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

      E. Reilly & Co., Herald Office, Prince Street, Charlottetown [PEI] 1871 - 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Havana, 1871. [2]pp. plus integral blank leaf. 8 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches. Binding holes in margin, offsetting. Very good. A manuscript receipt outlining the sale of several slaves between Brooks and Company and Marcelina Barthe. The document records the name, approximate age, and price of each slave, including a young woman and her daughter, Clara, age four. Most of the slaves are referred to as "mulata" or "criolla" indicating that they are of mixed blood. The contract ends with an agreement that the sellers are no longer liable for the slaves, indicating that any future issues or illnesses are now the responsibility of the new owner. It is signed by both parties, and bears what appears to be the official stamp of the Cuban notary public.

The reports produced included information on geography, geology and topography; paleontology and archaeology; ethnography, botany and zoology. Hayden was put in charge of what eventually became the United States Geological Survey at the outset of these expeditions, which has been called "the most ambitious scientific undertaking in the American West" (Lamar, 478). The 1871 Montana report is notable as the catalyst for the establishment of Yellowstone National Park in 1872 (Thrapp, 633).

        Les parcs et jardins crées et executés par F. Duvillers. La première partie.

      Paris, chez l’auteur 1871 - Les parcs et jardins crées et executés par F. Duvillers. La première partie. Paris, chez l’auteur, 1871. Folio. (8) + 80p. With 40 engraved plates. Publisher’s cloth-backed printed boards. An impressive record of forty private and public gardens laid out by the author, a Belgian architect and landscape designer. They date from 1838 to 1870, and are in the landscape or ‘paysagiste’ style prevalent in France in the mid-19th century. Formal elements continue to be evident in the lay out of ‘potagers’ and fruit gardens, and in the use of’avenues’ and canals. Extensive notes on planting are provided in the text. Among institutional schemes are those for the Ecole de botanique, Paris, the botanical institution of M. Poiloup at Vaugirard and an innovative garden with pavilions for a ‘Maison de santé des deux sexes’ in the rue de Picpus, Paris; public gardens and parks include the Jardin de l’Etoile intended for’bals, concerts, fêtes publiques, de jour et de nuit’ at Passy, the main square and public gardens in the town of Koutaïs in the Caucasus (modern Kutaisi in Georgia) and gardens with a promenade for the town of Montélimart. Among private patrons are Salomon de Rothschild (park at Suresnes) and Baron d’Herlincourt (Château de Belan-sur-Ource). Noticeable during this period is the more functional organisation of land layout. A second volume was published in 1878. Dedicated to Leopold II, king of the Belgians; some ten heads of state subscribed to its publication. A well preserved copy, the binding carefully restored. See Racine, Boursier-Mougenot & Binet, The Gardens of Provence and the French Riviera 1987, p305 (this volume only referred to). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      New York, New Era Publishing Company, 1871-74. 1st edition. Period style quarter-leather, 8vo, v, 539; v, 469; ii, 636 pages [1656 pages total]. Singerman S250. Jonathan Sarna, in "American Judaism, " notes that "A liberal Jewish periodical entitled the New Era, initiated in 1870 by Rabbi Raphael De Cordova Lewin, promised to 'advance mankind in true religious knowledge and to united all God's children in a common bond of brotherhood. ' By its third volume, it claimed the second largest circulation 'of any Jewish organ. ' (p. 124) . A total of 6 volumes were published. The New Era reports on Jewish and larger cultural and scientific concerns of the day from a liberal Jewish perspective. For example, the Journal was important in exposing conditions at the Hebrew Orphan Asylum in New York [For an extensive discussion of Lewin?s examination and expose in the pages of The New Era, see Hyman Bogen?s ?The Luckiest Orphans: A History of the Hebrew Orphan Asylum of New York? (Urbana-Champaign, 1992) ] A sampling of articles from these 3 complete volumes is below. Raphael De Cordova Lewin (West Indies, 1844 - New York 1886) studied in London, and then came to the United States, leading Jewish congregations in Shreveport, Louisiana, Savannah, Georgia, and Brooklyn, New York. In addition to "The New Era, " he also published a short-lived Jewish monthly in Jamaica (?The Guide??) , a weekly (?The Jewish Advocate?) , "What is Judaism? ? (1870) and other works. Ferris and Greenberg note in ?Jewish Roots in Southern Soil, ? that Lewin married the Rabbi Abraham Einstein's daughter Adeline in 1867 in Augusta GA, the same year Abraham became president of Savannah's Mickve Israel, and son-in-law Lewin was hired to be leader of the reform congregation?a position from which he was fired, apparently for being too Reform. Korn (1866) notes that ?Additional biographic detals about Lewin, whose middle name was Da Costa, are given in Jacob A. P. M. Andrade, 'A Record of teh Jews in Jamaica' (Kingston, 1941) ...The Occident?[and] The Israelite (Cincinnati) ...Lewin continued to write, edit, and publish until his death in 1886.?

Entrepreneur visionnaire s'inspirant des socialistes utopiques, Godin a édifié une entreprise et des infrastuctures sociales originales qui furent cependant marquées par le paternalisme d'entreprise de l'époque. Associant capital et travail, il a également innové dans les méthodes managériales et la gouvernance d'entreprise. Son oeuvre reste une référence remarquable et un modèle discuté » (Michel Capron).

        JULES VERNE's Vingt Mille Lieues Sous Les Mers / 20000 Leagues Under The Sea Published by Hetzel 1st Illustrated Edition Nov 1871 Rare

      "Vingt Mille Lieues Sous Les Mers", premiere illustre par Hetzel.Jules Verne original French "20,000 Leagues Under The Seas" November 1871 complete 1st illustrated edition by Hetzel. 1st printing / 1st impression.Condition : Very GoodOne of the world's great works of literature in its first single and original binding, as issued by Parisian publisher Hetzel's Biblioteque D'Education et de Recreation, part of the Voyage Extraordinaires (VE) series. This extremely rare 1st single-binding was issued on 16th November 1871, being the true illustrated 1st edition/1st impression of Jules Verne's Vingt Mille Lieues Sous Les Mers, or 20,000 Leagues Under The Seas (note the plural). An estimated 300 copies were issued in various formats for the French market during Nov 1871. As with many of Hetzel's first publications of Verne's works, this book does not state year of publication on the title page, yet it does contain the printed proof variants of the first impression/printing – all of which will be made known to the buyer upon purchase (some of this evidence can be seen in the photographs provided here). This book contains 6 identified first impression markers, the most renowned of which is "Champignons" ("Mushrooms") at bottom of p121 (see photo), only ever seen in the first impression as this was changed a month later for the 2nd impression onwards. Hetzel's next issue of the novel was in 1872, being the 2nd Edition, by which time many of the earlier errors had been corrected.No other copies of this 1st impression appear in British libraries, nor is there any other copy for sale online. Hetzel's original complete first publication of the fully illustrated double volume, the first printing of both Voyage Extraordinaires volumes, both parts making up the whole story of Vingt Mille Lieues Sous Les Mers. The spine is dark green leather bound, with hard board covers decorated in soft pebble-grained patterning. Gilt titles and decorations to spine, panels divided by thin gilt triple-bands. Exterior has light surface wear to leather spine (see photo) but interior in exceptional condition, clear pages throughout, virtually no foxing. This copy has withstood the test of time rather better than other examples from the period, showing very little usage wear internally.The very last page, with TABLE DES MATIERES does have light spot-foxing, as does the half-title page at the fore. There are no inscriptions. Book is in original binding and in good order all round, with near fine sheets within, a first impression very well-preserved. The buyer will be provided with a full and complete list of the first issue points contained upon purchase of this book. These fully verify it as the true first impression (or printing) of November 1871, guaranteed. Enough evidence has been put before you to establish this as first impression, if you know what you are looking for. A copy of this edition appeared for auction in 2010 in Paris which sold for EUR 8000, although it was not in as good condition as this one. The book contains: 111 illustrations by Edouard Riou and Alphonse de Neuville. Engravings by Hildibrand. Printed by Jules Bonaventure of Paris (later editions were printed by Gauthier-Villars). Half-title page; illustrated title page; copyright / title page, all pages present and intact. Light spot foxing to end two pages only. No pages torn or turned at corners. No inscriptions. Not ex-library. Blank front end paper has small nick to edge. The photos show the book is presentable externally, with just light surface wear to the spine. The gilt titles are in good order.The original French novel Vingt Mille Lieues Sous Les Mers is at once a brilliantly written work of literature, a fabulous story and also one of science fiction's earliest high points. Jules Verne's Vingt Mille Lieues Sous Les Mers has become an integral part of world culture enjoyed by children and adults alike. The visionary, confused anti-hero Captain Nemo, the embittered technological genius who conceived of the Nautilus, who brought into reality the world's first truly iconic submarine.434 pp plus 2 pages of "Tables des Matieres" for books 1 & 2.Two major film productions are underway, both scheduled to begin shooting, one by Fox the other by Disney - both are expected to be blockbusters.Delivery Worldwide by arrangement.

        [ Photographically Illustrated Books ] "Haematoma Auris" IN The American Journal of Insanity Vol XXVII

      Utica, New York: State Lunatic Asylum, 1871. First Edition. Cloth. Very Good. First Edition. v, 504 pages. July 1870-June 1871. Brown cloth. Ex-National Institute of Health copy, properly de-accessioned through the Library of Congress with surplus stamp on second flyleaf. Cloth. Contains an article by E. R. Hun, M. D. called "Haemoatoma Auris" (or sanguineous tumor of the eternal ear), describing the condition ("for a long time observed as a frequent concomitant of insanity"). Hun reports on various cases and makes clinical observations. Most importantly, there is a full page photograph of an example inserted opposite page 28 on the last page of the article. Stanley Burns, an eminent medical photography collector, in his "Early Medical Photography in America (1839-1883) [the seventh installment in a series about photography in medicine) notes that this image is "probably the first use of an actual clinical photograph in an American medical journal. Burns notes that his example is signed in the negative "Haines photo library in N. Y." and that both the journal and reprint articles have the photograph. The image in our example is signed by Haines in the negative as well, and has good tonality. An early example of medical photography.
