Esta edición constituye pues un tierno homenaje y reivindicación histórica de las penas sufridas por el autor. Reza el prefacio, firmado por Rivadeneyra como El Editor: El texto de esta edición se ha impreso en Argamasilla de Alba, en la misma casa donde, según es fama, estuvo preso Miguel de Cervantes. Con este motivo se llevó allá un material completp de imprenta. El local no es el más a propósito para sacar una impresión exenta de defectos; parte del día se ha trabajado con luz artificial: se ha hecho lo que se ha podido. Se dió principio á la edición el 23 de Octubre de 1862, según consta por acta del mismo día, ante los dignos individuos de aquel ayuntamiento [.]. Se concluyó la tirada del último pliego el día 8 de Febrero de 1863. Se han impreso 2.000 ejemplares, y se han ocupado los operarios siguientes [.].

Apparently edited by George M. Stroud
[Philadelphia], 1863. 1st Edition. Wraps. Very good. Complete, 32 pages plus the illustrated wrapper. Cover and title page both feature the famous illustration of "Whipped Peter" Gordon, an escaped slave who enlisted in the Union Army. Sound binding. The reverse of the title page contains a preface by Stroud dated "Philadelphia, Sept. 15, 1863." Clean with minor edge-wear. This pamphlet contains short passages from pro-slavery, anti-abolition speeches given by George Washington Woodward (the leader of the Democratic Party in Michigan) and John Henry Hopkins (the Episcopalian Bishop of Vermont) interspersed with long excerpts from Fanny Kemble's journal describing the horrors of slavery based on her experience living on a Georgia plantation. The document was used to attack Judge Woodward, who at the time was the Democratic candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania. Stoud was a ardent abolishionist judge from Philadelphia, who authored Southern Slavery and the Christian Religion and a famous analysis of slave laws, A Sketch of the Laws Relationg to Slavery. Frances "Fanny" Kemble was a well-known British actress who had married Philadelphian Pierce Butler, the heir to tobacco, rice, and cotton plantations near Darien, Georgia, and the hundreds of slaves that worked them. Although Butler made regular visits to his plantations, Kemble did not accompany him until in 1838 after several years of marriage. Although she personally found blacks to be stupid, lazy, filthy and ugly, when she saw slavery up close, she was appalled.by their living and working conditions as well as the mixed … [Click Below for Full Description]

Willson, Hugh Bowlby
London, 1863. b/w folding plates. xi, 63 pp. Willson, a Canadian polymath, was sufficiently ahead of his time as to sound like a crackpot. He proposes “to do away with the sails, masts, and rigging, and thereby to dispense with sailors - in fact to regard a ship of war as a vast floating military engine, capable of being rapidly moved to any point required, at a velocity hitherto unknown.” In fact, what he has in mind are souped-up ironclads. He acknowledges Scott-Russell's wave-line theory and adds his own ideas about the importance of reducing surface friction. His design concepts are illustrated in five folding plates. Though he sounds like an engineer he was actually a journalist with a particular interest in economics. According to the Dictionary of Canadian Biography, “The quality of Willson's writings on money and banking was excellent.” An interesting oddball item. VG in original cloth binding.

Orig. cloth-backed flexible marbled boards. Spine partially abraded, boards lightly rubbed, light scattered foxing and toning, very old waterstain to final leaves, else very good. P&W 1984. Doctors in Gray, p.218. Norman 1433. Not to be confused with another Confederate surgery manual of the same title by John Julian Chisolm. On front free endpaper, "Presented by S. P. Moore, Surgeon Genl C.S.A., March 8th 1864." Samuel Preston Moore (1813-1889) was a military physician who served in the medical corps of the U.S. Army during the Mexican-American War and later served as the Confederate Surgeon General through nearly all of the Civil War. Moore had befriended Jefferson Davis during the Mexican-American War, impressing the future president of the Confederacy with his abilities. Moore resigned his commission in the U.S. Army in February 1861 and returned to his practice in Little Rock, Arkansas. On 16 March, he was appointed Surgeon General and remained in that post until the end of the war. He dealt with shortages in medicines, supplies and equipment, as well as a shortage of trained surgeons. He installed an examination system to identify untrained doctors, which allowed them to receive further training and proficiency. The 30 plates illustrate procedures for the amputation of hands, feet, arms, and legs, and the treatment of various battlefield wounds caused by sword … [Click Below for Full Description]

Geneva: Imprimerie Jules-Guillaume Fick, 1862. 267 x 173 mm. 19th century half cloth, marbled boards, almost invisibly rebacked, light edgewear; boxed. Internally very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed by the author to Sven Erik Sköldberg (1806-84) on a slightly trimmed leaf bound before the half-title: “Monsieur le Docteur Sven Erik Skoeld[berg]/Conseiller au Collčge de Médecine de Stockho[lm]/Intendant de matériel medical de l’Armée/Suédoise &c. &c. &c./Souvenir de la Conférence Internatio[nale]/de Genčve/Hommage respectueux/de l’Auteur/J. Henry Dunant/Genčve le 29 Octobre 1863.” First Edition of the work that led to the foundation of the International Red Cross, inscribed by the author to one of the future organizers of the Swedish Red Cross. Dunant’s ten-line presentation inscription, which fills the entire page, compares favorably to his three-line presentation in the copy cited in the Grolier Club’s One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine. According to En français dans le texte, 1,600 copies of Un souvenir de Solferino were printed in November 1862 for private distribution. Of these only 400 were actually sent out; these copies, constituting the original issue, have a title-page stating “Ne se vend pas” over the imprint. The positive reception of the few copies sent out encouraged Dunant to publish a second edition of 1,000 copies just one month later.

San Francisco: Towne & Bacon, 1863. [4],102,[2],115pp. plus frontispiece map (here in two copies). Original printed wrappers. Spine perished, with some repair along inner portion of front wrapper. 19th-century library association bookplate on front free endpaper. Neat repairs along foredge of maps. Else good. In a half morocco box. The scarce first edition of Dwinelle's essential California work, especially desirable in the original printed wrappers, as here. This copy bears an inscription on the front wrapper: "Joseph Bell Esq. Albany, N.Y. with the compliments of G.W. Bell, Supt. 8 Dist. San Francisco." G.W. Bell was a well-regarded assayer and Wells Fargo agent in San Francisco, and the first president of San Francisco's Olympic Club. The wrappers betray the origins of Dwinelle's work as a legal brief for the case of "The City of San Francisco vs. The United States," with John W. Dwinelle being the counsel for the claimant. This extensive brief is also a historical account of the city of San Francisco, and confirmed the city's claim to four leagues of "Pueblo Lands," as defined by the Land Commission Act. Dwinelle's history is a great storehouse of information on the beginnings of San Francisco, with printings of a large number of documents which are now either inaccessible or destroyed. The map of "The Peninsula of San Francisco" is present here in two copies. The Streeter copy of the first edition, also in original printed wrappers and with a presentation inscription from Dwinelle to John Hittell, brought $300. HOWES D614, "b." ZAMORANO 80, 32.

Waring, J. B.
London: Day & Son, 1863. First edition. Hardcover. Very good condition. Complete in three folio volumes, magnificently produced with 301 chromolithographed full page plates of Victorian works of art from around the world, including the Supplemental Plate 300A. Chromolithograph plates include goldsmithed pieces, silver, clocks, furniture, porcelain, glass, sculpture, iron work, fire arms, and lace. These volumes were published to commemorate the Exposition of 1862 held in South Kensington, London. It was an unprecedented fair, with more exhibitors from more countries than had ever previously been attempted. Easily exceeding the Paris Exhibition of 1855, some 29,000 exhibitors representing 37 countries took part, resulting in an enormous number of exhibits which would have been even higher had the United States been able to participate, which it could not, due to the Civil War. There were the latest inventions of the Industrial Revolution, including the electric telegraph, submarine cables, the first plastic, machine tools, precision instruments, cotton mills, maritime engines and ice produced by an early refrigerator. There were the decorative goods, including fabrics, rugs, sculptures, furniture, plates, porcelain, silver and glass wares, and wallpaper, including works by William Morris. Many of the participating exhibitors came from the British Colonies, including Australia. The Jurors Reports favorably compared Australian exhibits in 1862 to prior efforts: "In 1851 the Australasian colonies were but poorly represented, although a few made some efforts to put in an ap … [Click Below for Full Description]

Henry D. Thoreau
Ticknor and Fields,, Boston, 1863. Very good+ in the publisher's original dark green "sawtooth" cloth covered boards with copper colored text and decorations and text on the spine, blind embossed borders with a blind stamped wreath on both boards and brown coated end papers. A 12mo of 7 by 4 1/2 inches with the cloth at the head and heel of the spine worn in small spots. An early prior owner's name on the verso of the first free end page. As is typically seen the frontispiece portrait of Thoreau shows light spots of foxing which has bled through the facing tissue guard to the title page. The contents are otherwise predominantly free of foxing and tanning. 319 pages of text the first 29 pages of which is a biographical sketch of Thoreau written by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson. The first edition of this title consisted of only 1,500 bound copies of 1,558 printed. It was the first of his books to carry an image (an engraved frontispiece) of the author.
