        Passages from the Life of a Philosopher.

      London: Longman Green Longman Roberts & Green 1864 - First edition. 8vo. xii, 496, 24 pp. Publisher's green cloth, gilt lettered to the spine, early gift inscription from one Henry Filliter to a Charles Willcox on the half title along with a later ownership inscription dated 1908, the subsequent bookplate of Walter Ambrose Harding of Madingly to the front pastedown. Frontispiece featuring Babbage's Difference Engine no. 1. Neatly rebacked preserving the original spine. Babbage in his preface wrote: "This volume does not aspire to the name of an autobiography". Showing obvious pride in his pioneering work he wished to put on record the "remarkable circumstances" surrounding the creation of his Difference Engines, though the author worried whether this would be too dry to appeal to a wide audience and thus he wrote this "rambling, colourful, anecdotal" account of his life and times (ODNB). As with much of Babbage's posthumous fame, the book's primary interest rests on the description of his calculating engines, here described in chapters V-VII (Difference Engines Nos. 1 & 2) and chapter VIII ("Of the Analytical Engine").

        The Orders that Began the Battle of Mobile Bay: Admiral Farragut's Signal Orders Sent by Lt. John C. Kinney

      Washington, D.C. 1864 - Manuscript Document. Orders signaled by Lt. John Kinney for Farragut aboard the U.S.S. Hartford at Mobile, Alabama, August 5, 1864. [Washington, D.C.]. 2 separate pp., 5 1/4 x 8 1/4 in. Docketed by Gideon Welles. Sent the morning of Battle of Mobile Bay, these orders were relayed via signal flag from Farragut's flagship, the U.S.S. Hartford, to the captains of the U.S.S. Brooklyn, Lackawanna, and Winnebago. The correspondence records Farragut's orders moving his fleet past the forts at the entrance of Mobile Bay. They give a blow-by-blow of the opening salvo along with the loss of the Union ironclad Tecumseh. Complete Transcript From the Brooklyn/ The Monitors are right ahead. We cannot go ahead without passing them./ Capt Alden / 7.25.a.m.Capt of Brooklyn/ Tell the monitors to go ahead and then take your station./ By Order of Admiral Farragut:/ 7.30To Admiral Farragut./ Our best Monitor is sunk/ 7.35 / Capt. Alden.Capt of Brooklyn/ Go ahead / Admiral F./ 7.35Capt of Lackawana/ Get ready & run down the ram/ Admiral F. / 8.30. (over) To Ram Winnebago/ Run down the Ram/ Admiral F.To Winnebago & Lackawana/ Send your boats to the ram & save the menTo Capt of Lackawana/ For God's sake keep out of the way & anchor/ Admiral F.in different hand:(T.H. Stevens) On page four, penned by Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles: "Signals / Farragut & Alden / at Mobile. / Kinni sig. officer."Historical BackgroundAdmiral David Farragut's strategy for engaging the much smaller Confederate naval forces at Mobile Bay, Alabama, relied on moving his fleet safely past the guns of Forts Morgan, Gaines, and Powell at the harbor entrance. To do so, he rafted his wooden warships together in pairs, hopeful that if one were damaged, the other would provide propulsion for both. He also ordered the four ironclads, the Tecumseh, Manhattan, Chickasaw, and Winnebago, to place themselves between the guns of Fort Morgan to shield the wooden-hulled ships.When the battle began at 6:47 on the morning of August 5, 1864, the Tecumseh, in the lead, fired the first shot at the forts and general action began. As planned, The Tecumseh engaged the Confederate ironclad Tennessee, but then steamed through the minefield she had been ordered to avoid. The vessel struck a torpedo (underwater mine) and sank within minutes. Only 21 of 114 crew were rescued. Captain James Alden, with conflicting orders to stay to the port of the ironclads and to the right of the minefield, stopped, evidently sending his first signal (above) at 7:25 a.m. informing Farragut that he could not pass. As seen in the sequence of orders given, Farragut orders the ironclads forward and the Brooklyn ahead as well, and goes on to order the Lackawanna and Winnebago to "run down the ram" the C.S.S. Tennessee.The legendary story at this point in the battle was that Alden stopped the Brooklyn because he had seen the havoc wreaked on the Tecumseh by the underwater mines. Farragut, aboard the Hartford, then uttered his famous declaration "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" and passed the Brooklyn, taking the Hartford past the forts. While not impossible, as Alden, blocked by the ironclads on one side and the minefield on the other, didn't want to steam through the mines, these orders suggest that Farragut ordered both the ironclads and the Brooklyn forward. Still, there would have been no recorded signal order given, since he was ordering the vessel upon which he was standing to full speed head.David G. Farragut (1801-1870) joined the navy as a midshipman at the age of 9. He served in the War of 1812, and then in the West Indies working to eradicate piracy. He moved from Virginia to New York at the outset of the Civil War and went on to serve on the blockading fleet in the Gulf of Mexico. He rose to become the first rear admiral, first vice admiral, and first admiral in the U.S. Navy. (To that point, the navy had avoided what it considered a European aristocratic rank for.

        The Revelations of a Private Detective. [Bound with :] The Streets of London founded upon Dion Boucicault's Popular Drama now performing at the Princess's Theatre

      London: Ward and Lock, 158 Fleet Street; David Bryce, 44, Paternoster ROw, 1863; n.d. [1864] - Forrester's Revelations of a Private Detective was originally issued in yellow-backed pictorial boards (Sadleir illustrates the front cover); an early and popular work, the title was re-issued in 1868. The Streets of London is an anonymous prose novelization of a popular play, which playwright, actor, and theatrical entrepreneur Dion Boucicault opened at the Princess's Theatre on 1 August 1864. "It was his part in the collaborative composition of The Poor of New York, which opened at Wallack's to ecstatic notices on 8 December 1857, that alerted Boucicault, not only to the capital to be made out of vividly staged sensation scenes in melodrama, but also to the marketability of contemporary events" (ODNB). Back in England in 1863 and facing bankruptcy, Boucicault adapted his New York play to draw large audiences in Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester, and finally London First editions. 12mo. 320; [iii]-vi, 342 pp. Contemporary half purple calf and marbled boards, edges marbled. Spine toned, some rubbing. Very good. First title: Sadleir 3529, Hubin p. 153; Second title: not in BL; only 1 copy in OCLC (UCLA) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed.

      Starnberg, 25. VI. 1864. - Large 8vo. 5 pp. on 3 ff. Includes autogr. envelope with embossed sender's monogram and initials on verso. Long, important letter to Josephine Maier, mother of Wagner's close friend Mathilde Maier. As a matter of form, Wagner's oft-quoted request that Mathilde move in with him as his companion is directed to her mother: "My dear and esteemed friend! Only to someone whom I already owe so much love and true dedication as I do to you may I dare submit a question and indeed a request as I must today. I must now decide how to go about keeping my home tolerable in such a fashion that the fine external security now achieved also serves my inner prosperity. As you know, I live in separation from my wife: my desire to transfer my household to a female being has recently become so strong in me once more that I seriously considered whether it might not be better to call back my wife rather than live alone. Only the conviction, gained from long experience and confirmed by the observations of all my friends and relations, that a reunion must needs bring about for the both of us a condition much less bearable than separation, has utterly disabused me of this plan [.]" (transl.). - While this remarkable letter is addressed to Josephine Maier, Wagner sent it directly to Mathilde Maier, who read it without passing it on to her mother. She rejected Wagner's offer, but remained his friend for the rest of his life. Published in M. Dürrer (ed.), Richard Wagner. Sämtliche Briefe, vol. 16. Briefe des Jahres 1864, Wiesbaden/Leipzig/Paris 2006, no. 204, p. 245ff., commentary p. 599 with references to earlier editions. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Architectural Designs for Model Country Residences

      1864. RIDDELL, John. Architectural Designs for Model Country Residences. Accompanied by general descriptions and estimates. Prepared expressly for persons who contemplate building, and artisans throughout the United States. [14] ff. Illustrated with 20 full-page colour lithograph plates (illustrating 22 country houses) each accompanied by a full-page plan. Oblong folio, 370 x 445 mm, bound in original brown cloth. Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, 1864. |~||~||~||~||~| Rare American architectural work, illustrated with chromolithographs which must be seen to be fully appreciated. "The successful architect John Riddell is best remembered for his Architectural Designs for Model Country Residences, a book written to encourage prospective clients that -- ironically -- remains his chief monument. Illustrated with twenty lithographs in full colour, Architectural Designs is one of the handsomest American books of architecture published in the nineteenth century. Most of the designs are in the Italianate style, all are drawn to a large scale of one quarter of an inch to a foot, and colored in suitable tints, which adds much to the appearance of the rural residence" (Roger Moss, Philadelphia Architects and Buildings). The twenty chromolithographs depict front elevations for villas, cottages, and mansions, each with a black and white floor plan, along with letterpress descriptions and building instructions (including price estimates for the completed building). Riddell's designs reflect primarily Italian and Gothic styles, with hints of Greek Revival. The homes depicted by Riddell advocated the use of cast ironwork on porches (for columns) and other decoration, and frequently employed towers and belvederes in his Italian Villa and Italianate plans. Included in the volume is a list of his clients and locations of many of the buildings he had designed in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. A curious feature of the lithographs may be seen in the curtains: in each window there are two different colours of curtains. The lithography was executed in Philadelphia by T. Sinclair. The work first appeared in 1861; the sheets were reissued in 1864 (as here) and 1867. Fine copies such as this one are scarce: the only two copies that have sold at auction since 1978 were in horrible condition. Spine worn but sound, some minor foxing on a few pages, but not detracting from the overall aesthetic of the book. Hitchcock 1004. Not in Bennett or McGrath.

        Incorporating ?Genl Custer? in the address, General George Armstrong Custer writes to his wife from the battlefield

      Envelope addressed by Custer to his wife incorporating his signature ?Mrs Genl Custer / 339 Penn Avenue / Washington D C,? 5? x 3?. 3¢ George Washington postage stamp in upper right postmarked Washington, D.C. Postal marking ?Due 6? in pencil. Neatly cut opened at left edge. Fine condition. General Custer addressed this envelope on the battlefield, possibly during the Battle of the Wilderness, May 5-7, 1864, the first battle of Union Lieutenant General U.S. Grant's Virginia Overland Campaign against Confederate General Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia, fought about 60 miles southwest of Washington, D.C. The letter would be sent by courier, ostensibly with other soldiers' mail, to the Washington, D.C., post office to be postmarked and delivered. Elizabeth Bacon and George A.

        Views of Jerusalem.

      Palästina, 1864-1865.. Präsentationsalbum mit 44 (1 gefalt.) mont. Fotografien von James MacDonald, 1 Fotografie von Peter Bergheim und 1 weiteren Portraitfotografie. 47 Bll. Prächtiger roter Lederband der Zeit mit reicher Vergoldung, Vorderdeckel mit goldgepr. Titel und Wappen des englischen Königshauses, Spiegel mit Lederbezug und umlaufender Vergoldung, fliegende Vorsätze mit Moireseidenbezug. Folio (308 x 389 mm).. Unikales Album mit bedeutenden und frühen Fotografien aus Jerusalem. James MacDonald (1822-85) war Hauptfotograf der offiziellen Landvermessung Palästinas in den Jahren 1864-65. In dieser Zeit entstanden die qualitätvollen Fotografien, die nicht zur Verteilung in der Öffentlichkeit bestimmt waren: Vielmehr bildete der Bildbestand den Grundstock des Palestine Exploration Fund (PEF), einer britischen Organisation, die, angeregt durch die eben erwähnte erfolgreiche Landvermessung, eigens begründet wurde, um sich bis heute der Vermessung und wissenschaftlichen Erforschung des Heiligen Landes zu widmen. - Die hervorragenden Abzüge sind mit Titel und der gedruckten Signatur MacDonalds versehen. Gezeigt werden die klassischen Orte Jerusalems. Die Formate variieren zwischen ca. 27 x 20 cm bis 17 x 22 cm sowie einem Panorama der Stadt aus 2 Fotos zusammengesetzt ("General view of the city from the mount of olives", Gesamtgröße 22 x 51,5 cm). Ein weiteres, ungezähltes Panorama mit Signatur MacDonalds nur hälftig vorhanden. Ein einziges Foto mit der Signatur "P[eter] Bergheim" ist in der gleichen Art wie die Arbeiten Macdonalds gehalten und zeigt die Klagemauer ("Wailing Place of the Jews"). - Die vorliegende Zusammenstellung wurde auf Veranlassung des Landvermessungsamtes besorgt. Zu Beginn eine handschriftliche Widmung in englischer und arabischer Sprache (datiert Southampton, 23. III. 1866) von Colonel Sir Henry James, dem Direktor des "Topographical Department of England", mit der er den Fotoband seiner Exzellenz Izzet Pasha (1864-67), dem Gouverneur von Jerusalem, widmet. - Hinterer Spiegel mit Feuchtigkeitsrand. Das Montagepapier hin und wieder etwas fleckig, bei der Panoramaansicht etwas feuchtigkeitsfleckig, das Panorama nur minimal betroffen. - Witkin/London, Photograph collector's guide 363.

        A Lecture on the Sources of the Nile and on the Means Requisite for their Final Determination. Delivered in the Theatre of the London Institution, on Wednesday, January 20th, 1864; [With] A Mounted Photograph (8,5x6 cm) of Mr. & Mrs. Beke, ca. 1870, London (Ernest Edwards); With Six Pages of Loose Descriptive Text.

      Board of Management of the London Institution, London 1864 - London: Board of Management of the London Institution, 1864. First Edition. Octavo. 35 pp. With three maps, one outline hand colored. Recent gray wrappers. A fine copy. Very Rare publication as only three copies found in Worldcat. Published after Speke's 'Discovery of the Sources of the Nile.' In this lecture to the London Institution, Beke took issue with Speke's claim that he had discovered the source of the Nile. Beke's counter claims were based on Beke's knowledge gained during his previous journeys to the region. "Beke spent the years 1840 to 1843 travelling in Abyssinia, spending most of his time in the provinces of Shoa and Gojam. His governing concerns were to advance commerce; aid the suppression of the slave trade; and make further geographical discovery, with the elucidation of the sources of the Nile River as his goal., In the 1860s Beke's lifelong passions again brought him into the public eye. He continued, by lecture and articles, and his Sources of the Nile (1860), to debate the geography of the Nile basin" (Oxford DNB). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
