        The career of Jesus Christ: Being a supplement to the author's Science of the Bible.

      Streator, IL: Free Press Publishing House 8vo (20.7 cm, 8.2"). Frontis. (incl. in pagination), 52, [2] pp.; [60 (20 blank)] ff.. 1877 Uncommon sole edition of this Freethinker interpretation of the New Testament, focusing on an astrological/astronomical analysis in which Jesus personifies "the annual Sun" and the events of the Gospels overall serve as a representation of the phenomena of the seasons. Wooley uses these "discoveries" to claim that Christianity as a religion is "a fraud of the blackest dye" (p. 51), adding that the working classes (former slaves explicitly included) are duped and oppressed by the capitalists (Northern and Southern) who encourage them to besot themselves with religion, whiskey, and tobacco rather than work towards real, liberating knowledge. The printed Career is followed in this little volume by an extended manuscript section containing neatly written excerpts from Wooley's Science of the Bible or an Analysis of the Hebrew Mythology. Contemporary half calf over textured cloth, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label and gilt-ruled raised bands; front cover detached, leather scuffed. All page edges marbled. Upper portion of front free endpaper torn away; two front fly-leaves partially excised. Back free endpaper with pencilled owner's name. Printed portion very slightly age-toned, with faint creasing to first section.

        Voyage aux Etats-Unis

      1877. Oblong folio. (13 1/4 x 18 1/2 inches). 19 original watercolours (11 3/8 x 7 7/8 inches and smaller), mounted recto and verso of 7 thin card leaves (one page mounted with 4 drawings, one with 3 and one with 2, the others with 1 drawing per page, the final page blank), all painted by a single hand, and all with the location identified in ink in the lower margin of each drawing or on the mount just below. Modern blue half morocco gilt, blue morocco title label centrally-placed on upper cover 'Voyage aux / Etats-Unis / 1876-77' A fine series of original watercolour views of Lake George, N.Y., and elsewhere - including one watercolour of Central Park, New York. From the heading ('Voyage aux Etats-Unis / 1876-1877') on the first page of this album, as well as from the wording of the captions to the drawings, it is clear that these highly accomplished watercolours are the work of a French-speaking visitor to North America in 1876-1877. They include 14 views of Lake George and its vicinity (including one of Caldwell [now Lake George Village] and one of Tea Island). Also included is a single view of a rocky outcrop and trees in Central Park, another of Glenn Falls on the Hudson, and a third of the Montmorency Falls just outside Quebec, as well as two fine but rather unexpected Swiss views of Amphion, Lake Geneva (both dated 1877).

        Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan, or the Central and Western Rajpoot States of India ... Second edition

      Calcutta: [printed by G.C. De. The New Sanskrit Press] published by Harimohan Mookerjee, 1877. 2 volumes, quarto. (10 3/4 x 8 3/4 inches). Pp.[i]-xxxiii, [1], [1]-639 [1]; [1-4], [i]-xxvi, [1]-674. 2 folding letterpress tables. 16 plates by N.C. Bose, S.C. Dass, T.N. Dev and others after Captain Waugh (6), Ghafsi (5) and others (including: 1 folding engraved cross-sectional map and 1 folding plate of script printed on recto and verso), occasional illustrations. Original green cloth, covers blocked in blind, the flat spines divided into five compartments with double fillets in blind, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments Very rare Calcutta edition of this valuable early study of the history, beliefs and topography of Rajasthan: only a single incomplete copy is recorded by OCLC. No complete copies of this Calcutta edition are recorded by OCLC, and no copy is listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty-five years. The plates are of particular interest. The plates are after the London edition of 1829-1832, and provide an interesting insight into the work of engravers working in the region at the time: little is known or recorded of the work of native engravers working in India in the mid-19th century. The author went to India as a cadet in the Bengal army of the British East India Company in 1799. He commanded the escort attached to the Resident at Sindhia from 1812 to 1817. In the latter year he was in charge of the Intelligence Department which largely contributed to the break up of the Maratha Confederacy in the Third Anglo-Maratha War, and was of great assistance in the campaign in Rajputana. In 1818 he was appointed political agent for the states of western Rajputana, where he successfully acted as an arbitrator between rival chieftains, settling their feuds. While Resident in Rajputana, Tod collected materials for his Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan , a work of great importance for South Asian scholars. Tod presents the contemporary geography and a detailed history of Rajputana along with the history of the Rajput clans who ruled most of the area at that time. Tod's work drew on local archives, Rajput traditional sources, and monuments such as the Edicts of Asoka found at Junagadh. He returned to England in 1823 with a wealth of material for what became a fundamental study of Rajasthan's historical development. The first edition was published in London between 1829 and 1832, with a total of fifty plates. Most of the images were engraved by Edward Finden from originals from various sources - most notably a local artist whose name is given as Ghafsi, or Captain Waugh, a friend and kinsman of the author. The present edition demonstrates the esteem in which the work was held in the region, even fifty years later. A more immediate token was given by the ruler of Udaipur, who, when the work first appeared, renamed a village in Tod's honour: Barsawada became "Todgarh" (or Tods fort) - a name that it still bears today.

        Map of the City of Brooklyn, and village of Williamsburgh, showing the size of blocks and width of streets as laid out by the Commissioners, the old Farm lines Water line and all recent changes in streets. Laid out from accurate surveys & documents

      New York: Benj. S.D. Demarest, 1877. Lithographic map, with original colour, in eight sections with linen joints, four sections linen-backed, two backed with marbled paper and two mounted onto the inner covers of a pair of half calf cloth-covered boards, the boards expertly rebacked and cornered, 33 3/8 x 47 3/8 inches, in modern cloth box. A very fine large-scale map of Brooklyn, depicting the city in the middle of the 19th century, with detailed information about the city's early settlers As the map itself makes clear: this is a reissue of a map that was originally published in 1846 by Richard Butt. It was transferred by George A. Buckingham Jr., in February 1877, and photo-lithographed by Robert A. Welcke. The addition of colour not only adds greatly to the attractiveness of the image, it also allows the boundaries of the early land holdings (most marked with the names of their original owners) to be clearly seen despite the presence of the grids of the modern streets. A fascinating historical record of Brooklyn's past. Phillips, Maps of America , p.176.

Das Vorwort von Gerold Vogel ist datiert ?Zürich, October 1877? ? Repräsentatives, aufwendig gestaltetes und ausgestattetes, ganz dem Geist des Historismus verpflichtetes Jubiläumswerk. Titel, Überschriften und Bildlegenden in Deutsch und Französisch, Darstellungen mit den Namen der historischen Truppenführer und herausragenden Krieger. ? ?[Für] den Umzug in Murten im Erinnerungsjahr 1876 [hatte] jeder der an den Burgunderkriegen beteiligten Stände eine vollständig ausgerüstete und kostümierte Abteilung zu entsenden. [.] Die enormen finanziellen Aufwendungen nötigten die Veranstalter, ein zusätzliches Kadettenfest ausfallen zu lassen. Schon 1875 erliess das ?Centralcomité? in Murten die Einladungen an die betreffenden 18 eidgenössischen Stände (Thurgau, die beiden Appenzell, Tessin und Graubünden hatten an den Burgunderkriegen nicht teilgenommen) und an die ?vier Waldstädte am Rhein? (Waldshut, Laufenburg, Säckingen und Rheinfelden). Die Städte Breisach, Strassburg, Colmar, Schlettstadt, Mülhausen, Hagenau und Rottweil wurden durch baslerische Bannerträger vertreten. [.] Zur Bestreitung der Unkosten wurden in der ganzen Schweiz Beiträge gesammelt. [.] Die beiden Maler Rodolphe-Auguste Bachelin (1830?1890) und Gustave Roux (1828?1885) lieferten die Kostümbilder. ?Statt Phantasiecostüme zu zeichnen, studierten sie vorerst die deutschen und französischen Werke des XV., Jahrhunderts, die Chroniken Diebold Schillings, die Burgunderteppiche und die besten modernen Costümwerke ., um den Charakter der Kleidung und Ausrüstung des damaligen schweizerischen Krieges festzustellen? [.] Ein Jahr später erschien in Zürich (bei C. Knüsli) ein Prachtwerk mit Bildern [.] von Karl Jauslin (1842?1904) und Gustave Roux (1828?1885). Das Album enthielt 40 farbige Lithographien. Über 1200 Zugteilnehmer sind im Rollenverzeichnis mit Namen und Herkunft aufgeführt. Neben diesem teuren Erinnerungsbuch gab es eine kleine, von Karl Jauslin gezeichnete Ausgabe, als Leporello gefaltet, zu kaufen.? (Theo Gantner, Der Festumzug. Ein volkskundlicher Beitrag zum Festwesen des 19. Jahrhunderts in der Schweiz. Basel 1970, pp. 23?25, mit Abb. aus dem Leporello, Zit. p. 23 u. 25, aus der bemerkenswert einlässlichen Besprechung dieses besonderen Festanlasses). ?? Murten gehört zu den drei entscheidenden Schlachten der Eidgenossen im sog. Burgunderkrieg der Jahre 1474 bis 1477, als dessen Kernstücke die entscheidenden Schlachten in der Region des Berner Seelandes und, nördlich entfernt davon, in Lothringen, erscheinen: ?Karl der Kühne wurde zuerst nach der Belagerung von Grandson in der Schlacht bei Grandson (2.3.1476) in die Flucht geschlagen und verlor seine gesamte kostbare Habe. Auch die Revanche durch die Belagerung von Murten misslang ihm; sein Söldnerheer wurde in der Schlacht bei Murten (22.6.1476) aufgerieben. Den dritten Versuch bezahlte Karl der Kühne mit dem Leben; Unbekannte erschlugen ihn nach der Schlacht bei Nancy (5.1.1477), in welcher die Eidgenossen dem verbündeten Herzog von Lothringen zu Hilfe geeilt waren.? (C. Sieber-Lehmann, Lemma ?Burgunderkriege?, in: HLS). Karl war im Prinzip den Eidgenossen durchaus freundlich gesinnt. Durch eine fatale Verknüpfung von Umständen geriet er aber einerseits in eine Schutzverpflichtung zu Gunsten des österreichischen Herzogs Sigismund von Habsburg, dem die Eidgenossen immer wieder zu sc [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Grape Vines. Grapes And Grape Vines Of California.

      - [San Francisco: Edward Bosqui, 1877] San Francisco: John Windle, 1980. Folio, [64] pp., 10 color plates with text. A fine copy in sheets and portfolio as issued. Limited to 40 copies for sale in sheets; this exact facsimile of the first California ampelography to show the grapes in superb color printing by the renowned printer Bosqui was reissued by San Francisco printers and binders from one of the few extant perfect copies (now at the Lilly Library). It is the rarest of American color plate books and this wonderfully accurate facsimile has an introduction by Kevin Starr. The edition was not completed and only 65 sets were released (of which 25 were bound). Zamorano Select (2010) 34A writes that "in his valuable introduction to the Windle facsimile" Kevin Starr provides historical background for the original edition. "Both as a work on viticulture and as a color-plate book, 'Grapes and Grape Vines of California' was an unprecedented achievement for a California press" as indeed was the facsimile which was so impressive that Harcourt Brace Jovanovich reissued it in a reduced format trade edition that went through two large printings before being remaindered.

        EHON TAKA KAGAMI: THE ILLUSTRATED MIRROR OF HAWKS. PICTURES OF DIFFERENT KINDS O

      [Tokyo 1877-79, Nakamura]. Stitched yellow wrappers, title. slips, very good, issued in two parts: part I: vols. 1-3;. part II: vols. 1-2, profusely illustrated by woodcuts, the. complete 5 vol. set, clean contents, new cloth Chitsu case.. THE MOST MAGNIFICIENT SINGLE RESOURCE ON JAPANESE FALCONRY JAPAN'S PREMIER SINGLE RESOURCE ON FALCONRY: A major resource on Japanese falconry, the capture, taming & teaching of falcons, the grooming, feeding and culture of the bird of prey. Wonderful illustrations of falcons, the associated tools & equipment, stands, methods of warming in winter before the hunt, winter hunting, respect for. On the flushing to expose game birds to be hunted by the falcon, the kill, capture of the quarry. How to tether, hoods, master's gloves and other accoutrements, field work, breeding, bathing &c. * EDITION: FIRST AND ONLY EDITION: This magnificent work was issued once in a single FIRST AND ONLY EDITION, and is complete in five volumes. The first series: 3 vols. were published in 1877, followed by the second series consisting of 2 volumes in 1879. Each volume has identifying title slips with: series 1: volumes jo, chu, ge in 3 parts]; series 2: the supplement jo, ge in 2 parts. * PRINTING TECHNIQUE: This marvelous work uses crushed mica as an integral part of the hand-made Washi paper. These tiny flecks of mica give a sparkle to the illustrations, and are especially effective on the feather portion of the falcons. Mica gives a realistic and "high-tech" touch to the wood-cut printing technique. Printed by hand. * Per Dr. Shigeru Oikawa, the eminent scholar on Kyosai, in a letter from him to us in 1998, he discusses the dates of the set. He states: "Takakagami was, I think, first published in 3 volumes with the title ...cover was blue or black. Then came the last 2 volumes ...this time the...color was yellow. The exact date is not known but the first edition in 3 volumes [first series in vols. 1,2,3,] could be 1860's and some examples of the full set in 5 volumes has the date of 1875. Kyosai had finished all of the drawings in 1860's but the publication seemed to be delayed..." In essence what he is saying that the first 3 volumes were published first, then later the balance of 2 volumes were published to make a full set of 5 volumes. We have never ever seen the first three in a separate group, in any color except yellow with dates of 1877, nor have we seen in our 45 years tenure any copies in blue/black. We have not found any reference books stating any information about any 1875 edition, we have only found the 1877-79 edition. One would assume that if such an earlier edition did exist bibliographers would have recorded this along with the current edition we now offer for sale. ***** * ABOUT THE ARTIST & AUTHOR KAWANABE KYOSAI: * Per N. Brown: BLOCK PRINTING AND BOOK ILLUSTRATION, p.196. Kawanabe Kyosai aka: Gyosai [1831-89] was a Kano painter, printmaker, illustrator, the son of a Samurai. Studied as a child under Utagawa Kuniyoshi, then in Tokyo under Maemura Towa, later under the most celebrated Kano Tohaku Chinshin who gave him the name Toiku at 19 years old. Loved drinking Sake, did some of his best work while under the influence, exhibited a the Vienna Intl. Exposition in 1873 & in Paris in 1883, where the West recognized his greatness. * Josiah Conder recognized his great talent & wrote a grand reference book on him: PAINTINGS AND STUDIES, Tokyo 1911. His famous KYOSAI GADEN, [L. Dawes p.92] was widely appreciated in Europe, it even had English captions for the foreign market! This was Kyosai's attempt to show the world a wide variety of ancient Japanese & Chinese painting styles; it is a magnificent set. Please inquire with us for to see if we have a copy for sale. * COLLATION & SPECIAL ILLUSTRATING TECHINIQUES: None of the above reference books list details of a full set which was issued complete in 5 volumes: 3 + 2 vols. supplement. The full list of the set titles appears in the back of vol. 5 where a catalogue of Kyosai's titles are listed by the publisher. This title was issued as a serial in 1877,the supplemental 2 volumes in 1879. * The collation of the set is: vol. 1,3,4,5, each have 10p.; vol. 2 has 11p. Every page is nicely illustrated, it contains some 111 illustrations in all. Most copies have mica-flecked paper that gives a sparkle and sheen to the bird's feathers. This technique is difficult to create and is exceptionally and RARE ! * THE VARIETY OF BIRDS USED: * The Siberian goshawk or [falcon] O-taka [in Japanese] has been considered the best variety for use in falconry in Japan since ancient times. The Chinese call these birds Lao Ying. * RARITY: Seldom found in the complete five volume state, in clean and collector's condition. This work is the most comprehensive single monograph devoted to Japanese falconry ever published in the 19th century or in prior periods. Gyosai's superb artistic skill and solid ability to capture the essence and feel of real and live Japanese falconry has yet to be surpassed in woodcut media. The application of mica dust is now a lost art, and never done. The work outlines the ancient methods and culture of the falcon. This work records the last of the ancient falconry methods of care, raising and training, again a lost art in Japan. Japanese E-hon [illustrated books] on this subject are SCARCE, and are seldom found if ever on the open market, or in auctions in a complete and excellent state. * This set is an historical monument, a corner-stone, the "Sui Generis" on the subject of falconry in Japan. A major treasure to any fancier of falconry or ornithology in Japan. The Siberian goshawk or [falcon] O-taka [in Japanese] has been considered the best variety for use in peregrine falconry in Japan. **** REFERENCES/BIBLIOGRAPHY: * N.

        FUGAKU HYAKKEI: THE HUNDRED VIEWS OF MT FUJI

      Tokyo 1877, Hayashi. Black stitched stiff wrs., 3 vol. set,. woodblock printed on hand-made paper, very good, vol.1 cover. edges bit worn, contents clean, clear impressions, tones of. grey, Sumi, black, indigo blue Chitsu case. RARE. HOKUSAI'S MOST CELEBRATED BOOK ON SACRED MT. FUJI Perhaps Hokusai's [1760-1849] most famous work in book form, illustrating a profusion of views of Mt. Fuji from all perspectives. This was also the prototype for his great color print series on Mt. Fuji. A delightful & impressive work, used as a standard for over a hundred years by artists, designers and collectors. This monograph is devoted to Japan's most sacred Mt. Fuji in all its glory, portrayed in various seasons and as seen by common folk as they go about their daily lives & occupations. * The volumes are 22.5 x 15.5 cm., with 25+25+25 double folded leaves or 150 pages in all, with illustrations of Mt. Fuji on 144 of the pages, 6 pages of Japanese text. The history of the various editions are complex, suffice to say that the work was originally issued in two volumes [it could be that the whole work was simply bound within two covers]. Then there were basically two main editions: the first being published in 1834-5, and reprints of this the first edition in pink covers called "FALCON FEATHERS," later ones in yellow covers. Another in 1875, in black stiff covers. The contents in all cases identical, the size varied by only a few centimeters, essentially all are identical. * The introduction consisting of the first two pages in volume one were actually written by Hokusai. * The work is marvelous, and shows how Mt. Fuji was portrayed in the life of the Japanese. How in the spring time people sat outdoors and viewed the cherry blossoms with Mt. Fuji in the background. The theme is how Mt. Fuji was always present in their daily lives as a background. The artistry and skill of Hokusai is without parallel, he illustrated using his keen ingenuity at drawing skills. He put the sacred mountain in the picture in a myriad of ways. The mystical quality of Mt. Fuji is illustrated and conveyed by his acute composition, insight and visionary-like avant-garde skills which were head and shoulders above most all other artists of his time. Hailed as perhaps Japan's greatest artist of the 19th century. All of his original woodcut books are rare and of great value. * REPRINT EDITION: The 1948 reprint edition was an exact woodblock-printed edition of the earlier edition and has all of the same pages and illustrations found in earlier editions, with a paper Chitsu or folding cover, nicely done, good registry, color, the exact same size as earlier editions. * AN ENGLISH TRANSLATION: If you are interested in the English translation of each page of this set, please inquire with us for this title. It is a superb work, giving valuable insight to the texts found in this stunning work. It bears the title: FUGAKU HIYAKU-KEI: ONE HUNDRED VIEWS OF FUJI BY HOKUSAI.

        MÈmoires d'un Gommeux. Par Saint-Patrice [pseud]

      Paris: E. Dentu, 1877 - 8vo, contemporary black morocco with coat-of-arms gilt-stamped on the upper and lower boards, gilt lettering and inner dentelles, a.e.g. Frontis and three plates. ? James Harden-Hickey's own copy of his third novel, MÈmoires d'un Gommeux, with his quasi-bogus coat of arms and armorial insignias gilt-stamped on the binding. Harden-Hickey (1854-1898) was one of the most colorful and picaresque figures in 19th century Western literature. Born in San Francisco during the gold rush, he moved with his mother to Paris at an early age and during his formative years was effectively a Frenchman. He was flamboyant, adventurous and had serious delusions of grandeur, which he managed to in part fulfill by marrying wealthy women. He was made a baron of the Holy Roman Empire and years later when sailing the Atlantic, he noticed that the south Atlantic island of Trinidad had not been claimed by a country. He proceeded to claim it for himself. He took the title Prince James I of Trinidad and began selling Trinidad government bonds in New York City. The British seized Trinidad in 1895 and Harden-Hickey's dreams of his own country were over. He died in 1898 from an overdose of morphine in an El Paso, Texas hotel, a fitting end considering that one of the books he wrote was Euthanasia: the Aesthetics of Suicide (NY, 1894). In all Harden-Hickey wrote 12 books, several of them novels issued under the pseudonym Saint Patrice, and he edited the Paris newspaper Tribolet. ?

        Véridique histoire de la conquete de la nouvelle Espagne

      1877 - 4 volumes Paris, Lemerre, 1877-1887, in-12, 4 volumes, reliures de l'époque dos à nerfs et coins de maroquin bleu, têtes dorées, non rognées, Édition originale de cette traduction magistrale, par l'auteur des Trophées ; ses deux préfaces, "Espagne 1513-1514" et "la jeunesse de Cortez, ont été considérées par ses contemporains, Flaubert, Taine, Barbey d'Aurevilly, comme de véritables chefs-d’œuvre à la fois du point de vue historique et littéraire. Il fut lauréat de l'Académie Française pour cet ouvrage. Il s'agit d'une des plus importantes chroniques anciennes de la Nouvelle Espagne, dans laquelle on trouve notamment une relation détaillée de la prise de Mexico. Le conquistador Bernal Diaz del Castillo cingla pour le Nouveau Monde en 1514 aux cotés de Hernan Cortez. Aux cours des expéditions de Cortez, il participa à près de cent vingt batailles et fut témoin des négociations avec les Aztèques. Sa relation qui ne fut publiée qu'en 1632, décrit la rencontre de Cortez avec Montezuma, l'emprisonnement du prince Atzèque, la chute de Mexico et le retour en Espagne ; elle rend compte également des dissensions internes de l'armée espagnole. José Maria de Hérédia a, dans sa traduction, modernisé le récit du conquistador et en a rendu la lecture passionnante. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Grape Vines. Grapes And Grape Vines Of California.

      [San Francisco: Edward Bosqui, 1877] San Francisco: John Windle, 1980. Folio, [64] pp., 10 color plates with text. A fine copy in sheets and portfolio as issued. Limited to 40 copies for sale in sheets; this exact facsimile of the first California ampelography to show the grapes in superb color printing by the renowned printer Bosqui was reissued by San Francisco printers and binders from one of the few extant perfect copies (now at the Lilly Library). It is the rarest of American color plate books and this wonderfully accurate facsimile has an introduction by Kevin Starr. The edition was not completed and only 65 sets were released (of which 25 were bound). Zamorano Select (2010) 34A writes that ?in his valuable introduction to the Windle facsimile? Kevin Starr provides historical background for the original edition. ?Both as a work on viticulture and as a color-plate book, ?Grapes and Grape Vines of California? was an unprecedented achievement for a California press? as indeed was the facsimile which was so impressive that Harcourt Brace Jovanovich reissued it in a reduced format trade edition that went through two large printings before being remaindered.

        Panorama of San Francisco from California St. Hill

      [San Francisco]: Morse's Gallery, 1877. Folding albumen photographic panorama mounted on eleven panels, (7½ x 87¼ inches overall), backed with cloth, caption title, photographic credit, and publisher's imprint printed on center panel. (Old staining to the panels below the photographic prints). Original gilt cloth binding (some old dampstaining to the lower edge of the covers), cloth chemise, half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. Perhaps the most famous early view of San Francisco. One of the landmarks of 19th-century American photography, and an iconic image of San Francisco. This remarkable panorama dramatically shows the growth of San Francisco nearly thirty years after the onset of the Gold Rush. In the 1870s, San Francisco audiences were hungry for panoramic displays, and the rest of the country was intrigued by San Francisco, the largest city in the West. Muybridge satisfied all appetites by providing a 360° degree view of the city, creating what Rebecca Solnit calls "an impossible sight, a vision of the city in all directions, a transformation of a circular space into a linear photograph." David Harris calls Muybridge's San Francisco panorama "one of the supreme conceptual and technical achievements in the history of architectural photography." Eadweard Muybridge took the photographs that make up this panorama from a vantage point on the central tower of the unfinished Nob Hill residence of railroad baron Mark Hopkins, then the highest point in the developed portion of the city. The work was done in June or July, 1877, and took some five hours to complete, based on the shifting shadows seen in the image. Muybridge began in the late morning with a view toward the southwest (the tenth plate in the panorama) and proceeded in a clockwise direction, moving his camera away from the sun from one image to the next. Muybridge's view is from some 380 feet above the sea level, and the view reaches some fifty miles into the distance and encompasses a width of fifteen miles. Despite the great scope of the work precise details of the city are visible throughout, and one can clearly see hanging laundry, ships in the harbor, shop signs, and a clock on a tower in the fifth panel reading quarter to two (other copies of the panorama show the clock reading nearly five-thirty). San Francisco spreads throughout the panorama and the dynamism of the city is clearly evident, as many unfinished buildings and roads under construction are also seen. Muybridge's panorama was advertised as being for sale in July 1877, offered for eight dollars rolled or ten dollars accordion-folded and bound, as in the present copy. Buyers could buy the panorama directly from Muybridge, or through Morse's Gallery. Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904) was one of the great photographic innovators of the nineteenth century. Born in England, he came to San Francisco in 1855 and built his reputation on photographs of San Francisco, Yosemite, and other western locales. The year after he produced his San Francisco panorama, Muybridge, at the behest of another railroad magnate, Leland Stanford, produced a sequence of photographs of a galloping horse that proved that all four of the animals hooves were off the ground at the same time. Muybridge's work in sequential photography, in which he photographed animals and humans in motion, laid the groundwork for motion pictures. A remarkable view of San Francisco, and a high point in the photographic representation of the West. David Harris, Eadweard Muybridge and the Photographic Panorama of San Francisco , 1850-1880, catalogue item 31, and pp.37-53; Rebecca Solnit, River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West; Paul A. Falconer, "Muybridge's Window to the Past: A Wet-Plate View of San Francisco," in California History (Summer 1978), pp.130-157.
