        Grant's bold franking signature on an envelope addressed to his friend, newspaperman George W. Childs, who helped fund Grant's Jersey Shore vacation cottage

      [Washington], c. 1869-1873. 5.75" x 3.25". "His franking signature, ""U.S. Grant,"" as President accomplished on a 5.75"" x 3.25"" with ""Executive Mansion"" engraved at the top right corner, addressed in his hand to ""Mr. Geo W. Childs Cor 22d & Walnut St. Philadelphia, Pa."" With a black Washington, October 17 cancellation. From the Edward Stern Collection. Offered with copies of the description and image of the frank as published in Stern's 1936 volume, History of the 'Free Franking' of Mail in the United States. Light to moderate soiling, several small tears along top margin do not affect text, else very good. Offered together with a large mounted albumen photograph, 10"" x 8"", by Pach Bros., New York, 1873, titled ""GEN. GRANT at GEO. W. CHILDS COTTAGE / LONG BRANCH 1873"". The image depicts Grant seated with his wife Julia and their friend, George W. Childs, at his cottage in Long Branch, New Jersey. Back layer of mount removed, photo service stamps and inked notations on verso, creased at corners, horizontal crease and small tear at bottom margin do little to detract from the overall presentation.Ulysses Grant was the last sitting President to enjoy the franking privilege. Due to rampant abuse, Congress outlawed the practice for all federal officials in 1873 (only to reinstate it for themselves soon afterwards). However sitting executives were never again bestowed this privilege. In 1864, together with Anthony Drexel, for $20,000, the Baltimore-born Childs (1829-1894) purchased the ailing Philadelphia Public Ledger which had seen its circulation drop over its Copperhead leanings. Childs changed the editorial policy to wholehearted support for the Union and he soon grew the paper into one of the most influential papers in the country. Childs was also widely known for his philanthropy. In 1884, he loaned Walt Whitman $500 to help him purchase his home in Camden, New Jersey. Childs also funded numerous monuments including a memorial fountain for William Shakespeare in Stratford-on-Avon as well as a monument to Edgar Allen Poe in Baltimore.Childs was also a close friend of Ulysses Grant. In 1869, he, together with Drexel, George Pullman, and Moses Taylor pooled their money to purchase a summer cottage for the Grant family in Long Branch, New Jersey in 1869. Grant's cottage was located directly next to Childs' and the pair enjoyed numerous summers together at the Jersey Shore. The franking signature comes from the esteemed collection of Edward Stern. Offered with copies of the description and image of the frank as published in Stern's 1936 volume, History of the 'Free Franking' of Mail in the United States."

Précieux envoi autographe de Leconte de Lisle à George Sand : « à Madame G. Sand hommage de respectueuse admiration Leconte de Lisle » Dès ses premiers écrits, Leconte de Lisle se plaça directement sous l'influence de George Sand, à qui il dédia deux poèmes de jeunesse : à George Sand et Lélia dans la solitude. Cette filiation se transforma progressivement en admiration réciproque, puisque George Sand rendra hommage à l'auteur dans un article du Temps du 31 juillet 1872 : « M. 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.

        (3) Manuscript Letters - A Naval Officer's Account of Three (3) Shipwrecks

      Great Britain, 1869. Great Britain, 1869. Manuscript recollections of a British naval officer in which are described three fateful and consecutive voyages having taken place circa 1869-70, the first ship being wrecked near Cape São Roque on the coast of Brazil, one set ablaze by its cargo of coal near India, and another swept away and destroyed by a hurricane upon landing on Réunion Island. 8vo. 31 pages combined, comprising two separate accounts and a summary linking them. Single leafs, assorted stationery, measuring approximately 20 x 25 cm. Some age-toning and creasing, otherwise in very good condition, Adventure, catastrophe, and relief from foreign vessels, are an ongoing theme in three separate voyages taken by one man in 1869-70, which ultimately resulted in three devastated ships. The writer is not identified, although his accounts suggest that he was either a captain or first master to the captain. He and his crew are British, and working the trade routes. The writer finding himself shipwrecked on rocks of Cape of Saint Roch in 1869, disputing and pleading with Brazilian coast guards for passage (with the aid of local fisherman as translator), the first voyage had departed London for Australia, but encountered difficulties along the coast of South America. A most interesting adventure ensued, the following day sailing by river to Macau, in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, and from proceeding to Pernambuco on a merchant's steamer. On board he notices prisoners being conveyed to the penal colony of Fernando Noronha, wealthy Brazilian slave owning plantation owners, and a young African boy performing difficult duties onboard. On land, a domestic dispute over a woman results in a murder. At last, after much adventure, at Pernambuco the crew dispersed by finding employment on other British vessels. [8vo. 9 pages, being an recollection of a voyage to Brazil and a shipwreck, circa 1869.] Excerpts from the manuscript: "... we made Cape São Roque, the NE corner of Brazil and had to tack... one night about 10 o'clock the ship struck violently on a rock below the water... the ship's bottom being crushed in so that she was immediately filled with water, but fortunately for us remained fast on the rocks..." "... on shore... were Guarda Costas, and the officer in charge would not permit us to proceed any further... we were shipwrecked British sailors, we would do no harm, but there were arms in the boat ready for use..." "At this time slavery had not been wholly abolished in Brazil. In these hot countries where slavery existed, the white men did not so much to raise the moral standard of living among those who did the daily work. After two days stay there, we sailed on the schooner for Ceará, where we arrived two days later..." "... on deck there were stores, male and female, some prisoners on their way to Fernando Noronha [Fernando de Noronha, a penal colony of Brazil]... there were also... Ladies & Gentlemen... Brazilian planters from up country districts... Every morning a negro boy carried a large iron pail into the saloon, in there was some burning coal from the furnace, on top of this some well tarred rope were placed... he carried the pail with its smoldering contents into each sleeping cabin and stirred up the contents... drove away flies and mosquitoes" "... This was 40 years ago when the world was smaller and intercourse between far countries difficult, tedious and expensive in comparison with travelling either by sea or land in 1905... After we arrived in Pernambuco, we were quickly dispersed, as there were several British vessels there acquiring officers & seamen, so the services of our crew were in demand." The second voyage, which began on an unnamed "magnificent frigate" of British origin, carrying a cargo of coal from Scotland to Bombay, resulted in the frigate catching fire from her cargo and burning at sea. Her crew was rescued by a French vessel named Emma, which was en route to Calcutta, then returning to Réunion. [8vo. 12 pages, being a recollection of a voyage on which the ship was consumed by conflagration at sea, circa 1869-70] Excerpts from the manuscript: "... we left the Clyde in tow of a steam tug, bound to Bombay, with a cargo of 1600 tons of coal. After passing the Cumbrac's a fine northerly wind sprung up... I was much pleased with the way our crew went about their work, so smart and quietly... I am writing of 35 years ago... Friday morning at 6 o'clock we had cast off from Greenoch pier... then being in the blue Atlantic the steward having occasion to go down to the lower store room found four young lads who had stowed themselves away, having bribed the old night watchman..." "We had a tedious passage to the Equator... we came up to a barque with her British flg up, Union down... They were quite out of food having been on reduced allowance for some time..." "... one morning a strong smell of coal gas pervaded throughout the ship... our cargo of coals was on fire from spontaneous combustion... the crew could not remain below beyond a very short time, however we struggled on with our efforts till the afternoon when gas was too strong..." "...a vessel came in sight... She was the Emma of Nantes. Captain Cross from Réunion in ballast bound to Calcutta. He came on board... expressing... our ship was doomed... promised to stay by us... The fire incidentally increased in force..." "The forecastle deck blown right out, it was just after the Emma left, and in these latitudes 3 ºS darkness quickly follows... the crew providentially escaped any serious injury & the master steward having just entered the cabin were scorched, cut & bruised among the cabin wreckage... no lives lost. The Frenchman sent his boat to us at once... we had prepared to leave and ask if to be received on board the Emma, which we were, in the kindest and most hospitable manner possible..." "... what only 24 hours before, had been a magnificent frigate... now it was only a floating bulk flaming furiously, just a floating volcano." "The French crew of 13 being now increased by 28 additional mouths to feed and water, it beckoned in all to be careful... On the 3rd evening... the Emma being in ballast was sailing fast, we sighted a ship ahead..." "...to the deck and found myself surrounded by a crowd of brown men, many of whom were very scantily clothed... The vessel was Arab - belonging to Muscat and was from Jeddah... crowded with Malay pilgrims returning to Sumatra from a pilgrimage, he belonged to Pondicherry... some quantity of water could be spared, they would let us have it, but they had nearly 400 people on board..." ".. they were very hospitable bringing me tea in a glass, and cigars also... The captain & navigating officers escorted me to the cabin to see their chart, wanting me to give them the true position..." "Crowded with return Malayo pilgrims returning to Sumatra... I remained about 2 hours quite comfortable on an Arab ship's quarter deck, a hostage for a couple of water casques... I was glad to get back to the Emma." In the final document, headed "A Sailor's Experience of Sea Life," the naval officer summarizes the aforementioned events, starting with the Brazil incident and subsequent encounters in South America. He then describes the fate of the Emma, a third nautical disaster, this time by hurricane. Recounting his own unique experiences within the circumstances, occasionally providing some new details, he connects the three consecutive disasters with the presence of one man. [8vo. 10 pages.] Excerpts from the manuscript: "It was a unique experience for me to be alone among just a crowd of E. Indians in an Arab ship... Captain Cross with his ship's company doing all he could render to us comfortable... The British government presented Captain Cross with a gold chronometer watch for his kindness to us. " "... Sad to relate, the Emma having returned with a cargo rice to Reunion, while discharging there, a hurricane came up, the Emma was blown away from the anchorage. She never returned, neither was anything heard of her, she was lost with all her crew. Captain Cross being on the shore... was the only member of her crew to return to France." "Twice shipwrecked in so short a time, being just 3 months between the two disasters. The same man had been wrecked by fire - the voyage before he had joined at Greenwich so that gave 3 shipwrecks in one year, the last one fatally so for him. Some folks would say he had been a very unlucky man to have on board, but I dare say, our ship would have been burned and the Emma last seen had that man not been there at all.". Very Good.

        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."

        Manifest Kommunisticheskoj partii.

      [Geneva, Louis Czerniecki, 1869].. 8vo (117 x 186 mm). 23, (1) pp. With original printed title label on front flyleaf. Contemp. red half cloth with gilt title to cloth on front board.. First edition of the first Russian translation of the Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels' groundbreaking work of communist propaganda, "undoubtedly the most widespread, the most international production of all Socialist literature, the common platform acknowledged by millions of working men from Siberia to California" (preface to the 1888 edition). 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.
