Inscribed on the first blank of both volumes: "Seiner koeniglichen Hoheit Herzog Carl Theodor in Bayern. In tiefster Ehrfurcht überreicht von Emil Schlagintweit. Zweibrücken, den 16 Januar/18 November 1881". Emil [Von] Schlagintweit (1835-1904) was a German scholar who in this work collected the travel notes of his brothers, the explorers Hermann (1826-1882), Adolf (1829-1857), Eduard (1831-1866), and Robert (1833-1885), who travelled throughout India and adjacent countries, in particular Nepal and Tibet. Emil remained in Germany, but it is thanks to him that the observations made by his brothers were compiled and published. The work is richly illustrated with scenes of daily life, and views of cities and old or important buildings. Some light spotting, mainly in the margins of volume 1, otherwise a fine set..

        A PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM

      [Berlin and New York: Maether & Co.], 1880. n. Hardcover. 305 x 229 mm (12 x 9"). Contemporary burgundy pebble-grain morocco, lower board framed by gilt and black rules, UPPER BOARD MADE OF BEVELLED POLISHED ALABASTER WITH ONLAID WREATH OF COLORED GLASS DAISIES and leaves accented with tiny blue forget-me-nots, (barely visible) initials "J R" etched at the center of the oval formed by the flowers, brass cornerpieces and catch, large decorative brass clasp with key, raised bands flanked by multiple gilt rules, lower board with gilt turn-ins, pale blue watered silk endleaves, all edges gilt. In the original (somewhat soiled and worn) gray pebbled cloth box with hook and eye closures. With 25 double-sided heavy card leaves, many with chromolithographed decoration, each with gilt-bordered frames for inserting photographs, the majority containing family photo portraits in sepia tint, a few of the photographs gently hand-colored. A couple of daisies missing their yellow centers, small dampstain inside the front cover, occasional minor spotting to chromolithograph frames or photographs, otherwise an excellent specimen of a volume that, as a heavy object inviting avid use, would normally be found today as wreckage. This is a charming and substantial relic of Victoriana with fine alabaster, glass, and brass work that remains, 150 years later, as gay and inviting on the outside as it is sober and dignified on the inside. The women in the photographs are usually gripped in high-buttoned black taffeta, and the bushy-whiskered men mostly look like Henrik Ibsen, so one could be inclined to surmise that the owners who used this album were continental, perhaps even Scandinavian; furthermore, the style of the lower board is Germanic, as is the glass and brass work. And yet the portraits were taken by photographers located in London, Hastings, and Brighton, as identified on the rear of the images. It is possible that Maether & Co., the Berlin (and New York) printer and publisher made the album, but then exported it (or sold it to a buyer who moved) to London. In any case, the photographs provide a period glimpse of upper-class life--for this was a very costly album to manufacture--with details of men's, women's, and children's fashions, as well as some home furnishings and occasionally an expensive objet d'art that rated a devoted photographic record. That the album has survived in such excellent condition is a reflection of how important it was to its owners and how smart they were to retain its original container.

        Deutsche Volkstrachten: Original Zeichnunben Mit Erklarendem Text

      Berlin: J. G. Bach's Verlag, 1880. Second Edition. Cloth Bound. Very Good Plus. Kreschmer, Albert. Folio - over 12. Book. Circa 1880s, second, enlarged edition, 166 pp., with 90 chromolithographs, each measuring 12.5 by 10 inches. Costumes, with genre settings from German, Austrian, Tyrolean provinces (this includes area now part of Italy, in the Dolomites or Alto Adige). Chromos are especially brilliant, and they are very clean and crisp in this copy. Contemporary blue boards have some soilage. Otherwise binding in great shape. Because of condition of plates, the main event, and the text, I consider this near fine. The same plates, when disbound and unframed, sell for about $100 each.

        Dorothy: A Poem

      Autograph Manuscript. 78 folio leaves, written on the rectos only. Small tears at the extremities, some smudges, a few pencil corrections, mostly editorial in nature, near fine, housed in a cloth chemise and slipcase. Dated in pencil 14 March 1880. Laid in is a Typed Letter Signed from the author's great nephew, A.N.L. Munby, the compiler of the monumental catalog of the fantastic Sir Thomas Phillipps collection of manuscripts, dated in 1956 to an American bookseller, thanking the bookseller for informing him that he has three of Phillipps's manuscripts, which he will add to his lists, expressing interest that the dealer has his great-uncle's manuscript, and mentioning that the rest of A.J. Munby's manuscripts are at Trinity College in Cambridge. The author's finished and final draft of this epic poem about a working woman, a subject he apparently found fascinating, as he clandestinely married a maidservant while he continually interviewed working women. His diaries of these interviews are generally considered of equal or even more lasting value than his poetry. .

        THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES BY MEANS OF NATURAL SELECTION, OR THE PRESERVATION OF FAVOURED RACES IN THE STRUGGLE FOR LIFE.

      London, John Murray, 1880.SIXTH EDITION 1880 with additions and corrections to 1872, (twenty - second thousand). 8vo, approximately 195 x 125 mm, 7½ x 5 inches, folding chart, xxi pages of prelims, 458 pages including index, original publisher's green cloth, gilt lettering and decoration to spine, blind - stamped decorative borders to covers, original mid brown endpapers. Binding slightly rubbed, slight wear to head and tail of spine, gilt a touch rubbed at tail of spine, very neat name and date 1906 to top of half - title, occasional very small pale fox spot or small pale stain, mainly to margins. A very good clean tight copy. See R. B. Freeman, The Works of Charles Darwin, page 79 - 81 and page 86 reference 412. This is a reprint of the edition of 1876 which contained the final text as Darwin left it and which contained small differences in text from the edition of 1872.

        THE BOKE NAMED THE GOUERNOUR DEUISED BY SIR THOMAS ELYOT, KNIGHT

      C. Kegan Paul, London 1880 - Edited from the First Edition of 1531 by Henry Herbert Stephen Croft. Two volumes. cxcviii, 352p; x, 660p. Illustrated with frontispieces of Sir Thomas and Lady Elyot. Bound by Frost in half brown crushed morocco with cloth sides and marbled endpapers, t.e.g., the spines with gilt titles and panel ornaments. This wotk is known chiefly as the first work on education in English. While it aimed at the education of princes, it was used by the upper classes as a model."The twofold object of this work was 'to instruct men in such virtues as shall be expedient for them, which shall have authority in a weal public, and to educate those youths that hereafter may be deemed worthy to be governors." (DNB Vol. IV, p. 765).'"Elyot received little reward for his services to the state, but his scholarship and his books were held in high esteem by his contemporaries. The Boke named the Governour was printed by Thomas Berthelet (1531, 1534, 1536, 1544, etc.). It is a treatise on moral philosophy, intended to direct the education of those destined to fill high positions, and to inculcate those moral principles which alone could fit them for the performance of their duties. The subject was a favourite one in the 16th century, and the book, which contained many citations from classical authors, was very popular. Elyot expressly acknowledges his obligations to Erasmus's Institutio Principis Christiani but he makes no reference to the De regno et regis institutione of Francesco Patrizzi (d. 1494), bishop of Gaeta, on which his work was undoubtedly modelled [sic]." (Wikipedia). Edited from the First Edition of 1531 by Henry Herbert Stephen Croft [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        "Sonnen-Wolken-Land" originales Ölgemälde auf Leinwand ca. 68x87cm; links unten signiert; um 1890 [Maße im dekorativen Rahmen 87x105cm.]

      . Ein eindrucksvolles Gemälde und Zeugnis dafür, daß die Orientierung der deutschen Malerei an der französischen niemals so tiefgreifend war wie zwischen 1880 und 1900. Mit seiner kühnen Malweise, der dramatischen Darstellung der Landschaft in kräftigem Kolorit wie Farbauftrag steht Fritz Baer hier ganz in der Tradition der größten Maler des Impressionismus. Kein van Gogh aber Impressionismus vom Feinsten zu einem mehr als moderaten Preis..

        Major General Charles George Gordon. C.B. R.E. Hero of Khartoum.

      Marlborough, Gould and Co. Publishers, London 1880 - London: Marlborough, Gould and Co. Publishers, ca. 1880. Lithograph, printed image ca. 49x32,5 cm (17x13 inches). Proof copies 5 s. each. Tears and minor losses on extremities, otherwise a very good wide margined lithograph. Large well executed lithograph portrait of Major-General Charles George Gordon, CB (1833-1885), known as Chinese Gordon, Gordon Pasha, and Gordon of Khartoum. "It may not be out of place to mention that by far the best portrait of General Gordon , to our mind, is a large lithograph published by Marlborough and Co., 52, old Bailey, London, and within reach of all purses" (General Gordon's life and letters // Littell's The Living Age. Fifth Series, Vol. 1. Boston, 1885. P. 465). "Major-General Charles George Gordon, was a British army officer and administrator. He made his military reputation in China, where he was placed in command of the "Ever Victorious Army", a force of Chinese soldiers led by European officers. In the early 1860s, Gordon and his men were instrumental in putting down the Taiping Rebellion, regularly defeating much larger forces. For these accomplishments, he was given the nickname "Chinese" Gordon and honours from both the Emperor of China and the British. He entered the service of the Khedive in 1873 (with British government approval) and later became the Governor-General of the Sudan, where he did much to suppress revolts and the slave trade. When a serious revolt broke out in the Sudan, led by a Muslim reformer and self-proclaimed Mahdi, Muhammad Ahmad, Gordon was sent to Khartoum with instructions to secure the evacuation of loyal soldiers and civilians, and depart with them. After evacuating about 2,500 British civilians he retained a smaller group of soldiers and non-military men. As an ardent Christian evangelist he was determined to stand up to the Mahdi, his Muslim nemesis. In the build up to battle the two leaders corresponded attempting to convert the other to their respective faiths, but neither would comply. Besieged by the Mahdi's forces, Gordon organized a city-wide defence lasting almost a year that gained him the admiration of the British public, though not the government, which had not wished to become involved (as Gordon had known before setting out). Only when public pressure to act had become too great was a relief force reluctantly sent. It arrived two days after the city had fallen and Gordon had been beheaded" (Wikipedia).
