        A collection of letters and documents assembled by Tissandier regarding his ascent and crash in the Zénith on 16 April 1875, the first great aviation disaster. Two 8vo volumes of letters and documents collected by Tissandier and specially bound for him in half-brown morocco & marbled boards, spines gilt. Accompanied by a modern box containing further documents (all detailed below)

      - France: 1875. On the 23rd and 24th of March 1875, Gaston and Albert Tissandier made the longest trip ever in a balloon - aboard the Zénith, flying from Paris to near Bordeaux, a distance of over 600 km. Following that achievement, Gaston decided, along with fellow experienced aviators, Joseph Crocé-Spinelli and Théodore Sivel, to make another flight, this time with the goal to reach an extreme altitude in order to study the problem of respiration in thin air and meteorological phenomena. This flight, on the 15th of April 1875 aboard the Zénith, was the first great aviation disaster. The three reached an altitude of 8600 meters but Crocé-Spinelli and Sivel died of asphyxiation. After making a crash landing, Tissandier discovered he had become partially deaf. Gaston Tissandier was a fine book and autograph collector and he was determined to save everything relating to his Zénith ascensions. The two volumes here were bound for him and he saved further materials which have been kept in loose wrappers. The first volume, titled on the spine in gilt "Catastrophe du Zénith. Correspondance 1875" contains about 100 letters, telegrams, and documents regarding the disastrous ascension, written to and by Gaston immediately before and after the event, and are beautifully bound in on stubs. The first documents are from the Société Française de Navigation aérienne announcing the flights of the 23rd of March and the 15th of April. Following is a list of supplies to be carried aloft - oxygen, pigeons, thermometers, along with other items - written by Crocé-Spinelli two days before the flight. Also bound in is a brief letter from Gaston to his brothers Albert and Alfred immediately after his crash landing, followed by a letter to Alfred from Albert with the good news that Gaston had survived. Gaston has added "Je t'embrasse de tout coeur?" Following this are a series of warm and emotional letters from his family, scientists, colleagues from the Parisian publishing world, etc. Some of the letters are from James Glaisher (who had ascended to 37,000 feet in 1862), Leverrier, Paul Bert, Quatrefages, Jourdanet, Fraissinet, Flammarion, etc. Also bound in are announcements to raise funds for the families of the two victims. The second volume - titled on the spine "Catastrophe du Zénith. Lettres reçu par ma Mére 1875" - contains about thirty letters, for the most part from members of the Tissandier family written immediately after the crash, giving news or sympathy to Madame Tissandier. Most important is the six-page manuscript in the hand of Gaston, addressed to the president of the Société Française de Navigation aérienne and dated 16 April, describing the events of the ascent. This is a detailed description, written immediately after the event. Also bound in are about forty calling cards from visitors, presented immediately after the crash landing. The modern box contains many interesting items. The first is a piece of the actual balloon, manufactured of thick canvas (245 x 245 mm.). Also, there is a folder with the manuscript title "Documents relatifs au Zénith. Mémoire de Crocé-Spinelli" which contains the autograph manuscript by Gaston announcing the success of his flight of 23-24 March (3 pp., folio), addressed to the president of the Société Française de Navigation aérienne; the autograph manuscript (6 pp., folio) by Crocé-Spinelli describing the same flight, heavily reworked in the hand of Gaston; a photograph of the "launching pad" for the balloon, probably at La Villette; a four-page folio manuscript biography of Crocé-Spinelli; and a one-page list by Tissandier of the items to be carried on his flight in March with prices. This is accompanied by another folder with the manuscript title "La Catastrophe du Zénith. Correspondance - Pieces de vers." A great many ephemeral pieces are present relating to fund-raising efforts for the families of Crocé-Spinelli and Sivel; printed poems about the disaster (this event seems have inspired many with poe [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        [Swanston Street Looking North]. Instantaneous Views of Melbourne.

      11 Royal Arcade, Melbourne. Caire. No date. (circa1875). Albumen print laid down onto card with gold lined borders. Captioned in gold ink: Fine Art Photograph. N.J. Caire/11 Royal Arcade/Melbourne/Instantaneous Views of Melbourne. Three very tiny chips at edges, lightly creased in a few places. These creases are more apparent in the image of the photograph than to the naked eye. Photograph measures 15 x 20cm. A very interesting view of Swanston Street. The Princes Bridge Hotel which soon after this photo was taken became Young & Jackson after Henry Young and Thomas Jackson took over the licence in 1875 is in far left of the image, Melbourne Town Hall is to the right while the eye is drawn down Swanston Street by the horses, carts and a few pedestrians that take up the central section of the photograph.N.J. Caire described by Jack Cato in "The Story of the Camera in Australia" as "an aristocrat of the camera" was from his youth affected with "the madness of photography". His established his first studio in Adelaide in 1860 moving to the then gold field town of Clunes in 1870 before opening a studio in Melbourne in 1876. Given that this photograph still shows the sign of the Princes Bridge Hotel, on what became Young & Jackson, it seems likely this photograph predates the opening of his studio in Melbourne.

        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).

      Washington, D.C.: Government Printing Office, 1875. First edition. Leather bound. 291pp. Quarto [30 cm.] Original calf with leather labels on backstrip. Very good. Volume has been rebacked with original backstrip laid over. Light overall rubbing to boards, more rubbing to extremities. Small map of Arizona attached to the front pastedown.

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]
