      - 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.

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.

        Tertiary History [with: Atlas to accompany the monograph on the tertiary history] of the Grand Cañon district

      Washington: [text:] Government Printing Office, [atlas: Julius Bien & Co. of New York (for the Government Printing Office)], 1882. 2 volumes, quarto (11 ½ x 9 inches) and folio (19 7/8 x 17 ½ inches). 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." Francis P.Farquhar, The Books of the Colorado River & the Grand Canyon (Los Angeles: 1953) 73; Goetzmann Exploration and Empire pp. 512-513; W.B.Reese & G.A.Miles Creating America (New Haven: 1992) 40.

About the author: 'Victor-Honoré Guerin, who had once studied at the French archaeological school in Athens, was one of the better known French scholars to excavate in Palestine, which he visited seven times between 1854 and 1888. Although he did not distinguish himself by any great archaeological discovery, he was a prolific and widely-read writer in the subject. La Terre Sainte was a popular work based on his far longer Description géographique, historique et archéologique de la Palestine, the seven volumes of which appeared between 1868 and 1880. With its fine engravings and woodcuts and its vivid descriptions of Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, Galilee, Mount Hermon, Damascus, Palmyra, Baalbek, Petra, Sinai and Egypt, La Terre Sainte provided an attractive introduction to the latest archaeological discoveries and a guide to the Near East' (Alastair Hamilton, Europe and the Arab world p. 192).

        Brief Description of the Algebra of Relatives.

      [Privately published] [1882], [Baltimore] - [1]-6 pages. Quarto, 9¼" x 11¾". First Edition Offprint (Ketner P00220).The Rare Private Printing of Brief Description of the Algebra of Relatives.The Brief Description of the Algebra of Relatives, was privately printed by Peirce in 1882, but distributed to very few people. That year, while teaching a short course in the logic of relatives at Johns Hopkins University, he heard from his students some details of a course on universal multiple algebra being taught by another mathematician, James Joseph Sylvester. "Peirce was convinced that Sylvester's universal algebra was only a case, or interpretation, of his own logic of relatives, and he decided to write out his system in a way that would demonstrate this relationship. He especially wanted to present his logic of relatives in a manner that would interest Sylvester." Once again, Peirce's lack of hubris and his ever-challenged social skills resulted in just the opposite. Sylvester was offended by this new, short paper and suggested that Peirce withhold publication of it until his own course was at least finished. This made no sense to Peirce who could not understand, as he said in a letter, why Sylvester "seem to be vexed with me." He went on to have the paper printed at his own expense (in a small, but unknown quantity), but checked with Daniel Coit Gilman, the President of Johns Hopkins University, before distributing it and was advised to "keep back the issue." Peirce did so grudgingly, circulating very few copies to close friends (while peevishly noting in his diary "Sylvester is a cad"). Schroeder, for one, did receive a copy, but when attempting to cite the paper years later, had to write to Peirce asking him where the piece had been published (this is not indicated on the copy although it was surely Baltimore). (See Writings of Charles S. Peirce: 1879-1884, Indiana University Press, 1989, pp. lii-liv.) Original privately printed light green cover with some browning and one minor chip to the top center front cover and another to the rear wrapper the lower left corner. Otherwise a fine copy of this piece privately printed by Peirce. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

In marbled case. 1f. (title), [12], [ii] (blank staves) pp. Notated in black ink on printed 12-stave music paper with both staff lines and decorative border printed in green. A signed presentation copy with inscription to head of title: "Frau Paula v. Goldschmidt in Bewunderung u[nd] Verehrung... Hugo Wolf." Caption titles with text credits and dates of composition, as follows: "Morgenthau. (aus einem alten Liederbuche [anonymous])"; dated "Windischgraz am 6. Juni 1877." In D major. "Das Vöglein. (Friedr[ich] Hebbel)"; dated "Wien am 2. Mai 1878." In E major. "Die Spinnerin. (Friedr[ich] Rückert)"; dated "Wien am 5. April 1878." In A minor. "Mausfallen-Sprüchlein. (Ed[uard] Mörike)"; dated "Maierling am 18. Juni [1]882." In E-flat major. Provenance: The Viennese antiquarian Heinrich Hinterberger (1892-1970), Kat. XIII, [1935]; Werner-Eberhard Müller, with manuscript note in pencil to verso of front endpaper: "Werner-Eberhard Müller Leipzig 1937 Seiner lieben Susi zu eigen." Slightly worn; minor creasing; first and last leaves and lower outer corners slightly soiled. . Jestremski pp. 126; 131 (101|1 ); 133 (101|2 ), 134 (101|3 ); 138 (101|6 ). Hinterberger Katalog XIII [1935], no. 70. Sams 1-3 and 6. Walker p. 503. Jestremski (p. 130) tentatively ascribes the text of no. 1 to Albert Reinhold. She gives the incipit of no. 4 (p. 138) in F major (not commenting on her source); the other three songs are in the same keys as their respective incipits in the HWW, but the accompaniment of no. 1 is different: the present manuscript has the left hand of the first two measures in octaves throughout. "Wolf had compiled collections or cycles of his songs and tried to have them published a number of times. He was successful only in early 1888 with his Sechs Lieder für eine Frauenstimme. For this compilation he selected compositions from various periods: Morgentau ([HWW] 101|1; June 1877)..., Das Vöglein (101|2) and Die Spinnerin (101|3; both spring 1878), Mausfallen-Sprüchlein (101|6); June 1882) and the two Wiegenlieder (101|4 and 101|5; December 1882). "Before the completion of the Wiegenlieder, Wolf had compiled a volume of four songs as a presentation copy... for Paula Goldschmidt as she had often performed the Mausfallen-Sprüchlein in Viennese salons: 'Among other things, she also sings the Mausfallen-Sprüchlein, which I composed for Mitz [i.e., Mitzi Werner] who didn't consider it worth looking at while Frau Paula von Goldschmidt is celebrating triumphs with it at parties. She doesn't sing anything but my Mausfallensprüchlein anymore; I have also dedicated it to her' ([Wolf] to Bertha von Lackhner, October 10, 1882)." Jestremski p. 126. "The endearing little Morgentau [Morning dew] [was] the earliest of his compositions that Wolf, at the time of his maturity, still thought good enough for publication... The playful Vöglein [Little bird], with its chirruping, fluttering accompaniment, so beautifully written for the piano... strikes a perfectly individual note of fresh, delicate humour that we recognize as peculiarly Wolfian... Die Spinnerin [The spinner], a delightful character-sketch of a young girl conscious of the stirring of the spring... has the same lightness of touch and beauty of workmanship... Mausfallensprüchlein [Mouse-trap incantation] [is] a little song... to be sung while walking three times around a mouse-trap. Its practical value as an aid to trap, cat, and poison has yet to be proved, but regarded from a purely artistic standpoint the Mausfallensprüchlein is simply enchanting. So sprightly and delicate a sense of humour had hardly before found expression in music. The tiny piece scurries by with inimitable youthful grace—an authentic Wolfian masterpiece in miniature." Walker: Hugo Wolf, pp. 47, 63-64, 131. The dedicatee, Paula (von) Goldschmidt (née Kunz, born 1854, was the wife of composer Adalbert von Goldschmidt, (1848-1906). A highly attractive and finely executed manuscript, not on the market for over 80 years.

        Traité de l'art des accouchements

      Lauwereyns, puis Steinheil-1886-1898-1901, Paris 1882 - 4 volumes grand in-8. Collation : XII, 956 / (4), 586 / VI, 771 / XIX, 754 pp. Demi-chagrin noir, filets dorés, dos à nerfs. (Reliure de l'époque.). _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Première édition. Dans sa préface (Décembre 1881) Stéphane Tarnier s'explique sur le but de son ouvrage. "Après avoir écrit le texte des 3e et 4e sections de l' "Atlas" de Lenoir, revu et annoté les quatre dernières éditions de Cazeaux, j'avais acquis la conviction que ces livres malgré leur succès permanent de librairie, devenaient insuffisants au point de vue scientifique, et qu'il y aurait un grand intérêt à faire paraître un traité d'obstétrique, dont le cadre serait assez large pour qu'il put contenir le résumé des nombreux progrès accomplis depuis quelques années dans l'art des accouchements." Illustré par plus de 750 figures dans le texte. Contient : Tome 1. Grossesse et accouchement physiologiques. T. 2. Pathologie de la grossesse. T. 3 Dystocie maternelle. T. 4 Dystocie foetale. Accidents de la délivrance. Opérations. Infections puerpérales. Le tome 1 est rédigé par S. Tarnier et G. Chantreuil et les tomes 2-4 par Tarnier et Pierre Budin qui a achevé l'ouvrage, Tarnier étant mort en 1897. Une auréole en coin sur le 2e volume, papier un peu bruni, petit accroc à une coiffe. Bon exemplaire de ce livre étonnamment rare et qui semble avoir été un échec commercial; il en existe très peu d'exemplaires complets dans les bibliothèques publiques.

        Autograph Letter Signed to [William T. Stead], editor of the Pall Mall Gazette, 1 page 8vo with integral blank, headed paper of Waldemere, Bridgeport, CT, no date.

      - Expressing his intention 'to place the great show (Jumbo included) in London and the Provinces' and asking Stead to send him the relevant copy of the Gazette should he publish 'the enclosed, or any remarks concerning it'. Barnum may have written this letter in the spring of 1882, shortly after he purchased Jumbo from London Zoo for $10,000. The largest elephant then in captivity, he had been one of the zoo's main attractions for over 15 years and the British public were outraged by the sale. On 24 February 1882 the Pall Mall Gazette published 'Mr Barnum's Message to England', which was the telegram sent by Barnum to the editor of the Daily Telegraph in an attempt to assuage 'the anxiety of the English children for the retention of Jumbo in this country': 'Fifty millions of American citizens anxiously awaiting Jumbo's arrival. My forty years' invariable practice of exhibiting best that money could procure makes Jumbo's presence here imperative. Hundred thousand pounds would be no inducement to cancel purchase. In December next I visit Australia . Following summer to London. I shall then exhibit in every prominent city in Great Britain. May afterwards return Jumbo to his old position in Royal Zoological Gardens .'. Jumbo was transported to America in March and never returned to Britain.Stead was to lose his life in the sinking of the Titanic (15 April 1912).

        The Horse in Motion

      1882. ILLUSTRATED AFTER ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS BY EADWEARD MUYBRIDGE [HORSES]. The Horse in Motion, as Shown by Instantaneous Photography with a Study on Animal Mechanics, Founded on Anatomy and the Revelations of the Camera, in which is demonstrated the Theory of Quadrupedal Locomotion. By J.D.B. Stillman. Executed and Published under the auspices of Leland Stanford. viii, [9]-127 pp. Illustrated with 107 plates, including 100 lithographs (9 in colour) and 7 collotypes, and 12 line-engravings in the text, mainly after original photographs by Eadweard Muybridge. Large 4to., 304 x 240 mm, bound in original brown publisher's cloth, embossed and gilt to an equestrian motif, t.e.g. Boston: James R. Osgood, 1882. |~||~||~||~| First Edition in the original cloth of this classic work on the horse, produced by Leland Stanford and illustrated with lithographs after original photographs by Muybridge. The Horse in Motion -- the precursor of Muybridge's equally famous work of "Animal Locomotion" -- is one of the key documents in the development of motion pictures. The book is the result of an investigation undertaken in order to settle a wager struck by Governor Leleand Stanford, builder of the Central Pacific Railroad. The photographs were taken by Muybridge via an innovative arrangement of 24 sequential cameras. The results demolished all previous notions regarding the movement of the horse, and proved that trotting horses really do have all four feet off the ground at some point. Stanford won his bet, and Muybridge was launched on a career in which he took photographs of dogs and other animals in action, and then of humans, sitting, walking and running: "photographs that were almost as influencial to the artistic world as these equine sequences" (John Fairley, Racing in Art, 1940, pp. 116-118). Title page with a little foxing, light rubbing to back board, foot of spine with some wear, otherwise a clean, sound copy. Mellon Collection no. 222 (with two reproductions). Gernsheim, p. 437. See also Eadweard Muybridge: The Stanford Years (1872-1882) p. 80 and passim.
