        Set of 7 novels, uniformly bound, with a presentation inscription, with two ALS tipped in; and with a stereo card of the Stowe house in Florida, inscribed on verso by Stowe

      Boston: Fields, Osgood & Co, 1869-1872 - From 1852 to 1864 Harriet Beecher Stowe and her family lived in Andover, Mass., where Calvin was professor at the Andover Theological Seminary. Among the more prominent members of the Andover community at the time was Martha Punchard, the widow of a wealthy banker and notable town benefactor. Benjamin H. Punchard, who bequeathed $50,000 to Andover for the purpose of founding its first public school. As Benjamin and Martha were childless, they adopted Elizabeth (as well as one other daughter), who married Hall Faile Baldwin on February 22, 1870. Although by that time the Stowes had moved to Hartford, the present collection makes it clear that a lasting friendship had been formed. Tipped into the copy of UNCLE TOM'S CABIN are two autograph letters: 1) Small invitation in Mrs. Stowe's handwriting, addressed to "Miss Punchard," and reading "Mrs. Stowe would be happy to see Miss E. Punchard at her home at 7:00 January 17, 1870. Dear Lizzy - This party is this week expressly [underlined] for you [underlined] before you go to Nyack." 2) Letter from Mrs. Stowe, dated February 14, 1870, to Lizzie's mother, Martha Punchard: "My dear Mrs. Punchard, I am sorry that I shall not be able to come help you give away Lizzie - what a good woman you must be to give her to any body and how grateful somebody ought to be to you as well as to her. Dear friend, I know it is a troubled joy we mothers feel in giving what is dearest to us to be had & held by another. It is the most disinterested thing-only we can't help ourselves. Well we will console with each other & meanwhile I wish you a sunny day and all manner of kind & sunny influences upon your wedding. May you have a bright day & the smile of the sun & God bless you. Your loving friend, H. B. Stowe." In the copy of THE MINISTER'S WOOING accompanying this matching set, Stowe has penned the following presentation inscription: "Elizabeth Punchard from Harriet Beecher Stowe - February 22, 1870." [This is the date of Elizabeth's wedding to Hall Faile Baldwin]. Also from the family is a stereo card of the Stowe house in Florida, showing Calviin and Harriet and the girls sitting on the front porch; inscribed on verso by in Stowe's hand: "Mrs. H.B. Stowes cottage at Mandarin Florida / Prof and Mrs. Stowe." Finally, a copy of MRS. STOWE'S RELIGIOUS POEMS, ILLUSTRATED (Boston: Ticknor & Fields, 1867, inscribed, in H. B. Stowe's hand "Mrs. Punchard from her friend H. B. Stowe"). The matching set of seven novels comprise Uncle Tom's Cabin 1869; Agnes of Sorrento 1869; Nina Gordon 1870; Old Town Folks 1870; The May Flower Etc. 1871; The Minister's Wooing 1871; The Pearl of Orr 's Island 1872 All early reprints. 7 vols., 8vo. .

        De l'électrisation localisée et de son application à la physiologie, à la pathologie et à la thérapeutique (avec envoi à Alexis Joffroy)

      Paris, J.B. Baillière et Fils, 1872. - Paris, J.B. Baillière et Fils, 1872 ; in-8, XII, 1120 pp., 3 planches h.t. (dont 1 dépl. en couleur) et 255 figures dans le texte, demi-chagrin vert bouteille de l'époque, dos lisse orné de filets dorés, envoi autographe signé de l'auteur au neurologue Alexis Joffroy, quelques rousseurs, sinon très bon état. Troisième édition de cet ouvrage très novateur, en grande partie originale, la plus complète et la mieux illustrée (édition définitive). La première partie (p. 1-308) est consacrée à la méthodologie. Dans la seconde partie, Duchenne rapporte ses "recherches cliniques, électro-pathologiques, électro-thérapeutiques, prothétiques et orthopédiques" dans différentes affections neurologiques et neuro-musculaires. C'est dans cette édition que Duchenne isole pour la première fois (à partir d'une série de 13 observations personnelles), sous le nom de "paralysie pseudo-hypertrophique", la myopathie qui porte toujours son nom, et qui est la première grande affection héréditaire infantile à avoir bénéficié (en 1987) de la génétique moléculaire. Il décrit aussi, pour la première fois, la paralysie radiculaire supérieure, bien étudiée ultérieurement par le neurologue allemand Erb (paralysie de type Duchenne-Erb). Par ailleurs, Duchenne donne une description remarquée de la poliomyélite (pp. 381-437) ; il avait inspiré la thèse de son fils sur ce sujet ; il reconnait la survenue possible chez l'adulte d'une poliomyélite. Le chapitre (pp. 486-563) consacré à l'atrophie musculaire progressive, ou maladie d'Aran-Duchenne, est ici dans sa version définitive. Les pages IX à XII donnent la liste des publications antérieures de l'auteur. Exemplaire séduisant, avec un envoi de Duchenne à Joffroy, qui était alors interne des hôpitaux et qui deviendra (après avoir été l'élève de Charcot, de Duchenne et de Vulpian) médecin des hôpitaux puis titulaire de la chaire des maladies mentales et de l'encéphale à Sainte-Anne (les envois de Duchenne sont très rares).

        Alice's Adventures In Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass.

      MacMillan and Co. 1866 &, London 1872 - First editions. Octavo, two volumes. Bound in early 20th-century full red morocco by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. Gilt vignettes to front and rear panels of each volume, gilt tooling on spine. All edges gilt, silk endpapers. Original cloth covers and spine bound in at rear. In fine condition. Housed in a early custom box, which shows some wear. Alice's Adventures were "born on a golden afternoon" in July 1862, when the Rev. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll) took the three small daughters of Dean Liddell of Christ Church on a boating trip up the Isis. Carroll delighted the three children by relating Alice's adventures, and eventually promised his favorite among the three, Alice Liddell, to write the story down for her. Through the Looking-Glass can be seen as a mirror image of the Alice's Adventures. For example, the latter begins outdoors in the warmth of May 4 and uses the imagery of playing cards, while the former begins indoors on a snowy, cold November 4 and uses the imagery of chess. "The two Alice books completed the reinstatement of the imagination, so long disapproved of by the opponents of fairy stories, to its proper place. 'Alice is, in a word, a book of that extremely rare kind which will belong to all the generations to come until the language becomes obsolete'" (Carpenter & Prichard, 102).

        Gallus Varius (Forked-tail Jungle-fowl)

      New York 1872 - Daniel Giraud Elliot (1835-1915) was an American zoologist and a founding member of the American Museum of Natural History in New York and the American Ornithologists’ Union. Elliot was a noted figure in the nineteenth century scientific community for his talent as an artist and his collection of ornithological specimens, thought to be the of the finest in private collection. Elliot traveled throughout Europe and Asia studying and collecting. Through his own financing, Elliot was able to produce numerous comprehensive color-plate books on birds and mammals, without having to concede size or quality. Considered the highest achievement of Elliot’s career, he published two volumes of “A Monograph of the Phasianidae” from 1870-1872. The monograph was issued in six parts and contains over 80 extraordinarily detailed and beautiful plates. The superb plates from Daniel Giraud Elliot’s “A Monograph of the Phasianidae or Family of Pheasants” display the outstanding attention to detail and skill of the author as well as the artists Joseph Wolf, Joseph Smith and John Gerrard Keulemans, whom worked with Elliot on many of the prints. This lithograph, Gallus Varius, measures 23.25” x 18.5”, and is in mint condition. Commonly called Forked-tailed, Javan or Green Jungle-fowl, these birds are expertly hand-colored, the male in vibrant shades extending from head to tail-feather. The wattle and crown of the male is has lighter shades of pink, green, yellow and blue, whereas his body is rich with color and patterns in green, blue, yellow and orange with a dark black underside. The female Javan Junglefowl is more plain in color but has intricate patterns throughout her feathers in shades of black, brown and white. Their poses and the lush background add to this dynamic lithograph.

        A Handbook to the Birds of Egypt.

      London: John Van Voorst, 1872. - 8vo., (9 2/8 x 6 inches). 14 FINE hand-coloured lithographs by Keulemans. Contemporary half tan calf, gilt, pink cloth (endleaves a bit spotted). Provenance: The supra libros, engraved armorial bookplate of Sir James Lamont (1828-1913), 14th laird of Knockdow, on the front paste-down, and signature on the title-page. First edition. Shelley, the nephew of the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, made three trips to the Nile and many of the birds depicted here are illustrated for the first time by Keulemans who began his career as a taxidermist providing stuffed birds to the State Museum of Natural History at Leiden. The director of that museum encouraged Keulemans to pursue his love of natural history, where he obtained a scientific appointment after an expedition to West Africa in 1865 and 1866. His accomplishments in illustration came to the notice of Richard Bowdler Sharpe, later a director of the British Museum, who encouraged him to move to England. Keulemans quickly achieved wide recognition and established himself as the most popular bird artist of the late Victorian period. He regularly provided illustrations for "The Ibis" and "The Proceedings of the Zoological Society". He illustrated many important bird books including Buller's "A History of the Birds of New Zealand" (1873), Shelley's "Monograph of the Sun-Birds" (1876-1880), William Vincent Legge's "Birds of Ceylon" (1880), Daniel Giraud Elliot's "Monograph of the Hornbills" (1887-1892), Richard Bowdler Sharpe's "Monograph on Kingfishers" (1868-1871), Henry Seebohm's "Monograph on Thrushes" (1902), and Osbert Salvin's "Biologia Centrali-Americana" (1879-1904). From the distinguished library of Sir James Lamont, who was a seasoned traveler: "Among the voyages undertaken by the late Sir James Lamont, Bart of Knockdow (a brief sketch of whose career was published yesterday), were visits to his river estate in Trinidad. Soon after succeeding to this estate, in 1850, he crossed the Cape to Trinidad in a coolie-ship, which was wrecked in the Boca de Monos, without loss of life. During the next few years he made three more voyages to the West Indies, as well as to the United States and Canada. He also visited Egypt, Greece, and Turkey. In 1858 7 1859, in his yacht Ginvera, a schooner of 142 tons, he made voyages to Spitzbergon, and in 1861 he published an account of his sporting adventures in northern seas under the title of "Season with the Sea-Horses". In 1869 Mr. Lamont built the Diana, a three-masted Schooner of 251 tons, with auxiliary steam, specially designed for Arctic travel, and in that year and the two following years he made further expeditions to the Polar seas. An account of these voyages appeared in 1876 under the title of "Yatching in the Artic Seas." Mr. Lamont made his last voyage to the West Indies in 1889" (Obituary "The Scotsman" Thursday 31st July 1913). Nisen IVB 872; Anker 469; Fine Bird Books, p.108; Wood, p.566; Zimmer, p.588.

        Map of the Denver and Rio Grande Railway and Connections; Map of the Mexico National Railway, Including Its Proposed Extensions and Connections, Showing Also the Relative Position of Mexico to the United States the West Indies, and the Adjacent Oceans

      National Railway Publications Comp. 1872 - Albert von Motz Map of the Denver and Rio Grande Railway and Connections; Map of the Mexico National Railway, Including Its Proposed Extensions and Connections, Showing Also the Relative Position of Mexico to the United States the West Indies, and the Adjacent Oceans Philadelphia: National Railway Publication Comps., 1872 The Denver & Rio Grande railroad was established in 1870 by soldier and railroad builder General William Jackson Palmer as a narrow gauge railway system with the grand plan of connecting Denver with Mexico City. The line was notable for its many engineering achievements, including the highest railroad beds in the United States and the first large-scale application of narrow gauge road. At one time the railroad had more narrow gauge track than any other line in North America. Palmer was one of the few U.S. entrepreneurs who desired to connect the country in a north-south orientation and was especially singular in his desire to extend his railroad into Mexico, a goal which he eventually accomplished by working in Mexico itself. Although the railroad was eventually absorbed by the Union Pacific, its final achievements were noteworthy. It ran the last passenger train in the West after the creation of Amtrak, and its scenic trains operate even today in Colorado and New Mexico. The report with its detailed maps to stockholders is by no means a dry corporate production. In fact, it is an enthusiastic promotional of Colorado by a passionate visionary. Palmer declares: “The idea of a north and south railway, following the eastern base of the Rocky Mountains from the principal city of the new West-Denver-southward to Mexico, arose from a conviction that this belt of country had especial advantages in its location, climate, and natural resources.” Palmer sets forth the advantages and potential in the region, including mining, stock raising, agriculture, natural resources, and towns waiting to spring forth. For example, he warmly promotes the growing town of Colorado Springs established by him only two years earlier. His vision of a new West opened up large areas to settlement that had been by-passed by other railroads. Not immune however to potential problems, Palmer devotes a large portion of this report to defending and explaining the advantages of narrow gauge railroad construction. General William Jackson Palmer (1836-1910) was a distinguished Union cavalry officer and railroad executive. After the war, he served as an official of the Union Pacific Railroad’s Eastern Division, which, became the Kansas City Pacific and later merged into the Union Pacific. In 1870, he became president of the Denver and Rio Grande and completed its line westward by 1883. During the 1880s, he organized and constructed Mexican railroads, and two lines from Mexico City to the border were completed by 1890. The maps alone make this report valuable and important and illustrate Palmer’s sweeping vision. The first map, showing the road from Denver to the Mexican border, illustrates the line as conceived in the U.S., and was also probably handed out as a separate promotional piece, not only for investors but also for potential settlers. The second map (still bound in the wrappers) shows the Company’s lands that are available for settlement and development. The third map (still bound in the wrappers) demonstrates the difficulty of the grades and terrain that must be overcome. The final map is a grand production showing the U.S. and Mexico with the projected route to join the two countries and the nexus of international and national trade routes that meet the terminus at Vera Cruz. This last map, which is rare and little-known, demonstrates graphically Palmer’s plan to tie Denver to the rest of the world.

        Originalt brev.

      Originalt håndskrevet brev, dateret 10/11 1872. Kbhvn. Med fuld signatur og modtager forneden. Brevet har fire foldemærker og en arkivannotation i øverste venstre hjørne, men er ellers meget velholdt.. Fantastisk brev fra J.P. Jacobsen til sin forlægger Frederik Hegel, der fuldt ud lyder: 'Jeg mener at den nye Bog af Darwin bør hedde: "Menneskeslægtens Oprindelse og Parringsvalget." hvilket ogsaa er den ordrette Oversættelse undtagen for det første Ords Vedkommende, men: "Menneskets Oprindelse" lyder saa ilde. // Med udmærket Højagtelse J.P. Jacobsen.'** J.P. Jacobsen, der var meget naturalistisk interesseret og skrev prisopgave om alger, studerede grundigt Darwins nye og dengang overordentligt kontroversielle tanker, og påtog sig mammutopgaven at oversætte Darwins værker til dansk. I 1872 udkom 'Arternes Oprindelse'. Titlen på den næste store bog krævede dog lidt finpudsning: Den endelige titel blev 'Menneskets Afstamning og Parringsvalget', der udkom 1874-1875. Og imens skrev han mesterværkerne Mogens og Fru Marie Grubbe

Third edition, revised and enlarged. Boston: Alexander Moore, 1872.Third edition. Octavo (10 5/16 x 6 3/4 inches; 262 x 172 mm). [iii]-xii, 13-98, [2, blank] pp. (Preliminaries are incorrectly numbered in all editions.)

Previous owner\'s pencil drawings on front and back endpapers dated 1884. Pencil lines through the paper in a small area. A very clean and bright copy.ìKneeland [1821-1888], a professor of zoology and physiology and secretary of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from its founding in 1865 until 1878, produced one of the better guide books to the Yosemite region. It is an especially attractive book due to the inclusion of an excellent series of mounted photographic images. The book is based on the authorís first visit to Yosemite Valley in July 1870. In addition to serving as a guide book, it forms a narrative of his trip from Boston to Yosemite and return. Kneeland made every effort to obtain current and accurate information and each of the later editions of the guide incorporates new material. The second edition adds ëThe Yosemite in 1872í and ëThe Recent Earthquake in Yosemite.í Though not identified by name, the account of the 1872 earthquake and much of ëThe Yosemite in 1872í is based on information indirectly supplied by John Muir. It is the first appearance of Muirís writings in a bookî (Currey & Kruska).Cowan, p. 333 (third edition). Currey & Kruska 225. Farquhar 10b. Kimes & Kimes 3, 5, 7, and 8. Rocq 5217.HBS 64799.$1,500
