        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.

        The Lepidoptera of Ceylon.

      London, L. Reeve, 1880-1887. 3 volumes. Large-4to (285 x 225mm). pp. (2), xii, 190; (2), viii, 162; xv, (1), 578, with 215 handcoloured lithographed plates. 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

      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.

        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' ( 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)

        Advance and Retreat

      1880. First Edition . HOOD, John Bell. Advance and Retreat. Personal Experiences in the United States and Confederate Armies. New Orleans: G.T. Beauregard, 1880. Octavo, original three-quarter brown morocco, raised bands, marbled boards. $1600.First edition of this dramatic Confederate memoir, with two full-page engraved portraits and four maps, one folding, scarce in publisher's original three-quarter morocco.Hood's memoir focuses on his Confederate service, from his early involvement at Second Manassas and Sharpsburg to his surrender at Natchez, Mississippi. Though much admired as a divisional and corps commander, Hood's aggressive tendencies helped to seal the fate of the Confederacy at the Battle of Atlanta. Hood took over army command after Johnston's removal and decided to move his troops from their well-entrenched positions in and around Atlanta to attack Sherman's numerically superior forces. The resulting rout broke the last Southern stronghold and freed the way for Sherman's infamous march to the sea. Of Advance and Retreat, Freeman wrote in The South to Posterity, ""This is a genuinely tragic book, brave and bitter, wistful and manly, touched with humor in the early chapters, grim in its recountal of the circumstances which defeated his final plan of operations."" Tall Cotton 93. Eicher 240. Wright 1051. Howes H622. Interior fresh with light foxing, only tiny bit of marginal dampstaining, front inner hinge expertly repaired. An extremely good copy.

[Garrison - Morton - 4558 / Haymaker pp. 420/427] Jean-Martin Charcot (29 November 1825 – 16 August 1893) was a French neurologist and professor of anatomical pathology. He is known as "the founder of modern neurology" and is "associated with at least 15 medical eponyms", including Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (motor neurone disease). Charcot has been referred to as "the father of French neurology and one of the world's pioneers of neurology". His work greatly influenced the developing fields of neurology and psychology. He was the "foremost neurologist of late nineteenth-century France" and has been called "the Napoleon of the neuroses". (Wikipedia) Jean-Martin Charcot, né à Paris le 29 novembre 1825 et mort à Montsauche-les-Settons le 16 août 1893, est un clinicien et neurologue français, professeur d'anatomie pathologique, titulaire de la chaire des maladies du système nerveux, membre de l'Académie de médecine (1873) et de l'Académie des sciences (1883). Il est le fondateur avec Guillaume Duchenne de la neurologie moderne, le précurseur de la psychopathologie et l'un des plus grands cliniciens français. Il est également connu comme chef de file de l'École de la Salpêtrière pour ses travaux sur l'hypnose et l'hystérie. (Wikipedia)

        My Wanderings in Persia, with Illustrations, and Map showing the Scientific Frontier in Afghanistan and the Russian Advance in Central Asia; with Author's Routes, etc.

      London: James Blackwood & Co., 1880 - Octavo. Original green decorative cloth, titles gilt and elaborate embossed panelling in black to spine and front cover, pale cream endpapers. Somewhat rubbed and soiled, some light soiling, mild toning, title page and one other leaf a little ragged at the edge, short split on a fold to the map, but overall very good. Frontispiece and 5 other plates, folding map with routes in colour. First edition, uncommon, decidedly so in the cloth. Eight copies only on Copac, OCLC adds just 11 more in libraries worldwide; one copy at auction in the last 40 years. An informative, if slightly gossipy, account of a lengthy sojourn in the region. "Anderson worked for the Indo-European [later Indo-Persian] Telegraph Company in Iran from June 1875 to March 1878; he was based in Shiraz from June to October 1875; then repairing lines from Shiraz to Kazeroon (based in Dashtarjin) until March the following year; Shiraz–Abadeh (Sevund, with leave at Dehbeed and Yazd) March–December 1876; Shiraz from January to March 1877; and finally in Tehran, repairing and establishing telegraph lines with iron poles, as the wooden ones were constantly stolen" (Simpson, "Making their Mark: Foreign Travellers at Persepolis" in Arta, 2009, p. 18).

      N. P: Published for the Subscribers, [1880]., 1880. First edition. First edition. 16mo. Original quarter leather and cloth. raised bands on the spine, titles stamped in gold gilt on the front cover, 239 [1] pp., preface. Ide's account of his brother's life is of great interest for two reasons: 1). It contains one of only a small handful of overland journals written from a woman's point of view (Chapters III - IV), and 2). and is also the only volume published thus far that deals exclusively with an important incident of California history, the Bear Flag Revolt (Chapter V - XVIII). Howes I4 says "The original edition printed on a hand press by the author at 86 years of age was probably small." Streeter Sale V 2967 says "Compiled .... by Simon Ide for the children of his brother and at their expense." Zamorano Eighty 45 says "Copies are now extremely rare." Cowan page 118 says "William B. Ide, the leader of the Bear Flag movement at Sonoma, has received criticisms from many sources, but according to Hubert Howe Bancroft he was a worthy and honest man. His death occurred in California in 1852. This work was set in type by Simon Ide when in his 86th year. Having apparently been issued among difficulties, only a small number was printed and the work is scarce." William B Ide's daughter, who was 18 when she accompanied him from Illinois to California in 1845 provides a classic western experience, to be viewed from a woman's point of view. For example, she describes the rude life and manners of the company's pilot and his son and notes "I was more afraid of these two men than of the wild Indians." Former owner's inked name and date on the front fly leaf, else a fine, bright, tight copy of an important and rare book.

      Paris, Isidore Liseux, Londres, (Paris, Liseux), 1879-1880. - 2 tomes en 6 parties in-16, XXIVpp.-111pp.-portrait - titre-pp.115 à 232 - 1f.-pp. 235 à 371 - Xpp.-190pp. - titre-pp.193 à 370 - 1f.-pp. 373 à 572-1f. Reliés en 6 volumes demi-maroquin orange, coins, dos à nerfs, pièces de titre et de tomaison vert bouteille, têtes or, non rognés. Rare collection complète des six volumes de la traduction d'Alcide Bonneau éditée par Isidore Liseux. C'est la traduction française la plus importante du XIX° siècle, qui passe pour être la première traduction française complète. Malgré quelques erreurs relevées jadis par Apollinaire, elle est d'une bonne tenue littéraire. Poursuivi par la justice après la publication des trois premiers volumes, l'éditeur dut publier sous la fausse adresse de Londres les trois volumes restant, dont l'impression était en cours. La distribution des 2 volumes ou 6 parties est complexe, Vicaire la décrit mal. Nous sommes bien en présence de 2 paginations distinctes, divisées en 6 parties. Première "partie" : Le vieil imprimeur Barbagrigia ; Pietro Aretino à son sapajou ; La vie des religieuses ; La vie des femmes mariées ; La vie des courtisanes - seconde "partie" : Au gentil et honoré messire Bernardo Valdavra Royal modèle de courtoisie ; L'éducation de la Pippa ; Les roueries des hommes ; La Ruffianerie ; note du traducteur. - Tirage limité à 350 exemplaires sur vergé, numérotés pour la première partie. (Vicaire II, 581 - Pia, 1233-1235 - Gay I, 901 : édition mixte franco-latine : c'est-à-dire que certains passages et membres de phrase sont traduits en latin et intercalés dans le français). - Voir aussi catalogue Librairie Cluzel "Aretino et l'Arétin" n°40, qui ne proposait que la 1° partie). - Coins légèrement émoussés, le reste des volumes est frais.
