        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." WorldCat locates thirteen copies, with Getty Research Institute, the National Gallery of Art, and Clark Art Institute as the only U.S. holdings. Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, No. 134. Roosens and Salu No. 4246. The copy of Anatole de Baudot (1834 - 1915) noted French architect, signed and dated 1862 on the verso of the flyleaf.

Técnica: Xilografía en color (el dibujo se crea con planchas de madera) Ukiyo-e. Conservación: Muy buen estado, pequeñas restauraciones. Utagawa Yoshitora (Activo entre 1840-80) Yoshitora nació en Edo. Pero no se conoce la fecha de su nacimiento ni de su muerte. Era un estudiante del famoso artista ukiyo-e Kuniyoshi, aunque según algunas fuentes, Kuniyoshi lo llegó a expulsar de su escuela. Hizo muchas impresiones que muestran escenas en Edo. Sus grabados de los extranjeros en Yokohama y los de la historia del Japón son únicos. Los grabados de Yokohama tienen un encanto ingenuo, como las pinturas de los grandes post-impresionista franceses. AEB1

        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. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 2-19. In 333. Bleiler (1978), p. 34. Reginald 09382. Hubin (1994), p. 117. Sadleir 444. Contemporary owner's signature dated 1862 on both title pages. Later owner's signature dated 1921 on both paste-downs. Cloth rubbed at edges, some soiling and several small stains to cloth, inner front hinge of volume 1 broken, otherwise, a good, fairly decent copy. (#151644)

        Souvenirs de Jérusalem. Lithographié par Hubert Clerger, Jules Gaildrau et Fichot. Ouvrage publié par l'escadre de la Méditerranée.

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).

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.

        MADAME DE STAEL AND THE GRAND-DUCHESS LOUISE. A Selection from the Unpublished Correspondence of Madame de Stael and the Grand-Duchess Louise of Saxe-Weimar, from 1800 to 1817. Together with a Letter to Bonaparte, First Consul; and Another to Napoleon, Emperor.; By the Author of "Souvenirs of Madame Recamier."

      Saunders, Otley, and Co, London 1862 - 8vo; xxiii, 223 pp. Bound by Riviere & Son in green calf, with gilt-decorated spine and five raised bands, gilt borders, all edges gilt. A very good copy. With tipped-in autograph letter dated 8 August 1825 from French writer and politician Benjamin Constant to poet Maurice de Guerin. An interesting association of a literary and political salon in 19th-century France. Amelie Lenormant was the niece and adopted daughter of Juliette Recamier, the great friend of Madame de Stael. Henri-Benjamin Constant de Rebecque (1767-1830) was a French political philosopher and intimate of Madame de Stael. Their collaboration made them a fierce intellectual pair. Constant was also the author of one novel --"Adolphe" -- a work in the sentimental tradition about a young man's disastrous love affair with an older mistress. French poet Maurice de Guerin (1810-1839) was probably more celebrated for his prose than his poetry. Its charm arises from de Guerin's absorbing passion for nature. According to Sainte-Beuve "no French poet or painter has rendered so well the feeling for nature -- the feeling not so much for details as for the ensemble and the divine universality, the feeling for the origin of things and the sovereign principle of life."

        Mémoire sur les Corpuscules organisées qui existent dans l'Atmosphere. Examen de la doctrine des générations spontanées.

      Paris: Mallet-Bachelier 1862 - with two large folding plates, pp. 110, 8vo, uncut in the original printed wrappers, rebacked, wrappers soiled, stamp of the Wellcome Institute Library on verso of tile and last page of text, the former endorsed 'withdrawn', good. Very rare offprint from from Annales de chimie et de physique, 3rd series, 64 (1862) of Pasteur's longest and most important paper on airborne micro-organisms; the downfall of the theory of spontaneous generation. Pasteur used a heating process, the earliest form of pasteurization, in 'further experiments which demonstrated beyond dispute that fermentation is caused by the action of minute living organisms, and that if these organisms are excluded or killed fermentation does not occur' (PMM). The paper first appeared in Annales des sciences naturelles, Zoologie, 4th series (1861), from which no offprints are known.

        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.

        Thebes, its Tombs and their Tenants Ancient and Present including a Record of Excavations in the Necropolis.

      London: Longman, Green, Longman, and Roberts, 1862 - Large octavo. Original purplish pebble-grain, title gilt to spine, panels in blind to boards, brown surface-paper endpapers. Irregularly sunned on the boards and spine, front hinge just a little cracked, light browning and some foxing front and back, but overall very good. Coloured frontispiece and 7 other tinted or coloured plates, one with gold, numerous illustrations to the text. First edition. Having begun his archaeological researches in his native Scotland, Rhind's health forced him to winter in Egypt 1855–6 and 1856–7. While there he undertook the "important investigations of the tombs at Thebes" (ODNB) which are recorded here. His methodical practice (he was the first archaeologist to record the exact locations of finds and their relationships) has led to him being hailed as the "bright shining light of archaeological method and conscience" (Wilson, Signs and Wonders upon Pharaoh). On his death at only 30 years old, he left funds for two scholarships at Edinburgh University; endowed an industrial institution for orphan girls in his home town; bequeathed his library and £400 for excavations to the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland; and the copyright of this book and some moneys from his estate towards the establishment of a series of lectures, the prestigious Rhind Lectures which continue to this day.

In the first part of the present work, Pavy described his modification of Fehling's solution (copper sulfate, potassium bitartrate, sodium hydroxide, water) by adding an ammoniacal salt, so that it could be used to analyze the amount of glucose in the blood and urine. He later gave a classic description of diabetic neuropathy, and was among the first to recognize the significance of acetone and other ketones discharged in the acute stages of diabetes.

Gurney was the only son of Joseph John Gurney of Earlham Hall, Norwich, Norfolk. At the age of ten he was sent to a private tutor at Leytonstone near the Epping Forest, where he met Henry Doubleday, and commenced his first natural history collection. From there he moved to the Friends' School at Tottenham, and whilst there met William Yarrell. At the age of seventeen he joined the family's banking business in Norwich. Gurney published a number of articles in The Zoologist on the birds of Norfolk. He also commenced a collection of birds of prey. In 1864 he published Part I. of his Descriptive Catalogue of this collection, and in 1872 he edited The Birds of Damara Land from the notes of his friend Charles John Andersson. Between 1875 and 1882 he produced a series of notes in The Ibis on the first volume of the Catalogue of Birds in the British Museum, and in 1884 brought out a List of Diurnal Birds of Prey, with References and Annotations. The archives of Cambridge University Museum of Zoology contains five volumes of correspondence between Alfred Newton and Gurney, who was a founding member of the Norfolk Naturalists Trust. For the last twenty years of his life he resided at the family's home at Northrepps, near Cromer. His son, John Henry Gurney Jr., was also an ornithologist, and his great great grandson, Henry Richard Gurney of Heggatt Hall has continued the family tradition. The southern African race of the black-necked grebe, Podiceps nigricollis gurneyi, was named by South African zoologist and author Austin Roberts in 1919 in honour of the father and son. John Henry Gurney Jr.'s daughter Agatha Gurney (1881–1937) married Sir Edward Ruggles-Brise, 1st Baronet.

        Curiosities of Occult Literature. [Author's annotated copy].

      8. XI, 275 pages plus 11 pages of a travel manuscript to Palestine in the rear of the volume (dates from 1862-1863). Original Hardcover (blindstamped cloth with gilt lettering on spine: "Occult Literature 1878 M.S.S.". Very good condition with only minor signs of wear. Exlibris of Marci H. Huthwaite to front pastedown. Interleaved volume with multiple annotations by the author. Cooke's Curiosities of Occult Literature, interleaved, and extensively annotated by the author. The binding is in worn contemporary brown cloth with blind decorations and brown coated endpapers. Both printed text and interleaved pages show marginal browning. Bibliographically the book is not simple: the title page dates from 1863, but the binding is dated to 1878. In the years in between, and afterwards, the author has filled the interleaved pages with his jottings and annotations, meriting the description 'M.S.S.' - manuscript - on the spine. The book itself purports to be 'a plain, unvarnished tale' written in defence of his legal work and pamphleteering on behalf of astrology. In effect the 58 interleaved pages and marginal annotations unpack and amplify the author's opinions as expressed in the printed text. Thus the author appends a two page long explanation of the court case that set in train the book's narrative opposite the title page. It's not possible to do justice to the range and eccentricity of the manuscript interventions but instead to point to some highlights. At one extreme the author expands on the printed text with additional factual information, for example giving the address of a London phrenologist, additionally noting that it was 'in Piccadilly opposite St James's Church where the author's mother was baptised.' At the opposite extreme there are lengthy narrative interventions such as an account of the death of Mr White, a 'martyr' to astrology in the Isle of Wight and a lengthy excursus against Britain's 'secret police'. The author debates Robert Owen's complicated relationship with the establishment particularly the alarm this 'socialist' caused with his 'appearance at the Levee of Queen V[ictoria]' The astrological theme runs consistently through the annotations with exercises in astrological physiognomy as well as astrological tables and analyses of many of the people referred to in the text. To the rear of the book is an eight page diary of a trip to Palestine, undertaken by the author in 1862-3.

        GALERIE DES CONTEMPORAINS.; Text by Dollingen. Portraits by Disdéri

      Paris: Chez les Auteurs, 1862. First edition. Disdéri, André-Adolphe-Eugène. 16mos. 15 original albumen photographic portraits (ca. 3 1/4 x 2 inches) mounted on printed stiff paper mounts (ca. 5 3/4 x 4 1/5 inches). 14 of the portraits are each housed in their original printed paper folder, which includes a printed biographical text (4 pp.).

Housed in a calf and marbled paper clamshell box with label on spine. André-Adolphe-Eugène Disdéri, a Parisian, was the official photographer to the court of Napoleon III; he is credited with the popularization of the cartes-de-visite in the 1850s; in 1854, he obtained a patent for a standard format of 4 x 2 1/2 inches. Among the portraits offered here are: Comte de Cavour, Suzanne Lagier,Sir Robert Peel, Emanuel Gonzalès, Parade, Mlle. Figeac, Les Frères Lionnet, P.- C. Hugier, and S.M.

        ORIENTAL ALBUM: TWENTY ILLUSTRATIONS, IN OIL AND COLORS OF THE PEOPLE

      1862. Very Good. VAN LENNEP, Henry J. THE ORIENTAL ALBUM: TWENTY ILLUSTRATIONS, IN OIL AND COLORS OF THE PEOPLE AND SCENERY OF TURKEY, with an explanatory and descriptive text. New York: Anson D.F. Randolph, 1862. A tinted lithographic title-page by Charles Parsons, printed by Endicott & Co, and 20 chromolithograph plates by Parsons after Van Lennep, also printed by Endicott. 48 pp. text, including a letterpress title-page. Folio. 17 7/8 x 13 1/2 in. Original pebbled cloth boards, with title and a pictorial vignette gilt-stamped to upper board, handsomely rebacked in brown morocco with gilt lettering on spine, and with marbled endpapers renewed. The boards show light soiling and wear at fore corners, and the lower board is damp spotted. Text leaves are uniformly toned. There is a faint tide- line that begins just at the top edge of the bookblock that incrementally increases throughout the volume. It isn't really noticeable on the text leaves and only just enters the very top of edge of the last two plates. Some minor marginal foxing to some pates, otherwise they are bright and clean. It is a very good copy overall. THE ORIENTAL ALBUM is a collection of near eastern types and costumes found in mid-nineteenth century Ottoman Turkey that were "drawn directly from nature." The twenty plates that comprise the album give examples of "the various and distinct nations which compose the population living side by side, and yet unmixed." There are Turkish ladies at home and abroad, both veiled and unveiled, and their Armenian counterparts, a Turkish effendi, an Armenian peasant woman, and a Druse girl, along with a Turkish scribe, a Jewish merchant, a travelling merchant from Baghdad, a Circassian warrior, an Albanian guard, a Turkish policeman, an Armenian piper, a gypsy fortune-teller, and a bandit chief, as well as scenes showing a Jewish marriage, an Armenian wedding procession, and an Armenian bride. The figures have a monumental quality while the plates, which are printed in luminous warm tones, project a limpid serenity. The book is a landmark in American chromolithographic printing; McGrath identifies it as "the one really big chromolithographic book" of the 1860s. Henry Van Lennep (1815-1889) was born in Smyrna, the son of European parents whose families had been longtime residents of the Levant. He was educated in the United States, on the advice of American missionaries

        ATTENTION, PARTIZAN RANCERS [sic]! [caption title]

      Washington, Ar, 1862. Small broadside, approximately 11 x 8 inches. Previously folded. Two very short separation along old folds at right edge. Faint dampstaining in lower left corner, light tanning. Very good. An extremely scarce Confederate broadside, calling for the mobilization of the First Texas Partisan Rangers and their assembly in East Texas near the Arkansas state line. The Partisan Rangers Act was passed in the spring of 1862 by the Confederate Congress to encourage the formation of irregular military units. Accordingly, Col. W.P. Lane raised the First Texas Partisan Rangers in June 1862. The regiment spent all of its service west of the Mississippi River, and participated in more than twenty engagements, including those at Bayou Boeuf, Kock's Plantation, Stirling's Plantation, and Bayou Bourbeau. This broadside indicates that the regiment will be bound for Ft. Gibson, in Indian Territory. The text of the broadside reads in full: "Attention, Partizan Rancers [sic]! All persons who have enlisted for, or squads or companies raised by the authority from Col. W.P. Lane, or the undersigned, will report at once to Major Burns or the Senior officer at camp, close to the Arkansas state line a short distance from Rondo. The regiment is under urgent marching orders for Ft. Gibson, en route to [...] Bring all the arms possible. We have special orders by which we are not to be dismounted! Lt. Col. A. Neill."

Folding map geologically coloured according to the strata, with four cross sections to the sides and a key to the colouring to the upper left corner, folds between original blindstamped red cloth boards, gilt to the upper cover, "Explanation" to the map (23, (1) pp.) bound in at the front. Darkening to the cloth boards to the lower edge adjacent to the spine, with a corresponding faint dampstain to the gutters of the text leaves, else a lovely example. One of Geikie's earliest published works, appearing three years after "The Story of a Boulder" and predating "The Scenery of Scotland..." by four years. Murchison, the elder statesmen of British geology, and Geikie found themselves on one side of what has come to be known as the Highlands Controversy. Their theories on the formation of the strata of the Highlands were strongly opposed by others such as James Nicol, whose arguments were subsequently proved to be significantly more accurate. First published the previous year, both editions are uncommon. Although the pagination of the text is slightly different it would appear that this is a straight reprint of the first edition, certainly the map appears to be identical.

        Manuscript account book of the restoration of Strawberry Hill (with) Manuscript listing material for new edition of Walpole's letters

      London, 1862. Original green cloth. Original account book of 150 pages, 22 lines each, on blue lined paper. Original green cloth, somewhat soiled; the interior in excellent condition. Walpole lived at Strawberry Hill for about fifty years until his death in March, 1797. When he died, the house was entrusted to his cousin, Mrs. Anne Seymour Damer, who, in order to cope with the high expenses of the building, had been given a subsidy of about £2000 a year. Soon she realized that the cost of maintenance was too great, so in 1810 she passed the property over to Walpole's grand-niece Laura Elizabeth Waldegrave. After Laura died, the heredity passed into the hands of her eldest son John Waldegrave and his wife Frances. In 1842 there was a great sale of some of Walpole's curious collections of antiquities that lasted 32 days. In 1855 the Countess Waldegrave decided to restore Strawberry Hill and turn it into a palace for great political receptions. She invested about £20,000 a year; during the period from 1856 to 1858, major restorations were made, including new floors, pantry, inside staircase, dining room, gardens, trees and fountains, paintings, drawing rooms, fire places, etc. These are only a few of the entries noted. The account book details the monthly expenses paid out, such as workers' wages, their names and the amounts paid for the month. (Offered with) Manuscript book apparently listing the prints, books and drawings for a massive extra-illustrated edition of H. Walpole's letters (?). 4to. In double columns, approximately 7500 listings. A contemporary note states that this volume should come after Volume II, part II. WALDEGRAVE Family GEORGE (1751-1789). 4th Earl of Waldegrave, was a soldier and member of Parliament), descended from James II & James III. In 1782, he married his cousin, Lady Elizabeth Waldegrave. George (1784-1794), 5th Earl of Waldegrave, married Walpole's niece Laura. John James (1785-1839), 6th Earl of Waldegrave, married Frances Elizabeth Anne Braham, Countess Waldegrave (1774-1856) and they inherited Strawberry Hill. Upon John's death in 1839, Frances married George Edward (1816-1846), the 7th Earl of Waldegrave. Heavily in debt, they decided to sell Walpole's treasures at their home in 1842. Frances ultimately came into sole ownership of Strawberry Hill upon his death four years later. Frances Elizabeth Anne, Braham, Countess Waldegrave (1774-1856), daughter of John Braham, considered the greatest English tenor and composer of all times. Noted for his splendid voice and keen business sense, he made his debut at the Royalty Theatre in 1787 with the greatest success. He also produced many of his own operas. He appeared in Covent Gardens and his career was an unbroken succession of triumphs. Frances was married twice more after George Edward's death, first to Granville Harcourt (d. 1861) and then in 1863 To Chichester Fortescue, later Lord Carlingford (1823-1898). FORTESCUE, Chichester (Lord Carlingford) (1823-98) Son of Chichester Fortescue (d. 1826), he was educated at Christ Church, Oxford where he took a first in classics and won the chancellor's English essay. From 1847-1874 he was a liberal member of parliament for Louth. He was junior lord of the treasury, under-secretary of state for the colonies, and succeeded Robert Peel as chief secretary for Ireland under Lord Russell. On formation of Gladstone's first administration he became president of the Board of Trade, later lord privy seal. He shared the burden and the credit of some great reforms following the disestablishment of the Irish Church. John Stuart Mill described his measure as the most important passed by the British parliament since the Roman Catholic Emancipation act. He was raised to the peerage as Lord Carlingford, and succeeded Lord Spencer as president of the council. His wife, Frances Elizabeth Anne, Countess Waldegrave, was a great help in her counsel and encouragement through the most active part of his public career.

      Montreal: John Lovell, 1862. Hardcover. Good. An early mention (and perhaps the first book publication) of the proposed state of Kanawha - the breakaway state which became West Virginia - is found in this early Civil War-era printing of a popular school Geography. Yellow printed paper over boards with quarter black leather spine, 4to (11 inches tall [28 cm] tall), pp. 100, illustrated with 51 colored maps, over 100 engravings and a colored "Clocks of the World" table. Volume with covers worn, cracks to gutters, binding loose, mild soil and staining throughout text, a few pencil marks to endpapers and p.o. name at top corner of upper board. Complete with all historic maps and scarce thus. The 1862 Montreal edition of Lovell's General Geography (Sitwell : {1861} (03) ; noting the {1861} (01) and 1861 (02) editions as having just pp. 72) has many differences from the 1861 Montreal edition of Lovell's General Geography, including : title page with "F.R.G.S." [Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society] added after the authors name ; "And Sold by all Booksellers" replacing "And Sold by R. & A. Miller" and "1862." replacing "1861" at foot of title page ; also added to the foot of the copyright page entry is "... ; and entered at Stationers' Hall, London." (assume for extended copyrights) - also lacks the pp. 11, (12) of "Opinions on Lovell's General Geography." found at the rear of the 1861 Montreal edition. Ads on the back cover of this 1862 edition are dated 1861, as is the copyright page, Prefatory Notice and the paste-down publisher's ads on the ffep. An unusual U.S. flag is printed on the front cover, having just the founding Thirteen Colonies represented by both stars and stripes, and with the flag printed in a reversed fashion. This 1862 edition is also seemingly a work in progress by a publisher who was likely a Southern sympathizer ("... in 1867 John Lovell gave refuge in his home to Jefferson Davis, exiled President of the Confederated Southern States" lovell dot ca & thecanadianencyclopedia dot ca) struggling to keep up with all the geopolitical changes then happening south of the border. Some American Civil War changes to the text include : updated US population stats - recording 35,243 less "free" citizens than in the 1861 figures - with the "slave" population remaining the same, Baltimore's population is shown reduced by 1,600, possibly due to war losses ; an early mention of the state "Kanawha" in that it is shown as "proposed" on p. 37 and "Richmond, Cap. of S. Confed." is also printed beside the state of Virginia's entry. The map containing Virginia had not yet been updated to reflect the changes. "Kanawha was a proposed name for the 39 counties which later became the main body of the U.S. state of West Virginia .... West Virginia was formally admitted to the Union on June 20, 1863" wiki. Also, on p. 19 is a colored pre-treaty map titled "British Columbia and the N. W. Indian Territories" (colored to show the aprox. area for Treaties 1-7) with multiple information points and questions about the Territories printed within the text. Interesting mapping in this uncommon Geography, published during a time of great upheavel and change in continental North America.

        MADAME DE STAEL AND THE GRAND-DUCHESS LOUISE. A Selection from the Unpublished Correspondence of Madame de Stael and the Grand-Duchess Louise of Saxe-Weimar, from 1800 to 1817. Together with a Letter to Bonaparte, First Consul; and Another to Napoleon, Emperor.; By the Author of "Souvenirs of Madame Recamier."

      London: Saunders, Otley, and Co, 1862. 8vo; xxiii, 223 pp. Bound by Riviere & Son in green calf, with gilt-decorated spine and five raised bands, gilt borders, all edges gilt. A very good copy. With tipped-in autograph letter dated 8 August 1825 from French writer and politician Benjamin Constant to poet Maurice de Guerin. An interesting association of a literary and political salon in 19th-century France. Amelie Lenormant was the niece and adopted daughter of Juliette Recamier, the great friend of Madame de Stael. Henri-Benjamin Constant de Rebecque (1767-1830) was a French political philosopher and intimate of Madame de Stael. Their collaboration made them a fierce intellectual pair. Constant was also the author of one novel --"Adolphe" -- a work in the sentimental tradition about a young man's disastrous love affair with an older mistress. French poet Maurice de Guerin (1810-1839) was probably more celebrated for his prose than his poetry. Its charm arises from de Guerin's absorbing passion for nature. According to Sainte-Beuve "no French poet or painter has rendered so well the feeling for nature -- the feeling not so much for details as for the ensemble and the divine universality, the feeling for the origin of things and the sovereign principle of life."
