        ILLUSTRATED PRICE LIST OF THE LEADING STYLES OF TOILET SOAPS AND PERFUMERY MANUFACTURED BY COLGATE & COMPANY.

      New York. . 1872 - [33] chromolithograph leaves. Lacking titlepage. Folio. Original black publisher's cloth. Covers lightly mildewed. Titlepage has been excised. Some light scattered foxing and mildewing; occasional offsetting. Verso of first leaf pasted with contemporary newspaper clippings. Images still quite bright and lovely. Good. "Some of the most elaborate chromolithographic works were trade catalogues. The high cost of producing such material, often in full-scale books, illustrates the degree to which consumer product makers were willing to spend on advertising even in the 19th century. This handsome Colgate catalogue contains thirty- four full- page chromolithographs in glowing color by the lithographers, Mayer, Merkel & Ottmann of New York, advertising vrious toiletry articles and soaps. Such catalogues were aimed mainly at the buyers for dry goods and department stores rather than the final consumer" - Reese. Not in OCLC. REESE, STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER, 98.

        LETTRE AUTOGRAPHE signée "Cte de Gobineau", localisée et datée "Stockholm 5 sept 1872".

      - Quatre pages sur un feuillet double (135 X 210). LES RECHERCHES DU COMTE DE GOBINEAU POUR ETABLIR L'ARBRE GENEALOGIQUE DE SA FAMILLE. LETTRE très intéressante, probablement adressée au curé de Beauvais, ville où le comte de Gobineau avait espéré le rencontrer et parler avec lui des questions archéologiques qui les passionnent l'un et l'autre : "[.] Mais je ne vous ai plus revu et je suis contraint de commencer tout droit la correspondance à laquelle vous m'avez autorisé et pour laquelle la lecture des deux excellents ouvrages que je vous dois et qui sont pleins d'érudition et de véritables découvertes, me donne, s'il est possible, encore plus de goût." Il a besoin de l'aide de son correspondant et lui demande s'il pourrait, en attendant, lui obtenir de l'abbé de Cordes le prêt de l'ouvrage qui fait l'historique du nom de Gournay ? Le comte de Gobineau possède lui-même des documents sur ce nom, et c'est à ce sujet qu'il aurait besoin des lumières de son correspondant : "[.] avant et après les conquêtes [.] la famille de ces feudataires du Bray se trouvant alliée aux Coucys et aux Dammartin avait des fiefs dans le nord du Beauvaisis et il n'y a rien là que de naturel. Ceux de ces fiefs que je retrouve avant la dépossession du domaine normand par Philippe Auguste (1202, prise de Gournay) se bornent aux conquêtes et à Bôves dans l'amiénois. Postérieures à 1202 jusque vers 1434, je vois Corneille, canton de Crèvecoeur, Quincampoix, Montigny, le Plesnier, Ravenel, Coivrel, Neufry, Gournay-sur-Aronde, Assy, mis en rapports plus ou moins directs avec la famille par des branches restées en France, après que la souche principale eût été transportée en Angleterre. De là cette souche se ramifiant, produisit Thomas de Gournay, un des meurtriers d'Edouard III et le fils de celui-ci Mathieu, [.]". Le comte de Gobineau poursuit la liste des Gournay jusqu'en "[.] 1440 ( ?) Gauvain de Gournay ; en 1454 Gobinot de Gournay, en 149. Gobinot de Gournay, mêmes armes que nous, puis en Guyenne, mêlés avec nous, des Gournays dans les paroisses de l'Entre-deux-Mers bordelais où nous avons habité. Voici les grands traits de l'histoire à laquelle je souhaite de vous intéresser. [.]". Après d'autres indications il précise que le nom de Gobineau n'a pris cette forme que depuis le XVIème siècle : "[.] avant c'est Gobinot, Gonvineau, Gonvigneau, etc." ; il quitte son correspondant en s'excusant de cette "longue lettre".

        Roughing It

      591 pages with 6 tipped in plates and numerous figures. Octavo (9" x 6"). Issued in full cloth with pictorial spine and cover in gilt and blind stamped cover. (BAL 3326) First edition. The print run for the first edition is uncertain, but the book was published in February 1872 and by month's end 10,855 copies had been bound. By may I, according to a royalty statement, 37,701 copies had been sold, of which 22,43 were in cloth; 13, 952 in sheep and in cloth with gilt edges; 1,176 in three-quarter morocco; and 30 in "special" bindings which included full morocco. By 1879, the proportions were as follows: 96,083 copies sold. Two surviving copies are recorded in the full morocco binding, one of which Twain presented to his wife with her name stamped in gilt on the front cover. The other full morocco copy was identically stamped, except for having no name on the cover. BAL distinguishes between the first and second states by the presence of two words on page 242 (first state) or their absence (second state). But it isn't that simple. Copies, such as this one, are found with just one word present (or one word absent, if you are a pessimist.) And similar damage to the plates has been noted on the following pages: xi.1 (M in My is perfect) as in this copy; 19.1 (y is perfect) as in this copy; and 123.6 up (death! which was correct from death.) as this copy. All of these texts are damaged at some point during the printings(s), and all, including the one on page 242, are found in endless random combinations. At some point, two words were altered: at page 156.2 up "thirteenth" was corrected to "sixteenth" - this copy has the uncorrected "thirteenth" -and on page 330.16 up "Eastern" was corrected to "eastern" - this copy has the uncorrected listing. These changes could distinguish between two printings, but may only distinguish between two later printings. The states of the plates can be guessed at, but if multiple plates were used or mixing of sheets took place (as is clear from surviving copies) they should be viewed with caution.Condition:Professionally re-backed; inner hinges repaired, corners bumped, spine and boards faded, former owner's name to title. Over all a very good copy.

        Relation Historique et Critique de la Guerre Franco-Allemande en 1870-1871

      Paris: Ch. Tanera,, 1872-4. 4 volumes octavo (222 × 148 mm). Contemporary red quarter hard-grain morocco on matching pebble-grained cloth boards, title gilt to the spines, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments, blind panels to the boards, edges sprinkled brown, white moiré endpapers. 14 folding maps. Just a little rubbed, lightly browned, particularly in the margins, but overall a very good set. First editions of this important analysis of the Franco-Prussian War by a noted Swiss military theorist and radical politician. This set from the library of Ulysses S. Grant with tipped in presentation slip, "General Grant, Président des Etats-Unis. Hommage respecteuse de l'Auteur", and with the loosely inserted compliments slip of the Swiss consul general in Washington. A radical in politics, Lecomte "volunteered during the American Civil War, participating in the campaign of the Potomac under McClellan with the rank of Major. In 1865 he entered Richmond with General Ord's black troops, then assisted in Lincoln's funeral in Washington" (Dictonnaire Historique de la Suisse). On his return home he published a three-volume history of the war, a conflict which profoundly influenced his theoretical development. A student, and first biographer, of Jomini, he was the founder and editor-in-chief of the Revue Militaire Suisse, professor of history at l'École Moyenne Vaudois, and librarian of the cantonal library.

Erste deutsche Übersetzung der zweiten vermehrten Auflage von Scropes Werk über den Vulkanismus, in dem er den ersten Versuch einer Klassifikation unternahm. - Der englische Geologe George Julius Scrope (1797-1876) studierte intensiv die vulkanischen Erscheinungen des Vesuv und des Aetna, wo er im folgenden sogar Augenzeuge der großen Eruption des Vesuvs im Okt. 1822 wurde. "Scropes Verdienste für die Geologie und Gesteinskunde beruhen nicht nur in der siegreichen Vertretung vulkanistischer Anschauungen gegen den Neptunismus G. A. Werners, sondern vor allem in der vorzüglichen Erklärung der Entstehung und Zusammensetzung der Vulkane, in der Widerlegung L. v. Buchs Theorie von den Erhebungskratern und in der Annahme von unterirdischem Gesteinsmagma, das durch die Expansivkraft von Dämpfen an die Oberfläche gelangt.". (Korschelt/Linck/Oltmanns, Hwtb. d.

        Gallus Ferrugineus [Red Jundgle-Fowl]

      New York: Published for the Author, Daniel Giraud Elliot, 1872. A beautiful image from the most splendid of Elliot's great monographs, "A Monograph of the Phasianidae or Family of the Pheasants." The magnificent size and beautiful colouring of the plates after Joseph Wolf's charcoal drawings reflect the importance which Elliot attached to the Phasianidae. Of all the families in the ornithological system, he regarded it as the one most vital to the human race, "containing within it the species that afford food for thousands of mankind, and also those which are the original source of all the domestic poultry met with throughout the civilized world." Cf. Anker 130; Fine Birds Books (1990), p. 95; Nissen IVB 295; Wood p. 331; Zimmer p. 206. Hand-coloured lithograph, finished with gum arabic, after Joseph Wolf by J. Smit, printed by P.W.M. Trap. Very good condition.
