         John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1874 - 1874 Original Front Wrapper Incredibly Rare

      1874. On offer here is an 1874 Wisden that has it's original front wrapper together with a facsimile spine and rear wrapper. After the 1875 and 1864 and perhaps the 1869, 1874 is the rarest of all Wisden and I think only one has been offered for sale on Wisden Auction before. This copy retains it's original front wrapper but as will be seen from the photograph it has areas of darkening and discolouration and the bottom right hand corner has been restored. The first few pages also have areas of discolouration but in my view these do not detract from the book itself. The discolouration lessens so that by the time you reach page 11 there is no trace. The remaining contents are complete, original and in very nice condition. The last page has the remains of a sellotape mark to it. The spine and facsimile rear cover have been very sympathetically done and are in fine condition. Overall this is a very presentable copy of a very rare book. If a prospective purchaser would prefer I could have the book rebound by Scriveners Bookbinders in Buxton, Derbyshire who do a fabulous job of rebinding Wisden in a variety leather and cloth bindings. Don't hesitate to ask for details.

         Volume containing 10 titles demonstrating Walras's developing theories of economic equilibrium.]

      Various places: Various publishers, 1874–91 - 10 works bound in 1 volume, octavo. Later green cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, yellow endpapers, edges uncut. Manuscript contents leaf pasted to front free endpaper verso in black and red ink plus several section division leaves in manuscript. Spine rolled, ends bumped with some short snags at head, extremities lightly rubbed, hinges gently cracked but firm, a few nicks to upper edge of first leaf, half-title a little loose, some pamphlets evenly browned, overall a very good volume. From the library of the Royal Statistical Society of London, with a label to front pastedown and their stamps occasionally to contents, with a few neat pencil annotations to the text. Manuscript list of contents in ink to front free endpaper verso. A collection of Walras's essays, including the first edition of Théorie de la monnaie and the first separate editions of his articles on bimetallism and price variation, from the years of his "second phase of theoretical activity, his period of high creativity and maximum theoretical prolificacy" (Walker, p. 9), when he was in the process of developing his initial comprehensive model of general equilibrium that would eventually appear in the first edition of Éléments, and his later period of maturity during the 1880s and 1890s, when he "significantly extended, refined, and altered his system, particularly in regard to capital, money, and equilibrating mechanisms, and composed numerous essays on applied and normative economics" (The New Palgrave IV, p. 854). Several of these articles, written after Walras's appointment as professor of political economy at the University of Lausanne in 1871, were first delivered to the Vaudois Society of National Science in Lausanne (and then printed in their Bulletin), and others were published in the Journal des Économistes as well as in publications of various other societies. This volume has a pertinent mathematical provenance, having been bound together for the Royal Statistical Society of London who, in the late 19th century, were acquiring material for their library which was deemed to have made a valuable contribution to statistical and economic science. A note at the foot of the manuscript list of contents erads "N.B. Nos 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 9, & 10 of the above form the book called Théorie mathématique de la richesse sociale."

Original offprint, retaining the original pagination, with the erroneous title page statement (it actually appeared in volume XIV).

         [Volume containing 10 titles demonstrating Walras's developing theories of economic equilibrium.]

      Various places: Various publishers, , 1874–91. 10 works bound in 1 volume, octavo. Later green cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, yellow endpapers, edges uncut. Manuscript contents leaf pasted to front free endpaper verso in black and red ink plus several section division leaves in manuscript. From the library of the Royal Statistical Society of London, with a label to front pastedown and their stamps occasionally to contents, with a few neat pencil annotations to the text. Manuscript list of contents in ink to front free endpaper verso. Spine rolled, ends bumped with some short snags at head, extremities lightly rubbed, hinges gently cracked but firm, a few nicks to upper edge of first leaf, half-title a little loose, some pamphlets evenly browned, overall a very good volume. A collection of Walras's essays, including the first edition of Théorie de la monnaie and the first separate editions of his articles on bimetallism and price variation, from the years of his "second phase of theoretical activity, his period of high creativity and maximum theoretical prolificacy" (Walker, p. 9), when he was in the process of developing his initial comprehensive model of general equilibrium that would eventually appear in the first edition of Éléments, and his later period of maturity during the 1880s and 1890s, when he "significantly extended, refined, and altered his system, particularly in regard to capital, money, and equilibrating mechanisms, and composed numerous essays on applied and normative economics" (The New Palgrave IV, p. 854). Several of these articles, written after Walras's appointment as professor of political economy at the University of Lausanne in 1871, were first delivered to the Vaudois Society of National Science in Lausanne (and then printed in their Bulletin), and others were published in the Journal des Économistes as well as in publications of various other societies.

         [India]

      [1860s-70s].. Oblong folio, measuring 33 x 45 cm. Contemporary brown half morocco over matching cloth boards, spine with raised bands, gilt rules. 52 original photographs mounted on card, mostly on rectos only, all captioned beneath the image in ink in the same early hand. 8 of the photographs, including a folding panorama, relate to Cape Town, the other 44 are of various Indian subjects - many topographical plus a few portraits. Some scuffing to the binding, occasional spotting, mostly to the mounts, very good overall. 22 of the Indian photos bear the blindstamp of the "Frith Series", another 12 are signed and numbered in the negative by Samuel Bourne. The first photo in the album "Parbutty [Parvati] near Poona" is most likely by Bourne's successor Colin Murray, but has also been attributed to Bourne by others. The subjects of the photos are mostly northern Indian - images in and around Lahore, Srinagar, Simla, Kullu and Delhi are featured as well as a particularly striking photograph of the Golden Temple of Amritsar. However, the album also ventures further south with images of Gwalior, Fatehpur Sikri, Lucknow and Varanasi plus the aforementioned photo of Pune and two photographs of Bombay (featuring the Harbour and the Town Hall). Four of the photographs are of people: an interesting shot of the "Inhabitants of Chumba" (Bourne 553), a "A Yâk Spiti" (Frith) plus two group shots of soldiers from Royal Horse Artillery dated 1874 and 1876. Of the R.H.A. photos the first show the sergeants of A & C Batteries, the second the "Chesnut [sic] Troop" (the alternate name of A Battery) in parade ground formation.

         NEWTON'S PRINCIPIA, THE MATHEMATICAL PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL PHILOSOPHY, By SIR ISAAC NEWTON ; Translated into English By Andrew Motte. TO WHICH IS ADDED NEWTON'S SYSTEM OF THE WORLD ; With a Portrait Taken from the Bust in the Royal Observatory of Greenwich. First American Edition, Carefully Revised and Corrected, With a Life of the Author, By N. W. Chittenden, M. A. , & c

      New York: Daniel Adee, 176 Fulton Street [1874]. Later printing. 4, v-vii, [1-blank], [9]-581 pages. 8vo. Original green cloth with salmon endpapers. Gilt titles and spine decoration head and tail.Fraying to head of spine panel, with top 1 3/4 inches of front joint cloth wearing through. Front hinge paper cracked. Rear hinge sound. A few signatures starting to come loose, partially separating from the stitching. Still a fundamentally sound copy noting a few dings to the board edges. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Sir Isaac Newton. Corner tips turned with minor wear, minor shelf wear overall.Previous owner's name on front pastedown endpaper. Cloth. Although the title page notes "First American Edition" and the copyright page is dated 1846, this is a later printing, published circa 1874 based on lack of portrait subscription or date, 176 Fulton Street address and lack of title page date (see Wallis & Wallis 27.2, Cohen #3). The First American edition was first published in 1848 (NOT 1846) and first editions are routinely mis-identified based on the copyright page information. The work was reprinted for many years from the same stereotype, issues differing only by date (or absence of date), publisher, publisher's address, and portrait subscription (or lack thereof). In 1970 scholar and historian I.B.Cohen in ''The American editions of Newton's Principia'' (Wallis 62.472) provided a much needed guide which updated Babson and Gray's work on this title.Cohen's work was updated by and subsequently incorporated into Wallis's "Newton and Newtoniana 1672-1975, A Bibliography" by Peter and Ruth Wallis (See 26, 27.2, 62.472). See also Babson 23; Gray 26 both referring to the first American Edition. As is often the case with American cloth bindings from this period, this work is hard to find in nice condition, and this example exhibits the usual wear to the binding. Good.
