        He Knew He Was Right

      1869. First Edition . TROLLOPE, Anthony. He Knew He Was Right. London: Strahan, 1869. Two volumes. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter polished dark brown calf, red morocco spine labels, marbled boards and and endpapers. $1500.First edition in book form of TrollopeÂ’s widely praised novel of obsession and madness, with 64 wood-engraved illustrations (32 full page).Nathaniel Hawthorne captured the essence of Anthony TrollopeÂ’s considerable appeal in noting that his novels “precisely suit my taste; solid, substantialÂ… as if some giant had hewn a great lump out of the earth and put it under a glass case, with all its inhabitants going about their daily business, and not suspecting that they were made a show of.” Trollope is said to have been inspired by ShakespeareÂ’s Othello in He Knew He Was Right. “One of TrollopeÂ’s best but least-known novelsÂ… it achieves what Henry James, who admired the book, has called ‘an impressive completeness of misery” (Hennessey, 291). The novelÂ’s focus on the obsessions of his protagonist produces “a narrative that is at once a ‘saneÂ’ realistic novel and a ‘madÂ’ Shakespearean tragedy” (Oberhalman, Studies in English Literature). Written from November 1867-June 1868, and serialized in 32 weekly numbers from October 17, 1868-May 22, 1869. With 64 wood-engraved illustrations after Marcus Stone (32 full page). Sadleir 31. Owner bookplates.Text and plates fine, only slight wear to boards. An extremely good copy of this major 19th-century novel.

        Holy Bible

      1869. BIBLE. The Holy Bible. London: George E. Eyre and William Spottiswoode, circa 1869. Quarto, contemporary full blind-tooled brown morocco rebacked with original spine laid down, brass clasp and catch, beveled edges, all edges gilt. $3500.Handsomely bound 19th-century King James Bible, extra-illustrated with six mounted albumen photographs by pioneering Holy Land photographer Francis Firth, with brass clasp.This volume contains a late-19th century edition of the magisterial King James translation of the Bible (first published 1611) extra-illustrated with 20 mounted albumen photographs of the Holy Land by Francis Frith. A founding member of the Liverpool Photographic Society who is considered “the most successful of the photographic entrepreneurs following the calotype era” (Parr & Badger, 18), “Frith is the most prominent of the early photographers of Egypt and the Holy Land. He built his own 16 by 20-inch wet-collodion plate camera, put it in his wicker camper/darkroom, and in 1856 embarked on his first trip up the Nile. The result was a series of pictures that still amaze in terms in their clarity, precision and visual impact. His direct eye-level frontal photography produced some of the most exquisitely detailed images of his day” (McDarrah & McDarrah, 156-7). “His photographs of the landscape and monuments were taken under dangerous and difficult conditions. He slept in tombs and caves and was attacked by wild dogs and brigands; inside an unventilated tent he worked in desert temperatures with collodion chemicals that boiled on the glass plate negatives” (DNB). Frith’s images in this Bible include two views of the Sinai wilderness, the convent at Mount Carmel, the stone pyramid of Dashûr, Banias and the Parthenon. Contemporary family record to front free endpaper. Brass clasp engraved with owner’s initials.Occasional light foxing. A distinguished Bible in nearly fine condition.

        Malay Archipelago

      1869. First Edition . WALLACE, Alfred Russel. The Malay Archipelago: The Land of the Orang-Utan, and the Bird of Paradise. London: Macmillan, 1869. Two volumes. Octavo, original gilt-stamped green cloth. $7800.First edition of Wallace's classic account of his journey to the Malay Archipelago, ""on the basis of artistic format, literary style, and scientific merit, clearly one of the finest scientific travel books ever written"" (DSB).""Since he had not solved the perplexing question of how species evolve while in the Amazon region [1848-52], Wallace decided to venture once more to the tropics, this time to Southeast Asia and the Malay Archipelago. Securing passage on a government vessel, Wallace departed in 1854 for explorations that lasted eight years and covered between 14,000 and 15,000 miles. The boundaries of the range of his explorations were the Aru Islands to the east; Malacca, Malaya, to the west; the northern tip of Celebes to the north; and as far south as southern Timor. The enormous quantity of materials gathered there—about 127,000 specimens of natural history—enabled him to publish scores of fundamental scientific papers on a broad range of topics. These works alone would have established him as one of the greatest English naturalists of his age, but his classic natural history book, The Malay Archipelago, earned him an international reputation that has endured to this day. On the basis of artistic format, literary style, and scientific merit, it is clearly one of the finest scientific travel books ever written. From his first arrival in the Malayan region Wallace had decided to gather precise scientific data on groups of animals in order to work out their geographical distribution and consequently to throw light on their origins through evolutionary processes. He kept a notebook on evolution, here designated as his 'Species Notebook.' His first explicit, published evolutionary statements drew on those materials"" (DSB). Complete with wood-engraved frontispieces and six engraved plates, two lithographed folding maps tracing Wallace's journey, and numerous in-text maps and illustrations. With publisher's ads dated December 1868 in Volume I. Plate at Volume II, p. 41, actually bound at p. 176. Norman 2176. Bookplate of Colonel William Slaney Kenyon-Slaney, a long-serving MP who remains best known as the first player ever to score a goal in an international soccer match. Contemporary ink library signatures. Binder ticket.Interiors generally fine with only a few spots of foxing, a bit of expert restoration to bindings, slightest rubbing to gilt, cloth quite bright. Near-fine condition.

        The South-Eastern District of South Australia: Its Resources and Requirements.

      Adelaide: published by the author at the offices of The South Australian newspaper, 1869. Octavo, with the large folding map beautifully preserved; original gilt blocked brown cloth (a bit worn at extremities), spine lettered by hand at a later date; front endpaper inscribed 'To James Moorehouse, with the compliments of the author Ebenezer Ward...', bookplates of Edward Angas Johnson and Charles Glover and Adelaide binders ticket. Pleasing association copy, inscribed by the author to the Melbourne Anglican bishop James Moorehouse. The Australian Dcitionary of Biography records 'the second bishop of Melbourne had intellectual distinction, administrative skill, eloquence and leadership; he also smoked a pipe and walked with a bulldog'.Published to promote the benefits of South Australian settlement, the salient feature of this book is the large lithographic map of Adelaide and surrounds, with boundaries, leases and holdings demarcated (thus forming a good historical record of the growth of the settlement). Photolithographed by F. S. Crawford during December 1867, it is technically accomplished and typical of the high standard of cartographic printing at the Adelaide Surveyor Generals office from the mid 1850's onwards. The book includes a meticulous three page index for the folding map.Of additional interest are the 64 pages of advertisements, effectively forming a concise trade directory of Adelaide in 1869. This copy has passed through the hands of two notable Australian bibliophiles: surgeon and South Australian resident Dr. Edward Angas Johnson (the nephew of George French Angas), and Adelaide city council alderman Charles Glover, an assiduous collector of Australiana and ethnological artefacts.

        Hong Kong (Gambling Houses).

      [London]. House of Commons. 9 August1869. 93pp. Original wrappers, quarto. String tie. Good copy. These voluminous papers on government-licensed gambling houses in Hong Kong in the 1860s contain the stirring exchanges between the colony's governor, Sir Richard Graves McDonnell, and the Secretary of State for the Colonies, the Earl of Buckingham and Chandos. This was a subject of major importance, given the marked proclivity of the Chinese for gambling and the associated problems to which it gave rise for the prevention of crime and the good government of the Colony. McDonnell's despatches reveal an able and strong-minded governor who did not agree with the view being taken by the Colonial Office of this subject, which, he felt, was being unduly influenced by the English lobby, spear-headed by the influential Standing Committee of the Social Science Association at the instigation of two disgruntled Hong Kong personalities, the Colony's former Attorney-General, T. Chisholm Anstey, and Edward Murrow, the editor of a Hong Kong newspaper. Both these men had been involved in the acrimonious public disputes following allegations of questionable behaviour made on each other by senior officials in the Colony of the late 1850s. Macdonnell considered that they were unduly biased, and should not be allowed to injure the case for continuing the system of licensing gambling houses which was, in his view, the lesser of two evils, and brought some tangible benefits to the maintenance of law and order. [The National Association for the Promotion of Social Science (NAPSS), often known as the Social Science Association, was a British reformist group founded in 1857 by Lord Brougham. It pursued topics in public health, industrial relations, penal reform, and female education. It was in existence for about 30 years, being dissolved in 1886: from Wikipedia].

Leconte de Lisle est grand poète aussi, et d'une si forte originalité qu'il est devenu chef d'école. On lui doit une vraie reconnaissance ? il faudrait que ce fût une reconnaissance nationale. » Cet envoi, sous forme d'hommage, rend compte de l'estime et de l'admiration réciproque que se portaient les deux auteurs.   Très bel hommage littéraire sur un exemplaire joliment relié.

      Justus Perthes, Gotha - Original blindstamped cloth with titles in gilt on spine, all but 1846 with printed endpapers, in the publisher's dust-wrappers with printed paper spine labels; variously paginated. The later volumes are largely fine, but 1846 has both hinges cracked, being held on only by the cords; 1868 with a paper tear at the front pastedown. The jackets for 1846 and 1853 show dampstaining, the one for 1851 has an age-toned spine; 1846 has a detached front panel and is lacking a couple of it's french-fold flaps, 1851 with tears and light chiopping, 1863 and 1868 with larger chips, the rest with light chipping and some tears, but overall an attractive set. Interesting to note the changes in the jackets over the two decades we have here, as the color changed from dusky violet in the '40s and '50s to dark blue in the mid-'50s to a lighter blue in the later '60s. The publisher (thankfully) abandoned the french-fold-style jacket sometime after 1846 and before 1851. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.

        Versuch eines Systems der Elemente nach ihren Atomgewichten und chemischen Functionen

      1869. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. In: Journal für praktische Chemie 106, 1869, 8vo. p.251. ----Sparrow 147 - The first appearance of Mendeleev's periodic table in a western journal. Mendeleev's work on Osnovy khimii led him directly in March 1869 to his formulation of the periodic law and table, in which the elements were grouped by atomic weight and grouped according to their chemical and physical properties. He famously used his table to predict accurately the elements which later came to be called gallium, germanium and scandium. Very Good.

        Brigadier-General Thomas Francis Meagher: His Political and Military Career.

      Glasgow: Cameron & Ferguson, circa, 1869. Small octavo, fine in recent cloth with the publisher's green illustrated wrappers and advertisements bound in. Scarce biography of Irish nationalist Thomas Meagher (1823-1867), transported to Van Diemen's Land for his role in the Young Ireland movement of 1848.Renowned for his personal charisma and powerful oratory, Meagher was born into a prosperous family and enjoyed a successful political career. In 1848 he was charged with leading the Young Ireland movement and inciting rebellion, a capital conviction transmuted to transportation for life. He arrived in Hobart in October 1849, where he quickly married and obtained a ticket-of-leave, only to escape the colony within a matter of years (arriving in New York in May of 1852). His time in Australia and subsequent escape is detailed in a chapter of this book.As a citizen of the United States, Meagher is best remembered as a Union officer in command of an Irish brigade, and as sometime Governor of Montana. He drowned in the Missouri River in 1867, and was quickly immortalised as a paradigm Irish patriot in biographies such as this one.

        Our American Cousin: A Drama, in 3 Acts

      [New York:] Printed, But Not Published, 1869, 1869. First edition. Fine copy.. 12mo, modern blue paper board, black leather label on the upper board, gilt lettering, 46 pages. The most famous play (of many) by Tom Taylor (1817-1880) and arguably the most famous play of the 19th century: it was being performed at Ford's Theater, Washington, D.C., on April 14, 1865, when halfway through Act III John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln - thus immortalizing a farcical comedy which otherwise would have been long since forgotten. The American rights to Our American Cousin were purchased by New York theater owner Laura Keene in 1858. It was immensely popular and was still being performed more than ten years later, but there was no printed version of it until this one in 1869. Keene had shrewdly stated on the title-page that it was "Printed, but not published" - a step taken to protect her valuable rights from unscrupulous theater owners who could produce plays that had been "published" because copyright laws did not give them adequate protection. On the verso of the title-page is list of the cast at the first performance at Ms. Keene's theater on October 15, 1858, which included Joseph Jefferson. Contemporary manuscript notes on the front blank, listing other plays by Tom Taylor.

        Osnovy khimii [i.e. The Principles of Chemistry]

      St. Petersburg, 1869-71. Part I: [4], III, [1], 816 pp., 151 ills. (1869); Part II: [4], [1], 951, [1] pp., 28 ills., 1 folding table (1871). 8vo. Woodcut illustrations, folding letterpress table in Part II. Contemporary quarter-leather. Rebacked. Blind lettering on the spine. The folding table is backed with tissue paper at the joints. Inscriptions in text. Half-title lacks a small piece (vol.1), restored, not affecting the text. Provenance: from the library of Alexander Petrovich Mikhnevich (1853-1912), stamp at the end of Contents of vol.2. Mikhnevich was an engineer, teacher and writer. His margins could be found throughout the book, especially interesting those are in vol.1. where he added some elements to the table adding the phrase 'somewhat different table in the new edition' (in pencil). First edition. Extremely rare. The periodic table of elements is a fundamental tool in the understanding of chemistry today. It categorizes elements by atomic number, electron configurations and recurring chemical properties. Some elements were only discovered because the Table existed, and it is now impossible to imagine chemistry without it. It was introduced by Dmitry Mendeleev, and it was printed for the first time in this very book, The Principles of Chemistry, in 1869-1871. Mendeleev was the first to recognize that the apparent randomness of elements fitted into a system. Furthermore, he suggested that the gaps in his system would later be filled with elements yet unknown to the scientific world. He was proved right. He had rejected the common practice of placing elements in the order of their atomic weight. He put the elements in order of their nuclear charge before such a phenomenon had been discovered (it was not adequately understood until the existence of protons and neutrons had been proven). The 'discovery' (or construction) of the table is a fine example of how the human mind managed to leap beyond contemporary understanding to lay the foundations on which later progress was built. Mendeleev didn't achieve instant recognition for what he had done. Robert Bunsen, the celebrated German chemist of the time, rebuked one of his students who had tried to explain to him the profound significance of the discovery: «Don't get to me with these guesses. The same 'regularities' can be found in stock-market reports!» It was not until the late 19th and early 20th centuries that Mendeleev's theory was finally acknowledged. In the first decade of the 20th century, Mendeleev was nominated for the Nobel Prize three times (1905, 1906 and 1907) and it was for purely circumstantial reasons that he did not receive it. He opposed the Nobel brothers' politics in respect of Russia's oil industry, and having failed to win twice, he was robbed of the Prize after being awarded it on his third nomination, because of his untimely death at the age of 72.
