WHITNEY, Josiah Dwight
Julius Bien, New York, 1868. 116pp. Twenty-eight mounted albumen photographs, each 6 x 8 inches, and two folding maps. Publisher's half purple morocco and purple cloth covered boards, upper cover stamped in gilt, spine gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges Twenty-eight mounted photographs of Yosemite. An important photographically illustrated piece of Western Americana, containing twenty-eight original albumen photographs, the first twenty-four produced by Carleton T. Watkins in 1866 and the final four by W. Harris the following year. The Yosemite Book. was assembled by the office of the California State Geologist, headed by J.D. Whitney. The text was based mainly on the field survey work done by Clarence King in the 1866 season, supplemented with material from other sources. The whole was intended as a lavish guide to Yosemite. Only 250 copies were issued with photographs, as in the present copy. The rest were done on a smaller format to serve more practically as a guide book. The maps are the best of the Yosemite region produced up to that time. Whitney was justifiably proud of the work, which appeared early in 1869, although completed in December 1868. Currey & Kruska conclude that it is "one of the major contributions to Sierra Nevada literature." This work is now scarce. It was notably absent from the DeGolyer Library exhibition devoted to photographically illustrated western books (although it is listed in the appendix). Important and visually impressive.

Publisher's brown cloth, title in gilt on front board and in blind on rear board, expertly rebacked, retaining original backstrip.

An important guidebook to Chicago before the Great Fire of 1871, featuring views of many buildings that were soon to be destroyed. Included are panoramas of Chicago in 1830 and then in 1868, as well as images of the (Old) University of Chicago, Crosby's Opera House, the Court House, Chamber of Commerce, Orphan Asylum, Tremont House, the depot of the Michigan Southern and Rock Island railroad line, and the Water Works (the water tower survived the fire). Advertisements are abundant and are interspersed throughout, weaving seamlessly in and out of indexes to Chicago businesses, banks, churches, tourist attractions, and newspapers.

A.D. Cross, [Boston?], 1868. Small carte de visite photograph, approximately 2.5" x 4". Fine in original printed envelope which adds additional biographical information. The envelope is lightly soiled, but otherwise near fine. Letterpress printed below the photo is the publication information. The envelope includes information about Bakeman's birth on the Van Rensselaer Patent in Albany County, New York on October 10, 1759, his service under Capt. Van Aernam and Col. Willet during the last four years of the Revolution, and his then current residency in Cattaraugus, N.Y. In 1864 Reverend Elias Brewster Hilliard (the maternal grandfather of poet Archibald MacLeish) compiled his book *The Last Men of the Revolution: A Photograph of Each from Life*, now one of the most eagerly sought after early photography books. Bakeman was not among the six veterans pictured, however there is much reason to believe that Bakeman was indeed the last survivor of the Revolution, and one of very few to live through the Civil War as well. A rare photograph, and excessively so with the printed envelope.

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 ...".

WATSON, James C.
Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott & Co, 1868. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's pebbled cloth binding with gilt lettering on the spine, spine a bit worn at head and faded, corners worn; interior in good condition with browning only on the first and last blanks, small library book label on the flyleaf verso. First edition of this thorough and valuable investigation of theoretical astronomy. Watson provides an in-depth analysis of planetary motion and the discovery of new comets, noting in his preface the fundamental complications of dynamics and all the problems presented. He states historical facts relating to difficulties with theoretical astronomy, citing Newton, Euler, Boscovich, Lagrange, and Laplace, among others. Through a series of observations and tables, Watson attempts to determine the orbit of the "heavenly bodies." At age 15, Watson (1838-1880) matriculated at the University of Michigan, where he began studying classical languages and later focused on astronomy with professor Franz Brünnow. He then became the second director of Detroit Observatory, succeeding his late professor. It was during this time he wrote this work on theoretical astronomy. Watson is best known for his announcement of the discovery of the planet Vulcan, a body between Mercury and the sun. It is now assumed that what he actually viewed were the results of sun spots and small planetoids, which may exist. It is also assumed (in astronomical lore) that his imagined celestial body was the inspiration for the planet Vulcan in the Star Trek series.

McDONALD, Thomas E.
New Jersey / New York / Michigan / Ohio. 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, have telephoned to Baker and writt … [Click Below for Full Description]

CANBY, William and James)
Gales & Seaton, Washington, D.C, 1868. A collection of 62 bound large folio volumes consisting of 59 volumes of the *Daily National Intelligencer* (published daily except Sunday); and three volumes of the *National Intelligencer* (triweekly edition). Owned and edited by Joseph Gales, Jr., in partnership with his brother-in-law William W. Seaton, the *Intelligencer* provided the nation with accurate and detailed reports of governmental activities (including debates and speeches, President's messages, proclamations, etc.), along with daily articles, reports, editorials, etc, on the most important events and issues of the day. According to *The New York Times* (reporting on an incident during the War of 1812): ". so powerful was its influence that when Gen. Ross, in command of the British troops, entered the capital after the unfortunate affair of Bladensburgh, his first inquiry was not for the Capitol, the President's house, or the departments, but for the *National Intelligencer* office, and it was the first establishment demolished, causing a short cessation in its regular publication." Primarily a political newspaper, the *Intelligencer* served as the voice of the Madison, Monroe, and J. Quincy Adams administrations, and it continued to serve as the voice of the Federal Government until the election of Andrew Jackson, when the newspaper switched to the Whig party. It was printed in four pages (typically five columns to the page). Most other newspapers from throughout the country took their coverage of national politics and government directly from the *Intelligencer*. The … [Click Below for Full Description]
