        Miners and Travelers' Guide to Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado via the Missouri and Columbia Rivers. [important Association Copy Vancouver Island]

      Wm. M. Franklin., New York 1865 - 8vo, Lacking the Map. 153pp. [small top margin stain towards rear.] original blind-stamped green cloth. Captain John Mullan (1830-1909) American explorer, road builder, lawyer: worked to fill in the details of the geography of the upper Rocky Mountain region that was known only in outline before the 1850s. This is an excellent important association copy being and fully inscribed to the front free endpaper by the Scottish explorer Robert Brown F.R.S F.R.P.S. Commander Ist. V.I. Victoria, Vancouver Island. Brown arrived in Victoria on May 6.1863. His first expedition was to Great Central Lake, Sproat Lake, Alberni Inlet, and Nootka Sound. Subsequently, he travelled on the Olympic peninsula (Washington) and up the Fraser River. Brown's Scottish sponsors were dissatisfied with the seeds he sent back from these expeditions, and he was dismayed that they considered him a mere seed collector rather than a botanist. He further antagonized his patrons by accepting in May 1864 the position of commander and government agent on the Vancouver Island Exploring Expedition (VIEE,) organized by a committee of prominent Victoria businessmen and funded in part by the colonial government under Governor Arthur Kennedy. Brown's relationship with the committee became uneasy when he realized that its members were primarily interested in the discovery of gold. The expedition succeeded in crossing Vancouver Island at several points, in some instances by new routes. From Cowichan Lake, Brown led a group down the Nitinat River to Whyac along a route approximating the one travelled by Joseph Pemberton in 1857, while another party followed a more arduous route from Cowichan Lake to Port San Juan. Subsequently, Brown and a few others went from Comox to Alberni via Comox Lake and Great Central Lake; another group had the harder task of journeying from Nanaimo to Alberni via the Nanaimo Lakes. The expedition lasted from June 7 to October 21, 1864 and covered an estimated 1,200 miles. The most celebrated achievement of the expedition was its discovery in July of gold on a river that the explorers named after Peter Leech, the second in command. Ironically, this find, which led to the establishment of Leechtown, was made when Brown had briefly left the party and returned to Victoria in order to clarify his relationship with the organizing committee. Brown himself valued more highly the discovery of coal on a river near Comox that was named after him. Although the discovery proved of no immediate commercial value, it was an early indication of coal in the region. Brown's Scottish sponsors continued to be dissatisfied with his dispatches of seeds, and they did not grant his request that his three year contract be renewed. Prior to its termination, Brown travelled in Washington Territory, Oregon, the Queen Charlotte Islands, and northern Vancouver Island. On August 2, 1866, when he was about to leave Vancouver Island, the Daily British Colonist and Victoria Chronicle described him as "a valuable man, who has done more towards exploring its unknown regions, unfolding its natural resources, and drawing attention to the latent wealth of the Island, than any other man in it." Brown's writings on the northwest coast are diverse. Vancouver Island; exploration, 1864 (Victoria, [1865]), a twenty-seven page official report outlining the expedition's route and fixing place-names, was followed in 1869 by "Memoir on the geography of the interior of Vancouver Island," a work which appeared only in German and for which Brown was awarded a doctorate by the University of Rostock (German Democratic Republic) in 1870. Brown had planned to write in addition a popular account of the expedition, illustrated with drawings made by its artist, Frederick Whymper, but he found the market glutted by other accounts of exploration. He published articles ranging from reports on the botany, ornithology, and geology of the area he explored to sketches of life in colonial society. Excellent Copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Washington. April 17, 1865. - 3pp. Folded quarto sheet. Central vertical fold and two horizontal folds. Small, closed tears at edges of the horizontal folds. A couple of small, very light fox marks. Very good. In a half morocco box. President Lincoln was assassinated on April 15, 1865; his body lay in state in the White House on April 18, and the funeral service took place around noon on the 19th. After the funeral itself, the official procession, the central act in the public mourning of the President's death, accompanied Lincoln's body from the White House to the Capitol. This program, issued by the War Department, outlines the order of the procession, listing the civilian, military, and political attendees in order of appearance. The hearse is represented by a rectangle outline of stars. The procession left the White House about two o'clock in the afternoon, marching down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol. The first three divisions were the military escort, representing all the elements of the Army and Navy. After them came the attending clergy and Lincoln's attending physicians, followed by the casket itself, the only wheeled vehicle in the procession, with the pall bearers to each side. Twelve Congressmen, General Grant and Admiral Farragut as heads of the Army and Navy, with two subordinates each, and Lincoln's family and delegates from Illinois and Kentucky followed the casket. Next came government officials, ambassadors, and state officials; representatives of various organizations, delegations from colleges, lawyers, doctors, and the press; the final group is listed here as "Citizens and Strangers." Directions are given for the assembly of the procession, which ended at the Capitol, where Lincoln's body again lay in state from the afternoon of the 19th until the morning of the 21st, when it was placed on the funeral train which took it back to Springfield. An important piece of Lincoln ephemera, commemorating one of the most tragic events in our nation's history.

        An Oversized Photo of General Grant Taken after Lincoln's Assassination

      Philadelphia, PA 1865 - Photograph. By Frederick Gutekunst. Philadelphia, Pa., [May 1865] 15 1/2 x 18 in., mounted on 20 x 24 in. board. Likely dated "October 1865" [perhaps the date of production] in light pencil on Gutekunst's label on verso. Blind stamp of Chicago Historical Society, and "Chicago Historical Society dupl" in pencil on verso. Ulysses S. Grant (1822-1885), born in Illinois as Hiram Ulysses Grant, was the leading Union general of the Civil War and the 18th President of the United States. He graduated from West Point in 1843 and served in the Mexican War, but at the start of the Civil War, he was a little-known grocer in Galena, Illinois. In June 1861, he was appointed colonel of the 21st Illinois and quickly rose to prominence in the western theater. His victories at Forts Henry and Donelson, Shiloh, Vicksburg, and Chattanooga earned him fame and steady promotion. In March 1864, he was named lieutenant general (the first since George Washington) and general-in-chief of all Union armies. On March 8, Grant went to Washington and met Lincoln for the first time. His command was not without controversy. After great numbers of dead at the battle of Shiloh, Lincoln responded to criticisms of Grant by saying, "I can't spare this man-he fights." To complaints of Grant's drinking, Lincoln quipped: "Tell me what brand of whiskey that Grant drinks. I would like to send a barrel of it to my other generals." Grant remained in the Eastern Theater to take on Robert E. Lee. After the difficult Overland Campaign, the Siege of Petersburg, and the climactic Appomattox Campaign, Grant forced Lee to surrender at Appomattox on April 9, 1865. He was commanding general of the U.S. Army after the war, and was elected as a Republican to the presidency in 1868 and 1872.

      New York: Francis & Loutrel, Printers, 45 Maiden Lane, February, 1865. First edition of Silliman's Second Report on oil in California. 8vo. Large folding map of the "OJAI Ranch in Santa Barbara County ... Property of The California Petroleum Company," and one folding chart. iii, [1], 24 pp. Printed wrappers. Waterstained, maps creased, with one small tear. Streeter 2903; Giddens p. 167; Sabin 81051; Cowan 1933, p. 588 (in entry for 1864 issue: "Another report was made in 1865") . Silliman's reports on the future of California oil precipitated the nation's first real debate over the ethics of scientific consulting. Silliman's previous analysis of seep oil in Pennsylvania had launched an entire industry; now, as a consultant for the California Petroleum Company, Silliman painted a rosy picture of the future of petroleum in the Santa Barbara region, raising the hopes of speculators who already excited by the recent boom in Pennsylvania. State Geologist Josiah Dwight Whitney thought that Silliman's fee ($45,000) from the oil companies was prima facie evidence of fraud, and characterized Silliman himself as a mercenary and a disgrace to science. When it was determined that the seep oil samples Silliman had been testing were laced with kerosene from Pennsylvania, stock prices fell dramatically

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1865. 2 volumes. First edition, with the three page Postscript by Dickens at the end of Volume II. With 40 engraved plates by Marcus Stone. 8vo, bound in contemporary full tan calf, the boards ruled in gilt with small floral corner pieces, the spines with wide gilt tooled bands handsomely ruled in gilt and blind, volume numbers in gilt in one compartment, black morocco labels lettered and ruled in gilt in another, end-papers and page edges handsomely marbled. xi, 320; viii, 309 pp. Quite a handsome set, the text firm and fresh with only minor light occasional foxing, far less then is typical. The bindings are very attractive and well preserved with just a touch of rubbing to the boards and edges. A lovely copy. AN EXTREMELY APPEALING SET IN A VERY HANDSOME FULL CALF CONTEMPORARY BINDINGS. This was the second to last book that Dickens would write, and the last one that he would actually finish. The years shortly before the publication of OUR MUTUAL FRIEND were fraught with domestic sorrow that would lead to his eventual decline. He separated from his wife Catherine in 1858 after his admiration for the young actress Ellen Ternan strained his already deteriorating marriage. He further had to defend himself against scandal and protest his innocence when wagging tongues of gossip linked his name to his sister-in-law Georgina&#146;s who had served as his housekeeper for many years. He threw his restless energy into increased productivity and public readings of his work, both of which were physically and emotionally exhausting. He suffered from recurrent illnesses during the creation of OUR MUTUAL FRIEND, but nonetheless managed to maintain the level of genius in his prose that had pervaded his previous works. He died unexpectedly only five years later, while he was writing THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD.<br> He had, with this novel, &#147;...for the first time given serious consideraiton to the theme of unrequited love. In earlier books it may have been secret or ill-timed, but there was always and equilibrium in which both parties seem to accept that they loved or can be loved; and that, when eventually they declare their love, it is not rejected.&#148; But &#147;there is torture in love, and despair, and madness. There is some necessary connection between courtship and is possible to trace the strange curve of Dickens&#146; temperment exploring extremity in art if not necessarily life.&#148; (Ackroyd, 955)<br> Like most of Dickens&#146; work, OUR MUTUAL FRIEND was published in monthly serial parts, the first in May of 1864 and the last in November of 1865. This two-volume set was released almost immediately after the issue of the final episode. An extremely well-preserved set of the first edition of one of Dickens&#146; final efforts.

Pg.4692 complessive. Buone legature in mz.pelle rossa, con titoli in oro e fregi in oro e nero ai dorsi. Timbri di biblioteca estinta. Monumentale Opera, assai rara e di notevole interesse. Si tratta di una pregevole riedizione del testo composto nel 1680 da Roberto Cameracensis, nome latinizzato di Robert di Cambrai, che studiò le fonti patristiche e compose la sua "Aurifodina" sulla scia di due analoghi testi pubblicati nel medesimo secolo, l'"Aurifodina artium et scientiarum omnium" di Jeremias Drexel (1641), e l'"Aurifodina Patrum Theologica" (1656). L'Autore raccoglie in maniera minuziosa migliaia di sentenze e motti dei padri della Chiesa e degli scrittori antichi, riordinandoli in un organico criterio alfabetico. Di ogni sentenza viene riportata la fonte e la versione francese. Il curatore, l'Abate Rouquette, sottolinea nella Prefazione come "l'"Aurifodina" vient reprendre sa place naturelle à côté de la "Somme" de Saint Thomas d'Aquin, des "Trésors" de Corneius a Lapide, des "Acta Sanctorum" et de beaucoup d'autres dont elle est à la fois le complément et l'abrégé".

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott & Co., 1865. - Tall 8vo., (10 x 6 4/8 inches). Hand-coloured lithographed frontispiece and 49 plates. Modern half red morocco, gilt by Zaehnsdorf, all edges gilt. Provenance: with the engraved armorial bookplate of Frederick Fermor-Hesketh, second baron Hesketh (1916-1955), on the front paste-down, his sale December 15th, 1999, lot 305. Second edition in book form, first published in parts between July 1853 and June 1855 (with a title-page issued in 1856), was intended to complement the octavo edition of Audubon's celebrated work "The Birds of America, from Drawings Made in the United States and their Territories". The annexation of Texas and the addition of California and New Mexico to the United States had led to increased exploration and research in the South West. "At first the Audubons were receptive.however, Cassin wanted shared credit on the title page and a free hand in correcting the errors of nomenclature of the elder Audubon, a touchy point with the sons. In the end, Cassin went on his own, although clearly following the Audubon format and also using J.T. Bowen as lithographer" (Reese).
