[Kaw People] Rieff, J.B.
Council Grove, 1870. Albumen photographs, 3 3/4 x 2 3/8 inches on slightly larger mounts, photographer's logo to verso. Very Good. The Kaw people - also known as Kanza or Kansa - were located on the Neosho Reservation near Council Grove from 1847-1873 before white pressure forced them to relocate to Indian Territory in what is now Kay County, Oklahoma. The relocation proved disastrous, with over half the population perishing from contagious disease. These photographs - taken by Texan-turned Council Grove photographer J.B. Reiff, show a Kaw family in the Council Grove area, most likely the Neosho Agency grounds, in the period just before the relocation. Reiff emigrated to Council Grove and opened a studio there in 1866.The picture of the Kaw family shows possibly two brothers, possibly with their sons. The older men carry fans made from the forewings of golden eagles. The young man holds the quills of three peacock tail feathers. The other two images show Euro-Americans in the same setting, a haunting foreshadowing of the relocation to come a few years later.Overall a very good collection, well preserved with some light fading.[Attributes: First Edition]

[Kansas Trade Sign]
Osage Mission, Ks, 1870. Hand-drawn and hand-painted watercolor sign on a 14 x 18 3/4-inch sheet of cardstock. Pencil sketch for the same sign on the verso. Small chips at lower corners, some light soiling. Very good. A remarkable and very attractive handmade sign for D.B. Gregory's livery stable in Osage Mission, Kansas. Undated, the style of the sign suggests a date of the 1870s. The center of the sign shows a lovely illustration in profile of a horse pulling a single-rider, four-wheeled carriage along a dirt road. The text above the illustration reads "D.B. Gregory & Co." and below: "Livery & Sale Stables / Best Stock / Horse & Buggies / Main Bet. County & Neosho Strs. / Osage Mission Kan." The lettering is in black with blue and purple shadowing, and "Osage Mission Kan." is drawn in a very ornate style. The entire sign is decorated with purple watercolor ornamentation. On the verso is a pencil sketch of the horse and the lower half of the carriage, likely a preliminary sketch for the finished illustration. David B. Gregory, born in 1846 in Iowa, established his livery business with his brother in Osage Mission, (now St. Paul), Neosho County, Kansas by the early 1870s. An advertisement in the March 23, 1873 issue of the OSAGE MISSION TRANSCRIPT described Gregory's livery as having a "fine and well selected stock of horses and carriages...the best matched teams for style and speed in the city. Saddle horses for ladies and gents a specialty that defy competition." Settlers came to the region around Osage Mission in the 1840s, following the founding of nearby Fort … [Click Below for Full Description]

To Brevet Major Clarence Mauck
Austin, Texas: Fifth Military District, 1870. Envelope or Cover. Very good. This four-page letter is datelined "Mankato May 24th/59".

The printed letterhead reads: "Headquarters Fifth Military District, / (State of Texas) / Office of the Assistant Adjutant General. / Austin, Texas, _______, 18__".

Each is addressed to "Brevet Major Clarence Mauck, Commanding Detachment, 'Operating Against Indians',Blanco, Blanco County, Texas."The orders are in nice shape.

New York: Wood & Holbrook, 1870. First edition. Original publisher's cloth binding with gilt to spine and front board. Rubbing to extremities of cloth and small bump to edge of front board; spine gently rolled. Brown coated endpapers. Light scattered foxing concentrated at the preliminaries, with the textblock largely clean and unmarked. Collates xii, 228, [16-24, publisher's ads], [2, Hygienic Institute ads], [1, blank]. Scarce in institutions and trade, this volume of medical advice was issued by the fourth woman to earn an M.D. in the U.S. It is the only copy presently on the market. Earning her M.D. from the Central Medical College of Rochester only two years after Elizabeth Blackwell's graduation from Geneva Medical College, Rachel Gleason became the fourth licensed female doctor in the U.S. For over forty years, she was the director of the Elmira Water Cure, later called the Gleason Sanitarium, a luxurious health resort that specialized in providing homeopathic treatments to upper class women. In addition to giving these women a space where their health issues were taken seriously, Gleason used the funds she earned from this and from consulting to drive social change. She shaped the next generation of medicine, providing financial support for eighteen women to attend medical school -- all of whom graduated with degrees and became prominent physicians (Willard). She funneled money into the education of Freedmen; and she was a supporter of women's dress reform. The present work, Talks to My Patients, makes her medical advice accessible to women in the home.

SHERMAN, JOHN
Photographer unidentified, 1870. Signed by John Sherman. Ohio Republican John Sherman was one of the most powerful American politicians of the second half of the nineteenth century. He served in the House of Representatives (1855-61) and U.S. Senate (1861-77) before becoming Secretary of the Treasury in the Hayes administration (1877-81). When Garfield was elected president, Sherman returned to the Senate, where he served from 1881 to 1897. Sherman was the younger brother of Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman. Sherman is most famous for the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890, the first major federal action to curb the power of the great monopolies. The act was intended to prevent monopolies from using their power to restrain trade. The purpose of the [Sherman] Act is not to protect businesses from the working of the market; it is to protect the public from the failure of the market. The law directs itself not against conduct which is competitive, even severely so, but against conduct which unfairly tends to destroy competition itself (Spectrum Sports, Inc. v. McQuillan 506 U.S. 447 (1993).

Training under his father, the political cartoonist John Doyle, the young Richard Doyle would join the famous 'Punch' magazine aged 19. Entrusted with designing the masthead for the magazine, his design would feature on the cover of 'Punch' for almost a century. Though a prolific illustrator, he was know for being incredibly unreliable, once nearly loosing a commission to illustrate Thackeray's 'The Newcomes', due to consistent tardiness. This contributed to his limited successes during his lifetime. 'In Fairyland' is widely considered his finest work.

William Shakespeare
Virtue and Yorston, 1870. Good amount of wear, some tears (especially on cover page of part 1, which has become separated), but for 1870's paper-bound folios - they have held up well. These were "sold to members only" - 50 cents. Have a lithograph inside. From what I understand these were published in the 1870's. Rare, complete set of 50 issues. Measure approximately 15" x 11".

Feuillet de faux titre et la dernière page blanche oxydés L'avis au lecteur fourni d'utiles renseignement sur cette "Cérémonie du malade imaginaire"; les voici : "On sait que la Cérémonie du 'Malade imaginaire' est l'oeuvre de quelques beaux esprits qui s'amusèrent, chez Madame de la Sablière, à la composer en commun. Chacun y mit la main & fournit son trait; mais Molière réduisit ce factum, nécessairement peu prolixe, aux proportions qui lui semblèrent le mieux appropriées au Divertissement dont il voulait faire suivre sa Comédie. Il est singulier que le canevas primitif, qui fut imprimé dans le format in-12 immédiatement après la mort de Molière, soit resté ignoé des bibliophiles pendant près de deux siècles, ainsi que l'a remarque feu M. Magnin, lorsqu'il en fit la découverte sur les rayons de notre bibliothèque nationale, à Paris". On ne connais aucun exemplaire de la première édition. La seconde est de Rouen.

TAINE, Hippolyte.
Paris: Librairie Hachette et Cie, 1870. Paris: Librairie Hachette et Cie,, 1870. 2 volumes, octavo (228 x 140 mm). Contemporary blue floral patterned boards, leather spine labels lettered gilt, the original printed wrappers preserved. Extremities lightly rubbed, one or two leaves with very short marginal tears; a very good copy. First edition. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the half-title of vol. I: "A Monsieur Gallimard - H. Taine". Along with Ernest Renan, Taine was one of the leading French positivistic thinkers of the second half of the nineteenth century. "Modern psychology. in France may be said to begin in 1870, when two important books were published, Taine's De l'intelligence and Ribot's La Psychologie anglaise contemporaine in which the prevailing associationism was well and clearly expounded." (Flugel, A Hundred Years of Psychology). "The history of psychological theories in France entered upon a new phase in 1870. Whatever else may be thought of the work done by Taine, no one would deny his right to be considered the leader of the empirical school and the exponent of concrete practical methods of study." (Brett, History of Psychology). Although Taine's philosophical views were formed early in life under the joint influence of Spinoza, Hegel, and classical science, they were first systematically expounded in his de l'intelligence. The theory of mind presented in this book is based on Taine's general monism and determinism. In his work on intelligence Taine insists that there are no entities corresponding to words such as "faculty", "power", "se … [Click Below for Full Description]
