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. Mehrfach bedankt sich Wolf in seinen Briefen an Faißt für die freundliche Aufnahme in Heilbronn und ermuntert seinen Freund, weitere Liederabende in Heilbronn zu organisieren.

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.

Captain Frederick Marryat
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. He drew the material of his stories from his professional experience and knowledge: the terrib … [Click Below for Full Description]

London, Printed by Taylor and Francis - Published by the Author, (1862-) 73. Folio. Papersize 54,5x36,5 cm. Lithographed and fully handcoloured. Two birds, male and female on branches, flowering, foliage and insects.. J. Gould & H.C. Richter, del. et lith. - Walter, Imp. Fine and clean. The plate is accompanied with the original textleaf. (2) pp. ¶ This is an original plate from Goulds great work "The Birds of Great Britain", issued between 1862 and 1873. The plates in this work were executed by Gould himself, and a few by J. Wolf, H.C. Richer and Hart. Together with Audubon's plates, the Gould-plates are considered the best bird-art ever produced, AND THE PLATES IN HIS "BIRDS OF GREAT BRITAIN" ARE THE PEAK OF GOULD'S ARTISTIC LIFE. In the foreword Gould stresses the difference from his "Birds of Europe" in the treatment of the illustrations, the inclusion here of the figures of the baby birds and nests, and he comments "Many of the public are quite unaware how the colouring of these large plates is accomplished; and not a few believe that they are produced by some mechanical process or by chromo-lithography. This, however is not the case; every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand; and when it is considered that nearly two hundred and eighty thousand illustrations in the present work have been so treated, it will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought.". Elsewhere he remarked upon employing "almost all colourists in London." - Wood p. 364. - Nissen No. 372. - Sitwell 102. - Zimmer pp. 261-62. - … [Click Below for Full Description]
