        Letters of Reasons, Separation of the Roman Church from the Eastern.

      Typography of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, St. Petersburg 1862 - recent ½ calf with marbled boards, spine with 5 compartments of raised bands title in gilt., Text in RussianIn the 11th century the Great Schism took place between Rome and Constantinople, which led to separation of the Church between the Roman Catholic Church, and the Eastern Orthodox Church. There were doctrinal issues like authority of the Pope involved in the split, but these were exacerbated by cultural and linguistic differences between Latins and Greeks.The final breach is often considered to have arisen after the sacking of Constantinople by the Fourth Crusade in 1204. The sacking of the Church of Holy Wisdom and establishment of the Latin Empire in 1204 is viewed with some rancour to the present day.The Russian Orthodox Church also known as the Orthodox Catholic Church of Russia, is that body of Christians who are united under the Patriarch of Moscow, who in turn is in communion with the other patriarchs and primates of the Eastern Orthodox Church., Size : 4to, P. half-title, blank, title, printer?s imprint, (2), i-xxiv, (2), 1-434, (2), 1-6, 1-49, (1) Mild occasional foxing otherwise an excellent copy.

        British Entomology;.

      being illustrations and descriptions of the genera of insects found in Great Britain and Ireland; containing coloured figures from nature of the most rare and beautiful species, and in many instances of the plants upon which they are found. London, Lovell Reeve & Co., 1862. 8 volumes. Royal-8vo (236 x 147mm). With 770 handcoloured engraved (some lithographed) plates and descriptive text. Contemporary half citron morocco, spines in 6 compartments with gilt lines, gilt edges, frontcovers with gilt coat of arms of Sherborne library (Lord Digby). A splendidly bound copy of noble provenance. One of the most beautifully illustrated works on British insects. The first edition was published by the author in parts from 1824-1839 and once described by Cuvier as 'the paragon of perfection'. 'His artistic trademark was the depiction of insects on or by their corresponding foodplant... ' (Salmon p. 138), which render the plates particularly charming. John Curtis was born in Norwich in 1791, son of an engraver, and his mother was described as a 'cultivator of flowers'. At the age of sixteen he went to work for a local solicitor and began to supplement his income by collecting and selling insect specimens to the gentlemen entomologists of the day and learnt the art of scientific illustration. His first published illustrations appeared in Kirby and Spence's bestseller 'Introduction to Entomology' (1815-26). In 1817 he went to London where he met many of the leading natural historians, such as Sir Joseph Banks./"John Curtis is described as the first entomologist to earn a living, albeit a rather poor one, as a scientist. He liked to travel although it proved difficult because of his financial problems but he collected extensively in Britain, Ireland and Europe. In 1825 he travelled to Scotland by steam packet and returned by land, walking most of the way and collecting insects and adding thirty-two new species to the British list - all material for his dream work 'British Entomology'" (Gilbert p. 142).//Provenance: Armorial bookplate of Sherborne Library on verso of frontcover.//Nissen ZBI, 1000; B.M.(N.H.)I, 407.

        Bound Volume of Handbills for Musical Performances at two German theaters: W. Diehm's Forsyth Street Conzert-halle and Steuben Haus in New York City

      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]

        The Lord Mayor of London

      sp;- London - Chapman and Hall 1862 - An uncommon first edition of this historical novel by William Harrison Ainsworth. One of the most difficult to source. Fading to spines as normally seen. No half titles called for. Complete in three volumes. William Harrison Ainsworth (4 February 1805 3 January 1882) was an English historical novelist born in Manchester. He trained as a lawyer, but the legal profession held no attraction for him. While completing his legal studies in London he met the publisher John Ebers, at that time manager of the King's Theatre, Haymarket. Ebers introduced Ainsworth to literary and dramatic circles, and to his daughter, who became Ainsworth's wife. Ainsworth briefly tried the publishing business, but soon gave it up and devoted himself to journalism and literature. His first success as a writer came with Rookwood in 1834, which features Dick Turpin as its leading character. A stream of 39 novels followed, the last of which appeared in 1881. Ainsworth died in Reigate on 3 January 1882. Condition: In cloth covered bindings. Externally, sound with shelfwear and bumping. Internally, firmly bound, bright and generally clean clean with the odd spot and mark. Publisher's ink stamp to each title page. Overall: VERY GOOD [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

(Blake includes a 26-line excerpt.) The author had planned extensive revisions, but Innocêncio notes that they did not appear in this edition.The author (secular name Francisco Carlos da Silva) was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1768, and died there in 1829.

      Fullarton, London 1862 - An important map of BC done before the famous Trutch map of BC. The areas of the Fraser Valley Gold rush and the Cariboo Gold Rush are outlined on the map.The time that the map was done coincides with the end of the Faser Canyon Gold rush in 1860 and the beginning of the Cariboo Gold Rush.Faser Canyon Gold rush occurred in 1858 after gold was discovered on the Thompson River at its confluence with the Nicoamen River, a few miles upstream from the Thompson's confluence with the Fraser at present-day Lytton.The Cariboo Gold Rush was a gold rush in the Canadian province of British Columbia. Although the first gold discovery was made in 1859 at Horsefly Creek, followed by more strikes at Keithley Creek and Antler Creek in 1860, the actual rush did not begin until 1861, when these discoveries were widely publicized. By 1862, following the strikes at William's Creek, the gold rush was in full effect., Size : 420x540 (mm), 16.5x21.25 (Inches), Original Hand Coloring

      Rio de Janeiro, B.L. Garnier (printer's colophon Vienna: Imperial e Real Typographia), 1862. - Title with wood-engraved vignette, within elaborate floral frame. (3 ll.), 344 pp. 8°, publisher's quarter morocco, cloth sides blocked in gilt and blind (light wear, front cover spotted), spine richly gilt with raised bands in five compartments, text-block edges gilt, endleaves of glazed paper embossed in a moiré silk pattern. Some scattered minor stains, mostly marginal. Overall in very good to fine condition. ---- FIRST EDITION of this collection of 100 poems addressed to the poet's wife, on a wide variety of subjects and in varying meters.Gonçalves de Magalhães (1811-1882, a native of Rio de Janeiro) was an important author of nineteenth-century Brazilian fiction and poetry. Inspired by the European Romantics, he founded @Niterói: Revista brasiliense in Paris in 1836, and was considered the elder member of the new Romantic school when he returned to Brazil. His notable work in the Romantic style is @Suspiros poeticos e saudades, Paris 1836. In his later works, including the @Confederação and @Antônio José, he returned to a more classicizing style.Magalhães's work has suffered the extremes of lavish praise and bitter condemnation. José de Alencar said of the @Confederação, "Bem sei que o Sr. Magalhães não teve pretensões de fazer uma Ilíada ou Odisséia americana; mas quem não é Homero deve ao menos procurar imitar os mestres; quem não é capaz de criar um poema, deve ao menos criar no poema alguma coisa" (quoted in @Nossos Clássicos 55, p. 107; see also pp. 10-12). Putnam, on the other hand, calls him "one of the greatest poets that Brazil has produced ? he is near to being the national poet, one who was enthusiastically acclaimed by the people even before he was by the elite" (p. 111).---- Innocêncio IX, 143: calling for iv, 344 pp. Sacramento Blake II, 219: without collation.

      [Atlanta]: Southern Confederacy Job Office Print, Nov. 1, 1862.. Broadside, 15 1/2 x 10 3/4 inches. Old folds and wrinkles. Sheet tanned and a bit foxed, some wear at edges. Good. An unrecorded Confederate slave sale broadside, giving details of an 1862 auction of slaves and land in Georgia. The date of the sale was Tuesday, Dec. 2, 1862 and was held in Calhoun, Georgia, about seventy miles north of Atlanta. It is noteworthy that this sale was scheduled to take place just two months after Abraham Lincoln&#39;s order declaring the freedom of all slaves in the Confederate states. The text states that the land belongs to the estate of Brian Greer, and describes it thusly: "The tract of land contains six hundred and forty acres, more or less, and is situated upon the waters of Oostanaula River...the land is remarkably level, well watered, and is adapted to grain, cotton or stock." It is noted that the Dalton and Jackson Rail Road line will soon pass nearby, and the agricultural qualities of the land are also touted. Specific details about the slaves being offered are not given, though the land is described as having "negro cabins for twenty or thirty hands." Though no place of publication is listed, there was a "Southern Confederacy Job Office Print" in Atlanta. Not in Parrish & Willingham, nor in Hummel or on OCLC. Rare, and good evidence of the Confederacy&#39;s continuing commerce in humans, even in the midst of the Emancipation Proclamation.

      Rochester Press ("Set-up, and Imprinted, in Leisure-time, by Edwin Roffe"), London 1862 - Small 4to. (6.75" x 8.5"). 4ff., 11 + 21 + 7 + 3 + 3 + 7 + 13 pp. Illustrated throughout with line engraved by Roffe. ADDED: 11 pp. ("Sundry Slips") + 6 pp. ("Basket of Bright Berries") PRIVATELY PRINTED FUNERAL INSCRIPTIONS, LIMITED TO JUST 16 (SIXTEEN) COPIES, "set-up, and Imprinted, in Leisure-time, by Edwin Roffe". A rather eccentric and extraordinary romp, based on John Weever's 1631 book "Ancient Funerall Monuments." It consists of no less than 7 short books, issued together, recounting various travels through graveyards, by graveyards, or just thinking about old friends who are in graveyards. BOUND WITH OUR COPY ARE TWO ADDITIONAL BOOKLETS (both limited to just 16 copies): "Sundry Slips of Yew, set to the Memory of Divers Citizens of London. Inscriptions from Church-Yard Tombs" (1864), 11 pp. NOT IN DOBELL; OCLC lists only 2 copies worldwide (none in America). WITH: "A Basket of Bright Berries from the Yew Trees of Paradise" (1864), 6 pp. NOT IN DOBELL; NOT IN OCLC. Roffe's "Walks in the Way of Old Weever" contains a number of funeral inscriptions, "copied by Mr. Roffe from the original monuments. He named his work as above, in veneration of the memory of Weever, the author of 'Ancient Funerall Monuments.' Mr. Roffe's book contains many curious and interesting epitaphs, with notes upon their peculiarities, and upon the person commemorated. The collector tells us that his book contains only a small portion of the many inscriptions he had gathered together, all of which he had once hoped to preserve in print" (Bertram Dobell, Catalogue of Books printed for Private Circulation, 1906, p. 155). Roffe, an antiquarian, printer and engraver, was not ridiculing Weever herein, but was obviously enjoying his playful emulations of the 17th century "connoisseur of graveyards, tobacco-enthusiast, sycophant, satirist, dwarf (and) penner of dirty ditties" (Ian Wright). It is not only the text, but Roffe's typographical style, flourishes and enthusiasm, which seems to gently mock other, more serious Victorian books of the period, and all one can say in the end is that the entire production is an outstanding example of the truly Private Press. Other similar efforts by Roffe (all privately printed by him and limited to 16 copies) include "British Monumental Inscriptions; gathered occasionally, from divers Churchyards" (1859-1861) and "The Tomb Seeker. Funeral Records" (1863); OCLC lists only a handful of copies in this hemisphere. Our copy appears to be the only one in private ownership. VERY GOOD CONDITION (endpapers spotted, minor wear to binding extremities); an attractive copy of a charming and unique book Bound in contemporary dark brown quarter calf over patterned brown cloth, gilt spine title and urns [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Prince Alfred was a midshipman, visiting most of the West India islands with good cameo descriptions. The heart of the book consists of the author's getlemanly appreciations of Nova Scotia- Ship Harbour, Arichat, Louisbourg, Sydney- and especially of Halifax. His lively accounts of inter-shipboat races, of cricket between the officers of the St. George and those ofthe garrison, of his crewmates' amateur theatricals at the "Theatre RoyalSpring Gardens", present a vivid portrait of a high-Victorian provincial culture; and one, apparently, of some notoriety: "It is astonishing how manynaval and military officers get caught in the matrimonial noose at Halifax.But allow me to give one warning- They are all cousins; so beware what yousay." With numerous interesting diversions, including one on the several methods of lobster-catching employed by the ladies of the town. Uncommon.Rubbed with slight wear to extremities, one inch splits to head and tail of outer hinges, feps slightly discoloured, tiny nick to fold of frontispiece, else very good. 1500.00 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
