        The City of New York

      Currier & Ives, New York 1876 - A fine panoramic bird's-eye view of the city of New York from the south, published by Currier & Ives. The developed city stretches to the horizon, with many familiar buildings easily identifiable and with Central Park clearly delineated in the far distance. Both the East River and the Hudson filled with ship traffic, including images of the steamers Massachusetts, Providence, and City of New York. Perhaps the most surprising feature is the large view of the "Great East River Suspension Bridge" (i.e. the Brooklyn Bridge), in anticipation of its completion some seven years following the publication of this view. Currier and Ives were the most famous lithographic print publishers of the 19th century. Among their vast body of work are a number of topographical views; these are usually restricted to the large metropolises and especially New York, which was not only their home town but also their largest market. Their strategy to attract their audience appears to have been to create very large, highly detailed views from a breathtaking bird's-eye perspective, and to issue new editions of this view to keep up with the ever-changing skyline of the city. Conningham 1107; Gale 1220; Reps 2721. Hand-coloured lithographed bird's-eye view, after and on stone by Parsons & Atwater. Numerous unnumbered references in the lower margin. Sheet size: 27 1/2 x 39 inches.

        THE DWALE BLUTH HEBDITCH'S LEGACY AND OTHER LITERARY REMAINS.

      London: Tinsley Brothers, 1876. - Two volumes. Rose-brown cloth, spines lettered in gilt, beveled edges. Portraits. Wolff's collation calls for an extra prelim in volume one not present here (with no signs of removal), cloth very faded and worn at the spine and edges, with some rubbing and soiling, Massingham's labels on upper boards, with related bookplates, internally good. First edition of this rare collection of fiction, edited for posthumous publication, with a memoir of the author, by William M. Rossetti and F. Hueffer. Wolff comments that the "death at nineteen of this brilliantly versatile and precocious artist and novelist, son of Ford Madox Brown, and brother-in- law of William Michael Rossetti and Francis Hueffer, deeply distressed the boy's father and all the brethren of the pre-Raphaelite movement. Both his books are rare." WOLFF 880.

        The Declaration of Independence

      [New York 1876 - The original plate from which was printed one of the most admired engraved versions of 'the most important visual record of the heroic period of American history' ('Concise Dictionary of American Biography' p.1082). The painting from which this image is taken was the result of eight years work by John Trumbull: this is not surprising when one learns that, of the 48 portraits that it finally included, a remarkable thirty six were executed from life. The painting, now in the Yale University Art Gallery, is undoubtedly Turnbull's masterpiece. ' Without a flourish, without heroic gesture, with the associations of power and elegance transformed into sobriety and determination, Trumbull's painting is not grand, but it achieves grandeur. There is not another like it in the world. The very immobility of the figures and the airlessness of the room suggest the frozen instant in which had been born the new state, to be led not by the caprice or ambitions of a monarch, but by the sweet dictates of republican reason.' (Irma Jaffé John Trumbull , p.117). 'As a national image, The Declaration of Independence has penetrated the American consciousness through reproductions in history books, popular magazines, calendars, and every kind of image-making medium.' ( Irma Jaffé John Trumbull , p.117). In the hierachy of the reproductions of this image, the large format steel-engraved plate produced by Ormsby must rank very near the top: indeed a copy of it is to be found in the White House itself. Waterman Lilly Ormsby, born in Connecticut in 1809, studied at the National Academy of Design and after working for others in Albany, NY, and Lancaster, Mass., he eventually set up on his own in New York. In addition to being an engraver of the first order (as the present plate demonstrates) he was also the inventor of a number mechanical devices, including the 'pantograph' (according to Stauffer). In addition to fine art, he also specialised in engraving for paper money, and was one of the founders of the Continental Bank Note Co. This plate, one of Ormsby's greatest (which still appears to be in good printable condition) is to be cherished as the matrix for the dissemination, through the engravings printed from it, of one of the most important images in American history. Trumbull: Concise Dictionary of American Biography p.1082; Groce & Wallace p.637; Sellers. Banjamin Franklin in Portraiture p.375; cf. T. Sizer The Works of Colonel John Trumbull . Ormsby: Concise Dictionary of American Biography p.751; Groce & Wallace p.478; cf. Hamilton Early American Book Illustrators and Wood Engravers 133, 467; Stauffer p.194. Original steel printing plate, engraved by Waterman Lilly Ormsby. Plate maker's mark 'J. Garside / Newark N.J.' stamped on verso. Plate size 24 x 32 5/8 inches.

        Notes of a Voyage from New South Wales to the North Coast of Australia

      Glasgow: privately printed, n.d. but, 1876. Octavo, photographic frontispiece, eight lithograph plates and four folding lithograph maps and another map in the text; fine bright green original cloth, gilt. A presentation copy from the editor, James R. Napier, to A.G. MacDonald (dated 7August 1876).Francis Napier joined the South Australian Government expedition under Captain Cadell. They were searching for suitable sites for settlement on the north coast of the state (now the Northern Territory). The expedition departed from Newcastle, New South Wales calling at Brisbane and travelling on to Cape York Peninsula. From Cape York it crossed the Gulf of Carpentaria to the Liverpool River, surveying that river and exploring the coast for about one hundred miles east and west of it. The expedition then returned to Burke Town on the Albert River, at the head of the Gulf of Carpentaria, and passing through Cadell Strait, and along the west coast of the Gulf, remaining some time at Maria Island… It discovered the entrance to the Roper River, from the Roper it returned to the Liverpool river, thence sailing westwards to Mount Norris Bay, Adam's Bay, and Victoria River, in search of fuel, food and water. The Notes outline the discoveries of the voyage including the entrance to the Roper River. These notes - which provide the only public account of the expedition - were compiled from Napier's journal by his family and privately printed in Glasgow following his death in 1875. A beautiful copy of a very rare book.

        "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.

        Daniel Deronda

      Edinburgh & London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1876. Four Volumes. First book edition. Contemporary half-calf & green cloth, all edges marbled, spines titled in gilt on panels of red. The inner front covers of all four volumes bear the decorative armorial bookplate of Joseph Needham, M.B., Assistant Professor of Anatomy, University of Aberdeen [the father, we believe, of the noted 20th century British scientist Joseph Needham]; all volumes also bear the binder's ticket from A. Brown & Co., Aberdeen. Splitting along the lower rear hinge of Volume 1, moderate scuffing and wear to the leather corners and edges, some inner hinges are cracking, but all are intact; in general quite a handsome set, the spines titled in script. This copy conforms to the first issue as described in Sadleir 813a; all four volumes have the initial signature of 4 leaves, not 6 as in the second issue. Also (though not mentioned by Sadleir) the misprint is present on page 83 of Volume I: ("reponsive" for "responsive"). It is bound without the erratum slip in Volume III, and without the final ad leaf in Volume IV. Half-title leaves are present in all 4 volumes. The book was first issued in paperbound parts, and most bound copies which surface are comprised of those parts bound-up; this copy is the first book edition, not bound from parts. An attractive copy of this significant novel.

Josef Grünstein war Berufssoldat in der österreichischen Marine, ehe er Journalist - u. a. Redakteur beim 'Berliner Fremdenblatt' - und freiberuflicher Schriftsteller wurde. Der Einakter 'Maidenspeech' ist Grünsteins erste dramatische Arbeit und wurde am 16. März 1876 im Königlichen Schauspielhaus in Berlin uraufgeführt. Über die Premiere hieß es u. a.: "'Maidenspeech' wird bald Repertoirstück aller hervorragenden Bühnen werden" (Deutsch-österreichische Theaterzeitung vom 19. März 1876). Im Jahr darauf wurde 'Maidenspeech' u. a. am Münchner Hoftheater und am Hamburger Thaliatheater gleichfalls mit großem Beifall begrüßt. Für Luise Erhart, die Darstellerin der Gräfin Rüden in der Uraufführung, war es eine ihrer letzten Rollen, da sie 1878 ihren Abschied von der Bühne nahm; Theodor Liedtcke, der den Grafen Holms spielte, war bis 1889 Ensemblemitglied des Berliner Hoftheaters.

        Original United States Flag, issued after the admission of the State of Colorado

      The 38th state joined the union on August 1, 1876 (thereafter often called the â??Centennial Stateâ?). This flag measures approximately 17 x 23 1/2â?, printed on what appears to be silk; some stains, minor fading and fraying; very good. Probably an early example: 34 of the stars are arranged on the blue background in a circle, an additional star in each corner. The official flag adopted on July 4th, 1877 and in use for the next 13 years arranged the representative stars in horizontal rows of 8 stars/ 7 stars/ 8 stars/ 7 stars/ 8 stars; with the standard red and white stripes representing the 13 original states.

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

      [Bangor. 1846-1876]. - Approximately [89] leaves, pasted with numerous clippings. Several small pamphlets or other pieces laid or pasted in. 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 specializing in fruit trees, which flourished in the 1840s and 1850s. 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 hand- colored, 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.
