        Clergymen of the Church of England

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1866. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. An about Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original red cloth with beveled edges and with the front board lettered in gilt, complete with 24 pages of ads dated March 30, 1866 (spine darkened and worn at the head and tail, evidence of a prior label to the upper front board, moderate shelf wear); a collection of 10 Trollope Essays first published separately in the Pall Mall Gazette, describing the various Church Offices held by Clergymen in the Church of England. The book was published as part of a sort of companion to Trollope's Hunting Sketches (1865) and Travelling Sketches (1866) and was originally destined to be titled Clerical Sketches. Though properly referenced on page 3 of the catalogue, the catalogue also lists the book as "Clerical Sketches" on page 8 of the catalogue. Of these three "Sketches" volumes, Clergymen of the Church of England is quite the scarcest. This Volume is of special interest to the Trollope collector as it gives further elucidation to Trollope's famed Barsetshire novels. A Very Good copy of a book surprisingly scarce in the original cloth. SCARCE.

        Alice's Adventures In Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass

      London: MacMillan and Co. 1866 & 1872. First editions. Octavo, two volumes. Bound in early 20th-century full red morocco by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. Gilt vignettes to front and rear panels of each volume, gilt tooling on spine. All edges gilt, silk endpapers. Original cloth covers and spine bound in at rear. In fine condition. Housed in a early custom box, which shows some wear.Alice's Adventures were "born on a golden afternoon" in July 1862, when the Rev. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll) took the three small daughters of Dean Liddell of Christ Church on a boating trip up the Isis. Carroll delighted the three children by relating Alice's adventures, and eventually promised his favorite among the three, Alice Liddell, to write the story down for her. Through the Looking-Glass can be seen as a mirror image of the Alice's Adventures. For example, the latter begins outdoors in the warmth of May 4 and uses the imagery of playing cards, while the former begins indoors on a snowy, cold November 4 and uses the imagery of chess. "The two Alice books… completed the reinstatement of the imagination, so long disapproved of by the opponents of fairy stories, to its proper place. 'Alice is, in a word, a book of that extremely rare kind which will belong to all the generations to come until the language becomes obsolete'" (Carpenter & Prichard, 102).

Barrow, through Breed and Butler, published four other sets of six books under the pen-names Aunt Fanny and Aunt Laura. A fine copy, bound in uncommonly bright gilt-decorated green cloth.

        A Yankee in Canada, with Anti-Slavery and Reform Papers

      Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1866 First edition, first printing. One of 1,546 copies printed. Original publisher's purple C cloth, binding A (priority not determined), with diamond pattern and central wreath stamped in blind, spine lettering stamped in gilt, brown coated endpapers. A near fine copy, with some very slight wear to the spine ends, minor toning to the spine and bottom edge of the front board, bright spine gilt, a few faint spots to the spine, sturdy spine without any cracking, bright and crisp pages. An excellent copy, very unusual in this condition. BAL 20117 In addition to "A Yankee in Canada," this volume contains the first book publications of Thoreau's essays, "Civil Disobedience" and "Life Without Principle;" each essay had been previously published serially in different literary magazines. The titular essay is based on Thoreau's 1850 trip to Canada. In the same year, the American Fugitive Slave Law was passed, igniting a wave of abolitionism in New England. This volume includes Thoreau's defense of John Brown, first delivered as a speech in 1859, which is indicative of Thoreau's leadership of the abolitionist movement in New England and his radical support for John Brown before his execution. A Yankee in Canada contains "Prayers" by Ralph Waldo Emerson, who was also living in New England in the mid-1800s and whom Thoreau encouraged to support the abolitionist movement. Published posthumously, A Yankee in Canada united Thoreau's moral theories about humanism, individualism, and naturalism.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        The DEAD LETTER [as Serialized in] BEADLE'S MONTHLY, A Magazine of To-Day. Vol. I - III

      Beadle and Company New York:: Beadle and Company,. 1866 - 1867.. 8vo. 8-3/4" x 5-5/8". 1st Beadle publication (Hubin I, p. 672 [showing an 1866 publication date]; Johannsen BEADLE I, pp 150 & 421 & II, pp 279 - 280; Wright II, 2584 [showing an 1867 publication date]). Not in Baird & Greenwood. 3 volumes (576; 560; 576 pp).. Original publisher's black leather spines over black cloth boards, with gilt stamped title lettering to spine.. A square & tight VG+ set, showing just minor wear.. From the present remove of a century & a quarter, we can now categorically state the January 1866 debut issue of Beadle's Monthly to be a watershed publication in American letters, for it gave wide audience to Mrs Metta V. Victor's ground-breaking piece of literature, The Dead Letter, which we now know has the distinction of being the first detective novel written by a woman. Steinbrunner & Penzler, ENCYCLOPEDIA Of MYSTERY & DETECTION, state this work is "one of the most important detective novels published in the United States..." And one of the rarest too; despite the fact that, beginning with this appearance, Beadle, from 1866 - 1878, published the title in 4 different series, the work rarely appears on the commercial market. We're pleased to offer it here, in its original, and first, Beadle publication. Furthermore, these 3 volumes also contain 9 other pieces by Mrs. Victor [one under her pseudonym, Rose Kennedy], including poetry, short -stories & the novel, "Who Was He?". All-in-all, a significant gathering, in one lot, from an important 19th C. American Lady- of-Letters. NB. There is anecdotal evidence, from the publisher himself [cf. Beadle's Monthly, Feb 1867, p. 195], wherein he states the work "was, in fact, produced two years previous to the issue of our first number. We make this statement to forestall the circulation of such errors as those adverted to..." This 'admission' not withstanding, the actual location of an 1864 edition has proven quite elusive; we find absolutely no modern on-line record documenting the existence of such an edition, and therefore believe that anyone who wants this title for their collection would do well to look to this 1866 publication. . Victor's work illustrated with 22 cuts.

        Original Watercolour showing an African Village with Native Inhabitants, Titled]: "Sir R. Baker's Source of the Nile."

      1866 - Ca. 1866. Grisaille watercolour and pencil on an album leaf, ca. 18x27 cm (ca. 7 x 10 ½ in). Captioned in pencil on the lower margin. With a pencil sketch of a native African man on verso. Mounted in a recent mat, overall a very good watercolour. The talented artist was British navy officer George Goldsmith. He joined the Royal Navy in 1821 and was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant (1828), Commander (1841), Captain (1842), Vice-Admiral (1867) and Admiral (1875). Goldsmith served in the Mediterranean, West Coast Africa and the East Indies. He took part in the 1st Anglo-Chinese War, with HMS Hyacinth; and the Crimean War, with HMS Sidon under his command. Upon return to Britain he became Superintendent of the dockyard at Chatham and was created Companion of the Bath for his services in the Crimea. The watercolour shows a native village, apparently near Lake Albert - one of the African Great Lakes which was discovered by Baker during his travel to the region in 1861-1865. Baker proved the lake to be, together with Lake Victoria, the source of the Nile - and for this achievement he was knighted and awarded with the gold medals of the Royal Geographical Society and Paris Geographical Society. Curiously, Baker's name in the caption is initialed as "R", instead of "S"[amuel].

        The Logic of Chance

      London and Cambridge: Macmillan and Co.,, 1866. An Essay on the Foundations and Province of the Theory of Probability, with especial reference to its application to moral and social science. Octavo (172 × 114 mm). Original publisher's red cloth, blindstamp rule border to covers, spine ruled and lettered gilt. With the ownership inscription of the author John Venn to the half-title dated October 1867. Joints rubbed with a short split, head and tail of spine a little frayed. A fine copy with an excellent provenance. First edition of Venn's first book. "In The Logic of Chance Venn pioneered the frequency theory of probablilty, in which assertions of probability are understood as purely empirically based judgements of the recurrence of types over events over time, independent of an observer's feelings. As with much of his work, Venn is here exploring the logic and limits of belief" (ODNB). Seminal in the development of the young science of statistics, Venn's views on probability were to receive their most comprehensive philosophical critique in Keynes's Treatise on Probability in 1921. "In this book [Venn] disclaimed any attempt to make extensive use of mathematical techniques; he believed that there was a need for a thorough and logical discussion of principles, and his work was an essay in that direction" (DSB).
