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.

He died in England in July, 1863, whilst completing the manuscript for this book. The publisher's Preface observes that Vigne was neither a professional author nor a commissioned tourist.

Schlegel, H.
Leiden, E. J. Brill; Amsterdam, G. L. Funke [1863-1866]. 4to (30.0 x 22.5 cm). 38, [i], 79 [iii], 68 [ii] pp., with 50 hand-coloured, lithographed plates, with most illustrations heightened with gum arabic. Publisher's green, decorated cloth. Spine with gilt title; embossed boards; front board with black printed ornamental borders and gilt title. Brown endpapers.= Rare and beautifully illustrated book on the birds of Indonesia, formerly the Dutch East Indies, especially of Java. It includes the descriptions and illustrations of several new and poorly known species. In 1863, the publisher envisioned a publication with about 200 plates and 800 images of birds, to be completed in about four years' time. This was never achieved. The published work consists of three parts - each with a separate index - namely 1. Pitta; Monographie ; 2. Valkvogels (Accipiter); and 3. IJsvogels/ Martins-Pêcheurs). Contrary to the description in Landwehr (pp. 178-179) the falcon-text and falcon plates are placed before the kingfishers. Slight rubbing to board extremities, some scattered, usually very light spotting. In all a very well-preserved copy with bright colouring, Rare, especially in its attractive original binding.

[HAMEL DISASTER]
circa 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 se … [Click Below for Full Description]

Eliot George
London Smith, Elder and Co. 1863. 3 volumes. First edition. 8vo, in the original green textured cloth, quite rare to be found such, the boards paneled in blind, the spines gilt lettered and decorated. Housed in a single morocco backed slipcase within individual cloth-covered chemises, the morocco backed box decorated as a book with gilt tooled raised bands and gilt lettering. iv, 336; iv, 333, [2]; iv, 292 pp. A copy in original cloth and state, very rare as such, the text uncommonly fresh with only the most minor of occasional light spotting or mellowing, the cloth sturdy and dark green, a little expected rubbing and very minor edge wear, the gilt a bit dull, a few hinges with some cosmetic separation to the endpapers, the volumes still strong and tight. VERY RARE IN ORIGINAL CLOTH AND IN SUCH ORIGINAL STATE. WE KNOW OF NO OTHER ACCEPTABLE COPY CURRENTLY ON THE MARKET IN THE ORIGINAL CLOTH. A truly outstanding copy, very desirable, this is an exceptional survival. Eliot's historical novel ROMOLA can be seen as a deep study of life in the city of Florence as the fictional events all take place amidst actual historical events during the Italian Renaissance, and includes in its plot several notable figures from Florentine history. Literary scholars have drawn comparisons between the setting of the novel and George Eliot's contemporary Victorian England and the psychological and religious introspection seen in Eliot's other novels is also seen in Romola.

LINCOLN, Abraham (1809-1865); and Edward EVERETT (1794-1865)
New York: Baker & Godwin, 1863. 8vo. (9 x 5 5/8 inches). 48pp. Publisher's lettered wrappers, publisher's ad on rear wrapper. Housed in a blue morocco box. "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. Lincoln made his speech at the dedication of a cemetery on the Gettysburg battlefield some four months after the bloody and 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

John A Dix
privately printed at the Riverside Press, 1863. Small 8vo, pp. 15; English and Latin on opposite pages; with the second reading in the first line: "Day of vengeance" instead of the original, "Day of weeping." Bound with: Jacobus de Benedictis's Sabat Mater. Cambridge: privately printed [presumably at the Riverside Press], pp. 11; English and Latin on opposite pages. Presentation copy to "Miss Folsom, with the kind regards of John A. Dix, Paris, 8 Jan. 1869." The first title is extra-illustrated with 3 albumen prints of Christian art, and the second title extra-illustrated with 7 albumen prints of the same; on a separate leaf bound in at the end is a manuscript index to the photographs in the hand of Dix, listing the title of the photograph and the page number where inserted; bound in full crushed brown morocco by L. Curmer, red silk moiré endpapers, inner dentelles, a.e.g., etc. and with a blindstamped crucifix on the covers; red moiré-lined chemise, recent brown cloth slipcase with morocco label. John Adams Dix (1798-1879) was Secretary-of-State of New York, served as a U.S. Senator from New York, and as Secretary of Treasury under Lincoln, who commissioned him a Major-General in the U.S. Army; he served also as Minister to France from 1866-69, and in 1872 was elected Governor of New York. The book is apparently unique. The photographs are almost certainly by Dix himself, a known photographer. The Miss Folsom in the presentation is possibly Helen S. Folsom, the sister [?] of George Folsom, a New York author and antiquarian who served in local politics.

FLAUBERT Gustave
- Michel Lévy, Paris 1863, 15x23cm, relié. - - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition originale sur papier courant. Reliure en demi chagrin sapin, dos à cinq nerfs, plats de papier marbré, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, ex-libris encollé sur une garde, reliure de l'époque. Quelques légères rousseurs sans gravité. Rare envoi autographe signé de Gustave Flaubert à (Louis) de Carné, journaliste et historien dont Flaubert possédait plusieurs ouvrages référencés dans l'inventaire de sa bibliothèque. L'intérêt que portait Flaubert à l'œuvre de Carné n'était toutefois pas toujours bienveillant. On retrouve en effet des notes critiques sur ses articles dans les dossiers de Bouvard et Pécuchet. D'autre part, la parution de Salammbô coïncide avec l'élection controversée de Louis de Carné à l'Académie Française, qualifiée de coup d'état clérical par une partie de l'opinion publique. Elle était en effet le résultat de la fronde organisée par Mgr Dupanloup contre l'autre candidat, Emile Littré, auteur d'une définition matérialiste de l'homme qui déchaîna la fureur des partis religieux et Orléanistes. Flaubert évoque le scandale de cette élection dans une lettre aux Goncourt du 6 mai 1863 : « Avez-vous suffisamment vitupéré Sainte-Beuve et engueulé l'Académie à propos de la nomination Carné ? » Bien qu'il précède sans doute légèrement cette élection, cet envoi de Flaubert à Carné est un curieux hommage d'un écrivain accusé naguère « d'offense à la morale publique et à la religion » à un futur représentant du pouvoir religieux au sein même de la prestigieuse Académie. Précieux exemp … [Click Below for Full Description]

Henry Walter Bates
London 1863: THE NATURALIST ON THE RIVER AMAZONS was according to Charles Darwin " the best book on Natural History ever published in England." Henry Walter Bates set off with Alfred Russell Wallace to explore the Amazon Basin. He collected over 14,000 species, of which 8,000 were new to science. When Bates returned to England, he was persuaded to write an account of his 11 year expedition. I have the FIRST EDITION (2 vol) for sale. The Naturalist on the River Amazons, a Record of Adventures, Habits of Animals, Sketches of Brazillian and Indian Life, 2vol., John Murray, 1863. One folding map (short tears repaired at for-margin ), without the advertisements in volume one, bookplate of G. Bickerton Evans, later white endpapers in volume one, publisher's pictoral cloth gilt, rebacked preserving original spines. The missing adverts are pages containing" Mr Murray's General List Of Works." First few pages and last few pages of both volumes have some foxing including page edges to both volumes. Some other pages do contain foxing, but the majority of pages are generally good to very good. I recently sold the 1895 and 1910 editions and my feedback was:- fantastic service and item, thank you. Due to the value of the books, I am only going to accept bids from buyers with a feedback of 20+ transactions.

the General Assembly of Florida Books
The Acts and Resolutions Adopted by the General Assembly of Florida 1863-1865 Up for sale is a fantastic set of early Florida law books. This 4 book set includes 1863 - 1865. It is incredibly rare to find a sequential set of these early books for sale. These books cover the southern state of Floridas confederate years during the Civil War. The 1862 edition is 79 pages long plus the Index, 1863 is 60 pages plus Index, 1864 is 46 pages plus index, and 1865 is 146plus the Index to the Acts and Resolutions and the Index to the Constitution. Some acts include: An Act to authorize the removal of slaves and other property from the State An Act to suspend the collection of Taxes in counties held or controlled by the Enemy An Act to regulate Trade and Intercourse with the Indians An Act to aid the Confederate Government in the detection of Frauds An Act to provide clothing for troops from Florida in the service of the Confederate States An Act to create special tribunals for the trial of Capital Offences committed by Slaves, Free Negroes, and Mulattoes Article XVI Whereas, slavery has been destroyed in this State by the Government of the United States... These books are in nice condition. The only damage that I see is a small tear on page 75 of the 1862 edition, the first page of the 1865 edition which is pictured. These books have a contemporary library binding and a few rubber stamps. [Attributes: First Edition]

Jan. 20, 1863]. 8 pp., plus printed wraps, 2¼ x 3¼ in.This miniature Emancipation Proclamation of January 1, 1863 was distributed in the North and issued to soldiers in the field. As evidence of slavery's central role in the war and Confederacy, a quote from the Confederate Vice President is printed on the front wrapper: "Slavery the Chief Corner-Stone. / 'This stone (slavery), which was rejected by the first builders, is become the chief stone of the corner in our new edifice.' - Speech of Alex.

First edition hardcover, "A Chronological History of the Civil War in America (and Hand Atlas of the Slave States)" by Richard Swainson Fisher, M.D. Published in 1863 by Johnson & Ward publishers, no dust jacket. Has minor scuffing on the spine, and some yellowing/stains on some pages (pictured). On the front cover is the inscription "Thus For the Union". Some discoloration on the cover. Hand atlas is of The Virginia Campaign, and is somewhat fragile. Had already been removed and folded in the back when I purchased the book. One corner has been torn but no lettering has been destroyed (also pictured). Overall the book is still in good condition. Measures approximately 9" x 6". Selling AS IS, and I'm open to reasonable offers as a different copy of this book is for sale on Biblio for $1250. But I don't know the condition of that particular copy. Might be better than this one. *Buyer pays insurance.* This book deserves to be in the hands of an avid Civil War enthusiast/collector! [Attributes: First Edition]

MONTALEMBERT, Marc-René de.
Encyclopaedia Brittanica, Marc-René, marquis de Montalembert (online); Jähns, p. 1863; Jordan 2561; Sloos, Warfare 08168. First edition of a very extensive work on fortification, by the French military engineer Marc-René, marquis de Montalembert (1714-1800). "Viewing fortresses as nothing more than immense permanent batteries designed to pour overwhelming fire on attacking armies, Montalembert simplified the intricate geometric designs of Vauban and relied on simple polygonal structures, often with detached peripheral forts instead of projecting bastions. The fortifications at Anklam, Stralsund, Aix-en-Provence, and Île d'Oléron were among his most prominent creations." (Encyclopaedia Brittanica). The first volume is devoted to the origins and progress of fortification, the others to the usefulness, construction, attack, defence and other aspects of fortresses. A fifth volume with 17 folding plates, added in 1784, is not included in the present set, which was probably issued before it appeared.With several library- and deaccession stamps. Occasionally some minor foxing and some marginal (water) stains. Some plates slightly browned and a few with frayed edges. Overall in very good condition and with wide margins. Bindings somewhat rubbed, some tiny wormholes, but still firm and good. [Attributes: First Edition]

[Burton, Richard Francis] Published: London; Tinsley Brothers, 1863 Binding: Hardcover Condition: Very good (please see full item description for details) Description: Two volumes in the rarest binding state (without Burton's name or FRGS on the spines), but with a "second edition" slug on the title pages. This state was apparently unknown to Penzer and was probably the result of an attempt to boost sales by the publisher, as the text is unchanged. 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. Small bookplate of F.H. Spencer on each front pastedown. Much to his dismay, Burton's first consular posting landed him on a small, desolate island off the coast of West Africa. He took every opportunity to leave the place, exploring various parts of the mainland and making observations on cultural and traditions, health and sanitary conditions, and slavery, among other things. The account of his journeys into Sierra Leone and Nigeria to investigate stories of gold and gold mining is credited with drawing public attention to mining prospects in the region.
