Lieutenant Colonel Viktor Ernst Rudolph von Scheliha, a Prussian, served as Chief of Staff to General Buckner and acted also later as Chief Engineer of the Department of the Gulf, at Mobile. An English Officer, Captain Fitzgerald Ross, met him there in February 1864: “The Colonel is engaged in erecting a new line of forts round Mobile, which are perfect models of strength and judicious arrangements. They are built entirely of sand, with revetments of turf along. The turf on the embankments is fastened down to the sand by slips of the Cherokee rose,an exceedingly prickly shrub, which when grown will become a very disagreeable obstacle to a storming party. Mobile will soon be one of the mostly strongly fortified places in the world.” (See: Mahin: “The Blessed Place of Freedom: Europeans in Civil War America” 2002; Lonn: “Foreigners in the Confederacy” 1940, reprinted 2002; Tidwell: “Come Retribution: The Confederate Secret Service and the Assassination of Lincoln” 2001). In his heart, Scheliha remained a Prussian: “Treatise on Coast-Defence” is humbly dedicated to Prince Adelbert of Prussia.

        L?Alliance de la democratie socialiste et l?Association Internationale des Travailleurs. Rapport et documents publiés par ordre du Congres international de La Haye.

      EA.- Nach dem Austritt der Bakunin-Fraktion aus der ?Friedens- und Freiheitsliga? am Ende des zweiten Liga-Kongresses im September 1868 in Bern, bildete diese die ?Internationale Allianz der sozialistischen Demokratie?, die ?nichts anderes als eine öffentliche Erscheinung der von Bakunin längst (1864) gegründeten geheimen ?Fraternité internationale? [war]? (Brupbacher 1922, S. 48). - Der Band enthält den Bericht der Mehrheitsfraktion der fünfköpfigen Untersuchungskommission zu den ?Machenschaften der Internationalen Allianz der sozialistischen Demokratie? auf dem IAA-Kongress 1872 in Den Haag. Die gegen die anarchistischen Aktivitäten Bakunins und dessen ?Alliance de la Democratie socialiste? gerichtete Veröffentlichung, wurde im Auftrag des Haager Kongresses der Ersten Internationale vom September 1872 erstellt. Sie wurde von Friedrich Engels mit der Hilfe von Paul Lafargue geschrieben, mit einem abschließenden Kapitel von Karl Marx und Friedrich Engels. - Im Anhang befinden sich ein Text der ?geheimen Bestimmungen der Alliance? sowie einige andere Dokumente. Die Broschüre wurde in einer Aufl. von 1.000 Exemplaren gedruckt. Eine deutsche Übersetzung erschien 1874 unter dem Titel ?Ein Complot gegen die Internationale Arbeiter-Assoziation?. In der Berichtsvorlage wird vom IAA-Kongress gefordert: ?1. den Bürger Bakunin aus der I.A.A. auszustossen 2. Gleicherweise die Bürger Guillaume & Schwitzguebel auszustossen, in der Überzeugung, dass dieselben noch immer der Gesellschaft der Alliance angehören 3. da es im Lauf der Untersuchung bewiesen wurde, dass die Bürger Malon, Bousquet [...] & Louis Marchand [...] Umtriebe gemacht haben, welche die Zerstückelung [...] der I.A.A. zum Ziele haben ? verlangt die Kommission gleicher Weise deren Ausstossung aus der Gesellschaft 4. Betreff der Bürger Morago, Farga Pelicer, Marcelau, Joukowski & Alérni hält sich die Kommission an deren förmliche Erklärung, dass sie der genannten Gesellschaft Alliance nicht mehr angehören, & verlangt dass der Kongress die Genannten ausser Anklage stelle. Um ihre Verantwortlichkeit zu decken, verlangen die Mitglieder der Kommission, dass die ihr mitgetheilten Schriftstücke & die gemachten Aussagen in einem officiellen Organ der Association veröffentlicht werden? (zit. nach Eckardt 2011, S. 852). - Der Band erschien in verlegerischer Kooperation u. a. im Hamburger Meissner-Verlag, in dem Marx seinen ersten ?Kapital?-Band 1867 veröffentlichte. - Mit handschriftlichem Besitzvermerk von Arthur Lehning. Offenbar handelt es sich um dessen Arbeitsexemplar. - Am Rücken Einrisse des Leinenbezugs. Vorsatzblätter etwas stockfleckig Innenteil mit einigen zeitgenössischen Anstreichungen in Blei. Nur in einigen wenigen Bibliotheken nachweisbar. - MELS, S. 37 Neubauer, S. 275.

        Japanese Game Board "Puzzle for Navigating or Wandering the World / Navigation et Prominade der Morde (sic) "

      , 1868. 1868. Otherwise very good condition. A geographical board game created in Japan during the Meiji period when the Emperor was opening Japanese society to Western influences. Roughly translated the Japanese title is, "Countries by Cruise Ship." The game starts with the key in the lower center of the board, with six circles which correspond to color coded regions of the world; Asia (yellow); Europe (red); North America (blue); South America (yellow); Africa (red); Australia (blue). It culminates in the top margin at Mount Fuji. There are 100 squares in 8 rows on the board, and each box within the row has an associated image and text in Japanese; some images correspond with the landscape of the destination - others are quite imaginary. Besides landscapes, there are many birds and animals (elephant, monkey, oxen, antelope, camel), ships and flags. There are soldiers, bathers, a man reading in a chair, Tartars and some Westerners. The indigenous people at the North Pole are wearing only loin cloths, sitting next to a fire. The title appears in three different languages at the right border of the game, first in French "Navigation et prominade der Morde" (sic), then in English, "Puzzle for Navigating or Wandering the World", then in Japanese. Further down on right margin are instructions for playing (in Japanese)- 'Roll dice' and 'How to play', 'New Year's Day - Yokahama', 'January 1868', 'New edition' and possibly the name of the creator of the game. Above the image in the each box is a series of numbers and names which correspond to the number of days it takes to sail to a location. The North American region includes Mexico with a conestoga wagon in Row 3 Box 1 (or 3-1) ; Columbia, South of the US (5-3) (buildings); New York (5-2) (men farming/scythe); San Francisco (8-6) (red roof), Washington, D.C. (2-5) with an image of the Capitol dome; (8-15) is the North Pole. The Asiatic region displays: Beijing (2-2) identified with a wall and covered urns; Chosen (Korea) with a tiger (2-3) ; Siam (4-1) (King); Sumatra (6-3); Siberia (7-3); Kirghiz (8-3); Siberia (7-3); Ryukyu (2-2); Tokyo (5-1) (with soldiers); Canton (4-4) (tea ceremony); Hong Kong (4-5); Taiwan (4-6); Peking (1-5); Tartary (5-9); Persia (3-9) (bathers wearing leaf skirts (?); Constantinople (1-7) with a mosque dome and the crescent on top with a red designed flag; Manchuria (5-5); Ceylon (5-12) with stacked tea bales and warehouse; (6-7) is a port in India (with a camel). The Australian region includes Sydney (8-2) (water, hills, a domed and rectangular buildings); New Zealand (7-13) with a many-masted early ship at shore, possibly one of Captain Cook's ships, flying a flag of St. George; the Antarctic/South Pole (or Port) (5-4) (ice/sea). European locales displayed include: London (1-1) with a bridge over the Thames; Lisbon (2-1); Austria (1-2) (two small animals); Greece (3-6) with a blue and white striped flag; Amsterdam (2-6); Denmark (3-10) ; Paris (1-7) a group of Westerners erecting (or pulling down) a rope line hung with flags, a few French and another red flag with diagonal cross bars; St. Petersburg (1-3); (5-7) is the Mediterranean; Paris (7-4) with two men sitting at an outdoor table, presumably at a café. Africa is represented by Canary (image of a globe) (6-13). Many of the locations were not identifiable, and those that were identified were done so by Japanese speakers. The game board measures 35 x 21.5" with 1/2 to 1" additional border. Woodblock with original hand color. Sometimes worn at original folds, some loss at a few of those intersections, a couple of old wormholes, backed on tissue, 1.5" square at bottom border with loss of text. The images are clear.

        The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication.

      John Murray, London 1868 - First edition, first issue, presentation copy, trimmed for presentation and with a slip of paper with inscription ?From the Author? in Darwin?s hand pasted to the front free endpaper. The term ?survival of the fittest? (borrowed at Wallace?s insistence from Herbert Spencer?s 1866 Principles of Biology) first appeared in the Variation (vol. 2, p. 89), preceding its first use in the fifth edition of the Origin of Species (1869). ?This represents the only section of Darwin?s big book on the origin of species which was printed in his lifetime and corresponds to its first two intended chapters? (Freeman). ?Its two volumes were intended to provide overwhelming evidence for the ubiquity of variation, although they would also incidentally answer Lyell and Gray, who maintained that variations had not occurred purely by chance but were providentially directed. Darwin showed that breeders indeed selected from a vast array of minute random variations. He gave numerous instances of the causes of variability, including the direct effect of the conditions of life, reversion, the effects of use and disuse, saltation, prepotency, and correlated growth. The Variation also addressed a key criticism of the Origin of Species: that it lacked an adequate understanding of inheritance? (ODNB). This work ?contained his hypothesis of pangenesis, by means of which Darwin tried to frame an explanation of hereditary resemblance, inheritance of acquired characteristics, atavism, and regeneration. It was a brave attempt to account for a number of phenomena which were beyond the bounds of scientific knowledge in his day, such as fertilization by the union of sperm and egg, the mechanism of chromosomal inheritance, and the development of the embryo by successive cell division? (DSB). ABPC/RBH list only three other presentation copies of this first issue: Sotheby?s, 10 July 2012, £8750 = $13,660; Sir John Lubbock?s copy, Sotheby?s, 11 December 1992, £1500 = $2330 (hammer) ? these two copies with presentation slip inscribed by Darwin as in the present copy ? and Sotheby?s, 15 December 2011, £61,250 = $94,860, inscribed by Darwin to his daughter Henrietta. The most recent presentation copy on the market was offered by 19th Century Shop in 2014 (Cat. 150, $35,000), with the same paper slip inscribed ?From the Author? by Darwin as in the present copy.Provenance: Paper slip inscribed ?From the Author? in Darwin?s hand pasted to front free endpaper, recipient unknown; James McBryde (bookplate on front paste-down), a Scottish chemist from near Stranraer, who co-founded an alkali firm in St Helens, Lancashire, which later merged with other chemical companies to become Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI). He owned a number of books on evolution, including several others by Darwin.On The Origin of Species was only an abstract of the long manuscript Darwin had begun writing on 14 May 1856 which he originally intended to complete and publish as the formal presentation of his views on evolution. Compared with the Origin, this work, which was to be titled Natural Selection, has more abundant examples in illustration of Darwin's argument plus an extensive citation of sources. It had reached a length of over one quarter of a million words and was well over half completed when on 18 June 1858 Darwin?s writing was dramatically interrupted when he received an essay from Alfred Russel Wallace in Borneo entitled On the Tendency of Species to form Varieties; and on the Perpetuation of Varieties and Species by Natural Means of Selection outlining his astonishingly parallel but independently conceived theory of natural selection. Darwin felt obliged to change his plans for initial publication; and, after the brief preliminary announcement was presented jointly with Wallace?s paper at the Linnean Society of London, he rapidly wrote out in eight months the new abstract of his views which appeared as the Origin of Species in 1859. But he still planned to publish a more extensive account o

        HE KNEW HE WAS RIGHT

      1868. [in 32 weekly parts] With Illustrations by Marcus Stone. London: Virtue & Company, October 17 [1868] - May 22 [1869]. Original grey-green pictorial wrappers printed in red and black. First Edition, in 32 weekly parts (serialization was also available in eight monthly parts, and at the end the novel was issued in two volumes). Louis Trevelyan "knows he is right" about his young wife's lack of faithfulness. This is~a long and detailed study of the gradual falling into madness of a suspicious husband... The final stages of his mental and moral dilapidation have a wild affliction unusual in the controlled world of Trollope characters. [Sadleir]~The publisher Virtue gave Trollope extremely generous terms in order to be able to publish this novel -- too generous: Virtue "went under" after the 29th part, after which Strahan & Co. picked up the remainder. (Hence the lack of inserted ads in the last three numbers, Strahan's name on those three inside-rear wrappers, and Strahan's name on the book title pages included in the last part.)~Included are 32 plates by Marcus Stone (one per part), and, at the end of the final part, the preliminary leaves for both volumes -- for those buyers who wanted to have their parts bound up. All ads specified by Sadleir are present (including the rather chaotic assortment of preliminary ads in Parts 21 through 25, when "Virtue was too flustered with commercial misfortune to prolong accurate advertising").~Condition overall is very good-plus: actually, Parts 2 through 31 are just about fine, but (as is often the case) the first part and last part show some edge-wear, especially at the spines. In all, this is quite a nice set of one of the eight Trollope novels that were serialized in parts. Sadleir 31 (pp 92-103). Housed in a handsome morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.

        Congres international des echecs. Compte rendu du congres de 1867 et des congres d'echecs anterieurs

      Paris: Imprimerie Generale de Ch. Lahure, 1868 xcii+480+[4 including errata] with diagrams and tables. Octavo (9" x 6) bound in bound in half leather withe raised spine bands and red label in gilt over marbled boards. Included Collection de Problemes by G R Neumann and J Arnous de Riviere. (Bibliotheca van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5194). First edition.World exhibitions became a new phenomenon in the West in the nineteenth century. Scientific and technical progress were shown. Ten World Fairs were organized during the second half of the nineteenth century. Seven times an international chess tournament was part of the event (London 1851, London 1862, Paris 1867, Vienna 1873, Philadelphia 1876, Paris 1878, Paris 1900). Paris, the French capital, was host to a world's fair exhibition in the summer of 1867. Among the enormous buildings erected to house new developments in science, technology (of which the Krupp Cannon was the most impressive display), and art, a master chess tournament was organized from June 4th to July 11th. It was held at the Grand Cercle, 10 boulevard Montmartre, not far from the 1.2 kilometer row of machinery for the exhibition, the third tournament. Thirteen chess masters were invited to participate in double rounds, with a time limit of six minutes per move and draws counting as zero for both players. The participants included Ignat Von Kolisch from the Austrio-Hungarian empire, Wilhelm Steinitz and Sam Loyd playing on behalf of the United States of America, Symon Winawer and Hieronim Czarnowski from Poland, Gustav Neumann from Germany, Cecil Valentine De Vere from England, Jules De Riviere, Samuel Rosenthal, Emile D'Andre, and Eugene Rousseau from France, Celso Golmayo Zupide from Cuba, and Martin Severin From from Denmark. There was no formal organization to international events at the time, so beyond the matches and time controls being set, players seemingly encountered one another during the tournament according to availability and inclination. The prize purse was distributed among the top six finishers, with Kolisch earning 5000 Francs for first place, Winawer 2500 Francs for second, Steinitz 2000 Francs for third, Neumann and De Vere 1500 Francs each for fourth and fifth places, and De Riviere 1000 Francs for sixth. The top four finishers also received a Sevres vase as an additional prize. Kolisch immediately liquidated his antique porcelain and invested in real estate which soon made him an extremely wealthy man, allowing him to be a generous patron to chess for decades afterwards. The problem tournament conducted during this event was won by Conrad Bayer ahead of Samuel Loyd. The first public women's chess was also played during this exhibition.Condition:Rebound in period leather and boards. Closed tear at page 65, previous owner's name to front end paper else a very good to fine copy.

        Courrier de Vaugelas (le). Journal bi-mensuel consacré à la propagation de la langue française. Questions grammaticales questions philologiques.

      Paris 1868-1887 Du numéro 1 (première année, 1er. octobre 1868) au numéro 20 et dernier (dixième année, 15 juin 1881), 2 vol. in-4, demi-toile verte. Collection complète. Rédacteur en chef : Ema Martin. Revue consacrée à la philologie et à la grammaire. « Le Courrier de Vaugelas, un des périodiques linguistiques du 19e siècle, est consacré à la propagation universelle de la langue française et a pour unique rédacteur E. Martin. Les thèmes étudiés sont abordés sous forme de questions-réponses avec des questions grammaticales et des questions philologiques. L'A. s'intéresse à cette publication (particulièrement entre 1868 et 1881) car elle s'inscrit dans une époque charnière tant pour les études linguistiques que pour la pratique pédagogique. Pour connaître la complexité et la diversité des forces idéologiques et politiques qui pèsent sur le Courrier ainsi que ses pratiques, l'A. étudie les jugements d'acceptabilité explicites et implicites qui touchent également indirectement les problèmes de la norme. Il relève certaines prises de position qui sembleraient marquer une assez grande distance par rapport à l'ensemble de la doxa ». Peu avant le décès du fondateur-rédacteur (1882), la publication fut interrompue de juin 1881 à 1886 ; reprise en 1887, la revue disparut définitivement le 20 décembre 1887. Table générale des matières jointe.

Original upper wrapper with marginal repaires, some spotting and tears, new spine and lower wrapper. Original edition of this highly critical review of the Tolstoy's War and Peace by his contemporary and a participant of the battle of Borodino. Very rare. Avraam Norov (1795 - 1869), a statesman and writer, had just started his military career when Napoleon invaded Russia. As a cadet, Norov took part in a number of battles, including the one in Borodino, where he lost his leg. Naturally, Norov felt very strongly about the recently published "War and Peace". Having read the first three parts that appeared in print by 1868, he thought that the Tolstoy's work lacked patriotism, respect towards the defenders of the Motherland and historical objectivity. Almost sixty pages of Norov's extensive commentary appeared in the No11 of military periodical "Voennyi sbornik" and as a separate publication the same year. Norov wrote: "???????? ???????? ????????????? ??????? ????? ????????? ??????? ?????????, ??? ? ?????? ??????? ?????? ??? ??????????? ???????? ???????? ??????? ??? ????? ??? ???????? ???????? ?? ?????????? ? ????, ???? ?? ?????, ? ????? ?? ????????, ????? ?? ????????? ?? ?? ??????????, ?????? ? ????????? ?? ????????? ??????? ????? ????, ???? ??????????, ???????? ?????? ????? ????????? ???? ?????????".

Autograph memorandum, bearing instructions for the preparation of the map appearing in his "Saint Paul" (1869), the third (and arguably best) part of Renan's "Histoire des origines du christianisme", the magnum opus which had begun in 1863 with "Vie de Jésus" and became a succès de scandale. Published by Michel Lévy Frères in 1869, "Saint Paul" contained the fruits of the journey Renan made with his wife Cornélie Scheffer following in the footsteps of the historical Paul. It also contained a detailed map with coloured itineraries of each of the journeys. The present memorandum provides the colour-coding for each of these, together with no less than 33 amendments to the details of the map. - Offered with a carte de visite of the architect Edmond Guillaume (1826-94) with Renan's autograph pencil notes to verso giving directions to his house in Sèvres (tipped to paper mount) and a letter (20 May 1893) from Noémie Psichari, Renan's daughter. - Provenance: Von Scholl collection.

Lieutenant Colonel Viktor Ernst Rudolph von Scheliha, a Prussian, served as Chief of Staff to General Buckner and acted also later as Chief Engineer of the Department of the Gulf, at Mobile. An English Officer, Captain Fitzgerald Ross, met him there in February 1864: "The Colonel is engaged in erecting a new line of forts round Mobile, which are perfect models of strength and judicious arrangements. They are built entirely of sand, with revetments of turf along. The turf on the embankments is fastened down to the sand by slips of the Cherokee rose,an exceedingly prickly shrub, which when grown will become a very disagreeable obstacle to a storming party. Mobile will soon be one of the mostly strongly fortified places in the world." (See: Mahin: "The Blessed Place of Freedom: Europeans in Civil War America" 2002; Lonn: "Foreigners in the Confederacy" 1940, reprinted 2002; Tidwell: "Come Retribution: The Confederate Secret Service and the Assassination of Lincoln" 2001). In his heart, Scheliha remained a Prussian: "Treatise on Coast-Defence" is humbly dedicated to Prince Adelbert of Prussia.

        Kaidai Hyaku Senso, Goto Matabei Mototsugu

      Ohashi (printer) 1868 - A stunning coloured woodblock print of the notable warrior Goto Matabei Motsugu, vassal of Kuroda Nagamasa, by the famous artist Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, also known by the name of Taiso Yoshitoshi. Born in 1839, Yoshitoshi became famous in Japan as a ukiyo-e and nishiki-e artist for his `bloody prints` of people, mostly warriors, suffering graphic and grizzly deaths. This print is part of his Kaidai Hyaku Senso (Selection of One Hundred Warriors) series. It has been backed with washi paper and trimmed at the margins. There is a little rubbing, and one or two very small wormholes, but these are almost indistinguishable. The printing is of excellent quality and the colours bright. Text in Japanese.
