        FLORIDA / BAHAMAS / CUBA: CARTA DEL GRAN BANCO DE BAHAMA PARTE DE LA ISLA DE CUBA Y COSTA DE LA FLORIDA.

      Lithograph with some details heightened in original colour (Good, some faint old stains, a few very minor abrasions to surface, filled loss in lower left corner of blank margin), 91 x 58 cm (36 x 23 inches). - Madrid, 1866. An excellent large-format sea chart of Southeastern Florida, the Bahamas and central Cuba, by the Spanish Navy’s Dirección de Hidrografía, one of the finest mid-19th Century maps of the region. - This splendid sea chart embraces the Southeastern coast of Florida (from Matecumbe Key up north to the Indian River area), much of the Bahamas and the central portion of Cuba. Notably, the chart features the eastern part of the Straits of Florida (which separate Florida from Cuba and the Bahamas), one of the world’s key shipping lanes. The chart was composed by the Dirección de Hidrografía, the chart-making arm of Spain’s Armada Real, one of the world’s finest makers of hydrography. The coasts are delineated with great exactness, predicated on the best scientific sources, while the seas feature copious nautical information, including bathymetric soundings and hazards. The mapping of Florida’s coasts are still largely based on the epic surveys conducted by William Gerard De Brahm for the British government from 1765 to 1771. De Brahm’s surveys were since been refined by the U.S. Coast Survey program (which aimed to systematically map all of America’s coasts). Much of the topographical detail was supplied from the surveys of the U.S. Amy’s Topographical Bureau, conducted by Colonel J. J. Albert during the 1830s. Southern Florida was then very sparsely populated by European Americans, in part because of the tropical climate (to which almost all European Americans were unaccustomed) and the continued presence of the Seminole Native Nation, fierce warriors who were not all that welcoming of American encroachment upon their land. That being said, Miami is marked (although then consisted only of the small U.S. Army outpost of Fort Dallas, founded 1836, as Miami proper would not be founded until 1894), along with ‘Cayo Vizcaino’ (Key Biscayne). Further north is Fort Lauderdale; ‘Boca Ratones’ (Boca Raton); and ‘Fte. Jupiter’ (Jupiter Beach), nearby which is marked the ‘Batalla de Jessups en 24 Enero 1838’, referring to an altercation between the U.S. Army and the Seminoles during the Second Seminole War (1835-42). Arrows note the path of the Gulf Stream, the powerful ocean current that ran from the Gulf of Mexico north along the Florida coast and then across the Atlantic to Europe. The chart’s mapping of the Bahamian Archipelago and the Great Bahama Bank embraces Grand Bahama, Andros, Abaco, New Providence, as well as other isles. The excellent charting is predicated on scientific surveys conducted by Britain’s Royal Navy. Most of these surveys were conducted by Captain Richard Owen aboard the HMS Blossom during the 1830s, although aspects are based on the works of Lieutenant Anthony De Mayne, conducted in 1827, and Captain Edward Barnett, undertaken in 1838. The sounding of the ‘Gran Banco de Bahama’ (Great Bahama Bank) represents an especially impressive feat of hydrography. The mapping of Cuba is based on Spanish surveys conducted by Don Ventura de Barcaizetegui in 1793 and José de Rio Cosa in 1804, with more recent improvements made by teams working for the Armada Real. The present chart would have been of great importance to both the Armada Real and commercial shipping as it lay along a critical juncture of the sea route between Havana and Spain. The chart was prepared by the draftsman Juan Noguera at the Dirección de Hidrografía and first published in 1858, with the present edition updated and published in 1866, as indicated by the note ‘Correjida y adicionada en 1866’. The chart was prepared under the direction of Don José María de Quesada, the Spanish Naval Minister. The Dirección de Hidrografía was founded in 1797 and proceeded to publish charts of especially fine quality, predicated on the best sources, used by mariners internationally, especially in the Hispanic world.

        Plá? Koruny ?eské ?ili up?jmná slowa Staro-?echa propow?d?ná milým kragan?m léta bjdy 1866 [Lamentation of the Bohemian Crown or heartfelt words of an Old-Czech, held forth to his dear compatriots in the year of sorrow 1866]

      Trowitzsch und Sohn, Berlin 1866 - Octavo (19 × 10.5 cm). Original printed self-wrappers with brown paper spinestrip and title vignette; 16 pp. Paper evenly toned due to stock, else a very well-preserved copy. [Illegal Anti-Habsburg Brochure Printed in Berlin]. Illegally published pamphlet urging Czech independence from Austro-Hungary. Published anonymously in Berlin during the Austro-Prussian War (1866), it was written by Anton Kotik (1840-?) and reflects the political ambitions of Czech journalist and writer Josef F. Fri? and Count Rudolf von Thurn und Taxis. After a long list of injustices the Czech people have suffered at the hands of Austria, Kotik argues for a radical divorce from the Austrian government and an independent Czech state under Prussian patronage. Unrealistically though these aims were, the brochure was effectively intended to cause an armed uprising against Austria in the summer of 1866. Because it could not be published in Bohemia, Kotik and Fri? traveled to Berlin, where they reached an agreement with the publisher (Thurn und Thaxis provided the funding). Trowitzsch und Sohn were able to set the book in the Czech Schwabacher type, which was no longer used in Bohemia at the time. The booklets reached Prague around August 23, just as the Peace of Prague was being signed. But though this meant that the Prussian troops would leave Prague, the brochure still caused a great stir among Czech intellectuals and led to great vigilance by the Austrian police. It was immediately forbidden and its possession repeatedly prosecuted. Ignát Herrmann recounts that many readers burned the brochure afterwards, fearing punishment. Because of its scarcity, other patriots copied it by hand and distributed it among their friends (Sebrané spisy, vol. 24, p. 174). Miraculously, the Austrian authorities were unable to determine the real author, despite the fact that one of the main distributors was imprisoned for twelve months. Kotik only revealed himself to be the author in 1919, shortly after the declaration of Czechoslovak independence and the establishment of the First Republic, when he reprinted the pamphlet with his commentary. Kotik passed away soon after, in the knowledge that the decade-long struggle had not been in vain. Outside the Czech Republic, KVK and OCLC only show the copy at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin.

        Adventures in Canada, being two Months on the Tobique, New Brunswick.

      London, Smith, Elder & Co., [1866]. 8vo. Original blue pebble-grained cloth, ornamented and lettered in gilt, all edges gilt; pp. 196, engraved frontispiece with tissue guard, very light wear to binding, light offsetting from endpapers, near fine; provenance: engraved school prize plate from Musselburgh, awarded for the session 1870-71 inside front cover. Very rare first edition of this narrative of an anonymous settler's journey to New Brunswick in 1851. The narrator tells us about rambles and explorations of the river Tobique, sleighing, friendly encounters with First Nation Canadians and the immense cold. The book, which appeared as well as Two months on the Tobique, New Brunswick, an emigrant's journal, 1851 is ascribed to one M.C.S. London, but this is spurious and the work has to be considered anonymous. The narrative breaks off abruptly after the narrator has reached St. Johns, explains some colonization plans to the government and falls ill. The book ends with 'St. John's in the winter - boys coasting - everybody slides - pretty girl go delicately smiling and sliding - boys skate - dangerous to go through streets' (p. 196). In the preface is explained that our author had explored the possibility of settling in this rather desolate part of Canada by living for two months in a wigwam during winter. 'The writer of these records, which were not intended for publication, is no more' (p. vii). COPAC locates a single copy, in the British Library.

        The new and heretofore unfigured species of the birds of North America.

      For the Author New York -1869 1866 - Two volumes in 1, large folio (60 x 47 cm). 73 fine hand-coloured lithographs after Elliot, Wolf, and Sheppard, including an additional plate, Parus Occidentalis, also after Elliot, bound in introduction, 21 India proof engravings by Linton after Sheppard mounted in text, occasional light browning to text, one plate with 2 small marginal tears, modern green half morocco gilt, top edge gilt. The finest ornithological work published in the United States, by the finest bird artist in America after Audubon - The Bradley-Martin copy of the first edition, limited to 200 copies only. Only 71 names appear on the original subscribers list. Nearly all the species are illustrated life-size. The work is dedicated to the Alexander Wilson, "pioneer of American ornithologists", and the preface additionally pays homage to Audubon. The book was intended as a sort of supplement to Audubon's and Wilson's works, as it shows birds which are not included in their works. Amongst the many fine illustrations, mention should be made of Wolf's depiction of the falco islandicus which has become an icon of ornithological illustration. The additional plate, though mentioned in the list of plates, is not assigned a plate number and is instead given the note: See Introduction. Although this plate has been recorded in other copies, none of the cited bibliographies call for, or mention, it. With celebrated provenance: H. Bradley Martin was a notable collector of books in the mid-twentieth century, and his collection was particularly renowned for its fine bird books which included a complete first edition double-elephant folio Audubon Birds.

        THE BELTON ESTATE

      1866. [in original wrappers] A Novel. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1866. 4 pp terminal ads (with Novels list ending with No. 261). Original light brown printed wrappers. First Edition printed in America, issued as No. 263 of Harper's "Library of Select Novels." As Smith describes in great detail, in preparing the UK edition for publication, Chapman & Hall, arranged to send to Lippincott, of Philadelphia, some sets of sheets -- to the great astonishment and irritation of Trollope himself -- who when he discovered the plan, told C&H not to do so, but it happened nonetheless. Thus there was an edition, printed in England but bearing a Lippincott title page dated 1866, bound in cloth and for sale in America at $1.50 by a little before December 21, 1865; this Lippincott issue is actually the true first edition of the novel -- as C&H's three-volume edition did not come out until December 30th. Harper, undoubtedly pirating from Lippincott's edition, got this edition onto the streets on January 5, 1866, priced at only 50 cents as usual (in wrappers only -- no copies were issued in cloth).~This is a very good copy: both the front and rear wrapper are essentially complete (one small corner of the rear wrapper chipped away); the fragile spine of the wrapper is lacking about one-third (about an inch and a half at each end), though most of the print (title and author) remains. Smith pp 80-81 (and see pp 75-79 for the Lippincott history). Provenance: this copy's title page bears the penciled signature of the Trollope bibliographer Walter Smith.

        Exotic ornithology containing figures and descriptions of new or rare species of American birds

      London Bernard Quaritch -1869 1866 - Imperial 4to., 100 hand-coloured lithographs by Joseph Smit, red half morocco, gilt, raised bands, top edge gilt, a very handsome example. Published in 13 parts between October 1866 and November 1869, the preface states it was originally intended to cover "the many new and rare ornithologicalic forms that have been recently discovered in nearly every part of the world's surface. As it progressed, however, the authors found that it would be more convenient to restrict it to the birds of the Neotropical Region -- that is America south of the United States. No other part of the world can vie with Tropical America in the richness of its avifauna; and nowhere else have so many brilliant discoveries been recently made." "The authors' original plan was that their work should form a continuation of well-known atlases, such as Buffon and Daubenton. According to the plan, the work was to give figures and descriptions of new and rare birds from all parts of the world; however, the authors soon limited the task to the birds of the Neotropical region" (Anker). "The plates are all by Mr. Smit; they are very beautiful. The whole number of species figured is 104, referring to 51 genera. In most cases, a systematic list of the other American species of the same genus is appended to the final illustration of each, thereby enlarging the scope and greatly increasing the value of the work. Each of the species is systematically treated with synonymy, diagnosis and critical and biographical matter. The authors are the highest authorities in neotropical ornithology and this work is a monument of erudition, industry and artistic excellence" (Coues). "Smit has done an excellent job with these plates, for the lovingly detailed birds stand out sharply against their backgrounds of trees, branches and leaves. It is obvious that Smit enjoyed painting the leaves as well as the birds, for they are beautifully executed."

        PROYECTO de ensanche y embellecimiento de la Ciudad de Sevilla. Dedicado al Illmo. Sr. Alcalde Corregidor. Por un sevillano antiguo oficial de ingenieros.

      Sevilla, 1866. - MANUSCRIT. In-folio. 3ff. 36pp. 1 dessin dépliant sur le système des égouts. 5ff. Maroquin vert avec une grande guirlande dorée et décor floral encadrant les plats, titre frappé en lettres dorées sur le plat supérieur (reliure de l'époque). Projet général d'extension urbaine pour Séville proposant diverses solutions pour moderniser la ville, au même titre que Barcelone, Valladolid, Bilbao ou Saragosse; l'auteur ambitionnait en effet de voir Séville devenir le premier port de commerce du sud de l'Espagne, faisant de la ville "le Liverpool espagnol" avec le fleuve comme artère principale. L'auteur proposait notamment d'abattre les murailles, de construire ponts et réservoirs, de restaurer des bâtiments emblématiques comme la prison, les marchés ou les arènes, de moderniser le système d'égouts ou la canalisation du Guadalquivir, etc. Une note manuscrite au crayon indique que l'auteur pourrait être le jésuite Martín Bandera. Bien que l'auteur qualifie lui-même ses propositions de rêves, ou même de délires, quelques-unes d'entre elles coincident avec les réformes urbanistiques réalisées en 1869 par les architectes Aurelio et Juan Francisco de Paula Álvarez (démolition des murailles, rénovation du système souterrain des égouts et de l'approvisionnement d'eau, etc.). Dessin dépliant sur le système des égouts. Le texte fait référence à deux dessins additionnels qui ne figurent pas dans le manuscrit. Magnifique reliure ornementée de style néoclassique.

Berggren left home to study photography in Berlin in the 1850s and settled in Constantinople in 1866. A foremost photographer of his age, Berggren "made a great contribution to the art of photography — particularly landscape photography — in Istanbul" (Öztuncay, Photographers of Constantinople, p.291). When the Swedish King Gustaf V (1858-1950) visited Istanbul in 1885, he presented Berggren with a decoration. Berggren was also awarded an Ottoman decoration by Sultan Abdulhamid II (1876-1909).

First German Edition!. - Franz Cornelius Donders (1818-1889), probably the greatest Dutch physician of the nineteenth century and one of the finest ophthalmologists of any era, Donders was professor on the Utrecht faculty from 1848 until his death. His great work on the Anomalies of Refraction and Accommodation, which was written originally in Dutch, the manuscript translated into English. and published for the New Sydenham Society in 1864. As a contribution to physiological optics, this book ranks with the labors of Helmholtz.

It contains Donder's explanations of astigmatism, his definition of aphakia and hypermetropia, his sharp distinctions between myopia and hypermetropia, etc.' "Enthält in klarer, bündiger und tiefgründlicher Darstellungsweise die ganze Summe unsrer gegenwärtigen Kenntnisse über die physiologischen und pathologischen Refraktions- und Akkommodations-Verhältnisse des menschlichen Auges" W. Zehender. " .. ein Buch, das aus Theorie und Praxis zusammenfließend sich auf zahlreiche neuartige Beobachtungen am Kranken stütze und entsprechend Methoden zur Untersuchung brachte. Doners gilt als Neubegründer der Dioptrik. Er schuf klare Begriffe über das Schielen, über Konvergenz, Akkommodation usw., er gab die wichtigsten Grundlagen zum Ausbau der modernen Brillenlehre und veranlaßte so die Augenärzte, die Brillenverordnung selber in die Hand zu nehmen und sie nicht mehr den herumziehenden Brillenhändler zu überlassen.

        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.
