        Autograph Letter Signed ("U.S. Grant"), to New Hampshire Governor Nathaniel Head, declining an invitation to visit

      New York 1880 - 2 pages. 8vo. Former President Grant writes to Republican Governor Natt Head (1828-1883) of New Hampshire, declining an invitation to visit Concord, citing speaking engagements during the final weeks of the 1880 Presidential campaign:"You may possibly have seen from the papers that I do not visit Vermont as expected; at least for the present. This will prevent my accepting your kind invitation to visit Concord. At the earnest invitation of our friends here I have committed to visit some of the cities in the interior of this state, when political meetings are to be held next week. If I can do any good for the cause I want to do it, though I do not appreciate my services in a political way as some of my friends seem to."Having unsuccesfully sought the nomination for what would have been an unprecedented third presidential term, Grant was stumping instead for Republican candidate James A. Garfield. (The day after this letter is dated, Grant presided over Republican rallies at Stamford, Connecticut and Union City, New Jersey.) Grant's efforts are considered to have been crucial, as Garfield narrowly won New York and ultimately the general election. In turn, Garfield solicited Grant's advice on cabinet members and policy issues upon taking office. Bifolium. Splitting at folds, some blearing to ink of signature. With original envelope

        Sunshine And Storm In The East, or Cruises to Cyprus and Constantinople.

      London, Longmans, Green & Co.,1880. 8vo. Original pictorial cloth in red, brown and gold, designed and signed in the plate by Gustave Doré, bound by Simson and Renshaw; pp. xx, [2], 448, wood-engraved vignette on title, with wood-engraved frontispiece, eight wood-engraved plates (all with tissue guards) and over 100 wood-engravings in the text, colour-printed folding maps at either end of the volume; extremities minimally rubbed, apart from light ofsetting from endpapers, as usual, a very good copy. First edition of an account of a classic private luxury cruise of the Mediterranean with a strong focus on the Levant and illustrations of city- and landscapes, street scenes, as well as regional jewellery, written by one of the most prominent women travellers of the Victorian period, Anna "Annie" Brassey (née Allnutt), Baroness Brassey (1839-1887), who had her household and family on board of the Sunbeam and keenly observed societies and cities, collected artifacts and took photos, a large portion of which are now owned by the Huntington Library. 'Mrs. Brassey has presented us with her magnificent work, called, Sunshine and Storm in the East Mrs. Brassey has, to - use the reviewer's phrase, already "made her mark " in literature; at all events, her Voyage in the Sunbeam, has been read by thousands of people, and has received the kindly notice of most of the critics of the Press, ourselves included. But it would seem that Mrs. Brassey has been moved to rival, if not to surpass, her first success. In what measure she has realised this purpose, we hope to show. It is impossible, in the first place, to be silent regarding the extraordinary merits of the binding, - of the pictorial design, that is [...] signed by the hand of no less eminent an artist than M. Gustave Doré. Upon a warm, grey background of sea and sky, picked out with black cloud and wave-lines and gold sun-rays, we have a superb scarlet scroll, which is being unrolled at both ends by two groups of fairy-like beings in gossamer attire, who seem partly to float upon the surface of the ocean, partly to hover above it. On the back of the book, in the foreground, is a small vessel, heeling over under the stress of the gale. What does all this mean? Mrs. Brassey, in her preface, is so obliging as to inform us. The nymphs of Ocean, we are told, flattered by the attention already shown them by the Sunbeam, in her voyage round the world, are unfolding before the vessel's path a long scroll, on which are depicted all the kingdoms of the earth, and the glory of them, hoping thereby to induce Mrs. Brassey to continue her triumphal career. It is surely an encouraging sign to see Art applied to such worthy ends as this. We may now look forward to deriving a twofold enjoyment from our libraries. If, for any cause, the interior of a book fails to please us, we have but to close it, and straightaway our eyes will be captivated by the charms of the outside. Our book-shelves must now be arranged upon a new plan, enabling us to see the whole of the bindings of the volumes at once, instead of only the backs, as heretofore. Or perhaps the covers can be so con trived as to come off, and then, by framing them and hanging them on the walls, we shall be decorating our rooms with one hand, so to say, while we instruct our minds with the other. Ultimately, books may come to be bought and sold on the strength of their exteriors only, and literature will assume the position of a vehicle for the dissemination of bindings. But, in short, there is no telling where this novel idea of Mrs. Brassey and of M. Gustave Doré may land us. Meanwhile, they deserve all the credit they are likely to receive for their initiation of so suggestive a reform' eulogized the book reviewer of the Spectator (January 3, 1880, p. 27f.) - and on he went about the merits of the text, illustrations and maps for several long sentences. - The most beautiful copy of this increasingly scarce title we had in years.

        Two Boys go Sailing. Illustrated by Brigid Ganly.

      First Edition. 8. Frontispiece - Illustration, VIII, 246 pages with a (partly fictitious) map of Roaringwater Bay on the pastedown and endpaper and 12 illustrations throughout the book. Original, illustrated Hardcover. Excellent condition of this scarce book with only minor signs of external wear to the binding. This is one of the rarest publications on West Cork, Baltimore and Roaringwater Bay. Edward Conor Marshall O'Brien (3 November 1880 18 April 1952) was an intellectual, Irish aristocrat, republican, nationalist, pioneer in modern maritime theory, owner and captain of one of the first boats to sail under the tri-colour of the Irish Free State, during his circumnavigation in the Saoirse. He was a grandson of the Fenian William Smith O'Brien. Reputedly this was the first small boat to sail around Cape Horn. This is slightly unfair to Joshua Slocum, the Bostonian, who was the first single-handed yachtsman to successfully pass this way (in 1895) although in the end, extreme weather forced him to use some of the inshore routes between the channels and islands and it is believed he may not have actually passed outside the Horn proper. Given the scale of Slocum's achievement it might be considered unfair to deprive him of the honour! Although it was nearly 30 years later, a strict definition of "the first small boat to sail around outside Cape Horn" could indeed cover the 42-foot (13 m) yacht Saoirse, sailed by Conor O'Brien with three hands, who rounded it during a circumnavigation of the world between 1923 and 1925 It was the first boat flying the Irish tri-colour to enter many of the world's ports and harbours. He was a ship builder/designer (notable boats include the Saoirse and AK Ilen ), gun runner for the Irish Volunteers during the war of independence in Ireland, captain of a ship sailing in the merchant navy during WWII.

        Aida. Grand opéra en quatre actes. Paroles françaises de MM. Du Locle & Nuitter.

      Paris, Léon Escudier, [1880]. - Large 8vo. Title page, (1) f. dramatis personae and table of contents, 307 pp., with 6 additional pp. bound after p. 124. Plate number 3603. Contemporary half morocco with giltstamped spine title. Marbled endpapers. First French edition: a precious copy signed by the composer during the first performance in French. The signature "G. Verdi" is in the upper right corner of the table of contents beneath the stamp "Souvenir of 22 March 1880". Verdi undoubtedly offered his closest collaborators copies of the score on the occasion of the French staging of the opera, directed by the composer himself at the Palais Garnier in the presence of the entire Parisian world of art, literature, finance, and government. - "Aida" was composed for the inauguration celebration of the Suez Canal, based on a libretto by Antonio Ghislanzoni, and was first staged at the Cairo Opera House (in Italian) on Christmas Eve, 1871. The editorial history of the score is a complex one: the work was first published in Italian by Ricordi in 1872 and then reissued the same year in France (again in Italian) by Léon Escudier, who immediately produced several adaptations and instrumental or vocal arrangements (in French). The French première (in Italian) took place in 1876. On the occasion of the performance in 1880, Verdi gave more prominence to the ballet parts, and Escudier published six pages of additional music, printed and numbered separately and inserted between pages 124 and 125 of the original score. With this addition, also present in this copy, "Aida" reached its definitive form. - First and last pages somewhat foxed, extremeties slightly rubbed, otherwise in fine condition. From the collection of Pierre Bergé with his bookplate on the front pastedown. Hopkinson, A Bibliography of the Works of Giuseppe Verdi (New York 1978) II, no 62 B (d).

        Carta Geologica del versante settentrionale dell'Appennino compreso fra i fiumi Montone e Foglia

      1880. Carta geologica, in due fogli giuntati ed intelati, raffigurante parte del territorio romagnolo compreso tra i fiumi Montone e Foglia. La sua realizzazione, che durò quasi un ventennio, si deve al Comm. Giuseppe Scarabelli Gommi Flamini, il quale il 28 settembre del 1863 ricevette dal Consiglio Provinciale di Forlì l'incarico per la stesura di una carta geologica da utilizzarsi quale base per la stesura di una monografia economica, statistica ed amministrativa della provincia. Con lettera datata 20 aprile 1865 la Regia Prefettura di Forlì commissiona la realizzazione della stessa a Scarabelli e Giovanni Capellini. Nel maggio del 1868 quest'ultimo dovette rinunciare all'incarico per motivi famigliari. Venne sostituito nei lavori di rilievo da Cesare d'Ancona. AL 29 settembre 1868 il disegno era terminato e nel 1873 la carta era pronta per passare alla fase di incisione e finalmente nel 1878 la carta era pronta per essere data alla stampe. Sia durante i lavori di realizzazione della stessa che a lavori terminati la carta venne esposta in diverse occasioni ottenendo numerosi riconoscimenti: Esposizione agricola industriale di Bologna del 1869, Esposizione agraria industriale e di Belle Arti di Forlì del 1871, Esposizione geografica Internazionale di Parigi del 1875, Esposizione universale di Parigi del 1878. La carta fu rilevata in luogo alla scala di 1:50000 e qui ridotta alla scala di 1:100000. Alcuni segni del tempo, ma complessivamente buon esemplare di questo monumento cartografico.

Justly celebrated covers of blue cloth stamped in gilt with art nouveau rendering (by Frederic J. Shields) of a sketch from Blake's manuscript notebook of two figures reclining in an open poppy petal beneath a canopy of belladonna petals under a spangled night sky. The spine reproduces in gilt a figure from Blake's "Night Thoughts." Binder's ticket (Burn & Co.) present. Pages uncut. This copy extremely well-preserved, despite library provenance and a few expert repairs. Early owner's ink stamp on front blank.

        Report and Journal of Examination of the Country North-East of Eucla

      [Adelaide, Government Printer], 1880. Foolscap folio, 9 pages plus a large folding map ('Plan shewing Country north east of Eucla examined by Mr James W. Jones with the view to decide upon boring operations for water', 555 x 705 mm). Drop-title, sewn as issued; bottom corner of the front page slightly dusty; small blank corner piece of the map slightly creased; an excellent copy. The map embraces the entire extent of the Nullarbor Plain within South Australia covering 'an area of 16,500 square miles ... [with] a complete description of the country from the coast to the route taken by Mr Ernest Giles on his exploration trip to Perth'. It also includes 'Professor Tate's track shewn in red' (presumably relating to Ralph Tate's travels there resulting in his lengthy paper, 'The Natural History of the Country around the Head of the Great Australian Bight' in the Transactions ... of the Philosophical Society of Adelaide, South Australia for 1878-9: see McLaren 15803). The journal 'gives a minutely detailed description of the country passed over ... It will be seen that this hitherto comparatively unexplored country has been thoroughly examined. I found that in many important particulars the surmises in previous reports respecting this country were not borne out'. No less interesting is the account of the discovery of the waggon and last campsite of Fairie and Woolley, who died of thirst north of Eucla two years earlier. South Australian Parliamentary Paper Number 191 of 1880; the quantity printed is not stated, but around 700 copies was usual (and this item is rarely encountered on the open market). McLaren 10540.

        Leaves from a Journal being a Record of the Visit of the Emperor and Empress of the French to the Queen and of a Visit of the queen and H.R.H. The Prince Consort to the Emperor of the French.

      London: Printed Strictly for Private Circulation,, 1880. Octavo. Original blue sand-grained cloth over bevelled boards, title gilt to the spine, and to the upper board, gilt double fillet panel to both boards, black surface-paper endpapers. A little rubbed, corners bumped, head and tail of spine crumpled, front board creased with consequent crack to the front pastedown, pale toning else very good. Small quantity of relevant clippings loosely inserted. First edition, extremely uncommon, Copac lists Oxford University only, and OCLC locates a single copy at the Australian National University. This copy inscribed by Victoria on the half-title; "To The Earl Cowley, In recollection of happy past days, from Victoria R.I., Nov. 21 1881". The Crimean War had "transformed Napoleon III into Britain's closest ally. An imperial visit to Britain in May 1855 convinced Victoria of the emperor's qualities; Empress Eugénie too met with her approbation, for Victoria admired beauty in other women. Victoria paid a reciprocal visit in August to her ally in Paris, where she was 'delighted, enchanted, amused and interested, and think I never saw anything more beautiful and gay than Paris', and paid a visit of respect to the tomb of the first Napoleon. The visit sealed the alliance …" (ODNB). The recipient, Henry Richard Charles Wellesley (1804-84), became ambassador to France in 1852, and was instrumental in fostering Anglo-French relations during the period; "Cowley was close to Napoleon by the time the Crimean War broke out. 'I am not generally of a confiding character in regard to foreigners', he wrote a little later, 'but there is something about that man that always imbues me with a feeling of his sincerity'". A superb association copy of a genuinely scarce book.

        Louisa May Alcott Manuscript Leaf.

      - Autograph manuscript page from Louisa May Alcott's Jack and Jill, Chapter VIII, page 129. One page. The manuscript page reads, "up no capers with that child! The idea of a hot bath in the middle of the day, and him full of dinner, and croupy into the bargain! Wet a corner of a towel at the kettle-spout and polish him off if you like, but you won't risk his life in no bath-tubs this cold day.' Miss Bat's word was law in some things, so Molly had to submit, and took Boo away, saying, loftily, as she left the room, 'I shall ask father, and do it tonight, for I will not have my brother look like a pig.' 'My patience! How the Siamese do leave their things around,'she exclaimed [crossed out a moment after'] as she surveyed her room after making up the fire and polishing off Boo. 'I'll put things in order, and then mend up my rags, if I can find my thimble. Now, let me see,' and she went to exploring her closet, bureau, and table, finding such disorder everywhere that her courage nearly gave out. She had clothes enough, but all needed care; even her best dress had two buttons off, and her drawers were a perfect chaos of soiled ruffles, off gloves, old ribbons, boot lacings, and bits of paper. 'Oh, my heart, what a muddle! Mrs. Minot wouldn't think much of me if she could see that,' said Molly, recalling [crossed out 'that Mrs.'] how that lady once said she could judge a good deal of a little girl's character & habits by a peep at her top drawer, & went on to guess how each of the schoolmates kept hers, with great success." The final printing reads slightly differently. Matted and framed opposite a photograph of Alcott. The entire piece measures 17.5 inches by 20 inches. Manuscript pages from Alcott seldom enter the market. Jack and Jill: A Village Story was originally published in 1880. The story takes place in a small New England town after the Civil War where Jack Minot and Janey Pecq are best friends and next door neighbors. Always seen together, Janey gets the nickname of Jill, to mimic the old rhyme. The two go up a hill one winter day, and then suffer a terrible accident. Seriously injured in a sledding accident, they recover from their physical injuries, while learning life lessons along with their many friends. They are helped along their journey to recovery by various activities created by their mothers. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
