        THE POEMS AND STORIES OF FITZ-JAMES O'BRIEN. Collected and Edited, with a Sketch of the Author, by William Winter

      Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1881.. Octavo, pp. [1-2: blank] [i-v] vi-viii [ix] x-xi [xii-xv] xvi-xxviii [xxix-xxxi] xxxii-lxii [1-3] 4-485 [486: blank] [487-488: blank leaf excised or pasted under rear endpaper], flyleaf at front, inserted frontispiece (portrait of the author) with tissue guard, three additional inserted plates, one with tissue guard, inserted facsimile, other illustrations in the text, original decorated dark blue cloth, front and rear panels ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in gold and ruled in blind, brown coated endpapers. First edition. The author's posthumously published only book, collecting material first published in periodicals in the late 1850s and early 1860s. 994 copies of the 1530 printed were bound and the remaining sheets were junked three years after publication. O'Brien (1828-1862) was an important contributor to the type of fantasy tale exemplified by Poe and Bierce. His finest and best known story, "The Diamond Lens," is included in this collection. O'Brien's "importance rests on a handful of brilliantly original sf tales, which were influential not only on subsequent sf but also on the development of the short-story genre." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. [884]. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 1-33, 1-34 and 1-35; (1981) 1-132; (1987) 1-72; (1995) 1-72; and (2004) II-825. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 140.

      - [Klein-Schwechat: 1881]. An elaborate album of photographs of drawings of the celebrated brewery at Klein-Schwechat, founded in 1632, and today one of the leading breweries of Austria, producing a lager, a light smooth premium beer called Hopfenperle, and a super-premium called Steffl. The album was prepared for the renowned Viennese brewer August Deiglmayer (1827-83), who was at that time, managing director of the brewery and one of the great innovators of 19th century brewing. Deiglmayer spent much of his professional career at the Klein-Schwechat brewery. The drawings were executed at the request of Georg Wieninger (1832-87), scion of the Schärding family of brewers. Reproduced here in photographs, the drawings depict a number of the imperial-style buildings of the brewery, set around a series of courtyards, which today still more resembles a grand country estate more than a brewery. The first plate consists of a calligraphic title "Erinnerung an Klein-Schwechat" in a hop-vine border. Each has a caption in manuscript. In fine condition. Preserved in the original box. ? Jackson, The New World Guide to Beer, pp. 192-93.

        China Sea. Gulf of Siam. China Sea. Gulf of Siam.

      Published at the Admiralty, 1st. April, 1881, 1922. Large corrections to 23rd Dec. 1923. Small corrections to 1932., London, - Admiralty chart of the Gulf of Thailand Engraved chart, including tidal information, compass roses, soundings, seabed notations, currents, sandbanks, shoals, lighthouses and beacons picked out in yellow and red, with inland elevations. Detailed chart of the Gulf of Thailand.The British Hydrographic Office was founded in 1795 by George III, who appointed Alexander Dalrymple as the first Hydrographer to the Admiralty. The first charts were produced in 1800. Unlike the U. S. Coast Survey the Hydrographic Office was given permission to sell charts to the public and they produced a great number of sea charts covering every corner of the globe. Most of the Admiralty charts produced by the Hydrographic Office delineated coastline as well as high and low water marks and record depth of water as established by soundings. In addition these charts included information on shoals, reefs, and other navigational hazards that plagued mariners across the world. Thanks to the innovations of Sir Francis Beaufort, who developed the Beaufort Scale of wind strength, the British Hydrographic Office became one of the leading producers of sea charts. In fact, such was their accuracy that the phrase 'Safe as an Admiralty Chart' was coined. 1070 by 710mm. (42.25 by 28 inches).

Dark green, blind stamped cloth, titles stamped in gold gilt on the spine, xii [2], 274 pp., frontispiece [portraits of Chief Joseph and Brig. General Howard], frontispieces separated by tissue, signatures of Chief Joseph and Gen. Howard in facsimile, preface, two maps, [one folding map at end of text]. Both Chief Joseph and General Howard were noteworthy men. Howard was a distinguished commander during the Civil War, and led troops at First Bull Run, Fair Oaks, where he received a wound that led to the amputation of his right arm. Eventually he arrived in Washington, D.C. where he worked to make his own church racially integrated, and helped to found an all-black college, named Howard University in his honor. Chief Joseph was more a spiritual leader than military leader, but it was his military campaign that brought him lasting fame. The Nez Perce War was fought in a masterful way by the Indians as they retreated from the advancing U.S. Army. The outcome was never in doubt as the Nez Perce were outnumbered ten to one, and after three months the Nez Perce surrendered and were shipped to Oklahoma. In 1885 they were allowed to return to Idaho, but Chief Joseph was separated from his people and kept in Washington state where he died in 1904. He never gave up speaking of the injustices done to his people. His famous speech of surrender his still often quoted and ends with the sentence, "From where the sun now stands I will fight no more forever." Front and rear endpapers replaced, covers bright and lightly rubbed at the extremities, else a solid, clean very good copy.

        Sommernachmittag. Blatt 4 der Folge Vier Landschaften, Opus VII, 1883.

      - Radierung und Aquatinta, 1881. 36,2:52,9 cm. Singer 126, VI (von VI), 3. Ausgabe. – Brillanter, gratiger Abdruck. Auf gelblichem englischem Kupferdruckpapier. Im breiten Rand leicht stockfleckig. Der Maler, Bildhauer und Radierer Max Klinger wird am 18.2.1857 in Leipzig geboren. Er studiert in bei Karl Gussow in Karlsruhe und an der Berliner Akademie. 1879 ist er im Atelier von Emile Wauters in Brüssel tätig. Ab 1888 reist Max Klinger wiederholt nach Italien. 1892 ist er Mitbegründer der Berliner Künstlergruppe "XI". Ab 1893 lebt er in Leipzig. 1894 wird er Mitglied der Berliner Akademie, ab 1897 ist er als Professor an der Leipziger Akademie der Grafischen Künste tätig. Ab 1903 hat er auch einen Wohnsitz in Großjena. Beim neu gegründeten Deutschen Künstlerbund ist Max Klinger Vizepräsident neben Max Liebermann, Fritz von Uhde und Harry Graf Kessler. 1906 wird er Vorsitzender des neuen Villa-Romana-Vereins für das Atelierhaus in Florenz. Ein Grundcharakteristikum der Kunst von Max Klinger ist der Symbolismus mit antik-mythologischen und christlichen Bezügen und Inhalten. Zu seinen malerischen Hauptwerken zählen "Kreuzigung" (1890), "Christus im Olymp" (1897), "Die griechische Geisteswelt" (1909 für Leipzig als Aulagemälde der Universität, zerstört). In seinem bildhauerischen Werk orientiert sich Klinger an der neu entdeckten griechischen Polychromie und er verwendet farbige Steine, so bei "Die neue Salome" (1893) und "Kassandra" (1886-1895). Als sein Hauptwerk gilt hier die monumentale Statue des sitzenden "Beethoven" (1886-1902, Leipzig, Neues Gewandhaus). Den bedeutsamsten Teil des künstlerischen Werks von Max Klinger stellt sein grafisches Werk dar. Es zählt zu den besten Leistungen der deutschen Grafik der Neuzeit, sowohl was das Technische, Künstlerische und Narrative angeht. Max Klinger setzt die Technik der Radierung und der Aquatinta in jeder Hinsicht meisterhaft ein und entwickelt sie weiter. Es entsteht ein umfangreiches Werk von Radierfolgen. Max Klinger stirbt am 4.7.1920 in Großjena bei Naumburg.

        Jabberwocky: Mors Iabrochii.

      Oxford at the University Press: 1881 - FIRST EDITION of this the first Latin translation, 2 leaves, 8vo, printed on rectos only, a trifle browned, minor fraying, Falconoer Madan's copy with his bibliographical note on the verso of the English version, loose . Not located by COPAC. OCLC locates only 5 copies institutionally worldwide. A Latin translation of the famous poem entitled "Mors Iabrochii." in fourteen elegiac stanzas with the printed initials 'A. A. V.' (Augustus Arthur Vansittart) at the foot of the translation. Vansitart (d.1882), a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, first made the translation in March 1872. In keeping with its English counterpart, the poem is in seven verses (28 lines); the English version is followed by 3 numbered footnotes, the Latin by four. Vansittart's translation was subsequently reprinted in Collingwood's 'Life and Letters of Lewis Carroll', and also appeared in the 'Parrish Catalogue'. The present work is in fact a reissue of an extremely scarce pamphlet that contains the poem and its translation headed "Trinity College Lecture Room - March 1872" and issued that same year. Dodgson may have been referring to these when he wrote in his Diaries on 3rd April 1876, "Sent Snark . to Vansittart (in return for his Latin version of Jabberwock)." This not signed by Madan, but the notes are in identical form to those on Doublets (q.v.) (Williams, Madan & Green141)

Il s¿agit de Maurice Weil, le fameux capitaine qu¿on accusa, au moment de l¿affaire Dreyfus, d¿être le complice d¿Esterhazy. Reliure demi-basane, dos lisse, filets dorés. Petits défauts, papier un peu jauni comme toujours sur ce type d¿édition.

        My Journey to Medinah: Describing a Pilgrimage to Medinah performed by the Author disguised as a Mohammedan.

      London: Tinsley Bros., 1881 - Octavo. Original mid-blue sand-grained cloth with title gilt to spine, and gilt device to the front board, decorative frieze in black running across top and tail of boards and spine, floral-patterned endpapers in sanguine. Just a little rubbed, mild string notch to the top edges of the boards. An excellent copy. First edition. The son of a Yorkshire clergyman, Keane ran away to sea at 12, spending some time on a collier brig. "By the age of 18 he had acquired a second mate's certificate. He claimed to have become a certified officer in the P&O line and between 1873 and 1877 to have taken voyages to the Black Sea, the Arctic and China, and to have worked on a sugar plantation in British Guiana" (Howgego). In 1877 he presented himself to the British Consul at Jiddah, and informed him of his intention to visit Mecca. This he did under the name of Haj Mohammed Khan, "wandering the streets quite freely in a bright white tunic and a huge turban". However, after a number of close calls he proceeded to Medina, spending "ten days in the city itself", subsequently returning Britain "to write up his journey, told in such an entertaining style that it amply compensates for the author's lack of conventional scholarly attainments".

        The Formation of Vegetable Mould, through the Action of Worms, with Observations on their Habits

      London: John Murray,, 1881. With illustrations. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, front and rear boards panelled in blind, dark brown endpapers, edges uncut. With the publisher's advertisements. 15 woodcuts to the text. Ownership inscription to front free endpaper verso, a few neat pencil annotations to contents. Spine ends and corners slightly bumped, very faint marking to front board, endpapers lightly foxed, lower edges of sig. R2 and R8 chipped, overall a bright and excellent copy. First edition, first impression, one of the first 1,000 printed from an edition of 2,000, of Darwin's fastest-selling publication. The last publication prior to his death in 1882, it is the culmination of ten years of intensive research and close observation on the interaction of earthworms with their physical environment and their influence on great earth movements. "It was his leitmotif, explaining vast changes by minute incremental events: mountain uplift, evolving life, and now worms transforming the soil" (ODNB). The first printing was said to be 2,000 copies, but copies of the second thousand are noted as such on the title page; otherwise there are no textual differences. It is likely the first and second thousand were printed simultaneously but bound up with the different title pages.

        An English-Arabic Lexicon In which the equivalents for English words and Idiomatic sentences are rendered into literary and colloquial Arabic.

      Kegan Paul & Co., London 1881 - xii 1244 pp., double column per page, +4 pp., in Arabic with a note from Rizkallah Hassoun, title printed in English and Arabic, half-title, contemporary green cloth, rebacked retaining original spine, lightly rubbed, ex-libris stamp on title page, Label of Library of The Dropsie College verso front cover, small tear to right margin of page 3 without any loss, otherwise copy in very good condition. George Percy Badger was a printer by trade. His spent his youth in Malta, and his knowledge of the Maltese dialect was the foundation of his love of Arabic. He spent the greater part of 1835-36 in Beirut improving his Arabic. At Birejik he visited the expedition under Francis Rawdon Chesney for the exploration of the Euphrates Valley. On returning to Malta he was associated with Ahmad Faris Al-Chidyak in the editorial department of the Church Missionary Society’s Institution in Islington, and was ordained as a deacon in 1841 and priest the following year. Because of his intimate knowledge of the East, and unrivalled colloquial knowledge of Arabic, he was chosen by William Howley, Archbishop of Canterbury and by Charles James Blomfield, Bishop of London, as a delegate to the Eastern churches, and more especially the Nestorians of Kurdistan. On retuning to England from his first expedition in 1845, Badger was appointed government chaplain on the Bombay establishment, and a year later he was appointed chaplain at Aden. When Sir James Outram was sent to Aden in 1854 as commandant and political agent, he placed considerable reliance, in dealing with the Arab tribes, on Badger’s knowledge of the native chiefs and on his influence with them. When Outram was appointed commander-inchief of the Persian expedition in November 1856 he appointed Badger as staff chaplain and Arabic interpreter to the force. At the conclusion of the campaign in 1857 Badger received a war medal. In 1860 he was appointed coadjutor to Colonel (Sir) William Marcus Coghlan to settle the differences which had arisen between the sons of the renowned Sayyid Sa’id, the Sayyid Thuwainy, who ruled over Oman, and the Sayyid Majid, who ruled over Sa’id’s East African possessions. Badger returned to England in 1861, and in October accompanied Outram on a visit to Egypt. In 1862 he retired from the service, and devoted himself chiefly to literature. In 1872 he was appointed secretary to Sir Henry Bartle Edward Frere, on a mission to Zanzibar to negotiate the suppression of the slave trade with the Sultan, Sayyid Burgash. In recognition of his services Badger was created D.C.L. by the Archbishop of Canterbury in 1873. Two years later he was appointed to attend the Sultan of Zanzibar during his visit to England. In 1873 he was created a Knight Commander of the Order of the Crown of Italy, and in 1880 the Sultan of Zanzibar nominated him for a Knight of the Gleaming Star. In 1881 Badger published this English-Arabic Lexicon, which has remained the standard work of its kind. It was especially notable for its command of current Arabic nomenclature and phraseology.
