        A Great Number of Mysterious Murders Revealed: The Life of Anson...

      1881. 9 Pages of Woodcut Plates - Illustrated Account of Anson Bunker, "The Bloody Hand" - Not in McDade [Bunker, Anson (1818-c.1873)]. A Great Number of Mysterious Murders Revealed: The Life of Anson Bunker, "The Bloody Hand," The Perpetrator of No Less Than Fifteen Cold-Blooded Murders, Amongst Which Were the Great Nathan Murder of New York City, And Those of His Three Wives, and Several Others in Various Parts of the Country. His Horrible Confessions and Terrible Doom. Philadelphia: Barclay & Co., Publishers, [copyright 1881]. [ii], [19]-95 pp. Nine pages of woodcut plates. Octavo (9-1/4" x 6"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in pictorial wrappers. Light soiling, some edgewear and a few tiny stains, final few leaves partially detached but secure. Light toning, internally clean. * Later issue. First published in 1875, this is a notably lurid biography. The most prominent victim was Nathan, a leading member of New York's Jewish, financial and philanthropic communities. This murder was front-page news in New York, and it was never solved. Bunker was not a suspect, but he is presented as a likely murderer in this account. People Anson actually murdered include his three wives and other victims in Canada, St. Louis, Cincinnati, Louisville, New Orleans and elsewhere. Bunker's adventures in the Confederate Army are also described. The plates are notably lurid. One depicts a botched bank robbery in Kentucky in which Bunker and his associate disguised themselves as African-Americans. Another shows a pre-teen Bunker and four other boys murdering a man in New York City's notorious "Five Points." No copies of this imprint on OCLC. Not in McDade..

Publisher's blue cloth, gilt lettered spines. The complete coleoptera section of this highly important work on the fauna and flora of Central America. 'The best example of an entomologist who devoted his main efforts to the study of exotic faunas was H.W. Bates (1825-1892). In his early career he spent more than ten years in South America, partly in company with the famous A.R. Wallace; he was a great general biologist, the first to discover the form of mimicry in butterflies that afterwards was named after him. He worked on different insect groups, with his first paper published in 1843. After 1870 he almost exclusively turned to Coleoptera and may be termed the father of coleopterology not only for tropical America, as manifested by his volumes on Carabidae, Longicornia, and Lamellicornia in Godman & Salvin's 'Biologia Centrali-Americana' (Smith, R.T., History of Entomology p. 145). The whole work was published in 215 parts in 63 volumes from 1875-1915. It was 'the most thorough study of the animals, plants, and human beings of Central America ever attempted' (Nature in the New World p. 187). The zoological section described 38,637 animals, approximately half as new species and half as new genera. A very fine copy. B.M. (Nat. Hist) VI, p. 380..

Holmes was part of the generation that had sat at the feet of Darwin and Spencer… When Holmes asserted in his Common Law that 'the law finds its philosophy (in) the nature of human needs,' he was sounding the clarion of 20th-century jurisprudence… If the 19th century was one of Legal Darwinism, the 20th was, ultimately, to be that of Mr. Justice Holmes" (The Law in America, 190-91).

        Handbook of the Bombay Presidency. With an Account of Bombay City

      London: John Murray,, 1881. Second Edition. Most Carefully Revised on the Spot, and for the Most Part Rewritten. Octavo. Original red combed cloth, title in gilt to the spine and the upper board, blind panelling to both boards, edges sprinkled red, grey advertising endpapers. 4 folding maps, the general map of the presidency in an end-pocket. 50 pages of advertisements dated 1888-9 at the rear, and 4 pages of advertisements for Stanfords after the half-title. Lightly monsooned, boards a little mottled, the cloth a touch cockled, spine sunned, very minor damping to the front endpapers and just touching the exterior of the map in the pocket, contemporary pencilled ownership inscription to the half-title, and notes to the verso of the front free endpaper, text-block clean and sound, overall remains a very good copy. First edition, Murray published A Handbook for India, comprising separate volumes on Madras and Bombay in 1859, this "Second Edition" was "so completely re-written that it might fairly be called a new book" (Preface). This an uncommon book, COPAC listing just 6 copies. The text was originally written by the diplomat and orientalist E.B. Eastwick, whose family had "a long history of service with the East India Company" (ODNB). Ill health forced Eastwick to leave India for employment at the East India College at Haileybury. He was subsequently appointed a Political Assistant at the India Office, and accompanied a number of diplomatic missions overseas. In his retirement "he devoted himself to literary work … [writing] several interesting handbooks on various cities of India" and making translations of Sa'di's Gulistan (The Rose Garden) and Kashifi's Anvar-i Suhaili (The Light of Canopus). He died in 1883. Rarely encountered complete, and desirable thus.
