        Roundabout Papers in Original Publisher’s Boards First US Edition 1863

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1863. This is a very scarce US first edition in the original purple cloth. Published by Harper & Brothers [New York] in 1863, the title page reads: “Reprinted from the Cornhill Magazine”, which was edited by Thackeray. The date 1863 is given below the publisher’s details on the title page. The original boards are now faded with areas that show what the purple boards would have looked like 145 years ago. The spine with the gilt lettering is now faded and the gilt is barely legible, with knocks to the top and bottom of the spine. The frontispiece “”Sir J-sh-a R-n-lds in a domino. Dr G-ldsm-th in an old English dress”” is fantastic and is separated from the title page by its original tissue guard. This book has excellent illustrations throughout on relatively clean pages with only occasional minor light foxing; complete with the Harper & Brothers’ 8-page catalogue to the end of the book.An excellent example of this hard to find first edition by William Makepeace Thackeray . First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Good/No Jacket.

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

      [Washington]: Charles G. Krebs, lithographer, [1863].. Map, 24 x 19 inches. Matted. 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. The map extends from just west of Vicksburg to just east of Jackson, with Natchez and the northern border of Louisiana marking the north and south boundaries of the map. All the major roads and railroads are delineated, as are the many rivers and streams. A red printed line shows the path of General 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, but also drew on military and scouting reports and covert agents to assemble to most detailed possible maps detailing places, roads, railroads, natural features. A fine copy of a map detailing this important Union victory. LC CIVIL WAR MAPS 290.

Blind embossed border surrounding front board. Tight binding and solid boards. Minimal shelf wear. Slight bumping to corners. Minor scuffing to spine ends. Rubbing to boards and spine. Inscribed by the famed Union General, Powell Clayton on both endpaper and inside pages. Other pages are clean and unmarked.<br><br>Henry Wager Halleck, known also by the nickname of "Old Brains," was a scholar, lawyer, and United States Army officer. Early in the American Civil War, he was a senior Union Army commander in the Western Theater and then served for almost two years as general-in-chief of all U.S. armies. Halleck was a cautious general who believed strongly in thorough preparations for battle and in the value of defensive fortifications over quick, aggressive action. Although not known for his effectiveness in the field of duty, he was a master of administration, logistics, and the politics necessary at the top of the military hierarchy. This expertise allowed him to compose Elements of Military Art and Science; a thorough dissertation on proper military rule.<br><br>The signer of the volume, General Powell Clayton was an engineer, a Union Army general in the American Civil War, the first Reconstruction Governor of the State of Arkansas, and Ambassador to Mexico during the administrations of William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt. He is known primarily for his actions during the occupation of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, where he succesfully repulsed a three-pronged confederate attack of the forces of General John S. Marmaduke.<br><br>This volume, well-preserved and in very good condition would make an exceptional addition to the library of any American Civil War or military history enthusiast. Ships daily.

        Wanderings in West Africa from Liverpool to Fernando Po

      Tinsley Brothers, London 1863 - Two volumes in the rare first state binding (without Burton';s name on the spines), with a "second edition" slug on the title pages. This state was unknown to Penzer and was probably the result of an attempt to boost sales by the publisher. It is otherwise unchanged from the first. Plate of Julu house is the frontispiece to Volume I, and the map (now detached and laid in) is in Volume II. . Both volumes lightly bumped/rubbed, but clean and sound. Very good. Burton';s account of his journeys into Sierra Leone and Nigeria to investigate stories of gold and gold mining are credited with drawing public attention to mining prospects in the region.

        MAP OF VICKSBURG AND VICINITY [manuscript title]

      [Np. nd, but ca. 1863].. Manuscript map, 14 x 19 inches. Old folds. Some small loss at folds, evidence of older repairs present. Minor soiling. About very good. Framed. Manuscript map of the battlefield at Vicksburg and the camp of the 114th Illinois Infantry as of June 18, 1863, drawn by Lieutenant James T. Workman, a member of the regiment. The map indicates the movements of armies and skirmishes, including where Sherman&#39;s corps crossed the Big Black River on May 18th, 1863 and both Sherman and McPherson&#39;s route to Mill Springs. In the lower right corner, Workman notes that the flags indicate where battles were fought. Sites include Jackson, Raymond and "Bayou." In the lower left corner he notes: "The 114th Ills. left Duck Pt May 2nd, 1863 and marches as the figures denote; performing a march of 200 miles in 17 days and in the mean time was engaged in the Battle of Jackson and destroyed 10 miles of R. Road. The Regt. was engaged in front of the rebels works around V[icksbur]g from May 19th to 31st, losing in killed and wounded 16 men. The figures will show the present Camp of the 114th, June 18th." Two weeks later the Confederate forces at Vicksburg surrendered, on July 4, 1863. The 114th Illinois Infantry was formed in September 1862, and by November they were on active duty with Sherman&#39;s army, fighting throughout the South. A line guided by arrows traces the route of the 114th from Duck Point on the Mississippi River, along a bayou and across the river, to Rock Springs and Jackson before heading back west to the siege of Vicksburg. Workman survived the war and mustered out of the army in September 1864. A handsome and detailed manuscript map drawn by a Union soldier.

"In the autumn of 1847 Mr. A.[lfred] R.[ussell] Wallace, who has since acquired wide fame in connection with the Darwinian theory of Natural Selection, proposed to me a joint expedition to the river Amazons, forthe purpose of exploring the Natural History of its banks; the plan being to make for ourselves a collection of objects, dispose of the duplicates inLondon to pay expenses, and gather facts, as Mr. Wallace expressed it in one his letters, 'towards solving the problem of the origin of species'. [.] My companion left the country at the end of four years; [.] I remainedseven years longer, returning home in July, 1959. [.] The part of the Amazons region where I resided longest being unexplored country to the Naturalist, no less than 8000 of the species here enumerated were new to science."- from the preface.

He hunted in the lands of the Amatongas and Zulus where he collected hippopotamus, lion, eland, rhinoceros, buffalo, kudu and Giraffe. Near Lake Ngami, he bagged elephant, then crossed the Tugela River on his way to the Zambesi &#133; where he encountered buffalo and lion." (Czech) Mendelssohn commends Baldwin&#39;s "simple and unostentatious" style, remarking that he "he went through more adventures than almost all of the great South African travellers and hunters."

        Palais de Glace

      Paris . Size: 440 x 660 mm Framed size: 680 X 835 mm Lithograph. Printed colour. Very good condition. Georges Goursat (1863-1934), known as Sem, attained a high level of success with his wonderful portrayals of Paris at the turn of the century. This outstanding caricaturist was a member of the Salon des Humoristes and an officer of the Legion of Honor. His works offer us glimpses into Parisian high society at the turn of the century. Sem&#39;s unique talent made his work very identifiable, particularly because of the essential sobriety of his composition, in which his characters usually emerge from a white or plain background rather than being more obvious caricatures. Sem captured the spirit of the subject and in turn produced images that were true to life.

"This exhaustive study of acoustics ranks as one of the greatest books on the subject and shows that Helmholtz was, besides being a great physicist and physician, an accomplished musician" (Garrison-Morton). Helmholtz's resonance theory of hearing, expounded in this work, remained unchallenged for decades. Helmholtz also explained that differences in timbre result from differences in upper partial tones, which depend in turn on how the fundamental is produced., and he applied this observation to music theory to explain that consonance and dissonance are produced by more or less coincident upper partial tones. "This foundation treatise on audition has been termed the Principia of physiological acoustics" (Grolier/Horblit). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London: Wm. H. Allen & Co.. Complete two volume set bound in publisher&#39;s brick-red cloth. 1863. 1st edition. hb. 8vo, pp. 374, 317. First published in 1863, re-printed in 1865 and, in modern format, re-printed in 1963 (although WorldCat says 1973). . Godfrey Thomas Vigne (1801-1863) attended Harrow and studied law at Lincoln&#39;s Inn. He visited the United States in 1831 and published an account of his observations the following year. In the same year he left for India, spending the next seven years travelling throughout Kashmir, Landak, and parts of Central Asia. He published his accounts of these travels in two books (1840 and 1842) which together give a valuable view of northern and western India immediately before the imposition of British control. Commencing in 1852, Vigne visited the West Indies, Mexico, and Nicaragua and passed northwards through New Orleans to New York City. He died in England in July, 1863, whilst completing the manuscript for this book. The publisher&#39;s Preface observes that Vigne was neither a professional author nor a commissioned tourist. [He] travelled for his own amusement, saw much, and was assisted in his observations by the possession of some knowledge of science (vol. XX, p. 309). A very scarce title, no copies currently being offered for sale, and none having recently come to auction. Illustrated with, inter alia, two coloured stone lithographed frontispieces; one of the "Chief of the Chippeways" and the other being a "Sioux Chief". The binding of vol. I is worn and soiled, with small pulls to the spine ends. The endpapers are tight, although the binding is sprung. Occasional foxing throughout. Vol. II is bumped but in better condition, with less soiling and the binding being tight. The folding map of South America at the end of the book has been professionally repaired. .

        Roundabout Papers in Original Publisher's Boards First US Edition 1863

      This is a very scarce US first edition in the original purple cloth. Published by Harper & Brothers [New York] in 1863, the title page reads: 'Reprinted from the Cornhill Magazine', which was edited by Thackeray. The date 1863 is given below the publisher's details on the title page. The original boards are now faded with areas that show what the purple boards would have looked like 145 years ago. The spine with the gilt lettering is now faded and the gilt is barely legible, with knocks to the top and bottom of the spine. The frontispiece ''Sir J-sh-a R-n-lds in a domino. Dr G-ldsm-th in an old English dress'' is fantastic and is separated from the title page by its original tissue guard. This book has excellent illustrations throughout on relatively clean pages with only occasional minor light foxing; complete with the Harper & Brothers' 8-page catalogue to the end of the book.An excellent example of this hard to find first edition by William Makepeace Thackeray

        Artocarpus Polyphema [Chempedak]

      Brussels: C. Muquardt, [circa 1863-1885]. Chromolithograph, by P.Depannemaeker. Very good condition apart from a few light foxing marks. 21 3/4 x 15 5/8 inches. A fine example of the spectacular botanical work by Berthe Hoola Van Nooten, from 'Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java'. Closely related to the Jackfruit, the Chempedek is a large deciduous fruit tree native to Malaysia and Indonesia. Its large fleshy fruit is extremely fragrant and a popular source of food. In her early twenties, Hoola Van Nooten had accompanied her husband to Jakarta (Batavia), capital of Java, where he died. She was left with debts to pay and a family to support. With great ingenuity, she managed to get a selection of her paintings chromolithographed and published under the title Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java Peints D'Après Nature, the first edition of which appeared in 1863-4. "Van Nooten was clearly more than competent, for the splendid tropical plants&#133; have been depicted with great skill. She managed to accentuate the splendour of each species by adopting a style that combined great precision and clarity with a touch of neo-Baroque exuberance, revelling in the rich forms and colours of the tropics." (L. Tongiorgi Tomasi An Oak Spring Flora p.330) Cf. Nissen BBI 931; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 3025; cf. L. Tongiorgi Tomasi An Oak Spring Flora 87.

        TALES OF ALL COUNTRIES. [Second Series]

      1863. London: Chapman & Hall, 1863. Original blind-stamped blue cloth. First Edition. Like the first series published two years earlier, this is a collection of Trollope short stories sited in various places around the globe -- such as Egypt, Palestine, Munich, Bermuda and Rome. All had appeared in magazines, but not in book form.~Sadleir notes that this "Second Series" is considerably scarcer than the first, ranking it at the head of his "B" list of titles ("A" being scarcest, "D" being least scarce):~ 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,... 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.~Sadleir specifies pale yellow endpapers for this book, but this copy has the same bright blue endpapers as were used in the First Series. This is a very good copy (spine ends a little ruffled, endpapers cracked). Sadleir 16. Housed in a morocco-backed slipcase.

        Zalacca Edulis [Salak Palm]

      Brussels: C. Muquardt, [circa 1863-1885]. Chromolithograph, by P.Depannemaeker. Very good condition apart from some very minor foxing and a small orange spot in the lower right corner of the sheet. 21 3/4 x 15 5/8 inches. A fine example of the spectacular botanical work by Berthe Hoola Van Nooten, from 'Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java'. Similar to the sago tree, the Salak Palm is native to Indonesia, and its edible spherical fruit is covered by a prickly, lizard-like epidermis. It belongs to the order of Palmaceae, which, as Hoola Van Nooten remarks, was regarded by the renowned English botanist John Lindley as "the most interesting of the vegetable kingdom; as well as on account of the majestic aspect of their towering stems, crowned with foliage still more gigantic, as from the character of their grandeur which they impress upon the landscape of the countries they inhabit; their immense value to mankind as affording nourishment, clothing and numerous objects of economical importance, and the prodigious development of their reproductive organs." Hoola Van Nooten had accompanied her husband to Jakarta (Batavia), capital of Java, where he died. She was left with debts to pay and a family to support. With great ingenuity, she managed to get a selection of her paintings chromolithographed and published under the title Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java Peints D'Après Nature, the first edition of which appeared in 1863-4.

        Hints to Company Officers on Their Military Duties

      New York: D. Van Nostrand, 1863. One of the rarest books on Civil War leadership and the responsibilities of Company officers. The principal portion of this work was written while the author was confined as a prisoner of war in the State of Georgia, and contains, in a small compass, a large amount of information to Company Officers which can not be found in the "Regulations." An officer can not fail to be better qualified for a command after a careful perusal of its pages. Andrews served with the Third Regiment Minnesota Infantry, U.S. Volunteers, rising from his role as Lt. Colonel at Vicksburg to full Colonel at Fitzhugh&#39;s Woods and finally to Brigadier General at Pine Bluff. In 1865 he was assigned to the command of the Second Division of the VIII Corps and participated in the siege of Fort Blakely and then finished his role in command of the Mobile division where he was brevetted Major General. 68pp., (16)pp ads at rear. bound in red cloth lettered in gilt, spine blank but with a partial homemade paper label, brown coated endpapers, a bit of toning to page edges, foxing to preliminaries, a few very tiny nicks to spine and some soiling to covers, contemporary owner&#39;s name, otherwise a very good copy of this exceedingly rare work locating no auction records and not in Nevins. [see Minnesota in the Civil and Indian Wars 1861-1865]. First Edition. 18mo (6"x4").

        Ouverture de la Chasse au Bois de Boulogne

      Paris . Size: 500 x 665 mm Framed size: 680 X 835 mm Lithograph. Printed colour. Very good condition. Georges Goursat (1863-1934), known as Sem, attained a high level of success with his wonderful portrayals of Paris at the turn of the century. This outstanding caricaturist was a member of the Salon des Humoristes and an officer of the Legion of Honor. His works offer us glimpses into Parisian high society at the turn of the century. Sem&#39;s unique talent made his work very identifiable, particularly because of the essential sobriety of his composition, in which his characters usually emerge from a white or plain background rather than being more obvious caricatures. Sem captured the spirit of the subject and in turn produced images that were true to life.

      London,: Sampson Low, Son, & Co.,, 1863.. Octavo, with a tinted lithograph frontispiece and 13 tinted lithograph plates, large folding map loose in the endpocket; new endpapers but a very good copy in the original green cloth. First edition of this substantial London publication based on the papers of John Davis, a member of McKinlay's 1861 expedition in search of the ill-fated Burke and Wills. En route McKinlay investigated the land to the north of Lake Eyre, and then set out for the Gulf of Carpentaria.This London edition is generally seen as the "formal" account of the expedition, and was edited by William Westgarth, who also gives an introductory section on recent Australian inland exploration. The delicate tinted lithograph plates show in vivid detail the trials the party encountered in very remote territory.Maria, 57; Wantrup, 180.
