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.

        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.

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.

        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).
