Jackson was given the use of a special train to assist him during his photographic tours. Often, Jackson¿s wife, Emilie, along with his friend from the Hayden surveys, Thomas Moran, and journalist, Ernest Ingersoll, accompanied Jackson on these journeys. Rare W. H. Jackson imperial-sized image. Deep tones and strong contrasts. W. H. Jackson is considered one of the foremost pioneer glass-plate photographers of the American West. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Works of Hubert Howe Bancroft (39 volume set)

      San Francisco: A. L. Bancroft and Company and the History Company, 1882-1891. Hardcover Hardcover.

'Bancroft's histories were produced in a literary factory in much the same fashion as Alexander Dumas produced his novels. Being the work of many hands and minds they are spotty in quality. Nevertheless his History of California is the best extant for it contains more material about the state’s past than any other historian has succeeded in amassing. Its faults are obvious, to be sure. It lacks an index; the portions dealing with the gold-rush are exceedingly meager; and Bancroft’s prejudices are apparent in many instances. However, the best evidence of its superiority is the fact that invariably research workers consult it first for information concerning California events.'--Zamorano 80, no. 3. One of the foundation works of any library on Western US history. 'As time passes and prejudice drifts into obscurity, these works become more strongly intrenched each year. For scholars and investigators, they will always remain the greatest source of authority'--Cowan and Cowan, Bibliography of the History of California, p. 33. A very nice set, in the original tan calf bindings, with morocco labels. Minor wear and tear to spine ends; previous owner's name stamp on endpaper and title page of each volume. Overall, a very pleasant set.

        RESOURCES OF BUTTE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA; CAPABILITY OF THE REGION CONTIGUOUS TO OROVILLE, THE COUNTY SEAT, FOR THE PRODUCTION OF SEMI-TROPIC FRUITS

      Oroville, Ca.: The Weekly Mercury, 1882. Tall octavo. Original printed salmon-colored wrappers. Small stain in lower edge of front wrapper, small chip in lower foredge of same. Else fine. A rare, early promotional for Butte County, emphasizing its potential as a fruit growing region. The text is an address by Jesse Wood, superintendent of schools, to the Butte County Teachers' Institute. He focuses on the agricultural potential of the county, its plentiful natural irrigation, and the variety of fruits that could be grown, and emphasizes the pleasant quality of life in the region. The attractive advertisements, which demonstrate the typesetting abilities of THE WEEKLY MERCURY, are for Oroville businesses. Not in the catalogue of the Norris collection, which was so strong in California local history, nor in Cowan, who lists only a later work by Wood on the same subject. OCLC locates two copies under differing title entries at the Bancroft Library and California State Library. Rare. ROCQ 1367. OCLC 58938608, 21703493. COWAN, p.692 (ref).

        Autograph Letter Signed, on paper, in English to Sen. George F. Edmunds.

      Washington, DC 8vo (25.5 cm, 10"). [16] pp.. 1882 Former Assistant Secretary of State Bancroft Davis (1822–1907), acting in his capacity as associate judge on the United States Court of Claims, writes to Senator George F. Edmunds regarding the status of American claims for Spanish reparation made following the armed revolt in Cuba in 1869, describing the complicated ensuing diplomatic negotiations between the United States and Spain. Davis urges Edmunds, a prominent Republican from Vermont, not to pursue a proposed inquiry, as any such formal proceeding might not only bring a halt to the generally favorable — if slow-moving — terms of the current agreement but also affect Secretary of State Hamilton Fish's efforts to avoid official American involvement in the question of Cuban independence. Written in Davis's own hand on black-edged mourning stationery in honor of President Garfield's death, the letter makes an interesting distinction between American citizens present in Cuba during the uprising and "honestly" investing their capital, vs. persons dishonestly sheltering beneath the American flag. Leaves tied together with black silk ribbon (now frayed) through one hole punched neatly in upper corner. Final page with inked content description in another hand. => An intriguing look at the political and financial realities behind America's international relations at this moment.

        A DICTIONARY OF THE OTCHIPWE LANGUAGE, EXPLAINED IN ENGLISH. PART I. ENGLISH-OTCHIPWE. A New Edition.... [bound with:] ...PART II. OTCHIPWE-ENGLISH...

      Montreal: Beauchemin & Valois, 1882. Contemporary black morocco-backed cloth [part I] and publisher's lettered wrappers [part II]. Very good. In a black morocco backed box. Provenance: Jesuit Mission Library, Upper Canada (ink stamp in part II). Scarce Chippewa dictionary, written by the famed Snowshoe Priest: complete with both parts. Baraga first issued his Otchipwe dictionary in 1853 in Cincinnati; the present second edition was issued between 1878 and 1880 after his death, with additional material and a rearrangement of the original text. A Roman Catholic missionary, Baraga arrived in Cincinnati in 1831, residing at the Ottawa Indian mission at Arbre Croche (present-day Cross Village, Michigan) where he mastered the Algonquian dialects of the local tribes. In 1835 he was transferred to the western shores of Lake Superior, to minister to the Chippewas. "During the long winters of this northern clime, Father Baraga applied himself to the study of the Chippewa language, the universal dialect of the Northwest. He prepared several religious books in this dialect, some of which were published in Paris, others in Detroit and Cincinnati. But his most useful works, still depended upon by all Chippewa scholars, are his THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL GRAMMAR OF THE OTCHIPWE LANGUAGE (Detroit 1850), and his DICTIONARY OF THE OTCHIPWE LANGUAGE (Cincinnati 1853)" - DAB. Living amongst Native Americans until his death in 1868, he became known as "the Snowshoe Priest" because of his extensive winter travels on snowshoes among the tribes of Michigan and Wisconsin.

Very good. Four lines from his poem, "The Garden of Eros." "creamy - meadow sweet whiter than Juno's throat' and odorous as all Arabia - Garden of Eros" Oscar Wilde April 21. Wilde arrived in America on January 2, 1882 ("too too" some reporters said in their account of the event) at the invitation of Richard D'Olyly Carte, to lecture as a spokesman for the Aesthetic Movement. He was 28 years old, but he told the American public he was 26. Ten months of intense media followed his every move. Audiences from coast to coast turned out to hear his sold out lectures. Although there is no year or place noted, this is believed signed on his 1882 American/Canadian tour. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Authentic Life of Billy, the Kid, the Noted Desperado of the Southwest, whose deeds of daring and blood made his name a terror in New Mexico, Arizona and Northern Mexico

      New Mexican Printing and Publishing Co, Santa Fe 1882 - 137pp. (pp.113-128 mispaginated 121-136). Six plates (including standing portrait frontispiece of the Kid). Includes the errata slip only sometimes found tipped to foot of p.121. Original pictorial wrappers, some wear and minor paper losses at edges of rear wrapper. Housed in a modern chemise and full black morocco box. One of the most famous landmark works in all Western Americana, here in the rare original wrappers. 137pp. (pp.113-128 mispaginated 121-136) plus six plates (including standing portrait frontispiece of the Kid). Includes the errata slip only sometimes found tipped to foot of p.121. Original pictorial wrappers. Minor wear and staining, rear wrapepr detached, a few small old tape shadows. Marginal staining to frontispiece and first few leaves, occasional spotting. Good. [IN WORK, to be priced 35,000] The most famous western outlaw book, and one of the rarest, the life of Billy the Kid by the man who killed him. Probably actually written by Ashmun Upson with the close collaboration of Garrett, this book is the foundation stone of the Billy the Kid legend. Dykes enumerates at length some of the inaccuracies of the narrative, and Adams is even more critical of particular points; but as Dykes' work admirably demonstrates, the whole point of the Kid legend is not so much to preserve the facts of the case, but to grow the legend itself, and it is from this book that the legend springs. "First genuine biography of America's most spectacular example of juvenile delinquency" - Howes. "Exceedingly rare" - Adams. Howes G73, "B"; Dykes, Kid 13; Adams Six-Guns 807; Graff 1515; Rader 1541; Streeter Sale 4287; Saunders 2916. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Kgl. Wasserbauinspektion Frankfurt a.M. Akten betreffend die Mainbrücken (gestrichen: und Fähre) bei Offenbach. Band 1" (vorgedruckter und handschriftlich ergänzter Deckeltitel).

      Offenbach Frankfurt am Main ua -1929 1882 - (36 x 23 cm). 319 mit Kopierstift nummerierte Aktenseiten (statt recte 325, gezählt 322). Verschiedene deutsche Handschriften meist in Feder oder Manuldruck, ferner Typoskripte oder Durchschläge. Mitgezählt 9 mehrfach gefaltete Pläne in kolorierter Federzeichnung (5) und verschiedenen Drucktechniken (4, davon 1 doppelt). Unter originalen Aktendeckeln geheftet. Die Straßenbrücke über den Main zwischen Offenbach-Kaiserstraße und Frankfurt-Fechenheim wurde im Zuge der Industrialisierung 1885-87 von Philipp Holzmann & Cie. erbaut. Laut vorgeheftetem handschriftlichen Index enthält das vorliegende Faszikel die Brückenakten der Wasserbauinspektion Frankfurt bis Ende 1929; die Akten bis zum Abriss und Neubau 1933/34 wurden in einem nicht vorliegenden Band 2 gesammelt. Die offizielle Zählung überspringt drei Aktenseiten, für die Seiten 271-274 ist die Entnahme zeitgenössisch vermerkt, die beiden ersten Seiten (laut Eröffnungsvermerk am Deckel vom 15. Dezember 1882) sind verlustig. - Der Band setzt am 20.12.1882 mit einem Schreiben des Großherzogl. Kreisbauamtes Offenbach an die Kgl. Bauinspektion Hanau zum Bauvorhaben ein. Es folgt der in Manuldruck vervielfältigte Bauvertrag zwischen der preußischen und hessischen Regierung einerseits, und Philipp Holzmann andererseits. Das Dokument vom 30.12.1883 umfasst 44 S. einschließlich aller Details zu Ausführung und Kosten der Brücke. Die Akten bis 1887 enthalten Korrespondenz (teils in Entwürfen) zum Bau sowie zur Mainregulierung, zu dieser u.a. eine Massen-Berechnung. 1891 ist ein lithographierter Faltplan der Offenbacher Zuwegung abgeheftet, ferner eine (mit Bildverlust durchgerissene) Weißkopie der Pläne zur Entwässerungs- und Treppenanlage der Brücke. - Die Jahre bis 1893 dokumentieren die geplante Anlage eines zusätzlichen eisernen Fußsteges über den Main beim Isenburger Schloss. Hierzu liegt ein umfangreicher Erläuterungsbericht von Holzmanns Oberingenieur W. Lauter in zwei Versionen vor, mit fünf mehrfach gefalteten kolorierten Federzeichnungen auf gelblichem Konzeptpapier. Die ebenfalls von Lauter abgezeichneten Pläne zeigen eine Totalansicht im Profil, Lage und Längenprofil, Strompfeiler sowie linkes und rechtes Widerlager. Das Vorhaben scheiterte jedoch am Anspruch der Länder auf das Brückengeld und so blieb die alte Seilfähre weiter in Betrieb. - Ab 1902 werden strittige Forderungen zum Brückengeld geregelt. Die Jahre 1922-29 enthalten vor allem Rechnungen für Unterhalt und Beleuchtung der Offenbacher Straßenbrücke; hierzu ein bereits 1907 gedruckter und gefalteter Profilquerschnitt der Brücke. 1928 wurde ein "Heberhaus" für den Einnehmer der Brückengelder errichtet. - Die Aktendeckel stark berieben, bestoßen und mit Ausbrüchen an Rücken und Rändern. Heftung zu Beginn defekt, die ersten Akten lose und mit Randläsuren, besonders der etwas überformatige Bauvertrag. Sonst ordentlich erhalten [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        å¤¢æƒ å µè¡›èƒ¡è ç‰ èªž [Muso byoe kocho monogatari - A Dreamer's Butterfly Tale].

      - Tokyo, Haishi Shuppansha 1882 [Meiji 15]. Two volumes 225x155mm, publisher's embossed yellow wrappers; a half-page, ten double page and five full page woodcut illustrations by Yoshitoshi. A tiny bit of nibbling to a couple of pages edges, a good fresh copy. Bakin's imaginary voyage fantasia was first published in 1809-10 and this is, I deduce, the second edition, revised or corrected from Bakin's own copy of the first edition; the first with Yoshitoshi's illustrations. Further editions followed thick and fast but apart from a partial translation in The Chrysanthemum (Yokohama 1882) I can't find an English version exists - particularly frustrating as Yoshitoshi's illustrations are magnetic. The surreal and grotesque are always hard to resist - and Yoshitoshi was a master among masters - and I don't think I've ever seen a better illustration, a better description, of the world of an opium smoker. The best account of the book I've found is in a 1909 letter from Minakata Kumagusu to the publisher Gowans & Gray who had approached him for a translation of a Bakin work of his choice. He chose this, "the only book that ever took me out of bed 30 minutes sooner than I wished to get up", and described it as something like Gulliver's Travels in which a man, decided there is nothing more to learn in his own land, determines to travel the world. He is told the means - a kite - in a vision and sets off to explore the lands of Infancy, Lust (high, medium and low grades), Drunkenness, Greed Trouble, Sorrows, Falsehood and Happiness. Unfortunately Gowan & Gray wouldn't spring for Kumagusu's fee and that was the end of that. At least we have Yoshitoshi.

Pavel Piasetskiy (1843 - 1919) was only a respected doctor but also talented artist and writer.

        Du délire des négations

      1882 - 35 pages Paris, V.-A. Delahaye et Lecrosnier, aux bureaux du progrès médical, 1882, in-8, 35 pages, maroquin noir moderne, dos lisse, titre doré en long, gardes de papier noir [Louise B.], Première édition du tiré à part de cet article paru dans les Archives de neurologie (n° 11 et 12, 1882). Jules Cotard (1840-1889), élève de Charcot et de Vulpain à la Salpêtrière, présentait en 1880 à la Société médico-psychologique ses observations sur une malade internée à la maison de Santé de Vanves, au cours d'une dissertation intilutée "Du délire hypochondriaque dans une forme grave de la mélancolie anxieuse". Deux ans plus tard, il approfondit son sujet dans "Du délire des négations" qui comporte, in fine, un tableau synoptique faisant un parallèle avec le délire de persécution. C'est le point de départ du "syndrome de Cotard", le seul auquel il a donné son nom, qui se caractérise par un état de mélancolie dépressive et d’hypocondrie conduisant à la négation, de la part du patient, de ses propres organes. Semelaigne II, p. 238. Bel exemplaire, enrichi d'un envoi de l'auteur à son ami de la faculté de Médecine de Paris, Adrien Proust, père de l'écrivain. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The tape is neatly done and holds the book together well, the covers have some marks and age toning , mainly to the bottom of the rear cover. Internally it is very nice and clean and hasn't been opened for a while. No restoration other than the tape applied many years ago. A hard year to find. Please see the large pictures.

        Outstanding and historically important ledger book

      Territory of Montana 1882 - 478 pages, folio (12.5 x 7.75 inches), original marbled boards (worn) re-backed with maroon linen, designated: "Minute Book No. 10," the proceedings of the 1st District Court, Territory of Montana, November 13, 1882 - April 11, 1886, the official record of hundreds of criminal and civil cases almost entirely in the hand of Theophilus Muffly - (1833 - 1898), a pioneer of the Territory who emigrated to Virginia City in December of 1864 and who was appointed to the bar by the United States Supreme Court. He was one of the lawyers present at the opening of the District Court of the Judicial District and subsequently served as Clerk of the Court, Attorney, Probate Judge, Justice of the Peace, and Police Magistrate. This remarkable offering provides great insight into the inner workings of the Territory's Judicial system, which on the surface amounted to little more than a glorified "good ol' boys club," with little concern given to the issue of "conflict of interest." There are instances whereby District Attorneys prosecuted cases one day and then represented defendants in the same court room the next. Thus, it created an environment whereby prosecutors opposed each other in some cases and then jointly prosecuted defendants in similar cases. In one instance, James E. Callaway (a signer of the 1884 Montana State Constitution) was appointed by the court to represent a defendant who could not procure counsel. Ordinarily this would not raise eyebrows except for the fact that Callaway was one of the most prominent District Attorneys in the court. Henry N. Blake, First Chief Justice of the Montana Supreme Court and arguably one of the most gifted jurists in the Territory had no qualms about handling an exorbitant amount of divorce cases, collecting his usual fee of $50.00. This was done while he was an Associate Justice serving on the Montana Territorial Supreme Court! One thing that is evident is that this ledger is a virtual who's-who of many of the most prominent figures in Montana history, including entries for lawmen who would eventually be murdered, lawyers who would become important legislators (including a Governor), and pioneers who would become founders of the State Constitution. Many of these people lived colorful and distinguished lives while others would be forever clouded by controversy. Of special interest to historians will be the very last cases of Justice Everton Judson Congers (1834 - 1918) -- a Civil War hero who sustained several wounds in combat but who will forever be remembered for his role in the capture of John Wilkes Booth. He was appointed to the Court in 1880 by his friend Rutherford B. Hayes despite being a confirmed alcoholic, morphine addict, and habitual gambler. He made many political enemies and in 1883 was suspended from the bench due to "incompetence, neglect of duty, and keeping companionship of low, vile people," a decision upheld by President Chester A. Arthur. Public outcry and an internal investigation later attributed his drinking and drug addiction to injuries sustained during the war. Congers was re-appointed to the bench but it was just one day before his term was set to expire and he was out of a job. Interestingly, in his later years, he relocated to Hawaii where he served as the attorney for Queen Liliuokalani. Congers presides over several interesting cases including an indictment for "marking and branding a calf with intent to steal same," of which he set bail at a staggering $500.00. On the other hand, a person convicted of "manslaughter with malice" received a generous sentence of six years incarceration. Charles W. Turner (1846 - 1907), a prominent attorney who appeared many times before Congers, might have summed it up best when he said, "He called them the way he saw them with little left to the imagination or reason." Turner became a law partner of Andrew F. Burleigh (1846 - 1907), who is also heavily represented in this book, and was subsequently murdered by a gunman in 1907.
