        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1869 - 1869 Wisden Cricketers Almanac, Facsimile Wrappers

      1869. On offer here is an 1869 Wisden Cricketers Almanac in entirely original condition apart from the facsimile wrappers. 1869 is commonly regarded as the second scarcest Wisden after the 1875 edition. The copy on offer here has been recently fitted with facsimile wrappers which are in excellent, as new condition. The remainder of the book is entirely original. The title page has the odd very minor mark and the contents page has a little, very light foxing as does the last page - at page 120. Apart from this the contents are in absolutely immaculate, clean condition - original, unmarked and clean. A really excellent example of a very scarce year.

        THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES By Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.

      London: John Murray 1869. Fifth Edition, with additions and corrections. (Tenth thousand). Original green cloth with gilt titles to the spine. 8vo. xxiii, 596pp. Black endpapers. A very good copy indeed, the cloth very clean and bright, the binding square and tight with some bumping at the extremities and a short tear to the head of the spine. The contents are entirely complete and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. The hinges remain sound to the front and rear. Bookplate of William H. Field to the front pastedown. Fold-out diagram present opposite page 132, as called for. An attractive example in excellent original condition. This fifth edition quotes for the first time the phrase "Survival of the Fittest" , a term often attributed to Darwin but by his own admission borrowed from Herbert Spencer. "I have called this principle, by which each slight variation, if useful, is preserved, by the term Natural Selection, in order to mark its relation to man's power of selection. But the expression often used by Mr. Herbert Spencer of the Survival of the Fittest is more accurate, and is sometimes equally convenient." (Freeman 387).

        Poems - FIRST EDITION IN A FINE BINDING, WITH AN AUTOGRAPH LETTER

      London: F.S. Ellis. First Edition, first issue. 19 x 12cm (8vo), bound by Zaehnsdorf (stamped in gilt to lower fr. turn-in). [1]-[xii], [1]-282 pp. With an autograph letter addressed "My Dear Brown" and signed "DGR" tipped to the ffe, arranging a dinner date with his good friend Ford Madox Brown. Handmade paper by Strangeways & Walden, London, page 275 numbered erroneously as 27 (indicating first issue). Full leather with five raised bands, elaborate gilt design reproducing the original design by DGR himself as it appeared on the publisher's green cloth, here accomplished by Zaehnsdorf of London, recently restored and rebacked in leather.�Rossetti exhumed the only manuscript of his Poems in 1869 from the grave of his wife & the most famous of the Pre-Raphaelite models, Elizabeth Siddal, who had died of a laudanum overdose in 1862. The 1870 volume of Poems was put together with immense care and deliberateness. Every aspect of the work, including all of its production features, was subjected to the most careful scrutiny. In fact, DGR not only wrote the book, he designed it, from cover to cover. He imagined it as a coherent statement of his life and purposes as a poet, which meant as a poet who was also, like Blake, a visual artist.

        Phineas Finn.

      London: Virtue & Co.,, 1869. The Irish Member. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green pebble-grain cloth, titles to spine and covers gilt within decorative quatrefoil stamped in blind, red and white endbands, fore and bottom edges untrimmed, pale yellow endpapers. Wood-engraved frontispiece with tissue-guard and 9 similar plates to each volume, all after John Everett Millais. W. H. Smith subscription library plate to vol. II front pastedown and apparently effaced from vol. I. Spines rolled and slightly darkened, extremities bumped and rubbed, a few small marks to covers with pale mottling to front of vol. I, edges toned, very small chip to upper inner corner of vol. I sigs. L5-8. An excellent copy, internally crisp and the plates especially bright. First edition, from the library of Walter E. Smith, the pre-eminent modern bibliographer of 19th-century fiction and author of Anthony Trollope: A Bibliography of his First American Editions, with his pencilled ownership inscription to the initial blank of the first volume. Phineas Finn first appeared as a serial in Saint Paul's Magazine from October 1867 to May 1869, and was published by Virtue in March. The inexperienced publisher paid £3200 for the copyright, marking "the summit of Trollope's achievement as a novelist-earner", though his gamble was not a successful one, and "shortly after the book was published, James Virtue went out of general publishing altogether Â… [B]efore he had time to sell many copies, he disposed of the copyright and was consequently debarred from putting the balance of his printed sheets on the market" (Sadleir, pp. 290-91). Copies in the original Virtue cloth are scarce as a consequence, and all the more so in collectable condition, the lending library plate to vol. II testifying to the fate of most Trollope first editions.

        An Inquiry into The Nature and Causes of The Wealth of Nations.

      Oxford: Clarendon, 1869., 1869. First edition edited by Rogers. 2 volumes. Octavo. Finely bound by Bayntun in half red morocco over red cloth boards, with raised bands, gilt titles and gilt decoration to spine; top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. Binding shows well, with only minor signs of shelfwear, slight bumping to corners. Internally clean and free from spotting. Binder's stamp to front free endpaper, "Bayntun, Binder, Bath, Eng". Smith, one of the pillars of the Scottish Enlightenment, was a moral philosopher in addition to being an economist. In The Wealth of Nations, Smith laid the intellectual foundations for a liberal, free-market society, and in so doing revolutionized the understanding of how societies, governments, and markets interact. However, he insisted, from "The Theory of Moral Sentiments" onwards, that the 'invisible hand of the market' would regulate capitalist impulses and channel excessive behaviour into productive and beneficent projects. The Wealth of Nations further addresses questions of sovereignty of colonies, the origins of coinage, and the concept of credit, all of which would have profound influence on the germinating United States of America, which declared independence in July 1776, the same year that Smith's work was published. An attractively bound copy of the single most important work in economic history.

      , [August 1869]. - 3 pp. ½ . 8vo (132 x 102 mm). Blue paper. Après la mort de son ami d'enfance, Louis Bouilhet, le 18 juillet 1869, Flaubert se démène pour faire représenter sa pièce MademoiselleAïsséet faire publier ses Dernières chansons.Il écrit au fils adoptif deBouilhet, Philippe Leparfait : "Camille Doucet est enthousiasmé d’Aïssé & prétend que ce sera un succès colossal. Je vais tâcher d’avoir le père Beauvalet pour le rôle du Commandeur -- & Berton le père pour le chevalier. Ces MM m’ont proposé le fils qui est déjà engagé à l’Odéon j’ai dit merde très fortement". Il essaye de faire paraître des pièces inédites dans Le Moniteur: "il ne serait pas mal, d’ici à là pièce, d’en publier trois ou quatre pour soutenir l’attention sur notre propre vieux". Il demande à Leparfait "d’en copier quelques-unes. -- Qui ne soient ni politiques ni religieuses".Le 6 janvier 1872, Flaubert réussit à faire jouer Mademoiselle Aïssé à l’Odéon, maisaprès bien des difficultés et sans grand succès. La même année, il fait publier Les Dernières chansons, en les accompagnant d'une très belle préface.Références: G. Flaubert,Correspondance, IV, p. 92-93.

        Revue photographique des hôpitaux de Paris. Bulletin médical publié sous le patronage de l'administration de l'Assistance publique [première et deuxième années]

      1869 - deux volumes in-4, Paris, Adrien Delahaye, 1869-1870, , deux volumes in-4, [6]-189-[3] + [4]-256 pages, 66 planches contrecollées sur papier fort et montées sur onglets in fine, une grande planche dépliante, demi-chagrin rouge de l'époque, dos à quatre faux nerfs, cloisonnés à froid et filetés, Édition originale de la tête de collection de cette revue extrêmement rare, illustrée de photographies originales, dont quelques-unes ont été rehaussées à la main en couleur "lorsque le sujet le réclam[ait]". L'illustration comprend, au tome I, 35 tirages photographiques albuminés, une planche en couleurs et une grande planche dépliante en lithographie ; au tome II, 27 tirages et 3 gravures reproduites, de même, par procédé photographique. Montméja, chef du service photographique spécialement créé à l’hôpital Saint-Louis, fit paraître, en collaboration avec son professeur, l’éminent dermatologue Alfred Hardy, la "Clinique photographique" en 1868, illustrée de clichés rehaussés en couleurs montrant les pathologies de la peau. « La Revue photographique des hôpitaux de Paris » est le prolongement naturel de cette publication ; son dessein est de montrer les figures du corps, de ses maux et de sa pathologie dans ce qu'elle a de plus intéressant et de plus rare. En effet, les cas étudiés et illustrés relèvent soit de la tératologie (une femme tétramaze, un anencéphale.), soit des maladies extrêmes de dermatologie (acné et psoriasis), d'orthopédie (luxation et fracture), ou encore d'ostéologie (exostose, arthropathie, déformation et élephantiasis). Le principe de Montméja était de confier à des spécialistes des articles décrivant des cas pathologiques remarquables qui seraient illustrés d'une photographie ; ce choix d’illustration présentait l’avantage d’être moins coûteux que la production et le tirage de gravures et surtout d’être plus fidèle à la réalité. La revue qui parait en livraisons jusqu’en 1876, est d’abord publiée en collaboration avec Jules Rengade (1841-1915), autrement connu sous son nom de romancier Aristide Roger. Il est ensuite rejoint, dès 1870, par Désirée-Magloire Bourneville, qui sera plus tard à la rédaction d'une autre fameuse revue illustrée de photographies, l'"Iconographie photographique de la Salpêtrière". Volumes comprenant les photographies célèbres de la fillette Blanche Dumas. Quelques rousseurs pâles dans le texte et un cahier bruni, rousseurs éparses sur certaines planches ; les photographies ont particulièrement bien conservé leur contraste général. Pages 98 à 112 placées entre les pages 80 et 81. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed "Humperdinck" to Rainer Simons

      - A highly interesting letter relative to Engelbert Humperdinck's unrealized opera Das Wunder von Köln (The miracle of Cologne) to a libretto by his former student Rainer Simons (1869-1934), founder and first director of the Vienna Volksoper (since 1903). Humperdinck never completed either Das Wunder von Köln or any other opera to a libretto by Simons; it remains unknown how and when the project failed (see the anonymous satire in the semimonthly magazine Der Kunstwart, second issue of November 1905, p. 227).The reference to the Three Kings is actually to their shrine at Cologne Cathedral. Saint Ursula is supposed to have suffered her martyrdom in Cologne. 4 pp. on one bifolium. Octavo. Dated Venice, June 10, 1905. In black ink. On stationery of the "Hôtel Restaurant Cavalletto Venise Serantoni Barbieri Propriétaires," with imprint in dark blue and with vignettes illustrating the hotel in dark olive green ink. In German (with translation).Humperdinck responds to a letter from Simons, author of the libretto for the opera Das Wunder von Köln [The miracle of Cologne]. Humperdinck had begun setting the libretto, but newspapers then leaked a rumor of the opera, prompting Humperdinck to stop work on the project; Simons's letter has rekindled Humperdinck’s interest, and the composer agrees to meet Simons on his way back to Berlin.".Your original proposal appealed to me from the beginning. especially because. [it] allows me to disregard all business obligations and to devote myself to purely artistic, creative work, heedless of baggage, just as it was the case twelve years ago with my Hänsel und Gretel. Back then I did not know yet what agents, publishers, and theater directors were like, let alone the public, which then did not even exist for me, the naïve homo novus. Happy times! In this joyful mood I already had begun to work in spring, when that stupid newspaper note appeared declaring that I composed Das Wunder von Köln. I was showered with inquiries and the like, and the pleasant incognito work I had been looking forward to so much was over. And. in early May. Fräulein Ebeling, the author of my Dornröschen [The sleeping beauty], suddenly died, whereby I. acquired full ownership of the piece, which I had wanted to rework into an opera earlier already. I have to confess that this plan. had kept going through my mind repeatedly during our trip. but equally happily I confess that your letter has changed my mind again. Meanwhile, I want to ask you kindly to think a bit about a new title because the old one, thanks to the newspapers, has become almost loathsome to me. .The title you have chosen. also. evokes associations with ideas that have nothing to do with the piece, with legendary ideas such as the Three Kings [Magi] or Saint Ursula and her 11,000 virgins. Whether we will come [to you]. by way of Achen Lake or by way of Rosenheim will only depend on whether we will make a detour to the Salzkammergut beforehand."Slightly worn; partially split at folds, with one small repair; small circular file hole to upper blank margin.

        An Inquiry into The Nature and Causes of The Wealth of Nations

      Oxford: Clarendon, 1869., 1869. First edition edited by Rogers. 2 volumes. Octavo. Finely bound by Bayntun in half red morocco over red cloth boards, with raised bands, gilt titles and gilt decoration to spine; top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. Binding shows well, with only minor signs of shelfwear, slight bumping to corners. Internally clean and free from spotting. Binder's stamp to front free endpaper, "Bayntun, Binder, Bath, Eng". Smith, one of the pillars of the Scottish Enlightenment, was a moral philosopher in addition to being an economist. In The Wealth of Nations, Smith laid the intellectual foundations for a liberal, free-market society, and in so doing revolutionized the understanding of how societies, governments, and markets interact. However, he insisted, from "The Theory of Moral Sentiments" onwards, that the 'invisible hand of the market' would regulate capitalist impulses and channel excessive behaviour into productive and beneficent projects. The Wealth of Nations further addresses questions of sovereignty of colonies, the origins of coinage, and the concept of credit, all of which would have profound influence on the germinating United States of America, which declared independence in July 1776, the same year that Smith's work was published. An attractively bound copy of the single most important work in economic history.

        Parasites animaux et végétaux de l'homme. Dessinés d'après nature par

      1869 - [1] feuillet de titre, 32 [Paris], Hôpital St-Louis, 1869, in-8, [1] feuillet de titre, 32 feuillets forts numérotés, dont 16 avec dessins sous serpentes, demi-chagrin vert foncé, ex-dono doré sur le plat supérieur: "A MR.LE DR HARDY SON ÉLÈVE DÉVOUÉ ARTHUR DE MONTMEJA", Manuscrit de parasitologie que Montméja destinait à son maître, l'éminent dermatologue de l'hôpital Saint-Louis Alfred Hardy (1811-1893); sur les 32 feuillets, la moitié comprend un dessin à la mine de plomb, figurant divers parasites du corps humain représentés sous grossissement et accompagnés d'une légende manuscrite à la plume (puce de l'homme, rouget, pou de la tête, pou du corps, pou du pubis, demodex folliculorum, végétations des follicules, favus, etc.) Les autres feuillets forts sont restés vierges; sur certains, Montméja a commencé à tracer le cadre et le cercle dans lesquels un spécimen de parasite aurait dû être figuré. Environ une soixantaine de feuillets blancs est placée entre les feuillets forts; peut-être devaient ils recevoir un texte manuscrit. Au moment de la confection de ce manuscrit, Arthur de Montméja venait juste de collaborer à la célèbre Clinique photographique de l'hôpital Saint-Louis (1868) avec Alfred Hardy; désigné chef du service photographique spécialement créé, il dirigea l'atelier où furent réalisés les premiers clichés et il fit paraître cette publication illustrant les pathologies de la peau. C'est à son maître qu'il comptait adresser ce manuscrit, certainement demeuré inachevé en raison des nombreuses activités de publications auxquelles il était occupé à l'époque. Montméja fut chef de clinique ophtalmologique; après avoir travaillé pour la Clinique d’Alfred Hardy, il publie, avec Jules Rengade et Désiré-Magloire Bourneville, la Revue photographique des hôpitaux de Paris (1869-1872), célèbre pour ses clichés représentant les maux et les pathologies du corps humains les plus rares et les plus spectaculaire. Propriétaire du château de Rouffilac (Carlux, Dordogne), il décède en 1910. Manque au dos. Quelques rousseurs pâles, une petite tâche en marge de 2 feuillets. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Storm in the Rocky Mountains, Mt. Rosalie

      London: Thomas McLean, 1869. Lithograph, printed in colours, by H.M. Long. Albert Bierstadt (1830-1902) was the nineteenth century chronicler par excellence of the American West. He undertook several expeditions to the Rocky Mountains and Yosemite Valley, where he made sketches of what would later become his most famous paintings. This particular work depicts light breaking through a bank of thunderclouds above a valley. Indians on foot and on horseback dash down a mountainside toward an encampment of teepees on the valley floor. This image epitomizes American nineteenth century landscape painting at its most intense and rapturous. This chromolithograph was issued by Thomas McLean as a pair to The Rocky Mountains (Landers Peak) . It was reported at the time that no fewer than twenty, and as many as thirty, stones were used to capture the rich, sumptuous palette of the original painting, which is now in the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Nancy Anderson and Linda S. Ferber, Albert Bierstadt Art & Enterprise , pp. 274-275, number 79, figure 90, illustrated in colour page 292; Deak, Picturing America , number 811 illustrated.
