Trade Broadside] [Ohio] [Civil War]
Times Print, Cincinnati, [OH], 1861. Broadside. 64 x 48 cm. Printed in various sizes and styles of type. Woodcut signed in image by "Frazer & Denis, Cin." This firm of wood engravers and designers had offices in the Gazette Building on Main Street in Cincinnati, according to an 1852 city directory [Williams' Cincinnati Guide & Business Register]. The firm specialized in producing circus posters, newspaper headings, views of buildings, machinery, stores and steamboats. [see: Jeffrey Weidman's "Artists in Ohio, 1787-1900," (Kent State Univ. Press: 2000, p. 224)]. It seems that this preponderance of goods was not enough to keep the people in Olive Green, which has disappeared from the map.

Broadside; Illinois
1861. An Unrecorded Illinois Broadside? [Broadside]. [Illinois]. Twenty-Second General Assembly. An Act to Incorporate the Town of Dekalb. [Springfield, IL, 1861]. 25" x 14" broadside, dense text in five columns. Complete as issued. Light browning, fold lines, a few chips to each edge, isolated spots to wear at centerfold touching five words, all easily inferred. A rare item. * As far as we can determine, this broadside printing of the act founding this northern Illinois town, home of Northern Illinois University, is unrecorded. This appears to be an unofficial printing. The anonymous printer ran out of space at the end of the fifth column of text. Omitting the penultimate Article 44, on filling the vacancy of the office of the constable, the printer assigned that number to the final pro-forma two-line article, "This act shall be deemed a public act... &c.," but then omitted the date, "Approved Feb. 21, 1861." No copies listed on OCLC or in the state-wide catalogue of the Illinois State Library.

Trowbridge, James Hewit
Dubuque: Upham & Gilmore, Printers, 1861. 16pp. Disbound, mild wear, Good+.Trowbridge became minister of this Church in 1856, and remained until 1862, when he moved on to Chicago. His rare Sermon is a call to arms. "The Almighty Ruler of the Universe has made this American Nation to be the Steward of trusts incalculably great and solemn; that these high and sacred trusts are not placed in imminent and deadly peril; and that fidelity to our great responsibilities demands of the men of to-day that we rescue and hand down to coming generations, unimpaired, the glorious heritage bequeathed us by our fathers, at whatever cost of treasure and of blood."The Confederacy proclaims "to the astounded world that its animus and corner-stone is Slavery." It has been established on the "denial of those grand self-evident truths, political and religious, which it has been the glory and the strength of this nation to have first made the basis of our entire governmental institutions."

Cet ouvrage, dont le premier volume (paru séparément) est aussi intitulé Histoire du Diable et sert d'introduction en CIV pages à un ensemble qui devait compter six tomes, n'a jamais été achevé par son auteur. Ce second et dernier volume publié semble fort rare si l'on en croit les dénombrements effectués dans les dépôts publics.

Just ask! 1861 Florence Nightingale Notes on Nursing Medicine Health Nurses Civil War "I attribute my success to this: --I never gave or took an excuse." ― Florence Nightingale Known as 'The Lady with the Lamp,' Florence Nightingale was the founder of modern-day nursing. While she is most remembered for pioneering aspects of nursing, she was also a prolific writer, writing 'Notes on Nursing' the cornerstone work used in nursing schools and those nursing at home. This no-nonsense book is not only a call for the establishment of training of nurses; it offers the most practical advice on the care of patients. Per 'Heirs of Hippocrates', "has been limited to signify little more than the administration of medicines and the application of poultices. It ought to signify the proper use of fresh air, light, warmth, cleanliness, quiet, and the proper selection and administration of diet." "This famous book was brought out almost immediately in the United States...The work has been translated into many languages and is surely the most famous and most influential book ever written on nursing." Heirs of Hippocrates Garrison-Morton notes: "the greatest figure in the history of nursing" (Garrison-Morton 1612).

Procter, Adelaide (editor)
London: Emily Faithfull & Co, Victoria Press for the Employment of Women, 1861. First edition. Half calf over marbled boards with red morocco label and gilt to spine. Light scuffs to spine and small bump to edge of front board. All edges marbled with marbled endpapers. Small marks to title page, largely concentrated on the margins. In all a tight, square, and clean copy of this important collected work of poetry and prose by contemporary luminaries, produced by a press specifically designed to increase women's employment and support women in the arts. In 1859, Emily Faithfull joined forces with activists Jessie Boucherett, Bessie Rayner Parkes, and Barbara Bodichon to found the Society for Promoting the Employment of Women; and within a year, she had established the Victoria Press in London with the purpose of employing women in the trade and giving tangible purpose to our idea." Faithfull and her cohort "pressed for legal reform in women's status (including suffrage), explored new areas for women's employment, and campaigned for improved educational opportunities for girls and women. Emily Faithfull was at the heart of this multi-faceted campaign and identified with all three dimensions, although she is best known for her work in women's employment" (Hunt). Indeed, the Victoria Press became her greatest legacy -- a press run by and employing women "at a time when this was a skilled trade almost wholly confined to men" (Hunt). The present volume was one of the Press's earliest publications, and it was a strategic attempt to attract Queen Victoria's attention and support wit … [Click Below for Full Description]

Frances Flora Palmer was an English artist who emigrated to the United States sometime in 1844 with her husband Edmund, a lithographer, in the hopes of establishing a lucrative printing business. When their business failed, Nathaniel Currier took over their stock, and hired Palmer to work for his firm. She was associated with Currier and Ives between 1849 and 1868, producing approximately two hundred lithographs, chiefly landscape, flowers, and genre prints. She was also technically proficient in the art of lithography. "[T]he foremost woman lithographer of her time" (Deák), she is credited with assisting Nathaniel Currier in improving lithographic technology. REFERENCE: Conningham 5715; cf. Deák 647.

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.

Du Chaillu, Paul
New York: John Murray, 1861. First edition. Illustrated with 71 plates, including folding frontispiece of Gorilla and folding map at back. xviii, 479, 28 (Ads) pp. Ads are dated May, 1861. 8vo. The most celebrated work by Paul Du Chaillu (1835-1903), the explorer whose travels in Central Africa documented the existence of the "Monstrous and ferocious ape, the gorilla." This first expedition into Central Africa, supported by the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences, commenced in 1856 and lasted close to four years and covered 8,000 miles. He amassed an amazing collection of rare birds and animals, and made several important discoveries about the rivers of the region. His "Explorations and Adventures in Equatorial Africa" (1861) was initially greeted with ridicule, but his discoveries were confirmed and he was established as an expert on the region. After another expedition in 1863, he settled in America to lecture and write about Africa. All of his books "are very readable and contain interesting, lively descriptions which indicate a keen sense of observation on the part of the author" (DAB). Original publisher's brown ribbed cloth by Edmonds & Remnants. Very good (minor snag to top spine, front inner hinge tender but holding).

Dickens, Charles
1861. Works of Charles Dickens. Household Edition. [In Two Volumes.] Illustrated from Drawings by F.O.C. Darley and John Gilbert. New York: James G. Gregory, 1861. Original dark green cloth. Very early American Edition -- the first to deposit copies at the Library of Congress -- of one of Dickens's most-loved novels (being volumes of the "Household Edition"). There has been much controversy over which is the first American edition -- this edition by Gregory, or Peterson's edition. Walter Smith's recently-published bibliography of Dickens's American editions gives the nod to Peterson's, with considerable information on this controversy. In the meantime here is the brief known history. On November 15, 1860, Harper entered a copyright for the book, and then serialized the tale in Harper's Weekly beginning on November 24 and ending on August 3, 1861 (however, there is no book edition published by Harper in 1861, as they sold the book rights to Peterson). On August 26, barely three weeks later (and about seven weeks after the English three-decker was published), James Gregory of New York entered a two volume set for copyright (having undoubtedly set the type from the Harper serialization). Peterson of Philadelphia did not enter his one-volume edition at the LofC until November 8th, almost three months later. But: Peterson's edition was actually out in the public's hand by the month of July, while Gregory's did not actually hit the streets until September. So although Gregory's was the first edition to deposit copies at the Library of Congress, Peterson's was the first "published … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dostoevsky, Fyodor
Eduard Prats, Skt Peterburg, 1861. The first edition of the first great work written by the writer after returning from the exile. For the first time the novel was published in 1861 in the journal Time under the title Humiliated and Offended. From the notes of the Unsuccessful writer, with the dedication to the brother M.M.Dostoevsky. This journal was initially edited by the author himself and his brother Michael. To fill its pages, Fyodor Dostoevsky was forced to create a large novel, which could be printed in several issues. The idea of ??the work dates back to 1857. After moving to St. Petersburg in 1860, Dostoevsky immediately began to implement his plan. In July 1861 the final part of the work was published. In the same year, the novel was published in a separate edition in St. Petersburg. During the life of the writer it was reprinted two more times, in 1865 and 1879. In several places, the author, on behalf of Ivan Petrovich, tells about the fate of his first novel Poor People, which was published in the Petersburg Collection in 1846 and was a great success. The novel was greeted by critics with restraint. Perhaps this was due to the wariness about a writer who had just returned from a long-term exile. Only the democratic journal Sovremennik generally reviewed it positively. Provenance: Eden Martin, American collector. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

An unusual and possibly unique Lincoln portrait above patriotic banners and a quotation from his first inaugural address. Complete TranscriptABRAHAM LINCOLN,SIXTEENTH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES "In your hands my dissatisfied fellow-countrymen, and not in mine, is the momentous issue of Civil War. You have no oath registered in heaven to destroy the Government, while I have the most solemn one to 'preserve, protect and defend it.' The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battle-field and patriot-grave to every living heart in this broad land, will swell the chorus of the Union when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature."Extract from the closing paragraph of Lincoln's Inaugural Message, March 4, 1861.A lithograph of this same Lincoln image retaining Kaehrle's signature was used in a jugate 1864 campaign illustration of Lincoln and Andrew Johnson published by H. H. Lloyd & Co. in New York.Gabriel Kaehrle is listed in an 1857 New York directory as an engraver, and he illustrated books which were published in New York in 1860 and 1862.Very rare and possibly unique. None in OCLC and no other examples traced.ConditionStaining to edges, shadow of former matting; professionally conserved.
