        PARADISE LOST. Illustrated by Gustave Doré. Edited, with Notes and a Life of Milton, by Robert Vaughan, D.D

      London: Cassell, Petter and Galpin, no date [c.1866]. One of the earliest issues with both England and America in the imprint and a particularly large copy. With 50 magnificent plates after engravings by Gustave Doré. Large, tall folio, in the publisher&#146;s original bright red cloth, the upper cover paneled in blind and boldly gilt lettered, the spine gilt lettered and the rear board paneled in blind. This is very probably the largest of the various examples printed and bound. lxii, 329 pp. A fine copy, internally extremely fresh and clean with only the lightest hint of the usually present spotting, and even this just occasionally, unusually firm and sturdy for the printing, the binding very handsome with bright cloth and bright gilt, rarely found so due to the massive size of the text-block, the boards with only very minor age mellowing and the rear hinge with just a bit of expert strengthening. A VERY HANDSOME COPY, FRESH AND CLEAN AND A VERY PLEASING PRESENTATION OF THIS GREAT WORK, NOT OFTEN FOUND IN ORIGINAL CLOTH.<br> John Milton&#146;s PARADISE LOST, one of the greatest works of the English language, is most appropriately met by the magnificent steel engravings of Gustave Doré. The powerful and mood-inspiring images make this one of the greatest issues of a true classic yet produced. The poem has remained one of the greatest classics of modern English vernacular, indeed some say, that it constitutes the beginning of modern English poetry and literature. This edition retains the classic marriage of illustration and verse and is particularly attractive in its pressing and design.

        The Paradise Lost of Milton

      London: Sampson Low, Son, and Marston,, 1866. With Illustrations by John Martin. Folio (370 × 260 mm). Contemporary red morocco by A. W. Bain, spine elaborately gilt in compartments with yellow morocco onlays, boards elaborately gilt-panelled with green morocco onlays, marbled endpapers, turn-ins and all edges gilt. 24 plates by John Martin. Binding rubbed and scuffed, some spotting to contents, particularly the edges of the plates but not usually affecting the image. A very good copy. A handsomely bound volume of Martin&#39;s Paradise Lost, originally published in 1827. John Martin&#39;s dramatic panoramas of Old Testament scenes achieved a "hold on the popular imagination&#133; unparalleled in his day" (ODNB). Disdained by the artistic establishment, he reached out to the public by staging paid viewings and selling prints of his monumental canvases, and he became the most popular artist-showman of the day. "Mezzotint is a medium peculiarly suited to Manichaean fantasies: the black void of the prepared plate, blackness scraped away to create forms and highlights. Paradise Lost, illustrated in two sets of mezzotints for the publisher Septimus Prowett in 1825&#150;7, was ideal material for Martin, who echoed Milton&#39;s solemnity while opening out his cadences in the imagery of groves and chases bathed in silvery light and an underworld where fires tongue the darkness and bridges span nothingness and Satan&#39;s armies infest the gloom. In mezzotint Martin&#39;s vision thrived" (ODNB).

        Prelude to Presidential Impeachment

      Washington, D.C. 1866 - Autograph Letter Signed as secretary of war, to Major General Henry W. Halleck on War Department letterhead. Washington, D.C. April 26, 1866. Edwin Stanton's woeful letter to Lincoln's former chief of staff, General Halleck, alludes to the difficulties of Reconstruction and the contention between Stanton and President Andrew Johnson. The conflict between Stanton and Johnson would soon give rise to America's first presidential impeachment trial, following what nearly amounted to a coup d'tat. Partial Transcript"How often you are in my thoughts it would be bootless if possible to tell. The events that have happened since we parted & are daily transpiring are as strange as what we passed through together. You are fortunately afar off and at peace, while I am still tugging at the oar as hopelessly & almost as painfully as a galley slave. The newspapers tell you all, & more of public events are happening, the upshot you can guess at as well as any body else. No one can do more than guess. In regard to military affairs there seems a pretty strong probability that Congress will pass no Army bill this session.St. Louis Board appointed by Grant to regulate Brevets has dissatisfied more than are pleased, but that result would follow any effort at promotion. I hoped to have the adjutancy for Scott, and succeeded at first, but it was countermanded by the President on the next day & given to Taylor."Historical BackgroundThe conflict between Stanton and Johnson played a major part in Congress' effort to impeach President Johnson. Congress passed the Tenure of Office Act on March 2, 1867, requiring Senate approval before the president could remove appointees - including cabinet members - from office. The legislation was specifically intended to prevent the ouster of Stanton. Johnson vetoed it, but his veto was overridden by Congress. The president's decision to fire Stanton was thus an act of defiance. Congress, of course, refused to confirm the suspension. After Ulysses S. Grant declined Johnson's offer to take over the Cabinet position, the president appointed Adjutant General Lorenzo Thomas. Stanton, in the meantime, and with the support of many in Congress, refused to accept the legitimacy of the dismissal and barricaded himself in the War Office. On February 24th, the House voted to impeach Johnson for "high crimes and misdemeanors." Stanton did not give up his post as Secretary of War until May of that year, after the Senate narrowly voted against the president's removal.The Tenure of Office Act was finally repealed in 1887 and in 1926 the Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional.Edwin M. Stanton (1814-1869) commenced his political life as an Ohio lawyer and antislavery Democrat. He served as U.S. Attorney General under President James Buchanan in the winter of 1860-1861 during which time he strengthened the Administration's resolve against secession. Appointed as Lincoln's Secretary of War in early 1862, Stanton brought civilian-style order to the Army and War Department, improving the efficiency of the armed forces. His earlier success as a Pittsburgh lawyer honed his skills in negotiation and communication, allowing him to work with Congress and the president to ensure appropriate involvement in the conduct of the war by each branch of government, as specified by the Constitution. Continuing in the cabinet of President Andrew Johnson, Stanton clearly articulated the Army's role as a major agent in the implementation of Reconstruction policies. Disagreements over Johnson's position on Reconstruction led to Stanton's ouster and eventually to Johnson's 1868 impeachment. In 1869, President Ulysses S. Grant appointed Stanton to the Supreme Court, but Stanton died before he could take the oath of office.General Henry W. Halleck (1815 -1872) replaced John C. Frmont as commander of the Department of the Missouri in November of 1861 after Frmont exceeded his authority in the position. Eight months l. (See website for full description)

        ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE MANNERS, CUSTOMS, AND CONDITION OF THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS WITH LETTERS AND NOTES WRITTEN DURING EIGHT YEARS OF TRAVEL AND ADVENTURE AMONG THE WILDEST AND MOST REMARKABLE TRIBES NOW EXISTING

      London: Henry Bohn, 1866.. Two volumes. 264; 266pp. 313 handcolored etchings on 180 plates, including three maps (one folding). Contemporary three-quarter red morocco and marbled boards; spines tooled with gilt devices of Indian heads, tomahawks, and peace pipes; gilt morocco labels; a.e.g. Very good. In a cloth slipcase. Deluxe issue of the tenth edition, one of "twelve or more" with the plates printed in outline and colored by hand. The London publisher, Henry Bohn, took over publication in 1845 and altered the title to that given above. What is important in this copy is the colored plates. According to Sabin (who knew Bohn quite well and was certainly in a position to be aware of the facts), "Mr. Bohn had twelve or more copies colored after the fancy of the artist who did the work, but tolerably well. Such copies are worth $60 a set." In fact, a set brought $24 at the Field sale in 1875. By comparison, a copy of the CATLIN&#39;S NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO... sold for only $1.50 at that sale. Howes disagrees with Sabin and states that various editions published by Bohn appear with the plates colored; however, given the quality of the work involved and the lack of any contemporary evidence amongst Bohn&#39;s advertising material of a more generally available colored issue, it would seem likely that Sabin is correct, and only about a dozen were produced. The plates themselves are clean, fresh, and very handsomely colored. It is impossible to identify the colorist, but it was quite possibly one of the Catlin copyists working in England at that time, John Cullum or Rosa Bonheur. The plates illustrate scenes of Indian life in the West, or are portraits of individual Indians. The book was and is one of the most widely circulated works on American Indians written in the 19th century, and the illustrations so beautifully presented herein remain the most important body of illustrative material for wild Indian life in the American West.

STRIKING 19TH CENTURY DARK BROWN MOROCCO, BEAUTIFULLY GILT, BY STIKEMAN (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), raised bands, spines intricately gilt in double-ruled compartments with elaborate inner frame of curls, volutes, and fleurons, marbled sides and endpapers, top edges gilt. With small oval portraits on the title pages. List of subscribers, among them bibliographer Joseph Sabin, at the end of volume II. Sabin 35058; Howes I-75. Leaves faintly browned at edges (as no doubt in all copies), boards a bit chafed, minor wear to joints and extremities (one corner slightly bumped), but still a handsomely bound set in excellent condition, the volumes showing no serious wear, and the text quite smooth and clean. This major work on the early history of the American theatre chronicles more than a century of the plays presented at the various New York houses and the performers who appeared in them. According to the "Oxford Companion to American Theatre," author Ireland (1817-98) has "filled the book with numerous useful biographical sketches and other background information." A retired businessman, Ireland devoted himself to the history of the stage, also producing two biographies of actors. The binding here is notable as an elaborately gilt product of the workshop of Henry Stikeman. According to the catalogue of the Frederick Maser Collection, during the period from the retirement of William Matthews to the establishment of the Club Bindery, there was no better binder in America than Stikeman, who exhibited "extraordinary skill . . . in design, inlaying, and tooling.".

Chemised and in a quarter red morocco slipcase with gilt spine lettering. An excellent copy of this fragile item. "This little pamphlet, which was written when Stevenson was barely sixteen, was the outcome of the interest taken by him in the stories of the Covenanters that he had learned in childhood from his nurse, and that, at an even earlier age, he had endeavored to express in the form of fiction. It was published at the end of 1866, in a small edition, of which the greater number of copies were bought up by his father. In a short time it had become exceedingly scarce" (Prideaux). The Stevenson family eventually sold twenty copies in 1899 through Sotheby&#146;s. By any estimation, Stevenson&#146;s scarcest work. Beinecke 1. Prideaux, p. 132-133.

        The complete suite of Maxwell's three papers on Gases, including: "On the Dynamical Theory of Gases" extracted from the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society,

      - PHOTOGRAPHS SENT ON REQUEST. The complete suite of Maxwell's three papers on Gases. First Editions, extracted from the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, comprising: 1.) The Bakerian Lecture: On the Viscosity or Internal Friction of Air and Other Gases, 1866 vol 156, pp.249-268 + 1 lithographic plate; 2.) On the Dynamical Theory of Gases, 1867, vol 157, pp.49-88; 3.) On Stresses in Rarified Gases Arising from Inequalities of Temperature, 1879, vol 170, pp. 231-256. All large quarto, disbound, very good large copies, London, [Royal Society], 1866 - 1879. "One of Maxwell's major investigations was on the kinetic theory of gases. Originating with Daniel Bernoulli, this theory was advanced by the successive labours of John Herapath, John James Waterston, James Joule, and particularly Rudolf Clausius, to such an extent as to put its general accuracy beyond a doubt; but it received enormous development from Maxwell, who in this field appeared as an experimenter (on the laws of gaseous friction) as well as a mathematician. In 1866, he formulated statistically, independently of Ludwig Boltzmann, the Maxwell-Boltzmann kinetic theory of gases. His formula, called the Maxwell distribution, gives the fraction of gas molecules moving at a specified velocity at any given temperature. In the kinetic theory, temperatures and heat involve only molecular movement. This approach generalized the previously established laws of thermodynamics and explained existing observations and experiments in a better way than had been achieved previously." James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) is generally considered the most important mathematical physicist in the period between Newton and Einstein. His work, like theirs, exhibits range as well as depth and extends from his grand synthesis of electrical, magnetic, and optical phenomena in the theory of electromagnetic fields to his contributions to the kinetic theory of gases and its generalization into statistical mechanics.

        ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND

      Macmillan 1866 - First published UK edition. Finely bound by Chelsea Bindery in full red morocco with vignette of Alice holding the pig to upper cover and the Cheshire Cat to rear; raised bands on the spine and gilt titles. All edges gilt and olive endpapers. Pages 17 - 24 misbound after page 32. A beautiful copy of this most important piece of children's literature. Illustrations in black and white by John Tenniel. This classic story was thought up by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (pseudonym Lewis Carroll) on a summer's day on the river Isis near Oxford. During the day on the river with friends he told the tale of Wonderland to 3 little girls from the Liddell family. Later Alice Liddell begged Dodgson to write the story down for her. He did this and added a few of his own illustrations. Before giving the book to Alice, Dodgson showed the book to several friends, including fantasy writer George MacDonald, who encouraged him to have the book published. In order to get the tale ready for publication it was enlarged and punch illustrator, John Tenniel, was commissioned to do the drawings. Macmillan then printed around 2000 copies of the book in 1865, but both artist and author were unhappy with the poor quality printing and insisted it was reprinted before being published. Using a different printer this 1866 version is the first published edition. It has gone on to be considered one of the finest children's books ever written. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mather's Stereoscopic Views of the Pennsylvania Oil Regions

      Titusville: J.A. Mather, [c. 1866] - A fascinating and important record of the birth of the oil industry in northwestern Pennsylvania. British-born John Aked Mather (1829-1915) moved to the United States in 1856 and soon after was introduced to photography by an itinerant daguerreian. Mather travelled through West Virginia and Ohio before settling in Titusville, Pa in 1860 with his wife. Edwin Drake of the Seneca Oil Company had begun drilling in August of 1859, and Mather was poised to become the oil boom's photographer of record, travelling along Oil Creek River on his flatbed studio. Mather's views of wells and rigs were so popular in their time that owners would request Mather photograph their operations to encourage more investment. The photographs that Mather took make up the largest and most significant pictorial record of the western Pennsylvania oil boom, "a record of the first ten years of the industry, a coverage without equal in any nineteenth century technology" (Darrah, The World of Stereographs, p. 80). This group of 22 stereo views includes "Oil Seekers Pithole Penn," "Green Mountain Well ," "Champion Wells Pioneer River," "RR Bridge & Pioneer from Oil Creek," "New York Well Pioneer," "Lady Stewart & Lady Brooks Pioneer River," "Petroleum Center Penn," "Fishers Shipping Sheds," "Old Shipping Platform Miller Farms," and the humorous "Sunken Fortune or Ruined Man" (OIL) 3-1/4 x 6-3/4 inches. 22 stereo cards, with printed paper labels on verso titled in manuscript. Some wear to cards, images near fine

      KINSMAN OHIO OH TRUMBULL COUNTY 1866 - On offer is the handwritten manuscript diary and journal of B. H. Peabody of Kinsman Ohio. Mr. Peabody is a farmer and entrepreneur who, in this ledger style book, records his daily business dealings, visits, local events and the economics of the day. Beginning January 1st of 1866 he continues over 93 numbered pages until November 8th, 1867. There is a break between November 1st and December 31st 1866. A very, very hard working and obviously successful businessman, Mr. Peabody is also very pious, as is evidenced in his comments of the day - at one point he mentions preaching the funeral service for a particular woman. He is also a very dedicated diarist always providing full names of his contacts and clients. The inside back cover has a chart which appears to be a planting breakdown of varieties if apples. There are also nmany references to the local cheese market. Local historians and genealogists will find a wealth of information in this book which is quite legible but requires a glass in places as the period ink is on the lighter side. 7 1/4 x 11 3/4 inches, the front cover has a split where the cover meets the spine. Two strings in the center of the book hold the cover to the spine. Back cover is good. Pages are also good. The edges of the covers are worn. Overall G. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall

        Great Central Depot Grounds. With Entrance to Harbor

      Jevne & Almini.. [ 1866].. Tinted lithograph, image approximately 8 1/2 x 12 inches on sheet size 11 1/2 x 14 3/4 inches. Several mended short tears to outer margins and a couple a small areas of paper loss to left edge (all well outside image area), light soiling in outer margins. Image is remarkably clean and bright. Lithographic view of Chicago by Louis Kurz from the series Chicago Illustrated with descriptive material by James W. Sheahan. Published in installments by Jevne & Almini (1866). Each of the thirteen installments, issued in paper wraps, contained four tinted lithographs printed by the Chicago Lithographing Company. These lithographs represent scarce pre-fire views of the city. This is a particularly evocative image with boats on the harbor, a steam train in the middle distance and several large factory buildings, their smoking chimneys testifying to a thriving business climate. .

        Geschichte von Nassau, von den ältesten Zeiten bis auf die Gegenwart, auf der Grundlage urkundlicher Quellenforschung. [Bände 1-4 von F. W. Th. Schliephake]. [Ab Band 5] fortgesetzt von Karl Menzel [Bände 5-7 unter dem Titel: Geschichte von Nassau von der Mitte des vierzehnten Jahrhunderts bis zur Gegenwart]. - 7 Bände in 8 Teilbänden. -

      Wiesbaden: C. W. Kreidel's Verlag 1866-1889.. Insgesamt 8 Teilbände (Reihe so vollständig). 8° (17,5 - 22,5 cm). 7 Halbleinenbände der Zeit. 1 Halblederband der Zeit. [Hardcover / fest gebunden].. "Theodor Schliephakes (1808-1871) eigentliches Arbeitsfeld war, [...], die Philosophie. Außer Aufsätzen in verschiedenen Zeitschriften ("Die Neue Zeit", "Heidelberger Jahrbücher der Literatur", Fichte bezw. Ulrici "Zeitschrift für Philosophie" etc.) hat er zwei philosophische Schriften: "Die Grundlagen des sittlichen Lebens" (1855), und "Einleitung in das System der Philosophie" (1856) veröffentlicht, in welchen er sich vorzugsweise an seinen Lehrer Krause anschließt, ohne jedoch den selbständigen klaren Forscher zu verleugnen. Während seines Aufenthalts in Wiesbaden und Idstein [dort erzog er 2 Jahre die Kinder des 1839 verstorbenen Herzogs Wilhelm von Nassau] war Schliephake auch dem Gebiete der nassauischen Geschichte nahe getreten. Die herzogliche Regierung beauftragte ihn, die Geschichte des Landes und der Landesherrn, insbesondere der Walramischen, später herzoglichen Hauptlinie des Hauses Nassau zu schreiben, und er unterzog sich dieser Aufgabe nicht nur mit größter Gewissenhaftigkeit, sondern auch mit höchst anerkennenswerthem Geschick, wie es von allen denen gewürdigt worden ist, die sich einen Begriff von der Schwierigkeit des Unternehmens machen konnten. Der Geist, in welchem Schliephake arbeitete, spricht sich am besten in seiner Vorrede zum ersten Bande seiner "Geschichte von Nassau" (1866) aus: "Das Bekenntniß des Geschichtsschreibers ist ein ganz einfaches, es lautet auf aufrichtige vaterländische Gesinnung". Daß er nicht in Nassau geboren und aufgewachsen war, verminderte nicht die treue Hingebung an seine Arbeit und die herzogliche Regierung vertraute ihm mit Recht, "er werde sich in seiner Geschichtsbehandlung einzig und allein an die Wahrheit der Thatsachen halten". Leider sollte Schliephake sein Geschichtswerk nicht zu Ende führen: noch ehe das Manuscript des vierten Bandes, bis zum Jahre 1355 reichend, gedruckt war, starb er. Professor Karl Menzel in Bonn übernahm jedoch die Herausgabe dieses Bandes und vollendete in vortrefflicher Weise das Werk, indem er in weiteren drei Bänden die Geschichte Nassaus bis zum Jahre 1816 fortführte." (ADB 31, S. 519-520) - In Frakturschrift gedruckt. - Einbände leicht berieben und etwas angestaubt. Papier etwas gebräunt. Seiten teils mit braunen Flecken bzw. etwas stockfleckig. Wenige Bände mit handschriftlichem Besitzvermerk in schwarzer Tinte auf dem fliegenden Vorsatzblatt. Einige Bände mit Feuchtigkeitsspuren auf wenigen Seiten (bräunliche Wasserränder). - Insgesamt gut erhaltenes Exemplar.
