It' s Causes, Incidents And Results: Intended To Exhibit Especially Its Moral And Political Phases, With The Drift And Progress Of American Opinion Respecting Human Slavery From 1776 To The Close Of The War For The Union. Both Volumes Complete.

      O. D. Case & Co., Hartford. 1864 & 1866 - Complete restoration by a professional bookbinder. One-half new leather spine (natural leather) with raised bands (4) with gold titles on black. The rest of the restoration is using the original natural leather boards and endpapers. A very early history of events leading up to the U. S. Civil War written by Horace Greeley (1811-1872), founder of the New York Tribune newspaper and presidential candidate in the election of 1872. Greeley died before the electoral votes were counted - not knowing he had lost in a landslide. Greeley was not a friend of Grant or Lincoln but opposed slavery and supported the cause of the American Civil War. Out of this grew his book -The American Conflict - which is a history of events leading up to the Civil War as well as a history of the war itself from the side of the Union point of view. Volume I (1864) is a First Edition and has 648 pages plus many maps and illustrations. Volume II (1866) has 782 pages, also, with a multitude of illustrations and maps. Both volumes of this important early work of the Civil War are in Very Good condition. Rare in this condition. Volume I (1864) First Edition. Vol. II (1866). Book condition: Very Good. No dust jacket. Binding is: Hardcover. Each Volume 7 in. x 9 3/4 in. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Industritställningen i Stockholm 1866 / Industrial exhibition in Stockholm 1866]

      [1866] 1866 - Overzized albumen photo mounted on card board. Photo 43 x 34,5 cm. Card board 55,5 x 44 cm. The photo shows the main hall of the exhibition with "Molins fontän", here still in plaster. It was later iron cast and placed roughly at the same spot in Kungsträdgården. The photo might have been published by the firm Eurenius & Quist who was the official photographers of the exhibition. The firm issued several very large photos of the event. It might also be by Johannes Jaeger who executed a famous photo of the opening ceremony. Often called Sweden s first press photo, since a copy was delivered to the king within a couple of hours. Again it might be by someone else. You can see people sitting at the benches, some of them transparent since they were moving when the photo was exposed. Such a large photo required a long exposure time. Across the hall you can see a sign for the norwegian section of the exhibition. At the front is a sign with the company name "Bing & Gröndahl". A scarce photo in a very large format. The glass negative must have been quite a challenge to handle. A repaired tear in the lower left corner of the photo. Some dirt, foxing and creases to the card board. Some dirt to the verso. The photo with nice tonal range.

        Sport and Sportsmen: a Book of Recollections

      Hurst and Blackett, London 1866 - Octavo, frontispiece and illustrated title- page; a very good copy in contemporary half calf and marbled boards. First edition of a scarce collection of sporting memoirs, mainly set in England, Wales and the Scottish Highlands. However Stretton had been to the Victorian diggings in the 1850s, and his long final chapter gives a wonderful 60-page reminiscence of a kangaroo hunting expedition outside Melbourne with "King Tom" of the Yarra Yarra tribe in 1852. "Two Days with a Native Chief" is in fact quite a remarkable memoir for its period, showing considerable understanding not only of the skills of the Aboriginal people, but also some knowledge of and sympathy for the hardships endured by them throughout the period of white settlement. It is also a ripping yarn of exotic hunting. This title is not recorded by Ferguson, though he does note the same author's Memoirs of a chequered life (London, 1862).

Lindley (1840-1873) had been an Honorary officer in Chung-Wang's guards, a special agent of the Ti-Ping General-in-Chief, and a commander of the "Loyal and Faithful Auxiliary Legion" (title page).

        POETICAL WORKS OF LORD BYRON. Collected and Arranged, With Notes and Illustrations [with,] Moore, Thomas, editor. THE LIFE, LETTERS AND JOURNALS OF LORD BYRON. Collected and Arranged with Notes by Sir Walter Scott, Lord Jeffery, [et al].

      London John Murray 1852 and 1866 - Together 2 volumes. The Complete and Copyright Edition of the ‘Works’, and the New and Complete Edition of the ‘Life’. The ‘Works’ with fine steel engraved portrait of Byron at age 19 and an engraved pictorial half-title with vignette of Newstead Abby, both engraved by Finden, and four pages of autograph facsimiles. The ‘Life’ with Finden engraved portrait, vignette half-title featuring a differing view of Newstead Abby and seven engraved plates being portraits and views. Royal 8vo, each volume very finely and uniformly bound in antique full forest-green calf, the covers with double gilt fillet rules at the borders, inner stippled border in blind and with floral corner-pieces, the spines separated into six compartments by gilt laced raised bands, three compartments fully gilt decorated in an overlapping scallop motif additionally gilt rolled and lined, two compartments with central gilt tools of a flower-and-thistle design bordered by a gilt scalloped frame, ruled and additionally tooled in gilt and with a small gilt star in each corner, the remaining compartment with red morocco label gilt ruled and lettered, additional gilt lettering at the tails, board edges gilt decorated, marbled end-papers and page edges. viii, [4], 827, [1]; xix, [1], 735 pp. A very handsome set, fine with only a bit of very minor spotting to the prelims, much less then typically found, the bindings showing only minor age, quite attractive. BRYON’S COMPLETE POETICAL WORKS handsomely presented in an elegant period binding, beautifully preserved inside and out. This is a very fine production of Byron’s great Romantic poetry printed in double column with in fine ruled margins. John Murray had a particular interest in Byron and is largely responsible for publishing and promoting the author, as this fine one volume collection attests. If not for Murray’s efforts, it may have taken Byron works years, if ever, to reach the same height of popularity and fame. Moore’s memoir of his friend Byron is one of the most famous literary biographies in English literature. "It was exactly the biography which that age required: by no means complete or entirely authentic, nor claiming to be so, but presenting Byron in the light in which contemporaries desired to regard him and in every respect a model of tact and propriety. the work will rank as a classic, even though its interest be less due to the efforts of Moore"s own pen than to the charm of the letters which he was the first to give to the world" (Richard Garnett in D.N.B.)

        Relaçao de una Viagem a Venezuela, Nova Granada e Equador pelo Conselheiro

      - Bruxellas, A. Lacroix, Verboeckhoven et Cie., 1866, 22 x 16 cm., hol. piel, 393 págs. + 1 cuadro plegado + 7 págs. de notas musicales + 17 láminas + 12 mapas y planos, 6 de ellos plegados. (Muy ilustrada y bella primera edición. El diplomático brasileño Miguel María Lisboa fue Consejero del Emperador, Ministro de Hacienda y socio-fundador del Instituto Histórico y Geográfico Brasileño. Lisboa había entrado en el servicio diplomático en la década de 1830 siendo encargado para que estableciera relaciones diplomáticas con otros países latinoamericanos. Hasta ese momento, Brasil había permanecido virtualmente aislado en América del Sur, pero la guerra de los Estados Unidos contra México en los años 40 terminó por persuadir al Imperio brasileño de la necesidad de emprender una activa política exterior en América que intentara contrarrestar la creciente influencia de Estados Unidos. En su libro narra la expedición que emprendió en 1852 por Venezuela, Colombia y Ecuador describiendo detalladamente aspectos geográficos, históricos y socio-culturales de los tres países, los personajes que conoció, las costumbres y sus impresiones sobre ciertos temas. Es, sin duda, uno de los primeros libros de viajes escrito por un brasileño). AMÉRICA

Foote: ?I was just 16 in November, 1866 and the Pentland Rising in a green cover is my first work, printed by a fond parent.? In his bibliography of Stevenson, 1917, Prideaux states that The Pentland Rising was published at the end of 1866, in a small edition, of which the greater number of copies were bought up by his [i.e. Stevenson?s] father. In a short time it had become exceedingly scarce, and it was difficult to obain until March 27, 1899, when the copies which had formerly been in the possession of Stevenson and his mother, to the number of twenty, were thrown upon the market and sold at Sotheby?s by order of the executor [Beinecke 1].
