        The Story of the Volsungs & Niblungs with Certain Songs from the Elder Edda

      London: F.S. Ellis, 1870. Inscribed by William Morris to Algernon Swinburne. Translated from the Icelandic by Eirikr Magusson and William Morris. First edition, one of 750 copies. 4 pp, of adverts at the rear. 8vo., original elaborately gilt patterned dark green cloth designed by Morris, gilt lettering, untrimmed. Cloth worn at the bottom edge and spine with a 1inch piece missing from the top of the spine, some waterstaining limited to the endpapers and tape repairs to the rear hinge. Still a good sound copy with an incredible association, housed in a green cloth clam-shell box. Inscribed on the half-title "Algernon Charles Swinburne/from his friend William Morris". An early work by Morris, inscribed to one of the great poets of the time, a personal friend and admirer and an intimate member, like Morris, of the Pre-Raphealite group. An astonishing association copy.

        [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. .

        Pastoral del Excelentísimo Señor Arzobispo de Westminster sobre la Infalibilidad del Papa. Traducida del inglés y aumentada con un prólogo y un apéndice por el Ilustrísimo Señor Obispo de Antinoë, Vicario Apostólico de Gibraltar [Doctor Juan Bautista Scandella]

      Turin, Imprenta de Pedro de Jacinto Marietti, 1870. 4to.; XVII pp., 108 pp., 1 h. Enc. moderna en media tela. El Doctor Scandella, nacido en Gibraltar, era miembro de una ilustre y antigua familia gibraltareña de orígen genovés. Estudió en Londres y en Roma y ejerció primeramente como Vicario en Corfu con el Ejército Británico volviendo a su tierra natal tras diez años esta vez al servicio del Obispo Hughes y siendo posteriormente consagrado Obispo de Antinoë en Londres en 1857 por el propio Cardenal Wiseman. Su prelatura gibraltareña está llena de hechos notables, como son su decision de hacer retornar pacíficamente a Gibraltar en 1864 la imágen original de Nuestra Señora de Europa que se hallaba en Algeciras desde 1704 junto a la construcción de su Capilla en Saint Bernard's Road y su entronización en 1866. Es notable igualmente su decidida apuesta por la educación y a él se deben las Escuelas de Rosia Parade, Catalan Bay, Lime Kiln Road y las de la Cripta de la Iglesia de Saint Joseph. Tomó tambien parte destacada en los trabajos del Concilio Vaticano en el Comité «De Fide», al que sería referida en marzo de 1870 la cuestión de la infalibilidad del Papa.

        South Australia. Standing Rules and Orders for regulating the public business of the House of Assembly. [and three other works]

      W.C. Cox, Adelaide 1870 - Four works bound together, duodecimo, owner's signatures on front end paper; fine, in a handsome crimson roan presentation binding, lettered in gilt to front and spine. A charming and quite remarkable little volume, with four apparently unrecorded works relating to the establishment and running of South Australia's first representative parliament. Particularly notable is the fact that the first two more substantial publications print the rules and orders for public business and private bills in the House of Assembly, and must have been of invaluable assistance to the volume's original owner, Sir George Strickland Kingston, who, a manuscript note explains, was the first Speaker.Sir George Strickland Kingston (1807-1880) had promoted South Australian colonisation in 1834, and was appointed deputy surveyor general to the new colony two years later. Although he wore many hats in the colony during his long career, he was first elected to the Legislative Council in 1851, where he cemented his reputation as a 'republican and a fiery supporter of civil and religious liberty' (ADB). In the first parliament under responsible government in 1857, he was elected South Australia's first Speaker in the House of Assembly.The volume includes the rule and orders for "regulating the public business" in the lower house (xviii, 116 pp.); the rules and orders relating to Private Bills (v, 23 pp.); an 1856 "Act to establish a Constitution for South Australia" (drop-title, 18 pp.); and an 1858 "Act to confer certain Powers and Privileges on the Houses of Parliament of South Australia" (drop-title, 7 pp.). All four works were printed by the Government Printer Cox.A similar work was prepared for the Legislative Council in 1878 by the printer Spiller, but all of these earlier House of Assembly-related work appears to be unrecorded.

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

      American Publishing Company, Hartford 1870 - 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.

        Inauguration du Canal du Suez. Voyage des Souverains, aquarelles d'après nature et portraits par Riou.

      [Paris, Lemercier & Cie., 1870]. - Folio (404 x 558 mm). 34 pp. With 17 lithographed plates (11 partly coloured by hand). (Bound with) II: Marius Fontane. Voyage pittoresque à travers l'Isthme de Suez, vingt-cinq grandes aquarelles d'après nature par Riou. Paris, Paul Dupont & E. Lachaud, [1870]. 76 (instead of 100) pp. With coloured map and 20 (of 25) chromolithographic plates. Contemporary red half morocco, giltstamped covers (arms of Ismail Pasha) and giltstamped title to spine. First edition. A chronicle of the elaborate festivities given for the inauguration of the Suez Canal (Qanat al-Suwais), opened in November 1869 after ten years of construction work - an event attended by the most prestigious occidental figures, finely illustrated by Riou, the Khedive's official painter. In 1854/56 Ferdinand de Lesseps obtained a concession from Sa'id Pasha, the Khedive of Egypt and Sudan, to create a company to construct a canal open to ships of all nations, which would allow ship transport between Europe and eastern Asia without navigation around Africa. Lesseps had used his friendly relationship with Sa'id, which he had developed while he was a French diplomat during the 1830s. In 1863, Sa'id was succeeded by his nephew Ismail, known as The Magnificent, who now oversaw the Egyptian portion of the Canal's construction. On his accession, he refused to ratify the concessions to the Canal company made by Said, insisting on numerous changes upon in the original grant. Ismail then used every available means, by his own powers of fascination and by judicious expenditure, to bring his personality before the foreign sovereigns and public. In 1867 he visited Paris and London, where he was received by Queen Victoria and welcomed by the Lord Mayor. While in Britain he also saw a British Royal Navy Fleet Review with the Ottoman Sultan. In 1869 he again paid a visit to Britain. When the Canal finally opened, Ismail held a festival of unprecedented scope, inviting dignitaries from around the world. Ismail himself performed the grand opening, together with French Empress Eugenie in the Imperial yacht "Aigle", piloted by Napoléon Coste who was bestowed by the Khedive the Order of the Medjidie. - The painter Riou also signed the plates of the second part: a detailed account of the canal construction by Marius Fontane, secretary to Lesseps. 500 copies of Fontane's work were printed, with 200 reserved for the Khedive Ismail, of which this is one. As the Khedive objected to the preface of Fontane's work, which gave credit for the canal to Lesseps, he had removed Lesseps' portrait frontispiece, the preface, and the final six gatherings (which included plates 21-25). - Occasional foxing to plates, otherwise an excellent copy. I: Blackmer 1198, 611. Heritage Library, Islamic Treasures, s. v. "Art". OCLC 458881758. Cf. Ibrahim-Hilmy II, 66 (1869). II: Cf. Ibrahim-Hilmy I, 235. Gay 2439 (both citing 25 plates).

        [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.

        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).

        GRAVURA ? SÉC. XIX ? SCUOLA D?ATENE / ESCOLA DE ATENAS / SCHOOL OF ATHENS.

      - Filippo Severati disegnó. Angelo Biggi impresse. [Impresso por Angelo Biggi. Publicado por: Pietro dé Brognoli]. Data: circa 1870-1880. Dimensões: 90x110 cm. Mancha gráfica: 72x90 cm. Gravura em chapa de metal segundo o fresco de Rafael (Escola Italiana) na Stanze do Vaticano. Técnica e materiais: gravação em papel. Legenda: « In segno de profondo omaggio il Cavalier Pietro dé Brognoli Romano D. D. D. a Sua Maestá Guglielmo 1º Imperatore d?Allemagna e Re di Prussia amatore e protettore delle Belle Arti ». Emoldurado em madeira. A imagem reproduz um detalhe o grande fresco pintado por Rafael numa parede da sala originalmente destinada a biblioteca, representando a alegoria da verdade racional. A cena consiste nas figuras de Platão (retrato à semelhança de Leonardo) e Aristóteles, cujas acções indicam os respectivos campos de investigação do pensamento clássico: o mundo ideal e o mundo real. A sua proximidade e o seu olhar aludem à possibilidade de uma reconciliação entre os dois sistemas filosóficos. Os filósofos e os estudiosos dispostos no espaço unificado de acordo com uma análise espacial representando a dialéctica e corrente de pensamento racional. A escolha da Escola de Atenas reforça e explica, com o poder evocativo da imagem, o significado do termo 'sinergia', usado aqui para significar o lugar do confronto de ideias de trabalho para alcançar o mesmo fim. (texto baseado em Dra. Elena Villani, historiador de arte). A Escola de Atenas, ou Scuola di Atene em italiano, é um dos mais famosos frescos do artista renascentista italiano Rafael. Foi pintado entre 1509 e 1510 como parte da comissão de Rafael para decorar as salas agora conhecidas como Stanze di Raffaello, no Palácio Apostólico do Vaticano. Os críticos têm sugerido que quase todos os grandes filósofos gregos podem ser encontrados na pintura, mas é difícil determinar quais são os retratados, já que Raphael não fez designações e não deixou documentos contemporâneos para explicar a pintura. As identidades de alguns dos filósofos na imagem, como Platão ou Aristóteles, são certas. Para além disso a identificação das figuras de Rafael foram sempre hipotéticas. Uma lista mais abrangente de identificações propostas é dada seguidamente: 1: Zenão de Citium 2: Epicuro 3: desconhecida (acredita-se que seja Rafael) 4: Boécio ou Anaximandro ou Empédocles? 5: Averroes 6: Pitágoras 7: Alcibíades ou Alexandre, o Grande? 8: Antístenes ou Xenofonte ou Timão? 9: Raphael 10: Aeschines ou Xenofonte? 11: Parménides? 12: Sócrates 13: Heráclito 14: Platão 15: Aristóteles 16: Diógenes de Sinope 17: Plotino 18: Euclides ou Arquimedes com os alunos 19: Estrabão ou Zoroastro? 20: Ptolomeu? 21: Protógenes. The School of Athens, after the fresco by Raphael (Italian School) in the Vatican Stanze (intermediary draughtsman: Filippo Severati). c. 1870 Printed by Angelo Biggi. Published by: Pietro de' Brognoli, after Raphael. Date 1870-1880 Technique and material: engraved on paper. Dimensions: paper 90x110 cm; graphic print: 72x90 cm Inscription content: « In segno de profondo omaggio il Cavalier Pietro dé Brognoli Romano D. D. D. a Sua Maestá Guglielmo 1º Imperatore d?Allemagna e Re di Prussia amatore e protettore delle Belle Arti ». In wooden frame. The image reproduces a detail of the large fresco painted by Raphael on a wall of the room, originally intended for the library, to represent the allegory of the rational Truth. The scene consisting on the figures of Plato (portrait in the likeness of Leonardo) and Aristotle whose actions indicate the respective fields of investigation, the pivot of classical thought: the ideal world and the earthly world. Their proximity and their eyes allude to the possibility of a reconciliation between the two philosophical systems. Philosophers and scholars, arranged in the grand unified space according to a rhythmic spatial scan that leaves you free gestures, representing the current dialectic of rational thought.
