TWAIN, Mark [pseud. CLEMENS, Samuel Langhorne].
Hartford American Publishing Company, 1876. First American edition, second issue (printed on laid paper with frontispiece on verso of half-title and the first page of Contents printed on the verso of the preface); square 8vo (215 x 165 mm.); wood-engraved frontispiece and numerous text vignettes by True Williams and others, 2pp. of publisher's advertisements at end, newspaper clipping laid down on rear free with some resultant offsetting, upper endpapers slightly splitting at hinge; publisher's blue cloth blocked in black and gilt, minor rubbing to corner-tips, but overall an excellent copy, preserved in cloth chemise and morocco-backed cloth slip-case. An excellently bright, clean copy of this keystone work in American literature, this issue printed on laid paper rather than wove. Beyond the stunning condition of this copy, it also has a distinguished pedigree, passing through the hands of the American poet & classics scholar Mitchell S. Buck and the modern first editions collector Christian Heuer; most significant however are the modest signatures of "Barnaby Ross" & "Ellery Queen" on half-title, indicating the book was once owned by Frederic Dannay, who co-wrote under these pseudonyms with his cousin, Manfred B. Lee. Mark Twain does feature in Queen's Quorum, a checklist of 125 detective fiction titles composed by Dannay & Lee, for his 1867 Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County. Given the memorable line 'One of those omniscient and awe-inspiring marvels, a detective' (p.190) and that Tom's own detecting skills are evident both in The Adventures. and in Tom Sawyer, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Young, Allen.
Clowes, London. London: Clowes, 1876. 8vo. viii + 90pp. 12 mounted photographs, large folding map. Original black and gilt decorated royal blue cloth. Yellow endpapers. Spine titles bright. Armorial bookplate of Colonel William Godfrey Fausett. Modern ink ownership signature of Basil French, November, 1848. Text clean, tight and very good. Fine copy. Allen Young gained considerable experience in Arctic exploration when he accompanied M'Clintock in the voyage of the Fox [1857-59] as sailing master. On this same voyage, Young's 1859 exhausting sledging expeditions included "on-the-fly" surveying of 380 miles of coast line along Peel Sound. This privately funded 1875 voyage of the 'Pandora' had as its objects to navigate, if practical, the North West Passage in one season, to drop off dispatches and pick up any communications left by Nares' British Arctic Expedition, and if possible to make a search on King William Island for any further records and journals of the ships Erebus and Terror. (Jane Franklin is cited for contributing financially to the Pandora's expenses, although Young seems to have been the main underwriter of this no-doubt costly venture). During the voyage, the ?Pandora? encountered frequent gales and impeding ice, and heavy ice in Peel Sound prevented further progress. Nonetheless, accomplishments included: investigating the remains of the shelter erected by M'Clintock on Beechey Island, the discovery and examination of the contents of a cairn erected by Sir John Ross when he was searching for Franklin, and locating cairns set up by the Nares expedition.

Collins Denny; John B. Minor
[Charlottesville]: [c. 1876]. Half Leather. Lithographic Duplicate. The lithographically duplicated student notes of Collins Denny, first year graduate law student of the University of Virginia at the time. Denny would later go on to serve as a Chaplain at UVA, Professor of Mental and Moral Philosophy at Vanderbilt, and Bishop of the Methodist Church, South. His Professor of Law, John Barbee Minor, would publish this same material in his monumental compendium, the Institutes of Common and Statute Law, nearly a decade later. These classroom notes, complete in two volumes, correspond to Volume IV, Parts I & II of Minor's future set, on "The Practice of the Law in Civil Cases, Including the Subject of Pleading." This lithographic duplication of Collin Denny's class notes form arguably an ur-edition of John Minor's published work, and include Denny's analytical index, appendix of legal forms, index of the legal forms, the 22 February 1877 examination questions, as well as the proceedings of a county circuit court. The proceedings were written in another hand. The volumes were duplicated in a lithographic fashion, many variants of which are described in Rhodes and Streeter's Before Photocopying. Perhaps a photolithographic duplicate, which was popular during the 1870's and allowed for original documents to be duplicated, ones which did not need the specially prepared inks of other lithographic processes. Text faint in parts, due to the inexact nature of lithographs, and certain leaves cut to uneven length (e.g. ff. xxx, 698), with no loss to the text. Some separation to the few … [Click Below for Full Description]

ERICSSON, JOHN. - [PAVING THE WAY FOR SOLAR POWER]
New York, John Ross, 1876 (wrappers stationg 1875). 4to. Original wrappers. Spine loose and a crease down the middle of the block, otherwise a fine copy. 32 pp. + four plates. Illustrated in the text. ¶ Scarce first edition of this milestone in solar energy, being Erricsson's highly important publication on his findings in solar power in 1875, by which time he had built and tested seven "sun motors", paving the way for solar power as we know it. <br><br>"Ericsson machines had three main features: a conical mirror to concentrate the sunlight on a central axis (much like the stalk of an umbrella); a tube-shaped boiler in the focus of the mirror; and a small steam engine attached to convert the steam into mechanical power. Tests in 1870 showed that the boiler could provide enough power to run the small engine, but beyond this Ericsson said little more about the device. "Drawings and descriptions of the mechanism will not be presented", he wrote, "nor will the form of the generator be delineated or described." Later he added a tracking mechanism that kept the reflector aimed toward the sun as it moved through the sky. By 1875 Ericsson claimed that he had built and tested seven "sun motors"." (Kryza, p. 116). <br><br>"...This was Ericsson's first solar machine of 1870... That solar machine was the first of Ericsson's prototypes (he would eventually build nine). A later model, demonstrated in 1872, used hot air instead of steam, patterned after his earlier caloric engine. Its postons would push its flywheel at 400 revolutions per minute. By 1880 Ericsson had overcome his distrust … [Click Below for Full Description]

CLEMENS, Samuel Langhorne.] TWAIN, Mark.
London: Chatto and Windus, 1876. Octavo. Original red cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt with black design, yellow endpapers. Housed in a burgundy quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery, Early bookseller's ticket of G. A. v. Halem in Bremem, Germany to front pastedown. Cloth bright, very minor wear and rubbing at extremities, lean to spine, edges foxed, contents clean. A very nice copy, fresh and unrestored, scarce thus. First edition, published on 9 June, thus preceding the first American edition that appeared in mid-December by some six months. Twain chose to have the book published first in London to ensure copyright and perhaps also because he was more highly esteemed in Britain than at home. "The irresponsibility, the love of odd adventure, and the sense of natural justice as opposed to the village code, which characterize the heroes of this book and its sequel Huckleberry Finn, presented a sharp contrast to the Sunday School or rags-to-riches literature which was then the common fare doled out to children. these books let fresh air into the minds of parents who had shut the door on their own childhood, and they will be classics the world over as long as there are boys" (Grolier American 79).

Muller, Wein", 63pp, 4 folding woodcut maps at rear of volume, bookplate of Johannes and Margaretae Macknail to bottom of title page, some pencil annotations in margins. "Almost all the celebrated capitals of the ancient kingdoms in Europe, western Asia and India, have been the subject of more or less extensive critical investigation by European antiquaries, and bulky works have been published relating to these matters. But with respect to China our scholars seem to be quite ignorant as to the remains of this ancient civilization; and even regarding Peking, one of the best-known places of the Middle Kingdom, and its classical soil, very little is known." Emil Bretschneider (1833-1901) became famous among researchers for his valuable contributions to the field of sinology. His versatile approach - he was a physician and botanist as well as a sinologist - and his familiarity with Chinese literature distinguished him from his colleagues, many of whom were unable to read sources firsthand. In this book, he presents his account of the history of Peking, where he was station … [Click Below for Full Description]

MOYR SMITH, John.
c.1876: 1876. Six tiles from 12 designed for Minton, inspired by Alfred, Lord Tennyson's 'Idylls of the King'. Designed by Moyr Smith and first produced in 1876. Here unusually in blue and white. A fine group in remarkably good condition and framed for display in the 1960s by the Marshall Field department store in Chicago. Tennyson's The Idylls of the King poems are all about the legends of King Arthur so are a perfect subject matter for this most Victorian of designers. They are some of the best and were among the more popular of Moyr Smith's pictorial series of tiles for Minton. A stunning display. The tiles in this set are Vivien, Excalibur, Elaine, Isolt, Enid & Pelleas. .

Photographs.
1876. Oblong folio.16 leaves with albumen photographic prints measuring 14 x 10 1/2 inches mounted on recto, captions in letterpress. The Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition of 1876 was the first World's Fair. It was held from May to November, 1876, and attracted nearly 10 million visitors. One of the many buildings specially constructed for the exhibition was devoted exclusively to photography. Thus the photographic "title page" of this album is labeled "Centennial International Photographic Exhibition," with credit given to famed photographer William Notman as president of the exhibition committee. The subject of this particular album is Gloucester, Mass. The "title page" image is of Gloucester's fisheries exhibit at the fair, and the fifteen images in the album are scenes of the Gloucester waterfront, Gloucester cityscapes, and specific buildings in the city. All are identified in letterpress as to location, with credit for each of the images given to Gloucester photographer William A. Elwell. Many photographic images were displayed in the exhibition curated by Notman. An entry in Worldcat lists 514 stereograph images of the Centennial Exhibition, assembled by William Notman and Edward L Wilson. Worldcat also lists albums of photographs for states such as Florida and Nebraska, but none of the images are of this scale, and none are specific to a single city. No holdings in Worldcat. I've been told by a curator that a similar title exists in the library of the Cape Ann Museum, but I have not seen it. This is a rare and spectacular photographic record of Gloucester at the he … [Click Below for Full Description]

Neville, who wrote under the name Neison, published the first observer's guide to the moon written in English, and it is still one of the best. It contains a wealth of detail on more than 500 named features, as well as a map in 22 sections, to the scale of 24" to the moon's diameter. The map is not entirely original, being based on that of Beer and Mädler, but it is much easier to use than the original. In addition to the map, there are several enlarged drawings of craters of special interest, such as Gassendi and Maginus, and five chromolithographs to show the effect of changing illumination on the lunar landscape (Ashworth). - Visit our website to see more images!

There is occasional finger soil to the margins and the last several leaves [text only] have a crease. Otherwise the pages are so bright and clean as to stand out in comparison. My veteran book binder was quite impressed with the condition of the maps. The original covers are chipped but still quite presentable. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Grant, Ulysses S
1876. Autograph letter signed by and entirely in the hand of Ulysses S. Grant as President. Addressed to the Attorney General of the United States Edwards Pierrepont the letter reads, "Elizabeth, N.J. Sept. 2nd 1876 Dear Judge, While in Utica Judge Hunt spoke to me of the importance of appointing a member to Judge Woodruff at as early as a day as practicable on account of the great amount of business before the court. I do not know of any lawyer in the circuit to whom to tender the position when it should be Senator Edmunds and he I should dislike to see leave the Senate. But you are well acquainted with the Bar in that circuit and its wants, and can no doubt suggest the right man for the place. If you will send me a commission therefore to St. Louis so as to reach me there between the 24th and 28th either filled up of the name blank, with suggestions as to the best man I will sign and return it. Very truly your humble servant U.S. Grant." Grant appointed Pierrepont Attorney General of the United States on April 26, 1875. When he assumed the office, Pierrepont immediately implemented overdue reform in the South's U.S. Marshal and U.S. Attorney departments including extensive investigations into the conduct of the U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals, exposing fraud and corruption. Double matted and framed with a carte de visite of Grant. In fine condition. The entire piece measures 21.75 inches by 15.75 inches.

Hartford: American Publishing, 1876. FIRST AMERICAN EDITION, FIRST PRINTING (with half-title and frontispiece on different leaves as required). This is one of only 200 copies in the original publisher's deluxe morocco binding, sold at a premium by subscription.Twain's first novel written without a co-author, Tom Sawyer "proved to be one of the most durable works in American literature. By the time of Twain's death, it was his top-selling book. It had been in print continuously since 1876, and has outsold all other Mark Twain works" (Rasmussen)."Tom Sawyer was the first printed story of a boy in which the hero was recognizable as a boy throughout the whole narrative ... until Tom Sawyer was written, nearly all the boys of fiction were adults with a lisp, or saintly infants, or mischievous eccentrics ... in the work of Dickens there were hints of boys that were boys; but Tom was the first full blown boy in all fiction ... the book is a landmark" (Booth Tarkington).This novel of a boy growing up along the Mississippi River is set in a town called St. Petersburg, inspired by Samuel Clemens's hometown of Hannibal, Missouri. The author may have been named Tom after a San Francisco fireman whom he met in June 1863. The real Tom Sawyer was a local hero, famous for rescuing ninety passengers after a shipwreck in 1853. The two were friendly during the author's years in California, often drinking and gambling together. Twain referred to the real Tom Sawyer in Roughing It, but in later years he claimed that he himself was the model for Tom and that "'Sawyer' was not the real name ... o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hofphotographen Fritz Luckhardt mit sepiafarbener Tinte geschriebene Widmung ist gerichtet an Carl Brandt: "Lieber Brandt | wenn wir erst zum | letzten Brand | gekommen sein werden, | wollen wir Lachnerin | einen Hahn | schlachten | Dieses gelobend bin ich | Ihr | dankbarer Richard Wagner". - Carl Brandt war in den Jahren 1876 und 1882 Bühnenmeister der Bayreuther Festspiele und ein enger Mitarbeiter Wagners (Kaiser, s. u.). Wagners Widmung ist zwar undatiert, dürfte aber aus dem Jahre 1876 stammen und Bezug auf das Schlußbild der "Götterdämmerung" nehmen. Das Portrait mit Wagners Widmung findet Erwähnung im Wagner-Briefe-Verzeichnis (unter A 673) und im Auktionskatalog von Leo Liepmannsohn (Kat. 63, Nr. 193). - Die Bildseite etwas fleckig, die Schrift verso etwas verblaßt. - Hermann Kaiser: Der Bühnenmeister Carl Brandt und Richard Wagner.

SOCIETE DE MEDECINE ET DE PHARMACIE DE LA HAUTE-VIENNE || LE LIMOUSIN MEDICAL
H. Ducourtieux-Ducourtieux & Gout, Limoges, 1876. Demi basane de l'époque portant le titre doré, ainsi que la date de parution dorée. Trente-sept volumes in-8 (234x152 mm), volumes avec en moyenne entre 200 et 300 pages. Note manuscrite volante au volume de l'année 1889 (entre les pages 126-127). Manques des pages de faux-titre, de titre et des tables des matières aux volumes des années 1907, 1909, 1910 et 1911. Quelques frottements mineurs. Au volume de l'année 1885, le dernier feuillet est collé au second contreplat, avec une déchirure sans manque. Édition originale. A la fin du XIXème siècle, à l'initiative d'un jeune médecin puis d'un collectif de praticiens, une revue spécialisée centrée sur l'actualité médicale de Limoges et de sa région est créée. Elle est tout d'abord publiée sous le titre "Revue médicale de Limoges" entre 1867 et 1874 (interruption de la parution entre octobre 1869 et août 1872) par un médecin seul.
