        Kitab Al-Sulwat Al-’Amma + Kitab Mazamir Dawud.

      Society of Promoting Christian Knowledge, Oxford 1871 - lix, 628 pp., Arabic text, endpaper & margins foxed, text translated into Arabic, original full calf, new spine. This work was printed in Arabic for the first time at the Arabic Press in Malta by the British Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. It was translated from several languages into Arabic by the leading Lebanese scholar who translated also the Bible into Arabic. From 1825 to 1848, Faris divided his time between living in Cairo and on the island of Malta. He was the editor-in-chief of an Egyptian newspaper, Al Waqa'eh Al Masriah. In Malta, he was the director of the printing press of American missionaries. He also studied Fiqh in Al-Azhar University in Cairo. Faris is believed to have converted to Protestantism during this period in Egypt, an extended time of relative solitude and study. In 1848 he was invited to Cambridge, England by the Orientalist Samuel Lee (1783–1852) to participate in the Arabic translation of the Bible. This translation of the Bible was published in 1857, after the death of Samuel Lee and it is still considered one of the best Arabic translations of the Bible. Size: 8vo. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lettre autographe signée (1909) à Etienne Grosclaude

      - Proust (Marcel) (1871-1922) Ecrivain français Lettre autographe signée « Marcel Proust », (Paris), (juin 1909), à Étienne Grosclaude, 6 pages in-8, en-tête manuscrite « 102 bd Haussmann ». Longue lettre de Marcel Proust félicitant Étienne Grosclaude pour son article « Van le Terrible » paru dans Le Figaro du 25 juin 1909. « Ces traits d’ombre constituent ce que j’appellerai le clair obscur dans le calembour et donnent à un tel article les ombres profondes, les abîmes redoutables à notre incertaine érudition, qui lui donnent la poésie de certains paysages de Gustave Moreau où dort toujours dans l’ombre un dieu caché » « Cher Monsieur, Par ces temps où toute amitié, même celle du vieux serviteur pour l’enfant de ses maîtres, risque de tourner à la plus criminelle exaltation et de rappeler aux esprits cultivés Oreste et pis ! (lads), je ne voulais pas, aujourd’hui sous prétexte de littérature comme hier sous celui des finances, commencer avec vous une correspondance suivie. Mais j’ai tenu à vous dire mon admiration pour cet article où avec un art d’une distinction hautaine dont les exemples se trouvent hélas aujourd’hui beaucoup moins chez les littérateurs français que dans l’horticulture japonaise. Vous sacrifiez deux mille calembours que vous apercevez et que vous dédaignez, jusqu’à ce que vous ayez flairé celui qu’une loi mystérieuse mais indiscutable entoure d’une formidable drôlerie et d’une poétique beauté. En cela, il restera le titre de vos calembours. Mais cette aristocratique particularité dans le choix de certains calembours ne vous suffit pas. Après cela vous effacez ce qui lui donnerait l’évidence d’un calembour. Titan lad au lieu d’Encelade, de sorte que ces traits d’ombre constituent ce que j’appellerai le clair obscur dans le calembour et donnent à un tel article les ombres profondes, les abîmes redoutables à notre incertaine érudition, qui lui donnent la poésie de certains paysages de Gustave Moreau où dort toujours dans l’ombre un dieu caché. « Dans l’ombre habite un dieu caché » Nous avons peur de marcher sur un calembour que vous n’avez pas reconnu et nous sentons que nous marchons dans une « forêt de symboles qui m’observent avec des regards familiers ». On finit par craindre chaque mot. « Crains dans le mur aveugle un regard qui t’épie, en la matière même un verbe est attaché » (vers de Gérard de Nerval, vers dorés) Voici Boileau : « à l’accent familier j’ai reconnu le spectre » mais pour remonter aussitôt aux troubles qui ensanglantèrent la minorité de Louis XVI. Toutefois il faut reconnaître que la mythologie nous inspire spécialement et que la fadeur de « l’aile des vans » a quelque chose d’irrésistible. Tant il est vrai que tout nous vient de la Grèce pour donner à ce pays un nom qui ne nous fera pas suspecter de basse flagornerie démagogique, ce qu’on n’hésiterait pas à faire si nous lui donnions à la place cet autre nom cher à Leconte de Lisle qui lui reconnait formellement le titre de Lad. je vous quitte car si vrai qu’il puisse être que les plus mauvais calembours sont encore un hommage que la médiocrité rend à l’esprit, je ne veux pas vous raser ( ) Votre reconnaissant et dévoué Marcel Proust. Venu à Paris en sabotant est admirable ». Dans son article paru en première page du Figaro, Étienne Grosclaude relate avec un humour incisif les mésaventures survenues aux chevaux de courses qui devaient rallier l’hippodrome d’Auteuil pour le championnat annuel de Steeple-chase. Ces derniers, convoyés vers l’hippodrome par des « vans » furent arrêtés par des syndicalistes en présence du député Maurice Berceaux et d’Émile Pataud (C.G.T.) et Abel Craissac (Inspecteur du travail). Grosclaude, tout en finesse et calembour ridiculise la manifestation des contestataires en concluant notamment : « Peut-être que dans bien des siècles, alors que l’oeuvre politique de M. Berteaux aura disparu tout entière, une légende mythologique confondra-t-elle vaguement le héros de Maisons-Lafitte avec un autre Titan

        The Descent of Man, and selection in relation to sex

      New York: D. Appleton & Company,, 1871. 2 vols, octavo. Original red diagonal grain cloth, titles to spines gilt, rules and cornerpieces in black to covers, yellow coated endpapers. Minor wear to spine ends and tips, a couple of light marks to covers, short split to head of front hinge of vol. I. An excellent set. First US edition, first issue (with the errata on the verso of the title leaf of vol. II). First published in the UK the preceding year, it was in this work that the word "evolution" appears for the first time, preceding its appearance in the sixth edition of The Origin of Species the following year. Darwin had hoped that one of his supporters might tackle the thorny question of human evolution, but was forced to face the logic of his own theory himself. Darwin deviated from his ostensible subject of mankind to describe sexual selection in the animal kingdom, enabling him to answer those who saw peacock tails as an expression of divine aesthetics. Darwin also set out a definite family tree for humans, tracing their affinity with the Old World monkeys, and laid out his views on the evolutionary origins of morality and religion. "The Descent, understood by Darwin as a sequel to the Origin, was written with a maturity and depth of learning that marked Darwin's status as an élite gentleman of science" (ODNB).

A little rubbed, lower fore-corner showing mild signs of damp, hinges starting, half-title browned, else very good. Mounted photographic portrait frontispiece. First edition. The author held a position equivalent to chancellor of the exchequer at the court of the young Nawab of Tonk, a small Muslim kingdom in Rajasthan, hedged on all sides by Hindu-ruled states. After the death of the Thakoor of Lawa, the largest tributary of Tonk, and a number of his retainers at the home of the prime minister of Tonk, the local political agent Lieutenant-Colonel Eden supported Lawa's claims in the incident and deposed the Nawab. Hassan was a key member in a deputation that set out for London to appeal against the local agent's findings. He gives a highly-detailed account of the voyage from Bombay to Jedda via Aden and Hodyda, and of the journey on camel-back to Mecca, where they complete the hajj, and on to Medina to see the Prophet's tomb. The party then returned to Jedda, from where Hassan set out for London via Suez and Marseilles. Hassan's appeal was unsuccessful, and the Nawab's son continued in his stead. Not in Macro.

        The Desert of the Exodus: Journeys on Foot in the Wilderness of the Forty Years' Wanderings, undertaken in Connexion with the Ordnance Survey of Sinai and the Palestine Exploration Fund.

      Cambridge: Deighton, Bell and Co., 1871 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original green pebble-grain cloth, title gilt to spines, panels in blind to boards, cream endpapers. From the library of British Arabist and colonial agent Col. S. B.

Coloured lithographic frontispiece to vol. 1, tinted lithographic frontispiece to vol. 2, 12 other tinted lithographic plates, 2 plain line plates, 5 folding maps, 3 of them coloured. First edition of "this important work" (Blackmer). In 1869 Palmer "was chosen to join the survey of Sinai, for the Palestine Exploration Fund. His principal duty was to collect from the Bedouin the correct names of places on the Sinai peninsula. He thus came for the first time into contact with Arabs, learned to speak their dialects, and obtained an insight into their modes of thought and life. In the summer of 1869 he returned to England, but left again on 16 December for another expedition. This time he and Charles Frederick Tyrwhitt-Drake walked alone the 600 miles from Sinai to Jerusalem, identifying sites and searching vainly for inscriptions. They explored for the first time the Desert of the Wanderings (Tih) and many unknown parts of Edom and Moab, and accomplished much useful geographical work. En route Palmer made many friends among the Arab sheikhs, among whom he went by the name of 'Abdallah Efendi. The travellers went on to Lebanon and to Damascus, where they met Captain Richard Burton, who was then consul there, and with whom Palmer struck up a friendship. They returned home in the autumn of 1870 by way of Constantinople and Vienna. A popular account of these two expeditions was written by Palmer in The Desert of the Exodus" (ODNB).

      Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott, 1871. First Edition. Half Leather. Very Good+ binding. W. B.

        Twenty Broadsheet Ballads

      These are original broadsheet ballads, crudely printed on cheap paper, measuring about 4 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches. Some of them have the slug of P. Brereton, Printer, on Exchange St. in Dublin. Listings on OCLC suggest he worked in the 1860s - 1880s. Interestingly, one of the ballads is \"Lines Written on the Most Dreadful Fire that Broke Out in Chicago in America. Composed by Jeramiah Cronan.\" So that piece, at least, was published after 1871. The ballads are tipped onto heavy folio sheets and attractively bound in quarter calf over boards. Many have wood engraved headpieces.

      Liverpool/Queenstown, UK, January 6, 1871. 10.5" x 17.25". "Two sided Broadside with soft folds, very slight separation and rubbing along center fold. Pale water stain along right corner outside of margin, else near fine. 10.5"" x 17.25"" Presented in a lightly nicked wood frame, double matted and framed to a size of 18"" x 24.5"", with glass backing to see both sides of the advertisement. The verso contains a partial map of North America.Broadside advertisement includes the dates of the voyages departure and pricing with ""Children under 8 years, Half-fare; Infants under 12 Months, £1 1s"" Along with relevant points that the passengers will each be granted a separate berth to sleep in providing they are over the age of 12, Married couples are berthed together""...""but (they) will have to provide themselves with a plate, Mug, Knife, Spoon and Water-can, as also Bedding ..."" Along with highly descriptive details of the voyage 'food fare' including:""Breakfast at Eight O'Clock - Coffee, Sugar, and Fresh Bread or Biscuit and Butter, or Oatmeal Porridge and MolassesDinner at One O'Clock - Beef or Pork and Soup, With Bread and Potato, or Fish and Potatoes, according to the day of the week, and on Sunday pudding will be addedSupper at Six O'Clock - Tea, Sugar and Biscuit""Perhaps of most interest however, is the long exhausting list of all individuals who are not in accordance with what was considered appropriate or allowable for the voyage: ""All passengers are liable to be rejected by the Captain of the ship, who, upon examination, are found to be lunatic, idiot, deaf, dumb, blind, maimed or infirm, or having symptoms of infectious disease, or above the age of 60 years, or widow with a child or children, or any woman without a husband, and with a child or children, ..."" which by all accounts of today's standards would likely include a large part of the population."

        COLOR PHOTOGRAPHY: THE THEORY, THE CONTROVERSY, THE PROOF!; THE FOUR WORKS THAT ESTABLISH COLOR PHOTOGRAPHY

      Blanquart-Évrard, [Louis Désiré]. LES COULEURS EN PHOTOGRAPHIE: CAUSERIE. Offprint from: Memoires de la Société des Sciences, de L'Agriculture et des Arts de Lille. 3rd series, volume 9. [Lille: L. Danel, 1871]. First edition. 8vo., 12 pp., with 4 photographic plates. Bound in contemporary yellow paper wrappers with the author and title in manuscript on the front cover. Wrappers are dusty with a short closed tear and lacking the lower front tip. The text is unopened, with the plates in very good condition. This pamphlet is an offprint from the above mentioned journal, the final contribution from Blanquart-Évrard, the president of the society. The text is a brief discussion of the theory and development of color photography, achieved by using three layers of emulsion, each absorbing one of the three primary colors, with each containing a dye that passed its color complement. This was the basis of every modern color process, and is commonly called the "subtractive" process. Both Louis Ducos du Hauron and Charles Cros announced their similar process on May 7, 1869 at a meeting of the Société Française de Photographie, neither aware of the other's experiments. Included, following the text are three photographic plates from color separation negatives of flower leaves provided by Louis Ducos du Hauron: red, blue and yellow, and printed on thin sheets of bichromated gelatin, incorporating carbon pigments. The fourth, and final plate is printed combining the three individual separations to make a full color photograph. In Eder, p.646, he states," Blanquart-Évrard, of Lille, wanted to exploit Du Hauron's process and establish, in 1870, a three-color printing establishment. Du Hauron had already furnished a set of three-color negatives for this purpose, but alas, the Franco-German war forced the postponement of the project until 1871. Unfortunately, Blanquart-Évrard died in April, 1872, but he had reported the process to the Society of Sciences at Lille." Although Cros and Ducos du Hauron exhibited examples of their three-color photographs as early as 1869, in neither of their publications prior to Blanquart-Evrard's, is there an example. This is the first publication to include an original color photograph from life, with WorldCat locating copies only at the George Eastman House, Getty Research Institute, Bibliotheque National de France, and BM Lyon, none of which are identified as an offprint. Roosen and Salu 928. [with] Cros, Charles. SOLUTION GÉNÉRALE DU PROBLÈM DE LA PHOTOGRAPHIE DES COULEURS. Paris: Gauthiers-Villars et au Bureau du Journal Les Mondes, 1869. First edition. 8vo., 12 pp., printed wrappers. There is a short separation of the wrappers at the spine. A near fine copy. Housed in a pamphlet folder of paper over boards with printed labels. Charles Cros (1842 - 1888) and Louis Ducos du Hauron, simultaneously but independently discovered and published the basic principles of photographic color by the subtractive method. In 1869, Cros published an article in Les Mondes in which he describes a letter he had deposited in 1867 with the Académie des Sciences that outlined his color process. The contents of his letter was made public on May 7, 1869 at a meeting of the Société Française de Photographie when a similar process by Louis Ducos du Hauron was also announced. Cros continued to explore photography in color and in 1877, he was supported in his experiments by the Duke of Chaulnes. Very few examples of his color photographs survive. This pamphlet is a cornerstone work on the development of color photography. WorldCat locates 15 copies in U.S. libraries, making this the more common of these four works. Roosens & Salu No. 2647. [with] Ducos du Hauron, Louis. LES COULEURS EN PHOTOGRAPHIE ET EN PARTICULAR L'HÉLIOCHROMIE AU CHARBON.

First edition. 8vo., 82, (1) pp. Printed wrappers. Moderate chipping to the paper spine. Near fine. Housed in a cloth pamphlet case with a calf label in gilt, inset into the front cover. Louis Ducos du Hauron and Charles Cros, simultaneously, but independently, discovered the basic principles of photographic color by the subtractive method. Ducos du Hauron published his process in 1869, and further elaborated upon it as applied to tricolor carbon printing in this publication of 1870; additionally, he refutes Cros' claim to priority. Rare, with WorldCat locating only three copies: Getty Research Institute, Smithsonian Institution, and John Hopkins University. Roosens and Salu No. 3347. [with] Ducos du Hauron, Louis. UNE QUESTION DE PRIORITÉ AU SUJET DE LA POLYCHROMIE PHOTOGRAPHIQUE DE M. LÉON VIDAL. LETTRE A LA SOCIÉTÉ FRANÇAISE DE PHOTOGRAPHIE. Agen: Imprimerie de P. Nobel - F. Lamy, successeur, 1876. First edition. 8vo., 12 pp. Printed paper wrappers, which are partially separated at the spine; with a small stain on the rear wrapper. Very good. Housed in a cloth pamphlet folder with paper labels. This is the controversial letter sent by Louis Ducos du Hauron to the Société Française de Photographie establishing his claim to historical priorities in early color systems. In Potonnieé's paper on Ducos du Hauron, which includes an extensive bibliography of printed works, this pamphlet was not included. WorldCat locates only three copies: National Gallery of Canada, Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Yale University, Roosens and Salu No. 3352. Four items. $35,000.00.
