        Lower Grand Canyon near Kaibab

      F.S. Dellenbaugh, 1875. AN OIL PAINTING OF THE LOWER GRAND CANYON, NEAR KAIBAB Oil on canvas laid on board Board size: 16" x 14" Frame size: 20 5/8" x 18 ½" Signed: F.S. Dellenbaugh Inscribed indistinctly: . . . zona Dated: Nov. 1875 Provenance: Collection of Edward Eberstadt & Sons Born in McConnelsville, Ohio, in 1853, Frederic Dellenbaugh (1853-1935) became interested in landscape painting and mapmaking at an early age. At eighteen, he was skilled enough to be chosen for the second John Wesley Powell expedition down the Colorado River. On the expedition he served as both artist and as assistant mapmaker, and he began his life-long habit of keeping a daily journal of his travels. Overshadowed by Powell's spectacular first voyage down the Colorado and Green rivers, the second expedition was important in that it mapped the great river and provided scientific data invaluable to the understanding of the geology of the Colorado Plateau. This fascinating oil painting, almost abstract in its rendering, was most probably inspired by what Dellenbaugh saw on the Powell expedition. . Book.

        Buffalo Dance

      Chatto & Windus, London 1875 - A fine image from Catlin's 'North American Indian Portfolio', one of the most important accounts of Native American life. This "group, though not strictly a hunting scene, is so closely allied as to be often considered by the Indians indispensable to their success. Amongst. [the Indians], the success of their hunts and wars is often attributed to the strict observance of several propitiatory modes of singing and dancing to the Great (or other) Spirit; soliciting his countenance, and promising to give to him, (which they always do,) by sacrificing, the choicest pieces of the animal slain in their hunts. The. songs sung on these occasions are exceedingly curious, and called Medicine (Mystery) Songs. All tribes have their medicine songs peculiar for the hunting of each animal they choose to go in pursuit of, and by singing these songs they conciliate the. invisible deity or spirit presiding over these animals' respective destinies, and who must necessarily be consulted in this way." Catlin summarized the Native American as "an honest, hospitable, faithful, brave, warlike, cruel, revengeful, relentless, -- yet honourable, contemplative and religious being." In a famous passage from the preface of his North American Indian Portfolio , Catlin describes how the sight of several tribal chiefs in Philadelphia led to his resolution to record their way of life: "the history and customs of such a people, preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy of the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life shall prevent me from visiting their country and becoming their historian". He saw no future for either their way of life or their very existence, and with these thoughts always at the back of his mind he worked, against time, setting himself a truly punishing schedule, to record what he saw. From 1832 to 1837 he spent the summer months sketching the tribes and then finished his pictures in oils during the winter. The record he left is unique, both in its breadth and also in the sympathetic understanding that his images constantly demonstrate. A selection of the greatest of images from this record were published in the North American Indian Portfolio in an effort to reach as wide an audience as possible. The present image is one of the results of this publishing venture and is both a work of art of the highest quality and a fitting memorial to a vanished way of life.

Fine condition.An English translation of ?History of the Civil War in America? by the Count of Paris (Philadelphia: Joseph H. Coates & Co. 1875) had just been published. General Joseph E. Johnston comments, in part, ?I have looked at so much of the Count of Paris?s book as relates to my operations ?" and can not imagine why he sent it to me. Certainly not in compliment. No party electioneering newspaper is less candid. He calls Genl Beauregard ?commander-in-chief, in writing of the Battles of Manassas; although it is evident that he has read my official report.

        The Movements and Habits of Climbing Plants

      London: John Murray,, 1875. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, frames to boards in blind, dark brown endpapers. Foscarini bookplate to front pastedown. Extremities a touch rubbed, spine ends slightly bumped, text block strained in a few places but still firm. Otherwise an excellent copy. First edition in book form, styled "Second Edition Revised" as it was revised and enlarged from a paper published in the Journal of the Linnean Society in 1865. "In the autumn of 1864 I finished a long paper on Climbing Plants, and sent it to the Linnean Society. The writing of this paper cost me four months: but I was so unwell when I received the proof-sheets that I was forced to leave them very badly and often obscurely expressed. The paper was little noticed, but when in 1875 it was corrected and published as a separate book it sold well" (Darwin, Life and Letters, p.75).

        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:

        Holy Land Pictures

      London: W. Mansell,, 1875. Landscape quarto (270 × 384 mm). Black half morocco, matching pebble-grained cloth, raised bands, gilt, title gilt to front board, thick and thin gilt rules, white moiré-effect endpapers, gilt edges. 50 original albumen prints (159 ×235 mm), letter-press title, and captions on mounts, images mounted rectos, one per page. A little rubbed, and with some silverfish damage to the cloth, some foxing to the endpapers and to a few of the mounts, but overall very good, the photographs remaining strong and with good contrast. Attractive album publication of images from Palestine, Syria and Lebanon taken by one of Francis Frith's closest associates. No copies recorded by COPAC or OCLC, just two copies at auction in the last 50 years. Frank Mason Good (1839 - 1928) first travelled to Egypt as Francis Frith's assistant in late 1857. He subsequently made four photographic tours of the Middle East on his own behalf. His first trip was made in 1866-7, taking in Greece Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Alexandria, Suez and Petra, a series of his views being published by Frith who had essentially underwritten the trip. The second trip was to Egypt during 1868-9, and the third, 1871-2 included Egypt, Constantinople and Malta. This album is drawn from his fourth and final tour of 1875, and during which he visited Palestine, Syria and Lebanon and, despite the inevitable Christian bias, contains views of sites sacred to the three Abrahamic religions including; Bethlehem, the Garden of Gethsemane, Church of the Holy Sepulchre; the Wailing Wall, Rachel's' Tomb, the Torah Scroll at Shecem; and the mosques of Al-Aksa and Omar. Also several images of the ruins at Baalbec and Palmyra. Good joined the Photographic Society in 1864, in 1880 serving as a judge of its annual exhibition. He is probably best known for his Near Eastern stereograph series, but it is very likely that many notable images of the region from the 60s and 70s previously credited to Frith, should in fact be attributed to Good (see Phoenix,"Preparing an Acquisition Report for the Portfolio, F. Frith's Photo-Pictures of the Lands of the Bible Illustrated by Scripture Words" Ryerson University, theses and dissertations. Paper 1181, 2008). In his later career Good became well known as a garden photographer.

        North American Indians

      Chatto & Windus, London 1875 - Lithograph, hand-coloured, by McGahey after Catlin. Wove paper, cut to the edge of the image and mounted on card, as issued, within an ink-ruled frame. A fine image from Catlin's 'North American Indian Portfolio', one of the most important accounts of Native American life. Catlin here combines three distinct portraits for the introductory plate to his North American Indian Portfolio which otherwise details hunting scenes and other aspects of Indian life. As Catlin writes: "The group in Plate 1 is composed of three Portraits from my Collection, representing three different tribes of various latitudes, and well illustrating a number of the leading characteristics of this interesting part of the human family." All three figures, an Osage Warrior, an Iroquois, and a Pawnee woman, are shown in modes of dress and ornamentation for cool weather, exhibiting the characteristic differences of the various tribes. Catlin summarized the Native American as "an honest, hospitable, faithful, brave, warlike, cruel, revengeful, relentless, -- yet honourable, contemplative and religious being." In a famous passage from the preface of his North American Indian Portfolio , Catlin describes how the sight of several tribal chiefs in Philadelphia led to his resolution to record their way of life: "the history and customs of such a people, preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy of the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life shall prevent me from visiting their country and becoming their historian". He saw no future for either their way of life or their very existence, and with these thoughts always at the back of his mind he worked, against time, setting himself a truly punishing schedule, to record what he saw.

        British Battles on Land and Sea.

      London, Paris, and New York: Cassell Petter & Galpin, [c. 1875]. - 8vo., (10 ½ x 7 ¾ inches). (Title page of vol. III a bit spotted). 12 full-page wood-engraved maps; 133 full-page wood engravings; numerous in-text illustrations; wood-engraved frontispieces (one or two spots). Half tan calf, maroon pebbled cloth, the smooth spine attractively decorated with fine gilt tools, with a red morocco gilt lettering piece (scuffed with one or two surface abrasions). First edition. A profusely illustrated military history of England. "Grant's father had served with distinction throughout the Peninsular War, and after his wife's death he obtained a command in Newfoundland; he sailed there in 1833, taking with him his three sons. After spending six years in North American barracks James returned home with his father, who had resigned his command. In 1840 James was appointed ensign in the 62nd foot regiment, based at Chatham; he was soon afterwards appointed commander of the depot, but in 1843 he resigned his commission and entered an architect's office in Edinburgh. He became a skilled draughtsman, but at this time he began to show a literary bent, and devoted himself to novel writing. "Grant's first novel was his four-volume Romance of War (1845), describing adventures of the Gordon Highlanders in the Peninsula, based on anecdotes related to him by his father. It enjoyed enormous sales, but produced only £20 for its author. In 1846 he published a sequel, The Highlanders in Belgium. The Adventures of an Aide-de-Camp (1848) equalled the popularity of his first novel. It was followed by Jane Seton (1853) and The Yellow Frigate (1855), and from this point on Grant produced at least one novel per year, including a number based on Scottish history. Their appeal was based on a quick succession of incident, vivacity of style, and convincing dialogue. Grant married Christian Macdonald, the eldest daughter of James Browne, and had two sons: James (who predeceased him) and Roderick. In 1852 he founded and acted as secretary to the National Association for the Vindication of Scottish Rights, upholding its principles in spite of the mockery of Punch and other English newspapers. He was an energetic supporter of the volunteer movement, and was one of the first to join its ranks. He was consulted frequently by the War Office as an authority on military matters, and many of his suggestions were adopted. In 1875 he converted to Roman Catholicism, his son Roderick having become a Roman Catholic priest. "In addition to fifty-six novels, Grant wrote widely on history, including Memoirs of Montrose (1851), British Battles on Land and Sea (1873), an Illustrated History of India (1876), and Old and New Edinburgh (1880). His last works of fiction were Playing with Fire (1887), a topical novel based on the war in the Sudan, and Love's Labour Won (1888), set in Burma. By the 1880s his popularity had declined, and he died in relative poverty on 5 May 1887." (M. G. Watkins for DNB).

        REPORT OF AN EXPEDITION UP THE YELLOWSTONE RIVER, MADE IN 1875

      Government Printing Office, 1875., 1875. First edition. 8vo. Printed wrappers, 17 pp., illustrated, plates, large folding map. General Sheridan sent a letter of instructions to Lt. Colonel Forsyth with very specific details of what he wanted accomplished on this expedition. In part he states, "I want a careful examination made of the south bank of the Yellowstone and the mouths and immediate valleys of the rivers coming in from the Black Hills, and especially those of Tongue River, Rosebud, and Big Horn, and if you go higher up the Yellowstone, the Big Rosebud, giving an account of the timber, soil, and geological formation, also the depth of the water in a general way, and the character of any rapids passed over above the mouth of Powder River. Make your examination as complete as possible, without any unnecessary detention of the boat, and return from any point when, in your best judgment, there is not sufficient water, or any other obstacles to impede your progress. It may be necessary, at some time in the immediate future, to occupy by a military force the country in and about the mouths of Tongue River and the Big Horn. You will, therefore, make a special examination of these points with this view." Forsyth provides a day-by-day narration of his expedition from Fort Buford up the Yellowstone, supplemented by the report of Lt. Col. Grant. There are five plates by Thomas G. Townsend that depict the Powder River, mouth of the Yellowstone, mouth of the Big Horn, Castle Rocks, and Pryor's Creek. The large folding map is titled YELLOWSTONE RIVER FROM THE MOUTH OF POWDER RIVER TO THE HEAD OF NAVIGATION, drawn by 2nd Lt. Richard E. Thompson. Some professional restoration to spine, with the folding map that has been professionally reinforced on verso at folds, else a very good, clean copy of a very scarce and important report.

The road closely follows the 32nd parallel of latitude and the distance by this route from Fort Worth to San Francisco is 1,851 miles. To San Diego or the Gulf of California would be several hundred miles less, and it is claimed that this is the shortest practicable route to the Pacific coast.

        [Binding title (also at the head of each plate):] Nil-Album.

      [Vienna, Leopold Sommer and Comp., Anna Lynker and Conrad Greve, , ca. 1875]. Oblong Imperial 1mo (53.4 x 70 cm). Album with 32 chromolithographed plates (26 measuring 25 x 35.5 cm; 6 measuring 36.5 x 60.5), mounted on paperboard leaves, each leaf with lithographed title "Nil-Album" (above), and caption, imprint and note that they were painted from life by Anna Lynker (30) or Hans Sattler (2). All chromolithorgraphed by Conrad Greve. Printed by various Viennese printers: K.K. Hof- und Staatsdruckerei, E. Köke, M. Fein, Conrad Greve, Leopold Sommer and Comp. and Johann Haupt. [32] chromolithographed plates. Contemporary red half goatskin morocco, textured-cloth sides, the front board with the title "Nil-Album" (on the spine "Nil Album") in gold, watered-silk pattern endpapers.. An extraordinary and extremely rare album with breath-taking colour-printed views of Egypt and Nubia, made after watercolours painted from life at the sites. We have located only one other copy, and it has fewer plates than the present copy. Although there is no title-page, each plate and the contemporary binding have the title "Nil-Album" (Nile album). The plates show a dozen ancient Egyptian temples, the pyramids at Gisa, the two famous colossal statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III at Thebes (the Colossi of Memnon), and other ancient sites, some with hieroglyphic inscriptions. While the colour views of these sites as they were ca. 1870 would be of the greatest importance by themselves, the present album provides much more. These are not mere archaeological sites showing dead ruins, but views of living Egypt, with several mosques, merchants and others operating boats and rafts on the Nile, men smoking (both a straight clay pipe and a waterpipe) in a coffee house with children and a cat, four or five tubaned musicians performing while topless women dance, men hauling water at the Nile, a street scene with a camel and fully laden donkeys, a busy street scene in Cairo (also with a man smoking a pipe) and much more, as well as landscapes and riverscapes. Thirty of the original paintings were made by Viennese landscape painter Anna Lynker (1834-post 1909: some sources say 1893), who moved to the Middle East soon after completing her studies in Graz, Karlsruhe and Dusseldorf around 1865 and remained there to at least 1877, painting in watercolours and oils. Some of her paintings were brought back to Europe before she returned herself, so the present set may have been published while she was still there. The other two were painted by Hubert Sattler (1817-1904) from Salzburg, who painted in Egypt in the 1840s and 1850s. The production of the chromolithographs was overseen by the artist Conrad Grefe (1823-1907) for Leopold Sommer (1812-1880), whose firm traded as Leopold Sommer & Comp from 1868 to 1877 or possibly later. The only copy of the present series of prints that we have located is Staatsbibliothek in Munich and contains 30 plates. - Some spotting, a few leaves with marginal restorations, inner hinges reinforced, binding slichtly chafed and the joints slightly cracked, otherwise in very good condition. - WorldCat (1 copy, 30 plates only); for Lynker: http://www.ng-slo.si/en/exhibitions/exibition-or-project/revelations-september-2013?id=1523; for Sommer: http://www.biographien.ac.at/oebl/oebl_S/Sommer_Leopold_1812_1880.xml.

        Description of the Living and Extinct Races of Gigantic Land Tortoises, Parts I & II. Introduction, and the Tortoises of the Galapagos Islands. Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, 1875, Biological Sciences 165: PP. 251-284

      VERY SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST SYSTEMATIC SURVEY OF GIANT TORTOISES by Albert Gunther of the British Museum, complete with 13 accompanying plates. Gunther was "the first to dispel the notion that there was only one giant tortoise species in the whole world. There are, he stated, two general populations of giant tortoise: one restricted to the Indian Ocean islands, the other to the Galapagos Islands. The morphological distinctions between the two populations are clear. Never again should the world's giant tortoise population be referred to under the single name of Testudo indica… [Gunther also stated] that within the tortoise populations of the Indian Ocean and Galapagos Islands, it was possible to detect a number of distinctive species… Gunter had divided the once all-encompassing nomenclature of Testudo indica into at least eight species, three in the Indian Ocean and five in the Galapagos" (Chambers, A Sheltered Life: The Unexpected History of the Giant Tortoise, 137). "Gunther's 1875 monograph was to be the foundation for a new era of research on giant tortoises. He had stamped out some of the myths that had been rattling around the scientific community for over half a century. Because of his careful observations and measurements, there could now be no doubt that the giant tortoises were more diverse and endemic than anyone, other than perhaps Darwin, had hitherto expected" (ibid). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Taylor and Francis. Entire volume. Large 4to. 12 x 9.75 inches (300 x 244mm). [12], 315 pages, [52 plates], 4. Ex-libris bearing only a bookplate on the front flyleaf and a light stamp on the title page. No spine markings whatsoever. Illustration: 52 plates, many of which fold out. 13 of the plates pertain to the Gunther paper -- all in magnificent condition. Binding: Recently and handsomely rebound in half calf over the original marbled paper boards. 5 raised bands at the spine; two black morocco labels, each gilt-lettered. Tightly and exceptionally solidly bound. Interior: Complete. Slight light spotting to the tilte page. Apart from this, remarkably clean and bright throughout. It is very unusual for the interior of a Phil Trans volume of this era to be so pristine.

Erste komplette Ausgabe von Thünens Hauptwerk, weswegen er von Roscher als der "größte exakte Volkswirt der Deutschen" bezeichnet wurde. - Thünen (1783-1850), ein Schüler Thaers, gilt als der eigentliche Begründer der Landwirtschaftslehre auf nationalökonomischen Prinzipien. Er schuf ein abstraktes Modell ("Isolierer Staat"), von dem er seine Gesetze ableitete. Seine Methode stand der angelsächsischen Klassik nahe und konträr zum Historismus. Er arbeitete experimentell (auf seinem Gut Tellow), schuf und prüfte theoretische Modelle. "He expressed his ideas verbally, arithmetically and in algebraic terms, also making some use of calculus. He developed an exact theory of marginal productivity and applied the theory to questions of production and distribution" (Blaug). Zu Lebzeiten kaum gewürdigt, gilt er heute als einer der bedeutendsten Ökonomen in der ersten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts. - Die EA des ersten Bandes erschien 1826, eine 2. Auflage dieses Bandes 1842. Die erste Abtlg. des 2. Bandes erschien 1850, noch zu Lebzeiten Thünens. Die 2. Abtlg. von Band 2 und der Band 3 erschienen dann 1863 posthum.

        A superb photograph of Ulysses S. Grant with his wife Julia and her father, Frederick Dent, Long Branch, New Jersey, circa 1873

      A large mounted albumen photograph, 10" x 8", by Pach Bros., New York, titled "GEN. GRANT AND FRIENDS / AT HIS COTTAGE BY THE SEA, 1875 [sic]". Shows Grant seated with his wife Julia, and her father, Col. Frederick Dent, in front of their summer cottage in Long Branch, New Jersey. Back layer of mount removed, photo service stamps and inked notations on verso, creased and chipped at corners, horizontal crease and small tear at bottom margin do little to detract from the overall presentation. A superb photograph of President Grant seated with his wife and his father-in-law Frederick Fayette Dent (1786-1873), together with what appear to be other members of the Dent family. The photographer misidentified the year as 1875 (an impossibility considering that Frederick Dent died in December 1873). Already advanced in years, Frederick Fayette Dent became part of the Grant household in 1864 . A staunch Democrat, Dent looked askance at his son-in-law's radical politics, and never concealed his politi

Quarto, with frontispiece portrait, colour plates (13 tinted lithograph and four handcoloured), maps and charts (one folding); a very good copy in contemporary half morocco. A landmark work on New Guinea, particularly Geelvink Bay of West Irian. Rosenberg travelled widely through several parts of the East-Indies between 1840-1870; on his arrival in Indonesia he became assistant to Franz Junghuhn at Padang. He explored extensively in Sumatra, the Moluccas, and certain regions of Teluk Cendrawasih (Geelvink Bay) of West Irian. This is one of Rosenberg's best known publications, containing beautiful plates. He concentrates mainly on the natural environment of the regions that he describes, but also includes special sections on the people and their customs.
