Bulwer-Lytton, Edward George Earle Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton.]
London: Sampson Low, Son, & Co., 1862. London: Sampson Low, Son, & Co., 1862.. Octavo, two volumes: pp. [1-2] [i-iii] iv-x [1] 2-353 [354: printer's imprint]; [1-2] [1] 2-384 + 16-page publisher's catalogue dated January 1862 inserted at rear of volume two, half title leaf in volume one, none in volume two, as issued, original decorated brown cloth, front and rear panels stamped in blind, spine panels stamped in gold and blind, top and fore-edges untrimmed, cream coated endpapers. First British edition. Sampson Low's edition was preceded by a two-volume Continental edition published by Tauchnitz in 1861. Bulwer-Lytton, "an assiduous student of occultism and the pseudo sciences, attended Levi's conjurations, and his novel A STRANGE STORY (1862) is based in great part on Levi's work. Bulwer-Lytton's Margrave is the first convincing capable practicing black magician in modern literature. A STRANGE STORY was widely read, and many fictional accounts of magical ceremonies have been derived from it." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 304. "In the field of supernatural literature Bulwer is enormously important ... A STRANGE STORY stands behind most more recent novels of magic or of personality change ..." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction, p. 87 (also described as entry 305). "The novel itself is a real triumph, in the end subordinating all the occult machinery, including a full-scale alchemical and Rosicrucian distillation of the elixir of life, to the strongly-based philosophical and religious arguments for the immortali … [Click Below for Full Description]

I was in hopes that he would take a leave of absense but he refuses to accept one. I have not asked for my leave yet he being sick I expect he will refuse it when I do. The Medical Director has asked for and obtained a leave of absense for him self. He has proposed my self for the position... Genl Grant is in command. I expect you will feel bad if I don't get a leave but it wont be my fault if I don't. ...

URUGUAY)
London. Effingham Wilson. 1862. Full-page and in-text wood engravings, plus four folding maps with outline hand-color, 72pp, 7 1/8 x 5 inches, stiff card wrappers (softbound). Tightly bound with cloth or thick paper spine, possibly a later embellishment. Covers lightly soiled; very good, clean condition. "By Authority of the Monte Videan Government." A booklet evidently prepared for distribution at the Great London Exposition of 1862. Chapters include Memoranda for Emigrants: the Voyage Out; the Introduction, wherein it is written "The little knowledge possessed in Europe of the economical and political institutions of this fine country, have determined the publication of the geographical and statistical information contained in these pages"; following is the main chapter, The Republic of Uruguay, Monte Video, Geographical, Social, and Political which details climate, vegetable productions, trees (utility of), minerals, animals (race horses and fine wool etc.), institutions (hospitals, schools), land and water communication, post offices, commerce, summary of professions, details of the various departments, etc. There follows a chapter Life in the River Plate and a Catalogue of the Articles Exhibited in the Uruguay Department, International Exhibition, London 1862, with information on Jury Awards.

TROLLOPE, Anthony.
London: Chapman and Hall, 1862. 2 volumes, octavo. Original purple wavy-grained cloth, the grain running perpendicularly for both volumes, covers blocked with conventional frame design in blind, on spines with farming designs and lettered in gold, pale yellow endpapers. Spines inevitably and very lightly sunned, a fine set: rare thus. Without publisher's catalogue sometimes found at end of vol. I ("cannot be regarded as essential" – Sadleir); 40 wood-engraved illustrations, with first state captions throughout. First edition, first issue, an exceptionally good copy. Unusually, the two volumes were published nearly ten months apart, and subsequent re-issues of each volume did not proceed in step, with the result is that sets often have the two volumes in mismatched issues. Sadleir claims priority for copies with the grain of the cloth perpendicular for vol. I and horizontal for vol. II, but his bibliographical reasoning is, for once, unconvincing. The text in both volumes of this set conforms entirely to the first issue (i.e. copies bound from parts), in matching bindings in which the grain of the cloth runs perpendicularly on both.

Millais, John Everett
n.p.: n.p., [1862]. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover. An interesting collection of forty superb wood engravings by Pre-Raphaelite artist John Everett Millais. Millais was one of the most important and prolific nineteenth century illustrators. He illustrated texts by Anthony Trollope, Harriet Martineau, Alfred Lord Tennyson, among many others, working closely with important wood engravers such as the Dalziels. This rare volume is likely a private compilation by an admirer or even a close associate of Millais. The illustrations are from various sources including "Sister Anna's Probation, from a novella by Harriet Martineau and first appearing in "Once a Week' on March 22, 1862 as well as an illustration for Rosa Mulholland's "Irene" appearing in the Cornhill Magazine, 1862. A large folio bound by well known binders Hayday and Mansell in full pebbled black morocco binding with gilt lettering "Millais 1862" on cover, concentric gilt rules on covers, dentelles and spine. Light scuffing. There is a vellum sheet just preceding the engravings, which are mounted on thick card stock pages, each surrounded by a single gilt-ruled border. The pastedowns and free endpapers have some foxing and offsetting from the dentelles.The first two plates have some light spotting but the others are near fine. A lovely collection in very good condition. PRERAPH/011618.

John Murray, London, 1862. Third edition, tenth thousand. Octavo. pp ix, 268. Frontispiece engraving of Prince Albert. Full brown morocco, raised bands, gilt rules, gilt inner dentelles, with Albert's crest in gilt on upper cover. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers.

The third edition was the first to contain a section entitled "The Office of Commander-in-Chief" in which is related the attempt to persuade Albert to take the post, which, after giving it some thought, he declined. It is to this that Victoria refers in her inscription. The recipient served with the 1st Battalion Rifle Brigade inthe Kaffir War, after which he commanded the battalion and served with it in the Crimea. Also he was present in the first stages of the siege of Sebastopol. Cover edges just a little rubbed. Very good indeed. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

It didn’t. “The War with the South” saw print in dozens of separate parts during the height of the Civil War. This incredible first edition set is an impressive account of the Civil War, written solely from a Northern perspective.

New York, 1862. Seventeen loose plates, listed by numbering order on contents leaf. 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.

[BURKE & WILLS SEARCH EXPEDITION] BOURNE, George.
Melbourne: H. T. Dwight, 1862. Octavo, 54 pp. (last blank), an excellent copy in the original printed yellow wrappers; preserved in a blue quarter calf box. Rare first edition: this alternative account of the Landsborough expedition - sent to locate Burke and Wills in Northern Australia -- was written by the second-in-command George Bourne. The sole independent source on the expedition, 'it must be considered an essential adjunct to Landsborough's official narrative and every collector should seek out a copy' (Australian Rare Books). Bourne's narrative forms the only independent account of an inconclusive - and sometimes controversial - expedition that was well publicised by its leader. Bourne, an experienced bushman, had this narrative edited for the press by E.M. Curr, who in the process of preparing it for publication did not omit Bourne's criticism of his erstwhile leader.Bourne's book was issued in two states by Melbourne publisher H.T. Dwight. This copy is the issue in yellow titling wrappers with advertisements for books by the Reverend Woods printed inside the front and rear covers. Not surprisingly, it is considerably harder to find than Landsborough's narrative, especially in such crisp original condition. Slight wear to spine and lower wrapper a little creased but a fine bright copy in very good original state.

[BURKE & WILLS SEARCH EXPEDITION] VICTORIAN PARLIAMENT.
Melbourne: John Ferres, Governmewnt Printer, 1862. Two reports bound together, foolscap folio, the first report with 52 pp. and three folding maps; the second 32 pp.; fine in recent quarter dark blue morocco by Sangorski. Two important Burke and Wills related reports, with the rare lithographic maps. The reports relate to two major relief parties sent in search of the missing explorers by Landsborough and Walker, and include the only contemporary printing of anything relating to Walker (Landsborough, a keener self-promoter, published his own account). The second report prints the coastal journal of Norman, captain of the Victoria. The Victoria had been sent to the Gulf of Carpentaria because of the belief that Burke and Wills were most likely lost in the far north. The first report includes three important and rare maps showing Albert River, Flinders River, and "Walker and Landsborough's Routes". Lithographed in Melbourne in April 1862, they were bound into only a limited number of copies, most probably prepared for parliamentarians and persons closely connected to the relief expedition.Landsborough, a seasoned explorer, struck out from the Albert River, and ultimately crossed the continent via Coopers Creek and Menindie, an important expedition in its own right. At the same time, Frederick Walker went inland from Rockhampton. Walker had served as a superintendent of native police at Wagga, and had become a sort of vigilante, but he was the one who found traces of Burke's encampment before returning to the east coast of Queensland on foot.The second report prints the journa … [Click Below for Full Description]

[London], Published by Day and Son, 1862. Folio (31 cm x 43 cm). 14 pages Index to the plates and 100 full page plates / Fantastic Illustrations. Original Hardcover with rich gilt ornament to front board. Spine missing. Very few pages cleanly detached. Complete and rare publication. This the copy from the library of Dublin Architect and Engineer Charles Geoghegan, with his name on the titlepage. William Eden Nesfield (2 April 1835 - 25 March 1888) was an English architect. Like his some-time partner, Richard Norman Shaw, he designed several houses in Britain in the revived ‚Old English' and ‚Queen Anne' styles during the 1860s and 1870s. He was also a designer and painter. William Eden Nesfield was born in Bath on 2 April 1835, the eldest son of the landscape architect and painter William Andrews Nesfield. He was educated at Eton College. In 1850 he was articled to the architect William Burn, but after two years he moved to the practice of his uncle by marriage, Anthony Salvin. He studied architectural drawing under James Kellaway Colling. He travelled widely in the 1850s, and published his drawings in Specimens of Mediaeval Architecture (1862), which was dedicated to William Craven, 2nd Earl of Craven. Around 1860 he started his own architectural practice; but he soon linked up with his friend Richard Norman Shaw, with whom he was in a formal partnership between 1866 and 1869, though they kept their jobs separate. Nesfield and Shaw contributed greatly to the new styles of domestic architecture in Britain, which began in the 1860s and flourished in the 1870s, notably the O … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fausse mention de huitième édition pour les 6 premiers volumes, les 4 derniers, soit les tomes 7 à 10 sans mention aucune. Reliure en demi chagrin maroquinée rouge d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné de filets gras et maigres, dorés et à froid. Ensemble bien frais, exempt de rousseurs. Quelques coins émoussés, les autres frottés. Belle série agréablement reliée. Afin de faire un point sur les divers jugements des bibliographes : Alors que Vicaire signale que l'édition française est la véritable originale, Clouzot affirmant que les deux sont originales, on doit préciser que l'édition belge est parue trois jours avant (le 31 mars pour Bruxelles et le 3 avril pour Paris), mais la vérité ne tient pas à une histoire de date. Lacroix est l'éditeur de Hugo, Pagnerre n'en est que le dépositaire à Paris, ce qui explique la présence du nom de Lacroix derrière le faux-titre, conjointement à celui de Lacroix. On sait en outre que L'oeuvre devait paraître dans toutes les grandes capitales en même temps, ce qui arriva à quelques jours près. Pour la question des mentions, cela est vraisemblablement assez simple : pour des raisons commerciales de coût on a procédé à un seul tirage, certains avec des mentions, d'autres pas, afin de les distribuer au cours de l'année comme si chaque fois, il s'agissait de nouvelles éditions.

First edition, first printing with "Thackaray" for "Thackeray" on the title page. This cloth issue was probably simultaneous with the paperbound copies. Aldrich's first collection of short fiction. "The title story is a short novel with three self-contained tales framed within a narrative that establishes the speaker (Paul Lynde) as a resident of a private lunatic asylum, followed by a short 'found manuscript' from colonial witchcraft days, in the light of which the three self-contained tales demonstrate the working out of an ancient curse. Taken as a whole, this marks an important, though overlooked, early contribution to American supernatural fiction. The work has some tonal inconsistencies that show up the author's inexperience (he was only 26 at the time of its publication) but one can also see a rich imagination is at work here, deploying ghosts, dreams, sorcery, fate, curses, prophecies, reincarnation, witchcraft, magic objects and crazy inventions -- not to mention murder, madness and an early locked-room mystery. Chapters 11-14 (the third of the three tales) constitute the first detective story by an American to appear in book form since the publication of Poe's TALES (1845). Not the least of the work's merits is that it mines native material rather than falling back on the accumulate … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition, first issue. Life and Letters quotes Asa Gray as saying that "if the Orchid-book (with a few trifling omissions) had appeared before the Origin the author would have been canonised rather than anathematised by the natural theologians." Even Darwin considered that: "This little volume will do good to the Origin, as it will show that I have worked hard on the details." The book was concerned with working out in detail the relationships between sexual structures of orchids and the insects which fertilise them, their evolution being attributed to natural selection. Fewer than 2,000 copies were printed of this edition, which was the only John Murray edition of Darwin between 1859 and 1910 not to be bound in green. It sold slowly and though there was a second edition in 1877 there has never been a reprint of the first edition. Freeman 800, variant A.

The book was concerned with working out in detail the relationships between sexual structures of orchids and the insects which fertilise them, their evolution being attributed to natural selection. Fewer than 2,000 copies were printed of this edition, which was the only John Murray edition of Darwin between 1859 and 1910 not to be bound in green. It sold slowly and though there was a second edition in 1877 there has never been a reprint of the first edition. Freeman 800, variant A. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

SANSON (Charles-Henri).
P., Dupray de la Mahérie. un tableau résumant les exécutions qui ont eu lieu à Paris pendant la période révolutionnaire, reliures demi - basane bordeaux à coins, dos lisses, titres, tomaisons et doubles filets dorés (rel. de l'époque), qqs rousseurs comme toujours, trace de mouillure claire au tome VI, bon état. Edition originale, bel exemplaire. Peu commun "Cet ouvrage est l'oeuvre du journaliste d'Olbreuse à qui Henri - Clément Sanson avait confié les mémoires et notes laissés par ses ancêtres. Aussi, quoique apocryphes, ces mémoires ne sont pas à rejeter totalement, car ils ont été rédigés à partir de documents originaux. On y trouve le récit de toutes les grandes exécutions durant la Terreur, à commencer par celle de Louis XVI." (Fierro 1315. Tulard 1316) -- "Les Mémoires des Sanson, proposés par Henri - Clément, dernier bourreau d'une lignée inaugurée en 1688, passionné de littérature, de théâtre et de peinture, ruiné par ses dépenses somptuaires et le jeu, révoqué en 1847, n'ont cessé de fasciner. Ils ont déjà bénéficié de plusieurs éditions, complète (en six volumes, en 1862) ou abrégées ; sans compter les textes apocryphes de 1829 et 1830 (dont l'un est dû à Balzac et à L'Héritier de l'Ain). Ecrit par Henri - Clément, aidé par le publiciste D'Olbreuse, qui perçut plus d'un tiers des droits d'auteur, savamment construit si l'on en juge par le plan de l'ouvrage, mettant en exergue le catalogue des peines et des frais de justice, et, la chronologie familiale achevée, les grands événements judiciaires et politiques du XVIIIe siècle avec lesquels elle paraît se confondre … [Click Below for Full Description]

Divisé en vingt chapitres, l'ouvrage aborde la chasse à la bécasse sous tous ses aspects, à la lueur des connaissances de l'époque. Si la science cynégétique de cet oiseau a quelque peu évolué, le texte demeure intéressant et surtout formidablement agrémenté par les dessins de Félicien Rops, gendre de l'auteur qui se fait ici dessinateur au trait teinté de beaucoup d'humour : D'où nous vient la bécasse. Habitudes et vol. Chasse à tir et en battue. La passée et la croûle. Cuisine... Quant au titre énigmatique, Mr de Cherville précisait à la sortie de cette édition que ce terme "SUARSUKSIORPOK" vient du Groënlandais et signifie “le chasseur à la bécasse” (La vie à la campagne).
