William T Sherman
Appleton New York, 1875. Hailed as prophet of modern war and condemned as a harbinger of modern barbarism, William Tecumseh Sherman is the most controversial general of the American Civil War. War is cruelty, and you cannot refine it, he wrote in fury to the Confederate mayor of Atlanta, and his memoir is filled with dozens of such wartime exchanges. With the propulsive energy and intelligence that marked his campaigns, Sherman describes striking incidents and anecdotes and collects dozens of his incisive and often outspoken wartime orders and reports. This complex self-portrait of an innovative and relentless American warrior provides firsthand accounts of the war s crucial events Shiloh, Vicksburg, Chattanooga, the Atlanta campaign, the marches through Georgia and the Carolinas. 2 volumes, tall 8vo, original blue cloth, decorative covers.

Various Scientific Societies Massachusetts
1875. Calligraphic Memorial Tributes from various Scientific Societies in Massachusetts in memory of their beloved friend and colleague Jeffries Wyman (August 11, 1814-September 4, 1874) Jeffries Wyman was a Harvard Professor, naturalist, anatomist, museum curator, and co-founder of the National Academy of Sciences.

Jeffries Wyman died 4th September 1874 "The wisest man could ask no more of fate then to be simple, modest, manly, true, safe from the Many, honored by the few; nothing to count in world or church or state... but inwardly in secret to be great; to feel mysterious nature ever new; to touch if not to grasp her endless dew; and learn by each discovery how to wait; to widen knowledge and escape the praise; wisely to teach because more wise to learn; to toil for science not to draw men's gaze; but for her lore of self-denial stern; that such a man could spring from our decays fans the souls nobler faith until it burn. Signed JR Lowell 27 Jan 1875" The book was originally a gift from H W Muzzey of Cambridge to Jeffries brother, Dr Morrill Wyman according to the tipped in handwritten letter.

New York: McLoughlin Bros, 1875. Box. Very good. This set contains two puzzles (each with all their pieces) and the box. The box measures approximately 8.75" by 10.5". Each puzzle measures about 9" x 10.5". One puzzle depicts an African-American cakewalk dancer in drag with bonnet, cape, and parasol. The other puzzle shows a four-person African-American combo consisting of a singer, piano player, drummer, and bass player. The box top illustration is the picture guide for one of the puzzles; there is no guide for the other. The puzzle pieces are in nice shape with some light soiling; one piece has been repaired. The box shows some minor wear and soiling but the top illustration and lettering is bright and colorful. The box hinge is intact. There are apparently four two-puzzle sets in this series. The other box tops show a pair of cakewalk dancers, a man smoking a cigar, and a performer ringing a bell. All four are exceptionally scarce and very hard to find in serviceable original boxes with all their pieces. (Female cakewalk performers did not become common until the 1890s. Before that, men dressed in drag to portray women.)These jigsaw puzzle sets have been characterized as "blatantly sadistic," "threateningly violent," and "the earliest and most racist" children's toy published in the United States."Racist," absolutely; "sadistic" and "threateningly violent," absolutely not. The "chopped up" in the title simply refers to jigsaw or "dissection" puzzles, and another McLoughlin puzzle set published at the same time was titled "Chopped Up Animals".

AUDSLEY, GEORGE ASHDOWN, AND BOWES, J
LONDON AND LIVERPOOL,, 1875 Published by HENRY SOTHERAN, LONDON Binding: HARD BACK BLUE Size: 12 X 16 173 Pages Overall Condition is: VERY GOOD ELEPHANT FOLIOS, 12 INCHES X 16 INCHES, BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL CONDITION 6 raised ribbed leather spine and boards Fine gilt tooling to edges and inside margin of boards. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt, rubricrated title page, headings, etc. A superb example of Victorian book design and production. This was the first major study in English of Japanese ceramic art, which attempted the then unique task of classifying all known varieties of the porcelain of Japan. The author, George Audsley, was a well-known architect and authority on the decorative arts, particularly those of Japan, as was Bowes, who went on to write a number of works on the subject. The great majority of plates in The Keramic Art of Japan are full colour chromolithographs (produced by the art-printers Firmin-Didot et Cie, of Paris) and show a quality - particularly in the reproduction of the gilt work - unrivalled in most quality art books today. It is truly not an overstatement to say that each of the plates is an artwork in itself. As always the title page bears the date 1875, whereas the Preface is dated 1879, presumably a reflection of the amount of time that it took to bring this magnificent work into print. The text begins with a general study of Japanese Art, then a specific essay on Japanese Ceramics, followed by essays on Hizen Wares, Satsuma Faience, Kioto Wares, Kaga Wares, and Owari Wares, followed by a list of examples, linking each type to a number of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edgar Allan Poe
Edinburgh: Adam & Charles Black, 1875. This is the increasingly rare and highly desirable Ingram Edition of Edgar Allan Poe. Printed in 1874 - 1875. This set is complete. This set has wear as described in the condition paragraph in the listing below. This is a gorgeous antiquarian set of poe, bound in the original leather bindings. THE COMPLETE WORKS OF EDGAR ALLAN POE! Bound in the original leather bindings. Edited by John Ingram. With A Memoir. This is the FIRST EDITION of 'The Ingram Edition' of Poe. Printed in 1874 - 1875. Complete in 4-Volumes. Illustrated with frontisplates. This is the FIRST EDITION of John Ingram's edition of Edgar Allan Poe. J. H. Ingram dedicated himself to the resurrection of Poe's reputation, maligned by the dubious memoirs of Rufus Wilmot Griswold; he published the first reliable biography of the author (included in this set) and a four volume collection of his works. ________________________ Rescuing Poe's reputation, both personal and literary, from the clutches of Griswold became the self-imposed mission of a single-minded Englishman named John Henry Ingram (1842-1916). Beginning in 1874, his sympathetic memoir of Poe began to replace the malicious one that had been written by R. W. Griswold. Although it had intermitant competition from memoirs written by W. F. Gill, R. H. Stoddard, E. L. Didier, and others, Ingram's memoir was the one most widely reprinted, appearing in various forms throughout the remainder of the 19th century.

[Cuba]. [Slavery]
Guanabacoa, 1875. Good.. Manuscript broadside, 8.25 x 12 inches. Previously folded; light wear along old folds, two short separations at lower edge. A few small wormholes, minimally affecting text. Contemporary ink stamps. Light tanning and dampstaining. A brief, but detailed list of Chinese slaves in an area east of Havana, Cuba, composed during 1875. The list comprises six slaves on one street in the township of Guanabacoa, across the harbor from Havana, and was created for submission to a census of the island's population. It provides their names, origins, ages, status and their "dueños," i.e. owners, a somewhat uncommon designation, as opposed to "patron." References to the Chinese men on this list, are still somewhat euphemistic, who are called "Asiaticos colonos" -- Asian settlers. Signed, dated, and stamped by the local magistrate; a nice document of the bureaucracy surrounding slavery in Cuba.

BROCK, Henry Matthew.
*BROCK, Henry Matthew [1875-1960], studied at the Cambridge School of Art and like his brother Charles, contributed to Punch magazine. While Charles Edward Brock painted in oils and was elected a member of the British Institution, H. M. Brock worked in advertising as well as in book illustration. He illustrated Charles Dickens' Great Expectations, and produced four colour plates for a 1935 edition of A Christmas Carol. In addition, Brock was one of seven artists who contributed illustrations to Arthur Conan Doyle's 1909 Sherlock Holmes story His Last Bow. He also provided illustrations for Susan Coolidge's "What Katy Did at Home and at School", published for The Royal Library for Boys and Girls circa 1918. Most of Brock's illustrations were for classic Victorian and Edwardian fiction. He also did a great deal of work for the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company for whom he produced posters and other advertising materials. During his artistic career, H. M. Brock regularly exhibited his drawings and watercolours at the Royal Academy and the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. He became a full member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours in 1907, and joined the newly-formed Society of Graphic Art in 1921. From the 1930s on he worked in comics, drawing "The Mystery of Study 13" for Sparkler (1937), "Breed of the Brudenells" for Knockout (1949), and an adaptation of Lorna Doone for Princess (1960).

[Saadi of Shiraz] Sa'di / Abu-Muhammad Muslih al-Din bin Abdallah Shirazi.
Bombay, In the Printing House Heydari, 1875. Octavo. 252 pages. Hardcover / Contemporary 19th century half leather with marbled paper-covered boards. It is clear from three consecutive little wholes to the bookblock that this version of the Rose Garden was previously bound as a blockbook and rebound in 19th century boards. First 9 and last 7 pages with a faded stain, possibly from the glue of a former wrapper. Otherwise in very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Some occasional manuscript notes in pencil in english. The Gulistan (also transliterated as Golestan „The Rose Garden") is a landmark of Persian literature, perhaps its single most influential work of prose. Written in 1258 CE, it is one of two major works of the Persian poet Sa'di, considered one of the greatest medieval Persian poets. It is also one of his most popular books, and has proved deeply influential in the West as well as the East. The Gulistan is a collection of poems and stories, just as a rose-garden is a collection of roses. It is widely quoted as a source of wisdom. The well-known aphorism still frequently repeated in the western world, about being sad because one has no shoes until one meets the man who has no feet „whereupon I thanked Providence for its bounty to myself" is from the Gulistan. The minimalist plots of the Gulistan's stories are expressed with precise language and psychological insight, creating a „poetry of ideas“ with the concision of mathematical formulas. The book explores virtually every major issue faced by humankind, with both an optimistic and a subtly … [Click Below for Full Description]
