Contemporary half-leather binding with gilt-tooled red leather spine label; original wrappers not preserved; XII, 413, III pp. A very good copy, with wide uncut margins in an attractive contemporary binding and with an important provenance. First part of the first edition of Alexander Herzen's most important work, the memoirs published during his exile in England.

To help the political goals of the Russian emigration, Herzen founded the "Free Russian Press" ("Vol'naia Russkaia Tipografiia") in London in 1853, which published books and journals without preliminary censorship, and issued two famous periodicals, "The Polar Star" (Poliarnaia zvezda) and "Kolokol" ("Die Glocke").

        Albumen Portrait Photograph of Medal of Honor-winner Captain William Y.W. Ripley [with Book]: Vermont Riflemen in the War For The Union, 1861 to 1865. A History of Company F, First United States Sharp Shooters

      (Rutland, Vermont), 1861. Near Fine. An original albumen print of the celebrated Union Army officer William Y.W. Ripley, together with a handsome first edition copy of his History of Company F, First United States Sharp Shooters. Ripley was wounded and later received the Medal of Honor for heroism as second in command of the 1st U.S. Sharpshooters at the Battle of Malvern Hill (July 1, 1862). Born in Middlebury, Vermont, Ripley first served as a Lieutenant in the Rutland Light Guards (1858). In May, 1861 he entered the Union Army for the Civil War as Captain and commander of the Rutland Light Guards, which was mustered in as Company K, 1st Vermont Volunteer Infantry Regiment. In the fall of 1861 Ripley joined the 1st United States Sharpshooters as Lieutenant Colonel and second in command. He fought in several battles, including the Battle of Malvern Hill, at which he was seriously wounded. His wounds proved serious enough to prevent him from returning to the field.The oval albumen photograph of Ripley was taken in 1861, when he was serving as Captain of the Rutland Light Guards. It measures about 5.25" x &.5", and has two small paper strips mounted at the top and bottom of the print: "Captain William Y.W. Ripley, Rutland Lt. Guard" and "Berdan's Sharp Shooters." Housed in an oval wood frame, matted and glazed. A bright, near fine print in a very good frame with rubbing and scattered scratches to the original silver opaque surface of the frame. (Not examined out of the frame).The first edition of Ripley's book was published in Rutland, Vermon by Tuttle & Co. Printers in 1883. Octavo. pp. [1-3] 4-204. Bound in publisher's green cloth, stamped in black and gold on the front board. With the bookplate of Vermont author and editor Marius B. Peladeau on the front pastedown. Corners are bumped, small number stamp on the verso of the title page and bottom margin of the final page, a bookplate was neatly removed from the back pastedown as evidenced by a rectangular patch of light toning and light surface tears to the pastedown, else still a handsome, near fine copy. A nice association and historically important pair of items.

        Carte statistique des égouts [et] Plan statistique (des eaux)

      1861 - 2 plans en lithographie aux Paris, Imp. lithographique de V. Janson [et] Imp. Lemercier, 1861, in-4, 2 plans en lithographie aux limites en couleurs, divisés chacun en 4 sections, elles-mêmes découpées en 15 [Égouts] et 18 feuilles [Eaux], soit : 8 sections, entoilées et repliées au format in-4 [32 x 22 cm], avec étiquettes imprimées et contrecollées sur les premiers plats ; chacun des 2 plans est placé sous chemises demi-percaline verte portant des étiquettes imprimées aux armes de la ville de paris avec cartouches comportant les titres "égouts" et "eaux" ; le tout sous étui cartonné (chemises et étui moderne), Carte et plan dressés à la demande du Conseil municipal par Mr l'ingénieur en chef Emmery, continués par ses successeurs, étendus jusqu'aux fortifications, par ordre de Mr le baron Haussmann, sénateur, préfet de la Seine. Chaque plan est partagé en 4 sections correspondant aux zones géographiques nord-est, nord-ouest, sud-ouest et sud-est. Les titres apparaissent sur la section nord-est, dans l'angle supérieur droit ; sur le plan statistique des Eaux se trouve le blason de la ville de Paris. La légende de la carte "Égouts" figure sur la carte du nord-est : y sont indiqués le tracé des égouts, l'emplacement des bouches, grilles, trappes, points de partage et égouts de première urgence projetés dans la zone suburbaine. Les indications sont en bleu pour les cours d'eau et la limite des fortifications, en rouge pour le tracé des égouts. En pied de la section sud-est est donné le nom de l'imprimeur V. Janson. La légende de la carte "Eaux" se trouve sur la section sud-ouest : elle indique le tracé des eaux du canal de l'Ourcq, de Seine, du puits de Grenelle, des sources de l'Arsenal et de Belleville, les aqueducs, les réservoirs et les limites de départements, d'arrondissements, de cantons, de communes et de lieux-dits. Sur cette même section apparait un tableau comparatif des hauteurs d'eau dans les réservoirs et dans les cuvettes de distribution. En pied de la section sud-est est donné le nom de l'imprimeur Lemercier. Importants plans statistiques mis à jour pour l'année 1861, à une période charnière dans le développement du service municipal de la ville de Paris consacré à la gestion des eaux et égouts. La publication de ces plans, due à l'initiative de l'ingénieur en chef Henri-Charles Emmery (1789-1842), débute en 1839 ; ces outils, indispensables aux ingénieurs pour synchroniser leurs activité, permettent à Emmery de procéder à une "réorganisation du travail visant à coordonner les réseaux d'égout, les conduites d'eau et le tracé des rues" (Thomine-Berrada). Après la Monarchie de Juillet, la méthode d'Emmery est maintenue, tandis que l'emprise des services techniques sur la ville se renforce. Sous le Second Empire, avec Haussmann et l'ingénieur général des ponts et chaussées Eugène Belgrand, le schéma d'organisation du réseau de distribution et d'assainissement des eaux de Paris se met véritablement en place, afin de permettre une alimentation en eau indépendante des rivières et des puits, qui étaient souvent contaminés, et de répondre à l'accroissement de la demande de la part des foyers et des industries. Les enquêtes statistiques et cartographiques initiées par Emmery demeurent essentielles dans cette réorganisation. Jolis plans, en bon état, avec indications colorées très bien préservées. Transfert, en négatif, de l'encre au revers des toiles et piqûres. Un petit dessin marginal l'encre a été fait sur la carte des égouts du sud-ouest.

      Gotha, Saxony [Germany]: Justus Perthes, . 1861 - Large Oblong 4° (25.5 x 33 cm / 10 x 13 inches): Collation Complete - [1, half title], [1, title], [1, dedication], [2pp. (author’s preface)], 16 pp. (text, half page size leaves), 46 lithographed and chromolithographed plates, some with original outline hand colour (maps, diagrams; plates 14-15 combined as a large folding map; plates 20-21 combined a folding plate), [1, publisher’s advertisement], bound in original blue marbled boards, 20th Century replacement cloth spine (Good, creasing to half-title and loss to lower-right corner with old paper filling; minor staining to title and dedication; light marginal sting to many plates throughout; small closed tears entering image but with no loss to plates 1 & 3; closed tear along fold to plate 14; plates 11 & 12 with pronounced staining; plates 32, 38, 39, 42-46 with some staining within map itself; publisher’s advertisement at end creased; binding boards worn, with marginal chipping and loss). Rare and beautifully produced – Emil von Sydow’s ‘U?ebnyj Atlas’, the special Russian Cyrillic version of his famous ‘Schul-Atlas’, the work that formed the popular basis for modern methodical cartography. - This rare and beautifully produced atlas is a special Russian Cyrillic edition of the Emil von Sydow’s Schul-Atlas, one of 19th Century’s most influential and important works of geographic educational literature. Emil von Sydow, a German military cartographer and educator, was a global pioneer in modern methodical cartography. While by no measure the inventor of the school atlas, Sydow introduced standard conventions for the representation of topographical features, thematic information and political boundaries, all with an elegant clarity of expression, which became the gold standard for educational maps worldwide. His methods were best expressed by his Schul-Atlas, which was published by the venerable firm of Justus Perthes of Gotha in 39 editions from 1847 to 1887. The atlas was the most important of its kind of its era and its style and methodology were widely copied and emulated the world over.The present U?ebnyj Atlas is a special, enlarged edition of Sydow’s Schul-Atlas, which features maps and text entirely redone in Russian Cyrillic, containing 44 plates (with 2 plates being ‘combined’ to make a total of 46 plates as numbered), such that it has additional maps beyond the collation of the standard German language edition, which have 42 plates. The U?ebnyj Atlas was issued by Sydow and the Perthes firm in an effort to access the extremely large, but hitherto difficult to penetrate, Russian market. The atlas was issued in four editions: 1858, 1861 (the present example), 1866 and 1872. While statistics do not exist, it seems that the print runs of each of the Russian editions was quite limited, and certainly compared to the mass production of the German editions of the immensely popular Schul-Atlas.

        Correspondence between Thomas F. Rowland, Colonel William Borden, and J.B. Andrews regarding the fabrication of ironwork parts needed in the construction of the ironclad, USS New Ironsides

      Greenpoint (Brooklyn), New York, 1861. Very good. This 3-page letter and endorsement measure approximately 8" x 9". It was apparently delivered by courier between Rowland's Continental Iron Works and the Providence Tool and Armory Company, which employed both Borden and Andrews, as there are no postal markings. The letter has two horizontal folds and the cover is docketed, "W. Borden Order. - Oct. 22d/61." It is in nice shape with some small splits beginning at the folds. The Brooklyn shipyard, especially Rowland's Continental Iron Works, was an especially bustling place when this order was placed. The U.S. Navy had recently learned that the Confederacy was soon to launch the CSS Virginia (better known as the Merrimac) and had contracted for the rapid construction of three ironclad prototypes with three different firms. The Maxon, Fish and Company began what was to become the USS Galena, Merrick & Sons designed what would become the USS New Ironsides, and Battery Associates led the conglomerate that would build the USS Monitor. Rowland's firm was subcontracted to build the Monitor's hull at the Geenpoint shipyard and apparently elements of the other two vessels as well. In this document, Borden urgently forwards Rowland's order to Andrews to fabricate fittings for carriages to hold eight 8" guns and ten pivot or slide carriages for Parrot guns. In Rowland's order to Borden, he includes a sketch and detailed specification of the fittings for the 8" gun carriages. The archivist at the Mariners' Museum, the official repository of the Monitor Collection believes these parts were most likely used in the construction of the New Ironsides, although that cannot be positively confirmed as no archives of company records for Merrick & Sons exist. A unique record of a critical shipbuilding project in the middle of a Civil War arms race.

        The Golden Treasury of the Best Songs and Lyrical Poems

      Macmillan & Co, Cambridge 1861 - First edition, third issue (with points: four notes on page 323, gothic half-title, and no price on the spine). [xii], 332 pp. 8vo. Inscribed by Matthew Arnold to Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve. The most famous of all English anthologies of poetry. This copy is inscribed on the half-title from England's foremost literary critic, Matthew Arnold, to his French counterpart, Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve ("souvenir affectueux," dated January 1, 1861). Tipped-in at the front is a splendid three-page letter in French from Arnold to Sainte-Beuve, sending the book ("un très modeste cadeau - parvum sed bonum"), and commenting upon it at length. Arnold names Palgrave as his friend, and praises his efforts, particularly his ability to find poems of great quality not widely known, such as an ode by Andrew Marvell. Arnold goes on to express his astonishment at the poetical abilities of the English nation, comparable, in his opinion, only to those of ancient Greece. In his conclusion Arnold speaks warmly of Sainte-Beuve's most recent books, but expresses some concern over the tone of sadness and discouragement which he found in his friend's last letter; he suggests that Sainte-Beuve have a look at his poem "Empedocles." This volume had once been owned by the Arnold critic and bibliographer Thomas Burnett Smart, before being offered for sale in 1913 by the bookseller Herbert E.

        The Golden Treasury of the Best Songs and Lyrical Poems

      Cambridge: Macmillan & Co, 1861. First edition, third issue (with points: four notes on page 323, gothic half-title, and no price on the spine). [xii], 332 pp. 8vo. Publisher's green cloth, stamped in gilt. Split at gutter at pp. 128-9, else fine, in custom green half morocco slipcase. First edition, third issue (with points: four notes on page 323, gothic half-title, and no price on the spine). [xii], 332 pp. 8vo. Inscribed by Matthew Arnold to Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve. The most famous of all English anthologies of poetry. This copy is inscribed on the half-title from England's foremost literary critic, Matthew Arnold, to his French counterpart, Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve ("souvenir affectueux," dated January 1, 1861). Tipped-in at the front is a splendid three-page letter in French from Arnold to Sainte-Beuve, sending the book ("un très modeste cadeau - parvum sed bonum"), and commenting upon it at length. Arnold names Palgrave as his friend, and praises his efforts, particularly his ability to find poems of great quality not widely known, such as an ode by Andrew Marvell. Arnold goes on to express his astonishment at the poetical abilities of the English nation, comparable, in his opinion, only to those of ancient Greece. In his conclusion Arnold speaks warmly of Sainte-Beuve's most recent books, but expresses some concern over the tone of sadness and discouragement which he found in his friend's last letter; he suggests that Sainte-Beuve have a look at his poem "Empedocles." This volume had once been owned by the Arnold critic and bibliographer Thomas Burnett Smart, before being offered for sale in 1913 by the bookseller Herbert E. Gorfin (known for his association with T. J. Wise), and then resurfacing at a Hodgson's auction in London in 1945. Provenance: Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve (with Arnold's presentation inscription); Thomas Burnett Smart (published in Athenaeum volume 112, 3 September 1898, 325); Herbert E. Gorfin; sold Hodgson's, 22 February 1945, lot 148; H. Bradley Martin (Sotheby's New York, April 30, 1990, lot 3084)

Original bookseller's ticket to front pastedown, ownership signature to front free endpaper. This has been skilfully rebacked with original spine laid down. A very good copy. First edition. Published on 2 April 1861, the novel was a popular success and resulted in 8,000 copies in five separate printings in 1861. The publisher William Blackwood was initially worried about publishing another short fiction which might not be bought by libraries, and so deliberately made this single-volume copy "thicker and handsomer" than a volume of an ordinary three-volume novel. The novel contains a number of printer's errors which frustrated Eliot, and so a corrected edition was published in 1863 (Shattock, pp. 27-28).

        U.S. CIVIL WAR: STANFORD&#146;S MAP OF THE SEAT OF WAR IN AMERICA.

      London, . 1861 - Lithograph with original hand colour and railway lines heightened in manuscript, with supplementary manuscript additions of military events added circa 1863, dissected into 48 sections and mounted upon original linen, folding into original dark green cloth slipcase bearing printed title label (Very Good, map clean and bright with resplendent original colours; slipcase with light shelfwear and restoration to upper left corner), 126 x 105 cm (49.5 x 41.5 inches). Rare &#150; a stellar example of one of the finest general maps showcasing the grand theatre of the U.S. Civil War; very large, exquisitely designed and originally hand coloured; with several key battle sites contemporarily underlined in manuscript; produced by the firm of Edward Stanford, then the rising star in global cartographic publishing. - This very large and beautifully rendered map was published in the opening months of the U.S. Civil War (1861-5), and showcases the grand theatre of the conflict, being one of the finest works of its kind. The present example is stellar, due not only to its lovely condition, but also the heightening of all railways in red ink (being vital corridors of military movement) and its contemporary manuscript underlining of key battle sites. The map embraces much of the Eastern United States, from New York City westwards to a point beyond the Mississippi River; and from Montreal, in the north, all the way down south past Tampa, Florida; thus taking in the vast majority of the theatre of the war. Each state is bathed in its own beautiful wash colour, while the coasts are outlines in a bright aquamarine hue. The map is immensely detailed, labelling virtually every city, town and fort of significance; as well as delineating all major potential corridors of military movement, including roads, canals and railways (which on the present example are all contemporarily heightened in neat, red ink).While the map does not feature any printed details of wartime battle action, manuscript additions, in neat red and blue pen, underline the locations of major battle sites, highlights of which include the Battle of Fredericksburg, Virginia (December 1862); the Siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi (May-July 1863); and the turning point of the entire war, the Battle of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (July, 1863). There does not seem to be any details definitively dating from after the summer of 1863, suggesting that the underlining was added in the late summer/autumn of that year. While the present map, complete in four sheets, was debuted on October 1st, 1861, less than 6 months into the war, the publisher Edward Stanford would have continued selling the map throughout the conflict. The manuscript additions underlining key battle sites were likely added by Stanford&#146;s . SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR A LONGER DESCRIPTION

        Great Expectations

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1861. First edition. Very Good. 3 volumes, octavo. Original violet wavy-grained cloth, the covers with floral decoration within linear border stamped in blind, spines lettered in gilt, yellow endpapers. Housed in a custom red quarter morocco and cloth solander box. With 32 pp. publisher's adverts at end of Vol. III dated May 1861. Spines expertly relined with original spines laid down, ends and tips refurbished, hinges skillfully repaired, some foxing and spotting to contents, withal a very good copy in bright cloth. First impression, published on 6 July 1861, one of 1,000 copies. The first edition was divided into five impressions, with distinct title pages labelling them as five editions, perhaps to imply rapid sales. The modern bibliographical authority is generally agreed to be the table given in Appendix D to the Clarendon edition, 1993, based on line-by-line collation of six 1861 copies, with additional spot checks from other copies, in which Margaret Cardwell agrees with the traditional conclusion that the same setting of type was used for all five impressions: "there is no warrant for treating the five impressions as distinct editions" (p. 491). However, she deduces that the impressions were sequential and that minor corrections and gradual deterioration of type can be shown across the five impressions. This copy has the great majority of Cardwell's points for the first impression, but with the following exceptions: Vol. II: 282.3 no ink between seemed and hardly; Vol. III: 39.5 no ink between you and feel; 193 foot middle I in III is not faint (although the same page has line 23 with the initial i in inflexible missing, Cardwell's state 1); 195.2 first inverted comma not faint; 217.3 in Cardwell's state 4/5, with very faint dot of semicolon after night; 220.16 end-of-line hyphen is not faint. Cardwell notes: "The Bodleian copy of Vol. III in 1st impression emends the following faults: 103 page-No.; 193.23; 195.2; 220.16. It also has at 192.11-12 himself very/carefully. These changes suggest a later state of Vol. III within the 1st impression." This copy has 192.11-12 himself very/carefully, but emends five faults, only two of which are as the Bodleian copy, which suggests that Cardwell's account of Vol. III does not definitively reflect all possible variants within the first impression as issued. Cardwell admits that "the comparatively small number of copies collated of each impression must be a consideration. The findings do suggest sufficient cumulative evidence towards reasonable identification of impressions, though there are some occasions [...] where there is evidence of correcting during printing". The first impression of Great Expectations is a famously rare book. Robert L. Patten, Charles Dickens and His Publishers (Clarendon 1978) states that 1,000 copies of the first impression and 750 of the second were printed and that probably most of the first and more than half of the second (1,400 copies in all) were published by Mudie's Select Library where, as circulating library copies, they inevitably suffered a high rate of attrition. Smith I.14. Very Good.
