        OATH OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT [caption title].

      [Jefferson City, Mo.? 1862]. - Broadsheet, approximately 8 x 10 1/4 inches. Previously folded, with some small separations and tears, with one larger repaired 2 1/2 tear. Small closed marginal tear at lower left corner Moderate patch of dampstaining at central upper edge. Good plus. An apparently unrecorded form, printing an oath of allegiance to the United States government and the provisional government of Missouri early in the Civil War. The pro-Union state government was established when northern forces took Jefferson City in 1861 and the Confederate government established by Claiborne Fox Jackson was put to flight. Nevertheless, the shadow government continued to operate and the national Confederate government at Richmond counted Missouri as one of its constituent states; moreover, there was much conflict between pro-Union and Confederate Missourians throughout the course of the war. The document, the present copy of which in uncompleted, states in part that the signer will: "Solemnly swear that I will support, protect and defend the Constitution and Government of the United States, and the Provisional Government of the State of Missouri, against all enemies, wether [sic] foreign or domestic. And I take this oath without any mental reservation or evasion whatsoever, with a full and clear understanding, that death or punishment by the judgment of a Military Commission, will be the penalty for the violation of this, my solemn oath." An evocative piece of ephemera from Missouri's Civil War history. Not in OCLC.

        1861-2. Victoria. Burke and Wills Commission. Report of the Commissioners appointed to enquire into and report upon the circumstances connected with The Sufferings and Death of Robert O'Hara Burke and William John Wills, the Victorian Explorers. Presented to Both Houses of Parliament by His Excellency's Command

      John Ferres, Government Printer, Melbourne 1862 - Foolscap folio, 104 pp., printed on light blue paper, edges uncut; half calf. Official report of the Royal Commission appointed to investigate the Burke and Wills disaster: 'now very scarce and of high interest' (Australian Rare Books).When news of the tragedy reached Melbourne, public interest in the affair reached near hysterical proportions, and a Royal Commission had been set up even before King returned to Melbourne. The commissioners apportioned blame for the debacle three ways: the expedition's over-enthusiastic (some would say incompetent) leader Robert O'Hara Burke; the careless overseer William Wright; and the indecisive Exploration Committee of the Royal Society of Victoria. Although it concluded that Wright appeared 'to have been reprehensible in the highest degree', Burke was also chastised for displaying 'a far greater amount of zeal than prudence?overtaxing the powers of his party', and also for his failure to keep a regular journal.The appendices of this report, totalling some 28 pages, are of great historical interest as they print Burke's instructions from the Exploration Committee, numerous despatches from Wright and Burke, a good part of the journals of Wright and Wills, the narrative of John King, and William Brahe's report of June 1861. Title-page a little stained, otherwise a good uncut example. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Trigonometrical Survey of a part of Mesopotamia. From Hillah to the Ruins of Niffer with the rivers Euphrates and Tigris.

      London, J. & C. Walker, 1862. - 101 x 71 cm. Constant ratio linear horizontal scale, ca. 1:150,000. Signed by Collingwood. Impressive, early, large-scale map of central Iraq, showing the area between Al Hillah (100 km south of Baghdad) to the ruins of the ancient Sumerian city of Nippur. Indicates sand hills, canals, old river beds, tracks, cultivated areas. Includes inset plans and views of Tel Ibrahim, Zibbleyeh, Nejmi, Niffer, and the Niffer Mounds. - Some paper defects and edge damage restored. Rare; copies are known in no more than two public collections (Bodleian; British Library). Personal copy of the cartographer William Collingwood, signed by himself as well as by Cdr. W. B. Selby, R.I.N. - Selby began his distinguished surveying career in 1837 when, as a midshipman, he embarked on the expedition first to lay navigation buoys in the mouths of the Indus River and then to chart some coastal areas in the Horn of Africa. By 1846 he was back working off the mouth of the Indus, having made his reputation in Mesopotamia (in 1840-41), and thereafter achieved considerable acclaim for his numerous other surveys, including those during the military expedition to Persia in 1856, before returning to England at the end of 1862. He was succeeded as Surveyor of Mesopotamia by his protégé, Lt. William Collingwood (a distant cousin of the Admiral), who had already done much valuable work in the region, including the large-scale, though surreptitious, mapping of Baghdad in 1855, described by him as follows: "The survey of the city of Baghdad was completed entirely by myself and under very unpleasant restrictions [.] The Turkish Government were not to know anything about it [.] and I was left to survey the town as best I could, and under such difficulties that at times I had to note bearings and paces all over my white shirt, where best I could get the pencil at the time [.]". During this same expedition, Collingwood also surveyed the Shatt-ul-Arab, the city of Bussorah (also by stealth) and much of the country between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, and he was undoubtedly one of the most gifted and productive R.I.N. surveyors of his day.

        Autograph Letter Signed.

      This Union soldier with Company G of the 101st Regiment of Indiana Volunteers was mustered in August 1862 as a private and mustered out as a sergeant in July 1865; in later years he served as a Wells County, Indiana school superintendent and circuit court clerk. Good content ALS, 3pp (lettersheet), 8" X 10", Chicago, IL, 3 June 1863. Addressed to Lucas F. Smith (1844-1924). Very good. Single lengthy tear near letterhead gutter neatly, archivally closed, thus discreet and inoffensive. Writing from Camp Douglas, the controversial POW camp known as "The North's Andersonville" because of the harsh weather conditions and higher-than-average mortality rate (17%). "It is not necessary for me to Give you my political opinion from the fact I agree with you to a demonstration. What Gets me is to see these Processions headed with Negroes or Negroes connected with them at all. Why if I was Going to be buried I would rather a dog to piss on me than have a set at Negroes following me around. oh is it not ridiculous And I do firmly believe the Negroes will soon have a vote. they have voted already in Ohio of cours there is a great many deny it but those very d___n cusses who deny it are in favor of it. And there is boys in my Co. here who were home at the Presidential Election in Ohio And saw them vote. you thought it very hard for a white man to humble himself with a Negro. It is very true it is hard for a man, but there is a set of beings on things that the Negro is to Good for them. unless I alter my opin[ion] I will never help bury an Ab[olitionis]t unless it would be to keep the Hogs from eating them...." As for Camp Douglas, Ormsby notes: "you see from the heading of my letter that I am with the Provost Guard I do not have but very little to do I make the detail and that is about all... We live pretty well here...." By this time the semi-notorious POW camp had passed its heyday, had then been used as temporary housing for parolees awaiting exchange and sat largely empty, housing as few as fifty Confederate prisoners. Most interesting perhaps are Ormsby's comments about "the fair," which although unnamed might be the very first "Sanitary Fair" organized by Mary Livermore and Jane Hoge as a fund-raiser for the newly-created Unites States Sanitary Commission created by women of the North to support Union soldiers. Notes one source, "The Chicago Sanitary Fair opened on October 27, 1863. People paid seventy-five cents to come to see all the exhibits and have a meal. Prominent women in Chicago served as hostesses for the meals. Exhibits were on display in halls. One hall had Confederate flags and war relics. Another hall had an art gallery. Another hall had farm equipment. Other halls had things for sale that had been donated. Pianos, toys, clothes, and food were just a few of the things for sale. President Lincoln gave a handwritten copy of his Emancipation Proclamation. It sold for $3,000!" This fair was also known as the "Northwestern Sanitary Fair," and other contemporary sources cite the opening as the end of May. Ormsby writes in June that "the fair is Going on here now and we are haveing quite a lively time. There is any amount of Girls comes to see me every day. the Guards I have hired are Guarding the fair Building and at Night there is no person in but my Guards and I tell you the ice cream cake and Pie and so on has to suffer...." He chats a bit about friends in his old regiment and tells Smith to "Please write soon" and direct letters to him at "Co. B, 8th Regiment V.R.C. / Camp Douglas / Chicago / Ill." The original envelope is present and Ormsby addresses it to his friend Smith at "Co. G, 101st Ind Vol / 2nd Brig. 3rd Div 14th A.C." in Washington, DC. Legibly penned in brown ink on lightly lined stock, this superb letter bears interesting original content on race relations of the day, on Camp Douglas and on the first Sanitary Fair in the country. Smith was an Indiana printer with the "Bluffton Banner" newspaper, but after the war became a well-known attorney in Texas and a civil servant who rose up to the Texas supreme court, later moving to northern California to practice law.

        Life and Confession of William Roupell, the Convict Forger and Perjurer. Written by himself.

      In Horsemonger-Lane Gaol, Surrey... Never before published. [London] : s.n. 2 & 3, Shoe Lane, Fleet Street; printed by J. Samuels, 6 Red Lion Court, Fleet Street, n.d. [1862?]. Chapbook, 185 x 130 mm, unstitched, 16 pp, original horizontal and vertical folds, a small perforation at their intersection which affects all pages but not the legibility of the text, the first page with moderate foxing, more pronounced along the vertical fold, scattered foxing to the first few inside pages but overall the contents are clean and fresh. The story of William Rouppel's fall from grace is a remarkable one. This account, although almost certainly not penned by Roupell himself, includes and embellishes upon most of the facts which surfaced at his trial in 1862. Brought up in a wealthy aristocratic London family, he was aware from an early age that he was illegitimate, and that he would inherit nothing through his father's will. Desperate to lead the lifestyle of a fashionable young man about town, Roupell turned to his considerable talent for forgery, using it against his own family and defrauding them - without their knowledge - of an estimated £100,000 by the late 1850s. When his father died in 1856, Roupell even forged a new will which left the entire estate to his sympathetic mother, from whom he received regular financial support. He was elected as a Member of Parliament for Lambeth, but soon afterwards was forced to flee to Spain due to the fact that he could not continue to cover the mortgage repayments on a string of fraudulently acquired properties. Returning to England in 1862, he pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to numerous charges of fraud and forgery, and was sentenced to transportation to Gibraltar for life. However, he ultimately spent his servitude in England, being released in 1876. A single copy of this ephemeral publication of Roupell's confessions is recorded in Australian collections (National Library of Australia).

        1861-2. Victoria. Burke and Wills Commission. Report of the Commissioners appointed to enquire into and report upon the circumstances connected with The Sufferings and Death of Robert O'Hara Burke and William John Wills, the Victorian Explorers. Presented to Both Houses of Parliament by His Excellency's Command.

      Melbourne: John Ferres, Government Printer, 1862. Foolscap folio, 104 pp., printed on light blue paper, edges uncut; half calf. Official report of the Royal Commission appointed to investigate the Burke and Wills disaster: 'now very scarce and of high interest' (Australian Rare Books).When news of the tragedy reached Melbourne, public interest in the affair reached near hysterical proportions, and a Royal Commission had been set up even before King returned to Melbourne. The commissioners apportioned blame for the debacle three ways: the expedition's over-enthusiastic (some would say incompetent) leader Robert O'Hara Burke; the careless overseer William Wright; and the indecisive Exploration Committee of the Royal Society of Victoria. Although it concluded that Wright appeared 'to have been reprehensible in the highest degree', Burke was also chastised for displaying 'a far greater amount of zeal than prudence...overtaxing the powers of his party', and also for his failure to keep a regular journal.The appendices of this report, totalling some 28 pages, are of great historical interest as they print Burke's instructions from the Exploration Committee, numerous despatches from Wright and Burke, a good part of the journals of Wright and Wills, the narrative of John King, and William Brahe's report of June 1861. Title-page a little stained, otherwise a good uncut example.

        Rare large broadside of a North Carolina unionist promoting peace between North and South immediately following Lincoln's announcement of the Emancipation Proclamation

      [Raleigh, North Carolina?], September 24, 1862. 13.25" x 20". "Broadside, Brower's Mills, N.C. Sept. 24th, 1862. Mr____ Dear Sir:-- I hereby send you a book, which I hope you will carefully read and consider well the object for which i is written... ([Raleigh?: 1862]), 13.25"" x 20"", type in three ruled columns, signed ""BRYAN TYSON"" in type. Light dampstains at top left, light scattered foxing, else very good. A circular letter issued by Bryan Tyson, a Unionist North Carolina slaveholder and manufacturer of farm implements who waged a one-man war against what he considered equivalent evils: abolition and secession. In the summer of 1862, he published his views in a clandestinely printed volume, Ray of Light: a vicious attack on Abolitionists in the North and on the secessionist leadership of the Confederacy, urging an end to the war and an immediate return to the Union to avoid inevitable defeat. Confederate authorities immediately suppressed the work as it reflected the views of many in North Carolina's Piedmont who opposed secession. In mid-September, Tyson was arrested and marched off to Raleigh as a conscript--saved from the army only through the intercession of some influential friends. Very soon after his release, an unrepentant Tyson published the present broadside to promote his suppressed book. Printed in three columns, Tyson urges re-entry into the Union, ""provided we can get our rights, as the surest and best mode of putting a stop to this cruel war."" The best course of action, according to Tyson, was to ""get an Armistice of some two or three months, and if possible depose Lincoln, and let an election for a new President take place."" In addition to Lincoln's removal, the abolition sentiment must be ""expunged from the Northern people . . . But in case they are for abolishing slavery; I think it perfectly inconsistent that they should desire a farther Union."" He argues that should the South ""drive the enemy completely from our shores; we then reach the Blockade,"" and that is something they have not been able to effectively break in seventeen months. ""I therefore think we had best take the bull by the horns at once, and advocate the Union upon just and honorable terms while there is . . . some hope of getting our rights."" But another matter has come up: ""Since writing the above Lincoln has issued his proclamation emancipating the slaves of all States that shall be in rebellion against the United States on the first day of January, 1863. This makes the prospect for Union more gloomy than ever . . . But I still think it was an act resorted to more for the purpose of putting down the rebellion, than as a special benefit to the African race. Therefore, if we will strike for compromise upon terms already mentioned, I think this thing can be knocked up, and the Union yet saved upon just and honorable terms."" For this, the State of North Carolina arrested Tyson again, and Governor Vance only agreed to release him if he would cease promoting his inflammatory views. He joined the Unionist underground, writing letters to Confederate soldiers urging them to desert, and in the winter of 1863, he sent a copy of Ray of Light to each member of the North Carolina assembly. Tyson was soon forced to flee to the Union lines and moved to Washington, where he was rewarded with a job in the Treasury. When his recommendations to support North Carolina Unionists fell on deaf ears in the Lincoln Administration, Tyson began working for McClellan's election and helping foment rebellion against the Confederate government in his native state.

        Orley Farm

      Chapman and Hall 1862 - Quarter bound in two volumes from the original parts (original binding holes visible), publisher's advertisements & half titles removed. Matching marbled boards & endpapers, gilt decoration to boards & spines (four raised bands). Although there is obvious edge wear, internal condition is very good indeed. The paper on which the illustrated plates were printed is more absorbent than the printed pages, hence tends to suffer more from foxing, damp marking etc. (a common problem with Dickens & Trollope works of this era) but this copy of the work has illustrations that are very clean indeed. One of the full page illustrations in volume 2 has been accidentally bound in upside down but is as clean as the others etc. This copy is not entirely free of foxing/spotting but it is very light indeed. There is a slight bow to the boards (front to back) but not too serious. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Orley Farm . . . With illustrations by J. E. Millais

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1862. First Edition. Half-Calf. Near Fine+. Complete in two octavo volume: viii,320; viii,320pp, with 40 full-page wood-engraved plates that Trollope considered the "best he had seen 'in any novel in any language.'" (Ray) Contemporary green polished half-calf spines in six compartments divided by double gilt rules, marble paper-covered boards, red morocco lettering pieces gilt, edges speckled red. Short tear (repaired) to plate opposite p. 49, vol. I. Ink manuscript name and date (1863) to fly leaf of voI II, with same inscription upside down to back fly leaf of vol. I, as well as a further ink name and date (1890) inscribed to front blank. A truly excellent set, bindings square, tight, and barely worn; pages clean, fresh and mostly free of foxing; plates in deep, rich impressions. Sadleir Trollope 13. NCBEL III, 882. Ray England 168. Trollope considered this lengthy book, a version of the crime, or "sensation," novel in vogue during the 1860s, one of his most ambitious undertakings and possibly his finest work. It is also among the most bibliographically complex. Unusually, the two volumes were not published simultaneously but nearly ten months apart, and subsequent reissues of each volume did not proceed in step. In consequence, Sadleir proposes that the "numerous combinations of varying volumes which exist are due, not always to careless mixing of sets between 1862 and the present day, but often to circumstances of publication." Orley farm originally appeared in twenty shilling parts, published monthly from March 1861 to October 1862. Our set is the second issue of four, identified by the two illustrations originally bound in tandem between pp. 86-87 (first issue) in vol. I, one of which (that captioned "And then they all marched . . .") has been moved to face p. 73 (though the List of Illustrations was not altered to correspond). But the printer's imprint on verso of title page, vol. I, has not yet changed to Clowes H and the imprint on p. 320 (Clowes B) is not worn and broken, both third issue points. Correspondingly, in vol. II, the printer's imprint on verso of title page does not lack the colon after "London" and the last item of the List of Illustrations has not been altered to read "Sir Peregrine Orme's Great Love—p. 311" (both third issue points). "Millais's main effort is to do justice to the characters of Trollope's wonderfully rich and varied novel and to the situations in which they find themselves, yet the comfort, even elegance, of Victorian existence on the right side of the social line is nowhere more attractively presented than in his forty drawing for this novel."

        On the Various Contrivances by Which British and Foreign Orchids are Fertilised by Insects, and On the Good Effects of Intercrossing

      London: John Murray, 1862. First Printing. Three-Quarter Calf. Fine. First edition. 8vo: vi,365,[1]pp, with one folding plate and 33 woodcuts in text. Rebound in three-quarter chocolate-brown calf over marbled boards, flat spine in five compartments divided by double gilt fillets, compartments two and four lettered in gilt, end papers renewed, lacking publisher's advertisements at rear. A Fine copy, virtually pristine, fresh, bright and unmarked. Freeman 800. According to Asa Gray, the most important American botanist of the 19th century, "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 he 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.'" Darwin himself wrote to John Murray on September 24th, 1861, "I think this little volume will do good to the "Origin", as it will show that I have worked hard at details." Orchids "was concerned with working out in detail the relationships 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. It was much praised by botanists, but sold only about 6,000 copies before the turn of the century. . . . I have not seen any figure for the number of copies printed [for the first edition], although it cannot have been more than 2,000 and was probably less." (Freeman) N. B.

These are two testimonials to Auguste Chevallier, for his ingenious adaptation of a photographic camera to make a surveying plane-table, an essential tool in topographic mapping. He was able to achieve a panoramic image, without overlapping or distortions by using an objective with a rotary movement and collodion plate affixed to "a moving vertical wheel articulated at right angles, with a fixed horizontal wheel, the teeth of which force the vertical wheel to terminate a complete revolution upon itself at the precise moment when its horizontal axis has finished its tour of the horizon." The Photographic News, February 20, 1863, p. 95. In 1866, Chevallier introduced an improved panoramic camera for the same purpose.WorldCat locates 12 copies, but only the New York Public Library copy indicates both titles. It is possible that the first title was issue independently, and when the extract by D'Abbadie was released in December 1863, J.

        Compagnie parisienne d'éclairage et de chauffage par le gaz rapport au comité 1862 MANUSCRIT

      1862 - In-folio 100 pages manuscrites durant le premier et le deuxième semestre de l'année 1862 éclairant l'activité de la Compagnie tant du côté des ingénieurs que des administrateurs. Nombreux dessins emaillant le texte manuscrit et la correspondance. La Compagnie parisienne de gaz, appelée aussi Compagnie parisienne d'éclairage et de chauffage par le gaz, fut créé en 1855 et liquidée en 1905, la concession accordée ayant pris fin. L'unité du réseau fut garantie par le monopole de canalisation des rues, accordé en 1839, pour des quartiers séparés, à six compagnies distinctes. En 1846, une ordonnance royale fixe par contrat le prix de vente du gaz à la ville de Paris et au public pour 18 ans avec ces six compagnies, tandis qu'une autre décide neuf ans plus tard de la fusion de ces six compagnies1, pour créer la Compagnie parisienne de gaz, avec un contrat de 50 ans L'un des fondateurs, avec Louis César Auguste Margueritte (1798-1857), est Jules Guichard (1827-1896), lié à la famille Dubochet, qui va devenir plus tard président de la Compagnie universelle du canal de Suez. En 1849, le nouveau secrétaire général de l'une des six compagnies fusionnées est Jacques-Julien Dubochet, dont l'oncle Emmanuel-Vincent Dubochet l'avait dirigé aussi. La compagnie aura aussi comme directeurs Léon Gratien Bertrand (1858 -1951), ingénieur en chef des Ponts et chaussées, et Eugène Joseph de Gayffier, le beau-frère de Charles Auguste Machart. Elle a eu comme président Fernand Raoul-Duval (1833-1892). La compagnie est la deuxième capitalisation dès 1891 à la Bourse de Paris, où les sociétés de services (banque, transport, distribution de gaz ou d'électricité) sont dominantes. Les becs de gaz seront remplacés par des becs intensifs lorsque le gaz subit la concurrence de l'électricité, qui devient la principale source d'énergie pour l'éclairage à partir de années 1880, mais les deux sources d'énergie vont rivaliser pendant plusieurs années. L'année 1907 voit la création d'une nouvelle société, la Société du gaz de Paris (SGP) pour l'exploitation, tandis que la ville de Paris assure les investissements.
