        Two (2) Volumes - Title 1: The Present State of Dahome and Title 2: A Day Amongst the Fans

      London: John Murray, 1865. Published in the Transactions of the Ethnological Society of London. 8vo. 18 pages, unopened. This volume also contains two reports by Burton, "The Present State of Dahome," 8 pages, dealing primarily with the king's annual human sacrifice ceremony, and "A Day Amongst the Fans," 10 pages, dealing with cannibalism and other customs in Gabon territory. Original olive green cloth boards, tooled borders, gilt title to spine. In "The Present State of Dahome" Burton sets forth, so stated, to resolve some misconceptions about the customs and ceremonies then taking place in the country known as Dahome. Here, he is rather gracious and tolerant towards King Gelele and his murderous activities. It is interesting to note, however, that in 1893, his wife and must trusted confident, Isabel Burton remarked, "The King treated Richard very well, but... When Richard returned, he told me that he had seen enough dreadful sights to turn his brain." [Preface to the 1893 edition of A mission to Gelele, edited by Isabel Burton.] The infamous annual tradition of massacring humans for sacrifice, and a second previously unknown custom of multiple executions for King Gelele, are vividly described by the notoriously unfettered and fearless explorer. Other unique customs in Kingdom of Dahomey (in present-day Benin) were the dual monarchy, separate male and female courts, and the role of women as the king's soldieresses, all of which Burton also discusses in detail. In 1863, Richard Burton was sent to Dahomey, as an emissary to the king, in an attempt to convince the tribe to end human sacrifice, in particular the annual ritual of killing military captives, and also to influence the King to his abandon his part in the slave trade and cannibalism. At the time, he was established in his consulate at Fernando Po. His extraordinary firsthand account, a lecture read by him before a keenly attentive crowd of learned scientists and diplomats on 22 November 1864, only nine after his Mission to Gelele, Dahome, precedes the imminent release of his book, "A mission to Gelele, King of Dahome..." Excerpt from the text: "In the years 1863-64 I twice visited Dahome, a country whose savage and somewhat peculiar customs have made for it a name in Europe..." "... enabled me to learn a medium of the Ffon or national language... my experience will rectify many popular fancies wide afloat..." "The extent of Danh-ho-men-to ("the land of Dahome") have been grossly exaggerated... now we must reduce Dahome to one-tenth. The northern frontier bordering on the Makhi mountaineers, is a water called Tevi, eighteen hours of landmarch = forty miles from Agbome, the capital, giving a direct distance of one hundred miles. On the north-east... the Iketu, and other Nagos or Yorubans, who have been plundered, but never subjected... Assuming therefore, forty miles as the medium breadth, we obtain a superficies of 4000 square miles... hedged by hostile races..." "The annual customs are called by the people Khwe-ta-nun, or "The Yearly Head Thing"... The number of victims has been greatly swollen by report... During my second visit to Agbome, forty men were put to death. I presume that an equal number of women were sent to the next world, but if so, the executions took place within the palace. The men were all criminals and war captive. No innocent Dahoman is ever killed on these occasions... it has not been violent... the Zan Nyanyana, or Evil Nights, there were two: January 1st and January 5th, 1864." "The king personally superintends the executions... Some are clubbed... others are beheaded... After death, the bodies are exposed in the Uhunjro market for a few days... seated in pairs upon Gold Coast stools, supported by a double-storied scaffold about forty feet high... Between these patibula are gallows... with single or double victims hanging head downwards..." "To conclude the subject of the annual customs, these ceremonies are of two kinds... The second is the So-sin-khwe... no traveller has described its peculiarities of which I am about to publish." End excerpts. In the second account, "A Day Amongst the Fans" Burton describes the peculiar and little-known customs of the Fang tribe in Gabon territory, a clan of the Bantu speaking Beti-Pahuin people. He deals especially with secret cannibalism, grotesque torture, excessive cruelty and religious rites, weaponry, and the perpetual state of war and defence in which the tribe existed. In contrast, he examines areas in which honour is observed, and mentions concern for tribe's extinction in fairly short order. Burton also attended the king's daughter's wedding. In this account Burton writes,"... the Fan character has its ferocious side. Prisoners are tortured with horrible ferocity, and children may be seen licking the blood from the ground... Cruelty seems to be with him a necessary of life; all his highest enjoyments are connected with causing pain and inflicting death." "All carry arms, generally spears of fantastic and cruel shape, dwarf battleaxes, and curious lotus-shaped knives... The dead are decently interred, except slaves, who as usual are thrown into the forest." This is an original, complete volume of the Transactions of the Ethnological Society of London, which, as well as Burton's two reports, also contains explorer James Augustus Grant's paper pertaining to African tribes, titled "On the Native Tribes visited by Captain Speke and Grant in Equatorial Africa." Replete with numerous fascinating accounts of colonial discovery and perspective pertaining to little-known people groups and tribes, other notable contributors to this volume include Alfred Russell Wallace, Sir Francis Galton, and John Crawfurd.

        Our Mutual Friend. With Illustrations by Marcus Stone.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1865.. FIRST EDITION, bound from the parts. 2 volumes, octavo, pp.[i]-xii, 320; [viii], 309, [1, publisher's imprint]. With forty engraved plates. Half titles present. Bound, as usual without adverts, in original full dark green pebble-grained morroco, extra gilt, with marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Attractive pictorial bookplate to pastedown. Light and occasional spotting, marginal dampmark to first frontis, bindings quite fresh. A bright, near fine set. 'Our Mutual Friend,' written in the years 1864–65, is the last completed novel written by Charles Dickens, and concerns money, and what money can make of life. Preceding Dickens' final crime-based work 'The Mystery of Edwin Drood', this novel also features elements of intrigue and suspense; John Harmon, a wealthy young heir, is supposed drowned and in a case of mistaken identity his estate is passed to Boffin, a former servant of his father. John must infiltrate the Boffin household and gain their trust and friendship in order to regain his fortune.

        Ten-page autograph letter signed

      Fort Kearney, Nebraska Ter: Sunday night, Dec. 17, 1865. A very long, folio-size letter to "Hank and all at home," written over a 4-day period, detailing life at the fort, and the hardships brought on by snow, wind, and frigid temperatures, and recounting his march from Louisville to Fort Kearney in Nebraska in good detail. Some minor dampstaining and fading but completely legible and generally in very good condition. He apologizes for two aborted attempts to write home, the second time when he knocked a poker "from under my desk front and down went paper candle ink and all pell mell into an inglorious mixture up on the floor...I take it for granted you know where I am or rather where I started for...I have written scarcely a word since we left Louisville when our destination farther that St. Louis was entirely unknown to us. When we were some 80 miles out from Leavenworth I wrote a few lines to Lottie and mailed them the next day at a small place called Seneca and if said note was ever received you probably know something of my whereabouts. "I am not in very good humor tonight, and I don't know as I shall write anything worth reading, but I've made up my mind it's time to write to someone and I'm going to do it tonight albeit's half past eleven now, and if you only knew the circumstances under which I am writing, I think you would pardon me if interspersed a few qualifying adjectives...We pitched our tents here a week ago to night with the ground frozen so hard it was almost impossible to drive a tent pin and covered with 10 inches of snow - during the night it came on to blow a gale from the north and before morning every tent in the com'd was on its beams and the thermometer 10 below zero. The quarters at the garrison were occupied by a pack of Volunteer Officers, about one third of whom were entitled to quarter the balance having been allowed to remain here while their companies were sent out to stations along the road...Now as usual it is blowing a gale and cold enough to freeze anyone. Day before yesterday the thermometer stood at 17 below zero at noon and until this noon it has been no higher than 10 below...It's no use trying, my fingers are so numb I can scarcely hold my pen and although I thought to have this ready for tomorrows mail, I shall have to postpone it... "Wednesday night, Dec. 20th...I did not succeed in getting into quarters until late last evening, and then only by strategy. I went to the officer occupying them in the morning and intimated pretty strongly that I had waited as long as possible for said room and that he would confer a favor by taking out himself...Mr. Volunteer began to think I was in earnest and commenced to start and by dark I got established in my quarters which after the place I've been in for the last 10 days are quite comfortable, in fact as I sit here tonight with a warm blazing fire...& Capt. Ten Eyck my roommate sitting opposite me smoking his pipe and occasionally reading aloud a sentence from Our Mutual Friend... "How long it will last though nobody knows for this is already an expedition on foot or rather on horseback being fitted out against the Sioux and it is proposed to send two companies of Infantry out a hundred miles to support the cavalry and hold their base of supplies and it would be just my luck to be sent...(Capt. Haymonds servt has just come in with his compliments and wants to know if Capt. Ten Eyck and myself will come over to his room and get some 'Egg Nogg' and as eggs are 75 cents per doz here I think I will so hold on a minute or two... "But I haven't told you anything of our trip out here and to tell the truth I hardly know where to begin. We left Louisville Fort St. Louis Nov. 3rd and were joined there by 4 companies of the 1st Battallion under Maj. Van Voest. We had a pleasant trip down the river and as we had the band with us, had plenty of music they playing stringed and wing-ed instruments for an hour or two every evening...Then for society we had Miss Col. Carrington, Mrs. Capt. Chambers and Mrs. Lieut. Bisbee with a bouncing 15 month old baby boy who were all bound to follow their liege, lords & masters even unto the Pacific. Arrived at St. Louis Nov. 7th and left en route for Fort Leavenworth on the 10th having in the meantime been transferred to the steamer Yellow-Stone. We were here joined by Mrs. Capt. Neill and daughter Belle a young lady of 15 and our surgeons wife Mrs. Horton. The 1st Batt. went ahead on the steamer Montana & Maj. Van Voest remained at St. Louis to establish the H.d Qtrs of recruiting service at that point. Arrived at Leavenworth Nov. 19th after a rather tedious passage on account of the rather low stage of water...we had to push ourselves at least half way up the river with those long horns which all the river boats carry... "At Leavenworth we rec'd our orders for Fort Kearney and the 1st Batt. for Fort Wise in Colorado, only a five hundred mile march. We remained in camp until Sunday the 26th when we struck tents packed our wagons and about noon pulled out on our first day's journey. The Col. with H.d Qtrs & the band. Mrs. C. & Mrs. Neill having started the day before on a 'special train,' ...I didn't want to start three hundred miles on foot across the plains again in the month of December, and before this war they never thought of starting a train later than the 1st Nov...bitter cold...blowing sand and dust into our eyes till ongoing into camp we resembled a 'Nigger' Regt. more than anything else...That night we pitched our tents on the banks of Indian Creek in a foot of snow. As we were breaking camp the next morning Sergt. Major died and without stopping we scraped the snow for the ground dug a grave deep enough to save his body from the wolves, rolled him up in his blanket and buried him. He was a very intelligent man, highly educated having graduated from a Glasgow College and afterwards studied Medicine at Edinburgh for two years, but there was some mystery about his life and it was an accepted fact that he never could be promoted. Capt. Neill has since told me that he enlisted in Columbus on the expiration of his term at the penitentiary he having been found guilty of forgery... "After leaving the 'Blue' and between then and the Platte is a tract called the 'Divide' some fifty miles across on which there is no wood and very little water and before starting we had to cut enough wood for two days and stow in our wagons. Just barely enough to cook our coffee and meat...We made the march in 2 days going 24 miles the first day and 27 the next and pitched our tents alongside of Fort Kearney on Sunday the 10th day of December, 13 days from Leavenworth with a loss of only 10 men by desertion on the route - poor devils got cold, I suppose, and wanted to go home - I stood the march first rate and only got into the ambulance for about 3 miles one morning. Fort Kearney is in a rather dilapidated condition it having been run by volunteers who have taken no interest in keeping the barracks in repair. Brevt. Gen'l. Heath commands the district and has his H.D Qtrs. here, Col. Carrington commands the post with 2 companies of the 2nd. US Cav. & our Battallion with some Nebraska and Kansas volunteers mostly composed of Reffugees and Parvenues, galvanized men they call them here... Below us 8 miles is a little town which goes under several names such as Dog Town, Pilgrimville, 'Valley City' and two miles the other side lies Kearney City or Adobe (pronounced Doby) a collection of adobe houses I have not yet visited. There is a regular line of stages...daily to Omaha and Leavenworth and supposed to be a mail everyday, but we are very lucky if we get one from the east once a week...I'm like a woman at the piano - get her started once and it might be hard to stop her...Wood is the great trouble here the fort being right in the prairie about 1/4 of a mile from the Platte and it all has to drawn from 12 to 23 miles at a contract price of $20 per cord, and nothing but cottonwood at that. Citizens pay $24 per barrell for flour, $8 for potatoes per bu., 5 cents per pound for butter, 75 cents per doz eggs, whisky $8 per gall warranted to kill at 5 paces - As for myself I expect every day to receive an order & now that I am comfortably fixed to report to Maj. Van Voest at St. Louis for recruiting service, as the 1st and 2nd Battallions are now fully organized and they are all ready ordering in the officers of the 3rd Battallion...I am not particular about returning to the state until next fall but if they take notion to ordering me before they'll be no getting out of it..."

        Commedia di Dante Allighieri.: Con ragionamenti e note di Niccolò Tommaseo.

      Francesco Pagnoni, Milano. 1865 - Esemplare completo di tutte le incisioni secondo l&#146;elenco delle tavole posto al fine di ciascun volume. Belle legature coeve in mezza pelle marrone con dorso a cinque nervi fregi e tioli oro. Ritratto di Dante inc. in acciaio all&#146;antiporta del primo vol. eseguito da Federico Faruffini sui ritratti di Giotto, Nello Fiorentino e Pietro Lombardo e altre 54 tavv. incise in acciaio f.t. ai tre voll. di Giuseppe Gandini su disegni di Federico Faruffini e Carlo Barbieri. Testo su due colonne. Bella edizione della Commedia con il commento di Niccolò Tommaseo e l&#146;amplissimo corredo iconografico, pubblicata in occasione del sesto centenario della nascita di Dante e stampata su carta "glacé". Precedono il testo dantesco i "Discorsi premessi al Poema" che il Tommaseo, in una lettera scritta allo Zambrini, dichiara non suoi e da lui non voluti. Alla fine del terzo volume sono aggiunti vari scritti del Tommaseo concernenti la Commedia, editi ed inediti. Da non confondere con la ristampa riprodotta in edizione economica nel 1869. Il commento del Tommaseo, uno dei monumenti dell&#146;esegesi dantesa dell&#146;Ottocento, è forse il maggiore contributo in merito del tempo dopo gli scritti del De Sanctis. Tale commento fu steso dal Tommaseo negli anni trascorsi in Francia e fu dato alle stampe per la prima volta a Venezia nel 1837. Mambelli, n.349: "Edizione di lusso". Cfr. Francesco Mazzoni, Tommaseo e Dante in "Primo centenario della morte di N. Tommaseo. 1874 - 1974. Atti delle onoranze tommaseiane", Firenze, Olschki, 1977, pp. 29-68. Formato: 3 v.

        Leaves of Grass [bound with:] Drum Taps [and] Sequel to Drum-Taps...

      New York: 1865-67 8vo, 338; 72; 36pp. Old half brown morocco, fragment of the original label on backstrip. Some wear to boards. Significant dampstain to the lower inner and outer margin of text block throughout. Presentation copy inscribed to “W. C. Church from Walt Whitman, Washington, March 1, 1867.” Fourth edition of Leaves of Grass with first edition re-issue of of Drum-Taps. BAL 21399. An important association copy as Church was a prominent figure in publishing during Whitman’s lifetime. “Born in Rochester, New York on August 11, 1836 and son of New York Chronicle’s editor, Rev. Dr. Pharcellus Church, William Conant Church's first brush with the world of journalism occurred at age nineteen when he began helping his father edit the New York Chronicle . It seems that Church originated from a vibrant genetic stock of other well-known military men. In his obituary in the New York Times, Church’s parentage is traced, linking him to previous American wars and the more genteel life of politics: “his grandfather was a native of Mansfield, Connecticut, a soldier in the Revolutionary War and a relative of Colonel Benjamin Church, who took part in Indian wars. His mother's father's mother was a Miss Davis, a member of a well-known Connecticut family, and came from the same stock as Jefferson Davis. Colonel Church was likewise the eighth descendant of Roger Conant, Governor of Cape Ann Colony in 1825, who was founder of the town of Salem, Massachusetts” (“Col. W. C. Church”). Five years after helping at the Chronicle , Church moved on to become editor of the New York Sun . In 1861 he traveled to Europe, but returned to the United States after the start of the Civil War. As a volunteer soldier he served under General W. T. Sherman and wrote about Sherman's victories for the New York Evening Post . Church rose quickly through the military ranks, eventually becoming a lieutenant-colonel. In 1863 he left the fighting behind to start the Army and Navy Journal . During this time he married Mary Elizabeth Metcalf (Kasten). In 1866 William and his brother, Francis P. Church, started Galaxy Magazine . After twelve years Galaxy merged with the Atlantic Monthly . The first stories of Henry James and early writings of Mark Twain appeared within the Galaxy's pages. Louis Starr identifies Church as one of the "Bohemian Brigade," a group of reporters who "were men of energy, style, and perception. If they lacked the magic touch, all of them wrote well enough to bring a sense of participation in the war to their readers, and at times they did it superbly. Through the reprint circuit the work of each, in varying degree, elevated standards of reporting the country over" (266). Starr also connects Church and fellow members of the Brigade to the changing possibilities within the Bohemian group, placing Church and others inside the walls of the Cave: “Soon O'Brien, Aldrich, Thomson, Williams, and Stedman, together with others in Clapp's happy coterie--Charles G. Halpine (who stammered to fame at Pfaff's, speaking inadvertently of 'H-H-Harriet Beseecher Bestowe'), William Conant Church, William Swinton, E.H. House, Charles Henry Webb, a couple of artists, Frank H. Bellew and Thomas Nast: in all more than half of the identifiable clientele at the Cave--would take the field along with hundreds of other youths of like mind to participate in the greatest undertaking in the history of journalism" (9). Mark Lause also names Church in a long list of war correspondents that “had spent time in New York” and who “had passed through Pfaff’s and Clapp’s circle” (110). This brings Church potentially into the group at Pfaff’s, but does not label him as a permanent fixture. In his New York Times obituary, Church was lauded as one of the greatest journalists in the nation (“Col. W.C. Church”). He published in the Century , Scribner's , the North American Review , the New York Times and others. He also wrote biographies of John Ericsson and Ulysses S. Grant. Outside of the journalistic world, Church is best known as a co-founder of the National Rifle Association. He also helped found the Metropolitan Museum of Art and was a longtime member of the New York Zoological Society.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1865 - 1865 Original Paperback Wisden, Facs Spine, 2nd Edition!

      1865. Hi, This lot is an 1865 Original Paperback Wisden. It has an expertly made facsimile spine and is an original 2nd Edition Wisden. It is in Good Condition. I was proud to own this book for years (hence how I can offer it at such a low price) but I have now purchased an original with original spine-ish so my book is up for sale, the covers here have some marks, , a bit of light staining to the front cover but not inside the book. The rear cover has some wear too. The first page has a stamp from the Sydney Pardon Estate which is a nice bonus. The spine holds the book together very well and so is tightly bound. Inside the book is nice and bright and clean, a very rare book. It is quite a bit shorter than my 1864 but so is my new replacement, must have been cut fine back then.

        Guide : Lillywhite Guide for 1865,21st Edition (Smith 22/24)

      Hi, Here we have an 1865 Lillywhite Guide. 21st Edition. I know the editions get messy around here but this is the first of the last three editions, Smith 22, with 2 (1865s or 1865/66) following it depending on the date used. The binding is poor. The Covers are missing. The 4 adverts (2 pages) at the front are bound in at the rear (at the end of the book) and ther rear adverts are present apart from the last 4 pages (8 adverts) , this is comparing it to Smiths Guide, some spotting to the odd page. Clear tape to front hinge. It is a tiny book with bright pages and hard to find.
