      1875. With 129 Illustrations by Riou. London and New York: George Routledge and Sons, 1875. Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt. First English Edition (this tale had first been published in French in 1866, as LES ANGLAIS AU POLE NORD). This volume comprises the first half of "The Voyages and Adventures of Captain Hatteras"; the second half is THE FIELD OF ICE.

        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.

        Charmosyna Josephinæ. "

      Natural History: London. Taylor & Francis for Henry Sotheran Ltd. . Lithographed by Walter. 1875-1888. Original hand-coloured lithograph of Josephina Parrakeets, from John Gould&#39;s "Birds of New Guinea. " Volume 5, Plate 12. A pair of brightly coloured parrakeets upon a branch. Bright and generally clean; minor spotting to outer margins; very good. John Gould (1804- 1881) Ornithologist, first trained as a taxidermist, opening a business in London in 1824. In 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the Museum of the Zoological Society of London; there he oversaw the collection of birds from Himalaya which led to his first published work "A Century of Birds from the Himalaya Mountains" [ 1830-32]. Throughout his life he eventually published 41 volumes with approximately 3000 plates. covering birds of Europe, Great Britain, Asia, Australia and Papua New Guinea. The works were published in livraisons, by pre-paid subscrption, each part cost three guineas. In the early works he was aided in the creation of the plates by his wife Elizabeth Gould, Edward Lear and others. Gould died in February 1881 having completed the first 12 parts of the present work " The Birds of New Guinea and the adjacent Papuan Islands, including many new species recently discovered in Australia. " As the title suggests he intended the work to supplement the "Birds of Australia" with the newly discovered species. After his death, Henry Sotherans purchased his entire stock and copyrights and in a notice to the Subsribers they stated their intention to complete the unfinished works [" Birds of Asia" and" Birds of New Guinea"] using all Gould&#39;s staff, artists and colourists under the supervision of William Hart, and with the text edited by Richard Bowdler Sharpe who was Senior Assistant in the Department of Zoology at the British Museum.
