First edition. In a future England, as dominated by women as Victorian England was by men, the men finally revolt. "An amusing, well-written book ... a pleasant relief from the long-winded novels that Besant wrote with James Rice. The question has arisen whether THE REVOLT OF MAN is not a satire against Victorian male chauvinism, but the indications are that Besant meant the work literally." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 191. The novel was first published anonymously and languished until noticed by the SATURDAY REVIEW, after which the book quickly went through additional printings totaling 9000 copies. "When I say that the advanced woman has never ceased to abuse the book, and the author, its success will be understood." - Besant, Autobiography (1902), p. 212 (quoted in Wolff, XIX Century Fiction).

September 11, 1896) was an American scholar, educator, and folklorist, best known today for his collection of folk songs known as the Child Ballads. Child was Boylston professor of rhetoric and oratory at Harvard University, where he produced influential editions of English poetry. In 1876 he was named Harvard's first Professor of English, a position which allowed him to focus on academic research. It was during this time that he began work on the Child Ballads.  The Child Ballads were published in five volumes between 1882 and 1898. They are a major contribution to the study of English-language folk music.The Child Ballads are a collection of 305 traditional ballads from England and Scotland and their American variants, collected by Francis James Child during the second half of the 19th century. Their lyrics and Child's studies of them were published as The English and Scottish Popular Ballads, a work of 2,500 pages. The tunes of most of the ballads were collected and published by Bertrand Harris Bronson in and around the 1960s.The ballads vary in age; for instance, the manuscript of "Judas" dates to the thirteenth century and a version of "A Gest of Robyn Hode" was printed in the late fifteenth or early sixteenth century. The majority of the ballads, however, date to the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Although some probably have very ancient influences, only a handful can be definitively traced to before 1600. Moreover, few of the tunes collected are as old as the words. Nevertheless, Child's collection was far more comprehensive than any previous collection of ballads in English.Child Ballads are generally heavier and darker than is usual for ballads. Some of the topics and other features characteristic enough of Child Ballads to be considered Child Ballad motifs are these: romance, enchantment, devotion, determination, obsession, jealousy, forbidden love, insanity, hallucination, uncertainty of one's sanity, the ease with which the truth can be suppressed temporarily, supernatural experiences, supernatural deeds, half-human creatures, teenagers, family strife, the boldness of outlaws, abuse of authority, betting, lust, death, karma, punishment, sin, morality, vanity, folly, dignity, nobility, honor, loyalty, dishonor, riddles, historical events, omens, fate, trust, shock, deception, disguise, treachery, disappointment, revenge, violence, murder, cruelty, combat, courage, escape, exile, rescue, forgiveness, being tested, human weaknesses, and folk heroes.Condition:Conditions are Very Good/Excellent.  Small wear to edges, one upper front corner had a ding/missing a little leather/colored over, few other small marks to leather, small blemish on a couple pages, pages/hinges/text blocks are very good/excellent for over 125 years old!!!

        Crónica de la Orden de N. Seráfico P. S. Francisco, Provincia de San Pedro y San Pablo de Mechoacán en la Nueva España

      xv+488 pages with appendices. Octavo (8 1/2" x 5") bound in quarter leather with gilt lettering to spine in stiff boards. From the library of Professor George M Foster. Second edition.Alonso de la Rea was born in Queretaro in 1610. He wrote his Cronica in 1637-1639, providing data on Michoacán and Jalisco. For many matters he leaned heavily on Torquemada, who in turn had copied them from Mendieta. Ricard, quoting an 18th century opinion, mentions that Rea lacked interest in chronology to an excessive degree. His work was however, an official and methodical chronicle of the province, preserving considerable detail about it. Rea's Cronica ... 1639 was first published in 1643, and is now a bibliographical rarity. The volume is divided into three books, totaling 92 chapter. Book 1 describes the region, products, people, their dealings with Aztecs, their general traits, religious rites, the last native emperors, and coming of the Spaniards. This is followed by arrival of the Franciscan missionaries, with biographies of some of these pioneer friars. Book 2 begins with the division of the province between Michoacán and Jalisco (1606) and contains numerous biographies of the members of that order. Book 3 is also a series of lives and an account of the Custodio del Rio Verde. The second edition was published in Mexico (1882). It includes additional relevant documents in three appendices. At the end of the text there is a table of contents, but no index.George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.Condition:Foster's stamp to title. Corners bumped, edge wear to boards, rubbing to paper boards else a very good copy.

        The Holy Bible [1882 George V Jones specially bound Pictorial Family Bible and Brass Lectern]

      Boston, Mass.: George V. Jones, No. 123 Pearl St.. [1882]. Large thick quarto. Various paginations. Containing the Old and New Testaments (with both versions of the New Testament); the Apocrypha; a complete Concordance; 100,000 marginal references, etc. Illustrated with color lithographic plates and maps, steel-engraved and wood-engraved plates, and wood-engraved illustrations throughout the text. Bound in at the back are two double-sided color lithographic cardboard sleeves with mounting slots to accommodate 16 family portraits. A rare and beautifully preserved pictorial family bible bound in elaborate gilt-decorated paneled morocco with metal clasps.A bright, fine copy housed in the publisher's very good original cardboard box with a printed paper label. A binder's ticket on the back pastedown further identifies this edition as having been both published and bound by: "Geo. V. Jones & Co., booksellers and bookbinders" in Boston. The binding is signed with a small copyright date in gold ("copyrighted 1881"), and an advertisement printed on the verso of a leaf at the front makes it known that the Bible won the highest prize at an International Exposition in December, 1881: "... the designs and workmanship being of the very best." Laid-in is an eight-page publisher's catalog: "Announcement for 1883," so we think it safe to attribute a date of 1882 to this volume. The Bible is also remarkable for its many fine engraved and lithographic plates printed in multiple colors. All are bright, pristine impressions of high artistic accomplishment, printed on high quality thick paper sheets, with pristine tissue guards. The steel engravings are printed on uncoated sheets, and the wood-engraved plates are printed on lightly coated sheets.The volume is accompanied by an equally fine brass lectern featuring open arabesque metal work on its four rectangular sides, the Last Supper depicted in relief on the front, and an adjustable top piece pierced with an open leaf pattern surrounding the IHS monogram. A brass plate on the back is engraved: "Darovala M.V.B.B., A.D. 1925." OCLC locates only one copy of this Bible at the American Antiquarian Society, which they acquired from the Mark Craig Collection of signed Bookbindings. .

        The Holy Bible [1882 George V. Jones specially bound Pictorial Family Bible and Brass Lectern]

      Boston, Mass.: George V. Jones, No. 123 Pearl St.. [1882]. Large thick quarto. Various paginations. Containing the Old and New Testaments (with both versions of the New Testament); the Apocrypha; a complete Concordance; 100,000 marginal references, etc. Illustrated with color lithographic plates and maps, steel-engraved and wood-engraved plates, and wood-engraved illustrations throughout the text. Bound in at the back are two double-sided color lithographic cardboard sleeves with mounting slots to accommodate 16 family portraits. A rare and beautifully preserved pictorial family bible bound in elaborate gilt-decorated paneled morocco with metal clasps.A bright, fine copy housed in the publisher's very good original cardboard box with a printed paper label. A binder's ticket on the back pastedown further identifies this edition as having been both published and bound by: "Geo. V. Jones & Co., booksellers and bookbinders" in Boston. The binding is signed with a small copyright date in gold ("copyrighted 1881"), and an advertisement printed on the verso of a leaf at the front makes it known that the Bible won the highest prize at an International Exposition in December, 1881: "... the designs and workmanship being of the very best." Laid-in is an eight-page publisher's catalog: "Announcement for 1883," so we think it safe to attribute a date of 1882 to this volume. The Bible is also remarkable for its many fine engraved and lithographic plates printed in multiple colors. All are bright, pristine impressions of high artistic accomplishment, printed on high quality thick paper sheets, with pristine tissue guards. The steel engravings are printed on uncoated sheets, and the wood-engraved plates are printed on lightly coated sheets.The volume is accompanied by an equally fine brass lectern featuring open arabesque metal work on its four rectangular sides, the Last Supper depicted in relief on the front, and an adjustable top piece pierced with an open leaf pattern surrounding the IHS monogram. A brass plate on the back is engraved: "Darovala M.V.B.B., A.D. 1925." OCLC locates only one copy of this Bible at the American Antiquarian Society, which they acquired from the Mark Craig Collection of signed Bookbindings. .

        Fish and Fisheries of New South Wales

      Sydney: Thomas Richards, 1882. Large octavo, frontispiece and 45 plates, illustrated, a little browned; very good copy in half black morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt, very gently rubbed. A very good copy of this seminal work on the fishes of New South Wales.Tenison-Woods (1832-1889), was a Catholic priest, educationist and scientist. He sailed for Van Diemen's Land in 1854, but after a disagreement with a Bishop, soon relocated to Adelaide, where he would help Mother Mary MacKillop found the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart at Penola in 1866. The next year, he accepted the positions of director-general of Catholic schools and secretary and chaplain to Bishop Sheil.At the same time, he was an accurate observer of the physical world and made original contributions to Australian geology, palaeontology and zoology. He travelled widely and published over 150 papers in the journals and transactions of Australian learned societies and overseas periodicals. In this work he made a comprehensive survey of the fishes of the Colony, and it was designed to make available a popular account of the findings of the 1880 Royal Commission on the Fisheries of New South Wales. William III of the Netherlands gave Tenison-Woods a gold medal for the book.

        Looking up the Toroweap from Vulcans Throne

      - A wonderfully detailed chromolithographic view by William Holmes and Thomas Moran from Clarence Edward Dutton’s sweeping series "Tertiary History of the Grand Cañon District" published by Julius Bien in Washington in 1882. This print measures 20” x 33”. These magnificent, large-scale panoramic views were included in Clarence Edward Dutton’s "Tertiary History of the Grand Cañon District", a publication that has elicited superlatives from every critic, and is certainly worthy of Francis Farquhar's description of it as "one of the greatest if not the greatest of all Grand Canyon books." Originally published in 1882, Dutton’s definitive work was commissioned as a study of the region’s geology and issued by the fledgling U.S. Geological Survey. Today it is admired as much for its stunning views, contributed by noted artists Thomas Moran and William Holmes, as for its scientific merit. Most of the views were the work of Holmes, an artist-cum-geologist who managed to transmute the rocky strata of the site into golden panoramas that continue to startle viewers as no other canyon art ever has. Although photography had been developed forty years before, and many photographers like Timothy O’Sullivan had already been to the Grand Canyon to take pictures, Holmes’s precision in drawing was able to do what the photo technology of the time could not -- cut through the haze and glare to reveal the canyon in perfect focus, with all of its strata together giving a glimpse of its history more revealing than any picture. Holmes’s imagery expressed visually Dutton’s notion that the Grand Canyon was “a great innovation in modern ideas of scenery, and in our conceptions of the grandeur, beauty, and power of nature.” Overall this print is in very good condition with some light foxing/staining and a few very small tears along edges.

I: "Ich grüße dich, du wunderbarer Duft, | Der sich in diesen zarten Kelchen wieget, | Du Schiff, worin durch dunkelblaue Luft | Die Seel' entzückt nach fernen Ufern flieget. | Das Steuer ist ein alter, alter Traum | Von andern Zeiten, himmelschönen Auen, | Gold ist der königlichen Ströme Schaum, | Und hohe, schlanke Palmen sind zu schauen. | Die Lotosblume schwimmt auf blauer Fluth; | Die Welle scheint mit holder Scham zu fragen: | Welch Wunder ihr im keuschen Schoose ruht? | Doch nur die Kinder wissen es zu sagen". - Beide Gedichte erschienen erstmals 1882 in "Lyrische Gänge"; nach einem Eintrag von fremder Hand am Kopf dürften sie in den Jahren 1830/1835 entstanden sein.
