      D. B. Spooner & Co., Photographers, Springfield 1858 - First Edition. Title page and "statistics" (four pages) plus 62 portraits w/tissue guards and interleaved blank leaves (most with signatures or inscriptions from the sitter). Frontispiece engraving of the college signed: "Thos. Chubbuck, Engr. Springfield, Ms." and "Published by J.S. & C. Adams" Statistics leaf signed in print on verso "Samuel Bowles and Company, printers." 4to. 9 1/2 x 12 inches. Decorated leather binding (worn at extremities). "Andrew Josiah Clapp" in gilt on front cover [his album]. "Portraits | Amherst | 1858" in gilt on spine. Two library stamps ("Southampton Public Library") crossed out with no other markings. Photographs are salt prints, oval format, approximately 4 ¾ x 6 inches. Tonality varies, with scattered fading and foxing. Boards. Leaf titled "Statistics" has a list of each student, residence, and when they entered and left college (and if graduated). It also notes that there are 84 total, 67 who entered at the beginning of the Course, 1 who died, and 51 who graduated. The Statistics page is dated Amherst College, August 12th, 1858 and printed by Samuel Bowles and Company.Portraits one through nine are identified faculty members. The next portrait appears to be a faculty member, but we haven't been able to identify him. The second faculty portrait, and probably best known of the sitters, is Edward Hitchcock, with "best wishes from your friend Edward Hitchcock" in manuscript on opposite page.Portraits number eleven through sixty-two are identified students from Amherst (with the exception of the 21st member who we haven't been able to identify). There are a few additional signatures without portraits included in the rear.Owner Andrew Josiah Clapp was a Congregational minister, was born in Massachusetts in 1833. He graduated from Amherst College in 1858, and from Andover Theological Seminary in 1861; was ordained February 19, 1862, and was at Shutesbury, Massachusetts, from 1862 until his death, September 13, 1863. See Trien. Cat. of Andover Theol. Sem. 1870, page 218.In our experience, salt print era photograph albums are much scarcer than the albumen era albums. Often the graduates had to pay for the portraits they wanted in the album, and hence different albums have different contents. With the printed title page and "statistics" leaf in this album, we aren't sure if this is the case or not. It is however, a rare album, with only one copy in OCLC/Worldcat as of this writing, at the American Antiquarian Society (theirs with 63 portraits). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         SPEECH OF HON. ABRAHAM LINCOLN, DELIVERED IN SPRINGFIELD, SATURDAY EVENING, JULY 17, 1858. [caption title]

      [Springfield, Il, 1858. 8pp. printed in double columns. Single folded sheet, dbd. Minor foxing, small chip to bottom edge throughout, costing just a few words each page. Good. The only separate printing of this address given by Lincoln at Springfield, Illinois. Lincoln's speech, which preceded his debates with Douglas, puts forth the great themes that marked his political philosophy during the last ten years of his life. Urging that slavery be placed on course for "ultimate extinction," he repeats his "House Divided" warning, first given at the State Republican Convention a month earlier. He insists that the Kansas-Nebraska bill was "the beginning of a conspiracy" to nationalize slavery. Attacking Douglas, and defending himself against the charge that he would "invite a war of sections," he stands on "the principles of our Declaration of Independence." Though blacks are not the equal of whites "in all respects," the Declaration "does mean to declare that all men are equal in some respects; they are equal in the right to 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.'" Most significantly, "In the right to put into his mouth the bread that his own hands have earned, he is the equal of every other man, white or black." A rare printing of Lincoln's monumental July 1858 Springfield speech. MONAGHAN 12. BYRD 2960.

         Civil War

      1858-1863. Two letter-books containing copies of letters on lightweight paper written from Paris, France, by J.K. Smyth of Henderson Smyth & Co., 1858-1863. The letters give an insight into financial and business transactions between Europe and America just prior to and during the early years of the Civil War. Some of the letters concern a house Smyth is having built in New York. His architect is Calvert Vaux who, with Frederick Law Olmsted, had just designed Central Park. The first letter-book, is 417 separate pages, 8.5 " x 11" and contains copies of business (Henderson Smythe & Co.) and personal letters written from Paris between May 27, 1858 and July 25, 1863. It is signed "J.K. Smyth" on a label on the cover. Excerpts from the first book: (to Henderson, 1858) "in regard to the contact or license you signed in London with Goodyear which if it should be put forward by Goodyear as his agent, as he interprets it - it might in such case be disowned by the Stockholders of the company as not being a legal document binding on them" (to Dr. Edward G. Ludlow, N.Y., 1858) "I enclose herewith a sketch of my Harlem lots…they are now entirely free of encumbrances. I think they are very desireably situated if the central Park succeeds and more especially if they make the Harlem River navigable so as to connect the Hudson & east River their value will be much enhanced" Central Park was designed in 1858; Harlem borders Central Park on the north. (to Henderson) "Mr. Hutchinson, Wagner & myself may individually purchase the large property at Manheim and fit it up for a rubber factory…I would rather have by a great deal the Golverin than the French market especially if we are obliged to share it with Rattier who make better shoes than the Cohens" (to Dr. Ludlow) "Property on Broad way below 10th St will always be very valu[able] for Hotels and wholesale Stores as also cross Sts near Broad way in the neighborhood or as far down as Canal St or perhaps a few streets higher" (to Henderson) "On account of the collision between the Cunard boats we have no mail from New York this week." On August 17, 1858, nine days before this letter, Cunard cabled from New York to London about the collision of "Arabia" and "Europa," the first telegraphic message to report a collision at sea. (to Dr. Ludlow) "I also enclose copy of mem you sent me some time ago of the land patents recd by Henderson Smythe & Co they I suppose are for our first purchase in Minnesota…it is time the patents were made out for all our purchases in western lands." (to Lee in 1861) "The unfortunate state of affairs in America of course been hard upon my interests there which altogether is large but as I am out of debt I cannot be prostrated as many others will be. I have to finish my house…and hoe to have something left even though the war goes on. I hope they will go on until a permanent peace is conquered, it had better be done in our day than left to our children to settle." (to E.V. Welch, N.Y., May 1861) "I hope that many of those who cannot meet their payments as they become due will be able to do so in full if peace is restored. We have Telegraph news up to the 4th which appears more favourable inasmuch as it shows the north to be very strong to cope against the rebellion." (to Welch, June 1861) "We have just got telegraph that Harpers Ferry has been evacuated." (to Calvert Vaux, 1861) "I beg herewith to enclose you draft on Messrs Jno Munroe & Co of your City for $7000 (three days sight)." The New York banking firm of Messrs. John Munroe & Co. had an office in Paris. (to Welch, March 1862) "I…am glad that the favourable progress of the war is making you more hopeful and in better spirits. The Fort Donelson capture that comes of later date than your letter is another and a greater victory than anything that has preceded it. In fact it is sublime and magnificent and I trust every week now will bring us word of new victories if things go on as they hve began in Kentucky you may yet have a fair trade ." (to Welch, 1862) "I believe Mr. [Calvert] Vaux to be thoroughly honest and honourable still I cant help but think he has been careless in keeping them to dates. Mr. Vaux terms are as follows - 2 1/2 pr ct for plans, elevations & specifications, 1 pr ct for details to larger scale…"

The second letter-book, is 175 separate pages, 8.5 " x 11" and contains copies of business (Henderson Smythe & Co.), personal, and family letters written from Paris between October 18, 1860 and July 25, 1863. Excerpts from the second book: (to Morris Tasker & Co., Philadelphia) "I am commencing to build a dwelling house in the suburbs of New York and have written to my architect Mr. C. Vaux in regard to your furnishing the heating apparatus for warming the same." The company's products included radiators, and cast and wrought iron pipe. (to C. Vaux Esq.) "Have recd drawings of the house and copies of contracts with the mason and carpenter builders." (to Lee, March 30, 1861) "You see the American papers and no doubt know as much as I do in regard to the political State of our Country All is rumour and uncertainty - I wish I had not contracted for the building of our dwelling house for unless things very much change a residence in America is not very desireable." The Civil War began 13 days later. (to Hutchinson, May 1861) "You of course get the news of the intense excitement in all the northern States in regard to the War they are inaugurating to put down rebellion - Persons who came over by the last Steamer say the excitement and Patriotism of the people can hardly be described. The Americans here are also very much excited." (to Hutchinson, 1861) "The papers of Goodyear and a/cs. will go by next Steamer if possible. I have not yet been able to find the letter or agreement by Goodyear where he agreed to pay to us one half of the Tariffs he would secure on Shoes made in Europe." Charles Goodyear had died in 1860. (to May, December 12, 1861) "Slidel & Mason should be given up setting aside the rights of the case they do not think they are worth fighting for. The country will have enough to do to effectually conquer the rebellion without countering against the immense power of Great Britain." On November 8, 1861, a Union frigate stopped the neutral British steamer "Trent" and seized Confederate commissioners John Slidell and James M. Mason who were on their way to England and France to seek support for the Confederacy. Many in Britain called for war. (to C. Vaux) "It will be necessary to have the doors leading from main hall into the 4 principle rooms made and put up as the main stairs balusters." (to Dr. Ludlow, January 24, 1862) "When I recd your letter all was very darek & gloomy in regard to our political troubles, and threatened with war with England & perhaps France to follow." (to Wellman, July 21, 1863) "We are all more or less excited at the welcome news of the fall of Vicksburg and also for the handsome repulse and victory given the rebel army under Lee and of course we are now looking anxiously for the next Telegraph for further results…If the government will follow up this success with new levies of troops and redoubled energy a permanent peace would soon be conquered." (to U.S. Consul Franklin Torry, Carrara, Italy, 1863) "As I have concluded to take the Summer and Winter as originally ordered…I may not get into my house before spring - what kind of pedestals should I have for these statues?...I regret to hear that the artist has been so unfortunate with the Diana statue."

Excerpts from the second book: (to Morris Tasker & Co., Philadelphia) "I am commencing to build a dwelling house in the suburbs of New York and have written to my architect Mr. C. Vaux in regard to your furnishing the heating apparatus for warming the same." The company's products included radiators, and cast and wrought iron pipe. (to C. Vaux Esq.) "Have recd drawings of the house and copies of contracts with the mason and carpenter builders." (to Lee, March 30, 1861) "You see the American papers and no doubt know as much as I do in regard to the political State of our Country All is rumour and uncertainty - I wish I had not contracted for the building of our dwelling house for unless things very much change a residence in America is not very desireable." The Civil War began 13 days later. (to Hutchinson, May 1861) "You of course get the news of the intense excitement in all the northern States in regard to the War they are inaugurating to put down rebellion - Persons who came over by the last Steamer say the excitement and Patriotism of the people can hardly be described. The Americans here are also very much excited." (to Hutchinson, 1861) "The papers of Goodyear and a/cs. will go by next Steamer if possible. I have not yet been able to find the letter or agreement by Goodyear where he agreed to pay to us one half of the Tariffs he would secure on Shoes made in Europe." Charles Goodyear had died in 1860. (to May, December 12, 1861) "Slidel & Mason should be given up setting aside the rights of the case they do not think they are worth fighting for. The country will have enough to do to effectually conquer the rebellion without countering against the immense power of Great Britain." On November 8, 1861, a Union frigate stopped the neutral British steamer "Trent" and seized Confederate commissioners John Slidell and James M. Mason who were on their way to England and France to seek support for the Confederacy. Many in Britain called for war. (to C. Vaux) "It will be necessary to have the doors leading from main hall into the 4 principle rooms made and put up as the main stairs balusters." (to Dr. Ludlow, January 24, 1862) "When I recd your letter all was very darek & gloomy in regard to our political troubles, and threatened with war with England & perhaps France to follow." (to Wellman, July 21, 1863) "We are all more or less excited at the welcome news of the fall of Vicksburg and also for the handsome repulse and victory given the rebel army under Lee and of course we are now looking anxiously for the next Telegraph for further results…If the government will follow up this success with new levies of troops and redoubled energy a permanent peace would soon be conquered." (to U.S. Consul Franklin Torry, Carrara, Italy, 1863) "As I have concluded to take the Summer and Winter as originally ordered…I may not get into my house before spring - what kind of pedestals should I have for these statues?...I regret to hear that the artist has been so unfortunate with the Diana statue."

         Krystallographisch.Optische Untersuchungen. Eine von der Kaiserl. Akademie der Wissenschaften am 30. Mai 1857 gekrönte Preisschrift.

      Wien, Hölzel, 1858 - 2 Bll., VIII, 236 S. mit zahlr. Textabb. ERrste Ausgabe, selten. - ÖBL II, 46 f. NDB VI, 735. - Wilhelm Joseph Grailich (1829 - 1859) erlebte noch 1859 seine Wahl als Mitglied der Wiener Akademie der Wissenschaften, nicht mehr aber seine Bestätigung. – 1855 erhielt Grailich für die von der Akademie gestellte Aufgabe `Über die krystallographische und optische Untersuchung von in chemischen Laboratorien erzeugten Krystallen` (1856) den Preis. 1856 übersetzte er W. H. Millers Lehrbuch `A Treatise on Crystallography` (London 1839) unter dem Titel `Lehrbuch der Kristallographie`. Die Beziehung zwischen chemischen und physikalischen Eigenschaften der Kristalle und deren Strukturaufbau im Sinne einer Molekulartheorie erkennend, versah Grailich die Übersetzung mit eigenen Zusätzen und schrieb vor allem einen umfangreichen Abschnitt über die Kristallphysik, der, über eine Zusammenstellung des damals Bekannten hinausgehend, den ersten Versuch darstellt, gesetzmäßige Zusammenhänge zwischen geometrischen und physikalischen Eigenschaften der kristallisierten Körper aufzuzeigen. Den Fluoreszenzerscheinungen an Kristallen gab er die erste wissenschaftliche Begründung. Grailich war nicht nur ein bedeutender Forscher, sondern auch ein vortrefflicher Lehrer. Er ist zudem als geistiger Gründer des Vereins zur Verbreitung naturwissenschaftlicher Kenntnisse in Wien zu bezeichnen" (NDB). - Titel mehrfach unschön gestempelt.

         SPEECH OF HON. ABRAHAM LINCOLN, DELIVERED IN SPRINGFIELD, SATURDAY EVENING, JULY 17, 1858. [caption title].

      [Springfield, Il. 1858]. - 8pp. printed in double columns. Single folded sheet, dbd. Minor foxing, small chip to bottom edge throughout, costing just a few words each page. Good. The only separate printing of this address given by Lincoln at Springfield, Illinois. Lincoln's speech, which preceded his debates with Douglas, puts forth the great themes that marked his political philosophy during the last ten years of his life. Urging that slavery be placed on course for "ultimate extinction," he repeats his "House Divided" warning, first given at the State Republican Convention a month earlier. He insists that the Kansas-Nebraska bill was "the beginning of a conspiracy" to nationalize slavery. Attacking Douglas, and defending himself against the charge that he would "invite a war of sections," he stands on "the principles of our Declaration of Independence." Though blacks are not the equal of whites "in all respects," the Declaration "does mean to declare that all men are equal in some respects; they are equal in the right to 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.'" Most significantly, "In the right to put into his mouth the bread that his own hands have earned, he is the equal of every other man, white or black." A rare printing of Lincoln's monumental July 1858 Springfield speech. MONAGHAN 12. BYRD 2960.

         Collection of Letters from Ernest Bideaux, French Naval Officer, to his mother, while serving as Enseigne aboard the French Gunboat, La Mitraille, in China during the Second Opium War, 1857-1858, Bideaux was Killed in Action During the Attack on the Pei-Ho Forts, in May 1858

      - 14 letters, 64 pages, by Ernest Bideaux to his mother and family, plus ¿ several additional letters and manuscripts pertaining to Ernest Bideaux including: letters written by his commanding officers after Bideaux¿s death, and letters by his mother and siblings, 5 letters, 13 pages, plus 8 related manuscripts, totaling 11 pages, in very good, clean and legible condition. Ernest Bideaux was born in Vannes, Brittany, France, May 6th, 1835. He joined the French Navy in 1851. Between 1854 and 1856 he served in various campaigns against Russia in the Crimean War, Bomarsund, Sebastopol, Kinburn. Promoted Apsirant 1ère classe (Midshipman 1st Class) 1855. On January 19th 1857 he was assigned to the ship la Durance, bound for China. Promoted Enseigne de Vaisseau (Sublieutenant) March 1857. On July 15, 1857, he was assigned to the gunboat, la Mitraille, and sailed for Canton. He took part in the siege of Canton and its subsequent occupation. Bideaux was killed in action May 20, 1858, during the attack on the Pei-Ho Forts. Bideaux was a very capable, well liked young officer. His commanding officers recognized his capacity and he was often singled out for special services or other opportunities. Early in the correspondence, Bideaux writes his mother describing a dinner in Macao he was invited to attend where the guests included Admiral Charles Rigault de Genouilly, James Bruce, Earl of Elgin, and others, these were the principal Allied figures in the Opium War. His letters describe the events and actions in which he took part. Bideaux¿s letters are not limited to descriptions of shipboard activities Bideaux was selected to lead a platoon of French Marines ashore in the Anglo ¿ French assault of Canton. He remained ashore after the capture of the city, leading patrols and guarding the French portion of the city. He was appointed a commissioner of police in the French controlled areas. Bideaux lived in Canton while ashore among the Chinese, with Chinese servants and his letters provide descriptions of China and his impressions of the country and its people. The Second Opium War was a conflict which pitted the British Empire and the Second French Empire against the Qing Dynasty of China and which lasted from 1856-1860. The conflict grew out of unresolved and continuing trade differences between China and Britain, France and the United States arising from the First Opium War, 1839-1842. British antagonism of Chinese officials within treaty ports continued to escalate in the years following the end of the First Opium War throughout the late 1840s. During the height of the Taiping Rebellion (1850-1864) the British chose to make the legalistic decision to incorporate the most favored nation clause within the American Treaty of Whangia, 1844, the clause demanded that the treaty be negotiated after 12 years of implementation. The main British strategic objectives were the legalization of the opium trade, expanding coolie trade, opening of all of China to British merchants, and the exemption of foreign imports from internal transit duties. A series of trade disputes and the attempted poisoning of the British Superintendent of Trade, Sir John Bowring, in Hong Kong, in 1856 precipitated British actions against China. Although the British forces were delayed by the Indian Mutiny of 1857 a combined Anglo-French force attacked and occupied Canton and Guangzhou province in late 1857. The British Naval force was commanded by Admiral Sir Michael Seymour, the British army led by Lord Elgin and the French army by Baron Gros. Yeh Mingchen the governor of Guangdong and Guangxi provinces was captured, and Bo-gui, the governor of Guangdong surrendered. A joint committee of the Alliance was formed, the British-French Alliance maintained control of Guangzhou for nearly four years. Yeh Mingchen was exiled to Calcutta, India, where he starved himself to death. The coalition then cruised north to capture th
