        SILAS MARNER

      1861. The Weaver of Raveloe. Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1861. 4 pp preliminary ads (with reviews dated January 1861) plus 16 pp terminal ads, undated. Original blind-stamped cinnamon-brown cloth. First Edition of George Eliot's only single-volume novel ("a short and simple one, but flawlessly fashioned").~SILAS MARNER is a novel of remarkable quality. Idyllic, certainly, but nowhere does it strain belief or offer coincidence as a resolution... There is not a superfluous line in the narrative and the book has charm, a quality rarely found in the work of the great Victorian novelists. [CGEL]~This was George Eliot's third novel, following ADAM BEDE and THE MILL ON THE FLOSS (published in the prior two years, also by Blackwood); after SILAS MARNER she would temporarily abandon her successful environment of rural England, and fail miserably with ROMOLA, sited in Italy.~This copy is in Carter's "binding B," with the less elaborate giltwork on the spine (a variation also present on Eliot's two prior novels); Carter theorizes that if either binding preceded the other, it would have to be "A", but acknowledges that the two may have been concurrent. This copy has the two leaves of Alexander Carlyle ads at the very beginning; in some copies, it is at the rear preceding the usual 16-page catalogue, and in some copies it is not present at all (no known priority).~This is a fine copy, with virtually no external wear at all. The only flaw that we can come up with is that the rear endpaper is cracked (but still snug). Now over 150 years old, the first edition of this classic tale does not turn up in better condition. Sadleir 819 ("B" binding); Wolff 2063 (binding not specified); Carter BV pp 110-112. Housed in a handsome slipcase with leather label, with inner chemise.

Obra importante para la historia misional en Méjico, magníficamente ilustrada con 32 estampas litográficas debidas a la mano de uno de los maestros mejicanos de ese arte. Iriarte (1831-1887) es considerado como uno de los mas grandes representantes de la edad de oro de la litografia de Méjico y su obra constituye un bello exponente de la antigua arquitectura conventual mejicana, en vísperas de la supresión, e incluso destrucción, de muchos de esos monumentos a causa de la promulgación por el presidente Juarez de la Ley de Nacionalización de los Bienes del Clero. El libro es un réquiem por los once conventos (Santo Domingo, La Encarnación, La Piedad, Azcapotzalco, Porta Coeli, San Francisco, La Concepción, Santiago Tlatelolco, Santa Clara, San Cosme y Santa Isabel) destruidos parcial o totalmente.También figuran los retratos de Fray Pedro de Gante, Sebastian de Aparicio y Antonio Margil de Jesus y el Auto General de Fe celebrado en 1649.

        President Cleveland Declares Thanksgiving

      The holiday we know today as Thanksgiving was & conceived by Sarah Josepha Hale, editor of the & prominent magazine Godey's Lady's Book, who en- & gaged in a campaign over years to get Thanksgiving & accepted as a national holiday in the United States. & She recommended this to Abraham Lincoln in 1861, & and on November 28, 1861, he signed a proclamation & saying, "I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in & every part of the United States, and also those who & are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign & lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of & November next, as a day of Thanksgiving." The next & national Thanksgiving was declared by Lincoln in & April 1862, and in 1863 he declared Thanksgivings & for both August 6 and the last Thursday in Novem- & ber. He went on to declare a similar Thanksgiving & observance in 1864, establishing a precedent that was followed by his succes- & sor, Andrew Johnson, who declared a Thanksgiving for December 7, 1865. John- & son gave government employees the day off, making the day a legal holiday. & The precedent established by Lincoln has been adhered to by every subsequent & president. & Document Signed, Washington, No- & vember 2, 1885. The President declares & "It is fitting and proper that a nation thus & favored should on one day in every year... & publicly acknowledge the goodness of God & and return thanks to Him for all His gra- & cious gifts. Therefore I, Grover Cleveland, & President of the United States of America, & do hereby designate and set apart Thurs- & day the 26th of November instant as a day & of public Thanksgiving and prayer, and do & invoke the observance of the same by all & the people of the land." The document & is countersigned by Secretary of State & Thomas Bayard. Every president's of- & ficial Thanksgiving proclamation is, of & course, in the National Archives. Along & with these official proclamations, pres- & idents have signed several additional & copies to be distributed to officials. & This is one of those copies and marks & Cleveland's first Thanksgiving procla- & mation in the White House. & In 1941, Congress enacted a law to fix & the date of Thanksgiving at the fourth & Thursday in November, and FDR & signed it. Thus did Thanksgiving be- & come an "official" national holiday.

        The City Of The Saints and Across The Rocky Mountains To California

      First Edition by Longman, Green, Longman, and Roberts, London: 1861. Very good+ in 3/4 deep red leather and maroon cloth covered boards with five raised bands on the spine with gilt text between two compartments. An octavo measuring 8 1/4" tall by 5 1/4" deep. The hinges have been repaired and there is a 1/4" by 1/4" chip from the uppermost raised band on the spine. The edge of the front joint is rubbed and worn and there is writing in ink on the front paste down. Without a dust jacket. 707 pages including an index, appendices and text. Illustrated with a frontispiece and 16 steel engravings and two fold-out maps (Although all illustrations are present some are misplaced with the page sequence shown in the table of contents). 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.

Voorhees of Indiana, Comprising His Argument Delivered at Charlestown, Va., Nov. 8, 1856 [i.e. 1859], Upon the Trial of John E. Cook for Treason and Murder: Also, An Address Delivered Before the Literary Societies of the University of Virginia, July 4, 1860. Richmond: Published by West & Johnston, 1861. 55 pp. Octavo (9" x 5-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in printed wrappers, rear wrapper lacking. Moderate rubbing to extremities, spine worn, light soiling and creases to exterior, moderate toning and occasional foxing to text (more extensive foxing to final few leaves). Early owner signatures to front wrapper, brief annotations to a few leaves. A solid copy of a scarce title. * Only edition. Voorhees was the defense lawyer of John E. Cook [1830-1859], one of the leaders of John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry. We wonder how his second address was received. Secession and fear of Lincoln's election was on the mind of many Virginians when it was delivered. Voorhees was a Federal district attorney in Indiana. He represented that state in the U.S. House of Representatives and was a U.S. Senator for 20 years. OCLC locates 4 copies in law libraries (Harvard, University of Iowa, U.S. Supreme Court, Yale).

        REPORT UPON THE COLORADO RIVER OF THE WEST, EXPLORED IN 1857 AND 1858

      Washington: Government Printing Office, 1861. First Edition. cloth. Very Good copy in original cloth. Large quarto (8-3/4" x 11-3/4") in original cloth, rebacked with the original spine and a new spine label; 131, 154, 30, 32 pages. Illustrated with 12 (of 14) views, 8 color plates, 8 folding panoramas, 3 paleontology plates, 2 large folding maps, 1 profile, and many wood engravings in this, the desirable Senate issue. 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.

        Map of the Vicinity of Philadelphia From actual surveys by D.J. Lake and S.N. Beers Assisted by F.W. Beers, L.B. Lake and D.G. Beers

      Philadelphia: J.E. Gillette & Co. publishers, 1861. Lithographed folding wall map, hand-coloured in outline, in 36 sections backed onto linen (87 4/5 x 65 3/4 inches overall), edged with pink linen ribbon, contemporary metal rings through cloth hoops sewn along upper margin of map. Contained in a recent red two-fold chemise, all within a recent red morocco-backed cloth slipcase, lettered and dated in gilt on the 'spine'. A rare and finely-detailed magnificent large scale map of Philadelphia and surrounding country, and a fascinating picture of Philadelphia after the Consolidation Act of 1854. The map incorporates a decorative title, an inset general plan of Philadelphia, with an extensive index of businesses and services, with inset details of boroughs and townships (with properties and ownerships indicated) the whole within a decorative border of scrolling fruit, vines, and leaves. Philadelphia had been until 1830 the second largest city in the Union, when it was exceeded in size by Baltimore as well as New York. The Consolidation Act, passed by the state legislature, extended the cities boundaries to include all of Philadelphia county, and in 1860, the city was again able to claim to be the Union's second city. This map was drawn up after the census of 1860, and, in addition to comprehensive street plan of the city of Philadelphia, includes all the 15 boroughs and townships incorporated in 1854 (Somerton, Haddington, Whitehall, Bustleton, Fox Chase, Germantown, Bridesburg, Frankford, Kenderton, Manayunk, Falls of Schuylkill, Hestonville, Tacony, Holmesburg and Paschallville), each with accompanying directories, some adjacent, but most integral with the plans themselves. D. J. Lake and S. N. Beers, who had trained under J. H. French, were assisted in the execution of this map by Lamson Lake and Silas and Frederick Beers. Phillips, Maps and Views of Philadelphia, 429; Phillips, America, p. 706 (variant issue); Rumsey 2903 (suggests 8 variant issues); Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers, p. 397.

"Harper's Weekly was an American political magazine published from 1857 until 1916, featuring foreign and domestic news, fiction, essays on many subjects, and humor. During its most influential period it was the forum of the political cartoonist Thomas Nast. By 1860 the Weekly's circulation had reached 200,000. Illustrations were an important part of the Weekly's content, and it developed a reputation for employing some of the most renowned illustrators, notably Winslow Homer, Granville Perkins and Livingston Hopkins. So as not to upset its wide readership in the South, Harper's took a moderate editorial position on the issue of slavery. It supported the Stephen A. Doughlas presidential campaign against Abraham Lincoln, but as the American Civil War broke out, Lincoln and the Union received full and loyal support of the publication. Arguably, some of the most important articles and illustrations came from the Weekly's reporting on the war. Besides renderings by Homer and Nast, Harper's also published illustrations by Theodore R. Davis, Henry Mosler, and the brothers Alfred Waud and William Waud."... THESE VOLUMES ARE COMPLETE AND HAVE THE ORIGINAL PRINTED ILLUSTRATIONS BY WINSLOW HOMER... Volumes 5 - 8 have been rebacked using original boards and spines or parts of spines... These are large heavy volumes weighing approx. 50 lbs, additional shipping and handling will apply.... First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall.

Esule dopo il 1849, riparò negli Stati sabaudi dove scoprì la sua vocazione di storico e di polemista politico"; da segnalare per la larghezza di ricerche archivistiche (dal 1870 B. fu sovrintendente dell’"archivio di Stato di Torino) e per aver fissato la storia ufficiale sabauda del Risorgimento è la sua Storia documentata della diplomazia europea in Italia dal 1814 al 1861 (8 voll., 1865-72). Migliore storiograficamente è la Storia della monarchia piemontese dal 1773 al 1861 (rimasta incompiuta al 1814, 4 voll. 1877-85). Fu nominato senatore nel 1881"". La rara monografia storiografica sui regnanti  piemontesi si ferma rispetto alle intenzioni al 1814, a causa della morte dell'autore. Esemplare in ottimo stato conservativo, privo di fioriture.

        OKAVANGO RIVER: A Narrative of Travel, Exploration, and Adventure

      London: Hurst and Blackett, 1861. First edition. With a steel-engraved portrait vignette title page and 16 other engraved illustrations as called for. 8vo, handsomely bound in half tan calf over boards, the spine with raised bands gilt ruled, black morocco lettering label gilt. [xxi], [iii], 364 pp. A very nice copy, with only very light mellowing to the extremities RARE FIRST EDITION OF THIS CORNERSTONE TEXT. A very scarce volume in first edition format, it was written five years after his LAKE NGAMI, and is a record of Andersson's hunting adventures though Namaqualand and Damaraland (present day Namibia). "Andersson intended to explore these countries right up to the Cunene or Nourse River, but the difficulties of the expedition, though encountered with indomitable courage, proved to be insuperable, and he had to turn back. He obtained, however, much valuable information, and his success as a hunter and collector was unique in this part of the continent. The coast-line of South-West Africa is carefully described, and there is an interesting account of the once-famed guano island, Ichaboe" (Mendelssohn I, p. 42).

        Poets' wit and humour

      New York: D. Appleton & Co., 1861. 8vo (22.8 cm, 9"). [8], 278, [1] pp.; illus. First U.S. edition: "Illustrated with => one hundred engravings from drawings by Charles Bennett and George H. Thomas." The work was edited by a friend and collaborator of Charles Dickens; from Chaucer to Swift to "Saint Anthony's Sermon to the Fishes," Wills's comic selections are delightfully entertaining, and their wood-engraved illustrations equally amusing. Binding: Publisher's deluxe black calf, covers and spine elaborately embossed and stamped in blind and gilt with central gilt-stamped vignette of a cherub dressed as a jester and playing a lyre. All edges gilt. => The embossing plaque is signed with the designer's initials: "R.D." — Robert Dudley. This is an English publisher's binding, most likely done using the English sheets with an Appleton title-page. This work is rarely found in the deluxe binding: The handsomely gilt-stamped publisher's cloth is the norm. NSTC 2W24418; Allibone 2762. For binding, see: Morris & Levin, Art of Publisher's Bookbindings, 44. Binding as above, showing minor wear to extremities and front cover vignette, original silk bookmark detached and laid in. Volume slightly shaken with text block starting to pull away from spine; this is the kind of volume that wants to do that, and the reader will want to "cradle" it in hand — that done, no worries. Front fly-leaf with early pencilled gift inscription and with a Maine druggist's small ticket. Mild to moderate foxing. => Both funny and decorative, in a publisher's binding that may fairly be called "DAZZLING.

        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. .

Original purple cloth, spine elaborately gilt, gilt titles to front cover within an elaborate gilt cartouche showing birds, branches and flowers, arabesque and geometric designs to both covers in blind, all edges gilt. 20 mounted album photographs by William Morris Grundy. Spine a little dulled, small chips from cloth at ends of spine, general light rubbing and a few marks, light s potting to earlyand late leaves, with the occasional spray within. The photographs are in excellent condition, and of the few copies that have appeared at auction in recent decades, this seems to be the nicest.

Grundy took up photography in 1855 as a hobby and made his name through his series of stereoscopic genre scenes entitled "Rural England." In 1859, upon Grundy's death, the London Stereoscopic Company bought his negatives and reused them to illustrate the present volume.

        Mitchell's New General Atlas?

      Folio, original cloth with leather spine and corners, 47 colored maps. Joints cracked, spine and edges rubbed and worn, wear on corners of back cover is significant with tears, exposing the cardboard, piece missing from spine, signature on front endpapers, preliminaries show a some modest browning, New York map with tears at lower margin, and at the lower end of center fold, some foxing, staining and soiling throughout, but maps are generally bright and clean. Of the 47 maps in this atlas, four are double page, and 22 relate to the U.S. Many of the maps have great color and detail, especially the maps of the United States, Texas, South America and Asia. Despite some soiling and a little staining, these maps are among the most attractive from the Mitchell's series. Signature on the front endpaper, dated 1861, appears to be the signature of Charles Colton. Old note to Colton from C.W. Eddins, bookseller, from a later date is laid in.

        Panorama of the Seat of War. Birds Eye View of Kentucky and Tennessee showing Cairo and part of the southern states

      - New York: John Bachmann, 1861 [but 1862]. Chromolithograph, by Bachmann. A fine copy of this bird's-eye by Bachmann, 'one of the finest American artists and lithographers specializing in bird's-eye views' (Stephenson & McKee), recalling a pivotal moment in the Civil War. 'Bachmann did six views of the Confederate States like this one . They are very rare.' (Rumsey). The clouds of smoke over Fort Donelson show that this image is intended to recall a moment in time between February 11th and the 16th, 1862, when Brigadier General Ulysses S. Grant besieged and secured the surrender of Fort Donelson. The 12,000-stong garrison's unconditional surrender was a major victory for the Union and a catastrophe for the South: Kentucky stayed in the Union, and Tennessee became vulnerable to a Northern advance along the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers. Grant, who received the nickname 'Unconditional Surrender', was also promoted to Major General, and came to be considered as an important figure in the western theater of the war. Stephenson Civil War Maps (1989) 23.5; Rumsey 2657; Reps p.160 ('No finer artist of city views worked in America than John Bachmann. Unfortunately, there is no artist about whom less is known')

        AN ELEMENTARY TREATISE ON ADVANCED-GUARD, OUT- POST, AND DETACHMENT SERVICE OF TROOPS, AND THE MANNER OF POSTING AND HANDLING THEM IN PRESENCE OF AN ENEMY

      New York: John Wiley, 1861.. 168pp., plus six folding plates with accompanying explanatory text. 12mo. Contemporary black cloth, neatly rebacked, with original spine laid down and corner tips repaired. Small address label on front pastedown. Internally clean and fresh. Very good. A presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Hon. S.R. Curtis, with compliments of Prof. Mahan." Samuel Ryan Curtis (1805-66) led a fascinating and eventful life. He graduated West Point in 1831, worked as a civil engineer, and served with distinction in the Mexican-American War. In 1856 he was elected to Congress from Iowa and served three terms (at which time he was presumably presented with this book). In 1861 he mustered into the Union army and soon was elevated to brigadier general of volunteers. Curtis led Union forces at the celebrated victory at Pea Ridge, Arkansas, and was appointed major general. He went on to command the Department of Kansas and that of the Northwest until the end of the war, after which he was appointed to negotiate treaties with the Sioux, Cheyenne, and other Plains tribes. Curtis was working on a survey of a proposed Union Pacific Railroad route when he died. This is a later edition, after the first of 1847, of Mahan's influential and popular manual. Mahan originally composed his work as a professor at the United States Military Academy during the Mexican- American War, but its popularity was assured when both Confederate and Union officers consulted it during the Civil War (it was also reprinted in Richmond and New Orleans in 1861). Presentation copies are uncommon, especially so to such a distinguished recipient, who had occasion to use the book during the Civil War. SABIN 43862. GENERALS IN BLUE, pp.107-8.

        Untitled, Mounted cavalrymen rescuing a soldier on horseback

      A wonderfully detailed chromolithograph depicting enigmatic scenes from the American West by Frederic Remington. Over this print measures 19.5x14" and is in very good condition with some light foxing, staining and creasing. Few artists of the American West can equal the breadth of experience of Frederic Sackrider Remington (1861-1909). From the Santa Fe Trail to the Oregon Trail, he came to possess firsthand knowledge as a rancher, a military scout, a hunter and trapper, and as a reporter. Few of his contemporaries were as devoted to capturing the three brief decades that saw the taming of the expansive and dangerous western frontier. Looking back at his career in 1905, Remington wrote: "I knew the wild riders and the vacant land were about to vanish forever...and the more I considered the subject, the bigger the forever loomed. Without knowing how to do it, I began to record some facts around me, and the more I looked the more the panorama unfolded." His evolving clarity of purpose and the naturally vivid subject matter inspired Remington to compulsively record details, producing thousands of illustrations in the course of his twenty-three year career. Remington's ability to capture narrative made his work ideally suited to the field of illustration.  His father, Seth, had been a journalist and Remington relished the opportunity to provide visual manifestation to a story.  This, coupled with his sense of adventure made him an exceptionally successful illustrator most notably for the celebrated journal Harper's Weekly.  The accuracy, immediacy and drama of his drawings fused his functions as artist and historian and in 1907 Theodore Roosevelt offered this blunt praise: "He has portrayed a most characteristic and yet vanishing type of American life." Remington was born in Canton, New York and related by blood to the painter George Catlin and sculptor Earl W. Bascom.   Following his graduation from Yale's new art school in 1880, Remington roamed the country west of the Mississippi for five years. His drawings began appearing regularly in Harper's Weekly in 1886, answering the popular need to know about America's wilderness, the Indian wars, wagon trains and cattle drives. He would return to the West for three months annually for many years. In 1890 Remington moved to New Rochelle, New York in order to have both living space and extensive studio facilities, although he later moved to Ridgefield, Connecticut.  In 1898 he served as a war correspendent and illustrator for the Spanish-American War, sent to provide illustrations for William Randolph Hearst. Although he soon became bored with his task, he was present to witness the assault on San Juan Hill by American forces, including those lead by Theodore Roosevelt. Frederic Remington's life was cut short after an emergency appendectomy led to peritonitis.   However, his contribution to American painting and to the illustration of the American wilderness is immeasureable.

A handsome and very useable set, well preserved and beautifully presented. SCARCE EARLY PRINTING OF THIS IMPORTANT TRANSLATION AND VERSION OF PLATO’S DIALOGUES. This edition of the Platonic Dialogues predates Jowett’s famous Oxford translation. All of the editors were well respected scholars and professors at Cambridge and Oxford and the authors of many works of philosophy, literature, etc. The text maintains a very faithful rendering and abridged only a few parts to “avoid prolix and obscure passages. The translations and versions embodied the scholarship and directions of lectures given on general, Platonic, and moral philosophy. This version, aware of many of the weaker points of the system endeavored to widen the course and raise the aims of the teachers. There are ample introductions and explanations of a number of the dialogues and of the system of philosophy. Of Plato little needs to be said. The translations contain; Dialogues of the Socratic School, The Dialogues Referring to the Trail and Death of Socrates, the Antisphist Dialogues, the Republic and the Timaeus.
