        RADICAL RULE: MILITARY OUTRAGE IN GEORGIA. ARREST OF COLUMBUS PRISONERS: WITH FACTS CONNECTED WITH THEIR IMPRISONMENT AND RELEASE

      Louisvilly, Ky. 1868.. 199pp. Gathered signatures, stitched. Minor edge wear. Erased ownership inscription at bottom of titlepage, light foxing. Very good. An early pro- Ku Klux Klan publication, consisting mostly of the "Proceedings of the Military Commission" for the trials of nine men on the charge of murder in the death of George W. Ashburn in the Spring of 1868. Ashburn was a Georgia judge who actively worked for civil rights of all citizens, especially African-Americans, and thus, he racked up a long list of local enemies. On the evening of March 30, 1868, after participating at a political rally with noted black minister and civil rights activist Henry McNeal Turner, Ashburn was gunned down by five masked men in "a negro brothel of the lowest order," becoming the first murder victim of the Ku Klux Klan in Georgia. The KKK had formed in Columbus only nine days earlier, after a visit from Nathan Bedford Forrest. As a result of the incident, the military governor, Gen. George Meade, declared martial law in Columbus, removing the mayor and ordering the immediate arrest of any potential suspects. The present work decries Meade's actions, the arbitrary nature of the numerous arrests for the crime, and "the subversion of the Constitution" the entire situation represented. According to the author here, no less a personage than Gen. Grant should be held ultimately responsible for this unfortunate situation, referring to him as "the man who abuses power throughout ten States of the Union" by allowing the military to act as a police force in the South. The text forlornly poses the question: "How long are the denizens of our Southern States to be made the victims of military misrule?" In a strange twist of political maneuvering, defenders of the KKK agreed to support passage of the 14th Amendment if Gen. Meade terminated the murder trials of Ashburn's killers. Meade agreed, and no one was ever prosecuted for Ashburn's murder. A scarce and early anti- Reconstructionist work by supporters of the Ku Klux Klan. DE RENNE II, p.705.

        Linda Tressel

      William Blackwood and Sons, 1868, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, First editionA Very Good copy the first edition, first printing, with Volume I and Volume II together in a single volume of three-quarter blue leather with complementary boards, spine lined and lettered in gilt, the boards lined in gilt, and the closed page block's upper edge gilded as well. Notably, this copy is distinct from the 1879 (or perhaps 1880 per Sadleir) two-volumes-in-one reissue of the first edition sheets noted by Sadleir, in that it is complete with both half-titles and with both title pages, with each title page declaring the novel to be "IN TWO VOLUMES". With respect to the two-volumes-in-one reissue of the remaining first edition sheets, Sadleir stated that "... no new single title page was printed for this issue" and that the original title pages were retained. However, every copy of the 1879 reissue that we have seen, and every such copy of which we have knowledge, has included a new title page that declares it to be a "Two Volumes in One" edition and, in each such copy, both half titles have been dropped. While this copy has been trimmed, it constitutes either the first issuance of the first edition sheets rebound together or the later reissue thereof in a format which we have not seen before and which Sadleir apparently never saw either. Linda Tressel was part of an experiment by Trollope to determine whether the public were buying his books because of his fame, or because of the quality of the writing. The first edition did not sell well. Trollope had tried the same experiment with Nina Balatka which also failed to sell well and was likewise then published in a remainder issue, although with Trollope's name on the title page. The experiment, however, had a major flaw. Trollope did his best work when focused on England, especially when focused on the English Gentry, and when writing longer works painted on a broad landscape. Linda Tressel, a relatively short novel for Trollope, was set in Nuremberg and dealt with persons far less than prosperous. Perhaps in consequence, the story lacks the flavor of Trollope's other works. The third volume in the planned series, The Golden Lion of Granpere, was published under Trollope's name (the publisher not wanting to put out yet a third book by Trollope that was virtually certain to fail). It, too, being set outside of England, failed to sell well. The two volume first edition of Linda Tressel is one of Trollope's rarer books. Sadleir speculates that not many copies were published and states that the book is extremely rare in its original first edition form and only a little less rare in the reissue format. A Very Good copy of a rare Trollope title.

        Mädchen vor einem Wiesenstück, das mit einer Baum- und Buschreihe begrenzt ist.

      - Bleistift, auf Velin, mitte und links unten bezeichnet und signiert „C est Charlotte, ma fillette P. Renouard". 26,5:35,2 cm. Der Reiz der spontan erfaßten Darstellung liegt in dem dynamisch-bewegten Strich, der sich an den Errungenschaften des Impressionismus orientiert. Nachdem Renouard als Dekorationsmaler tätig war, besuchte er seit 1868 die École des Beaux-arts in Paris im Atelier von I.A. Pils (1813/15-1875). Mit Pils arbeitete er an der Pariser Oper und führte dort 1875 Plafondmalereien aus. 1877 debütierte er im Pariser Salon. Auch Ausstellungsbeteiligungen in England an der Royal Society of Painters and Etchers und dem New English Art Club sind zu verzeichnen. 1894 organisierte der bekannte japanische Kunsthändler und Sammler Tadamasa Hayashi (1863-1906) in Paris eine Ausstellung der Drucke und Zeichnungen Renouards. Anläßlich der Weltausstellungen von 1889 und 1900 erhielt er Goldene Medaillen. Als Illustrator arbeitete er bei einigen der bekanntesten französischen Zeitschriften, so für die L Art, L Illustration oder La Vie Moderne. Bekannt sind auch seine Illustrationen zur „Dreyfus-Affäre". Auf einer Amerika-Reise entstanden zahlreiche Szenen aus dem politischen Leben. V. van Gogh (1853-1890) war einer seiner Bewunderer und sammelte seine Werke. Das Fine Art Museum of San Francisco besitzt mehrer Werke Renouards, auch das Tokio National Museum als Schenkung der Nachfahren Hayashis, das auch 2006 in ihren Räumen zum 100. Todestag Hayashis eine Ausstellung Renouards organisierte.

        Monthly Reports of Department of Agriculture for the Year 1867

      Washington: Government Printing Office, 1868. First Edition. 397 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. PRESENTATION BINDING of full green morocco, elaborate gilt floral framework on upper and lower covers, the former bearing the name "U.S. Grant" blocked in gold, t.e.g., gilt inner dentelles, slight wear to extremities, with bookplate, title perforation, card pocket, due date slip and withdrawl stamp of Stanford University Library with neat shelf mark on spine, else fine. Presentation Copy to U.S. Grant A handsome volume, probably prepared for Grant as President, as he was elected in 1868, assuming office the following year, when America was still largely an agrarian nation and such a work would have had a far greater significance than would be the case today. (Grant's own ante-bellum farming efforts were distinctly unsuccessful.).

        Small Archive Documenting the Career of Whale Ship Helen Mar in the Acrtic, 1866 - 1883

      This collection contains billheads, sight drafts, repair and provisioning bills, telegrams regarding shipments of oil and bone, lists of sails, accounts of bone sold, and two interesting letters. The first letter, four pages, about 400 words, dated October 23, 1868, relates in some detail the so called (until 1906) "Great San Francisco Earthqueke" which had taken place just two days earlier. It is addressed to Swift & Allen, agents for the "Helen Mar," but is written by Abraham Pierce, who was not captain of the ship at that time. "The Custom House is so badly shattered (although several tons of iron were used in tying it up after the shock of 65) that it is abandoned... Captain Herendeen stays on board the ship most of the time. "Shocks" are not to his liking. It makes no difference in his case, but with some it would be well if SOMETHING would keep them on board." The second letter, written from Hilo by Captain William H. Koon in April 1872, also to Swift & Allen, relates events that occurred when the ship was fishing off the South American Coast (after returning from a season in the Arctic). This letter, also about 400 words, is interesting because it shows the ship carrying passengers, delivering freight, and trying to sell off their provisions - all of which seem to be unusual activites for a whale ship.

        He Knew He Was Right [bound from the Original 32 Weekly Parts -- with Wrappers and Advertisements]

      Virtue & Co.; Strahan and Company, 1868, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, First editionA Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, being THE ORIGINAL 32 WEEKLY PARTS rebound with advertisements in 3/4 blue leather with coordinated blue cloth, top edge of the closed page blocks gilded (moderate rubbing to the spine ends and board corners, shelf rubbing to the bottom edge of each board; pages, wrappers, and advertisements trimmed at the edges for rebinding, bound without tissue guards). This set is bound with all of the front and rear wrappers and the set contains the advertisements as follows: Volume I, which contains the first sixteen Parts, has those advertisements Sadleir notes as required for a "perfect set"; Volume II, which contains the final sixteen Parts, has those advertisements required for a "perfect set" except as follows: Part 22 contains six pages of front advertisements rather than the four pages specified by Sadleir; Part 25 lacks the front advertisements, and Part 30 contains lacks the inset slip. (The front wrappers of Parts 19, 23, 30, and 32 are clipped at the upper right corner with loss of the dates -- but are otherwise proper, a portion of the first page of advertisements of Part 19 has been torn away, and a piece of tape has been added to the leading edge the front wrapper's verso in Part 1. Within, the leaves and illustrations are in nice, rather clean, condition with tape repairs adjacent to the gutter between pages 344/345 and 368/369.) "He Knew He Was Right" was first published in these 32 Weekly Parts from October 17, 1868 to May 22, 1869 (as well as in 8 Monthly Parts from November, 1868). James Virtue, the publisher who began issuance of the Parts, went bankrupt during the course of their production and the last three Weekly Parts were issued by Strahan, but with the wrappers still showing Virtue as the Publisher. The book edition was not published until May, 1869 and then was published with the same illustrations as were found in the Parts issue but without the Parts' cover illustration of the principal characters of the novel casually grouped. The book centers around Louis Trevelyan and his bride Emily who, after their marriage is forbidden to receive any visits from her father's old friend Colonel Osborne, a man Trevelyan considers to be a philanderer. As Osborne persists in his attentions to Emily, Trevelyan grows madly jealous and descends into madness, convinced that his wife is not being faithful to him. In consequence of his behavior and deranged mental state, Emily flees the house with the couple's young son, but, after careful planning, Trevelyan kidnaps the child and flees with him to Italy, where he, Trevelyan, grows completely mad. It is from there that Trollope brings the tale to a resolution. A Very Good copy bound from the ORIGINAL PARTS WITH ADVERTISEMENTS, which Original Parts are not at all common to the market. SCARCE.

        Linda Tressel. A Tale. By the Author of "Nina Balatka, the Story of a Maiden of Prague." First Issued in America in Littell's Living Age

      Littell & Gay, n.d. [1868], No Binding, Book Condition: Near Fine, First American editionThe First American edition of this anonymously-published novel --and one of the scarcest of all of Trollope's American first editions. Linda is a girl of Nuremberg living with her religious fanatic of an aunt who tries to marry Linda to an old coot who covets Linda's property; instead, Linda runs away with a young political fanatic who is wanted by the police. In the UK, the tale first appeared serially in Blackwood's Magazine from October, 1867 to June, 1868, and then was published by Blackwood in two volumes. In America, Littell & Gay pirated the tale from the UK serialization, publishing it irregularly in their Tales of the Living Age from October, 1867 to June, 1868, after which they published it in book form (wrappers only) in early June, 1868, priced at 38 cents. Like Nina Balatka, which Blackwood published in the prior year, the UK first edition of Linda Tressell ranks in the scarcest quarter of Trollope UK first editions. This is an extraordinarily difficult, perhaps nearly impossible-to-find on the market, first American edition, considerably scarcer even than the first UK edition and the only US first edition we have seen in 35 years of diligent searching for Trollope's works. Noted Trollope collector Carroll Wilson spent decades trying to find this US edition and finally concluded that it simply did not exist. Walter Smith, in his bibliography of Trollope's American editions, notes that "No copy in its original binding has been found" and that "All copies examined were rebound and were so worn, fragile and loose that an accurate determination about the makeup of the edition was not possible." (Smith was able to locate a copy of Littell & Gay's Nina Balatka in wrappers, so one can view the Smith bibliography's illustration of it to get an idea of what Linda Tressell's wrapper must have looked like.) Smith also notes that one copy of Linda Tressell, found at the New York Public Library, has two pages of ads paginated 5 and 6 -- exactly like this copy. Once bound without the wrappers, this copy is now free of the binding. The three stab-holes, from its original binding in wrappers and noted by Smith, are visible on each page. The title page carries both the Mercantile Library stamp and that library's "SOLD" stamp as well as "Anthony Trollope" written in pencil and the shadow of some numbers once written on that page. The double-columned leaves are in fine condition and, as noted above, the advertisement leaf is present. Given the difficulty that Wilson had in his failed search for a copy, and the fragile state of the copies located by the diligent bibliographer Walter Smith, we believe this to be one of the Rarest of all of Trollope's American first editions and likely in better condition that the other few copies known to exist. A REMARKABLE AND COLLECTION-DISTINGUISHING COPY. RARE INDEED.

        The Moonstone [Signed]

      Harper & Brothers, 1868, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, First editionA Very Good copy of the first American edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original brown cloth with the spine lettered and decorated in gilt (spine ends worn, board corners and board bottoms rubbed through, some rubbing through to the top edge of each board), SIGNED, PLACED, AND DATED BY WILKIE COLLINS on the front free endpaper as follows "Wilkie Collins / New York / 1873." Wilkie Collins' Masterpiece, his most important novel, and, along with "The Woman in White", his most famous work, the story centers on an English woman, Rachel Verinder, and the diamond that she inherits on her eighteenth birthday.Known as the Tippoo diamond and sacred to the Hindus as the centerpiece in their idol of the god of the Moon, the gem had been stolen by John Herncastle who, while fighting for the British Army in India in 1799, killed the three Brahmins guarding the diamond, stole it, and took it back to his native England. On his death, Herncastle left the diamond to Rachel, stipulating that it be given to her on her eighteenth birthday. Thus, decades after its theft, Rachel receives the diamond and wears it at her birthday celebration. In the morning, the diamond is found to be missing. The man Rachel loves, and who loves Rachel in return, was seen taking the diamond, is accused of having stolen it, and seeks to prove his innocence. The tale was serialized in 32 installments by Charles Dickens in his "All the Year Round" magazine from January 4 to August 8, 1868. Both Tinsley Brothers and Harper published the complete novel in book form in July, 1868, shortly before its serialization was completed. (No priority between the UK first and the US first has been established.) An extraordinarily important work, "The Moonstone" has been declared by many to be the first detective novel ever published. While some argue that the title should go to "The Notting Hill Mystery", published pseudonymously in serial form in 1862 and in book form in 1865, T. S. Eliot declared "The Moonstone" to be "the first, the longest, and the best of modern English detective novels in a genre invented by Collins and not by Poe", and described it as being "brilliant without being infallible". Dorothy Sayers called it "probably the very finest detective story ever written" and, in agreement with both Eliot and Sayers, GK Chesterton called it "probably the best detective tale in the world". The book provided the basis for the 1934 critically-acclaimed movie of the same name starring David Manners, Charles Irwin, and Phyllis Barry. Signed copies of the book are absolute hen's teeth. A Very Good copy of one of the most important novels ever published, SIGNED, PLACED, AND DATED BY WILKIE COLLINS AND RARE THUS.

Trow, [1868]. |~||~||~||~| An unusual copy of this New York City business directory having two metal rings riveted on the front and back covers creating what is in essence a nineteenth-century American chain binding. Most likely the directory was chained to a hotel table for the use of guests visiting the city. Interleaved with the alphabetical list of thousands of businesses via fantastic ads printed on yellow and blue paper. Among the ads is one for "Doty & McFarlan, Manufactures of Fancy Papers" printed in gold on a shiny purple moiré patterned sheet of paper. Bound at the end are The New York City Register and Commercial Register. The pagination is a bit erratic, but the work appears to be complete. Covers a bit rubbed, internally a fine copy.

        Giants and Dwarfs

      London: Richard Bentley. 1868, 1868. First edition. 8vo. 472pp. Handsomely bound in recent half brown calf over marbled boards with red title label. Edges speckled red. Plain endpapers. Internally clean, minor toning to pages, some slight soiling to title page. Dusty top edge. Shows very well. A fascinating and extremely scarce collection of accounts dealing with famous and infamous dwarfs and giants both mythical; Gogmagog and Polyphemus both make significant guest appearances; there is a chapter entitled "Bible Dwarfs", a section dealing with the Nephilim (the biblical hybrid giants, not the dodgy 80's goth band in the cowboy hats), a fascinating number of now mostly forgotten dwarf or giant based legends and some eyewitness accounts of historical dwarfs and giants. The book ends with a section entitled "Sundry Dwarfs" , which seems a trifle dismissive. Naturally it betrays very little understanding for the variety of medical, congenital and physical reasons that cause people to have to live and indeed thrive under these conditions, although there is a degree of sympathy, in the main however the focus is on building a kind of archive of historical references, folklore and accounts of the daily lives of the more famous figures in the lore; and as such it is both fascinating, compelling and indeed useful.

        Alpenlandschaft mit Gewässer 1868.

      1868. Aquarell über Bleistift, auf bräunlichem Velin, recht unten signiert und datiert "J. Höger. 2. April 1860. 18,9:15,9 cm. Insgesamt leicht vergilbt und etwas fleckig. Ein fein abgestimmtes Kolorit und eine sorgfältige zeichnerische Sicherheit zeichnen dieses Aquarell aus.. Nachdem der österreichische Landschaftsmaler Höger eine Ausbildung zum Radierer und Lithographen absolvierte hatte, studierte er an der Wiener Akademie bei J. Mössmer (1780-1945) und J. Rebell (1787-1828). Impulse nahm er vor allem von J.C. Erhard (1795-1822) und J.A. Klein /1792-1975) auf. Nach seiner Ausbildung schloß er sich J. Gauermann (1773-1843), dessen Tochter er heiratete, und dessen Söhnen Carl (1804-1829) und Friedrich (1807-1862) an. Mit Carl unternahm er Studienausflüge in die Alpen, mit Friedrich begleitete er 1837 zusammen mit Th. Ender Erzherzog Johann nach Südrussland und in den Orient, und unternahm 1838 eine Reise nach Venedig. 1849-1851 war er Professor an der Elementarschule der Wiener Akademie. Seine Werke besitzen das Nationalmuseum Nürnberg, das Museum Georg Schäfer Schweinfurt, das Lichtensteinmuseum Wien und das Niederösterreichische Landesmuseum St. Pölten. Charakteristisch für Höger war das reine Aquarell, in dem Lichtakzente durch Aussparung der Fläche und nicht durch Deckweißhöhung bewirkt wurden, wie auch das vorliegende Blatt zeigt.

        The Grammar of Ornament

      Bernard Quaritch, 15 Piccadilly 1868 - Fine Moroccan burgundy leather binding. All edges gilt. Beautiful binding, pleasing to the eye and touch. Gilt ruled, with 6 raised bands. Gilt dentelle. Clean, unmarked pages. Chromolithographic plates. 157 pages illustrations, One hundred and twelve plates. 35 cm. A tight copy. Hand sewn. Owen Jones was a London-born architect and designer of Welsh descent. A versatile architect and designer, he was also one of the most influential design theorists of the nineteenth century. He helped pioneer modern color theory, and his theories on flat patterning and ornament still resonate with contemporary designers today. The first 19 chapters presented key examples of ornament from a number of sources which were diverse both historically and geographically - notably examining the Middle East in the chapters on Arabian, Turkish, Moresque (Alhambra) and Persian ornament. The final chapter, titled "Leaves and Flowers from Nature" acknowledged that "in the best periods of art, all ornament was based upon an observation of the principles which regulate the arrangement of form in nature" and that "true art consists of idealising, and not copying, the forms of nature". Christopher Dresser, Owen Jones' most well-known protege, contributed one of the plates in this final chapter, and he was concurrently presenting theories on natural-form ornament in his famous botanical lectures at the Government School of Design in the mid-1850s. In The Grammar of Ornament, Jones gathered together these samples of ornament as the best examples of decoration in an attempt to encourage designers to follow his lead in examining the underlying principles contained within the broad history of ornament and polychromy. The Grammar was hugely influential in design schools in the latter half of the nineteenth century, and is still in print today, maintaining its relevance as a source of inspiration for contemporary designers. Among those who contributed to the volume were J.B.Waring, J.O.Westwood, C.Dresser and M.Digby Wyatt. Included are examples and discussion of the ornament of American Indian tribes, Egyptian ornament, Assyrian and Persian, Greek, Pompeian, Roman, Byzantine, Arabian, Turkish, Persian, Indian, Hindoo, Chinese, Celtic, Mediaeval, Renaissance, Elizabethan, and Italian ornament, Moresque ornament from the Alhambra, and leaves and flowers from nature. "Jones' forte was interior decoration. He insisted strongly on the decorative importance of colour, declaring that "form without colour is like a body without a soul". He had much fertility of invention, and by his example and by the publication of his Grammar of Ornament and other writings exercised a considerable influence on the designs of English wall-paper, carpets, and furniture."

Publisher's green blind-stamped cloth, title gilt-stamped to spine and front cover, t.e.g. Light wear to covers, some bubbling to cloth on rear cover, binding shaken with 6 plates and some text leaves loose with damage to fore-edge, pp. 149-150 torn. In a custom green cloth clamshell box. Jersey Shore A rare photographic portrait of the seaside town of Long Branch, New Jersey, published at the height of the town's popularity as a resort for the rich and powerful. Once called the Hollywood of the East for its thriving theater scene, Long Branch was also a favored vacation spot for seven United States Presidents - including Garfield, who was sent here after being shot in the hopes that the fresh air would help his recovery. The photographs - which capture the homes, businesses, and hotels of Long Branch - are, we assume, by the Pach Brothers, whose Long Branch gallery is shown in the final plate. The author, J.H. Schenck, also published a guide book to Long Branch in the same year as this album. Only one other copy (also incomplete) has sold at auction in the last 30 years.
