        Engraved Portrait in steel-plate mezzotint

      Philadelphia: [no publisher named] [no date: 1860s]. - A sheet of cream cotton rag paper. 13.9 x 11.1 inches. Image: 11.1 x 9.3 in. Oval: 9.1 in. high. Near Fine with some minor wrinkles to lower margin; 4 tiny pin-holes: 1 in left margin, 3 in background just below top margin; these are visible only with light in rear of the paper. This is a magnificent early engraving of Lincoln. The photos give an outline of what to expect, but they don’t convey the full experience. There is no Victorian bric-a-brac, family members, Cabinet members, etc. to distract attention from the man himself. He is dignified in dress, but the light and focus are on his great strength of character combined with traces of youth in his forehead and his unruly hair. A commanding vital presence in exceptionally well-preserved condition; will be mailed between sheets of masonite for highest security in shipping. William Sartain (1843-1924) was the son of John Sartain (1808-1897) who came from England to become a central figure in the artistic life and establishment in Philadelphia during most of the 19th century; he was especially influencial in promoting mezzotints as an effective and popular form of illustration in books and magazines, as well as in separate prints; 4 of his children became artists. William went to high school and the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts with Thomas Eakins and they remained friends for life; they traveled together to Europe in 1868. William studied there until 1875, when he returned to America and settled in New York where he pursued a long and successful career as a painter much influenced by contemporary French art. The National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution holds 7 portraits by William Sartain, all related to the Civil War: Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson, Lincoln and Family, Grant and Family, Robert E. Lee, General P.G.T. Beauregard, and General George Thomas.

      J. Techener, Paris 1860 - Unique, Original, and Absolutely Elegant. 197 x 121 mm (7 3/4 x 4 3/4"). 2 p.l., xlv, [iii], 268, [4] pp. "Nouvelle Edition," THE ONLY COPY PRINTED ON VELLUM. LOVELY CONTEMPORARY TAN MOROCCO, SUMPTUOUSLY GILT, BY HARDY (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in), covers gilt with wide dentelle frame composed of many floral and scrolling tools, gilt arms of the 12th Duke of Hamilton (1845-95) at center of each cover, raised bands, spine richly gilt, one black and one maroon morocco label, all edges gilt. WITH FIVE INSERTED SEPIA PEN-AND-WASH DRAWINGS THAT WERE USED AS THE ORIGINAL ARTWORK FOR THE ENGRAVINGS in this work. Each page ruled in gold. Brunet I, 1705. Three tiny dark spots on front covering, a hint of humpbacked bowing to boards (as is typical of books on vellum), but AN EXTREMELY FINE COPY, the binding lustrous and virtually unworn, and the vellum quite clean, fresh, and bright. This is a unique copy of an appropriately luxurious edition of the memoirs of a noblewoman raised at the court of the Sun King. In the text Madame de Caylus (1673-1729) offers an insider's account at perhaps the most glittering court Europe has ever known. As the cousin of Madame de Maintenon, Louis XIV's morganatic wife, she was privy to all the intrigues surrounding the royal household. The fine drawings here are: the portrait of Madame de Caylus after a painting by Daullé in her lifetime; Madame de Montespan acting as Femme de Chambre to Mademoiselle de la Vallière; Reconciliation of the King with Madame de Montespan; Promenade of Madame de Maintenon and Madame de Montchevreuil in the Forest of Fontainebleu; and the Prince de Condé seized with smallpox. This work was first published by Voltaire in 1770, but the present edition is considered the best. Given this item's extraordinarily handsome binding, its distinction as the only copy printed on vellum, and the presence of the drawings used for the engravings to illustrate the work, one could not imagine a more sumptuous or a more special copy.

        Where can my nieces be?

      n.p., ca. 1860 - Hablot K. Browne, "Phiz" (1815-1882) was an illustrator, painter, sporting artist and cartoonist. His career began in 1836 with his illustrations to Dickens's Sunday Under Three Heads, which led to his being selected to illustrate Pickwick Papers, and to a collaboration with Dickens lasting 28 years and involving 13 books. He was a prolific contributor to Punch, and other periodicals, where his cartoons and comic touch elicited enormous popularity. This is a particularly fresh and bright example of his work, probably done toward the end of his cartooning career (13 x 9-1/2 inches). Original watercolour and pencil, signed "Phiz" and inscribed as title. Fine condition. Bryant and Heneage, p. 35. Provenance: B.F. Stevens & Brown, Ltd., London; New Yorker cartoonist Claude Smith [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Deckelbezügen; feines Exemplar.. First Edition of "The first monograph on experimental teratology" Warkany, Congenital Malformations, p.18 - A beautiful illustrated and very interesting volume on malformations and abnormalities by Peter Ludwig Panum (1820-1855), the great Danish physician, which is best remembered for his report on the epidemic of measles in the Faroes. In this monograph Panum said that Wolff was the first to represent abnormal development. Panum ponted out, for one thing, that malformations may be produced experimentally in a chicken foetus on exposure of the egg to certain conditions of temperature, showing the foetal malformations are not necessarily depended upon hereditary factors. The studies of Panum on monsters were highly admired by his contemporaries. - See Meisen, Danish Scientist, pp.134-137; Meyer, The Rise of Embryology, 225-26; Unrecorded by Waller, Osler. Rare.

        Bound Volume of Handbills for Musical Performances at two German theaters: W. Diehm's Forsyth Street Conzert-halle and Steuben Haus in New York City

      [New York]: Lauter & Becker. 1860-1862. Octavo. Quarter calf and marbled papercovered boards. Text in German. Spine perished, both boards detached, modest foxing and small chips and stains, particularly on the last couple of handbills, overall good or better. The volume contains 46 handbills for German musical comedies and light operas, as follows: 40 handbills printed rectos only for Wilhelm Diehm's Forsyth St. Conzert-halle (hand-numbered 2-41; apparently one is lacking) and six handbills printed rectos only for Steuben Haus in the Bowery (hand-numbered 42-47). Each show seems to have run for a week or two, and as they run consecutively, one can be reasonably certain that Steuben Haus suceeded the Forsyth Street Conzert-halle. The proprietor of Forsyth Street is listed as Nathaniel Rosenbaum, but Steuben Haus was founded and run by Sixtus Ludwig Kapff, a Wuerttemberg revolutionist who was forced to flee to the U.S when the 1848 movement was crushed. He served briefly in the Union Army before returning to New York City to found his theater. During the 19th Century, New York had the third largest German population of any city in the world, and musical theatre played an important role in the immigrant population's community, and one imagines even more so during the Civil War. Perhaps because of the language barriers, surprisingly little research has been done on the subject. A nice volume of ephemeral handbills that helps illustrate the vibrancy of the German musical theatre in daily immigrant life. .

        Autograph Note / Page from Book, Signed and Inscribed to His First Wife by THEODOR HERZL, the Founder and Leader of the First Organized Zionist Movement

      - (1860-1904). Hungarian-born, Austrian Jewish writer; founder and leader of the first organized Zionist movement. ANS. ("Th. Herzl"). ¼p. 8vo. N.p., July 25, 1887. An inscribed page removed from a book. In German with translation. "Miss Julie and Helene Naschauer, my excellent listeners." Herzl wrote for the Tageblatt through the fall of 1887 and in the following year published his second collection of essays, The Book of Folly. In 1889 Herzl married Julie Naschauer, almost 10 years his junior. Though their marriage was not a happy one it produced three children and endured until his death a decade and a half later. As Paris correspondent for the influential Neue Freie Presse, Herzl observed French anti-Semitism close at hand during the infamous Dreyfus Affair - the 1894 arrest, conviction and exile of an innocent French-Jewish army officer whose trial Herzl covered for the newspaper. During this period Herzl wrote a drama about Jewish-Christian relations called The Ghetto becoming convinced of the need to establish a Jewish homeland. His most influential work, The Jewish State published in early 1896, was a practical argument and outline for the realization of such a nation. The first Zionist congress convened in Basel in 1897 and established the World Zionist Congress under Herzl's direction. Darkly written on a browned excised flyleaf. A lovely association item in very good condition. * All our items are sent via Federal Express. Additional postage may be necessary. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Eigenh. musikalisches Albumblatt mit Widmung, Notenzeile und U. ("HLeonard").

      Utrecht, 4. März 1860.. ½ S. Gr.-8vo.. Vier Takte aus seinem 4. Konzert. - Leonard befand sich zu jener Zeit (und das schon seit 1852) mit seiner Gattin, der Sängerin Antonia Sitches de Mendi (geb. 1827, eine Nichte von Manuel Garcia) auf Konzertreisen durch Europa; 1866 ließ er sich bleibend in Paris nieder. "Seit 1866 wandte Leonard sich mehr und mehr der Kammermusik zu und widmete ihr bis etwa 1881 seine Haupttätigkeit in Konzerten und Salons. Gleichzeitig beschäftigte er sich mit der Methodik und verfaßte seine didaktischen Werke, in denen er die berühmte Methode Leonard' für Violine aufstellte [...] Die Pariser Stellung Leonards war so gesichert, daß er 1879 das Angebot des Brüsseler Konservatoriums zurückweisen konnte, die Meisterklasse zu übernehmen, die Vieuxtemps und Wieniawski bis vor kurzem geleitet hatten" (MGG VIII, 630). Zu seinen Schülern gehörten u. a. Henri Marteau und Paul Viardot.

        Du traitement de l'ectropion cicatriciel. Thèse de doctorat en médecine.

      Paris, Rignoux, 1860. - 1 vol. in-4 (253 x 198 mm), 100 pp., 3 planches (dont 2 dépliantes), demi-basane chagrinée verte (reliure moderne), plats recouverts de papier marbré, envoi de l'auteur, bel exemplaire. Importante thèse de chirurgie plastique, soutenue à la Faculté de médecine de Paris. L'auteur était interne des hôpitaux. Sur la page de remerciement figurent notamment, parmi ses maîtres, Jobert de Lamballe et Denonvilliers. Cazelles rapporte et illustre une observation de Denonvilliers, avec sa technique novatrice de plastie (plastie en Z). Une gravure illustre cette observation, avant et après l'intervention. Certains auteurs font remonter l'origine de la plastie en Z à 1837 avec la description de Horner (transposition d'un seul lambeau triangulaire) alors que Mc Carthy estime que la description de la véritable plastie en Z est due à Berger (1887). La plupart des auteurs ayant traités de l'historique de la plastie en Z attribuent cependant l'invention du procédé à Denonvilliers. R.H. Ivy, qui s'est particulièrement intéressé à ce sujet écrit : "In the light of our investigations, it is believed safe to conclude that Denonvilliers recorded in 1854 the first performance of a Z-plasty." Il précise que la description complète et l'illustration du procédé opératoire ne se trouvent que dans cette thèse de Cazelles : " Cazelles mentions that Denonvilliers performed at the same session the same triangular-flap switching operation to lower the right corner of the mouth as he had done on the depressed outer angle of the eye." Emile Honoré Cazelles, né à Nimes, délaissa assez rapidement la médecine, au profit de la philosophie et de la politique. Il fut l'un des vulgarisateurs, en France, des doctrines de Stuart Mill. Il devint conseiller d'Etat et directeur de la Sûreté générale. T.J.S. Patterson, Zeis Index, 1053 ; Boyes, On the shoulders of giants, p. 52 ; R.H. Ivy, Who originated the Z-Plasty, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, 1971, 47, 67-72 ; D. Montandon, Plastic and reconstructive surgery of the orbitopalpebral region, 1990, p. 11 : "Denonvilliers, who is usually considered the initiator of the procedure (Z-plasty), published his first report in 1854. Thanks to the thesis of Cazelles (1860), the technique of Denonvilliers became popular in ophthalmic plastic surgery." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        CATALOGUE OF FISHES, MOLLUSCA, ZOOPHYTES, &c., &c. [caption title].

      Boston. August 3, 1860. - Broadside, 14 x 9 inches. Some light foxing. Old fold lines. Some small chips and tears around the edges. Very good. Broadside advertising the contents of the tanks at the Boston Aquarial Gardens, later renamed the Boston Aquarial and Zoological Gardens. When first established in 1859 by James Cutting, the Gardens were devoted solely to marine life. In the spring of 1860, it undertook a change in direction with the inclusion of zoology, as is already evidenced in this broadside, which advertises kangaroos, bears, monkeys, rats, as well as several species of birds and reptiles. The Gardens was acquired by P.T. Barnum in the summer of 1862 and closed in 1863, its holdings relocated to Barnum's museum in New York. The contents of forty tanks are listed here, as well as fourteen cases holding zoological life. Posting open hours of 9 A.M. to 10 P.M., with a daily fish-feeding at 11 A.M., the broadside warns patrons to "always look through that part of the glass nearest the object" in order to prevent dizziness. OCLC locates only four similar items.

        Manuscript - HMS Donegal - French Intervention in Mexico

      England 1860 - United Kingdom, Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean, 25 August 1860 - 12 May 1862. Manuscript logbook kept by an ambitious and diligent officer onboard the HMS Donegal, one year of which was served under the command of Arctic explorer and Admiral Sherard Osborn, conveying British troops and guns to Mexico for the War of the French Intervention. Qto. 63 pages. Volume measures approximately 19 x 23 cm. Indication of moisture to some leaves, otherwise in very good condition, bound in marbled paper wrappers representative of the period, labeled to front. Featuring one year's service in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean on HMS Donegal commanded by Sherard Osborn, together with HMS Sans Pareil and HMS Conqueror, recording daily, and sometimes hourly, the ship's course, the choice and changing of sails, coaling and loading, the order of the day, and any unusual events, this chronicle of life at sea was penned by an unidentified Royal Navy Officer whose rank appears to be that of 'Master.' In November 1861 HMS Donegal was one of a number of ships transporting troops to Mexico, and in February 1862 she assisted the recovery of equipment and stores from the wreck of her sister HMS Conqueror. Two thirds of the volume, 40 pages, document the vessel's movements under the direction of Captain Sherard Osborn, 19 pages of which pertain to the French Intervention in Mexico. Numerous other ships are named throughout, mainly British but also Spanish and French. Contemporary to the start of the American Civil War, the officer also makes note of American vessels in the Gulf of Mexico including the frigate USS Potomac attached to the Gulf Blockading Squadron. From May 1861 to June 1862, Admiral Sherard Osborn commanded Donegal in the Gulf of Mexico. On 24 July 1861 she returned to England with 36 military invalids and 6 convicts from the Gibraltar garrison, as well as three naval invalids from the St. Jean d'Acre. Returning for service in the Caribbean, on 5 November 1861 she was passing Antigua, and on the 10th Puerto Rico. On 16 December 1861 she was anchored at Port Royal in Jamaica where many other British vessels were present. From there she sailed to Bermuda, and on 24 December she was "steaming through Caicos passage." Always on the move, by the 1st of January 1862 she was moored and coaling at Bermuda, from where she also supplied HMS Nile with guns, etc. On 22 January she enters the Port of Havana in Cuba, staying there for one week, then proceeding to Vera Cruz fro provisions, then back to Havana, and so forth. The volume ends on the voyage from Bermuda to England in May. Excerpts from the manuscript: 18 May 1861. "Captain [Sherard] Osborn read his commission. -- Broadhead discharged HMS Asia. ship drifted down near Trafalgar." 24 July 1861. "At anchor Plymouth Sound.
