      Baltimore: Lith. & Print by E. Sachse & Co., 1865.. Lithograph, featuring twelve views of southern prisons and related. Sheet size: 24 x 35 3/4. Very good. A rare lithograph showing views of several Confederate prison camps in the South, used to hold Union officers during the Civil War. The lithograph contains twelve images of at least six different Confederate camps in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. While Andersonville Prison in Georgia is well known as the largest and most brutal of the Confederate prison camps, this important lithograph shows the conditions and structures at several lesser known southern prisons, and thereby provides valuable information. One of the two central images is a view of the crowded "Asylum Camp" in Columbia, South Carolina. The image shows a pair of two-story buildings in the background, with dozens of tents crowded into an open space in the foreground. The entire camp is surrounded by a fence. Many of the tents have their own small fireplace, and men are shown chopping wood, hanging clothing, preparing food, carrying water, and milling about the yard. There are two other images of Camp Asylum: one showing men taking wood from a large pile, the other a view of the sutler's tent at the camp, showing a large number of men proceeding into a tent to receive supplies. The other central image is of Camp Sorghum in Columbia, South Carolina. Small cabins and tents are shown in a large cleared field patrolled by armed guards. Another small view shows the hospital at the camp, with many wounded men depicted. Views of other prisons show the jail in Columbia, South Carolina; the jail and workhouse in Charleston, S.C. (mostly tents); Camp Oglethorpe in Macon, Georgia (showing several small cabins); and rustic Camp Exchange in Charlotte, North Carolina, showing a number of armed guards patrolling a small group of tents and a crudely built two- story building. There are also views of a performance by "Chandler's String Band", mail delivery (showing scores of men crowded around a building), and an image of long lines of men passing clothing that have apparently just been delivered by a small train. Lithographer and printer Edward Sachse was located in Baltimore, and was therefore well-positioned to produce views and prints for southern and northern markets before and during the Civil War. In 1862 he published a portrait of Union General Ambrose Burnside, and after the war Sachse published prints of the grave of Stonewall Jackson, and of Robert E. Lee in his study (the latter drawn by Adalbert Volck). Sachse also published views of the Virginia Military Institute, Fort McHenry, and a print of the famous clash between the Monitor and the Merrimac. This print is included in neither Neely & Holzer's THE UNION IMAGE nor in their THE CONFEDERATE IMAGE, and it is not mentioned by Peters. OCLC locates only two copies of this series of views of Confederate prisons, at the Library of Michigan and at the Boston Athenaeum. Rare. OCLC 136954063, 191908999. PETERS, AMERICA ON STONE, pp.348-49 (ref).

This copy has all the original parts wrappers and substantially complete advertisements and slips bound in at the rear of each volume, with the following first issue points. Part 1 front wrapper is in the first issue without the imprint at foot, as called for by Hatton & Cleaver; this copy also has the rare "Foreign Bank Notes" slip at the rear of Parts 19/20. Our Mutual Friend has more inserted adverts than any other Dickens novel in parts, so material is almost always lacking; this copy is substantially complete, with the following omissions and variations: Part 1, lacking 5 of the 10 advertisements (#2 of which also only 4pp rather than 8) from the rear, and lacking the rare "The Reader will understand" slip; Part 3, North British & Mercantile Insurance Co. advert at the rear on white paper rather than light green; Part 6 Cramer & Co advert at the rear 6pp rather than 8; Part 7, Thomson's Prize Medal Skirts lacking from the rear adverts; Part 9, Mrs S O Beeton's Announcements lacking from the rear adverts; Part 14, 6 titles rather than 5 listed on p.3 of Our Mutual Friend Advertiser, also lacking the rare "Economic Life Assurance Society" 4pp; Part 18, Mappin, Webb & Co leaf at the rear adverts printed on blue in stead of white or yellow paper; Part 19/20 lacking Mappin, Webb & Co leaf from rear adverts, and also the "Economic Life Assurance Society" 4pp. The copy does have a great many extra slips and advertisement leaves not listed by Hatton & Cleaver present, and also a duplicate of the "New Serial by Capt. Mayne Reid" in Part 10. A lovely copy, in excellent condition, presenting, with a signed contemporary binding and almost all the parts material, more of less the best of both worlds in Dickens collecting.

        Narrative of a Year's Journey Through Central and Eastern Arabia (1862-63)

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1865.. 2 volumes octavo (210 × 134 mm) Contemporary red half straight-grained morocco on marbled boards by Kerr & Richardson of Glasgow, title direct to the spine, narrow pinched bands bracketed with double gilt rules, similar rules to spine and corner edges, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, blue silk page-markers. Stipple-engraved medallic portrait frontispiece, large folding map with outline colour, and 4 engraved plans. A little rubbed, mainly at corners and joints, foxing front and back, folding map with a couple of neat, old repairs verso, overall a very good set, handsomely presented. First Editions. A Roman Catholic convert , Palgrave worked as a missionary in Syria, for some years with reasonable success "particularly in the town of Zahlah, making many converts and founding numerous schools. He became so accustomed to Arab society that he could pass as a native of the Middle East without difficulty. In the Druse attacks on Christians in 1860–61, Palgrave was nearly killed at the Damascus massacre" (ODNB), forcing him to return to Europe. With the permission of the Vatican, Palgrave became a French agent and was sent "to report on the Arabian kingdoms of Ha'il and Riyadh. For many years Arabia had remained closed to Europeans. Ha'il had been penetrated by Europeans only once; Riyadh, never. Disguised as a Syrian Christian physician named Selim Abu Mahmoud al-'Eis, Palgrave now undertook an adventurous journey across central Arabia, which he accomplished in 1862 and 1863, thereby becoming the first westerner to cross Arabia by an approximately diagonal route (from the north-west to the south-east). Travelling among the Wahabbis, he was in considerable danger, should he be detected as a European. Once, at Ha'il, he was recognized as having been seen at Damascus, and at Riyadh he was suspected and accused of being an English spy, but his skill at disguise, coupled with his presence of mind and good fortune, secured his safety. Palgrave returned to Europe in late 1863 and wrote Personal Narrative … a classic of Arabian travel literature …" He subsequently renounced both his Catholicism and his French allegiances, entering British diplomatic service. "Many who have written about Palgrave have assessed his accomplishments with reservations, sensing some measure of failure. He may indeed have dispersed his efforts while leaving his potential unrealized, but expectations for him were always unusually high. He earned a permanent place as a leading British explorer and scholar of the Middle East." Uncommon in the first edition, this a very handsome set with the armorial bookplates of James Campbell of Tullichewan to the front pastedowns.

      1865. In Three Volumes. London: Tinsley Brothers, 1865. Original salmon red cloth. First Edition of this early novel by Meredith --~one of the most profound Victorian studies of living death after sexual fall. Dahlia and Rhoda are the two flowerlike daughters of a dead, garden-loving mother. Beautiful, moral and naive, Dahlia goes to the city, is seduced by Edward Blancove, the worldling son of a banker, and when he deserts her, she evades her family. She is about to marry a ruffian when she is discovered by Rhoda&#39;s suitor. Morally strong but blindly unaware of the dangers of supposedly correct behavior, Rhoda is willing to see Dahlia married off after her fall because it will make her respectable again. Only very slowly does Rhoda realize that acts like marrying off are what constitute immorality. Dahlia dies to life... She maddens, unsuccessfully attempts suicide, and then succumbs to tedium vitae... Dahlia dies uttering the words "Help poor girls" [in the 1886 second edition, revised by Meredith]. [Gates]~Meredith did not make much money in his arrangement with the publisher Tinsley, but felt he had to get it published:~To publish a novel was of vital importance to him at this stage in his career; he had just married [a second time], was in debt, and no doubt had to demonstrate that he could make a living by his writing alone... RHODA FLEMING, though conceived in 1863, was written hurriedly during a prolonged honeymoon. [Collie]~Sadleir ranks RHODA FLEMING as the absolute scarcest -- number one -- of Meredith&#39;s fifteen works of fiction, and goes on to say that "Few Victorian fictions are more seldom seen than those numbered 1 to 4"; he attributes this scarcity, actually in his bibliography of Trollope, to the fact that this was the only Meredith book published by Tinsley.~This copy is in the secondary binding of blind-stamped salmon-red cloth, page edges trimmed, without the publisher&#39;s name at the foot of the spines; the fact that there was a secondary binding is indicative that the novel did not sell well, prompting the publisher to bind up remaining copies more cheaply. Condition is very good (spines rather faded, as usual with this color, minor rubbing at the extremities, foxing on the very first and last leaves, one Vol I gathering standing a little proud). Collie VI; Sadleir 1702 and pp 380-381; Carter (More Binding Variants) p. 26, this being his Binding "B". Provenance: loosely inserted is 1950 correspondence between the most-recent owner of this set and Myers & Co. of New Bond Street.

        Carte de visite portrait photograph of George Armstrong Custer, in Civil War uniform

      [New York: Printed by Anthony from the negative by Brady, ca. 1865]. (CUSTER, GEORGE ARMSTRONG) 3-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches. Half-length, seated in semi-profile. Very slight mottling to image . Superb image of the still-controversial Custer, the boy-general, gallant Union cavalry officer, ambitious, publicity hungry Indian fighter, and in many ways the U.S. soldier who epitomized the posture of the United States in its Westward Expansion until he himself was killed, with his command, at the Battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876. This photograph, taken by the famous Civil War photographer Mathew Brady, is one of the rarer Brady images of the legendary general. "Even now [1984], after a hundred years, his name alone will start an argument. More significant men of his time can be discussed without passion because they are inextricably woven into a tapestry of the past, but this hotspur refuses to die. He stands forever on that dusty Montana slope ." - Evan S. Connell, SON OF THE MORNING STAR

        On the movements and habits of climbing plants

      Longman, Green, Longman, Roberts & Green, London 1865 - Darwin, Charles (1809-84). On the movements and habits of climbing plants. In Journal of the Linnean Society 9, nos. 33 & 34 (1865): 1-118. Text wood-engravings. Whole number. 128pp. 224 x 144 mm. (uncut and unopened). Original blue-green printed wrappers, a bit chipped at extremities, very minor spotting. Very good copy. Preserved in a cloth folding box. First Edition, journal issue of Darwin?s book-length paper on climbing plants, containing the essence of his discoveries in this field. The book-form second edition published ten years later, by which his work on this subject is generally known, is actually a revision and enlargement of the above. Darwin found that climbing was the result of the bending in a revolving plane of the apex of a plant?s stem while it grows. He later studied the mechanism of bending and showed that it was due to a substance that comes down from the apex when acted upon by light. This research laid the foundation of the science of growth hormones in plants. The first printing of Darwin?s monograph appeared in three forms, all from the same setting of type: the double number of the Linnean Society Journal (as above), which was issued to the Fellows; a commercial offprint for sale to the public; and an offprint for the author. It made its first appearance between hard covers in 1875. Dictionary of Scientific Biography. Freeman 833. Norman 596. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Recherches Hydrauliques

      Paris - Denod, 1865 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Recherches Hydrauliques Recherches Experimentales sur l&#39;coulement de l&#39;Eau dans les Canaux Decouverts is a very scarceatlas with twenty-eight platesof tables and figures on experimentalhydraulic research on the flow of water in open channels. In French. Written byHenry Philibert Gaspard Darcy (1803- 1858) was a French engineer who made several important contributions to hydraulics. He was employed by theCorps of Bridges and Roads. In this role he built an impressive pressurised water distribution system in Dijon following the failure of attempts to supply adequate fresh water by drilling wells. The system carried water from Rosoir Spring 12. 7 km away through a covered aqueduct to reservoirs near the city, which then fed into a network of 28,000 meters of pressurised pipes delivering water to much of the city. The system was fully closed and pressurised by gravity, and thus required no filters or pumps. He was also involved in many other public works in and around Dijon, as well as in the politics of the Dijon city government. Continued by Henri-mile Bazin (1829 - 1917) was a French engineer specialising in hydraulic engineering. Condition: In a morocco binding. Externally, generally smart but with somewear to extremities and the odd slight mark to boards. Front joint starting with backstrip lifting slightly, front hinge strained. Internally, generally firmly bound. Bright and generally clean with only the odd handling mark to pages and marginally to plate XXI and a small crayon mark to front blank. Overall: VERY GOOD.
