        MAP OF LONG ISLAND, AND THE SOUTHERN PART OF CONNECTICUT

        [TWO EARLY PHOTOGRAPHS OF IOWA & SAUK AND FOX INDIANS FROM THE DELEGATION TO WASHINGTON]

      [Washington, 1866. Mounts slightly warped, one moderately soiled. Images somewhat faded. Very good. Two early photographs, taken by noted American photographer Alexander Gardner, showing the Iowa and Sauk and Fox delegation to Washington, D.C. in January of 1866. The first shows a group of four Native American chiefs, three are seated and the fourth standing. The second image depicts a Native American standing, clad in native garb and holding a long spear upright. These images follow Gardner's Civil War photos, but precede his important photographic work on the Oglala Sioux. HARPER'S WEEKLY for Jan. 27, 1866, in which there appears a reproduced engraving of the present group photograph, reads: "We give on our first page portraits of four of the Indian delegates from Nebraska. The delegation, consisting altogether of eight Indians, arrived in Washington on the evening of January 2, in company with Major J. A. Burbank, United States Indian Commissioner for the Great Nebraska Agency. There were five Indians of the Iowa tribe and three of the Sac and Fox tribe. Three of our portraits are of Iowas, namely: Lag-er- lash, or British, Too-hi, or Brier Rose, and Tar-a-kee, or Deer-ham, the two first being half-civilized, while Deer-ham represents the wild portion of the tribe. Pe-ti- o-ki-ma, or Hard-fish, is a wild representative of the Sacs and Foxes. ... The main object of the present visit is to have a 'talk' with regard to a treaty made in 1861, and to have it renewed. When they sold their lands to the Government, they understood the agreement to be that they were to receive the purchase-money in hand. The United States hold the principal, however, and the Indians are regularly paid the interest. ... But of course the enjoyment is partly the object of their visit, for an Indian considers it one of the greatest events of his life to visit Washington and see his 'Great Father,' and nothing gives him more pleasure, or makes him think himself, or be esteemed by others of his tribe, a great man, than when he can rehearse to a listening audience what he has seen and heard on his travels. They will also carry back with them new silver peace medals, a number of which are now being struck at the Philadelphia Mint." Alexander Gardner (1821-82) was one of the most important photographers of his day. Gardner gained fame through his work during the Civil War, first with Mathew Brady's studio and then as official photographer for the Army of the Potomac, when he produced several now-iconic images. After the war he became a field photographer for the Union Pacific Railroad. In the 1870s he established a studio in Washington, D.C., and made contracts with William Blackmore to photograph visiting Indian delegations. The present images, however, follow on the heels of his Civil War publications, making them notably early. An image of this delegation by Gardner, in an imperial 13 by 19-inch format, realized $59,800 in May, 2006 at Cowan's Auctions. The National Anthropological Archives holds the original glass plate negatives of these images.

        FOUNTAIN SAVANNAH, GA. [Plate 51]

      [New York, 1866. Expertly repaired tear to mount, lower left corner and mild discolouration in the mid-section of the image, otherwise good tones. A stunning image from George N. Barnard's album titled PHOTOGRAPHIC VIEWS OF SHERMAN'S CAMPAIGN, EMBRACING SCENES OF THE OCCUPATION OF NASHVILLE, THE GREAT BATTLES AROUND CHATTANOOGA AND LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, THE CAMPAIGN OF ATLANTA, MARCH TO THE SEA, AND THE GREAT RAID THROUGH THE CAROLINAS (1866). This album, together with Alexander Gardner's PHOTOGRAPHIC SKETCHBOOK OF THE CIVIL WAR (1866), are the two greatest photographic monuments of the Civil War. Between them they contain some of the most famous images of the War. Keith F. Davis calls Barnard's album "a landmark in the history of photography." A contemporary reviewer wrote of this image and its companions: "These photographs...surpass any other photographic views which have been produced in this country - whether relating to the war or otherwise" (HARPER'S WEEKLY, Dec. 8, 1866, p.771). The present image offers a poignant reminder of the trail of destruction left across the Confederacy by Gen. William T. Sherman's army in 1864 to 1865 during his famous campaign from Nashville to Chattanooga, then Atlanta, and so to Savannah and the sea, then by-passing Charleston, and north to Columbia. In the meantime, a smaller force had occupied Charleston and Fort Sumter. To the North the military campaign was brilliant, bold, and decisive - an event worthy of the present monumental album. To the South it was vicious, bloody, and destructive.

        SHERER'S MASONIC DEGREE BOOK OF ANCIENT CRAFT MASONRY: BEING A CORRECT PRESENTATION OF THE EMBLEMS OF THE BLUE LODGE DEGREES OF ENTERED APPRENTICE, FELLOW CRAFT, AND MASTER MASON ACCORDING TO THE AMERICAN SYSTEM

      Cincinnati, 1866. Large folio. Modern half calf and cloth, original gilt leather label preserved on front cover. Slight paper loss, not affecting text, at bottom of titlepage, expertly filled in. Light foxing and some noticeable thumb-soiling, some pencil and ink notations annotating the images. Very good. An remarkably rare Masonic book illustrating ceremonies for the three degrees of craft masonry. John Sherer, himself a Mason, published a number of books on freemasonry, and found considerable success with both THE MASONIC LADDER (1866) and GEMS OF MASONRY (1859). The present work was produced in the wake of Sherer's Masonic Carpets, which he produced to hang in Masonic temples to aid masters with ceremonial rites. The last page carries the imprint of Ehrgott, Forbriger & Co., who executed the lithography. This copy comes from the Hudson River Lodge, No. 607 in Newburgh, New York, with their label affixed to the front cover. Interestingly, Hudson River Lodge 607 was chartered the same year as this book's publication, 1866. The only known copies of this title are at Library of Congress, which lists two. Not in OCLC. From a publisher's advertisement in Sherer's THE MASONIC LADDER, also published in 1866: "SHERER'S MASONIC DEGREE BOOK. This is a collection of emblematic plates, suitable for framing separately, or for binding in a volume....They are from the finest lithographic drawings, printed in colors on the best plate paper. The correctness of their symbolisms and elegance of execution are vouched for by a long array of the intelligent brethren who have examined them.

No copies of the 1855 Almanach are recorded in World Cat or in the bibliographies. 1 copy of the 1856 Almanach is listed in Basel [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le livre de l'agriculture d'Ibn-al-Awam (Kitab al-Felahah). Traduit de l'Arabe par J.-J. Clément-Mullet.

      Paris, A. Franck (Albert L. Herold succ.), 1864-1866. - 8vo. 2 vols. (instead of 3). Contemp. purple half calf with marbled boards and endpapers. First French edition of Ibn al-‘Awwam's famous "Book of Agriculture", probably written towards the end of the 12th century and regarded as the most comprehensive agricultural treatise in Arabic. The author "gathers all the knowledge of his time concerning agriculture, horticulture and animal husbandry into a huge compendium of excerpts from all the previous agronomical traditions and treatises [.] To these he often adds his own observations and experiences [.] He records, for example, his experiments in grafting the wild olive of the mountains with the domesticated olive of the plain, and his successful cultivation of saffron, under irrigation, in the mountains [.] Ibn al-‘Awwam’s treatise comprises 34 chapters dealing with all aspects of husbandry - it mentions 585 different plants, explains the cultivation of more than 50 fruit trees, and includes many valuable observations on soils, manures, grafting, and plant diseases (Sarton 1927-48, II, pp. 424-25). Ibn al-‘Awwam also includes an agricultural calendar, one of the few Andalusi agronomists to do so. The last section of his work is devoted to animal husbandry, with chapters on cattle, sheep, goats, camels, horses, mules and donkeys, geese, ducks, chickens, pigeons, peacocks and beekeeping. As well as being of great value and interest for the study of agricultural history, the Kitab al-filaha has enabled scholars to reconstruct the original texts of some previous authors whose work has only survived in abridged or fragmented form. In addition, the profusion of references, even though sometimes entangled and difficult to unravel, provides the historian with a wealth of information on the transmission of knowledge" (). - Lacks the second part of vol. 2, not published until 1867; the set thus comprises chapters 1-30 (out of 34).

Pp. 667, {3}, pp.36 (supplement- first edition of 1852): plus 16pp. publisher's ads. BOUND TOGETHER WITH: Almanach des Ménagères et des Gastronomes pour 1854, 1855 & 1856. Pp.120; 72; 80. Paris, Audot. 1854-1856. All bound in half calf with marbled boards, spine with red and gilt spine label, bit worn at extremities, upper joint splitting but generally good copies. A lifetime ediiton of one of France's most popular 19th century cookbooks written by Louis Eustache Audot (1783-1870). The first edition was published in 1818 and it was reprinted many times. The supplement was first published in 1852. The Almanachs are rather obscure and scarce and are complete as only 3 years of Almanachs were published. Cagle only records the first and mentions the other two so the whole makes a fascinating sammelband. 4 copies of the 1854 Almanach are listed in the US (Indiana& California) & 1 copy in Basel. No copies of the 1855 Almanach are recorded in World Cat or in the bibliographies. 1 copy of the 1856 Almanach is listed in Basel

        Du sommeil et des etats analogues

      Paris: Masson, 1866. 535pp. 220 x 145 mm. Half morocco ca. 1866, light edgewear. Fine copy. First edition. The use of hypnotic suggestion as psychotherapy may have begun with the work of Liébeault, whose Le sommeil represents two years of clinical study of the theraputic uses of hypnotism. Liébeault had discovered that some of his patients, especially those with "nervous" complaints, benefitted by being hypnotized and given reassuring suggestions while under the physician's influence. He concluded that this heightened suggestibility under hypnosis was the key to successful treatment of nervous illnesses, although he could present no theory to explain this puzzling phenomenon. Liébeault's work attracted the interest of Hippolyte Marie Bernheim, who went to Nancy to observe Liébeault's methods. The two men established the Nancy School of psychiatry, whose empirical, therapeutic and clinical approach to the uses of hypnosis contrasted with the investigative and systematizing philosophy of Charcot's Salpetri?re School. Liébeault's work indirectly influenced Sigmund Freud, who studied with Bernheim two decades later. The first edition of Liebault's work seems to have been almost completely ignored by the medical community. J. Milne Bramwell, one of Liebault's English colleagues, claimed that only one copy of the first edition had been sold-- almost certainly an exaggeration, but nevertheless indicative of the book's disappointing reception.

        ARMADALE [-- with a signed note about it to the publisher]

      1866 - [with ANs from Collins] With Twenty Illustrations by George H. Thomas. In Two Volumes. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1866. Bound in full dark blue morocco with gilt-paneled spine and red leather labels. First Edition in book form (after serialization in 20 issues of Smith Elder's Cornhill Magazine, Nov. 1864 - June 1866). "Collins's longest novel. The complex plot combines several of Collins's favourite themes, including the supernatural, identity, murder and detection" [Gasson]. Collins ends his Preface by saying, "Estimated by the Clap-trap morality of the present day, this may be a very daring book. Judged by the Christian morality which is of all time, it is only a book that is daring enough to speak the truth."~This set was bound up by Riviere & Son, probably between 1880 (when "& Son" was added) and the Great War, in dark blue morocco, spines gilt with red leather labels, inner dentelles elaborately gilt. It is in fine condition. Gasson pp 9-11; Sadleir 588 (and pp 376-377, where Sadleir ranks ARMADALE third in scarcity among Collins's novels).~Loosely inserted is a one-page autograph note signed by Collins, on a piece of stationery on which Collins has written out his Dorset Square address and the date March 8th 1866. It is addressed "To the Reader at Messrs Smith & Elders," and reads "Before going to press with the monthly part of Armadale for April, please make the following alteration in the heading of the new chapter at page 23: -- For "The Diary Ended," Substitute The Diary Broken Off. Faithfully yours, Wilkie Collins". He is referring, of course, to the April issue of Cornhill Magazine. (It is interesting that Sadleir, in explaining ARMADALE'S scarcity in book form, says "I suspect that what they [Smith Elder] wanted was a Collins novel as a feature in their monthly, and were not particularly interested in its adventures as a book.") Here in book form, Chapter III of Book the Fourth (pp 274-310 in the second volume) is indeed titled "The Diary Broken Off." The note is in fine condition.

        Photographs of Glasgow College. Glasgow, T.Annan [1866]

      ANNAN,Thomas. Photographs of Glasgow College. Glasgow, T.Annan [1866]Oblong folio album, original green cloth, hinges cracked but firm, triple gilt fillets, with the College coat-of-arms in gilt on upper board and lettered in gilt Photographs of Glasgow College, 13 albumen prints mounted on cards rectos [16.8x12cm - 20.3x14cm], six with arched tops, 9 with Annan?s credit Photographed by T.Annan, Glasgow printed below, card edges gilt, some occasional foxing to endpapers but not affecting images, images clean and crisp.RARE ALBUM BY THE PIONEER PHOTOGRAPHER THOMAS ANNAN THE EARLIEST IMAGES OF GLASGOW COLLEGE BEFORE ITS ENTIRE DEMOLITION.Probably commissioned by the College, these predate the later publication Memorials of the Old College of Glasgow 1871 which contained 41 photogravure images. Today, in the 21st century, the decision to demolish Glasgow College, would be considered as an act of vandalism.This album of original albumen images is significant not only in the history of photography but also because every trace of the distinguished College [or University] of Glasgow, which stood on the east side of the High Street for 400 years has disappeared and the site it occupied has been altered beyond recognition. The site was sold to a railway company and became a railway goods yard. It is now derelict. The College left in 1870 and moved to the west end of Glasgow at Gilmore Hill.The images illustrate where some of the greatest figures of the Scottish Enlightenment worked as lecturers and professors, and in particular Adam Smith, John Anderson, James Clow, Thomas Craigie, William Cullen, Francis Hutcheson, William Leechman, John Millar, James Moor, James Robertson, and John Simson.In 1751 Adam Smith was appointed Professor of Logic at Glasgow College (University of Glasgow) and in 1752 became Professor of Moral Philosophy. He was to remain there until he resigned in February 1764 to become tutor to the Duke of Buccleuch.Although Glasgow College was relatively remote, it was becoming one of the great educational institutions in these islands. There were only 300 students in Adam Smith?s day. The great majority of the students were apparently young men preparing for the Presbyterian ministry. Adam Smith?s moral philosophy chair never had more than 90 students in the public or 20 in the private class.At Glasgow he taught logic, jurisprudence and politics. He was a member of the Glasgow Literary Society. In 1755 he lectured to the Cochrane Club on economics. In 1758 he became Quaestor for the University Library and in 1760 was appointed Dean of Arts. In 1761 he became Vice-Rector. He published two articles in the Edinburgh Review in 1755, in 1759 his first book The Theory of Moral Sentiments and in 1761 Considerations concerning the First Formation of Languages in The Phililogical Miscellany.Adam Smith lived rent free in a house in Professors? Court at the College, with his mother and his cousin, Janet Douglas.It was the custom for professors to take students into their houses. The names of the students who boarded with and were supervised by Adam Smith have been lost, other than Henry Herbert (later Lord Porchester) and Thomas Petty-Fitzmaurice.It was this period at Glasgow College which Adam Smith was later to describe as "the period of thirteen years which I spent as a member of that society I remember as by far the most useful, and, therefore, as by far the happiest and most honourable period of my life".References: David Murray, Memories of the Old College of Glasgow 1927.

        Albany Law School Class Album

      New York 1866 - Full morocco, "Autographs" stamped in gilt on upper board; 8vo (130 x 195 mm); contains 138 small albumen photographs (oval, each about 32 mm at the longest diameter) of law students and faculty, mounted to the recto and verso. All are signed by the subject, sometimes also listing his birthplace, religion, and political affiliations, and sometimes including an inscription. The first 3 leaves are signed by the founders of the school, Ira Harris, Amasa J. Parker, and Amos Dean. Contemporary plain paper covering (home-made dust jacket), signed by A. J. Clarke, and with a laid-in letter 1867 addressed to him by John T. Pope and G. M. Thompson, who became lawyers in the city after graduation. The letter lays out what Clarke ought to expect in terms of practicing in NYC (what his expenses might be, where to find a room), and offers a little gossip on some fellow classmates. Worthy of further study -- this album includes students who went on to have distinguished legal careers, and it's interesting to to see where they came from and (occasionally, via the letter) where they wound up. Binding worn and a bit warped (perhaps due to water-damage); home-made dust jacket soiled and torn; slight wave to text block. Contents, however, remain nice and bright.

      Wien und Cernobbio, um 1866. - Zusammen 17½ SS. auf 9 Bll. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten über u. a. die Unzuverlässigkeit von Kurieren "J'ai suivi votre conseil et je me suis adressé à l'Ambassade belge pour vous faire parvenir le libre en question. Mais Mr O'Sullivan m'a fait dire qu'il n'y a plus de couriers et que l'on envoie memes les depeches par la poste - et la voie ordinaire. - J'ai donc envoyé l'exemplaire par la librairie de Mess.

(18. Dezember). Mitunter fungiert Scherzer als Fürsprecher:"Je vous remercie de votre bonté et vous remet la reponse de Mr Friedländer. Cela n'empêche pas cependant que vous ecriviez des correspondances tant qu'il a quelque chose importante à communiquer. - Le ministre était enchanté de votre article sur Sa brochure et vous en est très reconnaissant." (17. November) Auch verleiht er seiner Sorge um den politischen Zustand Österreichs Ausdruck: "L'état politique de mon pauvre pays me fait tant de peine que je suis reellement souffrant depuis deux mois. Si on ne fait pas des efforts immenses - je crois reellement que l'Autriche est perdue - finis Austriae ! Toutes les provinces se detachent l'une après l'autre - formant des etatsindependants et la partie allemande gravitera vers le Sud de l'Allemagne et sera probablement mieux gouvernée et plus prospère - -" (22.

        ORCHARD KNOB FROM MISSION RIDGE

      [1866].. Albumen photograph from a negative taken in 1864 or 1866, 10 5/8 x 14 1/16 inches, on period card mount, 18 x 21 3/4 inches. Captioned in pencil in the lower margin, later label on verso. Very good. Matted. This image was used by Barnard in his PHOTOGRAPHIC VIEWS OF SHERMAN'S CAMPAIGN (plate 10), but is here separately printed at a contemporary date in slightly larger format than the image in the book and on a period mount with manuscript caption. The image is among the most iconic from the work, here with wonderful contrast and tone. "PHOTOGRAPHIC VIEWS OF SHERMAN'S CAMPAIGN is a remarkable work of great symbolic, historic, and artistic power. It is a result of a complex interweaving of Barnard's personal vision, nineteenth-century pictorial conventions, and larger ideas about war and the American landscape. The album was the most ambitious project of Barnard's career, and has long been recognized as a landmark in the history of photography" ?- Davis, p.170. Barnard's album, titled PHOTOGRAPHIC VIEWS OF SHERMAN'S CAMPAIGN, embraces scenes of the occupation of Nashville, the great battles around Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain, the campaign of Atlanta, March to the Sea, and the Great Raid through the Carolinas (1866). This album, together with Alexander Gardner's PHOTOGRAPHIC SKETCHBOOK OF THE CIVIL WAR (1866), are the two greatest photographic monuments of the Civil War. Between them, they contain some of the most famous images of the War. The present image offers a poignant reminder of the trail of destruction left across the Confederacy by General William T. Sherman's army in 1864 to 1865 during his famous campaign from Nashville to Chattanooga then Atlanta and so to Savannah and the sea, then by-passing Charleston, north to Columbia. In the meantime a smaller force had occupied Charleston and Fort Sumter. To the North, the military campaign was brilliant, bold and decisive - an event worthy of the present monumental album. T o the South, it was vicious, bloody, and destructive. Barnard's album would be the first great landscape photobook, "but it is a wounded, brutalized land - gouged and scarred and broken. Its tone is stoically calm, yet bleak, and is all the more so for being so lucidly understated...[Barnard] shows himself to have been one of the finest landscape photographers, treating those culturally loaded Civil War sites - already in the process of becoming mythic when he pictured them - with respect, but also with a matter- of-factness that is heroic in itself, and served to punctuate the hyperbole of myth" (Parr and Badger).

      1866 - Albumen photograph from a negative taken in 1864 or 1866, 10 5/8 x 14 1/16 inches, on period card mount, 18 x 21 3/4 inches. Captioned in pencil in the lower margin, later label on verso. A stunning Civil War landscape image by Barnard. This image was used by Barnard in his Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign (plate 10), but is here separately printed at a contemporary date in slightly larger format than the image in the book and on a period mount with manuscript caption. The image is among the most iconic from the work, here with wonderful contrast and tone. "Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign is a remarkable work of great symbolic, historic, and artistic power. It is a result of a complex interweaving of Barnard's personal vision, nineteenth-century pictorial conventions, and larger ideas about war and the American landscape. The album was the most ambitious project of Barnard's career, and has long been recognized as a landmark in the history of photography" (Davis p.170). Barnard's album, titled Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign, embraces scenes of the occupation of Nashville, the great battles around Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain, the campaign of Atlanta, March to the Sea, and the Great Raid through the Carolinas (1866). This album, together with Alexander Gardner's Photographic Sketchbook of the Civil War (1866) are the two greatest photographic monuments of the Civil War. Between them, they contain some of the most famous images of the War. The present image offers a poignant reminder of the trail of destruction left across the Confederacy by General William T. Sherman's army in 1864 to 1865 during his famous campaign from Nashville to Chattanooga then Atlanta and so to Savannah and the sea, then by-passing Charleston, north to Columbia. In the meantime a smaller force had occupied Charleston and Fort Sumter. To the North, the military campaign was brilliant, bold and decisive - an event worthy of the present monumental album. To the South, it was vicious, bloody and destructive. Barnard's album would be the first great landscape photobook, "but it is a wounded, brutalized land -- gouged and scarred and broken. Its tone is stoically calm, yet bleak, and is all the more so for being so lucidly understated . [Barnard] shows himself to have been one of the finest landscape photographers, treating those culturally loaded Civil War sites -- already in the process of becoming mythic when he pictured them -- with respect, but also with a matter-of-factness that is heroic in itself, and served to punctuate the hyperbole of myth" (Parr and Badger). Keith F. Davis, George N. Barnard Photographer of Sherman's Campaign (Kansas City: 1990); Parr and Badger, The Photobook: A History , vol. I, p. 45.

        Military History of Wisconsin / Copy of [Shiloh] Lt O A Southmayd

      Chicago: Clarke & Co., 1866 Chicago: Clarke & Co., 1866. First Edition. Large, thick octavo, 1,022 pp. with 12 steel engraved portraits. Full calf, two gilt-lettered black morocco spine labels. Covers very scuffed, spine ends and tips of corners worn bare, amateur tape repair at joints, front hinge, and verso of title page. Blind stamp of the Historical Society of Montana, as well as its spine-affixed label. The name of O.A. Southmayd [2nd Lt., I Company, 18th Wisconsin Regiment] is stamped on front and back covers, making this presumably his copy. Overall, just Good; contents, however, are VG+ to NF. Association copy of the extremely rare 1866 first edition of E.B. Quiner's much sought-after compendium of factual information on the title subject, one which has been so admired that a year 2000 reprint has recently been published, sponsored by the St. Croix Valley Civil War Round Table. Quiner covers virtually every detail of every Wisconsin regiment in his famous opus, making it a Civil War specific reference source unexceeded in information quality and quantity, to the point that even genealogists seek it. O.A. Southmayd, whose name is stamped into the calf leather covers, front and back, was a 2nd Lieutenant in the 18th Wisconsin Regiment during its courageous and famous performance at the battle of Shiloh, where he ultimately was one of eleven commissioned officers captured at the culmination of the intense Hornet's Nest action there (more at: 18th Wisconsin). This copy was presumably either presented to him or stamped by him afterwards, more likely the former. With that status, clearly not replaceable. L18
