Disdéri, [André-Adolphe-Eugène]
Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1862. First edition. Thick 8vo., 367 pp., illustrations in text. Contemporary binding of calf and marbled paper over boards, with gilt title label and rules. Modest rubbing to the spine. There is a small hole on the first blank leaf. A very good copy. One of the few copies issued on a heavier paper. André-Adolphe-Eugène Disdéri (1819 - 1889) a self-taught daguerreotypist, researched and improved upon the existing collodion-on-glass negative process, which he outlined in his first publication, Manuel Opératoire de Photographie sur Collodion Instantané, 1853. That same year, he returned to Paris and opened the largest studio in Paris, which spread across two floors. It was there that he introduced his carte-de-visite portraits which were a great financial success. For the 1855 Paris Exposition Universelle, he formed the Société du Palais de l'Industrie and obtained the rights to photograph all the products and works of art exhibited at the Exposition. In this, his best known and most influential book, Disdéri provides an introduction to the materials of photography, including photomechanical processes, a through discussion of the collodion process, and in the final part he discusses his approach to the practice and the art of photography, defending it as more than a mechanical operation, with comparisons to painting. Eder writes "Disdéri was considered the outstanding portrait photographer of his time in Paris. Napoleon III appointed him court photographer. In 1861 he instructed French officers in photography under orders from the minister of war. Disdér … [Click Below for Full Description]

Disdéri, [André-Adolphe-Eugène]
Paris: Chez les Auteurs, n.d. (1860 - 1862). Disdéri, André-Adolphe-Eugène. First edition. 16mos. 15 original albumen photographic portraits (ca. 3 1/4 x 2 inches) mounted on printed stiff paper mounts (ca. 5 3/4 x 4 1/5 inches). 14 of the portraits are each housed in their original printed paper folder, which includes a printed biographical text (4 pp.). A few issues show mild dampstaining; on one issue, the wrapper cover has transferred small pieces which have adhered to the photo edges. Most are in very good or better condition. Housed in a calf and marbled paper clamshell box with label on spine. André-Adolphe-Eugène Disdéri, a Parisian, was the official photographer to the court of Napoleon III; he is credited with the popularization of the cartes-de-visite in the 1850s; in 1854, he obtained a patent for a standard format of 4 x 2 1/2 inches. Among the portraits offered here are: Comte de Cavour, Suzanne Lagier,Sir Robert Peel, Emanuel Gonzalès, Parade, Mlle. Figeac, Les Frères Lionnet, P.- C. Hugier, and S.M. Napoléon III. The complete GALERIE DES CONTEMPORAINS was published fortnightly as individual fasicules with a carte-de-visite portrait accompanied by a biography of the sitter, and could be purchased according to taste, or in bound volumes of twenty-five.

Valicourt, E [Edmond] de
Paris: La Librairie Encyclopédique De Roret, 1862. Revised second edition. 2 volumes. 12mo., xix, 256 pp., 71 pp.; xiii, 340 pp., illustrations in text and one folding plate which is lacking a small portion. Illustrated original wrappers, chipped at edges. Stamps from the Cromer Collection on each title and vol. 1 cover, edges toned and worn. The spines have been coated to preserve the chipped text. Housed in new clamshell box of linen over boards with spine label affixed; card divider between volumes. An excellent survey of photographic processes to date. The largest portion is devoted to the daguerreotype - Valicourt was a practitioner of the process and here provides full descriptions of apparatus and chemicals, plates (including daguerreotype) and the various paper processes in use: collodion, albumen and gelatin, etc. Also includes photomechanical techniques. Valicourt had previously written a few short pieces which appeared as chapters in texts by Smee, and a text on Blanquart-Evrard's paper process from the mid 1840s; in this title he has borrowed and distilled from the the discoveries of Niépce, Daguerre, Fox Talbot, Herschel, Hunt, Blanquard-Evrard, Niepce de St.-Victor, Fizean, Claudet, et al. To call this volume a " Nouvelle édition" is an exaggeration; it is considerably revised and enlarged from the 1851 editiont, and one of the superior compendiums of known photographic processes to date. Not listed in Roosens and Salu. Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, No. 55, as a first appearance.

WELLES, GIDEON [SECRETARY OF THE NAVY]
Government Printing Office, 1862., Washington. First edition. 8vo. Original blind stamped pebbled brown cloth, [2], 107 pp., titles stamped in gilt on the front cover, plus two colored frontispiece plates and three folding maps. This copy is inscribed on the verso of the first frontispiece plate, "Presented by Rear Admiral D.G. Farragut [to] Acting Master Chas. J. Gibbs." Gibbs served under Farragut on the steam-sloop, Richmond, and the inscription is almost certainly in Gibbs's own hand, noting his receipt of the book from Farragut. Laid into this copy is a small albumen photograph of Farragut's flagship, The Hartford, with a number of men standing in the foreground. This volume collects a slew of official reports on the highly important Union Navy victories at the mouth of the Mississippi in April, 1862, as Farragut captured key Confederate forts on his way to seizing New Orleans. More than two dozen reports from a variety of naval officers describe the six days of ferocious mortar bombardments and the rebel responses, a display of firepower that historian James McPherson calls "the greatest fireworks display in American history." The operations that resulted in the capture of forts Jackson and St. Philip, and the bombardment and surrender of New Orleans are described in detail. Other reports give casualty figures, discuss the disposition of Confederate captives, and relate coastal surveys. The plates show the Confederate ironclads Louisiana and Manassas partly submerged in water, the latter vessel on fire "as she appeared in passing the 'Harriet Lane' after receiving a b … [Click Below for Full Description]

Glauben Sie nicht, daß wir, anschließend an Tübingen, noch ein zweites Conzert in Stuttgart riskieren sollen, oder einen Versuch in Heilbronn wagen könnten?

Paris, Dentu, 1862. In-8, demi-maroquin vert bronze à grands coins, dos lisse orné en long d’un motif romantique de petits fers réunis par deux filets prolongés et filets d’encadrement, auteur et titre dorés en tête, date en pied, plats garnis de grands coins filetés or, tête dorée (rel. de l'époque), (2) f. faux-titre et titre, (1) f. de dédicace, (1) f. "prolégomènes", 226, (1) f. de table. Édition originale tirée à 100 exemplaires aux frais de l'auteur. Premier texte en prose de Villiers, ‘Isis’ est dédié à son cousin Hyacinthe du Pontavice de Heussey. Celui-ci venait de lui faire connaître Charles Baudelaire dont l'influence fut déterminante. ‘Isis’, dont seule la première partie fut publiée, fut un échec. Catulle Mendès, Théodore de Banville (qui reconnut d'emblée le génie de l'auteur) et Stéphane Mallarmé mis à part, peu nombreux furent ceux qui le lurent à l'époque: seuls vingt-trois exemplaires ont été vendus entre 1862 et 1886. L'auteur écrivit : « J'ai couru inutilement pour en trouver un seul, et je crois qu'on n'en pourrait trouver un exemplaire que sur les quais, par hasard, quelque jour » (Correspondance, I, p. 170). (Vicaire, VII, 1089-1090). Quelques rousseurs et piqûres éparses. Petit manque de papier en coin du fx-titre. Très bon exemplaire, bien relié, grand de marges, non rogné (217 x 137 mm).

Wilbour, who was employed by Carleton Publishing Company to translate the highly popular masterpiece by the French author Victor Hugo, clearly one of the most important and influential novels of the nineteenth century.

London: Routledge, Warne and Routledge, 1862. Includes: The Phantom Ship, Mr. Midshipman Easy, Peter Simple, The Naval Officer: or Scenes and Adventures in the Life of Frank Mildmay, The King's Own, Newton Forster, Japhet in Seach of a Father, Percival Keene, The Dog Fiend, The Pacha of Many Tales and The Poacher. Frederick Marryat (1792-1848) was a distinguished naval officer and novelist. While at sea, Marryat wrote and in 1829 published The Naval Officer, or, Scenes and Adventures in the Life of Frank Mildmay. The vivid and lifelike narrative of naval adventure, much of which he had experienced, took the public by storm: the book was a literary and financial success. He had already written The King's Own (published in 1830), and, having settled down to his new profession of literature, he rapidly produced Newton Forster (1832); Peter Simple and Jacob Faithful (both 1834); The Pacha of many Tales (1835); Mr. Midshipman Easy, Japhet in Search of a Father, The Pirate and the Three Cutters (all 1836); Snarleyyow, or, The Dog Fiend (1837); The Phantom Ship (1839); Poor Jack (1840); Joseph Rushbrook, or, The Poacher (1841); Percival Keene (1842); The Privateer's Man (1846); and Valerie (1849). When in need of ready cash he drew cartoons, which were made into etchings by his friend George Cruikshank. When the readiness with which he had poured out novels of sea life at the rate of as many as three a year began to fail, he found a new source of profit in his popular books for children.

Original brown morocco, gilt pictorial cover showing a woman on camelback under a crescent moon beside palm trees, gilt-stamped spine, a.e.g. Head and toe of spine expertly repaired. Slight wear along foredge of first five leaves, text pages uniformly tanned. Minor marginal foxing on plates, all images fine. Overall very good. 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 "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" - STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
