        Le 26 Octobre

      Depot Central Chez Madre, Paris 1869 - 12mo, 32 [1] pp, contemporary or early rebind in brown percaline with red leather spine label lettered in gilt; original orange wraps, bearing a printed title pastedown to front panel, preserved and bound in. Edition unstated, but according to Noel, one of 900 copies printed. A second edition was produced later the same year, incorporating a response to the text by Keratry. Inscribed by Grousset at the title page to "Jules Richard"; the title page bears a "timbre imperial" stamp. Near fine. A manifesto by Grousset, who was at the time the editor of Le Marseillase, following the elections that May which would lead to the dissolution of the house. Grousset would soon after the publication of this work become a member of Paris Commune, and after its fall was deported to New Caledonia, where he would eventually escape. During his time away from France Grousset spent some time on the west coast of the US, and the southern Oregon coast would become the setting of his dystopian tale Le Cinq Cents Millions de Begum, which would eventually be published under Jules Verne's name. Grousset was unable to publish under his own name at the time due to his involvement with Paris Commune, and the publisher Hetzel had Jules Verne rewrite it. The book was the first to be published under Verne's name in his lifetime that struck a pessimistic note about the future of human technology, and the book anticipated the development of long range missiles. Verne and Grousset would go on to write a couple of books together, and Grousset would also write several other science fiction tales under pseudonym. The inscription may be M. Jules Richard, the military historian - if so, a minor but fascinating Paris Commune association, as that Richard published the first biography of Cluseret, also a member of the Commune.

        Miscellaneous papers on mechanical subjects.

      . Manchester, George Falkner [for the author], 1869-1870. Large 8vo. 76 pp. [8; 7; 8; 6, table; 8; 2, mounted photo; 6; 8, plate; 8; 3; 3; 7, [ii]; plate], one mounted photograph, one double-sized partly handcoloured plate, one b/w plate. Original pebbled calf. Boards black and gilt ruled, spine with gilt title. All edges gilt.l A compilation of 13 works (two combined into one) by the British engineer, inventor, entrepreneur and philanthropist Sir Joseph Whitworth (1803-1887), and comments upon these, apparently gather by, and printed for Whitworth himself. An earlier work with exactly the same title but different contents was published in 1858 (London; Longman, Brown, Green, etc.), and a later one, also with different contents, in 1873 by the author. Both the earlier and later work are uncommon; this one, however, seems to be quite rare. Of special interest is the early photograph, showing the effect of specially designed ammunition on objects under water. Two papers are letters published in the "Times", and entirely reset. A small note on the title page states that this is a "presentation copy to Sir Wm. E. Gladstone MP". The British Liberal statesman William Ewart Gladstone (1809-1898) was British premier in 1868-1874, 1880-1885, 1886 and 1892-1894. The front flyleaf verso has the pencilled annotation "With the compliments of Geo M Snyder" [?]. Boards with very slight wear, otherwise a very good, clean copy..

        Jay Gould, in a display of his brazen disregard for ethics, uses Erie Railway funds to purchase choice real estate for himself

      New York, April 9, 1869. 8.5" x 13.75". "Document Signed ?Jay Gould,? 6 pages 8.5"" x 13.75"", New York, December 14, 1869, a deed of trust to the Erie Railway Company for several parcels of land purchased by Gould in the New Jersey Meadowlands. Folds, some light toning, loss to top left corner of each page, not affecting text, a few contemporary paper losses in margins and not affecting text, else very good overall. The document chronicles several transactions made by Gould in the fall of 1868 including this example: on 15 September 1868, Gould purchased two parcels of land in Hudson, New Jersey (now part of Jersey City) from John and Caroline Cook ten acre tract known as ?Canada Meadow? located on the banks of the Penhorn Creek (a tributary of the Hackensack River). He also purchased a seven acre salt meadow from the same couple, ?Bounded Northwest by Pen Horne Creek, northeast by a ditch, southeast by the Railroad...? together with a few other minor parcels. In addition, the Cooks also sold a ten acre tract on the North Bergen side of Penhorn Creek and a one acre salt meadow nearby. In total, the Cooks sold Gould five parcels of land. At the conclusion of the document Gould declared that he would continue to own and hold the five parcels ?... in trust only, for the use and benefit of the Erie Railway Company ... that, I, or my heirs, shall and will convey the said premises by a good and sufficient deed to the said The Erie Railway Company, or any other person or corporation, whenever the said Company my so direct and require. And that I or my heirs, shall not do, or knowingly suffer or permit any act, deed, matter or thing, whereby said premises can, shall or may be in anywise impaired, injured or encumbered, in title, interest, charge, estate, or otherwise...? A survey of period maps indicates that most of these parcels were alongside the main branch linking Jersey City to the main line of the Erie Railroad ?" property with enormous value. Gould purchased the parcels just as he was consolidating control over the financially troubled Erie Railroad. The lands would later form a key part of Gould?s settlement with the Erie Railroad after the railroad sued him for $10 million, accusing its former president of stock manipulation and embezzlement among other sins. After the Erie?s board of directors in 1872 forced him from the railroad?s presidency, they slapped Gould with a $10 million lawsuit that accused him of, among a long list of other things, purchasing numerous tracts of land with Erie funds but under his name. According to the suit, Gould ?purchased with the moneys of the plaintiff for the use and on account of the plaintiff, tracts of land ... taking the title to such lands in his own name, but in trust, nevertheless, for the plaintiff.? (?At Last. Arrest of Jay Gould, the Great Erie Conspirator? New York Times, 23 November 1872; ?Gould and Erie. A Suite Commenced Against the Late President of the Line. More Frauds ?" Land and Buildings alleged to Have Been Purchased by the Defendant for His own Use by the Company?s Funds.? New York Times, August 4, 1872.) Gould had little to worry about. The Erie was a financial disaster (and was long before Gould entered the picture), and its new President, Peter H. Watson, was unwilling to engage in a protracted legal battle. Gould got wind of Watson?s disposition, and in a series of secret meetings negotiated a settlement. The Erie agreed to accept compensation from Gould in the form of various stocks, bonds and real estate, including ?The various pieces of real estate in New-York, New-Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Ohio? according to a published letter in the press. The combined value Gould believed ?worth more to the Erie Company than the total sum claimed.? Gould did slyly admit his guilt in the nature of at least some of the transactions, stressing that ?Some of these properties were purchased with my own means, and the Company has no claim upon them, but they are necessary for its use...? (Jay Gould to Peter H. Watson, 17 December 1872 as quoted in The New York Times, December 20, 1872.) Because Gould later arranged to have his own accounting records relative to his involvement with the Erie destroyed in 1874, we may never be able to judge the veracity of his statements. (Edward Renehan, Dark Genius of Wall Street. 2005, pp. 212-214.) While for some, this is yet another example of Gould as the speculative opportunist ?" it also calls attention to Gould?s astute business acumen and deep understanding of the business and operations of railroads. Many of the parcels named in this particular transaction did remain under the control of the Erie, some of which are now part of the vast Croxton rail yards located in the meadows between Secaucus and Jersey City."

In the words of the British economist Harold Laski, the Manifesto is "admitted by every serious student of society to be one of the outstanding documents of all time". It also constitutes an early sum of Marx' and Engels' ideas, later to become known under the heading of 'scientific socialism': "[L]e manifeste renferme en puissance la quasi-totalite des idees elaborees par ses deux auteurs dans leurs ouvrages ulterieurs et qui, dans leur ensemble, representent ce qu'ils appellent le socialisme scientifique; la seul exception importante est la theorie de la plus-value" (Andreas, p. 1). - This first Russian translation was prepared by the anarchist Mikhail Bakunin, "who despite being one of Marx and Engels' most pronounced opponents in the working class movement, saw the great revolutionary importance contained within the Manifesto" (note to the preface of the 1882 Russian translation). Due to state censorship, publication in Russia was out of the question. The printer, Louis (Ludwik) Czerniecki, was a Polish emigre who had come to Switzerland via London with the Russian revolutionary democrat Alexander Herzen. His Polish printing press served the Free Russian Press, in especial Herzen's paper "Kolokol" ("The Bell"), the Russian emigrants' leading organ of the time. Prior to this translation, the only bits of the Manifesto to reach Russian readers were a single sentence in the radical St. Petersburg journal "Sovremnik" (12/1858), reminiscent of the Manifesto's famous final sentence, and a paraphrase of the beginning of Section I that appeared as an introduction to a German-translated article in "Zagranicnij Vestnik" (6/1864). Neither of these publications cited their source. Unbeknownst to either author, it would be Russia where the Revolution heralded by the Manifesto would finally take place, under the leadership of their disciple Lenin who did not discover Marxism until after Marx's death (but who was later to prepare his own translation of the Communist Manifesto). - Engels, in his preface to the 1888 English edition of the Manifesto, stated in twofold error that "the first Russian translation, made by Bakunin, was published at Herzen's 'Kolokol' office in Geneva, about 1863; a second one, by the heroic Vera Zasulich, also in Geneva, 1882". In fact, Bakunin's version appeared in 1869, and the 1882 translation, with a preface by the authors, is by Georgi Plekhanov. Neither Marx nor Engels appears ever to have owned a copy of this Russian translation. Shrewdly, it was issued without wrappers or title page, with no mention of place or year, editor, printer, or translator. The printed title label present in our copy is also confirmed in the single other copy available for comparison (Geneva). Extremely rare: the only known copy in private hands; only three other copies are known in libraries worldwide (Bibliotheque de Geneve; Institute of Marxism-Leninism of the Central Committee of the CPSU; Russian State Library/Gos. Biblioteka Imeni Lenina; photocopies in the Andreas and Feltrinelli collections). - A bit of wear to extremities. Binding very slightly loosened; gutter of flyleaf and first leaf inconspicuouly reinforced. All in all very well preserved. - Andreas 54. OCLC 717010404 (Bibliotheque de Geneve, BGE Brsl 954/10). Rubel 70 (note, "1859" in error). Cf. PMM 326.

        Ueber die Beziehungen der Eigenschaften zu den Atomgewichten der Elemente [On the Relation of the Properties to the Atomic Weights of the Elements]

      Leipzig: Zeitschrift für Chemie; Quandt and Handel, 1869. THE PERIODIC TABLE: Likely the first appearance of Mendeleev?s periodic table in a Western journal. Although priority has not been established between this Zeitschrift für Chemie appearance and the Journal für praktische Chemie appearance, it was clearly the more complete 1869 Zeitschrift appearance that was the most influential. ?In 1868 Mendeleev began writing his famous textbook, Principles of Chemistry. As he later related, it was while exploring various alternative organizational schemes for this book that he hit upon the periodic law. While waiting for the book to appear in print (the first edition was published in installments between 1868 and 1871), Mendeleev produced a single-page flier summarizing his new organizational scheme entitled An Attempted System of the Elements Based on their Atomic Weights and Chemical Analogies, which he circulated among Russian chemists in early 1869. In March of that year he presented a more detailed paper to the newly founded Russian Chemical Society entitled ?On the Correlation Between the Properties of the Elements and their Atomic Weights?. This, in turn, was published in the first volume of the society?s new journal.?This paper, however, ?was not translated from Russian until 1895 and consequently played little or no role in initially acquainting American, British and western European chemists with the periodic law. This role was played instead by two short German abstracts of the paper, one of which appeared in the Journal für praktische Chemie and the other in the Zeitschrift für Chemie... The first reproduced only Mendeleev?s table, without any commentary or explanation... To the best of our knowledge, only the longer abstract in the Zeitschrift für Chemie had a significant impact, as it was the reading of this abstract that stimulated the German chemist, Lothar Meyer, to publish his own thoughts on the periodic law in late 1870 and which ultimately gave rise to a vigorous priority debate? (William B. Jensen, Mendeleev on the Periodic Law).IN: Zeitschrift für Chemie, Vol 12 (1869), pp.405-406. Leipzig: Quandt & Handel, 1869. Octavo, modern three-quarter calf. Whole volume (p.1-766) offered. Bound without general title. With a rear yellow wrapper bound-in. Marginal repair to last leaf of index; one index leaf with corner tear; a few leaves toward the rear with repaired corners (not affecting text). Mendeleev paper fine. Beautifully bound. RARE.

        Art Supplement to Appletons' Journal - The Beach at Long Branch

      Appleton.. 1869.. Wood engraving, fold out Art Supplement to Appletons' Journal 1869, 13 x 19 1/2 inches on sheet size 15 1/2 x 21 inches. Paper loss to lower left corner (just affecting very edge of image), multiple folds as issued, upper horizontal fold line has been backed with Japanese paper, a few short edge tears at lower edge; overall good, clean condition. The prominent late 19th century American artist Winslow Homer worked as an illustrator for Harper's Weekly and other illustrated journals from the 1850s to the mid 1870s, his designs being rendered as wood-engravings. Homer's superior artistic abilities were recognised in this elaborate foldout "art supplement" about which the magazine wrote: Mr. Winslow us a picture of the ease and pleasurable abandon which accompany life at Long Branch. On the beach, more than anywhere else in the world, society throws aside its dignity. Men and women make children of themselves. Those in the water give themselves up to sport, frolicking with each other and with the waves, thoughtless of fashion and its formalities. . . . Our artist suggests an old poetic thought in the letters drawn [the artist's initials], by a young girl, in the sand." This lovely image is in the American Art collection of the Brooklyn Museum. .

      [First published, New York: Wm. A. Pond, 1869. Two stanzas and chorus, on one page, in ink. 4to. Fine. "Sweet Genevieve" by Stephen Foster's Friend, George Cooper One of the most popular songs of the 19th century, with music by Henry Tucker, "Sweet Genevieve" is one of the few surviving song by George Cooper (1838-1927?), whose friendship with Stephen Foster in the last few months of Foster's life has been well documented. The two evidently collaborated on some songs together, which are now lost. It was Cooper who discovered the prostrate body of his stricken friend on the Bowery the day before Foster died, and who informed the family of his death.Autograph lyrics of George Cooper are of the utmost rarity.
