This set of peculiarities makes the city’s history different from the rest of China.

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.

        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.. 8vo. Three quarter morocco over red boards, four raised bands ruled in gilt, gilt titles; one volume matching cloth. First edition. 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. 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.

Where there are no guards there is offsetting to text pages and there is occasional offsetting from the black and white plates. The plate of 'Spanish' has been rebound in to the Poultry volume. Pigeons has a damp stain affecting the top left corner of the frontispiece; page 35 has a little paper missing from the margin not affecting text; the almond tumbler and runts plates have a dampstain affecting the top left corner; magpies has a damp stain affecting the upper right corner. The last few leaves of Pigeons have some browning. The rear endpaper has a little white marking and is splitting although the book is sound.

        The Charles Dickens Dinner: An Authentic Record of The Public Banquet Given to Mr. Charles Dickens at the Freemasons' Hall, London, On Saturday, November 2, 1867, Prior to His Departure for the United States with a Report of the Speeches from Shorthand Notes

      London and Boston: Chapman and Hall; Ticknor and Field, 1867. First edition. A Very Good example of this noteworthy piece of Charles Dickens ephemera, being the record of a dinner given him prior to his departure for America where he was to give his farewell American reading tour --- Dickens and his wife had previously visited the United States in 1842 --- which American Tour was then followed by a series of Farewell Readings in England, Scotland, and Ireland during 1868 and 1869. The Freemasons' Hall Banquet memorialized in the Pamphlet here offered featured over 100 prominent persons of the day and included speeches by Lord Lytton, the Dinner's Chairman, Anthony Trollope, and others. This is a Very Good example of this uncommon item in the Publisher's original stitched wrappers, with some moderate edge wear, a split at the spine below the lower stitch, and some modest soiling. A noteworthy Dickens item and one connecting him with many of the great persons of the day.

        THE CLAVERINGS (Superb Copy, Fine in Original Publisher's Cloth)

      London: Smith, Elder, 1867. Trollope, Anthony. THE CLAVERINGS. London: Smith, Elder, 1867. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION in Two Volumes, original publisher's bright green cloth, gilt, ornately blocked in black and gold (an example of the scarce and preferable first binding state). 8vo, all ads correct. In FINE, ORIGINAL UNTOUCHED CONDITION, rarely seen thus. Virtually unworn with only the most trivial of faults; a little light foxing can be found on the edges, on both sets of prelims as well as the title of Volume One. Michael Sadleir, Trollope's bibliographer, said of THE CLAVERINGS that "there is not a loose end, not a patch of drowsiness, not a moment of false proportion." It still stands as one of the best of Trollope's forty-seven novels and one of the famous Victorian author's high spots. This is the compelling tale of Henry Clavering's unrequited love for beautiful Julia Brabazon (who declines his pure affections for a depraved marriage with a member of the nobility which, alas, leads to her fall from grace). However, being jilted has the fortuitous result of eventually guiding Henry toward redemption and a better outcome (happy ending). In England's 1860s, men struggled for career and it was no easy task for a simple engineer (in this case) to rise in the highly rigid Victorian caste system. But Julia Brabazon got the truly raw deal, as women had only marriage as a path to getting ahead in the world and the wrong choice, as here, was the way to ruin. An interesting social document as well as a fascinating novel. Sadleir, Trollope, p. 27. Wolff 6771. Stunning copy of the first edition, first binding. A better copy would be difficult to find... First Edition. Fine. Illus. by M. Ellen Edwards.

Buckram presentation box. Mint in clamshell box. Edn ltd to 65 numbered copies with fly. De luxe limited edition of 65 copies in green goatskin with fly mounted inside front boards. Writing in 1920, Sir Herbert Maxwell says: "I have never detected any fallacy in Francis's precepts for such branches of the fisher craft as I have practised, neither have I handled any book which gives such succinct and trustworthy instruction in every form of fresh-water angling . His experience was universal, his knowledge encyclopaedic." In addition to much information on contemporary trout and fishing methods, Francis devotes more than one hundred pages to the dressing of salmon flies. The colour plates are magnificent. Although firstpublished in 1867, FFCL has chosen the text and illustrations of the most complete and revised edition of the Fifth edition of 1880 with the additions of Sir Herbert Maxwell's eight page Introduction of 1920 plus theFrancis Francis Prefaces to both the first and second editions. One of the following salmon flies tied by the brilliant Danish tyer Flemming Andersen is set in the front endpaper: The Snow Fly, The Switching Sandy, The Black Dog, The Royal, The Owenmore, The Old Blue.

        BEADLE'S DIME BASE-BALL PLAYER: Comprising the Proceedings of the Tenth Annual Base-Ball Convention, Together with the Amended Rules Adopted, Rules for the Formation of Clubs, and the Constitution and By-Laws of the National Association. Also, the Base-Ball Averages for 1866

      Beadle and Company Publishers 118 William Street. New York:: Beadle and Company, Publishers, 118 William Street.. (1867).. 12mo. 6-1/8" x 3-3/4". 1st edition thus, & 6th edition overall (Johannsen BEADLE, p. 407). [3] - 96, [2] pp. 2 page advert @ rear for other Beadle publications (including the infamous "The Dead Letter"). NB. This pagination scheme matches that as given by Johannsen).. Bound in an 1870s style green cloth with gilt spine lettering (though later). Lacks wrappers.. Binding - Nr Fine. Text block - VG+ (gutter edge of title leaf with. a small, unobtrusive light brown stain carrying through, though. fainter, to the next leaf).. Chadwick generally regarded as the first 'Sports' writer in the United States; the "Rules of Baseball are largely his work..." [DAB]. This continuous series by Beadle & Chadwick, of which this is the 6th example, ran through 1881 & was first issued in 1860 [none in 1861 or 1863]; it has the distinction of being the first ever of such a nature, and gave rise to the many iterations today's fans so much enjoy, as well as laboriously study [can you say, "Fantasy Baseball"?]. All these early guides now quite rare- none of this series at auction these last 30 years, and OCLC shows but one listing [7th ed] for the 9 editions up to 1870. . Field diagram on the copyright page [which, we note, positions the umpire in front, and to the right, of the catcher].
