        The Athletic News. A Weekly Journal of Amateur Sports [1-40]

      [No1-No 40, lacking No 38] Rare collection of thirty nine issues of Edward Hulton's pioneering Manchester sports newspaper (1875-1876) containing some of the earliest printed football reports. Produced in small tabloid format, each issue runs to 8 pages, priced at a penny, with an engraving of an 'eminent athlete' on the front cover. The run of 39 issues has been bound in modern quarter buckram over marbled boards with recent endpapers; minor browning to the paper stock, otherwise the individual issues are in very good condition throughout. One old tissue repair to a closed tear, p269, final leaf of the No 40 torn with loss. This collection begins with the journal's first issue 'Vol 1-No.1.' on Saturday June 5, 1875 and concludes Saturday, March 4th 1876. The footballing content which would in time make the journal 'the voice of football and the paper of the discerning football enthusiast' becomes prominent from October 1875 onwards with the preceding summer issues filled with reports of Golf, Athletics, Swimming, Bicycling, Yachting, Cricket, Pigeon Shooting and even 'Walking Backwards'. On October 9 the editorial announced that 'To-day the [Football] season may be said to commence in earnest... The weather is not very promising but football enthusiasts are not easily daunted' with match reports from the previous week's clash between 'Wanderers v. Queen's Park, Glasgow' at Hampden Park. From the following week the match reports are prefaced by a list of fixtures which subsequently grew with every issue, prompting several acknowledgments of the pressure of space caused by the footballing reportage. In the October 30 issue appeared the first reports on 'ties for the Association Challenge Cup' - the fifth ever F.A. Cup competition with the final first round tie reported in late November (Crystal Palace v. 15th Regiment) alongside the observation that 'the Association Cup has been the means of giving such an impetus to the "dribbling game".' It's interesting to note the November 6 observation that 'it will be seen that association football is in a fair way to become an institution in Manchester'. The world's oldest independent football club, Sheffield United, makes regular appearances among the match reports with a preview in the final issue of the fifth international match between Scotland and England on the afternoon of 4 March, 1876. Unrecorded here, Scotland won 3-0! Worldcat and COPAC locate one incomplete institutional holding only: BL.

        Central Asia: from the Aryan to the Cossack.

      London: Tinsley Brothers, 1875 - Octavo, original red cloth, title gilt to spine, blind panelling to boards, grey-brown endpapers. A little rubbed and soiled, the spine sunned, front hinge cracked and repaired, light browning throughout, but overall a very good copy. First edition of this excellent and uncommon survey of the history of the region down to the Russian expedition of 1872–3, written with a wary eye on accelerating Russianization in the khanates. The author James Hutton (1818–93) was born in Calcutta, the son of a merchant. After a brief period as an ensign in the army of the East India Company he "tumbled into a fine fortune, tumbled out of it, then applied himself to newspapering" (Reminiscences and Anecdotes of Great Men of India, p. 186). Falling out with the Madras establishment, he headed to England becoming involved with Thornton Hunt and G. H. Lewes's The Leader. "Mr Hutton was destined, however, like so many Liberals of those days, to become eventually a Conservative. He started some twenty-five years ago a morning paper called The Day, which represents the views of a particular section of the Conservative party, but failed, though conducted with great ability, to obtain their active support. After the non-success of The Day Mr Hutton went back to India for a time. He was, indeed, connected throughout his life with Indian journalism, now as editor, now as London correspondent" (obituary in the St James's Gazette). Hutton was the author of some half-dozen books and and the translator of several others, including an account of thuggee published in 1857, and a translation of Daumas's Les Chevaux du Sahara et les mœurs du désert (1863).

Contains eighty black and white illustrations of Powell's epic adventure down the then unknown Colorado and Green Rivers Index. The maps are in excellent condition. Powell's 1869 exploration was the first documented expedition to successfully navigate the perilous rapids of the Colorado River through the uncharted Grand Canyon. The expedition set off in 1869 with ten men and four boats under the direction of one-armed Civil War veteran John Wesley Powell. After three months and nearly 1,000 miles, only five of the original party emerged from the depths of the canyon. Their historic journey mapped the last wild, untamed river of the American West and named the last unknown regions of American geography. The Henry Mountains and the Dirty Devil River were until the Powell expedition the last nameless mountain range and river in the continental U.S. Howes P525. Farquhar 42a. Wheat 1261. Graff 3336.

        Title in Ottoman Turkish] Hive siyahetnâmesi ve-tarih-i. (A traveller's account of Khiva and its history).

      Istanbul: Basiret Matbaasi, AH 1292 (AD 1875/76) - Royal octavo (230 × 160 mm). Contemporary green sheep-backed pebble-grain boards, title gilt to spine, gilt lozenges to compartments, blind panelling to boards, pale green endpapers. A little rubbed, the spine slightly sunned, the contents variably browned through variations in the paperstock, 2-inch closed tear to map-fold, but overall very good. 32 plates with tipped-in tissue guards, folding map to rear. First edition in turkish, the year following the English first edition: the first and only edition published in the Ottoman empire. Extremely uncommon, just four copies on OCLC, this timely Turkish translation of MacGahan's account of the 1873 fall of the Khivan khanate to the Russians under General Kaufman was made in the same years as the Russian translation. MacGahan (1844–1878), was a foreign correspondent for Gordon Bennett's New York Herald and later the Daily News. He had previously covered the Franco–Prussian War in 1870–1 and was subsequently appointed the Herald's St Petersburg correspondent. On hearing of the departure of a force to Central Asia under General Skobelev, MacGahan defied the ban on correspondents accompanying the expedition. He crossed the Kyzyl-Kum desert on horseback and was present at the surrender of Khiva. His later investigations of the Bulgarian atrocities in 1876 were instrumental in preventing Britain from supporting Turkey in the Russo–Turkish War of 1877–8, a key factor in Bulgaria gaining independence from the Ottoman Empire. Atabey 744; Ghani p. 233; Yakushi M12 - all for different English language editions. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Philadelphia: privately printed, . Limited edition. 1875 - Pp. (2), 93-187, (1, explanation of plates); 6 full page black-and-white lithographed plates. Original one-half black leather over black cloth-covered boards, front cover with gilt border decorations and with black leather title/author label outlined by gilt decorations, sm folio (13 x 10 inches; 33.5 x 23.5 cm). This is the very rare privately printed first edition that was limited to 50 copies only. In this work, Cope describes 37 new species and 5 new genera of reptiles and amphibians from Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Peru. In 1877 this same work was re-published in the Journal of the Academy of Natural Sciences. The monograph contains four separate papers by Cope -- Article 4: On the Batrachia and Reptilia of Costa Rica + Article 5: On the Batrachia and Reptilia collected by D. John M. Branford during the Nicaraguan Canal Survey of 1874 + Article 6: Report on the Reptiles brought by Professor James Orton from the middle and upper Amazon, and western Peru + Article 8: Note on the Ichthyology of Lake Titicaca. On the front endpaper there is a pencil signature attached: "From Prof. Amos P. Brown, H. W. Fowler." Amos P. Brown was a Professor of Mineralogy and Geology at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. H. W. Fowler was a professor at the University of California, Museum of Paleontology. Laid in at front is a 3x5 inch card with a note in ink reading: "Cope’s own personal volume presented to Robert Sutcliffe of Fairfield on August 2, 1949 by Cope’s Grandniece, Mrs. Sangree. Rare, ANSP lacks a copy, another copy in Library of Congress". As this work was limited to 50 copies only, printed privately by and for Edward Cope, it seldom comes up for sale. Light marginal browning to the some tissue guards protecting the six lithographed plates, endpapers renewed, light edge wear to leather corners, some rubbing to cloth along the bottom of the rear cover; overall a tight and clean copy in near fine condition.
