ARNOLD, Edwin.
London: Saunders, Otley, and Co., 1862-5 - 2 volumes octavo. Original red pebble-grained cloth, title gilt to spines, blind panelling to the boards, publisher's device in gilt to the upper boards and in blind to the lower, brown surface-paper endpapers. Cloth a little rubbed and soiled, now neatly restored, the spines relined and the corners stiffened, hinges tightened, map with a couple of tears, no loss, laid down on Japanese tissue, light toning, a very good set. Large folding, lithographic Outline Map of the Punjab to volume I. First editions. Important and uncommon. "In 1865 the duke of Argyll concluded, 'When the records of our Empire in the East are closed, Lord Dalhousie's administration will be counted with the greatest that have gone before it' . It is a measure of Dalhousie's achievement that this verdict still holds true, and his career is seen as crucially important both by historians of the British empire in the East and by those of the emergence of India as a modern nation. Fittingly, Dalhousie Road still remains in New Delhi as a reminder to both traditions" (ODNB).

Clarke, H.C.:
[Augusta, Ga.: Steam Press of Chronicle & Sentinel, 1862. 191pp. Modern half morocco and cloth. Old ex-lib. ink stamp on titlepage and two other leaves. Somewhat dust soiled. Else very good. A revealing account of the war by the leading wartime printer of Vicksburg, Mississippi. The DIARY... covers the period through Jan. 2, 1863, thus the actual printing date for this title must have been after 1862. The copyright notice and the standard bibliographies list this book as having been printed in 1862, and Howes calls it "another issue," after an 1862 edition of fifty-six pages. The book includes accounts of the battles of Shiloh, Antietam, Sharpsburg, Corinth, Cedar Run, and the first battle on Manassas Plains. In addition to his journal of the war and the battle accounts, Clarke includes a general history of the "old" Union before the war, with an interesting discussion of abolitionism in the North.

Clough (Arthur Hugh)
Cambridge: Macmillan 1862 - FIRST COLLECTED EDITION, pp.xxvii, 259, 16 advertisements, 8vo, original green honeycomb cloth, gilt, minor wear to the extremities, good Inscribed on the brown front free endpaper in the month of publication to ‘The Rev’d R.P. Graves with A J Clough’s kind regards July 1862’.Anne Jemima Clough, the poet’s sister, was the first principal of Newnham College Cambridge and a pioneer of women’s education. Robert Perceval Graves (1810-93), scion of a family that ‘had for several generations contributed with distinction to scholarship and to the learned professions in Ireland’ was at the time curate of Windermere and hence neighbour to Anne Clough; the poet, Arthur Hugh, had died in 1861. Graves wrote a Memoir of Wordsworth and a Life of Sir William Rowan Hamilton, these two enjoying a well-known friendship. Graves was also the grand-uncle of the poet Robert Graves, so the volume radiates considerable poetical associations. (Scott A13; Tinker 646)

(New Bedford, MA), (1862, 1863). Octavo. (120)pp. Twenty pages of this ledger contain hand-written notes for the whaling bark Morning Star from New Bedford during an Atlantic voyage from August, 1862 to April, 1863; the remaining pages are blank. "Slops" is a naval term referring to a sailor's outfit and items of equipment, and the word eventually expanded to encompass a sailor's small cash purchases. This ledger, also known as a "slop chit," lists sailors' names followed by a tally of their purchases, which consist primarily of clothing and large amounts of tobacco: around twenty-six pounds of tobacco were purchased by individual sailors, and more than 100 pounds by the company. Articles of clothing listed include wool shirts and drawers, stockings, a monkey jacket, and straw hats. In addition to the accounts of individual crew members, the ledger also itemizes expenses for the owners' account with the captain, Hervey E. Luce, which includes food purchased for the ship, customs house fees, and postage for letters. The entries are dated between September 1862 and March 1863, during the peak years of whaling in New England. A fascinating glimpse into the provisions needed to supply a whaling ship and its crew. Fine in original marbled boards with a leather spine.

John Gould
London 1862 - John Gould (1804-1881). A selection from Birds of Great Britain, published in London 1862-1873, printed by C. Hullmandel. Lithograph with original hand-coloring measuring 14 ½” x 21 ½”. Condition: Very good, small tear in upper right hand corner measuring less than 1/4". John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Drawing on these abilities, he embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. The preparatory drawings that he produced were passed on for completion to skilled illustrators, most notably his wife, Elizabeth, and Edward Lear. The plates which resulted from such partnerships were a splendid fusion of art and science, with a scope that remains unsurpassed. Stunning and at the same time highly accurate, Gould's illustrations linked beauty to science, and science to beauty, in and an unprecedented manner. Gould was especially proud of this sumptuous work. He described the Birds of Great Britain as a return to his old love of native birds. Unlike in earlier publications, however, the illustrations incorporate more nests, eggs, and young than the earlier works, with a focus on landscapes and family groupings. The ornithologist and his collaborators took more of an interest in creating accurate, appropriate … [Click Below for Full Description]

DECAISNE, J.
1862. Paris, F. Didot, 1862-1875. 9 volumes. Folio (295 x 212mm). With 508 (almost all) colour-printed engraved- or chromolithographed plates finished by hand. Contemporary red half calf, gilt ornamented spines (ends of spine a bit chipped, one hinge splitting) . Nissen BBI, 456; not listed by Dunthorne and Pritzel. Extremely rare iconographie on fruit with superb large plates, of which the first 6 volumes depict pears, volume VII peaches, volume VIII peaches (remaining part), prunes and apricots, and the last volume strawberries and currants. The colour-printed engraved illustrations are signed: A. Riocreux del. & Mlle. E. Taillant sc., and the chromolithographed ones: A. Riocreux del., G. Severyns, chromolit. Brux. & Mlle. E. Taillant sc. "The most sensitive and skilful French botanical artist of the period was Alfred Riocreux (1820-1912), who may be considered the Paris counterpart of Walter Hood Fitch ... Trained by his father, the boy progressed so rapidly with drawing and painting that the sketches which he made at the age of thirteen were considered worth preserving at Sevres. The botanist Adolphe Theodore Brongniart (1801-76), whose father had also been employed at Sevres, directed the attention of the young Riocreux to botany and was probably also responsible for bringing him to the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle. Here the young artist met Joseph Decaisne (1807-82), for whose superb 'Le Jardin Fruitier du Museum' ... he made the drawings ..." (Blunt, pp. 229-230). G. Severyns, being responsible for the excellent chromolithographs in the above work, was the most gifted … [Click Below for Full Description]

Trollope, Anthony:
London: Chapman and Hall, 1862.. London: Chapman and Hall, 1862.. Two volumes. Original blindstamped brown-purple grained cloth with gilt decorated spines, untrimmed. Illustrations by J.E. Millais. Spines a little faded (as usual), small perforation to rear endsheet gutter of vol. II, some offsetting to pastedowns and light foxing to endsheets, otherwise a fine set in an amateurish half-morocco slipcase with cloth- covered insert. Very scarce in this condition. First edition in book form (originally issued in twenty monthly parts), possibly mixed issues. Sadleir notes that "reprinting of the two volumes was not simultaneous . . . and I believe that the numerous combinations of varying volumes which exist are due, not always to careless mixing of sets between 1862 and present day, but often to circumstances of publication." In this set, the first volume corresponds generally with Sadleir's first issue, bearing the stabholes of the original bound-together parts, vertically grained cloth, and the printer's imprints on verso of the title and on p. 320. However, Sadleir calls for two plates to be together between pp. 86 and 87, and in this volume, one of the plates is bound-in facing p. 73, which Sadleir indicates is a second issue trait. In this set, Volume II has vertically grained cloth, as called for in Sadleir's third issue, but otherwise corresponds with Sadleir's first issue. No advertisements are included in either volume. However, Sadleir indicates: "the presence of absence of a catalogue . . . will, in the case of Orley Farm, have even less than its u … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.
