        Oeuvres

      One folding lithographed plate in Vol. IV. Seven vols. Large 4to, a fine prize binding of cont. blue morocco, sides elaborately decorated in gilt, spines richly gilt, a.e.g., upper cover of Vol. I stamped in gilt "Académie des Sciences. Prix fondé par Mme la Mise de Laplace pour le 1er Elève sortant de l'École Polytechnique 1862. M. Matrot Adolphe. Né le 9 Juillet 1841 à Paris," all other covers stamped in gilt in center with the royal arms of the Académie des Sciences. Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1843-47. First edition of the collected works of Laplace, luxuriously produced at the initiative of Laplace's widow and financed by King Louis Philippe's government. Contained here are Laplace's epoch-making works on astrophysics, mathematics and probability theory. The first five volumes are taken up by Traité de Mécanique Céleste, the foundation of modern theoretical astronomy. It has been called "the eighteenth-century Almagest" and "a sequel to Newton's Principia" (Horblit 63). Volume Six contains his Exposition du Systeme du Monde, one of the most successful popularizations of science ever composed. It is Laplace's resumé of current astronomical understanding. The final and thickest volume combines the Essai Philosophique sur les Probabilités with the Théorie analytique des Probabilités, the introduction to Laplace's groundbreaking masterpiece on probability theory. "The Essai has certainly had a longer life and almost certainly a larger number of readers than any of Laplace's other writings. The reason for its continuing - indeed, its growing - success has clearly been the importance that probability, statistics, and stochastic analysis have increasingly assumed in science, social science, and philosophy of science."-D.S.B. Adolphe Matrot (1841-96), became a high official in the French national railroad company. A fine and handsome set.

        Pocket Diary for 1862. Containing a Blank Space for Every Day in the Year, Cash Account, Memoranda, &c.: 1862 Civil War Union Soldier and Musician Uriah Johnson's Manuscript Diary: Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps, 6th Regiment Band [with] Two Ambrotypes, Four CDVs, and One Glass Plate Photographic Negative

      Flexible leather binding with leather closure over fore-edge, cloth protective bands designed to cover top and bottom page ridges affixed to rear endpaper, all edges gilt. A diary bought in Camp Pierpont, Virginia in 1862 by Uriah Johnson, a member of the band for the sixth regiment of the Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps. He enlisted at the age of 17, on August 27th, 1861 and served for three years in several different companies until his final discharge on June 13th, 1865, at which time he was a 2nd lieutenant. He was present at the Siege of Richmond and other important engagements. Also included: two ambrotypes (one of the diaries; another of him and a relative, possibly his brother); cartes-de-visite of Abraham Lincoln, Uriah Johnson's grandfather (labeled in pencil on reverse), Mollie (labeled in pencil on front edge), and Uriah Johnson (this last mounted on a piece of cardstock); and a glass plate photographic negative. One ambrotype is housed in a wooden case with a clasp, the other is in one half of a similar case (the other half is not present).Manuscript diaries from the American Civil War are scarce, and each shines a unique light on the conflict. This example provides a charmingly innocent account of events, which underscores how young and inexperienced many of the soldiers fighting in the American Civil War were. There are also detailed accounts of day-to-day activities. The first passage displays the sort of optimism one would expect from a young man who volunteered: 'In Camp Pierpont Virginia. A beautiful day nice and warm. Camp very quiet more so than usual. Still considerable talk about the Battle of Drainsville is heard wherever we got that was the first Union victory on the Potomac, and the Boys all feel proud of it...' In the second week of January are five consecutive entries in which Johnson explains that soldiers are expecting their pay, which finally arrived on January 11, 1862: 'Received our pay $42.50 for two months service November and December.' He was quick to put it to use: 'Bought lumber to build winter quarters of a farmer paid him 2 cents a foot for boards' (Jan. 13). Other passages provide an immediacy not found in many accounts of the war: 'We are living without tents and expecting an attack every minute...' (March 11), and Johnson relays news as it is received by the camp: 'We have cheering news that Mannassas is evacuated and our forces now have possesion of the strongest Rebel hold'.One memoranda page provides a firsthand account of the Battle of Drainsville on December 20, 1862: 'The Battle of Drainsville was fought Dec the 20th 1862. Our loss was eight killed while that of the rebels is suposed as near as can be asertained one hundred. The number of the killed in our Regiment was three and fourteen wounded two severely the remaining slightly.' Diarist's name on front and rear endpapers, entries on daily diary pages, nearly all written in from January 1, 1862 to June 28, 1862, with notes on two other daily pages (seemingly chosen at random), a couple memoranda pages, and the 'summary of cash account' page, manuscript record of service (in the author's hand, so likely something he wrote for personal reference) laid in. A book curse is written on the front free endpaper: 'Steal not this book my honest friend for fear the gallows may be your end.' 'Published Annually for the Trade', 1862. Good/No Jacket.

Old vertical fold lines, a few small chips at edges, minor dust soiling. Very good. A group of six pencil sketches, two with watercolor shadowing, drawn by an unnamed artist for HARPER'S WEEKLY.

The four larger drawings depict scenes of various Union army activities in Virginia during the early part of the war. All were submitted as potential accompaniments for articles in the periodical, which is justly known for the copious Civil War illustrations that supplemented its text. A full list is as follows: 1) Pencil sketch, 5 x 10 inches, of soldiers of on a country road, captioned: "On the March to Manassas. Union pickets approaching the deserted earthwork at Centerville Va.," with the reverse reading, "I send another package of sketches by same mail". 2) Pencil and watercolor sketch, 6 x 10 inches, of soldiers outside a barn and farmhouse, captioned "Near Falls Church. Picket Guard of Conn. 2nd". 3) Pencil sketch, 4 x 5 1/2 inches, of troops carrying shovels, captioned on verso: "Leaving the trenches. 'On the Road' & c. The men in every variety of costume some in under shirt & drawers & c." 4) Pencil sketch, 7 x 5 1/2 inches, of a field with fortifications and a large army camp in the background, captioned: "... com'd'd by Col. John Fuller. [vi]ew of the Enemy's old fortifications." 5) Pencil and watercolor sketch, 3 1/4 x 6 inches, of supply wagon and encampment, captioned on verso: "'On the road' Lager Bier Wagon". 6) Pencil sketch, 8 x 10 1/4 inches, of soldiers standing near recent construction of long wooden sheds, captioned on verso: "Stables being Erected for Cavalry"

        The Life And Adventures Of Robinson Crusoe, Of York, Mariner.

      London - Griffin, Bohn, And Company, 1862 Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. A beautifully illustrated Victorian edition of Robinson Crusoe, attractively presented in afull calf Zaehnsdorf binding. The first Robinson Crusoe storywas originally published anonymously in 1719as the memoir of its protagonist, leading many to believe that it was a true chronicle. It tells the story of a castaway who spends thirty years on a tropical island, encountering cannibals, mutineers, and other perils. The Robinson Crusoe stories taken as a whole are one of the most popular fictional works in Western literature. By the end of the nineteenth century no book had more editions, spin-offs, or translations. There are estimated to have been more than 700 alternative versions, including those for children. The plates of illustrations by Zwecker in this copy have been hand coloured. Condition: In a full calf Zaehnsdorf binding, with gilt borders and gilt detailing to the spine. Externally smart, with just a little marking to the boards. Internally, the first few pages are lightly spotted. Otherwise, however, clean and bright, and firmly bound. Overall: NEAR FINE.

        [PENCIL SKETCH OF IUKA, MISSISSIPPI, DRAWN FOR HARPER'S WEEKLY, 1862]

      [Iuka, Ms, 1862. Pencil sketch, with ink caption, 5 1/4 x 9 inches. Matted. Old central vertical fold, with ink caption at foot of image and twelve-line description on verso. Near fine. A well-executed pencil sketch of Iuka, Ms., drawn after the capture of the town by Union troops under General William Rosecrans, which served as the basis for an engraving that appeared in the October 4, 1862, issue of HARPER's WEEKLY. A Union soldier rides across the foreground, with the Tennessee River and a rail bridge on the Memphis & Charlestown Railroad line behind him. In the center background are the building of the Iuka Springs House, the waters of which the verso caption claims "possess many medical qualities." The battle of Iuka took place on September 19, 1862, in which smaller elements from the southern forces of both sides sought to prevent one another from reinforcing larger armies to the north in Tennessee under the command of Generals Braxton Bragg and Don Carlos Buell.

      London: R.

I) – [?]Henry Charles Sturt (1795-1866, 'Crichel' inkstamps on upper pastedowns of both vols; believed to be a kinsman of the soldier and Australian explorer Charles Sturt, 1795-1869).First edition, presumed first binding. A 'detailed description of the South Eastern part of Australia' (Ferguson), based on Jessop's travels in the late 1850s and early 1860s. 'In the twenty-fourth chapter of the second volume Jessop records in interesting and accurate detail an early expedition of one Ernest Giles whom the author met at Wilpena where Giles had stopped on his homeward trip from the north. This expedition [.] was from Adelaide to the north in search of new pastoral land. It does not appear to be elsewhere recorded and dates at least ten years before Giles's career became a matter of public record. Jessop supplies no precise date, but from the context it is clear that the expedition took place in the first half of 1859. [.] Constituting the first appearance in print of the last of the great Australian explorers, it is well worth adding to an exploration library' (Wantrup, pp. 266-267).Ferguson records a variant, possibly remainder, binding in blue cloth, without the kangaroo rat blocked in gilt on the upper boards, and, due to slow sales, the work was reissued in a number of forms over the following years.Ferguson 10 940.

        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.= 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]

        Victorian Photo Album Leaves (18 in all)

      1862 - I found this collection of photographs a number of years ago, mostly for the way that some of the decorated panels were not outfitted with photographs. The photographs were made in the early 1860s (one is dated 1862) and all of the embellishments and decorations I take it were made by hand at the same time. Early photo albums are not common. Each sheet measures about 16"x 16". Good condition. Set of 18 images, all ca. early 1860's so far as I can tell.

Old vertical fold lines, a few small chips at edges, minor dust soiling. Very good. A group of six pencil sketches, two with watercolor shadowing, drawn by an unnamed artist for HARPER'S WEEKLY. Two of the smaller images form the basis for engravings in the "On the Road from Washington to Alexandria" collage which appeared in the June 22, 1861, issue. The four larger drawings depict scenes of various Union army activities in Virginia during the early part of the war. All were submitted as potential accompaniments for articles in the periodical, which is justly known for the copious Civil War illustrations that supplemented its text. A full list is as follows: 1) Pencil sketch, 5 x 10 inches, of soldiers of on a country road, captioned: "On the March to Manassas. Union pickets approaching the deserted earthwork at Centerville Va.," with the reverse reading, "I send another package of sketches by same mail". 2) Pencil and watercolor sketch, 6 x 10 inches, of soldiers outside a barn and farmhouse, captioned "Near Falls Church. Picket Guard of Conn. 2nd". 3) Pencil sketch, 4 x 5 1/2 inches, of troops carrying shovels, captioned on verso: "Leaving the trenches. 'On the Road' & c.

        Pocket Diary for 1862. Containing a Blank Space for Every Day in the Year, Cash Account, Memoranda, &c.: 1862 Civil War Union Soldier and Musician Uriah Johnson's Manuscript Diary: Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps, 6th Regiment Band [with] Two Ambrotypes, Four CDVs, and One Glass Plate Photographic Negative

      Flexible leather binding with leather closure over fore-edge, cloth protective bands designed to cover top and bottom page ridges affixed to rear endpaper, all edges gilt. A diary bought in Camp Pierpont, Virginia in 1862 by Uriah Johnson, a member of the band for the sixth regiment of the Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps. He enlisted at the age of 17, on August 27th, 1861 and served for three years in several different companies until his final discharge on June 13th, 1865, at which time he was a 2nd lieutenant. He was present at the Siege of Richmond and other important engagements. Also included: two ambrotypes (one of the diaries; another of him and a relative, possibly his brother); cartes-de-visite of Abraham Lincoln, Uriah Johnson's grandfather (labeled in pencil on reverse), Mollie (labeled in pencil on front edge), and Uriah Johnson (this last mounted on a piece of cardstock); and a glass plate photographic negative. One ambrotype is housed in a wooden case with a clasp, the other is in one half of a similar case (the other half is not present).Manuscript diaries from the American Civil War are scarce, and each shines a unique light on the conflict. This example provides a charmingly innocent account of events, which underscores how young and inexperienced many of the soldiers fighting in the American Civil War were. There are also detailed accounts of day-to-day activities. The first passage displays the sort of optimism one would expect from a young man who volunteered: 'In Camp Pierpont Virginia. A beautiful day nice and warm. Camp very quiet more so than usual. Still considerable talk about the Battle of Drainsville is heard wherever we got that was the first Union victory on the Potomac, and the Boys all feel proud of it...' In the second week of January are five consecutive entries in which Johnson explains that soldiers are expecting their pay, which finally arrived on January 11, 1862: 'Received our pay $42.50 for two months service November and December.' He was quick to put it to use: 'Bought lumber to build winter quarters of a farmer paid him 2 cents a foot for boards' (Jan. 13). Other passages provide an immediacy not found in many accounts of the war: 'We are living without tents and expecting an attack every minute...' (March 11), and Johnson relays news as it is received by the camp: 'We have cheering news that Mannassas is evacuated and our forces now have possesion of the strongest Rebel hold'.One memoranda page provides a firsthand account of the Battle of Drainsville on December 20, 1862: 'The Battle of Drainsville was fought Dec the 20th 1862. Our loss was eight killed while that of the rebels is suposed as near as can be asertained one hundred. The number of the killed in our Regiment was three and fourteen wounded two severely the remaining slightly.' Diarist's name on front and rear endpapers, entries on daily diary pages, nearly all written in from January 1, 1862 to June 28, 1862, with notes on two other daily pages (seemingly chosen at random), a couple memoranda pages, and the 'summary of cash account' page, manuscript record of service (in the author's hand, so likely something he wrote for personal reference) laid in. A book curse is written on the front free endpaper: 'Steal not this book my honest friend for fear the gallows may be your end.' 'Published Annually for the Trade', 1862. Good/No Jacket.

        Trigonometrical Survey of a part of Mesopotamia. From Hillah to the Ruins of Niffer with the rivers Euphrates and Tigris. London, J. & C. Walker, 1862.

      1862. 101 x 71 cm. Constant ratio linear horizontal scale, ca. 1:150,000. Signed by Collingwood. Impressive, early, large-scale map of central Iraq, showing the area between Al Hillah (100 km south of Baghdad) to the ruins of the ancient Sumerian city of Nippur. Indicates sand hills, canals, old river beds, tracks, cultivated areas. Includes inset plans and views of Tel Ibrahim, Zibbleyeh, Nejmi, Niffer, and the Niffer Mounds. - Some paper defects and edge damage restored. Rare; copies are known in no more than two public collections (Bodleian; British Library). Personal copy of the cartographer William Collingwood, signed by himself as well as by Cdr. W. B. Selby, R.I.N. - Selby began his distinguished surveying career in 1837 when, as a midshipman, he embarked on the expedition first to lay navigation buoys in the mouths of the Indus River and then to chart some coastal areas in the Horn of Africa. By 1846 he was back working off the mouth of the Indus, having made his reputation in Mesopotamia (in 1840-41), and thereafter achieved considerable acclaim for his numerous other surveys, including those during the military expedition to Persia in 1856, before returning to England at the end of 1862. He was succeeded as Surveyor of Mesopotamia by his protégé, Lt. William Collingwood (a distant cousin of the Admiral), who had already done much valuable work in the region, including the large-scale, though surreptitious, mapping of Baghdad in 1855, described by him as follows: "The survey of the city of Baghdad was completed entirely by myself and under very unpleasant restrictions [...] The Turkish Government were not to know anything about it [...] and I was left to survey the town as best I could, and under such difficulties that at times I had to note bearings and paces all over my white shirt, where best I could get the pencil at the time [...]". During this same expedition, Collingwood also surveyed the Shatt-ul-Arab, the city of Bussorah (also by stealth) and much of the country between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, and he was undoubtedly one of the most gifted and productive R.I.N. surveyors of his day.
