[Dunmore, John L. or CRITCHERSON, George]
[London]: c.1872. Albumen print measuring 11-5/8 x 16-1/4 in (295 x 412 mm). A rare survival. This image appears in William Bradford's fabled book of photographs Arctic Regions. It was taken by either Dunmore or Critcherson, the two professional photographers from Boston who accompanied Bradford on his 1869 expedition to the Arctic on the steamship Panther. It was probably taken at Upernavik, a settlement on an island off Greenland's west coast, or Godhavn. Arctic Regions included 141 albumen prints in addition to Bradford's account of the voyage. The title of the photograph here varies from the printed caption in the book, where it reads: "Plate Number: 116 Esquimaux igloe or winter hut, made of turf and stones. The entrance is to the left through a door which is about three and a half feet high. The length of the passage is about twelve or fifteen feet, and at the farther end is another door, through which one almost has to crawl on his hands and knees. After passing through there is then room to stand erect but one is forced to leave very soon owing to the bad air." This photograph is slightly larger than the one in the book, which is 277 x 365mm. Furthermore, the image in the book is cropped closer on the right and left margins. The New York Public Library has a folio of 26 images of near identicle size mounted on card. The portfolio was donated to the library in 1892 as part of the Robert Stuart Collection. According to Horch, originally all of these images were captioned in manuscript, though were later remounted with typed captions as "the original ink-written captio … [Click Below for Full Description]

(NAVAL) Calhoun, George A
Various places: December 24, 1871 to September 4, 1872. With 5 manuscript maps (one large folding), 7 albumen photographs, and numerous ink views. 359, [36] pp in purple brown ink. Signed on several dozen pages as examined by Captain Richard Worsam Meade and signed by Calhoun in several places. Folio (12 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches). South Pacific cruise and the beginning of diplomacy with Samoa. An outstanding, extensively illustrated logbook of the diplomatic and research expedition undertaken by the U.S.S. Narragansett to the South Pacific in 1870-73. Kept by midshipman George A. Calhoun (1849-1897), the logbook covers the period December 1871-September 1872, during which time the Narragansett visited several island groups in the South Pacific, including the Hawaiian, Samoan, Phoenix, Marshall, and other island chains. In addition to providing crucial surveying information, the expedition marked the beginning of diplomatic negotiations between Samoa and neighboring island chains and the three great foreign powers competing for influence in the region-- the United States, Germany, and Great Britain. The logbook also records an encounter with the notorious pirate "Bully" Hayes. The Narragansett originally set out from Sandy Hook, New York on March 21, 1871 and completed its journey when it arrived in Panama on April 2, 1873. It was commanded by Richard Worsam Meade III, who signs and annotates the log in several places "examined and approved," adding at the end: "This journal has been excellently kept in every respect and I commend Mid[shipma]n Calhoun very highly. Richard W. Meade … [Click Below for Full Description]

Three manuscripts (9 pp.), pen and ink on paper, docketing on verso; One Document (1 p.) partially printed and accomplished, docketing on verso; Three documents (16 pp.), docketing on verso. Various sizes. VICTIM OF A FRENCH PRIVATEER. This is a fascinating collection chronicling an episode of the "Quasi-War" between the US and France. The Barque 'Mary" which hailed out of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, was attacked and boarded off the coast of Savannah, Georgia. An article in "The Balance and Columbian Repository, No. 28, Vol. 14, July 9, 1805," reported the harrowing events as told by the ship's Master, William Balch, "...our crew were ordered on board the privateer, and threatened with flogging from the captain down to the boy. One of the hands was brought to the gun, with a rope around his neck... The Captain was also threatened, and they were on the point of lashing his hands when the boat came alongside with the money....they robbed us of...almost every thing they could lay their hands on and whatever they could not take away they destroyed...leaving scarce enough for our subsistence." Documents include: 1. Memorial Petition of the heirs of ship owner Edward Cutts and Ship's Master, George Balch, to the "Honorable Board of Commissioners appointed under the act of congress...," notarized and dated 3rd day of January, 1833, detailing the attack on the Mary and an account of money and cargo stolen. It reads in part: "That on the close of the same day of said vessel's departure from Jamaica... a small sail appeared to the eastward which proved to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Exemplaire bien complet du catalogue du libraire Murray en fin de volume. « « L'Expression des émotions chez l'homme et les animaux » qu'au début Darwin avait conçu comme un chapitre de la « Descendance de l'homme », pour devenir ensuite une œuvre d'importance majeure, est étroitement liée à celle-ci » (G. A. Gurev). One of the first books to feature printed photographs, “The Expression of the Emotions in Man and animals” discussed the evolution of human psychology and its continuity with the behavior of animals. The book proved very popular and Darwin was impressed by the general assent with which his views had been received. His conclusion was that “Man with all his noble qualities, with his god-like intellect which has penetrated into the movements and constitution of the solar system-with all these exalted powers- Man still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin”.

He later served in Yemen and Uganda and wrote a number of books on the region, including Zanzibar: Its History and Its People (1931). Burton, during his 1857-9 expedition to East Africa to locate the source of the Nile, found himself delayed in Zanzibar for close to half a year at an important juncture in the history of the island: Zanzibar had become a separate sultanate in 1856 following the death of Sa'id bin Sultan, Sultan of Muscat and Oman, and was now ruled as a distinct entity by his sixth son, Majid bin Sa'id, the first Sultan of Zanzibar.

Raimund Von Stillfried-Ratenicz
[Yokohama: 1872. Size varies slightly, 9-1/2" x 12" (25 x 30 cm) to 8-1/2" x 11" (21.8 x 28 cm), on uniform mounts 11-1/2" x 15" (32 x 38.2 cm), apparently removed from an album; each with a detailed German caption in ink on the mount; clean throughout, with rich tones, overall in fine condition. Baron Raimund von Stillfried-Ratenicz (1839-1911) was an Austrian painter, diplomat, world traveler, and a photographer of the first rank. With the help of his friend the photographer Felix Beato (ca. 1835 - ca. 1907), Stillfried opened for business in 1871. "In May 1872 Stillfried embarked on a six-weeks' tour of Kobe and Nagasaki in order to extend the geographical boundaries of his photographic portfolio. This included a visit to the closed city of Kyoto" (Bennett). A peripatetic man, Stillfied traveled to his native Austria in 1873, and to China in 1875 and again in 1876. Also in 1876 Stillfried was joined in the business by Hermann Andersen, and henceforth the firm was known as Messrs. Stillfried and Andersen. "The year 1877 started disastrously when a fire destroyed Stillfried's studio. Fortunately most if not all the negatives were rescued, but Stillfried's cameras and photographic apparatus were gone. One assumes that some insurance recovery was made, but it is a measure of how successful Stillfried's business had been that within a couple of weeks the local press was reporting that on January 23 Stillfried and Anderson had acquired Felix Beato's photographic business. .. From this time on. .. Stillfried and Andersen would freely print from Beato's negatives. .. and mix the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Carroll, Lewis
London: Macmillan & Co, 1872. First edition. Very Good. A Very Good copy with the cloth worn at the corners and the spine ends. All edges brightly gilt. Internally quite nice, with the misprint "wade" for "wabe" on p. 21. Carroll's fantastical sequel to the classic Alice Adventures in Wonderland. Published in 1871, the book follows Alice as she enters a strange alternative world by stepping through a magical mirror. She soon encounters the nonsense poem "Jabberwocky", which Martin Gardner called "...the greatest of all nonsense poems in English", and later meets the famed Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was a sensation when it was first published, and Through The Looking Glass received favorable reviews as well. The novel has been adapted into film, television, and stage. Carroll scholar Florence Becker Lennon calls the novel a "masterpiece - only a shade less than Wonderland" (Lennon, "Escape Through the Looking-Glass," 1971; pp 66-79). Very Good.

Rossetti, Dante Gabriel
3pp. Trowan Farm, Crieff, 10 Sept., 1872. A significant, unpublished letter, written by Rossetti to J. Aldam Heaton, one of Rossetti's most important patrons, discussing the painting "Silence," and requesting six large proofs of photos of the work. "The drawing was, as you know, sold during my absence, and, (as I may now say) on a rather hasty affirmative interpretation of what I said about it.” He goes on to express a wish to possibly exchange it for 2 others if this suited the recipient of the letter. He ends the letter by telling Heaton, when he knows what the photographer would charge, that he will pay him. Rossetti, in a letter to his brother William on Sept. 6, had bemoaned the selling of “Silence, that was let go by an art dealer (Murray Marks), evidently with WIlliam's blessings, but without notifying Gabriel. He states in the Sept. 6 letter, “iI is worth more than I got,” and states that a photo should have been taken, and Heaton should be willing to provide one. Written at a time of great personal crisis, this letter refers to one of Rossetti's finer works depicting Jane Morris, the face of “Silence.”"Silence" is currently in the Brooklyn Museum, the Gift of Luke Vincent Lockwood. Last page mounted to card sheet.

A Pilgrimage - Gustave Dore and Blanchard Jerrold 1872 First English Edition Please have a detailed look at the photographs to satisfy yourself on condition and appearance London. A Pilgrimage.Dore, Gustave and Blanchard Jerrold. London: Grant & Co., 1872. Folio, original brown gilt-stamped and lettered morocco, backstrip richly gilt. [xiv], xii, 191 pp. 52 full-page plates, each with captioned tissue guard; and 146 wood-engraved text illustrations and pictorial initials. First English edition of this great work, preceding the first French edition (with its briefer, less informed text) by four years. The book was conceived in 1868 by Jerrold, an experienced journalist; and author and artist prowled every corner of the metropolis, sometimes accompanied by plainclothes police. "The theme of this book had been anticipated by Matthew Arnold three years earlier when he wrote of 'London, with its unutterable external hideousness, and with its internal canker of publicé egestas, privatim opulentia - to use the words which Sallust puts into Cato's mouth about Rome, -unequaled in the world' (Culture and Anarchy, London, 1869, p. 31). Doré's devastating realization of the contrast of wealth and poverty in a modern metropolis makes London one of the great illustrated books of the world. The English edition antedates the French by four years (and has 6 more plates), and indeed it is a handsomer book, except for the few copies of the French edition printed on papier de Chine." - Ray.

Overall, a completely unsophisticated and attractive copy of this classic work of children's literature. Through the Looking Glass is Lewis Carroll's sequel to his popular children's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). In this story, which represents the child protagonist's journey from adolescence to adulthood, Alice ventures into a fantasy world through the mirror above her fireplace. Just as Alice relies on the imagery of playing cards, Through the Looking Glass is laden with chess imagery; Alice steps into the fantasy world as a white pawn on a giant chess board. While making her way to be crowned queen, she runs into many of Carroll's beloved characters, including Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Walrus and the Carpenter, and the Red Queen. Additionally, this text employs a mirror motif, with many backward-printed texts and scenarios that appear to be the reverse of scenes from Alice.
