Burton Richard F
Longman, Green, Longman and Roberts, 1860. 2 volumes. First edition. With 12 chromo-xylographic tinted plates, 22 woodcuts and one folding map. Large 8vo, very handsomely bound in fine period style three-quarter tan calf over marbled boards, the spines beautifully gilt tooled with panel designs, gilt ruled and stippled compartments between gilt ruled raised bands, two compartments with contrasting labels of red and green morocco lettered and ruled in gilt, end-leaves marbled, t.e.g. xvii, 412; vii, 468. A handsome set, internally clean and fresh, all quite solid, the period style bindings are very fine. SCARCE FIRST EDITION of a book which to this day is considered one of Burton's very best. Burton returned to Africa, after his expedition to Harrar, to undertake an exploration of the "then utterly unknown Lake regions of Central Africa." His stated intention was to correct certain geographical errors (of which there were many at that time) concerning Africa and to survey as fully as possible the resources of Central and intertropical Africa. But the real reason he wanted to venture into that unknown wilderness was to find the Jebel Kumri, the fabled "Mountains of the Moon," and to find the source of the Nile river. Burton and Speke first stopped at Zanzibar, then explored the coastal regions around Mombassa, and returned to Zanzibar, from whence they set out for Ujiji--about a thousand miles inland, on the shore of the relatively unknown Lake Tanganyika. It took seven and a half months to arrive, and when there they explored the lake ineffectually due to their wretched phys … [Click Below for Full Description]

PITSCHNER, Wilhelm.
Berlin, In Commission bei bei August Hirschwald, 1860. 8vo. Original cloth-backed boards, upper cover lettered in gilt; pp. [xxii], 154, [2], three lithographic plates (2 in colour); wear to extremities, a little spotted internally. Very rare first edition. In 1864, together with the second edition (privately published) of this title appeared an even rarer atlas volume with six plates. After John Tyndall's exploration and ascents of Mont Blanc from 1857 to 1859 'another remarkable scientific ascent was in 1859 by Wilhelm Pitschner, a Professor at Berlin, who had reached the summit with four guides and 26 porters, who carried physical instruments, photographic equipment, a dog, a cat and three pigeons. A series of measurements were made on physics, astronomy and glaciology' (West, High Life. A History of High-Altitude Physiology and Medicine, p. 76). Dôme and Aiguille Pitschner have been named after the pioneering scientific mountaineer.

A VERY STUNNING PIECE! A rare beautiful original Louis Wain drawing in pen and ink, of a cat with a lovely look of surprise on his face. Signed to the front, lower left by Louis Wain. The page is toned with light creasing and a few tiny stain dots. The art was custom double matted, framed and glazed and is presented in a natural light maple wood frame, with a deeply beveled mat, framed using all archival materials and UV glass. The art is signed in full signature by Louis Wain as ¿Louis Wain¿ lower left. Wain has a very distinctive artistic style capturing incredible emotions in his highly detailed cat drawing. Provenance: The sketch was acquired by a premier London auction house who vetted the art. A copy of the lot description showing both the purchase, along with the art description will accompany the framed piece as provenance. Louis Wain original artwork is exceedingly scarce. A very stunning piece and showcases very well. Perfect for the Louis Wain and cat art collector. Louis Wain was one of the most popular commercial illustrators in the history of England. Born in 1860, his anthropomorphic portrayals of cats captured the imagination of the Edwardian era and his work helped to elevate the profile and popularity of our feline friends to unprecedented heights.

MISSION APOSTOLIQUE DU POLE ARCTIQUE
(Rome?, vers 1860), in-4 de ix pp. et 2 ff.n.ch., br. sous couv. blanche muette. Édition originale. Curieuse plaquette en latin offerte au pape Pie IX par les 6 missionnaires de la Mission catholique du Pôle arctique. L'idée de cette mission avait germé le jour même de la proclamation du dogme de l'Immaculée Conception, le 8 décembre 1854. Une exploration préliminaire ayant eu lieu, une nouvelle Préfecture apostolique fut créée en 1855, embrassant l'Islande, les îles Féroé, la Laponie, le Groenland et l'Amérique polaire, afin d'évangéliser les Esquimaux des régions arctiques nouvellement découvertes. Placée à la jonction de l'Ancien et du nouveau Monde, cette mission arctique était censée dominer le protestantisme au nord et faire face au schisme russe à l'est. C'est justement de Russie qu'était originaire l'abbé Etienne Djunkovsky (1821-1870), Petersbourgeois orthodoxe converti au catholicisme, qui fut nommé préfet apostolique des Missions du Pôle arctique (avant de retourner à l'orthodoxie à la fin de sa vie). Il lui fut adjoint par la suite 5 missionnaires venus de Belgique, de France et d'Allemagne: Bernard Bernard, Johann Georg Bauer, Jean-Baptiste Baudouin, Théophile Verstraeten et Elias Maesfrancx. Comme témoignage symbolique des catholiques accrochés fermement à la pierre de l'Eglise en milieu hostile, les 6 prêtres offrent au Pape cette plaquette recensant les diverses espèces d'algues du littoral des Iles Féroé. Singulière impression en gros caractères gras à l'intérieur d'encadrements typographiques. Qqs corrections à la main dans le texte. Joint le tirage à part … [Click Below for Full Description]
