        The Heathen Chinee.

      The Western News Company. Chicago. 1870. - 9 loose black and white lithographs, 7 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches, with original decorative envelope (7 3/4 x 6 inches). Light soiling, edge tears and wear to envelope, plus previous owner's name and date (July 3 1871) in ink and pencil to front cover. Toning to first sheet, otherwise very clean and bright. The lithographic printing of this set is particularly strong. A superior example of this unusual set. This is the first printing of the first independent (pirated) issue of Harte's poem, which first appeared as "Plain Language from Truthful James" in the September 1870 issue of the Overland Monthly( which Harte edited). Harte evidently wrote the poem as a space-filler and a satire on the anti-Chinese immigration sentiments of the Irish immigrant community, as expressed by the card sharp Bill Nye on sheet 6, "we are ruined by chinese cheap labor." In fact it was to have the opposite from desired effect (see the excellent article by Gary Scharnhorst "Ways That Are Dark": Appropriations of Bret Harte's "Plain Language from Truthful James" in Nineteenth-Century Literature, Volume 51, No. 3 December 1996.) Hull's illustrations added fuel to the popular racist reading of the poem, embellishing the poem with a scene of mob violence. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Original study for The Sirens

      1870 - BURNE-JONES, Edward. Large original study for The Sirens. No place, circa 1870. Colored chalks on brown paper, handsomely matted and framed. Image measures 14 by 18 inches; entire framed piece measures 19 by 25 inches. $16,500.Splendid original chiaroscuro colored chalk drawing, a large preliminary compositional study for The Sirens.Burne-Jones, leading painter and designer of Victorian England and among the most important of the Pre-Raphaelite artists, is best known for his collaborations with William Morris, for whom he designed stained glass and tapestries and illustrated some of the Kelmscott Press publications, including the magnificent 1896 Kelmscott Chaucer. Of his own haunting work he stated, "I mean by a picture a beautiful romantic dream, of something that never was, never will be"" in a light better than any that ever shone"" in a land no-one can define or remember, only desire"" and the forms divinely beautiful" (Chilvers, 79-80). This beautiful work is a preliminary compositional study for The Sirens, which Burne-Jones began to paint in 1870 but, despite many attempts over two decades, was never able to finish. The allegory of shipwreck does, nonetheless, appear in other of his works, including The Voyage to Vineland (stained glass window) and The Holy Grail (tapestry). A pastel [circa 1875] in a Spanish private collection and a watercolor [circa 1875] in the South African National Gallery are both reminiscent of this drawing. Exhibited: Mass Gallery (1967); Piccadilly Gallery (1971); Grolier Club (1971). Provenance: Virginia Surtees; Hartnoll and Eure; Kenneth A. Loft; Frederick R. Koch; Sotheby's.A lovely original work, wonderfully framed.

        Milano

      1870 ca.. Ampia veduta a volo d'uccello della città di Milano. La struttura compositiva dell'opera mira a mettere in risalto i monumenti cittadini. L'intenzione dell'autore è facilmente decifrabile nelle proporzioni innaturali che questi assumono rispetto agli altri edifici. Al centro della composizione la piazza antistante il Duomo, il quale si impone nella scena in tutta la sua maestosità. Affianco si erge la nuova Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, la costruzione finì nel 1867, prorpio qualche anno prima della pubblicazione dell'opera. La stampa incisa all'acquatinta è caratterizzata da una brillante coloritura alla gouache, che esalta in un simposio di colori i maggiori edifici cittadini. mm 205x585

Bound in recent black morocco by the Chelsea Bindery, titles to spine gilt, raised bands, single rule to boards gilt, twin rule to turn-ins gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. With 33 illustrations by Ernest Griset. First page partly split from spine. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. Originally issued serially in Fraser's Magazine during 1868. The collection is an abbreviated version of the Baital-Pachisi [Twenty-five Tales of a Vampire] - "an old and thoroughly Hindu repertory. It is a rude beginning of that fictitious history which ripened to the Arabian Nights' Entertainments, and which fostered by the genius of Boccaccio, produced the romance of the chivalrous days, and its late development, the novel - that prose epic of modern Europe ? It is not pretended that the words of these Hindu tales are preserved to the letter ? I have ventured to remedy the conciseness of their language, and to clothe the skeleton with flesh and blood" (Introduction).

        Complete set of French nineteenth-century children's alphabet blocks

      France: circa, 1870. Some repairs to reverse of the five paper guiding sheets.. Game comprising 24 timber blocks, each papered with illustrations on each face, with six chromolithographic paper guiding sheets each measuring 177 x 262 mm., original box with papered lid. French alphabet blocks, comprising a game for children wherein the blocks are rearranged on their different faces to form a picture alphabet with various items and animals including a zebra, duck, and a kangaroo. The set includes the original box accompanied by the six lithographic sheets that were dissected and pasted to the blocks (five of the sheets are loose, while one sheet is pasted to the front cover of the box itself). As such, these sheets form a guide for youngsters to reassemble the blocks accordingly, and learn the alphabet in the process. As the game is not titled, and none of its parts or packaging bears the details of the lithographer; details of its production are scant and it cannot be traced through the usual bibliographies. Nonetheless, it is most unusual to find an item for children of this age and composite nature in such good condition.

        The Mystery of Edwin Drood

      London - Chapman & Hall, 1870 Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. First edition.. A first edition of Dickens' Edwin Drood, bound in full calf, and illustrated by S. L. Fildes. Edwin Drood is famously unfinished: Dickens died while writing it, and the ending is unknown. Supplying endings has occupied writers ever since. However, most consider it possible to identify 'the murderer' from the hints within the extant book. With twelve plates of illustrations. Fildes worked in the social realist style, reflecting his lifelong concern for the plight of the poor and for social reform. While only some of the illustrations within this work reflect this concern, the expressive power of his black-and-white style is in evidence, and the illustrations add materially to the appeal of the book. Handsomely presented in full calf, with a frontispiece showing the author's portrait and an engraved half title. Condition: In a full calf binding with gilt borders and gilt detailing to the spine. Externally very smart with some light marking to the boards and light rubbing to the extremities. With a personal bookplate to the front pastedown. Internally, the frontispiece and engraved half title are somewhat spotted. Otherwise with only the odd spot here and there throughout. Overall: NEAR FINE.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1870 - 1870 Wisden Original Wrappers

      On offer here is a very rare 1870 Wisden still in it's original wrappers and in very good overall condition. As can be seen from the photographs, the front and rear wrappers are a little marked - mainly foxing. A facsimile spine has been added to the book in recent times. That repair was not carried out by me, but I suspect that at one time the book was rebound in hard boards and at some stage the book has been taken out of the boards and a facsimile spine attached. Internally, the title page and the first few pages have some foxing as do the last couple of pages but otherwise the contents are in excellent, clean, unmarked condition - most unusual for a book of this vintage. Overall, a really nice example.

Je ne vois pas que j'aie commis une injustice en redigeant le chapitre sur l'isle de Java [...] C'est dans l'intérêt de l'isle et de habitants mêmes que je proposerai de discuter le system Van den Bosch et la pratique coloniale des Hollandais. [...] (Br. v. 22. XI. o. J.) - "Voilà bien longtemps que je n'ai pas recu de vos nouvelles ! Vous ne m'en voulez pas de vous avoir confessé ce que je pense en general des decorations ? Mais je vous avoue que parmi toutes les decores [...] royales [...] il n'y a que deux que j'apprecierais neanmoins - une ordre anglaise et une ordre belge. Mais je ne ferai jamais des demarches et je ne voudrais pas non plus que des autres s'en donneraient des peines. Avez vous reçu les volumes que vous m'avez demandé ? Je vous les ai fait parvenir par la librairie de Gerolds( ?) avec le convoi de [...] le 20. Juin 1870 ! [...] Je n'ose pas dire combien je suis affligé par la guerre qui a eclatée parmi ces deux rivaux imposants ! Vous comprenez que mes sympathies sont pour les armes allemandes - car je considere cette guerre comme (6) une revange pour Solferino et - Querétaro ! - Je serai enchanté de recevoir de vos nouvelles et votre opinion sur l'etat actuel en France !" (Brief vom 31. VIII. o. J.)". - Der Brief vom 27. April mit einem alt montierten Zeitungsausschnitt.

        Annual Report of the Smithsonian Institution (82 volume set) (1870-1964, with some gaps)

      Washington : Smithsonian Institution 1870 - Massive 82 volume set. Hardcover, most in Smithsonian green cloth, with Smithsonian Seal in Gold on most front boards. Institutional stamp on title pages. Numerous plates and photographs throughout text. Some color plates, fold out maps. Most volumes in excellent shape, with tight bindings and attractive covers. Approximately 4 volumes have weak bindings or cracked spine hinges. Containing bound editions of the years: 1870, 1891-1910; 1912-1929 (61 vols.); 1950-1964 (17 vols.); as well as the 1849-1964 index volume and two additional volumes of Proceedings (1903), geographical tables. A mammoth collection spanning 94 years of the Smithsonian's history. Leonard Carmichael, Secretary of the Smithsonian, states that the Annual reports "a selection of papers (some of them original) embracing a considerable range of scientific investigation and discussion. The subjects treated in Smithsonian Report articles cover almost the entire gamut of scientific disciplines. If any subjects predominate they would be in the general fields of biology, geology, and anthropology." As well as, "astronomy, physics, chemistry, meteorology, medicine, and engineering." "Many of the earlier Reports contain articles of great historical interest as recording scientific discoveries which have exerted vast influence on the lives of all of us up to the present time. For example, Roentgen records in the 1897 Report his history of the penetrating radiation which he called X-rays. The beginnings of practical human flight are recorded by Wilbur Wright in the 1902 Report and Orville Wright in that for 1914. And by Wendell M. Stanley's attempt to relate viruses to cancer, genes, and life in the Report for 1957." (Carmichael, Index to Smithsonian Annual Reports, iii, iv p.) Please note that our set includes all of these groundbreaking reports. See the 1897 Report, "X-Rays," by W.C. Rontgen, p. 137-155. See 1902, "Some Aeronautical Experiments," Wilbur Wright, p. 133-148. (With photographic plates!). 1914, "Stability of Aeroplanes," Orville Wright, p. 209-222 (With photographic plates!). 1957, "The nature of viruses, cancer, genes, and life," Wendell M. Stanley, p. 357-370. Another interesting article from the 1927 Report is authored by Albert Einstein, "Isaac Newton," p. 201-207. In this article Einstein discusses Newton's work and lays out its limitations. He goes on to propose a General Theory of Relativity. (The next article is also fascinating, "The Nucleus of the Atom," by J.A. Crowther, discussing Bohr's theory of X-ray spectra and the discoveries of Ellis and Meitner.) Smithsonian gold seal on cover reads: "For the Increase and Diffusion of Knowledge Among Men." Note: Lacks the 1911 Report. This is an oversized or heavy set, which requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
