        Histoire naturelle de Lacépède comprenant les cetacées, les quadrupèdes ovipares, les serpents et les poissons. Nouvelle édition précédée de l'élog de Lacépède par Cuvier. For more info about this item, see our RARE FISH BOOKS site

      - Paris, Furne, Jouvet et Cie, 1876. Superoctavo (270 x 172 mm), 2 volumes, pp. 12, 668, and 648 with 36 hand-coloured steel-engravings (Nissen, 1969), in splendid condition. Beautiful contemporary wine-red half-calf, including leather corners, with matching red marbled boards. Five gilt ruled raised bands on spines and gilt lettering. Second compartments read Cuvier followed by Histoire de Lacépède and third compartments with volume numbers. Other compartments with gilt decorations. Colourful marbled pastedowns, front and endpapers. A superb copy with all plates in top condition. Bernard-Germain-Étienne Delaville also known as Comte Delacépède (1756-1825), was professor in zoology (reptiles and fishes) at the Museum of Natural History in Paris. The introduction to the book, by Cuvier, gives excellent background information on Lacépède. He is described as a versatile genius, publishing works on music, physics and zoology. Lacépède was invited by the composer Christoph Willibald Gluck to write the music for the opera Alcyone. Being a great admirer of the legendary zoologist Buffon of the famous Histoire Naturelle (1749-1804), he contributed substantially to this work by writing the chapters on Quadrupèdes ovipares et Serpents ( 2 volumes), Poissons (5 volumes) and Cétacées (1 volume) ( B.M.N.H., 1903). The present book, of which the first edition appeared in 1839, is literally based on the contents of the eight volumes of Lacépède incorporated in Buffon's classic work. The new issue, however, has many footnotes with new information or views and uses the new classification of Desmaret. Apart of the scientific value, the text includes a number of interesting anecdotes. The excellent plates, showing the animals in lovely landscapes, are from Annedouche, Beyer, Mme Fournier, Manceau and after the painter Edouard Traviès. They cover the following animal groups: whales 5 plates, reptiles and batrachians 15 plates, fish 4 plates in volume one and fish 12 plates in volume two. Nissen,1969; B.M.N.H.,1903.

        Mark Twain's Copy. The Ancient Regime; Source Book for 2 of Twain's Major Novels

      New York: Henry Holt and Co, 1876. First American Edition. Hard Cover. Mark Twain's copy of Taine's book, signed by him and with his annotations on the last page of text, stating that he had read it twice: "Finished Jan. 29th" and beneath that note, "Finished Sept. 10th." Twain scholar Sherwood Cummings wrote of this book, "[Twain] not only referred to it during the next decade in his notebooks and correspondence, but borrowed liberally from it for material and incidents in both The Prince and the Pauper and A Connecticutt Yankee." Moreover, Twain scholar Stephen Railton (Professor at the University of VA) writes in his endnotes to "A Connecticutt Yankee in King Arthur's Court" [NY, Barnes & Noble Classics, 2005] (Endnote 13): "As Hank implies here and more explicitly on page 256, 'le droit du seigneur' (the privilege of the lord) was to have sex with an untitled woman on her wedding night before her husband. The list of aristocratic abuses here is derived from material Twain originally found in Hippolyte Adolphe Taine's 'The Ancient Regime' .....which was also a source for several other passages in the novel." Signed "Samuel L. Clemens / Hartford 1876" on front end paper, and with Twain's estate bookplate on front pastedown, signed by his executor, Albert Bigelow Paine. Please call for complete description of incidents and material in this book, which appear in Twain's novels. Light dampstain to the final few leaves; wear at spine ends, inner hinges stressed. A very good copy. [together with:] Reference copies of The Prince and the Pauper and A Connecticut Yankee, with pages bookmarked at passages sourced in "The Ancient Regime."

        Adventures of Huckleberry Finn [Manuscript copy]

      N.p.. Soft Cover. [Chapters 1-21, Hartford & Elmira, 1876-1880]. New York, 1992. A direct copy made from the original autograph manuscript, by Sotheby's, in case the manuscript should be lost again. Quarto, 666 leaves (xerograph on laid paper, watermarked "Strathmore Alexandra Brilliant 100% cotton fiber USA" on the Sotheby's letterhead). Three volumes, clasp bound. The final half of the Huckleberry Finn MS was owned by the Buffalo Public Library. The consensus was that the first half was lost forever. But on Labor Day, 1990, the first half of the MS of the great American novel was found in an attic in Southern California. It was sent to Sotheby's for sale (the hammer price would have been in the millions). The curator of the Buffalo Public Library, William H. Loos, showed proof that Twain had gifted the entire MS to that library. An agreement was reached and the Buffalo Public Library, at last, owned the complete MS of Huckleberry Finn. Sotheby's was allowed to make two copies of the lost MS. One copy will be Held by Sotheby's. The present copy is the only copy of this important manuscript in private hands. This rare hard copy of Twain's MS, includes many corrections, by the author, which are yet unpublished. For example, page 29 shows some unsavory words which were eliminated from the novel. Also, a previously unknown episode, regarding some ghosts and a dead man, was expurgated before publication. But that story was published in the June 26/July 3, 1995 issue of The New Yorker magazine. [Together with]: A typed letter signed, from Jay Dillon (formerly of Sotheby's) and attesting that this is the only available copy of the above manuscript. Provenance: Jay Dillard, 1992-2002; Robert Slotta of Hilliard, Ohio, 2002-2009; Charles Parkhurst Rare Books, Inc., 2009-.

        POETICAL WORKS OF PERCY BYSSHE SHELLEY. Edited by H. Buxton Forman

      London: Reeves and Turner, 1876. 4 volumes. The first of the Buxton Forman editions. Illustrated with frontispieces, one additional plate, and 5 facsimiles. 8vo, publisher's original sky-blue cloth with gilt pictorial designs by Dante Gabriel Rossetti on the covers, gilt lettering and gilt paneling to the spines. x l, 413, [1]; viii, 438; xx, 476, [1]; xix, 573 pp.. A very good, handsome and tight set, mild foxing to the prelims caused as usual by the pastedown offset, and very slight and uniform mellowing to the spines. A very well preserved set. THE FIRST OF THE HIGHLY IMPORTANT BUXTON FORMAN EDITIONS. This was the first version of Shelley that Buxtom Forman edited. Forman's goal was to lay before the public "as near an approximation as may be to the text that the poet intended to issue," a task which required Forman to decide on what authority to base the final version of any given poem. As he states in his preface, "In respect of books seen through the press by [Shelley], there ought to be no difficulty whatever, except as regards isloated words and stops; but unfortunately he did not revise while at press one half of the entire bulk of his poetry, several of the volumes having been printed in England while he was abroad, and read through the press by friends. As regards the proportion of his mature works, from 'Alastor' onwards, which had the advantage of his personal revision when in type, we should, I think, be making a liberal allowance if we assumed that he saw proofs of one third; and the largest of the volumes seen through the press by himself is infamously printed.

        The Hunting of the Snark.

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1876. Octavo. Original buff boards, titles to spine black, illustrations to covers in black, green coated endpapers, all edges gilt. With the dust jacket. Housed in a custom brown morocco solander box. Frontispiece and 8 illustrations by Henry Holiday with tissue-guards. Spine rolled, covers foxed, a little spotting to contents; an excellent copy in the lightly foxed dust jacket, with some loss to spine ends, a couple of chips to extremities, short closed tears to spine panel and tape repairs to verso. First edition, with the scarce grey dust jacket. The printed dust jacket for The Hunting of the Snark is not the earliest recorded, but it has considerable interest as a particularly well-documented example. Dodgson's letter of 6 February 1876 to his publisher, Alexander Macmillan, indicates the thinking behind its use: he asks that the book's title be printed on the spine of the paper wrapper, so that the book "can stand in bookstalls without being taken out of paper, and so can be kept in cleaner and more saleable condition". Being conceived of as a temporary wrapper at point of sale, the paper used for the jacket is inexpensive and uncoated, liable to foxing and wear, and was almost invariably discarded. Rather than repeating the decorative blocking of the front cover, as some 19th-century publishers did, Macmillan printed on the front panel a letterpress title laid out in the style of a title page and, on the back, advertisements for other Lewis Carroll books.

        Royal Asiatic Society Offprints. 400 Title Collection. 1876 to 1990

      1876, Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. A collection of over 400 rare and uncommon Offprints from the prestigious Journal of The Royal Asiatic Society. A huge and wide ranging selection that would prove very expensive to buy individually and be very time consuming to assemble, if you even could easily do so. A full list of the titles in the collection is available on request. The condition will reflect the fragile and ephemeral format of the production; very good overall. PLEASE NOTE: These are not reprints or extracts, they are rare Offprints, not extracts or reprints. An offprint is produced by the publisher's of journals in very small quantities, with the usual intention of allowing the author to present them to friends or colleagues and for review. The printing is done simultaneously with the main journal, and then they are bound up in specially printed wrappers with the author's name and title printed. They are considered quite collectable and desirable due to their intimate connection to the author of the work, rather than the more mass produced nature of the full journal. The Royal Asiatic Society is dedicated to the serious study of the culture, history and languages of Asia. Founded in 1823 by the Sanskrit scholar Sir Henry Thomas Colebrooke, and has counted many distinguished and important explorers, writers and eminent individuals among its members, including Sir Richard Burton (1821-90), Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), and Sir Wilfred Thesiger. A full list of the titles in the collection is available on request. Size: Octavo (standard book size). Item Type: Journal. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Royal Asiatic Society; Britain/UK; Inventory No: 196914.

        Nouveau traité élémentaire et pratique des maladies mentales, suivi de considérations pratiques sur l'administration des asiles d'aliénés

      1876 - de (4), IV, 732, 8 planches, Paris, Jean-Baptiste Baillière et fils, 1876, in-8, de (4), IV, 732, 8 planches, 1 carte, percaline bordeaux imprimé or sur le dos et à froid sur les plats (dos légèrement insolé), Nouvelle édition de cet important ouvrage qui fut publié pour la première fois en 1862. Cette édition contient, pour la première fois, des photographies de malades mentaux : 8 planches en photoglyptie représentant 33 types d'aliénés (maniaques, lypémaniaques, stupides, mégalomanes, fous impulsifs, déments, imbéciles et idiots et crétins). La carte finale propose une vue d'ensemble de la situation des établissements d'aliénés. Cet ouvrage trouve son origine dans le cours de psychiatrie qu'Henri Dagonet (1823-1902) avait créé à la faculté de médecine de Strasbourg. Suivant l'exemple de Pinel et d'Esquirol, il avait adopté une classification des maladies mentales basée sur l'observation clinique et sur la symptomatologie tout en considérant qu'une classification parfaite est impossible. Nommé médecin-chef de l'asile de Sainte-Anne à Paris (1867), il le réforma et y ouvrit des cours pour le personnel infirmier. Il s'agit d'un des tous premiers ouvrages de psychiatrie illustrés par la photographie. Bon exemplaire, très frais et en partie non coupé, dans son cartonnage d'origine. Photoglypties aux contrastes bien conservés. Relié en fin de volume : Bulletin mensuel de la Librairie J.-B. Baillière et Fils, de Mai 1876 (8, 4, 4pp.) Tampons Ex-libris du Docteur Carrier, de Lyon, sur les pages de faux-titre et de titre. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [AUTOGRAPH NOTE, SIGNED, FROM BEDFORD PIM TO FLORA BRABY, TRANSMITTING PHOTOGRAPHS TO HER FOR HER ALBUM]

      [London], 1876. Typical mailing folds, else near fine. Bedford Clapperton Tervelyan Pim served in the Royal Navy, as a barrister, an author, and most importantly, as an Arctic explorer. He was the first man to successfully travel by ship from the eastern side of the Northwest Passage to the western side. He also led an expedition in search of Sir John Franklin in 1850, and served under Edward Belcher in the western division of his 1852 Arctic expedition. In this short autograph note, signed, Pim writes to a friend who had likely asked for photographs of him for her scrapbook or album. He complies, as such: "My dear young friend Flora Braby I have much pleasure in sending you three or four Photographs for your album and one of myself in wig and gown which I have no doubt will amuse you - with kind regards to Papa and Mama I am Yours Sincerely Bedford Pim."
