        La Nouvelle Atala; ou, La Fille de l'Esprit: LÈgende Indienne par Chahta-Ima (De La Louisiane)

      Nouvelle OrlÈans: Imprimerie du Propagatetr [sic] Catholique, 1879 - Small 8vo, original printed blue wrappers, 139 pages. ? A novella in French by Adrien Emmanuel Rouquette (1813-1887) about an idealized Louisiana Indian maiden. At the conclusion is an unsigned review of the work by the young assistant editor of the New Orleans Item, Lafcadio Hearn - his first appearance in a book, preceding his first book (a translation of Gautier's Cleopatra's Nights) by three years. Rouquette was a poet and priest from New Orleans who spent much of his time living in the countryside with the Choctaw Indians (who named him "Chahta-Ima"), due in part to local disapproval of his iconoclastic and anti-slavery views. Hearn was taken with Rouquette and praises his novella in the review: "We have before us the advance pages of a romance which we do not hesitate to term the most idyllic work in the literature of Louisiana." See the DAB for Rouquette. Wrappers a little worn and creased; very good copy. BAL 7910; OCLC records four copies (BL, two in France and UC Berkeley) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Scarce expanded version of the famous sixpenny toy book. Perhaps intended as the first in a series of new versions of the famous Walter Crane Toy Books, this juvenile play contained lyrics by Routledge and music by Parker. It sold for a shilling; and apparently did not sell well, as no other title was issued in this format. Crane having cut his ties with the sixpenny series, this book was likely issued without his permission or knowledge. Crisp, bright copy.

Ownership inscription in pencil of William Maxwell Evarts, American lawyer and statesman, dated 1882 at head of title. Uncut and largely unopened, a little light foxing; a superb copy in excellent condition. Second edition. Jevons's foremost contribution to the history of economic thought. "Comparatively short and lucidly written, it sharply attacked the classical theory of value of the 'Ricardo?-Mill school', and offered in its place the challenging view that 'value depends entirely upon utility', asserting boldly that 'Economy, if it is to be a science at all must be a mathematical science' ... from it Jevons gained international recognition as an economic theorist" (ODNB). While he made no fundamental changes for the second edition, Jevons revised the book thoroughly and discussed criticisms of it in a new preface, in which he announced his discovery of Gossen.

        Yellow Perch

      Scribners, New York 1879 - Colour printed lithograph on original mount. Among the finest 19th century images of American sporting fish Samuel A. Kilbourne, a native of Bridgetown, Maine, was an accomplished painter of natural history subjects when he decided, in 1858, to specialize in painting fish. He was extremely successful and, as the plates in this work testify, very proficient in his work. The Game Fishes. was his greatest accomplishment, and has been described as having 'the most beautiful fish plates published in this country' (Bennett). A reviewer writing in The Century magazine in 1882 wrote of Kilbourne's depictions: "Mr. Kilbourne has succeeded in a difficult task. He has succeeded in uniting in his delineation the accuracy in details of form and coloring required by the naturalist, with that freedom of style, delicacy of handling, and naturalness of surroundings demanded by the artist." The images are portraits in natural habitats mounted on card and suitable for framing, and they both accurate and aesthetically appealing.

      Gotha, 9. VIII. 1879. - 1½ SS. Gr.-8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Endlich erhalte ich aus London Antwort auf meine Anfrage bezüglich der beiden Geologen, über deren Personalien nichts zu finden war, aber die Antwort ist eine sehr unbefriedigende, mein Correspondent kennt die beiden Namen ebenfalls nicht, jedenfalls sind sie nicht von Bedeutung. Gleichsam zum Ersatz schickt mir mein Correspondent eine Anzahl Briefe aus seiner eigenen Sammlung. Ich stelle dieselben Ew. Exzellenz in der Hoffnung zur Verfügung, daß der eine oder andere Brief von Werth für Ihre Sammlung sein könnte. Die Namen der Schreiber sind bekannt genug: Hepworth Dixon, Geschichtsschreiber und Dichter (siehe Brockhaus) | Richard Francis Burton, der Entdeckungsreisende (s. Brockhaus) | Arnold Ruge [.] Giuseppe Mazzini [.] Thomas Hughes [.] Max Schlesinger [.] Sir Henry James [.] Elisée Reclus [.] Francis Galton [.]". - Ernst Behm war Leiter der "Geographischen Mitteilungen" des Geographischen Instituts von Gotha, gründete 1866 gründete das "Geographische Jahrbuch" und sammelte Übersichten über die Bevölkerung der Erde, die er zusammen mit Hermann Wagner seit 1872 in dem politisch-geographisch-statistischen Quellenwerk "Die Bevölkerung der Erde" herausgab. - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf der "Mittheilungen aus Justus Perthes geographischer Anstalt".
