A high spot of Western American travel.& & The Deseret News of August 29, 1860 wrote of Burton's arrival "Capt. Burton will probably remain ten or twelve days in the Territory. The captain is a traveler of distinction, generally known as the Hajee Burton, pilgrim to Mecca, explorer of Hurrur, and discoverer of the great Central African Lakes." & & According to Wagner: "The Captain started on this excursion from St. Joe on the 7th of August, 1860, and arrived at Salt Lake, August 25.

Scattered foxing and tanning. About very good. An important collection of early Confederate laws, bringing together early printings of the provisional and permanent Confederate constitutions, as well as the acts and laws of the first three sessions of the Confederate Provisional Congress, all of which convened in 1861. Within the proceedings of the first three sessions of the Provisional Congress will be found a great number of acts that established the structure of the government of the Confederate States of America, giving us an excellent understanding of how the Confederacy functioned as a governmental entity. Among the acts are those establishing the department of War, the Army and Navy, the Post Office, courts, a Justice Department, providing for an Executive Mansion, and establishing free navigation of the Mississippi River. Other acts formally bring states (such as Texas) into the Confederacy, address issues of tariffs, counterfeiting, the treatment of prisoners of war, and the powers of the President, set up an official printing office, and much more.

        Contributions to the discussions]. In Proceedings of the Fourth Session of the International Statistical Congress

      Eyre and Spottiswoode, London 1861 - [Babbage, Charles.] [Contributions to the discussions]. In Proceedings of the Fourth Session of the International Statistical Congress (London: George Edward Eyre and William Spottiswoode . . . for Her Majesty's Stationery Office, 1861): 380, 381, 383, 394. With: Letter to Dr Farr, on the origin of the International Statistical Congresses. In ibid: 505-7. Half calf, marbled boards ca. 1861, spine renewed. Whole volume. xix [3], 548pp. 294 x 242 mm. Bookplate. First edition. Babbage, a member of the International Statistical Congress's organization commission, made four contributions to the discussions held at the Congress, which took place in London in July of 1860. The first two had to do with statistical methodogy, specifically, the way of delineating statistical information on paper. Babbage proposed the adoption of "dots and broken lines" as a way of distinguishing different lines in a black-and-white printed chart when color printing was not affordable. He stated that thirty years before he had constructed a drawing pen for this purpose, which could hold a series of fifteen small wheels on which different variants of dots and broken lines were inscribed. Babbage's second suggestion consisted of arguments, illustrated with examples from Scheutz's calculating machine (which Babbage was quick to point out was "now at work in the adjacent building"), in favor of "signs" resembling the thing signified. This basically was an indirect argument for the use of his system of mechanical notation, or some similar system, in the design drawings of complex machinery. From the published comments after Babbage's remark it would appear that this argument was not understood. Babbage also drew attention to the inventions of M. Guerry, who had devised a simple arithmetical machine for tabulating statistical results done by human computers. In addition, he proposed the compilation of an English dictionary, by England, her colonies, and America, for the prevention of the formation of separate dialects. Here Babbage was attempting to regulate words that came into usage in order to standardize language and make communication more efficient. His ultimate goal was a universal language: "The existence of different languages is a great evil; it is the destruction of a certain amount of the intellect of mankind, which is thus consumed by the friction that the different languages create. . . . whatever is most likely to become the universal language I would support, because I am convinced an immense quantity of time and talent is lost by the diversity of languages" (p. 394).Babbage's letter on the origin of the international statistical congresses, and the role that he had played in their early development, was addressed to the statistician William Farr, who at the time was using the Scheutz Engine no. 3 to compile his English Life Table. Farr, a member of the Congress's executive committee, contributed a preface to this volume of the Proceedings, in which he acknowledged the "valuable contributions to the science" made by Babbage and others.This congress and its Proceedings included the contributions of numerous significant scientists active at the time, including Florence Nightingale and Alphonse Quetelet.

        The Red Kangaroo. Macropus Rufus

      [London],: no imprint but, 1861.. Handcoloured lithograph, 340 x 245 mm.; fine, framed. Joseph Wolf, a leading English naturalist, prepared a remarkable zoological work that depicted one hundred animals (actually in the Regent's Park Zoo) in their natural surroundings. A number of the animals were Australian; perhaps the most outstanding of all is this big red kangaroo.The plate is a handcoloured lithograph, and is from the preferred subscribers' issue in which the illustrations were laid down on heavy white sheets with captions printed in gold. This illustration has a wonderfully rich texture; not surprisingly, Joseph Wolf's work is described by Sitwell in Fine Bird Books as belonging in the same rank as that of Audubon and Edward Lear.

        EXPLORATIONS AND ADVENTURES IN EQUATORIAL AFRICA. With Accounts of the Manners and Customs of the People, and of the Chace of the Gorilla, Crocodile, Leopard, Elephant, Hippopotamus, and Other Animals

      Albemarle Street, London: John Murray, 1861. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good. This is the first edition of the first book to introduce the gorilla to the world. The author, Paul Belloni Du Chaillu (183? - 1903), is one of the more fascinating stories of Victorian era exploration. Du Chaillu's father was a French trader, his mother reportedly African. As a teenager in Africa, Du Chaillu met and lived with a missionary who had discovered a gorilla skull in 1847. Du Chaillu decided to pursue the then virtually unknown Gorilla, spending three years on an expedition and emerging from the African interior in 1859 with 20 stuffed gorillas. The gorilla's resemblance to humans astonished the public and scientific community and the timing corresponded fortuitously with Darwin's publication of "On the Origin of Species" later that year. Dynamic, young, and a compelling storyteller (his misrepresentation of the gorilla as "some hellish dream creature" endured for many decades) Du Chaillu initially found fame in London. But he was soon vigorously attacked, first for his amateurism and errors, then more personally for his suspected non-white ancestry. To vindicate his reputation, Du Chaillu led a second expedition to Africa, which ended disastrously, with his expedition members inadvertently spreading smallpox and Du Chaillu escaping with little more than his notes. Nonetheless, Du Chaillu was able to silence many critics and restore some of his reputation. Here is the first edition of Du Chaillu's book, which introduced the gorilla to the world beyond West Africa. This copy is bound in contemporary full leather with brown leather spine and corners over brown pebble grain leather boards with marbled page edges and endpapers. With 73 black and white illustrations, including a folding frontispiece of a gorilla - notably the first ever published illustration of the animal - and a folding map at the rear. Condition is good plus - sound but showing general wear to the corners, hinges, and spine. The hinges are tender but holding. The contents are very good indeed - clean and bright with minor spotting confined to prelims. The map and all illustrations are all present.

        NOTES ON SPAIN AND THE SPANIARDS, IN THE SUMMER OF 1859, WITH A GLANCE AT SARDINIA. By a Carolinian (J.J.P.).

      Charleston: Steam-Power Presses of Evans & Cogswell, 1861. - viii,430pp. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine with raised bands, gilt morocco label. Boards edgeworn and a bit dampstained. Early discreet library stamps (properly deaccessioned) Author's name supplied in ink on titlepage, and with two dates written in ink below the imprint. Scattered light foxing. Withal, still, a very good copy in original binding. From an edition of only 300 copies, printed "for private circulation." This is a rare, substantial, and interesting Confederate imprint, describing Pettigrew's travels in Spain and his impressions of the land and its people two years before the outbreak of the American Civil War, one of the very few travel narratives published in the Confederacy. James Johnston Pettigrew is best known for his service in the Confederate army, where he eventually reached the rank of brigadier general. Born in North Carolina in 1828, he entered the University of North Carolina at age 15, eventually studied law, and settled in Charleston, South Carolina to practice. At the outbreak of the war he was elected colonel of the 12th South Carolina and was commissioned a brigadier general in early 1862. He is most famous for his prominent part in the attack on the third day of Gettysburg (Pickett's Charge), in which he commanded one of the divisions that unsuccessfully assaulted the Union center. Having survived that charge, he was fatally wounded in a rear guard skirmish during Lee's retreat from Pennsylvania, and died on July 17, 1863. In his pre- war travels through Spain, Pettigrew was much impressed by the beauty of the country and by the sophistication of Spanish culture. On returning to America he felt the need to rectify the prevalent notion that the Spanish were ignorant, slothful, and filled with prejudice against non-Catholics. He privately published these extensive NOTES. for friends who had not had the opportunity to visit Spain. Rare on the market - we are unable to locate any copies having appeared at auction in at least the past thirty- five years. One of the most interesting books published in the Confederacy.
