        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 .

        Political Debates between Hon. Abraham Lincoln and Hon. Stephen A. Douglas In the Celebrated Campaign of 1858, in Illinois; Including the Preceding Speeches of Each, at Chicago, Springfield, etc.; Also, the Two Great Speeches of Mr. Lincoln in Ohio, in 1859, As Carefully Prepared by the Reporters of Each Party, and Published at the Times of Their Delivery

      Follett, Foster and Company, Columbus, Ohio 1860 - Very good hardcover copy of "Political Debates between Hon. Abraham Lincoln and Hon. Stephen A. Douglas In the Celebrated Campaign of 1858, in Illinois; Including the Preceding Speeches of Each, at Chicago, Springfield, etc.; Also, the Two Great Speeches of Mr. Lincoln in Ohio, in 1859, As Carefully Prepared by the Reporters of Each Party, and Published at the Times of Their Delivery". Included is a typed transcript (date uncertain) of a two-page letter sent from a man in Memphis to his wife on April 17th, 1865, the day after President Lincoln was shot. It gives details of the happenings in Memphis on that day and the general mood of the city's inhabitants as well as the specific feelings of the writer. This edition of the book is the same as the first minus the blind stamped floral design in the corners of the stamping on the front cover. The rest is the same. Gilt lettering on spine dulled. The cloth at the top edge of the spine has come loose about 1/2 inch on both sides. Rubbing on the covers. Top fore corner worn and slightly upturned. Foxing from minor to moderate depending on the section of the book. Previous owner stamp on front paste-down and signature on front free end paper. Spine otherwise solid and pages otherwise clean. I do not have access to the bibliography of works about Lincoln. My research makes me think this is the second edition or the first printing of the third edition. All Follett editions were printed in 1860. The '2' is at the bottom of page 13. There is a rule above the publisher's mark on the copyright page. Two pages of advertisements in the front. This book of debates sold amazingly well for political writings of the not-particularly-literate time period and absolutely affected Lincoln's chances for winning the presidency. Remember, these debates were not presidential debates, but debates for a Senate seat from Illinois. Enjoy these two pieces of American history! For Sale. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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.

From jointing the army in Cincinnati he moved from Forts in more civilized areas to those which were part of what was known as the "hostile Indian frontier" During the 1860's, the U.S. Army in New Mexico announced a war of extermination against the Apaches and Navahos. ;He writes specifically about his time in Fort Wingate where every night both the Utes and Apaches give out terrible yells while the soldiers all sleep on their carbines, revolvers, sabres and fully clothed ready to mount their horses in a moment's notice.

        Recent Practice in the Locomotive Engine

      Glasgow.: Blackie and Son.. First Edition.. 1860.. A publication issued in ten parts; original paper wrappers 15 x 11 inches, each part with two folding plates 15 x 20.5 inches save No. 10 which has a third plate, 15 x 10.5 inches; total 21 plates. Eighty-four pages of text, including a section "Descriptions of Large Engravings." The string binding of No. 10 perished; in addition to the last 12 pages of text this number contains the Title Page, Preface, Table of Contents, List of Plates, List of Wood Engravings, Index, and Instructions to the Binder. Light foxing to plates; text generally clean with light toning. The text on the paper wraps reads: "Recent Practice in the Locomotive Engine: (Being a Supplement to 'Railway Machinery,' Comprising the Latest English Improvements, and a Treatise on the Locomotive Engines of the United States. Illustrated by a Series of Plates and Numerous Engravings on Wood." The 20 folding plates depict locomotives belonging to railroads in England, Scotland, Egypt and the United States. The titles for the US equipment are: "Wood-Burning Passenger Locomotive by Wm. Mason & Co. Taunton, Mass. U.S."; "Passenger Locomotive by Danforth, Cook & Co., Paterson, New Jersey, for the Delaware, Lackawanna, & Western Railroad, U.S."; "American Locomotives--Cross Sections. Baltimore & Ohio Railway"; "Freight Engine, by M. W. Baldwin & Co. Philadelphia, U.S." A single page plate titled "Illustrations of American Locomotives as Carriages" depicts, through profiles rendered in outline, 36 American locomotives with the object of creating an historical overview that begins with a locomotive from 1837. A note in the final volume advises: "The plates are numbered in continuation of the Series in the Author's work on Railway Machinery," which explains numeration from 31 through 50 for the twenty folding plates. A scarce first edition, in paper wraps as issued; overall good clean condition with faults noted. .

        A day before his last Fourth of July as a U.S. Citizen, Jefferson Davis signs his autograph as Your fellow Citizen Jeffer Davis

      n.p., July 3, 1860. 4" x 2". "Autograph Note Signed ""Jeffer Davis,"" 1p, 4"" x 2"", affixed to an 8.5"" x 4.25"" light brown sheet of paper, beneath a 4.25"" x 6"" printed Mathew Brady image of Davis. Light stain at upper left. Horizontal folds not on autograph sheet.In full, ""July 3. 1860 / I am Sir very respectfully / your fellow Citizen / Jeffer Davis."" Ostensibly in response to an autograph request.At the Democratic National Convention held in Charleston, South Carolina, April 23-28, 30 and May 1-3, 1860, Mississippi Senator Jefferson Davis received 1.5 votes on the first ballot. By the 57th ballot, his total was down to 1. With no nominee, the Democrats moved their convention to Baltimore, June 18-23, 1860, and Stephen A. Douglas was nominated on the 2nd ballot; Davis had no votes.Eight days after the 1860 Democratic National Convention adjourned, Jefferson Davis wrote the note here offered. Davis campaigned for the Southern Democratic Party presidential nominee, Buchanan's Vice President, Kentuckian John C. Breckinridge who finished second to Lincoln, winning the electoral votes of nine future Confederate states and slave states Delaware and Maryland.By the Fourth of July, 1861, Jefferson Davis considered himself a citizen of the Confederate States of America. He began his February 18, 1861, Inaugural Address as President of the Confederacy, ""Gentlemen of the Congress of the Confederate States of America, Friends and Fellow-Citizens."" 117 years later, Jefferson Davis was posthumously restored to the full rights of U.S. citizenship, effective December 25, 1868, pursuant to a Joint Resolution of Congress (Public Law 95-466), approved October 17, 1978."

        Manuscript Herbarium, with Specimens

      West Virginia, 1860. Hardcover. Fine. Half gilt-ruled morocco and marbled paper over boards; 200 x 260 mm; approx. pp. 200, handwritten throughout in black ink in tidy script, plus 87 flower specimens (and one page with 9 leaves) mounted direct to the recto. Boards scuffed; spine tips and corners chipped. Internally very pretty, and specimens are in excellent condition. The work of Fanny Evelyn Chilton, with her signature and "Gilboa, Aug. 17th --60" on the FFEP. Two more hands contribute a history of this volume, on the verso of the FFEP, which reads, in part: "It came into possession of her niece Eliza Quarrier Chilton, and in the year 1921 of her grand neice Lettie Fisher Lynn of [illegible], in the state of Washington." In another hand, "I, Lettie F. Lynn pass it on to Anne Brainerd Lynn, great great great niece of Fannie Evelyn Chilton... February 1937." With the exception of these historical notes, the entire volume is in Fanny's careful hand -- the first ten pages contain a short introduction, "botanical explanations," classes and orders, orders of plants, and poisonous plants -- then the specimens follow. Specimens are labelled with the Latin and common name, the class and order, plus notes about the specimen (sometimes something about its origin, its medicinal uses, flowering habit, or connected myths) -- and Fanny has scattered quotes and poems throughout, the majority in English, with just a few in French. Includes fuschia, salvia, helianthus, oak of Jerusalem, chrysanthemum, petunia, hawthorne, primrose, and many more.

        Manly (View to the Heads)

      Sydney: circa, 1860. Pencil & wash, 250 x 350 mm.; on verso in pencil 'Manly by Clara Allport about 1860', few foxing spots otherwise good condition. Fine and most attractive working study for a fuller watercolour held at the Allport Library Hobart. Clara Allport (1843-1907) was the daughter of watercolourist Henry Curzon Allport.
