Verne, Jules
London: Sampson Low, Martson, Low, & Searle, 1873. First U.K. edition. Rare first English language edition of Verne's classic work, preceding the American edition and much scarcer than the 1873 Smith or Osgood US printings. Publisher's original red cloth stamped in black and gilt, rebacked with portions of the spine replaced. Original peach end papers with a contemporary gift inscription and Burns Bindery ticket. All page edges gilt. Generally in good condition internally. A young reader has written comments at the end of the book in pencil that could be erased, but we've left them as they are kind of charming. Finaly publisher's catalogue "For the season 1872-73" has six pages, not eight as seen in some other copies. Whether it's lacking the final advertisement leaf or whether it was issued as such, we cannot say. A Very Good copy overall of a very scarce book. A similar copy (also rebacked and in cloth) brought $8,750 at auction (Heritage, 2018). "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea is arguably Verne's masterpiece. As a classic it has aged wonderfully well: it is escapist fun, but it still retains its literary and scientific significance. To dismiss it as simply an adventure story does it a disservice...it is also an eerie tale of isolation and madness, packed full with geographica; and scientific accuracies that make the fantastic uncomfortably believable" (The Guardian). A work of incredible imagination, the novel follows the expedition and capture of Professor Pierre Aronnax as he scours the ocean deeps in search of a mysterious "sea monster" reportedly attacking int … [Click Below for Full Description]

On it's own, this 1st American issue of Verne's "Tour of the World" is valuable. However, it's value is greatly enhanced by other attributes, as you will learn below. This is a major opportunity to acquire a copy of a rare book with unique elements that make it truly "one of a kind." First American edition. Contemporary binding in gorgeous green calf decorated and titled in gilt, ribbed spine, marbled endpapers and all edges gilt, two color title page.

Inscribed by him to the owner of the book, Mrs. Nellie W. Pillsbury, "with the best wishes of her old friend "the finisher" signed and dated Ocober 1952. Which suggests that Zabriskie finished this job two years before his death, at 86 - possibly one of the last books he completed, and maybe that's why he signed it "the finisher" - it may have required considerable time and effort on his part.

The Greenly library consists mostly of her collection of contemporary Regency literature, however it was expanded after her death by various members of her extended family. Notable among these are Edward Greenly, a famous Victorian geologist, and William Bradford, a founding father who travelled to America on the Mayflower and who was closely associated with the Greenlys at Titley Court through marriage. The rich and diverse history of the Greenlys at Titley Court is reflected in the broad selection of works found in the library.

MARZIALS (THEOPHILE-JULES-HENRI or THEO.) [1850-1920].
Henry S. King, London. London: Henry S. King, 1873. First edition. viii,198pp.,(+32pp. publisher's catalogue). §Krishnamurti (Supplement) 21. The author's sole published volume of verse. As a poet, Marzials was poised between the Pre-Raphaelites and the Fin de Siècle (John Betjeman's interest in him - he gave a radio talk on Marzials in 1950, and lent his own copy of 'The Gallery of Pigeons' to the Krishnamurti exhibition - reflecting the latter, in particular). Original dark green cloth, gilt lettering and decoration. Lower fore-edge corners bumped. Discreet repair to head of spine, some general surface marking to covers (spine unaffected). A good copy with the author's ink presentation inscription to the writer Edward Plater to title-page. Later ink ownership name, c.1920, of one Charles Davies facing title. Page 149 bears an additional (third) stanza to an untitled bagatelle (first line: 'The wanton bee that suck'd the rose') in an early pencilled hand that could well be that of the author; certainly the lines are in keeping and of suitable authenticity. The poem is reprinted as originally published in the sole modern edition of Marzials, 'Selected Poems' edited by John M. Munro. Whether in the author's hand or not, the manuscript stanza is almost certainly genuine, and probably previously unrecorded. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Stone, Dennison W.
Dennison "Den" Stone, 1873. A double-sided herald (27 ½ in. x 10 ½ in.) advertising Den Stone's circus on one side and a wild west show on the other side, which took place in Norwich on Friday, June 27, 1873. A herald was a broadside-type advertisement distributed in advance of an appearance of a circus, lacking color and printed on newsprint, in this instance double-sided for display in a double-glazed window frame. One herald usually showed the same content for every town for a particular season, this one being for the 1872-73 season tour, which started in the Spring in Aurora, New York and toured through New England, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, ending its tour in New York City in October 1873, a disasterous year for big wagon American circus shows, due to the Panic of 1873. Den Stone (1824-1892), a famous clown and showman, appeared on this herald and in this performance, as a clown. Stone had the first circus with an Indian/Wild West Act as early as 1855. A native of Burlington, Vermont, he ran away at 14 to join the circus in a horse act and became a clown when he was only 16. The date given for "Central Park Menagerie and Den Stone's Circus is 1872 in Olympians of the Sawdust Circle by William L. Slout, pp. 292-3.) This rare surviving herald underwent a surface cleaning to remove superficial and ground-in dirt, a washing to reduce acidity and some discoloration, buffering with an aqueous solution of calcium hydroxide to deter future acid influx, sizing with gelatin to restore crispness and resilience to the paper, tears and weak areas were reinforced with mulb … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nietzsche
Recently rebound in old, contemporary marbled paper over boards with new spine, lettered in gilt. Internally, bright and clean. A very good copy of one of Nietzsche's early works. Nietzsche Destroys David Strauss... NIETZSCHE, Friederich. Unzeitgemässe Betrachtungen I: David Strauss (Unconventional Observation I: David Strauss). Leipzig: E. W. Fritzsch, 1873. TP + [1]-101 + [102] = advertisements, Octavo. First Edition, First Issue. (Schaberg 23a) The first of Nietzsche's Unconventional Observations was an attack on David Strauss the writer who had made his reputation with his scandalous Life of Jesus in 1835. Here Nietzsche attacks his most recent book The Old and the New Faith, which advocated the rejection of the Christian faith in favor of a Darwinian, materialistic and patriotic world-view. Nietzsche accuses Strauss of being a "Cultural Philistine" and denounces him as an exemplar of pseudo-culture. Although erudite, the essay is extremely intemperate and filled with references to many of Nietzsche's scholarly contemporaries. The climax is a literary tour de force, in which Nietzsche cites a litany of malapropisms from Strauss, interspersed with his own barbed comments. For Nietzsche, Strauss's book was the incarnation of the Zeitgeist: unproductive smugness, intellectual snobbery, superficial assimilation of great works of art and new scientific theories, myopic criticism and patronizing praise of even the greatest genius...But what enraged him most was Strauss's comfortable and untroubled renunciation of Christianity, coupled with an easy conviction that Darwin was o … [Click Below for Full Description]

C. Darveau, Quebec. [204pp]: [ii], xiv, 188; unprinted blocked green cloth; 217 x 145 x 19 mm. Son of a bookbinder, the prolific author (who, in 1843, at 17, had built what may have been the first automobile in North America) became a distinguished architect before his appointment as Superintendent of Public Works for Quebec (1866-98), designing the Music Academy of Quebec, & residential school & main lodge of Laval University, as well as assuming the role of technical supervisor over the construction of the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa (with Thomas Fuller). A founding member of the Royal Society of Canada (1882), Society of Quebec Surveyors (1882), Canadian Society of Civil Engineers (1887), & Association of Architects of Quebec (1890), he designed some 200 buildings & is credited as author of more than 250 books & articles (both in French & in English). His invention of the Stereometrical Tableau ("a system for calculating the volume of all shapes and forms in nature") led to awards, diplomas & prizes from numerous scientific & literary societies around the world. Reviewed by the Railroad Gazette (3 January 1874) as a most "unique" (ie, entertaining) engineering report, the present volume includes a section on street beggars, as well as the author's characteristically candid comparison of his paltry salary ($2800) with that of the far better-paid Surveyor of Montreal ($13,900). Its general focus however remains completed & contemplated city improvements, waterworks & markets (to May 1873), together with various inventories, tables, statements & accounts ranging from the … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition of the major work by the prominent Russian explorer of Central Asia, Nikolai Severtsov (1827-1885), who was described by another famous traveller to Central Asia P. Semenov- Tyan-Shansky as "one of the first Russian travellers who engaged in survey of the interesting, colossal mountainous land of Tian-Shan, one of the pioneers of geographical research in the countries previously unknown and for many centuries not opening themselves to scientific investigations." The book includes accounts of three of Severtsov's travels. During the expedition Severtsov was wounded and captured by the armed group from the khanate of Kokand and freed only thanks to a personal involvement of the commander of Russian border guards General Dansas. Two other expeditions were dedicated to the Tian- Shan Mountains: to their northern part in 1864 and to the surroundings of Lake Issyk Kul in 1865, with many areas not visited by a European before.
