        Le fond du sac, ou recueil de contes en vers et en prose & de pieces fugitives

      Paris: Leclere (pr. Lyon: Louis Perrin) 8vo (20 cm, 7.8"). xli, [3], 172, [2] pp.; 12 plts.. 1866 Nogaret (1740?-1831) was perhaps more noted as France's theatrical censor or as the Freemason responsible for various Masonic hymns than as an author — with one exception, that being his story about an automaton created by a man named Frankenstein, predating Shelley's by almost 30 years. In the present collection (originally published in 1780), he gathers some of his own poems, short stories, and literary essays, including "La Main Chaude," "Délire bachique," and "Bouquet à Jean" along with pieces by other contemporary hands. This is => one of only 30 copies printed on papier de Chine, this example with an extra suite of plates bound in offering a second state of the frontispiece and the 11 headpiece engravings by Duplessis-Bertaux. Binding: Contemporary signed blue morocco, covers framed in gilt triple fillets with gilt-stamped arabesque central medallion surrounded by a frame of gilt double fillets with gilt-stamped corner fleurons, spine gilt extra, with gilt dentelles and marbled paper pastedowns; lower edge of front dentelle stamped "Allô" (Paul Charles Allô, 1823?-90). All edges gilt. Original slim, tricolor silk bookmarker laid in. Binding as above, spine gently sunned, joints and extremities rubbed, area of light discoloration to each cover at joint, back cover with small scuffs; front hinge (inside) tender. Front pastedown with unidentified bookplate reading "Exploranda est veritas" (name effaced); back free endpaper with institutional rubber-stamp and note of proper deaccession. Bookmarker separated and laid in, as above, with offsetting on either side; scattered light foxing. Volume now housed in maroon cloth?-covered clamshell case partially lined with marbled paper. => Interesting 19th-century French belles-lettres, beautifully produced, here in a beautifully bound example with the bonus suite of plates.

        Death-Bed of Lincoln, April 15, 1865

      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). Photograph by John Goldin of Littlefield's painting, on printed mount. Image 8 1/2 x 13 3/4 in.; mounted to 13 x 17 in

        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." (J.P. Humea, A.S. Chekeb and A. McOran-Campbellc: How Owen 'stole' the Dodo...)

        PINE MOUNTAIN

      [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). 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.

        Idiocy: and its Treatment by the Physiological Method.

      New York: William Wood & Co., 1866 - Octavo. Original brown pebble-grained cloth, title gilt to spine, blind panelling to the boards. A little rubbed and sunned, neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down. First edition of the first book published in America dealing with the care and institutional management of those with learning disabilities. 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]

        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.

        The DEAD LETTER [as Serialized in] BEADLE's MONTHLY, A Magazine of To-Day, Vol I ONLY [January to June]

      New York: Beadle and Company, 1866. First Edition. Cloth. Very Good. First Edition. IV, [5]-576 pages. 8vo. Publisher's brick colored cloth. Stain at base affecting all three panels. Christmas 1866 gift inscription on front flyleaf. Cloth. Contains the first six parts ONLY of the Dead Letter, an important serial mystery, found on pages 8, 105, 212, 309, 399, and 501. Here bound in the publisher's cloth binding, with each month's front page included but lacking (we presume) individual wrappers for the issues, and with the addition of a volume title and contents page. Additional parts of the story were serialized in subsequent volumes. "One of her most important contributions to American literature was The Dead Letter, published in 1864 under the pen name Seeley Register, and credited as the first detective novel. Her later years were devoted to humor and sensational romances." (American Women's Dime Novel Project) The American Women's Dime Novel Project notes other pseudonyms of Mrs. Victor, several of which also appear in this bound volume. We note "First and Last, A Love Story" by Rose Kennedy, "Moonlight, A Poem" and "Under a Shadow, A Story" by Mrs. M. V. Victor, "Learning to Skate. A Story" and "Who Stole the Spoons, A New Year's Day Episode" by Mrs. Mark Peabody. While this might seem like a lot of exposure in six months for a single writer, it should be noted that Beadle and Company, the publisher, was a new venture by Metta Victor's husband and editor Orville J. Victor. Even so, the years have shown that Metta Victor was not only a good writer, but an important one in American fiction.

        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: Published by John Sherer, 1866. - [4]pp. plus twelve pages illustrated with various chromolithographed images relating to Masonic ceremonies. Large folio. Recent half calf and cloth, original gilt leather label preserved on front cover cover. Slight paper loss, not affecting text, at bottom of title, expertly filled in. Light foxing and some noticeable thumb-soiling, some pencil and ink notations annotating the images. Very good. An incredibly 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, in order 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 listed 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."
