        CLOUD-PICTURES: 1. THE EXILE OF VON ADELSTEIN'S SOUL 2. TOPANKALON 3. HERR REGENBOGEN'S CONCERT 4. A GREAT-ORGAN PRELUDE.

      Boston: Lee and Shepard, Publishers, 1872 - Octavo, pp. [i-v] vi [vii-viii] [1] 2-166 [167-168: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], flyleaves at front and rear, original decorated dark green bevel-edged cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold and copper, slate coated endpapers. First edition. "A collection of four short stories, all fantastic, that has been overlooked by fantasy bibliographers. The first, 'The Exile of von Adelestein's Soul,' is the longest and the best. A nobleman accidentally runs down and kills a young crippled boy. His mother puts a curse on him. Subsequently, every night from 8 PM until 8 AM, von Adelstein goes into a cataleptic trance, waking up exhausted. He is slowly dying. The priest of the manor house consults Albertus Nyktalops, or Albert the Bat, who has a reputation of being a wizard -- which is a good thing, since the dead boy's mother has a reputation of being a witch. Working together, the priest and the wizard discover that the witch has reanimated the boy's corpse and is forcing von Adlestein's soul into it at night and forcing it to perform all sorts of degrading labors while lashing its back. While some of the most intriguing aspects of the story are not as developed as they might have been, this has some very interesting ideas. Among other things, it amounts to a psychic detective story. 'Herr Regenbogan's Concert' deals with synaesthesia." - Robert Eldridge. Wright (II) 2573. Front flyleaf missing, a few leaves lightly foxed, else a bright, near fine copy.

        Picturesque America

      Appleton, New York, 1872. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. BRYANT, WILLIAM CULLEN [editor]. Picturesque America or The Land We Live In, New York: D. Appleton and Co., 1872-74. Folios, first edition, pp. viii, 568; vi, 576, brown pebbled cloth boards half-bound in brown morocco, gilt lettering and blind-stamped decoration to spines, which have four raised bands, gilt lettering and image of artist's easel to fronts, all edges gilt, former owner's ID embossed to endpages. Profusely illustrated with wood and steel engravings in text and on 49 plates. This work was issued in 48 parts over two years, and subscribers were invited to have all parts bound into two volumes, as is the case here. Illustration is good, bad, and indifferent, but what Bryant lacked in quality he made up for in quantity. There is a huge number of images here, especially considering that American book illustration was only beginning to come into its own during this era. The illustrations show a post-Civil War America on the upswing, with an emphasis on scenery and industrial cities. This was one of the most elaborate and influential of the post-Civil War American illustrated books. Percy Muir, in "Victorian Illustrated Books" (Portman), says F.O.C. Darley, the star illustrator here, became nationally famous for his American themes and was without peer in his field, although he later fell into oblivion (p. 256). Also see Sabin 62692 and BAL 1732. Condition of these books: Boards rubbed at extremities. Generally clean, tight, scattered light foxing, staining in margins. Overall very good and sound. Size: Large Folio (bigger than A3). 2-volume set (complete). Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Over 3 kilos. Category: Antiquarian & Rare; United States; 19th century; Art & Design. Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request. Inventory No: 52979. .

        Alice?s Adventures In Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass.

      London: MacMillan and Co. 1872 & 1886, 1872. Octavo, bound by Bayntun Riviere in full crushed red morocco, all edges gilt, emblematic gilt spine compartments, raised bands, gilt turn-ins, gilt figure of the White Rabbit on front cover of Alice, gilt figure of the Red Queen on front cover of Looking-Glass, original cloth covers and spines bound in. Cloth slipcase. Alice'a Adventures in Wonderland is a later printing. Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There is a first edition, first printing. Illustrated by John Tenniel, text illustrated. A stunning set. Alice's Adventures were "born on a golden afternoon" in July 1862, when the Rev. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll) took the three small daughters of Dean Liddell of Christ Church on a boating trip up the Isis. Carroll delighted the three children by relating Alice's adventures, and eventually promised his favorite among the three, Alice Liddell, to write the story down for her. Through the Looking-Glass can be seen as a mirror image of the Alice's Adventures. For example, the latter begins outdoors in the warmth of May 4 and uses the imagery of playing cards, while the former begins indoors on a snowy, cold November 4 and uses the imagery of chess. "The two Alice books completed the reinstatement of the imagination, so long disapproved of by the opponents of fairy stories, to its proper place. ?'Alice is, in a word, a book of that extremely rare kind which will belong to all the generations to come until the language becomes obsolete?'" (Carpenter & Prichard, 102).

        The Works Of William Makepeace Thackeray

      73 - London - Smith, Elder and Co. 1872 - An attractive twelve volume set of the Thackeray's works, in very attractive leather bindings and with frontispiece plates and illustrations throughout. The set contains the following works:Volume I: Vanity FairVolume II: History of PendennisVolume III: The NewcomesVolume IV: The History of Henry Esmond and The Memoirs of Barry LyndonVolume V: The VirginiansVolume VI: The Adventues of Phillip and A Shabby Genteel StoryVolume VII: Paris Sketch Book and Irish Sketch BookVolume VIII: The Great Hoggarty DiamondVolume IX: The Book of SnobsVolume X: Roundabout Papers and Four GeorgesVolume XI: Catherine and Lovel The Widower etcVolume XII: Christmas BooksWilliam Makepeace Thackeray (18 July 1811 24 December 1863) was an English novelist of the 19th century. He was famous for his satirical works, particularly Vanity Fair, a panoramic portrait of English society. He worked for Fraser's Magazine, a sharp-witted and sharp-tongued conservative publication, for which he produced art criticism, short fictional sketches, and two longer fictional works, Catherine and The Luck of Barry Lyndon. From 1837 to 1840 he also reviewed books for The Times. Later, through his connection to the illustrator John Leech, he began writing for the newly created Punch magazine, where he published The Snob Papers, later collected as The Book of Snobs. In the early 1840s, Thackeray had some success with two travel books, The Paris Sketch Book and The Irish Sketch Book. He achieved more recognition with his Snob Papers (serialised 1846/7, published in book form in 1848), but the work that really established his fame was the novel Vanity Fair, which first appeared in serialised installments beginning in January 1847. Even before Vanity Fair completed its serial run, Thackeray had become a celebrity, sought after by the very lords and ladies whom he satirised; they hailed him as the equal of Dickens. On 23 December 1863, after returning from dining out and before dressing for bed, Thackeray suffered a stroke and was found dead in his bed in the morning. His death at the age of fifty-two was entirely unexpected, and shocked his family, friends, and reading public. An estimated 7000 people attended his funeral at Kensington Gardens. He was buried on 29 December at Kensal Green Cemetery, and a memorial bust sculpted by Marochetti can be found in Westminster Abbey. Condition: In decorative calf binding with gilt detailing. Extrnally smart, there is some minor wear to the extremities, joints and backstrips only, as well as some markings to boards. Internally the pages are firmly bound and largely bright and clean throughout aside from some foxing to endpages and the odd spot. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Om Arternes Oprindelse ved Kvalitetsvalg eller ved de heldigst stillede Formers Sejr i Kampen for Tilværelsen. Efter Originalens femte Udgave oversat af J.P. Jacobsen.

      Kjøbenhavn, Gyldendalske Boghandel (F. Hegel), 1872. 8vo. Bound in contemporary half calf with 4 raised bands and gilt lettering to spine. Spine rubbed. A few light brownspots throughout. Otherwise a fine and clean copy. (10), XIII, 605, (1) + 1 plate.. The Scarce first Danish edition (translated from the 5. edition) of Darwin's monumental "On the Origin of Species". "In 1872 the book was translated into Danish by the young botanist J. P. Jacobsen. He was soon to become a celebrated novelist famous for Marie Grubbe - A Lady of the Seventeenth Century (1876) and Niels Lyhne (1880). In the early 1870's, however, he was still dedicated to science. In 1873 he received the University of Copenhagen's Gold Medal for his work on desmids, single-celled green freshwater algae. The Descent of Man was also translated by Jacobsen and appeared in 1874-75. "In the early 1870s [With the Danish translation] the literary critic Georg Brandes started promoting Darwin's ideas as part of his liberal ideology and soon Darwinism became the mark of a new generation of intellectuals. Both the Steenstrup circle and the Brandes circle held Darwin in high esteem, but made completely different attributions to his theory. Consequently they both decided to raise money separately for the same Darwin. Darwin had borrowed the collection of barnacles from the Zoology Museum in Copenhagen with the help of Steenstrup. As a compliment Darwin sent him a signed copy of the Origin. Steenstrup acknowledged Darwin as an important fellow naturalist, but like many of his colleagues at the University of Copenhagen he never accepted evolutionary theory. The initial scientific reaction to Darwin's work on evolution by means of natural selection was respectful, but made few converts. memorial in 1882. Independently, Darwinism transformed as it became part of popular culture. "(Kjærsgaard, Darwinism comes to Denmark)Freeman: 643. (PMM 344 - first edition)

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland [together with:] Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There. With Forty-Two [and] Fifty Illustrations by John Tenniel.

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1866 & 1872 - 2 works, octavo (187 x 117; 177 x 117 mm). Late 20th century red full calf by Bayntun, spines emblematically tooled in gilt, twin green morocco labels, two-line gilt border on sides enclosing gilt stamps of the White Rabbit and Red Queen, richly gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, original cloth covers and spines bound-in. Housed in a fleece-lined red cloth slipcase. Early presentation inscription on half-title of Wonderland (dated "Xmas 1865"). A few light marks to bindings. Illustrated throughout by Sir John Tenniel. First published editions, first issue of Through the Looking-Glass (with the misspelling of "wabe" on p. 21). Famously, the first edition of 2,000 copies of Wonderland was recalled by Dodgson, due to what either he, or Tenniel, felt to be the unsatisfactory reproduction of Tenniel's illustrations; "it has been questioned whether the first edition [of 1865] was ever published, in the strict sense of being on sale to the public and sent to the copyright libraries. Assuming that only a strict 2,000 copies were printed at the Clarendson Press, Dodgson seems to have regained all but 10 copies" (Williams, Madan & Green). For this new edition the book was entirely reset by Richard Clay and was published in November 1865, although dated "1866". It is this version which formed the basis for all future Macmillan editions. A handsomely bound set. Williams, Madan & Green 46 & 84. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Through The Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1872 Illustrated by John Tenniel. First edition, first printing, with "wade" instead of "wabe" to page 21. Finely bound in full crimson morocco by Bayntun-Riviere, with five raised bands to the spine, lettered in gilt, spine compartments and bands ruled in gilt, boards ruled in gilt, with an illustration of the Red Queen to the front board, with an illustration of the White Queen to the rear panel, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, green and purple floral patterned endpapers, original cloth bound in at rear. About fine, with a former owner's Christmas 1871 inscription to the half-title, a few hints of scattered and light spotting to the otherwise fresh pages. A beautiful copy of a scarce book in a fine morocco binding. Through the Looking Glass is Lewis Carroll's sequel to his popular children's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). In this story, which represents the child protagonist's journey from adolescence to adulthood, Alice ventures into a fantasy world through the mirror above her fireplace. Throughout the novel, Carroll includes nonsense poetry, including the playful and popular "Jabberwocky." Like Alice, Through the Looking Glass is illustrated by John Tenniel. Carroll originally intended to write this sequel as early as 1866, but had trouble persuading Tenniel to illustrate it. Writer and artist had a somewhat volatile relationship as a result of their mutual perfectionism: just as the true first edition of Alice was suppressed because of unsatisfactory illustrations, Through the Looking Glass's illustrations were heavily edited. Tenniel demanded the removal of a character that was too difficult to illustrate, whereas Carroll replaced Tenniel's "Jabberwock" plate with an image of the White Knight, which was less frightening, as a frontispiece. This volume's beautiful binding complements the fine condition of the text block and the quality of illustrations without losing the aesthetic of the original publication; Bayntun-Riviere's covers mimic the Appleton binding in color and design.. Illus. by Tenniel, John. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Fine.

        Der Festungskrieg im Feldzuge gegen Frankreich 1870-1871. Mit 19 lithographiretn Plänen.

      Berlin, Gustav Hempel 1872 - Crown quarto. Pp. vi, 271. Plus 19 fine lithograph maps, some of which are folding, bound at end. Hardcover, bound in contemporary quarter calf and marbled boards, green vellum French corners, spine with false raised bands between compartments, gilt lettering direct; boards were partly detached at one time and inner hinges were expertly strengthened and joints mended; old military institutional stamps to title-page and verso of maps, discreet magnetic strip at bottom of one page, even browning to some maps, some spotting. Withal a respectful tome in good condition. ~ First edition. Very rare. Jordan 3768; Baldamus II, 52. See also: B. E. Palat: "Bibliographie générale de la guerre de 1870-1871" (Paris, 1896), p. 464. The charm of this book lies in the wonderful lithographic maps which clearly were not meant to serve as mere carriers of information but to provide charm and elegance due to their artistic merit. Six of the maps have a hole dug into them close to the blank margin, probably a rodent's activity. They were all expertly restored by professional hand. One has the repair clearly in the blank margin and two others in practically blank areas of the image. Very minor loss in the remaining is compensated herewith with expert's scans from the copy at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek which are provided for reference.

        [FIFTEEN MOUNTED PHOTOGRAPHS, INCLUDING VIEWS OF HONOLULU, SAN FRANCISCO, THE CENTRAL PACIFIC RAILROAD, SALT LAKE CITY, AND NEW ZEALAND]

      [Various places, 1872. Some minor soiling on cards, some images slightly faded. Very good. Archivally matted, protected with a mylar sheet. An excellent collection of views, quite early for Hawaii and New Zealand. The four views of Honolulu include one wide view of the town, a view of a side street with a church steeple in the background, the Pali mountain pass, and the harbor with several large vessels at anchor. In New Zealand the Supreme Court building in Christchurch and the city of Littleton are displayed. The San Francisco images include the Palace Hotel and the famous Cliff House. Of particular interest are the three views of the Central Pacific Railway. The sections of the track include Capestown, the Palisade, and Summit Station, each with fresh evidence of the line's recent completion. Also in the collection is one image of a railroad along the banks of Salt Lake, and three wide views of Salt Lake City, one with the Mormon tabernacle (completed in 1871) prominently featured. An attractive collection of views, each quite displayable.

        Tortoises, Terrapins, and Turtles drawn from life. Text by John Edwards Gray.

      - London, Sotheran, Baer & Co., 1872. Folio (365 x 280mm). pp. iv, 16, with 61 lithographed plates, all drawn on stone by Edward Lear after J.D.C. Sowerby. Publisher's pictorial cloth, spine with gilt lettering A very fine copy of the first complete edition of this exquisite and rare work on turtles and tortoises. Four men were responsible for this classic herpetological work, i.e. Thomas Bell as superintendent of the plates and intended author, James de Carle Sowerby as artist, John Edward Gray as writer of the text to the final publication of the plates, and Edward Lear as lithographer. 40 plates first appeared in Bell's 'Monograph Testudinata' (1832-42). This work was never finished due to the publisher's bankruptcy. The 40 plates together with 20 additional, previously unpublished, plates were re-issued in 1872 by Sowerby and Lear.The plates were reproductions of paintings by James de Carle Sowerby, produced by the process of lithography by Edward Lear. Bell was the first person to attempt to write a comprehensive account of the tortoises, and went to great lengths to acquire living tortoises which Sowerby was to draw. The book is the most outstanding collection of tortoise illustrations ever produced.The unsold parts of Bell's 'Monograph of the Testudinata', together with Sowerby's plates for the rest of the work were acquired by the publishers Sotheran, who wished to publish a new edition of the 8 parts, incorporating the remaining plates. As Bell had declined to write the text for the last plates, it was natural that Gray should have been asked to do it. In this way, a complete edition of the book Bell had started in 1832, was finally published 40 years later in 1872. It had a new 16 page introduction by Gray.Edward Lear is best known today for his limerick verses, but he began life as a natural history draughtsman and lithographer and became one of the finest illustrators of birds of all time.Nissen ZBI, 1701; Adler p. 35; Wood 1872.

        ABANDONMENT OF THE WHALERS IN THE ARCTIC OCEAN SEPT. 1871

      New Bedford, Ma., 1872. Light edge wear. Light toning, a bit of foxing on the final two plates. Very good. A scarce, complete set of five lithographs recording the disastrous loss of a large fleet of New Bedford whaleships, trapped in the ice near Point Belcher in September 1871. In all, some thirty-four ships were lost, at a cost of $1.5 million. After passing through Bering Straits in June, the fleet began to be frozen in in August. For a time the captains waited for a northeast wind that might carry them out of the ice. They had a chance to escape the floes in late August, but did not heed the warnings of natives, who claimed the ice would close up again soon. Indeed, a southwest wind on August 29th crushed three of the ships, and the captains decided to abandon their ships and escape south in smaller vessels. The stranded ships were abandoned, and more than 1200 men, women, and children took lifeboats to seven whaleships not caught in the ice which ferried them to Honolulu. The first three plates show the various ships stuck in the ice, giving the name of each vessel in the caption. The fourth print shows the crews escaping in smaller rowboats, and the final one shows the rescue ships "receiving the captains officers and crews of abandoned ships." The illustrations were drawn on stone by J.P. Newell, printed by the lithographic firm of J.H. Bufford in Boston. Peters praises Bufford as being among the very best at producing whaling images. The prints were published by Benjamin Russell in New Bedford, the important whaling port at which the fleet was based. The Lothrop catalogue points out that "all known copies of the prints in this set are marked 'proof,' and it is believed Russell retained this to enhance sales." This event did irreparable damage to the New Bedford whaling fleet and severe damage to the local economy that depended so much on it.

      London, Paris und Frankfurt a.M., Henry Sotheran und Joseph Baer, 1872. Erste (1.) Auflage. First edition. Mit 60 lithographischen Tafeln, IV, 16 Seiten. Kl.-Folio (38cm x 28,5 cm), roter Orig.-Leinenband mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel, etwas Rückenvergoldung und blindgeprägter Deckelverzierung. Nissen ZBI 1701 (unter J. E. Gray); Wood S. 429 (mit falscher Kollation); Adler I, S. 34 - 36; Dance S. 124. - Die wohl berühmteste und schönste Schildkröten-Ikonographie in der gesamten herpetologischen Literatur. Die wundervollen Abbildungen nach Original-Zeichnungen von J. d. C. Sowerby, diese Vorlagen wurden von E. Lear lithographiert, die Lithographien bei Hullmandel in London gedruckt. Ursprünglich dienten sie als Illustrationen zum Werk des britischen Herpetologen Thomas Bell \"A monograph of the Testudinata\" (Nissen ZBI 296), erschienen bei Halembourg in London, welches von 1836-42 in Lieferungen erschien. Leider wurde das letztgenannte Werk nie vollendet, durch den Bankrott des Verlegers erschienen nur 8 Lieferungen mit 40 Tafeln. Die Restbestände sowie die 20 noch nicht publizierten Tafeln wurden von der Londoner Firma Henry Sotheran übernommen. Da sich Bell geweigert hatte, den Text für die noch nicht erschienen Tafeln zu schreiben, entschied sich der neue Verlag dafür, einen komplett neuen Text für alle Tafeln in Auftrag zu geben. Diese Aufgabe übernahm dann John Edward Gray, der damalig Herpetologe des British Museum (N.H.). Obwohl der gesamte Text von Gray stammt, beschloss der Verlag, das Werk nur unter den Namen der beiden Künstler erscheinen zu lassen. Grays Name ist nicht auf dem Titelblatt zu finden, lediglich unter dem Vorwort, welches ebenfalls aus seiner Feder stammt. - Ecken und Kapitale leicht bestoßen, Deckel und Rücken minimal fleckig, Titeblatt mit kleinem Blindstempel, Rückseite sämtlicher Tafeln mit kleinem blassen Bibliotheksstempel, einige Tafeln aufgrund abweichender Papierqualität mit dezenter Brauntönung, nur stellenweise mit wenigen kleinen Braunflecken.

        Tinglingling. - Ausgaben Nr. 1 - 13 (wohl alles erschienene).

      Berlin, "Zu haben im Selbstverlage des Verfassers: A. Queva, Fortepianostimmer, Neue Königstraße 33, Hof gradezu part", Druck von Gustav Schulz, (1872). - 13 Einblattdrucke, beidseitig mit Text. Verso jeweils großer Holzschnitt. Bis zu 32 x 15 cm. Nicht im KVK, für mich bibliographisch nicht fassbar. Julius Rodenberg hat "In deutschen Landen: Skizzen und Ferienreisen" (Leipzig, Brockhaus 1874; SS. 83-93) der Folge satirischer Flugblätter ein kleines literarisches Denkmal gesetzt, das aber auch nur wenig Licht ins Dunkel bringt: Danach ist "Tinglingling" eine bestimmte Melodie, auf der "alle möglichen (und einige unmögliche) Texte" gesungen werden. Der Verfasser der vorliegenden Texte ist nach Rodenberg ein ehemaliger Berliner Zigarrenhändler, in dessen Laden er bereits 1859 Spottgedichte auf Napoleon III. gekauft hätte und den er als "A. Z." bezeichnet. - Die Satiren hier beziehen sich meist auf tanzende Damen im Tingeltangel und ihre männlichen Bewunderer, aber auch auf Bismarck und Berliner Volksleben. Am interessantesten wohl die Nr. 13 "Ansicht der Baracken auf der Schlächterwiese vor dem Kottbusser-Thore", ein Bänkelsang auf die Zustände in dem "Freistaat von Barrackia", einer von tausenden Menschen bewohnten Hüttensiedlung, die als Reaktion auf die erhöhten Mietpreise von den Armen Berlins errichtet wurde. Der Slum wurde von der Berliner Verwaltung kurzfristig geduldet, dann aber 27. 8. 1872 unter Einsatz von 200 bewaffneten Polizisten gewaltsam geräunt - rund einhundert Jahre später etablierte sich fast am gleichen Ort die Kreuzberger Hausbesetzerszene. - Nr. 8 mit kleinerer Läsur am oberen Rand. In einem etwas lädiertem Umschlag d. Zt. mit handschriftl. Titel "Berliner Volks-Moral zur Zeit des Jesuiten-Gesetzes. Sommer 1872". Beiliegt ein "Zum fünften Stiftungsfest 1872" betiteltes Doppelblatt mit 3 weiteren "Tinglingling-Gedichten" von A. Stolz (2) und J. Braun. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ALBUM HISTORICO FOTOGRAFICO DE LA GUERRA DE CUBA DESDE SU PRINCIPIO HASTA EL REINADO DE AMADEO I

      Havana, 1872. Half title. Folio. Original printed wrappers bound into half leather and cloth, spine gilt. Extremities rubbed, front hinge starting. Lower corner of front cover and half title torn away, repaired with tissue. Minor foxing. Very good. Illustrated work on the Ten Years' War, the bloody civil war between Spanish loyalists and rebels fighting for Cuba's independence, with twenty-four photographs by Leopoldo Varela y Suarez, comprised of images of notable citizens and views of Cuba. This is a history produced by the loyalist forces, dominated by the large plantation owners. The ten large albumen views, each with a printed caption on the mount, show various buildings and panoramas of Havana during the Ten Years' War (1868-78), the first of three civil wars of the late 19th century. Of note is the striking image of the "Vista de la Calle del Comercio Despues Del Incendio," showing the devastation brought on by this conflict. Describing the war up to 1872, this book includes views of the Teatro de Tacon y Del Louvre, the impressive Morro Castle, and a handsome composite photograph of the various officers of the First Volunteers of Havana. The photographer, Leopoldo Varela y Suarez, was one of a small group of foreign and Cuban photographers to photograph and publish images of this war.

Der Herausgeber der Sammlung, Henry Thomas Buckle, ist der berühmte Verfasser der "Geschichte der Zivilisation in England". Der Verleger Hotton behauptete auf einem beigegebenen Prospekt, "daß Buckle als Sammler zahlreicher Kuriosa besonders die flagellantische Literatur bevorzugt habe. Aus dieser angeblichen Geheimbibliothek Buckles sollten die in der obigen Kollektion vereinigten 7 Flagellantica stammen. An alledem war kein wahres Wort. Buckle hatte niemals diese Bücher gesammelt oder besessen. Sie stammten vielmehr aus der Bibliothek eines bekannten Londoner Sammlers, wo sie, in der Reihenfolge ihrer späteren Veröffentlichung durch Hotten, in einem Bande zusammengebunden waren. Hotten lieh diesen Band von jenem Bibliophilen und ließ den Nachdruck ohne Wissen und Erlaubnis des Eigentümers herstellen." (Datenschlag Bibliothek Hot 72). Hinterdeckel fachmännisch restauriert. Seiten unbeschnitten. Papierbedingt gedunkelt. Teils leicht fingerfleckig. ---------------------------------- |English description available on request. Traduction française sur demande.|

        London. A Pilgrimage.

      - London: Grant & Co., 1872. Folio, original brown gilt-stamped and lettered morocco, backstrip richly gilt. [xiv], xii, 191 pp. Wood-engraved half-title, frontispiece, & 52 full-page plates, each with captioned tissue guard; and 146 wood-engraved text illustrations and pictorial initials. An ex-library copy, with white tipp-ex on the backstrip and two library bookplates in the front pastedown. First English edition of this great work, preceding the first French edition (with its briefer, less informed text) by four years. This copy is in the deluxe presentation publisher's binding, exceptionally rare thus. The book was conceived in 1868 by Jerrold, an experienced journalist; and author and artist prowled every corner of the metropolis, sometimes accompanied by plainclothes police. . "The theme of this book had been anticipated by Matthew Arnold three years earlier when he wrote of 'London, with its unutterable external hideousness, and with its internal canker of publicé egestas, privatim opulentia - to use the words which Sallust puts into Cato's mouth about Rome, -unequaled in the world' (Culture and Anarchy, London, 1869, p. 31). Doré's devastating realization of the contrast of wealth and poverty in a modern metropolis makes London one of the great illustrated books of the world. The English edition antedates the French by four years (and has 6 more plates), and indeed it is a handsomer book, except for the few copies of the French edition printed on papier de Chine." - Ray. "If one book depicts Dickens' London in all its glory and especially misery, this is it; and it is hard to cite another book of any period which so perfectly defines a time and place in history as this book does." Bland, A History of Book Illustration, pp. 289-90. Ray, Art of the French Illustrated Book, 251. Illustrator and the Book in England 297. Artist and the Book 86. Muir, Victorian Illustrated Books, pp. 225-227. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
