        Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There.

      Lee and Shepard, Boston / Lee, Shepard, and Dillingham, New York 1872 - First American edition ('wade' for 'wabe' on p. 21). Professionally rebacked with original backstrip laid down (some loss from edges), new end sheets. Boards lightly rubbed and soiled, pencil name and year ('R.P. Blake 1880') on front flyleaf, a number of illustrations colored with pencil by a young reader, some quite nicely done. x, [1]-224 pp. 8vo. The sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, with fifty illustrations by John Tenniel. This first American edition was released with both red and green cloth (no priority) in the same year as the Macmillan edition printed in London, and contains the same typo in the Jabberwocky's poem. Our research indicates that the U.S. edition appears less frequently both in the trade and at auction than its British equivalent. Carroll's books about Alice are among the most collected works in modern literature, and have both inspired a number of animated and live actions films (most recently those directed by Tim Burton and featuring Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, and Mia Wasikowska as Alice), as well as other adaptations.

        Roughing It

      Hartford: American Publishing Co, 1872. 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, first state.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 1, 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 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 corrected 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; page ends renewed, corners bumped, former owner's name on front end paper dated March 27, 1872. Over all a very good copy.

        Ett år i stilla hafvet reseminnen från Patagonien, Chili, Peru, Californien, Britiska Columbia och Oceanien...

      Stockholm: Lith. Art. Anstalt, 1872. Quarto, with 12 tinted lithographic plates; a very good copy in original decorated boards. Scarce and finely illustrated voyage account, including handsome lithographed portraits of the Hawaiian monarchs Kamehameha the Fourth and Kamehameha the Fifth. The author, Adolf Ekelöf, was a young Swedish lieutenant who sailed on the English frigate Zealous to the Pacific in 1867. In addition to descriptions of California and British Columbia, this book is particularly interesting for its Pacific material, with significant entries on Hawaii, Tahiti, and other South Sea Islands. Unusually, Ekelof provides both the music and words to an Hawaiian Folk Hymn and a Tahitian National Melody.The lithographic plates are well rendered - some are clearly produced from portrait photographs while others are based on marine and landscape sketches. Of the twelve plates, seven are of Hawaiian and Tahitian subjects. In addition to the plate of the Hawaiian monarchs mentioned above, the book includes portraits of Queen Pomare of Tahiti and a coastal scene at Waikiki. Backstrip and endpapers renewed.

Fine copy. ----Norman 494; Garrison-Morton 2483. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, very rare. "Cohn's three papers, published in the journal that he founded and edited, are among the seminal works of bacteriology. The first paper (part I), originally published in 1872, effectively initiated the science: it contained Cohn's new system of bacteria classification, in which he distinguished four groups of bacteria based on their constancy of external form and linked this constancy to certain physiological phenomena. The second paper (part II) announced Cohn's discovery of thermoresistant spores produced by certain bacteria, which could survive even prolonged intense heat in a sealed container; this discovery explained what had long been a puzzling anomaly, and dealt a convincing blow to the doctrine of spontaneous generation." (Norman 494). A third part was published in 1876. Near Fine.

        A History of Greece; from the Earliest Period to the Close of the Generation Contemporary with Alexander the Great.

      London: John Murray, 1872. Ten volumes, octavo, folding maps and illustrations; a fine set in contemporary polished half calf, marbled sides and edges, spines decorated in gilt in compartments. 'Although as biased as Macaulay's History of England and less scholarly than Mommsen's Roman History, Grote's History of Greece can be bracketed with these two works. Like them, it was received with universal acclamation, was translated into French and German, shaped the European conception of its subject-matter throughout the nineteenth century, and still merits respect as a monument of industrious Victorian scholarship' (Printing and the Mind of Man 321).

'This book' Anderson writes in the preface, 'has been written for learners, not for the learned! It has not been my object to extend the boundaries of our present system of photography, by excursion into debatable ground, but to present that which is generally admitted in a form easily comprehended. By this, however, I do not wish to convey the idea that my book is unscientific in its method; certainly not. I mean merely, that I have striven to avoid encumbering the work with the many abstruse and still unsolved questions which environ the subject'.

        Autograph letter signed "Fr. Luetke", to Russian Privy councillor Von Adelung.

      St. Petersburg: 22 October, 1872. Manuscript in ink on paper, single leaf folded to form four pages, 210 x 130 mm. An interesting and rare private letter from the explorer Count Fyodor Petrovich Lütke.Lütke, who started his career in the Imperial Russian Navy in 1813, was a member of Golovnin's voyage on the Kamchatka (1817-19). Subsequently he himself led (1821-24) the expedition to explore the coastline of Novaya Zemlya, the White Sea, and the eastern parts of the Barents Sea. From 1826 to 1829 he commanded the last great Russian scientific voyage to the Northwest coast of America: sailing to the Pacific on the Senyavin via Cape Horn, they reached Sitka in 1827 and spent over a month there. They continued north to Unalaska and the Aleutian Islands, going as far north as St Matthew Island and the Bering Sea, and surveying the coast of the Alaskan Peninsula as far as Kvichak Bay. Islands in the Caroline group of Micronesia were explored during the winter of 1828, and they visited Guam, the Philippines, and St Helena Island in the south Atlantic before returning to Kronstadt in September 1829.The printed account of his voyage on the Senyavin is one of the rarest Pacific voyages today, and was rare even in the nineteenth century (the bibliographer Sabin could only explain this by pointing out that the small edition is said to have been almost entirely bought up within Russia, unlike other voyage publications of the period which reached a much wider audience).Lütke became an influential member of the Russian Geographic Society, chairman of the Naval Scientific Committee, commander-in-chief and military governor of the ports of Reval and later Kronstadt, and a member of the Russian State Council. In 1873, the Geographical Society introduced the Lütke gold medal. He is commemorated by many placenames, including a cape, a peninsula, a mountain and a bay in Novaya Zemlya, as well as a group of islands of the Franz Josef Land, Baydaratskaya Bay, and Nordenskiöld Archipelago. A strait between Kamchatka and Karaginsky Island, as well as a Russian icebreaker were also named after him.In this letter to the Russian privy councillor von Adelung, Lütke discusses the financial support of his friend's niece. Lütke gives advice on how this might be accomplished with the help of prominent members of St. Petersburg society including the Secretary of the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences, the mathematician Paul Heinrich Fuss, past and present Ministers of Culture Counts Uwarov and Tolstoy, as well as Tsarina Olga Nicolajevna. Fine condition.

        Voyage autour du monde... Australie ... Java, Siam, Canton... Pékin, Yeddo. San Francisco.

      Paris: Henri Plon, 1870-, 1872. Three volumes, octavo, in total 7 folding maps & 38 plates engraved after photographs (5 folding); contemporary quarter green morocco. A very good early mixed set of this extremely popular account of the author's voyage around the world.This popular and well-written account of a long circumnavigation was written by the Marquis de Beauvoir. He arrived in Melbourne in 1866, and travelled extensively in Australia, trekking overland through the eastern states and Van Diemen's Land, and going the entire length of the east coast, heading for Malaya by way of the Great Barrier Reef and Torres Strait. He includes particularly good material on the Victorian goldfields, especially around Ballarat and Bendigo, but there is also a lively account of Melbourne, some thoughtful comments on the Australian aborigines he met in the bush, and a lengthy digression on the Burke and Wills expedition.The good maps are after Erhard and Vuillemin, while the many illustrations include views in Australia and California, with several depictions of Australian aborigines, including "King" Tatambo and his daughter.Fourth edition of volumes I and II, first edition of volume III. The work was begun in 1869. Ferguson concentrates on the Australie volume, and lists copies of the fourth edition of this part in the Mitchell Library and the National Library of Australia. A very good set.

        North America - West Coast. Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Channels between the Continent and Vancouver Id. Showing the Boundary Line between British and American Possessions. From the Admiralty Surveys by Captains H. Kellett, R.N. 1847, and G.H. Richards, R.N. 1858-62.

      London. British Admiralty. 1872. Map, folding as issued, 28 3/4 x 44 on sheet 31 1/2 x 45 1/2 inches, outline handcolor to mark the boundary line. Very short separations at some of the fold intersections (with tiny amount of paper loss at one intersection), split at the end of one fold, light toning along fold lines, generally very good condition. An extremely detailed British map "prepared at the Admiralty 1st Nov 1872 under the Superintendence of Rear Admiral G.H. Richards, C.B. F.R.S. Hydrographer" with the boundary between the United States and Canada marked in color as it wends through the maze of the San Juan Islands and Vancouver Island. This map has the printed annotation "Chart referred to in the protocol of the undersigned of this date" with the signatures of Edward Thornton, James Prevost and Hamilton Fish and "Washington, March 10, 1873." It would appear that this is a contemporary copy of the map reflecting the abitral award of the San Juan Archipelago which was agreed in 1873. Detail includes soundings, physical features etc. An interesting and unusual map of this beautiful area.

        The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection... Sixth edition (Eleventh Thousand), with Additions & Corrections.

      London: John Murray, 1872. 6th Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (182 x 117 mm). xxi [1], 458 pp. Includes half-title and one folding lithographed plate facing p.91. Original publisher's green cloth, gilt spine, lettering, embossed border at covers (inner hinges partly cracked, slight fraying of spine ends, very light rubbing of extremities). Owner's signature to upper blank margin of title, occasional scattered spotting (mostly to first and last leaves), otherwise clean and unmarked. All in all a fine copy. ----THE VERY RARE FIRST PRINTING OF THE SIXTH EDITION. "The sixth edition, which is usually regarded as the last, appeared in February 1872. Murray's accounts show that 3,000 copies were printed, but this total presumably included both those with eleventh thousand on the title page and those with twelfth, the latter being notably less common. It is again extensively revised and contains a new chapter, VII. This was inserted to confute the views of the Roman Catholic biologist St George Mivart. The edition was aimed at a wider public and printed in smaller type, the volume shorter again and giving the general impression of a cheap edition, which at 7s. 6d. it was. The title changes to The origin of species, and a glossary, compiled by W. S. Dallas, appears. It is in this edition that the word 'evolution' occurs for the first time. It had been used in the first edition of The descent of man in the previous year, but not before in this work. 'Evolved' had been the last word of the text in all previous editions, but 'evolution' had been omitted, perhaps to avoid confusion with the use of the word by Herbert Spencer or with its more particular embryological meaning. The word had however been used in its transformist sense by Lyell as early as 1832 (Principles of geology, Vol. II, p. 11). In this edition it occurs twice on page 201 and three times on page 424." (John van Wyhe, ed. 2002-. The Complete Work of Charles Darwin Online). Very Good.
