        The Descent of Man, and selection in relation to sex.

      New York: D. Appleton & Company, 1871 - 2 vols, octavo. Original red diagonal grain cloth, titles to spines gilt, rules and cornerpieces in black to covers, yellow coated endpapers. Minor wear to spine ends and tips, a couple of light marks to covers, short split to head of front hinge of vol. I. An excellent set. First US edition, first issue (with the errata on the verso of the title leaf of vol. II). First published in the UK the preceding year, 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). Freeman 941.

A little rubbed, lower fore-corner showing mild signs of damp, hinges starting, half-title browned, else very good. Mounted photographic portrait frontispiece. First edition. The author held a position equivalent to chancellor of the exchequer at the court of the young Nawab of Tonk, a small Muslim kingdom in Rajasthan, hedged on all sides by Hindu-ruled states. After the death of the Thakoor of Lawa, the largest tributary of Tonk, and a number of his retainers at the home of the prime minister of Tonk, the local political agent Lieutenant-Colonel Eden supported Lawa's claims in the incident and deposed the Nawab. Hassan was a key member in a deputation that set out for London to appeal against the local agent's findings. He gives a highly-detailed account of the voyage from Bombay to Jedda via Aden and Hodyda, and of the journey on camel-back to Mecca, where they complete the hajj, and on to Medina to see the Prophet's tomb. The party then returned to Jedda, from where Hassan set out for London via Suez and Marseilles. Hassan's appeal was unsuccessful, and the Nawab's son continued in his stead. Not in Macro.

        The Desert of the Exodus: Journeys on Foot in the Wilderness of the Forty Years' Wanderings, undertaken in Connexion with the Ordnance Survey of Sinai and the Palestine Exploration Fund.

      Cambridge: Deighton, Bell and Co., 1871 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original green pebble-grain cloth, title gilt to spines, panels in blind to boards, cream endpapers. From the library of British Arabist and colonial agent Col. S. B.

Coloured lithographic frontispiece to vol. 1, tinted lithographic frontispiece to vol. 2, 12 other tinted lithographic plates, 2 plain line plates, 5 folding maps, 3 of them coloured. First edition of "this important work" (Blackmer). In 1869 Palmer "was chosen to join the survey of Sinai, for the Palestine Exploration Fund. His principal duty was to collect from the Bedouin the correct names of places on the Sinai peninsula. He thus came for the first time into contact with Arabs, learned to speak their dialects, and obtained an insight into their modes of thought and life. In the summer of 1869 he returned to England, but left again on 16 December for another expedition. This time he and Charles Frederick Tyrwhitt-Drake walked alone the 600 miles from Sinai to Jerusalem, identifying sites and searching vainly for inscriptions. They explored for the first time the Desert of the Wanderings (Tih) and many unknown parts of Edom and Moab, and accomplished much useful geographical work. En route Palmer made many friends among the Arab sheikhs, among whom he went by the name of 'Abdallah Efendi. The travellers went on to Lebanon and to Damascus, where they met Captain Richard Burton, who was then consul there, and with whom Palmer struck up a friendship. They returned home in the autumn of 1870 by way of Constantinople and Vienna. A popular account of these two expeditions was written by Palmer in The Desert of the Exodus" (ODNB).

This treatise, published in 1871, is scarce, with only two copies found in OCLC, both in the UK. This copy, appropriately enough, was deaccessioned by the U. S. Treasury Department.

        Twenty Broadsheet Ballads

      These are original broadsheet ballads, crudely printed on cheap paper, measuring about 4 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches. Some of them have the slug of P. Brereton, Printer, on Exchange St. in Dublin. Listings on OCLC suggest he worked in the 1860s - 1880s. Interestingly, one of the ballads is \"Lines Written on the Most Dreadful Fire that Broke Out in Chicago in America. Composed by Jeramiah Cronan.\" So that piece, at least, was published after 1871. The ballads are tipped onto heavy folio sheets and attractively bound in quarter calf over boards. Many have wood engraved headpieces.

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.

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.

        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.
