        Circulars, Etc. Issued by the Commissioner of the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands, from the Organization of Said Bureau to December 31, 1867, with Copies of Acts and Joint Resolutions of Congress and Proclamation by the President, Relating to Refugees and Freedmen and Said Bureau. Includes: General Order No. 1 (The Emancipation Proclamation), General Order No. 50 (The Civil Rights Act of 1866), and General Order No. 91 with Circulars 13 & 15 (Forty Acres and a Mule)

      Washington DC: Various, 1867. Half Leather. Very good. 12mo (5" x 7.5"). This official sammelband (collection of separately printed works that have been bound together) contains over 120 different documents, most originally 5" x 8" but trimmed to uniform size. Most of the documents are Circulars published by the Bureau over the printed signature of Major General O. O. Howard, its Commissioner, however there are also a number of other higher-level War Department General Orders promulgating official acts, laws, and a proclamation. A 28-page index is included in the back of the book. Paper, type, page numbering and issuing agencies of each included document vary. Sound binding; the front hinge is just starting to crack. The documents are in nice shape, clean with almost no wear. The cover has some minor wear and rubbing; the gilt spine title remains legible. There is a diagonal fold to the top corner of the front free endpaper and fly-leaf. This important collection of documents was issued by the Freedmen's Bureau (a component of the War Department established to aid former slaves), probably as a ready reference for use in its offices throughout the South during Reconstruction following the American Civil War. Most of the documents are quite mundane and address routine administrative concerns, however as a whole, they provide considerable insight about the Bureau's mission and the magnitude of its problems. Several documents in the volume are of special significance including: General Orders No. 1, dated January 2, 1863 - "By the President of the United States of America. A Proclamation." (The Emancipation Proclamation); General Orders 91, dated May 12, 1865, which established the Bureau and contained the famous (or infamous, depending upon your view) Section 4 which authorized the Bureau to rent up to "forty acres" of "land within the insurrectionary States . . . [that had been] abandoned, or . . . acquired . . . by confiscation" to former male slaves; and General Orders No. 50, dated July 21, 1866 - the Civil Rights Act of 1866 (the precursor of the 16th Amendment) and afforded "equal protection" under the law to former slaves. Interestingly, the original Circular 13, dated July 28, 1865 is not included; in its place is a Circular issued later, but post-dated to read July 28, 1865, that simply reads, "Will not be published." In the original Circular 13, Howard instructed Bureau agents and Army officers to give priority to the Congressional mandate of land distribution over President Johnson's declaration of amnesty for white southerners specifically noting, "The pardon of the President will not be understood to extend to the surrender of abandoned or confiscated property which by law has been 'set apart for Refugees and Freedmen." Johnson immediately countermanded the circular and personally wrote a revised version with far stricter criteria which had the effect of drastically reducing the amount of land available for redistribution and in many places stopped land redistribution completely. Very scarce. As of 2016, no examples appear in the trade (although one excised copy of the Emancipation Proclamation is listed) and there are no auction records showing at ABPC or the Rare Book Hub. OCLC shows copies of the volume held by 14 institutions.

Knowing Napoleon III's interest in its feasibility, and encouraged by the finance interest attracted by Suez, he sought support from financiers and government to obtain a concession. In the process, he helped secure a temporary peace between Costa Rica and Nicaragua, but his project ultimately failed (Source: Thomas Schoonover (2000) "The French in Central America"; and Cyril Allen (1957) "Felix Belly: Nicaraguan Canal Promoter"). CONDITION: The covers to both volumes are near-fine with rubbing to the leather on the spine bands and extremities. The gilt remains bright. The bindings are secure.

She married the Marquess of Lorne [later Duke of Argyll] in 1871.Printing and the Mind of Man 358.First edition of the classic account of the unwritten constitution. Bagehot gets rid of all the formal history of 'checks and balances', and shows where the centre of power really is; and why the House of Commons is so much more powerful than other representative assemblies. A brilliant writer, he was completely independent in the formation and expression of his views. Translated into many languages, this work has become one of the most important texts in political literature.

        Maquette pour la Grande Duchesse de Gérolstein".

      - Aquarelle, gouache, mine de plomb et photographies réalisées par Henri FOST et Jenny CARRE, sous couverture demi-basane à coins marron, in-4, dos à cinq nerfs. La Grande-Duchesse de Gérolstein est un opéra-bouffe en 3 actes et 4 tableaux de Jacques Offenbach, sur un livret d'Henri Meilhac et Ludovic Halévy. La première eut lieu le 12 avril 1867 au théâtre des Variétés à Paris pendant l'Exposition universelle. Jenny CARRE (1902-1945), est créatrice de costume de théâtre pour le Châtelet, La Gaîté Lyrique, Les Folies Bèrgères, Le Théâtre des Variétés . Proche de MINSTINGUETT (Jeanne Bourgeois), elle travaille à des revues musicales et des décors de films, dont celui de "Rigolboche". Elle est collaboratrice d'Henri R. FOST pour certaines pièces et dessins. Son style, aux mouvements souples et ronds, est proche de l'Art Déco. Henri R. FOST (1905-1970), réalise des costumes et des décors de théâtre, notamment deux de l'opérette du "Chanteur de Mexico", ainsi que des figures féminines avec accessoires de mode. Son style souple, synthétique, un peu enfantin, son crayon vif, ses couleurs nettes, ses formes rondes, en font un illustrateur prolixe et charmant. Les deux artistes collaborent pour la réalisation des costumes et des décors de la pièce d'OFFENBACH à la fin des années 1860. L'ouvrage présente cinq décors de théatre aquarrellés et gouachés accompagnés d'un rideau amovible, une série de trois plaches de costumes aquarellés et gouachés ainsi que onze pages de photographies de la pièce jouée. Usures à la couverture, dos et pièce de titre en partie déchirés, usures aux plats, au dos, aux coins et aux coiffes. Oeuvre originale

        [MANUSCRIPT CATTLE BRAND REGISTRATIONS FROM BAJA CALIFORNIA]

      [Baja California], 1867. 60 leaves. Stitched folio and quarto manuscript leaves. Some edges chipped and worn, with minor text loss. Light dampstaining and foxing. Good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A collection of fifty three manuscript registrations of cattle brand designs for ranches in the Frontera Norte region of Baja California, south of the United States.

This manuscript brand book predates any printed brand books in the American West, and strikingly demonstrates the importance of the branding system to Western ranching in the mid-19th century.

        HISTOIRE DES BAROMETRES ET MANOMETRES ANEROIDES - BIOGRAPHIE DE LUCIEN VIDIE, INVENTEUR DU BAROMETRE ET DU MANOMETRE ANEROIDES Signed copy

      Paris E. Dentu, 1867.. FIRST EDITION 1867, INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR. French text, 8vo, approximately 255 x 165 mm, 10 x 6½ inches, mounted photograph of Vidie as frontispiece, a few text illustrations, 408 pages plus 1 (Contents table), bound in contemporary half morocco, marbled sides, gilt dividing lines, raised bands with gilt rules and gilt lettering to spine, gilt top edges, marbled endpapers, silk marker. Very slight rubbing to 3 raised bands, upper corners slightly worn, frontispiece expertly reinserted on a tab, offsetting on title page, occasional slight pale foxing including on title page. Binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a scarce book. Born in Nantes (France), Lucien Vidie (1805-1866) began his career as a lawyer but soon turned to engineering, particularly the design of steam engines. The study of manometers awakened his interest in barometers. In c. 1844, he built and patented an efficient aneroid barometer. The instrument, however, did not meet with immediate success in France so he turned to the English market, where he was more fortunate. Auguste Laurant the author has inscribed the half-title: "Offert a M. Emil Gautier. Aug. Laurant 17 D. 67". MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST.

        The Smallest Boat that ever crossed the Atlantic Ocean!

      New York: Ingersoll's Great American Boat and Oar Bazaar, c., 1867. Small defect in blank margin, short tears at old folds.. Broadside, lithographed on fine paper, 28 x 21cms;. Rare and fragile broadside celebrating an amazing short-handed crossing of the Atlantic. Captain Hudson accompanied only by his friend Fitch and his dog Fanny crossed the Atlantic in just 35 days in a steel-hulled 28-foot boat built as a miniature fully-rigged ship, just three feet wide. The epic crossing was long discounted as an exaggerated advertising stunt for Ingersoll's boat-selling business but recent research has proved Hudson's amazing claim and it has been rehabilitated as one of the epic early short-handed voyages.The Red White and Blue sailed first to Margate and then crossed the channel and entered the Seine, becoming as this charming poster proclaims, 'the first full rigged ship that ever entered Paris from a foreign port; upon her entry into Paris, Capt. Hudson received a letter from the emperor Napoleon, appointing an interview, whereupon the Red White and Blue was accorded an honorary place in the grand Exposition'.

        The Adventures of Sir Paladin

      A gory monster epic with exceptional, and graphic, artwork deemed to shocking for children at the time! Oblong, 24 by 33.5 cm. Unpaginated, 48 pp. With mounted artwork on 23 of those pages, 22 of which are pen and ink work, and one, a watercolor. We know the author and artist of this manuscript children's tale from notes written in the front, which we accept as true. There it is also stated that Thayer Smith was the godfather to the Hills Family of High Head Castle, Cumberland, in England -- the castle was destroyed by fire in the 1950s. One of the children for whom this story was prepared, John Waller Hills (1867-1938) was a British Liberal MP from 1906 until his death and was due to be conferred a baronetcy but died prior.

        Autograph letter signed "J. Belval" to unidentified correspondent

      - 3 pp. of a bifolium. 12mo. Dated Neuilly, Sunday, March 3 [1867?]. In black ink on personal stationery with embossed monogram printed in green at head. In French (with translation).An interesting letter in which Belval mentions no fewer than three important composers (Giuseppe Verdi, Félicien David, Hector Berlioz), three singers associated with the Paris Opéra (Louis-Henri Obin, Armand Castelmary, and Pauline Guéymard-Lauters), and the premiere of a new Verdi opera. Because Belval had the flu, he was unable to sing Bertram in a recent performance of Meyerbeer's Robert le Diable; Castelmary, a bass "of the third rank," had to replace him. Belval will sing Meyerbeer's Les Huguenots the following day. He has also asked Guéymard-Lauters to secure two seats for his correspondent for the first performance of Verdi's opera, because he has heard, via Obin, that the composer does not want a public dress rehearsal. Finally, he wishes to enlist the expertise of David and Berlioz regarding some musical matter."My friend Obin told me in effect that Verdi did not wish to hear talk of a dress rehearsal before the public, even a chosen one. But it has been twelve years that I have heard the same alarms with regard to every new opera. Therefore do not despair yet. I have asked Madame Gueymard to get herself signed up for two numbered seats at the theatre for the first performance. They are intended for you, in case the public is not admitted to the dress rehearsal. In principal, the choice of two composers as experts would only reassure me by half, if I had not myself influenced Mr. Félicien David to decide to accept the task, and if in time Mr. Berlioz, to whom I recounted the affair, did not agree with me. Obin went to speak to them both; he could enlighten them much better than I about the disproportion of the two roles. "Slightly worn; creased at folds. Belval, a French bass, "studied at the Paris Conservatoire and made his début in 1846 at Antwerp. After singing in Toulouse, Lyons, the Hague, Ghent and Brussels, he was engaged at the Paris Opéra, making his début in 1855 as Marcel in Les Huguenots. His roles included Bertram (Robert le diable), Balthazar (La favorite), Walter Furst (Guillaume Tell) and Zaccharie (Le prophéte). He took part in many premiéres and created Gargantua in Labarre';s Pantagruel (1855), the Count of Poitou in Halévy';s La magicienne (1858), Soloman in Gounod';s La reine de Saba (1862), Archbishop Turpin in Mermet';s Roland à Roncevaux (1864), Don Pédro in L';Africaine (1865) and King Claudius in Thomas'; Hamlet (1868). he made his last appearance at the Opéra in 1875 as Cardinal Brogni in La Juive, at the public inauguration of the Palais Garnier. His voice was a deep bass, ample in size and dark in tone." Elizabeth Forbes in Grove online.The Verdi opera to which Belval refers is probably Don Carlos, which premiered at the Paris Opéra on March 11, 1867. Louis-Henri Obin, Pauline Guéymard-Lauters, and Armand Castelmary created, respectively, the roles of Philip II, Eboli, and the monk (Charles V) for the first performance.

        HISTOIRE DES BAROMETRES ET MANOMETRES ANEROIDES - BIOGRAPHIE DE LUCIEN VIDIE, INVENTEUR DU BAROMETRE ET DU MANOMETRE ANEROIDES. Signed copy.

      Paris E. Dentu, 1867.FIRST EDITION 1867, INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR. French text, 8vo, approximately 255 x 165 mm, 10 x 6½ inches, mounted photograph of Vidie as frontispiece, a few text illustrations, 408 pages plus 1 (Contents table), bound in contemporary half morocco, marbled sides, gilt dividing lines, raised bands with gilt rules and gilt lettering to spine, gilt top edges, marbled endpapers, silk marker. Very slight rubbing to 3 raised bands, upper corners slightly worn, frontispiece expertly reinserted on a tab, offsetting on title page, occasional slight pale foxing including on title page. Binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a scarce book. Born in Nantes (France), Lucien Vidie (1805 - 1866) began his career as a lawyer but soon turned to engineering, particularly the design of steam engines. The study of manometers awakened his interest in barometers. In c. 1844, he built and patented an efficient aneroid barometer. The instrument, however, did not meet with immediate success in France so he turned to the English market, where he was more fortunate. Auguste Laurant the author has inscribed the half - title: "Offert a M. Emil Gautier. Aug. Laurant 17 D. 67". MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST.

Leichte Gbrsp. - Stifter (1805-1868), geboren als Sohn einer armen Leinweberfamilie im Böhmerwald, kam er noch nicht vierzehnjährig an das Gymnasium des Benediktinerstiftes in Kremsmünster. 1826 begann er in Wien Jura zu studieren. Er besuchte Vorlesungen über Mathematik, Naturwissenschaften und Kunstgeschichte. Erste Gedichte veröffentlichte Stifter unter einem Pseudonym und widmete sich der Malerei. Noch zu Lebzeiten wurde Stifter als Dichter bekannt. Dieser Ruf verdeckt bis heute seine bildungspolitische Bedeutung. Er sah in der allmählichen Hebung des Bildungsstandes des Volkes die einzige Möglichkeit, die sozialen Verhältnisse grundlegend zu ändern. 1850 schlug er die Beamtenlaufbahn ein und wurde Inspektor der oberösterreichischen Volksschulen und 1855 Schulrat. Bereits 1847 bemühte sich Stifter an der Universität Wien öffentliche Vorträge \"Über das Schöne\" halten zu dürfen, die auch für Frauen zugänglich sein sollten.

        Reminiscences of an Old [New] Yorker

      New York: W. L. Andrews, 1867. First. hardcover. near fine. Many plates. 102pp. 4to, handsomely bound in 19th century 3/4 brown morocco. New York: W. L. Andrews, 1867. First Edition. Near Fine. Scarce. One of only 35 copies printed. The remainder of 34 copies were presumably not illustrated and were bound in cloth. This unique copy has been carefully extra-illustrated, and re-bound in contemporary leather. A holograph note on the title page reads "Illustrated by Henry J. Camman, 1875". Most of the mounted illustrations are portraits of American Revolutionary figures, or of New Yorkers. Included are many views of New York architecture, a map of Revolutionary New York & environs in 1778 and a few views of Dutch New York. William Duer was a prominent lawyer who later became judge, as well as president of Columbia College. Bound in are two letters from Morgan Dix, rector of Trinity Church. A newspaper article is affixed to a blank page. William Loring Andrews published books distinctive for their taste in type, illustrations & binding, usually in very limited editions, which were widely collected.

        [Nonce Volume of Eighteen Pamphlets and Extracts about Alexis de Tocqueville and His Works]

      Paris, New York, etc., 1867. Bound together in one volume, large octavo, full 19th century dark green morocco, gilt extra, t.e.g., for and bottom edge untrimmed. Bound for Comte Christian de Tocqueville (1862-1924), with his gilt arms on each board and his bookplate. Occasional foxing and dusting, but an excellent gathering, in a handsome binding. An interesting and varied collection of works about Alexis de Tocqueville, assembled by and bound for his nephew, and editor of some of his uncle's posthumously published works. Among the principal items present are: a) Cassou, Charles: TOCQUEVILLE (ALEXIS DE) [wrapper title]. [Np: Imprimerie de Madame de Lacombe, [ca. 1842]. 47,[1]pp; b) Gigot, Albert: M. DE TOCQUEVILLE. Paris: Charles Douniol, 1861. 39,[1]pp. Original front wrapper bound in; c) Lacordaire, [Jean- Baptiste Henri]: DISCOURS PRONONCÉS DANS LA SÉANCE PUBLIQUE TENUE PAR L'ACADÉMIE FRANCAISE ...LE 24 JANVIER 1861. Paris: Firmin Didot, 1861. 54pp; d) de Kergorlay, Louis: ÉTUDE LITTÉRAIRE SUR ALEXIS DE TOCQUEVILLE. Paris: Charles Douniol, 1861. 19,[1]pp. Printed wrappers. Inscribed by the author in the upper margin of the title-page to the subject's widow, Madam Alexis de Tocqueville; e) Tocqueville, A. de: LETTRE SUR LES DERNIERS MOMENTS ... ADRESSÉE PAR M. LE VICOMTE DE TOCQUEVILLE, SON FRÈRE ... [Np. nd]. [4]pp.; f) Mignet, Francois: NOTICE HISTORIQUE SUR LA VIE ET LES TRAVAUX DE ALEXIS DE TOCQUEVILLE ... Paris: Firmin Didot, 1866. 31,[1]pp.; g) Savary, Charles: ALEXIS DE TOCQUEVILLE SA VIE ET SES OUVRAGES DISCOURS .... Paris: Gustave Retaux, 1867. 40pp. Other items include extracts of signed and unsigned reviews of Tocqueville's works (including their translations into English) from various sources, memorials, etc. Kergorlay's work is of special significance, both for the excellent association value of this particular copy, and for its relevance as a memoir by Tocqueville's cousin and one of his oldest and closest friends. Lacordaire's DISCOURS ... is also of particular note, as it marked the occasion of his taking the seat in the Académie Francaise left vacant by de Tocqueville's death. It is in large part a tribute to his predecessor, and includes the text of the formal response by Guizot.
