        Manuscript Outlining Spanish-Chinese Parameters for Cuba's Coolie Slave Trade

      Havana - Cuba, 1866. A substantial and significant signed document from the Spanish Royal Court which precludes reveals content of the forthcoming treaty which would eventually be decreed in December 1868, and which created a framework for 'coolie' slavery in Cuba. Madrid, 5 May 1866. Manuscript document by Canovas del Castillo, Spanish Royal Minister of Colonial Affairs and Overseas Territories (later Prime Minister of Spain), addressed to Francisco de Lersundi y Hormaechea, Spanish Captain General (Governor) of Cuba, who in turn signed the document upon receipt in Havana, Cuba, 3 June 1866. 8vo. 13 pages in manuscript, written double-sided on seven leafs of the minister's stationery, measuring approximately 21cm x 15,5cm. Four leafs are embossed with a government office stamp and watermarked 'Ante Serra'. Text is in Spanish. Age-toning to extremities primarily, otherwise in very good condition. Responsible for the governing of Spanish colonies, Spain's Minister of Overseas Territories Antonio Cánovas del Castillo, herein outlines provisions of the imminent treaty to be ratified in Madrid, specifically that Chinese labourers must be voluntarily conceding, not military deserters, nor caught against their will. Instructions to protect the 'colonos' who would be emigrating to the foreign countries, or Spanish colonies, in this case Cuba, include health and safety matters, fair treatment, and so forth. To ensure the continued goodwill of Chinese authorities, demonstrable efforts were made to prevent abuse and subsequent uprisings. Contractual obligations, wages, legal status, particularly for those who might remain in Cuba after completing their contracts, are mentioned as items to be specifically addressed with the official document. .

        A 4pp ALS from General Charles Gordon while building the forts that guard the Thames

      "Written from Gravesend addressed to Nugent dated January 14, 1866 reads in part, ""Since I wrote, the foreign officer applied for an officer to build the Consulates in China and Japan and Corpsman has taken it. The berth will be for about two or three years. No one is around to succeed him at W. office. Division comes back next month and I expect he will succeed in J.B. - which case I so not think Jervois will stay at W. Office for he has involved himself with granite too much as to render it difficult to retract. Ward has come back, but only to complete a certain term when he will leave & go back to Australia . . . Very bad news from Olivia, although not confirmed positively, it appears they have dismissed Hart! This and other indications look as if they were indeed to give trouble to us. There are two parties in China as in Japan. The one favorable to . . . and which is the weakest, and the other unfavourable to . . . which is the strongest . . . I know no details of Hart's dismissal, it has evidently been very sudden. I did not understand his . . . paragraph unless he had some . . . The forts are in status quo and not likely to be touched. I will conclude this . . . with and will write Dr. whenever I have any news. Believe my dear Nugent Yours very sincerely, C. Gordon."" The Hart mentioned could be Sir Robert Hart who was appointed Inspector General of China's Imperial Maritime Custom Service to collect customs duties for the Chinese Government. General Gordon lived in Gravesend during the construction of the Thames forts. For six years he devoted himself to the welfare of the towns poor boys, establishing a Sunday school and providing food and clothes for them from his Army wage. In command of the Royal Engineers from 1865-71, he was responsible for the forts that guard the Thames downstream from Gravesend, New Tavern Fort in the town, Shornemead Fort on the south bank, and Coalhouse Fort on the north. Lt. Col. William Drummond Jervois R.E Jervois joined the army in 1839, and was educated and commissioned as a Royal Engineer. After service in South Africa, he became an expert on land-based fortifications of cities against naval attack, and proposed several options for a ring of defenses around London. In 1864-1865, he reviewed fortifications in Canada, submitting what became a politically controversial report that stated that the Great Lakes and Upper Canada were not defensible. Later in his career, he became governor of several colonies-the Straits Settlements (Penang, Singapore and Malacca), South Australia, and then New Zealand. The letter is most likely addressed to Lt. C. Nugent who led the 7th Company of Sappers and Miners."

        Klinik der Krankheiten des Kehlkopfes und der Luftröhre. + Atlas zur Klinik der Kehlkopfkrankheiten.

      . Wien, Wilhelm Braumüller, 1866, 8°, XII, 582 pp., 260 Abb., 1 gefalt. Taf.; (4), 24 chromlith. Tafeln von Anton Elfinger und Carl Heitzmann; 2 Halbleinenbände der Zeit.. Erste Ausgabe! - Ludwig Tuerck , "zu Wien, berühmter Neurolog und Laryngolog, geb. daselbst 22. Juli 1810, erlangte 1836 dort auch die Doktorwürde, widmete sich bereits als Sekundärarzt (1840) mit allem Eifer der Anat. und Pathol. des Nervensystems und publizierte als Frucht seiner Studien die "Abhandlung über Spinalirritation nach eigenen, grösstentheils im Wiener allg. Krankenhause angestellten Beobbachtungen" (Wien 1843). 1844 unternahm er eine Studienreise nach Paris und publizierte: "Ph. Ricord's Lehre von der Syphilis. Nach dessen klin. Vorträgen dargestellt" (Ib. 1846). In der für ihn von seinem Gönner Baron Tuerkheim im allgem. Krankenhause geschaffenen Abteilung für Nervenleidende, in welcher er als ordin. Arzt 13 Jahre lang wirkte, begründete er seinen wissenschaftl. Ruf, wurde jedoch erst 1857 zum Primararzt ernannt; er lieferte aber in dieser Zeit zahlreiche, sehr geschätzte Arbeiten, besonders in den Sitzungsber. der Akad. der Wiss., mathem.-naturwiss. Klasse. Ein Verzeichnis derselben ist in dem älteren Lexikon enthalten. 1857 begannen seine laryngoskop. Studien, die ihn von da an ausschliesslich beschäftigten. Wenn ihm auch nicht die Erfindung des Kehlkopfspiegels zu danken ist, so doch jedenfalls die prakt. Verwendung desselben für diagnostische und operative Zwecke, sodass die Geschichte der Laryngoskopie für immer an seinen Namen anzuknüpfen ist, nachdem er 1857 zum erstenmale mit Hilfe seines Kehlkopfspiegels dem Prof. Ludwig das Kehlkopfinnere eines Patienten seiner Abteilung gezeigt hatte. Alle seine bedeutenden Entdeckungen, Erfindungen und Verbesserungen auf jenem Gebiete publizierte er zuerst in der "A. W. m. Z.", hielt seit 1860 ununterbrochen Vorträge über Laryngoskopie und veröffentlichte: "Praktische Anleitung zur Laryngoskopie&quote;" (Wien 1860, mit 1 Taf.). 1861 verlieh ihm die Pariser Acad. des sc. einen Monthyon-Preis von 1200 Frcs., 1864 wurde er zum Prof. ord. ernannt und erschienen dann noch seine Hauptwerke: "Klinik der Krankheiten des Kehlkopfes und der Luftröhre u.s.w." (Ib. 1866, m. 1 Taf. und 260 Holzschn.) und &quote;Atlas dazu. In 24 chromolith. Taff. v. A. Elfinger und C. Heitzmann" (Ib. 1866). Unermüdlich wirkte er weiter bis an sein Lebensende, das, nach einem Leiden von nur wenigen Tagen, 25. Febr. 1868 eintrat. Aus seinem litter. Nachlasse, von C. Wedl zusammengestellt, erschien noch: "Ueber Hautsensibilitätsbezirke der einzelnen Rückenmarksnervenpaare" (Wien 1869; auch in den Denkschr. der k. Akad. der Wiss.). Sein Andenken wurde durch die 1868 im allgem. Krankenhause erfolgte Aufstellung seiner Büste geehrt; äussere Ehren sind ihm ausserhalb seines Berufskreises niemals zu Teil geworden." Pagel, Biograph. Lex., Sp. 1732-1734 - - On p.295 is a classic description of laryngitis sicca - "Türck's trachoma". - Garrison & Morton No.3273

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

      [Washington. Jan. 2, 1866].. Two photographs, each approximately 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Mounted to cards, 14 x 11 inches. 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.

        The Atmotic Ship. The Atmotic Ship by the Hon. W. Bland, M.L.C.

      David Mason, printer, Sydney 1866 - Single printed sheet measuring 570 x 445 mm., split at folds with slight loss of text (now carefully repaired and backed upon linen), a few tape-marks, good condition overall. Pioneering airship design in nineteenth century Sydney. Rare Sydney broadside promoting the 'Atmotic Ship' - an early steam driven airship designed to carry passengers.The Atmotic ship was the inspiration of Sydney surgeon and parliamentarian William Bland (1789-1868), who began his long and varied career as a naval surgeon. A duel in Bombay brought Bland to Australia in chains; here he gained some prominence as a vocal emancipist and effervescent member of the Sydney Town community. Throughout his life, Bland championed civil freedoms and worked extensively in the interests of the poor and disadvantaged.The Atmotic ship is essentially a self-propelled balloon fitted with a large deck capable of holding numerous passengers. It was to be driven by steam powered propellers and controlled with a simple steering apparatus. In this broadside, printed some 15 years after Bland patented his invention, the Atmotic ship is described and illustrated with four detailed plans. Various practical hazards and obstacles are broached, including the danger of the inflammable gas balloon exploding, and the alarming risk of lighting striking the vessel. On a more abstract plane, Bland discusses the possibility of 'barbarous nations of the earth' overwhelming the civilized world using fleets of Atmotic ships, but ultimately decides this risk is an acceptable price of progress.Possible uses for the Atmotic ship include astronomy, delivery of long-distance post, safe carriage of gold and gemstones, as well as exploring the interior of Australia and other inaccessible regions.This broadside is rare, copies are held in three institutional collections including the State Library of New South Wales and the National Library.

        Autograph Letter Signed on "Explorers Club," stationery, 8vo, New York, July 12, n.y.

      - Jackson likely writes to Martin S. Garretson, (1866-1955), known for his study of and advocacy for the American bison, also depicted in Garretson's moving photogravures. Jackson begins the letter to Garretson. "Otherwise a 'Sinful Maverick': I had intended delivering this little picture personally.but an urgent request from Wyoming to be out there for some sort of an affair this coming week, will keep me so busy.that I must rely upon the mail to do the work for me." Jackson then hopes his picture would find, "a place among the other 'old timers' ." He signs, "W. H. Jackson," and in parentheses adds, "(Pawnee Bill?)" Garretson was called the "Sinful Maverick," and given the age difference between the two men, Jackson would be the old timer. From 1870 to 1878 Jackson was the official photographer for the United States Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories. His photographs of the natural beauty of northwestern Wyoming, taken during the Hayden survey expedition of 1871, were exhibited in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. and credited with having influenced the U.S. Congress to establish Yellowstone National Park in 1872. After he retired in 1924 from commercial photography, he traveled back to Wyoming for public appearances. In his official retirement, Jackson returned to painting on Western themes. It is possible that our letter was written during this later period and the picture Jackson mentions is a painting for Garretson. Martin Garretson, as a young man, traveled West to work as a rancher at the time the bison population was becoming depleted due to expanding settlements on the American plains. Garretson sought to reverse the decimation of the bison herds and eventually became one of the founders of the American Bison Society. He later served as its Secretary and eventually headed the department of Heads and Horns at the Bronx Zoo. During that time, he conducted the majority of the research for his book "The American Bison" (New York, 1938), which remains a standard reference on the species. Jackson's self reference as "Pawnee Bill?", the American showman, suggests association to the showman of the same name as well as to his photographs of the Pawnee tribe.

      New York: Published by The Author. 1866. First. First edition. Reddish-brown cloth gilt. 556pp. Tiny early owner's name, corners a little rubbed and bumped, a very good or better copy with one signature slightly sprung, still an unusually nice copy of a very important, self-published book. Over 150 pages are devoted to baseball. Grobani in his definitive Guide to Baseball Literature characterizes this book under General Histories as G1 and comments: "Sketches of all National Association Clubs... The definitive history of early baseball." Almost always found in deplorable condition, this is a nice copy and very uncommon thus. .

He spend some time in the Sudan, and in February 1863 at Gondokro he met Speke and Grant on their return from an expedition undertaken with the same purpose during which they had reached Lake Victoria. They told Baker of some rumors they had heard of another great lake farther to the west. Baker then continued his journey, and after many adventures he first saw the great lake on 14 March 1864, and named it Albert N’Yanza (Lake Albert). With this discovery an answer had been found to the age-old question of the origin of the Nile. Baker was a man in the great imperial tradition of the Victorian age. He published many books on his various journeys and big-game hunting trips, and these books were some of the first to bring to Europe a picture of Africa as it really was" (Printing and the Mind of Man).Printing and the Mind of Man 357.

        Autograph Letter Signed on "Explorers Club," stationery, 8vo, New York, July 12, n.y

      Jackson likely writes to Martin S. Garretson, (1866-1955), known for his study of and advocacy for the American bison, also depicted in Garretson's moving photogravures. Jackson begins the letter to Garretson. "Otherwise a 'Sinful Maverick': I had intended delivering this little picture personally...but an urgent request from Wyoming to be out there for some sort of an affair this coming week, will keep me so busy...that I must rely upon the mail to do the work for me...." Jackson then hopes his picture would find, "a place among the other 'old timers' ...." He signs, "W. H. Jackson," and in parentheses adds, "(Pawnee Bill?)" Garretson was called the "Sinful Maverick," and given the age difference between the two men, Jackson would be the old timer. From 1870 to 1878 Jackson was the official photographer for the United States Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories. His photographs of the natural beauty of northwestern Wyoming, taken during the Hayden survey expedition of 1871, were exhibited in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. and credited with having influenced the U.S. Congress to establish Yellowstone National Park in 1872. After he retired in 1924 from commercial photography, he traveled back to Wyoming for public appearances. In his official retirement, Jackson returned to painting on Western themes. It is possible that our letter was written during this later period and the picture Jackson mentions is a painting for Garretson. Martin Garretson, as a young man, traveled West to work as a rancher at the time the bison population was becoming depleted due to expanding settlements on the American plains. Garretson sought to reverse the decimation of the bison herds and eventually became one of the founders of the American Bison Society. He later served as its Secretary and eventually headed the department of Heads and Horns at the Bronx Zoo. During that time, he conducted the majority of the research for his book "The American Bison" (New York, 1938), which remains a standard reference on the species.

        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 the mentally retarded. 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 mental retardation 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.;
