One or two creases stronger but really a very good set of images. All photographs now held within archival acid free sleeves and housed in an archival storage box.

One of 277 sets printed by Remington, but paid for by Gissing. By the end of 1880, only 49 copies had been sold at one guinea. A near fine, if not the finest surviving copy of one of the great rarities of nineteenth-century literature. Workers in the Dawn, described by Sutherland as having the 'melodramatic excesses of a first novel', centres on the wretched life of Arthur Golding and his destructive relationship with two women, Helen Norman, a clergyman's daughter, and Carrie Mitchell, a young prostitute. Arthur takes pity on the 'whoring and brandy-drinking' Carrie and marries her in an attempt to cure her ways. He fails miserably and flees to America seeking a melodramatic end by hurling himself into Niagara Falls screaming 'Helen! Helen!'. Loosely inserted is a typed unpriced catalogue description of this set by the New York dealer James F. Drake, Inc.

Octavo (7 3/4 x 5 3/8 inches; 192 x 137 mm.). xii, 219, 1, blank] pp. With forty-one line illustrations in the text.Bound ca. 1900 in a fine 'Exhibition' binding by Zaehnsdorf (stamp-signed in black on front silk paste-down). Full dark green morocco, covers with elaborate gilt pointille decoration surrounding a fox, a dog, a trout and a partridge in the corners (front cover also lettered in gilt), spine with five raised bands, elaborately tooled in gilt with sporting devices and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt ruled board edges and elaborate gilt turn-ins, pale green silk liners and end-leaves, all edged gilt. The rear liner with the Zaehnsdorf 'Exhibition' stamp in black. Upper and lower extremities of front joint expertly and almost invisibly repaired, otherwise very fine.

Housed in a later fleece-lined green cloth slipcase.The Gamekeeper at Home was first published without illustrations two years earlier, in 1878.John Richard Jefferies (1848-1887) was an English nature writer, noted for his depiction of English rural life in essays, books of natural history, and novels. His childhood on a small Wiltshire farm had a great influence on him and provides the background to all his major works of fiction. The Gamekeeper At Home is probably his best known work, truly reflecting those by-gone days when the Gamekeeper was a vital part of rural activities. He discusses the man himself and how he fits into the community and examines his relations with his family. His area of activity is covered - the fields, the woods, the meadows and the ponds and streams. The world around him needs protection from the predators that kill the game and disturb the balance of nature. There is contact with his dogs and other animals such as rabbits and deer as well as the traditional enemies such as the fox. All parts are brought together so the reader can sense the activity of the countryside and the efforts to keep its integral parts operating in harmony. This understanding is enhanced by the masterly drawings by Charles Whymper.Charles Whymper (1853-1941), was a prolific book illustrator specializing in travel, animal, and hunting themes.

        Sur l'hallucination visuelle, preuve physiologique de la nature de cette hallucination

      Paris, J.B, Baillière et fils ; Lyon, Henri Georg, 1880, in-8, 22 pp, broché, couverture imprimée, Première édition. Exemplaire enrichi d'un envoi signé de l'auteur au Docteur Carrier de Lyon. Paul-Max Simon (1837-1889), chef du service médical de l'asile de Bron et directeur de l'asile de Blois, a écrit de nombreuses études sur le rêve, le somnambulisme, l'hypnotisme et les hallucinations. Dans cet ouvrage consacré aux hallucinations visuelles essentiellement, il démontre que les rapports entre l'hallucination et la vue sont plus étroits que dans les autres sens. Simon démontre que depuis la couche corticale jusqu'à la rétine, l'appareil visuel entier est mis dans le même état lors d'une hallucination que lorsque le sens est stimulé par une perception réelle. Ex-libris du docteur Carrier. Bel exemplaire.

        The Power of Movement in Plants.

      London: John Murray,, 1880. With illustrations. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt and with gilt decorative border at ends, covers blindstamped, brown coated endpapers. With the publisher's 32-page catalogue, dated May 1878, to the rear. With 196 woodcuts in the text. Bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown. Slight rubbing to extremities, tiny nick to head of front joint, small glue residue to front free endpaper; an excellent, largely unopened, copy. First edition, first issue, with 32pp. inserted adverts dated May 1878 and with two lines of errata at the foot of page x. "The first edition was published on November 6, 1880, and it is recorded that 1,500 copies were sold at Murray's autumn sale" (Freeman). The collaborative authorship proclaimed on the title page reflects Darwin's concern to introduce his children into the world of science. Francis Darwin had trained as a doctor but turned from medicine to botany, initially working as secretary and assistant to his father. In 1876 he had been for some months at the University of Würzburg, learning laboratory methods from Julius Sachs. "The book was an extension of Charles Darwin's work on climbing plants and it showed that the same mechanisms can be observed in plants in general. By extending the idea of irregular circumnutation the Darwins analysed the growth movement of plants in response to factors of the environment such as light, gravity, and wounds. In addition, they demonstrated that the mechanism of curvature in both roots and shoots was the result of differential growth rates. They could also confirm that the effect of the stimuli on the growth movement was indirect and that light and gravity act on some substance in the tip of the root and the shoot, which is transmitted to other parts of the plant. Francis Darwin later refined some of the experimental techniques and modified their theoretical conclusions" (ODNB). This copy with the compliments slip of bibliophile Arnold Muirhead (1900–1988) laid-in.

        London, Windsor Castle and Manchester. 140 original albumen photographic prints mounted on stiff card in original album. 17 images of Windsor Castle, 75 images of London and 48 of Manchester.

      A unique, Individually compiled album, about 1880. - The London and Windsor Prints are nearly all titled in white in the negative with a number and either the initials 'GWW' or 'JV'. Most of the Manchester prints are blind-stamped 'Frith's Series' in the bottom left corner. Some are titled and/or numbered in the negative in white, but many are hand-titled on the album leaf in ink. The photographs, each approximately 20x13 cms, are mounted on both sides of the card leaves, 2 to a side. The half maroon morocco album measures 38x28 cms and is a little soiled, and frayed along the edges. Internally the card mounts are somewhat darkened and soiled, with some foxing, especially the first 2 leaves. Some of the linen tags holding the card mounts are becoming worn and fragile. The photos themselves are predominantly in very good, clean and clear condition, with only a few being slightly faded. The card leaves have over time developed a slightly 'wavy' configuration,which does not, however, affect the quality or condition of the album. Although the album overall shows some signs of age and wear, this is a wonderful survival, a unique item, with an astonishing 140 photographs, which shows Victorian London, Windsor Castle and Manchester at the height of their 19th century wealth and glory. Those of Manchester are particularly interesting, with its 19th century public buildings reflecting the progress and pride felt in the city. Many of the exterior shots are extraordinary animated, with horse-drawn vehicles, pedestrians and street furniture. Where relevant, the interior shots picture furniture and fittings as placed nearly 150 years ago. A brief summary of the subjects: Windsor Castle: 6 exterior and 7 interior views; St. George's Chapel; 1 exterior and 3 interior. London: Buckingham Palace. House of Lords; 2 interior, 3 exterior.

        Egypt: Descriptive, Historical and Picturesque

      London, Paris and New York: Cassell, Petter and Gilpin, 1880. First edition of this monumental work on Egyptology. Folio, 2 volumes, pictorial brown cloth, gilt tooling and stamping to the spine and front panels, bevelled boards, all edges gilt. Illustrated with full-page plates. Very lightly rubbed; corners bumped. Translated from the German by Clara Bell. With an introduction and notes by S. Birch. An exceptional example, uncommon in this condition. Professor of Egyptology at Leipzig, Georg Ebers wrote histories and romantic novels relating to Egypt and was one of a handful of men who promoted and popularized its rediscovered ancient wonders. This work, handsomely illustrated with full-page wood-engraved plates and in-text vignettes of temples, pyramids, hieroglyphs and scenes along the Nile, is part history, part travelogue, and provides a fascinating view of Egypt in the late 19th century. The fine wood-engravings are by prominent contemporary artists, chief among them Lawrence Alma Tadema, "the most prolific and skilled of all who worked in [Egyptology]--'the painter of the Victorian vision of the ancient world" (Clayton, Rediscovery of Ancient Egypt, 178).

        Across the Zodiac: The Story of a Wrecked Record Deciphered, Translated and Edited by . .

      London: Trübner & Co., 1880, 1880. First edition. Locke, Spectrum of Fantasy, page 96; not in Wolff, who had but one novel by Greg. Hinges and spine skillfully repaired; very good copy. Rare.. 2 vols, 8vo, original brown cloth, gilt lettering. A major work of Victorian science fiction, the story of "a flight, in a huge spacecraft powered by a force called apergy, to Mars, which is found to be populated by a scientifically advanced people" - Locke. The story purports to be a translation of a manuscript in Latin, which is discovered by a former Colonel in the Confederate army, after he is shipwrecked on an unknown island in the South Pacific. Percy Greg (1836-1889) was a journalist from Manchester, who had an interest in American history, particularly the Civil War; hence the Confederate character in an English novel of science fiction. He wrote several other novels and was a prolific contributor to Blackwood's, the Manchester Guardian, Fraser's, etc. See Allibone, Supplement, and the ODNB.

        [PHOTOGRAPHIC PANORAMA] Brisbane from Observatory in 4 pieces.

      [Title from contemporary inscription verso]. Brisbane : Imperial Photographic Company, [c.1880]. Photographic panorama comprised of four contiguous albumen prints, each 250 x 280 mm, versos with wet stamp of 'Imperial Photo. Coy. Brisbane' and contemporary sequence numbers 1-4 in pencil, number 3 also inscribed with title 'Brisbane from Observatory in 4 pieces'; the four albumen prints are loose, having never been mounted; each has mild foxing, short edge tears and some creasing; panels 2,3 and 4 also display silverfish damage along the left hand edges; the photographic quality of the prints is exceptional, with beautiful chocolate tones and superb detail. A rare and impressive panorama of Brisbane, complete in four separate panels, as issued by Daniel F. Metcalfe's Imperial Photographic Company. We can locate no other complete example in Australian collections, although copies of individual panels may of course be preserved in contemporary albums of Brisbane views. American-born photographer Daniel F. Metcalfe opened his first Australian studio in Sydney in 1864. When the business failed, he joined the photographic firm of his step-father, Thomas Skelton Glaister. In the late 1860s, in partnership with Robert Millington, he travelled throughout regional New South Wales, ultimately making his way to Brisbane where he established a business in Queen Street from 1870. After brief business partnerships with his half-brother Thomas Skelton Middleton Glaister and William True Bennett, in 1880 D.F. Metcalfe took over the formerly Daniel Marquis-owned Imperial Photographic Company in Queen Street, which he relocated to George Street. A notice placed by Metcalfe in The Telegraph, Brisbane, 6 May 1880, advertising large format photographic prints of the type used in his four-panel panorama of Brisbane from Bowen Terrace, read: 'Wanted. The Public to inspect the Large Direct Pictures now executed by Imperial Photo. Company. Prices from 7s 6d. each; Carte de Visites 7s 6d, and Cabinets, 15s per dozen.'

        Jerusalem.

      (Palestine, 1880s). - Oblong album (445 x 315 mm) with 71 large albumen photographic prints, mostly ca. 22 x 28 cm, signed and captioned in the negative (in French and English), mounted on both sides of the album's leaves. Includes a three-part folding panorama of Jerusalem from Mount Olivet, measuring 82 x 21 cms. Ornamental endpapers printed in gilt. Original auburn morocco with gilt upper cover. All edges gilt. A rare and unusually massive Palestine souvenir album containing 71 photographs by the renowned studio of Félix Bonfils (1831-85), the French-born photographer who had come to the Levant with General d'Hautpoul in 1860 and remained active in the East. Based in Beirut, Bonfils produced thousands of photographs depicting Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Greece and other parts of the Ottoman Empire. In the early days of western tourism to the Middle East, his works soon became popular as souvenirs. The photographs were available both separately and as individually arranged albums, but sets of this scope were uncommon, very few exceeding fifty images. The sumptuous binding which the owner chose underlines that this was a luxury souvenir for a more than ordinarily wealthy traveller. It features landscapes and city views, famous sights such as Jaffa Gate (Bab el-Khalil), sites sacred to the three religions (Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Church of the Flagellation, Al-Aqsa Mosque, Mosque of Omar, Wailing Wall), but also sights outside Jerusalem, including Hebron, Bethlehem, the Dead Sea, the River Jordan, Jericho, Wadi el-Kelt, Khan-el-Ahmar, Bethany, Nazareth, and Emmaus. - The photographs occasionally show some insignificant loss of contrast, but are altogether in good condition. A few edge flaws to the cardboard leaves, including a chafe mark across the lower edge where the paper has buckled. Binding in good condition, with occasional scuffing (more obvious on lower cover). A fine album of photographs of Palestine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Nine photographs of Egypt.

      Egypt, [1880s]. - 9 albumen prints (approx. 340 x 260 mm), each mounted on backing cardboard (ca. 400 x 330 mm). Three edges gilt. A fine set of nine albumen images of Egyptian sights and views, including Karnak, ships on the Nile, the Aswan cataract, the Temple of Edfu, murals at the Sanctuary at Karnak, camel drivers on the Sinai, etc. Pascal Sébah (1823-86), a leading photographer of the Middle East, was renowned for his well-judged compositions and for the excellent print quality achieved by his technician A. Laroche. His studio, founded in 1857, was continued under his brother Cosimi and his son Jean. A single image in this series is not by Sebah: a view of the island of Philae (near the First Cataract of the Nile) is signed "A. Beato" in a shaded portion of the image, identifiying this as the work of Antonio (Antoine) Beato (after 1832-1906), a British and Italian photographer noted for his genre works, portraits, views of the architecture and landscapes of Egypt and the other locations in the Mediterranean region. - Slight fading; well preserved.

        Constantinople et Athènes.

      Istanbul and Athens, [1880s]. - Oblong album (370 x 284 mm) with 47 large albumen photographic prints, generally ca. 20 x 26 to ca. 22 x 28 cm, mostly signed and captioned in the negative (in French), mounted on both sides of the album's leaves.

The Turkish images are almost exclusively signed by the renowned studio of Guillaume Berggren (1835-1920), the Swedish-born photographer who had come to Constantinople in 1866 and remained there for the rest of his life. Berggren's photographs were particularly popular with Scandinavian, German and Austrian tourists seeking souvenirs of their Middle-Eastern journey. The present album includes landscapes and city views, famous sights such as the Galata Tower and Bridge, the Yeni Cami Mosque, the Hagia Sophia with its interiors, a "shadirvan" fountain for ritual ablutions in front of the Hagia Sophia, the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Rüstem Pasha Mosque, Skutari Cemetery, views of the Golden Horn, street scenes, dervishes, the Bosporus, the French embassy in Tarabya, the city port, the steps leading up the Grand Street of Pera (where Berggren's studio was located), etc. The Greek views include Mount Lycabettus, a two-image panorama of the Acropolis, the Olympieion and the so-called Theseion (Temple of Hephaestus). - A few photographs show insignificant loss of contrast, but they are altogether in good condition, mostly preserving their original crispness. A few images captioned in pencil on the backboard. Corners of binding bumped; leather chafed and spine-ends more markedly flawed. A fine collection. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Sushchnosti sotsializma d-ra A. Sheffle. i.e. The Quintessence of Socialism].

      [N. p., 1880s]. - [92 pp.] 175:113 mm. Handwritten brochure, quires (sections) sewn together. Paper with watermarks (Uglich manufacture #6), ink. Foxing, quires are separated from each other, a tear and soiling of the last page. The text of the brochure is translated from the eighth edition (Gotha: F.A. Perthes, 1885) as it stated on the first page. The brochure contains nine chapters. Every leaf is numbered starting from the first chapter (44 numbered pages). With introduction to the first and the second editions. This manuscript book was created by Russian underground Marxists as they tried to spread their ideas. This kind of books were banned in the country at the time and a person cought distributing them would had faced arrest. This is an interesting historical evidence of the most revolutionary time in Russian history. The Quintessence of Socialism by a German economist Albert Schäffle (1831-1903) was mostly interpreted as an unbiased presentation of socialism but outside of Germany it was used as a basic introduction to socialism. It was a strictly scientific yet popular and easy to understand account of socialism. Among other things the author analyzes socialist idea of the public organization of production and the role of collective property in the process of production and sharing. It's not surprising that the book attracted a lot of attention of Social Democrats because Schäffle based a lot of his brief exposition of socialist economics on the theories of Marx. He concentrated solely upon economic theory and inadvertently emasculated Marxism of its political and truly revolutionary implications. Marx responded negatively to Schäffle's work claiming he had never built a socialist system in his works and called Schäffle's views on socialism fantasies but these fantasies became very popular among certain groups of revolutionaries including Narodnaya Volya in Russia. Schäffle's book was widely read by interested Social Democrats cannot be doubted, for it was admirably brief, clearly written, and easily available. Obviuosly the Social Democrats could not accept Schäffle without some modifications. Nevertheless, some of them imbibed a sufficient dosage to set up a tension within the movement between the traditional democratic-political principles and what they took to be their socialist-economic principles as defined by Schäffle. For example, a member of Land and Liberty group (Zemlya i Volya) Osip Aptekman wrote in his memoirs: ''[.] Marx's Zur Kritik and The Quintessence of Socialism by Schäffle were going the rounds. Plekhanov importuned me to scrutinize these two books. I constantly read it outloud and translated while Plekhanov was catching it on the fly and capturing it in his memory'' (Aptekman, O. Obshchestvo Zemlya i Volya of 1870s). First Russian translation was published in Geneva in 1881 (from the 7th German edition). In 1906 were published first Russian editions in Odessa and St. Petersburg. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
