        AMERICAN NOTES FOR GENERAL CIRCULATION And PICTURES FROM ITALY

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1874. A very handsomely bound and illustrated edition of the two travel works published together. With eight original engraved illustrations on plates by Marcus Stone, four in each of the two titles. 8vo, in fine three-quarter scarlet crushed morocco over red cloth-covered boards, the spine with raised bands ruled in blind, two compartments gilt lettered, page edges marbled, back and corner-pieces ruled in blind. viii, 506 pp. A very handsome volume, the fine binding essentially perfect and apparently near as mint and unopened, the prelims only with the lightest trace of mild spotting, otherwise the text clean and near pristine. AN ATTRACTIVE COMBINED EDITION OF DICKENS? TWO POPULAR TRAVEL NARRATIVES. AMERICAN NOTES is Dickens? rendering of his journeys in the United States. He went as far West as St. Louis and describes the people and characteristics of many of the cities and towns along the way, including Boston, Philadelphia, New York and Cincinnati. PICTURES FROM ITALY is a beautiful reminiscence of a tour through Italy as it could only be told by one of England?s greatest writers. Dickens provides for the armchair traveler a descriptive journey through some of the most scenic areas and cities in Italy and France. Dickens? poetic and descriptive style, made famous in his many novels, is well suited to these two travel logs.

        From the Earth to the Moon.

      New York: Scribner, Armstrong & Company, 1874. First American edition. Octavo, original publisher's terra-cotta cloth pictorially stamped in gilt and black over bevelled boards. Illustrated with 80 wood-engraved plates. The verso of title page advertises a single Verne title, A Journey to the Centre of the Earth priced at $2.00. First hardcover (and first combined) American edition. In near fine condition, with light rubbing to the foot and crown, with the spine gilt bright. Originally published as De la Terre a la Lune in French in 1865 and translated by Louis Mercier and Eleanor E. King. A very nice example. Jules Verne is widely held as "one of the two founding fathers of science fiction--the other being H.G. Wells" (Clute & Nicholls, 1275). Written almost a century before the flights of the astronauts, Jules Verne's prophetic novel of man's race to the stars is a classic adventure tale enlivened by broad satire and scientific acumen. From the Earth to the Moon is "the first interplanetary novel to focus on the technical and organizational preparations for the voyage, using the actual blast-off as a climax, introducing thereby a new narrative realism... And a Trip Around It continues the story by describing the experiences of the intrepid voyagers as they observe the Moon en passant before a slingshot effect hurls them earthward again. The couplet is one of the definitive foundation stones of the science fiction genre" (Barron:II:1180).

        Around The World In Eighty Days.

      Boston: James R. Osgood and Company. 1874, 1874. Second illustrated US edition after the stultifyingly scarce withdrawn 1873 issue with all the flakey spine problems. 8vo. Publisher's green cloth gilt, lavishly embossed and aggressively bevelled, every Verne first bar one or two seemingly having been designed to serve back up use as either a bludgeoning weapon or some sort of makeshift armour. Scuffed to extremities, cloth worn to corners and with some fraying and softening to spine ends. Solid, strong and bright, lacking all the normal wobbling and splaying that occurs in books where the boards are made of wrought iron and the weight of gilt alone would sink your average submarine. Internally clean and fresh, with some staining to the prelims, including a pale splodge to the upper edge of the title page. Brown endpapers, some small chipping to the edge of the flyleaf. A thoroughly respectable copy, perhaps a touch threadbare in places but entirely capable of a few more balloon trips. Illustrated throughout as if French engravers had just been decided extra needy and been made the recipients of some sort of enormous government subsidy, page after page of illustration. There's no adventure that doesn't have its feet somewhere in Verne, and this one is probably second only to 20,000 Leagues for sheer staying power and continuous appeal. A very good copy.

      Boston: William F. Gill and Company, 1874 - Octavo, pp. [1-2] 3-5 [6] 7-285 [286: blank], fly leaf at front, five inserted plates, original pictorial terra cotta cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black and gold, slate coated endpapers. First U.S. edition? Collects "A Drama in Mid-Air" (a.k.a. "A Drama in the Air"), "Dr. Ox's Hobby" (a.k.a. "Dr. Ox's Experiment"), "Master Zachary" (a.k.a. "Master Zacharius") and "A Winter Among the Ice-Fields (a.k.a. "A Winter Amid the Ice") by Verne, and "Fortieth French Ascent of Mont Blanc" by Paul Verne. Apparently the only edition with English translation by A. L. Alger. This edition, mostly likely unauthorized, may have preceded the "authorized" 1874 Osgood edition published as DR. OX'S EXPERIMENT AND OTHER STORIES. The Gill edition was advertised as "now ready" on 11 July 1874. The Osgood edition, with contents translated by George M. Towle, was published in late June or early July 1874. Both American editions preceded Sampson Low's British edition which was published in November 1874.

        Das \"Va Banque!\" Louis Napoleons III. oder Der Kampf mit Deutschlands Erbfeind. Gedenkbuch des Krieges mit Frankreich im Jahre 1870. Dem deutschen Volke gewidmet.

      Dresden (Münchmeyer), ca 1874. 24,5 x 20 cm 600 S. mit 24 farblithographischen Tafeln und der rotgetönten Titelseite. HLn der Zeit. Einband stärker gebräunt und am Rücken angeplatzt, Innendeckel mit Namenseintragungen, Titelseite mit Blutspur und Stempel der Leipziger Kunsthandlung Thust, die ersten 10 Blatt am Rand etwas lädiert, sonst an der Ecke durchgängig fingerspurig, eine Lage leicht ausgebunden, zwei Tafeln fleckig, es fehlen die Seiten 3 - 6 und ebenfalls die Seiten nach Seite 600. Erstausgabe des Freundes und Knastkumpans von Karl May. Julius Eduard Maximilian Dittrich (10.6.1844 - 10..5.1917) war Hauslehrer, Journalist und ab 1870 Redakteur verschiedener Zeitungen in Dresden. Da der frühere kaufmännische Angestellte vom 13.7.1866 - 13.1.1868 wegen Betrugs und Unterschlagung in Schloss Osterstein inhaftiert war, kannten sich May und Dittrich vermutlich bereits aus dieser Zeit. (May sass ab 14.6.1865 ebendort ein.) Das umfangreiche und detaillierte Werk zum Deutsch-Französischen Krieg stellt wohl einen Vorgänger zum 1889 bei Münchmeyer erschienenen Prachtband dar. Eindrucksvoll die farbstarken Lithos von: Preußischen Ulanen bei Rheinheim, Forbach nach der Einnahme der Preußen, Saarbrücken während der Beschießung durch die Franzosen, Eroberung der ersten Mitrailleuse durch die Bayern, Vernichtung der französischen Kürassiere bei Wörth, Erstürmung von Weißenburg, Ansicht von Pont a Mousson, Schlacht bei Vionville, Demolirte Batterie in Straßburg, Preußische Batterie vor Metz, Schlacht bei Belfort, deutsche Truppen überfallen Garibaldianer, Ankunft des Kaisers in Frankfurt, Pflanzung der Friedenseiche in München. Die Datierung erfolgte auf Grund einer handschriftlichen Eintragung auf dem Innendeckel. Der Titel ist in deutschen Bibliotheken nicht bekannt. Versand D: 6,00 EUR

He was determined in his attempt to bring it to an end. Samuel Baker was prolific in his writing about Africa. His works on the basin of and search for the sources of the Nile are among the most important writings ever penned about the Dark Continent and he ranks with Burton, Speke and Grant in importance as an African explorer.

        AVENTURAS DE FILIPINAS. ALBUM HUMORISTICO EN 30 HOJAS

      [San Galo, 1874. Laid in a folio portfolio. Original maroon cloth, gilt pictorial cover. Portfolio dampstained. Minute foxing to plates; plates also with faint dust soiling, primarily to edges. Overall clean. Very good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A comic illustrated tour of the Philippines, detailing remarkable and unanticipated adventures awaiting the unwary foreign traveller. Each amusing illustration is captioned in both English and Spanish, and all depict white adventurers suffering a variety of mishaps. These mishaps run a wide gamut, from attacks by wild caribou (a bull-like animal, not to be confused with the caribou of the northern wastes) and monkeys, to squalid accommodations and swindling natives. Though intended as a humorous work, the perilous and often life-threatening situations depicted illuminate the resentment the Filipino people (sometimes illustrated outright, but often represented by the landscape and native animals) felt towards their foreign visitors. The work is divided into three sections: "Aventures de los Cazadores" (Hunting Adventures), "Aventures y Diferentes Modos de Viajar" (Adventures and Different Modes of Travel), and "Aventuras Diferentes" (Different Adventures). Quite rare. OCLC locates only five copies. The imprint, "San Galo," is curious. An exhaustive search of place names reveals no San Galo in the Philippines, Mexico, or South America, though Palau sees fit to include it in his bibliography. There is a Saint Gallen bishopric in Switzerland, though this is an unlikely place of publication. It seems likely the imprint is a ruse, which is consistent with the satirical nature of the work. The same is possibly true of the author's name. In all, an amusing and rare illustrated view of the Philippines near the end of Spanish colonial rule.

        Unsigned Watercolour View of Torquay, England, Titled on Verso:] Torquay from Livermead Sand, 20 October 1874.

      1874 - 1874. Watercolour on paper ca. 22x32,5 cm (8 ½ x 12 ¾ in). Period ink caption on verso. A very good watercolour, mounted in a recent mat. Large attractive watercolour by an unknown artist, showing the Torquay harbour and city from the grounds of the Livermead House hotel. The view depicts picturesque houses and cliffs, several ships in the harbour, with a fishing boat and a peasant with his horse in the foreground. In the early 19th century "the town began to develop into a fashionable seaside resort, initially frequented by members of the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars while the Royal Navy anchored in the bay. Later, as the town's fame spread, it was popular with the crème de la crème of Victorian society. Renowned for its healthful climate, the town earned the nickname of the English Riviera and favourable comparisons to Montpellier. Torquay was the home of the writer Agatha Christie, who was born in the town and lived there during her early years" (Wikipedia).

(2f. préface) pp. 8 à 354 (1f. tab)., relié. - Edition originale pour laquelle il n'a pas été tiré de grands papiers. Reliure en demi maroquin rouge à coins, dos à cinq nerfs sertis de filets noirs, date dorée en queue, plats de papier marbré, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, couvertures conservées, tête dorée, reliure très légèrement postérieure signée de P. Ruban. Bel ex-libris gravé par Provost-Blondel et encollé sur un contreplat. Il représente un casque orné d'une plume, d'un médaillon et d'un phylactère comportant la devise "Toujours en face". Il aurait appartenu à Victor Coué, sous-lieutenant mort au combat durant la Première Guerre mondiale. Cet exemplaire est enrichi de deux frontispices ; une lithographie réhaussée de Félicien Rops représentant un portrait charge de Barbey d'Aurevilly et légendée "Il n'a pour page que son ombre. TS"; ainsi qu'un portrait de l'auteur gravé par Paul-Adolphe Rajon (1843-1888). Notre exemplaire est en outre enrichi de la série de gravures éponyme composée par Félicien Rops entre 1882 et 1886 en vue d'une nouvelle édition chez Alphonse Lemerre. La réunion de ces deux oeuvres majeures de la littérature et de l'histoire de l'art de la fin du XIXe siècle constitue un exceptionnel et unique exemplaire, puisque contrairement à l'idée générale, les estampes de Rops n'ont jamais officiellement accompagné le texte de Barbey dans le cadre d'une véritable édition illustrée. Cette série se compose de trois planches en frontispice ; La Femme et la folie dominant le monde I et II, Le Sphinx, suivies de six autres renvoyant respectivement aux six nouvelles de Barbey et figurant en tête de chacune d'elles ; Le Rideau Cramoisi, Le Plus bel Amour de Don Juan, Le dessous de cartes d'une partie de whist, A un dîner d'athées, Le Bonheur dans le Crime et La Vengeance d'une femme. Bel exemplaire très bien établi en reliure quasi de l'époque. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Edition of wich no leading copies exists. Bound in red half morocco with corners, back with five nerves set with black nets, golden tail date marbled paper plates, guards and contreplats of handmade paper, preserved covers, gilded head, very slightly later signed binding of P. Ribbon. Bel bookplate engraved by Provost-Blondes and pasted on a contreplat. It represents a helmet adorned with a feather, a medallion and a scroll with the motto "Always in front". It was for Victor Coue, lieutenant killed in action during World War II. This copy is enriched with two headpieces; a hand colored lithograph portrait representing Félicien Rops charge Barbey d'Aurevilly and captioned "He did his shadow page for TS."; and a portrait of the author engraved by Paul Rajon Adolphus (1843-1888). Our copy is further enriched by the eponymous series of etchings made by Félicien Rops between 1882 and 1886 for a new edition from Alphonse Lemerre. The meeting of these two major works of literature and art history from the late nineteenth century is an exceptional and unique copy, as opposed to the general idea, prints Rops have never officially together Barbey the text as part of a real illustrated edition. Beautiful copy very well established in almost bound of the time. (1f. faux-titre) (2 f. front.) (1f. titre) (1f.) (2f. préface) pp. 8 à 354 (1f. tab). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        HISTORY OF THE INDIAN TRIBES OF NORTH AMERICA, WITH BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES AND ANECDOTES OF THE PRINCIPAL CHIEFS

      Philadelphia, 1874. Expertly bound to style in uniform navy half morocco over the original blue cloth covered, richly gilt spines divided into five compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second and fourth, the others with repeat decorative motif built up from small tools, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Very good. The last folio edition of one of the most important 19th- century works on the American Indian, and one of the most important color plate books produced in America in the age of lithography. The first folio edition was issued by E.C. Biddle from 1836 to 1844, and reissued by F.W. Greenough and Daniel Rice. The number of different printers and lithographers involved in the project speaks to the complicated production of the most elaborate plate book published in the United States up to that time. The present final edition of McKenney and Hall was issued by the firm of D. Rice, whose father took over the initial project as publisher in the early 1840s. This edition differs from the original folio edition in significant ways. Most importantly, a plate is added, the portrait of Seminole chief Billy Bowlegs which appears as a frontispiece in the second text volume, making this the most complete form of the work. Secondly, the text is present in two separate octavo volumes, thus eliminating the problem of offsetting which plagues the original edition. Thirdly, thirty-nine of the folio plates have been reprinted, using the same lithographic stones, but eliminating the printer's credit lines which appear on earlier issues of the plates, and providing new captions with the names of the Indians only. These plates are printed on superior paper stock and are particularly brilliantly colored. The other eighty-one folio plates are from the earlier issues, evidently using print stock the Rice firm had on hand. Fourthly, this edition omits the map, table, and facsimile signatures of subscribers which appeared in the original edition, and also removes James Hall's name from the titlepage, only crediting McKenney. McKenney and Hall's ...INDIAN TRIBES OF NORTH AMERICA... has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of American Indians. The portrait plates are based on paintings by artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington, D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the 19th century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Cornplanter, and Osceola. After six years as superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the American Indians for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827 he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee, and Winnebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled opportunity to become acquainted with Indian tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1839, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the West. Both authors, not unlike George Catlin, whom they tried to enlist in their publishing enterprise, saw their book as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. McKenney provided the biographies, many based on personal interviews, and Hall wrote the general history of the North American Indian.

        Heresie d'Arius". Autograph manuscript.

      N. p. o. d. - Small folio. 2 pp. Comprehensive transcript of remarks to the central character in Flaubert's "La Tentation de Saint-Antoine" which had appeared in 1874 after twenty years in which Flaubert had dealed with the subject. The detailed notes are relating to the dispute between Arius and Alexander, Bishop of Alexandria, the subsequent exile of Arius and finally his condemnation as a heretic by Emperor Constantine; for instance, Flaubert reflects on there a sons for Arius to beconsidered a heretic: "Hérésie d'Arius. [ ] Le point fondamental de la doctrine d'Arius etait que le fils etait l'ouvrage et la créature du père. [ ] Ce fut comme l'on croit vers ce même temps qu'Arius composa sa thalie [?]. C'etait un Cantique sur la même mesure et sur le même air des chansons infames que Sotade [?] avait autrefois composées pr. les festins et pr. les danses, ce qui suffisait pr. rendre ce cantique odieux outre les erreurs qu'il contenait car Arius y avait enfermé la substance de sa doctrine.

        THE GRIZZLY GIANT

      [Mariposa, Northern California, 1874. Signed, inscribed, and dated across lower image: "The Grizzly Giant. Mariposa / WM Simpson / 1874." Perfectly preserved original condition, rich coloration. Framed and matted. A beautiful watercolor of three men on horseback admiring a towering redwood, the lower formation of bearing a startling resemblance to a grizzly bear, in the Mariposa Grove of northern California, painted by the well known war correspondent and graphic artist, William Simpson. The great tree still stands. Simpson won fame in England in the 1850s for his bold coverage of the Crimean War, and his production of a lavish color plate book, THE SEAT OF THE WAR IN THE EAST, commemorating the ILLUSTRATED LONDON NEWS. He arrived in San Francisco in April 1873, just as the war against the Modoc Indians was coming to a climax. Good correspondent that he was, Simpson headed for the battlefield, the Lava Beds near Mount Shasta on the California-Oregon line, and observed the demise of the Modocs. All of this, as well as further travels in Yosemite (with Bierstadt), San Francisco, and Japan, he describes in detail in his book, MEETING THE SUN (London, 1877). This handsome watercolor is the only known California image by Simpson presently available in the American art market. A number of his California watercolors are in the permanent collection of the Bancroft Library, with other pieces located at the Peabody Museum (Harvard) and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

      Bern, 18. April o. J. - ¾ S. Kl.-4to. Van der Velde notiert, dass ihm beim Durchblättern eines Albums Bilder aufgefallen seien, die Menschen unterschiedlicher Nationalitäten zeigen. Mit Bitterkeit fragt er, ob solche Zeiten je wiederkehren würden, in denen Herzlichkeit verschiedene Landsleute verbinde „En feuilletant cet album où se trouvent réunis tant de noms d’hommes de nationalités différentes avec quelle amertume ne doit-on pas penser qu’il y eût un temps où on aurait pu les réunir tous dans un salon et qu’ils se seraient tendu alors avec une cordialité et une sympathie sincères les mains! Sommes-nous aujourd’hui assez éloignés de ce temps? Et par quelles crises dura encore passer l’Humanité avant que se rétablissent entre les hommes de différentes nationalités ces rapports de société et de cordialité qui sont la garantie la plus féconde d’une culture progressive?" – Die Verso-Seite mit einem alt montierten Albumblatt des Schriftstellers und Dramaturgen Otto Borngräber (1874–1916): „Sicher interessiert Sie mehr die ‚Politik’ eines Mannes als seine Dichtung. Nun, meine Politik ist mit 2 Sätzen gesagt: Mich interessiert kein Staat ausser: der glückliche Status des wertvollen Individuums. Ich anerkenne keine Herrschaft, ausser: meine eigene Herrschaft über mich selbst. Ihr ‚Anarchist’ | Otto Borngräber" (dat. Kandersteg, „Friedens Kongreß", 19. März 1916. 1 S. Kl.-4to). – Mit alten Montagespuren am rechten und kleinen Läsuren am unteren Rand. – Beidseitig mit einer kleinen Numerierung am oberen Blattrand.

      New York: Scribner Armstrong and Co., 1874 The true first state of the First American deluxe edition with 'Scribner, Armstrong & Co.' on the bottom of the spine instead of just 'Scribers' on the spine. With 52 B&W engravings by Riou. No date listed but this was the first deluxe American edition, published in 1874. In the original orange pictorial cloth decorated in black and gilt, designs and lettering are bright and clean. As expected for this book, covers are worn along extremities, especially at corners. Professionally restored at head and foot of spine panel. The spine has also been reinforced internally by a book binder. Binding is square and solid. Interior is clean with prior owner's name in ink on front free end paper, with some scattered foxing on end papers and some age toning to margins, that does not impinge on the text or illustrations. As issued, without a dust jacket. ***The First French Edition, Voyage au Centre de la Terre, was published in Paris in 1864 . The First English edition appeared in London in 1872. Scribner Armstrong's 1st U.S. edition was published in November, 1873, but was dated 1874. In late 1874, Scribner Armstrong published this deluxe edition, sold by subscription only. A very good copy of a scarce classic of very early science fiction, in the illustrated deluxe edition.
