        Nouveau traité élémentaire et pratique des maladies mentales, suivi de considérations pratiques sur l'administration des asiles d'aliénés

      Paris, Jean-Baptiste Baillière et fils, 1876. 1876, 1876, in-8, de (4), IV, 732, 8 planches, 1 carte, percaline bordeaux imprimé or sur le dos et à froid sur les plats (dos légèrement insolé), Nouvelle édition de cet important ouvrage qui fut publié pour la première fois en 1862. Cette édition contient, pour la première fois, des photographies de malades mentaux : 8 planches en photoglyptie représentant 33 types d'aliénés (maniaques, lypémaniaques, stupides, mégalomanes, fous impulsifs, déments, imbéciles et idiots et crétins). La carte finale propose une vue d'ensemble de la situation des établissements d'aliénés. Cet ouvrage trouve son origine dans le cours de psychiatrie qu'Henri Dagonet (1823-1902) avait créé à la faculté de médecine de Strasbourg. Suivant l'exemple de Pinel et d'Esquirol, il avait adopté une classification des maladies mentales basée sur l'observation clinique et sur la symptomatologie tout en considérant qu'une classification parfaite est impossible. Nommé médecin-chef de l'asile de Sainte-Anne à Paris (1867), il le réforma et y ouvrit des cours pour le personnel infirmier. Il s'agit d'un des tous premiers ouvrages de psychiatrie illustrés par la photographie. Bon exemplaire, très frais et en partie non coupé, dans son cartonnage d'origine. Photoglypties aux contrastes bien conservés. Relié en fin de volume : Bulletin mensuel de la Librairie J.-B. Baillière et Fils, de Mai 1876 (8, 4, 4pp.) Tampons Ex-libris du Docteur Carrier, de Lyon, sur les pages de faux-titre et de titre

Contains 92 black-and-white illustrations. Minor foxing and soiling scattered lightly throughout text, and a few pages with minor paper defects. Paher 1179: "De Quille has written the greatest of all the Comstock books and probably the best single book on any Western mining camp. It is source material complete with introduction by Mark Twain, who roomed and shared offices with Dan in 1862..." H.H. Bancroft says of this work: "A curious medley of historical facts and humorous phases of society in connection with a mining excitement that brought about, in a measure, the flush times of El Dorado, and raised Nevada from a country appendage to a state. It is full of stirring incidents and anecdotes, and delights in rough characters and dialoges." -Cowan. Johnson says of it in his "Bibliography of Mark Twain": "One-page Introductory is by Mark Twain. This book is very desirable to the admirer of Twain, as it was written by a fellow worker on the Virginia City Enterprise, of Nevada, who figured as one of the characters of Roughing It, and is a most readable supplement and commentary on same."

        Fire Protection. A complete manual of the organization, machinery, discipline, and general working, of the fire brigade of London.

      - London, Charles and Edwin Layton 1876. Octavo publisher's cloth; xiii,332pp and an illustrated 64 page 'Appendix of Manufacturers' and other Advertisements, having reference to Fire Protection', numerous illustrations and diagrams, a plate and a double page map. Some foxing at the ends but a rather good copy. Uncommon and essential in fire fighting history. As far as Shaw was concerned this was the first attempt in any language 'approaching to a complete or comprehensive scheme' to embody the essential principles and practice of fire fighting. In other countries printed manuals 'of some kind or another have been in use for many years . but they are meagre in the extreme and . altogether useless for the instruction of fire brigades charged with the protection of great commercial cities'. Shaw was of course responsible for the modern London fire department, in turn the model for fire departments around the world. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

With full page biographies of each of the subjects. The Woodburytype process involved the preparation of photosensitive plates and multiple layers of tinted gelatin. The resultant images are famous for their clarity and for the spectacular depth. However the process was also expensive as each plate could produce as few as 50 copies before needing replacement so the method soon fell out of favour and other less expensive, albethey less clear processes of photomechanical reproduction were developed.

A partially printed pardon signed and dated by U.S. Grant as ""19th April 1876"", and ""U.S. Grant"". Near fine with expected folds.A wonderful clean example of a warrant for a pardon for ""the order for the respite of the execution of the sentence in the case of Osi Sandlos"" by President U.S. Grant. During Grant's presidency, he pardoned, commuted or rescinded the convictions of 1,332 people during his term. Although many of the people he pardoned were part of the Confederate army, Grant's presidency revealed scandals and fraudulent activities associated with his administration. His cabinet was in continual transition, divided by the forces of political corruption and reform. President Grant, ever trusting of his associates, found himself influenced by both forces. Grant's reactions to the scandals ranged from prosecuting the perpetrators to protecting or pardoning those who were accused and convicted of the crimes."

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1876 - 1876 1877 1878 Paperback Wisdens with Facsimile Covers. VG

      1876. Hi, I recently purchases a rebind in fabulous condition, inside the binding were 1876 through to 1878 but it was in such good condition I decided to split them out and had facsimile covers added to them hence, and to keep them together ... This lot is a set of three Original Wisdens 1876 , 1877 and 1878 , Paperbacks with facsimile spines and covers in very good condition. The books are in very good condition, the pages are very clean and pretty much unmarked. There is a touch of foxing to the 1877 but it is only slight and to the odd page, the other two have minimal foxing. Although it used to be rebound there is not much trimming with nice margins. A fabulous set of 3 early Wisdens at a great price.

        ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER

      Hartford: The American Publishing Co., 1876. First Edition, BAL’s early state “B” with illustration on verso of half-title and xvi foliated, with mispaginations as called for . Printed on laid paper. Both this and the first issue were released on the same day of publication in equal numbers. With one-hundred and sixty black and white illustrations of such memorable as Injun Joe, Aunt Polly, Becky Thatcher, and of course Tom Sawyer. 8vo, publisher’s original blue cloth elaborately decorated in gilt and black on the covers and spine. [i-xii], with [ix, x, xii mispaged xii, xiii, and xvi as called for], [17], 18-274 [-276], [4] ads pp. A very handsome copy in a pleasing state of preservation, the text-block is very clean and unusually well preserved, the binding with only very light evidence of edge-wear or shelving, the tips skillfully consolidated and expertly tended to in very sympathetic fashion. A very nice, bright and pleasing copy of an iconic and cornerstone American literary work. FIRST EDITION IN THE ORIGINAL CLOTH. A HANDSOME AND PLEASING COPY OF THIS GREAT AMERICAN LANDMARK, it is the first novel in which the hero is a boy and the boy is the hero throughout. TOM SAWYER is now thought to be, along with HUCKLEBERRY FINN, one of the great stepping stones to the modern American novel. It, like Whitman’s LEAVES OF GRASS and Melville’s MOBY DICK, typifies and describes the American spirit. It lies at that very special moment in history when America, having challenged its past sets off on the new adventures that will force it into the coming century and the great expansion of its democratic spirit. To this day, it remains a cornerstone of American literature.

        Letters and Social Aims

      1876. First Edition . Signed. EMERSON, Ralph Waldo. Letters and Social Aims. Boston: James R. Osgood, 1876 [i.e. 1875]. Octavo, original terracotta cloth. Housed in a half morocco chemise and full morocco slipcase. $11,000.First edition, first printing, association copy, of the last volume of essays published during Emerson's lifetime, bearing the ownership signature of Emerson's neighbor, Jeanie M. LeBrun, and additionally signed for her by Emerson and dated by him in the year of publication, ""6 Jan 1876.""This was the last volume of essay published during Emerson's lifetime. By the 1870s, Emerson had faded and ""gradually slipped into a serene senility in which his mind finally became a calm blank"" (OCAL). ""A longtime friend, James Elliot Cabot, was enlisted by the family to help put Emerson's literary manuscripts in order and prepare his lectures for delivery and his writings for publication… Cabot and Emerson's daughter Ellen put together a final volume of essays, Letters and Social Aims (1876), some reprinted ('The Comic,' 'Quotation and Originality,' and 'Persian Poetry') and others drawn from Emerson's manuscripts ('Poetry and Imagination,' 'Social Aims,' 'Eloquence,' 'Resources,' 'Progress of Culture,' 'Inspiration,' 'Greatness,' and 'Immortality')… Emerson died quietly in Concord and was buried at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, close to the graves of the Alcotts, Hawthornes, and Thoreaus"" (ANB). First printing, with ""N"" on page 209 and with ""inviolate"" and ""choices"" on page 308 (changed respectively in the second and third printings to ""inviolable"" and ""choice""). Though this work is dated 1876, the first printing took place on December 16, 1875 and was first advertised on Christmas of that year in Publisher's Weekly. Myerson A43.1a. BAL 5272. This copy belonged to and bears the ownership signature of Jean M. LeBrun, a Concord neighbor of the Emersons, as well as the Thoreaus, Alcotts, and Hawthornes. LeBrun's signature is dated Christmas day, just days after publication, suggesting that this book may have been a gift to her—one that she embellished by securing Emerson's signature. LeBrun would later attain her own minor fame for a piece she wrote to the Boston Advertiser in 1883 (later separately published in booklet form) that responded to the 1882 first book-length biography of Thoreau. The biography was written by Frank B. Sanborn, yet another Concord neighbor who worked as a schoolteacher instructing the children of Emerson, Hawthorne, and James. Sanborn also proposed to Emerson's daughter, Edith, who rejected him. In his biography of Thoreau, Sanborn presented an unflattering and ungenerous portrait of Thoreau's mother. Jean LeBrun, in her piece for the Advertiser undertook to defend both Thoreau and his mother posthumously.Interior with only a couple faint stains, light rubbing to extremities of binding. A near-fine copy.

It is to be called Two Rivulets—(i.e. two flowing chains of prose and verse, emanating the real and ideal)… it will embody much that I had previously written & that you know, but about one-third, as I guess, that is fresh” (Myerson, 196). This is the second printing, one of only 650 copies, preceded by a first printing of only 100 copies. The albumen portrait frontispiece in this copy is laid in (rather than mounted); it is torn off at the bottom and unsigned. All copies located by Myerson have a signed photograph. Myerson A9.1.b. This copy belonged to Gertrude Traubel, daughter of Whitman’s close friend and literary executor, Horace Traubel, inscribed to her by her father’s friend Will Innes.Text slightly toned, one leaf dog-eared in the binding process, minor rubbing to original calf. A very good copy.

        Report of the Exploring Expedition... in 1859

      1876. First Edition . MACOMB, John N. and NEWBERRY, John S. Report of the Exploring Expedition From Santa Fé, New Mexico, To the Junction of the Grand and Green Rivers of the Great Colorado of the West in 1859. Washington: Government Printing Office, 1876. Quarto, contemporary three-quarter navy morocco, raised bands, marbled endpapers and edges. $6500.First edition of the account of Macomb and Newberry’s expedition from New Mexico to Colorado and the Grand Canyon, with 22 full page plates, including eleven chromolithographed plates, eight lithographed plates of fossils and three lithographed plates of landscapes, along with “one of the most beautiful maps ever published by the Army” (Wheat), association copy of Vannoy Hartrog Manning, a Confederate Civil War officer in the Civil War who later served as Mississippi’s Representative to the U.S. Congress (1877-83).“In June 1859 Capt. John N. Macomb, chief topographical officer in New Mexico, was ordered to lead an expedition northward along the Old Spanish Trail in search of the desired military road into Utah. Twenty thousand dollars was appropriated for the expedition, and Macomb was authorized to take along John Strong Newberry… Macomb [and] Newberry… made their way… across the tortured landscape toward the junction of the Green and Grand rivers. At one point their view swept across a wide expanse of the country and Newberry wrote that it was ‘everywhere deeply cut by a tangled maze of canyons, and thickly set with towers, castles, and spires of the most varied and striking forms; the most wonderful monuments of erosion, which our eyes, already experienced in objects of this kind, had ever beheld” (Goetzmann, 394-7). Macomb’s geographical report was initially issued without Newberry’s geological report (because Newberry was still working for the Sanitary Commission in the west), but publication was delayed for 15 years owning to the Civil War, allowing time for Newberry’s contribution to be included. The plates depict the various canyons and rivers the expedition encountered, as well as eight geological plates. The folding map, measuring 30 by 36 inches, “is one of the most beautiful… ever published by the army. Like Ives’ maps it was done by ‘Baron’ F.W. Egloffstein… Again he speaks of the ‘Big Cañon’ of the Colorado River, thus making it clear that the term Grand Cañon had not yet emerged… This is a landmark map” (Wheat IV, 142-3). Howes M179. Wagner-Camp 379b. Graff 2647. Farquhar 23. This volume was specially bound for Vannoy Hartrog Manning, who was a Representative for Mississippi in the 45th, 46th and 47th U.S. Congresses (1877-83) after serving the Confederacy in the Civil War as Colonel of the 3rd Arkansas Infantry and 2nd Arkansas Battalion. With gilt-lettered “Van. H. Manning” printed to the spine end.Text and plates very fresh and clean, several expertly repaired small closed tears to gutter edge of folding map, slight edge-wear, faint rubbing to boards. A scarce near-fine copy with a memorable provenance.

      Guildford, Surrey, Corporation of Cork 1876 - 18.5 cm x 22.5 cm. XXX, 1191 pages. Original hardcover. Good condition with some clear signs of wear and tear on external cover and page edges, some stains on page edges and some marks on pages inside. Includes record of Mayors and Sheriffs of Cork from 1690 to 1734 / A charter to incorporate the Guild of Wholesale Merchants / An account of how the Earl of Inchiquin was presented with his freedom / The appointment of Sir James Jeffryes as Governor of Cork / Proposal for Benj Pike to prove his right to the fishery of the river. "Richard Caulfield's The Council Book of the Corporation of Cork from 1609 to 1643 and from 1690 to 1800 are proceedings of the municipal authorities of Cork as they took place. Caulfield's work is an attempt to provide a faithful record of history rather than a romantic version. He identified two methods of writing history. The first is to present the facts as they are and leave it to the reader to form his own impressions. The second is to present what the impressions have made on the writer's mind and present them to the reader. Caulfield intended to marry both methods together by presenting a series of samples and extracts to give a truer picture of the times. He used sources in the Library of the British Museum , the Bodlein library, Oxford , the Treasury of the Corporation of Cork and other sources. Richard Caulfield (1823-1887) was secretary, librarian and custodian of the Royal Cork Institution and librarian for Queen's College Cork. It is said of him that on several occasion he was chosen to referee the various sides in significant historical and theological disputes. He was acquainted with and respected by the members of the clergy, Cork city dignitaries, lecturers, professors and the student body of Queen's College who attended his funeral when he died at the age of 64."
