        The fishes of Malabar.

      . London, Bernard Quaritch, 1865. Large 4to (32.5 x 25.5 cm). xxxii, 293 pp., 20 engraved plates. Later green cloth. Spine with black morocco label and gilt lines and title.* A very rare book by the British ichthyologist and Inspector-General of Fisheries in India, Francis Day (1829-1889) on the fish fauna of southwestern India, from Goa to the southern tip of the peninsula. He is best known for writing the fish-section of the Fauna of British India, but this earlier work is perhaps more important. This is the very rare original, however, the plain edition. The finely engraved plates and text figures are by the author. At least one species, Microphis bleekeri, is new. Subscribers, with the number of copies ordered split into coloured and plain copies, are listed in the front. In all, no more than 28 coloured copies, and 19 plain copies are listed, the latter mainly ordered by bookshops and governmental organizations. Uncut. A very good clean copy.

        [ARCHIVE OF FIFTY-ONE DOCUMENTS, PRIMARILY MANUSCRIPT, DEALING WITH LIFE AT FORT JEFFERSON PRISON, INCLUDING CONTENT ON THE CONSPIRATORS BEHIND LINCOLN'S ASSASSINATION]

      Fort Jefferson, Fl. 1865.. Fort Jefferson, Fl. 1865.. Fifty-one documents. Generally very good or better. In a cloth clamshell case. After the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the discovery of the massive conspiracy, Mary Surratt, George Atzerodt, David Herrold, and Lewis Powell were tried and hanged on July 7, 1865. Four more conspirators were found guilty and sentenced to terms at the military prison in Fort Jefferson, Florida. Situated in the desolate Dry Tortugas off the Florida Keys, Fort Jefferson was a place for hard time and had been used to house federal deserters and mutineers during the Civil War. The four conspirators, Samuel Arnold, Michael O'Laughlen, Edward Spangler, and most famously, Dr. Samuel Mudd, joined the federal riff raff there in July 1865, sentenced to life. With the war ended and the demobilization of troops in full swing in September 1865, command at Fort Jefferson was transferred from the 161st New York Infantry to the 82nd U.S. Colored Infantry. Incensed, despondent, opportunistic, afraid of how he would be treated by "colored" soldiers, Mudd attempted to stow away aboard the transport Thomas A. Scott and escape. He was quickly discovered and he, Arnold, O'Laughlen, Spangler, and one other man were confined for three months in a "dungeon," let out six days a week in chains for labor in the yard. Although Arnold and O'Laughlen had both attempted to drop out of the conspiracy, they were swept up after the assassination for their complicity. All four were sentenced to life in prison. O'Laughlen died of yellow fever in 1867, during the epidemic in which Mudd filled in for the prison doctor who also succumbed, and Andrew Johnson pardoned Mudd, Arnold, and Spangler in 1869. Almost half of this collection of over fifty items assembled by Capt. William Prentice of the 161st New York Infantry, relates to the period that he was stationed at Fort Jefferson, overseeing the military prison that housed the Lincoln conspirators. Among these documents are the comparatively mundane records of accounts necessary to keep a military outfit running efficiently, including twenty-one returns, receipts, or invoices for supplies or stores. Most of these are printed forms and relatively routine, but one (Special orders 8) is an unusual receipt from a lieutenant for turning in the regimental colors; and one return that lists twenty men from Co. F, 161th NY, with an indication that five would transfer into another company and one would remain south after mustering out. One receipt is signed by Henry A. Morris, Capt. 82nd US Colored Troops and Provost Marshall for stores issued to that regiment (clothing, straw hats, iron pots, account books). Two document on transfer of responsibility from the 161st NY to the 82nd USCT. Not all is routine, however. Amid the apparently common run of returns and receipts is a remarkable document signed (with an x) by each prisoner held at Fort Jefferson on August 31, 1865, for the issue of clothing and blankets. In many cases the prisoners, presumably deserters or mutineers, are listed with their regiment indicated (e.g. the 69th, 122nd, 140th, and 157th NY Infantry, 26 NY Battery; 1st U.S. Infantry, and several from 6th U.S. Heavy Artillery). A few are noted as "Colored." Within this list, however, are the names of the four men convicted of conspiring to kill Abraham Lincoln: Edward Spangler, Michael O'Laughlen, Samuel Mudd, and Samuel Arnold. Spangler, Arnold, and O'Laughlen are listed in one document together, suggesting all were together at the time. The conspirators each received a pair of pants, shoes, a blanket, and two shirts. A second return, dated September 1865, lists Arnold, but not the other conspirators for reasons that remain unclear. Adding to this exceptionally rare record is a photograph of a spectacular and important letter from conspirator Samuel B. Arnold (signed Samuel B. A.) addressed to Prentice, Nov. 16, 1865. Having been confined in the dungeon, Arnold asked Prentice for a letter testifying to his good behavior while under Prentice's keep, presumably to show to the new command. He wrote: "It is impossible to give you any items of the place at present writing, as I know nothing, only permitted to look upon the bare wall and chilly floor of our prison cell, the slow and measured tread of the sentry as he walks his beat both day and night before our quarters, now intercourse with outside - all, all is monotonous. This change was inaugurated upon the 82nd U.S. C. Troops taken command and like orders been handed down to present command, the 5th U.S. H. Artillery, which of course, must be adhered to on their part. I have been thus far unable to ascertain from whence the order emanated, so many versions having been tendered. Its origin tho' seems to come from Mudd's attempted escape. If such be the case, I can't see the justice of punishing me for his offence....I feel that the present Regt, will investigate the matter and treat us as we all by our deportment are deserving of, for if good conduct brings present suffering, bad certainly would produce death. I suffered my present imprisonment through the act of others, for I had not even knowledge though, and in like manner am again under the strict surveillance through the offence of another....Accept the best wishes from the heart of one, tho' branded with shame, that contains within its inmost core, feelings of honor, purity, and truth, equal to any beating heart." The documents that date from Prentice's military career prior to Fort Jefferson include eighteen returns, receipts, or invoices for supplies and stores, including a return of supplies lost in an accident involving the steamer John H. Dickey; an unusual letter trying to account for stores lost relative to men who had died or transferred from the regiment while detached; two documents relating to Prentice's mustering in, and a special order relieving Prentice of duty and ordering him to "turn over all papers Books and Blanks belonging to his Office to Capt. Jos.. H. Meredith, 82nd U.S.C.I. who will assume the duties of Assist Inspector Genl." There are three fine items relating to Prentice's commissioning, including his mustering in roll after promotion from lieutenant to captain, September 1863; Special Order 44 appointing Prentice Provost Marshall at Fort Jefferson, July 31, 1865; and his Captain's commission on vellum, signed by Gov. Horatio Seymour, 1863. Demonstrating that bureaucracies never die, nor do they entirely reason, one of the returns is of particular note: a statement of equipment lost at the Battle of Sabine Cross Roads, April 30, 1864. Prentice explained: "...while the Regt was in Bivouac at Pleasant Hill, La., the enemy began skirmishing along our while line, preparatory to the general engagement, which came on later in the day. I was ordered...to take my company and pull down a Barricade in our front which might be of advantage to the enemy. I then to deploy them as skirmishers in a piece of timber on our Right. By his order all our Baggage was left in camp. While we were thus employed, the engagement became general, the Regt was sent to the Front, and by order of Brig. Gen. Emory...our Baggage was placed upon a wagon & during the Retreat of the following night was lost." Rare enough in itself as a record of activity in a federal prison for deserters, the Prentice collection contains some of the rarest of all Civil War items: materials relating directly to the Lincoln assassination and to the conspirators who fomented it.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Burnbank Road, Hamilton, 8. VI. 1865.. 8vo. 3 pp. on double leaf. Together with an album with letters to Foster by Henry Cole and others.. The letter is addressed to Peter Le Neve Foster, Secretary to the Society of Arts, with whom Livingstone corresponded a good deal during this period, asking him to supply samples which give an idea of the papers for the Indian civil service examinations: "[...] Neither of my boys are fit as yet for it but I would like to shew them what is expected one of them got prizes for Geography German French & Latin yesterday and seems likely to go on in these studies - Another got a prize for drawing - I wish to set them to aim high [...]". - Livingstone worries about the future of his surviving sond, while preparing for his final departure for Africa that August. He had been invited to return to Africa by the Royal Geographic Society that January, in order finally to sort out the problem of the Nile. He wrote this letter when staying with his long ailing and bedridden mother. Soon afterwards, thinking that she was rallying, he dashed down to Oxford in order to deliver a lecture, where he received a telegram announcing her death on the eighteenth. He and his wife Mary, who had died in Africa in 1862, had three sons, Robert Moffat Livingstone (1846-64), Thomas Steele Livingstone (1849-76) and William Oswell Livingstone (1851-92). Robert, the eldest, had died of his wounds the previous December, while fighting on the Union side in the American Civil War under the name Rupert Vincent so as not to bring discredit to his father, who was wont to accuse him of trading off his name. In Tim Jeal's opinion, 'Robert's life is really the story of Livingstone's failure as a parent' (Livingstone, Pimlico edition, p. 281). Oswell, the youngest, fell out of favour when in 1872, as a member of the RGS relief expedition that had been upstaged by Stanley, he failed to join his father but instead recommended him to return home, causing his father to dub him 'as poor a specimen of a son as Africa ever produced'. Tom, the middle and eldest surviving son, stayed the course and was to act as his father's chief executor; although it was to be his sister Agnes, Livingstone's doted-upon daughter, who became chief guardian of his reputation.

      Croisset, [Jan. 4, 1865].. Large 8vo. 1 p.. To Alfred Nion, Flaubert writes for news of his "fairy" play, Le Chateau Des Coeurs; desiring to demonstrate that this old form can be profitably revived, he is nevertheless pessimistic about the sucess of his play: "Eh bien, et la Feerie, cher ami? Je crois que contrairement au proverbe 'pas de nouvelles, bonnes nouvelles' la chose est completement flambee? Mon seuil en est tout fait. J'avais cependant ete bien aise de gagner quelques portraits de l'empereur sur metal, avec cette folichonnerie [ ] on peut se servir d'un cadre use [pour] rajeunir un vieux genre. Tu serais bien gentil de me dire ce que ton patron en a pense". - Dated in the hand of Caroline Commanville, his literary executor; light creasing along old folds.

        De Medusa in de Wateren van Japan, in 1863 en 1864.

      1865. s'Gravenhage, de gebroeders van Cleef, 1865. 8vo (220 x 135mm). pp. xii, (2), 150, with 5 folded coloured maps. Contemporary half red calf, gilt lettering on spine, sides gilt pictorial cloth, gilt edges (small repair to foot of spine). Rare first edition. A very interesting association copy with a warm and highly charming dedication from the author to his son: "Aan Leonard Willem de Casembroot van zynen hem hartelijk liefhebbenden vader, s'Hage 1865, 29 Aug." as well as a later dated note of 20 March 1897 that the book should now be kept for Robert's son on free endpaper, visiting-card of F. de Casembroot, Vice-Admiral e.r. Mauritskade 4, inserted, as well as a Japanese woocut map on Japanese paper, with English text, similar but not identical to the last map in the book, as well as newspaper cuttings dated 20 october 1865 describing the fighting of the 'Medusa' in Japan, also newspaper cuttings of 16 april 1895 concerning the death of F. de Casembroot. "On 11 July 1863 the Dutch corvette 'Medusa', commanded by Lieutenant Francois Casembroot and on its way to Yokohama, was attacked as it passed through the Straits of Shimonoseki at the entrance of the Inland Sea. It was not the first time that the local daimyo of Nagato had fired on foreign shipping, but ... until then there had been no casualties. This time, as a result of prolonged firing of cannons, during which the 'Medusa' was struck no less than twenty times, four members of her crew were killed and a further five injured. The 'Medusa' put up a brave fight, and managed to sail through the straits and on to her destinantion. This incident led to retaliative measures the following year by Britain, France, the Netherlands, and the United States, which succeeded in quelling the daimyo's ambition and securing a safe passage for foreign shipping through this important stretch of water. Casembroot's own account of the incident and the measures taken to avenge the loss of Dutch lives was published on his return home in 1865. It may be taken as a fair sign of the indignation felt by the Dutch reading public concerning this incident that this slim book went into a second printing within the year of its first publication" (Nipponalia II, VII). The second edition has one frontispiece and only 2 maps. Nipponalia II, VII (second edition); Cordier 579 (second edition); Tiele 234..

        SPEECHES AND ADDRESSES. CHIEFLY ON THE SUBJECT OF BRITISH AMERICAN UNION. Presentation Copy

      London: Chapman And Hall, 1865 First Edition Inscribed by Thomas D'Arcy McGee. An excellent copy in the original brown embossed cloth covered boards, gilt stamped on the spine. A vital work collecting McGee's major speeches in The Canadian Parliament and in various public forums concerning an evolving new Nationality. McGee's eloquent advocacy did more than anything else to create the psychological basis for union. This rare and early inscription, dated 1866, the year before Confederation and two years before McGee's assassination for his condemnation of the Irish-American Fenians, who invaded Canada, reads: 'To George Murray Esq./B.A. Oxon. / With the good wishes of the present and all other / Seasons, from Thos. D'arcy McGee / New Years Day / 1866'. Murray was a scholar, educator, journalist and litterateur who emigrated to Canada in 1859, a member of the Royal Society Of Canada, author of, Verses And Visions and for a period of ten-years, commencing in 1882, editor of the literary department of the Montreal Star, the country's most important newspaper at the time. The LOC has two copies, one with a poorly reproduced portrait frontis. & one without. As this was the author's copy to present, it may precede the issue with the portrait. A very good example of an important, uncommon book with a rare presentation.. . Signed by Author. First Edition.

        Football Kerchief.

      Ca 1865, Rhode Island: - One of the handkerchiefs in the "Washington" line printed by S. H. Greene & Sons, which became nationally known. The image centers on three football players with a round ball and goal behind them. On either side of the central image four views- 1. The Kick Off. 2. field maintenance tools (roller, rake, etc) 3. the clubhouse and 4. The Flags (a player setting out the field flags). The fact that the kerchief was produced in the 1860s makes it very interesting, as at that time all three ball sports, American football, soccer and rugby were in their infancy and there was no clear distinction between the three sports. There is some fading to the right otherwise very good condition.Founded in 1828 by Simon H. Greene and Edward Pike, S. H. Greene & Sons became one of the preeminent textile print works in the state of Rhode Island. In the late 1870s, under the guidance of the Scot Robert Reoch, the print works increased its output of goods from 8,000 to 35,000, becoming one of the most successful and steadily running print works in the country. 12 x 13" white cotton printed in red and black. The edges are stitched and feature red and brown decoration. With "Washington. S. H. Greene & Sons" at the lower left corner. Slightly faded, a little more so on the right edge, o/w very good condition.

        Topographical Map of the City of New York Showing Original Water Courses and Made Land

      New York: Ferd. Mayer & Co. Lithographers, 1865. New York: Ferd. Mayer & Co. Lithographers, 1865. unbound. very good. Reproduction map. Color iris print of 1865 edition. Image measures 18" x 63.5". Vielé's two-panel "water map," typically referred to as the "Vielé Map," depicts the original waterways of Manhattan, both above and below ground. The map shows all of the city's original watercourses, along with natural springs, marshes, and meadowlands. A commissioner's grid plan is superimposed on top. A civil engineer, Vielé first published his map in 1865 to expose how landfills and other obstructions of natural drainage were negatively influencing the sanitation and hygiene of the city. He believed that the epidemics of cholera, malaria, and other diseases rampant in New York bred in waterways which persisted beneath the ground. The overlaid levels of his map - natural waterways and man-made streets - expose how incongruous the city's plan was with its underlying topography. He proposed that the city construct future street and sewage systems in accordance with the island's watercourses, which he was convinced would greatly improve the city's health. Today, the Vielé Map is a standard reference for contractors and architects, who use it to locate former riverbeds that could flood foundations; in fact, the New York Times has referred to it as "the bible for many of the city's structural engineers." Egbert L. Vielé (1825-1902) served in the Civil War before becoming a civil engineer and mapmaker, becoming the chief engineer of Central Park and developing plans for the first subway system.

The Notes, in the form of footnotes, are scattered throughout the volume and are short and numerous. Page 7 contains a dedication: 'This Narrative is respectfully dedicated to Florence Nightingale.' "In dedicating this short account of efforts made to improve the character of professional nursing and provide for the better tendence of the sick to one whom, as their beloved chief, all engaged in similar endeavour look for encouragement and guidance, the compiler had two objects in view. First, to call attention to the nature of the plans which, carried out under her direction and advice, have been attended with so much success in Liverpool, and to recommend others to adopt and improve them.Secondly, to express the warm gratitude which we feel, not only as an Englishman but as an inhabitant of Liverpool for those especial benefits which his native town has derived from her aid and counsel, in addition to those which it shares with the country at large." * The Liverpool Training School and Home for Nurses was founded by William Rathbone in 1862, after consultation with Miss Nightingale. This was the beginning of a long and fruitful association which was to result in the organization and development of district nursing and workhouse infirmary nursing, both of which were first tried out in Liverpool, and later extended to other parts of the country." Bishop and Goldie pp.27-8. The aim of the Liverpool Training School was to provide better nursing training and a phalanx of nurses to work in both hospitals and the local community, with an emphasis on tending the poor in their own homes. Nightingale noted in her introduction that before the scheme nurses rarely made house-calls, but "I suppose everyone will agree with me that every sick man (or woman) is better at home, if only he (or she) could have the same medical treatment and nursing there that he (or she) would have in a hospital." WITH: loosely inserted: A letter printed on the first side of folded leaf: "Sir, Acting with the advice of Miss Nightingale, I wish to bring under the notice of those like yourself, whose position infers, or is likely to lead to, an interest in the subject, an organization which has proved most useful in Liverpool, and may in a modified form prove equally so in your district.I therefore ask your acceptance of the accompanying account, and shall be obliged if, after perusal, you will kindly show the pamphlet to any likely to be interested in its subject. I am Sir, Yours respectfully, the compiler, and Hon. Sec. of the Society in Liverpool." Liverpool, December, 1865."

La seconde moitié de l'ouvrage, qui constitue ici le second volume, comprend sous forme d'appendice diverses notes historiques sur les fêtes vénitiennes, les courtisanes et les religieuses, une jolie "guirlande poétique des femmes blondes", ainsi que les recettes extraites des ouvrages du temps pour avoir des cheveux blonds.
