overal a good copy. Cordier (Sinica) 2494f.

        The Quarterly Review. No. 215. July, 1860. [Containing Samuel Wilberforce's critique of Darwin's Origin of Species.]

      8vo. [2]pp contents, Errata Q.R. 215 for Darwin's Origin of Species' tipped-in, 302pp, pp 555-562 index, various publisher's inserts.This copy is exactly as issued by the publisher and contains the standard Quarterly Advertiser plus Catalogue of forthcoming [and new] books. Inserted at the conclusion is the index to Voluime 107 (issues 213 and 214), followed by a single advertising sheet on yellow paper for Dr. De Jongh's light-brown cod liver oil. Quarterly Literary Advertiser (bound in before the Review) page 8 includes advert for 'Origin', 5th thousand 14s. This is replicated in 'Mr Murray's list of forthcoming [and new] works', page 11. Individual volumes, and indeed runs, of the Q.R. are not difficult to obtain; unfortunately most demonstrate the predilictions of the Victorian bookbinder: wrappers removed, adverts stripped out, pamphlets/catalogues and similar ephemeral material discarded. Furthermore, when binding was undertaken it was customary to bind two issues in one volume since pagination was continuous for the half-year. Under the above circumstances it is understandable that only a small number of issues (as opposed to volumes) are available in the market place. A quick scan of the internet readily brings up half-a-dozen plus copies of Volume 108 in various states of leather binding, but nowhere is there a copy as issued by the publisher in original state. Without doubt the Wilberforce criticism is one of the most important scientific contributions to the Q.R.; all the more fascinating since the scathing attack was issued in one John Murray publication about another.

      1860. 8vo. X, [2],"428" [=430] pp. With wood engraved frontispiece, 8 wood engraved plates, and 111 wood engravings in text (8 single leaf). Publisher's original brown cloth, gold-blocked on front board and spine, marbled edges. First edition of a work on the Prussian expedition, also called the Eulenburg Expedition (1859-1862), to the Far East. The expedition was commissioned by Emperor Wilhelm I and led by Friedrich Eulenburg, and aimed at establishing economic and diplomatic relations with Japan, China and Siam. "With the opening of the Far East to foreign trade, Prussia sought to claim a stake in the region..." (Howgego). In July 1860 a large party arrived in Ceylon, one of the members being the physician Gustav Adolf Spiess (1802-1875). Spiess talks about his experiences and the events during his stay in Japan, China, Hong Kong, the Philippines and Siam, paying a lot of attention to the economic (dis)advantages of the different regions. They managed to ascertain several trade treaties, the one with China happened to be signed two days before the death of the emperor. Spiess gives an idea of the attitudes of the locals towards the Europeans and reversed, as he shows both. The text is illustrated with numerous wood engravings, showing views, costumes, ceremonies, etc. - Binding slightly worn and discoloured. Frontispiece detached from book block, some foxing throughout; a good copy. Cordier, Indosinica, col. 989; Cordier, Japonica, col. 558; Cordier, Sinica, col. 2522; Howgego, 1850-1940, E19.

        Recent Practice in the Locomotive Engine.

      Blackie and Son. Glasgow. 1860. - A publication issued in ten parts; original paper wrappers 15 x 11 inches, each part with two folding plates 15 x 20.5 inches save No. 10 which has a third plate, 15 x 10.5 inches; total 21 plates. Eighty-four pages of text, including a section "Descriptions of Large Engravings." The string binding of No. 10 perished; in addition to the last 12 pages of text this number contains the Title Page, Preface, Table of Contents, List of Plates, List of Wood Engravings, Index, and Instructions to the Binder. Light foxing to plates; text generally clean with light toning. The text on the paper wraps reads: "Recent Practice in the Locomotive Engine: (Being a Supplement to 'Railway Machinery,' Comprising the Latest English Improvements, and a Treatise on the Locomotive Engines of the United States. Illustrated by a Series of Plates and Numerous Engravings on Wood." The 20 folding plates depict locomotives belonging to railroads in England, Scotland, Egypt and the United States. The titles for the US equipment are: "Wood-Burning Passenger Locomotive by Wm. Mason & Co. Taunton, Mass. U.S."; "Passenger Locomotive by Danforth, Cook & Co., Paterson, New Jersey, for the Delaware, Lackawanna, & Western Railroad, U.S."; "American Locomotives--Cross Sections. Baltimore & Ohio Railway"; "Freight Engine, by M. W. Baldwin & Co. Philadelphia, U.S." A single page plate titled "Illustrations of American Locomotives as Carriages" depicts, through profiles rendered in outline, 36 American locomotives with the object of creating an historical overview that begins with a locomotive from 1837. A note in the final volume advises: "The plates are numbered in continuation of the Series in the Author's work on Railway Machinery," which explains numeration from 31 through 50 for the twenty folding plates. A scarce first edition, in paper wraps as issued; overall good clean condition with faults noted. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
