        The Book of Common Prayer, and Administration of the Sacraments, and other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church, according to the use of the Church of England; Together with the Psalter or Psalms of David, Pointed as they are to be sung or said in Churches

      8vo., finely bound after a design by William Burges in full tan morocco, ruled in black, with five brass mounted semi-precious stones on each board, with two elaborate brass clasps with enamel coats of arms of Lord and Lady Ripon and each set with a semi-precious stone, all by Jes Barkentin, watered silk endpapers, all edges gilt. Just a little rubbing to binding otherwise a very good copy. A handsome piece of high Victorian design by William Burges, one of the pre-eminent figures of Victorian mediaeval revival, for Lord and Lady Ripon. Studley Royal and St Mary's Church were built for the Ripons between 1871 and 1878. Designed by William Burges it has been described variously as "a dream of Early English glory" and "one of the most perfect churches in the kingdom". Pevsner called it Burges's "ecclesiastical masterpiece." As with his project at Skelton-on-Ure for Lady Mary Vyner, Burges oversaw the whole design from the building itself to the fittings and fixtures. J. Mordaunt Crook comments "Skelton is Picturesque; Studley Royal approaches the Sublime." A series of designs for this binding can be found in the William Burges album "Orfèvrerie Domenstique" in the RIBA library. The binding design on this Prayer Book is directly comparable to another binding he designed for a Prayer Book for Sir Alexander James Beresford Beresford Hope. This was sold at Bonhams in 2009 and now resides in the National Museum Cardiff. It too has metalwork by Jes Barkentin with whom Burges worked closely throughout his career. A bracelet in the Higgins Bedford collection, also by Barkentin, has matching settings with those on this Prayer Book. The story behind the commissioning of the chapels at Studley Royal and Skelton comes from a tragic event. A close friend of the Ripons, Frederick Grantham Vyner, had been kidnapped by Greek bandits during an expedition to Marathon. A ransom of a million drachmas was demanded in return for his release and that of his seven companions. After a fortnight's negotiations, armed troops were sent in to rescue the hostages. During a running gun battle Vyner and three of his friends were shot dead. Vyner's mother, Lady Mary Vyner, and her sister Lady Ripon, decided to use the unspent ransom money for the contruction of two churches on their neighbouring estates, Christ the Consoler at Skelton-on-Ure and St Marys at Studley Royal.

        Western India before and during the Mutinies: Pictures drawn from Life.

      London: Henry S. King & Co., 1871 - Octavo. Original green fine pebble-grain cloth, gilt lettered spine and front cover within panelling in black, drab reddish-brown coated endpapers. Spine slightly rolled, extremities a little rubbed, blemish to front endpaper. A very good bright copy, with the single terminal advertisement leaf followed by the publisher's 10 pp. catalogue (dated November 1871). First edition, decidedly uncommon both in commerce and institutionally: Copac locates only two copies (BL, Oxford) in British and Irish institutional libraries, OCLC adds a clutch worldwide but seems to confuse first and second editions. An elusive and interesting work - Jacob (1805-1881) was an officer in the East India Company and he comments in chapter one that "I have met with no work giving full insight into the duties and responsibilities of Indian Political officers, a body of men who uphold British supremacy or British interests over some fifty millions of human beings, and whether Residents at native Courts, or under titles of Commissioner, Agent, or Superintendent, with their respective Deputies and Assistants, control, with more or less of diplomacy or of direct power, both kings and people". Jacob attempted to make amends for this in the present autobiographical work which represents "thinking outside the mainstream of political thought of mid-nineteenth century British India. His remarks object to the high level of British insensitivity to native needs and interests" (Riddick).

        Revue photographique des hôpitaux de Paris. Bulletin médical publié par... Troisième [et] quatrième année[s]

      2 années en 21 livraisons Paris, Adrien Delahaye et A. de Montméja, janvier 1871 - novembre 1872, in-8, 2 années en 21 livraisons (sans la dernière livraison de l'année 1872) : troisième année en 10 fascicules de 319-[1] pp, quatrième année en 11 (sur 12) fascicules de 384 pp (sur 420), 37 (sur 38) + 31 (sur 36) tirages photographiques contrecollés, en feuilles, sous couvertures de papier vert pâle de l'éditeur, boîte demi-toile brique moderne, pièce de titre noire en long. AVEC : 2 planches photographiques sous cadres, Troisième et quatrième années de cette revue médicale précieuse et rare, illustrée de photographies originales : plus rare encore, les livraisons sont ici TELLES QUE PARUES, non coupées et conservées sous les couvertures imprimées de l'éditeur. Notre ensemble est incomplet de la livraison de décembre 1872 (n° 12 de la quatrième année) et de la planche XXXI de la troisième année. Les planches XXIV et XXXI de la quatrième année manquent également : nous les présentons ici, séparément des livraisons, mises sous cadre et sous verre. La publication de la Revue photographique des hôpitaux de Paris commence en 1869. Elle change de titre à partir de 1873 pour prendre celui de Revue micro-photographique... et continuera ses livraisons jusqu'en 1876. Cette publication est le prolongement de la Clinique photographique créée en 1868 par Montméja et l'éminent dermatologue Alfred Hardy ; Arthur de Montméja, chef du service photographique de l'hôpital Saint-Louis, réussit pour sa Revue à convaincre le directeur de l'Assistance publique d'installer à Saint-Louis le premier atelier photographique des hôpitaux de Paris. Son dessein est de confier à des spécialistes des articles décrivant des cas pathologiques remarquables qui seraient illustrés chacun d'une photographie : celles-ci montrent ainsi les figures du corps, de ses maux et de sa pathologie dans ce qu'elle a de plus intéressant et de plus rare. La revue, qui parait en livraisons, est d'abord publiée en collaboration avec Jules Rengade (1841-1915), autrement connu sous son nom de romancier Aristide Roger, rejoint dès 1870 par Désirée-Magloire Bourneville, qui sera plus tard à la rédaction d'une autre fameuse revue illustrée de photographies, l'Iconographie photographique de la Salpêtrière. Pujade Sicard & Wallach, pp. 16 et 106 ; Canguilhem, Le merveilleux scientifique, p. 46.

        Photograph - RARE Photo of the Ferntree Gully Hotel

      Melbourne, 1871. Rare photograph of the original Ferntree Gully Hotel, constructed circa 1871, then operating under Thomas Grimwood is seen with Patrons Arriving on Horse-Drawn Carriages. Large Format Sepia Photograph Measuring approximately 23,5 cm x 14 cm. Creasing, one tear to lower left corner, otherwise Very Good Condition. Period views of the original Ferntree Gully Hotel are extremely rare, whether a photograph or even a drawing. The Fern Tree Gully Hotel was owned by English carpenter Thomas Samuel Grimwood (1824-1895) who was born in Tunstall, Suffolk, England, and who emigrated to Australia in 1854, becoming a pioneer settler of Ferntree Gully. Grimwood also made noteworthy contributions to Melbourne as an early builder and hotelier, having carried out several construction works for the government, building the first battery and mounting the first gun at Emerald Hill, for example. He also leased numerous hotels including the Victoria, the Collingwood, and others. At the Thistle Hotel on Elizabeth Street he catered a meal for 25,000 on behalf of the Duke of Edinburgh during his tour of Australia in 1867. About 1875, Grimwood took interest in Fern Tree Gully, that year leasing the Fern Tree Gully Hotel which had been erected by Edmund Ashley around 1871-72. Nestled in the Dandenong Ranges, then some 40 kilometres east of Melbourne, Grimwood had a grand vision for the quaint hotel and lush property, that it would be the centre of recreation and community activities, the hub of Fern Tree Gully social life, and indeed it became so, from 1875 over 30 years, as he himself also began creating such activities. He set about establishing, for example, a cricket team in October 1885, calling it the Glenfern Cricket Club, and subsequently became a most influential contributor to cricket in the area. The hotel was photographed by a foreign visitor and thus appeared in the London Illustrated News in the 1870s. Grimwood's second wife continued to operate the hotel for a short time after his death, until 1896, when a Mr. Cocks took over, as was described in the private diary of Melbourne artist and photographer Charles Hammond who stayed at the hotel for an entire year in 1896. Hammond also made paintings of the hotel and its beautiful surroundings in 1896. [This building was later found to be erected encroaching onto the main road, and eventually was replaced by what is now the Middle Fern Tree Gully Hotel.] The hotel's origins are connected to the locally famed 'Dickson's Beer Shanty' which was a simple slab shack with a shingle roof built on the banks of a creek in 1857. Edmund Ashley purchased the building and two acres of land from George Dickson at the cost of £22 in 1870. On this property, shortly thereafter he erected the Fern Tree Gully Hotel, which he leased to Grimwood in 1875. This rare photograph shows the predecessor to the hotel at the same location today, 1130 Burwood Hwy in Ferntree Gully, being the 'Middle Ferntree Gully Hotel', with a function room named 'The Shanty' after its origins. Possibly capturing a special event organized or hosted by Grimwood, one man in the leading carriage is holding a large camera, while men in formal attire are lined up on the front veranda. Ferntree Gully is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, situated at the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, and established in 1880. Originally the summer hunting grounds of the Wurundjeri people, the first European to visit the area was botanist Daniel Bunce in 1839. A number of timber-splitters established camps in the forest in the 1850s, and a paling shack was built by a Mr. Dickson in 1867. Smaller landowners also began to select land here in the 1860s. The picturesque scenery and lush flora started attracting visitors from the 1870s. Access to Fern Tree Gully was not easy however. By coach or horseback along a rough track from Oakleigh one could reach the tiny settlement of Upper Fern Tree Gully. From there they walked into the forest along tracks built by the timber splitters. A small hotel built nearby in 1875 made it a favourite spot for visitors from Melbourne. A road was finally opened in 1878. The first suggestion to preserve "The Gully" as a park came from Thomas Samuel Grimwood - licensee of the Ferntree Gully Hotel, and a Mr. W. Westfield. The two men approached the Minister of Agriculture in 1881 and the following year, 168 hectares of Fern Tree Gully and nearby One Tree Hill were reserved for public recreation. Thereafter, the reserve was known as the Ferntree Gully National Park, the second in Victoria after Tower Hill near Warrnambool. Grimwood was a trustee of the reserve, as well as the local cemetery. Throughout the 1880s the township began to grow. Shops were established, as well as hotels, churches, and a primary school. With the arrival of the railway line, extended from Ringwood in December 1889, the area became more accessible to visitors. [The hotel photographed here is not to be confused with the 'Royal Fern tree Gully Hotel' which opened its doors in August 1889, situated at the top of Wheeler's Hill, in Upper Fern Gully, and which also still exists today. Nor is it the Ferntree Gully Club Hotel, built in 1866.] . Very Good.

        2 eigenh. Briefe m. U. [Wohl Wien], 13. IV. und 20. VI. 1871.

      1871. Zusammen 2 SS. 8vo. Beide Briefe an einen Herrn Wimmer: "Nachdem ich gestern mit dem Herrn Pfarrer gesprochen habe, wäre es uns sehr erwünscht mit Ihnen Samstag Vormittag sprechen zu können, es wäre daher gut wenn Sie bis ½ 9 Uhr zu mir kommen könnten, um das Material was ich besitze ein wenig durchzusprechen, denn das Gedenkbuch der Pfarre ist ein wenig weitläufig angelegt [...]" (Brief vom 14. April 1871). "Der Herr Pfarrer hat mir heute den beiliegenden Zettel von der Kinderbewar Anstalt [...] überschickt [...]" (Brief vom 20. Juni 1871). - Beide Briefe etwas gebräunt und knittrig. - Haydinger musste im Alter von 12 Jahren die Schule verlassen und in der Gastwirtschaft seines Vaters mithelfen, die er 1822 übernahm. Die Lektüre historischer Werke regte ihn zur Anlage der ersten umfangreichen Viennensia-Sammlung an. Im Lauf der Zeit erwarb er ein derartiges Fachwissen auf bibliographischem Gebiet, dass ihn Experten des In- und Auslands konsultierten. Seine mehr als 12.000 Nummern umfassende Sammlung erstreckte sich auch auf Geschichte, Theatergeschichte, Kostümkunde, deutsche Literatur (vor allem Erstausgaben), Geschichte der Reformation und Gegenreformation bis zu den Hexenprozessen. Zur Erweiterung seiner Sammlung besuchte er Auktionen in ganz Europa, um seltene Stücke zu erwerben. Haydinger besaß die bedeutendste private Viennensia-Bibliothek in Wien. Nach seinem Tod wurde der Viennensia-, Josephinica- und Theatralia-Teil seiner Sammlung (5.253 Nummern.) - da die gesamte Sammlung wegen ihres hohen Werts (36.000 Gulden) von der Stadt Wien nicht angekauft werden konnte - von der Wiener Stadtbibliothek um 8.000 Gulden erworben, der Rest versteigert.

        The Theory of Political Economy.

      London and New York: Macmillan & Co.,, 1871. Octavo. Original brown pebble-grain cloth, titles to spine gilt, boards panelled in blind, black coated endpapers. Contemporary Irish bookseller's ticket to front pastedown. Extremities a little worn, front joint slightly tender, corners of boards bumped, a few minor marks to cloth, small loss and glue residue to rear endpaper, the occasional finger mark and sporadic light foxing to contents. A very good copy. First edition. Jevons (1835?1882), whom Schumpeter describes as "one of the most genuinely original economists who ever lived" (History of Economic Analysis, 1997, first published 1954, p. 826), here presents his marginal utility theory of value. Palgrave claims that in this work Jevons "attempts nothing less than the reconstruction of the science of economics as the calculus of human satisfactions." While often acclaimed as the discoverer of marginal utility theory, it would be truer to say that Jevons was the first to publish his findings. Walras was working in the same direction, as was Menger, and, in 1854, Gossen had already broached the subject in his Entwicklung der Gesetze des menschlichen Verkehrs.

        Middlemarch: a study of provincial life.

      Edinburgh & London: William Blackwood and Sons,, 1871?2. 4 volumes, octavo. Original bright blue sand-grain cloth, front cover with three-line outer border and decorative three-sided frame in black, rustic lettering in gold; spines lettered in gold, decorative band in gold at top and tail of spine between black rules, rear cover with three-line border blocked in blind, brown coated endpapers. Housed in a dark blue leather entry slipcase made by the Chelsea Bindery. Spines slightly darkened and a little rubbed, minor wear to tips, a few light marks to covers, a couple of hinges partly split but holding, text blocks sound. An exceptionally nice set; this is the best we have ever handled. First edition in book form of George Eliot's sixth and greatest novel, and rare in original unrestored cloth. The book proved problematic in some ways, being slow in composition and growing too long for the traditional three-decker format. It was Lewes who suggested to Blackwood that, on the model of Victor Hugo's Les Misérables, it should be serialized in eight parts at two-monthly intervals, and published in book form in four volumes. Sadleir notes that Middlemarch is difficult to find in fine state, as many of the four-volume book issues in cloth went to libraries, Middlemarch being particularly popular (Sadleir, p. 378).

        Eiji Kunmo Zukai or Ei Kuno Zukai depending on the transcriber].

      - Kyoto, Ogawa Kinsuke 1871 (Meiji 4). 225x155mm publisher's wrapper with title label; woodblock illustrations throughout. Some worming and a marginal stain, neat repairs to the first few margins. A very decent copy with its colour illustrated outer wrapper, this smudged and rumpled but complete and untorn. A rare and most appealing illustrated introduction to English. To an extent unseen in any other non-western culture faced with the colonial ambitions of the west the Japanese controlled their own re-education. They were not showered with unwanted primers by missionaries and other pious businessmen. They produced, printed and determinedly digested their own, using whatever sources they could find, the occasional hired expert and their imagination. The more I look at books like these, which were assiduously studied, the more I wonder how anyone learnt any English. How many Japanese went to their graves calling a camera a desk and hoping for an opportunity to introduce 'pluckant' into conversation? Leaving aside errors, books like these make no sense as tools to me but tens, hundreds of thousands of Japanese students set out with these as guides on the road of bunmei kaika - government sponsored enlightenment and civilization - and got there way faster than anyone should have. In fact the more I think about it the more I wonder how anyone learns any language.

        Paris incendié. Nuit du 24 au 25 mai 1871.

      Paris, Mon Martinet, 1871. 580 x 854 mm. Grande et spectaculaire vue à vol d'oiseau de Paris incendiée, dessinée et lithographiée par Charles Fichot. Ces incendies eurent lieu lors de l'épisode final de la Commune de Paris entre le dimanche 21 et le dimanche 28 mai, épisode appelé la Semaine Sanglante, à l'issue de laquelle la Commune fut écrasée et ses membres exécutés en masse. Les grands incendies qui vont ravager de nombreux monuments parisiens débutent le 23 mai. Dans la nuit du 24 au 25 mai, comme on peut le voir sur l'estampe, plusieurs incendies ravagent le Palais des Tuileries, le Louvre, le Palais-Royal, le Ministère des Finances, la Préfecture de Police, le Palais de Justice, le Palais d'Orsay (à l'emplacement de l'actuel Musée d'Orsay), ainsi que l'Hôtel de Ville, dont la totalité des archives de Paris, ainsi que tout l'état civil parisien, seront anéantis. La vue est prise depuis la place de la Concorde en regardant vers l'est, et montre, avec des effets de nuit impressionnants, les foyers d'incendie dont les lumières se reflètent sur la Seine. Sous l'estampe sont nommés les monuments incendiés. Bel exemplaire. Rare.
