      - Cat. de la bibliothèque du Chateau de Mouchy (1872), item 2461 (this copy). First editions of the first 14 volumes of the officially authorized publications of the manuscripts of the French Bibliothèque du Roi and it successors, with commentaries and notes by leading French authorities, such as Antoine Isaac, Baron Silvestre de Sacy (1758-1838), the leading orientalist of his day, for the many Arabic manuscripts and several other non-Latin manuscripts. Louis-Mathieu Langlès (1763-1824), Armans-Pierre Caussin de Perceval (1795-1871) and others also made important contributions. Many volumes begin with the "oriental" manuscripts (those in non-Latin scripts) in a separate part. In one folding plate (showing an Arabic text) many vowel points and some letters have been rendered in outline and hand-coloured in red, apparently to show where the editor has filled out the original. These were important pioneering studies of Arabic and other non-European texts and also serve to display the materials of the printing office, which had one of the world's largest collections of matrices for non-Latin types. Many of the types were cut exclusively for the printing office and Napoleon confiscated others from the Propaganda Fide in Rome soon after he declared himself King of Italy in 1805. With the bookplates of the Bibliothèque de Mouchy and Bibliothèque du Château de Mouchy-Noailles. The former is probably from Charles-Arthur-Tristan Languedoc de Noailles (1771-1834), Duc de Mouchy, and/or his younger brother Antonin (1777-1846), who succeeded him as Duke. With a few water stains in the first leaves of vol. 1, but generally in very good condition. The bindings of several volumes are slightly tattered, but most are in good condition. A remarkable and important set of scholarly editions of manuscripts, especially strong in Arabic and other non-Latin manuscripts.

Signed on several dozen pages as examined by Captain Richard Worsam Meade and signed by Calhoun in several places. Folio (12 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches). Original sheep reinforced with calf.

Some scuffing to boards, mostly minor toning and spotting to tipped-in maps, some fading to photographs and to text in spots, but overall excellent condition. In a custom navy half morocco slipcase and chemise. With 5 manuscript maps (one large folding), 7 albumen photographs, and numerous ink views. 359, [36] pp in purple brown ink. Signed on several dozen pages as examined by Captain Richard Worsam Meade and signed by Calhoun in several places. Folio (12 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches). South Pacific cruise and the beginning of Western-Samoan diplomacy. An outstanding, extensively illustrated logbook of the diplomatic and research expedition undertaken by the U.S.S. Narragansett to the South Pacific in 1870-73. Kept by midshipman George A. Calhoun (1849-1897), the logbook covers the period December 1871-September 1872, during which time the Narragansett visited several island groups in the South Pacific, including the Hawaiian, Samoan, Phoenix, Marshall, and other island chains. In addition to providing crucial surveying information, the expedition marked the beginning of diplomatic negotiations between the Samoan Island and neighboring chains and the three great foreign powers competing for influence in the region-- the United States, Germany, and Great Britain. The logbook also records an encounter with the notorious American pirate "Bully" Hayes. The journal begins with the Narragansett at anchor in Honolulu on December 24, 1871 and ends with the ship at sea between Ebon Atoll and the Duff Islands on September 6th. In between is a daily record, dutifully kept by Calhoun, of the weather, sailing conditions, ship movements, onboard activity, court marshals, etc. Commanded by Richard Worsam Meade III (1837-1897), the Narragansett originally set out from Sandy Hook, New York, to the Pacific on March 21, 1871 and completed its journey on April 2, 1873, when it arrived at Panama, having spent 419 days at sea covering 52,073 miles. The log is signed in numerous places by Captain Meade as "examined and approved," and at the end of the journal he adds: "This journal has been excellently kept in every respect and I commend Mid[shipma]n Calhoun very highly. Richard W. Meade, Comdr." The achievement of the Narragansett with perhaps the longest lasting ramifications was Commander Meade's signing of a treaty of "friendship and protection" with Chief Maunga of Pago Pago, island of Tutuila, Samoan islands, granting the United States exclusive rights to build a naval station in Pago Pago harbor. Several entries in the logbook record activity almost certainly related to negotiations of the treaty, which was signed on February 17, 1872. The entry for February 15, for example, notes: "One of the principal native chiefs came on board to pay his respects to the Commanding officers." This chief would have been Maunga, of whom a photograph with his wife and child, taken by one of the expedition's members, is tipped-in to the log across from the entry. On February 18--the same day Meade arrested Bully Hayes--the log notes: "American Consul paid an official visit to the ship," which by now was in the neighboring port of Apia. The next day the log records that, "English Consul paid an official visit to the ship" and later that same day, "German Consul paid an official visit to the ship." Undoubtedly the newly signed treaty--which gave an immense advantage to the United States over its chief rivals--was discussed on all three occasions; shortly after, the German Consul sent a letter of protest to Chief Maunga. Though Meade's treaty would eventually die in the United States Senate, it laid the foundation for later, successful treaties which established an American presence in the region which lasts to this day. "The diplomacy connected with the [Samoan] islands may be considered to have begun in the year 1872, when Commander R.W. Meade of the U.S.S. 'Narragansett,' anchored at Pago-Pago, on the island of Tutuila, and on his own initiative concluded with the native chief of the bay an agreement by which the exclusive privilege of establishing a naval station in the harbor of Pago-Pago was granted to the United States" (Keim, Forty Years of German-American Political Relations, pp 114-115). Among the numerous illustrations in the logbook are drawings of the ship itself; a number of manuscript maps and plans; a series of inked views of islands made from aboard ship; and a group of photographs of islanders encountered by the crew. Among those in the first category is a magnificent ink drawing of the ship, with the American flag and pennant colored in red and blue, 12 x 16 ½ inches; and highly detailed pen and ink plans of the berth deck and of the ship's hold, each 11 ¾ inches (300 mm) in length. The maps include the Hawaiian Islands, 4 1/2 x 7 3/8 inches, labeling nine islands and including the names of dozens of towns and villages, as well as an inset enlargement of the islands of Lehua, Kauai, Niihau, and Kaula; on the same sheet appears a highly detailed plan of Honolulu harbor, 7 1/4 x 4 7/8 inches. Several manuscript maps on tracing linen have been tipped-in as well, including "Apia ... Island of Opulu, Samoan Group," 8 3/4 x 7 ½; a folding "Plan of Leone Bay, Tutuila Samoan Group," 13 1/2 x 15 1/2 inches; and a large folding plan of "Pango Pango, Tutuila Samoan Group" approximately 14 ½ x 21 inches. Also present is a large folding map at front, "Track Chart, Cruise of the U.S.S. Narragansett from Oct 17th 1870 to April 4th '73. Original chart drawn by Midn. George A. Calhoun U.S.N.," being a contemporary reproduction, "photographed at Lima Peru Feb 1873." The original ink views sketched by Calhoun comprise: "Morotoi Island. Northern End"; "Diamond Point"; and "Oahu Island," on pages 17, 18, and 19, respectively; as well as a group of 18 views across two tipped-in sheets, recto and verso, including: the passage between Aunuu and Tutuila, Cape Matutula, Cockscomb Point, West Cape, Pyramid Rock, Sail Rock, Upolo, Tutuila, the entrance to Pago Pago, Sail Rock Point, Apia, Ofu, Tau, Phoenix Island, and others. A compelling group of photographs taken by the ship's assistant surgeon, H.C. Eckstein, have been tipped-in to several places as well: "Maunga, chief of Pango Pango, wife and child," 4 1/2 x 3 inches; "War Dance," Samoan Islanders, 4 1/2 x 3 inches; "Pango Pango Harbor. Tutuila I. Samoan Group," 3 x 3 inches; "View in Apaiang Island. Gilbert Group," showing a group of islanders, a canoe and a thatched hut, 4 3/4 x 3 1/4 inches; and "View in Ebon Island. Marshall Group," 4 3/4 x 2 7/8 inches. Also present is a 5 1/2 x 4 inch portrait portrait photograph of George A. Calhoun, mounted to board and loosely inserted, being a leaf detached from Calhoun's Naval Academy album, with a portrait of a classmate on the verso on the verso. Inserted in several places between the daily log entries are several four-page descriptive pieces by Calhoun on: Honolulu (page 16), "Naval Etiquette in a Foreign Port" (50), Apia (86), Pago Pago (88), the Phoenix Islands (122), Baker and Howland Islands (132), "Essay on Deviation Tables" (208), and several islands in the Gilbert (299) and Marshall groups (317). These essays cover navigational points, local trade, and more. The essay on Honolulu notes, for example, that the port "serves principally as a station for the U.S. Mail Steamers plying between Australia and San Francisco, and a depot for the seaports from the surrounding islands. The harbor at Honolulu which is capable of holding two-hundred vessels is formed by an indentation of the coast, and entirely surrounded with the exception of a channel, by coral reefs, some of which are visible at low tide ... There are no facilities for docking, there is only a small ship yard capable of building vessels of about 100 tons ... The want of a dock of sufficient size to hold large vessels is severely felt and building one is spoken of by business men of Honolulu ... Excellent water delivery on board from water boats at the cost of 1 cent per gallon. Provisions and fruits are quite cheap and of good quality, meat at 8 cents and vegetables at 5 c per lbs." etc. On Apia: "The firm of Gottfried and Co. of Hamburg do an extensive business in copra and cocoanut oil and all the German vessels in port belonged to them. One American, two English and six German vessels were in the harbor during our stay." On the village of Leone, on the island of Tutuila: "Leone is the largest and principal village on Tutuila and the chief of this district seems to be held in respect by the other chiefs, the houses are more commodious and better built than those in the villages at Pago Pago and the natives seem more intellectual and robust." At the front of the log are several pages of charts documenting the ship's dimensions, provisions, and costs; a meteorological table; and a tipped-in abstract of the cruise listing ports sailed from and anchored at, number of days spent at sea and in port, and total distances sailed for the entire journey, October 1870-April 1873. One of the more notable departures from the typical activities of the Narragansett is recorded on February 18, 1872, when Commander Meade seizes the ship of and arrests the notorious South Seas swindler, blackbirder, and pirate William Henry "Bully" Hayes (1829?-1877): "Sent an armed boat which boarded and took temporary possession of the American Brig 'Leonora,' late English brig 'Pioneer' Captain W.H. Hayes. Capt. Hayes was brought on board and detained on suspicion of having been engaged in unlawful acts in the Micronesian and other islands." Hayes, who had been operating nefariously in the South Seas since at least the early 1850s, had lately taken possession of the "Leonora" from his business partner under suspicious circumstances, and it was on these grounds that Meade made the arrest. However, none of Hayes' men could be induced to provide evidence against him, and on February 21 Calhoun reports: "The investigation in the case of the Brig 'Leonora' having been completed Captain Hayes was allowed to resume command of her".

        Modern Turkey.

      London: Hurst and Blackett, Publishers,, 1872. Octavo (220 × 132 mm). Original red-brown cloth, gilt-lettered spine, sides decoratively panel-stamped in blind, yellow surface-paper endpapers. Spine darkened and a little marked, a few pale spots to fore edge, half-title lightly foxed, and discreetly tape-repaired at foot, shallow chip to top edge of front free endpaper, contents otherwise clean, a very good copy. Second edition, the same year as the first, of this valuable survey of Turkey in the mid-19th century, including a wide-ranging economic overview, and accounts of Empress Eugénie's visit to Constantinople and the health benefits of living in Syria. Both editions are uncommon, especially in good condition, and there appear to have been no further printings after 1872. Farley (1823–1855) helped establish the Beirut branch of the British-run Ottoman Bank, established after the conclusion of the Crimean War. "In 1860 [he] was appointed accountant-general of the state bank of Turkey at Constantinople, which subsequently became merged in the Imperial Ottoman Bank, which was set up in 1863 with British, French, and Ottoman shareholders and directors, under the protection of the sultan and his government. It was the government bank with sole rights of note issue. British and French government involvement was also considerable, and the bank was a political as much as a financial institution" (ODNB). He was notably on intimate terms with Fuad and Ali pashas. From 1870 to 1884 he served as Ottoman consul at Bristol, in which capacity he is credited on the title page, and made substantial (though not overly successful) attempts at increasing Bristol's trade with the Levant.

Oblong 8vo (6 x 8 inches0. A very early and well-written analysis by an amateur historian*, shortly afer the cessation of hostilities.The author begins: "It is but a few months since Europe saw the end of a struggle of which history affords so example. There have been fiercer battles fought, larger territories involved in the conflict, but never was there witnessed a more futile pretext for war, blind imprudence in the aggressor, or more consummate generalship & complete success on the opposite side ."*Possibly by an American, given references to Abraham Lincoln, the American Revolution, "the freest nation in the world", etc). A good candidatate might possibly be Henry Percy Litchfield (see OCLC 10644238), of Long Island, whose papers are in George Washington U with the Litchfield family papers, and whose privately printed book THE FRANCO-GERMAN WAR OF 1870 (Gracehill, Brooklyn, L.I., 1872) was among the earliest studies of the war. 104 numbered leaves; written in in on folded sheets, with text on right-hand side, notes and corrections on left.

Quarter contemporary cloth and marbled boards, minor bumping and scuffing to corners, spine and edges rubbed, else fine. Bookplate of Jacob Gross laid in. 44 pp. pen and ink with watercolor details on title page and bookplate. Oblong 8vo, bookplate 5.5 x 3.5 inches, title page 7.5 x 4.5 inches. BUCKS COUNTY FRAKTUR. A lovely example of a bygone folk art by one of its last masters. Fraktur or illuminated writing was a religious art seldom applied to secular themes. This highly elaborate form of folk art was practiced by Pennsylvania Germans mainly between 1740 and 1860, and was taught to school children in the German language. Mennonites were the most notable fraktur artists and the main geographical area for fraktur art was Bucks County, PA. Among the notable types of fraktur work were these small, plain songbooks with illuminated title pages giving the owners name and school. In 1872, Mennonite schoolmaster, Jacob W. Gross (1807-1900) of New Britain, known as the "Swirl Artist," was one of the last surviving masters of fraktur, which saw its demise with the advancement of the public school system. Hannah Shaddinger was born September 19, 1858 to Henry Shaddinger and Mary Fretz. She married John Ziegenfuss Loux and had two children. She died in Mechanicsville, PA on February 13, 1937.

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 bevel-edged green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold and black, t.e.g., brown coated endpapers. First edition. The more elaborate of two bindings, priority, if any, not known. "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. Spine ends and corner tips rubbed, a bright, nearly fine copy. A superior copy of a scarce book that does not age gracefully. (#151844)

Teils, mit 123 Heliogravüren (Lichtdrucken) im Text (9 ganzseitig), einschließlich der nicht im Inhaltsverzeichnis genannten von Athene, Apollo und Herakles, [6], xv, 128 (unpaginiert), 102 Seiten, 32x45, grünes illustriertes und goldgeprägtes O Ln, Schönes, im Einband frisches und festes unbeschnittenes Exemplar dieses seltenen und sehr gesuchten Titels, lediglich innen teilweise braunfleckig. Erste französische Ausgabe von Andersens Vision einer utopischen Weltstadt. FIRST FRENCH EDITION OF ANDERSENS VISION OF A UTOPIAN WORLD CITY. Hendrik Christian Andersen (1872 - 1940) was a Norwegian-American sculptor, painter and urban planner. He was born in Bergen, Norway, and emigrated as an infant with his family to Newport, Rhode Island. As a young artist, he mingled among Newports wealthy elite, and spent some time as Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitneys art teacher. At the age of 21, Andersen travelled to Europe, eventually settling in Rome. There he pursued his artistic interest in monumental classically inspired pieces, believing that they stimulated in the viewer a desire for self-improvement. He devoted much of his time designing a perfect World City, filled with art, which would motivate humanity to achieve a near Utopian state. His urban planning philosophy is evident in his 1913 "A World Center of Communication". This enormous tome (the text weighed over ten pounds) was written with Ernest Hébrard and grew out of Andersens earlier writing, "The Fountain of Life". Central to the work was Andersens belief that art, more specifically monumental Beaux-Arts architecture, could bring about world peace and international harmony. The plan called for the creation of a central world capital. In his words, the city would be "a fountain of overflowing knowledge to be fed by the whole world of human endeavour in art, science, religion, commerce, industry, and law and in turn to diffuse throughout the whole of humanity as though it were one grand, divine body conceived by God, the vital requirements which would renew its strength, protect its rights, and enable it to attain greater heights through a concentration of world effort.Evident in the treatise is Andersens philosophy that art could change humanity and produce perfection. While roundly criticized by urban planners of the time for its political naïveté coupled with an over emphasis on the monumental, the work demonstrates an appreciation of the political and social conflicts necessitated by the rampant nationalism of the early 20th Century and sought to use art to bring about an Utopian world. Andersens view of the power of art and architecture to transform society can be seen as a precursor to similar concepts advanced later in the 20th Century by a variety of urban planners including Le Corbusier in his Contemporary City.In 1899 Andersen met Henry James the American expatriate writer. Although James was almost 30 years his senior the two developed a close relationship that was to last until James death in 1916. While the precise nature of the relationship is still unclear and may always be sothe two actually met on just a few occasions, and then for only brief periods of timethey exchanged numerous letters, which evidence a close, loving, homoerotic bond. Despite such affection, James lost patience with Andersen when the sculptor tried to interest him in the grandiose plans for the "World City". James warned Andersen that he was slipping into megalomania with his plans for the "World City". Andersen bequeathed his home, studio, papers and more than 400 pieces of his work to the Italian Government. The home in Rome has been renovated and now is the museum Museo Hendrik Christian Andersen located at Via Pasquale Stanislao Mancini, 20 (piazzale Flaminio).The book is in two parts. The first deals with the history of the city and monumental architecture, and seeks inspiration in classical and contemporary notions of city planning - Paris and Washington DC feature prominently. The second part details Andersens imaginary urban landscape, complete with works of art, for the World City. Olympic stadia, galleries for the arts and sciences, as well as government buildings are all outlined, and placed upon a defined grid plan with an emphasis on a grand central avenue acting as the axis of the city.

Er setzte aber seinen klinischen Unterricht an der Salpêtrière fort. 1882 wurde auf Anregung von Gambetta ein klinischer Lehrstuhl für die Nervenkrankheiten für ihn geschaffen. Damit wurde der Unterricht in der Neurologie zum erstenmal in der Geschichte der Medizin von dem in den anderen Fachgebieten abgetrennt. Der Unterricht Charcots war besonders glänzend und hat eine große Menge von Ärzten aus Frankreich und anderen Ländern an die Salpêtrière gezogen. Mehrere Neurologen, die später selbst bedeutende Lehrer wurden, waren seine Schüler an der Salpêtrière. Neben der Hauptvorlesung am Freitag Vormittag, in der er die stationären Kranken vorstellte, führte er auch die 'Dienstagsvorlesungen' ein, in denen er den Studenten die Kranken vorstellte, die am gleichen Tage in die Poliklinik (Consultation externe) gekommen waren."
