        The Mill on the Floss

      Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and Sons 1860 - The complete set of this highly sought after work from prolific author, and pseudonym for Mary Ann Evans,George Eliot. First edition. Sadleir 816a; Wolff 2060. With one page of the original publishers' catalogue to the rear of volume three, and two volumes featuring their original half titles. Like other novels by George Elliot, The Mill on the Floss articulates the tension between circumstances and the spiritual energies of individual characters struggling against those circumstances. The two main themes of the novel, growing up and falling in love, lend themselves to amusement, but it is stunted growth and frustrated love that are emphasised. Commentators have often focused on the constant rejection of Maggie's talents and mannerisms by her family and society. Even the cultural norms of her community deny her intellectual and spiritual growth, according to Elizabeth Ermarth, They are norms according to which she is an inferior, dependent creature who will never go far in anything, and which consequently are a denial of her full humanity. Complete in three volumes. Condition: In original publishers' cloth bindings, with gilt lettering to the spines. Externally, a trifle rubbed, with wear and loss to the extremities and spines. Chipping to the head and tail of spines. Light damp staining to the boards, and sunning to the spines, as well asone front board. Three joints are starting, and all hinges are tender. Internally, generally firmly bound, with instances of spotting, and handling marks. Tide marks to volume ones endpapers. Bookseller ink stamps to the front pastedown of two volumes. Overall: GOOD ONLY. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        WORDS OF HOPE & COMFORT FOR THE SORROWFUL

      Mr Mitchell, Publisher to the Queen, Chromo-Lithographed by Day & Son, no date [ca.1860s]., London - Original red bevel edge cloth lettered and decorated in gilt and blind. Modern rebacking of matching red morocco, gilt titled, cloth inner hinges. 25 colour plates on 13 heavy leaves, all edges gilt. Some professional repairs at outer corners and edges of covers; small chip at bottom edge of front free endpaper; scattered foxing to margins but only a few of the plates show any foxing at all; separation at fore edge of two leaves (a very easy repair if desired); else a VG tight copy, plates bright and clean. The leaves (all but the last) have a colour plate on each side mounted within a heavy card frame, two frames joined to make each leaf. >>> Old ink inscription on front free endpaper "Given to my Father, Rev Rufus W. Clark, D.D. at Albany, N.Y. - January first - 1868 by General Stephen Van Rensselaer." Tipped in at inner edge of one leaf (the other is loose) is a two page letter signed from Stephen Van Rensselaer to Clarke dated 1 Jan., 1868, headed "Manor House", with his printed monogram, 8 x 5 inches, folded twice, short tears to two folds, else fine. The text is in a secretarial hand, which perhaps isn't such a pity. as Ms Clark was confused about which Van Rensselaer gave the book to her father. It has to have been Stephen Van Rensselar IV (1789-1868), one of the largest land-holders in New York, the son of the distinguished War of 1812 general and politician Stephen Van Rensselaer III (1764-1839). IV found himself involved a the 30 year Anti-Rent Wars when the estate was divided. Van Rensselaer IV writes "Dear Doctor, Among the many books I have overlooked, this one I send is the most artistic & beautiful in design & in execution. The title alone renders it somewhat inappropriate, as never has God's enchanted sun shine beamed more fully upon a family, than upon yours.Your, aged friend, S.V Rensselaer" ( the text body, in a secretarial hand, is in sepia ink, the signature in black ink). In pencil lightly on the back of the tipped in leaf is "This book belongs to Eliza W. Clark" >>> Biblical calligraphed texts with fancy illustrated borders, illustrated and decorated initials (some in gilt). Inspired by the medieval illuminated manuscript, but thoroughly High Victorian, a striking example. COPAC locates only one copy, at the Nat. Lib. of Scotland. WorldCat finds three - at Cal. State, Stanford, and Delaware. Note: heavy book, please enquire for shipping rate. Folio [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Photo Album]: William Zay Family

      [Mansfield, Ohio. circa 1860-1890]. Small thick quarto, approximately 5.5" x 6.75". Contemporary full morocco, both boards with an elaborate design in deep relief, brass clasps with etched designs, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, printed moire endleaves. Very good with moderate rubbing. A nicely made album of family portraits, containing 27 original albumen photographs laid into the slots. Most are identified with small captions in pencil (two empty slots are also captioned). Moderate fading to some photographs, scattered soiling and tears to the margins, five photos have partially shifted in their slots, overall good or better. The photographs document the life and family of William Zay, a German-born immigrant and photographer from Mansfield, Ohio, from the Civil War through 1890. They include a portrait of the young Zay in uniform, when he served in the 99th Ohio Volunteer Infantry (he was promoted to first lieutenant in 1864), and later portraits of Zay, his wife Flora, and their children (Nellie and Clara). Also included are portraits of Zay's brother Frederick (an artist and photographer who worked in partnership with William), and related family. After the Civil War, Zay became a successful photographer, and it is likely that this album was made at or for his studio. A unique piece of Midwestern Americana. .

        The Colored Fruit Book: For use of Nurseymen.

      Rochester, N.Y.: D.M. Dewey, 1860. - 4to., (11 2/8 x 9 inches). 64 chromolithographed and stencilled plates (many plates with expert repairs to verso and mounted on guards, some plates quite thumbed). Contemporary half black morocco, gilt, red morocco lettering-piece on the front cover, rebacked preserving the original spine, extremities worn). Provenance: with "H.H. Washburn" [?travelling seedsman] gilt stamped on the front cover; early pencilled ownership inscription on front free endpaper, and title-page. A travelling seedsman's custom-made sample catalogue assembled from stock plates, including examples produced by Dewey, but also plates lithographed for him by Kellogg of Rochester. "As Rochester's gardening flourished a local bookseller with an interest in the subject, D.M. Dewey, began to collect and publish coloured plates of fruit, flowers, shrubs, and fruit-bearing or purely ornamental trees. Selections of these plates sold by Dewey and others from the 1850s to the last decade of the century were usually bound into pocket-sized books about ten by six inches with stout leather covers, often stamped with the name of the nursery or the salesman offering the plants portrayed within. Dewey also recognised the wider appeal of the coloured plates described by Charles van Ravenswaay as 'an innovation in American popular art' ("A Nineteenth-Century Garden", 1977, page 20.). Their polychromic attractions were extended to a larger audience in small selections from a larger-sized series presented in decorative bindings, . the earliest plates were simple watercolours, but later, as the demand grew, the technique of theorem paintings coloured with the help of stencils was used to multiply the number of copies as quickly and as cheaply as possible. Later still engraved or lithographed outlines were coloured by hand, and finally chromolithographs printed in colour began to replace more laborious procedures, though some of these were finished by hand too. Most of these processes involved the labour of teams of artists and colourists, one or two of whom went on to establish themselves as rivals to Dewey, though none achieved the same success" (Oak Spring Pomona 64).

        Map of the Five Cities of New York, Brooklyn, Jersey City, Hoboken and Hudson City

      New York: Valentine, 1860. Map. Hand-colored lithograph. 39.5" x 28". This fantastic large scale map of New York City and its surrounding areas was originally prepared for the 1860 edition Valentine's "Manual of the Corporation of the City of New York," a richly illustrated collection of facts and statistics related to the city. It depicts Manhattan Island at the center from the Battery up to lower Westchester and the Bronx. Around Manhattan are the waterfront areas of Brooklyn, Astoria, Hoboken and Jersey City. Overlaying the grid are the names and tracts of Manhattan's original land owners, as well as scattered individual buildings. Wards are in color and there are ferry routes, depths in sounding and a 'proposed prospect park' in Brooklyn. Printed in two sheets, this version has been mended together and lined with linen. Original folds as issued are slightly browned but overall very pleasing. Must be seen to be appreciated. Mathew Dripps was from Ireland. He became a prominent map publisher based in lower Manhattan and is remembered most for his maps of New York City. His maps are hard to find.

        Fine original woodburytype photograph of the composer, three-quarter length, seated, by Etienne Carjat (1828-1906)

      Paris Galerie Contemporaine. 244 x 193 mm., laid down to publisher's mount with decorative border and text. Ca. 1860, but published 1876-1884. A fine impression.. "No composer in the first half of the 19th century enjoyed the measure of prestige, wealth, popular acclaim or artistic influence that belonged to Rossini. His contemporaries recognized him as the greatest Italian composer of his time. His achievements cast into oblivion the operatic world of Cimarosa and Paisiello, creating new standards against which other composers were to be judged. That both Bellini and Donizetti carved out personal styles is undeniable; but they worked under Rossini's shadow, and their artistic personalities emerged in confrontation with his operas. Not until the advent of Verdi was Rossini replaced at the centre of Italian operatic life." Philip Gossett in Grove online

        Autograph letter signed, concerning several of his inventions.

      1860 - Autograph Letter Signed from the Designer of the "Monitor" ERICSSON, John (1803-89). A.L.s. dated March 26, [18]60, to an unknown recipient. 2-1/2 pp., on lined paper embossed with a small steam locomotive and the letters "P. & P. in the upper left corner. 247 x 195 mm. Creased where folded, small tear mended, but fine overall. A very fine, detailed letter from the prolifically inventive Swedish-born engineer John Ericsson, whose many accomplishments include the invention of a screw propeller for steamships, a rotary steam engine, the first English steam-driven fire engine, and his enormously popular "caloric" engine. This last, a hot-air engine designed to use heat more directly and efficiently than its steam-powered counterpart, was the first mass-produced heat-powered engine; in various incarnations, it satisfied the growing need for small and medium-sized sources of industrial power throughout the nineteenth century. Ericsson's most famous achievement, however, was his design for the Union Navy's ironclad warship Monitor; the Monitor's decisive victory over the Confederate ironclad Merrimac in March 1862 marked a turning point not only in the course of the Civil War, but in the history of warship design and construction. In later life Ericsson interested himself in alternative sources of power, particularly solar and tidal energy. The present letter, written almost exactly two years before the Monitor's defeat of the Merrimac, discusses several of Ericsson's inventions-a hydraulic pump, a "swing machine," an air hoister and a telegraphic machine-as well as the difficulties Ericsson had encountered in obtaining the necessary support and encouragement to proceed with the patenting of these inventions. The last paragraph of the letter contains a reference to a "new" caloric engine, which was "nearly ready"; Ericsson continued to improve the caloric engine to the end of his life. Ericsson's imperious and combative temperament is apparent throughout the letter, particularly in the postscript, in which he states that "I should prefer the 'cove' you allude to showing his hand before I have my patent claim. Under my general principle I will be able to hit him all the harder-so with others who may feel inclined to tread on my & our toes just now." DAB. Strandh, History of the Machine, pp. 136-39; 164.

      George E. Eyre and William Spottiswoode, London 1860 - Small octavo, original dark leather gilt, slightly rubbed. Presented aboard ship by John McDouall Stuart. A gift from the explorer John McDouall Stuart, given aboard ship on his way to London from Adelaide in 1864, the year that his Explorations in Australia was published.

Thomas Cochrane, Tenth Earl of Dundonald (1775 1860) was a Member of the British Parliament and noted naval commander who fought in the Napoleonic Wars. In 1814 he was imprisoned on a false charge of committing fraud at the London Stock Exchange and expelled from the Navy and Parliament. In 1832 he was pardoned and reinstated in the Royal Navy with the rank of Rear Admiral of the Blue, later rising to the rank of Admiral of the Red, and the honorary title of Rear-Admiral of the United Kingdom. The adventure writer Captain Marryatt served under him and his character inspired both C. S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower and Patrick O'Brian's Jack Aubrey, as well as turning up in the historical novels of G. A Henty and Bernard Cornwell. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A View of a Himalayan Range, Most Likely Near Simla, With Men Wearing Native Indian Dress in the Foreground].

      1860 - N.d. [ca. 1860]. Watercolour and pencil ca. 51x34 cm (20 x 13 ¼ in). The painting is on the artist's original wash-line mount on the thicker Whatman paper, and in a recent matting. Unsigned. There are some areas of browning on the upper part of the painting, otherwise a very good watercolour. The watercolour shows a mountainous landscape with gorgeous snowy peaks occupying the upper part of the view, and with a serpentine road and men wearing Indian native dress in the foreground. Most likely an area near Simla (Shimla), a favourite summer refuge for the British in India in the 19th century and the official summer capital of British Raj from 1864. Located in the north-west Himalayas at an average altitude of 2250 m (7234 ft), Simla was the star of the hill stations - mountainous resorts providing relief to British society from the heat and disease of the plains. "The Himalayan resorts were at an average altitude of six thousand feet and offered magnificent views of range after range of jagged snowy peaks. This region became a venue for leisure activities and the towns in the hills rapidly acquired the character of English villages" (British library). Drawings of hill stations' mountainous landscapes quickly became a popular pastime for professional and amateur artists: "These places appeared as a Garden of Eden to the British. Here they found relief from the poverty, disease, dirt and heat of the Plains., For both men and women, holidays in the Hills gave them unbroken leisure to sit and sketch with worries set aside, among scenes anglicised to look like home., [Simla in particular was apprehended as a place of] a grander less-tamed nature with dark woods and conifers set against a staggering backcloth of stupendous peaks" (Archer M., Lightbown R. India Observed: India as viewed by British Artists, 1760-1860. London, 1982).

      London: Sampson Low Son & Co 1860 - Three volumes. Mixed edition, volume I first English edition and volumes II and III second English editions. viii, 316; (2), 360; (2), 368 pp. Attractively bound in recent mottled green half morocco over plain green cloth boards by Bayntun, spines with raised bands, gilt lettered to two panel, gilt decorated to others, top edges gilt. Slight fading to cloth at top edge of lower board of the first volume, a very good set. Cf. Parrish and Miller, pp. 39 & 40, referring to the publisher’s circular stating that the first edition appeared in mid to late August 1860. The second edition volumes present here were evidently issued soon after, bearing the same year of publication as the first edition. The 16 pp. publisher’s catalogue, which they call for at the end of the first edition of the third volume, is not present here: either never included or not bound in as the case may be.

        Italian Peasant Woman in Scenic Landscape

      1860. A charming image of an Italian peasant woman adorned in native dress. This stunning watercolour is a beautiful example of the peasant genre of painting that was popular during the mid-nineteenth-century and epitomized by the works of artists such as Jules Breton (1827-1906), William Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905), and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796-1875). In this romanticized portrayal of rural life, a colourfully dressed peasant woman is pictured amidst a picturesque seaside landscape engaged in her daily chores. Works such as this not only exalted the dignified, pure life of the noble peasant, but also celebrated the beauty of the native countryside. They were most likely sold to tourists as souvenirs of their travels. Watercolour mounted on sheet of brownish-gray paper. Very good condition apart from some light soiling and minor foxing in the margins, mild rippling, and two small tears in the right margin.
