        Political Debates between Hon. Abraham Lincoln and Hon. Stephen A. Douglas, In the Celebrated Campaign of 1858, in Illinois.

      Columbus: Follett, Foster and Company, 1860. First edition, first issue, with no advertisements, no rule above the publisher's imprint on the copyright page, and with numeral 2 at the bottom of page 17. Octavo, original publisher's brown cloth. Some intermittent foxing, otherwise fresh with some rubbing to the cloth. he began collecting a scrapbook of his best speeches, particularly those from the just-concluded campaign against Douglas, for possible inclusion in a book. Assiduously pasting newspaper accounts of the debates into the scrapbook, Lincoln cast about for a publisher. Initial efforts failed, mainly because Lincoln wanted the book printed in Springfield, which had no local publishing or printing facilities. Eventually, however, the Columbus, Ohio, firm of Follett, Foster & Company showed interest, and he began preparing the first edition... Somewhat surprisingly for an attorney, Lincoln did not seek Douglas' permission to publish a book of their combined speeches, although Douglas was later given the last-minute opportunity--he declined--to make corrections to his own remarks" (Morris, 121).

Original brown cloth over thin board bound-in later tan buckrum, (lacking yellow wrappers), 40pp. Full page diagram of a Base Ball field and position of the fielders (p.4). Light waterstaining in upper and lower corners and outer margin, old marginal trim to title page, otherwise a beautiful copy.THE VERY RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST ANNUAL BASEBALL GUIDE. BY THE FATHER OF BASEBAL, HENRY CHADWICK—HIS PERSONAL COPY.SIGNED "HENRY CHADWICK / CLIPPER OFFICE" ON FRONT FLYLEAF. With letter of authenticity, dated October 14, 1925, by John T. Doyle, President, American Sports Publishing Company, publisher of Spalding sport guides, who was a friend and colleague of Chadwick. In 1858 Chadwick became the first baseball editor of a newspaper, which he held at the New York Clipper. Hence, the inscription "Clipper Office" accompanying his signature.RULES OF THE GAME WHICH APPEAR IN THIS 1860 GUIDE:• The ball must be pitched, not jerked or thrown to the bat.• The striker is out after swinging and missing three balls if the behind catches the third strike on the fly or first bounce.• If three balls are struck at, and missed, and the last one is not caught, either flying or upon the first bound, it shall be considered fair, and the striker must attempt to make his run.• The striker is out if a fair ball is struck, and the ball is caught either without having touched the ground, or upon the first bound.• If an adversary stops a ball with his hat or cap, or takes it from the hands of a party not engaged in the game, no player can be put out unless the ball shall first have settled in the hands of the pitcher.• Clubs may adopt such rules respecting balls knocked beyond or outside of bounds of the field, as circumstances of the ground may demand; and these rules shall govern all matches played upon the ground, provided that they are distinctly made known to every player and umpire, previous to the commencement of the game.• The player is out if the ball is in the hands of a base tender before the runner steps on the base.• If two ballists are already out, no player running home at the time the ball is struck can make ace if the striker is put out.• The hurler must deliver the ball as near as possible over the center of home for the striker.• Foul balls do not count as strikes.• Any ball first touching the ground or touched by a player within the base lines is fair, even if it goes foul thereafter.• An ace shall be tallied when a base runner steps on the home base.• No person engaged in a match, either as umpire, scorer or player shall be, either directly or indirectly, interested in any bet upon the game.HISTORY OF BEADLE’S GUIDES: Beadle’s is the earliest set of baseball guides, published annually from 1860 to 1881. Chadwick was its editor. It ceased publication in 1881 when Chadwick became the editor of the Spalding Guide. The annual circulation was said to number 50,000 copies! The 1860 Beadle guide literally transformed baseball into a spectator sport as it was the first guide book published for and available to the general public (preceded only by an 1859 baseball player’s pocket companion for the players) and virtually launched the Baseball Press. WHO WAS HENRY CHADWICK: An avid promoter of Baseball throughout his life, Henry Chadwick (1824–1908) became the game's chief journalistic voice and its moral conscience during the game's early years. He coined the phrase "in the best interests of baseball" as he attacked drinking among players, gambling, and the "throwing" of games (He actually even opposed playing games on Sunday!). Chadwick arrived in America in 1837 and clearly saw baseball as an evolution of the "rounders" ga [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        CLARK & TACKABURYS' NEW TOPOGRAPHICAL MAP OF THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT. COMPILED FROM NEW AND ACCURATE SURVEYS OF EACH COUNTY, AND THE UNITED STATES TRIGONOMETRICAL SURVEYS OF LONG ISLAND SOUND.

      Philadelphia: Clark & Tackabury, 1860. - Wall map, 53 x 68 1/2 inches, in full period hand-color. Expertly repaired, backed with modern linen, trimmed in blue cloth, on contemporary rollers. In very nice condition. A lovely wall map of the state of Connecticut, based on very current surveys and first issued in 1859. Richard Clark published a number of Connecticut maps in the 1850s, and no doubt drew on that knowledge in producing this accomplished state map. Nine inset maps provide detailed plans of the cities of Middletown, Waterbury, Stamford, Norwalk, New London, Bridgeport, Hartford, Norwich, and New Haven. A table gives population statistics for Connecticut's eight counties, and for the major towns and cities in each county. Grist mills and sawmills are shown, as are railroads and common roads. The mapping of the Connecticut coastline is especially fine, giving depths for the entire stretch of Long Island Sound, and showing the several islands lying off the coast. Not in Phillips MAPS.

Joachim was a highly distinguished Austro-Hungarian violinist, composer, conductor, and teacher, associated with many important contemporary composers and musicians. "[His] paramount importance as an interpreter in the second half of the 19th century stems partly from his direct contact with many leading composers of the day. Like Clara Schumann among pianists, he represented a new species of 'ascetic' violinist, subordinating himself to the composer rather than glorying in his virtuoso technique." fol. 14v: DAVÏDOV, Karl 1838-1889 Am Springbrunnen [op. 20 no. 2]. 5 measures for violoncello.

In G-flat major, 3/4 time. Inscribed "Alla Sigra Torricelli ricordo del [illegible] Roma 20 Marzo 90 F Marchetti." An Italian composer, Marchetti's "operas reflect an assimilation of the Verdian models (the subjects based on strong psychological and ethical oppositions, the complex structure of scenes and arias) but without Verdi's energetic sense of drama. In spite of his conservative style, his skill in creating atmosphere and local colour and his tendencies to the elegiac and melodic over-sweetness mark a point of transition on the line that was to lead to Catalani and the verismo." Andrea Lanza in Grove Music Online. fol. 19v: TUA, Teresina 1866-1956 [A musical joke: G clef on a staff, followed by a wavy line and a question mark.] Inscribed "Essere o non essere, ecco il problema!

Dated "Londra 26 Maggio 1891." An important Italian cellist and composer, Piatti was greatly encouraged by Liszt. "As a result of his distinguished playing and his teaching, Piatti had a profound influence on cello history, especially in England. Playing in the old style, without an endpin, he is said to have had a spectacularly agile technique, superb bow control, perfect intonation and a bright, singing, flexible tone, his interpretations being invariably free from the sentimentality into which so many of his contemporaries were lured."

        Abraham Lincoln

      Boston: Little, Brown & Co. FIRST EDITION. Original Wrappers. Fine. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE: ONE OF ONLY 50 COPIES PRINTED of John Nicolay's separately published biography of Abraham Lincoln prepared for the Ninth Edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica. Precedes Nicolay and Hay's monumental biography of Lincoln by eight years. From the collection of Henry W. Poor, noted American financier and founder of what would become Standard and Poor's. "Nicolay became active in Republican party politics and soon became a political lieutenant for one of the capital's leading citizens, Abraham Lincoln. When Lincoln was nominated by the Republican party for the presidency in 1860, he named Nicolay his private secretary... Nicolay [along with John Hay] went to Washington with Lincoln in 1861. The two men shared a room at the White House and had an exceptionally close relationship with Lincoln... "They served Lincoln for four years, performing a wide variety of political and personal duties and remaining close friends throughout, a working friendship that became the foundation for an important literary collaboration in later years. After Lincoln won reelection in 1864, Nicolay served as American consul in Paris, remaining in that post until 1869. In 1872 Nicolay became marshal of the U.S. Supreme Court, a position he held until 1887. During much of his time as marshal, Nicolay worked with Hay on a ten-volume biography entitled Abraham Lincoln: A History, eventually published in 1890; it was this biography that brought them lasting fame" (American National Biography). The biography of Lincoln prepared by Nicolay for the Encyclopedia Britannica reflects the unprecedented access Nicolay had (through Lincoln's son) to the president's papers and preceded the completed 10-volume work by eight years. According to Lincoln's bibliographer Monaghan, it was printed as a separate publication in Boston in a scant edition of 50 copies "for copyright purposes." Monaghan 699. Provenance: From the collection of Henry W. Poor, with his morocco bookplate on the inside of the front wrapper. Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1882. Thin octavo (21 text pages), original printed wrappers; custom morocco box. A few spots, split at top of front wrapper (everything holding secure), impression of Poor's bookplate evident on front cover and offset to title. RARE.

        Photograph of Agnes Weld with a younger child

      1860 - We offer a fine old photograph, circa 1860 of Agnes Weld, niece of Mrs Alfred Tennyson who was photographed by Julia Margaret Cameron and Charles L. Dodgson. The image measures eleven and a quarter inches by nine inches and is mounted on stiff card. The photograph is not signed but has an inscription on the verso: 'Study of Miss Agnes Weld niece of Mrs Alfred Tennyson done by Mrs Cameron who prepared her own plates'. The card mount has a jagged, vertical tear half way along its top edge down to the edge of the photograph; the image is not torn but has a slight crease in that place, continuing a little way down. There is another tear on the right side of the mount which does not reach into the image. Otherwise the photograph itself is in nice clear condition for its age.

        The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication

      London: John Murray. FIRST EDITION. Original Cloth. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE IN ORIGINAL CLOTH of Darwin's sequel to the Origin of Species, including his first use of the term "survival of the fittest". "The Variation was a full statement of the facts on which the theories of the Origin were based... "After the Origin's publication Darwin embarked on two broad lines of research: botanical experiments, and studies of variation, sexual selection, and emotional expressions in humans and mammals. In 1860 he began recycling the early, as yet unpublished, chapters of 'Natural selection' and studying the osteology of domestic pigeons, ducks, and geese for a book on how breeders and horticulturists modify species. This was The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication (1868)... Its two volumes were intended to provide overwhelming evidence for the ubiquity of variation, although they would also incidentally answer Lyell and Gray, who maintained that variations had not occurred purely by chance but were providentially directed. Darwin showed that breeders indeed selected from a vast array of minute random variations. He gave numerous instances of the causes of variability, including the direct effect of the conditions of life, reversion, the effects of use and disuse, saltation, prepotency, and correlated growth. "The Variation also addressed a key criticism of the Origin of Species: that it lacked an adequate understanding of inheritance. Darwin's 'provisional hypothesis of pangenesis' was constructed to explain how heritable traits were passed from parents to offspring. He supposed that each part of a parent organism throws off minute particles, or 'gemmules', which circulate in the body and collect in the sexual organs to be transmitted in reproduction. Because gemmules are received from two parents, the offspring develop to resemble them both more or less. 'The child, strictly speaking, does not grow into the man, but includes germs which slowly and successively become developed and form the man' (Darwin, Variation). "The term 'survival of the fittest' (borrowed at Wallace's insistence from Herbert Spencer's 1866 Principles of Biology) first appeared in the Variation... It was a partial substitute for Darwin's more anthropomorphic 'natural selection', which many critics took to imply the existence of a 'selector'. Mistaking Darwin's metaphor, they concluded that intelligence lay as much behind nature's selecting as behind a pigeon fancier's. Nevertheless Darwin defended his use of 'natural selection' while conceding that he had personified it too much" (Dictionary of National Biography).
