        Pioneering in South Brazil. Three Years of Forest and Prairie lIfe in the Province of Parana

      London: John Murray, 1878. Two volumes, pp. xiii, 378; c, 328 + 24 pp publisher's ads. Illustrated with 2 frontispieces (1 folding), 18 text drawings, and a large colored folding map of the Valleys of Tibagt and Ivahy in the Province of Parana in South Brazil. A lovely, fine set in original brown cloth with pictorial gilt. Borba de Moraes I, 92: "Captain Palm, a Swedish officer and protege of his King, succeeded in interesting the Brazilian government and the Baron of Maua in a railroad plan which would cross South America at about Parana from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Sixteen engineers, divided into four groups, carried out the preliminary surveys from 1870 to 1872. Bigg-Wither, as chief of one of the groups of engineers, explored the Ivai Valley. The book he left, written in a fluid and picturesque style, is of great interest and full of excellent observations about the region of colonies and the 'sertao' of Parana. It is certainly one of the best travel books concerning that part of Brazil.

        THROUGH THE DARK CONTINENT. Or the sources of the Nile around the great lakes of Equatorial Africa and down the Livingstone River to the Atlantic Ocean. With ten maps and one hundred and fifty woodcuts

      Harper & Brothers, Publishers. New York. 1878. FIRST U.S. EDITION. 2 volumes. 8vo. (9 x 6.3 inches). Publisher's delux leather bindings of brown half morocco with marbled paper to the boards. Spines with raised bands,compartments lettered, ruled and decorated in gilt. Marbled edges and endpapers. Portrait frontispiece in each volume and 32 plates, numerous wood-engravings throughout the text, many full-page. The full page plates each have a tissue guard. 10 colour printed maps, one double-page and one folding including the 2 large folding coloured maps in end-pockets to each volume. One of the maps has a few splits to some of the fold hinges but is complete. Bindings are rubbed, just a little, at the extremities of the spines and more so on the outer corners of the boards, but still present very well on the shelf with the gilt still bright and sharp. Overall a very good set. ------- First U S Edition in the publisher's de luxe leather binding. A fascinating account of Stanley's controversial Trans-African Expedition of 1874-7. Stanley finally dispelled Livingstone's notion that the "Lualaba was the source of the Nile and vindicated Speke's claim that the lake seen on his expedition with Burton was indeed one of the sources." (Howgego). However, acclaim for his success in "solving the remaining mysteries of African geography" (ODNB) was tempered by criticism that his manner of of carrying through the expedition amounted to "exploration by warfare.".

        Map of Western Asia.

      London: Edward Stanford,, 1878. Lithographic map coloured in outline, dissected into 18 panels and mounted on linen, opening to 462 x 640 mm, folding into the original pink cloth case with printed yellow paper label to front board as issued, yellow-surface paper advertisement leaves to front board and upper outer panel versos; scale of 1 inch : 100 miles (approx. 1 : 6,336,000). Case slightly sunned and rubbed, the map in excellent condition, clean, bright and fresh. First edition of this detailed map of the Middle East, centred on Iran and including the Persian Gulf and the holy cities of Arabia, and extending to the Caucasus and Central Asia in the north, Anatolia, the Levant and the Red Sea in the west, and Sindh and Afghanistan in the west; rare, with three copies only traced in libraries (British Library, National Library of Scotland, and the University of British Columbia); OCLC traces two copies of a second edition, published in 1885 (Library of Congress and Berkeley). This map contains a number of notable features. The Hajj route to Baghdad is clearly labelled, as are main land routes across the entire region, as well as the Persian Gulf Submarine Telegraph Cable, which was laid in 1864 to connect Karachi and Basra; the extension to Europe was completed in 1865, though the cable was in fact on its way to obsolescence at the time of publication, following the laying of another cable from Aden to Bombay in 1870. The depiction of a dense network of routes criss-crossing northern Arabia reflects the substantial improvements in British knowledge of the region throughout the 19th century. "Because Europeans did not travel them, the old incense trails and the well-worn pilgrimage routes to the Holy Cities?frequently one and the same ?were often neglected [in pre-19th century maps of Arabia]. It was not until the early 19th century that European acquaintance with the Arabian interior became sufficient to allow cartographers to plot these longstanding routes with confidence ? By the mid-19th century, there was an upsurge in the accuracy of map data, as the fruits of scientific enquiry helped provide the missing pieces of the global jigsaw puzzle. In Arabia, much of this progress hinged on the discoveries of other explorers such as Johann Burckhardt, William Palgrave, Richard Burton and Charles Doughty" (Parry, "Mapping Arabia", in Aramco World, online). The findings of these adventures were supplemented increasingly by official surveys, encouraged partly by rivalry between the British, Russian and Ottoman empires, and probably also by the role of the yearly pilgrimage in a series of recent cholera epidemics, which had spread to Europe and North America, and which worsened from 1866, when steam ships took pilgrims from Egypt and India for the first time, this much quicker form of transport accelerating the global spread of disease.

        Camp Life and Sport in South Africa: Experiences of Kaffir Warfare with the Cape Mounted Rifles

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1878. 1st. Original cloth. 8vo. xiii, 258 pp. 4 color lithographs (including frontispiece with tissue guard). Publisher's green cloth, black ruling and gilt illustration & lettering. A very good copy (light rubbing to extremities & boards; owner name; shelfwear); a nice copy. An informative and lively account of a soldier's experiences in the Eighth (1850-1853) and greatest of the wars between White and Black on the Cape eastern frontier. The author, a Cape Mounted Rifleman, served throughout the hostilities, and writes revealingly of the joys, the hardships and the dangers of campaigning in an ever-troubled border region and of the day-to-day life of a colonial officer. The military reminiscences are enhanced, as H. C. Hummel says in his admirable Foreword, 'by the clarity, detail and humour of Lucas's observations as raconteur, hunter, angler and, above all, naturalist . . . Those who know the Eastern Cape and its historic hinterland will recognise familiar landmarks. (Books of Zimbabwe).

Der Rückweg führt über Heidebrünnel (Vresová Studanka), wo auch die Kapelle betreten wird, über den Keilberg mit Blick in die Schneegräben, über die Schwarzkoppelbaude dann durch Oberthomasdorf und Hinterthomasdorf zurück nach Thomasdorf. -- Das Manuskript wurde von Johann Schwarzer geschrieben, die Zeichnugnen sind ebenfalls von ihm. Johann Schwarzer wurde 1851 als Sohn eines Maurers in Javornik geboren. Er studierte Maschinenbau und machte Ausbildungen in Hirschberg (Doksy), Magdeburg, Leipzig und Bernburg and er Saale. Er war auf die Errichtung von Zuckerfabriken spezialisiert. In dieser Tätigkeit richtete er 1901 eine Anlage in Kuba ein. Auf ausgedehnten Auftragsreisen lernte er einen beträchtlichen Teil der Welt kennen (Kuba 1878, 1890, 1894, 1901, Brasilien 1885, Nordamerika 1892/93, Mexiko 1893/94, 1901, Java 1895, Australien 1897/98, Neuseeland 1898, Peru 1901, Guatemala 1901). Als aufmerksamer Beobachter hielt Johann Schwarzer in zahlreichen Briefen seine Erlebnisse fest und sammelte exotische Objekte und Tiere, die er den Schulen seiner Heimatstadt zur Verfügung stellte. Er starb am 10. August 1901 in Zopotlan el grande/Ciudad Guzmán (Mexiko). -- Vorliegendes Manuskript schrieb er während seiner Ausbildung in Magdeburg. Die Erzählweise ist humorvoll, auch sind die Zeichnungen eher Karikaturen. Das sehr schöne aquarellierte Titelblatt zeigt eine Ansicht von Javornik, die Glaserberghütte sowie zwei Szenen der Wanderung. In den Aussenecken sind die vier Portraits der vier Männer, welche die Wanderung unternahmen. 3 davon sind gemalt, eines ist eine montierte Original-Fotografie. Bei welchem der Portraits es sich um Johann Schwarzer handelt, konnten wir nicht herausfinden, vermutlich ist er aber auf dem Foto dargestellt. -- Mehrere der Zeichnugnen sind von Johann Schwarzer signiert, manchmal auch datiert, ebenso das aquarellierte Titelblatt. -- -- Vermutlich handelt es sich bei Johann Schwarzer (geb. 1880 in Jauernig -1914), dem österreichischem Fotograf und Filmregisseur erotischer Kurzfilme, um den Sohn des Verfassers unseres Manuskriptes. -- Der Einband ist etwas berieben, teils etwas fleckig. Der Buchblock ist zu Beginn angebrochen. -- Ein aussergewöhnliches Manuskript eines aussergewöhnliches Mannes aus Javornik in Mährisch-Schlesien. Versand D: 5,00 EUR

        Zwei Gefangene. Novelle. Mit dem Bildnis des Verfassers.

      Reclam Jun.,, Leipzig, 1878 - Leipzig, Reclam Jun., o. J. [1878]. 12°. 92 + 4 n.n. + 14 + 2 S. OLd. EA. WG II 64. Mit dem Porträt und der faksimilierten Unterschrift. - [Universal-Bibliothek, Nr. 1000]. - Ebd. etw. berieben, leicht stockfleckig, Gbrsp. - In dem selten Ledereinband, mit Goldkopfschnitt. - Heyse, (1830 - 1914), studierte 1847-51 in Berlin und Bonn klassische Philologie, Romanistik und Kunstgeschichte und wurde 1852 promoviert. Er schloß u.a. Bekanntschaft mit Jacob Burckhardt, Wolfgang Menzel, Joseph von Eichendorff und Theodor Fontane. Nach einer Studienreise durch Italien (1852/53) als Stipendiat des preuß. Kultusministeriums ließ sich Heyse, auf Vermittlung Emanuel Geibels von König Maximilian II. gefördert, 1854 in München nieder. Das ihm dort zugestandene Vorlesungsrecht an der Univ. nahm er allerdings nicht wahr. Als Haupt des Münchner Dichterkreises um den König und Gründer der literarischen Gesellschaft "Krokodil" war er Mittelpunkt des geistigen Lebens der Stadt. Heyses erste von über 150 Novellen erschien 1855 unter dem Titel L’Arrabiata (in: Novellen). In Anspielung auf Boccaccios Novelle Der Falke, an der Heyse seine Auffassung der Gattung exemplifizierte, forderte er, daß jede Novelle in einem "Falken", einem unerwarteten Wendepunkt zu gipfeln habe. Er schrieb ferner über zwanzig Theaterstücke und einige Versepen und Romane (u.a. Kinder der Welt, 3 Bde., 1873). Seine Prosa stieß schon zu Lebzeiten neben Anerkennung -- Gottfried Keller sah in ihm den einzigen ebenbürtigen Zeitgenossen -- auch auf scharfen Widerspruch der Naturalisten, aber auch Thomas Manns. Verdienstvoll sind seine Übersetzungen aus dem Italienischen und Spanischen. Neben zahlreichen hohen Ehrungen erhielt Heyse als erster deutscher Schriftsteller 1910 den Literaturnobelpreis.

        Shores of the Polar Sea. A Narrative of the Arctic Expedition of 1875-6.

      London: Marcus Ward, 1878. Large Folio (14 x 19.5 in), 83 pages of text on thick, high-quality paper, complete with all 16 chromolithographic colour plates, 1 map and 28 wood engravings in text. Nicely illustrated original full cloth, all edges gilt. Very clean inside, corners bumped, spotting and scuffing to binding (see pictures), otherwise a very good, impressive copy of a rare book on Polar exploration! Edward L. Moss accompanied the North Polar expedition led by Nares, which was sent out for the attainment of the North Pole in 1875. The ships, H.M.S.S. Alert, Discovery and Valorous, left England on 29 May 1875, crossed the Atlantic to Davis Straits and entered the Arctic regions. The latter vessel accompanied the expedition as far as Disco, for the purpose of helping it so far northwards with its heavy stock of three years' provisions and fuel. The expedition provided a wealth of information on Greenland's north-west coast. On extensive sledge journeys, the record northern latitude of 83 20'26'' N was reached. What makes this book particularly interesting are the large and beautiful chromolithographs which show Godhavn Harbour, a musk ox hunt, the Alert in winter quarters, sledging parties, etc.. First Edition. Very Good.

      A complete run in 43 total issues of two short-lived French political journals published during the Third Republic, under the editorial direction of H. Bregeot and Alfred Le Petit, respectively, each issue 4 pp., covering topics of politics and government with wit and humor including poetry and short prose pieces, each issue with a colorful political or satirical illustration to the front cover. Lg. 8vo. Boards, original wrpps. bound in. Paris 1878-1879. A radical newspaper called Le Père Duchêne first appeared during the French Revolution, edited by Jacques Hébert. 385 issues were published in total, from September 1790 until eleven days before his death by guillotine in March 1794. The title was reused many times afterwards, most often during revolutionary periods including the July Revolution of 1830, the Revolution of 1848, and the Paris Commune of 1871. Le Père Duchêne was the name of a fictional character representing a man of the people who denounced abuses and injustices. "Sans-culottes" referred to the lower classes in France who wore pantalons, or trousers, instead of the fashionable silk breeches of the upper class, and who were often driven by ideals of social and economic equality and popular democracy. As of August 2016, WorldCat locates three holdings in North America of Le Père Duchêne and four of Sans-Culotte.

        PRE-REVOLUTIONARY ARCHIVE ON CROQUET]

      - 1. [Croquet. Notebook]. [1870s]. 186 pp. 21x17 cm. Blue cloth with gilt lettering ('Croquet') on the front cover. Handwritten in black and colored pencils on the graph paper. Author's occasional crossings. The notebook consists of paragraphs describing different aspects of croquet: general rules, manual how to set up hoops and play croquet, elements and phases of the game, terms (for example, 'croquet stroke' is called just 'croquet'), points, end of the game, variations, etc. The most interesting part is description of the strikes from scientific point of view. Possible situations are considered as mathematical or geometrical exercises. For example, author derived formulas for oblique croquet strokes. Moreover, on p. 128 author stated that he experimented based on his calculations, and on p. 129 he drew a chart comparing theoretical figures with those he gathered experimentally. Almost every paragraph is provided with schemes depicting disposition of hoops, trajectories of balls movements and variations of their dispositions, etc. Several tables are very thoroughly put together, for example, on p. 126 presented a table of changing the magnitude and direction of the velocity depending on direction of strikes for balls of different resiliency. On p. 161 can be found a graph based on that table to make author's calculations visual. Part of the text and drawings in the notebook are dedicated to billiard (Russian pyramid) which author called 'table croquet'. On p. 70 author made a scheme of a tool for painting balls (and dated it June 12th 1878). 2. [Croquet Pyramid Game. Notebook]. 33 pp. 14x9 cm. Black leather covers. Handwritten in ink on the graph paper with colored drawings. This is the manual to, as written on the first page, croquet pyramid game - an imitation of billiard game. The main goal is to hit as many balls through hoops as possible. Notebook consists of rules, color drawings explaining how to place hoops and balls, how to build pyramids out of 15, 9, 8, 7, 10 et al. balls. 3. [Pencil drawing of the croquet court]. 21x28,5 cm. Paper, pencil. 4. [Manual to playing croquet]. [1868]. [108 pp., 8 ill.] 35x24 cm; 21x13,5 cm. Handwritten pages. Lined paper, ink. Colored drawings. The manual is translated from English «Croquet Tactics». It was originally written by Walter Jones-Whitmore (London, 1868). It was never officially translated and published in Russia. In 1860s croquet came to Russia and instantly it became very popular. This amateur translation is an evidence to that as there was no other source of information how to play it right. 5. [Folder of the rules to playing croquet]. [138 pp.] 35x24 cm. Handwritten pages. Graph paper, pencil, pen. Colored drawings. It starts with special instructions for players, for example, «You shouldn't be apathetic when you hit even if it seems easy. Lack of the attention to easy hits can cause a loss of the game», or «Don't loose your temper, otherwise you probably will loose». Instructions are followed by terminology (not finished) and schemes depicting various game situations. All text is followed with English words and their translations on the right side of pages. Among the usual vocabulary specialcroquet terms can be found. This is possibly all or the most part of amateur translation from English of «The Complete Croquet Player» by James Dunbar Heath (1873). All items in a very good condition. At first croquet in Russia was an entertainment only for aristocrates and became indispensable for posh lifestyle, especially because noble ladies were able to play it. They started to improve homesteads with croquet fields. Elite educational institutions included the sport in their programmes. Russian newspapers were proclaiming there was no place where swell society gathered without croquet courts. A lot of Russian celebrities played croquet: Anna Pavlova, Fyodor Chaliapin, Mendeleev, Mayakovsky, Lenin, Chekhov, Leo Tolstoy and many others.

In this novel James has reversed his common theme of Americans visiting Europe: the lighthearted artist Felix Young, and his sister Eugenia who needs a wealthy husband to replace the German nobleman to whom she is married, arrive in Boston society...~There were three printings, of 250 copies each, in September, October and November 1878. According to Blanck, the third printing is "noted only as a two-volumes-in-one production" -- yet here is a set of that third printing consisting of two separate volumes in the publisher's standard cloth binding. The text has all of the "third (?) printing" points enumerated by Blanck -- such as "peculiar influence!" at I/137/last line, and "his" at II/46/last line.~This set is in very good condition (volumes a bit aslant and spines slightly darkened as usual, minor wear at the extremities, one endpaper cracked with light damage due to bookplate removal).
