[HAWAII] REMY, Jules.
Paris: Librairie A. Franck; Leipzig, Frank'sche Verlags-Buchhandlung, 1862. Octavo, with presentation inscription; original quarter red roan and marbled boards, spine lettered and banded in gilt. A rare and important Hawaiian history, its French text based on an early oral history in the Hawaiian language. This is a presentation copy, inscribed by Rémy - a French scientist who had spent the years 1852-1855 in the Hawaiian Islands - to "Monsieur l'abbé Fabre, Hommage de l'auteur, Jules Rémy". It is rare; just one copy has appeared at auction since 1979 (PBA Galleries, 2011, estimated at US$8,000-$12,000). As Forbes points out, 'The press run of Rémy's book must have been small, for copies only very rarely appear on the antiquarian book market... The French translation of Ka Mooolelo Hawaii (The history of Hawaii) first printed at Lahainaluna in 1838... Rémy prefaces the history with a very long introduction on the "physical, moral and political state of the country".' Rémy (1826-1893) was a brilliant French natural scientist and scholar who travelled to South America and the Polynesian Pacific between 1851-1855, studying the natural history and native cultures he encountered. He spent considerable time in Hawaii, botanizing, exploring, and collecting natural history specimens for museums and scientific societies in France, and was entranced by the complexity of traditional life. His warm and engaging style won the trust of King Kamehameha III who unsuccessfully tried to keep him in Hawaii permanently. 'The text consists of Ka Mooolelo, printed its entirety both in Hawaiian a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Longmore, Sir Thomas (1816-1895)
Philadelphia: Lippincott, 1862. First Edition. Small Octavo. Half-title, 132 Pages. The classic work on gunshot wounds which became the major reference work during the Civil War and was the reference work used nearly two decades later after the assassination attempt on President Garfield. Since the author had been in many of the British wars, he had seen firsthand the types of wounds caused by gunshot from grapeshot and musket balls to the variations between the Enfield and Whitworth rifles. He proceeded to note the injuries to all parts of the human body and how to proceed with relative safety in extracting the balls and the instruments used. He also deals with the use of chloroform. He became the Surgeon to Queen Victoria and his work on gunshot wounds is referred to in the Lancet throughout the last part of the 19th century with his obituary appearing in the British Medical Journal (October 1895) issue. This copy belonged to Dr. J.H. Hunt with his stamp and his signature. He was a Brooklyn physician who was a leading speaker at Medical Societies in the last quarter of the 19th Century. Bound in black flexible leather ruled in blind, front free endpaper had been repaired by adding to a stub, edges of binding a bit rough. A very good copy.

GIBBON, Edward (1737-1794).
London: John Murray, 1862. [Late Antiquity] FINE PRIZE BINDING, a new edition. Eight volumes. Octavo (22 x 15 x 28cm). With a frontispiece etching of the author to volume I, and one or two folding maps to each volume. Slightly later black full morocco with gilt titles to spines and gilt arms of King's College London to upper boards. All edges gilt; yellow coated endpapers. KCL Prize plate for English Literature to front pastedown of volume I, dated 1880, with a smudge of tipex to each volume. Largely crisp and clean internally, with a couple of small tear to maps joins, and a couple of mis-folds. Light wear to spines and joints. Very good. Originally published sequentially in six volumes between 1776 and 1788, Gibbon's 'Decline and Fall' is universally acknowledged as a historiographical and literary giant of the English language. It has been read by historians of Rome and Byzantium ever since publication, though Gibbon's pessimistic attitude is currently unfashionable amongst scholars of Late Antiquity. Nevertheless, the breadth of his coverage and the depth of his knowledge remains unrivalled.

Overall in very good condition.

The two ledger books, both completely filled, show a wide range of depositors including those from mining camps, such as at Moore's Flat; a clerk from the Bank of California; a baker from Mariposa; and the Hibernia Ladies Savings Society. Half of the typed and handwritten ephemera includes correspondence, by-laws and court documents concerning the Savings Union and the Modesto and Turlock Defense Association.

This important work includes 48 Albert type prints with captions underneath. The original stereoscopic viewer is still present and attached as published. At once a piece of art produced by the Bierstadt brothers (one of whom is among the best known American artists) and a document of early photography this is a very difficult to find piece. One sold at Bonhams in 2012 and that listing stated no other copies had been listed on ABPC in the past 33 years. This copy includes all 48 pages / images and the original viewer in original wraps. Overall the piece is in fair condition. Fairly heavy wear to the boards with some pieces, especially of spine, showing Binding is loose. Some staining to boards.

[Confederate Imprint]: Tyson, Bryan
Brower's Mills, N.C., 1862. Broadside, 20 x 13 1/2 inches. Neatly folded, light foxing. A near fine copy. A large and historically-important North Carolina Confederate anti- secessionist broadside, banned by the Confederates as seditious. In this circular letter, Tyson advocates a reconciliation between the Union and Confederate armies, which he believes would be accomplished by deposing Lincoln and disavowing the Emancipation Proclamation. A militant Unionist, anti-secessionist, and anti-abolitionist, Tyson was an important and dedicated spokesman for those Southerners who supported maintaining the Union. Further, he was brave enough to publish his sentiments. This broadside was meant to accompany Tyson's book, A RAY OF LIGHT: OR, A TREATISE ON THE SECTIONAL TROUBLES RELIGIOUSLY AND MORALLY CONSIDERED, published in the same year, though the work and this broadside were possibly banned by the Confederates. A rare broadside, with Parrish & Willingham locating just six copies; OCLC adds five more copies over four record numbers. PARRISH & WILLINGHAM 6011.

PREZIOSI, Amadeo (1816-1882)
Paris, 1862. Folio. Engraved title, engraved list of plates and 20 chromolithographed plates, printed by Lemercier after Preziosi. Publisher's purple cloth, covers decorated in gilt and blind, expertly rebacked to style with dark purple cloth First edition of lively lithographs by one of the best known of the artists living and working in the Levant in the mid-19th century The son of Count Gio Francois Preziosi of Malta, Amadeo initially studied the law before turning to painting. After studying under Giuseppe Hyzler, Perziosi subsequently completed his art education at the Paris Academy of Fine Arts. He moved to Constantinople in 1842, fell in love with the city, and was able to make a living painting the places and people that surrounded him. It is noted in the Atabey catalogue that "Preziosi was well-known .... His studio is mentioned in Murray's guidebooks for 1854 and 1871. By that time he had become an institution in the city... He produced views of the city, and genre and costume drawings" ( The Ottoman World p.535). His paintings sold well to both the affluent local and the Grand Tourist, and his reputation was such that also served as a court painter to Sultan Abdul Hamid II. Preziosi visited Cairo in 1862 and the colourful views here depict street scenes and local inhabitants in the city and along the Nile. Colas 2425; Blackmer 1352; Hilmy II, 135.

DOSTOEVSKY, Fyodor.
St Petersburg: Iosafat Ogrizko, 1862. 2 volumes, octavo (203 x 133 mm). Recent Russian brown half calf to style, raised bands, dark red labels, gold vein marbled paper sides, contrasting marbled endpapers. Housed in a custom leather-entry slipcase. Some staining and browning. With half-titles. First complete edition, very rare presentation copy to Aleksandr Petrovich Miliukov (1817–1897), inscribed by the author in Russian at the head of the first half-title, "Aleksandr Petrovich Miliukov, from the author, in memory, with respect and sincere devotion". A superb association for this novel. Miliukov and Dostoevsky's brother Mikhail were the only two people present to say farewell when Dostoevsky began his journey to Siberian prison and exile on 24 December 1849 (Grossman, Leonid, Dostoevskii, Moscow 1965, p. 158). Ten years later, Miliukov was among the party at Nikolaevsky railway station to welcome him back to St Petersburg. In the meantime Dostoevsky had undergone the transformational prison experiences that he documents in this semi-autobiographical novel. In all probability it was Miliukov who reviewed Diadiushkin son (Uncle's Dream), the comic novella that marked Dostoevsky's return to the literary scene after a decade's silence, in the 29 April 1859 issue of the Brussels newspaper, Le Nord. In September 1860 Dostoevsky agreed to serve as the godfather of Miliukov's son. And it was at Miliukov's urging that Dostoevsky engaged the services of the stenographer who was later to become the author's second wife. For Dostoevsky's description of Miliukov's warm personality, se … [Click Below for Full Description]

New York: Carleton, 1862. 8vo., 5 volumes in original blind stamped cloth: lettering on spines dulled, 4 volumes with the bookplate of William G Abbot, spines slightly sunned, otherwise a very good set.First American edition and first edition in English translated from the French by Chas. E Wilbour.Twenty years in the conception and execution, Les Misérables was first published in France and Belgium in 1862, a year which found Victor Hugo in exile from France. On the morning of its publication, a mob filled the streets around Pagnerre's book shop, which was at the time almost entirely devoted to copies of Hugo's most recent novel. Within a few hours, thousands of books had been sold. Although Hugo's critics were quick to condemn him for making money by dramatizing the misery of the poor, the poor themselves bought, read, and discussed his book in unprecedented numbers. The Catholic Church banned the book, placing it on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum, a list of books deemed heretical or contrary to morality. Victor Hugo's "great novel has been hailed as a masterpiece of popular literature, an epic poem in prose about God [and] humanity...Hugo hoped that Les Miserables would be one of if not the 'principal summits' of his body of works.

LXIV (incl. half-title), I-XXIII + (24-) 712. pp. and 1 folded plate (between pp.160 a. 161). ¶ The scarce first edition of the controversial first French translation - bound partly uncut and with the original wrappers - of Darwin's masterpiece, one of the most important books ever printed. This famed translation - done by self-taught female scholar - ended up causing quite a stir and adding to the theory of evolution some for Darwin quite unforeseen interpretations. Because of this, the translator, Clémence Royer, gained notoriety as one of the leading eugenicists of the time. Darwin was very eager to have his work published in French. It is not known exactly how he happened on Royer as the translator, but as she was familiar with the works of Lamarck and Malthus, immediately realized the importance of Darwin's work and also had close connections to the French publisher Guillaumin, she must have seemed perfect for the job. She had a naturalist help her with the biologically technical parts and made an excellent job of the translation. There was one big problem, however - she went well beyond her role as a translator and added a 60-page preface and numerous explanatory footnotes that Darwin had not seen before publication. In the preface, she chall … [Click Below for Full Description]

This is Philip Sclater's catalogue of his personal collection, which was housed in ten small cabinets cross-referenced to the present work: "I began to form a collection of bird-skins after I commenced my residence in Oxford in 1848, being induced to do so by the advice of ... H.E. Strickland. ... My collection at present consists of about 4100 specimens, representing 2170 species of American birds of the Orders Passeres, Fissirostres and Scansores. Of these 386 are type-specimens, being those from which the original descriptions of the species have been taken. In conclusion, I may add that, in selecting specimens for this collection, one of my great objects has been to illustrate the geographical distribution of the species" (Preface).

Richard Hulse
Very Good. 1862-1864. All shipments through USPS insured Priority Mail at no additional cost. ; A collection of about 80 letters (all complete except one from c. September 1862 which appears to be missing a page) written home by a Union soldier, all legible and in good condition, some with original envelopes and postmarkings. At 19, Richard Hulse was mustered into the NY 5th Artillery (H Company) and sent shortly after to Harpers Ferry, VA where his regiment was surrendered and then paroled at Camp Douglas in Chicago. He later rode (unofficially) with the PA 18th Cavalry, and fought with them at Hanover, Gettysburg, Hunterstown, Hagerstown (twice) and Falling Water, before eventually rejoining his original regiment, with which he was involved in Winchester and Halltown. Hulse would eventually be captured again at Cedar Creek, VA in October 1864, and, according to the Annual Report of the Adjutant General for the year 1890, would join the Confederate army at Salisbury, NC in December 1864, likely as a "galvanized rebel" recruited into service while in the Salisbury prison camp. The letters give insight into conditions at Camp Douglas, Fort Marshall and Fort McHenry; the events at Harpers Ferry and battles in Virginia and Pennsylvania. Others tell of trading sugar and coffee with Confederate soldiers for whisky and tobacco, his support of Gen.

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.

Externally very smart, with minor shelfwear only. Spines are slightly faded, but the gilt detailing and Morocco labels are still bright. Internally firmly bound.
