        The Subjection of Women.

      London, Lonmans, Green, Reader, and Dyer, 1869. 8vo. Uncut in the original embossed dark yellow full cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Brown coated endpapers. Soiling to extremities and corners bumped. Inner hinges weak. Interanlly nice and clean. The famous sociologist Peter Townsend's copy, with his handwritten owner's signature and date "November 1956" to title-page. (4), 188 pp.. First edition of Mill's highly controversial work and "the last of [Mill's] great political tracts" (ODNB). "The Subjection of Women" constitutes one of the most important and famous works on feminism and women's rights ever to be published - certainly the most important (and controversial) of the 19th century. Mill regarded the status of women in society as not only harmful for women themselves, but for society in general. Having half the human race unable to contribute to society outside of the home was a hindrance to human development in general."The object of this Essay is to explain as clearly as I am able, the grounds of an opinion which I have held from the very earliest period when I had formed any opinions at all on social or political matter, and which, instead of being weakened or modified, has been constantly growing stronger by the progress of reflection and the experience of life: That the principle which regulates the existing social relations between the two sexes-the legal subordination of one sex to the other-is wrong in itself, and now one of the chief hindrances to human improvement; and that it ought to be replaced by a principle of perfect equality, admitting no power or privilege on the one side, nor disability on the other" (p. 1).The present work ultimately takes a prominent place in Mill's general philosophy of freedom, since "Subjection of Women" can be seen in large part as a long argument on the abuse of power: "Mill's father defended democracy, but also argued that votes for women were unnecessary, since the male could adequately represent the interests of the family and those who were parts of it. But the younger Mill points out that the interests of the male could diverge from those of the female in the family. Here he recognizes as elsewhere he does not, that the actions of individuals in an aggregate often do not result in maximizing the general welfare of the parts. Male self-interest is in the subjection of women. The self-interest of women is in their own liberation. Since male self-interest clearly does conflict with the self-interest of the female, the votes of women are needed to curb the pursuit of male self-interest. (SEP)John Stuart Mill credited his wife, Harriet Taylor Mill, with co-writing the essay. This was disputed in 2009 (Tong, Feminist Thought: A More Comprehensive Introduction). It has also been noted that some of the arguments are similar to Harriet Taylor Mill's essay The Enfranchisement of Women which was published in 1851.Professor Peter Brereton Townsend (1928 - 2009) was a British sociologist. The last position he held was Professor of International Social Policy at the London School of Economics. He was also Emeritus Professor of Social Policy in the University of Bristol, and was one of the co-founders of the University of Essex. He wrote widely on the economics of poverty and was co-founder of the Child Poverty Action Group. The Peter Townsend Policy Press Prize was established by the British Academy in his memory.(PMM 345 & 398)

        VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA: WHITEHEAD'S MAP OF VICTORIA, WITH ALPHABETICAL KEY, 1869.

      - Jahr : Melbourne: Printed & Published by E. Whitehead & Co, 67 Collins Street East, 1869. This rare map of Victoria, printed in Melbourne, is an early edition of the important Whitehead map series of the colony, and depicts the region towards the end of the Gold Rush Era. The map provides a richly detailed impression of Victoria, dividing the colony into counties and districts, many newly founded, each distinguished in their own full original colours. Roads, railways and telegraph lines are marked, many of which radiate out of Melbourne, the era’s great boomtown of the British Empire. Additionally, innumerable settlements are marked, many having sprung up during the Gold Rush. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the map is its extremely extensive recording of goldfields and diggings all across the Victorian interior. Curiously, this particular example of the map features contemporary manuscript additions of "Xs", which likely refer to "X marks the Spot," likely being annotations by a country prospector staking out gold diggings. The map also features numerous printed notes such as "country under water," "thickly wooded country," the "Electric Telegraph route, and Mail Road to Sydney", and so forth. The comprehensive index that borders the map lists literally hundreds of towns and settlements and designates those that feature postal stations and money order offices. The map divides Victoria into 43 squares, which correspond the place names on the index. The index also notes the distance between each settlement and Melbourne. The Whitehead map series of Victoria, published in Melbourne, was one of the most popular and influential cartographic records of the colony’s development between 1867 and 1897. Each issue provides a distinct, unique record, as each edition was extensively updated to reflect progressive stages of Victoria’s dramatic development. The present 1869 edition is the one of the earliest editions and the last to capture the colony during the period of the Gold Rush proper. Historical Context: The Victoria Gold Rush Whitehead’s map of Victoria is an important record of region created towards the end of the Victoria Gold Rush (1851-1869). This dramatic event not only transformed Victoria from a sleepy backwater into the pride of the British Empire, but it radically advanced Australia as whole and led to great improvements to the British economy. In terms of the creation of wealth and the movement of people due to a mineral strike, the Victoria Gold Rich was second only to the California Gold Rush of 1848-55, with which it shares many similarities. Prior to the publication of the strike of gold in Victoria in 1851, the region was remote and considered to be a relatively unpromising backwater of New South Wales. The first enduring permanent European settlement in the region was founded at Portland on the western coast in 1834, followed in short order by Melbourne, on Port Phillip, in 1835. The Port Phillip area, owing to its fine natural harbor and benevolent climate, soon attracted settlers and by 1840 Melbourne had a population of 10,000. The strike of gold in 1851 caused an international sensation as thousands of Europeans flocked to the region in search of riches, either in gold itself or from profiting from the influx of people. Anticipating great change, the British government agreed to the demands of settlers of the so-called Port Phillip District to ceded from New South Wales. On July 1, 1851, the colony of Victoria was formally created. The transformation was astounding. Melbourne grew from having a population of 29,000 in 1851 to over 123,000 in 1854! The population of Victoria grew from 75,000 in 1851 to 500,000 in 1861, and to around 700,000 by 1869. Fittingly, the Victorian Gold Discovery Committee wrote in 1854: "The discovery of the Victorian Goldfields has converted a remote dependency into a country of world wide fame; it has attracted a population, extraordinary in number, with unprecedented rapidi

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Le Verrier").

      O. O., 21. V. 1869 [?]. - ½ S. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. An den Physiker Jules Antoine Lissajous (1822-1880). - Le Verrier war 1845 die Berechnung der Planetenbahn des Neptun gelungen, die er durch Beobachtungen von Störungen im Umlauf des Uranus ermittelt hatte. Auf diesen Berechnungen aufbauend, beobachtete im Jahr darauf Johann Gottfried Galle erstmals den Planeten am Okular seines Teleskops auf der Berliner Sternwarte. "Später versuchte Le Verrier mit der gleichen Methode, Bahnstörungen des Merkur (Periheldrehung) zu erklären, postulierte die Existenz eines Planeten innerhalb der Merkurbahn und nannte diesen Vulkan. Astronomen in aller Welt versuchten, diesen Planeten zu finden, jedoch ohne Erfolg. 1915 bewies jedoch Albert Einstein mit der Allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie, daß sich die Bahnstörungen allein durch das Schwerkraftfeld der Sonne erklären lassen" (Wikipedia). Neben seinen Forschungen zur Himmelsmechanik ging Le Verrier auch "als Erfinder der Wetterkarte in die Geschichte ein. Er baute auf telegraphisch mitgeteilten Daten eine Wettervorhersage auf, erstmals für den 19. Februar 1855, 10 Uhr, für Frankreich, die er der Pariser Akademie der Wissenschaften vortrug. In der Folge entstand der meteorologische Dienst in Frankreich" (ebd.). Sein Name ist einer der 72 auf dem Eiffelturm verewigten. - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr.

        [BENT'S FORT, COLORADO TERRITORY]

      [Bent's Fort in southeastern Colorado, 1869. Two short closed tears at the extreme edges, and a tiny chip in the lower right corner, not affecting the image. Archival matting. Excellent displayable condition. A very fine and finished pencil drawing of Bent's Fort, on the Arkansas River in southeastern Colorado Territory, one of the very few images of this legendary western fort, once the center of the fur trading empire built by brothers George and William Bent. It depicts the once important trading post during its last commercial phase, as a stagecoach station for the Barlow-Sanderson Overland Mail & Express Company on the route from Kansas City to Santa Fe. The surviving structures of the adobe stronghold are seen in a deteriorating state, barnyard animals roaming the grounds, the walls and gates falling, tended by a lone agent. It is possibly the last image of the original Bent's Fort, of which few images survive in any form. Bent's Fort was constructed in 1833 by Bent, St. Vrain & Company, the largest fur trading and commercial firm in the Southwest. The company developed a complex business network as part of the Santa Fe trade, selling blankets from New Mexico and buffalo robes from the Plains, driving Mexican sheep through to Missouri, trading in horses and mules, and trading goods to Indians. Just on the American side of the then boundary with Mexico, it was in a perfect location to serve as a trade nexus. At the same time it served as a base for U.S. government exploring and military expeditions such as those of Kearny, Dodge, Fremont, and Abert. With the end of the Mexican-American War and the American annexation of New Mexico, the fort lost its strategic significance, and the proprietors were struck a serious blow when the senior partner, Charles Bent, the provisional American governor of New Mexico, was murdered in Taos in 1847. In 1849 his brother, William Bent, offered to sell the fort to the United States, but, perceiving the government's very low counter-offer as an insult, he set fire to his stores of gun powder, destroying many of the buildings, and abandoned the fort. From 1849 through 1861, Bent's Fort was unoccupied and allowed to deteriorate. Barlow-Sanderson operated the stagecoach station from 1861 until 1881, after which settlers in the region began cutting away adobe from the fort for use in their own buildings. An Arkansas River flood in 1921 completed the destruction of the few remaining ruins. Bent's Fort has since been reconstructed on its original foundations by the National Park Service and designated a National Historic Site. Very few images of Bent's Fort survive, despite its key role in the Santa Fe and fur trades at their height. A detailed plan and view of the fort in James W. Abert's report of his 1845 western expedition are the best known depictions of the fort, and these, along with the archeological evidence, provided the basis for the Park Service reconstruction. It has been suggested that the monogram in the lower corner of this picture is that of John Frederick Kensett, a leading painter of the Hudson River School and an artist skilled in small pencil drawings, learned in his career as an engraver. Kensett made on-the-spot sketches of the Fort during his 1870 trip to Colorado Territory with fellow Hudson River School painters Worthington Whittredge and Sanford Robinson Gifford. Only four of the pencil sketches absolutely identifiable as by Kensett survive from this Colorado trip, and we make no attribution of the present drawing. This very fine drawing of Bent's Fort is unrecorded in the ART INVENTORIES CATALOG of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, unknown to the archivist at Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site, and unpublished. One of the few depictions of a major historic landmark of the West, the drawing is a significant addition to the art history of Colorado.

Faire rire, chose plus grave : Mission. Mission, fonction, tout est là. Ou là. Là ou là, tyrolienne. Passons ». Chaque numéro est consacré à un sujet précis (idée qui fut reprise par la suite par le Paris illustré, mais dans un esprit qui ne fut pas uniquement caricatural) ; La Parodie précisait en effet dans son numéro du 4 juillet : «.cette feuille amusante et éminemment fantaisiste reproduit en charge l'événement du jour, la pièce ou le roman en vogue, le salon, l'actualité ». C'est ainsi que les numéros furent successivement intitulé : Le Salon de 1869, Le Théâtre, Le Boulevard, Les livres, Bade, La Féerie.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Dresden, 14. VII. 1869. - 3½ SS. 8vo. "Herzlichen Sängergruß zuvor! Schon sind 8 Wochen vorüber, seit wir uns im lieben Nürnberg sahen und sprachen, und erst heute kann ich Ihnen Mittheilungen in Bezug auf das beabsichtigte Sängerfest in Dresden im Jahr 1865 machen, selbige sind aber, wie Sie ersehen werden, der Art, daß dasselbe nunmehr als gesichert zu betrachten ist, und daß wir unsere Blicke auf keine andere Stadt zu richten nöthig haben. Nach meiner Rückkehr von Nürnberg ersuchte ich den Vorstand des Dr. allg. Sängervereins, Hr Prof. Dr. Löwe, eine Abgeordneten-Versammlung einzuberäumen, welcher ich mein Referat - die Nürnberger Verhandlungen wegen des Festes betreffend - verlesen und übergeben wollte. Eine solche kam erst im Juni zu Stande. Mit größter Aufmerksamkeit ward mein Referat angehört [ ]". - Otto studierte Theologie, Philosophie und Musik in Leipzig und wurde 1827 Musiklehrer am Blochmannschen Musikinstitut in Dresden. 1830-75 war er Kantor an der dortigen Kreuzkirche und Dirigent der Dresdner Liedertafel. - Auf Briefpapier mit gepr. Namenszug.

        New Tracks in North America, A Journal of Travel and Adventure Whilst Engaged in a Survey for a Southern Railroad to the Pacific Ocean During 1867-8

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1869. First Edition. Two volumes, pp lxv, 236; vii, 322, complete with 20 colored lithograph plates, 3 botanical plates, woodcuts in the text, a colored folding map and a colored plate with three small maps. An attractive set, recased, with new endpapers but original cloth binding retained. Vol. I has a few pencil markings, one plate with repair to the verso, and one page with a corner missing, resulting in loss of a few characters of text. Vol. II very clean. Bell, a British physician, traveled to St. Louis in 1867 to study the principles of homeopathy. There he joined Palmer's Kansas Pacific Railway expedition (1868-69) in the informal capacity of both physician and photographer. The expedition sought the best route to extend the Railway across Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and southern California to the Pacific coast. Bell's description of his experiences is credited for its scholarship and readability. Part II includes a lengthy section on "The Native Races of New Mexico," in which Bell "traces the migration northward of the Aztec race, driven by Spanish cruelty, with much ingenuity, by the ruins of their popular architecture" (Field 109). The folding map shows all of the West beyond the 100th meridian and south of the 42nd parallel as well as Mexico north of the 26th parallel. Wheat comments that it "has a distinctly modern aspect, since it applies different colors to varying elevations of the land." After the expedition, Bell and Palmer became business partners, together founding the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad as well as the city of Colorado Springs and many smaller enterprises in central Colorado. Streeter 181; Howes B-330; Graff 246; Farqhuar 25.

        HE KNEW HE WAS RIGHT

      1869 - With Sixty-four Illustrations by Marcus Stone. [In Two Volumes.] London: Strahan and Company, 1869. Original blind-stamped green cloth. First Edition in book form. Louis Trevelyan "knew he was right" about his young wife's infidelity. 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]~This was one of the eight Trollope novels that were initially serialized in parts -- issued in 32 weekly wrappered parts (also available as eight monthly parts), beginning in October 1867 and ending in May 1869. There was one full-page plate plus one initial vignette by Marcus Stone in each weekly part -- hence a total of 64 illustrations, as indicated on the title pages. The publisher Virtue gave Trollope extremely generous terms in order to be chosen to publish this novel -- too generous: Virtue "went under" after the 29th part, after which another publisher Strahan issued the remaining few -- as well as this two-volume publication in the final month of serialization, using the exact same leaves and illustrations.~This is a very good-plus set, perhaps near-fine, with very minor shelf-wear at the extremities and one little dent on a spine; the delicate original pale yellow endpapers are still present. In our experience this novel seems to be scarcer in the original cloth than most of Trollope's other illustrated (i.e. serialized) novels. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 31.

He also created a series of stereoscopic images, all quite scarce. These three examples are all from the Utah section of the line, just north of Salt Lake City. 1) No. 47.

Head of the spine of volume V with loss, the contents of all but the last few volumes loose between the boards with the gutta percha bindings having perished as is usual, just one or two leaves with some marginal creasing, else very good. A complete set of the first ten years of Vanity Fair caricatures of the great and the good of the day, illustrated by the likes of Spy (Leslie Ward) and Ape (Carlo Pellegrini) et al. This period includes many statesman such as D'Israeli (twice) and Gladstone as well as authors (Tennyson, Browning, Wilkie Collins, Trollope), artists (Millais, Ruskin, Doré, J. M. Whistler, Tenniel), scientists (Darwin, Owen, Murchison) and the musician Richard Wagner and the explorer H.M. Stanley. The set also includes two of the famous portraits of cricketers, inevitably the most famous cricketer of his day - Sir W.G. Grace - plus Frederick Robert Spofforth - "the Demon Bowler". A wonderful collection of these iconic images of late 19th century British high society and culture.

        'The Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak' [by Jacob Lutz]. Mountain with with lake and Indian encampment in foreground.

      [Published by Thomas McLean, 1869]. 19.25 x 32.25in to mount opening.. Chromolithograph, laid down on backing board, with old mount, a few tiny surface flaws, some very faint spotting in sky, This was the first of Bierstadt's 'Great Pictures' completed in 1863 that brought him fame and fortune. As his rival Frederic Church did, the format for a 'Great Picture' was to produce a large panoramic landscape (here 6 x 10 feet) and exhibit it to a wide public at a one picture touring exhibition, which was accompanied by explanatory brochures and promoted by reproductions. The original painting was purchased by the English railway magnate James McHenry for $25,000. Even though privately owned it was exhibited at McLean's London gallery in 1866. In 1867 Bierstadt took it with 'A Storm in the Rocky Mountains, Mt Rosalie' to Osborne House to show Queen Victoria. They were both exhibited at McLean's in 1868 when the production of this chromolithograph was under way. These prints were sold laid down to emulate paintings. The surface even recreates the cracklure of oil paintings. The announcement of this chromolithograph with its companion was first made in January 1868 but they were not issued until autumn 1869. Accounts of their production vary one suggesting twenty stones were employed and another thirty. The original painting is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This print is a sumptuous reproduction of one of the finest early paintings to depict the American West. Commenting on these prints which were then being exhibited at Goupil's of New York, the 'Post' newspaper (4 Oct. 1869) wrote 'They are unquestionably the finest examples of chromolithographic art'. The mountain is named after Frederick W. Lander [1821-1862] whose surveying party to the Rocky Mountains Bierstadt joined in 1859, when the artist made the preliminary drawings for this 'Great Picture'. Reference: ANDERSON, N. & FERBER, L.S. 'Albert Bierstadt Art & Enterprise' Exhibition Catalogue. Brooklyn Museum, 1991. This chromolithograph is discussed on pp. 274-275, figure 89, and illustrated in colour, Plate 78 on p. 291.
