      Chromolithograph, dissected into 24 sections and mounted upon 2 sheets of original linen, folding into original card covers bearing printed title, neat manuscript former owner’s inscription in pen to front cover (Excellent, map resplendent, clean and crisp; covers in stellar shape, with only a tiny blemish), total when assembled: 142 x 124 cm (56 x 49 inches). - Berlin: Dietrich Reimer, 1875. A stellar example of Heinrich Kiepert’s excellent wall map of the Russian Empire in Europe, beautifully chromolithographed, predicated on the best sources, one of the finest maps of the region made during the second half of the 19th Century. - This stellar work is one of the finest maps of the Russian Empire in Europe to have been produced during the second half of the 19th Century, having been compiled by the preeminent cartographer Heinrich Kiepert. Very large, and produced to the highest standards of chromolithography, the map is predicated on the best sources, notably the mapping published in 1862 by the Russian Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg, which was, in turn, based on the latest government and private scientific surveys. The scope of the map is vast, taking in all of European Russia (which then included all of today’s Western Russia, Finland, the Baltic Countries, Belarus, Ukraine, the Caucuses, and much of modern Poland), extending in the north to include most of Scandinavia and then east, past the Urals; and in the south, to cover most of Greece, all of Anatolia, the Caucuses and the Caspian Sea. The detailed projection features a very sophisticated and precise rendering of the topography, noting all coastlines, rivers and lakes, while mountains are expressed through elegant hachures. All subnational political jurisdictions are carefully delineated, noting the guberniyas and oblasts, with the various regions of the empire outlined in colours explained in the legend, in the lower-right corner. The map labels every city, town and most villages, while a below the legend, the map explains the methodology by which Kiepert, a skilled linguist, transliterated names into German, from Russian, Finnish, Turkish and Persian. Additionally, the map delineates, all major high roads, post roads, as well as Russia’s fast growing network of railway lines, including the Moscow-St. Petersburg Railway (1851); the St. Petersburg-Warsaw Railway (1862); plus the various lines running down to the Black Sea. The present map is by far one of the most impressive of several grand foreign maps of the Russian Empire made in the wake of the Crimean War (1853-6), which sparked an intense pan-European interest in the geography of Russia. The present 1875 issue is the fourth edition of Kiepert’s map of the Russian Empire in Europe, which was first issued in 1865, with subsequent editions appearing in 1868, 1872, 1875, 1882 and 1893. All editions of the map were printed in 6 sheets, although, in many cases, these sheets were dissected and mounted upon linen (such as the present example), in a manner that was irrespective of the sheets. The map, in any of its editions, is scarce, and the present example is in unusually stellar condition. The neat ownership inscription on the front cover of the present example likely refers to Alexis Roulet (1837 - 1901) of . SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION

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.

        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.
