        THE WORLD IN MINIATURE. A DETAILED ATLAS OF EVERY NATION AND COUNTRY BOTH ANCIENT AND MODERN, EMBRACING THE UNITED STATES, A COMPLETE SET OF TOWNSHIP MAPS, TO WHICH IS PREFIXED AN IMPORTANT TREATISE ON PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY

      New Orleans, 1861. Dbd. Moderately worn, heavier along foredge through first four leaves. Loss of about five words on titlepage, minor spotting on titlepage. Scattered foxing, some leaves loose. Good. In a half morocco box. An apparent variant issue of another 1861 Bloomfield & Steel publication of the same title, that one with only fifty-three maps and issued in duodecimo. Variants of THE WORLD IN MINIATURE... are often named after the popular geographical series by the same title which first appeared in London as early as 1804, though the name appears on various works of geographical interest as early as 1735. The present edition shows all corners of the globe, with specific maps for East Canada, West Canada, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, nearly every state in the Union and Confederacy (without Louisiana, but including California and Texas), Mexico, Central America, and most major nations in Europe. The map of the United States does not show any division between North and South. At the end is a series of historical maps showing the evolution of world cartography. Of greatest importance is a series of maps and plates at the beginning of the text which attempts to show the various weather patterns of different regions of the globe, including Mercator projections that show rainfall, wind patterns, distribution of volcanoes, and mean temperature. Particular attention is paid to hurricane patterns in the West Indies and the cause of earthquakes. A note in the editor's preface indicates all the maps were engraved using the cerographic process, a method of engraving on wax that was far cheaper than copper plate engraving, though it produced maps of inferior quality. The technique was invented in 1834 by Sidney Morse, brother of Samuel Morse. Morse jealously guarded his invention, and he created only occasional maps by cerography until 1850, when he stopped using the process almost entirely. Around 1855 the technique was revived by Jewett & Chandler of Buffalo who used it to produce a few maps, but, according to Ristow, the process went largely forgotten until 1870. These circumstances make the present atlas good evidence of this uncommon technique during its dark years, before the boom in cerography that occurred after 1870. Both Phillips and OCLC note that on the cover of their respective copies appears "Morse and Gaston's Diamond Atlas," though that cover is not present here, nor is it clear that Sidney Morse had anything to do with its production. The title "Diamond Atlas" also appears on each of the similar publications cited below, though only OCLC and Phillips cite Bloomfield & Steel as publishers. A most unusual Confederate imprint and extremely rare. OCLC locates only one copy.

      Richmond, Va, 1861. Quarto. Original printed boards, later cloth spine. Boards lightly soiled.

His whole Revolutionary career consisted of raids and guerrilla warfare against the patriots in North Carolina and occasionally in South Carolina. He was captured several times...but always escaped to resume his sensational exploits...Full of bravado and vengeance" - Clark. Produced by Thomas H. Wynne as the first number in a series called "Historical Documents Relating to the Old North State." Parrish & Willingham locate fifteen copies. An exceptionally desirable item and leading Confederate rarity.

        Report Upon the Colorado River of the West, Explored in 1857 and 1858

      Washington: Government Printing Office, 1861. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Senate issue.pp 131; 154; 30; [2]; 31, [1]; complete with all plates (many colored), two large folding topographical maps, and many illustrations in the text. This copy does not include the two additional geological maps (not included in the List of Illustrations) found in some copies. Original cloth with blind-stamped decoration and steamship design in gilt on upper board. Corners rubbed/bumped, some restoration at the spine ends, spine lettering partially rubbed away. Internals near fine, binding sound, text and plates clean. Brief pencil inscription from James Dixon, U.S. Senator from CT, on front free endpaper. The Ives Expedition was sent to explore the Colorado River and determine the extent to which it was naviagble. Ives had a steamboat custom built and shipped to the west, led his party up the Colorado to the lower end of the Grand Canyon, and then traveled across the desert to Fort Defiance in Colorado. Farquhar (21) calls this report "one of the most desireable books in the Colorado River field, for it is the first that deals specifically with the river itself. Moreover, the illustrations are remarkable...two from photographs represent perhaps the first use of the camera in Arizona, certainly on the Colorado River....Ives and his staff added immensely to knowledge of the lower canyons, especially those now occupied by the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead." Howes I-92; Sabin 35308; Wagner Camp 375; Wheat 947, 948.

        CHAMPIONSHIP PRIZE ENVELOPE. LINCOLN & DAVIS IN 5 ROUNDS [caption title]

      New York: J.H. Tingley, 1861.. Five pictorial envelopes, each measuring approximately 3 x 6 inches. Minor toning and soiling. Near fine. Patriotic envelope covers became exceedingly popular at the outset of the Civil War, not only for use but also as collectible items. Both sides promoted their causes through this medium, and printers produced a variety of patriotic envelopes, finding a sure and easy market for profit. This complete set of five shows Jefferson Davis and Abraham Lincoln in the boxing ring, surrounded by supporters. The envelopes progress from a cringing Davis imploring "Let me alone!" on the first cover, as the South's supporters dwindle away - in full retreat by the third round - and Secession is noted as being a mere "greasespot" by round four . The final envelope shows Lincoln and the Union victorious. This series must have been prepared very early in the war, because Winfield Scott is still shown as the primary Union general, and the setback of First Bull run does not intrude on optimism. A wonderful set of these collectible envelopes, showing an optimistic outset to the war.

In the view of absence of geographical studies by Japanese authors, they obtained knowledge on the world geography and other civilizations mainly from Chinese works, such as Haiguo Tuzhi (Illustrated Treatise on the Maritime Kingdoms, 1876) by Wei Yuan and Yinghuan Zhilue by Xu Jishe, which after first edition in Chinese were often subsequantly published in Japan. Contents: Volumes 1 - 3: geographical information and maps of Asia. Volumes 4 - 7: Europe. Volume 8: Africa. Volume 9 - 10: Americas. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Autograph musical quotation signed in full

      1 page (ca. 112 x 263 mm.) cut from a larger leaf. Dated Paris, July 3, [18]64. Notated in black ink on music paper with "Lard-Esnault Paris 28 Rue Feydeau" embossed at upper left margin. Five measures of the vocal line from Offenbach's La chanson de Fortunio. Notated in treble clef on one staff with a key signature of four flats and the following text underlay in French: "Si vous croyez que je vais dire qui j'ose aimer." In 6/8 time. With autograph titling. Slightly browned; trimmed, not affecting signature or notation; two minor creases; small remnant of former mount to blank verso. . La chanson de Fortunio, an opéra-comique in one act to a libretto by Ludovic Halévy and Hector Crémieux, was first performed at the Théâtre des Bouffes-Parisiens in Paris on January 5, 1861. Although the the opéra never entered the standard repertoire, its title song (from which the present quotation comes), remained extremely popular. "[Offenbach] was, with Johann Strauss, one of the two composers of outstanding significance in popular music of the 19th century and the composer of some of the most exhilaratingly gay and tuneful music ever written. His opera Les contes d?'Hoffmann has retained a place in the international repertory, but his most significant achievements lie in the field of operetta. Orphée aux enfers, La belle Hélène, La vie parisienne, La Grande-Duchesse de Gérolstein and La Périchole remain outstanding examples of the French and international operetta repertory. Moreover, it was through the success of Offenbach?'s works abroad that operetta became an established international genre, producing outstanding national exponents in Strauss, Sullivan and Lehár and evolving into the 20th-century musical." Andrew Lamb in Grove Music Online.
