Nato a Pietrafitta in un piccolo paese nei pressi di Cosenza, affetto in giovane età da una malattia che ne impediva gli spostamenti, Bonaventura Zumbini acquistò da autodidatta una vasta cultura nel campo sia della letteratura italiana che delle letterature straniere.

Filippo Tomasso Marinetti, Fortunato Depero
1876. Visitors' Book believed to be from the offices of the Caproni aircraft manufacturer, Milan. Quarto book, half 'vellum' or similar, decorated boards with a few marks, one small area of paper residue, perhaps from a label, withal a handsome item. Small label inside front cover from the stationer, 'Cartoleria Fontana di G. Mazzi, Milano.' Most pages blank but around 10 with many signatures [between 12 and 18 to a page] of what appear to be military types, or engineers and airmen. One page at front with long sentiment - in Italian - which appears to relate to flying signed at foot. At the front of the book a page from another book has been inserted and pasted in bearing the signatures of F[ilippo] T[ommaso] Marinetti [1876-1944] Italian founder of the Futurist movement and fellow traveller of the Fascists. Before his name he has written 'Entousiasta'. Beneath his name is the signature of Fortunato Depero [1892-1960] artist, Futurist, writer and sculptor. Under his name he has added a note which seems to suggest he, like Marinetti is enthusiastic but he takes issue with the interior decor. Depero worked across several fields from graphic design to furniture. A further signature is Manlio Bertoletti, actor who appeared in a film of 1923 called 'Il Grido dell'Aquila' [The Cry of the Eagle], a Fascist propaganda film. No doubt someone more familiar with this period of Italian history, especially in the field of aviation would find many more interesting signatures. The book bears a couple of dates suggesting the 1920's. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

American Publishing Company, Hartford, 1876. First edition, first printing, first state (with "THE" on half title in 10-point rather than 14-point type) of one of the great masterpieces of American literature. Octavo, original blue cloth, peach endpapers, top edge gilt, illustrations in text by True Williams and others, printed on wove paper, with preliminary matter paginated [I]-XVI and front and rear triple flyleaves of laid paper. BAL 3369. Johnson, 27-30. MacDonnell, 39-40. MacBride, 40. In near fine condition with some light rubbing to the cloth. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Popular and controversial at the time of publication in 1876, Mark Twain's masterpiece The Adventures of Tom Sawyer has been adapted into dozens of film, television and theatrical productions. The quintessential tale of American boyhood established one of the most memorable characters in American literature who appeared in three later sequels including Twain's other most notable work, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. "The first novel Mark Twain wrote without a co-author, Tom Sawyer is also his most clearly autobiographical novel enlivened by extraordinary and melodramatic events, it is otherwise a realistic depiction of the experiences, people and places that Mark Twain knew as a child" (Rasmussen, 459).

1876. Paris, Imprimerie Nationale, Société d'Éditions Géographiques, Maritimes et Coloniales, and Tananarive, Imprimerie Officielle, 1876-1937. In five volumes (texte, atlas I-III, and supplément). Large 4to and folio (31 x 24 cm). 999 pp. [(i), 779; viii, 211]; 412 plates by Keulemans and others. Uniform dark blue cloth over marbled boards. Spines with two burgundy morocco labels with gilt titles. The complete bird part of the magnum opus of father and son Alfred (1836-1921) and Guillaume (1873-1957) Grandidier on the natural history, and history, of Madagascar. The whole work was published over a period of more than 80 years, and written by many specialists in diverse fields of zoology and botany, such as Vaillant (herpetology), and Mabille (butterflies), etc., sometimes in collaboration with the Grandidiers. Some parts were never completed, or announced but not published; others were reprinted, with or without re-editing. A complete collation of all the parts published, and their variants, is still wanting. This set comprises the bird section, which is complete and includes the much later published supplement. Volume numbering (and, hence, spine numbering) is somewhat confusing. A collation is as follows: Volume XII. Histoire naturelle des oiseaux. Tome I. Texte (1879). pp. [i], [1]-779; Volume XIII. Tome II. Atlas I. [(1876)-1879] 139 plates. According to Nissen, ZBI "Die ersten 40 Taf. von Faguet, Gélibert, Huet, Terrier wurden durch neue von Keulemans ersetzt" In this copy, the non-osteological plates are all by Keulemans, except 7 and 71-72 (by Huët & Faguet), 41 and … [Click Below for Full Description]

M.D. 1-436 pp. Pages are age-toned but remarkably clean unmarked by students annotations. Overall very good condition.

The complete bird part of the magnum opus of father and son Alfred (1836-1921) and Guillaume (1873-1957) Grandidier on the natural history, and history, of Madagascar. The whole work was published over a period of more than 80 years, and written by many specialists in diverse fields of zoology and botany, such as Vaillant (herpetology), and Mabille (butterflies), etc., sometimes in collaboration with the Grandidiers. Some parts were never completed, or announced but not published; others were reprinted, with or without re-editing. A complete collation of all the parts published, and their variants, is still wanting. This set comprises the bird section, which is complete and includes the much later published supplement.

Jules Verne
Philadelphia: Porter & Coates, 1876. Very Good condition. Please click on Item Description to see 59 photos and full condition description. CAPTAIN HATTERAS V1. AT THE NORTH POLE V2. THE DESERT OF ICE TWENTY THOUSAND LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS Written by Jules Verne and published by Porter and Coates, Philadelphia. These are early reprint editions and although undated were published between 1876 and 1880. The American publisher of the first editions of these works, James R. Osgood, auctioned off many--at least 400-- of his titles, stereotype plates, woodcuts, rights to publish, etc., in late March of 1876, so, likely, these books are likely a result of that sale. The plates used in the books are the same as those in the originals, though the number are reduced. This is a closely matching set--all with earth-tone colored covers. Porter & Coates also published The Wreck of the Franklin, but with this exception, these are the total of this publisher's works by Verne. There is a 32 page illustrated "List of Juvenile Works" by Porter & Coates in the back of Desert of Ice. It includes all their Verne titles as well as series by C. A. Stephens, Harry Castleman, J. T. Trowbridge and many others. These books have had enough restoration work to make them not only presentable, but readable and capable of being shown without worry about about them falling apart in your hands. These books have been rebound using superior materials (strong cloth hinges and better paste) and keeping the original covers and even the endpapers where possible (see description below … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, Imprimerie Moderne (Barthier), 1876. Grand in-8, 384p. Edition originale et unique, probablement à très petit tirage de cet ouvrage sur la maison Goelzer, créée par Philippe Goelzer dont le portrait est en frontispice. Envoi de Goelzer à sa fille, daté d'octobre 1876 avec un petit quatrain. On trouve très peu de chose sur cet ouvrage. A part les 4 exemplaires dans des bibliothèques parisiennes, peut-être des dépôts de la famille Goelzer directement, et un exemplaire dédicacé à son neveu dans la même reliure, on ne trouve pas trace d'autre exemplaire. La famille Goelzer semble avoir eu du succès jusqu'à la fin du 19e siècle, probablement jusqu'à l'apparition de l'électricité qui a remplacé tous les appareils à gaz (chauffage et éclairage). L'ouvrage est curieusement parsemé de poèmes, d'anecdotes diverses, pas toujours en rapport avec leur production, de nombreuses références maçonniques, etc. Reliure signée Alexandre Meyer, demi-maroquin rouge à coins, dos à nerfs très décoré, tête dorée. Papier uniformément jauni. Très bel exemplaire, ouvrage très rare.

Cramer, Carl Eduard, Swiss botanist (1831-1901).
1876. Large 8vo. 3 pp. on bifolium. In German, to the British botanist and publisher Alfred William Bennett (1833-1902), telling him that he has heard through "L. Hegnauer, who had the good fortune to stay with you some time, [...] that you are kindly going to identify for me some unusual tropical wood specimens that I have been researching anatomically [...]", apologising for not sending them sooner: "Now that at last I have a little more free time, I would first of all say how [...] grateful I am for your Memoirs. The wood will reach you soon, but I would like to draw your special attention here to nos. 1 and 2, then nos. 3 and 4, because most depends on the identification of these. All the specimens are transverse sections [...] The portions of no. 1 reveal a fairly tall trunk with a weakly spiralling and twisting longitudinal edge. No. 2 is, as its dark colour shows, steeped in Paraffin. Its trunk is like that of no. 3 (Tripteris?), with only weak grooves on the outside. Nos. 5 and 6 should rightly be distinguished. I wonder if 3 and 7 should also? All specimens are for you to keep [...]", wondering if Bennett can obtain for him "a piece of the stem of the Serjania with totally separate bodies of wood from 1 to 3 cm long and about 1 cm thick (I already possess a Serjania 2-3 mm thick)", with a sketch of the cross-section showing a cluster of stems within the main stem.
