        zahn [Binding, Fine- Otto Zahn at the Toof Bindery] Poems

      Basil Montagu Pickering, London 1873 - Attractively bound by Otto Zahn at S.C. Toof & Co., featuring Zahn's signature "mirror finish," an unusually smooth finish over the fine morocco leather. Full light green crushed morocc, raised bands, gilt dentelles. Both covers with innovative art nouveau design of arching vines, leaves, and flowers. Limited to 500 copies, but suppressed by the author, with most of the copies being destroyed (McKay). 126 pp. 8vo. Floral endpapers and laid in note from one of the original buyers to the recipient of the volume. With a fascinating two-page ALS laid in, by the presenter of this volume to the owner describing Zahn and his bindery: "May 11, 1899, My dear Mr. Babcock: You may remember that last Sunday I spoke to you of a bookbinder in Memphis named Zahn. I have happened to find a sample of his work and shall be glad if you will let me present it to you- and for calling attention especially to this binding. I do not mean to depreciate the poems, which are pleasing enough- Very Sincerely, Wilhelm Maydens. Samuel W. Babcock, Esq." Not much is known about Otto Zahn, though he is now considered one of the finest bookbinders in American early 20th Century bookbinding. Zahn arrived in this country in 1883 and settled in Memphis, TN, where he found employment at S. C. Toof and Co., which had an accomplished bookbinding presence. Zahn soon became a leading bookbinder, opening his own shop, The Zahn Bindery in Memphis. His bindings are finely crafted with a highly accomplished mechanics and attractive, intricate tooling. One feature of his bindings is that the books could invariably be placed on their spines and opened expansively without weakening the hinges or the spine. All edges gilt. Sunning to spine and around the edges of the covers (more sunning on back cover than front). Zahn bindings are scarce [Attributes: First Edition]

      Paris: Librairie Germer Baillière, 1873. First edition. 8vo., x, 299, 48 pp., 117 figures in text. An occasional spot of foxing and mild toning. Publisher's deep cranberry/plum colored cloth, decorated and titled in gilt on the upper board with emblem in gilt on the rear board, rebacked in complimentary cordovan morocco with title label in gilt. A later owner's name is neatly stamped on the recto of the front free endpaper. Signed and presented, "Monsieur Le professeur Gavaret, hommage affection, E. Marey." A very good copy. Marey's interest in the biomechanics of locomotion was codified and measured through the use of his ingenious mechanisms, both mechanical and photographic, which are detailed in this volume. The practical implications of these studies had profound affects on aviation, biophysics, and the advent of cinematography. Chapter four deals with the paces of the horse and explains Marey's methods of research. It was one of Marey's published attitudes of the horse which led Gov. Leland Stanford of California to commission Muybridge to do his epoch-making work of the movement of the horse. Marey has presented this volume to Louis Denis Jules Gavarret (1794 - 1894) a French physician and proponent of statistical analysis, and pioneer in the field of biophysics. It was Professor Gavarret who was the principal examiner for Marey's defense of his thesis for his medical doctorate, "Research on Blood Circulation in the Physiological State and in Diseases."

        Patinage á roulette, roller skating - Jack Abeillé.

      Gewassen tekening met waterverf, kleurkrijt en dekwit op velijnpapier door Jack Abeill? (1873 Varenne-Saint-Hilaire), getiteld ?Salade de Saison / Le sport de la mode: Voulez-vous ruiker (?) mademoiselle??? Gesigneerd en gedateerd (19)09 rechtonder. Formaat ca. 32,5 x 24 cm.Deze tekening komt uit de verzameling van Charlotte von Prybram-Gladona.Charlotte, habitu?e van de Beau Monde, werd in 1910 geboren te M?nchen en trouwde op vierentwintigjarige leeftijd met de Weense edelman Albin von Prybram-Gladona. De echtelieden ontmoetten elkaar tijdens de danslessen die Albin, twintig jaar ouder dan Charlotte, nam om fit te blijven (!). Zijn familie onderhield nauwe banden met Einstein, Schweitzer, Rilke en Thomas Mann, terwijl hij Johannes Brahms kende als 'Onkel Jo'.Toen Charlotte en Albin vlak voor het uitbreken van de Tweede Wereldoorlog verhuisden naar Parijs, verkochten zij noodgedwongen het leeuwendeel van hun meubelcollectie. Dat stelde hen echter wel in staat zich over te geven aan hun passie voor tekeningen, die beduidend minder plaats innamen. Het echtpaar keerde in 1969 terug naar Oostenrijk en vestigde zich in Salzburg. Albin overleed vijf jaar later, terwijl Charlotte er de hoge leeftijd van 92 bereikte.Prijs: ?600,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

      1873. Good. KAWAMURA Teizan. BANKOKU TSU^SHIN O^RAI. To^kyo^, O^saka, etc., Meiji 6 [1873]. Bound Japanese-style, fukuro-toji in the original covers with the remains of the original printed title label. The first few pages are printed in color woodblock, illustrating the treaty ports of the time, including Nagasaki, Ko^be, Yokohama, etc. There are many sumi-e illustrations that follow, following the familiar format of the kashiragaki kinmo-zui style of illustrated encyclopedia that began in Japan in the 17th century. Here the format embraces all things foreign - the top of the page has the illustartions, the captions below. There are ships, products for import, the desired goods for trade, etc. - all very practical. The covers are worn, the title label abraded, but the contents are quite good. By no means a common book. Interesting as an historical document of early Meiji and an excellent example of the renaissance of woodblock printing at the time.

      - (AS SAUDADES DA TERRA) pelo Doutor Gaspar Fructuoso. Manuscripto do Seculo XVI annotado por Alvaro Rodrigues de Azevedo Bacharel, formado em Direito pela Universidade de Coimbra, Professor de Oratoria, Poetica e Litteratura no Lyceu Nacional do Funchal, e Advogado na ilha da Madeira. Typ. Funchalense. Funchal. 1873. In 4º (de 25x18 cm) com xi, 920 págs. Encadernação da época inteira de pele marroquim castanho, com nervos na lombada, ferros a ouro rolados nas seixas da encadernação e gravado a ouro na pasta anterior com um super-libris armoriado do Conde de Almarjão (armas de Pereira, Leite, Costa e Silva). Ilustrado com uma litografia em extratexto representado um retrato a meio corpo de João Gonçalves Zarco, assinada lith. Palhares e com as armas da cidade do Funchal ao centro da folha de rosto. Exemplar preserva a capa de anterior brochura; e apresenta 2 saltos na paginação 146»151 e 218»223 com falta do respectivo texto, no entanto não apresenta vestígios da presença destas folhas neste exemplar, e sua existência efectiva terá de ser comprovada pela confrontação de outros exemplares. Rara 1ª edição impressa (da parte II referente à Madeira) com a transcrição do manuscrito quinhentista. A obra foi começada a ser composta na Tipografia Funchalense em meados de 1870, e a sua impressão foi terminada em Abril de 1873. Trata-se do primeiro livro que ultrapassou no dobro do tamanho os livros que até esta data se podiam imprimir na Madeira, porque 'os tipografos só estavam afeitos a descurado labor na imprensa jornalistica' (vide pag. X). O prefaciador, trancritor e anotador é Álvaro Rodrigues de Azevedo, o mesmo colector do Romanceiro do Archipelaggo da Madeira, publicado posteriormente no Funchal, em 1880. A primeira parte das Saudades da Terra a ser integralmente impressa e comentada foi este Livro II, em 1873. Além do texto de Gaspar Frutuoso o qual termina na página 310, seguem-se trinta notas de Álvaro Rodrigues de Azevedo, um Glossário de Palavras, Frases e Ortografia obsoleta ou antiquada que se encontram no texto e notas, um índice dos diplomas e documentos, um Indice Histórico dos Povoadores e Familias Madeirenses e uma errata nas 2 últimas páginas, que termina com um anúncio para a venda do próprio manuscrito das Saudades da Terra. Segundo o anotador e prefaciador deparou-se-lhe uma cópia de Saudades da Terra. No entanto, para publicar a obra completa, seria necessário uma empresa impossível naquela época. Faltavam no Funchal o tempo e os meios para a impressão de um manuscrito com duas mil páginas. Resolveram portanto dar ao prelo somente a parte das Saudades da Terra concernentes ao arquipélago da Madeira, isto é o Livro II das mesmas. O manuscrito tratava-se de um apócrifo de outro manuscrito trazido dos Açores por André de Ponte do Quental quando veio para a Madeira casar com Carlota de Bettencourt e Freitas. E, conferindo a cópia com a História Insulana de Cordeiro, que se baseia em Frutuoso, o anotador conferiu que se tratava realmente de um texto de Gaspar Frutuoso. Segundo Álvaro Rodrigues de Azevedo a obra de Cordeiro é um mero resumo metódico da obra de Frutuoso no que respeita à Madeira (vide pag. VI). As Saudades da Terra minuciam pessoas, factos e coisas que não se encontram na História Insulana. Cordeiro dedica à Madeira e Porto Santo 26 páginas e Frutoso dedica dez vezes mais. A História Insulana foi compilada mais de cem anos depois das Saudades da Terra que foram compostas cerca de 1590. Contudo, Rodrigues de Azevedo diz-nos no prefácio (pag. VII) que as Saudades da Terra não são perfeitas. Os vários volumes são desiguais no estilo e esta parte 'presumimo-las obra de outra pena, que não a de Frutuoso. A dicção, por vezes expressiva e ingénua, é, em regra, irregular e difusa' (vide pag. VII). Outro aspecto salientado é que o Doutor Gaspar Frutuoso nunca esteve na Madeira tal como se vê na sua biografia na História Insulana. Frutoso escreveu as Saudades da Terra na Ilha de São Miguel, nos Açores, em 1590,

        An Investigation of the Orbit of Uranus with General Tables of its Motion

      1873 - VII, (1) et 288 pages Washington, Smithsonian Institution, 1873, in-4, VII, (1) et 288 pages, demi-toile verte de l'éditeur, Première édition. Newcomb, après avoir publié son calcul de l'orbite de Neptune en 1866 (découverte seulement 20 ans plus tôt, en 1846, par Le Verrier), se décida en 1867 à recalculer celle d'Uranus puisque la planète nouvellement découverte exerçait une action sur Uranus et rendait caduque tous les almanachs astronomiques antérieurs. Ainsi, avec le présent travail Newcomb propose une discussion des précédents calculs de l'orbite d'Uranus, une représentation de son mouvement au sein du système solaire, mais aussi et surtout une table générale des ses positions depuis le début de l'ère chrétienne jusqu'en 2300. Intérieur propre, grand de marges. Cartonnage sali et abîmé. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
