        Why be Good Tempered? One page of Manuscript in Thackeray's hand from volume I of his novel "The Newcomes". Signed and dated, May 30, 1860.

      1860 21 lines on recto only of single quarto sheet.The Newcomes was published in twenty four numbers, 1853-55. It followed the success of Vanity Fair (1847), which rapidly shot Thackeray to fame, and the subsequent novels Pendennis (1848-50) and Henry Esmond (1852). This manuscript was probably requested by a charitable organisation or written out for a friend. This is a playful page advocating the benefits of being bad tempered: 'Surely a fine furious temper, if accompanied with a certain magnanimity and bravery ... is one of the most precious and fortunate gifts with w[hi]c[h] a gentleman, a lady can be endowed ... 'The lazy grow tired of contending with him; the timid coax and flatter him; and as almost every one is timid or lazy, a bad tempered man is want to have his own way ... She [the bad tempered female] has the place which she likes in the drawing room ... if the family are taking their tour in the summer it is she who ordains whether they shall go, and where they shall stop'. But God forbid you are a person of mild manners and temper: 'nobody cares whether we are pleased or not. Our wives go to the Milliners, & send us the bill, and we pay it ... our sons loll in the arm chair we should like ... and smoke in the dining room, our taylors fit us badly; our butchers give us the youngest mutton ... and our servants go out whenever they like'.

        POPULAR TALES OF THE WEST HIGHLANDS. Orally Collected with a Translation by J. F. Campbell ..

      Edinburgh: Edmonston and Douglas, 1860.. Octavo, two volumes: pp. [i-v] vi [vii] viii-xii [ix] x-cxxxii [cxxxiii] cxxxiv-cxxxv [cxxxvi] [1] 2-353 [354: blank]; [i-v] vi-xiii [xiv] [1] 2-478 [479-480: blank][note: preliminary leaves in volume one are complete despite gap in pagination], original decorated maroon cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, rear panels stamped in blind, top and fore edges untrimmed, bottom edges rough trimmed, gray coated endpapers. First edition. A presentation copy with signed inscription by Campbell on the half title page of volume 1: "Tom Taylor / From / J. F. Campbell / Decr. 22 / 60." John Francis Campbell of Islay (1821-1885) is perhaps best known as a pioneer collector of Gaelic folklore, systematically recording the Gaelic oral tradition principally in the Scottish Highlands and Western Islands. Campbell published the first two volumes of his groundbreaking, highly influential POPULAR TALES OF THE WEST HIGHLANDS in 1860. Two more volumes (not included here) followed in 1862. The resourceful Campbell, a descendant of Highland chieftains living in the midst of his own dying folk tradition, "came up with a brilliant idea which would transform field collecting. He employed and trained collectors expert in Gaelic and born in the Highlands and the Western Islands to interview and record the storytellers in their dialects ... In a remarkably short time [he] captured a whole archive of folk tales. He printed 86 in three volumes and announced in his final note at the end of volume four in 1862 that his aides had sent him a total of 791 stories ... more were coming in all the time, and yet whole districts were still untouched ... Campbell himself never placed more tales in print and could not even spare time to oversee a second edition, which did not appear until after his death ... Folklorists are content with POPULAR TALES. In addition to the precious texts and variants of Highland stories in English and Gaelic, the author supplied an absorbing introduction of well over a hundred pages, copious observations on elements and variations in the tales, and a fourth volume containing a monographic essay on the Ossianic controversy with additional papers on 'Traditions,' 'Mythology,' 'A Plea for Gaelic,' 'Highland Dress,' 'Celtic Art' and 'Music.'" - Dorson, The British Folklorists, pp. 392-402. Volume 1 has been professionally rebacked with the original cloth spine panel preserved, just a bit of wear at spine ends and corner tips, short closed split along outer rear joint of volume 2, a very good copy.

        Nature Printed Leaves of Plants [spine title].

      C. 1860. - Folio. 440 x 290 mm. pp. 23 double sided prints. Printed in green with hand drawn purple straight ruled borders, bound in contemporary half morocco, recently rebacked, lettered in gilt on the spine. A rare collection of nature printing in colour and of woody, rather than fleshy, specimens. Due to the more resistant nature of the specimens there are significant impressions on to the paper. The art of nature printing originates in the 13th Century but it seems to have been the 1850s which saw a serious interest in England and Scotland with the work of William Aitken, Ferguson Branson and Thomas Moore. They all used a mechanical process to impress an image on lead or zinc, subsequently electroplating a printing plate on copper. However nature printing, in its simplest form, was easy to master and was also adopted enthusiastically by amateurs who would use the technique for collecting and recording plants, seaweeds and even moths and butterflies. The simple inking of a specimen, laying it onto paper, or between two sheets, and pressed with weights or a roller would produce an accurate and pleasing image to satisfy naturalists and artists. Although from different sources, our two examples have a remarkable similarity which marks them out from most commercially produced volumes; they are both printed double sided, i.e. the specimens are inked both sides and pressed with a sheet of paper top and bottom to give a ?not-quite? mirror image. They also differ too. The smaller, and presumed earlier example is more akin to art, with multiple specimens arranged on a single sheet, with no intent to show individual species. The larger, and later example is more purposefully set out, individual specimens to a single page with a particularly striking green ink used in the process. It is likely that in both cases only a single example, or at least a very few, were produced. The volumes have both been bound up from individual sheets, showing the images face to face as they were printed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Pèlerinage a la Mecque et a Médine. Précédé d'un aperçu sur l'islamisme et suivi de considérations générales au point de vue sanitaire et d'un appendice sur la circoncision.Cairo, Imprimerie Nationale, 1894. 8vo. With 19 plates with reproductions of photographs. Modern green cloth.

      - S. Marmon, Eunuchs and sacred boundaries in Islamic society, p. 103; S. Sheehi, The Arab imago: a social history of portrait photography, 1860-1910, pp. 166-167. First and only edition of a report on the pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina written by the Egyptian doctor Saleh Soubhy. Soubhy worked as a health inspector at Cairo, and was appointed by khedive Abbas Hilmi II (1874-1944) to investigate the sanitary conditions of the Egyptian pilgrimage caravan to Mecca and Medina. Soubhy travelled to the Hijaz in 1888 and 1892, and published his experiences in the present work. "The French-educated doctor, Soubhy, wrote for a foreign audience in order to show both the sanctity and orderliness of the Hajj, regulated by quarantines and public health measures through which a great number of pilgrims flowed" (Sheehi). With this work, "a carefully composed defense of Islam" (Marmon), Soubhy also tried to portray Islam is as an acceptable religion to his European colleagues. The book also includes some important early photographs of Mecca and Medina, taken by Muhammad Saduq Bey (1832-1902), the first to photograph the holy cities, and al-Sayyid 'Abd al-Ghaffar (active 1880's).With a bookplate on paste-down. Upper outer corner of half-title restored, tiny piece of the same corner torn off from the title-page, browned throughout, half-title smudged, and a few plates slightly thumbed, otherwise in good condition.

        Sights and Scenes in Fair Japan.

      Tokyo: Imperial Government Railways.. (circa1910).. 50 delicate hand coloured collotype plates on high quality stiff card each captioned in English, presented in Japanese embroidered silk covered boards with tassle ties, All edges gilt., patterned gilt endpapers.The hinges of each image have been professionally repaired with Japanese paper and wheat starch paste. Neat pencilled annotations lower corners, leaves clean and bright. 26 x 38cm. This beautiful album proved very popular and was reprinted a number of times, in some editions all of the plates are in colour, as is the case with this copy, and at other times the edition only shows some plates in colour and while the others are in black and white. The work also appears in editions both with and without 2 maps, later editions in Western bindings. Although his name does not appear in this album it seems highly likely that this album was published by Ogawa Kazumasa (1860-1929). Described by Terry Bennett in his excellent work Japanese Photography in Japan 1850 - 1912 as a "Pivotal figure in early Japanese photography. He adapted cutting-edge Western technology in photo-printing processes to produce numerous half-tone and collotype publications which transformed the market.." The interesting and delicate scenes in this album include a number showing Japanese people at leisure, in a street scene, a crowd at a sumo match, people involved in their daily occupations and a number of temples, gardens and other places of interest to the early 20th century visitor to Japan. A very good copy of a charming album. .

        Journal of Researches into the Natural History and Geology

      London: John Murray,, 1860. of the Countries Visited During the Voyage of H.M.S. Beagle Round the World. Under the Command of Capt. Fitz Roy. Tenth Thousand. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, boards blocked in blind, brown coated endpapers. Engravings in the text. Front hinge partly split but holding, text block sound, light foxing to contents; an excellent copy in exceptionally bright cloth. Second edition, and the final definitive text. The Journal of Researches was first published as volume III of Fitzroy's Narrative of the surveying voyages of His Majesty's Ships Adventure and Beagle in 1839, and also issued as an independent volume at the same time. The second edition, extensively revised and reduced from about 224,000 words to 213,000, was first published in 1845 in the scarlet cloth of John Murray's Colonial and Home Library. It was reprinted in the same series in 1852, stated on the title page as a new edition, instead of second, although no changes had been made. The present edition is the next issue of the same second edition, and is the final text as Darwin left it. The parts from the original stereos are the same, but a postscript, dated 1 February 1860, is added to the preliminaries, and it is issued for the first time in a green cloth case of the same style as the first three editions of the Origin. "The page height is nearly two centimetres greater than before and the wider margins give the book a much better appearance." Darwin noted in his autobiography that "the voyage of the Beagle has been by far the most important event in my life and has determined my whole career…As far as I can judge of myself I worked to the utmost during the voyage from the mere pleasure of investigation, and from my strong desire to add a few facts to the great mass of facts in natural science. But I was also ambitious to take a fair place among scientific men…The success of this my first literary child always tickles my vanity more than that of any other books."

        [Pustaha].[Northern Sumatra, ca. 1860/1920?]. A manuscript (16 x 11.5 x 6 cm) in the old esoteric Hata Poda language used by the Batak "datu" (shamans), with the text written in the Batak script and the decorations and illustrations drawn, both in black ink on both sides of thin split-wood leaves (1.3 mm thick), with about 45 illustrations in the text and a few additional decorations. Made from a single long strip of thin split-wood, scored vertically across the (horizontal) grain and accordion-folded at the score lines, with the blank outside surface of the first and last leaf given a dark stain to serve as a front and back cover.

      A rare Batak divinatory manuscript written in the old Hata Poda language, used as a secret language by the Batak "datu" (shamans, magicians or "witch doctors"), and illustrated with about 45 small drawings in the text, mostly showing human figures and chickens or cocks, but also with some more mysterious diagrams. It is a sort of notebook or manual with instructions for various methods of divination and/or hints serving as reminders for the shaman already familiar with the methods. The subjects covered by the Pustaha have been summarized as the art of preserving life, the art of destroying life and astrology. It therefore combines elements of religion, medicine and astrology. Many of the divinations described in the present Pustaha are made by beheading a chicken or cock, letting it fall on the ground under cover of a basket, and interpreting the meaning of its position when uncovered. Such oracles giving auguries of good or ill fortune were often consulted before the construction of a new house, the contracting of a marriage and any other momentous occasion. The manuscript contains an occasional small stain, hole or crack, many probably present when the manuscript was first produced, and the outer edges of the pages are darkened, not obscuring the text, but the text, illustrations and decorations are otherwise in very good condition. Many of the folds have separated over part of their length, with one pair of leaves still attached only by a few fibres, and there are some small abrasions on the front, edges and especially the back, but the entire book remains remarkably well preserved. A rare and important record of Batak culture when it still survived relatively free from European and other outside influences.

        9 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 20 S., Kl.-8 u. 8. Gräfin Potocka gehörte zum engen Kreis der Mitarbeiter der Ztg. Czas. 1860-63 stellte sie zwischen den Krakauer Konservativen, welche sie im Kampf um die galiz. Autonomie tatkräftig unterstützte und dem Zentrum der poln. Emigration im Hotel Lambert in Paris sowie zu den offiziellen französ. Kreisen wichtige Kontakte her. Sie wirkte verdienstvoll als Präs. des Towarzystwa Dobroczynnosci (Wohltätige Ges.) in Krakau (Krakow) und war eine bekannte Kunstsammlerin (ÖBL). Es wurde gemunkelt, Potocka sei eine Urenkelin von Katharina der Großen. Der letzte zu Lebzeiten Chopins veröffentlichte Walzer war der polnischen Gräfin gewidmet. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Beiliegend ein vierseitiger eigenh. Brief (Entwurf bzw. Abschrift?) m. Unterschrift Mislins an die Gräfin. - ÖBL VIII, 228f.

        6 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 25 S., 8. [...] From the mid 1850s onwards OSullivan secretly takes part in the expansionist agenda of Prince Leopold, Duke of Brabant, thus becoming a member of the broad but informal network surrounding the prince. Together they develop a daring project, though one that will remain hypothetical, consisting of a Belgian military action during the Crimean War. OSullivan begins to work on a new definition of the concept of neutrality a concept that will be abandoned in exchange for territorial acquisition. The goal is that Belgium will become more independent of France through a deeper connection to the allies during the war and that territorial expansion will be on the Rhine, at the cost of Prussia, rather than of Holland, which is what the Duke of Brabant had in mind. A second line of thought concerns the aftermath of the Crimean War, when, in OSullivans opinion, the Ottoman position will be seriously weakened, making it possible for Belgium to occupy certain parts of the empire. OSullivan shows himself in his correspondence with the prince to be a hardliner expansionist, willing to topple the Sultan and replace him with a Christian, preferably Catholic, king recruited in Belgium, where a tradition of political neutrality existed. A few years later, upon the Duke of Brabants return from Constantinople via Trieste in May 1860, OSullivan delivers a memorandum to the prince entitled Mémoire sur la formation dune compagnie belge dans larchipel méditerranéen. This memo comprises a scheme to occupy an island in the eastern Mediterranean (Crete or Cyprus), that will be bought or leased from the Sultan, and provides a blueprint for commercial exploitation under the protection of Leopold I, with the Duke of Brabant as president of the Board of Directors [...] (Dr. Jan Anckaer). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878).

        OFFICIAL PROCEEDINGS OF THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION, HELD IN 1860, AT CHARLESTON AND BALTIMORE. PROCEEDINGS AT CHARLESTON, APRIL 23 - MAY 3. Prepared and Published Under the Direction of John Parkhurst, Recording Secretary

      Cleveland: Nevins' Print, Plain Dealer Job Office, 1860. 188pp. Dbd. Ink pen trial on titlepage. Light wear in foredge of titlepage and upper margin of final text leaf. Two text leaves printed on slightly folded paper, resulting in obscuration of some text. Good. The official record of a crucially important moment in American politics, the 1860 Democratic Convention(s), at which Stephen A. Douglas won the nomination and faced Republican nominee Abraham Lincoln in the general election. The first convention was held in Charleston in late April and early May, and was a rancorous affair. Douglas led the field of nine total candidates at Charleston, over the opposition of militant Southern Democrats (so-called "Fire Eaters"). Despite the fact that fifty-seven separate ballots were held, Douglas could not secure the necessary two-thirds majority of delegates. The delegates therefore adjourned and reconvened in Baltimore in June, where the committee voted to exclude certain delegates from Louisiana and Alabama who had been disruptive in Charleston. Douglas finally secured the nomination on the second ballot in Baltimore, and went on to lose the general election to Lincoln. The present text prints all the proceedings of the Charleston and Baltimore conventions, offering a detailed picture of American politics at their most fractious.
