        Odds and Ends. Vol. 1, Nos. 2 & 3

      Mattoon, Il.: F.L. Horn. April and May, 1878. One quarto leaf folded to make four pages, apparently paginated with the previous issue: (1)6-8. A small stain on the first page, else fine. An "amateur" newspaper, on page 7 (or the third page of the newspaper) is an advertisement that reads as follows: "Base Ball Cards! 25 for 20 cts. Special rates to clubs. State position and name of club when ordering. Agents wanted! Send 3 ct. stamp for samples. Franklin L. Horn, Mattoon, Ills." Within our own little circle of baseball scholars and enthusiasts debate rages over the meaning of this little advertisement, with some convinced that this is an advertisement for business or trade cards, others that it indicates a previously unknown series of amateur baseball cards, and still others believing it was an advertisement for a stillborn project proposed by the printer, with no takers. The meaning of "baseball cards" is somewhat fluid. A few cabinet photographs were issued in the 1850s, and the sporting goods company Peck and Snyder issued a few cabinet photograph cards of teams in 1869-1870; but the first use of the term to indicate what we now consider "baseball cards" usually refers to mass produced player cards issued with tobacco products in the mid-1880s. Odds and Ends is an example of an "amateur newspaper," part of a movement that started around 1805 and continued, with fits and starts, until the Great Depression, with the "golden age" of the movement between 1870-1880, and beginning in 1867, with the invention of an inexpensive "novelty press." This item might provide a vital missing link to the study of early cards, or just be a dead-end in the evolutionary development of the hobby. At any rate, a fascinating and thought provoking item. .

London Missionary Society. 1879.” Gouache watercolor on paper 8 1/2” x 13 1/4”; 19” x 24” framed (measurements in inches) Even a century after Captain Cook’s death the sense of adventure and exoticism with which Europeans regarded the South Pacific and the Pacific Islands in general had not waned. English missionaries fulfilled many roles as they traveled the globe, including that of providing visual documentation of what they encountered. Cecil Gamlin was a missionary and an artist who worked not just as an English emissary to the islanders, but endeavored to return to Europe with images of the natives that would make them more familiar, and less a people to be feared.

        OSSERVAZIONI ATRONOMICHE E FISICHE SULL'ASSE DI ROTAZIONE E SULLA

      1878 - SCHIAPARELLI, G. V. "OSSERVAZIONI ASTRONOMICHE E FISICHE SULL'ASSE DI ROTAZIONE E SULLA TOPOGRAFIA DEL PIANETA MARTE: fatte nella Reale Specola di Brera in Milano coll'equatoriale di Merz durante l'opposizione del 1877." First printing. Contained in Atti della R. Accademia dei Lincei, Anno CCLXXV, 1877-1878. Serie Terza. Memorie Della Classe Di Scienze Fisiche, Matematiche e Naturali. Volume II. Roma: Coi Tipi del Salviucci, 1878. Illustrated with five lithographs, including a double-page areographic map, a map of the southern hemisphere, and a color plate showing four views of Mars. pp. 308-439. Text and plates are clean and fresh, although lightly toned at edges. Thick 4to. (1145 pp.) bound in green pebbled cloth, with series title stamped at spine. Small chips at crown and the lower joint is just starting; light soiling overall. During the great opposition of Mars in 1877 Schiaparelli observed the planet thoroughly using a Merz refractor; this exceptional instrument allowed Schiaparelli to detect even the smallest surface features which had been overlooked in earlier oppositions by larger telescopes. In drawing a complete picture of the areographic positions of the fundamental points for the construction of an accurate map, he stated that the interpretation of the phenomena observed on Mars was still largely hypothetical, varying among observers even when they saw the same details. He was the first to classify the features as "seas" and "continents." (But it was Secchi who first used the term "canal" in his observations of 1859.) Although Schiaparelli understood that the features he observed on Mars were stable, he was cautious in drawing conclusions on the nature of the surface of the atmosphere until he could establish that the seas, continents, and canals were identifiable with analogous terrestrial forms.

        A LOS HABITANTES DE CALABAZAR, CEJA DE PABLO, QUEMADO DE GIIINES Y RANCHO VELOZ [caption title].

      [Cuba]. Sept. 18, . 1878 - Broadside, 12 1/2 x 8 3/4 inches. Chip in upper left corner, not affecting text. Small tears in all edges, several repaired by tape on verso. Good. A rare and fascinating Cuban political broadside calling for an end to armed struggle but a beginning to a "struggle for ideas" at the conclusion of Cuba's "Ten Years' War," the battle for independence from Spain that lasted between 1868 and 1878. The broadside is addressed to the residents of the region around the north-central coast of Cuba, some 150 miles east of Havana. The text of the broadside is signed in print by Gabriel Aguilera y Zayas, Secretary of the Partido Union Constitucional (PUC), one of the two main political parties that developed out of the Ten Years' War. The PUC, which was a conservative pro-Spanish party led by prominent Creoles, sought a measure of local political autonomy while favoring continued Spanish control over Cuba. The text exhorts Cubans to partake in the ideological struggle that would succeed the armed rebellion, and urges them not to fall into lethargy but to continue the battle of ideas against radicals seeking independence from Spanish colonial rule. Due to their ephemeral nature, as well as the climate of the Caribbean, any such Cuban broadsides are scarce. No copies of this broadside are located on OCLC. Important evidence of the political factionalism and the strength of pro- Spanish sentiment in Cuba in the late 19th century. Rare, and possibly unique.

The first and only volume (nothing else was issued) consists of 3 parts: "Folk laws of Russians", "Folk laws of the Native people of the Asian Russia", and "Notes on the legal laws". The second part is especially interesting for its detailed descriptions of the folk laws of the Arctic peoples like the Yakuts, Laplanders, Samoyeds and Karelians as well as the Kirgiz. Apart from precise descriptions of the laws the authors give quite interesting accounts of manners and customs of these native people, their food and dwellings, clothes, occupations, family relations, religion, holidays etc. The work was executed by the special Commission at the Ethnography Department of Russian Geographical Society. The editor of the book was the Secretary of the Commission Paul Matveev (1844- ca. 1900), Russian lawyer, censor and publicist, specialized in Slavonic history. He published several books - about Folk laws in Samara region (1877), Bulgarian history (1887), life of writer Nikolay Gogol (1894) and others, as well as numerous articles in Russian historian magazines and Russian version of Brokhaus encyclopaedia. In the Preface he observes the history of the legal system in Russia regarding Native tribes and people of Asia , Northern Europe and Siberia. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Res. and Farm (100 Acres) of L.E. Osgood, Centerville, Alameda Co., CAL. - Res. and Farm of Ashley Cameron, Centerville, Alameda Co., CAL.

      Oakland, California 1878 - A hand-colored lithograph in superb condition with township maps of Pleasanton, Haywards Park Homesdtead Union, Washington Corners and Vallejo Mills on the reverse, from the, ‘Official Historic Atlas Map of Alameda County, California. Compiled, Drawn and Published from Personal Examinations and Surveys by Thompson & West. Oakland, CAL 1878’. Sheet size: 13 ¾”x17 ½”. Thomas H. Thompson, formerly Captain Thomas, began his career preparing maps and atlases of Illinois and Iowa counties. At various times of his life he was in partnership with several different men, two of them, Louis Everts and Alfred Andreas, were old acquaintances from his army days. In 1870 Thompson and Everts began publishing atlases, releasing in that year what they called “combination atlas maps.” In the 1870 atlases, lithographic illustrations were placed at the rear of the volumes. After 1870 the illustrations were interleaved with township maps throughout the atlases. The atlases were sold by subscription by traveling salesmen. Thompson and Everts dissolved their partnership in the early 70s and in 1875 Thompson migrated to California. There he published atlases of Sonoma County (1877), Fresno County (1891), and Tulare County (1892). In partnership with West, he issued atlases of Santa Clara County (1875), Alameda County (1878) and Solano County (1878). All are illustrated with lithographic views and sketches similar to those in the atlases of mid-western counties with a splendid array of lithographed plates showing the farms, houses, and other features of the settlements of Alameda County. ***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this work of art.***

        Is HE POPENJOY? A Novel.

      Chapman & Hall,, London: 1878 - Another Trollope 'pot-boiler', which "hinges on an inheritance plot". Yada, yada, yada, surprize (!) ". all comes well." Perhaps of most interest to today's reader is "Trollope's blistering prejudiced satire on the emergent women's movement and their absurb leaders, the German Baroness Banmann and the American Doctor Olivia Q. Fleabody." [Sutherland, Victorian Fiction].When Sadleir first published his Trollope bibliography in 1928, Popenjoy was not considered by him to be a truly 'scarce' book, except in Fine condition, for he noted that most of the intial print run went to libraries. So we feel confident, here 83 years later, concluding that this set is one of the nicest offered in recent history. Spines darkened. Hinges to Vols I & III professionally, and unobtrusively, strengthened. PO book labels to front paste-down. All-in-all, a quite nice VG+ triple-decker, and quite scarce thus. Original publisher's terra-cotta silk-grained cloth with boards blocked in black, and gilt stamped title lettering to spine. Pale yellow eps. 8vo. 7-3/4" x 5". 1st edition (Sadleir 49). 3 volumes (vii, [1 (blank)], 301, [3]; vii, [1 (blank)], 297, [3]; vii, [1 (blank)], 319, [1 (blank)] pp). Advert leaf at rear of Vols I & II. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
