        Under the Greenwood Tree. A Rural Painting of the Dutch School. LATER ISSUE OF HARDY'S FIRST BOOK PUBLISHED IN THE US

      Henry Holt, New York, 1873. 8vo., First US Edition [Later Issue]; original pictorial mustard cloth blocked and lettered in black, backstrip lettered in gilt and black, very neatly rebacked with old backstrip laid down, original printed endpapers wholly preserved, covers very lightly age-soiled (but every detail of the blocking bright and clear), corners very lightly bruised without material damage, a remarkably bright, clean copy. HARDY'S FIRST BOOK PUBLISHED IN THE US AND THE SECOND EDITION OF THE WORK OVERALL. Hardy's second novel 'Under the Greenwood Tree' was first published by Tinsley in 1872, one of the 'best press-noticed' books sold by that publisher. Under the terms of Tinsley's new agreement with Holt of New York it was then issued by the latter in their popular 'Leisure House' series in June 1873, the first of Hardy's works to be so issued in the US. His first novel 'Desperate Remedies' (1871) did not appear in the series until March 1874. From the series catalogue present on the front endpapers it is clear that this is a later issue (at least 1881 since the list includes 'A Laodician'). Most volumes in the 'Leisure Hour' series were severally reissued with updated endpapers. This copy has been expertly rebacked. The original, elaborately blocked, backstrip is virtually complete with just a few millimetres missing at extreme head and tail. The original endpapers, which carry a detailed catalogue of the 'Leisure Hour' series catalogue printed in red, are all complete and virtually unmarked. The top edge is mildly dust-soiled but this does not extend to the text, which also shows practically no trace of the usual foxing and spotting. A NOTABLE COPY AND A RARE SURVIVAL. See Purdy, p.8 et seq. NCBEL III 981.

ALS, to Corporal M. W. Van Amber concerning oil wells in Pennsylvania: "Oil on the Brain": Signed letter from 'Libbie M. T.' dated March 4th 1865, Watertown, to a Civil War corporal in Washington DC. The Drake Well, drilled in 1859 along the banks of Oil Creek, Venango County PA, was the first commercial oil well in the country, spawning an oil rush to the area. The writer describes the interest in the Pennsylvania oil in her home town: "I presume you have heard about the oil wells in Pennsylvania. There is a man not far from here that put in one hundred dollars share and then sold the share for one hundred twenty thousand dollars. There is a good many here that has go the Oil on the brain, and I think Father has for he talks of selling out."

I wish you could see it, it is a sight and if I stay here this Winter I will send for you and you shall see what their (sic) is in Oil dom (sic)." In January of 1865 two massive oil strikes by the Frazier and the Twin Wells transformed a quiet western Pennsylvania farm into the largest oil boomtown in American history. Pithole became the home of the first commercial oil well in the US and of the world's first oil pipeline. Oil production hit 6,000 barrels per day and the population swelled to 20,000 by Christmas. The letter, dated July 23rd, 1865 and signed "Gene", describes the astonishing activity in Pithole and the hopes of the writer and other family members to establish a hotel there: "Our house is not quite ready, but we have to take what we can. We could have five hundred (guests) if we could keep them (and) get from ten to twelve Dollars per Week for Board". Gene, writing to his wife, asks her to send letters "direct to G. E.

Its name was changed to the Columbia Farm, a joint stock company called the Columbia Oil Company was formed in 1861, and a young Andrew Carnegie became an early investor in it. The stereocard shows many barrels of oil piled along the shore of a river (probably Oil Creek) awaiting shipping. With the caption: '2800 Shipping Oil - Story Farm'.

Phillips & Co is shown in two locations, including at the Tarr Farm and at the extreme right side of the map.

        Accipiter nisis. (London, c. 1873).

      1873. Hand-coloured lithograph. 380 x 555 mm. Fine image of a Sparrowhawk, from John Gould's monumental "Birds of Great Britain" (London, 1862-1873, 5 vols.). Joseph Wolf (1820-99) "was the first bird artist to understand and use the new freedom of style that lithography allowed [...] He introduced natural settings and a feeling of motion into his paintings. Early training in lithography and art [...] opened the door to Wolf's development into one of the first and finest true bird artists. He breathed life into the stiff 'bird on a perch' portrayals so characteristic of bird art of the day. Wolf liked especially to paint birds of prey and game birds, with their subtle browns and grays" (Cornell University Library). Fine Bird Books 102. Nissen IVB 372. Sauer 23. Wood 365. Zimmer 261.

A beautiful image from John Gould's The Birds of Great Britain: "A magnificent work with life-like portraits of birds of the British Isles" (Wood) Gould's illustrations were all painstakingly coloured by hand, as he states in his Preface: "Many of the public are quite unaware how the colouring of these large plates is accomplished; and not a few believe that they are produced by some mechanical process or by chromo-lithography. This, however, is not the case; every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand." Cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf. Nissen IVB 372; cf. Sauer 23; cf.

        Philadelphia Photographer

      1873 - (PHOTOGRAPHY) WILSON, Edward L., editor. The Philadelphia Photographer. Volume X, January 1873 to December 1873, Nos. 109-120. Philadelphia: Benerman & Wilson, 1873. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter black morocco, raised bands. $1500.Original 12 monthly issues of the premiere 19th-century photography journal, Numbers 109-120 (January""December, 1873), bound in one volume, with 13 original albumen plates mounted on heavy card stock, numerous in-text illustrations, and articles featuring renowned photographers such as William Bell of the Wheeler Expedition and renowned daguerreotype photographer Albert Sands Southworth.Reflecting the nation's growing passion for photography, Philadelphia formed a photographic society in 1864, accompanied by its own publication, an "outstanding independent journal". the Philadelphia Photographer, with Edward L. Wilson as editor. Through the efforts of Wilson this journal achieved an outstanding place in the photographic literature of the times. For many years it was the foremost publication of its kind in this country" (Taft, 205). Each issue is highlighted by a fine mounted frontispiece photograph, showcasing the work of accomplished commercial and landscape photographers, including the first publication in this journal of two striking plates printed in the heliotype process invented by Ernest Edwards. In addition, one issue has as its frontispiece an original albumen portrait of Benjamin French, whose company imported Voigtlander lenses, and another of photochemist Herman Vogel, the German scientist who "discovered that by dipping a plate in a colorant, it became sensitive to the color absorbed," a finding that ultimately led to the production of panchromatic film and "was to have important repercussions for the image itself" (Frizot, 234). The journal contains, as well, numerous articles by Vogel, an account from photographer William Bell, reporting from the Wheeler Expedition in Colorado on "Photography in the Grand Gulch of the Colorado River," and numerous talks given by Albert Sands Southworth at the Fifth Annual Meeting of the National Photographic Association. Southworth, one of the finest daguerreotype photographers of his time, also invented a device permitting the exposure of eight card negatives on a single plate, leading to the innovation of the card photograph, such as that represented in the albumen frontispiece for October (No. 118). The journal additionally features items on printing processes, retouching, developments in cameras, lenses and lighting, and includes the extensive September issue (No. 117), which offers comprehensive coverage of the National Photographic Association's annual meeting. With four pages of advertisements at rear of No. 120 (December). Text and images quite clean and fresh, only lightest scattered spotting without affecting images; slight edge-wear and soiling to covers of a near-fine collection of rare early American photography.

        Nihon Sanbutsushi [trans.: Government Survey of the Natural Resources of Japan]

      Very numerous full-page woodcuts. Five parts in 11 vols. [complete]. Large 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block printed title labels on upper covers, stitched as issued oriental style (newly threaded). [Tokyo]: Monbusho [Ministry of Education], 1873-77. First edition of this massive survey of the natural resources of Japan. Ito (1803-1901), Japanese physician and biologist who studied Western science under Franz von Siebold during the 1820s, became a professor at the University of Tokyo. He was a leader in public health projects and science policy from the beginning of the Meiji period through the rest of his career. He established a method of vaccination for use in Japan which many consider his greatest achievement as a medical doctor. The present work is a government-sponsored review of the natural resources of Japan. It is the first great survey of the country after the establishment of the Meiji era in 1868. Ito reviews the mineral, agricultural, and fishery resources of many of the Japanese islands in enormous detail. Each area, known for its own individual natural products, is fully described with details regarding production, industrial and artisanal uses, etc. The survey was never completed but this set is complete with all the published parts. The woodcuts are here in particularly fine and sharp impressions, richly inked. Most of the woodcuts are titled with Japanese characters and their western names in Roman type. Fine set. Complete sets are very rare as the five parts were each individually issued; it is difficult to assemble a complete set.

        A Treatise on the Law of Patents for Useful Inventions, in the...

      1873. Final Edition of Curtis's Important Treatise on Patents Curtis, George Ticknor [1812-1894]. A Treatise on the Law of Patents for Useful Inventions, In the United States of America. Revised and Enlarged. Boston: Little, Brown and Co., 1873. xxxvii, 749 pp. Octavo (9" x 6"). Recent period-style calf, blind rules to boards, raised bands and red and black lettering pieces to spine, endpapers renewed. Light toning to text, minor edgewear to preliminaries and index leaves, internally clean. * Fourth and final edition. First published in 1849, this was one of the earliest American treatises on the subject. The granting of patents in Anglo-American law has often been marked by confusion over their scope and intent. There has been much debate, for example, about whether patents create monopolies. Curtis argued that they do not according to the common law. Instead, a patent is a "grant by the government to the author of a new and useful invention, of the exclusive right, for a term of years, of practising that invention" (xxi). Best known as an expert on the U.S. Constitution, Curtis was a prominent New York patent attorney and the author of important works on admiralty law and equity jurisprudence. Catalogue of the Library of the Harvard Law School (1909) I:503.

      1873. [a handsome copy] or, The Marvellous and Exciting Adventures of Pierre Aronnax... Translated from the French. One Hundred and Ten Illustrations. (Edition of James R. Osgood & Co.) Sold Only by Subscription. Boston: Geo. M. Smith & Co., 1873. Original green cloth decorated in gilt and black. First American Edition, second and usual "Smith" issue, of Verne's famous tale of Captain Nemo and the submarine Nautilus. Considerable confusion surrounds the relationship of the two Boston 1873 title pages that can appear in this title -- the James R. Osgood & Company title page, and this usual Geo. M. Smith & Co. one (which refers to the Osgood one and indicates "sold by subscription only"). The bindings of the two are nearly identical (the Osgood binding reads "...UNDER THE SEA" and bears a jellyfish in the center of the front cover, whereas the Smith binding properly reads "...UNDER THE SEAS" and has Captain Nemo using a sextant on the front cover). Clearly the Osgood one is a bit earlier and is much scarcer: supposedly only about fifteen copies were known to exist, but we have handled more than a dozen of them over the past 20 years (all between $12,000 and $27,500), so our guess would be more like fifty. One theory is that the Osgood title page may have designated the subscription issue, and that the Smith one, being much less scarce, must have designated the subsequent trade issue. Another possibility is that most of the Osgood edition was consumed by a Boston fire.~This copy is a standard copy without gilt page edges (a deluxe feature for which the original buyer paid extra). On the final page of text, there is no "THE END" (some copies have it, some have it partially, and some do not have it at all; this is not an "issue point" as is sometimes claimed, but merely a case of type slippage during a single print run, with no bearing upon which copies were actually first to reach the public).~As for condition, this is a bright, nearly fine copy (a few tiny nicks in the spine ends); remarkably, the original dark brown endpapers of this hefty volume are still entirely intact..

Plats ornés d'un semis de lions des Flandres dans un triple encadrement de filets dorés et roulettes, double filet doré sur les coupes; large dentelle avec roulette en encadrement intérieur. Contreplats et gardes habillés de soie bleue, tranches dorées. (E. Bosquet). Ex libris Dumont de Roubaix. Envoi autographe de l'auteur. Très bel exemplaire somptueusement relié. Extrait du tome XI des Mémoires de l'Académie royale des sciences, des lettres et des beaux-arts de Belgique. Les Bandes d'odonnance, dont la formation remonte au XVe siècle, sont des unités militiares d'élite qui forment le noyau de l'armée permanente habsbourgeoise aux Pays-Bas. La plupart des bandes d'ordonnance comptent cinquante cavaliers lours et cent archers. (Pirenne 1775). Bandes d'ordonnance (French) or Benden van ordonnantie (Dutch) were elite heavy cavalry formations recruited from the aristocracy in the early-modern Low Countries. They were originally formed by Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, and became an integral part of the military organization of the Low Countries from the mid-fifteenth to late-sixteenth centuries, up to the first years of the Eighty Years' War. They continued to exist into the seventeenth century with far less military importance, although a command in a Bande d'ordonnance was still a considerable social distinction.

      Lisbon, Mattos Moreira e Compª, 1873. - 8°, contemporary quarter calf, author title gilt. Some browning, scattered light soiling. Inscribed presentation copy to D. Luiz da Camera Leme, by the author. Lithographic frontispiece, 185 pp. *** FIRST EDITION of these stories by one of Portugal's best historical novelists. Rebello da Silva was a protégé of Herculano, and Herculano's best and most immediate successor; Herculano himself bragged that his disciple's work rivaled Sir Walter Scott's. Rebello da Silva also showed considerable skill as a historian and an excellent prose style in such works as the unfinished @Historia de Portugal nos séculos XVII e XVIII (5 volumes, 1860-1871), which remains a useful work. He was responsible for beginning to collect the documents on Portugal's relations with the Vatican that comprise the massive @Corpo diplomatico portuguez (1862- ), and he completed the Visconde de Santarem's @Quadro elementar das relações políticas e diplomáticas de Portugal, which set out the Portuguese role in exploring the west coast of Africa. Rebello da Silva (1822-1871), who was born in Lisbon and died there, was also a journalist, a brilliant political orator, a professor of political economy and a dramatist. The frontispiece portrait of the author is by Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro (1846-1905), one of the best Portuguese caricaturists. *** Not in Innocêncio; cf. V, 228 and XIII, 350 for other works by this author. Cf. Bell, @Portuguese Literature p. 296 and Saraiva & Lopes, @História da literatura portuguesa (1976) pp. 825-6. NUC: IU, CaBVaU, CU, WU, MH.
