        NEW YORK HERALD: Bound volume of 120 issues from 1 January 1862 to 30 April 1862 with much war reportage

      Hardcover. Spine rubbed. Overall a Very Good and fascinating compilation. Large folio (16" x 21-1/2") bound in half sheep and marbled boards. Includes a number of triple sheets. Extensive reportage of the war with numerous maps throughout. In addition to the war news, the papers have ads and other news. Bound in at the front is a rather scarce broadside: "The New Year's Address of the Newsmen of the New York Herald" illustrated around the border with portraits of Lincoln and various cabinet members and generals. The broadside has a few small library stamps; otherwise, it and the newspapers are generally clean with only occasional browning and a handful of long horizontal tears with no loss. While one occasionally sees individual Civil War issues of this paper offered for sale, rarely does a run, even this short (though more than 2" thick), appear on the market.

        On the Extent and Aims of a National Museum of Natural History. Inscribed to the Marquis of Ripon

      London: Saunders, Otley, 1862. Owen, Richard (1804-92). On the extent and aims of a national museum of natural history. 8vo. [4], 126pp. 2 folding plates. London: Saunders, Otley & Co., 1862. 222 x 142 mm. Original plum cloth, a little worn, inner hinges cracking. Light toning, but very good. Presentation copy, inscribed by Owen on the verso of the front free endpaper: "The Marquis of Ripon, K.G. with the Author's respects."First Edition. Owen was the prime mover behind the construction of the Natural History Museum, a project that occupied him for over two decades. After his appointment as superintendent of the Natural History department of the British Museum in 1856, dissatisfied with the cramped and disorganized confines of the existing British Museum (located in Bloomsbury), Owen began lobbying for a "separate but unified national museum of natural history . . . to represent the three kingdoms of nature" (Rupke, p. 34), to be housed in a building spacious enough to display even the largest specimens of both living and fossil species. The project did not really get off the ground until October 1861, when Owen"manipulated future Prime Minster Gladstone into the opinion that the current exhibition facilities for the Natural History Department of the British Museum were inadequate for their task. Owen cultivated Gladstone's support in order to bring the issue before Parliament once the Trustees of the British Museum fell into agreement with his extravagant plans for building not just more display space, but an entirely new building to house the natural history collection (Johnson-Roehr, "The Natural History Museum-London" [internet reference]).After much heated debate, Owen's plan was approved and the South Kensington museum, designed by Albert Waterhouse, began construction in 1873. The building was completed by late 1879, and the museum opened its doors to the public in 1881. The social and cultural impact of Owen's Natural History Museum cannot be overestimated: Bill Bryson, in his Short History of Nearly Everything (2003), has stated that "by making the Natural History Museum an institution for everyone, Owen transformed our expectations of what museums are for" (p. 81).Owen's On the Extent and Aims of a National Museum of Natural History, containing the text of his lecture delivered before the Royal Institution in April 1861, was part of his long campaign to obtain political backing for the South Kensington Museum. Owen presented this copy of the work to the George Frederick Samuel Robinson, first Marquess of Ripon, a prominent Liberal politician who held several influential posts during Gladstone's two terms as Prime Minister. The presentation was made in 1869 or afterwards, since Robinson was not made Knight of the Garter (K.G.) until that year. Wikipedia for Robinson.

        View of the entrance of the cave and stonebridge

      New York: J. Rau, 1862. Color lithograph with modern hand coloring. Image measures 9 1/2" x 13 3/4". Sheet measures 12" x 18 3/4". This rare view of Central Park shows the Ramble Arch Bridge and the entrance to a nearby cave, surrounded by lush grass and variety of trees. The scene demonstrates why, even today, the bridge is considered one of the park's most picturesque. Visitors dressed in their Sunday best are dwarfed by the rollicking landscape, which, while similar to the park's present appearance, has a particular manicured wildness that characterized Olmstead's original design. The skyline of New York City is visible in the far distance. The view appeared in Rau's 1862 "Central Park Album." It is in good condition with no chips or tears and minor overall discoloration. George Fasel was a German lithographer and painter who immigrated from Karlsruhe to New York in 1850. He was best known for his portraits, religious subjects, and historical scenes. Edward Valois was a lithographer active in New York in the mid-1850s. Their view of Central Park is a beautiful and scarce memento of the park's past.

      London, John Murray, 1862.. FIRST EDITION FIRST ISSUE 1862, Freeman's variant a, 8vo, 200 x 130 mm, 8 x 5¼ inches, 1 folding illustration and 33 woodcut illustrations in the text, pages: vi, 365, plus 32 pages of publisher's catalogue dated December 1861, original publisher's blind decorated cloth with vertical lines and corner ornaments, central gilt orchid to upper cover, gilt lettering to spine, with tiny gilt decoration at head and tail, original light brown endpapers. Expertly rebacked in matching cloth, original backstrip laid on, just showing a little new cloth at head and tail of spine and a very small piece on lower hinge, spine gilt dull, bright on upper cover, armorial bookplate of Jos. Gavit on front pastedown (Natura nihil alienit), most5 pages unopened from page 241. A very good clean tight copy of the first issue (spine relaid as noted). See Freeman, The Works of Charles Darwin page 112 and No. 800. Variant b of the first edition was in plum coloured cloth like variant a but the cloth did not have vertical lines like variant a, and the adverts in variant b may be dated as late as September 1871. This is the only Murray Darwin between 1859 and 1910 not bound in green cloth. Fertilisation of Orchids was concerned with working out in detail the relationship between sexual structures of orchids and the insects which fertilise them, their evolution being attributed to natural selection. It is therefore the first of the volumes of supporting evidence for Origin of Species. Life and Letters Volume 3 page 274 quotes Asa Gray 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 manifold are thy works"'.

      New York: Phelps & Watson, 1862. - Wall map, 47 x 43 inches, full period color. Expertly restored, backed with modern linen, trimmed in burgundy cloth, on contemporary rollers. A few creases and a bit of expected tanning. Very good. A curious wall map, being a combination of two maps drawn by G.W. Colton and published by Phelps & Watson. The depiction of Virginia is significant on this map. Issued between the time when delegates from western Virginia declared independence from the state, but before West Virginia was admitted into the Union, it shows Virginia with its full pre-Civil War boundary. It is also noteworthy that Virginia was included at all in a map of the "northeastern United States" issued during the Civil War. The upper half shows a map of the entire United States, the southern portion of Canada, Mexico, Central America, the West Indies, and the tip of Venezuela. All the territories and states of the United States are shown, and no distinction is made between Confederate and Union states. The lower half contains Colton's more detailed county map of the American northeast, with Virginia, Kentucky, and Missouri in the south, and Kansas and the Nebraska and Dakota territories in the west. The entire map is bordered in a grapevine motif with engravings of the U.S. capitol, Mount Vernon, Willamette Falls, Oregon, and the Connecticut River Valley in the corners, and four obelisk-shaped monuments in the vertical borders. It also includes a table of distances within the United States and internationally, as well as tables of "Square Miles and Population of the United States" and "Population of the Slave States for 1850 and 1860." Not in Phillips' MAPS or Wheat. RUMSEY 718.

        ("Slops" Ledger from a Whaling Ship)

      (New Bedford, MA), (1862, 1863). Octavo. (120)pp. Twenty pages of this ledger contain hand-written notes for the whaling bark Morning Star from New Bedford during an Atlantic voyage from August, 1862 to April, 1863; the remaining pages are blank. "Slops" is a naval term referring to a sailor's outfit and items of equipment, and the word eventually expanded to encompass a sailor's small cash purchases. This ledger, also known as a "slop chit," lists sailors' names followed by a tally of their purchases, which consist primarily of clothing and large amounts of tobacco: around twenty-six pounds of tobacco were purchased by individual sailors, and more than 100 pounds by the company. Articles of clothing listed include wool shirts and drawers, stockings, a monkey jacket, and straw hats. In addition to the accounts of individual crew members, the ledger also itemizes expenses for the owners' account with the captain, Hervey E. Luce, which includes food purchased for the ship, customs house fees, and postage for letters. The entries are dated between September 1862 and March 1863, during the peak years of whaling in New England. A fascinating glimpse into the provisions needed to supply a whaling ship and its crew. Fine in original marbled boards with a leather spine.

        The Mountain Spring. Near Cozzen's Dock, West Point

      New York: Currier & Ives, 1862. Hand-coloured lithograph. Very good condition apart from a few small tears in the top margin and several light water stains in the margins, one of which slightly extends into the top of the image. Slight discolouration of the paper due to age. 12 1/8 x 15 5/8 inches. 13 7/8 x 17 7/8 inches. A scenic, tranquil landscape in upstate New York with a small glimpse of the Hudson River visible through the foliage between the two rocky outcroppings bordering the dirt road. Frances Flora Bond Palmer, known as Fanny, worked for Nathaniel Currier for over than twenty-five years. She was, according to Gloria Deak, "the foremost woman lithographer of her time" (Picturing America, 647). Born and raised in England by a cultivated family, she was already an accomplished painter and lithographer when she came to America in 1844, at which time she exhibited two works at the National Academy of Design.

        War Telegram Marking Map

      Boston, 1862. No Binding. Very Good. 34 x 22 ¼ inches. Lithograph. Reinforced with rice paper, wear with some losses at folds, still very good of this kind. A very scarce and novel map, sold by subscription, enabling users to plot the progress of the Civil War in Virginia. It was sold with colored pencils to mark and update the positions of the combatants based on telegram reports appearing in newspapers. Blue was to be for the Confederacy and red for the Union, the reverse of later, customary color designations. As the publisher&#39;s note at lower left explains, the map was drawn to very large scale and not over laden with detail to make it suitable for its purpose. Railroads including spur lines are shown and identified. The nearly ebullient tone of the note bespeaks the fact it was written in the early years of the war before its full, grinding horror set in. Tracking the war on the map is pitched as a form of entertainment, and there is the blithe assumption that the war would soon be concluded in Virginia with a Union victory. Stephenson 464.7.

        Ueber die Operation der Blasen-Scheidenfisteln durch die blutige Naht mit Bemerkungen über die Heilung der Fisteln, Spalten und Defecte, welche an anderen Körpertheilen vorkommen.

      Rostock, Stiller, 1862. - 13 lithographierte Tafeln, 25 Textholzschnitte, XII, 133 S. Halblederband der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel und Rückenvergoldung (leicht berieben). Erste Ausgabe der bahnbrechenden Arbeit über eine neue Operationsmethode der Blasenscheidenfisteln, eine der größten Seltenheiten der neueren Gynäkologie. - Hirsch/H. V, 279-281 (ausführlich über Leben und Werk); Garrison/Morton 6041: "Simon is perhaps best remembered as being the first in Europe to exercise the kidney; he also wrote a fine monograph on vesico-vaginal fistula." - Gustav Simon (1824-76) promovierte 1848 in Gießen und wirkte bis 1861 als Militärarzt in Hessen. "Entscheidend für die spätere Richtung seiner chir. Thätigkeit war ein Aufenthalt in Paris 1851 bis 52, wo er durch den Besuch von Jobert's Klinik die erste Anregung zur Operation von Blasenscheidenfisteln erhielt, indem er hier wirkliche, bisher unerreichte Erfolge vor Augen sah" (Pagel 1595). In seiner Darmstädter Klinik verbesserte Simon des Jobertsche Verfahren, namentlich bei der Vervollkommnung der Naht. "Von da an mehrten sich seine glücklichen Operationen; sein Ruf als Fisteloperateur breitete sich immer mehr aus und gab ihm zu mehrfachen weiteren Publikationen über solche Operationen Anlaß" (Pagel 1596). Der Vorrede zufolge scheiterte selbst Dieffenbach, der bedeutendste deutsche Chirurg des 19. Jahrhunderts vor Simon, bei der fraglichen Operation. - Die Arbeit selbst enthält zu Beginn 12 Krankheitsfälle mit "epikritischen" Bemerkungen, gefolgt von der Beschreibung des von Simon neu entwickelten Operationsverfahrens "nebst kritischer Beleuchtung der Französischen (Jobert'schen) und Amerikanischen (Simsschen) Methode." Die lithographierten Figurentafeln mit Darstellung von Steiss-Rückenlage, Operation der eigentlichen Blasen-Scheidenfistel, Operation zur queren Obliteration der Scheide etc. - Sehr gut erhalten und sauber.

      Washington DC: US War Department, 1862-1863. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. The 216 General Orders for 1862 (January-December) are 1863 printings. The 201 General Orders and the Circular for 1863 (January 1-June 30) are first printings. The 26-page handwritten index of subjects seems to be unique to this volume. Bound in period half-morocco and marbled boards, ribbed spine, gilt lettering, with the name of Major N.S. Brinton at base of spine. [All we know of Major Brinton is that he was a US Army Paymaster. The New York Times for July 6, 1864 reports: "An act for the relief of Maj. N.S. Brinton, a Paymaster in the United States Army" without further comment.] 7.25" x 5" x 2.5" thick. General Orders No.1, January 2, 1863, is the first widely circulated version of the Emancipation Proclamation [see Eberstadt, Lincoln&#39;s Emancipation Proclamation, 12]. In addition to the first printing of General Orders No. 1 for 1863 and the second printing of General Orders No. 139 for 1862, the other 415 General Orders in this thick volume deal with enlistments, promotions, casualties, pay, supplies, military departments, courts martial, medical care, &c.

        Emancipation Proclamation: New York Tribune? Tuesday, September 23, 1862. Vol. XVIII

      Newspaper, folio, unbound, 8pp. Dampstained, browned at edges with some foxing, early owner?s ink stamp on top margin, some small tears and chips along edges, and a little creasing. Still in decent shape overall. This is one of the earliest printings of the Emancipation Proclamation, which was issued on September 22, 1862. The Emancipation Proclamation declared freedom for all slaves in any Confederate state that didn?t return to the Union by January 1, 1863. Although this executive order did not actually free a large number of slaves, it set the stage for the freedom of all slaves. Coverage of the Emancipation in this newspaper begins in the middle of the first page. This newspaper article represents important coverage of a very significant event in American History. archivesgov/exhibts/emancipation.

      Fort Donelson, Tn. Feb. 22, 1862.. Broadside, 9 3/4 x 7 inches. Chipped and torn in top margin, not affecting text. Significant tissue repairs and reinforcements on verso. Minor soiling. Good. A rare and perhaps unique broadside, marking the culmination of Gen. Ulysses Grant&#39;s successful campaign to reestablish Federal authority in Western Tennessee. Grant&#39;s victorious campaign was the turning point of Federal fortunes in the western theatre, and a bright spot in otherwise bad war news that made the commander nationally known. This broadside establishes martial law in western Tennessee, known for its Confederate sympathies, and prohibits the sale of liquor "in any quantity". Grant&#39;s Tennessee River campaign began on February 3, 1862. After a rapid and successful campaign combining gunboats and Army forces, the crucial Confederate post Fort Donelson surrendered to Grant on Feb. 16 after he famously demanded immediate unconditional surrender. A week later this broadside was printed, crudely executed on an army field press, over the signature of Grant&#39;s most trusted aide, Gen. John A. Rawlins. By the time it was issued, Federal troops threatened Nashville, which was occupied three days later. The broadside reads: "General Orders, No. 7. Extract. Tennessee by her rebellion having ignored all laws of the United States, no Courts will be allowed to act under State authority, but all cases coming within the reach of the military arm, will be adjudicated by the authorities the Government has established within the State. Martial Law is therefore declared to extend over West Tennessee. Whenever sufficient number of citizens return to their allegiance to maintain law and order over the Territory, the military restriction here judicated will be removed." This survival of the first significant Union victory in the War is apparently unrecorded. Not located in Allen, Webb, Sabin, Nevins, or OCLC. Of great significance and importance.

White, thirty-two drawn on stone by William E. Hitchcock). Original tan publisher&#39;s cloth; rebacked with original spine laid down. Corners rubbed. Modern bookplates on front pastedown. Minor scattered foxing. Very good. Cassin&#39;s additions to Audubon: an important American color plate and ornithological work. Cassin intended his work to supplement that of Audubon. He had originally suggested to Audubon&#39;s sons a plan for extending the octavo edition of Audubon&#39;s THE BIRDS OF AMERICA, but difficulty concerning credit on the titlepage sank the scheme, and Cassin proceeded with his own publication. Cassin used the same lithographer as the Audubons, J.T. Bowen of Philadelphia, to produce the beautiful plates of American birds, consisting entirely of western species that Audubon had never observed. Cassin was a trained scientist as well as careful artist and observer, and his work took American ornithology to a new level of technical competence, becoming the first American bird book to use trinomial nomenclature. The present copy is the second edition, after the first of 1853-56, with the same content. ANKER 92. ZIMMER, p.124. LADA-MOCARSKI 144. COWAN, p.110. NISSEN BIRDS 173. FINE BIRD BOOKS 64.

      Chicago: Church, Goodman & Cushing, 1862. First Edition. Hardcover. A Good copy of a scarce book. Engravings. Quarto bound in the publisher&#39;s brown cloth; 200 pages. Howes 468; New Howes 465 "b". A scarce Ante-Fire Imprint with chapters on numerous industries including bookbinding, dentistry, billiard table manufacturing, comedy, coffee, furs, beer, railroads, whips, and many others. With eight full-page plates and a number of text engravings. The two tinted lithographs are lacking from this copy. The double-page frontispiece compares a drawing of Chicago in 1820 to a bird&#39;s-eye view of the city in 1862. Included in the pagination are four advertisements for railroads at the end. The paper is brittle with some leaves partly detached and a few completely detached, which seems often to be the case with this title. The edges of the original binding are lightly worn with the spine tips chipped. A two-inch split occurs at the top of the front cover where it meets the spine resulting in some looseness to the cover.

Titled and ruled in gilt. Marbled endpapers. Internally clean and bright. A clean and handsome copy in an attractive contemporary binding. A splendid copy of Collins&#39;second novel and his first depicted in a contemporary setting. Often credited with being the beginning of the &#39;Sensational&#39; novel Basil is a barrage of jealousy, regret, death, vengeance and violence; a formula which proved to be something of a winner. Now chiefly remebered for The Moonstone and Woman in White, Collins was a hugely successful novelist in the Victorian period and as much of a household name as Dickens. Plagued by rheumatic pain for most of his life and heavily dependant upon laudanum he is one of the few people to have been frequently accompanied by a (rather judgemental) hallucination of himself.
