        Flindersland and Sturtland; or, The Inside and Outside of Australia.

      London: R. Clay, Son, and Taylor for Richard Bentley, 1862. - 2 volumes, 8vo (199 x 122mm), pp. I: viii, 289, [1 (blank)], [2 (blank l.)]; II: x, 322; a few light spots or marks; original blue cloth gilt, boards with borders blocked in blind, upper boards with central design of a kangaroo rat in gilt, spines lettered and decorated in gilt, mid-brown endpapers, uncut, many quires unopened; extremities lightly rubbed and bumped, cloth very lightly marked, short splits at ends of upper joint, nonetheless a very good, clean set; provenance: Upham & Beet, London (contemporary bookseller's ticket on upper pastedown of vol. 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.

        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.

        Victorian Seaweed Album

      New York: J.C. Riker, 1862. Victorian album showcasing over twenty preserved and pressed seaweed and algae specimens. The collection and classification of botanical samples was considered an edifying pursuit for women in the Victorian era, and the study of natural history served as an acceptable access point for women interested in scientific subjects. Seaweed specimens were particularly popular, creating a lively market for instructional books like Shirley Hibberd's The Seaweed Collector (1872). The album also contains a laid-in sheet of botanical samples bearing four notable personal annotations. The first specimen is captioned: "Taken from Aunt Lucy Lee's grave in Ridgefield Oct 3d 1859." Two others, collected on the same date, are identified as growing on the graves of "Uncle Aaron Lee" and "Charles Bradley Lee," while the final specimen is captioned: "Taken from my sister's grave, the same date Jane E Smith who died at the early age of two years." Genealogical records indicate that a Lucy Smith in Ridgefield, CT, married one Aaron Lee, a captain in the Revolutionary War. A compelling artifact of Victorian popular science and filial piety. Scrapbook album measuring 6 x 7.5 inches, contemporary full red sheep, elaborate gilt urn motif stamped in center of boards, triple-ruled border and elaborate cornerpieces in blind, spine ornamented in gilt floral pattern, all edges gilt, renewed endpapers. Green pictorial printed title page with hand-colored embossed flower, four pages embossed with images of flowers (one hand-colored), 15 specimens of seaweed and algae on tipped-in cards, eight additional seaweed specimens lying loose between pages, two samples of pressed flowers tipped in, six pressed leaves laid in, some evidence of lost samples. Two instances of penciled-in poems partially erased, pen and blue pencil ribbon sketch. Laid in is a single page featuring four annotated botanical samples from family gravesites, each hand-sewn onto the paper. Offsetting caused by specimens, rectangular portion of one leaf excised, expert restoration to binding.

Un frontespizio cromolitografico al primo vol., 4 antiporte cromolitografiche ai rispettivi volumi e complessive 161 tavole. incise su acciaio f.t. da vari artisti e da invenzione di vari (55 al primo, 26 al secondo di cui 14 sono carte geografiche della Terra Santa, 24 al terzo, 56 al quarto). Alcune firme di possesso del tempo. Una dedica in data 1922 all'occhietto del quarto vol. Restauri alla cuffia inferiore del primo vol. Qualche fioritura normale. Bell'esemplare. Edizione profusamente illustrata (rara a reperirsi completa, come nel nostro esemplare, di tutte le sue tavole) della classica traduzione dei testi biblici del Martini, fittamente annotata dallo stesso. Il testo è disposto su due colonne e, accanto al volgarizzamento martiniano, figura il testo biblico della Vulgata. Il Martini (Prato, 1720-Firenze, 1809), formatosi al Collegio Cicognini della sua città natale (lo stesso in cui studierà, oltre un secolo dopo, D'Annunzio), laureato in lettere a Pisa, preside della congregazione della basilica torinese di Superga su designazione di Carlo Emanuele III, abate di San Giacomo in Bessa, impresse la sua celebre traduzione della Bibbia su incarico del Cardinal Vittorio Amedeo delle Lanze, amico di Benedetto XIV, e la completò nel 1771, sotto il pontificato di Pio VI, che lo premiò, dieci anni dopo, con la nomina ad Arcivescovo di Firenze.

La versione martiniana fu condotta sulla base del testo greco dei Settanta; per i raffronti con le lingue semitiche originarie egli si valse della consulenza del rabbino di Firenze, Levi. Cfr. V.

        Les Martyrs ridicules Avec une préface de Charles Baudelaire

      Paris, Poulet-Malassis, 1862 In-12, demi-chagrin havane, dos à nerfs, tête dorée, non rogné, couv. conservées (Champs), XII pp. (préface), 350 pp. (y compris faux-titre et titre). Édition originale du premier livre de Léon Cladel et de la préface de douze pages très denses de Charles Baudelaire. Exemplaire enrichi du contrat de publication à compte d'auteur des Martyrs Ridicules, daté du 5 juin 1861, monté sur onglet. Ce document manuscrit, rédigé à l'encre par Poulet Malassis, signé par Léon Cladel et Poulet Malassis et de Broise, détaille le prix payé par l'auteur (500 francs réglables en deux fois), le tirage (500 exemplaires, dont 250 ex. remis brochés à l'auteur) et l'engagement pris par Cladel de régler les frais de livraison de ses exemplaires et les corrections d'auteur auxquelles son ouvrage aurait donné lieu sur présentation d'épreuves. Ex-libris d'Alfred Morin, gravé à l'eau-forte par Vallon. Bel exemplaire, pâle mouillure sur la couverture. Selon le témoignage de l'auteur, rapporté par sa fille Judith Cladel, Baudelaire aida à mettre en forme le roman, qui manquait de style et de syntaxe : "Huit mois durant, il daigna me pétrir de ses mains savantes et me rendre ductile et modéré, mois si dur de pâte et si violemment excessif..." (Maître & Disciple, Paris, 1951, cité par G. Oberlé dans Auguste Poulet-Malassis un imprimeur sur le Parnasse, 1996).

        3 eigenh. Briefe mit U. ("JBurckhardt"). Basel, 1862, 1864 und 1870.

      1862. Zusammen (3+1+3½ =) 7½ SS. auf 6 (= 2 Doppel-)Blatt. 4to und (qu.)-gr.-8vo. Zwei Briefe mit eh. Adresse. An den Kunsthistoriker Otto Mündler (1856-1888), u. a. über den schleppenden Absatz seines neuen Buches (1862), mit einer Empfehlung des Kunsthändlers Land (1864) und über Mündlers Beitrag zu Burckhardts "Cicerone" (1870): "[...] Mit meinem eigenen Buch verhält es sich leider nicht so wie Freund Lübke glaubt. Es ist eine traurige Thatsache, daß wir in Summe keine 200 Ex[em]p[lare] abgesetzt haben. Man kauft in Deutschland so gar nicht mehr. Ich hatte den mir eng befreundeten Verleger, der vom (reichhonorirten) Cicerone her noch nicht auf seinen Kosten ist, umsonst gewarnt, nicht über 500 drucken zu lassen; er hat 750 gedruckt u. behält nun das Surplus in Ballen im Magazin. Auf diese Erfahrung hin habe ich mich entschlossen, von der 'Kunst der Renaissance' nur ein Geripp auszuarbeiten, etwa 20 Bogen, und bei diesem Anlaß nur diejenigen Resultate mitzutheilen, die mir neu scheinen [...]" (5. I. 1862). - "[...] Gestern erhielt ich [...] die 'Beiträge zum Cicerone'. Das Vorwort, worin Sie meiner Arbeit (viel zu sehr im Guten) gedenken, haben [!] mich gerührt u. beschämt, und als ich mich nun in das Heft hineinlas und der enormen von mir einst in Verwegenheit geschossenen Böcke inne wurde, fand ich es für eine wahre Pflicht, mich darob gegen Sie bestmöglich zu entschuldigen. Der Cicerone wurde nämlich unternommen nicht nur von einer äußerst ungenügenden ästhetischen Basis aus, sondern auch unter sehr zweifelhaften Umständen und mit geringen Mitteln, in einem Augenblick da ich meine hiesige Anstellung verloren hatte und nicht recht wußte, was aus mir werden sollte. Er hat mir dann allerdings treulich geholfen und mir die Professur am eidg. Politechnicum zu Zürich eingetragen, sodaß ich ihm immer ein ehrendes Andenken schuldig bin [...]". - Der Br. v. 5. I. 1862 mit einem kleinen Ausschnitt auf Bl. 2 (Textverlust in drei Zeilen).

        Deux lettres autographes signées à Théodore Wyzema au sujet de ses derniers ouvrages

      1 page, 180 x 102 mm et 4 pages, 200 x 155 mm. RARES LETTRES AUTOGRAPHES adressées au critique d'art d'origine polonaise, pro- moteur du mouvement symboliste Teodor de Wyzewa (1862-1917). Ecrites durant l'été 1887, elles précèdent de quelques semaines le décès du poète. Laforgue, sans argent, tente de faire éditer son dernier ouvrage en prose : Berlin. Il rencontre Gustave de Malherbe, directeur des éditions Quantin grâce aux recomman- dations de Théodore Wyzema. "Mercredi, Mon bien cher ami, J'ai été ce matin chez Quantin. De Malherbe m'a reçu on ne peut plus aimablement. (Je vous dois encore cela). Il me donnera une réponse lundi. Figurez-vous que je n'ai rien reçu de Dujardin. Je n'y comprends rien. Il n'imagine pas les attentes de... Votre ami Jules Laforgue". "Vendredi, Mon cher ami,Vraiment vous m'avez donné le devoir de vous adresser de pareilles lettres. C'est sur votre recommandation que De Malheurve m'a dit à ma remise de mon manuscrit : " Le livre ne paraîtra qu'en octobre. Mais matériellement pour vous se sera comme si il paraissait aujourd'hui". Là-dessus, il m'a renvoyé à lundi. Le lundi il était content mais il fallait voir Mr May, et il m'a renvoyé à mercredi ; mercredi, je reçois une lettre me ren- voyant à aujourd'hui (une lettre) et aujourd'hui je n'ai rien reçu. Et aujourd'hui me tombe sur la tête tout ce qui nous tombe sur la tête un quinze de trimestre. Voici ce que je voulais vous dire. Il m'est impossible de désespérer de mon livre chez Quantin après les promesses de De Malherbe, j'aurai de l'argent de ce côté-là. Or vous avez en Rzewsky une relation facile à la détente. Eh bien ce n'est pas un emprunt que je voudrais faire auprès de lui mais un emprunt qui serait effacé dès que j'aurais touché chez De Malherbes, ou - en cas de malheur - j'espérais chez Lemerre. (Ce serait 380 à peu près dont j'aurais besoin) (...) Au revoir mon véritable et rare ami. Il y a des mois que songeant, impotent, ce que je pourrais faire pour vous et je n'ai encore trouvé que cette chose palote que je n'ai jamais depuis le temps pensé à vous dire : Vous dédier les nouvelles que Dujardin éditera. Cette proposition aboutit à une absence de paquet. Au revoir votre Jules Laforgue." TRES BEL ENSEMBLE.

"Les grandes compositions de Gustave DORE, forment une suite saisissante, fantastique et sinistre, où le dessinateur, entièrement dominé par son sujet, évoque la vision d'un monde étrange, chaotique et sombre, au milieu duquel le Juif Errant marche sans cesse, n'offrant aucune prise ni aux éléments ni à la mort. On ne saurait trop louer la maîtrise développée ici par les 3 graveurs, Rouget, Jahyer et Gauchard, habiles et heureux interprètes de DORE, dont ils ont éxécuté, sur bois, les dessins avec une vigueur de tons qu'il est difficile de surpasser..."

        Manuscript Journal from a Civil War Soldier

      Good. Leather. A manuscript journal from an Iowa infantry soldier, with details of the soldier's life in 1862-1863. Sueded and stamped leather boards have heavily rubbed corners and edges. Black title label with "Docket" on it. Binding tight. The first entry is dated October 15, 1860, from the original owner, apparently the secretary of a Marshall Cavalry, with a few names mentioned. After a few pages an 1866 entry signed by F. L. Keith of Company H, 13th Iowa Volunteer Infantry, indicates that the journal was confiscated at Waterford, Mississippi and used by him "for the purpose of transcribing into it a journal of the history and exploits of the 13th Iowa during the Great Rebellion. This will be transcribed from small pocket-diaries kept by myself while in the army," with further introductory notes on the regiment. The army journal entries are on 74 pages dating from April 23, 1862 to April 30, 1863. After those are various journal entries from the late 1860s to the 1880s, probably all by the same author. A Frederick L. Keith listed as a fourth sergeant in the 13th Regiment, Iowa Infantry, matches Civil War rosters. Three pages contain descriptions of the Second Battle of Corinth. "Oct. 3d: Today the battle of Corinth commenced. The fighting commenced on the Memphis R. R. In the morn. EOur Co and Co. "G: were ordered across some abattis or fallen timer to skirmish but the rebs making a fland movement on the right we were ordered back and were soon sent out again right in full view of two columns rebs ...The balls flew like hail four of our Co were wounded about 10 of Co G were killed and wounded....Oct. 4th...The rebs were entirely cut to pieces. They fought well and took the fort but could not hold itand were driven out with great slaughter. About 2 o'clock they sent in a flag of truce to bury their deadwhich was only a ruse to allow them to retreat...." Most of the journal entries describe details such as the weather, camps and marches, the sending and receiving of letters to and from Keith's wife, and a miserable Christmas laid up in camp with diarrhea. Many names of other soldiers are given, and the last entry records being mustered for pay. The later entries after the Civil War are journal entries as well as account and crop records for Keith, who was a farmer. ; 8 1/2" x 1 1/4" x 7" .

The work was originally published in ten parts between 1852 and 1855. It was intended to complement the octavo edition of Audubon's celebrated work "The Birds of America, from Drawings Made in the United States and their Territories." The annexation of Texas and the addition of California and New Mexico to the United States had led to increased exploration and research in the South West. "At first the Audubons were receptive...however, Cassin wanted shared credit on the title page and a free hand in correcting the errors of nomenclature of the elder Audubon, a touchy point with the sons. In the end, Cassin went on his own, although clearly following the Audubon format and also using J.T. Bowen as lithographer" (Reese). Reese, Stamped with a National Character 42. Anker 92.

Didier (1805-1864) met Sir Richard Burton in Cairo months after his famous 1853 visit to Mecca, and briefly travelled with him (Burton mentions him in his own account of his pilgrimages to Mecca and Medina). He departed on his the present voyage from Suez in 1854, travelling through the Sinai to the Red Sea and Jeddah on the way to Ta'if. At this time the region was largely under Ottoman control and in 1856 they ousted Abd al-Mutalib, who had the support of the Bedouins, and returned his predecessor and rival Muhammed bin Adb al-Muin ibn Aun to power. Didier gives detailed accounts of the ruling families and the events of the period, and his book served as a basis for Karl May's German adventure story for children, In Mekka (1923).- Foxed throughout, but otherwise in good condition. An account of travels on the Arabian peninsula that inspired adventure stories. WorldCat (5 copies); cf. Blackmer 484 note (French ed.).

An den Komponisten Hermann Kestner (1810-1890): "Ich bedaure sehr, Ihnen in Betreff der übersandten Durchzeichnungen fast gar kein Urtheil melden zu können. Ich bin seit 8 Jahren nicht mehr in Toscana gewesen, wo sich die meisten Compositionen vorfinden mögen, habe auch keinerlei Kupferstichwerke in der Nähe, und weiß daher nicht einmal zu sagen, wie vieles vielleicht nach bloßen Stichen durchgezeichnet sein könnte. Das sehr wenige was mir hat einfallen wollen, habe ich auf Ihrem Blatte vermerkt [...]". - Burckhardt übernahm 1858 den Lehrstuhl für Geschichte und Kunstgeschichte an der Universität Basel, den er bis 1893 innehatte. - Mit Antwortnotiz (signiert "K.") am 2.
