        A Journey to the Centre of the Earth

      Henry L. Shepard, 1874 Henry L. Shepard & Co, Boston, 1874. Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good. [ Edouard ] Riou (illustrator). Second American Edition. [ Edouard ] Riou. Second American Edition. vi, [1], [1 blank], 9-294 pages. Handsome original red pictorial binding showing "the explorers aboard their raft in the volcano" on the front cover. Cloth. Second American edition of Verne's second book. The first edition of this work was published serially by Frank Leslie. The first American edition in book form was published by Scribner, Armstrong in Nov 8, 1873 based on the English translation by Griffith and Farran. The example offered here, was published by Henry L. Shepard & Co as a cheap edition, and announced in the July 1, 1874 issue of American Booksellers Guide, Shepard intended this edition to compete with the Scribner Armstrong edition of 1873. Other than the binding, which is quite nice, the production values show a less detailed eye - offsetting from other sheets, broken type in places, etc. Taves and Michaluk (V002) note the Scribner Armstrong edition contains 52 full page woodcut illustrations by Riou. This copy by Shepard has 2 figures with lanterns on the spine, and the 15 called for illustrations, with one further (Prof von Hardwigg) plus the vignette on the title page. Scribner responded to Shepard's challenge with a popular edition in plain cloth later in 1874 with 20 illustrations of their own. A nice early edition of this Verne classic not often found in the marketplace. Taves & Michaluk V002. Very good condition. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase.. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. Very Good.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Not published, Hawksfold, Fernhurst, Haslemere 1874 - One page letter entirely in the hand of and signed by English architect Anthony Salvin. Dated August 24th, 1874, it reads "Dear Sir, with reference to you inquiry about Cholmondeley Castle. I believe the additions were made from designs by Sir Robert Smirke. I am dear sir, yours truly [signed] A. Salvin." Smirke added towers for 2nd Marquess of Cholmondeley in 1829. Although written, it is unclear who Salvin is replying to in this letter. Included is an undated two-page manuscript note, quite possibly written by Salvin (it apears to be signed "Salvin" at end) in 1849; the difference of 25 years would explain the moderate difference in handwriting which shows much similarity. This note appears to be a dedication for the completion of St. Mary's, started 1842. This is a mock-Gothic chapel near Arley Hall in Cheshire and built for Rowland E. Egerton-Warburton (1804-1891). Included is a mid-19th century engraving of St. Mary's. Salvin came from a Durham family, and went to London, where he became a pupil of John Nash. He then started his own practice which lasted for some 60 years. He became an expert on medieval fortifications, building and/or altering over 73 country houses. He did much restoration work on many castles including Windsor Castle and the Jewel House at the Tower of London. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1836, became vice-president in 1839, and in 1863 the Institue conferred its gold medal on him. Autograph, Manuscript. Size: Octavo (8vo) [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

He was due to step from his royal yacht at precisely 11.30am on May 13th at Gravesend. Thousands were waiting to watch the arrival, but instead they were told that His Imperial Majesty's yacht had run aground off Holland and could not be moved until high tide. The Tsar had to divert to Dover for a hastily arranged welcome and a dash by train to Windsor. Queen Victoria was warned by telegram. "What a contretemps!" she noted in her diary. "We only sat down to dinner, in fact supper, at quarter to 11." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Marine Mammals of the North-Western Coast of North America, described and illustrated; . with an account of the American Whale-Fishery.

      - San Francisco, John H. Carmany 1874. Quarto contemporary half morocco; 320,vpp, 27 litho plates (6 folding, these mounted on linen at the time of binding), illustrations through the text. Ex parliamentary library with their gilt crest on the front boards and incorporated into the spine, not marked inside; foxing but a handsome copy. A handsome book, in its way a sophistication of a cave painter's delineation of his prey. Here Scammon - a whale and seal hunter - has turned naturalist, creating a modern scientific and historical monument with such care that a few of the illustrations show an almost transcendental love of what is, or soon will be, a product. At the end is a whaling vocabulary and an inventory of stores for a first-class whale-ship for a Cape Horn voyage. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
