        Pemaquid Pt. to Fletchers Neck

      Published by the Admiralty, London 1866 - Engraving. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition. Two joined sheets. Image size: 37 1/2 x 39 1/2 inches. An excellent admiralty chart of Casco Bay, Maine from Pemaquid Point to Fletcher's Neck, produced by the British Hydrographic Office. The British Hydrographic Office was founded in 1795 by George III, who appointed Alexander Dalrymple as the first Hydrographer to the Admiralty. He immediately set to work but it was not until 1800 that the first Admiralty chart was published of the waters around Quiberon Bay in Brittany. Unlike the U. S. Coast Survey the Hydrographic Office was given permission to sell charts to the public and they produced a great number of sea charts covering every corner of the globe. Most of the Admiralty charts produced by the Hydrographic Office delineated coastline as well as high and low water marks and recorded depth of water as established by soundings. In addition these charts included information on shoals, reefs, and other navigational hazards that plagued mariners across the world. Thanks to the innovations of Sir Francis Beaufort, who developed the Beaufort Scale of wind strength, the British Hydrographic Office became one of the leading producers of sea charts. This large chart of Casco Bay, Maine, covers the coastline from Pemaquid Point to Fletcher's Neck. Water depths and sand bars are all carefully recorded, as are the various lighthouses along the coastline, which are identified in colour. This is an important sea chart of this area and a wonderful example of the maps produced by the British Hydrographic Office.

        Book of American Pastimes, Containing a History of the Principal Base Ball, Cricket, Rowing and Yachting Clubs of the United States

      Published by The Author, New York 1866 - First edition. Reddish-brown cloth gilt. 556pp. Tiny early owner's name, corners a little rubbed and bumped, a very good or better copy with one signature slightly sprung, still an unusually nice copy of a very important, self-published book. Over 150 pages are devoted to baseball. Grobani in his definitive Guide to Baseball Literature characterizes this book under General Histories as G1 and comments: "Sketches of all National Association Clubs. The definitive history of early baseball." Almost always found in deplorable condition, this is a nice copy and very uncommon thus. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Ninth Annual Report of the Board of Commissioners of the Central Park, for the Year ending with December 31, 1865

      Wm. C. Bryant & Co., Printers, New York 1866 - First edition. Octavo. pp. [1-7] 8-135 [136 (blank)]. With 10 lithographic plates (including three folded maps) and two mounted albumen photographs. Publisher's blind-stamped cloth over boards, re-backed with most of the original spine laid down, title in gold on the front board. Small bookplate on the front pastedown. Some loss at the spine ends, the final letterpress leaf (with attached free endpaper) is neatly detached, the back joint is split (with the board firmly reattached), else very good with a few faint creases to the large folded map. This Ninth Annual Report describes and illustrates the many improvements and progress of the work on Central Park up through January 1st, 1866. It features four handsome tinted lithographic plates depicting "The Lake" (frontispiece), a "Drinking Place for Horses", the "Tunnel and Traffic Road", and the "Statue of Commerce". Also included is a color plate of the "Gonfalon at the Terrace" (bearing the arms of the City of New York), and a large folded color lithographic "Map of the Central Park" (measuring approximately 34" x 9"). Also of interest are the two mounted oval albumen photographs of the Rustic Bridge and Boat Landing: as the new technology of photography became more commercially viable, they most likely were used in place of wood-engraved illustrations. Included also are two additional folded maps, and two additional plates (with schematic illustrations of the park's retaining walls and drainage system). Very scarce: OCLC locates only three copies.

        Documents attesting to the Civil War service of the Maryland slave, Alexander Chase, in the 7th United States Colored Infantry and his death in the Post Hospital at Indianola Texas

      Maryland and Virginia, 1866. Very good. These two documents include a statement of service and death at the Indianola Texas Post Hospital of Alexander Chase while serving in Company E, 7th Regiment, U. S. Colored Troops Volunteers and the 4-page State of Maryland Bounty claim and receipt documenting its payment to his wife, Margaret. The statement of service and death is signed by Margaret with her mark, an "x". The claim is supported by signed testimony from Solomon Jackson, an elderly African-American "preacher of the M. E. (Methodist Episcopal) Church," that he married the couple on December 28, 1863. Two revenue stamps are affixed to the document: a 2-cent orange Bank Check stamp (Scott # R6) and a 2-cent orange Certificate stamp (Scott #R8). The documents are in nice shape; they have been glued together along their top margins. Although Maryland was a slave state, it never seceded from the Union, so its slaves were not freed with the Emancipation Proclamation. They could instead, however, earn their freedom by enlisting in the Army with or without their masters' consent. In September of 1863, the War Department authorized Colonel William Birney to raise an infantry regiment, the 7th Regiment of United States Colored Troops, from the slaves and free blacks of Maryland. Men who enlisted were to receive a bounty of $50 for signing up, and if they completed their tour successfully, they were to receive an additional discharge bonus of $50. To make the loss of a slave more palatable, slave owner's who could prove their ownership of an enlistee were also entitle to a $100 bounty. Chase was the property of R. J. and Mary Goldsmith when he enlisted on 1 September 1863. Initially, the regiment was sent to Florida and South Carolina where its daily routine of garrison and guard duty was occasionally interrupted with a skirmish or two. Chase, however, did not deploy with the unit. Instead, he was detailed by Birney to serve as a recruiter in Baltimore. He rejoined the regiment in early January, and it is while in Baltimore that he and Margaret married. By August of 1864, the 7th had moved into central Virginia where it served in the siege operations against Petersburg and Richmond, There, Chase participated in the 2nd Battle of Deep Bottom (Fussel's Mill). Following General Lee's surrender, the regiment moved to Texas for duty along the Rio Grande. While in Texas, Chase contracted dysentery and was hospitalized at Indianola where he died on 31 December 1865. In addition to the two original documents in this group, I've included photostat excerpts from Stanley's official Army record as well as documentation showing that he was a slave belonging to the Goldsboroughs at the time of his enlistment. Although Colored Troops discharges are relatively uncommon, they turn up regularly at auction. Almost all, however, are for African-Americans who were free men before the war began or who were freed as the result of the Emancipation Proclamation. Documents for actual slaves who enlisted from the slave states that remained in the Union (Maryland, Kentucky, and Missouri) are very scarce. As of 2017, other than similar papers I have for the former slave, Algy Stanley, there are none for sale in the trade and no auction records at ABPC or the Rare Book Hub. Although there are no similar institutional records per OCLC, OCLC does identify "one certificate . . . freeing a slave and his family as a reward for his service in the Confederate army.," which is located at the New York Historical Society.

        The Hudson's Bay Company, its Positions and Prospects. The Substance of an Address, Delivered at a Meeting of the Shareholders, in the London Tavern, on the 24th January, 1866.

      1866 - Second Thousand. Folding map, printed in colour. 8vo. Original green printed wrappers, a little soiled. iv,77pp. [1pp. Notice to Shareholders]. London, Edward Stanford & A. H. Baily, An extremelyrare pamphlet relating to the Hudson's Bay Company's struggles to maintain controlling land interests in North America, mainly in Western Canada. In 1869, the HBC would give up vast lands in North America and be compensated just £300,000 for them, a sum far lower than the many millions the land was supposed to be worth. ?Dodds belonged to the whole-hoggers among the shareholders. He would be satisfied with five million for the lands of the Hudson?s Bay Company, and implied that the offer of a million was a joke. What his opinion was when Sir Stafford Northcote made the Company take £300,000 and a twentieth of the land, it would be difficult to imagine? - Goodspeed. This copy identified as ?Second Thousand? on the titlepage. Includes the perforated Shareholder's Notice still bound in after the text, not readily included in paginations of other copies of this title.

        Post-Civil War promissory note documenting a loan of $2,500 made by Admiral David G. Farragut to John Henry Brooks, his Steward aboard the Flagship USS Hartford

      Washington, DC, 1866. Unbound. Very good. This partially printed promissory note measures approximately 8" x 3.5". In it Brooks promises to repay Farragut $40/month (with interest) for a total of 58 months. (Schneller's biography, Farragut: America's First Admiral states that the total value of the loan was $2,500). The note is signed twice by Brooks, once on each side, and once by Farragut on the reverse. Docketing on the reverse indicates the note was paid off on June 20th, 1871. Brooks became the admiral's steward in January of 1864 until the end of the war and was at his side during the Battle of Mobile Bay, the most decisive naval engagement of the Civil War. Farragut, a southerner who became the Admiral of the Union Navy, never clearly expressed his views on slavery or African-Americans, and his references about them in his official writings were always neutral. Perhaps, his relationship with Brooks provides a clue; it isn't every Admiral who would loan his steward enough money to purchase a nice home in Washington, DC., and at least one biographer reports that Brooks considered Farragut to be a "good friend." A unique piece of history that documents Admiral Farragut's relationship with his African-American steward.

        Memoirs and Correspondence of Field-Marshal Viscount Combermere.

      London: Hurst and Blackett,, 1866. From his Family Papers. 2 volumes, octavo. Contemporary tan calf, rebacked with the original spines laid down, raised bands, red and black morocco labels, remaining spine-compartments gilt-tooled, double gilt rules to sides, marbled edges and endpapers, inner dentelles gilt. Engraved frontispiece and vignette title page to each volume. Extremities and spines rubbed, small loss to one raised band, tips slightly worn, leather slightly dry along joints, faint marking to mottled sides from removal of tape, contents clean and fresh. A very good copy. First edition, presentation copy of the posthumously-edited memoirs of Stapleton Cotton, 1st Viscount Combermere, soldier and colonial administrator best-remembered for his actions in the Peninsular War and later as commander-in-chief of India, a post he held from 1825 to 1830. With an autograph letter signed from the author Mary, Viscountess Combermere presenting the book to one "Mr Marjoribanks", written on mourning stationery and mounted to the frontispiece recto of the first volume, with bookplates engraved with the monogram "E. M." and the Marjoribanks family motto "Advance with courage" to the front pastedowns. The recipient was probably Edward Marjoribanks (1776-1868), a banker of Scottish descent, senior partner at Coutts, and owner of Greenlands, a noted country house in Henley-on-Thames; his son Dudley was created Baron Tweedmouth in 1880, the title passing to his son, also Edward (1849-1909), who became an influential Liberal politician. Cotton (1773-1865) was commissioned into the 23rd Regiment of Foot (Royal Welch Fusiliers) in 1791, serving with the 6th Dragoon Guards in the Flanders Campaign before travelling to India with the 25th Light Dragoons in 1796. There he was present at the Siege of Seringapatam and met Arthur Wellesley, under whom he served in the Peninsula, in which campaign his brought him elevation to the peerage (as Baron Combermere, 1814) and the Knight Grand Cross of the Order of Bath. He was governor of Barbados and commander of the West Indian forces from 1817 to 1820, and commander-in-chief, Ireland, from 1822 to 1825, when he returned to India on the personal recommendation of Wellington. As commander-in-chief he finally took the fortress of Bharatpur, "a menace to British rule ever since Lord Lake failed against it twenty years before" (ODNB), for which he was made a viscount in 1827, returning to England in 1830 and spending the following decades in the performance of his parliamentary duties and marrying married Mary, his literary executor and third wife, in 1838. A nice copy of a work unusually singled out in Bruce's bibliography of the British Army as "useful for the documents it prints".

        GARDNER'S PHOTOGRAPHIC SKETCH BOOK OF THE WAR

      Washington: Philip & Solomons, [1866]. FIRST EDITION. This is one of the first and greatest American photographic books ever published, and considered by many to be the most important book of its kind to come out of the American Civil War. Due to the technological limitations of the time, most of the subject matter here consists of fortifications, encampments, bloodied battlefields, ruins, and important civic buildings rather than the action of the battlefield. But by turning their lenses to these deceptively static scenes, Garder and his colleagues managed to capture of the most memorable photographs of the war, in turns haunting, poignant, and graphic. Some notable examples include "President Lincoln on Battle-Field of Antietam," "A Harvest of Death," and the famously contraversial "Home of a Rebel Sharpshooter, Gettysburg". The latter, which depicts a fallen soldier and his rifle entrenched in a rocky setting, is now believed to have been partially staged by the photographer. Most of the original photographs in this work were taken by Alexander Gardner himself, with contributions by some of the most prominent figures in the field, including James Gardner, Timothy O'Sullivan, David Knox, John Reekie, William R. Pywell, D.B. Woodbury, W. Morris Smith, Barnard & Gibson and Wood & Gibson. Gardner (1821-1882) also worked with the eminent American photographer Matthew Brady until 1862, when Gardner broke away to found his own studio. In addition to his "Sketch Book," Gardner is also remembered for his iconic photographs of President Lincoln, and was the only photographer admitted to the execution of those consipirators involved with the President's assassination. The present work was produced in a very small number (by most accounts no more than 200 copies) and was extremely expensive to produce due to the large number of images involved. Scholars have recently distinguished two slightly versions of the first edition: the earlier version contains the caption "Incidents of War" on all the mounts. Ours belongs to the second iteration, which omits the above phrase and adds plate numbers, but is in every other way identical. Although our copy contains some dampstaining to the margins, it is mercifully free of damage to all the images but one. The few similar examples at auction in the last ten years have fetched upwards of $200,000 or more (all in).. 425 x 320 mm. (16 3/4 x 12 1/2"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION. Original publisher's black morocco over heavy boards, upper covers with gilt titling, publisher's monogram, and triple-ruled gilt borders, spines with raised bands and gilt compartments. WITH 100 ALBUMEN PRINTS DEPICTING IMAGES OF THE CIVIL WAR, each mounted on larger sheets of paper within a lithographed frame and captioned, and each preceded by a descriptive letterpress leaf. Front free end paper of first volume with a gift inscription dated 1867. Howes G64; Sabin 26635. Corners a touch bumped, head and tail of spine with minor wear, lower boards and a small section of the upper board of Volume II with some visible dampstaining, but still in very good shape overall; one photograph with some water damage (but only appearing to slightly wrinkle and lighten the image), some moderate dampstaining to the preliminary and final leaves (the stains somewhat darker in the second volume), light scattered foxing and dampstaining affecting the margins and just a few of the frames around the images, a little light fading around some of the images (most certainly due to age), but STILL A VERY GOOD SET, the images clear and crisp and the binding still entirely sound. This is one of the first and greatest American photographic books ever published, and considered by many to be the most important book of its kind to come out of the American Civil War. Due to the technological limitations of the time, most of the subject matter here consists of fortifications, encampments, bloodied battlefields, ruins, and important civic buildings rather than the action of the battlefield. But by turning their lenses to these deceptively static scenes, Garder and his colleagues managed to capture of the most memorable photographs of the war, in turns haunting, poignant, and graphic. Some notable examples include "President Lincoln on Battle-Field of Antietam," "A Harvest of Death," and the famously contraversial "Home of a Rebel Sharpshooter, Gettysburg". The latter, which depicts a fallen soldier and his rifle entrenched in a rocky setting, is now believed to have been partially staged by the photographer. Most of the original photographs in this work were taken by Alexander Gardner himself, with contributions by some of the most prominent figures in the field, including James Gardner, Timothy O'Sullivan, David Knox, John Reekie, William R. Pywell, D.B. Woodbury, W. Morris Smith, Barnard & Gibson and Wood & Gibson. Gardner (1821-1882) also worked with the eminent American photographer Matthew Brady until 1862, when Gardner broke away to found his own studio. In addition to his "Sketch Book," Gardner is also remembered for his iconic photographs of President Lincoln, and was the only photographer admitted to the execution of those consipirators involved with the President's assassination. The present work was produced in a very small number (by most accounts no more than 200 copies) and was extremely expensive to produce due to the large number of images involved. Scholars have recently distinguished two slightly versions of the first edition: the earlier version contains the caption "Incidents of War" on all the mounts. Ours belongs to the second iteration, which omits the above phrase and adds plate numbers, but is in every other way identical. Although our copy contains some dampstaining to the margins, it is mercifully free of damage to all the images but one. The few similar examples at auction in the last ten years have fetched upwards of $200,000 or more (all in).

        Two studio photographs of Aborigines, Brisbane, late 1860s

      Albumen print photographs, carte de visite format, each 101 x 64 mm, versos with imprint of D. Marquis, Photographer, George Street, Brisbane, one of the prints slightly pale otherwise both in very good condition, the mounts with some mild toning to the edges and lightly marked verso (one with contemporary pencil annotations). Marquis opened his studio at 82 George Street in 1866, and these elaborately composed tableaux of Aboriginal groups date to between 1866 and around 1870. They are highly significant images in that they pre-date the well known series of larger format tableaux taken by J.W. Lindt in his Grafton studio around 1873. A copy of one of these images and a very close variant of the other are held in the collection of the Pitt Rivers Museum. An article titled Ten Queensland Photographs in the Founding Collection of the Pitt Rivers Museum by Christopher Morton, the Museum's Curator of Photographs and Manuscripts, is published online and provides valuable collection information about both of the images ( http://web.prm.ox.ac.uk/rpr/index.php/objectbiographies/72-10-queensland-photographs ). In one of the tableaux we see a group of young women seated at lower left, and one of the four standing men is holding a European axe over his shoulder. Christopher Morton comments as follows: '[1998.249.7.14] This print was ... purchased from the Estate of Friedrich Dammann in 1901. It is closely related to Godeffroy no. 55 which includes a European man to the right of the group (published in Sumner 1986: 165), copies of which appear in a number of European museums (Theye 2004: 260). This Dammann print is labelled "Bride Capture" on the PRM mount. The original which Dammann copied does not seem to be part of the Dietrich set, but is also possibly the work of the Daniel Marquis studio in Brisbane, and was possibly a print acquired by the Berliner Gesellschaft in the same period. This image was published by Dammann in his Anthropologisches-Ethnologisches Album in Photographien (1872-4) in Table 3 (Australia), with the caption "Australier Brautbewerbung", i.e. "Australian courtship". Of the second image, in which we see a sick man being tended to on the left and a camp fire on the right, Morton notes: '[1998.249.7.15] This print was also purchased from the Estate of Friedrich Dammann in 1901. It is almost identical to one in the John Oxley Library, Brisbane (published in Sumner 1986: 163), but with the standing men keeping their heads down instead of facing the camera. It is also thereby probably the work of the Daniel Marquis studio in Brisbane. Sumner proposes that the John Oxley Library print may be the same image as Godeffroy no. 54. In fact there seem to be several slight variations of this scene, including the version in the Archer album in the John Oxley Library, the version in Leiden, and this Dammann copy of an unknown original, possibly collected by the Berliner Gesellschaft. These variations show that several versions of this grouping were produced by the Daniel Marquis studio and disseminated widely. Dammann did not however use this image in his Anthropologisches-Ethnologisches Album in Photographien (1872-4).' The pair of cartes de visite we offer here, with the crucial studio imprints verso, confirm the identity of the photographer of the Pitt Rivers and John Oxley images as Daniel Marquis.

        Elements of Quaternions

      1866 - VI-LIX-762 pp. London, Longmans, Green & co, 1866, in-8, VI-LIX-762 pp, demi-veau tabac de l'époque, dos à faux nerfs, pièce de titre rouge, ex-libris A. S. doré en queue du dos, Édition originale de ce travail fondamental sur les quaternions, extensions des nombres complexes, découverts par l'auteur en 1843 au cours d'une promenade le long du Grand Canal à Dublin. Hamilton étudia, durant les 22 dernières années de sa vie, les propriétés de ces nombres révolutionnaires, dont la multiplication n'est pas commutative, et qui forment un espace de dimension 4, invraisemblable à l'époque. Si les quaternions ne délivrent pas la "clef magique" souhaitée par Hamilton, ils s'avèreront particulièrement utiles aux physiciens, qui développeront l'analyse vectorielle à partir de cet outil. La théorie des quaternions est considérée comme l'une des plus grandes découvertes du XIXe siècle en mathématiques pures. Hamilton publie dans un premier temps les Lectures on Quaternions en 1853 (Dublin, Hodges & Smith) ; puis, dès 1856, il élabore les Elements, afin d'offrir au public un livre de référence qui serait plus accessible. Ainsi écrit-il à De Morgan, en 1861 : "It must, I own, require a somewhat resolute patience to read the Lectures though ; but I trust that, although parts may conveniently be omitted at first reading, the new work is so arranged, and subdivided, as to be quite easily accessible to any student who has a competent knowledge of former mathematics and whishes to understand the subjetc". À mort, les Elements demeurent inachevés ; il sont publiés posthumément par son fils, William Edwin Hamilton. William Rowan Hamilton (1805-1865) fut "de beaucoup le plus grand savant que l'Irlande ait produit" (Bell). Il apprit, grâce aux soins de son oncle, un nombre considérable de langues, notamment le persan. Il entra au Trinity College en 1823 et obtint, dès 1827, le poste d'astronome royal d'Irlande. Outre sa théorie sur les nombres complexes, il s'intéressa à l'optique, à la dynamique, aux équations de degré 5 et aux équations différentielles ; en 1835, il introduisit les fonctions hamiltoniennes, qui expriment la variation dans le temps d'un système physique dynamique. Ses travaux sur les quaternions eurent un retentissement particulier aux États-Unis, qui décernèrent à leur auteur, alors qu'il était sur son lit de mort, le titre de premier membre étranger de la National Academy of Sciences.

      Zürich, 28. IV. 1866. - [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - Clausius gilt als Entdecker des zweiten Hauptsatzes der Thermodynamik, Schöpfer der Begriffe Entropie und Virial, sowie einer der ersten theoretischen Physiker in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts. - „Hochgeehrtester Herr College, Mit schwerem Herzen ergreife ich die Feder, um Ihnen Bericht zu erstatten [.]". --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde.

        The Book of Roses

      Boston: J.E. Tilton and Company, 1866. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. Inscribed to Parkman's protege "Jackson Dawson with kind regards of [signed] F. Parkman 14 Dec. 1871" on first blank. 225pp. Original mauve cloth with gilt lettering, brown endpapers. First edition, first printing. An unsophisticated Good- copy that could use repair as its front and rear hinges are split, with head missing and exposed headband, spine-sunned and edge-worn cloth. A trail of light staining to fore edge. Internally in much better shape with relatively bright, clean pages; small spot of sticker damage to front free endpaper. A scarce signature by the author, a Harvard professor of Horticulture and historian who is best known for his books The Oregon Trail and the seven volume France and England in North America.Also nice horticultural association copy. In the 2015 article "Filing a Missing Rose Claim: Jackson Dawson and the Arnold Rose" Benjamin Whitacre outlines the story of how Parkman brought Rosa rugosa to the US from Asia in 1861 and hired Dawson as its propagator. Dawson proved to be a master of hybridization, creating the Arnold Rose. Despite the Arnold Rose's commercial failure and Dawson's subsequent eclipse, it apparently became known as the "America" rose in 1895 and made a lasting impact in rose-growing circles under that guise.

        O rzadzie reprezentacyjnym … Na jezyk polski przelozyl Gustaw Czernicki.

      1866 - Krakow, Kirchmeyer, 1866. 8vo. Contemporary Polish cloth-backed speckled boards, spine with ms. lettering-piece; pp. [4], vi, [2], ii, [3]-264; wear to extremities but stable; internally, apart from light even browning, due to paper stock, a clean and fresh copy. First edition in Polish of Mill’s Considerations on Representative Government (first, 1861), a work still in print in Poland - and elsewhere - and of utmost importance for the democratic, socialist and nationalist movements of the 19th and 20th century. The journalist Gustaw Czernicki (1827-1911) published this book three years after the Polish uprising, when Mill’s chapters on suffrage, nationality and local representation were â€" and remained â€" central topics of the debate in a country occupied by three imperialist powers. Such a work could only appear semi-officially in the slightly less repressive Austrian occupied part of Poland. ‘In his major work on political institutions, Considerations on Representative Government, the decline of individuality and the growing power of mass opinions are major reasons for Mill’s advocacy of a number of reforms to protect minorities and to ensure that the influence exerted by educated minds on government is greater than that to which their numerical strength entitles them. But it is a wide-ranging book, and its interest lies as much in the discussion of general principles as in the particular recommendations regarding the ballot, proportional representation, and plural voting, not to mention the treatment of local government, federalism, and nationality’ (IESS). Mill himself had been closely following the events in Poland of the 1860s, as his Letter on Poland, published in the Penny Newsman for March 15, 1863 proves. It is ‘a discussion of the insurrectionary movement in Poland which, Mill maintains, is designed to return the lands to the peasants; [it] is popular in origin; and is, because it is a revolution, indicative of the commencement of a new era in the downtrodden countries of Europe’ (MacMinn, Hainds & McCrimmon, p. 94). â€" After the defeat of the January 1863 insurrection in 1865 the possession of liberal, anti-Russian or democratic texts was strictly prohibited by the Tsarist regime and could easily result in banishment to Siberia or imprisonment, which made owners of such books very anxious to leave no ownership inscriptions, as it is the case here. OCLC locates one copy in the Polish NUCAT; RLIN gives no location; KvK adds one copy in the British Library; one in the Austrian National Library, and one in the Bavarian State Library.
