MINARD, Charles Joseph
Paris,: Regnier et Dourdet, 8 Pass. Ste. Marie (R. du Bac), 1862. Paris,: Regnier et Dourdet, 8 Pass. Ste. Marie (R. du Bac),, 1862. 1862. Lithographed map, signed "Ch. J. Minard" in ink at lower right, mounted on linen. The map shows two flow-maps of the Atlantic trade in wool and cotton, three years apart. The time period covers the beginning of the American Civil War, which was sparked by the slavery policies of the Lincoln presidency. By January 1861, seven of the southern states had seceded to form the Confederacy. The war between the Confederacy and the states who remained in the Union lasted until 1865, and had a devastating effect on American exports. The seven separatist states are marked on both maps. The Confederacy attempted to use 'Cotton Diplomacy', cutting off the cotton supply to force European powers to intervene to save their domestic industries. In early 1861, the Union had not yet implemented its wartime blockade of the South, and cotton and wool could still be exported, but Britain and other major customers were worried about the stability of the American supply, investing heavily in production in South Asia. A line graph in the upper right corner shows the yearly export amounts of wool and cotton for America (blue). There is a sharp drop in exports from 1860, when the issues provoking the Civil War came to prominence. Comparing the two maps gives an even clearer picture of the change; by 1861 the amount of cotton and wool imported into Britain from India (yellow) had almost tripled, whereas the amount imported from America (blue) had only risen by … [Click Below for Full Description]

Yokohama: 1862. Original outline hand coloured copper engraved map. 88x156 cm. Folding map in original beige linen covers with printed pink paper title label on front cover. Some minor worming of blank margins, but overall a very good copy in very original condition. Rare map with only three copies found in Worldcat. This large format map published by Edward Schnell (1834-1890) is the corrected and updated second edition of the map published in 1858 by Kango Takeda, who had translated and redrawn the 1845 world map by John Purdy et al titled: ''A New Chart of the World On Mercator's Projection with the Tracks of the Most Celebrated & Recent Navigators''. The original 1845 map had been owned and used by Admiral Yevfimy Putyatin on his ship Diana during his diplomatic mission to Japan which resulted in the signing of the Treaty of Shimoda in 1855. However, the Diana sank in the Bay of Miyajima-mura after the powerful Ansei-Tōkai earthquake of 23 December 1854. Nevertheless, Putyatin's world map was saved and came into the hands of Kango Takeda, who translated it and produced a Japanese version of it in 1858. Then in 1862 Edward Schnell updated and corrected Takeda's 1858 map and published the present map. This world map on Mercator's projection, has several text boxes including a distance chart with distances from London shown to various destinations and a chronological list of the most important explorers. The routes of the voyages of major 18th and 19th century explorers such as Captain Cook's et al are also shown on the map.

MINARD, Charles Joseph
Paris,: Regnier et Dourdet, 8 Pe. Se. Marie, R. du Bac, 1862. Description Lithographed map, signed Ch. J. Minard in ink to title, mounted on linen.NotesThe map highlights an interesting demographic period after the abolition of slavery in Britain (1838) and France (1848), creating a dearth of workers in European colonies. The black lines coming out of Congo to Mauritius and La Reunion show the passage of workers from Africa to work on the sugar plantations owned by the French. The brown lines show the influx of indentured labourers from French settlements in Tamil Nadu in India, to fill the void created by the end of slavery. A substantial number of African and Indian migrants also make their way to the West Indies. The small blue line across the Mediterranean shows French migration to Algeria, one of its richest colonies. The thick green lines dominating the map show the huge wave of immigration from Britain to America, Canada and Australia; Australia became particularly attractive to prospective settlers after gold was found there. The number of British emigrants to America, however, was dwarfed by the number of Germans; in the period 1840-80, they made up the largest percentage of American immigrants. Migration was motivated by economic prospects and after the 1848 revolutions in some German states, there was also a wave of political refugees fleeing to North America. Brazil gained independence from Portugal in 1822, but immigration there from Portugal actually increased after it stopped being a colony, mainly peasants from rural areas. There was also a substantial mino … [Click Below for Full Description]

Collection complète des 25 illustrations de Gustave Brion, tirées sur albumine, légendées et montées sur carton, chacun portant les mentions du photographe Gilmer, des imprimeurs Faucheur & Danelle et, au tampon bleu, la signature de Brion.Victor Hugo souhaitait que la première édition de ses oeuvres ne soit pas illustrée. Aussi, en 1862, devant le succès des Misérables, Gustave Brion eut l'idée de réaliser une illustration in- dépendante et produisit vingt-cinq dessins, qu'il fit reproduire en photographies, s'associant avec Faucheur et Danelle. Cette première illustration créa véritablement les types visuels des personnages qui furent durablement repris par la suite. Elle seront vendues à la pièce ou en album, en trois formats différents : les deux plus petits pour les éditions belge et française (Lacroix & Verboekchen et Pagnerre) permettant aux amateurs de les faire relier dans leurs volumes. Ces tirages ne comportent que les légendes. Un troisième format, plus grand et plus abouti, fut réalisé : les planches sont alors légendées, adressées et comportant la signature au cachet b … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.).

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.

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]

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.

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]

Wolf, Hugo
An den Rechtsanwalt und Begründer der Stuttgarter Hugo-Wolf-Gesellschaft, Hugo Faißt (1862-1914), den mit Hugo Wolf eine enge Freundschaft verband: "Mein lieber und hochverehrter Freund! Soeben schreibt mir unser geliebter [Emil] Kauffmann [Komponist, als Universitätsmusikdirektor in Tübingen Förderer von Hugo Wolfs Musik, 1836-1909], daß Sonntag am 18. d. M. eine Matinée in Tübingen stattfinden soll. Ich bin entzückt darüber und Frl. Zerny [d. i. Frieda Zimmer, Sängerin, 1864-1917] nicht minder. Sie halten doch mit? [Karl] Diezel [Sänger, 1850-ca. 1935] singt auch. Ist das nicht prächtig? Glauben Sie nicht, daß wir, anschließend an Tübingen, noch ein zweites Conzert in Stuttgart riskieren sollen, oder einen Versuch in Heilbronn wagen könnten? Schreiben Sie doch gleich darüber Ihrem Sie innigst grüßenden Hugo Wolf [...] Alle von hier grüßen schönstens!" - Die erwähnten Konzerte in Stuttgart und Heilbronn wurden nicht verwirklicht. Am Oberrand mit Beschriftung von Hugo Faisst: "Dem trefflichsten Wolfinterpreten in dankbarer Verehrung, Stuttgart am 13. März 1900 (am 40. Geburtstage von Hugo Wolf)." - Faißt war Gesangsschüler von Universitätsmusikdirektor Karl Emil Kauffmann in Tübingen. Im Januar 1894 kam es zur ersten Begegnung zwischen Faißt und Wolf. Einem Liederabend in Stuttgart mit Wolf am Klavier folgt im Februar 1894 Wolfs erster Besuch in Heilbronn.

Thomas Hood
Edited and with notes by his son, the humourist Tom Hood. Volumes one to six published 1862, with the final volume appearing the following year. Chronologically arranged works from 1821 to 1845, including his best known verse "The Song of the Shirt" and "The Bridge of Sighs", his "Whims and Oddities", and his novel Tylney Hall. With a frontispiece portrait of the author. Thomas Hood (1799 - 1845) was an English poet and humourist. Hood was a regular contributor of prose and poetry to the leading literary and comic magazines of his day, including Punch, the Athenaeum and The London Magazine. Perhaps most famous as a humourist, his spirited verse also frequently displays a keen social conscience and considerably poignancy. Hood was described by William Michael Rossetti as the "finest English poet" between Shelley and Tennyson. Complete in seven volumes. CONDITION Bound in half calf with marbled paper-covered boards. Externally very smart, with minor shelfwear only. Spines are slightly faded, but the gilt detailing and Morocco labels are still bright. Internally firmly bound. Spotting to the first and last pages of most volumes, but pages are otherwise clean and bright throughout. Overall Condition: Very Good Indeed.
