        Catalogo di alcune fra le migliori e piu' recenti carte geografiche e topografiche. Turin and Florence, Giovanni Battista Maggi (colophon: Turin, Tipografia Moretti), [ca. 1862]. 8vo. With the title-page printed on the front wrapper and included in the page count (21, [1] pp.). Original printed title-wrappers.

      Not in ICCU; KVK/WorldCat; cf. Bibliotheca Ambrosiana D.25 (11 pp.); Bibliografia Italiana II, 2844 (4 pp.); Bottasso, Le edizioni Pomba 296; for Maggi: Tooley, Dict. of Mapmakers, p. 412. Unrecorded edition of one of the very rare stock lists of Giovanni Battista Maggi, an Italian publisher and trader of maps, who later became a famous photographer. He was the official supplier of books and maps to his majesty Victor Emanuel II of Italy, as indicated on the title-page: "provveditore di stampe di s[ua] m[aesta]". The catalogue contains a large number of maps of countries from all over the world, with a large selection of maps of Italy, but also notable selections of Germany, France, Asia, America and France. Apparently only a few of the maps were published by Maggi himself.One of the maps of Italy by Sagansan bears the date 1862, so the present stock list was probably issued around the same time, as is confirmed by several other maps, such as Andriveau Goujon's Carte physique et politique de l'Europe , which was published in 1860. At least two other equally scarce editions of Maggi's stock lists are known, one of 11 pages and one 4, but the dates of publication are unclear.Slightly dog-eared and wrappers with some minor spots. Otherwise a very good copy of this rare stock list, giving a good indication of the availability of maps in Italy ca. 1862.

        Motifs de décorations. Première série de cinquante planches en couleurs extraites de Journal-Manuel de Peintures.

      - Paris, A. Morel, 1862. Royal Folio (52.1 x 36.2 cm). Half-title and title page, 50 fine chromolithographed plates on thick paper. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. Spine with five raised gilt-stippled and gilt-bordered bands, gilt title. Marbled endpapers.l A very rare and lavishly produced polychromatic work showing the extravagant interior designs which epitomize the eclectic period that bridged the gap between the rather straightforward Louis XIII to XVIII styles and neoclassicism, and the subsequent Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras. Elements of Egyptian, Roman and Islamic art are freely mixed with Biedermeier images and Rococo ornaments. It forms a truly unique display of the artistic taste of the period. However, this work is an example of the quality of French colour-printing as well: the quality of the colouring and the rendering of small details is superb. Little is known about the authors. They were peintres-décorateurs but here they show considerable skills in illustrating and printing. The periodical, "Journal-Manuel de Peintures", was published by Morel from 1853 onwards and continued for at least 20 years. Being of a rather ephemeral nature, few parts with text pages are on the market. As the title suggests, this work is probably the separately published album of the full-colour plates also published in this journal. Board edges a bit rubbed, some age toning and spotting to some plate margins, but nowhere obtrusive. We could only trace two copies in libraries worldwide. In all, a very good copy of this very rare work. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Un Souvenir de Solferino.

      Imprimerie Jules-Guillaume Fick, Geneva 1862 - 4to (262 x 165 mm). [4] [1] 2-115 [1] pp., including half-title and double-page chromolithograph map drawn by B. Müller from the author's instructions; lithographed by Pilet & Cougnard, Geneva. Contemporary half-calf over marbled boards, spine lettered and ruled in gilt (light wear to extremities, upper hinge cracked but firm), marbled endpapers. Internally only little age-toned, occasional very minor spotting, otherwise crisp and clean. Provenance: Van Tuijll(?)*, Red Cross, s-Gravenhage. A very fine, untouched copy. ---- PMM 350; Norman 670; Garrison-M 2166; Grolier/Norman 73; Waller 2639; Heirs of Hippocrates, 1945; En Français dans le Texte 284. - FIRST EDITION. "On 24 June 1859 the Battle of Solferino - one of the bloodiest of the nineteenth century - was fought between the Austrians and the French-Piedmontese alliance. Dunant, a Swiss philanthropist, witnessed the battle and its dreadful aftermath, in which the nearly 40,000 casualties were left to die with no medical treatment except what he and the local inhabitants could provide them. Upon returning to Geneva Dunant published Un souvenir de Solferino, an account of the horrors he had seen coupled with an appeal for "some international principle, with the sanction of an inviolable convention, which. . . might constitute a basis for the relief of the wounded in the various countries of Europe." The wide interest generated by Dunant's book led in 1863 to the formation of a committee which later became the International Red Cross, and in 1864 to the establishment of the Geneva Convention. Dunant shared with Frédéric Passy the first Noble Peace Prize in 1901" (Norman 670). "The first edition of Un Souvenir de Solferino consisted of sixteen hundred copies printed in November 1862 for private distribution. Only four hundred of these were actually distributed; these copies, constituting the original issue, have a title page stating 'Ne se vend pas' above the imprint. A month later, in December 1862, Dunant had another thousand copies bound with a title page indicating 'deuxième édition'. The third edition, in which Dunant suggested the extension of Red Cross services to victims of natural disasters, appeared in 1863. An English translation was published by the American Red Cross in 1939." (Haskell Norman, One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine 73, p. 269). *According to a Dutch inscription on the half-title, this copy was given by the author to "(?) van Tuijll" who added his address "Parkstraat 213". It was later donated to the "Jeugd Roode Kruis Afd. 's-Gravenhage" - Visit our website for more information and additional images. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Manuscript on paper, illustrated with 21 fine pen & ink drawings. 35 folding leaves. 8vo (248 x 173 mm.), orig. wrappers

      [Probably Kyoto: 1862 or shortly thereafter]. The opening of Japan by Perry caused tremendous political and economic turmoil and violence within the hitherto relatively peaceful country. The country was divided into two groups: the first supported the shogun and his cooperation with the Western nations and the second considered these changes a betrayal of traditional Japanese values and called for the emperor to unify the country. Political assassinations became common on the streets of Kyoto. This manuscript describes and depicts a series of victims of assassination, most of whom were supporters of the shogun. They include Seiichiro Homma, Genba Ugo, Kinzaburo Watanabe, Shigezo Oogawara, Tatekiwa Tada, Hajime Kagawa, and finally Kazue Murayama, the mistress of Naosuke Ii. In each case there is a gruesome illustration of their heads on stakes or their bodies tied to racks with a facing account of their "crimes." There is also an illustration of Hajime Kagawa's severed head, ear, and arm. These parts of his body were sent to aristocratic families as warnings. Chaos and violence continued in Kyoto for several more years, in spite of military interventions. Eventually the shogunate came to an end and the Meiji Restoration commenced with the emperor established as the symbolic head of the country. In fine condition.

        Excellent Civil War Letter from a Union Soldier in West Virginia

      Three page Autograph Letter Signed ("Charls Cathorne") on patriotic letterhead, dated 8 April 1862 (and continued on 18 April), from "Randof County, verchinnia" (now West Virginia). Folded as mailed, a little wear at the folds, very good. Cathorne, a barely literate Union soldier, recounts his experiences in the western part of Virginia during the first year of the war (Cathorne's spelling and capitalization retained): "My Dear friends i take my Optunity to rite to you that i am Well and hope that this few lines may fine you in the same state of good helt and all the rest of my friends And Further i tel you that iam in the servis and like it Well so far and the times is geting Better Now in this plase the secesion is geting a fraid here in this plase they are leaving verchinnia We had a good Many fites seines i haf inlisted in servis We had A fite on rich Mountain and Wipt them and We had A fite on Cheat Mountain and Wipt them Out Of the plase And We had a fite On Alleyginnia Mountain and We had to retreat the first time but the second time We taken the plase and kept the plase and further i tel you that we had a good many fites since... ." Cawthorne recounts several other "fites," and relates a list of prisoners and supplies captured. He ends with a lament that "This is a very Cold plase here the mountains is high... ." The opposing armies sat out the winter in the frigid mountains, and about the time of this letter the Confederate Army abandoned the western part of Virginia for the Shenandoah Valley. .

        The Soldier's Dream. "In His Blanket on the Ground

      Greenville, South Carolina: G. E. Elford's Press, n.d.. Broadside. Very good. Broadside (printed front side only). Approx. 9.5" x 5". Broadside has light fold creases and one stanza has light pencil underlining. This poem appeared in an 1862 publication titled "War Songs of the South" edited by "Bohemian" [William G. Shepperson]. The book was published in Richmond 1862 by West and Johnson (a Confederate imprint). Shepperson attributes the poem to author "Caroline Howard Glover" from the Charleston Mercury. Caroline Howard Glover was the daughter of Rev. Samuel Gilman and widow of South Carolina Planter William Glover. The same poem was included in "War Poetry of the South" edited by William Gilmore Simms. It was published in New York 1866 by Richardson & Company. Simms names the author as "Caroline H. Gervais" (remarried name?) A much later publication edited by H. M. Wharton in 1904 titled "War Songs and Poems of the Southern Confederacy, 1861-1865 also attributes authorship to Caroline H. Gervais. This broadside is not listed in Parrish and Willingham. The printer, G. E. Elford of Greenville South Carolina, published other Confederate imprints during the War.

A very fine, untouched copy. ----PMM 350; Norman 670; Garrison-M 2166; Grolier/Norman 73; Waller 2639; Heirs of Hippocrates, 1945; En Français dans le Texte 284. - FIRST EDITION. "On 24 June 1859 the Battle of Solferino - one of the bloodiest of the nineteenth century - was fought between the Austrians and the French-Piedmontese alliance. Dunant, a Swiss philanthropist, witnessed the battle and its dreadful aftermath, in which the nearly 40,000 casualties were left to die with no medical treatment except what he and the local inhabitants could provide them. Upon returning to Geneva Dunant published Un souvenir de Solferino, an account of the horrors he had seen coupled with an appeal for "some international principle, with the sanction of an inviolable convention, which. . . might constitute a basis for the relief of the wounded in the various countries of Europe." The wide interest generated by Dunant's book led in 1863 to the formation of a committee which later became the International Red Cross, and in 1864 to the establishment of the Geneva Convention. Dunant shared with Frédéric Passy the first Noble Peace Prize in 1901" (Norman 670). "The first edition of Un Souvenir de Solferino consisted of sixteen hundred copies printed in November 1862 for private distribution. Only four hundred of these were actually distributed; these copies, constituting the original issue, have a title page stating 'Ne se vend pas' above the imprint. A month later, in December 1862, Dunant had another thousand copies bound with a title page indicating 'deuxième édition'. The third edition, in which Dunant suggested the extension of Red Cross services to victims of natural disasters, appeared in 1863. An English translation was published by the American Red Cross in 1939." (Haskell Norman, One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine 73, p. 269). *According to a Dutch inscription on the half-title, this copy was given by the author to "(?) van Tuijll" who added his address "Parkstraat 213". It was later donated to the "Jeugd Roode Kruis Afd. 's-Gravenhage" Near Fine.

        Die botanischen Ergebnisse der Reise seiner königl. Hoheit des Prizen Waldemar von Preussen in den Jahren 184 und 1846. Durch Dr. Werner Hoffmeister Leibarzt S.K.H. auf Ceylon, dem Himalaya und an den Grenzen von Tibet gesammelte Pflanzen.

      Berlin, Verlag der Königlichen Geheimen Ober-Hofbuchdruckerei (R. Decker), 1862. Folio (338 x 265mm). pp. (8), 164 with 100 lithographed plates. Later half calf, spine in 6 compartments with gilt ornaments and lettering. A very rare and beautifully produced work, commissioned by Royal patronage and printed in a limited edition. The text of the present work was written by Johann Friedrich Klotzsch and August Garcke and the plants were collected by Werner Hoffmeister. Werner Hoffmeister, a medical doctor was part of the Prince Waldemar of Prussia (1817-1849) expedition to India. Prince Waldemar had been in close contact with Alexander von Humboldt who characterised him as follows: "A deep admiration for the beauty of nature, an inner longing for achieving something Great and to explore distant lands might have prompted the young Prince to travel to East-India". During the expedition Werner Hoffmeister, only 26 years of age, was killed in a battle. The expedition returned with a comprehensive herbarium of plants, meticulously pressed and annotated by Hoffmeister. It included 456 species, of which 108 were new to science, and 270 genera of plants. The botanist J. F. Klotzsch and August Garcke were engaged to work and describe the material collected in India. 16 years after Prince Waldemar returned from India, the Prince had died 3 years after his return, the book was published. Prince Adalbert of Prussia, the brother of Waldemar, commissioned the work to be published. The fine plates are by C.F. Schmidt.//Provenance: Stamp of Reinhold Ludewig on title.//Stafleu & Cowan 3746; Nissen BBI, 1070.

        Les Miserables

      Bruxelles: Lacroix, Verboeckhoven & Ce, 1862. Scarce first printing of this classic work of literature, published in Brussels on the 30th or 31st March 1862. The question of priority had been intensely debated in bibliographic circles for years. The findings of Michaux and Lacretelle definitively established primacy of this edition over the one distributed four or five days later in Paris by Pagnerre. The initial confusion stemmed from two sources: first was the prominent appearance of Pagnerre's name--and none other--in the French edition as a "Libraire-editeur," when in fact he was a distributing agent only; second was general acceptance of Vicaire's claim that Hugo corrected only from the proofs for the French edition. Michaux postulated that Hugo used the Belgian editions of his works as models for the Parisian printings. To ensure publication in France, Hugo was forced to amputate certain phrases from Les Miserables that would have offended the French censor. Lacretelle later confirmed Michaux's hypothesis. Large octavos, cotemporary calf, gilt decorated compartments to the spine, red and green morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With the bookplates of Witley Court. Witley Court in Worcestershire, England is an Italianate mansion that was built for the Foleys in the seventeenth century on the site of a former manor house, it was enormously expanded in the early nineteenth century by the architect John Nash. Subsequently sold to the Earls of Dudley, a second massive reconstruction by the architect Samuel Daukes took place in the mid nineteenth century, creating one of the great pleasure palaces of Victorian and Edwardian England and contained a large library. Volume IV is the First Paris Edition. The "Septieme" Edition" on the title page was spurious and meant to help boost sales. Rare and desirable with noted provenance. Victor Hugo's "great novel has been hailed as a masterpiece of popular literature, an epic poem in prose about God, humanity, and Hugo... Hugo hoped that Les Miserables would be one of if not the 'principal summits' of his body of works. Despite its length, complexity, and occasionally unbelievable plot and characterization, it remains a masterpiece of popular literature. It anticipates Balzac in its realism, but in its flights of imagination and lyricism, its theme of redemption, and its melding of myth and history, it is uniquely Hugo" (Dolbow, 149, 214). Charles E. Wilbour was hired by the Carleton Publishing Company to translate Hugo's grand masterpiece, and he did so very quickly, allowing the first American edition to be published within months of its French release. The intense advertising campaign waged by Carleton resulted in massive sales for Les Miserables, solidifying Hugo's epic in second place (behind only Uncle Tom's Cabin) in pre-Civil War American book sales.

        L'ART DE LA PHOTOGRAPHIE PAR DISDÉRI.; AVEC UNE INTRODUCTION PAR LAFON DE CAMARSAC

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1862. First edition. Thick 8vo., 367 pp., illustrations in text. Contemporary binding of calf and marbled paper over boards, with gilt title label and rules. Modest rubbing to the spine. There is a small hole on the first blank leaf. A very good copy. One of the few copies issued on a heavier paper. André-Adolphe-Eugène Disdéri (1819 - 1889) a self-taught daguerreotypist, researched and improved upon the existing collodion-on-glass negative process, which he outlined in his first publication, Manuel Opératoire de Photographie sur Collodion Instantané, 1853. That same year, he returned to Paris and opened the largest studio in Paris, which spread across two floors. It was there that he introduced his carte-de-visite portraits which were a great financial success. For the 1855 Paris Exposition Universelle, he formed the Société du Palais de l'Industrie and obtained the rights to photograph all the products and works of art exhibited at the Exposition. In this, his best known and most influential book, Disdéri provides an introduction to the materials of photography, including photomechanical processes, a through discussion of the collodion process, and in the final part he discusses his approach to the practice and the art of photography, defending it as more than a mechanical operation, with comparisons to painting. Eder writes "Disdéri was considered the outstanding portrait photographer of his time in Paris. Napoleon III appointed him court photographer. In 1861 he instructed French officers in photography under orders from the minister of war. Disdéri's popularity is best shown by the fact that his character was introduced in 1861 as a star attraction on the stage of a small vaudeville theater in Paris by a realistic representation featuring his bald head and tremendous beard."

        A STRANGE STORY By the Author of "Rienzi," "My Novel," etc etc etc

      London: Sampson Low, Son, & Co., 1862.. Octavo, two volumes: pp. [1-2] [i-iii] iv-x [1] 2-353 [354: printer's imprint]; [1-2] [1] 2-384 + 16-page publisher's catalogue dated January 1862 inserted at rear of volume two, half title leaf in volume one, none in volume two, as issued, original decorated brown cloth, front and rear panels stamped in blind, spine panels stamped in gold and blind, top and fore-edges untrimmed, cream coated endpapers. First British edition. Sampson Low's edition was preceded by a two-volume Continental edition published by Tauchnitz in 1861. Bulwer-Lytton, "an assiduous student of occultism and the pseudo sciences, attended Levi's conjurations, and his novel A STRANGE STORY (1862) is based in great part on Levi's work. Bulwer-Lytton's Margrave is the first convincing capable practicing black magician in modern literature. A STRANGE STORY was widely read, and many fictional accounts of magical ceremonies have been derived from it." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 304. "In the field of supernatural literature Bulwer is enormously important ... A STRANGE STORY stands behind most more recent novels of magic or of personality change ..." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction, p. 87 (also described as entry 305). "The novel itself is a real triumph, in the end subordinating all the occult machinery, including a full-scale alchemical and Rosicrucian distillation of the elixir of life, to the strongly-based philosophical and religious arguments for the immortality of the human soul." - Wolff 960. "Despite serious flaws, this is one of the towering works of Victorian supernatural fiction, casting its shadow far and wide." - Robert Eldridge. Discussed in Wolff, Strange Stories, pp. 265-322. Discussed in Christensen, Edward Bulwer-Lytton: The Fiction of New Regions, esp. pp. 176-81. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 1-26. Bailey, Pilgrims Through Space and Time, pp. 30-1. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 2-55. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 145. Schlobin, The Literature of Fantasy 148. Suvin, Victorian Science Fiction in the UK, pp. 102-03.

Pencilled pagination to upper inner corners of plates. Subtle repair to edges of title, text leaves, and a few plates (Halte des pèlerins, Vue génerale de Jérusalem, Intérieur de la Porte d'or, and Mosquée el Aksa), light marginal foxing or soiling, the images affected only in the first two plates (Halte des pèlerins and the Vue génerale). A very good copy. Coloured lithographic plan mounted to title leaf as issued, 2 text leaves, and 14 lithographic plates of which 12 in original hand-colour. First and only edition of this uncommon pictorial account of the visit of the Mediterranean squadron of the French navy to Jerusalem in 1861. Most of the plates illustrate the interior of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, though there are also depictions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Mosque of Omar. "Pâris was named commander of the third division of the Mediterranean Squadron in December, 1858. He was already well known as a naval artist and he produced works on the technology of steam engines and other technical matters" (Blackmer). The colour plates in this copy are exceptionally bright.

        PHOTOGRAPHIE RATIONNELLE: TRAITÉ COMPLET THÉORIQUE ET PRATIQUE, APPLICATIONS DIVERSES. PRÉCÉDÉ DE L'HISTOIRE DE LA PHOTOGRAPHIE ET SUIVI D'ÉLÉMENTS DE CHIMIE APPLIQUÉE À CET ART

      Leiber, Paris 1862 - 8vo., [ii], [2], 413, [blank 414], 419-420 pp. [i.e. 416 pages, and complete]. Original printed wrappers, bound in modern half brown morocco and marbled paper over boards with the spine in six compartments, titled in gilt. Publisher's address eradicated from the front wrapper with no loss to the paper; a one inch tape repair on the half-title page, faint damp stain on the first 100 pages. In all, a very good and bright copy in an attractive binding. Joseph Auguste Belloc (1789 - 1881) like many of his photographic contemporaries, began his career as a painter. His introduction to photography was to the daguerreian process, and in the early 1850s, he was using wet collodion and wax coating his prints, which added to their luster. He was an ardent experimenter and teacher whose publications were popular and accessible.This work suggests practical and theoretical uses for photography, including daguerreotype, calotype, extensive consideration to the collodion process (archerotype, etc), optics, processing room, and stereo; preceded by a history and section on photographic chemistry. I have now owned two copies of this title and can note that there are two different imprints: Leiber, and Chez Dentu, et Chez L'Auteur. Both have the identical printer's mark, "VERSAILLES. - IMPRIMERIE CERF, 59, RUE DU PLESSIS" , and appear to be from the same type setting. However, the Leiber copy appears to be printed on a better quality paper and bulks at 7/8 inches while the Dentu copy bulks at 3/4 inches. This would explain the eradication of a portion of the imprint on the front wrapper of this copy. Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, No. 140 lists Dentu as the publisher. Roosens and Salu No. 4240 listing Leiber as the publisher. WorldCat locates 13 copies, a mix between the 2 publishers. [Attributes: First Edition]
