        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1877 - 1877 Original Paperback Wisden, Tape to Spine. 14th Edition!

      Hi, This lot is an 1877 Original Paperback Wisden. It has tape to the spine but it is in Very Good Condition for the year. The tape holds the book together well and so is tightly bound. The covers are a bit dark with marks but you do not see 1877 covers too often. Inside however the book is nice and bright and clean, a very rare book. No restoration other than the tape applied to the spine. A hard year to find. 14th Edition.

        6 eigenh. Br. mit U. Meist Wien, 1877-1885.

      1877. Zusammen 24 SS. (Qu.-)8vo. Schöne Briefe an eine namentlich nicht genannte Adressatin: "Alles ist besser gekommen als wir hoffen durften! Littrow hat sich sehr erholt, meine Mutter die Operation gut überstanden, leichter verwunden als das erste Mal [...]" (Br. v. 17. VIII. 1877). - "Soeben habe ich Ihre gütigen Zeilen erhalten, welche mir eine freundliche Gabe in Aussicht stellen, für welche ich Ihnen einstweilen den herzlichsten Dank sage, so wie auch für die nachsichtige Beurtheilung meines Aufsatzes in d. N[euen] Fr[eien] Presse, welcher nach meinem Dafürhalten durch Weglassung des Hauptstückes in einen unzusammenhängenden Nonsens verwandelt schien [...]" (Br. v. 23. X. 1880). - "Mit dem Alter lernt man erkennen, daß es keine positiven Tugenden und guten Eigenschaften gebe und daß Alles nach persönlichem Eindruck beurtheilt werde. Ob dieser Eindruck ein für mich günstiger - ob meine Erinnerung als Treue oder Zudringlichkeit Ihnen erscheine - das hängt nicht von mir sondern von dem Grade geneigten Wohlwollens oder gleichgiltiger Vergessenheit ab, in welchem ich auf dem Thermometer Ihrer Empfindungen stehe [...]" (Br. v. 16. III. 1885). - Häufig unter dem Namen Otto August veröffentlichend, erschienen Aufsätze (in der "Neuen Freien Presse", in "Westermanns Monatsheften"), Broschüren und kleinere Abhandlungen vornehmlich volkswirtschaftlich-sozialen Inhalts der streitbaren Autorin; unter ihrem eigenen Namen veröffentlichte sie "Aus dem persönlichen Verkehr mit Franz Grillparzer".

        Les oiseaux de la Chine.

      Paris, Masson, 1877. In two volumes (Text and Atlas). Large 8vo. Text: half-title, title, vii, 573 pp.; Atlas: 124 finely hand-coloured lithographed plates by Arnoul. Uniform near contemporary burgundy morocco over red buckram boards. Spines with five raised bands and gilt title. Top edges gilt.= A quite rare and important work on the until then very poorly known Chinese avifauna, by the "father" (literally) of Chinese zoology, Abbé Armand David (1826-1900) and the French professor of zoology and ornithologist Jean-Frédéric Émile Oustalet (1844-1905). The fine plates, drawn and lithographed by Arnoul, depict the birds' natural habitats. Nissen states: "probably the most important systematic monograph yet written on the birds of China". 807 species of birds are described in this book, of which 249 are supposed to be particular to China, including new taxa. Of the illustrator, Arnoul, little is known. Even Ronsil has no information on him, although Arnoul was responsible for many fine bird plates as an illustrator and as a lithographer. The atlas does not include the title and six preliminary pages. Very light foxing and a small faint damp-stain to the margins of a few plates only. In other copies the plates are often browned or age-toned, but here the are nearly all exceptionally clean and fresh. Loosely inserted; a Wheldon and Wesley invoice, dated 9 June 1989. A very good copy. Nissen IVB, 221; Ronsil, "Iconographie ornithologique", p. 111; Wood, 311; Zimmer, p. 159.

Es muy probable que los autores de las biografías sean Carranza y Pelliza. Según las bibliografías consultadas, Cristiano Junior podría haber sido, no sólo el editor, sino también, quien realizó las litografías. 1 volumen(es)/volume(s) varias páginas

        Slave Trade. No. 4 (1877). Correspondence Respecting the Seizure of Slaves on board the "Rokeby" and "Koina" by her Majesty's Ship "Rifleman". London, Harrison and Sons, 1877.

      1877. Folio (210 x 320 mm). 16 pp. Cloth-covered spine. Rare documentary material on the interception of the ships and the seizure of slaves on board. British-operated ships continuously carried hajjis between Jeddah and ports in the Gulf, and the steamers were often used for the transport of slaves, sometimes with the cognizance of the captain. "The system of issuing tickets by the agents of British vessels at Jeddah without any name being inserted thereon, and the absence of passenger lists, no doubt render it extremely difficeult for the masters of ships to ascertain whether any of their passengers are slaves; and [...] it is one which cannot but place the gravest obstacles in our way in the suppression of the Slave Trade [...] The majority of the inhabitants of the Hedjaz and Yemen, from highest to the lowest, are interested in the Slave Trade, domestic slaves being a matter of necessity, servants not being procurable, what few there are bad [...] The Mahommedans consider the institution of slavery to be one of mutual benefit, and the slaves are geenrally the best dressed and best fed members of the household [...] It is very difficult to make any Mahommedan consider that slavery is a crime. He usually contends that the negro is recued from barbarism, and is taught the Mahommedan religion, and on that ground he defends the system; and indeed, he regards himself somewhat in the light of a missionary, and thinks he is extending his faith. The question is, therefore, beset with some difficulty [...]". - Occasional edge repairs. OCLC 872281698 (Internet resource only).

        BLACK BEAUTY. His Grooms and Companions. The Autobiography of a Horse. Translated from the Original Equine.

      First edition, first printing. Inscribed presentation copy from the author to her cousin Emma. Publisher's original brown cloth with decoration to the upper board and spine embossed in gilt and black. Carter's variant B binding. Engraved frontispiece after C. Hewitt.

Previous owner's circular blindstamp to the coated front endpaper and some spotting to the front blank, otherwise clean and bright throughout. Inscribed by Anna Sewell in black ink on the front blank "For Dearest Cousin Emma / with the Author's fond love / Christmas 1877". With two autograph letters signed from the author to "Dearest Cousin Emma". The first dated 26th Dec [1877] "I sent you a book on the 22nd which I hope arrived safely & brought my love with it.", the other dated 4th January [1878] and retaining the original mailing envelope "It is impossible for me to tell you all the pleasure that your letter gave me, but as you were an author before any of us, you may perhaps imagine it - I am delighted [underlined] that you like my book". Also present is a note from Grace Sewell annotated by Emma, sent on Anna's death "Dear Anna particularly requested her affectionate love to be sent to you". Housed in a purpose-made quarter red morocco case, with titles in gilt to the spine.An exceptional example in all respects. The recipient Emma Curtis, was herself an author of at least two books including "Annie Barclay" and "Jottings Of An Old Woman Of Eighty". Anna Sewell began writing Black Beauty in November 1871 whilst confined indoors, crippled with the illness that would eventually claim her life just a few months after the novel was published. As a result author inscribed copies are of the utmost scarcity.

Two of these had been mutilated, and they all came originally from the Zanzibar dominions, but they had remained long enough in Arabia to acquire a knowledge of the Arabic language [...] I make no doubt that vast numbers continue to be imported through the Persian Gulf by the Muscat Arabs; but the fact that Zanzibar slaves are to be found in the slave markets of Mekka, proved that the five or six Jeddah dhows that annually frequent the port of Zanzibar are not sufficiently watched [...]" (p. 35). More relevant material is to be found in the sections "Egypt" (pp. 7-12; includes correspondence relating to the traffic at Jeddah and in the Gulf of Aden and Red Sea); "Persia" (pp. 34f.; "Abolition of Persian Slave Trade Commissioner at Bushire"; "On Slave Trade and status of slaves"; "Commissioner in Gulf need no longer be maintained"); "Turkey.

        Autograph manuscript written in ink, with two pencil sketches, signed with his butterfly monogram. N. p., [probably early 1877].

      1877. 8vo. 3 pp. on bifolium. To "my dear Black": "Noch nicht! noch nicht! my dear Black! I am a little behind hand - curious aint it! That confounded Peacock Room has nearly ruined me and I have had to work frightfully to make up for it. It will be all right directly of course but I am woefully pushed. - Beseech HRH to be indulgent and appoint some day next week - say Saturday or Friday afternoon at about 5 'o'clock and I will try to be ready for her and shall be so enchanted to see her interest in what I have been doing - I think you will like the pictures - manage this my dear Black for your [xxx] [Whistler's butterfly monogram]. Just write a line to say it is all right". - The letter discusses a proposed visit from Princess Louise, the daughter of Queen Victoria and wife of the Marquis of Lorne. The Princess was herself an artist - a sculptor of note - and Whistler's correspondence indicates she took a keen interest in his work. The two pencil sketches appear to have been drawn before the letter was written. If they are by Whistler, we can assume that they have something to do with a commission he was working on for Princess Louise. The drawings seem to be preliminary sketches for a crest, which features a dog and crossed swords. - The stupendously opulent and beautiful Peacock Room was painted by James A. McNeill Whistler during late 1876 and early 1877. The entire room is decorated in oil colour and gold on wood, leather and canvas, its Orientalist theme crowned by Whistler's painting The Princess from the Land of Porcelain. The Peacock Room is now installed in the Freer Gallery of Art (Smithsonian Institution) in Washington D.C., but was originally designed for use as the dining room in the London residence of Frederick R. Leyland, a wealthy English shipping magnate. In 1904, after the house had changed hands, the American Charles L. Freer, founder of the Freer Gallery of Art, was able to purchase the contents of the room, have it dismantled and shipped to his home in Detroit, where it was installed in an addition to his home in 1905. In 1919 it was once more dismantled and transported to its permanent location in the Freer Gallery in Washington, D.C. - Slightly stained.

        THE CHILD OF THE CAVERN; or, Strange Doings Underground

      1877 - Translated by W.H.G. Kingston. Numerous Illustrations. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1877. Original brown cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt, all edges gilt. First British Edition of the tale that was also published as THE BLACK INDIES and as UNDERGROUND CITY. The unusual tale takes place deep in a Scottish mine.~The peculiar wildness of Jules Verne's imagination shows with startling effect when he selects Scotland and its sober-minded people as scene and characters for his latest characteristic extravaganza. He describes a mine of fabulous wonders by and of superhuman powers, and then he has a plot that would furnish plots for several exciting novels. [from an early promotional piece cited in T&M]~The pirate publisher George Munro was the first to get out an edition in English, in his triple-columned self-wrappered "Seaside Library" in the Spring of 1877. This first British edition came out in October of that year: "Pictured on the front cover is Jack Ryan kneeling on the twenty-sixth landing down the gloomy shaft. Harfang the bird [owl] is also shown on the front cover and spine" [T&M]. This is a near-fine, bright copy (a few leaves standing slightly proud, faint fading on the blank rear cover).

A Poem, in nine Cantos with Appendices containing the Histories of the Princes of India, dedicated with gracious Permission to Her Majesty the Queen Empress of India. London, printed for private circulation only (by Maclure & Macdonald), 1877-1882.

With the portraits and the text of the cantos in elaborate and finely illuminated chromolithogr. borders (with gold); the other text leaves within red borders. With the extensive Persian and Hindi texts lithographed from calligraphic models. Contemp. green morocco, each board with large gold-tooled centre-piece representing the star of India, with in the centre the monogram "VRI" ("Victoria Regina Imperatrix"), gold-tooled fillets, gold-tooled spine with title and author in second and third of six compartments, gilt edges (signed at the foot of the front turn-in by Morley, Oxford). A sumptuous and extremely rare tribute to the British Raj and a detailed history of the princely families in India by the distinguished orientalist Edward Backhouse Eastwick (1814-83), prompted by the proclamation of Queen Victoria as Empress of India in 1876. The first volume contains three cantos, with a translation into Persian verse by Amir Jan, followed by a history of the Nizáms of the Dakan; the second volume contains cantos IV and V with a translation into Hindi verse by Kaviraja Syamala Dasa of Udaipur, followed by a history of the Rájpúts. - The work is beautifully decorated, and illustrated with fine photographic views of palaces, tombs, gates, etc., including the mausoleum of the Emperor Humayún, the tomb of Nizámu'd-dín, the caves of Ajanta, the Palace of Nizám, the Hall of the 66 pillars and the Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India. It further includes photographic portraits and finely chromolithographed coats-of-arms of several members of the English and Indian aristocracy. - The "List of subscribers to the Kaisarnámah i hind and distribution of copies", included in the first volume, lists only 107 copies, which explains its rarity. - Edward Backhouse Eastwick spent some six years in India, serving first as cadet in the infantry and later as interpreter, and another three in Persia. He published a number of well-received translations of Persian literary classics and wrote several books on the cities of India. - Some smudges and spotting, frontispiece portraits pulled loose from the title page, but still attached to the endleaves. The bindings show some wear, the first volume with some stains and scratches and one headband nearly detached. Overall in very good condition.

With 2 frontispieces, 37 other wood-cut illustrations both on full page plates and within the text and with three folding colour maps. Complete. 8vo, publisher’s original dark-green cloth ruled and decorated on the upper covers and spines in gilt and black, t.e.g. xii, 411; [x], 463 pp. A fine set indeed, very fresh, clean, crisp and beautifully preserved. As pristine and unused. Only the very faintest evidence of age. RARE IN THIS CONDITION, AN IMPORTANT, EVEN PRIMARY WORK ON CENTRAL ASIA. Schuyler, an American career diplomat, went to Turkistan in 1873 while serving as consul-general in St. Petersburg. Although the aim of his journey was to report on the political and social conditions to of the regions recently annexed by Russio, the result was no mere government study. Schuyler has produced an exceptionally detailed account of Central Asia, the Steppe, Syr Darya, Tashkent, Mussulman life, bazaars, trade, Samarkand, Zarafshan valley, Hodjent, Kurama, Khokand, Bukhara, Issyk Kul, Semiretch, Kuldja and the Russian foreign policy in Asia, their administration, Khivan campaign and its consequences. It also provides an exceptional comparison of the inhabitants living under the control of the Khans and those under Russian rule. Called “Monumental...a classic on the subject" by Yakushi.

Je serais de retour surement à New York vers le 1 mai. Envoie moi un télégramme afin que je le reçoive avant de m&#146;embarquer en bateau car je ne sais si je recevrai seulement une de tes lettres. Je te quitte et t&#146;embrasse bien tendrement du fond de mon c&#156;ur. On m&#146;appelle pour le train à bientôt mon chérie. Louis » [Attributes: Signed Copy]
