        A history of the birds of Europe, including all the species inhabiting the western palaearctic region.

      London, published by the author, 1871-1896. 9 volumes (including the supplement). Large-4to (320 x 250mm). With 723 (721 handcoloured) lithographic plates. Contemporary half calf, with richly gilt spines, topedges gilt. A very large and beautifully bound, spotless copy, with the rare supplement of this monumental work on the European avifauna. The excellent drawings of the plates were executed chiefly by J.G. Keulemans, some other by J. Wolf and E. Neale. "Dresser's text is highly scientific, his aim being to give a comprehensive account of all the European birds. Each species mentioned in the text was illustrated... The usual 'Gouldian' formula is followed with most birds perched either on a branch or on the ground, fairly detailed foreground plants and terrain, a lightly sketched background, pale blue tinted sky. As the birds themselves, there is usually one per page for the larger species, two where it is necessary to show the difference in plumage between male and female, and an occasional chick or immature bird" (Jackson. Bird Illustrators, p. 94).//Anker 120; Nissen IVB, 267.

        Missa Solennis (Full Score)

      Leipzig: J. Schuberth & Co, 1871. 1871 or that era. Folio. Fair (Ex-lib., usual markings; heavy wear to extremities of boards; spine mostly gone; front and back boards detached but present; ffep and title pages detached and heavily chipped; main block secure and mostly in good condition but with brittle page edges). Tan paper over boards; Dark brown cloth at spine; 129 pp. comprised totally of a musical score. Oversize (15 x 21.5 inches) and heavy (7.5 pounds / 3.4 kilos). The mass was composed by Franz Liszt between 1855 and 1858 for the dedication of the new part of the cathedral at Esztergom, Hungary (by Archbishop Janos Scitovszky). Liszt conducted the work, and the organist was Alexander Winterberger. The dedication concert (the work's premiere) was on August 31, 1856. The reverberation time in the cathedral is 9 seconds (Wikipedia), creating the potential for an acoustic nightmare in performing a piece of this magnitude! The performance was attended by 4,000 guests, including Emperor Franz Joseph I and other imperial majesties of Austria-Hungary, ecclesiastical dignitaries, well-known musicians, and members of the press. After the premiere, Liszt (and others) continued to make various small changes and corrections to the original score. The first publication was in 1859, by the Imperial Printing House, Vienna, followed by subsequent editions and variations (piano reductions, etc.) by J. Schuberth (1871...), G. Schirmer (1909...), etc. This particular edition/volume contains NO individual parts (violin, flute, soprano, etc.) for actual performance but IS an actual, complete copy of the entire conductor's score, meaning that it includes all the orchestral, organ, vocal soloist (SATB), and choral (SATB) parts (with vocal text) all together for a conductor to use in rehearsal or performance. This edition was published by J. Schuberth & Co. (no date), likely in Leipzig (rather than New York or Philadelphia), as the names of the instruments are listed in German, and the price on the front cover is listed in Thaler, an old German/European coinage. The work is complete: Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Benedictus, Agnus Dei, with all parts readable, even where margins are chipped. An excellent copy for the conducting student, Liszt afficionado, musical researcher, or someone interested in Hungarian/Esztergom ecclesiastical history.

Michaux followed his father's work on the oaks published in 1801 with 'Histoire des arbres' (3 vols., 1810) later published in English through the encouragement of Maclure, and much later considerably enlarged by Nuttall" (Ewan). The first English edition was published in Paris 1817-19 to be followed by many editions, the work of Nuttall was first incorporated in Michaux's work in the 1841-42 edition."François André Michaux, born in 1770, accompanied his father to the United States in 1785 and was primary responsible for the management of the nursery that was established near Charleston, S.C. In 1790 he returned to France, where he studied medicine and took part in the French Revolution. He went back to the United States in 1801 to collect trees for the French government. He explored the eastern and mid-western portions of the country and returned finally to France in 1809" (Phail). The excellent plates were drawn by the Redouté brothers, Pierre Joseph and Henri Joseph, along with Pancrase Bessa. Plates 30 and 31 of the first volume by Nutall were never published.Stafleu & Cowan 5966 & 6930. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

On the spine, gilt roll at head- and tail-piece, with title, author and volume gilt. Black end-papers. Ownership stamp of Canon H.P. Liddon on front blank of both volumes. The current item may be regarded as a significant document in one of the most consequential debates in Western thought: that of the role of science within religion. Liddon’s reclamation of Darwin in his "Famous Sermon", delivered at St. Paul’s Cathedral three days after Darwin’s death, was a project that had perhaps begun a decade prior while reading this copy of the Descent.

        A Roman Emperor AD 41 - Alma-Tadema.

      A ROMAN EMPEROR AD 41Ets vervaardigd door Paul Rajon naar het schilderij (Opus LXXXVIII uit 1871) van Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Later met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 21 x 44,3 cm.Hier legt Alma-Tadema een belangrijke gebeurtenis vast uit de Romeinse politieke geschiedenis: de proclamatie van Claudius tot keizer na de moord op zijn neef, de corrupte Calligula. In plaats van traditionele Romeinse heldhaftigheid te benadrukken toont Alma-Tadema een grotestke Claudius, die zich verschult achter een gordijn terwijl de Pretoriaanse lijfwacht nadert.Ook de compositie ondermijnt de conventies van de traditionele historieschilderkunst. In het midden van het tafereel, op de plek die gewoonlijk werd ingenomen door de Romeinse held, liggen de lijken van Caligula en zijn bondgenoten schaamteloos op de grond, terwijl de handeling is verplaatst naar de rand van het werk. Links dringt een onstuimige groep gewapende bewakers en nieuwsgierige vrouwen de kamer binnen; een figuur houdt een aantal kostbare voorwerpen vastgeklemd, in de tumult geplunderd uit het paleis. In deze corrupte wereld is niet het heroïsche individu, maar de meedogenloze Pretoriaanse lijfwacht die de macht uitoefent in het Romeinse Rijk. De New York Times schrijft in december 1882: de voorstelling belichaamt het begin van het eind van het Romeinse Rijk, het moment van overgang van vitaliteit naar decadentie; dit was de eerste keer dat een keizer werd gekozen door het leger in plaats van door de senaat. Op de achterwand zien we een fresco dat de slag bij Attcum voorstelt, het memoreert aan de moed van het Romeinse verleden; de abrubte afsnijding aan de bovenkant suggereert echter dat deze herinnering niet relevant is binnen het huidige vertoon van brute kracht. Het marmeren beeld van Augustus in het midden speelt een vergelijkbare rol: zijn gebeeldhouwde gelaatstrekken zijn de enige op het schilderij die de waardigheid van een Romeinse held uitstralen?maar zijn sokkel is besmeurd met bloed. Augustus" wereld van Romeins heldendom is vervangen door wereld van geweld temidden van buitensporige luxe, aangeduid met het overdadige paleisinterieur.Prijs: € 1.250,- (incl. lijst).

        Fors Clavigera Letters to the Workmen and Labourers of Great Britain (8 volumes) + Ariadne Florentina in similar binding

      London: George Allen, 1871. First. VG, binding quite nice, Scattered light foxing in spots, but not prevalent. A very appealing set with Byrdcliffe bookplates. Full calf leather with 6 raised bands and dark leather labels with author, title and date applied. Marbled endpapers. All bound similar and signed Ramage. 9 volumes, 6 with small "Byrdcliffe" bookplate inside front cover. Flors Clavigera described as follows: 8 bound volumes with NO Index volume. The books were printed between 1871 and 1884. Ariadne Florentina described as follows: Published in 1876. Numerous plates within. Lecture I: The Art of Engraving; II The Relation of Engraving to Other Arts in Florence; III The Technics of Wood and Engraving; IV The Technics of Metal Engraving; V Design in the German Schools of Engraving (Holbein and Durer); VI Design in the Florentine Schools of Engraving (Sandro Botticell). As lovelly as this set of books is, it is further enhanced with the bookplate of Byrdcliffe being present in 6 of the 9 volumes. Byrdcliffe was the Utopian Arts and Crafts Community in Woodstock, NY founded by Ralph Radcliffe Whitehead at the turn of the 20th Century. This set was in the comunity reference library there, and represents an incredible link between Ruskin, Whitehead and the American Arts and Crafts Movement. The Binder, John Ramage, was born in London in 1836. When Ramage came out of his apprenticeship in 1856, he took the unusual step for an English binder of going to Paris and working under Lortic, one of the leading French binders of the day. In 1860 Ramage returned to Britain and purchased the Edinburgh business of Alexander Banks Jnr, stating in the 1861 census returns that he employed 8 men, 3 boys, 6 women and 1 girl. Three years later he moved his business to London, where there was more work. He moved to larger premises in Warwick Lane in 1870, and from there he went to Warwick Square and in 1891 to Creed Lane. He died in 1911.

        Kooloo – Lahoul – Chumba:

      1871-3. an album of over 50 watercolour sketches taken in the Lower Himalayan regions of the Punjab, present-day Himachal Pradesh. Folio album (375 × 515 mm). Contemporary dark green half morocco, mid-green morocco-grained cloth, for R. Ackermann, Regent Street, matching patch label, lettered as above to the front board, low bands to the spine with broad gilt rules, paired thick and thin gilt rules to spine and corner edges. 53 finished watercolours & 1 pencil drawing mounted rectos only on light card mounting leaves within inked line borders; 29 of the watercolours measure approximately 250 x 350 mm, and 17 around 170 x 250 mm, with the remaining 7 in marginally smaller or larger formats. The majority are captioned in the image in pencil or colour, all have detailed ink captioning on the mounting leaves. A further 6 watercolours have been loosely inserted A little rubbed and scuffed, corners through, some minor stripping, leaves lightly browned and slightly rippled, some minor marginal soot-smutting towards the front, the watercolours all in excellent condition, overall very good. Superbly vivid pictorial record of travels through the Himalayan regions of the Punjab, now the state of Himachal Pradesh. Harcourt's journey took him from present-day Kullu to Killar between the 2 to the 30 of September 1871; he then later visited to the hill station of Dalhousie between June and October 1873, with images of excursions to the Beas Valley and Rohtang Pass, to Gondla west of Dalhousie, taking in the village of Kugti in the Chamba District in September 1873. The sketches are immediate and detailed, if impressionistic, suggesting that they were taken with the intention of working them up as more highly finished images later, together they convey a telling impression of the rugged, mountainous scenery of this Himalayan region, many of them also showing built structures, native houses, villages, and temples, and the numerous precipitously gorge-spanning "joola" rope suspension bridges. The watercolours are unsigned, but have been firmly attributed to Alfred Frederick Pollock Harcourt (1836-1910). Captain A.F.P. Harcourt was Assistant Commissioner in the Punjab from April 1869 to March 1871. He "served in India from 1855 to 1889 Â… was with the 30th Native Infantry when they mutinied in 1857 and in 1858 took part in the relief of Lucknow. For a short spell he served with the Oudh police, joining the 44th Native Infantry in 1861 and the 4th Sikh Infantry in 1862. In the same year he was transferred to the Bengal Staff Corps and for the remainder of his service worked as a civil officer in the Punjab. During the next twenty-seven years he was posted to Rawalpindi, Dera Ismail Khan, Delhi, Jullundur, Kangra, Karnal, Hoshiarpur, Jhang, Gurdaspur, Lahore, Montgomery and Rohtak. He clearly delighted in the Punjab Hills, especially Kullu, where he was posted in 1869 and where he found scope for painting landscapes and the local people" (British Library, India Office Select Materials). He "was the first person to take note of the architectural grandeur of the temples in the Kullu Valley. He classified the temples of Kullu Valley in four architectural categories" (Mian Goverdhan Singh: Wooden temples of Himachal Pradesh. New Delhi, 1999, p. 60). In 1871 Harcourt published an account of the region, The Himalayan districts of Kooloo, Lahoul, and Spiti, the book was illustrated with just four lithographs from his drawings of local people. The four drawings used for the book are held in the British Library's India Office Collection, part of their collection of 545 drawings by Harcourt executed between 1861 and 1889. A comparison of the watercolours in the present album with the digitised images of Harcourt's work in the British Library collection show similarities of style, palette, the manner in which the sketches are captioned and dated, and in the handwriting of the captions itself. The album, which would have been compiled after Harcourt returned to England in 1889, fills chronological lacunae in the British Library holdings among which there is just a single image dating from 1871, and only seven dating from February and October 1873. Present here are 39 watercolours dated between 2 and 30 September 1871, representing a kind of "visual diary" of a journey up the Kullu Valley - the Beas River, the Hyphasis of the Greeks, easternmost extent of Alexander's conquests, where he faced mutiny and turned back - from Kullu past Naggar and Palchan, then across the Rohtang Pass, which provides a sort of natural divide between the humid Kullu Valley with a primarily Hindu culture to the south, and the Buddhist culture of the arid high-altitude Lahaul and Spiti valleys in the north - Bhag and Chenab Rivers - to Khoksar, Sissu and Thoran, and across the Sach Pass to Killar. After resigning his commission in the Punjab in March 1871, Harcourt journeyed into the Himalayas in the late summer. Among the better-known localities depicted is Triloknath, sacred to both Buddhists and Hindus, site of the sixteenth-century temple built by Sultan Devi, queen of Raja Ajbar Sen, 1st raja of Mandi, one of the oldest temples in the region, and renowned for its image of Shiva as the three-faced Triloknath - Lord of the Three Worlds. The 15 watercolours which date from June, September and October 1873 include views of the Rohtang Pass and Ghondla, as well as several views of Dalhousie and Chamba. The latest watercolour in the album is of Dalhousie, and is dated October 1873. These were most likely executed on a second visit to the region by Harcourt, presumably while on leave. We know that in late October Harcourt was again travelling to the south of Kullu, as is evidenced by one of the watercolours in the British Library, 'Bullock carts; their drivers sleeping beneath them, Sakrah (Punjab)', dated 26 October 1873. This refers to the small village of Sakra in Mandi district. There are a further 6 watercolours loosely inserted into the album, 4 of them clearly by Harcourt. A very large landscape - 508 × 358 mm, which identifies the proportions of the sketches mounted in the album as being half- and quarter-sheet - titled on the back in ochre crayon "India - Himalaya"; two smaller - half-sheet - landscapes, one identified in pencil in the lower corner as Juggatsookh, or Jagatsukh, onetime capital of Kullu, and on the back in crayon "India - falling rocks", the other showing "Flights of steps on the way between Sach and Kilar Sept. 28th", showing a steepling "staircase" ascending the side of the pass, again captioned "India - Himalaya" verso. The last of the Harcourt images is again a half-sheet, and shows a mounted Indian cameleer, indistinctly captioned ?"17th Jan". The two remaining images are identified verso in Harcourt's hand as being the work of "C. Wyndham", done in 1852 and presented to Harcourt in 1883. Wyndham was Maj. Charles Wyndham (1827-1908), of the 9th Bengal Light Cavalry, the illegitimate son of Col. Charles Wyndham (1796-1866), 7th Hussars, himself the illegitimate son of George O'Brien Wyndham, 3rd earl of Egremont. The first, captioned in ink verso "Coming through the snow, May 17th 1852" (199 × 245 mm), shows a thrilling scene of Capt. Wyndham and his wife being assisted by bearers along a heavily drifted pass. The other (196 × 284 mm), ink caption verso "Breakfast place", shows Mrs. Wyndham in a tent on a wooded slope, attended by her servant, together with a sensitive portrait of the servant "Madoo Sing of Khursalee [Kursalee near Simla]", carrying her parasol, dated "June 1st 1852". The BL's collection of Harcourt's work was donated by Duncan Grant, Harcourt being Grant's mother's cousin's uncle, of whom she was very fond. "Harcourt married Georgiana Willis, first cousin of Ethel McNeil, the mother of Duncan Grant. Early in life Miss McNeil became an orphan and lived with the Harcourts in India for some years before marrying Bartle Grant of the 8th Hussars" (BLIOSM). The direct provenance of the present album is to Marjorie Timbs, née Heather, a school teacher from Sussex who emigrated to Australia after the death of her husband to be near her remaining family, and left it to her nephew. We have been unable to trace a link between Grant and Marjorie, beyond the presence of both in Sussex. A highly appealing, and previously unrecorded, personal record of the foothills of the Himalayas in the mid-nineteenth century. A full listing of the captions and dimensions of the watercolours is available on request.

An attractive set with minimal ex-library damage. First Edition, first issue, with the publisher's ads dated January 1871 present in both volumes, the first word is "Transmitted" on page 297 in Volume I (changed to "When" in later editions), and the errata on the verso of the title leaf of Volume II with seventeen errata lines for Volume I, eight lines for Volume II. This set was deaccessioned by Lehigh University and later sold by John Howell-Books (with their notes in the back of vol. I). A landmark book in the history of science, most notably for the use of the word “evolution” by Darwin for the first time (vol. I, page 2). Also Darwin’s famous speculation appears in print for the first time: “"In each great region of the world the living mammals are closely related to the extinct species of the same region. It is therefore probable that Africa was formerly inhabited by extinct apes closely allied to the gorilla and chimpanzee; and as these two species are now man’s nearest allies, it is somewhat more probable that our early progenitors lived on the African continent than elsewhere "(Vol. 1, p. 199).

      [Cuba, 1871. Folio. Later stitching. Heavy offsetting. Good. An interesting manuscript recording the bill of sale of the coffee plantation "La Criolla" and its slaves. The slaves are listed individually by name and include many children, some as young as three years old. The document is detailed, outlining the timeline for payment and including a clause for sale of the slaves if certain deadlines are not met. This bill of sale was recorded at an interesting time in Cuba's slavery history. Though Cuba ended its participation in the slave trade in 1867, it was not until 1886 that slavery was finally abolished by royal decree.

        [Caine, Hall- Autograph Letter] Fabulous Letter to Hargrave Morrison, Upon Receiving Rossetti's Spectacles

      Three pages, Greeba Castle, Isle of Man. "Horrey's Hotel, Strand, W.C. 4/May/99." A wonderful letter written by Hall Caine, Dante Gabriel Rossetti's secretary and close friend, to a Hargrave Morrison, thanking him for sending "Rossetti's spectacles. "My Dear Sir, I trust you will excuse the delay in acknowledging your great kindness in sending me Rossetti's spectacles. It has been due to my absence from home and the pressure of many occupations since I came to London. I rejoice to possess these further mementos of my dear friend. Immediately I opened the box I knew whose glasses they were, to speak more exactly I knew that Rossetti had worn glasses with a bridge of the same shape. My sister, who was with us at the moment when we removed to Birchington [Rossetti's burial place], seemed to identify the spectacles at once. I also remember the Chelsea photographer, who was at the time you refer to taking photographs of 'Dante's Dream' and other pictures. Yours truly and with many hearty thanks, Hall Caine. Hargrave Morrison, Esq. " "Dante's Dream" was Rossetti's largest painting [1871]; and the model for Beatrice was Lizzie Siddal, Rossetti's wife,

Vorliegend die Originalausgaben der 3 ersten Jahrgänge. Als Gründerin und Herausgeberin fungierte die jüdisch-deutsche Schriftstellerin und Frauenrechtlerin Jenny Hirsch (1829-1901). Nach ihrer Teilnahme an der ersten Frauenkonferenz in Leipzig 1865 wurde sie im Folgejahr Gründungsmitglied und Geschäftsführerin des "Verein zur Förderung der Erwerbsfähigkeit des weiblichen Geschlechts", des sogenannten "Lette-Verein". 1869 übersetzte sie John Stuart Mills "Die Hörigkeit der Frau" ins Deutsche, ferner gründete und redigierte sie die Zeitschrift "Der Frauen-Anwalt". Ziel war die Erwerbsfähigkeit und damit die ökonomische Befreiung und Selbständigkeit der Frau. In diesem Sprachrohr der frühen deutschen Frauenbewegung publizierten die bekannten Pionierinnen der weiblichen Emanzipation, allen voran (mit insgesamt 9 Beiträgen) die Schriftstellerin Louise Büchner (Schwester Georg Büchners, 1821-1877), ferner mit Beiträgen von Fanny Lewald, Henriette Hirschfeld, Mathilde Lammers, Jenny Hirsch, Henriette Goldschmidt u.v.a. In der Mehrzahl waren Frauen die Beiträger zu dieser Zeitschrift, daneben wurden aber auch Aufsätze zur Frauenfrage von bekannten Männern der Zeit wie z.B. Dr. Esmarch, Prof. Holtzendorff, Prof. Emminghaus etc. darin publiziert. - Alle drei Jahrgänge vollständig, sauber und sehr gut erhalten.

        Middlemarch: a Study in Provincial Life.

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons,, 1871-72. 4 volumes, octavo (173 × 109 mm). Contemporary quarter calf, spines gilt tooled overall with a wave-like floriate pattern, red morocco labels, marbled sides, red speckled edges, pale blue endpapers. Contemporary pencilled ownership inscription of "R. J. Butler" at head of volume I title page, without the half-title in volume I, spines a little rolled, label of volume IV chipped, fore-edges and a few gatherings foxed, "The Right of Translation" at foot of title pages to volumes I & II just shaved by the binder. An attractive set. First edition of George Eliot's masterpiece and one of the peaks of 19th-century literature. "This astonishingly fully realised 'study of provincial life' - the subtitle of the novel - brought the author admiring reviews and letters from friends and strangers enthusing about her understanding of human life, male and female, rich and poor, professional and domestic, married and unmarried, happy and unhappy. In Middlemarch, the social changes of the early 1830s are thoroughly absorbed into the multiple plot connections between individuals—what the narrator calls 'the stealthy convergence of human lots'. And George Eliot shows more than ever before her ability to enter imaginatively into the consciousness of every kind of human being, from the naïve, aspiring Dorothea Brooke to the petrified pedant Casaubon, from the ambitious Dr Lydgate to his ill-matched unresponsive wife, Rosamond, from the loud merchant and mayor Vincy to his brother-in-law, the evangelical banker Bulstrode. The portrayal of the two unhappy marriages, the Lydgates' and the Casaubons', drew praise from Freud; Henry James wrote of the 'painful fireside scenes between Lydgate and his miserable little wife' that there was 'nothing more powerfully real' and 'nothing certainly more intelligent' in all English fiction" (ODNB).
