        Swinhoe's Deer

      A very detailed hand-colored natural history lithograph by Joseph Wolf (German-English, 1820-1899) from his book "Zoological Sketches", which was compiled for the Zoological Society of London and printed in London: by Henry Graves & Company in 1867. Overall this print measures 13 ?" x 19", the lithograph is tipped into the larger paper which includes a boarder and lettering.Sir Edwin Landseer described Joseph Wolf as ?...without exception the best all-round animal painter who ever lived.? Born and educated in Prussia, Wolf moved to London in 1848 to pursue a growing number of commissions to illustrate natural history works. He quickly became the foremost animal illustrator in Britain. Among his achievements were the illustrations he produced for Gould?s ?The Birds of Great Britain?(1862-1873) and the romantic subjects he drew for ?The Life and Habits of Wild Animals? (1873). Wolf did not wish to be categorized as a scientific illustrator, preferring to create complete and naturalistic compositions, which conveyed a sense of drama and mystery. Rather than show his subjects isolated from their environment, Wolf integrated them into a natural setting and portrayed them involved in dramatic action.In 1852, the British Zoological Society commissioned Wolf to complete several watercolors for its Zoological Sketches published in parts between 1856 and 1867. P.L. Sclater, the secretary of the society, noted in the publication?s preface, ?the Council was fortunate enough to secure the services of Mr Joseph Wolf, who may be fairly said to stand alone in intimate knowledge of the habits and forms of Mammals and Birds.? By this stage in his career, Wolf?s works were in considerable demand both in their own right and as illustrations to books and journals. ?From 1859 to 1869 Wolf was the regular artist for Ibis, the journal of the Zoological Society, and his work was also reproduced in the Illustrated London News, Once a Week, The Leisure Hour, The Sunday at Home, and The Graphic. Unfortunately, during the 1870s, Wolf was increasingly hindered by the onset of chronic rheumatism, which gradually curtailed his work, but he lived on into his eightieth year and died in London surrounded by his pet birds and held in high popular esteem. ?More than three-quarters of a century later his plates are regarded as among the finest productions of the great period of the illustrated book, while his oil paintings, watercolors and drawings are prized by museums and collectors alike.Overall this print is in good condition with some foxing and staining throughout.

        Cedrus Deodara, A Grove at Nachar near the Waterfall, from a drawing by the late Lady Canning (Himalayan Cedar)

      Edinburgh & London 1867 - Hand-coloured lithograph. Sheet size: 21 1/2 x 15 3/4 inches. A very fine plate from Ravenscroft's 'The Pinetum Britannicum. A Descriptive Account of Hardy Coniferous Trees' Ravenscroft's work is the third (in order of publication) of the three great coniferous iconographies of the nineteenth century, following Bedford and Lambert. The very fine plates fall into two categories: botanical studies of details of the needles and fruit of the individual trees, and landscape studies of examples of individual trees in their natural habitat. This plate is an outstanding example of the latter group, here drawn from a drawing by William Richardson and lithographed by F. Schenck. Cf. Nissen BBI 1588; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.127; cf.

      - Thanking him for the gift of Some Account of the Life and Opinions of a Fifth-Monarchy-Man (London, Longmans, Green etc. 1867). Teh Fifth Monarchists were a group of Christians at the time of the English Civil War and Commonwealth who held the belief that a Fifth Monarchy or Empire would arise following those of Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome, founding their idea on the dream of Nebuchandessar in Daniel II of the Old Testament.'I received your Fifth-Monarchy-Man and have gone over that curious record of his earthly Pilgrimage, enveloped (as all men's is) in strange clouds and hallucinations! He is not discreditable to you as an ancestor. . what I most admired in that "Interview" and throughout, was the almost incredible patience of O[liver] C[romwell] Protector (and Governor) of England with him and the like of him, in those perilous conditions of the Commonwealth. The book will be an ornament to my small Puritan collection .'

"The Great Sea Horse" is very reminiscent of Charles Kingsley's children's novel "The Water-Babies, A Fairy Tale for a Land Baby," and its superb color plates by illustrator John Elliott remind one of Jessie Willcox Smith's "Water-Babies" illustrations -- Anderson notes in her preface "the fantastic water fairies with real shells, curious fish, and birds of the ocean...." This unique copy came from the personal collection of famed Boston bookseller Charles E. Goodspeed (1867-1950). Goodspeed had a second home in Boca Grande, Florida, and gave a small number of books (including this one) to the local library there, the Johann Fust Community Library whose bookplate appears on the front pastedown. Better yet, this copy was the personal copy of author Isabel Weld Perkins Anderson (1867-1948), the Boston heiress and author, wife of noted diplomat Larz Anderson (1866-1937). Her estate in Brookline, Massachusetts, was a castle known as Weld Estate, and was horticulturally significant because of its lush extensive gardens (now the Larz Anderson Park). Her "Library of Isabel and Larz Anderson" Weld bookplate graves the front pastedown, and a small typed note on the front flyleaf (likely placed there by Goodspeed) notes, "This copy belongs on Globe Table in Living Room at Weld House Brookline." A choice association copy, being the author's personal copy of her own book, thence to the private collection of Boston's most famous bibliopole. Accompanied by two booklets: First, a lovely third printing of the scarce booklet, "Bibliography of the Works of ISABEL ANDERSON LL.D., Litt.D. (Mrs. Larz Anderson)," a 16mo 12pp leaflet in dust jacket published in 1935 by C.A.A. Parker of Medford, Massachusetts. Near fine in very good jacket. And secondly, "A Biographical Sketch of LARZ ANDERSON (New York: James T. White & Co., 1914), a 16mo 4pp booklet in stiff brown wrappers. Near fine. both of these are also Charles Goodspeed's copies, with the bookplate of the Johann Fust Community Library of Boca Grande, Florida on inside front wrapper.

        Report of the Commissioner of the General Land Office for the Year 1866, with map of the United States and Territories

      Washington, G.P.O, 1867-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. Octavo. 43p, tables, folding map. Bound in publishers green cloth. Gilt lettering on front cover. Minimal shelfwear. Owners name of A.W. Hoyt on inside board. Faint foxing to inside boards and prelims. Clean, unmarked pages. Map is 54.5 in x 28.25 in. with contemporary hand-colored outling to boarding. 2 small tears at the left margin of map, where the map is pasted to the inside board. 2 small holes at corners. The General Land Office (GLO) was an independent agency of the United States government responsible for public domain lands in the United States. It was created in 1812 to take over functions previously conducted by the United States Department of the Treasury. In 1849, it was placed in the Department of the Interior, and later merged with the United States Grazing Service to become the Bureau of Land Management on July 16, 1946. The GLO oversaw the surveying, platting and sale of the public lands in the Western United States and administered the Homestead Act and the Preemption Act in disposal of public lands. The frantic pace of Public Land sales in the 19th century American west led to the idiomatic expression "Land Office business", meaning a thriving or high-volume trade. The year of 1866 was the first year of The Southern Homestead Act. It is a United States federal law enacted to break a cycle of debt during the Reconstruction following the American Civil War. Prior to this act, blacks and whites alike were having trouble buying land. Sharecropping and tenant farming had become ways of life. This act attempted to solve this by selling land at low prices so that southerners could buy it. Many people, however, could still not participate because the low prices were still too high. The Southern Homestead Act opened up 46,398,544.87 acres (about 46 million acres or 190,000 km²) of public land for sale in the Southern states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi. The land was initially in parcels of 80-acre (0.32 km2) (half-quarter section) until June 1868, and thereafter parcels of 160-acre (0.65 km2) (quarter section), and homesteaders were required to occupy and improve the land for five years before acquiring full ownership. Ultimately, before too much land was distributed, the law was repealed in June 1876. Nevertheless, free Blacks entered about 6,500 claims to homesteads, and about 1,000 of these eventually resulted in property certificates. The map accompanying shows the surveyed land in the states effected along with Midwestern states and the Pacific. Also shown were the known mineral deposits in America at the time, which led to the upcoming Indian Wars of the 1870s.

        Cedrus Deodara, at Nachar from a drawing by the late Lady Canning (Himalyan Cedar)

      Edinburgh & London, 1867. Hand-coloured lithograph. Sheet size: 21 1/2 x 15 3/4 inches. A very fine plate from Ravenscroft's 'The Pinetum Britannicum. A Descriptive Account of Hardy Coniferous Trees' Ravenscroft's work is the third (in order of publication) of the three great coniferous iconographies of the nineteenth century, following Bedford and Lambert. The very fine plates fall into two categories: botanical studies of details of the needles and fruit of the individual trees, and landscape studies of examples of individual trees in their natural habitat. This plate is an outstanding example of the latter group, here drawn from a drawing by William Richardson and lithographed by F. Schenck. Cf. Nissen BBI 1588; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.127; cf. Stafleu & Cowan 8685.

        Das Kapital

      Hamburg: Otto Meissner, , 1867. Kritik der politischen Oekonomie. Erster Band. Buch I: Der Produktionsprocess des Kapitals. Octavo (212 × 133 mm). Contemporary German binding for the office of the Oberbergamt of Halle of marbled paper boards, paper spine label lettered gilt and two library shelf labels to the spine. Stamp of the K. Oberbergamts Library, Halle to the title page, shelf mark in ink to the front free endpaper. Joints professionally restored, board extremities and corners worn, internally a very clean copy. Rare first edition of the first volume of Das Kapital, the only one to appear in Marx's lifetime; one of 1,000 copies printed. Two further volumes were published from his manuscripts by Engels, in 1885 and 1894 respectively. The first volume of Das Kapital was published on 14 September 1867 in Hamburg, issued in printed wrappers. "Marx himself modestly described Das Kapital as a continuation of his Zur Kritik de politischen Oekonomie, 1859. It was in fact the summation of his quarter of a century's economic studies, mostly in the Reading Room of the British Museum. The Athenaeum reviewer of the first English translation (1887) later wrote: 'Under the guise of a critical analysis of capital, Karl Marx's work is principally a polemic against capitalists and the capitalist mode of production, and it is this polemical tone which is its chief charm'. The historical-polemical passages, with their formidable documentation from British official sources, have remained memorable; and, as Marx (a chronic furunculosis victim) wrote to Engels while the volume was still in the press, 'I hope the bourgeoisie will remember my carbuncles all the rest of their lives' ..." "By an odd quirk of history the first foreign translation of Das Kapital to appear was the Russian, which Petersburgers found in their bookshops early in April 1872. Giving his imprimatur, the censor, one Skuratov, had written 'few people in Russia will read it, and still fewer will understand it'. He was wrong: the edition sold out quickly; and in 1880 Marx was writing to his friend F. A. Sorge that 'our success is still greater in Russia, where Kapital is read and appreciated more than anywhere else'" (PMM). "The history of the twentieth century is Marx's legacy. Stalin, Mao, Che, Castro?"the icons and monsters of the modern age have all presented themselves as his heirs. Whether he would recognise them as such is quite another matter ... Nevertheless, within one hundred years of his death half the world's population was ruled by governments that professed Marxism to be their guiding faith. His ideas have transformed the study of economics, history, geography, sociology and literature. Not since Jesus Christ has an obscure pauper inspired such global devotion?"or been so calamitously misinterpreted" (Francis Wheen, in his introduction to Karl Marx, 1999).
