        Arizona Champion Newspaper July 3, 1886

      Flagstaff, Arizona. Very Good. 1886. Newspaper. A rare issue of the Arizona Champion newspaper with information on the infamous Aztec Land and Cattle Company, also known as the Hashknife Outfit. Chipped edges and one small hole in pages, some penciled content notes on top margins. Four full columns on the last page are paid advertisements of the company concerning the legal title of its land, over two million acres in Arizona.

(July 17, 1828, Kustovichi, Grodno Region, Russian Empire (now Belarus)) - May 6, 1915, Dresden) was a Russian astronomer and public figure. Engelhardt was member of the wealthy and famous Engelhardt family. He was graduated from the St. Petersburg School of Law in 1847, then served in the 1st and 5th departments of the Senate. In 1853 he left government service and devoted himself to studying astronomy. In 1875, Engelhardt settled in Dresden and built himself an observatory with his own money, where he worked alone without assistants until 1897. His main work was researching comets, asteroids, nebulae, and star clusters. In 1870 he completed the observation of 50 comets and 70 asteroids. Turning to star clusters, in 1883 he completed a catalog of more than 400 nebulae. Beginning in 1886, he observed 829 stars in Bradley's directory to determine if they had companion stars. In the late 1890s, deteriorating health forced Engelhardt to give up personal observing, and he gave all his equipment to Kazan University, of which his friend and fellow astronomer Dmitri Dubyago was rector. The university built an observatory to house the equipment, which was opened in 1901 and named for Engelhardt from 1903 until 1931. Until the end of his life, Engelhardt took an active part in the construction and organization of the new observatory, and in his will gave Kazan University all his money and property, to be used for the development and maintenance of the observatory. Engelhardt was awarded an honorary doctorate by Kazan University in 1889, and in 1890 he was made a corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences. By decision of the XIV Congress of the International Astronomical Union, the Moon crater Engel'gardt was named in Engelhardt's honor." wikipedia . Very Good. Hardcover. First Edition. 1886.

        HMS Colossus - First Open-Hearth Steel Hull Battleship

      Malta, 1886. Journal of 47 fine manuscript engineering drawings of British Battleship HMS Colossus (1882-1906) which was commissioned to the Mediterranean Fleet the same year, 42 of which are tinted in watercolour, all with detail caption, design annotations and measurements, and featuring improved design inventions being tested for the first time by the Royal Navy. Front pastedown signed and dated by the artist, Arthur R. Coward, 7 September 1886. Oblong 8vo. Brown paper over calf boards with working metal clasp. Volume measures approximately 25 x 18,5 cm. Together with one (1) additional drawing on waxed draft paper, also coloured and inscribed, measuring approximately 31 x 13 cm. A skillful work. The artist may be Arthur Charles Coward, O.N. 214376, attached to the Chatham Division, whose rank was Yeoman of Signals, and who "for services on the Mediterranean Station" received the Distinguished Service Medal in 1917. He may have been a midshipman on the vessel, and may also be a relation or a son of Lieutenant Blanchard K. J. Coward, who was associated with HMS Colossus in 1888, and is listed in the Royal Navy's 1888 Directory of Officers at the Malta Garrison as such. Further research is warranted to confirm. HMS Colossus (1882) exemplifies a pivotal change in shipbuilding, and monumental implementation of improved steelworks, at the dawn of the Second Industrial Revolution. A positively stellar showcasing of the Royal Navy's first battleship steel hull, thirty-six (36) diagrams illustrate the construction of the hull, including the deck. Segment by segment, each drawing with measurements, steel weight and important calculations, the core of HMS Colossus comes together in these pages. The "backbone of the ship," more technically termed the "Flat Plate Keel," is the first drawing in this volume. Forming the base of the ship's hull, the structural cornerstone of the vessel, the keel plate aids with strengthening and stability, with weight distribution during loading. Impeccable and highly detailed drawings taking us to the superstructure, show the construction of the hammock berthing quarters, its side scuttle (porthole), and some of its plating. Following this are illustrations of the ship's manhole systems, an rectangular watertight scuttle, the coaling scuttle, and a secure hinged door. With exacting precision he then draws an 8-inch non-return valve and a 12-inch screw down valve for the main drain, screw down non-return valve, critical for preventing back flooding. Evidently a work in progress, the last drawing is in pencil, non-coloured and begins to illustrate a ventilation valve. These drawings were made only weeks before HMS Colossus was sent on its first commission, making this an invaluable, singular, primary source view of a pioneering battleship. Colossus represented a number of firsts in British naval shipbuilding: •The use of open-hearth steel for the hull's construction •Compound protection rather than iron armor •A new design of breech loading main guns Colossus also represented the end of some design concepts, being among the last of the ships protected by an armoured citadel. In 1879, construction began on the Colossus and her sister ship Edinburgh, the first two steel-hulled British battleships, both of which were constructed of open-hearth steel, which had only been recently introduced. HMS Colossus took over seven years to complete. She was launched in 1882, running speed trials in January 1884 and gun trials in July 1885. She was commissioned at Portsmouth 13 April 1886 for Particular Service, in August 1866 joined the Channel fleet for tests, and detached for Special Duties in October. After being formally completed on 31 Oct 1886, she was sent to the Mediterranean in April 1887 where she remained for six and a half years. HMS Colossus was one of the first, if not the first, modern battleship. She had several features which would become standard for all gun warships, as late as the Second World War, including all steel construction, a main battery of breech loading major caliber guns 10 inches or greater mounted in turrets, and full propulsion by steam engines - instead of a combination of steam and sails as was common in the mid-19th century. In the mid-19th century, as the final stage in the evolution of fast commercial sailing ships, the technique of composite ship construction (wooden planking over a wrought iron frame) emerged. In 1856, British inventor Henry Bessemer (1813-1898) announced a new steel making process, patenting a process for cheaply and rapidly converting pig iron into steel, thus further accelerating the Industrial Revolution. Huge demand for steel rails for railroad construction sustained the industry through a depression that started in 1873, however Bessemer's early open-hearth steel was not of suitable quality for the Navy. Thus, from their Pembroke shipyard, Siemens-Martin began producing a stronger open-hearth steel for the Admiralty. This new shipbuilding material was first tested on the Navy's smaller vessels, specifically six of the Comus class steel corvettes, which were effectively small cruisers. The advantages being well proven, beginning in 1879 open-hearth steel hulls were made for the construction of HMS Colossus and HMS Edinburgh, the Royal Navy's first battleships with steel hulls. The Royal Navy's last composite built ship, the sloop Blonde, was launched in 1889, and the following year saw the final end of the use of wood for ship construction when the training brig Mayflower was launched. The advantage of steel over iron is greatly improved strength, open-hearth steel being 25 percent stronger than wrought iron. A ship's hull constructed of open-hearth steel weighed half of one of comparable dimension and tonnage built of wood. The artist is not to be confused with Arthur William Thomas Coward (1865-1948), the highly respected racing skipper of the sailing barge 'Hydrogen' from 1912 to 1932. 'Hydrogen' was a coast barge that carried tar and oil from the Thames and Medway to Scotland. In 1912, Arthur Coward was offered shares in the barge and became her skipper, a position he held for 20 years.

        Nischeta filosofii. [i.e. French: "Misère de la Philosophie", i.e. English "The Poverty of Philosophy"].

      Zheneva [Geneva], Osvobozhdenie truda, 1886. 8vo. In the original printed wrappers. Wrappers with a few nicks. Spine lacking a bit of paper and book-block split in two. Internally fine and clean. XXXI,154, (6) pp. The exceedingly rare first Russian translation of Marx's early work, intended to clarify his own position regarding "the theory and tactics" of a truly "revolutionary proletarian movement", thereby laying the foundation for and anticipating many of the thoughts presented in his most famous work "The Communist Manifesto". The "Misère de la Philosophie" is "a pivotal work in Karl Marx's intellectual and political development." (Roberto, Karl Marx, Progress and World History).The 'Communist League', the political circle around Marx, regarded the present work as a key part of their programme, even after the publication of "The Communist Manifesto" in 1848. Marx himself "recommended The Poverty of Philosophy as an introduction to Capital". (Roberto, Karl Marx, Progress and World History)In order to get the manuscript past the government censors, Marx wrote the book as a commentary to Proudhon's 'What Is Property?', but essentially Marx here presented his theory on how to mobilize an entire class. Whereas the utopians believed that people must be persuaded one person at a time to join the socialist movement, the way a person must be persuaded to adopt any different belief, Marx knew that people would tend to act in accordance with their own economic interests. Thus, appealing to an entire class (the working class in this case) with a broad appeal to the material interests of that class, would be the best way to mobilise the broad mass of that class in order to create a revolution and change society.Proudhon emphasized the social relationships emerging from private property, and the tendency of economic development to produce a propertyless proletariat in ever increasing numbers, ideas which Marx found compelling. Marx's praise of Proudhon was not limitless, however, as he felt Proudhon did not fully understand the way in which wages and money were themselves forms of private property.The present Russian translation was published by 'Osvobozhdenie truda' (The Emancipation of Labour), the first Russian Marxist organization, led by Plekhanov. Engels was very fond of the group and wrote to Vera Zasulich, Menschevik, writer and revolutionary: "It will be a great day for Marx's daughters and me when the Russian version of Misère de la philosophie comes out. It goes without saying that it will be a pleasure to me to place at your disposal all the material that may be useful to you for that purpose."Osvobozhdenie truda was the first Russian Marxist group founded by Plekhanov in Geneva in 1883. The group did a great deal to translate Marxist works into Russian and distribute them, and later became the major adversary to the ideology of Narodism. Lenin later wrote that the group "laid the theoretical foundations for the Social-Democratic movement and took the first step towards the working-class movement in Russia." The group was later followed by the League of Struggle for the Emancipation of the Working Class."The Poverty of Philosophy is a pivotal text in modern European intellectual history." (Roberto, Karl Marx, Progress and World History).

        CYNTHIA ANN PARKER: THE STORY OF HER CAPTURE

      Printed For The Author, 1886., St. Louis - First edition. Cloth, 80 pp., 3 plates, preface. Born in Clark County, Illinois in 1827, Cynthia Ann Parker came to Texas in 1832 with her family, who built Fort Parker near present-day Mexia, Texas. In May of 1836, the carelessly defended Fort was attacked by an Indian party comprised of several hundred Comanches, Kiowas, and Kichais (Caddo). The Indians killed 5, and captured 9 year old Cynthia Ann Parker and 4 others. The Indians split up 6 days later and Cynthia Ann was taken by a Quahadi Comanche party beginning 25 years of life among the Comanches. At various times from 1840 through the 1850's Cynthia Ann was seen by various traders who all reported that she was happy and fully content living with the Comanches. During the 1840's she married Peta Nocona, a warrior who had led the attack on Fort Parker. Their marriage produced 2 sons and a daughter. One son, Quanah Parker became the last great Chief of the Comanche tribe. In December, 1860, Cynthia Ann was "rescued" when a Ranger force led by Sul Ross attacked a Comanche village at the Battle of Pease River. Cynthia Ann and her daughter were taken by the Rangers to Camp Cooper where they were held until they were positively identified by Cynthia Ann's uncle, Col. Issac Parker. For the next 10 years she lived a sad and miserable life of continual efforts by others to rehabilitate her into white frontier life. On numerous occasions Cynthia Ann tried to run away to rejoin her husband and sons, but was never successful. She died of influenza in 1870, weakened by self-imposed starvation. This very scarce work is a classic of tragedy on the Texas Frontier. A bright, attractive copy in near fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

      London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1886.. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.141; [1], blank. Bound without the advertisement in half dark blue calf with raised bands, marbled sides, edges and endpapers and red title label to spine. One or two tiny marks within; externally a little rubbed. Very good indeed. The classic mystery crime novel/ horror story (or Crawler as Stevenson called it), inspired by the case of the Edinburgh body snatchers Burke and Hare, was written in just three days, although it was shelved by the author for three years as he considered it too disturbing for publication. Jekyll and Hyde is a chilling masterpiece work; a brilliantly suggestive, resonant study of human duality by a natural storyteller.

        Sherman, Enjoying People and Traveling, Writes to Friends in St. Louis

      New York, NY 1886 - Autograph Letter Signed, to Mrs. Julia Turner. New York, NY, September 29, 1886. 3 pp., octavo. Complete Transcript New York, Sept 29, 1886Dear Mrs Turner, I got back to New-York last night and found your kind invitation to attend Delphines wedding Oct. 6th. I congratulate you & her as I believe Col Heyl to be an honorable man, and good soldier just such a man as Henry Turner loved. I wish them both a long life of unalloyed happiness.I cannot possibly come out at that date, but have promised some friends to be at St. Louis Oct 30th and will try to come out to the Shelter to see you all. My last visit to St Louis was only en route. I saw Charles & Lucas and sent by messages to you, but neither told me that Delphine was to be married so soon.Mrs. Sherman, Lizzie & I are at the 5th Avenue Hotel where Rachel will join us Friday. We four will spend the winter at that most comfortable hotel and thereafter be governed by circumstances. I doubt if we ever again will reside in Saint Louis, but if my present health & strength continue it is likely I may make frequent trips during which I shall endeavor always to see you and yours. We have shared together so many days & events that I hope we shall continue the best of friends to the end. Surely will I always cherish the memory of the many happy days I have spent under your roof.Give to Delphine the assurance of my affection, and to Col Heyl my congratulations that he is about to ally his fortunes to a family as nearly perfect as any on this Earth, and that I shall watch with jealous interest his progress upward in his most honorable profession. With profound respect Your Friend, W. T. ShermanHenry S. Turner (1811-1881), was a St. Louis banker and confidante of William Sherman for more than four decades. Turner graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1834. After studying cavalry tactics in France for two years, he returned and married Julia M. Hunt in St. Louis. Appointed captain in the 1st U.S. Dragoons in 1846, Turner was promoted to major for meritorious conduct at the battle of San Pasqual in the Mexican War. Turner resigned his commission in 1848, and turned to business pursuits in St. Louis. When Sherman left the army in 1853, Turner offered him a job as a banker to represent the St. Louis firm of Lucas, Turner & Company in San Francisco, California. In 1880, Sherman referred to Turner as his "old and most dear friend." Turner's home was called "the Shelter."Edward M. Heyl (1844-1895), was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and joined the army in 1861 as a private in a Pennsylvania cavalry regiment. He rose through the ranks to Captain. In November 1863, he was captured by Confederates and held as a prisoner for six months. He was honorably mustered out in 1864, and returned to the army in 1866, rising to the rank of colonel in 1889. He was engaged in several battles with Native Americans in Texas during the 1870s, though his career was not without controversy, and he seems not to have merited Sherman's praise. Deeply racist, he resented leading African American "buffalo soldiers" in battles against Native Americans. In March 1867, a drunken Heyl opened fire on his own African American troops encamped near San Antonio, Texas. His actions ignited a mutiny that left two of his command dead and several others court-martialed and imprisoned; Heyl escaped with a reprimand. He married Delphine Turner in 1886 in St. Louis, Missouri. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.William T. Sherman (1820-1891), a West Point graduate and Mexican War veteran, served as a corps commander under General Grant in successful campaigns down the Mississippi and in Tennessee. He then took command of the western armies when Grant was reassigned to the Virginia theatre. He was both recognized and criticized for his tactics of "scorched earth" and "total war," evidenced by his capture of Atlanta and "March to the Sea" through Georgia.

Le troisième discours, prononcé le 4 juillet 1872 à un banquet donné au Grand-Hôtel pour la fête nationale des Etats-Unis ; Le dernier (et bref) discours consiste en l'allocution prononcée lors de la cérémonie de pose du premier rivet de la statue de la Liberté par M. Morton, ministre des Etats-Unis aux ateliers, 25 rue de Chazelles, le 24 octobre 1881. C'est Edouard Laboulaye qui lança la souscription pour l'érection de la statue de la Liberté, mais il mourra un avant avant l'élévation de la statue à New-York. Autant les "Discours populaires" sont communs, autant le présent titre est rare. Bon état (rouss., dos lég. passé) pour cet exemplaire de toute rareté.
