        Wanderings in West Africa from Liverpool to Fernando Po

      Two volumes. Original purple-brown cloth. Folding map as frontispiece to Volume I, plate of the JuJu House as frontispiece to Volume II. Spines a touch sunned, light wear, but an excellent set. First edition. This is Burton's first book on his years in West Africa including detailed accounts of his amazing adventures inland. "Newly married and needing employment, Burton approached the Foreign Office for a consular position, hoping for the post at Damascus. Instead, he was offered the consulship at Fernando Po, a small, unhealthy island in the Bight of Biafra on the west African coast. When he accepted the position on 27 March 1861 he requested to retain his commission in the Bombay army, but he was struck from the list, thereby losing not only his half pay but also any prospect of a pension or sale of his commission, an action about which he always complained bitterly. Burton did not permit Isabel to accompany him to Fernando Po, which he described as 'the very abomination of desolation'. He slipped away from the post at every opportunity for excursions on the African mainland or to meet Isabel in the Canaries or England. Although he loathed Fernando Po, he worked continuously at his writing with Wanderings in West Africa and Abeokuta and the Cameroons Mountains both appearing in 1863″ (ODNB). Burton originally intended to issue the book anonymously, and a few copies are known with no name on the spine, but most often they are as here, credited to "R. F. Burton F.R.G.S." on the spine and just "a F.R.G.S." on the title page. This pseudonym "may have been a slap at the Royal Geographical society, for Burton was at odds with the organization's leadership at the time over the matter of the Nile's sources. The acerbic dedication was 'to the true friends of Africa - not the "Philanthropist" or to Exeter Hall'" (Casada).

Edward B. Sawyer was absent on medical leave, Lt. Col. Addison W. Preston led the Vermont cavalrymen through the Battle of Gettysburg. After battling Confederate General J.E.B. Stuart's cavalry at Hanover, Pennsylvania, on June 30, the 1st Vermont Cavalry joined the Union line on the extreme left near the Round Tops. Throughout July 3, they joined a dismounted attack on the Confederate right flank, and a mounted assault late in the afternoon pushed back the Confederates but left 67 of their regiment - 10 percent of the 675 engaged - dead. In the aftermath, they were one of the regiments harassing General Robert E. Lee's retreating Confederate army as it hurried toward the Potomac River and the safety of Virginia.Addison Webster Preston (1831-1864) was born in Burke, Vermont, and moved as a child to Danville. He entered Brown University, but left due to ill health. He sailed to Australia and then to California, where he spent several years before returning to Danville. Preston enlisted as a captain in the 1st Vermont Cavalry in September 1861, and was promoted to Lt. Col. in September 1862. He was wounded at Hagerstown in the Gettysburg Campaign and again two months later at Culpeper Court House. Appointed colonel on April 29, 1864, he was killed in action on June 3, 1864, at Hawe's Shop, Virginia. He left a widow and two children. Brigadier General George A. Custer said over his body, "There lies the best fighting colonel in the Cavalry Corps."[1] Leitersburg, MD.[2] In the words of 1st Vermont diarist Horace Ide, "We sat right down before Lee's Army, and they had to remove us before he could proceed." Some of the regiment captured at Hagerstown were sent to Andersonville Prison in Georgia, where eventually 57 members of the 1st Vermont Cavalry died. Joseph D. Collea Jr., The First Vermont Cavalry in the Civil War: A History (Jefferson, NC: McFarland & Company, Inc., 1010), 187.[3] A report of the regiment's actions from June 30 to July 8, authored by Preston, appeared in the Rutland Weekly Herald (VT), 6 August 1863, 3:1-2.[4] Edward B. Sawyer (1828-1918), colonel of the 1st Vermont Cavalry from September 1862 to April 1864.[5] Engaged in battles at Port Conway, Virginia, on August 25 and September 1, 1863.[6] Engaged at James City, Virginia, on October 10, 1863, against Confederate cavalry under Wade Hampton.

        Autograph Letter Signed to James T. Fields

      Concord, 16 September 1863 - In this wonderful letter to his close friend and publisher James T. Fields, Nathaniel Hawthorne discusses the presentation copies of Our Old Home, which was scheduled to be published three days later on September 19, 1863. Hawthorne writes, “Dear Fields, On the other page is the list of presentation people; and (with four [altered from three] copies bestowed when I saw you) it amounts to twenty-four, which your liberality and kindness allow me . I held my pen suspended over one or two of the names, doubting whether they deserved of me so especial a favor as a portion of my heart and brain. I have few friends. Some authors, I should think, would require half the edition for private distribution . Your friend, Nathl Hawthorne.” This remarkable letter explains the rarity of inscribed presentation copies of Our Old Home (none at auction in at least 40 years): Hawthorne arranged for these presentation copies to be distributed directly by the publisher. Presumably these are the copies inscribed “From the author” in a clerk’s hand. The recipient of this letter, James T. Fields (of the celebrated publishing firm Ticknor and Fields), was one of Hawthorne’s closest friends and greatest influences. Hawthorne once told Fields, “I care more for your good opinion than for that of a host of critics, and have excellent reason for so doing; inasmuch as my literary success, whatever it has been or may be, is the result of my connection with you.” It was Fields who convinced Hawthorne to transform The Scarlet Letter from a short story into a novel in 1850. Late in the author’s life, after publishing a series of Hawthorne’s essays in The Atlantic Monthly, Fields persuaded the author to collect them in the book published as Our Old Home in 1863. Hawthorne died the following year, and Fields served as his pallbearer alongside Emerson, Holmes, Alcott, Whipple, and Longfellow. This is a splendid letter reflecting Hawthorne’s famously reclusive nature and explaining the rarity of inscribed copies of Our Old Home. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Notice of a General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy.

      London: John Murray,, 1863. [read before the Economic Science and Statistics Section of the British Association at Cambridge] in: Report of the Thirty-Second Meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science; Held at Cambridge in October 1862. Octavo (212 x 130 mm). Recent half calf and marbled boards, spine decorated gilt in compartments, red and black labels. Ministry of Defence and Admiralty library stamps to title and several other leaves. 4 folding tables and 3 folding plates. One fore-edge shaved, title page re-hinged and slightly short at fore-edge; a good copy. First edition of the complete volume of reports of the 32nd annual meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, (over 750 pages long), including - in the section on Statistical Science - Jevons's 2-page Notice of a General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy (pp. 158-9). "Jevons's attempts to make a career as a journalist in London met with little success and he followed up a suggestion made by his cousin, Henry Enfield Roscoe, who was already Professor of Chemistry at Owens College, Manchester, that he should apply for a vacancy there as a general tutor. When Jevons took up this very junior post in 1863 he was quite unknown even in academic circles, but he had already produced two works which were to prove of seminal importance in economics - his 'Brief Account of a General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy', first read before the British Association in 1862, and his outstanding applied research into changes in the value of gold." (R. D. Collison Black in The New Palgrave). "Statistical data in general,and time series in particular, had always a fascination for Jevons. With the instinct of a natural scientist he looked for rhythms and patterns in them, and one quality of time series which seems particularly to have intrigued him from his student days onwards was periodicity. In support of this assertion it may be pointed out that Jevons submitted two papers to section F of the British Association in 1862. One was his 'Brief Account of a General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy', then ignored but now renowned as the first statement of his new ideas in the area of value theory; the other [also present in this volume, pp. 157-158] was entitled 'On the Study of Periodic Commercial Fluctuations'". (ibid.) In a letter to his son Herbert of 14 September 1862, Jevons wrote: "I may also undertake some other articles. I have resolved however at last to let out my theory of Economy, & have accordingly written a short paper entitled 'Notice of a general mathematical theory of Economy' which will I hope be read at the Brit. Assoc. meeting at the beginning of next month. Although I know pretty well the paper is worth perhaps all the others that will be read there put together, I cannot pretend to say how it will be received, whether it will be read at all, or whether it won't be considered nonsense. Our family have not half enough humbug. One part of our composition with five of humbug would make a first character. If I had even a small percentage of HER'S ways, I should by this time have been soaring up in the regions of fame ease & fortune, instead of labouring away in obscurity & without a half penny of profit." (Papers and Correspondence of William Stanley Jevons II, p. 452).

Gettysburg, PA: Horner Enterprises, 1997. 90 pages, illustrated, telling the story of physician brothers before and after the battle.Robert Horner (1825-1899) attended Pennsylvania College from 1842 to 1845, and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Medical School in 1849. One of the few local physicians, he and more than 30 other surgeons were posted to Camp Letterman to treat nearly 1,600 patients, roughly half of whom were Confederates. His wife, Mary Ann Horner, served as a nurse. In 1864, he opened a drugstore in Gettysburg, but returned to his medical practice in 1869. He died on July 1, 1899, the 36th anniversary of the first day of the battle.Dr. Henry Janes (1832-1915) was the regimental surgeon of the 3rd Vermont Infantry from June 1861. He was detailed to run two hospitals for the Antietam wounded, then was appointed medical officer of 2nd Division, VI Corps. After the battle of Fredericksburg, he went under flag of truce across enemy lines to treat and repatriate wounded Union soldiers. Janes traveled with VI Corps to the battle of Gettysburg where he treated soldiers of both armies at the sprawling hospital complex named after Dr. Jonathan Letterman, Medical Director of the Army of the Potomac. When the Army left to pursue Lee, Letterman put Janes in charge of all the hospitals at Gettysburg. Faced with caring for more than 20,000 wounded soldiers, Janes constantly strove to improve the medical service, including work on procedures for treating major gunshot wounds besides amputation, saving the lives and limbs of hundreds of soldiers.

Eduard Hildebrandt was born in Danzig in 1817, he studied with the marine artist Wilhelm Krause, and with Eugene Isabey in Paris, winning three medals at the Paris salon in 1843. On his return to Berlin, his talent as a landscape painter attracted the attention of Alexander von Humboldt, who recommended him to the Prussian king, Friedrich Wilhelm IV. As a result he was made Painter to the Royal Court, and was supported in his subsequent extensive, and expensive, travels. Between 1844 and 1851 he travelled throughout the Americas, Europe and the Levant and in 1862-4 his Reise um die Erde (Journey round the World) took him from Trieste through Suez to India, and on to China, Japan, the Pacific and back via California and Central America.

        Notice of a General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy. [read before the Economic Science and Statistics Section of the British Association at Cambridge] in: Report of the Thirty-Second Meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science; Held at Cambridge in October 1862.

      London: John Murray, 1863 - Octavo (212 x 130 mm). Recent half calf and marbled boards, spine decorated gilt in compartments, red and black labels. One fore-edge shaved, title page re-hinged and slightly short at fore-edge; a good copy. Ministry of Defence and Admiralty library stamps to title and several other leaves. 4 folding tables and 3 folding plates. First edition of the complete volume of reports of the 32nd annual meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, (over 750 pages long), including - in the section on Statistical Science - Jevons's 2-page Notice of a General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy (pp. 158-9). "Jevons's attempts to make a career as a journalist in London met with little success and he followed up a suggestion made by his cousin, Henry Enfield Roscoe, who was already Professor of Chemistry at Owens College, Manchester, that he should apply for a vacancy there as a general tutor. When Jevons took up this very junior post in 1863 he was quite unknown even in academic circles, but he had already produced two works which were to prove of seminal importance in economics - his 'Brief Account of a General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy', first read before the British Association in 1862, and his outstanding applied research into changes in the value of gold." (R. D. Collison Black in The New Palgrave). "Statistical data in general,and time series in particular, had always a fascination for Jevons. With the instinct of a natural scientist he looked for rhythms and patterns in them, and one quality of time series which seems particularly to have intrigued him from his student days onwards was periodicity. In support of this assertion it may be pointed out that Jevons submitted two papers to section F of the British Association in 1862. One was his 'Brief Account of a General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy', then ignored but now renowned as the first statement of his new ideas in the area of value theory; the other [also present in this volume, pp. 157-158] was entitled 'On the Study of Periodic Commercial Fluctuations'". (ibid.) In a letter to his son Herbert of 14 September 1862, Jevons wrote: "I may also undertake some other articles. I have resolved however at last to let out my theory of Economy, & have accordingly written a short paper entitled 'Notice of a general mathematical theory of Economy' which will I hope be read at the Brit. Assoc. meeting at the beginning of next month. Although I know pretty well the paper is worth perhaps all the others that will be read there put together, I cannot pretend to say how it will be received, whether it will be read at all, or whether it won't be considered nonsense. Our family have not half enough humbug. One part of our composition with five of humbug would make a first character. If I had even a small percentage of HER'S ways, I should by this time have been soaring up in the regions of fame ease & fortune, instead of labouring away in obscurity & without a half penny of profit."

Eugène Daumas (1803–1871) was posted to Algeria in 1835, and from 1837 to 1839 was consul at Mascara, during which time he won the respect of Abd El-Kader, the leader of the native resistance to the French invasion, who after his surrender in 1847 was taken to France and lived in gilded captivity. Daumas was widely recognised as the French Army's leading expert on Arab culture, and on his return to France in 1850 was made director of Algerian affairs in the Ministry of War. The original French edition appeared in 1851 as Les Chevaux du Sahara et les mœurs du désert.
