Grandville, J.J.
Paris: Garnier Frères, 1867. Very good plus.. Magnificently illustrated and hand-colored "nouvelle édition" of Grandville's splendid work re-imagining flowers as stylish Parisian women. Grandville's plates are justly famous for their unusual combination of mid 19th-century whimsy and stunningly modern undercurrent, with a pipe-smoking beetle observing a frond-clad Mimosa Pudica, two pink blossom-ornamented Hawthorns pull away from a shark-like pair of garden shears, and many more wondrously imaginative plates. Fashion, art, and botany meld in the execution of these images, wherein women show off garments fantastically shaped by scientifically accurate flowers. A bright and beautiful copy of this resurrected edition of Grandville's famous women flowers, with the plates retouched for engraving and coloring by M. Maubert.

GUNTER, Emilie Mary
Hayes & Zell, Philadelphia, 1867. Quarto. Measuring 7.75" x 9". 80pp., with various color sheets. Black leather boards with elaborate gilt decorations and "Remembrance Album" on the front board and issued with eight steel engravings by A.L. Dick. Erosion at the spine ends, edgewear on the boards and with some pages age-toned and with light foxing, and a few loose lease, else very good. A remembrance album dating from 1861 to 1867 filled with written poems and praise to Emilie Mary Gunter from her friends and family in Augusta, Georgia, as well as Charleston, Bedford County, Virginia, Atlanta, and other places. Laid in is a 6.5" x 4" cabinet card photograph of a young girl, possibly Miss Gunter. The album contains more than 50 poems written to Miss Gunter on various occasions included birthdays. One such poem which reads: "Thus, when thou view-est this page alone May mine attract thy pensive eye And when by thee that name is read Perchance in some succeeding year Reflect on me as on the dead And think my heart is buried here your sincere friend Eugenia E. Veulquez." Gunter was also written love poems by her admirers, a friend by the initials D.F.L. writes: "I bring no gift of passion I breathe no tone of love But the freshness and the purity Of a feeling far above I love to turn to thee, fair girl As one within whose heart Earth hath no stain of vanity And fickleness no part." Other poems are more solemn with themes of "death," "dark times," and "remembering friends," presumably reflecting the harsh reality of the life of a young woman living in the South during the Civil Wa … [Click Below for Full Description]

[New Orleans, 1867. Good.. [230]pp. Small folio. Loose gatherings with backing stiff marbled wrapper. Formerly bound with cloth strips at top edge. Some entries tipped onto leaves; most entries with accompanying cancelled revenue stamp affixed at left margin. Occasional wear at edges; light tanning and offsetting. A manuscript receipt book of transactions by a New Orleans firm, commission merchants Bower, Garner, & Harrison, recording payments made by the firm to their many clients and suppliers, with each entry signed by the recipient of the payment. Often the reason for the payment is given, as in, "amt. Bill of Engine and marine pump furnished A. Manual Esq.," or, "Received of Messrs. Bower & Garner Feb. 5/66 Five Hundred no/100 Dollars Advance on Cotton." Other times, the name of the ship involved is noted, or simply the amount and name of recipient with the signature. In several cases, receipts are affixed to the pages rather than written in. There are approximately five entries per page dating from February 1866 to February 1867, with payments made often in the high hundreds and thousands of dollars, well demonstrating the scope and extent of their business. According to internal and contemporary evidence, the firm was involved primarily in the cotton trade, and seems to have operated continuously through the Civil War and Reconstruction. Their offices in New Orleans were at the intersection of Canal and Carondelet, and they also maintained an outpost up the Mississippi River in Natchez.

[SLAVE TRADE].
VI, 76 pp.Official document, as presented to the British Houses of Parliament, containing letters and reports from British commissioners and officers, written in 1867, concerning the suppression of slave trade in Arabia (Aden, Mukalla, Muscat), Africa (Sierra Leone, Cape of Good Hope, Luanda, Zanzibar, Madagascar, Somalia, Mozambique), Asia (Bombay), and America (Havana, New York). The majority of the commissioners briefly state that there hasn't been any activity in the slave trade in their region. However, at Africa's east coast, especially around Mozambique and Zanzibar, the reports regularly mention captured dhows with slaves on board, mostly heading for Mukalla, Muscat, Persia or the Red Sea: "a greater part of the slaves exported from the coast of Africa find their way into Persia" (p. 71). Sometimes new laws against slavery and slave trade are included. The reports from the naval officers also deal with commerce, rebellions, politics, etc. In very good condition.

HUME, William Fraser.
XLIX, [1], 522, 160 pp.Scarce work by William Fraser Hume (1867-1949), printed and published in Cairo, giving a detailed account of the origin and development of the earth and weighing various recent theories. The book begins with a broad perspective in chapters on the nature of the universe, the origin of the solar system, etc., and narrows down to the earth's internal structure and its pre-Cambrian state. The first half of the twentieth-century saw several revolutions in this field, and the present book gives special emphasis to these new developments, as well as to specific applications of these theories to the geology of Egypt. Discussed in detail are geological radioactivity, pioneered by George Darwin and John Joly in 1903, and Arthur Holmes's 1911 application of it to radiometric dating, finally debunking Lord Kelvin's famous 1862 dismissal of the idea that the earth might be more than a few tens of millions of years old (Lord Kelvin dated the earth based on thermodynamic principles, though one of his less influential contemporaries is now known to have shown that it could be much older if one considers thermodynamic convection, which accounts for more of the error than radioactivity). The theory of continental drift, proposed less scientifically on occasion since the sixteenth-century, was first set out in detail by the meteorologist, Alfred Wegener in the first half of the 1910's. Though leading geologists still scoffed at the theory proposed by this "weatherman" until supported by plate tectonics and magnetic field data ca. 1960, Hume keeps an open mind and says t … [Click Below for Full Description]

IV, 741; IV, 54, 16, 48, 36, 36, 12, 6, 30, 12 pp.First edition of a travelogue through Asia, written by Carl Gustav Mannerheim (1867-1951), future president of Finland, 1944-1946. In 1906, Mannerheim, then a colonel, was sent on an expedition to Asia. "The object of this expedition was to study conditions in the interior of Northern China, collect statistical materials and perform various tasks of a military nature", says Mannerheim in the preface. Russia wanted to know the state of affairs in China due to the reforms and modernization undertaken by the Qing Dynasty. Besides that, Mannerheim wanted to collect items of scientific interest for the National Museum in Helsinki and to study the little-known peoples living in Northern China. This makes the work, with its numerous illustrations by photographs, an interesting anthropological account as well.Number 33 out of limited edition of 100 and signed by the author. With owner's inscription of Ewald Henttu on flyleaf, dated 1940. Very good copy; binding slightly rubbed along the extremities.

This book gives a lively account of the voyage of the Fly in Australian and Australasian waters, although the boat is her … [Click Below for Full Description]

JONES, Owen.
London: S.& T. Gilbert, 1867. Folio (34 x 24 cm.). pp.15. Bound by Aquarius in half burgundy morocco, spine with raised bands and gilt compartments, titled in gilt direct. A handsome copy. 100 full page colour plates in chromolithograph. Examples of Chinese Ornament selected from objects in the South Kensington Museum and other collections (1867) presented the public with 100 plates of designs taken from a wide range of decorative and applied arts. Jones transformed motifs found on ceramics, textiles and enamels into densely crafted fields of pattern that could be used as inspiration by contemporary designers. As the title indicates, many of the pattern motifs were sourced from the V&A's early holdings, as well as from a circle of collectors with links to the museum. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

[Hobart-Hampden, Augustus C.]
London: John Camden Hotten, 1867. iv,123pp. plus [24]pp. of advertisements. 12mo. Original maroon cloth, spine gilt. Spine very faintly sunned. Bookplate and binder's ticket on rear pastedown. Previous owner's inkstamp on first page of preface and first page of text. Very good. One of the best accounts of blockade-running during the Civil War. The author, who became well known under his Turkish title of Hobart Pasha, states in the preface: "...I am desirous of giving publicity to a statement in which I have the strongest belief, namely, that in these days blockades can never be efficient so long as heavy forts guard the entrances to the harbours blockaded, from which the vessels blockading are obliged to keep at a respectful distance. And perhaps my feeble efforts to demonstrate this will lead some wiser head than mine to suggest a new method of effectually closing an enemy's port." He describes successful runs at Wilmington (on more than one occasion), Nassau and Charleston, and a failed attempt to run the blockade at Savannah. Scarce. Not listed in Nevins, who lists only Hobart- Hampden's SKETCHES FROM MY LIFE. IN TALL COTTON 91. HOWES H549, "aa."

London, Novello, Ewer & Co. [after 1867]. A remarkable survival: a complete run, in the original printed wrappers, of all four series of this popular Victorian collection, ‘long known and appreciated as the only Collection of German Part-Songs in England’ (inside front wrapper). The run totals over 200 four-part songs; composers include Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Schubert, Schumann, and Weber. The publishing programme was originally Ewer’s (c.1835–58). When Novello acquired the business in 1867, and with it the copyright to Mendelssohn’s works, they decided to reissue the series, at a new price: ‘Moderate as the price has hitherto been, the new Proprietors have resolved to place these admired Compositions still further within the reach of all who love Choral Part-Music; and it will in future be issued therefore as 2s. instead of 3s. 6d. a Book’ (ibid.). Of the Novello edition, Library Hub locates copies at Sheffield (Books 1–12) and Bodley (a complete run of 42 books, as here). WorldCat adds those at UCLA (Books 1–21), Illinois (details unknown), Melbourne (Books 1–36), and the Newberry (Books 1–16). 42 vols, oblong 8vo (142 × 198 mm), each comprising four part-books, lettered A–D, and a piano reduction, loose as issued in the original printed wrappers; entirely uncut and unopened; wrappers to vol. 1 dust-soiled, loose and ragged, tear along spine of vol. 2, to vols 3 and 41 missing, to vols 4, 16, 20, 22, 33, 40, and 42 loose, section of lower cover of the final volume torn away, some dust-soiling, rubbing, and tears elsewhere.

728 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA: William Y. McAllister, 1867. Good. Broadside, approximately 10 x 12 inches. Margins apparently trimmed top and bottom edges with no apparent loss. When purchased, this item was in a frame (provided if desired to the purchaser). Folded, creased, short closed tear to the bottom edge. Grey paper printed in black. Willliam Y. McAllister appears in McElroy's Philadelphia directory (1865) at 728 Chestnut Street in Philadelphia. Catalogues from the firm are known from 1865 and 1867 (Romaine) as well as 1872, 1873, 1881, and 1919 (Davis and Dreyfuss). The firm was established in 1783 by John McAllister, Sr. and passed through many incarnations until W.Y. McAllister took over in 1865. Bracegirdle notes that the firm was at 728 Chestnut from circa 1860-1870. A circa 1882 William Y. McAllister catalog notes that McAllister & Bro was the immediate predecessor to the firm (1853-1865) and that W.Y. McAllister was active from 1865 "to date." Since this broadside is undated, we spent some time reviewing the firm's catalogues from different timeframes, attempting to compare woodcuts. The best matches are to the 1867 Optical and Philosophical Instruments catalogue. The Zentmayer Grand American Microscope, the pocket magnifier, nose spectacle, Holmes' Spectroscope, and Revolving Stereoscope in the broadside all match the cuts in that catalogue (complete with woodblock damage).

Walt Whitman
William E. Chapin, 1867. Very Good - book is tight and square with the spine professionally relaid but with earlier endpapers preserved. Corners bumped. See pics. Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman 1867, William E. Chapin, 4th Edition, First Issue This is the fourth Leaves of Grass. The failure of Thayer & Eldridge, publisher of the third edition (Boston, 1860), left Whitman in search of a publisher. The poet decided that the events of the Civil War called for another reimagining of Leaves of Grass. Whitman returned to his earlier practice and financed the publication himself, engaging the New York printer William E. Chapin. For the first time, the 1867 Leaves opened with the poem "Inscription," which introduced the book in subsequent editions. "In various permutations, Whitman circulated this fourth edition as four separately paginated books stitched together between two covers: a vastly re-edited version of the 1860 Leaves, a reissue of Drum-Taps, a reissue of the Sequel to Drum-Taps, and a striking coda called Songs Before Parting. This most chaotic of all six editions of Leaves contains only six new poems ("Inscription" [later "One's-Self I Sing" and "Small the Theme of My Chant"], "The Runner," "Leaves of Grass" number 2 [later "Tears"], "Leaves of Grass" number 3 [later "Aboard at a Ship's Helm"], "When I Read the Book," and "The City Dead-House"), but its significance lies in its intriguing raggedness, which is embedded in the social upheaval in the immediate aftermath of the Civil War" (Mancuso, Walt Whitman: An Encyclopedia).

Daudet Alphonse
1867. 2 pages in-16 (133 x 105 mm) à l'encre noire sur papier vergé avec enveloppe timbrée jointe, sous chemise demi-maroquin noir moderne. Belle lettre autographe d'Alphonse Daudet, signée, adressée à Paul Dalloz [cachet de la poste : Fontvieille, 3 mars 1867]. Elle évoque tout à la fois la publication du «Petit Chose », son premier chef d'oeuvre, alors en cours de parution dans « Le Petit Moniteur Universel » dirigé par le même Dalloz, les « Lettres de mon Moulin » mais aussi son projet d'acheter le fameux moulin. Avant le « Petit Chose », son premier roman, Daudet, monté sans le sou à Paris plus de dix ans auparavant, avait publié notamment quelques pièces, des "lettres sur Paris et lettres du village" dès la fin 1865, dans Le Petit Moniteur Universel, des nouvelles (certaines recueillies en 1869 dans les « Lettres de mon Moulin ») et de la poésie. C'est à Paris, en 1859, qu'il avait rencontré Frédéric Mistral, qui sera, de même que Paul Dalloz, témoin de son mariage avec Julia Allard, rencontrée en 1865 lors de la première représentation d'Henriette Maréchal, des frères Goncourt. Le mariage fut célébré le 29 janvier 1867 ; cette lettre écrite de Fontvieille où le couple était parti en voyage de noces s'adresse tout à la fois à l'éditeur et à l'ami. Le ton est très détendu : « J'aurais voulu, mon cher ami, vous envoyer un brin de myrte, un peu de ciel bleu et quelques étoiles provençales pour vous remercier de votre charmante lettre» / « nous rentrons à Paris dans quinze jours. » / « Ma Parisienne s'est vaillamment comportée ; elle a voulu me suivre en mer par les plus g … [Click Below for Full Description]
