      Charleston, SC: A.E. Miller and Evans & Cogswell, 1860. Following Election Day of 1860, when it became apparent that Abraham Lincoln would become the next President of the United States, the Governor of South Carolina, William H. Gist, followed the request of the state legislature and proclaimed November 21st an official "day of Fasting, Humiliation, and Prayer, . . . inviting the clergy and people of all denominations . . . to assemble at their respective places of worship to implore the direction and blessing of Almighty God in this our hour of difficulty, and to give us one heart and one mind to oppose, by all just and proper means, every encroachment upon our rights." These three sermons were preached in Charleston churches on the appointed day: "Fasting Humiliation and Prayer" at the Central Presbyterian Church by the Rev. W. C. Dana, 12 pages, not listed in Sabin; "The Sin and the Curse; or, The Union, the True Source of Disunion, and our Duty in the Present Crisis" at the Second Presbyterian Church by the Rev. Thomas Smyth, 24 pages, Sabin 85324; and "Are These His Doings?" at St. Michael's Church by the Rev. James H. Elliott, 11 pages, not listed in Sabin.

        The State of New York from New and Original Surveys under the direction of J.H. French

      Syracuse: Robert Pearsall Smith, 1860. Hand-coloured lithographic wall map, backed with modern linen, full period color, trimmed in red cloth, on contemporary rollers. Two inset maps: "Geological and Land Patent Map of the State of New York" and "Meterological Map of the State of New York." Twelve inset city plans: Buffalo, Troy, Utica, Syracuse, Albany, Oswego, Schenectady, Hudson, Auburn, Poughkeepsie, Rochester, New York City. Twelve pictorial vignettes of New York State towns and scenery, and a decorative border of scrolling vines. In good condition except for occasional expert repairs and old repair evident along right edge. 67 x 73 3/4 inches. The second edition of the best map of any American state published to its time. Ristow devoted an entire chapter to the construction of this map, and pronounced it of a "higher quality than the maps of other states published prior to the Civil War." 'American Maps and Mapmakers', pp. 355-378. Beginning in 1853, Robert Pearsall Smith contracted with a number of local surveyors to construct maps of New York counties. In 1855 he engaged John Homer French to compile a state map from the various county maps. Although the individual county maps were not all of uniform quality, they were far more consistent and comprehensive than the local surveys conducted for any other American state. French's general map of The State of New York, first published in 1859, supplanted Burr's Atlas of the State of New York (1829), as the definitive reference for the topography of the state. It remained so until two decades later, when the U.S. Geological Survey began published maps based on original triangulation. This second edition was published in 1860. Despite the quality of the map, the number of copies sold was insufficient to offset costs, and in 1865 Smith sold his publication rights to H. H. Lloyd, who brought out new editions. Cf. BMC Printed Maps X, col. 558; Journal of the American Geographical and Statistical Society 2 (1860), p. 135; Phillips, America, p. 513; Ristow, American Maps & Mapmakers, pp.355- 78; not in Rumsey.

        Actinologia Britannica. A History of the British Sea-Anemones and Corals with Coloured Figures of the Species and Principal Varieties. SPLENDID COPY

      Van Voorst, 1860 1860 8vo., First Edition, with a coloured frontispiece, 10 other fine coloured lithographed plates, one plate in monochrome and numerous engraved illustrations in the text, neat early-twentieth century signature and (sadly) one partially erased signature on front free endpaper; original decorative dark green cloth blocked in gilt and black, decorative back gilt, a bright, clean, near fine copy with virtually no trace of the usual foxing and offsetting. Complete with the half-title (lightly browned) and the erratum slip to Part III (often missing) correctly bound at B1. The 'Actinologia' is widely recognised as Gosse's masterpiece - the finest of all his writings on natural history and (unlike 'Omphalos' and others) untainted by religious fervour. Its exquisite illustrations, painstakingly prepared (often by candlelight) with meticulous accuracy, are astonishingly detailed and considerable credit is due to the engraver Dickes who worked the originals for press. A moving account of the labour expended on this work is given by the author's son Edmund in his classic autobiography 'Father and Son' (1907). The younger Gosse also provides a vivid account of his father's spiritual agony in attempting to reconcile his scientific reason with his faith as a member of the fundamentalist Plymouth Brethren. Tragically, Gosse the elder was unable to accept the revelations of Darwin, Huxley and others, and his previously respected standing was rapidly eroded. The work, which illustrates every known British species, remains the standard authority on the subject, and must stand also as a tribute to a substantial talent lost in the scientific upheavals of the Darwinian age.

        To the Secretary and Members of the Royal Cork Yacht Club This Print of the Cutter Yacht Cygnet (W. Smith Esqre.) is respectfully dedicated

      London & Plymouth: Edmund Fry & Son, Edmund Fry Junr., [circa 1860]. Lithograph, coloured by hand, by Brierly, printed by Day & Haghe. 15 x 21 7/8 inches. A lively view of the Irish cutter yacht Cygnet, lithographed by Brierly himself. The Royal Cork Yacht Club, founded in 1720, is the oldest yacht club in the world, and gained royal patronage in 1831 from William IV. Their regattas started in 1828 and were held with great success throughout the 19th century (in 1894 the Prince of Wales won his class in his yacht `Britannia). The present view shows a club member's vessel in a stiff breeze with the club burgee flying from the mast top. Sir Oswald Brierly, after an adventurous early life when he emigrated to New South Wales and took part in a number of exploring expeditions, returned to Britain in 1851. He recorded the French and English fleets' operations in the Baltic during the war with Russia, and developed a close artistic association with the British Royal family. Upon the death of Schetky in 1874 he was appointed marine painter to Queen Victoria, and at the same time was made marine painter to the Royal Yacht Squadron. He was eventually knighted in 1885.

        On the Dynamical Theory of Gases.London: Taylor & Francis, 1867.

      First edition, in original wrappers, of one of Maxwell's seminal papers: the most developed and complete exploration of his theory of gases.<br/><br/> "Ever since his brilliant but flawed paper of 1860 on gas theory, James had been mulling over new ideas on the topic. In 1866 he brought them to fruition in a paper, <i>On the Dynamical Theory of Gases</i>. His earlier paper had given the world its first statistical law of physics-the Maxwell distribution of molecular velocities-and had predicted that the viscosity of a gas was independent of its pressure," but significant problems remained. Although Maxwell's earlier theory of gases predicted that the viscosity of a gas varied with the square root of absolute temperature, his own experimental evidence contradicted his theory. "The fault seemed to lie in James' original assumption that when molecules collided they behaved like billiard balls, in other words that they were perfectly elastic spheres. He now tried the alternative assumption that they did not actually come into contact at all but repelled one another with a force that varied inversely with the nth power of the separation distance... Some fiendishly complicated mathematics followed... [but] he found two ways to simplify the calculations. <br/><br/> "One was to introduce the notion of <i>relaxation time</i>, the time a system takes to return to a state of equilibrium after being disturbed. This is a concept now routinely used throughout physics and engineering... Like so many of Maxwell's innovations, it has become so familiar that one wonders why nobody had thought of it before." The other simplification concerned varying the value of <i>n</i> until he reached simpler relationships that corresponded to experimental results. "Even with the simplifications, the mathematical obstacles were as formidable as those James had faced when tackling Saturn's rings. He overcame them with such mastery that some scholars consider this the most inspiring of all his works. The young Ludwig Boltzmann, already working on his own first great paper, was entranced." Ultimately, Maxwell "was able to work out formulae not only for viscosity but for diffusion, heat conduction and other properties, which agreed with known experimental results. It was a seminal paper. He had not only corrected and extended his earlier work but had greatly strengthened the theory that gases (and, by extension, all forms of matter) were composed of molecules. Most of all, he had set the theory on a firm base, on which he, Boltzmann and others could build." (Basil Mahon, <i>The Man who Changed Everything: The Life of James Clerk Maxwell</i>).<br/><br/> Following Maxwell's paper is the fifth installment of Faraday's famous <i>Experimental Researches in Magnetism and Electricity</i>.. Large 4to (301 x 230 mm), pp. 49-88 in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, Vol. 157, part 1, entire issue offered here: uncut and unopned in original light green printed wrappers, light wear to top of psine, otherwise very fine, custom folding case.

        Mitchell's New General Atlas?

      S. Augustus Mitchell Folio, original cloth with leather spine and corners, 47 colored maps. Joints cracked, spine and edges rubbed and worn, wear on corners of back cover is significant with tears, exposing the cardboard, piece missing from spine, signature on front endpapers, preliminaries show a some modest browning, New York map with tears at lower margin, and at the lower end of center fold, some foxing, staining and soiling throughout, but maps are generally bright and clean. Of the 47 maps in this atlas, four are double page, and 22 relate to the U.S. Many of the maps have great color and detail, especially the maps of the United States, Texas, South America and Asia. Despite some soiling and a little staining, these maps are among the most attractive from the Mitchell's series. Signature on the front endpaper, dated 1861, appears to be the signature of Charles Colton. Old note to Colton from C.W. Eddins, bookseller, from a later date is laid in.

        A New Township Map Of The State Of New York

      New York, 1860. No Binding. Near Fine. 24 x 30 inches. Lithograph with original hand color; slight fold wear, mounted on rice, a bright, excellent example. A rare, visually rich map of New York State, featuring a plan of Central Park just after its completion in 1859. Unique in our experience, at least in the realm of maps, the plan of Central Park extends westward to include the Upper West Side, the Hudson River, and the Palisades. The Upper West Side is seen here as a largely agrarian landscape with dwellings few and far between. In the plan of Central Park, the Bow Bridge divides what is today called The Lake into separate Gentlemen&#39;s and Lady&#39;s skating ponds. The map, as its title suggests, is notable for dividing showing the boundaries of the state&#39;s towns and cities and highlighting each in color. This is achieved with admirable clarity. The map has excellent railroad information that includes all of Connecticut. Tables to the right provide the populations of counties in 1860 (hence our dating of the map) and of the various wards of New York City, providing figures for both whites and "colored." To the right of the title is a portrait of De Witt Clinton, the sixth governor of New York State, who was largely responsible for the completion of the Erie Canal, which was being superseded by the many rail lines shown on this map. The map&#39;s elegant border and all around attention to graphic appeal suggests that it was intended as a decorative object for display, which may account for its rarity.

      18. Very Good. [EHON] Mikuma Katen, artist. KINSEI KIJIN-DEN, 5 vols. Kyoto, Edo & Osaka. n.d. [1860&#39;s?]. String-bound Japanese-style fukuro toji, in textured blue-grey covers with printed paper title labels. 40 single page and 2 double page b+w woodcuts, largely depicting the subject matter of the title: TALES OF ECCENTRICS FROM RECENT YEARS. Originally printed in 1790, this is a deservedly famous and oft-reprinted work in Japan. The KIJIN_DEN catalogues the eccentricities and eccentrics of the late 18th Century - a time of florescence of the "bunjin" literati ideal in Japan. The bunjin created an esthetically pure environment in the midst of the bustle (and corruption) of everyday life. The initial exemplars were those scholars and artists who withdrew from public life in China after the fall of the Ming Dynasty to the alien Manchus in the mid-17th Century. The KIJIN-DEN represents one of the efforts by the Japanese to domesticate a Chinese cultural import and find native representatives of the literati ideal. The KIJIN-DEN is interesting for its exploration of the art world in Japan- for example, there is a domestic scene of the painters Ikeno Taiga and wife Gyokuran, among others. Indeed, there are many women depicted in the KIJIN-DEN. (See JAPANESE WOMEN ARTISTS 1600-1900) Also see Ryerson 416, Mitchell 364, Hillier/Ravicz 22. The condition is very good over all, the printings are late (this edition being some 60-70 years after the original printing by Hayashi Bunkindo). There was a second series done some few years later, but this first series is complete as issued in 5 volumes.

When Comstock disposed of his holdings, the lode became a scene of furious activity, centering on Virginia City. Of the three mining companies established there in the early 1860s, Gould and Curry was the largest, employing 635 men and influencing local elections. .

      Nurnberg: [circa 1860]. Folding map, dissected into 21 sections and linen- backed as issued, hand coloured in outline. Five inset maps or plans, including a large inset of the American West. Folds into period cloth covers. 21 1/2 x 28 3/4 inches. Scarce issue of a highly detailed German emigration map showing the routes to the west. The map depicts the United States as far west as Fort Kearny, with substantial portions of Texas, Kansas, Nebraska and Dakota shown in detail. As the cartouche suggests, the cartographic information is derived from J. Calvin Smith and H. S. Tanner. Various issues of the map were produced, with varying insets and detail, from 1853 onwards. This map shows Texas divided into counties dated between 1846 and 1852 (Wharton County is shown, but Orange County is not), West Virginia has not yet been separated from Virginia and much of the transcontinental railroad system is still proposed.

      Des Moines. 1860.. 15pp. Original printed wrappers. Minor soiling and wear. Near fine. One of the rarest and most important documents regarding the John Brown Conspiracy. Coppic fled to Iowa after riding with John Brown at Harper&#39;s Ferry on October 16, 1859. One month after his arrival in Iowa, where he was met with sympathy, Coppic was discovered by an agent of Virginia and charged as a fugitive from justice. Governor Kirkwood refused to comply with the demand to turn over Coppic, alleging insufficient evidence, but was forced to surrender him upon the second demand, but Coppic had disappeared. In this message Kirkwood defends his course of action, denies Letcher&#39;s "insinuations of my sympathy with the crimes lately committed in Virginia," and accuses him of trying to increase sectional prejudice and of supporting those who seek "to destroy the Union if they cannot control it."
