L'auteur organisa une lecture du manuscrit dans son cabinet de travail d'Auteuil devant Zola, Tourguéniev, Charpentieret Daudet qui en rédigea un compte rendu à LaRevue de France le 15 mars 1879.

Hi, This lot is an 1879 Rebound Wisden , with the original covers bound within. This is the 16th edition and the the range of the harder to get years in Original form. This book is in Very Good Condition The boards are in Brown with gilt to the spine and also Gerald Brodribb to the front. The covers in the 1879 are of different paper (same as 78) and they always fade and the text is usually hard to read, this 1879 is of the same state but I would say it was a lot better than the average 1879. The covers are very nice and tall, there is some darkness and a mark to the front cover. The rear cover is also in very nice condition just th eusual wear and a mark. No trimming to report, these are very tall books. There is minimal foxing and nice clean white pages. Close to a 9 for the year. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Hi, This lot is an 1879 Original Paperback Wisden. It is in OK condition, a year that is hard to find in Mint condition mainly due to the odd covers used in '78 and '79 It is 100% in original form which is nice to see for such an old Wisden. The only thing to note is the spine block has been glued or looks like glue has been added to strengthen it (that or it is the glue under the original paper or tape which has come off). The covers have the usual wear and shiny, this book has wear to the "Crick" of Cricketer's to the front cover it also has an old tape mark running down the left of the front cover. The rear cvoer has the same tape line and a small loss to the bottom right. Internally this book is excellent, it has a name signed to the title page but other than that bearly a mark or spot inside. Tightly bound. 16th Edition. Rare. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Astor, Nancy ].
Nancy Witcher Astor (1879-1964) was born in Danville, Virginia, but moved to England with her husband Waldorf Astor at the age of twenty-six. In 1919, Nancy Astor became the first woman in the United Kingdom to take her seat as a Member of Parliament. The materials in the present item chronicle AstorÕs successful campaign in the general election of 1935 and offer context into the social and political climate of the United Kingdom at the time. Many of the campaign materials included here are targeted towards women, especially mothers, and portray Astor as a hero for educational reform (pp. [20-21]) and a Òchampion of the nurseryÓ (p. [16]). The materials also offer insight into the Conservative PartyÕs rhetoric against socialism, especially in regard to economic improvement since the Conservative Party regained control of the House of Commons from the Labor Party in 1931. One flyer reads: ÒThe Socialist PartyÕs policy means dumping, depression, disaster,Ó (p. [8]). Overall, this scrapbook is a fascinating perspective on the public face of Nancy Astor and contemporary attitudes toward her and her campaign. Quarto (6 inches by 7 inches). [ 180 ] pp. Newspaper clippings, posters, and other campaign promotional items laid in or pasted down on the first [90] pp., except for on a few blank pages. The remaining pages of the scrapbook are blank. Some of the items are in color and many of the newspaper clippings include photographs. Also with a separate photograph (3Ó by 4 Ó) of Nancy Astor on a dock laid in between pages 2 and 3.

8vo. Truckee, CA: Crowley & McGlashan, 1879. 8vo, 193pp. Original brown cloth stamped in blind, gilt backstrip, a very fine copy almost as new. Enclosed in a quarter red calf slipcase. § First edition. "McGlashan was born in Wisconsin and was only two years old when his family came to California, making him a contemporary in age and experience with the younger children in the Donner party. He settled in Truckee, California, in 1871 where he became an attorney, a publisher, writer and an inventor. His book was by far the most informed account of its time of the Donner Party. It was the first serious attempt to consult authoritative sources, weigh evidence, collect detached episodes into an organized whole, and extend the story of the Donner Party from a sensational incident to an important chapter in California history. Howes M102. Zamorano Eighty #53. Graff 2610. Cowan p. 406. This first edition was followed in 1880 by an edition published by A.L. Bancroft in San Francisco, in which McGlashan deleted or revised passages that disturbed Donner Party survivors." (Reese Co.)

Hi, This lot is an 1879 Original Paperback Wisden. It is in OK condition, a year that is hard to find in Mint condition mainly due to the odd covers used in '78 and '79 It is 100% in original form which is nice to see for such an old Wisden. The only thing to note is the spine block has been glued or looks like glue has been added to strengthen it (that or it is the glue under the original paper or tape which has come off). The covers have the usual wear and shiny, this book has wear to the ""Crick"" of Cricketer's to the front cover it also has an old tape mark running down the left of the front cover. The rear cvoer has the same tape line and a small loss to the bottom right. Internally this book is excellent, it has a name signed to the title page but other than that bearly a mark or spot inside. Tightly bound. 16th Edition. Rare.

Tkachev, Petr Nikitich (1844-1886)
London (actually: Geneva): Izdanie zhurnala "Nabat", 1879. Octavo (14.3 × 10.8 cm). Later black boards with gilt-tooled leather spine label, the fragile front and rear wrappers preserved; 78 pp. A near fine copy. First and only edition of this collection of anarchist revolutionary essays by Petr Nikitich Tkachev, the Russian literary critic and political activist whom Nikolai Berdiaev considered "more of a predecessor of the Bolsheviks than Marx and Engels." During the student unrest in Moscow in the late 1860s, Tkachev led a small radical faction and was repeatedly arrested. In 1871 he emigrated and began writing for the socialist journals "Vpered!" and in his own Narodnik journal "Nabat" ("Alarm"), which advocated the creation of secret revolutionary cells in Russia and sympathized with terrorist acts. Although Tkachev is typically grouped among the Narodniks, and has been largely forgotten due to his early death in a French insane asylum, he in fact is an important early progenitor of Lenin's views on the revolution. In an open letter to Friedrich Engels (1875), Tkachev described the Russian revolutionary movement in proto-Leninist terms, as a carefully prepared event organized by a small group rather than a gradual mass phenomenon. Engels wrote a reply to Tkachev in 1875, and a "postscript" of fifteen pages in 1894, both of which were published in Leipzig. Unsurprisingly, thus, the philosopher Nikolai Berdiaev compares the dispute between Tkachev and Engels to the disagreements between Lenin and Plekhanov, the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks (In The Origin of Russian Comm … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hi, This lot is an 1879 Rebound Wisden , with the original covers bound within. This is the 16th edition and the the range of the harder to get years in Original form. This book is in Very Good Condition The boards are in Brown with gilt to the spine and also Gerald Brodribb to the front. The covers in the 1879 are of different paper (same as 78) and they always fade and the text is usually hard to read, this 1879 is of the same state but I would say it was a lot better than the average 1879. The covers are very nice and tall, there is some darkness and a mark to the front cover. The rear cover is also in very nice condition just th eusual wear and a mark. No trimming to report, these are very tall books. There is minimal foxing and nice clean white pages. Close to a 9 for the year.
