The fruitful vineyards, promising so much good return for their careful prunings and able tillage, lie crushed under the footsteps of invading armies, and the vines are stained with human blood, and murdered corpses occupy the scene of the vintagers' happy labours."

        Oeuvres du Cardinal de Retz

      Paris - Librairie Hachette et Cie. 1870 - A complete set of the works of Jean-Francois Paul de Gondi, otherwise known as the Cardinal de Retz. New edition, extended and with notes, a glossary, a portrait and more by Alphonse Feillet. With half-titles and original paper-wraps bound in. Includingfacsimilie of du Retz' handwriting. Containing his famous Memoires. During the last ten years of his life, Retz wrote his Memoirs, which go up to the year 1655. They are addressed in the form of narrative to a lady who is not known, though guesses have been made at her identity, some even suggesting Madame de Svign herself. In the beginning there are some gaps. They are known for their narrative skill and the verbal portraits of their characters. The Memoirs of the cardinal de Retz were first published in a very imperfect condition in 1717. The first satisfactory edition appeared in the twenty-fourth volume of the collection of Joseph Franois Michaud and Jean Joseph Franois Poujoulat (Paris, 1836). In 1870 a complete edition of the works of Retz was begun by Alphonse Feillet in the collection of Grands Ecrivains. In French. Complete in eleven volumesCondition: Rebound in green cloth bindings. Extenally, very smart with justa few marks. Internally, firmly bound. Pages have some institutional ink stamps throughout (with instutional labels to front pastedowns) and some scattered spotting, though otherwise bright. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Etude sur la maladie des vers à soie : moyen pratique assuré de la combattre et d'en prévenir le retour. Tome 1, La pébrine et la flacherie. Tome 2, Notes et documents.

      Gauthier Villars, Paris 1870 - in-8, XII, frontispice, 322 pp., 36 planches (dont 9 en couleurs) et (6), 327 pp., 1 planche, demi-basane havane moderne, dos discrètement et uniformément insolé, couvertures du tome II conservées. Très bon état. Pasteur fut appelé dans le Sud de la France pour étudier un fléau qui dévastait les élevages de vers à soie. Ce fléau était représenté par deux maladies contagieuses, portant les noms de pébrine et de flacherie. "Louis Pasteur travailla de 1865 à 1870 sur ces maladies et résolut de façon magistrale le problème. il montra que la pébrine était due à un protozoaire. Par ailleurs, la flacherie était une maladie différente caractérisée par une énorme prolifération de bactéries dans l'intestin des vers. Pasteur proposa de pratiquer une sélection des individus sains des élevages par examen microscopique des oeufs, ce qui fit disparaître ces maladies." (P. Berche) "La mise en oeuvre de ces solutions, notamment le "grainage" . est toujours en vigueur dans les pays producteurs de soie, dont le Japon, où elle fait l'objet d'une loi. Aujourd'hui, dans notre pays, le sort des vers à soie ne nous émeut plus guère. Il ne faudrait pas pour autant minimiser l'importance que ces travaux ont revêtue dans l'évolution de la pensée de Pasteur. Grâce à eux, il a sauté le pas entre les fermentations et les maladies infectieuses." (M.Schwartz & F. Rodhain) Garrison & Morton, 2481 ; Heirs of Hippocrates, 1017 ; Bulloch, p.183 ; Lechevalier & Solotorovsky, pp. 39-40 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Prima edizione di uno dei testi fondanti della medicina moderna, "the vestibule of the modern medicine" (Duveen). Rara. Perfetti esemplari con qualche consueta inevitabile fioritura della carta. Pasteur venne incaricato dal governo francese nel 1865 di ricercare i fattori eziologici della pebrina, la malattia dei bachi da seta, che aveva disastrosamente invaso i dipartimenti francesi meridionali per poi estendere la sua perniciosa azione all'Italia, all'Austria, alla Spagna, alla Grecia e alla Turchia. Dopo cinque anni di capillari indagini, Pasteur individuò le cause della patologia dettando le norme per prevenirla e combatterla, segnando al contempo una cruciale svolta nel campo dell'eziologia delle malattie infettive dell'uomo e degli animali e in quello della terapia medica e chirurgica.

      Altona, August Prinz, o.J. [um 1870]. - 16°. HLeder mit RTitel. August Prinz war der produktivste Verleger erotischer Schriften seiner Zeit. "Erotik zog. Warum sollte er dem Verlangen seiner Leser nicht entgegenkommen? So entstanden in rascher Reihenfolge Erotica derbster Art, die er in denkbar schlechtester Ausstattung auf den Markt warf." (Englisch, Irrgarten, S. 56.) Trotz diverser Scheinfirmen wurde 1868 der gesamte Verlag auf die Verbotsliste gesetzt, 1877 erneut. Die hier vorliegenden seltenen Titel fallen in die Zwischenzeit und sind eher lüstern als derb. So tragen sie auch sämtlichst die volle Verlagsangabe. Vorhanden sind: Bokativus, O. Hinter der Gardine. Aus dem Leben einer Lorette. 80 S. Hayn-Got. III, 270 (ohne Autor und Verlag). --- Verbotene Früchte. Bekenntnisse aus dem Leben einer Tänzerin. 96 S. Hayn-Got. II, 473. --- Zilara, die schöne Zigeunerin, oder: Das Muttermal. 80 S. Hayn-Got. VIII, 653. --- Cupido, Ferdinand. Probenächte. Oder: Der Mann von sieben Weibern. 73 S. Hayn-Got.

III, 427. --- [Ohne Titelblatt]. 79 S. --- Cupido, Ferd. Der Mann von sechs Frauen. Fortsetzung der Probenächte. 76 S. Hayn-Got. I, 708. --- Beigebunden sind 5 chromolithographierte Tafeln. Sie zeigen galante Szenen und waren offenbar Umschlagblätter weiterer Titel des Verlages. Einband stark beschabt, Rückenkanten angerissen, größere Fehlstellen an den Kapitalen. Papierbedingt stärker gebräunt, gelegentlich fleckig und kleine Einrisse sowie Knicks. Eine Seite alt restauriert.

        Statuten des Corps Germania [bzw. Frankonia].

      Graz, um 1870. - Manuskript in schwarzer Feder mit Ergänzungen und Korrekturen in Bleistift. Aquarellierter kalligraphierter Titel (Wappen und Band), 26 SS. Marmorierter Halbleinenband (Rücken erneuert). 4to. Die 13 Paragraphen umfassenden Statuten des Corps Germania mit den Farben Weiß-blau-gold und dem Wahlspruch "Einig, treu, wahr" sind die Satzungen einer wahrscheinlich in Graz ansässisigen Mittelschülerverbindung, die ihre Mitglieder aus der Oberrealschule rekrutierte (siehe § 3 I). Die umfassenden Statuten dienten später einem neu gegründeten Corps Frankonia als Grundlage zur Erarbeitung der eigenen Satzungen: Zusätze und Streichungen wurden in Bleistift eingefügt. Aus zwei beiliegenden Briefen geht hervor, daß das Corps Frankonia zumindest seit 1878 in Graz aktiv war. Neben einem Philistrierungsansuchen von 1882 liegt ein Cartellvertrag mit dem 1881 gegründeten Corps Arminia in Cilli bei. Besonderes Interesse verdient auch das umfassende Mitgliederverzeichnis am Ende der Statuten. - Interessantes Quellenmaterial zum Grazer Farbstudententum, das durch die beiligenden Briefe guten Einblick in das Studentenleben gibt.

        WASHINGTON AS A FREEMASON

      1870 - (MASONRY). "WASHINGTON AS A FREEMASON." A color lithograph showing a full-length portrait of George Washington, dressed in a Masonic apron and holding a trowel in one hand and a mallet in the other, standing beneath a high arch which proclaims "Washington as a Freemason." The arch is supported by a series of receding columns; each column has a capital belonging to a different order. Supporting the central arch, and on either side of it, is a gothic construction of arches and quatrefoil windows; each compartment is filled with either an illustration or an object which is emblematic of Masonry (i.e., an open casket with a shovel and a mallet nearby), or personifications of virtues (Fortitude, Prudence, Temperance, and Justice). Two of the panels contain a eulogistic poem to Wahington, and several of the architectural elements are printed with brief facts about his life (i.e., his date of birth and death, President of the United States, his date of initiation into Masonry and degrees of progress therein, etc.). On either side of the arch, at the top of the gothic towers, are portraits of two other notable Masons, the Marquis de Lafayette and President Andrew Jackson, which are draped with American flags. Cincinnati, OH: J. H.Powers & Co., Fraternity Publishers, 1870. Printed by Strobridge & Company, also of Cincinnati. 22 1/2 by 17 1/2 inches, framed. There is a tiny hole in one margin; otherwise this is a clean and fresh print.

        Sperm Whaling with its Varieties.

      Boston: Benjamin Russell, 1870. - Single sheet, float mounted and framed, (21 ¼ x 36 ¼ inches). Fine lithographed print with printed color, finished by hand. First edition. Lithographed by Bufford after the drawing by Russell. "Bufford made what are probably among the very best of the whaling lithographs" (Peters, p. 124). Subtitled: "Waiting a Chance. Setting on the Whale. Ship Cutting In. Just Fastening. Fast Changing Ends. Dead Whale Waif'd. Fast Boat Rolling up Sail. Whale Sounding. Mate Running. Trying Out. Stove Boat. Towing Whale to Ship. Whale in a flurry (Dying)." This engaging, large-scale lithograph depicts the various stages and methods of whaling as it was practiced along the coast of the United States in the 19th century. Benjamin Russell was in a unique position to portray the intensity of whaling. A native of New Bedford, Massachusetts - the center of the American whaling industry - he had spent four years on a whaler in the 1840s and thereafter devoted himself to painting watercolor marine scenes. His personal experiences of whaling allowed him to imbue this image with a sense of realism that is lacking in contemporary scenes of the same subject, which tend towards romanticized embellishments. As such, this lithograph gives a more faithful and informative - yet equally dramatic - picture of the practice of whaling, then a crucial part of American industry. The lithographer, John Bufford, is equally notable. After working for Nathaniel Currier in New York, he returned to his home of Boston to establish his own company. Among his many apprentices was Winslow Homer, who went on to become one of the first American artists of international renown. Like Currier & Ives, J. H. Bufford & Co. produced a vast amount of exceedingly popular imagery regarding all aspects of American life. Yet Bufford is most known for scenes such as this one, and the whaling lithographs produced by his firm are by far the best of his time. This particularly vivid image is considered one of the two most desirable that Bufford published, and is of considerable rarity today. See Harry T. Peters, "America on Stone." For more information about this lithograph, or a warm welcome to see it and other books and prints in our library at 72nd Street, NYC, please contact Megan Scauri, M.A., M.L.S., in the Rare Book Department.

The 12 issues of this paper, printed on a Gordon Press in the baggage car, which led an 8 Pullman car train, were published over the course of 6 weeks while the Boston Board of Trade, headed by the Hon. Alexander H. Rice, journeyed 3000+ miles to San Francisco to meet with the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce. The paper, in what it reported, was much like any other: for example, besides reporting the normal business of the train & its passengers, in the first issue, we see that the Athletics of Philadelphia beat Harvard Base Ball Club 20-8 ...The office for this paper, the editor tells us, was located in the second car... a "very handsome smoking car, divided into 4 rooms." Of particular note to bibliophiles is the fact that the train was equipped with "two well- stocked libraries, replete with choice works of fiction, history, poetry, etc." Each issue recorded a different locale on the masthead, with the first issue proclaiming Niagara Falls, on to Omaha, Cheyenne, Ogden, Salt Lake City, Summit Sierra Nevadas Cal, San Francisco [where the train stopped in front of the Grand Hotel], Promontory Point Utah, Laramie, Grand Island Nebraska, Burlington Iowa and finally, Boston itself. A somewhat uncommon item in the trade, generally regarded as the first newspaper to be printed on a moving train. . Masthead vignette of train. Occasional cut.

        WORKS OF SHAKSPERE. Edited by Charles Knight

      New York Virtue and Yorston. n.d., circa 1870 - 2 volumes. The Imperial Edition, the best edition of the publisher and editor. Profusely illustrated throughout with very fine full-page steel engravings by select artist, vignette half-title and portrait frontispiece. Large Folio, (15" x 11"), in the publisher’s very deluxe and impressive binding of full dark brown morocco handsomely decorated with wide ornate panels in blind featuring round portrait corner piece portraits of Shakespearian characters in bright gilt, all surrounding a full gilt panel featuring a bust of Shakespeare, urn and shield and rich ornate lettering. The spines are decorated in similar style with tall gilt stippled raised bands, panels in blind, bright gilt lettering and gilt tools in the center of each compartment, board edges and turn-ins gilt decorated, fine marbled end-papers and a.e.g. An extremely fine and unusually attractive set. The books are near as pristine with fresh white paper, the bindings bright and exceptionally well preserved. AN ABSOLUTELY SUPERB SET OF THIS IMPORTANT EDITION IN ITS VERY BEST FORMAT. Truly an edition, printing and binding well suited for the greatest writer of the language. It is also vivid proof that an American publisher could produce a Shakespeare as handsome and fitting as any of their British counterparts. "The text given by Mr. Knight. is founded upon the most careful collations; and a reason is assigned in those editions for every deviation from the received text of the modern copies. To print the Text of the Words of Shakespeare, such as we may judge that it proceeded from his pen, so as to make his real words accessible to all, is the object." [Attributes: Soft Cover]
