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

      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 . " S.l [Paris] s.d. [circa décembre 1880-juillet 1884] 10,2x13 cm 3 pages sur feuillet double

        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."

This was the beginning of his 20-year career as a government photographer documenting the American West. The images by Hillers included in this set are most likely from the first James Stevenson expedition to the Southwest. .

        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. ***

A STUNNING PORTRAYAL OF 48 YEARS OF 19TH CENTURY FASHION. During Jules David's long career, the fashionable figure was transformed. The delicate Dresden figurine of 1870, dressed in a modest, elaborate and very feminine style, was displaced by the -seven foot beauty with the ten inch waist of 1893. The modern woman of 1893 was much more self-confident and her dress much more revealing and sophisticated than would have been suitable twenty years earlier. An evolution from the depths of Victoriana towards Art Nouveau. Some volumes signed on the endpaper Contesse de Marnix - who was Marnix de Sainte Aldegonde an important Belgian noble family. Thus this collection is believed to come from that family. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Sunshine And Storm In The East, or Cruises to Cyprus and Constantinople.

      London, Longmans, Green & Co.,1880. 8vo. Original pictorial cloth in red, brown and gold, designed and signed in the plate by Gustave Doré, bound by Simson and Renshaw; pp. xx, [2], 448, wood-engraved vignette on title, with wood-engraved frontispiece, eight wood-engraved plates (all with tissue guards) and over 100 wood-engravings in the text, colour-printed folding maps at either end of the volume; apart from light ofsetting from endpapers, as usual, one slight knick to upper edge of front cover and minimal fading to spine, a fine copy; provenance: presentation copy with signed presentation note by the author's widow, Lord Brassey, dated 1890, tipped in at the front. First edition of an account of a classic private luxury cruise of the Mediterranean with a strong focus on the Levant and illustrations of city- and landscapes, street scenes, as well as regional jewellery, written by one of the most prominent women travellers of the Victorian period, Anna "Annie" Brassey (née Allnutt), Baroness Brassey (1839-1887), who had her household and family on board of the Sunbeam and keenly observed societies and cities, collected artifacts and took photos, a large portion of which are now owned by the Huntington Library. '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.

        A la Guerre comme a la Guerre. BOUND WITH: Le Grand Magasin d'Images

      1880 - CHAM (pseudonym of NOÉ, Charles Amédée de). A la Guerre comme a la Guerre. BOUND WITH: Le Grand Magasin d’Images (bound first). Paris: Aubert, circa 1880. Oblong quarto, contemporary half green calf gilt, marbled boards and endpapers. $2750.First edition of this suite of 30 full-page hand-colored lithographs of Cham caricatures documenting the French colonization of North Africa, bound with an intriguing publication of 790 French magazine illustrations.Cham saw a career that would result in over 40,000 drawings, many of them caricatures and sketches of French and Algerian life. In 1843 he began to contribute to such newspapers as Le Charivari, whose staff he eventually joined and remained for 30 years. These are Cham’s parodies of war scenes (apparently from the French colonies in North Africa), 30 hand-colored lithographs similar to those he produced for the Album du Siège (Charivari, 1870)— in collaboration with Honoré Daumier. "Cham embued stories [in Le Charivari] with the comic force of his caricatures These, in the future, will remain when the fleeting stories are forgotten: the day after the stew evaporates and salt escapes us. People who have seen Cham’s images will always remember the huge success of the cartoonist" (Henri Beraldi). Bound with this is an ingenious publication of 790 small in-text wood-engravings, produced by various engravers and appearing at different times in French magazines, around which is woven a clever story line about the travels and adventures of the Lacroix family, written to match the diverse engravings. Minor spotting to margins of a few plates (not affecting images),light expert restoration to contemporary binding. Extremely good condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

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]
