Some of the plates also depict structures built for the Expositions of 1878 and 1899, including the Gare du Champ de Mars, Pavillon Céramique, Ministère des Travaux Publics, Palais Algérien, Maison Doulton, and Pavillon du Caz from the Exposition Universelle of 1878, and the Galerie des Machines, Dôme Central, Palais des Beaux-Arts et des Arts Libéraux Pavillon Royaux Fils and Pavillon de la Grande Tuilerie de Bourgogne from the Exposition Universelle of 1889.

         FANNY L. CAVARLY VS. JAS. H. CAMPFIELD. IN CASE. ARGUMENT FOR PLAINTIFF, BY JAMES S. EWING. AT OTAWA, ILL., FEB. 4, A.D. 1885.

      1881?], [Ottawa, Illinois?: 1881 - The '5' in '1885', evidently a printer's error, has been changed in red pen to a '1'. The printed document states that the case was brought in McLean County. That too is evidently incorrect: In the same red pen, 'McLean' has been changed to 'La Salle.' Original printed wrappers, stitched, 40pp. Mild wear, Very Good. Mr. Ewing gives a truly inspired jury oration, which resulted in a verdict, no mean sum in those days, for his client, an "orphan girl." Dr. Campfield, who purportedly treated her for "prolapsus uteri," lives "in style in his elegant residence, on the banks of Fox River; effects the airs of a desperado and threatens to kill." We have located only one other copy, at the Chicago History Museum. It has 39 pages, with our red-penned changes already printed. Ewing argues "that the defendant took advantage of her helplessness, and while in a state of insensibility, produced by some hellish drug, without her consent or knowledge, had sexual intercourse with her, which resulted in her after pregnancy and the birth of her child. These treatments were repeated three times-- What drug was used we do not know. We have surmised that the drug used was Ascitic Ether," which tastes good and "produces insensibility rapidly." The baby died after a few hours.OCLC 270740646 [1- Chicago History Museum] [as of September 2016]. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         Bengal Paper Mill Co., Ltd., Sign

      (Calcutta, India: Bengal Paper Mill Co.), n.d.. Papermaking. metal sign (30 by 19.5 inches) backed by wood. A large metal sign advertising the Bengal Paper Mill Co.'s "Well Known Quality Tiger Brand Papers." John C. Eddison states that the company was established during the 1880s by members of the British business community in Calcutta. It was founded "at a time when the outlook for Indian papermaking seemed very promising," just after the British government announced, in 1881, a policy of giving trade preference to Indian made articles. In the 1890s, the company developed a "workable process for the pulping of bamboos." The company fared less well after World War II. See Eddison, A Case Study in Industrial Development--The Growth of the Indian Pulp and Paper Industry (Cambridge, Massachusetts: Center for International Studies of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1955), 215-25. Eddison also noted that the company submitted semi-annual reports to the Registrar of Joint Stock Companies in Calcutta from 1893 to 1953. In 1971, the company was still listed in the Times of India Directory & Yearbook (Bombay: Times of India Press, 1971), 746. Although there are rust spots, mainly along the edges, the sign is quite legible. Its color logo, at the center of the sign, is in fine condition.

(And:) The Geographical Journal including the Proceedings of the Royal Geographical Society. London: R.G.S., 1893-1948. Vols. I-CXII only (in 109 volumes). Vols. 1-28: contemporary red/purple half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, spines gilt; vols. 29-112: original blue cloth, or contemporary cloth, gilt. Institutional bookplates to some pastedowns; blindstamps to some title-pages; ink stamps to some plates and maps. Complete set of all periodical publications of the Royal Geographical Society 1831 through 1948, comprising 203 volumes with thousands of plates and maps, many folding. - Founded in 1830, the Royal Geographical Society spearheaded efforts to accurately map and describe every corner of the known world. As lesser-known regions of the globe such as Africa and the Middle East began to emerge as major centres of global trade in the 19th century, the Society funded thousands of European expeditions to these areas in an effort to promote British commercial and scientific interests. Explorers of the Arabian Peninsula such as Henry St. John Philby (aka "Sheikh Abdullah"), Percy Cox, Theodore Bent, Gertrude Bell, Wilfred Thesiger (aka "Mubarak bin London"), and Bertram Thomas all reported directly to the Royal Geographical Society, and their accounts, often with accompanying maps, contributed enormously to the western interest in the economy and geography of these regions. Macro's "Bibliography of the Arabian Peninsula" - the only major attempt to date to itemize the most important publications on the Arab World - draws heavily on the papers published in the Journal of the Royal Geographical Society, especially for 19th century descriptions of the Arabian Gulf and its inhabitants. - Collected here is the entire run of publications issued by the Royal Geographical Society up to the mid-20th century - a full 203 volumes containing thousands of seminal articles, plates, and maps chronicling the modern mapping of the world. Its importance for the Arabian Peninsula is well-reflected in Macro's bibliography. Wilson's 1833 "Memorandum Respecting the Pearl Fisheries in the Persian Gulf", James Wellsted's "Observations on the Coast of Arabia between Rás Mohammed and Jiddah" (1836), and Felix Haig's "Memoirs of the Southeast Coast of Arabia" (1839) are among the earliest reports on those regions. Georg Wallin delivered a valuable report on the Hajj to the Society in 1854 in his "Narrative of a Journey from Cairo to Medina and Mecca"; William Palgrave is today regarded as one of the most important European explorers of the Peninsula, and his "Observations made in Central, Eastern and Southern Arabia, 1862-3" is found in the 1864 volume of the Journal. A lesser-known figure is Lewis Pelly, who in the Proceedings of the Royal Geographical Society (1863) delivered a remarkably prescient lecture, "On the Geographical Capabilities of the Persian Gulf as an Area of Trade" - highlighting the future importance of the tribes and territories of the Gulf as global commercial centres, from Kuwait down to the coasts mainly controlled by "Arab pirates". He also contributed "A Visit to the Wahabee Capital, Central Arabia" (18 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Schliemann's account of his excavations at Hissarlik/Troy. A shameless self-publicist, motivated more perhaps by his desire for glory than his love of historical truth, Schliemann has been criticised for the brutality of his methods, however Carl Blegen, director of the excavations at the site 1932-8, defended him from his anachronistic detractors; "Although there were some regrettable blunders, those criticisms are largely coloured by a comparison with modern techniques of digging; but it is only fair to remember that before 1876 very few persons, if anyone, yet really knew how excavations should properly be conducted. There was no science of archaeological investigation, and there was probably no other digger who was better than Schliemann in actual field work" (quoted in Rubalcaba and Cline, Digging for Troy, p.30)

". bietet die vorliegende Sammlung nur Zeichnungen von Möbeln jener Gattung, die nach Entwürfen der hervorragendsten Architekten und Fabrikanten Deutschlands ausgeführt sind (Ihne & Stegmüller, Kayser & v.

         THE UNITED SERVICES COLLEGE CHRONICLE: 16 issues plus "Appendix & 'Tarass Boolba'," each in gilt-lettered, red cloth-covered chemise; 9 with poems and/or prose by Kipling (one also edited by him); one issue with text of speech given by Kipling at the school; the rest with notices of or about Kipling.

      United Services College, 1881 - 1904., [Bideford, North Devon: - The first edition and only edition of each issue. Kipling attended United Services College, a preparatory school at "Westward Ho!" in the village of Bideford, North Devon, from January 1878 to July 1882. (His experiences there formed the background for his 1898 STALKY & CO.) He was appointed editor of the school paper, "The United Services College Chronicle"; issues numbers four to ten, published between June 30 1881 and July 24 1882, appeared under his editorship and contain items by him (many of which he never authorized for re-publication). Kipling left school at sixteen to join his family in Lahore, India, and took a post with the Civil & Military Gazette but occasionally sent poems and stories written for Indian newspapers back to his old school paper. The Chronicles issued after he left school include items attributed to him that were not signed by him by name, leading to much debate as to whether they should be included among his works. [Richards, pp.514-5]. **PLEASE NOTE: we include issues with content attributed to Kipling by F. V. Livingston in her 1927 bibliography that Richards omits in his 2010 work because, though Richards bases his attributions on a bound volume of the Chronicle in which Kipling signed his contributions and omits several Livingston attributions based on corrections Kipling made to a copy of her work, he does concede that Kipling's lack of attribution and/or corrections could have been the result of either faulty memory or the wish to suppress certain items.** The issues included herein are as follows: NO. 7, DEC. 5, 1881: issued under Kipling's editorship; includes "Told in the Dormitory [Part I]" (verse), signed "A****d T******n" and "Waytinge" (verse), unsigned [Richards C7]. Also "Answers to Correspondence" (prose), signed "Ed."; "Literary & Debating Society" (prose), unsigned; and "A rabid effusion, in the style of 'The Hunting of the Snark'." (verse), unsigned [Livingston VII]. NO. 13, MARCH 25, 1883: Notice of Dunsterville as Caliban (prose), unsigned, most of the text not present due to a flaw in the printing; "Modus Vevendi" (verse) [Livingston XIII]. NO. 16, OCT. 15, 1883: "The Song of the Exiles" (verse), signed "Gigs" [Richards C18]. NO. 27, APRIL 12, 1886: "The City of Delhi Is Hushed and Still" (verse), signed "O.U.S.C." [Livingston XXVII ".probably by Kipling"]. NO. 28, JULY 2, 1886: "The Battle of Assye" (verse), unsigned [Richards C122]. Also a review of the Indian (and only) edition of "Echoes," which prints in entirety the poem "London Town" as well as 19 lines from "The Flight of the Bucket" and 12 from "The Cursing of Stephen" [Livingston XXVIII]. NO. 31, MARCH 7, 1887: "City of Dreadful Night" (prose), signed "R.K." [Richards C72]. NO. 35, DEC. 15, 1887: "Dis Aliter Visum" (verse), signed "R.K. (O.U.S.C.)" [Richards C60].

         'Australian Contingent on their way to make History. Novr. 1914' (a large panoramic photograph of a detailed drawing - albeit an artist's impression - of this momentous event, signed in the image in the bottom right-hand corner 'H. Dalton Hall RN / Glenelg')

      The sepia-toned gelatin silver photograph (image size 200 x 557 mm) is behind a wood-veneer window mount (visible surface 379 x 689 mm) extensively captioned in white ink in a calligraphic hand with the names of the vessels in the fleet (46 by his reckoning). It is surrounded by a gilt fillet, behind glass, in the original wooden frame (external dimensions 527 x 832 mm); the original brown paper backing on the verso has been largely removed, but overall, it is a very impressive piece in fine condition throughout. Harold Dalton Hall (1881-1946) was 'a South Australian marine artist and model maker who worked in oil, watercolour, pen and ink. Harold joined the South Australian Navy and worked on the colonial naval vessel "Protector" as a cabin boy in 1894. While Dalton Hall undertook some training with Adelaide art teacher James Ashton, he was largely self taught' (South Australian Maritime Museum). The artwork commemorates the departure from Albany of the First Detachment of the Australian and New Zealand Imperial Expeditionary Forces 'which were later to become collectively known as the Anzacs. Merchant ships carrying troops from New Zealand, Queensland, New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria departed from Albany on 1 November 1914, together with three cruisers HMA Ships "Melbourne" and "Sydney" and the HMS "Minotaur". They were joined at sea two days later by two ships carrying troops from South Australia and Western Australia, along with the Japanese cruiser, HIJMS "Ibuki"' (Albany Convoy Commemorative Event). Only about a third of the convoy, carrying almost 30,000 men and 8000 horses, is visible in Hall's unrealistic depiction of the scene, but the value of this piece - surely a relatively expensive production in its time - lies much more in the light it throws on the contemporary treatment of such a significant current event.

         GIORNALE PER I BAMBINI. Direttore: Ferdinando Martini (in seguito Carlo Collodi).

      Roma, Tip. Bencini/Bodoniana, 1881-1883. In-4 p. (mm. 313x224), 3 voll., legatura in tela edit. figurata: blu, beige e rossa (con aloni, risg. rifatti), pp. (4),416; (2),848,(4); (6),848; molto ben illustrati da xilografie nel t. e con qualche tavola a colori applic. alla pag. in un volume (1882). In questo celebre e fortunato periodico per l'infanzia, diretto con formula nuova e anticonformista da Ferdinando Martini, è contenuta l'edizione pre-originale di "Pinocchio", apparsa a puntate a partire dal n. 1 (Anno I), 7 luglio 1881 e conclusasi con il n. 4 (Anno III), 25 gennaio 1883. Il romanzo sarebbe stato poi pubblicato da Paggi a Firenze, nel 1883, in un volume illustrato da Enrico Mazzanti. La prima parte, con il titolo "La storia di un burattino", ebbe quindi inizio nel primo numero del giornale e continuò fino al n. 17 del 27 ottobre 1881. La seconda, con il titolo "Le avventure di Pinocchio", riprese solo il 16 febbraio 1882 (n. 7) e fu portata a termine il 25 gennaio 1883 (n. 4). Le puntate del romanzo compaiono su 26 numeri del giornalino, i.e: 1, 2, 5, 7, 10, 11, 16, 17 (Anno I) - 7/12, 18/22, 47, 48, 50/52 (Anno II) - 3 e 4 (Anno III). Nell'anno III (1883), oltre alla fine di "Pinocchio", Collodi pubblicò il racconto “PIPI' o lo scimiottino color di rosa”, che apparve (in 5 capitoli) nei nn. 33 - 34 - 47 - 48 - 50. Si può sostenere che se non ci fosse stato il "Giornale per i Bambini", Collodi non avrebbe mai scritto l'immortale "bambinata", quello che è universalmente stimato il capolavoro della letteratura per l'infanzia di ogni paese e di ogni lingua. L'assoluta rarità di questa edizione è dovuta all'estrema deperibilità di un giornalino dato in lettura ai bambini. Cfr. Parenti “Rarità bibliografiche dell'Ottocento",I, p. 138-48 - Biaggioni "Pinocchio: cent'anni d'avventure illustrate", pp. 43-45: "La pubblicazione del testo di Collodi è accompagnata nel primo periodo di 8 puntate da immagini di repertorio tratte prevalentemente da pubblicazioni straniere per l'infanzia; mentre nelle puntate successive il materiale di repertorio è intercalato alle prime figure di Pinocchio realizzate espressamente da Ugo Fleres" - Pallottino "Storia dell'Illustr. italiana", p. 171: "Ugo Fleres (1857-1939) è il capostipite di quell'esercito di illustratori pinocchieschi che, indipendentemente dalle loro qualità, dall'incontro con "Pinocchio" finirannno per ricevere una sorta di 'aura', cosi' che nelle loro biografie verrà sempre premesso che 'illustrarono una edizione di "Pinocchio". Nel ns. esemplare: il 1881 ha la p. 375/376 ben restaur. per angolo infer. mancante (anche di testo) - il vol. del 1882 presenta qualche difetto (prima pag. del n. 1 restaur. per manc. dei margini ma non di testo; tracce d'uso; qualche alone) - il 1883 ha la p. 17/18 restaurata per manc. ai soli margini bianchi. A parte questi difetti, la raccolta è in buono stato di conservazione.

         Bengal Paper Mill Co., Ltd., Sign

      Bengal Paper Mill Co.) n.d., (Calcutta, India - metal sign (30 by 19.5 inches) backed by wood. A large metal sign advertising the Bengal Paper Mill Co.'s "Well Known Quality Tiger Brand Papers." John C. Eddison states that the company was established during the 1880s by members of the British business community in Calcutta. It was founded "at a time when the outlook for Indian papermaking seemed very promising," just after the British government announced, in 1881, a policy of giving trade preference to Indian made articles. In the 1890s, the company developed a "workable process for the pulping of bamboos." The company fared less well after World War II. See Eddison, A Case Study in Industrial Development--The Growth of the Indian Pulp and Paper Industry (Cambridge, Massachusetts: Center for International Studies of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1955), 215-25. Eddison also noted that the company submitted semi-annual reports to the Registrar of Joint Stock Companies in Calcutta from 1893 to 1953. In 1971, the company was still listed in the Times of India Directory & Yearbook (Bombay: Times of India Press, 1971), 746. Although there are rust spots, mainly along the edges, the sign is quite legible. Its color logo, at the center of the sign, is in fine condition.

First edition in German, preceded by the English edition a year earlier. Schliemann's account of his excavations at Hissarlik/Troy. A shameless self-publicist, motivated more perhaps by his desire for glory than his love of historical truth, Schliemann has been criticised for the brutality of his methods, however Carl Blegen, director of the excavations at the site 1932-8, defended him from his anachronistic detractors; "Although there were some regrettable blunders, those criticisms are largely coloured by a comparison with modern techniques of digging; but it is only fair to remember that before 1876 very few persons, if anyone, yet really knew how excavations should properly be conducted. There was no science of archaeological investigation, and there was probably no other digger who was better than Schliemann in actual field work" (quoted in Rubalcaba and Cline, Digging for Troy, p.30) [Attributes: First Edition]
