        Fauna der Gaskohle und der Kalksteine der Permformation Böhmens. Band I-IV. (complete)

      Prag, Selbstverlag and F. Rivnác, 1879-1899 [1901?]. Four volumes in four. Folio (34.0 x 25.5 cm). 459 pp., lavishly illustrated with 167 mostly chromolithographed plates (several double-sized or larger, folded), and over 400 text engravings, of which some plate-sized. Volume I (1883): 182 pp., 48 plates (some larger, folded, a few plain), 160 text engravings; volume II (1889): 114 pp., 44 plates (several larger, folded; numbered 49-90, 80b, 81b), 79 text figures (numbered 117-188); vol. III (1895): 132 pp., 42 plates [several (much) larger; numbered 91-132], 122 text engravings (numbered 189-310); vol. IV (1901): 101 pp., full colour frontispiece, of a landscape with "Miriopoden"; 33 plates (numbered 133-165), 64 text engravings (numbered 311-394, and including phototypes of fossil animals and tracks, freshwater bivalves, and, e.g. the author at work). Original uniform brown cloth sumptuously embossed with black floral borders, and gilt vignettes depicting Permian amphibians, reptiles and fish. Marbled edges.l Magnificent and exceedingly rare work by the Czech geologist, palaeontologist, and ornithologist Antonin Fric, or, in German, Anton Fritsch (1832-1913) on the rich Permian and Carboniferous faunas of Bohemia. Fritch was professor of geology at the Polytechnikum in Prague, and founder and member of several natural history societies in Bohemia. ?Professor Antonin Fric ? is considered by many to be the greatest Czech museologist, pedagogue and educationalist of the nineteenth century. He devoted his life to the Czech Museum (Museum of the Czech Kingdom, now the National Museum). From 1855, he was curator of the zoological collections. In 1864, he founded the Geological-Palaeontological Department and from 1871 was Professor at Prague University. In 1880, he was made Director of the Zoological and Palaeontological departments of the Museum. He travelled widely, including to Great Britain, the Mediterranean and the USA. His main works in zoology were monographs on European birds and Czech bats, fish and crustaceans. In palaeontology, he wrote on the stratigraphy and palaeontology of the Czech Upper Cretaceous, Carboniferous and Permian fauna. He also published several important books about the popularisation of geology and palaeontology? (the Edinburgh Geologist, 38). The Fauna der Gaskohle contains the description and fine illustrations of many early vertebrates, notably fish, amphibians, and reptiles, generally described from well-preserved specimens. The last volume deals with invertebrates, including many myriapods, several spiders, some insects, crustaceans, and bivalves. Fritsch introduced many new names, most of which still valid today. Fritsch himself published the work, clearly in low numbers, and over a long period of time, which explains its rarity, especially of complete copies in original bindings. The last volume has 1901 on the title page, but Horn-Schenkling dates it from 1899. The total numbers of text illustrations as given by Fritsch on the title pages, and the actual numbers do not match, because Fritsch also counted figures with a b-number. This set has a label on the front pastedowns stating "Presented to the Imperial College of Science Geology Department from the library of John Walter Gregory [name handwritten] 1934." Gregory (1864-1932) was a British explorer and geologist, perhaps best known for his survey of the Great African Rift Valley. He was the successor of Frederic McCoy as chairman of the Geology Department of the University of Melbourne, Australia. Slight rubbing to joints and spine ends, stamp in the top-margin of the title pages, a few light spots, otherwise a very good, clean set. Extremely rare in a complete state. We know of no auction records in the last 50 years. Only one complete set in modern binding has been listed in an antiquarian catalogue in the last 4 decades. Horn-Schenkling II(2), p. 89; Nissen ZBI, 1438.

        History in brief of "Leopard" and "Linden," General Grant's Arabian stallions, presented to him by the Sultan of Turkey in 1879. Also their sons "General Beale," "Hegira," and "Islam," bred by Randolph Huntington. Also reference to the celebrated stallion "Henry Clay". [Philadelphia, PA], J. B. Lippincott Co. for the author, 1885.

      1879. Large 4to. 66 pp. With 5 plates. Original giltstamped green cloth. All edges gilt. First edition of this contemporary account of the Arabian stallions presented to General Grant in 1879 by the Sultan of Turkey; "Leopard" went on to achieve eternal fame as the first Arabian stallion to be registered in the stud book of the Arabian Horse Club of America. - During Grant's 1878 state visit to Constantinople, Sultan Abdul Hamid II personally escorted the General through the royal stables, and noting his fondness for horses, presented Grant with two stallions to be shipped back to the United States. The horses fell under the care of the breeder Randolph Huntington, who attempted to derive a new American breed from the Arabians using the old breeders' rule of "out-cross once and breed back by three closely related sources." - Huntington prepared the text of the present work as well as commissioning portraits of the stallions, and dedicated the book the the recently-deceased "General U. S. Grant, and his love for horses." - Occasional chipping as common, still a very good copy from the library of the Virginia Republican newspaperman, lawyer, and federal judge Robert William Hughes (1821-1901) with his bookplate. Hughes, who had known Edgar Allan Poe in Richmond and was particularly close to President Grant, also raised horses, including thoroughbreds registered with the American Jockey Club. Boyd/P. 61.

        Die Urzelle. Nebst dem Beweis, dass Granit, Gneiss, Serpentin, Talk, gewisse Sandsteine, auch Basalt, endlich Meteorstein und Meteoreisen aus Pflanzen bestehen: Die Entwicklungslehre durch Thatsachen neu begründet.

      Tübingen, Laupp 1879. - Mit 30 lithograph. Tafeln. VII, 71 S. Lwd. d. Zt. Interessantes und ungewöhnliches Werk des Reutlinger Rechtsanwalts, Swedenborgianer und Forschers Otto Hahn (1828-1904), der hier anhand von Meteoritenstücken beweisen will, das das irdische Leben außerirdischen Ursprungs wäre. Ein 1881 in dem New Yorker Magazin "Science" erschienener Aufsatz des amerikanischen Physikers George W. Rachel behauptet ein Treffen Hahns mit Charles Darwin ("Mr. Darwin on Dr. Hahn`s discovery of fossil organisms in meteorits"). Angeblich hätte Hahn mit Darwin Gesteinsproben mikroskopisch untersucht - und Darwin wäre von Hahn`s Außerirdischen Theorie überzeugt worden und hätte gerufen: "Almighty God! What a wonderful discovery!" - Allerdings ist diese haarsträubende Geschichte nicht wirklich zu beweisen, im Umfeld der Rezeption Charles Darwins hat sich in den letzten Jahren darüber eine lebhafte Diskussion entwickelt. Zumindest befinden sich die Werke Hahns in der Bibliothek von Charles Darwin! - Text mit einigen kurzen Anstreichungen in Blei, ebenfalls (radierbar) in Blei einige Anmerkungen bei den ersten 5 Tafeln. Desweiteren auf den SS. 2 - 7 einige saubere Unterstreichungen in rot. Fliegender Vorsatz mit Sammlerstempel. Insgesamt recht gutes Exemplar! [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      1879. Folio. XVII, (1), 322 pp. Top edge gilt. Sewn, with remains of former cloth spine. Rare British papers and correspondence with local agents and officers on the slave trade of Egypt, Turkey, Zanzibar, and Arabia. Includes a report on the release of a slave, a Dutch subject, from an Arab Sheikh (p. 263) and the report by Cdr. Powlett from Jeddah concerning the Red Sea slave route: "Within the last month 160 slaves have been landed near Jeddah, from near Cid. It would appear that the authorities, though not exerting themselves to suppress the traffic in slaves, do not permit the law to be too openly infringed: this has raised the price in slaves [...] The Farisian Islands are used to land cargoes of slaves upon, where also they are employed in diving for mother-o'-pearl [...] [Baggalah sailboats] come into Jeddah without there being any trace of what they have done. They have no special fittings, and do not fasten the slaves (who are mostly children) in any way [...] I submit that laws framed to meet the case of slaving vessels making long voyages will be found wanting when applied to the Red Sea traffic" (ibid.). - Other relevant sections are: "Egypt" (pp. 4-50; includes further correspondence relating to the slave traffic in the Red Sea and on the Arabian Peninsula, e.g. "Slave Trade in Red Sea and Gulf of Aden. Notes by Assistant Resident at Aden. To communicate to Egyptian Government such information as may be advisable"); "Turkey" (pp. 112-123; includes correspondence relating to the Slave Trade in the Red Sea); "Turkey.

        ALS ("JBurckhardt"). Basel, 16. VI. 1879.

      1879. Large 8vo. 3 pp. on double leaf. To his former student, the classicist Heinrich Gelzer (1847-1906), thanking him for a lecture. Burckhardt had wanted Gelzer to follow Nietzsche as professor of Greek at Basel: "[...] Es sind wesentliche neue Anschauungen in wahrhaft überzeugendem u glänzendem Zusammenhang ausgesprochen. Es sind endlich wieder Resultate, nachdem man in Schriften vieler guter u redlicher Leute immer nur Material, d. h. Schutt u. resp. Staub hat besehen u. schlucken müßen. In den Zeiten da ich noch Culturgesch[ichte] des Mittelalters las u. bald diesen bald jenen Byzantiner durchsah, dämmerte mir hie u. da Aehnliches, aber ich steckte noch im allgemeinen Vorurtheil drin. Über Kortüm freilich war mir ein Licht aufgegangen seit ich in seinem 'Mittelalter' (II, p. 506) die famose Stelle kannte, wo es heißt: Byzanz nahete raschen Schrittes seinem Verfall u. Untergang - worauf aber nur 6 Zeilen später wieder von einem 'langsamen Todeskampf' die Rede ist. Unsere Viri eruditi arbeiten wohl meist recht fleißig, aber schreiben thun sie manchmal gar zu schludrig u. das Geschriebene noch einmal zu überlesen, ehe es an den Setzkasten geht, ist noch immer nicht allgemeine deutsche Sitte [...] Wie gerne ich Sie bei Nietzsche's Abdication hier gehabt hätte, können Sie denken, aber ich verdenke es Ihnen nicht daß Sie in Ihrer jetzigen deutschen Laufbahn bleiben, aus welcher man ja nur einmal austreten kann, dann jedoch für immer. Wir hoffen nun an Jacob W. einen künftigen und redlichen Collegen zu erhalten, aber Sie wären uns natürlich gar viel erwünschter gewesen. Freilich ahne ich, daß Sie eine Fülle großer Aufgaben historischer Art vor Augen sehen, bei welchen Ihnen die hiesige Stellung eines Professors der Philologie gar zu hinderlich gewesen sein würde [...]". - Heinrich Gelzer had studied under Burckhardt for five semesters. After taking his degree in 1869, he taught in Basel and Heidelberg for several years before accepting the chair of Classics and Ancient History in Jena in 1878. Nietzsche resigned from his Basel chair of Greek in 1879; his successor was Jacob Wackernagel (1853-1938). - Slight edge defects. Printed in the Letters, vol. VII (1969), no. 812, p. 32f.

        Leaf signed in Arabic. [Theresienstadt, 1879].

      1879. Oblong 8vo. 1 page. Two lines in Arabic. - The fanatical Bosnian Muslim Vilajetovic, popularly known as "Hadzi Lojo", repeatedly incited his fellow believers to violence agains Bosnian Christians and their churches. His fearless struggle for a conservative, backwards-oriented Islam and the old Bosnian freedoms, fought by way of murder, theft and plunderings which made him wealthy, spread his fame and made him a popular hero. His agitation against the "unbelievers" climaxed during the Austrian occupation of Serbia and Herzegovina, which the Ottoman sultan had relinquished at the Congress of Berlin in 1878. Hadzi Lojo led a mob to the pasha's residence in Sarajevo and called upon Muslims to turn against Ottoman rule and resist the coming of the Habsburg army. He was sentenced to death in 1879, but the sentence was committed to a short prison term in Theresienstadt (Terezin in Bohemia), as Emperor Franz Joseph did not wish to create a political martyr. In 1884 he was released and sent into exile, as which he chose Mecca.

Publisher's deluxe dark green full calf, spine in compartments with raised bands, sides bordered with gilt and blind rules, titles gilt-blocked to front board, gilt-rolled turn-ins, all edges gilt. Colour chess-puzzle frontispiece, black and white full page chess puzzles in the text throughout. Original portrait photograph of the author pasted down to tissue guard facing the frontispiece. Ink ownership inscription to front free endpaper verso. Some scuffs, scratches and stains to the covers, still a handsome copy, sound and on the whole internally clean, a very good copy. Occasional annotations to the puzzles, mostly in pencil but the odd one in ink, sometimes giving date of solution. First edition, very scarce, with a signed original photograph of the author facing the frontispiece.

        Presbyterian Board of Home Missions and Friends of the Laguna Mission. [drop-title]

      Laguna Mission, March 1, Laguna, Valencia Co., New Mexico 1879 - 16mo, pp. 20; uncut and unopened; self-wrappers, stitched, as issued; very good. An Ayer Linguistic duplicate with a Newberry release stamp at the bottom of the last page. This is the third annual report of the Laguna Mission. OCLC reconds only the Berkeley and Newberry copies, this being a duplicate of the latter. "Presbyterian missionary John Menaul was New Mexico's premier publisher of bilingual works. He got his first taste of printing in Africa and put his experience to use in New Mexico beginning in1877. Following four years of work with Navajos at Fort Defiance, Arizona, he assumed a post at Laguna Pueblo, fifty miles west of Albuquerque. There he launched what has since become known as the Laguna Mission Press. Recognizing that a key element of bringing Christianity to the Pueblo people was a common language, Menaul produced educational material and religious tracts in English and Keres, the Laguna tongue. After leaving Laguna Pueblo in 1889, he settled in Albuquerque and continued to print Spanish language religious works" (from Lasting Impressions: The Private Presses of New Mexico, 2005). Graff 3354; not in Streeter (who had at least one other Laguna Mission imprint). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Discours parlementaires de M. Thiers.

      1879Paris. Calmann Lévy. 1879-1889. 16 volumes in-8, plein maroquin rouge, triple filets dorés en encadrement, chiffre doré au Général Charlemagne à chaque angle, dos à nerfs ornés, tranches dorées, doublure de maroquin bleu, frise dorée en encadrement. Reliures signées Chambolle-Duru. Exemplaire sur Hollande à grandes marges. Envoi autographe signé sur le faux-titre : "A Mr le Général Charlemagne. En souvenir de Monsieur Thiers. El(ise). Thiers". Envoi d'Elise Dosne-Thiers, femme d'Adolphe, qui mourut en 1877. Ces Discours parlementaires, publiés par le sénateur Calmon, recouvre la majeure partie du XIXème (1830 à 1877). Chaque discours est précédé "d'une notice dans laquelle nous avons cherché à résumer, d'une façon aussi succincte et aussi exacte que possible, les circonstances au milieu desquelles ils ont été dits, les faits qu'ils concernent, les arguments auxquels ils répondent"."Député, il est le principal soutien du cabinet; ministre, il en est le principal orateur et ne discute pas seulement des matières relatives au département dont la direction lui est confiée; il prend part à tous les débats importants sur la politique intérieure et extérieure, sur les finances, l'administration municipale et départementale, les travaux publics, l'armée, sur les questions commerciales, sur celles de droit public et de droit international. Ses discours sont des modèles de clarté, de méthode, de savoir théorique et pratique, de bon sens, et chaque jour grandit son autorité comme orateur et comme homme d'Etat". "... son discours sur la loi des associations en mai 1834..., sa réponse sur l'indemnisation américaine en avril 1835, son improvisation sur l'alliance anglaise en juin 1836, resteront parmi les chefs d'oeuvre de l'éloquence française". Le Général Charlemagne (1819-1896) fit une grande partie de sa carrière en Algérie, où il commandera le 8ème Hussards. 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. Très bel exemplaire, sans aucun doute le plus désirable que l'on puisse trouver!
