        May du Maurier

      Freshwater, September 1874 - "Albumen print, original mount. 34 x 27.5 cm. Inscribed and signed on the mount by Cameron: "From life, registered photograph, copy right, Julia Margaret Cameron, Freshwater, Sep. 1874." Very good condition. This is an unrecorded portrait by Julia Margaret Cameron, the foremost British portrait photographer of her time. "How masterly are her straightforward, truthful portraits, which are entirely free from false sentiment." "It is they which have made her work immortal in the annals of photography" (Gernsheim). "After receiving a camera as a gift, Julia Margaret Cameron began her career in photography at the age of forty-eight. She produced the majority of her work from her home at Freshwater on the Isle of Wight. By the coercive force of her eccentric personality, she enlisted everyone around her as models, from family members to domestic servants and local residents. The wife of a retired jurist, Cameron moved in the highest circles of society in Victorian England. She photographed the intellectuals and leaders within her circle of family and friends, among them the portrait painter George Frederick Watts, the astronomer Sir John Herschel, and the Poet Laureate Alfred, Lord Tennyson. She derived much of her subject inspiration from literature, and her work in turn influenced writers" (Getty Museum) Cameron declared that "My aspirations are to ennoble Photography and to secure for it the character and uses of High Art by combining the real and Ideal and sacrificing nothing of the Truth by all possible devotion to Poetry and beauty." In September 1874 illustrator and novelist George Du Maurier, his wife, and his daughter May came to Cameron's home at the village of Freshwater on the Isle of Wight and sat for portraits. This image is unrecorded in Cox and Ford, Julia Margaret Cameron: The Complete Photographs, which lists four portraits from the occasion (nos. 213-215 and 940). Cameron quotes Du Maurier as saying that her photography "charms me." Provenance: George du Maurier, and by descent."

        Report of the Board of Officers on Gatling Guns of Large Caliber for Flank-Defence - with two autograph letters signed to Edgar T. Welles.

      Washington: Government Printing Office, 1874 - Quarto. Original pinkish cloth, title and Ordnance Department crest gilt to the upper board. Boards sunned and rubbed, spine damaged head and tail, hinges a little cracked, light browning to the text, about very good. 2 photogravure plates of the gun, 19 lithographed target plates, and 3 schematics, tables to the text. First edition. Engraved bookplate; "Compliments of the Acting Chief of Ordnance, U.S. Army" to the front pastedown. Two 2-page autograph letters signed on Gatling Gun Company stationery from Richard J. Gatling to Edgar T. Welles, son of Gideon Welles Civil War Secretary of the Navy, and secretary and treasurer of the Gatling Gun Co. In the first, dated 4 August 1885, Gatling asks Welles to join him at the Larkin House, Watch Hill, Rhode Island, where he is staying, at his wife's insistence, for his health; "I have a good many things to talk over with you - more than I can write - and I want you to also to meet Col. Prince [Col. Frederick W. Prince, Civil War artillery veteran who joined Gatling in 1885] He will, I think, be a good man to work up state orders." The second, dated 21 October 1886, carries a note of urgency, perhaps even desperation; "The hands at the Armory who make Gatling Guns, are about out of work and unless we can get some orders for guns soon, they will have to be discharged. If this is done it will be bad for us, for in the event we should get large orders hereafter, it would be difficult to get green hands to make guns so as to pass inspection." Gatling despatches Welles to go Washington, "the earliest day possible & see Genl. Benét [Stephen Vincent Benét, Chief of Army Ordnance], and don't take 'no' from him, but insist on his giving us an order for the 23 guns ordered by the States, & which Col. Prince procured the orders for at our expense " and while there he should "see Com[modore] Sicard [Montgomery Sicard, Chief of Naval Ordnance]; and Com[ander] Folger [William M. Folger, Inspector of Naval Ordnance, Annapolis] who is now in Washington. The new war ships & monitors will ere long need Gatlings & it would save time if the Navy Dept. would order them now." Both letters a little browned, and with creases from postal folding, but very good, and with excellent content. Additionally inserted is a superbly-preserved contemporary price-list for Gatling Guns and ammunition for New York dealers Hartley & Graham, featuring a large engraving of a Gatling "with positive or Accles' Feed." Altogether a splendid assemblage. Riling 957

        A Monograph of Odontoglossum.

      London: L. Reeve & Co., [1864] - 1874. - Folio (20 2/8 x 14 4/8 inches). Half title, dedication leaf. 30 hand-colored lithographed plates by Walter Hood Finch with descriptive text (pale waterstain to upper margin of plate 5). Contemporary half green morocco gilt (extremities a bit rubbed). First edition. The greatest work on the genus Odontoglossum orchids with magnificent illustrations by Finch, one of the great botanical artists of the Victorian Era. These plates are among his very best. Though this genus was renowned for its beauty, it was not introduced into Europe until late in the nineteenth century due to the mistaken belief that it required hot humid conditions to be cultivated successfully. In reality these high altitude plants (not found below 2500 feet) thrive in cool temperatures and dry air. They are native to Central and West-South America. The demand for this species was quite high and dealers rushed to corner the market. Bateman tells in his introduction of three independent expeditions to Grenada that sailed on the same ship for the same purpose. "Extremely variable in their markings, there are over three hundred known species of Odontoglossum in Mexico and South America. The genus grows predominantly at high elevations . Although their introduction into Europe came relatively late, their need for cool temperatures and dry air made them popular with those who had no greenhouse" (The orchid observed). "Fitch (1817-1892), the most prolific of all botanical artists, was a typical product of the Victorian era, able and industrious. [He] was a young apprentice to a firm of Glasgow calico designers when Hooker. first made his acquaintance. In 1841, when Hooker was appointed Director of the Royal Gardens at Kew, he took [Fitch] south with him. Some idea of Fitch's gigantic industry can be gauged from the [f]act that 9960 published drawings by him are recorded" (Blunt).Great Flower Books, p.49; Nissen BBI 88; The Orchid Observed 20; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 343.

        Cattelya Doweava from watercolors of Odontoglossum, or American orchids

      - Walter Hood Fitch; Watercolors of Odontoglossum, or American orchids; London, circa 1874; 14” x 17” framed Walter Hood Fitch was the most noted botanical artist of the 19th century to focus on orchids, and the foremost catalyst of what can aptly be termed British “orchidomania.” Incredibly attuned to the smallest details of the most exquisite flowers, Fitch was uniquely able to capture the beauty and complexity of the orchidaceae. The reasons for his acclaim were best described by Sir Joseph Hooker, who noted that Fitch was an “incomparable botanical artist,” with “unrivaled skill in seizing the natural character of a plant.” The artist reached the height of his fame in his splendid collaboration with James Bateman, producing the fabulous and important Monograph of the Odontoglossum (London, 1874), which described the range of this beautiful genus of American Orchids. Found at high altitudes, from “the confines of Florida to the frontiers of Chile” (preface), these orchids were among the most striking and exotic ever offered to avid European viewers. Yet the hand-colored lithographs that were published, while stunning, did not approach the depth of color and nuance to be found in Fitch's original watercolors, mainly preserved today in the Royal Collection at Kew Gardens. The watercolors being offered here were discovered recently, and clearly intended as the unique prototypes for a second volume on the Odontoglossum. Despite the fact that Fitch created these flawless watercolors that more than rivaled the images of the first edition, the sequel was never brought to completion, and remains unrecorded even in its planning stages. That being said, it is difficult to approximate in words the vivid beauty of Fitch's original compositions. The artist captured with outstanding naturalism and vibracy the alternate subtlety and flamboyance of the American orchids, the textures of their soft, often translucent petals and opaque leaves and stems. Each defining characteristic is illuminated in profound detail, creating a suite of the most breathtakingly beautiful, large-scale images of orchids to come on the market. As noted, with the aid of such striking imagery, Fitch was largely responsible for creating an orchid mania in Victorian Britain. Huge greenhouses were built, and adding to such enthusiasm was the fact that Britain enjoyed a brisk trade in botanical specimens, and there was soon a proliferation of illustrated periodicals for horticulturists at every level of experience. Though many followed in Fitch's footsteps, his contribution to English botanical art is unique. Many of the orchids immortalized in his watercolors have since been lost to cultivation, while some are exceedingly rare, and still others extinct. This represents an unparalleled opportunity to acquire original watercolors of outstanding accomplishment, by a foremost botanical artist. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        THE GRIZZLY GIANT

      [Mariposa, Northern California. 1874].. Watercolor on paper, laid down on board, 21 x 14 1/4 inches. Signed, inscribed, and dated across lower image: "The Grizzly Giant. Mariposa / WM Simpson / 1874." Perfectly preserved original condition, rich coloration. Framed and matted. A beautiful watercolor of three men on horseback admiring a towering redwood, the lower formation of bearing a startling resemblance to a grizzly bear, in the Mariposa Grove of northern California, painted by the well known war correspondent and graphic artist, William Simpson. The great tree still stands. Simpson won fame in England in the 1850s for his bold coverage of the Crimean War, and his production of a lavish color plate book, THE SEAT OF THE WAR IN THE EAST, commemorating the ILLUSTRATED LONDON NEWS. He arrived in San Francisco in April 1873, just as the war against the Modoc Indians was coming to a climax. Good correspondent that he was, Simpson headed for the battlefield, the Lava Beds near Mount Shasta on the California- Oregon line, and observed the demise of the Modocs. All of this, as well as further travels in Yosemite (with Bierstadt), San Francisco, and Japan, he describes in detail in his book, MEETING THE SUN (London, 1877). This handsome watercolor is the only known California image by Simpson presently available in the American art market. A number of his California watercolors are in the permanent collection of the Bancroft Library, with other pieces located at the Peabody Museum (Harvard) and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Framed & glazed to an overall size of 21" ½ x 16" [5"1/4 x 7" ½], double matted in windows, gilt filet - The fine wood frame elaborately worked to show intentional character & tone. Trans: "My old Bab / I count on being at Croisset on Wednesday, about 4 o'clock. / Be guided by that / I am all gloomy when I think we won't see each other for a long time! / Yesterday, I finished my library lectures! / I embrace you / Yours / Gve / Saturday morning". "The faster the word sticks to the thought, the more beautiful is the effect." The prime influence over the Realist School of French literature, author of the masterpiece, Madame Bovary (1857). Believer in "le seul mot juste". True friend of the greats; George Sand, Ivan Turgenev, Émile Zola, Alphonse Daudet, &, especially, Guy de Maupassant who regarded himself as Flaubert's disciple & was the great mutual friend of Edmond Laporte. Flaubert sought objectivity above all else in his writing: "The author, in his work, must be like God in the Universe, present everywhere & visible nowhere." It is paradoxical, therefore, that his personality should be so clearly discernible in all his work and that his letters, written casually to his intimates & full of disarming sincerity, delicate sensibility, & even exquisite tenderness-should be considered by some critics as his other masterpiece.

        A JOURNEY TO THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH

      1874 - With Fifty-Two Illustrations by Riou. New York: Scribner Armstrong and Co., 1874. Original orange cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt. First American Edition (to be printed in America) of Jules Verne's second book, preceded only by FIVE WEEKS IN A BALLOON. The original French edition came out in 1864, and the British edition edition came out in November 1871 (dated 1872) -- a few of these copies were sent to America with a Scribner Welford title leaf. This American edition then came out in November 1873, though dated 1874; this copy bears a January 1, 1874 gift inscription from grandfather to grandson. Almost a year later Scribner Armstrong also published this title in a special edition (undated), sold by subscription, on heavy paper stock in a beautiful gilt binding with beveled edges -- which today we do see more frequently than this first American edition.~Though this tale was most-recently filmed in 2008, the most enduring version is the 1959 one starring James Mason and (cough cough) Pat Boone.~This first American edition was issued in blue, green or orange cloth, without precedence. This copy, in orange, is in bright, near-fine condition: the endpapers do have hairline cracks at the hinge but the volume is remarkably free of soil or other wear, and the plates and text are free of foxing. This is a very attractive copy of a book that has become notoriously difficult to acquire in such advantageous condition. Taves & Michaluk V002. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        From the Clouds to the Mountains

      Boston: William F. Gill and Company, 1874 Boston: William F. Gill and Company, 1874. First Illustrated Edition in English. Translated by A.L. Alger. 12mo, 285 pp. Terra-cotta cloth with gilt devices, one of the lighter-than air balloon's gondola separating, and the other three mountain climbers ascending Mt. Blanc. Decorative black and gilt lettering and filigree on cover and spine. Slate coated endpapers. Illustrations, including frontispiece, from wood engravings. Editor's preface [not found on other English editions]. This much-sought version of the collection of five Verne stories (the last, "The Fortieth French Ascent of Mt. Blanc", was written by his brother Paul] may, in fact, be the first collected book edition of any sort in English. While Osgood's edition, entitled Doctor Ox [etc] was announced and registered in May and June 1874 respectively, no copies were deposited until July 17th. This Gill edition was announced as "now ready" on July 11th [ref. Taves & Michaluk V012]. Interestingly, Gill's announcement referred to a quarto size, of which I've never seen an example; presumably, a decision was made in favor of the known size, about 7.3" x 5.6". In any case, a popular translation, one which was followed by a "New Holiday Edition" and a "popular edition". Condition: better than unusual for this title, a sharp very good plus, Slight shelf wear and soiling, spine ends and corners lightly bumped, faint marginal at several pages; ¾" tear on top edge of title page, small paper residue on front pastedown. Very sharp, bright and tight for this title. Stories included: A Drama In Mid-Air; Dr. Ox's Hobby; Master Zachary; A Winter Among the Ice-Fields; and The Fortieth French Ascent of Mt.Blanc. L68

        The Ashanti War. A Narrative prepared from the Official Documents by Permission of Major-General Sir Garnet Wolseley. With Maps and Plans by Harry Cooper. THE BRACKENBURY FAMILY COPY

      William Blackwood Edinburgh 1874 - 2 vols., 8vo., First Edition, with a folding facsimile on blue stock and a double-page map as frontispieces, a folding map and a double-page map, and two large folding maps (one coloured in outline) in pocket at rear of second volume, some very mild occasional foxing, fore-edges dusty; original decorative cloth blocked in blind, gilt backs, uncut, covers moderately soiled (boards to volume two stained with black ink), volume one neatly rebacked with original backstrip (faded) laid down else a good, firm, sound copy of a work scarce in any condition. This volume bears the neat contemporary signature of 'Frank Cooper' and the following holograph inscription: 'Maps drawn by my brother Harry, who was with Colonel Colley as Adjutant of Transport. Col. Colley, afterwards Sir G[eorge]. Pomeroy Colley, was killed in the fatal action of Majuba Hill in Natal fighting against the Boers'. Henry Brackenbury was Assistant Military Secretary to Wolseley; Cooper (as stated correctly above) was sometime Adjutant of Transport during the campaign. The official records were placed by Wolseley at Brackenbury's disposal 'without reservation' and augmented by the latter's private journal which he kept whilst serving at headquarters. The account of Captain Glover's expedition is taken entirely from letters between Wolseley and himself. The missions of Captains Butler and Dalrymple are described from their own letters. Frank Cooper's signature is dated 1874; the Battle of Majuba Hill took place on 27th February 1881 during the First South African War (this action was, incidentally, the last occasion on which British regimental colours were carried into battle). It would seem, therefore, that this was originally Frank Cooper's copy (until at least 1881) which then passed into the Brackenbury family. It was then in the library of Major-General Charles Booth Brackenbury (1831-1890) and bears his signature on the half-title of the second volume. The author's elder brother, he spent his career in the Royal Artillery culminating in his appointment as Director of Artillery Studies at Woolwich, from which position no-one did more to spread sound ideas throughout the service on tactical changes demanded by the advancement in weapons technology. On Charles's death this copy passed to his youngest son, Hereward Irenius Brackenbury and bears his engraved armorial bookplate on front paste-down of first volume. Hereward Brackenbury was a talented engineer and director of the prominent defence contractor Hawthorn Leslie & Co. The Brackenbury family was well represented in nearly all the British wars of the nineteenth century. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT AND DESIRABLE FAMILY COPY SHOWING MULTIPLE ASSOCIATIONS WITH THE AUTHOR OF A CLASSIC VICTORIAN CAMPAIGN MEMOIR. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
