        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.. Second edition, tenth thousand, 1860. 8vo, approximately 195 x 115 mm, 7¾ x 4½ inches, a few wood engraved illustrations and diagrams in the text, pages: xv, 519 including index, plus 32 page catalogue with adverts dated April 1867, bound in the original publisher's zigzag pattern green cloth, blind stamped decoration to covers, gilt decoration, gilt rules and gilt lettering to spine, original light brown endpapers. Tiny crease at tail of spine, gilt decoration just slightly rubbed in a couple of places, a touch of rubbing to corners, tiny bump to lower corner of lower cover, inner paper hinges not cracked, neat inscription to front pastedown, title page faintly browned, slight faint foxing to Contents table which is printed on different paper from the rest of the book, text pages bright and clean throughout. A very good plus copy. This is Darwin's first published book and is the most often read and stands second only to The Origin of Species as the most often printed. Referred to universally today as the Voyage of the Beagle, it is an important travel book in its own right and its relation to the background of Darwin's evolutionary ideas has often been stressed. The tenth thousand which this is provides the definitive text and sees the first appearance of the Postscript dated February 1st 1860 on page vii in which Darwin takes the opportunity to correct some errors. This is the first time it was published in the green cloth binding in the same style as the first three John Murray editions of On the Origin of Species. See Freeman, The Works of Charles Darwin, pages 31-36 and No. 20. Freeman states that inserted advertisements in our edition may be as late as September 1868. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        The 1858 Debates that Propelled Lincoln to National Attention

      Columbus, OH 1860 - Book. Political Debates Between Hon. Abraham Lincoln and Hon. Stephen A. Douglas, in the Celebrated Campaign of 1858, in Illinois. Columbus, Ohio: Follett, Foster, and Co., 1860. 3rd edition, with publisher's advertisements bound in. 268 pp., 6 1/2 x 9 1/2 in. Historical BackgroundLincoln's debates with incumbent Illinois Senator Stephen Douglas earned him national prominence. Slavery was the pressing national issue, especially regarding its expansion into the western territories. Douglas authored the Kansas-Nebraska Act (1854), which effectively repealed the free-slave dividing line set by the Missouri Compromise (1820) at 36 30' north latitude. Instead of banning slavery north of the line and banning south of it, new states would instead decide on slavery's status within their borders by "popular sovereignty." On its surface, Douglas's bill appeared to offer the nation a middle path on the contentious issue of slavery. Instead, it would only muddy the waters on slavery.The Kansas-Nebraska Act was only one of a long list of compromises in the middle decades of the nineteenth century. Despite these attempts, the slavery debate only became more heated throughout the 1850s. Northerners, seeing the hypocrisy of "states rights" advocates, chafed when a new Fugitive Slave Act (1850) required the use of federal marshals to return escaped slaves. An unintended consequence of Douglas's bill resulted in fraudulent elections and violence in Kansas in 1855 and 1856. South Carolina Representative Preston Brooks bludgeoned Massachusetts anti-slavery Senator Charles Sumner on the Senate floor after an 1856 speech. In 1857, the Supreme Court handed down the Dred Scott decision, which decreed that African Americans could not be citizens and, based on one's right to bring property across state lines, effectively erased the division between free and slave states. Slavery, unspoken but protected in the Constitution and mitigated by antebellum compromisers, was a tinderbox about to roar to fire.Lincoln recognized the problems slavery presented for the nation, and in his debates with Douglas, focused his attention on the nationalization of slavery, both West and North. After he was nominated as the Republican candidate for the Senate, he spoke to the convention, famously asserting that "a house divided against itself cannot stand." The House Divided speech, delivered at Springfield, Illinois, on June 17, 1858, is the opening piece of this book. Though he would lose the Senate race, the rest of the book details Lincoln's intellectual combat with Douglas over slavery. This book is a third edition, identified by the line over publisher's imprint on the back of the title page, the numeral "2" at bottom of page 13, and publisher's advertisements bound in at head.Harrison Yerkes (1841-1899) enlisted as soon as the Civil War erupted, but since he was under 21 years of age in 1861, his father removed him from service. As soon as he reached the age of majority, he enlisted in the 31st Michigan Infantry Company, and remained in the Army for the remained of the war. He returned to Michigan, purchased two tracts of land, which he farmed until retiring in 1891. He was a lifelong Republican, though never held office.ConditionLight green boards faded, blind stamped, gilt lettering on spine, "Harrison Yerkes Northville, Mich 1860" erased from free front endpaper, same present (minus date) on verso of ffep, bep, and back paste down.

        The Union Pacific Railroad from Omaha, Nebraska Across the Continent, Making, with its Connections, an Unbroken Line from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. Charted by the United States. Its Construction, Resources, Earnings and Prospects.

      Pamphlet, 8vo, original printed wrappers, colored folding map (8 1/2" x 23 1/2"), 16 pp. Some minor chips at corners and extremities, pencil notation on top of the front wrapper, normal aging; otherwise very good. This pamphlet relates to a bond offering the company was issuing to raise capital. Management claims that the company has favorable prospects, and the mortgage bonds being offered are a secure and profitable investment. Railroad bonds were a popular investment during the second half of the 19th century, which helped prompt Henry Varnum Poor to publish his "History of Railroads and Canals in the United States" in 1860. The work enabled investors to see comprehensive financial information on just about all railroad companies. This pamphlet includes typical financial data about the company, and a folding "Map of the Union Pacific Railroad and its Connections." The map is in wonderful condition.

        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.

This short piece by Dickens, on St. Luke's Hospital, originally published in the January 17 1852 issue of HOUSEHOLD WORDS. With Dickens' consent, it was reissued in this pamphlet form by the Hospital management as a fund- raising mechanism. The first issue had purple wrappers, in which the 'appeal' was not highlighted from the remainder of the text and, evidently, donations suffered accordingly... in this second issue, the wrappers are pink, the 'appeal' is boldly printed, and it was accompanied by an easy-to-use return envelope [much as we see today in the solicitations we receive... make it easy on the mark!]. & & A rather uncommon item of Dickensiana.

        Framley Parsonage [In the first three Volumes of The Cornhill Magazine]

      London: Smith, Elder & Co., 1860 - 1861. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good set of the first three bound volumes of The Cornhill Magazine in the Publisher's original elaborately embossed red cloth with the front boards and spines lettered in gilt and containing the entirety of Anthony Trollope's breakthrough novel, Framley Parsonage, as first published in serial form. Each Volume is in Very Good condition with rubbing to the corners and shows some leftward lean, Volume 1 being bit dulled and rubbed with some splitting at the spine corners, Volume 2 being rather bright with only modest wear and a stain to the top edge of the closed page block, and Volume 3 also being rather bright with a quite small split to the rear joint and otherwise only modest wear. Each Volume shows some settling to the heavy page block as is common with books of this size with Volume 1 showing some gapping at the top between the page block and the spine head. Volume 3 appears to have been recased and the endpapers renewed. While an integral part of Trollope's famed Barchester series of novels (being the 4th novel in that series), Framley Parsonage is an important work of Victorian fiction in its own right. Although he had had some limited (and we do mean limited) success with certain of his earlier novels, with Framley Parsonage Trollope had indeed "arrived" as a novelist. His most successful novel to date had been Dr. Thorne. Because of Dr. Thorne's success, Trollope's next novel was likely to be expectantly received by the reading public. Trollope, while working on an Irish tale called Castle Richmond, wrote to William Thackeray proposing himself for publication in the Cornhill Magazine, which was to begin publication in January, 1860 with Thackeray as editor. Thackeray wrote kindly and enthusiastically to Trollope about his proposal, and Smith, Elder (the publisher) wrote separately in late October, 1859 proposing to pay Trollope 1,000 Pounds (for Trollope an astonishing sum and much more than he had received for any of his previous works) for a three volume tale on condition that the first installment be in their hands no later than December 12th. Trollope proposed Castle Richmond, his novel then in progress, but Smith, Elder rejected it and insisted that Trollope instead provide a novel with an English setting and a clerical theme. This demand led Trollope to write Framley Parsonage, a thoroughly English novel, and the short time allotted forced him to place Framley Parsonage near Barchester and to fall back on his old friends, the Proudies and the archdeacon, the fictional world where Trollope had first developed his charm and genius. Castle Richmond, then accepted by Chapman and Hall, was published just as Framley Parsonage ran in the Cornhill, the two works thus available to the public at the same time. Castle Richmond at first sold well on the strength of Dr. Thorne. However, once read and talked about, its sales flagged. (It was not one of Trollope's better efforts.) However, the reading public were talking excitedly of Framley Parsonage, anxiously awaiting each installment while praising Thackeray for having "discovered" Trollope, a great new novelist. Thackeray's procrastination had kept him from writing the opening novel for the Cornhill and thus had caused him to ask it of Trollope. Had Smith, Elder accepted Castle Richmond for serialization in the Cornhill, both Trollope and the Cornhill both likely would have suffered great damage to their nascent reputations. Instead, Thackeray's failure, coupled with Smith, Elder's insistence on an English clerical novel, sparked Trollope's true genius, helped the Cornhill to succeed as a publication, and brought Trollope to great fame. A Very Good copy of the initial serialization of Anthony Trollope's breakthrough novel. [The three volumes contain also contain works, by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Lord Tennyson, Washington Irving, Matthew Arnold, Charlotte Bronte, William Makepeace Thackeray, and others.] A Very Good set.

Gilt ruling to spine compartments, minor scuffing and edgewear. Very good indeed, strong and extremely handsome. Includes errata slip for the Darwin review tipped in at the contents page. Contains the first appearance of Bishop Wilberforce's review of Darwin's Origin of Species, "review" being a technical term."frothing exhibition of ignorance" being the more colloquial description. Not only did this review bring him into Thomas Huxley's sights, resulting in their famous debate, it also probably did more to cement Darwin's reputation as a solid scientist in relation to a number of his peers (R.I. Murchison for example is reputed to have encouraged Wilberforce in his review out of sheer jealousy at the attention Darwin was receiving). A handsome copy of a scarce piece of natural history, an important review of a very important book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
