Phillips 892. Mitchells New General Atlas was a classic geographical reference in the late 19th century. Taking over the Mitchell Company business after his father retired in 1860, S. Augustus Mitchell, Jr. revised the existing Mitchell atlas and renamed it the New General Atlas. New editions were published yearly until 1887. The maps were so popular they were used by the public and sometimes other publishers until the beginning of the 1900s. See Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers.

        THE COLONIAL HISTORY OF THE CITY OF SAN FRANCISCO: BEING A SYNTHETIC ARGUMENT IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA, FOR FOUR SQUARE LEAGUES OF LAND CLAIMED BY THAT CITY.

      San Francisco: Towne & Bacon, 1863. - [4],102,[2],115pp. plus frontispiece map. Later calf, gilt ruled boards and spine. Lacking original wrappers. Hinges cracked, leather spine label chipped. Leather book label on front pastedown. Author's presentation inscription on blank frontis map recto to C.V. Gillespie, leaf detached. Text lightly tanned, with an occasional fox mark, otherwise clean. Good. In a half morocco and cloth clamshell box, leather chipped and worn. The scarce first edition of Dwinelle's essential California work, here with a presentation inscription to "C.V. Gillespie, Esq with complts of John W. Dwinelle." C.V. Gillespie was a land title insurance agent, whose business in San Francisco began at the start of the California Gold Rush. The original wrappers betray the origins of Dwinelle's work as a legal brief for the case of "The City of San Francisco vs. The United States," with John W. Dwinelle being the counsel for the claimant. This extensive brief is also a historical account of the city of San Francisco, and confirmed the city's claim to four leagues of "Pueblo Lands," as defined by the Land Commission Act. Dwinelle's history is a great storehouse of information on the beginnings of San Francisco, with printings of a large number of documents which are now either inaccessible or destroyed. Also with a frontispiece map entitled, "The Peninsula of San Francisco." The Streeter copy of the first edition, also in original printed wrappers and with a presentation inscription from Dwinelle to John Hittell, brought $300. This is the Estelle Doheny copy, with her bookplate. HOWES D614, "b." ZAMORANO 80, 32. COWAN, p.189. HOWELL 50:782. SABIN 21573 (listing only the 3rd and 4th eds). STREETER SALE 2879.

        Principes de la Théorie des Richesses.

      Paris: L. Hachette et Cie,, 1863. Octavo (214 x 130 mm). Contemporary French brown quarter roan, gilt lettered and banded spine, marbled sides, speckled edges, marbled endpapers. A few minor scrapes to binding, inner joints cracked but sound, some light marginal pencillings. A very good copy in a period French binding. First edition. Cournot was the first "to visualize the general interdependence of all economic quantities and the necessity of representing this cosmos by a system of equations" (Schumpeter, History of Economic Analysis, 1986, p. 467). In 1838 he published Recherches sur les Principes Mathématiques de la Théorie des Richesses. Perhaps because he was primarily a mathematician and his work contained technicalities to which economists had been previously unaccustomed, it went almost unnoticed until its significance was recognized by Marshall, Walras and Jevons. The present work states his theory without the mathematics and develops it into a systematic doctrine. Because in the Recherches he "treated only questions where mathematical analysis was applicable... the product was not a complete treatise on political economy but a selection of contributions to various specific topics" (Theocharis, Early Developments in Mathematical Economics, p. 200). In the Principes the results are united.

        The Visitors' Handbook to Rosslyn and Hawthornden.

      Edinburgh: R. Grant & Son,, [c. 1863]. Small octavo (165 x 100 mm). Presentation (?) green full calf, richly gilt spine, two-line gilt border on sides enclosing blind roll-tool border, gilt lettered on front cover, all edges gilt, richly gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Photographic albumen print frontispiece & 11 albumen print plates (all mounted on thicker paper). Binding a little rubbed and scraped, front hinge split but skilfully restored. An attractive copy, with the 2 terminal leaves (giving the order of service and advertising two titles by Bradley). First and only edition of the first guide book to Rosslyn Chapel. A very appealing association copy: from the library of General James Alexander St Clair-Erskine, 3rd Earl of Rosslyn (1802-1866), inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Rosslyn. May 23 1866". Also loosely inserted are a newspaper clipping relating to the funeral of James Francis Harry St Clair-Erskine, 5th Earl of Rosslyn, six small photographs showing his grave (one inscribed and dated 13 August 1939) and a postcard photograph showing him at Baden-Baden sometime in the 30s. Traditionally, the Earls of Rosslyn are buried at Rosslyn Chapel. From the late 16th-century the chapel was abandoned and fell into a state of ruin. In 1842 Queen Victoria visited the site and expressed a desire that it should be preserved. Under the aegis of the 3rd Earl of Rosslyn the chapel was restored and finally re-dedicated on 22 April 1862. Edward Bradley (1827-1889) is best known by his pseudonym of Cuthbert Bede, and as the author of one of the runaway best sellers of the 19th-century, The Adventures of Mr Verdant Green, an Oxford Freshman, 1853, (it is estimated that by 1870 it had sold 100,000 copies). He was in many ways the ideal candidate to write this little guide book as he had recently cashed-in on the growing Victorian love affair with Scotland, publishing two books with Scottish settings: Glencreggan (1861) and A Tour in Tartan-Land (1863). He was also a Church of England clergyman and a keen photographer, so the plates may well be from photographs taken by him. Rosslyn Chapel and its speculative connection with the Knights Templar and Freemasonry entered main stream pop culture with the publication of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code in 2003.

        Official Civil War Manuscript Histories of Two Companies within the 1st New York Infantry - 1861 to 1863

      Camp at Potomac Creek near Falmouth, Virginia, 1863. Loose Leaf Reports. Very Good. Ten legal-size legible pages record the history of two companies from the 1st New York Infantry during the Civil War. Some minor soiling and edge wear. These official histories were written in April, 1863 as the regiment prepared to be mustered out of Federal service in late May. Both are detailed chronologies of the regiment's service told from the perspective of company grade officers. The accounts begin with the regiment's establishment in New York City, its movement to Fortress Monroe, and its participation in the Peninsula Campaign and follow-on actions in Virginia during which the regiment fought at Big Bethel, the Seven Days (the Peach Orchard and Glendale), Malvern Hill, 2nd Bull Run (2nd Manassas), Chantilly, and Fredericksburg. The accounts, however, are not quite complete because the regiment was ordered into battle one last time at Chancellorsville in early May after these reports were prepared. In addition to detailed chronologies, the records contain officer rosters, listings of dead and wounded, 'final' strength reports, and recognition of soldiers who had performed valiantly including a recounting of Sergeant Field's recovery of the Regimental Colors at the Battle of Fredericksburg after all of the standard bearers had been killed or wounded. Fields charged into a hail of bullets, rescuing the colors and capturing two Confederate soldiers. Both company reports also contain entries regarding their shelling at Newport News by the Confederate ironclad, Merrimac on 8 March 1862. Obviously unique. As of 2016, no similar original, manuscript unit histories are in the trade, nor are any similar auction records listed at Rare Book Hub or ABPC.

        Tales of a Wayside Inn

      Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1863 First edition, first printing, with the first issue November 1863 ads citing Tales of a Wayside Inn as "nearly ready." Presentation copy, signed and inscribed by Longfellow on a front flyleaf: "Mrs. Palfrey / with the kind regards / of the Author. / December 23, 1863." Publisher's green cloth, decorated in blind, lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, brown coated endpapers. Very good or better, with some light wear to the extremities, faint toning to the spine, minor chip to the spine head, spine lightly starting inside the front cover, otherwise sturdy binding, a hint of spotting to the vignette title page, some minor creasing to a few page corners, otherwise fresh interior. Overall, a very tight and clean copy, inscribed by Longfellow in the year of publication with an excellent association. BAL 12136. Longfellow inscribed this copy of Tales of a Wayside Inn as a gift to Mary Ann Palfrey (née Hammond) the wife of Massachusetts minister, editor and politician John C. Palfrey. Although, as the editor of the North American Review, Palfrey was well acquainted with many of the major authors of the day, he and Longfellow maintained a close, long-standing friendship that spanned nearly half a century. Indeed, Longfellow corresponded with Palfrey's wife for nearly as long and continued to write to her after her husband's death in 1881. Notably, Longfellow inscribed this copy within the first month and a half of its publication in November 1863. Tales of a Wayside Inn is a collection of poems that relay the stories told by the patrons of the Wayside Inn, a small tavern nearby Longfellow's home and a favorite haunt of Harvard alumni. Notably, this collection includes one of Longfellow's best-known poems, "Paul Revere's Ride," in which he evoked the noble figure from America's past as the nation found itself again on the midst of upheaval. Additionally, this volume includes "The Children's Hour," "The Wraith of Odin," "Iron-Beard," and "The Cumberland," among others.. Inscribed by Author. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        [Album of watercolours of scenes in Great Britain]

      [Great Britain, 1863. Folio. (20 1/4 x 14 1/2 inches). 134 watercolours or pencil drawings, mounted recto and verso on 41 sheets. Several signed by Hallewell, most captioned by him in pencil on the mount. Expertly bound to style in half blue morocco and period marbled paper covered boardsAn important album of British watercolours.Edmund Gilling Hallewell, Lieutenant and Adjutant of the 20th or East Devon Regiment, was stationed in Bermuda from 1841 to 1847. In addition to his military duties he also served as private secretary to the Governor, Colonel William Reid. He subsequently married Sophia Reid, the Governor's daughter.In 1842, Hallewell, with Reid's encouragement, produced watercolours of scenes on the island. These were then sent by Reid to the Colonial Office in London. Interest in the watercolours both in London and Bermuda was such that Hallewell published a suite of lithographed views in 1848. The suite was obviously issued in relatively small numbers and is now very rare: only two copies (one incomplete) are listed as having sold at auction in the past 35 years."Following a tour of duty in Bermuda from November 1841, Hallewell, then lieutenant and adjutant in the 1st battalion of the 20th regiment, arrived at the Halifax station on board HMS Vengeance on May 5, 1847" (Coverdale). The regiment was posted to Kingston, London and Montreal in Canada. The son of a Gloucestershire member of parliament, Hallewell's subsequent military career included service in the Crimea and Malta, before he retired from active service in 1864. In 1869 he was appointed commandant of the Royal Military College at Sandhurst, but died in the same year at the age of 47.The present watercolours date from the period following his service in Canada, but prior to leaving Great Britain for the Crimean War. Many of the bucolic images depict scenes near his home in Gloucestershire, as well as in the nearby North Wales countryside. Of particular note are a series of very fine watercolours of Chatsworth. Between 1850 and 1853, i.e. at the same time as the present watercolours, Hallewell exhibited landscapes in the Royal Academy, British Institution and at the Society of British Artists.

Plain pages with red-ruled margins by T Houlden of Edinburgh. Over 100 signatures of late nineteenth/early twentieth century figures from the musical world including violinists, pianists, opera singers, conductors, composers and a complete set of St George's Double Quartet of Edinburgh, together with their organist and conductor. Some of the signatures are written directly onto the page, grouped in categories such as "Tenors" and "Conductors & Composers", some pasted to pages and others are loosely inserted. Some of the insertions also include attached letters and notes, and several have been placed in labelled envelopes in a later hand. The boards are rubbed to edges and the spine is absent; endpapers are lightly soiled and some pages are wrinkled from the paste used to attach the signatures. The album belonged to Col. David Boyle Hope of Edinburgh and his signature is the first in the album, dated 1863; the latest are those of the Double Quartet dated 1918. Many entries are undated and some include a little musical notation; Polish violinist and composer Isidor Lotto, Irish composer and accompanist Sir Herbert Hamilton Harty and the British music critic John Alexander Fuller Maitland all appear twice. Other notable luminaries of the musical world include John Pyke Hullah, English composer and pioneer in the field of musical education, Alfred Mellon, conductor of the popular Promenade concerts and the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Jenny Lind, the celebrated opera singer known as "the Swedish Nightingale", under her married name of Goldschmidt. Col Hope was Secretary of the Scottish Vocal Music Association and the collection reflects his lifelong interest in musical subjects. Ephemera [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Oration delivered on the Battlefield of Gettysburg, (November 19, 1863,) at the Consecration of the Cemetery Prepared for the Internment of the Remains of those who fell in Battles of July 1st, 2d, and 3d, 1863

      Baker & Godwin, New York 1863 - (9 x 5 5/8 inches). 48pp. Publisher's lettered wrappers, publisher's ad on rear wrapper. (Repair to paper spine). Within a modern box. "Four score and seven years ago.": the earliest publication of the Gettysburg Address in book form, preceded only by the exceptionally rare sixteen-page pamphlet, The Gettysburg Solemnities, known in only three copies. Lincoln made his speech at the dedication of a cemetery on the Gettysburg battlefield some four months after the bloody and pivotal battle that turned the tide of the Civil War in favor of the Union. Lincoln's speech was preceded by an address from Edward Everett, the most famous orator of his day. Everett's speech took some ninety minutes to deliver, and is largely forgotten. Lincoln's speech, delivered in only a few minutes, is immortal. It is a supreme distillation of American values, and of the sacrifices necessary for the survival of liberty and freedom. "The Washington Chronicle of 18-21 November reported extensively on this ceremony and included a verbatim text of 'Edward Everett's Great Oration.' On the fourth day it noted in passing that the President had also made a speech, but gave no details. When it came to the separate publication on 22 November, Everett's 'Oration' was reprinted from the standing type, but Lincoln's speech had to be set up. It was tucked away as a final paragraph on page 16 of the pamphlet [The Gettysburg Solemnities]. It was similarly treated when the meanly produced leaflet was replaced by a 48-page booklet published by Baker and Godwin of New York in the same year" (PMM). Lincoln's address appears on page 40, and parenthetical notes are added indicating "applause" and "long-continued applause." A diagram on page 32 gives the details of the Soldiers' National Cemetery at Gettysburg. Howes E232, "b"; Monaghan 193; Grolier, American 100, 72 (note); Streeter Sale 1747; Sabin 23263; cf.

        Sinai and Palestine . [With:] Lower Egypt, Thebes, and the Pyramids . [And with:] Upper Egypt and Ethiopia

      William MacKenzie, London 1863 - (16 7/8 x 12 inches). 111 mounted gold-toned albumen photographs (additional title with mounted vignette and 36 photographs, in each volume). Scattered minor foxing at sheet edges. Expertly bound to style in half black morocco and publisher's period cloth covered boards, spines with raised bands in six compartments, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges The best edition of Frith's photographs of Upper and Lower Egypt and the Holy Land. By the mid 1850s, Frith had sold his grocery and printing businesses to devote himself full time to photography. Between 1856 and 1860, he made three expeditions to Egypt, Sinai, Ethiopia, and Jerusalem, photographically documenting Middle Eastern architecture and culture. "On the first, he sailed up the Nile to the Second Cataract, recording the main historic monuments between Cairo and Abu Simbel. On the second, he struck eastwards to Palestine, visiting Jerusalem, Damascus and other sites associated with the life of Christ. The final expedition was the most ambitious, combining a second visit to the Holy Land with a deeper southward penetration of the Nile. His photographs of the temple at Soleb, 800 miles south of Cairo, represent a genuinely pioneering achievement. Unlike many travel photographers of this period, Frith used the wet collodion process in preference to the more convenient paper-based calotype. Because it involved chemically sensitizing the glass plates on site, this process posed particular problems in a climate dominated by heat, dust and insects. Commenting sardonically on how his chemicals often boiled on contact with the glass, he nevertheless produced negatives that are remarkable for their consistently high technical standard . Frith photographed most of the key monuments several times, combining general views with close studies of their significant details and broader views of their landscape environment. The clarity of his images proved to be of immense value to archaeologists. The photographs are also often powerfully composed, revealing an understanding of the poetic qualities of light that gives them lasting aesthetic value" (McKenzie, Grove Art). Upon his return to London, Frith first published his photographs under the title Egypt and Palestine Photographed and Described , in two volumes with 76 photographs. Various other works followed, including his elephant folio Egypt, Sinai and Jerusalem in 1860 with 20 albumen images, as well as a deluxe edition of the Queen's Bible illustrated with 57 photographs of the Holy Land in 1862. The present set was published by Mackenzie in 1863 comprised of four volumes: Sinai and Palestine ; Lower Egypt, Thebes and the Pyramids ; Upper Egypt and Ethiopia ; and a supplementary volume titled Egypt, Sinai and Palestine . Each volume contained an illustrated title and 36 mounted photographs, for a total of 148 images. The final volume, evidently issued subsequent to the previous three, was a supplementary volume and is not present here, as is often the case. Comparing these volumes to Frith's 1858-59 Egypt and Palestine Photographed and Described , Gernsheim refers to the present set as the "second, enlarged edition." While there are certainly similiarities between the two works, including images printed from the same negatives and with some identical textual descriptions, in many ways the present set is an entirely different work. Whereas the earlier work was issued in parts with a random ordering of the images, the present set is organized based on Frith's expeditions, yielding a better visual narrative of his experience. Furthermore, many of the images appear here for the first time, having not been included in any form in the original edition, and many images are variants of views from entirely different negatives than those appearing in the earlier work. Of this latter category, some are slight variants from the same location and angle (e.g. The Sphynx and Great Pyramid, Geza [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Reconstruction du pont de Tilsitt.

      (Lyon -64) 1863 - (44,5 x 59 cm). 1 Textblatt. Mit 10 montierten Originalfotografien in Albuminabzügen auf je einer Tafel. Halblederband der Zeit mit blindgeprägten Deckeln. Monumentale und seltene Fotodokumentation zur französischen Brückenbaukunst. Sie zeigt den Abriss und Wiederaufbau der "Pont de Tilsitt" in Lyon über die Saône in den Jahren 1863 bis 1864. - Die Fotografien im Format 23 x 40 bis 33 x 44 cm sind bis auf die erste (diese mit handschriftlicher Signatur) alle stempelsigniert. Sie zeigen die alte Brücke, ihren Abriss und verschiedene Stadien des Aufbaus der neuen Brücke, einschließlich der aufwendigen Holzgerüste sowie den fertigen Neubau. - Die zwischen 1634 und 1642 von J. Ch. Marie erbaute Brücke wurde immer wieder durch Überschwemmungen zerstört und mehrfach wieder aufgebaut. Da die 1807 erbaute Brücke zu niedrig war und die Überschwemmungen - besonders die von 1856 - noch verstärkte, fasste der Rat der Stadt den Entschluss, sie abzureisen und durch eine höhere Brücke zu ersetzten. Diese Arbeiten werden in vorliegendem Werk dokumentiert. Die Brücke wurde 1944 von deutschen Truppen gesprengt und zwischen 1946 und 1950 als Stahlbetonbrücke wieder aufgebaut. 1964 wurde sie in "Pont Bonaparte" umbenannt. - Das Textblatt gibt eine Einführung in die Geschichte der Brücke. - Die Fotos teils gering stockfleckig, sonst gut erhalten. Die Trägerkartons stellenweise leicht stockfleckig und mit Oberflächenbeschädigung durch Insektenfraß (ohne Beeinträchtigung der Fotos). Einband etwas berieben. Rücken mit kleiner Fehlstelle im Überzug. Insgesamt wohlerhalten. - Kein Exemplar in einer öffentlichen Bibliothek nachweisbar. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

(Parrish & Willingham 6145) An attractive example with minor wear to the cover. Sound binding with firm and flat text block. Evenly toned pages with relatively inoffensive dampstain throughout. Minor foxing to fixed endpapers. Edward Warren, the Surgeon-General of North Carolina and the Medical Inspector of the Confederate Army, was dismayed by the inadequate surgical care provided and wrote this Epitome as a basic guide for use in the field. "His rare and important text, Epitome, was used by nearly every Confederate medical officer. In writing it, Warren consulted a number of leading texts and made no claim to originality. A second edition was planned, but never published," see Sims, Military Medical Men of the Civil War, Northwestern University Medical Library. Rather scarce. Parrish and Willingham report this book is held by 27 institutional libraries. As of 2016, one other example is in the trade and a total of only four examples have appeared at auction in the past 40 years per the Rare Book Hub and ABPC.
