      Boston: Wright & Potter, Printers, . 1865 - 61pp. plus two plates and folding map. Narrow quarto. Original wrappers. Titlepage chipped on bottom and foredge, moderately dampstained. Map cleanly torn, affecting one inch of image; also cleanly separated along one fold. Moderate dampstaining of plates and pp.1-15. Some additional very light dampstaining in upper outer corner of text. A good copy. In a half morocco box. A scarce privately circulated prospectus setting forth the optimistic plan of the Overland Traction Engine Company to haul freight and passengers overland aboard steam traction engines from the Missouri River to the Rockies. The plates, lithographed by Prang & Co., show two views of the engine - one encased, the other uncovered. A fabulous idea at a time when supplies were routinely carried hundreds of miles over the plains entirely by mule and cattle trains. In the end, however, the plan was a bit short on execution. The engine weighed fifty- four tons when fully loaded with fuel and bogged down in mud on its first trial. The folding map illustrates the prospective route west from Nebraska City. A curious 19th-century railroad alternative, which was essentially a locomotive with wheels. The NUC locates six copies and we can add another at Yale. GRAFF 3145. SABIN 57977. REESE & MILES, CREATING AMERICA 63.

      New York: H. & W. Voight, 1865. - Handcolored lithograph, 9 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches. Lightly toned, with minor wear. Very good. A satirical political print showing "moving day" at Confederate headquarters in Richmond. The lithograph depicts Gen. Robert E. Lee loading old swords in a dog cart with two scrawny dogs attached, while Treasury Secretary George Trenholm hauls a string of boxes carrying worthless bonds over his shoulder, each bearing the name of a Confederate state. A box on the sidewalk marked "C.S.A. Treasury (on which a dog is unabashedly urinating) is also labeled as "Waste Paper," and the building in the background sports signs that read "Sheriff Sale" and "To let. Apply Lincoln & Co." Several individuals - including two African Americans, one thumbing his nose - look on. The title date of May 1 would lead one to think that this lithograph was issued on that date, but in fact it was probably issued earlier in the spring, before the collapse of the Confederacy, and is speculating on its demise with May 1 as a projected to date. In fact, Richmond was occupied by Union troops on April 3. Likewise, the reference to "Lincoln & Co." is unlikely after his death on April 15. Finally, Treasury Secretary Trenholm had resigned on April 27, although this detail might have escaped a cartoonist. A very rare image. We locate copies at the American Antiquarian Society, Library of Congress, Yale, Virginia Historical Society, and Brown University.

        Juive d&#39;Alger

      Paris: Published by A. Cadart et Luquet, 79, rue de Richelieu, 1865. This stunning image is a rich proof impression of Delacroix&#39;s famous print, "Juive d&#39;Alger." In early 1832 Delacroix visited North Africa. He accompanied his friend the Count de Mornay on his good-will mission to the Sultan of Morocco, Abd-er-Rahman II. This experience had a drastic influence on his art, introducing an edge of brilliant realism into his majestic paintings and bold engravings. He filled countless sketchbooks with drawings and observations of Arab life and gathered a wealth of ideas that served him for the rest of his life. This sumptuous etching is inspired by Delacroix&#39;s travels in North Africa, and is considered one of his greatest prints. Assigned to the delegation as dragoman was Abraham-Ben-Chimol of Tangiers, a Jew who introduced Delacroix to his wife and daughter. Delacroix was greatly influenced by this encounter and he did a number of images depicting young Jewish women in simple interiors. This breathtaking image depicts a young Jewish woman in traditional dress, seated in a simple room; she is accompanied by an Algerian woman who is seated on the floor beside her. The leader of the French Romantic movement, Delacroix is widely considered to be one of the greatest French painters in history, but he is also one the most hailed printmakers of the modern age. The simple lines and bold textures of this monumental print delineate Delacroix&#39;s genius, and distinguish him as a true master of his art. This is an exceptional early impression of this important print, executed before the published title and publication details were added. Included in one of the first collections of the Society de Aqua-Fortistes publications by Cadart, this print is extremely rare in this early state. With its rich dark tones and fresh details, this is a magnificent example of Delacroix&#39;s work and a true collectors item. Between 1862 and 1866 the Societe des Aqua-Fortistes produced a five-volume collection of artists&#39; etchings entitled "Euax-Fortes Modernes." Printed on laid paper made especially for the series, this outstanding collection is one of the seminal publications to spring out of the etching revival in France. The Societe des Aqua-Fortistes was the French equivalent of the Etching Club in England and similarly it aimed to produce a collection of high quality etchings by the leading artists of the period. Like the Etching Club, the Societe des Aqua-Fortistes sought to raise the prestige of the medium from a reproductive technique to a fine art. Although the etching revival began somewhat earlier in England, the French movement exerted a far greater influence on the medium, and included a wider range of prominent artists. The Barbizon painters were among the earliest French artists to participate in the etching revival, and their superb prints helped raise the medium to new heights of genius. This unique publication, which included works by Manet, Corot, and Delacroix, is an outstanding example of fine art printing at its best Delteil, Le Peintre-Gravure Illustre , vol. III, no. 18, i/iii; Beraldi, Les Gravures du XIXe Siecle, Guide de l&#39;Amateur d&#39;Estampes Modernes , vol. V, p. 158, i/ii.

        A Gamelan Orchestra.

      Ca 1865 - An unmounted albumen photograph, with the blind stamp "W. & P. Photographieen von Ned. Indie. Batavia." at the lower right. The photograph shows the entire traditional Indonesian musical ensemble seated with their instruments, the central musician seated in an ornate chair, with an ornately carved wooden frame behind the musicians, the photograph taken in a white pillared open structure. The photographers of this image were Woodbury and Page. Walter Bentley Woodbury left England in 1852 to join the Australian gold rush. In Melbourne he met James Page and learned the wet-plate collodion method of photography. The two left in 1857 for Batavia (Jakarta) and established their studio, Woodbury & Page, which became the major creator of views in the Dutch West Indies. Woodbury later patented his invention for a permanent photograph printed with inks, called the Woodburytype. 7 1/2 x 10".

        The Modern System of Naval Architecture.

      - London, Day & Son [1865]. Three volumes large atlas folio recent half calf and cloth; large folding plate as a frontispiece in volume 1 (the text volume) and 167 plates, most double page or larger, some very large indeed, in the two volumes of plates. Title and following two leaves of the text volume creased, miniscule blindstamps in the margins and creeping dust into the margins of the plates in volume three (easily cleaned away by anyone with patience); two plates misfolded. In all a very good, remarkably good, copy. The Great Eastern of naval architecture books I read somewhere and true enough except that Russell's book has a happier history than his ship. Published at 40 guineas this was certainly a massive venture and of course offers an impressive record of the Great Eastern among the wide range of ships described and illustrated (these include plates of a screw steamer for the Australian trade of which five were built). Despite Russell's impressive list of achievements he never quite attained or held onto the success he probably deserved. Apparently this was largely due to the fact that he was 'not quite a gentleman'. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
