        Leaves of Grass (Rare and Desirable 1867 4th Edition, 1st Issue)

      Wm. E. Chapin & Co. 4th Edition, with all four known parts bound in: Leaves of Grass Drum-Taps Sequel to Drum-Taps Songs Before Parting Presumably 1st issue of the 4th Edition, which includes all supplements. Drum-Taps and Songs Before Parting are noted in the primary Table of Contents and appear after Leaves of Grass in the text with their own title pages, contents pages and pagination. Sequel to Drum-Taps is not noted in the primary Table of Contents but appears between Drum-Taps and Songs Before Parting, also with its own title page, Table of Contents, and pagination. The book is bound in leather and cloth covered boards (likely a variant binding - this issue is also known to have appeared in half leather with marbled boards, though no priority established.) Gilt spine lettering present and complete. Original publisher's price of $3.00 twice written in pencil on preliminary page corners. This was the first edition of Leaves of Grass to appear after the American Civil War. It includes Whitman's war and Lincoln inspired verse for the first time. Some of Whitman's most famous poems (including "O Captain, My Captain", among others) made their first appearances in the supplemental works included in this edition. In later editions, these poems would be woven into the main body of Leaves of Grass. Not all issues of the 4th edition include Drum-Taps, Sequel to Drum Taps and Songs Before Parting. Later issues of the fourth edition lack some or all of the supplements. A valuable essay by Ed Folsom titled, "Whitman Making Books/Books Making Whitman," explains: "The first postbellum edition of Leaves of Grass is probably the least studied of the various Whitman editions and the most difficult to find. In terms of what the edition has to teach us, it is an important one indeed, as Whitman here has begun to reformulate Leaves of Grass for a newly reconstructed United States of America, a nation now tempered and sobered by a bloody internal war that would forever haunt its history and undermine the optimistic predictions of America's future. In the first copies of the 1867 edition, Whitman performed his own textual version of healing surgery, suturing the leftover and still-unbound pages of Drum-Taps and Sequel to Drum-Taps into the back of his new volume, thus binding the poetry of the war into Leaves of Grass. This was the first step in Whitman's ongoing experiment with how to bleed the Civil War into Leaves... So the first copies of this edition include Drum-Taps, Sequel to Drum-Taps (though not listed in the primary table of contents), and a new separately printed cluster of poems called Songs Before Parting bound into the back of Leaves of Grass as separate entities with their own title pages and pagination. When he ran out of the already printed and unbound copies of Drum-Taps and Sequel, he issued a version with only Leaves and Songs Before Parting. Then he issued a version with only Leaves of Grass. There have been reports of other variations as well—a copy with Drum-Taps and Songs Before Parting but without Sequel." This copy contains the signature of E. R. Meade on its inner front pastedown, quite likely the same Edwin Ruthven Meade (1836-1877), a lawyer from Chenango County, New York, who was elected to the forty-forth congress as a New York State representative. The book is in very good condition with light to moderate exterior wear and mild page discoloration. It was acquired from a local Mennonite family, and its pages carry a faint wood smoke smell. The book's binding remains sturdy with splitting to yellow endpapers at the inner front and rear hinges. The endpapers show soil. A mild bump to the corner of the text block has turned down some margin corners of Songs Before Parting. The spine lettering on this copy remains beautifully fresh and intact, allowing this volume to sing from the shelves as a truly special edition of Whitman's work should.

        Nacre. Six Poems by Ruth Fainlight. Eight Mezzotints by Judith Rothchild

      Octon, France: Verdigris Press. 2010. First Edition, signed limited edition, one of 42 copies only, from a total edition of 50 (8 deluxe copies with one of the original copper plates) all on Hahnemulhe paper, each hand-numbered and signed by the author, Ruth Fainlight, and the artist, Judith Rothchild. Page size: 8-1/2 x 9-7/8 inches; 20pp. + colophon. Bound by Mark Lintott: leporello style with wrap- around boards of marbled paper made by Judith Rothchild over boards in grey with hints of deep pink and pale blue, raspberry-colored linen hinges, title, author, artist, and press printed in black in the spine, title on front panel, housed in custom-made matching grey paper over boards slipcase. The text has been hand set and printed letterpress in Vendome Romain on an Albion press of 1867 by Mark Lintott. The artist herself printed her mezzotints. The text has debossing on the title page with the title, NACRE, repeated twice in blind on either side of the printed title. The shaped colophon is debossed in the form of a cowrie shell. Noted American poet (living in London), Ruth Fainlight, has contributed six poems; the first "Pearls" has four sections; the fifth, "Clam Chowder" has two sections. Judith Rothchild has contributed eight mezzotints relating to or inspiring Ms. Fainlight&#39;s verse. The book was collaboration with each artist reacting and creating to her friend&#39;s work. The verse speculates on the beauty of the pearl and how it has been valued throughout the ages - reserved for the wealthy and powerful. Ms. Fainlight asks (in "Pearls") "Entire villages holding their breath: how many divers&#39; lives lost in the oyster beds for a royal crown?" The first mezzotint certainly captures the mysterious, dark, lustrous glamour of this "crystalline substance iridescent nacre" and the interplay between text and image is set from this beginning. As Ms. Fainlight&#39;s text turns to the sensuous associations of love, oysters - with great subtlety - the images take on a sensuality of their own. A stunning book that is at once provocative, intimate, and philosophical and more than a bit Proustian. An object as simple as a cowrie shell button causes the author to recall her mother&#39;s treasured memory. The reader / viewer is compelled to join in this lovely remembrance - and perhaps recall something of one&#39;s own. <br>See an <A HREF= >Image.</A><br>

Extracted from the various journal numbers and now presented bound together. 18pp, Folio journal leaves (265x185mm), bound together in grey paper-covered boards with manuscript lettering on the spine and housed in a black cloth-covered slipcase with folding chemise and lettered in gilt. Pages 353-358; 667-670; 409-410; 443-444; 501-502; 595-596. Very well preserved in fine state. SCARCE, JOSEPH LISTER&#146;S SECOND OF TWO EPOCH-MAKING PAPERS ON ANTISEPSIS, one of the most important advances in all of medical science and quite possibly the one which has been responsible for the largest number of lives saved by a singe medical technique. In 1860 Lister was appointed Regius Professor of Surgery in Glasgow. As in other hospitals at that time, the mortality rate at Glasgow for amputations and compound fractures exceeded forty percent due to rampant infection. Lister had for some years been studying the processes of inflammation and suppuration, and in the early 1860&#39;s he "began declaring suppuration a form of decomposition. The prevailing medical doctrine about the cause of putrefaction derived from Liebig&#39;s dictum (1839) that organic substances in the moist state and in the presence of oxygen undergo a peculiar state of combustion" (DSB). The resulting supposition that wounds should be shielded from the effects of atmospheric oxygen led to often harmful treatments. "Lister realized that oxygen could not be excluded from wounds, and he soon doubted its responsibility for provoking suppuration" (op. cit.). In 1865 a colleague introduced him to the work of Pasteur, whose revelation of the causes of wound sepsis provided Lister "the key for the banishment of hospital diseases" (ibid.). "To prevent bacterial infection Lister began using carbolic acid, a chemical then used routinely by the city of Carlisle to disinfect sewage. In a series of surgical cases he succeeded in completely eliminating infection. Although Lister was in error in assuming that the primary sources of infection were airborne, he had established the principle that the control of infection depended on the control of microorganisms" (Grolier Medicine). Presented here is the second of Lister&#146;s two main papers on antisepsis, &#145;read to the British Medical Association at their Dublin meeting of August 9, 1867. Lister announced that consistent application of his antiseptic treatment had entirely freed his Glasgow wards from hospital sepsis. After acknowledging his debt to Pasteur, he details his recommended procedures and describes further case histories of patients treated since publication of his previous article. Like Semmelweis&#39; recommendations for the implementation of aseptic hospital conditions a decade earlier, Lister&#39;s ideas initially encountered indifference or outright hostility in the surgical community, especially in Britain. Eventually a number of favorable reports, from German surgeons in particular, began to turn the tide, and by the eighties and nineties a return was made to the aseptic recommendations of Semmelweis. &#147;Withe the further work of Ernst von Bergmann in Berlin, antisepis and clouds of irritating carbolic acid mist gave way in the 1880&#146;s to aseptic surgery and the aseptic routines which characterize the modern operating room&#148; (Grolier Medicine 75). In recognition of Listers services to humanity, he was the first medical practitioner to be elevated to the peerage.&#146; (Norman) Also included in this collection of journal extracts are Lister&#146;s replies to unfounded accusations made by Sir James Simpson that Lister had plagiarized from works by surgeons in France and Germany, most specifically the French chemist Jules Lemaire. There is also one further follow up article included by Lister on his antiseptic methods.

        O-Kee-Pa: a religious ceremony; and other customs of the Mandans

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott & Co., 1867. Octavo. (10 x 6 3/4 inches). Half-title. 13 coloured lithographic plates by Simonau & Toovey, all after Catlin. Modern green crushed morocco, spine with raised bands in six compartments, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt. First American edition of one of the rarest works by the noted painter of American Indians: this is Catlin&#39;s last major publication. Catlin&#39;s account of O-Kee-Pa, or Buffalo Dance, a controversial Mandan religious ceremony, is of particular importance as he witnessed the sexually-charged and barbaric dance first hand shortly before the upper Missouri tribe was decimated by a small pox epidemic in 1837. Catlin here gives a full account of the ceremony, illustrating the rituals and self-tortures of the Buffalo dance in thirteen beautifully executed colour lithographs. An unauthorized account of the ceremony was privately circulated by the Philobiblon Society in 1865, prompting several, including Henry Schoolcraft, to question Catlin&#39;s descriptions. Thus, Catlin published the present work, and included within a letter by Prince Maximilian Wied zu Wied, who visited the Mandan with Karl Bodmer, though did not witness the ceremony first hand. 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 25 copies. A facsimile of these leaves is laid in. The present copy is from the library of Walter Stanley Campbell. Campbell, the first Rhodes scholar from Oklahoma, taught English and writing at the University of Oklahoma, but was noted for his research on Indians and the west. After spending time with the Sioux, he was adopted by a nephew of Sitting Bull. Bennett p.22; Field 262; Howes C244,"b"; McCracken Catlin pp.101-108; Pilling 693

        Australien, Skildradt af en Missionar som varit 14 ar I landet

      Stockholm,: Tryckt hos P.G.Berg, 1867.. Octavo; a fine copy in contemporary half red roan with marbled boards. Rare Swedish translation of the Reverend John Morison's Australia As It Is, published in the same year as the first edition.Morison was a missionary and wrote of his experiences in Australia and New Zealand, in particular commenting on the deplorable conditions of the Aborigines. Ferguson noted that the work detailed 'Colonial experiences with comments on social conditions. The depredations of the Aborigines and the atrocious measures taken against them in retaliation described.' Otherwise, Morison offers a wide-ranging description of Australian life from long experience. The chapter on gold is particularly interesting: as well as details of prospecting and life on the diggings, it contains information on the Americans, the Chinese, and the gold escort.This Swedish edition is testament to contemporary interest in the Australian colonies in Europe, and would no doubt have been read, at least in part, as a sort of emigrants' guide.Ferguson, 12828.

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.

      The book is very near fine, and would be fine but for the bookplate and owner's gift inscription described below.  A very slight imperfection exists where pages 57/58 and 59/60 were separated manually as about an inch of the two leaves were left joined at the bottom edge. This was caused by a minor cutting error at the bindery. The book is bound in tan cloth and it is exceptionally clean.  There is only the slightest of rubbing to the tips and spine ends. Likewise, the interior of the book is clean. The dust wrapper is moderately tanned on the spine and edges, as usual for this book, and there are short splits at the spine folds at both top and bottom. The top edge of the back panel of the dust jacket got snagged at some point resulting in a "U" shaped tear that is about 3/4 inch wide at the widest and extends downward about an inch and a half, but is without loss of paper. The top of the front dust jacket flap is cut at a shallow angle to remove the price.  I believe this was done by the publisher as the Limited Edition and the trade edition shared the same dust jacket, and certainly the limited edition was NOT offered at the same price as the trade issue.  In the only image I have been able to find of another copy of the limited edition dj it shows identical trimming. The aforementioned bookplate is that of Alice C. D. Riley (1867-1955).  The bookplate is on the front pastedown endpaper aligned to the fore-edge and top edge so that it is hidden by the dust jacket flap when the book is first opened. This book was acquired from the Great granddaughter of the original owner.  The book was acquired at the time of publication by Miss Riley  who was a successful writer of children's song lyrics and plays.  Her most famous legacy is the song The Slumber Boat (also known as The American Cradle Song) written in collaboration with composer Jessie Gaynor.  The pair also collaborated on a series of very successful and widely adopted song books for American elementary schools, Songs of the Child World (Tiny Tunes Books). The bookplate is a simple b/w lithographic drawing, musically themed. It bears a quote of both notes and lyrics from her most famous work (The Slumber Boat). There is a long fountain pen gift inscription to Miss Riley's daughter, dated January 1951 saying :" ... This is the most charming fairy tale I know in the original French. My favorite part is from page 61 on about his flower and the advise of the fox."Saint-Exupery disappeared over the Med in 1944 while flying for the Free French Air Force in Africa.  His three most important books are  Wind, Sand and Stars (Winner of National Book Award), Night Flight and The Little Prince.  The latter was written in and first published in the USA, as he came here prior to Pearl Harbor to lobby for the US to enter the war.  With such a short span between publication and his July 1944 death, opportunities to sign this little masterpiece were very few. This French language edition was limited to 260 numbered signed copies of which this is number 55.  (The ltd/signed English language edition was about twice that size). It is signed on the Limitation Page by the author.

An application to Congress by the Northern Pacific Railroad, headed by Minnesota railroad magnate James J. Hill, for federal aid to support the Railroad&#39;s expansion to the West Coast. The petition reviews the railroad&#39;s original charter and includes an impressive color folding map, "Map of the Country from Lake Superior to the Pacific Ocean," which illustrates the railroad&#39;s route from Duluth to Seattle and Portland. This map was originally produced to accompany Edwin Johnson&#39;s report on the feasibility of the railroad. This is one of the finest maps of the region traversed to be issued up to this time, and was produced by Colton in New York, not by the government. Wheat devotes several pages to discussing it, noting that "the detail of such a map defies cataloging." Above the map appears an elevation chart for the same distance. A fine account of railroad expansion in the Northwest. Rare. Not on OCLC. MIDLAND NOTES 68- 164. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 1169.

        The Book Of Psalms, Translated Out Of The Original Tongues, & with the former translations diligently compared & revised

      New York: American Bible Society, 1867. 3/4 cloth. Very Good +. 12 1/2 x 15 1/2 inches. Folio. [1] + [872] &#150; 974 leaves. Printed in raised letters for the blind. Tears to upper margin of front endpapers and, edges lightly soiled. Bound in contemporary 3/4 black leather and black cloth which is worn at edges. A scarce early American edition of its kind. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, several decades before the widespread adoption of Braille, printers and educators in France and Britain began developing a variety of tactile reading systems for the visually impaired, making independent reading among the blind possible for the first time in history. The results of an important competition at the Royal Society of Arts in Edinburgh in 1832 inspired the American activist, Samuel Gridley Howe, to research and develop his own embossed reading system for the blind, which emerged in 1835 as "Boston Line Type." Drawing upon the methods of James Gall, an entrant in the Edinburgh competition, Howe created an alphabet of angular raised roman letters that "was said to be far less bulky and therefore less expensive than contemporary European roman-letter systems" (PRINTING HISTORY, p. 20). With the aid of a $1000 grant from the American Bible Society, Howe purchased the first printing press for the New England Institution for the Education of the Blind (today, the Perkins School for the Blind) and produced the country&#39;s first complete raised-letter Bible for the American Bible Society in 1842. The present Book of Psalms appears to have been printed with the first complete Howe-ABS Bible, retaining the pagination of that production, and was published separately with a new title page. ABS had published Selections of Psalms in 1835, and the Pennsylvania Institution for the Instruction of the Blind a Psalms and Hymns in 1840 and 1848, this is a very early edition of the Psalms.

        Circular[s]: Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, Commandery of the State of New York. 1867-1922 [Eight Volumes]

      New York: [Commandery of the State of New York], 1867-1922. First edition. Three quarter morocco over red boards, four raised bands ruled in gilt, gilt titles; one volume matching cloth. A very good set with the bookplate of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, Commandery of the State of Illinois on front pastedowns of most volumes, shadow of sticker on foot of most backstrips. spine ends and joints scuffed on most volumes, well bound, most circulars quite clean. 8vo. The Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, begun in Philadelphia in 1865, was modeled on the Society of the Cincinnati, and formed to protect the republic amid rumors of a plot to destroy the government after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Among its members were Presidents Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, Benjamin Harrison, and William McKinley. By 1899 it had over 8000 members which included nearly every officer of note. The New York Commandery was the second formed after Pennsylvania. This collection is a nearly complete run lacking perhaps a dozen and a half meeting and other notices (out of 1194) prior to 1879, otherwise complete through 1922, ending with the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial. Contains circulars, papers, and annual meeting notices (as well as a few unnumbered items such as letters, publication advertisements, etc). The meeting notices are nearly all signed, corrected, and annotated by the New York Commandery recorders; they were then sent to the Illinois Commandery for their records. Written in hand in the early volumes, and by stamp latter on, the disposition of each person seeking membership was noted; the first volume contains additional and extensive handwritten notes and a letter explaining the rejection of a candidate by Horatio King (1811-1897) who was Postmaster General of the United States under James Buchanan and the first recorder. A later volume contains a tipped in typed and signed letter, explaining an expulsion for "conduct unbecoming of an officer." Beginning in the first volume is the appearance of the first black bordered "In Memoriam" notice, usually four pages, with a biography of the deceased. These biographies will,slowly come to make up the bulk of the circulars as the former officers passed away. A wealth of information and a very scarce collection, made irreplaceable by the annotations and corrections of the recorders.

Books were a scarce commodity to young James, who lost his father before the age of two, and was raised by his mother who struggled to maintain a humble existence. Both James Garfield and his wife Lucretia were voracious readers and amassed a large collection of books and pamphlets. Some twenty years ago, several dozen of his books were de-accessioned. This 1867 book is one of them.

He developed a system of romanizing the Chinese language based on pronunciation conventions of the Beijing dialect. The system was later modified by Herbert Giles (another diplomat and scholar who had succeeded him as professor of Chinese at Cambridge) and became known as the Wade-Giles system. It was widely used throughout much of the twentieth century to represent the sounds of Mandarin in Western publications and is still used to represent some personal and place names. This work was prepared with the express purpose of preparing individuals destined to join Her Majesty's Consular Service in China with the written language of government as it appeared in books and in official correspondence. (Cordier III, 1689; DNB).

      [Washington. ]. 1867 - 39pp. plus large color folding map. Modern maroon cloth, gilt maroon morocco label. Minor dust soiling in text. Map bright and clean. Overall very good. An application to Congress by the Northern Pacific Railroad, headed by Minnesota railroad magnate James J. Hill, for federal aid to support the Railroad's expansion to the West Coast. The petition reviews the railroad's original charter and includes an impressive color folding map, "Map of the Country from Lake Superior to the Pacific Ocean," which illustrates the railroad's route from Duluth to Seattle and Portland. This map was originally produced to accompany Edwin Johnson's report on the feasibility of the railroad. This is one of the finest maps of the region traversed to be issued up to this time, and was produced by Colton in New York, not by the government. Wheat devotes several pages to discussing it, noting that "the detail of such a map defies cataloging." Above the map appears an elevation chart for the same distance. A fine account of railroad expansion in the Northwest. Rare. Not on OCLC. MIDLAND NOTES 68- 164. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 1169.

      Paris et Genevé, Masson et fils, 1867Album In-folio grande Legatura editoriale in tutta tela color bruno; autore e titolo impressi in oro al piatto anteriore. Occhiello, frontespizio; 3 carte di testo bianche al verso a fronte di altrettante 3 tavole litografiche fuori testo raffiguranti fossili e segnate con le lettere A, B, e C; seguono  28 su XXIX tavole litografiche fuori testo, mancanza della numero XVIII sostituita con una fotocopia. La prima e la penultima rappresentano carte geo-topografiche della Valla d&rsquo;Aosta e della Savoia. Le altre rappresentano schemi  di natura geologica o gradevoli paesaggi, anche 4 per tavola. Nonostante il Perret citi una tavola iniziale segnata con la lettera D tutti gli esemplari censiti riportano solo le prime 3 segnate A, B, e C come per l&rsquo;esemplare in esame. L&rsquo;autore fu un celebre geologo ginevrino che studiò per  30 anni il territorio valdostano e savoiardo limitrofo,  fu inoltre attivo alpinista  fondatore della sezione ginevrina del Club Alpino  Svizzero; si interessò, inoltre, alla conservazione dei massi erratici. Grazie a una scalata  diede anche il nome ad una cima : il Mont Favre. I suoi studi geologici vennero pubblicati nell&rsquo;opera in esame, molto apprezzata per il rigore scientifico e per l&rsquo;apporto di nuove conoscenze sulla materia geologica delle valli studiate e sulle loro catene montuose. L&rsquo;atlante qui presente venne accompagnato da 3 volumi di testo di formato In-8° purtroppo mancanti. Il significativo apparato iconografico, prevalentemente di carattere scientifico,  è impreziosito da alcune piacevoli e raffinate vedute paesaggistiche. Esemplare in eccellenti condizioni, segnalata mancanza di una tavola. ITALIANO
