Lindley (1840 -1873), British officer, writer and adventurer, who fought for the Taiping insurgents in their rebellion against the Manchu dynasty, one of the largest and bloodiest civil wars in history. The Taiping Rebellion (1850-64), was instigated by Hong Xiuquan and his followers, whose goal was to create a "Heavenly Kingdom" in China, with Christianity as the official religion. Lindley was a Royal Navy officer stationed in Hong Kong who resigned his commission in 1860 to work for a Taiping general as an artillery instructor. He also became a spokesperson for the cause, courting Western support and procuring weapons and supplies. His wife, Maria, the daughter of the Portuguese consul at Macau, served in the rebellion as a sniper, and was killed in an ambush. Lindley remained in China until the fall of the Heavenly Kingdom in 1864. Two years later he wrote this work, the only detailed account written of the Taiping Rebellion from the rebels' perspective.Two volumes, royal 8vo: Vol I, xvii, (iii), 424pp; Vol II: vii, (i), 425-842, complete.

The firm issued a portfolio containing 12 oversized albumen prints, titled "Fotografiska bilder från första allmänna Skandinaviska Industriutställningen i Stockholm".

        The Soldier of Three Queens: A Narrative of Personal Adventure

      London: Saunders, Otley, and Co.,, 1866. 2 volumes octavo. Original red pebble-grain cloth, title gilt to spine, blind panelling to the boards, publisher's device in gilt to the centre of the upper boards, mid-green surface-paper endpapers. A little rubbed, spines a touch sunned, slight separation at the lower edge of the spine of volume I, both volumes with mild lean, volume I very slightly shaken, pale toning. First edition. Extremely uncommon - COPAC has BL, NLS, Oxford and Cambridge only - account of military service in the Miguelite and Carlist Wars, in India and in the Crimean. Henderson's father died heavily in debt, forcing him to seek his fortune in the merchant service. Encountering preparations for the expedition against Don Miguel, he attempted to join Colonel Bacon's corps, but "was for along time baffled" (author's Introduction), becoming instead " a sort of amphibious adventurer after the manner of the men who followed Garibaldi to South America." However, during his time at sea he had "the good fortune to be present when several rich prizes were captured," and was "one of those who took part in the action off Cape St. Vincent, in which the late Admiral Sir Charles Napier (then in his palmiest days) captured the Miguelite fleet." Returning to England when the war was over, he joined a cavalry regiment of the British Auxiliary Legion and "served until the termination of the war of succession in Spain." Back home he "became mixed up with some very fast gentlemen among the sporting celebrities of the day," rode steeplechases as a gentleman jockey, drove a fast coach on the Brighton Road, and frittered away his Iberian prize money. "I found myself one fine morning about as well to do as when I embarked on my first trip to sea." He enlists in the 15th Hussars, becomes an instructor in the school of riding, "but having no interest, could not obtain a commission," and tired of the "monotony of garrison life," volunteers for India where he joined the 12th Lancers. After 6 years there in the riding department he "marched with that corps by the Overland Route from India to the Crimea - was present at the siege and capture of Sebastopol, and the subsequent operations between Eupatoria and Simpheropol." His brief account of his time there includes conversations with survivors of the Six Hundred. Contemporary armorial bookplates of George Robbins, to the front pastedowns, and a a quantity of informed marginalia, particularly relating to the account of the Carlist War. A very good copy of a highly desirable memoir of a mid-nineteenth-century freelance.

      New York: Bunce & Huntington. 1866. First. First edition. 46pp. Removed. Lacks the original printed wrappers. Small stab holes near spine, else a very good copy. A scarce defense of Whitman published after Whitman was dismissed from the Indian Bureau of the Department of the Interior because of the scandalous sexual nature of Leaves of Grass. Risking his own government officer, O'Connor helped regain Whitman a government position, as well as used his influence to keep the Attorney General from prosecutiing Whitman for the book. Whitman lived with O'Connor's family for five months, and was an almost nightly dinner guest for the decade that followed. .

      A. J. Tafel, Philadelphia PA 1866 - An attractive copy of this world famous hard-to-find cornerstone of American homeopathic literature of the 19th Century. We were unable to locate any First Editions in the world-wide market place, while numerous copies appear to be in libraries, universities & institutions. The binding is solid, Brown Half Morocco & Marbled Boards, with four raised bands, gilt spine titling crisp & fresh. Binding worn, but not abused, corners showing a bit. Text block is square & secure, binding tight & even. Front free endpaper lacking; first blank with a .75" tear at the fore edge, with creasing; likewise, this fault shows on the Title Page & the Preface, with creasing through a portion of the text. Rear endpapers spotted; 12 or so pages spotted; 20 pages with top corner slightly turned; only a bit of minimal finger spotting. Pages 5-6 with a 1"x .4" triangular bug hole, with several tiny holes adjacent, & pages 7-8 with a much smaller area likewise affected. Overall the text is quite clean & fresh. Count Adolphus Graph zur Lippe-Weissenfeld (1812-1888) was born in Germany on May 11, 1812. He emigrated to the United States in 1839, graduated from the Allentown Academy of the Homoeopathic Healing Art in 1841 & practiced with success, becoming a regular contributor to homoeopathic literature.

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

      Clarke & Co., Chicago 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 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

First published in twenty parts, of which the first seventeen were issued by Chapman & Hall, and the final three parts by Bentley. As for this book issue, with a different imprint in each volume, Sadleir says, "When Bentley took over ... he assumed the novel was to be published in one thick volume ... and accordingly prepared a title without volume number ... at the last moment Chapman & Hall insisted on a continuing share in the venture, and were so far able to enforce their claim, that a two-volume book set was hastily devised, divided as to title-page imprints between the rivals." Some light foxing throughout, covers a bit darkened and some light, professional cosmetic restoration to corners and spine ends, else very good, tight copies. Housed in a slipcase with leather label on spine and titles stamped in gold gilt. SADLEIR 2023a. GRAFF 3453. SABIN 69049.

        Ehon Taka Kagami [or Picture-Book Mirror of Hawks],.

      [Tokyo, 1866-80]. 5 volumes. Small 4to (230 x 160mm). With 83 full-page woodcuts. Stitched Japanese-style into orig. yellow paper wrappers, each vol. with a white paper title-slip printed in red. First and only edition. "...The book was published at Tokyo and the editor's name was Nakamura Sasuke... The 'Mirror of Hawks' is certainly a very comprehensive and instructive treatise on falconry. It is rare, only seven complete and incomplete copies having been traced in European libraries" (Schwerdt). /Kawanabe Kyosai (1831-89) was a Kano painter, printmaker, and illustrator, the son of a Samurai. At the age of six he entered the studio of Utagawa Kuniyoshi, and from the age of nine became a student of the academic Kano school, studying under Maemura Towa and then Tohaku Chinshin, who gave him the name "Toiku". He exhibited at the Vienna International Exposition in 1873, and at the first and second Paris Japanese Art Exhibitions of 1883 and 1884. In the early years of the Meiji period (1868-1912) he attained considerable popularity with his political caricatures, for which he was arrested and imprisoned in 1870. His famous "Kyosai Gadan" (1887), an attempt to show a variety of traditional Japanese and Chinese painting styles, was widely appreciated in Europe, and was issued with English captions for the export market. /Kyosai's "Ehon Taka Kagami" is the major resource on Japanese falconry, with wonderful woodcuts of hawks, field work, breeding, hoods, gloves, and other associated tools and items of equipment. It records the ancient Japanese methods of care, raising, and training of the Siberian Goshawk, considered the best variety for use in falconry since ancient times. //Harting 371.
