        The President, General McClellan and Suite on the Battle-Field of Antietam

      Albumen silver print (7 x 9 in.), original printed mount with neat identifications of the figures in pencil. Surface lightly cleaned, mount trimmed at edge. A handsome example with the original printed Brady mount with title, copyright notice, "Gardner, Photographer," "M. B. Brady, Publisher," and date October 3, 1862. This photograph of Lincoln at Antietam is one of the best-known images of the Civil War. The Battle of Antietam, fought on September 17, 1862, was the bloodiest single-day battle in American history. The Confederate withdrawal was sufficiently heartening for Lincoln to announce his Emancipation Proclamation, which had been withheld awaiting a victory. Two weeks later Lincoln came to survey the Maryland battlefield, to see the troops, and to confront George McClellan, commander of the Army of the Potomac, who had failed to pursue Lee's army. Soon after the engagement, Alexander Gardner and other photographers working for Mathew Brady came to the battlefield, capturing the carnage in dozens of photographs and then documenting Abraham Lincoln's tour of the battlefield on October 3. In an unprecedented exhibition, Mathew Brady displayed Gardner's Antietam photographs in New York. "Mr. Brady has done something to bring home to us the terrible reality and earnestness of war. If he has not brought bodies and laid them in our dooryards and along the streets, he has done something very like it. At the door of his gallery hangs a little placard, 'The Dead of Antietam ...'" (New York Times, October 20, 1862). Not long after Brady's Antietam exhibition, Gardner struck out on his own, establishing his own gallery in Washington. Lincoln would sit for him more than any other photographer. The photograph shows, from left to right: Colonel Delos B. Sacket, Captain George Monteith, Lieutenant Colonel Nelson B. Sweitzer, General George W. Morell, Colonel Alexander S. Webb (Chief of Staff, 5th Corps), General George B. McClellan, Scout Adams, Dr. Jonathan Letterman (Army Medical Director), unidentified soldier, President Abraham Lincoln, Colonel Henry J. Hunt, General Fitz-John Porter, Joseph C. G. Kennedy, Colonel Frederick T. Locke, General Andrew A. Humphreys, and Captain George Armstrong Custer (Ostendorf p. 107). This is a classic photograph of Abraham Lincoln with the troops in the field, bearing the imprints of Mathew Brady and Alexander Gardner, the two most important figures in Civil War photography.

        An extraordinary collection of photographs of Central Park by its first official photographer

      Pioneering photographs of Central Park. One of the earliest photographers to work in New York, Victor Prevost (1820-1881) studied photography in France under Paul Delaroche and with Gustave Le Gray. In 1850 Prevost came to New York and established a studio at Broadway and Bleecker. He achieved limited commercial success, giving up photography as a career in 1857. Prevost continued to take photographs of major construction projects in New York City, the most important of which are his images of the new Central Park. These images are among the earliest extant photographs of the construction of Central Park. The Olmsted-Vaux plan was accepted in 1858, and work began at once, but it was not until the 1870s that the immense project was completed. As a result, these very early photographs present an unfamiliar view of the park, with immature plantings, temporary structures, worker housing, all without the towering buildings that figure prominently in later images. Three of the photographs are signed in the negative and one features the photographer's ink signature on the mount. All bear the photographer's blindstamp on the mount. Each image is described and dated in pencil on the verso. The collection comprises: 1. Veranda, Terrace, and Bell Tower (Aug 30, 1862) signed and dated 1862 by Prevost on the mount 2. Self-Portrait of the Photographer at CP (Sept 10, 1862) [actually Jacob Wrey Mould, who designed by of the park's most notable landmarks and architectural details] 3. Terrace Steps (Sept 11, 1862) 4. Pine Bank Arch. Bridge Near 8th Ave (Aug 17, 1862) 5. Landing (Oct 15th 1862) 6. Summer House from West Side ie 6th Ave (Sept 22, 1862) 7. Arsenal from 6th Ave West Side (August 13, 1862) 8. Summer House East from 8th Ave (August 28, 1862) 9. [no caption:] Summer House East from 8th Ave. 10. [no caption:] Buried pipes, with barrels, cranes, and framing VERY RARE. The principal institutional holdings of Prevost photographs are at the George Eastman House, the Museum of the City of New York, and the New York Historical Society, and to a lesser extent, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Smithsonian. Apart from their exposure at the Metropolitan Museum of Art show in 2003, Prevost's work remains largely unknown to the collecting public, a reflection of its great rarity in the market. Julie Mellby, "Victor Prevost: Painter, Lithographer, Photographer," History of Photography 35 (2011). 10 albumen photographs (approx. 51⁄4 x 51⁄4 in.), mounted, three signed in the negative and one signed by Prevost on the mount. Mounts foxed and stained, minor foxing and fading to prints, but generally the images are in excellent condition with strong tones.

        Photographs of the Holy Land comprising the following volumes: [I:] Sinai and Palestine; [II:] Lower Egypt, Thebes, and the Pyramids; [III:] Upper Egypt and Ethiopia.

      London, Glasgow, and Edinburgh: William MacKenzie, 1862 A handsome set of Frith's photographs. This edition's gold-toned photographs are preferred over the earlier editions for their "stronger quality" (Gernsheim). These "lavishly produced volumes of image and text, offered by subscription, were intended for a cultured, well-educated audience" (Hannavy). In 1856-58, Francis Frith made two expeditions, first to Egypt and then to Palestine, to photograph the great sites of antiquity, preserving the views for future generations and making them accessible to people around the world. Working with volatile chemicals and cumbersome apparatus in inhospitable conditions, Frith developed most of his plates in tombs, temples, and caves. For Frith, photography was destined to rank with other pictorial arts and even to surpass them, because at its heart was "its essential truthfulness of outline, and to a considerable extent, of perspective and light, and shade." Frith's books "proved immensely popular, [their] combination of remarkable photographic views with Frith's first-hand written account providing a surrogate tour of the Near East for Victorian tourists and would-be tourists alike" (Hannavy). These albums contain some of Frith's finest photographs, including the series of panoramic views of Jerusalem, the Sphinx and Great Pyramid of Giza, Colossal Figure at Abou Simbel, Karnak, the Pool of Hezekiah, the Thebes Entrance to the Great Temple Luxor, the Osiridae Pillars and Great Fallen Colossus, and many others. They encompass spectacular views of Jerusalem (among the earliest images of the ancient city still obtainable), Cairo, the pyramids at Giza, Philae, and other views of now-lost or decayed sites in Egypt, as well as biblical sites in Palestine including the Dead Sea, Gaza, Damascus, and other areas of what is now the modern state of Israel. These magnificent photographs provide a permanent record of lost or deteriorating places and monuments that are central to human history.Three volumes. Folio. Original green cloth, gilt-lettered, rebacked in green morocco, a.e.g. 111 albumen photographs (37 in each volume), each approx. 6 1/2 x 9 inches, mounted. Most signed in the negative and with the occasional date 1857. Foxing to mounts, infrequently affecting images, occasional fading to prints. The photographs are generally in very good condition with rich tones and good contrast.

        On Bandaging, and Other Operations of Minor Surgery

      Philadelphia: Blanchard and Lea, 1862. New edition. Binding slightly rubbed; occasional pale spotting/From the Collection of Allan B. Kirsner, M.D. 8vo. 383 pp. Wood-engraved illustrations in text. Original sheep, black morocco lettering-piece. Provenance: T. J. Adams (early inkstamp and inscriptions on flyleaves). A fine copy of this Civil War-era surgical manual by the father of painter John Singer Sargent, revised from the 1848 first edition by the addition of a chapter on military surgery by W. F. Atlee. Also with a fine Civil War provenance, inscribed at Camp Shanks in Indianapolis, 27 February 1864, where the 119th Infantry (or 7th Cavalry) rendezvoused under John P. C. Shanks. A severe battle between the 119th and the enemy had taken place in Okalona, Mississippi just 5 days before Adams's inscription. The Preface states: "The merits of this work as a handy and convenient manual for reference in the field and hospital, have induced the publishers to add to it a chapter (the Ninth) on Gunshot Wounds, and such other subjects peculiar to Military Surgery as seemed requisite to adapt it more thoroughly to the wants of Army Surgeons. Owing to the absence of the Author in Europe, this has been prepared by Dr. W. F. Atlee. Philadelphia, March, 1862." See Rutkow, The History of Surgery in the United States, GS25 (first edition).

        Civil War Original Telegraph Halleck To McClellan re: Grant etc SIGNED

      General Henry Wagner Hallack, St. Louis 1862 - An ORIGINAL TELEGRAPH FORM WRITTEN OUT AND SIGNED BY H. W. HALLECK for sending to GENERAL GEORGE MCCLELLAN and MENTIONING GENERAL GRANT, dated February 16, 186_ on the recto and dated February 16 1862 in another hand on the verso. The telegraph is written entirely in Halleck's hand (in pencil), shows that it was sent from St. Louis, and states: ["To] G B McLellan Washin Every Thing looks well, Grant says we can keep them in till mortar boats arrive. Comm. Foote will immediately return from Cairo with two more gun boats. Troops are moving very rapidly to Fort Donaldson. H. W. Halleck." Halleck wrote and sent the Telegraph shortly before he was recalled to Washington to serve as President Lincoln's General-in-Chief. Given the text of the Telegraph, we believe it to relate to the highly-important Mississippi River Campaigns conducted by the Union against the Rebels. The paper is in about Very Good condition with some edge wear and a tear from the top to the bottom -- which tear has been repaired on the sheet's verso. RARE AND NOTABLE.

        Wanderings Among the Falashas in Abyssinia; Together with a Description of the Country and its Various Inhabitants. Illustrated by a Map and Twenty Engravings of Scenes and Persons, Taken on the Spot

      Wertheim, MacIntosh, and Hunt, London 1862 - viii, 322 p. 22 cm. Fold-out map, 8 full-page tinted engravings, and 12 b&w in-text illustrations. Bound in half leather with marbled boards, endpapers and text block edges. Repairs to spine ends and corners. Bookplate on front pastedown. Foxing to first and last pages and three brown streaks on title page. May have been tissue guard, now missing, over frontispiece. Henry Aaron Stern (1820 - 1885) was a Jewish-born Anglican missionary who preached to Jews in Abyssinia. At first King Tewodros II of Ethiopia welcomed him, but, after various slights by Lord John Russell of the British Foreign Office and others, the king's attitude to the British changed. Stern was summoned to appear before the king in October 1863, after which Stern was beaten and imprisoned along with his assistant and two government representatives. Stern's situation was made more difficult by the fact that the king considered some the material in this book insulting, such as the statement that the king's mother was a kosso vendor. These circumstances led to the 1868 British Expedition to Abyssinia, one of the most expensive rescue missions in history. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Stoglav [The Stoglav, i.e. proceedings of the 1551 Synod]

      Kazan': V Tipografii Gubernskogo Pravleniia, 1862. Octavo (23 × 14.5 cm). Contemporary quarter-calf with title to spine; red marbled paper boards; VII, 438, II pp. Book plate and shelf label of the Imperial Nikolaevsky Orphanage library in Gatchina, dissolved after the 1917 Revolution, and a later private bookplate. Boards lightly rubbed; light foxing throughout; a touch musty; good or better. First printed appearance in Russia of the full text of the "Stoglav" (literally: "hundred chapters"), which had previously only been printed in exile in a very small print run (London, 1860). In 1551, Ivan the Terrible "summoned a synod of the Russian Church to discuss the ritual practices that had grown up in Russia which did not conform with those of the Greek Church. The decrees issued by the Synod, known as the Stoglav, rule that they were all correct. This unilaterial decision shocked many of the Orthodox. The monks of Athos protested and the Russian monks there regarded the decisions of the synods as invalid" (Runciman, The Great Church in Captivity, p. 329). The text of the Stoglav takes the form of a series of questions by the Tsar, followed by the answers of the Orthodox clergy. It formed the basic set of rules of day-to-day life of the Muscovite clergy and was circulated through numerous manuscript copies. Its content touched not only questions of Church dogma, but also of socio-economic and political concern. A number of the decisions of the Stoglav were revised by a council convened in 1666-1667, especially those which concerned the practices of the Old Believers, such as the two-finger sign of the cross. The first printed edition of the text appeared in London in 1860 and, according to the preface in the Kazan' edition, it was full of textual errors and "rarer than the manuscripts of the Stoglav themselves" (VI). This new edition is based on a number of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century copies. Although the text is now generally considered to be an authentic document approved by the members of the Synod, it was long thought to be a later forgery or, at least, a falsification by one of the attendants. The editors of the present edition also stress the inauthenticity of the Stoglav, while insisting on its value for studying the history of the Orthodox Church. Quite scarce, with KVK, OCLC only showing the copies at Harvard and Helsinki University.

At the time it was the third largest known earthquake in the world and has been estimated to have been of magnitude 6.9 on the Richter Scale. Mallet, with letters of support from Charles Lyell and Charles Darwin, petitioned the Royal Society and received a grant of £150 to go to Padula and record at first hand the devastation. The resulting report was presented to the Royal Society as the Report on the Great Neapolitan Earthquake of 1857. It was a major scientific work and made great use of the then new research tool of photography to record the devastation caused by the earthquake. In 1862, he published the "Great Neapolitan Earthquake of 1857: The First Principles of Observational Seismology in two volumes; he brought forward evidence to show that the depth below the Earth's surface, from where the impulse of the Neapolitan earthquake originated, was about 89 geographical miles. Robert Mallet (1810-1881) war ein irischer Geophysiker, Bauingenieur und Erfinder, der sich durch seine Arbeit auf dem Gebiet der Erdbebenforschung auszeichnete. Er wird manchmal als Vater der Seismologie bezeichnet, und ihm wird der Begriff Seismologie‘ zugeschrieben, ebenso wie andere verwandte Fachbegriffe, die er in seinen Arbeiten gebrauchte, so etwa geht auch die Bezeichnung Epizentrum‘ auf ihn zurück.

First edition of this striking work: "l'ouvrage est tres rare et c'est l'un des plus beaux sur les differents costumes des peuplades de la Russie" (Colas). A fresh example in original binding. Dedicated to Alexander II and published to commemorate the thousand year jubilee of the Russian Empire (commencing with the founding of Novgorod by the three Rus princes, Rurik, Sineus and Truvor), Pauly's book is suitably magnificent in size and scope, with plates of a consistently high artistic and technical quality. Descriptions of the inhabitants of the Empire are divided into parts concerning the Indo-Europeans, the Caucasians, the Ural-Altai nations and the eastern Siberians, while the short final section covers the 'peuples de l'Amerique russe'. The text is one of the most scholarly of the period. These qualities were recognised immediately after publication: "Cet important ouvrage a été rédigé sur les matériaux que possède la Société géographique impériale de Russie et sur les documents des ministères et administrations de l'État. Il est précédé d'une introduction de M. Ch. de Baer, exposant ce qu'était dans le passé et ce qu'est aujourd'hui la science ethnographique. Le savant travail de M. de Pauly est une description étendue et complète de l'état actuel et des traits caractéristiques de tous les peuples de l'empire russe, classée méthodiquement d'après l'origine de ces peuples et les limites géographiques.

        Wanderings Among the Falashas in Abyssinia; Together with a Description of the Country and its Various Inhabitants. Illustrated by a Map and Twenty Engravings of Scenes and Persons, Taken on the Spot

      London: Wertheim, MacIntosh, and Hunt, 1862. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. viii, 322 p. 22 cm. Fold-out map, 8 full-page tinted engravings, and 12 b&w in-text illustrations. Bound in half leather with marbled boards, endpapers and text block edges. Repairs to spine ends and corners. Bookplate on front pastedown. Foxing to first and last pages and three brown streaks on title page. May have been tissue guard, now missing, over frontispiece. Henry Aaron Stern (1820 - 1885) was a Jewish-born Anglican missionary who preached to Jews in Abyssinia. At first King Tewodros II of Ethiopia welcomed him, but, after various slights by Lord John Russell of the British Foreign Office and others, the king's attitude to the British changed. Stern was summoned to appear before the king in October 1863, after which Stern was beaten and imprisoned along with his assistant and two government representatives. Stern's situation was made more difficult by the fact that the king considered some the material in this book insulting, such as the statement that the king's mother was a kosso vendor. These circumstances led to the 1868 British Expedition to Abyssinia, one of the most expensive rescue missions in history.

A few leaves weakly foxed otherwise well-preserved, rebacked copy with coloured labels and richly gilt on spines, wide margins. With handwritten name on flyleaves. Bindings nicely restored. * Vols. 1-3 in second edition.Edward Gibbo [1737-1794] was an English historian, writer and Member of Parliament. This, his most important work, was first published in six volumes between 1776 and 1788 and is known for the quality and irony of its prose, its use of primary sources, and its open criticism of organised religion. Yet his works are considered outdated today as Edward Gibbon's central thesis, that Rome fell due to embracing Christianity, is no longer accepted in academia today. [Wikipedia].
