        Pansy's Wish: A Christmas Fantasy, With a Moral

      Boston: Published for the Mass. Homeopathic Hospital by Marion & Co., n.d. [probably 1870] - First Edition; presumed second printing; original printed wrappers; an excellent copy. The Bibliography of American Literature (#270) devotes a lengthy discussion to the printing history of this book. In brief, the book was produced by the two young daughters of Aldrich's Beacon Hill neighbor and intimate friend, Dr. Israel Talbot for sale at a fair held to benefit the hospital. Apparently, the first printing was done on a cheap amateur press that Marion Talbot owned, and she reprinted the pamphlet on a more expensive "Novelty" press which she found for sale at the local Mechanics' Fair.

        Histoire d'Angleterre depuis l'avénement de Jacques II. Histoire du règne de Guillaume III

Half red morocco iced over. Binding unsigned master. Back to nerves ornate. Title, volume number with golden date tail. Double gold band on the flats. Golden head. Scattered spots. Very nice copy, perfectly prepared and beautifully decorative series. Whig history Macaulay had a profound impact, although later he was blamed his vision, that of belonging to a liberal Whig and analyzing the Revolution of 1668 as a glorious act for the future of England. The Whigs have always shown their opposition to royal absolutism. Macaulay's writings were praised for the quality of their prose and their main thesis, that of England constant march towards progress since the famous Revolution of 1668. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Illustrated with maps, portraits, views and other engravings. Rare to get all six volumes together. England became inhabited more than 800,000 years ago, as the discovery of flint tools and footprints at Happisburgh in Norfolk has revealed. The earliest evidence for early modern humans in North West Europe, a jawbone discovered in Devon at Kents Cavern in 1927, was re-dated in 2011 to between 41,000 and 44,000 years old. Continuous human habitation in England dates to around 13,000 years ago (see Creswellian), at the end of the last glacial period. The region has numerous remains from the Mesolithic, Neolithic, and Bronze Age, such as Stonehenge and Avebury. In the Iron Age, England, like all of Britain south of the Firth of Forth, was inhabited by the Celtic people known as the Britons, including some Belgic tribes (e.g. the Atrebates, the Catuvellauni, the Trinovantes, etc.) in the south east. In AD 43 the Roman conquest of Britain began; the Romans maintained control of their province of Britannia until the early 5th century. The end of Roman rule in Britain facilitated the Anglo-Saxon settlement of Britain, which historians often regard as the origin of England and of the English people. The Anglo-Saxons, a collection of various Germanic peoples, established several kingdoms that became the primary powers in present-day England and parts of southern Scotland. They introduced the Old English language, which largely displaced the previous British language. The Anglo-Saxons warred with British successor states in Wales, Cornwall, and the Hen Ogledd (Old North; the Brythonic-speaking parts of northern England and southern Scotland), as well as with each other. Raids by Vikings became frequent after about AD 800, and the Norsemen settled in large parts of what is now England. During this period, several rulers attempted to unite the various Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, an effort that led to the emergence of the Kingdom of England by the 10th century. Under the Tudors and the later Stuart dynasty, England became a world colonial power. During the rule of the Stuarts, the English Civil War took place between the Parliamentarians and the Royalists, which resulted in the execution of King Charles I (1649) and the establishment of a series of republican governments

        A collection of 17 broadsides, 2-page publications, and pamphlets.

      Various publishers/presses, 1870. For Guatemala the 1870s were years of a Liberal government and 19th-century Liberal reforms: confiscation of Church property and the concomitant excloistering of nuns and monks, improved sanitation, improved supervision of food handling, economic reforms, securing a free press, bringing telegraphy and the railroad to the nation, and improving the police force and public education. The decade began with the 1871 overthrow of Vicente Cerna Sandoval's Conservative regime and then saw other military actions including the putting down of the 1872 attempted coup d'etat by the recently ousted Conservatives; and because that failed plot was supported by the government of Honduras, Guatemala went to war with its neighbor. The collection touches on war, politics, reform, public health, and reaction to reform.

        Complete set of French nineteenth-century children's alphabet blocks.

      France: circa, 1870. Game comprising 24 timber blocks, each papered with illustrations on each face, with six chromolithographic paper guiding sheets each measuring 177 x 262 mm., original box with papered lid. French alphabet blocks, comprising a game for children wherein the blocks are rearranged on their different faces to form a picture alphabet with various items and animals including a zebra, duck, and a kangaroo. The set includes the original box accompanied by the six lithographic sheets that were dissected and pasted to the blocks (five of the sheets are loose, while one sheet is pasted to the front cover of the box itself). As such, these sheets form a guide for youngsters to reassemble the blocks accordingly, and learn the alphabet in the process. As the game is not titled, and none of its parts or packaging bears the details of the lithographer; details of its production are scant and it cannot be traced through the usual bibliographies. Nonetheless, it is most unusual to find an item for children of this age and composite nature in such good condition. Some repairs to reverse of the five paper guiding sheets.

        Grande dipinto a tempera raffigurante Lenin (in russo: ?????), pseudonimo di Vladimir Il'i? Ul'janov (in russo:

      1870. Grande dipinto policromo, su tela, in formato cm.151x78, raffigurante l'uomo politico sovietico a figura intera. Dipinto anonimo, di fattura accettabile. Dopo la rivoluzione d'ottobre Lenin (Simbirsk, 1870-1924) fu Primo Ministro della Repubblica russa dal 1917 al 1918 e della Repubblica Socialista Federativa Sovietica Russa dal 1918 al 1924 e dell'Unione Sovietica dal 1922 al 1924. "Ampiamente considerato una delle figure più significative e influenti del XX secolo, Lenin è stato oggetto postumo di un culto della personalità pervasivo all'interno dell'Unione Sovietica, fino alla sua dissoluzione avvenuta nel 1991. Divenne una figura ideologica dietro al marxismo-leninismo e quindi un'influenza di primo piano nel corso del movimento comunista internazionale. Personaggio controverso e altamente divisivo, i marxisti-leninisti considerarono Lenin come un rappresentate del socialismo e delle classi lavoratrici, mentre i critici, sia di sinistra sia di destra, lo vedono come il fondatore di una dittatura totalitaria responsabile della guerra civile e di una serie di violazioni dei diritti umani" (da Wikipedia).

        The Heathen Chinee.

      Chicago. The Western News Company. 1870. 9 loose black and white lithographs, 7 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches, with original decorative envelope (7 3/4 x 6 inches). Light soiling, edge tears and wear to envelope, plus previous owner's name and date (July 3 1871) in ink and pencil to front cover. Toning to first sheet, otherwise very clean and bright. The lithographic printing of this set is particularly strong. A superior example of this unusual set. This is the first printing of the first independent (pirated) issue of Harte's poem, which first appeared as "Plain Language from Truthful James" in the September 1870 issue of the Overland Monthly( which Harte edited). Harte evidently wrote the poem as a space-filler and a satire on the anti-Chinese immigration sentiments of the Irish immigrant community, as expressed by the card sharp Bill Nye on sheet 6, "we are ruined by chinese cheap labor." In fact it was to have the opposite from desired effect (see the excellent article by Gary Scharnhorst "Ways That Are Dark": Appropriations of Bret Harte's "Plain Language from Truthful James" in Nineteenth-Century Literature, Volume 51, No. 3 December 1996.) Hull's illustrations added fuel to the popular racist reading of the poem, embellishing the poem with a scene of mob violence.

        Architectural Drawings By W. Burges Architect.

      Folio (560 x 375 mm). Publisher's quarter crimson morocco over pebble-grain cloth covered boards, sometime expertly rebacked preserving the original gilt-lettered spine; title-page, dedication leaf, pp. 29, [1], 2, subscribers' list, 75 lithographed plates; lightly bumped at the extremities, else a very clean copy. Sole edition. Shortly after Burges had left the office of Edward Blore (to whom he had been articled) he spent a year and a half in France and Italy. It was his intention 'to write a sort of grammar of thirteenth-century architecture, and to illustrate it with carefully measured details... The plan of the book fell through, for I had scarcely been at work two months before the advertisement of M. Viollet le Duc's appeared, and I then continued the drawings for my own instruction and without any intention of publication ... to myself they were very valuable as they... taught me the why and the wherefore, which is the base of all architectural knowledge; so they were put into strong working bindings, and thus they remained in my bookcase until the year 1864'. The plates were lithographed under the direct supervision of Burges himself, who undertook to deface the stones as soon as the plates had been struck off. The volume was privately issued from his office at 15 Buckingham Street, Strand, with the promise 'above all, to allow no copies to go into the trade'. Weinreb Cat. 7.19

        La Terre, Etudes geographiques. Le jeu de globe.

      Nuremberg: Ch. Kapp, circa, 1870. Puzzle globe, standing 210 mm. tall, the globe sliced into six horizontal sections, the two poles present each as a full slice, the two tropics divided into four equal sections, and the two equatorial slices divided into six, each section with a printed descriptive note pasted on the upper side and a detailed map of one of the land masses on the lower (therefore describing the five continents on the upper and mapping them on the lower), the whole completed with a black enamel base and turned knob at the top, 23 pieces in total (including the base), some rubbing but in remarkably fine condition; complete with the original engraved timber box, dimensions 125 x 210 x 170 mm., paper label "Etudes geographiques" to the lid, and the printed instructions pasted on the interior. An exceptionally attractive puzzle globe, unusually fine and complete with its original box.The colourful printed label to the box designates this as 'Etudes geographiques', but it is described on the globe itself as simply 'La Terre'. A printed note on the globe confirms that the maker is Charles Kapp of Nuremberg, although the French captions strongly suggest that it was made for the export market. Not a great deal is known about Kapp - he is not, for instance, recorded in Tooley's Dictionary of Mapmakers - although he is thought to have been active from around 1860. We have not handled another Kapp globe before, nor, indeed, have we ever handled a comparable puzzle globe. It is certainly of considerable rarity, and the survival of such a globe, particularly in such exemplary original condition, marks this out as one of the more striking cartographic pieces that we have offered.One of the exquisite aspects of this puzzle is that each of the sections of the globe also features printed images to top and bottom: each of the five major regions, that is, has its own highly decorative cartouche and a regional map. The cartouche for "Océanie", for example, describes the region as the fifth part of the globe, and one which embraces all of the islands to the south-east of Asia. The cartouche further comments that Nouvelle Hollande is the largest of the islands, although the two figures flanking the cartouche are evidently depictions of men from the Pacific islands. Similarly, the map of the region shows the China Sea in the north-west right through to New Zealand in the south-east. "Nouvelle Hollande" is shown in some detail and with reasonable accuracy.The original box has had some neat minor repairs but is generally in excellent condition, although one of the two original brass hooks has long since snapped. The printed label on the lid depicts a scholar in a frock coat showing a table globe to a boy and a girl, while, at the teacher's left hand, are what appear to be the disassembled parts of a puzzle globe. The original printed instructions, tipped onto the underside of the lid, explain the process of assembling the globe, and assure the enthusiast that once the pieces are assembled with 'un peu d'exactitude l'une sur l'autre, vous veriez le dessin le plus parfait d'un globe de la terre.'.

        Flying Squadron on the Derwent River.

      Hobart? 1870. Stereoscope, card mount measuring 175 x 83mm. Rare stereoscopic photograph of the Royal Navy "Flying Squadron" on their visit to the Derwent River in January 1870. The Flying Squadron, under the command of Rear Admiral Hornby, was a travelling display of British naval supremacy which visited Sydney and Melbourne before arriving in Hobart on 2 January 1870. Although unarmed, the fleet played a role in asserting British naval power in the farther corners of the empire. This remarkable stereogram, captured from Government House overlooking the Derwent River, depicts five of the fleet vessels at anchor.This image is attributable to Hobart-based commercial photographer, grocer and entrepreneur Samuel Clifford (1827-1890). Clifford arrived in Tasmania from London in 1848 and quickly established himself as an industrious photographer and associate of innovative Hobart based stereographer Thomas J. Nevin. Clearly, Clifford was well established commercially before the visit of the Flying Squadron: an advertisement in the Tasmanian Almanac for 1869 boasts over 1,000 photographic views for sale available in album, cabinet and stereogram formats, including a deluxe suite celebrating the visit of the Duke of Edinburgh to Hobart in 1868.Although unsigned, and although this actual image does not appear to be otherwise recorded in Australian institutional holdings, Clifford was certainly the most prominent photographer associated with the visit of the Flying Squadron to Tasmanian waters, and the style of the present image accords well with known photographs by him. The collection of Sir William Crowther donated to the State Library of Tasmania, for example, contains several early photographs of the Flying Squadron by Clifford Samuel from a number of vantage points including Government House, the Domain, Rosny and Hobson's Bay. By the same token the pencil note to the rear, although partially obscured, appears to be in the same hand as at least one other similar scene (compare, for example, the inscription to the lower margin of the image in the Crowther collection also taken from the hillcrest at Government House). Both images in excellent condition, blank rear face flecked.

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

      Adelaide: W.C. Cox, 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.
