Astra castra: Experiments and adventures in the atmosphere. xxiii, 530pp. 35 plates, including chromolithograph frontispiece, photographic print tipped to dedication page, text illustrations.

Frontispiece starting, minor insect damage to upper margin of title, light foxing, but very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed by the author on the front flyleaf: "Edmund Turner from his affecate brother Hatton-In lieu of many letters that would have been written during the years 1863-64 whilst he was travelling in India, Australia & New Zealand." Bookplate of Turnor's son, Christopher Turnor (1873-1940).First Edition. A vast and remarkable Victorian compendium of aeronautical literature from mythological times to the 1860s. Turnor focused primarily on ballooning and other lighter-than-air flight, although there are a few references to heavier-than-air flight attempts. The work contains 22 portraits of balloonists, and lists the names of the first 500 people to ascend in balloons, giving the dates and places of their first ascents and noting that only ten of them had been killed in ballooning accidents. Turnor presented this copy to his brother, Edmond Turnor (1838-1903), a Conservative Party politician who served in the House of Commons from 1868 to 1880. The copy was later in the library of Hatton Turnor's son, Christopher Turnor, the noted architect and social reformer.

        Autograph letter signed about injury of Brig. Gen. Williamm H. Morris at Spottsylvania

      New York, 1865. Hamilton, Frank Hastings (1813-86). Autograph Letter signed, dated Jan. 1, [18]65, signed by Hamilton in his capacity as the "Surg. in charge Officers of Vol. New York"; no addressee or recipient indicated. 1 sheet, 205 x 258 mm., folded to make 4 pages of which 2 contain Hamilton's letter and 2 are blank. Creased where folded, minor soiling. 64 Madison Ave., New York [N.Y.]. A very fine letter from the Medical Inspector of the Union Army, describing the condition of Brigadier General William H. Morris (1827-1900), who had suffered a gunshot wound in the leg during the past year. "Brig. Genl. Wm. H. Morris U.S.A. has been under my care in consequence of a gunshot wound of the leg, during the last four or five months. One of the wounds has not yet healed, and the limb remains swollen & painful. I attribute this delay in his recovery to an injury of a nerve. The General is not at present in a condition to resume the saddle, but he might perhaps without harm perform a moderate mount of labor on foot. There is a gradual but slow improvement in the condition of his limb, which furnishes a guarantee of his complete recovery at a period not very remote." Morris, a native of New York, began his service in the United States Army as a second lieutenant in the 2nd Infantry, but during the Civil War he advanced quickly to the rank of Brigadier-General, to which he was appointed on Nov. 29, 1862. He was present at a number of important battles, including Gettysburg and the Battle of the Wilderness, and was wounded at Spotsylvania Court House on May 9, 1864. It is undoubtedly this wound that forms the subject of Hamilton's letter, since Morris spent the next four months after the Spotsylvania Court House battle on sick leave in Washington, away from active fighting, before being mustered out of the army on August 24. Although the purpose of Hamilton's letter is not explicitly stated, it was very probably written either in connection with Morris's discharge from the army, or to establish Morris's eligibility for an army pension. Intriguing in itself, the letter takes on added significance in that it refers to an officer rather than an enlisted man. According to Paul E. Steiner's Medical History of a Civil War Regiment (pp. 50-54), the government did not regulate and oversee officers' health care as it did the care of enlisted men, so that the diseases and disabilities suffered by Union officers often went unreported, and what records there were tended to be scattered and incomplete. Hamilton's letter may therefore be the most detailed description extant of the wound suffered by Morris during one of the bloodiest engagements of the Civil War. Hamilton, one of the foremost American surgeons of his day, was appointed Medical Inspector of the Union Army by President Lincoln and the United States Senate in February 1863, and served in this post with distinction until June 1865. He was the author of the first complete book on fractures and dislocations in English (A Practical Treatise on Fractures and Dislocations, 1860; Garrison-Morton 4420) and numerous other surgical works, as well as editor of the massive Surgical History of the War of the Rebellion (1870-71). Kelly & Burrage. DAB re Morris & Hamilton.

        Attacking the Mail, Bushranging N. S. W. 1864

      Melbourne: Hamel & Ferguson, [1865]. Colour printed. Printed on thick wove paper. In excellent condition. 6 7/8 x 9 13/16 inches. 10 x 13 3/16 inches. A fascinating print depicting highway robbery in Australia. This dramatic confrontation comes from S. T. Gill's illustrations of life in mid-19th century Australia: "The Australian Sketchbook." It shows most probably the Ben Hall gang, consisting of Hall, John Gilbert and John Dunn, "bushrangers" who preyed on travelers journeying on the one road between Melbourne and Sydney. Ben Hall (1837-1865) ran a profitable and efficient operation, using stolen race horses (they can be seen on the hill in the background) and superior weaponry. Like many a well-known criminal, he was betrayed for the reward money and ambushed; and like many other infamous outlaws, his funeral was very well attended.

        A dictionary of the Hawaiian language, to which is appended an English- Hawaiian vocabulary and a chronological table of remarkable events.

      Henry M. Whitney, Honolulu 1865 - First edition thus, being a second and much expanded version of Andrews' earlier A Vocabulary of Words in the Hawaiian Language, Lahaina, 1836 which is the first dictionary printed in the Pacific; 8vo, pp. xvi, 559; text in double column; full contemporary sheep, worn, and with restoration at the extremities; good and sound.The Hawaiian press was first established in Honolulu in 1822 and later at Lahaina in 1834 by Lorrin Andrews, a missionary who claimed some experience in printing. In June of 1834 it was voted by the mission that Andrews prepare a vocabulary of the Hawaiian language. He drew upon a manuscript vocabulary of words collected by Elisha Loomis, one of the first colonizers of the islands under Hiram Bingham; and, a manuscript vocabulary of words was "arranged, it is believed, in part by Mr. Ely, at the request of the Mission, and finished by Mr. Bishop. A copy of this was received and transcribed by [Andrews] in the summer of 1829 . In using this manuscript, the same method was taken as with the vocabulary of Mr. Loomis. New words, new definitions of words before collected, increased the size of the book to a considerable extent" (compiler's Preface to the 1836 edition, reprinted herein). A further revised edition appeared in 1922. Vancil, p. 8; this edition not in Zaunmuller.

      [N.p. N.d.]. Two carved bas relief portraits, in ivory, framed, each approximately 3" in diameter. One highly polished and finished, the other slightly rough- hewn. Framed in black wood with gold mountings. Very good. Two ivory carvings featuring a bust of Benjamin Franklin, from the collection of noted collector Richard Townley Haines Halsey. Halsey (1865-1942) was a collector of American decorative arts, with a particular penchant for Benjamin Franklin. He was instrumental in the founding of the American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum, an active early member of the Grolier Club and Walpole Society, prolific author, and at the end of his life a research associate in the Franklin Papers at the Yale Library (Mr. Halsey died when he was hit by a car about a block from the offices of the Reese Company). Many of his Franklin pieces were exhibited in shows at the Met and elsewhere. A note on the back of one of the pieces reads, "This one [i.e., the rough-hewn carving] is not 100% completed but obviously by the same fine artist."

      [Fort Riley, Ks.]. May 27, 1865. - [3]pp. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines and minor soiling. Very good plus. An extremely rare regimental newspaper, printed on a field press in Ft. Riley, Kansas. The Second Colorado Cavalry, organized in 1863 and stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas, served also from Kansas City, Independence, Westport, Hickman's Mills, Pleasant Hill, and Harrisonville, Missouri. Its detachments engaged in almost constant fighting around central Missouri. Commanded by Colonel James Ford, the regiment was charged with protecting the Kansas citizens from guerillas. This issue of the SOLDIER'S LETTER, published just two weeks after President Lincoln's assassination, contains an ode and article on his death. The paper also notes Jefferson Davis' capture and attempts by "negro troops" to "massacre of rebel citizens of Memphis." The SOLDIER'S LETTER was published longer than most regimental newspapers, from August 1864 until November 1865. Both Confederate and Union armies produced various regimental newspapers which provide important perspectives into the lives of Civil War soldiers. Any issues are rare.

      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.

Contemporary full calf by John Bumpus, spines elaborately gilt in compartments with two tan morocco labels to each, sides bordered with a double rule and fleuron corner pieces gilt, gilt-rolled board edges and blind-rolled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. With all the original parts and advertisements at the rear of both volumes. 40 wood-engraved plates by Dalziel and W. T. Green after Marcus Stone. Spines and board edges very lightly rubbed, a few mild spots; excellent condition. First edition bound from parts of Dickens's last completed novel (May 1864- Nov 1865), the only one to be illustrated by Marcus Stone. 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.
