Boards scuffed and edgeworn, hinges cracked, worm holes on inner margin, scattered foxing and soiling, one leaf with a marginal chip to the corner, a few signatures started, still overall a good copy of a scarce book. 8vo. Illus. with 21 plates. Much of this novel relates to California in the gold rush days, and there is much about well known California characters such as Joaquin Murieta" (Streeter Sale V, p.2034). "This book first appeared in Madrid, Spain, as a serial in 1871-1872. The author writes of early California in a narrative style, but most of his book consists of flights of fancy. In the second part of the first volume he weaves Joaquín Murieta into the story and deals with him at length, following the details of the California Police Gazette version of Murieta?s life very closely-so closely, in fact, that certain parts are merely translations from the English text into Spanish. He calls upon his imagination in relating Murieta?s early life and ancestry," (Adams, Six-Guns and Saddle Leather, p.475). Rare. Last at auction in the Streeter Sale in 1968. Howes N170 (aa). Streeter Sale V: 2933. Palau 192632. Adams 1616. Cowan II, p. 455.

        Post Route Map of the States of Michigan and Wisconsin with Adjacent Parts of Ohio Indiana Illinois Iowa and Minnesota

      Washington: 1871 [updated 1 June 1873]. Engraved map on two sheets, period hand-colouring in outline, sectioned and linen-backed at a contemporary date. Sheet size: 41 1/2 x 62 1/4 inches. Housed in a contemporary brown cloth slipcase, title stamped in gilt on the covers. Provenance: John Henry Devereux, 1832-1886, President of the Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, and Indianapolis Railway (name stamped in gilt on the slipcase). Rare official Post Route map of the Midwest, owned by the Civil War General in charge of all Union railroad lines and the President of a major railroad company following the war. Nicholson, who was responsible for setting up the topographical department of the Post Office during the Civil War, went on to serve as the official Topographer to the Post Office for 22 years. His maps focus on the postal routes and, naturally, towns, as well as political boundaries and railroad routes. Lakes, rivers and other waterways provide the only topographical detail. The postal routes are colour-coded to indicate frequency with which they are used (e.g., black for six times per week, blue for three times per week), with rail routes differentiated by cross-hatching. The distance for each route segment is also indicated. The map includes a legend and an inset table of distances between post offices. The official Post Office Department logo and motto ('With Celerity Certainty and Security') is also present. Nicholson's maps were originally published between 1866-1876, but it was essential to keep updating them, and to this end the map also includes a printed note "The Service on this diagram brought up to date of", followed by a space in which a manuscript date has been added. The relationship between the Post Office and the railroads began very early. The first known contract was in 1832, just two years after the maiden voyage of the nation's first steam locomotive, for transport of mail between Philadelphia and Lancaster, PA. On July 7, 1838, an act of Congress declared all rail routes to be postal routes, and the railways rapidly became the backbone of the postal system. While these maps were distributed throughout the Post Office Department, it is not clear how often these early issues of the maps were given or sold to non- governmental users, like the present. Devereux, the original owner of this map, was the President of the Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Indianapolis Railway at the time of publication. He had served in the Civil War as the officer in charge of all the Union rail lines, eventually achieving the rank of General. Phillips, p. 428 (1881 issue); Cf. Virginia W. Mason.

        PRINCESS AND THE GOBLIN

      1871. Very Good. MACDONALD, George. THE PRINCESS AND THE GOBLIN. New York: George Routledge and Sons, 1871. First American edition of MacDonald's second full-length fairy tale, following At the Back of the North Wind, which had appeared in the preceding year. 30 wood-engraved illustrations by Arthur Hughes. Octavo. iv,315 pp. Publisher's green cloth binding with pictorial decorations on spine and front cover, based on text illustrations by Hughes, in gilt and black. Off-white coated endpapers. All edges gilt. Binder's ticket ('Bound by Burns & Co.') on rear pastedown. The decoration of the American binding is almost identical with the Strahan & Co. first-edition binding, including the crescent moon and flaming torch in gilt outside of the front cover circle, and with the publisher's name gilt-stamped at the base of the spine - only in this case it is Routledge. The difference occurs on the spine where the entire title is gilt-stamped, as opposed to the Strahan copies on which the the word 'goblin' is printed in black. The binding is rubbed along edges, lightly abraded on surfaces, and is slightly askew. The bookblock is sound but has been glued into the case slightly lower than it should be, by about 5 mm. Pencil gift inscription at head of title-page with the date (1876) written in ink below it. Text leaves are clean but for some light foxing to a few pages near the beginning. A rare edition, the existence of which was uncertain, and the 1872 edition being cited as the first. In about very good condition. (Shaberman 48).

        Notes on The Natural History of the Strait of Magellan

      Edinburgh,: Edmonston and Douglas,, 1871.. Octavo, with a coloured folding map and 21 lithograph plates; Parliamentary library stamps, some foxing, hinges tender, but a good copy in the original green cloth. Scarce account of an exploration of the Strait of Magellan. Cunningham was appointed naturalist aboard the Nassau, a steamer sent to work on the survey of the Strait and the adjacent channels. This publication gives a journal narrative of the voyage interspersed with natural history notes, and includes their interactions with the native inhabitants of Patagonia, the so-called 'Fuegians'. The narrative provides interesting detail on the lifestyle, hunting and wigwam shelters of these fascinating people, who were thoroughly desensitised to rain, cold and exposure according to Cunningham's account.Five of the plates are fine tinted lithograph views of the region, after drawings by Cunningham's shipmates F. Le B. Bedwell and the Hon. F.C.P. Vereker, and were printed by Waterston in Edinburgh, while the other 16 lithographs are of natural history subjects after drawings by the author.Cunningham's own interest was chiefly the ornithology of the area - after the voyage he published various pieces on the subject in the Ibis - but he also covers the area's botany, mentioning his collections of plants in the Royal Herbarium, Kew and promising articles on the Reptiles, Amphibia, Fishes, Mollusca, and Crustacea in Linnean Transactions. His natural history connections were evidently impeccable: he thanks Hooker, Huxley, Newton, Flower, Sclater, Salvin, Gray, G¸nther and Baird.Not in the catalogue of the Hill collection.

        A Descriptive Catalogue of the Marine Reptiles of the Oxford Clay

      Part 2; pp. xixiv, 206, photo. frontis., 73 figs., 13 lithographic platesLondon: British Museum (Natural History),very rare only 25 copies all worldOne of the classics of palaeontological literature. This copy originated from New Zealand and is likely to have been the copy of Charles Leeds. "Nearly all the remains of marine Reptilia of the Oxford Clay enumerated and described in this catalogue were collected from the numerous clay-pits near Peterborough worked for the making of bricks, . A few of the earlier specimens were discovered by Charles E. Leeds, but the greater part of the collection was made by his brother Mr Alfred N. Leeds, of Eyebury, who soon became associated with him. It is more than forty years since the collection was begun by Mr Charles E. Leeds, and some of his first discoveries were described and figured by Phillips in his Geology of Oxford and the Valley of the Thames, published in 1871. He left for New Zealand in 1887, but his brother has continued the work to the present day with the most astonishing results. Both in the number of species represented and in the perfect preservation of their remains, the Leeds collection far surpasses any other single collection of Mesozoic vertebrates, especially one in which all the specimens are from one horizon and from a restricted area. Not only marine forms, but remains of terrestrial reptiles, including several species of dinosaurs, have been obtained" the covers of the book are in bad situation but the inside of the book is  very good brown cover

        Three rare pieces relating to Cook's memorial at Kurnell, Botany Bay

      Sydney,: various dates, 1871, 1881, &, 1899.. Three ephemeral pieces, a hand-lettered illuminated address and two publications; preserved in a handsome folding calf box. An interesting group of three rare pieces of ephemera relating to the commemoration of Captain Cook at Kurnell and including important pieces relating to Thomas Holt's obelisk, built in 1871. The highlight of the group is undoubtedly the manuscript illuminated presentation address to HRH Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale, on the occasion of his visit in 1881.The prince was, at the time of his visit to Australia, second-in-line to the throne, but predeceased both Victoria and his father Edward VII. Scandal surrounds his murky death in 1891, and he remains a popular - if unlikely - candidate for Jack the Ripper. As this small group shows, the second half of the nineteenth-century saw Kurnell become the focus of the burgeoning fascination with Cook.1. "Presented to His Royal Highness Prince Albert Victor Christian Edward by the Honorable Thomas Holt... in commemoration of a visit to the Monument of Captain Cook Botany. 9th August 1881". Quarto illuminated address folded to 4 pp. booklet, a few spots but fine, hand-drawn and coloured, lettering heightened in gilt. Presentation address with hand-drawn view of the memorial. Ornamental borders by Mrs Forde of Sydney, and the address illuminated by George Relph.2. "Captain Cook's Landing in Botany Bay, with Fac-simile of Cook's Chart... Extracted from The Illustrated Sydney News and Sydney Morning Herald", Sydney: Gibbs, Shallard, and Co., n.d. but 1871. Square octavo, 12 pp., a few spots, modern bookplate and owner's stamp, owner's name torn away from front wrapper, not affecting text; printed chart and engraving, very good. Shows the obelisk erected by Thomas Holt at Cook's landing place, as well as a version of Cook's chart of Botany Bay. The text has long quotes from Cook's journals, as well as epigraphs from the poetry of Barron Field; this must be one of the earliest printings of any section of Cook's original journals. Rare: held in National Library and State Library of New South Wales (Beddie, 3045).3. "Dedication of Captain Cook's Landing Place. Kurnell, Botany Bay", Sydney, Department of Lands, November 1899. Small octavo, folding plate of the landing place, frontispiece, folding chart of Botany Bay, illustrated, bookplate; in dark roan with gilt lettering, scuffed at spine. Attractive souvenir of the grand opening of the Kurnell monument to Captain Cook by the Lieutenant Governor, Sir Frederick Darley (Beddie, 3053).

        The Musci and Hepaticae of the United States East of the Mississippi River. Contributed to the second edition of Gray's Manual of Botany

      New York & Chicago: Ivison, Blakeman, Taylor, & Company, 1871. Octavo. (8 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches). 8 engraved plates printed on blue paper, extra- illustrated with 14 related engraved plates by or after Sprague. (Old dampstain throughout to lower margin). Original green cloth, covers with triple blind fillet border, the upper cover with central blind-stamped oval publisher's device, spine lettered in gilt. A "foundation for the general study of bryology in the United States." (Asa Gray): a rare, separately-issued extract from Gray's Manual of Botany. "When the second edition of Gray's Manual of the Botany of the Northern United States was in preparation, Mr. Sullivant was asked to contribute to it a compendious account of the Musci and Hepaticae of the region; which he did, in the space of about a hundred pages, generously adding, at his sole charge, eight copper-plates, crowded with illustrations of the details of the genera, thus enhancing vastly the value of his friend's work, and laying a foundation for the general study of bryology in the United States, which then and thus began " (Asa Gray, "William S. Sullivant: A Biographical Note", American Journal of Science & Arts, 1873, p. 3). The present work contains Sullivant's contribution in full. It was first published in this form in 1856, and is here re-printed for the first time. The extra plates by Sprague are mostly of Grasses and Ferns: their numbering (from I-XIV) suggests that they preceded Sullivant's plates (numbered XVI-XXII). At the time of his death William Starling Sullivant was the foremost authority on mosses. He is now best known for a series of works, published in limited numbers, and beautifully illustrated with dried specimens of the mosses he was describing (Musci Alleghanienses; Musci Boreali Americaniquorum specimina exsiccata ediderunt W. S. Sullivant et L. Lesquereux; Musci Appalachiani and Musci Cubetises). In addition to the present work, he also provided descriptions for the mosses collected during the Rodgers' U. S. North Pacific Exploring Expedition and the Wilkes expedition. Meisel, III:p. 476 (1856 edition, not noting the publication of this 1871 edition); not in Nissen; cf. Stafleu & Cowan VI, 13.403

        Three ?vignette? watercolours of Indian children

      Approximately 8 x 10-1/2 inches image area Original watercolour matted, framed and glazed Considered to be the ?Dean of Desert Artists,? as well as one of the most influential cartoonists of his time, James Swinnerton?s life spanned nearly a century. In addition to painting hundreds of Southwestern desert scenes, Swinnerton was America's first newspaper comic artist and was the creator of numerous series and characters. His long journey was in essence a story of two lives, both defined by distinctive and accomplished legacies ?one of a cartoonist of historical significance and the other of a fine artist devoted to faithfully portraying the subject matter he loved best. On September 19, 1871, the younger James Guilford Swinnerton married a ?winsome, young ? Canadian named Jennie Wise. Four years later their only child, James Guilford Swinnerton Jr., was born. When Jennie died fifteen months later young Jimmy was taken in by his grandparents in San Jose where he remained until his father remarried in 1879. By the age of fifteen Swinnerton's grandparents had become too old to care for him and his dislike for his stepmother too intense to live with. He decided to run away. In 1891 sixteen year old Jimmy Swinnerton enrolled in the Mark Hopkins School of Design, the San Francisco Art Association?s art school. In retrospect the school?s 1891 class was a remarkable lot. Swinnerton?s classmates included eventual Western art icons Maynard Dixon and Edward Borein and landscape painter Xavier Martinez. Also present was Homer Davenport, who would later rise to fame as a political cartoonist. Dixon, unwilling to deal with the abrasive personality of the school?s director Arthur F. Matthews, left after just a few months, but not before developing and maintaining a lifelong friendship with Swinnerton. The two frequently made sketching trips together into northern Arizona and the Colorado Desert. By chance, some of his caricatures were seen by William Randolph Hearst. Impressed by what he saw, Hearst hired Swinnerton as a sketch artist for The San Francisco Examiner in 1892. After hearing that Swinnerton was going to work for a newspaper, William Keith allegedly refused to ever speak to him again. At The Examiner Swinnerton?s caricature skills naturally led him to cartooning. Swinnerton?s drawings soon appeared throughout the paper in sections ranging from the editorial to the sports pages, but his most well known figures were the ?Weather Bears,? sketches of bear cubs which appeared on The Examiner?s daily weather report. Eventually Swinnerton began drawing images of small children to accompany the bears, and then began placing two frames together connected by a banner which spanned the page Fine condition Signed by Swinnerton in ink lower right

      Ferdinand Enke Erlangen: Ferdinand Enke, 1871. The Beginning of Modern Surgery on the KidneySimon, Gustav (1824-76). Chirurgie der Nieren. 2 vols. in 1, 8vo. viii, 89 [1]; x, 314 [2]pp. 9 lithographed plates (incl. 3 chromolithographs); wood-engraved text illustrations. Erlangen: Enke, 1871 (Vol. I); Stuttgart: Enke, 1876 (Vol. II). 234 x 152 mm. Modern half morocco, marbled boards, original printed wrappers bound in. Light foxing but fine. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 4214. The era of modern urological surgery began in 1869, when Gustav Simon performed the first carefully planned nephrectomy; his patient was a woman suffering from ureterovaginal fistula caused by a botched ovariotomy. After writing a brief (two-page) notice of the operation in 1870 (see G-M 4213), Simon prepared a detailed illustrated account which he published as Volume I of his Chirurgie der Nieren. This volume contains two lithographed plates, the first a schematic drawing of the patient's injury, and the second an unusually artistic rendition (probably from a photograph) of the postoperative patient standing in front of a mirror displaying her surgical scars. The second volume of Chirurgie der Nieren, issued five years after the first, deals with the subject of kidney surgery in general, discussing operations on both injured and diseased kidneys. This volume, over three times as long as its predecessor, contains seven plates (three in color), showing a gunshot injury to the kidney, renal calculus and hypertrophy, and pre- and post-operative pictures of a case of hydronephrosis successfully cured by surgery. Kiefer 520. Murphy, History of Urology, pp. 251-54.
