        A beautiful framed two sided broadside of the Cunard Line from 1871, as a printed advertisement for transatlantic Steamship passage from Liverpool and Queenstown to International ports around the world

      Liverpool/Queenstown, UK, January 6, 1871. 10.5" x 17.25". "Two sided Broadside with soft folds, very slight separation and rubbing along center fold. Pale water stain along right corner outside of margin, else near fine. 10.5"" x 17.25"" Presented in a lightly nicked wood frame, double matted and framed to a size of 18"" x 24.5"", with glass backing to see both sides of the advertisement. The verso contains a partial map of North America.Broadside advertisement includes the dates of the voyages departure and pricing with ""Children under 8 years, Half-fare; Infants under 12 Months, £1 1s"" Along with relevant points that the passengers will each be granted a separate berth to sleep in providing they are over the age of 12, Married couples are berthed together""...""but (they) will have to provide themselves with a plate, Mug, Knife, Spoon and Water-can, as also Bedding ..."" Along with highly descriptive details of the voyage 'food fare' including:""Breakfast at Eight O'Clock - Coffee, Sugar, and Fresh Bread or Biscuit and Butter, or Oatmeal Porridge and MolassesDinner at One O'Clock - Beef or Pork and Soup, With Bread and Potato, or Fish and Potatoes, according to the day of the week, and on Sunday pudding will be addedSupper at Six O'Clock - Tea, Sugar and Biscuit""Perhaps of most interest however, is the long exhausting list of all individuals who are not in accordance with what was considered appropriate or allowable for the voyage: ""All passengers are liable to be rejected by the Captain of the ship, who, upon examination, are found to be lunatic, idiot, deaf, dumb, blind, maimed or infirm, or having symptoms of infectious disease, or above the age of 60 years, or widow with a child or children, or any woman without a husband, and with a child or children, ..."" which by all accounts of today's standards would likely include a large part of the population."

      Blanquart-Évrard, [Louis Désiré]. LES COULEURS EN PHOTOGRAPHIE: CAUSERIE. Offprint from: Memoires de la Société des Sciences, de L'Agriculture et des Arts de Lille. 3rd series, volume 9. [Lille: L. Danel, 1871]. First edition. 8vo., 12 pp., with 4 photographic plates. Bound in contemporary yellow paper wrappers with the author and title in manuscript on the front cover. Wrappers are dusty with a short closed tear and lacking the lower front tip. The text is unopened, with the plates in very good condition. This pamphlet is an offprint from the above mentioned journal, the final contribution from Blanquart-Évrard, the president of the society. The text is a brief discussion of the theory and development of color photography, achieved by using three layers of emulsion, each absorbing one of the three primary colors, with each containing a dye that passed its color complement. This was the basis of every modern color process, and is commonly called the "subtractive" process. Both Louis Ducos du Hauron and Charles Cros announced their similar process on May 7, 1869 at a meeting of the Société Française de Photographie, neither aware of the other's experiments. Included, following the text are three photographic plates from color separation negatives of flower leaves provided by Louis Ducos du Hauron: red, blue and yellow, and printed on thin sheets of bichromated gelatin, incorporating carbon pigments. The fourth, and final plate is printed combining the three individual separations to make a full color photograph. In Eder, p.646, he states," Blanquart-Évrard, of Lille, wanted to exploit Du Hauron's process and establish, in 1870, a three-color printing establishment. Du Hauron had already furnished a set of three-color negatives for this purpose, but alas, the Franco-German war forced the postponement of the project until 1871. Unfortunately, Blanquart-Évrard died in April, 1872, but he had reported the process to the Society of Sciences at Lille." Although Cros and Ducos du Hauron exhibited examples of their three-color photographs as early as 1869, in neither of their publications prior to Blanquart-Evrard's, is there an example. This is the first publication to include an original color photograph from life, with WorldCat locating copies only at the George Eastman House, Getty Research Institute, Bibliotheque National de France, and BM Lyon, none of which are identified as an offprint. Roosen and Salu 928. [with] Cros, Charles. SOLUTION GÉNÉRALE DU PROBLÈM DE LA PHOTOGRAPHIE DES COULEURS. Paris: Gauthiers-Villars et au Bureau du Journal Les Mondes, 1869. First edition. 8vo., 12 pp., printed wrappers. There is a short separation of the wrappers at the spine. A near fine copy. Housed in a pamphlet folder of paper over boards with printed labels. Charles Cros (1842 - 1888) and Louis Ducos du Hauron, simultaneously but independently discovered and published the basic principles of photographic color by the subtractive method. In 1869, Cros published an article in Les Mondes in which he describes a letter he had deposited in 1867 with the Académie des Sciences that outlined his color process. The contents of his letter was made public on May 7, 1869 at a meeting of the Société Française de Photographie when a similar process by Louis Ducos du Hauron was also announced. Cros continued to explore photography in color and in 1877, he was supported in his experiments by the Duke of Chaulnes. Very few examples of his color photographs survive. This pamphlet is a cornerstone work on the development of color photography. WorldCat locates 15 copies in U.S. libraries, making this the more common of these four works. Roosens & Salu No. 2647. [with] Ducos du Hauron, Louis. LES COULEURS EN PHOTOGRAPHIE ET EN PARTICULAR L'HÉLIOCHROMIE AU CHARBON. Traité contenant, dans leur état le plus récent, les formules et la mise en pratique du système de photographie des couleurs publié par l'auteur au mois de mars 1869. Paris: A. Marion, Janvier 1870. First edition. 8vo., 82, (1) pp. Printed wrappers. Moderate chipping to the paper spine. Near fine. Housed in a cloth pamphlet case with a calf label in gilt, inset into the front cover. Louis Ducos du Hauron and Charles Cros, simultaneously, but independently, discovered the basic principles of photographic color by the subtractive method. Ducos du Hauron published his process in 1869, and further elaborated upon it as applied to tricolor carbon printing in this publication of 1870; additionally, he refutes Cros' claim to priority. Rare, with WorldCat locating only three copies: Getty Research Institute, Smithsonian Institution, and John Hopkins University. Roosens and Salu No. 3347. [with] Ducos du Hauron, Louis. UNE QUESTION DE PRIORITÉ AU SUJET DE LA POLYCHROMIE PHOTOGRAPHIQUE DE M. LÉON VIDAL. LETTRE A LA SOCIÉTÉ FRANÇAISE DE PHOTOGRAPHIE. Agen: Imprimerie de P. Nobel - F. Lamy, successeur, 1876. First edition. 8vo., 12 pp. Printed paper wrappers, which are partially separated at the spine; with a small stain on the rear wrapper. Very good. Housed in a cloth pamphlet folder with paper labels. This is the controversial letter sent by Louis Ducos du Hauron to the Société Française de Photographie establishing his claim to historical priorities in early color systems. In Potonnieé's paper on Ducos du Hauron, which includes an extensive bibliography of printed works, this pamphlet was not included. WorldCat locates only three copies: National Gallery of Canada, Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Yale University, Roosens and Salu No. 3352. Four items. $35,000.00.

        Two Lincoln Union Ladies' Tickets to the Lincoln Union Ball:] January 5th, 1870 [and] January 26th, 1871

      (New York) 1871 - Two printed tickets each with a mounted albumen photograph in cabinet card format (4.25 x 6.25 inches). The back side of each ticket has a faint printed design on white glazed paper. Both tickets are neatly trimmed along the right edge, near fine with a few tiny perimeter tears and light toning. The first ticket from 1870 has a mounted albumen photograph of a painting by A.H. Ritchie, of Lincoln with his cabinet reading the Emancipation Proclamation. The second ticket from 1871 has a mounted albumen photograph of a statue of Lincoln reading a newspaper with Grant and whom we believe is Gideon Wells. The Lincoln Union Social Club, a pro-Republican party function, held its first ball in New York City in 1870. These two ephemeral items, tickets for the first and second balls, are not to be confused with the invitations that preceded them. Of the two, the tickets may be a rarer survival. We know of only one other copy of the 1870 ticket at the Library of Congress.

        Bancroft's Tourist's Guide, Yosemite, San Francisco and Around the Bay, (South)

      A.L. Bancroft & Company, San Francisco 1871 - 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall. 314 p. Published just two years after the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad, which enabled easier and faster travel westward, this pocket travel guide to Yosemite was published "for the ordinary use of the average tourist". In the Preface (dated June, 1871) they point out the merits to this more concise, economical version and go on to state "In a new and fast-growing State, like ours, where railroad companies sometimes lay nearly a league of track a day, it is simply impossible that any publication should remain perfectly accurate in every particular, even for twenty-four hours after its first issue" and offer their thanks in advance to "any traveler, railroad, stage or saddle-train agent, or hotel manager" who submits later information or corrections. Per Currey, pages [7]-71 comprise a guide to Yosemite Valley and the Calaveras, Mariposa, and "southern" giant sequoia groves; it also describes northern routes to the valley with rates for hotels, livery, and guides. The book was reissued in 1872, this is the first 1871 edition. ***DESCRIPTION: Original green cloth with a blind-stamped ruled border on both boards, gilt lettering on the front and spine, 16 mo size (approximately 6.25" tall), pagination: (1)-256, (i)-lviii (publisher's ads), with an additional ad being pasted onto the rear pastedown ("Joseph Gillott's Steel Pens of the Old Standard Quality"). ***CONDITION: Overall in very good condition, with a strong, square text block and solid hinges, the entire volume is free of prior owner markings, it is in the original binding and with all 58 pages of ads in the rear as called for by the bibliographies; a professional restorer has strengthened the binding by inserting new boards and putting the original cloth binding over them, so the binding is now strong and sturdy (name of restorer available upon request); the binding does show the original damp-stains. Note that internally the volume has old damp-staining to the flyleaves and title page, minor damp-staining to the next several pages, with a similar pattern at the rear, with the majority of the text pages being clean and bright. ***CITATION: Cowan pg. 33, Currey 5. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the Abe standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex. 2 volumes.

      London: John Murray, 1871. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (189 x 129 mm). viii, 423 [1], 16; viii, [2], 475 [1], 16 pp., including half-titles, publisher's catalogue dated January 1871 at end of each volume, and several woodcut illustrations in text. Untrimmed and partially unopened. Original publishers green cloth (cloth little rubbed, spotted and soiled, corners bumped and frayed, slight wear to extremities), inner hinges cracked but holding. Internally very little age-toned, little foxing to endpapers, half-titles and adverts at end (else virtually unfoxed), short tear in blank fore-margin of vol. I, p.21/22. Provenance: Charles Robertson (inscribed on half-title and first flyleaf of vol. I). Still very good, unsophisticated set. ----Freeman 245, Norman 599, Sparrow 48; Garrison-M. 170 - First edition, first issue of both volumes (with the errata on verso of title-leaf in vol. II and with the first word of p.297 "transmitted" in vol. I). Twelve years after the publication of the Origin, Darwin made good his promise to "throw light on the origin of man and his history" by publishing the present work, in which he compared man's physical and psychological traits to similar ones in apes and other animals, and showed how even man's mind and moral sense could have evolved through processes of natural selection. In discussing man's ancestry, Darwin did not claim that man was directly descended from apes as we know them today, but stated simply that the extinct ancestors of Homo sapiens would have to be classed among the primates. This statement was (and is) widely misinterpreted by the popular press, however, and caused a furor second only to that raised by the Origin. Darwin also added an essay on sexual selection, i.e. the preferential chances of mating that some individuals of one sex have over their rivals because of special characteristics, leading to the accentuation and transmission of those characteristics (Norman). 2500 copies of the first issue were published on February 24. The second issue was published the following month. Very Good.

        Kidnapping in the South Seas Being a Narrative of a Three Month’s Cruise of H M Ship Rosario

      Edinburgh: Edmonston and Douglas, 1871. xi, (1) 233, (2 adverts) pp. b/w photogravure and colored lithograph plates. First edition. Insider’s account of “blackbirding” - the practice of kidnapping native labor from South Pacific islands. The author cuts to the chase: “Of late English traders find ‘black-birding’ far more lucrative than beche-de-mering.” He includes first person and trial testimony. Not much hard fact has been written about this notorious practice, so Palmer’s book is an important and rare source. Ferguson 13727. The color lithos are done from the author’s own drawings. A very good copy bound in original marooon cloth with black rules and gold spine lettering.

        THE HOUSEHOLD EDITION OF THE WORKS [in 101 monthly serial parts in wrappers]

      1871. [101 parts in original wrappers] London: Chapman and Hall, July 1871 - January 1880. Together, 101 issues (in 101 consecutive months, except that publication lapsed for two months in February-March 1878, between Nos. 79 and 80). Original blue printed wrappers. The first appearance -- COMPLETE -- of the first collected edition of Dickens's works to be published after his death (beginning just 13 months after his death). Each novel runs through three to six monthly parts (often with one novel ending and another beginning within a single part); at the end of each novel are the preliminary leaves, with which a subscriber could have each novel bound up -- into a total of 22 volumes (including Forster's Life of Dickens at the end).~The name Household Edition "refers to the fact that this was literally an edition 'for the home', and was meant as kind of a 'library edition' for ordinary readers and the less affluent, who would be able, through careful budgeting, to purchase the entire run of twenty-two volumes over a protracted period."~For the Household Edition, Chapman and Hall commissioned new illustrations throughout, by in all eleven artists: "The series... was amply illustrated in a manner that the original Chapman and Hall monthly parts could not have been, with large-scale woodcut illustrations dropped right into the letterpress." [quotes from Allingham et al.]. If our math is correct, there is a total of 877 illustrations, of which 65 are full-page plates (bear in mind that a few of Dickens's novels, such as GREAT EXPECTATIONS and HARD TIMES, had not even been illustrated as first editions.)~All 101 parts are in their original blue printed wrappers, with no wrappers missing. There are occasional ad slips and catalogues inserted, and there is no evidence that any was excised; the Household Edition was not like a serialized Dickens first edition, wherein advertisers clamored to have ads at the beginning and end of almost every part.~Condition is remarkable. Many of the parts are simply fine -- with several dozen parts having leaves still unopened. Some parts have only trifling wear at the spine ends, but only a handful has more than that (a very few with worn spines, one part with a wrapper corner chipped away). There is light foxing on some wrappers or early/late leaves, but nothing extensive. The text illustrations are remarkably bold, and the full-page plates are too (curiously withOUT much of any foxing, though a couple have a ragged fore-edge from extending beyond the leaves). In all -- one could not hope to find a more complete, better-condition set; to our knowledge this is only the second set to appear on the market over the past several decades. See Podeschi (Yale) D66 (the Gimbel Collection at Yale includes only two of the 101 UK parts, though it has a large (but incomplete) group of the American issues).

        Document Signed [Ship's Papers]

      1871. Signed. GRANT, Ulysses S. Document Signed [Ship's Papers]. New Bedford, MA: September 26, 1871. Broadside (22 by 17 inches), printed, engrossed and signed on the recto. $4500.ShipÂ’s papers granting permission to Charles S. Holt, commander of the ship ""Hunter,"" to depart from the port of New Bedford “laden with Provisions, and stores for a whaling voyage” to the Pacific Ocean. President Grant and Secretary of State Hamilton Fish have both boldly signed this document. With the fragile affixed paper seal of the United States present.Because ships leaving U.S. ports needed ship identification papers before a voyage, documents such as this one were signed by the President and Secretary of State ahead of time and forwarded to the port. The Collector of the Port would then fill in the required information and the date. This document was signed in Washington, DC prior to the September 26, 1871 departure date, but was issued from New Bedford on that date. Document printed in four columns on the recto of this folio leaf, completed in manuscript, with text in English, French, Spanish and Dutch. It contains oaths that the named ship is owned by United States citizens, and bears the official paper seal of the United States, and is also countersigned by James Allen, Collector of Customs for the port of New Bedford, and notarized by James Taylor. Some minor expert paper repairs and restorations, chiefly to the verso, and not affecting any signatures. Grant's and Fish's signatures clear and bold. An excellent and scarce signed document.
