        Hulda. Marche et airs de Ballet. Transcription a 2 pianos. Autograph musical manuscript signed and dated November 18, 1889

      - Franck began his opera Hulda in 1882 and finished it in 1885. Its first performance was given posthumously on March 8, 1894 at Monte Carlo. The opera is based on a Scandinavian legend with text by Ch. Grandmougin after a dramatization by Bjornson. It was not published until 1894, at which time it was issued by Choudens in Paris. Even though Hulda did not premiere until after Franck's death, the Marche and Airs de Ballet from the opera were performed earlier and quite well received. In a letter to Vincent d'Indy (one of Franck's students) written from Antwerp on August 14, 1885 Franck wrote: "I want to tell you that at a concert here your `Chevanchee du Cid' was played perfectly, and had a great success.You were in the same company as your master, whose march and ballet music from `Hulda' were warmly applauded." D'Indy: César Franck, p. 246.The same music from Hulda was also performed at the Franck Festival on January 30th 1887 at the Cirque d'Hiver. It would appear, moreover, that of the entire opera the ballet music was closest to Franck's heart. Again, quoting from d'Indy: "At the same time he almost took the bit between his teeth (forgive the trite expression) at one moment while composing Hulda; but it is remarkable that it was the ballet that carried him away from the first, and that was still symphonic music. He wrote this ballet without pause or break, at the same time as a prologue, which does not appear in the score as it now stands, having been replaced, no one knows why, by an epilogue. One evening in the autumn of 1882, when Henri Duparc and I called to see him, he came to meet us, flushed and very much excited, and fired off these words at us, which can only be really appreciated by those who knew "Father" Franck: "I think the ballet of Hulda is a very good bit of work; I am very pleased with it. I have just been playing it over to myself, and - I even danced it!" ibid p. 179. Folio. 35, [ii] (blank), 36-61 pp. 345 x 270 mm. Wrappers with attractive calligraphic titling to upper. Notated in black ink on 14 hand-ruled staves per page. Occasional corrections; significant rewriting of two bars on page 42; additional markings in red crayon and pencil. Wrappers slightly worn and torn at edges. Minor internal wear. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        [Poster]. Alex. Caufman as Eugene Lazare in "Life's Mistake

      New York: H.A. Thomas Lith. Studio, 112 Fourth Ave. New York, 1882. A very good copy (about B+) with some tears, abrasions, creasing, and staining along right margin, light foxing in the image; a few pin holes in top corners; advertising banner affixed to bottom edge.. 1 sheet. Banner at bottom reads "Fulton Opera House! One night only" Wednesday April 19." Henry Atwell Thomas (1834-1904) was an American artist, portrait painter, and lithographer, his firm working until 1887 under the name "H.A. Thomas Lith. Studio" (at 865 Broadway, N.Y. until 1882, then at 112 Broadway) until 1887 when it became "H. A. Thomas & Wylie Lithography Co." 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. The Comedy element was the source of much amusement and kept the audience in a roar," (Albany Journal). Of the original play, we could locate no copies. The Library of Congress has large holdings of Henry Atwell Thomas' work, but we could not locate this poster there nor in any other online library catalogues or theatrical poster collections.

        POÉSIES DIVERSES DU CARDINALE DE BERNIS

      A. Quantin, Paris 1882 - The Only Copy Printed on Vellum, from the Furstenberg Collection. 206 x 140 mm (8 1/8 x 5 1/2"). xxxii, 247 pp., [1] leaf (colophon). With a bio-bibliographical notice by Fernand Drujon. UNIQUE COPY ON VELLUM, printed for M. A. Werlé. Pleasing burgundy Jansenist crushed morocco by Canape et Corriez (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in, dated 1930 on rear turn-in), raised bands, turn-ins richly gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt on the rough. Decorative head- and tail-pieces throughout and eight engraved plates, comprised of a frontispiece portrait in four states (one on vellum, three on paper) and an allegorical vignette, also in four states. Verso of front free endpaper with ex libris of Jean Furstenberg. Two small dark spots to upper cover, a couple of leaves with naturally occurring minor discoloration to vellum, but A FINE COPY--especially clean, fresh, and bright internally, and in a lustrous, unworn binding. Given its illustrious provenance and its singular status as the only copy printed on vellum, this is a quintessentially bibliophilic copy of the poems of French cleric and diplomat Cardinal François-Joachim de Pierre de Bernis (1715-94). Admired as a witty epigrammist at the court of Louis XV, where Madame de Pompadour presided, Bernis composed poems on such conventional themes as love and the natural world, but also verses contemplating manners and mores, fashion, independence, and love of country. Since none of his poems was published before his death, he was not widely known as a poet during his lifetime, but, in another sphere, he performed important service to his country as France's ambassador to Rome. He provided shelter and succour there for refugees from the French Revolution, earning the papal epithet "Protector of the Church of France." The present work was printed for Count Alfred Werlé, whose father had inherited the Veuve Clicquot Champagne house from the Widow Clicquot. Alfred took over the operation in 1884 and greatly expanded the Veuve Clicquot-Ponsardin vineyards. The volume subsequently passed into the library of the great collector Jean (or Hans) Furstenberg (1890-1982), who put together one of the finest collections of 18th century books ever assembled. In 1974 the Furstenberg collection was sold en bloc to Dr. Otto Schäfer, whose marvelous library had already become distinguished for its fine and historic bindings. UNIQUE COPY ON VELLUM, printed for M. A. Werlé. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        FIRST ANNUAL REPORT OF THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER TO THE BOARD OF STATE VITICULTURAL COMMISSIONERS, FOR THE YEAR 1881.

      State Officer, J. D. Young, Supt. State Printing, Sacramento 1882 - xl, 174 pp., 2 folding plates, many engraved illustrations in the text; original printed wrappers, 8.75 x 6 inches. Text consists first of Charles Wetmore's Executive report (pp. vii-xl) in which he describes the purpose and scope of the new Commission as well as findings from his own viticultural experiments and visits to grape growers throughout the state. Four Appendices contain: A - Translation of the "Practical Manual of Viticulture for the Reconstitution of Southern French Vineyards" by Pro. Gustave Foex, pp. 1-80; B - Translation of "Studies of Certain Species of Wild Vines of North America" by Prof. M. A. Millardet, pp. 81-108; C - "Bisulphide of Carbon and Sulpho-carbonates" by J. H. Wheeler, pp. 109-160; D - Second Annual Report of the Committee on Phylloxera, Vine Pests, and Diseases of the Vine, pp. 161-174. Folding frontispiece plate (printed by Bosqui) depicts an experimental vineyard with sections treated with 8 different fertilizers; the other folding plate shows a new type of injector for treating soils with carbon bisulphide. Charles Wetmore (1847-1927) first turned his attention to wine-making in 1878 when as a journalist for the Alta California newspaper he wrote an investigative report on the status of California's wine industry, which was then in a state of decline. This began an intensive study of viticulture including a trip to France to learn proven methods of grape culture, vineyard management and winemaking. He disseminated his findings through further articles in the Alta California and was instrumental in persuading the California legislature to create the State Viticultural Commission. In 1882 Wetmore started his own vineyard and winery - Cresta Blanca - in the Livermore Valley. Wetmore planted his vineyard primarily with Sauvignon blanc cuttings from Chateau d'Yqem. His first vintage (1884) was a dry white wine that he entered into the wine competition at the 1889 Paris Exposition (Exposition Universelle de 1889) taking the Grand Prize. Scarce, OCLC locates only 4 copies. Amerine & Borg 672; Chips to edges of wrappers, some loss to wrapper spine area, a few pencil markings to text, pencil notes and sketches to blank last leaf, still a presentable and stable copy of this scarce report [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH OF CHIEF GALL, A HUNKPAPA DAKOTA INDIAN

      William R. Cross, Photographer, n.d. (circa 1882-1887). n.d. (circa 1882-1887) - 6.5" x 4.5" cabinet card image of "Gall, Leader at the Custer Massacre. The Great Orator of the Sioux Nation." A rare image of this important Dakota warrior, leader, and chief. Along with Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, Gall resisted efforts by the U.S. Government to annex the Black Hills. Gall, enraged by the slaughter of his family, led the charge across Medicine Tail Ford to attack Custer's main forces on the other side of the Little Bighorn River. Afterwards Gall accompanied Sitting Bull, escaping to Canada where Gall remained until November, 1880. Gall was first photographed by D.F. Barry at Ft. Buford in northwestern Dakota Territory in 1881. Later known images by D.F. Barry and others date to 1888 and 1894. These later images show a somewhat heavier Gall with a distinctive scar appearing on his chin. The photograph offered here is clean and clear and the scar on his chin appears to be fresh and unhealed, unlike the published later images. The photographer, William R. Cross had a studio in Hot Springs, S.D. and Niobrara, Nebraska, and is known to have done "field-work at the Dakota Reserves." Gall lived on the Standing Rock Reservation from 1881 until his death in December, 1894. The back of this cabinet card is printed: "Photographic Artist. Cross. South of Post-Office, Hot Springs, S.D. Views and Portraits." A fine, exceptional, and rare image of this important Hunkpapa Dakota warrior and chief.

        SPECIMEN DAYS & COLLECT

      Philadelphia: David McKay, 1882-83. FIRST EDITION, Second Issue n. Hardcover. mm (). 376 pp. FIRST EDITION, Second Issue. Publisher's citron cloth titled and decorated in gilt. Myerson A11.1.b2; BAL 12627. Leaves lightly browned (as no doubt in every copy because of paper stock), otherwise AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE COPY, the text clean and fresh, and the binding in immaculate condition. This is an extremely well-preserved copy of the first printing of Whitman's major prose work, a collection of essays that is the most autobiographical of his books. Written in his seventh decade, "Specimen Days" looks back on his early life in New York, and spends a great deal of time on the Civil War period, examining the impact close contact with so much death had on his life and work. The second part of the book contains comments on politics and literature, as well as samples of his juvenile writings. One of the great men of American letters, Whitman (1819-92) is cited by Day as "a source of energy and inspiration, and an indicator of new ways to deal with the subtleties of spiritual truth." Copies of this work are not uncommon, but they are very rarely found in the outstanding condition seen here.

        Contemporary Biography of California's Representative Men with Contributions from Distinguished Scholars and Scientists: Pacific States

      San Francisco, CA: A. L. Bancroft and Company, Publishers. Very Good+. 1882. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. B&W Illustrations; This book is a folio sized volume in a morocco leather binding with gilt lettering and decoration on the front cover and spine of the book. The leather has embossed decorations, gilt rules and five raised bands on the spine. The book is in Very Good+ condition and was likely issued without a dust jacket. The covers have some rubbing wear and beginning fraying to the spine ends and corners. The text pages are clean and bright. Illustrated throughout with full page plates with tissue-guards. The book includes biographies of 107 men who "represent" the Western US, specifically the West Coast including California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska; "to gather a compendium for preservation and reference the lives and portraits of those who have labored side by side in laying the foundations of human greatness upon the shores of the Pacific, is the object of this work. Included also, are essays by John Muir (the Glaciers and Snow Banners of California), John Le Conte (The Lakes of the Pacific Coast), and Caleb T. Fay (Alaska). " Includes a wonderful biography of Texas Ranger John C. "Jack" Hays (1817-1883) on page 62. Hays arrived in California in December 1849 and within five months he was elected sheriff (the first) of San Francisco. He retired in 1853 to begin his appointment as United States surveyor general of California (appointed by President Franklin Pierce) where he was one of the founders of the city of Oakland. " The essay by John Muir appears to be a first and possibly only appearance. .

        KEPT IN THE DARK

      1882. A Novel. In Two Volumes. With a Frontispiece by J. E. Millais, R.A. London: Chatto & Windus, 1882. 32 pp Vol II ads dated July 1882. Original olive cloth decorated in brown and black. First Edition of this potboiler in which young Cecilia Holt's husband is "kept in the dark" regarding her prior engagement to the only man in England whom he cannot abide. This was one of Trollope's last novels (though the first of three that were published by Chatto & Windus): it was published in August or September 1882, and he had a stroke in November -- to which he succumbed five weeks later.~This is a very good set: the volumes were at some point re-cased in their original bindings (preserving the original patterned endpapers), and there is some staining and creasing; each front paste-down bears the label of W.H. Smith's subscription library (Dublin & Belfast) -- such lending libraries were the fate of most all this title's first edition copies. Yet this is nonetheless quite acceptable condition for an uncommon Trollope title (Sadleir places KEPT IN THE DARK in the second of his four "scarcity categories," and considers it one of the very scarcest of Trollope's later works); we have never had a copy approaching fine condition. Sadleir (Trollope) 65; Sadleir (XIX C) p. 382; not in Wolff.

A sumptuous and extremely rare tribute to the British Raj and a detailed history of the princely families in India by the distinguished orientalist Edward Backhouse Eastwick (1814-83), prompted by the proclamation of Queen Victoria as Empress of India in 1876. The first volume contains three cantos, with a translation into Persian verse by Amir Jan, followed by a history of the Nizáms of the Dakan; the second volume contains cantos IV and V with a translation into Hindi verse by Kaviraja Syamala Dasa of Udaipur, followed by a history of the Rájpúts. - The work is beautifully decorated, and illustrated with fine photographic views of palaces, tombs, gates, etc., including the mausoleum of the Emperor Humayún, the tomb of Nizámu'd-dín, the caves of Ajanta, the Palace of Nizám, the Hall of the 66 pillars and the Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India. It further includes photographic portraits and finely chromolithographed coats-of-arms of several members of the English and Indian aristocracy. - The "List of subscribers to the Kaisarnámah i hind and distribution of copies", included in the first volume, lists only 107 copies, which explains its rarity. - Edward Backhouse Eastwick spent some six years in India, serving first as cadet in the infantry and later as interpreter, and another three in Persia. He published a number of well-received translations of Persian literary classics and wrote several books on the cities of India. - Some smudges and spotting, frontispiece portraits pulled loose from the title page, but still attached to the endleaves. The bindings show some wear, the first volume with some stains and scratches and one headband nearly detached. Overall in very good condition.

        A hand-coloured cabinet photograph (coloured image size 133 x 90 mm) of three men in uniform. The photograph is mounted on the gilt-edged card of 'Artist & Photographer Otto von Hartitzsch . 125 Rundle Street, Adelaide'

      - The South Australian Register (Thursday, 16 November 1882) contains an advertisement for the sale of 'the whole of his superior stock-in-trade . of his well-known photographic establishment . in consequence of his relinquishing the profession'. Accordingly, this photograph cannot be later than 1882, but it is probably circa 1880. The young men are in identical uniforms; the only specific clue is the distinctive badge on their forage caps. The extensive hand-colouring obliterates some of the detail, but it is essentially a flag or pennant on a flagpole set within a circle of rope finished off with a square knot. This suggests to us the uniforms are of maritime, if not naval, relevance (and we would not be surprised to learn that the men were foreign visitors to Adelaide).

        Kept in the Dark [Exceedingly Rare True First, published prior to the first UK edition]

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1882. First edition. Wrappers bound in thin boards. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the EXCEEDINGLY RARE TRUE FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING, being the first American edition published prior to the first UK edition and described by Trollope Bibliographer Walter Smith as being of the "utmost rarity", in the Publisher's original newspaper format bound in contemporary thin boards and with the even rarer outer advertisement pages included (some page toning, occasional minor spot of foxing, a minor tear to the lower left corner of the rare outer advertisement wrapper, some tiny closed tear to the page margins, short closed tear to the gutter edge of a number of pages ); Trollope's psychological novel centered on a husband who was "kept in the dark" by his wife about her prior engagement to another man who she had then jilted. Prior to their own marriage, her husband had confided to her the tale of his own prior engagement and, while doing so, spoke with such disdain about any girl who would jilt her lover that she could not bring herself to tell him her own history, even after they had married. Once he became aware of her having jilted another, he obsessed on the matter to such a degree that he eventually deserted her. Of course, the tale goes on beyond that. With respect to the novel, Sadleir, in his Commentary on Trollope, stated: "It is a study of morbid obsession.... Nevertheless it reads agreeably and ranks among the brief studies in individual psychology... as a book which must be read to be realized, and which, when read, will be found to offer genuine, if conventional, Trollope to such as seek him." (Sadleir, p 396.) After serializing the tale in its Harper's Weekly magazine, Harper published the first American edition of the novel on September 29, 1882, prior to the publication of the first UK edition on October 20, 1882. [In the UK, the tale was published in serial format in "Good Words" magazine from May to December, 1882. Thus, the first American edition was published both prior to the completion of the novel's "Good Words" serialization and prior to the UK publication of the novel in book form, making the US first edition the true first edition of the novel.] Smith states: "This new series and its advertising logic sounded the death knell for collectors. First editions in this series are no longer books, but newspapers. Their fragility, format, and ephemeral makeup discouraged most buyers from keeping them.....few have survived." According to Smith, these issues are "rarely seen for sale and are usually found only in private collections and in certain research libraries." [An OCLC WorldCat search made at the time this listing was created revealed only two copies.] An extraordinary opportunity for the Trollope collector. Most Trollope collectors will never see this true first edition, much less own a copy of it. As with Trollope's first novels, the chance to own one is unlikely to arise often, if at all, for almost all collectors. AN EXTREMELY RARE COMPLETE ISSUE OF THE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION OF TROLLOPE'S KEPT IN THE DARK, PUBLISHED PRIOR TO THE FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. A collection distinguishing copy. EXCEEDINGLY RARE.

Viterbo 1229-1274 Lyon), Zeitgenosse des hl. Franziskus von Assisi und Kardinal von Albano "war ein heiliger Ordensmann, ein kluger Oberer, ein gefeierter Prediger, neben Thomas von Aquin der grösste Theologe der Scholastik und der 'Fürst unter allen Mystikern' (Leo XIII). Seine zahlreichen Werke sind öfters gedruckt (kritische Ausgabe, 10 Bände, Quaracchi 1882 bis 1902). Sein Kommentar zu den Sentenzen des Lombarden (besonders zum 3. Buche) ist eine 'theologische Leistung ersten Ranges', an Fülle und Tiefe der Gedanken sowie an Wärme der Darstellung von niemand übertroffen (Bd. 1-4 der genannten Ausgabe)" (etc.; L. Lemmens, in: M. Buchberger, Hsg., Lex. f. Theol. u. Kirche, 2, 1931, sp. 447). - "Der bedeutendste Schüler des Alexander Halensis und die hervorragendste Persönlichkeit der älteren Franziskanerschule war Johannes Fidanza, [..] von dem Stifter des Franziskanerordens [..] Bonaventura zubenannt. [..] Wie die Viktoriner, ist Bonaventura Scholastiker und Mystiker zugleich, was auch deutlich in der Eigenart seiner Schriften zum Ausdruck kommt. Als Freund der scholastischen Methode und durchdrungen von dem Streben nach umfassender theologischer Systematik erweist er sich in seiner bedeutsamsten schriftstellerischen Leistung, die nach dem Vorbild des Wilhelm von Auxerre und insbesondere seines Lehrers Alexander Halensis in der Form des Sentenzenkommentars gehalten ist, nämlich in den umfangreichen Commentarii in quatuor libros sententiarum Petri Lombardi, die [..] die ersten vier Bände der Ausgabe von Quaracchi füllen. [..] Bonaventura ist und will nichts anderes sein als ein Vertreter der alten Schule im Sinne Augustins und des Alexander Halensis [..]. Neuerungen liegen ihm fern. Diesen konservativen Standpunkt hat er selbst klar in seinem Sentenzenkommentar gezeichnet (in Sent. II, praeloc., II. 1 ff.) [..]. Indessen wollte er sich dem Einfluss des mächtig vordringenden Aristotelismus nicht entschlagen. Er kennt die aristotelischen Schriften und Lehren sehr wohl und verwertet sie reichlich. Aristoteles ist für ihn eine Autorität, die er unmittelbar neben Augustin stellt. Trotzdem hält er sich aber nach der Weise der Früheren in vielen über die blosse Dialektik hinausgehenden Fragen vorzüglich an Plato [..]. Wenn manche Autoren, darunter auch die Franziskaner von Quaracchi [..] bemüht waren, auf dem Gebiete der Erkenntnislehre den Unterschied zwischen Augustinus / Bonaventura einerseits und Thomas von Aquin anderseits möglichst klein erscheinen zu lassen oder gänzlich zu verwischen, so ist ein solcher Versuch mit den Quellentexten und mit den historischen Verhältnissen [..] nicht in Einklang zu bringen." (etc.; einlässlich und ausführlich s. Ueberweg 2, 1928, p. 386 f. u. 393). -- Petrus Lombardus (Pietro Lombardo od. Langobardus), geb. bei Novara um 1100-ca. 1160 Paris), auch gen. 'Sentenzenmeister' oder 'Magister'. "Sein Hauptwerk sind die wohl schon vor 1148 begonnenen und um 1150 abgeschlossenen 'Sententiarum libri quatuor' [..]. Sie bieten bei massvoller Anwendung der dialektischen Methode eine systematische, in der Hauptsache positiv gehaltene Zusammenfassung der ganzen Theologie, mit der nach dem Brauch jener Zeit auch eine Reihe philosophischer Fragen eng verknüpft war, regten zu vielen Fragen an, ohne sich selber allzu sehr in Einzelheiten zu verlieren. [..] [.. So] wurden die Sentenzen [I. Gott, II. Schöpfung und Sünde, III. Christologie und Tugendlehre, IV. Sakramente und Eschatologie] doch DAS theologische Handbuch des Mittelalters. [..] Sehr früh wurden dazu Glossen geschrieben [..]; sie wuchsen sich mit dem beginnenden 13. Jahrhundert zu umfangreichen, die Schule beherrschenden Kommentaren aus, welche erst im 16. Jahrhundert durch die Kommentare zur Summa theologigica des hl. Thomas von Aquin verdrängt werden sollten." (A. Landgraf, in: Buchberger, Hsg., 8, 1936, sp. 165-167). - "Die Entwicklung der Sentenzenliteratur knüpft an die Sentenzen der Schule Abaelards an. War schon in der sog. Summa sententiarum der Einfluss Hugos von St. Viktor und Abaelards zusammengelaufen, so vermittelte diese die Einwirkung des grossen Viktoriners an die Sentenzen des Rolandus und Omnebene. Das Schlussglied in dieser Reihe und zugleich der Ausgangspunkt einer neuen Entwicklung sind die Sentenzen des Petrus Lombardus. [..] Petrus Lombardus handelt im ersten Buche von Gott als dem absoluten Gute (qua fruimur), im zweiten von den Kreaturen (quibus utimur), im dritten von der Menschwerdung, von der Erlösung und den Tugenden, im vierten von den sieben Sakramenten als den das Heil vermittelnden Zeichen (signa) und von den letzten Dingen."

        Original Plat Map of the Sbino Otero Ranch Known as "rancho De Otero and House Lot

      - The original plat map of the Sabino Otero Ranch known as Rancho de Otero and House lot located near Tubac, Pima Co. Arizona containing in all 185.70 acres ,confirmation recommended in favor of Sabino Otero, et. al. The map has been preserved in near fine condition, it measure 15" x 19 1/2" and is accompanied by the U.S. Secretary of the Interior Report, 47th Congress, Senate Executive Document, no. 81, January 30, 1882. Designated as "Rancho de Otero and House Lot." Sabino Otero (1846-1914) became known as the "Cattle King of Arizona" and the land upon which he first lived was originally obtained in a land grant to Torrevio de Otero, his great-grandfather in 1789 and confirmed by the Secretary of the Interior in this Plat map on January 30, 1882 (after the Plat map was completed on July 7, 1881). His cattle became increasingly valuable as the U.S. Army needed food during the wars against Geronimo and the Apaches. Besides his extensive work which grew to seven large ranches, he became a mover and shaker in Tucson and was instrumental in found St. Mary's Hospital.

Text: 'Department of the Interior... Geological survey' title. 42 plates, plans and maps, (including 2 chromolithographed views by Sinclair after Holmes, 17 wood-engraved views [8 after Thomas Moran, 9 after Holmes], 4 'Heliotype' plates), 10 double-page. Atlas: Mounted on guards throughout. 1p. letterpress text, otherwise lithographed throughout. Title, 12 double-page map-sheets after Dutton (11 printed in colors), 10 double-page sheets of views after Holmes (9) and Moran (1) (5 chromolithographed and 5 printed in tints), all printed by Julius Bien & Co. Expertly bound to style in deep burgundy-red half morocco over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, spine in six compartments with raised bands, the bands flanked above and below by gilt rules, lettered in the second compartment A fine set of "one of the grandest publications of the scientific expeditions in the American West... [depicting] the Grand Canyon in a series of magnificent panoramas" (Reese & Miles. `Depicting America.' The work includes illustrations by arguably the two greatest American topographical artists to record this era of westward expansion: William Holmes and Thomas Moran. The atlas includes eight beautifully executed maps of the region on twelve sheets, as well as the ten sheets of views. The views include a number of images that are designed to form larger continuous panoramas. The greatest of these is Holmes view from Point Sublime in the Kaibab: the three chromolithographed sheets (numbered XVI-XVII), if joined, would form a single panoramic view with an image area measuring approximately 17 x 90 inches. It is interesting to note that the first of these sheets includes what may be a self-portrait and portrait respectively of Holmes and Dutton: two figures are visible at the edge of the canyon, one is seated and clearly sketching (Holmes) whilst the second figure bends down to examine his companion's work (Dutton). W.H. Holmes, whom William Goetzmann calls "the greatest artist-topographer and man of many talents that the West ever produced...his artistic technique was like no other's. He could sketch panoramas of twisted mountain ranges, sloping monoclines, escarpments, plateaus, canyons, fault blocks, and grassy meadows that accurately depicted hundreds of miles of terrain. They were better than maps and better than photographs because he could get details of stratigraphy that light and shadow obscured from the camera...his illustrations for Dutton's Tertiary History of the Grand Canon District are masterpieces of realism and draftsmanship as well as feats of imaginative observation." The team assembled to carry out this geological survey of the Grand Canyon included some outstanding talents: C.E.Dutton, the scientist; Jack Hilliers, the photographer and of course Holmes and Moran as artist-topographers. The intention of the survey was strictly scientific, but as Dutton writes in his preface, "I have in many places departed from the severe ascetic style which has become conventional in scientific monographs." This is also true of Moran and Holmes: both were clearly inspired by their subjects. The overall result is of a quality that would not be possible today. As Wallace Stegner wrote in his introduction to the 1977 reprint "Later specialization has eliminated from scientific publications most of the elements that make The Tertiary History so charming. No report written as this one is written would now be published by any government bureau. No illustrators like Moran and Holmes would be permitted to illustrate it... A great book... The Tertiary History has kept its value precisely because it does not specialize."
