        Des couleurs et de leurs applications aux Arts industriels à l'aide des cercles chromatiques

      1864 - de 26, (2) pages et 27 Paris, Jean-Baptiste Baillière et fils, 1864, in-folio, de 26, (2) pages et 27 planches, percaline rouge de l'éditeur, titre doré sur le plat supérieur et en long du dos, Première édition, rare. C'est sûrement la plus rare de toutes les publications d'Eugène Chevreul sur la couleur. Il y développe les résultats pratiques qu'il avait obtenus pour définir et dénommer les couleurs. On y rencontre aussi, exposée pour la première fois, la manière dont on peut obtenir à volonté, suivant un procédé bien déterminé, les dégradations successives de plusieurs couleurs qui ici ont été notées au crayon sur les planches des 13 gammes chromatiques : gris, violet rouge, rouge orangé, orange, orangé jaune, jaune, jaune vert, vert, vert bleu, bleu, bleu violet, violet et rouge. Outre les 13 planches des gammes chromatiques, Chevreul reprend dans ce traité les 14 planches en couleur de l'atlas qui accompagnait l'Exposé d'un moyen de définir et de nommer les couleurs (1861). Les 27 planches furent gravées par René Digeon et imprimées en couleurs par Lamoureux. Bon exemplaire, en dépit des quelques rousseurs habituelles, dans sa reliure d'origine.

        Memoirs of Jane Cameron, Female Convict

      London Hurst and Blackett 1864. Two Volumes. 8vo. 326pp. 301pp. + 6pp ads. Publisher's bottle green geometrically embossed cloth titled in gilt to spines. Fraying to spine ends, bumping and scuffing to extremities, strong, solid and bright, bearing their wear with ease and comfort. Glazed brown endpapers with some traces of a label removal to the pastedowns, pencil ownership to pastedowns of both volumes. Rear inner hinge of volume I starting very slightly. A very good set. Robinson's prison and lowlife fiction (he wrote four notable novels of female prison life under the pseudonym of Prison Matron) shared an intent with Arthur Morrison's later slum fiction to highlight and humanise the plight of marginalised members of Victorian society. Robinson's work has been creditted with lending a strong and sympathetic narrative voice to women in the Victorian prison system, which let's face it can't have been terribly pleasant. In addition some of the credit comes from actual women, which makes a nice change and suggests there might be something to it. Written in a style that suggests careful research and observation rather than the more usual melodramatic "fallen women" stylistic approach; there is a decidedly journalistic element to Robinson's fiction. A nice set, hard to find in collectable condition.

        The New Testament of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. With engravings on wood from designs of Fra Angelico, Pietro Perugino, Francesco Francia.

      London: Longman, Green, Longman, Roberts, & Green 4to (29.5 cm, 11.75"). Frontis., [iii]–xvi, 540 pp.; illus.. 1864 First edition, and one of 250 large paper copies printed of this lavishly illustrated, quintessentially Victorian Bible. The decorations and initials were drawn and engraved by Henry Shaw, who also supervised the engravings of the illustrations after Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, Raphael, and other Italian masters; engravers involved with the project included F. Anderson, James Cooper, Messrs. Dalziel, W.T. Green, William Linton, and many others, all of whom labored mightily in this attempt to reproduce the feel of a 16th-century production. Binding: Signed reddish-brown morocco binding by Root & Son, with covers and spine gilt extra; extremely wide and handsome turn-ins elaborately gilt tooled. Provenance: Front fly-leaf with attractively inked gift inscription to the Rev. John Francis O'Hern, the third Bishop of Rochester, NY, dated 1929. Leather showing small rubbed spots over edges and extremities, with faint leather discoloration to part of front cover; front pastedown with traces of a now-absent bookplate. The weight of this substantial volume has partially cracked the front joint; however, with careful use (and storage on the volume's back, not its lower edge), this damage should not quickly progress. A lavishly produced Victorian New Testament, in a still-impressive binding.

        RAIL ROAD BRIDGES & TUNNELS FROM INFORMATION [caption title]. Compiled by Capt. Wm. E. Merrill, U.S. Engrs. Chief Topl. Engr. Army of the Cumberland

      [N.p., but near Chattanooga]: Drawn on stone by G.A. Bauer 1st Lieut. T.E., 1864. Old fold lines, minor wear and soiling. Very good plus. A rare lithographed broadside listing detailed bridge information along railroad lines in Georgia and Tennessee, made under the direction of Capt. W.E. Merrill, Chief Topographical Engineer of the Army of the Cumberland. William Merrill (1837-1891) was a career officer who graduated first in his class at West Point. Following distinguished battle service during the Civil War, he was assigned in September 1863 to the Army of the Cumberland as Chief Engineer. With the capture of Chattanooga in November 1863, the Union finally found the foothold they needed to cut off supply lines and advance into the Deep South. In the spring of 1864 the forces under Gen. William T. Sherman were poised to strike. As soon as Chattanooga was taken, Merrill, "the most innovative and conscientious exponent of mapping during the Civil War," began to compile a map of northwest Georgia. Merrill had his own complete establishment for map production: a printing press, lithographic presses, and draftsmen. Equally important, Merrill's assistant Sgt. N. Finnegan developed an extraordinary body of intelligence, drawing on spies, prisoners, refugees, peddlers, itinerant preachers and scouts - what Merrill called "his motley crew." The information in the present broadside would have been used in conjunction with Merrill's important maps of the area. It represents a listing of all the key points along Sherman's essential railroad line of communication and supply, down which his army moved thousands of tons of supplies and thousands of soldiers. Without the line, his assault into Georgia would have been futile. Presented as a chart, the left side lists each stretch of railroad track, while across the top the information is divided into columns - over what river, height from the water, number of spurs, type of bridge, etc., with a final column for individual remarks. Information on eight different stretches of track is provided, spurring out from Chattanooga to Knoxville, all the way down to Dalton and Atlanta. The broadside was doubtless printed on Merrill's field press from information he compiled during the course of researching for his maps. A note at the bottom urges, "All officers discovering errors will please inform this office." Sherman occupied Atlanta on Sept. 2, 1864, and held the city until mid-November. Since Merrill's broadside describes the line all the way to Atlanta, it must date from this period. During this time the line was under constant pressure from Confederate guerilla activity, especially aimed at the bridges detailed on Merrill's chart. The Confederate forces looked forward to a winter of wearing Sherman down by attrition and seeking to choke him by cutting the line. Instead, Sherman did the utterly unexpected; he burned Atlanta, cut loose from his line of supply, and marched to the sea at Savannah, plundering Georgia as he went. Union forces under Gen. George thomas retreated back up Merrill's line, blowing up the bridges behind them, to Chattanoga. One of the most remarkable engineering feats of the war, memorialized by Merrill's broadside, was over. A rare survival of an ephemeral item printed in the field during the Civil War.

        3 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      London, 1864. Zus. 11 S., 8°. u. 4°. „By profession he was an architect, but subsequently devoted himself to journalism in Paris. He was one of the band of laymen who surrounded Frederick Ozanam and who founded with him the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. At Ozanam\'s suggestion he wrote some letters to The Tablet describing the aims and the work of the new Society. Frederick Lucas, editor of The Tablet, then wrote some articles on the same subject and in January, 1844, the English branch was formed, Wigley, who was by then living in London, becoming one of the original thirteen members. In or about 1860 Wigley took a leading part in forming both in England and in France the Peterspence Association for assisting the Pope. Shortly after, Pius IX bestowed on him the Cross of St. Gregory the Great. He met his death in attending one of the St. Vincent de Paul cases in Rome, a Protestant English sailor. Wigley nursed him, and had him received into the Catholic Church on his death-bed. Then falling ill himself, he went to the hospital of the Brothers of St. John of God, where he died on 20 January 1866“ (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius\' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr.

        Autograph Letter Signed, to Mrs. [William] Cowper [later Cowper-Temple].

      Winnington Hall, Northwich, Cheshire 12mo (20 x 12.5cm; 7.875" x 4.875:). 3 pp.. [ca. 12 December 1864] Ruskin lived semi-permanently at Winnington Hall in the 1860s: It was a school for girls and Ruskin taught various subjects including Bible, geology, art, and music. His correspondent was his intimate and confidante in the matter of his unfortunate and unrequited love for Rose La Touche. This letter to Mrs. Cowper (née Georgianna Tollemache) colorfully, vividly, and indulgently describes the energetic merrymaking of those girls who have not gone home for Christmas holiday. There are about 14 or 15 of them and on the wet day before that of the letter they played at noisy "hide & seek all day" in the enormous building: "The house has about three quarters of a mile of up and down corridors" and presently there are "seven or eight dozen empty rooms" because of the absent girls. As per our caption, he also writes in detail about teaching songs and dances to his charges. On a personal note, he will go and have dinner with the Cowpers on Monday, he promises. The text of the letter was published from the Cook and Wedderburn transcripts in the Bodleian Library (The Winnington Letters, ed. by Van Akin Burd, Cambridge, MA: Belknap Press of Harvard University, 1969; pp. 531–32). There are two small differences in the original that are not found in the printed version. Provenance: In the stock of Thomas H. Telford, an antiques and book dealer; sold in 1933 to Mrs. W.S. Bowen of Westfield, N.J. Written on Winnington embossed stationery. Not the easiest hand to read but clearer than not. Old folds, fore-edges a little crumpled, short fold tears. Overall very good.

        Jefferson Davis authorizes his aide to mount a daring raid on the Union P.O.W. camp at Point Lookout, Maryland to free and arm Confederate prisoners

      Richmond, July 4, 1864. 7.75" x 7.25". "A most cryptic and important Autograph Letter (unsigned), 1 page, 7.75"" x 7.25"", Richmond, July 4, 1864 to his aide-de-camp, Col. John T. Wood, authorizing him to undertake ""the distant service to which you have been assigned..."" Lightly toned at corners, else fine condition.Davis' letter reads in full: ""Sir, You will proceed to execute the orders and instructions otherwise communicated to you in connection with the distant service to which you have been assigned. You will use your discretion in the modification of your orders as circumstances may require and may our heavenly Father inspire you with wisdom and crown your efforts with success.""With the situation rapidly deteriorating on the Southern home front as Grant's army pushed relentlessly toward Richmond, Davis chose to undertake several risky operations to both boost Confederate morale and dampen the reelection prospects for President Lincoln that fall. One of the measures was a planned expedition to the Union prisoner of war camp established at Point Lookout, Maryland, located at the confluence of the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay. The plan, which was co-commanded by G.W. Custis Lee and John Taylor Wood, was to lead a detachment from Jubal Early's army, who were then advancing north into the Shenandoah Valley to make an attempt on Washington. Wood was to secure two steamers at Wilmington, North Carolina capable of capturing the Union gunboats guarding Point Lookout. Davis also ordered that Wood secure arms to distribute to the freed prisoners so they could join in Early's planned attack on Washington. However by July 10, it had become obvious to Davis that the plan had been compromised and instead ordered that he take command of the converted blockade runner, Atlanta, re-christened as the C.S.S. Tallahassee, to raid Union shipping along the eastern seaboard. Wood commenced his cruise on August 4, 1864. By the time he reached Halifax, he had captured thirty-three Union vessels. John Taylor Wood (1830-1904) , the son of Union General Robert Wood and Anne Taylor, the daughter of President Zachary Taylor, graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1852. Initially maintaining a neutral stance following the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860, his sympathies headed South after the Battle of Fort Sumter. On April 21, 1861, he resigned his commission in the U.S. Navy and retired to his Maryland farm. The farming life did not last long, however, as life was becoming too dangerous. Fearing for the safety of his family, the Woods moved south to Richmond, Virginias where his uncle, Jefferson Davis, was now presiding over the Confederate capital (Jefferson Davis' first wife, Sarah Taylor, was Wood's mother's sister).In October 1861, Taylor received a commission as a lieutenant in the Confederate States Navy and became an officer aboard the C.S.S. Virginia (the former U.S.S. Merrimack) and fought against he U.S.S. Monitor at the Battle of Hampton Roads. Wood commanded the rear pivot gun and fired the shot that wounded the Monitor's captain. Appointed an aide-de-camp to President Jefferson Davis, Wood was awarded the rank and pay of a colonel of cavalry, giving him simultaneous commands in both the Confederate Army and Navy allowing him to serve as an effective liaison between the services and the government in Richmond. In that capacity, Wood undertook an extensive survey of Confederate costal defenses. During the summer of 1863, he led a series of successful raids against Union shipping in Chesapeake Bay. In the summer of 1864, Wood commanded the C.S.S. Tallahassee, a raider and blockade runner. During his tenure aboard the Tallahassee, he captured an astounding 33 Union ships during a ten-day period off the coast of New England. By April 1865, the situation looked grim for the Confederacy. Wood was with his uncle on April 2, attending St. Paul's Church in Richmond, when a telegram from Lee arrived informing the president that Petersburg would soon fall and the government must evacuate. That evening, he, Davis, and other members of the Confederate government boarded a train for Danville, Virginia. They continued their flight south, where, on May 10, 1865, near the town of Irwinsville, Georgia, Davis and Wood were both captured by Union forces. Wood soon made his escape, with his uncle's permission, by bribing one of his captors and hiding in a nearby swamp until the Federals and their prisoners left the area. Wood made his way south to Florida and met up with Major General John C. Breckinridge. Acquiring a small boat, Wood, Breckinridge, and several other men first attempted to row east to The Bahamas, but abandoned the plan and decided to instead make their way south toward Cuba. He managed to trade with a crew of Union deserters his boat for their slightly bigger sloop. They reached the north shore of Cuban on June 10. He remained in Cuba for two weeks before heading north to Canada, where his family soon joined him. Reunited, they settled in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and remained there for the rest of their lives. John Taylor Wood died on July 19, 1904. "

Tirada dos seus escriptos acompanhada de notas e peças justificativas e offerecida á mesma academia pelo Marquez de Rezende seu sócio nacional correspondente. Typographia da Academia. MDCCC LXIV [1864]. De 27x21 cm. Com 201-(i) pags. Encadernação recente ao gosto da época com lombada e cantos em pele. Obra apresenta o retrato e todas as estampas muito raras, as quais constam na última folha inumerada, mencionadas no aviso à colocação das estampas, sendo as mesmas referidas por Inocêncio (VIII, 314 e IX, 323): «Para a biographia do erudito prelado e laboriosissimo escriptor possuimos hoje os mais amplos e veridicos esclarecimentos na Memoria historica tirada de seus escriptos, e acompanhada de notas e peças justificativas pelo sr. Marquez de Resende, impressa pela Academia das Sciencias em 1864. Entre essas peças justificativas avulta um bom numero de cartas de correspondencia, tanto official como particular, e outras propriamente litterarias, que todas deveriam achar logar (com as muitas que ainda andam espalhadas, e de que eu mesmo conservo algumas autographas) na collecção das obras do Cardeal, se a publicação d"estas viesse a completar-se; do que parece não resta já esperança, nem probabilidade, decorridos como são para mais de quinze annos, depois que a edição do tomo I, feita em 1855 e promptamente exhausta, deixou até hoje os leitores na mallograda expectativa dos volumes seguintes. Na referida Memoria vem de pag. 164 a 168 uma noticia de obras, que o sr. conselheiro Antonio Marques Correa Caldeira, depois da rebusca que deu, accrescentou ao indice que publicara n"aquelle tomo I das producções de seu illustre tio. Deve-se porém á verdade a declaração de que entre essas obras que se dizem rebuscadas e accrescentadas, figuram não poucas impressas, e já por mim em 1859 dadas em supplemento ao indice alludido. Se n"isso póde haver algum merito, não é justo que eu seja d"elle privado. Como a Memoria é vulgar, e se acha ao alcance de todos, parece-me superfluo reproduzir para aqui os accrescentamentos, no que diz respeito a manuscriptos"."Memoria historica de D. Fr. Francisco de S.

Os exemplares postos á venda por s. ex.ª são ornados de estampas descriptivas e de um retrato, o que tudo mandou tirar á sua custa, tendo a delicadeza de offerecer desses exemplares aos academicos que estiveram presentes nas diversas sessões em que fez leitura daquelle seu trabalho».

        Rare Lincoln 1864 Presidential Campaign Newspaper

      Reading, PA 1864 - Newspaper. Father Abraham. Reading, PA: October 4, 1864. Vol 1, No 10. 4 pp., 17 3/4 x 11 3/4 in. The 1864 election was one of the most important in American history. When some of his advisors suggested postponing or cancelling the vote because of the war, Lincoln responded: "We can not have free government without elections; and if the rebellion could force us to forego, or postpone a national election it might fairly claim to have already conquered and ruined us." However, Lincoln's reelection was an uphill struggle. No president had won a second term since Andrew Jackson in 1832, and Lincoln faced a challenge from his former general George McClellan, running as a Democrat on a peace platform, and John C. Frémont, who's campaign was off to a strong start. Lincoln's defeat would have surely led to a negotiated settlement with the Confederacy, dividing the union and giving slavery increased resonance in the South. Fortunately for Lincoln, William T. Sherman took Atlanta on September 2, 1864, showing that Northern victory was ahead. Frémont withdrew three weeks later, reasoning that Northern winning the war was more important than splitting the Republican vote. The masthead reads "Liberty and Union-One and Inseparable-Now and Forever." Reporting news from Lincoln's and a number of other campaigns of the National Union Ticket, the moniker adopted by the Republican Party for the 1864 election. Though it was founded in 1864 to promote Lincoln's re-election, Father Abraham continued publication until 1873.ConditionA few small chips to top edge, minor tear to third column of p. 3, old folding creases. Contemporary ownership signature "G.D. Hunsecker" on p. 1.

        IN THE DISTRICT COURT, FIRST JUDICIAL DISTRICT, STOREY COUNTY, NEVADA TERRITORY. GOULD & CURRY SILVER MINING Co., PLAINTIFF, vs. NORTH POTOSI GOLD AND SILVER MINING CO. DEFENDANT. OPINION OF REFEREE, AUGUST 22, 1864

      Virginia, N.T.: Goodman & M'Carty, Printers, 1864. Original printed wrappers. Vertical fold. Wrappers and upper margin of several leaves with some smoke damage, not affecting text. Good. A scarce, early, and significant Nevada imprint, giving referee John Nugent's decision in this important mining case. Plaintiff Gould & Curry Silver Mining Company brought an "action of trespass" suit against the North Potosi Gold and Silver Mining Company, arguing that the North Potosi claim, adjacent to its own, was actually a spur of the plaintiff's established vein. After a protracted and costly legal battle, the courts appointed Nugent to review the case and prepare an impartial recommendation. His report on the geological characteristics of the Comstock Lode, and subsequent conclusion in favor of the plaintiff, formed the basis for the court's final decision in favor of Gould & Curry. Because of the importance of the case, Nugent's report was printed almost immediately in San Francisco and Virginia City newspapers prior to this first pamphlet publication. Streeter notes that it was "a case of such importance in its day that each side argued, quite improperly as pointed out by the referee, that an adverse decision 'would be seriously detrimental to if not destructive of the prosperity of the District.'"

        THE KANSAS ANNUAL REGISTER FOR THE YEAR 1864. PUBLISHED BY THE STATE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY

      Leavenworth: Printed at the Bulletin Job Printing Establishment, 1864. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, gilt leather labels. Boards quite rubbed and worn, front board nearly detached. Very clean and fresh internally; with the map in excellent condition, save for a two-inch closed tear in the gutter. In a calf-backed clamshell case, spine gilt. A wonderful 19th-century digest of Kansas history and statistics, with a very rare and detailed map of Kansas which was apparently not issued with all copies. The text describes Kansas government offices, land surveys in Kansas, topography, school system, churches, military posts, etc. There is an account of Quantrill's raid on Aug. 21, 1863, as well as a brief descriptive section on each county and a table of agricultural products. The portraits are of important Kansas figures: Thomas Carney, Thomas Ewing, James G. Blunt, James H. Lane, George W. Deitzler, and A.C. Wilder. Though the title implies later annual publications, this is the only one issued. Andrew Stark, the editor, was the publisher of the TOPEKA TRIBUNE. The large folding map of Kansas, compiled by D.T. Mitchell and actually printed in Pittsburgh, is usually missing. It is entitled "Kansas Annual Register's New Map of Kansas and the Gold Mines Embracing All the Public Surveys Up to 1864." The primary map is quite detailed, showing all of the eastern half of the present state of Kansas. A large inset, occupying the bottom section of the map, shows the routes to the Colorado gold mines, indicating the trails across Kansas and the eastern section of Colorado. Mitchell worked with the cartographer, O.B. Gunn, who had prepared maps of Kansas as early as 1856, in creating this map. Not in Howes or in the Graff or Streeter collections. The combination of the map's having been printed in Pittsburgh and the book's publication in Kansas during the Civil War makes this is a very rare item. AII (KANSAS) 422. SABIN 37051.

        Haggadah Shel Pesah

      1864 - (HAGGADAH). Seder Ha-Haggadah Shel Pesah Im Tziyurim. Hugah B’iyun Nimratz Me’et Abraham Hai Morpurgo. Trieste: Jonah Cohen, 1864. Folio (9-1/2 by 12-1/2 inches), 20th-century half vellum; pp. [1], 42, [1]. $5200.Beautifully and richly illustrated Haggadah printed in Trieste, with elaborately engraved Gothic title page depicting Moses, Aaron, David and Solomon, and with 58 splendid wood engravings by C. Kirchmayr (almost one on every page).“The Trieste Haggadah is undoubtedly the most distinguished illustrated edition produced in Europe during the 19th century. As the engraved title page already indicates, the Haggadah is different in format and design from any that preceded it, no mean achievement in an age when the Venetian and Amsterdam Haggadah illustrations were being copied and recopied in seemingly endless succession. Almost every page contains a large engraving above the text, drawn by C. Kirchmayr. Though inspired by the iconographic themes of the past, the Trieste engravings are not a mere aping of the stereotypes then current, but display a welcome freshness of design… A scene showing the family around the Seder table had been a standard feature of almost all illustrated Haggadahs. As certain influential Haggadahs began to be copied later, the representation of the Seder became increasingly anachronistic… [However,] in the Trieste Haggadah the artist has clearly set out to present a middle-class Italian Jewish family of his own time. Not only are the men and women dressed in the current style, but each of them exhibits an individuality rarely encountered before” (Yerushalmi 102-105). The ultimate leaf contains the musical notes for Adir Hu, Adir Bimlukha, and Ehad Mi Yodeyah. Yaari 898. Yudlov 1216. Pencil and ink annotations in several hands.Occasional light staining characteristic of ceremonial use; minor paper repairs. An extremely good copy, attractively bound.
