        Autograph letter signed ("R. F. Burton").

      Trieste, Consulate, 16. X. 1876. - 3 pp. Small 8vo. To the publisher and author George Bentley (1828-95), complaining that his "letter has certainly miscarried. I accept the conditions provided we print at once [.]". He asks for an "agreement to settle at the end of six months or a year and to allow me a dozen copies for friends. Could we manage to print without destroying the two old volumes. Of course you can take them to pieces and I will have them rebound when you have done with them [.]". He continues, "For corrections a single revise will suffice. Kindly let me have proofs in duplicate accompanied by the manuscript - which saves time [.]." He asks his opinion on illustration, and repeats that he has sketches and photographs suggesting that "perhaps the best way would be to prefix one to each volume, say Sir Charles Napier to vol. I and the photo of a Sindi girl to vol. 2 [.]". He offers to send them off at once if it suits.

WRECKED IN THE AIR to compete with a pirated edition published at or about the same time by Henry L. Shepard as THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND. PART FIRST, SHIPWRECKED IN THE AIR. In September 1875 Sampson Low, Marston, Low, & Searle published THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND in three volumes subtitled DROPPED FROM THE CLOUDS, ABANDONED and THE SECRET OF THE ISLAND. In November 1875 Scribner, Armstrong brought out their uniform three-volume edition which was printed in Boston using Sampson Low plates. Sometime before 31 March 1876 Scribner, Armstrong published their combined edition which sold for $3.00, half the cost of the three-volume set. Three other combined editions of THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND, all unauthorized, were published in 1876: a 650- page edition with 24 illustrations produced by Donnelly, Loyd and Company of Chicago; an abridged translation by Hawley Lee which had been serialized in AMERICAN HOMES was published by "Household Words" Publishing Company of Boston; and an abridged translation by Stephen W. White which had been published in THE EVENING TELEGRAPH was published in book form by the newspaper as a 25¢ paperback. The priority of these 1876 combined editions has not been established, but this Scribner, Armstrong edition is the more elaborate and least common of the four.

NUC locates only one copy (Illinois), OCLC locates only one copy (Cornell), and KVK locates three copies (British Library, Cambridge, and National Library of Scotland).Set in the eighteenth-century, the heroine, Gilmory Anstruther, is an appealing independent woman, who stands her ground firmly against a variety of adversaries. Mystery surrounds her birth, but hints are dropped that her father is an aristocrat. Her romance with the local miller's son enrages her scheming grandfather, who produces his own suitor for her hand. This is no less than Bonnie Prince Charlie, whose campaign the old miser has secretly been funding in exchange for his granddaughter's royal marriage. The Young Pretender turns out, however, to be an impostor, a notorious highwayman who has cheated the old man out of his gold. Gilmory's father is revealed to be the Duke of Gilmory, and she and the miller's son are united after a dramatic deathbed scene in which her grandfather begs forgiveness. Not in Sadleir or Wolff.

        Mort de Pepe Illo - 3rd composition] Plate F of Loizelet edition of "Tauromaquia"

      E. Loizelet, [Paris 1876 - An inimitable and intense Goya tableau depicting the death of a matador La Tauromaquia , Goya's magnificent series on bullfighting has a different emotional tone than the etchings of the horrors of war, the satires on human stupidites, vanities and fantasies because it is only a kind of registering without judgement of the ways of nature. There is nothing to deplore or regret or reform, there is only a dark fascination with the raw facts of life and death. In this plate, his third effort to show the death of the toreador Jose Delgado Guerra, known as Pepe Hillo, in 1801, Goya uses degrees of murkiness and a flash of light to create the sense of sudden shock, a freeze frame in which the impossible seems to have happened. The very popular matador is swung into the air on the horns of the bull, while the bull is lanced by the picador. Goya published 33 of the aquatints he created for "Tauromaquia" and put seven others aside. The seven additional plates were first published in 1876 in Loizelet's edition of the work, each with a capital letter in the upper right. This is plate F, and it is one of three plates concerning the death of Pepe-Hillo. Harris, v. I,p. 173 - 176 p. v.II, p. 306-308 & 356; Delteil 262; Hind 256. Etching and aquatint on fine laid "Arches" watermarked paper, 3rd edition.

        Group of 6 items, in French, (of La Croix Châtel, Beauchamps, North of La Haye-Pesnel, Normandy)

      1876 - relating to their property in La Croix Châtel and Equilly, and its subdivision under "the laws relating to equal hereditary rights" (see item 2), with many fascinating details and consequences, as listed below, together 23 sides 4to., Beauchamps or Villedieu, 1814 - some light staining and browning, slight damage to parts of items 2,3 and 6 (almost all easily supplied), last 13 lines of item 1 faint but can be made out (1) Gift of François Hubert, "merchant farmer", of property to his three sons-in-law (including Jacques Ange Guillaume Laurence), signed by them and his daughters, describing three somewhat scattered lots which the family have agreed are of equal value, one includes the farm house ("maison manable") but not the stables, the sons-in-law draw "bultins" from a vase to determine the order of a second draw for the lots themselves, with the result signed by all including the daughters in their maiden names, 6 sides 4to., Beauchamps, 15th February 1814. (2) Division of property of the late Louis Toussaint Laurence, farmer and "marchand tamisier" (sieve-monger), in four among his two sons, one son-in-law, and unmarried daughter Claire, the house itself is divided between lots 1 and 2, after the proposed division the family allow "a day for reflection . so as to make any lot larger or smaller", they then draw for possession as above, signed by all (one proxy) including Claire's mother (Claire Lepetit), whom Claire thanks in a postscript of 1822 on coming of age, 8 sides 4to., 22nd April 1820. (3) Sale of a "piece of excavated ground" ("bout de fosse"), by Jacques Corbin to Jacques Laurence (see 1), for 18 francs, omitted from the sale of La Corbinière at "La Curoy Chastelle" in September 1824, signed by both, 2 sides 4to., 1st January 1825. (4) 3 sides 4to., 10th April 1841, division by 3 lots of two pieces of farm-land (La Croûte and Le Jardin de La Croix) at La Croix Châtel, part of their inheritance from the late Claire Lepetit, among her son Louis Guillaume Laurence, daughter Claire (widow of Thomas Venisse), and son Jacques' son-in-law Pierre Rosselin, 3 sides 4to., 10th April 1841. (5) Re-registration of a perpetual charge on a collection of 5 properties including Les Corbinières and Les Grandes Corbinières, recorded in 1734 in favour of the Hospice Civil at Villedieu, amounting yearly to 32.097 decalitres of wheat, (about 70 gallons or 9 bushels), by 1869 shared between 11 named landowners of the Laurence, Fontaine, Corbin and other families, 2 sides 4to., Villedieu, registered at Avranches 13th May 1869. (6) Lease by Victor Joseph Desfontaines, employee of the Central Dairies in Paris, of all his properties at Beauchamps and Equilly (but not one at l'Augrinière), to Auguste Lehodey, for 9 years from Michaelmas last at 270 fr. p.a., signed by agent Angrain and the lessee, registered at La Haye-Pesnel 13th December 1876. The items include detailed descriptions of boundaries and neighbours, except for the last, where M. Lehodey "says he knows perfectly well what he is leasing and does not want either the areas or even the names of the pieces, whether detached or not". There are many references to marks ("devises") for the erection of party walls ("murs mitoyens"), thorn or willow hedges or fences, the hedges to grow for three years and then be regularly clipped. In (1) and (2) the measures are roods ("vergées", 1/4 of an acre) and perches (1/40 rood), by 1841 they are metric ("ares"). Some facilities cannot be divided, such as cattle-ponds, use of the cider-press, stone from ruins for making repairs, and rights of way, giving the "general clauses" a particular interest Several of the properties, such as La Corbinière, reflect the names of the associated families.

        The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

      London: Chatto and Windus, 1876 - Octavo. Original red cloth with border and cover design blocked in black and lettering in gilt, cream coated endpapers. Housed in a burgundy quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Extremities a little rubbed, spine very slightly darkened, shelf-wear to bottom corners of front board, superficial cracking to rear inner hinge but otherwise intact, text block solid, a very good copy, fresh and unrestored, scarce thus. Ownership inscription on front pastedown. First edition, published on 9 June, thus preceding the first American edition that appeared in mid-December by some six months. Twain chose to have the book published first in London to ensure copyright and perhaps also because he was more highly esteemed in Britain than at home. Oxford conferred an honorary doctorate on Twain in 1907, three years before his death, an honour grander than any he ever received in America. BAL 3367.

        Boswelliana: The Commonplace Book of James Boswell

      London - The Grampian Club, 1876 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Very scarce in original edition, commands up to 100 as a 1976 reprint. Hardbound volume in blue cloth covered boards with gilt title to the spine and gilt crest to the frontboard, frontispiece and fold-out facsimile of Boswell's commonplace book. James Boswell, 9th Laird of Auchinleck (October 29, 1740 - May 19, 1795) was a lawyer, diarist, and author born in Edinburgh, Scotland. His name has passed into the English language as a term (Boswell, Boswellian, Boswellism) for a constant companion and observer. Boswell is well known for the detailed and frank journals that he wrote for long periods of his life, which remained undiscovered until the 1920s. These included voluminous notes on the grand tour of Europe that he took as a young nobleman and, subsequently, of his tour of Scotland with Johnson. His journals also record meetings and conversations with eminent individuals belonging to The Club, including Lord Monboddo, David Garrick, Edmund Burke, Joshua Reynolds and Oliver Goldsmith. His written works focus chiefly on others, but he was admitted as a good companion and accomplished conversationalist in his own right. Condition: The binding is fairly tight and firm with both covers and all pages securely attached although the hinges are slightly strained. There is some wear to the extremities including bumping to the corners of the boards and top and tail of the spine, and some marks to the boards. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling markand odd spot. The front blank endpaper has been clipped and there is a bookplate on it. The fold-out facsimile is heavilycreased with someclosed tears. Overall the volume is in good only condition..
