"Phil" May (Philip William May, 1864-1903), Five original drawings, c. 1893-1897 Phil May was an English caricaturist who, with his vigorous economy of line, played an important role in moving away from Victorian styles of illustration towards the creation of the modern humorous cartoon. His other original works can be found in the British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, National Portrait Gallery and the leading galleries of the USA, Canada and Australia. Widely regarded as the forefather of the modern satirical cartoon, Phil May has become a highly collectible and sought after artist. He spent time in Australia, New York and of course, London where his work appeared in Punch, St Stephen's Review and The Graphic, giving him celebrity status and launching his own annuals. These unique original sketches perfectly demonstrate the mastery of line and judicious number of strokes for which he has become legendary. Two are inscribed with evidence of publication: 'Cheek!' Phil May's Illustrated Winter Annual, 1900-1901, p.72 and 'Poker' Phil May's "Graphic" Pictures, p.4 The drawings are in remarkable condition for their age with only minimal signs of foxing, as seen in the photographs.

Stanton and contains a request from J.M. Francis of Hudson County, New Jersey that Edward Z. Laurence be appointed Secretary of Subsistence in the Volunteer Army of the United States. The request is approved and endorsed at the conclusion by Lincoln, "Let the appointment be made, if his service can be made useful A. Lincoln Aug. 17 1864. " In very good condition with a bold inscription from Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. He led the United States through its Civil War, and in doing so preserved the Union of the United States of America, abolished slavery, and strengthened the federal government. Lincoln began constructing his cabinet on election night and sought to create a cabinet that would unite the Republican party. His eventual cabinet would include his primary rivals for the Republican nomination and although his appointees held differing views on economic issues all were opposed to the expansion of slavery into the territories of the United States. The most senior cabinet post of Secretary of State was appointed to William Seward who had recently failed to win the 1860 Republican presidential nomination and Lincoln's choice for Secretary of the Treasury was Ohio Senator Salmon P. Chase, Seward's primary political rival and the leader of a radical faction of the Republican party that sought the i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Original cream cloth, with gilt-stamped spine, title and front cover decoration of a M'Ganda warrior saluting, dark green endpapers; pp. xviii, 452, [2, Appendix B and advertisment on verso], [30, advertisments], folding map in rear pocket with the route from Zanzibar to the Mediterranean in red; covers somewhat darkened, as ususal, the large folding map a little toned and spotted, internally, apart from very few and light spots, a very good copy. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed on half-title, together with a loosely inserted ALS by Grant. Rare account of travel across eastern equatorial Africa, by James Augustus Grant (1827-1892). Grant joined the explorer John Hanning Speke on his second journey to discover the source of the Nile in 1860. Unfortunately for Grant, he fell ill shortly after commencing the journey, which led to the explorers separating and leading quite individual escapades. Grant intended his book to work as a supplement to the journals of Speke, though it stands on its own merit, particularly due to the prolific amount of anthropological information. In his own words, it contains 'the ordinary life and pursuits, the habits and feelings of the natives'. He was presented with the Patron's Medal of the Royal Geographical Society in 1864, one of two highest accolades the organization awards. In addition, Grant was a keen natural historian, and made several botanical observations that would eventually make their way into Botany of the Speke and Grant Expedition in vol. xxix. of the Transactions … [Click Below for Full Description]

Extremely scarce, complete collection of d'Erco's works on the cultivation of oysters, and fish fertilising and farming. Riccardo d'Erco's work is an early description of oysters and their farming. Published in three, richly illustrated volumes, it summarises his extensive research on the subject, describing the various methods and equipment used around Europe and the United States. The first book comprises two parts. In its first part, d'Erco presents the fishing of oysters in Dalmatia, Trieste and the Venetian coast. The second part is his translation of Tiberius Cornelis Winkler's (1822-1897) scarce, 1861 publication Over de oester fokkerij [.] (Leyden, 1861.) that gives insight to oyster breeding in France, Denmark as well as in the United States. The second book, entirely dedicated to the cultivation of green oysters, is a translation from Jacques Marie Cyprien Victor Coste's (1807-1873) work, Voyage d'exploration sur le littoral de la France et de l'Italie (Paris, 1861). The third book, which consists of three parts, begins with d'Erco's account on the observations of his 1863 study trip to France and Belgium, commissioned by Friedrich Moritz von Burger (1804-1873). Subsequently, it includes the translation of two brochures by Dr Eugène Kemmerer (181 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charles Dickens
1864. For sale is a unique and bibliographically important genuine letter, handwritten and signed by Charles Dickens. Previously unrecorded, it does not appear in the collected letters of Dickens. The letter is written upon his trademark headed Gads Hill Place notepaper, in his typical blue ink. Dated for January, 1864, it is a reply to a Samuel Giles, informing that he is happy for him to use his name, in whichever way he sees fit. Samuel Giles was the brother of Dickens' schoolmaster, Reverend William Giles. This beautiful and important association is indeed most pleasing. Giles had approached Dickens regarding the use of his name, for school advertising purposes; a request to which Dickens agreed. We shall provide a COA, to the purchaser, which will be written and signed, on our headed notepaper. Overall, this unique correspondence comes highly recommended, and it will grace any collection.

Rebound with the original publisher's purple cloth boards, decorated liberally in gilt to upper and blind to lower. Recent purple morocco spine with raised bands and gilt titles. All edges gilt. An ex-library copy with stamps to title page. Some repairs to margins of plates XI, XVII, XXI, XXVIII, XLIV and LV. No tissue guards for plates XII and XIII. Heavy chipping to edges of plate XXIX. Significant losses and repairs to margins of plate XLV. Light occasional spotting to plates generally, with some small occasional chips to plate margins and tissue guards.

Pullan edited the work form Texier's journals, at his request, and included accounts of his own work. This collaboration reflects journeys made at widely differing periods. Texier was in Asia Minor from 1833 to 1837, while Pullan was sent to Halicarnassus (Bodrum) in 1857 to survey the Mausoleum. C.T. Newton then sent him on to Cnidus and Kos, and in 1862 he began excavations at Teos on behalf of the Society of Dilettanti. He had visited most of the Byzan … [Click Below for Full Description]

1864. De l'homme antédiluvien et de ses oeuvres, par Boucher de Pertes. Deuxième édition, Paris, chez Jung-Treuttel et chez Derache 1864 Un volume in-8° de: [2]ff+103pp+2 planches. Rousseurs, reliure demi chagrin rouge, dos à 5 nerfs muet. Couverture conservée. Mention manuscrite signée indiquant: "Brochure très rare aujourd'hui, aussi lui ai-je fait donner une reliure soignée". Le nom de l'auteur est frappé à l'or en haut du premier plat. Plats et gardes marbrées, long signet de soie tricolore. Deuxième édition de ce texte fondateur de la science préhistorique, dû à Jacques Boucher de Perthes (1788-1868), prononcé lors de la séance du 7 juin 1860 dela Société impériale d'émulation. Elle est illustrée de deux planches représentant des outils :"Emmanchement probable des haches et autres outils de silex antédiluviens" et d'une coupe géologique : "Coupe réduite du terrain de Menchecourt près Abbeville" lithographiées dans le texte. Avec sa théorie de l'existence d'un homme antédiluvien, l'auteur s'attira les foudres de la communauté scientifique. Il faudra attendre 1866 et les découvertes d'Henry Testot Ferry pour que les scientifiques commencent à se rendre compte de l'importance de l'oeuvre de Boucher de Perthes, malheureusement très peu de temps avant son décès. Rare sur le marché. J'accorde de l'importance à la précision de ma description, toutefois si vous avez la moindre question n'hésitez pas à me contacter.

[Cuba]. [Slavery]
Santiago de Cuba, 1864. Very good.. [4]pp., on two disbound folio leaves. Stab holes at gutter margins of leaves, light wear at edges. Light tanning and foxing. A fascinating set of manuscript regulations that dictated procedures for holding and documenting slave auctions the Deposito General de Esclavos in Santiago de Cuba during the mid-1860s. The first leaf lists eight regulations, which stipulate that the auctioneer must be qualified and registered as such, and that he must keep a log for the day of the auction, in which the names of slaves, owners, sellers, and purchasers must be recorded. The record of the auction must be deposited with the economic board that oversees the house. Moreover, it is also emphasized that the auctioneer does not have any rights regarding discounts or compensation. The second leaf contains legal affirmations, signed by relevant parties, that the rules have been confirmed, delivered, and accepted. The two documents are dated September 26, 1864, and are agreed to be valid and in force for two years, beginning on January 5th, 1865. Very interesting documentation of the bureaucracy of Cuban slave sales in the mid-19th century.

John Wisden
Hi, This is a Wisden from the Adrian Ellis Collection. 1864 : Paperback with facsimile Spine and Covers - 1st Edition! This Wisden was first listed as a rebind, it was from the Auty collection and hence we thought it was a valid listing with the Auty boards, however the binding wasputting pressure on the frist 2 pages and they were starting to tear down the line of the binding which was 1cm into the book and hence we took the book out of the binding and added facimile covers and a spine and touched up the small tear that was appearing. We have kept the Auty page if needed. The covers and spine are very well made and internally the book is nice and clean, there is some rounding to the pages and the last page has a small loss to the top of it as can be seen in the pictures. A small tear was forming thanks to the binding to the first 2 pages, this has been repaired. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
