Lady Wedderburn's Wish, A Tale Of The Crimean War James Grant 1870 Tinsley Brothers : London 8" by 5.5" x, 291, vi, 278, vi, 282 SUMMARY A first edition of this scarce novel by Scottish author James Grant, complete here in three volumes. First Edition,Signed Overall Condition: Very Good Indeed This book weighs 1.5 KG when packed UK Postage: £ FREE POSTAGE US Postage: £ 23.99 EU Postage: £ 18.99 European Postage: £ 19.99 Asia Postage: £ 31.99 Worldwide Postage: £ 32.99 DESCRIPTION Grant was prolific as an author, writing nearly 100 books throughout his life. He is suspected of Jacobite sympathies, having founded in 1853 the national Association for the Vindication of Scottish Rights. In his youth he served with the 62nd Foot, but resigned his comission in 1843 to become a draughtsman. However, his literary interests soon took over, and soon devoted himself to writing. His first novel was The Romance of War, based on the experiences of his father's regiment of Highlanders in the Peninsular War. It was a moderate success, and soon he was writing two or three novels a year. Most of his novels had war as a theme, and many besides dwelt on Scottish subjects. This novel was published only 5 years before his death. It concerns the Crimean war, which had occured only in the 1850s. The war had a significant cultural impact in Britain; this novel provides an example of the war's reception. In keeping with Tennyson's The Charge Of The Light Brigade, Romance is the most prominent characteristic. Direct from the library o … [Click Below for Full Description]

c1870]., [Beijing. Inner Beijing in the late nineteenth century Engraved map. A comprehensive map of Shoushan (inner capital city) Beijing in 1870, accurately depicting the architecture and streets within the symmetrical layout of the city. A 7.8 kilometre central axis runs as the backbone of the capital city from Yongding Men (Yongding Gate) in the north, to the Zhong Gu Lou (Bell and Drum Tower) in the south. The Inner City wall, which surrounded the Imperial City, was around twenty-four kilometress long, fifteen metres high, twenty meters thick at the base and twelve meters thick at the top. It was constructed with Nine gates and Four corner towers. Two gates to the north named Desheng , Anding ; three to the south named Chongwen , Zhengyang , Xuanwu ; two to the west named Fucheng , Xizhi ; two to the east named Dongzhi , Chaoyang . The layout of the city is meticulously depicted and rich in content, and revives the original appearance of the inner city of Beijing in the Qing Dynasty, including, Hutong (alleys), city gates, Pailou (archways), temples, and the Gongyuan (Imperial Examination Hall). The system is unique to Beijing, and most of the Hutong names shown on the map remain in use today. It is significant to note that the Eight Manchu Banners, a military establishment that has been synonymous with Manchu identity, are also shown on the map. Beijing's central axis now extends northwards to a total length of 26 kilometres, connecting the past to the present. The architectural style within the walls of the inner capital city has also evolved, although the past is pr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Goncharov, Ivan
Tipografia Morskogo Ministerstva, Skt Peterburg, 1870. A beautifully fresh example of the first book edition of Goncharov's last major novel. Completed in 1869, "Obryv" represented the final part of Goncharov’s trilogy "on the transition from one era of Russian life . to another" (Staroselskaya N.D., Roman I. A. Goncharova "Obryv". Moscow, 1990). The trilogy included the previously written "Obyknovennaya Istoria" and "Oblomov". Goncharov worked on "Obryv" on and off for twenty years: the process was complicated by the conflict with Turgenev, who, according to Goncharov, plagiarised the motifs and images from the nascent "Obryv" in "Dvorianskoe gnezdo" and "Nakanune". "Obryv" was first published in the journal Vestnik Evropy (1869, No. 1-5). Large duodecimo, two volumes. Half-title, title, 555pp.; half-title, title, 667pp. Contemporary sheep spine over marbled boards, cloth corners, flat spine lettered in gilt; slightly rubbed. Provenance: 'A.F.'

Overall size 162 x 108 mm. With photographer's elaborate promotional device printed in gold ink to verso. With inscription to upper margin above photograph signed by Hildebrand presenting the photograph to his colleague Wilhelm Matthison-Hansen (1870-1922) on the occasion of his 10th anniversary as music teacher at the Conservatory in Copenhagen dated September 10, 1910. Slightly worn; remnants of mount to verso. Poznansky & Langston Vol. I: Catalogue of Photographs, no. 56, p. 495. Richard Hildebrand (1849-1927) was a well-known Danish cellist who spent some 30 years playing in the orchestra of the Imperial Opera House in St. Petersburg; he left there to return to his native Copenhagen in ca. 1902. A concert in Copenhagen was planned for around that time (as indicated in Tchaikovsky's note on the photograph's mount), referred to by the composer in his travel diary: Richard Hildebrand later reported in the journal Musik (1920, No. 1, p. 4) that in late autumn of 1893 he received a letter from Tchaikovsky telling him that he would soon be visiting Copenhagen. According to Hildebrand, the last letter that Tchaikovsky wrote in his life was to [the Danish conductor Johan] Svendsen. He thanked his Norwegian colleague for the fine success he had achieved with Iolanthe, a sucess that had pleassed him all the more because the opera had previously aroused little interest. It had been planned that Tchaikovsky would conduct a program of his own compositions in January, 1894. Early in November, 1893, however, while still in St. Petersburg, he fell ill and on November 6 he died. "It was … [Click Below for Full Description]

Harte, Francis Bret
[Poker Flats & Roaring Camp] Boston: Fields, Osgood, & Co., 1870. Original green cloth. First Edition. This is Harte's third and best-known book, one which he spent the rest of his life unsuccessfully trying to equal. These tales had originally appeared in the Overland Monthly, of which he was the first editor; the title story had appeared in 1868 in its second issue ("under publisher's protest. The religious press called it 'immoral,' California papers thought it 'singular,' but Eastern critics went headlong into eulogies" [K&H]). The volume also includes such Harte throbs as "The Outcasts of Poker Flat," "Miggles" and "Mliss"; an additional tale, "Brown of Calaveras," would be added to the (later in 1870) second and subsequent editions. This copy is in green pebble-grain cloth; copies were also bound in terra-cotta or purple, with this grain or another (no priority). It is in near-fine condition (a touch of wear at the head of the spine, minor front cover crease, front endpaper barely cracking). This is an American classic, increasingly difficult to find in collectible condition. Blanck 7246; Zamarano 80 #40; Grolier American 76; a Johnson High Spot ("The first stories written by a westerner about the westerners in the western vernacular, the earlier western writers being so afraid of being called 'unliterary' that they ignored the crude but powerful material at hand").

Freehold, NJ, 1829-1839. 231, [13] pp. Oblong octavo (5-1/4" x 8-1/2"). Reversed calf, black-stamped frames to boards. Light rubbing and some scuffs and scratches to boards, moderate rubbing to board edges with wear to corners, front board detached, spine perished. Owner signature to front pastedown and following leaf. Moderate toning to interior, first three leaved detached and edgeworn with very minor loss to content, diminishing edgewear to following five leaves, a few manuscript items laid-in. ,250. * With an index. This ledger, which opens with the statement "Opened Office Apl 21 1829," records the early years of the career of a man who would become a prominent New Jersey lawyer, prosecutor and, later, an associate justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court, a post he held from 1854 to 1868. (He was also the father of William H. Vredenburgh, judge on New Jersey Court of Errors and Appeals, and Peter Vredenburgh Jr. (actually III), a lawyer and distinguished Major during the American Civil War. Camp Vredenburgh, which is located near Freehold, is named after him.) The entries record fees collected for legal services. Several prominent local names are listed among the parties, such as Laird and Vandevanter. Taken together, they offer a good idea of the legal activity in an important New Jersey town.

In late 1846, he established a clothing and dry goods business in Matamoros wich apparently catered to military personnel and those who had accompanied the occupation. In the letter, Graph notes that he is sending San Ramon an inventory of clothing and footwear and inquires as to what ohter products San Ramon thinks will sell well. The letter reads in part:"We enclose an Invoice of Clothing and other articles ... a handsome assortment... we hope they will sell well. We would have shipped you more by this Schooner the "Lone Star" but she was taken up and filled on the first day she was put up for Matamoros...

1870. ***Copy of photos, personal formats, graphics, or text is prohibited. Ebay may drop listings with infractions. I review content regularly. Deluxe Limited Editions Don Quixote Author: Miquel de Cervantes Illustrations by Gustav Dore Description: This special limited edition from Easton Press recreates 1870 edition in a very exclusive run of just 600 copies. That's a minuscule number in the big scheme of things. Gustav Dore is considered one of the greatest, if not THE greatest illustrator of all time and that alone makes this a very special copy. In addition, the book has gorgeous gilt design and two tone leather stamping for a much richer look. In truth it is the most beautiful copy I have seen and it is destined to become extremely scarce. There are a few copies out there because people are downsizing and some secondary sellers still have stock (it is sold out from manufacturer). Frankly, many buyers have no idea how stunning and special this volume is. I HIGHLY recommend not waiting regardless of who you buy it from. This book will eventually become a near impossible get. Unfortunately, my lighting and equipment wasn't adjusted quite right and the photos are a little dim. They don't nearly do this book justice for its beauty! I have numerous special volumes illustrated by Gustav Dore that you should check out.

Rebound in green cloth, with new endpapers, preserving the original skin of the gilt-decorated covers and spine. 4to (38.5cm x 28cm). Good to Fair only condition. Recased. New endpapers. Cloth covers (which have been relaid) are marked and somewhat stained. Pencil inscription to half title. Binding slightly strained at title page and at the end. Tiny chipping to top corner of final leaves. Half-title quite foxed. Handling marks on most pages, scattered foxing to text. The plates are mainly quite browned / foxed around the edges, with some also foxed in the image areas. Nevertheless, considering this is a children's book that has clearly been read, there are none of the typical stains, tears or doodles that you might find in other works of its kind. Please ask if you require a more detailed condition report, or view gallery images. A scarce example of this beautifully conceived and printed tale of fairies and elves, with 15 (of the 16) famous colour illustrations by Richard Doyle, engraved and printed by Edmund Evans. This copy has been recased, with the gilt-decorated cloth to spine and covers retained. Despite its defects - which we have probably over-dramatised to be on the safe side - it is still quite a pleasing copy to the eye. [Attributes: First Edition]

Jerusalem: Circa 1860-1870s. Albumen-Silver print. 22 x 28 cm. Mounted on card 31 x 38 cm. Titled, numbered and signed in the image and on the mount in ink From a collection of photographs of the Middle East by the Adelphoi Zangaki = Zangaki Brothers.Little is known about the Zangaki brothers, except their initials, C. and G., and that they worked out of Port Said and Cairo from around the 1860s through to at least the 1890s.]Many of the Zangaki photographs are signed with a brother's initial and/or a place of business, e.g., "C. Zangaki" or "Zangaki, Cairo" or occasionally "A.Zangaki".Until relatively recently it was believed that "A.Zangaki" was a single photographer. However, with the discovery of a signboard with the name "Adelphoi Zangaki", it was recognised that these were brothers.Ibn al Haithan Many scholars also believe that their names were George and Constantinos (or Costas). Some scholars believe that they were born on the island of Milos, while others have suggested that they were Cypriot. However, no definitive evidence pertaining to their place and date of birth is extant. How they came to learn photography is also unclear. However, shortly after their arrival in Egypt they had become established photographers with a studios in Cairo and Port Said.By the 1850s, tourist travel to Egypt created strong demand for photographs as souvenirs. A small group of early photographers, mostly of French origin, made their way to Cairo and the Nile Valley to capitalise on this demand. These pioneering photographers included Félix Bonfils (1831-1885); Gustave Le Gray (1820-1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mommsen history Of Rome 1870 Scribners Leather Bound Marble Board. Shipped with USPS Media Mail. The pages are all tight and clean with minimal (if any at all) foxing. No mold smoke or odors. Excellent books! Shelf wear is present and some boards are splitting at the spine but all are intact. Wikipedia says this about the books: The History of Rome (German: Römische Geschichte) is a multi-volume history of ancient Rome written by Theodor Mommsen (1817-1903). Originally published by Reimer & Hirzel, Leipzig, as three volumes during 1854-1856, the work dealt with the Roman Republic. A subsequent book was issued which concerned the provinces of the Roman Empire. Recently published was a further book on the Empire, reconstructed from lecture notes. The initial three volumes won widespread acclaim upon publication; indeed, "The Roman History made Mommsen famous in a day."[1] Still read and qualifiedly cited, it is the prolific Mommsen's most well-known work. The work was specifically cited when Mommsen was awarded the Nobel Prize.
