        Lilium elegans, var. incomparabile, var. Alice Wilson

      London 1880 - Henry John Elwes (1846-1922) was a British botanist, naturalist and author, celebrated for his travels throughout Asia, including the Himalayan Mountains, with the Geographical Section of the British Association and noted for his collection of lily specimens. In 1880 Elwes published a spectacular collection of prints depicting various species of one of the world's favorite flowers, the lily. The “Monograph of the Genus Lilium” is the result of a collaborative effort, the organization and text by Elwes and the images by renowned botanical illustrator Walter Hood Fitch. Although Fitch's drawings for Elwes' “Genus Lilium” were the last great works of his career, in his lifetime, Fitch produced nearly 10,000 illustrations. This hand-colored folio size lithograph,Lilium elegans, var. incomparabile, var. Alice Wilson, measures 21.75” x 15” and is in mint condition. This lily is richly colored with a vibrant green stem and full leaves and large red and yellow flowers. The blooming flowers are expertly detailed and naturalistically rendered on this superb lithograph.

      Mentor, Oh. June 26, 1880. - [1]p., plus integral blank. Old folds. Very minor soiling. Near fine. Letter written by President Elect James Garfield to Judge W.A. Richardson, thanking Richardson for his congratulations upon the occasion of Garfield's election to the presidency. He writes: "My dear judge, Yours of the 10th inst. was found awaiting me at Washington but I have not been able to acknowledge it until now. Accept my thanks for your congratulations and suggestions. As I am gratified by the former I shall hope to profit by the latter." Unfortunately, Garfield's term was short- lived, as he was shot less than four months into his term on, July 2, 1881. He died two and a half months later.

        Ansichten von Calcutta. [Views of Calcutta]

      Calcutta, c.1880 - Quarto. Black cloth portfolio (325 × 248 mm), cloth from the upper panel of the original contemporary folder, with title as above gilt, mounted. Mounts slightly rippled and with occasional foxing, the prints largely clear and sharp. 31 albumen prints on card with neatly pencilled captions in German. Mounts 318 × 240 mm, prints full to half plate size. Fascinating collection of images of Calcutta around 1880, seemingly the work of a technically highly competent amateur. The images divide more or less in half, one part featuring the monuments and buildings of the European occupation of the city; the other concentrating on native life and "types." The sights included in the first grouping include the Museum completed in 1875, now the Indian Museum, showing cows grazing amongst the building materials scattered in the foreground; the General Post Office; the Governor's House and the statue of Sir John Lawrence; a view of the Maidan with the equestrian statue of Lord Hardinge and the Ochterlony Monument; a series of views of Eden Park including the band-stand and the Burmese pagoda; 5 images of the Zoological Gardens, opened 1876, with attractive views of the pheasant house and the tiger enclosure; and two views of the Hooghly, one of shipping in the harbour with a forest of masts, the other of the pontoon bridge at Howrah which was still in use in 1943. In the panoramic view of Chowringhee - "Europaeischer Straße" - the sign of Bourne and Shepherd's photographic studio can be easily picked out. The thirteen images of the indigenous people include excellent views of village life - native shops, an ox-waggon, a toddy-gatherer - native craft on the Hooghly, a superb study of a palanquin and its carriers at rest, and a fine image of a juggernauth lowering over a village street. Just one the prints has any form of naming or numbering on the plate - Bootleute am Flue Hooghly, which has "Alborne [or Osborne] 118" in the negative in the middle of the image - the rest are without any studio serial or name stamp, although three of the "types", male and female water-carriers and the barber, do have much in common with studio productions for the tourist market. The rest show considerable technical ability in the exposure and development, but perhaps lack the compositional skills that might be expected of a professional, some of the wider views having a greater expanse of foreground, with fewer figures to add interest, than would generally be found in the studio-generated images of the period. It seems most likely that these are the work of a keen amateur, and are therefore unlikely to be found elsewhere. There is a pencilled inscription, "Emil Kohler 3 Rue Leopold, Bruxelles," inside the upper panel of the portfolio, in the same hand as the captioning on the mounts.

        John Inglesant; A Romance.

      Privately printed. Cornish Brothers. Birmingham First edition 1880 - pp. (viii), (9)-577, (i) blank. Original vellum with red lettering, top edge gilt, uncut, small tear at the head of the spine and a couple of nicks at the foot, paste-downs foxed, book-plate of ROBERT C. R. JORDAN M.D. and a presentation inscription to him from 'the author', a good copy. *Privately printed by Shorthouse in an edition of 100 copies, 75 for friends and 25 for sale. Then issued in 1881 in a trade edition which became hugely popular, rapidly selling 9,000 copies in the first year and 80,000 copies overall. SHORTHOUSE (1834-1903) was born and died in Birmingham, the eldest son of Joseph Shorthouse and his wife, Mary Ann, both of whom belonged to the Society of Friends. Joseph had inherited a chemical works and at sixteen, his son went into this family business. He had, however, been much attracted to literary work, reading widely, and writing for the Friends' Essay Society. An epileptic attack in 1862 left him invalided, and with time and resources from his family business, he started to write a Philosophical Romance, in 1866, much influenced by Ruskin, the Pre-Raphaelites and his conception of seventeenth-century Anglicanism. He worked at this novel for ten years, finishing in 1876 but failing to generate any commercial enthusiasm. It lay dormant until 1880 and was published privately in Birmingham in that year. A copy was shown to Mrs. Humphry Ward who, considerably impressed, passed it to the publisher Alexander Macmillan. He was immediately keen to publish and it came out in a trade 2-decker in 1881, to a clamorous reception. It struck all the right notes for the times - romantic, sermonising, philosophical and devoid of humour, it delighted a wide audience including Thomas Henry Huxley and Philip Gosse, Cardinal Manning and Gladstone and Charlotte Yonge. The book acquired a cult status, the first novel of a mystic drawn from the Birmingham business-industrial class. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Fool's Errand, by One of the Fools; The Famous Romance of American History. New, Enlarged, and Illustrated Edition. To which is Added, by the Same Author, Part II. The Invisible Empire: A Concise Review of the Epoch on Which the Tale is Based

      New York: Fords, Howard, & Hulbert 1880 - 8vo., contemporary quarter morocco and marble boards lettered in gilt; with minor rubbing to extremities. Enlarged, illustrated "testimonial" edition. BAL 20348. A major presentation copy, inscribed: "Gen. Chester A. Arthur - Dear Sir: Allow me to present you this volume in testimony of my high esteem. Respectfully, A. W. Tourgée, Aug. 26th/80," on the front endpaper; with Arthur's library bookplate on the front pastedown ---- Throughout his long career, Tourgée advocated equal rights for African Americans. Born in Ohio, and educated at the University of Rochester, he enlisted in the Union army and saw action at Bull Run and Chickamauga. After the Civil War, Tourgée moved to North Carolina, where he became involved in Reconstruction politics. During his tenure as a Supreme Court judge, Tourgée effectively challenged the Ku Klux Klan. His appeals to Congress revealing the extent of white supremacist violence, helped speed passage of laws authorizing the use of federal troops against the Klan. After 1877, he returned to the North, where he expressed disappointment over the ultimate failure of Reconstruction in his autobiographical novel, “A Fool’s Errand.” Published anonymously in November 1879, “A Fool’s Errand” sold more than forty thousand copies within six months. Like Harriet Beecher Stowe’s fictional exposé on the plight of African Americans, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” Tourgée’s 361-page muckraking novel achieved financial success and critical acclaim as a classic of unflinching social commentary. Encouraged by the accolades accorded “A Fool’s Errand,” Tourgée produced a second edition of the work, supplemented by 136 pages of documentary evidence based upon public records and eyewitness accounts. The testimonies regarding the motives, organization, activities, and victims of the Ku Klux Klan in the new section of “A Fool’s Errand,” entitled “The Invisible Empire,” provoked further public outrage over human rights violations. The testimonial edition of “A Fool’s Errand” was published less than two weeks before the Republican National Convention convened in early June 1880. It appeared with Tourgée’s name on the title page. The surprise disclosure and “Invisible Empire” supplement served to further heighten interest in the bestseller and perhaps influence the convention’s unprecedented endorsement of federal government-supported public education, an issue that Tourgée had long advocated. After Grant’s third-term nomination proved unsuccessful, Tourgée backed the convention’s compromise nominee James Abram Garfield, an acquaintance since childhood, and running mate Chester A. Arthur, the former collector of the Port of New York and lawyer, who had earlier defended the civil rights of free blacks and fugitive slaves. Months after the Republican Convention, Tourgée presented Arthur with this copy of the testimonial edition of “A Fool’s Errand,” "in testimony of my high esteem.” An historically significant copy of the most important fictional exposé on Reconstruction with a most distinguished provenance [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

I and III blocked with double blind-ruled borders, vol.

The Trumpet-Major was first published serially in Good Words, in the issues running from January to December 1880; Purdy notes that 'several chapters were retitled before the novel was published in book form, and a few scattered passages were deleted', and further quotes Hardy's recollections of demands for changes to the text for serial publication; 1,000 sets in late 1880. The bindings of vols. I and III of this set are Sadleir variant A (with spine imprint 'Smith Elder & Co'), and vol. II is variant B with a triple-rule border on the lower board.

Although there is no getting away from the fact that this is an ex-circulating-library copy, it is, in the scheme of things, not all that bad, respectable even. The binding here is Purdey’s primary binding, variant with the period after Smith. Elder & Co. beneath the superscript ‘o’, as opposed to a dash. Purdy conjectures that this might represent the second binding order of 150 copies. Sadleir’s Variant A. (Purdy pp.31-35; Sadleir 1115)

        Songs of Springtide

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1880. First edition. 8vo. 135, [32, ads, dated April. 1880] pp. Original blue cloth. A very good copy . Inscribed "To the Rev. Alexander B. Grosart with the best reagrds of/Algernon Swinburne/ May 1880." "Grosart, Alexander Balloch (1827-1899), literary scholar and theologian...Grosart's reputation was as a great Elizabethan and Jacobean scholar. He reprinted thirty-nine volumes under the general title of the Fuller Worthies Library (1868-76), including authors such as Donne, Herbert, and Crashaw. This was followed by eighteen volumes of another series entitled Occasional Issues of Unique and very Rare Books (1875-83), which was privately printed. This series, like the others, included a list of the subscribers to each volume, alphabetically and democratically arranged, and found among these lists were such well-known names as Edmund Gosse, George Saintsbury, A. C. Swinburne, H. H. Furness, F. S. Palgrave, and Henry Morley....Grosart reprinted and edited volumes for the Chetham Society, for the Roxburghe Club, and for the Camden Society, in addition to a number of volumes not associated with any series or society. One estimate puts the total number of volumes he reprinted and/or edited at 300. He also added to his editions of the works of the puritan divines a small number of religious publications. And he was himself the author of hymns and religious poems which were collected and published in 1890 under the title Songs of the Day and Night, or, Three Centuries of Original Hymns. Possibly his proudest moment was when he was thanked by Tennyson for his dedication to the poet of his edition of Spenser (Letters of ... Tennyson, 3.298, 301-3)." (DNB)

He devised the artificial velum of soft rubber for cleft palate, advocated abrupt repositioning of the mandible by putting in a bite plane, and recommended the head-chin cap. He invented the first portable gas blowpipe for dentists&#39; use, and was a founder of the New York College of Dentistry, one of the three oldest still in existence today.</p><p>The final pages of Kingsley&#39;s textbook are devoted to the aesthetics of dentistry, incuding a section titled "Experiments in Remodelling a Face," and a study of the anatomy and physiology of expression based on Charles Bell&#39;s classic, with illustrations drawn from it.

        Fleurs, fruits et feuillages choisis de la flore et de la pomone de l&#39; Ile de Java peints d&#39;après nature par Madame Berthe Hoola van Nooten. Troisieme edition

      Brussels and Leipzig: Librairie Européenne C. Muquardt, 1880. Folio. Expertly bound to style in red half morocco over contemporary light green glazed paper-covered boards, titled in gilt on flat spine Third, and improved edition of this magnificent display of spectacular Javanese fruits and flowers, their bright colours ideally suited to the then new technique of chromolithography. &#39;Europeans who beheld these plants for the first time... could not but have been moved to wonder and amazement&#39; ("Oak Spring Flora") Berthe Hoola van Nooten (1840-1885), a latter-day Maria Sibylla Merian, produced the present work as a heroic response to circumstances which left her on Java, a widow in her early twenties with a family to support and little money, certainly not enough to pay for her family&#39;s passage home to Belgium. &#39;Aware of the vogue in Europe for exotic flora, she decided to take advantage of her enforced exile and put to use the skill at flower painting that she had no doubt acquired as a girl. Thus she prepared forty magnificent plates for Fleurs, fruits et feuillages choisis de l&#39;Ile de Java ... [van Nooten] was clearly a more than competent artist, for the splendid tropical plants, with their lush foliage, vividly coloured flowers and exotic fruit, have been depicted with great skill. She managed to accentuate the splendour of each species by adopting a style that combined great precision and clarity with a touch of neo-Baroque exuberance, revelling in the rich forms and colours of the tropics. The reader&#39;s eye is immediately captured by the dark leaves, shown furled or crumpled or partly nibbled away by insects, the delicately rendered details of the follicles and seeds, and the heavy clusters of flowers that cascade down the page. The excellent reproduction of the artist&#39;s drawings in the form of chromolithographs lends an added tactility to these striking images&#39; ( Oak Spring Flora ) The work consists of a lithographed dedication (in rhyme) to the Queen of the Netherlands. This is followed by a preface in which the author hints at the tragic personal circumstances which led her to seek a publisher for the work, and the forty plates, each of which is accompanied by detailed text in French and English giving a description as well as occasional information on the plants&#39; culinary, medical, religious and other uses. The plates depict a mixture of indigenous, naturalised and introduced plants and include shrubs, flowering trees and, perhaps the most striking of all, 16 portraits of plants with edible fruits: pomelo, rambutan, mangosteen, custard-apple, bread-fruit, mango, bananas, star-fruit and papaya amongst others. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 103; Landwehr 80; Nissen BBI 93; Oak Spring Flora 87; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 3025. (22 x 15 1/4 inches). Half-title, title, dedication to the Queen of the Netherlands and foreword in French, parallel text in French and English. 40 chromolithographed plates by P. Depannemaeker after Hoola van Nooten.

        The Seven Lamps of Architecture

      Orpington, Kent: George Allen,, 1880. With illustrations, drawn by the author. New edition. Folio. Original blue-grey printed boards, printed spine label, edges uncut and partly unopened. Protected in a good quality tan morocco-backed folding case, spine lettered gilt. 14 tissue-guarded steel-engraved plates by Ruskin. Joints a little chipped in places, spine toned and finger-marked, internally fine. On its first publication in May 1849, The Seven Lamps of Architecture was the first of Ruskin&#39;s works to carry his name, and the first to be illustrated. It was to prove a key work in the Gothic revival, notably encouraging the use of Gothic in secular buildings. Ruskin&#39;s intervention was theoretical more than practical: the "lamps" of architecture were moral categories &#150; sacrifice, truth, power, beauty, life, memory, and obedience &#150; abstract notions in themselves, but which for Ruskin were manifested in particular Gothic buildings in Italy and northern France.

Il ibro fu fortemente criticato nella sua epoca per l'aiuto che dava al mantenimento di una cultura pagana. Durán parlava correntemente la lingua azteca e riuscì ad utilizzare per il suo lavoro i racconti e i codici pittorici della popolazione locale oltre ai lavori dei religiosi suoi predecessori. La sua natura empatica gli permise di guadagnare la fiducia di molti nativi che normalmente non avrebbero condiviso le loro storie con gli europei, e fu così in grado di documentare numerosi racconti e leggende precedentemente sconosciuti, rendendo unico il suo lavoro.

        Lord Stanley engraving Sir Frederick Arthur, 1st Baron Stanley of Preston, 16th Earl of Derby (Lord Stanley of Preston) (1841-1908)

      published by Morris & Co. 392 Strand W.C. [1880], London - TRULY RARE. WE CAN FIND NO OTHER COPIES OF THIS ENGRAVING. No date but probably circa 1880 when he would be about 39 years old. [Frederick Arthur Stanley, 16th Earl of Derby]"Lord Stanley" engraving London published by Morris & Co. 392 Strand W.C. Drawn by C.W. Walton. Paper size is 17 1/2îî x 23 5/8î. Plate mark size is 10 1/2î x 13î. Image size is 5î x 7î.Signature Imprint: Lord Stanley ( [facsimile signature] ) Stanley family motto, "Sans Changer" or without changing. Some soiling overall on paper (but not on actual image) and top left corner bent and dark marks. Bottom left corner with darker mark and small bent corner. Overall condition is good+. In 1892, this Lord Stanley, 16th Earl of Derby gave a treasured national icon ó the Stanley Cup to symbolize hockey Championship in Canada. It is the same Stanley Cup the National Hockey League competes for each year now. He was the 6th Governor General of Canada., National Portrait Gallery, London has only one similar engraving of Lord Stanley where he is older and their different Lord Stanley engraving is printed later. , ìThere are 13 portrait lithographs by the artist (Walton) in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London. Many of the works he produced were of contemporary figures, including Francis Thomas de Grey Cowper, Seventh Earl Cowper (1834 -1905), who became Lord Lieutenant of Ireland and Charlotte Anne Montagu-Douglas-Scott (nÈe Thynne), Duchess of Buccleuch (1811-1895), who served as Mistress of the Robes to Queen Victoria. Some of Waltonís portraits were used to illustrate books. It seems that many of his earlier works were published by the firm of Morris & Co., 392 Strand, but he later published his own works from 103, Shaftesbury Avenue. Interestingly, a lithograph by Walton of Philip William Skynner Miles in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery was published by ëMorris, Walton & Coí, so it seems he may have briefly been in partnership with Morris & Co.î quoted from Philippa Martin, Curator, Information and Research (Historical) UK Government Art Collection [Attributes: First Edition]
