        Lock of hair.

      No place or date. - A blond strand of hair, tied into a circular locket with pink string, mounted on a certificate of authenticity dated 1867. Matted. 8vo. The locket's provenance is accounted for by the included certificates of authenticity and confirmation of sale for nearly its entire first century: first, in the possession of the Weimar librarian and counsellor Theodor Kräuter (1790-1856), since 1805 a scribe at the Ducal Library and Goethe's private secretary from 1811 onwards; by descent to his nephew, the Weimar lawyer and writer Robert Keil (1826-96), who vouches for its authenticity on his drystamped, sealed stationery: "These are hairs of Schiller which belonged to the estate of the late librarian and counsellor Dr. Theodor Kräuter here in Weimar, former private secretary to Goethe. This is confirmed by Kräuter's nephew, Dr. Robert Keil, lawyer. Weimar, 20 April 1867". This certificate was probably occasioned by the relic's transfer to the Weimar Schillerhaus, the custodian of which was a distant relative of Keil's, the Weimar art dealer Eduard Lobe. But nine months later, Lobe sold the lock to the historically-minded Chicago lawyer and entrepreneur, Thomas Barbour Bryan (1828-1906): "This lock of Schiller's I have on this day sold to Mr. T. B. Bryan, and herewith confirm its authenticity. Weimar, 23 January 1868". Bryan is remembered as a sponsor of and Commissioner-At-Large for Chicago's 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. As early as 1860 he had exhibited G. P. A. Healy's portrait of Abraham Lincoln at his "Bryan Hall" gallery; in 1864 he had a lithographic facsimile of Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation prepared which he sent the President for examination. - Acquired from an Austrian noble collection.

Good. Second piece also with old folds and separation at lower portion of sheet. Some light chipping and wear with minor losses. About good. Souvenir from a railroad excursion from Philadelphia to Fort Harker, Kansas, which set out on May 31st and reached Fort Harker on June 6th and returned to Philadelphia on the 14th. The goal was to impress potential major customers and possible investors with the progress of the railroad toward the Rockies. The piece prints the proceedings of their meeting, held at Fort Harker, in which they extol the virtues and comforts of their travel accommodations and the helpfulness of everyone involved. The final page contains a list of the excursionists, noting which are from the East and which joined the party at St Louis and points West. There are nearly 150 names on the list, with travelers hailing from Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, West Virginia, Indiana, Detroit, New Orleans, and England, among others. The second piece records similar text, being the minutes of a meeting held by the excursionists on June 7th at Fort Harker. The Union Pacific Eastern Division ran from Kansas City, Kansas through to Colorado Territory, where it joined up with the Union Pacific's main line by 1870. The railroad operated as the Kansas Pacific from 1869 to 1880.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1867 : 1867 Original Wisden in Very Good Condition

      1867. As far as I am aware, this is the first 1867 in original covers to be offered on this site. The book itself is in excellent condition. The front and rear wrappers are very slightly darkened and with the odd mark as can be seen from the photographs. The wrappers are entirely complete without any chips or loss. There is a small closed tear to the front wrapper which has not resulted in any loss at all. Internally, the book is in fabulous condition for it's age. The pages are clean, original and unmarked. The book has had no restoration whatsoever. It is very rare to find a book of this age in entirely original condition with it's original wrappers. A super copy. We also have fabulous copies for 1864 and 1868 in original wrappers which we hope to list shortly.

        MISS RAVENEL'S CONVERSION from Secession to Loyalty

      1867. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1867. 2 pp preliminary ads + 6 pp terminal ads, undated. Original green cloth lettered in gilt, with beveled boards. First Edition of this momentous novel of the American Civil War, published just two years after its conclusion.~The distinction... of writing the first American novel which may be called realistic in a modern sense belongs to John W. De Forest... Coldly truthful in its descriptions of battles and camps, crisp and pointed in its dialogue, penetrating if not over-subtle in its character analysis, sensible in its plot and in its general temper, it is still almost as convincing as it was once precocious [van Doren].~The panoramic sweep of the book suggests GONE WITH THE WIND, though its spirit is very different. Into this novel De Forest poured his own experiences of battle -- quite invalidating the familiar claim that Stephen Crane was the first writer to break with the romantic tradition in stories of war -- and his wide experience of life and knowledge of character, both north and south. The book alone would suffice to establish De Forest's claim both for historic importance and absolute achievement in the field of the American novel [Wagenknecht].~This copy is in green sand-grain cloth, one of several options (no priority). Condition is, in a word, FINE. Blanck 4605.

        Book of the Artists, American Artist Life

      Putnam, New York, 1867. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. TUCKERMAN, HENRY T. Book of the Artists, American Artist Life, New York: Putnam, 1867. Quarto, large-paper edition, pp. xi, 7-639, black buckram boards with green lettering to spine, a rebinding with numerous extra illustrations bound in, as well as three holograph letters by the author, and a note from a former owner. The letters are: 1. A one-page exhortation in verse (Tuckerman liked to write in verse) to Col. Frank Howe, a Union Army figure of some importance behind the lines, just after the outbreak of the Civil War. 2. A 2-page (one leaf) letter to Gen. Adam Badeau, an aide to Ulysses Grant on the battlefield and in the White House, with personal comments and remarks on Badeau's work in progress -- a massive book about Grant. Dated 1870, not reproduced here. 3. A 4-line verse dated 1864 -- it may have been part of a letter or merely something Tuckerman wrote for himself. Howes, T-401, says 50 large-paper copies were released in addition to a trade edition. It is unclear how may of the illustrations here were original, and how many were added later. There are about 25 in all; a few were simply laid in. All are engravings except for one albumen photo print, of Charles Robert Leslie. Tuckerman profiles major and minor American artists and is still considered an important scholarly reference. See Arntzen & Rainwater, E-178. The present copy is very clean and tight, with a few marks to the boards. Special Limited Edition, first issue in this format. Size: Quarto. Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing.

        Lehrbuch des Pandektenrechts.

      Düsseldorf, Verlagshandlung von Julius Buddeus, 1867-70. 2. Aufl. 3 Bde. 8vo. XV, 736; XV, 883; X, 1 Bl., 421 S. Schöne zeitgenössische Halblederbände mit Rückenprägung und Buntpapierbezug. (alte, zeitgenössische St.a.T.). Zweite Ausgabe des berühmten Pandektenlehrbuches, seitenidentisch zur Erstausgabe! - Die Editio Princeps erfolgte für den ersten Bandes seines auf drei Bände angelegten Pandektenlehrbuches im Jahre 1862. Der zweite Band folgte in den Jahren 1862-63. Der dritte Band erschien erst im Jahre 1870, weil die Ausarbeitung verzögert wurde durch die zweiten Auflagen des ersten Bandes (1867) und des zweiten Bandes (1868): \"Nachdem der zweite Band dieses Lehrbuchs, das Obligationenrecht und das Familienrecht enthaltend, in den Jahren 1865 und 1866 erschienen ist, sehe ich mich genötigt, ehe ich an die Ausarbeitung des dritten gehen kann, eine neue Auflage der beiden ersten Bände zu besorgen, von welcher ich hiermit dem Publikum den ersten übergebe. Diese Auflage ist keine umgearbeitete, aber ich darf sie eine verbesserte nennen... Die Besorgung des ersten Bandes dieser neuen Auflage hat mich bei angestrengter Arbeit ein ganzes Jahr in Anspruch genommen; ich darf nicht hoffen, daß der zweite Band in geringerer Zeit wird vollendet werden können. So ist es mir unmöglich, das Erscheinen des dritten Bandes für eine frühere Zeit, als für das Jahr 1869, in Aussicht zu stellen... Auch diesen zweiten Band habe ich wie den ersten, in sachlicher und sprachlicher Beziehung, einer sorgfältigen Revision unterworfen; namentlich ist die neuere Literatur überall nachgetragen und eingearbeitet worden...\". - Über die Bedeutung von Bernhard Windscheid im Rahmen der Pandektenrechtswissenschaft sowie in der Geschichte der deutschen Rechtswissenschaft gibt es keinen Streit. Windscheid wird zu den bedeutendsten Zivilrechtslehrern Deutschlands überhaupt gezählt. Er steht in einer Reihe mit Jhering und Puchta, übertroffen in seinem Ansehen nur von Savigny. Sein Pandektenlehrbuch ist jedoch das bedeutendste Zivilrechtslehrbuch, das je ein deutscher Rechtsgelehrter geschrieben hat. Kein anderes Lehrbuch hat so intensiv und beinahe so absolut die deutsche Rechtswissenschaft beherrscht wie das von Windscheid. Die Bedeutung und das Ansehen seines Lehrbuches war umfassend, sowohl die Rechtslehre, der Rechtsunterricht wie auch die Rechtspraxis orientierten sich bis zum BGB an Windscheid. Über den Rang von Windscheid und sein Pandektenlehrbuch gibt sein Freund Rudolph von Jhering (1818-1892) treffend Auskunft. In seinem Brief vom 18. März 1886 an Bernhard Windscheid selbst bringt er es auf den Punkt, wenn er den Unterschied seines Freundes Windscheid von den anderen Pandektisten seiner Zeit beschreibt: \"Du repräsentierst die romanistische Wissenschaft wie kein anderer. Wir anderen repräsentieren ein Stück derselben oder eine gewisse Richtung innerhalb derselben, die ganze keiner außer Dir.\" - Windscheid hat ein modernes Lehrbuch geschrieben. Es wollte die geltende Zivilrechtsdogmatik insgesamt erfassen, ohne auszuufern, die Kontroversen aufzeigen, ohne an Materialfülle zu ersticken. Diese Aufgabe hat Windscheid meisterlich gelöst, oder wie er es selbst formuliert. In seinem Vorwort sah sich Windscheid in Konkurrent zu den Lehrbüchern von Ludwig ARNDTS (1803-1878) und Georg Friedrich PUCHTA (1798-1846), die er aber bereits mit der ersten Auflage verdrängte. Zur Erfassung der älteren Literatur verweist Windscheid in seinem Vorwort selbst auf den großen Pandektenkommentar von Christian Friedrich GLÜCK (1755-1831). - Bd. 1 : Einleitung.

Its editor, Nicholas Belfield Dennys (1813?-99) claimed it was the first such comprehensive handbook printed for public distribution. Intended for visitors and new residents, the guide was originally typeset in China, allowing place names and other words to be printed in Chinese characters. The specially commissioned maps were also engraved in China. The book includes physical descriptions and brief histories of over twenty cities, details of schools and libraries, population statistics and much practical information, as well as a list of other publications on China and Japan.

        Three photographic portraits by the early amateur photographer James Musgrove, Bulla homestead, 1867

      Three albumen print photographs, carte de visite format, each 102 x 64 mm; two are inscribed verso in ink in Musgrove's own hand: 'Photo by Jas. Musgrove, Bulla May/67'; the third is also inscribed by Musgrove and dated 'Feb/67'. The albumen prints have a few light marks and some very mild foxing, but are in a very good state of preservation. The Victorian amateur photographer and inventor James Musgrove is not listed in Mechanical Eye (Davies and Stanbury), even though other amateur photographers such as Joseph and Ernest Docker and George Fordyce Story are included in that work. A late nineteenth century photograph by Musgrove of the creamery at Oaklands is held in the collection of the State Library of Victoria; otherwise, there appear to be no other extant copies of his photographs recorded in Australian collections. The quality of these three extremely rare, early portraits belies Musgrove's 'non-professional' status. The subjects in these wonderful compositions, most likely family members or neighbouring station owners, are photographed in Musgrove's 'home studio' setting at Bulla, north of Melbourne, in front of a hand drawn backdrop with a Classical architecture theme, probably created by Musgrove himself. Although he was a farmer, but was also deeply interested in science and technology, and is known to have applied for patents for several agricultural implements.

        Book of the Artists, American Artist Life

      Putnam, 1867, Hardcover, Book Condition: Near Fine Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket, First Edition. TUCKERMAN, HENRY T. Book of the Artists, American Artist Life, New York: Putnam, 1867. Quarto, large-paper edition, pp. xi, 7-639, black buckram boards with green lettering to spine, a rebinding with numerous extra illustrations bound in, as well as three holograph letters by the author, and a note from a former owner. The letters are: 1. A one-page exhortation in verse (Tuckerman liked to write in verse) to Col. Frank Howe, a Union Army figure of some importance behind the lines, just after the outbreak of the Civil War. 2. A 2-page (one leaf) letter to Gen. Adam Badeau, an aide to Ulysses Grant on the battlefield and in the White House, with personal comments and remarks on Badeau's work in progress -- a massive book about Grant. Dated 1870, not reproduced here. 3. A 4-line verse dated 1864 -- it may have been part of a letter or merely something Tuckerman wrote for himself. Howes, T-401, says 50 large-paper copies were released in addition to a trade edition. It is unclear how may of the illustrations here were original, and how many were added later. There are about 25 in all; a few were simply laid in. All are engravings except for one albumen photo print, of Charles Robert Leslie. Tuckerman profiles major and minor American artists and is still considered an important scholarly reference. See Arntzen & Rainwater, E-178. The present copy is very clean and tight, with a few marks to the boards. Special Limited Edition, first issue in this format. Size: Quarto. Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Antiquarian & Rare; United States; 19th century; Art & Design. Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request. Inventory No: 53436.

        A small archive of 33 printed invoices from five booksellers (Lee & Shepard and Little, Brown of Boston; Porter & Coates of Philadelphia; and J. Sabin & Sons and Scribner, Welford of New York), dated 1867-1879, to a John A. Burnham of Boston.

      During the 13 years covered by these invoices, John A. Burnham of Boston - apparently an attorney who worked in downtown Boston and traveled to New York and Philadelphia - was slowly acquiring the classic gentleman's library, with the standard English and American authors in sets and bindings. His favorite book shop by far was Little, Brown, which was located not far from Burnham's office in Pemberton Square, but he obviously patronized other establishments when he traveled. The invoices vary in amount, but on occasion Burnham spent well over $100.00. In fine condition.

        Eigentlicher Entwurff eines weißgelblichten und kalchichten Steins, welcher bey einem steurischen Emigranten, Herrn H.A.P.F.z.N. . . . im Monat Martio ao. 1654. dessen eusserliche und innerliche gestalt allhier vor augen gestellet wird.[Nuremberg], Georg Walch, [1654/55]. Folio (20.5×16 cm). Engraved flier reporting the surgical removal of a growth from a nobleman's elbow, with 2 illustrations (each about 2.5×6 cm), of the exterior and the interior of the growth after removal, engraved by Georg Walch. Mounted on an 18th-century (?) piece of paper.

      Drugulin, Historischer Bilderatlas, II (1867), 2399; C.G. Müller, Verzeichnis von Nünbergischen topographisch-hitorischen Kupferstichen und Holzschnitten (1791), p. 205. An rare engraved print (an illustrated flier or Flugschrift) reporting the surgical removal of a large calciferous growth from the elbow of Hans Adam Praunfalcken (1604-1655), Freyherrn zu Neuhaus. The illustrations of the removed growth's exterior and interior are apparently original size and have bars indicating the three dimensions (4.8×2.2×1.6 cm): it weighed, together with some smaller pieces, 1.5 Lot (more than 26 grams). Besides the title and the captions for the two illustrations, the flier includes a two-line Latin epithet and a 4-line German verse. With a violet ink stamp in the foot margin and on the back of the backing paper ("Sammlung Hans Hopf"). With the margins trimmed approximately to the plate edge without affecting the texts or images. There is a faint stain along the let edge, but the flier is otherwise in very good condition.

        MILITARY COMMISSION. PROCEEDINGS IN THE CASE OF THE UNITED STATES AGAINST DUNCAN G. McRAE, WILLIAM J. TOLAR, DAVID WATKINS, SAMUEL PHILLIPS AND THOMAS POWERS, FOR THE MURDER OF ARCHIBALD BEEBEE AT FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA. ON THE 11TH DAY OF FEBRUARY, 1867. TOGETHER WITH THE ARGUMENT OF ED. GRAHAM HAYWOOD, SPECIAL JUDGE ADVOCATE, IN REPLY TO THE SEVERAL ARGUMENTS OF THE COUNSEL FOR THE DEFENCE.

      Raleigh, N.C.:: Published for Robert Avery, U.S.A., Judge Advocate,. 1867. [3], [1 blank], 398pp. Bound in original scuffed sheep [spine chips and other wear]. Text toned with light foxing, Very Good. In this Reconstruction case the prosecution claimed that defendants had murdered a black man who allegedly raped a white woman; the decedent was killed while in custody. Arguing for the prosecution, Haywood urges the military commission to convict the accused. Beebee, "a young man of color, was accused of having attempted to commit a rape, upon Miss Elvira Massey," near Fayetteville. After the preliminary hearing at the court house, a mob overcame the sheriff and his deputies, and Archy Beebee "was killed then and there...by means of a leaden bullet, shot from a pistol, held in the hands of some one who was in that crowd." Haywood denounces the "evil passions" of the mob, reflected in defense counsel's approval of the notion that, "when crimes of the nature of that charged against Beebee, were attempted-- the populace stood ready to redress them by violence." Haywood, painstakingly reviewing the facts of the case and applicable law, refers on several occasions to the overwhelming public disapproval to which he has been subjected but to which he has refused to succumb. FIRST EDITION. McDade 94. Thornton 13829. Not in Harv. Law Cat., Work, Blockson, Weinstein, LCP.

        Les époques géologiques de l'Auvergne. Avec 170 planches ou figures, dont plusieurs coloriées et des autographes de Dolomieu, d'Hauy & de De Saussure et un dessin fac simile de Madame Necker de Saussure. I-V. (complete).

      Paris, Baillière et fils, 1867. Five volumes in five. Large 8vo (23.7 x 15.2 cm). 2,758 pp.; 180 engraved and lithographed (tinted, or chromolithographed) plates [1-141, 143-169, 41(bis), 57(bis), 89bis, 107(bis), 149bis, 152bis, 163bis, 163ter, 165bis, 165ter, 165quater, 165quinter], on 107 sheets (several double-sized). Uniform burgundy half morocco over marbled boards. Spines with five raised bands, gilt title. Marbled endpapers. Speckled edges.l The most important geological work by the French botanist (mentioned by Charles Darwin in his preface to "On the Origin of Species") and geologist Henri Lecoq (1802-1871). The fine illustrations of geological features and views in the Massif Central of Southern France, with its many volcanoes, are by Lecoq himself. Included are three facsimile letters of the geologists Dolomieu, Haüy, and De Saussure. Because there are several bis-plates, and many "plates" are grouped on single sheets, the true number of different plates is ten more than the 170 mentioned on the title pages, but the actual number of sheets is lower. Plate 142 was not published. Plates 92 and 151 appear in two different states of colour (not counted as extras). Signed dedication by Lecoq to "Monsieur Alluard/professeur à la faculté/hommage de l'auteur" on the half title of volume I. In the mid-19th century a Mr. Alluaud was director of the Puy-de-Dome observatory. A few pages and plates with a circular water-stain (some, apparently, from before binding), a few pages lightly spotted, but in general a very good, clean set with all the published plates. Cat. BM(NH), p. 1076; Ward & Carozzi, 1350.
