According to a census done by John Howell Books, no other copy in public knowledge has as many as 202 plates such as this copy, making it safe to assume that this is the most complete and finest copy known.

Wrappers foxed and torn. Internally clean. Very good. Bibliographer Merrill J. Mattes' copy, with his pencil ownership signature on a front free endpaper. A singular work of California art and iconography, VISCHER'S PICTORIAL OF CALIFORNIA LANDSCAPE. stands alone in its depiction of the state in the second half of the 19th century. Called by Weber "preeminently the greatest artist in the early history of our state," Vischer created dozens of drawings of California scenes and scenery from on-the-spot observations, and reproduced them in albumen photographs, with accompanying text descriptions. "The drawings, executed in pencil and wash, cover a wide range of subjects, including the rare commemoration of the brief introduction of camels to California. Of special importance are the drawings of the missions which interested Vischer throughout his life" - Howell. Cowan notes that few copies of Vischer's work contain precisely the same number of plates, and that statement is born out by the present copy, which features 163 separate mounted albumen photographs, divided into five sections. This is among the largest number of photographs of any Vischer album. The first section, on landscape, is the largest, with sixty-one photographs including scenes in forests and mining camps, the Sierra Nevada, Lake Tahoe, Truckee, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, several California missions (a great interest of Vischer), Donner Lake, the San Bernardino mountains, and more. This is followed by a section of twenty-eight photographs of trees and forest scenes, including giant Sequoias and redwoods, the Mammoth tree grove, and Cypress trees. Next comes a section of fourteen photographs of "Grand Features," depicting the scenery of Yosemite, the Sierra Nevadas, Donner Lake, Mount Shasta, and coastal views. A large section follows of forty- six photographs of scenes depicting the life, traffic, and customs of California, with views of the Napa Valley, farming scenes, the mission at Santa Barbara, rodeos, cattle roundups, emigrant camps, mines, and whaleships and Navy vessels in San Francisco harbor. The final section consists of fourteen reproductions of Carleton Watkins prints of the Industrial Fair of 1864. Of Vischer's work, Miles and Reese say: "there are no contemporary publications quite comparable to them in their eccentric combination of media; the confusion is compounded by the bewildering array of formats, issues, and reissues the artist ultimately produced." Also included here is the accompanying text volume of VISCHER'S PICTORIAL., as well as his text on the missions of California, published in 1872. Edward Vischer (1809-78) migrated from Germany to Mexico at the age of nineteen, working for commercial houses, and acting as the supercargo on trading voyages to Pacific ports in the Americas and Asia. In the 1840s, Vischer was visiting California regularly and began producing paintings and sketche

        The Georgia Governor Informs New York that His State has Ratified the 14th Amendment

      1870 - Printed Letter Signed, as Governor of Georgia, Executive Department, Atlanta, February 3, 1870, addressed to the Governor of New York. "I have the honor to transmit herewith Joint Resolution ratifying the proposed 'Fourteenth Constitutional Amendment' passed by the General Assembly of the State of Georgia, February 2d, A.D. 1870."The 14th Amendment to the Constitution guaranteed former slaves citizenship and equal protection under the law. It was adopted as part of the Constitution on July 28, 1868, after ratification by three quarters of the states. For the former Confederate states, the Amendment's ratification was a prerequisite for a state's readmission to the Union and the seating of its members in Congress. After Reconstruction, the Amendment was largely disregarded in the South, until the landmark Civil Rights cases of the twentieth century. Historical BackgroundFollowing Lincoln's assassination, President Andrew Johnson added ratification of the 13th Amendment, which had abolished slavery nationwide, to the conditions required for Confederate states to be readmitted to the Union. While unwilling to support civil and voting rights for African Americans, Johnson was quite willing to readmit the former Confederacy without any major reform of their governments. Fearing a return to de facto slavery, Congressional Republicans drafted and passed the 14th Amendment to extend legal protections to the freedmen and women. Some of the most substantial elements of this complicated and far-reaching amendment are its granting of full citizenship rights to "All persons born or naturalized in the United States," prohibitions against denying anyone "life, liberty, or property without due process of law," and guarantees that everyone enjoy "equal protection of the laws." The 14th Amendment further guaranteed that the census would count the "whole number" of males over 21 years of age to determine Congressional representation, eliminating the notorious "3/5 Clause" of the original Constitution. Other sections placed restrictions on former Confederates regarding office-holding, and provisions for debt.As in the case of the 13th Amendment, ratification of the 14th Amendment was required for the former Confederate states to be brought back into the Union with full representation. While granting immediate citizenship rights, the amendment did nothing to stop extralegal racial violence against African Americans during and after Reconstruction. Additionally, while supporters hoped that guarantees of citizenship rights, due process, and equal protection would lead to sustained increases in black voting, the federal government proved weak-willed when southern states denied blacks the right to vote-and even more so when those states ignored the 15th Amendment (1870), which explicitly gave the freed slaves voting rights. It would take nearly a century for the Reconstruction Amendments to be fully applied to all citizens.In its entirety, the 14th Amendment overturned historic injustices such as the 1857 Dred Scott case that said blacks could not be citizens, and opened new areas of law. The due process clause has extended most of the Bill of Rights to the states, and the equal protection clause has been the foundation for Brown v. Board of Education (1954), which ended racial segregation, and Reed v. Reed (1971), which ended sex discrimination in everything from employment to high school sports.Rufus Brown Bullock (1834-1907) was elected Governor of Georgia in 1868 by defeating former Confederate General (and future head of the Ku Klux Klan) John B. Gordon. Born in New York, he was the first Republican governor of Georgia, a supporter of the Reconstruction Amendments to the Constitution, and as a result, was vilified as a carpetbagger. He resigned and fled to New York after a "Lost Cause" campaign returned a Democratic majority to the Georgia legislature, but returned in 1876 to be acquitted of corruption cha.

        Surveying Brig Rapid in Rapid Bay October 12th 1836. Watercolor after William Light.

      London: 1870 - This watercolor appears to be based on one executed by William Light, one of the founding fathers of Adelaide, and the person who single-handedly situated & designed the city. "Light's original watercolor of this painting was exhibited in Adelaide in 1848 'but has since disappeared. In fact at the Jubilee Exhibition in 1886 a copy of it was displayed. It may have been the one painted by Walter Stevenson in London in 1870.' (Elder, David. "The Art of William Light", 1987, p. 102). Elder concludes, "The original watercolor was perhaps the one he referred to in his diary on 20 March 1839, 'Finished the Rapid sailing up Gulf St Vincent'." There is a pencil sketch of the scene in one of Light's notebooks in the State Library of South Australia. This appears to be the painting by Walter Stevenson in London in 1870. We purchased it many years ago in London, and noted on the verso "W. Stevenson Kensington". The verso adds the note "Surveying Brig Rapid in Rapid Bay October 12th 1836" and "These notes copied from back of mount which was very soiled. S. Button 11/12/62" The stickers used to fix the picture to the mat appear to be the borders from stamp sheets, with some printing on them. Watercolor, on wove paper, 25 x 35 cm. Very good condition.

        The Mystery of Edwin Drood

      London: Chapman and Hall. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST EDITION in book form, exquisitely bound by Bayntun Riviere. In April 1870, "there appeared the first installment of Dickens's new novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, set mainly in Rochester ('Cloisterham') and planned for publication in eleven monthly instalments, the last one to be a double number. It was to be a murder story, 'the originality of which was to consist in the review of the murderer's career by himself at the close, when its temptations were to be dwelt upon as if, not he the culprit, but some other man were the tempted' (Forster, 808). It was the culmination of Dickens's lifelong fascination with the demeanour and psychology of murderers and he was, his daughter Katey remembered, 'quite as deeply fascinated and absorbed in the study of the criminal Jasper as in the dark and sinister crime that has given the book its title' ('"Edwin Drood" and the last days of Charles Dickens', Pall Mall Magazine, June 1906, 644). Drood was very favourably received, selling 10,000 more copies than Our Mutual Friend and showing in its descriptive passages, Forster believed, that Dickens's 'imaginative power was at its best' (Forster, 808). The story was to have been illustrated by Katey's husband, Charles Collins, but ill health compelled him to withdraw after designing the monthly-part cover and he was replaced by Luke Fildes. Dickens lived long enough to complete only six numbers of the novel, and soon a whole Drood 'industry' (which still flourishes today) grew up, concerned with providing a plausible solution to the mystery. 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" (Dictionary of National Biography). With engraved frontispiece portrait, engraved title, and twelve illustrations by S. L. Fildes. London: Chapman & Hall, 1870. Octavo, recent full polished crushed morocco by Bayntun Riviere, with gilt-stamped portrait of Dickens on front board and gilt-stamped Dickens signature on rear board; gilt dentelles, marbled enepapers, all edges gilt. Tiny repair to corner of last leaf of text; text exceptionally clean. A beautiful copy.

        The Great Mississippi Steamboat Race

      New York: Currier & Ives, 1870. AN ICONIC IMAGE OF A STEAMBOAT RACE ON THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER Paper size: 10" x 13" New York 1870 he Mississippi riverboat was second only to the cowboy as the quintessential American product. Indeed, Gulf Coast steamboats achieved such international popularity that wagers were placed as far away as Berlin and Vienna on the outcomes of the famous steamboat races down the Mississippi. Besides their profound economic and technological importance, steamboats also figured as important thematic elements in nineteenth-century European and American art, literature, speech and song. For example, within the works of Joseph Conrad, Charles Dickens, Edna Ferber, Jack London, Herman Melville, Eugene O'Neill, Robert Louis Stevenson and, of course, Mark Twain, steamers served variously as symbols for the contemporary pride and progress in technology, as metaphors for the conflict between man and nature, and as elements of plot and setting.This work wonderfully encapsulates the period of the steamboat's transportational and cultural dominance in the United States, a position soon to be usurped by the mighty railroads. .

        The 104th Psalm

      London: Vincent Brooks Day & Son, circa, 1870. Folding panorama in its original cloth boards, chromo-lithographic plates pasted together to form one continuous panorama 113 x 3660 mm.; fine, lettered in gilt to front. Unusually fine Victorian panorama. Beautiful coloured-lithographic panorama, as issued in its original decorated cloth boards: the series of 24 connected panels combine to illustrate Psalm 104, forming a continuous panorama over three-and-a-half metres in total. This copy is unusually fine; where seen, these fragile works more commonly display significant wear. The work has been featured in some detail online, testament to its visual impact (see for example a handsome commentary including a full reproduction at the Bridwell Library of Southern Methodist University in the USA). The panorama begins with an image of the psalmist, King David, covering his head in reverence to the Lord; at the end, he appears again, wearing a crown and playing his harp within his palace in Jerusalem. The remainder of the panorama consists of various landscapes teeming with life, as described in the psalm, and includes a scene showing the "leviathan" or whale. The panorama was designed by Susan Maria Ffarington (1809-1894), who illustrated several devotional books for children and also designed windows for parish churches near her estate at Worden Hall, Lancashire.

Elaborately gilt dentelles. Top edge gilt. Expertly and near invisibly rebacked. A fine copy.Charles James Apperley (1777-1843), English sportsman and sporting writer, better known as Nimrod, the pseudonym under which he published his works on the chase and on the turf. A devoted fox-hunter, around 1821 Apperley began to contribute a series of articles to The Sporting Magazine, under the pseudonym of "Nimrod," that covered horse races, hunt meets and other sporting events. His references to the personalities of the people he knew or met at such events helped to double the circulation of the magazine within a few years. Mr. Pittman, the proprietor of The Sporting Magazine, gave Nimrod a handsome salary and defrayed all the expenses of his tours. He also gave Nimrod a stud of hunters. After Pittman's death, the proprietors of the magazine sued Apperley for the money that had been advanced. To avoid imprisonment, Apperley moved to Calais in 1830, where he supported himself by writing. Apperley is best known for his two books, The Life of a Sportsman, and Memoirs of the Life of John Mytton, both of which were illustrated with colored engravings by Henry Thomas Alken. The Plates:1.

        [A complete set of] CopeÕs Tobacco Plant. Vol. I #1 through vol. II #130

      Liverpool: Cope Brothers, 1870-1881. 3 vols., folio, later half red morocco, gilt tops, a bit worn but very good. A complete set, evidently extremely uncommon thus. The Arents copy with his personal bookplate, the collection bookplate, and the previous bookplate of Coker College Library (dated 1908), in all three volumes. Amongst the thousands of writers on tobacco, two pieces by Whitman (one prose, one verse) are included. Ã’Whitman probably was not aware of his first connection with Cope's Tobacco Plant, an English trade magazine published by the tobacco firm of Cope Brothers and Company in Liverpool, England. Edited by John Fraser, who was in charge of advertising for the company, the magazine was published from March 30, 1870 through January 1881, when it suddenly ceased publication. The January 1872 issue carried a series of poems about the pleasures of tobacco and smoking in the style of famous poets; one, falsely attributed to Whitman, was clearly meant to be a joke. The author of the poem is unknown. Although there is no record of what happened next, Fraser, an admirer of Whitman, evidently then invited the poet to submit some of his actual work. Whitman obliged by sending "Three Young Men's Deaths." That prose piece, which later appeared in Specimen Days, was published in April 1879, and in a letter to Fraser on November 27, 1878, Whitman asked for copies of the magazine to be sent to several British poets and writers, including William Rossetti and Tennyson. In the meantime, the British writer James Thomson published a series of five biographical essays on Whitman in the magazine throughout 1880. No correspondence survives that explains the appearance of Whitman's next contribution to Cope's, "The Dalliance of the Eagles," which appeared in November 1880 and for which he received payment of $10.00.Ó (The Walt Whitman Archive).
