        O boji národa amerického za samostatnost [About the American people's struggle for independence]. WITH: O Ji?ím Washingtonu, zakladateli svobody Americké [About George Washington, the founder of American freedom]. Series title: Osv?ta lidu. Bibliotéka prostonárodních p?edná?ek [Education of the people. A library of popular lectures], vols. 1 and 6

      Jan Otto, Prague 1872 - Small octavo (17.5 × 11 cm). Original printed wrappers with engraved vignette; 80 pp. An uncut and unopened copy, very good or better. Two pamphlets, containing historical lectures about the American Revolution and George Washington, respectively, and both held in the "Osv?ta" ("Enlightenment") circle in Prague. The text of T?ma's talks was published as part of a series of popular educational booklets. The author, the journalist and writer Karel T?ma (1843-1917) was a noted political activist fighting for numerous liberal causes. In 1868 he was sentenced to jail for his political editorials. Here, too, his impassioned account of Washington's struggle is connected with the Czech love for freedom, and the memory of famous Czech leaders such as Jan Hus, Jiri Zizka, and Jan Amos Komensky. The book is also one of the earliest Czech accounts of Washington's life. The rear wrappers of both volumes feature a description of the progressive aims of the "Osv?ta lidu" series. Outside of the Czech Republic, KVK and OCLC show copies of the first volume at the Austrian National Library, British Library, Herder-Institut, Texas A&M, Utah and Yale; the Washington biography is only held by the Czech National Library.

Mexico: Tip. de la v. e Hijos de Marguia, 1872. 33, [1] pp. Octavo (10-1/2" x 7"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in original printed wrappers. Covers darkened, light soiling and minor edgewear, small ink spot on front wrapper. Light browning, some chipping and foxing, creasing to corners of most leaves. Contemporary annotations to several leaves and two sheets of laid-in notes in Spanish and English. Rare. * Text of the original concession, issued to Antonio D. Richards, Santiago Smith, and Jose Brennan, facing the altered concession issued to General W. S. Rosecrans. "In 1868 President Johnson appointed Rosecrans to be Minister to Mexico. Five months later, President Grant terminated the appointment. His brief diplomatic career convinced him that a prosperous Mexico would need peace, immigration, and railways, and he applied for a concession to build a narrow-gauge railway and telegraph line from Tampico to the Coast. The record of toil and travel, scheming, waiting on rich men and politicians, and of the final collapse of his Mexican dreams, forms a wearying chapter of the frustrating years from 1869 through 1873. Yet he was almost the first, and perhaps the most important, in a long line of Yankee railroad promoters in Mexico.": Lamers, The Edge of Glory: A Biography of General William S. Rosecrans, U.S.A.

        LES AMOURS PASTORALES DE DAPHNIS ET DE CHLOÉ

      Paris: Alphonse Lemerre, 1872. This is an attractively bound rendition of Longus' charming pastoral novel, a unique combination of decadence and sweet innocence, appearing here in the popular translation of Jacques Amyot (1513-93), first printed in 1559 and always recognized for its graceful style. A rough contemporary of, and certainly the equal in technique to, binders like Trautz, Marius Michel père, Lortic, and Cuzin, the elder Chambolle served his apprenticeship under Hippolyte Duru, and later formed a partnership with him. Duncan & De Bartha says that this collaboration began "at some point" and suggests that the partnership was formed after Chambolle established a premises at 20 rue de Savoie in 1873, but the date of our binding seems to indicate that the two binders had worked together, at least for a period, before that time. Chambolle's son continued the business when his father retired in 1898, and although the firm "showed a cautious recognition of the . . . preoccupation with Art Nouveau," classical work was always the mainstay of the Chambolle bindery. (Duncan & De Bartha) In "Modern Bookbindings," Sarah Prideaux says of her contemporary, "Chambolle most worthily continues the traditions associated with the name of his father. As an interpreter of the past, he has a place apart and almost untouched by the main revolutionary movement that has penetrated nearly every atelier in Paris, and modified, if not overturned, its inherited traditions. To him are confided the classics of former times, which he clothes in the styles appropriate to them, keeping to a simplicity of ornamentation which reveals great taste and feeling for composition." The present binding is not stunning, but it is quite pretty, and the sweet ornithological ornaments are certainly charming.. 154 x 90 mm. (6 1/4 x 3 1/2"). In the 1559 translation of Jacques Amyot, followed by the revised translation of Paul-Louis Courier. QUITE PRETTY DARK GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT, BY CHAMBOLLE-DURU (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with French fillet border, a charming pair of love birds at each corner, raised bands, spine compartments with cornerpieces composed of scrolling vines (and another tiny bird) enclosing a centerpiece featuring another pair of affectionate fowl, elaborate gilt turn-ins with multiple rolls and very dense roll featuring more birds, cornucopia, musical instruments, and much vegetation, marbled endleaves, all edges gilt. With frontispiece portrait of Amyot (in two states) and six etchings by Boilvin after Prud'hon. A Large Paper Copy. With additional title page and a leaf of ads on vellum. One leaf with neatly repaired small paper flaw in margin, one or two tiny rust spots, but A VERY FINE COPY, clean and fresh internally, with very large margins, and THE CHARMING BINDING IN SPARKLING CONDITION. This is an attractively bound rendition of Longus' charming pastoral novel, a unique combination of decadence and sweet innocence, appearing here in the popular translation of Jacques Amyot (1513-93), first printed in 1559 and always recognized for its graceful style.

The other letter on the opposing side of this letter serves as a recommendation for Leicht reading part, ""I can testify to his integrity, zeal and ability in the perfomrance of his duties . . . I regret extremely by his leaving the service which he has so well and faithfully acquitted himself."" Both letters are signed by Gordon. The other two items in the archive are a marriage license dated July 27, 1899 between Charles Tye and Harriet Leicht. This certified copy is dated Dec. 30, 1915. Harriet was Peter's widow. The third item is a list of written extracts from ""Connolly's History of the (Royal Engineer) Royal Sapper and Miners and General Porters' history of the Corps of Royal Engineers. Written on Royal Engineer Horseguard official letterhead with an embossed seal. The excerpts are about the construction of a battery, ""The added work was partly constructed in the day under fire as was also the laying of the platforms - Corporal Peter Leicht promoted to Sergeant (was the principal officer in charge of the huts sent from this country to the Armied; and severely wounded in the assault on the Redan on 8. Sept. 1855) . . . ."" Also mentioned is the Siege of Sebastopal, ""The Carpenters, 16 in number were chosen men under Leitch, the master carpenter of the night attack, who had been daily in the trenches from the end of June. With energy never before surpassed they laid 4 gun platforms in No. 22."" The document goes on to talk about Leitch's wound to the head after a storming part of sappers, the Knights of the Imperial Order of the Legion of Honour of France, and the Victoria Cross."" Colonel Leicht received the Victoria Cross on June 18, 1856 for gallant deeds performed during the eventful siege. The details of his gallantry read, ""when after approaching it with the leading ladders, he formed a Caponniere across the ditch, as well as a ramp, by fearlessly tearing down gabions from the parapet, and placing them, and filling them until he was disabled from wounds."" The Victoria Cross is the highest and most prestigious award for gallantry in the face of the enemy that can be awarded to British and Commonwealth forces. His Victoria Cross is displayed at the Royal Engineers Museum. After the British Victory at The Battle of Alma, the British and French force advanced onto Sebastopol. The Russian Fortress naval base was laid under siege. The bombardment began on October 17th. The Allied Commanders General Lord Raglan and General Francois Canrobert decided to bombard the fortress as they did not posses enough forces to take it by storm. A British naval Squadron under the command of Admiral Sir Edmund Lyons bombarded Sebastopol from the sea. An attempt was made to relieve Sebastpol by the Russians by attacking the British supply port of Balaclava on the 25th October but this attempt failed. Prince Menshikov again tried an attack eleven days later on the Heights of Inkerman but this again was beaten off. A third attempt to dislodge the British force, was made on the 16th of August 1855, at the Chernaya River but failed. Several allied attempts in the spring of 1855 to take Sebastopol by storm failed. Finally on the 8th of September the French commanded by General Aimable Pelissier took Malakhov a fortification at the southern end of Sebastopol. The British under their new commander General Simpson (Lord Raglan had died) attacked and took the Redan, only to lose it again. On the 11th of September the Russian abandoned Sebastopol blowing up the defenses and all shipping in the harbour. This event ended the war. Although the Russian force was still intact and not defeated. Czar Alexanader II after the death of his father on March 2nd 1856 singed the final peace terms at the Congress of Paris on March 30th 1856."

        Actes et paroles 1870 - 1871 - 1872

      Michel Lévy frères 1872 - - Michel Lévy frères, Paris 1872, 11,5x18cm, relié. - Édition originale sur papier courant, il a été tiré 100 exemplaires sur Hollande en grands papiers. Reliure en demi chagrin rouge, dos à quatre fins nerfs sertis de pointillés dorés orné de fleurons dorés et de filet à froid, plats de papier marbré, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, tranches mouchetées, reliure de l'époque signée de Derveaux fils. Rares rousseurs affectant principalement les marges de certains feuillets. Exceptionnel envoi autographe signé de Victor Hugo à son fils François-Victor sur la page de faux-titre : « À mon bien aimé Victor. V. » En 1872, seuls deux des cinq enfants que Victor Hugo a eus avec son épouse Adèle Foucher sont encore en vie : François-Victor, qu'il appelle simplement Victor et sur lequel il reporte son affection, et Adèle, emmurée dans la folie, qui vient d'être internée à son retour de la Barbade. Hugo note alors dans ses carnets : « Il y a tout juste un an, je partais pour Bordeaux avec Charles [son autre fils] qui n'en devait pas revenir vivant. Aujourd'hui je revois Adèle. Que de deuils ! » Mais les tragédies continueront de frapper le vieil écrivain : le « bien-aimé » François-Victor succombera l'année suivante, en 1873, de la tuberculose. François-Victor Hugo est l'auteur d'une monumentale traduction des œuvres complètes de William Shakespeare, la première respectueuse de la langue du dramaturge anglais : « Pour ceux qui, dans Shakespeare, veulent tout Shakespeare, cette traduction manquait », écrira avec émotion Hugo dans la préface. Agréable exemplaire enrichi d'une très émouvante dédicace de Victor Hugo à son fils. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Edition on current paper, he was shot in Holland paper 100 leading copies. Bound in red half shagreen, back with four nerves purposes set with gold dotted decorated with gilded finials and cold fillet, marbled paper plates, guards and contreplats of handmade paper, sprinkled edges, contemporary binding. Touching and exceptional autograph signed by Victor Hugo to his son François Victor on the half-title page: "To my good Victor V. loved." A pale wetting affecting letters of the first name of the dedicatee, rare spots mainly affecting the margins of some leaves. Nice copy enriched with a moving dedication of Victor Hugo to his son.
