      8vo., (6) 258pp., including the half-title, and with a 16-page Tinsley catalogue dated September, 1875, at end, the first three leaves (including the title-page) rather foxed, dampstain on front endpapers, in the original gilt cloth binding, dampstain at foot of upper boards, head and foot of spine neatly repaired. A good copy nonetheless, with the bookplates on front pastedown of R.C. Hyde and Max Salomon. "An eutopia founded by a geometrician" [Lyman Tower Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature 1516-1975, 1979, p.31]. An utopian novel of sorts, but not well regarded either then or now, set on an imaginary island in the North Sea. "We shall speak quite plainly about the author of Etymonia. He does not seem to possess any imagination or sagacity, or indeed, any ability, literary or other. How, then, does he try to interest his readers? By following Sir Robert Walpole's advice. The one talk, that cynical old man of the world was wont to say, in which all men can join, is indecent talk. And the author of Etymonia treats his readers as Sir Robert used to treat his guests. A very great part of this book is discreditable to both author and publisher". [The Spectator Archive]. * Authorship not agreed. Sargent suggests Davis, others put it all down to the publisher himself.

        A collection of 36 theosophical pamphlets.

      Founded in 1875 by spiritualist Helena Blavatsky, occultist William Quan Judge, Colonel Henry Steel Olcott, and others in New York City, the Theosophical Society aims to promote the study of comparative religions and the occult. After Blavatsky's death in 1891, the society split in 1895 into two groups -- one led by Judge in the United States and another led by Olcott and Annie Besant in India. This collection of pamphlets, published by the latter, contains excerpts of texts written by the Judge, Blavatsky, Damodar Mavalankar, Annie Besant, and Koot Hoomi. => A list is available on request. Provenance: Bookplate of the United Lodge of Theosophists, Ottawa, Ontario, tucked into each volume; several pamphlet wrappers and a few pages of text with library stamps from theosophical institutions. Evidence of Readership: Underlining or other markings in a number of the pamphlets in very neat ink and pencil, sometimes colored.

Clotilde. Is it not / yet in operation./ Yours respectfully, / Wilfrid Laurier."[WITH:]PITTAWAY & JARVIS, Photographers, Ottawa. Hon. Wilfrid Laurier. [Ottawa, ca. 1890's] Original photograph,head and shoulder portrait, very good condition. Both pieces matted together, fine condition. History of Arthabaska: The name of Arthabaska was suggested at the end of the eighteenth century, by John Gregory, fur trader, probably in honor of a vast lake in western Canada, where he worked for North Company. Cree language in the Athabaska word means "where there are rushes and reeds." In 1853 the City of Arthabaska is founded under the name of Saint-Christophe-d'Arthabaska. In 1858, the township of Arthabaska consists judicial district after the construction of the railway. In 1861, a portion of the town was detached and was named Victoriaville. In 1890, Sainte-Victoire-d'Arthabaska is formed as a result of a new detachment. Later, in the late nineteenth century, there detach the village of Arthabaskaville, completely surrounded by St. Kitts d'Arthabaska. In 1903, the city becomes Arthabaskaville Arthabaska. Finally, in 1993, three localities or Victoriaville, Arthabaska and Saint-Victoire-d'Arthabaska, come together to form the current city. In the new city, the population chose the name Victoriaville for the new city. Arthabaskaville has always distinguished itself as a village culture. Here born painter Marc-Aurèle De Foy Suzor-Côté and many Quebec celebrities settle in Arthabaskaville, including the member Armand Lavergne, the poet Adolphe Poisson or the Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier.Wilfrid Laurier (1841-1919) was Canada's eighth Prime Minister, holding office 1896-1911.

Wilfrid Laurier was Liberal party leader from 1887 until his death in 1919.Donald Alexander Macdonald was a businessman, politician, and office holder. He became a railway contractor and was elected as a member of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Canada from 1857 to 1867. He was the Liberal Member of Parliament for Glengarry in the Canadian House of Commons from 1867 to 1875, and served as Postmaster General of Canada.

        Paypyros Ebers. Das hermetische Buch über die Arzneimittel der alten Ägypter in hieratischer Schrift. 2 Bde.

      - Neudruck der Ausgabe Leipzig 1875. - Osnabrück, Biblio Verlag 1987, Folio, VIII, 336 pp., Taf. 1-69; VIII, 63, (1) pp., Taf.70-90, orig. Leinenband. Herausgegeben von Georg Ebers mit hieroglyphisch-lateinischem Glossar von Ludwig Stern. - Als Vorlage für den Nachdruck hat freundlicherweise die Handschriftenabteilung der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek ihr Exemplar zur Verfügung gestellt. - Schon im Papyrus selber fehlen die Seiten XXVIII und XXIX, ohne daß der Text unterbrochen ist. - Already in the papyrus itself the pages XXVIII and XXIX are not numbered. There is, however, no text omitted. - Printed in France by Folio Imprimerie Cooperative, Saint-Julien-du-Sault. - - "Der Papyrus Ebers ist ein medizinischer Papyrus aus dem alten Ägypten. Er gehört neben dem Papyrus Edwin Smith zu den ältesten noch erhaltenen Texten überhaupt und ist zudem einer der ältesten bekannten Texte mit medizinischen Themen, wobei er unter anderem ein großes Spektrum an Beschreibungen von Krankheiten und deren Symptomen und Diagnosen beinhaltet. Des Weiteren enthält der Papyrus Anweisungen für Behandlungen sowie für die Zubereitung von Heilmitteln, zum Beispiel gegen Verletzung, Parasiten und Zahnbeschwerden, aber auch gynäkologische Tipps, wie beispielsweise für die Empfängnisverhütung. Dazu werden Zaubersprüche zur Unterstützung des Heilerfolges angegeben. Zusätzlich wurde der heliakische Aufgang des Sirius im bürgerlichen Kalender mit 9. Epiphi (9. Ipip) im 9. Regierungsjahr des Amenophis I. vermerkt." - - "Traditionell wurde meist von einer Abfassung im letzten Viertel des 16. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. ausgegangen und auf die Datierung von Richard Lepsius Bezug genommen. Letzter Vertreter dieser These war Kenneth Anderson Kitchen. Beide Ägyptologen beriefen sich bei ihrer Annahme auf den vermerkten Sirius-Aufgang. Zwischenzeitliche paläografische Untersuchungen haben ergeben, dass die medizinischen Eintragungen wahrscheinlich einige Jahrzehnte älter sind, in der Regierungszeit von Pharao Ahmose niedergeschrieben wurden und mögliche Abschriften von älteren Vorlagen repräsentieren." - - "Der Papyrus Ebers wurde im Winter 1872/73 von Georg Ebers in Theben mit den Geldern des Königs von Sachsen (15.000 Taler) und Geld aus dem Universitäts-Reisestipendienfond (25.000 Taler) erworben, in die Bestände der Universitätsbibliothek Leipzig eingegliedert[1][2] und ein Jahr später von Ebers veröffentlicht. Das Manuskript befindet sich bis heute in der Universitätsbibliothek Leipzig." - - "Er wurde in hieratischer Schrift verfasst und stellt die größte Aufzeichnung über altägyptische Medizin dar. Der Papyrus Ebers ist der längste medizinische Papyrus und hat eine Gesamtlänge von 20 Metern. Die Schriftrolle bestand ursprünglich aus 108 Kolumnen, die von 1 bis 110 nummeriert sind (Nr. 28 und 29 sind ausgelassen). Während des Zweiten Weltkriegs erlitt der Papyrus erheblichen Schaden. So sind die Kolumnen 54, 56, 94 und 109 beschädigt oder liegen nur noch in Fragmenten vor. Die Kolumnen 48, 49, 55, 80-82, 93/110, 98/106, 99, 100/104, 101, 102/103 und 105 sind heute verloren. Die 108 Kolumnen sind unterteilt in 877 magische Formeln und Heilmittel. Obwohl er voller Beschwörungen zur Vertreibung krankheitsverursachender Dämonen ist, finden sich doch Beweise für empirische Behandlung und Beobachtung." - - "Der Papyrus enthält Kapitel über Darm-Erkrankungen und Parasiten, Augen- und Hautprobleme, Empfängnisverhütung und gynäkologische Erkrankungen, Zahnheilkunde, die operative Behandlung von Abszessen und Tumoren, das Richten von Knochen und Verbrennungen. Mit der Erwähnung der Staublunge der Steinmetze ist es mit das älteste Zeugnis der Arbeitsmedizin." - - "Des Weiteren enthält er eine Abhandlung über Herz und Gefäße. Obwohl die Ägypter wenig über die Existenz der Nieren wussten, und das Herz als Treffpunkt verschiedener Gefäße des Körpers - nicht nur Blut, sondern auch Tränen, Urin und sogar Sperma - betrachteten, erkannten sie nicht nur das Vorhandensein von .

Julien Turgan (1824-1887) étudia d?abord la médecine, se signala lors des journées de Juin 1848 et pendant l?épidémie cholérique. Lorsque Victor Hugo fonda cette même année L?Evénement, Turgan entra à ce journal comme rédacteur scientifique, puis il passa au Bien-être universel, feuille créée par M. E. de Girardin, et fonda lui-même un journal de vulgarisation scientifique : La Fabrique, la ferme et l?atelier. M. Grün s?étant retiré du Moniteur universel en 1852, Turgan devint conjointement avec Paul Dalloz, directeur du Journal officiel. Pendant l?invasion prussienne, Turgan se mit à la disposition du ministre de la guerre Gambetta, et fut chargé d?une importante mission auprès des usines de fabrication d'armement. Très rare collection, quasi-complète : seules les 4 dernières livraisons manquent. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Commentaries of the Great Afonso Dalboquerque, Second Viceroy of India.

Original pale blue diapered cloth, title gilt to the spines, gilt ship device to the front boards, repeated on the lower in blind, blind panelling to both boards, blind rules to the spines, pale cream surface-paper endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece to each, and 6 other plates in all, one of them double-page, 6 folding facsimile maps, illustrations to the text. A little rubbed, spines mildly tanned, some neat restoration to the spines, joints and hinges, but overall very good for this poorly produced series, largely unopened First edition, first impression of the first English edition. Afonso d' Albuquerque the Great (1453-1515), was one of the most striking personalities in the history of Portuguese discovery and colonialism and is the founder of the Portuguese Empire in the East Indies. Albuquerque advanced the Portuguese scheme of securing the trade of spices and the establishment of a vast Portuguese Asian empire. He was the first European to enter the Persian Gulf, led the first voyage by a European fleet into the Red Sea, and also the first westerner to reach the coast of South-Eastern Arabia: "In 1506 Albuquerque was despatched from Lisbon on an expedition, intended to consolidate Portuguese supremacy in the Indian Ocean. His instructions were to monopolise trade with East India for Portugal, and to exclude both Venetians and Saracens from Indian waters ... Attacks were made on the Arab ports at Malindi, Hoja, Lamu and Brava, before continuing to Socotra ... Sailing from Socotra with six ships, Albuquerque coasted the Arabian peninsula, sacked Muscat and Sohar, and then launched an attack on Hormuz during the months of September and October 1507. In spite of the overwhelming forces assembled against him by the island's twelve-year-old ruler, Albuquerque mounted a successful siege, with the result that the ruler become a vassal of the Portuguese crown ... The famous 'Commentaries' ... were published by his son Alfonso ..., collected from his father's papers. The only documents actually originating from the father are in the form of letters" (Howgego I, 19-21). Bookplates of the American financier, philanthropist and collector Henry Marquand to the front free endpapers, neat letter-press plates of the library of St. Paul's School, Concord, NH, of which Marquand was a benefactor, to the pastedowns.

        @Revista occidental. @Iº anno, tomo primeiro, fasiculos 1-6, and tomo segundo, fasciculos 1-5 [all published].

      Lisbon, Escriptorio da Revista Occidental, 15 February to 15 July 1875.. FIRST and ONLY EDITION. 11 issues in 2 volumes. Large 8°, original printed wrappers, uncut, in two folding cases with crimson leather spines, gilt with raised bands in five compartments, marbled boards on all other sides. In fine condition. Engraved armorial bookplates of D. Diogo de Bragança (Lafões) on front sides of cases. 768; 639, (1) pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION, a COMPLETE RUN of this rare Portuguese periodical containing the first appearance of @O Crime do Padre Amaro, @[bold]one of the best and most important novels ever written, the first novel written entirely by Eça de Queiroz, and certainly one of his most important works. (@O Mistério da estrada de Sintra, written in collaboration with Ramalho Ortigão, had appeared in 1870.) Eça had serious disagreements with the editors of the Revista, Antero de Quental and Batalha Reis, regarding corrections to his work, and was very dissatisfied with the published result. He substantially revised it for the first edition in book form, published in 1876. The Revista Occidental includes works in Portuguese by such noted authors as Antero de Quental, Manuel de Arriaga, Luciano Cordeiro, Gonçalves Crespo, Oliveira Martins and Gomes Leal, and also works in Spanish by Cánovas del Castillo, Pi y Margall, Jacinto Octavio Picón and Patricio de la Escosura. The rarity of this periodical, especially with all the original wrappers present, has led to some confusion among bibliographers regarding the number of issues and the dates of publication - doubtless mostly because only the original printed wrappers indicate the fascicle number and date of publication. The only published record of an actual copy we have been able to locate, sold in the Fernandes Thomaz sale in 1912, has the same dates of publication as this copy and the same number of issues, and is described as "collecção completa." Two copies handled by us in the early 1990s, one sold in the summer of 2001, and one sold in the summer of 2012, all had the same collation as the present one. @Provenance: Dom Diogo de Bragança (Lafões) (Lisbon, 1930-Lisbon, 2012) was an accomplished equestrian, author of books on dressage, and a dedicated bibliophile whose collection focused on books about horses and horsemanship, plus works on Portuguese history and literature. Dom Diogo used the courtesy title Marquês de Marialva, by permission of his elder brother, Dom Lopo de Bragança, Duque de Lafões, the actual holder of the title. For the bookplate, see Avelar Duarte, @Ex-libris portugueses heráldicos. See also @Anuário da Nobreza de Portugal, III, Tomo I (1985), pp. 20-1. *** Fernandes Thomaz 4352. Guerra da Cal 29: stating that the work appeared from February 1875 to July 1876, in only 7 fascicles. Silva Pereira, @Journalismo portuguesa p. 130: giving the dates of publication as 15 Feb. to 30 Aug. 1875. @Grande enciclopédia XXV, 433: giving the same dates of publication as Silva Pereira. @Union List of Serials locates volume I to volume II, nº 5 (giving the dates as Feb. 1875 to Jan. 1876) at CU. Not located in NUC.
