        KANSAS CITY ILLUSTRATED 1876 - 1877.

      Kansas City: Ramsey, Millett & Hudson, [1877]. - 24pp. Lithographed title printed on blue paper, thirty- nine (of forty) tinted lithographed plates printed in purple ink against tan backgrounds. Publisher's blue cloth, lettered in gilt on the upper cover, rebacked to style, patterned endpapers. Some soiling and chips at edges of text and plates. Else very good. Provenance: Willie White (period presentation inscriptions and use as an album amicorum on verso of plates and on blanks). Includes accounts of commerce in Kansas City and an historical essay stating: "We cannot make a Venice of Kansas city. Why hide her homeliness? Why strive to conceal her plainness? She must stand for the present, not draped in stately toga, standing in graceful pose on marble pedestal, but in the practical garb of labor, with hands stained by enterprising toil." The views are wonderful examples of American lithography in the West and include a general view of Kansas City, a bird's-eye view, and images of noted public buildings and businesses. A rare item. Not in Streeter, Graff, Deák, or Reps. OCLC cites eight complete copies, including Yale, Kansas City Public Library, State Historical Society of Missouri, and the University of Missouri; an incomplete copy is located at the Clements Library. HOWES K15a.

This work recounts the rescue of survivors from the whale ship "Essex" (which had been sunk by a whale). It is unusual because the entire account is given in rhymed quatrains. According to the note in Forster's bibliography, “Dauphin, Captain Zimri Coffin, sailed on 4 Sept. 1820, returning in July 1823. Voyage included Galapagos and Hawaiian Islands (1822). Poem recounts the finding of boat from the "Essex" with two survivors aboard. An officer list also provided.”—Forster. At least two editions of this work exist, but this one is especially gussied up, being bound in full crimson leather with the title "Whaling Journal" stamped on the front cover, and all edges gilt. See Forster 71. Jenkins p. 129. A very good copy, bound in original printed wrappers.

        Autograph Letter Signed to Lawson Tait

      Down, 17 January [1877] - CHARLES DARWIN ON SEXUALITY AND THE TRANSMISSION OF HEREDITARY CHARACTERISTICS. The recipient of this letter, pioneering pelvic and abdominal surgeon Lawson Tait (1845-1899), is one of the fathers of gynecology. He corresponded extensively with Darwin from 1870 until the naturalist’s death in 1882. Tait actively promoted Darwinism in the medical community, and Darwin in turn quoted Tait’s 1869 paper “Law of Natural Selection” in The Descent of Man (1871). In January 1877 Tait sent Darwin an extract from his forthcoming Diseases of Women. In that work Tait observed that “one of the greatest practical results of the discovery by Mr. Darwin of the descent of man from the animals” is that sexual instincts (or “passions”) are among the “most necessary as well as the most prevalent” of all instincts in humans. In this fascinating letter Darwin reacts to Tait’s writing, stating, “I sh[oul]d be glad to give any criticisms, but I have none to make & agree with what you say — There is, however, one trifling point on which I differ; viz. that I believe the high value of well-bred males is due to their transmitting their good qualities to a far greater number of offspring than can the female.” This letter, written a few years after The Descent of Man, provides a fascinating glimpse of Darwin’s views on sexuality and the transmission of hereditary characteristics. Provenance: Sotheby’s 24 July 1978, lot 225 (“Property of a Lady”). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        DE BENGUELA ÁS TERRAS DE IÁCCA.

      - Descripção de uma viagem na Africa Central e Occidental. Comprehendendo narrações, aventuras e estudos importantes sobre as cabeceiras dos rios Cu-nene, Cu-bango, Lu-ando, Cu-anza e Cuango, e de grande parte do curso dos dois ultimos alem da descoberta dos rios Hamba, Cauali, Sussa e Cu-gho, e larga notícia sobre as terras de Quiteca N'bungo, Sosso, Futa e Iácca. Por. Officiaes da Armada Real. Expedição organisada nos annos de 1877-1880. Edição illustrada. Imprensa Nacional. Lisboa. 1881. Obra em 2 volumes. De 22x16 cm. Com 379 e 413 pags. Encadernações decoradas com estampagens e titulos dourados. Profusamente ilustrados com retratos dos autores em anterrosto, gravuras com panoramas da progressão da coluna expedicionária, gravuras de indígenas, tipos e chefaturas locais, desenhos de objectos recolhidos e as suas denominações, pautas musicais, mapas parciais no texto e ainda 2 mapas desdobráveis acondicionados em estojos abertos nas guardas interiores das encadernações, nomeadamente: ?Carta das terras entre Luanda e Ambaca e do curso do rio Cu-anza do Dondo ao Oceano por Capello e Ivens [De 40x80 cm na escala de 1:370370]. Comprehendendo o traçado definitivo do caminho de ferro e parte da directriz projectada segundo indicações dos engenheiros Raphael Gorjão da Commissão de 1877 a 1880 e de Angelo de Souza Prado, impressa na Lithographia da Imprensa Nacional? e ?Carta da África Occidental Austro-Equatorial [de 120x90 cm na escala 1:481480] contendo o itinerário e explorações de Capello e Ivens 1877-1890?, apresentando os perfis das altitudes nos vários percursos (Dondo e Benguela) na longitude e na latitude e um quadro de declinações magnéticas. Brito Capelo foi escolhido em Maio de 1877, para dirigir uma expedição à África Central, juntamente com o também oficial de marinha Roberto Ivens e o major do exército Serpa Pinto. De acordo com o decreto que os mandatou, foram nomeados «para comporem e dirigirem a expedição que há-de explorar, no interesse da ciência e da civilização, os territórios compreendidos entre as províncias de Angola e Moçambique, e estudar as relações entre as bacias hidrográficas do Zaire e do Zambeze, segundo as instruções que receberem autorizadas pelo meu Governo». Sob os auspícios da Sociedade de Geografia, esta expedição tinha por fim «?o estudo do rio Cuango nas suas relações com o Zaire e com os territórios portugueses da costa ocidental, assim como toda a região que compreende ao Sul e a sueste as origens dos rios Zambeze e Cunene e se prolonga ao Norte, até entrar pelas bacias hidrográficas do Cuanza e do Cuango?». A 7 de Julho de 1877 iniciam a expedição. Após concluído o trajecto Benguela-Bié, começam as divergências entre Brito Capelo e Serpa Pinto. Este ultimo quer tentar a travessia até Moçambique, no espírito do que desejava Luciano Cordeiro, e na ânsia de levar a cabo uma empresa grandiosa em África. A expedição divide-se em duas com Serpa Pinto a falhar o seu objectivo, ao não conseguir atingir qualquer ponto da costa moçambicana como era sua intenção. Consegue no entanto chegar a Pretória no Transval e posteriormente a Durban no Natal, ambas as cidades em províncias britânicas. Brito Capelo e Roberto Ivens concentraram as suas atenções na missão inicial, a qual prosseguiram, e exploraram as relações entre as bacias hidrográficas do Zaire e do Zambeze. Percorreram as regiões de Benguela até às terras de Iaca, tendo delimitado os cursos dos rios Cubango, Luando e Tohicapa. A 1 de Março de 1880, Lisboa recebe triunfalmente Brito Capelo e Roberto Ivens, tendo o êxito da expedição ficado perpetuado nesta obra. Em 1875, Luciano Cordeiro fundara a Sociedade de Geografia de Lisboa. O seu principal propósito não estava exclusivamente direcionado para África, mas desde cedo, com a criação da Comissão Nacional Portuguesa de Exploração e Civilização da África, mais conhecida por Comissão de África, assumiu a função de despertar a opinião pública para as questões do Ultramar e preparou as primeiras gra

        Cope's Tobacco Plant A Monthly Periodical Interesting to the Manufacturer, the Dealer, and the Smoker Nos 82-83, Vol 1, Nos 84-93, Vol 2

      Liverpool: John Fraser, Jan. 1877 - Dec. 1877. Folio, [148] pp., engraved headpieces and some illustrations in text. Full pebbled blue cloth, title stamped in gilt to backstrip. Some foxing to endpapers, internally bright; very good. Cope's Tobacco Plant was published by the firm of Cope Brothers and Company, and had a successful run of eleven years. Volume One, Number One appeared on March 30, 1870, and was completed with Number 83 in February, 1877. Volume Two ended with the number for January, 1881, which was also the final issuing of the paper. Each issue comprised twelve double-columned pages (except No. 83, Vol. 1, which includes a supplement), thirteen inches high and printed on thick coated paper, with frequent illustrations, and advertisements. The printer John Fraser, was also the editor. The contents of his periodical indicate that he was an ambitious and sharp-witted journalist with a preference for catholic literature. The Tobacco Plant was devoted to the cause of encouraging "class feeling among smokers by reminding them not only of the mellow delights of the habit they shared but also of the way in which tobacco permeated history." Altick p. 339.

        Autograph letter signed, regarding photographing children.

      Oxford, Christ Church, 21 Feb 1877 - 2 pages, small octavo (155 × 102 mm), written in purple ink. Name of recipient blocked out, short split at foot of fold, creased where folded twice for posting, excellent condition. An extraordinary letter, in Dodgson's most elusive ironic mood, which provides a number of teasing hints for those seeking to understand the nature of his relationships with the children he photographed. The surname of the recipient has been obliterated with blank ink swirls over Dodgson's characteristic purple ink, but could possibly be Sewell. The letter reads in full: "Ch. Ch. Feb 21/77. Dear Miss [erased], Thank you for a sight of the pretty photographs: but don't keep the child in for me. I am fearfully busy. And what could Miss Lloyd have been thinking to say such things of me! She must have taken some remark of mine about liking children, & have said to herself 'For "some" read "all": for "girls" read "boys": and for "ten" read "two".' Such a method of exegesis is wholly unsound; & yet she professes to be an admirer of Dr. Liddon! Believe me, yours very truly, C. L. Dodgson" Miss Lloyd was Catherine E. Lloyd, eight years his senior and the sister of a college friend. He remained friends with her until the end of his life, and they were still holidaying together at Eastbourne when they were both in their sixties. She was guardian or chaperone of Isabel Seymour, another child-friend of Dodgson. Dr Henry Parry Liddon (1829-1890), the Anglo-Catholic clergyman and biblical scholar, was also a long-term friend of Dodgson's.

Slightly rubbed, spine sunned, pale mottling to boards, sporadic light spotting. A very good copy. First edition. Presentation copy of this wonderful piece of Victorian imperialist folly, inscribed to "M. de Vernsuillet, with the authors Compts, 11 Oct. 1880" on the front free endpaper. With two manuscript sketch-maps laid-in, annotated in French presumably by the recipient, and depicting Cape Juby, now in southern Morocco, where the author, MacKenzie, established a British trading-station in 1875, and from where he proposed to cut a channel into the al-Juf depression of the western Sahara, thereby making western Africa and the Sudan accessible to European vessels from the north. MacKenzie argued that his plan would enable the more effective policing of the slave trade and improved transportation of European goods to central African markets, pointing out that the continent's main rivers, such as the Congo and the Nile, were not navigable for their entire courses, so that camel caravan was the only means of access to remote areas. The plan had originally been suggested by French engineer François Roudaire in 1870, and Mackenzie could demonstrate the personal support of Sir Bartle Frere, though his claim to territory at Cape Juby, granted by a local sheikh in 1879, was fiercely contested by Hassan I, sultan of Morocco, and he was forced to withdraw by 1890; at any rate, the entire idea has in recent years been demonstrated as "a potential macro-engineering fiasco" (Badescu and Cathcart, eds, Macro-engineering Seawater in Unique Environments, p. 493). Uncommon: this copy furnishes the only recorded appearance at auction, in 2003.
