        Atlas Ichthyologique des Indes Orientales Néêrlandaises. Publié sous les auspices du Gouvernement Colonial Néêrlandais.

      Amsterdam, F. Muller, 1862-1865. Volumes 1-5 (of 9) volumes. Folio (450 x 295 mm). With 240 plates of which 238 superbly chromo-lithographed. Later half cloth library bindings, the last volume loose in original printed wrappers. There is no title to volume 5 and the text runs from page 1-96 (of 152), the plates 232-240 belong to volume 6, library stamp on titles. A complete copy has 9 vols and 420 plates and was published from 1862 to 1878. A magnificent ichthyological atlas, the most splendid work on fishes of the nineteenth century. It is the only major work on the fishes of the Indo-Pacific ocean. In 1845 Bleeker started his project, however the first printing was realised 18 years later. Due to his death the work remained unfinished. During his life Bleeker sent more than 12.000 fishes from the East Indian Archipelago to Holland. The edition of the present work must have been very small as Bleeker in his biography mentions only 60 subscribers. The plates are splendidly executed after drawings by L. Speigler and chromolithographed by C.W. Mieling and later by Emrik & Binger. According to Junk, Rara p. 140 'les planches chromo-lithographiées sont d'une exécution magnifique et sont en effet les meilleures que la litérature moderne d'Ichthyologie a produit. Bleeker est l'auteur le plus fertile de sa science'. //The volumes are composed as follows: I. Scaroïdes et Labroïdes; II. Siluroïdes, Chacoïdes et Hétérobranchoïdes; III. Cyprins; IV. Murènes, Synbranches, Leptocéphales; V. Baudroies, Ostracions, Gymnodontes, Balistes.//Junk, Rara 140; Nissen ZBI, 409.

        Union Soldiers Recounts Conquest of Island No. 10

      [New Madrid], Missouri 1862 - Amos Downing, Autograph Letter Signed, to his brother (Philip Downing). Island No. 10. [New Madrid], Missouri, April 9, 1862. 4 pp. With autograph envelope. A day after the Confederate surrender, Amos Downing gives his brother an exciting account of the Siege of Island No. 10 from the perspective of someone who may have served under Commodore Andrew Foote in the riverboat fleet that collaborated with General John Pope. Downing correctly identifies Fort Pillow, eighty miles to the south on the Mississippi, Memphis, and New Orleans as the next Union targets in the Mississippi Valley. His description of Confederate prisoners reveals a measure of discontent within Southern ranks. "The prisoners taken here are all Irish they say that they were force[d] in the service and are satisfied to be taken prisoner. They didnt know what to make of maters. They said first a big smoke and next a noise like thunder and next thing the devil himself would come among them and that was worst than fighting with sticks. They say the first shell killed fifteen men there lost is very heavy." Partial Transcript: No. 10 Island Miss[ouri] April 9th 1862 Dear Brother, yours dated 30th came came [sic] to hand Sunday 6th and the Transcript and Stamp I also receive the other letter and paper. I was going to answer your last letter Sunday but I thought I would wait and give you some news. Island No 10 is ours, they surrendered Monday evening. We took four hundred prisoners, three large transport and all their cannons one floating battery fourteen guns. I didnt count the guns but I would think that there is about sixty heavy pieces ranging from 128 to 32 pounder. They are all good with the exception of five that we spike when they had possession of the Island. [2] The main land batteries are all tore up by our shell. We would have the island long ago had it not been for the river riseing so high thats all kept us back. The rebels found out that they was cut of[f] by Gen. Pope and a great many made their escape. We heard that he had taken 6,000 prisoner with out firing a shot we have all there tents, wagons and a great amount of provision they have plenty to eat with the exception of coffee and tea that's worth one dollar per pound there uniform is rather mean looking there equipment is very bad some with small rifts and others old musket with no bayonet on [3] All the prisoners taken here are all Irish they say that they were force[d] in the service and are satisfied to be taken prisoner. They didnt know what to make of maters. They said first a big smoke and next a noise like thunder and next thing the devil himself would come among them and that was worst than fighting with sticks. They say the first shell killed fifteen men there lost is very heavy our lost is twenty killed and wounded that's mostly all accident they left all there sick behind I stated 6000 that Gen Pope took 6000 prisoner he took 5,000 and all there transport [illegible] for us next come [4] Fort Pillow which commands Memphis that will be ours in a few days then N Orleans is ours this one of the greatest Victory won yet you see long range guns saves lives This account is as nigh as I kin give at present. They sunk five transport at the Island. The weather is fine and warm and the river is falling part of it wouldn't cost to much I would like to have some more of Brown Bronchel [?]lozenges if they will come with out paying freight I will pay it here I am trouble with Bronchitis yet but not very bad.

        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]
