        Thebes, its Tombs and their Tenants Ancient and Present

      London: Longman, Green, Longman, and Roberts, , 1862. including a Record of Excavations in the Necropolis. Large octavo. Original purplish pebble-grained, title gilt to spine, panels in blind to the boards, brown surface-paper endpapers. Coloured frontispiece and 7 other tinted or coloured plates, one with gold, numerous illustrations to the text. Irregularly sunned on the boards and spine, front hinge just a little cracked, light browning and some foxing front and back, but overall very good. First edition. Having begun his archaeological researches in his native Scotland, Rhind's health forced him to winter in Egypt 1855-6 and 1856-7. While there he undertook the " important investigations of the tombs at Thebes" (ODNB) which are recorded here. His methodical practice, he was the first archaeologist to record the exact locations of finds and their relationships, has led to him to being referred to as the "bright shining light of archæological method and conscience." (Wilson, Signs and Wonders upon Pharaoh) On his death, at only 30 years old, he left funds for two scholarships at Edinburgh University; endowed an industrial institution for orphan girls in his home town; and to the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland he bequeathed £400 for excavations, his library; and the copyright of this book and some moneys from his estate towards the establishment of a series of lectures, the prestigious Rhind Lectures continue to this day.

Fully complete.. The very scarce first French edition of Darwin's masterpiece, one of the most important books ever printed. The "Origin" started the greatest of all intellectual revolutions in the history of Mankind.There were some difficulties with the first French edition. Mlle Royer, who Darwin described as 'one of the cleverest and oddest women in Europe' and wished 'had known more of natural history', added her own footnotes. He was not really happy until the third translation by Éduard Barbier appeared in 1876. (Freeman). - Freeman No 655 (Freeman does not mention the plate, which is present here)

        THE LORD MAYOR OF LONDON

      1862. or, City Life in the Last Century. In Three Volumes. London: Chapman and Hall, 1862. Original magenta wavy-grain cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition of this novel sited in 1761 London. This is a near-fine copy, in the striking original magenta cloth (spines toned to a honey-brown, as usual for this color), with only the slightest of wear at the foot of the spines; it appears that a bookplate was removed from each front paste-down (in one case damaging the endpaper), and one endpaper is cracked, but one would have a hard time finding a better copy of this Ainsworth title. Sadleir 19; Wolff 58 ("this is the Ainsworth 3-decker that I waited longest for").

      Bruxelles (Brussels): Lacroix, Verboeckoven et Cie. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION of one of the world's most influential novels, very handsomely bound. "Ever since its publication in 1862, Les Miserables has remained one of the most widely read novels in the world... Indeed, its appearance was a unique phenomenon in the history of publishing, by the scope of its success among the elite as well as the people, national as well as international, with general readers as well as critics. In addition, dozens of film version- from France, the United States, Italy, Egypt, India, Japan, and the Soviet Union- have perpetuated the legendary quality of the book... Perhaps more than any other work of literature, Victor Hugo's novel has flourished as part of our international consciousness" (Kathryn M. Grossman, Hugo's Romantic Sublime). Bruxelles (Brussels): Lacroix, Verboeckoven et Cie, 1862. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter polished calf by Ward, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled boards, endpapers, and edges. Ten volumes (complete). Bound without half-titles. A few repairs to joints, a little rubbing to a few boards. Text remarkably clean with extremely wide margins. A beautiful set.

        Poems. With a Memoir [by F.T. Palgrave].

      Cambridge: Macmillan 1862 - FIRST COLLECTED EDITION, pp.xxvii, 259, 16 advertisements, 8vo, original green honeycomb cloth, gilt, minor wear to the extremities, good Inscribed on the brown front free endpaper in the month of publication to ‘The Rev’d R.P. Graves with A J Clough’s kind regards July 1862’.Anne Jemima Clough, the poet’s sister, was the first principal of Newnham College Cambridge and a pioneer of women’s education. Robert Perceval Graves (1810-93), scion of a family that ‘had for several generations contributed with distinction to scholarship and to the learned professions in Ireland’ was at the time curate of Windermere and hence neighbour to Anne Clough; the poet, Arthur Hugh, had died in 1861. Graves wrote a Memoir of Wordsworth and a Life of Sir William Rowan Hamilton, these two enjoying a well-known friendship. Graves was also the grand-uncle of the poet Robert Graves, so the volume radiates considerable poetical associations. (Scott A13; Tinker 646)

        Atlas Ichthyologique des Indes Orientales Néêrlandaises. Publié sous les auspices du Gouvernement Colonial Néêrlandais.

      Amsterdam, F. Muller, 1862-1865. Volumes 1-5 (of 9) volumes. Folio (450 x 295 mm). With 240 plates of which 238 superbly chromo-lithographed. Later half cloth library bindings, the last volume loose in original printed wrappers. There is no title to volume 5 and the text runs from page 1-96 (of 152), the plates 232-240 belong to volume 6, library stamp on titles. A complete copy has 9 vols and 420 plates and was published from 1862 to 1878. A magnificent ichthyological atlas, the most splendid work on fishes of the nineteenth century. It is the only major work on the fishes of the Indo-Pacific ocean. In 1845 Bleeker started his project, however the first printing was realised 18 years later. Due to his death the work remained unfinished. During his life Bleeker sent more than 12.000 fishes from the East Indian Archipelago to Holland. The edition of the present work must have been very small as Bleeker in his biography mentions only 60 subscribers. The plates are splendidly executed after drawings by L. Speigler and chromolithographed by C.W. Mieling and later by Emrik & Binger. According to Junk, Rara p. 140 'les planches chromo-lithographiées sont d'une exécution magnifique et sont en effet les meilleures que la litérature moderne d'Ichthyologie a produit. Bleeker est l'auteur le plus fertile de sa science'. //The volumes are composed as follows: I. Scaroïdes et Labroïdes; II. Siluroïdes, Chacoïdes et Hétérobranchoïdes; III. Cyprins; IV. Murènes, Synbranches, Leptocéphales; V. Baudroies, Ostracions, Gymnodontes, Balistes.//Junk, Rara 140; Nissen ZBI, 409.

      Typography of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, St. Petersburg 1862 - recent ½ calf with marbled boards, spine with 5 compartments of raised bands title in gilt., Text in RussianIn the 11th century the Great Schism took place between Rome and Constantinople, which led to separation of the Church between the Roman Catholic Church, and the Eastern Orthodox Church. There were doctrinal issues like authority of the Pope involved in the split, but these were exacerbated by cultural and linguistic differences between Latins and Greeks.The final breach is often considered to have arisen after the sacking of Constantinople by the Fourth Crusade in 1204. The sacking of the Church of Holy Wisdom and establishment of the Latin Empire in 1204 is viewed with some rancour to the present day.The Russian Orthodox Church also known as the Orthodox Catholic Church of Russia, is that body of Christians who are united under the Patriarch of Moscow, who in turn is in communion with the other patriarchs and primates of the Eastern Orthodox Church., Size : 4to, P. half-title, blank, title, printer?s imprint, (2), i-xxiv, (2), 1-434, (2), 1-6, 1-49, (1) Mild occasional foxing otherwise an excellent copy.

        British Entomology;.

      being illustrations and descriptions of the genera of insects found in Great Britain and Ireland; containing coloured figures from nature of the most rare and beautiful species, and in many instances of the plants upon which they are found. London, Lovell Reeve & Co., 1862. 8 volumes. Royal-8vo (236 x 147mm). With 770 handcoloured engraved (some lithographed) plates and descriptive text. Contemporary half citron morocco, spines in 6 compartments with gilt lines, gilt edges, frontcovers with gilt coat of arms of Sherborne library (Lord Digby). A splendidly bound copy of noble provenance. One of the most beautifully illustrated works on British insects. The first edition was published by the author in parts from 1824-1839 and once described by Cuvier as 'the paragon of perfection'. 'His artistic trademark was the depiction of insects on or by their corresponding foodplant... ' (Salmon p. 138), which render the plates particularly charming. John Curtis was born in Norwich in 1791, son of an engraver, and his mother was described as a 'cultivator of flowers'. At the age of sixteen he went to work for a local solicitor and began to supplement his income by collecting and selling insect specimens to the gentlemen entomologists of the day and learnt the art of scientific illustration. His first published illustrations appeared in Kirby and Spence's bestseller 'Introduction to Entomology' (1815-26). In 1817 he went to London where he met many of the leading natural historians, such as Sir Joseph Banks./"John Curtis is described as the first entomologist to earn a living, albeit a rather poor one, as a scientist. He liked to travel although it proved difficult because of his financial problems but he collected extensively in Britain, Ireland and Europe. In 1825 he travelled to Scotland by steam packet and returned by land, walking most of the way and collecting insects and adding thirty-two new species to the British list - all material for his dream work 'British Entomology'" (Gilbert p. 142).//Provenance: Armorial bookplate of Sherborne Library on verso of frontcover.//Nissen ZBI, 1000; B.M.(N.H.)I, 407.

        Bound Volume of Handbills for Musical Performances at two German theaters: W. Diehm's Forsyth Street Conzert-halle and Steuben Haus in New York City

      Lauter & Becker, [New York] 1862 - Octavo. Quarter calf and marbled papercovered boards. Text in German. Spine perished, both boards detached, modest foxing and small chips and stains, particularly on the last couple of handbills, overall good or better. The volume contains 46 handbills for German musical comedies and light operas, as follows: 40 handbills printed rectos only for Wilhelm Diehm's Forsyth St. Conzert-halle (hand-numbered 2-41; apparently one is lacking) and six handbills printed rectos only for Steuben Haus in the Bowery (hand-numbered 42-47). Each show seems to have run for a week or two, and as they run consecutively, one can be reasonably certain that Steuben Haus suceeded the Forsyth Street Conzert-halle. The proprietor of Forsyth Street is listed as Nathaniel Rosenbaum, but Steuben Haus was founded and run by Sixtus Ludwig Kapff, a Wuerttemberg revolutionist who was forced to flee to the U.S when the 1848 movement was crushed. He served briefly in the Union Army before returning to New York City to found his theater. During the 19th Century, New York had the third largest German population of any city in the world, and musical theatre played an important role in the immigrant population's community, and one imagines even more so during the Civil War. Perhaps because of the language barriers, surprisingly little research has been done on the subject. A nice volume of ephemeral handbills that helps illustrate the vibrancy of the German musical theatre in daily immigrant life. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
