        Voyage aux Etats-Unis

      1876-1877. Oblong folio. (13 1/4 x 18 1/2 inches). 19 original watercolours (11 3/8 x 7 7/8 inches and smaller), mounted recto and verso of 7 thin card leaves (one page mounted with 4 drawings, one with 3 and one with 2, the others with 1 drawing per page, the final page blank), all painted by a single hand, and all with the location identified in ink in the lower margin of each drawing or on the mount just below. Modern blue half morocco gilt, blue morocco title label centrally-placed on upper cover 'Voyage aux / Etats-Unis / 1876-77'. A fine series of original watercolour views of Lake George, N.Y., and elsewhere - including one watercolour of Central Park, New York. From the heading ('Voyage aux Etats- Unis / 1876-1877') on the first page of this album, as well as from the wording of the captions to the drawings, it is clear that these highly accomplished watercolours are the work of a French-speaking visitor to North America in 1876-1877. They include 14 views of Lake George and its vicinity (including one of Caldwell [now Lake George Village] and one of Tea Island). Also included is a single view of a rocky outcrop and trees in Central Park, another of Glenn Falls on the Hudson, and a third of the Montmorency Falls just outside Quebec, as well as two fine but rather unexpected Swiss views of Amphion, Lake Geneva (both dated 1877).

        Massekhet Baba Metziah min ha-Talmud ha-Bavli/ Talmud Babylonicum: Tractat Baba Mezia. Mit deutscher Übersetzung und Erklärung

      Julius Benzian Berlin: Julius Benzian, 1876. First edition. Hardcover. vg. Elephant folio. 174pp. 3/4 blue leather over marbled boards. Gilt lettering to spine. Raised bands. Marbled endpapers. Excellent compilation and translation of one of the core Jewish texts, the Babylonian Talmud, tractat "Baba Mezia". In a very unusual manner, the original Talmudic text in the center of each page is in the original Hebrew, while the commentary surrounding the text on all sides is in German. As stated by OCLC, this edition was meant as the first part of a series covering the whole Talmud. However, it wasn't continued and this volume remains the only one ever published. Minor age wear to binding. Browning throughout. Otherwise clean and tight. Very good condition.

        The Theory of Color in its Relation to Art and Art-Industry

      Boston: L. Prang, 1876. Octavo. xxxiii, 274pp., + thirteen plates. American edition, revised and enlarged by the author. With an introduction by Edward C. Pickering, a professor of Physics at MIT. Illustrated throughout with many woodcuts, as well as the thirteen chromolithograph plates. The first plate depicts the spectra of sunlight and color pigments, and the second plate shows Bezold's versions of color wheels. Other plates illustrate the illusion of how colors appear to change when juxtaposed against other colors. Six of the plates have text printed in black on paper of various colors, with white tissue guards. When overlaid with the tissue, the black lettering appears to take on tinges of color. Bezold was a physicist and meteorologist working at the Royal Polytechnic School in Munich, and his approach to color theory was intended to be practical for artists and those working in applied arts. Many of his examples are drawn from the decorative arts throughout history, especially from textiles and ornamental mosaics. According to "A Color Bibliography" by Robert L. Herbert, published in the Yale University Library Gazette, "Bezold represents the generation beyond Maxwell and Helmholz, when the distinction between color-light and color-pigment was at last clearly understood in the scientific world." Bound in original light brown cloth, gilt-titled to spine. First signature slightly loose, some wear to spine ends, else fine.

        The Hunting of the Snark

      London - Macmillan and Co, 1876 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Lewis Carroll's much-loved nonsense poem, with the wonderful illustrations of Henry Holiday. First edition, fourteenth thousand printing. The Hunting of the Snark was written by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) in 1874, when he was 42 years old. It describes with infinite humour the impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an inconceivable creature. The poem borrows occasionally from Carroll's short poem Jabberwocky in Through the Looking-Glass (especially the poem's creatures and portmanteau words), but it is a stand-alone work. Some literary critics feel that the Snark is within the nonsense tradition of Thomas Hood and, especially, W. S. Gilbert, the librettist of the famous Gilbert and Sullivan team. Edward Guiliano even believes that a case can be made for a direct influence of Gilbert's Bab Ballads on the Snark, based on the fact that Carroll was well acquainted with the comic writing and the theatre of his age. In the pictorial buff cloth boards of the earlier printings of the first edition. Copperplate inscription to verso of front free endpaper: Evelyn Emma Plant. From H. D. Everett. December 25th 1876. Publisher's catalogue to rear, advertising Carroll's Alice books in English and in foreign translations. Condition: In original pictorial cloth binding. Externally, a trifle worn with slight bumping to foredge of front board. Slight loss to cloth of spine and wear to head and tail of spine also. Joints have split and hinges are strained but holding firm. Internally, generally firmly bound. Generally bright and clean with the odd spot and foxing to rear endpaper. Overall: GOOD.

        Daniel Deronda

      Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and Sons, 1876 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition of George Eliot&#39;s satirical novel, Daniel Deronda. It was the last novel she completed and the only one set in the contemporary Victorian society of her day. Its mixture of social satire and moral searching, along with a sympathetic rendering of Jewish proto-Zionist and Kabbalistic ideas has made it a controversial final statement of one of the greatest of Victorian novelists. Including half titles, but missing thepublisher&#39;s advertisements. Daniel Deronda is full of references to spiritual, archetypal, and mythological imagery, from the Kabbalism of Mordecai to the encounter of Lydia Glasher with Gwendolen among a group of standing stones and Gwendolen&#39;s reaction to the image of a dying man. Of all of Eliot&#39;s novels, this is the most mystical with an analysis of religious belief as a progressive force in human nature, albeit a non-Christian one. Complete in four volumes, bound in eight. Bookplate of W. H. Smith and Son&#39;s Subcription Library to front pastedowns. Condition: In cloth bindings. Externally, rather worn. Cloth is bumped, with some marks, and sunning to the spines. Spines are slightly cocked. 7 hinges strained. Internally, generallyfirmly bound although slightly strained in places. Pages are bright, though with some light patches of foxing throughout. Overall: GOOD ONLY..

        The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

      Hartford, Conn.: The American Publishing Company,, 1876. Square octavo. Original blue vertically-ribbed cloth decoratively stamped in black and gilt and lettered in gilt and blind on front cover and spine, back cover decoratively stamped in black with publisher&#39;s device stamped in black in the centre, peach endpapers. Blue morocco slipcase and chemise, lettered gilt. Wood-engraved frontispiece and numerous wood-engraved text illustrations by True Williams and others. Very slight rubbing and/or fraying to corners and spine extremities, inner hinges with some short superficial cracking, still an excellent copy, the cloth bright and fresh. First American edition, first printing, printed on wove paper, with the half-title and frontispiece printed on separate leaves (verso of half-title and recto of frontispiece blank). The American edition was published around the beginning of December 1876, preceded by the London edition published in June the same year. Mark Twain had moved to Hartford to work with the publisher Elisha Bliss, Jr. of the American Publishing Company. At the time, Hartford was a publishing centre with twelve publishers, and the town had the highest per-capita income of any city in the United States. Tom Sawyer proved such a success that Twain was able to hire Tiffany to supervise the redecoration of his Hartford house. It also inspired him, somewhat less successfully, to found his own publishing house, Charles L. Webster and Company, which had success with its first two publications, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and the Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant, but went bankrupt by 1894.

        Camp Apache, Arizona,1876

      [Camp Apache, Arizona]: August 5, 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: &#39;G. Anderson / Aug. 5th 1876&#39;. 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. &#39;G. Anderson&#39; 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&#39;s residence, junior officers&#39; billets, enlisted men&#39;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: &#39;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&#39; Provenance: Kennedy Galleries (labels); Collection of Edward Eberstadt & Sons.

        ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE MANNERS, CUSTOMS, & CONDITION OF THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS. WITH LETTERS AND NOTES

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1876. First Edition. Leather-backed boards. Early library stamp on the title page of the second volume and old ink numbers on the verso of both title pages. Plates and text bright and fresh with the bindings quite nice. Near Fine set and uncommon in this condition. First published in 1841, this is the First Edition of this classic with illustrations printed in color. Two small quarto volumes (6-1/8" x 10-1/8") bound in the original red cloth with gilt-decorated horsemen and lettering against a red and black background recently rebacked with sympathetic red morocco spines with gilt-lettering and decorations and new endpapers. Complete: viii, 264; viii, 266 pages. Illustrated with 180 superb color plates containing 360 images and a folding map, with the usual plate numbering anomalies. There was a prior edition with hand-colored plates, but only about a dozen copies were produced and it is seldom offered on the market. (We have a copy if you are seriously searching for one.) This 1876 edition is generally considered to be the handsomest 19th century edition of Catlin's important book. Catlin was the first astute and sympathetic artist to observe and accurately portray Native Americans. Howes C241; Sabin 11536 (1841 edition); Streeter 1805 (1841); Wagner-Camp 84 (1841+ editions); Wheat, TRANSMISISIPPI WEST 84: "Offers an excellent picture of the Indian situation at the opening of the 19th century's fourth decade." Jenkins, A FULL HOWES: "Catlin's record of Indian life was the first and freshest account of the vanishing American Indians as they actually lived and remains one of the chief sources for all later knowledge of the North American Indians.

        Illustrations of the Manners, Customs, and Condition of the North American Indians With letters and notes written during eight years of travel and adventure among the wildest and most remarkable tribes now existing

      London: J.Ogden & Co. for Chatto & Windus, 1876. 2 volumes, 8vo. (10 x 6 1/4 inches). 313 colour-printed plates (on 180 sheets), including 3 maps (1 folding). Publisher&#39;s original red cloth, blocked in gilt and black on the upper covers and spines (neatly recased, small neat repairs to head and foot of spines). One of the most important accounts of native- American life, and an invaluable and generally sympathetic record of a "truly lofty and noble race&#133;A numerous nation of human beings...three- fourths of whose country has fallen into the possession of civilized man...twelve million of whose bodies have fattened the soil in the mean time; who have fallen victims to whiskey, the small-pox, and the bayonet" (Catlin pp.3-4). Catlin summarized the native American as "an honest, hospitable, faithful, brave, warlike, cruel, revengeful, relentless, - yet honourable, contemplative and religious being". He saw no future for either their way of life or their very existence, and with these thoughts always at the back of his mind he worked, against time, and set himself a truly punishing schedule, to record what he saw. The record he left is unique, both in its breadth and also in the sympathetic understanding that his images constantly demonstrate. Howes C241.

        THE PRIME MINISTER

      1876. hardcover. <center><b>the fifth "Palliser novel," four volumes in original cloth</b></center> Trollope, Anthony. THE PRIME MINISTER. In Four Volumes. London: Chapman & Hall, 1876. Original reddish-brown cloth decorated in gilt. 4 vols. <p>First Edition in book form. This is the tale describing "the triumph, the troubles, and the failure of my Prime Minister" [Trollope&#39;s <i>Autobiography</i>]. Its major theme is "a study of two divergent temperaments: the Duchess striving to make her husband the greatest figure of his time, and he conscious only of his duties and responsibilities" [Gerould]. The Palliser family and Phineas Finn also figure into the plot.</p> <p>During the decade following Dickens&#39;s death (1870), the vogue of serial parts went into a rapid decline. In an effort to revive the idea, publishers tried out the concept of issuing a novel in eight five-shilling parts, unillustrated; only a handful of novels came out in this fashion before it was deemed a miserable failure. Included were George Eliot&#39;s MIDDLEMARCH (1872) and DANIEL DERONDA (1876) -- plus Trollope&#39;s THE PRIME MINISTER. Thus the sheets were first issued in eight wrappered parts, but with every two volumes continuously-paginated for this four volume book edition.</p> <p>As Sadleir points out, leaves were printed on two thicknesses of paper: "Parts and volumes exist, sometimes uniform in paper-quality and sometimes mixed. No evidence of issue is provided by such varieties; the paper was obviously supplied in mixed qualities to the printer." In this set, the first three volumes appear to be on the heavier paper, and the fourth on the lighter paper.</p> <p>This is a bright, attractive set, very good to near-fine. The volumes have slightly darkened spines which have very minor wear at the ends, but otherwise all volumes&#39; wear is limited to a few small cover marks or spots; all eight endpapers are original and intact (and bear the same 1884 signature). This set has <i>not</i> been re-cased or re-backed or otherwise "improved." Although THE PRIME MINISTER is not one of Trollope&#39;s scarcest titles, we seldom see all four volumes in such desirable condition.

        The Declaration of Independence

      [New York?: no date, but c.1876]. Original steel printing plate, engraved by Waterman Lilly Ormsby. Plate maker&#39;s mark &#39;J. Garside / Newark N.J.&#39; stamped on verso. Plate size 24 x 32 5/8 inches. The original plate from which was printed one of the most admired engraved versions of &#39;the most important visual record of the heroic period of American history&#39; (&#39;Concise Dictionary of American Biography&#39; 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&#39;s masterpiece. &#39; Without a flourish, without heroic gesture, with the associations of power and elegance transformed into sobriety and determination, Trumbull&#39;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.&#39; (Irma Jaffé John Trumbull, p.117). &#39;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.&#39; ( 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 &#39;pantograph&#39; (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&#39;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.

Some rubbing to corners, internally very clean, a very good copy. Author&#39;s Edition, Inscribed by the author to Robert Spence Watson on the front free endpaper. Robert Spence Watson (1837&#150;1911) was a Gateshead-born Quaker, an ardent traveller and mountaineer, a lifelong adherent of the Liberal Party, founder of the college that was to become the University of Newcastle, president of the Society of Friends of Russian Freedom, and a pioneer in the settlement of trade disputes by arbitration. He published ten books, including some poetry. It is unlikely that he actually met Whitman in the flesh, although he also owned the companion volume, Two Rivulets, inscribed to him by Whitman the same year.
