Guildford, Surrey, Corporation of Cork, 1876. 18.5 cm x 22.5 cm. XXX, 1191 pages. Original hardcover.

"Richard Caulfield's The Council Book of the Corporation of Cork from 1609 to 1643 and from 1690 to 1800 are proceedings of the municipal authorities of Cork as they took place. Caulfield's work is an attempt to provide a faithful record of history rather than a romantic version. He identified two methods of writing history. The first is to present the facts as they are and leave it to the reader to form his own impressions. The second is to present what the impressions have made on the writer's mind and present them to the reader. Caulfield intended to marry both methods together by presenting a series of samples and extracts to give a truer picture of the times. He used sources in the Library of the British Museum , the Bodlein library, Oxford , the Treasury of the Corporation of Cork and other sources. Richard Caulfield (1823-1887) was secretary, librarian and custodian of the Royal Cork Institution and librarian for Queen's College Cork. It is said of him that on several occasion he was chosen to referee the various sides in significant historical and theological disputes. He was acquainted with and respected by the members of the clergy, Cork city dignitaries, lecturers, professors and the student body of Queen's College who attended his funeral when he died at the age of 64."

        Benner's Prophecies or Future Ups and Downs in Prices

      1876. First Edition . BENNER, Samuel. Benner's Prophecies or Future Ups and Downs in Prices. Cincinnati: Published by the Author, 1876. 16mo, gilt-stamped pictorial brown cloth. $2000.First edition of Benner's guide to speculation in hogs, corn and other commodities.Farmer Samuel Benner found his finances obliterated by the 1873 panic and a hog cholera epidemic. Forced into retirement, Benner decided figure out what caused the economy to experience such drastic depressions, in the hopes that he would be able to predict them. After careful study, he came up with this work, in which he published a number of charts which presented price cycles for various commodities including pig iron, cotton, corn, and hogs. Astonishingly, Benner's predictions proved preternaturally accurate and E.R. Dewey, Director of the Foundation for the Study of Cycles, remarked that Benner's pig iron price forecast was “the most notable forecast of prices in existence.” For most of the 20th century, Benner successfully predicted the United States' major downturns and crises. While Benner himself felt that his cycles were divinely inspired, of particular interest to market theorists and Elliot Wave followers is the relationship of Benner's cycles to Fibonacci numbers and the Krondatieff cycle. Contemporary pencil owner inscription.Light scattered foxing to text, a bit of wear to cloth. An extremely good copy.

      Reading, Pa.: Owen's Steam Book and Job Printing Office, 1876. Twelve (of fifteen) original parts. Twelve handcolored lithographs colored by Strecker. Quarto. Original paper wrappers in various colors. Minor staining to a few wrappers. Very good. In half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. Parts 2 through 13 (1873-76) of the original fifteen-part set published between 1872 and 1877. Strecker was a funeral monument director and enthusiastic amateur naturalist. He formed one of the largest collections of North American butterflies and moths ever assembled, now at the American Museum of Natural History. This is his first work on lepidoptery. He originally planned to publish it in monthly parts, but quickly fell behind and only produced these fifteen parts in a six-year period. According to Bennett, Strecker's work is indeed rare, "only 300 copies were printed." It describes over 300 specimens of butterflies. His goal, as stated in the advertisement for this title, was the completion of one issue each month with an accompanying color plate, on which Strecker intended to fit "as many descriptions as possible." So dedicated was he to the publication of his work, he allocated all of his money earned from sculpting tombstones, to purchase the lithographic stone on which he then drew and engraved each illustration that was to accompany the monthly issue. At the time of his death in 1901, Strecker was considered one of the country's leading entomologists and, according to his obituary printed in the NEW YORK TIMES, "the most noted lepidopterist in America." Comprising over 375,000 specimens, he "owned the largest, most valuable, and in every way the most remarkable public or private collection of butterflies or moths on the American Continent..." (NEW YORK TIMES). His collection now resides in the Field Museum in Chicago. BENNETT, p.102. McGRATH, p.218. NEW YORK TIMES, Dec. 1, 1901. NISSEN 4021.

Die Einbände etwas berieben und jeweils mit unauffälligem Rest eines Bibliotheksrückenschildes auf dem Fußende. Die Tafeln insbesondere im zweiten Teil etwas feuchtigkeitsrandig im weißen Außenrand (offenbar papierbedingt, da umliegende Textblätter hiervon gänzlich unbetroffen). Dennoch insgesamt sehr gut erhaltenes Exemplar. Erste deutsche Ausgabe, selten. Noch im selben Jahr erschienen wie die englische Originalausgabe bei MacMillan in London & New York. Das zweifelsohne bedeutendste und einflußreichste der Werke WallaceÂ’: Es bildet bis heute die Grundlage der Biogeographie, die zwar als Wissenschaft bereits mit dem Erscheinen der Humboldtschen „Ideen zu einer Geographie der Pflanzen“ (1811) entstand, aber erst mit WallaceÂ’ hier vorliegendem Werk auch das Tierreich in seiner Gesamtheit erfaßte.

        Collection of Nine (9) Hotel del Monte Menus.

      Monterey: Hotel del Monte, n.y.. Mora (1876-1947) was the cowboyest cowboy of them all -- though born in Uruguay, not the U.S.; painter, illustrator, muralist, cartoonist, sculptor, photographer, author, historian and more, this multi-talented Renaissance Man also lived with the Hopi and Navajo in Arizona for a time, photographing, drawing and writing about their lifestyle. Group of nine (out of 12) printed menus, each narrow small 4to (4 3/4" X 10"), heavy buff card stock, (4pp). Very good. Mild age toning, with the last more heavily age toned on upper half. Mora drew 12 dramatic pen-and-ink local history scenes in 1933-34 -- one for each month -- for this local institution. (Mora spent the last 27 years of his life in the Carmel and Pebble Beach area.) The inner left page of each menu contains "A Word About the Picture on the Front Page" and brief description of the artwork, while the right-hand side contains the menu of the month. Alphabetically by title (not chronologically by month), the scenes consist of: The Harbor of Refuge, Heritage of a Romantic Past, Mañana, Monterey Surrenders, The Month Was December, Old Spain Still Lives, The Reward of the Pathfinder, Trails the Caballeros Rode and Yankee vs. Caballero. A near-complete collection of this famed hotel-marketing artwork. Very scarce.

New endsheets and flyleaves. Very good. Ex-library. Missing the large folding map and Plates C, D and E.

The original front flyleaf has a contemporary gift inscription. There is a skillful 2 inch long tissue repair to this page as well. The title page has 6 very faint thin marks. Occasional marginalia and underlining. Tape repairs and small closed and open tears in the margins of the pages and plates here and there. The longest tape repair is 4 inches long.

According to Howes "This route, explored in 1859, shortened the distance to California by 250 miles; it was adopted by the overland mail, pony express and telegraph. The report was submitted in 1861, but publication had to be deferred because of the Civil War. Portions however appeared in the author's The Shortest Route to California." Howes S508. Moffat 57 & 59.
