        Our Mutual Friend

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1865 Illustrated by Marcus Stone. First edition, first printing, with all the issue points called for by Smith present, lacking the terminal publisher's advertisements. Finely bound in ¾ polished tan calf over marble boards, with five raised bands to the spine, spine compartments ruled in blind, spine bands stamped in gilt, contrasting red calf title labels with gilt lettering to the spine, boards ruled in blind, red speckled edges. About near fine, with wear to the extremities, rubbing to spine and hinges, Volume I bumped on the fore edge, a hint of light offsetting to the free endpapers, otherwise extremely bright and fresh interiors, without the usual toning to the illustrated plates. A tight, clean copy, free of any repairs or restoration. Smith I, 15. Originally published serially in 20 installations issued in 19 monthly parts from May 1864-November 1865, Our Mutual Friend is the last novel Dickens completed in his lifetime, leaving his final novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, incomplete. Our Mutual Friend remains popular among readers because of its compelling plot line, which examines the advantages and disadvantages of individual wealth. The story begins with John Harmon, the estranged son of a wealthy miser, who has inherited his father's money and, as a condition of his inheritance, arranged to marry Bella Wilfer. Instead of greeting his fortune, Harmon fakes his own death and watches from disguise as his father's fortune brings fortune and misfortune to various members of the community before revealing his true identity. In this classic novel, Dickens revisits many of the themes from his earlier works, including the corruptive power of money and the virtues of the hardworking poor.. Illus. by Stone, Marcus. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Dora

      Cheshire, England: . Cheshire, England. Full Morocco. Near Fine. Superb mid-nineteenth century amateur illuminated manuscript with original story told in blank verse. N.d., circa 1850s. With inscription dated 1865. Oblong, 24 by 30 cm. 22 leaves, with illumination, illustration and text only on recto, with exception of frontis ink drawing of Bradley Hall, where the story takes place, on the verso. The poem tells of a father who is thwarted in his wish to have his son marry his virtuous niece and of what happens when later the son dies of illness, leaving a child behind. The sentimental tone and spirit of the tale exemplifies well mid-Victorian piety. Yet while the blank verse carries echos of biblical readings, it must also be noted that it is a departure from the doggeril that was far more likely to come from the amateur pen. The calligraphy throughout is disciplined and arresting; the ornamentation is grounded mostly in the late Medieval style, with a few interpretative variants. Importantly, the illuminist never repeats himself, and there are even subtle variants employed in the lettering. Four leaves feature fuller original illustration, as opposed to being dominated by ornamental motives, and these illustrations have a naive charm that is of singular beauty. Bradley Hall is a half-timber quaint Elizabethan manor house resembling Shakespeare's house in Stratford. Blue morocco binding with gilt border, and title "Dora" spelled out in center. Edgewear to the binding. Otherwise, clean and tight.

        Cornelius Vanderbilt SIGNED 1865 Hudson River Railroad

      , 0001-01-01 00:00:00 0001-01-01 00:00:00. 1st Edition. Unknown Unknown. Good. (Autographed Documents & Letters) This is a Manuscript DS, signed C Vanderbilt. Eight lightly lined pages on four sheets, measuring 8 x 12-1/2 inches. June 12, 1865. A declaration of trust between Vanderbilt and John M. Tobin and The Hudson River Rail Road CO. Much of the lengthy text describes the boundaries of several tracts of land adjacent to Harlem River Rail Road property between Albany and Poughkeepsie, purchased by Vanderbilt and Tobin from several different parties. The final section of the text explains that Vanderbilt and Tobin were paid one dollar each by the HRR and the lands were conveyed to them to be held in trust for the use of the railroad. The document is signed on page 7 by Vanderbilt, Tobin and Edwin Quackenbush. After being primarily involved in shipping for years, Vanderbilt later became involved in railroads. Gaining control of the Hudson River Rail Road was his second major endeavor in this industry, after he took over its competitor, the New York and Harlem. The transactions documented here must have been part of Vanderbilt's master plan to control the Hudson Valley railroads and consolidate three inefficient operations into a single, well-run system. Vanderbilt took control of the third line, the New York Central, in 1867; by the early 1870s, he had accomplished his goal. The item comes with a signed document by William Conner for the city and county of New York, and the Clerk of the Supreme Court. The document is approving the signature of the Notary involved. Dated October 16, 1865. In fair to good condition, with soiling, tears, a few chips and small paper losses, and complete and partial separations at folds with scattered tape repairs. The signature itself is clean, fine, and unaffected by any faults.

        The History of the Jamaica Case: Being an Account? of the Rebellion of the Negroes in Jamaica? Second Edition, Enlarged and Corrected

      Large thick 8vo, original brick-red cloth, 691 pp. Ex library copywith a few signs of bookplate removal, libarry number on the base of the spine, some edgewear and normal aging; overall very good. This is the definitive study of the Morant Bay upriising in Jamaica in 1865, with details on the conditions that led up to the event. In October 1865 a couple of hundred blacks led by a Baptist preacher named Paul Bogle marched into Morant Bay to protest poor treatment from the planters, who were likely the former masters of these people. The situation deteriorated, and many homes were burned and some planters were killed, the British responded to the rebellion by hanging 400 blacks, including Paul Bogle. Edward Eyre, was governor of the island when these events took place, and this book is inscibed by his wife in 1901. This is a rare work, having come up only once aat auction in the past 25 years. Not listed in Work.

        Sketches of Australian Life and Scenery . Christmas on the Diggings, or the unwelcome visitor who came uninvited

      London: Messrs. Newbold & Co., circa, 1865. Hand-coloured lithograph, 170 x 295 mm (image size). Framed. Rare separately-issued view by ST Gill of Australian life. Plate No.8 from a series by S.T.Gill depicting a broad spectrum of early Australian life in Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania. Altogether twelve plates were published in this series, they are individually very scarce. Gill is well-known for his lively depictions and showing what a dangerous place the Australian outback remained nearly one hundred years after settlement. Gill's awareness of this is theatrically expressed through the lengthy and melodramatic caption at the base of the image. In this scene pandemonium erupts by the appearance of a 'venemous' snake as the family was about to sit down to Christmas lunch. Gill arrived in Australia with his family at the age of twenty-one in 1839 and established a studio in Adelaide in the following year. He joined Horrocks' expedition to the Spencer Gulf and produced a number of drawings which were raffled on his return. During the 1840s Gill produced a great number of drawings and lithographs of urban scenes and prominent members of the South Australian community, and in 1852 travelled to the goldfields, where his most important work was produced.

        Original photograph of Queen Salote Lupepau'u of Tonga, and a Samoan chief, taken during the cruise of HMS Curacoa

      Tonga and Samoa, 1865. Two albumen photographs, the first measuring 92 x 70 mm. and mounted on a card inscribed 'The Queen of Tongatabu Friendly Group' in an old cursive hand; the second measuring 91 x 65 mm. and likewise mounted; both photographs in excellent condition. Royal photographs from the Brenchley voyage. Rare albumen photograph of Queen Salote Lupepau'u of Tonga taken in 1865, together with another photograph of a Samoan chief dressed for war holding a club. Both photographs were taken during the cruise of HMS Curacoa, a British vessel touring the Pacific 'for the purpose of displaying the British flag in the different archipelagos of the Western Pacific'. Commanded by Commodore Sir William Wiseman, H.M. Curacoa visited Norfolk Island, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, the New Hebrides, the Solomons and New Caledonia. These albumen prints were later used as the basis for two separate wood engravings in a published narrative of the cruise titled Jottings During the Cruise of HMS Curacoa by J. L. Brenchley (Longmans 1873). Brenchley states that the Queen was unwell when the official party met with her husband King George Tupou I, but later sat for this portrait photograph. King George Tupou I ruled from 1845 to 1893 - he was baptised by Wesleyan missionaries and took the name Sia'osi (George) in honour of King George III. Upon consolidating the throne, he renounced all but his favourite wife who was baptised of Salote (Charlotte) in honour of the Queen of England. Brenchley comments on the king's reserve and dignity, and Queen Salote Lupepau'u here pictured was the grandmother of the future Queen Salote Tupou III, ruler of Tonga from 1918 to 1965.

        Early, perhaps first printing of Robert E. Lee?s General Order No. 9 ?One of the most famous documents written during the Civil War, displayed alongside a remarkable facsimile of the original handwritten order and a superb original signature of Lee

      Magnificently Framed Archive (28? X 27.5?) comprising:(1) Vintage Printed Document: General Order No. 9, signed in type ?R. E. LEE, General?, one page, 3.75? X 6?, April 10, 1865, printed on verso of a recycled partial Confederate commissary?s receipt with ?Lynchburg? printed at top. This printing is an unrecorded, hitherto unknown variant, and a possible expedient field printing. One slightly diagonal fold crosses over the ?r? in Northern and the ?p? in April, else fine condition.The text is hand-set letterpress, exhibiting a hurried quality, as there is a misspelled word, with a line of type that goes off horizontal, but with justified text. The receipt form and the dateline are the only immediate clues to the point of origin of this famous order, which may have been distributed for the information of officers and troops at Appomattox. The distinctly crude quality of the print suggests it could have been done on a field press, or, alternatively, hastily done local newsp
