        Famine and other Indian Topics. With a photograph of Vizagapatam

      Madras: Addison & Co, 1877. Original photograph laid down as frontispiece, printed caption. [iv], 80 pp. 8vo. Publisher's green cloth, title gilt to upper board, a little soiled, discreet contemporary ownership inscription to title-page. Very good. Original photograph laid down as frontispiece, printed caption. [iv], 80 pp. 8vo. AN EARLY WORK ON DEFORESTATION AND CLIMATE CHANGE. Thomas's obituary notes that he "was an Indian civil servant, who, deeply impressed with the conviction that extensive engineering works, contructed and maintained by the Government, could alone cope with the evils of constantly recurring famines."He was appointed judge of Vizagapatam in August 1869 and held the position until 1882. During this time he devoted most of his energy to creating a harbor at Vizagapatam that would serve as a port for the central provinces of India. In this work, he addresses deforestation and its affect on climate and famine, namely that the increased prevalence of famine could be traced to the neglect of replanting the forests on the mountain slopes. "Thus we have ourselves caused the recent irregularity of the seasons - the droughts and the floods." OCLC: 436745383; cf. Minutes of the Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers, vol. 99, London, 1890, pp. 403-4

        The Various Contrivances by which Orchids are Fertilized by Insects.

      London: John Murray, 1877. - 8to. (7 ¾ x 5 ½ inches) Half titles. 5 full page woodcuts, 18 half-page woodcuts, 15 quarter page woodcuts (lightly toned throughout, loose front end paper). Original publisher's green cloth gilt (lightly rubbed, indentations, extremities bumped). Provenance: Manuscript ownership inscription of George Basalla to front free endpaper. Freeman's sale 1540 lot 177. Second edition. Considered by Darwin himself to be proof of his credibility after the controversial Origin of the Species was published. He wrote in a letter to his publisher, John Murray, that, "'I think this little volume will do good to the "Origin", as it will show that I have worked hard at details'. Later in his Autobiography he writes, "On May 15th, 1862, my little book on the Fertilisation of Orchids, which cost me ten months' work, was published: most of the facts had been slowly accumulated during several previous years. During the summer of 1839, and, I believe, during the previous summer, I was led to attend to the cross-fertilisation of flowers by the aid of insects, from having come to the conclusion in my speculations on the origin of species, that crossing played an important part in keeping specific forms constant. I attended to the subject more or less during every subsequent summer; and my interest in it was greatly enhanced by having procured and read in November 1841, through the advice of Robert Brown, a copy of C. K. Sprengel's wonderful book, Das entdeckte Geheimnis der Natur. For some years before 1862 I had specially attended to the fertilisation of our British orchids; and it seemed to me the best plan to prepare as complete a treatise on this group of plants as well as I could, rather than to utilise the great mass of matter which I had slowly collected with respect to other plants. My resolve proved a wise one; for since the appearance of my book, a surprising number of papers and separate works on the fertilisation of all kinds of flowers have appeared; and these are far better done than I could possibly have effected. The merits of poor old Sprengel, so long overlooked, are now fully recognised many years after his death" (Darwin 1876).).

        Jerusalem. The Emanation of the Giant Albion. 1804.

      Large 4to. [London: John Pearson, 1877]. Large 4to, 100 plates, printed in black and white, with black framing lines. Original blue-gray wrappers, textblock untrimmed, internally slightly foxed, wrappers mended at backstrip and at edges. Bookplate of Pamela and Raymond Lister. A wonderful facsimile of copy D (now at Harvard), limited to 100 copies per Bentley and Keynes but an old Quaritch catalogue stated 250 (an unlikely number). Bentley attributed the publication to Chatto but revised it to Pearson in his Blake Books supplement. The Rinder copy reproduced by the Trianon Press is in a smaller format and this large quarto has a much more imposing and appealing presence and seems to be a better facsimile - certainly this copy is clearer and more striking than copy C. Bentley, Blake Books, 76, and Blake Books Supplement, p. 88. As is well known, Blake made five copies of Jerusalem of which only one did he color , the other four all being b/w. A suite of 25 plates was also colored by Blake, and a few posthumous copies were printed in tints.

Adiuncta sunt Orphei illius carmina qui à suis appellatus fuit ho theologos. Item, Heracliti et Democriti loci quidam, & eorum epistolae.

      First edition of the first published collection of these early Greek philosophical writings, the whole => edited by Henri Estienne and from the Estienne press: An important Humanist gathering of surviving fragments from Empedocles, Parmenides, Xenophon, Cleanthes, Timon of Phlius, Epicharmus, and others, along with the letters of Heraclitus and Democritus -- with an emphasis on the aesthetics of their work. The preface is in both Latin and Greek, and the Latin notes are by Joseph Justus Scaliger.Schreiber calls this uncommon work "a volume of major importance to the history of Western thought, which rightly belongs on the same shelf with the first editions of Plato and Aristotle." Provenance: Armorial bookplate of Charles W.G. Howard on front pastedown with typed note that the volume was a gift of Sir David Dundas of Ochtertyre in 1877. Dundas (1799-1877) was a politician who also served as a trustee of the British Museum from 1861 to 1867 (DNB online).

        Mémoires d'un Gommeux Par Saint-Patrice [pseud]

      Paris: E. Dentu, 1877, 1877. First edition. OCLC records four locations (LC, Vanderbilt, BL and one in Italy). Fine copy.. 8vo, contemporary black morocco with coat-of-arms gilt-stamped on the upper and lower boards, gilt lettering and inner dentelles, a.e.g. Frontis and three plates. James Harden-Hickey's own copy of his third novel, Mémoires d'un Gommeux, with his quasi-bogus coat of arms and armorial insignias gilt-stamped on the binding. Harden-Hickey (1854-1898) was one of the most colorful and picaresque figures in 19th century Western literature. Born in San Francisco during the gold rush, he moved with his mother to Paris at an early age and during his formative years was effectively a Frenchman. He was flamboyant, adventurous and had serious delusions of grandeur, which he managed to in part fulfill by marrying wealthy women. He was made a baron of the Holy Roman Empire and years later when sailing the Atlantic, he noticed that the south Atlantic island of Trinidad had not been claimed by a country. He proceeded to claim it for himself. He took the title Prince James I of Trinidad and began selling Trinidad government bonds in New York City. The British seized Trinidad in 1895 and Harden-Hickey's dreams of his own country were over. He died in 1898 from an overdose of morphine in an El Paso, Texas hotel, a fitting end considering that one of the books he wrote was Euthanasia: the Aesthetics of Suicide (NY, 1894). In all Harden-Hickey wrote 12 books, several of them novels issued under the pseudonym Saint Patrice, and he edited the Paris newspaper Tribolet. Later bookplate of Jean-Marie Bernicat on the front paste-down and small oval ownership stamp of the same on the title-page.

        Grape Vines. Grapes And Grape Vines Of California.

      - [San Francisco: Edward Bosqui, 1877] San Francisco: John Windle, 1980. Folio, [64] pp., 10 color plates with text. A fine copy in quarter wine red morocco and cloth boards lettered in gilt. Limited to 25 copies for sale in a binding; this exact facsimile of the first California ampelography to show the grapes in superb color printing by the renowned printer Bosqui was reissued by San Francisco printers and binders from one of the few extant perfect copies (now at the Lilly Library). It is the rarest of American color plate books and this wonderfully accurate facsimile has an introduction by Kevin Starr. The edition was not completed and only 65 sets were released (of which 25 were bound). Zamorano Select (2010) 34A writes that "in his valuable introduction to the Windle facsimile" Kevin Starr provides historical background for the original edition. "Both as a work on viticulture and as a color-plate book, 'Grapes and Grape Vines of California' was an unprecedented achievement for a California press" as indeed was the facsimile which was so impressive that Harcourt Brace Jovanovich reissued it in a reduced format trade edition that went through two large printings before being remaindered.

        Lettera autografa firmata Leri 13 janvier (1860), 4 pagine in francese a François Buloz

      (1803-1877) direttore della Revue des Deux Mondes, importante editore, per 40 anni direttore della Rivista, ed amministratore della Comédie-Française - Importante lettera, inviata pochi giorni prima del suo ritorno al governo; comprende giudizi su Garibaldi, alla vigilia dell'accordo per la cessione di Nizza e Savoia alla Francia. Deluso per le conseguenze dell'armistizio di Villafranca (11 luglio 1859), Cavour aveva dato le dimissioni da Presidente del Consiglio; sarebbe stato richiamato il 21 gennaio 1860 per il suo terzo mandato, che avrebbe visto in marzo l'annessione al Piemonte dei ducati di Parma e Modena, della Romagna pontificia e della Toscana, a fronte della cessione di Nizza e Savoia alla Francia. «L'ajournement du congrès m'a non seulement forcé à renoncer à toute idée d'aller à Paris, mais il a été cause demon retour à Leri. J'ai du quitter Turin pour ne pas faire de l'opposition, et pour ne pas sanctionner par ma présence silencieuse une conduite que je crois dangereuse pour ne pas dire fatale. Le ministère, ou pour mieux dire un ministre pour se préserver d'une opposition que je ne lui avais pas faite, et que je n'avais nullement l'intention de lui faire est allé chercher des auxiliaires dans l'extrême gauche pour en faire des instruments de guerre contre moi. Après avoir inutilement aiguisé la plume de Brofferio, et tenté vainement d'organiser un comité électoral pour me nuire ; il a tenté de me détruire au moyen de Garibaldi. Le brave général aussi triste politique que bon soldat, s'est laissé persuader que j'étais devenu un réactionaire, et que par conséquent il ferait oeuvre de bon citoyen en annulant dans les élections l'influence de mes amis. La Nazione Armata n'avait pas d'autre but .». Cavour sostiene di avere rinunciato ad una battaglia politica e morale che avrebbe nuociuto al paese «elle aurait exercé une fâcheuse influence sur l'opinion publique de laquelle le sort de l'Italie dépend peut-être. J'ai mieux aimé me taire et laisser Mr Rattazzi jouir tranquillement des douceurs d'un pouvoir si chèrement acquis ». Gli è difficile indicare a Buloz una linea per la Revue des Deux Mondes, mentre per la questione italiana « je crois qu'il faut pousser à l'annexion sans indiquer les moyens à employer pour l'accomplir ». La lettera fu scritta nella tenuta di Leri, frazione di Trino Vercellese, dal 1822 proprietà della famiglia Cavour, dove lo statista usava ritirarsi nei momenti di riposo, e vi sperimentava le tecniche di coltivazione che intendeva fare applicare in Piemonte, informandosi spesso sull'andamento delle attività produttive; il borgo è in totale stato di abbandono dagli anni Sessanta del Novecento.

        DEEPHAVEN

      1877. Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1877. Original mauve cloth decorated in black and gilt, all page edges red. First Edition, first state (with "was" at the end of the 16th line on p. 65, later changed to "so"), of Sarah Orne Jewett's first book. In addition to so-stated "fourth" and "fifth" printings dated 1877, there were three earlier printings dated 1877 that do not designate the printing on the title page -- of 1280, 500 and 500 copies; whether the two p. 65 states are 1780/500 copies or 1280/1000 copies is unknown.~The author, of South Berwick, Maine, first began writing these tales sited in the imaginary "Deephaven" for the Atlantic Monthly in 1868, when she was only nineteen. The book was an immediate success; it came at just the right moment, when the rage for genre regional studies of America was at its height and when fiction in general was at a low ebb. It made her famous at a bound; it sent her to Boston and New York and Philadelphia; it made her a friend of the "Boston circle," particularly of Howells, Lowell, Whittier, and Thomas Bailey Aldrich... [K&H]~This copy is in near-fine condition, remarkably clean for this light mauve cloth: there is light wear at the spine ends, and one endpaper has some cracking. This is tough book to find in better condition, as it was cheaply produced with flexible boards. Blanck 10871 (mentioning green or mauve cloth; we have also seen terra-cotta -- no priority).

        Otras leyes por el pueblo (Autres lois pour le peuple) [Disparate de bestia]

      Paris: François Liénard, 1877 Paris: François Liénard, 1877. . . VG+. "Etching, aquatint, dry point and burnisher, image 243 x 355 mm. on bone-tone laid paper leaves, ""Goya inv. et sc."".- // Very good state, hardly toned, with margins a little trimmed (287x394 mm.) in comparison to those of its original presentation (295x 432mm.).- /7 Prov.: No data.- // The first time that Goya's engravings of the series of the Disparates, unpublished at the time of his death, were printed, was in the edition that the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando (Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando) commissioned in 1864. However, and due to various ups and downs, four of the original plates, which had been separated from the set at an earlier date, didn't arrive at the Academia and so these etchings didn't appear in that edition. Owned by the painter Eugenio Lucas, they were purchased after his death in 1870 by Edmon Sagote, and first printed in 1877 in volume IX of the Parisian L'Art. Revue hedomadaire illustrée, alongside the instalments of the article ""Goya, aquafortiste"" that Charles Yriarte wrote to provide context for the etching, before delivering the article that the magazine had requested from him about ""quatre planches de Goya, gravées à l'eau-forte, qu'on lui a présentées comme inédites, et qui seront publiées succesivement"", which he never got to deliver. In the magazine, at the moment of printing and lacking any other information, the etchings were entitled: Una reina del circo (A queen of the circus), Otras leyes para el pueblo (Other laws for the people), ¡Qué guerrero! (What a warrior!) and Lluvia de toros (Rain of bulls). The publication of the etchings may have been due to the interest shown by Paul Lefort, who in his catalogue of the work by the painter from Aragon, which appeared that very year, presented three of the four Disparates, from which he hadn't seen any impressions, but had seen the copperplates, which he didn't hesitate to accept as Goya's. Indicating that the plate corresponding to this etching was 218x328mm., he described the scene it presented in this way: ""Au désert, dans une vaste arène naturelle, un éléphant, privé de ses défenses, s'arrête devant un groupe de quatre personnages de mine soucieuse, les uns costumés en rabbins, les autres comme le sont les Maures de la Tauromachie. L'un de ces graves personnages présente à l'éléphant le livre des Tables de la loi, tandis qu'un second, d'un air mal assuré, parait lui offrir, mais en le dissimulant à demi, un énorme collier tout chargé de grelots""(1). Only when the artists' proofs of these plates were found, could it be seen that in the trial proof of this etching, kept at the Museo del Prado, in the lower margin of the image a title added in handwriting figured: Disparate de Bestia.- // Refs.: Lefort, 144; Museo del Prado, G03069.- // (1) Paul Lefort (1877): Francisco Goya, étude biographique et critique, suivie de l'essai d'un catalogue raisonné de son Suvre gravé et lithographié.- Paris: Librairie Renouard, p. 92-93, ref. 144."

        Grape Vines. Grapes And Grape Vines Of California.

      [San Francisco: Edward Bosqui, 1877] San Francisco: John Windle, 1980. Folio, [64] pp., 10 color plates with text. A fine copy in quarter wine red morocco and cloth boards lettered in gilt. Limited to 25 copies for sale in a binding; this exact facsimile of the first California ampelography to show the grapes in superb color printing by the renowned printer Bosqui was reissued by San Francisco printers and binders from one of the few extant perfect copies (now at the Lilly Library). It is the rarest of American color plate books and this wonderfully accurate facsimile has an introduction by Kevin Starr. The edition was not completed and only 65 sets were released (of which 25 were bound). Zamorano Select (2010) 34A writes that “in his valuable introduction to the Windle facsimile” Kevin Starr provides historical background for the original edition. “Both as a work on viticulture and as a color-plate book, ‘Grapes and Grape Vines of California’ was an unprecedented achievement for a California press” as indeed was the facsimile which was so impressive that Harcourt Brace Jovanovich reissued it in a reduced format trade edition that went through two large printings before being remaindered.

        Richard Wagner a Bayreuth (Richard Wagner in Bayreuth [First French Version]

      Schmeitzner, Chemnitz 1877 - The First French Edition of Nietzsche’s First Book on WagnerNIETZSCHE, Friedrich. Richard Wagner a Bayreuth (Richard Wagner in Bayreuth [French Version], Schmeitzner, Chemnitz, 1877. TP + [1]-197 + [199] = Fautes d’impression, 12mo. First French Edition in Original Wraps (Schaberg 28). There is little documentation regarding the beginnings of the second French translation prepared by Marie Baumgartner. [The first of Schopenhauer als Erzieher was never published.] Certainly, both Nietzsche and Frau Baumgartner were confident that if they got Richard Wagner translated, Schmeitzner would be able to arrange publication.Marie Baumgartner wrote to Nietzsche on 11 October 1876—only three months after the book's original appearance in German—to say that: "tomorrow the last pages of the translation will be in the mail and any day now the correction sheets should begin to arrive. Schmeitzner told me today that the book will consist of 12 press sheets and should be published by the end of the month." In the same letter, she noted that "you will be interested to know that Schmeitzner is in touch with book publishers in Paris, Rome and Moscow as well as London." The publisher was looking to broaden his network by using Richard Wagner in Bayreuth as the springboard for a trans-European business expansion.For two months, nothing happened. Then on 18 December Nietzsche wrote to Schmeitzner to ask: "How is the French translation coming?" Schmeitzner's reply, a month later, announced that the translation was finally ready. "The first copy will go to Frau Baumgartner as soon as the copies from Berlin—where they are being printed—reach me, which should happen any day now." He also reported that the book would appear in Italian bookstores at the beginning of February and in German bookstores by mid-February. Frau Baumgartner wrote to Nietzsche two days later, having recently heard from Schmeitzner herself. She claimed the delay was neither her fault nor the publisher's but was because "the printer in Berlin did not think he had to keep his word."Nietzsche received his copy of Richard Wagner à Bayreuth on 31 January 1877. The book had been printed with green card cover which had text identical to the title page except for the addition of an ornate border. The back cover listed advertisements for the four Unconventional Observations and for books by Overbeck, Widemann, and Fritze. The book's spine read: "Nietzsche: Richard Wagner à Bayreuth." and copies sold for 2.7 marks each. The title page included listings for bookseller/publishers who had become part of Schmeitzner's expanding European network from Paris, Turin, St. Petersburg, and London.The exact number of copies printed is uncertain. When Schmeitzner finally sold his stock of Nietzsche's books in 1886, he listed 967 remainders of the French translation. It is unlikely—but not impossible—that only 33 copies would have been sold, especially considering that this number would necessarily include the distribution copies for the translator, the author, and reviewers. On the other hand, it is highly unlikely that the French version would have sold more than the 232 copies of the original German version which had been purchased by that time. In all likelihood, Schmeitzner printed either 1,000 or 1,100 copies of this edition.The next day, Nietzsche wrote to Marie Baumgartner congratulating her on her skill as a translator and adding: "We all think that Schmeitzner was very clever. The steamship of the translation may well overtake the cumbersome freighter of the original." Next, he congratulated Schmeitzner, saying: "Let us hope that Europe will be kinder than Germany." Europe was not. (Schaberg, The Nietzsche Canon, pp. 51-53)CONDITION: An uncut & unopened copies in original wrappers. Near fine with Naumann stamp to front, housed in custom clamshell box.

Two-colour printed map on two sheets, each 758 × 535 mm, dissected into 16 panels and mounted on linen, folding into original green cloth-covered boards (234 × 140 mm), titled in gilt on the front boards, blind panelling to both. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Boards lightly mottled and with some skilful repairs at the edges, elastic retaining band renewed, minor worming at the foot of sheet 1, some professional reinforcement to the folds on the linen backing, but overall very good. First and only edition of this uncommon 1:6,400,000 scale map - just 3 copies on OCLC, Cambridge, and universities of Washington and Chicago - produced as Russia began its concerted expansion into the Central Asian khanates, considerably upping the stakes in the Great Game. A reduced version of the map was included in Demetrius Boulger's England and Russia in Central Asia published in 1879. The map covers the area from the Caspian in the West to Lop Nur in the East, taking in the Mustagh Pass to the South and extending North as far as Orenburg and Semipalatinsk, now Semey, Kazakhstan, encompassing the territories of present day Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, a large part of Kazakhstan, and areas of Mongolia, China and Russia.
