My Portfolio acknowledges that when parents fail, it is up to the community to support the affected children. "This earth, seemingly so fair and beautiful, is disfigured by many dark habitations of cruelty. We may see English fathers and mothers converting happy English homes into abodes of sin and misery...girls rescued by the hands of police have found homes within the walls of our Reformatories, and have there been trained for service...the sale of this little volume is for the benefit of one of these schools...Humbly and yet hopefully I appeal to the benevolence public with this entreaty that they will by their help and by their influence do their utmost to further this Labour of Love." Some of the works are anonymous, but some of the c … [Click Below for Full Description]

GORDON, Lieutenant Colonel Charles George
Edward Stanford,, London, 1865. Case map of Shanghai, China, and vicinity by "Chinese Gordon" Lithograph map, hand-coloured, dissected and mounted on linen, of military plan of the country around Shanghai. The earliest serious British attempt to map the area around Shanghai, China. Surveyed by 'Chinese Gordon' during the Taiping Rebellion. An extremely rare map depicting Shanghai and her enivrons. The map, by British military officer Charles George Gordon (or 'Chinese Gordon'), covers from the mouth of the Yangtze River south to the Tsien Tan River (Fushun River), Hangchao (Hangzhou), and from Ching Keang (Zhenjiang) to the Tunsha Banks, including all of the country in between, the Grand Canal, Shanghai, Soo Chow (Suzhou), Tai-Hu Lake (Tai Lake), and Hoo Chow (Huzhou). The map was produced by Gordon whilst he was leading the Qing 'Ever Victorious Army' against the Taiping rebels between 1862 and 1865. The manuscript plan drafted by Lieutenant Colonel Charles George Gordon and his Chinese assistants apparently covered an area of over 80 square metres. Following the defeat of the Taiping Rebellion in 1864, the map was zincographed at the Topographical Department of the War Office in Southampton, then under the direction of Colonel Henry James. This enormous map was, in turn, reissued in the same year, the present example, on a reduced scale by Edward Stanford. Although the British had been present in this area for some time, Gordon's map, surveyed to facilitate his campaigns during the rebellion, represents the first focused British survey of the Shanghai region. Gordon would … [Click Below for Full Description]

When one was building a home back in 1865, often they would go to the Builder's office and look through pictures of home plans in their price range. This particular set of lithographs was the $1000 house plans in that day. R.W. Shoppell designed the houses and Victor Petit did the art work. There are so many amazing things about this collection. First of all, what you could get for $1,000 back then. That's a pretty good deal. the fact that these lithographs are over a hundred and fifty years old and still have such color and vibrancy is Thoroughly amazing. The fact that all 50 lithographs are still contained in this folio is unbelievable. I have seen these individual lithographs sell from $75 each to $200 each. There are 50 individual lithographs that measure approximately 11" by 14". They are not without their issues. There is some spotting and discoloration around the edges. The brilliant colors of the lithograph have really stood the test of time.

" Mr T.Smith laid upon the table a handsome volume, entitled "Sheffield and its Neighbourhood Photographically Illustrated," which he had just published and which was greatly admired.The Illustrations of which there are sixteen - are very fine; consisting principally of views of places more or less historically interesting.There is also one which may be said to be of national interest being an interior view of John Brown & Companys Armour Plate Works wherein are represented the forgeman at their work.Another illustration is specially interesting to photographers, being an instantaneous street view (High Street) taken so late in the year as an afternoon in Sept " [The British Jnl of Photography 13/1/1865 pp 22] Crown Quarto xii.132pps Gersheim 279.Original endpapers with the heraldic bookplate of Baron Foley of Kidderminster to the pastedown. *The publication of the book by the leading London publisher of photographically illustrated books placed a Sheffield photographer in the company of Roger Fenton and Francis Bedford and would presumably have been a source of civic pride.

Boston, Reginald Chesterfield, o.J. [d.i. Altona, Verlags-Büro, ca. 1863-1865]. 3 Bände. 16°. Bd. I.: 407 S. u. 4 Bll. mit Verlagsanzeigen; Bd. II.: 454 S. und 1 Bl. mit Verlagsanzeigen; Bd. III.: 477 S. und 3 nn. S. mit Verlagsanzeigen. Rote HLederbände d. Zt. (um 1880) mit goldgepr. RTiteln und ornamentaler Goldprägung. Kleine Rarität: die mit |3 Bänden komplette Folge der Priapischen Romane|, einheitlich gebunden in hübsche rote HLederbändchen. Jeder Band mit einer |neckischen erotischen Titelvignette| versehen (Nachstich des Titelkupfers der Orig.-Ausgabe). Die Originalausgabe der "Priapischen Romane" (Rom, Cazzovulva) erschien 1791/92 bis 1797 mit sehr frühen, vollständigen und unkastrierten Übersetzungen dreier berühmter erotischer Werke: Clelands "Fanny Hill", hier unter dem Titel "Ein Frauenzimmer von Vergnügen", Choriers "Frauenzimmerschule" und Nerciats "Mein Noviziat". August Prinz mit seinem Verlagsbureau in Altona brachte von ca. 1863 bis 1865 einen Nachdruck der schon zu damaliger Zeit ungemein seltenen Originalausgabe unter der (natürlich) fingierten Verlagsadresse "Boston, Reginald Chesterfield" heraus. Denn alle drei Werke unterlagen quasi von Geburt an der Zensur und staatsanwaltlichen Verfolgung. So sind inzwischen natürlich auch diese Nachdrucke sehr rar, zumal in der komplett 3-bändigen und einheitlich gebunden Form. Zu dieser Ausgabe sollen lt. Hayn-Got. VI, 522 wohl separat 15 Fotografien nach alten Kupfern erschienen sein, aber selbst Hayn-Got. hat kein Exemplar mit den Fotografien gesehen, keine weitere Bibliographie bzw.

Edant (Gabriel ; Lyon 1804-1863) :
Lyon, Imprimerie de Rey et Sézanne, 1865 ; in-8 (198 mm), demi-veau rouge, dos à nerfs souligné de filets dorés, titre doré (reliure de l'époque) ; VI, 188 pp., portrait photographique assis avec un bonnet, signée J. Thierry, collée au verso du faux-titre (le portrait est annoncé dans la notice liminaire comme "tiré à peu d'exemplaires"). Edition originale ; le photographe Jean Pierre Thierry était "daguerréotype au 6, rue du Bât d'argent à Lyon vers les années 1840-1850" (d'après Voignier p.239), avant de monter à Paris ; il a participé aux Expositions Universelles de 1855 et 1867 et aux expositions de la Société Française de Photographie de 1857, 1863, 1864 et de Bruxelles en 1856. D'après Guy Borgé (Les premiers photographes lyonnais au XIXe siècle), il avait publié, en 1847, un traité "Daguerréotypie", qui justifie sa très bonne maitrise dans ce domaine.Commerçant et fabriquant de soieries, Gabriel Edant fut un militant très engagé des milieux socialistes et communistes à Lyon. Lors de la Révolution de 1848, il fait partie du Comité révolutionnaire qui s'installa à l'Hôtel de ville, et plus particulièrement du comité d'organisation du Travail et au comité des subsistances, il y eut la responsabilité d'approvisionner plus de sept mille travailleurs et leur famille. En 1851, il refusa de prêter serment à l'empereur, il fut donc "démissionné". Bon exemplaire de cet ouvrage et de ce portrait photographique fort rares. Port et assurance inclus pour tout envoi en France Métropolitaine.

Maps are not affected sans almost imperceptible darkening outside of the right lower map borders (not on any map areas or on map borders) of mostly the early pages. Good solid atlas. Very interesting inscription on the blank page before the title page. Inscription is an autograph signed dedication of the book to the Birdie Bell Boys and Girls Republic Library from Dr. Marietta Lois Bell (Stow) who was an important original California women's activist and feminist. As a lawyer she established the probate system in CA. She ran for Governor of California and Vice President of the USA. Was a fashion trendsetter wearing skirt/pants. She established the mentioned school which I believe exists in some form in other US States today. Oakland Library and UC Berkeley have or have had some of her works/items on exhibit.

[Ohio]. [Periodicals]
Cincinnati, 1865. About very good.. Small broadside, approximately 11 x 5.5 inches. Previously folded. Light tanning and scattered foxing. Light dust soiling and stray ink at head and hoot. An unrecorded prospectus for a white supremacist business periodical, which began publication in the wake of the Civil War in Cincinnati, under the editorship of William Munnell. The prospectus describes the aims of the paper thus: "We believe white supremacy and negro subordination to be the true relation of the two races. We oppose the degradation of our white laborers and producers by black soldiers and black suffrage; nor are we willing that Western and Southern society shall be sunk under the weight of a race incapable of self-government. Every measure not inconsistent with the foregoing principles which is calculated to build up and unite the West and South in business, social and political pursuits will receive the hearty co-operatson [sic] of this paper, without regard to who may first advance it. The West and South will give a weekly report of the Cincinnati Markets." The periodical published weekly issues from late 1865 through 1868. In addition to describing its editorial brief, the lower quarter of the broadside provides a blank table for the collection of subscriptions. OCLC locates scattered issues of the paper itself in a dozen institutions, with only Duke and the Public Library of Cincinnati holding issues from its initial year of publication and this prospectus being unknown.

Bingham made a profound argument against eight individuals who were accused of conspiring against Lincoln, just two months following Lincoln's death. This argument, which was eventually published in book form, included intense accusations of Jefferson Davis, whom Bingham calls just as guilty as John Wilkes Booth, for his attitude of hatred and slander against Lincoln. This 1865 first edition of Bingham's 'Argument' is an incredibly valuable piece of American Civil War history and has notoriously been difficult to find.

Henry Melton
ont> John Camden Hotten: London. Ont> John Camden Hotten: London, 1865 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A very scarce, charming fashion work on hats by the royal hatter, Henry Melton. Presented in a smart condition, this pocket sized work is a fascinating insight to the history of hats, and the nineteenth century fashions. The first edition of this work. 'Her Majesty was one of the first to patronize hats for the Royal Family, and in due course to adopt them herself'. Melton provides a brief introduction to the history of hats, before delving into methods of making, the certain materials used, in addition to an array of hat styles. He refers to certain noted individuals such as Charles Dickens, Queen Elizabeth I, George IV and the Count D'Orsay, regarding their preferred style of hats. He also discusses the hats worn by his own patrons, Albert the Prince Consort and Edward VII, Prince of Wales. To pages 75-77 Melton discusses how Sir Edwin Landseer's painting 'Eos' of Prince Albert's favourite greyhound does not display the maker's label to the top hat. A vignette of this painting has been used for the front board design. 'Had but the hat been placed just an inch more horizontally, the crown would have displayed my name as 'Hatter to His Royal Highness' and thus rendered me an incalculable service, without prejudicing the picture in the least degree. ' Melton also discusses his own development in style, and European influences of his own handiwork. To the preface Melton writes, 'I am not actuated by motives chiefly associated with my own interest, my greatest desi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rare. PHOTOGRAPHIE ORIGINALE DE P.-J. PROUDHON PAR ET. CARJAT. 19 JANVIER 1865. 106 x 62 MM. (TIRAGE ORIGINAL ALBUMINE SUR CARTON). FORMAT CARTE DE VISITE. Pierre-Joseph Proudhon photographié sur son lit de mort par Etienne Carjat (19 janvier 1865). Pierre-Joseph Proudhon (1809-1865), photographié par Etienne Carjat sur son lit de mort le 19 janvier 1865, à Paris, dans la maison du 12 Rue de Passy (Paris, XVIe). Pierre-Joseph Proudhon (1809-1865), les yeux clos, la sueur au front et les cheveux mouillés encore perceptibles à plus de 150 années de distance, sur son lit de mort au n°12 de la rue de Passy à Paris (XVIe arr.), photographié le 19 janvier 1865 par Etienne Carjat. Tirage albuminé contrecollé sur carton 106 x 62 mm. Gustave Courbet, ami de Proudhon et de Carjat, rate cet instant où la vie s'éteint sous nos yeux. Courbet fera peu de temps après une estampe à partir de cette photographie. Quelques heures avant son décès, ses amis libertaires réunis autour de lui se voyaient confier ses précieux manuscrits. Ses obsèques eurent lieu le lendemain 20 janvier. Deux jours après, le 22 janvier 1865, Émile de Girardin (directeur du journal La Presse) fait remarquer que Proudhon était mort de l'incapacité où il avait été mis d'exercer son robuste talent de polémiste. Son influence fut considérable sur les ouvriers qui fondèrent l'Internationale en France. Elle s'exerce encore, directement ou indirectement, sur le mouvement ouvrier français. « Être gouverné, c'est être gardé à vue, inspecté, espionné, dirigé, légiféré, réglementé, parqué, endoctriné, prêché, contrôlé, estimé, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Currier & Ives, after Anthony Berger]: [Lincoln, Abraham]
New York: Pubd. by Currier & Ives, 1865. Colored lithograph, 15 3/4 x 11 3/4inches. Mild toning. Several repaired closed tears in margins, three-inch repaired tear extending through caption area (no loss to text). Good. Matted. An engaging handcolored depiction of Abraham Lincoln as the Great Emancipator, based on the portrait photograph of Lincoln by Anthony Berger (Feb. 9, 1864, Brady & Co. Studio). Here, a male slave's shackles fall away as he kneels in gratitude to Lincoln and kisses his hand, while the formerly enslaved man's wife and children look on. "Unlike the biblical quote from Leviticus cited in the caption of this lithograph, Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation declared freedom only to those slaves in the eleven Confederate states that had seceded. It would require passage of the Thirteenth Amendment in January of 1865 to liberate slaves elsewhere throughout the nation, particularly in the border states of Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland, and Delaware" - National Portrait Gallery. This image did much to make emancipation seem less dangerous to skittish whites at the time, portraying slaves as meek and grateful to their white liberators.

A Paris, chez JB Baillières et fils. Londres, Madrid, New York. In-8 (211 x 130 mm) 1865. 400 pp; reliure de l'époque. Édition originale, premier tirage ("five city imprint", faux-titre et dernier feuillet à l'adresse de Creté). A Paris, chez JB Baillières et fils. Londres, Madrid, New York. --- Claude Bernard part du principe que la méthode expérimentale, employée avec succès pour l'étude des corps inertes, peut aussi être utilisée pour l'étude des corps vivants. Il distingue l'expérience de l'observation. Par la nouveauté de ses développements, l'ampleur des problèmes étudiés, sa rédaction dans un style scientifique moderne, le livre dépasse son cadre médical, exerce autant d'influence sur les écrivains que sur les biologistes et fut très vite universellement reconnu.

ROUSSEL DE MÉRY Auguste Constantin;
A. Lacroix, Verboeckhoven & Cie, 1865. In-12 (103 x 67 mm), 1 f. n. ch., 314 pp. Chagrin violet, double filet d'encadrement, fleuron au centre, dos à nerfs orné d'abeilles, titre et date dorés, filet sur les coupes et les coiffes, roulette intérieure, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Un virulent pamphlet anticlérical. Cet ouvrage fut publié la première fois à Bruxelles en 1864. Il est composé de six entretiens entre Gros-Jean et un curé systématiquement contredit et découragé par l'indéfectible athéisme de son interlocuteur. Le texte est suivi de nombreuses notes et pièces justificatives. Le titre fait allusion à une expression célèbre et à un ouvrage du jésuite Jean-Joseph Rossignol, publié en 1791, portant le titre Gros-Jean qui remontre à son curé, et les doutes d'un villageois, résolus par son pasteur. Notre texte prend évidemment le contre-pied de toutes ces références. L'ouvrage figure bien au catalogue informatisé de la bibliothèque du Vatican. Cet exemplaire a été relié avec un feuillet factice indiquant Poésies par Turquery, Bruxelles, Chez tous les libraires, 1862. Il a été relié avec la même intention d'incognito car on peut lire au dos : Poésies de Turquery, 1862. Bel exemplaire en reliure de l'époque. Barbier, Dictionnaire des ouvrages anonymes, II, p. 576.

CLAUSIUS, RUDOLF
Zurich: Jahrgang, Erstes Heft, 1865. First edition. FIRST EDITION IN SCARCE ORIGINAL WRAPPERS OF CLAUSIUS' INTRODUCTION OF THE TERM 'ENTROPY' AND THE CULMINATION OF HIS WORK ON THE SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS; PRECEDES THE PUBLICATION IN ANNALEN DER PHYSIK. Clausius explains his introduction of the term 'entropy' as follows: "I propose to name the quantity S the entropy of the system, after the Greek word [τροπη trope], the transformation. I have deliberately chosen the word entropy to be as similar as possible to the word energy: the two quantities to be named by these words are so closely related in physical significance that a certain similarity in their names appears to be appropriate." Clausius concludes the present paper with his now classic statement of the first and second laws of thermodynamics: 'Die Energie der Welt ist constant; die Entropie strebt einen Maximum zu.' ('The energy of the universe is constant; the entropy of the universe tends towards a maximum'). "The beautiful symmetry of this statement... did not suffice to impose the [entropy] concept in early thermodynamics. Clausius himself preferred the now forgotten concept of disgregation, which he intuitively grasped as the dispersion of the molecules of a body... the leaders of British thermodynamics judged the entropy concept too abstract and rather reasoned in terms of available and dissipated energy, which directly referred to the human ability to exploit energy sources - and, for Thomson, to God's unwillingness to intervene in the created world.

Octavo (8 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches; 223 x 146 mm).[1]-46, [2, blank] pp. Original grey printed wrappers. Wrappers chipped along lower portion of the spine and slightly chipped along edges.

He married a sister of General Vallejo and became very wealthy. In 1863, Leese and other promoters founded the Mexican Mining and Colonization Company and obtained a land grant from the Mexican government of some 46,800 square miles between the 24th and 31st parallels of latitude in Baja California. They failed to meet their obligations, however, and the grant was transferred to another party in 1866. The outline was written "in the interest of the Mexican Mining and Colonization Company." In addition to details on the grant, it provides material on the discovery, early settlements, missions, mineral resources, and pearl fisheries of Baja California." (Hill, 998). Hill, 998.
