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

      Prague: Jan Otto, 1872. Small octavos (17.5 × 11 cm). Original printed wrappers with engraved vignette; 80 and 64 pp. respectively. Very good copies. Two pamphlets, containing historical lectures about the American Revolution and George Washington, respectively, and both held in the "Osvěta" ("Enlightenment") circle in Prague. Tůma's talks were later published as part of this series of popular educational booklets. The author, the journalist and writer Karel Tůma (1843-1917) was a noted political activist who fought for numerous liberal causes. In 1868 he was sentenced to jail for his political editorials. In the present pamphlet, too, his impassioned account of Washington's struggle is closely related to the Czechs' love for freedom, and the dear memory of famous Czech leaders such as Jan Hus, Jiri Žižka, and Jan Amos Komenský. 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 "Osvěta 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.

        La Descendance de l'Homme et la Sélection Sexuelle. [i.e. English: "Descent of Man", Translated by J. J. Moulinié ]. 2 vols.

      Paris, C. Reinwald et Cie, 1872-1873. 8vo. 2 volumes uncut in publisher's original green full cloth with gilt lettering and ornamentation to spines and embossed front and back boards. A stamp to title-pages and very light wear to extremities, internally very fine, clean and fresh. XV, (1), 452, 24 [advertisements] pp.; (8), 494, (2) pp. ¶ First French translation of Darwin's 'Descent of Man'. Whereas "Origin of Species" established Darwinism as a turning point in nineteenth-century biology "The Descent of Man" helped built a bridge between biology, the social sciences, and the humanities and made Darwinism a broad system of research designs, theoretical principles, and philosophical outlook."Darwin wrote, in the preface to the second edition, of 'the fiery ordeal through which this book has passed'. He had avoided the logical outcome of the general theory of evolution, bringing man into the scheme, for twelve years, and in fact it had, by that time, been so much accepted that the clamour of the opposition was not strident. He had also been preceded in 1863 by Huxley's Man's place in nature. The book, in its first edition, contains two parts, the descent of man itself, and selection in relation to sex. The word 'evolution' occurs, for the first time in any of Darwin's works, on page 2 of the first volume of the first edition, that is to say before its appearance in the sixth edition of The origin of species in the following year." (Freeman).It was translated into Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian and Swedish in Darwin's lifetime and into ten further languages since.Freeman 1058

With tipped-in albumen photograph portrait, 6 maps (4 folding), 25 woodengraved illustrations and 28 woodengraved plates. XXIII,736; 8 pp.First edition. - The quest to recover David Livingstone is one of the most famous travel adventures in history. After finding Livingstone in Ujiji Stanley failed to receive the welcome he expected. Resentful that an unknown American adventurer had found Livingstone where others had failed, many refused to believe Stanley's story and it was only when Livingstone's family produced unimpeachable evidence that Stanley had indeed found the missionary that attitudes began to change. Queen Victoria received Stanley at Baltimoral, and the Royal Geographical Society originally suspicious of his claims, awarded him its gold medal. Stanley's narrative, How I found Livingstone, published later that year, became an inmediate bestseller (Howgego IV, p.873). Dr. Livingstone, I presume ? [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE KU-KLUX CONSPIRACY

      Washington, D.C.: Government Printing Office, 1872. Thirteen volumes, pagination and pertinent details provided in the listing below. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Some labels chipped, some bindings tender or separated with detached leaves, especially the first three volumes, otherwise occasional loose leaves throughout. Small ink library stamp to titlepages, minor foxing, some tanning and brittleness. Overall good. The complete thirteen-volume set of government reports, trial accounts, and circuit court decisions detailing the Congressional investigation of the Ku-Klux Klan in the American South in the early 1870s. Specifically, this inquiry involved Klan activities in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida. The first Klan was formed in the aftermath of the Civil War, mainly led by ex-Confederate Army officers, to actively oppose by violence Reconstruction and the implementation of the 14th Amendment. At the time, the Klan was actively trying to overthrow the legitimate state governments in the south, as a reaction against the Reconstructionists. The Federal government under President Grant took notice and set its sights on the Klan. This examination into their activities ultimately led to the dismantling of the organization for a few generations, before their official revival in 1915, largely the result of the original Klan's favorable depiction in D.W. Griffith's epic silent film, THE BIRTH OF A NATION. A rare work complete. A complete list of the imprints is as follows: 1) INDEX TO THE REPORTS OF THE COMMITTEES OF THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES, FOR THE SECOND SESSION OF THE FORTY- SECOND CONGRESS. xviii,[2],632pp. 2) TESTIMONY TAKEN BY THE JOINT SELECT COMMITTEE TO INQUIRE INTO THE CONDITION OF AFFAIRS IN THE LATE INSURRECTIONARY STATES.

        Kapital. Kritika politicheskoj ekonomii. Perevod c nmetskago. Tom pervoej. Kniga I. Protschess proizvodstva Kapitala.

      St. Petersburg, N. P. Poliakov, 1872. - 8vo. (2), XIII, (3), 678 pp. Printed on very thick, heavy, vellum-like paper. Bound in a splendid, contemporary, Russian full diced calf binding with blindstamped and darker coloured rectangular "frames" to boards and to compartments of spine. Gilt title to spine. First edition, first issue in Russian, the first translation of "Das Kapital" into any language: a truly magnificent copy of an otherwise unknown deluxe edition printed on special, very heavy paper, making it about 30% thicker than the usual first edition copies. - Although Marx's other works were banned in Russia, the Tsarist censors passed "Das Kapital" as harmless on account of its length and complexity, and the book - rather unexpectedly - became an immediate success with the Russian intelligentsia in search of a theoretical model for industrializing their economically backward country. The press-run of 3000 copies was soon exhausted, and the ensuing ban on the book, when the board of censorship realized their error, prohibited the planned second edition (which was subsequently brought out in New York). The appearance on the market of any first edition has therefore become a great rarity. No mention of a deluxe edition is made at all in the vast bibliographical literature on "Das Kapital". While one could only speculate on the reason for preparing such a special edition, its number must have been extremely small, likely limited to no more than a handful of copies for a small, exclusive group - possibly to be sought among the young revolutionary intellectuals who had laboured for years to make possible the Russian translation, which soon was going to have such a profound effect on world history. This is the only such copy we have been able to locate. - A bit of wear to extremities and traces of faint dampstaining to boards. Inner front hinge slightly weak; the first few leaves with faint traces of slight dampstaining. Very light occasional brownspotting, otherwise fresh and crisp. Old Russian newspaper-clippings to endpapers. A uniquely produced specimen of one of the most influential books ever published. Marx-Engels Erstdrucke 33. Cf. PMM 359.

For energy, force, superabundance, originality, sparkle, and gloomy grandeur, I know only one equal to his— that of Tintoretto” (Ray, 327-29). “By 1872, Doré was the most popular artist in England, illustrator or painter. This work was eagerly awaited by the English public, having been postponed by the Franco-Prussian War The idea was to match Doré’s artistic genius with an in-depth view of all segments of London society— the rich and the poor, the common people at work and play, famous sites and slums, nobility and criminals, Many were the days and nights that Doré went in disguise, with undercover policemen for protection, to see parts of London not listed in any tour guide The result was a book often hailed as the greatest visual expression of the social class struggle ever published” (Malan, 127). “The other day,” once wrote Vincent van Gogh, “I saw a complete set of Doré’s pictures of London. I tell you it is superb, and noble in sentiment.” Malan, 281. Rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Raven [Cover Title]: Carrier's Address! of the The Valley Echo. January 1, 1873

      [Greencastle, Pennsylvania: The Valley Echo, 1872. Near Fine. Octavo. Sewn mustard yellow printed wrappers. 7pp., ads on both inside wraps. Illustrated with four engravings by David Scattergood. Very good with a crease at the corners, a few ink stains, and some wear to the yapped edges. A New Year's Day carrier's address issued by The Valley Echo of Greencastle, Pennsylvania. The address, published as a pamphlet, reproduces four Scattergood engravings and a page showing The Raven put to music, which was first published by P.P. Hayes in Philadelphia in 1865. Several reprints of this edition followed, but this copy appears to be one of only a handful of similarly published carrier's addresses issued in 1873 at six different newspapers in Pennsylvania, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri. The lack of publishing information makes us suspect the sheets were distributed serially with each newspaper printing their own wrappers containing local advertisements. Each of these carrier addresses is rare. OCLC locates three copies of this The Valley Echo edition.

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

      London: MacMillan and Co., 1872. Octavo, two volumes, uniformly bound by Bayntun Riviere in full crushed red morocco, all edges gilt, gilt tooling to the front and rear panels, emblematic gilt spine compartments, raised bands, gilt turn-ins, inlaid panel of black, white, green, purple, and brown of Father William on the cover of Alice in Wonderland, inlaid figure of the Mad Hatter on front cover of Through the Looking Glass. Marbled endpapers, original cloth bindings tipped in to rear of each volume. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is an early printing. Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There is a first edition, first issue with 'wade' for 'wabe' on page 21. Illustrated by John Tenniel, text illustrated. A stunning set. 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).

        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

      Prague: Jan Otto, 1872. Small octavos (17.5 × 11 cm). Original printed wrappers with engraved vignette; 80 and 64 pp. respectively. Very good copies. Two pamphlets, containing historical lectures about the American Revolution and George Washington, respectively, and both held in the "Osv?ta" ("Enlightenment") circle in Prague. T?ma's talks were later published as part of this series of popular educational booklets. The author, the journalist and writer Karel T?ma (1843-1917) was a noted political activist who fought for numerous liberal causes. In 1868 he was sentenced to jail for his political editorials. In the present pamphlet, too, his impassioned account of Washington's struggle is closely related to the Czechs' love for freedom, and the dear memory of famous Czech leaders such as Jan Hus, Jiri ?i?ka, and Jan Amos Komenský. 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.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland; [together with:] Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1866 & 1872 - 2 works, octavo. Original red cloth, Alice in Wonderland rebacked with original spine laid-down, spines lettered in gilt, triple gilt rules to covers, gilt roundels with "Alice" motifs to covers, dark green endpapers, all edges gilt. Housed in individual custom red chemises, together in a custom red morocco pull-off case. Bookseller's ticket to front pastedowns, binder's ticket to rear pastedowns. Alice in Wonderland: somewhat inexpertly repaired, cloth slightly marked and bubbled, hinges repaired, small repair to foot of p. 5, occasional faint spot of foxing. Looking-Glass: an excellent copy in unusually bright cloth, hinges cracked but holding, text block sound. Frontispieces and 90 illustrations by John Tenniel. First editions. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is the first published edition: the book was originally printed in Oxford at the Clarendon Press in June 1865, but was suppressed when Dodgson heard that the book's illustrator was dissatisfied with the quality of the printing. He recalled the few pre-publication copies he had sent out to his friends and donated them to hospitals, where most perished. Only 23 of those original "1865 Alices" are now extant, mostly in institutional holdings, thus creating one of the most famous black tulips of book collecting. The book was entirely reset by Richard Clay for this authorized Macmillan edition which, although dated 1866, was in fact ready by November 1865, in time for the Christmas market, and was published in an edition of 4,000 copies. Likewise, Through the Looking-Glass was published for the Christmas market and bears the following year's date in its imprint. It was actually published in December 1871, in an edition of 9,000 copies. The set bears the bookplates of Samuel Putnam Avery (1822–1904), New York art dealer, and book collector Herbert Ten Broeck Jacquelin, together with a letter laid in from E. P. Dutton & Co. to Jacquelin, dated 11 November 1919 and offering the copies for sale. Williams–Madan–Green–Crutch 46 & Crutch 84. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A Cruise in the "Eothen". 1872.

      London: Printed fro Private Circulation,, 1872. Octavo. Original green cloth, bevelled boards, title gilt to the spine, gilt ship portrait block of the Eothen to the front board with decoration in black above and below, decoration repeated on the lower board, all edges gilt. Mounted photographic portrait frontispiece and 31 other similar plates, one with three mounted portraits, another with four, the rest with single images views and "types" including a rather dubious "Sioux Indian", one single-tint lithographic plate, folding track chart. Slightly rubbed, corners bumped, head and tail of spine chipping, hinges starting, consequently a little shaken, but overall very good. First and only edition, uncommon, just 3 locations on Copac - BL, NMM, and Oxford - OCLC adds around a dozen more. This copy inscribed on the half title in Lady Brassey's inimitably loose hand; "Frau [?]Cootes from Annie Brassey, Jan[uar]y 1873". Account of the Brassey's second voyage which encouraged them to take on their first circumnavigation in the Sunbeam. "Lady Brassey joined her husband on board the steam auxiliary barkentine Eothen in Quebec and sailed in her to Chesapeake Bay. Because the 345-ton yacht was too small for a comfortable crossing of the Atlantic, the family returned to England by liner. Essentially a travelogue, but extremely well written" (Toy)`. Takes in Quebec, Montreal, Niagara, Halifax, New York and Washington. Robinson is inevitably somewhat dismissive; "There is no doubt that Annie Brassey admired such contemporaries as Isabella Bird and Marianne north, but she probably thought their exertions a little de trop. The world we see through her eyes is better prepared than theirs, and more distant and refined, since she had a portable England to return to every night" (Wayward Women, p.204). Nonetheless, luxury travel remains travel and Lady Brassey's books evoke the era every bit as well as those of her more adventurous woman travellers.
