        Apologia Pro Vita Sua: Being A Reply to a Pamphlet Entitled What Then, Does Dr Newman Mean?

      London - Longman, Green, Longman, Roberts, And Green, 1864 Book. Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A first edition of Newman's famous defence of his life and faith; a presentation copy signed by the author. Newman wrote the work following the sharp criticisms he received in printfrom the Church of England priest, Charles Kingsley. Following a brief correspondance with Kingsley (which Newman found unsatisfactory), he decided to write a general defence of his own integrity and of Catholicism. The work quickly became a best seller, and is still in print. It established Newman as one of the most prominent advocates of Catholicism in Great Britain. It also won him the battle of public opinion. This copy was inscribed by Newman himself, as a presentation to one Emily Bowles, who met Newman in 1840 and converted to Catholicism three years later. Condition: In the original cloth with gilt titles to the spine. Externally, with some wear and fading to the spine. The extremities are a little bumped. With marking to the boards. With a bookseller's plate to the front pastedown. With a plate inscribed by the author to the front free endpaper, which has offset slightly to the title. Internally, lightly cockled, but otherwise generally clean. Generally firmly bound. Overall: GOOD.

        Autograph Letter Signed, in German, two pages on one 8vo sheet, Rome, December 10, 1924

      Buber expresses his deep sympathy to the widow of his friend Florens Christian Rang (1864-1924), known by his middle name, Christian. He was a pastor, lawyer and author, identified as a Christian Socialist and whom Buber considered to be a Jurist, philosopher and theologian. Replying to Mrs. Rang's news of her husband's death, Buber writes in part, "Your news has reached me abroad. Now I know why ever and again I felt the need to fly to Germany and to Christian - and as often as it overcame me...he like no other was to me an embodied confirmation of the eternal presence of the spirit. He has now been confirmed in eternity...He was an envoy of the Judge and an envoy of the Savior; he tested us and helped us...Life was not made easier because of his presence...but joyfully hard it was, blissfully hard. How are we to do without him whose love proved God's love for us...." Buber asks to be able to visit her with his wife on his return from Rome. He signs, "Your always devoted Martin Buber." He signs in full, "Martin Buber." Christian Rang played an important role in Buber's life. In June 1914 in Potsdam, just before the start of World War I, Buber met with a group oft intellectuals to form the Forte Circle which advocated for international unity among nations. Buber met Rang, a lawyer and former minister, at this time. Though they disagreed on various points at the Potsdam meeting, an important bond developed between the two men in the form of a Jewish-Christian dialogue. Their close friendship lasted until Rang's death as our letter shows. [ Maurice Friedman's "Martin Buber's Life and Work."].

With a coloured chromolithographic frontispiece and title page and upwards of three-hundred black and white vignette engravings by J G Thomson. In an attractive contemporary full calfgilt detailed Zaehnsdorf binding. Gulliver's Travels is a prose satire on human nature and the 'traveller's tales' literary sub genre. It is Swift's best known full-length work. Thematically, Gulliver's Travels has been subject to several designations. It has been described as Menippean satire, a children's story, proto-science fiction as well as a forerunner for the modern novel. Its three major themes involve a satirical view of the European government and the petty differences between religions, whether men are inherently corrupt and a restatement of Swift's previously addressed topic of ancients versus moderns. Condition: In a full calf binding with gilt stamped detailing to the spine. Externally, very smart with some rubbing to the spine and just a few marks to the boards. In a Zaehnsdorf binding, as indicated from binder's stamp to verso of front endpaper.

Docteur en 1844, il fut rédacteur principal de la ?Gazette médicale? de 1844 à 1853, fondateur de la ?Gazette hebdomadaire?, et consacra la plus grande partie de sa vie à la direction du ?Dictionnaire encyclopédique des sciences médicales? (Grd. Larousse enc., 3, 1960). ?? ?L?habitude d?utiliser l?ordre alphabétique pour assembler des connaissances d?une manière didactique et facile à lire se répandit dès le Moyen Age: la médecine y participa, et des ouvrages de ce type furent imprimés dès le XVIe siècle. Les dictionnaires sont des terrains d?étude inestimable pour tracer l?histoire d?un langage [.]. Leur contenu est très variable selon les buts que se sont fixés les auteurs. [.]. Le XIXe siècle fut marqué par une floraison lexicographique particulièrement considérable. Le premier ouvrage en date fut celui de Capuron en 1806 et l?on peut dire que sa descendance dure encore [.]. [.] En 1864 parut le premier tome d?un ?Nouveau Dictionnaire de médecine et de chirurgie pratique [.] dont le directeur était Jaccoud. [.] Cette même année 1864, le ?Dictionnaire encyclopédique des sciences médicales? faisait paraître son premier volume avec cent soixante dix-neuf rédacteurs dont Pasteur et Littré, A. Dechambre étant directeur: cette oeuvre monumentale de cent tomes est désormais connue sous ce nom, et elle représente la totalité de la science médicale dans la deuxième moitié du XIXe siècle. Dans sa longue introduction, Dechambre fait l?inventaire de toutes les sciences désormais indispensables à la médecine: la chimie [.], la physique, l?anatomie, la physiologie, l?histoire naturelle médicale, où la botanique tient une grande part, la thérapeutique, la méthode expérimentale [.], l?hygiène, la médecine légale, la géographie médicale et la statistique, dont la mention est appuyée par cette phrase: ?nulle part peut-être le rôle social du médecin n?est plus manifeste ni plus grand?.? (J.-C. Sournia u. A. Manuila, Histoire du Langage médicale. Dans: J. Poulet et al., dir., Histoire de la médecine, VIII [8], 1980, p. 322 f.). ? ?Seit dem Mittelalter wurde es zur Gewohnheit, die alphabetische Reihenfolge zu verwenden, um Kenntnisse auf eine didaktische und leicht lesbare Art zusammenzufassen; die Medizin stand darin nicht nach, und seit dem 16. Jahrhundert wurden Werke in dieser Weise gedruckt. Diese Wörterbücher sind ein unschätzbares Untersuchungsgebiet, um die Geschichte einer Sprache aufzuzeigen [.]. Das 19. Jahrhundert ist durch eine besonders üppige Blütezeit der Lexikographie gekennzeichnet. Zeitlich das erste war 1806 jenes von Capuron, dessen Nachfolger bis heute überlebt haben.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1864 - 1864 Wisden : Paperback with Facsimile Spine and Covers

      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.

        ALBUM PALLIERE ESCENAS AMERICANAS REDUCCION DE CUADROS, AQUARELLES, Y BOSQUEJOS

      Buenos Aires: En venta en la casa de los S[eño]res Fusoni H[erna]nos, 1864. Lithographed titlepage plus fifty-two lithographed plates (nearly all tinted), plus two original printed wrappers. Oblong folio. Later half dark blue morocco over blue pebbled cloth boards, boards and spine gilt. Spine extremities and hinges worn. Light to moderate foxing on some plates, primarily in margins. A very good copy. A very rare album of fifty-two South American scenes, originally drawn by León Pallière and finely printed as lithographic plates in Buenos Aires by J. Pelvilain. The plates include views and portraits of local inhabitants in Argentina (44), Brazil (4), Uruguay (2), Chile (1), and Bolivia (1). Pallière, born in Rio de Janeiro in 1823 to French parents, travelled to France as a young child and eventually studied art there under F.E. Picot. He continued his artistic training both in South America between 1848 and 1850 and in Europe between 1850 and 1855. He then returned to South America, travelling for the next decade in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, and Bolivia, and producing the images found in this volume. The views consist primarily of rural scenes, and many of these images portray local inhabitants in a variety of activities. These illustrations and the other images of the native and mestizo population represent a variety of local types and occupations including Indians; rural and urban mestizo laborers (including a milk man and a bread seller); middle and upper class women in a theatre gallery and in church; working men in pulperias; black men and women at a market in Bahia; gauchos; soldiers (apparently rural conscripts); and even a surveyor in the countryside. A number of the lithographs focus on life in the country: on the plains, in camp, and at home. One such image, of a couple standing outside a straw house, includes a ten-line romantic poem by R. Gutierrez. A marvellous and extremely rare album, with no copies on OCLC. Originally issued in parts, this copy comes with wrappers printed on colored paper from two of those parts laid in. PALAU 211114. BORBA DE MORAES, p.648.

        AUTOGRAPH DRAFT REPORT BY UNION OFFICER NATHANIEL C. McCLEAN, DETAILING THE BATTLE OF RESACA, AN EARLY SKIRMISH IN SHERMAN'S ATLANTA CAMPAIGN].

      Pettit's Creek, Ga. May 22, 1864. - [7]pp. with original transmittal envelope. Vertical crease throughout, light toning. Very good. An original draft report of the Battle of Resaca written entirely in the hand of Union officer Nathaniel C. McLean, with emendations in ink and pencil throughout. The Battle of Resaca occurred in northwestern Georgia, May 13-15, 1864, and pitted the forces of generals Sherman and Johnston against each other. After two days of fairly even fighting, Sherman sent a force across the Oostanaula River, forcing Johnston’s troops to retreat. Resaca was an early battle in the series of skirmishes known as the Atlanta Campaign. McLean's account begins with noting that he had only recently assumed command of his brigade and details the march toward Resaca and ensuing battle. In part: "When we had approached within very short range with our first line, the enemy opened with artillery throwing his first shot directly into the 25th Mich[igan], killing one man & wounding three others. For a few moments the fire was very hot and I was ordered to halt, which I did getting my men under cover & out of range as rapidly as possible. Subsequently under cover of the woods my line was again advanced to within a very short distance of the rebel works, & my skirmishers were constantly engaged until night terminated the conflict. At about seven o clock the next morning I was ordered to withdraw We fell back to the gap where we remained until the next day when we marched for Snake Creek Gap which we reached on the 13th and after marching for a considerable distance in line of battle towards Resaca went into camp for the night. On the 14th we again formed with a heavy line of skirmishers in front who were constantly more or less engaged & advanced towards Resaca." After assessing the land and rebel works in front of him, McLean directs his brigade into formation and is given orders to "advance and storm the rebel works.No information was given me of the strength of the rebel works, or the nature and character of the ground over which the charge was to be made." He continues to describe their charge: "I accordingly ordered an advance, and as well as I was able kept my men in line in passing over the troops of the 14th Corps & through the dense and tangled undergrowth of the forest. We passed over one or two ridges & valleys and at length reached a ridge the top of which was within musket range of the earthwork which covered the hill fortified by the enemy. They here opened fire upon us but my men steadily advanced passing over a fence at the foot of the hill when they came upon a plain exposed to the full fire of the enemy from artillery and muskets. As soon as the cleared ground was reached the whole line started forward with a tremendous shout for the rebel works. Never did men more gallantly breast the storm of death which was hurled upon them from every quarter, and their advance continued until they were broken by a bog and creek into which they plunged more than waist deep. To climb the opposite bank under such murderous fire was more than they could do, especially when we found the works so strong that with the force then attacking them there was not the slightest chance of success. Under the circumstances we were forced back leaving fully one third of the attacking party killed or wounded." McLean's account continues, then finishes with reporting that all members of his field staff "with the exception of Capt. Stagg had their horses shot under them as was also my own." The draft ends with these lines and is almost identical to the report eventually filed, save the final paragraph added to the final draft. This draft copy was mailed to McLean’s wife, and is accompanied by the original transmittal envelope. An insightful account of a notable Union victory that helped Sherman pave a path of destruction towards Atlanta.

        [CIVIL WAR DIARY FOR 1864 KEPT BY LIEUTENANT WILLIAM H. STODDARD OF THE 10th IOWA INFANTRY]

      [Tennessee & Georgia, 1864. [184]pp., 6 x 3 1/2 inches. Contemporary black leather wallet-style binding, ruled in blind and gilt. Moderate rubbing and wear to binding. One gathering detached, but present. Initial leaves lightly tanned, otherwise internally clean. Written in pencil and ink in a legible hand. Very good. A very nice example of a Civil War soldier's daily diary, diligently kept by a Union officer in 1864. William H. Stoddard was a lieutenant in the 10th Iowa Volunteer Infantry, and he served for the duration of the war. His entries include content for the Battle of Allatoona, various skirmishes and chases; and detailed accounts of Sherman's March to the Sea and the fall of Savannah. Staddard's unit was with Union forces that made their way through Tennessee and Georgia for most of the year, and he writes of making camp in Chattanooga and Decatur, among other places. He seems to have been a keen observer of events, and is able to provide a rational and accurate account. In the aftermath of the battle of Allatoona, he writes in his entries for October 6 and 7, "Considerable damage along the R.R. in the fight at Altoona [sic] our forces lost 100 men in killed wounded and missing that of the rebs at least 1400.... saw some of the wounded from the late battlefield -- the fighting proved to be of the most desperate kind as the rebs were after provisions but failed." Stoddard is a careful recorder, and documents all troop movements, particularly during Sherman's March to the Sea. He notes on November 12: "Started for Atlanta." His narration of the campaign fills all entries beginning on November 17, noting miles marched and camp locations every day, and continues until December 21 when he notes: "Savannah evacuated last night. Rebs crossing Savn River on pontoons. Marched from Miller's Plantation at 1 P.M. Marched 13 miles arriving in camp near Savn. at 5:30. Cool clear. Large amount of heavy ordnance left by Rebs." An interesting record maintained by a participant in key events, filled with more than the usual detail.
