        A Tale of Two Cities.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1860. First edition, second issue. Octavo, original red cloth. From the library of stockbroker Henry William Poor, with his bookplates. The firm that he and his father established in 1868, H. V. & H. W. Poor, was a predecessor to the business that eventually became Standard & Poor's. Octavo, 19th-century full morocco. Gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front and rear panels, inner dentelles, topedge gilt, marbled endpapers. A very good copy with the joints and corners rubbed. With 16 plates by H.K. Browne. A nice example with provenance. The most famous and possibly the most popular of Dickens's novels, A Tale of Two Cities shows a master of dramatic narrative extracting gold from the ore of history. If the bloody tableau of the French Revolution were not in itself sufficient for a dozen novels, Dickens added to it a professional resurrectionist, an authentic ogress, and an antihero as convincingly flawed as any in modern literature. Here, too, are all of Dickens's recurring themes -- imprisonment, injustice, and cataclysmic violence, resurrection and the renunciation that makes renewal possible.

        Chemin de fer du Nord. Ligne de Paris à Compiègne par Chantilly. Petites vues photographiques

      - oblong, (1)f de titre, (1)f Sans lieu, ni date [c.1860], in-4, oblong, (1)f de titre, (1)f d'index, 75 photographies (n°1 à 74 + 1bis, 11bis, 66bis, 69bis), demi-chagrin vert, dos à nerfs orné muet, titre imprimé sur le premier plat, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque), Une carte illustrée de 7 épreuves miniatures et 74 petites photographies. Tirage à 25 exemplaires par ordre de M. le Baron James de Rothschild (1792-1868). Exemplaire n°4 offert à Monsieur P. Hottinguer, un des membres de la grande famille de banquiers, originaire de Zurich. Il devrait s'agir de Philippe Rodolphe Hottinguer (1806 à Paris - 1878 à Paris), son fils Paul (1855-1930), étant trop jeune à l’époque. Joint: 2 cyanotypes sur papier calque, représentant l'hippodrome et le viaduc de Chantilly (15,5 x 20cm et 15 x 21,5cm). Ces clichés, dans le style de Baldus, étaient tirés sur un papier ordinaire car utilisés comme outil de travail. La compagnie des chemins de fer du Nord a été créée en 1845 par le banquier James de Rothschild (1792-1868), Jean-Henri Hottinguer et Edward Blount, afin d’assurer le trafic vers la région Nord, et en particulier vers les régions minières. La première ligne joignant Paris à Douai et Lille (1846) fut vite étendue vers Valenciennes, Gand, Amiens et Boulogne (1847). La compagnie des chemins de fer du Nord absorba peu à peu les autres compagnies de la région, et le réseau fut rapidement l’un des plus denses et des plus actifs en France. La ligne Paris-Compiègne via Chantilly fut mise en service en 1859. Jean Henri Hottinguer (1803-1866), frère de Philippe Rodolphe, fut Régent de la Banque de France, puis directeur de la banque familiale. Il participa à l'aventure du chemin de fer, et sa famille fut très présente dans les conseils d'administration des différentes compagnies. En 1830, les Hottinguer reçurent l’autorisation de construire l'une des premières lignes de chemin de fer, Epinal-Canal de Bourgogne. Ils participèrent aussi au Paris-Saint-Germain des Pereire, et se lancèrent ensuite dans la Compagnie du Centre. Ils furent à l'origine, avec les Rothschild, de la Compagnie du Nord, du Paris-Orléans, du Paris-Rouen et du Paris-Lyon. Notre exemplaire a donc été offert par le Baron Rothschild à l’un de ses associés dans l’entreprise de la construction du réseau ferré nord. La Bibliothèque Nationale possède l’exemplaire n°2 de cet ouvrage, offert à M. G. Dalon, et provenant de la collection Georges Sirot (cote RES VE-1427-8). Elle possède aussi l’exemplaire n°2 des « Chemins de fer du Nord. Ligne Paris à Boulogne » (1855), offert également à M. G. Dalon, provenant de la même collection et comportant 50 photographies (cote RES VE-1368-1). Ces deux exemplaires sont répertoriés par Bernard Marbot, dans sa « Liste des albums de la collection Sirot » (Paris, 1983). Si Marbot attribue l’album de la ligne Paris-Boulogne à Baldus, en revanche, il laisse celui de la ligne de Paris-Compiègne anonyme. Cependant, la notice actuelle de la BN attribue aussi ce dernier album à Baldus. En consultant l’exemplaire de la ligne Paris-Boulogne, on constate que sept photographies sont effectivement signées par Baldus ; tandis qu’aucune photographie n’est signée dans l’exemplaire de la ligne Paris-Compiègne. Cette attribution a-t-elle été faite par extension ? Par ailleurs, la signature de l’une des photographies de la ligne Paris-Boulogne est rognée (n°21 « Vue de Saint Leu l’Esserent »), ce qui laisse supposer que d’autres signatures ont pu disparaître. Et, en effet, la BNF attribue 36 épreuves de cet album à Édouard Baldus, dans son catalogue d’exposition « Des photographes pour l’Empereur » (sous la direction de Sylvie Aubenas, 2004). R. Malcom Daniel, dans son ouvrage « The photographic Railway albums of Edouard Baldus » (2002), examine les différents albums du Chemin de fer du Nord qui ont été attribués à Baldus. Il en distingue six dont trois comportent de grandes photographies et trois autres de petits clichés. A cette distinction s’ajoute cell [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Map of the United Counties of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington, Canada West from actual Surveys under the Direction of H. F. Walling

      Kingston, Canada West: Putnam & Walling Publishers, 1860. Lithographed map, full original hand-colouring, folding in 36 sections, backed onto linen at a contemporary date, edged with green silk ribbon. A fine large-scale map of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Counties in Canada, including a large view of the city of Kingston. Ristow devotes an entire chapter to the work of Henry Walling in American Maps and Mapmakers (pp. 327-338.), noting that Walling, along with Robert Pearsall Smith, "unquestionably made the greatest contributions to town and county mapping" during the period between 1850 and 1880: Ristow's remarks concentrate on Walling's contribution to the mapping of the United States, but are equally applicable to his work in Canada. This map of the counties in Canada West was the most accurate and detailed map of the area that had yet been assembled. The map includes a large inset and detailed town plan of Kingston (with an adjacent business directory), together with insets of 28 other towns in the area. There is also a table of distances. Eight uncoloured vignettes of important county buildings are also included and there are business directories for at least five of the other towns depicted. The map is here presented as a case map, sectioned and linen-backed, rather than in wall map form, thus preserving the beauty of the original colouring, and without the varnish that tends to be such an unwelcome feature of wall maps of the period. Cf. Ristow American Maps and Mapmakers pp.327-338; not in Rumsey.

First edition in English, the most important work of the German Protestant missionary and explorer Johann Ludwig Krapf (1810-1881), who arrived in Ethiopia in 1837 before moving on to Cairo in 1842. "For the next eleven years, 1844-55, Krapf worked in the coastal areas of modern Kenya, first in Mombasa. and then at Rabai, on a ridge a few kilometres inland. In November 1848 Krapf himself set out with eleven bearers on an inland journey to visit the Kamba, traversing the almost waterless thorn scrub that stretches some three hundred kilometres inland from the coast behind Rabai. After twenty-one days march he reached the edge of Ukambani, where the chief, Kivoi, said he had often seen a mountain called Kegnia (Kenya) which was covered with a cold, white substance. When he invited Krapf to a nearby hilltop the missionary could see in the distance both mounts Kilimanjaro and Kenya. The expedition was beset by illness and a mutiny of the porters, and Krapf returned to the coast. Krapf's second journey to Ukambani followed in April 1851. Kivoi agreed to build a mission station on his territory but disaster struck when Kivoi and fifty followers accompanied the missionary to the agreed site for the headquarters. Kivoi's enemies ambushed him in the forest, killed him and put his men to flight. Krapf, left alone and destitute, wandered through the forest, shunned by the Kamba, and eventually limped back to the coast. In 1852 Krapf and another Basel-trained missionary, Johann Erhardt, sailed down the East African coast as far as Kilwa, in the process providing the first new information about the coast since the British coastal survey of 1822-24" (Howgego).

        Britton & Rey's Map of the State of California

      San Francisco: Lithographed by Britton & Rey, 1860. Lithographed map. Linen-backed. Extremely rare map of California. George H. Goddard came to California in 1850. In 1855, he surveyed a part of the boundary between California and Utah Territory (now Nevada). He later surveyed for the Western Pacific Railroad and for John Charles Fremont. He also surveyed most of the important passes Sierra Nevada Mountains. Mount Goddard still bears the name of this important early surveyor. In 1855, Goddard compiled a manuscript map of California on a scale of two miles to the inch. The map was a remarkable improvement on the best available maps, so much so that Marlette, the State Surveyor General petitioned the California legislature to purchase Goddard's map, stating that nowhere else could so complete and extensive a map be obtained. After the legislature rejected the proposal, Goddard submitted a version of the manuscript to Britton & Rey, who lithographed and published it for the first time in 1857. Among its many distinctions, it was the first map to accurately locate Lake Tahoe (here Lake Bigler), derived from Goddard's own surveys in the Sierra Nevada. The map shows towns and settlements, trails, wagon roads, and county boundaries. Relief is indicated by hachures; numerous spot elevations are given; and physical features are named. The scale is 1 inch to 24 miles. Coverage includes the western half of Utah Territory and a northwestern corner of New Mexico Territory--- the area comprising the future State of Nevada. The wealth of information which now appears throughout California in the present 1860 edition (stated on the map as the third edition) graphically discloses the extent to which large portions of this vast and hitherto empty land had been peopled. Gold had swiftly done its work. The Goddard map is a fitting monument to the frenzied activity and achievements of the gold seekers, and with it the purely Gold Rush phase of California cartography comes to an end. No example of either the 1858 second edition or the 1860 third edition have apparently been offered on the market in the past half century; only the Thomas W. Streeter copy of the 1857 first edition has appeared on the market in that time period. An exceptionally rare and important California map. Gold Region, 302; Wheat, Transmississippi, 921; Heckrotte, California 49, 36; Streeter Sale, 2819; Phillips, America, p. 185.

William Henry Fox Talbot (11 February 1800 ?- 17 September 1877) was a British scientist, inventor and photography pioneer who invented the salted paper and calotype processes, precursors to photographic processes of the later 19th and 20th centuries. His work in the 1840s on photomechanical reproduction led to the creation of the photoglyphic engraving process, the precursor to photogravure. He was the holder of a controversial patent which impacted the early development of commercial photography in Britain. He was also a noted photographer who contributed to the development of photography as an artistic medium. He published The Pencil of Nature (1844?-46), which was illustrated with original salted paper prints from his calotype negatives, and made some important early photographs of Oxford, Paris, Reading, and York.

        IL POLITECNICO di CARLO CATTANEO -Repertorio mensile di studj applicati alla prosperit? e cultura sociale. SECONDA SERIE 1860-1865 - tutto il pubblicato, Milano, Editori del Politecnico, 1860

      - La rivista fu la creatura di CARLO CATTANEO, uno dei grandi protagonisti della cultura lombarda risorgimentale e delle Cinque giornate di Milano. In questa iniziativa c'è tutto il pensierio "Illuminato" di CATTANEO ed il suo tentativo di "incivilire" attraverso la CONOSCENZA. Elio Vittorini lo defini' "IL PIU' BEL PERIODICO DI CULTURA E DI SCIENZA CHE AVESSE A QUEL TEMPO L'EUROPA" tanto che nel 1945 - ad un secolo di distanza - uso' lo stesso titolo per la sua grande rivista politica in piena ricostruzione italiana del dopoguerra. In queste annate notevole fu il contributo di alcuni importanti uomini di cultura (PIETRO MAESTRI, PAOLO MARZOLO, PAOLO MANTEGAZZA, ELIA LOMBARDINI, CODAZZA, BIONDELLI BERNARDINO, COMELLI FEDERICO, STOPPANI A., COLOMBANI FRANCESCO, CARLO POSSENTI, DE FILIPPI, BALSAMO CRIVELLI), ecc.ecc. E' sempre ben evidente l'approccio positivo degli uomini di cultura e di scienza del periodo (magistralmente orientati da CATTANEO a "proporre" soluzioni o quanto meno a "tentare" - essenze della vera e sana politica.) Ricordiamo che CATTANEO, in seguito a contrasti con l'editore abbandono' la direzione nel 1863 , sostituito da FRANCESCO BRIOSCHI. La rivista cesser? poi completamente nel 1865. La collezione che presentiamo è cosi' composta TUTTI FASCICOLI SCIOLTI IN BUONE CONDIZIONI CON FOGLI IN BARBE dimensioni 16 x 24 (strappetti e macchioline varie ma interni buoni) e leggibili ANNO 1860 - pag. 1-670 - (fascicoli 43-54) ANNATA COMPLETA ANNO 1861 - pag. 1-700 - (fascicoli 55-66) mancano n. 58.59.60 ANNO 1862 - pag. 1-532 - (fascicoli 67-78) ANNATA COMPLETA ANNO 1863 - pag. 1-574 - (fascicoli 79-90) ANNATA COMPLETA ANNO 1864 - pag. 1.600 - (fascicoli 961-102) ANNATA COMPLETA ANNO 1865 - pag. 1-548 - (fascicoli 103-114) meno 103,104,110,113.

        Narrative of the Earl of Elgin's Mission to China and Japan in The Year's 1857, '58, '59.

      8vo. 645pp. + 2pp. ads. Very good indeed in publisher's dark green pebble grain cloth titled and decorated in gilt to spine anf ront board. The lightest of sunning to spine panel and a little fraying at the spine ends. Sharp and clean. Brown glazed endpapers, bookplate of noted collector Charles Walker Andrews to front pastedown. Traces of some careless opening of leaves here and there, neat ink ownership to upper right corner of title page with some transfer to the tissue guard, colour frontispiece depicting a winter scene in Japan. Internally clean, a very handsome copy. Illustrated throughout with full page plates, and numerous in text maps and engravings. Oliphant was Elgin's Secretary in 1857, a year that was to prove pretty crowded for the British Empire, The Indian Mutiny and a series of military actions in Japan including the storming of Tientsin and of course, the wanton destruction of the Summer Palace. Between India and China it's a wonder there was an Empire by 1860. Elgin gave to order to destroy the Summer Palace, arguaby one of the most beautiful and certainly one of the most wealthy places on earth in an effort to dissuade the Chinese from kidnapping and torturing British citizens after the dreaded Peking Board of Punishments tortured Parkes and Loch (Oliphant's successor as Private Secretary to Elgin). Gordon of Khartoum, as he was later to become renowned, was present at the destruction:##"We went out, and, after pillaging it, burned the whole place, destroying in a vandal-like manner most valuable property which [could] not be replaced for four millions. We got upward of £48 apiece prize money...I have done well. The [local] people are very civil, but I think the grandees hate us, as they must after what we did the Palace. You can scarcely imagine the beauty and magnificence of the places we burnt. It made one?s heart sore to burn them; in fact, these places were so large, and we were so pressed for time, that we could not plunder them carefully. Quantities of gold ornaments were burnt, considered as brass. It was wretchedly demoralising work for an army."##Elgin reputedly didn't do badly out of the sacking himself, and one might be forgiven for thinking it was genetic, seeing as it was his father who denuded the Parthenon of marbles and thus became famous. "Famous" here being a term that translates as "Really unpopular in Greece."#A handsome copy of a book covering the events of Elgin's mission, ongoing repercussions of the First Opium War, the commencement of hostilities in the Second and the mighty clash of cultures and ideologies that ended thousands of year of tradition on one side, and a long unbroken record of conquest on the other.

Each is a properly studio posed photograph. * The images are: 1. A dashing very young man with a hat and long queue, and is framed in an oval photo shape. * 2. Stunningly elegant young woman with fancy hair dressing, sits next to a table with a clock and long foreign pipe. She wears a very lovely Chinese traditional silk gown, and is framed in an oval photo shape. Name in Chinese on verso. * 3. A young woman holds a fan and wears elaborate Chinese dress, seated next on a Chinese wooden bench with foot stool. Verso shows: "Pun-lun Photographer," with Chinese character name. * 4. A young lady with hat holds a scroll and is seated wearing lovely typical Chinese dress gown. Verso shows Chinese characters "Man Zhou" [Manchuria] "Nuu zi" [woman] and the photographer's name in Chinese. * 5. A young Chinese lady wears an elaborate and lovely Chinese gown and matching hat, holds a book and has a foreign looking table adjacent to her with flowers in a vase. Version shows Chinese characters:" Mei Ren" her name and other characters. * 6. A lovely Chinese lady holds a round fan, has very long nails on her left hand and is seated next to a table where she rests her arm. Verso shows 6 Chinese characters, place and name. * 7. A Chinese woman wears an elaborate gown and is framed in an oval photo shape. Verso shows Chinese name and some English: "Hung Tai Photography Onavpoac, No. 84, Shanghai" with the family name. * 8. A Chinese girl poses for a memorial photograph, she has "Lotus" feet [bound feet] and has an elaborate coiffeur, and is seated next to a table with flowers and a vase. Verso shows 4 Chinese characters, likely her name. * 9. A family photograph, shows what can be a man, his wife and two daughters, the smaller of which sits on his knee, they are adjacent to a table, and is framed in an oval photo shape. Verso shows "Hung Tai Photography Onavpoac, No. 84, Shanghai" but with "all the family and their name" in 4 Chinese characters. ***** CONDITION: These are early 1860-1870's period vintage carte-de-visite. They are often somewhat faded although the images are very sharp, its simply the nature of such old photographs. Each image is quite nicely photographed, with clear, crisp image, although there is some of the usual fading. By and large a very nice set of quite SCARCE and early photographic portrait studies. ***** Each shows an elaborately dressed female with elegant silken gowns, hats, elaborate coiffure, jewelry; opium pipes & other decorations on a table, where their feet show, most are clearly "Golden Lotus" or bound feet, four are clearly posed at the same studio, near the same table and decorations. * One shows a particularly round-faced woman in the Canton style, holding a fan, with non-bound feet resting on a small stand. Other women have oval or more "Northern" type faces, with Manchu-type silk gowns. Each is quite unique, and a delight to behold. The have a very natural look although posed, they seem to be very real and true-to-life. They lack that common "stiff & posed" look that detracts. * Early photographs of Chinese are always scarce and seldom found on the market. This group represents refined & clearly upper-class Chinese in the most impressive silken gowns. Careful observation yields that most all wear earrings and rings, one even wears very long silver finger-extenders, another wears rings on every finger ! The leisure class recording an important moment in their life. One even holds what looks like a Western book. A stunning collection of the most charming Chinese images from over a hundred and fifty years ago * SOLD AS A GROUP ONLY. *** Color scans can be sent by email.

        Nadar Contemplates A Floor Plan (ALS)

      Paris 1860 - Paris; 1860. One page ALS. Nadar (the pseudonym of Gaspard-Felix Tournacon) writes to his contractor. Translated in part: " .It seems that we can not install our fireplaces without boring through our flooring and making an opening into our neighbors below. As far as doing so, Mademoiselle de Saraza removed this possibility in her lease. Do you want to have someone examine the matter so we can complete this project as quickly as possible? I put the matter into your hands Another point - Do think we should reconsider the position of the stairs? In doing so, we would have a quieter and more pleasant day as visitors would not have the view of this horrible little yard when they come by. The fees are roughly the same, doing so would benefit everyone, and the cost is well worth it "Nadar moved from his apartment/ studio to a large atelier at 35 Boulevard des Capucines in 1860. The costs of what eventually became a lavish reconstruction project were quite nearly ruinous –as this letter indicates they could be—but the final product, which saw Nadar’s gigantic signature emblazoned on the glass facade of what could reasonably be described as his palace, put him firmly into the public mind as the foremost practitioner of the photographic portrait, which soon became a fashion. So: a one page ALS, with a strong, clear signature, from the period when Nadar was on the brink of the eminence he eventually achieved. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        On The Origin of Species By Means Of Natural Selection

      London: John Murray, 1860. 2nd Edition . Buckram. Good/No jacket - as issued. 20x13 Cms (8" x 5"). PUBLISHING DETAILS: Second edition, fifth thousand, one of only 3000 copies published by John Murray of London in 1860 and which quickly sold out. 502 pages including index. Size; 20 x 13 cms (8" x 5"). Weight: 670g (24 ounces). CONDITION: I would rate the book as good only. It has been rebound in dark green buckram, with speckled edges to the text block, for the library of physician Dr Rogelio Pardiras of Quilmes, Argentina. The covers are in sound, clean condition (see photos). The binding remains tight and secure throughout. There is underlining to the text facing the title page and the title page itself has a neat repair to a small graze/hole (see photo), together with Dr Pardiras' stamp. The text is age-tanned throughout but is free from foxing. The diagram at page 116 looks to have been replaced with another from an old copy (see photo). Still a neat and sound copy overall and a rare opportunity to acquire a second edition at well below the normal market rate. THE BOOK: 'can we doubt ... that individuals having any advantage, however slight, over others, would have the best chance of surviving and of procreating their kind?' In the Origin of Species, Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. His insistence on the immense length of the past and on the abundance of life-forms, present and extinct, dislodged man from his central position in creation and called into question the role of the Creator. He showed that new species are achieved by natural selection, and that absence of plan is an inherent part of the evolutionary process. Darwin's prodigious reading, experimentation, and observations on his travels fed into his great work, which draws on material from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters.

        Pescatorea. Iconographie des Orchidées

      Brussels: M.Hayez for Librairie de Charles Muqardt, 1860. Folio. (17 7/8 x 12 1/2 inches). Volume I (all published). Half-title. 48 hand-coloured lithographed plates by F.Detollenaere after Detollenaere and Maubert. Expertly rebound to style in blue half morocco over 19th-century paper-covered boards, spines gilt in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second, the others with elaborate overall repeat decoration built up from various stylized flower and foliage tools First edition of this important large format work on a wide-ranging selection of the most beautiful orchids then in cultivation, originating from all the tropical regions of the world. Although the work was a collaborative effort between Linden, G. Lüddemann, J.E. Planchon and M.G. Reichenbach, the editorial control remained with Linden. A native of Luxembourg, Linden moved to Belgium in his youth and during his working life was responsible for the importation of over 1100 different orchid species. He was 'An orchid hunter par excellence.. [and] was the first to search the mountain regions diligently for his orchids. In so doing, he was able to obtain many cool-temperature plants for his sponsors in Belgium. After ten years in the western hemisphere, Linden returned to work in Brussels in 1845, where with his son, Lucien, he founded Horticulture Internationale, the first major commercial competitor of the British orchid house Messrs. Sander' ( The Orchid observed no.16 ). The work is named in honor of J.P. Pescatore of St.Cloud, one of the earliest amateur orchid growers, a client of Linden's, who maintained `la plus riche collection d'Orchidées du continent' at his home the Chateau de la Celle-St.-Cloud. According to Linden's preface, Pescatore's death and subsequent withdrawal of financial support by his executors meant that the publication was unable to continue beyond the present 12 livraisons: this was apparently very much against Pescatore's wishes, but the unexpectedness of his death had not allowed him time to make his views clear to his heirs. This version of events is generally accepted, but it is interesting to note that the `Conditions de la souscription' printed on the lower cover of the wrappers announce that the book will be published in 12 monthly parts, each containing 4 plates, beginning on 1 June 1854, and forming a single `magnifique volume in-folio': no mention is made of any further volumes. The wrappers also demonstrate a shift in emphasis towards Linden. The title on the upper wrappers reads Pescatorea. Iconographie des Orchidées de la collection de M.Pescatore, au Chateau de la Celle-St.-Cloud. Rédigées par Messieurs.. Linden.. Lüddemann.. Planchon..
