        Leaves of Grass [together with:] Two Rivulets

      Camden, New Jersey: [n.p.], 1876.. 2 works, octavo. Original cream half calf, blind patterned spines, light brown labels lettered in gilt, marbled boards, yellow endpapers. Housed in green linen chemises and dark green morocco-backed linen slipcases. 2 portraits in Leaves of Grass, albumen photograph frontispiece portrait in Two Rivulets. Some stripping of leather, spines rubbed and worn at extremities, joints split (back board of Two Rivulets holding on lower cord), spines of slipcases sunned; internally clean and complete with the terminal advertisement leaf in each volume. First edition, second printing of Two Rivulets; fifth edition, third printing, second issue of Leaves of Grass. Rare: around only 800 and 600 copies respectively were printed. The portrait of Whitman in Two Rivulets is signed and dated by the author, title page of Leaves of Grass also signed by the author. In addition this copy includes an inscribed sheet (tipped to the front free endpaper) and inscribed in Whitman's bold and distinctive hand: "Centennial Ed'n Two Vols/ Leaves of Grass/ &/ Two Rivulets/ bound in half leather &/ Italian boards/ Containing/ Autograph/ Portraits (three from life)/ Personal Memoranda in Secession War/ & "Democratic Vistas". A wonderful memento, as Whitman was personally involved in the actual printing of this Centennial Edition. Leaves of Grass, one of the great milestones of American literature, was first published in 1855. "Leaves of Grass and Two Rivulets... formed a complex, multi-faceted centennial offering that provided trenchant commentary on the century-old country, mixing indictment and praise, offsetting despair at failures with hope for the future, and juxtaposing prose and poetry" (Folsom & Price, Re-Scripting Walt Whitman, p. 106).

Elizabeth Thompson, later Lady Butler, was perhaps the leading painter of this genre of the late nineteenth century. Her famous quartet of paintings exhibited between 1874 and 1877 (Calling the Roll after and Engagement in the Crimea - Her Majesty the Queen; Quatre Bras - National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Balaclava - City of Manchester Art Gallery; and The Return from Inkerman - Ferens Art Gallery, Kingston upon Hull) established her reputation but her subsequent works never quite achieved the fame of these earlier pictures, in spite of such dramatic scenes as Scotland for Ever! (Leeds City Art Gallery) and The Defence of Rorke's Drift (Her Majesty the Queen). She continued to exhibit at the Royal Academy until 1920 but with few exceptions, all her pictures had military themes particularly soldiers in battle. While she never witnessed actual warfare, although she was in Egypt for some years in the 1880's with her husband, Lieut. Gen. Sir William Butler, many of her pictures were drawn accurately using models in some cases, or observing soldiers on maneuvers or practicing charges at Aldershot. For instance, when Queen Victoria commissioned the artist to depict the defense of Rorke's Drift, Elizabeth Butler went down to Gosport where the 24th Regiment was billeted upon its return from Natal, and made sketches from life. The soldiers even re-enacted the battle in their original uniforms worn throughout the campaign.

        Opposing "the Democratic Silver Scheme"

      Washington, D.C. 1876 - Manuscript Letter Signed, to Samuel B. Ruggles, Washington, D.C., August 12, 1876. 2 pp., 5 x 8 1/4 in. Representative James Garfield writes to Samuel Ruggles, a New York lawyer, Canal Commissioner, and businessman regarding monetary policy. Partial Transcript"I owe you an apology for not sooner replying to your interest lette rof the 24th ult but I have been so overwhelmed with work that I have hither to been unable to keep up with my correspondence.We have thus far successfully resisted the Silver Scheme, but the Democrats renew the fight every day determined, if possible, to carry it through. We have succeeded in getting in some good debate on the subject which I think will help to correct the public mind."Historical BackgroundThe Coinage Act of February 12, 1873 brought an end to the minting of certain silver coins, including the standard silver dollar, causing the demonetization of silver. Democrats later advanced legislation allowing the unlimited coinage of silver dollars in an effort to re-monetize silver, sometimes motivated by the suspicion that the Act was a criminal conspiracy to adopt the gold standard.ConditionVery good.

Joubert, S. Sangster, J. Franck et al. 58 pp. Folio— 35x27 cm. Green moiré effect cloth binding with black and gilt tooled decoration and titling to both boards and backstrip. Bevelled edges. Aeg. Corners and top / tail of backstrip worn as well as a few points on the bevelled edge. There is a reasonable amount of foxing, but fortunately this does not affect the front of the plates. Note: The binding for this book requires attention. The bands have become detached from the boards, the quires are still being held together, by the bands, but the entire text block is unstable and requires some work. The good thing is that apart from a 3 inch split at the ffep the endpapers are intact. I could arrange for my bookbinder to undertake the necessary repairs and these would be charged at cost. N. B. This is a heavy book [1.8 kg] and so postage outside the UK will require a supplement. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

        BEAUCHAMP'S CAREER

      1876 - In Three Volumes. London: Chapman and Hall, 1876. Original green cloth decorated in black. First Edition of this novel, published actually in November 1875, near the end of its serialization (August 1874 - December 1875) in The Fortnightly Review.~BEAUCHAMP is the first, and greatest, of his [Meredith's] less deeply personal books. It is political. It dabbles with ideology. It has much to say -- and nearly all of it severely critical -- of the condition of England in the middle 1870s. It is a strange, absorbing book, one that makes demands on the reader. It is lyrical, oracular, subtle in its shifting point of view, and funny too. BEAUCHAMP preserves its greatness as a political novel for the main reason that it is the expression of a paradox. It promotes no cause. It isn't Tory. It isn't radical. It floats the notion, everywhere now gaining support, that small is beautiful. [Williams]~This is an unusually clean, near-fine copy, with very little wear (a few faint cover marks, one small hole near the top of one spine) -- quite remarkable for a three-decker novel, as most copies (but not this one) went straight to the lending libraries where they would be plastered with labels and then rented out. Meredith's two last novels, from the 1890s when the libraries were dying out, do frequently turn up in this condition -- but not the earlier ones, such as BEAUCHAMP'S CAREER. Collie IX; Sadleir 1688 (and pp 380-381, where he ranks this novel eighth in scarcity among Meredith's fifteen works of fiction). Loosely inserted is the 1948 customs declaration when the most-recent owner of this set bought it from Myers & Co. of New Bond Street. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Illustrated Natural History: Mammalia: Birds: Reptiles Etc: The Natural History of Man Africa The Illustrated Natural History: Mammalia: Birds: Reptiles Etc: The Natural History of Man Africa

      London: George Routledge and Sons, 1868-, 1876. Four volumes, quarto, each with numerous wood engraving; handsome contemporary half calf, marbled boards, endpapers and edges, gilt spines. John George Wood (1827-1889) was an ordained priest, but from the 1850's he was developing a career as a natural historian; The Illustrated Natural History was his first book originally published in 1851. Wood's appeal as a populariser of natural history was spotted by the publisher George Routledge. Routledge asked him to contribute to a shilling series of handbooks which also enjoyed great success, Routledge followed this with a three-volume set of The Illustrated Natural History, which appeared in a number of editions. Many future naturalists were said to have been inspired by reading these books at an early age.
