Reverend Walter W. Skeat
London: John Childs And Son. Treatise on the Astrolabe by Geoffrey Chaucer Edited By Walter W. Skeat ,1872. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail. Treatise on the Astrolabe by Geoffrey Chaucer 1872 edition by the Reverend Walter W. Skeat Original warp soft cover , very good condition with minor shelf wear, illustrated with 7 woodcuts, and inscribed by the president of the early English society 1872 It's very rare and important book About the book : Chaucer, world famous as the author of The Canterbury Tales, wrote and published his Treatise on the Astrolabe - the first technical manual to be written in English - during the 1390s. The work details the many functions and parts of an astrolabe, which were elaborate scientific instruments used by astronomers and navigators to measure the positions of celestial objects, determine the time of night, the time of year, the altitude of an object over the horizon and to determine latitude (amongst many other uses). Their history can be traced back 2000 years but they were highly developed in the Islamic world by 800AD. Chaucer addressed the work to 'Little Lewis', who may have been his son. The 14th century manuscript of Treatise on the Astrolabe is held at St John's College Cambridge. The edition held by the BHI, though much later, is interesting in that it contains the impressions and notes of its editor, Skeat, who takes it upon himself to relate the work to Chaucer's other writings, in particular, The Canterbury Tales. Scholars have since demonstrated how Chaucer's imagining of time and place in The Canterbury Tales was influenced by t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Etat acceptable. Papier jauni, tâches et traces de manipulations. Petites déchirures. Plus de photos sur demande. Édition originale, publiée en livraisons, de ce roman de critique sociale écrit par Jean Vaucheret (Besançon, 1821, Paris, 1899) sous son pseudonyme de Jean Bruno. Elle est illustrée de 59 gravures sur bois dans le texte, qui toutes reproduisent des œuvres de Gustave Courbet. (Une 60e illustration figurait sur la couverture, qui n'a pas été conservée dans cet exemplaire). Les quelques spécialistes qui se sont penchés sur la question de cet ouvrage rare et peu connu n'en ont pas fait grand cas, laissant entendre que l'artiste s'était un peu désintéressé de cette publication, autorisant simplement à ce que ses œuvres soient reproduites par la gravure sur bois. Nous pensons au contraire que Courbet s'est impliqué dans cet ouvrage, qui semble n'avoir d'autre but que de proposer un catalogue très complet de ses peintures, sous couvert de littérature populaire en vogue à l'époque.

Karl Marx
An extremely rare autograph letter signed by Karl Marx, 13th January 1872. Addressed ‘Cher citoyen’ (likely the French publisher Maurice Lechâtre), Marx writes in French, ‘Please find enclosed pages 442-472 of the manuscript. I’d appreciate it if you could confirm receipt. Please send me the 100 copies of booklet II, adding 30 copies of booklet I, which you can put on my account. Best to you, Karl Marx.’ Marx refers here to the French edition of his great work Das Kapital, published by Lechâtre, initially in a serialized format in workers’ newspapers between 1872 and 1875. ‘In this form,’ Marx wrote,‘the book will be more accessible to the working-class, a consideration which to me outweighs everything else.’ Letters of Marx are highly-sought after and rare.

Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!" ― Lewis Carrol, Through the Looking-Glass 'Through the Looking Glass' was published a few years after the success of 'Adventures in Wonderland'. While it was never as popular as 'Adventures in Wonderland' it did include 'the greatest nonsense poem ever written in the English language', the "Jabberwocky" (Gardner). It was in this poem that Carroll created playful nonsense words that have become recognizable in English such as "galumphing" and "chortle." While the story itself is timeless, the dozens of Tenniel's bizarre, cartoon illustrations make this book especially desirable. Tenniel's illustrations are often considered the best of the 'Alice' illustrations.

Charles Darwin
London: John Murray, 1872. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I can provide a link to many more photos. Just ask! 1872 1ed Charles Darwin Expression of Emotion Evolution Human Behavior Animal "One general law, leading to the advancement of all organic beings, namely, multiply, vary, let the strongest live and the weakest die." ― Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species 'Expressions of the Emotions' was Darwin's third great work on his evolutionary theory, and was quite important, even though it was not nearly as popular as the prior two works, 'Origin' and 'Decent'. Darwin explores human behavior and how it relates to genetics, especially that of emotions. He dives deep into emotions such as anxiety, grief, and guilt, and how they impact human growth and evolution. Freeman says of this book, "The Expression of the Emotions is an important member of the evolutionary set, and it was written, in part at least, as a confutation of the idea that the facial muscles of expression in man were a special endowment... [Darwin concluded that] the chief expressive actions exhibited by man and by the lower animals are now innate or inherited." This work is the only work of Charles Darwin's to be illustrated with photographs and was his first to feature heliotype plates. Pictures come from photographer Oscar Rejlander, who decided to feature himself in many of the images. (Freeman 1188). According to Garrison & Morton, "Darwin examined the causes, physiological and psychological, of all the fundamental emotions in man and animals. He concluded that 'the chief expressive actions exhibited … [Click Below for Full Description]

Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!" ― Lewis Carrol, Through the Looking-Glass 'Through the Looking Glass' was published a few years after the success of 'Adventures in Wonderland'. While it was never as popular as 'Adventures in Wonderland' it did include 'the greatest nonsense poem ever written in the English language', the "Jabberwocky" (Gardner). It was in this poem that Carroll created playful nonsense words that have become recognizable in English such as "galumphing" and "chortle." While the story itself is timeless, the dozens of Tenniel's bizarre, cartoon illustrations make this book especially desirable. Tenniel's illustrations are often considered the best of the 'Alice' illustrations.

STANLEY, Henry M[orton].
London: Sampson Low, Marston, Low, and Searle, 1872. Octavo. Original red cloth over bevelled boards, gilt titles and black pictorial decoration to spine, front board decorated with 2 vignettes in gilt and black with, "Lake Tanganika" and "Dr. Livingstone I presume", blind frames to rear, blue-green coated endpapers. Spine-ends lightly refurbished, mottling to rear board, front inner hinge restored, short (30 mm) closed tear to first folding map stub; an internally clean and very good copy. Mounted albumen-print portrait frontispiece with tissue guard, 28 wood-engraved plates, numerous similar illustrations to the text, 4 folding maps, one further full-page map, and one sketch map to the text. First edition, uncommon in the cloth, copies often encountered rebound owing to the heavy text-block. Commissioned by James Gordon Bennett of the New York Herald to find the great missionary, of whom nothing had been heard for two years, Stanley reached Zanzibar in January 1871 after a circuitous trip through Asia. Two months later he set off from Bagamoyo on the African coast with a well-armed party of nearly 200 men, following the Arab slaving route west via Tabora to Lake Tanganyika where Livingstone was rumoured to be based. The route proved arduous and the party was beset by problems of climate, terrain and disease, as well as becoming embroiled in a war between the local Arabs and the chief of the Nyamwezi. Stanley finally made contact with Livingstone on or around the 18th September 1871 at Ujiji, giving rise to probably the most famous greeting in history: "Dr Livingstone, I p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Not Shakespeare (probable pseudonym of John Pitman)
West Medford, [Massachusetts, 1872. Unbound. Fine. Broadside printed in gold on indigo dyed glazed paper. Approximately 8.5" x 11". One small marginal tear else fine. A broadside advertising Pitman's shop through the use of poetic doggerel, signed as "Not Shakespeare". After giving his qualifications as a bootmaker in Boston for 25 years, Pitman concludes with a poem. The first three stanzas of the poem laud the cobbler's skill in repairing boots and shoes, the fourth and final stanza calls out to deliver unto him "Your foot-balls Boys, If they lose their wind, bring on for he can stop it. And lest you say I'm windy too, I think I'd better drop it." According to the *Medford Historical Society Papers*, "Jon Pitman, the fat and jolly boot maker, who kept the old curiosity shop in Brattle street..." opened his West Medford shop around 1872, for a brief period. This broadside, a fascinating example of printing with gold stamping on indigo dyed paper, is reminiscent of the Japanese textiles that were brought into the United States shortly after Commodore Perry opened trade with Japan. An early and informal version of American style football was played in the Boston area as early as the late 1850s that then evolved further when the first college football game was held in the Fall of 1869. This playful and waggish exhortation for boys to bring their deflated footballs to the jolly boot maker must certainly qualify as one of the earliest references in print to the new sport, and almost certainly the earliest poem to incorporate the sport. It is certainly the earliest we've seen … [Click Below for Full Description]

DARWIN, Charles
London: John Murray, 1872. 1872 1ed Charles Darwin Expression of Emotion Evolution Human Behavior Animal"One general law, leading to the advancement of all organic beings, namely, multiply, vary, let the strongest live and the weakest die."― Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species'Expressions of the Emotions' was Darwin's third great work on his evolutionary theory, and was quite important, even though it was not nearly as popular as the prior two works, 'Origin' and 'Decent'. Darwin explores human behavior and how it relates to genetics, especially that of emotions. He dives deep into emotions such as anxiety, grief, and guilt, and how they impact human growth and evolution. Freeman says of this book,"The Expression of the Emotions is an important member of the evolutionary set, and it was written, in part at least, as a confutation of the idea that the facial muscles of expression in man were a special endowment... [Darwin concluded that] the chief expressive actions exhibited by man and by the lower animals are now innate or inherited."This work is the only work of Charles Darwin's to be illustrated with photographs and was his first to feature heliotype plates. Pictures come from photographer Oscar Rejlander, who decided to feature himself in many of the images. (Freeman 1188).According to Garrison & Morton,"Darwin examined the causes, physiological and psychological, of all the fundamental emotions in man and animals. He concluded that 'the chief expressive actions exhibited by man and by the lower animals are now innate or inherited', and that most of the movements of e … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ce beau poème de 8 quatrains, probablement destiné à une revue, ne fut jamais recueilli en volume. Il provient de l'Ancienne collection Daniel Sickles [XIX, 8130]. La Plainte de Sapho Entends mur pleurer ma lyre Caverne sombre où dort l'écho Et toi que l'ouragan déchire, O mer, entends gémir Sapho ! Mes longs désirs, mes terreurs vaines Ont le fureur du flot amer Ce feu qui brule dans mes veines L'entendras-tu profonde mer ? Comme toi farouche et sublime, Et me plaignant quand vient le jour, Je sens un orageux abime Dans mon coeur altéré d'amour. Sous ton azur où tout s'efface Je veux chercher un calme abri ; Il me faut ta fraicheur de glace Pour rafraîchir mon sein meurtri. Je décroiserai dans ton ombre Mes bras longtemps martyrisés M'enivrant de ton vide sombre Et savourant tes longs baisers Car toi seule éteindras la fièvre Dont le frisson court sur mes dents, Et tu caresseras ma lèvre Pareille à des charbons ardents Prends mer profonde et caressante La prêtresse à l'oeil de feu Qui, pour ravoir sa vie absente Eût souhaité l'amour de Dieu.

Large broadsheet advertising land for sale along the route of the Burlington & Missouri River Railroad, in which the company offers 2,000,000 acres of the "best prairie lands" for sale in Iowa and Nebraska.

Each side contains a large map charting the route of the railroad, as well as vignettes illustrating the rolling prairie of Nebraska. The company touts the current ease of migration, indicating when it's best to emigrate and extolling the benefits of cooperative farming. The Burlington & Missouri Railroad was incorporated in 1852, and was turning a profit by 1868. In 1869 a branch was expanded into Nebraska, eventually joining with the Union Pacific in 1872 and linking Nebraska to the rest of the country.

Harris, Joseph
Tokyo: Yamatoya Kihee, Meiji 5 (1872). 2 vols. 8vo. Original wrappers, stitched as issued in the Japanese style (a little stained; early ownership stamps on first pages; light stains to upper margins and colophons). Complete copy in good condition. A remarkable Japanese abridged edition of Joseph Harris's "Harris on the Pig: Breeding, Rearing, Management, and Improvement" (New York, 1870), with a preface by Genkan Sumida. There are six charming illustrations of pigs and wild boar on five leaves, here rendered in fairly crude woodcuts. The utility of Harris's text is attested by the fact that this abridgement appeared in Japanese very soon after it was published in New York. There are chapters on the care of pigs, the species of pigs, how to make them fatter and more healthy, how to make a pig's shelter, preparation of food, etc. Highly curious.
