        Trojanische Alterthümer

      Leipzig: F. A. Brockhaus,, 1874. Bericht über die Ausgrabungen in Troja. Octavo (217 x 140 mm). Contemporary patterned paper boards, gilt fillets to spine forming compartments, Gothic title gilt to second on red ground. Vignette title page, full-page line-drawing, occasional symbols and Greek types to the text. Extremities rubbed, old shelf-mark label to spine extending slightly over covers, various library ink-stamps to title page verso, pale foxing, variable faint tide-mark to fore and top edges, marginal ink-spot to p. XXXVI. A good copy. First edition. Schliemann's successful identification of Hisarlik in north-west Anatolia as the site of Homeric Troy is still considered today "the greatest of all archaeological finds" (PMM). His methods, which involved the destructive use of dynamite, were widely criticised by later scholars, but at the time his account of his discovery enjoyed a popularity unequalled by any previous work in the field. Schliemann, the son of a pastor from Mecklenburg, made his fortune in business before devoting himself entirely to proving the reality of the Homeric epics. "In 1870 [he] started work at Hisarlik and by 1873, at the lowest stratum, he laid bare vast fortifications destroyed by fire and discovered a treasure of gold jewellery ? What Schliemann had in fact discovered is now known to be a pre-Achaean city, long preceding the Homeric city; but he had proved his initial thesis: here was the real site of Troy" (idem).

        Photographs Showing Landscapes, Geological and Other Features of Portions of the Western Territory of the United States, Obtained in Connection with Geographical and Geological Explorations and Surveys West of the 100th Meridion. Seasons of 1871, 1872 and 1873

      Washington 1874 - (15 3/8 x 19 3/4 inches). On linen guards throughout. Lithographic title on card. 25 albumen photographs by O'Sullivan (18) and Bell (7), mounted on lettered Wheeler Survey two-tone mounts. Minor fading to a few images, some foxing to the linen guards. Contemporary half reddish brown morocco and cloth covered boards, spine with semi-raised bands in six compartments, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges Iconic landscape images of the American West: a very rare Wheeler Expedition album of photographs by O'Sullivan and Bell. All of the present photographs were taken during the series of expeditions known by the collective title of the Geographical Surveys West of the 100th Meridian (or more usually as the Wheeler Survey, after its leader, Lieutenant George M. Wheeler). The photographs document the work and explorations of the survey, and include some of the earliest photographs taken of the Grand Canyon and of Indian tribes and sites in northern Arizona and New Mexico. A number of these images have achieved iconic status among the images of the early West. The survey's main goal was to make topographic maps of the southwestern United States and the present series of images focuses on the landscapes of this region. The present album contains images from each of the first three years of the Survey, and comprises the following subjects (with series identification numbers): Expedition of 1871 (all by O'Sullivan) No. 1. Snow Peaks, Bull Run Mining District, Nevada [I:1] No. 2 Group of Pah-Ute Indians, Nevada [I:2] No. 3. Bluff Opposite Big Horn Camp, Black Canon, Colorado River [I:3] No. 4. Black Canon, Colorado River, Looking Below from Big Horn Camp [I:4] No. 5. Black Canon, Colorado River, Looking Above from Camp 7 [I:5] No. 6. Black Canon, Colorado River, Looking Below, near Camp 7 [I:6] No. 7. Black Canon, Colorado River, Looking Below, near Camp 7 [I:7] No. 8. Black Canon, Colorado River, from Camp 8, Looking Above [I:8] The first season saw the expedition endure many privations but despite this O'Sullivan was tireless in his efforts to record the magnificent scenery. "The extant views taken in 1871. show the pristine beauty of the canyon country. The surface of the Colorado River appears deceptively placid in these photographs, an illusion created by the [relatively] long exposure of the negatives. Not all the vantage points O'Sullivan used are accessible today. The construction of the Hoover Dam in 1936 submerged portions of the Colorado gorge under the waters of Lake Mead" (Wheeler's Photographic Survey of the American West). Expedition of 1872 (all by Bell) No. 1. Canon of Kanab Wash, Colorado River, Looking South [II:1] No. 2. Canon of Kanab Wash, Colorado River, Looking North [II:2] No. 3. Canon of Kanab Wash, Colorado River, Looking South [II:3] No. 4. Canon of Kanab Wash, Colorado River, Looking North [II:4] No. 5. Colorado River, Mouth of Kanab Wash, Looking West [II:5] No. 6. Grand Canon, Colorado River, Near Paria Creek, Looking West [II:6] No. 7. Grand Canon, Colorado River, Near Paria Creek, Looking West [II:7] "For the 1872 season, O'Sullivan was replaced by William Bell, who is variously identified as a Philadelphian or as an Englishman. all agree that he was a skilled photographer" (op. cit.). His photographs were taken using a dry plate process that had some advantages, but required much longer exposures than the wet plate process employed by O'Sullivan and most other photographers at the time. This obviously influenced his choice of subjects, but, clearly, in no way handicapped his ability to compose spectacular images of great beauty. Expedition of 1873 (all by O'Sullivan) No. 1. Apache Lake, Sierra Blanca Range, Arizona [III:1] No. 2. View on Apache Lake, Sierra Blanca Range, Arizona [III:2] No. 3. View on Apache Lake, Sierra Blanca Range, Arizona [III:3] No. 4. North Fork Canon, Sierra Blanca Creek, Arizona [III:4] No. 5. Cooley's Park, Sierra Blanca Rang [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Romances sans paroles.

      - Sens, typographie de Maurice L'Hermitte, 1874 In-12, demi-percaline vert bronze de l'époque à la Bradel, dos orné d'un fleuron central et doubles filets dorés, pièce de titre de chagrin violine, 48, (1) p. dont faux-titre et titre. Edition originale "rare et très recherché" (Clouzot), tirée à 300 exemplaires sur papier ivoire. Verlaine était en prison lors de l’impression de ce recueil qu’il ne put dédier à Rimbaud par peur du scandale. Publié de façon confidentielle par Edmond Lepelletier, ami de Verlaine à la demande de celui-ci, le recueil resta inaperçu et il fallut attendre la réédition en 1887 chez Vanier pour qu’il trouve son public. " ‘Romances sans paroles’ marque un tournant radical dans l’oeuvre de Verlaine et dans l’histoire de la poésie française. Ce 'petit bouquin', qu’il rédige pendant sa liaison tumultueuse avec Rimbaud est hanté par la tentation du silence. Que peut la parole face à la réalité ? Comment dire les sentiments d’un moi erratique et opaque à lui-même ? Et surtout, comment les dire autrement, après le romantisme, qui les a exaltés, et le Parnasse, qui s’en est méfié ? En s’emparant d’un genre désuet, la romance, Verlaine réinvente le beau, renoue avec l’oralité au coeur de l’écrit, et fait du chant l’utopie de la parole poétique" (Arnaud Bernardet). Le titre est emprunté au recueil de pièces pour piano de Félix Mendelssohn. ('En Français dans le texte', 301. Montel, 'Bibliographie de Paul Verlaine', p. 18-20. Vicaire, VII, 991-992).

        Untitled (Black Death Map) 1874 Reissue of John Snow's Dot Map

      London: George Stanford, 1874. unbound. Map. Colored engraving. Image measures 15 x 16". This scarce map depicts the clusters of cholera or Black Death cases during the 1854 Broad Street Cholera outbreak in London. Originally created by John Snow, this map was published as part of the "Sixth Report of the Commissioners appointed in 1868 to inquire into the best means of preventing the pollution of rivers. The domestic water supply of Great Britain". The map extends from Margaret Street to Piccadilly Circus and from Hanover Square to Soho Square.<br><br>The Broad Street cholera outbreak of 1854 was the basis of John Snow's discovery that it was contaminated water and not air that spread cholera. John Snow, a physician at the time, conducted an elaborate investigation, after which he determined the source of the outbreak to be the public water pump at the intersection of Broad street (Broadwick Street) and Cambridge street (Lexington Street). The pump is located in the center of this particular map. He later developed this dot map in 1855 to show how the cholera cases were centered on the pump and mapped the locations and distances of other pumps nearby, thus proving that the disease spread through the closest available sources of water connected to the Broad Street pump.<br><br>This particular map was issued in the 1874 "Sixth Report of the Commissioners appointed in 1868 to inquire into the best means of preventing the pollution of rivers. The domestic water supply of Great Britain". The report was presented to both houses of Parliament by command of Her Majesty. The map is in very good condition with minor wear along the folds and some foxing. Very small repair over bottom margin, not affecting the image. Important infographic map

"This important contribution to the theory of evolution has had more influence on later biology than Haeckel's perhaps better-known work, 'Natürliche Schöpfungsgeschichte'. It contains a clear statement of the embryological processes, and it is in this work that Haeckel states the well-known tenet that 'ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny', that is, that the formation of the individual is a repetition of the formation of the species, so graphically illustrated in Table XII of the book." - Heirs of Hippocrates, 1061.

Alcuni aloni ai piatti, fioriture e bruniture diffuse. Restauri marginali alle ultime cc. Discreto stato. Prima edizione, rarissima, progettata in 200 copie, di cui solo 74 furono distribuite (esemplare della tiratura su carta forte. .il titolo più noto tra le opere dossiane, quella Colonia felice di cui si ebbero sei edizioni tra il 1874 e il 1895 e che in virtù delle suggestioni di stampo rousseauiano riscosse un consenso capace di entusiasmare la società letteraria (con in testa Carducci ed Edoardo Scarfoglio) e raggiungere le aule parlamentari: intervenendo l&#146;8 novembre 1888 al Senato sull&#146;organizzazione delle colonie penali, Tullo Massarani lesse alcuni brani del romanzo, elogiandone le finalità pedagogico-umanitarie (Sul Codice Penale. Parole dette in Senato da Tullo Massarani, Roma 1888, pp. 31-33). (Francesco Lioce in D.B.I., LXXXIV, 2015). Il libro, annesso da vari studiosi al genere della protofantascienza. fu definito dal Carducci la più ampia e vigorosa concezione di romanzo che le lettere italiane avessero avuto da molti anni a quella parte. Palpita in quest'opera un bisogno di palingenesi alla Rousseau. Il romanzo è a tesi: fortemente costruito e robustamente condotto. spazia su orizzonti ampi, passioni primitive, suggestive ingenuità. Vi si sente qua e là l'azione del Rovani, che il Dossi ammirò e venerò. Il Croce imputò al romanzo eccessiva astrattezza, consistente nel dedurre il personaggio dal simbolo (Maria Maggi in Dizionario Bompiani delle Opere, II, pp. 307-308).

        [ORIGINAL COLORED JAPANESE WOODBLOCK PRINT SHOWING A MEETING BETWEEN THE KABUKI ACTOR DANJURO IX AND THE ITALIAN PHOTOGRAPHER ADOLFO FARSARI]

      [Tokyo: Nichinichi Shinbun, 1874. Colored woodblock print, 13 3/4 x 9 inches. Left edge trimmed a bit in border. Light wrinkling. Very good, the colors bright and robust. An attractive and vibrant colored Japanese woodblock print, showing a meeting between renowned Kabuki actor Danjuro Ix and Italian-born photographer Adolfo Farsari. The illustration provides a striking image of a meeting between East and West, and between western technological innovation and traditional Japanese culture. Drawn by Utagawa school artist Yoshiiku, the woodblock was issued as a supplement to the TOKYO NICHINICHI SHINBUN newspaper in September 1874. Yoshiiku was a founder of the newspaper and is known for his sensational color supplements and other illustrations. According to the Japanese text, in May 1872 an unidentified "yojin" ("ocean person") visited Danjuro Ix backstage and asked to photograph the actor in exchange for some cigarettes. The westerner is not identified in the text, but a comparison with photographs of Adolfo Farsari is conclusive. Farsari took up residence in Japan in the early 1870s, and eventually became one of the most prominent photographers in the country. In this image he sits beside the heavily adorned Kabuki performer, who is seated before his dressing table. A striking image.

With detailed information about political, legislative and financial system, its natural resources and agriculture, also about wineries, the factories and the wages, the population and the German community and its facilities. Signed and dated in Adelaide on "Neujahrstage, 1874" by four respected pioneers of the German community in Adelaide: Friedrich Eduard Heinrich Wulf Krichauff (1824-1904) who arrived to Australia in 1848, became a politician and held various public offices. He was also involved in agriculture and according to this pamphlet he worked as a land agent. Joachim Matthias Wendt (1830-1917) who migrated to Adelaide in 1854 and became a renown watchmaker and jeweller. Heinrich Ludwig Vosz (1812-1886) who arrived in Adelaide in 1848, set up as a cabinetmaker and joiner, and was involved in the establishment of water-supply and drainage system of Adelaide. He owned a hardware store and was the first to manufacture paint in Australia. Very less is know about the other two signatories, Carl Georg Balk (1834-1876) arrived to Australia in 1854, emigrated from Syke bei Bremen and became a merchant and Theodore(?) Bütefisch came from Rendsburg and was also a merchant in Adelaide. The brochure was reviewed in the contemporary German geographical journal, the Globus, in 1876 (Karl, A.). According to the article it was distributed in Germany for free, to facilitate the emigration to South Australia because of the need of railway workers. The review doubts the reliability of its content and warns that the prices of the basic goods in Australia are more expensive than in Germany in contrary to what the publication claims. The work has been listed among the current German geographical publications in 1875 (Koner, W.). In Ferguson's Bibliography of Australia only the second, revised edition, published in 1876, could be found, and we could trace only a copy of this, second edition in institutional holding, at the State Library of South Australia.

        DESPERATE REMEDIES

      1874. A Novel. New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1874. Endpaper ads dated March 17th, 1874. Original cream cloth decorated in black. First American Edition of Hardy's first book, being a volume in the "Leisure Hour Series" of Henry Holt. Though this was his first book published in England (anonymously, in 1871), it was his third to be published in America, after UNDER THE GREENWOOD TREE and A PAIR OF BLUE EYES. This three-year delay is noteworthy in that "Hardy was permitted to make certain revisions in the text for this edition" [Purdy].~This copy has the endpaper ads in the first state, dated March 17, 1874 (the month of publication); also, it is in the first binding state (cream rather than mustard yellow cloth). Very good-plus condition (as usual for this light-colored cloth there is minor cover soil, but there is very little wear). Quite an uncommon volume (the English three-decker is truly rare). Purdy p. 5.

Being the Illustrated Ballad List which, with 'Ye Lady of Leedes Castle,' is designed as a Companion Volume to ye Ballad Book. Saynte 'Pancredge' [i.e. St Pancras, London]. Set Up and Ymprynted att "Ye Rochester Press," by Master Camden Crookedstaff, himself. Fifteen copies only. 1875; [3] Addenda. The Private Printer, His Ballad Book. [No publisher, no date (1875?)]. §COPAC: Bodleian only for the first two parts; the Addenda does not appear to be held anywhere. §Bertram Dobell in his Catalogue of Books printed for Private Circulation (1906) has this to say: 'This is perhaps the most curious production of Mr. Roffe's Press. It consists chiefly of a collection of titles of Catnach ballads which it was Mr. Roffe's desire to reproduce. Extracts are given from the ballads, and the book is interspersed with a number of humorous and grotesque woodcuts. Though I am not prepared to say that this work has much value as literature, I do think that any one with the least tincture of the bibliomania will value it for its oddity and quaintness.' Front free endpaper bears the following pencilled inscription in what must be Roffe's hand: ' "The Private Printer his ballad Book," "Catnach Garland", &c[.] 15 copies only printed. All written, set up and printed by Edwin Roffe, 48 [illegible] Street, St. Pancras, at the Rochester Press" 1874-5.' Original blue boards with white paper spine (latter darkened, and titled in ink). Endpapers tanned, but otherwise clean internally. Spine ends showing some wear and fragility . In other respects a very good copy. (Additional images available on request). §An attractively-printed curiosity from this eccentric publisher whose press was active from the late 1850s onwards, producing similarly tiny runs; the whereabouts of only one other of the 15 copies manufactured (and that seemingly lacking the third part) currently known.

        THE FROZEN DEEP AND OTHER STORIES .

      Richard Bentley and Son, London 1874 - Octavo, two volumes: [i-vii] viii [1-3] 4-5 [6] 7-10 [11] 12-248; [1-2] [i-v] vi [1-3] 4-282 [283-284: blank], original brown cloth, front panels stamped in black, spine panels stamped in gold, rear panels stamped in blind, top edges untrimmed, pale yellow coated endpapers with publisher's ads, First edition. Collects three short novels, "The Frozen Deep," "The Dream Woman: A Mystery, in Four Narratives," and "John Jago's Ghost; or, the Dead Alive." First book appearance of Collins's rewritten narrative version of "The Frozen Deep," originally written in collaboration with Charles Dickens as a play in 1856. "The Dream Woman: A Mystery, in Four Narratives," is one of Collins's best horror stories. This version of "The Dream Woman" (Collins's third and most effective) is an expansion of "The Ostler," first published in the Christmas issue of HOUSEHOLD WORDS for 1855, and "Brother Morgan's Story of the Dream Woman" collected in THE QUEEN OF HEARTS published by Hurst and Blackett in 1859. "The final version of "The Dream Woman" [is] well worth the effort of tracking down . The story's climax is unsurpassed in the author's work." - Bleiler (ed), Supernatural Fiction Writers: Fantasy and Horror, p. 237. "John Jago's Ghost" is a crime story based on one of the most famous murder cases in nineteenth-century American criminal law. Two brothers confessed to a murder they did not commit and, based on circumstantial evidence, were convicted and sentenced to death. At the last moment, the mentally deranged alleged victim was found alive. He had apparently wandered off of his own volition. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 408a.

        NILE TRIBUTARIES OF ABYSSINIA AND THE SWORD HUNTERS OF THE HAMRAN ARABS

      London: Macmillan, 1874. A very early printing in one volume format, issued shortly after the original printing. With a Frontispiece colour map, 24 wood-engraved plates from the author’s own sketches and a colour folding map. 8vo, very handsomely presented in a contemporary binding of three-quarter red morocco over red pebbled cloth covered boards, the spine with gilt stippled raised bands multi-ruled in gilt, additional gilt work at the head and tail, gilt lettering in one compartment, endpapers and page edges marbled. xix, 413, 44 pages of ads. A fine and very handsome copy in all, internally unusually bright and fresh, free of foxing and very clean, the binding sturdy and very well preserved, the spine bright and with very little evidence of age or use. SCARCE, AND ONE OF THE SEMINAL WORKS ON THE EXPLORATION OF THE NILE SOURCES. THIS COPY VERY HANDSOMELY BOUND. Baker, Burton, and Speke had by this time finally proved (or so they thought) that the source of the White Nile lay in the Lakes Albert and N'yanza. In this volume Baker traces his discovery of the sources of the lower Nile in the Atbara River and the Blue Nile in Abyssinia (present day Ethiopia and Somalia). “The value of the work of exploration during this fourteen months' journey and of the observations proving the Nile sediment to be due to the Abyssinian tributaries was publicly recognised by... [the] Royal Geographical Society. Baker had also during the period gained for himself experience as an explorer, mastered Arabic, and acquired the use of astronomical instruments." (DNB).Samuel Baker’s discovery of the Albert N'yanza, the origin of the Nile, was fundamentally one of the most significant discoveries of the 19th century and certainly the most important of Baker’s long and illustrious career. The importance of the debate over the source of the Nile, combined with Baker's very readable writing style, made his books enormously popular, with the result that they were reprinted a great many times over the following years.

Edition originale de cet ouvrage, le plus célèbre de son auteur, qui renferme les principales idées de Gobineau. Il rédigea son ouvrage de 1871 à 1873, d'après ses souvenirs de diplomate. Le succès de ce roman vint bien tardivement, mais après la Grande Guerre, il fut réédité trois fois. Joint une lettre autographe de l'auteur signée adressée à Charles d'Héricault: ".Mille remerciements de ce que vous voulez bien me dire pour les Pléïades. J'en suis tout à fait reconnaissant. Il est d'ailleur naturel que tout ce qui est publié soit sujet aux différentes opinions, impressions et manière de voir de ceux qui lisent. Vous me parlez de la critique de M. De Montmann sur mes pierres gravées dont il pense que 5 ou 6 sont fabriquées récemment. M. De Montmann est un brave homme, ancien ministre de Hambourg à Constantinople qui aime à mettre dans les journaux des notices de ce genre sur les collections de médailles et autres. Quand on li répond il est très contane. Mais je ne lui ai pas donné ce plaisir. Mille respects à Madame d'Héricault." Gobineau eut un échange de correspondance avec l'historien et critique Charles d'Héricault pendant de longues années. Sa collection de médailles qu'il nommait "son cabinet" à la mode du dix-huitième siècle, était réputée.et jalousée ! [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD. In Two Volumes. (First Edition in Original Cloth, the Celebrated Jerome Kern Copy Sold at Anderson Galleries in New York on January 10th, 1929)

      Smith, Elder, London 1874 - Hardy, Thomas. FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD. In Two Volumes. Twelve wood-engraved Illustrations by Helen Paterson including frontispiece. London: Smith, Elder, 1874. FIRST BOOK EDITION published in November 1874, one of an edition of 1,000 copies. 8vo. This is the Jerome Kern copy (sold Anderson Galleries, New York, 1929) later acquired by famed New York City collector Charles Auchincloss (sold Parke-Bernet, New York, 1961), bookplates of both distinguished collectors in each volume, an ideal provenance. VERY GOOD INDEED in original publisher's green diagonal fine-ribbed cloth, lettered in bright gilt with two vignettes in black on upper covers, original chocolate endpapers. Volume One is mildly abraded at the top of the cloth spine; it also has a cracked front inner hinge and the outer hinge on the rear cover has a thin fingernail split. Volume Two has a spot of wear to one spine corner but is otherwise in excellent condition. For the Thomas Hardy collector, a sharp and fresh copy of FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD, Hardy's first success and the seminal work which gave name to his fictional Wessex, is cause for celebration; it is nearly as hard to find in acceptable original condition as his notoriously rare anonymous first novel DESPERATE REMEDIES and remains, after nearly a century, the most desired and sought after first edition of all fourteen Hardy novels. There is only one recorded inscribed first edition of Far From The Madding Crowd and precious few auction records for copies of this quality. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Purdy pp. 13-18. Sadleir 1105. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
