        Patent of nobility donated by Emperor Franz Joseph I (1830-1916) to Wasa Ritter von Stoikovics (Kubin, Hungary 1808-?) for his loyal services at the siege of Ofen (Budapest) in 1849.

      - Holy Roman Empire, Vienna d.d. 8 March 1871. Full purple velvet, front cover decorated with gold embossed imperial coat-of-arms. Good condition. 37x28 cm. Silk endpapers, 8 pages on vellum. Printed decorative margins, text handwritten, with a hand painted coat-of-arms in colour and the original signature of Franz Joseph I. The imperial wax seal is attached by the gold cloth rope of the binding, in a disc shaped wooden case. The seal is cracked. This patent of nobility confirms the handwritten letter of 10 June 1850, which conferred the status of Knight (Ritter) to the recipient. Wasa Stoikovics served the Austrian Empire as soldier and became 'oberstleutenant. He deserved his nobility in the year 1849 at the defense of the Festung Ofen and was decorated with the Order of the Iron Crown third class, which also meant that he recieved the noble title of Ritter. 21 years after recieving this order, the nobility and his coat of arms are confirmed with this patent of nobility. The siege of Ofen took place from 4-21 May 1849. 5000 soldiers in Austrian service fought against 30.000 rebellious Hungarians who tried to take over the Festung during the War of Independence which followed the Hungarian revolution of 1848. The couragious but small army withstood the vigorous attacks for 17 days. Ofen is the German word for Buda, the western part of Budapest. Wasa Stoikovics is also mentioned to command the Theiszer Kron- und Gross-Kikindaer-Districts-Freiwilligen-Battalion in Italy in 1859. The order of the Iron Crown originally was a Napoleonic order, but was reestablished as an Austrian Order of the same name after the fall of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy in 1815. H191

        Atlas d'anatomie pathologique. Texte par M. Lancereaux. Atlas par le Dr. Lancereaux et M. Lackerbauer. (2 volumes).

      Paris, Victor Masson et Fils, 1871 - Paris, Victor Masson et Fils, 1871; 2 volumes in-4 : 1 vol. de texte in-4 (265 x 183 mm), XI, 552 pp., 51 figures dans le texte et 1 atlas in-4 (268 x 190 mm), (4) pp., 60 planches accompagnées chacune d'un feuillet explicatif, (3) ff ; (table) ; demi-chagrin à coins rouge de l'époque, dos à nerfs, tête dorée, quelques traces de frottement, une coiffe supérieure endommagée, quelques rousseurs, très bon état. Seule édition, assez rare. Le but des auteurs était de proposer un atlas d'anatomie pathologique plus pratique et moins onéreux que ceux de Cruveilhier et de Lebert. Le but de Lancereaux était aussi de fournir une étude actualisée et, bien que concise, la plus complète possible, avec l'aspect macroscopique et histologique des lésions, la corrélation anatomo-clinique, des notions étiologiques et pathogéniques, et le diagnostic différentiel. Le volume de texte comporte l'étude des principales lésions, classées par appareil et par organe. Lancereaux expose les observations anatomo-cliniques correspondant aux lésions illustrées sur les planches de l'atlas. Cet atlas comporte 60 planches lithographiées en couleurs par Lackerbauer, avec plusieurs figures par planches, illustrant fidèlement les lésions macroscopiques et histologiques. Cet ouvrage fut très bien accueilli ; il fit l'objet de longues et élogieuses analyses dans les principales revues médicales françaises, et il fut traduit en anglais en 1880. Il fut couronné à la fois par l'Institut (Prix Monthyon, 1872) et par la Faculté de médecine (Prix Châteauvillard, 1874). Certaines observations sont novatrices ou ont été remarquées (cf. références ci-dessous). Etienne Lancereaux (1829-1910) devint médecin des hôpitaux et professeur agrégé de médecine à la Faculté de médecine de Paris. Il fut membre de l'Académie de médecine (président en 1903). C'était un adepte de la méthode anatomo-clinique. Il n'obtint pas la chaire d'anatomie pathologique qu'il souhaitait et qui fut attribuée à Charcot, infiniment moins expérimenté que lui en histopathologie. Charles Robin, titulaire de la chaire d'histologie, n'hésita pas à affirmer : "Il n'y a que cette brute de Lancereaux qui sache l'anatomie pathologique, nous allons nommer Charcot qui n'y connait rien." Peter Lackerbauer (1823-1872) fut un illustrateur scientifique et médical très renommé. Il avait déjà dessiné les planches du traité danatomie pathologique de Lebert.

        O podchinenii zhenshchiny . perevod s angli?iskago pod redaktsieiu i s predisloviem G .E. Blagosvetlova. Izdanie vtoroe.

      - Saint Petersburg, A. Morigerobskii, 1871. 8vo. Contemporary Russian half-morocco over marbled boards, spine lettered ingilt and with raised bands; pp. xix, 304; light wear to corners, brown-spotted in parts, a few underlinigns in crayon and pencil; contemporary Russian ownership inscription to front fly-leaf and title. Second edition in Russian, a new translation of Mill's seminal Subjection of Women, a text which gained added poignancy in the Russian autocracy with an established church. Mill's book had appeared first in Russian in 1869, a virtually unobtainable edition. Mill had a feminist contact in Russia, the leader of the women's liberation movement Mariia Vasilevna Trubnikova, who informed him that the progressive women pushed for an all-female university. He wrote to the group of women lead by Trubnikova that Russia would 'prove that a nation relatively recently civilized grasps the ideas of ameliorizatioj sooner than the older ones' (Stites, The Women's Liberation Movement in Russia, p. 73).

        Biography of Victoria C. Woodhull

      Published at the Office of The Golden Age, New York 1871 - First edition. 12mo. 35,(1)pp. Stitched gray printed wrappers. Soiling to the wrappers and tiny chips to the corners of the wrapper and first two leaves, very good or better. Woodhull was a leader of the American women's suffrage movement, and an espouser of women's rights, free love, and labor reforms. She and her sister were the first female Wall Street stockbrokers, and she was the first female candidate for President of the United States. Woodhull came to Tilton's aid in 1872 when she published in her own magazine, *Woodhull & Claflin's Weekly,* the scandalous allegations of the adulterous relationship that the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher (who had railed against Woodhull's free love philosophy) was having with Tilton's wife. This precipitated what was widely regarded as the sensational "trial of the century" when Beecher was charged with adultery. An important early biography compiled from notes gathered by Woodhull's third husband, the sanguineously named spiritualist Colonel Blood, published by the prominent abolitionist and reformer the year before Woodhull announced her candidacy for President. Uncommon. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Original red cloth, covers with multiple fillet borders in gilt and black, with a centrally-placed gilt vignette of an elephant, braced by the title, also in gilt, reprised on the lower cover, all edges gilt; pp. [2], vi, [2], 149, [2, advertisements], with 8 superb high-tone chromolithographed plates, printed by Vincent Brooks, Day and Son; binding a little marked in places and expertly rebacked, endpapers renewed; occasional foxing, mainly to text; bookplate Brendon Gooneratne (see below) inside front cover. First edition. 'With the exception of one or two who presented some of the symptoms of incipient asphyxia, induced by an overdose of soda-water and corned beef on the previous evening, all were ready for the muster-call as the sun rose and shot its first rays on the tall summit of Kirigalpota. The day's proceedings were initiated by the presentation of a handsome hunting-knife to the Prince, by the gentlemen of the Dick Oya Hunt, headied by Messrs. Fetherstonehaugh and Kelly. No sooner was this done than hte entire camp m oved forward towards the hunting-ground, the Prince and his party leading the way . ' (pp. 77-8). 'John Capper was born in England in 1814. He started his journalistic career early in life, helping to edit an English weekly called The Mining and Steam Navigation Gazette before he came out to Ceylon in 1837. He took up a position in the firm of Acland and Boyd, an agency house primarily involved in coffee. After a few years he became manager of the firm's cinnamon properties. Then in 1846 he was promoted as a junior partner in charge of the entire export business. Besides his regular job, Capper had edited the Ceylon Magazine, a periodical for Orientalists and antiquarians, between 1840 and 1842. Though short-lived, it demonstrated the need for such a forum - a need that was to be satisfied in 1845 when Capper and 33 others formed the Ceylon Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society. Capper was appointed as Treasurer and Librarian . The coffee crash of 1847 resulted in Acland and Boyd suspending business, and a year later Capper returned to England and contributed articles on Ceylon life to Charles Dickens' popular periodical, Household Words … Ten years after he left Ceylon, he returned to become the manager and editor of the Times of Ceylon, and also edited the short-lived Muniandi (The Ceylon Punch), which offered a more acute analysis of the weaknesses of colonial society than the Ceylon Magazine, which he had edited earlier. Muniandi was illustrated by J.L.K. Van Dort, who was probably the best-known painter and illustrator working in Ceylon at that time. "From 1850 up to his death in 1896," art historian Ismeth Raheem declares, "he recorded almost every event of importance with his deft, quick sketches." Van Dort was to make an important contribution to Capper's book on the royal visit' (The Sunday Times, 13th September 1998, on-line).

        The Descent of Man, and selection in relation to sex

      London: John Murray,, 1871. In two volumes. With illustrations. 2 volumes, octavo (185 x 124 mm). Early 19th-century red half calf by Zaehnsdorf, gilt titles to brown labels to spines, spines decorated in gilt in compartments, red cloth sides, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Numerous engravings in text. Binder's stamps to front free endpaper versos. Spines lightly faded, very minor rubbing to extremities, head of front joint of vol. II just starting; an excellent set. First edition, second issue (with the list of works on the verso of the title leaf of Vol. II). It was in this work that the word "evolution" appears for the first time, preceding its appearance in the sixth edition of The Origin of Species the following year. Darwin had hoped that one of his supporters might tackle the thorny question of human evolution, but was forced to face the logic of his own theory himself. Darwin deviated from his ostensible subject of mankind to describe sexual selection in the animal kingdom, enabling him to answer those who saw peacock tails as an expression of divine aesthetics. Darwin also set out a definite family tree for humans, tracing their affinity with the Old World monkeys, and laid out his views on the evolutionary origins of morality and religion. "The Descent, understood by Darwin as a sequel to the Origin, was written with a maturity and depth of learning that marked Darwin's status as an élite gentleman of science" (ODNB). This set is bound without the publisher's advertisements. From the library of W. A. Foyle (1885–1963), at Beeleigh Abbey, with his leather book label on the front pastedowns.

Ich brauche diesen Act in nächster Zeit zu einer Verhandlung in Cöln u habe die Abschrift die ich damals von Ihnen erhielt hier nicht zur Hand, meine Bitte geht also dahin Sie zu ersuchen mir eine beglaubigte Abschrift dieses notariellen Actes [ ] zu schicken [ ]". - Darauf folgt eine Antwortnotiz des Adressaten. - Die Schwester von Maximilian Graf von Hatzfeldt zu Trachenberg-Schönstein wurde zur Beendigung der Familienstreitigkeiten 1822 mit ihrem Vetter verheiratet. Um sich von dem gewalttätigen Ehemann zu befreien, betrieb sie seit 1846, nachdem die Brüder ihr Unterstützung versagten, selbst die Scheidung und wurde darin von dem ihr befreundeten Ferdinand Lassalle unterstützt, der diesen Prozess vor 36 Gerichten als einen politischen verstand. 1851 wurde Hatzfeldt geschieden. In ihrem Düsseldorfer Haus lebte und arbeitete Lassalle 1848-56; 1857 zog Hatzfeldt nach Berlin. Nach dem Tod Lassalles verstand sich Hatzfeldt als Bewahrerin seines Vermächtnisses, gab seine nachgelassenen Schriften heraus und versuchte, die Politik des Allgemeinen Deutschen Arbeitervereins mitzubestimmen.

        Journal of the Legislative Council of Prince Edward Island, Anno Tricesimo Quarto Victoriae Riginae, First Session of the Twenty Fourth General Assembly

      Charlottetown [PEI]: E. Reilly & Co., Herald Office, Prince Street. Very Good. 1871. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 359 pages; Tan library buckram, spine with full-length dark leather label lettered in gilt; marbled endpapers and text-block edges. With the engraved bookplate of the U. S. Department of State, paper library label mounted to the base of the spine, small oval State Department accession stamp on the verso of the title page, card pocket mounted to the rear paste-down endpaper; red ink Surplus-Duplicate stamp on the front free endpaper (certifying that this copy is properly de-accessioned from government ownership). This volume is clean and well preserved, with other library marks than those mentioned above -- (no perforations, stamps in the interior, etc.) There are a few pencil notes, and marks, but these are highly interesting and suggest that this copy had a particularly interesting role in the history of its time -- the final years during which Prince Edward Island was still resisting pressure to join the new Dominion of Canada. The residents of Prince Edward Island may have been isolated by maritime geography, but they were united in taking pride in their Island and its legislative independence from 1851 onward. Even so, with the Charlottetown Conference of 1864, PEI had been the site of the first meeting which eventually led to the eventual adoption of the Articles of Confederation and the creation of the Dominion of Canada in 1867, making the Island in some respects the birthplace of the idea of Canada. Despite this founding status, Prince Edward Islanders did not find the terms of union with Canada favorable in 1867, and its legislature choose to remain a part of Great Britain and Ireland at that time. The reasons were mostly economic. PEI was wholly dependent on agriculture and fisheries, with products exported mostly to the United States of America and Europe and the UK. Canada had a similar profile, mostly devoted to agriculture, and with ample fisheries of its own. Locals feared that entering the newly-created Canada's complex structure of tariffs and regulations would force islanders to purchase all the goods they needed from Canada, send their taxes to that Dominion's government. But, on the other hand, the economic realities of their size and relative isolation, along with the Dominion's regulatory structure, would offer them almost nothing in return. PEI was relatively densely populated; the island, virtually without minerals, had to support a population of about 90,000. The unique complications of the ownership of the limited amount of land was also a factor. Under the historic land grants from the Crown, nearly the whole Island was owned by absentee proprietors who had no willingness to sell land to their tenants, the actual residents of the Island. The new Canadian Dominion government certainly wanted to add PEI to its Dominion. And for various reasons, the British Crown also wanted PEI in the Dominion, if only to uncomplicate their obligations with regard to the defence of their North American territory. The Dominion government sweetened the terms of union to PEI in 1869, but the local legislators still resisted becoming Canadians. A new interested party inserted itself in the discussion in the form of a delegation sent to PEI in 1868 from the Congress of the United States seeking to reistablish trade reciprocity. The heart of the matter was the crucial issue of fisheries. Briefly, after the initial creation of the Dominion of Canada, regulations and tariffs in the ports of Nova Scotia and Halifax had the effect of sending most United States fishing vessels working the waters of the northeast to PEI and Charlottetown, in order to buy and sell their catch, secure provisions (especially fresh water, salt and provisions for the crew) as well as necessary repairs. This vast increase in trade was making various PEI residents rich, and their Canadian neighbors resented this, to say the least. The British Crown issued regulations which closed this advantage to PEI, and this, understandably, proved hightly unpopular. The matter was finally setttled in the year of publication of this volume with the "Treaty of Washington" -- between the United States, the British Crown, and the new Government of the Dominion of Canada. [It should be noted that this highly important Treaty settled many matters as well as the fishing rights of the region]. This fine copy of the 1871 Journal of the PEI Legislative Council is a splendid remnant of a (relatively) independent Prince Edward Island. As it happens, this copy is of special interest, as it was the copy of record in the Library of the U.S. State Department (as of May, 1893 according to the accession stamp on the verso of the title page. But this copy may be more interesting, yet. There is a pencil note on the title page which suggests that this copy have been used by the U.S. side in the negotiations over the fisheries matter. There is a pencil reference at the head of the title page: -- "See pp. 18-232 E.H." Indeed, these pages referred to form "Apendix No. 1" -- entirely devoted to the issue of fishing rights and port access. There are pencil notes in this section, executed in handwriting matching the note on the title page. These appear in the first section of the Appendix, devoted to the report on the fisheries matter prepared by Edward Palmer, Q.C. (There is also a pencil note recording that Palmer was later Chief Justice of the Island, and died in November, 1889). The initials and the nature of the notes and passages marked with vertical lines in the margins suggest that this copy may have been used by Ebenezer Rockwood Hoar [1816-1895] -- who had been President Ulysses Grant's Attourney General. Indeed, E. R. Hoar was the first Attorney General to head the newly created U. S. Department of Justice in July, 1870. Grant nominated Hoar to be an Associate Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court, but the Senate failed to confirm him (under circustances which do little credit to his political foes). Hoar's main achievement may well have been, with Secretary of State Hamilton Fish, to have served as one of the main United States members of a joint high commission with the United Kingdom to settle Civil War claims, and also territorial claims in relation to the Dominion of Canada. The commission's work led to the signing of the Treaty of Washington in 1871. This significant and successful Treaty led to what is referred to as "The Great Rapprochement" or convergence of interests between Britain and the United States, and made war between the U.S. and Britain, or Canada, extremely unlikely for the foreseeable future. The possibility that this copy of the PEI Legislative Council of 1871 might have played a role in working towards this Treaty is remarkable, and the matter certainly deserves further study. The volume itself also contains much of interest relating to PEI history, including the matter which eventually forced the locals to grudgingly agree to join in the Dominion of Canada -- the trans-Island Railway. The fateful Railroad Bill can be followed in these pages from its first reading to final passage by the Assembly -- (pp. 101-120). As it devolved, the expenses of the Railway ran so far above estimates that the liabilities threatened the whole economy of the Island. The Railway crisis was only solved when PEI became the smallest of the Provinces of Canada, on July 1, 1873. Right up until just weeks from that famous date, there were informal discussions and offers made to PEI to join the United States of America, instead. .

        AT THE BACK OF THE NORTH WIND. Author of "Dealings with the Fairies," "Ranald Bannerman," Etc., Etc.

      Small octavo, original purple decorated cloth stamped in black, gilt, and blind, all edges gilt, pinkish cream endpapers. pp viii, 378, [2]. 76 illustrations in text by Arthur Hughes. Professionally resewn and rebacked, original endpapers intact, all spine stamping completely intact; inner hinges skillfully repaired, scarcely noticable; light spine sunning; Xmas, 1871, ink gift inscription on front free endpaper; English trade binder's ticket (Burn & Co.) on rear pastedown; only minor rubbing to the gilt picture on the front cover; else a fine bright copy, with much less fading to the spine than is usual with this colour, the rebacking skillfully done and scarcely noticable, and the text quite clean and unworn. The US edition was made from a separate British printing, by Ogden & Co. In the first issue of the UK binding, with the "A.S." spine imprint, gilt framing on the front cover, and the publisher's device within rules in blind on rear cover. Sadleir 1474c errs in his identification of the US first edition [It's not often you get to say "Sadleir was wrong"]. Not in Wolff (who was a serious MacDonald collector). The author's most famous book, a cornerstone in any fairy tale collection, and a high spot of Victorian children's literature, with excellent illustrations by MacDonald's good friend the famous Pre-Raphaelite Arthur Hughes. Their collaborations are "the despair of the collector, for they are exceedingly scarce and collectors of George MacDonald are exceedingly keen. The North Wind is at once Hughes' most delightful undertaking and one of the most charming books of the period." - Percy Muir. The British edition is now rare in original cloth, and the US edition is even scarcer. An nice copy of a great book. Binding: Hardcover .

        2 eigenh. Briefe m. U.

      [Wohl Wien], 13. IV. und 20. VI. 1871. - Zusammen 2 SS. 8vo. Beide Briefe an einen Herrn Wimmer: "Nachdem ich gestern mit dem Herrn Pfarrer gesprochen habe, wäre es uns sehr erwünscht mit Ihnen Samstag Vormittag sprechen zu können, es wäre daher gut wenn Sie bis ½ 9 Uhr zu mir kommen könnten, um das Material was ich besitze ein wenig durchzusprechen, denn das Gedenkbuch der Pfarre ist ein wenig weitläufig angelegt [ ]" (Brief vom 14. April 1871). "Der Herr Pfarrer hat mir heute den beiliegenden Zettel von der Kinderbewar Anstalt [ ] überschickt [ ]" (Brief vom 20. Juni 1871). - Beide Briefe etwas gebräunt und knittrig. - Haydinger musste im Alter von 12 Jahren die Schule verlassen und in der Gastwirtschaft seines Vaters mithelfen, die er 1822 übernahm. Die Lektüre historischer Werke regte ihn zur Anlage der ersten umfangreichen Viennensia-Sammlung an. Im Lauf der Zeit erwarb er ein derartiges Fachwissen auf bibliographischem Gebiet, dass ihn Experten des In- und Auslands konsultierten. Seine mehr als 12.000 Nummern umfassende Sammlung erstreckte sich auch auf Geschichte, Theatergeschichte, Kostümkunde, deutsche Literatur (vor allem Erstausgaben), Geschichte der Reformation und Gegenreformation bis zu den Hexenprozessen. Zur Erweiterung seiner Sammlung besuchte er Auktionen in ganz Europa, um seltene Stücke zu erwerben. Haydinger besaß die bedeutendste private Viennensia-Bibliothek in Wien. Nach seinem Tod wurde der Viennensia-, Josephinica- und Theatralia-Teil seiner Sammlung (5.253 Nummern.) - da die gesamte Sammlung wegen ihres hohen Werts (36.000 Gulden) von der Stadt Wien nicht angekauft werden konnte - von der Wiener Stadtbibliothek um 8.000 Gulden erworben, der Rest versteigert.
