        La Téléphonie, sa théorie, ses applications. Le Pantéléphone

      Au bureau du journal L'Électricité, Paris 1880 - ____ Première édition. L'ingénieur belge Léon de Locht-Labye est l'inventeur du pantéléphone. C'est un transmetteur microphonique impressionnable par des vibrations sonores, dont le point de départ peut être situé à plusieurs centaines de mètres ; il transmet à plusieurs lieues, par l'intermédiaire de téléphones récepteurs, la parole prononcée à vingt mètres et plus de l'appareil ; on peut d'ailleurs parler d'aussi près que l'on veut ; la parole transmise gagne en force et surtout en netteté. Cet appareil entra en concurrence avec le téléphone de Graham Bell. Ses avantages sur ce concurrent était la qualité de la transmission sonore et l'utilisation d'un seul fil entre les deux appareils. Il fut utilisé dans quelques villes européennes et surtout à grande échelle en Argentine à partir de 1880. C'est le premier téléphone a être installé entre le fonds d'un puits de mine et la surface. Quelques illustrations in-texte. Rare. *-------*. In-8. Collation : IX, (1), 109 pp. Toile rouge. (Reliure postérieure.).

        Six Months in Ascension: An Unscientific Account of a Scientific Expedition

      London: John Murray, 1880. 8vo. liv, 285 pp. with 32 pp. of ads dated September, 1888 bound in at rear. Frontispiece map and with tables and figures in the text.Publisher's brown cloth, stamped in black and in gilt. Inscribed by David Gill on half-title: "To Annie Maclear/with best wishes/from David Gill/1890 Nov 18". Four-page manuscript poem, "In Memoriam," pinned to front free endpaper. An account of Isobel Sarah Black Gill's (1848-1919) life on Ascension Island, with her husband, Scottish astronomer Sir David Gill (1843-1914). The purpose of this 1877 expedition was to measure the solar parallax--the distance between the Earth and the Sun--by observing Mars, which was then the closest to Earth than it had been for a century. In his introduction to his wife's book he details the various historical attempts at this same endeavor. Among his many achievements, David Gill was a pioneer in the field of astrophotography, he photographed the Great Comet of 1882, and he served as the director of Lord Lindsay's (later, 26th Earl of Crawford) private observatory. Also, the Carte du Ciel project--an international effort to catalogue and map the stars--was continued largely due to Gill's support. His expedition to Ascension Island was partially funded by the Royal Astronomical Society, where he later served as president from 1909-1911. Despite Isobel's claim that the book is an "unscientific account," in Chapter I she wrote a very knowledgeable description of her husband's work which relied upon objects, such as knitting needles and lengths of fabric, to explain the measuring of astronomical distances and angles. (David Gill was once asked if his wife knew anything about astronomy, to which he replied "Not a word, thank God!") Inscribed to Annie Maclear (1868-1945), the granddaughter of Sir Thomas Maclear (1794-1879), an Irish astronomer known for his work recalculating the dimensions of the Earth, and also a friend of David Livingstone. Both Maclear and Gill spent much of their careers in South Africa and both served as Her Majesty's Astronomer at the Cape of Good Hope from 1833-1870 and 1879-1907, respectively. When they first moved to Ascension Island, Annie Maclear was one of the Gills' first visitors and became a dear friend. On December 28, 1890 in Cape Town, South Africa, Annie married Harold Jacoby (1865-1932), an American astronomer and an assistant of Gill's. This book was perhaps an engagement or wedding gift, as the inscription is dated a month before the wedding. Laid in is a fair copy of a lengthy poem in honor of Maclear entitled "In Memoriam" ("Died at Mowbray, on the 14th July 1879. Sir Thomas Maclear, late H. M. Astronomer at the Cape of Good Hope, in his 86th year...") that is signed by Gill, although her name appears to be misspelled "Isabel". The poem appears to be unique as we can find no mention or trace of it and, to our knowledge, it remains unpublished. A footnote explains that Maclear was totally blind in his last years and the poem ends, appropriately, with the lines "The weary eyes that rested here,/Preparing for a purer light,/Have opened far beyond the stars,/And endless day succeeds the night." In a letter to the English mathematician and astronomer Sir George Airy notifying him of Thomas Maclear's death, David Gill wrote that, though he had only met him a few times, he was deeply impressed by Maclear's work and hoped to "produce much valuable metal from the ore which Maclear has collected.". Hinges split; top corner of front free endpaper wanting--despite these faults still a nice copy.

        Palm House Conservatory - Botanical Garden in Belfast.

      Belfast, c. 1880. - Original 19th century Gouache with title in ink mounted separately. 15 cm high x 19 cm wide. Excellent condition of this beautiful original artwork showing the spectacular 19th century Palm House with surroundings. The gardens opened in 1828 as the private Royal Belfast Botanical Gardens. It continued as a private park for many years, only opening to members of the public on Sundays prior to 1895. Then it became a public park in 1895 when the Belfast Corporation bought the gardens from the Belfast Botanical and Horticultural Society. The Belfast Corporation was the predecessor of Belfast City Council, the present owner. The gardens' most notable feature is the Palm House conservatory. The foundation stone was laid by the Marquess of Donegall in 1839 and work was completed in 1840. It is one of the earliest examples of a curvilinear cast iron glasshouses in the world. Designed by Charles Lanyon and built by Richard Turner, Belfast's Palm House predates the glasshouses at Kew and the Irish National Botanic Gardens at Glasnevin. Turner went on to build both of these glasshouses. The Palm House consists of two wings, the cool wing and the tropical wing which contains the dome. Lanyon altered his original plans to increase the height of the dome, allowing for much taller plants. In the past these have included an 11 metre tall Globe Spear Lily. The lily, which is native to Australia, finally bloomed in March 2005 after a 23 year wait. The Palm House also features a 400 year old Xanthorrhoea . Gouache, also spelled guache, is a type of paint consisting of pigment, a binding agent (usually gum arabic), and sometimes added inert material, designed to be used in an opaque method. It also refers to paintings that use this opaque method. The name derives from the Italian guazzo. Gouache differs from watercolor in that the particles are larger, the ratio of pigment to water is much higher, and an additional, inert, white pigment such as chalk is also present. This makes gouache heavier and more opaque, with greater reflective qualities. (Wikipedia).

        John Inglesant: A Romance.

      Birmingham: Cornish Brothers, 1880. 8vo, original white parchment boards, red lettering. ¶ An adventurous philosophical romance set in England and Europe of the early 17th century. John Inglesant was first published at the expense of its unknown author, an obscure middle-aged manufacturer in Birmingham. A copy came to the attention of Mrs. Humphrey Ward (who had recently published her first novel), and its strong themes of devotion in the face of religious and social upheaval strongly impressed her. She passed her copy on to Macmillan and that firm brought out the trade edition in 1881. John Inglesant became an immediate success, selling upwards of 80,000 copies, bringing literary fame to Shorthouse and ensuring the novel a place among the minor Victorian classics. Spine water-stained; parchment a little soiled; some scattered foxing; good, sound copy.

Contemporary green half morocco, richly gilt decorated spines in 6 compartments, top edges gilt. This beautifully illustrated iconography on the lepidoptera of Ceylon was published under the special Patronage of the Government of Ceylon. It gives full descriptions of the genera and species found in Ceylon, their life-histories, structure, varieties of form, habitats, and geographical distribution. The fine plates are drawn and lithographed by the author. Frederic Moore (1830-1907) was one of the most remarkable authors on oriental lepidoptera. He was attached to the Museum of the East India Company until it was disbanded in 1879. /"Moore entered the doors of entomology by way of his artistic abilities. Dr. T. Horsfield (1777-1859), long associated with the East India Museum, required someone capable of doing natural history drawings and, through an introduction, Frederic Moore obtained the post. Thus began a lifetime association with Indian Lepidoptera" (Gilbert, Butterfly Collectors and Painters, p. 78).//A beautifully bound and an unusually clean and mint copy of this rare work.//Nissen ZBI, 2877.

        History of the Indian Tribes of North America, with Biographical Sketches and Anecdotes of the Principal Chiefs. Embellished with Fifty Portraits from the Indian Gallery in the War Department at Washigton. 2 vols.

      Philadelphia, Rice, ca. 1880. - 450, 541 pp. With 50 coloured lithographic plates (48 portraits). 4° (27,5 x 19,5 cm). Contemporary half calf with title and some gilt on spines. Cf. Brunet II, 1280; cf. Sabin 43410 a. First published in 20 parts (3 vols.; folio) by 3 printers (Biddle; Greenough; Rice and James) in the years 1836-44, containing 120 plates; 2nd printing in 1850 (no printer; 121 plates; 3 vols. in 8°). For the life and historical importance of Th. L. Kenney (1785-1859) cf. H. J. Viola in the American National Biography; McKenney, Superintendent of Indian Affairs (1824-30), gave his name as the author, but actually James Hall wrote most of the text, which is nowadays, together with the illustrations, considered as a landmark of American ethnography in the 19th century and a main source of North-American Indian history. With the assistance of John Mix Stanley (1814-72) the portraits were painted by Charles Bird King (1786-1862), who was a highly reputated painter of portraits in Washington from the 20ies on. He started his carreer as a student of the Royal Academy in London (1805-12) and came back to Philadelphia and Washington (1816). When the Smithonian Institution in Washington burned down in 1865, many of his portraits of Indian Chiefs had been destroyed as well as most of the portraits Stanley painted in 1842/52 (only 5 of 152 were saved). Cf. Thieme/Becker 20, 325 and 31, 468. Edges slightly rubbed; first leaves of both vols. very slightly stained. Please ask for further pictures. EN

        Schattentheater mit beweglichen Figuren. Eine lustige Unterhaltung für Jung und Alt.

      Format: 46,5/32/3,5 cm. Farbig lithographierter Original-Karton. Sehr frühes Schattentheater mit beweglichen Figuren. Hersteller nicht genannt, aber höchstwahrscheinlich von Sala um 1880. Der Kasten ist an Kanten und Ecken berieben und bestoßen, 2 Bruchstellen in der Umrandung sind stabilisiert worden, hier und da etwas restaurierungsbedürftig. Der Inhalt - soweit feststellbar - ist wohl fast komplett, Die Figuren (19 Stück) sind meist in Teilen und können mit dem hierfür noch vorhandenen Material nach Vorlage zusammengefügt werden. Es ist eine genaue Anleitung zum Aufstellen des Theaters und zum Basteln der Figuren dabei. Außerdem noch ein Heft (16 S.) mit Theater-Vorschlägen für alle Figuren vorhanden. Beim Deckel, der gleichzeitig auch die Bühne (Bildschirm) ist, fehlt eine Kartonumrandung. Das lose Mittelteil des Deckels mit den Abbildungen ist mit einer Schnur befestigt und kann zur Öffnung der Bühne herabgelassen werden. Interessantes und seltenes Stück in ziemlich kompletter und guter Erhaltung. - Elke Gottschalk: Papierantiquitäten, S. 110 mit Abbildungen.

        The White Ship

      Written in brown ink to rectos of 19 ruled leaves, signed and dated 'D.G. Rossetti: 1880' at end, a little spotting, contemporary plain green wrappers, 202 x 162 mm, top edge gilt, bound in contemporary gilt-lettered polished calf with oval arabesque design to centre of both covers, marbled endpapers and small armorial bookplate of the Boyds of Penkill to front pastedown, 4to. 'The ballad retells the story of the death of Henry I's son and heir, when his ship went down with all aboard on 25 November 1120 as it was sailing from France to England ... The poem was completed around 26 April 1880, but undoubtedly started much earlier, perhaps as early as 1873, certainly by 1878. Fragments for the ballad appear in a number of Rossetti's note books from those years. On 12 April 1880 he showed William Michael Rossetti some of his preliminary work on the ballad and told him he was "inclined to take it up again". Three manuscripts of the poem survive: a draft manuscript in Duke University Library; a first fair copy in Yale's Beinecke Library; and a second fair copy (printer's copy), in the British Library' (RossettiArchive.org). To the census of fair copies can now be added this third manuscript, formerly in the possession of Alice Boyd (1825-1897), 14th Laird of Penkill Castle, where Rossetti was a regular visitor. Both the draft manuscript (T.J. Wise/Ashley Library copy) and the Beinecke Library copy are written on 70 numbered, and slightly taller, pages. The ballad was first published in 'Ballads and Sonnets' (1881), and collected thereafter. Three textual variations between this copy and the Yale copy have been identified: line 46 first word is 'But' in this copy, the draft, BL and first printed editions, 'Yet' in Yale copy; line 220: 'The King had watched' in draft, Yale, BL and first published edition, but 'The King had sat' in this copy; line 236: 'When the sea-mew' is the text seen in all copies except here where it is, perhaps uniquely, 'When the sea-bird'. A handsome and distinctive manuscript from the British poet, illustrator, translator and painter who co-founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood with Holman-Hunt and Millais, thus changing the attitudes to art and aesthetics of an entire nation for generations to come.

        UKASE. WE COMMAND ALL NATIONS TO KEEP THE PEACE. DR. J. H. McLEAN'S PEACE-MAKERS ... Dr. James Henry McLean, of St. Louis, Mo., Projector, Inventor and Patentee, with Myron Coloney, of New Haven, Conn., Mechanical Inventor and Patentee

      New York: Baker & Godwin, Printers, 25 Park Row, 1880.. Large octavo, pp. [1-4] 5-200, inserted frontispiece (portrait of McLean), approximately 75 wood-engraved illustrations in the text, many full page, original pebbled plum cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black and gold, rear panel stamped in black, brown coated endpapers. First edition. An elaborate, profusely illustrated antiwar tract in the form of a satirical manufacturer's trade catalogue offering powerful military ordnance -- "peace-makers" -- which will make "war so terrible and devastating as to shock every community and cause them to rise en masse and declare that the slaughter of their fellows must cease!" (author's dedication). The author was a successful peddler of patent medicines in the St. Louis area, and, as Riling points out (see below) the style of the book, with its frequent bold headlines, is that of a patent medicine brochure. The imagined guns, torpedoes, forts etc. are not overtly fantastic, just bigger, faster, more powerful, more portable. With the impeccably drawn illustrations and confident writing style, the effect is not comically exaggerated so much as insidiously realistic, putting this production in the tradition -- so important in the nineteenth century -- of the eccentric hoax. Riling 1070. Publisher's 4-page illustrated prospectus laid in. Author's signed compliments slip affixed to the front paste-down. Cloth lightly flecked, spine panel just a bit sunned, a very good, internally fine copy. (#153271)
