        Reise der österreichischen Fregatte Novara um die Erde in den Jahren 1857, 1858, 1859 unter den Befehlen des Commodore B. von Wüllerstorf-Urbair. Geologischer Theil, 2 Bände (in jeweils 2 Abtheilungen, gebunden in 3 Bänden).

      Wien, Kaiserlich-Königliche Hof- und Staatsdruckerei, 1864 - 1866.. Original-Broschuren im Format 31 x 24 cm im zugehörigen Schuber. Tafeln überwiegend auf verstärkten (pappigen) Seiten. Geologischer Teil der Berichtsserie über die von der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien initiierten Forschungs-Weltreise der österreichischen Fregatte Novara unter dem Kommando des Kommodore Bernhard von Wüllerstorf-Urbair, der von namhaften wissenschaftlern wie unter anderem dem Geologen Ferdinand von Hochstetter und dem Zoologen Georg von Frauenfeld begleitet wurde. Es handelte sich um die erste Weltumsegelung eines deutschsprachig geführten Schiffes. Ausgiebige geologische Untersuchungen, insbesondere auf der Sankt-Paul-Insel, den Nikobaren und auf Neuseeland schufen wesentliche Grundlagen für die künftige geologische Erforschung dieser Weltregion. Insbesondere die durch Hochstetter vorgenommenen Kartierungen und Lagerstättenuntersuchungen in Neuseeland schufen Voraussetungen für die spätere durch, der bis zum Oktober 1859 in Neuseeland blieb, gaben den Startpunkt für die spätere genauere geologische Erforschung dieses Landes. Die während der Expedition vorgenommenen meereskundlichen Untersuchungen, insbesondere im südlichen Pazifik, erbrachten zukunftsweisende Forschungsergebnisse auf den Gebieten der Ozeanographie und Hydrographie. Neben einer dreibändigen allgemeinen Reisebeschreibung wurden die wissenschaftlich-fachlichen Ergebnisse der Reise in mehreren großformatigen, reich illustrierten Fachbänden präsentiert, die allerdings nur in wenigen Exemplaren erschienen und heute sehr selten sind. Der hier vorliegenden "Geologische Theil" teilt sich in zwei Bände mit jeweils zwei Abteilungen: Erster Band (2 Abteilungen in 2 Bänden): Erste Abtheilung: Geologie von Neu-Seeland. Von Dr. Ferdinand von Hochstetter. XLVI, 274 S. sowie Kartenanhang. Enthalten sind 6 teilweise mehrfach gefaltete geologische Karten in Farbendruck, 4 Lithographien, eine Kupferstich-Tafel, zwei Chromolithographien sowie 66 Holzschnitt-Illustrationen im Text.

Mit XXVI lithographierten Tafeln (auf Pappe) im Anhang. Zweiter Band (2 Abteilungen in einem Band): Erste Abtheilung: Geologische Betrachtungen. XIV, 162 S Mit 5 teils farbigen, teils ausfaltbaren Tafeln (darunter eine Chromolithographie) und 33 Holzschnitten. Zweite Abtheilung: Paläontologische Mittheilungen. S. 163 - 268. Mit VIII lithographierten Tafeln im Anhang.. Umschlagseiten leicht angestaubt, Rückenpapier partiell etwas berieben bzw. rissig. Schuber etwas geklebt.

        By-Laws of The New Red Lion Association for the Detecting of Thieves and Recovery of Stolen Property [with] New Red Lion Vigilance Association: District List [Broadside]

      West Chester: Republican and Democrat Printer, 1864, and n.d. [ca. 1850-71]. West Chester: Republican and Democrat Printer, 1864, and n.d. [ca. 1850-71]. First edition. Contemporary mottled wrappers. Broadside very good+ with a few folds, some minor marginal foxing and edge wear; by-laws near fine with a small spot to title page. 8vo.; 12" x 9 1/2" broadside. Illustrated letterpress broadside with engraving. Incorporated in 1864, the New Red Lion Association for the Detecting of Thieves and Recovery of Stolen Property was part of a growing wave of vigilance associations formed for the purpose of catching horse thieves, in case through a network established outside of the Philadelphia area covering eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland (see Greenberg, Citizens Defending America, Univ. of Pittsburgh, 2005, pp. 40-72). Radiating out from Red Lion, were a string of towns in which pairs of members were located to alert the populace, to distributed information and reward posters, and in some cases to pursue the thieves as can be seen in the illustration at the top of the broadside. The District list includes: Philadelphia, Norristown, Reading, Penn Hill, Lancaster, Brick Meeting, Wilmington, Old Chester, Middletown, and Baltimore. Members names are provided across from each town on the broadside and at the conclusion of the By-laws. Quite scarce. We could find none at auction or in old sales records. [Reuben S.] Gilbert was a wood engraver and book illustrator active in Pennsylvania in the mid-19th century. We could locate no other copies in auction records. OCLC lists only one copy of each item, both at the Hagley Museum, which dates the broadside between 1830 and 1850 (OCLC: 164394529 & OCLC 80814505).

        Autograph letter signed to Archibald Smith

      London, 1864. London, 1864. <p>Galton, Francis (1822-1911). Autograph letter signed to Archibald Smith (1813-72). 4pp. London, November 11, 1864. 179 x 113 mm. Light oil-stain in lower margins, but very good otherwise. </p><p>From Galton to Scottish lawyer and mathematician Archibald Smith, best known for his work on magnetism and the Earth&#146;s magnetic field, particularly in relation to navigation. Galton was (among many other things) a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society; he devoted the whole of his letter to Smith to geographical subjects, beginning with a discussion of the measurement of the Dead Sea&#146;s elevation: </p><p>"Sir H. James is really in error in believing that the elevation of the Dead Sea has never been determined by actual levelling. In 1843 Lieut. Symonds R.E. received the gold medal of the Geographical Society for having triangulated & levelled between the Mediterranean and Dead Sea. He did his work very carefully. You will see an account of it in Vols. 12 & 13 of the Geograph. Society&#146;s transactions, in the first in the President&#146;s address & in the second in the President&#146;s speech, when he gave the gold medal. I had thought, but I believe now I was wrong, that it had also been levelled in more recent years, but I see that Lynch only used barometers & I suppose (from you not having referred to him) that Van der Welde did the same." </p><p>Galton here refers to the measurement of the level of the Dead Sea by Lieutenant John F. A. Symonds (d. 1852), the leader of the Royal Engineers&#146; survey of Palestine undertaken in 1841. As Galton notes, this achievement earned Symonds the Royal Geographical Society&#146;s gold medal in 1843. Galton also mentions the measurement made by William F. Lynch (1801-65), leader of the U.S. Navy&#146;s 1848 expedition to Jordan and the Dead Sea. &#147;Van der Welde&#148; refers to Dutch cartographer Carel W. M. Van de Velde (1818-98), who published a map of Palestine in 1858; Van de Velde did not do any surveying, however, and his Dead Sea measurements were taken from Symonds. &#147;Sir H. James&#148; is Sir Henry James (1803-77), who served as the director-general of the British government&#146;s Ordnance Survey from 1854 to 1875. </p><p>Galton next brings up the question of whether Smith would &#147;press the pendulum matter&#148; before the Geographical Society: </p><p>"If you do not think it well to press the pendulum matter, pure & simple, there remains nothing else for our Society to take up but if you do care to press it I will move at our meeting of council on Monday that a committee should be formed consisting say of Everest Waugh Spottiswoode & one or two others, to examine the question & report to the ensuing meeting. They would then communicate with you, Sabine & the Astronomer Royal, & no time would be lost. I know Everest to be very keen about pendulum experiments being now established in many places, & I think he would greatly assist. . . ." </p><p>Galton here is referring to the Royal Society&#146;s proposal, supported by Smith, that pendulum measurements of the Dead Sea elevation be made as part of the Ordnance Survey&#146;s survey of Jerusalem, then in progress. The Jerusalem survey at first lacked both the money and the trained personnel necessary to perform these measurements, but Smith&#146;s advocacy of the project evidently paid off: The Royal Society and the Royal Geographical Society each contributed £100 towards the cost of the pendulum work and the Ordnance Survey team was able to make accurate measurements of the difference between the levels of the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea (see Wilson, Ordnance Survey of Jerusalem). &#147;Everest&#148; is Sir George Everest (1790-1866), Surveyor-General of India from 1830 to 1843 and the namesake of Mount Everest; &#147;Waugh&#148; is Sir Andrew Scott Waugh (1810-78), who succeeded Everest as Surveyor-General of India and who was responsible for naming Mount Everest after his predecessor; &#147;Spottiswoode&#148; is mathematician and physicist William Spottiswoode (1825-83), who served on the council of the Royal Geographical Society from 1862 to 1864. Spottiswoode was the author of On Typical Mountain Ranges: An Application of the Calculus of Probabilities to Physical Geography (1861), a work that Galton credited with inspiring him to apply statistics in the social sciences. &#147;Sabine&#148; is Edward Sabine (1788-1883), head of the British Government&#146;s magnetic survey of the Earth, who in the 1820s had used pendulum observations made in various latitudes to come up with the most accurate assessment of the Earth&#146;s shape and size that had yet been made. The Astronomer Royal, also mentioned in Galton&#146;s letter, was George Biddell Airy (1801-92), who, among many other accomplishments, established Greenwich as the location of the prime meridian.

        Dialogue aux enfers entre Machiavel et Montesquieu ou la politique de Machiavel aux XIXe siècle par un contemporain.

      Bruxelles Mertens 1864. (III) 337 pp. halfleer. *ex libris, papier hier en daar roestvlekkig*'Maurice Joly (1829-1878) was a French satirist and lawyer. He attacks in this book "the political ambitions of Napoleon III. It was first published in Geneva in 1864, and then in Brussels. The piece used the literary device of a dialogue between two diabolical plotters in Hell, the historical characters of Machiavelli and Montesquieu. In this way he tried to cover up a direct, and illegal, attack on Napoleon's rule. The pamphlets were smuggled into France for distribution, but were seized by the police immediately upon crossing the border. The police swiftly tracked down its author, and Joly was arrested and imprisoned for 15 months. The books were banned. (...) One of the few copies (...) found its way to Switzerland, where is was picked up by the Russian police and served as the basis for 'The protocols of the elders of Zion'." Wikipedia.

        Holograph Draft of a Dispatch to the War Department

      ?(Cipher)/ City Point, Va. Dec. 30th 1864/ Hon. E.M. Stanton, Sec. of War./ The accompanying dispatch was received over your signature and answered. Subsequently a dispatch from operator was received stating that it should have been signed G. Wells [sic], Sec. of the Navy. It is all right however for I do not propose to correspond with the Navy Dept about Military operations except through you. My first dispatch gives all that I would advise should be said to the Sec. of the Navy for the present. U.S. Grant/ Lt. Gen. [ink line through each]/ I will say to Mr. Welles that I will advise with you about further operations against Wilmington and he can get his information from you. U.S. Grant/ Lt. Gen.? One page; folded; excellent condition. This piece was reproduced in facsimile at page 188 in Louis A. Coolidge?s The Life of Ulysses S. Grant ( Centenary Edition. Boston: Houghton, Mifflin, 1922). In the list of illustrations, it is noted that this was then in the possession of the author. Grant made his headquarters at City Point, from where he directed operations against Petersburg and Richmond, as well as commanding other Union armies in the field. Famously informal and modest, the headquarters of the only regularly promoted Lieutenant-General since George Washington was in a log cabin. Nevertheless, this dispatch illustrates how aware Grant was of the prerogatives of his unique rank and that he was not reluctant to assert these when he perceived them as threatened.

A radical Republican paper, the TRI-WEEKLY STATESMAN records the last days of the Civil War, as well as Indian incursions in the West, the evolving gold-mining story which was rapidly drawing adventurers to Idaho, and other important news items. It was the first newspaper published in Boise and in the territory.
