"In 1819, carrying letters of introduction from Sir Joseph Banks, Loudon visited France, Italy, Switzerland, and the Low Countries to gather material for a proposed Encyclopaedia of Gardening. The book was published in 1822 as an octavo of nearly 1500 pages, covering plant culture, botany, garden design, and an international survey and history of gardening. It went through six editions, with varying degrees of revision and expansion, during Loudon's lifetime, and posthumous editions continued to appear into the 1870s" (ODNB). A truly stunning copy in the lovely original cloth binding.

        POLITICAL RECORD OF STEPHEN A. DOUGLAS ON THE SLAVERY QUESTION. A TRACT ISSUED BY THE ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE. THIRD EDITION, REVISED AND ENLARGED. CONTENTS. PART I., ANTI-SLAVERY. PART II., PRO- SLAVERY. PART III., MISCELLANEOUS.

      [Springfield? Chicago?: 1860 - Uncut and untrimmed folio leaf, folded to 16pp. Light wear and dust, printer's flaw affecting a few letters, else Very Good. This Illinois campaign document is one of three variant printings, each with similar material, but with some differences. Each attacks Douglas for hypocrisy on the question of Congressional power to control slavery in the Territories. Each paints him as an extreme Southern Rights partisan, supporting the Dred Scott Decision and scuttling the Missouri Compromise. This "revised and enlarged" printing contains several additional short sections, with captions, not found in the first edition. Some of these include: "He Distinctly Asserts the Right of Congress to Govern the Territories;" "He Says the People of the Northwest were Conscientiously Opposed to Slavery;" "He Believes in the Higher Law;" "Popular Sovereignty in the Nebraska Bill;" "He Resolves Never to Make Another Speech on the Slavery Question;" "He Urges that Slavery Should Last Forever;" "He says the Almighty has Required the Existence of Slavery." In his early public career, Douglas had extolled the immutable nature of the 1820 Missouri Compromise, and insisted that Congress had full power over the Territories. But in 1854, leading the Kansas-Nebraska Act forces and advocating Popular Sovereignty, he changed horses: only a Territory's inhabitants could decide whether to bar slavery within its borders. His attempt to reconcile the Dred Scott Decision with Popular Sovereignty, and his unconcern with slavery as a social and moral question, are mocked and scorned. LCP 8794. Sabin 20696n.

        Manuscript map of Roxbury Vermont

      [ Roxbury, Vermont ], 1860. First Edition. Good. First Edition. An inked manuscript map of Roxbury Vermont on a thick blotter like paper. 17 x 14 1/2 inches edge to edge. There are four large edge chips ans some water damage, affecting the content. It includes 176 identifiable names laid out in a mostly square grid pattern. There are another 30 or so names that are partially missing or have water staining making clear reading difficult if not impossible. There are, in addition to inked names, penciled numbers in some grids - the purpose is unknown. Roxbury VT was founded in August 1781. We were able to determine this manuscript map was the town of Roxbury VT by comparing the names on the map to references online and in "The History of the Towns of Plainfield, Roxbury, and Fayston [Vermont], Montpelier, VT, 1882 (a few copied pages provided with matches highlighted). The rear of the map notes "Elijah Winch Plann of Roxbury". Those same references helped us find Elijah, who was a Town Selectmen in 1851, 58, and 1860. And a constable and collector of taxes in 1843. And a "Lister" in 1845, '57, '62, and 1863. He was also a Justice of the Peace in 1850, 51, 52, 53, 57, 58, 62, and 44. Finally he was a town representative in 1854. As a Lister (definition from Colonial Occupation webpage) he would have been responsible for tracking property and related taxes. How closely this document relates to an actual layout of the town would be a fascinating research project, if comparables could even be found. A useful tool for reviewing early town layouts, genealogical records, and related scholarship.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Heidelberg u. Breslau, 14. X. 1860.. 3 S., 8°.. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - "[...] In Betreff des Spectralapparats war ich mit Kirchhoff vor zwei Monaten in München, um mit [Carl August von] Steinheil über die beste Einrichtung zu conferiren, und einen Apparat für mich zu bestellen, dessen Preis er zu 150 Gulden Rheinisch veranschlagt hat. Er wird uns den Apparat noch ehe er ganz fertig ist hierher senden, damit wir erst die nöthigen Prüfungen und Abänderungen mit demselben [?] vornehmen können.

Mit Hilfe der Spektroskopie konnten bei der Erhitzung chemischer Substanzen in Flammen die charakteristischen Spektrallinien untersucht werden. Zu diesem Zweck perfektionierte Bunsen einen besonderen Gasbrenner, der zuvor durch Michael Faraday erfunden worden war und später den Namen Bunsens erhalten sollte [...]" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. -

        Leaves of Grass

      Thayer and Eldridge 1860 - Thayer and Eldridge, Boston:, 1860. Third edition. The scarce first issue of the third edition of Leaves of Grass, with the tinted frontispiece portrait of Whitman (an engraving by Stephen Alonzo Schoff from an oil painting portrait by Charles Hine), and the printer's name on the verso of the title page ("Electrotyped at the Boston Stereotype Foundry. Printed by George C. Rand & Avery"). Third edition, expanded, first state of the frontispiece. Only 1000 copies printed. This third edition, preceded by Whitman's self- published editions of 1855 and 1856, was enlarged to 456 pages, adding 122 new poems, including "Starting from Paumanok" and "Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking," and two new sections, "Calamus" and "Children of Adam." Rebound in handsome ornately decorated leather. Rear hinge professionally repaired. The poems are arranged in 7 "clusters": 'Chants Democratic and Native American', with an introductory poem 'Apostroph'; 'Leaves of Grass'; 'Enfans d'Adam'; 'Calamus'; 'Messenger Leaves'; 'Thoughts'; 'Says'; 'Debris'; and 26 individual poems including 'Walt Whitman', 'A Word Out of the Sea' (later titled 'Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking'). The volume commences with 'Proto-Leaf', which was later called 'Starting from Paumanok'. According to the Walt Whitman archive, "The significance of the 1860 edition of Leaves of Grass tends to be paradoxical. Although the poems often express grief over romantic and professional failures, the book's new sense of structure, the sizable increase in poems, its wider readership and critical praise made it one of Whitman's most successful books. Although the poems seem more intimate and personal than previous Whitman poems, the third edition is also a deliberate intervention into public life, an attempt to realize American democratic ideals and save the Union." 8vo, iv, 456pp. $950.

        Collection of 400 Photographs from a Camden, New Jersey Family

      Camden, New Jersey. 1860-1960s. A collection of more than 400 photos from a Camden, New Jersey family including 40 Civil War-era tintypes, 30 cabinet cards, and the rest various different format photographs taken between 1900 and the early 1960s, various sizes and with a few back marks from Virginia, but most from the Philadelphia, Camden, and Trenton areas. The photos are generally very good or better with some photos clipped at the corners from mounting, wear to some of the edges, and a few of the tintypes darkening or with their finish peeling. The photos feature matron Mary A. Fleming and the extended families of her daughters Elizabeth Nardin, Bessie W. Steelman, and Emma Gordon, including their husbands, children, and relations in various formal and candid shots: posing with pets, laughing with friends, kids playing, a flood, a house being built (likely due to the flood), and others. Of note are about a dozen military-related photographs featuring: six Civil War soldiers each posing in uniform; four of World War I soldiers in formation and training; a group shot of World War II sailors posing on the deck of a ship; and four of USO entertainers performing at an army hospital. The photos are accompanied by a few handwritten notes referencing various family members, as well as what was once a red velvet photo album, now only a tattered remnant of its former self, with a handful of additional scattered photos still intact. A nice collection of photos documenting 100 years of a New Jersey family's history. .

        Political Debates between Hon. Abraham Lincoln and Hon. Stephen A. Douglas,

      Columbus: Follett, Foster and Company,, 1860. 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. Octavo. Publisher's brown blind-stamped cloth,gilt lettered spine. Blue cloth chemise and slipcase. A few spots of foxing to title page. Copies in the original cloth are commonly found in shabby condition, this one is remarkably fresh and unsullied. A fine copy. First edition of the text of the debates that were Lincoln's springboard to fame. The Lincoln?-Douglas debates are unquestionably the most famous, and most important, of such confrontations to have been staged in the history of American politics. The candidates' sharp exchanges helped to polarise sectional attitudes towards slavery, and - although Lincoln lost the 1858 Illinois Senate race of which they were a part - the debates catapulted Lincoln towards the 1860 presidential nomination, and into the White House. The text of the Lincoln?-Douglas Debates was set from Lincoln's own scrapbook - now in the Library of Congress - of clippings of the candidates' remarks as reported by the Chicago Press & Tribune (for the Republican Lincoln), and by the Chicago Times (for the Democrat Douglas). When published as a presidential campaign tool in April 1860, the collected speeches became a best-seller, and by the time of Lincoln's official nomination, some 30,000 copies were in circulation. Our copy is inscribed discreetly in pencil on one of the blank leaves at the end: "George Wolford/ May - 1860"; this is almost certainly the New York Republican Assemblyman of the same name who stood in the 81st New York State Legislature in 1858, giving this copy a marvellous contemporary resonance. A stunning copy of one of the most celebrated publications in American political history.

        PARTIE DU PORT-LOUIS [manuscript title].

      [N.p., but almost certainly Port Louis. circa 1860.] - Manuscript map, 15 1/4 x 25 1/2 on drafting linen. Handcolored. Old folds. Minor wear and soiling. Browned. Near fine. Manuscript plan of Port Louis on the island of Mauritius. The legend contains sixteen lettered items, including the fortifications and government buildings, as well as several buildings which are denoted on the map with a dotted line, indicating future rather than current structures. Government buildings and fortifications are colored red. This would seem to be a later copy of an earlier map of the city, evidently showing the town and fortifications as they were in 1769, when the French East India Company had just taken over. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce.

        "Brown tries his new Hack, which is as quiet as a Lamb,-just about!"

      London, [c. 1860]. 6-3/4 x 9 in. Pencil and watercolor on paper, mounted in a larger sheet of paper. Matted and framed . Relates to Leech's series of riding cartoons in the magazine Punch. John Leech (1817-1864) was one of the most prolific and successful of the English artists and caricaturists of the mid 19th century. "His humour was like his talent, gentle, warm-hearted and positive, his world, the ups and downs of middle class life, the sports of the squirearchy, and the peccadilloes of army officers and undergraduates" (Houfe). The conventions of social humor he established with his first contributions to the newly founded Punch, in 1841, lasted into the 1920s, but his greatest fame came through his book illustrations, particularly those for Surtees's sporting novels. "Extravagantly praised by Ruskin, Leech's often careless but never crude drawings have survived in charm and humour to give us a refreshing glimpse of mid-Victorian society." (Houfe)

        Notes on Nursing second edition

      Nightingale's book was prepared 1959 and published 1960. It has 79 pages and was intended for the untrained nurse. In that same year, 1960, Harrison published an edition designed for the medical profession. It was published at two shillings in the cheaper edition and at six shillings, the de luxe edition with St. Michael crosses on all four corners of the board. My copy is the de luxe; six shillings then had a purchasing power equal to twenty pounds today. That first (79-page) edition has been republished over and over again. The second edition  was issued in much smaller quantity (2,000 is the figure oft quoted) and is consequently much rarer today. I show as many scans as the site will accept and at the highest definition the site will accept. The brown fep has that old-fashioned "WARNING" label, with a BOOKSALE stamp on it. There is a library stamp on title page and on Preface page a stamp and a "stacks" manuscript inscription. The binding is heavil rubbed, the spine scraped, abd corners bumped. I show scans of front, back, sub-title page, damage at top of spine, and title page without the library mark

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Wien, 27. XI. 1860. - 2¾ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-4to. An einen Autor, dem er für eine Schrift "zu Gunsten der Farbenlehre" Goethes dankt: "Es wird Eurer Hochwohlgeboren unerklärlich gewesen seyn, daß Sie bis jetzt von mir noch kein Wort des Dankes für die freundliche Uebersendung der Schrift zu Gunsten der Farbenlehre des Großvaters erhalten haben. Erlauben Sie mir in diesen Zeilen mich mit der Angabe bei Ihnen zu entschuldigen, daß ich seit mehreren Monaten von Dresden abwesend bin und mich gegenwärtig im Urlaub hier aufhalte. So geschah es daß Ihr Werk mit anderen Gegenständen erst vor Kurzem mir hierher nachgeschickt wurde und erst jetzt in meine Hände kam. Seitdem hat mein Bruder Walter mir auch den Abdruck des an ihn gerichteten Schreibens zugehen lassen und bitte ich Sie, den so verspäteten Ausdruck meines herzlichen Dankes auch jetzt noch freundlich aufnehmen zu wollen. Zu den Wünschen deren Erfüllung dem Großvater am Meisten am Herzen lag, gehörte der, die Wahrheit seiner Lehre von den Farben anerkannt zu sehen. Es wurde ihm jedoch diese Anerkennung während seines Lebens nicht zu Theil [.]". - Bei dem Autor mag es sich um Friedrich Grävell handeln, dessen Werk "Die zu sühnende Schuld gegen Goethe" in eben dem Jahr erschienen war, aus dem der vorliegende Brief datiert. - Mit kleinen Randläsuren; Bl. 1 und 2 größtenteils im Mittelfalz durchtrennt.

        Loved, and Lost! The True Story of a Short Life. Told in Gossip Verse, and Illustrated

      London: Day and Sons, circa, 1860. Octavo, 96 pp. (entirely lithographed, with full-page tinted lithographs in the text); very light spotting, but an excellent copy, recased in the original green cloth with new endpapers, all edges gilt. One of the earliest illustrated books written for children and published in Australia, this is a rare work - one of the rarest of all the prolific Meredith's publications in fact. Dedicated to her young son, Owen, and probably based on real events, it is a verse narrative of the short, incident-filled life of an Australian parakeet in the wild and in domestic captivity. The work is delightfully illustrated by the author, with each page offering delicate vignettes of bush and domestic life; in addition there are sixteen tinted lithographic plates recording the more significant episodes in the life of the parakeet hero.
