        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. 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

      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 adresse a l'Ambassade belge pour vous faire parvenir le libre en question.

Sollte der Adressat seine Artikel rezensieren, bittet Scherzer um ein Exemplar: "Si vous trouverez occasion de faire quelques articles officiels sur le Chapitre " Java " ou " Chine " (Hongkong et Shanghai) ayez la complaisance de m'en envoyer un exemplaire." (18. Dezember). Mitunter fungiert Scherzer als Fürsprecher:"Je vous remercie de votre bonte et vous remet la reponse de Mr Friedländer. Cela n'empeche pas cependant que vous ecriviez des correspondances tant qu'il a quelque chose importante a communiquer. - Le ministre etait enchante de votre article sur Sa brochure et vous en est tres reconnaissant." (17. November) Auch verleiht er seiner Sorge um den politischen Zustand Österreichs Ausdruck: "L'etat 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 apres l'autre - formant des etatsindependants et la partie allemande gravitera vers le Sud de l'Allemagne et sera probablement mieux gouvernee et plus prospere - -" (22.

        Photographer Alexander Gardner, together with over forty of Washington's luminaries, pay tribute to one of America's earliest strongmen and fitness gurus: Abner S. Brady

      Washington, May 9, 1866. 7.75" x 9.75". "Rare Letter Signed, ""Alex Gardner,"" ""Ward H Lamon,"" ""Ely S. Parker,"" together with forty other Washington notables, 3 pages, 7.75"" x 9.75"", Washington, May 9, 1866, addressed to strongman and gymnast Abner S. Brady inviting him to a benefit at Grover's Theatre in Washington to be held in his honor. Moderate toning from dampstain, some glue and blue ink remnants on verso of page one, small hole at top left of page one not affecting text, usual folds, else very good.The letter reads in full: ""We the undersigned, members & friends of your Gymnasium, in the high appreciation in which you are held by us, as well for your indefatigable zeal in promoting the physical well being of all who have placed themselves under your instruction & care, as for your uniformly genial and exemplary deportment as a citizen, have determined on the night of the 28th inst at Grover's Theatre, to tender to you a complimentary benefit, and for this purpose have already engaged the building. We propose in addition to the giving a full Gymnastic Exhibition to vary the entertainment with choice music, to the end that our efforts may prove a decided success. Please advise us of your approval or otherwise of our action in this matter."" Within two years of affixing his extremely rare signature to this letter, Alexander Gardner left photography to start an insurance business. Interestingly enough, just above Gardner's signature is that of fellow photographer John Goldin who created the print, Death Bed of Lincoln / April 15, 1865. Other luminaries who added their signature to the invitation include Ward Hill Lamon (1828-1893) a personal friend of Lincoln and self-appointed bodyguard; Henry Clay Ford (1844-1915) brother of John T. Ford, and stage manger of Ford's Theatre at the time of Lincoln's assassination (Ford was the one who informed John Wilkes Booth that Lincoln would be attending Ford's Theatre the evening of April 14, 1865); Ely S. Parker (1828-1895) U.S. Grant's military secretary during the Civil war, the last Grand Sachem of the Iroquois, and the first Native American to head the Bureau of Indian Affairs; Grant's aide-de-camp, P.T. Hudson; Richard Wallach (1816-1881) the first Republican Mayor of Washington (1861-68) who oversaw the police response to Lincoln's assassination; and William E. Chandler (1835-1917) as Solicitor and Judge Advocate General of the Navy (later served as Secretary of the Navy in the Arthur Administration).Abner S. Brady (c. 1835 - 1890) assumed management of the Washington Gymnasium in 1864. Located on the corer of Louisiana Avenue and West 9th Street, the facility was established in 1857 by L. W. Shattuck, and featured a large hall, approximately 70 by 55 feet, with ""an elliptical race-course, about sixty yards in length... designed for exercise in running, after the manner of the ancients... The rest of the hall is occupied with every variety of gymnastic apparatus..."" (The States, Washington, June 5, 1857, 3). Brady, an early 'strongman' and fitness guru, got his start in New York, where he ran ""Abner S. Brady's Zouave Manufactory"" on St. Mark's place, ""where the soldiers of the Seventh Regiment are exercised far beyond drilling, and where all civilians who see fit to join are greatly strengthened for the battle of life..."" (New York Times, February 15, 1861) Brady was a member of the regiment himself, joining in 1854 and resigning in 1863. In recognition of his contributions, the regiment awarded him with a medal (National Republican, Washington, August 16, 1864, 2).There must have been a scramble among the organizers of the Grover's Theatre benefit as it would appear that the ""28th inst."" was not going to work for Mr. Brady. Plans were soon adjusted and the fete for the celebrated strongman and gymnast was instead held on June 4, 1866 at Grover's Theatre (today known as the National Theatre), in a grand concert (in which Brady's wife sang soprano), and Mr. Brady himself performed an ""EXHIBITION OF GYMNASTICS"" together with ""FORTY of his best Pupils, surpassing any professionals in the country..."" (Evening Star, Washington, June 4, 1866). After a few more years in Washington, Brady gravitated back to New York, which by 1869 had become caught up in the craze for velocipedes?"the precursor to the modern bicycle. The following year, Brady opened a new venue in Jersey City, New Jersey offering ""Brady's Curriculum, Gymnasium, Velocipedes, Bowling, Shooting, Ice Cream &c &c."". Brady appears again in the news 1871, again in Jersey City, New Jersey where he & another man were arrested for assaulting a black man. Brady was acquitted, but his treasurer, Robert Beggs was convicted of ""a simple assault."" (""Velocipede Notes,"" New York Herald, June 7, 1869, 10; Jersey Journal, June 13, 1879, 2; Ibid, January 5, 1871, 1; Ibid, February 11, 1871, 4 ).Following this ugly incident Brady appears to have returned to New York where in 1876 he established the ""Health-Lift Company"" in Union Square which marketed a novel exercise machine. After this point, Brady disappears from the news, On April 30, 1890 Brady died of consumption. His funeral was held at the Marble Collegiate Church on Fifth Avenue on May 3. Members of the Lafayette Post of the G.A.R. organized the service (Daily Graphic, New York, December 11, 1876, 7; New York Tribune, May 3, 1890, 7)."

        in Cyrillic:] Refleksy golovnago mozga.

      St Petersburg, A. Golovachov, 1866 - 8vo (171 x 115 mm), pp [iv] ii 186; a very good copy in calf-backed boards printed with the bookseller's label ('Biblioteka Semennikovykh' in Cyrillic) and address and with their stamp on first page. £3250First edition in book form of Sechenov's greatest work, 'The Reflexes of the Brain', in which the physiological bases of various psychic processes are described. Sechenov (1829-1905), 'the father of Russian physiology [as Pavlov designated him], made his greatest contributions to neurophysiology in his studies of reflex activity of the brain. Sechenov considered that cerebral reflex activity arose from stimulation of peripheral sense organs, was mediated through the psychic realm and was the source of voluntary actions. He believed further that reflex activity could be modulated by other brain centers, particularly the midbrain, which he believed could produce inhibition' (McHenry, Garrison's History of neurology p 226).This work was first published in the medical journal Meditsinsky Vestnik, nos 47-48, in 1863. Censors had forced Sechenov to change the intended title 'An attempt to introduce physiology as the basis of psychic processes' to 'Reflexes of the brain'. When the book was published it was considered subversive to public morals and social order, and Sechenov was indicted, but the charges were dropped the following year. The book was immediately attacked by philosophers and psychologists, who objected to his assertion that psychological activity had a physiological basis.Sechenov proposed 'the theory of cerebral behavior mechanisms, according to which all conscious and unconscious acts are reflexes in terms of their structure ("means of origin"). This theory provided the basis for the development of neurophysiology and objective psychology in Russia, including the investigations of Pavlov and Bekhterev' (DSB). 'The immediate reaction to Sechenov's theory of brain reflexes as one of opposition, but support for it soon came. His thesis that psychic phenomena were akin to the essentially somatic acts that constituted nervous activity found an important supporter in his fellow countryman Pavlov, who described Sechenov's monograph on Reflexes of the brain as "an attempt, brilliant and truly extraordinary for the time . to picture our subjective world in a purely physiological aspect"' (Clark and O'Malley, The human brain and spinal cord p 366). Pavlov's investigations of conditioned reflexes was directly inspired by this work.The Harvard catalogue gives the date of publication as 1867, with the following note: 'for date of publication see N. Kanevets "Tsenzura i nauka," in Russkiia vedomosti (1905, 116, 5)'.Haymaker and Schiller, Founders of neurology, pp 265-66 ('a classic'); Parkinson p 362; OCLC lists copies at UCLA, Library of Congress, National Library of Medicine, New York Academy of Medicine, and University of Washington, Harvard

        Du sommeil et des etats analogues. . .

      Masson, Paris 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 Salpetrière 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.

"Dear Mr. Bouer [?] / I entreat of you to write to me - send your letter on a Thursday, thro' Lord Bloomfield's 'Bag' under cover to Mr. Beaumont (Somerset), 144 Piccadilly. I count on you. I can tell you little from here, for Paris is quite a second rate actor in this drama leaning mostly on poor Austria's consent to seem obliged to the Emperor N. for something. The French Empire is far more beaten than the Austrian one - but then there is this difference that the 'French Empire' is not France. Pray write to me, and give me news [.] Tell me about all our particular friends". - Die schottischstämmige Rose Stewart hatte den französischen Diplomaten und Schriftsteller Henri Blaze de Bury geheiratet, dessen heute bekanntestes Werk wohl seine Faust-Übersetzung darstellt. Durch ihren Salon zählte die u. a. mit Bismarck gut bekannte Baronne zu den hervorragendsten Persönlichkeiten der Pariser literarischen Szene der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jhs.

        La photographie appliquee aux recherches micrographiques. Avec 41 figures gravees d' apres des photographies et trois planches photographiques.

      . Paris, J. B. Bailliere, 1866. 8vo. Half title, list of author's publications, title, 334 pp., 41 text engravings, three original photographs (one in stereo). Contemporary half calf with dark blue pebbled boards, spine with gilt title and vignettes, marbled endpapers.l Rare. The first French account on microscopical natural history photography, or macro-photography (although this word was coined 33 years later, in 1899). The work was written by Albert Moitessier (1833-1889). His list of publications on the half-title verso also shows an interest in chemistry. The albumen photos show microscopic objects such as crystals, diatoms, cells, and a mite; the stereo photo is of a small terrestrial snail, Helix (now Vallonia) costata. This is no coincidence, as the author's father, Prosper-Antoine Moitessier (1807-1869) was one of France's leading malacologists. This is but the third work devoted to macrophotography, preceded only by an English work from 1856, and a German publication from 1864. A German translation, "Die Photographie als Hilfsmittel mikroskopischer Forschung" was published by Berthold Adolf Beneck. Boards a bit rubbed, skilful repair to the spine, old owner's name on title, some mild foxing, otherwise a very good copy. Epstean, 1046; Roosens & Salu, 8386..

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

      New York: D. Appleton, 1866. First American edition. Near Fine. Rare first American edition-virtually the earliest obtainable edition-of the book that forever changed the face of children's literature, preceding the first published London edition. A lovely, Near Fine copy in the original publisher's cloth that has not been rebound, recased or rebacked, as have the vast majority of copies. Cracking at the rear endpaper expertly closed, slight wear at the extremities, one small chip in the cloth at the top of the spine reattached, no new cloth added, two small ink spots on the rear board. Gift inscription on the half-title in pencil, otherwise unmarked. Title page with "b" in "by" slightly to the right of the "T" in "Tenniel" (no priority established). Preliminary leaves in variant state A, with "Alice! A childish..." on leaf [b1r] and "rabbit hole" unhyphenated in the Table of Contents (leaf [b2r]) (no priority established). Like its plot, the book's early publication history could aptly be characterized as having grown "curioser and curioser" at each turn. "The Clarendon Press, Oxford, printed two thousand copies of what has come to be known as the first edition of the book. On May 24, 1865 Carroll wrote to his publisher... requesting 50 copies to give to friends. On 19 July, however, he heard from John Tenniel, his illustrator, that he was 'dissatisfied with the printing of the pictures.' On August 2, Carroll finally decided on the re-print of Alice, and he immediately set about recalling all the copies that he had sent out earlier, promising replacements as soon as the new printing was available. The remainder of the original books were sold to Appleton, the New York publisher, and they would appear, with a new title-page, as the first American edition." Only about 20 copies with the original London title page exist, making it highly prized and virtually unobtainable (Cohen, 113-114). Lewis Carroll's classic romp through the realm of rarefied nonsense "is, in a word, a book of that extremely rare kind which will belong to all the generations to come until the language becomes obsolete" (Carpenter & Prichard, 102). "The book's droll illustrations, exuberant fun and lunacy combined with logic captivated children, and this revolutionary fantasy achieved immediate and enduring success... Carroll recognized the child's inner fears, wishes, intelligence and imagination. He unleashed thousands of children's minds and imaginations and invited them to laugh" (Silvey, 123-24). Williams 44.

        The Belton Estate

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1866. First and Second edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of this quite difficult-to-find Anthony Trollope triple-decker, being a mixed edition in mixed bindings. Volume I and Volume II are of the first edition and Volume III is stated to be the second edition (but in reality is part of the first edition, second printing). The novel centers on the unsophisticated but golden-hearted farmer, Will Belton, a distant cousin of Clara Amedroz who occupies the Estate with her aged father. Belton becomes heir to the Estate upon the suicide of Clara's spendthrift brother, Charles, and, while visiting the Estate, falls in love with Clara who, in turn, is in love with Captain Aylmer, a rather cold up-and-coming Member of Parliament to whom Clara becomes engaged. While the young Henry James described The Belton Estate as being "a stupid book, without a single thought or idea in it ... a sort of mental pablum", Nathaniel Hawthorne's general description of Trollope's novels as "solid, substantial, written on the strength of beef and through the inspiration of ale..." is a more apt description of this work. Noted by Sadleir as being one of the scarcest of all of Trollope's works, the novel does not often appear on the market in the original triple-decker format and sets with each volume in first edition, first printing are scarcer still. [Three editions -- i.e. printings, in the case at hand -- of the novel were issued in the triple-decker format. Although dated "1866", the first printing was issued in 1865 and the second and third printings were issued in 1866. Nicely, the title page in Volumes I and II of this set bear a prior owner's contemporary signature dated 1885.] Sadleir states that first editions, first printings of the novel in any form are rare, that copies in original cloth are very rare, and that he never had seen a copy of the novel offered in a bookshop or at auction. Consequently, this mixed set, the first two Volumes of which are first edition, first printing, presents a good opportunity for the collector to obtain a scarce triple decker at a reasonable price. (The pages in Volumes I and II have been trimmed -- leaving ample margins -- and a binder could put the set in uniform bindings of a uniform size.) Interestingly, Trollope intended that the novel be issued in 2 volumes rather than in 3 and, in his schedule of returns earned from his work noted by his entry for The Belton Estate: "surreptitiously printed in three volumes". A Very Good copy of a scarce Trollope triple-decker novel of which Sadleir stated: "The Belton Estate in first edition, through some hazard of publishing history which I cannot explain, has simply disappeared." A Very Good copy of one of Trollope's scarcest works. QUITE SCARCE.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1866. Octavo. Finely bound by The Chelsea Bindery in crimson morocco, titles and Alice motifs to spine, raised bands, single rule to boards, Alice devices to boards, twin rule to turn-ins, dark green endpapers, gilt edges. Illustrated by John Tenniel. The occasional light blemish, an excellent copy in a fine binding. First published edition, and a beautifully bound copy. Famously, the 1865 first printing of Alice was withdrawn on account of Dodgson's objections to the printing of Tenniel's engravings. The book was re-set by Clay's for publication by Macmillan sometime around the beginning of November 1865, while the rejected 1865 sheets were given a new tipped-in title and re-issued by Appleton's in New York in April or May 1866.
