        Insulinde: het land van den orang-oetan en den paradijsvogel. Uit het Engelsch vertaald en van aanteekeningen voorzien door P.J. Veth.

      Amsterdam, P.N. van Kampen, 1870-71.2 volumes. Original pictorial cloth gilt (rebacked with the original spines laid down). With 2 maps (1 folding and coloured) 12 wood-engraved plates and 41 wood-engravings. XXIV,528; X,552 pp.* First Dutch edition; first published in London 1869 The Malay Archipelago; the land of the orang-utan and the bird of paradise. - Wallace's (1823-1913) second, longest, and most significant expedition was to the relatively underexplored Malay Archipelago between 1854 and 1862. His journey took him first to Singapore and then Borneo, where he hunted and observed the orangutan (1855-1856). Heading east to the Moluccas group, he explored Amboyna and Ternate during 1857 and 1858. In 1858 Wallace traveled to Lombok and Bali in the Timor group, recognizing this group of islands as the boundary between the two primary continental influences dividing the natural history of the archipelago, the Indian sub-continent in the northwest, and Australia in the southeast. The remaining three years of Wallace's travels (1859-1862) took him east to the Papuan group, where he explored Macassar, the Aru Islands (where he studied the bird of paradise) then New Guinea. This was interspersed with return visits west to Ternate and Amboyna, and the Celebes group for the first time. He visited Sumatra before returning to England via Singapore (Speake, Encyclopedia, p.1264). This is a magnificent combination of interesting sketches of travel and vivid pictures of natural history.Bastin-Brommer N 564; Tiele 1195; Cat. KITLV p.5.

        Gratulationsschrift des Paedagogiums zu Basel. Inhalt: Beiträge zur Quellenkunde und Kritik des Laertius Diogenes. Von Prof. Dr. Friedrich Nietzsche.

      Carl Schutze's Universitaetsbuchdruckerei., Basel, 1870 - Basel, Carl Schutze's Universitaetsbuchdruckerei. 1870. 4°- Titel, gedruckte Widmung, 36 S., 7 S., 1 n.n. S. Blaugrüne Originalbroschur in neuer Pappschachtel. Schaberg 18. - Erste Ausgabe. - Die zweite grössere selbständig erschienene Publikation von Nietzsche, einige Monate nach dem Privatdruck "Homer und die klassische Philologie" erschienen. Die Schrift erschien als Festschrift zur Verabschiedung von Franz Dorotheus Gerlach der an der Universität und dem angeschlossenen Paedagogium fast 50 Jahre als Lateinlehrer gewirkt hatte. Nietzsche, der 1869 als Griechischlehrer, noch vor seiner Promotion eine Anstellung als Lateinlehrer erhielt, unterrichtete u.a. am Paegagogium genannten Gymnasium am Münsterplatz jede Woche 8 Stunden Latein. Der junge ehrgeizige Deutsche zögerte offenbar nicht sich mit einem weiteren Aufsatz, nach dem "Homer" einem Publikum in Basel bekannt zu machen, obwohl er wusste, dass der geehrte Gerlach sich gegen seine Anstellung gewehrt hatte. Die Schrift wurde in unbekannter Auflagenhöhe gedruckt. Schaberg vermutet jedoch mindestens in 100 Exemplaren. Der Drucker hatte Carl Schultze hatte offenbar Probleme mit dem Satz und bat Nietzsche in einem Brief um Hilfe. Es schlichen sich aber trotzdem 3 Druckfehler auf Seite 3 des Büchleins ein. Da Zeitnot und Geldmangel keinen Neudruck zuliessen, wurde den Exemplaren ein , hier leider fehlender Korrekturzettel beigegeben. Nietzsches Aufsatz umfasst die ersten 36 Seiten. Danach folgt die "Berichterstattung der Lehrer über den im Schuljahr 1869 auf 1870 erteilten Unterricht" in dem über Nietzsches Anstellung berichtet wird. - Die ersten 6 Blätter stockfleckig, danach nur noch wenige schwache Einzelflecken.

Unexamined out of the frame, the mat has a light stain on one corner, the image appears fine. A stereotypical but finely rendered image. Undated, our guess would be circa 1870-80. .

Fourth Edition, with Appendix, As to the 500,000 Men [with] IMPEACHMENT OF THE BRITISH LION BY THE BRITISH UNICORN AT THE QUEEN'S ARMS

      London: various publishers,. 1870-1871. Small octavo, eleven pamplets,. bound together in three-quarter black leather and marbled boards in one volume.. Last two titles have closely trimmed fore-edges with loss of a few. letters of text from right edges of most leaves, else all are very. good. None have their original paper covers. (#107140). Mostly first editions. Eleven pamphlets, ten of them issued as responses to THE FIGHT AT DAME EUROPA'S SCHOOL, Henry William Pullen's anonymously published allegory about the Franco-Prussian war (1870-1871). About 200 pamphlets, taking various sides of the question, appeared over the next couple of years. "The treatment by Pullen and his followers of modern mechanized war as a row among school boys is likely to strike a modern reader as either quaint or horribly naïve. The other irony triggered by a modern reading is that Dame Europa's School, an allegorical figment in 1870, was, a hundred years later, well on its way to becoming an actual political and economic institution, the European Union (which now, under the stress of a single currency, may be on its way back to being a fantasy). The only pamphlet here with futuristic content is THE BREAK-UP OF DAME EUROPA'S SCHOOL (Locke I, see below). The only pamphlet here not found in Locke (Spectrum I, II or III) is the last of these, IMPEACHMENT OF THE BRITISH LION BY THE BRITISH UNICORN AT THE QUEEN'S ARMS by Wykehamicus Friedrich, pseudonym of Frederick Gale (London: P. S. King, 34, Parliament Street, 1871), which abandons the schoolboy allegory of Pullen for a system based on animals (England = the Lion; Scotland = the Unicorn; France = the French Eagle; Germany = the double-faced Eagle; Russia = the Bear; America = the Stars and Stripes Menagerie, etc.), but it is still very much in the same spirit of half-playful, half-earnest satire." - Robert Eldridge. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy I, pp. 16-17 and Spectrum II, pp. 130-131.

        Autograph letter signed to Latimer Clark

      1870. Very Good. Ronalds, Francis (1788-1873). A.L.s. to Latimer Clark. Battle, April 11, 1870. 2pp. 181 x 114 mm. Provenance: Latimer Clark.Ronalds invented the first working electric telegraph in 1816. His device involved two synchronized clocks whose dials were marked with the letters of the alphabet; instead of hands, each clock had a rotating disk with a notch cut into it so that only one letter on the clock face was visible at a time (Standage 1998, 19). Ronalds placed one clock at each end of eight miles of insulated wire that he had laid down in his garden, and used electrical impulses to transmit signals between them. He wrote to Lord Melville of the British Admiralty offering to demonstrate his telegraph, but was rejected: John Barrow, secretary to the admiralty, wrote back to Ronalds saying that "telegraphs of any kind are now [after the conclusion of the Napoleonic wars] totally unnecessary, and that no other than the one now in use [a semaphore telegraph] will be adopted" (quoted in DNB). Ronalds did not pursue his telegraphy venture any further, but left a record of it in his Descriptions of an Electric Telegraph and of Some Other Electrical Apparatus (1823; reprinted in 1871 at the suggestion of Latimer Clark). It was left to Charles Wheatstone and William Fothergill Cooke, both of whom knew of Ronalds's experiments, to develop the first telegraph adopted for public use in Britain in 1845. In 1871, in response to a petition submitted the previous year to Prime Minister William Gladstone, Ronalds received a knighthood for his contribution to telegraphy. His letter to Clark expresses his gratitude for this honor and for Clark's part in it:"Your kind congratulations are peculiarly esteemed; for I have every reason to believe that your expressions of approbation &c. of my humble labours in Electro-Telegraphy have been influential in Her Majesty's gracious act in my behalf."I believe it is almost needless to tell you that the honour conferred is much less valued by me than the testimony it helps to afford to the validity of my early labours in the matter. . . .

        Personal Memoirs of John H. Brinton, Major and Surgeon U.S.V. 1861-1865

      8vo. Blue cloth with gilt spine lettering. 361pp. Frontispiece portrait. Very good. Mild bit of edgewear; inner hinges starting but expertly and archivally strengthened, thus tight; smallish age toned area on front endpaper from long-ago newsprint contact. Tight and nice first edition of this important and scarce military medical memoir. This exceptional copy bears the small custom bookplate on front pastedown of Christian Brinton (1870-1942), a noted medical professional well-known as an art critic collector and curator who promoted modernism and other art "isms." Above this bookplate, he handsomely pencils "C.W. Brinton / Bryn Mawr, Pa. 10/15/42" -- obviously pencilled shortly before his death some time later that year. The front flyleaf opposite this bears two additional Brinton family inscriptions: Nicely penned near the top is this presentation inscription: "Christian Brinton / with the regards of / his friend and / kinsman the editor / Jasper Yates Brinton / July 3, 1915." And below this is the following large, bold inscription: "To Christian Brinton / from / 'The dark haired girl' / on this fourteenth day / of November -- 1935 -- / 'Bidderhook' / Sarah Brinton Auchenried." John H. married Sarah Ward in 1866 and the couple had four children, the youngest of which was Jasper, who edited his father's posthumously-published autobiography. What Christian and Sarah's relationship to the author is remains unclear. James I. Robertson Jr. notes: "Brinton, a renowned surgeon and able scholar, provides intimate glimpses of both Federal hospitals in the West and the principal battlefields of the East." NEVINS I, 63.

        A Collection of five first editions by Alfred Tennyson from the Library of Arthur Tennyson, four INSCRIBED, three SIGNED.

      1870-86 All five volumes are in original green cloth, rubbed, with fore edges of boards uniformly affected by damp.1. The Holy Grail, Strahan, 1870. INSCRIBED on leading blank by Emily Tennyson: 'Arthur & Harriet From Alfred & Emily'. 2. Queen Mary, Henry S. King, 1875. INSCRIBED on e.p.: 'Arthur Tennyson from Alfred'. 3. Harold, Henry S. King, 1877. INSCRIBED on half title: 'Arthur & Harriet Tennyson from Alfred'. 4. The Lover's Tale, C. Kegan Paul, 1879. INSCRIBED on e.p. in pencil: 'A & H Tennyson, Clifton, Bristol, June 6th 1879 from the Author Ad. T.'. 5. Locksley Hall, Macmillan, 1886. With gift inscription for Christmas 1886 in pencil on leading blank, not from Alfred, and partially erased. Alfred and Arthur were the fourth and eighth of the twelve children born to the Reverend George Clayton Tennyson, 1778-1831, and Elizabeth Ffytche, 1781-1865. Arthur, 1814-1899, who married Harriet West, is one of the 'lost brothers' of the family; no letters to or from him are recorded in the Tennyson Letters ed. by Lang & Shannon. His grandfather suggests in 1827 that Arthur becomes a 'cadet or into the Navy'. In 1831 he writes: 'I don't know what Arthur is fit for. He still does not know the Multiplication Tables or indeed anything useful. He could learn if he would but he is idle as a Foal. He must be instructed before he can be fit for anything and his gestures and twitchings etc. are ridiculous and he would be a subject of ridicule anywhere.' Another letter from Cecilia Tennyson refers to Arthur as 'my poor brother' (1837). By 1843, Arthur was voluntarily admitted to Dumfries Asylum in an attempt to cure his alcoholism - and was visited there by Thomas Carlyle. Later in the year he travelled with Frederick and Septimus to Italy - and stayed there for the next twelve years. In 1852, Emily Tennyson refers to 'Arthur's book of sketches' and Charles says that he is 'going to put up at Arthur's'. He is mentioned only once in a letter from Alfred, writing to H.K. Atkinson in November 1873: '... Arthur is married, but has no family ...'. Little else seems to be known; Harriet West died at some point (date not found) and Arthur remarried Louisa Maynard. Interestingly, Alfred purchased his house, Farringford, on the Isle Of Wight, from the Reverend George Turner Seymour - of Clifton, Bristol, the address for Arthur & Harriet mentioned in the inscription to The Lover's Tale.

        THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD

      1870. With Twelve Illustrations by S. L. Fildes, and a Portrait. London: Chapman and Hall, 1870. Original green cloth decorated in black and gilt. First Edition in book form. This remains one of the great unfinished and unsolved literary mysteries: only six serial parts were written when Dickens died on the 9th of June 1870. Numerous other writers have completed the tale, as they saw fit; even today, this mystery prompts other mysteries -- such as the recent books THE LAST DICKENS by Matthew Pearl and DROOD by Dan Simmons.~This copy is in the first binding state (with the saw-tooth border on the front cover). Stab-holes are visible near the gutter of the leaves, indicating that this is a copy bound from those original serial parts (the publisher invited buyers of parts to bring them in to be put into the official binding); this copy accordingly does not include the ad catalogue found only in some copies that were not originally in parts. Condition is near-fine with very little soil or wear. Smith I pp 111-117.

        VOYAGE PITTORESQUE A TRAVERS L’ISTHME DE SUEZ Vingt-cinq grandes aquarelles d’après nature par RIOU, lithographiées en couleur par M. Eugène Ciceri.

      Paris, Dupont / Lachaud Editeurs, Imprimerie J. Claye, s.d. (1870 ca.) In folio gr. (mm. 560 x 390), tela edit. blu (con aloni, restaurata), tit. e belle decorazioni oro ai piatti, tagli super. dorati, pp. (4),100, con il ritratto di Ferdinand de Lesseps (ideatore ed esecutore del progetto del taglio dell?'istmo), una carta geografica litografata del Canale di Suez con incluse 3 piante: Port Said, Ismailia, Suez, e con 25 magnifiche tavv. f.t. (precedute da velina con didascalia) tratte dagli acquarelli dal vero di Riou, litografati a colori da Ciceri, che raffigurano vedute del canale, di città, paesaggi, feste dell?'inaugurazione (ottobre 1869). Quest?'opera monumentale, superbamente illustrata, ci conduce da Port-Said a Suez, attraverso Kantara - El Guisr - il lago Timsah - Ismailia - da Timsah ai laghi Amers fino al Mar Rosso. L?'A., il giornalista francese Marius Fontane (1838-1914), fu segretario generale della Compagnia del Canale di Suez e fu al seguito di Ferdinand Lesseps anche per i lavori dell?'itsmo di Panama. Rara "edizione originale", nella tiratura di 500 esemplari. Cfr. Brunet,VII,510: ?"Volume splendidement illustré..?" - Benezit,XI, p. 722 che dell?'artista francese precisa: ?"Edouard Riou (1833-1900), peintre, aquarelliste, dessinateur. Il traita particulièrement des sites de la foret de Fontainebleau et des scènes égyptiennes..?" - Lorenz,IX, p. 595. Le prime 2 cc. (occhietto e ritratto) restaur. e con un brutto alone all?'ang. infer. destro (cm. 16x18); sulle 12 cc. seguenti l?'alone si riduce e attenua sempre di più sino a scomparire. Dalla p. 17 in poi il volume (tutto su carta forte) è fresco e molto ben conservato.

(Titel), 16 Tafeln mit 165 montierten Originalphotographien. Einband etwas verstaubt und an den Kanten berieben, die Trägerkartons der Photographien mitunter etwas braunfleckig. [Text]: Oktav, bedruckte Org.-Broschur. 64 S., unbeschnitten, mit wenigen kleinen Randläsuren. Insgesamt gut erhalten. 2. Ausgabe (Broschur d. Textheftes vermutlich irrtümlich als 3. Ausgabe bezeichnet, Titel jedoch als 2.). - Nicht bei Garrison (History of Neurology), Taureck (Bedeutung der Photographie für die medizinische Abbildung im 19. Jahrhundert) oder anderen uns zugänglichen Bibliographien des Gebietes. - Von großer Seltenheit, über den KVK ist diese zweite Ausgabe nur in der Universitätsbibliothek Leipzig nachgewiesen, die erste Ausgabe von 1868 findet sich lediglich in den Pariser Bibliotheken BNF und Bibliothèque interuniversitaire de santé (Abfrage KVK am 16. Februar 2012), sowie der Sammlung photographisch illustrierter Bücher der British Library. Seit 1975 kein Exemplar auf deutschen Auktionen nachweisbar. - Roudanovsky (1829-1888) Schüler Brocas, wirkte als Arzt in Nijni Taguil, im russischen Gouvernement Perm im Ural. Sein mit Originalmikrophotographien illustriertes Atlaswerk, dem großen hysiologen Vlaude Bernard gewidmet, ist eine der frühesten Anwendungen der Photographie auf histologischem Gebiet. Roudanovsky publizierte 1876 noch ein weiteres Werk zu diesem Thema (De la structure des racines des nerfs spinaux et du tissu nerveux dans les organes centraux de l'homme et de quelques animaux supérieurs), das vermutlich von seiner Frau Olga aus dem Russischen ins Französische übersetzt wurde (das ist verm. auch der Fall bei vorliegendem Werk).

        Peasant life in Sweden. London, J. Childs and son, 1870. 8:o. Extra illustrated title,X,479,(1) pp. & 9 plates.

      1870 - Green publisher's cloth, spine gilt, covers with blindstamped border. Endpapers renewed, repairs to outer joints and spine, one of the plates with tear. Grey front wrapper preserved and with dedication to the author's daughter Maria Lloyd. Signature and bookplate of the Swedish naturalist and painter Gunnar Brusewitz. A well read copy.Bring 802. On the wedding practices, Christmas traditions, folklore, games, Midsummer celebrations, educational system and social order of Sweden. Llewellyn Lloyd (1792-1876) was born in London where his father was a banker. Inspired by Captain Brooke's travels in Scandinavia he came to Sweden in 1823, filled with a love of adventure and a passion for hunting. He wrote extensively about hunting and fishing and his books on these subjects were generally well received. "Peasant life in Sweden", which was translated into Swedish in 1871, was however criticized for giving an antiquated picture of Lloyd's new homeland. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
