"Only a few copies were printed, for distribution among those interested in Indian Affairs. Hopkin's account is a splendid journal of an observant and articulate traveller. He set out in February, 1804, and he provides us with a full day-by-day account of his journey. He crossed the Ohio on March 10th, reached Zanesville on the 15th; provides a fine account of New Lancaster; which he reached the following day. Arrived in Chillicothe on the 17th; where the famous hollow sycamore caught his attention; as well as the Indian mounds. Proceeded up the river to Waynesville on the 23rd, and reached Dayton, March 24, 1804.

First Edition.First edition of a landmark novel of the 19th century. The story of detective Javert's pursuit of the criminal Jean Valjean, culminating in a chase through the slums and sewers of Paris, qualifies Hugo's novel for inclusion as a Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone. The books covers have a marble like pattern and smooth texture and they all contain elaborate engravings of illustrations in the book. I am not sure if this is also a first printing as well as first edition as it does not say that it is a reprint, but I can confirm that they are all first edition.

[8], [1]-104, [4], [1]-100, [4], [1]-112, [4], [1]-120, [4], [1]-120 p. Five first or early Shakespeare editions in Czech. Despite the numbering of the volumes of this series, it seems that the copies vary in content, they were supposedly custom made for subscribers, thus the dates of the plays the volume contains do not always correspond to the date on the title page. I give the most probable dates of each title according to the NKC - Electronic Catalogue of the National Library of the Czech Republic, however, what we find in the book might be a later issue of the indicated edition. 1. Ve?er t?ikrálový, aneb Cokoli chcete (Twelfth Night, or What You Will): This is the first Czech translation of the play. Published first in this series in 1862. 2. Dvé ?lechtic?

This is the most elaborate treatise of Chinese porcelain printed in the 19th century. Jacquemart and Le Blant made it their goal to classify the various types of porcelain, in particular the Chinese porcelains. To this day the terms such as Famille Verte, Rose, Noire, Blanc de Chine, Poudre Bleu, Email sur Biscuit are still used. The 28 engraved plates show a wonderful variety of Chinese porcelains, most of which were produced for the European market. Also Japanese wares are extensively described and illustrated. Among one of the most fascinating illustrations is a plate of a jar with Cornelis Pronks decoration of the Doctor's Visit. It is the earliest known depiction of a Pronk porcelain item. A true must for any serious collector!.

SILVA, Luiz Augusto Rebello da (et al.).
Corpo diplomatico Portuguez contendo os actos e relações politicas e diplomaticas de Portugal.Lisbon, Typographia da Academia Real das Sciencias / Imprensa Nacional, 1862-1959. 15 volumes (final volume in 2 parts). Small folio (22.5 x 28.5 cm). Uniformly bound in half tan sheepskin, decorated paper sides, gold-tooled spines, decorated endpapers, sprinkled edges. Some original publishers printed wrappers bound in. First editions of all volumes published in this massive project. The Corpo diplomatico deals with the relations between Portugal and the Roman curia, presenting a chronologically arranged sequence of documents of the 16th and 17th centuries. The Portuguese empire was the first global empire in history, and the sources edited and published here - frequently citing the significant Portuguese royal title "King of Portugal and the Algarves, on this side of the sea, and on the other side in Africa, Lord of Guinea and of the naval and commercial conquest of Ethiopia, Arabia, Persia and India" - provide substantial information on the principal world issues and conflicts during that vast Empire's first era. Much of the diplomatic correspondence concerns conflicts between the worlds of Christianity and Islam.Furthermore, there are reports on the Portuguese in Suez, Africa (including Angola, Mozambique, Guiné, Sofala, Morocco, Arguin, Cabo Verde, Congo, São Thomé, Ethiopia), Brazil (Bahia, Maranhão, Rio de Janeiro, Pernambuco), the Azores, India (in nearly every volume, including Goa, Cochin, Damão, Malabar), and the Far East (Malacca and the Moluccas, with a few sections on … [Click Below for Full Description]

(ENTOMOLOGY). HARRIS, THADDEUS WILLIAM
Boston: William White, 1862. Third Edition (First Illustrated). 237 x 152 mm. (9 1/4 x 6"). xi, [1], 640 pp. Third Edition (First Illustrated). Publisher's brown cloth decorated in gilt and blind, upper cover with oval ornament composed of insects and vegetation, smooth spine with gilt titling. With numerous black & white illustrations in the text, five of these full-page, and EIGHT COLOR PLATES depicting a total of 107 insects. Front pastedown with blank engraved award certificate for a county fair exhibition in the 1860s. Sabin 30524. One corner gently bumped, gilt lettering on spine a little discolored, occasional faint offsetting, but A VERY FINE COPY WITH NO SIGNS OF USE and few signs of age. Written by a Harvard librarian and leading American entomologist, this is an outstanding copy of one of the most important treatises on pest control in agriculture printed in the 19th century. Thaddeus William Harris (1795-1856) trained as a medical doctor but gave up the profession to become librarian at Harvard University, where he introduced one of the first card catalogue systems and increased the University's holdings from 30,000 to 65,000 over the course of his tenure. Though diligent in this work, Harris' real passion was for entomology; his spare time was devoted to the study of insects, and he eventually acquired nearly 10,000 specimens--in its day, a collection considered the finest in the United States. Sometimes overshadowed by contemporaries like naturalist Asa Grey (who was given a Harvard professorship over Harris) and fellow entomologist Thomas Say, Harris' wo … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Harris, Joel Chandler.] [Confederate Newspaper.]
1862. The Countryman is the only newspaper known to have been published on a Southern plantation. J.A. Turner was the owner of the Turnwold plantation and editor of the newspaper. This issue features a full-page editorial titled "God Bless Our Southern Women!" which extolled their virtues during wartime. Also of interest is a full page devoted to "Teaching Negroes to Read." (The author of the piece was quite clear in his views of educating slaves: "Negroes are incapable of education, and it will be a waste of our time and resources to attempt to confer it upon them...")Joel Chandler Harris, author of the Uncle Remus, Brer Rabbit and Brer Fox stories, was employed as a printer's apprentice at Turnwold from 1862 (at which time he was 16 years old) to 1866. Indeed it was during his employment at Turnwold that he heard the stories told by slaves which served as the basis for his later successful literary efforts. This issue of The Countryman contains a brief item about a recipe for making black writing ink signed "J.C. Harris." This issue of the paper comes from the personal collection of Joel Chandler Harris, handed down to his youngest daughter, Mildred Harris Camp, then to her granddaughter from whom it was purchased by a prominent newspaper dealer and then by me.

HUGO Victor
- 21 décembre 1862, 10,5x13,4cm, une feuille. - Lettre autographe inédite signée de Victor Hugo à l'imprimeur Jules Claye, écrite à Hauteville House et datée du 21 décembre [1862]. 31 lignes sur un feuillet remplié. L'écrivain prépare une édition de ses dessins, qui paraît l'année suivante avec une préface de Théophile Gautier, et "dont la vente était destinée à grossir la caisse du déjeuner qu'il offrait chaque semaine à plusieurs dizaines d'enfants pauvres, dans sa belle demeure de Hauteville House à Guernesey" (Victor Hugo dessinateur génial et halluciné, Jules Delalande). Hugo, très exigeant, refuse énergiquement dix-huit des vingt-quatre gravures sur bois de ses dessins, réalisés par un certain Gérard : "je tenais extrêmement à la destruction de ces bois déplorablement manqués", et fustige les actions de Castel, éditeur de l'album : "M. Castel, a fait deux fautes graves pour son succès : publier ma lettre trop tôt, publier l'album trop tard. Je crois que sa vente aux étrennes sera fort compromise, je le crains." "H.H. Mon cher Monsieur Claye, Merci de votre bonne et charmante lettre, dans tout ce que vous écrivez je retrouve votre esprit et votre coeur. Je vous suis obligé du petit procès verbal, je tenais extrêmement à la destruction de ces bois déplorablement manqués. M.

[Civil War]: [Maine]
[Various locations, mostly Louisiana, 1862. [120]pp. Contemporary sheep, later leatherette backstrip, titles stamped in dark brown on front board, reading, "GUARD BOOK D. CO. 12th REG. MAINE." Some edge wear, mild chipping, and light scuffing to boards. Front hinge detached, spine cracked, occasional thumb-soiling to text. Still, very good. A manuscript record book documenting an entire year of guard duty worked by various members of Company D, 12th Maine Infantry Regiment Volunteers during the early part of the Civil War. The majority of time recorded in this book emanates from Louisiana, while the 12th Maine Regiment was attached to Butler's Expeditionary Corps from January to March 1862. On their way to Louisiana, the regiment travelled on the Steamship Constitution to Ship Island, Mississippi, serving there until May 4, 1862. The Regiment then traveled to New Orleans for guard duty at the U.S. Mint until October 1862. While in New Orleans, the Regiment took part in the expedition to Pass Manchaca from June 16-20 and the expedition to Ponchatoula from September 13-18. In October, the Regiment moved slightly north to Camp Parapet in Shrewsbury, Louisiana, and served there until Nov. 19, 1862; the record book ends here. Each two-page opening of the ledger is pre-printed with a large column on the left for names and thirty-one numbered smaller columns for marking days served on guard duty. Most days have just one or two tick marks for any particular soldier, indicating just one or two men were on active patrol, mostly privates, but also sergeants, corporals, musician … [Click Below for Full Description]

Expertly rebacked with orig. spine laid down. See my other unrestored copy. Freeman 800. Asa Gray is quoted in the Life and Letters of Charles Darwin as saying, "if the orchid-book (with a few trifling omissions) had appeared before the 'Origin' the author would have been canonised rather than anathematised by the natural theologians," and notes that a review in the Literary Churchman found only one fault "that Mr. Darwin's expression of admiration at the contrivances in orchids is too indirect a way of saying, 'O Lord, how mainifold are Thy works.'" This work is concerned with figuring detailing the relationships between sexual structures of orchids and the insects which fertilize them, and attributes their evolution to natural selection. First edition. Cover faded to brown. Rather than describe the condition in detail here, please ask for a full set of photos.

ROSSETTI, Dante Gabriel.) MEREDITH, George.
London: Chapman & Hall, 1862. Octavo. Original green wave grain cloth (Carter's A binding), spine titled in gilt. Front cover stained, fraying to cloth at lower edge, ink shelfmark stamp to front free endpaper. First edition, presentation copy inscribed by the author to D. G. Rossetti on the title page, "Dante Gabriel Rossetti, from his friend, George Meredith", with authorial manuscript corrections in the text. (The Hayward exhibition copy, also inscribed and corrected, had a note in Merdith's hand apologizing for "Errata ennumerable".) Meredith's novel Evan Harrington was serialized in Once a Week in 1860, and it was through his contacts at the magazine that he met Rossetti. Meredith's frequent London commitments in 1862-3 led to him spending Thursday nights at Rossetti's Chelsea home (where Swinburne was also a guest). Merdedith served as a model for Jesus in Rossetti's "Mary Magdalene at the gate of Simon the Pharisee". Modern Love — a 50-sonnet sequence which documents Meredith's betrayal by his first wife — is described as "the most painfully personal of his works" (ODNB).

DUNANT, Jean Henry.
Geneva: Jules-Guillaume Fick, 1862. Tall octavo (270 x 172 mm). Contemporary red half cloth, gilt lettered spine, marbled sides, with the original drab brown wrappers bound in. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Spine sunned, general light peripheral toning to letterpress. An excellent copy. Double-page coloured plan of the battle. First edition. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on a blank before the half-title: "Monsieur Albert Dunant de la part de l'auteur", apparently in a secretarial hand. An excellent familial association: Albert Dunant was a state councillor for the canton of Geneva; this copy also carries his attractive etched bookplate and official autograph stamp on the half-title. One of 1,600 copies privately printed by Dunant. "Dunant, a Swiss philanthropist, must have been aware of Florence Nightingale's work in the Crimea, for it was what he read of the treatment of the sick and wounded in that war that drove him to the seat of the war in Italy between the French and the Austrians in 1859. He was present at the battle of Solferino, where the casualties were appalling, totalling nearly 40,000 on both sides. The treatment of the wounded was worse than callous: it was virtually non-existent. Dunant's account of the state of affairs, disarmingly entitled A Souvenir of Solferino, produced almost immediate results. An unofficial international conference met in Geneva in October 1863, and in the following year the Swiss Government called for an official conference at which the Geneva Convention was drawn up and signed o … [Click Below for Full Description]

BARNARD, John Gross.
The C.S.A. and the Battle of Bull Run.New York, D. Van Nostrand; London, Trübner & co. (back of title-page: C.A. Alvord), 1862. 8vo. With 5 folding maps. Publisher's red cloth, with title in gold on front board. 124, [12] pp. First and only edition of an account of the Battle of Bull Run by the chief-engineer of the Union Army of the Potomac, who was present at the battle. Written in an epistolary form as a "letter to an English friend", it aims to "vindicate the battle of Bull Run from the obloquy that had fallen upon it, and to establish a claim for it in the category of well planned and well fought battles". Barnard aimed for a broad overview, considering "the brief narrative of General McDowell, in his official report, was (unaccompanied by the reports of his subordinates) too general. The reports of the subordinate officers are too circumstantial" (pp. 3-4). The (first) Battle of Bull Run was the first major battle in the American Civil War and resulted in a Confederate victory. Having expected an easy victory, the defeat combined with the poorly managed Union retreat led to great panic among the wealthy inhabitants of the nearby city of Washington, several of whom had come to watch the battle. The resulting chaos with soldiers throwing away their weapons and abandoning wagons and artillery and panicking civilians blocking the roads, became known as "The Great Skedaddle". Barnard devotes a substantial appendix to downplaying the disorder ("I saw everywhere confusion and disorganization but the panic was but brief in time and limited as to locality" (p. 109)) and descri … [Click Below for Full Description]

Disdéri, [André-Adolphe-Eugène]
Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1862. First edition. Thick 8vo., 367 pp., illustrations in text. Contemporary binding of half morocco and marbled paper over boards, spine titled and decorated in gilt. Spine, tips and edges rubbed, lacking a few chips to the marbled paper; faint scattered foxing and soil; else very good. André-Adolphe-Eugène Disdéri (1819 - 1889) a self-taught daguerreotypist, researched and improved upon the existing collodion-on-glass negative process, which he outlined in his first publication, Manuel Opératoire de Photographie sur Collodion Instantané, 1853. That same year, he returned to Paris and opened the largest studio in Paris, which spread across two floors. It was there that he introduced his carte-de-visite portraits which were a great financial success. For the 1855 Paris Exposition Universelle, he formed the Société du Palais de l'Industrie and obtained the rights to photograph all the products and works of art exhibited at the Exposition.In this, his best known and most influential book, Disdéri provides an introduction to the materials of photography, including photomechanical processes, a through discussion of the collodion process, and in the final part he discusses his approach to the practice and the art of photography, defending it as more than a mechanical operation, with comparisons to painting. Eder writes "Disdéri was considered the outstanding portrait photographer of his time in Paris. Napoleon III appointed him court photographer. In 1861 he instructed French officers in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lincoln, Abraham; Edwin M. Stanton; Edward Griffin Beckwith
Rare military commission boldly signed by Abraham Lincoln as President July 5, 1862 and countersigned by Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton. One page, partially printed with engraved vignettes and retaining the original blue paper seal, the commission appoints Edward G. Beckwith as Additional Aide-de-Camp with the rank of Colonel. In fine condition. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 24 inches by 21 inches. Accompanied by a later appointment letter dated August 1, 1865 on Stanton's War Department letterhead appointing Beckwith "for distinguished services in the Subsistence Department during the War, a Lieutenant Colonel by Brevet" and singed by Stanton at the conclusion.

Lauter & Becker, [New York], 1862. Octavo. Quarter calf and marbled papercovered boards. Text in German. Spine perished, both boards detached, modest foxing and small chips and stains, particularly on the last couple of handbills, overall good or better. The volume contains 46 handbills for German musical comedies and light operas, as follows: 40 handbills printed rectos only for Wilhelm Diehm's Forsyth St. Conzert-halle (hand-numbered 2-41; apparently one is lacking) and six handbills printed rectos only for Steuben Haus in the Bowery (hand-numbered 42-47). Each show seems to have run for a week or two, and as they run consecutively, one can be reasonably certain that Steuben Haus suceeded the Forsyth Street Conzert-halle. The proprietor of Forsyth Street is listed as Nathaniel Rosenbaum, but Steuben Haus was founded and run by Sixtus Ludwig Kapff, a Wuerttemberg revolutionist who was forced to flee to the U.S when the 1848 movement was crushed. He served briefly in the Union Army before returning to New York City to found his theater. During the 19th Century, New York had the third largest German population of any city in the world, and musical theatre played an important role in the immigrant population's community, and one imagines even more so during the Civil War. Perhaps because of the language barriers, surprisingly little research has been done on the subject. A nice volume of ephemeral handbills that helps illustrate the vibrancy of the German musical theatre in daily immigrant life. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
