Wear and fraying to some corners, scuffing to covers and spines (most minimal but some have bigger scuffs). So overall the books are attractive but not sharp. All of the bindings are very tight and pages are very clean. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         By Sou' West Spit

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1884. Colour-printed lithograph, removed from mount, very fine condition. Frederic Cozzens was one of America's greatest marine artists. Like nearly every other great marine artist, he was thoroughly acquainted with every aspect of ship construction and the art of sailing. He is best known for his paintings of great American yachts of the latter half of the 19th century, which were commissioned by many of New York's leading yachtsmen. In 1884, he expanded his audience by making a series of lithographs of his paintings. The first and most brilliant series was American Yachts, Their Clubs and Races from which this print comes. By Sou' West Spit depicts "an excursion of the fleet on Decoration Day showing Class D and Class E sloops and schooners. These include Roamer, Crocodile, Clytie, Grayling and Fanita . One of the most popular races for cabin yachts began at an imaginary line between club steamer and Fort Wadsworth, went to Buoy Number Ten on the South West Spit, thence and around Buoy Number Eight and a Half thence to and around Sandy Hook lightship and returned over the same course. It was a thirty-seven mile run of good, inside yachting work." (Jacobsen , page 79) Jacobsen, Frederic Cozzens. Marine Painter , New York: 1982.

         Mr. Winnecke's Explorations During 1883

      C.E. Bristow, Government Printer, August, Adelaide 1884 - Foolscap folio, 16 pp., large folding map measuring 1240 x 825 mm. (closed tear now expertly repaired), a fine copy in polished half calf by Sangorski with crimson morocco label and gilt lettering. Scarce report commissioned by the South Australian parliament, here accompanied with the large desirable map of the arid interior at the juncture of the Queensland, South Australia and the Northern Territory.The map is captioned "Plan Shewing Explorations made by Mr. Winnecke". At well over a square metre in size, its scale and detail is an impressive testament to the skill of the lithographic printers employed by the Surveyor General's Office in Adelaide. Details of geographical features, routes, water sources and the like are printed in black, while the vast parallel dune system running southwards from the Northern Territory is lithographed in sepia, so capturing the enormity of this landscape. As is often the case with parliamentary publications of this nature, the cost of printing is provided below the drop title and shows that production of this map exceeded £37, a considerable sum at the time.Charles Winnecke (1856-1902) entered the South Australian survey department in 1873, and is best remembered as leader of the Horn scientific expedition of 1894. This report publishes his journey commencing in late July 1883, a privately funded expedition equipped with camels seeking viable pasture around the Queensland border. 'The expedition, which started at the Sandringham homestead and finished at Palparara, crossed vast waterless tracts of the eastern and northeastern Simpson Desert, at one time travelling more than 440 kilometres over high sandhills without finding water. The expedition achieved little, save only to confirm that no viable pastoral land existed in the region.'Winnecke collected plants of interest during his journey and the final two pages of this report comprise a list prepared by Baron von Mueller. As a result of this expedition and similar forays in following years, Winnecke was awarded membership of the Royal Geographical Society. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Ramona

      1884 - JACKSON, Helen H[unt]. Ramona. A Story. Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1884. Octavo, original gilt-stamped green cloth, floral-patterned endpapers. $1600.First edition of Jackson’s most popular novel, a landmark work set in Southern California that is the “first novel about the the region ever published,” in original gilt-stamped cloth.Helen Hunt Jackson’s “dedication to the cause of justice for Indian tribes resulted in a well-researched exposé of Indian mistreatment published in 1881 as A Century of Dishonor.” When this and other of “her nonfiction writings did not initiate the reforms that Jackson sought, she said of Ramona, ‘I am going to write a novel, in which will be set forth some Indian experiences in a way to move people’s hearts” (ANB). To writer Michael Dorris, Jackson “incorporated in her own work not only the Southern California locales of her recent experience, but many of the names, events, and specific occurrences she had witnessed and heard about… much of the crucial action in Ramona was taken whole from real life” (Introduction, Ramona). “The novel’s literary presence can still be felt…. Ramona has also taken an important place in the literary history of Southern California [as] the first novel about the region ever published… Jackson created the first figures in a long line of… heroes who populate the later Southern California fiction of writers as diverse as Nathanael West, Evelyn Waugh, Thomas Pynchon and Joan Didion” (Phillips, Helen Hunt Jackson, 3). Less than a year after Ramona’s publication, Jackson died in San Francisco. With four pages of rear advertisements. Without original dust jacket, rarely found. BAL 10456. Text generally fine with only tiny bit of margin loss to one leaf (27) not affecting text, cloth-gilt lovely. A highly desirable near-fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Plantae Davidianae ex sinarum imperio

      1884 - 2 volumes grand in-4, 390 + Paris, G. Masson, 1884-1888, , 2 volumes grand in-4, 390 + 334 pages, 44 planches en lithographie, dont une double en couleurs, demi-basane vert bouteille à coins, dos à faux nerfs et fleuronné, Bel ouvrage, d'une grande rareté, en deux tomes : le premier sur les plantes de Mongolie, du nord et du centre de la Chine, avec 27 planches ; le second sur les plantes du Tibet oriental, province de Moupine (Muping), avec 17 planches. C'est la première édition en librairie, après la parution dans les Nouvelles archives du Muséum d'histoire naturelle entre 1883 et 1887-1888 (2e série, tome V à X) et le second tirage des planches, dont une belle planche double en couleurs figurant la fleur du davidia involucrata, autrement connu sous le nom d' "arbre aux mouchoirs". En 1880, Adrien Franchet (1834-1900) se voit confier la collation et l'étude de l'importante collection botanique du missionnaire lazariste l'abbé Armand David (1826-1900), éminent botaniste et zoologiste, conservée dans l'Herbier du Muséum. L'abbé David poussa, plus qu'aucun homme avant lui, ses investigations dans les provinces reculées de l'empire chinois ; c'est à lui que l'Occident doit sa connaissance du panda géant. Il collecta également, pour le compte du Muséum, plus de 1500 espèces et il écrivit trois relations de voyage comportant d'intéressantes observations botaniques. De nombreuses plantes qu'il découvrit, à l'instar de celles du genre davidia auquel appartient l'arbre aux mouchoirs, ont été nommées en son hommage. Nissen (BBI) n° 646.

         ARCHIBALD MALMAISON .

      New York: Funk & Wagnalls, Publishers, 1884 - Octavo, pp. [1-5] 6-126 [127-144: publisher ads], fly leaves at front and rear, original decorated bevel-edged orange cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black and gold, yellow endpapers. First U.S. edition. The first printing with ad on page 144 headed "The Standard Library, 1884." Issued as part of Funk & Wagnalls' "Standard Library Series" in paper at 15¢ and in cloth (as here) at 75¢. This edition contains the same five-page "Introductory" section found in the Bentley first edition (and omitted from the later 1899 Funk & Wagnalls edition). Hawthorne's neo- Gothic horror novel ARCHIBALD MALMAISON, first published in 1879 in London by Richard Bentley and Son, is his most melodramatically effective work of fiction. "Hawthorne's most powerful horror story ." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 196. "Crowded with many Gothic manifestations, it arouses still the horror intended . The story proved to be one of Hawthorne's most popular, both in England and America ." - Bassan, Hawthorne's Son: The Life and Literary Career of Julian Hawthorne (1970), pp. 126-27. The author is at his most assured in this book, in perfect control of his material, and a pleasure to observe. A contemporary review in The London Times was typical of its reception abroad: "After perusal of this weird, fantastic tale, it must be admitted that upon the shoulders of Julian Hawthorne has descended in no small degree the mantle of his more illustrious father. The climax is so terrible, and so dramatic in its intensity, that it is impossible to class it with any situation of modern fiction. There is much psychological ingenuity shown in some of the more subtle touches that lend an air of reality to this wild romance." Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2-77. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 107. Bleiler (1978), p. 96. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992). Other than a few insect tracks to rear panel and hint of fading to spine, a bright, fine copy.

This work contains illustrations of Idaho Territory's prominent citizens and their homes, including many specific ranches and farms; many of the buildings in Boise as well as street-scenes and views of other towns; mines, mills, and other industries of the territory; and a map of the territory with an inset of Old Faithful Geyser. The frontispiece is a view of Shoshone Falls on the Snake River. The introductory remarks indicate that the text has been divided into twenty-six sections for easy reference, including a history of the Northwest Territory; missionaries and immigration; a description of Idaho Territory's physical features, climate, soils, and natural resources; the "state of society in the Territory," biographical sketches of prominent citizens, and public schools; the native peoples and animals; and "miscellaneous historical matters." In the section entitled "Primitive Inhabitants," the native tribes of the area are listed, with a brief description of each: "The Pend d'Oreilles are peaceable, industrious, and, in the main, self-supporting. Many of them have adopted the dress, and, in a measure, the customs and habits of civilized people....The Kootenay's are an indolent, thriftless people, too cowardly to fight, too indolent to work, and many of them too lazy to hunt....The Shoshones are well supplied with good horses, and warmly and decently clad, with the single exception, dirt." And so forth. There is an extensive section on the Nez Perce, encompassing the Nez Perce War and efforts to relocate the tribe to a reservation. This work contains a remarkable group of lithographs illustrating ranches, houses, and properties in the Territory, making it a tremendous visual resource for the American West.

         RECOLLECTIONS OF CALIFORNIA MINING LIFE PRIMITIVE PLACERS AND THE FIRST IMPORTANT DISCOVERY OF GOLD THE PIONEERS OF THE PIONEERS - THEIR FORTUNE AND THEIR FATE WRITTEN FOR THE MINING AND SCIENTIFIC PRESS

      San Francisco, 1884. Original pictorial wrappers. Wrappers lightly worn and lightly soiled. Two brief notes on verso of front wrapper (one in pencil, one in ink). Very clean internally. About very good overall. Henry DeGroot was a journalist with the NEW YORK TRIBUNE when he was sent to report on the gold discoveries in 1848. Rather than giving a personal account of his own experiences, however, DeGroot presents a very useful history of gold discoveries in California in 1848 and 1849. Other sections consider why John Fremont failed to discover gold earlier in the 1840s, and why many of the early pioneers failed to attain wealth. The illustrations are by the great Gold Rush artist, Charles Nahl. The front wrapper shows a miner panning for gold, and the rear wrapper illustrates a quartz mill. Other illustrations show Sutter's Mill and other mining camps, as well as various mining methods.

         The Historical and the Posthumous Memoirs of Sir Nathaniel William Wraxall 1772-1784

      London: Bickers and Son 1884 - Bickers & Son, London, 1884. 229 x 149 mm (9 x 5 7/8"). Five volumes. Edited by Henry B. Wheatley. Pleasing contemporary dark plum half morocco over marbled boards by Riviere and Son (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), raised bands, spines gilt in compartments with delicate fleuron centrepiece, gilt titles, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. With 14 engraved portraits. Front pastedown with bookplate of Sir Tresham Lever Bt. Front top joint of volume 1 is cracking but holding very well, the corners are bumped otherwise quite an excellent set, the text fresh and clean, with few signs of use, a little foxing and the attractive bindings with no significant wear. This is a well-bound set of the scandalous memoirs of Sir Nathaniel Wraxall (1751-1831), a traveller, diplomat, Member of Parliament, and inveterate gossip. His "Historical Memoirs of my Own Time, from 1772 to 1784" was first published in 1815, but quickly had to be revised and reissued due to tiresome lawsuits for libel. Critics were unanimous in their disapproval, calling the work "pompous gossip and inflated trash" (Quarterly Review), a "union of nastiness and obscenity" (Edinburgh Review), and "outrageous and unnecessary indecency." (British Critic). Needless to say, the public loved it. Although he seemed to enjoy the furore he created, and bragged that "never, I believe, did any literary work procure for its author a more numerous list of powerful and inveterate enemies," Wraxall decided to publish the remaining part of his memoirs posthumously, when he would be beyond the reach of nasty litigation. The posthumous memoirs appeared in 1836, this time to critical acclaim, with the "Gentleman's Magazine" declaring that the work "will not be considered as one of the ephemeral productions of the day, but . . . Will be consulted by those who wish to obtain information relative to one of the most eventful and interesting periods of English history." The contributions to the world of letters by the bibliographer, editor, and antiquarian Henry Wheatley, (1838-1917) were substantial. Besides being a prolific literary editor, Wheatley published works on topography, library management, bibliographies, bookbinding, and the English dictionary, among other topics. The attractive binding is by Riviere, considered one of the foremost names in English binding partly because the firm did consistently fine work and partly because it was so long in business. Robert Riviere began as a bookseller and binder in Bath in 1829, then set up shop as a binder in London in 1840; in 1881, he took his grandson Percival Calkin into partnership, at which time the firm became known (as here) as Riviere & Son, and the bindery continued to do business until 1939. In the early part of the 20th century, an intense rivalry between Riviere and Sangorski & Sutcliffe developed, and collectors have reaped immense dividends ever since in the form of more and more elaborate work that was not infrequently of breathtaking beauty. Condition Report Externally Spine – Good condition Joints – Good condition – top joint of first volume is cracking but holding well Corners – Good condition slightly bumped Boards – Good condition Page edges – Good condition, top edge gilt.

The first section of the book collects Indian affrays as recounted to Sowell by various pioneers. The second section relates the adventures of the author's family in Texas during the 1830s and '40s, with much interesting material concerning the Texas Revolution and the republic period.

         DAVID (Armand)] FRANCHET (Adrien)

      1884 1184 - Paris, G. Masson, 1884-1888, , 2 volumes grand in-4, 390 + 334 pages, 44 planches en lithographie, dont une double en couleurs, demi-basane vert bouteille à coins, dos à faux nerfs et fleuronné, Bel ouvrage, d'une grande rareté, en deux tomes : le premier sur les plantes de Mongolie, du nord et du centre de la Chine, avec 27 planches ; le second sur les plantes du Tibet oriental, province de Moupine (Muping), avec 17 planches. C'est la première édition en librairie, après la parution dans les Nouvelles archives du Muséum d'histoire naturelle entre 1883 et 1887-1888 (2e série, tome V à X) et le second tirage des planches, dont une belle planche double en couleurs figurant la fleur du davidia involucrata, autrement connu sous le nom d' "arbre aux mouchoirs". En 1880, Adrien Franchet (1834-1900) se voit confier la collation et l'étude de l'importante collection botanique du missionnaire lazariste l'abbé Armand David (1826-1900), éminent botaniste et zoologiste, conservée dans l'Herbier du Muséum. L'abbé David poussa, plus qu'aucun homme avant lui, ses investigations dans les provinces reculées de l'empire chinois ; c'est à lui que l'Occident doit sa connaissance du panda géant. Il collecta également, pour le compte du Muséum, plus de 1500 espèces et il écrivit trois relations de voyage comportant d'intéressantes observations botaniques. De nombreuses plantes qu'il découvrit, à l'instar de celles du genre davidia auquel appartient l'arbre aux mouchoirs, ont été nommées en son hommage. Nissen (BBI) n° 646. Le texte et les planches sont d'une belle fraîcheur. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Mary Anderson. The Story of Her Life

      1884 - (ANDERSON, Mary) FARRAR, J.M. Mary Anderson. The Story of Her Life and Professional Career. London: David Bogue, 1884. Large quarto, mid-20th century three-quarter crushed brown morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers, top edge gilt. $700.First edition of this biography of “our Mary,” extra-illustrated with 27 engraved plates, 23 mounted albumen photographs, 17 playbills (one printed on silk) and an autograph note signed by Anderson, handsomely bound.A native Californian, Mary Anderson enjoyed a successful stage career on both sides of the Atlantic. In New Orleans, “she gave such a triumphant performance… that an enthusiastic crowd of thousands escorted her to the railroad station.” She achieved great stature as a performer of Shakespeare in England, and Sir William Gilbert even wrote a play expressly for her. “Her portrayal of both the noble, womanly, tragic Hermione and the winsome, bright, youthful Perdita” in the The Winter’s Tale “was a tour de force that impressed both fans and critics” in London and New York.“Anderson’s classic beauty, great charm, superb acting ability and rich contralto voice inspired such affection in her American fans that she was always referred to as ‘Our Mary’ despite her long years abroad. Conservative in her choice of vehicles, she lent vivacity to the old-fashioned plays that consistently captivated her audiences” (ANB). This biography of the acclaimed actress was issued with one steel-engraved portrait; this copy has been generously extra-illustrated with 27 engraved plates, 23 mounted albumen photographs, 17 playbills (one printed on silk) and a two-page autograph note signed by Anderson tipped to the leaf preceding the half title. In the note, Anderson requests a visit from the recipient. Scattered light foxing and offsetting. An about-fine, amply extra-illustrated copy, handsomely bound.
