      Paris, Dentu 1866 - In-12. Collation : (4), IV pp., 275 pp. Demi-basane rouge, dos orné. (Reliure de l'époque.) Seule édition. Dans "Les derniers Marquis", Louise Colet raconte sa saison d'eaux passée, dans les Pyrénées, aux Eaux-Bonnes. C'est le théâtre d'une intrigue, relevant de fort petites passions parmi les curistes. Publié à la suite, "Deux mois aux Pyrénées" est un classique récit de voyage, passant par Dax, Pau, Eaux-Chaudes, Gabas, Laruns, Oléron, Bayonne, Biarritz, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Fontarabie. Louise Colet (Aix-en-Provence, 1835- P., 1876) a publié des poèmes, des romans et des ouvrages autobiographiques, mais elle est restée surtout célèbre pour sa longue et orageuse liaison avec Gustave Flaubert, qui lui écrivit des centaines de lettres. Cet ouvrage, qui a probablement connu un échec commercial, est aujourd'hui très rare. Seuls trois exemplaires sont conservés dans les bibliothèques publiques: BNF, Toulouse, Institut de France.

        Felix Holt: The Radical

      nbsp;Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and Sons, 1866. nbsp;Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and Sons, 1866 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. The complete set of this highly sought after work from prolific author, Mary Anne, under her famous pseudonym George Eliot. First edition. Inthe Carter C variant binding often considered the rarest of the bindings. Featuring the original publishers catalogue to the rear of volume three. All volumes have their original half titles. Published around the time of the Second Reform Act, Felix Holt, the Radical takes a nostalgic look at events during the time of the First Reform Act in 1832. Little attention is paid to the preceding social or political mechanisms underlying the Reform. More relevant to the story is the social change seen in rural towns across England resulting from political change. Treby Magna, previously isolated from notions of national politics and national religion, becomes exposed to the riotous upheaval seen in other English towns when it is made a polling station. In January 1868, Eliot penned an article entitled Address to Working Men, by Felix Holt. This came on the heels of the Second Reform Act of 1867 which expanded the right to vote beyond the landed classes and was written in the character of, and signed by, Felix Holt. Complete in three volumes. Condition: In original publishers' cloth bindings, with gilt lettering to the spines. Externally, a trifle rubbed, with wear and loss to the extremities and spines. Chipping to the head and tail of spines, and backstrip to volume tree is lifting. One joint is strained, and four hinges are slightly strained. Internally, generally firmly bound, with instances of spotting, and handling marks. Overall: GOOD ONLY..

        Snow Bound

      Boston - Ticknor and Fields, 1866. Boston - Ticknor and Fields, 1866 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition of Whittier's best known poemThis is the first edition, second issue with the final page (52) unnumbered as shown above. With the original binding bound into the book at the rear, as shown above. Bound by Stikeman & Co. Bound in half leather with green cloth covered boards and gilt lettering. John Greenleaf Whittier (1807 1892) was an influential American Quaker poet and ardent advocate of the abolition of slavery in the United States. He is usually listed as one of the Fireside Poets. Whittier was strongly influenced by the Scottish poet, Robert Burns. Thispoem takes place in what is today known as the John Greenleaf Whittier Homestead, which still stands in Haverhill, Massachusetts. The poem chronicles a rural New England family as a snowstorm rages outside for three days. Stuck in their home, the family members exchange stories by their roaring fire. Whittier began the poem originally as a personal gift to his niece Elizabeth as a method of remembering the family. Nevertheless, he told publisher James Thomas Fields about it, referring to it as a homely picture of old New England homes. Snow-Bound was first published as a book-length poem on February 17, 1866. Snow-Bound was financially successful, much to Whittier's surprise. By the summer after its first publication, sales had reached 20,000, earning Whittier royalties of ten cents per copy. He ultimately collected $10,000 for it. Its popularity also led to the home depicted in the poem being preserved as a museum in 1892. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is some slight wear to the extremities including slight bumping, and discolouration to the spine. The front inner hinge is slightly strained. Internally the pages are clean and bright with the odd handling mark. There is some slight offsetting from the frontispiece. Overall the condition of the book is very good..

        Oeuvres completes de Moliere

      Paris - Chez Firmin Didot Freres, 1866. Paris - Chez Firmin Didot Freres, 1866 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Handsome gilt tooled full calf leather binding with school crest to front board and marbled fore edge. The complete works of Moliere in the original French with portrait frontispiece. Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, also known by his stage name, Molire (January 15, 1622 February 17, 1673) was a French playwright and actor who is considered one of the greatest masters of comedy in Western literature. Among Molire's best-known dramas are Le Misanthrope, (The Misanthrope), L'cole des femmes (The School for Wives), Tartuffe ou l'Imposteur, (Tartuffe or the Hypocrite), L'Avare ou l'cole du mensonge (The Miser), and Le Bourgeois gentilhomme (The Bourgeois Gentleman). From a prosperous family and having studied at the Jesuit Clermont College (now Lyce Louis-le-Grand), Molire left with a good education to begin a life in the theatre. Thirteen years on the road as an actor helped him to polish his comic abilities while he also began writing, combining Commedia dell'Arte elements with the more refined French comedy. Through the patronage of a few aristocrats including the brother of Louis XIV, Molire procured a command performance before the King at the Louvre. Performing a classic play by Pierre Corneille and a farce of his own, Le Docteur amoureux (The Doctor in Love), Molire was granted the use of Salle du Petit-Bourbon at the Louvre, a spacious room appointed for theatrical performances. Later, Molire was granted the use of the Palais-Royal, in both locations he found success among the Parisians with plays such as Les Prcieuses ridicules (The Affected Ladies), L'cole des maris (The School for Husbands) and L'cole des femmes (The School for Wives). This royal favour brought a royal pension to his troupe and the title Troupe du Roi (The King's Troupe). Molire continued as the official author of court entertainments. Condition: The binding is tight and firm and both covers are firmly attached. There is some minor wear to the extremities including some marks to the boards and some rubbing to the edges. Internally the book is generally clean and bright apart from some isolated spotting in a couple of places including to the title page and frontispiece. There is a College stamp to the front blank end paper and a prize inscription beneath..

The story was published in the Sacramento Union in 1866. This version (with additions) was published in the national periodical Harper's New Monthly Magazine, making it Twain's first national magazine publication. Unlike some books serialized over months in periodicals, this story is complete in this single issue. It was not attributed to a particular author, but the annual magazine index notes the author as Mark Swain (a typographical error). Bound volumes are fairly available, but copies in the original wrappers are more difficult to obtain given the ephemeral nature of the binding.

        The Belton Estate

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1866. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing of this quite difficult-to-find Anthony Trollope triple-decker, bound in three-quarter blue leather with complementary blue boards, top edge gilded (some modest edge wear, a few tiny rubs to the spines); an EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE SET with ALL THREE VOLUMES BEING FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING. The novel centers on the unsophisticated but golden-hearted farmer, Will Belton, a distant cousin of Clara Amedroz who occupies the Estate with her aged father. Belton becomes heir to the Estate upon the suicide of Clara's spendthrift brother, Charles, and, while visiting the Estate, falls in love with Clara who, in turn, is in love with Captain Aylmer, a rather cold up-and-coming Member of Parliament to whom Clara becomes engaged. While a young Henry James described The Belton Estate as being "a stupid book, without a single thought or idea in it ... a sort of mental pablum", Nathaniel Hawthorne's general description of Trollope's novels as "solid, substantial, written on the strength of beef and through the inspiration of ale..." is a more apt description of this work. Noted by Sadleir as being one of the scarcest of all of Trollope's works, the novel does not often appear on the market in the original triple-decker format and appearances of a set with each volume in first edition, first printing are scarcer still. [Three editions -- i.e. printings, in the case at hand -- of the novel were issued in the triple-decker format. Although dated "1866", the first printing was issued in 1865 and the second an third printings were issued in 1866.] Sadleir states that first editions, first printings of the novel in any form are rare, that copies in original cloth are very rare, and that he never had seen a copy of the book offered in a bookshop or at auction. Interestingly, Trollope intended that the novel be issued in 2 volumes rather than in 3 and, in his schedule of returns earned from his work noted by his entry for The Belton Estate: "surreptitiously printed in three volumes". A Very Good copy of an extraordinarily scarce Trollope triple-decker novel in the first edition, first printing, of which Sadleir stated: "The Belton Estate in first edition, through some hazard of publishing history which I cannot explain, has simply disappeared." A Very Good copy of the complete first edition, one of Trollope's scarcest works. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE.

Docketed in manuscript on the verso of the final leaf. Two small holes punched in left edge, and two small holes punched in top margin. Worn around the edges with several small closed tears. Final three leaves with some marginal dampstaining. Good. A very interesting and attractive manuscript document recording cattle brands for several ranchers in Tulare County, California. Located at the southern end of the Central Valley, with its county seat at Visalia, Tulare County is known for its agricultural production and its stock raising. This document contains the certification and seal of the county recorder, Thomas J. Shackleford, attesting that it is a true copy of the all the cattle brands recorded for the county between March 9, 1864 and January 31, 1866. The list is ordered chronologically, and includes sixty-two brands and forty marks for more than eighty named cattle ranchers. Among the ranchers are several women, including Harriet Clapp, Susan Wallace, and Lucy Barnes. The final decades of the nineteenth century saw a growth in the use of printed western brand books, but such manuscript records are uncommon. A relatively early record of California cattle brands, and an attractive document.

        Original Pencil Drawing, Titled]: Above St. André.

      1866 - Ca. 1866. Pencil on blue paper, heightened in white, ca. 25x33,5 cm (9 ¾ x 13 ¼ in). Captioned in pencil on the lower margin and also on verso: "St. André from above looking south. Dec [?] 24/66". Recently matted. A very good watercolour. Beautiful pencil drawing of a rocky landscape, attributed to British politician and Temperance advocate W.S. Caine who travelled around the world with his daughter Hannah in August 1887 - March 1886. He went across the Atlantic Ocean on a steam liner from Liverpool to Quebec, then crossed Canada overland through the Rocky Mountains and British Columbia, went on a steamer from Vancouver to San Francisco and continued his trip to Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Ceylon and India. Caine's numerous sketches and photographs taken during the journey were used as illustrations to his book, some in the original state, and some being reworked "by my old friend, Mr. John Pedder, of Maidenhead, who has evolved the greater portion of the illustrations, with accuracy and artistic skill" (Caine. A Trip around the World in 1887-8. London, 1888, p. x).

        In der römischen Campagna bei Genzano

      um 1866. Aquarell auf Papier, auf altem Unterlagekarton bezeichnet, 26,4 x 38 cm. Gustav Richter hat sich durch sein 1879 entstandenes Gemälde der Königin Luise in das kollektive Geschichtsbild gemalt. Die anmutig eine Treppe herabsteigende Königin in weißem Gewand mit wallendem Mantel gehört zu den am häufigsten reproduzierten Darstellungen im Luisen-Kult. Als Richter dieses Idealbild der Mutter des damaligen Kaisers Wilhelm I. malte, war er bereits ein gefeierter Porträtist und Historienmaler der Berliner Aristokratie. Unser Blatt hingegen steht mit einer anderen Seite von Richters Schaffen in Zusammenhang. 1859 erhielt er durch den bayerischen König Maximilian II Joseph den Auftrag, ein monumentale Ölgemälde mit dem Bau der ägyptischen Pyramiden für das Maximilianeum in München zu malen. Für dieses im Zweiten Weltkrieg zerstörte Bild unternahm er eine Reise nach Ägypten, um vor Ort Studien zu betreiben. Die Atmosphäre des fernen Landes hatte einen prägenden Einfluss auf Richters Kunst, die sich zunehmend an koloristischen Aspekten und Lichteffekten orientierte. Es mag dieses arabische Licht gewesen sein, das er bei seiner zweiten Italienreise 1866 wieder spürte und das in unserem Aquarell nachklingt. Noch über die italienische Sonne hinaus ist die Atmosphäre jener römischen Campagna-Landschaft in der Nähe von Genzano auf diesem Blatt von einer intensiven Helligkeit geprägt, die nicht nur der Gegend eine ganz eigene Farbigkeit einschreibt, sondern auch die Konturen zu einem flirrenden Dunst verschwimmen lässt, ganz wie eine Fata Morgana in der arabischen Hitze. Die Kargheit und Größe der Landschaft mögen bei Richter weitere Assoziationen an seinen Aufenthalt in Ägypten ausgelöst haben. Das Umland Roms war besonders im 19. Jahrhundert Anziehungspunkt für unzählige Künstler, die in der weitgehend unberührten Landschaft eine direkte Konfrontation mit der Natur in ihrer Urwüchsigkeit erblickten. Für Friedrich Theodor Vischer war die Begegnung mit jener Campagna di Roma sogar eine Art Erweckungserlebnis: "Als ich kam, war mein Auge noch wie ungeschliffenes Glas, jetzt fange ich an zu sehen." Es war jener "bläulich silberne Duft der Ferne" und die Weite der Landschaft, wo er die "Größe und Stille der Götter" wähnte, die für nahezu alle Künstler des 19. Jahrhunderts von Karl Blechen bis Edmund Kanoldt zu einer "Schule des Sehens" wurden.

      Charlotte. 1866-1869.. Charlotte. 1866-1869.. Thirty-five issues. Original printed pictorial wrappers. Light scattered soiling and wear. Spines lightly chipped on some issues, most heavily on very first issue, from which front cover is nearly detached. Overall, very good.

A key outlet for Southern writers in the wake of the Civil War. While scattered parts show up, complete sets are virtually impossible to assemble.
