        Photographic Carte de visite portrait of T.H. Huxley.

      London Stereoscopic & Photographic Company, circa, 1880. Carte de visite measuring 94 x 60 mm, Engaging carte de visite of Professor Thomas Huxley, one of the pre-eminent naturalists of Victorian England who championed the evolutionary theory propounded by Charles Darwin throughout his professional career.Huxley is also an important figure in Australian natural history as he accompanied the government biologist John Macgillivray aboard the Rattlesnake scientific survey of 1846-50. This expedition, under the command of Captain Owen Stanley, travelled north along the coast of north Queensland and through the Barrier Reef before exploring coastal New Guinea and the Louisiade archipelago. During his time in Australian waters Huxley speculated on concepts related to biology and evolution, so much so that he became a stauch advocate and defender of Darwin upon returning to Britain. Blank margins neatly trimmed (no loss of image) else fine.

        Grammar of the Narrinyeri Tribe of Australian Aborigines.

      Adelaide: E. Spiller, Government Printer, 1880. Octavo, 24 pp. A rare grammar of the Narrinyeri (now Ngarrindjeri), who inhabited the country on the shores of Encounter Bay and the lakes Alexandrina, Albert, and Coorong, extending along the Murray River in South Australia. The language is now listed as extinct. The work is written by the Reverend George Taplin, a Congregationalist minister who arrived in Adelaide in 1849. He opened a school in Port Elliot in 1854, and in 1859 he was appointed as teacher in the lower Murray districts by the Aborigines Friends Association. His accomplished and well-regarded work in philology borrows from earlier attempts by the Lutheran Missionary, the Reverend H.A.E. Meyer, but is more firmly based in his own lengthy study of the language. His work was widely adopted and used by his more famous successor, Lancelot Edward Threlkeld. He died of heart disease in 1879.First published in 1878, both editions of this work are uncommon. A little creased and a few spots, especially early and late, tasteful modern bookplate; very good, printed paper wrapper, very slight rust to staples.

        The Lepidoptera of Ceylon

      London: L. Reeve, 1880-1887. xii, 190, [2]; viii, 162; xv, [1], 578, [2], 215 hand coloured lithographed plates. Hardback. 3 vols, 4to, orig. publisher's maroon cloth, gilt titling to spine. An extremely fine and clean set of this work which is seldom offered for sale. Rare. Frederic Moore (1830-1907) was originally an artist associated with the East India Museum. The fine drawings in this work "representing about 350 species, of which about 250 are figured in their various stages of larva, pupa, and imago" were drawn and lithographed by the author after drawings by the Ceylonese artists Geo. & W. de Alwis and others. The collection of drawings was exhibited at a meeting of the Entomological Society of London in 1878, and "was considered to be such a valuable contribution to Eastern Entomology that the following resolution was proposed ... It was hoped that an application to the Ceylon Government for their publication would be successful". Moore offered that if this publication were approved, he would offer his services free of charge to edit and prepare descriptions of the various species and incorporate new material, "thus forming as complete a history of the Lepidopterous fauna of Ceylon as was at present possible". Nissen ZBI, 2877.

Octavo (9" x 6 1/4"). Bound in half leather with marbled boards. 1st edition. Orozco y Berra entered the College of mines, and in 1834 was graduated as a topographical engineer. He afterward studied jurisprudence in the seminary at Puebla, and was admitted to the bar in 1847. He was sent to the city of Mexico in 1851 to defend a lawsuit for the state, and in the next year appointed director of the national archives. He was secretary of public works from 1857 till the fall of the Liberal government, and in 1860 was professor of geography and history in the military college. On the return of Juarez to Mexico in 1861, Orozco became assistant secretary of public works, and in the next year took charge of the portfolio, and after the abolition of that office he was commissioned to write a memoir on native languages. In May, 1863, he was appointed associate judge of the supreme court, and when the government abandoned the capital before the French army he remained in Mexico to work for a living. He refused a seat in the junta de notables, but later, when many distinguished Liberals thought it their duty to assist the new imperial government, he accepted office. In November, 1865, he became assistant secretary of public works and director of the National museum, and in August, 1866, he was appointed professor of national history in the College of mines. On 25 September of that year he was appointed councilor of state, and in the conference at Orizaba in November he was one of the few frankly to express the opinion that the empire could no longer be maintained. After the capture of the capital by the Republican forces, Orozco was sentenced to four years' imprisonment, but in November of the same year the sentence was commuted. He was pardoned in 1868, and, obtaining through his friends a post in the mint, devoted himself to scientific studies, and was soon an acknowledged authority on ancient Mexican history and hieroglyphics. He became a member of the Royal geographical society of Madrid and numerous foreign and Mexican scientific associations. He was one of the principal editors of Jose M. Andrade's Diccionario Universal de Historia y Geografia Mexicana (7 vols., Mexico, 1853-'5), and chief editor of the appendix to that work (3 vols., 1855-'6). He wrote Noticia historica de la Conjuracion del Marques del Valle, 1565 a 1568 (1853) ; Memoria para la carta hidrografica del valle de Mexico 1864); Geografia de las lenguas y Carta etnografica de Mexico, con apuntes para la immigracidn de las tribus (1865); Memorias para el plano de la ciudad de Mexico (1867) Materiales para una cartografia Mexicana (1871) Historia de la Geografia en Mexico (1876 and 1880); and Historia antigua de Mexico, his most famous work (1880-'1), in four parts Civilization, The Primitive Man, Ancient History, and ConquestCondition:Edges and corners rubbed through, corners bumped and chipped, hinges and spine ends rubbed, page ends chipped.

        Religions et religion

      Original edition.Binding half old red grief with some discreet restorations, back with five nerves, when tail, paper plates to the tank, and contreplats combed guards lined paper, preserved covers, red head, then bindingPrecious autograph signed by Victor Hugo Alphonse Daudet.Buffer library of Madame Daudet on the first guard.Victor Hugo is for Alphonse Daudet, like other writers of his generation, the undisputed master of arts Hall of Fame. His father figure sprinkles the works of Daudet, commonly called alongside those of Rousseau, Byron, Sand and Delacroix.If during childhood and youth Daudet, Hugo, exiled giant on his island of Guernsey, remains an unattainable ideal, "almost beyond humanity," Back in France allows him to meet him someday. Around 1875, shortly after the publication of his first works, Alphonse Daudet and Julia are well received in Hugo who now lives with Juliette Drouet.They therefore become intimate of the house until the poet's death. Victor Hugo is involved in the education of the young Léon Daudet, best friend grand-son of Hugo, George and later husband of Jeanne ephemeral.In his Memories of a literary circle, Julia Daudet evokes friendship of ten years with the "idol of all France poetic""I see the great Victor Hugo end of his table; the old master, a bit isolated, a little deaf, sits with God silences, absences of a genius on the brink of immortality. The white hair, colored head, and this eye old lion that develops side with power ferocity; he listens to my husband and Catullus Mendes between which is very lively discussion about youth and celebrity known men and their attractiveness to women. [...] During the debate we went to the salon, Victor Hugo dream by the fire, and famous, universal and demigod regret perhaps his youth, while Mrs Drouet sleeping quietly. »The friendship between the last great romantic writer and one of the masters of the early naturalist school reflects the sharpness of Victor Hugo who, at the height of his fame, and retains a special kind attention for the remote yet modern literature Hugo's lyricism.This dedication Hugo Daudet on a skilled, with The Pope and The Supreme Pity, of "philosophical testament" by Henri Guillemin, symbolically resonates as a legacy by a devout follower of the political and moral responsibility of the writer.Provenance: Alphonse Daudet, sales Sickles (1990, IV, No. 1200) and Philippe Zoummeroff sale (2 April 2001).Gift extract of a literary circle by Julia Daudet:"How can we forget that first visit home, rue de Clichy, in the modest apartment so disproportionate to his glory, the idea we had of the glory that had filled palaces: He gets up the seat he occupied the fire in front of Madame Drouet, his old friend, (...) I am amazed at its size, but soon, when it will meet me and talk to me, I would find it very big, very intimidating. And this I felt so shy, I always try them in front of Victor Hugo, the result of this great admiration, respect it as an absent god, my parents instilled in me the genius of a poet. I will overcome never that trembling voice every time I answer his kind words, and I say astonish for nearly years to hear women, admitted to him, maintain their inner and their usual trivia.That night, when he had made me quite confused, Mrs Drouet, she said with a charming good grace - Here is the corner of the old and you are too young for us. But Victor Hugo will introduce you to his daughter, Mrs. Lockroy; alone has standing to that.And I was driving on the other side of the room, moderately large, though, but that was as divided in two by a table topped with a bronze elephant, very majestic, Japanese or Chinese, I think. It was enough to make two very distinct small groups that communicate easily, but without merging.At the time of his return, Victor Hugo was dazzling wit, many memories and told with an inexhaustible verve when the policy is not too invading his hospitable table. And grace in the home, what noble ways, what a beautiful smile grandfather in her hair I have gradually seen to blanch the snow eighty years I poets, all the poets attending this salon on Rue de Clichy, later the hotel Avenue d'Eylau. But here it was the change of place? There was like a step down in health, and in the spirit of good old man. Yet he always loved to entertain his friends, and the hospitality of this open house was not one of his charms least because, around the table, embellished with a piece by the two grandchildren of the Master, the guests were seeking their watchword in the eyes of the host, and he sometimes found a vein of memories so vivid, so picturesquely expressed, which remained blinded entire evening. M mo Drouet slowly growing old with him, sheltered under two snow bands, a somewhat theatrical elegance and quaint, until a ruthless evil dug his face so thin, made painful effigy has painted Bastien Lepage, who was to die prey to the same torture. In the recent times, the Master looked painfully, intimate dinners, that empty plate, that noble ravaged face.- Mrs Drouet, you do not eat, you must eat, have courage.Eat! She was dying. Did he know? Was he trying to delude himself the fine old so tough and strong, and who saw this companion from fifty years!In the large room where looks beautiful portrait of Bonnat, the paternal gesture, where the bust by David presides immensely; in the lounge, decorated with these striped multicolored tapestry that seemed strained to Dona Sol; in the garden come to the verandah by a flight of stairs two reappear Leconte de Lisle, Meurice and Vacquerie, Paul de Saint-Victor, smiling Banville, Flaubert and Goncourt conversing together, Mallarmé, Leon Cladel, Francois Coppe, Catullus Mendes, Clovis Hugues, shadows in a faded Eden; and Leon Glaize, Gustave Rivet, Pierre Elzéar, the tiny pink Ms Michelet offering a festive evening, and ambassadors, diplomats, Emperor of Brazil; painters, sculptors, and many politicians that I do not remember the names!Here the immediate impression that I drew one of those evenings when we visited, Alphonse Daudet and me, a snowy evening, where during the ride our horse fell three times across the Esplanade des Invalides:I see the great Victor Hugo end of his table; the old master, a bit isolated, a little deaf, sits with God silences, absences of a genius on the brink of immortality. The white hair, colored head, and this eye old lion that develops side with ferocity of power; he listens to my husband and Catullus Mendes between which is very lively discussion about youth and celebrity known men and their attractiveness to women. Alphonse claims that in a living room filled with all sorts of talents, of any age, a young man, the unknown author, the poet will ignored her female eyes beautiful it is. Catullus Mendes replied that he will initially unnoticed, and that all women will go to awareness: this seems true to me. Fortunately women do not have the eyes of their face, but those of the mind and heart. For the intellectual, the beauty of an artist, a poet does not count, it is the look of the thinker, the tormented face of the man who lives his feelings. They go to the talent, grief passes, they hardly thinking about physical beauty. Now one might reply that this is an ambitious sympathy they seek famous authors, but the other feeling, one that would attract to this tempting youth whose Alphonse speaks, seems less blameless.And I laugh to this claim of two charming conversationalists, generate, analyze us. But to say the woman is like saying the bird; there are so many species and genera, warbling and plumage are so different!During the debate we went to the salon, Victor Hugo dream by the fire, and famous, universal and demigod regret perhaps his youth, while Mrs Drouet sleeping quietly. His beautiful white hair shading his fine head like two wings of a dove, and knots of her bodice following her sweet breath, almost resigned, old woman asleep.It was soon after this event took place the great manifestation of scrolling Paris Avenue d'Eylau, before the windows of the small room that became mortuary in May 1885 filled with roses and simply furnished, such as accounts, museum Victor Hugo, a part taken in the former apartment of the poet, Place Royale.Although suggestive, the old home of the Marsh, "and when you think that there Victor Hugo wrote almost all his historical plays one imagines the poet, opening, the morning hours that were familiar to him, this high window on hotels all equal and same style, around the square, and remembering tournaments, duels, walks and agitations of several generations disappeared under the shadow of these ancient and solid arcades and not keeping track of the fugitive humanity.We still had dinner at Victor Hugo week before his death. He tells us by entering paler than usual, the inflected approach:- I will soon go, I feel it; and then relying on the shoulder of George: No 'that' a long time ago that I would be gone.I have never forgotten the focus rather solemn and as prophetic those words, I was imbued with sadness and foreboding; I felt the dispersion of this unique center and could not re ever!

        Report on the Geology of the High Plateaus of Utah (No Atlas) Wallace Stegner's Copy

      Washington, D. C.: Government Printing Office. Fair. 1880. First Edition. Hardcover. Brown government binding with blind rules on front and back and gilt title on spine. Spine cloth is loosening, chipped and missing 1/2" at base. Boards rubbed and loosening. Text block remains tight. Ex- library copy from New York Academy of Sciences. No atlas. All plates are present. This copy was used by Wallace Stegner in his research for "Beyond the Hundredth Meridian", although there is no indication within; no marginalia or owners signature. "Beyond the Hundredth Meridian" was unlike any of Stegner's previous works, requiring research spanning 5 years. Stegner often consulted with his mentor Bernard DeVoto during the writing. At one point Stegner writes to DeVoto, "I really am scared to death to let anybody see this, for some reason. Maybe I know the thing stinks." The writing of Hundredth Meridian would solidify Stegner's growing environmentalism and the book remains a classic of the history of the west. Book was acquired directly from the Stegner family. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 307 pp .

      privately printed, London 1880 - First edition, first issue; 4to, pp. [4], 33; original yellow printed wrappers bound in; contemporary olive buckram lettered in gilt on upper cover; extremities browned, mild red ink transfer on the upper wrap, a number of erudite pencil annotations; very good copy. Penzer, noting that the yellow wrappers contained a printed half-title, is frequently misinterpreted as suggesting that there is a half-title page. This is not the case. There is no half-title page, only the half-title as printed on the front wrapper. The first two issues of this title were published by Bernard Quaritch, the first issue omits the Quaritch name and the date from the title. The two issues together did not comprise more than 200 copies, "and Messrs. Quaritch state that under a hundred were sold." Ostensibly translated by Burton, he in fact was its author; written in 1857 under his nom-de-plume Hâjî Abdû Al-Yazdi but it was not published until 1880 by Quaritch. Penzer, p. 97. Casada 84.

        The First Exhibition of the Art Society of New South Wales held at the Garden Palace... Catalogue

      Sydney: Turner & Henderson, 1880. In remarkable original condition.. Duodecimo, pp. 22, [ii]; original wrappers, preserved in a folding cloth box. The rare catalogue of the Society's inaugural exhibition held at the Garden Palace which had been purpose-built for the Sydney International Exhibition in 1879. An impressive two hundred and twenty oils, watercolours and drawings were hung: Mrs. Alfred Williams' painting Ophelia, the most expensive at £75, was highly praised by the Bulletin art critic at the time. Her identification as Mrs. Florence E. Williams gives more understanding of the high price as she had exhibited under that version of her name at the Royal Academy since her teens before coming to Australia. Her inclusion was significant for, as Joan Kerr has noted, "Florence's paintings seem unique for Australia at the time when domestic genre paintings are almost unknown." Florence was a founding member of the Art Society and had been a friend and pupil of (and much influenced by) Millais. As one of the very few figure paintings in the exhibition Ophelia gained most attention, but she also had four other oils in the exhibition. An earlier painting (not in this exhibition) of a crimson Rosella set against lush vegetation and Mount Wellington was sold for a record $90,000 in 2015.As well, the catalogue notes W. C. Piguenit's Sydney Harbour from North Shore priced at £52.10.0 (in modern times it reached $198,000 at Melbourne auction). The catalogue also records works by Collingridge, Halstead and Short, as well as seven New Zealand watercolours by J C Hoyte (the President of the Society). The list of "Working Members" names 80 artists and the Honorary and subscribing Members 47, notably Sir Henry Parkes.From 1871 the New South Wales Academy of Art had held annual exhibitions and had urged the establishment of a Public Art Gallery. This had as much to do with inter colonial rivalry - Melbourne had opened its Gallery in 1861 - as it did about fine art. Once a permanent home for the collection had been found the New South Wales Academy of Art dissolved in 1880 and it was acknowledged that an 'artists' society' was needed: a society of professional artists rather than the more inclusive Academy. Artists, led by Arthur and George Collingridge, sought to establish an Australian school of painting and the first exhibition of The Art Society of New South Wales was held in December 1880 following its formation in July of that year. This catalogue notes that the Society was established for the 'promotion and preservation of the Fine Arts in Sydney" and to "enable professional artists to exhibit their works advantageously." Further aims of the Society were lectures on art, and a sketching club. The Life Class, already established will 'give rise to a greater variety in the works…."This catalogue is a rare surviving record of the Art Society's first exhibition and succinctly captures the impressive depth of Australian Art in the late nineteenth century. Provenance: John Chapman collection.

        COMING SOON! PARSONS & POOL'S ORIGINAL UNCLE TOM'S CABIN AND TENNESSEE JUBILEE SINGERS [caption title].

      [Providence? ca. 1880]. - Broadside, 24 x 9 1/4 inches. Several small holes at bottom of sheet, else fine. Illustrated broadside for a performance of UNCLE TOM'S CABIN, with woodcuts showing scenes from the book. The text continues: "The only company on the road to-day presenting the old-time manuscript version of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Wait for us, watch for us, as we will positively appear in your city soon. Watch for day & date." The Jubilee Singers originated at Fisk University, and from 1871-1878 toured the United States and Europe as fundraisers for the University. In 1879, the Singers were organized into a joint stock company. This broadside is presumed to be from this later period.

        Birds of the Bahama Islands

      CORY (CHARLES B.) The Birds of the Bahama Islands, first edition, 8 hand-coloured lithographed plates, tissue guards,publisher's black cloth boards, gilt title vignette to upper board, modern black morocco spine, [Nissen IVB 203 Wood, p.300 Zimmer p.137], 4to, Boston, by the Author, 1880. Condition: see photographs. Clean copy with fresh & vivid color plates. First edition of this outstanding ornithological work describing 149 native species of the West Indies, with eight beautifully hand-colored lithographic plates. Among the more outstanding ornithological works dealing with the West Indies we may mention Charles B. Corys Birds of the Bahama Islands, a popular account of the 149 species recorded from the islands (Anker, 84). It contains not only descriptions and notes on each native species, but a hypothetical list of 36 additional birds that might occasionally occur there. Cory, himself, made five trips to nearly all of the islands of the West Indies, and besides, sent out various collectors to the different islands, some of whom were in the field for from six to eighteen months each, collecting altogether many thousands of specimens. Mr. Corys book forms an invaluable hand-book of West Indian ornithology, and will prove indispensable to all future workers in this field (J.A. Allen). He was appointed honorary curator of the Field Museum in Chicago in 1893.

Benjamin Ball (1833-93), élève de Moreau de Tours, fut le premier titulaire de la chaire de clinique des maladies mentales et de l'encéphale à l'asile Sainte-Anne. Influencé par son maître, il s'intéresse aux substances aujourd'hui classés parmi les stupéfiants: il préconise par exemple l'emploi de l'opium dans le traitement de la mélancolie (p. 235) tandis que Moreau de Tours conseillait le hachisch. La théorie de l'hérédité de Magnan et de Charcot eut également un impact fort sur sa pensée, comme le montre sa 16° leçon, consacrée à l'hérédité (p.353). dernier plat détaché.
