        Balaclava : The return 25th October 1854 ; "The charge of the six hundred" photogravure print

      London, Fine Art Society 1876 - Paper size: 26-3/4 x 17 inches Image size (not text): 25 x 13-1/8 inches. Circa 1876. "The Charge of the Six Hundred" by Lady Elizabeth Butler. black and white photogravure (not a steel engraving), copyright, The Fine Art Society London Balaclava, the return, 25th October, 1854. . photogravure, copyright, the Fine Art Society London Survivors walking back after the failed charge of the Light Brigade; wounded, bandaged. and dazed figures, some mounted soldiers. Includes two stanzes from poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson. Professionally washed and cleaned, soft crease in bottom margin otherwise in near fine condition. Elizabeth Southerden BUTLER (1846-1933) BUTLER, Lady Elizabeth Born Lausanne, Switzerland 1846; died Gormanston, Co.Meath 1933. 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.

Housed in a burgundy quarter morocco solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. Ownership inscription on front pastedown. Extremities a little rubbed, spine very slightly darkened, shelf-wear to bottom corners of front board, superficial cracking to rear inner hinge but otherwise intact, text block solid, a very good copy, fresh and unrestored, scarce thus. First edition, published on 9 June, thus preceding the first American edition that appeared in mid-December by some six months. Twain chose to have the book published first in London to ensure copyright and perhaps also because he was more highly esteemed in Britain than at home. Oxford conferred an honorary doctorate on Twain in 1907, three years before his death, an honour grander than any he ever received in America.

In mid-1875 Osgood published the first edition in English, unillustrated, as a little volume in their "Saunterer&#39;s Series." In November 1875, Sampson Low published the first illustrated edition in London. Then in January 1876, Osgood issued some of the British sheets in their own binding, constituting the first American illustrated edition -- as here. In March 1876 -- just two months later -- Osgood&#39;s financial situation forced him to sell at auction the plates and unsold copies of the five Verne titles he had published; these were bought by one Albert Mason, who in turn sold them to Porter & Coates of Philadelphia -- who would then proceed to use the plates to publish editions of their own. (Porter & Coates also issued some copies with the Osgood 1876 title page, but with "Porter & Coates" at the foot of the spine.) As with the British edition, the volume also includes the early Verne tale "Martin Paz," though it is not mentioned on the binding nor on the title page.~This copy is in green cloth, and the gilt vignette on the front cover is centered (no known priority). It is a bright, near-fine copy (fine except for minor rubbing at the extremities). Apparently because of Osgood&#39;s then-pending doom, this is today a scarce book. Taves & Michaluk V014; Myers 47.

        Biographical Sketches of the Leading Men of Chicago. Photographically Illustrated

      Chicago: Wilson, Pierce & Co, 1876. Thick quarto. (12 x 9 inches). [1]- 258, [1-5]pp. 123 albumen photographic portraits by John Carbutt and others, each mounted within a printed gilt border, on a thin card leaf, some leaves with a mounted photograph on both the recto and verso. Publisher&#39;s black calf, the covers elaborately blocked in blind with a wide border built up from rules and a large Greek-key roll, the central panel with large corner-pieces of stylised foliage around a large central arabesque lozenge shape, all blocked in blind, the spine in five compartments with semi-raised bands. lettered in gilt in the second compartment, the others with simple repeat tooling in blind, marbled endpapers, gilt edges (neat repairs to joints). An extraordinary copy of this work, including more portrait photographs than any other recorded copy. This is a work which traditionally includes anywhere from 62 to 99 images: the present example, with 123 images, is the largest that we have ever handled and the largest that we have been able to trace. It is usually described as the second edition of a work with the same title published in 1868. However, the present work should arguably be treated as a new work as the changes and additions are so substantial. For example, the text has been entirely reset and indeed largely re-written with the entries brought up to date (e.g. the 1871 fire is mentioned on numerous occasions) and the number of individual biographies extended from 107 to 187. The only aspect of the first edition which does not appear to have changed is the inclusion of the fine portrait photographs by English-born pioneer photographer John Carbutt. Carbutt mantained a studio in Chicago for most of the 1860s, but sold to Thomas Copelin and moved away. Thomas Copelin, initially operating with a partner as Copelin & Melander, dissolved the partnership in 1871 when he took his son Alexander Copelin into the business. Alexander is the subject of one of the photographs in the present work (see opposite p.246). It is reasonable to assume that the photographs that were not in Carbutt&#39;s original 1868 edition, are in part, if not all, by the photographers of the gallery of Copelin & Son.

        Autograph Letter, Signed ("F. E. Spinner") to Angling author George Dawson, dated Jacksonville, Florida, Feby. 19, 1876, discussing Dawson&#39;s book of "fish letters" (Pleasures of Angling - [1876]), recounting a fish tale, and praising Florida winters

      Jacksonville, Florida, february 19, 1876. (FLORIDA) 12mo. 4 pp., pen and ink on a single folded sheet. Old folds. Fine . "Spinner, a strong nationalist, was an important adviser to Chase on matters such as the circulation of greenbacks (which bore Spinner&#39;s distinctive, hard-to-duplicate signature) and the creation of a national banking system. - Needing large numbers of reliable employees not subject to military service, he was the first governmental administrator to turn to women. He vigorously defended their employment against critics, hired over one hundred, paid them well by the standards of the time, and insisted on their continued employment after the war. - When a new secretary of the treasury in 1875 assumed control over the appointment of clerks, however, Spinner feared that dishonest people might be hired and he would be held responsible. He resigned and moved to Jacksonville, Florida, where he enjoyed a vigorous outdoor life until his death in that city." (ANB) Francis E. Spinner (1802-1890) served as Treasurer of the United States under Presidents Lincoln, Johnson, and Grant. In the angling world, he is notable as the recipient of letters from Oliver Gibbs, published as Lake Pepin Fish-Chowder (1869). In retirement in Florida, he writes to George Dawson, editor of the Albany Evening Journal and a noted American angling author, whose Pleasures of Angling with Rod and Reel (1876) is the first American book devoted to fly fishing. Spinner writes, "I am so glad to learn that you have been persuaded to publish your fish letters, in book form - when yours comes out, it will be read with pleasure." He then goes on to describe fishing for trout on McGirt&#39;s Creek, a tributary of the St. Johns River, and catching a cat fish of 18-1/2 pounds "on one of Chapman&#39;s &#39;No. 4 Minnow bait&#39; - I mention this, because I cannot learn from anyone, that a cat fish was ever known before to strike at artificial bait." Spinner concludes lyrically, "The orange, and other of the citrus family, are in bloom now - Whoever, at the North, that can afford to, and who has nothing else to do, and that does not spend his winters in this Elysium, is to be pitied. Do come." An excellent letter with outstanding content

        [Two Autograph Signed Letters to "Sir" [Richard Bentley, publishers] Regarding the Publishing of Burnaby&#39;s Famous "Ride to Khiva" in 1876]

      Windsor, 1876 Letter. Near Fine. No Binding. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Two letters: Windsor, 11 & 13 April 1876. Each 4 pp.; Octavo (ca. 18x11,5 cm); brown ink on watermarked laid paper with the letterheads of Windsor Cavalry Barracks. Near fine letters. [11 April]: "I have no objection to write a work on my travels to Khiva - provided the terms offered are acceptable - Several Publishers have written to me... & [I] am perfectly prepared to take into consideration any offer you may propose - If I were to write a work the volume would be about the same size as S[amue]l Bakers...". He goes on to describe how experienced a writer he is through being "The Times" correspondent in Spain and Egypt. If he writes something he has no doubt it will sell well "however I am not going to take the trouble to go into the book market on mere speculation." Another hand (in the publishers) has added notes for a proposition: "100 on day of pub[lication] / 200 on sale of 1100 / 200 on sale of 1800". [13 April]: Burnaby doesn&#39;t find their proposal "sufficiently definite to suit me. What I would require is a fixed sum down on the day the work is handed over to the Publisher - I have been already offered 750 by one firm & have not as yet accepted the offer as I am convinced that with the interest attached to the Eastern Question & the curiosity of the public to [hear?] what was the gist of my interview with the Khan of Khiva which by the way was of a highly political character - that the book would have an immense sale - There are several other Publishers also in treaty... - it would be as well to lose no time. I shall come to terms with the Publisher who offers me the best terms." Burnaby&#39;s book was eventually published by Cassell Petter & Galpin under the title "The Ride to Khiva" (1876). Its sale fully justified Burnaby&#39;s anticipations. "In 1875, on leave again, Burnaby departed from London on 30 November and in the winter travelled through Russia and Central Asia, enduring intense cold and frostbite. Evading Russian officials, and accompanied by a dwarf Tartar servant, in January 1876 he reached Khiva and was welcomed by the khan. Back in England Burnaby was lionized, and summoned by the queen to dinner at Windsor. He published A Ride to Khiva (1876), which he sold outright for £750. It was a vivid, lively travelogue, proudly British, in which he warned against Russian aggressive expansion through central Asia towards India, and denounced Russian rule as despotic, corrupt, and cruel. The book, vigorously advertised, sold well and was reprinted and translated. His journey and book made Burnaby a celebrity" (Oxford DNB)..

      1876. [the Michael Sadleir set] In Four Volumes. London: Chapman & Hall, 1876. Original reddish-brown cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition in book form of the fifth of Trollope&#39;s six "Palliser Novels." This is the tale describing "the triumph, the troubles, and the failure of my Prime Minister" [Trollope&#39;s Autobiography]. 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]. In addition to the Palliser family, Phineas Finn also figures into the plot.~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.~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.~This is a clean, bright, attractive set, essentially FINE (the merest of rubbing at the edges, one slightly cracked endpaper). Although THE PRIME MINISTER is not one of Trollope&#39;s scarcest titles, we seldom see all four volumes in such desirable condition. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 45. Provenance: speaking of Sadleir, his discreet oval bookplate is present on the front paste-down of all four volumes.

        Hayes Plans His Acceptance Letter For the 1876 Republican Presidential Nomination

      Hayes Plans His Acceptance Letter For& the 1876 Republican Presidential Nomination.& & The 1876 Republican National Convention was held at Exposition Hall in Cincinnati, Ohio from June 14 to 16, 1876.& James G. Blaine was the frontrunner and the favorite of party leaders, but he was tarnished by allegations of corruption; Oliver P. Morton, the choice of Radicals, was in ill health; Benjamin H. Bristow, the favorite of reformers, was hated by the still-popular President Grant; and Roscoe Conkling, the quintessential spoils politician, was unacceptable to reformers. As the favorite son of Ohio, Governor Rutherford B. Hayes was a true dark horse candidate. He had much in his favor, however. Both regular and reform Republicans liked him. He was a war hero, had supported Radical Reconstruction legislation and championed Negro suffrage, came from a large swing state, and his reputation for integrity was excellent. Distasteful to no one, he was the second choice among the supporters of the other leading candidates. The convention teemed with Hayes supporters, and Hayes&#39; cause was championed by the powerful Ohio U.S. Senator, John Sherman. When none of the major candidates could muster the votes of the majority of the delegates, Hayes became the convention&#39;s compromise choice for the nomination. William A. Wheeler of New York was selected as his running mate.& & On June 19, Hayes wrote to Sherman expressing his thanks. "I trust you will never regret the important action you took in the inauguration and carrying out of the movement which resulted in my nomination. I write these few words to assure you that I appreciate and am grateful for what you did." Four days later, Hayes&#39; diary states, "The nomination has been well received. The best people, many of them heretofore dissatisfied with the Republican party, are especially hearty in my support. I must make it my constant effort to deserve this confidence." & & That same day, he wrote a follow-up letter to Sherman discussing the nature of his to-be-written letter accepting the nomination. In it, he indicates that he is already being pressured by countervaling forces within the party to & & adopt their positions, that he wants to avoid getting pinned down by them, and is seeking to commit to as little as possible. Autograph Letter Signed, Columbus, Ohio, June 23, 1876, to Sherman. "I am very glad to get your good full letter. The next thing in order for me is my letter of acceptance. I am advised to harden by some, and to soften by others the money plank, and so on. Perhaps I would do well to approve it as it stands. I shall hardly reply to the Committee before the end of the month, or till after the 4th. If you have suggestions, you will oblige me by making them. My inclination is to say very little. The people are already organizing meetings, are ratifying, and the letter of acceptance may as well perhaps be a purely formal affair, may it not?" This letter, illuminating the new candidate&#39;s thoughts just days after his selection, is included in The Diary and Letters of Rutherford B. Hayes. We do not recall having another like it for any presidential nominee.& & In the end, he found it necessary to make his letter of acceptance, dated July 8, lengthier than he had hoped. In it, Hayes laid special stress on the necessity of reform in the civil service and declared his "inflexible purpose, if elevated, not to be a candidate for election to a second term," because he believed that "the restoration of the civil service to the system established by Washington, and followed by the early Presidents, can best be accomplished by an Executive who is under no temptation to use the patronage of his office to promote his own re-election." His letter also committed him to the protection of freedmen&#39;s rights. & & The presidential election of 1876 was until recently the most disputed in American history. Democrat Samuel Tilden defeated Hayes in the popular vote, and had 184 electoral votes to Hayes&#39; 165, with 20 votes yet uncounted. These 20 electoral votes were in dispute: in three states (Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina) each party reported its candidate had won the state, while in Oregon one elector was declared illegal and replaced. The votes were all ultimately awarded to Hayes after a bitter electoral dispute. Senator Sherman would be appointed Secretary of the Treasury in the Cabinet of President Hayes. &
