        The Story of the Telegraph in India

      London: E. & F.N. Spon,, 1866. Octavo. Original maroon sand-grained cloth, title gilt to spine and to the upper board, triple fillet panel in blind to the boards, brown surface-paper endpapers. Folding map. Spine a little sunned, overall slightly rubbed, ?inscription clipped from the head of the title page, first gathering a little spring, light toning, occasional foxing, a very good copy. First edition. Uncommon, just four locations on Copac - BL, Oxford, Cambridge, and NLS - OCLC adds MIT only. Adley dedicates the book to Robert Wygram Crawford, chairman of the Commons committee on East India Telegraphic and Postal communications, and also of The East India Railway Company, as another who has "ceaselessly advocated … measures indispensable to remedy the unhappily benighted condition of Telegraphic science and accommodation in India" (Preface). Adley had spent several years in the employ of the EIRC, as an assistant engineer on the Burdwan division in West Bengal, and for a year as resident engineer on the construction of the Raniganj division, he was later appointed Superintendent of the Telegraph Department of the line. In 1858 he had founded the Engineers' Journal and Railway and Public Works Chronicle of India and the Colonies, published in Calcutta, which he also edited. After a brief retirement in England, he returned to India in 1868 joining the Public Works Department of the Government of India. His first duty was the design of the Small Arms Factory at Dum-Dum, Bengal, for which he was highly commended by the Government. He was subsequently engaged in designing drainage and irrigation systems for the improvement of the famine and fever-stricken districts near the Hooghly. In 1873 he finally retired to England, his health undermined by years working in the marshes of Bengal. He died in 1896, aged 68.

        An album of early New Zealand photographs, watercolors, manuscript verse, and ephemera assembled by Miss Flaxman

      New Zealand, 1866-1870 - This delightful photograph and autograph album chronicles the world of young Miss Flaxman in New Zealand in the 1860s. Albums and scrapbooks assembled by women in the Victorian era have come under increasing scholarly scrutiny for the insights they provide into women’s public and private lives and thoughts. This 1860s New Zealand album, with dozens of photographs, original watercolors, manuscript poems, and printed ephemera, is a rare survival and a valuable resource for women’s studies. The album is highlighted by its splendid early New Zealand photographs. Three carte-de-visite photographs depict identified Maori: one is a portrait of two identified Maori women, the other two are of Paora Parau, a Maori chief from Poverty Bay who served in the native contingent of the military. The portrait of two Maori women has the backstamp of J. D. Wrigglesworth, Wellington. The album also contains twelve photographs of towns, landscapes, and buildings, including views of the town of Nelson, Maitai Valley, Te Ore Ore in Wairapa, and a house in St. Kilda. Several photographs are by Burton Brothers, the leading New Zealand photographer of the day. This charming album also contains six delicate watercolor landscapes and views of houses, presumably by Miss Flaxman, dozens of pieces of Victorian chromolithography, and numerous manuscript poems including a “Maori acrostic,” lines by Miss Flaxman’s friends, and poems by Poe, Browning, Tennyson, and others. Study of this album of photographs, manuscripts, drawings, and ephemera will yield valuable information of women’s lives in the 1860s. The album is especially noteworthy for its photographs. New Zealand photographs of this vintage, particularly portraits of identified Maori, are rare in the market. Summary of contents. This finely bound album contains the following objects. Names, dates, and places are often provided in inscriptions and captions. 21 photographs, mainly landscapes, city views, and houses 7 watercolors and pencil drawings, mainly houses and landscapes 37 manuscript poems ranging from a stanza to three pages 2 handmade paper flowers, pressed 26 pieces of Victorian color lithograph ephemera 2 engravings 2 pages of autographs in rectangles drawn in the form of visiting cards Provenance: Miss Flaxman, signed gift inscription to her dated 1867 (many of the photographs are inscribed and dated on the verso with the compliments of Capt.

        Canadian Scenery: District of Gaspe. Beautifully illustrated with tinted lithographs, from photographs by the author

      John Lovell, Montreal 1866 - (13 x 10 inches). Lithographed map of the district by Roberts & Reinhold after P. Murison, 20 tinted lithographed views on 19 leaves by Roberts & Reinhold after photographs by the author, 18 of the plates oval within black-line oblong borders with decorative corner-pieces printed in light brown. Publisher's green bubble-grain cloth, covers with decorative borders blocked in blind, with gilt lettering at the centre of the upper cover, modern cloth box. A fine copy of this rare work on the District of Gaspe on the eastern seaboard of Canada, bordered to the north by the St.Lawrence The introductory text is particularly interesting and the author writes with an unusual lack of formality and does not hold back from expressing his views. These are definitely partisan and aimed mainly at extolling the possible economic virtues of the area, mainly it seems to persuade the "Intercolonial Railroad" to complete the extension of the line through the district.

        FOUNTAIN SAVANNAH, GA. [Plate 51]

      [New York. 1866].. Albumen photograph from a negative taken in 1866, 10 x 13 inches, on original two-tone gilt-edged thin card mount, 16 1/8 x 20 inches, with plate title and photographer's credit. 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. DE RENNE, p.1317. HOWES B150, "b." SABIN 3462. Taft, PHOTOGRAPHY AND THE AMERICAN SCENE, pp.232, 486. George N.

      John H. Littlefield; Wm. Terry, Printer, Washington, D.C. 1866 - A published photograph of Littlefield's hyper-realistic Lincoln death-bed painting, each figure meticulously rendered from photographs. Littlefield studied law under Lincoln in 1858, stumped for him in his Presidential bid, and was rewarded with a position in the Treasury Department. After Lincoln's death, Littlefield invented this tableau of twenty-five people ranged around the death-bed, including Vice-President Johnson, Surgeon Charles Leale, and Mrs. Lincoln."The artist used photographs as models for the twenty-five people gathered in the death room, but his profile of the dying Lincoln shows a first-hand acquaintance" (Ostendorf, LINCOLN'S PHOTOGRAPHS, p. 279).

        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]

        Memoir on the Dodo (Didus ineptus, Linn.). With an historical Introduction by the late William John Broderip.

      London, Taylor and Francis, 1866. 4to. Orig. full cloth. Rebacked but orig. spine laid down with gilt lettering. Endpapers renewed. (6),55 pp., 12 lithographed plates of which 2 are handcoloured (one by H. Savary, "H. Savary pinx"). The large folded "reconstruction-plate" with a closed tear, no loss. Internally clean and fine. Inscribed to "Earl DeGreyt Ripon,/ with the Author's best respects.". Scarce first edition of the first scientific description of the extinct Dodo. Owen put the fossil bones together in the way he thought the bird would have looked, the way Savery portrayed it. Owen used an outline of the bird taken from the painting and arranged the bones inside it. This and his detailed scientific description of the bird were published in this book on the Dodo and cemented its image for generations to come."The discovery of the first fossil Dodo remains in the Mare aux Songes marsh, Mauritius, in 1865 resulted in a race to publish on the Dodo's post-cranial anatomy. George Clark, probable discoverer of the fossil site, sent consignments of bones initially to Richard Owen (British Museum), and subsequently to Alfred Newton, Cambridge, via Alfred's brother Edward, who was stationed on Mauritius. After receiving the first consignment, Owen intercepted material intended for Alfred, and abused his position to forestall any complaints from Alfred. Owen published on the Dodo first, while Clark was financially rewarded, but Clark's ensuing arguments over the site discovery with railway engineer, Harry Higginson, and attempt to cover up the abundance of Dodo bones, thus keeping prices high, concluded in a bitter rivalry that was never resolved between Owen and the Newton brothers."

      [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 recto at the lower right corner. Very good. Matted. This image was used by Barnard in his PHOTOGRAPHIC VIEWS OF SHERMAN'S CAMPAIGN (plate 30), but is here separately printed at a contemporary date in slightly larger format than the image in the book without clouds superimposed, and on a period mount with period printed caption. "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).

Under the influence of the teachings of Itard and Esquirol, both of whom he studied under, which stressed the humane treatment of the insane, Seguin developed methods for managing intellectual disabilities that emphasized education and physical training. "Seguin's system of training was based on the methodology of physiological education. It was his theory that idiocy (or feeblemindedness, as we term it today) is only a prolonged infancy, and that it could be overcome through the application of proper training methods. For a long time he cherished the belief that mental defect was curable. While later results showed this notion to be untenable, the same results did confirm the great value of his educational methods in improving the condition" (Deutsch Mentally Ill in America, p. 338). Seguin's programme at his Physiological School in New York City, where he stressed the importance of developing self-reliance and independence, was a major influence on the educational theories of Maria Montessori. An important and highly uncommon book. Garrison-Morton 4937. [Attributes: First Edition]

Lithographic view of Chicago by Louis Kurz from the series Chicago Illustrated with descriptive material by James W. Sheahan. Published in installments by Jevne & Almini (1866). Each of the thirteen installments, issued in paper wraps, contained four tinted lithographs printed by the Chicago Lithographing Company.

        Clergymen of the Church of England

      Chapman and Hall, 1866, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, First editionAn about Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original red cloth with beveled edges and with the front board lettered in gilt, complete with 24 pages of ads dated March 30, 1866 (spine darkened and worn at the head and tail, evidence of a prior label to the upper front board, moderate shelf wear); a collection of 10 Trollope Essays first published separately in the Pall Mall Gazette, describing the various Church Offices held by Clergymen in the Church of England. The book was published as part of a sort of companion to Trollope's Hunting Sketches (1865) and Travelling Sketches (1866) and was originally destined to be titled Clerical Sketches. Though properly referenced on page 3 of the catalogue, the catalogue also lists the book as "Clerical Sketches" on page 8 of the catalogue. Of these three "Sketches" volumes, Clergymen of the Church of England is quite the scarcest. This Volume is of special interest to the Trollope collector as it gives further elucidation to Trollope's famed Barsetshire novels. A Very Good copy of a book surprisingly scarce in the original cloth. SCARCE.

Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt, triple gilt rules at head and tail of spine and on covers, covers with round devices in gilt at centre, Alice on the front, the Cheshire cat on the back, dark green endpapers, gilt edges.

A very good copy. Frontispiece and 42 illustrations by John Tenniel. First edition, second issue: the first practically obtainable issue of the original sheets, with the Appleton cancel title page. Macmillan printed around 2,000 copies of the book in 1865, but both artist and author were unhappy with the poor quality printing and Dodgson insisted it was reprinted before being published. Only two dozen or so copies of the 1865 first issue remain extant: Macmillan sold the rest of the print run to Appleton in New York who published the American edition using a new title page but with the first printing sheets from the London edition.
