      Berlin: Beuckert & Radetzki, 1880.. Broadside, 16 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches. Some toning and dust-soiling, a couple of minor creases. Backed on thicker paper some time ago. News clippings pasted to verso. Very good. A fascinating broadside, printed in German, for an exhibition from the "Champion rifle shot of the world," William Frank "Doc" Carver, held in Potsdam, Germany on June 13, 1880. In 1879-80, Carver toured Europe to perform in a series of shooting exhibitions, where he engaged in contests with shotguns, rifles, pistols, and shot both from horseback and on foot. Thirty various exhibitions of gunplay are enumerated on the present broadside, such as "Zerschiessen von wenigstens 75 Glaskugeln aus 100" ("Shoot to pieces at least 75 out of 100 glass targets"). During this tour, Doc Carver visited France, Belgium, Austria, and Germany, but spent most of the tour in Great Britain. Upon returning to America, Carver would partner with Buffalo Bill Cody on a traveling Wild West show. In later years, Carver would invent the diving horse stunt, the origin of which, like most of Carver's story, is shrouded in legend. A handsome example of a rare program for an exhibition by one of the Wild West's sharpest shooters.

        Map Of Colorado County

      St. Louis: A. Gast & Co., 1880. AN IMPORTANT TEXAS LAND GRANT Lithograph Paper size: 23 1/2" x 22" Texas, without gold mines or fabulous cities, was rich with abundant and affordable pubic land, which attracted a steady stream of visitors during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Lured by the dream of land ownership or profit from land speculation, many left their homelands for the Texas wilderness. It would be difficult to find better illustrations of this migration than the county survey maps charting the boundaries of tracts and names of grantees. These early maps, contemporary with the arrival of new settlers, provide a fascinating visual history of Texas land policy and the settlement of the Lone Star State. While Texas remained a Spanish dominion, land grants were granted to Spanish subjects only. Authority to grant land rested with the viceroy of New Spain in Mexico City until 1767 when the governor of the province of Texas was invested with the authority to issue grants. In 1820 Spain passed a law allowing foreigners to settle in the empire. The government of the now independent Mexico, which controlled the vast public lands of Texas, followed its colonial predecessor's example and in the proceeding years thousands of Anglo Americans undertook the arduous journey across the continent to take advantage of the opportunity to become Texas landowners. Large land grants were also awarded to colony leaders called empresarios, the most famous of whom are probably Moses and his son Stephen Austin. With no central land office, each colony appointed a land commissioner to issue titles to settlers. In 1830 the Mexican congress outlawed further immigration from the United States, sparking the Texas Revolution in the fall of 1835. Upon the establishment of the new Republic in 1836, Texas secured ownership of more than 200 million acres of public land. The Republic of Texas continued the land policies of Spain and Mexico and under its constitution awarded first-class headright to land to all single men and heads of families residing in Texas on March 2, 1836. The first congress of the Republic also established a General Land Office and during the years of independence a total of 36,876,492 acres was parceled out. The pioneers who settled this land helped defend Texan borders from both Indians and Mexico, the latter of which was eager to regain its lands. They also provided valuable tax revenue for the new nation. Texas became the twenty-eighth state of the Union in 1845. With the exception of the thirteen colonies, it is unique among the states because, upon its admittance, it retained its public lands thus providing for its economic strength and success. The new state used some of this land to settle its debts and make public improvements. Under the terms of the Compromise of 1850, Texas ceded its claim to 67 million acres of land to the west and northwest of its current boundaries in exchange for a payment of $10 million. After the settlement of its $7.75 million of debt, Texas used the remainder of the payment to establish a permanent school fund, build a new capitol and governor's mansion, and create a hospital for the mentally ill. The settlement of this public land remained an important part of state policy. Many of the Spanish community property and homestead laws were retained through the era of Mexican rule and the republican period and remained in practice after Texas became a state. Among these, property was exempt from forced sale and land grants extended only as far as the riverbank and not to the middle of the stream, as dictated by Anglo-Saxon common law. The government retained ownership of the streambed and water flowing through it. Most importantly for Texas, Spanis. Book.

First edition, preceding even the German edition by a year. Schliemann's account of his excavations at Hissarlik/Troy. A shameless self-publicist, motivated more perhaps by his desire for glory than his love of historical truth, Schliemann has been criticised for the brutality of his methods, however Carl Blegen, director of the excavations at the site 1932-8, defended him from his anachronistic detractors; "Although there were some regrettable blunders, those criticisms are largely coloured by a comparison with modern techniques of digging; but it is only fair to remember that before 1876 very few persons, if anyone, yet really knew how excavations should properly be conducted. There was no science of archaeological investigation, and there was probably no other digger who was better than Schliemann in actual field work" (quoted in Rubalcaba and Cline, Digging for Troy, p.30) Four page autograph letter signed from Schliemann to his friend the organist and composer Sir John Stainer tipped in at the half-title, presenting the book and referring to his excavations; " … and so I venture to send you, in memoriam this record of one of the most curious and interesting discoveries of modern days in its latest form …". Letters from Schliemann are far from common on the market.

This copy inscribed on the front free endpaper "Major Dennie from Colonel Knox", the recipient presumably Major William Henry Dennie's surviving son. "This diary was kept by one of only two surviving officers who marched with the Army of the Indus from first to last. It refers mainly to work in the last Afghan campaign that has been almost entirely ignored by Kaye [in his History of the War in Afghanistan, first published 1851], though to Bombay men at all events it was of special interest … the writer probably saw more of Afghanistan geographically than any officer serving in the present campaign; and his notes, which are clear, accurate and pithy, show that the country and the people are still practically unchanged" (Introduction). The journal had been published in instalments in the Times of India to capitalise on the increased interest in the region due to the outbreak of the Second Anglo-Afghan War, and in view of the "favourable reception" it met with, the diary was "issued as a separate volume at the request of several officers at the front and in India, who wished to preserve it in a permanent form".

        Zwei Gesamtansichten von Montreal vom Mount Royal aus gesehen mit dem St. Lorenz und, der Victoria Bridge im Hintergrund, im Vordergrund das (damalige) städtische Wasserreservoir. Orig.-Photos.

      Um 1880-85.. Je 18 x 22 cm. Albuminabzüge. Auf Kartons montiert. Jeweils verso von alter Hand bezeichnet. Sehr gute, frische Abzüge.. Beide Aufnahmen müssen von nahezu genau demselben Standort aus aufgenommen worden sein, jedoch zu verschiedenen Zeiten, da ein bei einer Aufnahme noch im Bau befindliches großes Gebäude auf dem zweiten Photo vollendet ist. (ältere Aufnahmen aus der Zeit zwischen 1865-75 zeigen hier noch zum Teil freie Flächen). William Notman begann als Daguerreotypist in seiner ursprünglichen Heimat Glasgow. 1856 wanderte er nach Canada aus und gründete ein Studio in Montreal, wo er kurz darauf zum offiziellen Photographen von Queen Victoria in Canada ernannt wurde. Er gehörte bald zu den führenden Photographen Canadas und insbesondere Quebecs. Seine drei Söhne William McFarlane jr., Charles und George wurden ebenfalls Photographen und arbeiteten ab 1870 im väterlichen Studio (bis Charles den Betrieb 1934 verkaufte). Notman und seine Söhne hinterließen ein immenses Werk mit Stadtansichten von Montreal u.a. kanadischer Städte, Landschaftsaufnahmen, Portraits berühmter Persönlichkeiten wie z.B. Buffalo Bill, Bildnisse von Trappern, Aufnahmen von Football-Matches, Schiffen und Eisenbahnen, der Caribou-Jagd, Vögeln etc. etc. Das Mc.Cord Museum of Canadian History in Montreal beherbergt das "Notman Photographical Archive" mit einem Bestand von über 450.000 Photographien und Glasnegativen aus dem 78jährigen Bestehens des Studios und seiner Dependancen.

        Original photograph of a nineteenth century French Cabinet of Natural History

      France: circa, 1880. Albumen print photograph, 17.5 x 23 cm., early manuscript note to the reverse, 'Cabinet de physique (côte gauche droit au fond)'; in excellent condition, a very small repair to the back in the upper corner causing insignificant discolouration. A very rare original albumen print photograph of a French cabinet of scientific and natural curiosities taken around 1880, with early manuscript note to the reverse, 'Cabinet de physique (côte droit au fond)'. Pride of place in one of the cabinets is given to a well-prepared specimen of a wallaby or small kangaroo and, even more remarkably, a platypus is also displayed on one of the high shelves near the corner. This is an exceptionally interesting image, and provides an uncommon opportunity to understand the selection and display of natural history specimens in a nineteenth-century setting. The variety of animals on display is particularly notable, with animals ranging from several big cats to a beaver. Numerous birds are displayed, and although many of the smaller birds are perhaps too indistinct to be firmly identified, there is certainly at least one penguin and several other well-known species can clearly be distinguished. The way in which the specimens are displayed, and particularly the fact that all of the glass doors are open and several pieces of laboratory equipment are casually arranged, strongly suggests that this is more than a simple snapshot. Unfortunately the author of the note on the back of the photograph has not specified the museum, which remains a tantalising mystery. It can be confidently asserted that it is the right wall of the room: the author originally wrote "gauche", but realising the error, has struck it out and added "droit". It may never be possible to discover the location of the collection, which is likely that of a natural history museum, perhaps attached to a university or teaching facility; having said that, it may even be the rooms of a dealer.

        Philips' New Series of Travelling Maps . Queensland with the unsettled territories adjoining the Gulf of Carpenteria

      London & Liverpool: George Philip & Son, circa, 1880. Folding map measuring 690 x 570 mm., printed in colour on original linen backing, 16 pp. index; quite fine in original blue cloth case lettered in black and gilt, a few spots. Large and handsome map of Queensland from the uniform series of traveller's maps issued by George Philip & Son. In addition to rich topographic detail, land divisions, rivers and goldfields, the map details principal features of the Great Barrier Reef, indicating the ribbon reefs stretching to the north of Port Douglas and Osprey Reef in the Coral Sea. The map was issued by the London based cartographic publisher George Philip, one of the most prosperous and energetic mapmakers of nineteenth-century England. Philip was born into a devout Calvinist family and two of his brothers went on to become preachers. Although a successful businessman his philanthropic background gave Philip a strong motivation to printing educational and instructional material at prices accessible to working folk. This is reflected in his range of maps for emigrants to Australia and New Zealand, and his decision to publish an atlas for Australian schoolchildren in 1865. Significantly, Philips was also an innovator in the use of colour lithography for the production of commercial maps. The map was prepared for publication by William Shawe, a fellow of the Royal Society noted by Tooley for his cartography of Africa. Shawe also prepared the Western Australia map published by Philips in the uniform traveller's maps series.
