         Les rêves et les moyens de les diriger. Observations pratiques.

      - Paris, Amyot, 1867. In-8, demi-veau bleu nuit de l’époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné d'un fer spécial répété entre-nerfs, couverture illustrée conservée, (4), 496 p., frontispice chromo-lithographié, exemplaire non rogné. Édition originale, rare, de cet ouvrage devenu célèbre. Composé par le sinologue et précurseur de l’onirologie moderne Léon d’Hervey de Saint-Denys (1822-1892), il renferme le fruit de ses propres observations au long de 1946 nuits, relevées dès l’adolescence et consignées dans son journal. Esprit curieux, créatif et pragmatique, il livre la synthèse de ses découvertes sur l’état de rêve, sur le sommeil et sur les états intermédiaires. Il propose également des techniques pour contrôler les rêves, des recherches historiques et une analyse des principaux ouvrages sur le sujet. L’ouvrage se termine par un chapitre intitulé: "Un rêve après avoir pris du hatchich (sic)". Ce livre, qui est devenu un classique du genre, a toujours été rare. Freud (in ‘L’interprétation des rêves’) écrit qu'il avait tenté de s’en procurer un exemplaire sans jamais y parvenir. Il n'échappa pas, non plus, à Bergson ou encore à André Breton qui, en 1932, commença son ouvrage 'Les Vases communicants' par un hommage à Hervey de Saint Denys intronisé "surréaliste dans le rêve dirigé". L’édition est illustrée d’un beau frontispice lithographié en couleurs dont l'explication se trouve aux pages 381, 421 et 422. Il représente, dans sa moitié supérieure, l’auteur dînant chez des hôtes, alors qu’entre, dans la pièce, le peintre M. D accompagné de l’un de ses modèles, entièrement nu. Le reste de la planche est occupé par six vignettes d'illusions visuelles désignées comme "hallucinations hypnagogiques". La couverture, conservée, est également illustrée d’une belle et onirique lithographie d’Henri-Alfred Darjou. (Caillet, III, p. 259. Ellenberger, ‘Histoire de la découverte de l'inconscient’, p. 337-339 et passim. Jean Garrabé, ‘Hervey de Saint-Denis’. In « Annales Médico-psychologiques », 2005, 163, p. 716-717). Rousseurs et brunissures, plus soutenues à certains feuillets. Très bon exemplaire, bien relié à l’époque, entièrement non rogné. [Attributes: First Edition]

         "Cape Virginia: Straits of Magellan" [i.e. Cape Virgenes, Argentina].

      Straits of Magellan: aboard HMS Salamander, [1867]. Original watercolour over pen and pencil, 80 x 298 mm; signed, inscribed with title on verso; mounted. Fine original watercolour view by Alexander Rattray (1830-1906), naval surgeon aboard HMS Salamander, of the ship making steam with sails furled off Cape Virgenes, the southeastern tip of continental Argentina. Ferdinand Magellan reached it on 21 October 1520 and discovered the strait, later named for him. Rattray depicts the Salamander on her way back to England from Australia where she had taken part in the foundation and subsequent supplying of the Somerset Mission, the short-lived settlement on Cape York, north-eastern Australia.The ship was assigned to the Australia Station in 1863, under the command of John Carnegie. As well as her involvement in the Somerset settlement, she also transported the party to set up the coaling station at Albany passage. Under Captain (later Vice-Admiral) George Nares she undertook survey work along the Great Barrier Reef; many places were named after members of her crew, including both Hayman and Hamilton Islands, as well as Langford, Eshelby, Dent, Arkhurst, Henning, Arnit and Gumbrell Islands. The expedition also named both Double Cone Islands and Nares Rock. When she ran aground east of Magnetic Island off Townsville she also had the dubious honour of the offending reef being named for her, even though she had successfully refloated. In 1866 they took the crew of the wrecked Conqueror from Somerset to safety at Port Denison (modern Bowen).Designed by Joseph Seaton as a steam vessel, the ship had been launched in 1832; by the time of this drawing in the mid-1860s she was a well-travelled old stager who had seen action off Spain in the 1830s and in the East Indies in the 1850s as well as service on the South America Station, in the Pacific, west Africa, and the Mediterranean. One of the first paddle warships built for the Royal Navy, she originally had a schooner rig, subsequently changed to the barquentine rig shown here.The Salamander also undertook survey duties of Wilsons Promontory and Port Phillip Bay under Nares, finally heading back to England in mid-1867. At the end of the year she was paid off into the Steam Reserve, subsequently doing more basic duties as a tug or a transport, finally being broken up in 1883. Provenance: With Martyn Gregory Gallery, London in 1993 (described in their catalogue 62, "Alexander Rattray 1830-1906, Naval Surgeon"). In fine condition.

         O-Kee-Pa: a religious ceremony; and other customs of the Mandans

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott & Co, 1867. Octavo. (10 x 6 3/4 inches). Half-title. 13 coloured lithographic plates by Simonau & Toovey, all after Catlin. Minor foxing. Publisher's green cloth, upper cover blocked in gilt, expertly rebacked with green clothFirst American edition of one of the rarest works by the noted painter of American Indians: this is Catlin's last major publication.Catlin's account of O-Kee-Pa, or Buffalo Dance, a controversial Mandan religious ceremony, is of particular importance as he witnessed the sexually-charged and barbaric dance first hand shortly before the upper Missouri tribe was decimated by a small pox epidemic in 1837. Catlin here gives a full account of the ceremony, illustrating the rituals and self-tortures of the Buffalo dance in thirteen beautifully executed colour lithographs. An unauthorized account of the ceremony was privately circulated by the Philobiblon Society in 1865, prompting several, including Henry Schoolcraft, to question Catlin's descriptions. Thus, Catlin published the present work, and included within a letter by Prince Maximilian Wied zu Wied, who visited the Mandan with Karl Bodmer, though did not witness the ceremony first hand.The explicit details of the sexual elements of the ceremony were considered too shocking for the general public and were included in a very rare separately-issued three-page "Folium Reservatum," purportedly issued in an edition of approximately 25 copies (not present here, as usual).Bennett p.22; Field 262; Howes C244,"b"; McCracken Catlin pp.101-108; Pilling 693.

         An Elementary Treatise on Determinants with their application to Simultaneous Linear Equations and Algebraical Geometry

      Macmillan & Co, London 1867 - An Elementary Treatise on Determinants with their application to Simultaneous Linear Equations and Algebraical Geometry by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll), Student and Mathematical Lecturer of Christ Church, Oxford. A scarce edition of Dodgson's works of higher mathematical study and in a very good state. In his Diaries of Feb 27th 1865 Dodgson recorded that he had "discovered a process for evaluating arithmetical Determinants, by sort of condensation, and proved it up to 4 (2) terms". (Determinants. are the sum of of the products of a square block of quantities. Their condensation, or reduction to simpler forms, facilitates the solution of simultaneous linear equations, and other similar problems." Williams pp 39-14). Dodgson's paper on the subject was read to the Royal Society on May 17th 1866 and was under repeated revision. Dodgson commented that "this little book has given me more trouble than anything else I have ever written: it is such entirely new ground to explore". The number of first printings was low, approximately 750 although it is not known the exact number published. Provence: A copy of Denis Crutch who revised "The Lewis Carroll Handbook" bibliography. Williams, Madan, Green and Crutch 1957. A rare find of one of Dodgson's unique works. Original brown cloth with dulled gilt lettering on the spine. Covers lightly soiled, mild shelfwear and spine ends lightly chipped. The dark green end papers are clean with tiny booksellers stamp on the front free page. The contents are clean. 4to. 143 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County And other Sketches.

      New York C.H. Webb, Publisher 1867 - An Excellent Copy of Twain’s First Book TWAIN, Mark. The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, and Other Sketches. By Mark Twain. Edited by John Paul [pseud. of Charles Henry Webb]. New York: C. H. Webb, Publisher, 1867. First edition of author’s first published book, first issue (single ad leaf on cream-yellow paper inserted before title; p. 66, last line, "life" unbroken; p. 198, "i" in "this" unbroken). [1, blank] [1, publisher’s ad] 198 pp. Twelvemo (6 5/8 x 4 1/2 inches; 170 x 112 mm). Original purple gilt-lettered cloth, gilt jumping frog in diagonal position on lower left corner of upper cover, blindstamped jumping frog in same position on lower cover. Beveled edges. Spine lettered in gilt. Brown coated endpapers. Mild wear and light repair to cloth at corners and spine extremities. Inner hinges repaired. Some mild staining to initial blank. Previous owner’s name and address in pencil on front free endpaper. Neat ink stamp on front blank, neat bibliographical notes in pencil on rear free endpapers. Previous owner's ink signature on title-page. A bright, very good copy which shows very well. Housed in a quarter brown morocco slipcase. Mark Twain, with his account of the jumping frog, produced the most famous tale in California, if not Western, history. This little gem of humor that introduced the famed author’s first book gave him international prominence. As his publisher, Charles Henry Webb, noted, "By his story of the Frog, he scaled the heights of popularity at a single jump." Twain’s compilation of tales, along with those of Bret Harte, continues to romanticize and popularize the Gold Rush. The story of the lead-loaded frog (named Daniel Webster) made Angels Camp one of the best-known tourist attractions in the gold country. Twain first learned of the story of the jumping frog when he prospected in the vicinity of Jackass Hill in Tuolumne County. On a rainy January day in 1865 Twain and a friend, James Gillis, went into the bar at the Angels Camp Hotel in nearby Calaveras County and heard a gentlemen by the name of Ben Coon tell the amusing story of the trained frog. He repeated the story to Artemus Ward, who in turn encouraged him to write it up and send it to Ward’s publisher, Carleton, in New York. Carleton was not impressed and sent the story on to Henry Clapp who published it in the final issue (November 18, 1865) of the Saturday Press of New York with the title of "Jim and His Jumping Frog." The tale’s popularity spread across America and Europe. When it reached San Francisco, the story was reprinted in the Californian, a weekly periodical published by Charles Webb. The Californian featured one major change, a new title: "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County." Encouraged by the huge response, Webb urged his author to publish a book of his Western yarns. The book, packed with twenty-seven short stories, appeared in May 1867, bound in cloth with a beautiful gold-stamped frog emblazoned on the front cover. Webb himself provided the foreword, writing under the name of John Paul, and the American News Company served as the distribution agent. It sold for $1.25 a copy. Printed with stereotype plates, slightly different issues bound in various colors of cloth were produced, and in September 1867, George Routledge & Sons of London published a wrapper-bound edition embellished with a spectacular frog. Oscar Lewis traced the history of this famous tale in The Origin of "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County." According to Lewis’s scholarly investigation, a version of the frog story first appeared in the June 11, 1853, Sonora Herald as "A Toad Story," and then in the December 11, 1858, issue of the San Andreas Independent.

         THE CLAVERINGS

      1867 - With Sixteen Illustrations by M. Ellen Edwards. In Two Volumes. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1867. 2 pp undated ads in each volume. Original green cloth elaborately decorated in blind and gilt, beveled. First Edition of these adventures of Harry Clavering, beginning with Julia Brabazon jilting him in favor of a wealthy old debauchee.~It is a novel of atmosphere, and the atmosphere is of that sort very dangerous for the English novelist.; the green-lighted, close-scented gambling rooms, the shabby adventures of half-deserted spas, the shelving beaches of foreign watering-places, concealed accents, stolen passports, impoverished counts and impertinent ladies' maids. [Walpole, quoted in Gerould] ~Trollope himself later recalled that "I consider the story as a whole to be good, though I am not aware that the public ever corroborated that verdict." There were no subsequent two-volume editions following this first one.~Sadleir notes two very similar binding variants: one with the cloth stamped in gilt and in black, and the other identical except that the black stamping is replaced by blind-stamping. This copy is of the latter variant. Sadleir opines~I do not know which style is earlier, but would, on general principles, incline to favour that with the additional black-blocking. Not only is it less frequently found than the [blind-stamped] one above described, but publishers tend to simplify rather than to elaborate a binding design for economy's sake if for no other reason.~This set is in very good or slightly better condition -- quite clean and bright, with light wear along the spine ends and joints (the latter is typical for these volumes, because each spine bulks wider than the rest of the volume); the original terra-cotta endpapers are still here, with only minor cracking.

         Routes in Abyssinia

      1867 - Presented to the House of Commons, in pursuance of their Address dated November 26, 1867. Folding lithographed map, c.36? x 24?, coloured in outline at the rear, further folding outline map. Ink stamp of the Law Society to the last page only, some light browning, a little marginal brittleness with a few leaves with splits, title page chipped at the fore-margin, but overall very good in modern calf-backed marbled boards. [iv], 252pp. Printed for Her Majesty's Stationery Office by Harrison and Sons, ?The object of this compilation is to collect together the information on the routes in Abyssinia which is scattered through the works of different travellers.? [From the Preface by Colonel Henry James, Director of the War Office Topographical and Statistical Department.] Includes extracts from the works of Salt, Bruce and of a more contemporary nature, Dr. Beke and MÜnzinger, extracted from the Abyssinian Blue Books. The excellent folding map was compiled by E.G. Ravenstein, Geographer at the Topographical DepÔt, from the same range of sources and was produced on the DepÔt's lithographic press under Cooke's superintendence. Cooke had access to the library and map-room of the Royal Geographical Society in the preparation of this work, and ?In return the Topographical Department supplied the RGS with copies of the textual information it compiled and views it reproduced by both lithography and photography.? [Ryan Picturing Empire. p.84] Before entering the War Office Cooke had distinguished himself at the Siege of Sebastopol, directing the right attack, he was later to Command the RE in Bermuda and at Aldershot. Quite an uncommon item, OCLC lists eight copies with this pagination, but without mentioning the maps. Two further copies are mentioned, of the same date, with maps, but of only 109pp. NSTC further muddies the waters by recording a ?Second Edition with Maps?, but without offering a pagination.

Second, Tycho demonstrated that the path of the comet cut across the orbits of several planets, proving they were not borne on solid crystallin spheres. Third, Tycho began to analyze the position of the comet within the planetary system from a Copernican perspective. On this basis, he gradually began to develop a new understanding of the whole planetary system" (Christianson, On Tycho's Island S. 63). - Nahezu fleckenfreies und wohlerhaltenes Exemplar

         A Superb Collection of Photographs of Italy

      Italy: Alinari, 1867 A superb set of monumental early photographs of Italy by Fratelli Alinari of Florence, the world's oldest photography firm. Large folio (20 x 25 in.). Two volumes. Contemporary quarter calf. 134 albumen prints, mounted on heavy paper, each with manuscript caption. Various sizes, from 16½ x 21½ in. mammoth prints to several 3 x 4 in. prints. Some foxing, almost exclusively limited to margins of mounting paper. Some wear to binding, but a very handsome volume, with the photographs generally in fine condition. Magnificent photographs from masters of the genre. Fratelli Alinari, founded in Florence in 1852, is the world's oldest photography firm. The three Alinari brothers pioneered the use of the camera for reproducing artwork and architecture from the great Italian galleries for public consumption. They are also known for their advocacy of the photographic portrait and for their photographs of Italian buildings and monuments. "The Alinaris were called to all the most important exhibits of the age. ... The Alinari images played a fundamental role in the perception and knowledge of the Italian work of art" (Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography). In these two volumes, the Alinaris have focused on the architecture of the great cities of Italy. They capture the neoclassical elements of building façades and interiors as well as other city structures with exquisite detail and precision. They approach each subject from a unique perspective chosen to capture and draw attention to its most intriguing features - from the monumental Duomo and Campanile (dome and belltower) in Florence, to the balustrades of the Rialto Bridge in Venice, to the arches and columns of a cathedral doorway in Verona. Volume I is devoted to Venice, including the Palais Ducal, St. Mark's Place, and the Grand Canal. Volume II contains images of Florence, Pisa, Bologne, Padua, and Verona, including landscapes, architectural views, and occasional reproductions of famous works of art. These two volumes present an opportunity to acquire superb, early large-format images of Italy's most famous buildings and settings in extraordinary high-quality prints by the most famous photographer in the field.

         An album of 20 excellent views of Niagara Falls

      20 albumen prints including 9 mammoth plate (16 x 20 in.) photographs, mounted. Half green morocco, gilt-stamped on the upper board "Niagara Falls." Binding worn but sound and attractive. Early German inscription on front pastedown, translated as follows: "From the estate of Uncle Erdwin and Aunt Tony Amsinck. The pictures are from the year 1867. (see their photo on the third-to-last page) Page 10, on the top left." Slight staining, occasional foxing or fading to images. An outstanding album containing beautiful and unusual images including, as its final image, one of the most remarkable North American photographs of the period. This unique artistic photograph album is linked to three historically important Niagara Falls photographers: George Barker (a Canadian by birth who owned studios in both London, Ontario, and the Niagara Falls region), Platt D. Babbitt (with whom Barker is known to have worked), and Samuel J. Mason (a prominent portraitist and landscape photographer). The combination of their skills and the extraordinary vistas of the American and Canadian Niagara Falls has resulted in an album of photographs of great beauty. Further study is needed to make direct attributions for many of the photographs in the album. Evidence suggests that many are by George Barker, but because a studio fire destroyed his archive in 1870, except his stereoviews, certain attribution is difficult. Several of the photographs show the suspension bridge connecting Ontario to New York, while others are unusually large and high quality photographs of Niagara Falls themselves. Photographs of Niagara Falls are not uncommon because the natural wonder has long attracted artists, admirers and visitors, but albums of this high quality, great beauty and large format are now rare. The final photograph, a particular highlight, is the impressive seemingly moonlit photograph, attributed to George Barker. This magnificent photograph compares favorably with the work of any of the great European or North American photographic artists of the period. 1. Barker, George (attr.). Niagara Falls, American and Horse Shoe/Canadian Falls. Albumen print, 6.75 x 8.75 in. Contemporary manuscript caption: "Niagara Falls." Image related to Barker's stereoview, "Prospect Point." The final photograph of the album is an astonishing image of the Canadian and American Falls under what appears to be moonlight. Born in London, Ontario, George Barker became a very influential landscape photographer. At his death he was hailed as the "eminent photographer of Niagara Falls." This photograph is clearly related to Barker's stereoview Prospect Point. Both images were taken from the same vantage point and both demonstrate the illusion of night. Further, Barker's stereoviews 927 American Fall-- Moonlight--Niagara and Niagara Falls by Moonlight reflect the photographer's desire to make pictures that looked like night. With these stunning images Barker showed that his accomplishments far surpassed those of ordinary 19th-century landscape photographers. The Charles Bierstadt photograph Falls from the New Bridge, Moonlight, Niagara, NY also relates to the present image, but because Bierstadt almost exclusively made stereoviews, attribution to that photographer is unlikely. Other than large- format photographs and stereoviews sold before 1870, little of Barker's work survives because his archive was consumed in a fire in 1870, five years after he established his own photography business in Niagara. Pre-1870 images of this size and beauty are rare. This photograph was likely taken during the day and made to look like night through a complex compositing process in which two negatives were placed on top of each other during printing. Still, even during the day the long shutter speed of 19th-century cameras made it difficult to create photographs of this quality. More details on request.

         PEER GYNT Et Dramatisk Digt

      Copenhagen Gydendalske Boghandel F. Hegel 1867 - First edition. Contemporary half black morocco over morocco covered boards. Gilt lettering and four raised gilt decorated bands to the spine. A very good, tall and unusually fresh copy, with just a little wear to the boards and extremities. Hinges cracking, but holding. Printed in a first edition of just 1,250 copies in 1867, Peer Gynt initially enjoyed great success; "Hegel [Ibsen's publisher] sent word that the first edition of 1,250 copies had sold out almost at once, and that a second edition of 2,000 was in the press". (Michael Meyer, 'Ibsen'). According to Francis Bull the play 'ranks still higher than any of his "realistic" plays, and may be mentioned in the same breath as such literary treasures as Hamlet, Faust, and Don Quixote' ('Ibsen - the Man and the Dramatist'). Copies of the first edition are incredibly rare in commerce. Only three copies are recorded by ABPC since 1975, and in the same period Jahrbuch der Auktionspreise für Bücher lists only four copies.
