        THE HUNTING OF THE SNARK

      1876. An Agony, in Eight Fits. With Nine Illustrations by Henry Holiday. London: Macmillan and Co., 1876. Original buff cloth pictorially decorated in black, all page edges gilt. First Edition of this poetical nonsense tale, both funny and subtle, that "describes with infinite humour the impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an inconceivable creature" [WM&G]. The crew consists of a Bellman, a Bonnet-Maker, a Barrister, a Broker, a Billiard-Maker, a Banker, a Butcher, a Baker, a Beaver and (the only one not illustrated) "a Boots." In his dedicatory verse to Gertrude Chataway, Carroll hid the child's name twice.~This is a near-fine copy: the light buff cloth has only the slightest of soil, and there is only very minor wear at the tips; the original endpapers are not cracked at all. In short, a desirable copy. Williams Madan & Green 115.

        Notes of a Voyage from New South Wales to the North Coast of Australia, from the Journal of the Late Francis Napier

      privately printed, circa, Glasgow 1876 - Octavo, photographic portrait frontispiece; with eight lithographic plates, four folding maps and a single engraved map integral to the pagination; original blue cloth with spare gilt ornament; a bit shaken, some maps creased, cloth rubbed, a good copy overall. Uncommon - the only public account of an important expedition to Arnhem Land in what is now the Northern Territory. The book features a mounted photographic portrait frontispiece of Napier himself, and has been inscribed and signed by the editor James R. Napier (the cousin of Francis Napier).In 1867 Francis Napier joined the South Australian Government expedition under Captain Francis Cadell to the north coast of the state (now the Northern Territory) searching for suitable sites for settlement. Cadell had a long and swashbuckling career in exploration and trading: he had earlier won the South Australian prize for successfully navigating the Murray in a steam-powered vessel, had been involved in the Maori Wars, and in the 1870s was a whaler and trader in Fiji and neighbouring islands. 'Early in 1867 he was appointed by the South Australian government to lead an expedition to the Northern Territory to choose a site for the capital and an area for agricultural settlement. He examined the Liverpool River, went up the Roper River in a small steamer and visited Port Darwin, Anson Bay and the Victoria River. He spent most of the year in thorough investigation, but the instructions on which he acted were misdirected'(ADB). His own report, published in the South Australian Parliamentary Papers for 1867, was openly criticised at the time.As a result, Napier's "Notes" were the only public account of the expedition and are an important document of the early contact and charting of the region. It was compiled from Napier's journal by his family and privately printed in Glasgow following his death in 1875. The plates, drawn with lithographic crayon, were done by one of Napier's brother, and are signed "JMN" Ferguson, 13058. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Manual of Cinchona Cultivation in India

      Calcutta: Office of the Superintendant of Government Printing, 1876. First. Plate. [ii], 80, 2, [2]pp. 1 vols. Folio. Original printed boards, slightly soiled, corners rubbed, preliminaries spotted. First. Plate. [ii], 80, 2, [2]pp. 1 vols. Folio. King's important work on the manufacture of quinine has become increasingly scarce.Quinine alkaloids and bark had become the standard treatment for malaria as early as 1825. However, methods of cultivation took were ruinous to the plants themselves and within 30 years demand for the bark (which only increased) was unable to be met. Forced to look abroad, cinchona plants - native to South America - were evenutally successfully cultivated in Travancore and Sikkim. As superindentant of the Royal Botanical Garden at Calcutta George King played a pivotal role in this andhad "urged his superiors that cinchonas benefits should be extended to reach all the population... By 1876 he organized the production of cheap febrifuge in Sikkim, out of crude extracts of cinchona, and its distribution through the Royal Mail's post offices in India in 5-pice packets (about one English farthing)" (Drayton). In 1887, he inaugurated "an economic method of separating quinine, and established in 1893 a self-supporting method of distributing the drug at a low price" (ODNB).

        qu’il est difficile de se poser à soi même quand on dessine

      - JACOB Max (Quimper 1876 – camp de Drancy 1944), écrivain et peintre français Lettre autographe signée de ses initiales à l’éditeur Pierre Aelberts. Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire Loiret 1er octobre 1926 ; 3 pages in-8°. Max Jacob n’a pas répondu à ses lettres car il était en vacances « mes voyages sont des paraphes très inattendus ». Maintenant qu’il est rentré « mon premier geste est de vous faire les plaisirs que vous me demandez : j’ai dédicacé les trois exemplaires, le « livre de l’aimé » aussi. ( ) Je vois encore le portrait qui m’avait coûté tant de mal car je lui voulais une pose qui m’est familière et qu’il est difficile de se poser à soi même quand on dessine. J’ai remplacé la signature autographe hélas ! Je n’ai pas plus que vous l’exemplaire de mes livres sur grand papier. Je suis même loin d’avoir tous mes livres ! J’ai recopié la page de manuscrit et je pense que vous êtes content de moi. ». Il lui envoie ses livres : « J’ai l’habitude des paquets car je suis loin de mes marchands de tableaux et j’en fais beaucoup que j’expédie par la poste ». Cependant il ne souhaite pas que l’album paraisse car il a « fait de très grands progrès cette année et je désavoue la manière qui m’inspira ce premier album. Celui que je fais en ce moment est très supérieur et je voudrais que le grand public ne connaisse pas l’autre ». Il lui rappelle en post-scriptum : « Aussitôt que vous pourrez m’envoyer les 1400 fr je serais acte de les recevoir car je compte passer une partie de l’hiver en Italie où la vie est plus chère qu’en France. N’y aurait il pas moyen de recevoir cet argent autrement qu’en chèque : il n’ya pas de banquier à St Benoît et c’est toute une affaire pour moi de toucher un chèque » [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        THE RECORD OF A COPPERHEAD. HOW DANIEL MARCY HELPED THE REBELS! HIS BASE BETRAYAL OF THE STATE! [caption title]

      [New Hampshire. 1876].. Broadside, 24 x 18 3/4 inches. Lightly creased, else very good. Archivally matted. Daniel Marcy (1809-93) was a New Hampshire sea captain and Congressman, first elected in 1863. He ran for governor in 1874, and this broadside attacks both his voting record and his integrity, accusing him of Confederate sympathies during the Civil War, a ploy known as "waving the bloody shirt," in effect accusing the opponent of murdering the sons of voters. The large broadside, which reads at the bottom, "Post this up in a conspicuous place," details Marcy's votes in Congress, which include tabling a resolution to abolish slavery; voting against punishing guerillas; voting against the appeal of the Fugitive Slave Law, and later against amending the Constitution to abolish slavery. It also includes the text of the only speech he made in Congress, which the author has labeled "Rebel Speech." Marcy was defeated by a narrow margin in the election, losing to the Republican, Person C. Cheney. A rare and interesting piece. OCLC records only one similar item at the New Hampshire Historical Society.

        "French Creek Canyon, Black Hill, D.T.," a watercolor showing the sheer canyon walls, from top to bottom, with the boulder-strewn stream below amid stands of pine and hardwood. Black Hills, Dakota Territory, 1875 or 1876

      Original watercolor, 9 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches, title, as above, written below the image, inscribed on the verso (visible in the frame): "To Col. Charles Bird / Adjt. 23rd Infty. / With compliments of / J.E.H. Foster / Lt. 3d Cavalry / Feby 12th 1876." The watercolor itself was probably painted in July, 1875, or soon thereafter (given the absence of snow, it was almost certainly accomplished before the 1875-1876 winter set in, i.e., before the 12 February 1876 inscription), when Foster was engaged under Col. Richard I. Dodge in exploring and mapping French Creek. Foster (1848-1883) entered military service toward the end of the Civil War and earned his commission as a 2nd lieutenant in 1873 (for a short biographical sketch, see "Encyclopedia of Frontier Biography," vol. I, p. 511). Col. Charles Bird (1839- 1930), the recipient, served in the Civil War, receiving notices for gallant and meritorious service at Fredericksburg, Spottsylvania, and Petersburg, beginning the conflict as 2nd lieutenant and ending as a colonel and regimental commander. In 1876 he was in the West serving as Regimental Adjutant of the 23rd Infantry and he continued his long service in the army until 1902 when he retired as a brigadier general. Fine. Matted glazed and framed (some scuffing to the frame). (#6004) An attractive, on-the-spot rendering of a site central to the events leading up to Lt. Col. George A Custer's fatal 1876 expedition. Painted in the summer of 1875, by an officer with the 3rd Cavalry, a topographical surveyor and draughtsman and a competent watercolorist, who served in the Black Hills Expedition during the summer of 1875, under Col. Dodge. It was the discovery of gold at French Creek during Custer's Black Hills expedition in the summer of 1874, and its official confirmation during Dodge's expedition in 1875, that set the Sioux on a rampage that led to the Great Sioux War of 1876 and Custer's defeat at Little Big Horn. Today the portion of French Creek depicted here is part of the 2200 acre French Creek Natural Area. At the time of the painting it was the site of two Black Hills Expedition encampments, Custer City and Camp Harney. Col. Dodge and his men, including Lt. Foster as his topographical officer, left Camp Jenny, on Beaver Creek, on June 9th, 1875, and reached Harney Peak at French Creek on June 13th. Four days later Dodge sent a telegram to General Crook: "Harney's Peack, June 17. Gold has been found in paying quantities on French Creek. Custer's report is confirmed in every particular." Once released to the press, the news brought the arrival of more gold seekers, aggravating the situation with the Sioux. On July 10, 1875, a note from Foter informed Dodge that "signs of Indians were everywhere in the vicinity he was surveying ... on July 15 Dodge pronounced as more than acceptable another map, by Second Lieut. Foster, of a scout he had just completed ... building on the work of Bourke, he and his two subalterns were on course to produce a visualization of the Black Hills topography that he thought would equal in merit any simialr image extant" (Wayne Kin's "Col. Richard Irving Dodge: The Life and Times of a Career Army Officer," U. of Oklahoma Press, 2006, pp. 206-211). In December 1875 the Sioux were ordered to return to the confines of the reservation by the following January 31st; they chose to ignore the deadline and the Great Sioux War ensued. The presentation inscription on this watercolor is dated barely two weeks after the deadline and must have been made shortly before Foster departed camp with his unit to fight the Sioux. Foster's artistic talents were also employed during the 1876 campaign. On June 12, 1876, five days before the Battle of the Rosebud and a week before Little Big Horn, First Lt. John G. Bourke, also of the 3rd Cavalry, wrote: "Lieut. Foster, 3d Cavalry, has made a series of creditable, rough pencil sketches of points of interest along the route: it is his intention to send them to 'Harper' Weekly' for publication" ("Diaries of John Gregory Bourke," edited by Charles M. Robinson, 2003-2010, vol. I, p. 308). Foster fought heroically on the Rosebud: "Captain Henry's battalion was soon exposed to heavy enfilading fire that was only checked by a brilliant charge made by Lieutenant Foster ... at the head of his platoon" (Henry R. Lemly "Fighting the Indians," in "The Papers of the Order of Indian Wars," edited by J.M. Carrol, Old Army Press, 1975, pp. 13- 18). We have been unable to trace any of Foster's sketches in "Harper's Weekly," but his work is included in the collections at the Museum of Nebraska Art.

Though dated 1876, this first printing was effected on December 15, 1875, and it was first listed in the Publisher's Weekly issue of December 25th.~This was the last volume of essays published during Emerson's lifetime: in the late 1870s he "gradually slipped into a serene senility in which his mind finally became a calm blank" [OCAL], and he died in 1882.~This is a bright, near-fine copy, with just the slightest of rubbing at the extremities. Myerson A34.1.a. Housed in a full morocco slipcase with morocco-and-silk chemise.~THIS IS AN ASSOCIATION COPY, SIGNED BY EMERSON: the front flyleaf bears the ownership inscription "Jeanie M. LeBrun | Decr 25 / 75.", and below it, in Emerson's hand, "R Waldo Emerson | 6 January, 1876." Jean Munro[e?] LeBrun was a Concord neighbor of the Emersons (as well as the Thoreaus and the Alcotts and the Hawthornes); her signature dated on Christmas Day (just days after publication) may indicate that this book was a gift to her. It was less than two weeks later that her neighbor the author signed it for her -- possibly she took it over for him to sign, or possibly he happened to be at her house on a visit.~Jean LeBrun would later become best-known for a piece she wrote to the Boston Advertister in 1883 (later published in booklet form), in response to the 1882 first book-length biography of Henry David Thoreau (who had died in 1862) by Frank B. Sanborn, who likewise had been a Concord neighbor -- a schoolteacher who could count among his pupils the children of Emerson, of Hawthorne, and of the elder Henry James. (And who in 1861, in fact, had proposed to, and been spurned by, Emerson's daughter Edith -- after which the relationship between the Emerson and Sanborn families was always tenuous at best.) In his biography of Thoreau, Sanborn was particularly harsh on Thoreau's mother Cynthia (who had died in 1872): for example (as quoted in Jean LeBrun's response), Sanborn said "Thoreau's mother had this same incessant and rather malicious liveliness... She was a kindly, shrewd woman..., with sharp and sudden flashes of gossip and malice, which never quite amounted to ill-nature, but greatly provoked the grim and commonplace respectability that she so often came in contact with." Jean LeBrun, noting that both Thoreau and his mother were no longer alive to defend themselves, did so for them.

        The Hand of Ethelberta. A Comedy in Chapters

      London: Smith, Elder, and Co., 1876., 1876. First Edition. 2 volumes; 8vo. The novel was originally written, in serial form, for the Cornhill magazine, which was edited by Leslie Stephen, a friend and mentor of Hardy's. Handsomely bound by Zaehnsdorf during the author's lifetime in green half crushed morocco with gilt titles and gilt raised bands to spines, gilt rule to green cloth boards, top edges gilt, marbled end papers. With 11 illustrations. Minor sunning to spines; light specks of foxing to first and last couple of leaves. Bookplate to paste downs. A fine copy. The events of the story concern Ethelberta's career as a famous poetess and storyteller as she struggles to support her family and conceal her secret—that her father is a butler. Beautiful, clever, and rational, she easily attracts four very persistent suitors but is reluctant to give her much-coveted hand.

        ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER / HIS LIFE AND HIS PHILOSOPHY

      Longmans, Green and Co, London 1876 - X, [2], 249, [3] pp. Original brown cloth with black title and decoration on front board, gilt title on spine. This variant binding with 2 horizontal lines on upper board and spine in gilt. Pages uncut, with portrait (Schopenhauer in steel-engraving) and protective paper bound in. Original black coated endpapers [rare and no longer available nowedays in sheets for restauration]. Some cloth missing at lower hinge [1 inch], however binding complete and strong. Some pages cut open a bit roughly at head of pp., no text missing however. Apart from being a good biography of Schopenhauer (most recent reprint in 2000), this first edition is important in the history of German intellectual life. Cosima Wagner notes on 4 February 1876 in her diary: Huebsches Buch von einer englischen Damen, Helen Zimmern, Biographie Schopenhauer's, mit grosser Verstaendnis gemacht. The copy sent to the Wagners resulted in an invitation to the Bayreuther Festspiele in July of the same year, where Zimmern met Nietzsche. Later (1886) Zimmern spent a few weeks in Sils Maria when Nietzsche was also there. Of the presentation copies of Jenseits she received 2. Her contact will have inspired her for the translation of Jenseits von Gut und Bose, published for the first time in 1907, and also included in the first English edition of the collected works a few years later at Foulis. An interesting copy in rare state. 4 in COPAC.

      O. O., wohl 1876.. 138:101 mm (Portrait) auf etwas größerem Untersatzkarton.. Die auf der Verso-Seite des Untersatzkartons aus dem Atelier des k. k. 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.

        Leaves of Grass [PLUS] Two Rivulets

      Camden 1876 - This set of the privately-published author’s edition, is inscribed by Whitman in each volume: “Godfrey Lushington from the author.” Leaves of Grass is additionally signed by Whitman on the title-page, and Two Rivulets is signed “Walt Whitman born May 31 1819” on the frontispiece mounted albumen photograph. Godfrey Lushington (1832-1907), the recipient of these volumes, was a British civil servant and reformer who rose to Permanent Under-Secretary at the Home Office in 1885. The set is accompanied by the original autograph note by Whitman, sending the books: “I to-day forward to you by mail a set of my Books – Two Vols. Please let me know if they reach you safely. Another set, same Vols. Will be sent you soon.” Leaves of Grass is today recognized as “America’s second Declaration of Independence” (Bloom) and greatest work of 19th-century poetry, but in his time Whitman struggled to achieve wide recognition. By the 1870s Whitman was impoverished. William Michael Rossetti issued in England a circular describing Whitman’s plight and inviting readers to purchase the new self-published editions of Leaves of Grass and Two Rivulets. Whitman thanked Rossetti, noting that “by far the most satisfaction to me (and I think it can be done, and believe it will be) will be to live, as long as possible, on the sales, by myself, of my own works ” Whitman later recalled, “Anything like unmitigated acceptance of my ‘Leaves of Grass’ book, and heart-felt response to it, in a popular however faint degree, bubbled forth as a fresh spring from the ground in England in 1876. [I had] some home customers, for them, but mostly from the British Islands. I was seriously paralyzed from the Secession war, poor, in debt, was expecting death Curiously, the sale abroad proved prompt, and what one might call copious: the names came in lists and the money with them, by foreign mail. The price was $10 a set. Both the cash and the emotional cheer were deep medicines; many paid double or treble price (Tennyson and Ruskin did) these blessed gales from the British Islands probably (certainly) saved me. Here are some of the names, for I w’d like to preserve them ” Lushington’s name then appears on the list of purchasers. This is a splendid pair of books inscribed by Whitman documenting a crucial turning point in his life and reputation. Matched sets in original bindings are rare in the market. Leaves of Grass: BAL 21412 (one of 600 copies). Two Rivulets: BAL 21413 (one of 600 or 650 copies). Two volumes. Contemporary half sheep, marbled boards. Rubbed, Leaves rejointed and Two Rivulets rebacked preserving most of original spines and labels. Fine matching half leather cases tooled to match the original bindings. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Lahr, 10. XII. 1876.. 2 SS. Gr.-4to.. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten zur Übersendung eines Gedichtes und mit einer längeren Auslassung über das Handwerk des Dichters: "[...] Lyrik kann ein Jurist aufbringen, besser als die Journalisten, die oft wähnen, Ihr Handwerk sei Dichterprofession. Ich glaube aber, es ist noch lähmender als der scharfe Umgang mit dem ganzen kunstsuchenden u. fliehenden Volke. Nur sollte doch Einer, der Schwingen an seinen Achseln fühlt, die besten Jahre der Kraft nicht in Aktenluft u. im Dintenhaus [!] verlieren. Man rechnet auf später, um Größeres zu vollführen; es geht aber nicht, wenn man den Beruf in Ehren halten will. Sehen Sie wohl zu! Reiche haben es darin gut, sie dichten aber nichts - oder selten genug. Eine anständige Stellung im Leben einzunehmen, hält einen wackeren Poesie-Menschen vom zeitraubenden und zweifelhaften Journalismus ab, er geht in den Staatsdienst. Ob er wieder loskommt? Es muß Einer wohl - ich rede nicht von ihnen, der Sie vielleicht glücklichst situirt sind - bei Zeiten einen Roman schreiben oder ein Lustspiel (Letzteres erstrebe ich schon lange) - um sich die Freiheit zu schaffen, dann kann er der Poesie leben. Aber auch das ist vielleicht Täuschung. Die fruchtbaren Schriftsteller schreiben doch am Ende bloß zwei bis drei gute Werke. Ob sie davon leben können? Sie geben darum Fabrikwaare. Nomina sunt odiosa [...]". - Der Sohn des badischen Innenministers Ludwig Friedrich Eichrodt (1789-1844) war im Justizdienst tätig und trat seit 1849 auch als Schriftsteller hervor. Gemeinsam mit Adolf Kußmaul (1822-1902) veröffentlichte er 1853 die in den "Fliegenden Blättern" vorabgedruckten "Gedichte in allerlei Humoren", worin "die mißglückte Aneignung bürgerlicher Welt- und Kultursicht durch die unteren Schichten" parodiert und "mit der Gestalt Gottlieb Biedermaiers einer ganzen Epoche" ein Name gegeben wurde (DBE). Neben Satirischem schrieb Eichrodt auch Dramen, Libretti und Gedichte ernsten Inhalts. Vgl. auch Kosch I, 423. - Die Ränder mit Resten von Verschlußmarken.
