        Illustrated Historical Atlas of the Counties of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Ontario . maps made from actual surveys by and under the supervision of by C.R. Allen, Civil Engineer

      J. H. Meacham & Co. [Engraved by Worley & Bracher, printed by F. Bourquin. Philadelphia], Toronto 1878 - (17 1/4 x 14 1/4 inches). Engraved title, numerous maps and plans (hand-coloured), views and portraits, printed on both sides of each sheet from pages 20 through 97 (plus two general maps preceding the county ones). Contemporary half morocco over cloth covered boards, upper cover lettered in gilt Provenance: L. B. Stinson (inked stamps) Scarce Canadian county atlas, with numerous maps and views. Devoted to Frontenac, Lennox and Addington counties in Ontario, this atlas includes over fifty maps and town plans, and nearly a hundred views of houses, farms and businesses, and portraits of the counties' inhabitants. The preliminary text provides a historical sketch of the region and the "Patron's Directory" in the rear includes places of residence, occupation, place of birth and year settled in each of the counties treated. As with most 19th century county atlases, the work was published strictly by subscription. Given the relatively small size of the county in terms of population, the atlas would not have been published in a large print run, resulting in its rarity today. "Despite their limitations and inaccuracies, nineteenth-century county atlases nonetheless preserve a detailed cartographical, biographical, and pictorial record . in the Victorian age" (Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers, p. 424).

        Noticias historicas de la Nueva Espana (or) Tratado del descubrimiento de las Yndias y su conquista, y los ritos y sacrificios, y costumbres de los yndios' y de los virreyes y gobernadores, que las han gobernado, especialmente en la Nueva Espana...

      Madrid: Imprenta de Manuel G. Hernandez, 1878. First edition. Folio, pp xxiv, 392, [+ 1 page of errata]. The editor has placed his own name on the title page, and his own title. Suarez de Peralta's title reads: "Tratado del descubrimiento de las Indias y su conquesta, y los ritos y sacrificios, y costumbres de los indios; y de los virreyes y gobernadores, que las han gobernado, especialmente en la Nueva Espana, y del suceso del Marques del Valle, segundo, Don Martin Cortes: del rebelion que se le inputo y de las justicias y muertes que hizieron en Mexico los Juezes comisarios que para ello fueron por su magestad; y del rompimiento de los ingleses, y del principio que tuvo Francisco Draque para ser declarado enemigo." Suarez de Peralta belonged to the family of Cortes' first wife, and was said to be of moorish descent. He was born in Mexico and with his brother engaged in wheat mills and real estate. He is known to have gone to Spain in 1579 and to have died there, sometime after 1590. His book is notable, both for his own first hand knowledge of the events he describes, but also his use of other original sources. This is the first edition. He wrote as well a treatise on horsemanship. Uncommon on the market, as only two copies are show at auction in over 50 years.This copy is INSCRIBED by the editor, Justo Zaragoza, to Edward E[verett] Hale, of "Man Without a Country " fame. Palau 379560: not in Sabin. In a contemporary binding, ex-library of Fr. Joseph Gleason, two call numbers in text.

        The Life of Yakoob Beg;

      London: W.H. Allen & Co.,, 1878. Athalik Ghazi, and Badaulet, Ameer of Kashgar. Octavo. Original red cloth, rebacked with the original spine laid down, title gilt to spine, blind panelling to the boards, dun surface-paper endpapers. Folding coloured map frontispiece. A little rubbed at the extremities, perhaps a quarter of an inch lacking head and tail of the spine, hinges slightly cracked, light toning, overall a very good copy. First edition of this uncommon life of this "remarkable Muslim adventurer" (Hopkirk, The Great Game, p322) from Piskent, Kokand - now Uzbekistan - who became ruler of Kashgaria. He signed treaties of amity and commerce with both Russia and Britain, but crucially failed to get them to support him against the Chinese. He died in 1877, after his army had been routed by the Emperor's invasion force - "whose leisurely progress included the planting and harvesting of its own crops", taking three years to reach Kashgar - most likely the victim of a poison plot; "Four of Yakoob's sons and two of his grandsons fell into the hands of the Chinese. One son was beheaded, one grandson died, and the rest were sentenced to be castrated and sent as slaves to the soldiers on the Amoor" (Giles, A Chinese Biographical Dictionary). The author was one of the founders, and first editor, of the Asiatic Quarterly Review, and a leading publicist of Empire and Asian affairs.

        Bigamy and Polygamy. Review of the Opinion of the Supreme Court of the United States, Rendered at the October Term, 1878, in the Case of George Reynolds, Plaintiff in Error, vs The United States, Defendant in Error.

      S.N. 1878 - Some loss along wrapper edges and split along front wrapper edge, two crude repairs on front wrapper, chip from bottom margin corner of last few pages, faint stain along base. Bound into Coverbind protective cover at binding edge. 1878 Soft Cover. 33 pp. Blue printed wrappers. A pro-Mormon review of the ruling from the first freedom of religion case to come before the United States Supreme Court, focusing on the Mormon practices of bigamy and polygamy. George Reynolds, the plaintiff, was secretary to the First Presidency of the LDS Church under Brigham Young. This court case was a response to prosecution attempts under the Morrill Anti-Bigamy Act of 1862. Mormons planned to prove that the act was unconstitutional, but needed a 'test defendant' to bring the matter before the courts; this led to Reynolds being indicted and found guilty in two trials held in lower courts. Ultimately the appeal to the Supreme Court was unsuccessful, and the prison sentence assessed for Reynolds's original conviction held. He was released from prison in 1881, and continued his involvement with the Mormons, publishing a number of related books. Henry Reed, the 'old lawyer' who wrote this review, concludes that the Supreme Court's ruling was unjust, stating that, "it was, in fact, Mormonism and its domestic relations that were on trial; and when the Act of 1862 was passed, the judgments against them was foreordained. The court has done its work. but they have not done justice. They have won a round of applause of a number of fanatical men and silly women, whose fanaticism and silliness so far as lies in their power, they have made the law of the land." Scarce - none in trade, no auction records in last 50 years. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Original Hand-Drawn Topographical Map of the North & Northwestern Area above the Black Hills] with Map of Reconnaissances of Routes in and leading from the Department of the Platte by Captain W. W. Stanton, Corps of Engineers.

      Near the Black Hills, South Dakota 1878 - Manuscript map, colored in outline, 12½ x 15¾ inches. One horizontal, one vertical fold, minor staining, some fold separations. An Important Manuscript Map of the Country Near the Black Hills A highly important work of cartography of the American West, a hand-drawn topographical map of an area immediately north of the Black Hills of South Dakota, drawn from Lieut. Morris C. Foote's survey notes by a cartographer involved in the 1878 Black Hills expedition. The map is referred to in Foote's manuscript journal for 1878. After marching from Fort Laramie, Cheyenne, then to Deadwood, S.D., Foote was ordered to help build telegraph lines in the wilds of South Dakota, north of the Black Hills. He created this topographical map during this time. His manuscript journal entries for Friday, Sept. 13, 1878 and the next day: "Command remained in camp. Warm. I went over and climbed on top of one of the Little Missouri buttes.for a very extended view took directions of prominent points. Marched down the Belle Fourche about 17 miles hard work on topog. on account of pain in my bowels and a general sickness." Both of these areas (Little Missouri and Belle Fourche) feature prominently on the map. Then, Foote writes on September 19: "Had map of scout made from my notes and handed it in to Capt. Johnson." Other prominent landmarks or features labeled on the map include Alum Creek, Oak Creek, Johnson Creek, Camp Davis and Camp Green. A unique and important hand-drawn topographical map made for the U.S. Army in the American West during a critical time in the development of the area. With the manuscript map is a map published in December of 1877, which includes the region depicted in Foote's manuscript. This is a Corps of Engineers' map drawn by R. E. Koehneman under the direction of Captain Stanton. The map is 27 3/4 x 21 1/2" and includes all the Black Hills region from Deadwood to the Colorado border. Written in ink in the top margin is what appears to be "M C. Foot" and in the lower right "Capt. Gerald Russell 3d Cavalry" [Attributes: Soft Cover]

This edition contains a fifth volume covering both Asia and India. The color plates depict indigenous peoples of all locales in their native dress.

        AUTOGRAPH QUOTATION SIGNED and AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED

      7 March 1878, Boston - On a (6-7/8" x 9") piece of paper the author has written the following seven-line stanza from one of his best known poems "The Chambered Nautilus": "Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul,/As the swift seasons roll!/Leave thy low-vaulted past!/Let each new temple, nobler than the last,/Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast,/Till thou at length art free,/Leaving thine outgrown shell by life’s unresting sea!" Below this he has SIGNED "Oliver Wendell Holmes/Boston, March 10th 1888." On the verso of the paper (though not on the exact reverse side of the poem, so that one could cut the paper and have two separate autographed pieces), is a brief AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED by Holmes to a Miss Wright: "It gives one pleasure to comply with our slight request. Please turn this leaf. Very truly yours OW Holmes. Boston, March 10th 1888." The nautilus is a sea creature that lives inside a spiral shell. As it grows, it makes new, larger chambers of its shell in which to live, closing off the old chambers and gradually forming a spiral. Holmes uses the nautilus as a metaphor for the human soul, emphasizing the idea that humans expand their horizons until they achieve the spiritual freedom of heaven or the afterlife. One of the most enduring nature poems of the nineteenth century, "The Chambered Nautilus" was first published in the periodical THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY and then in book form in Holmes's 1858 classic THE AUTOCRAT OF THE BREAKFAST TABLE. Normal light creases. A Fine example from this noted author and doctor [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Folding into brown cloth covers, upper cover with border blocked in black and titled 'Thompson & West's / Pocket Map / of California / and part of / Nevada. / 120 Sutter Street, / San Francisco, Cal. / 1878' in black, lower cover with border blocked in blind, letterpress advertisements on front pastedown. An extremely rare pocket map of California and Nevada, an exceptional example in near mint condition This excellent map depicts the states of California and Nevada, following a generation of explosive growth. California had entered the Union in 1850, following the Gold Rush, and Nevada became a state in 1861 following the discovery of the Comstock Lode, America's greatest silver find. This region of the country had attracted hundreds of thousands of settlers, not only from the east coast, but from places as far away as Europe and China. The numerous counties that had been organized in each state, were carefully painted in resplendent colours. The thriving cities of San Francisco, Sacramento and San Diego in California; and Carson and Virginia City in Nevada stand out on the map. The Pacific Central Railway, which connected San Francisco to the eastern seaboard from 1869, is one of the most important features of the map. The map is corrected up to August, 1876, according to the integral dedicatory text. The advertisements that adorn the front paste-down are for W.E. Barnard & Co., real estate brokers of Oakland, and for 'official maps in atlas form of Alameda, Solano, Sonoma, and Santa Clara Counties, Cal.' published by Thompson & West. This map is both an attractive collector's piece and a fascinating historical document. Not in Rumsey; or Phillips Maps of America.

        FINAL DETERMINATION OF THE JOULE: "New Determination of the Mechanical Equivalent of Heat" (Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Vol. 169 for the Year 1878, pp. 365-383)

      Royal Society of London 1878-1879, London - James Prescott Joule (1818-1889) presents the "last experimental research of any magnitude that Joule undertook" and includes the results of Joule's final experiments by the direct method of friction. In this paper, Joule presents his final measurement of the mechanical equivalent of heat. It is well worth noting that Joule chose the number '772.55' as an inscription for his gravestone. '772.55' is Joule's climacteric measurement of the mechanical equivalent of heat - the one arrived at in this paper. Also see our #27506 for Joule's earlier paper, "On the Mechanical Equivalent of Heat" (pp. 61-82) Also contains William Crooke's "The Bakerian Lecture: On Repulsion Resulting from Radiation. Part V" (pp. 243-318); see also our #27563, "On Attraction and Repulsion Resulting from Radiation" (pp. 501-527). iv, [2], v, [2], [1]-826 pp. 4to.

        The Naval History of Great Britain,

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1878. From the Declaration of War by France in 1793, to the Accession of George IV. A New Edition, with Additions and Notes. 6 volumes, octavo (182 × 119 mm). Contemporary blue half calf, blue morocco-grained cloth sides, raised bands, titles and anchor devices to compartments gilt, marbled edges and endpapers. Each volume with portrait frontispiece, diagrams and tables to the text, folding annual abstracts at the end of each. Spines slightly darkened, Later edition of James's Naval History, first published 1822-4. A "monument of accuracy - it has stood the test of time and remains the best account of the naval side of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars" (Kemp, The Oxford Companion to Ships and the Sea, p. 425). Working under the motto "Verité sans Peur", James set himself standards of inclusiveness and accuracy extraordinary for the 19th century. His aim was to compile "... an exact account of every operation of naval war during the period named. He consulted not only published works, especially the official narratives, both British and French, but also the logs of the ships, and, whenever possible, the participants themselves" (ODNB). Successively mined by Forester and O'Brian for incident and colour, this well-written history is not only essential reference for the period, but makes excellent reading.

        Vocabulum; Or, The Rogue's Lexicon. Compiled From Most Authentic...

      1878. The Rogue's Lexicon Matsell, George W. [1811-1877], Compiler. Vocabulum; Or, The Rogue's Lexicon. Compiled From the Most Authentic Sources. New York: Published by George W. Matsell & Co., [1878]. vi, 7-130, 4 pp. Portrait frontispiece. Three woodcut plates. Octavo (7" x 4-3/4"). Recent quarter morocco over cloth, raised bands, gilt title and gilt ornaments to spine. Some toning to text, internally clean. A well-preserved copy in a handsome binding. * First published in 1859, this the only other printing, which is enhanced by the addition of a portrait frontispiece of Matsell and three full-page woodcut plates, one depicting a prison, two depicting confidance men in action. As New York City's chief of police and an owner of the National Police Gazette, Matsell had an abiding interest in criminal speechways. Although Matsell compiled this dictionary for his colleagues in law enforcement, he recognized its value to the linguist. As he notes in the preface, criminal terms were beginning to enter general usage and appeared regularly in newspapers, court reports and other publications. Matsell's compilation includes such entries as "acorn" (a gallows), "hemp the flat" (choke a fool), "rumbo" (a prison) and "tyburn blossom" (a young thief). The appendix contains samples of criminal speech and writing (with translations) and the vocabularies of gamblers, billiard players, pugilists and stock brokers. Published just before the Civil War, this dictionary offers a fascinating glimpse into the American underworld in the first half of the nineteenth century. OCLC locates 6 copies worldwide of this printing, none in law libraries.

        APPENDED EDITION. EPITOME OF THE ANCIENT HISTORY OF JAPAN, INCLUDING A GUIDE BOO

      Nagasaki 1878, Rising Sun Office. Brown brocade cloth, very. good, 165p., 15 copper engraved illustrations, 11 x 14.5 cm.. FIRST AND ONLY VERY RARE AND SMALL EDITION. EARLY WRITER ON JEWS IN CHINA, COREA AND EAST ASIA: The author wrote several titles concerning the Jews and their relationship to East Asian & Southeast Asian peoples. Inquire with us for other titles in this genre. This work very similar in content to the alternate title from 1878 which has a 12 more pages that are not found in this edition. The illustrations remain the same, the one and only difference being the 12 pages, size remains identical, but this edition has the cover title, the other not. The GUIDE BOOK section is also not found in this edition. * BINDING: The book was bound in both green cloth and brown brocade cloth. The green cover has "JAPAN AND THE LOST TRIVES OF ISREAL BY N. MCLEOD" gold stamped on the cover, obviously this is NOT the title of the book though wrongly so imprinted. The title page of both copies are identical as are the contents. The size varies, but only in the amount of or lack of margin area. * ILLUSTRATIONS: The book was illustrated with copper etchings, a very unusual and rare technique of the time. * DEDICATION: Dedicated to the Rev. William Mackenzie. The author spent much time in researching & observing the Japanese to provide a description of their early origins from the Jewish people. Covering the Jewish race or Samurai of Jimu Tenno, with proofs of their identity with lost Israel and Shinto faith. Final battle of Gog & Magog. Saga insurrection, Japanese code of morals for women, Christianity, pedigree of the Princes of the Jin Dia or Jewish Race. Jin Dai or ancient characters of Nineveh and Babylon. Sanjo or, no Jinji or sacred emblems of foreign rule. Grave of the Emperors, Princes, Daimyos & Samurai. With an Abridged Guide book of Japan. *** THE AUTHOR'S IDEA OF RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN JEWS, COREANS, JAPANESE, MALAYANS, FORMOSANS &c: An extremely unusual work, covering what the author felt was the deep background of the Japanese & Coreans as coming from the ancient Jews. The writer has supported his theory with substantial research work and lucid logic! But got strange results ! . How Ainu's and Malay are diminutive race of Jews. Formosan War, agriculture and minerals, et al. . It was his firm belief, the he had discovered part of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel in Koreans and the Japanese...."at intervals resuming business to provide the needful for this purpose..." *** AUTHOR'S BACKGROUND: Mr. N. McLeod was a Scotsman who went to Japan in the 1870's as a bookkeeper at the Scottish hong of Findlay Richardson & Co., Ltd. They went bankrupt then the author started a business of his own in Kobe & Osaka, living in the Osaka Foreign Concession. He became a missionary and abandoned his commercial enterprise for "travel and researches." * LIFE AS A MISSIONARY IN JAPAN: He became a preacher and pamphleteer, sparing neither his body, his purse, nor his mind, in the presentation of "proof" that the Koreans were descended from Japhet and the Japanese from the last king of Isreal. To that end he spent his entire savings on research and the publication of several books on these subjects. * FASCINATING BOOK: His books reflect in some cases a single sentences of 606 words, unorthodox spelling and queer punctuation, with strange notions of English grammar. Some works also contain an autobiographical account of the trials and tribulations which beset him in the pursuit of a literary career, and declarations of his own faith and beliefs in his bizarre theory. * In one of his works, he declared:"...this present edition which is only a small one, may meet with as good and ready a sale as it predecessors...." * The book is fascinating, with hardly a dull page, the lost tribes of Israel keep turning up in the most unexpected places. This title has been described as McLeod's "MAGNUM OPUS by Williams [see below for citation]. * All titles by McLeod are quite scared and now rare. The have been printed in a small number and are not common nor often found on the market for sale. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: * H.S. Williams: FOREIGNERS IN MIKADO LAND.

      Salt Lake City, 1878. 20th-century cloth, gilt leather labels. Light to moderate wear and soiling, a few volumes with stained cloth, chipped labels. Institutional stamps on titlepages. Some light soiling and dampstaining. Good. A remarkable and nearly complete run of the early session laws of the Utah Territory, encompassing a number of early Salt Lake City imprints. The volume for the first session is, of course, the first collection of Utah Territory laws. It includes interesting statutes related to ranching, for example concerning brand books and enclosures. The acts of the fourth session did not appear separately, but is found only in the 1855 Acts, published in Great Salt Lake City by Joseph Cain, 1855, and present in this run. These volumes contain a wealth of information on Brigham Young and other Mormon pioneers, the incorporation of cities and counties, the building of roads, the establishment of industry, and all aspects of Utah life of the period. The laws encompass the founding of the territory, the Mormon War, the Civil War period, and the coming of the transcontinental railroad in 1869.
