        The travels of Ludovico di Varthema in Egypt, Syria, Arabia, Deserta, Persia, India, and Ethiopia, A.D. 1503-1508. Translated from the Original Italian of 1510..

      London: Hakluyt Society, 1863. FIRST EDITION OF THIS TRANSLATION. Complete with 2 maps (1 folding). Blue cloth, gilt spine, gilt vignette on front board, both covers blind-stamped, corners slightly bumped and exterior somewhat rubbed; text is clean and bright. An excellent copy with the bookplate and withdrawn stamp from Exeter City Library on the front paste-down. First edition of this translation of the incredibly popular original Italian edition of 1510 detailing Ludovico di Varthema's extensive travels to Egypt, Syria, Arabia, Persia, India, and Ethiopia. Varthema is most well known for his escapades, among which he became the first European, non-Muslim to enter Mecca disguised as a pilgrim (a heinous crime at the time), which he details in the work. A raging success, this particular work exposed westerners to Eastern culture, religion, landscape, and customs and was the definitive work on the East for many years. Jones (1805-1881), a British librarian, translator, and editor, manages to capture the humor, simplicity and occasional exaggeration of Varthema. In addition to his work as an editor and translator for the Hakluyt Society, Jones served as the principal librarian of the British Museum from 1866-1873 and was the first president of the United Kingdom's Library Association in 1877.

        Bericht über ein fast vollständiges Skelet von Palapteryx ingens. Über dessen Restauration und die davon angefertigsten Gypsabgrüsse; mit einigen Bemerkungen über die Aufstellung der Vogelsskelete Überhaupt.

      Wien, Wilhelm Braumüller, 1863. Folio (32.5 x 24.7 cm). Title page, 12 pp., two large, mounted albumen photos (26.3 x 19.3 cm), tissue-guarded. Original printed wrappers; protective translucent sleeve.l A very rare paper, with very early photographs, on the North Island Giant Moa, a New Zealand bird that may have been the largest bird ever. It stood 12 feet tall and became extinct in the 1300s or sligthly later. Gustav Eberhard Jäger (1832-1917) was a German medical doctor and zoologist. He is perhaps best known for his invention and promotion of Jäger clothing. Jäger used a name introduced by Richard Owen in 1844, but the bird is now known as Dinornis novaezealandiae, a name introduced by Owen in 1843. The use of photography in descriptive zoology and palaeontology was, at the time, a novelty. A very good, clean copy. Not in Nissen IVB and ZBI.

        Catalogue of the Chicago Fine Art Gallery

      Chicago Fine Art Gallery, Chicago 1863 - Pink paper wraps with black lettering and decoration. 8 pp. with no illustrations. Quite rare, as this copy pre-dates and survived the Chicago fire of 1871. The cover title is: "Chicago Fine Art Gallery, Kingsbury Block, Randolph Street, Chicago, Connected with the Chicago Museum. Catalogue of Foreign and American Paintings and Statuary. Open Day and evening from 8 AM to 10 PM. Catalogue Ten Cents. Chicago: Kennedy & Campbell, Printers, Board Trade Building, 1863." The catalogue lists 101 paintings and 2 sculptures by both American and European artists. One entry ("Winona") includes a synopsis of the legend connected with the picture, and three others include texts of poetry. With a most charming and eloquently-written Introduction about the gallery and museum and their mission. Good. Very clean/tight contents but with fading to cover edges, art museum ex-lib. stamp/sticker on back cover, and the entire booklet folded in half vertically. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Catalogue des mollusques de l'Ile de la Réunion (Bourbon).

      - Paris, Dentu, 1863. 8vo (23.7 x 15.3 cm). Half title, title page with engraved vignette, 148 [4, 144] pp., 14 lithographed plates [numbered XXVII-XLI], all but one hand-coloured (as intended). Contemporary green embossed cloth with gilt title on the spine. Mint endpapers, speckled edges.l Very uncommon (Junk cat. 278: "scarce") work published as part of L. Maillard's "Notes sur l'Ile de la Réunion" (hence the odd plate numbering), and usually found as "Extrait", as is this copy. Gérard Paul Deshayes (1796-1875) was one of the foremost French malacologists and many of his works are beautifully illustrated. This catalogue has the fine plates engraved by E. Levasseur, arguably one of the best engravers from this period. Many species described here were new. Some very light spotting; the plates in this copy are the cleanest we have ever seen.

        Boussolle du Docteur Hamel perdue au grand plateau, à la catastrophe du 15 aout 1820, retrouvée au pied ou glacier des Bossons, le 17 juin 1863

      1863 - Original albumen photomontage, 21.6 x 10 cm. Very good. The earliest, and certainly the most infamous of disasters to befall climbers on Mont Blanc was the 1820 expedition of Dr. Joseph Hamel, a Russian naturalist and Counselor of State to the Czar, climbing after a heavy snowfall against the advice of his guides. Setting out from the village of Chamonix, the expedition consisted of four climbers and twelve local guides, three for each of the principals. Nearing the summit via the known route, between the Grand Plateau and the Rochers Rouges, the snow gave way and Hamel was engulfed in the snow. When he was able to extract himself, he witnessed an avalanche pouring down upon the others. The party was swept down 1200 feet, and three of the guides were buried in a crevasse under an insurmountable pile of snow.In August of 1861, Abroise Simond, a Chamonix guide, discovered portions of clothing and human remains near the lower end of the Glacier des Bossons, In the middle of June, 1863, more remains were discovered. There had long been speculations as to the amount of movement of the glaciers, and the discovery of the three guides some 6 miles from the point of their demise, settled the question - roughly 2 feet per day.This image of the scene of the Hamel's disaster, the recovery and the compass is certainly one of the earliest examples of photomontage - it emphatically brings together the three separate events into a complete visual statement of fact. Although photomontage was employed as a tool as early as 1857 by Oscar J. Rejlander, who combined some thirty separate negative to make his masterpiece, "The Two Ways of Life", Rejlander's picture tricks the viewer to believe that the event was seamless whole and captured in real time. There were several photographers active on Mont Blanc in the early 1860s: Auguste-Rosalie and Louis-Auguste Bisson, Aime Civale, Claude-Marie Ferrier, Adolphe Braun, Joseph-Eugène Savioz, and Joseph Tairraz. This photograph contains no signature nor mark of the maker. Joseph Tairraz - a member of his family was one of the guides lost on the Hamel expedition - did photograph the scene where the bodies were discovered in 1863; however, this does not appear to be his work. Stylistically, this closely resembles the work of the Bisson Frères.

        Civil War newspaper "The Daily Citizen" famous Wallpaper Edition

      Vicksburg MS, July 4, 1863. 11/25" x 19.5". "Newspaper, ""The Daily Citizen"", Vicksburg, MS, July 4, 1863. 1p, 11.25 x 19.5 in. An original printing of the famous ""Wallpaper Edition"" of the Daily Citizen, produced by Union forces after taking the city.Vicksburg had been surrounded for over three weeks at the time of surrender and had exhausted its supply of food and nearly everything else, including paper. Fine condition, expertly and imperceptibly repaired. Publisher J.M. Swords was determined to keep the Daily Citizen in circulation -- if only to boost the morale of Vicksburg's beleaguered citizens and soldiers -- so he turned to wallpaper. The final edition was dated July 2, but when Union soldiers found the press on the 4th they reissued the July 2 paper with a small note at the bottom of the fourth column reading:""Two days bring about great changes, The banner of the Union floats over Vicksburg. Gen. Grant has ""caught the rabbit;"" he has dined in Vicksburg, and he did bring his dinner with him. The ""Citizen"" lives to see it. For the last time it appears on ""Wall-paper."" No more will it eulogise the luxury of mule-meat and fricasseed kitten--urge Southern warriors to such diet never more, This is the last wall-paper edition, and is, excepting this note, from the types as we found them. It will be valuable hereafter as a curiosity.""This edition was reproduced many times, beginning soon after the war, to be distributed or sold as a souvenir. The reproductions are often mistaken for originals but several contrasting typographical errors in the originals and reproductions allow for reliable identification, and this particular copy exhibits all the markers of an original."

        The Geological Evidences of the Antiquity of Man with remarks on theories of the origin of species by variation

      John Murray, Albemarle Street, London 1863 - Thick 8vo: xvi,528pp, with two full-page wood-engraved plates and 58 figures in the text. Original green heavily embossed, pebble-grained cloth, upper cover with two gilt fossil vignettes, spine lettered in gilt, marbled end papers renewed with period examples. Near Fine or better, pages clean and fresh (barring mild foxing of first and final few leaves), binding tight and square (after expert and almost imperceptible restoration). A handsome, collectible copy. Norman 1400. Garrison-Morton 204.1. Freeman (British Natural History Books) 2369. Second Edition. Revised. First published in 1863, Antiquity of Man went through three editions that year, with a fourth and final edition appearing in 1873. Our copy appeared in April, 1863 (two months after the first edition), with alterations, corrections, and a new seven-page appendix. The book dealt with two linked scientific issues that rose to prominence in the preceding decade: the age of the human race and Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection. Geologists had finally established that "early humans lived alongside the mammoths and other extinct mammals of the glacial period, known by this time by Lyell's name, ‘Pleistocene’ (formerly his ‘Newer’ Pliocene). This locked the human species firmly into earth history, by extending human history far beyond the reach of textual records into a prehistory recorded only in fossil bones and stone artefacts. The bulk of Lyell's book was devoted to a rather derivative account of this research. . . [In addition, after publication of Darwin's Origin of Species] Lyell had to alter his entire perspective on the history of life, finally conceding that successively higher forms of life had been formed in the course of time. He even allowed that the human species was no exception, at least in its physical aspects; but he remained sceptical about the adequacy of Darwin's theory to account for the origin of the mental and moral aspects that were most distinctively human."

        Malacologie de l'Algérie, ou histoire naturelle des animaux Mollusques terrestres et fluviatiles, recueillis jusqu'à ce jour dans nos possessions du Nord de l'Afrique.

      Paris, Challamel ainé, (1863-) 1864. 2 volumes. Folio (362 x 270mm). pp. xii, 294; 380 with 58 (10 fully or partly hand-coloured) lithographed plates, 5 (4 hand-coloured) maps. Contemporary red half morocco, spines with green gilt lettered labels, red marbled boards. A fine complete set of this beautifully produced work and Bourguignat's magnum opus. Bourguignat is considered the 'bête noir' of French conchology. His principal interests were non-marine shells. 'Bourguignat maintained that species should be determined on arbitrarily chosen characters ... By exploiting it energetically Bourguignat was able to describe nearly a thousand so-called new species from European and African localities and in so doing alienated himself and his movement from the more conscientious students of European and African molluscs' (Dance, A History of Shell collecting p. 164). "Unfortunately his new 'formes' were presented to the world as if they were new species (and he usually referred to them as such): they were described fully and named binominally. Consequently they are nomenclaturally valid and cannot be dismissed out of hand no matter how questionable their validity in other respects. This means that a correct knowledge of the dates of issue of those publications in which they first appeared is still important. It is principally on this account that the following information is presented, for it concerns the dates of issue and mode of publication of a work in which Bourguignat introduced so many of his 'abstractions', the 'Malacologie de l'Algérie'" (Dance, J.R. Bourguignat's Malacologie de l'Algérie pp. 19-20). The excellent plates are by Arnoul and Levasseur. Printed wrapper of the first fascicule bound in at the first volume and printed wrapper of fascicule 4 bound in at the second volume. As all Bourguignat's publications it is rare as the edition was very small.//Nissen ZBI, 504; B.M.(Nat. Hist.)I, 214; also see S.P. Dance, 'J.R. Bourguignat's Malacologie de l'Algerie, 1863' (J. Soc.

Some slight bumping to the corners and rubbing to the head and foot of the spines and two small chips to the foot of the spine of volume 1. Otherwise, the bindings are in near-fine condition. The contents are fine. This is a very nice copy of a scarce and sought after work.Henry Walter Bates, born in Leicester in 1825, was one of the leading Victorian naturalists. In 1848, Bates set out with Alfred Russell Wallace for the Amazon where he travelled for eleven years collecting nearly 14,712 specimens (14,000 were insects) of which 8,000, as Bates explains in the preface, were "new to science". Bates, an autodidact, was an admirer of Darwin and was a firm supporter of the theory of evolution further evidence for which he was seeking in his Amazonian adventures. Bates's most important work was in the study of butterflies which gave rise to his discovery of an animal's mimicry of its predators for the purposes of protection. Darwin was sufficiently impressed with Bates's work to encourage him to write a book based on his time in South America. The result was this entertaining, vividly written and scientifically important two volume account.

        Boussolle du Docteur Hamel perdue au grand plateau, à la catastrophe du 15 aout 1820, retrouvée au pied ou glacier des Bossons, le 17 juin 1863

      , 1863. 1863. Original albumen photomontage, 21.6 x 10 cm. Very good. The earliest, and certainly the most infamous of disasters to befall climbers on Mont Blanc was the 1820 expedition of Dr. Joseph Hamel, a Russian naturalist and Counselor of State to the Czar, climbing after a heavy snowfall against the advice of his guides. Setting out from the village of Chamonix, the expedition consisted of four climbers and twelve local guides, three for each of the principals. Nearing the summit via the known route, between the Grand Plateau and the Rochers Rouges, the snow gave way and Hamel was engulfed in the snow. When he was able to extract himself, he witnessed an avalanche pouring down upon the others. The party was swept down 1200 feet, and three of the guides were buried in a crevasse under an insurmountable pile of snow.In August of 1861, Abroise Simond, a Chamonix guide, discovered portions of clothing and human remains near the lower end of the Glacier des Bossons, In the middle of June, 1863, more remains were discovered. There had long been speculations as to the amount of movement of the glaciers, and the discovery of the three guides some 6 miles from the point of their demise, settled the question - roughly 2 feet per day.This image of the scene of the Hamel's disaster, the recovery and the compass is certainly one of the earliest examples of photomontage - it emphatically brings together the three separate events into a complete visual statement of fact. Although photomontage was employed as a tool as early as 1857 by Oscar J. Rejlander, who combined some thirty separate negative to make his masterpiece, "The Two Ways of Life", Rejlander's picture tricks the viewer to believe that the event was seamless whole and captured in real time. There were several photographers active on Mont Blanc in the early 1860s: Auguste-Rosalie and Louis-Auguste Bisson, Aime Civale, Claude-Marie Ferrier, Adolphe Braun, Joseph-Eugène Savioz, and Joseph Tairraz. This photograph contains no signature nor mark of the maker. Joseph Tairraz - a member of his family was one of the guides lost on the Hamel expedition - did photograph the scene where the bodies were discovered in 1863; however, this does not appear to be his work. Stylistically, this closely resembles the work of the Bisson Frères.

        Sonnenuntergang an der asiatischen... [Asian Sunset]

      [Canton], 1863. Watercolour on paper, 210 x 300 mm; signed in pencil; mounted. Charming and atmospheric watercolour of the Guangzhou area, depciting the Pearl River at sundown, looking towards old Canton, with the Chigang Pagoda and the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees seen in the distance. The German painter Eduard Hildebrandt had studied in Berlin and Paris and was a friend of scientist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt. Under Humboldt's influence he took a voyage around the world in 1862-64, making watercolour views of the many places he visited. "Fantasies in red, yellow and opal, sunset, sunrise and moonshine, distances of hundreds of miles like those of the Andes and the Himalaya, narrow streets in the bazaars of Cairo or Suez, panoramas as seen from mast-heads, wide cities like Bombay or Pekin, narrow strips of desert with measure-less expanses of sky all alike display his quality of bravura" (Wikipedia).A note on the verso explains that the drawing's title was written on the old passepartout mount.

        Two letters from a female Confederate sympathizer in Pennsylvania to her aunt in New York City

      Greenwood, [Pennsylvania], 1863. Unbound. Very good. Two letters (one with 6-pages and one with 4-pages) measure approximately 4.5" x 6.5". Their envelopes are postmarked at Brookeville, Maryland; one is franked with a 3-cent Washington stamp (Scott #65), and the stamp is missing from the other. The letters and envelopes are in nice shape. Exceptional content from a female Confederate sympathizer regarding the New York City draft riots and General Lee's campaign through Maryland and Pennsylvania that culminated with its defeat at Gettysburg. Some of the content includes: "There are no cars now running to Hood Hills. The Confederates have possession of Frederick [Maryland] and have burned one of the railroad bridges, consequently the cars advance to farther than Ellicotts Mills. . . . I was [on] the last train that came as far as our station, we are not entirely cut off from Balto. . . . The excitement in the city was intense, streets barricaded with Logheads of tobacco, flour barrels, etc. anticipating a cavalry raid. Have not the Confeds behaved as true Southerners in Pennsylvania! The contrast is so great between their conduct and that of the federals on Virginia soil. Gen. Lee is near Leesburg threatening Hooker and 'tis said, determined to take Washington. On Sunday there was an incessant roar of cannon. . . . There must have been a severe battle though the papers spoke of it as mere artillery skirmishing, a true sign the Federals gained no advantage. As we sat upon the portico listening to the dreaded sound, I sadly thought of the many poor fellows lying in agony. . . . We anticipate with foreboding . . . the appearance of either army here. . . . A letter just received from Ester . . . the excitement is intense. Madison St. barricaded up to Aunt Glenn's door. The city being rapidly fortified. . . . We are at a loss to know where is a place of safety. The papers think Lee intends marching on Pittsburgh. . . . Through the papers we have terrible accounts of the scenes enacted in your midst this week. . . . Some of these horrors must have been perpetuated almost before your door but we trust none of you have been in anyway injured. Ma desires me to say that while such excitement prevails in [New York City] you and your family had much better pay us a visit. . . . I do not wonder many poor fellows object to the draft, but tis sad to read of the fiendish delight with which vengeance has been wreaked on many innocent. . . . I hope Mr. Gabriel Disosway will not be molested. I see the rioters have undisputed sway on Staten Island. . . . A wagon train gathering up all the Confederates left in their raid through our country, broken down horses and mules, old wagons, harness, etc. passed us on Wednesday. Halted a while before our gates, old contraband drivers, who in loud tones with terrible oaths expressed their detestation of their former mode of life to our servants, had no respect for the white officers with them and seemed to be on perfect equality. How it made my blood boil! The change of position of the armies will I suppose rid us again from such annoyance. . . . I saw in a Baltimore paper the marriage of Lieut. Clem Disosway to Miss Mary Lyber. . . but think during such a fearful times Miss Mattie's could not have been a joyous wedding. . . ." Of course, the armies did not again change position as after Gettysburg as General Lee's forces never marched north again. No doubt, Miss Rebecca was even more distressed when she later learned that Lieutenant Clem Disosway, had been murdered at Fort Magruder, Virginia by a private (perhaps a draftee) who was serving with him in the First New York Mounted Rifles. An exceptionally scarce pair of letters. As of 2017, no similar correspondence from a female Confederate sympathizer living in the North is recorded in OCLC, the Rare Book Hub, ABPC, or for sale in the trade.

        Iceland: Its Scenes and Sagas.

      London: Smith, Elder and Co. 1863. With 1 folding engraved, nicely restored map, 4 chromo-lithographs, 12 fullpage woodcuts and 17 textual illustr. + music. XLVIII + 448 pp. A few leaves weakly foxed, otherwise a well-preserved copy bound in nice three-quarter blue morocco richly gilt on spine and goldlines on boards, all edges gilt. Binding signed Tout Binder. Aged twenty-eight, Sabine Baring-Gould, the young writer and teacher, was fascinated by the tradition of the Icelandic sagas, and this was the catalyst for his adventure and the book that emerged from it. His voyage took him from the then tiny settlement of Reykjavik through remote and hostile terrain, passing through the empty expanse of Iceland's countryside. Baring-Gould provides a colourful account of an Icelandic society that has long since disappeared. Illustrated with Baring-Gould's own drawings, Iceland: Its Scenes and Sagas is an entertaining and eccentric insight into a world of myth and legend as well as a classic of natural and human observation.

        Recollections of Tartar Steppes and their Inhabitants.

      London. John Murray. 1863. Five full page wood engravings, xvi + 351pp, bound in a very worn half leather binding with the label of the London Library St James's Square on the upper cover, library labels and stamps including stamp stating that this copy was a duplicate and "Sold by order of the committee", closed tear upper edge of title page, a few pages loose but complete, some occasional pencilling and soiling. Lucy Atkinson accompanied her well known artist explorer husband Thomas Witlam Atkinson on his travels through Siberia and Central Asia between 1848 and 1853. In this account she tells an engaging story of their life and impressions on their travels. She was a remarkable woman who coped with the vicissitudes of travel including the birth of their son - delivered without medical attention at the beginning of an extreme Central Asian winter - in a matter of fact and engaged manner. One of the plates in the volume "The English travellers' interview with Chinese on the frontier of China" shows a scene where she and her husband sit on stools while engaged in a very interesting and pleasant intercourse with a group of Chinese soldiers one of whom holds their baby son, Alatau. In the text she describes how Alatau, "had been seized by the kaldi or superior officer, who almost devoured him with kisses, then the other two [soldiers] had him in succession, when he was passed back to the kaldi..." She goes on to describe in detail the conversation they had which required "five persons to carry on the conversation which went through four languages". This encounter, which is just one of the many detailed observations about the people they met on their travels and her reactions to them, mark this book out as a most readable and important early female travel account. Scarce.The London Library, the library from which this copy comes from, was founded in 1841, is still in existence today. Among its well-known Presidents are Thomas Carlyle (the founder), Alfred, Lord Tennyson, T.S. Eliot and Tom Stoppard. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 157866).
