        [Promotional Photo Album]: Rawley Springs, Va

      [Harrisonburg, Va.?. circa 1870]. Small quarto. Half-leather and cloth with black morocco label on front board with decorations and "Rawley Springs, Va." in gilt. Printed description of Rawley Springs tipped onto front pastedown. Glazed salmon-colored thick card leaves with printed decorative border and "Rawley, Va." printed on each leaf, and with 30 albumen photographs of the various attractions of the resort tipped-in, beneath all but a few is a printed, tipped-in caption (the others have handwritten captions). The images are approximately 5.5" x 4". A few early ownership signatures, the earliest in 1875, including that of J.S. Strayer of Harrisonburg, joints reveal older but fairly slight and effective repair at the extremities, boards a bit bowed, a little smudging on a few of the leaves, but else near fine, and the images are rich and bright. The album depicts Major Zack, the Manager of the Springs; hotels, including The Virginia House, The Baltimore House, and The Washington House; the "Old Laundry"; black waiters posing in a dining room; another of black servant, "Uncle Sim Lightfoot"; a group of distinguished looking gentleman in front of a gazebo labeled "Fat Men of Rawley"; other groups of tourists outdoors at The Gent's Bowling Alley and Billiard Rooms; men fishing; various natural wonders; and other views that seem to indicate that Rawley Springs would be a very nice place to visit. Rawley Springs was (and is) nine miles west of Harrisonburg, near the border with West Virginia. It became a resort starting in 1810 for those looking to enjoy the medicinal waters. The town suffered a serious setback when both The Virginia House and The Washington House burned in 1886. They were rebuilt and burned again in 1915. Unrecorded. OCLC locates no copies, but does locate a small promotional pamphlet for the Springs printed about the same time (one copy each of four successive editions: 1873, 1874, 1875, and 1876). An esthetically pleasing, thoroughly fascinating, and unrecorded promotional album. .

        Autograph Letter, Signed, from President Grant to General William Tecumseh Sherman, Inviting Sherman to a Reception with a Delegation of Leading Chiefs of the Sioux Tribe]. Washington, D.C. June 6, 1870

      - [4]pp. Mailing folds, minor edge toning. President Grant Invites General Sherman to a reception for Sioux Chiefs A congenial letter from President Grant to Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman, inviting Sherman and his wife to join him at the White House that evening for a reception with the "delegation of the Indians now in Washington? The Cabinet and their ladies and most of the Diplomatic Corps with their ladies are to be present also. There has been no invitation sent to any one but those coming expressed a desire to be present. Yours truly U.S. Grant." Sherman has noted on the verso of the third page, "Absent at time of its receipt." In June 1870, President Grant hosted the Sioux tribal chiefs Red Cloud, Spotted Tail, and Swift Bear in Washington, one of many such meetings between Grant and Native American leadership, but one of particular importance. The three chiefs were the leaders of several sub-divisions of the Sioux nation, and those most inclined to seek a peaceful settlement with the encroaching United States. This meeting garnered a front-page illustration in the June 18, 1870 issue of Harper's Weekly , showing Grant shaking hands as he greets the three leaders. Grant's "Indian Peace Policy" met with limited success, and though the policy certainly embodied the cultural values of the era, in hindsight seems misguided. Tribes either agreed to go on reservations (as these three Sioux leaders did), or were pressed to do so. Sherman, serving as the Commanding General of the U.S. Army from 1869 to 1883, oversaw the enforcing of this policy. He pursued this with the vigor and ruthlessness he had applied to Georgia in the Civil War, developed a rather virulent hatred of those Sioux Indians who did not go onto reservations, remarking after Custer's defeat at Little Bighorn that "hostile savages like Sitting Bull and his band of outlaw Sioux.must feel the superior power of the Government." An interesting presidential letter at a key point in United States policy towards Native Americans.

        A SALESMAN'S PROSPECTUS FOR "THE INNOCENTS ABROAD, OR, THE NEW PILGRIM'S PROGRESS."

      Hartford: American Publishing Company, 1870. n. Hardcover. A Salesman's Dummy Apparently Recording the Purchase ofTwain's Early Travel Account by a Prominent Illinois Jurist. 226 x 149 mm mm (9 x 5 3/4"). [80] pp. of sample text (irregularly paginated), [16] leaves of subscription forms (mostly blank). Publisher's black cloth, upper cover with gilt vignette title, lower cover with American Publishing Company device in blind, sample cloth and sheepskin binding options affixed to pastedowns. Housed in a fine later black niger morocco clamshell box With 33 illustrations, comprised of 16 engraved plates with tissue guards, 17 text engravings. Foldout advertisement (with five-inch closed tear) for the publisher's "Family Bible" bound in at rear. Spine head and tail with minor chips, corners somewhat worn, a dozen small blisters in the cloth covering the upper board, but still A SURPRISINGLY WELL-PRESERVED COPY of a category of book almost always encountered in various states of wreckage, this copy entirely clean, completely solid, and with few signs of use in general. Providing a pre-publication sample of content and binding versions for Twain's classic steamship voyage to Europe and the Middle East, this is a salesman's prospectus that time has treated with unusual kindness. The author's first commercial success, the book (in its full-blooded form) is replete with insightful and humorous commentary. As was the custom with many books issued by The American Publishing Company, this copy was sold, not through bookstores, but rather by subscription, using a national network of sales representatives. From town to town they tramped, from city to city they canvassed, door-to-door salesmen who carried with them abridged samples--like the present item--of the books they had for sale. This example contains specimen text, illustrations, binding options and prices, testimonials, reviews, advertisements, and subscription forms. Our anonymous salesman apparently had a brief career, with only two orders entered on the bound-in subscription form: M. Ballou of Princeton, Illinois, ordered a copy in Library Leather with Sprinkled Edge for $4, and C. L. Smith of Princeton ordered one in fine cloth with gilt edge for the same price. Since Princeton, Illinois, is not a large town, and since Ballou is not a terribly common name, it is certainly possible that the first person to succumb to the temptation of the present salesman's dummy was Martin Ballou, the prominent jurist of that name who was born in Halifax, Vermont, in 1812. Ballou attended Harvard, was admitted to the bar in his home state in 1839, and then moved to Princeton, where he was elected Judge of the Circuit Court in 1857, became one of the most well-respected members of his profession in the region, and lived to the end of the century. With the present special object, our salesman's failure turns out to be our own success, for it allowed this dummy (the book, not the salesman) to retire gracefully prior to decrepitude.

        The Mystery of Edwin Drood

      London: Chapman and Hall. , 1870. Octavo. Original dark green bead-grain cloth, spine lettered in gilt and decoratively stamped in black, sawtooth and double-line border to front board in black enclosing an elaborate vignette comprising elaborate dot-and-line work in black and titles in uncial and versal lettering gilt, four-line border enclosing central shield device to rear board in black, fore edge untrimmed. Engraved frontispiece by J. H. Baker, vignette title page and 12 plates after S. L. Fildes. Ownership ink-stamp to front free endpaper. Spine lightly bumped, edges and title page foxed, sporadic light spotting as usual just a touch heavier towards front and rear, discreet pencil correction to p. 21, plate XII with small tear to margin to no loss of image, the cloth clean and fresh and the gilt lettering remarkably bright, an excellent copy. First edition in book form, a superbly preserved example of the original cloth binding, really very scarce in this condition; this copy binding variant A with the sawtooth border to the front board and the rear board stamped in black rather than in blind, though without the yellow-coated endpapers or red-sprinkled edges called for by Carter, suggestive perhaps of some intermediate state between A and B, this last distinguished in part by its plain edges and the possibility of "yellowish white" endpapers. The Mystery of Edwin Drood appeared originally as six monthly parts, from April to September 1870, and was published in book-form on 31 August 1870. "Dickens was working on Drood in his little Swiss chalet (the gift of his actor friend Charles Fechter) in the garden at Gad's Hill on the morning of 8 June 1870, the day on which he later suffered a stroke from which he died the following day". The publisher's printed notice in the sixth and last-published part, dated 12th August 1870, makes the affecting observation of the unfinished manuscript that "its last entire page had not been written two hours when the event occurred which one very touching passage in it (grave and sad but also cheerful and reassuring) might seem almost to have anticipated". Though the novel was unfinished, "soon a whole Drood 'industry' (which still flourishes today) grew up, concerned with providing a plausible solution to the mystery" (ODNB).

        The poetical works of Percy Bysshe Shelley, including various additional pieces from MS. and other sources. Text carefully revised, with notes and a memoir by William Michael Rosetti * G A N Z P E R G A M E N T - H a n d e i n b a n d 2 Bände

      London, E.Moxon Son & co., 1870.. . Vollständige Ausgabe in eleganten, aufwendig hergestellten Handeinbänden: 2 Bände, gebunden in Ganzpergament / Pergament / GPgt / Pgt / 8vo im Format 13,4 x 18,4 cm mit Rückentitel auf Lederschildchen in Goldprägung, Ganzgoldschnitt, handgestochenem Kopfband, Pergamenthäubchen, Handvergoldung der Deckel (Liniendekoration) sowie Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung, Vorsätze aus glänzendem Handmarmorpapier. 504 und 602 Seiten, jeder Band mit einer Frontispiz-Abbildung (samt Seitenhemdchen). - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Bei Dünndruckpapier werden die Lagen zum Heften leicht vorgeritzt. Ein Einsägen oder gar Einraspeln der Bünde findet nicht statt. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder-und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14. - Luxus-Ausgabe in Ganzpergament-Handeinband in sehr guter Erhaltung (bei Band 2 ein Flecken unten auf dem Vorderdeckel, sonst sehr gut)

        Description of a Notation for the Logic of Relatives.

      Welch Bigelow and Company, Cambridge 1870 - Memoirs of the American Academy, Vol. IX. TP + 1-62 + blank rear cover, Quarto, 9½" x 11¾", First Edition Offprint (Ketner P00052).The Rare Original Offprint of Description of a Notation for the Logic of Relatives.NOTE: Description of the Notation for the Logic of Relatives lacks the "Logic of Relatives" front cover (identical in type and appearance to the cover of Brief Description of the Algebra of Relatives - an item offered here separately) and has an unfortunate 1¼" x 6" cutout at the bottom of page 1 effecting the text on both pages 1 & 2. This deletion has been professional blended back into the text using a matching facsimile. The excision was made on page 2, neatly removing Peirce's footnote in which he introduces his important 'copula symbol' (-<) which he wrote was meant "to declare that the object of the term written before it is included under the object of the term written after it." For Peirce, reasoning is primarily and in its most elementary sense, reasoning about relations. This paper - and two other separately offered here - were ground-breaking papers contain important elements in his ongoing formulation of the foundational principles of modern logic in terms of those relations or, as he usually phrased it, their "relatives."Charles Sanders Peirce was the first American to take up the challenge of George Boole's program to find the mathematical laws of logic - a program that resulted in the formulation of today's modern logic. Peirce made numerous major contributions to this development between 1866 and 1914, but it was his technical papers written between 1867 and 1885 that established him as the greatest formal logician in the world and the most influential thinker to appear after Boole and before Ernst Schroeder. Peirce's papers can be notoriously difficult, but once Schroeder explicated them, they became well-known and widely influential in the field. DeMorgan, working on these same Boolean problems, founded the "algebra of relations" in an 1859 paper, but Peirce took his work and extended it much farther - while simultaneously expanding it into a powerful philosophical tool - beginning with this first 1870 paper: Description of a Notation for the Logic of Relatives. The paper radically modified, extended, and transformed Boolean algebra, making it applicable to propositions, relations, probability, and arithmetic. In this paper, Peirce laid the foundations of the logic of relations, the key technique for the logical analysis of mathematics, and invented the copula symbol of inclusion, the most important symbol in the logic of classes. Peirce, who was not known to be humble about himself or his work, commented in 1903: "In 1870, I made a contribution to this subject [logic] which nobody who masters the subject can deny was the most important excepting Boole's original work that ever has been made." (Peirce, Collected Papers, Volume III, p. 27; The Lowell Lectures of 1903.) Gathered and tied with original string utilizing three neat holes the center of the left edge. With just a bit of staining to the front cover (just below the bottom string hole) and in the upper right corner throughout, but getting lighter as the pages progress. With the excision described above professionally corrected with a matching facsimile text. Other than the unfortunate excision, this is remarkably well-preserved and handsome copy of this extremely rare piece by Charles Sanders Peirce. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

      1870. first edition. A Spectacular First Edition of ?"Edwin Drood?" in the Original PartsDICKENS, Charles. The Mystery of Edwin Drood. With Twelve Illustrations by S.L. Fildes, and a Portrait. London: Chapman and Hall, [April-September] 1870.First edition of Dickens?'s final work, left unfinished at the time of his death. In the original six monthly parts, as issued. Octavo (8 13/16 x 5 9/16 inches; 223 x 142 mm.). vii, [1, ?"Illustrations?"], 190, [2, advertisements] pp. Frontispiece portrait of Dickens (?"Engraved by J.H. Baker, from a Photograph taken in 1868, by Mason & Co.?"), wood-engraved vignette title by J. Brown, and twelve wood-engraved plates, two by the firm of Dalziel Brothers, ten by Charles Roberts, all after Samuel Luke Fildes.This set collates complete except for the 8-page Chapman & Hall's Recent Publications (at the end of part V). Part No. 1 has a duplicate of the first advertisement at the rear "Dr. De Jongh's Light Brown Cod Liver Oil"; The rare and fragile ?"Cork Hats?" ad is present in part No. II, ?"a thin sheet of actual cork split to the substance of ordinary news-paper, on both sides of which is printed the publicity matter?"—this example has been well preserved with just some mainly marginal loss. The front wrapper to part No. VI is earliest issue, with a slip ?"Price Eighteenpence?" pasted over the originally printed ?"One Shilling?" rather than correctly printed. It also has the first Wilcox & Gibbs ad, with ?"Concerning Stitches?" on the first page.Original pale green printed wrappers. Small neat repair to the spine edge of lower cover of part V. The spines of the parts have been remarkably and almost invisibly restored (many years ago). Minimal foxing and edge wear. In spite of these flaws, this is a near mint copy—certainly one of the finest that we have ever seen. Housed in a later green buckram clamshell case.?"When Dickens died on June 9, 1870, he had completed only enough of his manuscript to make up six instalments, leaving unfinished a work which had commanded the widest attention for its opening numbers, and which promised to be one of his most effective and popular books. Although only three parts had been issued prior to his death, publication of the work continued, and on completion with Part 6 of all available material, the vast army of readers was left high and dry as to ?'The Mystery.?' The design for the front cover was by C.A. Collins (brother of Wilkie Collins), and therein are depicted eight incidents of the story, which it is frequently suggested have a bearing on the eventual solution. The Author during the writing of the story never disclosed the ultimate development of his plot?" (Hatton and Cleaver).Hatton and Cleaver, pp. 371-382.

Raccolta non consecutiva di dispacci lanciati dall'Agenzia Stefani e pubblicati in Cuneo, che raccolgono notizie sugli avvenimenti militari e politici relativi alla guerra Franco Prussiana e alla contemporanea presa di Roma. I dispacci partono dal 6 settembre 1870, quindi dalla fine della prima parte della campagna che si era chiousaa con Sedan il rpimo settembre. Quasi contemporaneamente, l'8 settembre iniziano i dispacci sui movimenti e le insurrezioni in Lazio '...lungo la linea del confine da Orta ad Acquapendente sventola la bandiera tricolore... Il colonnello Decharrette condusse a montefiascone l'artiglieria...' Il 9 sono riportate le dichiarazioni di disinteresse da parte delle potenze europee relativamente al territorio Romano mentre si afferma che sola questione da regolarsi tra Italia e Vaticano, sono le condizioni dell'indipendenza spirituale della Santa Sede. Il 10 settembre viene pubblicata la notizia dhe il Re di Prussia abbia concluso la pace con Napoleone, mentre si annuncia l'imminente occupazione di Lione. L'11 si da conto dell'insurrezione della provinvia di Viterbo, dell'assalto alla gendarmeria di Valentano, della richiesta di Terracina e Velletri dell'ingresso delle truppe italiane. Viene anche pubblicata la circolare con la quale si stabilisce la nercessit? da parte dell'esercito di occupare i punti del territorio romano per mantenere l'ordine e la sicurezza della Santa Sede. Il 12 viene pubblicato il proclama di Cadorna ai romani '..non veniamo a portare la guerra ma la pace..' mentre si annunciano l'entrate nello staot della chiesa da parte di Bixio (da Orvieto passa a Montefiascone), Porto Felice, castro Ciofi, ecc. Con questi avvenimenti si incastrano i fatti di Francia: il 14 si riporta che la Germania non intende trattare con nessuno se non con napoleone III e che il giorno 10 fu bombardata Toul. Il 15 si da notizia della resa della fortezza di Civitavecchia e contemporaneamente dell'arrivo di 500 volontari americani nel porto di Tolone.
