      Dixon & Edwards, 1856-, New York 1860 - First edition, Octavo, three volumes. Original cloth. A Journey In The Seaboard Slave states is inscribed by the author to his cousin Charles Olmsted. The cloth has been sympathetically rebacked. The remaining two volumes are in very good condition. Books inscribed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the father of American Landscape Architecture, are rare. Interested in the slave economy, he was commissioned by the New York Daily Times (now The New York Times) to embark on an extensive research journey through the American South and Texas from 1852 to 1857. His dispatches to the Times were collected into three volumes (A Journey in the Seaboard Slave States (1856),A Journey Through Texas (1857), A Journey in the Back Country in the Winter of 1853-4 (1860) which remain vivid first-person social documents of the pre-war South.

        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.

      - 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 i 100 gr.

        PARTIE DU PORT-LOUIS [manuscript title]

      [N.p., but almost certainly Port Louis, 1860. Old folds. Minor wear and soiling. Browned. Near fine. Manuscript plan of Port Louis on the island of Mauritius. The legend contains sixteen lettered items, including the fortifications and government buildings, as well as several buildings which are denoted on the map with a dotted line, indicating future rather than current structures. Government buildings and fortifications are colored red. This would seem to be a later copy of an earlier map of the city, evidently showing the town and fortifications as they were in 1769, when the French East India Company had just taken over. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. 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.

        Major General J Ogilvie Sed Book. Manuscript

      1860 - An Interesting Scottish Law Suit [Trial]. [Manuscript]. [Ogilvie, John (1783-1847)]. [Major Genl. J. Ogilvie Sed. Book Vol. 2. (Spine title, item complete, see below)]. [Likely Edinburgh, 1860s-1871]. [iv], 270 pp. Folio (13" x 8-1/2"). Three-quarter calf over marbled boards. Some rubbing to extremities with chipping to spine ends, corners somewhat worn, text in various neat hands. * From the Oriental Bank Company of Bombay, India to Edinburgh. Here is the story of Major General John Ogilvie and the trustees who settled his complicated estate over a protracted period among feuding family members. In this scenario, it would be a half-sister who would be fighting for a share in the disputed estate versus her sister-in-law. The rights of a woman legatee, in this case the General's widow, were at stake as were the widow's desire to fulfill her husband's wishes. General Ogilvie served in the Honorable East India Company Madras Army. He died without issue and was survived by his widow, Helen Ogilvie [1785-1867]. Helen Ogilvie decided to bequeath the estate to her husband's half-brother, James Ogilvie, but to omit another half-brother, Archibald Ogilvie from the estate. Her decision to exclude Archibald Ogilvie-the widow pointedly stated-was the wish of her deceased husband. But Helen's decision now opened the door to a legal challenge by General Ogilvie's half-sister, Isobel Ogilvie Miller, and Isobel's husband. They too now made a claim on the estate. This challenge came to a head on January 25th, 1870 in the court decision John Duncan and Others (Trustees of General Ogilvie) represented by the Solicitor-General's office via Clark-Munro vs. Mrs. Isobel Ogilvie or Miller and Husband, represented by Fraser and Watson. The case was heard and decided by the entire four-judge bench of the First Division of the Court of Session at Edinburgh, the supreme civil court of Scotland. Despite the designation "Volume 2," this volume forms a complete record created by legal solicitors on behalf of the trustees of General Ogilvie's estate. Volume 1 and any other volumes covered, we assume, other aspects of the suit. The records are in chronological order from 1849 to 1871, but appear to have been gathered as a final record book of the estate's settlement in 1871, following an 1870 Court of Session decision. The volume contains [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Boomanoomana Station from across the Murray River [with] American Merino Rams pedigree of sheep by W. G. Markham, purchased by Alfred Hay of Boomanoomana in 1883.

      Ca 1860s; 1883 - Albumen cabinet card with original photograph of the Australian station, now located in the township called Barooga. Photograph on card with printed border, the title written in pencil on verso. A small station house is visible at the right side of the image, with a long wooden fence bordering the river. The area which later became Boomanoomana Station was first settled in the early 1800’s by Colonel Henry Gwynne, who arrived there in the footsteps of Charles Sturt. By 1863 the station got its name when William Hay acquired 80,000 acres. The property extended from Corowa in the east to Tuppal Station in the west, and was quite wooded, therefore suitable for cattle. But Hay wanted to establish a sheep station, so he sold off his cattle, cleared the trees at great effort and fenced the land, purchasing merino sheep from established stations. Hay built a homestead which still stands; it was owned by Sir David Hay (1916 - 2009), head of Aboriginal Affairs, Administrator of Papua New Guinea and Ambassador to the UN, who restored the grounds and buildings to original condition. 3 1/2 x 6 1/2" image on card 4 1/2 x 6 1/2". Cabinet card not recorded in Trove.[with] American Merino Rams, recorded in the American Merino Register, selected by W. G. Markham, Avon, NY USA from the best American Flocks. Shipped from San Francisco, California, June, 1883. Consignee: Alfred Hay, Esq., Boomanoomana, Mulwala, New South Wales, Australia. W. G. Markham was heavily involved in the exportation of merinos to Australia. He convinced Australian wool growers that introducing American merinos into the Australia flock would increase their weight, and this was very successful. The purchaser here is Alfred Hay (1846 - 1918), the son of William Hay, who established Boomanoomana Station. Alfred Hay became sole owner of Boomanoomana Station in 1886, after the dissolution of the partnership between his father, himself, and brother. Boomanoomana Station at the time consisted of 33,000 acres of freehold, and about 5,000 acres of Crown lands.Markham was mentioned in many articles about Australian wool growing. In the "Pacific Rural Press", Volume 36, Number 24, 15 December 1888, it reads: "We imagine it was this large purchase (of sheep) by Mr. (Samuel) McCaughey which started that genial globetrotter in the sheep interest, Mr. W. G. Markham of Western New York, on a pleasure trip to Australia last summer. Mr. Markham made us a call (in California) on his way out but did not disclose his business. We imagine that he went to see if there were any more sheep buyers like Mr. McCaughey in Australia, and turn their attention to the flock of Western New York as well as to those of the Green Mountain State. It might not be amiss for some of our California breeders to Blip over to the Island continent, just to see how things are over there." Samuel McCaughey, of Melbourne, was reputed to be the owner of a million sheep, and one of the most influential wool producers in Australia. The pedigree published in New York, 1883. 17 pp text, with a fold-out pedigree of Ranzin 464. Oblong 12mo, orig. brown mat boards with gilt. "Compliments of W. G. Markham" on the front cover, black cloth spine. Slt. watermark on back board, otherwise pristine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        JOURNAL OF RESEARCHES INTO THE NATURAL HISTORY AND GEOLOGY OF THE COUNTRIES VISITED DURING THE VOYAGE OF H.M.S. BEAGLE ROUND THE WORLD under the command of Capt. Fitz Roy, R.N.

      London, John Murray, 1860.Second edition, tenth thousand, 1860. 8vo, approximately 195 x 115 mm, 7¾ x 4½ inches, a few wood engraved illustrations and diagrams in the text, pages: xv, 519 including index, plus 32 page catalogue with adverts dated April 1867, bound in the original publisher's zigzag pattern green cloth, blind stamped decoration to covers, gilt decoration, gilt rules and gilt lettering to spine, original light brown endpapers. Tiny crease at tail of spine, gilt decoration just slightly rubbed in a couple of places, a touch of rubbing to corners, tiny bump to lower corner of lower cover, inner paper hinges not cracked, neat inscription to front pastedown, title page faintly browned, slight faint foxing to Contents table which is printed on different paper from the rest of the book, text pages bright and clean throughout. A very good plus copy. This is Darwin's first published book and is the most often read and stands second only to The Origin of Species as the most often printed. Referred to universally today as the Voyage of the Beagle, it is an important travel book in its own right and its relation to the background of Darwin's evolutionary ideas has often been stressed. The tenth thousand which this is provides the definitive text and sees the first appearance of the Postscript dated February 1st 1860 on page vii in which Darwin takes the opportunity to correct some errors. This is the first time it was published in the green cloth binding in the same style as the first three John Murray editions of On the Origin of Species. See Freeman, The Works of Charles Darwin, pages 31 - 36 and No. 20. Freeman states that inserted advertisements in our edition may be as late as September 1868.

        LEAVES OF GRASS

      Boston: Thayer and Eldridge, 1860. Third edition. Very Good. Second printing of the third edition with pink end-papers. BAL 21397. A Very Good+ copy with the spine sunned and trivial wear at the extremities. Internally an attractive copy with the bookplate of Newton Hall, Cambridge on the front paste-down. Enlarged from the 1855 and 1856 self-published editions to include an additional 122 poems. "Leaves of Grass" remains one of the most important works of poetry written by an American. Born out of the Transcendentalist movement the work is filled with an appreciation for the natural world and man's place within it. "Always the champion of the common man, Whitman is both the poet and prophet of democracy. The whole of Leaves of Grass is imbued with the spirit of brotherhood and a pride in the democracy of the young American nation. In a sense, it is America's second Declaration of Independence: that of 1776 was political, that of 1855 intellectual." (PMM). Very Good.

        On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection

      New York: D. Appleton & Company, 1860. First American edition. Near Fine. First printing with two quotations on the verso of the half-title. Publisher's original brown ribbed cloth, stamped in blind on the panels and gilt on the spine. And here's something you won't see very often, cloth complete, beautiful and completely untouched. Both hinges are strong and untouched. Bookseller's blindstamp on the front, brown-coated end paper and a previous owner's stamp on the top of the title page, which has been partially bleached, but remains legible. Internal contents are complete, intact and appear unread, although there is light to moderate foxing throughout, as almost always. With most copies on the market heavily restored or repaired, this copy is the finest we have seen by some margin. Darwin's book expounded a theory of evolution markedly superior to anything that had come before. It was aimed at the educated population generally, not just the academic community, and it sparked intense debate and controversy. Darwin attempted to explain the vast array of life on earth from a scientific perspective, showing how selected attributes could form new species given the right circumstances. "In accomplishing this Darwin not only drew an entirely new picture of the workings of organic nature; he revolutionized our methods of thinking and our outlook on the natural order of things. The recognition that constant change is the order of the universe had been finally established and a vast step forward in the uniformity of nature had been taken." -- PMM. Near Fine.

        Telegraph inventor Samuel Morse honors an autograph request; offered with an 1841 receipt for supplies for the first operational electromagnetic telegraph, docketed by the great inventor

      New York, December 11, 1860. 4.5" x 7", 7.5" x 2.75". "Autograph Note Signed, ""Saml. F. B. Morse,"" 1 page 4.5"" x 7"", New York, December 11, 1860 to W. C. Jones, of Clinton, New York apparently honoring an autograph request. Horizontal folds, one of which is partially separated at the left margin, a 4.5"" x 2.5"" piece of blue paper has been affixed to verso to add stability, very light scattered foxing, else very good with a beautiful example of Morse's distinctive signature.Morse writes, in full: ""Sir, This is for your friend in compliance with your request.""Offered together with an Autograph Endorsement accomplished on the docket of a manuscript Document Signed, ""George Collard,"" 1 page, 7.5"" x 2.75"", Washington, January 15, 1844, being a receipt for $13.88 worth of lumber intended for use in construction of the first operational telegraph line between Washington and Baltimore. Morse dockets the receipt: ""Voucher No. 446 Geo. Collard lumber $13.88 Jany. 15, 1844"". The receipt reads, in full: ""Washington Jany 15, 1844 United States by Professor S. F. B. Morse Sup't. 881 fe[et?]. 6/4 W. pine @ 1 1/4 11.01 100 f 4/4 1 1/4 1.25 144 stud 1 1/8 1.62 Rcpt $13.88 George Collard.""Although the U.S. Treasury had appropriated funds for the construction of the first telegraph line from Baltimore to Washington under the supervision of Morse, and granted him the grand title ""Superintendent of the Electrical Magnetic Telegraph,"" Morse was required to keep rigorous accounts of his disbursements for materials. In his 1837 proposal for the telegraph, Morse had considered running the telegraph cable overhead on poles or underground. By the time construction was authorized, he elected the latter method, for reasons of cost. It was Morse's idea to protect his fragile copper telegraph cable by running it through protective lead pipe, half an inch in diameter. After bids were taken, he contracted with James E. Serrell to deliver the necessary quantity. But by Fall of 1843, as the line progressed, Serrell could not produce pipe quickly enough, and encountered problems with its manufacture. The exasperated Morse revoked the contract and hired Tatham & Bros. of New York, but they too, experienced serious problems with the process. In light of difficulties with the pipe, Morse decided to abandon the underground wire plan and turned to stringing his wire on poles, which would ultimately prove successful. On 24 May 1844, tapping a key in his Washington D.C. terminus, Morse transmitted the first message over the new line, the now famous words ""What hath God wrought."" "

J. - Gräfin Potocka „gehörte zum engen Kreis der Mitarbeiter der Ztg. ‚Czas‘. 1860-63 stellte sie zwischen den Krakauer Konservativen, welche sie im Kampf um die galiz. Autonomie tatkräftig unterstützte und dem Zentrum der poln. Emigration im Hotel Lambert in Paris sowie zu den offiziellen französ. Kreisen wichtige Kontakte her. Sie wirkte verdienstvoll als Präs. des Towarzystwa Dobroczynnosci (Wohltätige Ges.) in Krakau (Krakow) und war eine bekannte Kunstsammlerin" (ÖBL). Es wurde gemunkelt, Potocka sei eine Urenkelin von Katharina der Großen. Der letzte zu Lebzeiten Chopins veröffentlichte Walzer war der polnischen Gräfin gewidmet. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Beiliegend ein vierseitiger eigenh.

Prix : 2.500 euros Photographe d’architecture pionnier et reconnu, Edouard Baldus (1813-1889) participe à la Mission héliographique en 1851, opération commandée par la commission des Monuments historiques dans le but de dresser un inventaire du patrimoine français. Il poursuit ses déplacements dans tout le pays, photographiant notamment les inondations du Rhône en 1856. Il va jusque dans le sud de la France, en Provence et jusqu'en bord de mer. Son oeuvre est déterminante dans l'histoire de la photographie. Baldus, auquel on doit des vues d'architectures, d'ouvrages d'art, et de paysages, était un des photographes officiels du Second Empire, période durant laquelle il a sillonné la France pour répondre à des commandes prestigieuses. Auteur du premier album de chemins de fer, destiné à la reine Victoria, Baldus a imaginé un nouveau type d'illustration : idéaliser le paysage en photographiant pareillement un viaduc, une cathédrale, un rocher ou un site naturel. Le monumental et le spectaculaire sont deux préoccupations qui traversent l'oeuvre de Baldus, réputé pour la précision et la grandeur de ses épreuves. (source internet)

        History of the War in the Peninsula

      London: Thomas & William Boone,, 1860. and in the South of France, from the year 1807 to the Year 1814. New Edition, Revised by the Author. 6 volumes, octavo (188 × 118 mm) Strictly contemporary dark blue hard-grained morocco presentation binding for the Royal Military Academy, title gilt direct to spines, broad flat bands with gilt rules, double-fillet gilt panels with fleur-de-lys corner-pieces to the compartments, triple fillet panels to the boards, with presentation supralibros to each volume, floral roll to board edges and turn-ins, all edges gilt, cream surface-paper endpapers. 55 tissue-guarded, engraved battle plans. Light shelf-wear, the spines perhaps a touch sunned, mild oxidation of the endpapers, mild browning, but overall very good. First published 1828-40. Napier saw extensive service in the Peninsula, several times wounded, and commanding his regiment, the 43rd, at Nivelle and the Nive, and receiving the gold medal with clasps for Salamanca, the Nivelle, and Nive, and the silver medal with three clasps for Busaco, Fuentes d'Oñoro, and Orthez. The officers of his regiment presented him a sword "as a testimony of their sincere regard for him and their high admiration of the gallantry and conduct he ever displayed during his exemplary career". In retirement he decided, "despite lack of literary experience" (ODNB), to write a history of the war; "Wellington refused use of his private papers, but gave Napier Joseph Bonaparte's correspondence with Napoleon, senior military figures, and politicians captured at Vitoria, and answered copious questions. For some months in 1824 Napier lived in a cottage at Stratfield Saye, but the duchess banned him from the house, because of his 'commonplace opinions in politics'. Sir George Murray, quartermaster-general in the Peninsula, denied him access to documents and maps in his possession, though Soult proved more accommodating when Napier returned to Paris, where he met other Napoleonic commanders, Ney's widow, and Jomini … Back in England Napier used journals and other printed sources, and corresponded at length with many British and French officers". The resulting work certainly divided opinion, "Soult considered it 'perfect', Sir Robert Peel 'eloquent and faithful', the Spanish general Alava felt it too pro-French, and a British officer in India demanded satisfaction on his return for a 'most unfounded calumny' about his conduct at Barossa" (ODNB) As a result teach volume contains an accumulation of "justificatory pieces" in answer to Napier's critics, his controversy with Beresford over Albuera was particularly rancourous. Perhaps judgement is best left to the acknowledged master chronicler of the conflict, Sir Charles Oman, who described Napier's work as "magnificent (if somewhat prejudiced and biased)". The set was presented to Gentleman Cadet Samuel Pym in 1860 as his prize for history. Pym rose to the rank of colonel in the Royal Artillery, and was for a while deputy-governor of Bermuda. A beautifully preserved set.

        JOURNAL OF RESEARCHES INTO THE NATURAL HISTORY AND GEOLOGY OF THE COUNTRIES VISITED DURING THE VOYAGE OF H.M.S. BEAGLE ROUND THE WORLD under the command of Capt. Fitz Roy, R.N

      London, John Murray, 1860.. Second edition, tenth thousand, 1860. 8vo, approximately 195 x 115 mm, 7¾ x 4½ inches, a few wood engraved illustrations and diagrams in the text, pages: xv, 519 including index, plus 32 page catalogue with adverts dated April 1867, bound in the original publisher's zigzag pattern green cloth, blind stamped decoration to covers, gilt decoration, gilt rules and gilt lettering to spine, original light brown endpapers. Tiny crease at tail of spine, gilt decoration just slightly rubbed in a couple of places, a touch of rubbing to corners, tiny bump to lower corner of lower cover, inner paper hinges not cracked, neat inscription to front pastedown, title page faintly browned, slight faint foxing to Contents table which is printed on different paper from the rest of the book, text pages bright and clean throughout. A very good plus copy. This is Darwin's first published book and is the most often read and stands second only to The Origin of Species as the most often printed. Referred to universally today as the Voyage of the Beagle, it is an important travel book in its own right and its relation to the background of Darwin's evolutionary ideas has often been stressed. The tenth thousand which this is provides the definitive text and sees the first appearance of the Postscript dated February 1st 1860 on page vii in which Darwin takes the opportunity to correct some errors. This is the first time it was published in the green cloth binding in the same style as the first three John Murray editions of On the Origin of Species. See Freeman, The Works of Charles Darwin, pages 31-36 and No. 20. Freeman states that inserted advertisements in our edition may be as late as September 1868. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        POPULAR TALES OF THE WEST HIGHLANDS. Orally Collected with a Translation by J. F. Campbell

      Edinburgh: Edmonston and Douglas,. 1860-1862. nineteenth-century three-quarter brown pebbled leather and marbled boards, spine panels richly tooled in gold, t.e.g., marbled endpapers.. Leather rubbed at spine ends and corners, boards rubbed, lower. margins of a few leaves in volume three creased at lower right. margins, a tight, very good copy with clean, nearly fine interior.. (#136834). First edition. John Francis Campbell of Islay (1821-1885) is perhaps best known as a pioneer collector of Gaelic folklore, systematically recording the Gaelic oral tradition principally in the Scottish Highlands and Western Islands. Campbell published the first two volumes of his groundbreaking, highly influential POPULAR TALES OF THE WEST HIGHLANDS in 1860. Two more volumes followed in 1862. The resourceful Campbell, a descendant of Highland chieftains living in the midst of his own dying folk tradition, "came up with a brilliant idea which would transform field collecting. He employed and trained collectors expert in Gaelic and born in the Highlands and the Western Islands to interview and record the storytellers in their dialects ... In a remarkably short time [he] captured a whole archive of folk tales. He printed 86 in three volumes and announced in his final note at the end of volume four in 1862 that his aides had sent him a total of 791 stories ... more were coming in all the time, and yet whole districts were still untouched ... Campbell himself never placed more tales in print and could not even spare time to oversee a second edition, which did not appear until after his death ... Folklorists are content with POPULAR TALES. In addition to the precious texts and variants of Highland stories in English and Gaelic, the author supplied an absorbing introduction of well over a hundred pages, copious observations on elements and variations in the tales, and a fourth volume containing a monographic essay on the Ossianic controversy with additional papers on 'Traditions,' 'Mythology,' 'A Plea for Gaelic,' 'Highland Dress,' 'Celtic Art' and 'Music.'" - Dorson, The British Folklorists, pp. 392-402.
