        Democratic Vistas

      Washington, D.C.: [Printed for J.S. Redfield, New York], 1871 Original green wrappers. A near fine copy. FIRST EDITION. One of about 500 copies. In these essays on democracy and individualism, Whitman provides both an outline for an American cultural order and a statement of his own literary ideals. He discusses the impact of westward expansion on the American character while condemned the corruption and greed of the Gilded Age. He writes: "Never was there, perhaps, more hollowness at heart than at present, and here in the United States. Genuine belief seems to have left us." His solution to the moral crisis is literature: "Two or three really original American poets...would give more compaction and more moral identity, (the quality to-day most needed) to these States, than all its Constitutions, legislative and judicial ties," he declared, believing that literature would unite the country. "Never was anything more wanted than, to-day, and here in The States, the Poet of the Modern is wanted, or the great Literatus of the Modern.".

        The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex

      London: John Murray, 1871 Two volumes. Original green cloth. Minimal repair to head of spine. A near fine set. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, with the uncorrected text in Vol. I and with the list of errata on the verso of the title-page in Vol. II. Freeman observes that "there are important textual differences" between the two issues of the first edition. One of these, later rectified with the removal of long passages from the second issue, is pointed out in the first issue's inserted slip referring to "a serious an unfortunate error, in relation to the sexual differences of animals." This is the work in which Darwin applied his theory of evolution by means of natural selection to man, a subject he had avoided for the decade following the publication of On the Origin of Species. The word "evolution" appears here for the first time in any of Darwin's works (it was incorporated the following year in the sixth edition of the Origin). Darwin observed that man's extinct ancestors would have to be classified among the primates, a statement that was misinterpreted in the popular press and caused a furor surpassed only by that of the Origin. Darwin wrote, "The time will before long come when it will be thought wonderful, that naturalists, who were well acquainted with the comparative structure and development of man and other animals, should have believed that each was the work of a separate act of creation." Freeman 937.

        The Coming Race

      Adam, Stevenson & Co., Toronto 1871 - A mysterious and fascinating science-fiction novel by one of the most profound and intriguing English writers of the nineteenth century. Captivating and thrilling, The Coming Race tells of a superior subterranean race and an energy-form called "Vril", which to some extent has been deemed prophetic by some, most notably Helena Blavatsky and Rudolf Steiner. Written in Bulwer-Lytton's elegant, deeply refined style. Volume shows some pronounced aging on covers from fading and staining. Purple cloth covers feature black line decoration on both boards and title in gilt on front. Boards exhibit some scattered damp/grease stains with mild edge fading and rubbing. Corners are lightly rubbed. Spine has gilt text and blind-tooled gilt decoration, and is strongly sunned and faded with softening at ends. Binding is overall tight with some gaps at gutter between certain pages and some cracking at front hinge. (See photos) Yellow endpapers display pencil notes and are minimally worn. Interior is gently age-toned with some scattered foxing, unevenly pronounced. Inside pages are free of writing and intentional marks. Some pages display corner creases and tears along fore edge. (See photos) Text block edges show mild to moderate toning and foxing, with some darkening and dust, and a white stain, along foot. (See photos) Book may exhibit additional minor signs of age or wear. Reprinted from the American edition. One page of publisher ad at end of volume. 207 pages. 5 x 7.25 inches. Postage for oversized and international shipping will be calculated by size and weight. AbeBooks shipping quotes are ESTIMATES only.

        1871 Troy "Haymakers" BaseBall Club Document from the First Year of the National Association (the First Professional Baseball League)

      Troy, NY, 1871. Manuscript. Very rare. One page, partially printed document on "Haymaker Base Ball Club" letterhead, aprox. 5x7". Dated at Troy, N.Y., Oct. 19, 1871 and completed in ink. Original document from the Haymaker Base Ball Club of Troy, New York informing a shareholder of a meeting to be held at "Calder's Office" , 8PM, Friday, October 20th (1871) with notation at bottom "Very important". Traditionally, ball club stockholder meetings would be held (as in this case) shortly after the end of the playing season for the purpose of dividing profits (or, in the not unusual case of a loss for the year, making assessments of members) and paying off the players. The Haymaker Club of Troy was one of the founding members of baseball's first professional league, The National Association, which functioned from 1871 through 1875. The NA was not a strong league, plagued by weak teams, loose discipline and contract-jumping players and was replaced by the still-extant National League in 1876. Troy entered the National League in 1879 and in 1883 transferred the franchise to New York City where it became known as the Giants. Among the notable players to perform for both the Haymakers and the Giants were four future Hall of Famers---Roger Connor, Mickey Welch, Tim Keefe and Buck Ewing. Light mailing folds but otherwise a fine, clean piece. Material from the National Association is exceedingly rare.

The French Socialist and anarchist Malon (1841-93) was a member of the French section of the First International, in which he sided with Proudhon and Bakunin, against the Marxists.

He joined the "Republican Central Committee" which united Proudhonists with followers of Auguste Blanqui. In 1871 he was elected to the National Assembly of the new Third Republic, but he resigned in protest against the peace treaty, which ceded Alsace-Lorraine to Prussia. After the suppression of the Commune he escaped to Lugano. Following an amnesty in 1880 he returned, and in 1885 founded the journal "Revue Socialiste". - Endpapers foxed, otherwise only slightly browned.

      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.

        Democratic Vistas

      Washington, D.C: [Printed for J. S. Redfield, New York] 1871 - Original green wrappers. A near fine copy. FIRST EDITION. One of about 500 copies. In these essays on democracy and individualism, Whitman provides both an outline for an American cultural order and a statement of his own literary ideals. He discusses the impact of westward expansion on the American character while condemned the corruption and greed of the Gilded Age. He writes: “Never was there, perhaps, more hollowness at heart than at present, and here in the United States. Genuine belief seems to have left us.” His solution to the moral crisis is literature: “Two or three really original American poets would give more compaction and more moral identity, (the quality to-day most needed) to these States, than all its Constitutions, legislative and judicial ties,” he declared, believing that literature would unite the country. “Never was anything more wanted than, to-day, and here in The States, the Poet of the Modern is wanted, or the great Literatus of the Modern.” [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Without the errata slip. viii, 198pp. Montreal: Pr. by John Lovell, Cowans travelled extensively throughout the globe, but in particular in Canada, India, South America and the Arabian Gulf. In his narrative he pays particular attention to life under sail and its perils: fire on board ship, man overboard, hurricanes etc.etc. There is also a highly coloured account of a race across the Atlanic won by 90 minutes. Of particular interest though is his account of a visit to the Sultan of Muscat (pp112-133). Cowans describes the harbour and town of Muscat in some detail, but he devotes most of his narrative to his audience with the Sultan, with whom he was most impressed. ? a man of about forty-five years of age, with a frank open countenance, and decidedly faire complexioned, he looks exceedingly well in his white flowing robes and magnificent turban? Not in Macro. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Coup d'œil sur les incendies de Constantinople

      Constantinople: de Castro,, 1871. Octavo (196 x 133 mm), lithographic title + 29 pp. Original pink paper wrappers, printed in black. Mild denting to wrappers and text, wrappers slightly faded, a few tiny spots to spot, minuscule manuscript correction (probably the author's) to p. 17. A very good copy. First and only edition, presentation copy of this extremely rare pamphlet written in response to the 1870 Pera fire (the "Harik-i kabir"), inscribed by the author "A Mr. le Profr. Marzolo, hommage" on the front wrapper. This must be Francesco Marzolo (1818–1880), who taught medicine at the University of Padua, rather than his more famous brother, Paolo, who also taught languages, including Arabic and Turkish, although Zennaro may have been taught by him too. The fire began on Feridiye Sokagi shortly after midday on 5 June and "took only six hours to destroy two thirds of the quarter, killing thousands and destroying countless buildings" (Boyar & Fleet, A Social History of Ottoman Istanbul, p. 78). In response the government proposed an extensive remodelling of the local area, though the plan was only partially implemented. Zennaro, an Italian physician evidently long-resident in the city, estimates that approximately 8,500 houses were destroyed (more recent accounts have suggested 3,000), with some 2,500 dead, and accuses certain parties of having a vested interest in maintaining inadequate fire safety, including merchants and architects. He also surveys the use of building materials, the layout of the city's streets, water provision, and emergency procedures, and recommends the safer storage of oil and gas, the use of stone instead of wood, the widening of streets, a reformed fire service, and a regulated professional body of municipal architects. A highly important document in the social history of the Ottoman capital, otherwise untraced in libraries and commerce.

Original purple cloth, back faded and repaired at the head and foot, in slipcase. xii, 458pp. Calcutta, Office of the Superintendant of Government Printing, A rare book writtten by the expedition's naturalist and medical officer.

Wyville Thomson to front paste-down endpaper.vii, 421 pp. London and New York, Macmillan and Co., Inscribed by the author on the first page to W. Thomson, who was his ?fellow traveller for many miles by sea and land?

Thomson is best remembered for his work as chief scientist on the Challenger Expedition (1872-76).

        Woman's Work. With Special Reference to Industrial Employment.

      London: Victoria Press,, 1871. A paper read by Emily Faithfull, at the meeting of the Society of Arts, March 29th, 1871. [Together with:] A clipped signature of Emily Faithfull. Octavo (210 x 137 mm), pp. 20. Disbound. Occasional pencil marks to margins highlighting passages of the text. Faint foxing to bottom edge; an excellent copy. First edition in pamphlet form. This paper was originally published in the Arts Journal on 31 March of the same year, alongside a summary of the discussion which followed Faithfull's reading. The paper was reprinted by Faithfull's Victoria Press with updated figures based on the census which occurred in April of that year. Faithfull (1835–1895) was a founding member of the Society for Promoting the Employment of Women, and opened the Victoria Press in 1860 with the aim of providing employment for women, specifically in the role of compositors. This pamphlet addresses the issue of female employment, specifically with regards to the larger number of women in the population than men. This disparity was a major concern due to the fact that these women, termed "superfluous women", would not be able to marry, and therefore would require employment to support themselves. This was one of the leading issues which prompted the founding of the Society for Promoting the Employment of Women in 1859. In this paper however Faithfull notes that, "a Society for Promoting the Employment of Women, however admirable, cannot really do what is wanted; a national effort, in the fullest sense of the word, will alone enable us to cope". Faithfull's discussion of industrial employment focusses on the idea that women were more than "mere machines". She argues that viewing them as "mere machines" prevented women from taking on more senior roles, thereby denying young women the guidance and protection of senior women in the workplace, creating poorer working conditions, an issue which was pertinent in working women's strikes later in the century. Faithfull and the Langham Place group were active in opposing restrictive employment laws, particularly the Factory Act of 1874, but wary that too many restrictions could have adverse effects on the wages and self-dependence of women workers. Although some recent historians have argued that Faithfull's rhetoric was more moral than her business practice, her output, and the output of the Victoria Press as a whole, nevertheless remains a key part of the discussion surrounding women's labour at this time, and a basis for understanding the labour debates which occurred later in the century. This copy is together with Emily Faithfull's clipped signature. Faithfull was a prolific letter writer, having extensive correspondence with various key figures at the time, including Barbara Bodichon, Richard Cobden, Bram Stoker, and Christina Rossetti. The majority of her correspondence however was destroyed by Faithfull after her involvement in the divorce case of Helen and Henry Codrington. Uncommon, with no copies traced in the UK; just two copies were traced on OCLC at the Library of Congress and the University of Illinois.
