        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. 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.

        Le Petit Prince (Limited, signed 1st Edition)

      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.

      [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.

        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] – 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'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.

        IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES.MR. RAMSEY SUBMITTED THE FOLLOWING MEMORIAL, &c. NORTHERN PACIFIC RAILROAD.

      [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.

        RECHERCHES GÉOLOGIQUES DANS LES PARTIES DE LA SAVOIE, DU PIÉMONT ET DE LA SUISSE VOISINES DU MONT BLANC. ? ATLAS ?

      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’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’esemplare in esame. L’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’opera in esame, molto apprezzata per il rigore scientifico e per l’apporto di nuove conoscenze sulla materia geologica delle valli studiate e sulle loro catene montuose. L’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

        Le Confessioni di un Ottuagenario.

      Firenze, Le Monnier, 1867. 1867 2 voll. in-16° (181x110mm), pp. (4), XVIII, 498; (4), 596; legatura coeva m. pelle verde cupo con titolo, fregi e filetti in oro ai dorsi. Piatti marmorizzati. Minimi restauri alla legatura, qualche fioritura e alone. Ottimo stato. Edizione originale di uno dei maggiori romanzi della letteratura italiana (che assumerà poi il definitivo titolo di "Confessioni di un Italiano"), composto dal giovanissimo scrittore in soli otto mesi, tra il 1857 e 1858, e pubblicato postumo. Il Nievo era infatti annegato non ancora trentenne nel viaggio di ritorno dalla Sicilia, dove aveva fatto parte dei Mille garibaldini, nella notte tra il 4 e il 5 marzo 1861, nel naufragio del vapore Ercole, al largo della costa sorrentina. L'edizione venne stampata per volere e cura della poetessa Erminia Fuà Fusinato; alle pp. in cifre romane del primo vol. figurano dei cenni biografici sul Nievo a cura degli editori e un componimento poetico commemorativo dello scrittore padovano steso dalla stessa Fuà Fusinato. Nel suo capolavoro, ricco di pagine indimenticabili, originalissimo svolgimento della forma del romanzo storico in cui gli accadimenti del nostro Risorgimento si intrecciano con le vicende biografiche del protagonista, il Nievo dà vita fra l'altro al personaggio della Pisana, forse il più bel personaggio femminile di tutte le nostre lettere. Parenti, Prime edizioni, p. 368.

        ALS signed John Bowring

      1867.. Very good condition. One page hand written letter signed 'John Bowring', to a W. Dixon, possibly the English author and editor William Hepworth Dixon, referring to Bowring's friendship with Louis Philippe, the king of France, and General Dumouriez. The complete text: "My Dear Sir, You may perhaps not deem this (ornate) contribution to history which I enclose unacceptable. I was very intimate with L. P. having been introduced to him by the only man whom I remember to have had any real influence over him, (one) General Dumouriez." Bowring was an accomplished linguist, writer, translator and diplomat. Bowring served as the fourth governor of Hong Kong from 1854 to 1859, and became involved in several incidents, including the Arrow Incident and the attacks on Canton which precipitated the Second Opium War. Even though there were standing instructions from the home government to avoid armed conflict with China, Bowring waited only until naval forces that had been involved in the Crimean War were available, and then ordered British gunboats under Rear Admiral Sir Michael Seymour to "punish" Canton. Bowring and Seymour were commended for their actions by Lord Clarendon, the Foreign Secretary. The war served as a pretext for advancing British and foreign interests in China such as the loosening of trade restrictions and the continuation of the opium trade. Bowring was a prolific author, writing accounts of his missions, works on poetry, and political & economic treatises. In his 'Autobiographical Recollections', Bowring writes of Louis Philippe and Dumouriez: "I was then intimate with the Duke of Orleans, who was in disgrace at Court. He had been denied the privilege of sitting in the Chamber of Peers, no higher title than Serene Highness was conceded to him, and it was believed that he was the centre of a hundred conspiracies to overturn the government. It was supposed, as I had travelled much, and had had much intercourse with the liberals of Europe, that I was a secret agent, as I undoubtedly was a personal friend of Louis Philippe, to whom I had been originally introduced by General Dumouriez ..." Charles-Francois du Perier Dumouriez (1739 –1823) was a French general who distinguished himself in the French Revolution, but ultimately defected to the Austrians, having been defeated by them at Neerwinden in 1793, and having fallen under suspicion of the French Directory. He is said to have fled from France on the horse of the future King Louis Philippe.5 1/4 x 8in., cream paper, with 'Claremont, Exeter', the family estate's embossed stamp at top. Written and signed clearly in black ink, dated 20 May 1867.A bit ruffled at edges, closed short tear, old folds o/w very good.

The pages are relatively clean with very little foxing. The text block in both volumes is sound. A good candidate for a leather binding. Hard Cover
