         VAGABUNDULI LIBELLUS.

      London: Kegan Paul [et al], 1884. - Dark blue cloth, lettered in gilt. Cloth lightly rubbed, with a bit of shelfwear at the spine ends, but a very good, bright copy. First edition, first state of the binding. A good association copy, inscribed by Symonds on the half-title to his friend, Greek scholar Henry Graham Dakyns: "To his friend H. G. Dakyns the Writer Davos Platz Oct 26 1884." Dakyns (1838 - 1911) served as tutor to Tennyson's children following his graduation from Cambridge. From 1881-3, he took a sabbatical from his post as Assistant Master of Classics at Clifton College in order to work on his edition of the works of Xenophon. He was among the circle of Symonds' friends who on occasion received copies of JAS's privately printed works: his copies of A PROBLEM IN GREEK ETHICS and RHAETICA sold at Sotheby's London in 2004, £8,500 and £3,800 respectively. He inscribed another copy of this collection of verse to Eugene Lee Hamilton on the same date (see Colbeck). BABINGTON 38. D'Arch Smith, LOVE IN EARNEST, pp. 251-2. COLBECK II:813.

         The Young Colonists

      George Routledge 1884 - The Young Colonists by G A Henty published by George Routledge in 1884 dated 1885. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good minus. 1st Edition. Newbolt 17.1 who says that 2000 copies were originally produced. No other copy appears to be currently on the market. The book has some external wear/splitting to the top and bottom of spine and some fading/water bleaching (?) to front right hand corner. Internally the book is weak at the front end between endpapers where a proportion of the spine is exposed. Would benefit from some professional restoration perhaps. Original endpapers, all plates present. Having said that it is still a great looking copy with gilt and cloth illustrations extremely bright. All gilt edges. This copy includes a fascinating inscription as follows: 'Ernest Hugo Scales from Sir William McArthur Xmas 1886. The last book he gave me before his death'. Sir William McArthur was the Lord Mayor of London in 1880 and a founder member of the London Chamber of Commerce 1881. See Wikipedia. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Az Ember Származàsa és az Ivari Kiválás. [Translated by:] Török Aurei és Entz Géza. 2 vols.

      Budapest, Kiadja A. K. M., 1884. 8vo. In the publisher's original two embossed full red cloth bindings with gilt lettering to spine. Previous owner's name in contemporary hand written to pasted down front free end papers. Light wear to extremities. An extraordinarily fine and clean copy. LXXI, (1), 542 pp.; VII, 5, 436 pp.. The exceedingly rare first Hungarian translation of Darwin's The Descent of Man. "Compared with the original and with a biography by Margó Tivador" (Freeman). The Hungarian public was introduced to Darwinism early on when Ferenc Jánosi reviewed The Origin of Species in the Budapesti Szemle (Budapest Review) a half year after it first appeared in English. Darwin's principal works were first published in Hungarian translation by the Royal Hungarian Natural Science Society (Királyi Magyar Természettudományi Társulat). The Origin of Species, translated by László Dapsy, was published in 1873; The present work in 1884 and a few years later, in 1897, the latter work was translated anew and published by László Seress. "It is characteristic of the enlightened spirit of the country in this period that Darwin received academic recognition earlier in Hungary than in England. Although Cambridge did not honor Darwin until 1879, he was elected an honorary member of The Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1872, the same year on this occasion the renowned Hungarian zoologist Tivadar Margó visited him at Down.Historical circumstances played a major role in this quick appearance of Darwinism and its popularity in Hungary. The failure of the 1848-49 revolution and war of independence seemingly put an end to progressive political discourse, signaling an ideological crisis among the intelligentsia. In this context, the natural sciences with their 'eternal truths' promised a way out, inasmuch as science's promised objectivity might well serve as a politically neutral expression of progressive values" (Mund, The Reception of Charles Darwin in Nineteenth-Century Hungarian Society)."Darwin wrote, in the preface to the second edition, of 'the fiery ordeal through which this book has passed'. He had avoided the logical outcome of the general theory of evolution, bringing man into the scheme, for twelve years, and in fact it had, by that time, been so much accepted that the clamour of the opposition was not strident. He had also been preceded in 1863 by Huxley's Man's place in nature. The book, in its first edition, contains two parts, the descent of man itself, and selection in relation to sex. The word 'evolution' occurs, for the first time in any of Darwin's works, on page 2 of the first volume of the first edition, that is to say before its appearance in the sixth edition of The origin of speciesin the following year." (Freeman).Freeman no. 1084

         To the Reverend Mr.

      [c.1884], [Leicester, UK?] - Broadsheet [4pp.] Small octavo [20.5 cm] Very good. Forty-one lines over two pages with blanks to be filled in by hand. This short work by Goddard is to introduce to the inhabitants of his native town "the fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which God our Heavenly Father has revealed through his servant Joseph Smith." We believe this work was intended to be personalized to the recipient and have another tract laid in at the center "I respectfully ask of you the following: - That you will prayerfully and carefully peruse the enclosed tract." George Goddard (1815-1899) was an English convert and was the Assistant to the General Superintendent for the Deseret Sunday School Union for twenty-six years and is credited with first printing of the 'Articles of Faith' in card form.

      Unwin Borhters, London 1884 - A Smaller Biblia Pamperum During the year 1877, the Caxton Celebration was held in London, and a most extraordinary collection of early printed Books was exhibited at South Kensington. One of the exhibitions consisted of a volume of impressions and the blocks themselves, the originals of which have been used for the reductions which illustrate this Volume. This very curious series of original blocks were purchased about sixty years since at Nuremberg, by the late Mr. Sams, of Darlington. They cannot be recognized as belonging to any printed book, and the Artist's mark, which appears on the 37th plate, is unknown to any Bibliographer. M. Passavant, a well-known writer of the subject, does not appear to have met with it in his researches. It is therefore probable that the blocks were thrown aside and never used, after the have been engraved, till a lapse of nearly four centuries. They form a kind of "Biblia Pauperum," illustrative of the Life, Miracles, Parables, and Sayings, of our Savior, and occasionally, typical subjects from the Old Testament are introduced. There are altogether seventy-eight subjects represented on the thirty-eight plates. Herbert #2008 Another edition, in a smaller size. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Karl Friedrich Ludwig Goedeke (1814 - 1887) studierte in Göttingen Philologie und Literaturgeschichte und arbeitete als Korrespondent in einer Hannoverschen Buchhandlung. 1873 wurde er zum außerordentlichen Professor für Literaturgeschichte an der Georg-August-Universität Göttingen ernannt. Bevor er sein literarisches Schaffen gänzlich in den Dienst anderer Dichter und die Erforschung und Kollektivierung der Literatur stellte, veröffentlichte Goedeke unter dem Pseudonym Karl Stahl eigene poetische Werke, darunter die Komödie König Kodrus, eine Missgeburt der Zeit (1839) und Novellen (1840) sowie Biographien über Goethe, Schiller und Lessing. Goedeke wurde durch seine literaturhistorischen Arbeiten, vor allem durch seine Sammelbibliografie "Grundrisz zur Geschichte der deutschen Dichtung" berühmt.

         The Raven

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1884. First Edition. Large Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. Dore, Gustave; Vedder, Elihu. Signed by illustrator. First American edition. Lacks scarce slipcase. No jacket as issued. Board edges rubbed with minor loss from spine ends, light quarter-sized spot on front corner, binding slightly loose at point between introduction and poem with one gathering free, but easily restored (please inquire). 1884 Large Hardcover. Elephant folio: 18 1/2 x 14 5/8. Original grey cloth boards with beveled edges, all page edges gilt, black stamped titles. Front board decorated with an image of an angel with gilt-stamped wings. A variant exists which includes purple embellishments, mainly to the angel's face and body - these are not present here. Includes 27 engravings: 26 from illustrations by Gustave Dore, and a title vignette from an illustration by Elihu Vedder. This was Dore's last published work, released the year after his death. It was published simultaneously in the United Kingdom, also in elephant folio format, but with a somewhat less attractive cover. During his career, Dore established himself as among the most skilled artists working in the medium of wood, copper, and steel engravings, and produced illustrated editions of numerous important works of literature, including the Holy Bible, Paradise Lost, The Divine Comedy, Don Quixote, and The Tempest. The original engravings were large format pieces, and thus many publications featuring Dore's works are elephant folios. Many reprints were (and still are) produced, though, often in smaller formats. These are characterized by loss of detail in the illustrations due to resizing of images, and the use of different printing methods. As such, imprints featuring the illustrations in their original incarnation are particularly sought after.

         New York and Brooklyn

      1884 - This map was made by S. Augustus Mitchell for "Mitchell's New General Atlas" published in 1884, by WM. M. Bradley & Co. The well maintained maps in this atlas feature Mitchell's characteristic pastel coloring and abundant geographical features. Details include the names of streets, rail roads, depots, canals, parks, rivers and creeks. City sections are distinguished by color. These 1884 maps offer a fascinating perspective of areas that have since undergone significant growth and change, in addition to their value as great examples of Mitchell's work. This map is framed with an elegant, polished, cherry with decorative black edging. It has a gray fabric outer mat, a beaded fillet, a linear gray inner mat. Any map lover would cherish this beautiful framed map of New York City.

      Wien, Braumüller, 1884.. 8°, Originalbroschur, X, 288 S., 1 Chromolithographie, 64 Holzstichillustrationen im Text und 1 Tafel; unaufgeschnitten. Beiliegend 7 Bl. Kopie mit der Kraepelinschen Rezension. ZILBOORG & HENRY 441, GARRISON/MORTON 4942, KOLLE II, 98ff., NORMAN 1506: "Meynert, Freud's teacher at the University of Vienna, belonged to the German somatist school of psychiatry, which followed Griesinger's dictum that all psychic diseases were brain diseases. Meynert's "Psychiatrie" took the somatic view to it's extreme: all mental ilness ... was caused by the supposed physiological antagonism between the forebrain and brain stem.." Emil Kraepelin kritisiert Meynert in seiner Rezension dieses Werkes (Allgemeine Zeitschrift f. Psychiatrie Bd. 42, 1886) heftig, hält die Untersuchungsmethoden Meynerts (Abfaserung) für wenig vertrauenswürdig und bezeichnet seine Folgerungen als "speculative Anatomie". Erst der zweite Teil mit der klinischen Darstellung könne ein abschliessendes Urteil erlauben, aber diesen Teil hat Kraepelin auch nicht gesehen. Die auf dem Umschlag angekündigte Lieferung einer zweiten Hälfte in gleichem Umfang ist nie erfolgt, wenn auch KREUTER II, 965 diese zweite Hälfte ins Jahr 1885 datiert, und das Buch endet auf S. 288 mitten im Satz. Leider kann der Verlag wegen Verlusten des Archivs nicht mehr klären, wie es zu dieser ungewöhnlichen Publikationsweise kam. - Insgesamt sehr selten und psychiatriehistorisch bedeutend!

        Jane Eyre (Volumes I and II), Haworth Edition - Number 20 of 75 Copies

      Robert J. Lindsay, Philadelphia 1884 - Number 20 of 75 copies printed on Whatman's hand-made paper, with duplicate signed proofs of the Etchings on Japan paper (these 75 were a subset of 500 copies, with the larger group being printed on extra laid paper). Called the Haworth Edition after the residence of Charlotte Bronte. *** This set contains eight etchings, four in each volume, each by a different illustrator, with a duplicate of each etching bound in and individually signed by each illustrator. The illustrators were all very well-known in their day, exhibiting at major events and many were members of well-known artist societies. Interestingly, one of the illustrators was Stephen Parris, the father of Maxfield Parrish. In addition, each chapter in both volumes has a unique Initial Letter designed by John S. Stevenson. *** DESCRIPTION: Full navy blue leather with a gilt ruled border on both the front and rear boards, gilt-ruled compartments on the spine with gilt lettering, gilt inner dentelles, blue decorative endpapers, top edge gilt, fore- and bottom edges uncut, limitation statement on the verso of the half-title page. Each volume contains four illustrations as referred to above, for a total of eight within the set, each etching accompanied by the original proof individually signed by the artist and which is tissue-guarded. Each chapter opens with a unique initial letter in black and white. Volume I opens with a Preface signed by Currer Bell (Charlotte Bronte) and dated December 21st, 1847, as a preface to the Second Edition of Jane Eyre. Volume I contains 383 pages and Volume II has 421 pages. *** CONDITION: Overall the set is in near fine condition, with strong hinges and solid text blocks, free from foxing. The only issues preventing us from grading this set as fine include some minor scuffing to the exterior, a few brown spots to the foredge of Volume II, and a very narrow dampstain to the duplicate title page in Volume I (both volumes contain two title pages in addition to the accompanying original proof). In addition, there are the remains of a vintage sticker, very small (less than one-quarter of an inch) on the front free endpaper of Volume I - all that remains are the numbers "19", the pages themselves in both volumes are entirely free of prior owner markings. *** Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
