        SANS MERCI; or, Kestrels and Falcons. In Three Volumes.

      London: Tinsley Brothers, 1866. [Lawrence, George Alfred]. SANS MERCI [without mercy] or, Kestrels and Falcons. In Three Volumes. London: Tinsley Brothers, 1866. First Edition. A Near Fine copy in original publisher's blue ripple-grain cloth, gilt, showing only the most minor abrasion to the boards; we doubt many first editions of this title still exist much less an example in this condition. OCLC notes only four copies worldwide in institutional collections. George Alfred Lawrence (1827-1876) was a sensation novelist of a different ilk than Wilkie Collins or M. E. Braddon. His protagonists were often, if not always, men who were equally skilled at fighting, riding, hunting, killing, truth-seeking, and wooing. Not one to shirk a challenge himself, Lawrence sailed to America to fight for the Confederate Army (he was captured and shipped back to England). Lawrence is little read today but he created the original inspiration for the "Beau Geste" character, that self-sacrificing, dashing, honorable crusader who often fought for lost causes usually on behalf of some wronged maiden. In short, Lawrence may be credited with creating today's iconic literary "action hero." This novel takes place in the hazardous English countryside; the title of this book (which suggests birds of prey flying mercilessly at each other talons at the ready) is a metaphor for the evil lawyers and other such villains who are trying to destroy our heroic protagonist's honor and livelihood and romantic prospects with fair maiden. Horse racing, gambling, and several violent fighting scenes also keep things lively. The publisher, Tinsley, is particularly known for the low survival rate of their three-decker first editions.. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine.

        La fleur des chansons amoureuses: ou sont comprins tous les airs de court recueillis aux cabinets des plus rares poetes de ce temps.

      Brüssel, Mertens 1866. - Kl. 8vo (ca. 16,5x10 cm), 509 S., 1 Bl. (Druckfehler in der Numerierung: endet mit 109 (S. 105-109) statt 509 (so vollständig). Mit einer gestochenen Textvignette. Halbledereinband der Zeit mit goldgerpägtem Rücken, Kopfgoldschnitt. Gay (Bibliographie des ouvrages relatifs à l'amour) Band III, S. 345. - Bibliophil gestaltete und seltene Neuausgabe der Originalausgabe von 1600. Das Originaltitelblatt wurde typographisch für diese Ausgabe mit den alten Impressumsangaben verändert vorgebunden und gibt als Druckort Rouen, Chez Adrian de Launay, 1600 an. Die französische Nationalbibliothek führt als einzige für uns nachweisbare Bibliothek via KVK diesen Originaltitel von 1600 und bildet dort das Original-Titelblatt ab. Das Impressum am Ende des Buches gibt die Auflagenhöhe mit 106 (Tiré à cent six exemplaires numérotés) an. Unser Exemplar mit der Nummer 62 auf Papier Hollande. Die falsche Paginierung resultiert aus dem zu dieser Ausgabe herausgebrachten Nachwort (dieses auf den Seiten 105-109): Notice sur la Fleur des Chansons Amoureuses, wohl von Paul Lacroix (vgl. Gay). Dieser beschreibt das Originalexemplar, das eine äußerste Rarität darstellt und in der Bibliothèque de l'Arsenal aufgefunden wurde und für das sich keine weiteren als die bei Gay aufgeführten bibliographischen Hinweise gefunden haben. Das oben erwähnte Exemplar der französischen Nationalbiobliothek wird wohl das im Nachwort zitierte Exemplar sein. Der Verfasser, oder ob es sich gar um mehrere Autoren handelt, ist nicht eruierbar. Eine Sammlung von Chansons (oft mit anstößigen aber deshalb um so populäreren Liedern) die in den Pariser Gassen des 16. Jahrhunderts gesungen wurden! - In einem dekorativen Halbleder-Einband der Zeit, mit ornamentalen und floralen Rückengoldprägungen, auf 5 Zierbünden. - Die Kanten leichter berieben, neueres Exlibris auf dem Vorsatzblatt, Innengelenk hinten etwas angebrochen, die Seiten seitlich unbeschnitten. - Auch als Neuauflage von 1866 sehr selten!

        Gardner's Photographic Sketch Book of the War

      Washington: Philp & Solomons, 1866. 2 volumes, oblong folio. (12 1/4 x 16 3/4 inches). [53]; [53]pp. of text. Mounted on guards throughout, tinted lithographic titles with lettering within integral pictorial borders, 100 original albumen silver print photographs (each approximately 7 x 9 inches) each mounted on card within a lithographed frame with letterpress caption, each image accompanied by a page of letterpress description. Publisher's black morocco, the covers with decorative border tooled in gilt and blind, the upper covers with centrally-placed title and publisher's monogram blocked in gilt, the flat spines divided into six compartments by pairs of gilt fillets, marbled endpapers, gilt edges (expert repairs at joints). Housed in two black morocco backed boxes. A legendary and very rare photographically-illustrated book, with some of the most graphic scenes of the Civil War. One of the most important of American books, and a monument to early American photography. This work, the most famous collection of Civil War photographs, was published in an edition of no more than 200 sets. It includes many of the most celebrated and recognizable images of the war: "Burial Party, Cold Harbor," "A Harvest of Death," "Field Where General Reynolds Fell, Battle of Gettysburg," "President Lincoln on Battle-Field of Antietam," etc. The photographs are organized chronologically, beginning in 1862 and ending with the dedication of the monument at Bull Run to commemorate the Union soldiers who had died there. Unlike Brady, who was in the habit of placing his name on images made by his field operators, Gardner specifically credits each image to the particular photographer responsible, shedding light on the work of some of the most distinguished American photographers of the day. In addition to Gardner, the Sketch Book... includes work by Timothy O'Sullivan, William Pywell, D.B. Woodbury, David Knox, Barnard & Gibson, J. Reekie, and others. These images form perhaps the most important pictorial record of the Civil War, spanning the length of the conflict, from the aftermath of action at Centerville and Manassas in 1862, to the dedication of the monument at Bull Run in June 1865. This work "is one of the most important sources of information that we have on the subject, as from it we learn the names of many men who actually made the photographs of the Civil War, and were employed by Brady and Gardner" (Taft). "The photographs show the terrain of the battles (Bull Run, Manassas, Harper's Ferry, Gettysburg, etc.), encampments, headquarters of the troops, officers and enlisted men, soldiers in drill formation and in the field under fire, and the ruins left after the battles. Limitations in the process of photography did not permit work during the battles; the photographs are remarkable documents of the circumstantial evidence for war. Recent investigations suggest that not every site was recorded just as found by the photographer but that a certain amount of rearranging, including actually moving the corpses, was undertaken in some situations. The captions, conceived in poetic rather than terse journalistic terms, suggest that the authors saw their work as having the human significance we see in many of the photographs of today" (Goldschmidt & Naef). Gardner's work was published by the Washington, D.C. firm of Philp & Solomons, and carried the rather hefty price of $150. The one hundred photographs that were included were selected from a collection of over 3,000 negatives, and the lithographic titlepages were designed by Alfred R. Waud (though designated A.R. Ward on the titlepages), one of the most important illustrators of the day. The publishers issued two slightly separate versions of the book, one in 1865, and the other in 1866. This copy is from the 1866 issue, with the caption "Incidents of the War" removed from each mount. Goldschmidt & Naef Truthful Lens 68; Howes G64; Julie L. Mellby "Gardner's Photographic Sketch Book of the War" in Princeton University Library Chronicle (Winter, 2006), pp.435-40; Nevins II,p.14; Sabin 26635.

        Homographic Chart, of the State Officers and Members of the Second Nevada Legislature: Convened At Carson City, January, 1866

      Carson City, NV: John Church, State Printer. Very Good. 1866. Broadside. Folio broadside approx. 17" x 14", black text on cream paper with ornamental border; folded, in very good condition. Very slight water damage and sunning on the verso; does not affect the text. A rare and interesting Nevada imprint, listing 99 state officers, deputies, clerks, senators, and assemblymen, specifying their office, profession, marital status, place of birth, from where they came, how each voted in 1860, and offices previously held. Among those listed Assemblyman Orion Clemens, age 40 from Missouri, the former and only Secretary of Nevada Territory, and the older brother of Mark Twain. Twain's travels in Nevada with Orion were the inspiration for the semi-autobiographical book of travel, Roughing It. Together they went on a stagecoach journey west. Twain consulted Orion's diary to refresh his memory, and he borrowed heavily from his active imagination for many stories in the book. Unable to make it on an assemblyman's salary, and having failed in other political ambitions as well as a law practice, Clemens vacated the office and left Nevada eight months later. Not in Paher. OCLC locates the Berkeley copy only. Image cropped due to scanner bed size. More detailed images available upon request. ; 17" x 12" .

        Heiteres und Ernstes aus dem Soldatenleben eines alten Officiers.

      original Leinenband, Rundumgoldschnitt, 8, VI, 232 Seiten Zustand: Fadenheftung etwas gelockert, Vorsätze etwas fleckig, sonst gut Vorwort: Wenn ich mich in schon vorgerücktem Alter entschloß, meine Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen während einer fast dreißigjährigen Dienstzeit niederzuschreiben, so verfolgte ich dabei hauptsächlich den Zweck, jüngeren Kameraden einen Einblick zu geben, wie es vor mehr als vierzig Jahren in der Armee aussah und wie sich die Verhältnisse bis unmittelbar nach dem Feldzuge 1866 geändert, gebessert haben. Manches, was hier erzählt wird, dünkt heute kaum glaublich. Ich will mit der Veröffentlichtung meiner Erlebnisse außerdem den Zweck erreichen, daß von Seite der Herren Vorstände von Veteranen- und anderen patriotischen Vereinen den jüngeren Mitgliedern nahe gelegt werde, wie viel günstiger sich für die Angehörigen der Armee die Verhätlnisse gegen früher gestaltet haben. Wenn auch die physischen und geistigen Anforderungen heute mitunter gegen früher bedeutendere sein mögen, so wir zugegeben werden, daß das Ertragen von Strapazen dem Soldaten durch zweckmäßige Adjustierung und Ausrüstung und was die Hauptsache, durch die menschenwürdigere Behandlung leichter gemacht wird weiters dürfte durch die Veröffentlichung meiner Erzählungen manches bisher unwichtig Beurtheilte - und das betrifft Nordböhmen, als den im Feldzugsjahre 1866 stark betroffenen Theil - aufgeklärt werden. Indem ich somit meine Mittheilungen der Öffentlichkeit übergebe, sollen dieselben mit der ergebenen Bitte begleitet sein, es möge das Urtheil über manches darin Vorkommende wohlwollend sein gegenüber dem Verfasser.
