        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.

        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."

        YOUNG JAPAN: Yokohama and Yedo A Narrative of the Settlementand the City from th

      - Yokohama 1880-81, Trubner. Yellow pictorial cloth, 2 vol.set 418+522p., very clean, tiny bit wear to spine head/tail, the contents very clean, solid, very good plus copy, 15 x 24 cm. FIRST EDITION SCARCE 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. ***

'Mrs. Brassey has presented us with her magnificent work, called, Sunshine and Storm in the East Mrs. Brassey has, to - use the reviewer's phrase, already "made her mark " in literature; at all events, her Voyage in the Sunbeam, has been read by thousands of people, and has received the kindly notice of most of the critics of the Press, ourselves included. But it would seem that Mrs. Brassey has been moved to rival, if not to surpass, her first success. In what measure she has realised this purpose, we hope to show. It is impossible, in the first place, to be silent regarding the extraordinary merits of the binding, - of the pictorial design, that is [...] signed by the hand of no less eminent an artist than M. Gustave Doré. Upon a warm, grey background of sea and sky, picked out with black cloud and wave-lines and gold sun-rays, we have a superb scarlet scroll, which is being unrolled at both ends by two groups of fairy-like beings in gossamer attire, who seem partly to float upon the surface of the ocean, partly to hover above it. On the back of the book, in the foreground, is a small vessel, heeling over under the stress of the gale. What does all this mean? Mrs. Brassey, in her preface, is so obliging as to inform us. The nymphs of Ocean, we are told, flattered by the attention already shown them by the Sunbeam, in her voyage round the world, are unfolding before the vessel's path a long scroll, on which are depicted all the kingdoms of the earth, and the glory of them, hoping thereby to induce Mrs. Brassey to continue her triumphal career. It is surely an encouraging sign to see Art applied to such worthy ends as this. We may now look forward to deriving a twofold enjoyment from our libraries. If, for any cause, the interior of a book fails to please us, we have but to close it, and straightaway our eyes will be captivated by the charms of the outside. Our book-shelves must now be arranged upon a new plan, enabling us to see the whole of the bindings of the volumes at once, instead of only the backs, as heretofore. Or perhaps the covers can be so con trived as to come off, and then, by framing them and hanging them on the walls, we shall be decorating our rooms with one hand, so to say, while we instruct our minds with the other. Ultimately, books may come to be bought and sold on the strength of their exteriors only, and literature will assume the position of a vehicle for the dissemination of bindings. But, in short, there is no telling where this novel idea of Mrs. Brassey and of M. Gustave Doré may land us. Meanwhile, they deserve all the credit they are likely to receive for their initiation of so suggestive a reform' eulogized the book reviewer of the Spectator (January 3, 1880, p. 27f.) - and on he went about the merits of the text, illustrations and maps for several long sentences. - The most beautiful copy of this increasingly scarce title we had in years.

Hughes, social reformer and children's writer sought an appointment, which he was given in July 1882, as a county court judge. This brought an end to his involvement in politics, and a move to Chester. He resigned from the Co-operative Union. His work as a judge seems to have been congenial to him although, according to John Telford, 'his rough and ready justice became a byword for constant reversal on appeal' (Telford, 10). During the 1880s he wrote four more biographies, including Daniel Macmillan (1882) and David Livingstone (1889). He built himself a house called Uffington, at Dee Hills Park, Chester, to which he moved in October 1885. See ODNB for a full Bio. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
