        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland [together with] Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1867 & 1872. 2 volumes, octavo (121 × 179 mm). Bound by Riviere & Son in near-contemporary brown calf, twin morocco labels to spines lettered gilt, gilt decoration to spine compartments, gilt rules to boards, all edges and turn-ins gilt, marbled endpapers, original wrappers bound-in at rear. Illustrated throughout by Sir John Tenniel. Some light rubbing to extremities, some spotting to rear cover of Looking Glass. small crack to front hinges but still sound, occasional light foxing to contents. An excellent set. First edition, first issue of Through the Looking-Glass (with the misspelling of "wabe" in the second line of the poem on p. 21), and early printing of Alice's Adventures (first published the preceding year). A handsomely bound set. Laid in is the printed leaflet "To all Child-Readers of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'", a letter of good wishes for Christmas and the New Year from Dodgson to his readers, dated 1871. As there is no specific mention of Through the Looking-Glass, Williams?Madan?Green?Crutch speculate that this little four-page leaflet could have been inserted in copies of the 1872 edition of Alice and also in copies of Through the Looking-Glass, published the same month as this. On 22 November 1871, Dodgson noted in his diary: "Heard from Menella Smedley, approving of the little Christmas address I had sent her in MS."

        The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County

      C. H. Webb, New York 1867 - TWAIN, Mark (Samuel L. Clemens) (1835-1910) The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County ¿The Most Famous Tale in California, if Not Western, History¿(Kurutz) Clemens got the idea for this tale as he heard it told around the pot belly stove in the general store in Angels Camp, California. Mark Twain the humorist had been "born" in the Territorial Enterprise during Clemens¿ tenure as editor of that paper in Virginia City. He submitted this work to his friend Artemus Ward for inclusion in a book of humorous stories Ward was then publishing in New York. Unfortunately, the submission arrived too late for inclusion. However, Clemens¿ friend, Charles Webb, arranged to publish the "Frog" as the lead story in a book of additional material by Clemens. Some of the stories were re-published in later years; some tales were not. Because of this being the earliest book of Twain¿s stories, the humor is somewhat uneven, giving us a glimpse of this giant of American literature as he was beginning to mature C. H. Webb, New York: 1867. Green cloth hardcover. First Edition, Second Issue of Twain¿s first book. 12 mo. 198 pages. Original green cloth, beveled boards, gilt- stamped cover and spine titles, gilt-stamped frog lower left corner of upper cover; expertly partially re-cased, spine ends restored. Housed in a green clamshell case, gilt-stamped spine title, rule and date. One of the most elusive first editions of Clemens, this book was issued in an edition of a little over 1000 copies. Twenty or so days later, another 550 copies were printed from the same stereotype plates. The only difference between the issues (as per BAL) is that the first issue has a single cream-colored leaf of advertisements inserted at the front, and individual letters of type at pages 66 and 198 are undamaged. This copy shows the battered type and no evidence of the advertising leaf and is therefore a second issue. The binding was issued in several different color cloth (without priority), and the gilt- stamped frog on the cover is in the lower left corner; some copies are known with the frog facing the top of the book, in the middle of the upper cover. Again, no priority is assigned Book previously owned by ¿Ella France Gage, Shasta Cal, The lady of Fountain House¿ written in pencil on rear pastedown. BAL 3310, Sloan: Volkmann Zamorano 80: Number 17 A Very Presentable Second Issue of Twain¿s First Book $7,500 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The Claverings was originally serialized in the Cornhill Magazine in sixteen installments from February 1866 to May 1867. The first (book) edition was published in America in 1866 according to the publication date, but many (including Sadlier) dispute the accuracy of the date: the first British edition is preferred.

        FIRST BOOK IN RUSSIAN ABOUT LINCOLN] Avraam Linkol'n i velikaya bor'ba mezhdu Severnymi i Yuzhnymi amerikanskimi shtatami v prodolzheniye 1861-1865 godov. Per. s nem. [i.e. Abraham Lincoln and The Great Struggle between the North and South during 1861-1865. Translated from German]

      tip. Kukol'-Yasnopol'skogo, St. Petersburg 1867 - [2], 474, IV pp., 1 port. 8vo. Contemporary quarter-leather binding with gilt-lettering and decoration on the spine, decorations on boards in blind. Very good. Rubbed, few spots and owner's ink stamp on the title-page. First edition. The book is translated from German the year after original publication. The first book about Linkoln in Russian came out in time of interesting parallels between America and Russia in 1860s. Avraam Linkoln was more influencial in Russian life than it seemed at first. Although they were very different Russia and USA maintained friendly relations during difficult for America 1860s. Lincoln personally asked Russian chancellor A. Gorchakov for help and Gorchakov sent him these words: "Your country was just born when Russians stand by your bedside. We don't need neither Northern nor Southern states. We'll be satisfied only with United Stated of America". Lincoln always said Russian and America were congenial. In 1863-1864 Russian navy visited San-Francisco(squadron of rear admiral A. Popov)and New York(squadron of rear admiral S. Lesovsky) to protect American ports if English or French forces attacked them. There is also an interesting parallel between two leaders living in the same time - Lincoln, emancipator of slaves, and Alexander II The Liberator of serfs. Both signed the most significant documents of the time with two years difference. Well-known that Uncle Tom's Cabin was almost a desk book for Lincoln. Its French copy was also in personal library of Tsar. They were corresponding, and though it's quite formal Alexander signed his letters "Your good friend" in Russian and French while Lincoln did the same in English.Both tragically were murdered by their opponents. In 1867 American delegation with Mark Twain among them met with Alexander II in Livadia and gave him a thanksgiving address which contained these words: "America owes much to Russia: first of all for her unwavering friendship in the years of her greatest need. We pray to God this friendship continues in future. We are confident America is grateful and will be grateful to Russia and her Sovereign". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Cours sur les maladies mentales

      1867 - 859 pages [Paris], 1867 [-1868], , 859 pages, , Il s'agit de notes prises par l'un des élèves de l'aliéniste Jules Falret (1824-1902) au cours des leçons cliniques données à l'École pratique ; soit 21 leçons données entre le 3 décembre 1867 et le 15 février 1868. Les LEÇONS DE FALRET N'ONT JAMAIS ÉTÉ PUBLIÉES. Selon le témoignage de l'un de ses élèves, l'historien de la psychiatrie René Semelaigne, Falret avait eu à coeur de publier ses cours : « le voeu [de Falret] ne devait pas se réaliser, et ce fut grand dommage, car les leçons auxquelles j'ai pu assister offraient le plus vif intérêt ; j'en avais recueilli plusieurs et regrette de les avoir égarées ». Jules-Philippe-Joseph Falret (1824-1902), reçu internes des hôpitaux de Paris en 1847, passa deux années à la Salpêtrière avant de rejoindre la maison de santé de Vanves créée par son père Jean-Pierre (1794-1870) et par Félix Voisin. En 1853, il soutint sa thèse inaugurale intitulée Recherches sur la folie paralytique et diverses paralysies générales. Dès 1854, il est admis au sein de la Société médico-psychologique, dont il deviendra le président en 1871. En 1867, il fut nommé médecin de Bicêtre, poste qu'il occupa jusqu'en 1884 pour succéder à Moreau de Tours à la Salpêtrière, qu'il quittera en 1897. A la mort de son père, il reprit la direction de la maison de Vanves en 1872 et s'adjoignit la collaboration de Jules Cotard jusqu'en 1889, puis de Léon-François Arnaud. En août 1889, lors du Congrès international de médecine tenu sous sa présidence, il fut décidé de la création d'un congrès annuel de médecine mentale, auquel il prit plusieurs fois part. La volonté de Jules Falret de réunir ses travaux épars sur les maladies mentales prit forme avec la publication, en 1890, de son ouvrage principal, les Études cliniques et des Aliénés et les asiles d'aliénés, assistance, législation et médecine légale , la plupart de ses écrits avaient paru dans les Archives générales et dans les Annales médico-psychologiques. Les leçons cliniques en elles-mêmes sont restées inédites. Dos légèrement passé, quelques épidermures. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Occasional woodcut illustrations, with one albumen portrait appearing in Vol. 3 (1860-61), Vol. 5 (1862-63), and Vol. 4 (1861-62), which contains an albumen portrait as well as a subminiature albumen portrait and a subminiature salted paper photograph of 3 views of a wooden box camera for making subminiature images in series. In Vol. 9 (1866-67) is an example of a photolithograph by the Osborne process. Patent Office copies, with neat ink stamps in each volume. The American Journal of Photography began publication in New York City as the American Journal of Photography and the Allied Arts and Sciences in 1852. The journal was founded by Charles A. Seely, professor of analytical chemistry at the New York Medical School, who had also worked at Scientific American before starting the journal. Henry Garbanati, Seely's partner in the photographic chemical business, and a fellow member of the American Photographical Society, joined him as publisher in 1859. Seely edited the journal until 1867.The biweekly journal had a wide subscribership beyond New York City and drew correspondence from readership of amateurs and commercial photographers across the United States. In 1859, the journal began publishing the minutes of the American Photographical Society; it shared the concerns of the society's founders, among them chemist and physician John W. Draper, his son, astronomer and photographer Henry C. Draper, Henry Hunt Snelling (publisher of The Photographic and Fine Arts Journal) commercial photographer Abraham Bogardus, astrophysicist and astronomer Lewis M. Rutherford (who first photographed the moon in 1858), Peter Cooper, founder of Cooper Institute, and Robert MacFarlane, editor of Scientific American, primarily with science and photographic chemistry. Articles explaining and evaluating photographic chemistry complete with chemical formulae fill the journal. The journal regularly reported on and evaluated photographic trade manuals published in the U.S. and abroad, with several excerpted or serialized in the journal. The journal relied on reprints and excepts from other publications, reprinting commentaries and lectures from British and French publications." Excerpted from the article by Andrea L Volpe in the Encyclopedia of 19th Century Photography. Publication history: 1852 - 1857 (first series); 1858 - 1867 (new series); absorbed by Humphrey's Journal of Photography at the end of 1867, which in turn ceased publication in 1870.

        [FIRST BOOK IN RUSSIAN ABOUT LINCOLN] Avraam Linkol'n i velikaya bor'ba mezhdu Severnymi i Yuzhnymi amerikanskimi shtatami v prodolzheniye 1861-1865 godov. Per. s nem. [i.e. Abraham Lincoln and The Great Struggle between the North and South during 1861-1865. Translated from German]

      St. Petersburg: tip. Kukol'-Yasnopol'skogo, 1867. [2], 474, IV pp., 1 port. 8vo. Contemporary quarter-leather binding with gilt-lettering and decoration on the spine, decorations on boards in blind. Very good. Rubbed, few spots and owner's ink stamp on the title-page.  First edition. The book is translated from German the year after original publication. The first book about Linkoln in Russian came out in time of interesting parallels between America and Russia in 1860s. Avraam Linkoln was more influencial in Russian life than it seemed at first. Although they were very different Russia and USA maintained friendly relations during difficult for America 1860s. Lincoln personally asked Russian chancellor A. Gorchakov for help and Gorchakov sent him these words: "Your country was just born when Russians stand by your bedside. We don't need neither Northern nor Southern states. We'll be satisfied only with United Stated of America". Lincoln always said Russian and America were congenial. In 1863-1864 Russian navy visited San-Francisco (squadron of rear admiral A. Popov) and New York (squadron of rear admiral S. Lesovsky) to protect American ports if English or French forces attacked them.  There is also an interesting parallel between two leaders living in the same time - Lincoln, emancipator of slaves, and Alexander II The Liberator of serfs. Both signed the most significant documents of the time with two years difference. Well-known that Uncle Tom's Cabin was almost a desk book for Lincoln. Its French copy was also in personal library of Tsar. They were corresponding, and though it's quite formal Alexander signed his letters "Your good friend" in Russian and French while Lincoln did the same in English. Both tragically were murdered by their opponents.  In 1867 American delegation with Mark Twain among them met with Alexander II in Livadia and gave him a thanksgiving address which contained these words: "America owes much to Russia: first of all for her unwavering friendship in the years of her greatest need. We pray to God this friendship continues in future. We are confident America is grateful and will be grateful to Russia and her Sovereign". .

      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.
