      London: Bickers and Son, 1, Leicester Square, 1879 - John Evelyn (1620-1706) was a pioneering writer on tree cultivation and botanical subjects, translator of Naudé's Advis pour dresser une bibliotheque (Instructions Concerning Erecting of a Library, 1661), and a man of wide-ranging correspondence. His diaries are now one of the standard sources for late seventeenth century English life.

Volume I includes a partly printed document, a warrant for 1,000 pounds for Thomas Littleton & Thomas Osborne, signed over by them (Osborne twice), in 1671. This set is extra- illustrated throughout with wonderful 18th and 19th century views and portraits, some folding and double-page (EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED) 4 volumes bound in 8 vols., 8vo.

        A Journal Of My Visit To England, Ireland and Scotland

      John Collins, St. John, NB / Collinsville 1879 - 236 pages. By no means a standard travel narrative; all events of the journey that are mentioned are directly related to theological discourse. This reads like a very long tract; the author was a Methodist preacher. Born in 1798, the author emmigrated from Ireland to New Brunswick in 1843 and settled Collinsville (now Garnett Settlement). This book was prepared after Collins "came home from my visit to my native land, Ireland, and to Scotland, my forefathers' birthplace, and to England, where many of the branches of the family are now scattered - and came back to my adopted land, Saint John, New Brunswick - a place ever near and dear to my heart - in symmetry and oneness with the land where I was twice born - human and divine." Scarce: Worldcat records only one copy [Acadia], ESTC none. Curling to corners, light soiling to a few pages but generally very good, the thin wraps have survived exceptionally well.

      London:: Chapman and Hall,, 1879.. First edition.. Hardcover. G+. Vol I: viii, 219pp, (i), (3) adverts; Vol II: viii, 222pp, (i). Half titles present. Front pastedown bears a 1945 gift inscription to the author Joyce Cary, from whose library this came. Nicely printed on good paper, but showing clear signs of use - minor soiling to many pages, some straightened dog-ear creases, and a few pencilled comments, which I have left for their possible interest. Some foxing in the latter part of Vol II. In the original binding of light blue cloth, front blocked in black, lower board in blind, and spine in gilt. Rather dulled and soiled, with brighter area on the upper board of each, presumably formerly protected by a library label, long since removed, and an area on the lower board of Vol II where there may have been a spill. Very scarce. Good firm copy.

        Beitrage zur allgemeinen Nerven- und Muskelphysiologie. 18 offprints ex-libris Henry Head

Beiträge zur allgemeinen Nerven- und Muskelphysiologie. 18 offprints from Sitz. der k. Akad. d. Wiss., bound together in 1 vol., 8vo. c. 500pp. Numerous folding charts. [Prague], 1879-85. 240 x 165 mm. Contemporary cloth, recased, original spine repaired, some original wrappers preserved. Some browning but very good. Biedermann’s ownership stamp on 1st & 4th parts. Ownership inscription of neurologist Henry Head (1861-1940), dated 1886, on verso of free endpaper and his signature on cover of last part. Ms. table of contents of the volume in Head’s hand on front free endpaper, and a full-page pencil doodle of a medieval knight on the last page of part XII also probably by him.First Edition. Neurologist Henry Head’s set of 18 facsicules of the treatise on electrophysiology written by Hering (6 parts) and his pupil Biedermann (12 parts) and published in the Sitz. der k. Akad. d. Wiss. A further five facsicules (nos. 19-23) were issued between 1886, when Head assembled this collection, and 1888.Hering, one of the foremost German physiologists of the 19th century, succeeded Purkyne at the German University of Prague, where he spent 25 years studying sensory physiology and electrical phenomena in nerve and muscle. Biedermann worked with Hering until 1888; and the above work is the record of their collaboration. Building upon this work, Biedermann published his Elektrophysiologie (G-M 644) in 1895; this was the first exhaustive work on the subject, superseding Du Bois-Reymond's Untersuchungen uber thierische Elektrizitat (1848) as the master text on electrophysiology. The English neurologist Henry Head, best known as the subject of the experiment described in his and W. H. R. Rivers's "A human experiment in nerve division" (Garrison-Morton 1302; see also G-M 1298-99 & 1304), also studied under Hering at Prague from 1884 to 1886; given the date of his ownership inscription, he may have received this collection of offprints from Biedermann as a parting gift.

        Le Coffret de Santal

      Paris, Tresse 1879 - Livre épuisé 18,8 x 12 cm, broché, couv. imprimée en noir et rouge, chemise étui, 3 ff. n. ch., II pp., 279 pp. Le Coffret de Santal est le seul recueil poétique publié du vivant de Charles Cros (1842 - 1888). La première édition de 1873 (imprimée à compte d'auteur et publiée par J. Gay et fils à Nice et A. Lemerre à Paris) était dédiée à sa maîtresse d'alors, Nina de Villard (dédicace qui disparait dans la seconde édition, Charles Cros s'étant marié entre-temps). Cette première édition passa inaperçue. La seconde édition est augmentée de 46 poèmes. Félicien Champsaur (1858-1834) appartenait à la bohème littéraire, fréquentant les cabarets montmartrois avec Charles Cros, Rimbaud et Verlaine. Fondateur de la revue Les hommes d'aujourd'hui, il a publié en 1882 un roman satirique à clefs, Dinah Samuel, dépeignant le salon de Nina de Villard, alias Charlotte de Valbaux, où apparaissent Charles Cros et Arthur Cimber (Arthur Rimbaud). De la bibliothèque Jean-Victor Pellerin (Cat. 1969, n°72). Condition : Deuxième édition, en partie originale, tirée à 1000 exemplaires sur papier vergé. Exemplaire enrichi d'un bel envoi autographe de l'auteur sur le premier feuillet blanc à Félicien Champsaur. Petits manques au dos, premier cahier lég. débroché, menus autres défauts à la couverture, néanmoins séduisant exemplaire du fait de sa provenance bien protégé dans un élégant étui chemise en demi-maroquin. 600g.
