"The edition was aimed at a wider public and printed in smaller type ... giving the general impression of a cheap edition, which at 7s. 6d, it was". It is also the first edition of The Origin of Species to feature the word "evolution"; the term was first used by Darwin in The Descent of Man, published in 1871. This edition was subsequently reprinted unchanged from stereos in 1872 and again in 1873. The final issue is dated 1876; stereos of this issue were used for the very many issues which followed, from 1878 to 1929, continuing to include the summary of differences and the historical sketch.

Original green bead-grain cloth neatly rebacked with the original gilt lettered and decorated spine laid down, corners refurbished, blind-panelled covers, brown coated endpapers. Attractive contemporary armorial bookplate of Alfred Crease Coxhead; only slight rubbing to extremities, inner hinges cracked but sound, a few leaves at the beginning with brown staining (probably from a pressed flower). A particularly bright copy. 30 wood-engraved illustrations in the text. First edition, from the first impression of 1,000 copies. "These meticulous studies form a minor contribution to the evolutionary series by the study of the adaptations of such plants to impoverished conditions. The book was published on 2 July 1875, in a standard binding without inserted advertisements. It is stated that 3,000 were printed, of which 2,700 were sold to the trade at once. This cannot be strictly true because both the second and third thousands of the same year stated their thousands on the title pages" (Freeman). Freeman 1217. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Digest of Patents relating to breech-loading and magazine small arms, (except revolvers) granted in the United States from 1836 to 1873, inclusive. Classified and arranged according to the movement of the principal parts for opening and closing the breech

      Washington 1875 - (11 5/8 x 9 inches). 1p. small format errata tipped onto rear pastedown. 780 patent-drawings photo-lithographed (up to ten to a page) on 84 full-page illustrations by N. Peters of Washington. Bound to style in half calf over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, ruled in gilt on each band, lettered direct in the second and fourth compartments Provenance: Allen P. Westcott (Chicago, firearms consultant in legal cases, ink stamp) An important and rare work on American breech loading and small arms, published in a relatively small edition. No copies of this work are listed as having sold at auction, but it was important and rare enough to warrant a facsimile reprint in 1963. On the dust-jacket of that edition it was noted that the "Digest is the only existing compilation of U.S. Patents of breech-loading and repeating small arms . As a means for identifying trial or experimental pieces (usually unmarked on the guns themselves) this reference work is without parallel." The Preface describes the work as follows: "This digest has been prepared from the official records of the United States Patent Office, and with a view to present the subject in a brief yet comprehensive manner, for the information of inventors, manufacturers, attorneys and others interested in the art. It has been the purpose of the compiler to group all patents relating to breech-loading and magazine fire-arms granted in the United States . in such a manner that they may be readily referred to, and the numerous and important improvements made in both sporting and military arms, traced. All inventions . have been classified and arranged according to well-defined characteristics or systems, depending upon the movement of the principal parts for opening and closing the breech. The index of names is an alphabetical-chronological list of inventors, and is the key, in connection with the number or date, by which information . may be obtained from the Patent Office."

        [CIRCUS HISTORY] Fijian cannibals

      Circa 1875. Three albumen print photographs, carte de visite format, 105 x 65 mm, versos with imprint of 'Chas. Eisenmann, Photographer, 229 Bowery, New York', the prints with light rubbing and some very faint foxing, one slightly paler than the other two, the mounts lightly marked but essentially in very good condition. This trio of rare studio portraits shows two different Fijian couples brought to the United States - probably by the circus promoter P.T. Barnum - as sideshow curiosities. They would have been billed as "cannibals" or at the very least, "savages". The New York photographic studio of Charles Eisenmann specialized in portraits and tableaux of exotic subjects such as circus performers, freaks and other human oddities.

        Gold digger and Aborigine, Port Darwin, September 1875

      Albumen print photograph, carte de visite format, 105 x 67 mm, no photographer's imprint; verso with a contemporary inscription in ink: 'Costume of the diggers in P.D. All the gentlemen dress just like they do in Melbourne. Mr. Solomon', and dated in pencil in the same hand 'September 19th 1875'; the albumen print has lost some contrast but is free from foxing, as is the mount. A rare and important photograph taken at the height of the Pine Creek gold rush, illustrating the social relationship between an indigenous man and a white gold digger. Evidently taken by a travelling photographer using a makeshift "studio" on a verandah, with a simple fabric backdrop and a wooden crate for a plinth, this is quite possibly an unrecorded image. The photographer was perhaps 'Mr. Solomon', the author of the inscription on the back of the carte de visite which was clearly written for the benefit of someone in Melbourne.

        Le livre-joujou.

      Paris (Imprimerie de Ducessios), Louis Janet (Vve Magnin & Fils), (1875?). Small 8vo (binding: 14,8 x 11,2 cm.). Original full red cloth with gilt title to front board. All edges gilt. Very neatly rebacked. A splendid copy, with only minor occasional, light brownspotting and nice and bright text-leaves. One leaf of text (pp. 115-16) has had the lower corner torn off, so a part of that text-leaf is missing. Plates are in splendid condition - nice, clean, and crisp -, and all moveable parts present, fully intact and fully workable. XV (including the handcoloured title-page with moveable parts), (1), (137) pp. + 12 magnificent plates in wonderful original hand-colouring and with moveable parts. Incredibly scarce third issue (with the original plates and moveable parts of the first issue) of one of the most important and rarest children's books ever produced, namely the first printed book with pullable parts, sometimes called "the first interactive book". In all, three issues of the work appeared. All three are of the utmost scarcity, as only 20 copies (apart from the present) in all, from either of the three issues are known. And of these 20 copies, at least five are incomplete. Of the three issues, the third is the scarcest, as only two or three other copies apart from the present are known. Two of these are in institutional holdings, and a third, which is possibly the third issue, is in a private collection in Japan. The first issue of the work is thought to have appeared in 1831 and the second around 1837. The three issues are quite easily distinguishable, although some variants appear. The first issue was printed by Doyen, and the second and third by Ducessois. Magnin, the successor of Janet, adopts the name "Veuve Magnin et Fils" in 1867, and the copies that bear this imprint on the title-page thus belong to the third issue. Saint-Alban argues that it was printed in 1875. But the setting seems to be exactly the same as the preceding issue (which has the preliminary leaves reset in comparison to the first issue), and the plates and moveable parts are certainly those of the first issue. Possibly, only the first three leaves (half-title and title-pages) are actually in a new printing, with new publisher and printer, and the rest are the same as the second issue. And possibly, only the 15 first pages differ from the first issue, so that the rest is actually the same printing throughout all the issues. In the introduction to this wonderful book, the author explains to his young readers - whom he addresses directly - that he has invented the present "mechanism" in order to rediscover the magic of the metamorphoses caused by the fairy wands and "to bring into action" the scenes from the history". The book is truly splendid, in both beauty, detail, and innovation. Brès is known as the creator of some of the most beautiful children's books ever produced, accompanied, by wonderful coloured engravings. In the present work, he excelled completely and introduced an entirely new way of creating children's books, which was far ahead of its time. In fact, the kind of interactive book that Brès here introduces, pioneered the interactive books that were to appear in the 1930'ies.

        Album of New Zealand pressed ferns in a presentation rimu wood binding

      Auckland : T. Cranwell, [between 1875 and 1890]. Quarto, 280 x 220 mm, original rimu wood boards with incised decoration, upper board with 'New Zealand Ferns' carved in raised relief, original morocco backstrip with blind tooling ruled in gilt, front pastedown with nineteenth century binder's ticket reading 'Prepared and mounted by T. Cranwell, Parnell, Auckland, N.Z.'; front endpaper with manuscript label 'Miss Dorothy M. N. Davis, with love & best wishes from Grandpa, February 6th 1923'; containing 30 pressed native fern specimens on rectos of [30] leaves, each accompanied by a small printed label bearing the botanical name of the fern; in fine condition throughout. The collecting and preservation of native fern specimens was an extremely popular pastime in New Zealand in the nineteenth century. Special presentation albums of pressed ferns, typically bound in native timbers such as kauri or rimu, also became a lucrative part of the souvenir trade for a small number of specialist preparators and binders. Along with Eric Craig, Thomas Cranwell was one of the best known makers of pressed fern albums in Auckland. A singing teacher by profession, Cranwell had arrived in New Zealand from Lincolnshire in 1862. By 1875 he had established his own business at Parnell, making and selling fern albums. His collaborator, Anton Seuffert, a Bohemian cabinet-maker, produced many of the beautiful wooden bindings for Cranwell's albums.

      1875-1903. Charles William Sherborn (1831-1912) was an English engraver, who chiefly made bookplates. He has been hailed as having led the revival in copper-engraved bookplates, and came to be called the "Victorian little master".

Approximately 80 different examples of Sherborn's work many in their final form, others at various stages of completion. The collection was compiled by his son . Each item is affixed to a single-fold paper mat with a information on the work at the base of the mat including year created, title, brief description type of engraving (or art), size and process notes on the particular item. Each page is numbered1-80 with a few engravings with multiple page (a,b,c etc). Few lacking. Among the smallest is an intricate watch back engraving of woman with a basket of fruit on her head 1 3/4" x 1 3/8".

        The Life of His Royal Highness the Prince Consort.

      London: Smith, Elder, & Co.,, 1875–80. 5 volumes, octavo (212 x 134 mm). Contemporary brown morocco by John MacLaren & Son, titles and decoration to spines gilt in compartments, decorative gilt frames to covers, edges and turn-ins gilt, marbled endpapers. Frontispieces, 8 other plates with tissue-guards; one a folding facsimile of a draft memorandum by Prince Albert to Lord Lyons in 1861. Spines very slightly faded, occasional spot of faint foxing to contents; an excellent set, handsomely bound. A remarkable presentation set, inscribed by Queen Victoria to her equerry Sir John Carstairs McNeill. Each volume bears a contemporary presentation inscription, in order: "To Sir John McNeill G.C.B. In recollection of former days, from Victoria, Inveraray, Sept: 27 1875"; "To Sir John McNeill K.C B. from Victoria, May 1877"; "To Sir John McNeill G.C.B. from R. Victoria Dec: 1877"; "To Sir John McNeill G.C.B. from R. Victoria Dec: 1879" and, "To Sir John McNeill G.C.B. from R. Victoria Dec: 16. 1880". McNeill (1831–1904), had a long and distinguished military career, winning the Victoria Cross for an act of gallantry in New Zealand, 30 March 1864. He was appointed as the deputy lieutenant for Argyll in 1874, and had a "long association with the royal household, where his love of sport made him a favourite" (ODNB). By the queen's command he accompanied Prince Leopold on his tour of Canada to visit Princess Louise, who was serving as consort to her husband, the marquess of Lorne and later the ninth Duke of Argyll, and governor-general of Canada from 1878 to 1883. McNeill was appointed KCMG upon his return. This extensive biography of Prince Albert (1819–1861) was begun in 1866 and was originally intended to be a continuation of the unpublished work The Early Years of the Prince Consort by Queen Victoria's private secretary Charles Grey. The queen interviewed Martin on 14 November 1866 and, finding him "very pleasing, clever, quiet, and sympathique", engaged him to write the biography. Queen Victoria selected the documents for use and intervened widely in the manuscript. Martin "became one of the queen's confidential, if unofficial, servants" (ODNB). These volumes are mixed editions, as often: vols. I and IV are fourth editions; vols. II and V are third editions and vol. III is a fifth edition; the work was first published annually between 1875 and 1880.

        Sir Wilfrid Laurier Autographed Letter signed

      Arthabaskaville: Wilfrid Laurier, 1875. 1st Edition. No binding. Autograph Letter signed, "Wilfrid Laurier," dated Arthabaskaville, 2 Oct. 1875, addressed to Henry James Morgan. 43 lines on 3 octavo pages, fine condition. Laurier is writing his friend Morgan confirming requests made to Laurier and confirming positive results on these requests. As well, Laurier is profusely thanking Morgan for the present of "state trials" (most likely the Report of the State Trials on the 1838-39 Canadian Rebellion). Laurier writes "It is a precious work in every respect, which for me, is of so much use that you cannot imagine [how helpful it is]" Laurier was elected for the first time in 1871 to the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Quebec, and was re-elected in 1874, this time to the House of Commons, where he would spend the rest of his career, nearly 45 years (1874-1919). Wilfrid Laurier (1841-1919) was Canada's eighth and first French Prime Minister, holding office 1896-1911. Laurier was born in St. Lin, Quebec. He received a law degree from McGill University in 1864, and practiced law in Montreal and Arthabaskville from 1864-1896. Wilfrid Laurier was Liberal party leader from 1887 until his death in 1919 . His nearly 45 years (1874-1919) of service in the House of Commons stands as a record in Canadian politics. In a 2010 poll of 1,000 Canadians, weekly news magazine Maclean's asked who Canada's greatest Prime-Minister was. More than 80% of respondents replied "Wilfrid Laurier". Laurier writes in this letter: "Mon cher ami, / Une absence de / plusieurs mois m'a / empeche de repondre / avant aujourd'hui a / votre derniere faveur. / J'ai adresse a M. / Blake* la note demandee. / Je serai heureux / d'apprendre que vos / demandes auront ete / couronnees de success. // Je ne saurais/ assez vous remercier / pour le beau present / que vous m'avez fait, / de state trials. C'est / un ouvrage precieux a / tous egards, qui pour / moi, est d'une utilite / que je ne saurais / vous dire. Encore une / fois, veuillez accepter / mes sinceres remerciements. / Notre ami Richard*** se / porte bien; je crois qu'il ne / sera pas fache de voir arriver / la session. // J'ai prit [sic] votre com- / mission au juge Plamondon** / ce qui m¿a fait beaucoup / de plaisir: vous connaitrez / son bon coeur, & l'attachement qu'il / conserve pour tous ses amis. // Veuillez je vous prie, vous / rappeler du remercier de Madame / Morgan, & me croire, / Votre tout devoue / serviteur & ami, / Wilfrid Laurier." [English translation available upon request.] *Edward Blake, 1833-1912, at this time Minister of Justice in the first Liberal administration, and later, leader of the Liberal opposition; **Marc Aurele Plamondon, 1823-1900, Quebec Superior Court Judge, under whom Morgan had clerked in the early 1860's; ***Edouard Richard, 1844-1904, historian, lawyer, politician, and, Sir Wilfrid Laurier's law office partner at this time. The recipient, Henry James Morgan, 1842-1913, prolific author and biographer; one of the founders of The Canada First Movement, and life-long civil servant. [Liberals all.].

        [Bedouin falconer].[Morocco, 1920s]. Oil on wooden panel (21 x 16 cm), signed at the lower left "Henri Rousseau". Contemporary gilded wooden frame (33 x 28 cm).

      For the artist: Thieme & Becker XXIX, p. 113. Colourful panel painting by the leading orientalist painter Henri-Émilien Rousseau of a mounted Bedouin falconer, one of Rousseau's favourite subjects. While the sport of falconry was an important status symbol in the Middle East and Europe generally, for the Bedouins it was a means of survival.Rousseau (1875-1933) was a Cairo-born French painter who divided his childhood between North Africa and France, where he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts under the great Orientalist painter, Jean-Léon Gérôme. He broke from the style of his master, however, and started to paint in a more impressionistic style. Between 1920 and 1930 he travelled extensively through the Rif and Atlas mountains of Morocco, where he befriended the chiefs of several nomad tribes. It was probably here that Rousseau fell under the spell of the Bedouin horsemen, which came to characterize his compositions. In 1927 more than 80 of his works from this period were displayed at the gallery of the influential Parisian art dealer Georges Petit. This was followed by an exhibition at the Exposition Universelle of 1931.The panel is cracked in the length, leading to a 4 cm crack in the paint to the right of the rider's head, a 1 cm crack below the horse's left hind hoof, and a 7 cm crack from the top left to the horse's head, but these cracks are only noticeable on close inspection and no paint has been lost. Some minor craquelure in the dark red patch connecting the rider and the saddle. Otherwise a well-executed and clean painting.
