Strong, William E
Washington: 1876. First edition. 2 folding maps, 7 line drawings, and 7 tipped-in albumen photograph portraits with fine manuscript captions. 143 pp. 1 vols. 4to. In the Yellowstone: "Such fishing I have never had before" One of the earliest descriptions of Yellowstone, being the account of a hunting expedition to the north-western territories undertaken by the author and six officers (plus a contingent of enlisted men) including US Secretary of War Gen. Wm. W. Belknap and US Inspector General R. B. Marcy (who fell ill and nearly perished on the trip), as well as Gen. James W. Forsyth, Lt. G. C. Doane, Gen N. B. Sweitzer, and Col. George L. Gillespie, whose photographic portraits illustrate the book. The party traveled some 5,000 miles (by rail, stage, steamer, and horseback) in 53 days, seeking elk, deer, buffalo and other game as well as wild fowl; due to the season of the year game was not as plentiful as hoped, but the abundance of trout exceeded all expectations, and almost 500 large ones were caught (see pp. 54-57). Another impediment to hunting were the "hostile Sioux [who] were constantly lurking around in great numbers;" it was perhaps prophetic that on September 3, 1875, they met and were entertained by General George Armstrong Custer of the 7th Cavalry at Fort Lincoln just nine months before the Battle of Little Big Horn. As befitting "one of the most famous sportsmen in the country" Custer and his wife and sister lived in great state on the post, surrounded by the General's hunting trophies, of which there were many. Circumstances prevented Strong from retaining … [Click Below for Full Description]

Au verso : trois études de Saint Jean-Baptiste à la plume. Joint : un feuillet portant une belle signature de Max Jacob précédée par un mot « oui ». « Voyons pour le pêcheur : le plus grand est celui qui sachant ce qu'est la pudeur de Dieu n'en continue pas moins à le blesser... » « Les péchés. Je vous ai vu. J'ai connu votre élégance qui ne peut tenir qu'à l'admirable pureté de votre âme. J'ai aimé votre présence et ma piété ne peut être que le désir de vous voir comme je vous sens et de vous sentir comme je vous pressens. Il ne peut être que le plus pur puisque il est le plus Scient, or la pureté est aussi la pudeur et la pudeur le reflet où reflète ce qui la choque. Et si le pur reflète l'impur songer à ce qu'il peut souffrir de ce qui veut pénétrer en lui. Voilà pour Dieu. Voyons pour le pêcheur : le plus grand est celui qui sachant ce qu'est la pudeur de Dieu n'en continue pas moins à le blesser. Exemple : moi qui ne pèche guère moins qu'autrefois maintenant je sais. Alors ? L'autre qui ne sait pas est excusable. Mais est-ce que nous ne sommes pas choqués par les grossièretés d'un innocent alors que nous lui pardonnons. Dieu souffre donc de tous les hommes et savants et ignorants et plus des savants parce qu'ils sont conscients ».

THE STATE ARMS OF THE UNION Published in 1876 by the "father of lithographed books" Louis Prang, and illustrated by Henry Mitchell, State Arms of the Union contains a chromolithographed title page depicting the Great Seal of the United States and seven color plates with 45 state and territorial coats of arms. The seals are reproduced six or seven to a page, one side only. The book was likely published for the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition. This slender hardcover volume was retired from the reference section of a public library and remains in reasonably good condition. The covers show fairly minor general wear; the front cover has two library marks in gold. The first page is detached and has library marks on the back and an hole-punch stamp of the library name at the top corner; there is another such stamp on one other page, slightly affecting one of the illustrations. The interior is otherwise quite nice, and all the other chromolithographs are in fine condition. An extremely rare bit of Americana, usually listing for around $1,500.00 Measures 10.75" X 7", eight leaves of heavy paper. Ships promptly & securely. [Attributes: First Edition]

: , 1876. Leather and cloth wallet bindings, showing various degrees of wear and light chipping, internally clean and mostly legible; one small leather address book (J. E. Dewey's?), covers detached and split at the spine; nine daguerreotypes in contemporary embossed and hinged cases, ranging in size from ~3" x 2-1/4" to ~3-1/2" x 3"; matted cabinet card in a modern plastic frame, with an MS note on the cardboard backing attesting that the woman in the photograph is the doctor's stepmother, Elizabeth Elvira Dewey. Five diaries belonging to Willis Alonzo Dewey, plus 29 diaries and one record book kept by his father, Josiah Earl Dewey (lacking 1872 and 1883); ~20,000 total words in Willis's diaries, ~80,000 in Josiah's. Of primary interest in this collection are the diaries of Willis Alonzo Dewey, a renowned homeopathic doctor in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Dewey attended New York Homeopathic Medical College from 1877 -1880, the period covered by these diaries, a time when homeopathy and the orthodox (allopathic) medical establishment were reaching an uneasy, and short lived, détente in their longstanding disagreements about the fundamental nature of disease and its remedy: homeopathy, arguably at its most popular stage then, was being accepted as a mainstream medical practice, while orthodox practitioners were adopting some homeopathic practices. After graduating in 1880, Dewey’s career included professorships at Hahnemann Hospital College (San Francisco, 1884 – 1893), where he also edited the journal, California Homeopath; holding the materia … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mit Stempeln am Titel, Vortitel und im Schnitt: „Ambassador College Library. Pasadena, California". Besitzvermerk und Exlibris von Ph(ilippe) Pascal, Albi 2011. Ein gutes Exemplar mit Geschichte. Der englische Forscher Richard Francis Burton (1821-1890) ist für seine Reisen und Forschungen nach Mekka und in Ostafrika (die Erforschung der Quellen des Nil) bekannt. Seine Reisen führten ihn aber in viele andere Länder. Er erlernte zahlreiche Sprachen und machte sich mit den einheimischen Kulturen vertraut. Er bestieg mit Gustav Mann als erster den Kamerunberg und erforschte das Nigerdelta und Dahomey. Burton war auch fasziniert von den Reisen du Chaillu´s, weswegen er 1875 nach Gabun reiste. Er erforschte das Pongo-Land und stieß bis ins Gorilla-Land vor. Die zweite Reise führte ihn von Fernando Poo (wo er 1861-1865 britischer Konsul war) nach Loando und Boma, und in weiterer Folge den Kongo stromaufwärts. Die Sklaverei an den Ufern des Kongo beschreibt Burton sehr genau. Die Werke von Burton wurden nicht ins Deutsche übersetzt. Die englischen Originale sind die einzigen Quellen.

Twain, Mark (Samuel L. Clemens)
American Publishing Company, Hartford, 1876. First edition, first printing, first state (with "THE" on half title in 10-point rather than 14-point type) of one of the great masterpieces of American literature. Octavo, original blue cloth, peach endpapers, top edge gilt, illustrations in text by True Williams and others, printed on wove paper, with preliminary matter paginated [I]-XVI and front and rear triple flyleaves of laid paper. BAL 3369. Johnson, 27-30. MacDonnell, 39-40. MacBride, 40. In very good condition with some very light rubbing to the cloth. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A nice example of an important book. Popular and controversial at the time of publication in 1876, Mark Twain's masterpiece The Adventures of Tom Sawyer has been adapted into dozens of film, television and theatrical productions. The quintessential tale of American boyhood established one of the most memorable characters in American literature who appeared in three later sequels including Twain's other most notable work, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. "The first novel Mark Twain wrote without a co-author, Tom Sawyer is also his most clearly autobiographical novel enlivened by extraordinary and melodramatic events, it is otherwise a realistic depiction of the experiences, people and places that Mark Twain knew as a child" (Rasmussen, 459).

(Oscar Wilde) Struck, Hermann
nd. Photo gravure on paper; paper 11-3/4 x 9 inches, plate 5-3/4 x 4 inches. 1 vols. Delicate and Sympathetic Portrait of the Young Wilde. Hermann Struck (1876-1944)is recognized for his extensive landscapes and portraits of noted personalities in early 20th century Europe, including Herzl, Ibsen, Nietzsche, Freud, Einstein, Rutenberg et al. He was born into an Orthodox Berlin family and subsequently studied at the Berlin Academy under Max Koner and Hans Meyer. He joined the Zionist movement at an early age and in 1903, after several study trips throughout Europe, he visited Palestine, and on his way back to Germany stopped in Vienna, where he was introduced to Herzl. It was this meeting that inspired the famous portrait etching of the Zionist leader. During World War I Struck served with the German Army in Lithuania, where he came in contact with Eastern European Jews and embraced their way of life. In 1923 he returned to Palestine and settled in Haifa. By now a master of the craft of etching, Struck taught graphic techniques to such fellow artists as Chagall, Liebermann, Israels, Corinth, Ury and Budko. His book, Die Kunst des Radierens (1923), a popular guide book for artists and connoisseurs, provides both technical explanations and practical instruction. Struck excelled as a portraitist. He also recorded landscapes, Jewish and Arab types and scenes from the Jewish diaspora. He spent time in England, and became a member of the London Societ of Painters, Etchers and Engravers. Matted and Framed.

Not often seen, with most collectors settling for a second or third issue (the first three issues were all published in 1876, with that date appearing on the title page). This copy can be distinguished as the earliest issue by the wove paper and by the frontis illustration being blank on its other side (on second and later issues, the verso of the frontis has the half title page printed on it).
