John Wisden
Hi, This lot is an 1873 Wisden , Rebound with the original covers bound within. This rebind is in yellowy boards with gilt to spine, it is complete and the covers are very nice, the book is in super condition, the only thing to point out is that there is some foxing to the outer pages, this looks worse on the pictures but they show it off. Tiny amount of tape to the front cover corner. 10th edition - with covers! [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Leather binding with Gold gilt embossed image on cover. Boards becoming detached and spine missing. However the contents are complete, clean and bright with some minor edge soiling, overall unobtrusive to images and in very good condition for the 144 years age. Very rare work on Scandinavian Mammals. VERY RARE COMPLETE COPY! ATLAS OFVER SKANDINAVIENS DAGGDJUR by W. MEVES Early Rare Mammal Work! Stockholm, Sweden. 1873. 4to. Hardcover leather binding with gold gilt embossed lettering and image of rabbit on cover. Binding boards are in good shape but spine is lost, covers with edge chipping. Needs rebinding. This volume is complete and very rare thus. It has all 22 hand colored plates and the associated text block and the 4 page text block and 4 black and white plates of skulls comprising some 96 figures. Few plates have minor edge soiling, but unobtrusive to main image. A complete unbroken set is extremely rare to find as the interior decorators often break this Atlas up for the outstanding bear, moose, wolf and bat plates. The plates command high dollar if sold individually. I will not break this volume and hope the end buyer doesn't as well. I have only seen one copy offered complete in the past 22 years (been dealing rare natural history for 30). Time now to pass it on to the next fine book collector. From my personal collection. Price includes insurance. From my personal collection. We will be listing lots of Natural History books over the next few months and have over 10,000 titles and 100,000 off-prints, many rare and hard to find.

A valuable feature of this work is the Indian Receipts, given by Miss Barber, for the cure of various diseases. They are very efficacious."

Philip St Cooke
Manuscript letter dated to May 12th, 1873 from General Philip St. George Cooke to General Theo. F. Rodenbaugh. Letter has 4pp of script. It is framed on one leaf of paper with top edge gilt, which looks to have been cut from a book. With script on both sides of the letter, the paper frame is like a window, so that both sides are visible. Letter in frame measures 7" x 9 -3/4". Letter is in very good condition with moderate bleeding from an opposite page on first leaf, last leaf has light soiling and shows evidence of where letter was once folded. Manuscript is somewhat difficult to read but only because of the author's handwriting, not condition of the letter. In the Civil War Philip St. George Cooke was a Brig. General for the Union, participating in the Virginia Peninsular Campaign including the Siege of Yorktown, the Battle of Williamsburg, the Battle of Gaines Mill and the Battle of Glendale. Earlier in his career he fought in the Black Hawk War and the Mexican War, and nearing retirement, when he wrote this letter, he commanded the army's Department of the Lakes. General Theo. F. Rodenbaugh was also a cavalryman, a captain for the Second U. S. Cavalry of the Union Army. Rodenbaugh authored and edited many titles on military history. In this letter Cooke writes Rodenbaugh concerning dates and information likely for one of Rodenbaugh's books. Cooke references military reports from his career, including the march to Utah in 1857, a march from Lawrence to Fort Riley, the Battle of Blue Water, and mentions his book "Scenes and Adventures in the Army" (1857).

HUGO (Victor)
HUGO (Victor). Lettre autographe signée « Victor H. » à Paul Meurice (qui sera son exécuteur testamentaire). Une page sur un bifeuillet de dimensions 12 × 9,5 cm. « 31 janvier [1873]. H.H [Hauteville House, demeure du poète à Guernesey] Cher Meurice, si le théâtre pouvait donner à Madame Judith Mendès une baignoire, elle ferait à Marion l’honneur d’y assister. Je vous recommande ma belle spectatrice. à vous, profondément Victor H. » Lettre remarquable puisqu’elle évoque Judith Gautier (qui avait épousé Catulle Mendès), ce qui n’est pas courant. Le poète avait fait sa cour l’année précédente à la fille de l’homme au gilet rouge de la première d’« Hernani » en lui récitant des vers de « L’Année terrible » (nous possédons l’exemplaire de l’édition originale portant un envoi à Judith Gautier, nous contacter), cinq ans après avoir reçu d’elle un exemplaire du « Livre de jade » portant un envoi en chinois (nous possédons également cet exemplaire, et ce n’est pas une coïncidence, nous contacter), et avant d’en devenir vraisemblablement l’amant (on ne rappelle pas les magnifiques poèmes que Judith Gautier a inspirés à Hugo, dont l'un des très rares sonnets qu'il ait jamais composés).

MIVART, St George Jackson
1873 1ed Mivart Man & Apes DARWIN EVOLUTION Zoology Illustrated Gorilla Catholic A first edition account of George Mivart’s reaction to Darwinian naturalism. George Mivart was a 19th-century English biologist known for his attempts to merge the beliefs of Darwinian evolution and the Catholic Church – curiously, he was condemned by everyone! Mivart held views that were contrary to other scientists, including his view on the language of animals – he states: “Since we are unable to converse with brutes, we can but divine and infer from their gestures, motions, and the sounds they emit, what may be the nature of their highest psychical powers.” Mivart discounted many of Darwin’s own studies including his “hasty attribution of human qualities to brutes, on account of certain superficial resemblances.” (Radick, p.69). According to Cooper and Hull, “Mivart describes primates, including humans, as being ‘unguiculate, claviculate, placental mammals, with orbits encircled by bone; three kinds of teeth, at least at one time of life; brain always with a posterior lobe and calcarine fissure ” Item number: #5231 Price: $750 MIVART, St George Jackson Man and apes an exposition of structural resemblances and differences bearing upon questions of affinity and origin.

ABEILLÉ, JACK
?Salade de Saison / Le sport ? la mode? Gewassen tekening met waterverf, kleurkrijt en dekwit door Jack Abeill? (1873 -?). Gesigneerd en gedateerd (19)09 rechtsonder. Afm. ca. 32,5 x 24 cm. In 1863 introduceerde de Amerikaan James Leonard Plimpton?een rolschaats waarbij twee houten wieltjes voor en twee houten wieltjes achter met een rubberen veerconstructie waren bevestigd. In tegenstelling tot eerdere in-line rolschaatsen kon je er mooie boogjes mee maken. In 1873 bracht een Duitse firma rolschaatsen op de markt met harde rubberen wielen en voorzien van een hefboom voor het vastzetten van de schoen. Perfectionering van de rolschaats vond plaats in 1884 toen er kogellagers in de wielen werden gezet en vanaf 1890 zijn er rolschaatsen waarvan de lengte kon worden ingesteld. Na de uitvinding van Plimpton werden overal rolschaatsbanen gebouwd. Het werd een ware rage, een sociale ontmoetingsplaats waar soms duizenden rolschaatsers actief waren. Op de openingsavond van The Chicago Coliseum waren er meer dan 7000 mensen. Het rolschaatsen blijft een geliefde vrijetijdsbesteding tot aan de Eerste Wereld oorlog. Na de oorlog zorgt de opkomst van de film, dancings en de automobiel ervoor dat het rolschaatsen uit beeld verdwijnt. Maar tijdens de Depressie van de jaren 1930 wordt het rolschaatsen weer populair, het is een relatief goedkope vrijetijdsbesteding waarmee de ellende van de tijd even kan worden vergeten. 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 vierentwintigja … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nine engraved charts on one map sheet, detailing anchorages at Safaja Island, Akik Seghir, Mersa Halaib, Mersa Sheikh Ibrahim, Sherm Dumeigh, Hodeida Road, Approaches to Ras El Askar, Farisan I., and Eid Road, including tidal information, compass roses, soundings, seabed notations, currents, sandbanks, shoals, lighthouses and beacons, inland elevations, detailing and buildings. Detailed chart of the harbours and anchorages in the Red Sea. When the Suez Canal opened in 1869, the Red Sea began to experience a significant increase in the traffic, especially from the British shipping plying their trade between England and the India. The chart must have greatly aided their passage with its detailed depiction of nine safe harbours and archorages. The British Hydrographic Office was founded in 1795 by George III, who appointed Alexander Dalrymple as the first Hydrographer to the Admiralty. The first charts were produced in 1800. Unlike the U. S. Coast Survey the Hydrographic Office was given permission to sell charts to the public and they produced a great number of sea charts covering every corner of the globe. Most of the Admiralty charts produced by the Hydrographic Office delineated coastline as well as high and low water marks and record depth of water as established by soundings. In addition these charts included information on shoals, reefs, and other navigational hazards that plagued mariners a … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Restauré sous l'utilisation du portefeuille originale.) Thieme/B.XXVIII,520. Vollständiges Exemplar!! Exemplaire complet!! Seltenes Werk zur profanen mittelalterlichen Baukunst von Militär- und Zivilgebäuden. Aus dem Vorwort: "Trotz der Vorurteile, die einige gegenüber dem Mittelalter pflegen, ist es unmöglich, die glorreichen Erinnerungen aus der Toscana des XII und XIV Jahrhunderts zu verkennen." "Religiöse Bauten haben keinen Platz in unserer Arbeit gefunden, da die Häuser Gottes, aus der Sicht der Geschichte, kein archäologisches Interesse wecken. Sie alle scheinen einer gewissen Unveränderlichkeit zu unterliegen. Um die Unterschiede in der Kunst, der Industrie und den Bräuchen herauszufinden, die das XIII vom XIV Jahrhundert trennt, muss man die Militär- und Zivilgebäude betrachten." (Aus dem Frz.). Dargestellt sind aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven (d.h. Grundrisszeichnungen, Pläne, Detailzeichnungen, Gesamtbetrachtungen) u.a. "Palais (et Loge) de la Seigneurie a Florence", "Palais du Podestat a Florence", "Table des Planches", "Marché aux Grains a Florence" und viele weitere. Außerdem noch Gebäude aus Pistoia, Pise, Lucques, Sienne, San Gimignano, Volterra, Prato, Vico Pisano u.w. Alle "Kapitel" werden mit einem kurzen Text eingeleitet.

Er lebte mit seiner Fau zuerst in der Levante und Vorderasien und unternahm zahlreiche Expeditionen.

Er erhielt daraufhin eine Anstellung als Naturforscher bei der Britischen Ostindien-Kompanie. 1837/1838 besegelte er die Küsten Indiens und Burmas und 1840 trat er die Reise auf die Andamanen an. Dort versuchte er Kontakt zu den Ureinwohnern zu knüpfen. Diese Versuche scheiterten und er wurde dort von einem Einwohner schließlich durch einen Giftpfeil getötet. Seine Gattin verfasste diese Schriften. - Mit dem seltenen Anhangsband de erst 4 Jahre später erschien.
