California]
[Oakland: Elliot & Co., 1885. Lithographed broadside, 21 1/4 x 27 inches. Minor surface wear, a few repaired tears. Very good. Archivally mounted. A rare real estate promotional bird's-eye view of Santa Rosa, Ca. in the late-19th century, an era of rapid development in California. The view is centered on the downtown city center, showing undeveloped farm land to the north and the Mayacama Mountains in the distance (with Mt. St. Helena identified). The top and bottom borders also contain vignette images of seventeen Santa Rosa businesses, residences,a nd government buildings. These include the office of the Sonoma DEMOCRAT newspaper, the New York Hotel, the Santa Rosa Planing Mills, the Young Ladies College, Berka's Lumber Yard, the Republican Steam Printing House & Book Bindery, and the Court House, City Hall, and Library. A key printed below the title identifies fifty-two additional buildings. In addition, a four-car train can be seen steaming through the western part of the town, just north of Santa Rosa Creek. The view was likely commissioned by real estate broker and California business directory publisher Guy E. Grosse, whose advertisement can be found at the lower left corner. Grosse likely had this view created in an attempt to sell the empty land at the north end of the city designated as the "McDonald Addition." The recent wildfires in northern California blazed through this area and destroyed much of the developments there, but did not affect the downtown area as seen here. OCLC records just two copies of this exceedingly-rare view, at the American Antiquar … [Click Below for Full Description]

1885. William T. Sherman Talks Politics, Religion, and Princeton-Yale Football with a Suitor "Rachel went to Princeton last week. Thanksgiving Day - to witness the ball play - the day was horrid and she has been under the weather ever since having taken cold." Sherman, during an affair with a young widow, advises her on handling her teenage daughter: "Let her play her own game...Tell her to take her own way and you choose yours. If she becomes a nun she can do no harm and is dead to the world" while criticizing the power of the Catholic Church. He also muses about his own mortality, complains that he "shall not stay long" at his Senator-brother John's home because "there is too much politics there to suit my taste," and relates that his daughter caught a cold at the Yale-Princeton Thanksgiving Day football game. WILLIAM TECUMSEH SHERMAN. Five Autograph Letters Signed to Mrs. Mary Audenried, widow of Sherman's former Chief of Staff. 18 pages, April 21, 1885 - February 8, 1887.

Sherman (1820-1891), a West Point graduate and Mexican War veteran, served as a corps commander under General Grant in successful Union campaigns down the Mississippi and in Tennessee, then took command of the western armies when Grant was reassigned to the Virginia theatre of war. His capture of Atlanta and subsequent "March to the Sea" through Georgia, was followed by a swift campaign north through the Carolinas to force the surrender of the last major Confederate army. He was Commanding General of the U.S. Army from 1869-1883. In 1850, 30-year-old Will … [Click Below for Full Description]

Calmann Lévy, 1885. chagrin bleu de nuit à volutes incrustées de maroquin azur, rouge et beige sur le premier plat, décor répété sur le dos, titre sur le plat en lettres de maroquin de couleurs, gardes de couleurs à la cuve, tête or, non rogné, couverture Édition originale. Un des très grands succès du théâtre parisien de la fin du XIXe - avec Les Corbeaux, l'autre chef-d'œuvre d'Henri Becque. Irrésistible et spectaculaire reliure Art-déco de Marguerite de Felice, exécutée dans les années 1920. Professeur à l'école de l'Union des Arts Décoratifs dès son ouverture en 1894, Marguerite de Felice signa ses premières reliures en 1900 - se spécialisant dans ce qu'on appelait alors le "cuir d'art". Elle réalisa elle-même ses extraordinaires papiers à la cuve qui participent à sa réputation. En 1920, elle ouvrit un atelier à Neuilly avec Melle Picard, continuant ses cours à l'école de la rue Beethoven. Elle obtient une médaille d'or à l'exposition des Arts décoratifs de 1925 (Flety, page 70).

Philip Gilbert Hamerton (1834 - 1894), was an English artist, art critic and author. His first literary attempt, a volume of poems, was unsuccessful, leading him to devote himself for a time entirely to landscape painting; he camped out in the Scottish Highlands. Discovering after a time that he was more suited to art criticism than painting, he moved to France, where he produced Painter's Camp in the Highlands (1863), which was very successful and prepared the way for his standard work on Etching and Etchers (1866). In the following year he published Contemporary French Painters, and in 1868 a continuation, Painting in France after the Decline of Classicism. He became art critic to the Saturday Review, then he proceeded to establish an art journal of his own, The Portfolio, a monthly periodical, each number of which consisted of a monograph upon some artist or group of artists, frequently w … [Click Below for Full Description]

Grant U.S
New York: Charles L. Webster, 1885. 2 volumes. First edition. With 49 maps and illustrations, including two steel-engraved frontis-portraits and two etched views, all with tissue-guards. Also with the dedication from Grant in holograph facsimile. 8vo, publisher's original green cloth lettered in gilt and with large gilt medallions on the upper covers, the lower covers with gilt medallions, the spines gilt lettered and with the "Shoulder Strap" decorations in gilt and black, with floral endpapers. 584; 647, index pp. An especially bright and handsome set, unusual in its very fine condition, internally clean and very fresh, the textblocks firm and solid, hinges strong, the green cloth unfaded and sturdy, an unusually well preserved and pleasing set with only the most minor evidence of age or shelving. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION OF 'THE FINEST MEMOIRS OF WAR EVER PENNED'. An important historical memoir of the Civil War, arguably the most important, and the best thing that Grant ever wrote. General Norman Schwartzkopf has recently called this the finest memoir of war experiences that has ever been penned. Collectible copies of these books are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain. The earliest days of the Civil War were a hard lesson in hubris for the Union Army. After the appointment of Grant to overall command of the Union forces, the war would quickly turn to their favor. Probably the most important book on the American Civil War, and in many respects a masterpiece of American literature. David Eicher's useful summary includes this fine judgment: "Grant … [Click Below for Full Description]
