        ANTEROS: A Novel in Three Volumes. (PUBLISHER'S PRESENTATION COPY)

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1871. [Lawrence, George Alfred]. ANTEROS. A Novel. In Three Volumes. London: Chapman & Hall, 1871. First Edition. A PRESENTATION COPY from the publisher with the Chapman & Hall small blind-stamp on the title page of Volume One. A FINE copy in beautifully designed original publisher's brown cloth, gilt, showing only the most minor of blemishes; we doubt many first editions of this title still exist much less an example in this condition. George Alfred Lawrence (1827-1876) was a sensation novelist of a different ilk than Wilkie Collins or M. E. Braddon. His protagonists were often, if not always, men who were equally skilled at fighting, riding, hunting, killing, truth-seeking, and wooing. Not one to shirk a challenge himself, Lawrence sailed to America to fight for the Confederate Army (he was captured and shipped back to England). Lawrence is little read today but he created the original inspiration for the "Beau Geste" character, that self-sacrificing, dashing, honorable crusader who often fought for lost causes usually on behalf of some wronged maiden. In short, Lawrence may be credited with creating today's iconic "action hero." ANTEROS is one of Lawrence's most mature tales, set entirely in England, a romantic mystery involving a deceitful woman in the vein of Lady Audley. Our action hero has to uproot the "secret" which, alas, thwarts romance but keeps honor alive now and forever. Wolff (3967) had a copy of this rare novel but it was ex-library. Sadleir didn't have a copy. . First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine.

        Bataille de Dorking, Invasion des Prussiens en Angleterre

      Henri Plon, Paris 1871 - Duodecimo, a neat copy in quarter red-brown morocco. Early French edition of Chesney's electrifying tale of the German invasion of England. Its depiction of the humiliation of the English in battle, but also the crushing despair of life under German rule, positions this work as one of the most important precursors to the dystopias of the twentieth century. Sir George Tomkyns Chesney (who founded the Royal Indian Civil Engineering College at Staines, later General Sir George Chesney and subsequently MP for Oxford) first published this short story in Blackwood's Magazine for May 1871. It quickly ran to many editions and commentaries on both sides of the Atlantic. Its basic premise is that following the defeat of the French in the Franco-Prussian war, the German armies take what was widely feared to be the inevitable step of invading, and quickly subduing, England. Published the same year as Chesney's original, and with a Preface which sketches out the early reception of the work, this early French edition is indicative of the enormous interest generated by the work, 'un brilliant jeu d'esprit littéraire et une ingénieuse fiction'. . Later General Sir GT and MP for Oxford. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Winthrop, American orator and statesman, a descendant of Massachusetts Governor John Winthrop (1588-1649). Bookplate on front pastedown of noted collector Carroll Atwood Wilson. ROBERT CHARLES WINTHROP (1809-1894) graduated from Harvard in 1828, studied law with Daniel Webster, and in 1831 was admitted to the bar. He was a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives in1834-1840, for the last three years as speaker, and in 1840 was elected to the national House of Representatives as a Whig, serving from December 1840 to 1850. He soon became prominent and was speaker of the Thirtieth Congress (1847-1849). On the resignation of Daniel Webster to become secretary of state, Winthrop was appointed to the Senate (July 1850) but was defeated in the Massachusetts legislature for the short term (Jan. 30, 1851) and for the long term (April 24, 1851) by a coalition of Democrats and Free Soilers and served only until February 1851. In the same year he received a plurality of the votes cast for governor, but as the constitution required a majority vote, the election was thrown into the legislature, where he was defeated by the same coalition. Thereafter, he was never a candidate for political office. Among his noteworthy orations of a patriotic character were those delivered at Boston in 1876, at Yorktown in 1881, and in Washington on the completion of the Washington Monument in 1885.

Light spotting, but very good. </p><p>To Owen&#39;s old friend John Phillips, reader in geology at Oxford University, who had sent Owen a copy of his Geology of Oxford and the Valley of the Thames (1871).</p><p>"I can now thank you not only for your Note but for your Book which is so full of good matter as an egg&#39;s full of meat. On this I have been feasting, till interruptions called me away. Much I find that recalls happy old times, with dear old Buckland, when we were groping our way. If I live to finish, & you to see, the Vol. on Australian fossils I promise you an early copy: I think it is likely to be the first opportunity I may have of returning you anything in kind . . ."</p><p>Owen refers here to geologist and paleontologist William Buckland (1784-1856), author of Reliquiae diluvianae (1823) and of the first full account of a fossil dinosaur (1824). Buckland&#39;s support had been crucial to the advancement of Owen&#39;s career in the 1830s and 1840s. The "Vol. on Australian fossils" refers to Owen&#39;s Researches on the Fossil Remains of the Extinct Mammals of Australia, which he was then in the midst of writing; the work was published in 1877-78. </p><p>John Phillips, the recipient of this letter, was the nephew and pupil of geologist William Smith (1769-1839), whose "Delineation of the Strata of England and Wales with part of Scotland"(1815) was the first large-scale geological map of any country.</p>

        Lazy Lyrics

      1871-1882. Pebbled Cloth. Very Good. Fabulous collection of original songs, musical parodies (of opera) and playlets illustrated throughout with vignettes of great whimsy, some in color. 8vo 24 by 19 cm. 143 leaves, or close to 200 pp. The 120 or so illustrations abound in effete courtiers, crones, damsels, funny hats, outlandish gowns, the characters of opera, all rendered with precision and fine detail. The artist was a true miniaturist inasmuch as the very smallness of the scale is bound to bring delight and appreciation -- one is unlikely to wish the drawings were any larger. The light verse he concocted is a perfect complement to the illustrations, and one can wonder whether these parodies were performed in the parlour! Among the works are "Lucrezia Borgia", inspired by Donizetti; "The Lay of the Claimant", a spoof on the Victorian cause celebre Roger Tickborne, who claimed to be an heir to an baronetcy, and was subsequently imprisoned for perjury; "The Shah of Persia", an Orientalist romp;"The Frolic of Love", which makes fun of various national stereotypes in the matter of romance; "The Rink and Rinkers", which must be one of the earliest send-ups of the new fad of roller skating (the patent for roller skates with four wheels dates to 1863 and this lyric is dated 1876); "The Zoo", with original anthropomorphic renderings; "Lord Mayor's Day", with caricatures of Disraeli and Gladstone; and several other winsome pieces. Throughout the author suggests melodies from opera and operetta to sing his verses to. Perhaps the most extraordinary aspect of the manuscript is the perfect union of verse and illustration, which each complementing and enriching the other -- this is something seldom encountered in amateur efforts.

      Berlin: Verlag von August Hirschwald, 1871. Fourth edition. Hardcover. Very Good. PRESENTLY DISCOUNTED. WAS $2,850. A Very Good copy of Rudolf Virchow&#39;s Lectures on pathology First Volume, Fourth Edition. Cellular pathology in full magnitude and physiology and pathological histology, Fourth, Newly Edited and greatly enlarged, SIGNED BY GEORG PUPPE on the second title page and there dated by him "1888", the year he graduated from Medical School, and stamped by him with his purple stamp indicating the book belongs to "Dr. Of Medicine, Georg Gottfried Puppe" (1867-1925). Considered the father of modern pathology and one of the founders of social medicine, Rudolf Virchow was a doctor, anthropologist, pathologist, prehistorian, biologist, writer, editor, and politician who considered physicians to be the natural attorneys of the poor and who is known for his advancement of public health. Puppe was the Extraordinary Professor of Forensic Medicine in Leipzig and he was a pioneer of Social and Forensic Medicine, a medical doctor, researcher, and author of several medical classics. He determined what came to be known as &#147;Puppe&#146;s Rule&#148; which provides that later-formed fractures cannot cross earlier-formed fractures, a rule which to this day is used in Forensic Pathology to determine the sequence of the impacts of a blunt object on the human skull. Although it does not carry his bookplate, this book belonged to Murray Gell-Mann, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics "for his contributions and discoveries concerning the classification of elementary particles and their interactions" and coined the name "Quark" for certain elementary particles, naming them after a line in James Joyce&#39;s "Finnegans Wake". Having been owned first by Puppe, and thereafter by Gell-Mann, this copy joins these major figures together with Virchow, the book&#39;s author. The book is in Very Good condition with scuffing to the boards, some rubbing through at the board edges, and wear to the board corners, spine cracked along the surface, but holding quite well, and evidence of the removal of a prior bookplate to the front pastedown. A wonderful copy of a notable book associating three great men of science and medicine and SIGNED BY GEORG PUPPE. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

        Autograph Letter Signed, to Mr. Mash (?)

      Sydney: 26 November, 1871. Single leaf, small octavo, conjugate leaf removed but the letter evidently complete, simple red device to head of recto, pin-holes, very good. A nice note from Anthony Trollope, politely refusing an invitation to whist during his visit to Sydney in 1871. It is rare to see a letter from Trollope&#39;s Australian stay on the market, although he was a prolific correspondent. Together with his wife Frances, Trollope sailed for the antipodes in 1871 to visit their son Frederick, who had settled on a sheep station near Grenfell. The novelist evidently enjoyed the time he spent in the colonies, and travelled extensively. He wrote a great deal during his year-long visit, most famously his Australia and New Zealand (1873), but also drew directly on his experiences for two novels, Harry Heathcote of Gangoil (1874) and John Caldigate (1879). The note reads: &#39;My wife has made an engagement for me on Monday evening (much less to my taste than your offer) which will preclude me from joining your whist table tomorrow. I did not answer your note sooner, knowing that it would make no difference in your engagements, and not being quite sure as to what I might be bound to do. Very faithfully yours Anthony Trollope.&#39; As this implies, whist was a passion of Trollope&#39;s, and he deeply felt the lack of available players during his Australian tour. A note printed in his Australia and New Zealand attests to what anguish the refusal must have cost him: &#39;I did endeavour to institute a whist table, but I found that my friends, who were wonderfully good in regard to the age and points of a sheep, and who could tell to the fraction of a penny what the wool of each was worth by the pound, could never be got to remember the highest card of the suit. I should not have minded that,&#39; continued Trollope, &#39;had they not so manifestly despised me for regarding such knowledge as important.&#39; Not in The Letters (ed. N. John Hall).

        An Appeal to Humanity

      Broadside. 4to (9½" X 12"). Near fine. Faintly age toned and with just the slightest bit of edgewear. Puerto Plata (also spelled Porto Plata) is the capital city of a province bearing the same name on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, and on the night of August 21, 1871, a fire engulfed that city&#39;s commercial district, crippling this remote district. On this occasion the province&#39;s governor, RAMON D. PACHECO, and the president of its Ayuntamiento (municipality council), FEDERICO M. LEYBA, signed (in type) this broadside, which consists of two side-by-side columns in English. In highly flowery language and twisted grammar, Pacheco and Leyba describe the fire and what it did to their city and its residents. In part: "Forty six buildings which encircled the only and most valuable, that held the greatest credit, that represented the complement of the towns welfare, the support of the majority of the population and, in short, were the prop of the Government, the guarantee of wealth, the fountain of labor, the stability of the present and rich signification of the future, have, in three hours, been converted into smoking ruins; horrible tomb of so many lives that moments before were agitating with overflow of stamina...." They plead for help from the international community: "Porto Plata knows that its appeal will be heeded and therefore does not falter but addresses readily all nations, brothers in sufferings; all peoples, sympathizers with distress; all the powerful, compassionate to misfortune, in search of the help it requires, to even prove after, that if it knows to beg, it also will know to fulfil and guard, in each bosom of its children, altars of lasting gratitude. For this end it directs its wailings to the representatives of the Republic...." Dated "Porto-Plata, August 23d 1871." At the bottom, between Pacheco and Leyba&#39;s bold typeface names, appears the large (2" diameter) official circular blind-embossed imprint of the Ayuntamiento of Puerto Plata. On the verso of this intriguing broadside appear four dockets -- seals and notarizing signatures from four consulates testifying to the truth of the devastation described in the broadside. "This is to certify," pens the first docket, "that the foregoing is a correct statement, and that Ramon D. Pacheco is Governor of this district and Federico M Leyba President of the Town Council. Porta Plata, August 25h, 1871. Theodore Farrington B.V. Consul." Alongside this is the circular blind-embossed seal of the British Vice Consul of Porto Plata. Below this appears the circular blind-embossed seal of the U.S. Commercial Agency of Puerto Plata, with the illegible signature of that official (plus title "U.S. V.C. Agt"); below that the circular blue inkstamped seal of the North German Consulate in Porto Plata and the illegible signature and title of that official; below that the circular blind-embossed seal of the Danish Consul at Puerto de Plata and the signature of G.L.H. Zeller with title; and below that the signature of "Charles Albert Neumann / Consul for Austria=Hungaria," who also pens "consular Seal" in lieu of a missing official Austro-Hungarian consular seal; and in a second column at right the illegible signature and rank of the French vice consul, who also pens "Consular Seal" in lieu of a missing official French consular seal. A provocative and rare broadside, uniquely docketed by six diplomatic officials on the verso. Ironically, that other great fire of 1871 would take place about one and a half months after this: the great Chicago fire of 1871, which caused far greater destruction and got far greater press attention. Accompanying this broadside is a 1930s vintage printed manila folder from pioneering Midwest autograph dealer Forest H. Sweet ("American Historical Material / Battle Creek, Michigan"), with his early catalogue description of this item affixed at center.

        Three rare pieces relating to Cook&#39;s memorial at Kurnell, Botany Bay

      Sydney: various dates, 1871, 1881, &, 1899. Three ephemeral pieces, a hand-lettered illuminated address and two publications; preserved in a handsome folding calf box. The Botany Bay memorial. An interesting group of three rare pieces of ephemera relating to the commemoration of Captain Cook at Kurnell and including important pieces relating to Thomas Holt&#39;s obelisk, built in 1871. The highlight of the group is undoubtedly the manuscript illuminated presentation address to HRH Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale, on the occasion of his visit in 1881. The prince was, at the time of his visit to Australia, second-in-line to the throne, but predeceased both Victoria and his father Edward VII. Scandal surrounds his murky death in 1891, and he remains a popular - if unlikely - candidate for Jack the Ripper. As this small group shows, the second half of the nineteenth-century saw Kurnell become the focus of the burgeoning fascination with Cook. 1. "Presented to His Royal Highness Prince Albert Victor Christian Edward by the Honorable Thomas Holt… in commemoration of a visit to the Monument of Captain Cook Botany. 9th August 1881". Quarto illuminated address folded to 4 pp. booklet, a few spots but fine, hand-drawn and coloured, lettering heightened in gilt. Presentation address with hand-drawn view of the memorial. Ornamental borders by Mrs Forde of Sydney, and the address illuminated by George Relph. 2. "Captain Cook&#39;s Landing in Botany Bay, with Fac-simile of Cook&#39;s Chart… Extracted from The Illustrated Sydney News and Sydney Morning Herald", Sydney: Gibbs, Shallard, and Co., n.d. but 1871. Square octavo, 12 pp., a few spots, modern bookplate and owner&#39;s stamp, owner&#39;s name torn away from front wrapper, not affecting text; printed chart and engraving, very good. Shows the obelisk erected by Thomas Holt at Cook&#39;s landing place, as well as a version of Cook&#39;s chart of Botany Bay. The text has long quotes from Cook&#39;s journals, as well as epigraphs from the poetry of Barron Field; this must be one of the earliest printings of any section of Cook&#39;s original journals. Rare: held in National Library and State Library of New South Wales (Beddie, 3045). 3. "Dedication of Captain Cook&#39;s Landing Place. Kurnell, Botany Bay", Sydney, Department of Lands, November 1899. Small octavo, folding plate of the landing place, frontispiece, folding chart of Botany Bay, illustrated, bookplate; in dark roan with gilt lettering, scuffed at spine. Attractive souvenir of the grand opening of the Kurnell monument to Captain Cook by the Lieutenant Governor, Sir Frederick Darley (Beddie, 3053).

        Middlemarch a study of provincial life

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons,, 1871&#150;72. 4 volumes, octavo (175 × 120 mm). Near contemporary tan calf Riviere binding, red and green spine labels, double rule gilt to boards, gilt decorations to compartments, top edge gilt, blue endpapers. Occasional spotting to pages, bindings a little rubbed at corners and ends of spine, mild wear to leather at spine compartments, Volume 1 with faint staining to rear board, mild expert repair to front hinge of volume 1, a very good set. First edition in book form of George Eliot&#39;s sixth and greatest novel, the title-pages showing the line "The Right of Translation is Reserved" at foot. In its slow gestation, the book grew too long for the traditional three-decker format. It was Lewes who suggested to Blackwood that, on the model of Victor Hugo&#39;s Les Misérables, it should be serialised in eight parts at two-monthly intervals, and published in book form in four volumes.

        Notes on The Natural History of the Strait of Magellan and the West Coast of Patagonia made during the voyage of HMS &#39;Nassau&#39; in the years 1866, 67, 68, & 69

      Edinburgh: Edmonston and Douglas, 1871. Octavo, with a coloured folding map and 21 lithograph plates; Parliamentary library stamps, some foxing, hinges tender, but a good copy in the original green cloth. The Straits of Magellan. Scarce account of an exploration of the Strait of Magellan. Cunningham was appointed naturalist aboard the Nassau, a steamer sent to work on the survey of the Strait and the adjacent channels. This publication gives a journal narrative of the voyage interspersed with natural history notes, and includes their interactions with the native inhabitants of Patagonia, the so-called &#39;Fuegians&#39;. The narrative provides interesting detail on the lifestyle, hunting and wigwam shelters of these fascinating people, who were thoroughly desensitised to rain, cold and exposure according to Cunningham&#39;s account. Five of the plates are fine tinted lithograph views of the region, after drawings by Cunningham&#39;s shipmates F. Le B. Bedwell and the Hon. F.C.P. Vereker, and were printed by Waterston in Edinburgh, while the other 16 lithographs are of natural history subjects after drawings by the author. Cunningham&#39;s own interest was chiefly the ornithology of the area - after the voyage he published various pieces on the subject in the Ibis - but he also covers the area&#39;s botany, mentioning his collections of plants in the Royal Herbarium, Kew and promising articles on the Reptiles, Amphibia, Fishes, Mollusca, and Crustacea in Linnean Transactions. His natural history connections were evidently impeccable: he thanks Hooker, Huxley, Newton, Flower, Sclater, Salvin, Gray, Günther and Baird.
