        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.

        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 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)

        Création dun centre mondial de communication par Hendrik Christian Andersen (2 Bände in einem Band), IN FRANZÖSISCHER SPRACHE

      Der Titel in rot-schwarz gedruckt und mit einer Vignette, auf der Rückseite mit einem Widmungsblatt mit einer Heliogravüre (Lichtdruck), mit 25 Heliogravüren (Lichtdrucken) auf Tafeln (9 doppelblattgroß und 5 doppelblattgroß zum Ausklappen), einschließlich der nicht im Inhaltsverzeichnis genannten Tafel:"A World Centre" zu Beginn des 1. 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.

        Report of a Reconnaissance of the Missouri River in 1872

      Government Printing Office, Washington - 56 pages. with 1 plate. 3 tables, 2 folding charts, 2 folding diagrams, 2 folding maps and 3 very large folding maps: Map 1: 46 1/4" in height x 21 1/2" wide. Map 2: 45 1/2" x 21 1/4" Map 3: 48 1/4" x 21 3/4". (Sabin 71925) First edition limited to 250 copies. Thomas Paschall Roberts, the third son of William Milnor Roberts, worked with his father as a civil engineer and enjoyed a lengthy career on his own in the same profession. He grew up in Carlisle, Pennsylvania and attended Dickinson and State colleges, leaving the latter as an undergraduate in 1863 to join his father in Brazil. Following his return to the States in the fall of 1865 he took charge of surveys in Northwestern Pennsylvania for a projected railroad. In 1866 Roberts became principal assistant to his father in charge of the open-channel improvement of the entire Ohio River. From 1870 until 1884 he was engaged on or in charge of numerous railroad and waterway surveys, including the Montana Division of the Northern Pacific Railroad. Also in the early seventies he made a reconnaissance of the upper Missouri River from Fort Benton to the Three Forks, his report and map of which were published by the War Department in 1874. He surveyed the upper Monongahela River in 1875 and the Allegheny River in 1878-9. The latter half of his life was devoted almost entirely to waterway improvements and matters relating to navigation, in which he developed an unusual interest. Roberts was a founding member of the Engineers Society of Western Pennsylvania and maintained a wide interest in scientific, social, and historical topics. He was particularly interested in the causes of the Ice Age in North America and wrote scientific studies on the topic. Part I of this report is comprised of the following: Journal of Trip Up Missouri River From Sioux City to Fort Benton, Montana; General and Comparative Description of Missouri River; The Present and Future Necessity for the Improvement of the Missouri River; Suggestions Concerning Plans for the Improvement of the Navigation of the Upper Portion of the Missouri River; and the Radical Improvement of the Lower or Sandy Portion of the Missouri river. Part II is a supplementary report "Concerning the Exploration of the Upper Missouri River, viz. between Gallatin City, Mont., or the Three Forks of the Missouri, and Fort Benton, including a partial survey and reconnaissance of the Great Falls, which were examined, in case the upper river proved practicable for steamboats, with reference to a route around them for a narrow-gauge railroad." Condition: Corners and edges bumped, some soiling to spine, large folding maps with some tears at joints and almost separated from hinge folds else a very nice copy.

Der Lederrücken und die Lederecken etwas berieben, alter Name am oberen Rand der Titelseite des ersten Bande, sonst sehr gutes Exemplar der deutschen ERSTAUSGABE.Grundlegende Arbeit Charcots für die Neuropathologie, durch die Übersetzung von SIGMUND FREUD auch für die Psychoanalyse. -"Obgleich er nur leitender Arzt an der Salpêtrière war, hat Charcot schon damals freie Vorlesungen gehalten, in denen die Krankheiten des Nervensystems einen großen Raum einnahmen. 1872 wurde er Professor für pathologische Anatomie als Nachfolger seines Freundes Vulpian, der den Lehrstuhl für experimentelle Medizin erhielt. 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."

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.

        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.

        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 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)

      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. (#148811)

        London A Pilgrimage [full Morocco Ct 2 Vols]

      London: Grant & Co.. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1872. First Edition. Hardcover. B&W Illustrations; Jerrold was an English journalist and author. , Gustave Dore - "Paul" Gustave Doré was a French artist, engraver, illustrator and sculptor. Doré worked primarily with wood engraving. Width: 12.25" Height: 15.25", 18lbs. Gilt edges. Deluxe binding. "London: A Pilgrimage," with 180 engravings, was published in 1872. It enjoyed commercial and popular success, but the work was disliked by many contemporary critics. Some of these critics were concerned with the fact that Dore appeared to focus on the poverty that existed in parts of London. Dore was accused by The Art Journal of "inventing rather than copying." "The Westminster Review" claimed that "Dore gives us sketches in which the commonest, the vulgarest external features are set down." The book was a financial success, however, and Dore received commissions from other British publishers. Bound in full red leather, with gilt decoration on the covers and spine. Gilt lettering is stamped on two black spine labels. The exteriors exhibit rubbing and edge wear. Full red leather [morocco]. The text blocks are adorned with gilt edges and marbled endpapers. The front board of the second volume is almost detached. The binding of the first volume is sound. The pages exhibit mild aging and scattered faint smudging. This work is richly illustrated by Dore. 180 ill. Woodcuts. 126 vignettes in the text. His night scenes on the Thames, the people, the teeming Docks and some strange streets are the most impressive. "Dore'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. " Ray. ; 18 .

Mexico: Tip. de la v. e Hijos de Marguia, 1872. 33, [1] pp. Octavo (10-1/2" x 7"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in original printed wrappers. Covers darkened, light soiling and minor edgewear, small ink spot on front wrapper. Light browning, some chipping and foxing, creasing to corners of most leaves. Contemporary annotations to several leaves and two sheets of laid-in notes in Spanish and English. Rare. * Text of the original concession, issued to Antonio D. Richards, Santiago Smith, and Jose Brennan, facing the altered concession issued to General W. S. Rosecrans. "In 1868 President Johnson appointed Rosecrans to be Minister to Mexico. Five months later, President Grant terminated the appointment. His brief diplomatic career convinced him that a prosperous Mexico would need peace, immigration, and railways, and he applied for a concession to build a narrow-gauge railway and telegraph line from Tampico to the Coast. The record of toil and travel, scheming, waiting on rich men and politicians, and of the final collapse of his Mexican dreams, forms a wearying chapter of the frustrating years from 1869 through 1873. Yet he was almost the first, and perhaps the most important, in a long line of Yankee railroad promoters in Mexico.": Lamers, The Edge of Glory: A Biography of General William S. Rosecrans, U.S.A. No copies located on OCLC or KVK. One copy located in the Biblioteca Nacional de Mexico.
