His father Charles Greville was a second cousin of the 1st Earl of Warwick, and his mother was Lady Charlotte Bentinck, daughter of the 3rd Duke of Portland (former leader of the Whig party and Prime Minister).The memoirs appeared in three sets?"one volume for 1817 to 1837 and two for the period from 1837 to 1860, published in 1875, three volumes in 1885 and two in 1887. When the first series appeared in 1875 some passages caused extreme offence.In 1874, when it became known that Greville's diary was going to be printed, the news caused an uproar. Queen Victoria wrote that she was "horrified and indignant at this dreadful and really scandalous book. Mr Greville's indiscretion, indelicacy, ingratitude, betrayal of confidence and shameful disloyalty towards his Sovereign make it very important that the book should be severely censored and discredited". She also said that "The tone in which he speaks of royalty is unlike anything which one sees in history, even of people hundreds of years ago, and is most reprehensible...Of George IV he speaks in such shocking language, language not fit for any gentleman to use".Victoria (Alexandrina Victoria; 24 May 1819 ?" 22 January 1901) was Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 20 June 1837 until her death. From 1 May 1876, she used the additional title of Empress of India.Condition:Conditions are Good/Very Good.  Some wear to edges, missing a little leather to some corners, bookplates, tiny bit of gold touch up to a few corners, missing one upper spine label, pages/hinges/text blocks are very good for over 125/35 years old!!!

        Book of Mormon

      Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Plano, IL 1874 - Full brown leather binding with blind embossed design on front and back with gold gilt title and gold ruling within raised bands and five compartments. Rubbing to corners, boards and edges. Slight separation at top of spine but binding is firm. Marbled endpapers and faded marbling on edges. Front endpaper has slight separation at bottom. Edges are browned. Some foxing to the pages but interior is relatively clean. A few scattered pencil markings. Prior to this printing the RLDS used the 1858 James Wright published Book of Mormon, basically a re-printing of the 1840 Nauvoo edition. Two editions were printed in 1874, this and one in Lamoni, Iowa. The Plano edition is considered the first and more scarce edition. Sabin states that this edition in fact is not a re-print of the third American edition, as stated on title page, rather it follows the Liverpool stereotyped edition of 1852. Our copy, according to the inscription in front and back (plus C.A. Parkin, Grocer stamped on first page) was owned by Charles A. Parkin (1847-1924), who served as branch president of the San Francisco RLDS up to the 1906 earthquake. "It seems as if S.F. branch is broken up, so many have gone away. Everything we had was burned.more than two thirds of S.F. branch lost their homes and the rest lost businesses". This copy was an earthquake survivor. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Les Pléiades

      Stockholm: Jos. Müller & Cie, 1874. First edition. Three quarter calf over marbled boards, five raised bands ruled in gilt, morocco lettering piece, five compartments with gilt flowers and decorations, all edges marbled, marbled endpapers. A very good copy, spine and boards rubbed, owner's bookplate on front pastedown, scattered foxing, heavier to blanks and first and last few leaves. 12mo. The most important novel by Gobineau (1816-1882) whose later work is often overshadowed by his "Essau sur l'inegalitie des races humaines," written twenty years earlier. "Shows a debt to Stendhal (whom Gobineau, like Balzac, appreciated when few other critics did)" Harvey & Haseltine, p. 313. With the rise fascism and racial theories, and a look towards a mythological past, a Gobineau revival occurred in France between the two world wars. Cocteau wrote "Ce roman sublime enseigne que le destin travaille dans une zone où nos signes d'intelligence cessent de signifier;" but Roman Rolland added the caution that in Count de Gobineau we see the "same avowed scorn for progress, for liberalism, for that 'humanitarian opium,' for democratic ideals -the same tragic and haughty vision of the struggle of the races- the same voluntary selection of absolute power in the State and Church, here below and in heaven above." (For a complete discussion see "Nineteenth-Century French Fiction Writers: Naturalism and Beyond, 1860-1900. Ed. Catharine Savage Brosman in Dictionary of Literary Biography Vol. 123).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Düsseldorf, September 1874.. 1 S. Gr.-8vo.. An Herrn Conzen: "[ ] Es ist mir lieb, Ihnen endlich das Bild abliefern zu können.

        Im Albanergebirge

      1874. Feder über Bleistift auf Papier mit Wasserzeichen "P", recto die Darstellung eines Römerpaares, dort unten rechts bezeichnet und datiert: "Grotta ferrata e S. Marino 5 April 74 Ostern", verso mit der Studie zweier Reiter, 22,2 x 28,4 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Hans Thoma betritt Italien zum ersten Mal im Februar 1874. Da war er bereits 34 Jahre alt und hatte nach wiederholten Ablehnungen und Rückschlägen endlich in Otto Scholderer einen Förderer und in Gustave Courbet ein Ideal seiner Kunst gefunden. Anders als viele andere Künstler, die in jungen Jahren nach Italien kamen und denen die südliche Sonne wie eine Erweckung erschien, war Thoma ein gestandener und geprüfter Künstler, dessen Kunstvorstellung bereits auf sein Italienerlebnis Einfluss nahm und nicht umgekehrt. Am 5. April 1874 sah Thoma auf einem Ausflug von Rom über Frascati und Tuscolo nach Grottaferrata ein römisches Paar, das ihn nachhaltig beeindruckte. In seinen Lebenserinnerungen schildert er die Szene wie folgt: "Einen eigenen Eindruck machte mir ein schönes Römerpaar, er in der Campagnolentracht mit Hut und Mantel, sie eine wunderschöne schwarzhaarige Frau; sie schritten rüstig daher und führten zwei weiße Rosse hinter sich, ein zottiger weißer Hirtenhund begleitete sie."1 Unsere Zeichnung ist die künstlerische Notiz eben jener Begegnung. In groben Bleistiftumrissen hat Thoma die Komposition zügig festgehalten. Die nervösen Federstiche erforschen die Details und konkretisieren den flüchtigen Moment. Im folgenden Jahr hat Thoma die Komposition wieder aufgegriffen, sie allerdings stark verändert. Er hat die Szenerie ins Hochformat gezogen, das Paar durch eine leichte Staffelung von einander getrennt, den in den Aufzeichnungen erwähnten Hund eingeführt und besonders den intensiven Blick der Frau vom Betrachter weg in die Ferne gewendet. Insgesamt verleiht das neue Arrangement dem Bild einen monumentalen Charakter (Vgl.-Abb. 10). Die lockere Spontaneität unserer Zeichnung weicht in der späteren Version einem abgeriegelten Bildraum und einer bedeutungsschweren Stille, die für viele Arbeiten Thomas so charakteristisch ist. Doch auch unsere Zeichnung ist bereits in der bedrängenden Frontalität äußerst ungewöhnlich und widerspricht gängigen Ideen eines klassischen Bildaufbaus. Zwar findet sich eine gewisse Tiefenstaffelung, doch vor der reliefartigen Strukturierung weicht die Räumlichkeit zurück. Aber gerade diese direkte Konfrontation macht die Zeichnung besonders ansprechend, denn sie fesselt durch die Kombination von spontanem Wirklichkeitseindruck und vollständig artifiziell gestaltetem Arrangement. Auf der anderen Seite des Blattes hat Thoma auf präzise Weise jenen schon genannten Aspekt der Stille verwirklicht. Die gesamte Konzentration liegt auf den beiden Reitern, die in ihrer Versenkung in sich selbst wie teilnahmslos getriebene erscheinen. Diese Ruhe in der Bewegung ist hier besonders reizvoll komponiert. Dass ihm dies trotz des wilden Furors der Bleistift- und Federlinien gelingt, bezeugt Thomas hohes zeichnerisches Können. Auch dieses Motiv greift Thoma wieder auf und integriert es in sein Gemälde Erinnerung an Orte. Der 1874 entstandenen Ölskizze ließ er 1887 eine variierende Zeichnung und ein Gemälde folgen.

        A Monographic revision and synopsis of the Trichoptera of the European Fauna.

      London, John van Voorst/ Berlin, Friedländer, 1874-1880. Royal-8vo. pp. iv, 523, ciii, with 59 plates. Contemporary half calf, gilt spine. The present publication is considered McLachlan's greatest work. It was published in 9 parts and as the edition was small the work is very scarce. McLachlan (1837-1904) was the first editor of the 'Entomologists' Monthly Magazine' and the leading English neuropterist. He inherited sufficient means to devote all his time to the study of entomology. The 59 plates contain about 2000 figures, and the work describes 474 species.//An additional supplement was published in 1884, which is not included.//Essig. A History of Entomology, p. 707; B.M.(Nat. Hist.)III, 1212.

        Dictionnaire de la Langue Des Cris, and Grammaire de la Langue Des Cris. 2 Volumes Bound As 1 Volume

      Montreal: C.O. Beuchemin & Valois 1874, 1st Edition. () xx, 711, (4), iii, 190pp. Very good. Octavo. Original green wrappers, with black lettering on front and spine, black pictorial on front. Side and bottom foredges untrimmed. Stamp from Alberta Provincial Archives on half-title. Unopened pages prevalent. One fold-out map, one fold-out chart. Crisp, clean text. Peel 3, 708 709. Albert Lacombe (1827-1916) is an important figure in the history of Alberta due to his missionary work, promotion of education, and role as interpreter for and influencer of the Native peoples. In 1857, he travelled into Blackfoot country. He became a priest for the Blackfoot in 1960 when he took his final vows. He became intimately involved with their society and culture when an outbreak of smallpox occurred from 1870-72. In 1881, he became a chaplain to CPR workers, and in 1882 was made Superior of the Calgary Mission for all of Southern Alberta. When the railway reached Calgary in 1883, Lacombe was largely praised for the lack of violent action from the Indians. On March 27th, 1885 the Métis attacked Duck Lake NWT, effectively beginning the Northwest Rebellion. Lacombe spoke to Chief Crowfoot, and all the Blackfoot, and influenced them to not participate in the Riel rebellion. Chief Crowfoot is said to have praised Father Lacombe "as one of the greatest friends of our Nation. When we rejoice, he rejoices, when we are sad and in mourning, he is sad and sorrowful with us." Lacombe also helped to release the Cree Chief Poundmaker, Chief Crowfoot's adopted son, from prison. Lacombe's actions made him a true hero in Western Canada to colonial settlers and Native people alike, earning him an everlasting legacy. A fantastic copy of a historically significant book, one of Lacombe's contributions to interpretation and education in Western Canada..

        Two page ALS by General Charles Gordon, Governor of the Equatorial Africa written from "Entrance of Subat River" to a comrade discussing his life as the new Commander in the Sudan: "You see ostriches and giraffes, but if you kill one what is the use of it? The natives are utterly uninteresting naked savages, nothing more than animals who are always hungry."

      "The letter dated July 15, 1874 reads in full, ""My dear Newsome, Read and send on. I hope you and your uncle are well. I am all right, and in good spirits. I am glad to say this is a good sign for when a man gets depressed he is likely to get fever. Are you continuing your visits to London, how tired you must be of the train. I have had no news since I left Cairo except one batch of old letters dated on 10th March. How is the club? And the Wrottesleys. I never was so glad as I am at not having a large staff. The trouble I have had with the little one I have got was far more than I have had with the slavers. There is very little shooting as far as I can see. You come across large herds of antelopes but they are some off, and are very shy. You see ostriches and giraffes, but if you kill one what is the use of it? The natives are utterly uninteresting naked savages, nothing more than animals who are always hungry. My great amusement is my doctoring the soldiers. I am now a pretty good medical man for the ordinary diseases. I go to bed as any one else does at sunset (the mosquitoes will not let you sit up) & ride at sunrise. Life this ebbs away quietly and although I cannot expect to do much, I think I shall do something towards the welfare of the party at any rate, I have made them more accessible by running about quickly & showing people that they are not so far off, as they have appeared to be. Believe me my dear Newsome with kind regards to your uncle. Yours sincerely, C.G. Gordon."" In 1873 Gordon received a definite offer from the khedive, which he accepted with the consent of the British government, and proceeded to Egypt early in 1874. Gordon was made a colonel in the Egyptian army. The Egyptian authorities had been extending their control southwards since the 1820s. An expedition was sent up the White Nile, under Sir Samuel Baker, which reached Khartoum in February 1870 and Gondokoro in June 1871. Baker met with great difficulties and managed little beyond establishing a few posts along the Nile. The khedive asked for Gordon to succeed Baker as governor of the region. After a short stay in Cairo, Gordon proceeded to Khartoum via Suakin and Berber. From Khartoum, he proceeded up the White Nile to Gondokoro. General Gordon's job was to suppress the slave trade This he did with enthusiasm. He was an energetic commander of his native troops, and he often exhausted his men. An example of this is that he would set off from Khartoum on a camel with his escort. His staff might expect him to take 12 hours to cover the distance to them if he went at the usual stately walk. Gordon would get his camel to go at a full gallop and he would leave his escort behind. He would arrive 3 hours after he set out and then set about disciplining any one not doing his job properly, often by sacking them. The Subat River is formed by the confluence of the Baro and Pibor rivers on the Ethiopian border, it merges with the Jabal River in Sudan to form the White Nile."
