        NAKATOMI NO KAMATARI, OE NO OJI AND IRUKA DAIJIN. FROM THE SERIES DAI NIPPON MEI

      [Tokyo] 1879, Funazu. Single Oban sheet size 23 x 35 cm.,. print size 0.5 x 32 cm., very good, strong impression, fine. registry, rebacked on Japanese tissue, small dark spot on. the center column else clean. S C A R C E. THE THREE SAMURAI BATTLE FOR THEIR LIVES In Yoshitoshi's unmistakable action style, this well crafted and superbly composed work shows the three protagonists as they are consumed with a sword fight,one falls to the ground as he is about to be swiftly butchered with a Wakizashi or sword byi Nakatomi. The shock & fear on Oji's face is clear as the last seconds of his life are lost while Nakatomi swings his sword in a life-taking circular motion while displaying an ever so slight smile as he begins to take out his sworn enemy. See E.van den Inge et al: BEAUTY & VIOLENCE p. 116 for series details & background on Yoshitoshi. Illus- trated in Divine Dementia as no. 61. This work uses the most difficult technique of "gauffrage" or block printing without the use of color on the lower garment of Nakatomi, done in a subtle pattern. Some of Yoshitoshi's violent Sam- Samurai prints were supressed and some even banned by the Meiji govenment as "too nationalistic." Yoshitoshi was the leader and most talented painter of the period who depicted the Japanese warrior or Budhido spirit. His works reflect a true Japanese military spirit.

        Lettre autographe signée (10 septembre 1942)

      - GIRAUD Henri (1879-1949). Général français. Président du Comité Français de Libération nationale, grand rival du général de Gaulle pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Lettre autographe signée, 10 septembre 1942, au général Clément-Grandcourt, 2 pages in-8. « Ce dont je suis sûr, c’est que l’Allemagne ne peut plus gagner la guerre » « Mon Général, je ne saurai vous dire combien j’ai été touché par votre lettre. J’ajoute qu’elle ne m’étonne nullement d’un homme tel que vous. Je vous en remercie très vivement. Jusqu’à présent, je n’ai pas envisagé pareille hypothèse, mais il est certain qu’elle peut se présenter, et, dans ce cas, j’accepte d’enthousiasme votre offre ( ) Ce dont je suis sûr, c’est que l’Allemagne ne peut plus gagner la guerre, et qu’il faut que la France tienne le coup jusqu’à l’échéance inéluctable où elle aura à se décider. Cette heure-là sonnera à partir de 1943, je ne sais pas exactement à quelle date. Le prochain hiver nous apportera quelques lumières à ce sujet. À ce moment-là, tous ceux pensant français auront leur mot à dire et leur rôle à jouer : vous êtes de ceux-là ( ) H. Giraud ». Cette lettre est écrite très peu de temps avant que Henri Giraud quitte la France pour l’Afrique du Nord (7 novembre 1942). Après avoir écarté de Gaulle (conséquence de son échec à la bataille de Dakar en septembre 1940), les forces alliées s’était rapprochées de Giraud afin de fédérer les forces militaires françaises libres. Giraud répondit favorablement aux messages de Roosevelt qui l’invitait à participer à la libération de la France. Malgré son absence lors de l’Opération Torch, Giraud gagna Alger. Il participera à la conférence de Casablanca en 1943 et co-présidera avec de Gaulle le Comité Français de la Libération Nationale avant de s’effacer devant ce dernier qui bénéficiait de meilleurs appuis politiques au sein de la Résistance.

        La loi périodique des éléments chimiques

      1879 - (2), 691 à 738 pp., 889 à 908 Paris, Quesneville, 1879, in-8, (2), 691 à 738 pp, 889 à 908 pp, demi-maroquin rouge, dos à nerfs orné (reliure de l'époque), Première édition de la traduction française de ce texte capital dans l'histoire des sciences, extraite du "Moniteur scientifique, journal des sciences pures et appliquées", tome XXI de la collection, année 1879, troisième série, Tome IX. On trouve en tête une très importante lettre de Mendeleïev à Quesneville, en édition originale ; Mendeleïev analyse sa théorie à la lumière des recherches les plus récentes. Il y écrit notamment : "La loi périodique a donné la première possibilité de prédire non-seulement l'existence d'éléments encore inconnus, mais aussi de déterminer les propriétés chimiques et physiques des corps simples encore à découvrir et celles de leurs combinaisons." A la suite a été relié : "La loi périodique des éléments chimiques. Communication faite à la société chimique britannique dans sa séance du 4 juin 1889, consacrée à la mémoire de Faraday". La découverte en 1869, par le chimiste russe Dimitri Mendeleïev, de la loi périodique des éléments chimiques est une avancée majeure dans l'histoire de la classification de ces éléments selon la corrélation de leur masse atomique et de leurs propriétés. Ce texte qui était un mémoire réalisé pour la chaire de chimie de l'université de Saint-Pétersbourg fut traduit du russe en allemand dès 1871. La première traduction en français fut publiée en 1879 dans cette édition du Moniteur scientifique. Bel état. DSB p.293. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [COLLECTION OF MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENTS RELATING TO AMERICAN EFFORTS TO REDUCE NATIONAL DEBT INCURRED DURING THE CIVIL WAR THROUGH SELLING BONDS VIA THE ROTHSCHILD BANK]

      Washington & London, 1879. Light soiling, but overall very neat, clean, and readable. Near fine. An interesting group of letters to Charles Conant, the American Treasury Department official in London charged with overseeing the sale of American bonds in the European financial markets, thereby reducing the debt incurred during the Civil War. The national debt skyrocketed during the Civil War and Reconstruction, from about $78 million in 1861 to $2.5 billion in 1871. To alleviate some of the debt the Treasury Department decided to actively sell American bonds in Europe, using the assistance of the Rothschild Bank in London and several prominent New York bankers (including J.P. Morgan), referred to in these letters as "The Syndicate." The centerpiece of this small collection is a group of four manuscript letters (the text written in a secretarial hand) signed by U.S. Treasury Secretary John Sherman to Charles Conant, his agent in London for "refunding the National Debt." Conant (1835-86) was appointed to the Treasury Department in 1865 and rose through the civil service ranks. Beginning in 1870 he was chief of the warrants division, and responsible for completing the monthly debt statement of the United States, and by 1874 he was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury. In 1877, Treasury Secretary John Sherman named Conant the department's funding agent, and placed him in charge of the financial transactions of the government in London in relation to refunding the national debt. Conant spent more than two years in London, overseeing the sale of U.S. bonds in the European financial market, working closely with the Rothschild Bank (one of the envelopes is addressed to Conant c/o N.M. Rothschild & Son). In these letters Sherman writes Conant regarding several aspects of his work. In the earliest letter, dated Feb. 12, 1878, Sherman informs Conant: "...the relation of the Syndicate, as an association, will terminate with this Department in accordance with a personal understanding had after the contract was annulled. If no bonds shall be sold in Europe, of course I shall not be justified in incurring any expense there on account of the Loan, and it will be well for you to make provision for closing your business, unless you are cognizant of some plan or arrangement for continuing the business of funding abroad, of which, I am not advised." Apparently the Treasury Department's agreement with The Syndicate was renewed, as the next letter from Sherman, dated a year later, on Feb. 15, 1879, describes a vigorous selling operation: "The rapid sales of bonds in this country tend to make me solicitous to promote sales in Europe to avoid anything like a drain of coin here in April, May and June. I therefore thought it best to allow the Syndicate to deposit with you any called bonds as collateral, but payment for the four per cent must in every case be made within the ninety days the interest to be adjusted here. Please say to the Messrs. Rothschild that it is desirable to have all called bonds as soon as received by them, and they will be credited with interest to the maturity of the call." A letter from Sherman to Conant of Feb. 28, 1879 describes some of the nuts and bolts of their dealings. Sherman writes (in part): "I transmit to you to-day...ten million dollars ($10,000,000)...for delivery to the contracting parties as required and paid for by them. The bonds are contained in four (4) iron safes, which are addressed to the Hon. John Welch, U.S. Minister London." The final letter from Sherman is dated April 21, 1879, and he informs Conant that a large number of bonds belonging to the Manhattan Savings Institution have been stolen, and instructs Conant of the specific bonds that he should decline to receive, totaling some $42,000. The final three letters to Conant are of a more less official nature and are from a variety of correspondents, including one from John Biddulph Martin, who would later marry the famed feminist, Victoria Woodhull. Martin asks Conant if he can give him "the totals of the U.S. interest-bearing debt from 1860-78, which I do not find in any work which I have consulted, but which you may be able to refer to readily." An interesting group of letters shedding light on a little-known aspect of post-Civil War American debt financing.

        La Nouvelle Atala; ou, La Fille de l'Esprit: LÈgende Indienne par Chahta-Ima (De La Louisiane)

      Nouvelle OrlÈans: Imprimerie du Propagatetr [sic] Catholique, 1879 - Small 8vo, original printed blue wrappers, 139 pages. ? A novella in French by Adrien Emmanuel Rouquette (1813-1887) about an idealized Louisiana Indian maiden. At the conclusion is an unsigned review of the work by the young assistant editor of the New Orleans Item, Lafcadio Hearn - his first appearance in a book, preceding his first book (a translation of Gautier's Cleopatra's Nights) by three years. Rouquette was a poet and priest from New Orleans who spent much of his time living in the countryside with the Choctaw Indians (who named him "Chahta-Ima"), due in part to local disapproval of his iconoclastic and anti-slavery views. Hearn was taken with Rouquette and praises his novella in the review: "We have before us the advance pages of a romance which we do not hesitate to term the most idyllic work in the literature of Louisiana." See the DAB for Rouquette. Wrappers a little worn and creased; very good copy. BAL 7910; OCLC records four copies (BL, two in France and UC Berkeley) [Attributes: Soft Cover]
