        Harpyopsis Novae Guineae [New Guinea Eagle]

      Taylor and Francis for Henry Sotheran & Co, London 1875 - A beautiful print from Gould's "Birds of New Guinea and the adjacent Papuan islands, including many new species recently discovered in Australia." This plate is from one of Gould's most exotic works, The Birds of New Guinea , which consists of an extensive series of beautiful plates of birds of paradise, bower birds, parrots, parakeets, cockatoos, kingfishers, and hawk-owls. It is his last full-scale work. Gould prepared the first twelve of the twenty-five parts, and the work was finished posthumously by Sharpe. A broadside "Address to the Subscribers" of The Birds of New Guinea issued by Sotheran and Co. announced: "With respect.to the Birds of New Guinea , we have the pleasure to announce that, having purchased the entire stock and copyrights of Mr. Gould's Magnificent series of Works, we have made immediate preparations for completing those left unfinished; and having retained the services of Mr. Gould's entire staff of artists and colourists, we are confident that the work will be as well performed as during the life of the Author. Mr. Hart.will superintend the whole of the illustrations as heretofore; while the letterpress will be edited by Mr. Bowdler Sharpe, of the British Museum, whose name will be sufficient assurance that nothing will be wanting in this department." Anker 181; Fine Bird Books (1990), p.102; Nissen, IVB, 373; Sauer, 27; Wood, p.365; Zimmer, pp.262-263. Hand-coloured lithograph by Gould and William Hart, printed by the Mintern Brothers. Very good condition.

        The Jummoo and Kashmir Territories: A Geographical Account

      Edward Stanford, London 1875 - Rare 1st edition, of which the 1877 book 'The Northern Barrier of India' is an abridgement. Has 568 pp. incl. index; many illustrations including 4 Woodbury-types (an uncommon printing process which makes photographs seem very lucid and 3-dimensional); and in the rear, folding maps; a Snow Map, a Race Map, a Language Map, a Faith Map, a Political Map, chart of 3 Isometric Views, and a chart of 4 Vertical Sections. There is also a folding chart, 'Genealogy of the Rajas of Jummo', to accompany Appendix 6. The binding is 3/4 leather, very worn, and professionally rebacked. The original leather of the spine has been preserved; the title can barely be read. Marbled boards (matching endpapers) rubbed, bookplate on front pastedown. The brittle free endpapers are both breaking at the new hinges. The text is mostly very clean; there are a couple of fingerprints in the margin of the photo, 'Kashmiri Brahmans'. Another photo, 'Dards', has a sm. chipped-off corner. The folding maps have outer edges a bit worn, but otherwise are nice; the Isometric Views have a tear starting at the bottom near the spine; the Vertical Sections is torn and separated at the first fold. Finally, the General Map which is supposed to be in the rear pocket is not present; a 'Map to Accompany the Travels of Captain Abbott', from another book, is there instead (it shows the Caspian Sea and parts of Persia & Afghanistan).

        Illustrations of the Book of Job. With Descriptive Letterpress, and a Sketch of the ArtistÕs Life and Works. By Charles Eliot Norton

      Boston: James R. Osgood, 1875. Large 4to, 79pp., and heliotype facsimiles of the title-page and 21 plates of the original. Original brown cloth stamped in gilt and black, gilt edges, a very good copy. First American edition, one of BlakeÕs earliest appearances in the USA (Roberts in Boston published the Rossetti edition of the Works in 1875). It is also the first reproduction in facsimile of the Book of Job, the first edition to contain commentary, and the first American reproduction of any series of Blake's designs. Norton, who here introduces Blake to an American audience with his preface summing up BlakeÕs life and principle works, notes that he has made Ã’free useÓ of his friend Dante Gabriel RossettiÕs commentary on the plates, which is interleaved with the text here. It is exceptionally scarce: no copy has appeared at auction since 1975, and Essick (Blake in the Marketplace) does not record a copy sold since 1992. Bentley, BB, 422.

        Letter signed, with autograph postscript, to Latimer Clark

      New York 1875 - Gray, Elisha (1835-1901). L.s., with autograph postscript, to Latimer Clark. New York, September 29, 1875. 1 page. 255 x 205 mm. Traces of mounting on verso, some spotting, small tears in left margin (not affecting text). Provenance: Latimer Clark.Elisha Gray, a prolific inventor of telegraph and other electrical devices, was a founder of the firm Barton and Gray, an ancestor of the Western Electric Company. In July 1875 Gray obtained two patents for a system of "electro-harmonic telegraphy" for transmitting musical tones as a means of increasing the number of messages that could be sent over a single wire. This led him to consider the possibility of a device that could transmit speech by wire, and on February 14, 1876, he filed a caveat (a confidential report of an invention not yet fully perfected) for such a device with the United States Patent Office, just hours after the filing of Alexander Graham Bell's patent application for a speaking telephone. Gray's and Bell's patents were later the subject of a bitter infringement battle, which ended with the court's determination that the Bell telephone patents were valid. Although deeply disappointed by this outcome, Gray continued to invent electrical devices, including the "telautograph," an ancestor of the facsimile machine.Gray's letter to Clark reads as follows:I have made an arrangement with Mr. Cyrus Field, by which he purchases one third of all our Patents except that in Great Britain, and of that I propose to transfer to him one third of my own half. We intend taking immediate steps forward pushing forward the sale of rights and instruments, and we are confident that he can render valuable assistance in these efforts.I hope you will at once signify your approval of the sale to him of the share in the English patents.Have you any news to give me or any plans to propose?I remain, Dear Sir, Yours truly, Elisha GrayPS: Please answer care Cyrus W.

        FOUR PAGE HOLOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED. TO COLONEL THEO. F. RODENBOUGH, AUTHOR OF "FROM EVERGLADE TO CANON WITH THE SECOND DRAGOONS."

      1875. 1875 - Palmer was writing to a nervous and agitated Rodenbough, who was concerned with the seemingly poor initial response to his book, which is the history of the Second U.S. Cavalry. The letter was written at Fort Sanders, Wyoming Territory. Innis Newton Palmer, Army Officer (Mar. 30, 1824-Sept. 10, 1900). Born in Buffalo, New York, graduated from West Point in 1846 and assigned to the Mounted Rifles (later the 3rd Cavalry). Beginning at Vera Cruz in 1847, he fought in the Mexican War until the capture of Mexico City, winning two brevets and was seriously wounded. In 1849, he marched overland from Fort Leavenworth to Oregon Territory, serving at Oregon City and Fort Vancouver, then taking part in Indian campaigns in Texas from 1852-54. He transferred to the 2nd Cavalry (which became the 5th) in 1855 and returned to Texas where he served, including taking part in some Indian conflicts, until the Civil War. He ended the Civil War as a brevet Major General of Volunteers and brevet Brigadier General of the Army. Palmer served n the Plains with the 2nd Cavalry as Lieutenant Colonel and Colonel, retiring March 20, 1879, whereafter he divided his time between Washington D.C., and Denver. He died at Chevy Chase, Maryland, and was buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Fort Sanders. 1866-82. Fort John Buford. This four-company post was arranged around a 400- by 235-foot parade ground when first built, then enlarged to a 600- by 500-foot parade when two more companies were assigned to the permanent garrison. Two buildings are left at the site, both of stone for obvious reasons: guardhouse and magazine. I-80 cuts right across the parade ground south of the city of Laramie. From the downtown area, take US 287 south 2 miles. A stone marker is at the junction of the highway and a dirt road which leads to the guardhouse ruins, 100 yards east. The magazine is on the other side of the interstate highway in front of the Laramie Country Club clubhouse. The letter reads as follows: [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Trogon Aurantius (Orange Breasted Trogon)

      London 1875 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor, from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. Gould became the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain, creating over three thousand plates of birds in over forty volumes. Gould conceived of a specialized monograph on the trogons as a complimentary volume to his book on the toucans. The two highly colorful species were the only birds for which he created monographs, dedicated to one sort of bird rather than those of a particular geographical area. “A Monograph of the Trogons” was published from 1858-1875, and contains forty-seven hand colored lithographs. Gould's illustrations for the Trogons are some of the most magnificent that the ornithologist ever produced. This folio size, hand-colored lithograph, Trogon Aurantius, measures 21.5" x 14.75" and is in mint condition. This expertly hand-colored lithograph illustrated trogons commonly called Orange-breasted Trogons. The male is shown in the foreground with a vibrant yellow-orange underbelly and a brilliantly colored blue head. The female in the background has a similarly colored underbelly with a gray head. Their wings and tail feathers are accented in white and black patterns. The precise lines give each feather of these birds and their plumage great detail and definition. The Organe-breasted Trogons are perched on branches among vibrantly colored and well detailed flowers and leaves.

        Map of the Comstock Lode and the Washoe Mining Claims in Storey & Lyon Counties, Nevada. Compiled from Official Surveys and other reliable data by T.D. Parkinson, C.E.

      San Francisco: G.T. Brown & Co. 1875 - Grafton Tyler BROWN & Co. Map of the Comstock Lode and the Washoe Mining Claims in Storey & Lyon Counties, Nevada. Compiled from Official Surveys and other reliable data by T.D. Parkinson, C.E. San Francisco: G.T. Brown & Co., 1875. Lithograph map, with Original Hand Color, 26 x 32 inches, in Very Good Condition, some repaired tears at folds, some minor creasing, but overall highly attractive, accompanied by original gilt-cloth wallet. A VERY RARE AND VISUALLY STRIKING MAP OF THE COMSTOCK LODE, THE MINING SENSATION THAT MADE NEVADA THE SILVER STATE, LITHOGRAPHED BY CALIFORNIA'S FIRST PROFESSIONAL AFRICAN-AMERICAN ARTIST. This scarce map is one of the most important depictions of the Comstock Lode, the greatest silver discovery in American history. In 1857 the Gosh brothers discovered silver on the eastern flank of Mount Davidson, a peak in the Sierra Nevada, in what was then the western part of Utah Territory. However, news of the find did not remain a secret for long, and once the unprecedented magnitude of the silver deposits was confirmed, beginning in 1859, thousands of would-be miners and profiteers began flowing into this remote region. Virginia City, nicknamed the ‘richest town in America’ grew to a population of 15,000 overnight. Over the next twenty years an estimated $400 million worth of silver was extracted from the area. The Comstock phenomenon led directly to the creation of Nevada and its admission into the Union as a state in 1864, and buoyed the economy of San Francisco in the wake of the Gold Rush. The present map depicts the numerous, sometimes overlapping, mining claims, which seem to dance across a conventional map of the environs of Virginia City area in a resplendent pageant of original hand-color. The names of the variously colored claims such as “City of Melbourne”, “Buckeye”, “Alamo” and “Thames” allude to the fact that the Comstock Lode attracted prospectors from all over the world. Traversing the upper portion of the map is the cross-section of the Sutro Tunnel, the marvelous engineering feat conceived by Adolph Sutro, the future mayor of San Francisco. The tunnel was commenced in 1869 and finished in 1878, and it ensured that the mines, which were plagued by flooding, could be systematically drained, greatly extending the yield and longevity of the operations. This striking map was produced by the workshop of Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918), who is generally regarded to have been California’s first professional African-American artist. As a teenager, Brown migrated from his native Pennsylvania to San Francisco, where he found work at respected lithography firm of Kuchel & Dresel. On the back of his great talent, Brown rose quickly from an apprentice to master lithographer, and was notably responsible for creating the first lithographic view of Virginia City. In 1867, Brown bought the company and renamed it Grafton Tyler Brown & Co. The present map was one of the most impressive works produced by this enterprise, while the numerous views he printed for The Illustrated History of San Mateo County (1878) rank as some of the most important early depictions of the region now know as Silicon Valley. Through the 1880s, Brown dedicated his time to travelling the Pacific Northwest and Mountain West finding inspiration for his magnificent landscape paintings. He eventually settled in St. Paul Minnesota where he became a draughtsman to the Army Corps of Engineers. Brown’s story is truly inspirational, as it shows that an African American man, by way of great talent and industry could overcome what must have been awesome racial prejudice to become on of the leading artists of the American West.
