        Two Trips to Gorilla Land and the Cataracts of the Congo

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Low, And Searle, 1876. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Low, And Searle,, 1876. 2 volumes, octavo (218 x 140 mm). Near contemporary brown half morocco, marbled boards, raised bands to spines, titles to spines gilt, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Volume I: one coloured folding map as frontispiece, 17 illustrations in text. Volume II: engraved frontispiece with tissue guard, 4 plates, four illustrations in text, one coloured folding map. Contemporary owner signature to half-titles. Spines a little faded, otherwise a truly excellent set. First editions. In need of employment, Burton sought a diplomatic role, preferably as consul in Damascus. While this was denied, he was offered the same role but in Fernando Po (now Bioko). While Burton accepted the position on 27 March 1861, he considered the island to be '"the very abomination of desolation". He slipped away from the post at every opportunity for excursions on the African mainland or to meet Isabel in the Canaries or England' (ODNB). Burton remained at Fernando Po for four years before being transferred to Brazil and Two Trips to Gorilla Land collects Burton's travel and ethnographic writings from this time. The ground-work for Volume I was done in 1862: in March, 'inspired by the discoveries of Paul Belloni du Chaillu, he sailed for Gabon to look for gorillas' (Howgego). Anchoring in Libreville, Burton made excursions up the Gabon River, encountered various tribes, including the Mpongwe, as well as spent a week with the Fan people (believed by many to be cannibals). Volume II recounts a journey from Fernando Po to Loanga, outlines a short excursion to South America and the Burtons' stay in Sao Paolo, as well as describing Burton's journey up the Congo.

        A Journey To The Interior of The Earth [A Journey to the Centre/Center of the Earth]

      London; Ward Lock and Tyler, [1876]. London; Ward Lock and Tyler, [1876], 1876. Classic Sci-Fi. Pp.267 + catalogue. A very early edition, undated, but research shows this to be the second English translation of 1876 (by F.A.Malkson, who is noted on the preface)- the first English translation was in 1871, published by Griffith Farran; This is therefore the FIRST EDITION under this slightly amended title. A scarce printing well preserved in the publisher's pictorial brown cloth binding, blocked in gilt and black, with coated yellow endpapers. Some light, general wear, spine lean, neat owner label to flyleaf. A very good copy. One of Mr.Verne's most popular tales with an influence stretching across the works of Lovecraft and Burroughs right up to the present crop of writers who remain fascinated with the possibility of the vast uncharted catacombs 'neath our feet. In many ways Verne's work can be categorised as fiction aimed at 'filling dark, empty spaces', this being one of his more deft attempts.

        Rare, Important and Angry Autographed Letter Signed by a Flat-Earther

      London, 1876. London, 1876. unbound. 3 pages each measuring 8.5 x 7.75 inches, London, February 9, 1876. In this extremely rare and historically important letter, Hampden chastises an individual for being a non-believer in the flat earth philosophy, in part: "...What do you think would be said of that deluded fool that talked about the apparent motion of a railway train caused by the earth's rotation? How you dare to fool the public with such lies such as the apparent motion of this, that, and other which we see and know to move, I do not understand...only fools would venture to expose themselves in this disgraceful manner. No man but a contemptible liar would tell me no one ever really moved your place to roll. It was only the apparent progress he made by moving his legs as the earth rotated under him. I wonder you are not ashamed to call yourself a man and spew such trash." There is a strong possibility that this letter is part of the original surviving correspondence between Dr. Hampden and Professor Alfred Wallace, soon after the Bedford experiment. The date is certainly correct and the flow of the letter is consistent with others currently housed in the Academy of Science, especially a letter written to Mrs. Wallace at the height of the feud, which said: "Madam: If your eternal thief of a husband is brought home some day on a hurdle, with every bone in his head smashed to a pulp, you will know the reason. Do you tell him from me he is a lying infernal thief and as sure as his name is Wallace he never dies in bed. You must be a miserable wretch to be obliged to live with him. Do not think or let him think I have done with him..." Several folds; uneven browning on the first page. Still very good condition with dark, bold handwriting. English scientist of the Royal Academy who believed that the sun was only 66 miles from earth and that it was 32 miles in diameter. He vigorously promoted the Flat Earth idea in England during the 19th century and found great support in the scientific community through articles published in the Truth-seeker's Oracle and Scriptural Science Review in 1876. Though a gentleman of high standing in the scientific community, Hampden was known for his piety and abusive language. He once made a bet with naturalist Alfred Wallace on the outcome of a test of the flatness of water in the Old Bedford Canal. Both sides claimed the test confirmed their view, and flat-earthers to this day assert that "water surfaces have been proved to be flat." Feeling he had been wronged in the Bedford experiment, he buried Wallace in a blizzard of vitriolic pamphlets and letters.

And, both the first and second printings were available on the publication date in equal numbers (5,000 of each printing), making this an excellent substitute for the true first. & & One of the classic American novels, Twain';s bildungsroman follows the adventures of Tom Sawyer - and his friend Huck Finn -- in St. Petersberg, Missouri told with Twain';s characteristic and unmatchable wit and humor. It would become his best-selling book and its sequel, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," is arguably the greatest American novel of all time. & & "Mr. Samuel Clemens has taken the boy of the Southwest for the hero of his new book... and has presented him with a fidelity to circumstance which loses no charm by being realistic in the highest degree, and which gives incomparably the best picture of life in that region as yet known to fiction." (Contemporary Atlantic Monthly Review). Very Good +.
