Lot 6295

Title: The Voyage of Captain Popanilla
Author: Benjamin Disraeli - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield, KG, PC, FRS, was a British Prime Minister, parliamentarian, Conservative statesman and literary figure. He served in government for three decades, twice as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Although his father had him baptised to Anglicanism at age 12, he was nonetheless Britain's first and thus far only Prime Minister who was born into a Jewish family—originally from Portugal. He played an instrumental role in the creation of the modern Conservative Party after the Corn Laws schism of 1846.

Although he was a major figure in the protectionist wing of the Conservative Party after 1844, Disraeli's relations with the other leading figures in the party, particularly Lord Derby, the overall leader, were often strained. Not until the 1860s would Derby and Disraeli be on easy terms, and the latter's succession of the former assured. From 1852 onwards, Disraeli's career would also be marked by his often intense rivalry with William Ewart Gladstone, who eventually rose to become leader of the Liberal Party. In this feud, Disraeli was aided by his warm friendship with Queen Victoria, who came to detest Gladstone during the latter's first premiership in the 1870s. In 1876 Disraeli was raised to the peerage as the Earl of Beaconsfield, capping nearly four decades in the House of Commons.

Before and during his political career, Disraeli was well known as a literary and social figure, although his novels are not generally regarded as a part of the Victorian literary canon. He mainly wrote romances, of which Sybil and Vivian Grey are perhaps the best-known today. He is exceptional among British Prime Ministers for having gained equal social and political renown. He was twice successful as the Glasgow University Conservative Association's candidate for Rector of the University, holding the post for two full terms between 1871 and 1877.

Title: William H. Seward's Travels around the World
Author: William H. Seward - William Henry Seward was the 12th Governor of New York, United States Senator and the United States Secretary of State under Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson. A determined opponent of the spread of slavery in the years leading up to the American Civil War, he was a dominant figure in the Republican Party in its formative years, and was widely regarded as the leading contender for the party's presidential nomination in 1860 – yet his very outspokenness may have cost him the nomination. Despite his loss, he became a loyal member of Lincoln's wartime cabinet, and played a role in preventing foreign intervention early in the war. On the night of Lincoln's assassination, he survived an attempt on his life in the conspirators' effort to decapitate the Union government. As Johnson's Secretary of State, he engineered the purchase of Alaska from Russia in an act that was ridiculed at the time as "Seward's Folly", but which somehow exemplified his character. His contemporary Carl Schurz described Seward as "one of those spirits who sometimes will go ahead of public opinion instead of tamely following its footprints."

Title: Le vaisseau de 74 canons: traite practique d'art naval
Author: Jean Boudriot
Publisher: Jean Boudriot
City: Paris
Year: 1975, 1977
Binding Style: Hardcover
Number of Volumes: 4 Complete: Yes
Width: 9.75" Height: 12.75"
Book Details: Title appears within the "Collection Archeologie Navale Francaise."

The author, Jean Boudriot, is the world’s leading authority on French warships of the sailing era and this work has been written to the highest standards of historical accuracy and research, benefiting from Boudriot’s remarkable skill as a draughtsman. The author presents a highly detailed examination of the French 74-gun ship of the 18th century, and a large number of differences emerge from its rival and counterpart built in English yards. The 74-gun ship-of-the-line represents the expression of the art of the naval architect and formed the backbone of the fleets in the latter part of the 18th century. Boudriot has based this work on the 74’ of around 1780: the ships that fought in the American War of Independence and later in the French Revolutionary & Napoleonic Wars from 1793 to 1815 - vessels that would have been very familiar to English admirals from Rodney to Nelson. The first volume, Hull Construction, examines the administration of the ports and dockyards, the work of the surveyors, the work of the shipwrights, materials, dockyard installations, hull timbers, fastenings and caulking. It is illustrated with 16 folding plates and 106 drawings, plus tables and a vocabulary of terms used. The second volume, Fitting Out the Hull, covers hull fittings, internal arrangements, ballast and stowage and the warrant-officers’ stores. This volume is illustrated with 26 plates (some folding and some in colour), plus 107 drawings. The third volume, Masts – Sails – Rigging, deals with these three areas and their maintenance. Other features include general concepts, cost of building, a list of ships in the French Navy in 1780, and a vocabulary. The volume is illustrated with 13 plates (some folding, some in colour) and 134 drawings. The final volume, Manning – Shiphandling, describes the officers and crew, their work, life on board, ship-handling, naval evolutions and operations, navigation, and colours and signals. It is illustrated with 17 plates (some folding, some in colour) and 167 drawings. There are also tables, a general vocabulary and a useful bibliography.
Condition / Notes: Set is bound in blue cloth with stamped white lettering to spines and front covers. Tightly-bound volumes show very little external wear. Interiors are clean and fresh. Lavishly illustrated with double-page color plates, in-text drawings, plans and fold-out plates. All volumes are in dust jackets showing mild edgewear and/or tears at edges.
