Contemporary binding by V. Champs in three-quarter dark blue morocco, marbled boards and endpapers, flat spines with gilt titles, ornaments, and double fillets. (#7763) Le Monument du costume was written by the prolific novelist and author on many subjects Restif de La Bretonne (1734-1806), noted for his licentious accounts of French society before the Revolution and his works, many printed by his own hand, for their typography and illustrations. In this one, both text and plates were beautifully engraved, the plates by Sigmund Freudenberger (1745-1801) and Jean Michel Moreau (1741-1814). As the eighteenth century editions became rare, Le Monument appeared in a few more during the later nineteenth century. Conquet issued his in elegant limited editions, varying by the number of states included for each plate, all prepared by engraver Henri Dubouchet (1833-1909).

        Washington Square. Illustrated by George du Maurier

      New York, Harper 1881., 1881. FIRST EDITION. Foolscap octavo, pp.266; 6, adverts. Publisher's original pictorial green cloth stamped in dark brown and gilt, coated brown endpapers. A tight copy with sound paper joints; some pencil notes to flyleaf. Cloth is bright and would be fine but for a vertical crease to upper cover. Nonetheless an attractive copy of an elusive first edition. Henry James classic short novel is a deceptively simple tragicomedy that recounts the conflict between a dull but sweet daughter and her brilliant, domineering father. The book is often compared to Jane Austen's work for the clarity and grace of its prose and its intense focus on family relationships. BAL [10551], Edel and Laurence [A15a]

        LIFE AND TIMES OF FREDERICK DOUGLASS, WRITTEN BY HIMSELF. HIS EARLY LIFE AS A SLAVE, HIS ESCAPE FROM BONDAGE, AND HIS COMPLETE HISTORY TO THE PRESENT TIME

      Hartford, Conn.: Park Publishing Co., 1881. Revised and enlarged edition of the author's autobiography (first published in 1845). 8vo. xii, xv-xxiii, 13-516 pp. Frontispiece portrait of the author. Inscribed by Douglass on the front endpaper "To Mrs. Briggs / with the kindest regard / of the author / 1882." Douglass (1818-1895) was born a slave in Talbot County, Maryland, escaping to the north in 1838 to become a leading force in the abolition movement while eventually earning his reputation as a newspaper editor and skilled orator. The first version of his autobiography, issued in 1845, was titled Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an African Slave, first revised for an 1855 edition, My Bondage and My Freedom, then published in the edition offered here, much expanded. It includes recollections of meetings with Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, John Brown, and Harriet Beecher Stowe, among others, and an account of his post-Civil War career. Douglass died in Washington, D.C., in 1895. The recipient of the book, "Mrs. Briggs," may have been pioneering woman journalist Emily Edson Briggs (1830-1910; cf. "Notable American Women" I, pp. 242-243); several letters written by her to Douglass in the 1880s are preserved and she mentioned him a half dozen times in her book Olivia's Letters (Neale Publishing Co., 1906; Krick 53: "There is also material on blacks in Congress and on the movement for female suffrage"). Two signatures a little pulled, but a very good copy. Original rust cloth (rubbed, spine ends a little frayed), gilt spine title. (#6344)

        Street Incidents

      1881. THOMSON, John.Street Incidents.London: Sampson, Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1881.First abridged edition of the ?"first concerted body of work to deal with life on the streets,?" with 21 mounted brown-tone Woodburytypes from the original glass plates.?"Motivated in part by a reforming desire, to alleviate the wretched living conditions of the urban working class, but also by the Victorian urge to typify,?" John Thomson produced this ?"pioneering work of social documentation in photographs?" (Parr & Badger, 39-40). During 1877-78, he created 36 photographs for the monthly parts of Street Life in London, a ground-breaking social commentary, with text by radical socialist journalist Adolphe Smith. Thomson and Smith approached their subjects like ethnographers and anthropologists, ?"venturing into London?'s poorest areas, interviewing [and photographing] their subjects and writing about them as ?'characters?' or ?'types,?" in Thomson?'s words, ?"the true types of the London poor?" (Parr & Badger). ?"Few photographs of the London streets had been taken before Thomson?'s journey around them, and even fewer were published with the intent of informing public opinion… To combine photographs of the London streets, and to place the poor, the working classes, criminals, and the homeless at the center of the images, was a new departure in photographic documentation… Perhaps the most striking feature of Street Life is that the images have been reproduced photomechanically by the Woodburytype process from the photographer?'s original dry-plate negatives. The resultant prints give a strikingly sharp, almost three-dimensional representation… The reason Street Life has ultimately succeeded as the first social documentary photography is that its primary aim was to inform: it was never the intention of Smith or Thomson to claim the literary and artistic high ground… Rather, they aimed to transfer the experiences of the poor into the homes of the comfortable middle class, and to make them aware of a different, harsher reality?" (Ovenden, 78-88). The 12 monthly parts of Street Life were reissued in book form in 1878, and also in a shorter version under the title, Street Incidents (1881), with 21 of the photographs (this edition). ?"Structurally, Street Life is a combination of street portraiture… and interviews with the subjects. Thus it was the direct predecessor of the journalistic picture stories that would appear in illustrated magazines from that period onward?" (Parr & Badger). ?"It was the first published collection of social documentary photographs anywhere in the world?" (Museum of London).See Frizot, 348-50; Parr & Badger, 48; Truthful Lens 169; Open Book, 42-43.Embrowning to title page and last page, an occasional very faint finger mark. Light rubbing to joints and spine ends. Photographs fine. A very desirable copy of this first photo-documentary. Rare.

        Cameos from the Silver-Land; or the Experiences of a Young Naturalist in the Argentine Republic, in 2 volumes, complete

      London: John Van Voorst, 1881-82. First edition.. Front and rear free endpapers on both volumes show some browning, light scattered foxing to the frontis matter of each volume, the text and attractive cloth bindings are bright and clean; a tight copy in near fine condition.. Pp. xv, (1, errata), 436; xv, 527; large color folding map of Argentina at the end of volume 1. Publisher's original blue-green cloth stamped in blind on the front and rear covers, spine lettered in gilt and with gilt panel lines and other gilt decorations, 8vo (220 x 150 mm). The first third of White's work is a fairly dry rendition of facts and figures about Argentina, but the narrative gets livelier when he begins to travel. At one stop, the city of San Juan, he visited a Señor Alvarez, where he was "confronted in the patio of his residence by four Condors, one puma, three eagles and a Patagonian hare." It was in San Juan that he also viewed the world's most expensive volume of children's clip-art: "In the house of a medical gentleman . . . I was grieved to be the witness of a literary sacrilege, such as I never before beheld. The floor of the drawing room was strewn with the wreck of Gould's magnificent work on the Toucans; and I trembled lest that the Trochilidae, which was at hand in a bookcase, should share the same fate: these splendid tomes, the gift of well-known English ornithologists from the West Indies on their visit to San Juan, leaving their natural use, had degenerated into nursery playthings." In the midst of his wanderings White did pay special attention to the birds, and published a detailed account of his collections in Proceedings of the Zoological Society in 1882. White remained in Argentina, and one interesting aspect of this book is that although bound and published in London, the text was printed in Buenos Aires. With the bookplate of Perry Alport Molteno, lawyer, shipping magnate and liberal MP (1906-18) born in Cape Colony, South Africa. See also Ripley, 309; Wood, 625; and Zimmer, 672.
