        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift („Hahn“)

      Syra, 13. XII. 1863. 4 S., 4°. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - Hahn besuchte des Gymnasiums in Mainz und studierte von 1828 bis 1832 Rechtswissenschaften in Gießen und Heidelberg. Hahn betreute das preußische Konsulat in Athen, bevor man ihn durch Vermittlung Prokesch-Ostens 1851 zum Konsul in Syra und 1869 zum Generalkonsul in Athen ernannte. Hahn gilt als Begründer der Albanien-Forschung und wies u.a. die Zugehörigkeit des Albanischen zur indogermanischen Sprachfamilie nach. --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Knickspuren u. kl.

        Actos lejislativos de la Convención Nacional instalada en Rionegro el 4 de febrero de 1863.

      Bogotá: Impr. de la Nación 8vo. [1] f., 86 pp., vii pp.. [1863] The period 1840–80 in Colombian political history was characterized by swings between ascensions of the Liberals and of the Conservatives, the Liberals ruling without serious challenge in the last two decades of that period. This publication contains the Constitution of 1863 as ratified by the Ríonegro Convention as well as most of the other legislation that the Convention adopted. The constitution incorporated many anti-clerical measures, including separation of Church and state; full freedom of worship, even for non-Catholics; suppression of religious orders; prohibition of corporate ownership of real property (which amounted to prohibition of Church ownership of property); and governmental supervision of worship. The document also thoroughly decentralized power and made each state a virtual law unto itself. In an attempt to curb the power of Gen. Mosquera, the presidency was made an office of two-year duration, and immediate re-election or succession was barred. Important and rare: NUC Pre-1956 fails to locate any copies and WorldCat finds only two copies. Removed from a volume of pamphlets and now in later wrappers. Ownership mark eradicated from title-page. => A very good copy of a rare item.

        Vie de Jésus.

      Paris, Michel Lévy Frères, 1863. Royal 8vo. Bound in a very nice contemporary red half calf with five raised bands to spine, blindstamped borders to compartments and gilt title. Light occassional brownspotting, but overall a very nice, clean and tight copy, in- as well as externally. With the half-title present ("Histoire des Origines du Christianisme. Livre premier"). (4), LIX, (1), 462 pp. + (1) leaf (colophon).. True first edition of this seminal classic on the life of Jesus, which caused an immediate scandal when it appeared - Renan's masterpiece, which constitudes the first attempt to write a biography of Jesus the man and strongly puts forth the notion that the Bible too can be subject to historical investigation and critical scrutiny. The work enraged the Roman Catholic Church but was an immediate success in most of Europe. "In six months sixty thousand copies of the French edition had been sold and edition succeeded edition. Renan regarded the book as the first of a series on the "Origins of Christianity", which he continued with "The Apostles" (1866), "Saint Paul" (1869), "The Anti-Christ" (1873), "The Gospels" (1877), "The Christian Church" (1879) and "Marcus Aurelius" (1881) but none of these emulated the success of the "Life of Jesus"... Immediate success was partly a "succès de scandale" but this would not have kept the book alive. It is Renan's approach to the subject and his beautiful prose that gave it lasting eminence." (PMM 352). This groundbreaking work analyses the personality of the man Jesus, -a figure created by Renan out of his mind but based on historical sources. "It is a pastoral idyll with the central figure a gentle, albeit oracular visionary, his power to work miracles a part of his unique personality -the son of man, but not the Son of God... In this great work it seems clear that the audience he has found was the one he sought: the general reading public rather than the limited coterie of scholars; and there is no doubt of the fact or the degree of his success." (PMM 352). "C'est le livre plus célèbre d'Ernest Renan (1823-1892) et le premier volume de l'Hisoire des origines du Christianisme"... on peut considérer cette "Vie de Jésus" comme une oeuvre de vulgarisation: l'auteur cherche à déterminer ce qui, au point de vue "scientifique", est de créance dans la vie du Nazaréen?" (Laffont-Bompiani IV:681). Apart from causing a world-wide scandal, the work was also a world-wide success, and no matter how many harsh words can be said about the historical and religious contents of the work, there is no doubt about the fact that it influenced the destiny of Catholocism decisively and that it is a masterpiece of 19th century French literature. It is very elegantly written and is renowned for its description of the historical setting, charming descriptions of sceneries, its penetrating psychological analysis and its overall style and class. "Il faut ajouter que la "Vie de Jésus" compte au nombre des livres les mieux écrits de son temps; le charme de la peinture des paysages, le pittoresque géneralement exact des évocations historiques, l'analyse pénétrante de l'âme des personnages, des seductions du style enfin, n'ont pas été pour rien dans le succès universel de cette oeuvre." (Laffont-Bompiani IV:681). Ernest Renan (1823-1892) was a French philologist, philosopher and historian. His father died when he was aged five, and his mother wanted him to become a priest. Until he was about 16 years old, he was trained by the Church, but due to his investigative and truth-seeking nature as well as his studies (e.g. Hebrew), he was in doubt as to the historical truth of the Scriptures, and with the help of his sister he chose his own path in life. "He studied intensively the languages of the Bible and filled a number of minor academic positions, frequently encountering difficulties because of the heterodoxy and outspokenness of his religious opinions." (Printing and the Mind of Man 352). In 1840 he began studying philosophy and later philology, in 1847 he took his degree as Agrégé de Philosophie and became master at the Lycée of Vendome. After having returned from a mission to Italy in the year 1850 where he gathered material for his historical-philosophical masterpiece, "Averroës et l'Averroisme", he was offered employment at the "Bibliothèque Nationale" (at the manuscript department). In 1861 he was chosen to become professor of Hebrew at the Collège de France, but because the emperor refused to ratify the appointment (inspired by the Clerical party), he was not established in the chair untill 1870. In 1878 he was elected for the Academy. Renan is considered a scolar of the greatest excellence and an impressive writer

        Viage pintoresco por los Rios Paranà, Paraguay,S.Lorenzo,Cuyabà,y el Arino tributario del grande Amazonas.

      Libreria Parisiense-Dupray de la Mahérie., Parigi 1863 - In 8°, pp. XI-153, cm. 19X24. Brochure originale a stampa. Ritratto dell'autore all'antiporta + 7 tavole con ritratti e vedute oltre a 26 grandi vignette nel testo ed una carta geografica. Dorso abilmente riparato carta un po' brunita ma nell'insieme ottimo stato. Opera assai rara e importante che manca anche alle biblioteche. Bartolomeo Bossi nasce a Porto Maurizio, Imperia il 13 agosto del 1817, compiuti gli studi classici nel 1832 emigra in Uruguay con la famiglia dove presta servizio prima nella marina mercantile e in seguito in quella militare. Qui ha come compagno d'arme anche Giuseppe Garibaldi, al quale fa da testimone il 16 giugno 1842, a Montevideo, nella chiesa di S. Francesco, alle nozze con Anita. Nel 1843 il Bossi entra a far parte della Legione italiana che, al comando di Garibaldi e di Francesco Anzani, combatte contro il dittatore argentino G. M. Rosas. Nel 1850, viene nominato dalla Società geografica argentina comandante di una spedizione in California, annessa da poco agli Stati Uniti; ritornato in Argentina nel 1854, e divenuto molto amico del generale J. I. de Urquiza, presidente della Confederazione argentina, prende viva parte alla vita politica, specie nel 1856, durante la lotta tra il generale Urquiza e lo Stato di Buenos Aires, raggiungendo il grado di ammiraglio nella flotta della Repubblica. In seguito si dedica ai viaggi di esplorazione, alcuni dei quali compiuti per incarico del gabinetto imperiale brasiliano, che lo aveva nominato direttore della Compagnia diamantifera del Mato Grosso, affidandogli anche il compito di eseguire uno studio sulle possibilità di colonizzazione di quel vasto e poco noto territorio. Nel 1863 pubblica a Parigi la relazione della sua più importante spedizione nelle foreste brasiliane, descrivendo regioni ancora inesplorate, di cui fornisce le prime, esatte determinazioni di latitudine e longitudine. Nel marzo dello stesso anno si reca anche a Genova, dove viene accolto calorosamente, anche per l'opera svolta in Sudamerica in favore dell'Italia. Dopo aver soggiornato alcuni mesi in Italia, si imbarca per gli Stati Uniti d'America dove, a Jenu, in seguito all'incendio della sua nave America subisce un durissimo colpo, sia morale che finanziario. Tornato in Uruguay, nel gennaio del 1872 fonda a Montevideo il giornale Unità Italiana, di cui è anche direttore e dalle colonne del quale svolge opera di italianità tra i connazionali emigrati in Sudamerica. In seguito alla nomina a console dell'Uruguay a Valparaíso, in Cile, Bossi deve sospendere la pubblicazione del giornale, che arrivò fino al n. 177, e trasferirsi, alla fine dello stesso 1872, con tutta la famiglia, nella città cilena, ove si reca in parte via mare compiendo così il primo dei molti viaggi da lui compiuti attraverso lo stretto di Magellano e l'oceano Pacifico sin nella Terra del Fuoco e nei canali della Patagonia, durante i quali notò l'esistenza di correnti sottomarine, baie, canali e passaggi ignorati, contribuendo, con i suoi rilevamenti e i suoi studi, alla correzione e al miglioramento delle carte di navigazione delle terre australi dell'America del Sud. Nel 1879, nominato console generale dell'Ecuador a Montevideo, ritorna in quella città, ove attende alla pubblicazione dei resoconti dei suoi viaggi e all'organizzazione del Museo di storia naturale della capitale uruguaiana, che arricchisce anche con le sue importanti collezioni di fossili, minerali e animali. Il materiale più interessante era stato raccolto da Bossi durante i suoi viaggi al Mato Grosso, alla Terra del Fuoco e al deserto di Atacama, ove segnalò l'esistenza di notevoli giacimenti d'oro, argento, rame e nichel. Nel 1883 Bossi torna in Italia, stabilendosi a Genova e qui diviene, sotto lo pseudonimo di Oceanico, corrispondente del Corriere della Sera. Muore a Nizza il 31 dicembre 1890. A. M.

Zeitgenössische braune Leinenbände mit gedruckten, aufgeklebten Rückenschild. Henry John Stephen (1787-1864) valled to the Bar in 1815 but made little headway professionally. He became a member of the common law commission of 1828 and may have been offered a Judgeship. In 1834 he published in 1841 his New Commentaries on the Law of England, partly founded on BLACKSTONE but with extensive additions, and really an original work. Many other editions have been published by later editors, extensively altering the original work. Latterly he became a commissioner of bankruptcy at Bristol but never attained the professional position with his abilities merited. Versand D: 2,00 EUR 8.8.4.5. Laws of England and USA, London

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Wien, 28. XI. 1863. - 2 SS. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "für die gefällige Zusendung des Programms danke ich Ihnen verbindlichst, und bitte mich aus nachfolgenden Gründen gütigst zu entschuldigen, dass ich nicht zur gestrigen Besprechung gekommen bin. Das Programm ist zwar sehr gut verfasst, es wird aber, so lange das Künstlerhaus nicht fertig ist, keine allgemeine Künstlergesellschaft, wie sie in der lobenswerthesten Absicht projektiert ist, zu Stande kommen; sie wird sich übrigens leicht und wie von selbst bilden, wenn das Gebäude zu dieser Verbindung dastehen wird. Vorher aber - davon werden Sie sich überzeugen - wird es nicht gehen, am allerwenigsten mit den Trümmern des ‚Hesperus', der stets nur eine vereinzelte Gesellschaft vorstellt, an denen es ohnehin nicht gebraucht. Es wäre - so viel ich aus den persönlichen Verhältnissen der Collegen der verschiedensten Fächer entnehme - eine ganz vergebene Mühe, den Hesperus im gegenwärtigen Augenblicke auf einen Standpunkt heben zu wollen, wie ihn z. B. ‚die grüne Insel' einnimmt, welche die Dichter von Wien, die Hofschauspieler, bedeutende Musiker, Sänger und Maler bereits vereinigt und den Aufforderungen des collegialen Verkehrs vollkommen entspricht [ ] Für einen Verein, wie der Hesperus - mehr als eine vereinzelte Gesellschaft kann gegenwärtig nicht daraus werden - haben die Dichter und Künstler für jetzt kein Bedürfnis, daher [halte] ich jeden derartigen Versuch für vergeblich [ ]". - Als Theaterkritiker des "Bürgerblatts" und Herausgeber von Gedichtsammlungen wurde Kaltenbrunner bald zum Mittelpunkt des literarischen Lebens in Oberösterreich. 1842-67 arbeitete er in der k.k. Hof- und Staatsdruckerei in Wien, an der er seit 1859 als Vizedirektor wirkte. In Wien wandte er sich der Dialektdichtung zu und wurde einem breiten Publikum bekannt.

        Grimms' Goblins

      Catherine St, Strand, London.: The London Herald Office.. 1st Printing. Hardcover. Very Good/Not applicable. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Hablot Knight Browne (Pseud "Phiz"). Bound from the parts 25 weekly parts with 22 colour woodblock plates by "Phiz". and a colour title page. 98 tales on 398 pages + the 22 plates. The final leaf states "The End". Although the publishing details in the margin, printed along the length which can be seen, (just) on several of the parts state "To be completed in 30 numbers". I think the production was finished at the last issue here No25, perhaps due to funds or lack of interest? A small quarto size in original blue embossed and blind stamped diaper cloth, spine re-laid cleverly. New canary yellow endpapers. Contents VG with the odd slight brown mark, minor wear to edges. * The date of this has not been given. I have been informed by a reader of this site that the book dates to 1863/4. This is based on the publisher and their address in the Strand. There is a copy in the National Library of Scotland with "Phiz" illustrations, but NOT this publisher and NOT this issue in parts. I also have information that this has a variant title page without the publishers imprint within the imagery. It is COMPLETE as is and was issued at the time in this blue diaper cloth with gilt motif and titles, something the parts would NOT have had, nor would the publishers have had bolts of cloth waiting for buyers of the parts to ask for them to be then sent back for binding, after all the parts were only 1d. I think this may have been sold as is after the parts finished, but bound from parts. No other copy like this one located and no records of THIS particular issue in parts in ANY library listing on Copac. A curiosity and RARE item with the last tale having a Vampire and some of the tales seeming to be more "Arabian Nights" rather than the imagination of the Brothers Grimm and european in origin?

        The Geological Evidences of the Antiquity of Man.

      London: John Murray,, 1863. With remarks on theories of the origin of species by variation. Illustrated by Woodcuts., Octavo. Original green cloth, titles gilt to spine, fossil design gilt to front board, both boards panelled in blind, tan coated endpapers. Half title, woodcut frontispiece and one other plate, woodcut illustrations in the text. 32pp. publisher's advertisements at the rear, dated January 1863. Corners lightly bumped, some very minor rubbing, small library stamps and armorial bookplate of the Earl of Lovelace, front free endpaper split at hinge but holding, otherwise internally fresh, a smart copy in excellent condition. First edition in the original cloth, from the library of the Earl of Lovelace. Sir Charles Lyell (1797-1875), considered one of the foremost geologists of his day, is best known as the author of Principles of Geology (1830-3) which popularised James Hutton's concepts of uniformitarianism, and showed that the earth was older than the 6,000 years ascribed to it in the Bible. He was a close and influential friend of Charles Darwin, whose theories Lyell publicly supported and whose Origin of Species he remarks upon in this book. In the main this title concentrates on glaciers, evolution, and the age of the human race. This copy bears the library stamps and armorial bookplate of William King, 8th Baron King and Earl of Lovelace, who in 1835 married the mathematician Ada Lovelace, née Byron, the poet Lord Byron's only legitimate daughter. Ada's notes to her translation of General L. F. Menabra's Sketch of the Analytical Engine Invented by Charles Babbage contain what is regarded as one of the earliest computer programs. Through his marriage King acquired the title Earl of Lovelace in 1838, Ada becoming Countess of Lovelace. The Ben Damph Forrest library stamps derive from their sporting lodge in Scotland, which he built several decades after Ada's premature death in 1852.

        AMERICAN FRONTIER LIFE. "THE HUNTER'S STRATAGEM." [and:] AMERICAN FRONTIER LIFE. ON THE WAR-PATH

      New York, 1863. Some very pale mat burn. Near fine. Two of the scarcest Currier and Ives prints, both depicting dramatic scenes of frontier Indian fighting. At the time of the celebrated sale of the collection of Norman James at The Anderson Galleries in 1928, it was noted for each "only a few copies known." The artist of both prints was Arthur Tait, one of the best artists with whom Currier & Ives worked. "Perhaps our greatest sporting artist, Tait would earn a high place in any discussion of art of the period. Among the Currier & Ives group he ranks among the very finest" - Peters. Very rare, and among the most famous and reproduced of prints by the famous lithographers. PETERS, CURRIER & IVES 1512, 1513. GALE, CURRIER & IVES: CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ 171, 172.

        Broadside. Begins: Acta de pronunciamiento de Sensuntepeque. Vivan los derechos del Pueblo. — Muera la tiranía.

      San Salvador: Impr. del Gobierno Tall folio (35 cm; 13.75"). [1] p.. 1863 Editio princeps of the famous "Pronunciamiento de Sensuntepeque," the grass-roots denouncement of the liberal Barrios government. All but one family of the town banded together to draft and sign this document and to send manuscript copies throughout the country to foment a popular revolution and to support the Guatemalan invasion aimed at ousting Barrios. This is a 180-degree turn-around stance from that of 12 November 1859 when the town published a decree fully supporting Barrios. Pres. Carrera of Guatemala, a Conservative with ambitions to control all of Central America, did unseat Barrios and in October of 1863 installed Francisco Dueñas as president. The meeting at which this document was drafted occurred on 27 February 1863, months prior to the Guatemalan invasion, but this first printed version did not appear until after the fall of Barrios and the installation of the Conservative government. It is dated 11 November 1863. A postscript to the "Pronunciamiento" states "esta acta no se pudo dar a luz en su oportunidad por haber sido persequidos, encarcelados y confiscados los firmantes." The names of the signers are present (in type) above the postscript. => Searches of WorldCat, COPAC, CCILA, and Metabase locate no copies. Top margin crumpled and with a few tears and some small loss of paper, but not of text. One horizontal fold.

      Cairo [Illinois], September 29, 1863. 7.75" x 9.75". "Civil-war date Manuscript Letter Signed ""David D. Porter"" as Rear Admiral, 2 page, 7.75"" x 9.75"", front & verso with blank integral leaf bearing light offset from Porter;'s signature (letter folded before ink dried). To W.W. Carter Esq., Baltimore, Md. Mississippi Squadron, Flag Ship 'Black Hawk,"" Cairo [Illinois], September 29, 1863. Fine condition.In part, ""I have received your communication of August 20, containing the patriotic motto, which has deservedly elicited the beautiful remark from one of the most loyal gentlemen in this Union, Mr. Holt. Though I do not know him personally, I much admire him, and am satisfied that his appreciation of your motto is the best compliment that could be paid. ""There is no doubt left in my mind, but that 'the heel of the old flag-staff will bruise the rattlesnake's head', and cut off the Copperhead's tail, pluck out his fangs and render him harmless. Until our Country however, is united at home, and the Government receives the hearty support of every one who professes to be a Union man, we need never expect to crush the Rattlesnake's head. The part I have taken in this rebellion is dictated by but one feeling, a love of the Union under which this country enjoyed more blessings than any other country under the canopy of heaven - and I would hang every traitor who helped to pull down and dishonor our glorious old flag, and try to bring us to a level of the Mexican states…"" Kentucky-born Joseph Holt practiced law in Mississippi before the Civil War. He served as Buchanan's Postmaster General and as his last Secretary of War, January 18 - March 3, 1861. Anti-slavery and a supporter of the Union, in 1862, Holt was appointed Judge Advocate General of the Union Army.W.W. Carter's Patriotic Motto: ""THE HEEL OF THE OLD FLAG-STAFF SHALL BRUISE THE RATTLESNAKE'S HEAD!""mentioning the endorsement by Holt and Porter and thanks from President LincolnFrom The Rebellion Record: A Diary of American Events edited by Frank Moore (New York: D. Van Nostrand, 1868"" ): ""Document 96: THE HEEL OF THE OLD FLAG-STAFF SHALL BRUISE THE RATTLESNAKE'S HEAD! Across the front of the stand of the National Union Ratification Meeting, held in Baltimore in June, 1864, for the purpose of ratifying the nominations of the candidates for the Presidency and Vice-Presidency of the United States [Lincoln & Johnson], was displayed the above thoroughly national motto, conceived by Mr. W. W. Carter of that city, in March, 1862, and which he afterward had inscribed upon a handsome silken Union flag, which he presented to President Lincoln in the following August, accompanied by a letter requesting:""That the flag might be deposited in the War Department, in order that the motto might be incorporated into the national faith during the present struggle for the supremacy of the Constitution and the Laws, and the perpetuity of our nationality. The motto is national, symbolic, and prophetic. The Heel of the Old Flag-Staff represents the Federal Government; the Rattlesnake's Head represents the Rebellion inaugurated by South Carolina, the symbol of whose sovereignty is that vicious reptile; and the declaration of enmity between the heel and head is prophetic of the absolute power and inflexible determination of the Federal Government to crush out the Rebellion at any and every cost commensurate with the life of the nation.""Let the motto then be inscribed upon the flaunting banners of our advancing armies; let it be spread before the public eye, and thundered into the public ear at all the loyal gatherings of the people; let it stimulate the heart of the nation all over the land, and Anally, let it be the battle-cry for the Union until the flag of our country shall again be planted upon every mountain-top, and its musical flutterings again be borne upon every passing breeze. Yea I until 'O'er all the cities and forts once more, The Stars and Stripes we shall restore.'""""The sentiment, with its accompanying remarks, have been most heartily endorsed by a large number of the Governors of the loyal States, to whom they have been submitted, as - well as by Hon. Edward Everett, Hon. Daniel S. Dickinson, Hon. Joseph Holt, and Commodores Porter, Dahlgren, and others.""President Abraham Lincoln's letter to W.W. Carter: ""Executive Mansion, August 8, 1862. Allow me to thank you very cordially for the elegant and ingenious flag which you have had the kindness to send me, and for the earnest and patriotic letter by which is was accompanied.” "

        Recollections of Tartar Steppes and their Inhabitants.

      London: John Murray,, 1863. Octavo (182 x 115 mm). Contemporary half calf, decorative gilt spine, green morocco label, marbled paper sides, marbled edges. Wood-engraved frontispiece and 4 plates. Ownership inscription on front pastedown of "Miss Williams's, Wasperton House", Warwickshire; bookseller's stamp of Cooke & Son, Warwick, on front free endpaper. Binding lightly rubbed, a touch of foxing in places. An attractive copy. First edition, uncommon. Lucy Atkinson (1817-1893), traveller and writer, accompanied her husband, Thomas Witlam Atkinson, in Siberia, the Kirgiz steppes and eastwards as far as Irkutsk and the Chinese border. Her "vivid account, which is arranged as a series of letters to a friend, shows Lucy Atkinson to have been an indefatigable horsewoman who was held in respect by local people both for her equestrian skills and as a markswoman with pistol and rifle. Her reference to the birth of her son Alatau (named after a nearby mountain and spring), in the absence of a medical attendant, offers a further indication of her unusually independent capabilities. While of intrinsic interest, her book has recently been used to support criticisms of inauthenticity raised against her husband's second volume by revealing inaccuracies in the chronology and detail. In her descriptions of meetings with survivors of the 1825 Decembrist uprising then scattered through Siberia, including M. I. Murav'ev-Apostol, I. D. Yakushkin, P. I. Falenberg, the Volkonsky and Trubetskoy families, the Borisov brothers, and the Betsuzhevs (which her husband could not include owing to the dedication of his second volume to Tsar Alexander II), Lucy Atkinson's work is of interest and importance to historians of the period" (ODNB).

        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."
