        Die Gestüte und Meiereien Seiner Majestät des Königs Wilhelm von Württemberg.

      Stuttgart, Ebner & Seubert, [1861].. Large 8vo. (4), XVI, 220, 8 pp. With 7 colour plates (some folding) and numerous text illustrations. Publisher's blind- and giltstamped orange cloth.. Rare first edition of this study of the famous stud of Wilhelm, King of Württemberg. W. R. Brown states that the Royal stud was run from 1852 to 1871 by Baron Julius von Hügel, who purchased valuable stock from the Egyptian stud of Abbas Pasha, "thus raising it to the highest standard of excellence" (The Horse of the Desert, p. 161/166). Al Khamsa researchers relied upon this text as a source for the Al Khamsa Arabians II Europa Foundation Stock information. While a reprint was produced in 1973, the book has not been published in an English translation; Judith Forbis (The Classic Arabian Horse, p. 137) explains that her summary statements about von Hügel's book are based upon a private translation by author Erika Schiele. - Old ownership "Pabst" to flyleaf. Some foxing throughout, still a good copy. - Not in Huth.

        An amazing Civil War collection of thirteen large salt-print photographs of Union soldiers, housed in a period ledger with excellent examples of patriotic ephemera including song sheets, broadsides, stationery and more!

      [Philadelphia], 1861 - 1865. 10" x 11.5". "A Civil War period ledger book filled with period photographs and ephemera including patriotic song sheets, stationery, flyers, a manuscript muster roll, as well as thirteen large-format salt-print photographs, most of which depict Union soldiers early in the conflict. Based on the contents, the material was collected by a resident of Philadelphia. Most of the photographs and papers have been mounted to the album pages with some expected wear, one of the photographs has been hand-painted and another bears some uneven toning, else very good condition overall. The album itself is chipped along the boards with portions of the spine missing, and front board detached. Of particular interest in this volume are the thirteen large-format salt-print photographs, most of which measure 6"" x 8.25"" and appear to have been taken in the early part of the war. Particularly stirring is a full-length portrait of a member of the Anderson Cavalry staring directly at the camera and holding his sword. Another photograph depicts E.W.C. Greene, a correspondent for the Philadelphia Evening Transcript posing with Captain Thomas Hawksworth of the 20th Pennsylvania (""Scott's Legion."") Another compelling image is that of Major General B. F. Kelly seated, posing with his family in 1859. Also of interest is a muster roll recording members of Graham's Missouri Cavalry Company, recording the names of 67 members and their dispositions between August 20 and August 31, 1861. The album also contains some excellent examples of patriotic letterheads and envelopes, prints by Charles Magnus, patriotic song sheets, as well as cartoons cut from newspapers. Particularly compelling is a October 1861 broadside promoting a ""GRAND EXHIBITION IN AID OF THE COOPER SHOP VOLUNTEER REFRESHMENT SALOON,"" which featured ""Mammoth Stereoscopic Views of the Southern Rebellion, Each Displayed on 400 square feet of Canvass, at the Mechanic's Institute ..."" As a whole, the material presents an optimistic view of the future from early in the war, when most people in the north anticipated a rapid and easy victory. "

      [Philadelphia?]: E. Stauch, 1861. - Uncolored lithograph, 12x 15 1/2 inches. Small marginal tears repaired by tape, not affecting image; uniformly tanned. About very good. Matted. A cutting political print, criticizing British assistance to the Confederate cause in the early days of the Civil War. The importance of southern cotton to the British economy caused many to fear that England would recognize the independence of the Confederacy, or offer material support to the rebels. Issued a year before United States-British relations would become strained over the controversy surrounding the British construction of rebel war ships, this print displays the northern anxiety over any material advantage that the British might give the Confederacy. The print shows "Uncle Sam," in the guise of Abraham Lincoln in a Union uniform, grabbing "John Bull" (Great Britain) by the scruff of the neck as he tries to escape over a fence. John Bull holds a handful of cotton plants in his hand, and other plants are seen in the right side of the image. The artist has camouflaged several black faces in his renderings of cotton plants. The Englishman's lower legs are made of "Armstrong's patent" cannons, referring to a type of English-made gun used by the Confederates. Uncle Sam tells him, "John, you lost your non-interfering principle, I'll lay it on your back again." In his right hand the American holds a large stick reading: "Principle of Non-Enterference." A rooster with the head of the French leader, Napoleon III, straddles the fence (French neutrality seeming tentatively secured). A scarecrow is seen in the background bearing a sign reading: "All persons trespassing these premises, will be punished according to Law." Hanging from the arms of the scarecrow are the lifeless bodies of Confederate president Jefferson Davis, and Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard. OCLC locates only two copies, at the Library of Congress and the American Antiquarian Society. A rare and powerful print illustrating a crucial aspect of Civil War diplomacy. REILLY, AMERICAN POLITICAL PRINTS, 1861-39. WEITENKAMPF, p.132. OCLC 299946808, 191120248.

        [Op. 14]. Tarentelle. Autograph musical manuscript for piano, two hands

      [1861]. Oblong folio (325 x 255 mm). Disbound. 8 pp. on two bifolia. Notated in black ink on 10-stave music paper. First leaf extended at lower margin with a ca. 23 mm. strip of paper laid down carrying an additional system (eight measures) of music; verso of extension blank. With numerous annotations in different hands, in pencil, blue pencil, red crayon, and purple ink. Autograph caption to upper right corner of first page: "Tarentelle comp. par N. Rubinstein." Tempo to upper left corner: "Presto." Heading "Tarantella" to beginning of fifth system (m. 33). Unsigned. Literals in pencil, in all likelihood in the hand of the editor or engraver: "Tarentelle" to head of first page; "Nicolas Rubinstein, Op. 14." "Stich Wie [illegible] to left margin; "Verlag und Eigenthum von Bartholf Senff" to lower margin in pencil, barely legible. Literals in blue pencil: "herunterst..."[continuation illegible] to p. 2; in red crayon: one illegible word to first system (?"Richtmaß"). Engraver's markup for layout of plates in pencil, apparently in two layers. Notational corrections in blue pencil and red crayon. [?]Shelfmark in purple ink to upper left corner of first page: "Fol: 6286." Somewhat worn, soiled and browned; creased at folds; repairs to extension of first leaf.. The is the only known autograph of Nikolay Rubinstein's Tarentelle (or Tarantella) op. 14, his most popular work, and the only one to have been published in multiple modern editions. Unlike his older brother Anton, Nikolay Rubinstein composed relatively little music. Pazdirek, vol. xxvi, p. 662, lists about 20 works, all for piano. The annotation to the foot of page 1 identifies the manuscript as the engraver's copy for the first edition, published by Bartholf Senff in Leipzig (PN 287; [1861]). The annotation is barely legible, but obviously identical (same words, same hand) with the annotation to the foot of the first page of the autograph of Nikolay Rubinstein's Polka, op. 15, at the Morgan Library, New York (accession number: Cary 578). The paper would appear to be the same as that of the first leaf of op. 15 (the further leaves of op. 15 are different). Senff's first edition has 13 pages of music, while the engraver's markup to the present manuscript indicates a total of 19 pages. Presently, the only known editions with 19 pages are those of the four- hands arrangement. It is possible that the numbers refer to Senff's later four-hand edition; the present manuscript, however, does not contain any hint of the massive additions to the musical text (such as octave doublings) characteristic of the four-hand version. The Jurgenson edition for four hands (PN 6112, from the 1890s, accessible via IMSLP) does not include the notational corrections to the present copy but does include the eight extra measures found on the extension of the first leaf. "Russian pianist, conductor, teacher, and arts administrator, [Nikolay Rubinstein, brother of Anton Rubinstein] studied piano with Theodor Kullak and Alexandre Villoing in Moscow and theory with Siegfried Dehn in Berlin... One of the greatest pianists of the second half of the nineteenth century, he mostly performed in Moscow. He championed Russian music and premiered many works by Tchaikovsky, who dedicated his First Symphony and Second Piano Concerto... to Rubinstein; on Rubinstein's death, he composed his Piano Trio 'to the memory of a great artist.' Balakirev dedicated his Islamey to Nikolay Rubinstein [who premiered it in St. Petersburg in 1869]. Rubinstein also contributed to the emergence of a Russian school of conducting. He premiered Tchaikovsky's first four symphonies, Romeo and Juliet... and Eugene Onegin. He was one of the founders of the Moscow branch of the Russian Musical Society, whose concerts he conducted from 1860, and of the Moscow Conservatory (1866). His most famous students were Sergey Taneyev and Alexander Siloti." Muzykal'nyi entsiklopedicheskii slovar', 1990. "It is difficult to say which [of the Rubinstein brothers] was the better pianist. In every way as different as the brothers were in personal appearance-the one dark, almost to blackness; the other vary fair-so different was their playing. The playing of Nicholas [Nikolay] was more like that of Tausig, only warmer and more impulsive. Perhaps Anton Rubinstein was the more inspired player of the two, but he was unequal. Nicholas never varied; his playing both in private and in public was always the same, and he kept up the same standard of excellence." Emil von Sauer, quoted in Harold Schonberg, The Great Pianists, p. 279. Rubinstein's most notable appearance abroad was at the Exposition Universelle in Paris on 1878, where he conducted several concerts and played Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto. The only holding of Nikolay Rubinstein manuscripts within North America is that of his op. 15 at the Morgan Library cited above. His autograph manuscripts are exceedingly rare to the market.

      Various places, New Haven, but mainly Beaufort and Port Royal, S.C. 1861-1864.. Fifty-seven autograph letters, signed, most with printed transcriptions. Typical age toning and foxing, else very good condition. A wonderful Civil War archive consisting of fifty-seven letters spanning the years 1861 through 1864. Forty-nine letters of the letters are written by Halsey Bartlett, with eight letters by Bartlett's fellow soldiers or contemporaries after Bartlett's death on the battlefield. Halsey Bartlett was from Killingly, Connecticut. enlisted in the Union Army as a private on Aug. 21, 1861. On September 3, he mustered into Co. "A," 6th Connecticut Infantry, and went to training camp in New Haven. Finding himself in an army camp four days after mustering in, he wrote a letter to his mother and sister (the majority of the letters contained within are addressed to them) and describes life in camp, including the singing of hymns, the rations for the day, and the name of the regiment's commander, Col. John Chatfield, who was "in the Bull Run Battle." By mid-October, Bartlett and the men of the 6th Connecticut find themselves heading south to join Gen. Thomas W. Sherman's Port Royal Expedition in South Carolina. While aboard the Steamer Marion on Oct. 27, 1861, he wrote to his mother, echoing the sentiment found in so many early Civil War letters, that he does not believe "this war will last more than six months. Fremont has a large force under him. He is coming down the Missippi [sic] River and this Division under Gen. Sherman of 75000 is to meet him and one Great Battle is to be fought which will end the war." That "Great Battle" was never realized and on Jan. 16, 1862, he writes that his regiment has "not been in any Battle yet," but that would all change three months later, with their participation in the Siege of Fort Pulaski, "April 7, 1862…While I am writing I can hear Heavy Cannons firing from some place. It sounds up in the direction of Fort Pulaski. There is a battle somewhere." The regiment was engaged in the Battles of Secessionville and Pocotaligo before taking part in the second assault on Fort Wagner (Morris Island, South Carolina, July 18, 1863), where their commander, Col. Chatfield, was wounded and later died. Seven weeks after the failed assault, the Union Army was still laying siege to the fort. In a letter dated Sept. 6, 1863, Bartlett, writing from Hilton Head, states that he was "on Guard last night and I could hear the Guns from our Batteries on Morris Island and it seemed that they had opened every Gun for such a noise I have never heard in the shooting line…no cessation whatever from Eight o'clock last night until daylight this morning." Later that night, the Confederate garrison abandoned the fort. Eight days later he writes that "Morris Island is all ours now and hope other strongholds about Charleston will ere long will be ours." The following spring, the 6th Connecticut moved north into Virginia where they participated in the Bermuda Hundred Campaign. Writing again to his sister on May 29, 1864, Bartlett thanks He that "ruleth the whole Nation above and below that I am still alive for I have been in some very hard battles since I came here…Many who came here with us who were in the best of health are no more. Oh this cruel war when will it be over? I feel now is the time to prepare for the great change before it is too late and by all that I can do with Gods help I will try to live alright so that if we do not meet again on Earth we can meet on the other shore where all is love and sin is no more." Sadly for Private Bartlett, his war would end less than three weeks later, in the bloody Wilderness Campaign. In a letter from Sergeant Earl W. Fisher to his uncle (likely Bartlett's father), dated June 18, 1864, less than three weeks after Bartlett's last letter, Fisher relays the sad news: "It has become my very sad duty to inform that cousin Halsey was Killed yesterday while on Picket-duty in front of our Battry. He was instantly Killed by a Rebel sharp shooter while in the Rifle pits. The ball entering in the right side and passing up through the heart. He only spoke and asked the boys to carry him off quick and died…. I thought you could break the very sad news to Aunt much better than I could so I write to you the facts as they are to me." In addition to the preceding letter, there are several more letters concerning the death of Bartlett, one of which is written by the lieutenant commanding the company, Hiram L. Grant, regarding the pay that was owed to him when he died and the fate of his effects. Civil War correspondence archives from soldiers killed in battle are rare, especially an archive consisting of almost fifty letters from the fallen soldier. The letters are stored in plastic sleeves and neatly arranged chronologically in two binders, making it easy to follow Bartlett's journey through the war, and to his untimely demise on a Virginia battlefield.

        THE PSALMS OF DAVID Illuminated by Owen Jones. THE VICTORIA PSALTER [embossed on front cover]

      [London] but not given here: [Day & Son] but not given here, 1861 but not dated here. Hardcover. Good. Illuminated pages (104) by Owen Jones with much use of gold and full colours to each page. Folio (417 x 310mm) in embossed tooled leather (relievio with sunken central panels and bevelled edges in 3-dimensional foliate design and raised lettering (corners worn/spine split but held by cords & cloth inner hinges, spine leather lacking 1/2" at head & max 2" at foot) All Edges Gilt. Frontis + titlepage + [2]pp dedication to Queen Victoria ALL marvelously illuminated over whole page + 100pp of similiarly illuminated text pages usually in matching wide borders on facing pages with illuminated initials of different sizes, penwork and some musical staves with black psalm printing on a cream ground. Each set of pages differs in decoration but all make use of gold, blue in many shades and red through shades of pink. The pages are printed on thin card, each is stubbed onto a cloth hinge. Some of glue is loosening with age but all pages well attached. This is however an ex library copy, recto of each leaf stamped in top corner with small purple oval stamp. The back of titlepage has shelf numbers & accession notices, and 2 leaves are stamped on back (p50 & p100) at foot in a tiny font Wolverhampton Reference Library. One page number is misprinted XLIXX and someone has tried to erase the last X. The binding is a bit wobbly at hinges but still holds the book together. This work is considered to be Owen Jones chef d'oeuvre and the fine binding is much more complicated either than relievio leather bindings which were stamped or papier mache which were cast in moulds. From a small worn corner it seems that the covers were thick dense card with a black layer on the top surface which may have been moulded papier mache onto which the leather was then stamped giving a much greater variation of depth to the relievio design than could otherwise be achieved. It is also noticable that the spine,where no underlayer could be used is much less embossed and has with useage retained less of its pattern (referenced by R. McLean, Victorian book design p129 & D. Ball, Victorian publishers' bindings p154).

Carter, Binding Variants, pp. 111-112. Parrish, p. 15. Sadleir 819. Wolff 2063.Mary Ann Evans (1819-1880), known by her pen name George Eliot, was an English novelist, journalist, translator and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. She is the author of seven novels, including Adam Bede (1859), The Mill on the Floss (1860), Silas Marner (1861), Middlemarch (1871–72), and Daniel Deronda (1876), most of them set in provincial England and known for their realism and psychological insight.She used a male pen name, she said, to ensure her works would be taken seriously. Female authors were published under their own names during Eliot's life, but she wanted to escape the stereotype of women only writing lighthearted romances. She also wished to have her fiction judged separately from her already extensive and widely known work as an editor and critic. An additional factor in her use of a pen name may have been a desire to shield her private life from public scrutiny and to prevent scandals attending her relationship with the married George Henry Lewes, with whom she lived for over 20 years. Silas Marner: The Weaver of Raveloe is the third novel by George Eliot, published in 1861. An outwardly simple tale of a linen weaver, it is notable for its strong realism and its sophisticated treatment of a variety of issues ranging from religion to industrialisation to community.

        Holländische Flußlandschaft mit lagernder Kuhherde im Vordergrund links.

      - Aquarell, weiß gehöht, über Bleistift, auf cremefarbenem Velin. 15,5:25 cm. In den Rändern ungleich beschnitten. Die flott gemalte Landschaft stammt sicher aus einem Skizzenbuch und dürfte auf Geists Reise nach Antwerpen im Jahr 1861 entstanden sein. Eine freiere Handhabung in der Darstellung von Licht- und Luftphänomen nach französischen Vorbildern, von denen er sich nur bedingt anregen ließ, ist hier zu beobachten. Aus einer Künstlerfamilie stammend, nahm Geist zunächst Unterricht bei seinem Vater, dem Würzburger Maler A. Geist (1803-1860). 1848-1850 setzte er an der Städtischen Gewerbe-schule und 1850-1853 am Polytechnischen Zentralverein seine Ausbildung fort und beendete sie 1853 in München bei dem Landschaftsmaler F. Bamberger (1814-1873). 1854 unternahm er zum Landschaftsstudium eine Rhönreise, da er vom Würzburger Polytechnischen Verein den Auftrag erhalten hatte, Landschaftsveduten aus der Gegend anzufertigen. 1855 kehrte er nach München zurück. Es folgten Motive aus der Fränkischen Schweiz und vom Starnberger See. Starken Einfluß übte die Malerei J.W. Schirmers (1807-1863) auf ihn aus, dessen Werke er 1859 in Karlsruhe studierte. 1861 unternahm er eine Rheinreise. In dieser Zeit schloß er Freundschaft mit H. von Marées (1837-1887), den er 1861 auf dem Weg nach Köln und Antwerpen in Koblenz besuchte und mit dem er die Reise nach Köln fortsetzte. Eine schwere Erkrankung brachte 1864/1865 eine Reise nach Reichenhall. Obwohl der Aufenthalt keine wirkliche Besserung bewirkt hatte, ging er im darauffolgenden Jahr nach Rom. Dort unterhielt er gemeinsam mit F. Preller d.J. (1838-1901) ein Atelier. 1867 kehrte er nach München zurück. Geist zählt sicher zu den bedeutendsten Landschaftern Mainfrankens, wenn auch sein früher Tod im Alter von 33 Jahren als Folge einer wohl langjährigen Tuberkulose die vielversprechende Malerlaufbahn jäh beendete.

        Report Upon the Colorado River of the West, Explored in 1857 and 1858 by Lieutenant Joseph C Ives

      Washington, D.C.: Government Printing Office.. Senate Edition.. 1861.. Cloth bound volume, 11.25 x 9 inches, 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; 5.5 inches along the diagonal. Cover and first two dozen pages detached, as are the two maps and the plate entitled Profile of Route. 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. 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 likewise 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 in poor condition, given the problems cited above. However, once past the first two dozen pages, the single remaining fault is the water stain that appears on plates throughout the volume. .

      [N.p., likely Richmond. 1861]. - Broadside, 6 1/4 x 4 inches. Light edge wear and minor spotting. Very good. A scarce Confederate election ticket for the state of Virginia. The handbill announces the candidacy of Jefferson Davis for president of the Confederate States, and Alexander Stephens for his vice president. It also announces John R. Edmunds of Halifax, and A.T. Caperton of Monroe as electors for the state at large, and includes a list of sixteen additional electors for the various districts, along with the name of Roger A. Pryor for the Confederate Congress. Davis and Stephens, of course, won the election, as did Pryor, who served only three months in the first regular session of the Confederate House of Representatives before joining the 3rd Virginia Infantry as a colonel. This ticket is very likely a cast ballot, with a small validation pinhole in the center, the Congressional candidate overwritten in ink (casting a vote for William T. Joyner), and with a signature to the verso, a regular practice at the time to curb ballot stuffing, and usually indicating a cast ballot (though they are typically signed in ink).

        Great Expectations

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1861. First edition, first issue. Octavo, three volumes. Bound in full calf by Bayntun. Gilt titles and tooling to the spine, gilt turn ins, marbled endpapers. In fine condition. According to G. K. Chesterton, Dickens penned Great Expectations in "the afternoon of [his] life and fame." It was the penultimate novel Dickens completed, preceding Our Mutual Friend. It is set among the marshes of Kent and in London in the early to mid-1800s. The novel contains some of Dickens most memorable scenes, including its opening, in a graveyard, when the young orphan Pip is accosted by the escaped convict, Abel Magwitch. Great Expectations is a graphic book, full of extreme imagery, poverty, prison ships ("the hulks"), barriers and chains, and fights to the death. Upon its release, Thomas Carlyle spoke of "All that Pip's nonsense." Later, George Bernard Shaw praised the novel as "All of one piece and consistently truthfull." Dickens felt Great Expectations was his best work, calling it "a very fine idea," and was very sensitive to compliments from his friends: "Bulwer, who has been, as I think you know, extraordinarily taken by the book."

        Herrick, Harrison B Group of three daily diaries for 1861, 1863, 1865, and two others for 1866 and 1867 Together five diaries

      Various places, 1861-1867 Group of three daily diaries for 1861, 1863, 1865, and two others for 1866 and 1867. Together five diaries. Various places: 1861-1867. Each 12mo morocco wallet style bindings, four black one red. Diaries for 1861 and 1863 in pencil, others combination of pencil and ink. All bindings are worn, 1863 is more so, and a couple have some tears along edges and hinges. The 1866 diary has more significant wear,m and some cracks along the edges. Group of 10 pages are loose in 1863. Condition of writing varies, but generally fairly legible. Overall the group is in very good condition.Herrick was from Syracuse, New York and served in Company D of the 110th Regiment of the New York Volunteers. However, information from the National Park Service archive suggest he served with the 12 Regiment out of New York. He appears to have served during the siege at Port Hudson, and did garrison duty at the infamous Union prison Fort Jefferson in Florida. The first diary covers his enlistment in April 1861 to the end of that year. The diary describes training and the trip to Washington, where the regiment was reviewed by President Lincoln. It appears that in July 1861 he was discharged for medical reasons, but for some reason he re-inlisted in August 1862. The diary for 1863 covers the entire year, and includes descriptions of the siege and assault on Port Hudson. Herrick seems to have been ill during this period and stayed in camp a lot.  In February 1864, Herrick and the 110th began garrison duty at Fort Jefferson, the much reviled Union prison located on Garden Key Island in the Gulf of Mexico.  While Herrick?s descriptions often seem somewhat monotonous (the weather, his health, which ships came in, his impressions of various drills), this diary is one of very few first hand accounts inside the prison. There are some interesting entries, including a prison detail discovering coffins while digging a foundation for a new building,  an officer arrested for selling whiskey to prisoners, and a prisoner being "strung up" for stealing. Perhaps the most significant content of this diary is related to Lincoln?s assassination. In an entry on April 22nd, a ship brings news to the prison "they had three prisoners slung up for rejoicing over it" Then, in an entry dated July 24th, the naval transport, Florida, brought three of the Lincoln assassination  conspirators, Samuel Arnold, Michael O?Laughlin, and Dr. Samuel Mudd to the prison.  This prison wasn?t known for kindly treatment of prisoners, the weather usually very hot and humid, and the place was infested with bugs and misquotes. The food was what you would expect, and Samuel Arnold was reported to have said the meat was so rotten "dogs ran from it."

With the striking armorial bookplate of Sir Andrew Noble, 1st Baronet. on the front paste-down of each volume. Sir Andrew Noble, 1st Baronet KCB FRS (1831-1915) was a Scottish physicist noted for his work on ballistics and gunnery. He was secretary of the British government select committee on the replacement of smooth-bore cannon with rifled artillery and carried out research on the subject. In 1859 he became Assistant-Inspector of Artillery and in 1860 a member of the Ordnance Select Committee and of the Committee on Explosives, remaining on the committee until it was dissolved in 1880. In 1862 he invented the Electro-Mechanical Chronoscope to measure small time intervals between triggers inserted into a gun to determine the acceleration of projectiles as they travelled down the barrel, allowing him to assess the performance of different powders. (Wikipedia) Anthony Trollope (1815 – 1882) was one of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. Some of his best-loved works, collectively known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire, revolve around the imaginary county of Barsetshire. He also wrote perceptive novels on political, social, and gender issues, and on other topical matters. In 1851, Trollope was sent to England, charged with investigating and reorganizing rural mail delivery in southwestern England and southern Wales. The two-year mission took him over much of Great Britain, often on horseback. Trollope describes this time as "two of the happiest years of my life." Trollope then devised the plot of Framley Parsonage, setting it near Barchester so that he could make use of characters from the Barsetshire novels. Framley Parsonage proved enormously popular, establishing Trollope's reputation with the novel-reading public and amply justifying the high price that Smith had paid for it. The early connection to Cornhill also brought Trollope into the London circle of artists, writers, and intellectuals, not least among whom were Smith and Thackeray. (Wikipedia) First English Edition with the date of 1861 on title pages of all 3 volumes. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Cloister and the Hearth. A Tale of the Middle Ages

      London: W. Clowes for Trübner & Co, 1861. First edition. 2 ff., 360; 384; 328; 435 pp. 4 vols. 8vo. Original green cloth, spines titled in gilt. Binders ticket of Westley's, London. Bookplates of Anthony Trollope, Hugh Walpole. Professionally rebacked to the highest standard, preserving original spines, overall a very pretty copy, housed in a leather-backed slipcase. Anthony Trollope's Copy A note laid into the first volume, signed by Muriel Trollope, indicated that this copy stayed with the Trollope family until 1932. A pencilled note by Hugh Walpole on the verso of the front flyleaf, dated 1933, reveals that he purchased it from the family through the agency of Michael Sadleir. The rear endleaf bears the Quaritch collation mark. Though nowhere noted in the book, this was lot 3134 in the H. Bradley Martin sale.Set in of the latter part of the 15-century, and against a background of the Reformation, the invention of printing, and a wealth of historical characters such as Luther, Deschamps, Villon, and Erasmus (as a child), Reade weaves a rich tapestry revolving around the tragic love-story of Erasmus' parents.Charles Reade became involved in a dispute with Anthony Trollope after turning the novel Ralph the Heir into the play Shilly-Shally (1872) without Trollope's permission. This situation was somewhat unusual for Reade because he was more frequently on the other side in cases of unauthorized adaptations and pirated editions.
