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

      Columbus, OH: Follett, Foster and Company, 1860 First edition, first printing, first issue, without a line over the publisher's imprint on the verso of the title page, and "2" to the foot of page 17. Publisher's brown cloth, boards decoratively stamped in blind, spine lettered in gilt. Near fine, with the lightest touch of wear to extremities, fresh and unfaded cloth, spine gilt bright, contemporary former owner's inscriptions to the front endpapers and title page, bookplate to front pastedown, bright and clean interior. Overall, about fine and completely unsophisticated, the nicest we've seen. Howes L338. Monaghan 69. HBS 65543. Political Debates between Hon. Abraham Lincoln and Hon. Stephen Douglas collects the transcripts of the seven debates between Lincoln and Douglas held in Illinois from August 21 - October 15, 1858. When both men were running for Senate in Illinois, Lincoln challenged his Democratic opponent to a series of formal debates, which took place at Ottawa, Freeport, Jonesboro, Charleston, Galesburg, Quincy, and Alton. In each city, one candidate would open with an hour speech, the other would respond with an hour and half response, and the first would conclude the debate with a thirty minute rebuttal. The main topic of the debates was slavery, particularly in regards to its legality in the American territories. Notably, in the second debate, which was held in Freeport, Douglas articulated his "Freeport Doctrine," which argued for using popular sovereignty as a means to determine whether or not a territory would allow slavery. Although Lincoln would lose the senatorial race, Douglas' support of the Kansas-Nebraska Act vis-à-vis the Freeport Doctrine directly contradicted the Dred Scott decision and caused a regional divide in the Democratic Party, thereby paving the way for Lincoln to win the 1860 presidential election. In addition to the "Great Debates," this volume includes Lincoln and Douglas speeches given earlier in the same year at Springfield and Chicago, which include Lincoln's memorable "The House Divided" speech, as well as the two men's correspondence prior to the debates. Notably, Political Debates was printed in 1860 to garner support for Lincoln in the presidential race.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        On The Origin of Species in The Quarterly Review Vol 108

      London: John Murray. 1860, 1860. First edition. 8vo. 614pp. Handsomely bound in contemporary quarter tan calf over marbled boards with black title labels. Gilt ruling to spine compartments, minor scuffing and edgewear. Very good indeed, strong and extremely handsome. Includes errata slip for the Darwin review tipped in at the contents page. Contains the first appearance of Bishop Wilberforce's review of Darwin's Origin of Species, "review" being a technical term... "frothing exhibition of ignorance" being the more colloquial description. Not only did this review bring him into Thomas Huxley's sights, resulting in their famous debate, it also probably did more to cement Darwin's reputation as a solid scientist in relation to a number of his peers (R.I. Murchison for example is reputed to have encouraged Wilberforce in his review out of sheer jealousy at the attention Darwin was receiving). A handsome copy of a scarce piece of natural history, an important review of a very important book.

      1860. [a handsome copy] Boston: Thayer and Eldridge, Year 85 of the States (1860-61) [actually May 1860]. Original blind-stamped orange-brown cloth, beveled. Third Edition, first impression -- greatly expanded from the two earlier editions (both of which had been self-published). The first (1855) edition had consisted of only 12 poems; the second (1856) just 32. This third edition, by a legitimate (if financially shaky) publisher, contains 156 poems. Among the 122 poems new to this edition are "Starting from Paumanok," "Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking," and the entire sections "Calamus" and "Enfans d'Adam." The latter includes some of Whitman's then-controversial thoughts on sex, such as~A woman waits for me -- she contains all, nothing is lacking,~Yet all were lacking, if sex were lacking, or if the moisture of the right man were lacking.~This is a copy from the first impression, which consisted of 1000 copies issued in May 1860. This printing is identifiable by the copyright page imprints of both "The Boston Stereotype Foundry" and "George C. Rand & Avery." (There was a second printing issued just six weeks after the first, without those imprints; seven months thereafter, in January 1861, the publisher went bankrupt. In 1879, publisher Richard Worthington bought the third edition plates; he offered Whitman $250 to authenticate another edition and add a few more poems, but Whitman indignantly refused, so during the 1880s Worthington went ahead and issued several unauthorized printings of the 1860-61 edition.)~This copy has the first state of the frontispiece portrait, against a tan background with the engraver's name simply "Schoff." The binding is Blanck's "binding B" (and Myerson's "binding C"), orange-brown zigzag-grain cloth with the globe and sunrise vignettes on the covers (no precedence among the various bindings has been established).~This is a near-fine copy, with only the slightest of shelf-wear; a few gatherings stand slightly proud, and there is some foxing solely on the frontispiece plate; the original grey endpapers remain intact, despite the considerable heft of this 456-page volume. A nice copy of the first edition of LEAVES OF GRASS costs at least $75,000, and the second about $20,000 -- so the third is the earliest edition that is within reach of most collectors. This book does not turn up in much better condition. Myerson A2.3.a1; Blanck 21397.

        Gatherings of a Naturalist in Australasia; being observations principally on the animal and vegetable productions of New South Wales, New Zealand, and some of the Austral Islands

      London: John Van Voorst, 1860. Octavo, with eight chromolithographic plates (including the frontispiece), front inner hinge becoming tender, spine moderately sunned, yet very good overall in the publisher's blind blocked purple cloth. The best general account of Australian natural history at the time of its publication, and still a useful work. Bennett was particularly interested in the Platypus and his account of this extraordinary animal in Gatherings is a classic. "The drawings, with a few exceptions, are from the accurate pencil of Mr. G.F. Angas, well known for his correct delineations of subjects of Natural History..." (Preface).

        [ORIGINAL PUBLISHER'S PROSPECTUS FOR HIME'S Photographs Taken at Lord Selkirk's Settlement on the Red River of the North, To Illustrate a Narrative of the Canadian Exploring Expeditions in Rupert's Land]

      London: J. Hogarth, ca. 1860.. [3]pp. on a single folded sheet. Light foxing. Very good. The Hind expedition of 1858 was the first western survey in North America from which photographs have survived. It was the first expedition on which the wet-plate process - which allowed prints to be made directly from negatives - was successfully used. Two previous expeditions, the Pacific Railroad survey and the Fremont expedition, both of 1853, utilized the daguerreotype process, but with the exception of one unclear image in the Library of Congress attributed to the Railroad survey, no photographs from those earlier surveys have survived. From the Hind expedition, only forty- eight photographs taken by H.L. Hime are known to have survived. Thirty of the best of them were taken by Hime at the Red River settlement in September and October of 1858. These thirty were printed in England and issued by J. Hogarth as a portfolio of thirty original photographs, entitled PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN AT LORD SELKIRK'S SETTLEMENT ON THE RED RIVER OF THE NORTH.... It was intended to supplement Henry Youle Hind's NARRATIVE OF THE CANADIAN RED RIVER EXPLORING EXPEDITION OF 1858... (London, 1860). The portfolio was printed in a small edition and not well distributed. It was published by a different publisher and distributed separately from Hind's two-volume NARRATIVE.... One had to order it directly from the London publisher, J. Hogarth. The portfolio is advertised at the end of the second volume of Hind's NARRATIVE..., with a list of the captions of the thirty photographs. This list also appears as Appendix XIV (pp.434-36). This prospectus precedes all of these appearances of the contents of the portfolio, is likely the first printed source for the contents of the work, and is the only copy of it we have encountered. Very rare. Ralph Greenhill, "Early Canadian Photographer, Humphrey Lloyd Hime" in IMAGE: BULLETIN OF THE GEORGE EASTMAN HOUSE OF PHOTOGRAPHY, Vol. 11, No. 3 (1962), pp.9-11. Richard J.

        Map of the United States, and Territories Together with Canada &c

      Pennsylvania.: S. Augustus Mitchell Jr.. Copyright 1860. [ 1860].. Map, handcolor, 13 1/4 x 21 1/4 inches including decorative border on sheet size 15 1/2 x 24 1/2, centrefold as issued. 1/2 inch split at bottom of centrefold (outside image area), light toning to edges, light scattered foxing (mainly in outer margins). Overall in exceptionally clean and bright condition. A quite beautiful and most extraordinary map showing huge territories in the Western United States just before the area was organised into a formation more familiar to the modern eye. Oregon, California and Texas have formations more or less unchanged from the present day; however the rest of the area west of the central states of Minnesota, Iowa etc is divided between a huge Nebraska, large and elongated Utah, New Mexico, Kansas and Indian Territory. Additionally, Arizona is marked (although not delineated with outline color) in the lower part of New Mexico, most likely noting the public sentiment for a territory of Arizona (which was formed in 1862). West Virginia has not yet seceded from Virginia. A very decorative floral border. Small inset map: Island of Newfoundland. Plate 9 from Mitchell's New General Atlas. .

        The Public Life of Capt John Brown, with an Auto-biography of his Childhood and Youth [Signed]

      Thayer and Eldridge, 1860, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, First editionA Very Good (or mildly less) copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original brown boards, SIGNED BY JAMES REDPATH on the front free endpaper and there placed and dated by him "NY 1861"(mildly askew, boards a bit faded, page block proud, small tide mark to the upper margin of a number of pages -- not invasive of the text, and scattered foxing -- primarily to the early pages). John Brown was a famed American abolitionist who determined that only armed insurrection could eliminate slavery in America. Brown, and abolition were championed by James Redpath, a Scotsman who emigrated to Michigan at age 17 enthralled by the pioneer life. Once in America, Redpath found that farming held no interest for him and that his true love was writing. He wrote passionately, and almost exclusively, about slavery, and his work attracted the attention of the New York Tribune's influential editor Horace Greeley. Greeley invited Redpath to take a job at the Tribune -- where Redpath became an editor at only 19 years of age. In order to know Slavery more fully, Redpath traveled to the American South where he was able to witness the evils of Slavery firsthand. He met and interviewed numerous slaves, publishing his accounts in abolitionist newspapers, further opening the eyes of many Northerners to Slavery's horrors. In 1856, as war over Slavery became a real possibility, Redpath traveled to Kansas and, through his writings published in the New York Tribune and other papers, kept the North abreast of the events there. For example, in one of this dispatches he wrote: "In this region when men went out to plow they always took their rifles with them, and always tilled in companies of from five to ten...Whenever two men approached each other, they came up pistol in hand, and the first salutation invariably was: 'Free State or Proslave?' It not infrequently happened that the next sound was the report of a pistol." After John Brown had allegedly murdered five proslavery men and U.S. troops and Missouri militia were scouring the area for him, Redpath began his own search and was the first to find Brown -- who was hiding in a wooded area. Redpath then was able to interview him, such interview being John Brown's debut in the Press and declaring Brown's innocence of the charges. It was Redpath's report after the battle of Osawatomie approximately three months later, where Brown's group was outnumbered by its attackers approximately 250 to 50, that created Brown's great fame. After the raid at Harper's Ferry -- three years later -- Redpath defended Brown's actions, calling the raid a victory for Brown in that it had rendered Slavery's place in America insecure. Following Brown's execution, Redpath wrote this highly notable Biography. The work was an instant success, selling over 40,000 copies in the first months after its publication. Thus, we have here the most important contemporary Biography of John Brown, signed by James Redpath whose writings revealed the horrors of Slavery to the American North and whose work certainly helped to bring Civil War to the United States and the ultimate abolition of Slavery in that divided nation. Copies of this important book signed by James Redpath are quite scarce. A Very Good copy. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

        Recollections of the Druse of the Lebanon and Notes on Their Religion

      London: John Murray, 1860. First edition. viii, 122, [2] pp. 8vo. Contemporary half calf, spine gilt and lightly sunned, extremities a little rubbed. A very good copy of the scarce first edition. Canarvon served as Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies in 1858-59. Prior to that he visited Syria and Lebanon in the spring of 1853 with Lord Sandon, en route "towards the more eastern parts of Asia Minor." This work begins with an account of the trip where he visited Beirut, Deir el Kamar and Mouktara, before discussing the Druses, who reside primarily in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan. In addition to the description of the religion, Canarvon considers their role in the recent disturbances in Lebanon and their role in the Syrian question.

        Boxing: The 1860 Championship Fight

      New York.: New York Illustrated News.. 1860.. Thirteen issues of the weekly "New-York Illustrated News" for 1860 with copious illustrations drawn by Thomas Nast documenting the bare-knuckle prize-fight between John Heenan and Tom Sayers in Farnborough, England, in which the American Heenan (dubbed the Benicia Boy) was pitted against the British pugilist Sayers. The competition ended after more than two hours when the spectators swarmed into the ring in defense of the badly pummeled Sayers, at which point the match was terminated with referees declaring a draw. The newspapers, 16 pp in length, measure approximately 16 x 12 inches. Three of the thirteen issues are missing several pages (see below). Likely of greatest interest is the issue labelled simply May 1860 (no specific day provided) picturing the two pugilists on the front cover, shaking hands, and a two page centerfold showing the match (17 April 1860) in progress. Extensive text provides "Rules of the English Prize Ring" with a history of prize fights; additional columns report on "Progress of Pugilism in the United States." The fight itself is reported, blow by blow, in over three columns of text. The speed with which the illustrations reached readers of the Illustrated News is trumpeted in text beginning on the first page: Nast reportedly finished the centerfold illustration "within seven hours." The illustration was hustled to Southampton, where wood engravers cut about half the block, the rest being completed on the New York bound ship, allowing for immediate publication of the image upon arrival. "American enterprise has probably never been carried to so extraordinary an extent, nor culminated so successfully." Dates and contents of the remaining issues are given below. March 10, 1860. Half-page portraits each of John C. Heenan ("Champion of the American Prize Ring") and Thomas Sayers ("Champion of the English Prize Ring"). Light tan spotting to Sayers. Half page cartoon on rear cover depicting "The Eagle and the Lion," fists flying. Text reports: "The Illustrated News, alone, will present genuine sketches of the International Combat, no other American illustrated journal being represented in England." March 24, 1860. An installment of the serialization of the career of actress "Adah Isaacs Menken, the Wife of John C. Heenan, the Benecia Boy." This was a bigamous "marriage" on the part of Menken, who in 1861 created a sensation in the play Mazeppa, in which she appeared nude (a flesh colored body stocking) strapped to the back of a horse that carried her up a ramp and off-stage. Also, a paragraph on Thomas Nast, in England to provide illustrations of the Heenan/Sayers competition for the Illustrated News. March 31, 1860. Front page illustration of Thomas Sayers, standing next to his Champion's Belt, watch and chain, and numerous trophies, and an article pertaining to Sayers. Another installment of the serialization of the career of actress "Adah Isaacs Menken, the Wife of John C. Heenan, the Benecia Boy." April 5, 1860. Front page illustration of Nast being received by Heenan at his residence in Wiltshire, where the athlete was in training for the contest. Facsimile letter from Heenan to the Illustrated News attesting to Nast's "very correct" illustrations, and a full page of Nast's correspondence to the editors, recounting incidents of travel. April 14, 1860. Front page illustration depicting Thomas Nast being received in the residence of Thomas Sayers plus illustrations of "the colors" (banners) of each contender. Full page Nast illustration of Sayers' "Residence and Training Quarters" at Newmarket. A large study of Sayers "in his white flannel training costume" on last page. Another installment of the serialization of the career of actress "Adah Isaacs Menken, the Wife of John C. Heenan, the Benecia Boy." April 21, 1860. Half-page illustrations of "Supper at the House of Thomas Sayers" and Sayers with his trainer "taking their daily walk." Also, notes as recorded by Nast regarding Sayers and his residence. Missing pp 363 and 364. April 28, 1860. Front page illustration of Harry Brunton, the "proposed second for Tom Sayers" on the front page, and multiple illustrations over two pages showing sites in London relevant to the upcoming match and "Heenan's Parlor" in his farmhouse residence as rendered by Thomas Nast. PP 375 through 378 missing. May 5, 1860. Twelve pages only, lacking first four pages and text relating to the centerfold illustrations. These depict the arrest of the "Benicia Boy," ostensibly to keep him from competing in the illegal pugilistic contest with English champion Tom Sayers (which had unfolded on 17 April, more than two weeks prior to this illustrated report). May 12, 1860. Front page illustrations show the contestants preparing for the competition and the field where the match was held. Much duplicity was involved to mislead the police, who were intent on scuttling the match. The contest is described from beginning to end in text extending to five columns. A half page illustration depicts Sayers visiting the office of the news journal "Bell's Life" three days after the fight, while above this illustration, Heenan is shown recuperating in bed following the contest. Four and a half columns are devoted to "A Graphic Description of the Great Fight!" June 30, 1860. Front page illustration of Heenan and Sayers "The Champions of England" each wearing the the Champion Belt. A two page centerfold depicts the "Presentation of the belts to Heenan and Sayers at the Alhambra Palace in London," while three columns provide comment on the event and record for posterity orations delivered upon the occasion. July 7, 1860. On the front page, tucked between headlines relating to the Grand Ball to the Japanese Embassy and a view of Auraria, in the Pike's Peak Gold Region, was a banner representing "The Belt of the Champion of England, presented to John C. Heenan." August 25, 1860. A short piece extols "Muscular Christianity" in the face of those clerics who would denounce contests such as the Heenan/Sayers competition, while an illustration covering the bottom half of two pages at center depicts an exhibition at Jones' Wood, NY, on the afternoon of August 13, a mimic recreation of the Heenan/Sayers fight in England. Heenan represented himself, while Charles Ottignon performed the role of Sayers. The two shook hands "Then came the set-to, consisting of seven rounds, occupying seventeen minutes." At the reception following, Heenan was presented with a check in the amount of $10,000. The newspaper concludes: "The whole affair was most completely successful." This collection of weekly newspapers presents a compelling pictorial and descriptive account of events leading up to and including the notorious bout, as well as related activities that followed, thus comprising an uncommon record of boxing's first ever "World Title" International Match. .

        Bildnis eines Knaben, Büste im Dreiviertelprofil nach rechts.

      - Bleistift, weiß gehöht, auf graugrünem Papier, rechts unten signiert, bezeichnet und datiert „Preller fe. Roma, d. 2. Januar 1860", links unten bezeichnet „Domenico Antonio Murgiotti di Picinescu.", unten mittig alter handschriftlicher Besitzvermerk mit zartem Bleistift „Elise Sigismund. Weimar d. 6. Sept. 1881". 44,5:35 cm. Entlang des linken Randes leichte Papierverfärbung, wahrscheinlich ein Wasserrand. In Begleitung seiner Frau Marie, seines Sohnes Friedrich und der Freundin Olinda Bouterweck brach Preller am 25.09.1859 nach Italien auf. Als Standquartier in Rom wurde eine Wohnung bei dem Maler J.M. Wittmer (1802-1880) in der via delle quatro fontane später in der via Porta Pinciana bezogen, von dort aus erfolgten Reisen in die Umgebung von Olevano und nach Neapel (vgl. I. Weinrautner: Friedrich Preller d.Ä. (1804-1878). Leben und Werk, Münster, Diss., Univ. Bonn, 1996, S. 74). Hauptzweck dieser fast eineinhalbjährigen Italien-Reise war, Studien für seinen zweiten berühmten Zyklus der Odyssee-Wandbilder anzufertigen, ein Auftrag des Weimarer Großherzogs Karl Alexander. In seinen Tagebuchaufzeichnungen erwähnt Preller diesen Knaben wie folgt: „Am Morgen des heutigen Tages hatten wir einen schönen Knaben gezeichnet, der so reizend ist, daß wir Alle in ihn verliebt sind. Wo träfe man bei uns auch eine so noble Erscheinung. Der Bengel ist zwölf Jahre alt, lieblich und liebenswürdig zum Entzücken und dabei geweckt und gescheit. Er ist aus den neapolitanischen Bergen, trägt sein schönes Kostüm, aber könnte auch jeden Augenblick einen Prinzen vorstellen, denn Alles an ihm trägt den Stempel seltener Noblesse." (zit. aus: O. Roquette: Friedrich Preller. Ein Lebensbild, Frankfurt a.M. 1883, S. 214 f.). Das auf der Zeichnung erwähnte Dorf Picinesco liegt im Bergzug Ciociaria, der sich von Frosinone Richtung Nordwest nach Latium hinzieht. Er gehörte zum Zeitpunkt der Entstehung der Zeichnung zum Königreich Neapel. Elise Sigismund (1860 Scheibe/Kreis Rudolstadt – Weimar 1938) gehört nicht in das nähere Umfeld von Preller. Wahrscheinlich ist sie verwandt mit Ernst Sigismund, der in den 20er und 30er Jahren des letzten Jahrhunderts Quellenmaterial zu den Dresdener Malern des 19. Jahrhunderts besaß und zahlreiche Beiträge zum Thieme/Becker lieferte. „Wenig bekannt ist Prellers umfangreiches Schaffen als Porträtist. Bereits sein erstes eigenständiges Gemälde, der Eislauf auf dem Schwansee, erregte mit den lebensnahen Bildnissen seiner Freunde das Interesse der Betrachter. Aus seiner Studienzeit in Antwerpen sind einige Bildniszeichnungen seiner Kommilitonen überliefert, besonders aber in Italien war sein Talent gefragt. In den Museen in Weimar und Heidelberg sowie in Privatbesitz haben sich rund 230 Bildniszeichnungen erhalten. Bei der Mehrzahl der Porträts handelt es sich um spontan entstandene Gelegenheitsarbeiten für die Familie und Freunde Prellers. Da Zeichner und Modell einander bekannt waren, sind die Arbeiten in der Mehrzahl nicht bezeichnet und daher oft nicht zu identifizieren." (zit. aus: Weinrautner 1996, S. 97). Wir danken Prof. Dr. M. Lehmann, Konz-Könen, für seine Hilfe bei den Recherchen zu dieser Zeichnung (Brief vom 10.11.2010). Bereits im Alter von 10 Jahren begann Friedrich Preller, dessen Talent von seinen Eltern gefördert wurde, mit Studien an der Weimarer Zeichenschule. 1818 setzte er bei dessen Direktor, dem Maler und Kunstschriftsteller H. Meyer (1760-1832), einem engen Freund und Mitarbeiter Goethes, seine Malstudien fort. 1821 – er hatte sich Geld durch Kolorieren von Stichen für F.J.J. Bertuch (1747-1822) verdient – ging er nach Dresden. Hier begann er mit dem Kopieren von Altmeistergemälden aus der Dresdener Galerie. Erste Fahrten mit anderen Kunststudenten zum Studium der Natur in die nähere Umgebung Dresdens folgten. Durch Goethes Vermittlung – Preller war inzwischen dessen Schützling geworden – lernte er auch C.G. Carus (1789-1869) kennen, der ihn künstlerisch anleitete. Goethe selbst beauftragte Preller nac

        The Pictorial Edition of the Works of Shakspere

      London: Charles Knight and Co.,, [c.1860]. Edited by Charles Knight. 8 volumes, quarto (240 × 162 mm). Twentieth-century burgundy half morocco, titles and roll to spines with raised bands, matching cloth boards, marbled endpapers and edges. With numerous engravings. Some occasional light foxing, spines a little faded and corners slightly rubbed, an excellent set. An attractively bound set of Shakespeare's works. The publisher and writer Charles Knight (1791?-1873) was already a Shakespeare lover and bibliophile in his teens, when he owned an imperfect First Folio which he made up by printing the missing pages from a facsimile edition. "[H]is first major project as an author took shape in 1837, when he resolved to produce a pictorial edition of Shakespeare's works. He started searching for 'authentic' visual materials and began a critical reading of the texts. His edition was based substantially — indeed, too substantially — on the first folio edition, although he made comparisons with other quartos and, in some cases, with originals in the British Museum. His background reading led to a deep interest in Shakespeare's life and the edition, published between 1838 and 1841 (he published six later editions of the works of Shakespeare), was prefaced with a one-volume biography [actually the biography was issued last, in 1843]. Knight succeeded in contextualizing Shakespeare's life as no biographer except Nathan Drake had done, and in dismissing a couple of the more absurd legends surrounding the playwright's early life" (ODNB).

It is self-proclaimed as The Wigwam Edition, after "The Wigwam", the convention hall built at Chicago for the Republicans. [ Wessen Campaign Biography no. 1; Sabin 41200]. It has been alleged that Lincoln may have supplied some of this material. Ernest Wessen identified at least five variants of the imprint for this work, of which this is Variant A.
