        Garfield?s signed copy of the 1880 <I>?Report of the Commissioners of Fisheries of Maryland?</I> ? the year he was elected President

      The first Presidential memorial library, completed at the Lawnfield estate in Ohio by the widow of James Garfield four years after his assassination, houses almost 3,000 books that were used and treasured by the 20th president. Books were a scarce commodity to young James, who lost his father before the age of two, and was raised by his mother who struggled to maintain a humble existence. Both James Garfield and his wife Lucretia were voracious readers and amassed a large collection of books. Some twenty years ago, several dozen of his books were de-accessioned, and one of these books is described below: Book, ?Report of the Commissioners of Fisheries of Maryland January, 1880,? soft cover, 78 pages plus 269 page Appendix ?Development of the American Oyster,?, 5.5? x 9?. Annapolis: Maryland Republican Print., 1880. Signed ?J.A. Garfield? on the cover. Illustrated with charts and diagrams including ten plates ?Development of the Oyster.? Attached to the last page is a fold-out 21.5? x 36.5? United States Coast Survey color map, ?Coast Chart / Chesapeake Bay? (slight tear). Light soiling at the top and right edges of the cover. Foxing on the fore-edge.Housed in a custom blue-cloth covered clamshell case with ?Report of the / Commissioners / of Fisheries / of Maryland? stamped in gilt on a blue leather label at the top of the spine and, on lower portion, also in gilt, ?James Garfield?s / Signed Copy / 1880.? On January 13, 1880, the month this report was issued, U.S. Representative James A. Garfield was elected to the U.S. Senate for the term beginning March 4, 1881. On November 2, 1880, Garfield was elected President. At that moment he was a member of the House of Representatives, Senator-elect, and President-elect. On November 8th, he resigned from the House and on December 23rd, after the Electoral College met, he declined his January 1880 election to the Senate. On March 4, 1881, he was inaugurated President.

        (1) Electric Lamps. Letters Patent for an Invention of "IMPROVEMENTS IN ELECTRIC LAMPS, AND IN THE MATERIALS EMPLOYED IN THEIR CONSTRUCTION." [British Patent] No. 4933. + (2) Electric Lighting by Incandescence (Royal Institution of Great Britain. Weekly Evening Meeting, Friday, March 10, 1882. (Offprint). (3) Original handwritten letter, signed "J.W. Swan", to "G.S. Bruce Esquire", dated "June 8/85".

      [London, Eyre and Spottiswoode], 1880, 27th November + 1882 + 1885 (1): 8vo. Unbound. With a recent, discreete paper spine. A few smaller tears to extremities. 4 pp. + 1 plate (showing electric light bulbs].(2): 8vo. Original self-wrappers. Stitched at spine. Near mint.(3): 4 pages 8vo.. Scarce original printed patent for the seminal invention that is the incandescent light bulb. Though usually erroneously ascribed to Thomas Edison, it was in fact Joseph Swan who invented the light bulb and ended the dark ages. - Here sold together with the extremely scarce offprint of Swan's 1882 speech on his seminal invention as well as a highly important and interesting autograph letter on the same subject, namely "the new filament or "Artificial Silk" as I have been calling it", in which Swan also confirms his priority in invention and warns against letting the withsent speciman fall into the hands of lamp makers. Swan first publicly demonstrated his incandescent carbon lamp at a lecture for the Newcastle upon Tyne Chemical Society on December 18th 1878. However, after burning with a bright light for some minutes in his laboratory, the lamp broke down due to excessive current. By 1879 Swan had solved the problem of incandescent electric lighting by means of a vacuum lamp and he publicly demonstrated a working lamp to a larger audience. He was not completely satisfied, however, as there were still some fundamental problems attached to it that would make it impossible to consider the invention completed. By 1880, however, he had finally reached perfection. The striking improvements consisted in the carbonised paper filaments being discarded in favour of "parchmentised" cotton thread. Finally, he deemed his milestone invention worthy of filing a patent, and on that memorable day of November 27th 1880, he was granted that most important British Patent No. 4933, "Electric Lamps", marking man's final conquest of darkness. "My invention relates to electric lamps in which is produced by passing an electric current through a conductor of carbon so as to render it incandescent, said carbon conductor being enclosed in an air tight and vacuous or partially vacuous glass vessel.It is well known that the practical efficiency of the kind of electric lamp above described has hitherto been impaired by the want of homogeneity and compactness in the carbon conductors, and by the imperfection of the contact betwixt it and the metallic conductors which convey the electric current to it. I have found that an exceedingly solid, homogenous, and elastic form of carbon, peculiarly adapted for the formation of arches, spirals, or other forms of conductor for electric lamps, can be produced from cotton thread which has been subjected to the action of sulpuric acid of such strength as to cause a similar kind of change to take place in the thread to that which takes place in the bibulous paper in the well known process of making vegetable parchment." (Lines 6-19 in the present patent).From the time of his patent, Swan began installing light bulbs in homes and landmarks in England. His house, Underhill on Kells Lane in Low Fell, Gateshead, was the world's first to have working light bulbs installed. In 1881 he founded his own company, The Swan Electric Light Company and began commercial production of his light bulb.The invention of the light bulb is a turning point in the history of mankind, like the wheel or the invention of the printing press. As McLuhan put it in his groundbreaking main work, "a light bulb creates an environment by its mere presence." (p. 8). It does not have content in itself, as e.g. a newspaper, but it is a medium with a social effect strong enough to change the way we think, act, and behave. A light bulb enables people to create spaces during nighttime that would otherwise be enveloped by darkness. Electric light is "pure information" - a medium without a message. "Whether the light is being used for brain surgery or night baseball is a matter of indifference." Both activities, he explains are in some way the content of electric light, as they could not exist without the light. The medium that is electric light shapes and controls the scale and form of human association and action. The question of who the actual inventor of the light bulb was has been greatly debated ever since those crucial years of 1879-80. Working on the invention at about the same time as Swan, but independently, was Thomas Edison. In America, Edison had been working on copies of Swan's original light bulb. Though Swan had beaten him to this goal, Edison obtained patents (November 1879) for a fairly direct copy of the Swan light, and started an advertising campaign that claimed that he was the real inventor. Swan, who was less interested in making money from the invention, but who had still established the first commercial manufacture of incandescent light bulbs, agreed that Edison could sell the lights in America while he retained the rights in Britain. They soon agreed, however, to work together.Following his successful laboratory experiments in 1878, Swan let two years pass before taking steps to patent his invention. It might be difficult to understand why Swan did not make more haste and let Edison beat him to it, but the answer seems to be fairly clear: "the principle of the carbon lamp had long been known. The fact that he had made this principle workable, was not in Swan's opinion capable of sustaining a patent." (The Pageant of the Lamp, p. 28). The patent that he saw fit to take out was that for the step in the process which made the light bulb perfectly functional and ready for commercial launch - only then did it make sense to take out the patent. In principle, Edison's earlier patent contains nothing new. Only with the patent by Swan, the true inventor of the light bulb, is the incandescent light bulb presented for the first time in it fully functioning form. Edison and Swan, both practical men, soon agreed to more or less simultaneous discovery of the light bulb, and they decided to cooperate. "As it was, the two inventors took the sensible view. Litigation would only have squandered their energies and resources; and in 1881 they wisely combined forces, their respective English companies being merged into the Edison & Swan United Electric Light Company Limited." (The Pageant of the Lamp, p. 29). "When the inventors united in a combination which gave them a virtual monopoly, it was Swan's parchmentised cellulose which glowed in the fine lamps of Edison and Swan." (The Pageant of the Lamp, p. 31).The Savoy in London, was the first public building in the world lit entirely by electricity. Swan supplied about 1,200 incandescent lamps, powered by an 88.3 kW (120hp) generator on open land near the theatre. The builder of the Savoy, Richard D'Oyly Carte, explained why he had introduced Swan's electric light: "The greatest drawbacks to the enjoyment of the theatrical performances are, undoubtedly, the foul air and heat which pervade all theatres. As everyone knows, each gas-burner consumes as much oxygen as many people, and causes great heat beside. The incandescent lamps consume no oxygen, and cause no perceptible heat."[15] The first generator proved too small to power the whole building, and though the entire front-of-house was electrically lit, the stage was lit by gas until 28 December 1881. At that performance, Carte stepped onstage and broke a glowing lightbulb before the audience to demonstrate the safety of Swan's new technology.THE INCLUDED LETTER reads: "I herewith send a specimen of the new filament or "Artificial Silk" as I have been calling it. It is as you are probably aware produced on the same principle as silk i.e. from a liquid which solidifies immediately after emission from aperture. Made thick it is very like silk-worm gut -- made thinner it is like hair. Very superior carbon filaments can be produced from it. I do not wish any of it to go into the hands of lamp makers. Therefore please return the specimen together with the lamp to the stand at the EXn (i.e. exhibition). I have told Howard Swan who has charge of my stand at the Exhn to let you have the Miner's Safety Lamp. I was the first to propose this application of the incandescent lamp & the first to actually make such a lamp. Very truly yours, J.W. Swan."

        Lilium martagonvar dalmaticum

      Henry John Elwes (1846-1922) was a British botanist, naturalist and author, celebrated for his travels throughout Asia, including the Himalayan Mountains, with the Geographical Section of the British Association and noted for his collection of lily specimens. In 1880 Elwes published a spectacular collection of prints depicting various species of one of the world's favorite flowers, the lily.The ?Monograph of the Genus Lilium? is the result of a collaborative effort, the organization and text by Elwes and the images by renowned botanical illustrator Walter Hood Fitch. Although Fitch's drawings for Elwes' ?Genus Lilium? were the last great works of his career, in his lifetime, Fitch produced nearly 10,000 illustrations. This hand-colored folio size lithograph, Lilium martagonvar dalmaticum, measures 21.75? x 15? and is in excellent condition with small foxing marks.This lily, commonly known as the Martagon or Turk's Cap Lily, is richly colored with a green stem and leaves which rise to lush purple and pink colored flowers and buds with yellow stamen. This lithograph is extremely well detailed and portrays the flowers naturalistically. The addition to the flowers alone, sections of the bulb and root and different variations of the flower are also illustrated, giving this lithograph a scientific influence.

First German Edition! - "Sir Morell Mackenzie's (1837-1892) great reputation earned him the title of Father of British Laryngology. In 1863 he founded the Golden Square Throat Hospital, London. The first hospital in the world devoted solely to diseases of the throat; he was also the founder of the Journal of Laryngology. He was called to attend Crown Prince Frederick afterwards Emperor Frederick III of Germany, who suffered from, succumbed to, a cancer of the larynx. Mackenzie was much maligned by a section of German medical profession for refusing to agree to operation until biopsy had been performed. Three speciems proved negative and operation was delayed until too late. Mackenzie's health was affected by his arducous duties on behalf of the Emperor and he died in 1892. - This book was the standard work on the subject and had an important influence on the development of laryngology. - Garrison & Morton No.3287 (Engl.

        Dairy Farming Being the Theory, Practice, and Methods of Dairying

      Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co. ca. 1880, London - I simply don't have any faults to tell about on this book; it is in fine, lovely, unworn condition with no handwriting in it, straight, clean and tight, with no soiling and no wear to binding or plates. Gorgeous fine binding with Art Nouveau-type binding with half red leather with 5 raised spine bands and gilt printing and decorations on spine, marbled boards, and all page edges gilt. 25 fascinating delicately and beautifully colored full page chromolithographic plates plus B&W text illustrations. Includes a double page color map: 'Dairy Farming in America - Copied from the 9th U.S. Census' measuring approximate ly 10-1/2" x 16" (in color, and fine condition). Presumed 1st edition (copyright page blank and undated but ca. early 1880s). 10-7/8" tall x 8-3/4" wide x 2" thick (quite heavy). Called for errata sheet bound in. 570 pages including Index, plus 4 pages (2 double-sided sheets) of ads. One plate is listed as being at page 551 and is actually bound in at 556. Laid in is a contemporary to the book newsletter printed on blue paper, 4 pages (large sheet folded once, printed both sides, entitled 'Land', which is an ad for 'A Journal for all interested in Landed and House Property', on the front page, an ad for 'The Livestock Journal and Fancier's Gazette' on the last page, and lists books published by this publisher on the middle two pages. It was not until the late 1800s that cattle breeds were developed specifically for dairy purposes. This book was an effort in the late 19th century to encourage local dairying by teaching the methods needed for raising dairy cattle and producing milk, butter and cheese, and doing so in a safe-for-consumption and standardized manner, instead of importing too much product. Also, in an effort to improve the quality of American dairy products and to make them more acceptable abroad, the Bureau of Animal Industry of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) established the Division of Agrostology and the Dairy Division in 1895, and used some of the information first made available in this book, including the effects of forage grasses on the flavor, odor, and quality of milk and milk products. The watercolor drawing on the left depicts different types of pasture grasses.; Color Illustrations; 10-7/8" x 8-3/4"; 570 incl. Index pages [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Album of Photographs from the Second Afghan War

      Murree: John Burke (Late Baker & Burke),, c.1880. Landscape folio (337 × 445 mm) Contemporary burgundy half morocco, brown morocco-grained boards, gilt rules to spine bands, and edges of spine and corners, all edges gilt, white moiré effect endpapers, lacking the rear free. 33 mounted albumen photographs, the majority c.230 × 290 mm , a few slightly smaller formats, captioned, and numbered according to Burke's catalogue of 1884. Some what rubbed and stained, cloth a touch faded, some blank leaves added at the rear where a number had been removed, mounting leaves lightly browned and with some marginal fingersoiling, the prints themselves in the main retaining a good deep violet-sepia tone, just a few showing some fade or discolouration at the margins. At around seventeen years old John Burke travelled out to India as an assistant apothecary to the Royal Artillery, but he spent very little time in the service before forming a partnership with William Baker, a retired sergeant of the 87th Regiment, in a photographic studio; "the first commercial photographers in Peshawar and in the North-West Frontier … [ranking] among the earliest war, news and landscape photographers in the Indian subcontinent … [becoming] over the next decades the first photographers to work in large areas of northern British India and the independent feudal realms of Kashmir and Afghanistan" (Khan, From Kashmir to Kabul, p.11). Outside of the extensive archive of the photographs themselves, they left little record of their lives, taking a prominent place "among the finest forgotten photographers of the British Raj". Whatever the reason for the work of their studio so often being passed over in favour of better-known photographers, Bourne and Shepherd for example, it is not due to any technical or aesthetic shortcomings; "THe chemicals and procedures they used have aged better than those of many others … [and] the rich composition of their images is immediately apparent. In their time, they won many of the top photography awards in competitions throughout British India". Burke's work was also far more widely published in Graphic and the ILN than that of any of his competitors. This excellence has not been lost on genuine connoisseurs of Indian photography, one of the first modern publications of Raj photography Worswick and Embree's The Last Empire … - based on Worswick's pioneering collection, now at the Getty Research Institute - included more photographs by Burke and Baker than by any of their contemporaries. "Burke accompanied the Peshawar Valley Field Force, one of three British Anglo-Indian army columns deployed in the Second Afghan War (1878-80), despite being rejected for the role of official photographer. He financed his trip by advance sales of his photographs 'illustrating the advance from Attock to Jellalabad' … Burke's two-year Afghan expedition produced an important visual document of the region where the strategies of the Great Game were played out" (BL on-line cataloguing). Thirty images in this album can be identified in the BL India Office Select Materials photo album 487, the remaining three, showing a view of Mackeson's Bridge, and two in the Landi Kotal Pass, have been traced in the 1884 catalogue of Burke's work. Armorial bookplate of Stewart-Mackenzie of Seaforth, to the front pastedown. Colonel James Alexander Francis Humberston Stewart-Mackenzie, 1st Baron Seaforth, was educated at Glenalmond College, Harrow, and Sandhurst, commissioned 1867 into the 9th Lancers. He served for over thirty years, retiring as the regiment's colonel. During the Second Afghan War he saw action at Maidan, Killa Kazi, Kabul, Sherpur and Kandahar, wounded, MiD twice. Subsequently he served as military secretary to Sir Mountstuart Grant Duff, Governor of Madras, 1886-8. Some wonderful images with a splendid association.
