SILVY, CAMILLE.
Bayswater, 1861. Original photograph, carte de visite, albumen print, 10 x 6 cm. Marie Caroline Miolan-Carvalho (31 December 1827 in Marseille - 10 July 1895 in Château-Puys, near Dieppe) was a famed French operatic soprano, particularly associated with light lyric and coloratura roles. Born Marie Caroline Félix-Miolan, she studied first with her father, François Félix-Miolan, an oboist, and later at the Conservatoire of Paris with Gilbert Duprez. After winning the first prize at the Conservatorie, she began touring throughout France, making her stage debut in Brest, as Isabelle in Robert le Diable, in 1849. Upon returning to Paris the following year, Marie Miolan made her debut in the title role in Lucia di Lammermoor at the Grand Opera on December 14, 1849. She went on to sing in Le Pré aux clercs, Les Huguenots, Der Freischütz, Hamlet, etc. From 1849-55 and 1868-85, Miolan-Carvalho sang in Paris at the Opéra-Comique as Caroline Carvalho. In 1853, she married Léon Carvalho, a French impresario and director of Théâtre Lyrique. After their marriage, she began to use the name Caroline Carvalho instead of Marie Miolan becoming the prima donna at the Théâtre Lyrique appearing from 1856 to 1867. She performed mostly in Mozart and Rossini roles, but also created there an estimated 30 roles, notably by Charles Gounod such as Marguerite in Faust (1859) where she notably inspired Gounod to remove sections of the score.[5] Other works include Baucis in Philémon et Baucis (1860), the title role in Mireille (1864) and Juliette in Roméo et Juliette (1867), but also Louis Clapisson's La … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jones, J.D. (?)
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1861. sep 22 2017. x-361, (10) pp. b/w plates, ills. First edition of one of the classics of whaling literature, who authorship remains a mystery. Howes cites a G.D. Jones as the author of this work, Forster and Hill a J.D. Jones. The title page assigns its authorship to “A Roving Printer.” Regardless of the author's true identity, he has produced an interesting and authentic narrative of a voyage on the New Bedford whaleship “Emily Morgan” (See Starbuck p. 460-461) and the “day-today occupations of two young men who shipped on the whaler for five years” (Hill). She called at Guam, Strong's Island, Hawaii, Tonga, Cook Islands and Juan Fernandez. Forster notes that many ships' names are mentioned in the text. Finally this work is adorned with 38 wonderful wood engraved full-page plates and illustrations in the text that convey the real flavor of South Pacific whaling. Hill 1023. Forster p. 16. Jenkins p. 116. Howes J-213. Four old glue marks in the corners of front paste down and free endpaper. Bound in original cloth, lightly worn, with nick in backstrip.

In the year of publication he returned to Africa to take up the role of British consul in Khartoum, and was entrusted by the Royal Geographical Society to assist Speke and Grant on their return trip from their search for the source of the Nile. Speke was long-delayed, but never forgave Petherick's failure to wait for him at their agreed rendez-vous in Gondokoro, and publicly accused him of involvement in the slave trade, an allegation "more connected with [Speke's] excessive zeal in reporting s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Abraham Lincoln
Lincoln Officially Commences the Civil War; He Orders the Blockade of the South. Abraham Lincoln. With war clouds hanging heavy over Washington in early April 1861 and the budding Confederate States of America a reality, the U.S. government seemed paralyzed and uncertain. Union General-in-Chief Winfield Scott was an exception; he developed a plan for the execution of the onrushing war. Scott's concept, later dubbed the Anaconda Plan, consisted of the blockade of the Southern seaports and control of the Mississippi River. This, he believed, would strangle the South by preventing it from exporting its crops for currency, preclude its receiving needed supplies and weapons to support its war effort, and isolate the western states from the eastern section of the Confederacy. Lincoln was aware that the blockading of ports was an act of war. In fact, since an act of war is, by implication, taken against another state, some in his cabinet argued that a blockade would constitute a tacit recognition of the sovereignty of the Confederacy, something the North was trying to avoid. Lincoln was less interested in the legal definitions than in the military utility of the plan, and he approved it despite the objections. On Friday, April 12, 1861, Confederate forces opened fire on Fort Sumter in Charleston harbor, initiating hostilities between the North and South. Lincoln immediately began moving to meet the crisis head on. The U.S. Army had less than 800 officers and only some 14,000 enlisted men, yet the federal government needed to mobilize for war. The only law in existence permitt … [Click Below for Full Description]

Abraham Lincoln
1861. This is the only Supreme Court circuit assignment we have ever seen reach the market Just deaccessioned by a major private collection, where it had remained for almost three decades As the Civil War dawned, the Federal judiciary was divided into district circuits, which were composed of states or groups of contiguous states subject to the same Federal court. These district courts had a certain amount of autonomy, as each was subject only to the U.S. Supreme Court rather than to its fellow circuits. Each circuit was assigned to a U.S. Supreme Court justice, who was usually a resident of the circuit to which he was assigned, and that justice held court in conjunction with the Federal district judges there. This circuits system, which had remained unchanged for decades, was in a chaotic state by the end of 1861. The Southern states had seceded and their circuits were inactive, and a number of states in the West, including Iowa, Wisconsin, Kansas, Minnesota, and California, were not assigned to any circuit. In December 1861 Senator John Sherman, brother of General William T. Sherman, introduced a bill to reorganize the Federal judiciary. The idea was to equalize the circuits, which would involve changing some circuits and creating new ones, and filling the three vacancies on the Supreme Court by naming new justices from these circuits. But the states that would be involved in the reorganization had their own interests, and backed their own Supreme Court candidates (especially Iowa and Illinois), so it proved difficult to achieve agreement. By the spring of 1862 there … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mendeleev, D.I.
St. Petersburg: Obshchestvennaia po'lza, 1861. [543] pp. 23x14 cm. Contemporary half-leather binding. Spine is restored. Some foxing in the text. Otherwise very good. First edition. Extremely rare. 27-year-old Dmitry Mendeleev (1834-1907) famously wrote this book in 61 days. The study on the organic chemistry was awarded with Demidov prize (the most prestigious scientific prize of the time). With this publication Mendeleev became widely-known in the world of science. The success helped him to secure the position at Saint Petersburg Technological University where 8 years later he produced another textbook 'Principles of Chemistry' that feautured the first periodic table of elements. 'The Organic Chemistry' became the most popular book on the subject in 19th century in Russia. In a way this work could be regarded as a preface to 'The Principles of Chemistry'. By writing it Mendeleev brought together all of the scattered knowledge in the field. The aim was to help students to understand it better, but sometimes it was too sophisticated for the students, as one of them told Dmitry Ivanovich 'he could not follow'. After that remark Mendeleev wrote: «The edifice of science requires not only material, but also a plan, and necessitates the work of preparing the materials, putting them together, working out the plans and symmetrical proportions of the various parts», and soon he started to work on 'The Principles'. No copies according to the Worldcat.

STIRLING-CLARKE, J.
Mennessier de la Lance II, p. 536; WorldCat (3 copies); this edition not in Podeschi. Rare first edition of the French translation of an early and important treatise on female equitation by Mrs. J. Stirling-Clarke. In the preface, which is included in both English and French, Stirling-Clark mentions she wrote the work because "although many books have been published which successfully impart a knowledge of riding to gentlemen, not one has appeared that can be regarded as a sufficiently comprehensive treatise for ladies, who are desirous of perfecting themselves in an accomplishment so peculiarly requiring, in their case, advise and instruction ."(introduction). She comments on the proper dress and horse for a lady, the position in a normal saddle and in a side-saddle, how to walk, trot and gallop, hunting and more. The chromolithographed plates show 4 stages of a trip on horseback: the departure, the walk, the step and the return. The illustrations in the text show among other things the proper position when sitting sideways.With a few minor stains, but otherwise in very good condition. Partly uncut and with most of the bolts unopened. [Attributes: First Edition]

Bakunin, Mikhail, Russian revolutionary anarchist, and founder of collectivist anarchism (1814-1876).
[London], 15. I. 1861. 8vo. 1 page. To an unnamed addressee: "Please excuse me for not coming today, but it was impossible for me, as I was already committed elsewhere. Even tomorrow I will not be able to see you, as I want to take advantage of an extraordinary opportunity to write to Russia. But the day after tomorrow I certainly want to see your home. Your unchanged, if older M. Bakunin" (transl. from the German original). - The arictocratic Russian anarchist, proponent of perpetual revolution, had escaped from Siberia to Japan in 1861, made his way from there to San Francisco, and then to London, where he began to renew his associations in revolutionary circles. A compelling if somewhat intemperate figure, Bakunin loathed Karl Marx and vigorously challenged his authority. This enmity led to Bakunin's expulsion from the International in 1872.
