        Notes on Nursing: What it is, and what it is not.

      London: Harrison, [1860]. FIRST EDITION, slim octavo (21 x 14cm), pp. 79; [1], imprint; [1], blank. With printed advertisement endpapers on glazed yellow paper, listing 'Burke's Peerage, 1860' and 'The Foreign Office List for 1860'. Printed note on title-page '[The right of Translation is reserved]'. Publisher's stipple-grained dark brown limp cloth, gilt titles to upper board. Internally clean but for a news-clipping offprint to preface (three loose clippings from 'The Scotsman' dated 1899, 1907 and 1908, and one from the Daily Mail dated 1910, still present), spine frayed at joint else a particularly fresh copy of this notoriously fragile reference book. A terribly complex book, bibliographically speaking; Victor Skretkowicz, who studied over 100 copies and found a vast array of variations in binding, end-paper shade and type setting, as well as textual differences, concludes that 'given the considerable number of different states of each inner and outer form in every sheet, the idea of attempting to establish with certainty any specific `issue' of `Notes on Nursing' beyond the first is utterly impractical (The Library, March 1993).

        Speech of Hon. Sam Houston, of Texas, Exposing the Malfeasance and Corruption of John Charles Watrous, Judge of the Federal Court in Texas, and of His Confederates. Delivered in the Senate of the United States, Feb. 3, 1859

      Pudney & Russell, New York 1860 - Approximately 5" x 7.5". Complete with iii introductory pages including the half-title, tissue-protected frontispiece portrait of Sam Houston, and 100 text pages. Marbled paper covered boards with later half-cloth spine covering. Bright gilt lettering on spine. Very good condition. Sound binding with intact hinges. All pages and frontispiece are attached; a blank front flyleaf is just starting to detach. See Howes H-690. Watrous arrived in Texas in 1837 and soon became involved in several land companies as a lawyer, shareholder, and part owner. He became the Texas attorney general in 1838, but only served two years when conflicts arose between his public duty and land company entanglements. He soon became a legal advisor for the Peters Colony of the Texas Land and Emigration Company and remained in that position until 1846 when he pulled strings with an old friend, the new President, James K. Polk, to secure an appointment as a U.S. District Judge. Both Texas senators and many other Texas politicians opposed his appointment in part because they favored another candidate, but primarily because of personal, vested connection with land speculators and charges, unproven but likely true, that he had attempted to validate forged land certificates. The House of Representatives initiated impeachment hearings in 1851, however the case against him was eventually dropped in 1858. His opponents continued their campaign against Watrous, and Senator Sam Houston's vitriolic and convincing attack upon him in this speech on the Senate floor in 1859 convinced many the charges were true, and impeachment hearings were reinitiated, but once more the investigation was dropped when Congress adjourned in the Spring of 1861 as the Civil War began. Throughout the war, Watrous was denied a seat on the bench by the Confederate government but he resumed his old position in 1865 and served until 1869 when medical problems forced him to resign. Quite scarce. As of 2017, the Rare Book Hub shows only one auction record and no examples are currently available for sale. OCLC shows many digital and reprint copies but only one original book, which is held by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. [Attributes: First Edition; 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. First printing of second edition. "Tenth Thousand". Cloth. Very good. xv, 519, 32 p. 21 cm. 11 b&w wood engravings and diagrams within text. Green cloth hardcover with blank impressing. Spine ends repaired. Corners bumped. Dents in tops of boards. Bookplate, ink signature, and small label on front pastedown and ink notation on rear. Hinges repaired internally. Initials across from title page and ink mark on margin of xiv. Darwin's first published book is also his most read and stands second only to "The Origin of Species" as the most printed. Usually referred to today as the "Voyage of the Beagle" it makes for interesting reading as a travel book as well as a scientifc text. Darwin actually spent as little time as possible on board the Beagle; he was miserably sea-sick and preferred extensive expeditions on land. Those excursions allowed him to describe the "savages" of South America, the Great Tortoises of the Galapagos, Australian convicts, and the cruelties of slavery. This printing is the final definitive text with the first appearance of the Postscript on p. vii dated February 1, 1860, in which Darwin corrects a few errors. This is also the first publishing in the green cloth binding in the same style as the first three John Murray editions of "On the Origin of Species." 32 pages of publisher's advertising at rear dated January 1860 show the variety of Murray's published works.

        Two Autograph Letters Signed and a MS Memorial Signed by American Poet Lydia Sigourney; discussing one of her earliest writings; With Related Items

      Hartford [Connecticut], 1860. Overall Very Good. Collection, viz., 1. 2 ALsS, 5-pages, total, written by Lydia H. Sigourney. 2. One four-page Memorial Essay Ms., written by Lydia H. Sigourney. 3. 1 two-page ALS by Mary H. Sigourney (offsetting and browning to first page). 4. An Anonymous MS. Poem, 1-pageEach letter and the poem accompanied by an envelope. American author and poet Lydia Huntley Sigourney (1791-1865) was one of the most widely read women writers of the ante-bellum period. "It is almost impossible to find a number of one of the popular magazines of the [eighteen] thirties or forties that does not contain a poem or an article by her..." [DAB] Sigourney, who was known as the "Sweet Singer of Hartford," published most of her works under the name "Mrs. Sigourney." Among her publishers was Edgar Allan Poe. The present group of letters and manuscripts includes two autograph letters signed by Lydia H. Sigourney and a memorial essay, "Miss Helen Talcott," written by, copied out, and signed by Lydia H. Sigourney. Here, Sigourney's writings are on the topic of death or memory. The DAB notes that "[t]he theme of most of her writing is death. The inevitable regularity with which her poetic tribute followed the demise of any prominent person led a wag to declare she had added a new terror to death." In a letter to Mr. & Mrs. Henry S. Tudor, who are grieving the death of their first child, Mrs. Sigourney offers her "...sympathy in this deep affliction of the removal of your first-born..." She makes them a gift of a book (possibly one of her own works): I ask your acceptance of the accompanying book, and should its daily voice of text and poem ever speak soothingly to your hearts it will be gratifying to your own, and your Parents' friend, L.H. Sigourney. In her letter to Judge Nathaniel Goodwin, Sigourney refers to one of her early writings, a biographical sketch: But I ought not thus to have deferred my acknowledgements for your emendations, and improvements of the poor, biographical sketch submitted to your judgment. I ought in justice to myself to say, that it was never intended as a historical article,-but only as a simple illustration of the piety of the reverend subject;-and was, if I recollect right, abridged from a religious magazine conducted by the Revd. Dr. N. Strong, and originally written, while I was a young girl, in school here to the ancient Miss Patten. Sigourney's 4-page biographical, memorial essay "Miss Helen Talcott" appears to be praise of an elderly resident of Hartford: Books were a source of never-failing delight, and an extensive range of English and French literature was systematically pursued and digested. There were few more frequent applicants at the excellent Library of our Institute, and none where selection was more rational and refined.The essay, according to Sigourney's concluding note, was "[c]opied for Miss Mary Layman with the love of her friend L.H.S." It may be unpublished and it bears the dateline of Hartford. September 2nd, 1856. Sigourney's letters and her manuscript are accompanied by two additional items: a letter to Judge Goodwin from Mrs. Sigourney's daughter, Mary H. Sigourney, and a poem, by an unknown author, found with this collection, entitled "To H.B. Tudor" (Mrs. H.S. Tudor). Mary Sigourney's letter concerns her efforts to help a poor, sick Irishman, James Flood: My mother has told me that I have permission to inform you occasionally when I find cases of suffering among the poor. ... [Flood] has been induced to believe, that if he could go to the Hospital in New-York, he might be cured... Dr. Holmes has attended him,-and Father Brady gives him a certificate of good character & the promise of little aid. This small cache of letters and the manuscript by Lydia H. Sigourney and the letter from her daughter lend interesting insights to both Mrs. Sigourney's early writing and to her declining years in Hartford.

        TOWN AND HARBOUR OF ST. THOMAS, WEST INDIES, LATELY PURCHASED BY THE UNITED STATES [caption title].

      London. [s]. 1860 - Hand-colored woodcut print, 53 x 18 cm., on black lined white mat, 50 x 76 cm. A fine image. A large and attractive print depicting a fleet of five square riggers resting in the calm harbor of Charlotte Amalie, Danish Virgin Islands. The ships' masts reflect downward into the smooth blue waters with only a few sails raised, perhaps to dry. Drooping flags surmount the ship's tall spars. Natives are shown in a small rowboat in the foreground. A wharf extends from the island with people walking the shoreline there, and other ships lie farther toward the shore. A half circle of mountains dip their base into the blue-green waters of the harbor, their tops skirting the horizon, making a perfect backdrop for this somnolent scene.

        THE MARBLE FAUN: OR, THE ROMANCE OF MONTE BENI

      Ticknor and Fields, Boston 1860 - 188 x 120 mm. (7 3/8 x 4 3/4"). With 16 pp. ads (dated March 1860) in volume I. Two volumes. FIRST EDITION, Second State (with ads dated March instead of February). EXCELLENT LATE 19TH CENTURY GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO BY BRADSTREET'S (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers bordered by gilt double fillets with a gilt dot at each corner, this design repeated on the spine compartments, raised bands, gilt titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins with a floral sprig at corners, top edges gilt. Front flyleaf WITH AN INLAID SLIP INSCRIBED BY HAWTHORNE as a customs officer: "Examined / Nat'l Hawthorne / Surveyer." Bruccoli & Clark I, 173; BAL 7621. Leaves a little toned, occasional small spots, a couple of leaves with uneven fore edge from rough opening, otherwise A FINE COPY, the text clean and fresh IN A LUSTROUS BINDING WITH NO SIGNS OF WEAR. Offered here in a beautiful binding from a leading American workshop, this is an especially agreeable copy of Hawthorne's last completed novel, the principal fictive product of the author's European residence from 1853-60, and probably the most brooding, Romantic, and distinctive major work in the Hawthorne canon. One of the major figures in the history of literature in the United States, Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-64) was among those who first inspired the idea of "American literature," a national literature that could take its place alongside its long-established European forebears. Probably more than any other writer of stature in 19th century America, Hawthorne combined vivid imagination with careful, structured craft. Our handsome bindings were executed at Bradstreet's, which ranked with Stikeman as one of the leading binderies in turn-of-the-century New York. In his "Historical Essay on the Art of Bookbinding," Henri Pène du Bois notes that "there is a solidity, strength and squareness of workmanship about the books of the Bradstreet bindery which seem to convince that they may be tossed" from the summit of a mountain "without detriment or serious injury." Certainly our volumes are testament to the durability of Bradstreet bindings: after more than 100 years, they show no evidence of wear--not even the sunning that almost universally afflicts spines of green morocco. The autograph material at the front of the book here comes from the period when Hawthorne worked weighing and measuring coal, salt, and other goods at the customs house in Boston from 1839-41.

        The lake regions of Central Africa. A picture of exploration.

      London Longman 1860 - First edition, two volumes, 8vo., xviii, 412; viii, 468 pp., twelve tinted woodcut plates, twenty-two woodcut illustrations in the text, folding tinted map, original red cloth gilt, neat repairs to extremities, a very good set. One of the most important Burton titles, considered by many to be his best piece of writing. Burton travelled with Speke on their second journey together in order to find the Jebel Kumri, or the "Mountains of the Moon." They made a brief examination of Lake Tanganyika, but with failing health they were forced to return to Kazeh to recuperate. Following this, Burton sent Speke off by himself to investigate a large lake. Speke became convinced that this was the source of the Nile; a conclusion disputed by Burton which led to their falling out and, probably, Speke's mysterious death. This work contains Burton's first attack on Speke in print. Penzer pp67-68. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE MARBLE FAUN: OR, THE ROMANCE OF MONTE BENI

      Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1860. FIRST EDITION, Second State (with ads dated March instead of February). Offered here in a beautiful binding from a leading American workshop, this is an especially agreeable copy of Hawthorne's last completed novel, the principal fictive product of the author's European residence from 1853-60, and probably the most brooding, Romantic, and distinctive major work in the Hawthorne canon. One of the major figures in the history of literature in the United States, Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-64) was among those who first inspired the idea of "American literature," a national literature that could take its place alongside its long-established European forebears. Probably more than any other writer of stature in 19th century America, Hawthorne combined vivid imagination with careful, structured craft. Our handsome bindings were executed at Bradstreet's, which ranked with Stikeman as one of the leading binderies in turn-of-the-century New York.

The second edition "can be recognised immediately by the date, by the words 'fifth thousand', and the correct spelling of 'Linnean' on the title page … The misprint 'speceies' is corrected and the whale-bear story diluted, an alteration which Darwin later regretted, although he never restored the full text. The story is not found again in any printing, except in the American editions of 1860, until the end of copyright".

        Photograph portrait of Lincoln and his sons Willie and Tad at their home in Springfield, Illinois

      Boston: J. A. Whipple 1860 - Albumen print (13 1⁄4 x 11 1⁄2 in.), original printed mount with Whipple imprint and title “Home of Abraham Lincoln,” early erroneous inscription “Original photograph made in 1858 or 1859.” Minor wear and soiling, crease at upper right. Abraham Lincoln at his home in Springfield. “Lincoln stands on the terrace of the only house he ever owned. He called it his ‘little brown cottage’ and bought it for $1500 in 1844 from the Reverend Charles Dresser, an Episcopal rector who had married the Lincolns in 1842. Here Lincoln’s sons Eddie, Willie, and Tad were born, and here he was living when elected President” (Ostendorf). Lincoln stands with his sons Willie and Tad, who is barely visible behind a post. Lincoln left Springfield for Washington on February 11, 1861. In his farewell address, he told the people of Springfield, “My friends, no one, not in my situation, can appreciate my feeling of sadness at this parting. To this place, and the kindness of these people, I owe everything. Here I have lived a quarter of a century, and have passed from a young to an old man. Here my children have been born, and one is buried. I now leave, not knowing when, or whether ever, I may return, with a task before me greater than that which rested upon Washington. Without the assistance of the Divine Being who ever attended him, I cannot succeed. With that assistance I cannot fail. Trusting in Him who can go with me, and remain with you, and be everywhere for good, let us confidently hope that all will yet be well. To His care commending you, as I hope in your prayers you will commend me, I bid you an affectionate farewell.” The photographer, John Adams Whipple (1822-1891) was a pioneering American photographer and inventor who owned a successful photography studio in Boston. “Whipple was instrumental in the development of the glass negative/paper positive process in America” (Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography). Lincoln was chosen as the Republican nominee for the presidency on May 18, 1860. Whipple journeyed to Illinois that summer to photograph the rising political star at his home in Springfield. This rare large-format print bears Whipple’s imprint and address. Large-format photographs of Abraham Lincoln and his family are rare. Ostendorf, Lincoln’s Photographs O-38.

'The plates each depict moths grouped around flowers, grasses, and foliage on which caterpillars can also be seen. Amongst the moths are Death's Head Hawk-moth, Tiger Moths, Red Underwings, Eggars, Puss Moth, Marsh and Ghost Moths and many others. The printing of the plates is very light and, therefore, the bright almost gaudy colouring means that these plates are near to being original watercolour paintings.' D. Dunbar.] . First Edition.

      No Place (Washington?) ,(N.D.). No Date (1860) 1st edition. No cover, as issued, with simple caption title at top, 8vo, 32 pages. The first Jew to serve in the U. S. Senate who did not renounce his Judaism, and future secretary of State for the Confederacy, Louisiana Senator Benjamin levels both barrels at Senator Stephen A. Douglas and his Popular Sovereignty doctrine. An important marker in the dismantling of the National Democratic Party. Signaling Southern repudiation of the Illinois Senator as the Democratic Party's presidential candidate, Benjamin argues that the South will be satisfied only by guarantees for the protection of slavery-- regardless of popular feeling-- in the Territories. In the course of arraigning Douglas, Benjamin discusses in some detail the former's debates with Abraham Lincoln in the Illinois senatorial contest two years earlier (the famous the "Lincoln-Douglas Debates") . Sabin; 4701. SUBJECT(S) : Campaign literature -- United States. Slavery -- United States -- Extension to the territories. Presidents -- United States -- Election -- 1860. Campaign literature.

A very good copy. Rare Czech alphabet book for little children, with thirty lithographed plates featuring a letter of the alphabet, printed in blue and red in various typefaces, accompanied by an illustration and captions in Czech and German.

The printed section lists sample syllables and longer sentences for basic reading and recitation practice, an overview of the ABC and a multiplication table. One of the earliest Czech alphabet books, published in the South Bohemian province by the publisher Alois Landfras, an important figure in Czech publishing during the period of national awakening. According to the Czech National Library catalog, the book was published between 1860 and 1864.

Following that is a lively series of images capturing Bentinck Street, Chilpore Road, several of the B.Y. Docks, and another group of views near Khaligat and Barnatore. Of greater interest still is the final group of portraits that shows beggars, palki bearers, a barber and concludes with a group shot of Rohillas.
