        Das Königl[ich] Württemberg[ische] Haupt- und Landgestüt.

      Marbach, no printer, 1875.. 24 vintage photographs (albumen prints) by Ch. Schmid, Reutlingen, mounted on cardboard with printed captions (c. 487 x 320 mm; images c. 270 x 210 mm to 190 x 137 mm). With 4 pp of letterpress text (folio, green papered spine).. Fine set of original photographs showing the Royal Wuerttemberg Stud in Marbach and its famous horses. Owned by Wilhelm, King of Württemberg, Marbach was the first Arabian stud in Europe. From 1852 to 1871 it was directed by Baron Julius von Hügel, who purchased valuable stock from the Egyptian stud of Abbas Pasha, "thus raising it to the highest standard of excellence" (W. R. Brown, The Horse of the Desert, p. 161/166). Hügel was succeeded by Cäsar Paul von Hofacker (1831-96), who issued the present photo series and also composed the accompanying text: the latter discusses the history of the Stud and its horses, including the stallion Sanspareil, son of the Arabian Bajan and bred in 1816; in 1860 another pure-bred Arabian was acquired from the Wuerttemberg Weil Stud. Among the photoportraits are the pure-bred Arabian Zarif, his daughter Zinka, and the stallion Shah. Well-preserved.

        Journey across the Western Interior of Australia. With an Introduction and Additions, by Charles H. Eden. Edited by H.W. Bates

      London: Sampson Low, 1875. Octavo, with frontispiece, plates, a large folding map; with a cancelled library stamp otherwise a good copy in contemporary cloth, gilt. The first edition of Warburton's narrative of his expedition from the Telegraph Line to the west coast which won the race to cross the continent from east to west.Warburton, a retired South Australian Police Commissioner, was funded in his quest by Sir Thomas Elder and Captain Walter William Hughes. En route he benefited enormously from an encounter at Charlotte Waters with Ernest Giles, who showed him his maps and suggested he take an alternate course from the one he had just endured.Although Warburton won the honours of the crossing over Giles and W.C. Gosse, it came at a high cost. In the harsh Great Sandy Desert his expedition deteriorated into an endless search for water. Within a few months half their camels were dead; provisions were low and much of their equipment had been lost. They reached the Oakover River just in time but even here they faced starvation and had to eat camel hide while waiting for help.Indeed, so terrible were the privations that Warburton suffered that he was physically unfit to prepare his journals for publication. The text of Warburton's own journals was edited by H.W. Bates of the Royal Geographical Society, and an historical account of exploration in the western third of the Australian continent was added by Charles Eden. The scientific content was arranged by Professor Owen, Dr Hooker, John Gould and Dr Henry Trimen.

Folds, one inch tear in blank left margin, light marginal soiling, else fine condition.Leopold II, King of the Belgians, succeeded his father [Leopold I of Belgium] to the throne in 1865 and remained king until his death. Outside of Belgium, he is chiefly remembered as the founder and sole owner of the Congo Free State, a secret private enterprise scheme to extract rubber and ivory which was responsible for the death of an estimated 5-15 million Africans. King Albert I, born Albert Leopold Clément Marie Meinrad in Brussels, was the younger son of Philip, Count of Flanders, and succeeded his uncle, Leopold II of Belgium, on the throne on December 17, 1909. At the beginning of World War I, Albert resisted the German advance and held them off long enough for Britain and France to prepare for the Battle of the Marne (September 6 - 9, 1914). He led his army through the Battle of the Yser and at the end of the war back into its own territory. He re-entered Brussels to a hero's welcome. King Albert I was killed in a climbing accident at Marche-les-Dames, in the Ardennes region of Belgium near Namur."

        The Way We Live Now [Sadleir's copy w/his notes]

      Chapman and Hall, 1875, Hardcover, Book Condition: Near Fine, First editionA Very Good + copy (expert repair to the spine cloth of one volume executed by the Heritage Bindery, rubbing at the extremities, small tear and tape repair to rear free endpaper of Volume 1) of a wonderful novel which proved Trollope's continuing power as a novelist amid talk that his powers were waning. The book tells the story of the rise and fall of the fictional stock market manipulator, Augustus Melmotte -- and its effect on his daughter's options for marriage. The tale is an excellent social satire which Walpole deemed to be one of the most remarkable of all English novels published between 1860 and 1890. The story remains vibrant and has currency even today. This is the copy of the famed collector and Trollope bibliographer, Michael Sadleir, WITH SADLEIR'S HANDWRITTEN NOTES IN PENCIL ON THE REAR ENDPAPERS OF EACH VOLUME. The book wears Sadleir's lion bookplate as well as the bookplate famed collector Barton Currie. This is, quite simply, THE copy for the Trollope collector to have. MICHAEL SADLEIR'S (AND BARTON CURRIE'S) COPY, WITH MICHAEL SADLEIR'S HANDWRITTEN NOTES ON THE REAR FREE ENDPAPERS OF EACH VOLUME. An excellent opportunity for the Trollope collector to distinguish his or her collection.

Contains the following five essays: As long as America is so heavily indebted to European Nations it will be impossible to have a good and uniform currency upon a gold basis; Specie-based currency with the shackles of gold redemption and the national bank system are anti-republican and dangerous to human liberty; A second system of paper money freed from the shackles of specie redemption and based upon the faith of the nation; How contraction and gold redemption will affect the debtors and tax-payers; Industry and productions stimulated by a greater volume of currency.

        Le soleil. Bd. I - II + Atlas cpl.( Premiere Partie et Seconde Partie + Atlas cpl. )

      Gauthier-Villars, Paris 1875 - Bd. I - II und Atlas cpl., Deuxieme edition, revue et augmentee (zweite, verbesserte und erweiterte Auflage ). In französischer Sprache. Bd. I mit: XX, 428 Seiten mit 150 (davon einigen zweifarbigen ) Abbildungen bzw. Illustrationen im Text. Bd. II mit 484 Seiten und 280 Abbildungen ( darunter einigen farbigen ) sowie 13 chromolithographierten Tafeln. Der Atlas mit 6 doppelblattgroßen spektrographischen Karten. Ohldr, Klein4°.( Astronomy Secchi (1818-1878), director of the observatory at the Collegio Romano, was an important and under-recognized astronomer who engaged in a number of pioneering researches in nineteenth century astronomy and astrophysics. He made important and comprehensive observations of the sun, which he began studying in 1851. Secchi was particularly interested in sunspots and solar flares, and the beautiful colored plates in this set include many illustrations of a wide variety of solar flares. The text also includes descriptions of many of the instruments he used in his researches. Secchi theorized that solar flares and sunspots probably had more effect on the weather and other natural phenomena on Earth than had previously been thought. Secchi was one of the first to adapt spectroscopy to astronomy in a systematic manner. He was also one of the first to apply the new technique of photography to astronomic use, making several daguerreotypes in the course of his researches during the solar eclipse of 1851).

        Bosporus mit Istanbul, im Vordergrund der Großwesir Hüseyin Avni Pasha in einer Kutsche, von Reitern begleitet, umgeben von einer Menschenmenge.

      O. O., 1875.. Öl auf Holz. Signiert und datiert 1875.. Der in Regensburg geborene Pferde- und Schlachtenmaler, Illustrator und Schriftsteller Lang war Schüler von Karl Steffek in Berlin, Friedrich Voltz und Franz Adam in München und Adolf Schreyer in Paris. "Da die größeren Bestellungen nach dem Kriege bisweilen ziemlich lang warten ließen, so benutzte Lang die unfreiwillige Muße zu neuen Nachlesen und Excursionen nach Frankreich und seinem lieben Paris, oder nach Ungarn und zu den Donaufürstenthümern, wobei ein längerer, sehr fruchtbringender Aufenthalt in Constantinopel und ein Abstecher nach Griechenland erfrischenden Wechsel boten [...] wobei dem Maler und Beschauer die fesselnde Abwechslung von morgenländischen Trachten, Eselfuhrwerken, Kameltreibern, Melonenhändlern, von goldglänzenden Wagen, verschleierten Weibern zu statten kam - eine sinnbethörende Lebensmannigfaltigkeit, welche mit den blauen Uniformen, Raupenhelmen, Tornister- und Gewehrreihen. mit Pulverdampf und Granatwölkchen gefällig und anregend contrastierte. Man sah um so deutlicher, mit welcher Bravour Lang in Krieg und Frieden zu Hause war und die schwierigsten Stoffe als echter Künstler bewältigte. Ebenso wohlthätig überraschten die Bilder vom Bosporus" (ADB Ll, 551). - Boetticher 1.2, 803, 13. Vgl. Thieme/Becker XX, 317. Rosenberg, Münchner Malerschule, S. 50.
