CARROLL, Lewis] DODGSON, Charles Lutwidge
Oxford: James Parker and Co, 1874. First collected edition. Publisher's green cloth titled in gilt to the upper cover. Issued with the collective title page and contents leaf. Author's presentation copy, inscribed on the front pastedown, "H. A. Barclay with the Author's sincere regards Ap. 27 1875". Two later notes of provenance are written on the free endpaper. All edges gilt. A near fine copy, with a little wear to the spine ends, else clean and bright. A rare collection of Dodgson's famous 'Oxford Squibs', good natured satires, usually of a local political nature disguised in the sort of 'nonsense' writing popularised in the author's fiction writings. The first section, The New Method of Evaluation as Applied to , for instance is not part of Dodgson's noted work on number theory, but a comment on religion within the Oxford University with such reasoning as, "let H=High Church, and L=Low Church, then the geometric mean = HL: call this 'B' (Broad Church). . . HL=B2" The other parts comprise, The Dynamics of a Particle; Facts, Figures, and Fancies; The New Belfry, of Christ Church Oxford; The Vision of the Three T's; The Black Cheque, A Fable. The pamphlets were published individually between 1865 and 1874 and collected here for the first time. Presentation copies are rare with only two others offered at auction in the last forty years. The recipient of this copy, the Reverend Henry Alexander Barclay, was a life-long friend of Dodgson's, having been at Christ Church with him, and Dodgson would often visit him in Brighton during the summer.

BARBEY D'AUREVILLY (Jules)
Paris, E. Dentu (Orléans, impr. de G. Jacob), 1874. In-12 (115 x 180 mm), demi-maroquin acajou à grands coins soulignés de doubles filets à froid, dos à 5 nerfs orné de compartiments garnis d'un décor d'encadrement à froid, titre doré, daté en pied, tête dorée (reliure Semet & Plumelle), (1) f. de faux-titre, viii, [7-], 354 p., (1) f. de table, exemplaire non rogné. Edition originale de premier tirage pour laquelle il n'a pas été tiré de grands papiers. Dès sa publication en novembre 1874, ce recueil de six nouvelles fut saisi et Barbey poursuivi en justice. La police se rendit chez l'éditeur Dentu afin de saisir les exemplaires et l’auteur comparut sous l’inculpation "d'outrage à la morale publique et aux bonnes mœurs". Âgé de soixante-six ans en cette année 1874, Barbey, qui avait déjà été emprisonné à plusieurs reprises, ne trouva plus de soutien. Ce fut finalement grâce à l'intervention de Gambetta qu’il négocia un non-lieu avec les autorités en échange du retrait du livre. Il fallut attendre 1882 pour que ‘Les Diaboliques’ soit réédité par Alphonse Lemerre et enfin diffusé. (Carteret, 'Epoque romantique', I, 110-112: "Fort rare et recherché". Drujon, ‘Ouvrages condamnés’, p. 124. En Français dans le texte, n°300. Vicaire, I, 305). Très bon exemplaire, très frais, très bien relié par Semet et Plumelle, non rogné, grand de marges.

The map covers Oliver Street to Montgomery street and from Division to the East River. John Bute Holmes, City Surveyor. 21" x 40". Hand-colored. Linen-backed and pink silk sewn edging. Only six institutional copies can be found; New York Public Library, the New-York Historical Society, Princeton University, the New York State Library, Harvard, and The British Library. PLEASE CLICK ON THE PHOTOS TO ENLARGE. The Rutgers Farm The Rutgers Farm, which occupied the entirety of this map, was purchased by Marmanus Rutgers in 1728. The Rutgers family had been brewers in the Dutch colony of Nieuw Nederland for five generations, which was a valuable commodity due to the polluted municipal water supply. Later, the farm was broken up into smaller parcels for inheritances and eventually sold off as individual lots. Although it is now hard to believe, Manhattan, as recently as the early 19th century, was largely covered in open farmland. As the city rapidly developed during the 19th century, all hints of its previous bucolic state fell away. In the 1860s, this transformation became a fascination for City Surveyor John Bute Holmes.

Antonio Fontanesi (Reggio Emilia 1818 - Torino 1882)
1874. Acquaforte misure: mm 115 x 155 Pittore e incisore italiano. Si forma presso la scuola comunale di Belle arti di Reggio Emilia sotto la guida del professore Prospero Minghetti, che lo spinse a specializzarsi in scenografie, decorazioni e nella pittura ad affresco. Nel 1874 si trasferisce a Torino alla ricerca di un clima più aperto rispetto a quello della sua città natale, ma si arruola come volontario e prende parte alla I guerra d'Indipendenza. Per fuggire dalla crudeltà della guerra si rifugia prima a Lugano e poi a Ginevra fino al 1865. In questo clima decisamente più sereno l'artista da sfogo alla sua creatività ed entra in contatto con alcuni pittori svizzeri che lo indirizzano verso la pittura di paesaggio e lo invitano ad aprirsi alle novità europee. Molto importanti e significativi sono, da questo punto di vista, i viaggi a Parigi, qui conosce Corot e i pittori della Scuola di Barbizon, e a Londra dove osserva e studia le opere di Turner e di Constable e vi si stabilisce dal 1866. Il suo stile, caratterizzato da un segno nervoso e tormentato, fa si che nei quadri troviamo una forte capacità evocativa, malinconica e romantica. Egli studia la realtà naturale per cercare un motivo più profondo e per ritrovare i sentimenti dell'animo umano. Come in pittura anche nei disegni e soprattutto nelle acqueforti egli ricerca i valori atmosferici attraverso sintetici contrasti chiaroscurali. L'opera intitolata Il becchime può essere considerata una variante di altre due opere dell'artista: Giannina e il suo pollame e La Colazione, in entrambe il soggetto rappresentato è … [Click Below for Full Description]

Phantasmion A Fairy Tale - Sara Coleridge - Henry S. King 1874 - Signed!. Dispatched with Royal Mail Signed For® 2nd Class. A very good copy. Publisher's advertisements at rear, dated February 1874. Second edition of the long fairy-tale Phantasmion, "one of the earliest novel-length fantasies separate from the Gothic tradition" (Sanders), and the first appearance of the work with the author's name printed on the title page: it was first published anonymously in 1837 in a run of just 250 copies. Phantasmion has been described not only as an important precursor to The Lord of the Rings, but also by science-fiction aficionados as an early and influential example of that genre. The work, modelled on Spenser's Faerie Queene, is a prose epic set in a fantastical Lake District, where Sara Coleridge, the only daughter Samuel Taylor Coleridge, had grown up in the household of her uncle Robert Southey. It is a strong candidate for the first modern fantasy novel, preceding George MacDonald's Phantastes (1858) by two decades. This copy has been re-bound in leather and has an inscription from Lord Coleridge as a gift copy to his godson adding a wonderful piece of history to the already fabulous item. Please ask if you have any questions.

Paysage de bord de mer aux deux personnages féminins. Lavis d'encre grise, aquarelle et gouache en dendrite.Encadrement de baguette dorée présentant quelques éclats.Bel exemple de dendrite de George Sand. C'est à la fin de sa vie, à partir de 1874, que George Sand se passionne pour une technique de création plastique différente de celles de l'aquarelle pure ou du dessin traditionnel qu'elle pratiquait depuis l'enfance: la dendrite. Elle mêle d'abord des éclats de pierres cristallines broyées à de la gouache ou de l'aquarelle, puis son fils "Maurice écrase entre deux cartons de bristol des couleurs à l'aquarelle. Cet écrasement produit des nervures parfois curieuses. Mon imagination aidant, j'y vois des bois, des forêts ou des lacs, et j'accentue ces formes vagues produites par le hasard".

1874. Condition: Bon état. Livre en bon état, légères marques d'usure sur la couverture, voir photos. MangasiaPar Paul GRAVETT. Une approche sérieuse et complète de l'art de la bande dessinée asiatique à travers ses différents thèmes du premier manga publié en 1874 jusqu'à aujourd'hui. Plus de 100 ans de créativité dans la bande dessinée et l'animation asiatique commentée dans ce splendide ouvrage, unique en son genre. Des artistes originaires du Japon, de la Chine, de Taïwan, de la Corée du Sud comme de la Corée du Nord, de Thaïlande, de Malaisie, d'Indonésie, du Cambodge, du Sri Lanka, des Philippines, du Vietnam, de l'Inde, du Pakistan, et du Bangladesh sont réunis dans cet album qui présente tous les genres, toutes les thématiques et toutes les techniques asiatiques. Des repères chronologiques, des cartes, viennent compléter cette histoire de la bande dessinée asiatique et aident à bien comprendre l'évolution du manga et les différentes traditions dont il est issu. Paul Gravett, mondialement reconnu comme grand connaisseur du genre, explique clairement, avec de nombreux exemples à l'appui, l'évolution des interprétations des différents mythes et légendes que les auteurs de mangas ont repris pendant plus d'un siècle. Il revient sur la forte créativité qui a marqué la fin des années 40 (juste après la Seconde Guerre mondiale) avec l'émergence d'artistes comme Osamu Tezuka et son célèbre manga Astro Boy. Sa technique visuelle très dynamique a été par la suite maintes fois copiée. Il aborde aussi la partie plus adulte, plus obscure du manga, qui parle de sexualité sans tabo … [Click Below for Full Description]
