Hamerton, Philip Gilbert
London: Macmillan & Co., 1868. xxvi,354pp. Large, thick octavo. Half gilt calf and gilt decorated cloth, a.e.g. Illustrated with 35 etched plates. Binding rubbed, worn along edges and foretips, pp.145-152 present but signature bound out of sequence (after p.136), inner hinges somewhat crudely mended, moderate scattered foxing (including to a number of the plates), but a sound, if somewhat used, complete copy. First edition. An excellent association copy, inscribed on the front blank: "Thomas S. Noble June 16, 1871 With the Regards of his pupils." The recipient, American painter Thomas Satterwhite Noble (1835-1907), was invited in 1869 to become the first head of the McMicken School of Design in Cincinnati. This well-used gift from his students bears subsequent family gift inscriptions between generations of the Noble-Welleck family. Hamerton's treatise on etching was quite popular and appeared in several following editions in the UK and US. It is notable for its inclusion of original prints of etchings by a number of contemporary and historical artists. "He took pride in offering his readers an impression from an original Rembrandt plate ["Jacob and Laban"] printed by the Parisian etching specialist Auguste Delâtre. The author explains having to choose an obscure plate for the purpose, as the best- known subjects had by then been worn down to the point that their lines retained little ink and they printed 'ghosts'" - Metropolitan Museum Online Catalogue.

McDONALD, Thomas E.
New Jersey / New York / Michigan / Ohio, 1868. Unbound. Near Fine. A collection of 43 letters from 1868 written to and from Thomas E. McDonald to investors, salesmen, and his partner David D. Stelle. Most letters are near fine, some have age-toning on the edges of the letters. An archive of letters between the inventor Thomas E. McDonald, his partner David D. Stelle, and various investors and salesmen for their "Improved Harrowed Cultivator". McDonald and Stelle's "Improved Harrowed Cultivator" was patented to both of them in 1867. It combined the three stages of growing corn: planting seeds, harrowing the stalks, and cultivating the corn. The letters are written in 1868 around the New Jersey and New York area, mostly from New Brunswick, New Jersey. However a couple of letters are from Jackson, Michigan and Ohio. Most of the letters are from McDonald to investors hoping that they can help fund the production of the cultivator. He also writes to Nelson Dunham, an associate, about the difficulty in finding investor, "I think I would not create any unnecessary alarm, get posted from Washington first before much is said.... I will endeavor to push things as fast as possible". There are letters from various salesmen offering to pitch the cultivator and also including their input on how they'd change the machine if it were theirs. Particularly Johnathan Baker who wrote letter after letter about business meetings and working on the project with McDonald. Baker does not show up for the meeting about the cultivator at first, "Am sorry to be obtund to say they are not here yet, h … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mieusement, Seraphin-Mederic; Millot, Auguste
1868. Paris. Librairie generale des Beaux-Arts, A. Dupuis. Folio, (520 x 350 mm). 2 ff., 16 pp., 12ff., 21 albumen prints mounted on card with printed description. Contemporary red half shagreen over boards, spine with faux raised bands, lettered and tooled with fleurons in gilt, lower portion of spine with small loss of leather, else good. A fine copy, in it´s contemporary binding, preserving large margins, photographs in dark impressions, very clean and fresh.- First edition of this photographic record of the Chateau of Chambord, a masterpiece of architecture and design of the French Renaissance, and one of the earliest books to be illustrated solely with photographs; the photographs are by Seraphin-Mederic Mieusement, who c.1872 was appointed by theCommission des Monuments Historiquesto photograph France´s historic buildings and significant architecture, with the aim of recording the present state of French cultural patrimony, as well as for long-term restoration projects. Mieusement (1840 – 1905) was a French professional photographer; by the 1860´s he was already working with architects, mostly dedicated to the photography of historical buildings, monuments, and cultural patrimony. The Chateau of Chambord is a wonderful mix of French medieval forms with Renaissance structures, built by Francois I of France in the Loire Valley; the attribution of it´s design is still disputed. A rare book, we can only find copies at the Bibliotheque National de France, University of Glasgow, and British Library.

Lewis Carroll
1868. For sale is an exceptionally rare first edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll. Published by McMillan and Co. Ltd., London, 1868. Thirteenth Thousand. Collated as complete. With illustrations throughout by John Tenniel. Bound in it's publisher's original crimson cloth, with gilt decoration to the spine and boards. The endpapers are the original dark green-coated, and all page edges gilt. The binding was to the taste and design of the author, and it was designed as such to symbolise a holly wreath (released as it was, before Christmas). Externally it remains in very pleasing order, with the cloth, in the main, lovely and bright. Occasional rubbing in places, but this is to be expected with such a binding. Internally it has a couple of small ownership inscriptions (as shown in the images), but it is very, very clean and bright throughout. This volume comes very highly recommended indeed. Not only is this a most rare early impression of the first edition, it is bound as the author intended, and indeed such examples are seldom seen on the open market. [Attributes: First Edition]

Green, J[onathan]. H.
New York: Dick & Fitzgerald, Publishers, 1868. 114pp., including in-text illustrations, plus [42]pp. of advertisements. Original printed light green wrappers. Slight discoloration to wrappers, corners and spine ends moderately chipped. Internally quite clean. Very good. Jonathan H. Green, "the reformed gambler," is the most important figure in the early literature of American gambling. A famed gambler in his youth, he was known for his talents from Texas to Boston and all points in between. He abandoned gambling just shy of age thirty, and became an advocate against it, seeking to expose the tricks of the trade. Here he offers the inside scoop on games such as Dog Loo (played on the Red River), Whist, Thimbles (or cups), Poker, and Euchre, and on techniques such as palming, lapping, forcing cards, shuffling, cutting, dealing, stocking the pack, and cogging dice. Many other interesting subjects are also discussed, including horse racing, and nailing a card to a wall by a pistol shot. Green adds numerous tales of personal experience, and by offering detailed information on how to recognize gamblers' tricks, Green is also providing an advanced tutorial for the aspiring gambler or cheat. The copyright date on the verso of the titlepage appears to read 1850 (the first year of publication), but the worn type throughout, as well as the other titles advertised as available by Dick and Fitzgerald, indicates that this edition was likely produced around 1868. The original price, printed on the front wrapper, was thirty cents. In any edition, a rare and significant work. TOOLE-ST … [Click Below for Full Description]

Green, J[onathan]. H.
New York: Dick & Fitzgerald, Publishers, 1868. 114pp., including in-text illustrations, plus [42]pp. of advertisements. Original printed light green wrappers. Slight discoloration to wrappers, corners and spine ends moderately chipped. Internally quite clean. Very good. Jonathan H. Green, "the reformed gambler," is the most important figure in the early literature of American gambling. A famed gambler in his youth, he was known for his talents from Texas to Boston and all points in between. He abandoned gambling just shy of age thirty, and became an advocate against it, seeking to expose the tricks of the trade. Here he offers the inside scoop on games such as Dog Loo (played on the Red River), Whist, Thimbles (or cups), Poker, and Euchre, and on techniques such as palming, lapping, forcing cards, shuffling, cutting, dealing, stocking the pack, and cogging dice. Many other interesting subjects are also discussed, including horse racing, and nailing a card to a wall by a pistol shot. Green adds numerous tales of personal experience, and by offering detailed information on how to recognize gamblers' tricks, Green is also providing an advanced tutorial for the aspiring gambler or cheat. The copyright date on the verso of the titlepage appears to read 1850 (the first year of publication), but the worn type throughout, as well as the other titles advertised as available by Dick and Fitzgerald, indicates that this edition was likely produced around 1868. The original price, printed on the front wrapper, was thirty cents. In any edition, a rare and significant work. TOOLE-ST … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Sampson Low & Co, 1868. 1868 1ed Catlin Life Among INDIANS Wild West Native American Buffalo HuntingGeorge Catlin was an American traveler and artist known for his perspective and understanding of Native Americans and the American West.

Ed. Porter Thompson
Cincinnati: Caxton Publishing House, 1868. G+/1st ed./0. A pretty well preserved copy. Leather embossed covers are firmly attached with title in gilt on spine all present and still pretty bright along with several decorations. Hinges on both front and rear are starting, more so the back hinge. Hand sewn signatures are firmly secure and all pages are present. All illustrations are present-with the exception of the one on page 469--only half of that page is present--it's a page of engravings Colonels in the regiment. All the illustrations have foxing of varying amounts. Most of the tissue guards are present, some are not, and that has created some foxing to the text before or behind the illustration but the foxing does not obsure any print. A few other pages have a small amount of foxing started by a fingerprint. I found 2 pages missing a corner- pages 33 through 36. My favorite thing in this book is on page 363: a heart felt account of the career and command of Lieutenant-Colenel Clay who was captured and died in Marietta Georgia after having his arm amputated. In the margin in very small letter someone wrote, "I was with him--DJ" Overall an solid copy of this book, not Ex-Libray, that should supply many happy reading hours with this 931 page tome. And if I never sell it---that will be just fine. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Good+/None Included. Civil War Regimental/1st KY.

[Albion, NY: ca. 1868]. Broadside. 70 x 58 cm. Newspaper supplement, printed in nine columns, recording the speech of Hon. Noah Davis on the "Issues of the Day Ably Discussed. Reconstruction---Public Debt---Democratic Repudiation---Greenbacks and Bonds---Taxation---Expose of Democratic Misrepresentations---Gov. Church Under the Scalpel." Old fold lines, but an otherwise fresh copy. The Orleans American was a weekly newspaper published in Albion, New York, from 1832 - ca.1910. Davis, a Republican, was running for Congress to represent New York's 28th district, to replace Lewis Selye who was not running for reelection. Davis' speech addresses the negative effects of the Democratic party on the Reconstruction acts, and takes to task the Democratic nominee for President Horatio Seymour who was opposing Ulysses S. Grant in the 1868 elections. Following the text of his speech, there are a few other short articles, including "Secretary McCulloch's Reply to Mr. Delmar," "Democratic Falsehoods Exposed," "New York for Grant and Colfax," and a report on the public debt. Noah Davis (1818-1902) won his election to Congress in 1868, serving until July 1870. Pres. Grant appointed him U.S. District Attorney for the Southern New York, and he later served as a judge of the New York Supreme Court. He presided over the first and second trials of William M. "Boss" Tweed, sentencing him to 12 years for embezzlement and interfering with municipal elections. [see his biography in the DAB, Vol. V, p.140].

Moderate toning and light foxing to text, faint dampstaining to margins of a few leaves, library stamps and marks to title page and its verso. * Louisiana's 1868 constitution instituted the criteria necessary for readmission to the Union. It eradicated the Black Codes of 1865, removed property qualifications for holding office and disenfranchised former Confederates. Indicating support for the Fourteenth Amendment, which would be ratified on July 9, 1868, the constitution granted full citizenship to African-American men with equal civil and political rights. It also banned segregated public schools and segregated accommodations on public transportation. This constitution was the First in Louisiana's history to include a bill of rights. These rights were severely diminished in Louisiana's 1879 constitution, which followed the end of Reconstruction. Babbitt, Hand-List of Legislative Sessions and Session Laws 152.
