        The City of the Saints, and Across the Rocky Mountains to California

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1862. 8vo. x, 574 pp. Folding plate with 3 engraved maps, folding street plan of Salt Lake City, 8 wood-engraved plates, including frontispiece, and 9 text illustrations. 2-page publisher's catalogue at end. Publisher's blind-stamped brown cloth, spine lettered in gold (extremities and joints worn, spine stained and faded, head and tail chipped, corners bumped). First American edition of the great explorer's entertaining and carefully crafted narrative of his voyage across the United States to Salt Lake City and thence to California, in the late summer and early fall of 1860. Burton's extensive linguistic skills and knowledge of African and Middle Eastern cultures furthered his innately acute powers of observation, and fed his proclivity to incorporate wide-ranging comparisons into his finely honed descriptions of the people and places encountered on his journey. During the three weeks spent in Salt Lake City, Burton became acquainted with the Mormon way of life and with the "Prophet" Brigham Young, whom he describes in great detail, remarking notably that he "has been so long used to power that he cares nothing for its display". Burton's indulgent view of Mormon polygamy, founded on his exposure to African cultures in which wives were numbered in the hundreds, earned him the reprobation of contemporary reviewers. They could not deny, however, that his account was the product of wide-ranging scholarship and an insatiably curious mind, as testified not least by the 11-page footnote (pp. 203-15) containing an extensive bibliography of works on the Mormons, complete with Burton's comments on the books and on their public reception, and including titles in French, German, Italian, Danish and Welsh. The five appendices include a detailed itinerary of his route, transcriptions of various Mormon documents, and a chronological abstract of Mormon history. Cowan (II), p. 87; Flake Mormon Bibliography, 1029; Graff 512; Howes B1033; cf. Sabin 9497; Wagner-Camp 370.2. Wheat; Transmississippi, V, p. 23.

        The Lord Mayor of London

      sp;- London - Chapman and Hall, 1862 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. 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.

        Fathers and Sons

      New York: Leypoldt and Holt. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH of Turgenev's masterpiece, one of the most celebrated and influential Russian novels of the nineteenth century. "Turgenev's greatest novel, Fathers and Sons (1862)... succeeded in illustrating, with remarkable balance and profundity, the issues that divided the generations. The hero, Bazarov, is the most powerful of Turgenev's creations. A nihilist, denying all laws save those of the natural sciences, uncouth and forthright in his opinions, he is nonetheless susceptible to love and by that token doomed to unhappiness. In sociopolitical terms he represents the victory of the nongentry revolutionary intelligentsia over the gentry intelligentsia to which Turgenev belonged. In artistic terms he is a triumphant example of objective portraiture, and in the poignancy of his death he approaches tragic stature. The miracle of the novel as a whole is Turgenev's superb mastery of his theme, despite his personal hostility toward Bazarov's antiaestheticism, and his success in endowing all the characters with a quality of spontaneous life" (Britannica). Translated by Eugene Schuyler. New York: Leypoldt and Holt, 1867. 12mo, original gilt-stamped cloth. Discreet contemporary (dated 1867) owner signature and a later bookplate on front pastedown. Very slight wear to cloth, small ink stain to bottom of text block with slight bleed onto a few leaves. An exceptionally nice copy, very rare in this condition.

        ORLEY FARM

      1862. With Illustrations by J. E. Millais. In Two Volumes. London: Chapman and Hall, 1862. Original blind-stamped purple cloth with gilt-decorated spines. First Edition in book form (the two volumes were issued nine months apart during serialization of the twenty monthly parts). Included are forty full-page plates by Millais. "While it is primarily a tragedy of misdirected maternal love, the book contains much of the best Trollopian humor, and includes the portrait of his finest gentleman, Sir Peregrine Orme" [Gerould]. In his autobiography Trollope later noted, ~The plot... is probably the best I have ever made; but it has the fault of declaring itself, and thus coming to an end too early in the book... I do not know that there is a dull page in the book.~As described in detail by Sadleir, there are four issues of the first edition, and since the two volumes were published separately, their issue points are generally independent of each other. The first issue consisted solely of volumes bound up from the serial parts, with stab-holes evident; subsequent issue points are very minor, primarily reflecting the changing printer's imprint on the title verso and the change in several plates' underlines. In this set, Vol I is generally third issue (with the "Clowes H" imprint on the title verso, and the cloth grain running horizontally), while Vol II is a mix between third and fourth issue (with the fourth issue's "Clowes H" on the title verso, but with the third issue's vertical cloth grain).~Condition is near-fine, with very little wear other than very light rubbing at the extremities (one small droplet-mark on a front cover, Vol I endpapers cracking, occasional light foxing); atypically, the spines of this set are not particularly faded. Though not a scarce Trollope title, copies in this condition are becoming scarce. Sadleir (Trollope) 13. Housed in a fleece-lined clamshell case with leather label.

        ARCHIVE Of SHUMAN FAMILY LETTER CORRESPONDENCE, August 1862 - September 1866

      Divers locations:. 1862 - 1866.. 34 autograph letters Ð 34 sheets/105.5 pp. - most with envelopes, to and from John and his family. 24 letters from John to family; 2 letters to John; 6 letters to/from Barney Shuman, JohnÕs father; and 2 letters from an Eliza Watson to Jacob Stroman (Shuman? JohnÕs brother). A complete listing of the letters in the archive, with snippets of each, available on request.. Slight water damping to first letter, though with minimal ink. blurring. Overall condition - Very Good or better.. John Shuman was a young man of 23 or so in August 1862 when he volunteered for service with the 88th Regiment, Indiana Volunteers to fight for the Union in the American Civil War. As these letters testify, he felt good about his decision, and as most men did at that time, believed that the war would be short-lived. As we know, the war lasted longer than John expected, but this Union soldier would not see the end. John fell victim to the #1 cause of death during the American Civil War Ð not gunshot, or cannon ball; neither shrapnel or saber. John died of chronic diarrhea/dysentery on August 14, 1863, in the camp hospital at Decherd Station, Tennessee. John Shuman is buried in the Stones River Battlefield National Cemetery, site 2213, with other Union dead. & & The letters John & his family left behind are descriptive of camp life, and in particular, the various illnesses that plagued both armies...& & Dec 10. '62: "... we had a hard fight the other day but our company came out safe they was seventeen wonted [sic - wounded] out of our regiment and 2 kill[ed]... Mar 30, '63: "... let you know I had all my money taken the other night ... every cent I had I laid in my bed .. and it was taken out from under my head ..." & & Apr 25, '63: "I am not very well jus not for I had the ague yesterday but I am taking quinine to day to stop it." & & May 21, '63: " ... we drawed our money the other day I drawed seventy dolars [sic] .."& & Jul 28, '63. John's last letter home. "I am not very well for now I have got direah very bad I am in the hospital now..." John dies a little over 2 weeks later. & & A wonderful mss snapshot of a civil war soldier's experiences, including the very unsanitary circumstances of camp life. NB. There was some question as to the proper spelling of JohnÕs last name. In reading the handwriting, it appeared to us as Shuman. The census records have the family name as Shurman, and there are, and were, many Shurmans in Wolcottvile, Indiana, where John and his family lived. While the office responsible for removing the soldiersÕ remains from Decherd Station, Tennessee to the cemetery in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, gives his name as Shuman, the grave marker and index to the cemetery lists him as John Sherman. In History Eighty-Eights Indiana Volunteers Infantry, published in 1895, John is listed as John Shewman. In cataloging these letters, we decided on Shuman.

        Les Miserables (in 5 volumes)

      New York: Carleton, Publisher, 1862. First American edition. Very Good + to Near Fine. An attractive set of Hugo's masterpiece and the first English language translation. All volumes Very Good + to Near Fine in original purple-brown cloth with the spines uniformly faded. Three of the spines with slight fraying and loss, but no restoration or repairs. Internal contents tight and relatively clean with mild sporadic foxing. The same owner's name written on each paste-down and title page. A set that is found commonly enough when worn or heavily restored, but quite unusual collected early and in this state of preservation. & & Translated by Charles Wilbour immediately upon the release of the French edition, the first book was released in June of 1862 with monthly parts coming out through October. The first British edition, by contrast was released in three volumes all in October of 1862 (translated by Lascelles Wraxall). & & Widely regarded as one of the greatest novels of the 19th century, although contemporary reviews were mixed. Hugo's massive work follows the struggles of ex-convict, Jean Valjean, as he seeks spiritual redemption, despite the past ever following upon his heels. It is a social commentary not just on modern France, but upon all communities where there is crime, hunger, poverty and injustice. Moreover, Hugo inserts his own commentaries throughout the work, whether they relate to the current action or not. Successfully adapted to the screen and the stage, most recently by Tom Hooper in 2012 for Universal Pictures. A work that speaks across time and place and continues to touch and inspire its readers. Very Good + to Near Fine.

        Journal of Landsborough's Expedition from Carpentaria

      Melbourne,: Wilson and Mackinnon, 1862.. Octavo, with a lithographic portrait frontispiece and large folding map measuring 656 x 794 mm. (expertly repaired and laid down); a very good copy in handsome half crushed morocco by Sangorski with gilt lettering and raised bands. The first public printing of Landsborough's journals from the Burke and Wills relief expedition, featuring a splendid large map of the Australian continent marked with the routes of all major inland exploration attempts.Although Landsborough was not successful in locating traces of the forlorn Burke and Wills expedition, he had a keen eye for good pastoral land. Indeed, prior to the formation of the Queensland relief expedition in 1861, Landsborough had been professionally employed in exploring and surveying the remote interior for private grazing interests. This training is reflected in his journal, and 'Landsborough's discovery of good pastoral land on his more extensive expeditions created greater contemporary interest and his journals were quickly made available to the public' (Australian Rare Books p.241).When Landsborough fell out with Frederick Walker, leader of the other Queensland relief expedition (and by many accounts a thoroughly unsavoury character), he proceeded south from the Gulf of Carpentaria to Cooper's Creek. Accordingly, his journal records much of the territory encountered by Burke and Wills on their tragic journey northward.Australian Rare Books, 174a; Ferguson, 11329.

        De l'existence d'un nouveau métal, le Thallium

      Lille, L. Danel, 1862. 8vo. 42 pp., one full colour plate. Original printed wrappers.* The original publication, with a signed dedication by the author on the front wrapper, of the discovery of Thallium being a metal. Claude Auguste Lamy (1820-1876) discovered the element while observing pyrite but soon found out that William Crookes had identified the new element too and generously - perhaps erroneously - gave Crookes the honour. However, Crookes' research was less thorough and he believed Thallium to be related to the group of elements that includes sulphur, whereas Lamy who did not only detected the element but also isolated larger quantities was the first to show that it was a metal from the lead group and in fact a bit heavier than lead. His discovery was published in the Annales de Chimie et de Physique, third series, volume 67, but this is the perhaps earlier, separately published account. The last two pages contain the proceedings of the Société impériale des Sciences, de l'Agriculture et des Arts, de Lille, recording the meeting of 16 May 1862 in which Lamy announced his results and showed about 1.5 grams of the new element. Thallium became widely used as a rat-poison, being very toxic (one cannot resist thinking that Lamy's early death is somehow related to his working with Thallium), but is now mostly used in electronics and optics. The plate shows the spectra in which the characteristic green line is indicated after which the element was named. Uncut copy. Some marginal fraying, old printed library label pasted on the title page, otherwise a very good clean copy. Very rare.

        Robert O'Hara Burke and the Exploring Expedition of 1860

      London,: Smith, Elder, and Co.,, 1862.. Octavo, with title-page vignette, a folding map and 16 pp. advertisements at rear; some foxing particularly to map which has a tear along one of the folds, extremities rubbed, but a fine copy in the original green cloth. An important record of the ill-fated Burke and Wills expedition. This is the only edition of the one substantial contemporary publication of Burke's own journals.Australian history views the explorers in a different light: as part of a long tradition of celebrating noble failure, Burke and Wills have become national heroes.The work also includes Brahe's journal, Howitt's diary and the Report of the Royal Commission, and thus provides a complete overview of the entire expedition and its aftermath. Jackson, who knew Burke, was an officer in the same regiment as his father, and published this account in memory of Burke and dedicated it to Burke's sister Hester 'whose name was the last utterance from the lips of her loved and gallant brother'.Maria, 98; Wantrup, 173.

        NORTH AMERICA

      1862. In Two Volumes. London: Chapman & Hall, 1862. 32 pp Vol I ads dated October 1861. Original blind-stamped rose-maroon cloth. First Edition of Trollope's account of his 1861 trip to the land where his mother and younger siblings had briefly lived (in Cincinnati, 1827-1831). This work is not only a geographical description of North America; Trollope also gets into such questions as "Deficiencies in the Post Office System" (Trollope had been a post office civil servant), "Amount of the Debt - Can the Burden be Borne?" and "Rights of Women" -- topics no less timely now. Given the year, Trollope also discusses the Civil War then raging ("The Causes of the War"). Trollope's wife Rose accompanied him on most of this trip, acting as his amanuensis; it is said that the book's spontaneity declines at the point she left for London -- reflecting how much harder it was for him to write out his thoughts rather than to dictate them freely.~This title page in each volume bears the circular ink-stamp "FROM THE PUBLISHERS". The set is in very good condition (the spines are faded to a light brown as usual with rose-maroon cloth, there is a faint corner crease and slight wear at the spine ends, and some of the endpapers exhibit some cracking). An uncommon Trollope edition. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 14.

I have not allowed the division among the States and the breaking out of the civil war to interfere with my intention; but I should not have purposely have chosen this period either for my book or for my visit. 'An extensive writing on North America with twenty chapters to first volume and sixteen to second and with three appendices to rear to volume two. Chapters on different areas and on topics such as Education and Religion, Congress, The American Civil War, Law, The Financial Position, Hotels and Literature. Anthony Trollope (1815 - 1882) was one of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. Some of his best-loved works, collectively known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire, revolve around the imaginary county of Barsetshire. He also wrote perceptive novels on political, social, and gender issues, and on other topical matters. Condition: In cloth bindings. Externally, sound but with some wear to extremities, rubbing and marks to boards and fading to spines with anink inscription to onespine.

        A RECORD OF OBSERVATIONS IN THE OPEN PORT OF YOKOHAMA [translated from the Japanese]

      [Japan. ca. 1862-1865].. [10]pp. of text in Japanese characters, plus twenty-nine uncolored woodblock illustrations and one colored woodblock illustration. Original blindstamped grey wrappers, stitched. Wrappers rubbed and edgeworn, early ownership signature on rear wrapper. Very clean and fresh internally. Very good. In a blue half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. A rare series of illustrations depicting the lives of Americans and other westerners in the Japanese port city of Yokohama. This is one volume of a multi-volume work featuring the illustrations of the noted Japanese woodblock artist, Hashimoto Sadahide. The work is known under the Anglicized title, A RECORD OF OBSERVATIONS IN THE OPEN PORT OF YOKOHAMA, and it demonstrates very well the Japanese fascination with westerners in the wake of Admiral Perry's visit a decade earlier. One of the concessions Perry wrung from the Japanese was the opening of some of their ports to foreign trade. Yokohama, formerly a quiet fishing village, quickly grew when the port of Yokohama opened in 1859. A large number of foreigners moved there to man trading houses, and foreign naval vessels became a regular sight. This volume in Sadahide's series on Yokohama contains a number of images of foreigners at work and in their homes. It includes portraits of western men and women, as well as illustrations of men at work and women performing household chores. Other illustrations show westerners riding in carriages or on swings, and one shows a man balancing on a tightrope with a child riding on his back. A number of the men appear to be sailors or naval officers. Four of the illustrations show an American military parade, and the colored woodblock shows a number of flags, including the American, French, and British flags as well as the Japanese rising sun.

        NORTH AMERICA

      1862. In Two Volumes. London: Chapman & Hall, 1862. 32 pp Vol I ads dated October 1861. Original blind-stamped rose-maroon cloth. First Edition of Trollope's account of his 1861 trip to the land where his mother and younger siblings had briefly lived (in Cincinnati, 1827-1831). This work is not only a geographical description of North America; Trollope also gets into such questions as "Deficiencies in the Post Office System" (Trollope had been a post office civil servant), "Amount of the Debt - Can the Burden be Borne?" and "Rights of Women" -- topics no less timely now. Given the year, Trollope also discusses the Civil War then raging ("The Causes of the War"). Trollope's wife Rose accompanied him on most of this trip, acting as his amanuensis; it is said that the book's spontaneity declines at the point she left for London -- reflecting how much harder it was for him to write out his thoughts rather than to dictate them freely.~This set is in very good-plus condition (the spines are faded to a light brown, as usual with rose-maroon cloth, but there is very little external wear; also the original Vol I endpapers show some cracking). An uncommon Trollope edition. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 14.
