        British Fresh-Water Fishes

      - London: William Mackenzie, n.d., but 1879. First edition, two volumes (pp. xxvi, 92; 93- 204). Large folio (37 cm) in reddish-brown crushed morocco, fine decorative gilt figures, titles, and decorations; a.e.g. Illustrated with forty-one fine full-page chromolithograph portraits of each species by Lydon who also produced the series of equally fine steel engravings of piscatorial scenery to serve as chapter heads, e.g., ‘On the Thames, near Roebuck Inn’. Each species is described systematically in the general form: nomenclature, citations from the literature, fish’s appearance, habits, culinary value, etc. The twenty-six page introduction, dated 1879, is a generalized description in scientific terms of fishes’ physiology, behaviour, etc. The Rev. Houghton, MA, FLS, contributed the text of this quite lovely work, a text which seems lightly edited in places as witness several full folio pages with but a line or two of text. In fact, the real glory is Lydon’s delicate and subtle engravings which may have led to text and plates parting company from time to time. Our copy is blind-stamped ‘Ardmamona, Loch Esk, Co. Donegal’ and is likely from the library of Mr. Thomas Brooke, of the Castle, Lough Esk, who furnished Houghton specimens of Cole’s Charr (Salmo colii), a debt acknowledged in Houghton’s preface. Bottom edges worn, otherwise a clean, bright copy of a most attractive work on fresh-water fishes. Nearly Fine. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Atlas. Paris, Monrocq & Geisendörfer for Auguste Logerot, ca. 1879.

      1879. 8 jigsaw puzzles, 302 x 228 mm each: lithographs in original hand colour, laid down to wood panels. Relief shown by hachures. Stored in decorative box (320 x 250 x 55 mm). Charming hand-coloured geographical puzzle set, manufactured by Logerot in Paris, rarely encountered complete and with eight maps: World, North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania, and France. Puzzles of this type were first produced in London by John Spilsbury in the 1760s, but the style passed to the continent and became a popular educational tool in France and Germany in the early to mid 19th century. Logerot issued his puzzles from the 1850s onwards; the European borders of this set point to a production date between 1878 and 1880. The puzzle maps are stored in the box fully assembled, each resting on a paper mat with cloth tabs for easy retrieval. - In excellent condition. Cf. OCLC 56131950. Tooley III, p. 148 ("99 jugsaw puzzles, c. 1850").

        The Trees and Shrubs of Fife and Kinross

      29 mounted Woodburytype photographic plates (mostly 238 x 188 mm.), each with printed captions. viii, 92 pages. Large folio, orig. green half-morocco & green pebbled cloth (extremities a bit scuffed, occasional minor foxing), upper cover with a large gilt vignette & lettered in gilt, spine gilt. Leith: "Printed for Private Circulation by Reid & Son, Timber Bush, Leith, 1879." A large, beautiful, and little-known photography book, privately printed, with 29 splendid images of trees made by the photographer Andrew Young of Burntisland, and printed according to the Woodbury process of Lock & Whitfield of London. "The following pages are the result of numerous wanderings through the counties of Fife and Kinross during the summers of 1875-6-7-8. The localities visited, and the many fine specimens of Trees and Shrubs which came under our notice, afforded us both pleasure and instruction, and in submitting our observations for perusal, our chief object will be fulfilled if we can interest the Reader in the subject of Arboriculture, or contribute a little to the information and enjoyment of any lover of nature."-from the Preface. The photographs of the magnificent trees are, quite simply, very beautiful, the trees mostly standing alone; the Woodburytype prints are in their characteristic chocolate brown color. "The List of Places Visited" provides details on the houses and their owners, with the years visited. A fine copy with the bookplate of P.H. Normand, Whitehill, Aberdour, Fife. There are a number of contemporary annotations in the text.

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.

        FIRST RUSSIAN CRITIQUE OF PRACTICAL REASON] Kritika prakticheskogo razuma i osnovopolozheniye k metafizike nravov / polnyi perevod s primechaniyami i prilozheniyem Kratkogo ocherka prakticheskoi filosofii sost. N. Smirnov [i.e. Critique of Practical Reason]

      tip. A. Transhelya, St. Petersburg 1879 - XVIII, 110, 192, [3] pp. 20?14 cm. Contemporary half leather with faded gilt-lettering on the spine. Original covers are preserved. Rubbed, private library ink stamps on the front pastedown, cover and last page, Soviet bookshop's stamp on the title page, owner's markings in text. Otherwise a very good copy. The first Russian translation of the most important work by Immanuel Kant (first originally published almost a century ago in 1788). In Russia Kant was an important figure, and attitude towards his philosophy work was complicated and ambiguous. With the development of high education different approaches to interpretation of Kant's philosophy have shaped. Perception of his work was particular for every town - Moscow, Kiev, St. Petersburg, Kharkiv. Kant's philosophy was spreading in waves (three overall), for example, at first it was introduced by professors Melman and Schaden in Moscow University who actively started to promote it; Karamzin published kind reviews, and finally first translations were printed («Osnovopolozheniye k metafizike nravov», Moscow, 1803; translated from German by Yakov Ruban). The first printed reference to Kant in Russia was made in 1790 by Melman (in Latin), and the first mention in Russian was made by Karamzin in 1791 (it was a letter about meeting the philosopher). All this together with Kant's election to the Academy of Sciences in 1794 was the start of Russian Kantianism. His name was so well known in Russia that Russian diplomats and travelers were deliberately seeking his reception. His ideas were popular among professors promoting them in universities (Melman, Shad, Finke etc.). It is known that even clerics were using handwritten translations in theological academies. So in the very beginning of 19th century there were made a few translations, most of them were low-grade because the source for translations was secondary or (and) in other than German languages. But even these bad translations disappeared for a few decades, and only in the second half of the century new professional translations (like this) were made. Decrease of Kantianism can explain such situation (the decrease itself was probably caused by the spread of materialism and positivism). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      1879. [Stevenson's second book] With Etchings by A. Brunet-DeBaines from Drawings by S. Bough, R.S.A., and W.E. Lockhart, R.S.A. And Vignettes by Hector Chalmers and R. Kent Thomas. London: Seeley, Jackson, and Halliday, 1879. Original brown cloth decorated in gilt and black, beveled, all edges gilt. First Edition of Stevenson's second book, preceded only by AN INLAND VOYAGE. Like his first (and his third) book, this one is of a geographic nature; however, EDINBURGH is a sizeable (10" by 14") folio production, with six full-page engraved plates (as well as numerous vignettes within the text). Stevenson began writing this in Paris during the summer of 1878 (the summer that ended with his "travels with a donkey" through the Cevennes). He completed it that autumn, back in Edinburgh; it was actually pub­lished in December 1878.~This copy is in brown cloth; blue, green and grey were also used, without priority. It is a bright, near-fine copy, with minor wear at the corners. We find this book to be quite scarce in original cloth -- perhaps because the six plates of a size and quality that is suitable for framing. Beinecke 24.

Gewalttaten an Christinnen und Christen, wie Plünderungen, Raub und Totschlag, im Kampf für den Islam und die alte bosnische Freiheit - wobei er sich offenbar auch persönlich bereicherte - ließen ihn beim einfachen Volk zum Freiheitskämpfer werden. Seine Agitation gegen die "Ungläubigen" erreichte vor und während der Okkupation Bosniens und der Herzegowina durch die

      DE SODOMIA TRACTATUS [DE LA SODOMIE] in quo exponitur doctrina nova de Sodomia Foeminarum a Tribadismo distincta auctore R. P. Sinistrati de Ameno Ordinis Minorum Observantiae Reformatorum. Parisiis, Apud Isidorum Liseux, 1879 [Isidore Liseux] [imprimé à Dole par Blind]. 1 volume in-16 (15 x 10 cm) de XII-89-(1) pages. Titre imprimé en rouge et noir. Reliure demi-chagrin caramel, dos à nerfs, tête dorée, non rogné (reliure de l'époque). Les couvertures du brochage n'ont pas été conservées. Belle impression sur papier vergé. Légers frottements à la reliure qui reste solide et décorative. PREMIÈRE ÉDITION. TIRAGE A PETIT NOMBRE (non justifié). Le traité De Sodomia est extrait du grand ouvrage du père Sinistrati, De delictis et voenis, publié à Rome en 1754. Il appartient au genre dit moechialogique ou pornothéologique, dans lequel se sont illustrés, parmi les apôtres de l'Eglise : saint Paul, saint Chrysostome, saint Augustin, et tant d'autres, jusqu'au jésuite Sanchez, dont le Tractatus de Matrimonio fait autorité auprès des confesseurs pour solutionner les si délicats et si complexes questions des rapports sexuels dans le mariage. C'est ici la première édition séparée de ce traité entièrement consacré à la Sodomie. Divisé en 92 petits chapitres relatifs au péché par le vase postérieur, de l'homme, comme de la femme (tribadisme) : Les femmes douées du clitoris peuvent exercer la sodomie - etc. Sont ensuite énumérées les peines encourues pour crime de sodomie : Celui qui a introduit sa verge dans l'anus et qui a éjaculé dehors doit être torturé - le feu doit être employé pour la punition du sodomite - etc. Ce petit livre est publié ici par les soins éclairés du savant éditeur Isidore Liseux, uniquement en latin, sans aucun doute pour éviter la censure que ce livre aurait pu engendrer s'il avait été publié en langue vulgaire. Il sera cependant réédité en 1883 par le même Liseux, en latin et en Français. Réédité dans la Bibliothèque des Curieux en 1912. RARE.
