He was due to step from his royal yacht at precisely 11.30am on May 13th at Gravesend. Thousands were waiting to watch the arrival, but instead they were told that His Imperial Majesty's yacht had run aground off Holland and could not be moved until high tide. The Tsar had to divert to Dover for a hastily arranged welcome and a dash by train to Windsor. Queen Victoria was warned by telegram. "What a contretemps!" she noted in her diary.

        The Marine Mammals of the North-Western Coast of North America, described and illustrated; . with an account of the American Whale-Fishery.

      - San Francisco, John H. Carmany 1874. Quarto contemporary half morocco; 320,vpp, 27 litho plates (6 folding, these mounted on linen at the time of binding), illustrations through the text. Ex parliamentary library with their gilt crest on the front boards and incorporated into the spine, not marked inside; foxing but a handsome copy. A handsome book, in its way a sophistication of a cave painter's delineation of his prey. Here Scammon - a whale and seal hunter - has turned naturalist, creating a modern scientific and historical monument with such care that a few of the illustrations show an almost transcendental love of what is, or soon will be, a product. At the end is a whaling vocabulary and an inventory of stores for a first-class whale-ship for a Cape Horn voyage. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        LADY ANNA

      1874. A Novel. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1874. 4 pp preliminary ads + 2 pp terminal ads, undated. Original orange-brown paper wrappers. First American Edition, issued as No. 411 in Harper's "Library of Select Novels." Trollope wrote this tale in 1871, during the two-month passage from Liverpool to Melbourne (where the Trollopes' son was marrying); he began on the first day at sea, and every day (except one when he was sick) he wrote precisely 66 pages of manuscript, each page consisting of precisely 250 words. Although Sadleir indicates that both the UK edition and this US edition were published in May 1874, Smith states that the UK edition was published on March 28, 1874, followed by this edition on May 20th. (The fact that the rear cover bears the date March 1874 has led some to claim that this American edition was earlier than the UK edition; in any case, both were preceded by Tauchnitz's edition in December 1873.)~LADY ANNA was published by Harper only in these wrappers -- not in cloth as well. This copy is in the earliest state, with the list of Library titles ending with No. 406. Condition is near-fine, with scarcely any wear other than the fact that, as if often the case with these wrappered volumes, the spine is askew or "rolled." This is a scarce edition. Smith (Trollope) pp 181-185 (this very copy); also see Sadleir (Trollope) 42. Provenance: signature "R.S. Lee" at the top of the front cover, penciled signature of bibliographer Walter E. Smith at the top of the title page.

        [Manuscript] Journal of a Voyage between Liverpool and New York 1874. A remarkable journal kept by a newly qualified surgeon of his 1874 trip to New York after 'passing my Primary examinations for the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons' before starting to practice in the autumn The journal contains a profusion of vividly rendered and highly unconventional detail about life in America's metropolis including a visit to the cells at New York Police Headquarters, a dramatisation of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre on Broadway which prompts a foray by Hodgson into dramatic criticism ('If Miss Charlotte Bronte could have seen the play, she would have had some difficulty in recognising it as an adaptation of her own novel') and finally the return passage spent in the intoxicating company of a future White Mountains artist and a young man destined to become a leading Australian meteorologist, breaking off in the middle of a storm at sea: 'a wall of water... approaches with terrible rapidity, and shifting the ship on the side, makes her shiver from stem to stern, while the great mass falls with a crash onto the deck, and sweeps all before it into the dark and hungry ocean beyond.'

      , 1874. New York, 1874. Octavo. 32 pages Original Softcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. The Journal is accompanied by a very misleading replica of a wonderful whalers scrimshaw (the scrimshaw comes from a different source and was not originally part of this journal).

        Voyage dans la Chine Centrale. Vallée du Yang-Tzu, fait de Mai a Août 1873.

      Paris: Delgrave, 1874. Octavo, [iv], 40 pp. (last blank), folding map; unopened in original printed wrappers. Scarce posthumously published offprint, describing Francis Garnier's last China expedition. Shortly afterwards he led an armed expedition against Vietnamese forces and captured Hanoi for a short time. The survivor of the most ambitious Mekong expedition of the nineteenth-century, Garnier travelled to China in 1873 to capitalise on his earlier experiences and advance French trading interests in the region. After travelling to Shanghai with his wife, Garnier ventured into remote central China for some three months without an escort or interpreter. Recalled to Saigon in August 1873, he was here drawn in local intrigue between the Governor of Cochinchina, Marie-Jules Dupré, and a French trader, Jean Dupuis. When he reached Hanoi he confronted Vietnamese officials and led a successful attack on the Hanoi citadel. However, in an attempt to defend it against Chinese Black Flag bandits on 21 December 1873, Garnier was killed. Subsequent to these events, the French negotiated a withdrawal from Vietnam in early 1874.This is a separately-paginated offprint from Bulletin de la Société de Géographie de Paris for 1874. A little scattered foxing and small water stain affecting top blank margin, nonetheless an excellent copy.

        I Tasmaniani cenni storici ed Etnologici di un Popolo Estinto... .

      Milan: Fratelli Treves, 1874. Octavo, 160 pp., numerous xylographic illustrations, in an early pebbled cloth binding, Milanese sale receipt from 1942 tipped onto front endpaper, neat ex libris blind stamp to title. Very rare: the great anthropolgist Enrico Hillyer Giglioli's account of the Tasmanian Aborigines (see also the following item).Enrico Giglioli (1845-1909) was an Italian zoologist and anthropologist, director of the Florence Royal Zoological Museum and an honorary member of the Royal Geographical Society. As a young man Giglioli had studied in London under luminaries such as T.H. Huxley, and immediately on his return to Italy in 1865 had been appointed to the Magenta for its important voyage of scientific discovery in Australia and the Pacific. During this voyage he visited both Melbourne and Sydney (although not Tasmania), and his association with some of the scientific establishment here piqued his interest in the Australian Aborigines. On his return he was appointed to the University of Turin to catalogue the vast collections made on the voyage, beginning a career as one of the preeminent ethnographers and biologists of his era. This major monograph on the Tasmanians was also one of his earliest publications, and is quite rare in any form.It was first published as a two-part essay in the Archivio per l'Antropologia e la Etnologia in 1871, and there may have been an offprint edition of that essay (records are a bit sketchy), but this 1874 edition is its first proper appearance as a book, heavily revised and expanded, notably with the addition of the map and many of the printed images. Repairs to the endpapers at the gutters, some toning; a very good copy.

        Les diaboliques

      First edition, of which there were no large paper copies. Near contemporary red half morocco over marbled paper boards by P. Ruban, spine in six compartments, raised bands bounded by black fillets, date gilt at foot of spine, marbled endpapers and pastedowns, covers preserved, top edge gilt. Attractive ex libris engraved by Provost-Blondel on pastedown, representing a helmet with a feather, medallion and a strip with the motto "Tojours en face." The ex libris belonged to Victor Coué, a 2nd Lieutenant killed in the First World War.This copy has two frontispieces: one lithograph heightened by Félicien Rops showing a caricature of Barbey d'Aurevilly with the caption "Il n'a pour page que son ombre. TS [his page is none other than his shadow]" and a portrait of the author engraved by Paul-Adolphe Rajon (1843-1888).This copy is further enriched with the eponymous series of engravings by Félicien Rops done between 1882 and 1886 with a view to a new edition by Alphonse Lemerre. The meeting of these two major works of literature and history of art from the end of the 19th century makes for an exceptional and unique copy, since - contrary to what is generally thought - Rops' prints never actually accompanied Barbey's text in a genuine illustrated edition. The series is composed of three frontispiece plates: La Femme et la folie dominant le monde I et II [Woman and Madness Ruling the World I and II], Le Sphinx [The Sphinx], and six others referring respectively to six of Barbey's short stories and figuring at the beginning of each: Le Rideau Cramoisi [The Cramoisi Curtain], Le Plus Bel Amour de Don Juan [Don Juan's Finest Affair], Le Dessous de cartes d'une partie de whist [The Undersides of the Cards in a Game of Whist], à un dîner d'athées [At an Atheists' Dinner], Le Bonheur dans le Crime [The Joy of the Crime] and La Vengeance d'une femme [A Woman's Revenge]. A very good copy in a practically contemporary binding.  E. Dentu Paris 1874 12x18,5cm (1f. faux-titre) (2 f. front.) (1f. titre) (1f.) (2f. préface) pp. 8 à 354 (1f. tab). relié

[Liang Zhi]. Following its publication this work became the educated 19th century Chinese persons standard reference for all related to the United States. There are still disputes among the academics with regard to how many Chinese editions of this book exist.

[Yamolige he zhong guo zhi lue] and the 1861 Shanghai edition ?????? [Da mei lian bang zhi lue].In 1861 the first Japanese edition was published in Shanghai and it immediately proved very popular running to a further six editions over the following 13 years.

      - Ferguson 13171a. First edition of a mineralogical map, showing the entire province of New South Wales, together with an index to the colours and a list of proclaimed gold fields.

Six of these sections list all kinds of relevant data collected in 1874 and 1875, such as population, trade per head of the population, figures of international trade, length of railways, amount of live stock, and the output of the coal, tin, gold and copper fields. The final section advertises the province for settlers in a series of 11 "advantages of new South Wales as a home for the emigrant", such as ready employment, cheap cost of living, good soil and climate, great mineral resources, Sydney and its harbour, etc. "All this may be enjoyed among a people whose whole social lise is so like Home that it is scarcely possible for the emigrant to feel like 'a stranger in a strange land'" (advantage 10).Edges of wrappers faded with a tiny tear. A very good copy of this mineral map.
