        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.

        [Photographs of Egypt].

      [Circa 1870-1880]. An extensive series of 113 stunning photographs of Egypt, most measuring 20,4x26,4 cm. (some slightly smaller - 20x25cm - some slightly larger - 26,5x21cm), all mounted on leaves measuring 30x42 cm. and bound in three exquisite near contemporary (ab. 1900) oblong black half morocco bindings with four raised bands, gilt spines, boards with elaborately gilt corners, gilt border and to the middle of front boards a gilt vignette, gilt title ("Egypten" i.e. either Norwegian or Danish for Egypt) and gilt volume-number. Housed in three equally elegant half morocco boxes with with gilt spines, marbled edges, and with middle of boards corresponding to those of the bindings. The boxes are also from ab. 1900. The boxes have a few traces of wear, but all in all, the set is in splendid condition.Many of the photographs have numberings and name of photographer in the negative, and several of them also mention the motiv. Many of the photographs are very interesting and show groups of people, for which especially Henri Bechard is famous - some are closer to portraits, while some portray daily life and the natives of Egypt. The views of the cities, sights, antiquities, streets, etc. are also stunning and many of them depict something that is not found in usual tourist-photographs. Volume I contains 48 photograps, 14 of which are signed Sebah, 16 Bechard, and 18 are unsigned. These 48 photographs are generally speaking from the city, showing daily life and the city (in this case presumably Cairo throughout) as such; 28 of them have people in them (many of them having an almost social realist feel to them), while 20 do not (many of them having an almost striking emptyness to them).Volume II contains 21 photographs, 12 of which are signed Sebah, 5 Bechard, and 4 are unsigned. These 21 photographs are thematically quite different from those of vol. I. They are from outside the city, showing mostly pyramids, temples, funeral chambers, and the hieroglyphic inscriptions/tables. They portray a vast landscape and only 5 of them have people in them - all clearly being workers.Volume II contains 43 photographs, 28 of which are signed H. Bechard, 9 Sebah, and 5 are unsigned. These 43 photographs are again quite different in theme from those of the two previous volumes. Here we have views of cities that are not Cairo, e.g. Karnak, Louqsor, Bal el Molouk, Thebes, Edfou, Assouan, etc., along with ruins and sights from those places. At a first glance, these photos seem more tourist-like than the others, but having a closer look reveals quite the opposite. 15 of them have people in them, but they are much less visible than in the other much more socially realistic photographs, and rather form the background to the imposing ruins. They seem more staged and yet more imposing. There is something that makes it difficult to take your eye from them, like the one from the desert, whwre you see a caravan of camels in the background and a dead, rotting camel in the foreground.. A stunning collection of photographs from Egypt, by the most famous photographers of the era, Hénri Béchard (and possibly also Émile Béchard), Pascal Sébah, and possibly others who worked with the two. The collection is unusal in its scope and in the presumably contemporary thematic division of the photographs into the three volumes, which provide us with a great pan-Egyptian cycle that gives us not only the relevant sights, views, antiquties etc., but also an acute portrayal of Egypt as a country and everyday life at the time. Both Sébah and Béchard did tourist photographs, which were beginning to become extremely popular towards the end of the 19th century. But they also both possessed an artistic view that often went beyond mere touristic depictions. They both liked to stage their subject matters, like one would do for a grand painting, and often the result would be very interesting, giving us today an idea about life in Egypt that we would not otherwise have. "Among the most sensitive and well-composed of the photographs taken in the Middle East are those of Béchard. Much of the Béchard work is characterised by figures carefully arranged in a painterly fashion and thoughtfully composed landscapes and architectural studies."A large number of such magnificent artistically and historically important photographs together with more down-to-earth, but stunning and realistic photographs of the actual cities, sights, and antiquities of Egypt make up the extremely well-rounded and exhaustive collection

        Theriaki and Their Last Dose: Letters of Fitz Hugh Ludlow and Others, to Dr. Samuel B. Collins, Relating to the Most Wonderful Medical Discovery of the Age

      Chicago: np, 1870. Hardcover. 8vo. 76 pages. Original blue polished calf, titled in gilt on front cover, a gilt leafy border (some light rubbing). FIRST EDITION of this scarce work on opium addiction: we find no copies at auction or in the trade according to online databases. Within twenty years of the arrival of the first Chinese in the United States, opium smoking had begun to spread. It was reported by Dr. harry Hubbell Kane that the first American smoked opium in 1868, making this work a very early study of the drug's presence in the US. Samuel Collins opened a clinic to treat opium addicts and published this early pamphlet, and more in the coming years, on his treatment. "Theriaki" was a term used to define an "opium eater," and is found in the works of Balzac and other 19th-century writers.

        Pen and Ink Sketches of the Life of a "Griffin" in India.

      [c.1870] - Landscape quarto (230 × 289 mm). Contemporary red morocco-grained skiver, matching cloth, initials gilt to the front board, marbled endpapers. A little rubbed and soiled, with some light restoration on the joints, light browning throughout, some off-setting from the illustrations to the facing leaves, first two leaves with short splits to the fore-edge, repaired, overall very good. 32 caricature sketches on 14 leaves, 8 full-page, the remaining 6 leaves divided into 4 panels, all with descriptive text on the versos of the previous leaf facing. The misadventures of a newly-arrived "Griffin" or young military officer in India in the mid-nineteenth century - drunken sports in the Mess, misunderstandings of local customs, outflankings by native servants, all very good-humoured and self-deprecatory. Similar to Charles D'Oyly's Tom Raw for the earlier part of the century. Charles Talbot Davenport (1848-1919) purchased a lieutenancy in the 83rd (County of Dublin) Regiment of Foot, later the Royal Irish Rifles, in 1867, he retired in 1881 as Paymaster with the rank of Major. This lively, and highly-detailed, if slightly naïve series of cartoons chronicle the typical experiences of a young officer in India. Inscribed, over his initials, by the artist on verso of the front free endpaper; "To my Grandson O[rmus] N[eville] T[albot] Davenport, at the request of Rose Dartnell - to whom and for whom these drawings were done by Charles Talbot Davenport when he first soldiered in India". An amusing ramble through the Raj with a somewhat bumbling, but engaging guide. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Tables et Gueridon S & Cie 11. Warenkatalog mit ca. 190 photographierten Louis XV - und Louis XVI-Möbeln

      Ohne Ortsangabe, ev. Paris, o. J. (ev. um 1870 - 97 Seiten (davon 24 ohne Photos) mit ca. 190 Orig.-Photographien. Folio (Format ca. 42x37 cm), Halblederband der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem Rücken. Fulminanter Warenkatalog eines uns unbekannten wohl französischen Möbelherstellers ev. französischer Nachbauten von Louis XV- und Louis XVI-Tischen und Beistelltischen! Der uns unbekannte Photograph hat 330 Möbelstücke, die wir in der Machart dem berühmten französischen Möbelhersteller Paul Sormani zuschreiben, werbewirksam photographiert. Alle Möbelstücke mit beigestellten vierstelligen Seriennummern. Entweder handelt es sich um einen Warenkatalog, was für die etwas schlichte Einbandart und der robusten Klammerbindung sprechen würde, oder es handelt sich um eine Bestandaufnahme einer wirklich kostbaren Sammlung ev. adeligen Ursprungs. Der Rücken ist mit dem Firmeninitial S & Cie goldgeprägt und mit der Nummer 11 versehen, was darauf deuten läßt, daß es wirklich eine unglaubliche Sammlung gewesen sein muß! Die Photos in unterschiedlichen Größen, auf großen Kartons fest montiert. Paul Sormani (1817-1877) war einer der führenden Möbelhersteller des 19. Jahrhundert, in dem besonders ab den 1850er Jahren durch den Modespleen der französischen Kaiserin Eugenie und Frau von Napoleon III. eine Rückbesinnung auf die ausgehende Rokokozeit in Möbelfragen Frankreich geradezu überflutete und Ebenisten wie Paul Sormani für steten Nachschub sorgen mußten. Das handwerkliche Können hinter dieser Mamutaufgabe ist aber bis heute unerreicht! Sormanis Nachbauten erzielen bis heute in Versteigerungen weltweit größter Auktionshäuser wie Sotheby`s oder Christie`s Höchstpreise! Die Präsentation in diesem Katalog deuten darauf hin, daß der mit der Photographie beauftragte Photograph sich alle Mühe geben mußte und die Möbel wirkungsvoll ausgeleuchtet hat! Hier handelt es sich also um ein Unikat, daß einen tiefen Einblick in die hohe Handwerkskunst französischer Ebenisten wiedergibt, auch wenn wir den entgültigen Nachweis nicht liefern können, trotz intensiver Recherche, nach der wir der Ansicht sind, vergleicht man die Arbeiten von Sormani mit unseren Photos, daß es sich durchaus um seine Arbeiten handeln könnte, daß es sich zumindest um Arbeiten französischer Kunsthandwerker von allerhöchster Qualität handeln muß! - Einige Photos etwas ausgeblichen, vereinzelte leichtere Knickspuren, der Einband berieben, in den Gelenken teils mit neueren etwas schmucklosen Gewebebändern verstärkt, mit marmorierten Vorsatzblättern, der Rücken teils etwas beschabt, die Ecken gestaucht, insg. wohlerhalten! - The album measures a hugh 42cm x 37cm. 97 pages of which only 24 are blank both sides, with approximately 190 individual photographs varying in sizes pasted on to the pages some pages front and back. Illustrating approximately 330 pieces of furniture. Looking at the style of the photography, the era of the furniture and the binding style of the album, raised bands and font etc I would expect this to date between 1870 and 1900. - There was a very important manufacturer of this type of high quality Louis XV and XVI inspired 19th century furniture called Paul Sormani but his pieces were signed Sormani el Fils (and son). The quality is astounding throughout. This could be a manufacturers catalogue that was on display at one of the many furniture expositions during the mid to late Victorian Era, and the fact that this vast volume is numbered 11 would suggest that there were other volumes preceding this and succeeding. Another explanation for this could be that this is a photographic catalogue for an important collection of furniture possibly a Royal Collection or a collection relating to someone clearly of importance. We have found that the way these pieces are displayed with four digit numbers and letters is exactly how for example a royal collection of furniture I was researching was catalogued, and also some of the photographs have numbers as high as 6000 which would suggest a vast collection.

        Sulla struttura degli epiteli pavimentosi stratificati.

      - Rendiconti del Reale Istituto Lombaro, serie II, Voll. III. Fasc. XVI. - Milano 1870, 8°, 8 pp., 2 Taf., feiner Pappband. Very rare offprint! - - "Nodes of Bizzozero in the skin. Another field of interest for Bizzozero concerned the histological structure of the epidermis and, in particular, the points of contact between adjacent cells of the stratum spinosum, erroneously considered at the time to be 'intercellular bridges' that established a cytoplasmic continuity. Bizzozero's attention was captured by some peculiar shapes that he observed in these cells, such that the processes projecting from the adjacent cellular elements met end-to-end in small, dense and dark nodules, later known as 'nodes of Bizzozero'. Bizzozero perceptively concluded that there was no cytoplasmic continuity between these cells, and that the dense nodules that we now call desmosomes or 'connecting bodies' (from the Greek words desmos for 'bond' or 'ligament' and soma for 'body'), were, in fact, bipartite adhesive structures to which both cells contributed. Bizzozero's conclusion was not accepted at the time, owing to the influence of Louis Ranvier, who propounded the opposite idea of cell-to-cell continuity. The definitive resolution of this controversy came with the advent of the electron microscope, which revealed a protoplasmic discontinuity at the level of the intercellular bridges, so confirming Bizzozero's theory."

Prudent René Patrice Dagron, was a prominent Parisian photographer who by 1860 was making microscopically sized photographs. During the Franco-German War of 1870, he applied his ingenuity to make microscopically reduced negatives of dispatches to be transmitted back and forth from Paris to Tours; these tiny pieces of gelatin film were rolled and inserted in quills that were attached to the wings of carrier pigeons. Most copies lack the original microfilm specimen, it is included here. Truthful Lens #42.

Puisse ce modeste essai ajouter quelques faits nouveaux aux excellentes notices qui ont été publiées sur ces îles, et contribuer à faire connaître un petit pays, trop vanté, trop décrié, auquel le percement de l'isthme de Suez, la tranformation de la marine marchande, et l'établissement de relations régulières avec la côte d'Afrique, peuvent donner une sérieuse importance ».
