Le Conte, Joseph]
Francis & Valentine, San Francisco, 1875. 103pp. plus nine original mounted albumen photographs. Original blue cloth, front board gilt. Cloth a bit soiled, moderate wear at spine ends and corners. Inscribed on front fly leaf (see below). Small tear in lower outer corner of mount of second photograph (not even approaching the printed border). Very nice tonality in the photographic prints. Very clean internally. Very good. This copy is signed by one of the members of the University Excursion Party, Everett Pomeroy ("Compliments of Everett B. Pomeroy"), and is quite rare thus. This firm has handled five copies of this book - and noticed several others in the market - and this is the first association copy we have seen. Everett Pomeroy was one of five graduates who received a B.A. from the University of California in 1871, the school's second graduating class. Pomeroy went on to earn a Master's degree in 1875 and was also a member of the California state National Guard. In 1875 President Grant appointed him United States Attorney for Arizona Territory. A rare photographically illustrated account of a tour of Yosemite and the High Sierras, by one of the pioneer founders of the University of California. Joseph Le Conte studied with Louis Agassiz at Harvard before going to California to serve as professor of geology, and he was among the charter members of the Sierra Club. This work describes Le Conte's first expedition, with students of the University, into the Sierras, and the text wonderfully conveys Le Conte's enthusiasm for the region and its natural beauty. While in Yosemite … [Click Below for Full Description]

Verne, Jules
Boston: Geo. M. Smith & Co, 1875. Very good.. Original gilt-pictorial green cloth with Captain Nemo design in central vignette, elaborately gilt-stamped spine. Blue coated endpapers. Full-page wood engravings by Hildibrand after Alphonse de Neuville and Edouard Riou. Translated by Lewis Mercier. xiii, [3], 303, [1] pages. Bookplate on front pastedown. Moderate wear to carefully repaired spine, with fraying at edges slightly exposing underlying structure. Hinges cracked but firm. Early American edition, in the evocative gilt pictorial cloth binding, and fantastically illustrated with over one hundred full-page wood engravings. This Boston translation reproduces the very steampunk illustrations of the French first edition, from Captain Nemo's incredible library on the submarine NAUTILUS to the tentacle-flailing fight with the Giant Squid. First translated into English in 1873, this early edition contains the correct titling on the binding as "under the seas" rather than "under the sea." A very presentable copy of a book notoriously read to death.

Tilton vs Beecher Trial Ticket
Brooklyn, N.Y.: , 1875. The Tilton versus Beecher Trial. Beach, William A. Admit Bearer to Trial, Tilton vs. Beecher At the City Court Room. Signed, "W. A. Beach." A printed ticket form signed in ink by William A. Beach (1809 – 1892), the senior counsel of the legal team representing the plaintiff, Theodore Tilton. Printed on decorated heavy paper 6.5 cm x 10 cm. Condition fine. A rare surviving paper admission ticket-pass for repeated entry to the most sensational trial in nineteenth-century America, this special ticket-pass, signed by an officer of the City Court in Brooklyn, admitted an unidentified bearer to the legal action brought by Tilton against his wife's lover, Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, for alienation of affection. On August 20, 1874 Theodore Tilton started his lawsuit against Henry Ward Beecher for alienation of affections. The trial began January 11, 1875 and lasted six months. Unlike the blue paper "day pass" tickets which were collected at the door of the courtroom gallery, this special ticket-pass was returned to the bearer and may have been used by a member of Mr. Tilton's legal team. The Tilton-Beecher trial was lurid front-page news in every major newspaper in America for months and ended with a hung jury. On May 22, 1871, a letter to the editor of the New York World written by Victoria Woodhull was published, in which she said, among other things, "My judges preach against 'free love' openly and practice it secretly; their outward seeming is fair [but] inwardly they are full of 'dead men's bones and all manner of uncleanness.'

London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1875-1876. [Science Fiction Adventure] COMPLETE EARLY EDITIONS, second editions of volumes I and III, and a first edition of volume II. Octavo (20 x 15 x 14cm), pp.viii; 310 [34]; pp.viii; 304 [40]; pp.viii, 299 [53]. With the original engraved illustrations by Ferat on half-tone plates, including frontispieces to volumes I and III. Publisher's green cloth with gilt and black titles and decoration stamped to spines and uppers. All edges gilt. All volumes heavily rubbed, with joints and hinges split or starting, and some recent repairs. Volume II lacks front fly-leaf and frontispiece. Volume I more heavily worn, with very rough repairs to hinges with cloth strips. All volumes heavily thumbed, with plenty of marks and some occasional spotting. Heavy pencil notes to blank side of frontispiece to volume I. Black ink gift inscription to fly-leaf of volume III. Fair, but rare thus. A group of Yankee prisoners of war escape by balloon from the siege of Richmond during the American Civil War (perhaps recalling the use of balloons during the siege of Paris in 1871), and end up on a remote Pacific island which, after a series of unlikely adventures, turns out to be Captain Nemo's secret lair (of Twenty-Thousand Leagues' fame). First published in 1875 and translated into English the same year.

GREAVES, Walter.
London: , [c.1875]. Oil on board. 1060 x 882 mm. Signed and dated bottom left: "W. Greaves 1875". Framed. Half-length, standing slightly to right, face to viewer, with monocle in right eye, paint brush in right hand, palette in left, wearing beret, yellow tie, black overcoat, against riverside background (Battersea Wharf). Whistler moved to 7 Lindsey Row, Chelsea, in March 1863. Among his neighbours were the Greaveses, a family of Thames watermen. Walter and Henry Greaves (1844-1904) became his guides on the river, pupils, and devoted assistants in the studio. Walter and Henry themselves had been painting from their earliest years, probably starting by doing heraldic work on boats in their father's yard. They found their subjects in the Chelsea streets and at local regattas, and would often work in tandem, signing their joint productions "H. & W. Greaves". As river guides, it was Walter and Henry who first showed Whistler Cremorne pleasure gardens by night, a sight that was to inspire his painting Nocturne in Black and Gold: the Falling Rocket (Detroit Institute of Art), which, when exhibited at the Grosvenor Gallery in 1877, aroused the ire of Ruskin and precipitated the most famous lawsuit in the history of British art. In return for their services and as a mark of his friendship, Whistler taught the boys his own methods of painting. In homage to his hero Walter Greaves produced more than a hundred portraits of Whistler, most of them from memory. Some of the Greaveses' Whistler images are dated; those of the early 1860s to late 1870s are records of the period of their … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gilt-pictorial dark green cloth expertly rebacked, retaining the original backstrip; corners lightly bumped; four-digit reference number in white ink near the foot of the spine blacked out (but not invisibly); small public library inkstamp on the title page (with a larger accession stamp, now cancelled, on the verso); front endpaper a little blemished (a library plate has been soaked off the pastedown, and the hinge is cracked, but still firm); expert conservation to the central fold in the map; trifling signs of use and age; notwithstanding, a very crisp and bright copy. Peter Egerton Warburton (1813-1889) left Alice Springs for Western Australia in April 1873 with six men and seventeen camels. The party 'endured long periods of extreme heat with little water, and survived only by killing the camels for meat. They reached the Oakover River with Warburton strapped to a camel.

1875. Four black and white photographs, each measuring 6.75" x 4.5", mounted on stiff cardboard, measuring 6.5" x 5.5", with three holes in the left margins indicating they might once have been contained in a photo album. Two of the photos are somewhat faded at the edges, the mounts toned and with scattered spots, overall very good. The photos depict several groups of soldiers at their camp. Two photos show formal images of men posing before the camera and in full uniform. One has 34 men outside by tents standing and seated, several with pipes in hand and two mugging for the camera by posing like boxers, while the other photo is of a smaller group of six men with their rifles leaning together at the center. The other photos capture a group of soldiers holding a blanket and tossing another soldier in the air while others watch. The final images is of eight smiling men in various states of undress, in long underwear and one shirtless, lounging in a tent in a very relaxed and friendly manner with a black soldier at the center leaning next to a white soldier with casual ease. Our research suggests these photographs are of enlisted men from the 1st Regiment, U.S. Infantry taken in 1875 or shortly after, based on what appears to be uniformly worn five-button Sack Coats (first issued in 1874) and post-Civil War style forage caps (1872) and infantry insignia (1875). Despite a number of names written on a sign (seen in two of the photos), we have not been able to identify the particular company or any individual soldiers. We suspect a more careful examination of military records mig … [Click Below for Full Description]

FRENCH, Arthur and R.S. Crandall. (Adah Richmond)
F.W. Helmick, 278 W. Sixth St, Cincinnati, Ohio, 1875. Piano-vocal score. Quarto (10" x 13"). 6pp. Front cover printed in blue and gold, with a mounted albumen photograph of Adah Richmond. With publisher's advertisements printed on the front cover verso and on the back cover. Old spine repairs, modest crease on front cover, very good. In the late 1870s Adah Richmond formed a groundbreaking burlesque company, credited as marking the beginning of American burlesque. In*No Legs, No Jokes, No Chance: A History of the American Musical Theater*, the authors credit Richmond's company with the "beginning ofAmericanburlesque," (original emphasis) still based on a British parody format, but with "heightened sexiness," and less fidelity to a continuous narrative across multiple acts. (Patinkin & Patinkin, 2008, p. 56). Later, Richmond was involved in a lurid theater scandal when she contested the will of Boston banker and theater owner John Stetson as his long-lost wife. Although Stetson may have been a bigamist, Richmond lost the suit when her own string of earlier marriages (and lack of divorces) were revealed. *OCLC* locates only two copies. This copy seemingly as issued; both holdings recorded in *OCLC* (JHU Sheridan and BYU) for this cover; neither holding has this photograph. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

No date, no publisher. [1875] 29.3 cm x 21.5 cm. Back cover is a full-page advertisement for The Days' Doings! Listing the Days' Doings Co., at 535 Pearl St., N.Y. Four signatures of 16 pages each of machined paper, 64 pages, 72 in-text engravings not the "over one hundred" proclaimed on the cover and first page of text, 73 engravings counting the portrait of Henry Ward Beecher on the front cover. There are 8 full-page engravings, 2 nearly full-page and 62 other text illustrations of varying sizes.

Two copies of this pamphlet in addition to the copy offered here make three recorded copies of this contemporaneous imprint. This copy is untrimmed and in near-fine condition. Tilton versus Beecher was the most sensational trial in nineteenth-century America. Tilton brought a legal action his wife's lover, Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, for alienation of affection. The trial was lurid front-page news in every major newspaper in America for months, and the trial ended with a hung jury. On May 22, 1871, a letter to the editor of the New York World written by Victoria Woodhull was published, in which she said, among other things, adapting Matthew 23:27 to her purpose, "My judges preach against free love openly and practice it se … [Click Below for Full Description]
