        Cram's Unrivaled Family Atlas of the World

      Chicago.: Henry S. Stebbins.. Copyright 1882.. Color maps both hand colored and printed, black and white illustrations, decorative endpapers, 122pp, 14 x 12 inches, decorative gilt lettered cloth covered boards (hardbound). Front cover detached, rear hinge starting to split but still attached, covers soiled and rubbed exposing edges of boards, front free endpaper loose, slight insect damage to right margin of title page, short tear to lower left edge of first few pages, toning to Table of Contents page from newspaper article adhered to verso of title page, occasional soiling to outer margins of some pages (not affecting image areas). There is a tear to the lower centrefold of two maps: Alabama etc and the map of Dakota and Manitoba. Overall, a well preserved copy of a scarce volume. This is an interesting transitional atlas from the heyday of the atlas with handcolored plates to the printed color atlas. The maps appear to have been printed with the wax engraved process, with the resulting loss of clarity compared to the engraved atlases of the earlier nineteenth century, but the handcolored maps of the states are decorative and detailed. These, each with decorative oval cartouche title, are titled "New Railroad and County Map..." of: New York; Pennsylvannia, New Jersey, Delaware & Maryland; Virginia & West Virginia; North Carolina; Alabama, Georgia, Sth. Carolina & Northern Florida; Arkansas, Louisiana & Mississippi (interestingly there is a single page printed color map of Florida on the verso of this double page map); Indian Territory and Northern Part of Texas; Southern Part of Texs (sic) with inset of Western Part of Texas; Kentucky & Tennessee; Michigan & Wisconsin; Missouri; Kansas; Nebraska; Colorado; Minnesota; Dakota and Manitoba; Wyoming; Montana and Northern Idaho; Utah; Southern Part of Idaho; Oregon and Washington Territory; New Mexico; Northern California and Nevada; Alaska; Southern California and Arizona. Other maps are printed color. All double page maps are tipped in; most of the maps are double sided. There are also illustrations of Flags of All Nations, Animal and Vegetable Life of the Different Zones, Races of Man, a map of the Solar System, statistics on Comparative Wealth of States, Population & Area information, plus portraits of U.S. Presidents. .

        Lord Palmerston [Exceedingly Scarce First Issue]

      William Isbister, Ltd., 1882, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, First editionA Very Good, and delicate, copy of the scarce first edition, first printing, first issue of Anthony Trollope's brief biography of the great British Prime Minister, Lord Palmerston. Bound in the Publisher's original thin brown boards, the book is mildly askew, shows darkening to the spine, some wear to the spine ends, and some bumping and light rubbing to the board corners, front hinge cracked, foxing to the front free endpaper and title page). This slim volume is the second in a series of books brought out by Isbister in imitation of Macmillan's much more successful series of monographs on English Men of Letters. Isbister's series was a considerable failure and Sadleir states that, to the best of his knowledge, only 3 titles in the series ever were published, the three being this volume, a volume on Sir Robert Peel by G. Barnett Smith, and one on William Pitt by Lewis Sergeant. Sadleir further states this difficult to find Trollope work is "[v]ery uncommon, as would be expected of a volume in an unsuccessful series launched by an unsuccessful publisher." This first edition was issued in 1882 and was never reprinted. Thereafter, the Publisher bound up and issued to the public his remaining first edition sheets with a title page dated 1883, but without any indication that the work had previously appeared.The book itself is exceedingly scarce and we have seen only this copy and one other (that one being a copy of the second issue dated 1883) in over 35 years of diligently searching for Trollope rarities. A Very Good copy of AN EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE TROLLOPE WORK.

Agnes Strickland was a popularizer; though her books were popular and very useful to teachers for many years she is hardly read now?"

        The 'Fan Kwae' at Canton before the Treaty Days 1825-1844

      Kegan Paul, Trench & Co., 1 Paternoster Square, London 1882 - Ostensibly devoted to the history of the foreign factories in mid-nineteenth century Canton: "During the days of Old Canton, the Middle Kingdom deigned to suffer the presence of a small number of 'foreign barbarians' on the banks of the Choo, or Pearl River. Their residences consisted of Factories built expressly for them, and originally destined one for each nationality" (preface).In fact, the book is as much a memoir of Hunter's time in China and recounts his voyage out and studies at the Anglo-Chinese College in Malacca. Hunter's main distinction is, in fact, linguistic: he was "probably the first American to devote himself to the systematic study of the spoken and written Chinese language" (Shavit).Born in Kentucky, William Hunter spent four years apprenticed to the Canton agency of Thomas H. Smith and Sons of New York. He left the firm in 1829 to join Russell and Company, where he eventually became a partner. His commercial activities also extended to part ownership of the Midas, the first American steamship to sail in Chinese waters.In the epilogue, Hunter thanks Robert Benet Forbes, who became the head of Russell and Company in 1840 and later American Vice Consul at Canton. The final page of text bears his annotations. Although widely held in institutions, the book is scarce on the market. Shavit, David; The United States in Asia: A Historical Dictionary (1990) p254 Original black cloth. Some staining to frontispiece and next plate, else VG Frontispiece photo of portrait of Hoqua by Chimmey and another. 157, [3] pp. 8vo [Attributes: First Edition]

        John Inglesant A Romance

      Leipzig:: Bernhard Tauchnitz,, 1882.. Copyright Edition. Painted Vellum. Fine. Fine Binding. 12mo (11 x 15.7 cm). Elaborately painted Vellum over beveled boards. Stylized dragon with armorial shield painted in green, gold and red. Decorated and lettered spine. Printed end papers. Two volumes, bound in one. 319pp, 350pp. Green silk ribbon page marker present. Classical romances such as this tale set in seventeenth century Europe and England were often bound in this highly embellished style and appealed to the genteel traveler, touring Europe during the late nineteen and early twentieth centuries. Due to the transitory nature of these gift books or traveler's editions- few have survived in this fine condition.

Neben diesen umfassenden Werken (d. i. Geßlers Formular und Tutsch rhetorica und Riederers Werke) wurden noch viel begehrte kürzere gedruckt, welche sich auf eine Belehrung über die Titulaturen und die notwendigen Förmlichkeiten beschränketen. Die wichtigsten derselben sind: ... Cantzley büchlein ... Verfaßt wurden alle diese Bücher meist von Kanzleibeamten oder von den Druckern selbst unter Mithilfe solcher 'Schreiber', gedruckt - was nicht übersehen werden möge - der Hauptmasse nach in Augsburg und Straßburg. Bestimmt waren sie in ihrer Mehrzahl zum Gebrauche aller, welche Briefe 'dichten' wollten, 'zu lob und dienst dem gemeynen man', wie Geßler von derartigen Werken vor dem seinen sagt; sie sollten eine Art Nachschlage- und Musterbuch sein für jedermann. ... Die Notare, Kanzleibeamten und sogen. Stulschreiber oder Offenschreiber, die für Geld den im Schreiben und schriftlichen Gedankenausdruck weniger Bewanderten ihre geschäftlichen und rechtlichen Schriftstücke oder gewöhnlichen Briefe fertigten, haben wohl am meisten diese Werke benutzt.
