John Wisden
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.

Degas frequently cancelled his original copper plates after printing a few proofs. This image is especially rare. The current owner received it from a German friend who escaped from a concentration camp during WWII and worked with the US forces in Germany as a translator during the Occupation. She believes he brought this print home at that time. It suffered from bad framing but has undergone excellent conservation by Karen Zukor of Oakland, California.

Alma-Tadema-- Sir Lawrence
SPRING (GREEN ON THE FIELDS / IN THE GARDENS OF THE VILLA BORGHESE )Staalgravure uit 1879 van de hand van Auguste Blanchard naar het schilderij (Opus CLXXV) van Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Met potlood gesigneerd door Blanchard en Alma-Tadema. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 33 x 13,5 cm.Dit werk komt uit een serie van voorstellingen van de vier seizoenen: The Seasons: A Roman Idyll. In het voorjaar plukken jonge vrouwen manden vol bloemen. Een meisje in een vale tuniek staat in een veld met anemonen, ze kijkt dromend naar die ene rode klaproos. De sc?ne zou zich kunnen afspelen in de tuinen van Villa Borghese of Villa Pamfili. De recensent van de Royal Academy beschreef het schilderij als volgt:?Young Roman maidens gathering flowers for the feast to celebrate the opening year. The flowers, that thickly cover the ground like our daisies and buttercups, are the star anemone, which attracts the attention of travellers to the Eternal City. The principal figure is a tall girl in a pale dress making, as far as the painter?s part of the work goes, perhaps the most lovely picture of the four.?Het schilderij waarnaar de gravure gemaakt is, hing tot 1944 in het Schlesisches Museum f?r bildende K?nste in Breslau (thans het Poolse Wroclaw), maar ging tijdens de Slacht om Breslau verloren. Daarmee wordt deze prent de dichtste benadering van Alma-Tadema?s werk.Prijs: Euro 1.250,- (Incl. lijst)?.

[2], 76 pp. Compilation of observational governmental reports on various outbreaks of the bubonic plague in the Middle East, Persia and Egypt between 1853 and 1877. As stated in the introduction, this publication was compiled to study the epidemic in detail, in the hope that such learning might benefit Great Britain in the event of an outbreak of the plague in its own territories. The information in these reports proved to be of value during the intense study of the plague in the 1890s, which led to the identification of the diseases origin in 1894. The compilation comprises three parts: the first contains extracts from reports of the medical officers of the local government board, the second is a memorandum by Mr. Netten Radcliffe and the last contains a few papers considering the medical aspects of quarantine.Binding worn at the edges and the paper spine damaged at the head and foot.

Winston, to recognize the club which had "associated themselves together for charitable purposes, under the name of "THE CAN'T-GET-AWAY CLUB," along with the 1879 amended Constitution, and By-laws. A tender copy, encapsulated. Article I of the constitution states: "The object of this Association shall be to relieve the destitute sick of Epidemic Fevers." Other articles further defined the work of the club: The members were to be resident citizens of the city of Mobile, "as defined in the City limits of the year 1878." Members of the Executive Committee were to appoint assistants in each ward to "procure hospitals for the indigent sick, to select physicians and nurses, and to make all contracts for the Club. They shall, during an epidemic, report daily to the President." Club members were forbidden from taking payment for their work. The "Can't-Get-Away Club" was founded by a group of businessmen, religious leaders, and civic-minded citizens in 1839 to address the yellow fever epidemic that was ravaging the city. These men chose to remain in Mobile rather than escape, and do what they could to help their fellow … [Click Below for Full Description]

If this is the only difference between the two impressions, it is likely to assume that those with the pagination error would have come earlier. One of Hardy's scarcest novels, it was an immediate success. Edel & Laurence A8b. Near Fine. [Attributes: First Edition]

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Boston: Houghton, Mifflin and Company. THE POETICAL WORKS & PROSE HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW ILLUSTRATED FOLIO 1879-83. Shipped with USPS Media Mail. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (February 27, 1807 - March 24, 1882) was an American poet and educator whose works include "Paul Revere's Ride", The Song of Hiawatha, and Evangeline. He was also the first American to translate Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy and was one of the Fireside Poets from New England. Much of Longfellow's work is categorized as lyric poetry, but he experimented with many forms, including hexameter and free verse. His published poetry shows great versatility, using anapestic and trochaic forms, blank verse, heroic couplets, ballads, and sonnets.Typically, he would carefully consider the subject of his poetic ideas for a long time before deciding on the right metrical form for it. Much of his work is recognized for its melodious musicality.As he says, "what a writer asks of his reader is not so much to like as to listen". As a very private man, Longfellow did not often add autobiographical elements to his poetry. Two notable exceptions are dedicated to the death of members of his family. "Resignation" was written as a response to the death of his daughter Fanny in 1848; it does not use first-person pronouns and is instead a generalized poem of mourning. The death of his second wife Frances, as biographer Charles Calhoun wrote, deeply affected Longfellow personally but "seemed not to touch his poetry, at least directly". His memorial poem to her was the sonnet "The Cross of Snow" and was not published in his l … [Click Below for Full Description]

Octavo (8 1/4" x 5 1/2") bound in brown cloth The revival of France after the Franco-Prussian War was demonstrated by a world exhibition. Paris was a city of light for the first time. A great chess tournament took place in the exhibition hall from 17 June to 31 July 1878. The participation of George Henry Mackenzie and James Mason made it the first intercontinental tournament in Europe. Eleven double rounds were played. Wilhelm Steinitz was present as reporter for The Field.The event was won by Szymon Winawer and Johannes Hermann Zukertort, who decided to share the first prize after they each won a play-off game. They drew twice, so another play-off was necessary. Zukertort won both games and gained the first prize. Mackenzie defeated Henry Edward Bird twice in the struggle for the fourth place.Winners of the prizes were: Zukertort (1000 Frans + two Sèvres vases), Winawer (500 F + one vase), Joseph Henry Blackburne (1500 F), Mackenzie (1000 F), Bird (500 F), and the ill Adolf Anderssen (200 F). Zukertort¿s vases were priced at 5800 Francs. He needed cash, and it took three days until he could sell them much below the estimated value. Other participants in the tournament in finishing order were Englisch, Rosenthal, Clerc, Gifford and Karl Pitschel. Condition: Rebound [Attributes: Hard Cover]

First edition, extremely scarce, of Cafiero's abridgment of Marx's Das Kapital, the first appearance of the work in Italian. This was one of the earliest abridgements of Das Kapital, and was much admired by Marx. Carlo Cafiero (1846-1892), an Italian socialist, met Marx and Engels in London in 1870 and was recruited to their cause. He returned to Italy, accepting their offer to become the special agent in Italy of the International's General Council, working especially in Naples where the Bakunists and Mazzinians held sway over the left. Engels tried to warn Cafiero about the dangerousness of Bakunin's ideas, but by 1872 Cafiero had fallen in with Bakunin and was joining the anarchists. Imprisoned in 1877, "Cafiero read the French translation of Capital. The book electrified him with its brilliance, and he immediately set about writing a commentary on it.

TROLLOPE, Anthony.
1879. Crossed and stamped, countersigned F. Chapman on verso. A very nice clean example. The cheque, No. Dz69733, for £250, is made payable to 'Fred. Chapman'. This is Frederic Chapman, nephew of Edward Chapman, from 1858 a partner in the publishing firm of Chapman & Hall, and from 1866 head of the firm. He was responsible for several new endeavours at the publishing house, including overseeing the launch of Dickens's weekly journal All the Year Round, and six years later that of The Fortnightly Review. The latter, though highly regarded for its literary content, struggled to be financially viable, and forced Chapman to seek revenue from external sources. In 1868 he reached an agreement with Trollope, whose son Henry was now a partner in C&H, that saw the author buy a third of the business, for an outlay of £10,000. (See R.L. Patten, Dickens and His Publishers, London 1978.) It is not clear what this particular payment of £250 is for, but it may have been the case that Trollope paid for his share in a number of regular instalments over a number of years, rather than in what would have been at the time a huge lump sum. Trollope eventually became a director of C&H when it was registered as a limited company in 1880. PLEASE NOTE: For customers within the UK and the EU, this item is subject to VAT.

Bombay: Thacker, Spink, & Co., 1879. Octavo. Original black sand-grain cloth, gilt-lettered spine, blind frames to sides, green endpapers. Spine-ends and tips lightly bumped and rubbed, endpapers browned. A very good copy. First edition in book form, scarce, with one copy listed in auction records in the last 50 years. McCrindle, of the Bengal Educational Service, translated from the Greek two of the most important sources for Arabia and the Persian Gulf in antiquity. The Periplus was written in the first century CE and describes the routes and commercial opportunities to be accessed from Rome's Egyptian ports along the coast of the Red Sea and north-east Africa. It contains much on the Arabian Peninsula, including descriptions of Himyarite and Sabaean kingdoms, and the Frankincense Kingdom of king Eleazus, probably Iliazz Yalit I, in the Hadramawt. Arrian's account describes a voyage undertaken on the orders of Alexander the Great in 325 BCE, which resulted in the Greek discovery of the Persian Gulf (Retso, The Arabs in Antiquity, p. 267). Alexander's admiral, Nearkhos (Nearchus), sailed from the Indus estuary and eventually landed at a town named as Diridotis, evidently Teredon, a city founded by Nebuchadnezzar II in what is now Kuwait. William Vincent, who produced a commentary on the text in 1797, called it "the first event of general importance to mankind in the history of navigation" (ODNB).

Etching measures 14" x 11" (including margins) and was hand-colored with watercolors; mounted on stiff board and has masking tape around edges on verso. No publication date. Very good, with light toning in margins and marginalia in ink on verso; the right edge of the board is jagged, as if cut from a frame at one point (it does not affect the etching). Carl Oscar Borg (1879-1947) was a Swedish born artist, poet and printmaker who immigrated to California in 1902 and became well-known for his views of the West. A detailed portrayal of the Lewis and Clark expedition, this etching depicts four members navigating nearby a river. ; Signed by Artist

Each card displays the back mark of Evanston photographer A. Hesler. Each card is identified in ink on the verso in a contemporary hand. Two are marked as Class of 1879, but they all seem contemporary to each other. Among the Northwestern faculty pictured are Dr. Oliver Marcy, then the acting president of the University; Professor of Greek Robert Baird, Professor of English Charles Pearson, Professor Herbert Fisk who was principal of the University's prep school, Professor of Physics Henry Carhart, Professor of Greek Literature Louis Kistler (who at one point oversaw the university library), and W.B. Leach, who appears to have graduated from the university in 1879. Additionally pictured are two women: Jane Bancroft, identified as the "Dean of Woman's College" (one of whose predecessors was Frances Willard, who took the position when the Evanston College for Ladies merged with Northwestern in 1873), and of Lodilla Ambrose, the assistant librarian and head library administrator. At the time it was the custom to name a professor as university librarian, essentially an honorary position, but in practice Ambrose administered the library. Lovely, sharp images of prominent faculty members. We found two of these images online, and while we found images of most of the others people pictured, with the exception of the two aforementioned we could not find these specific images.

A tender copy, encapsulated. Article I of the constitution states: "The object of this Association shall be to relieve the destitute sick of Epidemic Fevers." Other articles further defined the work of the club: The members were to be resident citizens of the city of Mobile, "as defined in the City limits of the year 1878." Members of the Executive Committee were to appoint assistants in each ward to "procure hospitals for the indigent sick, to select physicians and nurses, and to make all contracts for the Club. They shall, during an epidemic, report daily to the President." Club members were forbidden from taking payment for their work. The "Can't-Get-Away Club" was founded by a group of businessmen, religious leaders, and civic-minded citizens in 1839 to address the yellow fever epidemic that was ravaging the city.

1879. Signiert "Th. Kleehaas. M[ünchen]." Verso auf dem Atelieraufkleber betitelt "Originalölgemälde/"Riffler" (Nordtirol)". Kleehaas, der vorwiegend durch Portraits und Genremotive hervorgetreten ist, fängt in dieser Landschaftsstudie einen stimmungsvollen Moment dieser urwüchsigen Berglandschaft ein. Das Bild ist in lockerer Manier gemalt und bezieht im Vordergrund den Malgrund in die Darstellung mit ein. Durch seine dominante Erscheinung und gute Zugänglichkeit, war der Riffler schon seit der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts für Touristen attraktiv. - Der deutsche Maler Theodor Kleehaas wurde im Cooperschen Institut in New York im Zeichnen ausgebildet, ehe er 1879 an die Kunstakademie in München wechselte.
