        A Physical and Geological Map of England and Wales By G.B. Greenough Esq. F.R.S. (on the basis of the original Map of William Smith 1815) Revised and Improved under the Superintendence of a Committee of the Geological Society of London, from the maps of the Geological Survey of Great Britain, 1836-63 and the Maps and Documents contributed by Sir R. I. Murchison, Professor Phillips, Joseph Prestwich, R. Godwin Austen, and others. [together with]: Memoir of a Geological Map of England, to which is added, an Alphabetical Index to the Hills, and a List of the Hills Arranged according to counties. By George Bellas Greenough F.R.S.

      Published by the Geological Society, July 1865., London, - Greenough recognises his debt to William Smith Large engraved map with fine contemporary hand colour, in four sections dissected and laid on linen, together with, 8vo., xi, 29pp., booklet, later half green morocco over marbled paper boards. The present third and final posthumous edition, published in 1865, was the only edition that credited the maps debt to William Smith. The see item ? for a full description of Greenough's map. has been greatly revised and updated by to include, the latest information from among others, the Geological Survey of Great Britain (1836-63), Sir R. I. Murchison, Professor Phillips, Joseph Prestwich, and R. Godwin Austen. The work also comes with the rare 'Memoir' (Introduction), in which Greenough sets out the various improvements to the maps design and the numerous sources on which he drew. One of the most striking differences is in the use of colour and pattern (something of a pet project of Greenough's) to represent different geological information, in order, "to make the [ie colours] of a geological map speak to the mind as well as to the eye".

        Adolph von Menzel: Notizblatt mit Kinderstudien (Originalzeichnung)

      1865 - Bleistift und Aquarell auf Papier 12,5 x 18,3 cm Links unten Nachlass-Stempel Provenienz: Nachlass des Künstlers Kunsthandel Julius Böhler, München. Diese kleine Skizzenblock-Seite nutzte Adolph Menzel recto und verso als Abstrichpapier für Farbproben während der Arbeit an einem Aquarell, obwohl er das Blatt offensichtlich bereits für Skizzen gebraucht hatte. Die fast übermalten Bleistiftstudien zeigen nach Ansicht von Claude Keisch die kleinen Kinder seiner Schwester Emilie und seines Schwagers Hermann Krigar, die Nichte Margarethe und den Neffen Krigar-Menzel, geboren 1860 und 1861. Auf der Rückseite dieser Studie findet sich ebenfalls eine Bleistiftskizze aus dem häuslichen Umfeld des Künstlers, ein Arm und Hände mit Nadel und Faden. Ein vergleichbar übermaltes Studienblatt aus den frühen 1860iger Jahren befindet sich im Kupferstichkabinett zu Berlin, in diesem Fall sogar mit einem verworfenen Selbstportrait in der Pose des friderizianischen Hofmalers Antoine Pesne.

        THE FIRST OF MAY 1865 OR GENL MOVING DAY IN RICHMOND VA

      New York: Published by H. & W. Voight. Lith. by Kimmel & Forster, 254 & 256 Canal St., 1865. Broadside illustration, 9" x 10-3/8". Toning to print. Brightly colored, mildly toned. Small spot at top blank margin. Upper margin of blank verso shows remnants from former taping. Lower blank forecorner chipped. Very Good. "From building inscribed, 'To let Apply Lincoln & Co.', Southerners, at whom Negro thumbs his nose, are moving 'C.S.A. Treasury,' etc." [Weitenkampf]. Anticipating the end of the Civil War in Richmond, the cartoon depicts Robert E. Lee collecting swords for placement in a cart drawn by two skeletal dogs, Treasury Secretary Trenholm hauling away worthless Confederate bonds, and a "Sheriff Sale" sign on the building. Bystanders look on. A dog urinates on a box entitled "C.S.A. Treasury. Waster Paper." Despite the title's date, the cartoon was probably issued before May 1, that date being the artist's prediction of the time of the Confederacy's collapse. The reference to Lincoln & Co. suggests the President was still alive. Weitenkampf 148 [recording a 1905 reproduction only]. Not in Reilly. OCLC 191119865 [3- AAS, Clements, U VA] as of September 2017. Also located at the Library of Congress, Boston Public Library, Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection.

"Dr. David Livingstone, the Scottish medical missionary, is known to history as the greatest explorer of his age and a dedicated humanitarian who devoted his life to the eradication of the African slave trade. He was a national hero to his contemporaries and time has confirmed his reputation as one of the greatest, if not the greatest, of the eminent Victorians, both in his achievement and in his influence." This is the scarce account of Livingstone's second expedition. "Other explorers we have had whose fame rose as high, but it lasted only for a few years. The influences of Dr. Livingstone's life-work, on the other hand, are so far- reaching that his fame is above the passing feelings of the time.

        Lettre autographe signée adressée à sa mère : «Me voici en mesure d'accomplir tous mes plans»

      1865 - - [Bruxelles] Vendredi 12 mai 1865, 13,2x20,8cm, 1 page sur un feuillet remplié. - Lettre autographe signée de Charles Baudelaire, rédigée à l'encre, adressée à sa mère. Quelques soulignements, biffures et corrections de l'auteur. Cette lettre a été publiée pour la première fois dans Charles Baudelaire, Dernières Lettres inédites à sa mère en 1926. Ancienne collection Armand Godoy n°197. Précieuse lettre de l'époque bruxelloise, exil volontaire du poète à la fin de sa vie. « Il est douteux que j'habite quelque part à Paris. Je crois que j'habiterai surtout une voiture dans laquelle je ferai, si je peux, toutes mes courses en un ou deux jours. ». Angoissé par Paris - cité des vices et des créanciers - il appréhende cette brève visite. L'exil bruxellois est en effet synonyme d'échec pour le poète qui ne cesse, depuis son arrivée en Belgique, de repousser son retour en France. Pourtant, impatient de quitter le plat pays qu'il exècre, il raille ses autochtones : « On est lent ici ». Le poète, comme jadis l'élève de dix-sept ans qui affirmait à sa mère qu'il allait se ressaisir, promet « Me voici en mesure d'accomplir tous mes plans. Je ne sais comment t'exprimer ma reconnaissance ; et je crois que la meilleure manière sera d'exécuter mes promesses. » Littéralement obsédé par cette mère sacrée « qui hante [son] cœur et [son] esprit », le « fils reconnaissant » s'estime incapable d'atteindre sa destinée poétique sans une attention maternelle exclusive. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Letter autograph signed by Charles Baudelaire, written in ink, addressed to his mother. Some highlights, redactions and corrections of the author.

        A TREATISE ON THE LAW OF CONSOLIDATION OF RAILROAD COMPANIES; BEING AN ARGUMENT IN THE CASE OF JULIUS WADSWORTH, OF NEW YORK, ET AL. VERSUS CHICAGO & NORTHWESTERN RAILWAY COMPANY, WILLIAM B. OGDEN, ET AL. IN THE UNITED STATES CIRCUIT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS, HON. DAVID DAVIS, OF THE U.S. SUPREME COURT, PRESIDING

      Chicago: Beach & Barnard, Printers, 14 South Clark Street, 1865. xvi, 288 pp. Bound in modern cloth, with spine title stamped in gilt. A clean and bright text. Near Fine. Anthony, who as a student read law with Timothy Dwight, moved to Illinois in 1852. He quickly rose in the Illinois Bar, was elected City Attorney and Corporation Counsel, and was counsel to the Galena and Chicago United Railroad. When that Road amalgamated with the Chicago and Northwestern, the nonconsenting stockholders and bondholders hired him to nullify the consolidation. He argues here that a law authorizing consolidation of the capital stock of "two distinct corporations" is void unless all shareholders agree. Otherwise, it "would impair the obligations of the contract which a share holder enters into with the corporation when he becomes a member of it, contrary to the 10th section of the Constitution of the United States" and its parallel Illinois provision.David Davis managed Abraham Lincoln's campaign for the Republican nomination in 1860; Lincoln appointed him to the Supreme Court. Ante-Fire Imprints 872. Not in Harv. Law Cat. or Marke. OCLC records two locations and many Kirtas Technologies reprints as of April 2017.

        Keeping score at the 1865 Tufts University baseball game between the sophomore and freshman classes, as recorded in an autograph scorecard, an inning-by-inning columnar account, set up similar to the scorecards in use today, showing the results of each at bat and with end-of- the-game summaries, including "flies caught," "flies missed," and "left on bases"

      (Medford, MA) 1865 - Broadsheet manuscript, 8 3/4 x 7 5/8 inches, the sophomore class performance on recto, freshman on verso. The sophomore class won the game, umpired by E.A. Perry, 33-30, coming from behind with seven runs in the bottom of the ninth; with all the scoring, there were no home runs. Field positions are noted for each player. "The first official baseball game at Tufts College was played on September 5, 1863, when a team of sophomores defeated the freshman team, 9-6 . it was not until 1863 that a game was recorded as official. That year, a group of freshmen challenged the sophomore class to a game, and the next year, an official baseball program was organized. In 1864, two teams appeared on the Tufts campus, the All Nine and the Balliu Club . in 1868, the Tufts College All Nine began competing informally against other local schools. The next year, Tufts recorded its first recognized intercollegiate game against Brown University" (online "Concise Encyclopedia of Tufts History"). A few cracks at folds, lower half of verso browned; still a good example of an early manuscript scorecard for an American college baseball game. (#8480).

        Tahrir Qawa'id al-Risala al-Shamsiyya.

      1865 - 220 pp., Arabic Text neatly hand written, 18 lines to the page, tables, some headings written in red, a couple of pages have light damp stains, very good copy, contemporary full stamped calf, inscribed 30 March, 1865. Najam al-Din al-Qazwini al-Khatibi (d.1276) was an Islamic philosopher and logician. His most important work is this work on logic. It was commonly used as the first major text on logic in madrasas, until the twentieth century and is "perhaps the most studied logical textbook of all time". Al-Katibi’s logic was largely inspired by the formal Avicennian system of temporal modal logic, but is more elaborate and departs from it in several ways. While Avicenna considered ten modalities and examined six of them, al-Katibi considered many more modalized propositions and examined thirteen which he believed were "customary to investigate".

        Ci est la légende mémorable & lamentable du Sire de Framboisy mise, pas en musique, mais à l?eau-forte par Ch. Combe peintre d?histoires & éditée à Paris par Cadart & Luquet.

      [1865] 1865 - Demi-chagrin rouge à coins, dos à nerfs, titre et auteur dorés, double filet doré sur les plats, feuillets montés sur onglets. Faux-titre, titre, douze planches de dessins. Ensemble de 14 dessins à la plume illustrant la chanson du Sire de Framboisy, sur papier vergé, protégé par des serpentes. Chaque planche est signée et légendée d?une phrase de la chanson. Il s?agit d?un projet de recueil d?eaux-fortes pour les éditeurs Cadart et Luquet, comme l?indique la page de titre. Cadart et Luquet furent à l?origine de la Société des Aquafortistes et s?affirmèrent comme des acteurs majeurs du renouveau de l?eau-forte originale au XIXe siècle.Une tâche en haut des deux dernières planches.Dans sa correspondance avec Antonin Duval, il mentionne le Sire de Framboisy. ?J?ai commencé M. de Framboisy, je soigne beaucoup les contours et les effets ; comme vous m?avez dit que Cadart voulait du flamboyant.? Il s?agit de notre exemplaire qu?Antonin Duval fera relier et auquel il accollera son ex-libris.?Il ne pouvait réussir complètement dans un seul genre, celui qui révèle le mieux l?artiste de race, c?est-à-dire le dessin dans toutes ses manifestations :le noir sur le blanc. Dans ce genre, il excella. Il était lumineux sans couleur et puissant parfois avec les moyens les plus simples et les plus primitifs.?Envoyé à Paris en 1851 pour suivre les cours de l?Ecole de droit, Charles Combe (Dieulefit, 1828-1877) fréquente les musées, les ateliers d?art et le quartier latin. A son retour à Dieulefit, il s?engage dans le métier d?artiste. Son oeuvre réside principalement en livres uniques. Il dessine également pour les Félibres. En 1862, il adhère à la Société des aqua-fortistes, au côté de Corot, Jonking, Manet. le but de cette société est de faire chaque mois une livraison de cinq eaux-fortes qui au bout de l?année seraient réunies et précédées d?unepréface. Il leur en fournira deux. Hetzel dira de lui dans une lettre adressée à Antonin Duval ?C?est meilleur par plus d?un côté que ce que font la moitié des gens qui vivent ou à peu près de leur crayon déjà. Mais cela ne se présente pas dans les conditions d?art bourgeois qui peuvent tout de suite trouver acquéreur? Ainsi, cette fougue, ce naturel, cette vivacité du trait, cette honneteté face à son univers d?artiste l?a retenu de se faire connaitre. Il quitte les aqua-fortistes en 1866.Antonin Duval (1823-1887), riche industriel lyonnais, au sein d?une société aisée et amateur d?art, sera son mécène et son ami intime. Il servira d?intermédiaire auprès d?éditeurs et d?acheteurs. Il procurera à Charles Combe des livres à illustrer et en conservera de nombreux. Il tentera de le faire connaître, jusqu?après sa mort, devenant même son premier biographe.Provenance : Antonin Duval.J.Bailly-Herzberg, 'La Société des Aquafortistes', 1972, II p.48.Bulletin de la Société départementale et statistique de la Drôme. 1878, vol.

        Original photograph of Florence "Flo" Maude Terry

      London: Kentish Town, Caversham Rd., July 17, 1865, 1865. AN UNRECORDED PHOTOGRAPH BY DODGSON. Original photograph trimmed to an oval measuring 10 x 7.5 cm, mounted to a piece of card stock, verso of card stock with a contemporary inscription which reads "Flossey Terry July 1865.", housed in a contemporary victorian black wooden frame, image slightly faded but still sharp. According to the catalogue raisonne of Dodgson's photographs by Edward Wakeling there are 2 similar images of Florence numbered 1351 and 1353. This image seams clearly to be the missing image #1352. This visit is well documented by Dodgson. His diary entry reads "At Terrys, took Flo as 'Cinderella," and one or two others..."

        Conchologia Iconica. Monographs of the genus Cerithidea, Cerithium, Lampania, Potamides, Pyrazus, Telescopium, Tympanotonos, and Vertagus.

      London, Lovell A. Reeve, 1865-1866. Folio (25.9 x 20.3 cm). Titles and indices to all parts, and 36 beautifully hand-coloured plates [Cerithidea (1866) 4; Cerithium (1865) 20; Lampania 1866) 2; Potamides (1866) 1; Pyrazus (1865) 1; Telescopium (1865) 1; Tympanotonos (1866) 2; Vertagus (1865-1866) 5]; all with explanatory text leaves. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. Spine with gilt lines and title. Marbled endpapers.= Very rare copy of the combined Cerithoidea in "Conchologia Iconica", started by Lovell Reeve in 1843 and finished (rather than completed) long after Reeve's death in 1865 by G. B. Sowerby, comprising 20 volumes in all. Cerithioidea was not yet recognized in Reeve's days as a superfamily, but the gross similarity of the genera involved made this "natural" grouping evident and the short time span between the parts published suggests that they were studied by the author(s) simultaneously. These monographs, perhaps the first done by Sowerby alone, include the description of several hundred species including many that were poorly known or new. Most of the descriptions are based on material collected by the most famous shell collector of the 19th century, Hugh Cuming (1791-1865). "...Reeve had become acquainted with Cuming, and Reeve's life was changed forever. ... Their association was such as to encourage Reeve to begin the Conchologia Iconica in 1843 primarily for description of Cuming material. Many of the Part covers for the Iconica carry the wording “Illustrated chiefly from the Cumingian Collection" (Petit). Small paper repair to one text leaf margin, a few tiny pencil annotations, otherwise very good with all the plates clean and finely, accurately hand-coloured. Caprotti, p. 213; Nissen ZBI, 3331.

The book is original. Details of touch ups : Title Page : Laid to card for strength, the reverse in the original is a blank page. Page edges restored To The reader/Contents Page : Page edges restored to all 4 sides, no loss of text. Jan/Feb Page : Page edges reatored to 3 sides, small loss of text under repair.

All other pages :Some wear to page edges. Apart from the repairs the pages are very nice and clear, in the middle of the book it is close to pristine pages, hence getting the front of the book restored. Price reduced to composate the repairs, without them it would be £2000+ more expensive, 2nd Edition.

        The Gipsies; Being a Brief Account of Their History,origin, Capabilities, Manners and Customs with Suggestions for the Reformation and Conversion of the English Gissies.

      London: W. Lister, 1865. Small Octavo. . ix, 178 pp. (2)pp. ads. . While the aristocrats looked down upon the Gipsies for their habits, sloviness and their frequent theft of money or property, Henry Woodcock was among the leading ministers in England who felt they should be viewed as needing the same Gospel that was aimed at all people. They devised scams of every sort such as stealing a horse and selling it to the owner's wife telling her this was an even more noble horse of the same pedigree (costing the owner 10 pounds in the process). Details their devotion to fortune-telling, instead of using banks to invest they would take their valuable acquisitions and deposit them with pawn brokers giving them security just in case inquiring officers inspected their wagons or huts. While the point of Rev. Woodcock's work was to encourage evangelizing the Gipsies, the effect for us today is to enter a glimpse into how a population of an estimated 50 to 60,000 of these outcasts lived and were viewed in Victorian England. Bound in publisher's burgundy floral embossed cloth, spine gilt lettered and with a floral gilt design, pale yellow endpapers, light wear to corners and spine ends, front inner hinge just starting. A very good copy of this scarce work with some fading or staining to cloth.
