        SANS MERCI; or, Kestrels and Falcons. In Three Volumes

      London: Tinsley Brothers, 1866. [Lawrence, George Alfred]. SANS MERCI [without mercy] or, Kestrels and Falcons. In Three Volumes. London: Tinsley Brothers, 1866. First Edition. A Near Fine copy in original publisher's blue ripple-grain cloth, gilt, showing only the most minor abrasion to the boards; we doubt many first editions of this title still exist much less an example in this condition. OCLC notes only four copies worldwide in institutional collections. George Alfred Lawrence (1827-1876) was a sensation novelist of a different ilk than Wilkie Collins or M. E. Braddon. His protagonists were often, if not always, men who were equally skilled at fighting, riding, hunting, killing, truth-seeking, and wooing. Not one to shirk a challenge himself, Lawrence sailed to America to fight for the Confederate Army (he was captured and shipped back to England). Lawrence is little read today but he created the original inspiration for the "Beau Geste" character, that self-sacrificing, dashing, honorable crusader who often fought for lost causes usually on behalf of some wronged maiden. In short, Lawrence may be credited with creating today's iconic literary "action hero." This novel takes place in the hazardous English countryside; the title of this book (which suggests birds of prey flying mercilessly at each other talons at the ready) is a metaphor for the evil lawyers and other such villains who are trying to destroy our heroic protagonist's honor and livelihood and romantic prospects with fair maiden. Horse racing, gambling, and several violent fighting scenes also keep things lively. The publisher, Tinsley, is particularly known for the low survival rate of their three-decker first editions.. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine.

        7 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Paris, 1866-1868.. Zus. 23 S., 8°.. Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr.

        Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies

      London: Day & Son, Limited,, 1866. The First Collected Edition of the Dramatic Works. A reproduction in exact facsimile of the Famous First Folio, 1623, by the newly-discovered process of photo-lithography, executed, by express permission of Lord Ellesmere and the Trustees of the British Museum, from the matchless copies in Bridgewater House and the National Library, at the suggestion, and under the superintendence of H. Staunton. R. W. Preston, Photo-Lith. Folio (387 × 240 mm). Contemporary red half-morocco, spine gilt-tooled in compartments with a brown morocco title label, marbled sides with double gilt rules, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Engraved portrait to title. Extremities somewhat rubbed and darkened, but all sound, attractive and in very good condition. Includes, laid in, numerous newspaper clippings concerning the Shakespeare Folios, in particular documenting their astronomic rise in value. The first photo-accurate facsimile of Shakespeare's First Folio, here in a handsome contemporary binding. Though not the earliest facsimile, this was the first made using photo-lithography, whereas the others had been created as type facsimiles. The facsimile is itself historically interesting insofar as it was printed just as the Victorian obsession with the Bard began to grip the imagination of the middlebrow English, and was used by most of the Baconians in their attempts to research and demonstrate the cyphers, acrostics, hints and visual clues put into the composition of the Folio to reveal the true author of the plays.

        Autograph letter to Patrick Proctor Alexander discussing the philosophy of JOHN STUART MILL, Oxford, March 22nd 1866.

      - An important unpublished letter by the leading Victorian philosopher H.L. Mansel (1820-71), first Waynflete Professor of Moral and Metaphysical Philosophy at Oxford, casting interesting light on contemporary responses to JOHN STUART MILL. Among the immediate counterblasts to Mill's critical 'Examination of Sir William Hamilton's Philosophy' (1865), was a book by Patrick Proctor Alexander called "An Examination of Mr John Stuart Mill's Doctrine of Causation in relation to Moral Freedom: with an Occasional Discourse on Saueteig" (1866). Alexander evidently sent an early copy of his book to Mansel, who was one of Hamilton's most eminent supporters. In this letter Mansel sends his response, which picks up approvingly on particular phrases and images in Alexander's book, as well as its general philosophical thrust: 'I am delighted with your examination of Mill's Theory of Freedom. It appears to me exactly to hit the weak point in the Determinist Theory, and to strip it of the disguise which alone gives it plausibility. I believe that nearly every great question now fermenting in the moral and religious controversy of the present day really revolves round this one central question; 'Are men's actions CAUSED in the same sense as physical phenomena?' If they are, God help the world, if there is a God to help it, which this hypothesis makes somewhat doubtful. I am not certain whether there is not more value in the 'froth' on Hamilton’s porter than you seem disposed to allow to it - I rather suspect that Hamilton would have put the 'Doctrines of the Conditioned' etc rather at the bottom of his philosophy than at the top; and in that position they are not so easy to blow away. I have said something in defence of Hamilton's philosophy in this respect in the ‘Contemporary Review'. Saueteig is intensely Carlylesque, and would I think be highly appreciated by the great man himself.'. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: cream laid paper folded once to make 4 sides (each side 182mm x 112mm), first side topped with small blindstamp of the Mansel family motto 'quod vult valde vult' (what he wishes he wishes fervently), approximately 225 words in legible brown ink.

        Autograph letter signed.

      London, "1 Modenas Villas Maitland Park", 26. IX. 1866.. 8vo. 3½ pages on bifolium (remnants of paste to blank lower half of p. 4, minor soiling to p.1, puncture to vertical centre fold).. To the Chartist Collet Dobson Collet, a review of the electoral system in the German states. Marx, evidently responding to an enquiry from Collet, lists ten significant points about the German electoral and parliamentary systems, beginning with the facts that members of the Prussian lower house are paid, but those of the electoral colleges are not, that election costs are paid out of provincial exchequers (adding an observation on the division of electoral districts: "Aliquot parts of the population choose each one member for Parliament"), and that there is no qualification for becoming a member of parliament or of the electoral colleges. A substantial paragraph is devoted to explaining the income-based composition of these electoral colleges: "The primary voters include all men from the age of 25 years who pay any direct tax. Certain direct taxes are paid by almost everybody, even servants"; these voters are divided into three electoral classes, depending on how much tax they pay, and "Each of the three electoral classes so formed elects the same number of secondary electors who form the electoral body that finally nominates the members of Parliament'". After explaining two other details of the Prussian system, Marx explains that 'The modes of election throughout Germany are far from uniform. Generally, however, the system of double elections prevails', though he notes that in Bavaria there is not the Prussian division into classes; in terms of probity and discipline, "Cases of electoral bribery are absolutely unknown in all German states", "The daily attendance of members of Parliament is rigorously enforced' and there exists no equivalent of the British 'count-out'; finally, ministers can take part in parliamentary debates even if not members, but cannot of course vote".

Framed in a beautiful modern Italian dark burl wood. Three distinguished Ball Players, portraits from life, in ball-play dress. No. 1, Tul-lock-chish-ko (He who drinks the juice of the stone). A Choctaw. No. 2. Wee-chush-ta-doo-ta (The Red Man). A Sioux, from the Upper Mississippi. No. 3. Ah-no-je-nahge (He who Stands on both Sides). a Sioux brave, from the Missouri. Amongst the forty-eight tribes which I have visited, I find the game of Ball everywhere played; and to my great surprise, by tribes separated by a space of three thousand miles, played very nearly in the same manner; the chief difference consisting in the different construction of the ball-sticks used - the modes of laying out the ground - and painting and ornamenting yheir bodies. In most of the tribes there are certain similar regulations as to dress, ornaments,&c., which no one is allowed to depart from; and in the three portraits given, in the illustration here, these particular and general modes are all set forth. Amongst all tyhe tribes I have visited in their primary condition, which their native modes are unchanged by civilized innovations. I find that every player mudt enter the play entirely denuded, with the exception of their breach-cloths and ornamented belts around their waists...leaving all their limbs free to act, without the least encumbrance of dress. And that they may feel and appreciate more to their advantage the ground that they run upon, they uniformly enter the lists to run in this desperate chase with the naked foot.

        Mother, Dear Mother, I Still Think of Thee. Sung by Blind Tom, at His Popular Concerts with the Greatest Success

      London: Hopwood & Crew, 1866. Sheet Music. Very Good. Sheet Music. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. 8 pages including the cover. Removed from a bound volume so slightly trimmed with rough left edge. Very scarce sheet music sheet music shows a full-length portrait of Blind Tom (Thomas Wiggins Bethune) at about 16 years of age standing next to a piano. Published in London, probably during Tom's European tour of 1866, which was coordinated by W. P. Howard. Tom, a blind autistic savant with incredible music ability, was one of the most famous performers of the mid-19th century. Born a slave in 1849, his mother (Charity Wiggins) and master (General James Bethune) discovered his inexplicable ability to mimic the most difficult piano performances immediately upon hearing them. By the time he was five years old, Tom was giving concerts and stunning critics with his virtuosity. As Bethune saw then end of the Civil War approaching, he contracted with Tom's parents to obtain guardianship in exchange for a home, subsistence, and monthly stipend for them and a salary for Tom. Bethune, his son, and finally his son's widow continued the arrangement and made hundreds of thousands of dollars from Tom's performances throughout the latter half of the 1800s.

      New York: D. Appleton and Co, 1866. First American edition. Appleton's 1866 edition of "Alice" using the English first edition sheets with a canceled title page. Late 19th century French binding in red quarter pebbled morocco with pebbled cloth boards, stamped "Gaetan Ronner 93 F. St. Honore Paris." Binding in nice shape with light wear at the extremities, but Near Fine overall. Marbled end papers, all edges gilt, retaining the half-title (with brief 1866 Christmas inscription). Pages with light, sporadic soiling, two pages, 15 and 17, with moderate soiling. A much more pleasing copy that any of the modern bindings stamped in immitation of the cloth boards, that seem to be flooding the market. & & The story of "Alice" is now something of legend among rare book collectors: telling of how Dodgson first spun the tale to amuse his young companions while boating and later how the sheets of the first edition were suppressed by the illustrator, John Tenniel, ostensibly due to poor printing quality. Some twenty-odd copies of the first English edition were released before the remaining 1,952 sets of sheets were sold across the pond to Appleton in NY. Despite these inauspicious beginnings, "Alice" cemented its place at the very forefront of children's literature with its creativity, veracity and charming simplicity.

        Intercolonial Exhibition Medal

      Melbourne: 1866-, 1867. Large copper medal, 220 mm. diameter, impressed "C. Summers Sculp." And "W. Calvert fecit"; medal in fine original condition, housed in original printed mount laid down on timber, 444 x 360 mm., the mount worn, with some restoration. A fine example of the elegant neo-classical work of Charles Summers, Australia's leading sculptor of the nineteenth century. Summers won many official commissions, including the supervision of the stone carvings for the Victorian Parliament House, the execution of the Burke and Wills memorial, the biggest bronze casting ever undertaken in Australia, and the design of this medal for the Intercolonial Exhibition. The maker of the medal was William Calvert, a Melbourne-based engraver, lithographer and draughtsman. Coincidentally his brother, Samuel Calvert, was a silver medallist himself at the Intercolonial Exhibition. This particular copper example of the medal was awarded to John Jones of Sheepshead, Victoria, probably a local blacksmith, for 'driving three picks' (Official Catalogue of the Intercolonial Exhibition 1866-7, no. 37, p. 48).

Hernach führten sie Gastspielreisen nach Ungarn, Spanien und Italien. Von 1865 bis 1873 sang sie an der Wiener Hofoper und war dort - wie auch in London - als "kroatische Nachtigall" bekannt. Zu ihren Hauptrollen gehörte u. a. die Königin der Nacht in der "Zauberflöte".

        The female blondin outdone! Grand morning performance on the narrow plank by the darling xxxx]

      Thos. Agnew & Sons, London 1866 - A delightful image of three fashionable young ladies and their younger siblings, all enjoying the benefits of a day beside the sea. An unusually large scale work from the famous illustrator of Dickens, Surtees, Thackeray and others. In 1862 John Leech 'essayed a series of so-called "sketches in oil," which were exhibited at the Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly, in June and the following months. These consisted of copies of a selection of his Punch drawings, which had been ingeniously enlarged, transferred to canvas, and coloured lightly in oils. As the artist advanced with this process he considerably improved it in detail, and his exhibition was a great success (it brought him nearly 5,000 pounds), to which a friendly notice by Thackeray (Times, 21 June) not a little contributed. His gift for seizing fugitive expression and for mentally registering transitory situation was extraordinary. Long practice had made it unerring in its way, and Leech perhaps wisely concentrated his attention upon these points. Yet he possessed, like Keene, a marvellous faculty for landscape, and in many cases the backgrounds to his sketches are in themselves of striking beauty. No words define his general position in art better than Mr. Ruskin's: His work contains the finest definition and natural history of the classes of our society; the kindest and subtlest analysis of its foibles, the tenderest flattery of its pretty and well-bred ways, with which the modesty of subservient genius ever immortalised or amused careless masters. ( DNB ). Here a teenage girl in a great, round crinoline skirt that balloons in the wind walks a thin plank that leads to a bathing booth, while her friend (sister?) watches impassively, the mother reads her book and the little children play oblivious to the little contest going on nearby. Chromolithograph, on original mount. Title and credits trimmed from bottom margin of mount.

        Garfield?s copy of the rare printing of his remarks in the House of Representatives on the first anniversary of Lincoln?s assassination ? his words were used to memorialize him after his own assassination 16 years later

      The first Presidential memorial library, completed at the Lawnfield estate in Ohio by the widow of James Garfield four years after his assassination, houses almost 3,000 books that were used and treasured by the 20th president. Books were a scarce commodity to young James, who lost his father before the age of two, and was raised by his mother who struggled to maintain a humble existence. Both James Garfield and his wife Lucretia were voracious readers and amassed a large collection of books and pamphlets. Some twenty years ago, several dozen of his books and pamphlets were de-accessioned, and one of these is described below:Pamphlet, ?Remarks of Hon. Jas. A. Garfield of Ohio in the House of Representatives, April 14, 1866, In Memory of Abraham Lincoln,? four pages, 5? x 8?. Washington, D.C.: Hudson Taylor, Printer, 1866. Stamped signature ?J.A.

        Fine example of President Johnson's amnesty oath ~ granting a general pardon to all citizens of the southern states on condition of their taking an oath of loyalty following the rebellion with reference to the emancipation of slaves

      Printed document signed by William Wilson, a resident of Columbus County Arkansas, one page, 8" x 6", January 8, 1866. Headed: "Amnesty Oath, Under Proclamation of the President of the United States, Dated May 29, 1865", whereby the individual taking the oath swears "in the presence of Almighty God, that I will henceforth faithfully support, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Union of States hereunder: and that I will in like manner, abide by and faithfully support all laws and proclamations which have been made during the existing rebellion with reference to the emancipation of slaves - so help me God". An amnesty oath is a general pardon, especially for political offenses against the government. Those individuals who took the oath secured citizenship in the government of the United States, with all privileges incident to such status. Arkansas seceded from the United States, by Resolution, dated May 6, 1861, and two weeks later was admitted to the

        Opposed to war, Douglass "can love even an Enemy."

Fine condition.In an address he delivered in London on May 19, 1846, Frederick Douglas had said, in part, "I am opposed to war, because I am a believer in Christianity...The first gleam of Christian truth that beamed upon my dark mind, after having escaped the clutches of those who held me in slavery, was accompanied by the spirit of love...I could not have injured one hair of the head of my worst enemy..." 1866 was an eventful year for Douglass and Black Americans. In the summer of 1866, Congress passed two bills over the president's veto. One, the Freedmen's Bureau Bill, extended the powers of the government agency that had been established in 1865 for the purpose of providing medical, educational, and financial assistance for the millions of impoverished southern Blacks. Congress also passed the Civil Rights

        Autograph Letter, Signed, As Chief Justice of the Supreme Court

      1866. Chief Justice Chase Discusses Reconstruction with the Wife of a Civil War General Chase, Salmon P. [1808-1873]. [McDowell, Helen (1826-1891)]. [Autograph Letter, Signed, As Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, To Mrs. Irvin McDowell]. Washington, 24 April 1866. Leaf folded to form four-page 5" x 8" bifolium, written in ink. Light toning, two horizontal and one vertical fold lines. Tear to ends of vertical fold, otherwise fine. * "I CANNOT HELP FEELING GRAVE CONCERN FOR THE COUNTRY, Chase tells Mrs. McDowell. He fears "new convulsions" from former slave owners restored to prominence by President Andrew Johnson's lax reconstruction policies. "How strange it seems, this extensive change which has happened in these last four years! How wonderful the transition and the events: and yet how little the wiser we seem to be for them all. To me it's been as if the very same elements of disturbance were being permitted, and in new names & character to prepare new convulsions. I cannot help feeling grave concern for the country; and should be really heartsick if I did not remember that God rules; & that God is Love, and that thousands of prayers continually go up before Him from sincere & devoted hearts that He will bring Good out of apparent evil. The controversy between the President & Congress is greatly to be deplored. Doubtless there are faults on both sides; but I think most on his. He is a Unit, Congress a Plural....and a very little consideration would have availed all our trouble." Helen McDowell was the wife of General Irvin McDowell [1818-1885], the General best known for his defeat in the First Battle of Bull Run, the first major battle of the American Civil War. Mrs. McDowell played an important role during the war through her work for the Sanitary Commission, the forerunner of the American Red Cross.

        Felix Holt The Radical

      Edinburgh: William Blackwood and Sons, 1866 Three volumes. First edition, in Carter&#39;s "A" binding (the earliest), with half-titles, 24 (4+20_ pages of publisher advertisements at the rear of Vol. III (not mentioned in Sadleir). Publisher&#39;s cinnamon cloth, decorative borders stamped in blind to the boards, spines lettered in gilt, pale yellow coated endpapers. An excellent set, with some light wear to the extremities, some rubbing to the hinges, faint spotting to the spines, bright gilt, former owner&#39;s bookplates to the front pastedowns, a few faint spots of scattered spotting to the otherwise bright and clean pages. A near fine, unsophisticated set. Felix Holt the Radical is a social novel by Mary Anne Evans, a top writer of the Victorian Era who chose to write under a male pseudonym so that her works would be taken more seriously. In addition to writing novels, she edited and contributed to the left-wing journal The Westminster Review as one of the only female editors of her time. Her novels were praised for being socially and politically conscious and realistic depictions of country life. In Felix Holt, Eliot examines the social changes that occurred in the English countryside as a result of the Frist Reform Act of 1832, which reformed Parliament to reflect the new urban and rural dynamics that resulted from the Industrial Revolution. Rather than explain the events leading up to this reform, Eliot focuses on how public political policies affect the private lives of rural Englishmen. Felix Holt tells the story of a tumultuous election in the fictional town Treby in the English Midlands, a small village previously unaffected by political goings-on that has been thrust into political turmoil by the Reform Act. Published around the time of the Second Reform Act of 1867, which extended enfranchisement to the working class, nearly doubling England&#39;s number of eligible voters, Felix Holt is a retrospective text that considers past legislation in juxtaposition with the new reform.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

      Wien, Kaiserlich-Königliche Hof- und Staatsdruckerei, 1864 &#150; 1866. - Geologischer Teil der Berichtsserie über die von der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien initiierten Forschungs-Weltreise der österreichischen Fregatte Novara unter dem Kommando des Kommodore Bernhard von Wüllerstorf-Urbair, der von namhaften wissenschaftlern wie unter anderem dem Geologen Ferdinand von Hochstetter und dem Zoologen Georg von Frauenfeld begleitet wurde. Es handelte sich um die erste Weltumsegelung eines deutschsprachig geführten Schiffes. Ausgiebige geologische Untersuchungen, insbesondere auf der Sankt-Paul-Insel, den Nikobaren und auf Neuseeland schufen wesentliche Grundlagen für die künftige geologische Erforschung dieser Weltregion. Insbesondere die durch Hochstetter vorgenommenen Kartierungen und Lagerstättenuntersuchungen in Neuseeland schufen Voraussetungen für die spätere durch, der bis zum Oktober 1859 in Neuseeland blieb, gaben den Startpunkt für die spätere genauere geologische Erforschung dieses Landes. Die während der Expedition vorgenommenen meereskundlichen Untersuchungen, insbesondere im südlichen Pazifik, erbrachten zukunftsweisende Forschungsergebnisse auf den Gebieten der Ozeanographie und Hydrographie. Neben einer dreibändigen allgemeinen Reisebeschreibung wurden die wissenschaftlich-fachlichen Ergebnisse der Reise in mehreren großformatigen, reich illustrierten Fachbänden präsentiert, die allerdings nur in wenigen Exemplaren erschienen und heute sehr selten sind. Der hier vorliegenden &#132;Geologische Theil" teilt sich in zwei Bände mit jeweils zwei Abteilungen: Erster Band (2 Abteilungen in 2 Bänden): Erste Abtheilung: Geologie von Neu-Seeland. Von Dr. Ferdinand von Hochstetter. XLVI, 274 S. sowie Kartenanhang.

Mit XXVI lithographierten Tafeln (auf Pappe) im Anhang. Zweiter Band (2 Abteilungen in einem Band): Erste Abtheilung: Geologische Betrachtungen. XIV, 162 S Mit 5 teils farbigen, teils ausfaltbaren Tafeln (darunter eine Chromolithographie) und 33 Holzschnitten. Zweite Abtheilung: Paläontologische Mittheilungen. S. 163 &#150; 268.
