        TYPEE: A Peep at Polynesian Life During a Four Months' Residence in a Valley of the Marquesas

      New York Harper and Brothers 1871 - An early printing by Harper Brothers, the "Revised Edition, with a Sequel". with a chart of the Marquesas Islands as frontispiece. 8vo, publisher’s original cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and elaborately decorated in blind on the spine and covers. xiv, 307, 8 ads. An especially handsome and clean and bright copy. Melville's first book, and the most popular during his lifetime. It is a classic in the literature of travel and adventure and is partly based on Melville's experiences as a captive on the island Nuku Hiva in the South Pacific Marquesas Islands, in 1842. The title is derived from the name of a valley there called Tai Pi Vai. It was Melville's most popular work during his lifetime, but made him notorious as the "man who lived among the cannibals." For 19th century readers, his career seemed to decline afterward, but during the 20th century it was seen as the beginning of a career that peaked with Moby-Dick. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        AT THE BACK OF THE NORTH WIND. Author of "Dealings with the Fairies," "Ranald Bannerman," Etc., Etc

      New York: George Routledge & Sons, 1871. Small octavo, original purple decorated cloth stamped in black, gilt, and blind, all edges gilt, pinkish cream endpapers. pp viii, 378, [2]. 76 illustrations in text by Arthur Hughes. Professionally resewn and rebacked, original endpapers intact, all spine stamping completely intact; inner hinges skillfully repaired, scarcely noticable; light spine sunning; Xmas, 1871, ink gift inscription on front free endpaper; English trade binder's ticket (Burn & Co.) on rear pastedown; only minor rubbing to the gilt picture on the front cover; else a fine bright copy, with much less fading to the spine than is usual with this colour, the rebacking skillfully done and scarcely noticable, and the text quite clean and unworn. The US edition was made from a separate British printing, by Ogden & Co. In the first issue of the UK binding, with the "A.S." spine imprint, gilt framing on the front cover, and the publisher's device within rules in blind on rear cover. Sadleir 1474c errs in his identification of the US first edition [It's not often you get to say "Sadleir was wrong"]. Not in Wolff (who was a serious MacDonald collector). The author's most famous book, a cornerstone in any fairy tale collection, and a high spot of Victorian children's literature, with excellent illustrations by MacDonald's good friend the famous Pre-Raphaelite Arthur Hughes. Their collaborations are "the despair of the collector, for they are exceedingly scarce and collectors of George MacDonald are exceedingly keen. The North Wind is at once Hughes' most delightful undertaking and one of the most charming books of the period." - Percy Muir. The British edition is now rare in original cloth, and the US edition is even scarcer. An nice copy of a great book.. First US issue. Hardcover.

Il fut le secrétaire de la Société Centrale des Architectes. Propriétaire-fondateur et directeur de la "Revue Générale de l'Architecture et des Travaux Publics" (1840-1888) et de "La Semaine des Constructeurs" (1877-1895), publications dont le rayonnement fut notable, il est également l'auteur de plusieurs ouvrages de référence. Dont cet ouvrage "Specimens de Tombeaux.", qui reste une impressionnante documentation sur les monuments funéraires de l'époque. Français [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      1871 - MACDONALD, George. THE PRINCESS AND THE GOBLIN. New York: George Routledge and Sons, 1871. First American edition of MacDonald's second full-length fairy tale, following At the Back of the North Wind, which had appeared in the preceding year. 30 wood-engraved illustrations by Arthur Hughes. Octavo. iv,315 pp. Publisher's green cloth binding with pictorial decorations on spine and front cover, based on text illustrations by Hughes, in gilt and black. Off-white coated endpapers. All edges gilt. Binder's ticket ('Bound by Burns & Co.') on rear pastedown. The decoration of the American binding is almost identical with the Strahan & Co. first-edition binding, including the crescent moon and flaming torch in gilt outside of the front cover circle, and with the publisher's name gilt-stamped at the base of the spine - only in this case it is Routledge. The difference occurs on the spine where the entire title is gilt-stamped, as opposed to the Strahan copies on which the the word 'goblin' is printed in black. The binding is rubbed along edges, lightly abraded on surfaces, and is slightly askew. The bookblock is sound but has been glued into the case slightly lower than it should be, by about 5 mm. Pencil gift inscription at head of title-page with the date (1876) written in ink below it. Text leaves are clean but for some light foxing to a few pages near the beginning. A rare edition, the existence of which was uncertain, and the 1872 edition being cited as the first. In about very good condition. (Shaberman 48).

A very clean and bright copy.ìKneeland [1821-1888], a professor of zoology and physiology and secretary of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from its founding in 1865 until 1878, produced one of the better guide books to the Yosemite region. It is an especially attractive book due to the inclusion of an excellent series of mounted photographic images. The book is based on the authorís first visit to Yosemite Valley in July 1870. In addition to serving as a guide book, it forms a narrative of his trip from Boston to Yosemite and return. Kneeland made every effort to obtain current and accurate information and each of the later editions of the guide incorporates new material. The second edition adds ëThe Yosemite in 1872í and ëThe Recent Earthquake in Yosemite.í Though not identified by name, the account of the 1872 earthquake and much of ëThe Yosemite in 1872í is based on information indirectly supplied by John Muir. It is the first appearance of Muirís writings in a bookî (Currey & Kruska).Cowan, p. 333 (third edition). Currey & Kruska 225. Farquhar 10b. Kimes & Kimes 3, 5, 7, and 8. Rocq 5217.HBS 66696.$2,000

        Anglo-American Atlantic yacht race of 1870. Start of the Yachts Dauntless and Cambria from Queenstown for New York on the 4th. July

      Published by Wm. Foster, London 1871 - A dramatic scene illustrating the start of the Trans-Atlantic race of 1870, by the celebrated maritime painter Thomas Dutton. Thomas Dutton was one of the greatest nineteenth century maritime painters. His emotive works display a genuine love of the sea and his careful depiction of detail provides a wonderful record of the important vessels of the age. The 108-foot Cambria , owned by James Ashbury of the Royal Harwich Yacht Club , raced the Dauntless , owned by James Gordon Bennett of the New York Yacht Club, from Queenstown, Ireland, to New York on 4 July 1870. The Cambria arrived first, making the crossing in 23 days, 5 hours 17 minutes and 15 seconds, just under two hours ahead of the Dauntless . After recuperating for 11 days the Cambria took part in the first true Americas Cup race. She competed against a field of 23 American yachts, and lost to the Magic by 40 minutes, finishing in 10th place overall. Dutton expertly captures the exciting moment of the start of the Trans-Atlantic race, and shows the great beauty and style of this remarkable ship. Tinted lithograph, finished by hand, drawn on stone by Dutton after "a painting by R.L. Stopford", sheet size: 20 x 27 3/8 inches. Fine condition.
