TWAIN, Mark
Hartford, Conn: American Pub. Co. [and 5 others], 1869. 1869 1ed Mark Twain SIGNED Innocents Abroad Illustrated Travel Guide Holy Land "One must travel, to learn." - Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad This famous Mark Twain novel, "The Innocents Abroad", was an important novel in the history of 'subscription only' books. This book was huge - comparatively speaking - to the size of other books. When first printed, it resembled the size of a desk dictionary and gave the buyer a sense of 'more for your money' because of its girth. It is considered Twain's first real success and is described as a travel (or anti-travel, perhaps) book and is one of the best-selling travel books of all time. (Melton). This first edition includes a signature of Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) and meets all the expected edition points listed below.

Grant, Ulysses S
1869. Autograph of President Ulysses S. Grant, on an off-white sheet, which measures 3.5 inches by 1.75 inches. Double-matted and framed with a nameplate, engraving, and a Grant-Wilson Republican ticket. The entire piece measures 18.25 inches by 17.5 inches. In fine condition. A very attractive piece. Ulysses S. Grant was the 18th President of the United States (1869-77). As Commanding General of the United States Army (1864-69), Grant worked closely with President Abraham Lincoln to lead the Union Army to victory over the Confederacy in the Civil War. He implemented Congressional Reconstruction, often at odds with Lincoln's successor, Andrew Johnson. Twice elected president, Grant led the Republicans in their effort to remove the vestiges of Confederate nationalism and slavery, protect African-American citizenship, and supported unbridled nationwide industrial expansionism during the Gilded Age.

London: Macmillan and Co., 1869. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine in gilt, boards with celestial motifs in gilt representing the Crab Nebula in Taurus and Donati's Comet, double gilt rules to boards, all edges gilt, brown coated endpapers. Housed in a custom blue cloth clamshell box with titles in silver to faux-leather spine label. Binder's ticket (Burn & Co) to rear pastedown. Spine ends a trifle bumped, two small worm holes to front joint, somewhat rubbed and darkened, rear hinge cracked but firm, occasional faint spotting and finger-soiling, but without ownership marks. A very good copy indeed, the contents clear and the binding square. First edition, first issue. One of 28 presentation copies sent out by Dodgson on 7 Januray 1869, inscribed by the author in brown ink on the half-title: "T. Heaphy, Esq. with the Author's Kind regards. Jan. 1869". The recipient was Thomas Frank Heaphy the Younger (1813-1873), a well regarded portrait and narrative painter whose name figures heavily in Dodgson's journal entries for late 1868 and 1869. Dodgson had introduced himself to the artist for he admired him and his painting of a ghost-lady he had seen; a fitting ghostly gift, as "the word Phantasmagoria was invented in 1802, and seems to mean a Gathering of Ghosts" (Crutch). A wonderful association copy. Williams-Madan-Green-Crutch 68. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

ELIOT, George)
For Private Circulation only. 1869 [1888]. 15pp. Half title. Sewn as issued in orig. pale blue printed wrappers. A v.g. copy in green cloth portfolio. Baker & Ross B6.1. See Carter & Pollard pp191-193. This is the first printing, made some time in 1888. Analysis of both the paper and type show this could not have been printed as early as 1869, and is undoubtedly one of Thomas J. Wise's notorious forgeries. The pamphlet was first offered to the British Museum in October 1888, for the price of 3 guineas, and further copies were distributed in the years that followed. The sonnets were written by Eliot in 1869, but first appeared in print in The Legend of Jubal, first published in 1874. With accompanying hand-written notes on a Scribner's Bookstore envelope, by the bibliographer John Carter, in which he confirms the publication to be a forgery.

LUTGERS, Petrus Josephus.
Gezigten in de omstreken van Utrecht, opgedragen aan H.M. de Koningin der Nederlanden. Naar de natuur geteekend en op steen gebragt door P.J. Lutgers met geschiedkundige aanteekeningen van W.J. Hofdijk.[The Hague, J.D. Steuerwald], 1869. Folio. With a lithographed title-page (with a separately tinted lithographed view) and 87 tinted lithographed plates (ca. 16.5 x 22.5 cm), designed and lithographed by P.J. Lutgers. Near contemporary half sheepskin by J.A. Loebèr, Leiden [8], XVIII pp. + 87 plates. Enlarged second edition of the most detailed and extensive set of views of stately houses and their gardens, other buildings and landscapes, all in the vicinity of Utrecht, with 88 tinted lithographs (including the title-page). Most of the views show people in the foreground, and some include boats on the canals, horses, cattle, dogs, etc. The view of the town of Rhenen (35 kilometres east of Utrecht) even shows the recently introduced steam boats on the river. All were drawn in situ by Lutgers (1808-1874), who spent about ten years preparing this last of his four great series of views. This time, however, he used tint blocks, giving a beige background to most of each print, but with a few areas left white to indicate the lighting or to highlight a feature. The lithographic title-page is followed by a two-page dedication to the queen (Sophia Frederica Mathilda, wife of King Willem III), Lutgers' two-page preface, a two-page list of the plates, and eighteen pages with Hofdijk's notes on the history and owners of the houses depicted.Some of the plates foxed.

Some light rubbing and slight sunning; a fine copy.. 8vo, contemporary blue half morocco, spine elaborately gilt, blue cloth sides, 607, [1], [4] pages, t.e.g. Frontis portrait, engraved title page (as published). This copy from the library of Halleck's biographer James Grant Wilson himself, with a small ink autograph note mounted to a preliminary binder's blank, "Purchased at the sale of the Sedgwick Library, New York, March 27, 1877. Jas. Grant Wilson." (New York lawyer William Ellery Sedgwick had died in 1873; his library was sold at the Clinton Hall sale rooms on March 27 and March 28 in 1877, with a 68-page catalog published by Leavitt.) Wilson has somewhat grangerized his own copy here, with six related supplementary autograph pieces tipped in, including a manuscript agreement between publisher J. S. Redfield and Fitz Greene Halleck to "Stereotype, print and publish, and endeavor to sell your Poems in one volume 12mo, the proceeds of sales, after paying . . . $325.21 recently paid by me to Harper & Brothers, and all other expenses, to be equally divided between you and me as fast as realized," dated New York, April 12, 1852, signed and endorsed by Halleck on the verso. (Redfield published three editions of Halleck's poems between 1852 and 1854.) Additional inserted material includes 1887 letters from Horatio Gates Jones and from William Leete Stone to Wilson on articles submitted for Appletons' Cyclopedia of American Biography (of which Wilson was an editor); an 1851 note from Edward Robinson to … [Click Below for Full Description]

COATSWORTH, Stella S.
Chicago, Church, Goodman, Donnelly, Printers, 1869. 8vo. Original green pictorial cloth with bevelled edges, lettered and decorated in gilt; pp. 402, steel-engraved frontispiece with tissue guard, three wood-engraved plates of buildings and 10 steel-engraved portraits, all with tissue guards, mostly after photographs; extremities a little worn, inner hinges strengthened, wood-engraved plates a little browned, otherwise very good. Very rare first edition. Stella Coatsworth's husband served as a medical officer during the Civil War and died of pneumonia after the Battle of Stones River. 'Hailing from the family of an old Revolutionary officer, and surrounded by family ties which gave her rare facilities for usefulness, the author … was thrown into the hot water of the war at the beginning of its fiery eruption … she became familiar with the great struggle in its inner minutiae; and she has invested with peculiar interest, and related with eloquence, scenes that, by most historians, are given as cold statistics, or passed by unnoticed' (the Reverend T. M. Eddy in the Introductory Note). Stella Coatsworth analyses as well the socio-political background of the war, slavery and the anti-slavery movement, describes battles and treatises, fundraising for the war effort in the North, and the bitter end of the war. - Strangely, the author is not mentioned in the American National Biography or other reference works.

Hard Times for Congressman Garfield from Ohio. Ezra B. Taylor, a Republican lawyer and judge from Garfield's home state of Ohio, was elected Republican Representative to the 46th Congress to fill the vacancy created by Garfield's resignation to seek the Presidency. Taylor served several terms in Congress thereafter. In this letter to Taylor, Garfield writes, "Your favor of the 18th, inclosing a draft ... for Five Hundred Dollars, is just received and I have endorsed the amount on your note. It comes just in time to aid me in a hard pinch ... I have obtained a loan which will tide me over for the present ..." Garfield pens an intriguing postscript: "I think it was right that the P.M. at Ravenna [Ohio] should be allowed a check line - & am glad to have been able to secure the allowance for E.T.E".

[PRINT]. DUTTON, Thomas Goldsworth.
Clipperfregatschip met hulpstoomvermogen "Utrecht", kapitein A. Hoogenstraten.London, William Foster, 1869. Double-tinted lithograph, finished in colour (ca. 48 x 66.5 cm) in a passepartout and framed (ca. 67.5 x 88.5 cm). Rare portrait of the ship Utrecht, a full-rigged clipper with auxiliary power and screw propellers, built in 1868 for the firm of Van Zeylen & Decker in Rotterdam and capable of carrying 2009 tons. During the subsequent years, the ship made several voyages between Rotterdam and Batavia (Jakarta) and Semarang, carrying passengers and goods. Although the ship was equipped with an auxiliary steam engine, this system proved a failure and was removed in 1870-1871. After being sold to the firm of Voorhoeve & Jelier in Rotterdam, the ship sailed between Rotterdam, The United Kingdom, Ireland, the Dutch East Indies and San Francisco. The ship was sold in 1888 to the firm of C.M. Matzen in Hamburg and afterwards possibly to a firm in Norway.The British lithographer Thomas Goldsworth Dutton was "not only the finest 19th century lithographer of shipping scenes and ship portraits but happily the most prolific" (Archibald). During his career he produced numerous portraits of ships, including mercantile vessels of international companies, a large number of war ships of the Royal Navy and several yachts, as well as naval actions during the Crimean War.In fine condition, with only a few spots.

Les Indiens des États-Unis. Including: SEMALLÉ, René de. [Drop-title:] Note sur les Indiens de l'Amérique du Nord.Paris, A. Marc (colophon of second offprint: E. Martinet), 1869. 2 offprints published as 1. 8vo. Original publisher's letterpress printed wrappers. 32; 7, [1 blank] pp. Offprint of two articles on North American Indians by René de Semallé. The first article originally appeared in L'illustration, the second in Bulletin de la Société de Géographie, both in 1868. The former gives some general information on the Indian tribes in North America, with special attention to their way of living and their customs. De Semallé states that the Indians, contrary to what the American newspapers try to make people believe, weren't cruel at all and even showed a chivalrous nobility. Moreover, he criticises the attitude of the American settlers, who continued to attack or harass the indigenous Americans. The second, well-documented article states that during the last few years indigenous American population has not continued to decrease, as the newspapers still claimed, but has increased.With offsetting from correction slips on a few pages, the lower corners rounded and the upper corners frayed; otherwise good. Wrappers slightly frayed and the spine tattered. Sabin 79045; not in Streeter.

Portrait sur acier de Baudelaire au frontispice par Nargeot, avec sa serpente. Clouzot précise : "Très rare en reliure d'époque sans tomaison au dos", ce qui est le cas de cet exemplaire.
