En dehors de la direction de son établissement et de l’arrangement des parties fines soit chez elle, soit dans les petites maisons de la noblesse, elle procure en appareilleuse consommée des femmes aux hommes, des jeunes gens aux « sodomistes » et des « succubes » (jouant le rôle passif dans les ébats amoureux féminins) aux « tribades ». Les lesbiennes les plus renommées se recommandent toutes auprès de Marguerite Gourdan pour avoir de jeunes et jolies filles, expérimentées ou débutantes.

EXEMPLAIRE DE DÉDICACE OFFERT PAR L'AUTEUR A SON AMI BIBLIOPHILE ANGLAIS JULIEN STIRLING. "à m. Julien Stirling, qui aime les livres plus profondément que les livres sterling, ce dont je l'honore. Sympathique souvenir. Octave Uzanne." EXEMPLAIRE ENRICHI SUR LE FEUILLET D'AVANT-PROPOS D'UNE JOLIE AQUARELLE ORIGINALE SIGNÉE PAUL AVRIL. Provenance : Bibliothèque Julien Stirling avec son ex libris gravé. Collection Bertrand Hugonnard-Roche (BHR 2015 - marqué au verso de la première garde blanche). Ce livre est, avec L’Éventail donné un an plus tôt, contrairement à l'image qui en a souvent été donnée de légèreté et de fanfreluche pour bibliophiles, une belle et intéressante étude sur ces indispensables ornements de la mode de ces dames à travers le temps. Uzanne, d'ailleurs très déçu voire marqué à vie d'avoir été considéré par trop de monde comme "le Monsieur de ces dames à l'éventail, à l'ombrelle, etc" (dixit Antoine Laporte, bouquiniste et auteur d'un violent pamphlet contre Uzanne publié en 1893), donnera en 1892 une édition bon marché, de format in-12, et sans illustration, dans laquelle il expliquera en préambule souhaiter donner à un public de lecteurs, et non plus à un public d'esthètes bibliophiles, ces textes pour pouvoir les apprécier à leur juste valeur. "cette fois-ci, ce n'est plus aux iconophiles que je m'adresse, mais à ces lettrés qui prétendent lire, apprendre et connaître." BEL EXEMPLAIRE DE DÉDICACE TRÈS BIEN CONSERVÉ DANS SA JOLIE ET FRAGILE RELIURE EN SOIE. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Rivers of Life. Or Sources and Streams of the Faiths of Man in all Lands; Showing the Evolution of Faiths from the Rudest Symbols to the Latest Spiritual Developments (Three volume set including separate folding chart)

      London: Bernard Quaritch/Subscriber's Copy, 1883. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Volume one title page shows Quaritch, 1883. Volume two title page states:  "Subscriber's Copy", 1883. The ultra rare subscriber's edition is considered to be the actual first issue so this is technically a mismatched set, but has probably been mismatched since day one since the paper toning and the overall exceptional quality of these volumes match in every other way. First Edition. Three Volumes (plus chart). Hardcover. Quarto. The two large text volumes are beautifully bound in half morocco over gilt edged marbled boards (by Bennett, New York). Top edge gilt. Marbled endpapers. [xli], 565, [vi], 659 pages, with index and errata list at end of each volume. Illustrated with 17 full page plates on card stock (all present), and 339 text drawings. 2 colored maps are present (a second century map of the world showing movement of early races and faiths, and a large foldout of Ancient India and adjacent areas showing early tribes, their sacred places, etc.). In addition to the text volumes is the very large, and often-missing, color Synchronological Chart of the Religions of the World representing different currents (Faith Streams) which is linen-backed and folded, housed in a separate folder inside a beveled slipcase covered in brown cloth. The chart measures 7.5 feet by 2.25 feet and is in excellent condition. The ?Explanatory Note to Chart of Rivers of Life?, originally issued as a loose sheet (again, often missing) has been neatly affixed to the back of one panel of the chart and can be perused easily without it going astray. Volume one has one tiny corner bump to rear board and there is one small closed tear to the large fold-out map of India. Two plates in volume two have light moisture stains to top of plate but are in the margins. Otherwise THIS SET IS IN FINE CONDITION with no markings of any kind. It is a very well preserved set and one is not likely to find a nicer or more attractive copy. A scarce title and exceptionally rare in this condition - even more so with the large chart included. This is Forlong?s massive work of comparative religion and the natural evolution of existing faiths, with its uninhibited sexual interpretation of religious rites and ceremonies throughout history. Forlong puts forth the idea that all major religions can be traced back to six main streams of worship which go back to the beginning of mankind?s history. The 6 streams are mainly solar and phallic in nature (Mr. Crowley, please pick up a white paging phone). Volume one details each stream: Tree Worship, Phallic Worship, Serpent Worship, Fire Worship, Sun Worship, and Ancestor Worship. Crowley did include this work in his list of "Books for Serious Study" (Curriculum of the A.A.) calling it "an invaluable text-book of old systems of initiation?. Volume two continues with chapters on the early faiths of Western Asia (being Chaldea and Assyria), faiths of Western Aborigines in Europe and adjacent countries, and faiths of Eastern Aborigines (Non-Aryan and Semitic).  The chief object of the accompanying Chart is to show the gradual evolution from rude material and elemental symbolisms to abstract and spiritualized conceptions. This is accomplished by streams of colors, one each for the six forms of worship mentioned above. It is interesting to see how many of the streams converge and travel together at certain periods throughout history, allowing one to detect patterns in relation to forms of worship, locales, and time periods. Along each stream are the names of gods and attributes, as they became prominent, etc. Two chronological columns (beginning in 10,000 B.C.) with text are present on either side of the chart. The left side shows principal characters, cities, and leading religious events (historical and mythical) throughout history. The column on the right shows dates of religious writings, temple constructions, dogmas, languages and other principal matters. The whole thing is like a board game of the gods. Its remarkable in every way. The amount of esoteric material that Forlong has presented here is staggering. And the sexual nature of it all goes beyond the work of Payne-Knight, and Jennings. An incredible amount of research went into the work. And though much of his research was gathered from his own travels and fieldwork (especially during his lengthy stay in India), he additionally relied on numerous authorities in his research. A long list of works cited (separated by subject) are at the beginning of volume one.

        [ALASKAN MISSIONARY] Innokentii, Mitropolit Moskovsky i Kolomensky po Yego Sochineniyam, Pismam i Rasskazam Sovremennikov [i.e. Innocent, Metropolitan of Moscow and Kolomna, His Works, Letters and Stories of Him by His Contemporaries]

      Moscow: Typ. of the Holy Synod, 1883. viii, 769, 14, xvi, [1] pp. 26,5x18,5 cm. With a lithographed portrait frontispiece and four lithographed plates. Period style quarter morocco, spine with raised bands and gilt lettered title. Period pencil markings and mild foxing of the text, otherwise a very good copy. First and only edition. First fundamental authoritative biography of Saint Innocent of Alaska (Saint Innocent Metropolitan of Moscow, born Ivan Veniaminov, 1797-1879) - a prominent Russian Orthodox missionary and enlightener of Alaska, «remarkable Russian cleric» (Lada-Mocarski, 111), the first Orthodox bishop and archbishop in the Americas. The biography was published just four years after his death by Russian historian and bibliographer Ivan Barsukov, and is mentioned in Lada-Mocarski (see below). Barsukov gives a detailed story of St. Innocent's life, work and travels in Russian America and Eastern Siberia, characterizes and quotes numerous reviews on his works, and includes valuable information on the history of the Russian-American Company and Russian Orthodox Church in Alaska. The biography is based on a wide range of original sources, including official correspondence between St. Innocent and Russian church officials (Mikhail, the Bishop of Irkutsk; Holy Synod and the Administration of the Russian-American Company), private correspondence to and from his family and Russian nobility (Admiral V.S. Zavoiko, the head of the Holy Synod count Protasov, countess Sheremetyeva, and others); recollections of his contemporaries (daughter, E.I. Petelina, priest A. Sulotsky); St. Innocent's published works (i.e. The State of the Orthodox Church in Russian America; Notes on the Islands of the District of Unalaska; Notes of Kolosh and Kadiak Languages); other works on Russian America (Tikhmenev «Historical Overview of the Formation of the Russian-American Company…», 1861); articles from contemporary periodicals (Irkutskiye Yeparkhialnye Vedomosti (i.e. News of the Irkutsk Diocese, 1879-1882), Dukhovnaya Beseda (i.e. Spiritual Conversation, 1863); Moskovskiye Univ. Izvestiya (i.e. News of Moscow University, 1868), Russian Archive (1881), and others). The Supplements include St. Innocent's letters to Russian writer, traveler and statesman Avraam Norov (1795-1869) written from New Archangel - those were some his first letters as the Bishop of Kamchatka, the Kuril and Aleutian Islands; there is also a speech given by Bishop Amvrosy of Dmitrov during St. Innocent's burial in Moscow, 5 April 1879. The illustrations include two portraits of St. Innocent, a view titled «A Pleasant Recollection of a church service performed by Innocent, Bishop of Kamchatka and the Aleutian Islands in the Palovo Channel of the Amur River in August 1858, in the presence of the officers and crew of steamboat 'Vostok', under command of Captain-Lieutenant Baron Schlippenbaсh» (after the original drawing by A. Kondyrev), and two leaves of facsimile of St. Innocent's letters (to his children and baroness Elizaveta Dohler). «The author's full name was Ivan Evseevich Popov-Veniaminov. The son of a sexton in a Siberian village, after the usual theological studies and intermediate churchly positions, he was ordained a priest in 1821 and two years later decided to become a missionary and spread the Gospel among the Aleutian natives. His first post was at Unalaska, where he built a church. In the course of some 30 years of devout and enlightened missionary work throughout the Aleutian and Kuril Islands, as well as in Kamchatka, he started schools, vaccinated the natives against smallpox, translated Russian liturgical books into native languages, etc. In 1857 (by then Archbishop of Kamchatka, the Kuriles and the Aleutian Islands), Veniaminov was called to St. Petersburg and in 1868 was mage Metropolitan of Moscow under the name of Innokentii. For a more complete biography of this remarkable man, see the 24-page The Life and Work of Innocent, the Archbishop of Kamchatka (San Francisco, 1897), which is based on a voluminous work (in Russian) by I.P. Barsukov entitled Innokentii, Mitropolit Moskovskii (Moscow, 1883)» (Lada-Mocarski, 107). Ivan Veniaminov went to Unalaska as a missionary priest in 1824 and spent there ten years. He «transliterated Unangan, the Fox Island dialect, into Cyrillic characters and with the help of Ivan Pankov translated the St. Matthew's Gospel, as well as many prayers and hymns. The work was continued at a later date by Father Ilya Tyzhnov, who produced the first and only printed part of the Holy Scripture in the variant of Aleut spoken on Kodiak Island». He served in Sitka in 1834-38 where he built a school for Tlingit children and composed textbooks for it. In 1840 he went to St. Petersburg and Moscow where he took monastic vows and was subsequently nominated bishop of Kamchatka, the Kuril and Aleutian Islands. In May 1842 «he set off on a tour of his diocese, visiting Unalaska, Atka, Unga, Pribilof, Bering and the Spruce Islands, Kamchatka and Okhotsk». In the 1840-1850s he made another three voyages around his diocese, in 1853 he took up permanent residence in Yakutsk; later he travelled across Eastern Siberia and the Far East to Blagoveshchensk, the Amur and Ussuri Rivers, and Kamchatka. On 6 October 1977, by a decision of the patriarch of Moscow and All Russia and the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church, acting on the official request from the Holy Synod of the Orthodox church in America, Veniaminov, Bishop Innocent, was numbered among the saints» (after Howgego, 1800 to 1850, V4). Ivan Platonovich Barsukov was a member of a noted family of Russian historians and bibliographers, known for his works on the history of the Russian church, Eastern Siberia, the Far East, Kamchatka, the Aleutian Islands and Alaska. After the biography of St. Innocent Barsukov published his collected works in 3 vols. (Tvoreniya Innokentiya, Mitropolita Moskovskogo i Kolomenskogo, M., 1886-88) and letters, also in 3 vols. (Pisma Innokentiya, Mitropolita Moskovskogo..., M., 1897-1901); biographies of Count Nikolay Nikolayevich Muravyov- Amursky (M., 1891, 2 vols.), and Dionisy, Bishop of Yakutsk (SPb., 1902).

First and only edition. Rare. OCLC locates the BL copy solely, apparently a copy in the National Library of India, together with an otherwise unrecorded edition of 1886; but no copy traced at auction. A remarkable photographically illustrated handbook for transport officers serving in India at the turn of the century. "In issuing a Manual on Transport packing and loading, in which is also briefly incorporated some of the more important subjects connected with Transport in the field, the endeavours of the compilers have been directed towards demonstrating in the simplest manner possible, how the maximum amount of carrying power may be obtained with the minimum amount of distress to the animal" (Preface). The well-illustrated, concise instructions cover the employment of mules, bullocks, camels, and elephants, and the humane approach suggested in the introduction is followed up with the inclusion in Chapter XI, "Veterinary Treatment in the Field" of "somewhat lengthy details", for which the authors apologise, pleading that "the variety of beasts of burden and their ailments with which the Transport Officer may have to deal renders it impossible to condense them any further without detracting from their utility". The advice "to stop a runaway elephant, blindfold him", however, would seem to be of somewhat limited utility. The photographic images portray the various pack animals under a wide range of loads, attended by their native handlers, and in a few cases with an armed, red-coated sergeant standing by. The lithographic plates show in detail the employment of the various knots, lashings and attachments required in the packing and loading processes. It is unlikely that any two serving officers of the time could muster comparable experience in the field to that of the authors. Lieut.-Col. Hayter "was employed in 1857-59 in Bengal, and served with the Shahabad Field Force under Brigadier Douglas, and accompanied Captain Place with a party of one subedar and 35 sepoys, and by stratagem surprised the rebel post at Maindoorah and captured 26 boats" (Hart's 1885). He served with the Eastern Bhutan Field Force in 1865-6 (Medal with Clasp), and also against the Naga Hill Tribes in 1867. In the Second Afghan war of 1878-80 he served in the Commissariat and Transport, and as Director of Transport at Kabul, "brevet of Lt.-Colonel, Medal, and received the thanks of the Governor General in Council for settling claims arising out of the campaign". He was similarly employed in the Mahsud Waziri Expedition of 1881, and more significantly was Director of Transport for the Indian Contingent in the Egyptian Campaign of 1882, present at the Battle of Tel-el-Kebir (mentioned in despatches, CB, Medal with Clasp, 3rd Class of the Medjidie, and Khedive's Star). Capt. Kelly, who is described on the title page as Deputy Assistant Commissary General for Transport in Madras subsequently served with the Burmese Expedition (1887-9) as Assistant Commissary General for Transport; was Brigade Transport Officer in the operations of the 3rd Brigade under Brigadier General Wolseley (MID, brevet of Lt-Colonel, medal with two Clasps); with the Poukhan Expedition in 1889 as Assistant Commissary General under Brigadier General Wolseley (Clasp) ; and in the operations in the Chin Hills and on the North East Frontier of Burma in 1891-2 as Principal Commissariat Officer under Major General Stewart. Authoritative, fascinating, and decidedly uncommon.

All described fully below. Gift inscription to front free endpaper verso, "To Christopher Pawley from his father Charles H Pawley, Archit. July 3rd 1920, Major VD, designer and originator of the Empire War Memorial". Binding rubbed in places, tips bumped and worn, hinges reinforced, half-title slightly marked, occasional cockling to interleaves with pasted material and a few markings to facing pages, remains a very good copy. First and only edition, the author's personal copy, with James Fergusson's extensive manuscript annotations, an autograph letter signed to Fergusson from controversial and pioneering archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann, and two highly significant original diagrams by Schliemann's assistant Wilhelm Dörpfeld. There are also several mounted engravings and photographic prints, these last reflecting Fergusson's early advocacy of photography in documenting archaeological findings. This copy brings together three of the most important figures in the rediscovery of Greek antiquities in the nineteenth century. James Fergusson (1808-1886) established himself with his work on Indian architecture, and became one of Victorian Britain's leading architectural historians, much admired by Ruskin. He and Schliemann (1822-1890), "often considered to be the discoverer of prehistoric Greece" (Ency. Brit.), were both amateur enthusiasts who funded their investigations through commercial fortunes. Wilhelm Dörpfeld (1853-1940), a trained architect, joined Schliemann at Troy in 1882, and subsequently assisted him at Tiryns from 1884 to 1885 and on later projects, his expertise proving an important check on his employer's often destructive methods and extravagant conclusions. In this late work Fergusson pays tribute to Schliemann's findings at Mycenae and Orchomenos, which showed that "the [so-called] Pelasgic form of arts and those of the Hellenes who succeeded them ? belong to the same age" (p. 54). Fergusson had in turn helped Schliemann in his excavations of Troy, Mycenae, and Tiryns, and in the dedication to Tiryns (1885) Schliemann described his colleague as "eminent alike for his knowledge of art and for the original genius which he has applied to the solution of some of its most difficult problems" (ODNB): John Murray had expressed reservations about the cost of printing, so Schliemann "sent a sketch of the palace plan to ? James Fergusson, a friend and adviser of John Murray, who from the beginning had responded enthusiastically to the news of the discovery ? He was influential in convincing Murray to take the book on the usual terms" (Traill, Schliemann of Troy, p. 239). On page 63 Fergusson prints a diagram of roof construction from an inscription regarding the Athenian naval arsenal at Philon, found at Piraeus by Dörpfeld. Dörpfeld's original ink diagram, sent to Fergusson by Schliemann while The Parthenon was in the press, is annotated with mathematical formulae absent from the printed reproduction. Fergusson describes the significance of the discovery, which "accounts for the the interval between the mutules of the Parthenon which was otherwise inexplicable", and shows also that a layer of clay would have been applied between the roof planks and tiles, which explains the thickness of the upper member of the Parthenon cornice. Dörpfeld's exacavations at Piraeus notably remain the sole proof for the size of Athenian triremes. On page 89 Fergusson discusses the conversion of the Theseion at Athens into a church as demonstrated by a sketch by Dörpfeld, the original mounted opposite, and shows how early Christians cut away "the three upper courses of the walls ? to allow of a vault being thrown across the nave, in place of the wooden roof that originally existed", and thus obliterated evidence for how light was originally introduced. Schliemann's letter dated Athens, 25 January 1883, thanks Fergusson for sending two drawings of the Temple of Eleusis, probably the originals of the wood-engravings in Fergusson's printed text, demonstrating that Eleusis was copied from an Egyptian design. Schliemann writes that he has forwarded them to Dörpfeld in Berlin, "who cannot find words to express his amazement at your ingenuity to make sketches of things unseen and to hit exactly the right theory. He is going to publish his lectures on the Scenotheke of Philon in the Annals of the German School here and promises you a copy of it". Schliemann also politely turns down Fergusson's invitation to Dörpfeld to visit England, owing to his approaching marriage (he married Anne Adler, daughter of his professor, in February). On the day he wrote the letter Schliemann held a grand ball at Iliou Melathron, his Athens mansion, three days before setting off to survey Thermopylae (see Traill, p. 227). Fergusson's lengthy annotations to two interleaves seem to be draft paragraphs for an intended second edition. To the leaf facing pages 104-5, which discuss inter the Parthenon's ratios, he adds that "it provided in its pediments - in triglyphs and in friezes - sculptures which were suddenly developed from archaic forms to read a degree of perfection that was never approached before & have never been equalled since" and argues that its cella was "evidently originally adorned with painting". On the leaf facing page 109 Fergusson describes how the Parthenon evinces the pagan emphasis on exterior over interior elaboration, the opposite of Christian architecture. On pages 49-50 he has scored about several paragraphs and individual, evidently in revision of the theory that the Parthenon was originally a laconicum for the Baths of Agrippa, while on page 98 he he has added a scale to two diagrams of Karnak (which form part of his evidence for his theory regarding Eleusis, above). Fergusson has additionally grangerised this copy with a proof pull of the wood-engraving of the pillar of Ephesus (facing p. 35), photographic prints of the Temple of Heliopolis (p. 42) and the Temple of Nepture at Paestum (p. 82), and a lithographed speculative view of the Parthenon cella (terminal blank).

The Griffon Bruxellois may refer to three different breeds, the Griffon Bruxellois, the Griffon Belge and the Petit Brabançon. Identical in standard except for coat and colour differences, in some standards they are considered varieties of the same breed, much like Belgian Sheepdogs. The three variations of this dog, the Brussels Griffon (Griffon Bruxellois), the Belgian Griffon (Griffon Belge), and the Petit Brabançon, all descend from an old type of dog called a Smousje, a rough coated, small terrier-like dog kept in stables to eliminate rodents, similar to the Dutch Smoushond. The little wire-haired dog in the foreground of the Jan van Eyck painting The Arnolfini Marriage is thought to be an early form of this breed. In Belgium coachmen were fond of their alert little Griffons dEcurie (wiry coated stable dogs) and in the 19th century, they bred their Griffons with imported toy dogs. Breeding with the Pug and King Charles Spaniel brought about the current breed type, but also brought the short black coat that led to the Petits Brabançon, which was originally a fault in the breed. The spaniels also brought the rich red and black and tan colour of the modern Griffon Bruxellois and Griffon Belge. The Griffon Bruxellois grew in popularity in the late 19th century with both workers and noblemen in Belgium. The first Griffon Bruxellois was registered in 1883 in the first volume Belgium's kennel club studbook, the Livre des Origines Saint-Hubert (LOSH). The popularity of the breed was increased by the interest of Queen Marie Henriette, a dog enthusiast who visited the annual dog shows in Belgium religiously, often with her daughter, and became a breeder and booster of Griffon Bruxellois, giving them international fame and popularity. Many dogs were exported to other countries, leading to Griffon Bruxellois clubs in England (1897)[3] and Brussels Griffon clubs in the U.S. (1945.) The First World War and Second World War proved to be a disastrous time for the breed. War time is difficult on any dog breed, and the recovering numbers after the First World War were set back by increased vigilance in breeding away from faults such as webbed toes. By the end of the Second World War, Belgium had almost no native Griffon Bruxellois left, and it was only through the vigilance of dedicated breeders (in the U.K. particularly) that the breed survived at all. The breed has never been numerous or popular, but had a brief vogue in the late 1950s, and now is generally an uncommon breed. There has been a recent increase in interest in the United States due to the appearance of a Griffon in the movie, As Good as It Gets, and also because of a general increase in interest in toy dogs.

        THE OLD SWIMMIN'-HOLE" AND 'LEVEN MORE POEMS. By "Benj. F. Johnson, of Boone" [pseud]

      Indianapolis: George C. Hitt & Co., 1883. Small octavo. Original printed parchment-like wrappers, printed in red. Faintest dust soiling to the wrappers, minute fleck on lower wrapper, but a fine copy. Enclosed in a half morocco slipcase and chemise (spine a bit darkened). First edition of the author's first book, collecting a number of "Hoosier" dialect poems which had seen earlier publication under the pseudonym in THE INDIANAPOLIS JOURNAL. The first edition consisted of one thousand copies, with the cost of publication split between Riley and Hitt, and the edition sold out in three months. Several facsimiles were produced in later years, the most faithful in 1909; this copy includes the features determinative of the proper first: a) title leaf a cancel, b) 'W' in 'William' present on p.41 in the first line of the 4th stanza, and c) horizontal chain lines uniformly spaced at 1" (scant). Seybolt did not have a copy of this regional rarity in his collection of first books, and the first 7 Gables First Books catalogue could muster only a rebound copy. BAL 16525. RUSSO, pp.3-6.

        A Short History of The Irish Volunteers. [Signed and Inscribed Association copy]. With a Preface by Eoin MacNeill.

      First and only edition. Volume 1 (all that was ever published). 12.5 cm x 18 cm. IX, 205 pages. Original Hardcover in Mylar. Very good condition. Inscribed by Bulmer Hobson to his friend Eimar Ultan O'Duffy: "Eimear O'Duffy from his friend Bulmer Hobson". A remarkable association - very rare ! John Bulmer Hobson (14 January 1883 8 August 1969) was a leading member of the Irish Volunteers and the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB) before the Easter Rising in 1916. Though he was a member of the IRB which had planned the Rising, he opposed its being carried out, and attempted to prevent it. He swore Patrick Pearse into the IRB in late 1913. [Wikipedia] Eimar Ultan O'Duffy (29 September 1893 21 March 1935) was born in Dublin and educated at Stonyhurst College in Lancashire and at University College Dublin. He and Bulmer Hobson caused disaster to the plans for thd 1916 Easter Rising when they told Eoin MacNeill that the Rising was planned for the next week MacNeill, nominal head of the Irish Volunteers, reacted by sending messengers around the country to call off the manoeuvres which were the cover for the Rising, and advertising in newspapers to cancel them. O'Duffy and Hobson went to the North. [Wikipedia]

Collectively these surveys filled in the map of the United States, using accurate scientific methods to chart the land and investigate not only its geology, but natural resources, wildlife, and plants as well. In conception these surveys followed on the Pacific Railroad Surveys of the 1850s and other army surveys of the pre- Civil War era, the difference being that they were largely staffed with civilian scientists. Often at odds with each other for government appropriations, they operated from right after the Civil War until 1879, when all were merged into the United States Geological Survey. Ferdinand V. Hayden was trained as a medical doctor, but began working on geological surveys as a young man, including the Army surveys in the Dakotas in the 1850s. After the Civil War, with the backing of the Smithsonian, he was able to get a government grant to conduct a survey in Nebraska. His ability and skillful political work firmly established the survey, which ultimately covered Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, the Dakotas, Kansas, Montana, and Idaho. Its activities were described in annual reports. The first three of these reports, covering 1867, 1868, and 1869, were originally published as part of other government reports, but were collected in 1873 in a single volume uniform with the rest of the series. From 1870 and the fourth season, these were issued as single volumes, generally the year following. Present here are: 1) FIRST, SECOND, AND THIRD ANNUAL REPORTS OF THE UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF THE TERRITORIES FOR THE YEARS 1867, 1868, AND 1869. Washington. 1873. Devoted to Nebraska and Colorado. 2) PRELIMINARY REPORT OF THE UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF WYOMING, AND PORTIONS OF CONTIGUOUS TERRITORIES.... Washington. 1872. Devoted to Kansas, Wyoming, Colorado, and eastern New Mexico. 3) PRELIMINARY REPORT OF THE UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF MONTANA AND PORTIONS OF ADJACENT TERRITORIES.... Washington. 1872. Mainly devoted to Wyoming and the line of the Union Pacific, but including the first year of work around Yellowstone. 4) SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF THE TERRITORIES, EMBRACING PORTIONS OF MONTANA, IDAHO, WYOMING, AND UTAH.... Washington. 1873. Primarily devoted to the Yellowstone area. 5) ANNUAL REPORT OF THE UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL SURVEY OF THE TERRITORIES, EMBRACING COLORADO.... Washington. 1874. Reports from throughout the West, although the season's field work focused on Colorado. By this time Hayden's annual appropriation from Congress was $75,000 for the season's field work. 6) ANNUAL REPORT OF THE UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL SURVEY OF THE TERRITORIES, EMBRACING COLORADO AND PARTS OF ADJACENT TERRITORIES.... Washington. 1876. Primarily Colorado. 1873 and 1874 brought major discoveries in the Colorado mountains and at Mesa Verde, which William H. Goetzmann calls the "capstone" of Hayden's career. 7) NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL SURVEY OF THE TERRITORIES, EMBRACING COLORADO AND PARTS OF ADJACENT TERRITORIES.... Washington. 1877. Again, mainly Colorado with some eastern Utah. 8) TENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL SURVEY OF THE TERRITORIES, EMBRACING COLORADO AND PARTS OF ADJACENT TERRITORIES.... Washington. 1878. Again Colorado, with particular focus on the archaeological discoveries of the survey, conducted by William H. Jackson. 9) ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL SURVEY OF THE TERRITORIES, EMBRACING IDAHO AND WYOMING.... Washington. 1879. Mostly Idaho, Wyoming, and western Montana. 10) TWELFTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL SURVEY OF THE TERRITORIES: A REPORT OF PROGRESS OF THE EXPLORATION IN WYOMING AND IDAHO…PART I. Washington. 1883. Devoted entirely to Yellowstone. This was the final report of the Survey before it became part of the USGS, and it was issued in two parts, with a portfolio of maps (the following two entries). 11) TWELFTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL SURVEY OF THE TERRITORIES: A REPORT OF PROGRESS OF THE EXPLORATION IN WYOMING AND IDAHO…PART II. Washington. 1883. 12) MAPS AND PANORAMAS TWELFTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL SURVEY OF THE TERRITORIES 1878 [binding title]. [Washington, D.C. 1878]. Original cloth portfolio, string ties. Eleven large folding maps. Goetzmann describes this as Hayden's final attempt "to encompass a systematic geological survey of the region." The list of maps is as follows: 1. Economic Map of Portions of Wyoming, Idaho and Utah; 2. Geologic Map of Portions of Wyoming, Idaho, and Utah; 3. Geologic Map of Part of Central Wyoming; 4. Geologic Map of Parts of Western Wyoming and Southeastern Idaho; 5. Geologic Map of Western Wyoming, Southeastern Idaho, and Northeastern Utah; 6. Geologic Map of the Yellowstone National Park; 7. Panoramic Views in the Wind River and Teton Mountains. 8. Part of Central Wyoming (Topographical); 9. Parts of Western Wyoming and Southeastern Idaho (Topographical); 10. Parts of Western Wyoming, Southeastern Idaho, and Northeastern Utah (Topographical). 11. General Geological Map of the Area Explored and Mapped by Dr. F.V. Hayden and the Surveys Under His Charge 1869 to 1880. Only the first seven of these maps is called for on the "List of Sheets" printed on the inside front cover of the portfolio, and in fact only ten maps are usually found in the portfolio. The eleventh map present here is rarely ever seen with the set, and usually sold on its own. All maps are strengthened on the verso with archival tape along the folds. 13) GEOLOGICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL ATLAS OF COLORADO AND PORTIONS OF ADJACENT TERRITORY. [New York]. 1877. First edition titlepage, per Schmeckebier. Complete, with sixteen double-sheet maps (the seven geological maps in color), two double sheets of cross-sections in color, a double sheet bearing three panoramas, and another double sheet bearing four panoramas (two of them single-sheet). One of the great cartographical accomplishments of the 19th century, and a centerpiece of the Hayden surveys, this extraordinary atlas was the first to transfer a portion of the West from geographical certainty to cartographical recording. Four key maps of the state show triangulation bases, drainage, economy, and general geology for the state. The state is then divided into six segments for six topographical and six geological maps. There are two plates of geological cross-sections. Finally, two sheets have seven magnificent panoramas executed by the topographical artist, W.H. Holmes, whose work is best known from Dutton's Grand Canyon atlas. Only odd volumes of these reports appear in the market, and sets are exceedingly rare, being almost impossible to assemble individually. The maps volume of the twelfth report and the elephant folio atlas are almost always sold separately. A rare chance to take the whole shooting match of this major landmark in the surveying of the Plains and the Rockies, especially Colorado and Wyoming.
