        In Search of Shipbuilding Timber during Civil War in Bosnia and Herzegovina

      [Bosnia and Herzegovina, 1860-1861] - Unpublished manuscript fair journal of an expedition to Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1860, with a brief tour to Albania in January 1861, by Thomas Laslett, a leading timber purveyor for the Royal Navy's Admiralty, seeking a further supply of oak for building large frigates and wooden battleships. Penned in 1881 "in a readable form" after retiring from active service, and drawing from this original journal. 8vo. 179 pages in manuscript, plus 3 single page preface signed by the author. Volume measures 18 x 22 cm. A fascinating account of the nineteenth century timber trade entering Turkey. This expedition was especially dangerous, taking place during the Herzegovina Uprising. Pressed for prolific supplies of timber for shipbuilding to maintain naval supremacy, and ultimately commercial advantage over competing nations, the Royal Navy dispatched their leading purveyor/inspector into an unsettled nation of civil turmoil - to Bosnia and Herzegovina during the Serbian insurrection which had been ongoing since 1852. With notable diplomatic contacts to assist and influence his mission, and surely with handsome recompense, Laslett agrees to undertake the task of locating, inspecting, and securing untapped sources of high quality timber, therefore venturing into the unsettled and remote wilds of the Balkan Peninsula, where thieves and anarchists thrived. The instability of the nation, coupled with the challenges of travelling where foreigners are scarcely seen, results in a riveting travellogue, far more so than a survey report. Most often sleeping in the rudimentary Turkish inn of sorts, known as khan or a caravanserai, Laslett and his party frequently sleep in intervals, each rotating as a watchman due to the high numbers of vandals lurking about. Upon landing on the eastern Adriatic Sea coast in Croatia, by way of Makarska and Metkovic, Laslett proceeds to Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina where he makes his arrangements. Here he receives warning of the precarious state of the country. Indeed he travelled in a dangerous time, during the Herzegovina Uprising, Luka Vukalovic and ethnic Serbs in the Herzegovina region waging a revolt against the Ottoman Empire which had declared that it would disarm the Serbs. From Mostar he ventures on horseback to cross the Dianric Alps, together with a guide and a party which included Turkish policemen for protection. Most prudently, always noting and assessing his surroundings and individuals in the vicinity, he makes his way as far as Banja Luka and Stari-Majdan. Turning back towards the coast, he visits Prijedor, Kozarac, Dirventa, Doboj, Tuzla, and Sarajevo, passing through innumerable modest rural villages along the way. Frequently these localities were harassed by bandits and errant transient sorts. Finally returning safely to Mostar, on the morning of his departure he learns of a public execution having just taken place. His return to England was via Metrovic and Croatia's walled city of Ragusa [now called Dubrovnik which means "oak grove"], then by steamer to Corfu, where he enquired about the possibility of inspecting oak timber in Albania. Here he also dined with Admiral Sir William Fanshawe Martin, Baronet, and Commander-in-Chief of the Mediterranean Fleet. On 29 December 1860, while at Corfu, Laslett receives correspondence which motivates him to quickly make way for Durrazo [Durrës] in Albania. Alas, winter conditions, coupled with sparse habitation in the alpine forest regions, prohibited travel and inspection until a more favourable season. Intent on searching every region within his reach, he proceeded however to Austria to inspect the forests in the historic wine growing state of Styria, and returned to Croatia with the same objective. At Kotoriba, he travelled by railcar to Kaniza, making then a short drive to a forest on the grounds of the "King of the Belgians." The King's inspector gave him a tour of the sawmill which was used for timber for the estate only, and then essentially ushered him out of the forest. The volume concludes with a summary of the expedition and a two-page data chart of his timber survey. Excerpts from the manuscript: "in 1860 the Storekeeper General of the Navy finding the pressure for the supply of timber to the Royal Dockyards very great and ever increasing, considered it important... that even further sources should if possible be opened without delay." "I therefore took an early opportunity to call upon the Honorable R. [Robert] Dundas Storekeeper General of the Navy to receive his commands... Further I called upon the Hydrographer of the Admiralty... then... upon Sir William Hooker, the Superintendent of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew to ascertain from him any late reports extant upon the forests of Bosnia..." [Metkovic in Croatia] "... a letter from Mr. Holmes and also one from Mr. Zohrab informing me that owing to the critical state of the province it would be necessary to proceed with great caution with our work..." [James Ernest Napoleon Zohrab 1830-1891 was British Vice-Consul of Bosnia, stationed at Sarajevo, and best known for his report from Sarajevo in 1860 on treatment of Christians in the Ottoman Empire.] "... my task would prove to be a delicate one, if not one of considerable difficulty..." "... a rumour was current in town on the 21st that 54 Christians had been massacred by some Musselmen Turks at a village upon the Montenegroan frontier, and immediately after news came that Prince Daniel of Montenegro had been assassinated while walking on the Quay of Cattaro..." "... the whole of the Herzegovina was in an unsettled state, the people being only kept from open revolt by the presence of 4 Battalions of Turkish troops, at Mostar, and other 8 Battalions scattered in various provinces..." "A letter came to me from the Admiralty to inspect some oak timber in the Austrian dominions, which had been offered by Mr. Balfour the then contractor for the supply of Italian oak timber to the Navy." "... we should start from Mostar for [Mount] Liubaska...owing to the entire absence of roads, and the rough rocky track we had to travel over, the animals often finding it difficult to get sure footing... the heat being very oppressive... four hours more... brought us to Liubaska, a small town with a castle perched high upon a rock rising abruptly out of the general level of the township..." "From information picked up by people we met we learned that the forest had been cut over many years since and the timber taken away for the most part to Dalmatia for building purposes..." "Mr. Giracovitch went out upon the plain below us with his gun for a little shooting, and got insulted by some Turks he met with there. As he called for help, some of our men went to his assistance, the cavass [Turkish armed police officer] being amongst them... reaching the scene of the conflict he fired both his pistols and drew his sword... I rushed into the fray, joined in the scuffle, and the strangers were soon subdued. The cavass got hold of the principal offender... secured his hands behind his back... the bound man we marched to our camp... threatening to take him with us to Drinovya [Drinovci]... We kept him until we were ready to leave the place. He was then set free with a caution not to give any further trouble... he cried lustily all the time we had him at our mercy." "... when in the vicinity of Stolatz [Stolac] met with a paved footway or Bridle path road which I understood ran from that town to Buna [Blagaj?]..." "Mostar... the Turks... followed me about... staring with apparent astonishment at my style and costume being unlike their own... The bazaar which was a very good one, and where a great business seemed always going on... had fewer of my visits than it would otherwise had done. The suburban part of the town of Mostar had a bad reputation, and I was advised that it would be hardly prudent to venture there... At the foot of the bridge upon the right bank is the prison... large barracks for the troops of the Sultan..." "From Mostar to Seraijevo... 13 September 1860... with me one Zaptic [Turkish police officer] and two other attendants to manage the horses, and look after the baggage &c. This small escort the Dragoman of the British Vice Consulate said he considered would be sufficient as the road or track was guarded by Armed Policemen... over the most dangerous ground if not the entire distance." "... to Porina at the foot of the mountain range which here forms part of the Dinaric Alps... the track very steep... 8 hours counting from the time we left Porina, we halted at the Khan of Boreka [a caravanserai or Turkish inn]..." "On the 17th... From Illeja [Ilijas] we found a fairly good road to Seraijeva [Sarajevo]... I went at once to the British Consulate to call upon Mr. Holmes... relating all incidents of the journey... all matters connected with the inspection of the forests in the Herzegovina... he felt sure they were very extensive." "... we left Travonik to resume our journey, travelling for about 3 hours only, and then stopping at Carola... At the Khan we got a room to ourselves, clean and tidy, but bare of furniture as usual... we discovered these and worse characters. We were advised to be watchful over our baggage and to take care of ourselves at night... we agree to sleep by turns..." "Jaicre [Jajce] was formerly a walled city and strongly fortified place, but at the time of my visit, it was in a sadly dilapidated condition, and almost in ruins." "... the town of Baniluka [Banja Luka], a place of considerable size, with many mosques, baths, khans, &c.... we had a wish to call upon the Kaimacan [a provincial Turkish governor] to acquaint him with the object of our visit to the place, and to seek for information about the forests in the district.... he received us with great politeness... shewed him the letter from the Pasha of Seraijevo, which he read with interest, and said he would help us as far as lay in his power, but... near Baniluka [Banja Luka]... he thought most of the fine oak trees had been cut down...he would find us a good Zaptic guide, who would take us through any part of Croatia..." "... we were getting into a wild piece of country... some 3 or 4 miserable looking huts which served for the people employed there in something of iron ore..." "... rode in to Stari-Majdan, a small town... where we rested well... in about an hour came to a forest of oaks, which occupied our attention for a considerable time, meeting with many good trees... it stretched towards the rivers Save and Sanna..." "Leaving the forest... saw in the distance some 3 or 4 or perhaps half a dozen huts that we took to be the homes of the shepherds... a very poor place... it was getting dark with no village near... we had to be content to share with a man and his wife, two tall girls and two small children a single room, while the cow occupied one side of it... All therefore we attempted to do, was to sit or lounge round the fire in the centre, not liking to undress, for fear our revolvers if laid aside, would not be safe..." "... proceed to Bihach [Bihac]... The Kaimacan ordered coffee and pipes as customary and entered quite freely and fully into our business, sent for several men... We also endeavoured to learn whether if any useful timber were found in the district, it could be taken from thence through Dalmatia to the Adriatic... they were very clear upon the point that it would be impracticable..." "Bihach [Bihac]... This place had also been formerly fortified, but at the time of my visit was almost in ruins... The Mudir having heard that strangers had arrived at the Khan, came to see us... he would find a guide to take us to Novi... to get to the forests." "We left Krupa [Bosanska Krupa] under direction of our new guide; and almost immediately after starting found that we had to cross the river Unna [Una] by a rickety and dilapitated bridge... " "... After about 3 hours we came to Priedor [Prijedor], a busy market town..." "We went at once to call upon the Bey... gave us a good dinner... the Mudir of Kozoratz [Kozarac]... they said the country thereabouts was infested with Brigands, and that some 12 or 15 in number were known to be lurking in the neighbourhood. These fellows had been hunted by the Police, and they had fired upon them, wounding some of the staff..." "We had consulted the Mudir about the journey, and he said the place had a very bad reputation, he advised 4 additional zaptics and said he would go a short distance with us..." "The weather was intensely cold, there was about 3 inches of snow upon the ground... before long as we got higher up beyond the range of the oaks, we came upon pine trees in considerable quantities, and saw that they covered all the most elevated ridges... magnificent dimensions, and being mature were fit for constructive purposes. There was no sign anywhere that any of these fine trees had been worked as articles of commerce... and for a long way up the slopes, oak trees were abundant." "Our guides now said that they knew of a ruined and dilapitated monastery where we might get shelter for the night... 15th October. The rooms of the old mastery were anything but comfortable, though fairly weather proof..." "At Gradiska we therefore hired a couple of waggons... to get a little relief from riding on horseback..." "... we arrived at Banaluka [Banja Luka]... a Frenchman had cut down some millions of trees for staves for casks at the place we mentioned..." "... we took an Easterly course for the mountains... in the direction of Perniavor [Prnjavor]... the guide said the forest was beyond... sure enough we were soon in a most luxuriant forest of oaks... We inspected this thoroughly... and saw everywhere an abundance of fine oak trees of the same description as those we saw in Turkish Croatia..." "... came to the village of Zorstella, and here our men wished to stay for breakfast... endeavoured to treat with the inhabitants for such food as they had to spare... all the men belonging to the place had gone to the fields, or were away upon the mountains looking after their flocks, consequently there were only the women and children remaining, and these not being Christians, but Mahomedans, were scared and hid themselves..." "... a rugged and difficult mountain to climb, fog came on, and soon some snow fell... a little apprehensive that we might lose our way... found a good sized Khan solitarily situated and placed there for the especial benefit of travellers, who like ourselves could not reach the next village before dark... the most motley race of Bosnians, Serbians, Austrians, and others... merchants, drovers and I know not what, gathering round a central fire... We were only too glad after riding for 9 hours to get in and share the floor with them." "5th November... near to Seraijevo, and back to our starting place, after an absence of 41 days... a long tedious and trying journey... much fatigue... hardships from occasional deficiency of food, bad lodging, ill health..." "This wintry weather setting in upset my plans and prevented me getting from Seraijevo into Macedonia and Albania... I therefore completely abandoned it, and arranged to take the alternative route... over the mountains back to Mostar." "23rd November... at about 7 pm we rode into Mostar... reached Mr. Zohrabs' H.B.M. Vice Consul... kindly offered a bed... Next morning at break of day and before I was up, there was an execution by decapitation of a man, for the murder of a peasant, this took place in the open street, not far from Mr. Zohrabs house. The wife and sister of the peasant were there to witness the execution in conformity with the law of the country which required them to be present... The man's head was taken away immediately by the officials, but the body was left exposed upon the road for some time after..." "The Herzegovina, in the opinion of Mr. Zohrab, was at this time in a very disturbed state and he considered that the people in many villages lying between Mostar and Montenegro were in little better than a state of revolt against the government. The quarrels between the Mahomedan and Christian villages were also common enough... government unable to keep order." "29th December... I thought I should move without further delay for Durrazo [Durrës] ... engaged Giovanni Casciotte as Dragoman... arrived at 3 pm on the last day of the year." "1st January 1861... As had been arranged yesterday the Austrian Consul and myself went to call upon the Mudir... to learn from him what assistance he could give me if I set out from Durazzo [Durrës] to visit the forests... men came in... they said the oak forests were at the source of the river Frande, a tributary of the river Mattai [Mat]... the forests belonged to a Greek Bishop who was living at Debrimisti, near Tomo in the Tirani [Tirana]..." "The Mudir's men said a Salvador Alessandria Fernandez of Malta had cut down some 7000-8000 oak trees there... said there were oak forests near the Lake of Okrina, but that it would be extremely difficult to get them down from there to the coast... walls of rock... abrupt precipices... " "As to getting to any of these forests at the present time the men considered it to be next to impracticable, the plains being covered with water, and the mountains with snow; further they said there was no shelter to be had, for the villages were few and far between, and anyone attempting the journey would be likely to perish from exposure... to defer the visit to a more favourable opportunity." "At this interview with the Mudir it was mentioned that in 1813 the French Govenment were taking oak timber from Albania for the construction of their fleet, but that for some reason they did not continue to draw long from that source. Also that Mehemet Ali a few years since had drawn supplies of oak timber from Albania, to build his ships at Alexandria." "6th January. Having regard to the advice given to me not to attempt to get into the Albania forests, and the weather being bad, I gave up the idea of travelling inland... " End Excerpts. Thomas Laslett (1811-1887), Timber Inspector for the Admiralty, began his career as a Purveyor of Timber at the age of 22, his first four expeditions seeing him to New Zealand to procure high-quality timber suitable for mast and spars for large Royal Navy ships, which required him to penetrate sometimes hostile tribal regions. Laslett was born at Poplar, Middlesex on 18 June 1811 and was baptised at the East India Dock Chapel there. He was the eldest child of Thomas Laslett, a shipwright, and as such had begun apprenticing as a shipwright before being presented with the opportunity to work abroad. Indeed having found his calling and impressed the Admiralty, he was sent on three further missions to remote places with important timber stocks. As Timber Inspector for the Admiralty, from 1847 to 1849 he was commissioned to inspect teak in Burma, mainly Moulmein (Mawlamyine) and environs. He was employed to survey and report upon some forests near Russia in Asia Minor, and in 1859 made an expedition to the Anatolian Highlands around Bursa in Turkey during the period of Ottoman reign. An expedition took him through Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1860 (then the Ottoman provinces of Bosnia Vilayet and Vilayet of Kosovo). These latter two expeditions, again to little-known remote regions, were undertaken in hopes of locating untapped sources of high-quality oak. Settling near home, he was Timber Inspector of Woolwich Dockyard until 1869 and for many years later Timber Inspector for the Admiralty. In 1875 Laslett published a book titled "Timber and Timber Trees: Native and Foreign". He retired from active service in April 1880 and was subsequently employed by the Admiralty to make special surveys of timber on various occasions at home and abroad. He was also commissioned by the Society of Arts to report on timber exhibited in the Colonial and Indian Exhibition at London in 1886. He suffered a heart attack and died the at Woolwich Dockyard Railway Station on 6 April 1887. Bosnia and Herzegovina has a long tradition in forestry and wood processing, going back to the second half of the 19th century. Over fifty percent of the country is covered in forests, which today that serve both the furniture and the construction industries. Beech, oak, ash, pine and fir, as well as more specialized woods such as walnut, apple and cherry, are exported as raw material, half fabricates and finished products. [With enhanced economic and military power, both France and Great Britain were increasing seaborne commerce, piracy, and political authority in Mediterannean regions. To remain effective however, naval supremacy was paramount. Until the 1860s, power rested on ample supplies of skilled seamen, suitable timber, iron, and sundry stores. Timber supply shortages had been a concern for a century by this time, and forests around the globe were being exhausted faster than they could recover. Large ships constructed for strength required 100 year old stout oak for framing, and oak grown in isolation for knee supports to the hull. The Mediterranean had good quality oak, suitable for the job. Both French and English agents scoured the region to secure their supply, and ultimately their naval and commercial power. While a sea-borne transportation revolution was imminent, steam power soon to replace wind navigation at the turn of the century, during the 1860s, sailing vessels still surpassed steam vessels by large numbers.]

      New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1860. First Edition. The first issue of the American edition with two quotations on the verso of the half-title. In the publisher's embossed green cloth with moderately bright titles in gold on spine.~A well-preserved the first American appearance of "the most important biological work ever written" [Freeman, 377]. ~~It is difficult to overstate the impact of this book. That Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection had a transformative on science goes without saying; the impact on religion, philosophy, sociology and politics has been similarly transformative. ~"Darwin not only drew an entirely new picture of the workings of organic nature; he revolutionized our methods of thinking and our outlook on the natural order of things. The recognition that constant change is the order of the universe had been finally established and a vast step forward in the uniformity of nature had been taken" [PMM, 344, re British Edition]. ~~This copy with some quite subtle reinforcement to the rear endpaper; an otherwise unsophisticated copy with a bit of wear to the corners and the spine extremities and pencilled notes on the verso of the rear blank leaf. There is a tiny chip to the top of the front endpaper. The green pebbled cloth shows little wear, and the embossing is quite sharp. A tidy and attractive copy of the First American Edition of the most important book of the 19th century.~ (Freeman, 377; PMM, 344).

        2 Ship Logs from the Schooner Henry P. Russell July 25th, 1860 to June 21st, 1863; and from May 15, 1865 to October 7th, 1865

      [New York], 1860. Ledger. Fair. Lot (2) folio ledgers with marbled paper covered boards, worn leather corners and leather back strips. The first ledger records begin in July 1860 and has 138 pages. The second ledger entries start in late 1861 and has 142 pages. Both ledgers spines are taped and boards are worn with large sections of marbled paper missing. Some of the pages in the logs are loose and starting to detach. 10 pages in the first ledger have cut out sections ranging from half to a quarter page of missing content. The second ledger also has cut out sections with 8 pages of similar size content missing. Several pages are brown stained upper edges and other pages contain small ink stains and occasional dark smudges. The front and rear end sheets of both ledgers are damp stained. Written at the top sections of the logs are departure locations and arrival places. Each page consist of columns but no lines. Printed titled columns include "Hours, knots, Fath's, Courses, Winds, L. W., Variat'n and Remarks." Recorded measurements and written narratives are clearly legible. The master of the Schooner H. P. Russell in 1860 was L. Mankin. Mankin's entries make up all but the last 18 pages of the first ledger. Stephen. C Nickerson, Master recorded the last 18 pages in the first log from May 15, 1865 to October 7, 1865. L. Mankin was in charge of keeping records in the second ledger from December 24, 1861 to June 8th, 1862. The next log sheet was removed. Log entries begin again June 30th, 1862 in the hand of the next ship Master, P. Nickerson. The last dated record in the second log was June 21, 1863 while Nickerson and the H. P. Russell were anchored in New Orleans. According to the written records and narratives kept in the ship logs the Schooner Henry P. Russell (H. P. Russell), a northern merchant vessel, conducted trade along the Atlantic Coast and Gulf of Mexico just before, during and after the Civil War. While the H. P. Russell sailed on its voyages the Masters of the H. P. Russell recorded daily measurements, sailing routes, wind and weather conditions, ship maintenance, operation issues, etc. The commanders also recorded the passing of landmarks and light-houses, quantities of cargo picked up, the occasional exchange of colors with other ships, and the general health of crew. The H. P. Russell shipped cotton and rice from Charleston, South Carolina as late as January 1861. March 1861 records the departure and voyage of the H. P. Russell towards Charleston but there is no record in the remarks section of delivering or receiving any goods while in the Charleston Harbor. After departing Charleston in March 1861 the ship set sail for Rio De Janeiro. Other voyages recorded in the logs include round trips from New York to Havana, Trinidad, New Orleans and the Tortugas. These logs books do not directly mention the Civil War or any problems associated with the conduct of business due to the war. However, what these logs do provide is primary source material, sometimes repetitive, of a ship's travels conducting business "as usual" during the war, sometimes not too far removed the action.

        Toronto, Canada West" and "The Great Eastern"

      Charles Magnus, New York 1860 - Hand-colored lettersheets measuring 8-1/2 x 21 inches. 4to. The two lettersheets here are unusual productions for Magnus, most of his lettersheets featured images of New York and its environs or of the Civil War. The first of these two is based on Edwin Whitefield's "Toronto, Canada West" first published in 1854. Magnus is known to have reproduced it in the late 1850s. When launched in 1858, the Great Eastern was easily the largest ocean liner of its day. She was subsequently used to lay the Trans-Atlantic telegraph cable in 1865. This lettersheet was almost certainly issued between those two dates.Charles Magnus emigrated to New York with his family in the late 1840s. His older brother published the weekly German language newspaper, Deutsche Schnellpost, and it was there that Charles learned the trade, eventually going out on his own. In the guises of a publisher, map dealer, bookseller and stationer, he issued more than a thousand pieces of illustrated stationery - lettersheets, envelopes, song sheets, as well as prints - usually copying the work from other sources without attribution, sometimes altering the images slightly. He continued to use lithography and hand-coloring long after other publishers turned to photomechanical reproduction processes.Lettersheets were a convenient and thrifty form of stationery in an era in which postage was calculated on the number of sheets used. Folded in half, these four pages were charged as a single page. A little grubby, but very good.

        Wagon Road, Fort Smith to the Colorado River. Letter of the Secretary of War, The Report of Mr. Beale Relating to the Construction of a Wagon Road from Fort Smith to the Colorado River

      [Washington], 1860. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine. 36th Congress, 1st Session. House of Representatives Ex. Doc. No. 42. 91 pp, with folding map showing Beale's route from Fort Smith, Arkansas to Albuquerque in 1858-9. A fine copy in modern black buckram stamped in gilt on spine and upper board. In 1857, Beale-an accomplished frontiersman who had traversed the country from coast to coast six times bearing dispatches in the late 1840s-accepted a commission to survey a wagon road and establish a trade route along the 35th parallel from Fort Smith, Arkansas to Los Angeles. The expedition is noted in part for Beale's successful use of camels as pack animals. The wagon road began at Fort Smith and continued through the New Mexico Territory and Arizona Territory to Fort Defiance, before crossing the Colorado River near present-day Needles, California. The Mojave Road continued west from where Beale's Wagon Road met the Colorado River, through the Mojave Desert to Southern California. The part of the survey described in this report (Fort Smith to Albuquerque and back, primarily presented in the form of Beale's diary) was conducted in the winter of 1858-59, and Beale notes that it "affords a striking and gratifying proof of what I have stated heretofore of the route on which I have been employed, that winter offers no obstacle on that parallel to the passage of men and wagons, or travel of any description."

        A comparative grammar of the Sanskrit, Zend, Greek, Latin, Lithuanian, Gothic, German, and Sclavonic languages ... second edition.

      London & Edinburgh: Williams & Norgate; New York: B. Westermann & Co, 1860. 8vo (22.2 cm, 8.75"). 3 vols. in 1. [8], xvi, 456, [2], [457]–952, [2], [953]–1462, [2] pp. Second edition of Edward B. Eastwick's translation — the first English rendition — of Bopp's complete Grammar, which had originally appeared in German in six parts issued from 1833 through 1852. The preface notes that this second edition has been checked and approved by Professor Bopp himself, "so that numerous errors, which, from the great length of the work were perhaps hardly to be avoided in the first edition, have now been corrected." All three parts, with their separate title-pages, are here bound into one volume.    Bopp, who studied under de Sacy in Paris, was the chair of Sanskrit at the University of Berlin and a member of the Royal Prussian Academy; his work was highly influential in developing a morphology of Indo-European languages, and indeed dominated the field of comparative linguistics for a significant portion of the 19th century.         NSTC 2B41650. Contemporary half red morocco with paper-covered sides, spine with gilt-stamped title; sides and edges showing minor scuffing, spine slightly darkened. Front pastedown with bookseller's ticket of B. Westermann & Co., private collector's 19th-century bookplate, and institutional stamp (no other markings). Pages faintly age-toned. A sturdy copy of this hefty tome.

Original brown lithographed wrappers, with illustrations to front and back, with folded gatherings loosely inserted, still uncut and unopened; 16, [32] pp. With thirty color lithograph plates. A very good copy. Rare Czech alphabet book for little children, with thirty lithographed plates featuring a letter of the alphabet, printed in blue and red in various typefaces, accompanied by an illustration and captions in Czech and German. While the Czech alphabet uses forty-two distinct letters, these include various modifications of the twenty-six Latin letters using diacritical marks. The present alphabet book only includes five letters with diacritics, and skips the relatively infrequently used "W" altogether. The printed section lists sample syllables and longer sentences for basic reading and recitation practice, an overview of the ABC and a multiplication table. One of the earliest Czech alphabet books, published in the South Bohemian province by the publisher Alois Landfras, an important figure in Czech publishing during the period of national awakening. According to the Czech National Library catalog, the book was published between 1860 and 1864.

        Quadrupeds of North America

      1860. AUDUBON, John James and BACHMAN, John. The Quadrupeds of North America. New York: George R. Lockwood, [1860]. Three volumes. Royal octavo, contemporary three-quarter green morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. $19,000.Handsome Lockwood octavo edition, illustrated with 155 magnificent hand-colored lithographic plates of American mammals from the polar bear to the buffalo.Having built his reputation with the legendary Birds of America, Audubon began an equally imposing project: to capture on paper the astonishing variety of American mammals. Many of the beautiful hand-colored plates are justly famous, including the polar bear, the American buffalo, and the jaguar. Bachman, AudubonÂ’s long-time collaborator, said of the Quadrupeds, “They are the most beautiful and perfect specimens of the art. I doubt whether there is anything in the world of natural history like them, I do not believe that there is any man living that can equal them” (Ford). The octavo edition of the Quadrupeds, first published by Victor Audubon in 31 separate parts between 1849 and 1854 (as well as in book form those same years), was reissued in 1860 and 1870 by George Lockwood, who had come into possession of the original stones. This present edition is the 1860 imprint, retaining the original Introduction in Volume I (dated 1846), with “1849” on the copyright pages and without LockwoodÂ’s Preface (which appeared in the later edition and is dated 1870). Bannon & Clark, 76. See Ford, 217. Plate impressions fresh and colors true, contemporary morocco bindings handsome. A fine set.
