        Panama. Vista géneral tomada del Cerro Ancon por William Leblanc,

      New York Snyder Black & Sturn April 1863 - 70 x 53.5 cm. approx., lithograph by Snyder, Black, and Sturn after William Leblanc, sepia border, captioned below border. Fine lithographic view of Panama, taken from Ancon hill, at 200 metres the highest natural point in Panama, overlooking Panama with various ships at harbour in the bay in the distance. In the fore-ground trees and flora frame the vista, focusing the eye on the bird's-eye view of the city beneath. Ancon Hill was key to the defennce of Panama; for example Captain Morgan had climbed the hill to gain a knowledge of the locqal defences before sacking the city in 1671. It became part of the Panama Canal Zone under U.S. jurisdiction and consequently was left as jungle providing a rich habitat for wildlife up until the present day. 1863 was a significanty date in Panama's history as it brought about contitutional changes under which Panama gained increasing autonomy from its union with Colombia. William LeBlanc owned Ancon Hill, and when the builder of the Suez Canal, De Lesseps, visited Panama in the 1880's with a view to building a canal across the Isthmus, Leblanc warned him that there would not be trees enough there to make crosses to place over the graves of his laborours. This provd to be sadly prophetic as the canal cost thousands of lives in its construction.

        AN ORATION DELIVERED ON THE BATTLEFIELD OF GETTYSBURG, (NOVEMBER 19, 1863,) AT THE CONSECRATION OF THE CEMETERY PREPARED FOR THE INTERMENT OF THE REMAINS OF THOSE WHO FELL IN THE BATTLES OF JULY 1st, 2d, AND 3d, 1863.

      Baker and Godwin, 1863 Baker & Godwin, New York, 1863. 8vo. 48pp. "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. Bound in recent hardcover. Several pages attached with recent restoration paper stubs. Lincoln made his speech at the dedication of a cemetery on the Gettysburg battlefield some four months after the 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.

        Album photographique, circa fin des années 1850 - début 1860 (1863 ?)

      - 38,5 x 30 cm, in-folio à l'italienne en pleine percaline frappée sur le plat supérieur "Ranay". 34 photographies tirées sur papier albuminé. Un reportage photographique réalisé au tournant du XIXe siècle (entre 1855 et 1863 au plus tard) sur le château de Ranay situé sur la commune de Saint-Martin-des-bois, dont la date de restauration permet de situer la date de ces prises de vue. L'album se compose de photographies 9 x 5,5 cm disposées par 4 par page et de grands tirages d'environ 20 x 15 cm en pleine page. Ces photographies représentent l'état du château tel qu'il était avant l'exécution des travaux d'embellissement, et la demeure en cours de restauration. L'observation attentive des photographies indique une véritable mise en scène de chacune d'entre elles : femmes en crinoline, enfants accoudés sur des traverses de bois afin d'éviter de bouger, etc. Deux photos de groupe du personnel du château (femmes de chambres, lavandières, etc.), portrait du propriétaire en pied dans le parc, simulant une action de chasse, en barque sur l'étang, auprès d'une serre, etc. Les temps de pose de chacun de ces clichés sont importants, comme l'indiquent les effets de bouger sur certains détails (traces de mouvements). Cet étonnant travail a été exécuté semble-t-il par un photographe expérimenté, et très soigneusement monté dans un album spécialement conçu à cet effet. Il se dégage de cet ouvrage une grande cohérence : il s'agit en effet d'un reportage photographique sur le château de Ranay, et non d'un recueil classique de photographies de famille. L'originalité du thème : la restauration d'un château mis au goût du temps, semble être un cas unique dans les annales photographiques ; aucun album de ce type n'est en effet recensé dans les collections publiques, ni dans les ventes de ces vingt dernières années. L'originalité de cette démarche tient sans doute à la personnalité du propriétaire des lieux, Arthur-Marie-Pierre Marquis de Quinemont, propriétaire terrien légitimiste rallié au bonapartisme. L'on peut penser que l'homme, impressionné par les grands travaux ordonnés par Napoléon III, aura souhaité s'inscrire dans cet élan. Plat supérieur détaché, coiffe supérieure manquante, quelques feuillets détachés des onglets. Très bel état de conservation des clichés. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        DAILY GAZETTE EXTRA! BY TELEGRAPH OVER THE ERIE RAILWAY TELEGRAPH LINE...SUMTER OURS! IT IS TAKEN BY STORM AFTER THREE DAYS OF FURIOUS BOMBARDMENT!...[caption title]

      [N.p., but possibly Williamsport, Pa, 1863. Minor wear and soiling. One small tear in left margin. Very good plus. A vivid Civil War broadside showing the immediacy of the news from the front, as well as how garbled or false information was disseminated. The headlines further trumpet: "It is occupied by the 144th Pa. Vols. - The 'Old Flag' that Anderson was compelled to lower, floating on the ruins! - Glorious news from Gens. Meade and Butler! - Contemplated movement on Richmond." Despite resumption of a terrific bombardment of Fort Sumter on Oct. 26, the fort did not fall to Federal forces. Thousands of rounds were dropped on the fort, but it stayed in Confederate hands another sixteen months until evacuated on Feb. 13, 1865. It certainly was not occupied by the 144th Pennsylvania Volunteers, and Major Anderson's "Old Flag" did not fly over the fort until two hours before the death of Abraham Lincoln on April 15, 1865. The whole second column of text concerns events in the Western Theater (Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama), and the progress of the Army of the Potomac in Virginia. "...General Meade was on the march for the city of Richmond, under circumstances which rendered it almost certain that he would capture it. The report of the evacuation of Richmond...is of course all bosh....The details of the great movement now being executed, I am not allowed to telegraph you...the objective point of the combined command is the city of Richmond."

      Massachusetts & North Carolina. 1862-1863. - 175pp., each with 10-15 lines of text. Oblong. Contemporary limp cloth. Minor edgewear. Minor scattered foxing. Very good. The fascinating diary of Union soldier William H. Leach, from his training at Camp Hooker in Massachusetts to his service in North Carolina at the Battles of Kinston and Goldsboro Bridge. Each page of Leach's journal covers one day and is signed by him, much like a letter. Leach presents a comprehensive and engrossing account of his military service, peppered with entertaining anecdotes of spotting sperm whales on the trip to North Carolina, pitching pennies and encountering "darkies." He mentions an accident which occurred as the men prepared to set sail on October 23rd: "We hauled in anchor about 5 o'clock am and started on our journey. I went on deck while they were hoisting up some hay and after they had unhooked it the hooks swung off and took a man in the head. I felt kind of sick but did not heave." Further on he discusses battle conditions. From Dec. 14th at the Battle of Kinston: ".on our march over a muddy road saw some rebel prisoners. heard firing ahead and saw the wounded as they were brought by us. We were drawn up in line of battle. At 1 P.M. firing soon ceased the victory was ours. as we marched through the woods saw many dead bodies both rebel & federal. A meeting house was used for a hospital. We encamped at Kinston that night at 6 o clock. The 10th Com suffered severely in the fight." A few days later they met rebels again at the Battle of Goldsboro Bridge: ".marched towards Goldsboro met rebels they skedaddled. We pressed forward when within a few miles of said city the batteries commenced shelling the rebels in the woods. the shot was whistling over our heads.and the rebels rushed out of the woods. We were drawn up into line again we had the privilige [sic] of firing also the battery and you could see the rebels fall in great numbers. They led on a pond of water and some of us had a swim." Leach describes these definitive battles in great detail as well as adding numerous particulars of daily life in camp and service. A fascinating report of the Union campaign in North Carolina.

      Michel Levy Freres, Libraires-Editeurs, Paris 1863 - Octavo. First issue with the word "effraya" for "effrayerent" on page 5 and "Scissites" instead of "Syssites" on pages 251, 368 and 370. half-title with advertisement to verso, 474pp., (1)pp. table, bound with eight original "before letters" proof etchings including a title page by Pierre Vidal, printed by A. Salmon and published by Aphonse Lemerre in 1884. This portfolio of etchings was evidently produced to accompany the newly published edition. The customer could have their book rebound incorporating these etchingsor simply kept together with their new edition. Our etchings are proofs "before letters" as the etched title page does not include the author, title or editor's name which would have been done by the lettering artist once the proofs were approved. The original published etchings were printed on laid paper, ours are not. All handsomely bound in 3/4 red morocco over black & gold moulded paper, raised bands, spine lettering and top edge gilt, marbled endpapers some scattered foxing but mostly to only a few leaves at front and rear . We have located only one set of these etching housed at Texas Tech University. A very nice copy with the exceedingly rare Vidal etchings. [Carteret 1:266; Vicaire III:724-25].

        10 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Wien, 1863-1868. Zus. 13 S., 8°. Der mit Napoléon III. befreundete Gramont war 1870 als Außenminister des Kabinetts von Émile Ollivier eine der handelnden Personen im Vorfeld des Deutsch-Französischen Krieges. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius\' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr.

      [Paris], 10. X. 1863. - 8vo (210 x 134 mm). 2 pp. Recto de l’enveloppe avec adresse autographe, contrecollée sur un feuillet 8vo. À James Whistler. Chaleureuse recommandation pour Nadar, aéronaute."Cher Monsieur,Un de mes meilleurs et de mes plus vieux amis, M. Félix Nadar, va à Londres, dans le but, je crois, de raconter au public les aventures qu'il a courues avec son grand ballon, et aussi, je présume, pour faire partager au public anglais ses convictions relativement à un nouveau mécanisme qui doit être substitué au ballon.Vous savez que nous avions un peu causé de lectures et des chances que j'aurais pu trouver d'être écouté à Londres. Je vous en prie, gratifiez Nadar de tous les conseils et de toutes les indications dont vous m'auriez fait cadeau à moi-même; en deux mots, tout ce que vous ferez pour M. Nadar, j'en mettrai le souvenir dans mon cœur. D'ailleurs vous le verrez et vous saurez l'apprécier vous-même.Présentez mes amitiés à Legros [le peintre Alphonse Legros], et n'oubliez pas de montrer à Nadar vos merveilleuses eaux-fortes. Je devine tout le plaisir qu'il en ressentira".Il ajoute en post-scriptum qu’il a écrit également à Swinburne, puis indique ses adresses à Paris, rue d’Amsterdam, àHonfleur, rue de Neubourg maisne connaît pas celle deBruxelles.Le peintre américain James Whistler avait fait la connaissance de Baudelaire et de ses amis lors de son premier séjour parisien en 1855(il figurera dans le célèbre tableau peint par Fantin-Latour en 1864, Hommage à Delacroix). Installé à Londres quelques années plus tard, il avait notamment réalisé un ensemble d’eaux-fortes inspirées par des vues de la Tamise, exposées à Paris à l’automne 1862, que Baudelaire avait salué par des articles parus dans Le Boulevard et la Revue Anecdotique.Quant à Nadar, dessinateur et photographe, il venait d’inaugurer son fameux ballon, "Le Géant", qui pouvait embarquer une trentaine de personnes à son bord,par un vol effectué le 4 octobre 1863 entre le Champ-de-Mars et la ville de Meaux. Une seconde ascension du Géant devait avoir lieu le 18 octobre suivant. Parti de Paris en présence de l'empereur Napoléon III, le ballon finit sa course tragiquement par un atterrissage forcé dans la région de Hanovre au cours duquel Nadarfut grièvement blessé aux jambes.Provenance: Du Bourg de Bozas (I, 1990,partie dun°161).Références : Correspondance,II, p. 326.

        Tara, A Mahratta Tale.

      Edinburgh: William Blackwood and Sons, 1863. - First Edition. Three volumes. Octavo. Bound in publisher's brown cloth, with decorative panelling to boards, black to front board and blind to back board, with gilt titles to spine. Corners slightly rubbed, some trivial bumping to spine ends, slightly faded to backstrip. Internally clean except for a little spotting to prelims of volume one. Shows extremely well. Captain Meadows Taylor, later Colonel, was born in Liverpool but left England for India when he was fifteen. He worked as an administrator for the Nazim of Hyderabad rather than for the East India Company, and learned several Indian languages. As a consequence his work as a novelist shows particular sensitivity to the situation of Indians under the colonial system. This scarce Victorian triple-decker is an adventure novel, set in the Indian subcontinent. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        ONNA DAIGAKU TAKARA BAKO: GREAT TREASURY OF LEARNING FOR WOMEN. Together with:

      [Edo 1863, Naniwa]. Blue covers, stitched, very good, 117. double page b.w. woodcut plates, complete in one volume,. Japanese text, hand printed on Washi paper, 18 x 25.5 cm.,. together with the English translation of London 1914. SCARCE. A CLASSIC WORK BY THE ORTHODOX CONFUCIAN MORALIST An historically important work on women and women's rights in Japan from the 17th century. Documenting the life, habits, learning and essentials for female social life norms as based on traditional rules. * Each page consists of some form of important lesson & learn- ing for women and girls. Also, by using the Hyakunin Isshu as an example, the text explains the proper attitude and conduct for the women of contemporary Japan. * Beautifully printed on hand-made Washi paper and woodcut illustrated and printed by hand. With one or two illustrat- ions on each page. Handsome illustrated text renders this a valuable original and grand record of women's classic learning. * The Tale of Genji [ie: Genji Monogatari] is also illustrated and cited as examples of proper feminine conduct. The author was the celebrated Kaibara [1630-1714] who was a respected & famous moralist and philosopher. In this work, he extols the Confucian virtues and precepts as they apply to women together with other admonitions of the Samurai class. Women along with men were expected to follow Bushido [The Way of the Samurai] in their conduct, which prescribed ritual Seppuku [aka Harakiri or self-embowelment] for breaches of socially accepted norms of conduct. * This work was the most popular of all his many books and was for two centuries considered an essential part of any bride's trousseau. * INCLUDED WITH THIS JAPANESE WORK, IS THE BELOW REFERENCE IN ENGLISH: See Takaishi below. This reference is the first and only Western language translation of ONNA DAIGAKU and the first of its kind to be done in English. The London 1914 edition of the English translation of ONNA DAIGAKU, with title page reading: WOMEN AND WISDOM OF JAPAN. This keen insight covers the following chapter headings, now translated into English for the first time: [cover has small stain else clean]: - GIRL'S INSTRUCTION DEMARKATION BETWEEN THE SEXES "SEVEN REASONS FOR DIVORCE" THE WIFE'S MISCELLANEOUS DUTIES TREATMENT OF SERVANTS THE INFIRMITIES OF WOMAN -Appendices: A. THE JAPANESE REVOLUTION B. THE LEGAL CONDITIONS FOR A DIVORCE. * A wonderful example of girl's learning for the 17-18th centuries. Profusely illustrated, nicely done Japanese text. * ABOUT KAIBARA: Kaibara Ekken or Ekiken, also known as Atsunobu, [1630-1714] was a Japanese Neo-Confucianist philosopher and botanist during the Edo Period of the 16th century of Japan. * Ekken was destined to introduce two great innovations towards the Tokugawa shogunate. One of such was the systematic study of nature based on Neo-Confucianism, which was the beginning of the empirical science in Japan. Ekken's second innovation was to translate the abstruse and forbidding philosophy of Confucianism and Neo-Confucianism into the language of the ordinary Japanese. * Ekken's science was confined to Biology and focused on the "natural law". Ekken became as famous in Japan as people such as Charles Darwin when it came to Science. Ekken was known for his manuals of behavior, such as changing his Confucian ethical system based on the teachings of Chu Hsi into an easy "self-help" manuals, such as Precepts for Children and Greater Learning for Women. The textbook of Neo-Confucianism was then known as The Great Learning. Ekken's main goal in life was to make sure that that book was known throughout Japan. This project more than any other accomplishment incorporated Neo-Confucianism into the very fiber of Japanese culture * REFERENCES: * Carmen Blacker: THE JAPANESE ENLIGHTENMENT: A Study of the Writings of Fukuzawa Yukichi pp. 11, 79-84. * Shingoro Takaishi : WOMEN AND WISDOM OF JAPAN.

        MAP ILLUSTRATING THE OPERATIONS OF THE U.S. FORCES AGAINST VICKSBURG

      [Washington]: Charles G. Krebs, lithographer, 1863. Minor soiling and wear. Near fine. Map compiled by the U.S. Coast Survey Office, executed by Charles G. Krebs in Washington, showing the military operations surrounding the siege of Vicksburg, extending from just west of Vicksburg to just east of Jackson, with Natchez and the northern border of Louisiana marking the north and south boundaries. All the major roads and railroads are delineated, as are the many rivers and streams. A red printed line shows the path of Gen. Grant's army; troop emplacements and Union victories are likewise printed in red, with each victory marked by a small American flag. With the beginning of the Civil War the United States Army found itself scrambling to obtain adequate field maps for military operations in the South. The most established cartographic branch of the government, the Coast Survey, was pressed into service to provide these maps, some with a coastal component, but mainly for landlocked locations. The cartographers of the Coast Survey reviewed all of the existing cartography available, and drew on military and scouting reports and covert agents to assemble the most detailed possible maps detailing places, roads, railroads, and natural features. A fine copy of a map detailing this important Union victory. LC CIVIL WAR MAPS 290.

In J. von Haast fand er einen idealen Reisebegleiter. "Die Geschichte der wissenschaftlichen Erschließung Neu-Seelands . hat in Hochstetter und Haast ihren ersten und . einzigen wirklichen Höhepunkt. Hochstetter und sein Gefährte schufen die Grundlage der geologisch-geographischen Kenntnis der Doppelinsel. . In seinem Werk "Neu-Seeland" lieferte Hochstetter nicht nur eine Beschreibung seiner Reisen, sondern in mehr lockerer Systematik behandelte er die geologisch-geographischen Verhältnisse, die Naturausstattung, die Geschichte und die Urbewohner, deren Traditionen und Mythen, Prosa und Poesie. Das Werk faßt das damalige Wissen von Neu-Seeland zusammen . (Henze II, 593). Die prächtigen Farbstahlstiche (eine aufwendige, selten angewandte Drucktechnik) zeigen u.a. das Porträt eines Maori-Kriegers in ganzer Figur nach Charles Heaphy, einem der bedeutendsten Kolonialmaler Neuseelands. Eine weitere Tafel, entstanden nach der Fotografie eines Expeditionsteilnehmers, zeigt den Rotomahana-See mit seinen Kalksinter-Terrassen und dem Tetarata-Sprudel. Es ist die einzige authentische Darstellung, da beide durch einen Vulkanausbruch 1886 zerstört wurden. - Durchgängig etwas stockfleckig, zu Beginn etwas stärker, vereinzelt leicht fingerfleckig, die Farbtafeln gleichmäßig gebräunt.

      Augsburg, Jörg (1863). - Plakat mit typograph. Text und insgesamt 25 Abbildungen in Holzschnitt. Blattgr.: 64 x 52 cm. Das ungewöhnlich schöne Plakat überschlägt sich fast mit den angezeigten Attraktionen, die in zahlreichen Holzschnitten auch noch bildlich dargestellt werden. So zeigt die wohlgenährte Mlle. Rosalie, Nachfolgerin der Wahrsagerin Mlle. Lenormand, ihre unübertrefflichen Leistungen im Gebiet der Mnemotechnik und Rechenkunst und der russsiche Feuerkönig zeigt dem Publikum, wie man sich vor Feuer schützen kann. Es folgt die "Ausserordentliche, wunderbare Produktion des Wundermannes Herrn Roller aus Madrid. Derselbe wird vier Schwerter vor den Augen der verehrten Zuschauer zuerst in seinen Mund, und von da allmählich bis an`s Heft in seinen Körper hinabgleiten lassen" und darauf "Die frei in der Luft schlafende Dame, aufgeführt von Fräulein Orlanda" (dazu der größte Holzschnitt). Auch kommt die Riesen-Dame Isabella aus Paris, "Die kolossalste und schwerste Riesen-Dame, gegen 400 Pf. schwer, 6 Fuss 8 Zoll gross und 72 Zoll Taille-Umfang", die als ehemalige Ballerina das Publikum noch mit Tänzen erfreuen wird. Jeder anwesenden Dame werden gar 100 Taler geboten, wenn sie an "Corpulenz und Gewicht der Riesendame gleichkommt". - Wilde Afrikaner führen Tänze auf, der Zuaven-Tambour Dupanloup gibt ein Konzert auf mehreren Trommeln und zwischendurch gibt es eine "unerklärliche Verwandlung eines Herrn in eine Dame" [Attributes: Soft Cover]
