         The Uncommercial Traveller

      1861 - First edition. 8vo. Original blindstamped cloth, spine faded to beige, covers a faded red/pink. London, Chapman and Hall. During 1860 Dickens created the persona of ?the uncommercial traveller? as a means of connecting these seventeen disparate contributions to ?All the year round?, the weekly periodical he edited (and had founded). As he notes in the preface here, ?The series is, for the time, complete; but it is the uncommercial traveller's intention to take the road again before another winter sets in.? No further volume appeared. This is a near-fine copy:the front endpaper bears a neat February 1861 inscription, the rear endpaper is slightly cracked, and there are a couple of tiny nicks in the spine ends; the ornate spine gilt remains bright, the distinctive blindstamping on the (slightly faded) covers remain clear and sharp, and there is no foxing on the leaves within. Podeschi A145. In a stout, functional clothcase. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Silas Marner

      Edinburgh: William Blackwood and Sons,, 1861. The Weaver of Raveloe. Octavo. Original brown ripple-grain cloth, spine lettered in gilt, advertisements in rear leaves. Original bookseller's ticket to front pastedown, ownership signature to front free endpaper. This has been skilfully rebacked with original spine laid down. A very good copy. First edition. Published on 2 April 1861, the novel was a popular success and resulted in 8,000 copies in five separate printings in 1861. The publisher William Blackwood was initially worried about publishing another short fiction which might not be bought by libraries, and so deliberately made this single-volume copy "thicker and handsomer" than a volume of an ordinary three-volume novel. The novel contains a number of printer's errors which frustrated Eliot, and so a corrected edition was published in 1863 (Shattock, pp. 27-28).

         U.S. CIVIL WAR: STANFORD’S MAP OF THE SEAT OF WAR IN AMERICA.

      London, . 1861 - Lithograph with original hand colour and railway lines heightened in manuscript, with supplementary manuscript additions of military events added circa 1863, dissected into 48 sections and mounted upon original linen, folding into original dark green cloth slipcase bearing printed title label (Very Good, map clean and bright with resplendent original colours; slipcase with light shelfwear and restoration to upper left corner), 126 x 105 cm (49.5 x 41.5 inches). Rare – a stellar example of one of the finest general maps showcasing the grand theatre of the U.S. Civil War; very large, exquisitely designed and originally hand coloured; with several key battle sites contemporarily underlined in manuscript; produced by the firm of Edward Stanford, then the rising star in global cartographic publishing. - This very large and beautifully rendered map was published in the opening months of the U.S. Civil War (1861-5), and showcases the grand theatre of the conflict, being one of the finest works of its kind. The present example is stellar, due not only to its lovely condition, but also the heightening of all railways in red ink (being vital corridors of military movement) and its contemporary manuscript underlining of key battle sites. The map embraces much of the Eastern United States, from New York City westwards to a point beyond the Mississippi River; and from Montreal, in the north, all the way down south past Tampa, Florida; thus taking in the vast majority of the theatre of the war. Each state is bathed in its own beautiful wash colour, while the coasts are outlines in a bright aquamarine hue. The map is immensely detailed, labelling virtually every city, town and fort of significance; as well as delineating all major potential corridors of military movement, including roads, canals and railways (which on the present example are all contemporarily heightened in neat, red ink).While the map does not feature any printed details of wartime battle action, manuscript additions, in neat red and blue pen, underline the locations of major battle sites, highlights of which include the Battle of Fredericksburg, Virginia (December 1862); the Siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi (May-July 1863); and the turning point of the entire war, the Battle of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (July, 1863). There does not seem to be any details definitively dating from after the summer of 1863, suggesting that the underlining was added in the late summer/autumn of that year. While the present map, complete in four sheets, was debuted on October 1st, 1861, less than 6 months into the war, the publisher Edward Stanford would have continued selling the map throughout the conflict. The manuscript additions underlining key battle sites were likely added by Stanford’s . SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR A LONGER DESCRIPTION

         The Progress of His Royal Highness Prince Alfred Ernest Albert through the Cape Colony, British Kaffraria, the Orange Free State, and Port Natal in the Year 1860

      1861 - First edition. 16 photographs (laid down) & 9 woodcuts. 4to. Modern half morocco, slightly rubbed, a little foxed. xii, 180pp. Cape Town, Saul Solomon & Co., Rare. Produced to commemorate the Prince's Royal tour to South Africa, this lavish publication is of primary importance for being an early example of photography, and one of the earliest books to include photographs of Africa. The second son of Queen Victoria, the Prince, later Duke of Edinburgh (1866) and Duke of Saxe-Coburg Gotha (1893), was sent to sea in 1858 at the tender age of 14, after his parents realised that with his growing intelligence he would outshine his elder brother the Prince of Wales. The progress photographed by Solomon & Co. through the Cape Colony was made during this his first naval tour which took him from the Mediterranean to South African and the West Indies. The photographs are mostly of the Prince carrying out his official duties, although there are images of Cape Point, Grahamstown, the Berg River Valley and one of Moshesh. Theal, p242.

Folio(14 by 17 inches), original full elaborately embossed calf over wooden boards, beveled edges, all edges gilt. First edition of celebrated book designer Owen Jones’ splendidly illuminated psalter, dedicated to Queen Victoria, printed on 53 beautiful chromolithographic leaves and bound in Jones’ elaborately molded and embossed relievo style. Popular in the 1840s and 1850s, Relievo bindings were “made of heavily molded and embossed leather left to its natural color [and] are usually associated with the English designer Owen Jones.

         Great Expectations

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1861. First edition. Very Good. 3 volumes, octavo. Original violet wavy-grained cloth, the covers with floral decoration within linear border stamped in blind, spines lettered in gilt, yellow endpapers. Housed in a custom red quarter morocco and cloth solander box. With 32 pp. publisher's adverts at end of Vol. III dated May 1861. Spines expertly relined with original spines laid down, ends and tips refurbished, hinges skillfully repaired, some foxing and spotting to contents, withal a very good copy in bright cloth. First impression, published on 6 July 1861, one of 1,000 copies. The first edition was divided into five impressions, with distinct title pages labelling them as five editions, perhaps to imply rapid sales. The modern bibliographical authority is generally agreed to be the table given in Appendix D to the Clarendon edition, 1993, based on line-by-line collation of six 1861 copies, with additional spot checks from other copies, in which Margaret Cardwell agrees with the traditional conclusion that the same setting of type was used for all five impressions: "there is no warrant for treating the five impressions as distinct editions" (p. 491). However, she deduces that the impressions were sequential and that minor corrections and gradual deterioration of type can be shown across the five impressions. This copy has the great majority of Cardwell's points for the first impression, but with the following exceptions: Vol. II: 282.3 no ink between seemed and hardly; Vol. III: 39.5 no ink between you and feel; 193 foot middle I in III is not faint (although the same page has line 23 with the initial i in inflexible missing, Cardwell's state 1); 195.2 first inverted comma not faint; 217.3 in Cardwell's state 4/5, with very faint dot of semicolon after night; 220.16 end-of-line hyphen is not faint. Cardwell notes: "The Bodleian copy of Vol. III in 1st impression emends the following faults: 103 page-No.; 193.23; 195.2; 220.16. It also has at 192.11-12 himself very/carefully. These changes suggest a later state of Vol. III within the 1st impression." This copy has 192.11-12 himself very/carefully, but emends five faults, only two of which are as the Bodleian copy, which suggests that Cardwell's account of Vol. III does not definitively reflect all possible variants within the first impression as issued. Cardwell admits that "the comparatively small number of copies collated of each impression must be a consideration. The findings do suggest sufficient cumulative evidence towards reasonable identification of impressions, though there are some occasions [...] where there is evidence of correcting during printing". The first impression of Great Expectations is a famously rare book. Robert L. Patten, Charles Dickens and His Publishers (Clarendon 1978) states that 1,000 copies of the first impression and 750 of the second were printed and that probably most of the first and more than half of the second (1,400 copies in all) were published by Mudie's Select Library where, as circulating library copies, they inevitably suffered a high rate of attrition. Smith I.14. Very Good.

         On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. Third edition, with additions and corrections. (Seventh Thousand.)

      John Murray 1861 - with 1 folding diagram, the diagram frayed and soiled in the fore and lower margins, textblock a little strained between gatherings E & F, E a little proud at the top, pp. xix, 538, [2, ads], 8vo, uncut in the original cloth by Edmonds & Remants, with their ticket, sides blind stamped, spine gilt, front inner hinge a little strained, very good indeed. An exceptionally nice copy, the binding of unusual freshness, of the third edition (Freeman's variant b no priority) of "the most important biological book ever written" (Freeman), issued in April 1861, one of 2,000 copies printed. The text was extensively altered, and a table is given of differences from the second edition, a feature that occurs in each subsequent Murray edition. The third edition is also notable for the addition of the historical sketch in which Darwin acknowledges his predecessors in the general theory of evolution, which had already appeared in shorter form in the first German edition, as well as in the fourth American printing, both in 1860.

         The Gorilla Hunters. A tale of the wilds of Africa. FIRST EDITION.

      T. Nelson & Sons. 1861 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 of 'every-day life in the wilds of North America'. It began a prolific career in which Ballantyne produced scores of adventure novels for children. Between 1856 until his death in 1894 Ballantyne produced two if not three books a year. With his global tales of derring-do and exciting stories of the fast-paced and ever-changing Victorian world, Ballantyne, Sutherland notes, 'did for the English schoolboy's geography what Henty did for history'.

         Byloe i dumy [My Past and Thoughts], vol. 1: 1812-1838. From the Chimen Abramsky collection

      London: Vol'naia Russkaia Tipografiia, 1861. Octavo (19 × 12.5 cm). Contemporary half-leather binding with gilt-tooled red leather spine label; original wrappers not preserved; XII, 413, III pp. A very good copy, with wide uncut margins in an attractive contemporary binding and with an important provenance. First part of the first edition of Alexander Herzen's most important work, the memoirs published during his exile in England. A key member of the Moscow Hegelian group of "Westernizers" around the critics and philosophers Vissarion Belinsky, Mikhail Bakunin, and Timofei Granovskii, Herzen left Russia in 1846 and lived in Berlin, Brussels, Paris (where he experienced the Revolution of 1848), Geneva and London. To help the political goals of the Russian emigration, Herzen founded the "Free Russian Press" ("Vol'naia Russkaia Tipografiia") in London in 1853, which published books and journals without preliminary censorship, and issued two famous periodicals, "The Polar Star" (Poliarnaia zvezda) and "Kolokol" ("Die Glocke"). He died in Geneva in 1870. This copy from the famous collection of Socialistica of the Marxist bibliophile and scholar Chimen Abramsky (1916-2010), who fled to London from the Soviet Union in the early 1930s and became a leading specialist in both Judaica and socialist thought. His collection, parts of which were auctioned after his death, has recently been commemorated in his son's biography, The House of Twenty Thousand Books (2014).

Contemporary rebacked quarter black morocco, black cloth boards paneled in blind, backstrip lettered and ruled in gilt, marbled endpapers.

The recitatives were added for a production at Strasbourg in April 1860, and a piano score of the opera version was published that year. The present score, published (according to Hopkinson) in 1861, has added tempo markings and shows a cut from the Choeur de sorcieres in Act V. The libretto by Barbier and Carre is based on Goethe, but focuses on the love story between Faust and Marguerite. Loewenberg, 939.
