        Mysterious Island [pt. 1: Wrecked in the Air]

      New York: Scribner, Armstrong & Co., 1875 New York: Scribner, Armstrong & Co., 1875. First American Edition and First English Language Edition in Book Form [Sampson, Low, Marston & Co. in England had serialized this first of three parts of Mysterious Island in March of 1874 in St. James Magazine]. With a singular tall, slender octavo format with 48 illustrations for this first edition of Wrecked in the Air, Scribner Armstrong continued their bitter competition with Henry L. Shepard of Boston, who announced on the same day, October 27th, 1874 [under the title "Shipwrecked in the Air"]. This Scribner Armstrong edition, however, was the authorized one - letters of authorization from French true first edition pubisher Jules Hetzel and from Sampson, Marston & Low are reproduced on the recto of the frontispiece - and Shepard could only counter with "Auththenic Edition" . Date of 1875 on the title page is correct, with 1874 entry date noted on the verso of the title page - where Scribner also continues his battle with Shepard by cautioning the buyer against "any editions ...which do not bear the imprint of Scribner, Armstrong & Co....works published under other other imprints are PIRATED, and cannot fail to be inferior in every particular...". Taves & Michaluk [V013] appear to concur that the Shepard edition can be deduced to have been pirated from the Sampson, Low serialized product. Nonetheless, that Shepard edition, which was well-made, is a collectible edition in its own right. This Scribner's true authorized first edition meets specs not just for the Verne collection, but as a souvenir of adventures in publishing as they were in the late nineteenth century. Note that the full three-part Mysterious Island tale was published somewhat later: Wrecked in the Air is the first part. Condition: Corners touched, spines tips fraying, small indications of soil and wear. Indications of prior ownership by a long-term public service family in the Boston area, with the bookplate of Frederick M. Whitney on the front pastedown, and the signature of Willis S. Whitney - dated December 6th of 1874 in Boston - on the flyleaf. Handsome, bright and tight, better than very good, not quite near fine. L15

He published a number of monographs on birds, illustrated by plates that he produced with the assistance of his wife, Elizabeth Gould, and several other artists. He has been considered the father of bird study in Australia. His identification of the birds now nicknamed "Darwin's finches" played a role in the inception of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection, and Gould's work is referenced in Charles Darwin's book, On the Origin of Species.

      vi, 331 pp., plates. Cloth. Second edition. Illus. with 51 folding maps and plans, one of which is in color, 8 plates, and in-text illustrations. Howes J245. Wheat 1241. Pilling 2040. Author's copy. The expanded second edition (chapters IX to XV inclusive, of Professor Comstock's Geological Report were prepared after the Congressional Document [H.R. Ex.Doc. No. 285, 43d Cong., 1st sess.] had gone through the press, and consequently do not appear in that edition of the report). By far the largest contribution is by Theodore B. Comstock (1849-1915) who went on to be the first president of the University of Arizona. This document reports Jones' discovery of Togwotee Pass, the southern route out of the Yellowstone Basin which previous explorers had failed to find. See Wheat pp. 298-9. Provenance: Kenneth E. Hill (bookplate), Theo. B. Comstock (his library stamp).

This large, colorful and lively depiction of two children and their mother near one of the lakes in Central Park is typical of the prints issued by Charles Schile, a German immigrant, whose black borders are a common feature. The goat pulled children's carriage and the luxurious clothing denote an aristocratic New York family. Central Park was open to the poorer class once a week, and sometimes not even then. Harry T. Peters, America on Stone, pp. 358-359.

        THE HARVARD BOOK. PAUL REVERE ENGRAVING

      Cambridge. Very good. 1875. First edition.. 3/4 red morocco with tan leather boards, t.e.g. by MacDonald Bindery. . 2 volumes. A Series of Historical, Biographical and Descriptive Sketches. 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&#39;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 book on Harvard University. In one particular, this history meets a want not supplied by the others. It gives historical and descriptive sketches, illustrated with views, of all the societies; and biographies, illustrated with portraits, of the chief officers of all departments.& The whole work elicited so much admiration elsewhere, that a similar undertaking, "The Yale Book," has since been carried out at Yale College. Of "The Harvard Book" there were about five hundred copies of the first edition printed, and perhaps one hundred copies of the second edition. These six hundred copies will enhance in value as time rolls on; for there will probably never be printed another edition, as the illustrations and negatives were wholly consumed by the fire in December last, which destroyed the office and warehouse of the present proprietors and publishers, Houghton, Mifflin, & Co., of Boston The Harvard Register. Moses King, 1880.& & There are a couple of dents to board edges and minor rubbing to leather. Strong and intact.

          ALBUM DI FOTOGRAFIE

      TORINO, MARZO 1875esemplare in ottime condizioni Legatura in pelle e metallo con rilievi e dediche ITALIANO Imponente legatura in pelle  e metallo (ottone); al piatto anteriore, copertura in metallo;" all'interno di doppio filetto in rilievo, in alto al centro, motto su festone in rilievo ""TUTI UN"", in basso al centro, sempre su festone in rilievo, data, MARZO MDCCCLXXV"; ai lati, sempre in rilievo, festoni attorcigliati ad asta con tridente in punta, contenenti la dedica AD EDOARDO SCARAMPI DEI MARCHESI DI VILLANOVA, J SOCI CANOTTIERI DELL'ERIDANO; al centro del piatto, cifre EV in rilievo e a smalto blu, verde, azzurro e oro, sormontate da corona marchionale a 5 punte, anch'essa in rilievo. Piatto posteriore in pelle, all'interno della cornice metallica. Dorso a 4 nervi rilevati, filetti e cornici a secco ed in oro agli scomparti; fibbia metallica di chiusura; sguardie in raso blu. 43 spessi cartoncini porta-fotografie, ognuno con cornice tipografica impressa in color oro; le prime  3 contengono altrettanti cartoncini interni riportanti, manoscritti e con capolettera in rosso, 56 nomi altisonanti del tempo,  soci del Circolo Eridano e donatori del volume. All'interno degli altri 40 cartoncini, 130 fotografie di varie  dimensioni a firma dei più celebri fotografi torinesi del tempo, da Vanetti a Montabone a Schenboche, raffiguranti personaggi non identificati;" particolarmente curiose le fotografie riguardanti scene di canottaggio sul Po e alcune riguardanti figure in abiti carnevaleschi. Alcune caselle non presentano fotografie allocate. Il voluminoso (e pesante!) album rappresenta un prezioso dono dei soci del Circolo Eridano di Torino al conte Edoardo Scarampi dei marchesi  di Villanova. Esemplare in eccellenti condizioni all'interno, la legatura  presenta vistose ossidazioni e erosioni alle parti metalliche del piatto posteriore. Cfr. Circolo Eridano Torino: ""Il Circolo Eridano trae origine dalla risistemazione del parco del Valentino attuata dalla Città di Torino, su progetto del sindaco Ernesto Bertone di Sambuy, nell'anno 1863. La primitiva sede fluviale sul Po sorse nel 1868 secondo il geniale disegno dell'Ing. Pecco con un'originale forma ottagona a pagoda, ai piedi del castello del Valentino ed affiancato all'approdo dell'altra società di canottieri 'Cerea', anch'essa nata nel 1863. L'attività del Circolo Eridano si distingueva da quest'ultima società per affiancare, alla pratica remiera, altre attività non solo sportive ma anche conviviali. Il 6 agosto 1896 il Circolo Eridano veniva rilevato dal Circolo degli Artisti di Torino, che ne potenziava la tradizionale attività di canottaggio e, nello stesso tempo, lo utilizzava come sede di gare di nuoto, di atletica e di bocce, ma soprattutto introduceva l'organizzazione di geniali feste, fra le quali era rituale quella della zattera galleggiante, che ospitava un banchetto di oltre cento persone. L'Eridano era la meta preferita degli artisti torinesi, che tanta ispirazione fra Otto e Novecento hanno tratto dalle atmosfere del Po. A causa dell'esposizione universale del 1911 la vecchia sede venne abbattuta, per essere ricostruita sull'altra riva del Po, presso la barriera di Piacenza, l'attuale Corso Moncalieri, nelle splendide forme progettate dall'architetto Giuseppe Velati-Bellini, nel 1914. Con il rinnovarsi della sede riprendevano anche i cimenti sportivi, il più famoso dei quali, il trofeo Eridano, venne disputato come sfida remiera fra tutte le società rivierasche del Po dal 1922 al 1950"". Il conte Edoardo Scarampi dei Marchesi di Villanova fu, insieme al fratello, marchese Alberto, uno dei principali animatori del canottaggio torinese dell'epoca, primo presidente del Rowing Club Italiano.
