        L'arachnologiste Eugène Simon identifie une araignée.

      - 1 lettre autographe signée 2 In-12 07/04/1880 très bon «L'araignée que vous me communiquez est le Selenocosmia javanensis Walck, genre démembré des mygales de Walck. Je ne connais absolument rien de ses moeurs. Dans l'état pitoyable où elle est, cette araignée ne peut être préparée [.]». Il évoque les envois du naturaliste et erpétologiste Victor Collin de Plancy (1853/1922) qui voyage en Chine. «M. Collin de Plancy a envoyé tout récemment deux grandes caisses d'objets d'histoire naturelle contenant surtout des oiseaux et des reptiles ; deux flacons d'arachnides qui m'étaient destinés ne renfermaient que peu d'espèces et plusieurs individus du Bultus confucios ; il faut croire qu'il n'y a qu'une seule espèce de scorpion à Pélin. Je vous remercie à l'avance pour les arachnides du Sénégal ; je ne possède presque rien de cette région [.]». Arachnologiste, il a consacré toute sa vie aux araignées ; auteur de l'Histoire naturelle des araignées (1864-1884) et des Arachnides de France (1874-1937). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [PACIFIC - TAHITI] Spitz, Charles Georges; Hoare, Susan; Miot, Paul-Emile. [Album of Fifty Early Original Photographs of Tahiti, Including Portraits of Queen Pomare IV, King Pomare V and His Wife, Queen of Bora Bora, French Naval Officers, Views of the French Naval Transport Ship Scorff, Matavai Bay, Titled:] Souvenirs l'Ocean Pacifique

      Ca. 1880-1887. 32,5x25 cm. Sixty album leaves (ten blank). Fifty albumen prints (one in two copies) of various size, from 7x4,5 cm to ca. 20x25,5 cm, the majority are ca. 11x16,5 cm or slightly larger. Photographs are mounted on rectos of the album leaves (with one mounted on verso, one loosely inserted); the majority with period manuscript pencil or ink captions in French on the mounts. Nine photos additionally mounted on card (including five images on the cabinet cards of Papeete photo studios of Georges Spitz and Mrs. S. Hoare). Contemporary cloth album with colour stamped decorative ornament on the boards and spine; paper label with a faded ink title on the front cover, spine and back cover with some mild fading, but overall a very good album and strong interesting photographs. Interesting collection of early views of Tahiti taken by prominent local photographers just a few years after the annexation of the island by France in 1880. The photos were apparently collected by a French naval officer during his service in 1886-1887 on the transport ship 'Scorff' of the French Pacific Naval Division under command of Raymond Paul Adolphe Marie de Royer de Saint Julien (1849-1900). The album opens with a portrait of Queen Pomare IV taken by an important photographer of Tahiti Admiral Paul-Emile Miot in ca. 1870; a part of the outstanding series of photos of Oceania taken by Miot during his service as the chief of staff of the French Naval Pacific Division on board the frigate 'Astrée' in 1868-71. The other images in the album belong to the Papeete studios of Charles Spitz and Susan Hoare: five photos are mounted on the distinctive studio cards with printed names of the photographers, and eight more were identified on the basis of Jean-Yves Tréhin's ''Tahiti, l'Éden à l'épreuve de la photographie'' (Gallimard, 2003, see pp. 68, 72, 84, 85, 89, 94, 100, and others); the other images most likely were taken by the same studios, judging on the similar style and choice of objects. The photographs include several port raits of the rulers of the Society Islands, including those of Queen Pomare IV, King Pomare V and his wife Queen Marau, the king surrounded by his tohitus (chiefs), and the Queen of Bora Bora; the members of the influential Salmon family (the founder of the clan Alexander Salmon (1820-1866), a merchant from Britain, became the first Jew to reside in Tahiti); interesting studio group portraits of Tahitians in traditional costumes; a well-known portrait of a Marquesan warrior, families of the ''Tahitians from the interior'', and others. There are also interesting street views of Papeete and several photos of the interior of Tahiti (most likely taken by George Spitz during his travels across the island): Matavai Bay, Fautaua River and Falls, Le Diadème Peak, Taravao; and a distant view of the Moorea Island. Ten 'naval' photos include a portrait of Rear-Admiral Marcq de Saint-Hilaire, the commander of the Pacific Division at the time, group portrait of 'Scorff's' officers (in two copies), views of the 'Scorff', 'Décret', 'Duquesne' and other ships of the Pacific Division on the Tahitian roadstead, festivities on the 14th of July in the Papeete harbor, a large view of a military review, and others. There is also an interesting photo of the distribution of prizes at the first Papeete Catholic school for boys in 1886, featuring Delphino Moracchini (governor of French Polynesia in 1885-1886).

Spine has two L-shaped tears, two diagonal creases, and a small tear at head. Front wrapper has a cornerfold. Contents have a few scattered small specks and cornerfolds.

        [Photo Album]: European Travels

      1880. Near Fine. Oblong folio. Full brown leathers with the words "album of photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. 11" x 14". A collection of 65 sepia toned albumen photographs some include captions and photographer information in the plate. The photos vary in size with most of them measuring 8.25" x 10.5" or 6" x 10". Very good with modestly worn edges and some foxing on the pages. An assemblage of photographs from roughly 1880 beginning in Paris with detailed exterior and interior photographs of La Sainte-Chapelle and the Hotel de Ville. The album continues through Belgium, Nuremberg, Switzerland, Prague, England, and Milan among others, displaying some of the most impressive attractions and architecture of each country or city. Some of these include La Fleche de la Cathedrale in Strasbourg which was the tallest building in the world until 1874; Lausanne Cathedral of Switzerland; and The Frauenkirche Church in Nuremberg. Towards the middle of the book are scenes of locals, one of a dark skinned gondolier, uncaptioned but presumably in Venice, a boy and an older woman sitting in an ally in San Remo, and priests sitting by a well on the grounds of the Carthusian monastery in Florence. Photo credits include the Italian photographer, Edizioni Brogi, A. Wimmer, and the German photographer Giorgio Sommer. The album is full of beautiful European landscapes and views of numerous churches, abbeys, and castles throughout the continent. A lovely assortment of late Victorian photography.

        HISTORY OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CALIFORNIA with Illustrations Descriptive of Its Scenery, Residences, Fine Blocks, Manufactories, from Original Sketches by Artists of the Highest Ability

      Oakland, California: Thompson & West, 1880. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. As an architectural depiction of early Los Angeles County, along with Wilson's comprehensive description of the county's townships, this book has no equal. It has come to be known ever since as simply the Thompson & West. J. Gregg Layne in his Books of the Los Angeles District, describes it as "one of the rarest of that fine early series of California county histories [...] complied from the newspapers of the county from 1854 to 1880, as well as city and county records, and from interviews with many early pioneers." Among the estates and residences depicted is a veritable who's who of notable Angelenos, including those belonging to Mrs. Phineas Banning, Don Manuel Dominguez, J.E. Hollenbeck, H.M. Newhall, John Rowland, and W.H. Workman. Includes a full-page colored rendition of H.H. Lloyd and Co's map of California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona and 86 lithographed plates, including two two-panel. 11" x 15"; 192 pp. Original dark brown cloth binding over the original black sheep spine, with gilt titles and decorative blindstamping. Small tears to the extremities of a few pages, with a smudge to the border of the map and the opposing leaf. Ink presentation inscription to the Ebell of Los Angeles from Katherine S. Parker, a longtime member, on the Table of Contents leaf. A short tear to the fore-edge of that leaf has been neatly mended. Two additional mends have been made to the verso of the title page. A pair of unobtrusive Ebell ink stamps appear on the front pastedown. The leather has been archivally refurbished. Light fading along the extremities of the boards; otherwise very good. Dawson Eighty 78; Layne 53.

        Life of William Blake. With Selections from his Poems and Other Writings. A New and Enlarged Edition illustrated from Blake's own Works. With additional Letters and a Memoir of the Author.

      2 vols. London: Macmillan, 1880. 2 vols., 8vo, xvii, 431; ix, 383 pp., with a portrait frontispiece in each volume and numerous illustrations. Original blue cloth with elaborate gilt-stamped designs. A very good copy of this attractive binding with the binder's ticket "Bound by Burn & Co" at the back. Second and best edition. Of special interest are the original prints - three from the Virgil woodblocks (in this edition printed on India paper and preferable to the prints in the first edition of Gilchrist) and 17 from electrotypes made from the original copperplates of the Songs of Innocence and of Experience. Gilchrist was Blake's first full-scale biographer; the work was unfinished when he died and largely completed by Dante Gabriel Rossetti who wrote the final chapter from Gilchrist's notes, with help from his brother William Michael, and also Swinburne whose own book on Blake was the result of his researches when reviewing Gilchrist's book. Bentley, Blake Books, 1680B.

      Calmann Lévy 1880 - - Calmann Lévy, Paris 1880, 15,5x24cm, relié. - Edition originale. Reliure en demi maroquin noir à coins, dos à quatre nerfs sertis de pointillés dorés et orné de doubles caissons dorés décorés en angles, date et mention « Ex. de J. Drouet » dorées en queue, plats de papier marbré, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, couvertures et dos conservés, tête dorée, reliure signée de René Aussourd. Quelques petites rousseurs principalement en début et fin de volume. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Victor Hugo à Juliette Drouet, le grand amour de sa vie : « A vous, ma dame. Humble hommage. V. » L'exemplaire provient de la bibliothèque de Pierre Duché. Ce dernier avait acheté en bloc la bibliothèque de Juliette Drouet et avait confié les volumes à René Aussourd pour les faire relier de manière uniforme avec l'inscription permettant leur identification en queue. Ex-libris encollés sur un contreplat et une garde. C'est à la fin de l'année 1878, soit après plus de quarante ans de relation, que Victor Hugo et son amante emménagent enfin ensemble avenue d'Eylau, dans le petit hôtel où le poète finira sa vie. « A partir de ce moment, on peut dire que la vie de Juliette ne fut plus guère qu'une tristesse ininterrompue, une servitude de toutes les heures. Elle souffre elle-même d'un cancer à l'estomac, elle sait qu'elle est condamnée, condamnée à mourir de faim ! » (Louis Guimbaud, Victor Hugo et Juliette Drouet, Paris, 1927). Malgré ses souffrances et sa grande faiblesse physique, elle tient toujours avec fidélité le rôle de garde-malade de son « Toto ». C'est d'ailleurs à cette époque que Bastien Lepage peint d'elle un portrait d'un réalisme frappant : « De son visage de déesse, sérieux et calme, la maladie impitoyable a fait une pauvre figure humaine, tirée et creusée, sillonnée de rides dont chacune semble conter quelque douleur. » (op. cit.) Religions et religion paraît deux ans avant la disparition de Juliette ; il s'agit de l'un des derniers ouvrages qu'Hugo dédicace humblement au grand et dévoué amour de sa vie. Hugo rendra d'ailleurs hommage au dévouement sans faille de sa compagne en lui offrant une photographie sur laquelle il inscrit : « Cinquante ans, c'est le plus beau mariage. ». Exemplaire de la plus intime provenance. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] first edition, one of the 25 numbered copies on laid to the form numbered and justified by the publisher, only large papers. Binding in full maroon, bordeaux, back with five nerves adorned with quadruple gilded cartridges and a listel of morocco green of water, gold date in tail, golden wheels on the headdresses, frame of quadruple gilded nets and a listel of morocco water green on the boards, silk ribbons and countertops moiré green of water, framing of a listel of morocco green of water and a golden net on the guards and the counterplates, covers illustrated by Manuel Orazi and back preserved, all golden slices, case bordered of bordeaux maroquin and boards of paper to the vat, interior of burgundy felt, superb binding in full morocco signed Devauchelle. Illustrated book of 136 drawings in and out-text in black and in color by Georges Bottini. Very beautiful example perfectly established in a binding in full morocco signed Devauchelle.
