        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.

RAPPORT SUR LA PLANCHETTE PHOTOGRAPHIQUE DE M. AUGUSTE CHEVALLIER. Extrait du Bulletin de la Société de Géographie, (Décembre 1862.) (Paris: Impriemerie de L. Martinet) 14 pp. Both are bound in the original printed wrappers which list both works; however, the street address of J. Dumaine, the publisher, has been changed in holograph. Also written in holograph on the top blank margin of the front wrapper "M. Chevallier, rue du Condé 1". Fine, bright, as new, housed in a paper over boards pamphlet case with printed labels. 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. Dumaine obtained copies and modified the wrapper title to include both parts, as in our copy. This would also explain the modification to his address. Roosens and Salu No. 7036 (first title).

        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.

        Authentic Memoirs of the Christian Church in China.: Edited, with an introduction and notes, by Richard Gibbing.

      Dublin The University Press 1862 - The German original, compiled in 1748, appeared both as a separate publication and as an addition to the German translation of Du Halde's description of China. An English translation appeared in 1750, but, according to this editor's introduction, was 'so scarce that its existence is almost unknown': 'At a time when the vast empire of China' had been opened it seem desirable, therefore, to place before the public 'a sketch of the missionary operations heretofore carried on in that mysterious country'. Gibbings introduction fills half of this edition. Cordier BS 766-7; Morrison I, p. 542 A very good unopened copy in original cloth; first few leaves lightly spotted. First publication of Gibbing's edition. 8vo, pp. [iv], 111, [1, advertisement].

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, ON A Camp Benton (St. Louis.) Looking East. PICTORIAL LETTER SHEET, DESCRIBING IN DETAIL THE BENTON BARRACKS TRAINING GROUND].

      Mervill [sic, i.e. Maryville], Mo. January 25, 1862. - [4]pp. autograph letter, signed, on a folded folio sheet of ruled paper, folded once, with an engraved vignette of Camp Benton in the upper third of the first page. Old folds. A bit of soiling. Ink a bit faded, but still readable. About very good. A very interesting letter from a Union soldier, written on a pictorial letter sheet, giving a description of Camp Benton, Missouri during the Civil War. Established as a training ground, Camp Benton could accommodate 30,000 soldiers, and was initially commanded by John C. Fremont, and then for a time by William Tecumseh Sherman (including the time when this letter was written). This letter was written by Philip P. Smith, a soldier in the 47th Regiment Illinois Volunteers, to his wife Sarah (it is addressed simply, "Dear Companion") on a pictorial letter sheet produced by the St. Louis firm of A. McLean. The vignette shows Camp Benton from the far end of the parade yard, with the camp headquarters at the far end, and the yard ringed with one-story barracks and the yard with tents and with soldiers marching or on horseback. In the text of the letter Smith describes Camp Benton and the letter sheet view at length and in detail. He explains that the vignette shows only a part of the camp, and that it is so large that "they can't draw all of the barracks at once." He writes (in part, and with spelling corrected): "This view of it shows the headquarters of the generals very plainly, but colonels headquarters can't be seen.These tents is used as guard houses. You can see the sentinels standing at their posts guarding prisoners in them tents! These others is ones out drilling in small squads. These men on horseback that looks small is a cavalry drill. These six men that you see riding up to one another looks like the generals' staff.These buildings that you see over the top of the barracks is cook houses. Every one of them buildings is calculated for 200 men to cook in so you can see how many men can cook on a side." Smith goes on to give more details of the camp, relating them to the view in the vignette. The tents that he describes were apparently used to house captured Missouri guerilla fighters. A scarce view of a Missouri Civil War camp, with a very interesting letter from a Union soldier who was there and fought in the western theatre during the Civil War.

        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.
