        Carteggio costituito da tre lettere autografe firmate (di cui una incompleta) del celebre statista. A. Lettera autografa firmata Roma 25 1872. Quattro pagine in - 8. B. Roma 2 maggio 1872. Quattro pagine in - 8, (più alcuni frammenti, presenta ampie mancanze). C. Roma 20 maggio 1872. Quattro pagine in - 8. Le missive riguardano Laura, fanciulla con cui ebbe una relazione tormentata, prima di sposarsi con Elena Sizzo nel 1873 (due sono dirette all'amata e una ad un Commendatore); a puro titolo di esempio ne riportiamo alcuni passi. Ma che ho fatto per meritar che tu non degnassi neppure rispondere alla mia ultima lettera? perché questo silenzio'... Non è possibile che mi tratti in tal modo per tuo proprio impulso mentre poi quanto io orribilmente ci soffra. Dilla una volta per sempre questa amara verità? ?l'uomo che più di tutti, prima di tutti ti ha amata, all'uomo che ti ama sempre, al padre di tuo figlio?. Le missive sono danneggiate da numerosi strappi e presentano ampi interventi di restauro con evidenti tracce di colla e nastro adesivo.

The Franco-Prussian War or Franco-German War, often referred to in France as the War of 1870 (19 July 1870 10 May 1871), was a conflict between the Second French Empire and the Kingdom of Prussia. Prussia was aided by the North German Confederation, of which it was a member, and the South German states of Baden, Wrttemberg and Bavaria. The complete Prussian and German victory brought about the final unification of Germany under King Wilhelm I of Prussia. It also marked the downfall of Napoleon III and the end of the Second French Empire, which was replaced by the French Third Republic. As part of the settlement, the territory of Alsace and part of Lorraine was taken by Prussia to become a part of Germany, and it remained so until the end of World War I when it was returned to France in the Treaty of Versailles. Condition: In a half calf binding with cloth covered boards. Externally, some wear to the extremities and marks to the boards. Front board very tender and likely to become detached. Internally, textblock generally firmly bound although the front free endpapers are attached to the front board. Clean with just the odd spot or mark. Ink signature to front free endpaper.

        Boscobel; Or, The Royal Oak

      ONT>, 1872. ONT>, 1872 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce edition of Boscobel; Or, The Royal Oak A Tale of the Year 1651, a historical novel by William Harrison Ainsworth. Withillustrations by Rimbault. First edition. In three volumes complete. With a preface dated 1872 to front of volume one, four illustrations to volume one, four to volume two and a further four to volume three. Boscobel Houseis a building in the parish of Boscobel in Shropshire. It has been, at various times; a farmhouse, a hunting lodge, and a holiday home; but it is most famous for its role in the escape of Charles II after the Battle of Worcester in 1651. Today it is managed by English Heritage. William Harrison Ainsworth (1805 - 1882) was an English historical novelist. Ainsworth briefly tried the publishing business, but soon gave it up and devoted himself to journalism and literature. His first success as a writer came with Rookwood in 1834, which features Dick Turpin as its leading character. A stream of thirty-nine novels followed, the last of which appeared in 1881. From 1840 to 1842 he edited Bentley's Miscellany, from 1842 to 1853, Ainsworth's Magazine and subsequently The New Monthly Magazine. His Lancashire novels cover altogether 400 years and include The Lancashire Witches, 1848, Mervyn Clitheroe, 1857, and The Leaguer of Lathom. Jack Sheppard, Guy Fawkes, 1841, Old St Paul's, 1841, Windsor Castle, 1843, and The Lancashire Witches are regarded as his most successful novels. He was very popular in his lifetime and his novels sold in large numbers. Previous owner's bookplate and ink inscription to front of volume one. Condition: In original cloth bindings. Externally, generally smart but with slight wear to extremities, rubbing and the odd mark to boards. Two hinges tender, two strained. Internally, bindings strained in places with a few pages loosening. Bright but with the odd spot and handling mark. Overall: GOOD.

        HENCE THESE TEARS. A NOVEL

      London: Richard Bentley and Son, 1872.. London: Richard Bentley and Son, 1872.. Three volumes. Original medium chocolate brown cloth, side panels intricately decorated in black, spines ruled and lettered in gilt. Errata in first volume. Early ink name in each volume (repeated in pencil), a tiny bit shaken, fore- tips and spine ends rubbed, some foxing early and late, rear inner hinge of volume one cracking a bit (but sound), rear inner hinge of volume two neatly mended; a good, sound set. First edition. One of Lord de Tabley's four very rare three-volume novels, two of them published pseudonymously, and one other besides this published anonymously: SALVIA RICHMOND (1878). Neither of the anonymous works are recorded in NCBEL. Warren was a prolific poet as well, publishing a number of collections, including several under the pseudonyms 'George F. Preston' and 'William Lancaster'. His earliest collection was a collaborative volume with a close Oxford friend, George Fortescue, whose accidental death in 1859 had a powerful influence on him. He wrote knowledgeably on numismatics, botany, and bookplates, but he temporarily abandoned poetry and drama after the absolute failure of THE SOLDIER'S FORTUNE (1876). John Lane and Watts-Dunton encouraged him to publish a retrospective collection in 1893 and a new collection appeared in 1895, the year of his death. Sadleir had all four of his novels; Wolff had only A SCREW LOOSE. OCLC/Worldcat locates three (or four) sets: UCLA, the British Library (two entries), and the Nat'l Library of Scotland. SADLEIR 3170.

        L'Internationale et Le Jacobinisme Au Ban De L'Europe Jacobin Club

      Paris - E. Lachaud., 1872. Paris - E. Lachaud., 1872 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Two volumes detailing the activities of the Jacobinmovement during the French Revolution. The Jacobin Club was the most famous and influential political club in the development of the French Revolution, so-named because of the Dominican convent where they met, located in the Rue St. Jacques, Paris. The club originated as the Club Benthorn, formed at Versailles from a group of Breton deputies attending the Estates General of 1789. There were thousands of chapters throughout France, with a membership estimated at 420,000. After the fall of Robespierre the club was closed. The Jacobin movement encouraged sentiments of patriotism and liberty amongst the populace. The movement's contemporaries, such as Louis XVI, located the effectiveness of the revolutionary movement not in the force and bayonets of soldiers, guns, cannons and shells but by the marks of political power (Schama; 1989; 279). Ultimately, the Jacobins were to control several key political bodies, in particular the Committee of Public Safety and, through it, the National Convention, which was not only a legislature but also took upon itself executive and judicial functions. The Jacobins as a political force were seen as less selfish, more patriotic, and more sympathetic to the Paris Populace (Bosher; 1989; 186). This gave them a position of charismatic authority that was effective in generating and harnessing public pressure, generating and satisfying sans-culotte pleas for personal freedom and social progress. Condition: In half-calf bindings. Externally sound, with some rubbing and some marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Armorial bookplates ('Alington') and binder's labels('Gregg's Foreign Circulating Library')to front pastedowns. Pages are bright, but with some scattered light spotting. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Poems of Felicia Hemans

      Edinburgh; London - William Blackwood and Sons, 1872. Edinburgh; London - William Blackwood and Sons, 1872 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An extensive collection of the poetical works of influential poet, Felicia Hemans. Bound in cloth with gilt lettering. There are no engraved plates present. With an engraved frontispiece of the author. Felicia Dorothea Hemans, 1793 - 1835, was an English poet. Hemans's influence is traceable in nineteenth-century verse, especially in new forms of dramatic lyric. . . Most Victorian editions and reissues of her work omitted her learned notes and long poems, however, and helped to cast her as a parlour poet and the very type of the sentimental poetess. . . Hemans is now recognized by many literary historians as the most notable British poet flourishing between the death of Byron and the rise of Tennyson and the Brownings -ODNB. Condition: The textblock binding is tight and firm. The front inner hinge is strained and the rear inner hinge is slightly strained. There is some wear to the extremities, including some rubbing and discolouration, with sunning to the spine and a small library label. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright. With a Worcester public library label to the front pastedown and ink number to the front free-endpaper. Overall the condition is very good..

        LIST OF ARTICLES WHICH WILL BE ON EXHIBITION IN KIOTO OF JAPAN FOR FIF

      , 1872. 1872. Paperback. Very Good. [KYOTO EXHIBITION] Kyoto Hakuran Kaisha. LIST OF ARTICLES WHICH WILL BE ON EXHIBITION IN KIOTO IN JAPAN FOR FIFTY DAYS FROM (MEIJI 5TH YEAR 3D MONTH 10TH DAY) APRIL 17TH 1872. HAKURANKAI HINMOKU Kyoto-fu, Meiji 5 [1872] The bilingual text of this 4 page 8vo. size pamphlet, issued upon the occasion of the second Exhibition at Kyoto in early 1872 is quite scarce and interesting. Issued about the same time as the HOTEL REGULATIONS AND RULES FOR THE DIRECTION OF EXHIBITORS and a year after the RULES FOR ADMITTING FOREIGNORS TO KIOTO, it is among the earliest instances for English language printing Japan for commercial purposes. It reproduces a cursive hand. A very unusual and interesting Exhibition item from the very beginning of Japanese-foreign interaction after the Restoration, when admission to the old capital and the interior of Japan in general was still being restricted. Published at about the same time [also by the Hakurankai (Exhibition Company)] as the English translation of Yamamoto's GUIDE TO KYOTO, which was typeset and printed in Osaka by a European printer resident there. The GUIDE had proclaimed itself the first English book published in Japan. The Yamamoto GUIDE may well have been the first book typeset in English, but this work, as well as the HOTEL REGULATIONS and THE RULES FOR ADMITTING FOREIGNERS in woodblock clearly precede it or are at the very least contemporary. Though many works had already been printed with English vocabulary words and phrases, this is the earliest we have seen to reproduce a full text or practical information meant for the non-Japanese speaker. Printed fukuro-toji, Japanese-style, the pamphlet is unbound. Interesting from the standpoint of printing in Japan and the history of International Exhibitions. Very good, scarce.

      London. Dean & Son. No date [circa 1872]. - 59 pages. Illustrated throughout with hand-coloured engravings. Original full colour pictorial paper-covered boards. Quarto. Expertly re-backed; some occasional finger-marking and light soiling; corners worn; else a very good copy of a scarce printing. On the title-page, beneath the pseudonymous name of the person who adapted the work from Cervantes, is written in pencil, 'Mrs Frances, Upcher Cousens.' Mrs. Cousens wrote a number of books for Dean and, it so happens, this copy came with a small collection of books written by her, so we suspect she is in fact the person responsible and that this may even by her own copy.

Complete in two volumes. Bookseller's labels of 'Veuve J. Boyveau', France, to front pastedowns. John Stuart Mill FRSE (20 May 1806 8 May 1873) was a British philosopher, political economist and civil servant. He was also an influential contributor to social theory, political theory, and political economy. He has been called the most influential English-speaking philosopher of the nineteenth century Mill's conception of liberty justified the freedom of the individual in opposition to unlimited state control. He was a proponent of utilitarianism, an ethical theory developed by Jeremy Bentham. Hoping to remedy the problems found in an inductive approach to science, such as confirmation bias, he clearly set forth the premises of falsification as the key component in the scientific method. Mill was also a Member of Parliament and an important figure in liberal political philosophy. In this work, he formulated the five principles of inductive reasoning that are known as Mill's methods. Condition: In original publisher'scloth bindings, paper spine labels. Externally worn, joints starting, one hinge has failed and the others are weak. In need of a sympathetic rebinding.

        2 Autograph letters signed to his publisher Bailliere, with 2 articles on his scientific work.

      Paris 1872 - Duchenne de Boulogne, Guillaume B. A. (1806-75). (1). 2 A.Ls.s. on his embossed stationery to the publisher Bailliere, dated 22 and 29 August 1872. 2pp. plus integral blank (22 August) & 2-1/2pp. (29 August). Together 4-1/2pp. 216 x 135 mm. & 210 x 135 mm. Creased where previously folded, edges of first letter chipped, light dust-soiling to second letter, but very good. Both letters docketed and annotated by recipient. With: (2). Motet, A[uguste] (1832- ). Duchenne (de Boulogne) et son oeuvre. loge. . . . Offprint from Ann. med.-psych., 8th series, 3 (1896). 8vo. 31 [1]pp. Paris: Masson et Cie., 1896. 244 x 158 mm. Original wrappers, tear in front wrapper. With: (3). Brissaud [Edouard] (1852-1909). L'oeuvre scientifique de Duchenne de Boulogne. Extract from Arch. d'electricite medicale exp. et clin. 7 (1899). 8vo. [448]-468pp. 242 x 162 mm. Disbound, several leaves loose, light foxing. Two letters from the founder of modern neurology in France, best known for his electrophysiological studies of the nerves and muscles; see G-M 614, 624, 4732, 4736, etc. In his first letter, Duchenne notifies his publisher that he will be returning several books lent to him by the Baillieres for the purpose of compiling an unnamed work-possibly the collection of articles published in the early 1870s under the title Contributions a l'Ètude du systeme nerveux et du systeme musculaire. Among the books Duchenne borrowed were a 2-volume work by Jaccoud (possibly his Traite de pathologie interne, 1870-71); a work by Holmes on the diseases of children (possibly Timothy Holmes' Surgical Treatment of the Diseases of Infancy and Childhood, 1868); Vol. III of Francois Longet's Traite de physiologie (3rd ed., 1868-69); and Leuret and Gratiolet's Anatomie comparee du systeme nerveux (1839-57). In the second letter Duchenne reminds the Baillieres that the Jaccoud work mentioned in his previous letter had been sent to him in error, and that the BailliËres had billed him twice for the Leuret-Gratiolet set. Accompanying these letters are two articles on Duchenne's life and scientific work.

        Zanzibar;

      London: Tinsley Brothers, , 1872. London: Tinsley Brothers, , 1872. City, Island, and Coast. 2 volumes, octavo (217 x 137 mm). Original red pebble-grain cloth, titles to spines gilt, ornamental panels to boards in blind, yellow endpapers. Volume I: frontispiece and 3 etched plates, one lithographic folding map, 4 etched plans. Volume II: frontispiece and 6 etched plates. Pencil underlining and marginalia throughout both volumes. Spines a little sunned, ends and corners slightly rubbed and bumped, mild foxing to prelims and endmatter. Volume I: minor chip to margin of frontispiece, light dampstains to margins of plates, short split to margin of map, closed tear to map professionally repaired with archival tape to verso, text block lightly cracked (pp. 160-1; 288-9; 400-1), but still firm. First edition, in the second issue cloth, of what Casada considers to be the author's most important African-related work. During the expedition to East Africa in 1857-9, Burton was delayed in Zanzibar for close to half a year. During this delay, he 'compiled an enormous quantity of notes about Zanzibar, including a book manuscript, which he entrusted to an official of the East India Company for dispatch to the Royal Geographical Society' (ODNB). The intention was likely that these notes were to be published already in 1860 (Preface, Volume I, p. ix). However, neither notes nor manuscript reached the Royal Geographic Society, a state of which Burton learnt in March 1859, upon arriving back in Zanzibar. Fortunately, in 1865 the manuscript was located in a strong box belonging to the Bombay branch of the Royal Asiatic Society. Apart from detailing the journey to Zanzibar, Volume I is mainly concerned with various aspects of the region, including climate, geography, flora and fauna, industry, and the ethnic makeup of the population. Meanwhile, Volume II covers the journey to Mombasa and up the Pangani river, an excursion begun in early January 1857 and abandoned in April as both Burton and Speke were brought down with fever and dysentery; this volume also gives a brief overview of the East African expedition.

        Autographed Letter Signed

      Washington, D.C.: , 1872 Washington, D.C., 1872. unbound. 4 pages (front and back) with each two-page spread measuring 10 x 16 inches, marked "Private," Washington, D.C., April 12, 1872. Rare letter by the American politician and negotiator to the former Confederate States of America Treasurer Tyler, in preparation for Richardson's successful trip to Geneva to obtain damages from Great Britain, letting Tyler know of a Judgeship opportunity available to him by the means of Richardson's resignation, in part: "...In any article that is written in the newspaper perhaps it will be well to state the fact of the immediate cause of my resignation, the desire of [Secretary of the Treasury] Boutwell to have me manage the refunding of the national debt after my successful operation of the hundred million negotiation in London...Now I hope you will be my successor and you must attend to it immediately and persistently..." It has long been speculated that the job opportunity and Tyler's assistance to the government were linked, and crucial to the successful outcome of the Alabama Claims Commission.

Dodgson, author, mathematician, and photographer, whose writing meant a great deal to him; writing was the main course by which he could do something for others, to fulfil a deep religious desire to contribute something to humanity—it was his offering to God. After resigning his mathematical lectureship in 1881, at the age of forty-nine (he retained his studentship and resident privileges at Christ Church to the end), he devoted himself primarily to his writing. Often standing at his upright desk (he calculated that he could stand and write for ten hours a day), he turned out a myriad of works. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was followed in late 1871 by its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, and in 1876 by that longest and most revered nonsense poem in English, The Hunting of the Snark.
