        La Colonisation française en Nouvelle-Calédonie et dépendances; comprenant les itinéraires de France à Nouméa, par l'Australie, le Cap et l'Amérique; le tracé kilométrique d'un voyage à pied autour de la Grande Terre; des statistiques sur la colonie et l'Australie.

      Challamel Aine, c., Paris, but Nouméa 1878 - Quarto, with an mounted photographic view of Nouméa, five folding maps printed in colour, a folding table and five lithographic plates; with a suite of 73 lithographic illustrations (including separate title-page) comprising a detailed route map of a walk through the island; a fine uncut copy in recent cloth. The first major work on New Caledonia, this is also the first book to have been printed in Nouméa, and is rare. An authoritative and detailed account of New Caledonia, it was published at the height of the communard deportations, when French political prisoners were exiled to the farthest reaches of the globe under French influence.Although formally published by Challamel in Paris, this was in fact completely printed in Nouméa with the exception of the five coloured maps, which were prepared in Paris. The second part of the work, a lithographically printed route map of 73 pages detailing a journey around the Grande Terre, is quite a remarkable achievement; it has its own title-page: "Itinéraire Kilométrique. Voyage a à pied en Nlle. Calédonie par Ch. Lemire 1877? Nouméa, Lith. - E. Melin".Not recorded by Ferguson, despite significant Australian content. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Journal of Mr Barclay's Exploration, 1878

      Adelaide, Government Printer, 1878 - Folio, 10 pages plus a very large folding map ('Plan shewing Explorations between Alice Springs and the Eastern Boundary of the Province': 570 x 1105 mm). Modern binder's cloth lettered in gilt on the front cover; a fine copy. South Australian Parliamentary Paper Number 209 of 1878. Barclay and his small party left Alice Springs on 31 January 1878; before turning back on 4 June, they had almost reached the Queensland border. Lack of food and water was the main problem, exacerbated on their return by a delay of five days spent shoeing the surviving horses (one having been eaten). 'The shoeing is a very tedious job, as we have no small shoes left, and it is a hard matter to fit them without a forge. The horses could not get through the range without it, or I should push on, as we are all but out of food of every kind, and are living on rats'. McLaren 5041 (not noting the dimensions of the map).

      Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1878. First Edition. 16mo; the 'No Name' format, issued in publisher's black 'V' cloth, with titling and decorations stamped in red and gilt on spine and panels; printed endpapers; 301pp, [2]. Cloth rubbed at corner tips, exposing the boards, with shallow loss at crown and base of spine; rubbing to cloth along rear joint, with discreet exposure of threading; binding sound and firm, clean throughout, with the decorative elements nicely preserved - a solid Very Good copy. An important volume in the "No Name" series, which featured American poetry and prose written by prominent authors whose identities were kept secret. The present volume, published in a tiny edition of 2,000 copies, features contributions by two authors whose works are strongly associated with the feminist movement: "Husband and Wife," by Christina Rossetti (pp.42-44), and most notably, "Success" by Emily Dickinson. While Dickinson was a prolific private poet, "Success" is credited with being the only poem published during her lifetime. Despite the flaws, an attractive copy of an important debut. BAL 118.

Der aus Prag gebürtige Rückauf studierte bei Proksch Klavier und trat bereits in jungen Jahren als Komponist hervor, bevor er 1878 nach Wien übersiedelte, wo er seine Ausbildung bei Nottebohm und Leschetizky vervollkommnete. "Von großem Einfluß auf seine weitere künstlerische Entwicklung war die Bekanntschaft mit dem Tenor G. Walter: einerseits hatte Rückauf als dessen ständiger Klavierbegleiter großen Erfolg [.], andererseits wurde er durch ihn zu zahlreichen Liedkompositionen angeregt. Abgesehen von seiner Tätigkeit als Dirigent des Evangelischen Singvereins in Wien (1899-1901) wirkte Rückauf neben seinem kompositorischen Schaffen als Liedbegleiter (zu nennen ist u. a. die Erstaufführung der 'Vier ernsten Gesänge', op. 121, von Brahms) sowie als Privatlehrer. Arthur Schnitzler zählte zu seinen Schülern" (ÖBL IX, 319).

Hellbraunes Leder mit Steh- und reicher Innenkantenvergoldung, signiert "Marius Michel" Nummer 3 von nur 50 Exemplaren "sur papier de Chine" (insgesamt 500). Vgl. Pia 840; Gay-L. III, 1146; Bilder-Lexikon II, 374: "Pikanteste Sittenschilderungen aus dem Reiche der Halbwelt". - Seltener erotischer Roman, der zuvor unter dem "Mémoires d'une demoiselle de bonne famille" erschien und vorgeblich von der Ich-Erzählerin selbst verfasst wurde, tatsächlich aber von Ernest Feydeau (1821-1873) stammt, der besonders durch den häufig aufgelegten Roman "Fanny" bekannt geworden ist. Jules-Adolphe Chauvet (1828-1905) illustrierte zahlreiche Ausgaben erotischer Literatur. Michel Marius (1846-1925; vgl. Fléty 121) war einer der einflußreichsten Meister des 19. Jahrhunderts und veröffentlichte auch selbst mehrere Bücher über Einbandkunst. - Exlibris von Jules Noilly. Schönes Exemplar, innen sehr sauber, nur der Einband minimal berieben und mit kleinen Fleckchen. - Rare erotic confessions, supposedly written by the lady who experienced all the adventures in French high society. The real author is though Ernest Feydeau. - Here one of only 50 copies on China with the frontispiece and 10 engravings in two states (printed in black and in red), bound by the famous Marius Michel.

        The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection

      London: John Murray, 1878. Sixth Edition . Original Cloth. Very Good/No jacket - as issued. 19 x 13 Cms (7.5" x 5"). PUBLISHING DETAILS: Sixth edition, twentieth thousand, of Darwin's great work, published by John Murray of London in 1878. 458 pages. Size; 19 x 13 cms (7.5" x 5"). Weight; 620g (22 ounces). CONDITION: I would rate this as very good. The original green cloth covers, with gilt titling to the spine, are clean and sound, with neatly repaired wear to the top and tail of the spine, where a little of the gilt tooling has been lost (see photo). The binding is tight and secure, with the inner hinges having been neatly strengthened (see photo). The text and fold-out diagram are clean, bright and free from foxing. There is a crease and a small bookbinder's label on the back pastedown (see photo). Altogether, this is a neat and tidy early printing of one of the most important books ever published. THE BOOK: 'can we doubt ... that individuals having any advantage, however slight, over others, would have the best chance of surviving and of procreating their kind?' In the Origin of Species, Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. His insistence on the immense length of the past and on the abundance of life-forms, present and extinct, dislodged man from his central position in creation and called into question the role of the Creator. He showed that new species are achieved by natural selection, and that absence of plan is an inherent part of the evolutionary process. Darwin's prodigious reading, experimentation, and observations on his travels fed into his great work, which draws on material from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters.

        Typed letter signed in full to the noted American band composer and leader Edwin Franko Goldman

      - Edwin Franko Goldman (1878-1956) was a band composer and bandleader living in New York. The letter inadvertently testifies to the newly-immigrated Schoenberg's struggle with the English language, but also to Schoenberg's uncompromising nature. In the end, Goldman decided to publish Schoenberg's article in German. See Schoenberg's letter to Goldman, February 3, 1934, published in Arnold Schoenberg: Sämtliche Werke Edited by Rudolf Stephan, Section IV: Orchestral Works. Series B, Volume 13, (Mainz: B. Schott's Söhne; Vienna: Universal Edition, 1993), p. xxiii. 1/2 page, single-spaced. Large octavo, 266 x 184 mm. Dated Brookline, Massachusetts, January 31, 1934. With Schoenberg's name and address handstamped at upper left corner. In English.Schoenberg comments about a commissioned translation, by Goldman, of a text he had originally written in German. He is not quite satisfied with Goldman's work and requests a new translation:"Dear Mr. Goldman, you find enclosed the translation you have send [!] me with your letter of January 29th. There you find also some marginal notes where I have signed some of the parts of the translation, by which I cannot be satisfied.I understand your intention in translating my words and I can well appreciate it. Surely it would be of a great advantage if all I have written could be said in such a manner that everybody can conceive it. But surely also: The thought would loose [!] so much of its dep[th] and of its prospect, that I am forced to renounce another succes[s] of my word, than an [in?]adequate- one."Manuscript annotation to upper right corner in an unknown hand (?Goldman's): "Ans." [?Answer].Slightly browned and stained; creased at folds; hinged at upper edge with archival tape. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Report of the Committee on the Inflexible. With Appendix

      London: HMSO,, 1878. Foolscap quarto. Contemporary half calf, marbled boards, neatly rebacked, red morocco label. 30 plates, mainly folding, many chromolithographic A little rubbed, light toning, a few clean splits to folds of plates, rear pastedown marked by the removal of a bookplate, overall very good. First and only edition, extremely uncommon COPAC locates just NLS and Liverpool, OCLC adds the Technische Universiteit at Delft. Inflexible was built to counter the Mediterranean threat of the Italian battleships Duilio and Dandolo, huge ironclad platforms carrying two pairs of 15-inch Armstrong guns each. Inflexible mounted more ordnance than any previous British ship, and her 24-in thick plate meant that she certainly lived up to her name. Most controversially she was designed in such a manner that if her unarmoured bow and stern took serious damage in action becoming flooded, the buoyancy of the armoured centre section of the ship should be such as to keep her afloat and upright. Questions about the validity of this theory were raised by Edward Reed, the member for Pembroke, formerly Director of Naval Construction, who had visited the Italian ships at their base. Failing to convince the Admiralty he publicised his claims in the Times, resulting in the suspension of work on Inflexible and her sister ships Ajax and Agamemnon, and the formation of a rapidly-convened committee to look into the matter. In their report the committee concludes that it would be hard for gunfire to completely flood the unarmoured, but heavily compartmentalised and partially cork-filled ends. However, if this was somehow achieved, the ship would remain stable, capsizing only at about 35° heel. Work was recommenced and the vessel, originally laid down in 1874 was finally commissioned, under Jackie Fisher, in 1881. The following year she took a significant rôle in the bombardment of Alexandria.

Pattern book for interior designers. Arresting album of plates depicting floral designs drawn from many sources, showcasing traditional patterns inspired by various sources (such as medieval tapestry and Islamic mosque tiles) alongside novel creations of the later nineteenth century.Frederick Hulme (1841-1909) was an artist and graphic designer who studied under Christopher Dresser and continued the tradition of producing pattern books for ornament and interior design. Also a keen naturalist, Hulme illustrated several books on the trees, flowers and butterflies of Great Britain. His contributions to scientific botanical illustration won him membership in the Linnean Society, and he later taught design at the London Architectural Association.Although published in London, the 52 fine plates in this book were lithographed in Paris by Dupuy.

        Lives of the Irish Martyrs [ Also, a Very Full and Complete History of The Penal Laws]

      New York: James Sheehy, 1878 New York: James Sheehy, 1878. First Edition. Numerous engravings, fold-out hand-colored map. 9 3/8" x 6 1/2", 751 pp. Green cloth with decorative gilt imprinting, all edges gilt. Light shelf wear, moderate foxing and toning, small scale corner bumping. But for the foxing, Near Fine; as is, better than Very Good Plus. A very handsome copy. Certainly one of the best preserved examples of the sought-after Myles O'Reilly account of famed Irish martyrs, this copy still boasts robust hinges (a common point of failure with this hefty 751 page tome) and a bright, nearly flawless binding. The total absence of previous owner's marks and the virtually original condition of the fragile hand-colored foldout map make this a copy for the serious collector of higher grades. Replete with engravings from the Irish countryside - as well as a remarkable frontispiece engraving of Oliver Plunkett - and treating as it does some several hundred Irish figures, this is a seminal treatise on the subject.
