      published by the author, 1880. With 121 hand-colored lithographic plates by J.G. Keuelmans. Half-crushed morocco, gilt edges, covers spotted, spine a bit faded; occasional light scattered spotting, some offsetting to text leaves, but overall a wonderful copy from the library of K.A. Baird with his ownership inscription dated 1925 on the paste-down. First edition of one of the most attractively illustrated of Keulemans' works, limited to 250 copies. In the preface, Shelley acknowledges the contributions of Keuleman (1842-1912) and praises his illustrations for their accuracy and artistry, specifically pointing out that Keuleman's notes on sunbirds at Prince's Island were incorporated into the text. "An excellent monograph of an interesting family of birds, with descriptions in Latin and English, critical notes, and discussions of habits, etc., from accounts by many different observers. A total of 138 species of the group are recognized" (Zimmer, II, 588). Shelley (1840-1910), geologist and ornithologist, was the nephew of Percy Bysshe Shelley.

        Vollständige Reihe der Schubert'schen naturgeschichtlichen Tafelwerke (zur Zoologie, Botanik, Geologie & Paläontologie sowie Humanbiologie) aus dem Verlag Schreibers. Zusammen 4 Bände.

      Esslingen, ohne Jahr, aber um 1880.. Folio. Illustiertes Org.-Ganz- bzw. Halbleinen mit Rückenprägung (Ecken und Kanten nur unwesentlich berieben, lediglich der Band zum Pflanzenreich stärker). Mit zahlreichen, oft doppelblattgroßen farblithographischen Tafeln, jeweils komplett. Von ungewöhnlich guter Gesamterhaltung und jeweils vollständig. Eine detaillierte Kollation kann auf Wunsch mitgeteilt werden. Nissen, ZBI 3761 (Tierreich), BBI 1814n (Pflanzenreich). – Die einzelnen Werke in unterschiedlichen Auflagen, jedoch wie immer unter einem Reihentitel zusammengefaßt, wobei die Vortitel das zoologische Werk als ersten Teil, das botanische als zweiten und das geologisch-paläontologische als dritten bezeichnen, jenes über die Anatomie des Menschen dagegen als Nachtrag zum zoologischen Teil benennen. Die Werke basieren im wesentlichen auf den Schriften G. H. Schuberts zur Naturgeschichte (und führen dessen Namen auch im Titel), wurden aber jeweils von bekannten zeitgenössischen Naturwissenschaftlern überarbeitet, z.B. Moritz Willkomm (Botanik) oder G. A. Kenngott (Mineralogie). Die Reihe stellt eine populäre, gleichwohl wissenschaftlich sehr sorgfältig gearbeitete Naturgeschichte dar, welche, in zahlreichen Auflagen erschienen, große Verbreitung in Deutschland fand, aber in sämtlichen Teilen auch in die großen und kleinen Verkehrssprachen des westlichen Kulturkreises übersetzt wurde. Aufgrund der vom Herausgeber beabsichtigten Verwendung als illustrierte Lehrbücher für die Jugend sind unbenutzte und daher von Gebrauchspuren weitgehend verschonte Sets der Reihe mittlerweile jedoch schwer aufzutreiben.

        [COLLECTION OF SEVEN LATER 19th-CENTURY CABINET CARDS AND ONE STEREOVIEW OF SAN ANTONIO PRODUCED BY FRANK HARDESTY AND THE SAN ANTONIO VIEW COMPANY]

      San Antonio, 1880. Seven albumen photographs, most 4 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches, plus one stereoview, measuring approximately 3 3/4 x 6 1/4 inches. Mounted on card. Cards with some edge wear, one more heavily chipped. Some light dampstaining and other marks affecting several images. Good plus. An assemblage of eight attractive images of San Antonio, consisting of seven large cabinet cards and one stereoview, produced during the 1880s by professional photographer Frank Hardesty. Hardesty operated the San Antonio View Company, which published a series of stereoviews of the city by several photographers, including Hardesty himself, H.A. Doerr, and H.L. Bingham, and is most well known for his photographs of Geronimo when he was being held at Fort Sam Houston. There is one stereocard example in this collection, depicting two street vendors, a Mexican and a younger white boy. The cabinet cards consist of larger single versions of the images used for the stereoviews. The photographs include images of a partially completed San Fernando Cathedral, the Missions of San José and Concepción, the Government Tower, San Pedro Park, as well as photographs of two wagons fording the San Antonio River underneath a railroad and of an older woman preparing food. Very interesting and scarce images of later 19th-century San Antonio.

Spine rubbed and worn, with a crack along upper portion of rear joint. Hinges reinforced. Slight stain along top edge, not affecting text. Very good. Baraga's lexicographical masterpiece, still the preferred reference work on the subject. Here the two volumes, published separately, have been bound together. It was among the Indians of Michigan and the adjacent areas that Father Frederic Baraga served as a missionary beginning in 1831. Though in 1853 he was consecrated bishop of Upper Michigan, he continued his hands-on work among the natives until his death in 1868, making a study of the Chippewa (a.k.a. Ojibwa) language and producing, in addition to this dictionary, a grammar, a catechism, a volume of sermons, and a volume of devotional meditations. Pilling ALGONQUIAN calls Baraga's dictionary, coupled with his Ojibwa grammar, "perhaps the most important contribution to Indian philology made hitherto." AYER INDIAN LINGUISTICS (CHIPPEWA) 6.

The photographs measure 5-1/2 x 4 inches, and are mounted on pages 9-3/4 x 7-1/2 inches. Bound in 3/4 green pebble-grain morocco, a.e.g., title stamped in gilt on upper cover, some wear to extremities and occasional foxing to the mounting pages; the photographs are generally fine. Photograph album containing 17 mounted and two loose albumen prints of clergymen. 14 are captioned images of various American Episcopal State Bishops, two are of lesser divines, two are unidentified, and one, Henry Forrester, appears in non-clerical dress in a photo bearing the stamp of a Las Vegas photographer. 1 vols. The photographs measure 5-1/2 x 4 inches, and are mounted on pages 9-3/4 x 7-1/2 inches. Original Photographs of 19th Century American Clergymen. Each of the mounted photographs is enclosed with a decorative ink border, and hand-lettered caption showing the individual's name and office. Among these are: Benjamin B. Smith, Bishop of Kentucky, 1832--; John Williams, Bishop of Connecticut, 1851--; Horatio Potter, Bishop of New York, 1854--; William H. Odenheimer, Bishop of New Jersey, 1859-1879; Alfred Lee, Bishop of Delaware, 1841--; William B. Stevens, Bishop of Pennsylvania, 1862--; Joseph C. Talbot, Bishop of Indiana, 1860--; Daniel S. Tuttle, Bishop of Utah, 1867--; Benjamin H. Paddock, Bishop of Massachusetts, 1873--; William H. Hare, Bishop of Niobrara [Southern Dakotas], 1873--; and others. Most are shown in full-length images, and all are in clerical garb. The album itself bears a London stationer's label on the rear pastedown, and is less than half full, despite the "Vol. 1" on the cover. It would be interesting to know the genesis of this effort, which was obviously undertaken with much thought and care.
