WITH NUMEROUS ILLUSTRATIONS - TRANSLATED BY ELEN E.FREWER - OUVRAGE EN ANGLAIS - Ouvrage daté 1878 (page de titre) - Hector Servadac est un roman d'aventures de Jules Verne, paru en 1877. Il s'agit d'un roman tout à fait fantaisiste où l'auteur extrapole à partir d'une hypothèse la rencontre de la Terre avec une comète, les conséquences à la fois les plus inattendues et les plus rigoureusement logiques de la situation créée.C'est l'un des ouvrages les plus drôles et hallucinés de Jules Verne. Les "Galliens" (Terriens temporairement expatriés sur la comète Gallia, nom donné par son inventeur, le Professeur Palmyrin Rosette) subissent une diminution de l'attraction terrestre, voient un satellite s'accrocher à leur planète ou encore les journées raccourcir, les années se modifier, le calendrier "gallien" supplanter le grégorien, etc.En raison des hypothèses astronomiques qu'il suppose connues, ce roman est d'avantage destiné à un public adulte mEme si les morceaux de bravoure des 2 héros le capitaine et son ordonnance bondissant à cause de la légèreté de leurs montures à travers les paysages de Gallia donne un ton léger au récit et abordable pour un lectorat plus jeune.

        Report of the Bombay Chamber of Commerce for the Year 1876-77. Presented to the annual general meeting held on the 30th October 1877.

      Bombay: Bombay Gazette Steam Press, 1878 - Octavo ( 206 x 127 mm). Contemporary red hard-grain morocco over bevelled boards, richly gilt spine, black label, decorative gilt roll tool border on sides, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Minor rubbing at extremities, closed-tear to one leaf (pp. 67-68) with an old but neat repair. A particularly handsome copy. First and only edition, decidedly scarce: no copies cited in either Copac or OCLC. This attractive copy has an excellent provenance: bearing, on the front cover, the gilt arms and motto ("crux mihi grata quies" - "the cross gives me welcome rest") of the Adam family. This is almost certainly from the library of Sir Frank Forbes Adam, first baronet, (1846-1926), who had a distinguished career in Indian commerce and was President of the Bombay Chamber of Commerce 1884-88. Riddick gives a potted biography of his Indian career: "[born] in Stirlingshire. 1872 went to India and entered firm of Graham & Co., Bombay. 1884-90 selected Member, Bombay Legislative Council; for a period was Member, Bombay Port Trust". A comprehensive report dating from a fascinating point in Anglo-Indian relations: Victoria became Empress of India on 1 May 1876 and the Second Anglo-Afghan War began in November 1878; it was also the period of the terrible Southern India famine of 1876-78 (covered in the current work under the heading "Financial measure to be adopted providing for the famine expenditure"). Other subjects covered include the newly opened Rajputana-Malwa railway ("Western Rajpootana Railway"), the fall in the price of silver, the Opium Bill of 1876, the trade in silk and cotton, "expediency of substituting cocoanut for colza oil for lighthouses in India", commercial fishing in the harbour of Bombay, and the shipment of grain.

        Certains G. Moreau - Degas - Chéret - Whistler - Rops - Le Monstre - Le Fer, etc

      demi-chagrin brun à nerfs, tête or, non rogné, couverture  Édition originale. Un des 10 exemplaires sur papier de Hollande, premier papier de tête avant 15 Japon. Superbe envoi a. s. : A Alexis Orsat, ces quelques nausées sur le siècle, de son vieil ami JK Huysmans.   Alexis Orsat était proche de Georges Landry, de Léon Bloy qui l'appelait son tendre énergumène, mais aussi de Francois Coppée et de Joris-Karl Huysmans avec lesquels il mena sa carrière de fonctionnaire dans les Ministères, de l'Intérieur et de la Guerre. Chaque matin, à 10 heures, ils se retrouvaient à « La Petite Chaise », rue de Grenelle, pour consommer l'immuable collation qui précédait les six heures ininterrompues de copie quotidienne. Des soirs, parfois, ils trompaient de conserve leur vie de garçon dans des bouges moins austères. Landry, le sensuel, qui allait et venait entre alcôve et confessionnal, les rejoignait facilement. Côté littéraire, Orsat se contenta simplement de publier La Salade dans une revuette bruxelloise en 1878. Ce n'est pas un vain titre de gloire car l'Å“uvre inspira à Huysmans le Poème en prose des viandes cuites au four, l'un des plus beaux textes des Croquis parisiens consacrés aux infortunes des célibataires gastralgiques entre deux âges, écartelés entre la crainte du mariage et le dégoût des fallacieux rosbifs et des illusoires gigots cuits au four des restaurants. Evidemment, ce poème est dédié à Orsat... Orsat qui inspira le personnage de Folantin d'A Vau-l'eau. Bel exemplaire.

        GROUP OF NINETEEN PHOTOGRAPHS OF FLATHEAD LAKE, BIG FORK, MONTANA FROM THE COLLECTION OF LIEUT. MORRIS C. FOOTE].

      [Montana. ca. 1878]. - Nineteen sepia-toned photographs, housed in plastic sleeves and stored in a three-ring binder. Almost all 5 x 7 inches. Three photographs separated into pieces, some somewhat faded. Else good. A group of photographs of the Bigfork and Flathead Lake area of Montana, from the collection of U.S. Army officer Lieut. Morris C. Foote. Highlights include an image of Kootenai Indians near Dayton Creek, located on the west side of Flathead Lake, as well as multiple views of camp scenes in which several men are gathered together, including images of a surveying party and images of hunters armed with their rifles. The two images featuring the surveying party could very well emanate from Foote's scouting expedition in the Black Hills in 1878, while his unit was assisting in building telegraph lines in South Dakota. A view of what appears to be a train accident, a ship in harbor, and landscape photographs are also included. Images from this area of the West during this period are rare.

        HOW THE "MASTIFFS" WENT TO ICELAND

      1878. With Illustrations by Mrs. Hugh Blackburn. London: Virtue & Co., 1878. Original blue cloth decorated in gilt, beveled, all page edges gilt. First Edition. This is the tale of Trollope's round-trip voyage from Scotland to Iceland, via the Færoe Islands, aboard the yacht "Mastiff," belonging to his long-time friend John Burns (later Lord Inverclyde), the chairman of the Cunard shipping line. (The passengers on board the "Mastiff" called themselves "the mastiffs" -- hence the title.) In addition to a colored lithograph map, there are two actual 1878 photographs (silver prints) -- one of the ship anchored at Reykavik, and the other of the "mastiffs" (including Trollope) astride Icelandic horses.~In addition there are many pencil-drawing illustrations by fellow passenger Mrs. Hugh Blackburn (who, in her memoir of the voyage, described Trollope as "a rough-spoken good sort of fellow; one wondered how he came to write such good novels"). According to the text Trollope found the Icelandic countryside "curious but not beautiful," and Reykavik "a dear little town, pervaded by a flavour of fish."~This was Trollope's last so-called "travel book" -- and is his most unusual one, being of such a large format (measuring 11 3/8" x 8 7/8"). It was "never formally published" and "not issued for sale" [Sadleir]; the book was actually privately printed for Burns.~This is in near-fine condition, with the cover gilt still bright (minor wear at the ends of the spine). This is a Trollope title that we seldom see. Sadleir (Trollope) 51. Housed in a felt-lined cloth clamshell case with leather label.

        Catalogue illustré des Livres Précieux, Manuscrits et Imprimés, faisant Partie de la Bibliothèque de M. Ambroise Firmin-Didot..

      [Compiled by G. Pawlowski]. 195 plates & facsimiles (some in color & some double-page). Six vols. Large thick 4to, cont. green half-morocco & marbled boards, t.e.g., other edges uncut. Paris: 1878-79-81-82-83-84. A magnificent set in matching bindings of the rare illustrated issue, limited to 500 numbered sets and printed on special and large paper, of one of the most magnificent collections of early French books, manuscripts, and fine bindings ever assembled. This is the only issue to contain the very fine reproductions in lithography, photogravure, and chromolithography, of illuminated MSS. and bindings. The Firmin-Didot sale marked the apotheosis of "classical" French bibliophily; it was the finest collection formed, and eventually dispersed, in 19th-century France. This set, "no. 60" was reserved for F.S. Ellis, the London bookseller, most likely for his greatest client, Sir Thomas Brooke (with his bookplate in the first five volumes). It was Brooke, of course, who owned the celebrated Pillone library. This set comes from the library of A.R.A. Hobson and, I believe, his father, G.D. Hobson. Laid-in are a number of rubbings of bindings and the occasional note concerning the whereabouts of various books from the library. A really fine and handsome set. Volumes 1, 2, and 5 have been ruled in red with prices in a contemporary hand. The final volume is numbered "197.".

        Why Work Is Scarce

      1878 - GEORGE, Henry. Why Work Is Scarce, Wages Low, and Labor Restless. [San Francisco]: The California Tax Reform League, 1878. Octavo, 16-page pamphlet in printed self-wrappers, re-stitched at an early date. Housed in custom cloth clamshell box. $1600.First edition of the text of this lecture delivered by George in the Metropolitan Temple, San Francisco, on March 26, 1878.One of George's few separate publications prior to his immensely influential landmark work, Progress and Poverty, which appeared in 1879 shortly after this speech was delivered. Addressing the causes of poverty and class conflict""the central theme of Progress and Poverty""George here calls for a confiscatory tax on land in order to maintain the American traditions of cheap land and entrepreneurial freedom. Though his analysis was scorned by trained economists like Alfred Marshall, Karl Marx, and George B. Dixwell, it proved extremely popular with the American public. Reformers such as the California Tax Reform League, who sponsored this speech, propelled George to the head of the Single Tax Movement opposed to monopolism and socialism. In 1886 George narrowly lost the mayoral election of New York City (but finished far ahead of Theodore Roosevelt). Tiny stain to front wrapper, otherwise a fragile piece in exceptionally good condition. Scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
