        [Photographs]: The Secretary of the Interior and Chiefs of Bureaus

      1878. Original photographs by the pioneering Civil War-era photographer Mathew Brady of the Secretary of the Interior and Chiefs of Bureaus. Nine original albumen portraits of the members of the 1878 Interior Bureau and one photograph of the Bureau's headquarters building in Washington, DC. All are oval shaped, measuring about 4" x 5" with the exceptions of the portrait of the Secretary, which is 6" x 8", and that of the building, 7.25" x 5". All of the photographs are tipped-onto a large card sheet 20.5" x 27.5", glazed and framed in gilt-decorated wooden frame to 24" x 31". With hand-lettered text, possibly a unique production. The bottom of the headquarters photo is hand-lettered "Brady -- New York & Washington, D.C." Each official has Signed below his image including the Secretary of the Interior (Carl Schurz). Most of the other officials depicted, and who have signed the piece, had served as military officers in the Civil War (often as Generals). They are the Chief Clerk (George M. Lockwood), the Commissioner of Indian Affairs (Ezra A. Hayt), the Assistant Secretary (Alonzo Bell), the Commissioner of Patents (Ellis Spear), the Commissioner of the General Land Office (James A. Williamson), the Commissioner of Education (John Eaton), the Assistant Attorney General (E.M. Marble) and the Commissioner of Pensions (J.A. Bentley). Some light soiling and damp-staining to the card stock mount but the photographs appear unaffected. The Department of the Interior was created in 1849 and had "...a wide range of responsibilities entrusted to it: the construction of the national capital's water system, the colonization of freed slaves in Haiti, exploration of western wilderness, oversight of the District of Columbia jail, regulation of territorial governments, management of hospitals and universities, management of public parks, and the basic responsibilities for Indians, public lands, patents, and pensions. In one way or another all of these had to do with the internal development of the Nation or the welfare of its people." Presumably either unique or one of very few produced. .

        The Late Dr. Charles Beke?s Discoveries of Sinai In Arabia And Midian. With Portrait Geological, Botanical, And Conchological, Reports, Plans, Map, And Thirteen Wood Engravings

      Trübner & Co., London 1878 - xviii, [2], 606, [2] pp. Sm. 4to. Red pebbled cloth, boards ruled in gilt, gilt illustration on front board, edges beveled, all edges gilt, brown endpapers. Illus. with port. frontis, 13 wood engravings, two plates of geological diagrams, and one folding map. Errata slip tipped in. Narrative of the 1874 expedition of Charles Tilstone Beke (1800-1874), an English explorer and Biblical scholar, to Egypt in order to determine the real position of Mount Sinai which he thought to be a volcano. The first three chapters were written by Beke with the entire work edited by his wife. It is perhaps his most important book. "Dr. Beke treats of the traditional Mount Sinai, and its rivals within the Peninsula of Pharau; of the non-identity of the Mltzrulm of Scripture with the Egypt of profane history, its position, and that of the I*and of Midian, and of the dynasties of Manetho, and especially those of the shepherd kings, or Mitzrites. The account of the expedition Itself, and of Dr. Beke's sojourn In Egypt, is given in Dr. Beke's very characteristic letters on his last journey." Provenance: Library of the Bangor Theological Seminary (their gift bookplate) [from Library of] Roswell Dwight Hitchcock (his signature dated 1879). Hitchcock (1817-1887) was a pastor, educator, and vice president of the American Geographical Society. Blackmer 109. Blackmer Sale 1150. Hilm: Literature of Egypt and the Soudan I, p. 58. Rebacked in red cloth with original spine laid down, seminary gift bookplate on front pastedown, glue marks on rear pastedown where pocket was removed, small repair to inner edge and outer margin of map; plates bright without foxing, a very good copy.

        FLOWERS OF PASSION

      London: Provost & Co., 1878.. Sq. octavo. Original black cloth, decorated with skull, crossbones, lyre and vines in gilt on upper board, a.e.g. Rebacked at an early date, with the original backstrip laid down, with attendant reinforcement at endsheet gutters. Edges a bit worn, faint ringmark on upper board, still a good copy of a book most often seen in less than spectacular condition. Early cloth slipcase (a bit worn at tips) First edition of the author's first book (the existence of the chimerical WORLDLINESS having long eluded reliable confirmation). This copy is the variant with all edges gilt (no priority established). From the library of collector Thomas Hutchinson, with his book label. Tipped in is a very good literary autograph letter, signed, (3pp, 8vo, 5 Kings Bench Walk, Temple, 14 April, 1893) from Moore to an unidentified recipient (presumably Hutchinson), writing out three stanzas of verse from Moore's "The Strike at Arlingford" at the recipient's request, complimenting his correspondent's poetry and berating his own, including this book: "I am sorry that you possess my earliest literary sin. The ideal man of letters ought only to publish three or four books, and to spend ten years upon each. I am entirely out of sympathy with this scribbling century . . . I have long since given up writing verse; but the other day I had to write some for my play 'The Strike at Arlingford'. 'The night's as soft as a girl / And the old trees gently incline / To her...' ...I am afraid the verse I write now is no better than the verse I wrote when a boy ... But since you have the wretched volume, I shall feel obliged if you'll copy out the poem entitled 'A Ballad of a Lost Soul' and send it to me. . . ." FLOWERS OF PASSION was never reprinted and according to Hone (p. 69), following highly unfavorable reviews and on the advice of a friend, Mrs. William Rossetti, Moore withdrew the book, which had been published at his expense. Five of the poems are reprinted in PAGAN POEMS, three in revised form (see Gilcher p. 2). GILCHER A1.

Belle réalisation luxueuse de Didot, soignée dans tous ses aspects (typographie, illustration, papier.). Reliure d'éditeur signée Charles Magnier.

On le doit à Paul Jacob, qui fut un grand bibliophile, un écrivain et érudit, et le conservateur de la bibliothèque de l'Arsenal. Si toute la série est devenue un grand classique dans le domaine, c'est qu'elle marie heureusement un travail d'éditeur, d'imprimeur, de relieur, d'histoire, d'illustrateurs, de documentations, et peu de livres ont finalement réussi cet amalgame qu'on doit à Firmin-Didot, à une époque où le livre était devenu bien médiocre.

        La methode graphique dans les sciences experimentales. Inscribed copy

      Masson, Paris 1878 - Marey, Etienne-Jules (1830-1904). La méthode graphique dans les sciences expérimentales et principalement en physiologie et en médecine. xix, 673, [3, incl. errata]pp. Text illustrations. Paris: G. Masson, [1878]. 237 x 155 mm. Quarter cloth, mottled boards ca. 1878, remains of handwritten paper label on spine, light edgewear, spine a bit faded. Light to moderate foxing, but very good. Presentation copy, inscribed by Marey to Gabriel Gustav Valentin (1810-83) on the half-title: "A Professeur Valentin affection & respet E. J. Marey."First Edition. Marey pioneered the use of graphical recording in the experimental sciences, using instruments (many of his own invention) to capture and display data impossible to observe with the senses alone, and to record the progression of such data over time. He began by applying graphical recording methods to problems in physiology, using machines to investigate the mechanics of the circulatory, respiratory and muscular systems. After 1868 he turned to the study of human and animal locomotion, and in the 1880s he began using cinematography to record animal motion, making him one of the pioneers in this field. Marey's graphical recording methods, at first looked on askance by the French medical establishment, eventually led to his election to the Académie des Sciences, where he occupied the chair in the medical and surgical section once held by Claude Bernard. In the same year Marey published his La méthode graphique, "an encyclopedic summary of all of his research and results so far. It began, as did all Marey's publications, with a scrupulous history in which he enumerated his predecessors and described what he had borrowed from each. He then defined the purposes of his inscribing machines and showed how they were able to describe both movement and force as well as to store the information as material for comparison and research. He described the circulatory and locomotion phenomena he had studied, but this time he focused on methods of recording them. He reviewed the function of the mechanical models he had created, and finally he explained the locomotion of humans, horses, birds and insects and showed the devices for registering their movements. 'There is nothing," wrote Marey, "that can escape the methods of analysis at our disposal'" (Braun, p. 40).An uninscribed copy of Marey's Méthode graphique (together with its 1885 supplement) was sold at the Tufte sale (Christie's Dec. 2, 2010) for $15,000. We are offering the copy that Marey presented to Gabriel Gustav Valentin, professor of physiology at the University of Bern and co-author, with J. E. Purkyne, of a classic paper on ciliary epithelial motion (see Garrison-Morton 602). Dictionary of Scientific Biography. Braun, Picturing Time: The Work of Etienne-Jules Marey, pp. 39-40.

Indeed, the problem has bulked so large in the past that the events to which it gave rise stand out clearly in the pages of general history. There have been four major chief movements in the history of Christianity in China. There was the Nestorian, beginning in the seventh century; the Franciscan, which was a relatively brief episode chiefly of the early fourteenth century; the basic Roman Catholic movement beginning with the Jesuits in the sixteenth century; and the Protestant movement, beginning in the early nineteenth century and covering the span of this book. THIS BOOK IS A GREAT HISTORICAL RECORD OF THE PROTESTANT PERIOD IN A MAJOR AREA OF CHINA!!!! COMPETITIVE PRICING!

        RÉLIURE ANCIENNE ET MODÈRNE, RÉCUEIL DE 116 PLANCHES

      Paris: Paul Daffis, 1878. contemporary half calf, five raised bands, top edge gilt, with original front wrapper bound-in at end. Bookbinding. small 4to. contemporary half calf, five raised bands, top edge gilt, with original front wrapper bound-in at end. viii, 8 pages followed by 116 full-page plates. First edition. (Mejer no.27; Brenni no.282). A collection of 116 photo engravings of the finest examples of French bookbinding produced from the 16th to 19th centuries. Compiled by one of France's most renowned bibliophiles, the reproductions portray works executed with lavish attention to detail by master bookbinders such as Padeloup, Clovis and Nicolas Eve, le Gascon, and Nicolas Derome. In addition, since these works of art belonged to notables such as Jean Grolier, François Ièr, Diane de Poitiers, Louis XIII, Mazarin, and Cosimo de Medicis, to name a few, their value rendered them inaccessible to the scrutiny of most bibliophiles. Therefore, through the precisely reproduced plates in this album, Brunet intended to give bibliophiles the opportunity to acquire a deeper knowledge of the details and artistry of the original bindings and also to appreciate the progress of the art through the centuries. In red, brown, or black-and-white, the plates are from the Bibliophile Français (1808 - 1873). Keyed to the plates is a descriptive table, of which thirty-one more important and distinctive works receive enhanced descriptions. Foreword, introduction and table handsomely printed with wide margins. Booklabel of Miss Ann Ingersoll Meigs who has signed and dated (December 1883) this copy on the half-title. Covers show wear around edges and tips with part of leather chipped away at the bottom of the spine. Has been skillfully rebacked with original leather spine laid down on newer matching leather. Free endpaper partially detached. Ownership inscription in pencil.

The British polar expedition of 1875-76, commanded by George Strong Nares, was to attempt to reach the North Pole via Smith Sound and Robeson Channel, and to explore the northern parts of Ellesmere Island and northwest Greenland. However, an outbreak of scurvy seriously eroded the health of the members of the sledging parties and they were forced to abandon the enterprise after one year. The two ships sailed through Davis Strait, Baffin Bay, Smith Sound, Kane Basin, Robeson and Kennedy Channels to Lincoln Sea, the Discovery wintering at Discovery Harbour in Lady Franklin Bay, and the Alert in Lincoln Bay, northern Ellesmere Island. On the sledging expeditions, Capt. A.H.Markham reached a new record north of 83?20'26", while Lt. Pelham Aldrich rounded Ellesmere Island and examined its northwest tip as far as Cape Albert Ernest. Appended are extensive notes on natural history, edited by H.W.Feilden, naturalist on the expedition. Arctic Bib. 12026A (incorrectly calling for 7 mounted photos).
