        Holograph Poem, "The Bit o' Garden," Four Stanzas, 24 Lines, with Two Corrections

      - Written in fountain pen by Buchanan on two ruled octavo sheets (in landscape form), his poem, "The Bit o' Garden," with two corrections from what appears to be a last manuscript before submitting poem for publication. The poem appeared in Buchanan's book in 1867, Wayside Posies, published by George Routledge. The poem appears in the book with the complete copy as written out here by Buchanan in holograph form, with both corrections appearing in print. Very good. Scarce.

        Aus früherer Zeit.

      Berlin, Franz Duncker, 1862-1867. - 4 Bde. (8), 394 SS. (4), 387, (1) SS. VI, 468, (2) SS. XII, 622 SS. Bedr. Originalbroschuren. 8vo. Seltene erste Ausgabe von Ruges Autobiographie. - Der deutsche Politiker und Publizist Arnold Ruge (1802-80) wurde als Student der Philologie 1824 wegen burschenschaftlicher Aktivität zu 14 Jahren Festungshaft verurteilt, verbüßte sechs Jahre und nutzte die Haftzeit zum Studium. Nach seiner Entlassung habilitierte er sich über "Die Platonische Ästhetik". Seit 1838 gab er die "Hallischen Jahrbücher für dt. Wiss. und Kunst" heraus, die zum theoretischen Organ der Linkshegelianer wurden; zu den Mitarbeitern zählten u. a. David Friedrich Strauß wie auch Ludwig Feuerbach. 1843 floh Ruge vor der Zensur nach Paris, wo er mit Karl Marx die "Dt.-Frz. Jahrbücher" herausgab. Als bürgerlich-radikaler Demokrat trennte er sich von Marx, als dieser zum Kommunismus überging, und kehrte im Herbst 1846 nach Deutschland zurück. Nach der Niederlage der Revolution floh Ruge nach England und lebte seit 1850 in Brighton. Er war als Sprachlehrer tätig, schrieb Dramen, Romane und Novellen und übersetzte aus dem Englischen. Zuletzt Nationalliberaler, unterstützte er publizistisch Bismarcks Reichseinigungspolitik (vgl. DBE). - "Diese 'Erinnerungen' sind neben seinen 'Briefen' das Lesenswerteste aus Ruges Feder. Sie reichen bis zum Beginn des Jahres 1843 und sind 1861-66 entstanden, was insbesondere bei Beurteilung seiner Ausführungen über die Burschenschaften zu berücksichtigen ist. Doch darf man ihren Quellenwert nicht unterschätzen. Als Gesamtbild jener für die burschenschaftliche Entwicklung entscheidenden Jahre sind sie unübertroffen. Dabei ist die Darstellung flüssig und fesselnd, mit Humor und witzigen Anekdoten gewürzt" (Neher, Ruge als Politiker und politischer Schriftsteller). - Papierbedingt gleichmäßig schwach gebräunt, aber insgesamt sehr sauber. Unbeschnittenes, teils unaufgeschnittenes Exemplar. Goedeke XVIII, 1231. 247. Hirschberg II, 426. Kosch XIII, 539. Killy X, 70 (falsch: "1842 bis 1847").

        O-KEE-PA: A RELIGIOUS CEREMONY; AND OTHER CUSTOMS OF THE MANDANS

      Philadelphia, 1867. Half title. Quarto. Modern half morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Original fly leaf and half title chipped at upper corner (no loss). Text lightly tanned, plates clean. A very good copy. First American edition, using the same sheets and printing as the London edition of the same year, but with a cancel titlepage. Catlin spent some fourteen years among the various North American Indian tribes and left the most authentic anthropological record of an already vanishing people. He wrote O-KEE-PA... in response to an article appearing in an 1866 issue of Truebner's monthly catalogue. The article attributed to Catlin the authorship of an "indescribably lascivious pamphlet" on the secret customs of the Mandans (see Sabin 11528). O- KEE-PA... is as much a defense of Catlin as of the Mandans, a tribe who were mostly found on the west side of the Missouri River, most of whom were destroyed by a smallpox epidemic in 1837. Catlin states in his preface that of all the numerous customs which he had recorded, nothing was so peculiar and surprising as the O-kee-pa ceremony of the Mandans. The curious rite of O-kee-pa is shown in "horrible fidelity" (Field) in the thirteen outstanding color plates. The explicit details of the sexual elements of the ceremony were considered too shocking for the general public and were included in a separately issued three-page "Folium Reservatum," purportedly issued in an edition of approximately twenty- five copies and present here.

        [COLLECTION OF 56 STEREOSCOPIC PHOTOGRAPHIC VIEWS FROM WATKINS' PACIFIC COAST SERIES, PRINCIPALLY DEPICTING SCENES IN YOSEMITE]

      San Francisco, 1867. Very good. In a modern half morocco and cloth box. Carleton Watkins was one of the finest 19th-century landscape photographers. The magnificence of the Yosemite Valley was unknown to settlers until 1849 and it remained so until Watkins brought photographic images of its extraordinary beauty to the public. Watkins' vistas of a serene and underpopulated land demonstrated the ideal harmony between man and nature. "The controlled grandeur of his views of the sublime is encoded not only with classical ideals of simplicity, geometry, and measure but also with a perception of the West as the primordial theatre of an authentically American place" - THE WAKING DREAM. These photographs helped clinch the notion that Yosemite was a relic of Eden in North America. Although Watkins is best known for his mammoth plate photographs, his work was also published as stereoscopic views. In July of 1861, Watkins first traveled to Yosemite equipped with a stereoscopic camera, taking 100 stereoscopic negatives. He returned to Yosemite between 1865 and 1866 which yielded an additional 300 stereoscopic negatives. The present collection includes fifty images of Yosemite (eleven from the first series taken in 1861, and thirty-nine from the second series taken between 1865 and 1866), as well as five images in San Francisco (including three Cliff House views; a July 4, 1864 image of Montgomery Street; and a view from Telegraph Hill), and an additional image of the entrance to the New Almaden, California mine. The collection is from an unusually early period, with the images on Watkins' yellow card mounts with his Montgomery Street address (images printed subsequently would be on orange cards and a different address post-1871). The stereoviews present here were printed between 1867 and 1868, with many including notice of his Paris International Exposition medal on verso. Photographic historian Peter Palmquist has noted: "As a landscape photographer Watkins is best remembered for his pictures of Yosemite. Not only did he achieve many of his artistic successes there, but Yosemite also became more widely known and appreciated because of his eloquence and vision.

        BEAN'S HISTORY AND DIRECTORY OF NEVADA COUNTY, CALIFORNIA. CONTAINING A COMPLETE HISTORY OF THE COUNTY, WITH SKETCHES OF THE VARIOUS TOWNS AND MINING CAMPS

      Nevada, Ca., 1867. Contemporary printed paper boards, calf backstrip, spine gilt; rebacked, with most of the original backstrip laid down. Boards rubbed and soiled, worn at corners and edges. Contemporary bookplate on front pastedown of William Montgomery; printed label on rear pastedown ("John Howell / Importer/ San Francisco") and pencil notes in the hand of Warren Howell. Quite clean and neat internally. A very good copy. The first Nevada County directory, the first history of the county as a whole, and the first book printed in Nevada County. Bean's history and directory is quite scarce and contains a great wealth of early material on this vitally important mining region. Bean, who was Nevada County assessor and editor of the DAILY GAZETTE, provides a complete history of the county, along with sketches of the various towns and mining camps, names and occupations of residents, and statistics on mining and other resources. A substantial essay is given over to mining gold from quartz deposits, which, as the author notes, has been the subject of numerous false starts. Besides the general history of Nevada County, there are also descriptions and directories of Nevada City, Grass Valley, Meadow Lake, Bridgeport, Rough and Ready, Little York, Washington, Bloomfield, and Eureka, as well as descriptions of the mines of Nevada City and Grass Valley, and a number of advertisements for local businesses. "[Bean's] history and directory is, by far, the best-known of all California directories. One of the great 'standard' county histories, it is, in the minds of many collectors, dealers, historians and libraries, one of the most valuable - content wise - of all directories published in the United States. Though very scarce, it is also perhaps the most obtainable of California directories, probably because its worth was recognized from the beginning, resulting in the fact that copies were preserved in quantities greater than those of other directories" - Quebedeaux. "Notable compendium of early source material" - Wheat.

        RARE Archive - Manuscript Letters & Lease Documents Pertaining to the Original Prince of Wales Theatre in Liverpool

      Liverpool, 1867. Liverpool, 1867-1878. Archive of 65 manuscript letters and 3 manuscript lease documents pertaining to the historic and all but forgotten original Prince of Wales Theatre (1862-1912) in Clayton Square, featuring correspondence between celebrated theatre manager Alexander Henderson, owner William Earp, and purchaser John Henry Addison, in which are recorded lease negotiations and purchase agreements, financial arrangements, theatrical performers, and litigation. From the archives of J.H. Brown of Messrs Wright & Brown, attorney for John Henry Addison who purchased the theatre in 1874. Some age-toning to documents, otherwise in excellent condition, a splendid content-rich theatre archive. Little known to some, the very first Liverpool Prince of Wales Theatre (1862-1912), was conceived and first operated by the distinguished Alexander Henderson, and was situated in Clayton Square, and is altogether separate from the theatre on Lime Street. Centering around John Henry Addison and Alexander Henderson, consequential firsthand information on transactions surrounding leasing the premises, a transfer of ownership, and bookings, is abundant in this archive of manuscript correspondence and documents. The lot of correspondence includes 10 signed letters from visionary theatre manager Alexander Henderson, creator of the Prince of Wales Theatre (1862-1912) in Clayton Square, first lessee of the building formerly known as Clayton Hall, and irrefutably one of the most important theatre managers of the nineteenth century, with influence in the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and Australia. Also included is a manuscript copy of Henderson's lease of the Prince of Wales Theatre in Liverpool in 1867. Alexander Henderson (1828-1886) was a leading promoter of theatre and burlesque for some thirty years in the nineteenth century, especially active in West End London. His legacy includes some of the biggest productions in the United Kingdom, America and Australia. The historic and lesser known Prince of Wales Theatre situated in Clayton Square, was first under the management of the lessee Mr. Alexander Henderson, who approached the building's proprietor William Earp in 1862 with his vision and immediately obtained from him a ten year lease with option to purchase. Upon returning from Australia, Henderson was meandering in Liverpool and came upon Clayton Hall in December 1859 which was advertising a musical performance by the Minstrel Troupe, for which he paid his entrance. Looking around the room, he envisioned the space as a more inviting and lovely little theatre. And so, the very next morning he brought a proposal to Mr. Earp and secured the lease presented here. Two days later he sailed for Australia, where he would stay for six months, and during which time the hall became vacant. After making the necessary modifications, Henderson secured famous actors such as Toole, Sothern, and Sir Henry Irving, with performances starting as early as January 1862. Henderson travelled to America with his wife Lydia Thompson and her dance group for six years from 1868 to 1874, bringing in others to manage the theatre in his absence. In the summer of 1874 the theatre was under management of Mr. W. Sidney. In 1876 Mr. Kittle was the lessee. On 9 October 1876 Frank Emery opened the theatre with a burlesque performance "Zampa..." All three latter names appear in this correspondence. In the meantime, in June of 1873 Mr. William Earp sold the theatre to John Henry Addison. By an indenture dated 9 April 1874 Earp released all interest in the theatre to Addison for a sum of £500. Addison and Henderson worked well together, at least for a time it seems. Interestingly, in 1875 Earp filed a lawsuit against Henderson which also implicated Addison. The original lease agreement with Henderson and the purchase agreement with Addison being unrelated to one another, the case ended in favour of the defendant. The theatre was originally a mansion built in 1769, home to Miss Clayton, daughter of Liverpool MP and prominent tobacco merchant William Clayton (ca 1661-1715), which was around the turn of the nineteenth century converted to Clayton Hall which was used at irregular intervals for entertainment, and subsequently into the Prince of Wales theatre. The Prince of Wales Theatre was demolished in 1912. A new theatre of a different kind, the Liverpool Picture House, was built adjacent to the site. (Note - This Prince of Wales Theatre in Clayton Square is not to be confused with the Prince of Wales Theatre and Opera House which opened some four years later, on 15 November 1866, very nearby on Lime Street, and which is today's Empire Theatre) Highlights from the archive include: Manuscript File copy of a ten year lease agreement made on 22 October 1867 between theatre manager Alexander Henderson of Liverpool and proprietor William Earp of Eastbourne, which replaced the first agreement made in 1862. Excerpt from the agreement: ..."The said William Earp agrees to let and the said Alexander Henderson agrees to take the Prince of Wales Theatre situated in Clayton Square Liverpool in the county of Lancaster with all fixtures fittings furniture and scenery therein belonging to the said William Earp... for the term of ten years commencing the first day of January one thousand eight hundred and seventy six at which time the existing lease of the said premises dated the nineteenth day of April one thousand eight hundred and sixty two expires... annual rent rate of one thousand and fifty pounds..." Three (3) letters from John Henry Addison to Henderson written from July to September 1874, concerning the impending law suit between Addison and the theatre's proprietor William Earp, and a falling out between Addison to Henderson. These letters are his own retained copies and further reveal private negotiations, specific performances discussed for the theatre, and also the continued business involvement of Sydney Nelson of Australia. Excerpts from the letters: "When you were in Liverpool before starting for America you said your co. would play an engagement with me in June... September would be best... In the meantime Kate Stanley's troupe wanted to come and I put them off until the date of your arrival...I also have stopped an arrangement for the autumn on the same account... you several times promised to fix a final date... I arranged for my co. to go away for 2 months, no sooner... you have decided to open at Charing Cross... "...In your letters you entirely avoid to reference to breach of engagement with me & this is a very strong point. I do not consider you entitled to the full amount you claim... I will give £250 to close everything between us... Sidney can inform of what the agreements were before he came in..." Ten (10) autograph letters signed by Alexander Henderson, nine being addressed to Addison, dated between 23 April and 10 September 1874 in response to the above, and discussing plans for his performance company. Henderson's letters are written whilst in Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Carlsbad in Western Bohemia in the Czech Republic, and finally London. Excerpt from the letters: "We arrived here [Philadelphia} on Sunday... The performances of my company as done here... work so well together... Sullivan has been doing very badly & has closed up so I hear, until he goes to California." "... you might however send your company over to Dublin to play as the P. of W. party. I used to do it every year when Harry Webb had the Queens Theatre and always made money... nearly £400 every night." "... I wanted most particularly to consult you on business matters... Liverpool engagement for my company... keep the September dates open..." "... up to the time of my leaving London... Kate Stanley's arrangements were not fixed so far as Liverpool was concerned... My arrangement is to play a season at the Charing Cross Theatre of 3 months... you must occupy your time with Stars... I will if you like form a company of the best available material & play El Dorado - and my comedy... There are plenty of good people to carry out such an undertaking... " "... By a letter I've first had from Sothern it seems he himself concluded the arrangements..." "... I sold the lease to you at one sixth its value purely to meet your views, which it seems were to sell it for £3000 as you had a customer for it at that figure... I never said I would take less than £500... Without prejudicing my claim I am willing to take £450 for the debt..." "Dear A.[Addison] There is nothing to arbitrate. You bought my lease... for £500 and I handed it to you. Cancelled, endorsed, in return for your I.O.U.... I want the £500. This is simply business... Two draft agreements issued by Addison for the lease of Prince of Wales Theatre, and his portion of the Clayton Square estate, one being granted to Thomas Kittle and Sefton Henry Parry on 21 September 1874, the other a draft agreement to Mr. Frank Emery in 1877. Fifty (50) signed manuscript letters pertaining to purchase, lease, and insurance of the theatre, as well as the trial and other business matters. Twelve are penned and signed by Liverpool solicitor George R. Robertson, and discuss the lease agreement being made in 1877 between Addison and Frank Emery. Forty-seven letters and one telegram are penned and signed by John Henry Addison, addressed to his lawyer Mr. J.H. Brown, addressing numerous important matters. Excerpt from Addison's letters: "White says he sold theatre to me as it stood so this I think makes me safe." "...I sent you what I call my theatre lease at the time you were examining the Emery business..." "Theatre is now insured by me for £6000.... £1000 furniture scenery &c the latter Emery should pay I think." "... R. & E. are falling out I fancy over other matters & I'd like to get clean of both of them." "Enclosed is receipt for Earp £1000 due 31 July which I have paid..." "Earp has been attacking me fiercely in person..." "Earp writes this morning, 'will you purchase seats, scenery &c as in Mr. Henderson's lease'... I bought everything of course when I bought the theatre. I wasn't buying 4 walls. If you have anything to say or any documents please send them to Hull & Co. Contract says theatre and all appurtenances." "Emery the present lessee of Prince of Wales Theatre has offered me in writing £4000 for a lease of 21 years...10% down..." "Emery was breaking away from his bargain... I took the bull by the horns... He took the bait... told me just what he should not have... Don't drop this letter in the coffee room..." "Mr. Emery will agree to the terms proposed viz. Premium on lease £4000 payable as follows... Balance £10 per week... Emery has just got through a law suit with Kittle... If the payment stops the lease stops..." "Kittle has settled with Sidney about the P. of W. [Prince of Wales Theatre]" "What should I ask for the theatre. It cost me 26 a yard for 500 £13000. Property next to it sells for £30 and not occupied... some way of calculating surrender of leases apart from value of land. I shall be glad to get rid of it." Alexander Henderson (1828-1886) was a leading promoter of theatre and burlesque for some thirty years in the nineteenth century, especially active in West End London. His legacy includes some of the biggest productions in the United Kingdom, America and Australia. He gained his first theatrical experience as secretary to Edward Askew Sothern, and laid the foundations of his fortune in Australia, in dramatic enterprise. There he first tried his hand at theatre management, became acquainted with famous composer Sydney Nelson, and further apprenticed in the business with the Syndey family. In 1864 he was managing the new Theatre Royal in Birkenhead, where he met his second wife, Lydia Thompson. In 1866 he opened and managed the Prince of Wales Theatre in Liverpool, which became noted for unique staging and first class performances, and which is now one of the most important theatres in the North West - the Empire Theatre. Henderson leased and managed several theatres. After establishing the Prince of Wales, he moved on to productions in America in the summer of 1868, and later in London. His successor at the Prince of Wales was Frank Musgrave, musical director for the London Strand Theatre. After a six year production tour in New York, in 1874 Henderson was in London, at the Globe theatre. In 1878 he became owner and manager of the Folly Theatre in London (previously the Charing Cross Theatre). On 18 September 1880 the Strand Theatre re-opened with 'Olivette', a new opera-comique under the management of Alexander Henderson. The Comedy Theatre on Panton Street was built in 1881 for Henderson, from the designs of Thomas Verity, with Renaissance style ornamentation finished in white and gold, the dress circle uniquely entered directly from the street level. It opened with 'La Mascotte' on 15 October. He was also lessee of the Avenue up to the time of his death. At only fifty-seven years of age, Henderson died suddenly at Caen in Normandy on February 1st, 1886, during a millionaire's vacation. Henderson's second wife was Lydia Thompson (1838-1908), born in London, an accomplished dancer and actress in Burlesque, who travelled as far as America, on numerous occasions, with her burlesque group called the "British Blondes". She performed at the Prince of Wales Theatre in its early years. Recently wed, Henderson and Thompson sailed in August 1868 for America, she heading a small theatrical troupe, adapting popular English burlesques for middle-class New York audiences by adding topical and local references into the lyrics. Their performances were the most popular entertainment in New York during the 1868-1869 theatrical season, the planned six-month tour extending into an extremely successful tour of almost six years. Thompson, Henderson and her troupe finally returned to England in 1874, and she resumed her starring roles in London and provincial productions. In 1878 she also performed at the Folly Theatre, of which her husband Alexander Henderson was proprietor and manager. Thompson and Henderson separated, but continued to work together into the 1880s. Following Henderson's death in 1886 Thompson returned to New York for a season, and did so again in the winter seasons of 1888 and 1891. Henderson's first wife, Miss Moon, was associated with Liverpool. Fascinating stories and important historical details pertaining to the Prince of Wales Theatre in Clayton Square are found in a book titled, "Annals of the Liverpool Stage: From the Earliest Period to the Present Time," by R. J. Broadbent, published in 1908. Particulars of the 1875 trial Earp vs Henderson were published inthe 1876 Law Reports: Division 1, Chancery Division High Court of Justice. . Very Good.

He was a pupil of renowned comparative anatomists F. von Leydig, R.A. von Kölliker and K. Gegenbauer, and became professor of Zoology at the University of Würzburg. "Semper devoted the period from December 1858 to May 1865 to the exploration of the Philippines. Nevertheless, it was a period of outstanding achievement, chiefly because Semper [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Sailor's Word-Book:

      London: Blackie and Son,, 1867. An Alphabetical Digest of Nautical Terms, including some more especially Military and Scientific, but Useful to Seamen; as well as Archaisms of Early Voyagers, etc. By the Late … Revised for the Press by Vice-Admiral Sir E. Belcher. Octavo (217 × 148 mm) Slightly later blue half hard-grained morocco, blue linen boards, title gilt to the spine, marbled edges and endpapers. Engraved medallic portrait to the text. A little rubbed, and stained on the boards, light browning, scatter of foxing, overall very good. Bookplate of the Junior Conservative Club to the front pastedown, and device gilt to the tail of the spine. First edition. Craig describes the book as containing "full and learned definitions, but little attempt at etymology or derivation". but remains uncommon, and invaluable reference for all that. Smyth went to sea early in the merchant service "in 1804 was in the East India Company's ship Cornwallis, which took part in the expedition against the Seychelles. In March 1805 the Cornwallis was bought into the navy and established as a 50 gun ship under the command of Captain Charles James Johnston. Smyth remained on board, seeing much active service in Indian, Chinese, and Australian waters" (J.K. Laughton in ODNB). But after a period largely engaged in surveying operations, which he combined with antiquarian research, he retired from the sea and pursued " a literary and scientific life". He occupied high position in the Society of Antiquaries, the Royal Astronomical Society, the Royal Society, the Royal Geographical Society - of which he was one of the founders - and was an "honorary or corresponding member of at least three-quarters of the literary and scientific societies of Europe".

      Yedo [i.e. Tokyo]. 1867-66. "2 parts in 3 volumes, 16mo, pp. [104]; [88]; [107]; illustrated with woodcuts throughout (that of the rainbow hand-colored); original tan wrappers sewn in the Japanese manner, printed paper labels on upper covers; last 40pp. of the first volume heavily annotated over the text and obscuring the same, so this is accompanied by another copy of the first volume in a different wrapper; occasional spots and stains, ink stamps; good copy. The interesting part of the overwriting is that it was written by an officer by the name of Hiroshi Yuchi in the Sino-Japanese War (ca. 1894-95), and as such constitutes a sort of diary, making notes on military strategy, the raining down of bombs and hand-grenades, deaths of comrades, his girl friend, etc. The imprint in vol.

Slightly foxed; first signature slightly split; occasional small tears; impression occasionally weak; publisher's handstamp to lower right corner of title. . First edition. Hopkinson 61A considers this to be the earliest printing. Collector William Crawford, however, identified what he believed to be an earlier issue, distinguished by typographical differences to the title page (Verdi's name in a smaller typeface and the absence of the lithographer's name to the lower right corner) and the absence of the printer's imprint to the foot of the first page of music. "Don Carlos has of late become one of the best-loved and most respected of Verdi?'s operas... Verdi dedicated to the work some of his greatest dramatic music. One need think only of the magnificent series of confrontational duets that form such a great part of the drama... several of these break decisively with traditional models, forging for themselves a vital new relationship between musical and dramatic progress. It is for such moments that Don Carlos will be remembered and treasured." Roger Parker in Grove online

Henriette Louise Marie Tinne, her daughter Alexandrie P.F. Tinne and her sister Adrienne van Capellen. The two elder women, Henriette and Adrienne, died on the journey"(Great Flower Books p. 63)./"From the end of January 1863 until mid-December, the Dutch traveller Alexine Tinne and the German zoologist Theodor von Heuglin carried out an expedition to the vast region of the Gazelle-river, a western tributary of the White Nile also known as the Bahr el-Ghazel (the Arabian name). Their private fortune enabled Alexine and her mother, Harriette Tinne-van Capellen, to prepare and maintain an expedition of immense proportions. No expense was spared. A steamboat was engaged together with transport vessels for the accompanying people, beasts of burden, and provisions, together forming a 'train' of more than 150 people, which after three months had increased to more than 550" (R.J. Willink , The fateful Journey p. 17). The book describes and portrays the plants collected by Alexine and Heuglin, some eighty samples were collected of which many new to science. The text was written by the well-known botanist Theodor Kotschy and J. Peyritsch. The work was financed by John Tinne and dedicated to Queen Sophie of the Netherlands. Only very few copies were published./Recently a book was published by Robert Joost Willink, 'The fateful journey. The expedition of Alexine Tinne and Theodor von Heuglin in Sudan (1863-1864).

        The Rise and Progress of the Kingdoms of Light & Darkness. or, the Reign of Kings Alpha and Abadon

      Philadelphia: J. Nicholas, Printer, 1867. 1st ed. Hardcover. Fair. 2 [of 12 or 13] illustrations, 288p. Original cloth, recently rebacked, with most of original backstrip laid down. 18cm. Cover cloth chipped at corners. Faint, faded gift inscription on blank leaf preceding title-page. Moderate age-toning. Lacks 10 or 11 plates (has only the portrait of the author and one other plate). We are uncertain about the exact number of plates since we found references for 12 plates and for 12 plates plus the portrait. According to the "Sketch of the Life of the Author (pp. 3-18), Blackson, born to free parents in Christiana, Delaware,in 1817, was a devoutly religious Methodist who, disturbed by the discriminatory mistreatment of African Americans, joined the African Union Church. Max Whiteman described the contents of this rare work of allegorical religious fiction thusly: "... Original folklore full of strange biblical characters. The story is brought up to the time of the Civil War. King Alpha is Christ and Abadon is Satan who fight through the centuries until at last Abadon is defeated."

        1867 JULES-EMILE PLANCHON HANDWRITTEN LETTER to DR. V.A. SIGNORET, plus two of J.-E. Planchon's ORIGINAL WORKS on the FRENCH PHYLLOXERA VINEYARD PLAGUE, plus a SIGNED WORK by J.-E. Planchon's brother, GUSTAVE PLANCHON

      Montpellier, France, 1867. 1st Edition . No Binding. Good. 1867 JULES-EMILE PLANCHON HANDWRITTEN LETTER to DR. V.A. SIGNORET, plus two of J.-E. Planchon's ORIGINAL WORKS on the FRENCH PHYLLOXERA VINEYARD PLAGUE, plus a SIGNED WORK by J.-E. Planchon's brother, GUSTAVE PLANCHON. THREE PAGE HANDWRITTEN LETTER by JULES EMILE PLANCHON to DR. VINCENT ANTOINE SIGNORET (addressed to "Monsieur", but clearly to Dr. Vincent Antoine Signoret, identified by the other included items that are described below). The letter is on a single-fold sheet, making 4-pages. Handwritten on the front page and the two inside pages, the back page is blank. Signed by J. E. Planchon at the end of his letter, with his current positions as Professor and Director of Pharmaceuticals in Montpellier, written beneath his signature. AN IMPORTANT LETTER - Written during the time J-E PLANCHON was investigating the cause of the destruction of grape vines throughout Europe. Much of the letter discusses botany, with botanical words such as: Chènes, Coccus, Gramutii, Pulvinatus, Chermes, Cultivés, Coquilles, Èspece, etc. Much of the letter has to do with scale insects, a specialty of the letter's recipient, DR. V.-A. SIGNORET. The letter is dated: Montpellier le 10 Decembre 1867. It appears that the letter was originally sent to GUSTAVE PLANCHON, the brother of JULES EMILE PLANCHON, in response to a booklet written by Gustave Planchon titled: LE KERMES DU CHENE - AUX POINTS DE VUE ZOOLOGIQUE, COMMERCIAL & PHARMACEUTIQUE. But the letter by Signoret to Gustave Planchon was either intercepted by or forwarded to Jules Emile Planchon, who read it and responded to it. THE LETTER IN THIS AUCTION IS THE LETTER BY J.-E. PLANCHON to SIGNORET, it DOES NOT include the assumed letter written by Signoret to Gustave. However... GUSTAVE'S BOOKLET IS INCLUDED. The booklet has printed blue wrappers, sewn binding, 5.25x8.25", 47 pages. Published in PARIS and MONTPELLIER, 1864. The booklet is SIGNED and INSCRIBED by GUSTAVE PLANCHON at the top of the front cover: "hommage de l'auteur / Gustave Planchon (signed)". The booklet has the ink-stamped signature of SIGNORET on the half-title page, again on page 7 (the beginning of the text), and a third time on the blank bottom of the last page (page 47). Handwritten on the front cover, presumably by SIGNORET is "ecrit à M. Planchon le 21 Nbre 1867". This corresponds nicely with the December 10, 1867, date on the letter by E.-J. Planchon to (presumably) Signoret. The booklet also has a handwritten, single-line, relevant note on page 23, presumably by Signoret. ALSO INCLUDED are TWO BOOKLETS on GRAPE VINES and VINEYARDS by J. E. PLANCHON. (1) An 8 page booklet titled "LA PHTHIRIOSE ou PEDICULAIRE DE LA VIGNE CHEZ LES ANCIENS - Et Les Cochenilles de la VIGNE Chez Les Modernes". A separately bound extract from the Societe des Agriculteurs de France, 1870. (2) A 16 page booklet titled "NOTES ENTOMOLOGIQUES SUR LE PHYLLOXERA VASTATRIX". A separately bound extract from the Societe des Agriculteurs de France, 1869. IN SUMMARY, THIS AUCTION IS FOR: (1) A 3-PAGE HANDWRITTEN LETTER BY JULES-EMILE PLANCHON. (2) A 42 PAGE Booklet by GUSTAVE PLANCHON, SIGNED by GUSTAVE PLANCHON, and owned by VINCENT ANTOINE SIGNORET, with his stamped Signature and Handwritten notes. (3) AN 8 PAGE Booklet by JULES EMILE PLANCHON on VINES both Ancient and Modern. (4) A 16 PAGE Booklet by JULES EMILE PLANCHON on PHYLLOXERA, the Plague that was destroying the Vineyards of France and Europe. CONDITION: The letter is solid, there are some stains, spots, creases and edge toning but the writing is clear throughout. The letter has a number of folds from where it was folded, presumably to fit into a small envelope. The booklet by Gustave Planchon has a couple of creases and spots, but remains solid and nice. The 8 page booklet has some creases but remains sturdy, bright and clean. The 16 page booklet is soiled, has edge wear, creases, and tears, has some foxing, and has some early previous owner's margin marks and text underlining.

        Albumen Photograph with Title Philippa

      1867 - Titled, Signed, and Inscribed on the mount by Cameron. The title is "Philippa, " Signed and dated 1867, and inscribed "From Life Registered Photograph copyright." Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) is considered one of the most important female photographers and one of the great portraitists in the history of photography. She came late to photography, not starting until 1863 when she was 48 years old. Because of her close connections in Victorian England she was able to photgraph many of the luminaries of her time, often in costume. This lovely profile photograph of a woman unfortunately is a wreck - damaged and defective, with the top several inches of the photograph and mount torn away. This affects the top of the woman's head but the remainder of the photograph is intact. Despite its condition, this photograph is still of considerable interest as this is the onlh known example of the image to bear a title, "Philippa." Intact portion of image is 10.5 x 11 inches. Mounted on brown stiff paper with browning, evidence of glue on back, and a water stain along bottom and top edges. PHOTO/072915. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Exposition Universelle de 1867, Paris

      Paris: Lemercier, 1867. Faisandier, A.. Four panel, accordion-folding peepshow of the 1867 Exposition Universelle, held on the Champ-de-Mars in Paris. The front-face shows a bird's-eye view of the exposition complex as seen from the north bank of the Seine. Beneath the image, the title is written in five languages, along with the maker information. Three small, circular peep holes cross the center. The cut-out panels inside the peepshow depict the crowded interior of the circular Vestibule and Palace. The visitors, of all shapes and sizes and wearing all manner of dress, wander between the booths in the glass-ceilinged exhibition area. The booths themselves, colored in rich warm tones, represent a range of Eastern cultures, lending the entire spectacle an air of the exotic. The back-scene shows the open garden at the center of the Palace. Curtained entrances ring the green, labeled with the names and flags of the participating nations. These wonderfully detailed crowd scenes offer something new each time the viewer returns to them. The front and back boards are covered in a patterned purple cloth, with a gold border along the edges of the front-face. Some wear to covers, two small segments of gold border missing, and one bumped corner. Otherwise, this rare peepshow is in fine working order.

        THE STORY OF WALDEMAR KRONE'S YOUTH

      Edinburgh: Edmonston and Douglas, 1867. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH n. Hardcover. Probably Done by a Douglas Cockerell Student. 184 x 121 mm (7 1/4 x 4 3/4"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. ATTRACTIVE ARTS AND CRAFTS-STYLE DARK GREEN MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT, each cover with 40 gilt lotus flowers (in five vertical rows of eight), the flowers all flanked by a gilt dot in each of the four corners, raised bands, spine panels with similar floral decoration, gilt titling and turn-ins, all edges gilt. Green spines inevitably sunned to an olive brown, joints and corners a little rubbed, very isolated minor foxing, otherwise fine--clean and fresh internally, and the appealing binding lustrous and without significant wear. This bildungsroman was the first work published by Danish writer Herman Frederik Ewald (1821-1908), who was in his day one of the most widely read authors in Denmark. Originally issued in 1861, it is the story of a rather vain young poet, Waldemar Krone, his rejection of the good provincial girl who loves him, and his ill-fated infatuation with a flighty countess. When the countess throws him over for a French marquis, Krone comes to recognize the worth of Ida, who still loves him. They are happily married, while the unfortunate countess discovers her husband is a fraud before she dies in childbirth. While this and the two works that followed had contemporaneous settings, Ewald later became known for his meticulously researched historical novels. "Waldemar" is a surprisingly uncommon work: OCLC locates just six copies, three in the United States. The binding appears to have been executed by an amateur who could well have been a pupil of Douglas Cockerell, as a pencilled note on the front flyleaf of volume I asserts. The stamped titling on the spines is too uneven to have been Cockerell's own work, though the intricate floral tooling on the boards is well done; in any case, the lotus flower stamp used on these covers seems identical with the tooling used for item #282 in Maggs Catalogue 1212, a book bound by Cockerell ca. 1902. Cockerell (1870-1945) was generally considered to be the leading and most respected binder of his day, and through his work, his teaching, and his publications, he probably exerted "more influence on bookbinding practice and design than any one man has had before." (DNB) An apprentice for Cobden-Sanderson when the latter began his Doves Bindery in 1894, Cockerell set up his own workshop in 1897. During these early years, he was appointed teacher of bookbinding at the London County Council Central School of Arts & Crafts, where he taught Francis Sangorski and George Sutcliffe.

        The Textile Manufactures and the Costumes of the People of India Prepared under the Authority of the Secretary of State for India in Council

      London: India Museum, 1867. First edition, folio, xxi, [1], 173, [1]pp., ex-library, 9 hand-coloured albumen prints, 3 lithographed plates (one chromolithographed) showing examples of carpets, head ware and clothing, plates lightly foxed, blind-stamp on the title, contents leaf and all the plates, small oval damp-stain to upper blank margin of plates, recent buckram, library call number at foot of spine. John Forbes Watson (1827?-1892), reporter for the Products of India at the India Office, London included explanatory text and illustrations of how the fabrics were worn as clothing in India. The textile samples were intended to inspire students and textile manufacturers in Britain and also to alert them to the opportunities of the vast Indian market. Forbes Watson often included notes on cost, who might wear the complete piece and how. Gernsheim, 348.
