He participated in most of the battles and campaigns of the Army of the Potomac, from Manassas, to Antietam, the Wilderness, and the investment of Petersburg. McKibbin was brevetted brigadier general in March, 1865, but never won permanent promotion to that rank; he continued to serve in the army until 1875 when he retired. A bright and striking portrait.

        Etude sur le naturalisme].

      1880 ca 1880 - Manuscrit autographe de 2 feuillets in-4 (31 x 20 cm). Introduction manuscrite à une étude sur le naturalisme par le romancier, poète, auteur dramatique et critique littéraire Henry Céard (1851-1924), l'un des membres du groupe de Médan qui réunissait autour d'Emile Zola, Guy de Maupassant, J.-K. Huysmans, Léon Hennique et Paul Alexis. « A côté d'une littérature d'imagination, il y a eu à toute époque une littérature d'observation, basée sur la science. Quand Charcot écrivit son livre sur la névrose, il retrouva dans les portails de cathédrales les mêmes (instructions) que celles qu'il observait quotidiennement à la Salpêtrière, cette recherche de la vérité médicale qui tourmentait les sculpteurs, ce souci de l'anatomie pathologique dont les (mutilés) donnaient des preuves, quand on sait chercher, on le rencontre aussi en littérature. Il va parallèlement avec le besoin de l'imagination et la cause. Anatomiste, physiologiste, je vous retrouve partout (écrit) Ste. Beuve sur Flaubert, à la fin de son étude sur Mme Bovary. Ceci n'est pas seulement un cri contemporain (mais) à toute époque de l'histoire de la littérature, nous trouvons les écrivains préoccupés d'étude scientifique, même (Boileau) qui, dans son Art Poetique conseillait à ses élèves de connaître l'anatomie. Beaucoup même ne se contentent pas d'avoir le goût platonique. Beaucoup les ont pratiquées. Avant de tenir la plume, certains même se sont servis du scalpel. Le scalpel abandonné, la méthode d'analyse est demeurée dans leur esprit, et c'est l'histoire de ces intelligences travaillées par le désir de la vérité biologique et l'amour des lettres que nous allons essayer d'écrire à travers les âges. Le mot de Sainte-Beuve - Flaubert - La carte de Flaubert - Zola le Roman Experimental - la doctrine - les (vieux) - Zola scientifique de raisonnement plutôt que scientifique d'étude - Imitation de la Comédie Humaine de Balzac dédiée à Geoffroy St. Hilaire. L'dée première d'une littérature basée sur la science avant (déjà) est exprimée par Rétif de La Bretonne, première épreuve de Balzac. A côté des littérateurs scientifiques d'instinct, il ya les littérateurs qui ont fait des études médicales. Insigner le double courant de ceux qui font de la littérature scientifique sans études spéciales et de ceux qui sont renseignés ». [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Album de Pernambuco.

      Pernambuco: F. H. Carls,, 1880. Landscape quarto (300 x 420 mm). Original green cloth, title gilt to the front board within a broad black stylised floral panel between two single gilt ruled panels, the black panel repeated on the lower board, edges lightly marbled, floral-pattered endpapers in sepia, the title in German neatly inked in purple in a contemporary hand to the first blank, small bookbinder's ticket of Wilhelm Bitz, Basel, to the lower fore-corner of the front pastedown, dated August 1885 in the same hand. High-finish pictorial chromolithographic calendar for 1880 with Carls' imprint as title page, and 36 coloured lithographic plates. Very light shelf-wear, some marginal browning to the plates, occasional scatter of spotting, overall very good indeed. A wonderfully-preserved copy of this superb visual record of Brazil in the late nineteenth century: "The colourful and airy rendering contributes much to the appeal of this extensive series of images that forms one of the most comprehensive visual reports carried out on any Brazilian city in the period" (Correa do Lago). The album was first issued in 1873 under the title Album de Pernambuco e seus Arrabaldes [Album of Pernambuco and its Environs] with fifty plates, it was subsequently reissued with varying numbers of plates, some copies having as few as 15 to 20, and with the composition rarely repeating. Carls was a German graphic artist, designer, and photographer who joined the wave of German immigration to Brazil, settling in Recife in 1859, and establishing there one of the first lithographic presses in Pernambuco, Casa Litographica. An enterprising and innovative printer he took on a wide range of work, bringing the potential of high quality lithographic printing to advertising material, diplomas, stock certificates, letterheads, and also maps, being the publisher of José Tibúrcio Pereira Magalhães' Cidade do Recife e seus Arrabaldes [the City of Recife and its Environs] in 1870. But it is for the sequence of plates that constitute the present work that he is best known, they comprise an inclusive collection of impressive views of of the region: the public buildings - provincial assembly, presidential palace, the Hospital Pedro II - commercial streets - rua do Imperador, rua 1o de Março - grand private homes - the mansion of Dr. Augusto Frederico de Oliveira, which now houses the state museum, and the seat of the Portguese merchant João José Rodrigues Mendes, Barão Rodrigues Mendes, now the headquarters of the Pernambuco Academy of Letters - theatres, churches - mother churches of San Antonio and Boa Vista - shipping in the harbour, markets, and landscapes of the outlying villages and estates, all teeming with life, showing the signs of the accelerating modernisation of Brazil following independence, "a significant iconographic series for the visual memory of of the country, depicting scenes of everyday life, customs and landscapes" (Silva, p.1567). A collaboration with German-born artist Louis Adam Cornell Krauss, who arrived in Recife in 1877, it has been suggested that the plates incorporate, uncredited, the work of pioneering Brazilian photographers such as João Ferreira Vilela, Alfredo Ducasble, Guilherme Gaensly (Wilhelm Gänsli) and Augusto Stahl. Certainly a number of the views do exhibit a sharpness of detail that hints at the use of photographic reference, and some do bear a close resemblance to images produced by these Brazilian pioneers, for example the view of Recife from the observatory of the Naval Arsenal is very similar to Gaensly's framing of the same subject, and the plate of the Sete de Septembro bridge bears comparison with Vilela's views. When the Pernambucan organising committee for the Berlin South American exhibition of 1866 included one of Carls' albums, they did so in the belief that this would present the German public with an "an idea of the beauty of our city".

Charles Wallace Chute (1846-1923) and Thomas Brooks were American photographers who began their photography business in Montevideo in 1868. They operated studios both in Uruguay and in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and according to John Hannavy's "Encyclopedia of 19th Century Photography," [Routledge: 2013] were famous for the quality of their portraits. They also published views of various cities in Latin America, and branched out to establish studios in Rio de Janeiro, Havana and New York by the turn of the century.No listings found on OCLC.

      New York: Dick & Fitzgerald, 1880. Publisher's printed wrappers. Minor shelf wear, upper spine repaired with tape, rear wrapper similarly repaired. Internally very clean. Very good. Jonathan H. Green, "the reformed gambler," is the most important figure in the early literature of American gambling. A famed gambler in his youth, he was known for his talents from Texas to Boston and all points in between. He abandoned gambling just shy of age thirty, and became an advocate against it, seeking to expose the tricks of the trade. Here he offers the inside scoop on games such as Dog Loo (played on the Red River), Whist, Thimbles (or cups), Poker, and Euchre, and on techniques such as palming, lapping, forcing cards, shuffling, cutting, dealing, stocking the pack, and cogging dice. Many other interesting subjects are also discussed, including horse racing, and nailing a card to a wall by a pistol shot. Green adds numerous tales of personal experience, and the illustrations offer the reader the ability to recognize common sleights of hand. Of course, by offering detailed information on how to recognize gamblers' tricks, Green is also providing an advanced tutorial for the aspiring gambler or cheat. The copyright date on the verso of the titlepage appears to read 1850 (the first year of publication), but the worn type throughout, as well as the other titles advertised as available by Dick and Fitzgerald, indicates that this edition was likely produced around 1880. In any edition, a rare and significant work. TOOLE-STOTT 324.

        A Tramp Abroad

      New York: American Publishing Company, 1880. Hardcover. Illustrations by W. Fr. Brown, True Williams, B. Day. 8vo. Original blind-ruled brown cloth with gilt lettering and gilt pictorial stamping. xvi, 631pp, (1p ad). Frontispiece, 328 illustrations. Good plus to very good. Binding a bit edgeworn, with spine faintly sunned and spine gilt rather rubbed; front inner joint starting but expertly, archivally strengthened, thus tight; internally very good, with all pages bright and handsome. A tight and nice first state, first edition, with expected frontispiece caption. This copy bears an unusual presidential connection, hailing from the library of President Ulysses S. Grant's granddaughter, Nellie Grant Cronan (1881-1972), who in turn got it from her father, President Grant's youngest son Jesse R. Grant (1858-1934). Front front flyleaf bears a tiny "Mrs. Jesse R Grant" in black ink at top in what we believe is the handwriting of Elizabeth Chapman Grant (1860-1945) and at top of title page is a large "Mrs J.R. Grant" in blue pencil in what we believe is Jesse R. Grant's handwriting. This remarkable copy comes with a typed letter signed by a direct Grant descendant tipped in outlining this provenance. Unsubstantiated rumors have long circulated that Twain gave one of Grant's children shares in the Webster company to provide financial incentive for a Grant family member to urge the president to choose Webster to publish his autobiography. And while this copy of "A Tramp Abroad" is hardly a smoking gun and doesn't prove this rumor true, it's intriguing to see a Twain title from the library of one of the president's children.

        Autograph Letter Signed ("Iv. Tourguéneff"),

      Bougival. Les Frenes, July 22, 1880 - In French to Madame [Caroline] Comanville. Turgenev writes to Flaubert’s niece: „I am entirely at your disposal for anything that concerns Flaubert" [in translation] and on philosophy in Russia. - Turgenev and Flaubert first became friends in the 1860s when both had already attained fame as novelists. Flaubert died in May of 1880 and his niece Caroline was in charge of his affairs. In this capacity, she had asked Turgenev to serve on a committee for erecting a monument to Flaubert. Turgenev's main purport in this letter is to express his willingness to serve. He continued by commenting somewhat pessimistically about intellectual life in Russia, in translation: "I am surprised by your question about philosophy in Russia. I must say that I am terribly little concerned with it. Quite recently two young writers wrote books on the subject, it has been some time since anything similar had been written. And so, one of those writers has become mad—and the other is on the point of becoming so. The religious questions which disturb Russia, these have nothing in common with philosophy or with literature." Published in "Lettres d'Ivan Tourgueneff a Mme Viardot, a Flaubert et a Mme Commanville" in Cosmopolis vol 4, p 163, 1896. See also Flaubert and Turgenev, a Friendship in Letters, 1985.

        A California Lake with a Cabin and Mountains

      San Francisco: circa 1880. Oil on canvas. 27 x 22 inches. Signed W. Voegtlin lower left. From the Civil War to the turn of the twentieth century a dozen painters won fame as scenic artists in the United States. A number were born and trained in Europe. William Voegtlin, born in Basel, Switzerland, came to New York before the Civil War, won fame as the creator of the fantastic stage world of the first extravaganza, "The Back Crook." He traversed the country supplying sets for theaters in San Francisco, Chicago, St. Louis, and New Orleans, before settling in as scenic artist at the Union Square Theater and later, the Globe Theater in New York. Among the most versatile of artists, he impressed critics with cityscapes ("Pavements of Paris"), natural scenes (the seashore in "Dennison"), high and low style interiors ("Pique"), and historicist scenes (The Salvini-Mary Anderson production of "Romeo and Juliet" painted to Alfred Thompson designs). Upon his death in 1892, Voegtlin's legacy was continued by his son, Arthur, artist at the Madison Square Theater, Born in Germany [actually Switzerland] in 1850. During the 1870s and 1880s Voegtlin was in San Francisco where he painted scenery at the Third Street Opera House. By 1888 he was working in NYC and in 1900 he was in Newark, NJ.

        Russisches Zarenhaus: 10 Original-Photographien von Mitgliedern der russ. Kaiser-Familie in großem Collagen-Karton einmontiert, um mittig plazierte Lithographie mit Bildnis eines russischen Offiziers im Chevalier-Garde-Regiment zu Pferde.

      - Einzelphotographien zwischen ca. 1880 bis 1900, alle ca. 12 (H) x 9 cm oder etwas größer; Collagen-Karton ca. 80 (H) x 86 cm. Großformatige Photocollage mit lithographiertem Bildnis eines russischen Offiziers im Chevalier-Garde-Regiment zu Pferde, dieses umkränzt von 10 einmontierten Original-Photographien von Mitgliedern des Russ. Zaren-Hauses. - Collagen-Karton ist mit dunkelbraunem Filzstoff überzogen, mittig ist das lithographierte Reiterbildnis mit Messingrahmen und Messingapplikationen plaziert, kreisförmig wird dieses Bild von eingelassenen, mit Messingrahmen umgebenen Medaillons umkränzt, in denen sich die 10 Original-Photographien befinden. Die drei sich über dem Bildnis befindlichen und das mittig unter dem Bildnis platzierte Medaillons sind größer als die anderen: ca. 15 (H) x 12 cm, und beinhalten alle ein handgeschnittenes weißes Passepartout, das sich an die ovalen Messing-Rahmen anpaßt; sie zeigen oben mittig Zar Alexander II. in fortgeschrittenem Alter, links davon sein Sohn Zar Alexander III., rechts davon dessen Frau Maria Fjodorwna (Dagmar von Dänemark), die Zarin, unten mittig schließlich deren Sohn, den Zarewitsch Alexandrowitsch Romanow (späterer Zar Nikolaus II.). - Die weiteren Photographien weisen alle ein erhöhtes Oval aus, die die Abbildungen umschließen, die sie umgebenden Messingrahmen sind kleiner (ca. 12 (H) x 9 cm). Zweifelsfrei identifizieren konnte ich nur des 2. Bild von oben an der rechten Seite (5.), Alexei Alexandrowitsch Romanow, den Bruder des Zaren Alexander III, in einer Navy-Uniform, ihm gegenüber auf der linken Seite könnte sich ein weiterer Bruder, nämlich Vladimir Alexandrovich Romanov befinden, über diesen beiden zuletzt genannten könnten sich Brüder des Zaren Alexander II. befinden (4. und 10.), die beiden Photos neben dem Zarewitsch (6. u. 8.) könnten evtl. denselben in einem höheren Lebensalter darstellen. - Die Collage war ursprünglich gerahmt, die Photos sind deshalb auch relativ gut erhalten. Das Offiziers-Litho weist leichte Kratzspuren auf, die Messingeinrahmung der Litho ist etwas oxidiert; die Ovalrahmen sind Teil leicht angemackt. - Die photographischen Bildnisse befinden sich in ihrem ursprünglichen Zustand und wurden nicht etwa geöffnet. Die Betrachtung von der Rückseite der Collage zeigt, daß die mit Montage-Papier überzogenen Photo-Träger-Kartons Formate zwischen 16 und 17 cm in der Höhe und 10,5 bis 11,5 cm in der Breite besitzen, daß es sich hierbei also um Cartes Cabinet-Photographien handelt. - 2 verbliebene Aufkleber, die ursprünglich von der verkleideten Rückseite des Rahmens stammen, weisen die Namen zweier namhaften Betriebe in Riga auf, nämlich des "Vergoldungs-, Bilder- und Spiegel-Magazin / von Johann Hützschke", sowie der Fa. "C. F. Goertchen / . / Portefeuilles und Galanterie-Arbeiten". - Da Collage überformatig, bitte Portokosten ins Ausland erfragen! [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      [Japan 1880, no publisher]. Stiff boards, accordion album,. contains 11 double-page woodcut color prints, or 22 smaller. prints, each Chuban page is 21 x 17 cm., rebacked,mismatched. covers, each page is a small dyptich. OBSCURE ITEM !. BEGINNING OF THE MEIJI PERIOD BOOK OF KABUKI & SAMURAI The contents consists of 10 double-illustrations in full woodblock printed color. Some of the pages are slightly mis-aligned, which is normal for a book of this period and nature. * THE ARTIST: Sho-Setsu-Sai Gin-Koh is his real name, and he used his studio name Adachi Ginkoh for this book, he flourished 1874-97. He had several other Go or studio names, see Roberts below for more details. * Each print shares a date cartouche at the top, stating Meiji period, these are diptych type woodcuts, each pair equals a single image or scene from a Kabuki play. The action starts out with a Buddhist priest talking to an itinerant traveler. The next shows two ruffians engaged in conversation. Followed by a man with a stab wound in the belly biting his Kimono to stave off the pain, while two other men look at him. The next shows a man offering a cup of Sake to an Onnagata [woman form, actually acted by a man]. Nest shows a man holding a Kiseru tobacco pipe talking to another man and an Onnagata. Two men are locked in crossed bamboo Kendo swords during sword play and practice. Two samurai look at the same direction, one has drawn his sword in anger. Two Samurai engage in combat, the man on the right trying to avoid being roped while trying to stab his opponent with a short dagger; the other uses a fork-like weapon to jab the other man in the neck while pulling the rope tight. Three Samurai all look to the left, one holds Kiseru pipe, the other two fans. Next shows a central Samurai figure who holds his sword, he looks at a man to his left as does an Onnagata to his right. * DATES: The top of several prints show the dates, which range from 1868-1888, essentially meaning the scenes were from these years. * CONDIDITON: The work is solid having been rebacked at some time. Each of the woodblock prints are laid down on the backing, some show previous old vertical folds, minor corner wear, dusty, old minor stains, but solid and nicely executed in the usual Meiji genre. The album has mismatching covers. The contents consists of 10 double-illustrations in full woodblock printed color. Some of the pages are slightly mis-aligned, which is normal for a book of this period and nature. We tend to be over critical on condition, nevertheless this is a nice work, highly collectable. * A good representation of Meiji type Kabuki/Samurai style plays, with good costumes, period Kimono as well as Western style clothing, typical of that period. The artist's name is on some of the prints along with his cinnabar Hanko or seal. All prints show the names of the actors and whom they portray in the story. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: L. Roberts: DICTIONARY OF JAPANESE ARTISTS, p.32 left colum, states he was an Ukiyo-e printmaker, life unknown, good at Nishiki-e and actors' portraits [as is evidenced by this book], as well as battle scenes. Served as an lillustrator during the Sino-Japanese war, and is highly collected by world museums. * Color scans can be sent by email.

        Über die Entwickelung und den Bau der Schilddrüse mit Rücksicht auf die Entwicklung der Kröpfe.

      - Berlin, Druck und Verlag von Georg Reimer, 1880, Folio, 2 Bl., 59 pp., 4 Holzschnitte im Text und 7 feine lith. Taf. mit 40 Abb., feiner Halbledereinband mit marmor. Deckelbzügen; Widmungsexemplar! Erste Ausgabe mit eigenhändiger Widmung "Hern Hofrath Prfessor Dr. H. Nothnagel hochachtungsvoll d. Verf."! - - Anton Wölfler's (1850-1917) "eingehenden Untersuchungen kommt speziell das Verdienst zu, die Kenntnis des Kropfes nicht bloss in histogenetischer, sondern auch in histologischer Richtung in erheblichster Weise gefördert zu haben. (.) Billroth, N. Weiss und Wölfler stellten als zweite Folge der totalen Exstirpation der Thyreoidea die Tetanie fest. Auch hier ist zu bemerken, daß krampfartige Erscheinungen nach Entfernung der Drüse bereits früher von Ch. Jong (1818) und C.M. Langenbeck (1833) berichtet worden waren. Aus diesen Erfahrungen erwuchs die Erkenntnis, daß nur die teilweise Entfernung der Drüse zulässig ist und haben sich dieser Einschränkung entsprechend die gegenwärtig üblichen Kropfoperationsmethoden: die intrakapsuläre Entfernung der Knopfknoten nach Socin, das Evidement der letzteren nach Kocher, die Resektion des Kropfes nach Mikulicz und Kocher herausgebildet." F. Helfreich, Hdb. Gesch. Med., Begr. v. Puschmann, III, pp.176f. - - Anton Wölfler, Billroth assistant, professor of Surgery at Graz and Prague "devoted special attention to to the surgical treatmeant of goiter." He gave "important classification of thyroid tumours"; foetal adenoma. - - Garrison, p.593; Kelly, 435; Zimmermann-Veith, Great Ideas ., pp.508-509; Bornhauser, Geschichte der Schilddrüsen und Kropfforschung im 19.
