        Autograph Letter, signed ("J. A. Garfield"), as Congressman from Ohio, to J.A. Cowing of New York, regarding Garfield's speech on currency and finance

      Washington. DC, 20 june, 1868 - "- I am gratified with your approval of the general spirit and purpose of my speech - and can see much reason to hope that the attention to the subject, will, before long, bring the nation to sensible and honest conclusions on finance - The statement in my speech that to double the currency would double prices, is quite likely too broad to be practically true - You will observe that I was developing the general principle which lies at the foundation of currency - and which is likely to be ___ (?) in its application by many incidental causes. I was careful to guard my language thus: '- BUSINESS REMAINING THE SAME [underlined], doubling the currency will result in doubling prices.' As a matter of fact, the supposed increase of currency would increase speculative business - and somewhat increase the demand for currency, so that the increase of prices would not be quite 100 per cent -" 4to. 2 pp., on folded sheet of engraved letterhead of Fortieth Congress, with vignette of the U.S. Congress. With 2 engraved portraits of President Garfield. Old folds, slightly wrinkled, splitting along fold, in tan morocco-backed clam shell box

        High Water in the Mississippi

      New York: Currier & Ives, 1868. Hand-coloured lithograph by James Merrit Ives after Fanny Palmer. 21 1/4 x 30 1/2 inches. A poignant image, demonstrating the triumph of the human spirit. In the foreground, uprooted trees bob in the current, using a roof as a raft two men pole themselves and nine others to safety, one of their companions holds tight to reins of a mule swimming beside the roof, whilst two others rescue furniture and a barrel. In the mid-ground: a large white-painted house with second-floor balconies front and back, and a smaller cook-house off to the right side. Two men in a row boat approach the back of the house, a lady stands on the balcony speaking to the men; on the widow's walk on the roof a man and a woman stand: the man waves a handkerchief to the twin-stack riverboat. The riverboat, "Stonewall Jackson" is travelling at speed: the near-side paddle creates a substantial wake, the flags fly in the stiff breeze and the smoke from the stacks steams backwards: passengers line the rails attracted by the human drama they are passing. The overall impression is of a crisis that is being survived and dealt with by man's ingenuity, whilst life continues. Conningham 2819; Gale 3057

        Travels in the Interior of South Africa, Comprising Fifteen Years' Hunting and Trading. With Journeys Across the Continent from Natal to Walvish Bay, and Visits to Lake Ngami and the Victoria Falls

      London: Bell & Daldy, 1868. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Two-volume set. xiii (4), 454, (2); viii, (4), 480pp. With 2 frontispieces, 25 woodcut illustrations and 2 folding maps. Bound by John Bumpus, Oxford. Chapman (b. 1831 in Cape Town) traveled extensively in the interior of southern Africa as a trader, hunter, and explorer. In 1853, he reached the Zambezi and narrowly missed discovering Victoria Falls before David Livingstone. This work describes his second expedition to the Zambezi (1860-64), during which he and fellow explorer and artist Thomas Baines hoped to conduct a full examination of the middle and lower reaches of the river to assess its navigability and viability as a commercial route. They traveled from Cape Town to Walvis Bay by sea, then by ox-wagon across the Kalahari, taking 16 months to reach the Zambezi . Thomas Baines spent several days sketching and painting Victoria Falls, providing the first images of the natural wonder to reach the outside world. Although the expedition was hindered by illness and failed to reach the river's mouth, it was successful in gathering information about previously little-known terrain-in part because it was one of the first expeditions to carry a stereoscopic camera. More than 140 of Chapman's photographic studies of the landscape and wildlife of what is now Namibia were shown at the 1867 World Exposition in Paris. Mendelssohn p. 321 says that "few South African books give better descriptions of the sport of the country and the habits and customs of the native races inhabiting the vast areas traversed. See also Czech, p. 61. Leather scuffed at the extremities. One map backed in linen, the other torn and reparied along a fold, but complete and easily repaired. Overall quite clean and sound.

His book, "Travels in East Indian Archepelago" was published in 1869. The preface begin by saying; "The object of my voyage to Amboina was simply to re-collect the shells figured in Rumphiuss&#39;s " Rari-teit Kamer," and the idea of writing a volume of travels was not seriously entertained until I arrived at Batavia, and, instead of being forbidden by the Dutch Government to proceed to the Spice Islands, as some of my warmest friends feared, I was honored by His Excellency, the Governor-General of " the Netherlands India." An enlightening and eye-opening volume, "Travels in the East Indian Archipeligo" was Bickmores best known work. Please feel free to view our photographs of this lovely volume. Ships daily.

        Anne Hereford

      1868. first edition. Extremely Rare in the Original ClothWOOD, Mrs. Henry. Anne Hereford. A Novel. In Three Volumes. London: Tinsley Brothers, 1868.First edition. Three octavo volumes (7 1/2 x 4 7/8 in; 190 x 125 mm). [6], 295, [1, printer&#146;s imprint]; [6], 319, [1, printer&#146;s imprint]; [6], [7]-316, [1, advertisement for Mrs. Henry Wood&#146;s Magazine &#147;The Argosy&#148;], [1, blank] pp.Original violet vertically-ribbed moiré cloth with covers decoratively stamped in blind and spines decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt. Original cream-colored endpapers. Spines faded (as was Sadleir&#146;s copy). A bit of mild dampstaining to endpapers. Spine with slight cock. Otherwise, an excellent copy of this extremely scarce title. No. 1 in Sadleir&#146;s list of &#147;Comparative Scarcities,&#148; with The Shadow of Ashlydat, Orville College, and Within the Maze, and ahead of East Lynne, at No. 2. Only one copy has sold at auction in the last thirty years. Housed together in a quarter purple morocco clamshell case.Anne Hereford, like most of Mrs. Henry Wood&#39;s novels, was first published in monthly installments. It appeared throughout 1868 in the magazine Argosy which was owned and edited by Mrs. Henry Wood and her son Charles. It is unusual among Mrs Wood&#39;s novels in that it is written throughout in the first person. Its features include a young orphan, a gloomy mansion, deaths&#133;violent and natural, and a missing will, mistaken identities and family loyalties.Mrs. Henry Wood&#39;s works were incredibly popular in their time. A contemporary survey of the reading habits of the "lower and servant classes" showed that a majority of those surveyed who read any novels at all read hers exclusively; certainly, if they were looking for sensationalism and melodrama, she was the author to provide it.Mrs. Henry Wood (Ellen, 1814-1887) "suffered from curvature of her spine. In 1836 she married Henry Wood a prominent banker who later lost his money. Most of the next twenty years were spent abroad&#133;from where she began contributing immensely popular short stories to Bentley&#39;s Miscellany and the New Monthly Magazine. Her first financial success was Danesbury House, a comparatively serious novel which won a prize from the Scottish Temperance League. East Lynne (1861), her second novel, was an enormous popular success&#133; Over thirty novels followed&#133;In spite of her precarious health, Ellen Wood supported her family for many years by her writing " (Feminist Companion to Literature in English). "Her ingenious plots about murders, thefts, and forgeries, her numerous court scenes and well-planted clues, make her&#133;one of the forerunners of the modern detective story. The sensational, and occasionally supernatural, events in her novels are presented in solidly detailed settings of middle-class country-town communities of doctors and lawyers, bankers and manufacturers&#148; (The Oxford Companion to English Literature). "She was&#133;an author who took risks, experimenting with scandalous plots, dark characters, and the hidden realities of Victorian life that many in her society were reluctant to acknowledge" (Bloom, Nineteenth Century British Women Writers, p. 412).Aged eleven, the orphaned, shy, Anne Hereford arrives at a lonely country house to stay with her Aunt. The Gothic ambience and the Aunt&#39;s sinister, avaricious husband Edwin Barley set the scene for murder and more. The supposed murderer, a favorite of the Aunt disappears, the Aunt dies in suspicious circumstances, and her last minute will, witnessed by Anne, who is also the sole benefactor is not to be found. After a grim, private school education, followed by a somewhat better finishing school experience in France, she becomes in turn a governess then companion, eventually returning to England to live in the Chandos household&#151;another lonely, Gothic house, full of shadows, mystery and ghosts. To make matters worse the sinister Edwin Darley turns up out of the blue as a new tenant of the Chandos estate. An excellent example of Victorian melodrama, of which Mrs. Wood was a prime exponent.Sadleir 3326. Wolff 7265.

Fine folding chromolithographed frontispiece, and 3 folding tinted lithographed panoramas, 27 full-page tinted lithographed plates (some occasionally heavy spotting throughout). Original purple bevelled cloth, gilt (extremities a little worn). Provenance: Frank T. Siebert, his sale, Sotheby&#39;s New York, Oct 28, 1999, lot 742. First edition. These splendid images of Montana were the earliest to show the territory in all its natural glory, in the years when few settlers had staked claims so far west. Long before Montana became a state in 1889, Mathews traveled to the vast and untamed territory to bring pictures of its wild beauty back east. The natural monuments, Mathews realized, needed little embellishment to convey the absolute and unrivaled grandeur of Montana scenery, and he portrayed them with remarkable faith and realism. .

        A BOOK OF SCOTISH PASQUILS, 1568-1715

      Edinburgh: William Paterson, 1868. ONE OF THREE COPIES ON VELLUM (there were a limited, but unspecified, number of copies also printed on paper). Hardcover. Very Thick Volume of Early Scottish Lampoons,Bound by Grieve, One of Just Three on Vellum. 210 x 130 mm (8 1/4 x 5 1/8"). xxviii, 438 pp. ONE OF THREE COPIES ON VELLUM (there were a limited, but unspecified, number of copies also printed on paper). HANDSOME CONTEMPORARY CRIMSON MOROCCO, ATTRACTIVELY GILT, BY ANDREW GRIEVE (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers gilt with multiple plain and decorative rules enclosing a delicate dentelle frame, a large and intricate fleuron at the center of each cover, spine gilt in double-ruled compartments with complex fleuron centerpiece and scrolling floral cornerpieces, turn-ins decorated with plain and decorative gilt rules, patterned burgundy and gold silk endleaves, top edge gilt. In a (slightly worn) matching morocco-lipped slipcase. With woodcut title page illustration, numerous decorative tailpieces, and occasional woodcut vignettes in the text. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of H. D. Colvill-Scott; front free endleaf with armorial bookplate of Clarence S. Bemens. Tiny dark spot on spine, corners with just a hint of rubbing, a couple of leaves with slightly rumpled fore edge, but still A FINE COPY, the text clean, smooth, and bright, and the binding unusually lustrous and with virtually no wear. This is an attractively printed and beautifully bound copy of pasquils collected by Scottish antiquary James Mainment (1793-1879). The pasquil, or pasquinade, is an anonymous lampoon of a person or institution, and those here are directed at various pillars of Scottish society, including the clergy, politicians, and the nobility. Bound by Scottish craftsman Andrew Grieve--the teacher of Charles McLeish, who worked 16 years for the exacting Cobden-Sanderson as finisher at the Doves Bindery--our luxurious copy is the only one recorded by ABPC since at least 1975. A pencilled note on the fron flyleaf indicates this was one of just three copies printed on vellum. It was in the library of noted collectors Harry and Virginia Walton (their sale at Bloomsbury, 14 May 2009).

        206 ORIGINAL PAINTINGS

      19. Very Good. [DESIGNS FOR SATSUMA WARE] KINKOZAN. 206 ORIGINAL PAINTINGS. A large portfolio of manuscript images, some 205 approximately 29 x 19.5 cm., and one large folded image about twice that size that is stamped with the seal of the important Kyoto ceramic house Kinkozan. Skillfully done throughout in opaque watercolor, white gofun, metallic and mineral pigments, the drawings capture the complex and intricate patterns of 19th century Kyoto Satsuma ware as designed by perhaps its finest interpreter. Kinkozan Sobei VII (1868-1927) and his studio of some 250 potters, who were the largest producers of Satsuma style wares in Meiji Japan, and among the most skilled. This wonderful group of images illustrates the three dimensional quality of the designs where necessary as they wrap around the pot. They are as lavishly and meticulously achieved as the pots themselves. Many of the drawings have(stock?) numbers as well. This group of drawings could form the basis of an important work of exploration of Kinkozan and the Kyoto potters in the late 19th century. Are there examples of these wonderful designs existing in museums and collections around the world? Were these simply a record of designs as they were produced or were they a "sample book" for orders? In very good condition, the drawings are enclosed in a folding clasped chitsu case.

        Travels in the Interior of South Africa, Comprising Fifteen Years&#39; Hunting and Trading. With Journeys Across the Continent from Natal to Walvish Bay, and Visits to Lake Ngami and the Victoria Falls

      London: Bell & Daldy, 1868. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Two-volume set. xiii (4), 454, (2); viii, (4), 480pp. With 2 frontispieces, 25 woodcut illustrations and 2 folding maps. Bound by John Bumpus, Oxford. Chapman (b. 1831 in Cape Town) traveled extensively in the interior of southern Africa as a trader, hunter, and explorer. In 1853, he reached the Zambezi and narrowly missed discovering Victoria Falls before David Livingstone. This work describes his second expedition to the Zambezi (1860-64), during which he and fellow explorer and artist Thomas Baines hoped to conduct a full examination of the middle and lower reaches of the river to assess its navigability and viability as a commercial route. They traveled from Cape Town to Walvis Bay by sea, then by ox-wagon across the Kalahari, taking 16 months to reach the Zambezi . Thomas Baines spent several days sketching and painting Victoria Falls, providing the first images of the natural wonder to reach the outside world. Although the expedition was hindered by illness and failed to reach the river&#39;s mouth, it was successful in gathering information about previously little-known terrain-in part because it was one of the first expeditions to carry a stereoscopic camera. More than 140 of Chapman&#39;s photographic studies of the landscape and wildlife of what is now Namibia were shown at the 1867 World Exposition in Paris. Mendelssohn p. 321 says that "few South African books give better descriptions of the sport of the country and the habits and customs of the native races inhabiting the vast areas traversed. See also Czech, p. 61. Leather scuffed at the extremities. One map backed in linen, the other torn and reparied along a fold, but complete and easily repaired. Overall quite clean and sound.

        Flore illustrée de Nice et des Alpes-Maritimes.

      Iconographie des Orchidées. Nice, Caisson et Mignon, 1868. Folio (356 x 270mm). pp. (8), 83, (3), with 63 handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary calf, gilt ornamented spine, sides with gilt borders and blind pressed cornerpieces, gilt edges. The work is dedicated to the Italian botanist Philippe Parlatore. The present copy is an interesting association copy as it was presented by Parlatore to lady Berta Sommier. The fine plates were drawn by Barla, who was director of the natural history museum at Nice. He was a man of independent means and dedicated himself to investigate the fungi and orchids of the South of France. This work on the orchids of the South of France is much rarer than the author's works on fungi and was published in a small edition only. "Cette végétation exceptionelle, doit évidemment sa richesse et sa variété à la configuration topographique, toute particulière, du bassin des Alpes-Maritimes. Dans ce pays favorisé par la nature, croissent la plupart des orchidées de France, d'Italie, d'Allemange, etc." (From the Introduction). Nissen BBI, 78; Stafleu & Cowan Suppl. I, 20.221.
