        Carta Geologica del versante settentrionale dell'Appennino compreso fra i fiumi Montone e Foglia

      1880. Carta geologica, in due fogli giuntati ed intelati, raffigurante parte del territorio romagnolo compreso tra i fiumi Montone e Foglia. La sua realizzazione, che durò quasi un ventennio, si deve al Comm. Giuseppe Scarabelli Gommi Flamini, il quale il 28 settembre del 1863 ricevette dal Consiglio Provinciale di Forlì l'incarico per la stesura di una carta geologica da utilizzarsi quale base per la stesura di una monografia economica, statistica ed amministrativa della provincia. Con lettera datata 20 aprile 1865 la Regia Prefettura di Forlì commissiona la realizzazione della stessa a Scarabelli e Giovanni Capellini. Nel maggio del 1868 quest'ultimo dovette rinunciare all'incarico per motivi famigliari. Venne sostituito nei lavori di rilievo da Cesare d'Ancona. AL 29 settembre 1868 il disegno era terminato e nel 1873 la carta era pronta per passare alla fase di incisione e finalmente nel 1878 la carta era pronta per essere data alla stampe. Sia durante i lavori di realizzazione della stessa che a lavori terminati la carta venne esposta in diverse occasioni ottenendo numerosi riconoscimenti: Esposizione agricola industriale di Bologna del 1869, Esposizione agraria industriale e di Belle Arti di Forlì del 1871, Esposizione geografica Internazionale di Parigi del 1875, Esposizione universale di Parigi del 1878. La carta fu rilevata in luogo alla scala di 1:50000 e qui ridotta alla scala di 1:100000. Alcuni segni del tempo, ma complessivamente buon esemplare di questo monumento cartografico.

Justly celebrated covers of blue cloth stamped in gilt with art nouveau rendering (by Frederic J. Shields) of a sketch from Blake's manuscript notebook of two figures reclining in an open poppy petal beneath a canopy of belladonna petals under a spangled night sky. The spine reproduces in gilt a figure from Blake's "Night Thoughts." Binder's ticket (Burn & Co.) present. Pages uncut.

        Report and Journal of Examination of the Country North-East of Eucla

      [Adelaide, Government Printer], 1880. Foolscap folio, 9 pages plus a large folding map ('Plan shewing Country north east of Eucla examined by Mr James W. Jones with the view to decide upon boring operations for water', 555 x 705 mm). Drop-title, sewn as issued; bottom corner of the front page slightly dusty; small blank corner piece of the map slightly creased; an excellent copy. The map embraces the entire extent of the Nullarbor Plain within South Australia covering 'an area of 16,500 square miles ... [with] a complete description of the country from the coast to the route taken by Mr Ernest Giles on his exploration trip to Perth'. It also includes 'Professor Tate's track shewn in red' (presumably relating to Ralph Tate's travels there resulting in his lengthy paper, 'The Natural History of the Country around the Head of the Great Australian Bight' in the Transactions ... of the Philosophical Society of Adelaide, South Australia for 1878-9: see McLaren 15803). The journal 'gives a minutely detailed description of the country passed over ... It will be seen that this hitherto comparatively unexplored country has been thoroughly examined. I found that in many important particulars the surmises in previous reports respecting this country were not borne out'. No less interesting is the account of the discovery of the waggon and last campsite of Fairie and Woolley, who died of thirst north of Eucla two years earlier. South Australian Parliamentary Paper Number 191 of 1880; the quantity printed is not stated, but around 700 copies was usual (and this item is rarely encountered on the open market). McLaren 10540.

        Leaves from a Journal being a Record of the Visit of the Emperor and Empress of the French to the Queen and of a Visit of the queen and H.R.H. The Prince Consort to the Emperor of the French.

      London: Printed Strictly for Private Circulation,, 1880. Octavo. Original blue sand-grained cloth over bevelled boards, title gilt to the spine, and to the upper board, gilt double fillet panel to both boards, black surface-paper endpapers. A little rubbed, corners bumped, head and tail of spine crumpled, front board creased with consequent crack to the front pastedown, pale toning else very good. Small quantity of relevant clippings loosely inserted. First edition, extremely uncommon, Copac lists Oxford University only, and OCLC locates a single copy at the Australian National University. This copy inscribed by Victoria on the half-title; "To The Earl Cowley, In recollection of happy past days, from Victoria R.I., Nov. 21 1881". The Crimean War had "transformed Napoleon III into Britain's closest ally. An imperial visit to Britain in May 1855 convinced Victoria of the emperor's qualities; Empress Eugénie too met with her approbation, for Victoria admired beauty in other women. Victoria paid a reciprocal visit in August to her ally in Paris, where she was 'delighted, enchanted, amused and interested, and think I never saw anything more beautiful and gay than Paris', and paid a visit of respect to the tomb of the first Napoleon. The visit sealed the alliance …" (ODNB). The recipient, Henry Richard Charles Wellesley (1804-84), became ambassador to France in 1852, and was instrumental in fostering Anglo-French relations during the period; "Cowley was close to Napoleon by the time the Crimean War broke out. 'I am not generally of a confiding character in regard to foreigners', he wrote a little later, 'but there is something about that man that always imbues me with a feeling of his sincerity'". A superb association copy of a genuinely scarce book.

        Louisa May Alcott Manuscript Leaf.

      - Autograph manuscript page from Louisa May Alcott's Jack and Jill, Chapter VIII, page 129. One page. The manuscript page reads, "up no capers with that child! The idea of a hot bath in the middle of the day, and him full of dinner, and croupy into the bargain! Wet a corner of a towel at the kettle-spout and polish him off if you like, but you won't risk his life in no bath-tubs this cold day.' Miss Bat's word was law in some things, so Molly had to submit, and took Boo away, saying, loftily, as she left the room, 'I shall ask father, and do it tonight, for I will not have my brother look like a pig.' 'My patience! How the Siamese do leave their things around,'she exclaimed [crossed out a moment after'] as she surveyed her room after making up the fire and polishing off Boo. 'I'll put things in order, and then mend up my rags, if I can find my thimble. Now, let me see,' and she went to exploring her closet, bureau, and table, finding such disorder everywhere that her courage nearly gave out. She had clothes enough, but all needed care; even her best dress had two buttons off, and her drawers were a perfect chaos of soiled ruffles, off gloves, old ribbons, boot lacings, and bits of paper. 'Oh, my heart, what a muddle! Mrs. Minot wouldn't think much of me if she could see that,' said Molly, recalling [crossed out 'that Mrs.'] how that lady once said she could judge a good deal of a little girl's character & habits by a peep at her top drawer, & went on to guess how each of the schoolmates kept hers, with great success." The final printing reads slightly differently. Matted and framed opposite a photograph of Alcott. The entire piece measures 17.5 inches by 20 inches. Manuscript pages from Alcott seldom enter the market. Jack and Jill: A Village Story was originally published in 1880. The story takes place in a small New England town after the Civil War where Jack Minot and Janey Pecq are best friends and next door neighbors. Always seen together, Janey gets the nickname of Jill, to mimic the old rhyme. The two go up a hill one winter day, and then suffer a terrible accident. Seriously injured in a sledding accident, they recover from their physical injuries, while learning life lessons along with their many friends. They are helped along their journey to recovery by various activities created by their mothers. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        The Northern Territory of South Australia

      Adelaide, E. Spiller, Government Printer, 1880. Octavo, 55 pages. Original flush-cut quarter cloth and card covers, with the title page details repeated on the front cover; cloth a little flecked and slightly sunned and rubbed; card a little marked and mottled, with a small corner crease and minimal silverfish nibbling to the rear cover; small sections of the front pastedown pulled away from the cover by the stitching (but the binding is still tightly attached); trifling silverfish nibbling to the tip of the bottom corner of a handful of leaves; overall an excellent copy. At the time of publication, the author was Chief Warden of the Goldfields of the Northern Territory. 'This pamphlet is published by permission of the Government of South Australia; but it is only proper to state that the recommendations herein made, especially with reference to the formation of a railway, have not yet been considered by the Ministry, and must therefore be only regarded as the individual views of the author. A portion of the matter in the following pages was compiled by me' for Harcus's 'South Australia', published in 1876; it 'incorporated some useful papers written by residents there'. That book also contained an important chapter on Central Australia, incorporated here with additional material. To quote Harcus: 'the following interesting and well-written account of Central Australia, along the line of telegraph, has appeared in the "Register". The writer, Mr J.A. Giles, is well acquainted with the whole of the country which he describes. It is the best and most trust-worthy account of Central Australia which has yet been published'. Knight remarks that it 'affords an excellent insight into the vast tract of country'. The article takes up most of the 17-page chapter; it refers on occasion (and thus eliminates any misattribution) to Alfred Giles, the explorer with strong telegraph line credentials. It is augmented with a page of quotations from Charles Winnecke's 1879 Herbert River expedition reports. Ferguson 11231 (pretty light on detail, even to the extent of not recording the binding).

Unter den Widmungen gibt es eine kurze Partitur (Polka Mazur) oder auch Verse wie ?Einst hatten sich Deutsche und Slaven entzweit - Nun sind sie verglichen in jüngster Zeit - Sie leben nun friedlich, sie pflegen die Freundschaft Und fern sei für immer jedwede Feindschaft.

        Heidi's Lehr- und Wander-Jahre.

      Gotha: Friedrich Andreas Perthes,, 1880-81. Eine Geschichte für Kinder und auch für Solche, welche die Kinder lieb haben. Von der Verfasserin von "Ein Blatt auf Vrony's Grab". [Together with:] Heidi kann brauchen, was es gelernt hat. 2 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth decorated in black and lettered in gilt, marbled edges, white glossy endpapers, volume II with decorative endpapers, marbled edges. Housed in a custom red quarter morocco slipcase and red cloth chemise. Vol I: spine faded, recased with ?new endpapers, a couple of spots to contents; vol. II: contemporary ownership inscription in ink on title-page. A little colour restoration to head of spine, hinges partly cracked but holding. An excellent set. First editions of both parts in the original German. Throughout the 1870s Johanna Spyri (1827–1901) published stories for adults and children based around her reminiscences of growing up in rural Switzerland. But huge success came with the publication of Heidi, the most important Swiss contribution to children's literature after the "Swiss Family Robinson" of J. R. Wyss. As usual with Christmas books, the first book was published in December 1879 but dated the following year. Spyri wrote the novel in just four weeks. It was first published anonymously in German, and quickly became an international best-seller and has been translated into 50 languages (English in 1885 by Charles Tritten who later published the continuations "Heidi Grows Up" and "Heidi's Children"), sold 50 million copies, and inspired a whole series of films. Volume I was issued without the author's name on the title page but "Von der Verfasserin von 'Ein Blatt auf Vrony's Grab'" ("From the author of..."); volume II is titled "Heidi kann gebrauchen, was es gelernt hat" and was published as part V of "Geschichten für Kinder und auch für Solche, welche die Kinder lieb haben", this time under Spyri's name. Perhaps because of the fragile paper used, the first editions of the two parts of Heidi are scarce.

        Island Life: Or, The Phenomena and Causes of Insular Faunas and Floras, Including a Revision and Attempted Solution of the Problem of Geological Climates

      London: Macmillan and Co, 1880. First Edition. Cloth. Very good +. xvii, [3], 526 p. 24 cm. Frontispiece in partial colour, as well as 25 other maps and diagrams in b&w or sepia. Green cloth hardcover with gold and black impressing. Spine ends a little softened, corners bumped, hinges repaired internally, small label at top of front pastedown. Occasional foxing or staining. A complete book in its original binding. Alfred Russel Wallace (1823 – 1913) was a British naturalist, explorer, geographer, and biologist, known for independently conceiving, apart from Darwin, the theory of evolution through natural selection. Wallace did extensive fieldwork, first in the Amazon River basin and then in the Malay Archipelago, where he identified the faunal divide now termed the Wallace Line. Island Life has long been considered one of his most important works. In it he studies the influence of the glacial epochs on the distribution patterns of organisms and the characteristics of island biogeography. The book includes history's first theory of continental glaciation based on a combination of geographical and astronomical causes, a discussion of island classification, and a survey of worldwide island faunas and floras. Anticipating our present concern with both endangered species and vanishing environments, Wallace's ecological studies helped substantiate evolution.

        Attrib. Ernest Albert Waterlow RA PRWS (1850-1919) - 1880 Oil,.

      1880 - Attrib. Ernest Albert Waterlow RA PRWS (1850-1919) - Original 1880 Oil. A beautiful and very well executed woodland landscape scene with figures and dogs, excellently presented in a fantastic period gilt frame with acanthus leaf detail to the corners and scrolling scalloped detail. Monogrammed "EAW" and dated in red to the lower right. We have attributed this painting to Ernest Albert Waterlow RA PRWS (1850-1919) because we believe the monogram to be him after looking at other comparisons, and there are significant similarities in the handling of the paint and the style used. However, we do not have any provenance for this painting, thus we cannot list it as by Waterlow with absolute certainty. Signed and dated. On canvas. Condition is typical for a painting of this age, with some areas of light surface dirt and discolouration to the varnish, some fine passages of old craquelure, but the paint layer is stable. There are a few tiny areas of paint loss to the lower right near the signature. Inspection under UV light shows an area of restoration to the centre of the trees, with a repair patch to the reverse of the canvas. The frame has some small areas of loss to the decoration, mainly on the back edge. Size: Large (30-60cm) Framed: Yes Style: Realism Weight: 9000.00g [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Les 50 planches chromolithographiées sont précédées d'un texte de Hiltl, illustré par Menzel, Burger et Lüders, donnant un panégyrique historique de l'armée prusienne, depuis ses débuts jusqu'à la guerre franco-prussienne, sans oublier la période faste de Frédéric II. Les planches légendées en allemand et signées par Schindler, représentent un vaste défilé de casques à pointes et uniformes de l'armée prussienne, illustrant d'abord le roi Guillaume, le Kronprintz et son état major avant de figurer les différents régiments et unités de la garde. La plupart des soldats et officiers sont représentés au combat, ou dans leur cadre militaire, avec un véritable souci du détail et de la couleur. La collation est conforme à la table. Schindler semble avoir déja publié une suite de planches sur l'armée dès 1865. Cette collection est sans aucun doute la plus belle et la plus aboutie. Colas, 1448 et 2663. Lipperheide, 2186. Hiler, 721. Cat. Glasser, 479. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Kitab al-Muhammadiyah.

      Istanbul: Mehmet Riza Efendi Tash Destgah, 1298 AH/1880-1 CE - Quarto (275 x 200 mm), pp. 7, 4, 478. Contemporary Turkish goatskin, rebacked at an early date with black roan, covers elaborately gilt with fillet borders enclosing strapwork roll with floral infill, an inner vermiculate roll linking floral cornerpieces, and a large doubled arabesque device in blind to centre, gilt-tooled fore-edge flap with English comb-marbled paper verso, pink endpapers. Purple ink stamp, "C. E. S. Palmer, H. B. M. Consul" to opening page (see below), together with a further ownership ink stamp in Ottoman, an effaced Ottoman inscription, and a partial reproduction of the tughra. Extremities slightly rubbed, a few superficial worm-tracks to boards, contents browned, occasional nicks and chips to page-edges, sporadic foxing and marking, a number of vignettes sometime coloured in by hand with a purple pencil, closed tear to upper outer corner of pp. 3/4 of the main text and an extensive closed tear to pp. 165/6, both partially repaired with all the text intact, old repair to terminal licence leaf. In good condition, complete with the terminal licence leaf. Lithographed throughout. Text in double column, framed, floral section headings; tughra of Sultan Abdul Hamid II and bookseller's advertisement printed in gilt (as issued) to opening page, pp. 2-3 (opening spread of main text) also printed in gilt with floral 'unwan; numerous vignettes to the text depicting relics and holy sites, including a series of large vignettes of the 8 gates of heaven (pp. 350-7), 8 full-page illustrations including 2 cosmographic diagrams and depictions of the Prophet's relics (2 illustrations, pp. 215 and 230), Hell (2 illustrations, pp. 280-1), the liwa' al-hamd (p. 275), and Judgement Day (p. 293). Uncommon Istanbul imprint of this popular Turkish translation of the Magharib al-Zaman (Sunsets of Time), a devotional work on the Prophet Muhammad, translated from the original Arabic by the author, Ottoman Sufi poet Yazicioglu Mehmet (d. 1491; his name means "son of the scribe"). Mehmet, a native of the Gallipoli peninsula, was a follower of Haci Bayram-i Veli (1352-1430) and influenced by the writings of Andalusian mystic Ibn 'Arabi, whose Fusus al-Hikam he translated into Turkish. The Muhammadiyah covers Muhammad's biography, various aspects of Muslim devotion, and eschatological matters, including Gog and Magog, the Sun rising in the west, and the Day of Resurrection; Mehmet is notably preoccupied with the eschatological role of Jesus and of the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople in 1453. The earliest edition traced was printed in 1842 at Istanbul's Military Press ('Askeri Tab'hane). The book appears to have gone through numerous editions with various Istanbul printers throughout the 19th century, but surviving examples are uncommon, with 12 copies traced in libraries world-wide, of which 6 represent printings earlier than our copy. This copy belonged to British diplomat Charles Palmer, who as vice consul at Çanakkale during the build-up to the Great War filed numerous reports for Naval Intelligence on German and Ottoman mobilisation; when war began he was drafted into the Royal Navy and served on the staff of John de Robeck, commander of the Allied fleet in the Dardanelles. He is a major figure in 36 Days, a recent reappraisal of the Gallipoli landings by Australian military historian Hugh Doland (2010).

        IN MEMORIAM

      London: [Printed by Charles Whittingham at the Chiswick Press for] C. Kegan Paul & Co, 1880. No. 39 OF 50 LARGE PAPER COPIES, signed by the printer. This is a famous poet's most famous poem, beautifully printed and offered here in a very well-preserved, exuberantly decorated binding. First published in 1850, the present elegy is a tribute to Tennyson's college friend, Arthur Henry Hallam (1811-33), son of the famous historian Henry Hallam (1777-1859). Tennyson's first verses had been published before he was 20, but after Hallam's death, he published nothing for nine years, although all the while he was working on this poem, the product of protracted meditation. Written in rhyming quatrains, the poem moves from grief and doubt to certainty that the universe is purposeful. It was a sensational best-seller, striking a deep note of resonance with Victorian readers and the queen herself, who told the poet that "Next to the Bible, 'In Memoriam' is my comfort." Thomson says that the work "has been discussed from every point of view--proof of the profound influence it exercised over English thought for half a century." The work had major repercussions in Tennyson's professional and personal lives. It inspired Prince Albert, consort of Queen Victoria, to petition that its author be named Poet Laureate of the realm, to succeed the recently deceased Wordsworth. And it left Tennyson financially secure enough to enter the married life, a step that had been delayed for 10 years for pecuniary reasons. Our Large Paper Copy has margins occupying more than twice as much area as the text and is printed with Whittingham's usual excellence on thick, creamy paper. There is a hint of the Moorish in the intricately gilt binding, which sports the exhibition stamp that one invariably sees on especially fine work from the Zaehnsdorf workshop.. 204 x 131 mm. (8 x 5 1/4"). 1 p.l. (limitation), 281, [1] pp. No. 39 OF 50 LARGE PAPER COPIES, signed by the printer. VERY ATTRACTIVE CITRON CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT, BY ZAEHNSDORF (stamp-signed on front doublure and with the firm's stamp on rear free endleaf), covers with mitered gilt frame enclosing large cornerpieces filled with swirling vines of azured gilt, the whole around an ovoid central panel featuring a gilt arabesque of delicate interlacing, flat spine tooled with curling azured gilt vines, gilt titling, BURGUNDY POLISHED CALF DOUBLURES tooled with a gilt strapwork design similar to the covers and framed by densely gilt turn-ins incorporating still more swirling vines, burgundy watered silk endleaves with gilt fleuron at corners, top edge gilt. With engraved frontispiece portrait. A Large Paper Copy. Spine slightly and evenly sun-darkened, a hint of rubbing along bottom edge, otherwise VERY FINE, the binding lustrous and scarcely worn, and the text clean, fresh, and bright, with immense margins. This is a famous poet's most famous poem, beautifully printed and offered here in a very well-preserved, exuberantly decorated binding.
