      Heal, Josiah W., Lynn [ Massachusetts ] 1879 - First Edition. Not paginated. Oblong. 12 x 9 inches. 49 leaves affixed to binding structure with linen hinges. New leather spine and corners over original cloth boards gilt. Front pastedown is additional advertising, rear pastedown is blank. About half the leaves have significant dampstaining (the lightest at the foreedges and only marginal, the worst extending about 1/3 into the text or photograph portion of the page) Image quality varies, the worst being the photograph of Lydia Pinkham's building which is badly spotted. One leaf is printed on a different paper stock, in partial color and with slightly smaller page dimensions. Boards. There are at least two works with this title. 1) [ as here ] with 24 albumen illustrations and many additional pages of business advertisements. 2) A photograph album with 23 glazed collotype images with rounded corners, captions, and surrounded by decorative borders but with no advertisements. Both contain images by photographer C.E. Cook. Interestingly some content appears to be different.The present example contains forty nine leaves (98 pages) plus an additional page of advertising affixed to the front pastedown. Of these, 24 pages are albumen photographs with captions (but no decorative borders and square corners). There are 4 pages of information about Lynn and it's statistics/goverance. The balance (aside from the photographs) are advertisements for local firms - some full page, some as small as a business card. Some advertisements are two color, with a few pages full color productions.OCLC/Worldcat notes eight examples with [71] pages, [24] pages of plates (or 95 pages total). This example, with 99 pages total, would be the "most complete" version at least according to Worldcat descriptions. One page is an avertisement with a photograph of a building owned by the publisher Josiah W. Heal, noting that he is heading west, and desires to sell the building at a good price, not something a publisher would likely waste money on printing for very long. A substantial and impressive undertaking for such a localized area.Scarce in the marketplace. Charles Wood 2003 catalog for 3,500 noting "These 'booster books' were never common; this is the first one I have seen on the market in at least a decade." In addition to his example, Swann's in 2014 for 4,750 (noting 34 images). Both were in better condition than the example offered here. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        British Fresh-Water Fishes.

      1879 1879 - 2 vols. London: Mackenzie [1879]. With textual illustrations and 41 colourplates depicting each species drawn from nature by A.F. Lydon together with textual engravings, all with tissue guards. Folio. XXVI + 204 pp. Well-preserved copy with wide margin bound in contemporary halfleather with goldprint on the weakly faded spines. * One of the most beautiful late Victorian books on British fishes. The excellent plates are by Frank Lydon who also drew the plates for Couch's work on fishes. The book treats the natural history of various species of fishes, amongst which are many salmons, that are known to occur in the rivers, lakes, and ponds of the British Isles. "The high sales figures achieved by many popular Victorian natural history books were largely proportional to the quantity and quality of the pictures in them. Victorians, too, liked pretty pictures. without A.F. Lydon's colour-printed plates, few would have been willing to discover what natural curiosities the Rev. W. Houghton and his offspring encountered on their walks in the country and by the seaside" [Dance p. 206].

Il fut promu Général de Brigade lors de la guerre de 1870, et terminera Inspecteur Général de Cavalerie. L'ensemble est composé de 15 volumes de Discours et d'un seizime volume de tables, permettant une consultation aisée.

        From Kulja, across the Tian Shan to Lob-Nor.

      Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington. Nikolai Mikhailovich Przheval'skii (1839-88) was a Russian geographer and explorer. His expeditions => extensively contributed to Europe's knowledge of Central Asia and advanced the study of the region's geography, fauna, and flora, earning him the Founder's Gold Medal from the Royal Geographical Society in 1879, as well as a breed of horse named in his honor. In his second expedition to Central Asia (1876-77), documented here, Przheval'skii traveled through Kulja, today called Yining, to Lop Nur, although the ultimate goal of reaching Lhasa was not achieved due to an illness and worsening relations with China. For this => first English edition, English explorer Edward Delmar Morgan translated the account of the trek and Thomas Douglas Forsyth provided an introduction. The volume includes => two color folding maps; the larger shows Przheval'skii's journey through South Asia in 1877 and the smaller one depicts the "comparison between Chinese and Prejevalsky's geography from tracings by Baron Richthofen." Evidence of Readership: On the title-page, beside the author's name, "London 5/11/88 -- Telegram death of Col. Prejevalsky while on expedition to Thibet." Occasionally, an inked or penciled mark or number in a margin. Provenance: On verso of title-page, signature of M. Holzmann and (in a different hand) "C.J.M. 5944." Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

Ileen wone the Race By 11 minuets 14 sec wind East By south to south."</I> <br /><br />From "The New York Times,' August 31, 1890: "Narragansett Pier, Aug. 30. - A most remarkable exodus began immediately after the close of the exciting tennis matches…Paul Stevenson's yacht Thetis and Fred Gebhart's cutter Ileen had an exciting race to Block Island and return Saturday, the Ileen, sailed by Capt. Thomas Lynch, winning by 13 minutes." The race was part of the festivities held to coincide with the U.S. National Singles Championship for Men held at the Newport Casino, Newport, Rhode Island, since August 1881. All but the men's singles champion had been decided by the end of August 1890. On September 3, 1890, Oliver S. Campbell of Brooklyn, New York, won the 1890 Single Championship of America, defeating Henry W. Slocum, Jr., the 1888 and 1889 champion. At 19 years, six months, and nine days, Campbell was the youngest men's singles champion, a record he held for 100 years. On September 9, 1990, 100 years and 6 days later, Pete Sampras won his first U.S. Singles title at 19 years, 28 days. Campbell won again in 1891 and 1892. <br /><br />The "Ileen" then sailed to Dutch Island in Narragansett Bay, then to Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts, back to Newport and Vineyard Haven on September 4, 1890. Returning to 26th Street in New York on September 10th, the "Ileen" sailed to "Clifton Staten Island," West Point, Tarrytown, and New York City where she docked at 35th Street from September 16th to October 2nd. The last entry of 1890 was October 6th at City Island. The next page begins City Island, July 10, 1891, with entries from New York until September 25th when the "Ileen" headed back to Newport (September 26th to October 1st). On the next page, in another hand, is a "List of vesels Built in Naran River By John sandars." Listed are five schooners and eleven sloops. Very good condition.<br /><br />The 1879 log book "Express" is mostly a voyage from Stonington to Cape Horn and back. Several loose documents are folded inside the cloth, hand stitched cover, including bills of lading, letters, customs documents, etc. A few log entries with uncorrected spelling: "30 June 1879 / First part brisk winds from NE and fine weather Stearing SSW with all sail set at 7PM while some of the men ware fooling Jo King [?] got over board let the schooner come to the wind and lowered the Boat but could not save him it being quite rough."

      London and Belfast: William Mullan and Son,, 1879. Arabia Egypt India. A Narrative of Travel. Octavo (211 x 135 mm). Contemporary tan half calf, raised bands to spine forming compartments gilt-tooled with arabesques, green morocco label, comb-marbled sides, edges and endpapers. Colour map frontispiece with tissue guard, additional folding colour map, 12 wood-engraved plates. Joints restored, extremities sympathetically refurbished, mild superficial craquelure to spine, small spot to prelims, short nick to top edge of initial blank, contents otherwise clean. A very good copy. First edition, presentation copy of this "notable travel account" (ODNB), inscribed in a secretarial hand to "George Augustus Sala, with Isabel Burton's kindest comple[men]ts - 21 Jun 1879" to the half-title, with Sala's ownership inscription directly below. Sala (1828-1895) was one of the leading literary figures in England during the second half of the 19th century, and a long-time friend of Isabel's husband Richard, whom he knew through membership of various semi-official clubs, including the Savage Club, which met at a Fleet Street hotel, and the Cannibal Club, "a coterie of intelligent bon viveurs which [also] included Richard Monckton Milnes, Algernon Swinburne and others" (Black, George Augustus Sala and the Nineteenth-Century Periodical Press, p. 9). In December 1875 Richard Burton was granted six months' leave from his post as consul at Trieste, and he and Isabel decided to travel to India, where he had begun his adventuring career as a soldier in the Bombay infantry. From Trieste they sailed by way of Port Said and Jeddah to Bombay, proceeding thence to Hyderabad before making a brief tour of Sind and returning to England via Goa and Suez. In addition to an itinerary, chapters cover the Jeddah massacre of 1858, the history of Hyderabad, Francis Xavier and the Goa Inquisition, and more. Richard also described the journey in his own work Sindh Revisited (1877), which lacked illustrations and focused more on military matters.
