      New York: Dick & Fitzgerald, [ca. 1880].. 114,[46]pp. including illustrations. Publisher's printed wrappers. Minor shelf wear, upper spine repaired with tape, rear wrapper similarly repaired. Internally very clean. Very good. Jonathan H. Green, "the reformed gambler," is the most important figure in the early literature of American gambling. A famed gambler in his youth, he was known for his talents from Texas to Boston and all points in between. He abandoned gambling just shy of age thirty, and became an advocate against it, seeking to expose the tricks of the trade. Here he offers the inside scoop on games such as Dog Loo (played on the Red River), Whist, Thimbles (or cups), Poker, and Euchre, and on techniques such as palming, lapping, forcing cards, shuffling, cutting, dealing, stocking the pack, and cogging dice. Many other interesting subjects are also discussed, including horse racing, and nailing a card to a wall by a pistol shot. Green adds numerous tales of personal experience, and the illustrations offer the reader the ability to recognize common sleights of hand. Of course, by offering detailed information on how to recognize gamblers' tricks, Green is also providing an advanced tutorial for the aspiring gambler or cheat. The copyright date on the verso of the titlepage appears to read 1850 (the first year of publication), but the worn type throughout, as well as the other titles advertised as available by Dick and Fitzgerald, indicates that this edition was likely produced around 1880. In any edition, a rare and significant work. TOOLE-STOTT 324.

      [Wyoming, 1880. Very minor wear. Near fine. A pair of lovely watercolors of the camp of two U.S. Infantry companies in Wyoming Territory during the Ute War in 1879-80. The watercolors show the camp of K and F companies of the Ninth Infantry near the Snake River. Based on the scenery, these must depict the southern part of Jackson's Hole, the only area which corresponds to the views shown. One shows the camp during the summer, and the other shows it in the winter. The camp was established in a valley, which is shown as lush and green in the summer scene, but barren and snow-covered in the winter scene. A note on the verso of the summer scene says that the "pictures were painted with water colors by a soldier of this command." The verso of each card contains pencil descriptions of each scene. For example, in the comments on the summer scene it is noted that "the brush back of the tents are sage brush...the timber back of the camp follows the river still to the right are mountains and hills with cedar timbers." Some of the text on the verso of the winter scene discusses the various buildings in the camp, including the cook's house and the sutler's store. The Ninth Infantry was ordered into the field as part of Army strategy during the Ute War, and established their camp along the Snake River in Wyoming Territory in November 1879. They remained there until July 1880. Original artwork from the Indian wars of the West is rare.

      Pueblo Laguna, N.M. [1880-1881].. Mounted albumen photograph, 33 x 25 cm., on contemporary bristol board. Some dampstaining on mount, small chip in center of photograph (in the empty sky). Withal, a fine image. A fine view of Pueblo Laguna, taken by the important frontier photographer, Jack Hillers, during the Bureau of American Ethnology Expedition of 1880-81. Hillers' work was made famous by Frederick S. Dellenbaugh in his book, CANYON VOYAGE. After learning the art of photography from professionals such as E.O. Beaman and James Fennemore (photographers on the early Powell expeditions), Hillers became the official photographer with the Powell expeditions of 1872-76 and 1878, recording many beautiful images in Arizona and southern Utah. He eventually surpassed his instructors in both technique and artistic sense, and this image, from a New Mexico pueblo, reflects his advancing photographic skill. The image is of the pueblo at some distance, but it is nevertheless clear and sharp. "Jack Hillers emerged as an outstanding practitioner of the wet-plate trade" - Goetzmann. Goetzmann, EXPLORATION AND EMPIRE, pp.560-61. Taft, PHOTOGRAPHY & THE AMERICAN SCENE, pp.288-91.

        Zebra Herd

      Great Britain:: Original Watercolor,, [c.1880-1900].. Archivally Framed. Fine/ . Fine original watercolor on rag paper. (25.4 x 17.7 cm). Matted in Rag. Framed in one inch gilt basket weave moulding. Condition: Fine, with minor aged paper remains to verso corners from previous mount watermarked 1902. Pathos notwithstanding and made all the more alluring by want of attribution, this vivid watercolor scene (Lively herd of running Zebras) was envisioned and thus executed not by a professional artist, field naturalist or explorer but by an amateur, or armchair, traveler/naturalist /painter. The drama evident yet depiction gentle, this watercolor quite plausibly was painted by a young Victorian gentlewoman who would have learned the art of nature painting, as was the custom, and who would have sought inspiration from the grand natural history color plate volumes of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This bold and vivid naturalists' display of a tapestry of dappled foliage or the crystalline translucence of disturbed water or the splendid reticulated plumage is clearly stylized by a primitive eye, yet executed with an accomplished and refined hand; the technique is learned. The resulting composition is one of dramatic charm.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1880 Very Good. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, August 1880. First Edition. Numerous illustrations from engravings. 9.75" x 6.5", original pale lavender wraps perfect-bound wraps, 8 pp. + 161 pp. + 16 pp. supplemental articles + ads. Some chipping along bottom edge, some soiling. No, that's not a crease at lower right - that's a bit of flippancy in Scribner's Holiday Issue cover design. A Strong Very Good, or a bit more, with even a virtually complete spine (albeit end-tweaked -see scan). something of a rarity in that regard. See scans. Contents extraordinarily clean and bright. The original issue, in wraps - not from the hardbound aggregations - of the August,1880 issue which contains Ellen E. Dickinson's article, "The Book of Mormon" ["manuscript found" ], dealing with the claim of the daughter of Reverend Solomon Spaulding that her father had, in fact, written a work [based on his actual experiences, it is claimed, at mounds he excavated near Conneaut, Ohio, in 1812] which was subsequently usurped by Joseph Smith for the creation of the Book of Mormon. Fascinating reading, and the writing has a ring of authenticity to it, un-hyped and oddly down-to-earth, direct and sincere and simple for the language of the day - though I am certainly no expert on the subject. Other topics in this issue of the always thoroughly illustrated Scribner's Monthly - almost all thoroughly illustrated with engravings - are: About England with (Charles) Dickens, Fra Girolamo Savonarola, The French Republic, Canada, Whippoorwills, the Grandissimes, Peter the Great, Curiosities of Advertising, American Diplomacy, Rivers (superb engravings), and the etchings of Seymour Haden. Supplemental section has an interesting piece, with charts, on horology: 'Extract from the Judges in Horology', from the 1879-1880 Sydney International Exhibition', with three charts which compare the performance of top watchmakers of the time. Very scarce as the in-wraps original. See scans. LG13

        La Republique de 1879.

      [France, c. 1880]. - Oblong 4to. French ms. on paper. 46 pen-and-ink drawings on plates (numbered 1-48; wants 2, 17, and 18); 2 mounted photo prints. Contemp. half calf with giltstamped cover title "Album". Interesting album containing political caricatures of a high quality, levelled at the state and society of the Third Republic under President Grévy (1879-87). During his term, France underwent strong social and political changes which are immediately reflected in the drawings. Obviously the work of a professional caricaturist, they were probably intended for publication in newspapers and magazines (or may even have been published). Some pictures poke fun at everyday events, others provide a comment on the developments of several months. - Several drawings tipped in; also includes two revised photographs of drawings (a third one is lacking).

        Les Baisers précédés de mois de mai. Poème. Mit zahlreichen Stichen in doppelter Suite [Text Französisch].

      Lemonnyer, Rouen 1880 - 1880. XXV, 106 Seiten, 48 Seiten. Meisterhafter Ganzlederband der Zeit (signiert 'Victor Barbou') mit vergoldeten fünffachen Fileten und Eckfleurons, ornamentaler Rückenvergoldung, sehr reicher Innenkantenvergoldung, marmorierten Vorsätzen und Kopfgoldschnitt. (minimal bestossen oder beschabt, Gelenke leicht beschabt, innen im Rand ganz gering braunfleckig, sonst innen sauber, insgesamt sehr schönes Exemplar). Erste Ausgabe in dieser Form, eines von nur 200 numerierten Exemplaren der Vorzugsausgabe. Hier vorliegend Nummer 116, eines der 100 Exemplare auf 'Whatman'. Typisches und luxuriöses Beispiel französischer Bibliophilie. Erstmals erschien der Band 1770. Tatsächlich enthält er zwei Texte: zuerst eine neue Übersetzung des Klassikers 'Die Küsse' aus der Feder des Johannes Secundus (N. Evaerts), danach eine Reihe von Gedichten aus der Feder Dorats im typischen Geschmack des 18. Jahrhunderts. Die Illustrationen, gestochen u.a. von De Longueil, stammen von Charles Eisen. Alle liegen hier im doppelten Abdruck vor, wobei der Plattenton der Abzüge etwas differiert: die erste Suite der Kupfer resp. Textkupfer ist schwarz gedruckt, die Extrasuite in leichtem Rötelton. Dorat (1734-1780), von Beruf zuerst Advkat, später Musketier, verfasste zahlreiche Werke, darunter Gedichte, Tragödien und Komödien, sowie etwa 100 Fabeln. - Barbier I, Sp. 378 (für die Erstausgabe) - Cohen/Ricci, Sp. 308 f. (ebenfalls für die EA) - Vicaire Sp. 284 (für vorl. Ausgabe. Danach müßte es sich beim vorliegenden Exemplar um eines der nur 50 Exemplare auf China handeln, denn nur diese haben die doppelte Suite. Der eingetragenen Nummer nach und auch nach Beurteilung des verwendeten Papiers handelt es sich aber wirklich um ein Exemplar auf Whatman-Bütten, wenn wir auch kein Wasserzeichen erkennen konnten. Entweder hat der Vorbesitzer sein Exemplar mit der zweiten Suite getrüffelt, oder der Verleger ist, abweichend von seinen Angaben im Subskriptionsprospekt aus dem Vicaire offensichtlich seine Angaben entnommen hat, von seiner ursprünglichen Planung abgewichen). 1200 Gramm.

        Verissima relacion embiada a Don Fray Andres de S. Maria Obispo de Cochin, la qual trata de como en las Indias de Portugalay un hombre que tiene trezientos y ochenta años, y ha sido ocho vezes casado, y se le han caydo todos los dientes dos vezes, y le bolvieron a nacer. ... Este es el verdadero retrato del hombre que passô en braços al glorioso San Francisco por el Rio de Ganga, el qual fue sacado a instancia del reverendo padre Don Fray Andres de S. Maria Obispo de Cochin. Salamanca, Antonio Ramires, 1609. 4to (19 x 14.5) . With a woodcut illustration of a man carrying Saint Francis across the Ganges River in India on the title-page and a woodcut centaur below the colophon. Vellum (ca. 1880).

      Huth library (1880), p. 1523 (this copy); cf. Barbosa Machado, Bibliotheca Lusitana, I (1741), pp. 154-155 (the other 1609 Spanish ed.); not in KVK/WorldCat. The only known copy of what appears to be the first edition, in the original Spanish, of a legend of the miraculous appearance of Saint Francis of Assisi (ca. 1181/82-1226) in India, taken from a manuscript account by Andrés de Santa Maria in Goa, who was Bishop of Cochin from 1588 to 1615. The text gives an account of a miracle Saint Francis is said to have worked in Islamic Bengal. Although Saint Francis's travels never took him further east than Egypt and the Holy Land, he did succeed in improving Christian-Islamic relations soon after the Islamic conquest of Bengal. The present story was apparently related by a Bengali man said to be 380 years old. The man had been an Islamic beggar and was talking to a friend on the bank of the Ganges River when a Christian monk appeared and asked for help crossing the Ganges. The man picked up the monk in his arms and carried him across the holy river. On the other bank the monk revealed himself as Saint Francis of Assisi and rewarded the man with youth, good health, black hair and a good character to the end of his days. There are two Spanish editions, both published in Salamanca and dated 1609, each known only from a single surviving copy, but the order of their publication remains uncertain.From the library of one of the greatest collectors of all time, Henry Huth (1815-1878). In fine condition and with generous margins. Only known copy, preserving the original Spanish text of a legend of Saint Francis in India.

DSB 12, 45 : "Sabatier also compared the thoracic and pelvic girdles in the vertebrate series. He based this comparison on muscle insertions, which appear to be similair along the vertebrate series and to exhibit a certain similary among bony structures. This work resolved several lengthy debates, including that on the significance in man of the coracoid process. He demonstrated that this structure is analogous to the pubis of the pelvic girdle."
