        A superb example of Hesler's celebrated portrait of a beardless Lincoln, printed by George B. Ayres

      Philadelphia, 1881. 8" x 10". "Mounted albumen photograph on a 8"" x 10"" mount, with embossed credit ""G. B. AYRES COPYRIGHT 1881"" stamped at both the left and right bottom corners. Signed on the verso ""Copyright Geo. B. Ayres Phila"" Ostendorf O-26. Some minor wear and abrasions to emulsion and mounting remnants well clear of Lincoln's portrait, overall very good. Chicago photographer Alexander Hesler was invited to photograph Lincoln in Springfield in June 1860 soon after his nomination for President at the Republican National Convention. During the sitting in the Old State House Hesler took three portraits. Lincoln remarked upon seeing the proofs, ?That looks better and expresses me better than I have ever seen; if it pleases the people I am satisfied.? This photograph is considered one of the finest ever taken of Lincoln. His law partner William Herndon noted of it, ?There is the peculiar curve of the lower lip, the lone mole on the right cheek, and a pose of the head so essentially Lincolnian; no other artist has ever caught it.? (Ostendorf O-26) Artist George B. Ayres acquired two of Hesler?s original negatives following the close of the Civil War and made a living selling prints of them from the 1880s through the turn of the century. Ayres? original interpositive for this image was broken in transit in the 1930s."

        MANUSCRIPT ARCHIVE OF UNION CAPTAIN JAMES COOKE, Co. "F," 52nd PENNSYLVANIA INFANTRY, RELATING TO THE BATTLES OF WILLIAMSBURG AND SEVEN PINES].

      [Various locations]. 1861-1881. - An interesting archive, including a manuscript battle map, three letters, and various documents relating to Capt. James Cooke's experiences in the Civil War. Cooke mustered in on Sep. 5, 1861 and eventually served as captain in Co. "F," 52nd Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers. He served at several battles, most notably the Battle of Seven Pines in Virginia, then resigned on Oct. 21, 1863. The individual items included in the archive are as follows: 1) Manuscript Map of the Seven Pines Battlefield, measuring 15.75" x 12.5", showing the area around Fair Oaks Station. A wonderful, hand-drawn map by Cooke. He has designated the positions of both the 52nd and 104th Pennsylvania Infantries, marking places such as "Fight commenced here," "Fighting all through here," "52 [Pennsylvania] in line of Battle," and "the way the Rebs came." Cooke also marks topographical details such as roads, a railroad track, woods, and the Chickahominy River. Some fold separations, with minor loss of paper, noticeable stain in the middle of the map straddling the vertical fold. Cooke has written a short explanatory note, initialed by him, on the verso to the same recipient as the following letter. 2) Autograph letter, signed. Camp Near Bottoms Ridge. June 18, 1862. To "Dear Friend Joe." A fantastic, sixteen page letter with details regarding the Battles of Williamsburg and Seven Pines. The Union army had laid siege to Yorktown, Virginia, from April 5, 1862, until Confederate forces silently withdrew in the night hours of May 3. Cooke was there as Federal troops entered the town the following morning, and described the scene: "We went through the woods cautiously with our skirmishers in advance but we could see no signs of life in any of the Forts and our men went along without any opposition.we had no idea that it was a general evacuation of the whole place." The rebels, however, had not left the place totally unguarded: "I was just agoing [sic] when I heard a stunning report behind me.and the men in my company falling down. I supposed right away that it was a masked battery on the opposite side of the road. I then went to the rear of the company and found.a deep hole in the ground showing it was one of those infernal machines [near Williamsburg, Virginia, the first known use of modern land mines] that the Black Hearted Traitors planted all along the roads leading to Williamsburg." The next day, May 5, Cooke and his men find themselves held in reserve near the fighting at the Battle of Williamsburg. They advanced and "as we were going up I could hear the roar of the musketry and the yells of the boys when they made the charge." The men of the 52nd never joined the fight as when they reached the field, "the fight was over for that day and.as the rebels still occupied a large fort we would go at them in the morning." Two days after arriving at Williamsburg, they "struck out for Richmond" and reached the Chickahominy River on May 19, meeting some light resistance along the way: "Our men.drove the pickets of the enemy.and skirmished up to the bank of the river in the face of a severe fire of infantry and artillery by the Rebs." On Saturday, May 31, they "took the advance toward Richmond.[and] uncovered the enemy in force in front of us." The Battle of Seven Pines was about to commence. Cooke writes about it in great detail: "Skirmishers from the 52nd.were sent out and soon drew the fire of the enemy's pickets and.a battery that was hid behind a woods. The 104th [Pennsylvania Infantry] was sent forward on our left.and we were ordered to advance along the road.the balls went howling over our heads like something mad. This being the first time many of the boys had heard a ball scream.it made a good many look white.but not a man flinched." The men advanced over the hill, "the Rebels.gave us the full benefit of three or four guns. We filed off to the right.to get out of range but they followed us with their shots which fell all around us." After assuming line of bat

        DEBATES And PROCEEDINGS Of The CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION of the State of CALIFORNIA, Convened at the City of Sacramento, Saturday, September 28, 1878.

      Sacramento: J. D. Young, Supt. State Printing. 1880 - 1881. 3 volumes ( 640; [2], 641 - 1152; [2], 1153 - 1578) Text double column. Index concludes volume 3. This second Constitutional Convention of California revised the state Constitution to include an extended Bill of Rights, imposed [certain] restrictions on the power of the legislature, and dropped Spanish as the second legal language of the state. While certainly not a popular page-turner, this set represents the will of the people, and as such, offers a wealth of data to sociological researchers investigating the mid-to-late 19th C. "Far West" milieu. The set infrequently on the commerical market, with the last set at auction in 2000. Binding - Fine. Textblock - Overall VG (paper beginning to yellow/ex-lib, with the occasional oval stamp).

Précieux envoi autographe signé de Victor Hugo à sa cuisinière Virginie qui, à Guernesey, semblait assurer d'autres services au poète ainsi qu'en témoigne son carnet de l'époque: "Touché seins de Sophie, vu ceux de Constance (...) Charlotte, Cloche (...), Virginie, la Cuisinière, cloche; la femme de chambre, cloche". L'énigmatique annotation "cloche" signifierait selon Guillemin (cf. Hugo et la sexualité): "secouer la grosse cloche en branle", expression empruntée à sa pièce de théatre l'Epée. On ne sait si en 1881 l'ardeur du poète pour sa domestique était apaisée, Hugo étant réputé pour avoir poursuivi son oeuvre de séduction jusqu'à la fin de sa vie. Quelques petites rousseurs sans gravité.

Bound in three quarter blue morocco and matching cloth sides, t.e.g., bookplate of Joseph Spencer Grayson. Spines sunned, very minor loss at front edges of firts several leaves of Volume One, else fine. First edition. vi,[237], [1] ; [viii], 246, [28, advertisements dated November 1880] pp. 2 vols. 8vo. "The Rev. Mr. Peacocke became vice-president of a college in St. Louis, Missouri. While there he befriended the deserted wife of Ferdinand Lefroy and after having verified, as he thought, a report of the man's death, married the widow. Soon after Lefroy returned, made himself known to them, but immediately disappeared again. Unable to trace him, the Peacockes left St. Louis and went to England. There they obtained positions in Dr. Wortle's school where they became very popular, Mrs. Peacocke as house-mother for the smaller boys, and Mr. Peacocke as an inspiring teacher. Stimulated by Mrs. Stantiloup, a woman who had been worsted by Dr. Wortle in a suit involving school fees, rumors arose that the past of the Peacockes would not bear investigation. The Bishop interfered and Dr. Wortle made inquiry of his teacher, whose story was sympathetically received. The same day Robert Lefroy, Ferdinand's brother, appeared at the school in an attempt at blackmail, but, finding that the story he had to tell was already known, admitted that his brother had since died. To obtain proof of this statement Mr. Peacocke induced Lefroy to accompany him to San Francisco, where he located Ferdinand's grave. On his return, Dr. Wortle performed another marriage ceremony, and the gossip gradually died down. The love story of Mary Wortle and the young Lord Carstairs is incidental to the main theme."

Although hardly Byron's equal as a writer, her prose somwhat turgid, she nevertheless enjoyed popularity on account of the travel writing she and her husband did based on their travels in the Near East. Lady Anne was one of the most level-headed of all women travelers. To find out how the Bedouin lived, she lived like one herself: she became a temporary nomad, riding the two thousand miles from the Mediterranean to the Persian Gulf for the most part in Arab dress, and without guides. She and her husband were trusted and accepted by the Bedouin. Indeed, the Amir himself presented them with his choicest brood mares to take home for their famous Crabbet Arabian Stud.

        The Compleatest Angling book that ever was writ, being done out of ye Hebrewe and other Tongues, by a person of Honor

      by Andro Reid for ye author", [Colophon:] "Newe Castle upon Tine" 1881 - Crawhall, Joseph. Second edition, one of 100 copies printed. Illustrated with numerous woodcuts, etchings, hand-colored ornaments, etc., by the author. 1 vols. 4to. The much enlarged edition of one of the most curious and beautiful books in all of angling literature, printed for "those who have, in vain, searched for the edition of 1859", of which only 40 copies were printed. "With one or two exceptions the volume contains all the old plates and nearly as many new ones, all displaying the humorous feeling and the artistic skill which give Mr. Crawhall's works 'a place apart' among angling books." (Westwood & Satchell)A very desirable copy, with 3 notable pieces of Crawhalliana laid in: (1) an ALS from Crawhall dated May 14, 1881 to the original subscriber, J.W. Pease, thanking him for his subscription and promising to "send you a formal & I hope more artistic acknowledgment, now in printer's hands"; (2) a printed bill to Pease for 1 copy of "The Compleatest Angling Booke", accomplished in Crawhall's hand, signed and dated ("June 11-12 '81") by him; and (3) large woodcut showing Crawhall peeking from behind the printer's device of William Caxton - this is a proof of the illustration on p. lxxvi, and no doubt the "more artistic acknowledgment" which Crawhall promised to send to Pease. It is docketed in Crawhall's hand at the lower edge, "J.W. Pease, Esq. J.C's compls" Westwood & Satchell, p. 70 Publisher's black blind-stamped calf, spine titles in gilt, boards with gilt rule border, t.e.g. by A. Reid, Newcastle.

        Album Amicorum - Presented to Harold Newton, graduate of Borough Road Training College

      London, 1881. London, 1881-1882. Collegiate album amicorum containing 37 pages of manuscript contributions, mostly watercolours and ink drawings and featuring several nautical scenes, some creative writings, and one photograph. Presented to Harold Newton, graduate of Borough Road Training College, whom would become a teacher at the college the following year. With illuminated dedication page dated and inscribed by the presenter, and also with an autograph page signed in the original by 8 faculty members and 3 fellow graduates. 8vo. maroon calf binding, gilt tooling, five raised bands, original marbled endpapers. Volume measures approximately 19.5 x 24.5 cm. Wear to boards, mainly to extremities and spine, otherwise very good condition, a delightful reminiscence of Victorian and Edwardian England. Three masted barques, schooners, private sailing vessels and fishing boats, navigating rough waters, serenely coasting, or laying in waiting on a cliff flanked shore, hand drawn and colourful painted scenes whisk the viewer into the seafaring life of old England. Cottage homes, rural villages, and iconic characters complete the visual journey into the past, a reminiscence which begins, for Harold Newton, with his time as a student at the pioneering Borough Road College in Southwark. The comprehensive acquisition of 11 signatures from the college's principal, masters, tutors, and the like, suggest that the dedicatee was well respected. Having graduated in April 1882, Harold Newton was subsequently appointed a teacher and assistant master in January 1883. [Seven signatures of the institution's eight teachers at the time are included.] The volume is also inscribed by 58 fellow students, forming a register of names and residences, and illustrating that students came from vast regions of England and Wales. A few highlights of this journal include the following: • A beautiful watercolour of Robin Hood?'s Bay, a small fishing village and a bay located within the North York Moors National Park, five miles south of Whitby • Seven unique sailing vessel scenes • A three-mast schooner drawn in ink and signed, "With best wishes, Sincerely, John Opie. 2.6.82." The artist's signature and address, Four Lanes, Redruth [county of Cornwall], is found on the list of fellow students. Further research may find him to be a descendant or relation of English revered painter John Opie (1761-1807) of the neighbouring village of Trevellas, Cornwall. • A sketch drawing of an upper class woman, signed "London, 23 Juillet 1888, Henri de Woestyne." The artist may be a relation of famous Belgian expressionist artist Gustave Van de Woestyne (1881-1947) who belonged to the "First Group of Latem", a collective of artists who worked in Sint-Martens-Latem on the banks of the Lys, near Ghent. • A lovely watercolour rendition of Hammersmith features the original Hammersmith Bridge built in 1827 and the Lyric Opera House which was built on Bradmore Grove in 1888. • Comrades write farewell poems and verses of their college experience and the most memorable characters. Continued contributions to the volume, dating up to 1913. These all being hand sketched drawings or paintings, suggest that Harold Newton travelled in artistic circles. Originating as Joseph Lancaster's School in 1798, Borough Road College, an associated teacher training institute, moved to Borough Road in Southwark in 1804. In 1889 the College moved to Isleworth in west London. As part of the British and Foreign School Society (BFSS), in the 19th century it supported free British Schools and teacher training, and was an important development in the provision of universal free education for children. The Society was founded by Joseph Fox, William Allen and Samuel Whitbread. It was supported by several evangelical and non-conformist Christians, including William Wilberforce. In 1975, Borough Road College merged with Maria Grey Training College to form the West London Institute of Higher Education. Following a subsequent merger with Brunel in 1995, the site became the University's Osterley campus. The site was sold in 2006 with remaining staff and students relocating to Uxbridge. In the 1881-1882 term there were 127 students in residence at Borough Road College. 65 first year students, 64 second year students. The teaching staff consisted of eight male professors, as follows: J. Curtis (principal), George E. Buckle (head master / master of method), A.W. Ward (mathematical lecturer), Edwin Barkby (tutor), Andrew Telfer (assistant tutor), J. Bertenshaw (assistant tutor), James Mills (assistant tutor), and J. Sully (lecturer on mental science). With exception of only Sully, all of the aforementioned have signed this volume in the original! Additional signatures include: Alfred Bourne (secretary at the Society's House), William George Constable (assistant master), Thomas Handel Bertenshaw (fellow graduate, B.A.), Alfred Smith, and William Williams. . Very Good.

      New York, October 26, 1881. 5" x 8". "Magnificent Autograph Letter Signed ?Thomas A. Edison,? one page, 5? x 8?. New York, October 26, 1881. To 18-year-old Edward W. Bok. Light corner crease and fold in blank area. Fine condition.In full, ?I take pleasure in complying with your request for an autograph letter from me.?Just a day before Edison sent his autograph to young Bok, he executed two patents for the ?Dynamo or Magneto Electric Machine? ?" a generator that creates electricity using spinning magnets, and one for the Electric Drop-Light whose object, as Edison described on October 25, 1881, ?is to construct a chandelier to be used with incandescent electric lamps, so that the lamp may be raised or lowered, and so placed at such a height as may at any time be desired.?In 1876, at the age of 12, Edward W. Bok (1863-1930) left school and went to work as an office boy at the Western Union Telegraph Company. He was later employed as private stenographer for Clarence Cary, attorney for Western Union. When asked by Cary of his plans for the future, Bok told him that he would eventually like to work in the publishing business. Edward W. Bok became an autograph collector when he was a teenager.In 1882, a few months after he received this letter from Edison, Bok was told by Cary that his friend Henry Holt would like to see him and he was hired as a stenographer at the Henry Holt & Company publishing house. Bok kept in touch with Cary and, in 1905, named his son Cary William Bok. Editor of the ?Ladies Home Journal? from 1889-1919, Dutch-born Edward W. Bok was awarded the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for his autobiography, The Americanization of Edward Bok."

He claimed to have become a certified officer in the P & O line and between 1873 and 1877 to have taken voyages to the Black Sea, the Arctic and China, and to have worked on a sugar plantation in British Guiana" (Howgego) In 1877 he presented himself to the British Consul at Jiddah, and informed him of his intention to visit Mecca. This he did under the name of Haj Mohammed Khan "wandering the streets quite freely in a bright white tunic and a huge turban". However, after a number of close calls he proceeded to Medina, spending "ten days in the city itself", subsequently returning Britain "to write up his journey, told in such an entertaining style that it amply compensates for the author's lack of conventional scholarly attainments". A remarkable account of an Englishman's experiences in the Hijaz.
