        The Birds of Great Britain.

      London: Printed for Taylor and Francis for the Author [1862]-1873 - London:Printed for Taylor and Francis for the Author.[1862]-1873. First edition, 5 volumes, folio (558 x 375mm.), 367 hand-coloured lithographed plates from drawings by Gould, Joseph Wolf, H.C. Richter and W. Hart, mostly lithographed by Richter and Hart, list of subscribers, lists of plates, nineteenth-century tan half morocco gilt, gilt edges.John Gould's most popular and perhaps his finest work. This is Gould's first collaborative work with Josef Wolf. The German natural history painter Josef Wolf brought to Gould's monographs a realistic vigour and sensibility of nature lacking in the work of many of Gould's studio artists. "All of Wolf's plates represent a moment of suspended action. Gone are the stilted tableaux of birds frozen in profile purely for the sake of identification; Wolf's birds all bear the mark of the character of the species. 'You know', remarked Wolf, I make a distinction between a picture in which there is an idea, and the mere representation of a bird'" (Isabella Tree, The Ruling Passion of John Gould). The most popular of all his works is always likely to be "Birds of Great Britain" Fine Bird Books. The text is more extensive and the illustrations depict many more chicks, nests and eggs than in Gould's other works.The work proved so popular that Gould was forced to increase the size of the edition after just two of its eventual twenty-five parts were issued. Gould was born in Lyme Regis, Dorset, the first son of a gardener and probably had a scant education. Shortly afterwards his father obtained a position on an estate near Guildford, Surrey, and then in 1818 Gould became foreman in the Royal Gardens of Windsor. He was for some time under the care of J. T. Aiton, of the Royal Gardens of Windsor. The young Gould started training as a gardener, being employed under his father at Windsor from 1818 to 1824, and he was subsequently a gardener at Ripley Castle in Yorkshire. He became an expert in the art of taxidermy. In 1824 he set himself up in business in London as a taxidermist, and his skill helped him to become the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London in 1827.Gould's position brought him into contact with the country's leading naturalists, and also meant that he was often the first to see new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society of London. In 1830 a collection of birds arrived from the Himalayas, many not previously described. Gould published these birds in A Century of Birds from the Himalaya Mountains (1830Ð1832). The text was by Nicholas Aylward Vigors and the illustrations were lithographed by Gould's wife Elizabeth, daughter of Nicholas Coxen, of Kent. Most of Gould's work were rough sketches on paper from which other artists created the lithographic plates. His illustrated works amounted to 41 folio volumes, an enormous output and amongst the finest the "Birds of Great Britain" Fine Bird Books, p.78; Nissen IVB 372; Sauer 23; Wood, p.365; Zimmer, p.261 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Small Archive Relating to Private William Henry Johnson, the First Union Army Deserter Executed during the Civil War

      Various, Various 1862 - This unique collection consists of three letters containing first-hand eyewitness accounts of the execution, four complete newspapers providing press coverage and illustrations of the event, and a cut signature of William B. Franklin, the court-martial convening authority. The autograph and letters are in nice shape; the postally used envelopes are worn. Three of the newspaper were removed from bound volumes; the leaves of one of them are loose. While many soldiers deserted both from both sides during the American Civil War, only 147 Union deserters were executed. On 13 December 1861, William Henry Johnson, a Private in the First New York Cavalry became the first; he was executed by firing squad in a field just outside Alexandria near the Fairfax Seminary (now the Virginia Theological Seminary). On 4 December 1861, Johnson was on picket duty at the intersection of the Little River and Columbia turnpikes about seven miles west of Alexandria. After dinner, Johnson mounted his horse and began to ride along Braddock road to Centreville. He soon encountered several horsemen that he assumed to be a Confederate patrol. He hailed them, announced that he was a Union deserter, and offered to provide them with the locations of his unit's pickets. To his surprise and subsequent horror, Johnson soon found that the horsemen were not rebels but a returning reconnaissance patrol. A court-martial was quickly convened at the camp of Brigadier General William B. Franklin's Division, Johnson's senior headquarters. There, Johnson's excuse that he was only trying to visit his mother in New Orleans after which he planned to quickly return to his unit failed to sway the court and he was sentenced to death. On the day of his execution, General McClellan directed Franklin's entire division to witness the execution in hope that it was dissuade future desertions. The letters in this collection provide summaries of the desertion and personal reactions to the actual execution: 4-page letter from W. S. Milmime, Camp Newton, Virginia dated 15 December 1861 with its postally used envelope. "He was driven all around the lines in a wagon, his coffin going before him giving a warning to others who may be disposed to follow his course. Death to traitors is our motto." * 3-page letter from D. Trump, Alexandria, Virginia dated 23 December 1861 on patriotic letterhead with its postally used patriotic envelope. "I have seen . . . my fellow boys be shot down by my side. But my blood never run so cold as is it did . . . to see a man led out into the field to be shot down by his own friends. . . . I would rather see a man died in the field of battle by cold lead or steel from the enemy than to see him shot by his friends." * 4-page letter from Eli Hitchcock, Camp Arlington, Virginia dated 13 January 1862. "A man was shot 5 miles from here for desertion. . . . the damn traitor got himself all to hell because 8 men shot him . . . took aim at his head & blew his brains out. . . ." The newspapers provide considerable details of the desertion, trial, and execution. Some include large illustrations: The Philadelphia Inquirer, December 14, 1861. Front-page article headlined, "The First Execution in the Army of the Potomac - A Deserter. . . . His execution took place . . . in the presence of 7000 soldiers. . . . A detachment of twelve men were detailed for the purpose, eight of them fired, when Johnson fell on his coffin but life not being extinct, the other four in reserve fired with the required effect." * Harper's Weekly, December 28, 1861. Page 827 contains a full-column article that includes an extract from Johnson's confession and a lengthy and especially detailed account of his execution ending with "The troops then all marched round, and each man looked on the bloody corpse of his late comrade, who had proved a traitor to his country." A full page illustration of the execution showing Johnson falling into his coffin is on page 828. * Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper

Bon exemplaire (dos, coins et coupes lég. frottés, bel état par ailleurs). Lors de sa parution, « il reçoit un accueil unanimement favorable, au point qu'on le compare aux meilleurs travaux allemands ». Membre de la Société de Géographie depuis 1850, Garnier mettra 15 années à élaborer le présent ouvrage. « Cette parution déclenche un concert de louanges. Noirot, dans la revue du Monde Colonial, juge que l'exécution typographique, le choix du papier, la parfaite netteté du coloriage en font un monument géographique hors ligne. Pour le vulgarisateur Louis Figuier, « l'ouvrage est aussi complet qu'il pouvait l'être, et nous pourrons l'opposer avec fierté aux grands atlas anglais et allemands, qui ont fait la renommée des Johnston, des Kiepert, des Stieler et des Berghaus". Elisée Reclus n'est pas moins laudatif. Le plus curieux dans cet atlas est sa seconde partie dans laquelle "est appliquée une projection jugée "saisissante" par les contemporains. Il s'agit de la projection orthographique, appartenant à la catégorie des projections perspectives, qui représentent la surface du géoïde comme la verrait un spectateur place en un point determine de l'espace". Cet aspect précis de l'ouvrage marquera fortement Elisée Reclus" (pour toutes ces citations, cf Gilles Palsky, Revue de la BNF, 24, pp. 39 - 45). As it's well explained on the David Rumsey Map Collection website, "This atlas is exceptional for its "spheroidal" maps of the globe, showing the various continents and poles, shaded to give the effect of a sphere floating in space. The remaining maps are also very well executed and colored, mostly by hand, a few in colored litho. In recent years, this atlas has become rare in the trade. This is the only atlas that Garnier produced, according to Phillips. Tooley lists an 1860 edition." Français

Une bordure en partie dénudée sur le plat supérieur du dernier tome. Une signature sur quelques faux - titres. Bel exemplaire en demi maroquin d'époque. On affirmait autrefois que l'édition de Paris avait été censurée et qu'elle différait de l'édition belge ; on sait aujourd'hui qu'il n'en est rien, et que c'est Hugo qui a lui - même diffusé ces bruits ne pouvant croire qu'à Paris, certains passages ne seraient pas ôtés.

        The Oriental Album: Twenty illustrations in oil colors of the people and scenery of Turkey, with an explanatory and descriptive text

      Anson D.F. Randolph, New York 1862 - (18 x 13 3/4 inches). Tinted lithographic additional title by Charles Parsons, printed by Endicott & Co., 20 chromolithographic plates by Parsons after van Lennep, all printed by Endicott & Co. of New York. Modern half brown morocco and cloth boards, spine gilt. A rare and important American color-plate book One of the relatively few American costume books, and certainly the best such created in 19th-century America. This is a notable and unusual instance of the taste for the Ottoman or "Turkish" which manifested itself in the furniture of the period but seldom in books. In terms of American color-plate books, this is one of the only large projects from the 1860s, when the Civil War seems to have curtailed production of such lavish enterprises. "The one really big chromolithographic book of this decade . the art is simple, but [Charles] Parson's hand is obvious in the good lithography, and Endicott's printing is well done for its time" (McGrath). "Endicott achieved a rich variety of color which demonstrated the increased technical ability of American printers in the medium" (Reese). Henry Van Lennep was born in Smyrna, the son of European merchants. Educated, on the advice of American missionaries, in the United States, he returned to Turkey as a missionary in 1840, and spent most of the next twenty years in various parts of the Ottoman Empire. Returning to the United States in 1861, he turned his superb original drawings of Middle Eastern life into the Oriental Album. The plates include two scenes of Jewish life in the Ottoman Empire. Included are plates of "A Turkish Effendi", "Armenian Lady (at home)", "Turkish and Armenian Ladies (abroad)", "Turkish Scribe", "Turkish Lady of Rank (at home)", "Turkish Cavass (police officer)", "Turkish Lady (unveiled)", "Armenian Piper", "Armenian Ladies (at home)", "Armenian Marriage Procession", "Armenian Bride", "Albanian Guard", "Armenian Peasant Woman", "Bagdad Merchant (travelling)", "Jewish Marriage", "Jewish Merchant", "Gypsy Fortune Telling", "Bandit Chief", "Circassian Warrior", "Druse Girl."

        La légende du Juif errant. Compositions et dessins par Gustave Doré, gravés sur bois par F. Rouget, O. Jahyer et J. Gauchard, imprimés par J. Best. Poème avec prologue et épilogue par Pierre Dupont. Préface et notice bibliographique par Paul Lacroix (Bibliophile Jacob). Avec la Ballade de Béranger mise en musique par Ernest Doré. Deuxième édition.

      - Paris, Librairie du Magasin pittoresque, 1862; in-plano, 19 pp. + 12 ff. de planches, demi-basane bleue de l'époque, dos lisse à faux nerfs (petits accidents aux coiffes, dos et coupes un peu frottés). Leblanc, 218. Second tirage du plus spectaculaire des livres illustrés par Gustave Doré, comprenant 12 planches monumentales évoquant un monde chaotique et sombre. "Le chef-d'?uvre de Doré dans le genre chaotique (?). Et puis le format est formidable !" (Beraldi). En préface, Paul Lacroix rend hommage à la virtuosité des graveurs : "L'emploi des planches de buis qu'on avait pas encore appropriées à des ?uvres de pareille dimension leur a permis de faire entrer dans ces grandes pages les travaux les plus fins et les plus achevés ; ils ont ainsi, au moyen de la gravure sur bois, rendu des tons et des effets qu'on croyait ne pouvoir obtenir qu'avec la gravure sur métal". Reconnaissant et conscient du tour de force, Doré céda ses droits de reproduction aux trois graveurs. "On ne saurait trop louer la maîtrise développée ici par les trois graveurs (?), habiles et heureux interprètes de Doré dont ils ont exécuté, sur bois, les dessins avec une vigueur de tons qu'il est difficile de surpasser" (Leblanc). Bon exemplaire malgré les petits défauts d'usage signalés à la reliure et des minimes rousseurs sans gravité sur les pages de texte ; les planches, protégées par des serpentes, ont été épargnées. 1862

In full: ""Executive Mansion May 15, 1862 Hon. Sec. of War My dear Sir: Capt. Symmes Gardner was nominated to the Senate as Assistant Quartermaster, and rejected. My impression is that I directed his renomination, on information from Senators, that the rejection probably resulted from mistake. If there be such direction of mine on file, please send me to the renomination at once. Yours truly, A. Lincoln"".Lincoln's efforts were in vain. Gardner was mustered out of the 18th Infantry regiment in December 1863."
