        Shortest Route to California Across the Great Basin of Utah

      J. B. Lippincott & Co., Philadelphia 1869 - A hard-to-find copy in origial pink wraps. In a custom red cloth slipcase with gilt imprint. Wraps are soiled and heavily chipped on edges including a two-inch corner from the rear wrap. Spine is taped. Interior pages have some missing corners and a few soil spots and margin marks. This copy is inscribed by the author to Robert Campbell on the title page. The folding map with the route in red is in fair condition with some recent and older repairs to it. Illustrated by a History of Explorations of the Great Basin of Utah with its Topographical and Geological Character and Some Account of the Indian Tribes. Simpson's 1859 survey charted this shorter route but his full report was not published by the United States government until 1876 due to the Civil War. This earlier Lippincott publication describes the route used by the mail and the Pony Express in the 1860s. Howes S 504.

        La photographie des couleurs

      é - pages 303-311 dans Les Mondes. Revue hebdomadaire des sciences [.] par l'Abbé Moigno, Paris, Bureaux des Mondes, février 1869, in-8, , demi-basane rouge de l'époque, Très rare article publié avant le tiré à part, augmenté et paru sous le titre "Solution générale du problème de la photographie des couleurs". Avec celui de Louis Ducos du Hauron (1837-1920): "Les couleurs en photographie, solution du problème", le mémoire de Charles Cros (1842-1888) est l'une des deux premières publications au sujet de l'invention de la photographie en couleur. Bien avant eux, plusieurs tentatives avaient été faites pour essayer de fixer, en vain, les couleurs. Entre autres, les essais d'Edmond Becquerel, qui en 1848 fixa les couleurs du spectre solaire sur une plaque de cuivre, n'aboutirent pas à une solution pratique. "«La plaquette reprend l'essentiel d'une communication faite a? l'Acade?mie des sciences deux ans auparavant (1867) et un article publie? dans Les Mondes, pe?riodique scientifique dirige? par l'abbe? Moigno (25 fe?vrier 1869)" (En Français dans le texte). Les premiers essais en photographie de Charles Cros furent tout à fait exceptionnels; et là, l'histoire en garda la mémoire : en 1882, il réalisa ses premières épreuves colorées d'après "Le Printemps" d'Edouard Manet. Mais les applications de ses recherches en restèrent là car le procédé de Ducos du Hauron avait été préféré. N'oublions pas de signaler que Charles Cros est aussi le génial inventeur du phonographe dont il présenta le procédé en 1877. (cf. DBF, IX, 1279). Malgré des estampilles de la Bibliothéque de l'Institut, bon exemplaire, dans sa première reliure, frais, de cette texte fondateur de la photographie en couleurs [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Log of Midshipman F.L. Campbell Recording His Service Aboard Eight British Naval Vessels, 1869 - 1874.

      Folio, unpaginated. About 300 pages of manuscript entries. Ink charts, pencil drawings and ink and watercolor drawings. Much of Campbell's time was spent on ships in the Mediterranean, but about a third of his entries cover two cruises to the West Indies and Bermuda. Campbell's account begins in Portsmouth, where he was stationed ashore. After a couple of months he transferred to "HMS Bristol", which sailed to the West Indies in October 1869, returning to Portsmouth in January, 1870. Campbell then steamed to Malta aboard "HMS Lord Warden." After a few months on station there he transferred to "HMS Caledonia" for a Med cruise, stopping at Syracuse, Suda Bay, Crete, Smyrna, Rhodes, Palermo, Gibraltar, Naples and Lisbon. In January 1872 he split his time between "HMS Caledonia" and "HMS Defense." This was followed by a six month hitch on "HMS Agincourt" in drydock in Devonport. In early 1873 Campbell transferred to "HMS Narcissus" for a tour of the coast of Spain and a second voyage to the West Indies, stopping at Barbados, Tobago, Grenada, St. Vincent, St. Lucia, Martinique, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Antigua, Nevis, St. Thomas, Santa Domingo, Jamaica and Nassau. In these waters they performed Fleet Evolutions under steam, then cruised north to Halifax, and back to Gibraltar, Spain, and Malta. Campbell's entries are brief, but they cover every significant detail of each day, including evolutions, deaths, courts martial, payments to the crew, repairs, drills and exercises, and sights and events. As was the practice for officers of his time and station in the Royal Navy, Campbell illustrated his journal with eighteen handsome track charts done in ink and watercolor (some folding), two watercolor illustrations of shipboard rigging, and three pencil recognition views. It also contains a vintage piece of shipboard printing - a 4to broadside entitled "An Humble Tribute of Respect to the memory of our late worthy Captain C.S.S. Stanhope... Dedicated to their shipmates by the C.C.C. AMATEURS of H.M. Ship Caledonia," a funeral ode of ten four line stanzas,signed W.M. This journal provides a good overview of life in the Victorian Royal Navy, a rare piece of shipboard printing, and some nicely executed charts and views. Bound in full mottled calf with red morocco spine label.

        Collection of 41 Autograph Letter, signed from Flora to Will & 23 Autograph Letter, signed from Will to Flora

      1869. 1 vols. 8vo. Generally in very good condition, many with their original envelopes. 1 vols. 8vo. Flora Payne was the sister of Oliver Hazard Payne of Cleveland, William C. Whitney's roommate at Yale. After graduation, Payne and Whitney kept in touch and visited frequently, and it was on one of these visits, in 1868, that Flora and William were introduced. The letters are primarily love letters exchanged during their engagement, while Flora resided in Cleveland with her family, and Whitney sought to build his law practice in New York. Flora Payne and William Collins Whitney were married on October 13, 1869.Flora Payne had a far broader and more liberal education than most young women of her day. After attending the Cleveland Seminary for young ladies and the Spingler Institute in New York, she traveled to Cambridge to attend a seminary for young ladies conducted by the naturalist Louis Agassiz, which later evolved into Radcliffe College. Flora was widely traveled, having spent the several years during the Civil War in Europe. While abroad, she had sent letters home to the Cleveland Daily Record, and their publication brought her local celebrity.In the course of the correspondence, Flora's increasing respect for Whitney's profession emerges: on several occasions she mentions following his cases in the papers, and speaks of her realization that law is "a Christian profession." Her independence of spirit is also clear:"A woman with a mind of her own is certainly the most formidible thing in creation--She may rule even though she tramples on those she rules ... [E]ven the lesser women may hold the reins of the connubial chariot if she gilds them a little!" (Jan. 22, 1869)The letters reveal a lively intellectual relationship between Flora and Will, with frequent discussion of books and ideas; she refers to him several times as "my philosopher.""I hope, Flo, that by the by when our lives are lived together we shall be persistently assistant to each other intellectually. We must certainly read and think upon the same things by and by and have mutual intellectual sympathies." (April 7, 1869).

In den 16 Jahren bis dieser Erlass aufgehoben wurde, \"veränderte die Kampagne die politische Landschaft. Mit der Kampagne wurden soziale und sexuelle Konventionen hinterfragt, die nie zuvor öffentlich diskutiert wurden. Die Kampagne radikalisierte zahlreiche Frauen, härtete sie ab gegenüber öffentlichen Angriffen und Verleumdungen und schuf eine Infrastruktur des öffentlichen Protests\" (Philipps, S. 86). - Leicht gebräunt, Einband geringfügig altersfleckig, insgesamt gut erhalten.

After a couple of months he transferred to "HMS Bristol", which sailed to the West Indies in October 1869, returning to Portsmouth in January, 1870. Campbell then steamed to Malta aboard "HMS Lord Warden." After a few months on station there he transferred to "HMS Caledonia" for a Med cruise, stopping at Syracuse, Suda Bay, Crete, Smyrna, Rhodes, Palermo, Gibraltar, Naples and Lisbon. In January 1872 he split his time between "HMS Caledonia" and "HMS Defense." This was followed by a six month hitch on "HMS Agincourt" in drydock in Devonport. In early 1873 Campbell transferred to "HMS Narcissus" for a tour of the coast of Spain and a second voyage to the West Indies, stopping at Barbados, Tobago, Grenada, St. Vincent, St. Lucia, Martinique, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Antigua, Nevis, St. Thomas, Santa Domingo, Jamaica and Nassau. In these waters they performed Fleet Evolutions under steam, then cruised north to Halifax, and back to Gibraltar, Spain, and Malta. Campbell's entries are brief, but they cover every significant detail of each day, including evolutions, deaths, courts martial, payments to the crew, repairs, drills and exercises, and sights and events. As was the practice for officers of his time and station in the Royal Navy, Campbell illustrated his journal with eighteen handsome track charts done in ink and watercolor (some folding), two watercolor illustrations of shipboard rigging, and three pencil recognition views. It also contains a vintage piece of shipboard printing - a 4to broadside entitled "An Humble Tribute of Respect to the memory of our late worthy Captain C.S.S. Stanhope... Dedicated to their shipmates by the C.C.C. AMATEURS of H.M. Ship Caledonia," a funeral ode of ten four line stanzas,signed W.M. This journal provides a good overview of life in the Victorian Royal Navy, a rare piece of shipboard printing, and some nicely executed charts and views. Bound in full mottled calf with red morocco spine label.

        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
