        The Holy Bible: Containing the Old and New Testaments; translated literally from the original tongues.

      Hartford: American Publishing Co. 8vo (25.5 cm, 10"). [2], 892, 276 pp.. 1876 First and only edition of this interestingly nonconformist translation, done by a vocal suffragist known for protesting the taxation of unenfranchised women. Julia Evelina Smith (1792–1886), one of the five celebrated, talented siblings sometimes referred to as the "Marvelous Smith Sisters of Connecticut," became a member of the Sandemanian sect after much independent religious study. She chose to have her private labor of love published to serve as a public demonstration of the intellectual capabilities of women, rebuking one dubious banker with the comment that she "thought it just as well to spend money to print this Bible as to put it into a thousand-dollar shawl" (New York Times, 9 March 1886). Smith endeavored to provide an extremely literal, word-for-word rendition to enhance her and her sisters' understanding of the text. Regarding the rather tangled results, she notes in her preface that "readers of this book may think it strange that I have made such use of the tenses . . . It seems to me that the original Hebrew had no regard to time, and that the Bible speaks for all ages." Priding herself as a student of ancient languages particularly on her Hebrew, this translator closely followed the Masoretic text for the O.T. and => consistently used "Jehovah" for the Tetragrammaton. Publisher's pebbled brown cloth, title and translator's name simply gilt-stamped within blind-stamped panel; recently rebacked and original spine reapplied (spine slightly rumpled), one corner restored, other corners mildly rubbed. Hinges (inside) reinforced. Front pastedown with affixed newspaper clipping on the Smith sisters. One page with short tear from lower edge, not extending into text; pages clean. => A nice copy of a very desirable Bible.

        Thirteen Volumes of The Waverley Novels

      Edinburgh - W.P. Nimmo, Hay and Mitchell 1876 - An attractive set of the Waverley Novels by Sir Walter Scott, in decorative half-morocco binding, and comprising the complete twenty six works included in this edition, in thirteen volumes. Titles are as follows:Waverley and Guy ManneringWoodstock and The Fair Maid of PerthAntiquary and Rob RoyPeveril of The Peak and Quentin DurwardCastle Dangerous and Highland WidowAbbot and KenilworthOld Mortality and Legend of MontroseBetrothed and TalismanSt Ronan's Well and RedgauntletIvanhoe and MonsteryAnne of Geierstein and Count Robert of ParisPirate and Fortunes of NigelSir Walter Scott was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright and poet. The first English language author to have a truly international career in his lifetime, Scott's works are still read today, and many of his works are considered classics of both English and Scottish literature. During his own era, and for nearly a century subsequently, the works were among the most popular and widely read in Europe. Although Scott had attained celebrity status through his poetry during his lifetime, he is most famously remembered for his novels which were originally published anonymously under the title of 'The Author of Waverley'. Here, twenty six of the works are presented alongside biographical and critical notices by the Reverend P. Hately Waddell, with additional glosseries of Scottish phrases and foreign words, as well as forntispiece plates and decorative title pages. Several volumes contain the book plate of one Robert G. Shephard Dalkin. Condition: In decorative half-calf binding with gilt detailing and paper-covered boards. Externally smart, there is wear to the extremities, joints and backstrip, with odd minor wear to boards. Internally, the pages are firmly bound and generally bright and clean aside from spotting to endpages and the odd spot throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

      Hartford, Conn: The American Publishing Company, 1876. First edition. Very Good. First printing, with the half-title and the frontis illustration on separate leaves, printed on wove paper. Collates complete as per BAL 3369 with the triple fly-leaves on laid paper, front and back, and four pages of publisher's ads following the novel. Only 5,000 copies of this first printing were issued (compared to 30,000 for Huck Finn). A Very Good copy in the publisher's original blue cloth, stamped in black and gilt. Without any repairs to the cloth (which is uncommon). Rear inner hinge professionally repaired, otherwise untouched and in very good shape internally. Chips to the cloth at the spine ends, less than 1/4 of a inch at the top and 1/16 of an inch at the base, some fraying to the corners, otherwise a tidy copy. One of the classic American novels, Twain's bildungsroman follows the adventures of Tom Sawyer - and his friend Huck Finn -- in St. Petersburg, Missouri told with Twain's characteristic and unmatchable wit and humor. It would become his best-selling book and its sequel, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," is arguably the greatest American novel of all time. "Mr. Samuel Clemens has taken the boy of the Southwest for the hero of his new book… and has presented him with a fidelity to circumstance which loses no charm by being realistic in the highest degree, and which gives incomparably the best picture of life in that region as yet known to fiction." (Contemporary Atlantic Monthly Review). Very Good.

An account of the voyage made by Sir Allen William Young "with the object of assisting the government Arctic expedition which set out in May 1875 under the command of George Strong Nares. Young took his steam yacht Pandora, with a crew of thirty-one men, to Baffin Bay. He tried to make the north-west passage, but was stopped by heavy ice in Peel Strait. On the return journey he picked up George Nares's dispatches from the Carey Islands, bringing home the latest news of Nares's expedition" (ODNB). Young was later knighted for his services in connection with Nares's expedition. The author was a well-known American war correspondent who had made his name with his despatches from the Franco-Prussian War, his account of Skobelev's annexation of Khiva, and later for his reporting of the Turkish atrocities against the Bulgarians in 1876 and the Russo-Turkish was of 1877-8. MacGahan is still remembered in Bulgaria for his rôle in the fight for Bulgarian independence, with a street and a school in the capital, Sofia, named for him.

        LIFE STUDIES OF THE GREAT ARMY

      New York: Harry Johnson, 1876. Large folio. Original publisher's cloth, gilt. Front board present, gilt worn away; rear board lacking. Cover somewhat dampsoiled and worn. Light foxing and soiling, heavier to first plate, though mostly confined to margins elsewhere. A few plates with small marginal tears or chips. Good. Edwin Forbes was one of the most notable illustrators of the American Civil War. From 1862 on he was a correspondent for HARPER'S WEEKLY, producing illustrations to accompany war news. During most of this period he accompanied the Army of the Potomac on its campaigns in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Although Forbes portrays battle scenes, he was much more interested in depicting the everyday life of the private soldier in camp and on the march. Typically his scenes include such topics as "Washing Day," the camp cook, vendors of supplies to soldiers, picket duty, and other incidents of camp life. A number of other illustrations show life on the march, fording streams, the supply train, and the like. All of the plates are etchings, evidently executed by Forbes himself from his original drawings (which were mainly pen and ink wash). The forty plates contain fifty-nine scenes, since some plates have two or three scenes, and one has five. A table of contents appears on the inside of the front board, where each plate has a more lengthy textual gloss as well. The front board proclaims the publication was sold "to subscribers only." It divides the plates into ten parts, so it would seem the publication was issued over a period of time, although all plates are dated 1876. A major graphic record of the Civil War, by one of its most notable recorders.

        GETTYSBURG. REPULSE OF LONGSTREET'S ASSAULT

      Boston: James Drummond, 1876. Some tanning, with some darker vertical columns of browning. A very good example of this amazingly detailed engraving. A superb panoramic steel engraving capturing in fantastic detail John Bachelder's conception of the climactic event of the Battle of Gettysburg: Longstreet's assault, including Pickett's Charge, on the third day against the Union center at Cemetery Hill. On July 3, 1863 Gen. Robert E. Lee ordered Lt. Gen. Longstreet and his commanders (including Pickett) to assault Union General Meade's positions on Cemetery Ridge. Over 12,000 Confederate soldiers marched across the battlefield in an attempt to breach the Union lines, but were caught out in the open, taking heavy losses, suffering approximately a 50% casualty rate. This advance marked the "high-water mark of the Confederacy" and is arguably the turning point of the Civil War; as the war would continue for another two years, the Confederates never launched another offensive campaign. This fascinating engraving was executed by H.B. Hall Jr., based on a larger painting by James Walker under the supervision of Bachelder. John Bachelder was a portrait and landscape painter, lithographer, and photographer. During the Civil War he accompanied the Army of the Potomac and made many sketches of military life and important battles. He is best known as the historian of the Battle of Gettysburg and was a dominant factor in the preservation of the Gettysburg Battlefield.

        THE YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK AND THE MOUNTAIN REGIONS OF PORTIONS OF IDAHO, NEVADA, COLORADO AND UTAH. DESCRIBED BY PROF. F.V. HAYDEN...ILLUSTRATED BY CHROMOLITHOGRAPHIC REPRODUCTIONS OF WATER-COLOUR SKETCHES, BY THOMAS MORAN

      Boston: L. Prang and Co., 1876. Folio. Publisher's half brown morocco and maroon pebbled cloth portfolio binding, with four brass clasps, upper cover stamped in gilt: "The Yellowstone Park." With original printed grey wrappers for the fifteen parts laid in. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. A complete copy of Thomas Moran's finest published work and a masterpiece of chromolithography: the greatest American color plate book of landscape scenery from the post-Civil War era. This copy is especially remarkable for containing the original wrappers, the first time that we have ever encountered them. There are fifteen wrappers, each of which has printed on the front wrapper: "The / Yellowstone / National Park. / Hayden. / Moran." The verso of the rear wrapper of each of the fifteen parts lists the plates that come with the work and explains: "each part will contain one plate and its accompanying text. The Title, Table of Contents, Preface, Introduction, and two Maps will be furnished with the last part. L. Prang & Company, Boston." The stunning views in this book are based on Thomas Moran's work during Ferdinand V. Hayden's 1871 expedition to northwestern Wyoming, the first survey of what would become Yellowstone National Park. During that summer Moran laid the basis for some of his most famous works rendered in watercolor, oil, and here in chromolithographs. These plates were the first to adequately depict the spectacular scenery of Yellowstone, and have long been considered the most skillful and striking prints of the park. Indeed, these images helped define the American West for much of the public. Louis Prang was the greatest color-printer of his day, and he declared this work his masterpiece. At the time of its production in 1876 it was certainly the most elaborate and successful work of chromolithographic printing undertaken in the United States. Printed on card using numerous lithographic stones to give remarkable depth of color, the intended result was to give the prints the appearance of the original paintings. A contemporary review in THE NATION declared the prints to bear remarkable likeness to the original watercolors, "an accuracy which we do not think could have been surpassed in any country." The review continues by praising Moran's artistic sense, "the boldness and facility of the drawing are really impressive." Another reviewer termed the work "a genuine triumph of American graphic art." Moran himself praised Prang's efforts, writing to him in 1876: "It is in every respect a most sumptuous & magnificent work....It seems to me that Chromo- Lithography has, in your hands, attained perfection so skillfully have you reproduced every shade and tone of color of the originals." The work's publication marked "the beginning of [Prang's] dominance of the finest American chromolithographic work in the last quarter of the century" (STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER). Bennett concurs that the book is "marvelously reproduced...hand work could never give the effect of perspective and distance achieved in the towering scenes reproduced here." McClinton declares Prang's work to be a "monument of American bookmaking" and the "prints have never been surpassed as examples of the best American chromolithography...unexcelled among illustrations of the Far West." Kinsey aptly sums up Moran's efforts: "Had he done nothing else, Moran would be remembered for this series, which remains a landmark in publishing history." Issued in a limited edition with the prints loose in a portfolio (as here), and thus easily extracted for display, few complete copies have survived. This copy is especially notable for having the original parts wrappers, the first instance of such that we have ever encountered.

        Annuaire pour l'an 1876 par le Bureau de longitudes

      - 612pp., 3pl. Paris, Gauthier-Villars, s.d. [1876], in-12, 612pp, 3pl, demi-chagrin marine, dos à nerfs (reliure moderne), 3 planches représentant l'observatoire du parc Montsouris, la carte des lignes d'égale déclinaison magnétique et le revolver photographique de Janssen. L'ouvrage comporte en effet un chapitre de Jules Janssen sur la mission du Japon pour l'observation du passage de Vénus (p.572). Janssen (1824-1907) inventa le dispositif du revolver pour photographier l'éclipse du Soleil par la planète Vénus, en 1874. La conjonction de Vénus et du Soleil n'ayant lieu que deux fois tous les cent treize ans, à huit ans d'intervalle, cet événement astronomique fit l'objet d'une intense préparation de la part de la communauté scientifique internationale. Ce point noir, à peine visible à l'oeil nu, permettait surtout d'évaluer la distance précise entre la Terre et le Soleil. Près de 100 stations furent installées dans le monde entier par l'Empire russe, l'Allemagne, l'Angleterre et les États-Unis. En France, l'Académie des sciences, sous la présidence de J.-B. Dumas, installa trois stations d'observation dans l'hémisphère nord, à Pékin, Yokohama et Saigon, et trois dans l'hémisphère sud, aux îles Saint-Paul et Campbell ainsi qu'à Nouméa. Le revolver photographique de Janssen permettait d'enregistrer simultanément la prise de vue et le moment où elle se déroulait, grâce à un disque animé d'une rotation périodique. L'appareil permettait de prendre, au moment où le contact allait se produire, une série de photographies, à des intervalles de temps très courts et réguliers, de manière que l'image photographique de ce contact fût nécessairement comprise dans la série et donnât en même temps l'instant précis du phénomène. Cette méthode très originale indexait la prise de vue sur la mesure du temps, transformant ainsi la photographie en une sorte d'horloge enregistreuse. Cette invention est considérée comme le premier exemple de chronophotographie, voire comme l'ancêtre du cinématographe. Cet ouvrage connut un tiré à part, en 1876, chez Gauthier-Villars (Janssen, Mission du Japon pour l'observation du passage de Vénus. In-16, 19pp, planche). Il comporte aussi un texte de Mouchez sur la mission de l'île Saint-Paul pour l'observation du passage de Vénus (p.537). Bon état. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
