VILLIERS DE L'ISLE ADAM, Auguste de.
Saint-Brieuc, Guyon Francisque, 1866. Grand in-8, (12)-75 pages. Maroquin brun, dos à nerfs orné, encadrement de quatre filets dorés sur les plats, tête dorée, couverture conservée (reliure signée de Vermorel). Avec un envoi de l'auteur à Georges Pradel. Bel exemplaire. Deuxième édition, hors commerce, tirée à petit nombre. "En 1865, très jeune encore, [Villiers] fit Elën, un drame d'amour exquis et sombre dont il faudrait citer le magnifique rêve d'opium. Le lecteur, après avoir pris connaissance de ce fragment, pourrait comprendre à quel écrivain de race et de taille l'on a affaire quand on visite ce poète absolu. Car poète, bien qu'ayant écrit relativement peu de vers, il l'est plus certainement qu'aucun de cette époque-ci, ou tout au moins autant que les plus vraiment poètes du siècle." (Paul Verlaine, Les hommes d'aujourd'hui, 1888) Première oeuvre théâtrale de Villiers de L'Isle Adam, dédiée à Théophile Gautier, Elën ne fut représentée qu'en 1895, au Théâtre libre, six ans après la mort de l'auteur. L'édition originale, publiée à Paris en 1865, est extrêmement rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

(DICKENS, Charles) LONDON. Theatre Royal, Sadler's Wells.
Nassau Steam Press. 1866 Double-width playbill, uplettered along central margin 'Any charge made for this bill is fraudulent'. An exceptionally well-preserved clean example. Bolton, Our Mutual Friend, no. 2. Theatrical adaptations of Our Mutual Friend were relatively few and far between, with none appearing during its initial serial run, and only eight reaching the stage before the decade was out. This version, written by the librettist Henry Brougham Farnie, concentrates primarily on the dust heap. Bolton notes that 'early performances lasted four and a half hours', but these were later curtailed. The main feature of the playbill is Watts Phillips' drama The Poor Strollers, concluding each night with W. Brough's 'brilliant burlesque' Papillonetta. The announcement for the forthcoming production of The Golden Dustman, with Nye Chart as acting manager, occupies the lower portion of the right-hand column.

LE FANU, Joseph Sheridan (1814-1873).
London: Richard Bentley, 1866. [Strange Tale] New Edition, being the FIRST ONE VOLUME EDITION. Features two engraved illustrations and expanded text). Publisher's ribbed bottle-green cloth, blocked in blind, decorated in gilt to spine, coated brown endpapers. We believe this to be the PRIMARY BINDING, having previously catalogued a variant (cheaper) publisher's brown cloth binding with plain white endpapers). A little spotting / toning within, some soiling/discolouration to boards and titles to spine, old internal cloth joint repair, rear endpapers pasted together. A scarce and important edition; no other copy in publisher's cloth is offered for sale at the time of writing. Part mystery, part history, The House by the Churchyard begins with a prologue in the voice of an old man, Charles de Cresseron, that is set in Chapelizod, Ireland, roughly a century after the events of the novel proper. This prologue details how, during an interment at the churchyard of the title, a skull is accidentally unearthed, which bears the marks of two crushing blows to the head and - even more disconcertingly - a small hole from a trepanning. The novel itself is Cresseron's reconstruction of the history related to this grisly item. Apart from the fact that as a novel it is charming, funny and sinister by turns, it is also described as a key source for Joyce's Finnegan's Wake.

Shakespeare, William
Nákladem Musea Království ?eského, V kommissí u Fr. ?ivná?e, V Praze [Prague], 1866. First edition in this format. In late 19th-century, tooled, burgundy buckram, spine gilt. Ribbon marker. [8], [1]-94, [2], [4], [1]-96, [4], [1]-100, [4], [1]-102, [4], [1]-66, [5], 72-163, [1] p. Six first or early Shakespeare editions in Czech. Despite the numbering of the volumes of this series, it seems that the copies vary in content, they were supposedly custom made for subscribers, thus the dates of the plays the volume contains do not always correspond to the date on the title page. I give the most probable dates of each title according to the NKC - Electronic Catalogue of the National Library of the Czech Republic, however, what we find in the book might be a later issue of the indicated edition. 1. Zkrocení zlé ?eny (The Taming of the Shrew): This is the first Czech translation of the play. Published first in this series in 1872. Other sources claim that the first edition is dated 1866 (the year of the theatrical premiere and which corresponds with the date of the title page of the volume), however, I could find copies but the date of 1872. 2. Veselé ?eny Windsorské (The Merry Wives of Windsor): This is the first Czech translation of the play. Published first in this series in 1856. 3. Dvé ?lechtic? Veronských (The Two Gentlemen of Verona): 2. Dvé ?lechtic? Veronských (The Two Gentlemen of Verona): This is the first Czech translation of the play. Published first in this series in 1869. 4.

Detailed contemporary pencil essay on the League and its work on bottom of page 7 and all of the final blank. Very Good.This pamphlet, scarce in any form, is rendered unique by the interesting pencil essay appearing at the end. Issuing during one of America's most turbulent eras, it is a powerful assertion, by courageous and politically sophisticated black Pennsylvanians, of their entitlement to equal rights in all areas of American life. This Memorial was presented to Congress a month before passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1866, declaring Negroes citizens, nullifying newly enacted southern Black Codes, and guaranteeing their equal rights. President Johnson vetoed it, but it became law when Congress overrode him. The League "stands pledged to leave no means untried to regain those rights of which we, citizens of the United States and citizens of Pennsylvania have been so cruelly and unjustifiably deprived...

This issue features Alfred Guernsey's famous account of the Civil War. Alongside the significant articles and anecdotes included in this work are a massive total of 998 illustrations depicting battle scenes, city views, maps, and of course portraits of iconic generals. Per Eicher,"this is the classic early pictorial history of the war. Drawn from the pages of Harper's Weekly, the work offers not only a chronology of the war but a briefer treatment of the history of the United States with emphasis on the causes of the war... This work delivers the news of the war much as the civilians during the conflict experienced it, and it is therefore both touching and memorable."Item number: #10722Price: $599GUERNSEY, Alfred Harper's pictorial history of the Civil WarChicago: Star Publishing, 1866. 1st editionDetails:· Collation: Complete with all pageso Vol. 1: [7], 380o Vol. 2: [iv], 381836, [2]o 998+ engravings (Eicher)· References: Eicher 768· Language: English· Binding: Hardcover; tight and secure · Size: ~16 in X 12 in (40.5 cm x 29.5 cm)Our Guarantee:Very Fast.

FIRST INTERNATIONAL.) MARX, Karl.
Geneva: J.-C Ducommun et G. Oettinger, 1866. Octavo, 30 pages. Near-contemporary plain brown wrappers, preserved in a cloth chemise and slipcase. Minor chips at spine ends, covers lightly soiled, front cover and free endpaper separating slightly at head, corners a little dogeared. A very good copy. First edition of this account of the 1866 Geneva Congress, the first congress of the International Workingmen's Association, commonly known as the First International. The Association had been founded in 1864 in London by French and British radicals, including the exiled Karl Marx, who delivered the inaugural address at that meeting. The first congress was held in Geneva in 1866; the present work covering the proceedings, including the opening statements of Dupleix and Becker, listed as the presidents of the French and German sections respectively. Marx was unable to attend the event in person, preferring to stay in London working on Das Kapital, but his 11 "instructions" were read and are here published (pp. 13-14). The Congress's emphatic support for the 8-hour working day led to this aim becoming a major goal of the international socialist movement. The edition is highly rare, with only two copies known in institutional collections, the first in the Bibliothek der Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (Karl-Marx-Haus) in Germany, the other in the Bibliothèque de Genève in Switzerland.

STURGIS, William
West Point, New York, 1866. Handwritten manuscript in ink. Octavo. pp. 1-22 (loose sheets). Two old horizontal folds, near fine. A detailed travel diary of a sailboat excursion on the Hudson River and an extended stay at the West Point Military Academy. Written by William Sturgis, a New York native and Civil War veteran, who later became a prominent cattle baron in Wyoming and played a leading role in the commercial development of Cheyenne in the 1870s. The undated manuscript, written not long after the Civil War, recounts Sturgis's week-long stay at the quarters of "Our friend the Colonel" on the West Point campus. The narrative account begins on a Saturday at dusk: "The good yacht our floating home came gracefully sliding around the point . and lowered her sails off the old wharf at West Point, the place where rocks & cadets stand perpendicular. ." After announcing their presence with a cannon shot, the Colonel "responded to the call of our artillery as promptly as he did to the long roll on the Banks of the Shenandoah on that dusky morning when the Johnnies came out of the mist like so many phantoms . We soon had him on board & found we were just in time for the Dress Parade at sunset . ." Thus begins Sturgis's detailed description of his visit as he ascends the mount by carriage and attends the Dress Parade, and giving his impressions throughout the course of his stay of the "thousand soldiers at the Point divided between Cavalry, Artillery, & Engineers." Of particular interest is his description of "Old Put" (Fort Putnam, then in a ruined state), the picture gallery, t … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Four autograph letters, signed, to his wife, Carlo]. Pernambuco, Cayenne, 20 May-27 August 1866. 8vo (21 x 13.5 cm). In French, in brown ink on paper. [62] pp. including 1 blank, numbered mostly as double leaves: 5; 7; [1]; 2; [1]. Four letters by the Madrid-born French naval officer (later Admiral), explorer and hydrographer Amédée Ernest Mouchez (1821-1892), written to his wife in France (apparently Paris) during his hydrographic expedition to map the Brazilian coast aboard the La Motte-Piquet, dated 20 May, 31 May-13 June, 13 June, 14 June -27 August. The 61 pages of text nearly form a journal of his voyage, with detailed day by day accounts of the progress of the expedition, his own and the crew's moods, the political situation in Brazil, anecdotes about the trials and tribulations of life in Brazil, etc. He wrote the present letters toward the end of his third expedition to Brazil, which ran from 1864 to 1866. Having not seen his wife and daughters for two years he felt quite homesick and eagerly awaited his return to France.The outside pages of 3 double leaves have rusty imprints of paperclips formerly used to keep the leaves together, 1 double leaf has a small hole slightly affecting three words and a few have minor tears along the fold. In very good condition. A detailed account of events and Mouchez's personal views during his third South American expedition. For Mouchez: DSB IX, p. 551.

Kamilaroi, Dippel, and Turrubul: languages spoken by Australian Aborigines.Sydney, Thomas Richards (New South Wales government printer), 1866. 4to. With an armorial vignette printed in several colours and gold (the unofficial "Advance Australia" Australian coat of arms), 4 fine full-page wood engravings of plants and flowers. Original publisher's maroon textured cloth. VI, 88, [2] pp. First edition of grammars and vocabularies for three languages spoken by Australian Aborigines, compiled by William Ridley, professor at Sydney University and Minister of the Presbyterian Church of New South Wales. Ridley (1819-1878), an English missionary, came to Sydney in 1850. He wished to learn these languages in order to teach the Aborigines and carry out missionary work among them. Since the Aborigines had no written language, the present book forms a primary source for the languages as they existed more than 150 years ago, when they had had less contact with the Western world. He writes that he found these Aboriginal languages to posses a remarkable regularity and exactness, and that they "indicate an accuracy of thought, and a force of expression, surpassing all that is commonly supposed to be attainable by a savage race". In 1866 that was a remarkably progressive notion. He also adds some notes on Aboriginal names and customs. The book is nicely produced, with lovely wood engravings and interesting as an early example of Australian colour printing. The coat of arms is much like the earliest one known, which dates from 1821, but the third quarter shows a barrel and other goods rather … [Click Below for Full Description]

FINE NAVY CRUSHED MOROCCO BY RIVIERE (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers framed by gilt rules with fleuron cornerpieces, large gilt arabesque at center, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with fleuron centerpiece, gilt titling, heavily gilt inner dentelles, all edges gilt. Photo-lithographic facsimile with 252 woodcut emblems in the text, and 72 plates relating to the history of emblem books.A hint of wear to joints, a couple of short scratches to rear board (well masked by refurbishing), minor offsetting to flyleaves from binder's glue, about two-thirds of the leaves uniformly lightly browned (due to paper stock), but still an excellent copy, clean and fresh with ample margins, in a sound binding.In a handsome binding from a first-rate workshop, this is a very pleasing 19th century facsimile of the first emblem book printed in English, and an affordable alternative to that very rare and quite costly work. With nearly 250 woodcut emblems, Whitney's collection of emblems first introduced English readers to a wealth of material gathered from earlier French and Italian emblem books published by Plantin, such as those of Alciati, Sambucus , Adrianus Junius, and Paradin. Just over 80 percent of the woodcuts were printed from blocks identical with the Continental works, and, editor Henry Green has included examples of these "borrowed" emblems in the 72 plates here.

Copies, I could see that two thumbnails (the title page and the cul-de-lamp) are different each time [on the etchings table sheet they do not bear any precise title, unlike all the other photographs in the book]; the photographer (self-publisher of the book) obviously had fun personalizing each copy.

Barrow, Frances Elizabeth
Buffalo: Breed & Lent, (1866). Daisy No. 1; Daisy No. 2; Daisy & Dot; Daisy's Kittens; Daisy's Death; Dot. Six volumes, complete. Each volume contains 64pp. In the first issue of The Miniature Book Collector, Ruth Adomeit devoted several pages to the series of books published by Breed and Butler, and recounted her discovery of this series, which are the smallest and rarest of the Aunt Fanny books. Barrow, through Breed and Butler, published four other sets of six books under the pen-names Aunt Fanny and Aunt Laura; Adomeit's speculation that there were six books in this series was confirmed, and then questioned over the course of two subsequent issues. The appearance of a copy of Daisy's Kittens with a cover title reading Daisy's Letters turned out to be a phantom, even though Doris Welsh in her bibliography noted it. In addition, it was noted that not all copies of Daisy's Kittens have the shorter title on the title page; some, including the copy in this set, have the longer, more specific title, Daisy's Six Kittens. In this set, four of the books are bound in blue cloth, one in brown and one in red. A few covers have slight rubbing and one has three small stains to the rear cover. There are some split hinges to several books, but all are complete with their endpapers intact. Condition ranges from very good to near mint. This complete set is among the rarest of 19th-century miniature books. (MBC I: 6,8-9; II: 60-61; Welsh 408). (1 1/4 by 1; 33x25mm).

CARROLL, Lewis (DODGSON, Charles Lutwidge)
New York: D.Appleton & Co, 1866. First edition, second issue (i.e. the first published edition of the original sheets). Original red cloth lettered in gilt with triple gilt ruled borders and gilt vignettes to covers. Dark green endpapers, all edges gilt. A very good copy indeed which shows a little wear to the spine ends, but is bright and clean and most unusually, completely free from repair. Internally fresh with a bookplate to the front endpaper and the front hinge starting. An exceptionally well preserved copy. Forty two illustrations after John Tenniel. An original printing of Alice was undertaken by the Clarendon Press in Oxford in early 1865 and famously recalled because John Tenniel considered the printing unsatisfactory. In April 1866 Dodgson (having consulted Tenniel) authorised Macmillan to sell 1000 sets of the recalled 1865 sheets to the New York publisher, D. Appleton with a new title page printed at the Clarendon Press and bound in London. Thus, although distributed in America, this edition represents the earliest practically obtainable issue of the original printing of Alice in Wonderland. The success of the book was immediate, its influence far reaching and opened the floodgates to a regular procession of successful children's novels to follow. PMM 354 (note); Williams, Madan, Green and Crutch 44. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
