        Framley Parsonage

      London: Smith, Elder, 1861. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Millais. This is a Very Good copy (wear to board corners, one hinge expertly repaired) of Framley Parsonage in a RARE 3 Volumes in 1 format. This issue was unknown to Sadleir and we have never heard of, nor have we ever seen, another copy in over 25 years. While an integral part of Trollope's famed Barchester series of novels (being the 4th novel in that series), Framley Parsonage is an important work of Victorian fiction in its own right. Although he had had some limited (and we do mean limited) success with certain of his earlier novels, with Framley Parsonage Trollope had indeed "arrived" as a novelist. His most successful novel to date had been Dr. Thorne. Because of Dr. Thorne's success, Trollope's next novel was likely to be expectantly received by the reading public. Trollope, while working on an Irish tale called Castle Richmond, wrote to William Thackeray proposing himself for publication in the Cornhill Magazine, which was to begin publication in January, 1860 with Thackeray as editor. Thackeray wrote kindly and enthusiastically to Trollope about his proposal, and Smith, Elder (the publisher) wrote separately in late October, 1859 proposing to pay Trollope 1,000 Pounds (for Trollope an astonishing sum and much more than he had received for any of his previous works) for a three volume tale on condition that the first installment be in their hands no later than December 12th. Trollope proposed Castle Richmond, his novel then in progress, but Smith, Elder rejected it and insisted that Trollope instead provide a novel with an English setting and a clerical theme. This demand led Trollope to write Framley Parsonage, a thoroughly English novel, and the short time allotted forced him to place Framley Parsonage near Barchester and to fall back on his old friends, the Proudies and the archdeacon, the fictional world where Trollope had first developed his charm and genius. Castle Richmond, then accepted by Chapman and Hall, was published as Framley Parsonage ran in the Cornhill, the two works thus available to the public at the same time. Castle Richmond at first sold well on the strength of Dr. Thorne. However, once read and talked about, its sales flagged. (It was not one of Trollope's better efforts.) However, the reading public were talking excitedly of Framley Parsonage, anxiously awaiting each installment while praising Thackeray for having "discovered" Trollope, a great new novelist. Thackeray's procrastination kept him from writing the opening novel for the Cornhill and caused him to ask it of Trollope. Had Smith, Elder accepted Castle Richmond for serialization in the Cornhill, both Trollope and the Cornhill both likely would have suffered great damage to their nascent reputations. Instead, Thackeray's failure, coupled with Smith, Elder's insistence on an English clerical novel, sparked Trollope's true genius, helped the Cornhill to succeed as a publication, and brought Trollope to great fame. Sadleir states that Framley Parsonage is "an important novel with a reputation. This implies a more than purely Trollopian demand for its first edition and in consequence a high price level." Framley Parsonage was a huge success in serialization, and, consequently, a large first edition was published. Perhaps the success of the novel in the triple-decker format explains why so few copies were then left to be published in the 3 volumes in 1 format. Whatever the reason, the 3 volumes in 1 format of the novel is exceeding rare, unknown even to Sadleir who scoured the bookshops looking for Trollopes. A true opportunity for the Trollope collector to distinguish his or her collection.

        Panorama of the Seat of War: Bird's Eye View of Kentucky and Tennessee Showing Cairo and Part of the Southern States

      New York, 1861. No Binding. Fine. 22 x 28 inches. Chromo-lithograph, superb original color; fine condition. Very rare, beautiful view of the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, primarily showing Tennessee and Kentucky - the western seat of the Civil War. Bachmann, one of most highly skilled graphic artists of the 19th century, employed a vantage point of remarkable height in this panorama. The work presents literally hundreds of square miles of territory, making it a unique hybrid of map and view. It was intended as a more accessible visual guide than a standard map to the probable theatres of the Civil War for viewers unfamiliar with the areas being represented. This view in particular is one of Bachmann's more complex works. The artist necessarily distorts the view, which is oriented to the southeast, so it can encompass great lengths of both the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. These can be followed from Cincinnati, Ohio to Helena, Arkansas; Cairo, Illinois appears in the foreground. The rivers frame the expanses of Kentucky and Tennessee in the middle distance. The view is detailed with cities, roads, steamships and railroads all depicted complete with trains on the tracks. Reps says of Bachmann, who emigrated from Germany in the 1840's, that he "brought with him fully developed artistic, lithographic, and printing skills for his earliest prints reveal a high level of competence and complete command of the lithographic medium." In these daring works, he certainly extended the range of the medium in unprecedented fashion. Bachmann also produced some of the finest 19th century views of New York, New Orleans, Boston, and other major American cities. Interestingly, Bachmann claims the view was "Drawn from Nature." In exactly what sense this was meant is hard to tell. However, the Civil War did see the first considerable use of balloons in mapmaking. Thus, it is possible that Bachmann personally engaged in this or that knowledge of such a practice inspired these views. Bachmann's Civil War views are described by Rumsey as "very rare" (no. 2657). They were separately published as individual sheets. Reps, J. W. Views and Viewmakers of Urban America, p. 160.

        Silas Marner: The Weaver of Raveloe

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1861 In contemporary dark green half leather with red marbled boards, corners and edges a little worn and bumped. Spine has raised bands, blind tooling, gilt title, half inch crack to lower head joint. Internally, red marbled endpapers, text block edges marbled, binders stamp to verso fep, light foxing to first and last few pages, ink name to head of title page (MS Galley Carson), [4], 364 pp, printed by William Blackwood, Edinburgh. A nice copy of a classic. (Allibone 420)Evans, Marian [pseud. George Eliot], novelist, was known under several names during her life: Mary Anne Evans (at birth), Mary Ann Evans (from 1837), Marian Evans (from 1851), Marian Evans Lewes (from 1854), and Mary Ann Cross (1880). Her short novel Silas Marner, begun in November 1860, and finished in March 1861, caused much less depression and fewer delays than was usual for her in its composition. With its happy ending, its legendary plot of the miser who turns into a philanthropist and finds happiness in adopting a child, it is different from her other novels, while sharing their humour and breadth of understanding.

      1861. With Thirty-Four Illustrations from original drawings by John McLenan. Printed from the manuscript and early proof-sheets purchased from the author, for which Charles Dickens has been paid in cash, the sum of one thousand pounds sterling. Philadelphia: T. B. Peterson & Brothers, n.d. Original half calf with marbled boards and endpapers and page edges. First Illustrated American Edition -- in fact the first illustrated edition anywhere. It was actually Harper who paid Dickens (as noted on the title page, above) for advance sheets; they then ran it in Harper's Weekly. They sold the book rights to Peterson of Philadelphia, who published it in July in several of his Dickens "library" series -- one of which was this illustrated octavo edition. (The illustrations are separate plates; generally, Peterson library editions which have the illustrations integrated into the text came out a bit later.) John Gregory of New York did not publish GREAT EXPECTATIONS until September -- though his Library of Congress deposit may have preceded Harper's (who was notoriously lax in this regard).~The cloth-bound copies of this edition include ads that list the original publisher's bindings available for this illustrated octavo edition -- and four of the bindings are "half calf" (one of which is with "marbled edges"). In our opinion, this is that original publisher's binding -- as we have seen numerous Dickens works by Peterson, from different sources, bound in it. This copy is in very good-plus condition, with only very light shelf-wear; the front endpaper is cracked, but all remains tight. See Podeschi A147 and D25.

      Paris: Delarue, [ca. 1861].. Six handcolored lithographic plates after R. Torres Mendez, heightened with gum arabic. Each uniformly matted. Very good. An important and extremely rare series of beautiful South American color plates, depicting places and characters in and around Bogota, Colombia. These plates are from the Paris series of Torres Mendez plates, issued about 1861, after the originals published in Bogota in 1851-52. There were thirty-six plates in the entire series, of which six are present here. Ramon Torres Mendez received no formal artistic training but in his youth was attached to Messrs. Fox and Stokes, a Bogota print shop, where his skill as a draftsman was recognized. He specialized in capturing in his drawings the activities and recreations of the inhabitants of Bogota. The images here are captioned as follow: 1) "Traje I Modo de Viajar de los Campesinos de las Tierras Altas." Travellers bound for one of the high mountain passes ride mules, swathed in bright serapes. 2) "Indios Pescadores del Funza." Fishmongers carry strings of fish from a mountain lake. 3) "Arriero y su Mujer Sabana de Bogota." A water carrier offers a drink. 4) "Polleros de Choachi Colombia." Chicken farmers are depicted on their way to market with cages of fowls on their backs. 5) "Carboneros de Choachi Colombia."

        The Discovery of Australia by the Portuguese in 1601

      London,: J.B. Nichols and Sons, 1861.. Quarto, map, author's manuscript dedication to initial blank, some scattered foxing; a very handsome copy in contemporary full morocco, decorated in gilt and blind. A handsomely bound presentation copy of this important work on pre-Cook exploration in the Pacific, Major's much-vaunted follow-up to his early work on Terra Australis (previous item).In the supplement to his work on Terra Australis, Major published a letter from Sir Henry Ellis regarding the claims of the Portuguese, and this is in effect his reply, definitively stating his belief in their priority. This assembly of important documents, mainly translated from the Dutch and Spanish, deals with the hypothetical sightings of the Australian continent by the Portuguese in 1601. The discussion generally covers the period from the beginning of the sixteenth century to the Cook discoveries and includes reference to Drake, Gonneville, Magellan, Quiros, and Jansz on the Duyfken, as well as a discussion of an Elizabethan map by Jocodus Hondius which showed New Guinea as an island before the 1606 passage of Torres.In 1861 Major was made knight of the Tower and the Sword by Pedro V of Portugal for his claim that the Portuguese discovered Australia. This copy is inscribed by Major to Sir David Dundas, a Trustee of the British Museum, in June 1861.

        A Seaman's Narrative of his Adventures During a Captivity Among Chinese Pirates, on the Coast of Cochin-China, and afterwards during a Journey on Foot across that Country, in the Years 1857-8.

      Charles Westerton, London 1861 - xi, 292 pages. Old library blid stamp on ttitle page (Candy Library), rebound, leather spine and corners, marbled boards. During the time of the Second Opium War between Britain and China (1856-60), sailor Edward Brown (about whom little is known) was discharged from a trading vessel in Hong Kong. He was then offered the opportunity to captain a Chinese-crewed ship bound for Wai-how on the west coast, though he was warned that it was a risky enterprise because of the ongoing hostilities. Soon his ship was chased by Chinese pirates and Brown was taken captive for many months in Cochin-China (southern Vietnam). Published in 1861, this engaging account of his captivity, attempts at escape, and eventual return to his livelihood as a mate on a trading ship is told in a lively style, and gives a first-hand account of both a turbulent time in one of the world's most dangerous seas, and the different people and customs he encountered in the course of his enforced time on land.

        The Royal Mail Steam Ship "Australasian" 3100 Tons, To the British and North American Royal Mail Steam Sip Company this print is ... dedicated

      New York: Currier & Ives, 1861. Hand-coloured lithograph signature in image, "C. Parsons". Image size: 17 x 27 1/2 inches. Sheet size: 20 1/4 x 29 inches. Various expert repairs. A spectacular Currier & Ives portrait of the beautiful but unfortunate "Australasian": the Cunard Line's "first iron screw mail steamer ... [and] the worst vessel that the company ever owned". The Australasian was built in Clydebank, Scotland, in 1857, "at a time when auxiliaries [vessels with both steam and sail power available to them] were much in favour and when she was regarded as a magnificent vessel" (India House p.63). She was a 338-foot iron screw steamer, designed to carry mail for the European and Australian Royal Mail Company, with two smokestacks and three masts. "the company for which she was built did not last very long, and she was purchased by the Cunard Line [initially called the British and North American Royal Mail Steam Ship Company], in whose fleet she was the first screw mail steamer. They adapted her to their requirements ... but she was never a success. It was often said that she was the worst vessel that the company ever owned, for although a remarkable fast ship in smooth water, she rolled like a barrel when it was rough, and her vibration was excessive" (India House pp.63-4). Charles Parsons, British born, spent most of his long life in America creating superb marine prints and paintings. Much of his print work was published by the two major New York lithography firms: Currier & Ives and Endicott & Co. His ship portraits are among the finest of the era and demonstrate a love and a profound understanding of ships, their constuction and life at sea. A Descriptive Catalogue of the Marine Collection to be found at India House (New York: 1935) item number 255; Gale 5673; Parker & Bowen Mail and Passenger Steamships of the Nineteenth Century (london: 1928) pp.24-5

Piatti e risguardi marmorizzati. Il vol. di atlante contiene 68 tavole xilografiche a p. pagina con complessive 103 figure. Bellissimo esemplare. Prima edizione, completa del raro atlante iconografico. L'opera è un'estesa e rigorosa ricognizione sul cavallo considerato dal punto di vista zootecnico e veterinario. Moll (1809-1880), Cavaliere della Legion d'Onore, fu professore di agricoltura al Conservatorio di Arti e Mestieri e membro di molte società e accademie agricole. Gayot (Capua, 1808-Strasburgo, 1891), autore quasi per intero del presente volume, figlio del celebre veterinario Gayot du Fresnay, fu uno dei maestri della zootecnia ottocentesca, veterinario e Direttore dell'Amministrazione per l'allevamento degli stalloni. Fu altresì l'introduttore degli incroci fra i purosangue inglesi e altre razze equine meno pregiate. "Un des ecrivains les plus utiles de notre temps et qu'il laisse des livres qui perpétueront sa juste renommée", disse di lui, citata dal Mennessier De La Lance (che fornisce estesi cenni biografici e bibliografici sul Gayot), il Marchese Jean Baptiste Dampierre. Mennessier De La Lance, I, 538: "C'est un bon ouvrage, qui est toujours utilement consulté". Sugli autori, Mennessier De La Lance, I, 534-35 e II, 208.

Farquhar 21: "one of the most desirable books in the Colorado River field, for it is the first that deals specifically with the river itself"; Flake 4287; Goetzmann, pp.379-394; Larned 412; Howes I-92; New Howes I-94 "c"; Paher 952; Sabin 35308; Wagner-Camp 375; Wheat(947), (948); Wallace, The Great Reconnaissance, p.175: "This is the most reliable and entertaining narrative of all the official reports by topographical engineers on Western explorations." Ives, commissioned to determine the navigability of the Colorado, was the first white man to explore much of its course, and this is the first government publication on the exploration of the Colorado River. Eminently readable with fine illustrations. The 8 color plates of Native Americans are outstanding. Lacks the views of Canebrake Canon and Camp Colorado Plateau, which seem never to have been bound in, as well as the two additional maps in the Geological section, which seem more often than not not to have been included. A few of the plates have a dampstain in the corner which on occasion enters the image. Pencil signature of G. P. Sewall on the title page, likely the Cayuga, N.Y. Presbyterian minister in the 1870s.

Considered by Howes to by mildly scarce. (Howes B1033; Graff 512; Sabin 9497; Wagner/Camp 370) Edward Rice in his excellent biography of Richard Francis Burton wrote of his 1860 trip through the US and the resulting book: "..the book is a rare account by an experienced traveler who was alert to every detail, to language, to the nuances of a dynamic developing nation that showed high civilization on its eastern coast and progressive barbarism as one traveled westward. Here are emigrants, soldiers, desperadoes, wanderers, frontier women, Indian tribes, government officials, rascals and saints, the inevitable pretty girls (white and Indian alike). Social conditions, perceptions about democracy, advice to the army about dealing with the aborigines (the Indians were like a sort of Bedawin to Burton), lists of routes and way stops, the legal system and frontier justice, analyses of raw materials and alkaline waters, the sources of rivers, the weather, soil conditions - it is mid-century America in five hundred pages and appendixes and rarely dull." As an interesting side note: Burton's trip to the US formed the historical basis for John Dunning's 2004, biblio-mystery, A Bookman's Promise.Our code number = TB22866

        [Print]. Presidents of the United States.

      Sheet size: 27 x 21 (68 x 53 cm); image size: 24 1/2 x 18 3/4 (62 x 47.5 cm). First edition. Chromolithograph on wove paper. Reilly, American Political Prints: 1861-13. A large, patriotic, and symbolic print issued around the time of Abraham Lincoln's first inauguration containing a central allegorical scene is surrounded by oval portraits of the first sixteen presidents of the United States, with George Washington at the top and a beardless Abraham Lincoln at the bottom which may explain why, though now a considered one of the most beautiful prints of the images of American Presidents, it did not sell, as the new president was sporting a beard, and not clean-shaven as he was when Matthew Brady took this image on February 27, 1860, the day of his speech at Cooper Union in New York. The print "both commemorates Lincoln?s election and recognizes the challenges and opportunities facing the 16th president.. The 16 presidential portraits encircle symbols of the republic at a time when a divided nation faced secession and civil war. In the center, Columbia holds a shield and liberty cap, the latter being a symbol both of revolution and of freed slaves. A bald eagle grasps arrows and an olive branch and carries a ribbon with the motto 'E Pluribus Unum.' The Capitol dome (shown completed at a time when it was still unfinished) symbolizes the founding of the democratic republic while a steamship symbolizes development and progress. The allegorical images relate to concepts that Lincoln expressed in his first inaugural address; that seceding and breaking the Constitution, would be a step backward, not forward, and violates the very principles of the Union, a Union which is 'older than the Constitution.' By commemorating Lincoln?s election and illustrating the troubled and complex scene he faced, this chromolithograph encapsulates the spirit of Lincoln?s presidency, " Erin Mast, Curator (?My Abraham Lincoln? Exhibition at President Lincoln?s Cottage Museum, 2009). OCLC locates only two copies, a Minn. Library and the Library of Congress. A very good copy, small, faint stain on left margin, minor edge wear with a few tiny tears, colors vibrant.

        Panorama of the Seat of War: Bird's Eye View of Kentucky and Tennessee Showing Cairo and Part of the Southern States

      New York, 1861. No Binding. Fine. 22 x 28 inches. Chromo-lithograph, superb original color; fine condition. Very rare, beautiful view of the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, primarily showing Tennessee and Kentucky - the western seat of the Civil War. Bachmann, one of most highly skilled graphic artists of the 19th century, employed a vantage point of remarkable height in this panorama. The work presents literally hundreds of square miles of territory, making it a unique hybrid of map and view. It was intended as a more accessible visual guide than a standard map to the probable theatres of the Civil War for viewers unfamiliar with the areas being represented. This view in particular is one of Bachmann's more complex works. The artist necessarily distorts the view, which is oriented to the southeast, so it can encompass great lengths of both the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. These can be followed from Cincinnati, Ohio to Helena, Arkansas; Cairo, Illinois appears in the foreground. The rivers frame the expanses of Kentucky and Tennessee in the middle distance. The view is detailed with cities, roads, steamships and railroads all depicted complete with trains on the tracks. Reps says of Bachmann, who emigrated from Germany in the 1840's, that he "brought with him fully developed artistic, lithographic, and printing skills for his earliest prints reveal a high level of competence and complete command of the lithographic medium." In these daring works, he certainly extended the range of the medium in unprecedented fashion. Bachmann also produced some of the finest 19th century views of New York, New Orleans, Boston, and other major American cities. Interestingly, Bachmann claims the view was "Drawn from Nature." In exactly what sense this was meant is hard to tell. However, the Civil War did see the first considerable use of balloons in mapmaking. Thus, it is possible that Bachmann personally engaged in this or that knowledge of such a practice inspired these views. Bachmann's Civil War views are described by Rumsey as "very rare" (no. 2657). They were separately published as individual sheets.Reps, J. W. Views and Viewmakers of Urban America, p. 160.
