        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.

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.

        Die geographische Verbreitung der Thiere. Nebst einer Studie über die Verwandtschaften der lebenden und ausgestorbenen Faunen in ihrer Beziehung zu den früheren Veränderungen der Erdoberfläche. Autorisierte deutsche Ausgabe von A. B. Meyer. In zwei Bänden. Komplett.

      Dresden, R. v. Zahn, 1876.. Oktav. Zeitgenössisches, goldgepr. Halbleder mit marmorierten Bezügen. XXVIII (+II), 579 (+1) S.; VIII (+II), 658 S., mit zusammen 7 (farb-)lithographischen, teils ausfaltbaren od. doppelblattgroßen Karten und 27 Holzschnittillustrationen auf Tafeln (vollständig). Mit handschriftlichem Besitzvermerk (‚Dr. Ant. Reichenow‘) in oberer äußerer Ecke auf den Vorsatzblättern beider Bände. 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. Zum Verfasser siehe u.a. DSB 14, S. 133-141.

        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.

        Report of Explorations Across the Great Basin of the Territory of Utah for a Direct Wagon-Route from Camp Floyd to Genoa, in Carson Valley, in 1859

      Washington: Government Printing Office, 1876. Hardcover. 518pp. Quarto [30.5 cm] Professionally rebound in sturdy green cloth with a paper title label mounted to the spine. New endsheets and flyleaves. Very good. Ex-library. Missing the large folding map and Plates C, D and E. There are library stamps on the edges of the text block, and there is a library label at the foot of the spine, and there are very sporadic library markings on the pages. 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. There is a loss from Plate I that measures roughly 1 inch in diameter, and obscures a small portion of the text and illustration. Light offsetting from the illustrations. The book is sturdy. 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.

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

      Paris, Jean-Baptiste Baillière et fils, 1876. 1876, 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
