        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.

        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]

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.
