        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."" "

        9 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.,

      Krakau, Schevening u. Wien, 1852-1860 bzw. o. 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.

Tirages sans défauts sur l'image. Tirages non signés. 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.

        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.

        A BOY'S ASCENT OF MONT BLANC With a Memoir of the Author by Edmund Yates

      London. Ward, Lock and Tyler, (1860).. (1860), small 8vo, 165 x 105 mm, 6½ x 4 inches, frontispiece and 22 text illustrations, pages: xxxvi, 299, bound in original publisher's red cloth with black stamped decoration to spine and upper cover, illustration and lettering in gilt with a green and a blue initial to upper cover, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, all edges gilt, brown coated endpapers. Rebacked expertly with original spine laid on, new cloth showing at head and tail and on hinges, spine slightly darkened, spine gilt dull, small dark stain at lower edge of upper cover, 3 other very small stains, endpapers chipped at edges, 2 names on front endpapers, another on reverse of frontispiece, frontispiece and title page faintly foxed, small light brown stain affects 10 pages, otherwise contents clean and bright, binding tight and firm. A good sound copy. This is not the story of a boy's ascent of Mont Blanc, rather it is a history and description of ascents of Mont Blanc for the instruction and amusement of boys, including the famous ascent by the author in 1851 which is recounted in detail. Albert Smith (1816-1860) had a passion for Mont Blanc and after his ascent he produced an illustrated lecture based on his experiences. This ran for six years at the Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly and made him a rich man, starting a craze for Mont Blanc. His book on Mont Blanc was originally published by David Bogue in 1852 and went into many editions. This 'Boy's' edition which is scarce was published the same year as an edition for adults also with the Yates memoir. See Neate, Mountaineering and its Literature, No. 718 and 719. See also Appendix III. 1 copy listed in Copac (Major Libraries in the UK) in the National Library of Scotland; OCLC, World Catalogue, list 2 copies, 1 in Zentralbibliothek Zürich and 1 in National Library of Scotland.

        A New York Newspaper Prints Lincoln’s Cooper Union Speech on the Front Page

      New York, NY 1860 - Newspaper. New York Semi-Weekly Tribune, New York, N.Y., February 28, 1860, 8 pp., disbound. The complete text of Lincoln's speech is printed under the headline: "NATIONAL POLITICS, A Speech, Delivered at the Cooper Institute Last Evening, by, ABRAHAM LINCOLN, of Illinois." "Let us have faith that right makes might." Brief Excerpt"Let all who believe that 'our fathers, who framed the Government under which we live, understood this question just as well, and even better, than we do now,' speak as they spoke, and act as they acted upon it. This is all Republicans ask -- all Republicans desire -- in relation to slavery. As those fathers marked it, so let it be again marked, as an evil not to be extended, but to be tolerated and protected only because of and so far as is actual presence among us makes that toleration and protection a necessity. Let all the guaranties those fathers gave it, be, not grudgingly, but fully and fairly maintained.Neither let us be slandered from our duty by false accusations against us, nor frightened from it by menaces of destruction to the Government nor of dungeons to ourselves. Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith, let us, to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it." Historical BackgroundLincoln gave his speech at the Cooper Institute in New York City before he captured the Republican presidential nomination, and its success catapulted him to national attention as a viable presidential candidate. Using James Elliot's The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution, he delivered a speech that concentrated on the Founders' original intent about the contentious issue of slavery. As in his "House Divided Speech" two years earlier, Lincoln used the occasion to differentiate his positions from those of the Democrats, who accused Republicans of being a sectional party, or of helping John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry, or threatened secession if Lincoln was elected. Lincoln begins by arguing that twenty-one of the thirty-nine Constitution signers believed that the federal government could ban slavery in the territories. He then explained the Republican position did not threaten slavery where it already existed, though he did insist on limiting slavery's expansion into the territories.Unlike most of Lincoln's important speeches, the Cooper Union address is neither short nor particularly quotable. Nevertheless, Lincoln the lawyer lays out his arguments, building to the unassailable conclusion that the Founding Fathers saw slavery as an institution that would wither and die with time and isolation.On the afternoon of the speech, Lincoln sat for a photographic portrait in Matthew Brady's New York studio. He later reputedly said, "Brady and the Cooper Institute made me President." Lincoln dined with supporters, and he then went to the New York Tribune offices to read and correct the typeset text of his speech. According to the young typesetter who worked with Lincoln that night, the manuscript was left on a table and then discarded.Later, on page 4, Tribune editor Horace Greeley comments in an editorial, "The Speech of Abraham Lincoln at the Cooper Institute last evening was one of the happiest and most convincing political arguments ever made in this City." Greeley was so pleased that he rushed this edition into print, but also commented that "We shall print an extra edition of the Semi Weekly Tribune containing the speech . We shall soon issue his speech of last night in pamphlet form." The extra was printed later in the day on February 28; the pamphlet was printed March 6. As a result this is the first printing of Lincoln's Cooper Institute Speech.

The endpaper contains the iunscription : "To W.H. Cummings Esq in rememberance of Dr Rimbault April 24th 1877". W.H.Cummings (1831-1915) was an English musician, tenor and organist who, as a teenage chorister, was conducted by Mendelssohn at Exeter Hall. Cummings is also credited with linking Charles Wesley's words Hark The Herald Angels Sing to Mendellssohn's music, which remain together to this day. This copy contains several interesting items of ephemera loosely inserted : A two page autograph letter to Cummings from the German composer and iolinist Carl Zoeller, a 1 page manuscript note on the Hygienic Moveable Keyboard, half a dozen small engravings or albumen prints of keyboards, a 1902 pamphlet by Professor Mantovani Rossini a Lugo e Il Cembalo, which contains two ills of early keyboards, an illustratan early engraving by Richardson of Barbara Urselin the bearded lady, and some other early 19thc illustrated keyboard ephemera tipped in. A most interesting copy for the keyboard historian. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [cover title] Left by the Indians. Story of my life.

      Howes tells us that ?This is the only account by a survivor of the extreme hardships suffered by the [1860] Utter-Myers Overland Train,? and Smith adds that "Among overland disasters, [this tragedy was] equaled in horror only by that of the Donner party; cannibalism was resorted to in both cases." Fuller's account of the party of 44 that left Wisconsin in May 1860 heading for Oregon?s Willamette Valley is unstinting in its telling of attacks by a large party of Shoshone and Bannock along the Snake River, the rapine of the wolves afterwards, and the failure of those yet living to find food except the bodies of dead members of the party. Only 16 survived. "It is at the request of many friends I consent to publish the story of my life. They have heard enough of what I have suffered by the Indians, to make them anxious to hear or rest the rest. To repeat the whole story to every individual that wants to hear it is an impossibility -- hence I write that they may read for themselves" (preface). Yes, her autobiography does continue her life and travels after the massacre, but only to 1879. She died in either 1923 or 1924. There are two pages of portraits of Fuller's family as they looked in 1860: her mother, father, a baby, a brother and sister, and herself at 14 years. There is an additional full-page portrait of Fuller as she looked in 1892. Life-time published accounts by pioneer women in the Pacific Northwest are uncommon. Those detailing massacres and cannibalism even fewer.

The periodical was issued semi-monthly; each issue includes lecture notes from M.E. Chevreul's "Cours de teintures des Gobelins," here in its first printing. Chevreul's colour studies made him one of the most influential scientists in France during the nineteenth century. From 1824 he was director of dyeing at the Manufactures Royales des Gobelins where he taught chemistry for nearly sixty years. "Chevreul's immediate task at Gobelins was to work on the improvement of colour intensity and fastness in wools. He had been selected for this position because he was an outstanding chemist; and his initial studies were on the chemical aspects of dyes and dyeing, attempting to place the art of dyeing on a more rational basis than the complicated and empirical procedures then employed...Chevreul rendered an important service to the dye industry during the years prior to the advent of synthetic dyestuff" (DSB). With nearly two hundred specimens of various colour dyes on paper, cotton, silk, rope and a few illustrating the tanning and colouring of leather. The final volume investigates a large number of contrasting colours on the same type of sample (Échantillon de Papier). Fragile spines somewhat worn but an excellent copy in original condition, with many gatherings unopened. A desirable copy of a rare and important work. Bibliotheca Tinctoria 1218.

Walker was a man who wanted his own country and did not let initial failure deter him. His attempt to take Nicaragua was successful at first but a combination of local resistance, the Costa Rican army, and mercenaries in the employ of Cornelius Vanderbilt (who viewed Walker as a threat to his own interests in Central America) brought about Walker's downfall.After a brief respite back in the U.S., where he was welcomed as a hero, Walker, the quintessential filibusterer, returned to Central America wanting to capture Honduras. He died there trying.The map (14" x 16") is in four colors and is titled "Colton's Nicaragua, Guatemala, Honduras, San Salvador & Costa Rica. Publisher's brick colored textured cloth stamped in blind. Top and bottom of spine pulled and frayed. Some foxing at front and rear. Newspaper articles at front and rear of volume.

        Alphabet Lottery Cards

      Mexico: n.p., n.d. (1860's). Very good. Set of 24 lottery alphabet cards about 1½ by 3 inches, lithographed in black on white stock and mounted on stiff card. The 24 cards cover the entire Spanish alphabet, except for Rr, but are complete as issued. Each card shows a lithographed scene, sometimes attributed to Yriarte, beneath which is the letter of the alphabet, followed by a word beginning with that letter, then a humorous verse, sometimes with a play on words. The lotería is well known in Mexico, a game a bit like our Bingo but which uses cards with pictures and sayings instead of numbered balls. The players each have a card with some of the card images on them--the tabla--and they mark the drawn cards on the tabla with beans, coins or other markers. In the 1880's Don Clemente Gallo issued lottery cards in what have become more or less standard images. Earlier cards are unbelievably scarce. This set of 24 cards is complete. Even the last card shows a vendor of the uncut sheets bearing the 24 images with the caption: 'x et z estivale la geta segun dicen, lector, los colegiales Acabó el alfabeto, mas tus reales Espero sepultar en mi gareta' 'The alphabet is finished now, but your gold I hope to bury in my attic.' Lottery cards prior to the 1880s are scarce, and variants such as this alphabet set are downright rare. We have been able to find only one other set, in the Southwest Special Collections of the University of New Mexico, but no copies of the tabla with which they are associated. The possible Yriarte connection derives from the description in the University archive. Captioned in archaic Spanish.

Eigenthum der Verleger fur alle Lander… 5361.Leipzig: Breitkopf & Hartel, (Dezember) 1860.First edition, inscribed by Brahms on the front wrapper in the year of publication and signed "J. B."Brahms completed this major serenade while in his mid-twenties. "In 1857 he obtained his first official position when he was engaged for three months by the princely court of Detmold as pianist-in-residence and conductor of the choir society, part-time duties he performed for three years. This post provided valuable practical experience and left him enough time for his own work… (including) the two delightful Serenades for orchestra" (Karl Geiringer). In 1853 Brahms had given his first concert at Leipzig and drew the attention of the publishing firm of Breitkopf and Haertel, which undertook the publication of his compositions.McCorkle, 31-36.Wrappers and spine with light wear, closed tear to rear cover; interior bright and fine.

        The Dinner Question: or, How to Dine Well and Economically. Combining the rudiments of Cookery with useful hints on dinner giving and serving, and other household words of advice: garnished with anecdotes of eminent cooks and epicures as well as wise saws in gastronomy from the great masters

      London: Routledge, Warne and Routledge, 1860. In the original boards. First edition. 8vo., original pictorial paper covered boards, rebacked with new endpapers. Some light browning with rubbing and bumping to the covers, but a rare survivial with the original boards. 'Tickletooth's' focus is on "Plain instructions for the preparation of Plain dishes at the least possible expense". She writes that Soyer came closest to providing this in his Shilling Cookery for the Million but that he was too French and it was inappropriate for "many who have a natural love of simple and succulent English good cheer". The book covers many aspects of domestic life from furnishings, care of the teeth, kitchen utensils, the philosophy of cooking followed by many good sound British recipes, plenty being 'a la Tickletooth'. Also included are detailed reviews of various places to dine out in London and the 'suburbs' in Victorian times.

        The Imperial Atlas of Modern Geography. An Extensive Series of Maps, Embracing the Most Recent Discoveries and the Latest Political Divisions of Territory in all Parts of the World. Compiled and Engraved from the Most Authentic Sources

      London: Blackie & Son.. Good+ with no dust jacket. 1860. First Edition. Hardcover. Modern? (ish) half leather, bound with a heavy plain black unlettered leather spine, with 4 raised bands, and corners over burgundy cloth boards. Reinforced inner hinge in blue 'cloth' with marbled paper endpapers stuck down to white card, and similar to the rear endpapers - which in this case should be 'endcards'. These 'endcards' have the half title and the last page stuck down to these white card endpapers. Possibly an Amateur binder? . Large Folio/Small Elephant Folio. Approx 38 cm x 31 cm (15" x 12.5"). (xi) + [i] + 100 maps plus Index 117 pp. These 100 numbered maps are hand-coloured in outline, mainly on double-page sheets, but some on single page sheets and some are 'North' and 'South' (ie: half a map) on individual double pages. All page fore-edges are gilt. The maps are generally VG but all have uniform and light brown (dust engrained) edges to the blank margins. A lot of this will rub off. Some of the maps have a little light foxing here and there. There is a large tear, repaired with now yellowing sellotape, across Map XXX (30) - A single page map 'The Shores of the Mediterranean, the Adriatic and the Black Sea'. There is a small ink blot to the bottom edge of the 'General Map of Asia'; on the map 'Persia, Afghanistan and Beloochistan' there is an old ink circle around the name 'Jellalabad' and an ink cross in the margin marking this; and some pencil notes on the 'General Map of South America' - easily erased I should imagine. The rest of the Atlas is unmarked. Double page maps measure circa 54 cm x 37 cm. ALL Maps are mounted on raised lengths of paper ensuring there are NO centre staples or similar. Great Source material for researchers /students, and individually lovely pictorial memorials of a world now past - lots of blank uncharted territories worldwide. Great for framing. Very Heavy. See IMAGES. ; Small Elephant Folio 23" tall .
