        Catalogue of Architectural and Ornamental Castings, Manufactured by George Smith & Co., Architectural Ironfounders and Sanitary Engineers, Contractors, By Special Appointment, To Her Majesty's War Department. Section VI. Spray Fountains, Drinking Fountains, &c.

      Glasgow (and London and Dublin): George Smith & Co., Sun Foundry. William Gorman & Co., draughtsmen and Lithographers. Hardcover. Good. N.d., circa 1880. Elephantine folio, 43 by 28 cm. Frontis rendering of the Sun Foundry elevation, title page, [2], 39 plates with a wide variety of fountains, some monumental and spectacular, and their component parts (sculpture, pools, canopies, aquarium fountains, etc.) A few of the illustrations are full page, and two are double paged (counting as two plates each). While the illustrations are simple line scaled drawings and straightforward lithography, the elaborate fountains, with their seraps, dolphins, cranes, acanthus and other Beaux Arts detailing, are visually arresting and make this an extraordinary trade catalogue. There are other George Smith catalogues to be found on OCLC First Search, but none are this particular one or in this large a format, and the total number of Smith catalogues in book form is also not large. (Other catalogues, presumed slightly earlier, can be of a fuller line offered by the company.) Soiling on the blue paper pastedown. Some looseness of the hinge. General wear.

        Islands of the World

      Map Set. Two maps. Pen and ink with watercolor. Each sheet measures 7 x 8.5". This beautiful set of two schoolgirl or schoolboy manuscript maps depicts the various islands of the world. The first map includes the British Isles, Sardinia, Iceland, Ceylon, Sicily, Corsica, Cuba, New Zealand, Anglesea, Madagascar, Candia, Newfoundland, Isle of Man, Balearic Islands, Haiti, Long Island, Tasmania and the Isle of Wight. The second map features Sumatra, Borneo, Mauritius and Bourbon, Madeira, Galapagos, Long Island, Prince Edwards Island, the Canary Islands, Cyprus, New Guinea, Jamaica, Java, Trinidad and Socratra Island. Both maps are beautifully colored in pink. The maps are in good condition with minor wear along the original centerfolds. Minor toning and foxing at places with some edge wear. Second sheet includes rip near top. <br><br>The maps date to circa 1880 and were most likely made by a student or apprentice as training in geography, drafting, and penmanship. Manuscript map-making was a useful educational tool in the 19th century, a period of imperialism and increased world trade in which geography grew significantly as a field of study.<br><br>In the United States and northwestern Europe, reform movements that sought to improve the quality and accessibility of childhood education pushed for the inclusion of geography in school curricula. One common method of teaching was the making of manuscript maps. Working from wall maps, globes, and atlases, students were made to meticulously hand-reproduce maps in pen and ink and with watercolor. Such exercises not only provided a way to review and retain geographical knowledge, but they also functioned as training in penmanship, calligraphy, and drafting. This map is a lovely document that straddles the line between art and geography.

        Official Map of the Territory of Arizona.

      New York: The Graphic Company, 1880. - Single sheet, (32 ¼ x 27 ¾ inches). Table of Distances to front pastedown. Fine folding duotone lithographed map with printed color in outline, laid down on cartographic linen in 35 sections (some toning). Original publisher's brown pebbled cloth gilt (a bit edgeworn). Provenance: With the inkstamp of Frederick Hodges to front pastedown. With inkstamp of "W. B. Walkup & Co., Framers, Map and Chart Mounters, 540 Clay Street, San Francisco." From the important cartographical library of Warren Heckrotte, his sale, Rare Cartography, Exploration and Voyages, Part II, December 3, 2015, Lot 133. "LARGEST SCALE MAP OF THE TERRITORY" (Streeter) First edition. Large and important map of Arizona as the mineral boom was taking hold, with mining districts designated through outline coloring as well as the counties and Indian reservations, with military telegraphs also shown. There is the Seal of the Territory with signature in plate of J.C. Fremont, Governor. Distances are indicated along the roads. Tombstone, founded a few years earlier, is prominent on the map, with its own district designation, but farther south Bisbee, founded the year the map was published, does not make an appearance. On the inside of the front cover is mounted a leaf of text, titled "Table of distances from and to Different Stations in Arizona Territory to Accompany Official Map." Paul Riecker, a nationally renowned civil and mining engineer, drew this map from his previous topographical survey of California and Arizona as part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It is the first official map of the Arizona Territory. Riecker led an early exploration party across the Colorado Plateau and was among the first to make contact with the Havasupai at the Grand Canyon. Paul Riecker sued for homestead rights, thereby creating the origins of Riecker's Addition. He built the first houses north of the railroad tracks in Tucson in 1880. In 1896, Paul Riecker mapped Pasadena, California, and laid out Inglewood and Redondo Beach, California. He was also involved in the Panama-Nicaragua Canal controversy as one of the original surveyors of the Nicaragua Canal route. Phillips Maps, p. 123. Streeter 526. Graff 1204. Rumsey 2980.

        Original tegning med siddende sydeuropæisk dame: Carolina.

      1880 1880 - Usigneret. 25x19,5 cm. I træramme [28x23 cm.]. * Simon Simonsen tilsluttede sig ligesom faderen Niels S. den gruppe af kunstnere, der i tiden mellem de to slesvigske krige kaldtes kosmopolitterne eller europæerne. Godt opmuntret af det københavnske kunstakademi tilegnede han sig en glat og naturalistisk tilforladelig malemåde og et motivvalg, der oprindeligt, især appellerede til et internationalt, aristokratisk publikum. Heri er han beslægtet med Otto Bache, men S. nåede aldrig Baches popularitet og anerkendelse. På et område kunne S. dog måle sig med Bache, i dyreskildringerne, specielt skildringerne af jagthunde. Især hundehvalpe malede S. med en indtagende charme, som ganske vist ligger langt fra vort århundredes opfattelse af kunst, men som den fordumsfrie beskuer også i dag kan have fornøjelse af at se på.

        The Trumpet Major. A Tale.

      London: Smith, Elder & Co., 1880 - 3 volumes, octavo. Original red diagonal-fine-ribbed cloth, front covers with pictorial design in black (encampment and mill, from a drawing by the author) and lettered in black, rear covers blocked in blind with two-line border to vols. I-II and three-line border to vol. III, spines gilt and black with design of standard, sword and bugle, cream endpapers. Housed in a dark red leather entry slipcase. Extremities lightly bumped and rubbed, spines darkened and gently rolled, rear covers of vols. I-II slightly marked, portion of light wear to head of front cover of vol. III, very occasional light spotting chiefly restricted to margins and endleaves; subtle restoration of free endpapers vols. I and III along gutter, though vol. I with remnants of old adhesive evident on contents leaf and verso of title-page and rear pastedown rather soiled, upper outer corner of vol. I sig. G3 reattached; vol. II with effaced ownership inscription to front pastedown, inner hinge starting at head, surface-splitting to foot of rear joint and old repair to head. A very good set. First edition in book form of Hardy's great novel of the Napoleonic war, written to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Trafalgar. The story was first published in slightly bowdlerized form in Good Words, Jan&#150;Dec 1880, with the book edition published on 26 October 1880 "in an edition of 1000 copies" (Purdy), though sales were slow and 250 sets of sheets were eventually remaindered to W. Glaisher, wholesale bookseller, in 1882. Volumes I and II represent Purdy and Sadleir's binding variant A, the original state, with the two-line border to the rear covers and the full stop between Smith and Elder in the spine-imprint centred rather than on the base line; volume III bears the three-line border and the base-line full stop indicative of scarcer variant B, a secondary binding dating from the Glaisher sale. The triple-decker format was largely adopted for sale to lending libraries, meaning that sets retaining the original cloth in anything approaching collectable condition are uncommon; this set comes from the library of Walter E. Smith, the pre-eminent modern bibliographer of 19th-century fiction, with his pencilled ownership inscription to the front free endpaper of the first volume: an excellent association.

        YOUNG JAPAN: Yokohama and Yedo A Narrative of the Settlementand the City from th

      London 1880-81, Trubner. Yellow pictorial cloth, 2 vols.. 418+522p., with 15 albumen photographs,1 folding reprodution. map, spine splits, only a few copies with photos, co-publi-. shed by Kelly, Yokohama, 15 x 24 cm. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. A MOST IMPORTANT EARLY BRITISH PRIMARY RESOURCE ON JAPAN An important primary source, written by the former editor of the "Japan Herald," the "Japan Gazette," "Far East," "Nisshin Shinjishi" among several other publications, the author was especially qualified in reporting the news. This current work is his most exhaustive account of both foreign and Japanese activities in Yokohama from its early opening in 1858 back to 1789. * During this 21 year Period, history was made, for Japan was now open to the West, and the flow of ship and goods made Japan aware of her backwardness. Printed in Yokohama at the author's private printing office, this work covers the author's personal observations of the arrival of Lord Elgin, Mr. Alcock, Japanese experiences with foreigners, murdered Russians, assassinations of foreigners, the murder of Mr. Henry Heusken, Mr. Oliphant and rebel Satsuma forces, Ohara Mission, account of Choshu forts cannon attacks upon foreign vessels, Sir Harry Parks, life in Yokohama, trade, start of "Japan Times," Chamber of Commerce, &c. * This work also covers "The King of Liu-kiu's own Story. * Perhaps the most comprehensive early resource on Yokohama & foreigners there done during this period. * All editions were identical in this aspect, and the contents are identical. A contemporary insight to Yokohama life. ALWAYS RARE ! * NOTE ON THE PUBLISHER, PRINTING LOCATION OF THIS WORK: On the verso of the title page it states: Vol.1: "Printed at the Private Printing Office of the Author, No.16, Yokohama, Japan." . Vol. 2: "Printed at the "Japan Gazette" Office, no.70, Main Street, Yokohama, Japan." . While the title page states at the bottom, "London, Trubner & Co., Yokohama, Kelly & Co 1880, 1881" this book was only published in Yokohama, but distributed by Trubner in London. The publisher "Kelly" is referring to a later change in that publisher's name to "Kelly & Walsh." . Regardless of the above irregularities, the book was clearly privately printed in Yokohama at John R. Black's office. A very rare and early Yokohama printing in English. *** Color scans can be sent by email. Images displayed may not always be the exact photo of the copy in stock for sale at any given time.

        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 fine 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 and the only biographer who actually met Blake. 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.

        [two lines in Hebrew, then] Liber psalmorum. Textum masoreticum acuratissime expressit ... notis criticis confirmavit S. Baer. Praefatus est edendi operis adjutor Franciscus Delitzsch.

      Lipsiae: Ex officina Bernhardi Tauchnitz 8vo (22.4 cm, 8.8"). [1] f., 82 pp.; manuscript notes bound in.. 1880 This "textum masoreticum" book of psalms, i.e., the traditional Hebrew text, was edited by masoretic scholar Seligman Baer (1825–97) and theologian Franz Delitzsch (1813–90) as part of their Masoretic Bible series, published by Tauchnitz between 1869 and 1895. A truly => unique copy, this particular volume is thickly interleaved with variously sized sheets and tabs containing the fastidious manuscript notes of published author => Walter Robert Betteridge, D.D. (1863–1916), a notable faculty member in the Old Testament Department of the Rochester Theological Seminary who swathed page after page in minute inked marginalia, and added yet more bulk with clippings from related texts — annotated, of course. Among the doctor's publications was an article on "The Accuracy of the Authorized Version of the Old Testament" (1911), including the Hebrew psalms. Provenance: Donated by Mrs. Betteridge to the seminary library, with institutional bookplate noting this on rear pastedown. Recent black moiré silk, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label. Ex-library with bookplate on rear pastedown as above, pressure-stamp on title-page, call number in lower margin of second leaf; paper brittle, dust- or sometimes soot-soiled(?) at edges, and prone to chipping. Replete with scholia, this is => a stunning testament to one scholar's study of the O.T.

        The Complete Poker-Player

      New York: Dick & Fitzgerald Publishers, 1880. Second edition, later printing. x, [11]-142, [2, catalogue] pp. 12mo. Publisher's green cloth with gilt-stamped title and illustration of hand holding four aces. Some light surface scuffing to front cover, else a fine copy with bright gilt. Second edition, later printing. x, [11]-142, [2, catalogue] pp. 12mo. One of the Earliest Poker Manuals. A fine copy of the second edition of this foundational work on poker. The rare first edition of 1875 - with only one copy located on OCLC - is, along with Winterblossom's The Game of Draw Poker, the earliest published work dedicated solely to poker. Blackbridge attempts to legitimize poker, and gambling and gaming in general, harmonizing it with Christian values and drawing comparisons to generally respected professions that trade in risk, such as that of banker and insurance provider. Beyond the moralizing tone, Blackbridge's work provides a technical and probabilistic discussion of the game, and includes a section on "Probabilities at Draw-Poker" by Dr. Pole. The rules printed in Chapter XIX are adapted from The American Hoyle. A third edition was published by Dick & Fitzgerald in 1884. Jessel 122; Horr 167; All In 13

        [title transcribed as] Chiao hui tao wen ["Wade Gile" system of transcription] or Jiao hui dao wen [in the "Pinyin" transcription system].

      Shanghai: St. John's College 8vo (25 cm; 10"). One wooden printing block, one page on each side.. 1880 In October of 1935 the distinguished theologian and scholar Y.Y. Tsu of St. John's University in Shanghai sent this wooden block to the Pacific School of Religion as a thank-you for the hospitality the school had shown him during his visiting lectureship at PSR in the Fall of 1931. The printing block is from the 1880 printing of the Book of Common Prayer in Low Wenli, being => the first edition in that dialect, and it contains four pages from the psalter. Dr. Tsu explained in the letter accompanying the block (still present with it) that "since the [adoption] of the use of moveable type years ago, these blocks have been discarded." Griffiths had noted explicitly of the 1880 edition that it was "printed from wooden blocks (kept at St. John's College)." Provenance: St. John's College (later University), Shanghai; Y.Y Tsu; Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Very good condition.

        Terrestrial table globe - Jan Felkl, c. 1880.

      SMALL TERRESTRIAL TABLE GLOBE WITH STANLEY"S NEW DISCOVERIES IN THE CONGO"Aardglobe naar de Nieuwste Bronnen bewerkt door W.J. Geerling. Fabriek van J. Felkl. te Praag', small (16 cm) terrestrial globe with 12 gores produced in Prague by Jan Felkl c. 1880. Lithographed in black and two shades of blue, with Asia, Australia, the Americas and parts of Antarctica outlined in red. With a brass meridian ring graduated in degrees and a brass pointer at the north pole (dial lacking), in a contemporary four-legged wooden base with central support, the horizon ring with a facsimile of a contemporary paper horizon ring pasted on it.A charming little globe, produced in Prague for the Dutch market by Jan Felkl (1817-1887) with the assistance of W.J. Geerling of Arnhem. Schools formed a large part of Felkl"s market, though the globes sold to schools are not distinguished from those sold to others. Since Felkl left Prague for Rostok in 1870 and traded as Felkl & Sohn from 1875, the plates for the present globe must have been made no later than 1870. Africa shows the results of Henry Morton Stanley"s exploration of the Congo in the years 1874 to 1877, so the plates must have been updated. It depicts the upper Congo accurately, reduces the old elongated Lake Albert to its proper extent and perhaps attempts to depict what are now lakes Edward and George. The presence of Transvaal Republic in South Africa suggests a date before its annexation by England in 1881.Condition: professional repair of a 1 cm hole in the Atlantic Ocean, east of West Indies, and a few minor scuffs, but still in good condition overall. A nice little globe from the famous firm of Felkl in Prague.Price: € 3.000,-.

        [Rossetti, Dante Gabriel- Autograph Letter to Watts, Mentioning Augmentation to one of his most famous poems, "Sister Helen" [Together with] a holograph DGR fragment from the poem.

      Fascinating one page letter on folded sheet, ca. 1880, a short but sweet letter to his closest friend in later life and fellow-Pre-Raphaelite, Theodore Watts-Dunton. "Wednesday, My dear Watts, Try & dine with me Saturday or Sunday. Which shall it be? & bring some Sonnets. I've given another Coup de grace to Sister Helen! Yours affec: DG." "Sister Helen," one of Rossetti's most acclaimed poems, was written in 1851 and appeared in his "Poems" (1870), but Rossetti continued to work on the poem for years, including changes, found in holograph, in Rossetti's own copy of a "Tauchnitz" reprint, and finally culminating in a finished revision ca. 1880. He sent some stanzas to Jane Morris, saying, "the tenor of the poem now shows that the witch began her spell on the wedding-morning of her false lover. I cannot think how I never did it before..." The final printed version of the expanded poem appeared in the "New Edition" of the "Poems" (1881). Therefore, mention of these incipient new additions to his friend, Watts, (and dubbing them a "Coup de grace!") to share with his closest friend during dinner, is indeed a delightful and interesting historical moment. [Together with] a HOLOGRAPH FRAGMENT OF THE ORIGINAL POEM ("SISTER HELEN") on 1 x 7" piece of paper: "A lady's here by a dark steed brought/ Sister Helen,/ So darkly clad I saw her not."/ "See her now or never see aught/ Little Brother." And on the verso of this fragment appears more Rossetti holograph lines, crossed out by him, from his "Sonnet LXII, The Soul's Sphere," "Some prisoned moon in steep cloud-fastness/ Blazed with momentous memorable fire." A very nice grouping of Rossetti ALS mentioning "Sister Helen" and holograph poem fragments.
