      Longmans, Green, And Co., London - 1870 - Attractive and tight leather bound original 1870 edition of a classic work. 319 pages, with 33 superb illustrations by Ernest Griset. Beautiful marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Bright and clean. No previous owners ink signature or no other internal marks. No odors. Just light average agewear. === "Translated from the original Sanskrit by the noted Victorian Orientalist, Sir Richard Burton, these ancient Indian folk tales influenced such later works as 1001 Arabian Nights and Boccaccio's Decameron. As revealing today as they were in their own time, these stories will entertain and delight modern readers while illuminating the life and customs of classical India." ====== Sir Richard Burton: "Explorer, adventurer, translator, and student of Eastern sexual customs, was born in Torquay, England. He received an irregular education, which included an expulsion from Oxford University. In 1842 Burton joined the East India Company and went to India, where he learned the Persian, Hindustani, Afghan, and Arabic languages. Burton was the first European to reach Harar, the religious capital of Somaliland. He was the discoverer of Lake Tanganyika and explored in the Congo, the Cameroons, Dahomey, and Brazil. He was a pioneer ethnologist and anthropologist. Burton was a linguist of dazzling ability, speaking 29 languages and 11 dialects. He wrote 43 books on his travels and 2 volumes of poetry. In addition to translating the Arabian Nights, he translated) 6 volumes of Portuguese literature, 2 volumes of Latin poetry, and 4 volumes of Neapolitan, African, and Hindu folklore. Following a trip to the United States in 1860, Burton published an account of the Mormon settlement in Utah titled City of the Saints (1861). His wife, Isabel Arundel, frequently traveled with him on such journeys. After Burton died in Trieste in 1890, she burned many of his journals, as well as the manuscript of an uncompleted work called The Scented Garden Men's Hearts to Gladden. ========= Snip of preface: ‘The genius of Eastern nations,’ says an established and respectable authority, ‘was, from the earliest times, much turned towards invention and the love of fiction. The Indians, the Persians, and the Arabians, were all famous for their fables. Amongst the ancient Greeks we hear of the Ionian and Milesian tales, but they have now perished, and, from every account that we hear of them, appear to have been loose and indelicate.’ Similarly, the classical dictionaries define ‘Milesiæ fabulæ’ to be ‘licentious themes,’ ‘stories of an amatory or mirthful nature,’ or ‘ludicrous and indecent plays.’ M. Deriége seems indeed to confound them with the ‘Mœurs du Temps’ illustrated with artistic gouaches, when he says, ‘une de ces fables milésiennes, rehaussées de peintures, que la corruption romaine recherchait alors avec une folle ardeur.’ ========= Priced reasonably for your consideration, packaged carefully and will be shipped to you immediately.

Die vorliegende Schrift "Vindex" (= Verteidiger) ist die erste gedruckte Schrift im deutschsprachigen Raum, die für die Rechte der Homosexuellen eintritt 1867 trug Ulrichs seine Forderungen auf dem Deutschen Juristentag in München erstmals öffentlich vor, was tumultartige Szenen hervorrief. Auch Friedrich Engels äußerte sich gegenüber Karl Marx äußerst abfällig. - Ulrichs Forderung einer "urnischen Ehe", auf höchstes Unverständnis seiner Zeitgenossen stoßend, ist in Deutschland am 1. 10. 2017 Realität geworden. - Etwas berieben, tls. gering fleckig.

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

      1870. 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.

(6), 327, (1) pages and 1 plate ; contemporary green half calf (spine insolated, lack of leather of the top of the spine). The Henri Vallée copy, a prominent French veterinarian and microbiologist. Inscription on the back of the half-title of the first volume : "Alfort 1898 H. Vallée". "In 1865 Pasteur was asked to consider the disease of silkworms that had plagued France for almost 20 years, and which had cut silk production dramatically. Pasteur discovered that two diseases, pebrine and flacherie, were responsible, and that both were hereditary and contagious. He was able to introduce practical preventative measures, with considerable, if not total, success." (Norman). "This work saved the French silk industry, which had been crippled by the disease pébrine. After three years of research on the problem, Pasteur was able to show that the disease known as pébrine was caused by a parasite, and that the disease known as flacherie, which authorities had thought to be a manifestation of pébrine, was in reality a bacterial disease with its own character and etiology. He developed a screening method, still used today, that employs systematic microscopic examination to separate infected silkworm eggs from healthy ones."

The drawing is inscribed "_T Home of Charles Dickens" at the upper left corner and "from _T Wilderness Augt 3rd 1870" The initials are in each case written vertically and may be Emily Tennyson's monograph. Wilderness was the Tennyson summerhouse at Farrington on the Isle of Wight. The drawing comes from the Ellis family and presumably sent by a Tennyson (Emily Tennyson??) to Charles Ellis, a wine merchant with his own literary aspirations who served both the Tennyson family and the Dickens family. The drawing is dated August 3, I870, less than two months after Dickens died on Jan 9, 1870.A wonderful item associated with two of England's (and the world's) most important literary men.

        Collection of six rare radical brochures against the Second French Empire.

      Mostly Paris & Bruxelles, 1852-1870. - A total of 764 pp., sometimes including the original wrapper covers. Bound in contemporary marbled half cloth with handwritten spine label. Collection of six rare brochures against the Second Empire, the Imperial Bonapartist regime of Napoleon III from 1852 to 1870. Includes an unknown, early pamphlet by Édouard Vaillant, Augustin Rogeard's most famous work inscribed to a fellow socialist, and the first authentic account of the Cayenne Penal Colony ever published. Contents: I) (V[aillant], É[douard]). La France et l'opinion. [Germany or Switzerland?], Bibliothèque revolutionnaire, (1867). 15, (1) pp. Extremely rare radical pamphlet against the Second Empire and "le maniaque Bonaparte", Napoleon III: a unique survival; not a single copy in library catalogues internationally. The anonymous author signs as "E. V. citoyen français", which the book's owner Charles Keller resolves as "E. Vaillant" in a handwritten table of contents on the final flyleaf. Édouard Vaillant (1840-1915), a member of the First International, had left France to study in Germany in 1866. He returned in 1870 and advocated the creation of the Paris Commune, after the crushing of which he had to flee to Britain, returning only after the 1880 amnesty. He remained active in socialist politics. - II) Rogeard, A. La crise électorale de 1869. Bruxelles, chez tous les libraires, 1869. (4), 74 pp. - III) Rogeard, A. Les propos de Labienus (vingt-deuxième édition). Précédée de l'histoire d'une brochure. Paris & Bruxelles, chez tous les libraires, 1870. 52 pp. Inscribed "au citoyen Charles Keller" by the author (Basel, 26 Dec. 1871). Cf. Stammhammer I, 206. Rogeard (1820-96) had had to flee to Belgium after ridiculing the Second Empire in this work (a fourth edition of which Karl Marx had in his library: MEGA IV.32, 1129). He returned after the proclamation of the Republic in 1870 and was elected to the Conseil de la Commune in 1871. After the fall of the Commune he took refuge in Vienna and later in Budapest, returning to France only after the amnesty of 1880. - IV) L'empire démasqué. Histoire abregée des crimes de Louis Bonaparte et de ses complices. Première partie: l'usurpation du pouvoir (= all published). London, Bruxelles & Geneva, Johan Harrison, 1863. VII, (1), 96 pp. Rare radical pamphlet against Napoleon III and the Second Empire. - V) Mayer, P. Histoire du deux décembre. Avec documents inédits et pièces justificatives. Deuxième édition. Paris, Ledoyen, 1852. (2), 355, (1) pp. Early account of the French coup d'état of 1851 and the ensuing revolts. Among the copious documentation are posters and calls to arms signed by Victor Hugo. - VI) Attibert, Fr. Histoire contemporaine. Quatre ans a Cayenne. Notes. Bruxelles, chez la veuve Verteneuil, 1859. XXVII, (1), 5-132 pp. First edition of this sensational account of four years of servitude in France's penal colony of Cayenne, written by an escapee - the first authentic report of the "guillotine sèche" to which the Second Republic sentenced hundreds of suspected republicans. - Some underlinings throughout. The Alsatian-born socialist and anarchist Charles Keller (1843-1913) was an early associate of Elie Reclus and Mikhail Bakunin. In 1868 he attempted a translation of Marx's just-published "Capital" but had to abandon the project. He participated as a delegate in the Paris section of the First International and in the Second Congress of the League of Peace and Freedom in Berne. As a member of the Commune, he was injured fighting on the barricades in 1871 and escaped to Basel. Returning after the amnesty and settling in Nancy, he established himself as a poet and writer of workers' songs. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        La bonne chanson

      Paris: Alphonse Lemerre,, 1870. Octavo. Near-contemporary French red half morocco, titles gilt to spine, marbled sides, "H.S." or "S.H." monogram gilt to upper inner corner of front board, marbled edges, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Ends and corners lightly worn, extremities otherwise slightly rubbed, internally clean, an excellent copy. First edition, one of 590 copies printed at the author's own expense, of his third collection of poetry, very scarce, and here bound in an attractive near-contemporary French binding, barely trimmed and preserving the first and final blank and the half-title. Verlaine's first six collections of verse had "very lmited distribution" and were still in stock with Lemerre in 1884 (see Philip Stephan, Paul Verlaine and the Decadence 1882-90, 1974, p. 56). The poet had a particular predilection for La Bonne Chanson, which was described by Victor Hugo as "a flower in a shell".
