Victor Hugo
Paris: Michel Levy Freres, Editeurs, 1875. Worn hardback (see photo) with front cover re-attached (securely). Mild to modest foxing and toning first and last few pages while majority of pages very good to fine. In fact so many remain uncut that it seems this copy is yet to be read. PLEASE NOTE: the book is entirely in FRENCH and I can neither read or write FRENCH. Be sure to view all photos. U.S. addresses and buyers ONLY. This is a major item of a towering figure in world literature and I think it fair to say world history. Victor Hugo, wrote The Hunchback of Notre-Dame (French: Notre-Dame de Paris) in 1831 that is said to have generated the interest and passion to restore and preserve The Cathedral of Notre-Dame. He probably is best known for his large, major novel Les Miserables that was published in 1862. One of the great novels of the century (or any century). And also a document in fierce defense of social justice, especially of the poor, forgotten, down trodden and miserable of society. Hugo became such a beloved figure that more than two million people joined his funeral procession in Paris. He is well worth looking up if you don't know much about him. He was a strong advocate for a United States of Europe. Elimination of the death penalty, free universal education for all children. He went into exile for many years. When he returned towards the end of his life his speeches and other documents were published. This is the first of the years 1841-1851 before exile. 509 pages plus the table of contents at the back (that I have photographed). The first major question co … [Click Below for Full Description]

Louis Rousselet
London: India and its Native Princes by Louis Rousselet J.S. Virtue & Co Limited 1875 The book was written by Louis-Théophile Marie Rousselet (1845-1929), a French traveller, writer and photographer, and first published by Hachette in 1875. This English edition was revised and edited by Lieut.-Col Buckle and published and printed by J.S. Virtue & Co., Limited and Virtue & Co., Limited. The large quarto contains 317 black and white wood-engraved plates and text illustrations, 3 coloured lithographed and 3 black and white maps. It also comprises a half-title page, frontispiece, title and dedication pages in black and red, preface, contents, vocabulary of Indian terms, lists of illustrations, full-page engravings and maps, and features decorative initials at the beginning of each chapter. An original red pebble-grained cloth is adorned on the front board and spine with blocked ornate decoration tooled in gilt and embossed with red and black design. Central and spine cartouches are inscribed with an exotic lettering in gold and black and surrounded by gilt sprigs of stylised flowers, leaves and wavy stems, pointillé dots and octagonal raised arabesques with filigree scrolls. Elegant dentelle and fillet borders complete a harmonious composition. A back board is framed with embossed floral and plain fillets. This richly decorated binding is reminiscent of Indian traditional patterns and calligraphy. I believe that the India and its Native Princes published by J.S. Virtue & Co Limited is a rare first English edition with a very short noncommercial print run dating back to 1875. Co … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gunther, Albert
Taylor and Francis, London, 1875. VERY SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST SYSTEMATIC SURVEY OF GIANT TORTOISES by Albert Gunther of the British Museum, complete with Gunther's 13 accompanying plates. In all, the volume, inclusive of Parts I & II of Volume 165, includes 68 plates]. Gunther was "the first to dispel the notion that there was only one giant tortoise species in the whole world. There are, he stated, two general populations of giant tortoise: one restricted to the Indian Ocean islands, the other to the Galapagos Islands. The morphological distinctions between the two populations are clear. Never again should the world's giant tortoise population be referred to under the single name of Testudo indica. [Gunther also stated] that within the tortoise populations of the Indian Ocean and Galapagos Islands, it was possible to detect a number of distinctive species. Gunter had divided the once all-encompassing nomenclature of Testudo indica into at least eight species, three in the Indian Ocean and five in the Galapagos" (Chambers, A Sheltered Life: The Unexpected History of the Giant Tortoise, 137). "Gunther's 1875 monograph was to be the foundation for a new era of research on giant tortoises. He had stamped out some of the myths that had been rattling around the scientific community for over half a century. Because of his careful observations and measurements, there could now be no doubt that the giant tortoises were more diverse and endemic than anyone, other than perhaps Darwin, had hitherto expected" (ibid).

JONES, J William
D. Appleton. 1875 1ed Robert E Lee Civil WAR Reminiscences Letters Illustrated Portraits CSA "The education of a man is never completed until he dies." Robert E. Lee According to the author himself, he did not propose to add another Life of Lee to the several that have already been given but rather give to all a higher appreciation of his noble character. (Jones, Personal Reminiscences, preface). William Jones provides a unique look into the military career of Robert E. Lee by focusing on the character and his persona during a time of war. Character traits such as his hospitality, determination, care for others, love of family, and his, ironic, distaste for war. The correspondence featured in this book are letters to and from family, important military figures such as General Longstreet and General U.S. Grant, as well as first-hand accounts of Lee s last days and funeral. This book should not replace the many Life of Lee titles in a collection or library but should be considered a supplemental and insightful addition. This edition includes 19 full-page engravings, including six portraits on steel. Item number: #9780 Price: $599 JONES, J William Personal reminiscences, anecdotes, and letters of Gen. Robert E.

Berlin: Verlag der Königlichen Geheimen Ober-Hofdruckerei (R. von Decker), 1875. Berlin: Verlag der Königlichen Geheimen Ober-Hofdruckerei (R. von Decker),, 1875. Hardcover. Near fine/very good. A Near Fine copy of The Songs of Mirza-Schaffy with a Prologue by the German writer, translator, and critic Friedrich von Bodenstedt (1819-1892), in the Publisher's original blue boards with the front board and spine lettered and decorated in gilt and with all edges of the closed page block in gilt as well (some lean to the left, tiny push to the top edge of several pages). Being not only a beautiful copy but also a RARE one, the book wears its RARE original dust jacket and its EVEN RARER underjacket. (The dust jacket shows multiple tears as well as some chipping and a few tape repairs -- apparently archival -- to the verso, and the underjacket has been bifurcated and shows general wear as well.) First published in 1851, this collection of poems, written in an Oriental style, was instantly successful. In producing this book, Von Bodenstedt translated poems by Azerbaijani and Persian Poets (although he later sought to pass them off as his own work.) Per Wikipedia: "The success of this work can only be compared with that of Edward FitzGerald's Omar Khayyám, produced in somewhat similar circumstances, but differed from it in being immediate. It has gone through 160 editions in Germany, and has been translated into almost all literary languages. The celebrity is not undeserved, for although Bodenstedt does not attain the poetical elevation of FitzGerald, his translation conveys a … [Click Below for Full Description]

In 1872 he led an epic expedition from Adelaide, crossing the arid centre of Australia, to the coast of Western Australia via Alice Springs. The expedition suffered great privations, due to extreme summer heat, meaning they could only travel at night, and loss of provisions. Many of their camels died within a few months. During the final stages Warburton was so weak he had to be carried prone on one of the surviving camels. He also lost the sight in one eye. Warburton was so weakend by the hardships suffered on the journey that he had neither 'health nor desire' to complete a narrative o … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUDSLEY, GEORGE ASHDOWN, AND BOWES, J
LONDON AND LIVERPOOL,, 1875 Published by HENRY SOTHERAN, LONDON Binding: HARD BACK BLUE Size: 12 X 16 173 Pages Overall Condition is: VERY GOOD ELEPHANT FOLIOS, 12 INCHES X 16 INCHES, BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL CONDITION 6 raised ribbed leather spine and boards Fine gilt tooling to edges and inside margin of boards. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt, rubricrated title page, headings, etc. A superb example of Victorian book design and production. This was the first major study in English of Japanese ceramic art, which attempted the then unique task of classifying all known varieties of the porcelain of Japan. The author, George Audsley, was a well-known architect and authority on the decorative arts, particularly those of Japan, as was Bowes, who went on to write a number of works on the subject. The great majority of plates in The Keramic Art of Japan are full colour chromolithographs (produced by the art-printers Firmin-Didot et Cie, of Paris) and show a quality - particularly in the reproduction of the gilt work - unrivalled in most quality art books today. It is truly not an overstatement to say that each of the plates is an artwork in itself. As always the title page bears the date 1875, whereas the Preface is dated 1879, presumably a reflection of the amount of time that it took to bring this magnificent work into print. The text begins with a general study of Japanese Art, then a specific essay on Japanese Ceramics, followed by essays on Hizen Wares, Satsuma Faience, Kioto Wares, Kaga Wares, and Owari Wares, followed by a list of examples, linking each type to a number of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

GREAVES, Walter (British, 1846-1930)
London. Oil on board. Signed and dated 'W. Greaves 1875' (lower left). Framed. Provenance: The Rosenbach Museum & Library (ex-Christie's, June 22, 2011, Lot 162) Christie's notes re. 26 January 2011, lot 233 (a full-length portrait). 'Walter Greaves was the son of a Chelsea boat builder and, along with his brother Henry, devotees of James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903). They first met Whistler when he moved to Cheyne Walk in 1863 and the three became inseparable friends for the next twenty years. While the brothers taught Whistler to row, he encouraged them to draw and paint, insisting that they describe themselves as the 'Pupils of Whistler'. The relationship was an extraordinary clash of cultures. Whistler was the sophisticated cosmopolitan, widely traveled and an exponent of the latest artistic fashions. The lives of the Greaves brothers, on the other hand, were entirely bounded by Chelsea, and their paintings were as primitive as Whistler's were à la mode. But the friendship worked. He liked the Greaveses and described them as 'a sort of Peggotty family', patronizingly but not unkindly, and certainly accurately. The present picture is dated [.1875], but this should be treated with caution. Tom Pocock writes, in his definitive account of the relationship between Whistler and Greaves, Chelsea Reach, of Walter's 'extraordinary vagueness about dates', and warns that the dates on his pictures and drawings 'were sometimes added years later, and could be wrong by five or ten years'. Even if . [1875] is correct, we still cannot be quite sure where the scene is set, since Walter o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Socin studierte seit 1862 an den Universitäten in Basel, Genf, Göttingen und Leipzig orientalische Sprachen. Nach seiner Promotion in Halle 1867 hielt er sich noch ein Jahr an der Berliner Universität auf. Zwischen 1868 und 1870 lebte Socin im Orient, wo er, zum Teil zusammen mit Eugen Prym (1843–1913), wichtige Forschungen zu den arabischen Dialekten, über das moderne Syrisch und die kurdische Sprache machte. 1871 habilitierte sich Socin in Basel und wurde dort 1873 zum ausserordentlichen Professor ernannt. Im selben Jahr unternahm er eine zweite wissenschaftliche Reise nach Palästina und nach Syrien. 1876 wurde er als ordentlicher Professor an die Universität Tübingen und 1890 an diejenige von Leipzig berufen. 1891 wurde er als ordentliches Mitglied in die Königlich Sächsische Ges … [Click Below for Full Description]

F.O. Vaille and H.A. Clark
Welch, Bigelow, and Company, University Press, Cambridge, 1875. Complete in two volumes. Hardcover in original pebbled cloth over boards. University emblem is gilt stamped on top covers. [Folio or approx. 12 x 19 inches], Vol 1 346pp., Illus., 33 heliotypes, 57 illustrations, 24 wood engravings, 3 lithographs. Vol 2 447pp., illus., 26 heliotype views, 24 wood engravings. Frederick O. Vaille and Henry Alden Clark first compiled The Harvard Book in 1875 as a souvenir for fellow members of the Harvard College classes of 1874 and 1875. A comprehensive history of campus life to 1875, the book describes Harvard's academic mission customs, building, organizations, and prominent faculty and alumni. 30 fine full page heliotypes, two lithographs and a copper engraving by Paul Revere, struck from the original plate. "The Harvard Book" stands pre-eminently apart from the other histories of the University. It comprises two large quarto volumes, making upwards of eight hundred pages, printed on fine paper, with press-work as good as the University Press of Cambridge could do. The type used was new, and every line shows the handiwork of a competent and careful pressman. In many respects the illustrations make it the best-illustrated book published in this country prior to 1875. The views of the then-existing buildings and the portraits are heliotype photographs, giving certainly the most accurate pictures possible; and the prints, it is said, will permanently retain their original appearance. The subjects of the illustrations include almost every thing to be looked for in any illustrated … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leo Tolstoy
Moscow: 1875. Anniroc Rare Books ___ First appearance in print of one of the greatest and most revered novels of all time. Anna Karenina in Russkiy Vestnik(The Russian Herald) Leo Tolstoy Moscow, 1875-77 The iconic novel was serialized in 13 installments starting in January 1875. This copy was created by a devoted reader who removed all the parts containing the story from all 13 issues of the journal and bound them into this single volume. Contemporary half-morocco, rebacked preserving the original gilt spine[owner name also in gilt at the bottom in Polish(?)]. Sporadic ink marks throughout with heavier ones on the first and last few leaves, some general staining and rubbing, some water stains mainly on the later pages. Sections of text not from Anna Karenina are covered in paper. Overall, Very Good and a crazy survival. Housed in a splendid, red half-morocco box with gilt tooled spine.

[448]-460. Due to a political disagreement between Tolstoy and the conservative journal's publisher, Mikhail Katkov, the last part of the story was never printed. Even the excerpt from the May 1877 issue containing the editor's notes on the non-publication of Part VIII is loosely laid in at the rear of the book - another testament to this compiler's comprehensive dedication to amass … [Click Below for Full Description]
