        THE EARLY COINS OF AMERICA; AND THE LAWS GOVERNING THEIR ISSUE. COMPRISING ALSO DESCRIPTIONS OF THE WASHINGTON PIECES, THE ANGLO-AMERICAN TOKENS, MANY PIECES OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN, OF THE SEVENTEENTH AND EIGHTEENTH CENTURIES, AND THE FIRST PATTERNS OF THE UNITED STATES MINT

      Published by the Author, Boston 1875 - 4to [29 by 24 cm], somewhat later black half morocco, with dark green cloth sides; flat spine ruled, decorated and lettered in gilt; all page edges speckled. (2), v, (5), (11)-381, (1) pages; 110 wood engravings in the text; 2 folding heliotype manuscript facsimiles; 10 fine heliotype plates of coins and tokens with original tissue guards. Folding manuscript facsimile separated at fold; slightly trimmed. Near fine. Arguably the best and certainly the most enduring work on American numismatics ever written. Sylvester Sage Crosby began gathering information for his magnum opus in the late 1860s. Nominally the head of a committee of six appointed by the New England Numismatic and Archaeological Society to publish a work on early American coinage, he soon found himself alone in that pursuit. Not only was the research and composition of the work done almost entirely by Crosby, ultimately he also had to publish it. "It is truly the keystone to any library of American coinage." -- Eric P. Newman. State with overprinted coin numbers on Plates IV and V. Coin 15a on Plate VII hand-numbered in pencil, apparently as always. Without the handwritten correction, often seen, to Miss Eliza Susan Quincy's name in the subscribers' list on page 381. Attinelli 105. Clain-Stefanelli 12115*. Davis 291. Grierson 218. Sigler 603.

        Cabinet Card of Annie Hindle, America's First Male Impersonator.

      Thomas Houseworth & Co. [ca. 1875], San Francisco - Original cabinet photograph on Houseworth mount measuring 6 3/4 x 4 1/4 inches. One of the series "Houseworth's Celebrities". A few specks but very good image.In researching this item we can find no record of this Houseworth image. We also find that the most common image of Hindle is a line drawing taken, ironically, from this very image. We were able to locate only one other photographic image of Hindle but in that one she is quite old. A very rare survival of this key LGBT image."Annie Hindle was the first woman to gain significant attention as a male impersonator in the United States, and most likely introduced this performance style to the American variety stage. In 1891, the New York Sun declared that she was "the first out-and-out 'male impersonator' the New York stage had ever seen." Born in England in the mid- to late-1840s, and adopted by Mrs. Ann Hindle, Annie Hindle arrived in the United States in late August 1868. According to the New York Sun, Hindle had been active on the provincial English and London music hall stages since the age of five.Hindle performed on the American variety stage from 1868 to 1886, and during this time she was rarely idle.Hindle's career began to decline in the early 1880s and ended in 1886, when she married for the third time. Hindle's first marriage had been to the character and ballad singer Charles Vivian, the founder of the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks in America, which was originally a theatrical fraternity. The couple married in 1868 but after six weeks they parted ways. Hindle and Vivian did not divorce, and Hindle later claimed he had abused her. In 1878 the Clipper reported that she had married the minstrel performer W. W. Long, but no confirmation of this event has been found. If this marriage did occur, it is likely that it was a marriage of convenience for Hindle, as she did not ever perform, live, or travel with Long. Hindle's third marriage took place in Grand Rapids, Michigan, while she was leading her own troupe on a tour through the Midwest. A local Baptist minister married Hindle and her dresser Annie Ryan one evening after Hindle's performance. Hindle gave her name as Charles and dressed in male clothing while her bride wore her traveling gown. Gilbert Sarony, a female impersonator in Hindle's troupe, acted as best man and a local bank clerk, presumably pulled in off the street, was Hindle's second witness. This marriage, which was discovered almost immediately, caused a stir in Grand Rapids and was also reported in the Clipper as well as in the scandal sheet National Police Gazette. Both papers declared that Hindle was really a man and her career as a male impersonator was ended. Upon the collapse of her variety troupe in the wake of the marriage, Hindle and her wife retired to her home in Jersey City, New Jersey. The two women lived there until Ryan's death in late 1891, both dressing in female clothing. In 1890 Hindle attempted to return to vaudeville. She found small-time bookings and continued to perform into the early twentieth century, though she seems never to have appeared in big-time vaudeville. It is not known when this remarkable woman died." (Gillian Rodger, Encyclopedia of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Culture).

        Das Königl[ich] Württemberg[ische] Haupt- und Landgestüt.

      Marbach, no printer, 1875. - 24 vintage photographs (albumen prints) by Ch. Schmid, Reutlingen, mounted on cardboard with printed captions (c. 487 x 320 mm; images c. 270 x 210 mm to 190 x 137 mm). With 4 pp of letterpress text (folio, green papered spine). Fine set of original photographs showing the Royal Wuerttemberg Stud in Marbach and its famous horses. Owned by Wilhelm, King of Württemberg, Marbach was the first Arabian stud in Europe. From 1852 to 1871 it was directed by Baron Julius von Hügel, who purchased valuable stock from the Egyptian stud of Abbas Pasha, "thus raising it to the highest standard of excellence" (W. R. Brown, The Horse of the Desert, p. 161/166). Hügel was succeeded by Cäsar Paul von Hofacker (1831-96), who issued the present photo series and also composed the accompanying text: the latter discusses the history of the Stud and its horses, including the stallion Sanspareil, son of the Arabian Bajan and bred in 1816; in 1860 another pure-bred Arabian was acquired from the Wuerttemberg Weil Stud. Among the photoportraits are the pure-bred Arabian Zarif, his daughter Zinka, and the stallion Shah. Well-preserved.

        Journey across the Western Interior of Australia. With an Introduction and Additions, by Charles H. Eden. Edited by H.W. Bates

      London: Sampson Low, 1875. Octavo, with frontispiece, plates, a large folding map; with a cancelled library stamp otherwise a good copy in contemporary cloth, gilt. The first edition of Warburton's narrative of his expedition from the Telegraph Line to the west coast which won the race to cross the continent from east to west.Warburton, a retired South Australian Police Commissioner, was funded in his quest by Sir Thomas Elder and Captain Walter William Hughes. En route he benefited enormously from an encounter at Charlotte Waters with Ernest Giles, who showed him his maps and suggested he take an alternate course from the one he had just endured.Although Warburton won the honours of the crossing over Giles and W.C. Gosse, it came at a high cost. In the harsh Great Sandy Desert his expedition deteriorated into an endless search for water. Within a few months half their camels were dead; provisions were low and much of their equipment had been lost. They reached the Oakover River just in time but even here they faced starvation and had to eat camel hide while waiting for help.Indeed, so terrible were the privations that Warburton suffered that he was physically unfit to prepare his journals for publication. The text of Warburton's own journals was edited by H.W. Bates of the Royal Geographical Society, and an historical account of exploration in the western third of the Australian continent was added by Charles Eden. The scientific content was arranged by Professor Owen, Dr Hooker, John Gould and Dr Henry Trimen.

"This is the fullest and at the same time one of the most accurate and revealing of all travel accounts written as a survey of the effects of reconstruction on the South. Fair, unprejudiced, and impartial, King saw almost everything and passed judgements without fear or favor. He reached the general conclusion that the time had come to put an end to political reconstruction and to permit the Southern people to resume full control of state governments in the South. He felt that such a policy would promote the social and economic progress of the region." ~ Thomas D. Clark.

        King Leopold II of Belgium signs a letter of state announcing the birth of his nephew, Prince Albert, later King Albert I. Leopold was considered one of the most brutal colonial rulers of all time for his policies in the Congo, in contrast to Albert, who spent all of World War I at the head of his army, and led the Allied offensive that recovered the Belgian coast

Folds, one inch tear in blank left margin, light marginal soiling, else fine condition.Leopold II, King of the Belgians, succeeded his father [Leopold I of Belgium] to the throne in 1865 and remained king until his death. Outside of Belgium, he is chiefly remembered as the founder and sole owner of the Congo Free State, a secret private enterprise scheme to extract rubber and ivory which was responsible for the death of an estimated 5-15 million Africans. King Albert I, born Albert Leopold Clément Marie Meinrad in Brussels, was the younger son of Philip, Count of Flanders, and succeeded his uncle, Leopold II of Belgium, on the throne on December 17, 1909. At the beginning of World War I, Albert resisted the German advance and held them off long enough for Britain and France to prepare for the Battle of the Marne (September 6 - 9, 1914). He led his army through the Battle of the Yser and at the end of the war back into its own territory. He re-entered Brussels to a hero's welcome. King Albert I was killed in a climbing accident at Marche-les-Dames, in the Ardennes region of Belgium near Namur."

        The Way We Live Now [Sadleir's copy w/his notes]

      Chapman and Hall, 1875, Hardcover, Book Condition: Near Fine, First editionA Very Good + copy (expert repair to the spine cloth of one volume executed by the Heritage Bindery, rubbing at the extremities, small tear and tape repair to rear free endpaper of Volume 1) of a wonderful novel which proved Trollope's continuing power as a novelist amid talk that his powers were waning. The book tells the story of the rise and fall of the fictional stock market manipulator, Augustus Melmotte -- and its effect on his daughter's options for marriage. The tale is an excellent social satire which Walpole deemed to be one of the most remarkable of all English novels published between 1860 and 1890. The story remains vibrant and has currency even today. This is the copy of the famed collector and Trollope bibliographer, Michael Sadleir, WITH SADLEIR'S HANDWRITTEN NOTES IN PENCIL ON THE REAR ENDPAPERS OF EACH VOLUME. The book wears Sadleir's lion bookplate as well as the bookplate famed collector Barton Currie. This is, quite simply, THE copy for the Trollope collector to have. MICHAEL SADLEIR'S (AND BARTON CURRIE'S) COPY, WITH MICHAEL SADLEIR'S HANDWRITTEN NOTES ON THE REAR FREE ENDPAPERS OF EACH VOLUME. An excellent opportunity for the Trollope collector to distinguish his or her collection.

"This little work makes no pretensions to literary merit. It was written, by the author, at intervals snatched from his other occupations as a farmer...

Contains the following five essays: As long as America is so heavily indebted to European Nations it will be impossible to have a good and uniform currency upon a gold basis; Specie-based currency with the shackles of gold redemption and the national bank system are anti-republican and dangerous to human liberty; A second system of paper money freed from the shackles of specie redemption and based upon the faith of the nation; How contraction and gold redemption will affect the debtors and tax-payers; Industry and productions stimulated by a greater volume of currency.
