        Bound volume of coloured separately-issued prints, including the Australian kangaroo and emu.

      London: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, circa 1860. Oblong album containing 119 handcoloured plates, recent red cloth. Attractive collection of coloured zoological plates prepared for British schoolchildren during the mid-nineteenth century, including two Australian species (an emu and a kangaroo). The plates were issued by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, the publishing arm of the Anglican mission that during the early decades of the nineteenth century diversified its output from religious and theological texts to encompass a broad range of educational material, such as the present example. The plates were originally issued separately, priced at two pennies apiece when coloured, and the present bound volume represents a good portion of the entire series (of the 119 plates here, 53 are numbered). The explanatory text reflects a spirit of benevolent pedagogy. Take the description of the Emu for example: 'These birds are widely spread over the southern part of New Holland, and the neighbouring islands. They are met with at Port Philip and King George's Sound. Their food consists almost wholly of fruits, roots and herbage; they are quite harmless, except when attacked... It is sometimes coursed for sport; being pursued by well-trained dogs, which run up abreast and make a sudden spring at the creatures neck. This, however, is a cruel amusement. We have no right to seek our pleasure in a dumb creatures pain... ' Aside from the Australian fauna, the collection includes fish, cetaceans, reptiles and all manner of old world mammals. Significant closed tears affect five of the plates (Australian images unaffected), margins of the final seven plates chipped and worn.

        Political Debates between Hon. Abraham Lincoln and Hon. Stephen A. Douglas,

      Columbus: Follett, Foster and Company,, 1860. In the Celebrated Campaign of 1858, in Illinois; including the Preceding Speeches of Each, at Chicago, Springfield, etc.; also, the Two Great Speeches of Mr. Lincoln in Ohio, in 1859, as carefully prepared by the Reporters of Each Party, and Published at the Times of their Delivery. In 8s (232 ×156 mm). Publisher's brown blind-panelled cloth, title gilt to spine. Blue half morocco slipcase, chemise. "Correspondence" leaf including Lincoln's letter to the Republican State Central Committee of Ohio acceding to the publication of his speeches, fourth leaf blank and genuine; two Fletcher family letters tipped onto the front endpapers, later print of a photograph of Job Fletcher and his wife mounted on one of the folds of the chemise. Extremities worn with minor loss, a few stains, foxed, front inner hinge broken. First edition, first issue (sig. mark 2 at foot of p. 17). Presentation copy of the text of the debates that were Lincoln's springboard to fame, inscribed and signed by Lincoln, in pencil on the front free endpaper, to Job Fletcher, one of the "Long Nine", Lincoln's closest Illinois political coterie: "Capt. Job Fletcher from A. Lincoln." The Lincoln-Douglas debates are unquestionably the most famous, and most important, of such confrontations to have been staged in the history of American politics. The candidates' sharp exchanges helped to polarise sectional attitudes towards slavery, and - although Lincoln lost the 1858 Illinois Senate race of which they were a part - the debates catapulted Lincoln towards the 1860 presidential nomination, and into the White House. The text of the Lincoln-Douglas Debates was set from Lincoln's own scrapbook - now in the Library of Congress - of clippings of the candidates' remarks as reported by the Chicago Press & Tribune (for the Republican Lincoln), and by the Chicago Times (for the Democrat Douglas). When published as a presidential campaign tool in April 1860, the collected speeches became a best-seller, and by the time of Lincoln's official nomination, some 30,000 copies were in circulation. Lincoln received one hundred copies of the Debates from the publisher, a number of which he inscribed for supporters. David H. Leroy's recent study, Mr. Lincoln's Book: Publishing the Lincoln-Douglas Debates, identified 42 copies inscribed or signed by Lincoln. Virtually all of the recorded examples, like the present, are signed in pencil, which Lincoln evidently adopted because the cheap paper of the edition tended to spread, or "feather" ink. The recipient, Job Fletcher, was born in Rockbridge County, Virginia, and served in the War of 1812. He settled in Sangamon County, Illinois, in 1819 and worked as a farmer and teacher. Fletcher served two terms, 1834 to 1840, with the future President in the Illinois state legislature, where they belonged to the Sangamon contingent known as the "Long Nine" - so called because all of them were over 6 foot - responsible for the passing of an amendment by the General Assembly by which the state capital was moved from Vandalia to Springfield. Fletcher later served two terms in the Illinois State Senate, subsequently joining the fledgling Republican Party, and working for Lincoln's nomination and election. Bookplate of William H. Townsend, author and collector of Lincolniana inside the front flap of the chemise. A superb association copy of one of the most celebrated publications in American political history.

        Notes on Nursing: What it is, and what it is not

      Harrison, London 1860 - Format: Octavo: (8 5/16" x 5 7/16", 211mm x 139mm). B8 C-F8 [$2]. 40 leaves, pp. 1-5 6-79, [1]. Number of Volumes: [1860]. Bound in publisher’s pebbled brownish-charcoal-gray cloth over flexible cardboard. Triple blind-fillet border, with blind diagonal miters. Title and author gilt to front cover. Yellow end-papers with printed advertisements. All edges speckled red. Mild rubbing to peripheries, with wear to head- and tail-piece. Moderate damp-stain to very edge of the lower fore-corner of the front end-papers and first page, not affecting text. Small chip to lower edge of first free end-paper. Moderate damp-stain to very edge of the lower fore-corner of the rear end-papers. Small chip to lower edge of rear free end-paper. Text fresh, with no foxing. A nice copy, entirely unsophisticated. With bookplate of John Bell Sedgwick to front paste-down. Having come to prominence during the Crimean War, the "Lady with the Lamp" became a symbol of Victorian hygiene and uprightness. Nightingale published her Notes on Nursing in January 1860, and by March 15,000 copies had been sold. Nightingale makes claim for what is now well understood: the treatment of disease hardly begins and ends with medicine. Cleanliness, routine, access to fresh air and light (not at all given in 1860 London), a simple and suitable diet –these all contribute enormously to the well-being and ultimate success of a patient. It is not perhaps totally novel, but its popularity contributed to the rise of modern nursing, and may well have been responsible for saving lives beyond number.As with so many "technical" works, the bibliographic details of the Notes are perplexing. Skretkowicz in his survey of the issues, notes nearly infinite variety –such that hardly any two copies are identical. The end-papers of the present item have advertisements for 1860 (from Burke’s Peerage to Caldwell’s Comparative Grammar of the Dravidian or South-Indian Family of Languages), which indicates at least an early issue (Skretkowicz notes copies with advertisements as late as 1901). The present item corresponds to Skretkowicz’s category 5 of the end-papers (the second setting; Skretkowicz 27) and category 5 of the binding (having to do with the size of the blind border; Skretkowicz 34). Its text places it in his Group 19 (based on the exclusion of a comma in a note on p. 64), but the category 5 end-papers and category 5 bindings do not appear together in his list –thus the present item might be considered the exemplar of a novel class: Group 19d. Norman (see below) considers this the third issue. John Bell Sedgwick was Chairman of the Leavesden Asylum Committee (which would eventually establish the Metropolitan Asylum for Chronic Imbeciles in 1870) and an early member of the Metropolitan Asylums Board. Nightingale’s petitions of the Poor Law Board, which ultimately established asylums such as Leavesden, were instrumental in the establishment and running of such institutions.

        The Professor at the Breakfast Table, with The Story of Iris

      London: Sampson Low, Son & Co. 1860 - Blue Cloth. Book Condition: Good. First British Edition. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 286 pp, index, followed by a 2-page list of titles in preparation dated 1860, curiously followed by a 16-page catalogue published by Sampson Low, Son & Marston dated 1869. Presumably, though the leaves were printed in 1860, the book was bound some 9 years later. The rear pastedown has a small sticker bearing the wording, "Bound by W Bone & Son, Fleet St London". The covers are blind-stamped and the title and author's name are set in a gilt panel on the spine. The spine and the covers are worn, and the spine has darkened. The page edges are dusty. Both hinges are sound and the binding is firm and there are no loose pages. The title page is tanned, and there is foxing to the opposite page. Includes a letter in Oliver Wendell Holmes’ hand, dated 1887, to J Rogers Rees, author of “The Diversions of a Bookworm”, who also signed the book (the envelope address has been cut and pasted to the front pastedown and is in OWH’s hand). J Rogers Rees also inscribes the book to a Will Griffiths. With a letter by the Author and Inscribed by J Rogers Rees (Author of “The Diversions of a Bookworm”. Scarce. Wikipedia Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (March 8, 1841 – March 6, 1935) was an American jurist who served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1902 to 1932. Noted for his long service, his concise and pithy opinions and his deference to the decisions of elected legislatures, he is one of the most widely cited United States Supreme Court justices in history, particularly for his "clear and present danger" majority opinion in the 1919 case of Schenck v. United States, and is one of the most influential American common law judges through his outspoken judicial restraint philosophy. Holmes retired from the Court at the age of 90 years, 309 days, making him the oldest Justice in the Supreme Court's history. He also served as an Associate Justice and as Chief Justice on the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and was Weld Professor of Law at the Harvard Law School, of which he was an alumnus. Profoundly influenced by his experience fighting in the American Civil War, Holmes helped move American legal thinking away from formalism and towards legal realism, as summed up in his maxim: "The life of the law has not been logic; it has been experience." Holmes espoused a form of moral skepticism and opposed the doctrine of natural law, marking a significant shift in American jurisprudence. As he wrote in one of his most famous decisions, his dissent in Abrams v. United States (1919), he regarded the United States Constitution as "an experiment, as all life is an experiment" and believed that as a consequence "we should be eternally vigilant against attempts to check the expression of opinions that we loathe and believe to be fraught with death." During his tenure on the Supreme Court, to which he was appointed by President Theodore Roosevelt, he supported efforts for economic regulation and advocated broad freedom of speech under the First Amendment. These positions as well as his distinctive personality and writing style made him a popular figure, especially with American progressives, despite his deep cynicism and disagreement with their politics. His jurisprudence influenced much subsequent American legal thinking, including judicial consensus supporting New Deal regulatory law, pragmatism, critical legal studies, and law and economics. The Journal of Legal Studies has identified Holmes as one of the three most cited American legal scholars of the 20th century.

        An Extraordinary Confederate Photograph and Autograph Album of Dr. R. L. C. White, with his signature dated December 23, 1859 in the first volume

      Lebanon, Tennessee, 1859-1862 1860 - MORE THAN 100 SOUTHERN BOYS WHO WENT TO WAR. This is a unique photographic record of young men, from across the South, most of whom fought for the Confederacy. The collection comprises 125 rare salt prints made in 1859-1862. All but eight of the men represented in these albums went on to serve in the Confederate military, in a total of 88 units. Four fought for the Union, and four remained neutral. 13 were killed in action, 24 were wounded in action, and 24 became prisoners of war. The men fought in many of the war’s major engagements including Gettysburg, Chickamauga, Shiloh, Chancellorsville, and others. The album is heavily annotated with names, autographs, inscriptions, dates, places, fraternal memberships, and for some, eventual fates. R. L. C. White (1844-1909) entered Cumberland University at age 16 in 1859. Over the next three years, he assembled in these albums the photographic portraits and/or autographs of 139 fellow Cumberland University students and faculty. In 1862 White enlisted in Company K, 8th Tennessee Cavalry, the “Cedar Snags,” which served as escort to Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest and later Gen. John B. Hood. Many of those from White’s hometown of Lebanon organized themselves into a militia unit called the Lebanon Greys, later Company H, 7th Tenn., led by Col. Robert Halton. A number of the young men are in the militia uniform of the Lebanon Greys or Wilson Blues. Other classmates went home to join the soldiers of their own states including Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri, Georgia, and Virginia. White, who went on to become a physician and a newspaper editor, has annotated these volumes with the units and fates of a number of his Cumberland friends and acquaintances, one-quarter of whom became casualties. This collection was the source for the images in Floyd & Gibson, The Boys Who Went to War from Cumberland University: 1861-1865 (Gettysburg, 2001), which provides biographical sketches of the young men. Among the many noteworthy men and amazing stories represented in these volumes are: Lt. Gen. A. P. Stewart. A faculty member at Cumberland, Stewart was one of the leading figures in the Army of Tennessee and was Polk’s successor as corps commander during the battle for Atlanta. Stewart was with Johnston when he finally surrendered bringing the war to a close. This may be the earliest extant photograph of Stewart. Lt. Andrew Willis Gould. Gould famously considered himself dishonored by his commanding officer Nathan Bedford Forrest, who accused him of losing two captured Union guns. In the ensuing confrontation Gould shot Forrest and was fatally stabbed in return. Sgt. John Ferris. Ferris was nominated for the Confederate Roll of Honor for his actions at the battle of Murfreesboro. Lt. Elisha Dismukes. Severely wounded at Second Manassas, Dismukes recovered and was wounded again at Gettysburg, where he was captured. After being released in a prisoner exchange, he rejoined his unit yet again at Petersburg before finally surrendering there at war’s end. Salt print photographs, prized by collectors today, reached their greatest popularity in the late 1850s, when they were eclipsed by albumen photographs. Salt prints of Confederate soldiers are notoriously scarce, and a collection of this size is truly remarkable. This collection, representing the entire breadth of the Confederacy and set in the context of autograph inscriptions often reflecting the sitters’ youthful ideals and aspirations, is worthy of the finest collections of the history of the Civil War, the South, and photographic history. 117 leaves with 125 mounted oval salt prints (approx. 2 ½ x 3 ½ in.) and signatures and inscriptions of 139 fellow Cumberland University students and faculty. Two volumes. Original black and brown roan, gilt-stamped “Autographs,” all edges gilt. Bindings worn and shaken, one board detached. Some fading to photographs, occasional stains, but generally in good condition. Half morocco case. [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.

        Microscopic photography: its art and mystery. The principles of the art disclosed, and its practice clearly explained.

      London: Frederick J. Cox, (1860). First edition. 12mo., 30 pp. Bound With: Reichardt, Oscar and Carl Stürenburg. LEHRBUCH DER MIKROSKOPISCHEN PHOTOGRAPHIE, MIT RÃœKSICHT AUF NATURWISSENSCHAFLICHE FORSCHUNGEN. Leipzig: Quant & Händel, 1868. 12mo., xv, (ii) 79 pp., with 2 plates each with 2 mounted photographs. Bound in later black linen with a morocco spine label. The first title is lightly toned, the second is fine with the original photographic plates fine and bright with deep black tones, leading to the assumption that these were made with the collodio-chloride process of J. B. Obernetter which was first introduced in 1867. "Although Victorians occasionally used the the terms photomicrography and microphotography interchangeably, the photographic processes was different for each. Microphotography involved taking a photograph of a large object and reducing it to microscopic dimensions for viewing with the aid of a microscope. Photomicrography used the microscope to photograph a magnified image of microscopic-sized specimens, from these photographs enlarged prints or magic lantern slides could be prepared for both advancement of knowledge and entertainment." Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography, p. 1120. These two works are a perfect illustration of the above passage; the work by Nicholls provides a detailed methodology for making microscopic images, while the work by Reichardt and Stürenburg is a detailed methodology for making photographs with the microscope.

        Oak Lectern from St Augustine's Abbey Ramsgate.

      142cm high x 50cm wide. A Victorian Gothic Revival oak lectern. The reading slope over two cupboards, one with shelved interior, each with panelled doors, the side panels with Gothic trefoil inserts and pilasters with carved foliate capitals and tracery, with an integral solid platform. Lacking one shelf, a couple of capital leaves missing, but in very good condition. An attractive piece. From St. Augustine's Abbey in Ramsgate. This lectern was used in the Refectory of the Abbey for readings during meals. AWN Pugin built his famous house, known as The Grange, on the cliffs above Ramsgate in 1843-4. From 1845 he built, at his own expense and under his close supervision, the neighbouring church of St Augustine, to which were added its associated cloister, sacristy, school and priest's house. Pugin had acquired land to the north of the church on which he proposed to found a monastery, thus completing his ideal Catholic community, but did not live to see this ambition realised. On his death in 1852 control of the church passed to Thomas Grant, the first Roman Catholic Bishop of Southwark, who in 1856 entrusted it to a group of British Benedictine monks from the abbey of Subiaco in Italy. In 1860-61 a gift from the wealthy Catholic convert Alfred Luck, Pugin's friend and fellow Ramsgate resident, allowed permanent accommodation to be built for the monks. This comprised the present south and west ranges, designed by AWN's son Edward Welby Pugin. The monastery, which incorporated a school (demolished in 1973), was made a priory in 1881, and was raised to abbey status in 1896. In 1904 the present east wing was added, to a design by Edward's half-brother Peter Paul Pugin. In 1926 the Bergh Memorial Library was built to house the collection of books left by the bibliophile Abbot Bergh; the architect was Edward's nephew Charles Henry Purcell, who had himself been educated at the monastery school. Further additions, including the north range and the west gateway, were carried out in 1934-7 by Charles Canning Winmill. In 1976 a link block was added connecting the west range and the library. Edward Welby Pugin (1834-75) was the eldest son of the great Gothic Revival architect AWN Pugin. He inherited his father's burgeoning practice at the age of 18, and continued to develop it with tireless energy. The focus remained firmly on the Roman Catholic Church, but Edward developed a distinctive High Victorian style that combined increased elaboration of detail with a simplified approach to church planning. His major works in England include the churches and monastic buildings at Gorton in Manchester and Belmont in Herefordshire (churches both Grade II*). He lived at the Grange from 1862, and made a number of additions to both the house and the church. (English Heritage website). The Refectory from which this lectern came, was part of the west wing designed by Edward Welby Pugin. In 2011 the monastery decided to move to smaller premises and fixtures and fittings from the Abbey were sold, amongst some consternation, through auction.

        TRIBUNE TRACTS. - NO. 6. LIFE OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

      [New York:: Horace Greeley & Co.,. 1860]. 32pp, caption title [as issued], printed in double columns. Stitched. Mild toning, Very Good plus. This "earliest Scripps biography" [Monaghan] was first printed in Chicago in July 1860. Our New York imprint was "printed from plates cast from the same type forms" as the Chicago edition [Wessen]. It touches the major events of Lincoln's life and career, devoid of some of the more romantic mythology (e.g., Ms. Rutledge) but including the far-fetched notion that Lincoln deliberately lost the 1858 Senatorial race in order to enhance his presidential prospects. Howes calls it the "most authentic of Lincoln campaign biographies." Lincoln's short-lived career in Congress is reviewed, including his opposition to the Mexican War and his support of the Wilmot Proviso. A 'must' for the Lincoln or Presidential campaign collection. Howes S247a aa. Monaghan 79. Miles 418a. Wessen 12. LCP 9235.

Yates, running for Governor of Illinois on the Republican ticket, defends the Republican platform and answers the question, "Who is Abraham Lincoln?" "Honest Old Abe" is "a man whom you know personally, know to be an honest man, an incorruptible patriot." Indeed, "Old Abe is a plain sort of a man, about six feet four inches in his boots, and every inch of him MAN." With several anecdotes about Lincoln's early life, and recollections about "the first time I ever saw Old Abe." This Speech is quite scarce. FIRST EDITION. Monaghan 93.

        SPEECH OF HON. O.H. BROWNING, DELIVERED AT THE REPUBLICAN MASS-MEETING, SPRINGFIELD, ILL., AUGUST 8TH, 1860.

      Quincy:: Whig and Republican Steam Power Press,. 1860. 16pp, folded, untrimmed and partly uncut, outer two leaves loose. Else Near Fine. Calling himself an "old line Clay Whig," Browning had great influence among his colleagues. Lincoln had picked him as an at- large member of the Illinois delegation to the 1860 Chicago Republican Convention [David Donald, LINCOLN, pages 245-246]. In this campaign speech Browning denounces slavery and demonstrates that the paradigmatic Whig, Henry Clay, would have agreed with the Republican platform. Clay would surely have cast his lot with Lincoln, says Browning. "Mr. Lincoln had just been upon the stand from which Mr. Browning spoke," says a footnote to his Speech. FIRST EDITION. LCP 1744.

        SALIENT POINTS OF THE CAMPAIGN. NO. 1. A TRACT ISSUED BY THE ILL. REPUBLICAN STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE. CONTENTS..

      [Springfield?:. 1860]. Caption title, as issued. Disbound, Very Good. This Illinois campaign document leads with the letter of Edward Bates, the old Missouri Know-Nothing, to Orville Browning, endorsing the Lincoln-Hamlin ticket, denouncing the "wanton and reckless" Democrats, asserting that "the national government has sovereign power over the Territories, and that it would be impolitic and unwise to use that power for the propagation of negro slavery." Lincoln is "a sound, safe, national man. He could not be sectional if he tried." Monaghan 27 records a separate printing of Bates's endorsement. Our document also prints the Republican, Douglas Democrat, and Breckinridge Democrat platforms; examines the pro-slavery record of Douglas's running mate, Herschel Johnson of Georgia; chronicles the disastrous results of Douglas's Squatter Sovereignty policy and his failed position on "The Everlasting Nigger Question;" and, finally, prints Lincoln's and Hamlin's letters of acceptance.

        Amsterdam, aandelen beurs van Zocher, ca. 1860.

      "Gezicht op de Beurs van Amsterdam". Lithografie in kleur vervaardigd ca. 1860 door Peter Hanrath te Roermond.Op de voorgrond rechts de Nieuwe Beurs, naar ontwerp van architect Jan David Zocher. Dit neoclassicistische beursgebouw verving het oude verzakte beursgebouw van Hendrick de Keyser in 1845.Het gebouw werd niet neergezet op de plaats van de oude beurs, op het Rokin (daar waar tegenwoordig de Industrieele Groote Club huisvest), maar aan de noordzijde van de Dam, op het Damrak, ter plaatse van de Vismarkt. De vismarkt was al verhuisd naar de noordzijde van de Nieuwmarkt.Het ontwerp viel niet bij iedereen in de smaak, maar er waren ook praktische bezwaren. Vanwege het open binnenhof en omdat de nieuwe beurs, in tegenstelling tot die van De Keyser, naar het zuidwesten gericht was, had men, vooral 's winters, vaak last van ijzige tocht. Spottend sprak men dan ook van 'het togtige wonder van Amsterdam".Nog geen drie drie jaar na de opening, werd het binnenhof overdekt. Maar de kritiek bleef niet uit. De breedte van het Damrak op de hoek van de Dam bedroeg slechts 15 meter. Toen de beurs gebouwd werd was dit geen probleem, maar toen een paardentramlijn langs het Damrak werd aangelegd naar het Centraal Station, ging dat maar net. Bovendien nam de welvaart na omstreeks 1870 steeds meer toe, waardoor de beurs nu ook te klein was geworden. Het pand werd uiteindelijk gesloopt in 1903 toen Beurs van Berlage haar deuren opende. Thans staat op deze plek de Bijenkorf.Prijs: € 475,- .
