CAPTAIN CHARLES H. BACON
MIDDLETOWN CONNECTICUT HARTFORD, 1876. On offer is a unique record of a sailing captain's journey along the eastern seaboard of the United States. The leather-bound volume measures 5.75 inches by 3.5 inches and contains 120 pages. It is 100% complete. The notes are written in pencil but can still be read after all these years. The cover, binding and pages are all in good condition. Charles H. Bacon was born in 1815 in Middletown, Connecticut, USA. He passed away in 1902 at the age of 86. His obituary in the Hartford Courant, dated December 17, 1902 stated: "...Captain Bacon was one of the best known sea captains in this vicinity. When a young man he shipped as mate on the frigate Isabella and was engaged in the West Indian trade for many years. When that trade died out some fifty years ago he took command of a schooner engaged in the coastine trade, and made hundreds of trips from the Portland quarries to New York, Philadelphia and other ports. A few years ago he gave up his seafaring life." In 1876, he was captain of a sailing vessel plying the waters of the eastern seaboard, carrying cargo to various ports. The name and size of his ship, a schooner (Mar 13, 1877) are not mentioned. His journal begins Aug 4th, 1876 after loading at Middletown: "Sailed from Middletown to Haddam Neck." [Aug 6]; "Sailed from Haddam Neck to East Haddam to Saybrook. ... sailed from Saybrook to off Falkner's Island." [Aug 7]; "Sailed from Old Field to Rikers Island" [Aug 9]. His journal continues with 1 and 2 line entries. For the most part, he is hauling stone from the Middletown area to New Y … [Click Below for Full Description]

Measuring 3 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches, the leather bound diary contains about 400 pages and is about 90% complete. The handwriting is legible and the book is in good condition. The writer is unknown. She is a teacher, living away from home. Context clues suggest she lives and works in the area immediately west of Philadelphia, PA., quite likely Collegeville, PA. [ref.: Sept 7]. The students, few as they are, live at the school. Much of her entries make a brief comment on what is happening at her school and the letters she writes or receives. "Took the young ladies to the creek to skate before school. They enjoyed it so much they insisted on going again after dinner. We went down, Miss C accompanying us. Feel somewhat the worse for our efforts at skating" [Jan 15]; "... Was surprised and delighted to receive a lovely letter from my friend Sally to whom I had not written for nearly two years. Sent me a lovely tieshe is a dear good girl. Received a letter also from [ ]." [Jan 19]. Like many small private schools, enrolment was always a challenge: "Rained and I was sorry Mary had to go home but there seemed no alternative. Had a note from her saying she was very wet when she reached home. We had several new day scholars added to our slender number" [April 3]. On May 17th, she refers to an opportunity to write a Teacher's Examination which suggests that she is not yet licensed.

MAXWELL, James Clerk.
Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, London. First edition, rare on the market in this condition, of Maxwell's textbook on dynamics, "a masterpiece of natural philosophy, notable especially for introducing into physics the term relativity in a passage that combines strenuous scientific insight with a mystical awareness [It] had a strong influence on [Henri] Poincaré" (Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy, p. 209). "More light is thrown on Maxwell’s own opinions about the problem of relative and absolute motion and the connection between dynamics and other branches of physics by the delightful monograph Matter and Motion, published in 1876" (DSB). This book also contains, within a discussion of causality, a foreshadowing of modern ideas about chaos theory. Matter and Motion has sometimes been represented in the past as a largely non-mathematical summary of Newtonian dynamics but it is now recognized that it contains an incisive analysis of concepts such as space, time and acceleration that is a clear precursor of Einstein’s work that lead to the special theory of relativity. Article 18, ‘Absolute Space,’ includes the statement: "All our knowledge, both of time and place, is essentially relative." Maxwell also emphasizes from the beginning of the work the notion of ‘configuration’ of a set of points, which he defines as "the assemblage of relative positions" this avoids the arbitrary choice of an ‘origin’ or ‘axes’ which would be needed to specify the Cartesian coordinates of the points. In art. 29 he represents such a configuration by a set of bright dots on a black fi … [Click Below for Full Description]

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, blue cloth covered slipcase included to protect the volume. [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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

BURTON, Richard Francis.
London: Printed by George E. Eyre and William Spottiswoode, published at the Great Seal Patent Office, 1876. Folio. Sewn blue wrappers, enclosing folded bifolium with text on first leaf. Housed in a custom red cloth solander box, black morocco label to spine lettered in gilt. Margins with light creases and short tears, else a very good copy. First edition of the published patent for Richard Burton's carbine pistol, patented on 1 September 1875. Burton wrote to a correspondent that he believed his carbine pistol will "presently surpass the popular but uncertain and dangerous revolver, whilst by a tolerably strong wrist it can be used like a pistol" (Isabel Burton, Life of Richard Burton, vol. I). Based on his military experience, Burton designed a gun that could be fired from horseback without using the shoulder. The work is highly scarce, with OCLC only listing the Huntington copy, with Copac adding a copy in the Royal Asiatic Society. Only one auction record is known, in 2004. Penzer p. 229 ("one of these pistols can still be seen among the relics at the Central Library, Camberwell"). [Attributes: First Edition]

MARGARET C. WEBSTER
ABBOT ACADEMY, ANDOVER, MASSACHUSETTS, MA: (1876). 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. On offer is the 1876 original handwritten journal and notebook of Margaret C. Webster, a student at the Abbot Academy, notable as one of the first secondary schools for educating young women in New England. This is an exceptional document of early women's education in America. It details the things women were learning, how they learned them, and a bit into the personal life of one of the few women being educated in the country. The book seems to have served two purposes for Ms. Webster. First, the majority of the book is a school composition/notebook. Secondly, at the end of the book, there is a diary for writing down personal experiences. Margaret seems to have been born in 1858, making her around 18 at the time of this journal. The majority of the Margaret C. Webster book is devoted to school related work (65 pages). This includes: Poetry - Margaret has written in her journal poems by Thackeray, Proctor, Homer and some quotations by Tennyson. There is also the poem "Annie and Willies Prayer" by Sophia Snow, which is a Christmas poem similar to the "The Night Before Christmas.; Original essays - There is an essay by Margaret titled "World Without Imagination."; Botany notes which include a list of 100 plants and flowers with their common name as well as their genus and specie; Notes/Discussions/Compositions on Famous Personages and Subjects - These include Tennyson, Wordsworth, Aristotle, Byron, Pope, Chaucer, and more; A Student Study Schedule- This contains Margaret's schedule of morning study … [Click Below for Full Description]

Anthony, Susan B., Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, et al.
[Philadelphia]: [National Woman Suffrage Association], 1876. First edition. 4 pages. 11 x 8.5". Chipping at edges, small separations at folds. Signed in type by women's rights trailblazers Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Belva Lockwood and twenty additional suffrage leaders. In near fine condition. The Declaration exists in two nearly identical forms, printed under variant titles that are exceptionally rare in either form. This version, bearing the now famed title Declaration of Rights of Women of the United States is the only known copy to have come onto the public market according to auction records, with the remaining 7 examples held at research institutions. The only known surviving copy of the variant Declaration and Protest of the Women of the United States is held at the Library of Congress. While priority between the titles is unknown, the Library of Congress copy's omission of the second postscript and its four additional printed signatures suggest that it is the later of the two.

MARGARET C. WEBSTER
ABBOT ACADEMY, ANDOVER, MASSACHUSETTS, MA: (1876). 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. On offer is the 1876 original handwritten journal and notebook of Margaret C. Webster, a student at the Abbot Academy, notable as one of the first secondary schools for educating young women in New England. This is an exceptional document of early women's education in America. It details the things women were learning, how they learned them, and a bit into the personal life of one of the few women being educated in the country. The book seems to have served two purposes for Ms. Webster. First, the majority of the book is a school composition/notebook. Secondly, at the end of the book, there is a diary for writing down personal experiences. Margaret seems to have been born in 1858, making her around 18 at the time of this journal. The majority of the Margaret C. Webster book is devoted to school related work (65 pages). This includes: Poetry - Margaret has written in her journal poems by Thackeray, Proctor, Homer and some quotations by Tennyson. There is also the poem "Annie and Willies Prayer" by Sophia Snow, which is a Christmas poem similar to the "The Night Before Christmas.; Original essays - There is an essay by Margaret titled "World Without Imagination."; Botany notes which include a list of 100 plants and flowers with their common name as well as their genus and specie; Notes/Discussions/Compositions on Famous Personages and Subjects - These include Tennyson, Wordsworth, Aristotle, Byron, Pope, Chaucer, and more; A Student Study Schedule- This contains Margaret's schedule of morning study … [Click Below for Full Description]

Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Belva Lockwood and twenty additional suffrage leaders. In near fine condition. The Declaration exists in two nearly identical forms, printed under variant titles that are exceptionally rare in either form. This version, bearing the now famed title Declaration of Rights of Women of the United States is the only known copy to have come onto the public market according to auction records, with the remaining 7 examples held at research institutions. The only known surviving copy of the variant Declaration and Protest of the Women of the United States is held at the Library of Congress. While priority between the titles is unknown, the Library of Congress copy's omission of the second postscript and its four additional printed signatures suggest that it is the later of the two.

Efforts had been made since 1862 to secure the adoption of a constitution. Bancroft writes: "The constitution-makers of Colorado were skilled artificers. It was a noble document, with those errors only which the course of events develops. An attempt was made for universal suffrage by introducing a clause making it obligatory upon the first legislature to pass a law conferring the franchise upon women, which was, however to be submitted to the vote of the male citizens at the first election thereafter"--Bancroft, p. 433.

Rubbing to leather, paper over front hinge cracked (but hinge still sound), cords just visible at a few spots in the binding, but overall quite sound and clean. This copy has the following issue points: the advertising leaf is present at the end; there is a blank leaf between "As a Strong Bird" and "Memoranda; it does not have the frontis photograph of Whitman, but does have the tipped in page to which that portrait should have been mounted. The printed caption on that page is three lines, reading "Photo'd from life, Sept., '72, Brooklym, N.Y. by G.F.E. Pearsall, Fulton St. (Printed by C. F. Spieler, Phila.)." Inscribed on the front free endpaper: "This book was in Walt Whitman's 'den' when he died. Much of the matter in it was set up by his own hands. Known as the 'Centennial Edition." Presented to George Gose with sincere regard of Thomas B. Harned[,] one of the authors literary executors. Nov. 1 1901." Harned (1851-1921) was a close friend of Whitman, and one of his three literary executors. We have not found much information about George Gose, but do know he corresponded with Whitman's biographer, Horace Traubel.

Large 4to and folio (31 x 24 cm). 999 pp. [(i), 779; viii, 211]; 412 plates by Keulemans and others. Uniform dark blue cloth over marbled boards. Spines with two burgundy morocco labels with gilt titles.l The complete bird part of the magnum opus of father and son Alfred (1836-1921) and Guillaume (1873-1957) Grandidier on the natural history, and history, of Madagascar. The whole work was published over a period of more than 80 years, and written by many specialists in diverse fields of zoology and botany, such as Vaillant (herpetology), and Mabille (butterflies), etc., sometimes in collaboration with the Grandidiers. Some parts were never completed, or announced but not published; others were reprinted, with or without re-editing. A complete collation of all the parts published, and their variants, is still wanting. This set comprises the bird section, which is complete and includes the much later published supplement. Volume numbering (and, hence, spine numbering) is somewhat confusing. A collation is as follows: Volume XII. Histoire naturelle des oiseaux. Tome I. Texte (1879). pp. [i], [1]-779; Volume XIII. Tome II. Atlas I. [(1876)-1879] 139 plates. According to Nissen, ZBI "Die ersten 40 Taf. von Faguet, Gélibert, Huet, Terrier wurden durch neue von Keulemans ersetzt" In this copy, the non-osteological plates are all by Keulemans, except 7 and 71-72 (by Huët & Faguet), 41 and 41a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lose im Original goldgepresstem Einbandkasten (Gebrauchsspuren, berieben) mit reicher Deckelverzierung und montierter Fotografie. Text ein wenig stockfleckig, Tafeln ein wenig gebräunt und auf unterschiedlichen Trägerkartons. - Der sehr dekorative Original-Kasten wurde wahrscheinlich in geringer Auflage als „Luxusausgabe" hergestellt (ein Vergleich mit 2 anderen Exemplaren - eines in der Woldan-Sammlung in Wien, bestätigt diese Annahme). Dieses photographische Album war für den Handel bestimmt und eine Ergänzung (Petermann 1877,S.108) der 2 Alben, die nur für die Mitglieder produziert wurden (Siehe nächste Nummer). Bereits 1877 wurde dieses Album für seine tadellosen Photos, die unter schwierigsten klimatischen Bedingungen aufgenommen wurden, gelobt (Ausland, Jg.50,1877; Petermann 1877, S.107). Dargestellt sind die Expeditionsstationen, Landschaften, Botanik, Zoologie und zahlreiche ethnologische Abbildungen, wie Portraits und charakteristische Gruppen von Bewohner der Loango-Küste. Ein Photo zeigt eine der ersten Aufnahmen eines lebenden Gorillas, den Falkenstein nach Europa brachte. Hier auf dem Foto schläft das Gorilla-Baby, das Falkenstein von einem Händler als Geschenk überreicht und dann gepflegt wurde. Der Gorilla M´pungo wurde 1876 die Attraktion im Berliner Zoo Unter den Linden. Er war erst der zweite lebende Gorilla in Europa (1855 gab es einen in England).

TWAIN, Mark
The American Publishing Co, 1876. FIRST EDITION Wood-engraved frontispiece and half title printed on separate leaves, and numerous wood engravings by True Williams and others. Lovely full blue morocco with gilt borders, spine in compartments decorated in gilt; an excellent copy. First printing, first issue, with all issue points noted. Featuring one of the best-loved characters in American fiction, we join Tom with his well-known incidents of the whitewashed fence, his love affair with Becky Thatcher, and the trial of Injun Joe, all evocative of life in the Mississippi River towns in which Twain spent his youth. A somber undercurrent is threaded through the high humor and brazen nostalgia of the story, which highlights the dichotomy of the innocence of childhood and the inequities of the realities of adulthood in this Midwestern town: base emotions and fallacies, murder and retribution, starvation and slavery. The adventures of Tom Sawyer was continually adapted for film and television. Lauded as the "Father of American Literature," Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), better known by his most-used pen name, Mark Twain, is a hallmark of classic American literature. Known for his famous work, The adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel, The adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Twain is known for his radical civil rights views and often-censored subject matter. His works run the gamut from novels, to collections of letters, to humorous stories about nineteenth century steamboat culture. Also included is a "FIRST DAY OF ISSUE STAMP AND ENVELOPE, Hannibal, MO., Feb. 13, 1940, 9-am. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Susan B. Anthony
“Now it is left for the present and future generations to carry forward the work to final success. How soon it will be an accomplished fact that woman will stand the peer of man - socially, morally, industrially and politically - remains for the future to tell.” She inscribes a set of her “History of Woman Suffrage” to her cousin, describing the 4 stages of the women’s suffrage movement as 1. “Early…struggles for liberty”; 2. The “herculean efforts” that were made to make the movement national; 3. The “valiant efforts to get the right of women to vote”; and 4. The work that remains to be done. Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton initiated the project of writing a history of the women's suffrage movement in 1876. The result, the “History of Woman Suffrage”, was a landmark work that serves as a moving testament to what intelligent, courageous, and committed individuals can accomplish when they join together to accomplish a great goal. Producing this history, which was ultimately a four volume set of books, dominated Anthony’s life for much of the next decade. It was written and published during the heat of battle, and the preface notes that some women’s rights activists felt it was too soon to publish the history of a movement that was still working to attain its objective. But Anthony and Stanton were determined to capture the words and insights of their contemporaries in the movement while they were still living. Today the work is an extraordinary primary resource. In the introduction the authors wrote of their intentions: "We hop … [Click Below for Full Description]
