        United States Capitol

      Fine Large-format Photograph of the Capitol. This dramatic photograph of the United States Capitol shows the building ca. 1870, after the completion of the new dome and the extensions. The view shows the east side of the building, as seen from the northeast. There are signs of construction evident in the image, and a number of people and two horse-drawn carriages are visible. The photograph was taken within a few years of 1867, when the cheek blocks beside the Senate steps were installed. The photograph shows the rails for a street car system, for which termini were constructed on the Capitol grounds. Thomas Jefferson insisted the legislative building be called the "Capitol" rather than "Congress House." The word "Capitol" comes from Latin and is associated with the Roman temple to Jupiter Optimus Maximus on Capitoline Hill. The name, which followed the example of Virginia's House of Burgesses' "Capitoll" authorized in 1699, signified the national aspirations for a republic steeped in the ancient Roman virtues of citizenship and self-government. During the Civil War some objected to continued construction of the building, but Lincoln insisted it continue, saying, "If people see the Capitol going on, it is a sign we intend the Union to go on." On March 4, 1865, Lincoln delivered his Second Inaugural Address from the East Portico, visible here, declaring, "With malice toward none, with charity for all ..." The U.S. Capitol is, apart from the Statue of Liberty, the greatest symbol of America and perhaps the nation's most famous and most important single building. Albumen print, mounted. 15 1/2 x 9 1/2 in. Mount darkened, some darkening and minimal surface wear to image, but generally in very good condition.

        Abraham Lincoln] Yours truly. A. Lincoln

      1870 - Steel-faced copper plate with a photogravure of Lincoln: 11 1/2 x 9 inches; image: 8 x 6 inches. Head and torso portrait of Lincoln in 3/4 profile with facsimile signature This photogravure of Abraham Lincoln is a reversed image of a photograph taken in 1858 by Alexander Hesler, to which a beard and facsimile signatuve have been added. Hesler took several excellent photo portraits of Lincoln in the days before he became President. The prints made from this plate clearly, were produced to meet the demand for portraits after the assassination, (though we have been unable to locate an example of the print). It is in any event, this is a fine memorial portrait of the President, emphasizing his calmness and seriousness.

        The photographic archive, papers, and relics of William Kennoch, Secret Service Agent

      More than 1000 photographs, more than 125 letters, extensive diaries and memoranda books, plus relics, manuscripts, and ephemera as detailed below. Very good condition overall. The photographs are preserved in two half morocco cases. Kennoch, who was born in Edinburgh in 1841, joined the Secret Service early in 1870 after a career as a cigar smuggler. He soon became an expert in counterfeiting cases. The U.S. Secret Service was created in 1865 to combat counterfeiting, which accounted for one-third of the currency then in circulation. It also investigated crimes from bank robbery and murder to illegal gambling. Kennoch (whose name was often given as "Kennock" in the books and newspapers of the day), served until his death at 46 in 1887. His obituary noted that he "was probably better acquainted with counterfeiters, their ways and haunts than any other detective in the country." Hiram C. Whitley, Chief of the Secret Service under U.S. Grant, called Kennoch one of his "ablest" agents in his autobiography. Kennoch maintained extensive photographic files containing annotated cartes de visite of fugitives, criminals and other wanted men and women. Many of the photographs are annotated with names and aliases of the perpetrators and wanted criminals, crimes committed, and conviction and arrest dates. Most are annotated with the locations and names of their photographers. This is an extraordinary archive documenting the life of a federal law officer and the criminals he tracked for more than fifteen years in post-Civil War America. In addition to the enormous photographic holdings, the collection includes many manuscripts, relics, and ephemera from Kennoch's dramatic career. This tremendous collection, reflecting American financial, social, criminal, business, and photographic history, offers limitless research and exhibition possibilities. Please inquire for details.

Dürer's famous treatise on the fortification of towns, villages and castles, was published in 1527 as "Etliche Unterricht, zur Befestigung der Städte, Schlösser und Flecken". Translated from the German by Alexandre Ratheau who contributed an extended introduction which examines Dürer's work in historical perspective. Ratheau is also responsible for the fine illustrations in the book, engraved and printed in Paris. "The book goes beyond being an instruction manual on the design of a fortified city.

As revealing today as they were in their own time, these stories will entertain and delight modern readers while illuminating the life and customs of classical India." ====== Sir Richard Burton: "Explorer, adventurer, translator, and student of Eastern sexual customs, was born in Torquay, England. He received an irregular education, which included an expulsion from Oxford University. In 1842 Burton joined the East India Company and went to India, where he learned the Persian, Hindustani, Afghan, and Arabic languages. Burton was the first European to reach Harar, the religious capital of Somaliland. He was the discoverer of Lake Tanganyika and explored in the Congo, the Cameroons, Dahomey, and Brazil. He was a pioneer ethnologist and anthropologist. Burton was a linguist of dazzling ability, speaking 29 languages and 11 dialects. He wrote 43 books on his travels and 2 volumes of poetry. In addition to translating the Arabian Nights, he translated) 6 volumes of Portuguese literature, 2 volumes of Latin poetry, and 4 volumes of Neapolitan, African, and Hindu folklore. Following a trip to the United States in 1860, Burton published an account of the Mormon settlement in Utah titled City of the Saints (1861). His wife, Isabel Arundel, frequently traveled with him on such journeys. After Burton died in Trieste in 1890, she burned many of his journals, as well as the manuscript of an uncompleted work called The Scented Garden Men's Hearts to Gladden. ========= Snip of preface: ‘The genius of Eastern nations,’ says an established and respectable authority, ‘was, from the earliest times, much turned towards invention and the love of fiction. The Indians, the Persians, and the Arabians, were all famous for their fables. Amongst the ancient Greeks we hear of the Ionian and Milesian tales, but they have now perished, and, from every account that we hear of them, appear to have been loose and indelicate.’ Similarly, the classical dictionaries define ‘Milesiæ fabulæ’ to be ‘licentious themes,’ ‘stories of an amatory or mirthful nature,’ or ‘ludicrous and indecent plays.’ M. Deriége seems indeed to confound them with the ‘Mœurs du Temps’ illustrated with artistic gouaches, when he says, ‘une de ces fables milésiennes, rehaussées de peintures, que la corruption romaine recherchait alors avec une folle ardeur.’ ========= Priced reasonably for your consideration, packaged carefully and will be shipped to you immediately.

Ab 1868 (Heft 6) bekannte sich der bedeutende Philologe und Jurist Ulrichs (1825-1895) auch öffentlich zu seinem Namen und seiner Homosexualität. Seine Schriften gelten zu Recht als Ausgangspunkt der homosexuellen Emanzipationsbewegung. - Ulrichs prägte für den homosexuellen Mann den Begriff "Urning", die männliche Homosexualität bezeichnete er als "Uranismus" (der Begriff Homosexualität wurde erst 1869 durch den österreichisch-ungarischen Schriftsteller Karl Maria Kertbeny geprägt). Die vorliegende Schrift "Vindex" (= Verteidiger) ist die erste gedruckte Schrift im deutschsprachigen Raum, die für die Rechte der Homosexuellen eintritt 1867 trug Ulrichs seine Forderungen auf dem Deutschen Juristentag in München erstmals öffentlich vor, was tumultartige Szenen hervorrief. Auch Friedrich Engels äußerte sich gegenüber Karl Marx äußerst abfällig. - Ulrichs Forderung einer "urnischen Ehe", auf höchstes Unverständnis seiner Zeitgenossen stoßend, ist in Deutschland am 1. 10. 2017 Realität geworden. - Etwas berieben, tls. gering fleckig.

Contemporary full morocco leather gilt decorated and titled in gilt, binding sturdy and intact, 5 raised bands, 6 compartments, marbled endpapers, printed title page, 35 large (5.75" x 7.5") photograph portraits of New York State Senators interleaved with blank sheets, on printed thick card leaves with the signatures of most below the portrait, Senator William H. Brand's copy with his name gilt stamped on the front board, moderate wear/scratch marks to boards and spine, rub marks/fraying to board edges/corners and spine tips and tops, some mold spotting to text block edges however no mold/musty scent, some foxing/age spotting to front/back matters, white soiled spot to rear board, gilt ruled board edges.

Hoffman (the last Mayor of New York City to be elected Governor Signed), Lt. Governor and President of the Senate Allen C. Beach, and the infamous William M.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1870 - 1870 Wisden Original Wrappers

      1870. On offer here is a very rare 1870 Wisden still in it's original wrappers and in very good overall condition. As can be seen from the photographs, the front and rear wrappers are a little marked - mainly foxing. A facsimile spine has been added to the book in recent times. That repair was not carried out by me, but I suspect that at one time the book was rebound in hard boards and at some stage the book has been taken out of the boards and a facsimile spine attached. Internally, the title page and the first few pages have some foxing as do the last couple of pages but otherwise the contents are in excellent, clean, unmarked condition - most unusual for a book of this vintage. Overall, a really nice example.
