        Nilbilder [Nile Sketches]

      1881. WERNER, Karl. Nilbilder [Nile Sketches]. Wandsbeck: Gustav W. Seitz, 1881. Folio (12 by 15 inches), original gray cloth with elaborate red and green morocco-gilt onlays rebacked with portion of original spine laid down, renewed spine label, patterned endpapers, all edges gilt. $3000.Early edition in German, with a map of Egypt, two in-text illustrations, and 24 rich folio chromolithographic plates of Egyptian landmarks and scenery.Born and trained in Germany, Werner set up a studio in Venice and became a popular and respected European watercolorist, exhibiting across Europe (and England in particular). During his travels in Egypt and Palestine, done in 1862-64, he became one of the few non-Muslims granted access to the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. A contemporary reviewer thought Werner's ""architectural pictures bring all the purity and richness of watercolor to a system of study deliberate and complete. His Eastern views are the best architectural work of the day"" (The Century Magazine). ""The plates are facsimile pantographic prints from Werner's watercolours; they are of superb quality"" (Khatib, Palestine and Egypt Under the Ottomans). With text by Dr. A.E. Brehm and Dr. Johannes Dümichen. First published in 1875. See Blackmer 1947. Plates lovely, colors bright; a few repairs to text leaves. Staining and wear to publisher's elaborate binding. A very good copy.

        Star Cluster in Hercules. From a Study made in June 1877

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1881. Chomolithograph. From a magnificent series of American chromolithographs of celestial phenomena by the Audubon of the skies. The Great Cluster of Hercules, more prosaically known as M 13, is the brightest globular cluster in the Northern Sky. Globular clusters are gravity-bound groups of stars, tens to hundreds of thousands, that orbit a galaxy, in this case our Milky Way. "A keen observer and skillful artist, Trouvelot spent several years working with the fifteen-inch refractor [telescope] at Harvard Observatory. [In all he spent fifteen years observing and drawing the heavens. In addition to Harvard, he also used the telescopes at the Washington Observatory and the University of Virginia.] The drawings he made... are still widely known. Except for Rutherford's wet-plate photographs of the sun and moon, made in 1865, Trouvelot's drawings were considered the most accurate pictures of celestial objects available until the perfection of dry-plate photography" (DSB XIII, 472). Like Audubon, Trouvelot, who was born in Aisne, France in 1827, made his name in America. He arrived in Massachusetts in 1855 and initially he worked as an artist and experimented with entomology: he was responsible for the plague of Hawk Moths in Massachusetts in the late 19th century. From 1870 he turned his attention to the skies, producing a whole series of detailed paintings of the aurora. In 1872, he was invited by Joseph Winlock, director of the Harvard College Observatory, to join the staff. During his relatively short time at Harvard, he produced the drawings that were re-produced in colour in Winlock's series of Astronomical Engravings , published in 1876. Although astro-photography was advancing rapidly, Trouvelot argued, with reason, that the ' well-trained eye alone is capable of seizing the delicate details of the structure and configuration of the heavenly bodies'. The current images certainly bear this out. They represent Trouvelot's own selection of the best from the corpus of over 7,000 drawings that he produced. In an effort to reach a wider audience, Trouvelot decided to publish the selection. With this in mind he contacted Charles Scribner's Sons, the New York publishing house, who agreed to publish the work. He personally supervised the preparation of the lithographic stones, and the set was finally published in 1882 with the accompanying book, The Trouvelot ... Manual , priced at $125 for the set. Each print bears a facsimile of Trouvelot's signature and is titled with sub-title giving the precise time and date when the original observation was made. In 1882, he left the United States, to take up a position at the Meudon Observatory, in France, where he died in 1895. His legacy is the unequalled corpus of illustrations of celestial phenomena and the present work: a fitting memorial to the greatest astronomical artist of the nineteenth century. OCLC 39538252 and 985012; see DSB XIII, 472; Encyclopedia of Planetary Sciences , p.842. A.M. Clerke, A Popular History of Astronomy During the Nineteenth Century (Edinburgh: Adam & Charles Black, 1885), pp.191, 241.

        Printed Arrest Warrant for Rees Gobles Signed by Pat Garrett.

      Lincoln County, New Mexico. Very Good. 1881. Ephemera. 8vo 8" - 9" tall; [Western Americana][Billy the Kid][Selman's Scouts]Garrett, Patrick Floyd Jarvis. Printed Arrest Warrant for Rees Gobles Signed by Pat Garrett. Lincoln County, New Mexico: 1881. 7” x 8½Â”. Printed arrest warrant completed in manuscript on recto, docketed on verso and signed “Not found/Pat. F. Garrett/Sheriff”. Very good, old folds, toned at extremities. A terrific relic of the Old West, issued just six weeks after Lincoln County, New Mexico Sheriff Pat Garret shot and killed Billy the Kid. This document orders Garrett to arrest Rees Gobles for murder. Gobles, also known as “Reese” and “Reason Goble” was an escaped Texas convict and member of John Selman's Scouts (also known as the “Rustlers” or “Wrestlers”). The Rustlers took advantage of the anarchy that existed after the Lincoln County War, arriving there in August 1878. They were evil incarnate: unlike other gangs in Lincoln who couched their violence in a cause, the Rustlers' only motive was cruelty and over a couple of months they terrorized the area wantonly raping, stealing and murdering. By the time Gobles joined the gang, he had been convicted of at least one murder as well as the rape of a 10 year old girl. Most accounts claim he disappeared back to Texas in 1879. Garrett's signature has been closely examined and compared to authenticated examples. We believe it to be real and guarantee its authenticity in perpetuity. If it is ever deemed inauthentic, you may return the item for a full refund including shipping. A terrific association documenting a legend of the Old West on the hunt of a known outlaw. Please do not hesitate to contact us for additional information and/or photos and we will respond promptly. We package our items carefully, ship daily, and have a no hassle returns policy--your satisfaction is guaranteed.

A number of photographs were taken, some for cartes-de-visite, but this image of Darwin is not recorded in the National Portrait Gallery database, nor can I find it reproduced anywhere. A similar version from the same sitting is at the Lilly Library, University of Indiana, and can be seen online.Darwin wrote of his experience: 'I am very sorry to be disobliging about the photographers but I cannot endure the thought of sitting again'. The portrait of Emma, who was aged about 73, is reproduced in Emma Darwin: A century of family letters, vol II p 286.'Barraud (1845-1896) was a portrait photographer with a studio in London's Portman Square. Darwin was a frequent target of portrait photographers; numerous cartes-de-visite made his face instantly familiar to the Victorian public. Francis Darwin recalled that his father did not realize that he would be recognized from his photographs; he became very uncomfortable when a stranger at the Crystal Palace Aquarium greeted him by name. The aging Darwin was a particularly appealing subject; one visitor to Down House saw in him "Socrates come to life. with the high-domed brow of the true philosopher" (Richard Milner, 'Charles Darwin: The Last Portrait, Scientific American, November 1995). The carte-de-visite is undated; it seems likely it was produced at the same time as the widely known 1881 frontal portrait of Darwin that is usually considered the last image from life (see fig. 7.2 in Janet Browne, "I Could Have Retched All Night: Charles Darwin and His Body," Science Incarnate: Historical Embodiments of Natural Knowledge, ed. Lawrence and Shapin, Chicago: Chicago University Press, 1998)' Music for the Worms: Darwin at the Lilly Library, Indiana University curated by Christoph Irmscher (online).Herbert Rose Barraud (1845-1896) was a popular portrait photographer, with studios at 96 Gloucester Place, Portman Square and later, at 263 Oxford Street.Provenance: inscription on verso of the portrait of Emma, 'Mrs. Darwin' and on the verso of that of Charles 'Darwin in the latest period of his life. (Pronounced by his wife to be very good likeness)'.

        L'Encéphale. Journal des maladies mentales et nerveuses

      Paris, G. Masson [puis J.-B. Baillière], 1881. 1881-1888, 1881-1888, , 8 volumes in-8, 42 (sur 43) planches, dont quelques unes en couleurs et plusieurs comprenant des photographies originales, demi-basane bleu-vert de l'époque, dos lisses et fileté, Collection quasi complète, d'une insigne rareté, de la revue l'Encéphale, publiée de 1881 à 1889. Elle contient de nombreux articles originaux, notamment de ses fondateurs Luys (1828-1897) et Ball (1833-1893). Sans l'année 1889. Lacunes au tome III (année 1883) : sans les pages 337 à 352 et la planche numéroté 3. Ce journal se caractérise, selon ses rédacteurs, par son impartialité, son esprit pratique et son scepticisme ; « nous n'entendons point par-là cette ironie banale qui s'attaque sans distinction à toutes les idées nouvelles ; nous voulons parler de cette vertu négative qui constitue l'un des traits les plus élevés de l'esprit scientifique, et qui nous apprend à ne jamais accepter un fait sans le contrôler, une idée sans la discuter, une hypothèse sans lui demander ses preuves ». L'Encéphale comprend de nombreuses planches, dont plusieurs donnent des clichés photographiques tirés en photoglyptie, certains publiés ici pour la première fois, à l'instar des célèbres photographies d'Esther et de Gabrielle, patientes sur lesquelles Luys expérimenta les effets de l'hypnose sous diverses substances, et qui sont l'objet de l'article célèbre, « Les émotions dans l'état d'hypnotisme », qui parait en librairie peu de temps après. La publication de l'Encéphale se ressent, à partir de ces années, du nouvel état d'esprit de Luys, qui vient d'être nommé médecin-chef à la Charité et qui y fonde sa propre école de recherches sur l'hystérie, inspirée de celle de Charcot à la Salpêtrière, et se lance sans discernement dans des expériences parfois douteuses sur le plan de la rigueur scientifique, expériences auxquelles assiste l'occultiste Gérard d'Encausse, dit Papus. Si l'Encéphale n'est pas encore l'"organe" de ces expériences de la Charité, elle n'en délivre pas moins pour la première fois à la société savante ces "égarements", qui s'exprimeront pleinement dans la brève "Revue d'hypnologie" que dirige Luys, après la cessation de l'Encéphale, en 1890. Contributions, outre de Ball et Luys, de Boyé, E. Régis, J. Giraud, Fusier, Boucheron, Chambard, Marandon de Montyel, Sicard, G. Pichon, etc... Défaut habituel de pagination pour l'année 1882 ; après la page 696, la numérotation reprend à 997. Quelques surcharges au crayon bleu. Dos insolés. Titre de la cinquième année (1885) non conservé

      1881 - First Edition of The Common Law in a Handsome Clamshell Box Holmes, Oliver Wendell, Jr. [1841-1935]. The Common Law. Boston: Little, Brown, And Company, 1881. [i]-xvi, 422 pp. Octavo (8" x 5-1/4"). Original maroon pebbled cloth, blind double frames to boards, gilt title to spine, triple gilt rules at spine ends. Light rubbing to boards, early repairs (?) to a few tiny scuffs on rear board, moderate rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends and corners, which are bumped, front hinge partially cracked. Light toning to text, finger smudges to a few leaves. Book housed in recent quarter morocco clamshell box with marbled boards, gilt edged raised bands and gilt title to spine. An appealing copy in a handsome box. * First edition, presumed first issue (two-line printer statement at foot of the title page, verso, reading "University Press:/ John Wilson and Son, Cambridge and a one-line statement to foot of p. 422 reading "University Press: John Wilson & Son, Cambridge"). As Friedman points out, "The Common Law was easily the most distinguished book on law by an American published between 1850 and 1900." In contrast to earlier Anglo-American jurists, and the reigning positivist ethos of the nineteenth century, Holmes proposed that the law was not a science founded on abstract principles but a body of practices that responded to particular situations. This functionalist interpretation led to his radical conclusion that law was not discovered, but invented. This radical theme is announced at the beginning of Lecture I: "The life of the law has not been logic: it has been experience" (1). Winfield observes that Holmes's "brilliant exposition, as effective on English scholarship and legal thinking as on American, of the true nature of law both as a development from the past and an organism of the present, blew fresh air into lawyer's minds encrusted with Blackstone and Kent." It went on to become a decisive influence on sociological jurisprudence, legal realism and the general development of Anglo-American law in the twentieth century.

        The Chess Monthly

      London: Jas Wade, 1881-1882. iv+380 pages with illustrations, diagrams, tables, and index. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 6 1/4") bound in quarter black leather with gilt lettering to spine and blue marbled boards. From the library of Dino Ruggieri. Volume III (3). (Betts: 7-25). First edition.The Chess Monthly of Great Britain was one of the first to give properly annotated games. The principal editor, Leopold Hoffer, was helped enormously by having J H Zukertort as co-editor until his death in 1888. There were four regular sections: news, annotated games, problems and endgames. In addition, Hoffer carried on a profoundly bitter feud with his one-time benefactor, Steinitz. This publication should not be confused with The Chess Monthly published in the United States which was short lived from 1857-1862 and edited by Fiske and Morphy.Dino Ruggieri was born in, Pigüé a small city in the Buenos Aires province, October 22, 1921. His parents were both Italians, natives of Porto D'Ascoli. In their early years in Argentina, the Ruggieri’s family lived in the country, located about 45 miles from Pigüé. The family was engaged in agriculture. When Ruggieri was 8, his father purchased a home in Pigüé, where he lived until 2008. In 1938 he was involved in an accident and he was transferred to Buenos Aires for recovery. This was the beginning of his hobby of chess, both as a player over the board and by correspondence, but as well as a major collector of chess materials. After his recovery he became a prominent local chess player and very good representative in postal chess, where he represented Argentina in matches against Italy, Yugoslavia, Holland and other countries. He was using the correspondence with his rivals to offer exchanges. Ruggieri was related to Mr Niemeijer and soon began exchanging materials and making important purchases.
