        The Martyrdom of Man

      London: Trübner & Co., 1872. 8vo. viii, 544 pages. Publisher's original green cloth tooled and titled in gilt to spine. Ownership inscription to front endpaper. Small spot to front board, minor shelf wear and foxing to final leafs, otherwise in very good and original condition, bright, clean, with solid spine. A pleasing, exceedingly scarce volume. Both viscerally contested and exuberantly applauded, immediately upon publication, and for years to follow, this revolutionary and once radical book is seldom seen today, yet is replete with subjects still pertinent, these being the role of Islam, the history of the slave trade, the evolution of mankind, as well as the impact of war, religion, and liberty. Reade's work became reputed as a sort of "substitute bible for secularists," attempting to trace the development of Western civilization in terms analogous to those used in the natural sciences, also presenting philosophies in support of political liberalism and social Darwinism. The secular "universal" history of the Western world, is divided into four chapters titled as follows. "War" discusses the imprisonment of men's bodies, "Religion" that of their minds, "Liberty" likens a history of European politics and intellect, and finally, "Intellect" puts forth a theory on the origin and development of the universe. The concluding chapter provoked enormous controversy, and as such, the book was condemned by several magazines, owing to Reade's "outspoken attack on Christian dogma". Immediately after its release, in 1872 William Gladstone, the former British Prime Minister, denounced the work as one of several "irreligious works" which also included works by Auguste Comte, Herbert Spencer, and David Friedrich Strauss. On the other hand, the book "drew attention to the immense tale of suffering and waste involved in the theory of evolution". V. S. Pritchett lauded The Martyrdom of Man as "the one, the outstanding, dramatic, imaginative historical picture of life, to be inspired by Victorian science". Since Reade had, by Victorian standards, a relatively sympathetic account of African history, the book was also approvingly cited by W. E. B. Du Bois in his books The Negro (1915) and The World and Africa (1947). English-born South African politician and businessman, Cecil Rhodes said that the book "made me what I am". Other admirers included H. G. Wells, Sir Winston Churchill, Harry Johnston, George Orwell, Susan Isaacs, A. A. Milne and his son Christopher Robin, and Michael Foot. In "The Sign of the Four" Holmes describes it as "one of the most remarkable books ever penned". . First Edition. Very Good.

Cohnheim, a pupil of Virchow, was one of the foremost pathologists of the 19th century.

        The Poetical Works

      73 - London - Routledge, 1872 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A really nice set of works by Bret Harte. Seven volumes bound in half leather with marble paper-covered boards. Bret Harte (1836-1902), American novelist and poet. He wrote tales of pioneering life in gold rush towns in California, as well as more serious verse. When receiving the news that Dickens had died, Harte wrote a heartfelt tribute, Dickens in Camp, which appeared in the Overland Monthly, a magazine he had strong editorial involvement with. Although very popular in the 1870's and 1880's, Harte's popularity dwindled. Twain would comment thathis writing was insincere. Harte lived much of his later life in Europe and is buried in Surrey. The Fool of Five Forks and Wan Lee are bound together in one volume, as are Thankful Blossom and My Friend the Tramp. The Luck of Roaring Camp has an introduction and glossaryby Tom Hood. Condition: The bindings aretight and firm with the boards and all internal pages securely attached. There is some wear to the extremities includingbumping to the corners, rubbing, fadingandmarks to the leather andboards. The author title labels are present, but the volume titles are lacking. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright withthe occasionalbrown spotorhandling mark. The overallcondition of these volumesis very good..

        The Cruise of the Freak. A Narrative of a Visit to the Islands in Bass and Banks Straits with some Account of the Islands

      Launceston: J.S.V Turner, 1872. Octavo, folding frontispiece map, eight plates and four leaves of parochial Launceston advertisements bound at the rear; recently rebound in buckram retaining part of the original publisher's cloth. Aboriginal Mission settlements in Bass Strait. Scarce and informative book containing much information on Aboriginal Mission to the islands north of Tasmania.Marcus Blake Brownrigg (1835-1890) was an Anglican minister who worked for much of his life in Tasmania, earning praise for his ministry to the poor. 'One of Brownrigg's chief interests was the Mission to the Half-Caste on the Islands of Bass Straits, which in fourteen years he visited thirteen times. Among his published records of these trips was The Cruise of the Freak (1872), illustrated by him on stone for lithograph; with the profits from his writings he bought books for the islanders' (ADB).The Freak was a cutter of some nine tons, used by Brownrigg during his many forays into the Bass Strait. Ferguson's notes that 'apart from its historical value this book is a curious specimen of early colonial printing. Some interesting particulars are given of the Aborigines and G. A. Robinson's work among them'. Brownrigg was an artist of some skill, and also a student of homeopathy, which he used to remedy the ills of his poorer parishionersThis copy was inscribed by the author in his later years R.H.D. White (dated Launceston October 1880). Brownrigg passed away a decade later from lingering bronchitis contracted while sailing on the Bass Strait.

        ARABESQUES: MONARE. DOMITIA. APOLLYONA. OMBRA

      Boston: Roberts Brothers,. 1872. Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1-3] 4-213 [214: blank] [215-216: ads] [note: first leaf is a blank; fly leaves precede first blank and follow page (216)], four illustrations in the text,. original chocolate-brown cloth, spine panel stamped in silver.. Small water strike on front panel, some even dust soiling to spine. panel, a very good, tight copy. Very scarce. (#20277). First edition. This book also exists in a more elaborate decorative binding, but one that is prone to bubbling of the cloth. An under- appreciated gem, richly ornamented with supernatural motifs, anticipating the revival of medievalism by William Morris. "Literary fables after the manner of the German Romantics, with a melange of Classical, Medieval and Oriental motifs, well-blended. First adventure 'Monare' probably influenced by Fouque's THE MAGIC RING; in one episode young knight slays evil de Maupre, brigand and werewolf, gathers blood in silver flagon to raise his victims from the dead. Other adventures involve witchcraft, visit to the Underworld (a la Tannhauser), magical charms, and a doppelganger." - Robert Knowlton. "Well-sustained, imaginative; among the best late 19th century fantasies." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 714. The last tale, "Ombra," involves a variation of the blood motif found in the first. A doppelganger of the hero is magically created, animated by his blood and sent out in front of the hero to draw the enemy. The doppelganger is slain but this allows the hero, in disguise, to enter and wreak his rightful vengeance. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 96. Bleiler (1978), p. 86. Reginald 06336. Wright (II) 1025.

        The Eustace Diamonds [True First Edition in Exceedingly Scarce Original Wrappers]

      New York: Harper Collins, 1872. First American edition. Hardcover. Very Good. An about Very Good copy of the first American edition -- also being the true first edition preceding the UK first edition, in the Publisher's EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE ORIGINAL WRAPPERS (spine cracked but mostly present, front wrapper modestly stained, binding askew, tide marks to the front wrapper and a few following pages, some pencil notes to each of the front and rear free endpapers, some pushing to some page corners); the third novel in Trollope's famed Palliser series which tells the tale of the adventuress Lizzy Greystock who Gerould describes as "the very beautiful, superficially clever and completely selfish daughter of an admiral who was no credit whatever to the British Navy". Lizzy Greystock beguiles the wealthy Sir Florian Eustace, traps him in marriage just prior to his death, and thereby comes into possession of a very expensive diamond necklace which she alleges to have been a gift to her from Sir Florian and which his family claims to be a non-tranferrable family heirloom. Published both in wrappers and in hardcover, this American edition is the true first edition, published in October, 1872. (The UK edition was not published until December of that year.) Copies in hardcover are seen reasonably often, but copies still in their original wrappers, as is this copy, are, as Smith states: "extremely scarce". We know of only one copy outside of a library or institution. An about Very Good copy of the TRUE FIRST EDITION of this major Trollope novel, PUBLISHED PRIOR TO THE UK FIRST, and an important book for the Trollope collector to have. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE.
