Trollope, Anthony
London: Wm. Isbister, Limited, 1882. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. Very good. A Very Good copy (for this title) of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original green binding (general wear and signs of handling, small tear to the spine head, lacking the front free endpaper, some marking to the half-title from the front pastedown, rear hinge broken); a collection of five short stories: Why Frau Frohmann Raised Her Prices, The Lady of Lunay, Christmas at Thompson Hall, The Telegraph Girl, and Alice Dugdale. This is the first book appearance of these Trollope stories, each of which previously appeared in periodical form. [Per Sadlier, subsequent to Trollope's death on December 6, 1882, Isbister "issued a two-volume edition, composed of the sheets of the first edition, not re-paged but divided at p. (199) so that Vol. II. begins with the half-title to 'Christmas at Thompson Hall'. This two-volume edition was provided with title-pages (a cancel in Vol. I., following original half-title; an inset page in Vol. II., without half-title).... // The volumes are printed on cheaper paper than that used for the original sheets...." Of this two-volume edition, Sadlier also states: "The two-volume edition post-dates that it one volume, being, I surmise, an unscrupulous attempt by the publisher to profit by Trollope's death (which took place at the beginning of December 1882. Is it not obvious that Isbister saw the opportunity of issuing in two-volumes (and at a two-volume price) a book which Trollope, when he was alive, did not permit to appear in more th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Palmer, A. H. (Alfred Herbert)
The Fine Art Society Limited, 1882, Hardcover (Quarter Leather), Book Condition: Fair Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket, First Edition. bound in olive boards with leather spine. The frontispiece is an original Samuel Palmer etching ("Christmas" or "Folding the Last Sheep") dating to 1850 but unpublished until its publication in this book. (the etching has often been removed by various cognoscenti making complete copies such as this fairly scarce). Further illustrated by 12 autotypes (including a photographic portrait print of Palmer) & 9 woodcuts of which 5 are on separate sheets & 4 within the text. Illustrated title page to the reverse of which has been glued a newspaper review of the book from a copy of 'The Spectator' (dated February 24, 1883) & also a short obituary of the artist Edward Calvert who died in that year. Samuel Palmer was one of the most original artists Britain has produced & first exhibited Turner-inspired works at the Royal Academy at the age of fourteen.. Palmer met William Blake in 1824. Blake's influence can be seen in work he produced over the next ten years and generally reckoned to be his greatest. He embarked on an intensely personal journey that led to an astonishing outpouring of mystical drawings and later to England's first artistic colony, "The Ancients," based in the idyllic landscape of Shoreham. This book contains the first major writings on Palmer, which were published for a retrospective exhibition in 1881. They include a biography by his son, A. H. Palmer.

One of the earliest of the Easton Press Twain DLEs is now very hard to find due to the ultra low issue. With only 400 out there in private hands now for many years, this will be a very difficult get. This stunning recreation of the historic 1882 first edition contains all the original illustrations and is rendered in gorgeous black embossed dark green leather, set off by the gold gilt design. A stunning edition! -- Published in 1853, Twelve Years a Slave is the memoir and slave narrative by American Solomon Northup, as recounted to and edited by David Wilson. Solomon Northup, a black man born free in New York State, details his being tricked to go to Washington, D.C., where he was kidnapped and sold into slavery in the Deep South. He was in bondage for 12 years in Louisiana. Northup's account provides extensive details on the slave markets in D.C. and New Orleans, and slave treatment at major plantations in Louisiana. The work was published eight years before the Civil War, soon after Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin. Northup's book, dedicated to Stowe, sold 30,000 copies, making it a bestseller in its own right. After being published in several editions in the 19th century and later cited by specialist scholarly works on slavery, the memoir fell into public obscurity for nearly 100 years. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pascoli, Giovanni
1882. Edizione originale. Ottimo esemplare viaggiato con breve frase di saluto autografa firmata di Maria Pascoli. Distico elegiaco scritto per la battaglia di Dògali, stampato su una cartolina. -- Michele Fiore, allievo del poeta al liceo di Matera negli anni Ottanta, ci informa che «il Pascoli componeva poeticamente oltre che in latino anche in greco», riportando una serie di aneddoti sulla sua abilità di verseggiatore nelle lingue antiche. Felice Greco (Giovanni Pascoli al Liceo di Matera, pagina 52) conferma: «Di distici greci il Pascoli dovè scrivere prima e dopo il 1882. Maria ne ha pubblicato, su di una cartolina illustrata a pro di un’opera di beneficenza di Castelvecchio Barga, uno, che il suo grande fratello scrisse nel 1888, al tempo dell’infausta campagna d’Africa»; si tratta esattamente della cartolina che qui descriviamo. -- Maria Pascoli scrive che Giovanni «non ebbe per parecchi mesi il tempo di dare qualche colpetto alle corde della sua lira. Tuttavia, in un giorno che piú lo tormentava la passione per il dubbio del trionfo delle nostre armi in Africa, rapidamente, mentre aveva avanti a sé un gran mucchio di lavori da rivedere, scrisse due distici greci con la loro traduzione italiana» (Lungo la vita di Giovanni Pascoli, 386). La stesura dei due brevi componimenti è annoverata tra gli avvenimenti del 1888; la stessa compare sulla cartolina, ma è probabile che in realtà sia stato scritto nel marzo 1887, due mesi dopo la battaglia. -- Il significato profondo della cartolina (e quello del distico ad essa associato) è stato molto ben descritto da Lorenzo Bracce … [Click Below for Full Description]

ALLEN, William Osborn Bird.
Presentation copy of Allen's very rare account of this travels through India: "and though I did not leave the ordinary beaten tracks, yet I think my experiences may interest others" (p. 1). Allen felt that as a parson he had much to add to the knowledge of India among the English people and he wanted to show the "densely ignorant" English citizens, "the wonders of the East". With a keen eye he describes Indian culture, customs and religion.Allen was the form Vicar of Shirburn and afterwards would become one of the secretaries of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. He was well acquainted with the treasures of Lord Macclesfield's library.With the author's presentation inscription on endpaper ("With the author's affectionate regards"). A restored tear in the map and some very minor wear along the extremities of the binding, otherwise in very good condition.

Palmer, A. H. (Alfred Herbert) & L. R. Valpy.
The frontispiece is an original Samuel Palmer etching ("Christmas" or "Folding the Last Sheep") dating to 1850 but unpublished until its publication in this book. (the etching has often been removed by various cognoscenti making complete copies such as this fairly scarce). Further illustrated by 12 autotypes (including a photographic portrait print of Palmer) & 9 woodcuts of which 5 are on separate sheets & 4 within the text. Illustrated title page to the reverse of which has been glued a newspaper review of the book from a copy of 'The Spectator' (dated February 24, 1883) & also a short obituary of the artist Edward Calvert who died in that year. Samuel Palmer was one of the most original artists Britain has produced & first exhibited Turner-inspired works at the Royal Academy at the age of fourteen.. Palmer met William Blake in 1824. Blake's influence can be seen in work he produced over the next ten years and generally reckoned to be his greatest. He embarked on an intensely personal journey that led to an astonishing outpouring of mystical drawings and later to England's first artistic colony, "The Ancients," based in the idyllic landscape of Shoreham. This book contains the first major writings on Palmer, which were published for a retrospective exhibition in 1881. They include a biography by his son, A. H. Palmer. Loosely inserted are some extracts from art auction catalogues relating to sales of Palmer's works.

Thomas was best known for his theatrical portraits, including a portrait of Edwin Booth. Alexander Caufman was the stage name for Alexander Kaufmann, an actor and dramatist in New York. He wrote "Lazare; A Life's Mistake." copywriting it in 1881 and taking it on the road: "The play abounds in striking situations and is at times very pathetic. Love, hate and jealousy are clearly depicted. Caufman as Eugene Lazare surprised and delighted the audience. He is an actor who is destined to make his mark in the profession. But the best of it all was that the principal character was well sustained by the excellent acting of the other players. The costumes were rich and beautiful and very much admired by the fair sex.

Tears of the spine with small fragments lost, some foxing, otherwise very good. First and only separate edition. Extremely rare. This is a thesis in applied mathematics that was written by Nikolay Zhukovsky (1847-1921), the founder of the Russian aerodynamics and contributor to world mechanics and aviation. The issue of motion stability was raised by A. Routh and N. Zhukovsky independently. The works were carried out, going from one start but in different directions. That point was noticed by Zhukovsky, when he got acquainted with already published Routh's book, and became the reason to finish his own work. Zhukovsky indicated the key difference in the preface and positioned both books as complementary to each other. Worldcat doesn't track this edition.

Oelrichs & Company
New York: Manuscript, 1882. Hardcover. Very good condition. Leather bound ledger maintained by the accountant for a consortium of tightly knit merchants in New York, originally from Bremen, Germany. It contains a very early 1866 record of American petroleum sales to Bremen, in the years before John D. Rockefeller established his own oil export office in New York City. The names of the German merchants in New York recorded here include: Caspar Meier, L. H. von Post, Hermann Oelrichs, George W. Kruger, Edwin A. Oelrichs and W. A. Fritze. The firm's name changed frequently, from C. & H. H. Meier, to Caspar Meier & Co., L. H. von Post & Oelrichs, Oelrichs & Kruger, and Oelrichs & Company (the firm retained this name from about 1850 on). These were highly successful merchants from established merchant families in Bremen who settled in New York in the early 1800s and sold a wide range of goods, which they had acquired cheaply and sold for a profit, to clients in Europe, including "petroleum to Bremen", with sales of petroleum recorded as early as 1866. This was the same year in which John D. Rockefeller opened his own oil export office in New York City. The following year, with 2 partners, Rockefeller founded the company which would become Standard Oil.The ledger begins in 1845 and carries through the Civil War era, concluding in 1882. It records trade in a wide variety of the usual commodities: sugar, rice, cotton, tobacco, wheat, and clay. It records losses incurred "on claims" and "on adventure" in shipping these goods, and records the names of the ships involved. T … [Click Below for Full Description]

One of the earliest of the Easton Press Twain DLEs is now very hard to find due to the ultra low issue. With only 400 out there in private hands now for many years, this will be a very difficult get. This stunning recreation of the historic 1882 first edition contains all the original illustrations and is rendered in gorgeous black embossed dark green leather, set off by the gold gilt design. A stunning edition! -- Published in 1853, Twelve Years a Slave is the memoir and slave narrative by American Solomon Northup, as recounted to and edited by David Wilson. Solomon Northup, a black man born free in New York State, details his being tricked to go to Washington, D.C., where he was kidnapped and sold into slavery in the Deep South. He was in bondage for 12 years in Louisiana. Northup's account provides extensive details on the slave markets in D.C. and New Orleans, and slave treatment at major plantations in Louisiana. The work was published eight years before the Civil War, soon after Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin. Northup's book, dedicated to Stowe, sold 30,000 copies, making it a bestseller in its own right. After being published in several editions in the 19th century and later cited by specialist scholarly works on slavery, the memoir fell into public obscurity for nearly 100 years. … [Click Below for Full Description]

1882. Kostroma: Tipo-litografiia A. Fal'k, 1882. Small quarto (23 � 15.6 cm). Contemporary pebbled boards; gilt title to front board; 98 pp. Two folding maps, partially in color. Spine recently re-backed; corners scuffed; faint Soviet bookstore stamps to rear pastedown; still about very good. Rare provincial imprint, which argues against the historian Nikolay Kostomarov, who questioned the heroic acts of Ivan Susanin, a Russian martyr figure from the Time of Troubles, known for leading astray a Polish detachment in search of the Tsar's family. After the soldiers perished in the woods during the winter, Susanin was supposedly subjected to torture by the Poles, but refused to reveal the location of the Tsar and his family. Out of gratitude for his service, Tsar Mikhail later granted Susanin's son in law a large plot of land near Kostroma. Kostomarov doubted the narrative about the faithful Russian peasant's feat of honor, and is here answered by Samarianov based on deeds and various other documents from local archives, previously unknown to scholarship. With two lithographed maps, partly in color, of the Kostroma Guberniia and the surroundings of the village of Domnino. We cannot trace any copies at Russian or Western auctions. Not in KVK, OCLC. As of August 2019, we only locate two copies of the second edition (Riazan', 1884), at Chicago and the Hillwood Museum Library.

However, he was able to assist in navigation of Melville's boat to the Lena Delta. After rescue and recovery, he was assigned to command a naval academy training ship, 'Constellation'. In 1887, the "Constellation' ran aground and Danenhower committed suicide soon after. This book preceded Congressional hearings and inquiries and the publication of the De long journals, edited by Emma De Long in 1883. From the Arctic Bibliography, it is described as "The … [Click Below for Full Description]

Qu'est-ce qu'une nation ?: conférence faite en Sorbonne, le 11 mars 1882 / par Ernest Renan Paris, Calmann Lévy, 1882, 30 pages, format in-8, reliure demi-toile de l'époque, très rare édition originale (mention fictive de deuxième édition) de ce texte mythique. Excellent état. Description en photos ici: https://photos.app.goo.gl/WCaBECwEpFMxqydW8 La conférence d'Ernest Renan, Qu'est-ce qu'une nation est souvent évoquée comme représentative de la conception française de la question nationale. On peut la résumer, comme Renan lui-même, à l'idée que : « L'homme n'est esclave ni de sa race, ni de sa langue, ni de sa religion, ni du cours des fleuves, ni de la direction des chaînes de montagnes. Une grande agrégation d'hommes, saine d'esprit et chaude de coeur, crée une conscience morale qui s'appelle une nation. Tant que cette conscience morale prouve sa force par les sacrifices qu'exige l'abdication de l'individu au profit d'une communauté, elle est légitime, elle a le droit d'exister. Si des doutes s'élèvent sur ses frontières, consultez les populations disputées. Elles ont bien le droit d'avoir un avis dans la question. » Après avoir examiné successivement ces différentes options, il synthétisera encore mieux cette conception à la célèbre formule qui fait de la nation « un plébiscite de tous les jours ».

Oelrichs & Company
New York: Manuscript, 1882. Hardcover. Very good condition. Leather bound ledger maintained by the accountant for a consortium of tightly knit merchants in New York, originally from Bremen, Germany. It contains a very early 1866 record of American petroleum sales to Bremen, in the years before John D. Rockefeller established his own oil export office in New York City. The names of the German merchants in New York recorded here include: Caspar Meier, L. H. von Post, Hermann Oelrichs, George W. Kruger, Edwin A. Oelrichs and W. A. Fritze. The firm's name changed frequently, from C. & H. H. Meier, to Caspar Meier & Co., L. H. von Post & Oelrichs, Oelrichs & Kruger, and Oelrichs & Company (the firm retained this name from about 1850 on). These were highly successful merchants from established merchant families in Bremen who settled in New York in the early 1800s and sold a wide range of goods, which they had acquired cheaply and sold for a profit, to clients in Europe, including "petroleum to Bremen", with sales of petroleum recorded as early as 1866. This was the same year in which John D. Rockefeller opened his own oil export office in New York City. The following year, with 2 partners, Rockefeller founded the company which would become Standard Oil. The ledger begins in 1845 and carries through the Civil War era, concluding in 1882. It records trade in a wide variety of the usual commodities: sugar, rice, cotton, tobacco, wheat, and clay. It records losses incurred "on claims" and "on adventure" in shipping these goods, and records the names of the ships involved … [Click Below for Full Description]
