      Leipzig, F. A. Brockhaus, 1882 1887. Die 13. Auflage stellt einen wichtigen Schritt in der Geschichte des Brockhaus-Lexikons dar: Es handelt sich um die erste Brockhaus-Ausgabe mit teilweise farbigen Bildtafeln, außerdem um das erste Brockhaus-Lexikon im Doppenspalten-Druck. Die Ausgabe zeichnet sich unter anderem durch instruktives Kartenmaterial aus, enthalten ist zum Beispiel eine ausklappbare Afrika-Karte im Großformat. Zahlreiche technologische Abbildungen, zum Beispiel aus dem Bereich der deutschen Maschinenbau- und Elektroindustrie, spiegeln eindrucksvoll den Stand der Industrialisierung wider. Buchrücken partiell leicht aufgehellt, sonst in gutem Zustand wenige Deckelbezüge mit einige kleinen Abriebstellen wenige erste und letzte Seiten leicht fleckig, Schnitt des zweiten Bandes mit einem Tintenfleck Seiten sonst aber sauber und fleckenfrei. Die Bände wurden selten benutzt. Insgesamt gutes, gepflegtes Exemplar der 13. Brockhaus-Auflage, die in gutem Zustand durchaus selten anzutreffen ist.

        Two on a Tower. A Romance.

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington,, 1882. In Three Volumes. 3 volumes, octavo. Original dark green cloth, titles to spines gilt, triple-frames and publisher's monogram device to boards in blind, pale yellow endpapers, top edge untrimmed. Spines gently cocked, bindings lightly rubbed and bumped, occasional marks to margins. An excellent set. First edition. Two on a Tower originally ran as a serial in both America and the UK in the Boston-based Atlantic Monthly between May and December 1882. The editor Thomas Bailey Aldrich had written Hardy in late September 1881, asking about the possibility of a serial. However, Hardy did not begin work on the story until early 1882 and by 14 July the same year Sampson Low agreed to publish the book form. Overall, Hardy seems to have found writing Two on a Tower a rushed affair: "The truth is that, though the plan of the story was carefully thought out, the actual writing was lamentably hurried — having been produced month by month, and the MS. despatched to America, where it was printed without my seeing the proofs. It would have been rewritten for the book form if I had not played truant and gone off to Paris" (Letter to Edmund Gosse, 21 January 1883). In book form, the novel was published in late October 1882, in an edition of 1,000 copies. With the ink stamps of Dartington Hall, located in Totnes, Devon, part of Hardy's fictionalized Wessex.

      Bangor, Maine: Times Job Print, 1882. 1st Edition. Overall VG (some soiling/faint fold lines).. Broadside, printed in black. 25-1/8" x 8-3/4" Broadside advertising: "Bangor Opera House, One Night Only, Thursday Evening, Dec. 7th, The McDowell's and their Superb Dramatic Company Including the talented young actor, Mr. J.

Gilmour (1857-1922) would go on to star in many Hollywood films, and had quite a prolific career. The Bangor Opera House opened its doors in 1882, so this would have been performed in its foundling year. The Opera House has since burned down and been reconstructed. A fantastically ephemeral publication, for the collector of Wilkie Collins, theatre broadsides, or fans of the dashing J. H. Gilmour. Diverse titles of WIlkie Collins have been dramatised over the years, few artifacts appear from an American locale (as recorded on OCLC).

Overall a lovely, complete set of a publication usually subject to hard use and depredations of print collectors. Complete set weights 200 kg. Presented to London (Ontario) Mechanics Institute by John Murray and later by Her Majesty's Government. John Murray was born in Canada and educated in London, Ontario. Title continues: "under the command of Captain George S. Nares, R.N., F.R.S. and the Late Captain Frank Tourle Thomson, R.N. Prepared under the Superintendence of the Late Sir C. Wyville Thomson, Knt., F.R.S., &c. Regius Professor of Natural History in the University of Edinburgh, Director of the Civilian Scientific Staff on Board and Now of John Murray, LL.D., Ph.D., &c., one of the Naturalists of the Expedition. The most comprehensive series of scientific voyage reports ever published, the Report on the Scientific Results of the Voyage of the H.M.S. Challenger is extremely scarce as a complete 50-volume set. Considered second only to Darwin's voyage aboard the Beagle for its contributions to 19th century science, the voyage of the Challenger founded the scientific discipline of oceanography. Naturalist Sir John Murray referred to the publication as “the greatest advance in the knowledge of our planet since the celebrated discoveries of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.” HMS Challenger left Portsmouth on Dec. 21 1872 and returned to Spithead, Hampshire on May 24, 1876 having spent 713 days at sea out of the intervening 1,250. Its voyage proceeded around the world by way of South Africa, Australasia, Antarctica, East Asia, Hawaii, and South America, making it the most important 19th century circumnavigation of the globe. A joint venture of the Royal Society and the British Admiralty, the goals were: *to investigate the physical conditions of the deep sea in the great ocean basins, including depth, temperature, circulation, specific gravity and penetration of light. *to determine the chemical composition of seawater at various depths from the surface to the bottom as well as the organic matter in solution and the particles in suspension. *to ascertain the physical and chemical character of deep-sea deposits and the sources of the deposits. *to investigate the distribution of organic life at different depths and on the sea floor. The expedition's scientists were directed by Scottish Professor Charles Wyville Thomson (1830-1882), natural historian and marine zoologist who served as chief naturalist on board. Wyville Thompson died of exhaustion and stress during the preparation of the reports and the publication was afterwards supervised by his assistant, Canadian-born Sir John Murray (1841-1914) who was educated in our very own London, Ontario. As a pioneering oceanographer, marine biologist and limnologist, Murray is considered to be the father of modern oceanography. Seven of the volumes were written mostly or entirely by Murray. Admitted into the Royal Society as a Fellow in 1896, Murray received further commendation by the British government in 1898 when Queen Victoria granted the rank of KCB in recognition of his outstanding contributions to marine science. Other expedition scientists: John Young Buchanan (1844-1925), the expedition's official chemist; Henry Nottidge Moseley (1844-1891) who studied invertebrate biology; Rudolf von Willemoes-Suhm (1847-1875), German naturalist who studied the crustaceans the voyage discovered, died en route from Hawaii to Tahiti and was buried at sea. The official expedition artist was John James Wild (1824-1900), a Swiss-born natural history illustrator who also acted as the expedition's secretary. The ship's 23 officers and 240 “bluejackets” were led by Captain George Strong Nares, highly thought of as a leader and explorer. During their four-year mission, the men of the Challenger circumnavigated the globe, travelling 68,890 nautical miles (127,580 km) across the Atlantic, Pacific and Antarctic oceans. They sounded the ocean bottom to a depth of 26,850 feet (8,183.88 m), discovered 715 new genera and 4,717 new species of ocean life, many of which were creatures thought at that time to be mythical. In addition, they conducted 492 deep sea soundings, 133 bottom dredges, 151 open water trawls and 263 water temperature observations. The ship collected data and samples at 362 stations scattered over 14 million square miles (36,259,833 square km) of ocean floo r.The expedition's zoology findings make up the bulk of the report. Many of their specimens were displayed in the British Natural History Museum and are still looked at by researchers today. The report includes observations on faunae of countries visited, with the gorgeous highlight being Birds by P. L. Sclater with 30-hand coloured plates. Other papers include: Bones of Cetacea, by W. Turner; Human Skeletons, by William Turner; Collections of Eggs, by P. L. Sclater; Essay on the Green Turtle, by W. K. Parker; Essays on Shore Fishes and Deep Sea Fishes, both by A. Gunther; and Deep-Sea Fauna of New Zealand, by A. Hamilton. Narrative Volume I, First and Second Parts, include photographs taken by a series of photographers that include the earliest known photographs of Antarctic icebergs. Although the Challenger sailed close to Antarctica, allowing the men to view icebergs, pack ice and whales, they did not go within sight of the actual continent. The Challenger was a three-masted, square-rigged, steam-assisted 200 ft. (61 m) long wooden corvette from the Royal Navy, built 1858 as a hybrid of the eras of sail and steam. It was the first vessel specifically equipped for oceanographic research, most of its guns being removed to make way for scientific laboratories, work rooms and storage space for samples collected. Some of the ship's equipment was invented or specially modified just for the expedition. This 50-volume set, containing almost 30,000 pages, took 19 years, until 1895, to publish in entirety. Specimens brought back were distributed to the world's foremost experts for examination, which greatly increased the expense and time required to finish the report. Most sets went to libraries or other institutions. Oceanography is increasingly relevant as global warming affects sea levels, coastlines, ocean acidification, sea currents, surface temperatures, tides, the sea floor, and weather. Studying climate change requires a foundation which the report of the Challenger provides in abundance, being the first attempt to explore the ocean depths beyond a few fathoms.

        THE AUTHENTIC LIFE OF BILLY, THE KID, THE NOTED DESPERADO OF THE SOUTHWEST, WHOSE DEEDS OF DARING AND BLOOD MADE HIS NAME A TERROR IN NEW MEXICO, ARIZONA AND NORTHERN MEXICO

      Santa Fe: New Mexican Printing and Publishing Co., 1882. 137pp. (pp.113-128 mispaginated 121-136) plus six plates including frontispiece portrait of the Kid. Present is the errata slip only sometimes found, tipped to foot of p.121. With a clipped signature of Marshall Pat Garrett laid in. Slightly later plain blue wrappers. Wrappers soiled along edges and worn at spine. Early ownership signature at head of titlepage and foot of final page. Tear in final leaf repaired with loss to five words but not affecting the sense. Three leaves with upper outer edge torn away, not affecting text or pagination. Else quite clean and neat internally. Overall, still very good. In a half morocco and cloth slipcase and chemise. The most famous western outlaw book, and one of the rarest, the life of Billy the Kid by the man who killed him. Probably actually written by Ashmun Upson with the close collaboration of Garrett, this book is the foundation stone of the Billy the Kid legend. Dykes enumerates at length some of the inaccuracies of the narrative, and Adams is even more critical of particular points; but as Dykes' work admirably demonstrates, the whole point of the Kid legend is not so much to preserve the facts of the case, but to grow the legend itself, and it is from this book that the legend springs. "First genuine biography of America's most spectacular example of juvenile delinquency" - Howes. "Exceedingly rare" - Adams. HOWES G73, "b." DYKES, KID 13. ADAMS SIX-GUNS 807. GRAFF 1515. RADER 1541. STREETER SALE 4287. SAUNDERS 2916. REESE, BEST OF THE WEST 198.
