        Baedeker's Palestine and Syria Handbook for Travellers with Eighteen Maps, Forty-three Plans, a Panorama of Jerusalem, and Ten Views

      Leipsic: Karl Baedeker, 1876. First edition. Original Cloth. Very Good. H. Kiepert. Leipsic: Karl Baedeker, 1876. First edition. Original Cloth. Very Good. H. Kiepert. xvi, 610 pp. index, illus. 16mo. 6.25 x 4.5 inches. Red cloth over flexible boards with gilt titles, marbled text edges, red ribbon placeholder. Cloth faded, gilt lettering faded but clear, tear to lower spine, light wear and mild indentations along board edges, hinges cracked, interior maps and text pages clean and fairly bright, closed edge tears to a couple of maps, no foxing, only mild fading to marbled text edges. The year 1876 appears on title page, however the front pastedown listing of Baedeker's Guide Books is dated August 1889, so this copy is either a later printing of the first English edition ( the second edition was not published until 1894.) or, as Baedeker was known to bind their books as they were issued for sale, it is likely the 1876 printing bound at a later date and having the updated pastedown. The book is complete - all maps, views, plans and text pages present. Many finely drawn illustrations including the "place of wailing of the Jews" now the Wailing Wall, Damascus, Via Dolorosa, etc. Duotone Jerusalem panorama fold-out is approximately 22 x 6 inches. Most maps are colored in green or orange and blue and include the approximately 16 x 12 inch frontispiece fold-out map showing the routes to the Levant. Comprehensive densely detailed historical reference with sections on travel modes and routes, customs, vocaabulary, hotels, restaurants, mosques, dwelling-houses, baths, bazaars, geography, climate, population, and the specific environs of the many Palestinian and Syrian towns and cities as they were in the mid-19th century. A "Plan of Tour" lays out a one-month journey from Yafa ("hire horses immediately") to Jerusalem, to Dead Sea, to Jericho, to Ford of Jordan, to Bethlehem and back to Yafa, the on to Beirut, Damascus, Smyrna, and Tropoli.

        TRANSIT VÉNUS 1874]

      1876 1183 - Paris, Firmin-Didot et Cie puis Gauthier-Villars, 1876-1890, , 3 tomes en 8 volumes in-4 (atlas 68 planches et annexe compris), demi-chagrin brun de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs, armes anciennement masquées en tête des dos, Édition originale de la totalité des publications de l'Académie des sciences autour de l'expédition astronomique française chargée d'étudier le passage de Vénus devant le soleil en 1874 : cette conjonction, qui a lieu deux fois tous les cent treize ans environ à huit ans d’intervalle, fut l'occasion de mettre sur pied un projet d'enregistrement photographique mené, entre autres, par le célèbre astronome Jules Janssen (1824-1907), qui embarqua officieusement, à bord de la mission japonaise dont il était chargé, un dispositif ingénieux de son invention : le très célèbre revolver photographique. L'expédition fit des observations à Nagasaki, Pékin, Saïgon, Nouméa en Nouvelle-Calédonie, l'île Saint-Paul dans l'océan indien et l'île Campbell à l'extrême sud des océans ; l'objectif astronomique put s'enrichir de multiples investigations dans les champs hydrographique, météorologique, géologique et zoologique. Ensemble d'une grande rareté, qui se compose comme suit: Le tome I (2 parties en 2 volumes) contient les procès-verbaux et les nombreux mémoires lus devant la Commission de 1872 à 1874 ; illustré de 3 grandes cartes dépliantes (passages de Vénus sur le soleil en 1874 et 1882) et de 4 planches gravées, dont l'une figure la lunette astronomique et un autre l'appareil photographique utilisé par Ad. Martin de Wolf. Le tome II (2 parties en 2 volumes) relate les missions de Pékin, de Saint-Paul, du Japon, de Saïgon et de Nouméa ; illustré de 26 + 35 planches, soit 10 planches de clichés photographiques originaux, dont l'une comprend des clichés du Soleil obtenus avec "l'appareil de le Commission du passage de Vénus", et plusieurs cartes et vues en lithographie, parmi lesquelles des représentations de l'Observatoire de Pékin. Les deux premières parties du tome III (2 tomes et 1 atlas) rapportent la mission de l'île Campbell illustrée de 6 planches + d'un atlas de 68 planches en lithographie d'études géologiques et zoologiques (55 planches de zoologie sur fond crème et 13 planches de géologie dont 10 d'observations microscopiques de roches, en couleurs et sous serpentes légendées). Enfin, la troisième partie du tome III (1 volume) contient tous les documents relatifs aux épreuves photographiques. L'Annexe paru en 1890 (relié à la fin de la 3e partie du 3e tome) fait le bilan des résultats obtenus (calcul des parallaxes, trajectoire de Vénus, etc.) Du point de vue de l'enregistrement photographique, l'expédition n'est pas une véritable réussite : en effet, comme le craignait Janssen, les appareils officiels embarqués pour les différentes missions ne sont pas similaires et ne permettent pas d'obtenir des photographies comparables. Face à cette appréhension, Janssen embarque son révolver photographique : "Although Janssen disagreed with the official prescriptions of the commission with respect to photography, "a spirit of discipline" compelled him to follow its prescribed methods during the expedition he was charged to lead to Japan. Nevertheless, in addition to the officially sanctioned instruments, Janssen brought along some unauthorized ones, including his controversial 'revolver'." L'appareil présente une innovation de taille : il ouvre la possibilité d'enregistrer un corps en mouvement. Janssen parvient à penser théoriquement la photographie comme un enregistreur de temps ; "J'ai eu la pensée de tourner cette difficulté au moyen d'un appareil qui permît de prendre, au moment où le contact va 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" (Tome I, seconde partie, p. 296). L'invention préfigure le fusil photographique [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Leaves of Grass

      Camden, NJ: s.n., 1876 Author's edition. Signed by Whitman on the title page. Publisher's light tan leather and green marbled boards, tan title label lettered in gilt, decorative lattice pattern to the spine in blind, ruled in blind, yellow coated endpapers. A bright and unsophisticated copy, with some light rubbing to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, a few small chips to the spine head, some light soiling to the leather, otherwise clean boards, a hint of residue to the endpapers, some light spotting to the endpapers, minor scratch to the top edge, otherwise fresh and clean pages, sturdy spine. Overall, an about near fine and pleasing copy without any repairs or restoration. Scarce in such fine condition. BAL 21412. First published in 1855, Leaves of Grass is a collection of poetry that Walt Whitman continued to edit, revise, and republish over the course of his life. In its first iteration, the collection contained only twelve verses, while later editions included several hundred. This author's edition contains 195 poems, including "Salut au Monde," "I Sing the Body Electric," "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry," "One's-Self I Sing," "Unfolded Out of the Folds," and "Bathed in War's Perfume," among others. Inspired by his friend Ralph Waldo Emerson and the Transcendentalist movement, Whitman's poetry lauds the human body, the material world, and the American spirit. Notably, although criticized for its exultation of sensual pleasure and overt discussion of sexuality, Leaves of Grass was highly praised by Emerson and remains widely considered one of the cornerstones of 19th century American poetry.. Signed by Author. Hardcover. Near Fine.

        4 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Paris, Düsseldorf, Wien u. München, 1876 bzw. o. J. Zus. 10 S., 8° bzw. Gr.-8°. Der Priester Bernard Petitjean wurde nach mehreren Jahren der Missionstätigkeit in Japan zum ersten Bischof von Nagasaki geweiht. Er war als apostolischer Vikar zudem zuerst für ganz Japan, später für dessen südlichen Teil zuständig. Er besorgte auch ein „Lexicon latino-japonicum“, welches auf die Ausgaben des Ambrosius Calepinus zurückgeht und 1870 in der Römischen Jesuiten-Druckerei erschien. - Da sich nach dem neuen Handelsabkommen von 1859 vermehrt Ausländer in Nagasaki ansiedelten, wurde unter seiner Aufsicht 1864 die katholische Kirche Oura errichtet, die zuerst als Denkmal für die 26 Märtyrer von Nagasaki gedacht war (26 im Jahre 1597 hingerichtete Missionare). Das in gotischem Stil errichtete Gotteshaus ist eine der ältesten Kirchen Japans und wird als Nationalschatz eingestuft. Und hier begegnete Petitjean auch jenen 15 japanischen Christen, die bis dahin ihren Glauben im Untergrund praktizieren mussten (zwischen 1614 und 1873 war das Christentum in Japan verboten und härtesten Verfolgungen und Repressionen ausgesetzt). Dieses Ereignis ist als Wiederbelebung des Christentums in Japan bekannt. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius\' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Mislin, Petitjean, Japan, Nagasaki, Mission, Missionare, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

        JAMES YOUNGER.

      Taken in September, 1876 in Madelia, Mankato, or Northfield, Minnesota., 1876. This, the first photograph of Jim Younger after his capture, along with his brothers Cole and Bob, outside of Madelia, Minnesota, after their infamous robbery of the First National Bank in Northfield, Minnesota. See the image of Jim Younger shown between pages 40 & 41 of the classic account of the robbery, Robber and Hero, The Story of The Raid on The First National Bank of Northfield, Minnesota by the James-Younger Band of Robbers, in 1876 by George Huntington. An original carte-de-visite image, trimmed by a previous owner to 2" wide x 2.5" high, then protected in a rather ornate 19th century case, typically used with daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, or tintypes.

Image has a very small card 1.25"W x .5"H, describing image, affixed to the image under Jim's chin, across his upper chest, by a previous owner, many years ago. Otherwise, a clean, very good image. James Younger was born in Lee's Summit or Harrisonville, Missouri on January 15, 1848. Jim rode, with Cole and the James Brothers, with Quantrill's Guerillas. Jim was captured near Smiley, Kentucky and imprisoned until the end of the war. After the war, Jim joined Cole and the James Brothers in several bank robberies. In addition, Jim and brother John confronted 2 Pinkerton men and a Deputy Sheriff in Monegaw Springs, Missouri on March 16, 1874. The resultant shoot-out ended with John Younger and 2 of the 3 lawmen dead. Jim's demise began with the gang's decision to go north and rob The First National Bank of Northfield, Minnesota. Eight or nine men, including Jim, Cole, and Bob Younger, and Frank and Jesse James attempted the bank robbery. The failed attempt ended with the bank teller wounded, the bookkeeper dead, and a citizen dead in the street, along with 2 robbers dead, and several robbers riding hard to escape. Cole and Bob Younger were wounded. Jim Younger and Charlie Pitts stayed with Cole and Bob. Frank and Jesse James split-up from the others and successfully escaped from the myriad of pursuers. Outside of Madelia, Minnesota, Pitts and the Youngers were surrounded by a group of local citizens and lawmen. As the posse closed-in, a gunfight erupted resulting

        LIFE STUDIES OF THE GREAT ARMY.

      New York: Harry Johnson, 1876.. Forty plates. 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.

        REMINISCENCES OF THE TEXAS REPUBLIC ANNUAL ADDRESS DELIVERED BEFORE THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF GALVESTON

      Galveston, Tx., 1876. Recent half morocco. Scattered pencil annotations. Very good. One of 100 copies of the rare first printing of Ashbel Smith's important memoir of Texas diplomacy during the Republic period. "Written by one of the wisest men of early Texas, this is the most astute first-hand account of diplomatic activities leading to annexation. No one, with the exception of Sam Houston and Anson Jones, was more intimately involved in the process of acquiring international recognition of the Republic of Texas and bringing about annexation than Dr. Ashbel Smith....The text is personal but objective, a blended narrative of anecdote and analysis. Smith reviews the Texas border question, the various votes and movements for recognition and annexation in Texas and the United States, his activities in France and England, and the treaties which he negotiated" - Jenkins. Smith was born in Connecticut and educated at Yale, where he also received his medical degree. He became surgeon general of the Army of Texas in 1837, was appointed chargé d'affaires to England and France by Sam Houston, and later served as Texas Secretary of State. He provides a careful narrative of the course of Texas diplomacy from 1836 to 1845, covering shifts in mood regarding annexation in both the United States and in Texas, the Republic's relations with the U.S., European nations, and Mexico, and the activities of Texan leaders. "An able work by one of the really great men of the Republic" - Raines. Though reprinted several times, this is the true first edition of this vital firsthand report on the diplomatic activities of the Texas Republic.

        CAMP APACHE, ARIZONA, 1876

      [Camp Apache, Az.], 1876. Three short marginal tears expertly repaired. Excellent displayable condition. Matted and glazed, in a modern decorated gilt frame. A panoramic view of Camp Apache, a U.S. Army stronghold in the Indian reservation established on the White Mountain River in southeastern Arizona Territory to control the White Mountain and Cibecue Apaches. Indian fighter Gen. George Crook and his Apache Scouts (pacified Apaches who wore U.S. Army uniforms) operated from the base, attempting to control the marauding tendencies of the wild tribes. The fort was originally built in 1870 as Camp Ord under the supervision of Brevt. Col. John Green of the U.S. 1st Cavalry. It was renamed several times: first Camp Mogollon, then Camp Thomas, and then Camp Apache (its name when this drawing was done). The post was designated with its famous appellation of Fort Apache in 1879. In 1869, Green explained the strategic reasons for establishing the camp: "I have selected a site for a military post on the White Mountain River which is the finest I ever saw. The climate is delicious, and said by the Indians to be perfectly healthy, free from all malaria. Excellently well wooded and watered. It seems as though this one corner of Arizona were almost its garden spot, the beauty of its scenery, the fertility of its soil and facilities for irrigation are not surpassed by any place that ever came under my observation. Building material of fine pine timber is available within eight miles of this site. There is also plenty of limestone within a reasonable distance. This post would be of the greatest advantage for the following reasons: It would compel the White Mountain Indians to live on their reservation or be driven from their beautiful country which they almost worship. It would stop their traffic in corn with the hostile tribes, they could not plant an acre of ground without our permission as we know every spot of it. It would make a good scouting post, being adjacent to hostile bands on either side. Also a good supply depot for Scouting expeditions from other posts, and in fact, I believe, would do more to end the Apache War than anything else." The camp is pictured in 1876, shortly after Gen. August Valentine Kautz had taken command of the Department of Arizona. "G. Anderson" is not a recorded artist. Possibly he was a soldier with some training in drawing who was stationed at Camp Apache. An American flag, painted red, white, and blue (the only object in the painting not painted EN GRISSAILLE) flies above the parade ground. The camp is shown in fine detail, in the valley of the White Mountain River, with canyons and mesas in the near distance. More than sixty buildings are depicted, including headquarters, the commanding officer's residence, junior officers' billets, enlisted men's barracks, squad huts, privies, and work sheds. At the camp entrance in the right foreground, functioning as a decorative cartouche for the picture, stands an Indian brave in a feathered headdress, loincloth, and leggings, leaning on a long rifle. A fine historical graphic record of one of the most storied western forts.

        [SCRAPBOOK OF COL. HENRY LITTLE OF BANGOR, MAINE, CONTAINING NUMEROUS ITEMS OF HORTICULTURAL AND POMOLOGICAL INTEREST]

      [Bangor, Me, 1876. Folio. Original three-quarter sheep and boards. Spine and corners heavily worn, boards heavily worn. Leaves loose or loosening. Light foxing and soiling. Good. Henry Little (b. 1788) was the proprietor of Henry Little & Co., a Bangor nursery which flourished in the 1840s and 1850s, specializing in fruit trees. He was a veteran of the War of 1812 and was present at Castine when it was captured by the British. In 1829, then residing in Bucksport, he joined the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. Little moved to Bangor in 1836, where he established his nursery and became a leading figure in Maine horticulture. His life was spent in dedicated pursuit of the best fruit varieties for New England culture, and he wrote numerous articles on the subject which he contributed to local and national periodicals. He was a founder and long-time president of the Bangor Horticultural Society, president of the Maine Board of Agriculture, and a regular Maine delegate to national pomological conventions. In 1873, Col. Little moved to Boston to be near his children, at which time he was presented with a gold-headed cane by the citizens of Bangor. His scrapbook contains numerous clippings of his horticultural articles, some of which were published anonymously. Also included in the scrapbook are various addresses, his reports of conventions and exhibitions, his accounts of Canadian travel, an occasional letter written to him, articles of interest, poems, prints, and other similar items. His annotations are evident throughout. Among the more interesting individual items are a manuscript diagram of Little's property in Bangor, showing positions of buildings and gardens, all labeled, and a trimmed but still striking broadside advertisement for Little's nursery (dated 1846), with the fruits handcolored, possibly by Little himself. A tantalizing aspect is that Little used an earlier account book containing his nursery accounts to create this scrapbook, which, though obscured by the current contents, could be revealed by careful conservation. A fascinating artifact from this important Maine horticulturalist.
