        Street Incidents

      1881 - THOMSON, John. Street Incidents. London: Sampson, Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1881. Tall, slim quarto, original gilt- and black-stamped pictorial green cloth, patterned endpapers. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $14,500.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. Prize gift book inscription from 1882 on front free endpaper.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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      1881. Translated by Ellen E. Frewer. Illustrated by L. Benett. New York: E.P. Dutton and Company, 1881. 1 page undated ads (with prices in sterling). Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt. First Illustrated Edition of this curious tale... Wealthy Chinaman hears that his fortune is lost. Opts for honorable suicide by arranging for a friend to kill him. Learns that his fortune isn't lost after all. Tells friend thanks but there is no need to kill him. Friend replies that he has already arranged for some thug to do the deed and now can't contact him... This Dutton edition was actually published in October 1880, exactly a year after Lee and Shepard of Boston published the first edition in English (which was unillustrated, and was in a plain binding). Although this Dutton edition comes from the British sheets (including the same binding design, the same plates, and even an ad leaf for Verne's works with prices in sterling), it was published a month earlier than Sampson Low's first British edition.~This is an unusually bright, clean copy: fine, virtually as new.

        Ayala's Angel

      1881 - TROLLOPE, Anthony. Ayala's Angel. London: Chapman and Hall, 1881. Three volumes. Octavo, original black-stamped pictorial orange cloth. $1600.First edition of the delightful social comedy about two sisters and their search for suitable husbands, in original cloth.In this beloved novel, Trollope follows the fortunes of the Dormer sisters, Ayala and Lucy. Struggling as poor orphans cast out into the world of 19th-century England, each sister is forced to search for that most elusive of things: a suitable husband. "No one has exhibited the outward aspects of the England of his day". as Trollope has done". When the 20th century desires to estimate the 19th, [his works] will be disinterred and studied" (DNB). First published serially in the United States between November 1880 and July 1881; this is considered the first edition. It is quite unusual to find the three-volume orange cloth binding in collectible condition. According to Sadleir, "Ayala's Angel was not reprinted in its original three-volume form. The balance of first edition sheets was issues three-volumes-in-one in a secondary binding of red cloth." This first edition ultimately went almost entirely to libraries. Sadleir 60. Only occasional faint foxing to text, inner paper hinges split, light soiling to cloth, minor rubbing to spine ends, toning to spines. An extremely good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Giant Raft ( Part I): Eight Hundred Leagues on the Amazon

      viii+244+[32 ad dated January 1881] pages with two title, one pictorial, illustrations. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 5 3/4") bound in original publisher's blue cloth with gilt and black lettering to spine with pictorial and pictorial black embossed pictorial cover, page ends in gilt. Translated by W J Gordon. (Gallagher, Mistichelli and Van Erde A 50) First British edition.Eight Hundred Leagues on the Amazon (French: La Jangada - Huit Cents lieues sur l'Amazone) is a novel by Jules Verne, published in 1881. It has also been published as The Giant Raft. Unlike many of his other novels, this story does not have any science fiction elements. It is an adventure novel. This novel involves how Joam Garral, a ranch owner who lives near the Peruvian-Brazilian border on the Amazon River, is forced to travel down-stream when his past catches up with him. Most of the novel is situated on a large jangada (a Brazilian timber raft) that is used by Garral and his family to float to Belém at the river's mouth. Many aspects of the raft, scenery, and journey are described in detail. Joam Garral grants his daughter's wish to travel to Belém where she wants to marry Manuel Valdez in the presence of Manuel's invalid mother. The Garrals travel down the Amazon River using a giant timber raft. At Belém, Joam plans to restore his good name, as he is still wanted in Brazil for a crime he did not perpetrate. A scoundrel named Torres offers Joam absolute proof of Joam's innocence but the price that Torres wants for this information is to marry Joam's daughter, which is inconceivable to Joam. The proof lies in an encrypted letter that will exonerate Garral. When Torres is killed, the Garral family must race to decode the letter before Joam is executed.Condition:Recased occasional spotting, spine dulled, some occasional finger to pages, corners gently bumped else a very good copy.

        Watercolor on paper. A Boxer in profile. Signed in lower left: "JSHL May 5, [18]81

      1881. Framed. Very Good Condition. Original watercolor (153 x 110 mm) This is the only surviving watercolor known to us executed by Jennie Loop (1840-1909), nee Harrison. Born in New Haven, Connecticut, she shared a studio with her husband, the well known artist Henry Augustus Loop. She was a pupil of Louis Bail in New Haven; in 1867 she and her husband went overseas for an extended Grand Tour, visiting Paris, Venice, and Rome. She was elected an associate of the National Academy in 1875. She regularly exhibited at the Academy Annual from 1871 until 1905. Her style is unpretentious, but natural and vigorous. Among her works are numerous portraits, "A Banquet for Mamma," "Little Runaway," Baby Belle" (she specialized in portraits of children); her portrait of John Quincy Adams Ward is at the National Academy of Design, for which see David Bernard Dearinger, Paintings and Sculpture in the Collection of the National Academy of Design, p. 365). Her "Portrait of Princess Bernice Pauahi" (1887) is at the Bishop Museum, Honolulu. Other portraits by her include Mr. and Mrs. Anson Phelps Stokes, Mrs. Roosevelt (the mother of the ex-President Theodore Roosevelt) and Mrs. A.T. Stewart. Henry Loop's portrait of his wife is at the National Academy of Design. Jennie Loop is buried at the Methodist Episcopal Church Yard, adjoining the church, North Hillsdale, Columbia County, New York. Her works are rare on the market -- the only painting known to us that was offered at auction was her "Portrait of a young girl" (1898), oil on canvas (22" x 18") which sold at Shannon's, October 25, 2001 [Lot 72], Fine American and European Paintings for $9200 (sic!)

        Schweizerisches Idiotikon. Wörterbuch der schweizerdeutschen Sprache. 15 Bde. (I-XVI; ) u. 1 Bd.: Registerbd. (für die Bde.: I - XI) u. 1 Bd.: Quellen -und Abkürzungsverzeichnis.. (17 Bde., compl.).

      Frauenfeld, Huber, 1881-2013 4°, j e ca. 1000 S., HLdr.(Lederimitat) mit Goldprägung., Etwas berieben, sonst tadell. - Das «Schweizerisches Idiotikon» das grösste Regionalwörterbuch des Deutschen. ist aus einem Idiotikon schweizerdeutscher Wörter längst zu einem umfassenden Wörterbuch des Schweizerdeutschen geworden. ja in gewissem Grad zu einem Reallexikon oder Thesaurus. Es erschliesst sowohl den Wortschatz der zum Teil sehr altertümlichen Dialekte der deutschen Schweiz (inkl. Walsermundarten Oberitaliens) als auch die schriftliche Überlieferung dieses Gebiets seit dem 12. Jahrhundert. besonders gründlich die des 15. und 16. Jahrhundert; dabei sind namentlich Landwirtschaft. Jagd. Fischerei und Gewerbe. Sachkultur und Volksleben. Recht und Dichtung berücksichtigt. auch Volkslieder. Kinderreime. Bauernregeln usw.. sodann die Sondersprachen der Schüler. Studenten. Soldaten und Fahrenden. Die einzelnen Wörter sind zufolge der lautlichen Vielfalt gemäss dem Schmellerschen System in erster Linie nach der Herkunft angeordnet und semantisch aufeinander bezogen; dadurch werden nicht nur die Bedeutungsentwicklung jedes Wortes. sondern auch dessen Stellenwert und Leistung innerhalb der Wortsippe sichtbar. Vielfache Verweisungen auf Synonyme und begriffsnahe Wörter erschliessen Wortfelder der Gegenwart oder früherer Zeit. Wo möglich (durchwegs für die Sprache vor 1800) sind die Wörter im Satzzusammenhang geboten; daher ist auch Phraseologie und Idiomatik berücksichtigt. Den Appellativen sind in reichem Masse entsprechende lebende und urkundliche Namen (Personen- und Lokalnamen) angeschlossen. Da der Grundstock des Mundartmaterials in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts dank der Mitarbeit von gegen 400 Korrespondenten zusammengekommen ist. kann das Werk sonst kaum beschriebene und heute weitgehend verschwundene Bereiche der sprachlichen. geistigen und materiellen Kultur dieser Zeit besonders gut dokumentieren. Es ist Arbeitsinstrument für verschiedenste Wissensgebiete wie Sprach-. Geschichts- und Rechtswissenschaft. Volks- und Namenkunde. Geographisch umfasst das Bearbeitungsgebiet die deutsche Schweiz einschliesslich der Walserorte in Norditalien. Das Gesamtwerk ( Bd. 16 erscheint 2010. Bd. 17 erst 2020) wird 17 Bände umfassen. Auf den Abschluss hin sind Arbeiten an einem alphabetischen und einem grammatischen Gesamtregister in Gang. Versandkostenfrei für Europa. (Beiliegend: Quellen- u. Abkürzungsverzeihnis. 3. nachgeführte Auflage. Huber.1980. Walter Haa « das Wörtebuch der schweizerdeutschen Sprache. Versuch einer nationalen Institution. Huber. 1981.)
