        THE DREAM OF GERONTIUS.

      London Burns Lambert and Oates 1866 - SECOND EDITION IN LIMP CLOTH, SAME YEAR AS THE FIRST. 1866. Small 8vo, approximately 120 x 75 mm, 4¾ x 3 inches, pages: [4], [5]-55, collation: A1-D4, original publisher's blind stamped brown limp cloth, gilt title to upper cover, original pale yellow endpapers. Slight rubbing to binding, first pastedown slightly creased, title page has slight blemish at the bottom due to the endpaper adhering to it, shallow turning crease to top corners of first few pages, otherwise a very good copy. The Dream of Gerontius consists of the prayer of a dying man, and angelic and demonic responses. The poem, written after Newman's conversion from Anglicanism to Roman Catholicism, explores his new Catholic-held beliefs of the journey from death through Paradise to God and thence to Purgatory. The poem follows the main character as he nears death and then reawakens as a soul, preparing for judgment. Newman uses the death and judgement of Gerontius as a prism through which the reader is drawn to contemplation of their own fear of death and sense of unworthiness before God. His depiction of the overwhelmed Gerontius in Phase Seven of the poem, who begs to be taken for purgatorial cleansing rather than diminish the perfection of God and his courts of Saints and Angels by his continued presence, has become a popular expression of man's desire for healing through redemptive suffering. This scene of the poem has done much for the rehabilitation of the doctrine of purgatory which had previously come to be seen as a fearful terror rather than a state of final purification essentially positive in nature. Newman said that the poem "was written by accident – and it was published by accident". He wrote it up in fair copy from fifty-two scraps of paper between 17 January and 7 February 1865 and published it in May and June of the same year, in two parts in the Jesuit periodical The Month. The poem inspired a choral work of the same name by Edward Elgar in 1900. (Wikipedia). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        Feminist Anna Dickinson Refuses to Apologize

      1866 - Autograph Letter Signed, to A. Boyd. August 1, 1866. 2 pp. "Dr. Holmes somewhere says that, 'Apology is but one form of Egotism.' So I shall make none. Nevertheless, - I had I earlier seen your letter, which had been in my hands, I should have sooner answered it ."Anna Elizabeth Dickinson (1842-1932) was a gifted orator and the first woman to speak before Congress. She was removed from a clerkship at the U.S. Mint for criticizing General George McClellan's handling of the war. She campaigned for the Republicans in 1863, and continued her lyceum speaking tour after the war. After a stint acting in Broadway plays, her sister had her committed to a mental institution. Upon her release, she sued those who had her committed and the newspapers that had labeled her insane. She won in court, but the press retaliated by stopping coverage.

Ich drängte ihn die Sachen abzuschicken was er versprach aber doch verschob bis er mir erklärte das kann erst zu Weihnachten geschehen weil er eine große Bestellung von Röhren von Ruhmkorff für diese Zeit abliefern und Tag und Nacht arbeiten müsse. Ich war ärgerlich und hatte Ihnen die Sachen selbst verpacken lassen [.] Ich glaubte die Sendung abgegangen und Ihr Brief mußte mich daher sehr befremden.

        Gorge, Lookout Mountain

      , 1866. 1866. Mounted albumen photograph, approximately 10 3/4 x 14 1/4 inches. Printed caption beneath the image. Unique large albumen Civil War photograph by George Barnard.Barnard had worked as a photographer documenting the Civil War from about 1861, initially working for Mathew Brady and Edward Anthony, and then, from December 1863, for the Topographical Branch of the Department of Engineers, Army of the Cumberland, based in Nashville. Under the direction of Captain of Engineers Orlando M. Poe, Barnard ran the army's photographic operations. Bernard continued to work for the Union army until June 1865, recording a number of well-known locations, and taking part in Sherman's campaign, behind the front lines, taking photographs in his capacity as an official army photographer.In 1866, Barnard would publish his monumental Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign . "[It] is a remarkable work of great symbolic, historic, and artistic power. It is a result of a complex interweaving of Barnard's personal vision, nineteenth-century pictorial conventions, and larger ideas about war and the American landscape. The album was the most ambitious project of Barnard's career, and has long been recognized as a landmark in the history of photography" (Davis p.170). Indeed, the work has been called the first great landscape photobook.Interestingly, the above image is not found in Barnard's Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign, instead comprising part of the impressive work done at Lookout Mountain for General Orlando M. Poe and the Corps of Topographical Engineers. "Barnard's photographs from the summit of Lookout Mountain were taken in several positions. It is clear that he was fascinated by the aesthetic potential of this site, and used a set of visual motifs in a variety of permutations. These motifs included the majestic sweep of the landscape itself, the sinuous path of the Tennessee River, the contrast between rocky outcroppings in the foreground and the forested landscape below, and the presence of self-absorbed spectators within this natural grandeur. While central to the landscape art of this era, these themes had rarely been so eloquently expressed in photography" (Davis, p. 67).Keith F. Davis. George N. Barnard Photographer of Sherman's Campaign (Kansas City, 1990).

        Two folk-art pencil drawings of African-American freedmen workers on the Mississippi River paddle-wheeler W H Osborn

      Mississippi River between St. Louis and New Orleans, 1866. Unbound. Very good. These two hand-drawn naïve pencil sketches appear on opposite sides of an 8" x 12.5" leaf of ruled notepaper. The smaller of the two drawings measures approximately 4" x 4.5" and the larger 4.5" x 12.5". Both are captioned. The sheet has three horizontal storage folds with some spots of faint brown staining. One side shows some pencil transfer from heavy penciling of the subject's face and hair that occurred when the leaf was folded. The smaller image, which is titled "Steward - Stmr W.H. Osborn," shows an upper body profile of a finely dressed African-American wearing a high-collar, cravat, and coat. The larger is a full-length drawing, titled The Lamp Lighter on Steamer W.H. Osborn," of a different similarly dressed African-American man adjusting an oil lamp. The W.H. Osborn was built in 1865 by Commodore William J. Koutz, a riverboat pilot and captain who built, bought, managed what was said to be the largest fleet of steamships operating on western and southern rivers. The Osborn, which operated as a St. Louis - New Orleans packet, was practically destroyed in a horrendous fire in January 1867 but eventually rebuilt. Jonathan O. Simmons was a wealthy plantation owner who had moved south from Minnesota after the Civil War and purchased Island 93 and the adjacent land on both sides of the Mississippi where he employed African-Americans hired via the Freedmen's Bureau to harvest lumber and grow cotton that he shipped north and south on riverboats. This is a great pair of folk-art renderings of recently freed slaves who found employment of a Mississippi paddle wheeler. Very scarce. As of 2017, no similar folk art drawings of freed African-American steamboat rivermen are held by institutions per OCLC, none are in the trade, and none are shown in auction records at ABPC, Rare Book Hub, or Worthpoint.

        The Female Review: Life of Deborah Sampson, the Female Soldier in the War of Revolution, with an Introduction and Notes by John Adams Vinton

      Boston: J. K. Wiggin & Wm. Parsons Lunt 1866 - From an edition of 250 small quarto (22 cm) copies hand-numbered and initialed by the publishers Wiggin & Lunt (this being copy '79'). There were also 35 royal quarto copies issued. Boards are 1/2 leather and 1/2 marbled paper with spine bands and gilt tooling; top edge gilt; marbled endpapers; red & black printed title page; xxxii, [5], 38-267 pp, illus. The scarce biography of Deborah Sampson, a Mass. woman who enlisted in the Continental Army in 1782, albeit through subterfuge. In 1792, Sampson successfully petitioned the Mass. State Legislature for a pension, which was initially denied to her because she was a woman. The Female Review was originally written and published in 1797 by the educator, publisher, bookseller, and newspaper editor, Herman Mann, who had befriended Sampson. According to Mann there were 1,500 copies printed and "quickly devoured by the booksellers" (qtd. in Hiltner, 212). There is unanimous consensus that Mann's account was sensationalized and only partially reflected Sampson's life and wartime experiences. Hiltner accuses him of "attempt[ing] to shape an icon of national virtue and a myth of the early republic from the raw material of a cross-dressing soldier," while in his introduction to this edition, Vinton says Mann "aimed at weaving a web of gaudy colors, which should strike strongly on the fancy of his readers." He attempted to correct these overindulgences in a revised and enlarged edition, which was allegedly based on a closer collaboration with Sampson herself, but both he and Sampson died before it was published. This edition was edited by the geneaologist and minister, John Adams Vinton, and includes an introduction and copies notes by him throughout, as well as quotations from Mann's unpublished manuscript. This edition was later republished in 1916 and 1972. Scarce. We find no copies of either the 1797 edition or this limited edition in commerce; less than half a dozen copies located institutionally via a somewhat convoluted set of WorldCat entries. Leather worn all over, most heavily at joints and spine ends with board tips exposed; one mark of dampstaining to the top of half-title and frontis, but not affecting portrait, otherwise no foxing or marks of any kind; a VG copy overall.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

      New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1866 First edition, second and earliest obtainable issue, with variant A page [5] with "Alice! A childishÂ…", variant A page [6] with "Rabbit Hole," variant A title page with the 'b' in 'bye' directly above and somewhat to the right of the 'T' in 'Tenniel.' Publisher's red cloth, with an illustration of Alice to the front board in gilt, illustration of the Cheshire Cat to the rear board in gilt, lettered in gilt, all edges gilt, black coated endpapers. Very good, with some toning and dimming to the spine, discreet repairs to the spine ends, light soiling to the boards, corners lightly rubbed and bumped, spine cracked and holding inside the front cover, Mission ownership stamp the front pastedown, one or two faint spots to the otherwise very clean pages. A very square and attractive copy, very scarce in the original cloth. Housed in a custom folding box. Taylor 2. The true first issue of Alice was published by Macmillan in London in a print run of 2,000 copies, but was quickly suppressed because neither author nor artist approved of the quality of the reproductive illustrations. Macmillan sold its remaining pages to Appleton in New York, who bound this second issue with a cancel title page. Aside from the new title, the Appleton Alice agree with all textual issues of the 1865 Alice, including the slight variants on page [5] and [6], which neither indicate collecting priority nor earlier printing. Similarly, the slightly different Appleton title pages are the result of the book being "printed in pairs from two nominally identical settings of type." Only a handful of the true first issue survived (many were donated to children's hospitals), making this second issue the first obtainable issue. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson wrote the nonsensical story Alice's Adventures in Wonderland under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll for Alice Liddell, who was a frequent subject of Dodgson's revolutionary portrait photography. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland includes a black and white frontispiece along with forty-two in-text illustrations by John Tenniel, Dodgson's frequent artist collaborator.. Illus. by Tenniel, John. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

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.

        David Dellepiane, Loterie Ville de Marseille, 1899.

      Loterie Ville de MarseilleAffiche ontworpen door David Dellepiane (1866-1925), lithografie uitgegeven in 1899 door Moullot. Afmetingen (lijst): 165 x 111 cm.Het lithograferen zoals dit in 1870 door Jules Cheret werd geperfectioneerd tot een drukproces van drie verschillende stenen platen (met daarop meestal rode, gele en blauwe inkt) was een doorslaand succes.Het bleef een gecompliceerd proced?, maar de intensiteit van de kleur en de veelheid aan nuances die konden worden aangebracht, bood tot dan toe ongekende mogelijkheden. Deze uitvinding leidde er toe, beeld en tekst aantrekkelijk in groot formaat te kunnen combineren, waarmee de lithografische poster een baanbrekende innovatie werd.De poster bepaalde al snel het straatbeeld in de groeiende steden van Europa en Amerika. Parijs, Milaan en New York waren getransformeerd naar open lucht kunst galerie?n en maakten de weg vrij voor het moderne reclame tijdperk.David Dellepiane volgde met deze poster voor de stad Marseille de door Alphonse Mucha in 1894 ge?ntroduceerde zwierige art nouveau stijl.Prijs: ?3.850,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

      New York: D. Appleton and Company 1866 - First edition, second and earliest obtainable issue, with variant A page [5] with "Alice! A childish ", variant A page [6] with "Rabbit Hole," variant A title page with the 'b' in 'bye' directly above and somewhat to the right of the 'T' in 'Tenniel.' Publisher's red cloth, with an illustration of Alice to the front board in gilt, illustration of the Cheshire Cat to the rear board in gilt, lettered in gilt, all edges gilt, black coated endpapers. Very good, with some toning and dimming to the spine, discreet repairs to the spine ends, light soiling to the boards, corners lightly rubbed and bumped, spine cracked and holding inside the front cover, Mission ownership stamp the front pastedown, one or two faint spots to the otherwise very clean pages. A very square and attractive copy, very scarce in the original cloth. Housed in a custom folding box. Taylor 2. The true first issue of Alice was published by Macmillan in London in a print run of 2,000 copies, but was quickly suppressed because neither author nor artist approved of the quality of the reproductive illustrations. Macmillan sold its remaining pages to Appleton in New York, who bound this second issue with a cancel title page. Aside from the new title, the Appleton Alice agree with all textual issues of the 1865 Alice, including the slight variants on page [5] and [6], which neither indicate collecting priority nor earlier printing. Similarly, the slightly different Appleton title pages are the result of the book being "printed in pairs from two nominally identical settings of type." Only a handful of the true first issue survived (many were donated to children's hospitals), making this second issue the first obtainable issue. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson wrote the nonsensical story Alice's Adventures in Wonderland under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll for Alice Liddell, who was a frequent subject of Dodgson's revolutionary portrait photography. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland includes a black and white frontispiece along with forty-two in-text illustrations by John Tenniel, Dodgson's frequent artist collaborator.
