Whitman, Walt
1876. WALT WHITMAN Leaves of Grass SIGNED & INSCRIBED CENTENNIAL EDITION Published by Whitman, 1876. The signed "author's edition," signed as called for by the author on the title page, but also additionally inscribed and dated July 27, 1876, by the author on the front free endpaper. Also bears the recipient's ownership signature on the front free endpaper, Ms. K. Hillard. This author's edition was published by Whitman himself as a "centennial edition," one on only 600 copies printed, and constituted the fifth edition, third printing, second issue of Leaves of Grass. Book has later leather spine. Laid in is a signed letter to Ms. Hillard, dated March 12, 1876. Int he letter Whitman speaks about mutual friends and animated get togethers, and also discusses how expensive it was to self-publish the centennial books ("how absurdly high the price."). The letter is separated at the center fold, and a small corner missing, affecting part of the signature. Housed in a handsome clamshell case.

MOYR SMITH, John.
c.1876: 1876. Six tiles from 12 designed for Minton, inspired by Alfred, Lord Tennyson's 'Idylls of the King'. Designed by Moyr Smith and first produced in 1876. Here unusually in blue and white. A fine group in remarkably good condition and framed for display in the 1960s by the Marshall Field department store in Chicago. Tennyson's The Idylls of the King poems are all about the legends of King Arthur so are a perfect subject matter for this most Victorian of designers. They are some of the best and were among the more popular of Moyr Smith's pictorial series of tiles for Minton. A stunning display. The tiles in this set are Vivien, Excalibur, Elaine, Isolt, Enid & Pelleas. .

Photographs.
1876. Oblong folio.16 leaves with albumen photographic prints measuring 14 x 10 1/2 inches mounted on recto, captions in letterpress. The Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition of 1876 was the first World's Fair. It was held from May to November, 1876, and attracted nearly 10 million visitors. One of the many buildings specially constructed for the exhibition was devoted exclusively to photography. Thus the photographic "title page" of this album is labeled "Centennial International Photographic Exhibition," with credit given to famed photographer William Notman as president of the exhibition committee. The subject of this particular album is Gloucester, Mass. The "title page" image is of Gloucester's fisheries exhibit at the fair, and the fifteen images in the album are scenes of the Gloucester waterfront, Gloucester cityscapes, and specific buildings in the city. All are identified in letterpress as to location, with credit for each of the images given to Gloucester photographer William A. Elwell. Many photographic images were displayed in the exhibition curated by Notman. An entry in Worldcat lists 514 stereograph images of the Centennial Exhibition, assembled by William Notman and Edward L Wilson. Worldcat also lists albums of photographs for states such as Florida and Nebraska, but none of the images are of this scale, and none are specific to a single city. No holdings in Worldcat. I've been told by a curator that a similar title exists in the library of the Cape Ann Museum, but I have not seen it. This is a rare and spectacular photographic record of Gloucester at the he … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dores (signature on bookplate, dated 1949); British Astronomical Association (stamp on title and endpaper). ---- Ashworth, The face of the moon, Linda Hall 21 - FIRST EDITION. Neville, who wrote under the name Neison, published the first observer's guide to the moon written in English, and it is still one of the best. It contains a wealth of detail on more than 500 named features, as well as a map in 22 sections, to the scale of 24" to the moon's diameter. The map is not entirely original, being based on that of Beer and Mädler, but it is much easier to use than the original. In addition to the map, there are several enlarged drawings of craters of special interest, such as Gassendi and Maginus, and five chromolithographs to show the effect of changing illumination on the lunar landscape (Ashworth). - Visit our website to see more images!

Baskin, Forster & Co., Chicago, 1876. Published to coincide with the Centennial this ia a massive 17 3/4 x 14 3/4 x 1 3/4" thick atlas of 462 pp. This copy has been recased with new spine and end papers. What makes this atlas special is the condition of its contents. I have handled a lot of atlases in the past 30+ years and the interior is as nice or nicer than any from this era I have handled. There is occasional finger soil to the margins and the last several leaves [text only] have a crease. Otherwise the pages are so bright and clean as to stand out in comparison. My veteran book binder was quite impressed with the condition of the maps. The original covers are chipped but still quite presentable. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Grant, Ulysses S
1876. Autograph letter signed by and entirely in the hand of Ulysses S. Grant as President. Addressed to the Attorney General of the United States Edwards Pierrepont the letter reads, "Elizabeth, N.J. Sept. 2nd 1876 Dear Judge, While in Utica Judge Hunt spoke to me of the importance of appointing a member to Judge Woodruff at as early as a day as practicable on account of the great amount of business before the court. I do not know of any lawyer in the circuit to whom to tender the position when it should be Senator Edmunds and he I should dislike to see leave the Senate. But you are well acquainted with the Bar in that circuit and its wants, and can no doubt suggest the right man for the place. If you will send me a commission therefore to St. Louis so as to reach me there between the 24th and 28th either filled up of the name blank, with suggestions as to the best man I will sign and return it. Very truly your humble servant U.S. Grant." Grant appointed Pierrepont Attorney General of the United States on April 26, 1875. When he assumed the office, Pierrepont immediately implemented overdue reform in the South's U.S. Marshal and U.S. Attorney departments including extensive investigations into the conduct of the U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals, exposing fraud and corruption. Double matted and framed with a carte de visite of Grant. In fine condition. The entire piece measures 21.75 inches by 15.75 inches.

TWAIN, MARK
Hartford: American Publishing, 1876. FIRST AMERICAN EDITION, FIRST PRINTING (with half-title and frontispiece on different leaves as required). This is one of only 200 copies in the original publisher's deluxe morocco binding, sold at a premium by subscription.Twain's first novel written without a co-author, Tom Sawyer "proved to be one of the most durable works in American literature. By the time of Twain's death, it was his top-selling book. It had been in print continuously since 1876, and has outsold all other Mark Twain works" (Rasmussen)."Tom Sawyer was the first printed story of a boy in which the hero was recognizable as a boy throughout the whole narrative ... until Tom Sawyer was written, nearly all the boys of fiction were adults with a lisp, or saintly infants, or mischievous eccentrics ... in the work of Dickens there were hints of boys that were boys; but Tom was the first full blown boy in all fiction ... the book is a landmark" (Booth Tarkington).This novel of a boy growing up along the Mississippi River is set in a town called St. Petersburg, inspired by Samuel Clemens's hometown of Hannibal, Missouri. The author may have been named Tom after a San Francisco fireman whom he met in June 1863. The real Tom Sawyer was a local hero, famous for rescuing ninety passengers after a shipwreck in 1853. The two were friendly during the author's years in California, often drinking and gambling together. Twain referred to the real Tom Sawyer in Roughing It, but in later years he claimed that he himself was the model for Tom and that "'Sawyer' was not the real name ... o … [Click Below for Full Description]

It had been in print continuously since 1876, and has outsold all other Mark Twain works (Rasmussen). Tom Sawyer was the first printed story of a boy in which the hero was recognizable as a boy throughout the whole narrative until Tom Sawyer was written, nearly all the boys of fiction were adults with a lisp, or saintly infants, or mischievous eccentrics in the work of Dickens there were hints of boys that were boys; but Tom was the first full blown boy in all fiction the book is a landmark (Booth Tarkington). This novel of a boy growing up along the Mississippi River is set in a town called St. Petersburg, inspired by Samuel Clemens s hometown of Hannibal, Missouri. The author may have been named Tom after a San Francisco fireman whom he met in June 1863. The real Tom Sawyer was a local hero, famous for rescuing ninety passengers after a shipwreck in 1853. The two were friendly during the author s years in California, often drinking and gambling together. Twain referred to the real Tom Sawyer in Roughing It, but in later years he claimed that he himself was the model for Tom and that Sawyer was not the real name of any person I ever … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wagner, Richard, Komponist (1813-1883)
O. O, wohl, 1876. 138:101 mm (Portrait) auf etwas größerem Untersatzkarton. Die auf der Verso-Seite des Untersatzkartons aus dem Atelier des k. k. Hofphotographen Fritz Luckhardt mit sepiafarbener Tinte geschriebene Widmung ist gerichtet an Carl Brandt: "Lieber Brandt | wenn wir erst zum | letzten Brand | gekommen sein werden, | wollen wir Lachnerin | einen Hahn | schlachten | Dieses gelobend bin ich | Ihr | dankbarer Richard Wagner". - Carl Brandt war in den Jahren 1876 und 1882 Bühnenmeister der Bayreuther Festspiele und ein enger Mitarbeiter Wagners (Kaiser, s. u.). Wagners Widmung ist zwar undatiert, dürfte aber aus dem Jahre 1876 stammen und Bezug auf das Schlußbild der "Götterdämmerung" nehmen. Das Portrait mit Wagners Widmung findet Erwähnung im Wagner-Briefe-Verzeichnis (unter A 673) und im Auktionskatalog von Leo Liepmannsohn (Kat. 63, Nr. 193). - Die Bildseite etwas fleckig, die Schrift verso etwas verblaßt. - Hermann Kaiser: Der Bühnenmeister Carl Brandt und Richard Wagner.

H. Ducourtieux-Ducourtieux & Gout, Limoges, 1876. Demi basane de l'époque portant le titre doré, ainsi que la date de parution dorée. Trente-sept volumes in-8 (234x152 mm), volumes avec en moyenne entre 200 et 300 pages. Note manuscrite volante au volume de l'année 1889 (entre les pages 126-127).

Au volume de l'année 1885, le dernier feuillet est collé au second contreplat, avec une déchirure sans manque. Édition originale. A la fin du XIXème siècle, à l'initiative d'un jeune médecin puis d'un collectif de praticiens, une revue spécialisée centrée sur l'actualité médicale de Limoges et de sa région est créée. Elle est tout d'abord publiée sous le titre "Revue médicale de Limoges" entre 1867 et 1874 (interruption de la parution entre octobre 1869 et août 1872) par un médecin seul. En 1876, la parution reprend grâce à un collectif de médecins de la Société de Médecine et de Pharmacie de la Haute-Vienne, dans le but d'entretenir et de transmettre les connaissances et observations de ces derniers. C'est la naissance d'une revue d'envergure à l'échelle de la région, qui est publiée sous le titre "Journal de la Société de Médecine & de Pharmacie de la Haute-Vienne" qui devient en mars 1891 "Le Limousin médical" (Sa publication s'arrête en 1914).

Carroll, Lewis [Dodgson, Charles]
London: Macmillan and Co., 1876. First Edition in Presentation Bi. First edition in variant presentation binding of scarlet cloth (intended to match Alice in Wonderland) stamped in gilt, all edges gilt. Though typically found in buff cloth with black stamping, Lewis Carroll wrote to his publisher ordering copies in various colors stamped in gilt, intended for his give friends as presentation copies, requesting such as "100 bound in red and gold, 20 in dark blue and gold, 20 in white vellum and gold." First issue with "baker" not "butcher" on page 83. Binder's ticket on rear paste down. Good+. Cloth shows several small stains, gilt lightly rubbed but generally bright. Spine cloth darkened, chipped at ends, corners frayed, front outer joint partially split, hinge at rear open and binding a bit fragile. A very scarce issue of a book whose author proclaimed it "didn't mean anything but nonsense," which has nonetheless emotionally resonated with and beguiled readers ever since its publication. Good.

SAVILL, John Eden
1876. The uniform series, in watercolour and pencil on brown paper, are matted behind glass in modern frames; visible image size is 240 × 338 mm in all instances. The brown paper has darkened over time, possibly caused by the original card mounts, or exposure to light; apart from a few trifling surface marks to the plain upper portions of two items, and a few tiny light spots (possibly caused by impurities in the old mounts), the paintings are in fine condition. Three of them are signed 'J. Eden Savill' (and two of these are dated 1876); the fourth painting is unsigned. John Eden Savill (circa 1847-1920) 'was an Englishman who had a short but successful career in South Australia as a racehorse owner and trainer, culminating in his horse winning the 1882 Melbourne Cup. He arrived in Adelaide sometime before 1871, when he was, as "Cerberus", drawing political cartoons for "The Portonian", a weekly satirical newspaper, and was also exhibiting his artwork. Shortly after his 1882 triumph with "The Assyrian", Savill and family left for England' and he did not return to Australia (Wikipedia, providing ample substantiation). His identity and activities were not known to Joan Kerr when she published her comprehensive 'Dictionary of Australian Artists' in 1991. That same year, the only example of his work to appear in the even more comprehensive records of Australian art auctions was offered by Christies Australia - in May (unsold at $1500-2000), and again in September, when it sold for $1650, with a reduced estimate of $1000-1500.

Bonhams, the auctioneers, say that they only know of 8 copies and those are all in public collections, amongst them: the National Library of Scotland, the Royal Collection and Balliol College, Oxford some American Universities also have a copy.
