San Francisco: Thompson and West, 1876, 1876. First edition. Cowan, page 567; Rocq 13727; Rumsey Map Collection 2556; LeGear, United States Atlases, L478. Recased at an early date; clean tear in the title-page mended without loss; lower corner of the title-page and preface repaired, with some loss to the decorative border; binding a little rubbed; overall a very good copy.. Folio, 44.5 x 39.5 cm, original black quarter calf, blind- and gilt-decorated black cloth. Lithographed title-page, 21 hand-colored maps (nine double-page) and 54 lithographs with 109 views and images (10 double-page). The first of the elaborate and handsome California county atlases produced by Thompson and West of San Francisco (and later Oakland); as they state in the preface this is "the first work of its kind ever attempted on the Pacific Coast." In addition to its many fine lithograph images of public buildings, residences, scenery, and ranches, it contains detailed hand-colored maps of San José, Gilroy, Mountain View, Saratoga, Los Gatos, and other locations in what is today known as Silicon Valley; and its introduction has a history of the county and a catalog of its resources. Thompson and West produced similar atlases of Sonoma, Solano, Alameda, Fresno, and Tulare counties, all of which remain important historical records of early California architecture and city planning, the majority of which has been torn down and/or plowed under. Note: the images of the title-page and upper cloth cover are of this copy; the four images of the lithographed views and map were taken from the Rumsey Map Colle … [Click Below for Full Description]

[URAYA YOSHIHARU]. 浦谷義春
Osaka.: [Manabe Busuke]. 真部武助, Meiji 9 [1876]. Osaka.: [Manabe Busuke]. 真部武助. Meiji 9 [1876]. Black and white woodblock print on Japanese washi paper, 4 small text sheets pasted on two panels and lower margin for revisions and addendum, 38 x 68cm, This interesting kawaraban, which was published in Osaka in 1876, details over 70 types of small crimes with charming little black and white illustrations. It was published in order to explain the newly introduced civil law at the beginning of Meiji period to the Japanese public. The crimes are generally called "Ishiki Kaii Zaimoku" (Different Style Crimes). A number of the crimes depicted in the notice concern the relationships with foreigners, such as sharing accommodation with, offering lodging to foreigners without permission, or boarding a foreign boat without a boarding certificate. Some regulations are also focused on stamping out forms of behaviour which were likely to be regarded as shocking or uncivilized by foreigners - including prohibitions on running public baths with mixed bathing, punishments for the sales of erotic prints (shunga) and a prohibion (probably unenforceable) on urinating in the street. Other types of crimes relate to public safety and disturbance, such as shooting arrows on the street or playing music instruments after midnight, selling blowfish (fugu - prohibited because of the risk of poisoning) and keeping pigs in your house in built-up areas. The life of urban areas in the 1870s is captured in regulations that prohibit behaviour such as extinguishing street lights or carrying uncovered buckets of … [Click Below for Full Description]

GORDON, Charles George.
Labore: 30 June, 1876. Gordon predicts that a would-be explorer will come to grief Together 3 items: (1) autograph letter signed from Gordon to Alfred Behrens ("Dear Sir"), 5 large octavo bifolia of fine, pale blue laid paper, watermark "L-J D L & Co." [Laroche-Joubert, Dumergue, Lacroix et Compagnie, Angoumois], text to recto and verso of 4 sheets, giving 16 pages, postscript to the first panel recto of the final sheet with a full-page sketch map facing showing in detail the area in which the recipient will be travelling; (2) autograph letter signed from Lucas to Gordon, to which Gordon refers in his letter, 2 pages on single large octavo bifolium, with integral blank leaf, Duffli [Dufile, Uganda], 24 June 1876; and (3) autograph letter signed from Lucas to "Dear Alfred [Behrens]", his first cousin to whom Gordon sent his advice for Lucas, 1½ pages large octavo, Magungo, Albert Nyanza, 28 July 1876. Lightly creased from old folds and handling but overall very good indeed. An unusually long letter, in which Gordon goes into great detail about the difficulties of African exploration, revealing his exasperation at Lucas's behaviour, and his frustration at Lucas's unwillingness to heed the advice of someone far more experienced in African travel. Louis Arthur Lucas (1851-1876) was the only surviving son of Philip Lucas, a prosperous Manchester merchant. Cushioned by his father's wealth, Lucas travelled in Switzerland and the United States, until a trip to Egypt in 1873 excited his interest in Africa. Despite contracting typhoid fever on that first trip, Lucas planned to expl … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Samuel Tinsley, 1876. First edition. Original publisher's cloth embossed in blind with titles to spines. Cream endpapers. A bit of rubbing to extremities and a small stain to spine of volume I. Internally nice with occasional light foxing; short tear to outer blank margin of P2 (pages 211/212) in volume I and to O7 and O8 (pages 205/206) in volume III, and a small piece torn from upper blank margin of R3 (pages245/256) in volume III. Small bookseller's ticket on front pastedown of each volume: "G.A. Poynder, Second-Hand Bookshop, Next to General Post Office, Reading." Previous owner's ink signature (Arthur J. Nash) on front free endpaper of each volume. Collating [2], 258; [2], 248; [2], 263, [1, printer's imprint]: complete with the 16 page publisher's catalogue, dated September, 1877, and the [8] pp. publisher's advertisements, dated August 20th, 1877, at the end of volume I. In all a pleasing copy of this scarce book, the only one on the market, which OCLC reports at 7 libraries (only 2 of those in the US). Phoebe Allen's first novel, in many ways, is reflective of the popularity of the romance genre during the Victorian period. Women readers were a major market -- and this also increased women author's ability to publish work that appealed to them. Yet Gilmory also stands out. On the one hand, it meets the sensational expectations readers would demand: hidden identities, family scandal, and mystery unraveling until an explosive revelation at the denouement. On the other, it places a strong-willed and independent heroine, Gilmory Anstruther, at its center and rev … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hartford: American Publishing Company, 1876. First edition, second issue of the apotheosis of American boyhood. Octavo, original blue cloth elaborately stamped in gilt, illustrated with frontispiece and numerous in-text illustrations. Mixed state with the 1875 on the copyright page and 1876 on the title page, four pages of terminal advertisements. An unusually fine example. Popular and controversial at the time of publication in 1876, Mark Twain's masterpiece The Adventures of Tom Sawyer has been adapted into dozens of film, television and theatrical productions. The quintessential tale of American boyhood established one of the most memorable characters in American literature who appeared in three later sequels including Twain's other most notable work, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. "The first novel Mark Twain wrote without a co-author, Tom Sawyer is also his most clearly autobiographical novel enlivened by extraordinary and melodramatic events, it is otherwise a realistic depiction of the experiences, people and places that Mark Twain knew as a child" (Rasmussen, 459).

Bible in English. Smith, Julia, translator ].
Hartford: American Publishing Company, 1876. Julia Evelina Smith (1792-1886) and her sister Abby Hadassah Smith (1797-1879) independently funded the publication of the present work, which was the first full translation of the Bible ever published by a woman. In her article ÒThe First Feminist Bible,Ó Madeline B. Stern notes that Julia Smith, who spent about eight years of her life in dedicated translation of the Bible, also completed four other unpublished translations: one from Hebrew, two from Greek and one from Latin (p. 24). In ÒA SuffragistÕs Bible,Ó Lewis Perry summarized the style of SmithÕs translation: ÒSmithÕs goal was a plain, accurate textÉShe avoided archaic language. She did not bowdlerize, invent, or embroiderÉThe true meaning came from the readerÕs struggle to comprehend rather than the translatorÕs substitutions or interpretations,Ó (p. 454). This summary echoes SmithÕs own statement about her goals in the preface to the present work: ÒThe work is given in types, in figures, in parables and dark sayings, a knowledge of which is gained, as all other knowledge is gained, by the desire to learn it,Ó (p. 1).

MACOMB, Capt. J. N. and J. S. NEWBERRY
Washington, D. C.: Government Printing Office, 1876. 4to. ii, [1], 152 pp. 11 fine chromolithographic and 11 lithographic plates. Large folding map. Original black cloth. Spine perished, light intermittent spotting. FIRST EDITION. Macomb's expedition "showed conclusively that no feasible supply route existed leading into the Great Basin from that direction. However, in the realm of geography and geology its implications were considerable. The whole drainage of the San Juan had been traced and the relationship of that river with the Colorado clearly established. More important, they had also established that the Green River united with the Grand to form the Colorado. The entire maze of intricate canyon country had been threaded, and its geography revealed for the first time. In addition, Newberry was able to establish numerous stratigraphic columns, and to trace the Triassic, Jurassic, and Carboniferous strata far out across the Colorado River. Newberry introduced a new level of sophistication into the study of western geology. Of Newberry it might be said that more than any other scientist since Frémont he had opened up new and unknown country to the civilized world" (Goetzmann, 'Army Exploration in the American West'). Alliot, p. 144; Graff 2647; Howes M179. [Attributes: First Edition]
