        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, With a Life of the the Author, An Introductory Discourse, Notes, and Supplemental Dissertations.

      Edinburgh: Adam and Charles Black, 1870. One volume edition of Adam Smith's magnum opus and cornerstone of economic thought with a Life of the the Author, An Introductory Discourse, Notes, and Supplemental Dissertations, written by J.R. McCulloch. Octavo, bound in full contemporary calf, frontispiece of Smith. Gilt titles and tooling to the spine, double gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, marbled endpapers, inner dentelles, all edges gilt. An exceptional example. Adam Smith's masterpiece, first published in 1776, is the foundation of modern economic thought and remains the single most important account of the rise of, and the principles behind, modern capitalism. "The history of economic theory up to the end of the nineteenth century consists of two parts: the mercantilist phase which was based not so much on a doctrine as on a system of practice which grew out of social conditions; and the second phase which saw the development of the theory that the individual had the right to be unimpeded in the exercise of economic activity. While it cannot be said that Smith invented the latter theory...his work is the first major expression of it. He begins with the thought that labour is the source from which a nation derives what is necessary to it. The improvement of the division of labour is the measure of productivity and in it lies the human propensity to barter and exchange...Labour represents the three essential elements-wages, profit and rent-and these three also constitute income. From the working of the economy, Smith passes to its matter -'stock'- which encompasses all that man owns either for his own consumption or for the return which it brings him. The Wealth of Nations ends with a history of economic development, a definitive onslaught on the mercantile system, and some prophetic speculations on the limits of economic control...The Wealth of Nations is not a system, but as a provisional analysis it is complete convincing. The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought" (PMM).

        Photograph of Alexandra “Xie” Kitchin

      C. L. Dodgson, 5 July 1870 - Albumen print (4 x 5 3⁄4 in.), cabinet card mount. Inscribed in various hands: “Xie” (ink), “H.H.,” “Age 7,” and “presented by Lewis Carroll” (pencil). Dodgson, better known as Lewis Carroll, who took up photography in 1856, was one of the most accomplished Victorian amateur photographers. He is most famous for his portraits of girls. On seeing one of his child portraits, Tennyson agreed to sit for him, saying, “You, I suppose, dream photographs.” Beginning in 1856 Dodgson took about three thousand negatives, mostly portraits, over the span of about twenty-five years. He mastered the difficult techniques of the collodion process and devoted himself to art and composition, achieving results equaling those of the best professionals of his day. “The apparently contradictory aspects of his personality, artistic and imaginative on the one hand, and pedantically careful on the other, became the mainspring of his creative output, both as Charles Dodgson, the photographer, and as Lewis Carroll, children’s author” (Taylor, in Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography). Xie (pronounced “Ecksy,” for Alexandra) was one of the most notable of Dodgson’s photographic subjects. She is now thought to have been six when this photograph was taken. Xie posed for Dodgson from age four until she turned sixteen. “Another of Lewis Carroll’s early favourites, was Miss Alexandra (Xie) Kitchin, daughter of the Dean of Durham. Her father was for fifteen years Censor of the unattached members of the University of Oxford, so that Dodgson had plenty of opportunities of photographing his little friend” (Life and Letters of Lewis Carroll). “His most frequent and favourite sitter was Alexandra Kitchin, better known by her pet name of ‘Xie.’ Over the years he photographed her more often and in a wider variety of costumes and settings than any other person” (Taylor). “With the exception of four pictures displayed at the 1858 annual exhibition of the Photographic Society of London, Dodgson had never exhibited his pictures, which were only known to a narrow circle of friends and acquaintances” (Fringier, “Out of Focus: A Portrait of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson” in Strange Sisters: Literature and Aesthetics in the Nineteenth Century). This is a splendid, representative example of Dodgson’s portraits of children, from the collection of his close friend Henry Holiday (see Provenance). Provenance: Henry Holiday, with his monogram on verso. Holiday, who illustrated The Hunting of the Snark, was a close friend of Dodgson. An album of Dodgson photographs belonging to Holiday is now at Princeton. Taylor & Wakeling, Lewis Carroll, Photographer 1891.

        Tri portreta tatar. [Three Portraits of Tatar People].

      Astrakhan early s 1870 - 3 albumen prints pasted on original cards, printed captions below, two bearing photographer's credit; two prints have minor scratches. Dimensions: app. 15 x 10.5 cm Three early portraits of the Tatar people taken by Vishnevskiy (fl.1860s-90s) that are likely to have been included in his album Astrakhan published in 1873. Working in his studio in Astrakhan from 1861, he was one of the first to produce photographic albums with views and characters of the province. Vishnevskiy presented one of such albums to Aleksandr II during his visit to Astrakhan in 1871 and in return received a diamond ring from the Tsar. Vishnevskiy's studio was a successful business, which after his death was run by his wife up until 1911. Being an important historical record, Vishnevskiy's portraits and views of Astrakhan constitute a significant part of the collection of the State Astrakhan Historical Museum.

        The Mystery of Edwin Drood

      Chapman & Hall, Piccadilly, London 1870 - Copy of all the part work magazines rather unusually bound together as one probably at a later stage, maybe as a gift to someone. The binding has been done fairly recently, probably within the last twenty years, and very skillfully in light brown paper covered boards with a maroon cloth spine, titles to the spine in gilt. All of the original covers and advertisements are at the rear of the book and all of the text of the story has been inserted at the binding stage to the front, along with title page and contents page. The effect has been to provide a continuous 190 pages of the story and to push the adverts all together at the rear. The whole bound book is the housed in a purpose made slip case/box which completely closes over the spine. In actually fact, although the purist collector may prefer to have the parts in their original form, this has created a truly unusual and unique version in itself. It's one I'd really like to keep in an ideal world! There is some mild to moderate foxing throughout but nothing severe enough to detract from the collectabilty of the book. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Reconnoitring in Abyssinia.

      London: Smith, Elder & Co.,, 1870. A Narrative of the Proceedings of the Reconnoitring Party, prior to the Arrival of the Main Body of the Expeditionary Field Force. Octavo. Original red diagonal-ribbed cloth, titles and decoration to spine gilt, decorative black frame to front board enclosing decorative gilt octofoil, similar frame in blind to rear, all edges gilt, yellow surface-paper endpapers. Housed in a custom blue slipcase. Tinted lithographic frontispiece after Rolfe, finished by hand as issued, 9 similar plates, large linen-backed folding lithographic map to rear, 2 wood-engravings to the text. Contemporary prize inscription from Lonsbury College, commercial college in Upper Clapton, to front free endpaper verso. Spine faded, minor rubbing to headcaps and corners, sides very slightly darkened, with a few trivial marks, mild spotting to margins of frontispiece and a few other plates, upper outer corner of pp. 123-6 creased, the text unaffected. An excellent copy. First and only edition, uncommon: nine copies traced in UK libraries, just five other complete copies traced in commerce in the last 50 years, this a remarkably clean and fresh copy from the celebrated travel library of Franklin Brooke-Hitching, with his pencilled initials to the front free endpaper. Wilkins "commanded the Royal Engineers throughout the Abyssinian expedition of 1868, where the difficult terrain required engineering skills of the highest order. He was mentioned in dispatches by Lord Napier of Magdala for his 'invaluable and important services', and was appointed aide-de-camp to the queen, with the rank of colonel in the army" (ODNB). His engaging account is attractively illustrated with lithographed views of Aden and the Eritrean coast on the outward journey, in addition to several Abyssinian scenes.

        A Journal of a Tour of Discovery Across the Blue Mountains, New South Wales, in the Year 1813. Second edition

      Gibbs, Shallard & Co., Sydney 1870 - Duodecimo, 46 pp.; in a neat old binding of half calf and marbled boards, with the original printed front wrapper bound in. The scarce second edition of this Australian exploration classic: the original account of the first great feat of Australian inland exploration. A series of previous attempts had failed to find a path into the hinterland and for twenty-five years the formidable barrier of the Blue Mountains had locked the settlers out of the interior.A landholder in the Parramatta district, Blaxland set out in 1813 to conquer the Blue Mountain barrier and seek out new pastures to the west of the ranges. With his companions Lawson and Wentworth, he finally accomplished his mission on 31 May 1813, sighting rich lands from the summit of the mountain later called Mount Blaxland. From the top they could see forests and grasslands capable of supporting the colony's herds for the next thirty years. Surveyor George Evans, on direct instructions from Macquarie, followed the path blazed by Blaxland and broke through to the magnificent pastures of the Bathurst Plains; within a year William Cox had completed his road to the new territories. By 1815, a settlement had been made at Bathurst.The first edition of this book is one of the great Australian rarities - about a dozen copies are known, and its value is in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. This second edition was published by Blaxland's son because, as he noted, copies of the first edition were "no longer to be had". 34 years later Blaxland's grandson was to publish a third edition (Maitland, 1904) because by then "the two previous editions [were] no longer obtainable" Provenance: Private collection (Sydney). Neat repair to upper corner of front wrapper. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      [Washington, DC] 1870 - Original watercolor, charcoal and chalk drawing on canvas, 24.5 x 29.5 in., glazed and framed. Signed by the artist. The young boy is well dressed in a double-breasted suit and bow tie, with button-up boots. He stands on a tiled terrace, one hand one a balustrade, the other tucked into his jacket pocket staring determinedly off into the distance. Through the surrounding trees and shrubbery is a view of a small fountain and the Capitol Building on a slight hill. Oscar Robert, born in Copenhagen, Denmark emigrated to the United States around 1864 and settled in Washington, D.C. where he remained for the rest of his life, according to a brief biography in Virgil McMahan's "The Artists of Washington, D.C. 1796-1996," [Wash., DC: 1995]. He worked in oils, watercolor and crayon. During the late 1880s he shared a studio and gallery with Earl Keyser. Boyd's 1887 Directory for Washington lists their gallery at 307 7th St. NW. McMahan states that this portrait is the only one of his works known. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
