        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 Homer...gives 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. .

        Autograph Manuscript signed ("George Cooper"), fair copy, of the lyrics to the song "Sweet Genevieve"

      [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.

        Lake Pepin Fish-Chowder, in Letters to General Spinner

      New York: H.D. McIntyre & Co., 201 William Street, 1869. First edition. 141, [2, ads] pp. 1 vols. Small 8vo. Brick cloth, gilt stamped on upper cover only. Slightly rubbed. Near fine. Fishing in Minnesota, 1869 A series of letters on the glories of Minnesota fishing from this former Civil War officer to Gen. Francis E. Spinner (1802-1890), who served as Treasurer of the United States under Presidents Lincoln, Johnson, and Grant. First printed in Porter's Spirit of the Times to meet a growing post-war market of tourists and travelers eager to find the best fishing spots, Gibbs' little book spread the word about the joys of fishing Minnesota's lakes and rivers. It has never been re-printed, and is now rare on the market."And many learned about Minnesota fishing in the late 1860s when ex-Civil War Officer Oliver Gibbs wrote a series of letters to General Spinner, then United States treasurer, that were printed in The Spirit of the Times and later collected into a volume called Lake Pepin Fish-Chowder [?] Railing against the 'pot fishers' who netted fish by the wagonload, Gibbs promoted fishing with rod and reel" (Sheehy). Great content and fine story-telling, a neglected work from a formative time in American sport.

        IMPORTANT 19TH CENTURY HERBARIUM ALBUM CONTAINING c 360 MAINLY IRISH MOSS SPECIMENS INCLUDING MANY "Specimens not previously described as being indigenous to that Island" WITH LOCATION NOTES, DATES AND BRYOLOGISTS

      Unknown: Not Appropriate, 1869. An important 19th Century Herbarium album of predominantly Irish mosses, compiled by David Orr, containing many specimens not previously described from Ireland, and therefore historically, highly significant (though the reliabilty of some of Orr's specimens is questioned - see below). "These specimens marked thus X were found and identified in Ireland by David Orr not being previously described as being indigenous to that Island" Of the c. 360 specimens 53 are marked X; arranged on 27 sheets. All specimens collected between 1846 & 1869, mostly by Orr with contributions from other recognised contemporary Bryologists [see notes below]. This collection was assembled by David Orr, Assistant to Dr Moore at Botanic Garden, Dublin; each specimen mounted and pencil labelled with a facing page giving details of the specimen, location, collector and date found. It clearly reflects Orr's passion for the subject and represents hundreds of hours of field work, but is not entirely unique and may have been produced on commission. Orr is also a figure of certain notoriety as it is believed he falsified some records which throws into question many of his other, probably genuine records. The album has suffered from exposure to damp at some time, the binding and paper is cockled and uneven, toned in places, but no damp staining and the dried pressed specimens remain in good condition. There are several small worm holes but these do not interfere with the contents. The card binding is worn and missing the original closure strap and title label, but all pages remain firmly bound in. "Orr, David (?- 1892) Collected mosses in Antrim, Dublin and Wicklow. Plants at BM(NH), also Dublin, letters in Wilson correspondence at BM(NH)" OTHER CONTRIBUTERS OF SPECIMENS INCLUDE: - "Davies, J.H.(1838-1909) Mosses at Trinity College, Dublin. Donaldson, G (1860s) County Antrim at Oxford. Fergusson, Rev. J. Letters at BM(NH), Plants at Oxford. Hunt, George Edward (1841-1873) Mosses at BM(NH) Letters at Kew. Jackson, John (1837-1920) Keeper ,Kew Museums 1858-1901. Kirk, Sir John (1832-1922) MD Explorer and naturalist (Livingston's Expedition 1858). Moore, David (1807-1879) Botanist and Curator Botanic Garden, Glasnevin 1838. Nowell, Rev. J. (1802-1867) Bryologist. Wilson, William (1799-1871) Described mosses for Hooker's Flora Antarctica, Plants and drawings at BM(NH) Letters at BM(NH). Wood, John (1813-1890) MD Bryologist, Plants and letters at Kew, in W. Wilson correspondence at BM(NH)". [Desmond, Ray; Dictionary of British and Irish Botanists and Horticulturalists]. Notes: - The National Botanic Gardens at Glasnevin, Dublin holds a very similar album with the title "A hand Herbarium of British and Irish Mosses arranged according to Wilson's Bryologia Britannica" and dated 29th 1873. This is a leather bound volume 15.5 x 19.5cm containing 47 leaves with 322 differentt specimens (taxa). So very similar to our album. For what purposes these collections were made is unknown as is the number of copies produced, but the emphasis on new records would suggest that their purpose was, at least, partly proselytic. Regarding Orr's reputation to falisfy records, can it really be that all of the 53 specimens in our album described as "not previously described as being indigenous to that Island" are fabricated? Throughout the history of science reputations have, often unfairly, sullied very good and pioneering work; does Orr's work fall into this category? Perhaps not, but either way this album is a small but important record in the history of Irish botany. Provenance: from the estate of the Marine Biologist T. Willcocks of The Plymouth Institution/Devon & Cornwall Natural History Society.. First Edition. Card Covers. Good/No Dust Jacket. 4to.

        Sammelband of 10 French Provincial Book Auction Catalogues / [ Recueil de Catalogues de ventes de Livres]

      Bordeaux, Dijon and Libourne, 1869-1883. 8vo. Together 8 provincial book auction catalogues in one volume: contemporary marbled boards (worn) rebacked with original spine and red label. Some foxing; wrappers and several title-pages were never bound in. An appealing copy. Sammelband of rare French book auction catalogues from Bordeaux, Dijon and Libourne. Early French provincial book sale catalogues are seldom seen on the market, or even in institutional collections. In the present volume, a good number are annotated with prices and some buyers' names in the margins. That the annotator and first owner of the Sammelband is known is of particular interest: The volume was assembled by Hippolyte Duthu, one of the principles in several sales recorded herein. Duthu was a little-known, but no less interesting provincial bookseller, originally from Dijon. In 1869 Duthu established himself in Bordeaux, first as the "commis-principal" (chief clerk) in the Maison Paul Chaumas, at that time directed by Duthu's mother-in-law, and then as her "successeur." His trajectory, apparently described here for the first time, is recorded in his solicitations for sale catalogues and priced catalogues in the "Feuilleton du Journal general de l'imprimerie et de la librairie," first on 28 Dec. 1872 (61e annee, 2e serie, no. 52, p. 1198) where he describes himself simply as an associate of the firm: "M. Hippolyte Duthu (Maison Chaumas, à Bordeaux), prie MM. les Libraires de la France et de l?'étranger de lui adresser les catalogues des ventes et les catalogues à prix marqués." Then, in the same trade journal, on 2 Sept. 1876 he placed another request for sale catalogues and priced catalogues (65e annee, 2e serie, no. 36, p. 1198), but this time he refers to himself as a "libraire": "M. Hippolyte Duthu, Libraire (30, allées d'0rléans, à Bordeaux), prie MM. les Libraires de France et de l'étranger de lui envoyer, comme par le passé, leurs Catalogues à prix marqués." Contents: 1.

        Concord Sketches

      Fields, Osgood & Co., Boston 1869 - Publisher's original burgundy cloth. Gilt-stamped boxed title on the front board. All edges gilt. A photographic title-page and twelve full-page photographs, mounted on card stock, are tipped in. (Abigail) May Alcott was Louisa May Alcott's sister, and the basis for Amy in "Little Women." Louisa wrote the preface and selected the captions for the photographs. There is a slight waviness to the text pages, as if the book was at one time exposed to humidity, though there is no stain or tidemark. The pages with the photographs, being on thicker stock, are unaffected. Divided into sections on Emerson, Hawthorne, Thoreau, and Alcott, the photographs include a sketch of Thoreau in his rowboat on Walden Pond. This large book, roughly 13 ½" x 11", cost a whopping ten dollars at the time of publication. Only 160 copies were printed and the book is, resultantly, quite scarce.

Frontispiece portrait photograph (albumen print) of artist Joseph Fagnani, and 9 albumen prints from portraits of American women by Fagnani, each sitter identified by an ink caption in a previous owner's hand. [56] pp. 1 vols. 6-5/8 x 5-3/4 inches (16.8 x 14.5 cm). Contemporary limp burgundy morocco, with a handwritten paper label affixed to the upper cover, reading: "American Beauties as Muses 1860-1870 (with names written by Leonie Jerome)" and gilt-lettered spine. Some wrinkling to mounts, small dampstain to lower part of gutter margins, but overall a good copy. With the bookplate of LEONIE [Jerome] LESLIE on the front pastedown, and that of her sister, JENNIE [Jerome] SPENCER CHURCHILL on the rear flyleaf. American Beauties and the Jerome Sisters In 1869, the Italian-American painter Joseph Fagnani's exhibition of the "Nine Muses" was held at the Somerville Art Gallery. A review of the show by the New York Times (Nov. 22, 1869) reads:"As just recognition rather than a flattering compliment of America female beauty, these pictures, apart from the strict consideration of their artistic merits, are full of interest, and, wherever they are taken, will be sure to attract much attention. We learn the muses are loudly called for in other quarter; and those who have not worshipped at their shrine, should, like good patriots, make haste to do so."Here, in this remarkable little album, Fagnani aims to highlight and emphasize the varying beauty of American women, at a time when the European ideal served as the sole model for American standards. All the more remarkable is this copy's extraordinary association with two of the most celebrated American beauties of its period, the Jerome sisters, Jennie (1854-1921) and Leonie (1859-1943). Daughters of New York financier Leonard Jerome, Jennie and Leonie would have been teenagers at the time of the Fagnani exhibition after the Civil War. The two were to become among the most famous beauties of their day and the toast of England: Jennie, when she married Lord Randolph Churchill, younger son of the Duke of Marlborough, in 1874; and Leonie, ten years later, when she married the baronet Sir John Leslie. Jennie, of course, soon became the mother of Winston Churchill; and Leonie was the mother of Shane Leslie. This album, with the actual identities of the sitters revealed by Leonie, represents perhaps the teenage aspirations of the two sisters, soon to be realized in high society. The original portraits are now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

        On the Origin of Species

      London: John Murray, 1869. 5th or later Edition . Original Cloth. Very Good Minus/No Jacket. 19 x 13 Cms (7.5" x 5"). PUBLISHING DETAILS: Fifth edition, tenth thousand of Darwin's great work, published by John Murray of London in 1969. 596 pages. Size; 19 x 13 cms (7.5" x 5"). Weight; 830g (1 pound 13 ounces).

The binding is generally tight and secure, having been neatly reinforced at the front hinge. The text and fold-out illustration are clean and free from foxing (see photos). The half-title page is torn and grazed and there is a stamp for the Skara Stifts Bibliotek to the front free endpaper. A still very presentable copy of this early edition, offered at a price for the collector on a budget. THE BOOK: 'can we doubt ... that individuals having any advantage, however slight, over others, would have the best chance of surviving and of procreating their kind?' In the Origin of Species, Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. His insistence on the immense length of the past and on the abundance of life-forms, present and extinct, dislodged man from his central position in creation and called into question the role of the Creator. He showed that new species are achieved by natural selection, and that absence of plan is an inherent part of the evolutionary process. Darwin's prodigious reading, experimentation, and observations on his travels fed into his great work, which draws on material from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters.

It is an infinite comfort to a man who is charged with the difficult task of fitting holes with their appropriate pegs to have the assistance of any one so competent as you are.

Very affectionately yours, Charles Dickens," signing with a fine flourish. Dickens had written to Morris on 20 November; Trollope did not take up the position at The Times.

        Rare Autograph Quotation Signed by English Novelist and Mystery Writer WILKIE COLLINS, Author of "the Moonstone" and "The Woman in White"

      1869 - COLLINS, WILKIE. (1824-1889). English novelist and one of the first mystery writers; author of The Moonstone and The Woman in White. AQS. ("Wilkie Collins"). 1p. 8vo. N.p., April 5, 1869. "Then I saw the raging sea, and the rollers tumbling in on the sand bank, and the driven rain sweeping over the waters like a flying garment and the yellow wilderness of the beach, with one solitary black figure standing on it ¿ the figure of Sergeant Cuff." Copied from The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins April 5th 1869. A close friend of Charles Dickens, with whom he maintained a lengthy personal and professional relationship, Collins is today considered one of the first and greatest of mystery writers. After his Woman in White, Collins's first popular success, was serialized in Dickens' periodical All the Year Round, Collins broke new literary ground with The Moonstone, also published by Dickens, serially, from January 4th to August 8th, 1868. The work, from which our quotation is taken, has the distinction of being the first English language detective novel and employs the "locked room" device introduced by Edgar Allan Poe in The Murders in the Rue Morgue (1841). Our contemporaneously written quotation mentions one of the novel's main characters, Scotland Yard detective Sergeant Cuff, at the point, in Chapter 19, where he discovers the servant girl Rosanna Spearman's footprint in the sand. Collins is still considered one of the first and greatest of mystery writers and influenced the work of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Dorothy Sayers, who proclaimed The Moonstone as "probably the very finest detective story ever written." Very scarce and desirable in this form. In very fine condition. * All our items are sent via Federal Express. Additional postage may be requested. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
