        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]

First Edition! - "The appearance of Strasburger's book in 1875 and Bütschli's long paper in 1876 prompted other authors to offer similar descriptions of mitosis in a range of different organisms. Among the earliest were W. Mayzell (1875) and C.J. Eberth (1876)." - "In his 1876 paper, Carl Eberth (1825-1936), then a professor of pathology in Zurich, quotes Bütschli, Strasburger and von Ewetsky. He, too, claimed that he had already been studying epithelial regeneration in 1873 and 1874 but had not appreciated the significance of the mitotic figures he had observed. Now, however, he was convinced that they were analogous to what Strasburger had described in plants. The figures accompanying Eberth's paper show essentially all the stages of mitosis in both epithelium and endothelium undergoing regeneration."

        Report of the Exploring Expedition from Santa Fe, New Mexico, to the Junction of the Grand and Green Rivers of the Great Colorado of the West, in 1859

      Washington: Government Printing Office, 1876. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 4to, pp vii, 152, + 22 plates (11 chromolithographs) and a large folding map. Original blind-stamped brown cloth boards, rebacked with new cloth spine and paper label, new endpapers. Text and plates very clean, map near fine, with minor toning. Macomb's mission was to locate a route for the movement of military supplies from Santa Fé, New Mexico to Utah and to map unknown portions of the geography in the western United States. Newberry was authorized to be the expedition's geologist and botanist. Publication of Macomb's account was planned for 1861 but was delayed by the Civil War, which allowed for the inclusion of Newberry's report. The map, which covers Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and part of Colorado, is described by Wheat (983) as "one of the most beautiful ever published by the army" and "a landmark map" both for its content (showing the routes of many other explorers in addition to Macomb) and the method of its creation by F.W. Egloffstein, who also made the maps for the Ives report. Farqhuar (23) notes that "the lithograph of Shiprock is one of the most pleasing scenic views made in that epoch." Howes M-179; Graff 2647.

        Matter and Motion.

      Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, London 1876 - First edition, rare on the market in this condition, of Maxwell's textbook on dynamics, "a masterpiece of natural philosophy, notable especially for introducing into physics the term relativity in a passage that combines strenuous scientific insight with a mystical awareness [It] had a strong influence on [Henri] Poincaré" (Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy, p. 209). "More light is thrown on Maxwell’s own opinions about the problem of relative and absolute motion and the connection between dynamics and other branches of physics by the delightful monograph Matter and Motion, published in 1876" (DSB). This book also contains, within a discussion of causality, a foreshadowing of modern ideas about chaos theory. Matter and Motion has sometimes been represented in the past as a largely non-mathematical summary of Newtonian dynamics but it is now recognized that it contains an incisive analysis of concepts such as space, time and acceleration that is a clear precursor of Einstein’s work that lead to the special theory of relativity. Article 18, ‘Absolute Space,’ includes the statement: "All our knowledge, both of time and place, is essentially relative." Maxwell also emphasizes from the beginning of the work the notion of ‘configuration’ of a set of points, which he defines as "the assemblage of relative positions" - this avoids the arbitrary choice of an ‘origin’ or ‘axes’ which would be needed to specify the Cartesian coordinates of the points. In art. 29 he represents such a configuration by a set of bright dots on a black field, to emphasize that there are no absolute measures of distance between the points. This can be viewed as an anticipation of Einstein’s use of generalized coordinate systems in his general theory of relativity. Later, in art. 102, Maxwell summarizes the first five chapters of the book as follows: "Our whole progress up to this point may be described as a gradual development of the doctrine of relativity of all physical phenomena. Position we must evidently acknowledge to be relative, for we cannot describe the position of a body in any terms which do not express relation. The ordinary language about motion and rest does not so completely exclude the notion of their being measured absolutely, but the reason of this is, that in our ordinary language we tacitly assume that the earth is at rest There are no landmarks in space; one portion of space is exactly like every other portion, so that we cannot tell where we are. We are, as it were, on an unruffled sea, without stars, compass, sounding, wind or tide, and we cannot tell in what direction we are going. We have no log which we can case out to take a dead reckoning by; we may compute our rate of motion with respect to the neighbouring bodies, but we do not know how these bodies may be moving in space." The latter part of the book is concerned with the problem of the aether, the hypothetical material that physicists at the time believed must exist in order for heat and light to be transmitted through empty space. "Maxwell writes: "Energy cannot exist except in connection with matter." But energy, in the form of light and heat, traverses the space between the sun and the earth. Hence, there must be matter "existing in the interplanetary spaces" and, in fact, "disseminated through the whole of the visible universe" (art. 108). This "matter," the "aether", cannot be gravitational in proportion to its mass. Yet Newton, by means of experiments reported in the Principia, demonstrated that all matter exerts a gravitational force corresponding to its mass. Beginning with Chapter VII, Maxwell therefore very carefully reviews the theory of the pendulum and its application to the measurement of the gravitational constant. In Chapter VIII he concludes, notwithstanding the experimental evidence, that "it is still extremely doubtful whether the medium of light and electricity is a gravitating substance, though it is certainly material and has mass" (art. 145).

        TOKUGAWA CHISEKI NENKAN KIJI: ANNALS OF THE TOKUGAWA ADMIN-ISTRATION. TOKUGAWA Y

      [Tokyo 1876, Manya]. Tryptich prints, with grass cloth cover. vey good, clean, strong impression, excellent color, accord-. ion folded, as issued, signed in block, clean, bright copy.. THIS WORK HAS ELUDED ALL YOSHITOSHI REFERENCE BOOKS ! IT IS. A DRAMATIC NICE SCENE SHOWING THE SHOGUN IN WHITE CAP SEAS A dramatic scene shows the young Yoshinobu [1827-1913], the last Shogun as he escapes, standing boldly on a small skiff as two young Samurai row him to safety, three other vassels one armed with Tangegashima [rifle] another holds the Shogun clan banner. Yoshinobu stands with determination on his face with one hand on his Katana [sword] the other holds his fan, he and all others wear their Hachimaki [head-bands] in a symbolistic "Fighting Spirit" display. Other vassels are in small skiffs as they all head in the same direction away from the shore to the awaiting Kanyoomaru, a large sailing ship. Yoshinobu returned the reins of Japanese government over to the Emperor. This was a very controversial move, and he was hated by the opposing forces who wanted the Feudal system to continue. The battle of Fushimi in 1866 took place in Kyoto. In an ironic move, the new Emperor Meiji deprived him of titles Court rank and sent a punitive army to Edo to supress Yoshinobu. Yoshinobu confined himself in Kan-eiji Temple at Ueno to show his penitence. By Imperial order, he was removed to Mito, and in 1867 was pardoned, but sent to Shizuoka. Created Prince in 1902. So ended the line of Jap- anese Shoguns. An historic work & emotional work. Yoshitoshi was an extreme nationalist, and always supported the concept of the Tokugawa feudalistic period, as well as the Emperor. His prints have always embodied the Samurai & Nationalistic spirit of Japan. His dramatic & often heroic prints show the important people and events of the time. This night scene is skilfully executed in dark colors with the white waves of a churning sea beginning to rise, as the smoke of the battle drifts over the sea as all participants look back in sadness as they retreat in loss and shame.

Rear Admiral John Moresby [15 March 1830 -12 July 1922] was a British Naval Officer who explored the coast of New Guinea and discovered the site of Port Moresby. . Moresby was born in Allerford, Somerset, England, the son of Admiral Sir Fairfax Moresby. He joined the Navy at an early age as a Volunteer 1st Class in HMS Victor, and rose to be in charge of the 1,031 ton paddle steamer cruiser HMS Basilisk in which he made hydrological surveys around eastern New Guinea. During the survey of the southern coast he discovered the harbour which he named Fairfax after his father. The town established there, based on already existing native villages [principally Hanuabada] was named Port Moresby and is now the nation's capital. . John Moresby was also searching for a shorter route between Australia and China and on the eastern tip of the island he discovered the China Straits. He continued exploring along the north west coast as far as the Huon Gulf. . On 29 September 1876, Moresby took command of HMS Endymion, remaining in this position until 6 March 1878.He was later promoted to Rear Admiral and died on 12 July 1922 in Fareham, Hampshire, England. *** WHO WAS VICE ADMIRAL HORNBY: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geoffrey_Hornby .

As a junior officer, he saw action at the capture of Acre in November 1840 during the Egyptian-Ottoman War. As a captain he arrived at Vancouver Island with a naval brigade and found that a unit of American troops was about to take over the San Juan Islands in a dispute known as the Pig War: he used his powers of diplomacy to facilitate a peaceful handover of the islands to the United States. * Color scans can be sent by email.

        KAKI SAIBAI HOH: THE METHOD OF PROPIGATING FRUIT TREES.

      Tokyo 1876, Shizusato. Blue stitched wrs., 4 vol. set, 24+33. +39+21 double folded leaves of text, 13 double folded leaves. of color illustrations, 25 color woodcut illustrations, 15 x. 22.5 cm., very good, clean, solid copy. FIRST & ONLY EDITION. STUNNING BOOK ON HOW TO GRAFT, BUD, PROPAGATE & MARCOTTE Reviewed by Tanaka Yoshiwo, edited by Sakamoto Noriyuki. * THE ARTIST: This work is stunningly illustrated in color woodblock engravings by the famous and celebrated Katoh Chikusai [his studio name], commonly known as Bunrin [flourished 1808-77], who's real name was Shiokawa Bunrin. See Roberts below for more details. * THE USE OF LATIN PLANT NAMES The table of contents shows the Japanese names of the plants discussed, along with their Latin names, using the foreign alphabet, in a symbolic way to show this work is a "modern" Meiji [1868-1912] period example. * STUNNING GRAPHIC EXAMPLES OF PROPAGATING FRUIT TREES This is a most valuable and rare early work on the methods of propagating fruiting plants. The elucidates the reader with superb insight to the current skill of Meiji-period Japanese plant propagators, employing what we would consider to be "modern" techniques. * THE CONTENTS; The first three and one-half volumes are the text. The first volume has a very handsome color frontis piece of the various fruiting trees addressed in this work: cherry, grape, persimmon, peach, pear & plum. The last half of vol. 4 begins the fantastic, copious color illustrations on how and what methods are used to increase known better verities. * ROOTING The planting bed is illustrated for seedlings or small cuttings, with protective "curtains" to keep the heat & moisture in. A kind of "cold frame" is also shown, with raised planting beds for cuttings for rooting. Seedlings and top worked cuttings also shown planted. Roots, and branches are made into rooted propagations. * PROPAGATING & GRAFTING Marcotting is accomplished by employment of a large bamboo segment, split in half, the bottom notched out to match the branch to be propagated, then the two parts aligned, bound & filled with soil until the branch sprouts roots, then is cut off from the mother tree. Variants to this show a branch being gradually bent to enter the soil, staked down, weighted with a flat rock as the new growth sprouts roots. * A final method involves the wrapping of the Marcotte with Wara [rice straw] in a ball with soil inside. * BUDDING AND GRAFTING The next major subject is grafting & budding. A prime branch is selected for its good scions to cut and use to graft onto older root stock. Cleft graft is employed, with details showing how to prepare both the rooted and scion to be grafted. To insure success 2-3 scions are inserted into the root stock, bound with Wara [rice stalks] & tied off. * Some small branches are cut to reveal the open wood & then bound to a rooted stock in a form of primitive "graft" while others are side grafted in the usual way, then all bound with Wara and tied off. * A form of "bud" grafting is shown, wherein the scion is dropped into an area prepared by cutting a flap in the skin so that the scion is inserted, and the flap replaced, tied off while the scion grows-in to the old tree. * Other brilliant ideas employed to graft and co-join scions to root stock & trees, as well as Marcottage. Pine trees are shown being cleft grafted to grafted to the top of an older tree. * A cherry is shown being clef-grafted to an old root stock. "T" budding is also shown on varieties of what looks like either persimmon or Asian pear. Other creative grafting techniques utilizing the maximum "contact" between scion & mother tree skillfully employed. One illustration shows the bending of a branch into the ground with contact grafts on three separate root stocks to hopefully gain new grafted trees. * CREATIVE & UNIQUE TECHNIQUES While many of these techniques now still in use, one wonders just how much of our current knowledge has come from such old and brilliant Japanese techniques. This work clearly shows us that the Japanese knew how to propagate & graft using a wide variety of complex techniques. Although limited to using primitive tools this work displays their great skill and good insight to methods which yielded substantial success. * THE SET: Volumes 1-3 Japanese text, volume 4 text and color illustrations from an 8 vol. set. *** RARITY: This stunning work has eluded the most famous bibliographers and Japanese botanic bibliographies. The work is obscure and quite RARE, not found in the standard bibliographies. * CONDITION: The books are bound in indigo-black dyed paper over stiff covers, solidly stitched, each with a cover labels. The covers are oxidized which is typical of books some 140 years old. It is expected that the natural & organic colors used to dye the covers to be in this state. The cover actually show both indigo-blue and black colors, with some variance and lighter color as well. The contents are quite clean on bright paper. There are some small old mended worm holes in the upper margin of several pages in vol.1. The last 14 pages of vol.4 has a small old worm hole in the upper part of the page, which does not greatly impact the color illustrations. Otherwise the work is solid and stable, by and large a very good example of a very RARE color illustrated woodcut work. *** PER THE COLOPHON: It states: "SEI-RI-EN zo-han" meanning the original wood blocks of figures are located in SEI-RI-EN. *** REFERENCES: ROBERTS, Laurance P.: A DICTIONARY OF JAPANESE ARTISTS PAINTING, SCULPTURE,CERAMICS, PRINTS, LACQUER. See page 11, under Bunrin. He was a Shijo painter, lived in Kyoto, pupil of Okamoto Toyohiko, also learned Nanga style. Bunrin is a well collected artist in world museum collections.

      [Osaka 1876, Sasuke Miko]. Green stitched wrappers, very. good, 13 double folded sheets, [26p.], 4 color illustrations. entirely woodblock printed, Japanese text. Matsukawa: 1820-. 1882. Original covers & title slip, 12 x 17.5 cm. R A R E. A HUMAN ANATOMY FOR THE JAPANESE Matsukawa Hanzan was a grand innovator & took it upon him- self to educate the average Japanese in agriculture, nature natural science, medicine and a host of other "foreign and Western technological & scientific subjects. He wrote many books with illustrations in an easy level of Japanese with Furigana to help read the sounds. This work was one those designed to teach the Japanese the workings of the human body, to remove superstition, and to assist in telling the true story of the various parts of the body & how they work- ed. A simple but important work, hitherto a subject of great taboo in Japan. Anatomy or human dissection was forbidden by Buddhist & governmental law. Buddhist prohibitions against the opening of the human body were very strong until the Meiji Restoration in 1868. After which there was a "Japanese Renassiance" and the opening of learning on all subjects. In this text, Hanzan shows the complete body, its bones named, anatomical parts, blood vessels, internal organs with funct- iton, descriptions on all body parts in the text. Hitherto books on this subject were not published in Japan, but eith- er acquired from Dutch traders in Nagasaki, or imported from China. Color scans can be sent by email.

        KINSE SHIRIAKU: A HISTORY OF JAPAN, FROM THE FIRST VISIT OF COMMODORE PERRY IN 1

      Yokohama 1876, Wetmore. Original stiff buff wrs., corners &. spine worn as usual for this binding, 148p., 14 x 22 cm.,2nd. edition, re-published from the "Japan Weekly Mail," notes.. OBSCURE PRIMARY RESOURCE. The authorship of this book is a bit "clouded." Citing the entry found in YOKOHAMA ARCHIVES OF HISTORY: THE PAUL C. BLUM COLLECTION A CATALOGUE OF BOOKS, volume II, p.171 entry #2754, they state the author's name as Yamaguchi Ken; however in Satow's introduction he cites Yamaguchi Uji, and the preface states Shozan Yashi, 1871. * The Rt Hon. Sir Ernest Mason Satow GCMG, [June 30, 1843 - August 26, 1929] was a British scholar-diplomat * This title KINSE SHIRIAKU is then a keen outline on the below historic events as Satow saw them. Its an excellent and primary account for many of the events, and is therefore RARE, and is also one of the first if not the first actual account in book form to cover in detail and depth these historic and chaotic events that thrust Japan in to its modern age. With the arrival of Commodore Perry in 1853, Japan was forced into a treaty of trade with the Americans. This forced Japan to be split into two major factions who opposed each other; one wanted to open to the West, the other against that and against opening Japan to be a modern nation. This work outlines this chaotic period, the people and personalities. The historic events and the eventual submission of Japan to Western "gun boat diplomacy." * Satow is better known in Japan than in Britain or the other countries in which he served. He was a key figure in East Asia and Anglo-Japanese relations, particularly in Bakumatsu [1853-1867]and Meiji Era [1868-1912] Japan, and in China after the Boxer Rebellion, 1900-06. He also served in Siam, Uruguay and Morocco, and represented Britain at the Second Hague Peace Conference in 1907. In his retirement he wrote A Guide to Diplomatic Practice, now known as 'Satow's Guide to Diplomatic Practice' -this manual is widely used today, and has been updated several times by distinguished diplomats, notably Lord Gore-Booth. * The Satow Papers were deposited at the Public Record Office after Satow's death in accordance with his will. They remain a largely unexplored and rich resource for 19th and early 20th century British relations with East Asia. * SATOW'S FASCINATING SOJOURN IN JAPAN: 1862-1883 * Ernest Satow is probably best known as the author of the fascinating A DIPLOMAT IN JAPAN [inquire we may have it in stock], which describes the years 1862-1869 when Japan was changing from rule by the Tokugawa Shogunate to the restoration of Imperial rule. Within a week of his arrival as a young student interpreter in the British Japan Consular Service, at age 19, the Namamugi Incident [Namamugi Jiken], in which a British merchant was killed on the Tokaido took place on September 14, 1862. Satow was on board one of the British ships which bombarded Kagoshima in 1863 to punish the Satsuma clan's daimyo [Shimazu Hisamitsu] for the slaying of Charles Lennox Richardson and the refusal to pay an indemnity demanded as compensation. * In 1864, Satow was with the allied force [Britain, France, the Netherlands and the United States] which attacked Shimonoseki to enforce the right of passage of foreign ships through the narrow Kanmon Strait between Honshu and Kyushu. Satow met Ito Hirobumi and Inoue Kaoru of Choshu for the first time just before the bombardment of Shimonoseki. He also had links with many other Japanese leaders, including Saigo Takamori of Satsuma, and toured the hinterland of Japan with A.B. Mitford and the cartoonist and illustrator Charles Wirgman. * Satow's Japanese language skills quickly became indispensable in the British Minister Sir Harry Parkes's negotiations with the failing Tokugawa Shogunate and the powerful Satsuma and Choshu clans, and the gathering of intelligence. He was promoted to full Interpreter and then Japanese Secretary to the British legation, and, as early as 1864, he started to write translations and newspaper articles on subjects relating to Japan. In 1869, he went home to England on leave, returning to Japan in 1870. * Satow was one of the founding members at Yokohama, in 1872, of the Asiatic Society of Japan whose purpose was to study the Japanese culture, history and language [i.e. Japanology] in detail. He lectured to the Society on several occasions in the 1870s, and the Transactions of the Asiatic Society contain several of his published papers. The Society is still thriving today. * Second stay in Japan: 1895-1900: Satow returned to Japan as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary, on July 28, 1895, and stayed in Tokyo for five years [though he was on leave in London for Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897 and met her in August at Osborne House, Isle of Wight]. On April 17, 1895 the Treaty of Shimonoseki had been signed, and Satow was able to observe at first hand the steady build-up of the Japanese army and navy to avenge the humiliation by Russia, Germany and France in the Triple Intervention of April 23, 1895. He was also in a position to oversee the transition to the ending of extraterritoriality in Japan which finally ended in 1899, as agreed by the Anglo-Japanese Treaty of Commerce and Navigation signed in London on July 16, 1894. * Satow was unlucky not to be named the first British Ambassador to Japan, an honour which was bestowed on his successor Sir Claude Maxwell Macdonald in 1905. * ++ Much of the above liberally quoted from the Wikipedia. ++ * There is a good chance, that we have many of the books referred to in this citation, or by and about the people: Harry Parks, A.B. Mitford, Charles Wirgman, the Japanese of the time, and of course others by Ernest M. Satow. Please inquire for a catalogue. Also we do stock a substantial number of period Japanese photos, photograph albums, and a host of other related rare books on this period ie : Japanese woodcut books and woodcut maps &c. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: + YOKOHAMA ARCHIVES OF HISTORY: THE PAUL C.

        Camp Apache, Arizona,1876

      [Camp Apache, Arizona], 1876. Gray watercolour, highlighted with red, white, and blue watercolor, on paper. Image size: 16 1/4 x 21 inches, sheet size: 20 x 25 inches. Titled in block letters in the lower margin. Signed and dated lower mid-left image: 'G. Anderson / Aug. 5th 1876'. Excellent condition, three short marginal tears expertly repaired. Matted and glazed, in a modern decorated gilt frame. A fine historical graphic record of one of the most storied of western forts: a panoramic view of Camp Apache, a U.S. Army stronghold in the Indian reservation established on the White Mountain River in southeastern ArizonaTerritory to control the White Mountain and Cibecue Apaches. The Indian fighter General 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 Brevet Colonel 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). It was not until 1879 that the post was finally called Fort Apache. The camp is pictured in 1876, shortly after General 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 stationed at Camp Apache. An American flag, painted, red, white, and blue (the only object in the painting not painted en grisaille) 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 head-dress, loincloth, and leggings, leaning on a long rifle. 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' Provenance: Kennedy Galleries (labels); Collection of Edward Eberstadt & Sons.

        Map of New York City south of 46th. St

      New York: M. Dripps, 1876. Folding lithographic map (39 3/4 x 26 3/4 inches), hand-coloured in outline. (Small clean tears to folds, small section at foot of title excised by the publisher, replaced with identical paper and with some manuscript work added). 1p. letterpress 'Catalogue of M. Dripps' Maps' tipped onto front pastedown of cover. (Small clean tears to folds.) Unbound, as issued, within original dark brown cloth boards, blocked in blind, with title 'Dripps' Large Map of N.Y. City' blocked in gilt on upper cover. A fine example of this pocket map, with a fully-coloured inset of a copy of Thomas Kitchin's map of 'New York Island' (originally published in the London Magazine in 1778) and interesting lists of Police Stations and sub-Post Offices, a street directory, and a key to rail road routes The title notes that the map also includes details '... showing new arrangement Docks, piers and water frontage also soundings and former high water line Elevated and horse car railroad routes, traced by characters, public buildings, churches, &c. Street directory and numbers.' The detail on the map is impressive, with numerous businesses, hotels, banks, theatres, etc. identified, as well as the route of the elevated railway along Greenwich Street -- the first elevated railroad in Manhattan. In the same year, Dripps also issued a two-sheet map which extended the area covered north to 135th street but was otherwise similar (the same inset Kitchin map for instance). Cf. "Checklist of Maps and Atlases relating to the city of New York in the New York Public Library" in the Bulletin of the New York Public Library, volume V (New York: 1901), p.71 ("Map ... south of 135th Street'); not in Rumsey.

        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.
