The first text page (shown above) is detached, but present. This is an early edition published by Lamoni, Iowa in 1874. A rare find in any condition. Synopsis The Book of Mormon is a sacred text of the Latter Day Saint movement, which adherents believe contains writings of ancient prophets who lived on the American continent from approximately 2200 BC to AD 421. It was first published in March 1830 by Joseph Smith as The Book of Mormon: An Account Written by the Hand of Mormon upon Plates Taken from the Plates of Nephi. According to Smith's account and the book's narrative, the Book of Mormon was originally written in otherwise unknown characters referred to as "reformed Egyptian" engraved on golden plates. Smith said that the last prophet to contribute to the book, a man named Moroni, buried it in Cumorah Hill in present-day New York, then returned to Earth in 1827 as an angel, revealing the location of the plates to Smith, and instructing him to translate it into English for use in the restoration of Christ's true church in the latter days. Critics claim that it was fabricated by Smith, drawing on material and ideas from … [Click Below for Full Description]

Power of the State to Exclude Foreigners from its Limits, And to Prevent Their Landing, On Account of the Immorality of Their Past Lives, Considered: Opinion of Mr. Justice Field, Of U.S. Supreme Court, Delivered Sept. 21st, 1874, In the Case of Ah Fong, A Chinese Woman, Brought Before the Circuit Court of the United States for the District of California on a Writ of Habeas Corpus.

The case of Ah Fong, a female Chinese immigrant, was tried in 1874 in the U.S. District Court of California. The opinion was written by Field, an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Field's opinion ruled against the California commissioner of immigration in favor of Ah Fong and other female Chinese immigrants. As a group, these women had been unfairly characterized by the immigration authorities as prostitutes. Field agreed that preventing the immigration of prostitutes was a legitimate goal, but he held that targeting a single foreign group, rather than prostitutes from all nations, was discriminatory. It also infringed on a federal treaty power. The following year, however, Field's point became moot. Congress passed the Page Act of 1875, the first United States … [Click Below for Full Description]

WINSTON CHURCHILL
WINSTON CHURCHILL (1874-1965). Churchill was the British Prime Minister from 1940 to 1945, and again from 1951 to 1955. He was awarded the 1953 Nobel Prize in Literature and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. ALS. 1pg. 5” x 8”. July 31, 1918. Whitehall Place. An autograph letter signed “Winston S. Churchill” to Eric Geddes, then the First Lord of the Admiralty. Churchill, then the newly installed Minister of Munitions, worked to improve the department’s operations. He also threatened to put striking munitions employees in the army. Churchill wrote: “My dear Geddes, I shall be very much obliged to you if you will allow Sir Robert Horne to serve as a representative of the Admiralty on the Committee of Enquiry which I am setting up to investigate the labour trouble of last week. I am anxious to announce the composition of the Committee tomorrow, so I shd [sic] be grateful for a very early reply. Yours sincerely Winston S. Churchill”. Previous to World War I, there had been labor strikes in England, but they subsided with the onset of the Great War. In the later part of World War I, some labor unrest began again because of stagnant wages and rising prices. Eric Geddes was a British businessman and Conservative Member of Parliament. Sir Robert Horne was a Scottish politician, Member of Parliament, and Minister of Labour under David Lloyd George in 1919 and 1920. The letter is attractively framed with a photograph of the young Churchill.

He was given Livingstone's journals following Henry Morton Stanley's discovery of him in Africa. Waller was associated with many other explorers involved in central and east African mission work. He was an advocate of the British imperial expansion. These two volumes were central in the forming of the popular Livingstone narrative. It follows his final African expedition from 1865 to 1873. Mendelssohn notes that 'The objects of the expedition were the suppression of slavery, and the exploration of the South Central Lake system of South Africa'. Livingstone is regarded as one of the most popular British heroes of the latter half of the nineteenth century.

O SULLIVAN, TIMOTHY and WILLIAM BELL.
Washington: War Department Corps of Engineers, 1874-75. This rare collection of 50 photographs is a monument of photography of the American West. Lt. George Wheeler’s expedition of 1871-74 was an ambitious survey of the vast region west of the 100th meridian, including Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Idaho. The official photographer was Timothy O’Sullivan, who had trained under Mathew Brady and Alexander Gardner. O’Sullivan established himself as one of the foremost American photographers during the Civil War and on the King survey before joining the Wheeler survey in 1871. British-born William Bell served as a substitute during O’Sullivan’s months assigned to the King survey in 1872. O’Sullivan rejoined the Wheeler survey in 1873 and 1874. Over the four-year project O’Sullivan and Bell created some of the best and most dramatic photographs of the American West ever made. Some of the most spectacular photographs resulted from the 200- mile journey up the Colorado River. The Colorado River photographs comprise “arguably the most important photographic sequence in nineteenth-century American photography” (Jurovics). “In 1873 O’Sullivan led an independent expedition for Wheeler, visiting the Zuni and Magia pueblos and the Canyon de Chelly, with its remnants of a cliff-dwelling culture. O’Sullivan’s 1873 images of Apache scouts are among the few unromanticized pictures of the western Indian, unlike those of many ethnographic photographers who posed Indians in the studio or outdoors against neutral backgrounds” (Merry A. Foresta, American Photographs: The First Century, Natio … [Click Below for Full Description]

Custer, George Armstrong
New York: Sheldon and Company, 1874. Book. Octavo, 256 pages; G-; bound in publisher's brown cloth, gilt and black tooling; mild rubbing and wear to boards, corners bumped; front gutter shaken and loosening; multiple old newspaper clippings pasted to endpapers, also pasted to rear of one plate, some offsetting from clippings present; one endpaper loose, but present; with portrait frontispiece; shelved case 1. After the Civil War, Custer was appointed a lieutenant colonel in the Regular Army and was sent west to fight in the Indian Wars. On June 25, 1876, while leading the 7th Cavalry Regiment at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana Territory against a coalition of Native American tribes, he was killed along with over one third of his command during an action later romanticized as "Custer's Last Stand". Before he died, he wrote a series of magazine articles of his experiences on the frontier, which were published in book form as My Life on the Plains in 1874. The work is still a valued primary source for information on US-Native relations. [wikipedia]. Shelved Dupont Bookstore. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
