'About 1797 he went to the Porte as private secretary to John Spencer Smith, British ambassador there. On 9 April 1799 he was commissioned by patent as pro-consul at Aleppo, and agent ad interim for the Levant and the East India companies.

DARWIN, Charles
London: John Murray, 1876. With 109 tables and 1 diagram; errata slip tipped in. Original green cloth; some very minor soiling, otherwise a very good copy with the ownership inscription of Charles Crompton, possibly the English barrister and Member of Parliament for Leek in Stafordshire and husband of Florence Elizabeth Gaskell (daughter of the novelist Elizabeth Gaskell). First edition, first issue (1500 copies), of Darwin's survey of the mechanism favoring cross-fertilization. This work was based on twelve years of experimentation with 57 species and led to the discovery and demonstration of the concept of hybrid vigor, or "heterosis." Considered by Darwin to be complement to his work on fertlization of orchids, this demonstration of the advantages of cross-fertilization explains why sexual reproduction increases heritable variation; the work also explains the basis for the survival value granted by the existence of different sexes in species. The author concludes that this adaptation is an old one, inherited by plants and animals before they diverged from one another. Freeman, 1249.

Baz, Gustavo and E. L. Gallo
Mexico City: Gallo & Co. Editors, 1876. First English language edition. Folio (15 x 11 in/ 38 x 28 cm), pp 211, and 32 sepia lithographed plates, color lithographed title page, and folding map. All of the lithograph plates in this copy have been hand-colored, except for the 2 plates depicting the engineers and "projectors" involved in the project. The book was commissioned to celebrate the completion of the Vera Cruz - Mexico City railroad line. Palau (25913/25914) does not specify the number of plates that should be present, but from auction records it is clear that this copy is complete in all respects: the Spanish-language edition was published in 1874, with the same number of plates and the map. The striking lithographs were executed by Hesiquio Iriarte, arguably the finest lithographer of Mexico. Bound in the original brown blind-stamped cloth, with gilt title material and the original ornate spine, raised bands, gilt fleurons, title material. The plates are in fine condition, as is the text. The cleanness of the text and plates is unusual. Quite nice copy of a book that, when it does show up, is often incomplete or in poor condition. Images gladly sent on request.

Young, Allen
William Clowes and Sons, London. viii,90pp., plus twelve mounted photographs, folding map. Original blue cloth, stamp in black, gilt lettered. Light wear to cloth, front hinge a bit loose. Contemporary gift inscription on titlepage, 20th-century bookplate on front pastedown. Light tanning, occasional foxing to text; photos quite clean. A very good copy. A presentation copy of the first edition of this narrative that recounts Young's 1875 voyage to the Arctic Seas, with extracts from his journal. The privately funded voyage of the Pandora strove to navigate the Northwest Passage with hopes to gain a better understanding of the fate of the Franklin expedition. Although the Pandora was unable to complete its voyage, due to extreme ice in Peel Sound, Young was able to make a stop at the kryolite mine in Ivitut, Greenland, which he describes in great detail. Young also completed an investigation of Beechey Island, where he discovered the shelter erected by McClintock and the cairn set up by Sir John Ross during their own searches for Franklin. The twelve photographs included are some of the earliest taken of the region, and include the graves of Franklin's expedition on Beechey Island and views at Godhavn, among others. A rare, personal account of Young's expedition which earned him the Arctic Medal in 1876. Printed for private distribution, rare in the market, with Young's gift inscription on the titlepage to a "Fred Irving." ARCTIC BIBLIOGRAPHY 19758. [Attributes: First Edition]

The American Publishing Co, 1876. First Edition, BAL's early state "A" with illustration on verso of half-title and xvi foliated, with mis-paginations as called for. 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.

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 11 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. Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony's historic partnership began almost two decades prior to the Declaration, upon Stanton's urging that Anthony focus her activist efforts on women's property and citizenship rights. Together, they founded the National Woman Suffrage Association [NWSA], the most influential coalition promoting women's equality after the Civil War. Operating under the motto "Men, Their Rights and Nothing More - Women, Their Rights and Nothing Less," the NWSA spearheaded protests, petitions, and lobbying efforts to gain equal citizenship for … [Click Below for Full Description]

1876. 8vo. Four pages, approximately 500 words. In part: "You must think I am a very shabby fellow & to tell you the truth I think I am too ... I want to hear from you just how the thing looks and what next I can do for you. I find I rather look for your letters and I know you'll pity a poor old bachelor when it is so little trouble and let me hear again soon." Cleveland had apparently not kept a promise to help with a benefit to raise funds for the enlargement of a Buffalo cemetery and was attempting to make amends here.

Halblederband der Zeit (neues Rückenschild, neue Vorsätze), ein sauberes, schönes Exemplar. Eines der seltensten und schönsten Bücher zu Völkerkunde Afrikas! ? Der deutsche Naturforscher Robert Hartmann (1831-1893) reiste mit Barnim nach Nordostafrika und hat vor allem auf den Gebieten der Völkerkunde viele Informationen gesammelt. Hartmann war ein Freund von Heinrich Barth und dessen positiver Beurteilung der Afrikaner. Seine Monographie über die Völker Schwarzafrikas erlebte nur einen Band. Zu groß waren die Angriffe rassistischer Kollegen, sowie der Anhängerschaft der Darwin schen Evolitionstheorie. Sp blieb dieser erste Band das Hauptwerk von Hartmanns ethnologischer Arbeit.

Ministero dei Lavori Pubblici
Lazio. Carta corografica in sette fogli, applicata su tela a stacchi, conservata nella propria cartelletta originale. Il rilievo, in scala di 1 a 150000, si riferisce alla situazione riscontrata dal Ministero dei Lavori Pubblici - Direzione Generale dei Ponti e Strade al 31 dicembre del 1876. Il lavoro venne svolto per conoscere lo stato di attuazione della legge 30 agosto del 1868, che prevedeva la costruzione di un notevole numero di strade al fine di collegare tutti i territori del Regno d'Italia. Avvincente cartografia del Compartimento di Roma di cui fornisce una dettagliata rappresentazione del sistema viario e confinale. Nella legenda vengono segnalati i limiti di Provincia, di Circondario e di Comune. Per quanto riguarda le strade ferrate sono segnalate sia quelle in esercizio, quelle in costruzione e quelle da costruire aventi concessione. Lo stesso discorso vale per le varie tipologie di strade: Nazionali, Provinciali sino alle Comunali Obbligatorie. Queste ultime rappresentano forse il corpus più interessante poiché sono segnalate le strade da costruire di cui si hanno i progetti, quelle i cui progetti sono in corso di compilazione e quelle di cui mancano i progetti. Si trovano segnalati anche il Limite di Provincia, di Circondario e quello di Comune. Interessante testimonianza inerente la gestione ed organizzazione territoriale del nostro paese.

Colonel (Brevet Brigadier General) Delancy Floyd-Jones
Various European locations, 1876. Album. Good to Very Good. This "8 x 11" album contains twenty-nine used pages filled with calling cards, autographs, photographs, programs, a menu, and other ephemera. Everything is glued to the album pages. The contents are in nice shape. It appears that four leaves have been removed. The album's spine covering has perished. There is an old bookseller's description affixed inside the front cover describing its contents and titled, "The Colonel Eats Abroad" that notes the album also contained menus of steamships and hotels collected during a tour of Europe. Unfortunately all but one of the menus has been removed, the others were probably attached to the four missing leaves. Delancy Floyd-Jones was a well-regarded and influential career officer in the U. S. Army. After graduating from West Point in 1846, he served in the Mexican War, the Yakima War, and the Civil War. Twice he was recognized for gallantry and meritorious conduct in battle, first at Molino del Rey and again a Gettysburg. Following the Civil War, he command two different regiments and served at a number of posts and stations throughout the South and West. At the time he assembled this scrapbook he was the Commander of the 3rd Infantry Regiment and apparently on leave touring Europe. Scrapbook highlights include: * 115 calling cards (a few duplicated with many signed or with personal notes) from people he encountered including * John Meredith Read, a diplomat, author, founder of the Wide-Awakes (a paramilitary organization that supported Abraham Lincoln in the 1860 … [Click Below for Full Description]

[New Hampshire, 1876. Broadside, 24 x 18 3/4 inches. Lightly creased, else very good. Archivally matted. Daniel Marcy (1809-93) was a New Hampshire sea captain and Congressman, first elected in 1863. He ran for governor in 1874, and this broadside attacks both his voting record and his integrity, accusing him of Confederate sympathies during the Civil War, a ploy known as "waving the bloody shirt," in effect accusing the opponent of murdering the sons of voters. The large broadside, which reads at the bottom, "Post this up in a conspicuous place," details Marcy's votes in Congress, which include tabling a resolution to abolish slavery; voting against punishing guerillas; voting against the appeal of the Fugitive Slave Law, and later against amending the Constitution to abolish slavery. It also includes the text of the only speech he made in Congress, which the author has labeled "Rebel Speech." Marcy was defeated by a narrow margin in the election, losing to the Republican, Person C. Cheney. A rare and interesting piece. OCLC records only one similar item at the New Hampshire Historical Society.

Contemporary gift inscription on titlepage, 20th-century bookplate on front pastedown. Light tanning, occasional foxing to text; photos quite clean. A very good copy. A presentation copy of the first edition of this narrative that recounts Young's 1875 voyage to the Arctic Seas, with extracts from his journal. The privately funded voyage of the Pandora strove to navigate the Northwest Passage with hopes to gain a better understanding of the fate of the Franklin expedition. Although the Pandora was unable to complete its voyage, due to extreme ice in Peel Sound, Young was able to make a stop at the kryolite mine in Ivitut, Greenland, which he describes in great detail. Young also completed an investigation of Beechey Island, where he discovered the shelter erected by McClintock and the cairn set up by Sir John Ross during their own searches for Franklin. The twelve photographs included are some of the earliest taken of the region, and include the graves of Franklin's expedition on Beechey Island and views at Godhavn, among others. A rare, personal account of Young's expedition which earned him the Arctic Medal in 1876.
