        Le Droit au vol .

      [Ch. Lahure for] J. Hetzel, [ 1865]., Paris - FIRST ISSUE WITH THE PREFACE BY GEORGE SAND, ONE OF THE FEW COPIES ON HOLLANDE; A PRESENTATION COPY, inscribed to Louis Grandeau French chemist and professor at Nancy University. Le Droit au vol is Nadar's important polemic advocating the development of heavier-than-air flight. Two years before, Nadar had commissioned and experimented with the balloon Géant, whose maiden flight had carried Jules Verne (among others) but whose alarming crash landing on a subsequent flight inspired Nadar to look towards aircraft other than balloons. He founded the Société d'encouragement de la navigation aérienne au moyen du plus lourd que l'air. The relationship between Dadar and Sand was longstanding: he had dedicated his collection Quand j'étais étudiant to her in 1856, and all the well-known images of her were taken by him. She was an enthusiastic supporter of his aerial endeavours. This is the third of three issues appearing in 1865: the first two have only Nadar's preface, while the third also contains an enthusiastic Preface by Sand. Though the publisher referred to these as distinct editions, it is more likely that they were simply re-issues of the same sheets with modified preliminaries. 8vo (165 × 115 mm), pp. [4], iii, [1], iii, [1], 115, [1]. Early quarter morocco (without the publisher's wrappers). Author's autograph inscription to half-title: 'A mon bon, brave et cher L. Grandeau, Nadar, Janvier 67'.

        Adventures among the Dyaks of Borneo.:

      London Hurst and Blackett 1865 - Frederick Boyle, 1841-1914, was a prominent traveller and newspaper correspondent who published a number of books on his travels in the second half of the nineteenth century. "Adventures among the Dyaks of Borneo," his first book, was written after a journey undertaken with his brother Arthur when he was only 22. Boyle travelled extensively in Sarawak in 1863. He provides an informed view of the personalities of members of the Government in the later years of James Brooke's reign, together with a comprehensive description of Dayak life at the time. This is one of the scarcest of the nineteenth century books on Sarawak. Bound in early twentieth century half calf, spine rubbed. Title and frontis lightly spotted. Inner hinges strained. Otherwise a very good copy.

        Projet de canal interocéanique de Nicaragua. Voyage d'étude manuscrit].

      1865 ca 1865 - Manuscrit in-4 en feuilles de 329 pp. à 28 lignes la page (saut de pagination 205/215) et 33 pp. à 46 lignes la page. Joint 1 carte (41 x 34 cm) : Amérique septentrionale dressée par Lorrain en 1833. Journal inédit du voyage sur le continent américain effectué par le marquis Henri de Tilly Blaru entre mai 1864 et juillet 1865 pour le compte de la Banque Suisse qui l'avait chargé de soutenir auprès des gouvernements du Nicaragua et du Guatemala, un projet de canal maritime interocéanique. Je vous ai déjà dit comment au mois de juillet 1863, j'avais été mis au courant des projets formés par la Banque Suisse pour la canalisation du fleuve San Juan et la jonction du canal de Nicaragua au Pacifique pour établir la communication maritime continue entre les deux mers. Félix Belly envoyé par la Banque en Amérique revenait alors de cette expédition (incipit). Précurseur de Ferdinand de Lesseps, Félix Belly projetait de percer l'isthme, non pas à Panama, mais en passant par le lac de Nicaragua, suivant un plan étudié par Napoléon III, pendant sa captivité au fort de Ham. Avec l'aide de financiers, il fonda plusieurs compagnies et signa avec les gouvernements de Nicaragua et de Costa-Rica, des traités avantageux. Il entreprit plusieurs sondages, leva des plans mais deux révolutions successives dans ces deux pays, renversèrent son oeuvre. Le président avec lequel il avait signé fut fusillé, et il dut revenir en Europe, sans espoir de pouvoir réaliser son gigantesque projet (Percement de l'isthme de Panama par le canal de Nicaragua. Exposé de la question - 1858). L'historique des opérations et implications financières du projet trans-américain souvent étudié au XIXe siècle sont ainsi exposés par le marquis de Tilly en préambule à sa relation. Il suit de là que rien n'était achevé lorsque je fus chargé de régulariser toutes ces opérations. Oscar du Teil semblait m'indiquer sans me connaître, et comme personne ne voulait courir les chances d'une si lointaine expédition, toutes les raisons tant du côté de la Banque pour me charger de cette mission que du mien pour l'accepter se trouvèrent réunies pour que je me rendisse en Amérique. Ancien élève de l'Ecole Royale Militaire de Saint-Cyr, Clément-Henri marquis de Tilly-Blaru (1805-1875) était lieutenant de dragons quand éclata la révolution en 1830. Il donna sa démission et prit part à la tentative de soulèvement légitimiste. Il dut s'expatrier en Suisse, où il resta quelques années et fut le premier Français qui fit l'ascension du Mont-Blanc, le 9 octobre 1834 (Ascensions aux cimes de l'Etna et du Mont-Blanc. Genève, 1835). Renommé pour ses nombreux travaux d?ingénierie relatifs aux chemins de fer et au creusement de canaux, il fut missionné plusieurs fois par la Banque Suisse pour ses brillantes qualités d?expertise (Note sur l'expertise de la Banque suisse ordonnée par arrêt de la Cour de justice du 21 décembre 1868 par le marquis Henri de Tilly - Lyon, 1869). Sa relation bien détaillée et circonstanciée (climat, faune et flore, économie) débute le mercredi 18 mai 1864, sous forme de journal avec la traversée de l?Atlantique puis la description des Açores des Caraïbes, Porto-Rico, St-Domingue, la Jamaïque, la baie de Panama, le débarquement à Greytown le port du Nicaragua à l?embouchure et la remontée du San Juan, l'arrivée à San José du Guatemala enfin le récit de son séjour au Guatemala. La seconde partie plus courte est principalement consacrée aux Etats-Unis de 1865 (visites de New-York, des chutes du Niagara) bouleversés par la guerre de sécession et ses conséquences menaçantes pour le légitimiste Clément Henri de Tilly Blaru. L'absence de titre conjuguée à l'absence de signature, l'anonymat de l'auteur (Tily Blaru) et du destinataire (Mon Général) indiquent qu'il s'agit là très vraisemblablement d'un premier état du rapport ou du compte-rendu attendu par les commanditaires. Le manuscrit parfois biffé, parfois corrigé mais d'une grande lisibilité, fut probablement rédigé par Henri de Ti [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Small archive pertaining to Captain James S. Johnson and the U.S. Hospital Steamer Ginnie Hopkins

      St. Louis, 1865. Very good. This lot contains four items: 1) Captain Johnson's manuscript Honorable Discharge from federal service, dated 12 September 1865 (approximately 6" x 8"), 2) A letter of recommendation dated September 12th 1865 at St. Louis, Missouri for Captain Johnson testifying to his integrity, morality, and steadfastness during "perilous service," signed by the Surgeon in Charge of the U.S. Hospital Steamer Ginnie Hopkins (approximately 8" x 10"), 3) A cdv of Captain Johnson (identified in pencil on the reverse) in civilian clothes taken at "Mansfield's City Gallery, Opp. Entrance to Planters House, St. Louis, MO," and 4) A cdv of an army hospital steamer, presumably the U.S. Hospital Steamer Ginnie Hopkins at a levee, probably on the Mississippi. The items come from one of Johnson's descendants, and all of them are in nice shape. The manuscript documents have expected storage folds with some minor splitting. The cdvs have rounded corners and the hospital ship image has some minor foxing. The birth of the hospital ship was a direct result of the Union Army's experience in the Western Theater of the Civil War. While the river-based transportation network of the Midwest was incredibly important, military surgeons were well aware that stagnant pond, backwaters, and levies could be breeding grounds for disease and infections. Initially, the Quartermaster Corps was tasked with using river boats to evacuate the sick and wounded, however medical missions were prioritized well below the movement of troops, weapons, ammunition, and supplies. Eventually, the Union Medical Director, J. Simons received approval from Major General Henry Hallack, the commander of the Department of the Missouri, to charter and outfit a fleet of steamboats dedicated solely to the transport of sick and wounded. The first hospital ship, the Nashville, began service in February of 1862, and others soon followed. The vessels, which were kept in almost continuous operation, generally held four 100-bed wards, each staffed by a medical officer, a wardmaster, and six or seven mostly male nurses. Following the war, Johnson returned to his home in the Franford neighborhood of Philadelphia and established a very successful upholstery business. He was a well-known and highly respected amateur naturalist and a noted amateur entomologist (authoring several scholarly articles on Catocala moths) and ornithologist (collecting over 10,000 specimens of nests and eggs from around the world). Very scarce. As of 2017, no records for other Civil War hospital steamer ephemera or photographs are recorded at ABPC or the Rare Book Hub. Nothing similar for sale in the trade, and OCLC lists two physical hospital ship photographs and six letters, diaries, and memoirs written by patients.

A little rubbed, volume I rear board slightly bubbled and mottled, rear endpapers discoloured, and both hinges repaired, some light browning, but overall a very good set, presenting well.

First edition. Following graduation from Oxford, where he was a friend of Ruskin, "Newton entered the British Museum in 1840 as assistant in the department of antiquities under Edward Hawkins. Here he took advantage of the opportunity to study at First hand a wide range of antiquities, including coins, and acquired a thorough training in curatorship In 1852 Newton resigned from the British Museum on appointment as vice-consul at Mytilene. From April 1853 to January 1854 he served as acting consul at Rhodes In addition to consular duties he was authorized to serve the interests of the museum by acquiring antiquities through excavation and purchase. His excavations on Kalymnos in 1854 and 1855, financed by Lord Stratford de Redcliffe, the British ambassador at Constantinople, yielded many inscriptions for the British Museum. Also in 1855 he unearthed the bronze serpent from Delphi in the hippodrome at Constantinople and visited Bodrum (ancient Halicarnassus) for the first time. After a second visit in the following spring he obtained a government grant of £2000 together with naval and military support for an expedition to retrieve some lions from the mausoleum immured in the castle of St Peter and to excavate the site of the mausoleum itself" (ODNB). Newton became the first keeper of Greek and Roman Antiquities in 1861. He was closely involved in the foundation of three highly influential archaeological institutions: the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies, to which he gave an inaugural address in June 1879; the Egypt Exploration Fund, founded in 1882; and the British School at Athens, opened in November 1886. Newton died in 1894. Atabey 869; Blackmer 1193; Gernsheim, Incunabula of British Photographic Literature, 284. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Dream of Gerontius, first publication complete in the May and June numbers of the Jesuit periodical "The Month, an Illustrated Magazine of Literature, Science and Art," here bound in Vol. II of that magazine, January to June 1865

      Simpkin, Marshall & Co., London 1865 - This true first publication of Father (later Cardinal) Newman's best-known work precedes the 1866 London hardcover first edition by a year. This volume in original dark green pebbled cloth half-bound in black leather, considerably rubbed to corners, binding the issues of the Jesuit periodical "The Month" from January to June 1865 inclusive without individual wrappers. Internal hinges are partly open but the sewn hardcover volume is still tightly bound; will close its own text block and rear board. Three tasteful former ownership stamps to preliminary pages of the Franciscan Convent Library, Waterford. Book smells slightly old & musty, but not objectionably so. The poem, written after Newman's conversion from Anglicanism to Roman Catholicism, explores his new Catholic faith in the form of the prayer of a dying man, with angelic and demonic responses, concerning death, Paradise, God and Purgatory. "The Dream of Gerontius" is said to owe much of its imagery to the Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri. This bound volume of the magazine also contains "Constance Sherwood: An Autobiography of the Sixteenth Century," by Lady Georgiana Fullerton, "The Lays of Darrynane," by Irish poet Ellen Fitzsimon, etc. (A tissue guard is laid in but not attached over the impressive engraved illustration at the beginning of "The Lays of Darrynane" -- signed Linton and possibly by Henry Duff Linton. Scan of this plate, which is reminiscent of William Blake, available on request.) 578 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Later library markings on recto and verso of front cover. Minor soiling, but generally quite clean internally. Good plus.

He wrote a letter to President Lincoln in 1865, denouncing the closing of his newspaper as an outrage on the liberty of the press and of religion. He continued to preach and publish after the war, distinguishing himself in the Presbyterian Church. This copy has the contemporary ownership inscription of James Park of Knoxville, Tennessee, another Presbyterian minister. SABIN 72184.
