        The Bosporus and Istanbul.

      [Istanbul], 1875. - Oil on wood. Signed and dated. Framed (455 x 258 mm). Museum-quality panoramic painting of Istanbul with steamships and sailboats on the Golden Horn and the Hagia Sophia in the background. The foreground is dominated by the Grand Vezier Hüseyin Avni Pasha in a coach, escorted by horsemen, surrounded by a crowd. - The Regensburg-born Heinrich Lang, noted painter of horses and battles as well as writer and illustrator, studied with Karl Steffek in Berlin, Friedrich Voltz and Franz Adam in Munich and Adolf Schreyer in Paris. He travelled to Greece and Turkey and proved himself a careful observer of Ottoman costume and culture. His colourful paintings of Turkish tradesmen, camel drivers, donkey-drawn wagons and splendidly decorated carriages show his great attention to detail and were greeted by contemporaries as a much-welcomed relief from the grey military scenes that had dominated the previous years (cf. ADB Ll, 551). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        1875 ANDREAS' ILLUSTRATED HISTORICAL ATLAS of the STATE of IOWA w/ 195 Pages of ENGRAVED MAPS & PLATES - Very Large Folio Atlas

      Chicago: Lakeside Press, 1875. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Fair. A.T. ANDREAS' ILLUSTRATED HISTORICAL ATLAS OF THE STATE OF IOWA 1875. Published by the Lakeside Press, Chicago, 1875. First Edition. Very Large Format Hardcover Book, Elephant Folio 14x18", blind-stamped cloth covered boards, 590 numbered pages (though the printer's pagination is faulty in many spots). Filled with Engraved Maps, City Views, and Other Engraved Illustrations. CONDITION: The covers and spine are in POOR condition. The covers are detached, the spine is completely worn off, there is masking tape on the spine and on the covers' spine margins; additionally, the boards are bowing and rubbed, scraped, and worn through at many places. Internally, there is a previous owner's name/address writ large on the front pastedown; the last 10 pages and the blank free endpaper are in poor condition, with many vertical stiff creases where the book was probably shut on them incorrectly, with the leaf consisting of pages 585/586 disbound and very worn, and with the last signature (last few pages and the rear free endpaper) disbound; the first few pages (the printed title page, frontispiece, and title page) are chipped and worn along their edges and have a significant piece cut from their bottom corner area; otherwise the inner pages and ALL the Maps and Engraved Plates are in generally GOOD to VERY GOOD condition, some have small closed edge tears and edge and corner chips, a couple have a significant closed tear, overall they are solid with sharp edges, and printing that is bright and clear. One of the nicer sets of these plates I have seen. Andreas Atlases are known for poor pagination (unnumbered and improperly numbered plates, sections with no numbers, etc.) This Iowa Atlas is no exception. The pagination shows a variety of missing pages in the Plates section, but I have collated every single plate with the Index and ALL but 4 of the plates called for are present, and my guess is that even the 4 presumably missing plates were never actually in this 1875 printing (though of course I could be wrong). The first Arabic numbered page is page 7 which begins the large section of plates and maps. There are NO pages 1-6, as issued (though there are pages i-viii). PAGINATION (with my added comments): [i] Printed Title Page (the bottom margin has ink pen doodling, the bottom corner area is clipped); [ii] Frontispiece Engraving of Davenport (it also has the clipped corner area); [iii] Illustrated Title Page; [iv] Index; v-vii Index; [viii] Preface; 7-28 (page 7 is the first numbered page after prelim page viii and is the start of the large Engraved Maps and Plates section); 31-68 (leaf consisting of pages 57/58 has a 5" closed tear starting at the bottom edge; page 49 has light brown staining to the bottom area); 71-84; 87-96 (leaf consisting of pages 89/90 with 4" closed tear starting at the bottom edge); 99-100; 103-108 (107/108 with 2" closed tear starting at gutter); 111-112 (2" closed tear starting at bottom edge); 115-118; 121-123 (there are two pages numbered 122); 128-129; 131-138; 141-162 (pages 152-162 have 1" closed tears at their bottom gutter corner); 165-174; 177-190; 193-196; 199-212; 215-218; 221-236; 241-250 (this is the END of the Plates and Maps section). 251-280 (Biographical Sketches); 283-312 (History of Iowa); [313-336] (Post Offices); 341-424 (County Histories); 431-482 (Census. There are 7 pages all numbered 482); 482-536 (Patrons); 541-558 (Statistics); [559-589] 590 (the last 10 pages are in poor condition, with a single page and the last signature disbound, as noted above); Rear Free Endpaper. An actual count of the pages in the Engraved Maps and Plates section (accounting for the very poor printer's pagination) shows a total of 195 PAGES OF ORIGINAL ENGRAVED MAPS AND PLATES, plus the frontispiece and the engraved title page. This ORIGINAL 1875 EDITION, FOLIO SIZE ATLAS of IOWA is SCARCE. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This is a large, heavy book, that will require substantial additional shipping charges.

      Paris: E. Dentu, 1875. First Separate Edition n. Hardcover. 194 x 143 mm (7 5/8 x 5 5/8"). 2 p.l., 171, [1] pp. First Separate Edition. ELEGANT FIN-DE-SIÈCLE BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO BY A. TAFFIN OF PARIS (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with ornate gilt frame of flowers, leaves, and small tools enclosing two inlaid salmon pink morocco bands separated by a gilt chain roll; raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with floral frame, gilt titling, turn-ins lavishly gilt, green silk endleaves, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed, original wrappers bound in. Text within full woodcut inhabited frames, engraved frontispiece, headpiece, and tailpiece, and EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED with 19 engravings in black and white or bistre. Vicaire III, 1056. Spine mildly but uniformly sunned toward a chocolate brown, other trivial imperfections, but A VERY FINE COPY, the extremely pretty decorative binding lustrous and virtually unworn, and the text clean and fresh. This stylish, vaguely Art Nouveau binding adorns a very appealing, extra-illustrated copy of the finely printed and rare first separate edition of a section extracted from the Goncourt's popular and often reprinted, "La Femme au XVIIIe Siècle," which originally appeared in 1862. Only a "petit nombre" of copies were printed, each employing various papers--either Whatman, China, Velin, or Holland--for the text. The present copy is printed on Whatman paper and is wonderfully extra-illustrated with plates often gallant in nature and all from 18th century artists. We know little of our binder, Taffin, who eluded Beraldi and all of the other standard sources on bindings. In the early 20th century he appears to have partnered with Lefort, as we have seen bindings signed "Taffin-Lefort" from that period. Beyond that we can only admire the craft invested in this fashionable design. It may be that the relationship of our authors, the brothers Edmund and Jules Goncourt (1822-96, 1830-70), was unique in literary history. They authored all their books jointly, and they apparently spent every day of their adults lives together until Jules' death. Their books, whether fiction or non-fiction, intimately explored the literary and social life of France in their time. They are buried together within the same grave, inseparable through eternity. Their estate established the Académie Goncourt, which since 1903 has awarded the Prix Goncourt, arguably the most prestigious literary prize in French literature. This work is seldom seen in the marketplace, and virtually never with extra-illustrations.

        A Silent Witness.

      London; Tinsley Brothers. 1875 - First editions. 3 Volumes, 8vo. Author's own copy. Bound in exceptionally smart contemporary royal blue half morocco over marbled boards by Zaehnsdorf, top edge gilt. Gilt titles and decorations to spines. An elegant and stylish bit of high-end late Victorian book binding. Very good indeed. Internally clean, minor spotting to page edges. Marbled endpapers, bearing the author's bookplate to front pastedowns. Now mostly forgotten, Yates was a contemporary and correspondant of Dickens who made a lucrative and popular living penning racy melodramatic murder mysteries, guarenteed in a contemporary review to have "A murder or two in volume one, bigamy in the second, a suicide in the third." Which, all in all, sounds like a nice break from Geordie Shore. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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.

      London, 1875- 1887. - FIRST EDITIONS of 22 titles bound in 31 volumes. Attractive contemporary binding by Bradstreet's of deep red half morocco, marbled boards and end papers, top edges gilt. Bookplate to all volumes. Pages edges slightly age toned. A superb set. The set comprises all the books, fiction and non fiction, published during Jefferies' lifetime, as well as 2 titles posthumously published, Field and Hedgerow (1889) and The Toilers of the Fields (1892). John) Richard Jefferies (1848-1887) is best known for his prolific and sensitive writing on natural history, rural life and agriculture in late Victorian England. However, a closer examination of his career reveals a many-sided author who was something of an enigma. To some people he is more familiar as the author of the children's classic Bevis or the strange futuristic fantasy After London (the central theme of which is unstoppable nature reclaiming its birthright after the collapse of civilisation), while he also has some reputation as a mystic worthy of serious study. Since his death his books have enjoyed intermittent spells of popularity, but today he is unknown to the greater part of the reading public. Jefferies, however, has been an inspiration to a number of more prominent writers and W.H. Hudson, Edward Thomas, Henry Williamson and John Fowles are among those who have acknowledged their debt to him. In my view his greatest achievement lies in his expression, aesthetically and spiritually, of the human encounter with the natural world – something that became almost an obsession for him in his last years (Simon Coleman) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Spirits' Book

      London: Trubner and Company, 1875. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. First British edition. Four page letter from Anna Blackwell to American spirtualist Charles Blackburn tipped-in at front. Good condition with some marginal notes and underlinings in pencil and pen, cloth worn at edges. Letter is a bit frayed at edges with a few underlines from a later owner. Inscribed with the translator's compliments to Blackburn on the leaf following the ffep. (Two other later owner's names are there as well.) Blackwell's tipped-in letter is from Pas-de-Calais, France, dated July 9, 1875. She thanks him for his support during a spate of problems for spiritualists in France such as the imprisonment of Leymarie. She then thanks him for paying for the frontispiece's engraving, discusses other Kardec translations in the works, and explains the American publishing arrangements with Colby & Rich and her payment of 10% per book sold. Anna Blackwell would go on to publish poetry and apparently correspond with Edgar Allan Poe, although she would later, mysteriously, deny it.

        Piezorhynchus Brown (Brown's Flycatcher)

      London 1875 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor, from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became and expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was about to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. While is Papua New Guinea, he decided to embark on a final folio as a complement to his unprecedented Birds of Asia. The Birds of New Guinea was Gould's last full-scale work, left incomplete on his death in 1881. Gould completed twelve of the twenty-five parts, and the task of finishing the project fell to Richard Bowdler Sharpe, a superbly qualified successor, who had been Gould's colleague, assistant and friend. One of Gould's most exotic works, the five magnificent volumes of the Birds of New Guinea contain an extensive series of beautiful images of birds of paradise, bower birds, parrots, parakeets, cockatoos, kingfishers and hawk-owls. All of the 320 images are extraordinary for their color and artistry, interesting backdrops and animated compositions. Gould and Sharpe created some of their most engaging and active scenes of bird life in the Birds of New Guinea, and the great popular reception of the work was such that it was one of their only productions that led to a sequel, Sharp's Birds of Paradise (1891-98). Missing from that later production, however, was the almost overwhelming variety of species of the Birds of New Guinea, which, like the Birds of Asia, was the most comprehensive chronicle of the island's ornithology ever issued. This folio size, hand-colored lithograph, Piezorhynchus Brown, measures 21.5" x 14.75" and is in excellent condition. The birds illustrated, commonly called Brown's Flycatchers, are expertly hand-colored in deep shades of blue with brilliant white accenting the neck, wings, bellies and wingtips. The fine lines and detailing define the plumage of the birds and the patterns of feathers on their bodies. These birds are placed within a lush background, resting on a branch along the waterside.

Fort Lincoln, Dakota Territory, March 31 [1875?]. To Major [John] Carland. Two mounting remnants on top edge verso with no show through, minor pinholes at folds. Fine condition.""Fort Lincoln DT March 31. Major Carland. As his employer will be arrested on similar charge look closely to Hannons bondsmen. I have seized several government missiles concealed near Apple Creek by Bmrk [Bismarck]. Cause his arrest also on this charge and scrutinized his bondsmen closely - If he could be placed here for safe keeping by the Marshall I think information of value could be obtained ...""Although the year is not given in the letter, the incident probably occurred during the spring of 1875, about the same time that grain stores began disappearing steadily from Fort Lincoln. With justice still being dispensed pell-mell in the chaotic frontier town of Bismarck, and under orders not to make arrests outside the military reservation, Custer was hampered in his efforts to stop the robberies. Assisted by his friend Major John Carland, an officer with the 6th Infantry who had formerly worked as a lawyer, Custer was determined to root out every thieving culprit. Here he tells Carland that he has ""seized several government missiles [cannon balls, ammunition] concealed near Apple Creek"" and speculates that if the man sought by Carland ""could be placed here [Bismarck] for safe keeping by the Marshall, I think information of value could be obtained.""During the planning of the Battle of the Little Big Horn, Custer told Major Carland that he did not want the support of the 2nd Cavalry and Gatling guns because ""I want all the glory for the 7th."" Shortly after the June 25-26, 1876, battle, a column of troops under Gen. Alfred H. Terry's command arrived. Carland was in Terry's column. It was Carland and Terry who discovered Custer's body on the battlefield.Provenance: Sotheby's, November 1, 1993, lot 43."

        Cabinet Card Photograph of a Woman by a St. Louis Professional Woman Photographer

      St. Louis: Mrs. J.H. Fitzgibbon, Photographer. [circa 1875]. Measuring 4.5" x 6" image on a very slightly larger card with the back mark of Mrs. Fitzgibbon and her studio address on Olive Street in St. Louis. Slight wear, just about fine. Nicely composed image of an unidentified woman, possibly an actress, in a fancy, Little Bo Peep-esque outfit adorned with a large show hat.Louisa M. Dennis of Buffalo, New York (later Mrs. J.H. Fitzgibbon) founded the St. Louis studio with her husband in 1869. She took over the studio on Olive Street in 1875 when her husband retired; he died in the sleeping car of a train in 1882. At about that time she sold the studio and in 1883 founded the long-running photographic journal The St. Louis Photographer (which took over from The Practical Photographer which she and her husband had founded upon his retirement) and which conducted business under that name until 1887, when it became The St. Louis and Canadian Photographer, which ran until 1910 or later. She later remarried and conducted business as Mrs. Fitzgibbon-Clark.John H. Fitzgibbon, was a pioneering photographer. He took up photography in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1839 upon the announcement of the Daguerrian process. He later set up a studio in St. Louis, and then still later in Vicksburg, Mississippi, where he was caught trying to run the blockade during the Civil War in order to flee the city and was sent to Cuba. After the War he was returned to New York City, where he met and married Louisa M. Dennis. At the time of his death a contemporary periodical note the he was "the oldest photographer in the country, save one" (at age 65!).A nice image by an entrepreneurial woman who was both a pioneering western woman photographer and a journalist-publisher. Her work is represented in the Julia Driver Collection of Women in Photography at Yale. .

It was in France too that he read the novels of Emile Zola; it was his publication of translations of Zola on his return to England that brought him notoriety and turned him into a reluctant martyr, one of the early heroes of the fight against oppressive literary censorship.

        Fine watercolour portrait believed to be Harriette Ann Simson (1858-1942) of Launceston, Tasmania

      Launceston, 1875. Watercolour portrait, 18 x 14.8 cm (mount size), very fine; preserved in a handsome folding travelling folder of burgundy roan, lined with green moire silk, gilt, the picture surround with gilt fillets and blind-embossed. A remarkable portrait in fine original condition, in an elegant travelling case. Both the dress, composition and furniture suggest this to be a mid-Victorian portrait, circa 1875, painted prior to Jane Eddie's marriage in 1881 to the prosperous businessman and merchant Augustus Simson.Born in 1858 in Launceston Jane Harriette Eddie was the second of five children born to George McKenzie Eddie and Charlotte Martha (née Fogg). Little is known of her early life, but the portrait suggests a background of some comfort and wealth. In 1881 she married Augustus Simson-a successful merchant and businessman and (noted keen amateur naturalist) - at Holy Trinity Church Launceston on 7th October 1881. They had three sons and two daughters between 1882 and 1891. Augustus died aged 81 on 21 May 1918 and was buried at the Carr Villa Cemetery in Section B1 No. 210. Jane died aged 84 on 12 Sep 1942 and her remains were interred with her husband. Their two unmarried daughters, Dora and Janie, were also interred in the same plot (see The Examiner 14 Oct 2006, p. 35).Augustus Simson came to Australia in 1863 and spent some time in North Queensland engaged in pastoral and mercantile pursuits before leaving for Tasmania in 1874. He was involved in tin mining and ore buying on the East Coast before starting a business in Launceston in 1879 purchasing and exporting wool and tin. Augustus became manager, local secretary and agent for a number of mines and was a founding member of the Launceston Stock Exchange in 1881. He was one of the original members of the Australian Association for the Advancement of Science, a member of the Royal Society of Tasmania, and a board member and president of the Mechanics' Institute. He was well-known as an amateur naturalist and was consulted as such by Henry Button and was a member of advisory committee to develop the Launceston Museum.Provenance: from the family, by descent.

Edizione originale di questo rarissimo rendiconto dell'assemblea annuale di questa che puo considerarsi forse la prima delle associazione per l'emancipazione e per i diritti della donna sorta in Europa. L'associazione La solidarite', sorta nel 1872Âattorno all'omonimo giornale, fu la diretta filiazione di un'altra associazione, sempre fondata dalla Goegg nel 1868, l'Association internationale des femmes. L'intento di entrambe le associazioni era di migliorare la condizione lavorativa, sociale e intellettuale della donna anche attraverso la conquista del suffragio universale e la possibilita' di accedere a tutti i gradi di istruzione. Grazie a lei, nel 1872 fu permessa l'ammissione delle donne ai corsi dell'Universita' di Ginevra. Il carattere internazione de 'La solidarete' e' testimoniato dal fatto che gia' nel 1875, l'associazione aveva comitati locali in Germania, Alsazia - Lorena, Chigago, Liverpool, Milano, parigi, Lione, Ginevra e Zurigo.
