        Life of William Blake. With Selections from his Poems and Other Writings. A New and Enlarged Edition illustrated from Blake's own Works. With additional Letters and a Memoir of the Author.

      2 vols. London: Macmillan, 1880. 2 vols., 8vo, xvii, 431; ix, 383 pp., with a portrait frontispiece in each volume and numerous illustrations. Original blue cloth with elaborate gilt-stamped designs. A very good copy of this attractive binding with the binder's ticket "Bound by Burn & Co" at the back. Second and best edition. Of special interest are the original prints - three from the Virgil woodblocks (in this edition printed on India paper and preferable to the prints in the first edition of Gilchrist) and 17 from electrotypes made from the original copperplates of the Songs of Innocence and of Experience. Gilchrist was Blake's first full-scale biographer; the work was unfinished when he died and largely completed by Dante Gabriel Rossetti who wrote the final chapter from Gilchrist's notes, with help from his brother William Michael, and also Swinburne whose own book on Blake was the result of his researches when reviewing Gilchrist's book. Bentley, Blake Books, 1680B.

        Religions et religion

      Calmann Lévy 1880 - - Calmann Lévy, Paris 1880, 15,5x24cm, relié. - Edition originale. Reliure en demi maroquin noir à coins, dos à quatre nerfs sertis de pointillés dorés et orné de doubles caissons dorés décorés en angles, date et mention « Ex. de J. Drouet » dorées en queue, plats de papier marbré, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, couvertures et dos conservés, tête dorée, reliure signée de René Aussourd. Quelques petites rousseurs principalement en début et fin de volume. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Victor Hugo à Juliette Drouet, le grand amour de sa vie : « A vous, ma dame. Humble hommage. V. » L'exemplaire provient de la bibliothèque de Pierre Duché. Ce dernier avait acheté en bloc la bibliothèque de Juliette Drouet et avait confié les volumes à René Aussourd pour les faire relier de manière uniforme avec l'inscription permettant leur identification en queue. Ex-libris encollés sur un contreplat et une garde. C'est à la fin de l'année 1878, soit après plus de quarante ans de relation, que Victor Hugo et son amante emménagent enfin ensemble avenue d'Eylau, dans le petit hôtel où le poète finira sa vie. « A partir de ce moment, on peut dire que la vie de Juliette ne fut plus guère qu'une tristesse ininterrompue, une servitude de toutes les heures. Elle souffre elle-même d'un cancer à l'estomac, elle sait qu'elle est condamnée, condamnée à mourir de faim ! » (Louis Guimbaud, Victor Hugo et Juliette Drouet, Paris, 1927). Malgré ses souffrances et sa grande faiblesse physique, elle tient toujours avec fidélité le rôle de garde-malade de son « Toto ». C'est d'ailleurs à cette époque que Bastien Lepage peint d'elle un portrait d'un réalisme frappant : « De son visage de déesse, sérieux et calme, la maladie impitoyable a fait une pauvre figure humaine, tirée et creusée, sillonnée de rides dont chacune semble conter quelque douleur. » (op. cit.) Religions et religion paraît deux ans avant la disparition de Juliette ; il s'agit de l'un des derniers ouvrages qu'Hugo dédicace humblement au grand et dévoué amour de sa vie. Hugo rendra d'ailleurs hommage au dévouement sans faille de sa compagne en lui offrant une photographie sur laquelle il inscrit : « Cinquante ans, c'est le plus beau mariage. ». Exemplaire de la plus intime provenance. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] first edition, one of the 25 numbered copies on laid to the form numbered and justified by the publisher, only large papers. Binding in full maroon, bordeaux, back with five nerves adorned with quadruple gilded cartridges and a listel of morocco green of water, gold date in tail, golden wheels on the headdresses, frame of quadruple gilded nets and a listel of morocco water green on the boards, silk ribbons and countertops moiré green of water, framing of a listel of morocco green of water and a golden net on the guards and the counterplates, covers illustrated by Manuel Orazi and back preserved, all golden slices, case bordered of bordeaux maroquin and boards of paper to the vat, interior of burgundy felt, superb binding in full morocco signed Devauchelle.

Most images are views of famous places, with just a few of statutes and a few of paintings. , each photograph ( size approx 20 x 26cm, size of each varies very slightly ) is mounted onto thick card/mount, most with basic description at base within photograph. Images include 1002 Arco di Costantino, Roma 4018 B. Arco di Titorol Colossco, Palatino Casa di Tiberio, Piramide de caio cestio, piazza del popolo - dal pincio, castel s angelo dal tevere etc. not dated but we put 1880 to show not a recent publication, images look to be from about 1870 to about 1890. Sadly no photographers names, and looks like not all by same photographer. We have seen a few similar, but some smaller and rarely with so many photographs. With the decorative embossed & gilt title & decoration to front cover, it looks to have been compiled/ produced & purchased in Rome c1880-1890’s, and not sure if unique (customer choosing the photographs) or produced in a limited number, some with just few photo and others with 24, 36, 48 or 60 photo’s.

        A Collection of nearly 500 volumes and more than 250 letters, prints, photographs, memoranda, ephemera, and other objects

      Various places, 1880s-1940s More than 750 items, most in original bindings and very good condition. A detailed inventory is available. This enormous collection documents the works, life, and circle of Sigmund Freud, one of the towering figures of the 20th century. Freud was an originator of modern psychology and the father of psychoanalysis. His pioneering clinical techniques continue to exert a profound influence on psychotherapy. His theories of personality, identity, consciousness, the unconscious, sexuality, desire, memory, childhood, conflict, and human behavior have shaped discourse in countless fields for more than a century. "Few figures have had so decisive and fundamental an influence on the course of modern cultural history as Sigmund Freud" (Library of Congress). Freud's ideas and his conception of mankind have profoundly influenced culture, the arts, and science. His theories have provided fertile ground for literary and historical theory. They have inspired novelists and poets, artists and musicians, playwrights and filmmakers. Freud's understanding of the mind and personality continue to shape our views, and his language has entered everyday usage and become part of daily life. Freud's work and legacy remain the subject of intense debate. "The controversy which exists in relation to Freud is more heated and multi-faceted than that relating to virtually any other post-1850 thinker (a possible exception being Darwin)" (IEP). Painstakingly formed over nearly thirty years, the collection fully documents the history, writings, and ideas of Freud and his followers, and their publication and dissemination, making it an invaluable research tool for the study of the 20th century. PLEASE INQUIRE FOR DETAILS.

        Faust der große Mann, oder seine Wanderungen durch die Welt mit dem Teufel bis in die Hölle. Erster und Zweyter Theil. [kmpl.]. [Nach Friedrich Maximilian Klinger]. Erstausg.

      2 Bll., 258 S., 3 Bll., (der zweite Teil ab S.133), mit zwei gest. Frontispiz u. Titevignetten, Kl.-8, Floral gemustertes Leinen (um 1880) mit goldgepr. Rückenschild u. Kopfgoldschnitt (beide zus. in einem Bd.) Engel 1376: "Der Titelkupfer, ganz in dem Ton der Vignette, zeigt die S.40 geschilderte Erscheinung des Geistes, gezeichnet von V. Kininger, gestochen von J. Neidl. [...] In den Titeln und Titelkupfern dieses Buches herrscht eine große Verwirrung, denn meistens fehlt den Exemplaren, welche in den antiquarischen Handel kommen, der Haupttitel, und es sind unrichtige Titel aus Faust dem Morgenländer oder aus Klingers Faust beigegeben, wie auch unrichtige Titelbilder. Die Unverschämtheit der antiquarischen Buchhändler geht so weit, daß sogar an Stelle des fehlenden Haupttitels Kupferstiche eingeklebt werden, welche mit dem Inhalte der Erzählung in gar keiner Beziehung stehen. Es giebt auch Exemplare, welche einen nachgedruckten Titel haben. [...] Dem Inhalte des Buches ist Klingers Faust zu Grunde gelegt, jedoch sind, um bei den Katholiken keinen Anstoss zu erregen, die Geistlichen bei Klinger hier durch Personen anderer Stände vertreten. Unter anderen Zusätzen und Aenderungen ist auch Lessings Bruchstück Faust und die sieben Geister eingefügt." - Hayn-Gotendorf II, 239: "Es giebt auch Expll. mit neu gedr. Titelbl. u. der veränderten Adresse: Wien, in der C. Haasschen Buchhandlung, o.J. Mit nur 1 Titelkupfer." - Ackermann V/582, 277: "Complete Exemplare dieses überaus seltenen Buches - mit den richtigen Titelkupfern [wie vorliegend] - werden bedeutend höher bewertet." - Meist fehlen die Kupfer dieses Titels oder wurden durch andere ersetzt bei nachgedruckten Titeln auf anderem Papier weicht auch der Text von der Erstausgabe ab, z.B. "...dessen Wanderungen" oder "...mit dem Teufel durch die Welt." - Einband geringfügig fleckig Innendeckel mit dem beeindruckenden ExLibris "E. D." (wahrscheinlich Emmy Destinn, 1878-1930, tschech. Opernsängerin, obwohl auch weitere Gestaltungen existieren nach einem anderen Titel zu urteilen erhielten die Bücher mit diesem ExLibris gleiche Stoffeinbände) Seiten tlw. leicht fleckig, sonst ein gutes Expl. - Als erste Originalausgabe sehr selten.

The spine is expertly made and internally the pages are very white and clean, a touch of foxing which is pretty normal for a book from the 1880s. Tightly bound with a touch of trimming. 17th Edition.

      St. Petersburg M. Stasyulevich 1880 - First edition. 2 volumes, 8vo (23.4 x 1.47 cm). Title, 559pp.; title, III, 562 - 1122, 4, XVIIIpp, with 24 lithographed plates after drawings by the author (12 in each volume); lacks map, pp. 881-896 bound after p.912, clean tear across pp. 1-2, occasional light foxing. Contemporary Russian half morocco, flat spines; spines rubbed, joints rubbed. The rare Russian first edition. Pavel Piasetskiy (1843 - 1919) was not only a respected doctor but also talented artist and writer. These versatile abilities ensured his participation in a number of official Russian expeditions to Asia and Middle East. In 1874 he joined a trade expedition to China (1874-75) headed by Colonel Yulian Sosnovskiy that travelled via Ulan Bator, Beijing and Tianjin to Shanghai, then up the Yangtze river and back via Lake Zaysan. This land route (taken for the purposes of exploring overland trade routes) was unusual in western travel to China, which generally took place by sea. The expedition's photographer, Boyarsky, was responsible for the most substantial early western photography of Mongolia. Although lacking the map, this copy represents a great opportunity to acquire a very rare title. ?.?.???????? ??? ??????????????? ? ?????????? 1874-1875 ?.? ? ???????? ????? ? ????????? ? ???? ??????????? ?? ???????? ???????? ??????? ????????, ?????? ??????? ????????????????, ????????????, ????????????? ? ??????????????? ????????? ? ?????????? ?????????? ??? ?????? ????? ???? ? ?????, ??????? ???????? ?????? ???????? ?? 2188 ????? ?????? ??????? ?? ????? ? 1880 ? ? ??????? ???????? ??? ????? ??????? ????????? ????? ?? ????? ?????? ??????? ???????? ??????? ???? ?????????? ?? ??????????? ???? ?????? ??????? ? ??????? ?? ???????

        The Pacific Coast Directory for 1880-81 Business names and Address of Merchant, Manufacturers and Professional Men, County, City, State, Territorial Including Calif, Nevada, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Arizona, British Columbia {with Late additions]

      1880. Thick Octavo. xxxii, 1496p. City, State and Regional Directories are valuable for historical research since they not only give the name, address and occupation but as in this case there are hundreds of display ads which show the basics needed in the new territories versus the growing sophistication of San Francisco. The earliest directories were compiled by newspaper men in their communities, this edition was done by L.M. McKinney who became the most thorough and the most successful of those done in the American West. He notes that here there are over 35,000 names. Listed here are not only the large San Francisco firms and Nevada's large mining operations but the territories such as Arizona which shows the growth with 56 pages of the businesses (including the soon to be ghost town of Harshaw (p. 1482) with its typical list of saloons and general stores. Display ads for Walkers Stage Coach line from Tucson to Tombstone. Tombstone has listed C.S. Fly, the noted photographer, of the famed city as well as John P. Clum, the Apache Agent and Publisher of the Tombstone Epitaph and friend of Wyatt Earp who fled Tombstone after the events of the OK Corral along with a large number of lawyers, liquor dealers, and many more. Montana has towns some of which became ghost towns and it was three years before Great Falls came into being. Besides providing a valuable key to rising and falling populations (particularly due to mining failures), there is here enough to keep the thoughtful historian to fill in the gaps from diaries, letters, ledgers, voting lists, and similar isolated information. The display ads are often full of graphics but only the A.L. Bancroft has sufficient wealth to use a three color ad in the entire directory. Copies often have detached and reattached pages. This copy is in very good condition with minor edge wear and a nice tight binding, spine has been nicely repaired and now housed in a protective mylar cover.The paper is fragile as with all copies but each page has the text complete at all points.

        Sunshine and Storm in the East, or cruises to Cyprus and Constantinople.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., , 1880. Octavo, original brown with red cloth "scroll" onlay, titling and elaborate pictorial design by Doré, in gilt and black to the boards and spine, dark blue surface paper endpapers. Folding coloured track chart before the frontispiece, folding map of Cyprus at the rear, engraved frontispiece and 8 other plates, title-page vignette and numerous woodcuts in the text. A little rubbed overall, slightly damping and short rip at the head of the spine, two small wormholes midway, rear free endpaper slightly creased, foxing front and back, pale toning to the text block, one plate loose, remains very good and not unattractive on the shelf. First edition. Mediterranean cruise of the intrepid "lady traveller", the "first part is an account of a voyage in the western Mediterranean in 1874. The second tells of a voyage in 1878 to Cyprus, the Aegean, and Constantinople" (Toy). This copy inscribed on the half title, "To Mr. Preston with best wishes from the Author, Annie Brassey, [Illegible] November 1883". "The cruises of the Sunbeam may have resembled family picnics rather than voyages of discovery, but Annie Brassey, who inspired and organised them, is not to be denied the status of a true traveller. A poor sailor, never really well at sea, she dared all it could do to her, in order that she might visit the farthest corners of the earth." (ODNB) A heavy book, and an often reread title, this is a reasonably well-preserved copy.

        REMARKS OF PRESIDENT HAYES, AT THE CELEBRATION OF GENERAL GARFIELD'S ELECTION, CLEVELAND, OHIO, NOVEMBER 4, 1880

      [1880], n.p. 1880 - Printed wraps; 4 pages, the last blank. SIGNED on the top margin of the front page "With Compliments/R. B. Hayes" by the President. Prints Hayes's speech celebrating the election of James Garfield to succeed him as President. "You all remember how four years ago the business of the country for weeks and months was interrupted and almost suspended by the doubts in regard to the result of the election. Possibly the weakest point in our system is that our Constitution does not adequately provide for the ascertainment and determination of the result of a Presidential election when it is close and doubtful and disputed." Don't we know it. A prefatory paragraph explains that "Immediately after the demonstration in the Public Square had come to a close, the torchlight companies and hundreds of citizens marched to the Kennard House and tendered a serenade to President Hayes. Bank Street filled with people and music. At 11.15 o'clock several prominent Republicans appeared on the balcony accompanied by the President." Hayes then went on to sing the praises of his successor, whom he describes as: "A man of broad, liberal, and generous views, he will look over this whole country. Every section of it will be fairly and justly dealt with. He will say to the mistaken men of the South, 'You are to be treated precisely as the citizens of my own State are to be treated. [Applause.] All that we ask of you is that you shall faithfully obey the Constitution.'" Slightly sunned at the top edge, otherwise Fine [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
