HAIGH, Edward (active Melbourne, 1861-62)
Stereoscopic albumen print photograph, each individual image approximately 82 x 73 mm, mount 83 x 165 mm, versowith original printed paper label of the photographer Edward Haigh; the stereoscopic prints and the mounts are in fine condition. The English photographer Edward Haigh, who had studied with the Crimean War photographer Roger Fenton, arrived in Melbourne in January 1861. He opened a studio in South Yarra and spent over a year in the colony. Haigh specialised in stereoscopic photography and his views of Victoria, England and France won a first-class award at the 1861 Melbourne Exhibition. He returned to London in 1862, where his stereoviews of Melbourne and Victoria won a medal at the London International Exhibition that year. Geelong's Market Square occupied 8 acres in the centre of the township, on land that had been selected for this purpose by Governor Gipps. The distinctive clock tower, named the Austin Clock Tower after the Mayor of Geelong, James Austin, who had financed it, was completed on the site in 1856. It was a prefabricated construction, and featured a gilded weather vane in the form of a kangaroo. A much loved Geelong landmark for almost 70 years, the tower was scandalously demolished in 1923 to make way for the CML Building. Edward Haigh's very early view of the Geelong Market Square appears unrecorded.

Reinecke war von 1860-95 als Kapellmeister des Gewandhausorchesters, bis 1902 auch als Lehrer am Leipziger Konservatorium tätig. - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr.

HANKINS, MARIE LOUISE
New York: Published at the Office of Marie Louise Hankins' Pictorial Family Newspaper, 1861, 1861. First edition. Wright II, 1092; Sabin 30228; Hamilton, Early American Book Illustrators, 1696. Cloth well worn; lacking the rear free endpaper; a decent copy.. 8vo, original blind-stamped red cloth, gilt decorations and lettering. Two frontispieces and 32 plates, all printed on pale green paper. Although now relegated to obscurity (she is not recorded in any standard biographical dictionary - in book form or online), Mary Louise Hankins was apparently a formidable one-woman band in her day: she published and edited her own newspaper; she was the author, illustrator, and publisher of numerous books; and she was a tireless self-promoter. This narrative consists of thirty-three sketches of contemporary women, including "Rhoda Alwyn: The Perjured Bride," "Angelina Plump: The Lap-Dog's Mother," "Miss Biddy McKay: The Female Vagrant," "Lillie Bell: The Female Writer," etc., all of whom Hankins maintains are drawn from real life. The illustrations are clumsy but have the zest one would expect from Ms. Hankins. The final four pages include advertisements for her newspaper and other publications and want-ads for female canvassers to sell them.

Lucy, Armand.
Marseille, Jules Barile, 1861. - 8vo. 204 pp. With 2 lithographed maps, a lithographed folding plate, 6 wood engraved plates, and 5 wood engravings in text.Contemporary half, tanned sheepskin, marbled edges. First edition, in the original French, of a work on the Second Opium War during the years 1856-1860. The author, Armand Lucy, came to China in 1860, probably at the age of 23, as the interpreter to the French general Charles Cousin-Montauban (1796-1878). As an eyewitness, Lucy writes lively about the campaign in letters to his father, who published the letters he received in 1861. The book covers almost a year, starting in Ceylon in April 1860. Lucy gives a detailed account of several battles, with information about the strategies and the casualties. It also includes an account of the looting of the Summer Palace and of the Battle of Palikao, when the English and French took over Beijing, which played an important part in eventually defeating the Qing Empire. The text is illustrated with wood engraved views of Beijing. - Rare. Some foxing throughout the book. Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities. Overal a good copy. Cordier (Sinica) 2494f.

Light wear and soiling; small closed tear at the lower margin. Edward Dickinson Baker was a close friend of Abraham Lincoln and a Senator from Oregon.

Stone's Corps of Observation. In one of the first engagements of the war, the Battle of Ball's Bluff, near Leesburg Virginia, Baker was killed by a volley of Confederate fire when he was struck at least four times in the chest and head. Baker is the only serving U.S. Senator to have ever been killed in combat.

[Pearson, John J.]
[Harrisburg?, 1861. Elephant folio broadside, 9.5" x 24". Printed in three columns using different typesettings, surrounded by ornamental border. Old folds [splits along fold edges affecting occasional letters, a few old tape repairs on verso], small hole affecting a couple of letters, a few crimps. Tanned, several pencil underlines. Good copy of an unrecorded, and perhaps unique, document. Judge Pearson was appointed to the Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, bench in 1849. After Pennsylvania opted to elect judges, he was returned without opposition in 1851, 1861, and 1871. A popular man, he "had a deep rooted interest in the county" [Judge Homer L. Kreider, 'History of Dauphin County Courts. An Address Before the Historical Society of Dauphin County. January 21, 1952']. This lengthy Charge discusses the Nation's "fearful, bloody, and as we apprehend, protracted war, forced upon it without cause or reason by the so called Confederate States. It is the bounden duty of the Federal government to use every possible exertion, and strain every nerve, to suppress the rebellion, restore the Union, and re-establish the Constitution over the whole United States, and it is equally the duty of every citizen to contribute toward the support of a beneficent paternal and most indulgent government, in every way that his circumstances will permit..." Judge Pearson warns against "traitorous correspondence with enemies of the United States, or of this State," and denounces the "secret orders in our State, having for their object the subversion of the Government, in whole or in part." … [Click Below for Full Description]

E J Lowe and W Howard
London : Groombridge and Sons, 1861 A fair copy of the 1st edition with 60 colour printed plates. In original cloth binding with blind stamped decoration and a gilt picture of a plant on the front board, and gilt decoration and titles to the spine. With original endpapers. The book consists of descriptions of each of the plants, with a black and white illustration and a colour plate showing the leaf. All the plates are tissue guarded and are bright and clean. The cloth binding is sunned with wear to top and bottom of spine and bumping to corners. There is a dedication to Mary Auckland, Dec 24, 1863 to the rear of the fep. The strong colour printing has caused off-setting - which is mostly onto the tissue guards. There is a light brown mark to the outside edge margin which appears at page 105 and marks the edges of the plates from 52 onwards. This does not affect the plant image and does not affect the text. Plate 56 has a vertical fold.

MORLEY, Henry. [1822-1894]
London, Chapman and Hall, 1861. First Edition. This copy is inscribed by Mr.Morley on the half title. Bound in publisher's embossed purple cloth faded to spine, titled and decorated in gilt to spine and front board. Light bumping and wear to extremities, fraying to head of spine and a small hole in the cloth midway down the spine panel. Pencil ownership to front flyleaf. Essentially a strong, solid copy of a charming little book of Victorian fairy tales, many of which lean strongly towards the surreal; including a particularly mental example where great attention is paid to decoding the message written on the back of a very talkative mackerel. Morley seems to have been responsible for dispensing potted education to every literate occupant of Victorian England. He was responsible for Morley's Universal Library, Cassell's National Library, and was the long time editor of Charles Dickens' Household Words to boot. He is said to have edited and written over three hundred volumes during the course of his distinguished career. We can only suppose that he knocked off this little collection of Carroll-esque bits and pieces in the quiet part of an afternoon when he wasn't learning the violin and translating Tacitus.

BOSCHKE, Albert
D. McClelland, Blanchard & Mohun,, Washington, D.C., 1861 - The first detailed survey of D.C. and her environs Engraved map, 2 sheets joined (some minor repairs to margins).
