        Munia Forbesi (Forbes's Munia)

      London 1875 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor, from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became and expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. While in Papua New Guinea, he decided to embark on a final folio as a complement to his unprecedented “Birds of Asia”. “The Birds of New Guinea” was Gould's last full-scale work, left incomplete on his death in 1881. Gould completed twelve of the twenty-five parts, and the task of finishing the project fell to Richard Bowdler Sharpe, a superbly qualified successor, who had been Gould's colleague, assistant and friend. One of Gould's most exotic works, the five magnificent volumes of the Birds of New Guinea contain an extensive series of beautiful images of birds of paradise, bower birds, parrots, parakeets, cockatoos, kingfishers and hawk-owls. All of the 320 images are extraordinary for their color and artistry, interesting backdrops and animated compositions. Gould and Sharpe created some of their most engaging and active scenes of bird life in the “The Birds of New Guinea” , and the great popular reception of the work was such that it was one of their only productions that led to a sequel, Sharp's “Birds of Paradise” (1891-98). Missing from that later production, however, was the almost overwhelming variety of species of the “The Birds of New Guinea”, which, like the “Birds of Asia”, was the most comprehensive chronicle of the island's ornithology ever issued. This folio size, hand-colored lithograph, Munia Forbesi, measures 21.5" x 14.75" and is in mint condition. Commonly called Forbes's Munia, these birds are expertly hand-colored in rich shades of brown with black heads and under the tail feathers. These birds are illustrated perched on stems with delicate delicate flowers that one bird nibbles on. The precise lines and detailing on these birds defines their feathers and their coloring gives them added dimension.

        The Last Journals of David Livingstone, in Central Africa from Eighteen Hundred and Sixty-Five to his Death. Continued by a Narrative of His Last Moments and Sufferings, obtained from his faithful servants Chuma and Susi

      New York: Harper & Brothers , 1875 541+[4 ad] pages with frontispiece portrait, 2 maps (including folding pocket map), 21 full page and 25 smaller illustrations. Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 6 1/4") issued in green cloth with gilt lettering on spine and gilt pictorial on cover and spine with blind stamped rule to cover edges, edges beveled. Edited by Horace Waller. First published in London by John Murray in 1874. 1st American edition. Dr David Livingstone (19 March 1813 1 May 1873) was a British Congregationalist pioneer medical missionary with the London Missionary Society and explorer in central Africa. He was the first European to see Mosi-oa-Tunya (Victoria Falls), to which he gave the English name in honour of his monarch, Queen Victoria. He is the subject of the meeting with H. M. Stanley, which gave rise to the popular quotation, "Dr Livingstone, I presume?" Perhaps one of the most popular national heroes of the late-nineteenth century in Victorian Britain, Livingstone had a mythic status, which operated on a number of interconnected levels: that of Protestant missionary martyr, that of working-class "rags to riches" inspirational story, that of scientific investigator and explorer, that of imperial reformer, anti-slavery crusader and advocate of commercial empire. His fame as an explorer helped drive forward the obsession with discovering the sources of the Nile River that formed the culmination of the classic period of European geographical discovery and colonial penetration of the African continent. At the same time his missionary travels, "disappearance" and death in Africa, and subsequent glorification as posthumous national hero in 1874 led to the founding of several major central African Christian missionary initiatives carried forward in the era of the European "Scramble for Africa." Condition: Shelf wear, head and heal of spine rubbed, frayed and chipped, slight rubbing along front hinge, small sticker removed from pack pocket else a very good copy. . First American Edition. Original Cloth. Very Good. Royal octavo.

        A Passionate Pilgrim. and Other Tales.

      Boston, 1875. 8vo., pp. 496. Publisher's green cloth, gilt titles to spine. Head and tail of spine rubbed, light marking to boards. Very good indeed. First Edition of James' first novella. Set in England, the tale shows James' strong interest in the contrast between the Old World and the New. In fact, the difference between America and Europe erupts into open conflict in the story, which leads to a sadly ironic ending. The story was the earliest fiction that James included in the 'New York Edition' (1907-09) of his works. Edel and Lawrence [A1].

        Old London [with letterpress by Alfred Marks].

      Folio [470 x 360mm] 2 portfolios. 14pp descriptive letterpress printed rectos only, 120 carbon photographic prints mounted on blue card with printed titles, dates and publication details. Originally published in annual parts of 6 photographs [1875 - 1878], then 12 photographs [1879 - 1886]. Also included is an 11-page manuscript alphabetical index to the subjects of the photographs. Original sheep backed cloth portfolios, lacking most of the cloth ties and a little worn on the spines, letterpress leaves a little frayed. Old damp stains to the bottom right hand corner of most of the card mounts, well away from the photographic images but often affecting the printed titles. This has left a discolouration to that section of the mount, rarely more than a triangular section entering 80mm into the card, but in many cases it has led to a denaturing and subsequent weakness of the affected section. It is possible that this copy belonged to Alfred Marks as the initials AM and a number appear on all except 15 of the 120 mounts. The numbers are not the same throughout, but are consecutive with each issued part and may relate to the subscriber number issued for each part. They are numbered as follows: 13 - 18 AM 9; 21, 22 & 24 AM 22; Part 5 [25 - 36] AM 1; Part 6 [37 - 48] AM 33; Part 7 [49 - 60] AM 44; Part 8 [61-72] AM 72; Part 9 [73 - 84] AM 9; Part 10 [97 - 108] AM 46; Part 11 [109 - 120] AM 25. The Society for Photographing Relics of Old London originated in the wish of a few friends to have a record of the Oxford Arms in Warwick Lane, threatened in 1873 and demolished in 1878. Negatives were made by Alfred and John Bool of Albany Street and these were distributed among subscribers in 1875. Letters leading to the formation of the Society appeared in The Times in 1875. Initially they were issued without letterpress but in 1881 Alfred Marks wrote descriptive text for those issued up to that date and continued to produce text from then to the end of the series. For details of all the buildings portrayed, plus an introductory essay see: Old London, Photographed by Henry Dixon and Alfred and John Bool for the Society for Photographing Relics of Old London, by Graham Bush. Academy Editions, 1975. A copy of which included with this item. Due to the protracted publishing history, complete sets of this beautiful series of photographs of a vanished London are understandably scarce and it is poorly represented in institutional collections. Copac lists The British Library as the only U.K. location; it is held in whole or in part by a number of U.S. libraries.

Paul Lacroix (April 27, 1806 - October 16, 1884), French author and journalist, was born in Paris, the son of a novelist.He is best known under his pseudonym of P.L. Jacob, bibliophile, or Bibliophile Jacob, suggested by the constant interest he took in public libraries and books generally. Lacroix was an extremely prolific and varied writer. Over twenty historical romances alone came from his pen, and he also wrote a variety of serious historical works, including a history of Napoleon III, and the life and times of the Tsar Nicholas I of Russia.He was the joint author with Ferdinand Séré of a five-volume work, Le Moyen IAge et la Renaissance (1847), a standard work on the manners, customs and dress of those times, the chief merit of which lies in the great number of illustrations it contains. He also wrote many monographs on phases of the history of culture, including Manners, Custom and Dress During the Middle Ages and During the Renaissance Period. Over the signature Pierre Dufour was published an exhaustive Histoire de la prostitution (1851-1852), which has always been attributed to Lacroix. His works on bibliography were also extremely numerous. In 1885 he was appointed librarian of the Arsenal Library, Paris.

        Autograph Letter Signed to an unnamed correspondent (John, 1820-1893, Scientist)

      1875 - thanking him for his kindness and saying that "in former years I have had to meet some brisk criticisms regarding Dr Joule:", (James Prescott Joule, 1818-1889, the physicist), "this makes me anxious that no ground should exist that could intimate that I rated him lower than Dr Mayer" (Julius Robert von Mayer, 1814-1878, the German physician and physicist). "Were this not the case I should not for a moment think of asking you either to alter the leading", the space between lines, "or to give the article the same place as that accorded to the one on Mayer. If you wish it pray postpone the article until the next week, making a note that press of matter compelled you to do so. I hardly think however that it would make the least difference to Dr Sanderson whether his article comes first or second. 'Dr Carpenter & Dr Mayer' may come any where - but I think Joule ought to have the same position as Mayer", with apologies for the trouble, 2 sides 8vo., Royal Institution headed paper, 18th December no year, from the handwriting circa In papers of 1841 (unpublished) and 1842, Mayer propounded the equivalence of work and heat and the conservation of energy when work and heat are exchanged, and went on to determine a numerical value for the mechanical equivalent of heat. In 1848 he discovered the credit had been given to Joule which, coupled with the deaths of two of his children, led to his attempted suicide. In 1862, Tyndall revived Mayer's work in a lecture at the Royal Institution, and in papers in the Philosophical Magazine, 1863-1864, whose avowed object was "to raise a noble and a suffering man to the position which his labours entitled him to occupy". Mayer showed genius in applying the principles to a remarkable range of phenomena, terrestrial and cosmic. For the controversy, in which Tyndall succeeded in making equal claims for both, see Eve & Creasey's life of Tyndall, pp. 94-105. Joule was awarded the Copley Medal (The Royal Society's highest award) in 1870 and Mayer in 1871. John Scott Burdon Sanderson, (1828-1905, from 1899 1st Baronet, the pathologist and physiologist) was at this time professor at University College London (later at Oxford). In 1873 he began to examine the role of electricity in physiology, after Darwin inquired about the Venus flytrap. The nervous system was also a main interest of William Benjamin Carpenter, (1813-1885, the biologist, at this time Registrar of University College London), together with its relation to the moral will.

Bernhard Koerner (1875-1952) war Reichspräsidialrat, Mitglied des königlich preußischen Heroldsamtes u. Stiftungsmitglied der Guido-von-List-Gesellschaft. Sein Interesse am heraldischen Okkultismus verhalf Guido von List zu fast unbegrenztem Material für seine Runen- u. Heraldikforschung. In dem von List gegründeten "Hohen-Armanen-Orden" war Koerner unter dem Titel "Arz-Femo-Aithari" Mitglied. Dass die Runenauslegungen aus diesem in Einzellieferungen erschienenen "Handbuch der Heroldskunst" in völkischen Kreisen grosse Beachtung fanden, belegt auch der damalige Bezieher Karl Maria Wiligut (als SS-Mitglied in Heinrich Himmlers persönlichen Stab "Weisthor" genannt). Im Adressverzeichnis des zweiten Bandes findet man den "Erberinnerer" unter der Eintragung 314 wieder. Koerners Werk ist ohne Zweifel eine der Quellen für Wiliguts Wissen, das später Darré u.

        Report of a Mission to Yarkund in 1873 … with Historical and Geographical Information Regarding the Possessions of the Ameer of Yarkund

      Calcutta: Printed at the Foreign Department Press, 1875. First edition, issued with 45 photographs. Large hand-colored folding map ("Preliminary Map of Eastern Turkestan") in pocket at front, 3 inserted maps, and 45 mounted albumen print photographs. [ii], [iii], [i], 2, [2], 573, [1] pp. 10 7/8 x 8 1/4 inches (28 x 21.5 cm). Publisher's green cloth, titled in gilt on spine. Recased, ink numerals to contents leaf, a few chips to brittle leaves, adhesive stain to spine from removal of library label, photographs faded. First edition, issued with 45 photographs. Large hand-colored folding map ("Preliminary Map of Eastern Turkestan") in pocket at front, 3 inserted maps, and 45 mounted albumen print photographs. [ii], [iii], [i], 2, [2], 573, [1] pp. 10 7/8 x 8 1/4 inches (28 x 21.5 cm). Thomas Douglas Forsyth (1827-1886) was a British colonial administrator in India. As deputy commissioner of Ambala he had been instrumental in squashing the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857, but his barbarous reprisal against Kuka militants in 1872 (in which captured Sikh rebels were fired from cannon) lead to his demotion. He was subsequently appointed plenipotentiary to Yarkund - the capital of the independent Kingdom of Kashgaria in Chinese Turkestan. Forsyth had previously visited Yarkund in 1870 in an unsuccessful attempt to negotiate with the amir, Yakub Beg. He returned again in 1873. "This second expedition … established the amir's commercial friendliness towards the British and amassed useful geographical, botanical, and ethnological information on the region. On his return in 1874 Forsyth was made KCSI and was subsequently elected a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society" (ODNB) Forsyth's report is seen illustrated with either 102 or 45 photographs (as in this copy). The plate count calls for 45 and copies in the London Library and the British Library also only contain 45 photographs. The photographs include images of Kashgar temples, opium smokers, hunters and game, and various Yarkund natives and tradespeople. The final chapter presents "A Comparative Vocabulary of Some Dialects Spoken in the Territory of Kashgar, by Dr. H.W. Bellow" Provenance: The Explorers Club (bookplate, noting donation by James B. Ford, and blindstamp to title-page, map and elsewhere)

        A Silent Witness.

      London; Tinsley Brothers. 1875. First editions. 3 Volumes, 8vo. Author's own copy. Bound in exceptionally smart contemporary royal blue half morocco over marbled boards by Zaehnsdorf, top edge gilt. Gilt titles and decorations to spines. An elegant and stylish bit of high-end late Victorian book binding. Very good indeed. Internally clean, minor spotting to page edges. Marbled endpapers, bearing the author's bookplate to front pastedowns. Now mostly forgotten, Yates was a contemporary and correspondant of Dickens who made a lucrative and popular living penning racy melodramatic murder mysteries, guarenteed in a contemporary review to have "A murder or two in volume one, bigamy in the second, a suicide in the third." Which, all in all, sounds like a nice break from Geordie Shore.
