      Marseille, Imprimerie et Lythographie Jules Barile, 1861. 1 volume in-8, 204 pp., reliure moderne plein cuir brun, couvertures imprimées conservées mais défraîchies et salies, petit manque de papier angulaire sur le dernier plat, rousseurs éparses, parfois prononcées, bon état d'ensemble. L'ouvrage est enrichi d'un envoi autographe de l'auteur Armand Lucy, d'un frontispice (Ch. Cousin de Montauban), de figures in texte de 5 gravures et de 2 cartes hors texte, dont un plan dépliant de Pékin in fine. "Mon fils ayant été assez heureux pour faire la campagne de Chine, grâce à la haute bienveillance de M. le général de Montauban qui avait bien voulu l'attacher à sa personne en qualité d'interprète anglais, j'ai reçu de lui de nombreuses lettres qui ont paru intéresser ses amis. - C'est à l'adresse de ceux-ci que j'ai cru devoir réunir ces lettres en un petit volume, offrant au complet cet épisode si intéressant de ses voyages." C'est ainsi que s'ouvre ce recueil de lettres écrites de Chine par Armand Lucy, lors de l'Expédition de 1860. Ce dernier y relate les événements du célèbre "Sac de Pékin". Extrêmement rare.

Altro elenco e' posto in appendice all'operetta Post tenebras lux, scritto con il Mercantini, nel quale elenca una serie di componimenti (perlopiu' gia' editi)  che avrebbero dovuto essere compresi nella Raccolta completa delle opere, probabilmente mai pubblicata. Particolarmente interessante l'appendice manoscritta che contiene una raccolta di 5, 6 poemetti (la parte finale e' estremamente confusa e meritevole di approfondimento) , abbondantemente postillati e corretti, sicuramente in prima stesura, sotto il titolo generale: Il genio del male ossia la legge del progresso. Le ultime 15 pp. mss. sono un imponenete elenco di vocaboli, divisi in ordine alfabetico, di uso poco comune. Raccolta di grande interesse, in particolare per la presenza di questa serie di manoscritti autografi inediti di questo poeta e patriota toscano, originario di Pescia (1834 - 1888) prima mazziniano e fourierista, in seguito socialista, si reco' in Piemonte tra il 1851 - 54 a causa delle sue attivita' politiche. Qui studio' giurisprudenza ma nel 1854 fu costretto a trasferirsi in Svizzera a causa di alcuni suoi scritti. Riammesso in Piemonte insegno' al collegio di Ivrea. Nel 1875 fu nomitato diretto agli studi in Umbria.  Fu in rapporti con Mazzini e con Pisacane. Il Carducci, rispondendo in una lettera in merito all'invio di scritti del Gojorani, lo giudica positivamente. ITA

        Autograph letter signed ("F. Liszt"). N. p., 14 July [18]61.

      1861. 8vo. 2 pp. on blue wove paper bifolium. To Peter Cornelius ("Liebster Cornelius"), in German, telling him that he has just been informed that the full score of his opera, "Der Barbier von Bagdad", was not in the local theatre library as Cornelius had kept it, and asking that the score be sent to him by return, the trio being an essential part of the programme entitled "Performance of Manuscript Works of the Present Time". - Franz Liszt, Peter Cornelius's mentor and friend, was due to conduct a piece from Cornelius's controversial comic opera "Der Barbier von Bagdad" at the third concert of the Artists' Congress in Weimar on 7th August 1861. The opera was first performed at the Hoftheater in Weimar on 15th December 1858, amidst a hostile demonstration organised by the theatre director, Franz Dingelstedt, who was in conflict with Liszt and the so-called neo-German school of composition. Liszt resigned his post after the fracas and both he and Cornelius left Weimar as a result. The opera was not played again in its entirety in the composer's lifetime but, as is clear from this letter, Liszt remained loyal to his friend and secretary, and continued to champion his work. According to Grove, Cornelius was a "gifted independent composer" who "may have been the composer from the Liszt circle who, after Liszt and Wagner themselves, most successfully realised the musical ideals of the New German school, albeit in a highly personal idiom" (New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians VI, 477).

        Die Gestüte und Meiereien Seiner Majestät des Königs Wilhelm von Württemberg. Stuttgart, Ebner & Seubert, [1861].

      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.

        Les Intérêts français et européens à Santo Domingo

      E. Dentu, Paris 1861 - 31 pp. Advertisements on rear wrapper. After decades of battles between Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Spain, and France, the then free nation of the Dominican Republic was handed over to Spain in 1861 by Dominican dictator Pedro Santana, who for a few titles and privileges, annexed the country back to Spanish rule. Bonneau, in this scarce work, argues that the annexation of Dominicanie to Spain is detrimental to other nations, because it makes Spain mistress of navigation in the antilles in La République d'Haïti: "The former island of Santo Domingo, Haiti, the most beautiful in the Caribbean, is currently the scene of a sudden revolution, which would be fatal to the political balance, trade and freedom, if the governments of Europe and America do not hasten to safeguard their interests and the cause of justice. We refer to the annexation or rather the occupation of the Dominican Republic by Spain." He notes that Dominican leaders tried to shop their newly formed nation to various larger countries, with Spain being the one to accept because, "since its adventurous campaign against Moroccans, Spain thinks it will again play an important role in the world. and. She has designed a comprehensive plan of conquest and annexation [because] she wants to recover all loses of her former American colonies one by one." He ends with a dire warning: "[Spain] aspires to burn all that we love. "Soyons donc sages, soyons prudents, et conservons dans les Antilles tous nos moyens d'action, si nous ne voulons pas voir un jour l'Espagne, s'unissant contre nous avec une autre puissance maritime, nous interdire l'accès du golfe du Mexique et nous enlever tout ce que nous possédons encore dans l'archipel des Antilles." Most modern authors attribute the work to Alexandre Bonneau (1820-1890) who wrote numerous books on Hispaniola (including "Haïti ses progrès, son avenir: avec un précis historique sur ses constitutions, le texte de la constitution actuellement en vigueur, et une bibliographie d'Haïti" Paris: E. Dentu, 1862). Sabin has this work under two numbers, one with Bonneau listed as author and one with no author. And Samuel Hazard attributes it to Charolais ("Santo Domingo" New York: Harpers, 1872, p. xxiii). Rare. We could locate none at auction in at least the last fifty years.

        Richard Wagner et Tannhauser à Paris

      Dentu, Paris 1861 - ______ Format : In-12. Collation : 70 pp. Demi-percaline bleue à coins, dos orné, couvertures imprimées conservées. (Reliure de la fin du XIXe siècle.). ___. ____ Edition originale. Elle provient de la bibliothèque de Stéphane Mallarmé avec sa jolie signature sur le feuillet de garde à la suite de la couverture imprimée. On lit dans une lettre de Mallarmé de 1885 : "Je vais fort étudier le volume de Wagner, un de ces livres que j'ai dû lire, à toute heure depuis quinze ans, sans le faire, trop le nez sur mon papier." Les éditeurs de la correspondance s'interrogent dans la note qui suit : "Il est regrettable qu'on ne sache pas de quel volume il s'agit, car c'est là que Mallarmé a dû se documenter, en partie pour son 'Richard Wagner, Rêverie d'un poète français' qu'il allait publier dans 'La revue wagnérienne'. . Etait-ce le livre de R. Wagner lui-même . Ou peut-être le livre d'E. Schuré, le Drame musical. . Mallarmé avait certainement lu de près l'article de Baudelaire, 'Richard Wagner et Tanhäuser à Paris', où le problème de la musique et des lettres est posé fort nettement déjà." (Correspondance, recueillie par Henri Mondor et Lloyd James Austin, Tome II p. 289). Cet ouvrage de la bibliothèque de Mallarmé est demeuré inconnu jusqu'à aujourd'hui et n'est jamais passé en vente publique. Le seul autre ouvrage connu de Baudelaire, ayant appartenu à Mallarmé, sont les "Fleurs du mal", adjugées récemment 363 000 ? Autre provenance : ex-libris gravé du comte Justinien Nicolas Clary (1816-1896), militaire et homme politique sous le Second Empire. Deux très petits manques à la couverture. Bel exemplaire.

Old library stamp on title-page and last page of Indice. Spanish text. Armero, a member of a prominent Colombian family, traveled to China after spending a few years in Cuba and becoming interested in the notorious "coolie trade" (importing Asian men, often against their will, to labor under horrific conditions in the Americas). He traveled to China in 1855 via the United States, France and Egypt and spent the next three years in Southern China observing their customs and also dispatching several shiploads of Chinese workers to the New World. He devotes almost fifty pages to his visit to the Holy Land but has little else to say about his return trip to France. Armero remained heavily, and profitably, involved in the "coolie trade" for more than a decade after he made this trip. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [Title in Cree Syllabics=] [Kanachi kichi masinaikan, kayasi testament, mina oski testament, ketipeyichikeminow mina kipimachiyiweminos Chisas Knist=] Holy the great book

      London: printed for the British and Foreign Bible Society, 1861. 8vo, pp. [4], 855, [1]; text in Cree syllabics; publisher's calf blindstamped with a large central lozenge and decorative blindstamped borders on covers, smooth spine lettered in gilt; joints rubbed and partially cracked, front hinge loosening, top and bottom of spine chipped, back board slighly bent at the top; a good copy in a new brown cloth clamshell box. Bookplate of Edward Everett Ayer, and a duplicate from the Ayer Collection at the Newberry. Old bibliographic notes on front endpapers, including one stating "Syllabic: the Indians can learn to read it in 6 to 8 hours ... Miss[ionary]. Society in 1861 asked for 5000 copies." And another: Mrs. Mason had come over to England for her health, she has chiefly assisted her husband and just lived in 1862 to see the last verse of Malachithe New Testament having been printed before." Pilling, Algonquin, 339-40: "The New Testament portion was also issued separately ... Although the three works last [listed byPilling] have the name of Rev. William Mason on their respective title pages, denial has been made in a number of instances that they were translated by him. In a biography of the Rev. Mr. Steinhauer in the Missionary Outlook for Jan. 1881, published in Toronto, there occurs the following passage: 'When the Rev. James Evans went to the North-West in 1840, he was already meditating the possibility of reducing the Cree tongue to writing. In this he succeeded, by inventing what is known as the syllabic characters. Mr. Evans not only invented the characters, but cut the first type in which an attempt was made to print them. Soon after, the work of translating the scriptures began and it was in this work that Bro. Steinhauer rendered efficient service in conjunction with John Sinclair, a half-breed, afterwards employed as a native assistant at Oxford House... The manuscript of these translations was entrusted to the Rev. Mr. Mason, who was now a missionary of the Church of England at York Factory. He took it to England where the work of printing was undertaken by the British and Foreign Bible Society. When the work was passing through the press, Mr. Mason, with characteristic modesty but very questionable morality, had his own name printed on the title page as the translator of the work. Subsequently, after the death of James Evans, Mason claimed to have been the inventor of the syllabic characters..." Ayer, Cree, 6; Darlow & Moule 3130: "The N.T. and the O.T. were both issued separately, as well as bound together." Peel, Prairie Provinces, 227: "Although Mason's name appeared on the title page as translator, it was a cooperative effort by the missionary group at Rossville [mission]..." Pilling, Proof Sheets, 2493.

        Great Expectations

      1861. first edition. First Edition of ?Great Expectations? in the Original Cloth With an Autograph Letter Signed by the Dedicatee Tipped-in DICKENS, Charles. Great Expectations. In Three Volumes. Vol. I. [II. III.] London: Chapman and Hall, 1861.First edition in book form, mixed issue.Three octavo volumes (7 3/4 x 4 13/16 inches; 197 x 123 mm.). [i-iv], [1], 2-344; [ii], [1] 2-351 [1, imprint]; [ii], [1], 2-344, [1]-32, catalogue dated August 1861, pp. With all of the internal flaws for the first issue of volume I as called for by Smith, many of the internal flaws in volume II, and four of his first issue points in volume III. All three volumes with the first issue title-pages. Small stain on E1 (page 49) of volume II just affecting three letters.Publisher's moderate violet wavy-grain cloth, covers with blind-stamped borders enclosing a decorative rectangular panel stamped in blind, spines lettered in gilt, yellow-coated end-papers. Some light rubbing to extremities, minimal fading to spines, hinges professionally and almost invisibly restored, but the original cloth entirely untouched. Volume I very slightly skewed. Feint trace of Mudie?s Select Library ticket removal from top boards. Overall an exceptionally clean, fresh and bright copy of a title that is notoriously rare in unsophisticated presentable condition. With the armorial bookplate of Eugene Field on front paste-down of each volume. The front paste-down of volume I additionally has a clipped signature "Charles Dickens", clipped signature "Eugene Field/Chicago, June 26, 1893." and the rectangular blue leather bookplate of collector Dr. George Staehle (1925-2008). Each volume chemised in a half olive green morocco over green cloth board slipcase, spines with five raised bands, elaborately tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments.This copy belonged to author Eugene Field, and each volume has his bookplate on the front pastedown. Additionally, there is an ink note on the rear free endpaper of volume I by his son, Eugene Field, II: ?This is the first issue set of ?Great Expectations? coming from the library of my father, Eugene Field. Nov. 1 - 1931 Eugene Field II? (This statement by Field, II no longer reflects the current bibiographical scholarship on this title).Tipped-in to volume I is a two-page autograph letter signed by The Reverend Chauncy [Chauncey] Hare Townshend (1798-1868), clergyman and poet, to whom Dickens dedicated this book. The letter is dated ?Keswick. 16th April. 1932.? and is addressed to a Mr. George Robins [?], concerning the sale of 'Baynard', Chauncy Hare Townshend's country house.Townshend and Dickens were close friends and Townshend even appointed Dickens his literary executor upon his death in 1868. In the 1830s Townshend studied mesmerism, and was the chief British exponent of the art after Dr. John Elliotson and published two books and some articles and letters on the subject. Elliotson introduced Townshend to Charles Dickens, who also had an interest in mesmerism, and the two became lifelong friends. Townshend's volume of poetry The Three Gates (1859) was dedicated to Dickens, who in turn dedicated Great Expectations (1861) to Townshend; Dickens gave Townshend the original manuscript of the novel, and also his crystal ball.Though the first edition of Great Expectations in book form went through five rapid issues, all copies of the first edition are excessively rare, as very few copies were printed at all, due to the saturation-level readership of the novel during its serialization in All the Year Round. Additionally, the circulating libraries immediately seized a large portion of the copies that were printed. One of only two Dickens novels never issued in monthly parts?the typical method since Pickwick ? Great Expectations is also one of only two of his novels whose first editions weren?t illustrated (in both cases, Hard Times is the other). Great Expectations first appeared in England in the pages of Dickens?s popular magazine, All the Year Round, beginning on December 1, 1860 (though two American magazines, Harper?s Weekly and the American All the Year Round began serializing it slightly earlier, technically jeopardizing Dickens?s British copyright). ?Great Expectations originally appeared in thirty-six weekly numbers of All the Year Round from 1 December 1860 through 3 August 1861. It appeared in the three-volume book form on July 6, 1861? This first edition was followed by four other so-called editions (actually issues) on August 5, August 17, September 21, and October 30. These first five were probably printed at a single impression and published with altered title-pages to imply and encourage a rapid sale. (The words announcing the ?edition? are printed between the volume number and the imprint.) In all five issues, the same misprints persist. The genuine second edition was the one-volume ?Library Edition? with Chapman and Hall published in 1862? (Smith, pp. 103-104, note 3).?The rarity of the first issue of Great Expectations has been attributed to the probable small binding-up of copies with the first titlepage, coupled with the fact (according to C.P. Johnson, Hints to Collectors, p. 33, and others later) that ?the first edition was almost entirely taken up by the libraries.? Patten, pp. 290-92, states that 1,000 copies of the first issue and 750 of the second were printed and that probably most of the first and more than half of the second (1400) copies in all) were purchased by Mudie?s Select Library? (Smith I, p. 104, note 5). Smith I, 14. Eckel, pp. 91-93. Gimbel A146.

        ELECTION, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6th, 1861, FOR PRESIDENT, JEFFERSON DAVIS, OF MISSISSIPPI. FOR VICE-PRESIDENT, ALEXANDER H. STEPHENS, OF GEORGIA...

      [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 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 on 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). Parrish & Willingham locate only twelve examples of this scarce item. Not in Crandall. PARRISH & WILLINGHAM 6038. JENKINS 100:253.

        [Broadside] Pennsylvania and the Union! Her Armed Contribution to the Armies for the National Defence!

      [Harrisburg, PA]: Pennsylvania Telegraph, 1861. First edition. A very good copy with mailing folds, tiny tear at middle fold; stamped and addressed on verso else clean.. From the Pennsylvania Telegraph, October 26, 1861. Addressed in manuscript on verso to Ohio Governor William Dennison (with canceled postal stamp). The broadside was printed to help correct the paper's earlier article that had stated that Pennsylvania with 55,800 troops committed to the war lagged behind New York (90,500) and Ohio (67,100). The new analysis now showed that Pennsylvania had in fact supplied 101,070 men, this despite Pennsylvania's large concentration of both pacifist Quakers and Mennonites. "These statements, based on the most reliable facts and figures, show a result such as no other state in the Union can exhibit, notwithstanding the social and religious organization of our communities renders a vast portion of our people conscientious on the subject of bearing arms against their fellow men in any cause or for any purpose." The author ends with a statement of pride in Pennsylvania not only being the birth place of the Declaration of Independence and the site of the Constitutional Convention, but that "she sends forth from her midst... a large force to sustain the Declaration of Independence and vindicate the Constitution and laws, than has been contributed by any other commonwealth in the Union." Quite uncommon. OCLC locates only one copy at the Newberry Library. OCLC: 180773997.

        Viaje de Nueva Granada a China y de China a Francia

Old library stamp on title-page and last page of Indice. Spanish text. Armero, a member of a prominent Colombian family, traveled to China after spending a few years in Cuba and becoming interested in the notorious "coolie trade" (importing Asian men, often against their will, to labor under horrific conditions in the Americas). He traveled to China in 1855 via the United States, France and Egypt and spent the next three years in Southern China observing their customs and also dispatching several shiploads of Chinese workers to the New World. He devotes almost fifty pages to his visit to the Holy Land but has little else to say about his return trip to France. Armero remained heavily, and profitably, involved in the "coolie trade" for more than a decade after he made this trip.

        Calligraphic panel by Reis ul Hattatin (Chief Calligrapher) Ahmed Kamil Akdik , consists of a part of Qasidat al Burda

      32x25 cm. Thuluth and Naskhi in black ink on paper illustrated and fexed on illustrated paper in golden flworal shapes. Signed in wite ink in Thuluth: Katabahu al Hajj Kamil. Ahmed Kamil Akdik is one of the last great Ottoman calligraphers. Born in the F?nd?kl? neighborhood of Istanbul in 1861, Ahmed Kâmil displayed an interest in the art of calligraphy from his earliest years in primary school. In 1879 he began to study thuluth (sülüs) and naskhi (nesih) scripts with the most renowned calligrapher of the era, Sami Efendi (1838-1912), and after earning his certificate in 1884 with the approval of ?evki Efendi, he became one of the foremost Ottoman calligraphers. His certificate (icazet) is preserved in the Library of the Topkap? Palace Museum.After beginning to work for the Divan-? Hümayun (the Ottoman Imperial Council) in 1894, he learned from his teacher Sami Efendi the divani and celi divani scripts, as well as the inscription of the tu?ra, or imperial monogram, and replaced his teacher after the latter's retirement.He taught the thuluth and naskhi script at the Medresetü'l-Hattatin (school of calligraphy) that was established in 1915, and in 1918 gave lessons in rik'a script at the Galatasaray Secondary School. In 1915 he was honored by Sultan Re?ad (r. 1909-1918) with the title of Reisü'l-Hattatin (Chief Calligrapher), for his standing and success in his profession.Ahmed Kâmil began to teach calligraphy in 1936 at the State Academy of the Fine Arts, and continued doing so until his death; he experienced all the changes that took place during the transition from Arabic script to the Latin alphabet, conforming to the changes brought about by this language revolution in all the schools in which he taught, and becoming one of the leaders of this last generation of calligraphers. Ahmed Kâmil Akdik is the father of painter ?eref Akdik (1899-1972). Sakib Sabanci collection note.

        Autograph letter signed ("F. Liszt").

      N. p., 14 July [18]61. - 8vo. 2 pp. on blue wove paper bifolium. To Peter Cornelius ("Liebster Cornelius"), in German, telling him that he has just been informed that the full score of his opera, "Der Barbier von Bagdad", was not in the local theatre library as Cornelius had kept it, and asking that the score be sent to him by return, the trio being an essential part of the programme entitled "Performance of Manuscript Works of the Present Time". - Franz Liszt, Peter Cornelius's mentor and friend, was due to conduct a piece from Cornelius's controversial comic opera "Der Barbier von Bagdad" at the third concert of the Artists' Congress in Weimar on 7th August 1861. The opera was first performed at the Hoftheater in Weimar on 15th December 1858, amidst a hostile demonstration organised by the theatre director, Franz Dingelstedt, who was in conflict with Liszt and the so-called neo-German school of composition. Liszt resigned his post after the fracas and both he and Cornelius left Weimar as a result. The opera was not played again in its entirety in the composer's lifetime but, as is clear from this letter, Liszt remained loyal to his friend and secretary, and continued to champion his work. According to Grove, Cornelius was a "gifted independent composer" who "may have been the composer from the Liszt circle who, after Liszt and Wagner themselves, most successfully realised the musical ideals of the New German school, albeit in a highly personal idiom" (New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians VI, 477).

        The Progress of his Royal Highness Prince Alfred Ernest Albert through the Cape Colony, British Kaffraria, the Orange Free State, and Port Natal, in the year 1860

      1861 - xii,180pp. plus photographically illustrated titlepage and sixteen mounted albumen photographs. Original publisher's cloth, stamped in gilt; rebacked with most of original spine laid down. Corners lightly worn. Contemporary ownership inscription on front flyleaf. Light foxing and toning, heavier in some places. Most images clean, though one or two with some light foxing at the edges. Very good. With Some of the Earliest Photographic Images from South Africa, with a Striking Portrait of a Basuto Chief An early photographically illustrated book, and the first such book printed on the African continent. The volume was made to commemorate the visit of Alfred, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, one of Queen Victoria's sons. The book was designed to showcase the colony, which had hitherto been viewed in a less than positive light by the general British public. Prince Alfred was well-received by the colonists in South Africa, and the volume contains many positive facts about the colony's usefulness to the British Empire. The book includes seventeen images by photographer Joseph Kirkman, who was active in South Africa from 1859 to 1870. Some of the images in this volume are photographs of drawings or other artwork, but others do capture live scenes along the Prince's route, including a grand portrait of the African chief Moshesh and his advisors. The chief is pictured seated in the center of the image, dressed in a top hat and suit, holding a cane. The man seated next to him glowers at the camera and is draped in an animal pelt and holds a spear. Four men, all in Western dress, stand arrayed behind them. The images taken from life during the Prince's progress are as follows: [Untitled image on the titlepage showing several men next to a rail car full of large rocks. In 1860 Kirkman and Frederick York were employed by the Government and the Harbour Board to photograph the tilting of the first truck of stone off the Breakwater by Prince Alfred. This is, presumably, an image from that scene.] "Graham's Town, from the West" "The Reception of the Prince by a Burgher Escort near Queenstown" "The Prince's Interview with the Tambookies" "Moshesh and His Counsellors" "The Prince and His First Wildebeeste" "The Prince's Travelling Equipage" Not in THE TRUTHFUL LENS. A rare and interesting work, and notable for being the first photographically illustrated book produced in Africa. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Great Expectations.

      London Chapman & Hall 1861 - Fifth "edition" [impression], 3 vols, 8vo., vol. 1: title and dedication leaves +344pp., vol. 2: title and dedication leaves + 351pp, vol. 3: title and dedication leaves + 344p., without publishers catalogue at rear of vol. 3 but Smith states that 'some copies of the first five issues did not contain catalogues', modern half green calf over marbled boards, maroon lettering pieces, gilt, professionally closed tear to lower part of p.217 of vol. 1, the odd light spot here and there but very few, otherwise and exceptionally clean, bright set in very attractive and period style bindings. Although the title-page states 'Fifth Edition', in fact the first five editions are really only different impressions of the same edition. Apart from the title-pages the only differences are in the text where the type in the earliest impressions shows fewer signs of wear and damage. The title-pages were altered as it became apparent that the publishers had underestimated demand. It is probable that most copies of Great Expectations that purport to be first impressions (about 1,000 are considered to have been printed) are in fact later impressions with the title-pages altered or faked or supplied from genuine first impressions in poor condition. All of the traditional issue points are in fact common to all five impressions and the only reliable guide is to be found in the Clarendon Edition of Great Expectations which includes full bibliographical details including the latest research by Kathleen Tillotson, Margaret Cardwell and Brian Lake.
