      London ; Cambridge : Macmillan and Co., 1863, Hardback, Book Condition: Very Good, First EditionThis copy is from the rare first issue of the first edition. It contains a leaf bearing a poem, L'Envoi [following the dedication page]. Kingsley had second thoughts about this while the book was being printed, and he had the leaf removed, but not before a few hundred copies of the book had already been printed (Gottlieb, Early Children's Books and Their Illustration, 113). Very good copy in a fine period binding - Professionally and sympathetically rebacked with the spine laid back. Spine bands and panel edges slightly dust-toned and rubbed as with age. Gilt-blocked leather label (somewhat worn) to spine, with raised bands and spine compartments uniformly tooled in gilt. Gilt and blind-tooled double-lined borders to panels. "Honoris Causa" gilt-stamped on front panel - "Eliot Place" on rear. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. Scattered foxing around prelims and terminal leaves. Marginal foxing evident around the second plate facing p.145. Water staining also evident along bottom of prelims., including the frontis. and title page. Remains particularly well-preserved overall; tight, bright, clean and strong. Further scans, images etc. and additional bibliographical material available on request.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 350 pages; Physical description: 350p., [2] leaves of plates : ill. ; 22 cm. Summary: The Water-Babies was inspired by Kingsley's thoughts on evolution. He was one of the few clergymen to accept wholeheartedly Darwin's theories of evolution and natural selection and to devote himself to the spread of the new knowledge of nature. Subjects: Children -- Conduct of life -- Juvenile fiction -- Chimney sweeps -- Fairies -- Evolution.

        Der Kehlkopfspiegel und seine Verwerthung für Physiologie und Medizin. Eine Monographie.

      - Zweite, teilweise umgearbeitete und vermwehrte Auflage. - Leipzig, Verlag von Wilhelm Engelmann, 1863, 8°, X, (1 Bl.), 132 pp., 26 Holzschnitte, 3 (1 doppelblattgr.) lith. Fafel, Halbleinenband der Zeit. Second Edition of the first monograph of laryngology! - - Die physikalische Diagnostik hatte indirekt über das normale und krankhafte Geschehen im Brustraum Auskunft gegeben; sie wurde in der zweiten Hälfte des 18. und zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts in Österreich von Leopold VON AUENBRUGGER (1722-1809) und in Frankreich von Rene Theophile Hyacinthe LAENNEC (1781-1826) entwickelt. Dann wurden immer häufiger und tauglicher Versuche unternommen, die einen direkten Einblick in den Organismus gestatten sollten. Verschiedene, z. T. recht monströse Apparate zeigen, wie man zu Beginn und in der Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts bestrebt war, Licht in die Körperhöhlen zu spiegeln. Da machten Ludwig TÜRCK (1810-1868) und Johann Nepomuk CZERMAK (1828-1873) die Laryngoskopie im Jahr 1858 der Klinik dienstbar. Diese neue Methode der Spiegelbetrachtung mit von außen reflektiertem Licht setzte sich in kurzer Zeit durch und eroberte von Wien aus die Welt, sodaß Leopold SCHRÖTTER VON KRISTELLI (1837-1908) in seiner "Festrede, gelegentlich der TÜRCK-CZERMAK Gedenkfeier und des fünfzigjährigen Bestehens des Kehlkopfspiegels", die er als Ehrenpräsident des ersten internationalen Laryngo-Rhinologen Kongresses in Wien im Jahr 1908 hielt, nicht übertrieb, wenn er sagte: "Wenn ich das Verlassen des philosophisch-spekulativen Standpunktes und die Einkehr zur naturwissenschaftlichen Methode als das wichtigste Ereignis des vorigen Jahrhunderts im Werdegange der Medizin ansehe, so möchte ich unter den bedeutendsten Errungenschaften, die aus diesem Boden hervorgegangen sind - der Erfindung des Augenspiegels, dem Verfahren, Medikamente auf subkutanem Wege dem Organismus einzuverleiben, der Anti- und Asepsis, der Entwicklung der Bakteriologie, der Einführung der Serum- und Organotherapie, letztere beruhend auf der Erkenntnis der inneren Sekretion, und endlich der Radiologie -als eine ebenbürtige Schöpfung den Kehlkopfspiegel bezeichnen. Es soll nun meine Aufgabe sein, den Platz festzustellen, welchen die aus der Erfindung des Kehlkopfspiegels hervorgegangene, bald zu einem abgerundeten Wissenszweige herangewachsene Larynologie im Verlauf der ersten 50 Jahre ihres Bestehens unter den übrigen Disziplinen der Medizin gewonnen hat." - Folgen wir also der Darstellung SCHRÖTTERS: Seit dem Sommer 1857 hatte Ludwig TÜRCK, ohne Kenntnis der Erfindung des spanischen Gesangslehrers Manuel GARCIA, der damals in London 1854 mit einem Spiegelchen zu stimmphysiologischen Zwecken seinen eigenen Kehlkopf besichtigt und die Ergebnisse seiner Untersuchungen im Jahr 1855 publiziert hat, zuerst an Leichen und dann an Patienten seiner Abteilung, der Nerven- und 6. Medizinischen Abteilung des Allgemeinen Krankenhauses, mittels des Sonnenlichtes mit dem von ihm konstruierten Kehlkopfspiegel laryngoskopiert, eifrig Befunde gesammelt, bis eben das mangelnde Sonnenlicht in Winter seine Arbeit unterbrach. - Im darauffolgenden Frühjahr aber veröffentlichte ein anderer, nämlich der aus Prag gebürtige Physiologe Johann Nepomuk CZERMAK (1828-1873) in der "Wiener Medizinischen Wochenschrift" seine, am eigenen Kehlkopf während des vergangenen Winters bei künstlicher Beleuchtung mit dem von TÜRCK entlehnten Spiegelchen gemachten Beobachtungen. - "Herr Türck kam eben immer zu spät", stellte CZERMAK lakonisch fest, irrte dieses Mal aber. War TÜRCK im Falle der Entdeckung des Prinzips der sekundären Degeneration der Engländer A. V. WALLER um genau eine Woche zuvorgekommen und war ihm Ahnliches mit seinen Versuchen zur Feststellung der Folgen von Halbseitenläsion des Rückenmarks widerfahren (dabei war ihm BROWN-SEQUARD zuvorgekommen), so "versuchte sich diesmal der Zauderer in jener denkwürdigen Sitzung der Gesellschaft der Ärzte am 9. April 1858 seinen Prioritätsanspruch zu sichern. Am 14. April . [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph Endorsement Signed rewarding one of his early Illinois presidential sponsors. Trumbull says that N.M. Knapp should be appointed & I strongly so incline myself. A.Lincoln Jan. 15, 1863

      Washington 1863 - A small laid paper scrap to an unnamed recipient inclining to support Illinois Senator Lyman Trumbull's recommendation that Nathan M. Knapp be appointed [as Paymaster in the United States Army]. Certainly the same N.M Knapp from the Springfield/Winchester delegation to the 1860 Republican convention who had written to Lincoln during the 1860 convention: "Things are working: keep a good nerve - be not surprised at any result - but I tell you your chances are not the worst. We have got Seward in the attitude of the representative Republican of the East - you at West. We are laboring to make you the second choice of all the delegations we can, where we can't make you first choice. We are dealing tenderly with the delegates taking them in detail and making no fuss. Be not too expectant, but rely upon our discretion. Again I say brace your nerves for any result."(James A. Hamilton, Reminiscences of James A. Hamilton; or Men and Events at Home and Abroad, during Three Quarters of a Century (Letter to James A. Hamilton). , May 31, 1860, pp. 453-454, footnote 19). Even earlier, in March, Knapp wrote: "I want Abe to run; then I want a picture of him splitting rails on the Sangamon Bottom, with 50 cts per hundred marked on a chip placed in the fork of a tree nearby. I think it will win." (N. M. Knapp to Ozias M. Hatch, Winchester, Illinois, 12 March 1860, Hatch Papers, Lincoln Presidential Library, Springfield.); 32mo; Signed by Author

        Tales of All Countries [Second Series]

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1863. First edition. Hardcover. Fine. A Near Fine to Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, of this rather scarce short story collection, bound in 3/4 blue half-leather with coordinated blue cloth, top edge of the closed page blocks gilded (tiny rubs to board and spine corners); a collection of nine short stories previously separately published in various periodicals. One of the scarcer of Trollope's titles, Tales of All Countries (Second Series) is placed by Sadleir as the first entry in his "B" section of Trollope scarcities. (Sadleir divided Trollope's works into 4 categories of scarcity, "A" being scarcest and "D" being the most common.) Sadleir states in his Trollope bibliography: "This book holds a high place in the schedule of Trollope rarities. Undoubtedly the publishers found that the First Series of Tales of All Countries did not sell as well as they expected, and, therefore, having come regretfully to the conclusion that 'Trollope's popularity was as a novelist and not as a short-story writer, they placated their important author by publishing the book on the same terms as the First Series, but - I suspect - safeguarded themselves by printing fewer copies than they were legally entitled to do." A nice copy of a scarce Trollope printed in considerably fewer numbers than were most of Trollope's works.

        MASTERPIECES OF INDUSTRIAL ART & SCULPTURE AT THE INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION, 1862

      London: Day & Son, 1863. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. With More than 300 Giant Folio Plates of Fine, Decorative, and Industrial Arts. 438 x 305 mm (17 1/4 x 12"). Three volumes. FIRST EDITION. IMPRESSIVE CONTEMPORARY RED MOROCCO, LAVISHLY GILT, covers with wide filigree frame, central panel with very prominent scrolling cornerpieces, upper covers with gilt titling, raised bands, spines gilt in compartments filled with a riot of gilt flourishes and small tools, turn-ins with decorative gilt roll, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt and intricately gauffered. With 304 SOMETIMES STRIKING CHROMOLITHOGRAPH PLATES (comprising the 300 plates called for, plus an extra illustrated title page to each volume and plate "300A"). Facing text in English and French. Front pastedowns with "Carpe Diem" bookplate of James Hall. Corners with slight wear, morocco with one small abrasion, one small spot, and one small dent, the imposing bindings otherwise unusually bright, clean, and well preserved. Top corner of perhaps half the leaves in volume III with small (usually very small) dampstain, one leaf with repaired tear at inner margin, otherwise the text and plates (and even the tissue guards) as clean and smooth as the day the books were published. This is an illustrated collection of more than 1,000 fine objects presented at the 1862 International Exhibition, pictured here in large-format chromolithography and offered in imposing bindings almost enveloped with gold. Among the many works of fine, decorative, and industrial arts are fabrics, rugs, jewelry, ceramics, glassware, sculptures, furniture, plates, silver, wallpaper designs, and many other (sometimes magnificent) works. The plates were chromolithographed by and under the direction of W. R. Tymms, A. Warren, and G. MacCulloch from photographs supplied by the London Photographic and Stereoscopic Company, taken exclusively for this work by Stephen Thompson. Architect and painter John Burley Waring (1825-75) selected the items for inclusion and has described each (in English and French) as well as provided details about the artists and artisans. Waring was superintendent of the works of ornamental art and sculpture in the Manchester exhibition of 1857, and edited "Art Treasures of the United Kingdom" (1858). The present book is not uncommon, but it is infrequently found so handsomely bound and is almost never encountered in such fine condition.

        THE DAILY CITIZEN. THURSDAY, JULY 2, 1863

      Vicksburg, Ms.: J.M. Swords, Proprietor, 1863.. Folio broadside, printed on wallpaper. Old folds, closed tear in blank margin of one fold, some spotting. Very good. The newspapers printed on wallpaper in Vicksburg during its siege were widely noted at the time, and the Union troops who took possession of the city on July 4 completed and distributed the last issue standing in type. Numerous facsimile versions were published later. This is the first reproduction issue, probably produced in the North as a commemoration later in 1863. Brigham identifies this as the first reproduction, noting its minor variations from the original, mainly the substitution of the article, "Recent Federal Losses at Vicksburg," in the last column. Brigham details some twenty facsimile versions. Brigham, "Wall-Paper Newspapers of the Civil War" in BIBLIOGRAPHICAL ESSAYS FOR WILBERFORCE EAMES (New York, 1924), pp.203-9.

        The Northern Territory of South Australia

      Adelaide: W. C. Cox, Government Printer, 1863. Slim octavo, 54 pp., large folding map (a little split at a few of the folds), a very good copy with the errata slip bound in, preserved in polished half calf with gilt lettering by Bayntun. The wild north awaits. Detailed report published in response to the Crown's decision to annexe the present-day Northern Territory to the colony of South Australia. This act increased the area of South Australian territory by over half a million square miles. The report summarises early exploration reports on the area (including Stuart and Leichhardt) revealing a vast area of rich natural resources. Accordingly, the geographical survey is followed by speculation on tropical fruits and other crops suitable for cultivation, and the prospects for grazing in the top end (extracted from Earl's {i Handbook for Colonists in Tropical Australia }published in Singapore the previous year) . Of additional interest is the large map, an impressive example of colonial South Australian lithographic printing, and entirely compiled at the office of the Surveyor General in Adelaide.

        MASTERPIECES OF INDUSTRIAL ART & SCULPTURE AT THE INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION, 1862

      London: Day & Son, 1863. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. With More than 300 Giant Folio Plates of Fine, Decorative, and Industrial Arts. 438 x 305 mm (17 1/4 x 12").Three volumes. FIRST EDITION. IMPRESSIVE CONTEMPORARY RED MOROCCO, LAVISHLY GILT, covers with wide filigree frame, central panel with very prominent scrolling cornerpieces, upper covers with gilt titling, raised bands, spines gilt in compartments filled with a riot of gilt flourishes and small tools, turn-ins with decorative gilt roll, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt and intricately gauffered. With 304 SOMETIMES STRIKING CHROMOLITHOGRAPH PLATES (comprising the 300 plates called for, plus an extra illustrated title page to each volume and plate "300A"). Facing text in English and French. Front pastedowns with "Carpe Diem" bookplate of James Hall. Corners with slight wear, morocco with one small abrasion, one small spot, and one small dent, the imposing bindings otherwise unusually bright, clean, and well preserved. Top corner of perhaps half the leaves in volume III with small (usually very small) dampstain, one leaf with repaired tear at inner margin, otherwise the text and plates (and even the tissue guards) as clean and smooth as the day the books were published. This is an illustrated collection of more than 1,000 fine objects presented at the 1862 International Exhibition, pictured here in large-format chromolithography and offered in imposing bindings almost enveloped with gold. Among the many works of fine, decorative, and industrial arts are fabrics, rugs, jewelry, ceramics, glassware, sculptures, furniture, plates, silver, wallpaper designs, and many other (sometimes magnificent) works. The plates were chromolithographed by and under the direction of W. R. Tymms, A. Warren, and G. MacCulloch from photographs supplied by the London Photographic and Stereoscopic Company, taken exclusively for this work by Stephen Thompson. Architect and painter John Burley Waring (1825-75) selected the items for inclusion and has described each (in English and French) as well as provided details about the artists and artisans. Waring was superintendent of the works of ornamental art and sculpture in the Manchester exhibition of 1857, and edited "Art Treasures of the United Kingdom" (1858). The present book is not uncommon, but it is infrequently found so handsomely bound and is almost never encountered in such fine condition.
