        1876 1877 1878 Paperback Wisdens with Facsimile Covers. VG

      Hi, I recently purchases a rebind in fabulous condition, inside the binding were 1876 through to 1878 but it was in such good condition I decided to split them out and had facsimile covers added to them hence, and to keep them together ... This lot is a set of three Original Wisdens 1876 , 1877 and 1878 , Paperbacks with facsimile spines and covers in very good condition. The books are in very good condition, the pages are very clean and pretty much unmarked. There is a touch of foxing to the 1877 but it is only slight and to the odd page, the other two have minimal foxing. Although it used to be rebound there is not much trimming with nice margins. A fabulous set of 3 early Wisdens at a great price.

      Beitr. Biol. Pflanz., 2/2. - Breslau, J.U. Kern's Verlag (Max Müller, 1876, 8,(4), pp.123-310, mit fünf zum Teil farbigen Tafeln, Halbledereinband der Zeit Rücken erneuert feines Exemplar. First Edition of two Milestones of Microbiology! In 1876 Robert Koch (1843-1910) first obtained pure cultures of B.anthracis and described its complete life history. With Davaine (No.5165-66) he did much to prove that infectious diseases are caused by living reproductive micro - organisms. The postulates expounded by Koch on this occasion had fundamental importance and have become the bases on which bacteriology largely rests. The paper also marks the beginning of exact knowledge of bacterial infectious diseases. It is reproduced with translation in Med. Classics, 1938, 2, 745-820.Milestones in Microbiology, Ed. by. Thomas Brock (1961), pp.89-95 Garrison & Morton No.5167*) "Ferdinand Cohn "clearly saw that not all liquids or solids are sterilized easily. Instead of using this information to accept or reject the theory of spontaneous generation, he decided to find out what was responsible for this observations. His experiment with hay infusion was an enrichment culture. By boiling for a while, he killed all organisms that were sensitive to boiling water. Only heat resistant forms were left, and these could develop and he studied under the microscope. In this way he discovered a new species, Bacillus subtilis, and a new process, spore formation ... We know now that bacterial spores are the most heat resistant of all living organism ... We can also see here in Cohn's work the beginnings of the development of bacteriological techniques, such as the use of cotton for closing flasks and tubes. But probably the most important result of this work is that it was the direct forerunner of Koch brilliant researches on infectious disease." Milestones in Microbiology, Ed. by.

        Illustrations of the Manners, Customs, and Condition of the North American Indians. With Letters and Notes. Written During Eight Years of Travel and Adventure Among The Wildest and Most Remarkable Tribes Now Existing...with Three Hundred and Sixty Coloured Engravings From The Author's Original Paintings

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1876. Hardbound. VG, expertly rebacked with new spines and original publishers boards, retaining original endpapers with handwritten names and notes. Ornate art library bookplate in each volume. A very nice set of the first generally available colored edition. Some old darkening to the rear cover of Vol. 2, and some loss to the word "Indian" on Vol. 1 spine, and to the design to the left of the Indian on Vol. 1, not bad, but needs to be mentioned. A very nice set. Original red cloth covers with extensively gilt embossing and design of Indians on front covers and spines. Vol. 1: Colored frontpiece (same frontispiece found in Vol. 1 of the 1841 edition), tp., viii, colored folding map, pp. 1-264 pp., with 76 sheets of colored figures (numbering 1-114) . Vol. 2: frontispiece colored map numbered as plate 77 (same map found after the preliminaries in the first edition from 1841), tp, viii, 266 pp., Colored plates 77-179 (containing colored figures 115-312), and color sheet 180, which is the third map. This set measures 6.8" x 10.2". Although the title page claims 360 illustrations, the numbering does not bear this out. Folium Reservatum (copied from a sheet found in a copy of the first edition) laid-in between pages 126 and 127 (at base of second side, it states that Twenty copies privately reprinted, and on the front it claims it was only sent to "Scientific men,... who study MAN, will receive this addendum in this form, and, I believe, duly appreciate and protect it." It has to do with the technical aspects of a particular custom that had been previously referred to on page 126. ) Plates are not always bound in exact numerical order. A very nice set.

        A TRIP TO THE YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK IN JULY, AUGUST, AND SEPTEMBER, 1875

      Washington, 1876. 143pp. plus two folding maps, seven plates, and seven mounted photographic portraits. Quarto. Original three-quarter morocco and cloth boards, gilt ruled and lettered. Front hinge starting, leather chipped in places, corners and spine extremities worn. Contemporary presentation inscription on front free endpaper. Some wrinkling to photo mounts, images fine. Light tanning, scattered light foxing. About very good. A presentation copy, inscribed by Strong on a front fly leaf: "Hon. Jesse Spalding / Compliments of / Wm. E. Strong / Chicago / Nov. 16 1876." Spalding (1828-1904) was an important figure in the Chicago lumber business during the second half of the 19th century. Politically well connected, he was eventually appointed as a director of Union Pacific Railroad by Pres. Benjamin Harrison in 1882. An interesting journal of a fifty-three day hunting and fishing trip to Yellowstone via rail, stage, horseback and the Missouri River, undertaken by Strong in the company of Secretary of War William Belknap, Gen. Randolph Marcy and Gen. James Forsyth, in the summer of 1875. The narrative of the trip to Yellowstone includes descriptions of Salt Lake City and the Mormons, Virginia City and Fort Ellis, and the balance of the narrative is devoted to Yellowstone, with rapt descriptions of the beauty of the area. While hunting and fishing they killed three buffalo, five deer, shot scores of birds, and caught some 3,000 trout in the Yellowstone River. The portraits depict Strong, Marcy, Belknap, Forsyth, Col. George Gillespie, Lieut. Gustavus Doane, and Gen. W.B. Sweitzer, and the plates include sketches of Fort Ellis, hot springs and Castle Geyser, and Yellowstone Lake. Strong was a Chicago businessman who was brevetted a brigadier general during the Civil War, and who travelled extensively in the West. The Yellowstone National Park Archives has Strong's own copy of this book, in which he recorded the names of sixty-two friends to whom he presented copies, leading Dean Larsen to surmise that not more than a hundred copies were printed. The Streeter copy brought $250 in 1969, and then reappeared in 2001 at Sotheby's where it sold for $14,400; that copy is the last one we have seen at auction. A scarce account, accorded a "b" rating by Howes, and not listed in Flake. HOWES S1083, "b." TRAVELING THROUGH WONDERLAND, p.49. STREETER SALE 4101. GRAFF 4014.

        Syria and Egypt under the last Sultans of Turkey: being Experiences, during Fifty Years, of Mr. Consul-General John Barker, chiefly from his Letters and Journals, edited by his Son, Edward B. Barker.

      - London, Samuel Tinsley, 1876. Two volumes, 8vo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, ruled in gilt and black, covers ornamented in black; pp. xi, 366; viii, 338, 16, (advertisements, dated September, 1876); only very light marking to binding, internally, apart from occasional brown spotting, mainly to the beginnings of the volumes, a very good set in the original cloth; provenance: from Gloucester Reference Library with their stamp to front fly-leaf of volume one. First edition of a rare work, in the superior, first-issue binding (the second had only blind ornamentation). Half a century of diplomacy in the Middle East, during one of the more turbulent periods, when Muhammad Ali of Egypt challenged the central government in Constantinople and jointly ruled both Egypt and Syria against the Ottoman Porte. Born in Smyrna in 1771 (John's father had settled there for health reasons), Barker was educated in England. 'About 1797 he went to the Porte as private secretary to John Spencer Smith, British ambassador there. On 9 April 1799 he was commissioned by patent as pro-consul at Aleppo, and agent ad interim for the Levant and the East India companies. He was regularly appointed agent for the East India Company over the next thirty-three years. Barker became full consul for the Levant Company on 18 November 1803; he introduced vaccination into Syria in the same year. In March 1807 he fled from Aleppo, because of tension between England and the Porte, and, having previously entrusted his wife and children to him, took refuge with the prince of the Druses in Lebanon. He managed to carry on his duties from Haris and transmitted information between Britain and India. His diligence allowed news of the suspension of the peace of Amiens and of the landing of Napoleon at Cannes to be forwarded to India with remarkable speed, preventing the surrender of Pondicherry to the French. When peace between England and Turkey was declared, Barker returned to Aleppo, making a splendid public entry on 2 June 1809. In 1818 Barker travelled on leave to London via Marseilles, returning on 25 October 1820, and in 1825 was appointed British consul at Alexandria, arriving on 25 October 1826. He acted as consul-general in Egypt from 1827 and served formally in the post from November 1829 until 31 May 1833, when he left Egypt for his villa at Suediah [now Samanda?], near Antioch. At Suediah, Barker planted a garden, known throughout the East, where he grew all the fruits of the West, introduced many new species into Syria, and supplied new varieties to England, the most famous being the Stanwick nectarine, for which he received a medal from the Horticultural Society of London. He sent agents all over the Orient to collect cuttings of the best fruit trees and in 1844 visited England to introduce some of these exotic trees. He worked to improve silk and cotton culture, and promoted other enterprises in Syria. "A perfect gentleman", according to Neale, "an accomplished scholar, a sagacious thinker, a philosopher, and philanthropist." He died of apoplexy at a summer house at Betias, on Mount Rhosus, on 5 October 1849 (Syria and Egypt, 2.285). He was buried beside the Armenian church at Betias, where a marble monument from Genoa was left to his memory. Among his children was the orientalist William Burckhardt Barker' (ODNB). Not in Atabey.

One of just 100 copies printed, with a blank leaf between 'As a Strong Bird' and 'Memoranda', as well as a leaf of adverts to rear, but lacking the portrait frontispiece of the author. In contemporary light tan half morocco, re-backed in a darker morocco with blind decoration. Bright red and green marbled boards; yellow endpapers. No external title labels.Wear to boards, only lightly to more recent boards. Very good. A collection of pieces, both poetry and prose, written by Whitman after 'Leaves of Grass' but never published until this point, a few years after the life-changing stoke he suffered in 1873. Whitman describes it as 'almost death's book', but also dedicates the publication to the centenary of the foundation of the United States, declaring 'Has not the time come, indeed, in the development of the New World, when its Politics should ascend into atmospheres and regions hitherto unknown...'.

        Bret Harte Autograph Letter Signed 1876

      1876 - This is an autographed letter, not a book. The American author, Bret Harte (1836-1902), wrote extensively of pioneer life in California, with the short story "Luck of the Roaring Camp" his most often remembered. In this letter of May 16th, 1867, he mentions the corrected copy of "Gabriel Conroy" to be published in England. This was Harte's only attempt at the long novel (Bibliography of American Literature lists the publication date as May 27, 1876). Closing & signature are on the verso. Fold lines, marginal chip upper left, otherwise very good. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Hunting of the Snark and Agony in Eight Fits

      83+[1 ad] pages with 9 illustrations, including frontispiece, by Henry Holiday with tissue guards, page ends in gilt. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 5 1/4") bound in the original publisher's brown cloth with black lettering to spine and pictorial cover in black lettering. From the library of Marquis of Donegull First edition, First issue with "Baker" on page 83. The first printing of The Hunting of the Snark consisted of 10,000 copies.The Hunting of the Snark (An Agony in 8 Fits) is a poem written by English mathematician Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It is typically categorized as a nonsense poem. Written from 1874 to 1876, the poem borrows the setting, some creatures, and eight portmanteau words from Carroll's earlier poem "Jabberwocky" in his children's novel Through the Looking Glass (1871). Henry Holiday, the illustrator of the poem, thought of it as a "tragedy". The plot follows a crew of ten trying to hunt the Snark, an animal which may turn out to be a highly dangerous Boojum. The only one of the crew to find the Snark quickly vanishes, leading the narrator to explain that it was a Boojum after all. The poem is dedicated to young Gertrude Chataway, whom Carroll met at the English seaside town Sandown in the Isle of Wight in 1875. Included with many copies of the first edition of the poem was Carroll's religious tract, An Easter Greeting to Every Child Who Loves "Alice". The Hunting of the Snark was published by Macmillan in the United Kingdom in late March 1876, with illustrations by Henry Holiday. It had mixed reviews from reviewers who found it strange. The first printing of The Hunting of the Snark consisted of 10,000 copies. There were two reprintings by the conclusion of the year; in total, the poem was reprinted 17 times between 1876 and 1908. Carroll often denied knowing the meaning behind the poem; however, in an 1896 reply to one letter, he agreed with one interpretation of the poem as an allegory for the search for happiness. Scholars have found various meanings in the poem, among them existential angst, an allegory for tuberculosis, and a mockery of the Tichborne case. The Hunting of the Snark has been alluded to in various works and has been adapted for musicals, opera, plays, and music.Marquess of Donegall is a title in the Peerage of Ireland held by the head of the Chichester family, originally from Devon, England. Sir John Chichester sat as a Member of Parliament and was High Sheriff of Devon in 1557. One of his sons, Sir Arthur Chichester, was Lord Deputy of Ireland from 1604 to 1614. In 1613, he was raised to the Peerage of Ireland as Baron Chichester, of Belfast in County Antrim. He died childless in 1625 when the barony became extinct. However, in the same year the Chichester title was revived in favour of his younger brother, Edward Chichester, who was made Baron Chichester, of Belfast in the County of Antrim, and Viscount Chichester, of Carrickfergus in County Antrim. Both titles are in the Peerage of Ireland. He was succeeded by his eldest son, Arthur Chichester. A distinguished soldier, he was created Earl of Donegall in the Peerage of Ireland in 1647 (one year before he succeeded his father), with remainder to the heirs male of his father. He died without male issue and was succeeded (in the earldom according to the special remainder) by his nephew Arthur Chichester, the second Earl. He was the eldest son of Lieutenant-Colonel John Chichester, second son of the first Viscount. Lord Donegall had previously represented Donegal County in the Irish House of Commons. His eldest son, the third Earl, was a Major-General in the Spanish army and fought in the War of the Spanish Succession. He was killed in action in 1706. His eldest son, the fourth Earl, died childless and was succeeded by his nephew, the fifth Earl. He was the son of the Hon. John Chichester, younger son of the third Earl. Lord Donegall was created Baron Fisherwick, of Fisherwick in the County of Stafford, in the Peerage of Great Britain in 1790, and one year later he was further honoured when he was made Earl of Belfast and Marquess of Donegall in the Peerage of Ireland.His grandson, the third Marquess, served as Captain of the Yeomen of the Guard under Lord John Russell between 1848 and 1852. In 1841, three years before he succeeded his father in the marquessate, he was created Baron Ennishowen and Carrickfergus, of Ennishowen in the County of Donegal and of Carrickfergus in the County of Antrim, in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. Both his sons predeceased him and on his death in 1883 the barony of 1841 became extinct.Condition:Recased in original binding. The book plated of Marquessate of Donegall with the family crest pictured. Some occasional internal spotting, corners gently bumped else a better than very good copy.
