He initially started working as a draughtsman and subsequently as a lithographer, but in 1853 he took up photography. Within a few years, he was working as a commercial photographer of landscape and architectural views. During the tour Bedford took at least two hundred photographs.

        The Rocky Mountains (Lander's Peak)

      New York: Edward Bierstadt, 1866. Steel engraving by James Smillie. Proof before title, signed by Bierstadt and Smillie. After the painting, completed in 1863. Fine condition. In 1859, Bierstadt joined an expedition to the West led by Colonel Frederick W. Lander. This work was painted four years later in New York as a tribute to Lander who died in 1862 after a distinguished military career. Bierstadt found it fitting to name the central summit in memory of his fallen friend. The painting was a huge success and was quickly bought by the English railroad magnate James McHenry for $25,000. Its beauty lies in Bierstadt's faithful delineation of the Shoshone Indian village encampment and carefully rendered foliage in the foreground with a middle distance featuring a reflective body of water and the exaggerated snow-capped peak in the background towering over the entire scene. It perfectly embodies the idea of Manifest Destiny and appealed to the imaginations of most Americans who had only read about our untamed frontier. The oil painting is in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Due to its huge popular success, Bierstadt immediately asked James Smillie, America's premier engraver, to produce an engraving. However, it was not until December 1866, after three laborious years in the making, that this engraving was published. Nancy Anderson and Linda S. Ferber, Albert Bierstadt Art & Enterprise , pp. 272-273, number 77, illustrated figure 80.

        Fliegende blatter: 32 volume set (banden): (vol. 44, 1866-1871; vols. 64-95; 1886-1917)

      Braun & Schneider, 1866-1867; 1886-1917. Hardcover. Acceptable. 32 volumes bound in 43. Contains: vol. 44, 1866-1871; and then volumes: 64-95; 1886-1917) 28 cm. A German periodical of wit and humor for a bourgeois audience. 27 volumes rebound in black buckram, these volumes have good bindings and covers. 14 volumes have old 1/2 leather over marbled boards; the leather of these volumes is very dry and brittle and the boards are detached. SOLD WITH ALL FAULTS. Half of 1917 is a loose collection of individual issues in a custom box. Library stamps and markings. Pages generally clean and unmarked. Numerous adds and illustrations. Please review our pictures and ask additional questions. Due to the extreme weight, international buyers must contact us prior to shipment for shipping costs. The Fliegende Blatter ("Flying Leaves"; also translated as "Flying Pages" or "Loose Sheets") was a German weekly non-political humor and satire magazine appearing between 1845 and 1944 in Munich. Many of the illustrations were by well-known artists such as Wilhelm Busch, Count Franz Pocci, Hermann Vogel, Carl Spitzweg, Julius Klinger, Edmund Harburger, Adolf Oberlander and others. "The Fliegende Blätter, [deserves] status in three different categories: First: they are the oldest of those German satirical leaflets which raised the equalisation of text and illustration to the level of conscious agenda. Second: they are the longest-running exemplar of their particular kind. Begun in 1845 they appeared without hiatus for one hundred years thereafter. Only in 1944, in the final catastophe of the second World War, did they succumb. Third: they are easily the most richly and intensively illustrated German periodical of this kind. Pictures â€?" sometimes several pictures â€?" are to be found on nearly every page. The individual issues, each about eight pages long, appeared weekly, for years undated. Twenty-six at a time would be bound into a volume. Understandably, the number of authors of the often outstandingly ironic and sarcastic texts, as well as the illustrators of the masterfully pointed and pithy pictures, climbed into the hundreds. A hundred years of German history: the Fliegende Blatter are without question unique among the periodical genre in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. They hold in store detailed information on politics as well as culture and society. With equal measure of elegance and abandon, they mock Bavarian, German, and European attitudes and events, great and small. They offer, in their own field, an inexhaustible collection of curious and a kaleidoscope of the years between the Democracy of pre-1848 and National Socialism; from Metternich through Wilhelm II to Hitler; in short: between emergence and collapse. Thus, they number among the most superb centrepieces of the German archive." -Alfred Estermann

        KOHEKI NOKOH ZEN SHO. COMPLETE TREATISE ON AGRICULTURE.

      Osaka [1866], Hakubunkan. Yellow stitched embossed stiff wrs. 11 vols, Japanese text, 15.3 x 22 cm., 34+47+37+34+36+46+32+. 32+41+38+36 +3pp. double-folded leaves, profuse b.w. plates,. most likely printed off the old 1696 woodblocks. R A R E !. A valuable & secret work, outlining the techniques of how to make some of the most essential products used in Japan [and China]. * Traditionally the art & technique of making such basic products was guarded by the tradesmen. Families carried on the same trade for generations, and strictly passed down these exclusive techniques only to one's heir or disciple. * This work is one of the earliest published and complete "how to" texts to break with that tradition of silence and fully describing these techniques and the associated technology. * A complete discussion, with illustrations of the plants, tools, great presses, and other machinery and technology associated with the production of sugar, Sake [rice wine], oils, lacquer, Tofu, noodles from flower, cotton and hemp. * Not only a technology, but a superb botanical, a "how to grow" also a text on how to identify which parts of plants are used & at what time in their growth cycle. This is also a commercial botanical, for cash crops for would-be growers. * This careful study outlines how to plan, make and use of the plants and moreover how to extract the vital fluids to effect manufacture of the finish product. * By and large Japanese native plants were used, each related plant used is pictured in color, as a mature tree, showing the flower, leaves, fruit and useful parts are clearly identified. *** THE CONTENTS: Volume 1 begins with discussion of the lacquer tree. How to extract the resin, what tools are employed, with pictures of each tool and appliance. It continues with the technique for the extraction of oil [sap] in the form of a large plank is used with successive wedges pounded in to put pressure against the berries, all wedges & tools shown in detail. Other methods include steaming of the berries, or grating against a great grader with steel blade, the result is boiled, then pressed with a great wedge-like beam with wedges hammered in to exert pressure. In one technique, a great water wheel is employed in a series of pestle-like hammers to crush some dried berries, while other rotating boxes are also attached to the same water wheel to sift and dry the grains. This primitive machine was skillfully and completely made from wood. ** Volume 2 continues with the making of sugar from sugar cane. The plant is shown in color as are all plants used, with the associated buckets, presses, dryers, boiling sheds, and two pictures of what looks like a foreign-made boiler or separator with each part is carefully identified & labeled for reproduction by Japanese. The Japanese had almost no steel for machinery at this time but did have a very limited access to copper for such projects, but were still very late in using steel for such machinery or complicated items. Since sugar cane growth was limited to Okinawa and the Southern-most parts of Japan, sugar from this source was limited in supply and distant. A native kind of "sugar beet" was also employed and could be grown in Northern climes. * The work continues in the same vein, illustrating & outlining a host of other valuable & useful plants to make Sake [from fermented rice], Soy sauce and Tofu from soy beans, and of special interest is the making of buck-wheat noodles. The whole process is carefully illustrated ending in the hanging to dry the nearly 2 meter lengths of noodles on the rack, and final packaging. * The next major food was Tofu. The basic technique involved the boiling of the soy beans, to extract the milk. The tools are wooden boxes with holes to allow excess water to flow out through fine silk mesh, after the Nigari a kind of "bitters" or alum like material was added to make the hot milk congeal into solid. The details of the box, its size & location of holes are carefully drawn in instructional sketches, followed by the techniques, temperatures &c. Hemp is the next product discussed, having been grown and used in Japan for ages. Its uses were for clothing fiber as well as rope-making. * The method of extracting the fiber from the famous cannabis-satavia [marijuana] is outlined & illustrated. The last plant discussed is cotton. With lovely color pictures of all parts of the plant, cultivating and harvest processes, hand-ginning &c. Lastly are the agricultural tools used, long handle hoes, rakes & other implements carefully drawn with sizes and uses. * Each volume also has a chart at the front showing what provinces and villages are producing which products and in what quantities, with statistics. Since this work discusses essential products, its understandable that the Japanese could not function without these basic & essential products. * LACQUERE TREE Lacquer was used for bowls, boxes and in art manufactures. Sake was of course, the national drink after tea, Tofu was the main source of protein for the poor and lower classes who could not afford or did not have access to fish or meat [land-locked communities]. Noodles also a national product was consumed in large quantity during the whole year, thus the ability to dry and save noodles was important to their diet. * OIL EXTRACTION Oils were also essential and needed to cook, fry, lubricate much of Japan. The whole work is truly a magnificent and graphic record of early pre-industrial Japan. * This is also a great late record of the primitive wooden machines and manual techniques employed on the eve of the industrial revolution, which hit Japan just after 1900, some seven years after the publication of this work. Its probably the last look at the ancient & traditional methods, of producing Japan's famous native products. * One gets the distinct impression that Miyazaki published this book with the idea that it would also be important to record for posterity the old native ways before they were replaced by steel machines run by steam, and later electricity. * ILLULSTRATED: The work is so meticulous and written & illustrated in such detail, that one can easily feel that Miyazaki had a premonition of the eminent major changes in the next few years. Living in Tokyo and near-by Yokohama, perhaps he had seen what had happened to other trades under the influence of foreign contact, which caused major changes to Japan as foreign science and technology entered via Yokohama & Tokyo which impacted all phases of native Japan culture & business. *** THE EDITOR: Miyazaki Yasuda [1623-1697] was an agriculturist, born in Hiroshima, who served Lord Tadayuki Kuroda, Lord of Chikuzen Clan. He toured various provinces and made a firsthand study of agricultural conditions and problems. Upon return, he made attempts to introduce land reforms based on Confucian ideology. He is regarded as on of the three great agriculturists of his time. This title is ENCYCLOPEDIA ON FARMING, completed one year prior to his death. See: Japan Biographical Encyclopedia & Who's Who, p.889. *** CONDITION: Covers a trifle rubbed at extremities & corners, contained in an indigo-blue folding Chitsu case, with bone clasps, original title slips, contents bright hand-printed by woodblocks on very white clean Washi hand-made paper. . OSAKA 1896 EDITION: This is bound in the original yellow blind-stamped swastica & bell-patterned stiff stitched covers, 15.2 x 22 cm. Each cover has the title label stating "SAIBAN NOGYO ZENSHO", and a brushed personal library # in the upper right corner, with a cinnabar Hanko/seal in the upper right corner of the first page in each volume reading Sakuramatsu, likely the former collector's name. . The covers of vol.1 are dusty, with a red title page, the balance of the set is by and large clean with a few minor rubs here or there, contents bright, clean.. . * TITLE: Ahead of title is KOHEKI, then the title continues: NOKOH ZEN SHO [Edgren expresses a variation in the Romanization of title], both are one in the same book. * AUTHOR: Miyazaki Yasusada [1623-1697], and also Kaibara Rakuken [1625-1702] [aka Gakuken], see Edgren's note p.261], which is correct, being a slight variation on Miyazaki. There is a slight variant to the author's first name, which is common as he used several "Go" or "Studio" names. The co-author is correct. *** REFERENCES: J.

        (APRIL 2, 1866. - DECLARING THE INSURRECTION AT AN END IN CERTAIN STATES OF THE UNION.) BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. A PROCLAMATION

      Washington, D.C. April 2, 1866.. 2pp. Single folio sheet. Small chip to left edge, a couple tiny holes affecting no text, light edge toning. Very good. An important presidential proclamation, in its official printing, declaring the end of the Civil War in most of the former Confederate states, namely Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Florida. Interestingly, this proclamation did not declare an end to the "insurrection" in Texas; President Johnson officially declared an end to hostilities in Texas a few months later, on Aug. 20, 1866. As such, this present document is an important intermediate step in the official end of the war. A rare document, with no copies listed in OCLC.

        Buch das gut, enthaltend den Gesang....

      Wien, Oesterreich: Kaiserliche wie auch königliche Buchdruckerei 12mo (17.5 cm; 7"). Frontis., 209, [1] pp., 1 plt.. 1866 [with] Catholic Church. Catechism. Buch das gut, enthaltend den Katechismus, Betrachtung.... Wien, Oesterreich: Kaiserliche wie auch königliche Buchdruckerei, 1866. 12mo (17.5 cm; 7"). Frontis., 146 pp., plt., [1] f., pp. [5]?-109, [3] pp. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's set. America's great early lyric poet seems to have had an interest in the Micmac, perhaps dating from his days as a student at Bowdoin College but certainly from when he began conceiving Evangeline and its story of the Acadians who lived among and intermarried with the Micmac. Fr. Christian Kauder (b. 1817) was a Luxembourger priest who worked for ten years as a missionary among the Micmac in eastern Canada: In 1866 he produced a hymnal, a catechism, and a devotional volume (containing prayers for various occasions and excerpts from the breviary and missal) all in Micmac hieroglyphs with occasional headings in German in Roman characters. => Offered here is the complete set of three works. The trio was issued in two versions: 1) with all three works bound together and the Betrachtung full-paginated to p. 111, and 2) as here, in two volumes, the Gesangbuch separately and the Katechismus and Betrachtung together with the latter work having the final three leaves unpaginated. (See Pilling, Algonquian, on this matter of the multiple methods of issue). => This is the first edition of the issue/state of the texts in two volumes. The highly developed system of characters used in these books was invented by Fr. Chrestien Le Clercq (b. 1641) and was used beginning in the late 17th century by the Micmac for both religious and nonreligious texts, written on birch bark. In this production, the Micmac characters are printed on blue-green paper. Provenance: Owned by H.W. Longfellow with "Micmac Language" in his hand on the recto of the frontispiece of the Gesangbuch and "Micmac Language New Brunswick" in his hand on the recto of the frontispiece of the other volume. Each volume bound in black oilcloth wallet-style with a natural cloth tie; some adhesion of old paper to the exteriors of the bindings. Internally very attractive clean, and with a => wonderful provenance.

      Strahan & Co. 1866-1873 - Front. in vols I, IV, vignette title in vol. I, plates; occasional foxing, heavy in places but largely good & clean. Uniformly bound in half calf, raised bands, compartments in gilt, black morocco labels; sl. rubbed but overall a handsome set. The Argosy was established by Alexander Strahan with Isa Craig as its first editor. Launched with the serialisation of Charle?s Reade?s Griffith Gaunt, Strahan reacted to the public outcry caused by this tale of bigamy by selling The Argosy to Mrs Henry Wood who assumed the role of editor. Wood used the magazine, published monthly, to publish her own works including the Johnny Ludlow stories and her novels Anne Hereford, Roland Yorke and others. There were also contributions from other notable authors including George MacDonald, Anthony Trollope and James Grant. The Argosy continued after Wood?s death in 1887 and finally ceased publication in 1901 having been purchased by Macmillan. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Prince's Progress and Other Poems

      London 1866 - Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Hardcover. First edition. A very nice presentation copy from Christina's artist and poet brother Dante Gabriel Rossetti, inscribed "To John H. Pollen from his friend D.G. Rossetti 1867." John Hungerford Pollen (1820-1902) was an artist and writer, and later an assistant keeper at the South Kensington Museum. Pollen specialized in mural painting and was one of the group who worked on the decoration of the Oxford Union debating hall in 1857 along with Rossetti, Morris, and Burne-Jones. This is also an exceptionally lovely copy of Christina Rossetti's second book, published four years after her very popular Goblin Market. This second work was unfortunately not nearly as well received. The poems are typical of Rossetti, being melancholy and sometimes mystical. There are also nine devotional poems. Bound in the original green cloth with a gilt design by Dante Gabriel Rossetti on the front and rear boards and gilt title and author to spine. Except for slight bumping to corners and edges of spine, the binding is near fine. Rear hinge is tender but text block is tight. The interior is very clean and bright with the usual light aging to the margins. There is no foxing. There are two beautiful designs by Dante Rossetti, a full page frontispiece and a half-page on the title page. There is a small stamp on the rear pastedown from the binder, Burns. Very good plus condition. Housed in grey-green cloth slipcase. Small octavo. 216 pages. PRERAPH/012016. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Map of Clear Creek County, Colorado. Drawn and compiled by Theo. H. Lowe and F.F. Bruné, C.E., Idaho, Colorado, Ter

      Louisville: Hart and Mapother Lithographers, 1866. Lithographed map on six sheets unjoined, period hand-colouring in outline, three inset views (two attributed to be after Alfred E. Mathews), within an ornamental border (backed onto linen at an early date, inked library stamp on verso). An incredible, large-scale wall map of Clear Creek County, Colorado published less than a decade after the discovery of gold in the mining district and at the very outset of the area's settlement: a significant Colorado cartographic and mining rarity. Clear Creek County, located approximately 30 miles west of Denver, was one of the original 17 counties of Colorado Territory created in 1861. Settlement in the region, however, began in 1859 during the Pike's Peak Gold Rush, when prospectors settled along Clear Creek hoping to strike it rich. The large scale of this breathtaking map, projected at two thousand feet to the inch, allows for incredible detail of the county to be shown in the earliest years of its existence. The county is divided into 32 named districts, with a large unnamed area in the southeastern corner of the region. Mountains are named and beautifully shown via soft hachuring. Towns and creeks are identified, as are the wagon roads to Denver and Central City and numerous trails through the mountain passes. The proposed route of the Pacific railroad is clearly shown following the course of Clear Creek though Idaho to George Town, then back along Clear Creek and through Berthoud Pass to the northwest. Larger ranches are named (particularly in the more remote areas), and several businesses, including hotels, groceries and even a bathhouse, are located. The detail on the map, however, is most evident respecting the county's mining resources, with over 125 individual lodes located and named, plus over 25 quartz mills and several saw mills in addition. Most of the lodes are closely congregated along the Clear Creek west of the town of Idaho. At each of the lower corners of the map are inset views attributed to be after Alfred E. Mathews based on the style and the presence of similar images in his 1866 Pencil Sketches of Colorado . In the lower right corner is a view of Idaho Springs, titled "Idaho The County Seat of the Clear Creek County / Taken from the Illinois Bar" (the county seat moving to Georgetown the year following this map); plate 12 of Pencil Sketches includes a similar view of the town, though from a vantage point south of the town rather than east as in the present view. In the lower left corner is a view of the region north of the town of Empire, titled "Upper Empire and Silver Mountain"; while this view did not appear in Pencil Sketches , Matthews did depict the town of Empire nearby ( Pencil Sketches , plate 13). The third inset is an untitled cross-section view of the interior of a working mine, showing a shaft with an adit. A key, located to the left of the mining view, identifies the symbols used on the map and below the key is a listing of the county's mountains with elevations above Denver, with their respective elevations given. Theodore H. Lowe and Francis F. Bruné came to Colorado during the Pike's Peak Gold Rush of 1859. It is assumed that both were trained surveyors, and Lowe seems to have been employed for a time by the U.S. Geological Survey. A printed note in the upper left corner of the decorative cartouche confirms that Lowe and Bruné compiled this impressive map from actual "instrumental surveys" in 1865. Lowe would be commissioned a deputy mineral surveyor in Colorado Springs in 1872, with Brune receiving the same commission in Leadville in 1878. The 1879 Leadville directory lists Bruné as the City Engineer. Lowe's contribution to the development of mining in the region is noted in Frank Hall's early history of the state. "The first discoverer of gold in this region [i.e. Cripple Creek in El Paso County], and also the first to develop the vein formation, was Theodore H. Lowe, a noted mining engineer and surveyor. In October, 1881, ten years prior to any settlement at Cripple Creek, while subdividing some pastoral lands for his uncle, William W. Womack, of Kentucky, in the western part of El Paso county, Mr. Lowe found a detached block of what appeared to be float quartz. Breaking off a fragment, he took it to Prof. E. E. Burlingame, the leading assayer of Denver, for analysis, and in due time received a certificate stating that it contained at the rate of $166.23 gold per ton. Encouraged by this result, he returned to the spot and began searching for the outcrop of the vein whence the 'blossom' had been eroded, and at length found it. Locating thereon a claim called the 'Grand View,' he sunk a shaft ten feet deep, as required by law, and recorded the location in the office of the county clerk at Colorado Springs" (Hall, History of the State of Colorado , [Chicago: 1895], vol.IV, p. 102). In 1881, Lowe would produce an additional map of the region (titled "Map of the Mining Districts surrounding the Townsite of Idaho-Springs"), this time depicting just a portion of the county but on a similar large scale and with a version of the view of Idaho from his 1866 map. (See Streeter sale 2202). We locate but two other known copies of this very rare 1866 Clear Creek County map (Denver Public Library and University of Colorado, Boulder [copies at Bancroft and Colorado Historical Society listed by OCLC are photocopies of original) and find no copies of the map ever appearing at auction.

        Illustrations of the Manners, Customs, and Condition of the North American Indians with letters and notes written during eight years of travel and adventure among the wildest and most remarkable tribes now existing

      London: J.E. Adlard for Henry G.Bohn, 1866. 2 volumes, octavo. (9 5/16 x 5 3/4 inches). 313 hand-coloured etchings on 180 plates, including 3 maps (1 folding and printed in colours). (Upper outer corner of plate 105 torn away, clean tears to plates 151 and 179, all in vol.II). Expertly bound to style in red half morocco over marbled paper covered boards, spines in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments, with others with alternate decoration of either a large tool of a shoulder-length portrait of an Indian, or a tool showing a crossed peace-pipe and tomahawk, gilt edges Deluxe issue: one of approximately twelve copies with the plates printed in outline and entirely coloured by hand. This book was and is one of the most widely circulated works on American Indians written in the 19th century, and the illustrations so beautifully presented here remain the most important body of illustrative material of American Indian life in the American West. This is a later edition of Catlins' Letters and Notes ..., styled the "10th edition" on the titlepage: the London publisher, Henry Bohn, took over publication in 1845 and altered the title to that given above. What is important in this copy is the coloured plates. According to Sabin "Mr. Bohn had twelve or more copies colored after the fancy of the artist who did the work, but tolerably well." - Sabin knew Bohn personally and was therefore certainly in a position to know. He goes on to state that 'Such copies are worth $60 a set' (this was probably a bit optimistic, and, in fact, a set brought $24 at the Field sale in 1875. But, in comparison, a copy of the Indian Portfolio... sold for only $1.50). Howes disagrees with Sabin and states that various editions published by Bohn appear with the plates coloured, however, given the quality of the work involved and the lack of any contemporary evidence amongst Bohn's advertising material of a more generally available coloured issue, it would seem likely that Sabin is correct. The plates themselves are clean, fresh, and very handsomely coloured. It is impossible to identify the colourist, but it was quite possibly was one of the Catlin copyists working in England at that time, John Cullum or Rosa Bonheur. The plates illustrate scenes of Indian life in the West, and include a number of portraits of individual Indians. Clark III:141; Field 260; Howes C241; McCracken 8K; cf.

        The House by the Churchyard.

      London, Richard Bentley. 1866, 1866. A New Edition. First Ed. Thus (with expanded text). Publisher's terracotta cloth (professionally recased) titled in gilt to spine and decorated in blind to front and rear boards. Minor edgewear and spotting, a tight, handsome volume. Internally clean, some minor spotting to prelims. A very good, handsome copy with engraved frontispiece and vignette title page. 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 sinsiter by turns, it is also described as a key source for Joyce's Finnegan's Wake.

Second tirage (ou tirage courant) de l'édition originale d'un des recueils érotiques les plus célèbres du 19e siècle, caractérisé par un plus petit format et des pages de titres imprimées uniquement en noir. Frontispices de Félicien Rops, en un seul état dans le Tome I et dans le Nouveau Parnasse, tirés en noir sur chine. Sans les fac-similé d'autographe ni la planche de musique annoncés par certains bibliographes (d'après Vicaire, ces éléments ne se trouvent pas dans le tirage courant). Les pages 229-259 du Nouveau Parnasse contiennent l'Appendice au Parnasse Satyrique, constitué par des notes dues à Poulet-Malassis (anonymes et pseudonymes dévoilés, rectifications, adjonctions). Ces ouvrages ont été condamnés pour outrage à la morale publique et religieuse, ainsi qu'aux bonnes moeurs par les tribunaux de la Seine et de Lille. Réf. Biblio. : Pia, 1087-1088 - Vicaire VI-413-414. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. With 42 illustrations by John Tenniel.

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1866. , 1866. 8vo. Pps. 192. Bound in red cloth, gilt, with powder blue endpapers, all edge gilt, housed in leather collectors box. Neat owner name to margin of title-page with ink faded to a soft yellow (now barely visible). Contents and binding are particularly fresh; a curious copy, originally purchased at auction where it achieved a considerable sum as a fine copy. Upon close inspection however we now believe this copy has been expertly bound in the first part of the twentieth century, using the same red cloth and binder's brasses which are virtually identical to the original design; in addition the correct powder-blue endpapers are employed. The leather box is likely from the 20's or 30's, and was conceivably made when this binding was first executed. A striking copy of a landmark title. FIRST PUBLISHED EDITION of 'Alice in Wonderland.' Lewis Carroll disliked the edition published in 1865 so much that he had them all recalled and shipped out to the U.S.A. where the title pages were removed and new American ones inserted. Carroll's annoyance was with the typography and general look of the book. The illustrator, Tenniel, also complained that his illustrations were not being done justice. It is estimated that no more than 20 of these 1865 issues escaped. They are mostly now held in institutional collections. The new sheets were issued in the UK the following year. It is uncertain whether the edition comprised two thousand of four thousand copies. Williams, Nadan, Green [46]
