        JAPANESE PHOTO ALBUM: 50 Hand-Colored Albumen Photographs.

      [Yokohama 1880's, Kusakabe]. Calico cloth album, silk ties, oblong format, 34.5 x 26.5 cm., 50 hand-colored photos, each 24 x 19 cm., some with lower corner captions in English,some usual and minor edge wear, solid very nice copy. S C A R C E *** *** THE PHOTOGRAPHER: Kusakabe Kimbei [1841-1934] was a well-known Japanese photographer, who served the foreign community in Yokohama. He created lovely photographic albums with scenery, studio images of posed Japanese men and women and a wide variety of other souvenir albums. His work was of a high quality and an interesting nature. Kusakabe was a very unique Japanese photographer who understood Western photographic principals, but stuck to his native Japanese style and tradition of capturing native Japanese subjects with great skill. Kusakabe likely apprenticed with both Beato and Stillfried as a photograph colorist. In 1885 he managed to acquire a number of Beato and Stillfried negatives which were reprinted and sold in his albums. Kusakabe being located on the main street in Yokohama had many foreign clients who purchased his albums. His landscapes captured what 19th century Japan was truly like. His portraits also reflect a "natural" beauty and quality not found in the work of other Japanese photographers of the time, even though many were posed. SUBJECT OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS: The album begins with a look at the traditional Japanese garden, country Ricksha, bamboo grove at Gojozakawa, street festival and Mikoshi, funeral procession, Kyoto river tea house, river boat with palanquins and other riders, country inn, Japanese Ryokan or hotel, some twenty young prostitutes pose for the camera in their best Kimono. Also a Geta or shoe store, pounding rice, curio store [antiques], flower excursion [young girls viewing the cherry blossoms], stunning girl in evening Kimono holding a lantern and large umbrella, 5 women preparing vegetables in the kitchen, Kago or palanquin carriers holding a woman, two Geisha's: one fan dances the other plays a Shamisen. A fan-maker, farmers threshing rice, Six Geisha's playing music, prostitutes on display in "cages." Trellis and wisteria, dinner party, four girls in a tea ceremony, fishmonger market, young girl poses in her best winter Kimono, ox cart, Tateba and water wheel, great Japanese Junk, small oar powered boat. A vegetable man [Yaoya] shows a vendor with two baskets full of various vegetables & large Daikon radishes, he wears a straw rain-coat and large hat a scan of which is on our site. This exact photograph is illustrated in C. Worswick: JAPAN PHOTOGRAPHS 1854-1905 onp.111. A very nice photograph of the three-storied prostitution quarters in Tokyo. A very similar view is also found in M. Winkel: SOUVENIRS FROM JAPAN, on p.121, # 116, which shows the same street & buildings from a slightly different angle, but with power poles. Ours is with out them, thus an earlier photograph. Picking shells at Negishi, Yokohama, N. Nogawa manufacturer of bronze ware Kioto, a lady artist paints a Kimono on a long board. Two children are taught their lessons by an elderly and bearded man. Five Japanese girls taking supper, old woman flower vendor, girl sleeping, three Japanese ladies sit beside the Hibachi & Tansu. A Japanese marriage ceremony. Lovely view of the interior of a large Tatami mat room and its Tokunoma and hanging scroll. Satake garden Mukojima, Tokyo. Four girls playing a game with a Kimono Obi while one strums the Biwa. Judicial HaraKiri or ritual suicide while two onlookers view as their colleague of the condemned prepares to behead him. Flower vendor. Paper carps or Koi-no-bori flags fly for May 5th on Boys Day festival, itinerant old man carries his heavy load. The last is a nice view of the Inland Sea. HAND COLORED ALBUMEN IMAGES: A very lovely work, with superbly executed images. All are strong, clear images, no fading, all albumen photos, nicely hand-colored in delicate pastel shades and hues. THE ALBUM: Each image is simply mounted by inserting into the double folded pages which have slits. Bound in the traditional Japanese style, oblong format. .

        The Gawler Handbook. A Record of the Rise and Progress of that important Town; to which are added Memoirs of McKinlay the Explorer and Dr Nott

      Adelaide, Goodfellow & Hele [almost certainly the Author - James Dally was convinced], 1880. Octavo, 182, 30 (advertisements) pages plus 6 lithographed plates (of farm machinery by James Martin & Co.) and 17 albumen paper carte-de-visite photographs individually mounted on tipped-in captioned leaves. Blind-decorated blue cloth lettered in gilt on the front cover; cloth slightly rubbed and bumped at the extremities, a little marked, and lightly sunned on the spine; some mounts lightly creased (a production flaw); a few trifling signs of use; a very good copy (but internally fine, with the photographs in superb condition). With the pictorial bookplate of J. Cluny Harkness (Federal President of the Chamber of Manufactures in the 1950s, according to Trove). Ferguson 11744; Holden 70. Holden's entry is more accurate and informative, although the photographs may vary slightly between copies. The photograph facing page 17 in this copy is of the 'Gawler Institute' (showing the Institute building and Town Hall), rather than 'Frankel's Hotel' as called for in Holden. These variations notwithstanding, two separate editions were produced: one in wrappers, with advertisements on the verso of the front cover and on both sides of the rear cover, without photographs (but with the lithographs not noted by Ferguson); the other in gilt-lettered cloth, without the cover advertisements, containing 17 mounted photographs plus the lithographs. Both contain 30 pages of advertisements at the rear. Rare in any state, and in our view, the version on offer is one of the more important and interesting photographically illustrated books produced in Australia. 'The handbook is illustrated with a number of views by Mr J. Taylor, the local photographic artist, representing the most important edifices and establishments in town' (Holden, quoting a contemporary review). The frontispiece is a portrait of John McKinlay (1819-1872); there are 14 pages devoted to him (he married a Gawler woman in the early 1850s and was based in the town until his death). Justice is not done to the other photographs in describing them prosaically as 'the most important edifices and establishments in town'. Without exception, signs of life and day-to-day activities flesh out the images, and most of the businesses - butcher shop, photographic studio, cordial factory, furnishing warehouse, music emporium - feature well-stocked windows or yards and numerous staff members or customers. Holden reproduces two interesting ones (including perhaps the best, the butcher shop, captioned merely 'Hodgson & Clements'), but there are wonderful vignettes in many others. Not least of these are the horse-drawn tram in front of the 'Commercial Bank' and the ornate hearse outside 'F. Fowler's Furnishing Warehouse'. While we are on the subject of death, one chapter stands out. Among those to be expected, say on 'Horticultural and Agricultural Progress. Gardens around Gawler', or 'The Humbug Society. Flam! Bam! Sham!', or 'The Streets - Number of Businesses - Description of Hotels', there is Chapter XI: 'The Neville and Adamson Tragedy'. Its thirteen pages describe in great detail the events surrounding the double suicide 'and its romantic accomplishment' of Neville and his partner Adamson. 'It is universally believed that Neville was the leading spirit in the suicide, and so strong was Adamson's affection, love, friendship, or whatever it may be termed, for his companion, that he consented to take that final leap in the dark in the wine cellar, with him to visit that "bourne whence none return"'.

        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 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. ***

Der niederl. und lateinische Text zweispältig gedruckt. Jan Swammerdam (1637-1680), niederländischer Naturforscher und gilt als Begründer der Präformationslehre (Evolutionslehre). 1658 beschrieb er als erster Mensch die von ihm unter dem Mikroskop entdeckten roten Blutkörperchen. Ab 1661 nahm er ein Medizin-Studium an der Universität Leiden auf, ging 1664 nach Paris, kehrte ein Jahr später zurück nach Leiden und Amsterdam und wurde 1667 zum Dr. med. promoviert. 1675 veröffenltichte er seine Abhandlungen zur Naturgeschichte der Insekten. Er erkannte, dass die Königin das einzige fortpflanzungsfähige Weibchen des Bienenvolkes ist und stellte fest, dass die Metamorphose der Insekten nichts anderes ist als Entfaltung und Wachstum bereits vorhandener Anlagen. Weitere wichtige Studien befassen sich mit dem Lebenszyklus der Frösche und mit dem Bau der weiblichen Geschlechtsorgane des Menschen."The Biblia Naturae is the finest collection of microscopical observations ever produced by one worker ... The book is consulted by naturalists to this day. Some of the figures have never been excelled ..." (Singer). The scarce original edition with Latin and Dutch text printed in double columns. "Despite a scientific career that lasted only a dozen years, Swammerdam was one of the oustanding comparative anatomists of the seventeenth century. His most remarkable work was in the field of insect anatomy, which he undertook in order to disprove still-current Aristotelian notions (which he opposed upon religious grounds) that insects lack internal anatomy, develop by metamorphosis (sudden and complete transformation) and arise from spontaneous generation. By refining his techniques of microdissection and injection to the point where he could use them on the smallest and most delicate anatomical parts, Swammerdam was able to illustrate for the first time the complex internal structures of insects, including their reproductive organs and to demonstrate the gradual development of an insect's adult form throughout all its larval stages. These observations are 'indubitable the foundation of our modern knowledge of the structure, metamorphosis and classification of insects' (Cole, p. 285). In addition Swammerdam performed valuable investigations of crustaceans, mollusks and frogs, and was the first to prove experimentally that muscles do not increase in bulk when contracted via nerve stimulation. "The 'Biblia naturae', Swammerdam's major work, was published fifty-five years after his death by Hermann Boerhave ... the fifty-three copperplates were prepared under Swammerdam's direction from his own drawings" (Haskell F. Norman Library of Science & Medicine, 2037)

        Experiences of a Colonist Forty Years Ago; A Journey from Port Phillip to South Australia in 1839 and A Voyage from Port Phillip to Adelaide in 1846. By an Old Hand

      Adelaide, J. Williams, Printer [for the Author], 1880 [second edition]/ 1879. Octavo, [viii], 84; 80; and 23 pages plus 3 albumen paper photographs of 5 drawings on 3 unnumbered leaves. Gilt- and blind-stamped blue cloth a little bumped and rubbed at the extremities, with minor wear to the corners; spine sunned, with a slightly lighter spot near the centre where a paper label (an old auction lot number) has been removed; front cover has some light stains on it where something has been spilt (removing some of the gilt from the top left-hand border); rear flyleaf removed, with offsetting to the final page; a very good copy (internally excellent). The particulars of the photographs match those given in Holden (where the discrepancy in the number of plates present as against listed is explained). The plates are of drawings by Hamilton; he contributed similar sketches to the published journals of Grey and Eyre. The first edition was not photographically illustrated. This copy is inscribed in ink on the front flyleaf 'From G. Hamilton to Capt Dashwood with the Author's best wishes, 22 Dec 1880'. George Frederick Dashwood (1806-1881) arrived in South Australia in the early 1840s; in 1843, he 'was appointed one of the four non-official nominees in South Australia's first Legislative Council.... From 1847 to 1852 he was commissioner of police' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). George Hamilton (1812-1883) succeeded him in that role in 1867, retiring the year before his death. He arrived in Adelaide in 1839 when he overlanded cattle along Charles Bonney's southern route. A most satisfying association copy, presented from one significant pioneer to another in the twilight of their lives. Ferguson 10184 (inadequately describing the plates); Holden 49.

        A Rare Bronze Sculpted Candlestick in the Form of a Jewish Financier.

      Vienna 1880 - Finely cast and chased in form of a Jewish financier with pronounced nose and Semitic features in elegant clothing, top hat, jacket with tails and pin-striped trousers, holding a document and standing on a globe. Base inscribed in German 'Hausse!' (Boom!). 15.2 cm high. Bronze. This figure illustrates the perception of Jewish predominance at the financial markets by sections of Austrian and German societies in the 19th Century. The figure is symbolic of the then widespread myth that Jewish Capitalists were seeking to dominate the world economy. The German inscription on the base of the base of this piece – 'hausse!' refers to the stock market boom that the Jewish financier supposedly enjoys. It may refer to a particular coup that a specific Jewish stockbroker, investor or merchant banker had enjoyed at the time. The figure is holding a document in its hand, possibly a bond or a share certificate. However, unlike some items of this genre this piece seems to have more humorous than malicious intent. In this period of Jewish assimilation in Europe it is interesting to note that the figure wears long sidecurls ('peyot') more commonly associated with Orthodox or Hassidic Jews – a suggested reminder of the Jewish traditional roots.

        Carte-lettre autographe signée à la Comtesse Potocka : «Votre conscience me préoccupe. Je m'efforcerai de bien la diriger.»

      1880 - - S.l [Paris] n.d. [décembre 1880-juillet 1884], 11,7x9 cm, en feuilles. - Carte-lettre autographe signée de Guy de Maupassant à la Comtesse Potocka, 19 lignes à l'encre noire, à en-tête « GM 83, rue Dulong ». Maupassant fait partie du cercle de soupirants de la Comtesse Potocka qu'elle a surnommé les « Macchabées ». L'auteur était très sollicité socialement et cela lui crée des problèmes d'emploi du temps : « Or, voici le cas [.] Legrand m'avait recommandé de ne pas m'engager [.] à ce dîner en m'annonçant une invitation de sa belle-sœur, invitation qui n'est pas venue. » Il décide de lever le doute en allant chez son ami Georges Legrand : « [.] prendre le vent. » Ami proche de Maupassant, c'est lui qui l'introduisit auprès de la Comtesse Potocka. L'auteur lui dédiera en 1884 la nouvelle Suicide, reprise dans le volume Les Sœurs Rondoli et qui avait auparavant été publiée dans la revue Le Gaulois. Maupassant semble plus inquiet d'aller chez Potocka qu'il a surnommé « présidente » et dont la « conscience [le] préoccupe. Je m'efforcerai de bien la diriger. » Il fait référence à la création de la « Société religieuse Coopérative sous la dénomination de Société Anonyme Anti-Soporifique pour la Récréation perpétuelle de la Comtesse Potocka ». Un des nombreux jeux qui avait lieu lors de soirée chez la Comtesse Potocka. Avant de la quitter, il lui réitère son admiration : « Je suis aux pieds de ma présidente ». .

        On the forms of logical proposition.

      Williams and Norgate. 1880. 8vo. Contemporary khaki cloth, gilt lettering to spine; pp. viii + 592 (Venn pp. 336 - 349); small paper library labels to spine, very good. Provenance: donation bookplate of Edward Seymer Thompson to Christ's College Cambridge to front pastedown, with college library inkstamp to title page and blindstamps to prelims, deaccession inkstamp to ffep. Thompson was a college lecturer in law who was known for his translation of Plato's Meno. Joint first edition of the announcement of the creation of the Venn diagram, in Mind, a quarterly review of psychology and philosophy, vol V, 1880. Published at the same time in the Philosophical Magazine as "On the diagrammatic and mechanical representation of propositions and reasonings". There is controversy over which is the true first edition, as each appeared in the July edition of its respective journal. John Venn (1834-1923) was an Anglican priest and mathematician who turned to serious maths having invented a cricket ball bowling machine of alarming accuracy. While working in Cambridge as a lecturer in logic and probability, he was drawn to the representation of logical propositions in overlapping circles, it seeming a natural approach to him. "The uses of these kinds of diagrams in logic were used before Venn - for example, by mathematician Gottfried Leibniz and Leonhard Euler - but Venn was the first to comprehensively study them and formalize and generalize their usage" (Pickover, The Math Book, 272). His diagrams have now become widely used in all areas of statistics, probability, logic and computer science. This volume of Mind also includes papers by Francis Galton on "Statistics of Mental Imagery", Watson on Kant and two authors on Herbert Spencer's ethics.

        Lettre autographe signée à la Comtesse Potocka : « Ce serait un déjeuner d'adieux que nous tâcherions de rendre aussi gai que possible ! »

      1880 - - S.l [Paris] s.d. [circa décembre 1880-juillet 1884], 10,2x13 cm, 3 pages sur feuillet double. - Lettre autographe signée de Guy de Maupassant à la Comtesse Potocka, 26 lignes à l'encre noire sur un papier à en-tête "GM 83, rue Dulong", enveloppe jointe. Maupassant se désole de ne pouvoir voir son amie la Comtesse : « Hélas, Madame, vous me désespérez ! Je viens de m'engager pour ce soir ! Et je ne puis maintenant me faire libre. » Il voudrait : « [.] pourtant bien vous voir une minute avant de partir. » L'auteur était en effet souvent en déplacement que ce soit pour des questions de santé ou de visites. Pour pouvoir saluer la Comtesse, il propose : « Si le Comte est revenu demain, ne pourrais-je vous demander de venir déjeuner avec lui dans un cabaret quelconque. » Le Comte Potocki était l'époux de la Comtesse Potocka. D'origine polonaise, il se fit naturaliser français en 1905. Lui et la Comtesse vivaient chacun de leur côté mais en bonne entente. Ainsi : « Ce serait un déjeuner d'adieux que nous tâcherions de rendre aussi gai que possible ! » C'est pourquoi il demande à la Comtesse : « Pour animer ce déjeuner peut-on inviter quelqu'un de vos amis ? » Maupassant craint que cette séparation soit trop douloureuse à la Comtesse : « Je crains que le retour ne vous rende morose. » Il finit sa missive en la remerciant : « Merci pour la médaille. Je suis, Madame, votre ami le plus dévoué. » [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Signed autograph letter from Guy de Maupassant to the Countess Potocka, 26 lines in black ink on a letterhead "GM 83, rue Dulong", envelope attached. Maupassant was sorry that he could not see his friend the Countess: " Alas, Madame, you despair me! I just signed up for tonight! And I can not now make myself free. He would like to: ". well see you a minute before you leave ." "The author was indeed often on the move whether it was for health or visits. In order to greet the Countess, he proposes: " If the Count has returned to-morrow, can I not ask you to come and have lunch with him in some cabaret?" Count Potocki was the husband of the Countess Potocka. Of Polish origin, he became naturalized French in 1905. He and the Countess lived on their own but in good agreement. Thus: " It would be a farewell breakfast that we would try to make as cheerful as possible! That is why he asks the Countess: " To animate this lunch, we can invite one of your friends." Maupassant was afraid that this separation might be too painful for the Comtesse: " I fear that the return will make you morose. He finished his letter by thanking her, " Thank you for the medal." I am, madam, your most devoted friend . " [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The different forms of flowers on plants of the same species [Unopened]

      London: John Murray, 1880. Second Edition of one of the scarcer Darwin titles, one of only 1,250 copies, with a new preface, in which Darwin states that "the text has been left as it originally appeared excepting that a few errors have been corrected." According to Freeman, "This is then the definitive text." 8vo: xvi,352,32(advertisements)pp, with 15 woodcuts in the text and 38 tables. Publisher's standard green pebbled cloth, covers paneled in blind, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, brown end papers. Inserted advertisements may be as late as January 1882, per Freeman. A Fine copy, completely unopened. Freeman 1280. Darwin recalled the writing of this title in his autobiography: "This book consists chiefly of the several papers on heterostyled flowers, originally published by the Linnean Society, corrected, with much new matter added, together with observations on some other cases in which the same plant bears two kinds of flowers. As before remarked, no little discovery of mine ever gave me so much pleasure as the making out the meaning of heterostyled flowers. The results of crossing such flowers in an illegitimate manner, I believe to be very important as bearing on the sterility of hybrids; although these results have been noticed by only a few persons."
