        SIR HARRY HOTSPUR OF HUMBLETHWAITE

      1871. London: Hurst and Blackett, 1871. 16 pp undated ads. Original red-orange cloth decorated in black. First Edition, first English issue, of this tale of "a proud, generous, irascible old father, a gentle, faithful-unto-death little heroine [his daughter], and a villain of desperate wickedness" [Walpole].~SIR HARRY HOTSPUR first appeared serially in Macmillan's Magazine from May through December 1870; Macmillan sold the English book rights to Hurst & Blackett, but retained the American book rights. In fact, it was Macmillan who contracted for the English edition to be printed, and then they retained 500 sets of the printed sheets and sent them to America, where they were equipped with a Macmillan title page and binding. (This copy is from the first printing; there was a subsequent 1871 printing, likewise with some copies going to America, which is easily identifiable by a smaller H&B spine imprint and numerous variances in the printing.)~This copy was re-backed at some time (retaining the original covers and spine cloth, but with matching later cloth visible at the joints); the original greenish-black endpapers, and the half-title and ads, were retained. Otherwise the volume is in highly-desirable condition (note: toward the end of the volume a few gatherings of leaves are "short" at the bottom: according to Sadleir this is an attribute of the first printing, corrected in the second). We find this H&B edition to be a tough Trollope title to acquire in original cloth. Sadleir TROLLOPE 36(i); Wolff 6794a.

        Charles R. Flint photograph portrait

      New York: Bogardus Photographer. Nov. 1st, 1871. sepia photograph on cardboard. A nice strong image, a few very small brown spots towards edges. Approximately 4-1/4 x 2-1/4 inches. Inscribed, dated and signed on verso by Flint Charles Ranlett Flint (1850 - 1934) was an American business man, best known as the founder of the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company which later became IBM. For his financial dealings he earned the moniker “Father of Trusts.” He was born in Thomaston, Maine and his father, Benhamin Chapman, had changed the family name to Flint after being adopted by an uncle on his mother’s side. The family moved from Maine to New York where his family ran the family’s mercantile firm Chapman & Flint which had been founded in 1837. In 1868 Charles Flint graduated from the Polytechnic Institute in Brooklyn, and in 1871 entered the shipping business as a partner in Gilchrest, Flint & Co., and later W. R. Grace & Co. after a merger. From 1876 to 1879 he served as the Chilean consult at New York City; he also served as consul general to the United States for Nicaragua and Costa Rica. In 1892 he merged several companies to form U. S. Rubber. In 1899 he repeated the same with Adams Chewing Gum, Chiclets, Dentyne, and Beemans to form American Chicle. He was also responsible for the formation of American Woolen in 1899. In 1911 he merged four companies to form the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company. In 1924, the company was re-christened as International Business Machines. Flint served on the board of directors of IBM until 1930 when he retired - wikipedia .

        Paris a Sangre y Fuego. Jornadas de la Comuna [bound with] Proceso de la Commune de Paris. Relación completa y detallada de todas las causas [.] contra los jefes de la ultima insurrección de Paris

      Librería Española de I. Lopez, Barcelona 1871 - A popular and sensational account, for Spanish readers, of the Paris Commune and its aftermath. The first title provides a general narrative of events, heavily illustrated with portraits of the principal figures among both the communards and their opposition, as well as documentary images of Paris in the throes of insurrection. Of special interest is the vividly colored half-title, a striking portrayal of women revolutionaries, the so-called "petroleuses" in action, marching forth with guns and swords while Paris burns in the background. The second title, issued in 30 serial parts of 8 to 12 pages each (all present here), provides a daily account of the state trials of the Commune's leaders that followed the insurrection, beginning in August, 1871 (military tribunals through the summer had already resulted in the incarceration, execution, or deportation of more than 10,000 rank-and-file communards). The proceedings include abridged transcriptions of the major pieces of testimony, with woodcut portraits of convicts and prosecutors; title-pages of most issues are illustrated either with portraits or views. The Second Series, beginning with the issue for September 4th, 1871, deals heavily with the trials of the petroleuses. Both titles rare; OCLC gives four locations for the Jornadas (Yale only in North America); seven locations for the Proceso, of which three are in the U.S. (Yale, N'Western, Michigan). A facsimile edition of the Jornadas was issued by a Spanish publisher in 1979. We would note that two extant copies of the Jornadas are bound, as with our copy, together with the Proceso, suggesting that the publisher issued at least some copies in this format. We would also note that a Spanish government publication, apparently a complete transcript of the state trials, shares its title with the Proceso, but given that it was issued by a different printer and runs to some 700 pages we presume little actual overlap in terms of contents. First title 4to; 46,[2]pp; chromolithographic half-title and advertising leaf; woodcut illustrations in text, one chromolithographic plate at end of text. Second title in two parts, with separate title pages (as issued), comprising: First Series, hojas 1-22; 174pp; Second Series, hojas 1-8, 64pp. All three parts bound as one in recent black quarter-leather over decorated boards. General toning, with occasional foxing, to contents; probable trimming to margins; color plates still bright and clean; Very Good. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Chirurgie der Nieren.

      Ferdinand Enke, Erlangen 1871 - The Beginning of Modern Surgery on the KidneySimon, Gustav (1824-76). Chirurgie der Nieren. 2 vols. in 1, 8vo. viii, 89 [1]; x, 314 [2]pp. 9 lithographed plates (incl. 3 chromolithographs); wood-engraved text illustrations. Erlangen: Enke, 1871 (Vol. I); Stuttgart: Enke, 1876 (Vol. II). 234 x 152 mm. Modern half morocco, marbled boards, original printed wrappers bound in. Light foxing but fine. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 4214. The era of modern urological surgery began in 1869, when Gustav Simon performed the first carefully planned nephrectomy; his patient was a woman suffering from ureterovaginal fistula caused by a botched ovariotomy. After writing a brief (two-page) notice of the operation in 1870 (see G-M 4213), Simon prepared a detailed illustrated account which he published as Volume I of his Chirurgie der Nieren. This volume contains two lithographed plates, the first a schematic drawing of the patient's injury, and the second an unusually artistic rendition (probably from a photograph) of the postoperative patient standing in front of a mirror displaying her surgical scars. The second volume of Chirurgie der Nieren, issued five years after the first, deals with the subject of kidney surgery in general, discussing operations on both injured and diseased kidneys. This volume, over three times as long as its predecessor, contains seven plates (three in color), showing a gunshot injury to the kidney, renal calculus and hypertrophy, and pre- and post-operative pictures of a case of hydronephrosis successfully cured by surgery.

Magnífico ejemplar de una de las mejores ediciones facsímiles del Quijote, reproducida por la novedosa técnica en su momento de la foto-tipografía, muy estimada y ya rara en mercado. En su "Iconografía del Quijote", López Fabra hace una selección de 101 láminas del total de los 2.593 grabados que incluían las sesenta ediciones citadas, por lo que la obra posee carácter antológico. Las sesenta ediciones que seleccionó López Fabra procedían de casi toda Europa y de Estados Unidos, 23 de ellas impresas en París, 15 en Madrid, 11 en Londres, 3 en Barcelona, además de Boston, Bruselas, Copenhague, La Haya, Leipzig, Praga, Tours y Venecia. En el prólogo López Fabra confiaba en que su antología diera "una idea completa de la frecuencia con que se han sucedido las ediciones ilustradas desde el año 1622, de los pueblos en que han visto la luz, de los editores y artistas que las han producido, de la portada de cada una de las ediciones y de la emulación con que se ha procurado acrecentar su número". Los grabados recogidos van desde la primera versión parisina del año 1622, que es la más antigua de esta antología de ediciones ilustradas, hasta la impresa en 1868 en Madrid, incluyendo ediciones exquisitas como la de Armenteros de 1764, la de Tonson de 1738 y la de Ibarra de 1780. Las 101 estampas de la "Iconografía" están ordenadas según la línea argumental del Quijote, de tal modo que las primeras son la presentación de los protagonistas, Don Quijote y Sancho, y la última la de la muerte de Don Quijote, mientras que las aventuras de la posada en la que es ordenado sacerdote, la de los molinos de viento, la del manteo de Sancho o la del yelmo de Mambrino transcurren según la novela de Cervantes. Al final de volumen de las notas, incluye los 8 números del "Boletín de la reproducción foto-tipográfica de la primera edición del Quijote, publicación periódica desde mayo de 1871 a mayo de 1873.

        Set of Nine Powell Expedition Stereoviews from Nevada, Utah, and Arizona

      Very Good. N.D.. Photograph. All stereographs with labels are credited to 1871-1872 second Powell expedition members John K. Hillers and E. O. Beaman. Although originally hired as a boatman, the German-born Hillers assisted Beaman and became the most prominent photographer of the expedition due to his enthusiasm for learning the techniques and willingness to carry heavy equipment. Powell had intended that his cousin Clem would assist, but he proved unenthusiastic. Powell fired Beaman, and hired another photographer Fennemore, who left the expedition because it was too physically strenuous. At this point, Powell made Hillers the head photographer, and after the Colorado River expeditions, he continued to work for Powell at the USGS and Bureau of Ethnology until his retirement. Mount Hillers in the Henry Mountains bears his name. Images are mounted on heavy cardstock, most yellow on front and bearing red ink stamps reading "U. S. Topographical and Geological Survey of the Colorado River of the West" and "By J. W. Powell and A. H. Thompson." One has no captions but has a Department of the Interior title label on the back, with the only date reference present, 1875. A few have a previous owner's name on the back. Three stereoviews have the label of J. F. Jarvis, Publisher, in DC; two of these are the only views attributed to photographer Beaman. Labels are "Across the Canon (Grand Canon) ," "The Shadow (Marble Canon) ," "Cliff between Marble Canon and Side Canon," "Views on Green River. Canon of Desolation Series. Light-House Rock," "Kanab Canon (Blocks of Marble) ," "Views on Green River. Red Canon Series. Rapids [with a person in it] ," "View on Green River. Still-water Canon Series. Shin-ou-av Too-weap," Views on Water Pocket Creek, Belted Cliffs and Lower Lead Cliffs [corner missing, lowest quality of the lot]" , and "Views on the Rio Virgen. Pa-roo-nu-weap Series. Me-a-pong-wu." The Light-House Rock photo has three of the boats in it with a good reflection of the rocks in the river. Most cards have soil on the yellow edges, with soil spots on some images. Conditions range from a few fair (foxing to image, card fraying) to a few near fine images, with contrast varying and a few stunners; overall very good condition for the set. ; 16mo 6" - 7" tall; 9 pp .

        The descent of man, and selection in relation to sex.

      London, John Murray, 1871 - 2 vols, 8vo (190 x 125 mm), pp viii, 423 [1]; 16 [Murray's advertisements, dated January 1871]; viii [ii] 475 [1] 16 [Murray's advertisements, dated January 1871], with numerous wood-engraved illustrations in the text; a very good copy in original cloth, a bit rubbed, in a morocco-backed slipcase. £7500First edition, first issue. The word 'evolution' appears here for the first time in any of Darwin's works, on page 2 of the first volume, 'that is to say before its appearance in the sixth edition of the Origin of species in the following year' (Freeman p 129). 'In the Origin Darwin had avoided discussing the place occupied by Homo sapiens in the scheme of natural selection, stating only that "light will be thrown on the origin of man and his history". Twelve years later he made good his promise with The descent of man, in which he compared man's physical and psychological characteristics to similar traits in apes and other animals, showing how even man's mind and moral sense could have developed through evolutionary processes. 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 classified among the primates; however, this statement, as misinterpreted by the popular press, caused a furore second only to that raised by the Origin' (Norman).There are several important differences between the first and second issues; the most serious is the subject of a one-page inserted 'Postscript' at the beginning of Vol II where Darwin confesses he has fallen into 'a serious and unfortunate error' on pages 297-9 in the first volume and pages 161 and 237 in the second volume concerning sexual selection. This leaf does not appear in the second issue, as the offending passage, and several others detailed in the extensive errata, were corrected in the later printing. 2500 copies of the first issue were published on February 24, and 2000 copies of the second issue in March.Freeman 937; Garrison and Morton 170; Norman 599

        Rheinisches Museum für Philologie. Registerheft zu Band I XXIV der neuen Folge (1842 1869). Herausgegeben von F.G. Welcker, F. Ritschl, A. Klette.

      Johann David Sauerländer, Frankfurt am Main 1871 - TP + 1 Leaf = Uebersicht + [1]-175 + [176] = Berichtigungen, Octavo. First Edition (Schaberg 21). One of the Scarcest of All Nietzsche First Editions.This is one of the rarest of Nietzsche items to come on the market. Whatever copies of this Index do survive, almost all reside on library shelves besides the collected copies of the Rheinisches Museum für Philologie, making it one of the hardest books to acquire for those seeking a 'complete' collection of Nietzsche's works. Despite a title page date of 1871, this Index was likely published in 1872 - as noted below:Close behind the publication of The Birth of Tragedy came another Nietzsche "book." Five years earlier, Ritschl had asked Nietzsche to prepare an Index for the `Rheinisches Museum'-a tedious and time consuming task. Nietzsche shifted much of the work to his sister Elisabeth, although she admits that her brother did make some contributions regarding the later volumes. Elisabeth claims that the dedication to her in Homer as her brother's "helpmate in the stubble-field of philology" is a direct reference to this project. Elisabeth places most of the work in 1869 or 1870 but offers no information concerning the actual date of publication.The title page of the book is dated 1871, but there is circumstantial evidence to suggest that it actually appeared in early 1872. On 30 January 1872, Nietzsche wrote to Ritschl hoping to elicit an opinion regarding The Birth of Tragedy about which his old teacher had been uncharacteristically silent. In the same letter, Nietzsche mentioned the recently arrived copy of the Index and questioned whether a copy had also been sent to his sister. In fact, Elisabeth had just sent him a letter two days earlier which made no mention of the book, indicating that the publication of the Index was a recent event. This inference would place the publication date in January 1872-probably sometime past mid-month. Nietzsche's name appears nowhere in the Index except in the text where it would normally occur referencing the contributions that he had made to the journal. Investigation has turned up no clue as to the length of the press run, but the number of copies printed must have been substantial since this was the basic reference for any collection of back issues of the Rheinisches Museum. (Schaberg, The Nietzsche Canon, pp. 28-29) Contemporary ¾ cloth binding with marbled boards and dark-rust cloth. A generally clean and tight copy with only the most minor of foxing to the early and late leaves. The TP with a single, light blue k stamp at the bottom reading: "Jan Six Institut" An excellent copy of a book that is almost impossible to find in any condition.

        [Block of Lottery Tickets]: The Purchaser or holder of this Card is a member of The Women's Economical Garden Homestead League

      [Boston]: Aurora H.C. Phelps. 1871. Block of four printed lottery tickets. Overall measurement approximately 5.25" x 2.5". Tiny nicks at the corners, else very near fine. A fascinating artifact of a suffragette's attempt to further the lot of women. Aurora Phelps was a womens' rights activist who attended Oberlin College and served in the Civil War "as a hospital nurse of much value and efficiency" (Parker Pillsbury, "How the Working Women Live," The Revolution, 13 May 1869). In 1864 she founded the Women's Garden Homestead League, which advocated public grants of land for women near Boston, where they could farm and build homes. While women were eligible to claim land under the Homestead Act, in practice few women had the resources necessary to move to the West and had to look for land in the East.When the war ended Phelps moved to Boston, where she joined a group of reformers who viewed labor rights as the next major moral issue facing the nation after the abolition of slavery. Struggling to support herself through a series of "laborious" jobs, Phelps found fertile soil for her campaign for Garden Homesteads. She allied with Jennie Collins, a vest maker turned labor activist, and Elizabeth La Pierre Daniels, a sewing machine operator and advocate of the eight-hour day, to establish the Boston Working Women's League, which became an important voice for the city's impoverished working women, many of whom had lost fathers, husbands, or prospects for marriage due to the Civil War.In the spring of 1869, the Boston Working Women's League circulated Phelps's petition for Garden Homesteads, which asked the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to purchase "a tract of good cultivated land," near Boston to be divided into lots ranging from one to five acres, "with good (but the cheapest possible) houses" to be constructed on each lot. In addition, Phelps asked the state to "furnish rations, tools, seeds and instruction in gardening, until such time as the women would be able to raise their own food, or otherwise become self-supporting" ("The Wail of the Women," Workingman's Advocate, 24 April 1869, p.1).Boston working women rallied around Phelps's petition for Garden Homesteads because it envisioned a future in which women could subsist as individuals and as family supporters, free from the crippling assumptions of female dependence within the family that shaped women's secondary role in the labor market and their compromised position within the polity. Phelps gained support from the broader labor movement by appearing at labor conventions and by writing a series of articles for the American Workman, arguing that women had "a righteous claim" on the government for relief as workers, mothers, and citizens ("The Work-woman," American Workman, 26 June 1869).Phelps and the Working Women's League created enough pressure in favor of Garden Homesteads that the Massachusetts Legislative Committee on the Hours of Labor granted them a hearing on 22 April 1869. Phelps testified to women's limited options for earning a living: those who entered domestic service were cut off from their own families, underfed, and "treated as strangers and aliens," adding that she knew, having "tried it herself." Women found it almost impossible to become skilled workers, and in any event "skilled labor fares no better than acquaintance with a single part, so long as compensation is concerned." She urged the legislature to grant the women land near Boston were they could farm and establish homes ("The Working Women in Council," American Workman, May 1869).The legislature did not grant the women's request for land. However, in 1871, the state incorporated the "Women's Economical Garden Homestead League," enabling it to hold property with a value of up to $5,000. As manager of the League, Phelps raised money from about one thousand male and female supporters to purchase a 60-acre (24-hectare) tract of wooded land in Woburn, a few miles north of Boston. Thus began the construction of a utopian community known as "Aurora." Property ownership and governance in Aurora were limited to women, an inversion of gender norms shocking to many male journalists, who reported disparagingly on the community. The New York Times compared Phelps to an Amazon and warned men to stay out of Aurora lest they be pressed into service "as household drudges" deprived of political rights ("Aurora," The New York Times, 28 Oct. 1873).Recognizing the need to diversify the economy of Aurora, Phelps planned to establish a cooperative commercial laundry. She invited Boston labor reformers as well as nearby residents to the dedication of the "Bethesda Laundry" in the fall of 1873. The ceremony included songs, poems, speeches, and "much rejoicing" ("Aurora", The New York Times, 28 Oct. 1873). In the spring, Phelps presided over a large gathering at Tremont Temple in Boston celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Women's Garden Homestead League.Despite this optimistic beginning, construction on the laundry stalled and the community never became economically viable. Ultimately, neither Phelps nor the women who joined her in Aurora could overcome working women's lack of access to capital or credit. Phelps's health declined as she began suffering from Bright's disease. She died at the Bethesda Laundry.Phelps's significance lies in her attempt to redress the economic, social, and political forces that relegated most women without male support to poverty in the 19th Century. Speaking from her own experience as a laboring woman, she urged social recognition for women's roles as family supporters, seeing economic self-sufficiency as essential to women's quest for equality.It is likely that these lottery tickets were an important part of Phelps initiative to found her Utopian community, Aurora. While the tickets convey membership, they are also individually numbered and advertise that the holder is eligible to win one of "1386 Prizes!" Lotteries were a traditional method of raising funds for both public and private purposes, including the United States Lottery, which helped to finance the Revolutionary War. .

        AT THE BACK OF THE NORTH WIND

      1871. [Magic and mystery..."] London: Strahan & Co., 1871. 13 pp undated ads. Original green cloth decorated in black and gilt, all page edges gilt. First Edition of George MacDonald's timeless fairy tale about the young boy Diamond who flies off on the back of his friend the North Wind. Though not mentioned on the title page, there are 76 beautiful wood-engraved illustrations by Arthur Hughes. Serialized in "Good Words for the Young" between November 1868 and October 1870, this was MacDonald's first "long" fairy story to be published in book form; DEALINGS WITH THE FAIRIES (1867) had been a collection of five short tales. About AT THE BACK OF THE NORTH WIND Macdonald's son Greville later wrote,~Of all my father's works, this remains the "best seller." Its secret here again lies in its two-world consciousness... All the strength of its teaching is allusive -- an appeal to the imaginative seeing of a truth rather than a claim for its passive acceptance on the score of authority... Magic and mystery, nonsense and fun -- in no egregious fashions of the day, but in enduring forms of beauty -- did more for us than the moral precept or standardized education.~Sadleir lists three bindings for the first edition of AT THE BACK OF THE NORTH WIND, all with the same pictorial design (though in several colors, without priority). This copy is from the first binding state, with Strahan's anchor device at the foot of the spine and with the "double rustic border" (one black and one gilt) on the front cover; Sadleir further associates dark-brown endpapers with the first binding state, but this copy, like the most-recent other (purple) copy we have had, has the "pinkish-buff" endpapers (still with the binder Burn's ticket).~The condition of this copy is near-fine: externally there is just a little wear at the extremities (such as the rear lower fore-corner); internally the delicate original endpapers are cracked (but re-glued), but the contents are tight and free of foxing.~For a book intended to be handled by children almost a century and a half ago, this is very collectible condition. Sadleir 1474/1474a; Carter (MBV) pp 22-23 (Carter lists only the first Strahan binding and the Daldy Isbister one); Shaberman 43.
