CAMPBELL, Robert
W.J. Johnson, London, 1861. First English edition, the first with this introduction, and the first with Campbell's note to his Preface with additional biographical information, neither of which appeared in the American edition. Introduction by Sir Culling E. Eardley, Bart. Octavo. 145pp. Frontispiece portrait, tipped-in map. Publisher's brown cloth stamped in blind, titled in gilt. Gilt a bit faded, modest loss of cloth at the spine ends and a small split at the front joint, else very good or better. Inscribed by the author: "Rev. J. S. Martin, with the best respects of the Author. Sept. 20th, 1861." The very important account of Campbell's expedition with Martin R. Delaney to Africa exploring the possible return of African-Americans to the African continent. Indeed Campbell, a Jamaican of mixed race, moved to Africa after the expedition. The English edition is much less common than the American. *OCLC* records are confusing, but they appear to locate about a half dozen copies, only a single copy in the U.S. at Harvard. Inscribed copies are rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

COLORADO RIVER EXPEDITION - MAPS & VIEWS) Ives, Joseph C.,
Government Printing Office, 1861. v. Egloffstein, F.W. and Heinrich Möllhausen (illus). Washington, D.C. Government Printing Office. 1861. Senate Edition. Decorative cloth-covered boards, 11 1/4 x 9 inches, 7 color lithographic plates of Native American Indians, 12 black and white engravings, 2 folding maps (No. 1 From mouth of Colorado to Head of Navigation, No. 2, From Head of Navigation to Fort Defiance), Profile (From the Big Sandy to the Colorado, north of the Needles), 8 panoramic views. Report in five parts: General Report (131 pp); Hydrographic Report (14 pp); Geological Report (154 pp.); Botany (30 pp); Zoology (6 pp); Appendices. Triangular water stain on plates running from the free edge to page bottom; 5 1/2 inches along the diagonal. The volume is basically disbound with the front cover and first two dozen pages detached from rest of text block. Discoloration and tears to several of these pages; one very short tear to each map. Front cover and spine badly abraded. A pair of tinted geological maps called for not present in Part III. Sold with all faults. The damp stain to the plates is a conundrum, as the text pages adjacent appear virtually undamaged. It is almost as if the plates were damaged prior to binding--admittedly an unlikely scenario. Equally strange, the eight scenic panoramas and the frontispiece maps, the work of F. W. v. Egloffstein, are undamaged. (Additional artwork by Heinrich Möllhausen.) There are seven color lithographic plates of indigenous Native Americans: the Cocopa, Yuma, Moqui, Navajo, etc. The volume is physically in poor condition, gi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lincoln, Abraham
1861. Rare chromolithographic portrait of Abraham Lincoln in the style of E.C. Middleton. In near fine condition. Framed. The entire piece measures 22 inches by 19 inches. Abraham Lincoln served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. He led the United States through its Civil War, and in doing so preserved the Union of the United States of America, abolished slavery, and strengthened the federal government. Lincoln began constructing his cabinet on election night and sought to create a cabinet that would unite the Republican party. His eventual cabinet would include his primary rivals for the Republican nomination and although his appointees held differing views on economic issues all were opposed to the expansion of slavery into the territories of the United States. The most senior cabinet post of Secretary of State was appointed to William Seward who had recently failed to win the 1860 Republican presidential nomination and Lincoln's choice for Secretary of the Treasury was Ohio Senator Salmon P. Chase, Seward's primary political rival and the leader of a radical faction of the Republican party that sought the immediate abolition of slavery.

GREENWOOD, C. & J.] FIGG, William
Lewes: William Edwin Baxter, 1861. Map dimensions 128 x 208 cm. A decorative large map of the county with original hand colouring in block and outline marking out the rapes, large vignette illustration of Chichester Cathedral to lower right corner of the map, tables of explanation and a reference to the hundreds to the lower edge, the whole dissected into twenty four sections and recently skilfully remounted on new linen. Chipping to a few section edges, otherwise a very good example. The map was first published in this large format by the Greenwoods in 1825. This by no means common edition was brought up to date by the local surveyor William Figg, as with Baxter, a notable family name in and around Lewes. Kingsley notes that the map was not printed at Baxter's Lewes printworks, rather by the London firm Maclure, Macdonald and Macgregor. Kingsley, 89 A. "First Lithographic Transfer"

1861. Blank book. Octavo. Quarter leather and marbled paper over boards. 170 hand-numbered pages; about 115 are written upon, the rest are mostly blank. Edgewear and rubbing, sound and near very good. The first page begins a diary on December 3rd, 1861 with the writer's arrival in Whitestown and continues into March, with relatively prosaic observations about weather, outings, and family; but with occasional interesting local observations, in one case of a fire: ".followed the crowd to the village and when we arrived there we found the Livery Stable, a Shoe Shop and the Corner Store on fire, it spread to the next building.then the Post Office.", as well as news from the War, reports of letters from soldiers, and the like: "We received the account of Fort Donaldson this afternoon which caused much excitement through the School, the Flag was run up and the cannon fired." Although these personal accounts are relatively sparse, they do provide some context and poignance for some of the essays that appear in the rest of the book. A sampling of the essays include (p. 32-35): "The Girls of the Period": We must talk about something, and so must she. And let me tell you confidentially the result of my observations. DO NOT TALK HISTORY OR SCIENCE. They are dull. Talk fashion and politics & woman's rights. The more extravagant the better. In fact advocate every extravagant thing you can think of and you will immediately rise in the scale of her admiration."

Such a volume was much wanted, and will, I have no doubt, be extensively purchased [...]" - Der "Bradshaw's Railway Guide" fand in Dickens 1861 erschienener Erzählung "The Portrait-Painter's Story" Erwähnung. - "William James Adams, London agent for Bradshaw's Railway Companion (one of the world's first compilations of railway timetables), proposed to publisher George Bradshaw that his publication change format and be issued on a monthly basis at a lower price.

Wandermenagerien - -
Hamburg, Wörmer, 1861. Plakat mit 2 großen Holzschnitten. 143 x 64 cm. Außerordentlich seltenes und monumentales Plakat zu dem Gastspiel der Wandermenagerie des Gottlieb Christian Kreutzberg (1810 oder 1814 - 1874) in Hamburg. Der Tierschausteller Kreutzberg konnte durch den Erwerb der Tiere aus den Menagerien von Wilhelm van Aken und Anton van Aken eine ungewöhnliche Menge an wilden Tieren zeigen: Das Plakat listet u. a. auf: Einen Riesen-Elefanten, einen Zwerg-Elefanten, 6 Löwen, Königstiger, Jaguar, Panther. Leoparden, 6 Hyänen, Bären, Strauße, Pelikan, Marabus, Lämmergeier, Schlangen, Lamas und ein Zebra. Die beiden Holzschnitte, zusammen mehr als zwei Drittel des Plakates einnehmend, zeigen einen Dompteur mit dem Kopf im Maul eines Tigers, um ihn herum rastende Löwen in einer exotischen Landschaft, er selbst feuert eine Pistole ab. Darunter ist ein zweiter Dompteur zu sehen, der einen Löwen über eine mannshohe Latte springen lässt, fünf weitere Raubkatzen scheinen auf ihren Einsatz zu warten. Derweil betrachtet ein Männchen machender Bär die Szenerie! - Das oben angegebene Motto "Non plus ultra" mag bei Kreutzberg und diesem sensationellem Plakat wirklich zutreffen. Von tadelloser Gesamterhaltung! [4 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]

Ontwerp IJ-dok voor Amsterdam, 1861
1861. Ontwerp tot uitbreiding van Amsterdam langs het Noordzee-Kanaal. Gezigt van het Schellingwoude op de brug over het nieuwe Y-dok. Steendruk vervaardigd ca. 1861 door Van Harms & Co. naar een tekening van H. van Bruggen. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 14,7 x 55,5 cm. Na de val van Napoleon was de Nederlandse economie in een slechte staat. Het gebrek aan goede water- en wegverbindingen was hier mede debet aan. De toegang over zee tot Amsterdam was onbruikbaar geworden voor grote zeeschepen door dichtslibben van de doorvaart langs Pampus en het IJ. Tussen 1817-1824 werd het Groot Noordhollandsch Kanaal aangelegd, een waterweg van Amsterdam naar Den Helder. Al na een paar decennia bleek dat het te klein was voor de steeds groter wordende zeeschepen. Er wordt daarop begin gemaakt met het Noordzeekanaal. We zien op de prent de door ingenieur A. Huët geplande uitbreiding van Amsterdam in het IJ, een imposante aanplemping met een nieuwe dijk. Deze IJ-dijk zou de nieuwe zuidoever van het Noordzeekanaal moeten vormen. Bij realisering zou het IJ nog ongeveer eenderde van zijn oorspronkelijke breedte overgehouden hebben en zou een imposant IJ-dok ontstaan. Ook zou er een dijk komen van de Stadsrietlanden naar Schellingwoude waarin de Oranje Sluizen gebouwd zouden worden, een extra sluizencomplex ter hoogte van de Berebijt in de Amstel en een nieuwe spoorbaan van Sloterdijk naar de Amstel.

Féval Paul
Féval, Paul. Le Bossu ou le petit parisien. Paris, Michel Lévy, 1861. 3 tomes en 3 volumes de 300, 264 et 268 pages (hauteur des feuillets : 177mm.). Rousseurs (elles sont fortes au début des tomes et le recto de chaque faux-titre est entièrement roussi). Un mors légèrement fendu (tome 1). Une déchirure à un feuillet, avec un petit manque en marge. L'exemplaire est correct mais un peu modeste. Première édition in-12 apparemment peu courante. L'originale (très difficile à trouver) de ce roman pré-publié dans « Le Siècle » fait partie de la collection Hetzel, imprimée en Belgique, créée par l'éditeur alors en exil, pour lutter contre les contrefaçons ; un de ses arguments était de proposer des éditions garantissant la qualité du texte (relecture avant impression confiée à des personnels compétents voir Vicaire page 707). La lettre que nous joignons est très intéressante ; elle concerne cette question de la contrefaçon. Elle est datée du 6 mai 1857, et écrite de Bruxelles : « Mon cher Monsieur Féval, Le Siècle va commencer Le Bossu demain. Vous pourriez nous éviter la contrefaçon de Berlin en priant Voisvenelle [l'imprimeur du journal] de m'envoyer les épreuves de votre copie dès qu'il aura composé un volume » etc. Petites taches et salissures sur la lettre.

George Webbe Dasent
George Webbe Dasent (translator) (1861) 'The Story of Burnt Njal - or Life in Iceland at the End of the Tenth Century', UK first edition, first printing, published in two volumes by Edmonston and Douglas: Edinburgh. Inscribed by Dasent on the half-title page of the first volume: "with all good wishes from the translator. January 11th 1867". Provenance: we have examined the ink and compared Dasent's handwriting to existing letters and can confirm that this has been inscribed by the translator indeed. Condition: a very good plus set of the first translation of this Icelandic saga into the English language. There is some rubbing and shelf wear to the boards, but as seen on our images the boards are very nice with the gilding still vibrant. Many sets on the market have been rebound, but this is the original binding. Slight foxing to some plates and first pages commensurate with age. Internally clean with no inscriptions, no scribbles, no bookplates nor stamps by previous owners. Nice page block edges with only a few ageing spots. All plates, drawings and maps at the back are present. One of the maps has a short tear as shown. In summary, a very well preserved set of a seminal translation which is over 150 years old. We have never seen an inscribed set come to the market. The Burnt Njal saga was written at the peak of the Icelandic saga tradition in the 13th century and is the longest of the Icelandic Sagas. The original Icelandic author is unknown although there has been a fair amount of speculation. The saga describes events between 960 and 1020 and is based on historical even … [Click Below for Full Description]

LEWIS, Addie E.
New Ipswich, New Hampshire, 1861. Octavo. 58 leaves. Red leather binding with embossed border designs and gilt stamped illustrations with "Autographs" on the front board. Wear on the board edges; spine is rubbed and chipped with partial loss of the word "Autograph" and yellow right front end sheet has been removed, thus good only. The majority of the album dates between 1861-1864 with the most cited location being Appleton Academy in New Ipswich, New Hampshire. A Civil War-era autograph album which includes a signed CDV photograph card of E.T. Quimby. He also inscribed the third leaf. Elihu T. Quimby was the Principal of Appleton Academy until 1864 when he left to take a position at Dartmouth College. This album also includes a 1864 autograph of Lucretia P. Hale, most likely the same person who wrote *The Peterkin Papers*. There are several more autographs inside including one from noted editor and author, Amos Kidder Fiske. Some of the inscribed pages have nice drawings. One page has a circle of dried flower petals pasted down with an inscription inside the ring. A nice commonplace book from New England during the Civil War. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

CIVIL WAR] STEPHENS, Alexander H
G.&C. Merriam, 1861. Quotes at length a statement by Vice President of the Confederacy A.H. Stephens, made at the Georgia Convention of 1861: "It is well known that A.H. Stephens, now Vice-President of the Confederacy, at first set himself against the rebellion. His utterances at that time, so terribly confirmed by what has since taken place, deserve record as showing its utterly inexcuseable folly and guilt. In the Georgia Convention, of January, 1861, pending the question of secession, he said: 'Pause now while you can, and contemplate carefully and candidly these important items....millions of dollars you must expend in war with the North, with tens of thousands of your sons and brothers slain in battle--and for what? Is it for the overthrow of the American government...the best and freest government, the most equal in its rights, the most just in its decisions....Now, for you to attempt to overthrow such a government as this unassailed, is the height of madness, folly and wickedness.'" Undated, but likely extracted from an address by Edward Everett made in Boston in October,1864 (see OCLC 19791019). Rare; NYHS & MHS only in OCLC. Narrow folio broadside. Springfield, Mass: G. & C. Merriam, [1861] [or 1864]. 1st ed. Some light browning; small loss (ca 1/4") at lower left corner (away from text); Very good.

BALLANTYNE, Robert Michael.
T. Nelson & Sons. 1861. FIRST EDITION. Front., additional illus. title & five further plates; occasional light spotting. Orig. mauve embossed cloth, pictorially blocked in gilt; spine faded, boards sl. dulled. A v.g. crisp copy of a scarce title. Quayle 26a; Sadleir 110 recording a copy not in his own collection; not in Wolff. Quayle notes that 'few copies of the first edition appear to have survived, and to find one in the original cloth binding is a rare occurrence. This may well be a measure of the popularity of the tale, the book having been "read to death" in the first few years of its existence to be finally consigned to the dustbin, dog-eared and tattered'. Both Sadleir's 'copy' and a copy sold at Sotheby's in 2015 were in purple cloth; this copy appears to be a variant. After the popular publication in early 1861 of Paul du Chaillu's book Exploration in Equatorial Guinea which included passages on the hitherto little-known gorilla (or 'ferocious wild men of the forest'), the publishers T. Nelson & Sons persuaded Ballantyne to write a novel on the subject. Published in December 1861, The Gorilla Hunters incorporates the characters of Jack Martin, Ralph Rover, and Peterkin Gay who also appeared in Ballantyne's most enduring novel Coral Island, published in 1858. Born in Edinburgh in 1825, Ballantyne joined the Hudson's Bay Company at the age of 16 leaving Scotland for remote Canada and the tough world of fur trading. Following in the footsteps of his uncle who was the printer of Sir Walter Scott's novels, Ballantyne privately printed his first tale Hudson Bay, a story … [Click Below for Full Description]
