        HISTORY OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CALIFORNIA with Illustrations Descriptive of Its Scenery, Residences, Fine Blocks, Manufactories, from Original Sketches by Artists of the Highest Ability

      Oakland, California: Thompson & West, 1880. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. As an architectural depiction of early Los Angeles County, along with Wilson's comprehensive description of the county's townships, this book has no equal. It has come to be known ever since as simply the Thompson & West. J. Gregg Layne in his Books of the Los Angeles District, describes it as "one of the rarest of that fine early series of California county histories [...] complied from the newspapers of the county from 1854 to 1880, as well as city and county records, and from interviews with many early pioneers." Among the estates and residences depicted is a veritable who's who of notable Angelenos, including those belonging to Mrs. Phineas Banning, Don Manuel Dominguez, J.E. Hollenbeck, H.M. Newhall, John Rowland, and W.H. Workman. Includes a full-page colored rendition of H.H. Lloyd and Co's map of California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona and 86 lithographed plates, including two two-panel. 11" x 15"; 192 pp. Original dark brown cloth binding over the original black sheep spine, with gilt titles and decorative blindstamping. Small tears to the extremities of a few pages, with a smudge to the border of the map and the opposing leaf. Ink presentation inscription to the Ebell of Los Angeles from Katherine S. Parker, a longtime member, on the Table of Contents leaf. A short tear to the fore-edge of that leaf has been neatly mended. Two additional mends have been made to the verso of the title page. A pair of unobtrusive Ebell ink stamps appear on the front pastedown. The leather has been archivally refurbished. Light fading along the extremities of the boards; otherwise very good. Dawson Eighty 78; Layne 53.

        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.

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.
