        A Thousand Miles up the Nile

      London: Longmans, Green and Co, 1877. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. pp. xxv, 732, copiously illustrated with full-page plates and illustrations in the text from Edwards' own drawings, two colored folding maps (Egypt, Lower Nubia). In the publisher's original red cloth decorated with Egyptian motifs in red and black; all edges gilt. Recently rebacked (original spine retained); binding sound, contents clean and bright. Edwards (1831-1892) already had a successful career as a novelist when she traveled to Egypt for the first time in 1873 and discovered her lifelong passion. She and her traveling companion, Lucy Renshawe, hired a boat in Cairo and "sailed to Wadi Halfa, accompanying friends met on the crossing from Italy. While at Abu Simbel the party discovered, excavated, and described in detail a previously unknown small temple with a painted chamber. [The two women] also visited Syria, crossed the Lebanese ranges to Damascus and Baalbek, and traveled on to Constantinople" (DNB). On her return to England, Edwards read extensively about ancient Egypt and studied hieroglyphics before writing this book, based on her experiences and the detailed notes and measurements she made on the journey. It was the first general archaeological survey of Egypt's ruins and earned Edwards the admiration of the leading archaeologists of the day, as well as praise from the popular press for "its 'brilliant descriptions of scenery and the exactness of its information' and as 'a delightful, gossiping book'" (DNB). A recognized classic of travel literature, it has been reprinted many times, but is quite scarce in the first edition.

Being Thirty-Eight Woodcuts Illustrating the Life, Parables & Miracles of Our Blessed Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ, With the Proper Descriptions thereof, extracted from the Translation of the New Testament, by John Wiclif, Sometime Rector of Lutterworth. London: Printed at the Sign of The Grasshopper, by Unwin Brothers, The Gresham Press., 1877.First edition. One of 257 copies printed and signed by the Unwin Brothers. This being number 212. Two separate parts, each numbered and signed. The first being the prospectus with the title-page as above and [12] pp. (9 3/4 x 7 3/8 inches; 248 x 187 mm). The second and main part being the bible (10 x 7 7/8 inches; 253 x 200 mm) and comprising [3], 38, [3] leaves and with thirty-eight woodblock plates each facing a page of text. The text is printed in black with red initials on verso, recto blank. Woodblock plates are facing text, printed on recto, verso blank. Printed on special handmade paper, in Caxton Type No. 2. With a preface by A.P. Stanley.Original drab boards, bound to the style of the period. Boards stamped in blind, in a design taken from an early block book in the British Museum. Spine lettered in gilt. Two brass clasps, lacking the strap attachment. Top edge dyed maroon, others uncut. Boards a bit soiled and rubbed along edges. Spine with some chipping and some wear to head and tail-pieces. Prospectus in original printed paper wrappers. Some very light soiling. Overall a very good copy of this interesting production.This limited edition was produced for the occurrence of the Caxton Celebration of 1877. The original woodblocks dating sometime between 1470-1540 were purchased by the Unwin brothers and used to print the plates which pair up nicely with the facsimile text of Wiclif's New Testament of 1525. It is unknow what work these woodblocks were originally used for the printing of, as the have not been "recognized as belonging to any printed book"... "In issuing them, combined with a suitable descriptive text, our thought has been to produce, as nearly as possible, a counterpart of an old Biblia Pauperum, and thus form a fitting memorial not only of the Caxton Celebration, but also of the Wiclif Quincentenart." (Unwin Brothers, from the note by the printer).Herbert, 2008.HBS 66069.$2,500

        Ein mathematisches Handbuch der alten Ägypter. (Papyrus Rhind des British Museum). Erster Band: Commentar; Zweiter Band: Tafeln. Übersetzt und erklärt von August Eisenlohr.

      Leipzig: Hinrichs, 1877.. 3 Bll., II, 296 S. mit zahlreichen Abbildungen im Text; 24 Tafeln (Druck in schwarz-rot); gr. 8° (Kommentarband), Folio (Tafelband); gebunden, Orig.-Halbeinen der Zeit;. Bei beiden Bänden der Rücken der Pappbände wohl erneuert und mit Halbleinen verstärkt. Beim Tafelband ist der Rücken zum Teil angeplatzt. Sonst guter Zustand beider Bände. // Der Papyrus Rhind ist eine altägyptische, auf Papyrus verfasste Abhandlung zu verschiedenen mathematischen Themen, die wir heute als Arithmetik, Algebra, Geometrie, Trigonometrie und Bruchrechnung bezeichnen. Er gilt neben dem etwas älteren, aber weniger umfangreichen Papyrus Moskau 4676 als eine der wichtigsten Quellen für unser Wissen über die Mathematik im Alten Ägypten und wird auf etwa 1550 v. Chr. datiert. Der Papyrus ist benannt nach dem schottischen Anwalt und Antiquar Alexander Henry Rhind, der ihn 1858 in Luxor, Oberägypten erwarb. Die Schriftstücke wurden wohl wenig zuvor bei illegalen Grabungen auf dem gegenüber von Luxor westlich des Nils liegenden Gebiet Thebens in oder nahe dem Ramesseum gefunden, genauere Umstände sind nicht bekannt. August Adolf Eisenlohr (geb. 6. Oktober 1832 in Mannheim; gest. 24. Februar 1902 in Heidelberg) war ein deutscher Ägyptologe. 1877 erwarb er sich große Verdienste um die Mathematikgeschichte durch seine Arbeit über den Papyrus Rhind. /lager

        Excellent and scarce Autograph Manuscript Signed, 4 pages 4to, n.p., Sept. 1877

      - This is the complete fair copy of his 12-stanza poem, "In the Old South Church". It begins, "She came and stood in the Old South Church a wonder and a sign, With a look the old time sibyls wore, half-crazed and half divine." In conclusion the final stanza is, "So long as Boston shall Boston be, and her bay-tides rise and fall, Shall freedom stand in the Old South Church And plead for the rights of all!" It is signed and dated, "John G. Whittier". This Church was founded in 1678, and is still in operation. Between 1872 and 1875 it was rebuilt on Boylston St. This poem was used as a dedication some 22 years later. It is boldly penned On four vellum pages. This first page is soiled but readable while the remainder is bold and beautiful. Quite scarce and interesting. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Le soleil

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1877. Second Edition. Half vellum. Very good. Second Edition. Half vellum. Three vols., 8vo (248 × 160 mm), pp. xx, 428; viii, 484; 19 plates (1 uncoloured, 12 coloured and 6 folding), and numerous engravings; occasional foxing, mostly affecting text; bound in half vellum with red lettering pieces; some rubbing, a split to joint of lower board at the the base of the first volume (c. 55 mm), still intact; otherwise very good. Second, augmented, edition.Pietro Angelo Secchi, SJ (1818-1878), Director of the Observatory of the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome for 28 years, was a pioneer in astronomical spectroscopy and among the first scientists to prove that the sun was a star. The Sun remained an interest for Secchi throughout his career; he made drawings of solar eruptions and sunspots and compiled a record of sunspot activity, and in observing solar eclipses proved that the solar corona observed during these events were part of the sun and not a phenomenon resulting from the eclipse itself.An accomplished inventor, he developed the heliospectograph, the star-spectroscope and the telespectroscope, and from 1863 began collecting the spectra of stars, accumulating some 4000 stellar spectrograms. From this information Secchi was able to produce a system for categorising stars according to type, the five Secchi classes, a classification eventually superseded by the Harvard system, developed by Edward C. Pickering in the 1880s, and which became the norm by the end of the 1890s.The present work on the Sun uses this knowledge of stellar spectroscopy to demonstrate the similarities between the Sun and other stars, as well as showing that certain absorption lines in the spectrum of the Sun are caused by aborption in the Earth's atmosphere. It contains beautiful early colour images of the surface of the Sun, solar eruptions and other phenomena, detailed spectroscopic charts, and engravings (with descriptions) of many of the scientific instruments employed by Secchi for his work, making it also a useful source on the history of astronomical measuring instruments, many of which he designed and built himself. It is unusual in being published in French (and in France), unlike Secchi's other works, in Italian.COPAC records six copies of this second, augmented, edition in UK institutions.

        Porträt Marie Grünewald, Ganzfigur auf einem Stuhl sitzend.

      1877. Bleistift, auf Velin, rechts unten datiert "1877", auf Untersatz montiert und dort bezeichnet "Marie Grünewald / war mit Math. Loretz in Weimar bei Preller". 24:16,7 cm. Provenienz: Nachlaß Friedrich Schmöle. Die schriftliche Anmerkung der Künstlerin läßt den Schluß zu, daß Mathilde Schmöle in Weimar eine Schülerin des Malers und Radierers F. Preller d. Ä. (1804-1878) war.. Die Malerin und Zeichnerin Mathilde Schmöle war seit 1876 mit dem Frankfurter Kaufmann F.P. Schmöle (1844-1924) verheiratet, der 1904 seinen Beruf aufgab, um sich ganz dem Malen und Reisen zu widmen. Nach der Vita ihres Mannes, der sich 1872 ein Landhaus in Kronberg erbauen ließ und dort in Kontakt trat mit den örtlichen Malern, könnte sie mit diesem gemeinsam bis 1905 Studienfahrten in die nähere Umgebung Frankfurts, nach Wetzlar und Braunfels sowie zwischen 1905 und 1913 nach Belgien und Holland, an die deutsche Nordseeküste, nach Sylt, Helgoland, in die Schweiz und nach Norditalien unternommen haben. Sie malte Landschaften, Porträts und Genrebilder. In engem brieflichem Kontakt stand sie mit Berta Riehl, Ehefrau des Kulturhistorikers und Novellisten W.H. Riehl, dessen Tochter Helene Riehl (geb. 1850) eine Landschaftsmalerin wurde. Über die Mitschülerin Marie Grünewald sind keine weiteren Informationen überliefert.

        Des sociétés animales. Etude de psychologie comparée

      Germer Baillière, Paris 1877 - In-8. [217 x 137 mm] Collation : 389 pp. Demi-chagrin rouge, dos à nerfs orné, couverture imprimée conservées. (Reliure récente.). Première édition. Alfred Espinas (1844--1922) est considéré comme l'un des précurseurs de l'éthologie. "Nul être vivant n'est seul. . La vie en commun n'est pas dans le règne animal un fait accidentel. . Elle est au contraire , et nous nous croyons en mesure de le prouver abondamment dans le présent ouvrage, un fait normal, constant, universel. . Le milieu social est la condition nécessaire de la conservation et du renouvellement de la vie. C'est là une loi biologique qu'il ne sera pas inutile de mettre en lumière." Pour l'auteur, "l'étude des sociétés animales forme non pas un chapitre préliminaire mais le premier chapitre de la sociologie". Très rare thèse de doctorat à la Sorbonne. L'ouvrage a été réédité l'année suivante, puis en 1935.

        On Horseback Through Asia Minor

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington, 1877. Two volumes complete - Volume One - xxxii, 352pp and Volume Two - xix, [1], 399pp, [1]. Slightly later half-calf and marbled paper over boards, semi-raised bands, spines in six panels, morocco title label to second panel, volume to fourth, remaining panels with central flower head and volute device, with volute corner pieces making up a frame, edges sprinkled red. Slightly rubbed to extremities, one or two small scuffs, but generally a bright set. Internally some light foxing to endpapers, folding map to volume two with old repair to reverse and is folded poorly, otherwise bright and clean. Previous owner's circular bookplate to front pastedowns. With a photographic frontispiece, and three folding maps. The Sixth edition (published in the same year as the first) of Burnaby's second work. "At the time of controversy in Britain over the Eastern question, in the winter of 1876-7, Burnaby, on leave, travelled in Turkish-ruled Asia Minor. With his faithful soldier-servant George Radford, he went from Constantinople via Angora to Kars and Batumi. He was welcomed by Turkish officials and others, hoping for British support against Russia. He wrote On Horseback through Asia Minor (2 vols., 1877). Another proudly British travelogue, its message was pro-Turkish and anti-Russian, asserting that, despite faults, Turkish rule was better than Russian, and that Russia was a threat to India. While he was writing the book the Russo-Turkish War began, and he demanded British support for Turkey. The publisher paid him £2500 plus further royalties and, despite radical criticism, his ‘panegyric upon the pashas’ (Alexander, 93) sold well" (ODNB). Howgego IV:B94. Reprint. Half Calf and Boards.

Fine apart from insignificant staining. </p><p>First Edition. Garrison-Morton 1932.1; 2490. Pasteur and Joubert&#39;s paper on anthrax marked Pasteur&#39;s full-fledged entry into the domain of medical research. Pasteur and Joubert challenged the experiments performed by Paul Bert, with which Bert claimed to have shown that blood from a diseased animal could produce death even after the anthrax bacteria had been killed with compressed oxygen. Pasteur demonstrated that Bert, using old blood, had confused anthrax with a form of septicemia caused by the previously unknown putrefactive microorganism Cl. septicum -- the first anaerobic pathogen discovered-- which becomes active approximately eighteen hours after death. Pasteur sought to clarify the relationship between anthrax and septicemia, and to demonstrate that Cl. septicum, like the anthrax bacterium, had a dormant spore phase resistant to environmental assault. He also noted the antagonism of Bacillus anthracis to other aerobic microorganisms, thus foreshadowing the development of antibiosis. DSB. Norman 1659. </p>

Laughable Lyrics, the fourth nonsense book, and &#39;last but not least&#39; (Muir, p. 147) &#39;included some of the best manifestations of Lear&#39;s rhythmic gifts and his flair for the invention of words&hellip;&#39; (Thwaite, p. 127). &#39;His work&hellip; provides an almost unique example of the perfectly matched text and picture&hellip; it was due to him that entertainment bulked larger than instruction in the late Victorian children&#39;s book&#39; (Bland, p. 256).

        Two Autographed Letters Signed and a Telegraph

      Cairo, 1877. unbound. Archive of two autographed letters signed and one telegram by the British General nicknamed for his victory in Beijing. Both letters were written on the day of his arrival in Cairo, and all of these items relate to the building of the Sudan railroad, which would be used by the opposition Mahdi to kill Gordon in the course of defeating the British. The telegraph is 1 page, 11 x 8.5 inches, pencil with pen notations (faded), announcing his planned day of departure: "I leave on Thursday. Gordon. Suez." Cairo, February 2, 1877. The first autographed letter signed is 1 page on onionskin, 6.25 x 4.75 inches, headed by hand "Mo. 85 So Re" (pinholes in the upper left, one rust-stained), authorizing a payment "for arrears," probably a bribe to speed work, Cairo, February 18, 1877. The second autographed letter signed is 1 page on onionskin, 6.25 x 4.75 inches, headed by hand "Soudan Railway No. 86" (pinholes in the upper left, one rust-stained), charging the Bank of Egypt for railroad materials, Cairo, February 18, 1877. The telegraph is fragile and wrinkled; good condition. The letters are both in very good condition with faint creases and tiny pinholes.

        BLACK BEAUTY. His Grooms and Companions. The autobiography of a Horse. Translated from the original Equine by Anna Sewell

      Jarrold and Sons. London. No Date. (1877). Jarrold and Sons. London. No Date. (1877). FIRST EDITION. 8vo.(6.8 x 4.5 inches). Engraved frontis. 8 pages of publishers adverts at rear. A good copy in the rare Carter binding variant 'B'. Original publishers green cloth with front board showing the horses head facing right, stamped in black and with gilt reins, within a gilt and black floral and rustic design and the title stamped in black letters, the lettering expanding from the middle of each word. Rear board ruled in blind. This copy has been professionally re-cased and re-backed with a new matching plain green cloth spine. Original brown coated endpapers. Neat contemporary previous owners inscription on the front free endpaper. The edges are a little rubbed and the pages are thumbed and spotted with a few corners creased where they have been previously turned down but overall an acceptable copy of this scarce first edition in a rare binding variant. In his book, More Binding Variants in English publishing: 1820-1900, the Bibliographer John Carter describes three bindings. Binding A and B he suggests are "undoubted primaries, while C may be a simultaneous style or may be a later one". The third binding is "comparatively common" (due to changes in the text of volumes found in that binding many now think that it was actually only used on early reprints of the book), but "A and B are so rare that deductions are inevitably conjectural". It is now generally accepted that the A binding was used for presentation copies and that the B binding was used for the regular published first edition.
