        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1876 - 1876 1877 1878 Paperback Wisdens with Facsimile Covers. VG

      1876. 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.

        Letters and Social Aims

      1876. First Edition . Signed. EMERSON, Ralph Waldo. Letters and Social Aims. Boston: James R. Osgood, 1876 [i.e. 1875]. Octavo, original terracotta cloth. Housed in a half morocco chemise and full morocco slipcase. $11,000.First edition, first printing, association copy, of the last volume of essays published during Emerson's lifetime, bearing the ownership signature of Emerson's neighbor, Jeanie M. LeBrun, and additionally signed for her by Emerson and dated by him in the year of publication, ""6 Jan 1876.""This was the last volume of essay published during Emerson's lifetime. By the 1870s, Emerson had faded and ""gradually slipped into a serene senility in which his mind finally became a calm blank"" (OCAL). ""A longtime friend, James Elliot Cabot, was enlisted by the family to help put Emerson's literary manuscripts in order and prepare his lectures for delivery and his writings for publication… Cabot and Emerson's daughter Ellen put together a final volume of essays, Letters and Social Aims (1876), some reprinted ('The Comic,' 'Quotation and Originality,' and 'Persian Poetry') and others drawn from Emerson's manuscripts ('Poetry and Imagination,' 'Social Aims,' 'Eloquence,' 'Resources,' 'Progress of Culture,' 'Inspiration,' 'Greatness,' and 'Immortality')… Emerson died quietly in Concord and was buried at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, close to the graves of the Alcotts, Hawthornes, and Thoreaus"" (ANB). First printing, with ""N"" on page 209 and with ""inviolate"" and ""choices"" on page 308 (changed respectively in the second and third printings to ""inviolable"" and ""choice""). Though this work is dated 1876, the first printing took place on December 16, 1875 and was first advertised on Christmas of that year in Publisher's Weekly. Myerson A43.1a. BAL 5272. This copy belonged to and bears the ownership signature of Jean M. LeBrun, a Concord neighbor of the Emersons, as well as the Thoreaus, Alcotts, and Hawthornes. LeBrun's signature is dated Christmas day, just days after publication, suggesting that this book may have been a gift to her—one that she embellished by securing Emerson's signature. LeBrun would later attain her own minor fame for a piece she wrote to the Boston Advertiser in 1883 (later separately published in booklet form) that responded to the 1882 first book-length biography of Thoreau. The biography was written by Frank B. Sanborn, yet another Concord neighbor who worked as a schoolteacher instructing the children of Emerson, Hawthorne, and James. Sanborn also proposed to Emerson's daughter, Edith, who rejected him. In his biography of Thoreau, Sanborn presented an unflattering and ungenerous portrait of Thoreau's mother. Jean LeBrun, in her piece for the Advertiser undertook to defend both Thoreau and his mother posthumously.Interior with only a couple faint stains, light rubbing to extremities of binding. A near-fine copy.

It is to be called Two Rivulets—(i.e. two flowing chains of prose and verse, emanating the real and ideal)… it will embody much that I had previously written & that you know, but about one-third, as I guess, that is fresh” (Myerson, 196). This is the second printing, one of only 650 copies, preceded by a first printing of only 100 copies. The albumen portrait frontispiece in this copy is laid in (rather than mounted); it is torn off at the bottom and unsigned. All copies located by Myerson have a signed photograph. Myerson A9.1.b. This copy belonged to Gertrude Traubel, daughter of Whitman’s close friend and literary executor, Horace Traubel, inscribed to her by her father’s friend Will Innes.Text slightly toned, one leaf dog-eared in the binding process, minor rubbing to original calf. A very good copy.

        Report of the Exploring Expedition... in 1859

      1876. First Edition . MACOMB, John N. and NEWBERRY, John S. Report of the Exploring Expedition From Santa Fé, New Mexico, To the Junction of the Grand and Green Rivers of the Great Colorado of the West in 1859. Washington: Government Printing Office, 1876. Quarto, contemporary three-quarter navy morocco, raised bands, marbled endpapers and edges. $6500.First edition of the account of Macomb and Newberry’s expedition from New Mexico to Colorado and the Grand Canyon, with 22 full page plates, including eleven chromolithographed plates, eight lithographed plates of fossils and three lithographed plates of landscapes, along with “one of the most beautiful maps ever published by the Army” (Wheat), association copy of Vannoy Hartrog Manning, a Confederate Civil War officer in the Civil War who later served as Mississippi’s Representative to the U.S. Congress (1877-83).“In June 1859 Capt. John N. Macomb, chief topographical officer in New Mexico, was ordered to lead an expedition northward along the Old Spanish Trail in search of the desired military road into Utah. Twenty thousand dollars was appropriated for the expedition, and Macomb was authorized to take along John Strong Newberry… Macomb [and] Newberry… made their way… across the tortured landscape toward the junction of the Green and Grand rivers. At one point their view swept across a wide expanse of the country and Newberry wrote that it was ‘everywhere deeply cut by a tangled maze of canyons, and thickly set with towers, castles, and spires of the most varied and striking forms; the most wonderful monuments of erosion, which our eyes, already experienced in objects of this kind, had ever beheld” (Goetzmann, 394-7). Macomb’s geographical report was initially issued without Newberry’s geological report (because Newberry was still working for the Sanitary Commission in the west), but publication was delayed for 15 years owning to the Civil War, allowing time for Newberry’s contribution to be included. The plates depict the various canyons and rivers the expedition encountered, as well as eight geological plates. The folding map, measuring 30 by 36 inches, “is one of the most beautiful… ever published by the army. Like Ives’ maps it was done by ‘Baron’ F.W. Egloffstein… Again he speaks of the ‘Big Cañon’ of the Colorado River, thus making it clear that the term Grand Cañon had not yet emerged… This is a landmark map” (Wheat IV, 142-3). Howes M179. Wagner-Camp 379b. Graff 2647. Farquhar 23. This volume was specially bound for Vannoy Hartrog Manning, who was a Representative for Mississippi in the 45th, 46th and 47th U.S. Congresses (1877-83) after serving the Confederacy in the Civil War as Colonel of the 3rd Arkansas Infantry and 2nd Arkansas Battalion. With gilt-lettered “Van. H. Manning” printed to the spine end.Text and plates very fresh and clean, several expertly repaired small closed tears to gutter edge of folding map, slight edge-wear, faint rubbing to boards. A scarce near-fine copy with a memorable provenance.

        The Council Book of the Corporation of Cork from 1609 tp 1643 and 1690 to 1800.

      Guildford, Surrey, Corporation of Cork 1876 - 18.5 cm x 22.5 cm. XXX, 1191 pages. Original hardcover. Good condition with some clear signs of wear and tear on external cover and page edges, some stains on page edges and some marks on pages inside. Includes record of Mayors and Sheriffs of Cork from 1690 to 1734 / A charter to incorporate the Guild of Wholesale Merchants / An account of how the Earl of Inchiquin was presented with his freedom / The appointment of Sir James Jeffryes as Governor of Cork / Proposal for Benj Pike to prove his right to the fishery of the river. "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."

        Recueil de mémoires, rapports et documents relatifs à l'observation du passage de Vénus sur le Soleil (Institut de France. Académie des sciences)

      Paris, Firmin-Didot et Cie puis Gauthier-Villars, 1876. 1876-1890, 1876-1890, , 3 tomes en 8 volumes in-4 (atlas 68 planches et annexe compris), demi-chagrin brun de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs, armes anciennement masquées en tête des dos, Édition originale de la totalité des publications de l'Académie des sciences autour de l'expédition astronomique française chargée d'étudier le passage de Vénus devant le soleil en 1874 : cette conjonction, qui a lieu deux fois tous les cent treize ans environ à huit ans d'intervalle, fut l'occasion de mettre sur pied un projet d'enregistrement photographique mené, entre autres, par le célèbre astronome Jules Janssen (1824-1907), qui embarqua officieusement, à bord de la mission japonaise dont il était chargé, un dispositif ingénieux de son invention : le très célèbre revolver photographique. L'expédition fit des observations à Nagasaki, Pékin, Saïgon, Nouméa en Nouvelle-Calédonie, l'île Saint-Paul dans l'océan indien et l'île Campbell à l'extrême sud des océans ; l'objectif astronomique put s'enrichir de multiples investigations dans les champs hydrographique, météorologique, géologique et zoologique. Ensemble d'une grande rareté, qui se compose comme suit: Le tome I (2 parties en 2 volumes) contient les procès-verbaux et les nombreux mémoires lus devant la Commission de 1872 à 1874 ; illustré de 3 grandes cartes dépliantes (passages de Vénus sur le soleil en 1874 et 1882) et de 4 planches gravées, dont l'une figure la lunette astronomique et un autre l'appareil photographique utilisé par Ad. Martin de Wolf. Le tome II (2 parties en 2 volumes) relate les missions de Pékin, de Saint-Paul, du Japon, de Saïgon et de Nouméa ; illustré de 26 + 35 planches, soit 10 planches de clichés photographiques originaux, dont l'une comprend des clichés du Soleil obtenus avec "l'appareil de le Commission du passage de Vénus", et plusieurs cartes et vues en lithographie, parmi lesquelles des représentations de l'Observatoire de Pékin. Les deux premières parties du tome III (2 tomes et 1 atlas) rapportent la mission de l'île Campbell illustrée de 6 planches + d'un atlas de 68 planches en lithographie d'études géologiques et zoologiques (55 planches de zoologie sur fond crème et 13 planches de géologie dont 10 d'observations microscopiques de roches, en couleurs et sous serpentes légendées). Enfin, la troisième partie du tome III (1 volume) contient tous les documents relatifs aux épreuves photographiques. L'Annexe paru en 1890 (relié à la fin de la 3e partie du 3e tome) fait le bilan des résultats obtenus (calcul des parallaxes, trajectoire de Vénus, etc.) Du point de vue de l'enregistrement photographique, l'expédition n'est pas une véritable réussite : en effet, comme le craignait Janssen, les appareils officiels embarqués pour les différentes missions ne sont pas similaires et ne permettent pas d'obtenir des photographies comparables. Face à cette appréhension, Janssen embarque son révolver photographique : "Although Janssen disagreed with the official prescriptions of the commission with respect to photography, "a spirit of discipline" compelled him to follow its prescribed methods during the expedition he was charged to lead to Japan. Nevertheless, in addition to the officially sanctioned instruments, Janssen brought along some unauthorized ones, including his controversial 'revolver'." L'appareil présente une innovation de taille : il ouvre la possibilité d'enregistrer un corps en mouvement. Janssen parvient à penser théoriquement la photographie comme un enregistreur de temps ; "J'ai eu la pensée de tourner cette difficulté au moyen d'un appareil qui permît de prendre, au moment où le contact va se produire, une série de photographies, à des intervalles de temps très courts et réguliers, de manière que l'image photographique de ce contact fût nécessairement comprise dans la série et donnât en même temps l'instant précis du phénomène" (Tome I, seconde partie, p. 296). L'invention préfigure le fusil photographique d'Etienne-Jules Marey et donc le cinématographe des frères Lumière... Pourtant, le révolver photographique ne compte pas parmi les appareils retenus par les responsables de la mission. En conséquence, non seulement Janssen ne put publier les résultats obtenus dans les compte-rendus de l'Académie des sciences, mais il eut, de surcroît, à faire face à une commission chargée d'examiner ses comptes de dépense en 1876.

        Notes of a Voyage from New South Wales to the North Coast of Australia.

      Glasgow: privately printed, n.d. but, 1876. Octavo, photographic frontispiece, eight lithograph plates and four folding lithograph maps and another map in the text;in original green cloth, bookplate of Rodney Davidson. A very scarce book, the only public account of an important expedition to Arnhem Land in what is now the Northern Territory. With a photographic portrait frontispiece of Napier himself.In 1867 Francis Napier joined the South Australian Government expedition under Captain Francis Cadell to the north coast of the state (now the Northern Territory) searching for suitable sites for settlement. Cadell had a long and swashbuckling career in exploration and trading: he had earlier won the South Australian prize for successfully navigating the Murray in a steam-powered vessel, had been involved in the Maori Wars, and in the 1870s was a whaler and trader in Fiji and neighbouring islands. 'Early in 1867 he was appointed by the South Australian government to lead an expedition to the Northern Territory to choose a site for the capital and an area for agricultural settlement. He examined the Liverpool River, went up the Roper River in a small steamer and visited Port Darwin, Anson Bay and the Victoria River. He spent most of the year in thorough investigation, but the instructions on which he acted were misdirected.' (ADB) His own report, published in the South Australian Parliamentary Papers for 1867, was openly criticised at the time.As a result, Napier's "Notes" were the only public account of the expedition and are an important document of the early contact and charting of the region. It was compiled from Napier's journal by his family and privately printed in Glasgow following his death in 1875. The plates, drawn with lithographic crayon, were done by one of Napier's brother, and are signed "JMN" Headband a little frayed, very good overall.

Prächtige zeitgenössische rote Halblederbände mit marmoriertem Deckelbezug, vergoldetem Rücken und marmorierten Vorsätzen. (Originalbroschuren eingebunden). (Handbuch der römischen Alterthümer, von Joachim Marquardt und Theodor Mommsen, 1-3). Ausgabe in einem prächtigen und repräsentativen Zustand! - Mommsen (1817-1903) studierte die Rechtwissenschaften in Kiel. Nach seiner Promotion im Jahre 1843 widmete er sich - ausgehend von seinen Studien zum römischen Recht - überwiegend den Altertumswissenschaften, die erst Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts langsam als eigene Disziplin entstanden. Seine "Römische Geschichte" erschien bereits 1854-1856 in drei Bänden, noch vor Mommsens Berufung auf eine Forschungsprofessur an die Preußische Akademie der Wissenschaften in Berlin im Jahre 1858. Im Jahre 1861 wurde Mommsen als Professor für römische Altertumskunde an die Berliner Universität berufen. Er verfasste unzählige kleinere Studien und Abhandlungen vor allem zur Geschichte, auch Rechtsgeschichte Roms von der Frühzeit bis in die ausgehende Spätantike. Als umfassende Buchveröffentlichungen sind, neben der "Römischen Geschichte", vor allem das für die althistorische Rechtsforschung überaus bedeutende "Römische Staatsrecht" und das "Römische Strafrecht" zu nennen. Daneben war Mommsen Initiator, Sammler und Herausgeber überaus bedeutender Quelleneditionen. Er "kam nicht von der philologischen Kritik erzählender Quellen, sondern von Jura, Numismatik und Epigraphik, also von den Realien her und verstand es in fruchtbarster Weise, Rechtswiss. und Gesch. miteinander zu verbinden" (Biograph. Wörterbuch zur deutschen Geschichte II, 1925). - Die einzelnen Bände sind Gustav Freytag, Adalbert Delbrück und Eduard Zeller zugeeignet. (Originalbroschuren eingebunden). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
