        The Annexation of the Punjaub, and the Maharajah Duleep Singh

      London Trubner 1882 - First edition. 8vo., 108 pp., original reddish-brown blind-stamped cloth gilt, spine faded, covers soiled, a very good copy. Thomas Evans Bell (1825–1887) was an English Indian army officer and writer. In 1841 he went to Madras in the East India Company's service. Bell was strongly critical of the East India Company, and its impact on peasant proprietorship in India. After the Indian Rebellion of 1857, Bell lost his position in Nagpur, for complaining over the head of his immediate superior about the treatment of the Ranis of the Nagpur kingdom. In Madras in the early 1860s, he was secretary of the Madras Literary Society, and edited its Madras Journal in 1861. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Essai sur L'histoire Naturelle des Vertebres de la Province et des Departements Circonvoisins: Vertebres Anallantantoidiens (Poissons et Batraciens)

      Marseillie: Marius Lebon, 1882. First edition.. The spine is sunned which has caused the leather to turn into golden tan, the title is fully readable on the spine, the text is clean and unused with some pages uncut and unopened; a tight and clean copy in very good condition.. Pp. (7), 8-425 (3, index); 44 text-figures (line-drawings and halftones of fishes and frogs). Publisher's original reddish cloth over marbled boards, the spine is lettered in gilt and with blind-stamped panel lines, original marbled endpapers, sm 4to (10 x 6.5 inches; 255 x 170 mm). This work provides a natural history of the fishes and amphibians inhabiting the southern provinces of France. Jean Marius Francois Reguis (1850-1908) studied pharmacy at the School of Medicine in Marseille where he studied under Charles Lespes, Antoine-Fortune Marion, Alphonse Derbs, and Edouard Marie Heckel. After finishing his education, he moved to Meyrargues in southwest France to begin his studies on the batrachians, reptiles, birds, mammals, anthropology, invertebrates, botany, and geology of the area. He later joined the Faculty of Sciences at Marseille when he began writing a 16 volume encyclopedia on the natural history of southern France. Between 1876 and 1904 he published numerous monographs and journal articles on these topics, but they were never formally organized into his encyclopedia. This book appears to be one of the volumes in Regius' proposed encyclopedia. This volume has long tables of the species Regius described in the volume. Due to the extreme scarcity of the work, this volume was likely published in an edition of 500 copies or less. All of his published works are very hard to find. Regius died in 1908 after a lifetime of studying zoology, mycology, and botany of southern France. This volume is warmly inscribed by the author to F. Letarte of Paris, dated July 30, 1882. Later from the library of ichthyologist J. Bohlke with his small name stamp at the bottom of the title page and the dedication page. A rare regional work that seldom comes up for sale.

        THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER

      Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1882. First American Edition, first issue with Franklin Press imprint. This book was the first of Clemens' works to have an historical rather than contemporary setting, in this case Tudor England. Henry VIII's only son, Prince Edward, and a beggar's child, Tom Canty, switch identities and learn a great deal about life in the process. The prince's experience of the brutal life among the poorer classes allowed Clemens to comment on social injustice, a recurring issue in his works as a whole. "Prince and the Pauper," like all of Twain's novels, was available by subscription in a choice of bindings; the more expensive deluxe bindings show up much less frequently than regular cloth, and, unlike here, they are almost invariably restored or rebound.. 220 x 165 mm. (8 5/8 x 6 1/2"). First American Edition, first issue with Franklin Press imprint. Publisher's deluxe binding of half calf over marbled boards, smooth spine with gilt compartments, one red and one black label, marbled endpapers and edges. With 192 illustrations in the text. BAL 3402. Calf a bit soiled and marked, extremities somewhat worn, lower board chafed, but the binding structurally sound and not without appeal. An excellent copy internally, very smooth and clean, with virtually no signs of use.

        Bevis. The Story of a Boy. Complete in three volumes.

      Sampson, Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, London(1882). First edition - complete in three volumes. Miller & Matthews' primary printing and binding. 8vo. 287pp, 294pp and 294pp. Green cloth, lettered in gold at spines with a black- and gold-stamped decoration to the upper boards. Decorated endpapers. The bindings of all three volumes shaken and quite tender, cracked at a number of gatherings but holding. Spine heads rubbed and with just a touch of light chafing to corner tips. Endpapers a little browned, with a touch of light spotting to edges, and preliminary and concluding leaves. Former owner name and date (1938) neatly inked to a blank flyleaf in each volume. Really quite a bright if tender set of Jefferies' boyhood classic, the sequel to 'Wood Magic' (1881): really quite uncommon in this primary green binding (there is some considerable debate over the priority between the green and brown bindings, and here I bow to George Miller's proven scholarship in deducing the green set over the brown see Miller & Matthews B15.1). Produced in a likely print run of between 750 and 1,000 copies. Only the second such set we have had in over a decade.. Book Condition: Good. Binding: Hardcover

        Two manuscript and printed Chinese military albums, with integral notes, and translations of the text, and French titling: "Clef des Manoeuvres Anciennes des Chinois", and "Dessin des Manoeuvres a l'Europeenne", prepared by Frandon for the French Ministère des Affaires Etrangères

      [China 1882 - (22 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches). First volume: 18 double-page coloured images with woodcut, hand-coloured, colour-printed, letterpress and manuscript elements, depicting military battle formation plans (exercises 1-9 and 9 general formations), mounted to form a concertina fold-out, the mounts with blue/green silked edges; Second volume: double page manuscript introduction by Frandon bound in at the end, 24 double-page coloured images with woodcut, hand-coloured, colour-printed, letterpress and manuscript elements depicting military formation plans (exercises 1-24), mounted to form a concertina fold-out, the mounts with blue/green silked edges. Uniform binding of typical form: bevelled wooden boards, the upper cover of each work with the titles in Chinese characters cut out of black velvet mounted on gilt and red paper backing, with a manuscript title in French in black ink on red paper framed with card, each volume within a modern red cloth chemise, all contained within a single red morocco-backed cloth, spine gilt Provenance: Ernest Louis François Paul Frandon (1842-1904, signatures, text, etc.) A unique pair of manuscript Chinese military albums: a relic of the Sino-French War of 1883-1885. Ernest Frandon enjoyed a long and distinguished diplomatic career most of which was spent in a part of the world of great interest to France. Frandon describes this career in some detail in the manuscript 'Etat de Services' which he submitted when he was being considered for a Legion d'Honneur award in 1891. After working briefly in Spain, Frandon moved to Yokohama in November 1880. In November 1882 he received his first posting to China in Shanghai. His work on the present albums date to the period from April 1883 when he was appointed 'gerant' or manager at the French Vice Consulat at Foutcheou (Fuzhow) in Fujian province. From July 1884 until the beginning of March 1885 he served in Calcutta, before being appointed Vice Consul in Kobe, Japan. He remained there for less than a year before returning to Fuzhow as French Vice Consul at the end of June 1885 where he appears to have remained for the rest of his active career (he retired in 1900). The early period of Frandon's first tour in Fuzhow seems to have been particularly eventful: he was able to provide important information about the harbour at Fuzhow, the Chinese fleet and the new naval yard (built under the supervision of Frenchmen). This all proved to be very useful to Admiral Amedee Courbet during the battle of Fuzhow when the vessels of the French Far East Squadron virtually destroyed the Fujian Fleet, one of China's four regional fleets. Specifically, in his 'Etat de Services' he notes that he sent a report on the defences of Fuzhow and that he found for Courbet the pilots necessary for the fleet to gain entry to the harbour. It appears that the gathering of military and naval intelligence was a significant part of Frandon's duties, and the present albums fall squarely into that category. In fact, according to his 'Etat de Services', Frandon clearly made maximum use of his command of languages during his diplomatic career and submitted a great many well-received reports on numerous aspects of his host nations' life and character. These appear to have varied widely in form, from straight-forward written reports, to the present albums which appear to be specifically referred to by Frandon, as reports on "les excercises militaries Chinois" and "les Forces militaries du Celeste Empire et l'effectif Europeen necessaire pour les vaincre." Frandon is also responsible for specially-commissioned albums of photographs of Chinese manufactured goods (these were exhibited recently to wide acclaim), to actual samples of 'native' goods and manufactures, to 'native' plants, all of which he collected and sent them back to France. Taking a pair of traditional military text-books as his starting point, Frandon here explains (in red ink) and interprets (in black ink) the text and diagrams. As he states in [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Poet's Harvest Home

      London: Eliot Stock, 1882. pp (xi) 155. 12mo (6 1/2" x 4 1/4"). A rare Presentation Copy from the author, William Bell Scott to his friend, Professor John Nichol, "with affectionate remembs... November 1882". Featuring original engraved artwork within oval frames by the author on front board, title page, as well as two additional within. In cream-colored binding with title, author and illustration in red ink on front board; spine plain, with red title and author and paper sticker in old ink. Engraved Bookplate inside front cover: University of Aberdeen, English Class Library (in old ink). Also rubber stamped in red: "withdrawn from Aberdeen University Library." Condition: overall Very Good, with heavy dust-soiling to spine and less so to covers. T.e.g.,otherwise the laid paper pages are untrimmed and charmingly offset. Ungilt edges are age somewhat age-toned, elsewise, interior pages are clean and tight. One small tear to page 5. One small edit in ink, p. 153 (could be by author's hand). Numerous engraved initial caps and dingbats contained within. Dedicated to W.M. Rossetti; this volume was published only a day before the demise of D.G. Rossetti, William's bother and Scott's dear friend. Signed presentation copies were despatched to many of his friends of the Pre-Raphaelite circle: C. Rossetti, Swinburne, Holman Hunt, as well as William Morris. Scott’s Autobiographical Notes (1892) records the touching notes and verses sent him in thanks by Christina Rossetti and Swinburne; Morris congratulates him on a well-produced book. These missives recognize the mutual loss felt by the group of artists. Scott could not attend Rossetti's funeral , being ill. This volume was, in fact, Scott’s valedictory work of poetry, written when he was seventy years old and entering a period of decline due to angina pectoris which severely limited his travel. He would die in November of 1890. Scott records in the Notes that he wrote A Harvest Home "without premeditation and with quite a novel feeling of spontaneity... every line to be employed in its development, came to me as if from memory, they were written down in pencil on pieces of paper I had placed under my pillow the night before." (Vol.2,pp. 303-304.) *** The recipient of this copy, PROFESSOR JOHN NICHOL, (1833-1894) was the first Regius Professor of English Language and Literature at the University of Glasgow. The son of an academic, Nichol was an accomplished biographer, essayist, literary critic, lecturer and sometime poet. Warm correspondence spanning the 1880's exists between Nichol and Bell (See Memoir of John Nichol, J. Maclehose, Glasgow, 1896) wherein Bell comments on Nichols's The Death of Theistodes and Other Poems which Bell declares "rouse (him) like the sound of a trumpet." The two visited each other in Ayrshire, and Nichol attended Bell's funeral in 1890. . Signed by author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good-.

        Large collection of 85 books and magazines by and about Jean Lorrain.

      58 early books (from 1882 to 1957) and 20 more recent ones, including 4 translations (into Dutch and English). Plus 2 old books that mention Lorrain sidedishwise, and 5 fin de siècle magazines. Please ask for a complete description.l Jean Lorrain (1855-1906), a symbolist writer turned decadentistic, presenting himself as a 'dandy of the mire', catering gothic novelettes, but also chronicles of contemporary life, full of slurs and slander to the sensation-hungry reader. A great stylist, a master of masks who tampered with drugs, dying as a syphilitic and drug addict. His doting mother lived on for another 20 years, providing material to his Eckermann, the author Georges Normandy who was able to enhance Lorrains reputation as an author in the 20s and 30s. Never quite forgotten, there was a Lorrain revival in the carefree Sixties and the studious Eighties, fostering many publications also included in this collection. This is an arsenal of 44 different early titles with 14 reprints and differring duplicates, comprising 5 books with a lengthy dedication by Jean Lorrain, 3 with inserted letters by him and 2 with autograph poems his first three titles, nice original illustrated wrappers and some fantastically illustrated books. Added: two dozen books and other publications about Lorrain. This collection, measuring more than two shelves, is a grandiose addition for any Lorrain specialist or library.

Macdonald (1850-1929) arrived in the Shire Highlands in July 1878 as the first ordained minister of the newly-established Church of Scotland mission at Blantyre. During his tenure the mission assumed control of what Macdonald himself referred to as "civil jurisdiction", and became implicated in numerous abuses, including routine corporal punishment of any locals suspected of stealing mission property, leading to death in one instance and the flogging of an entirely innocent individual in another, and the large-scale expropriation of land "partly to forestall Portuguese claims to the sovereignty of the Shire Highlands" (Morris, An Environmental History of Southern Malawi, p. 53). Macdonald and others were recalled by the Foreign Mission Committee in 1881, and he spent the rest of his life as a parish minister. Despite the circumstances of his tenure, considered disreputable even by the standards of the day, his account is considered a "pioneer ethnographic study of the Yao" (ibid.) in a remarkably sympathetic vein.

        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).

        The Horse in Motion.

      Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1882. - Small folio, original pictorial black and gilt-stamped dark green cloth over boards, t.e.g. [iii]?viii, 127 pp., 107 plates, including 9 chromolithographs, 5 heliotypes, and 98 lithographs. First edition of this important work documenting Muybridge's groundbreaking work in motion photography. Leland Stanford, railroad magnate, a governor of California and founder of Stanford University, reputedly made a bet that, for a moment in the course of its galloping stride, all four of a horse's hooves are simultaneously off the ground. Because the moment is too fleeting for the human eye to detect, Stanford hired English-born photographer Eadweard Muybridge, already well known for his photographs of western American landscapes, to prove him right. Although Muybridge's work was apparently interrupted by his determination to track and kill his wife's lover, he eventually devised a system of 24 successively placed cameras whose shutters were linked to trip wires set off by the galloping horse. The resulting sequence of photographs, reproduced here as lithographs, was a "technical and conceptual breakthrough" (Tate Museum) which not only of course won Stanford's bet and opened the doors to new conceptions of animal locomotion, but also set the stage for motion picture cameras and the film industry. Illustrated with black and white plates depicting the horse in motion and chromolithographs of horse anatomy.CONDITION: Very good, discreetly re-backed with original spine laid down, covers slightly worn, head and foot of spine rubbed, corners bumped, contents clean, binding tight; nineteenth century bookplate of Newton Hall, Cambridge on front paste-down. Over all a bright, solid, and attractive copy.SHIPPING: Heavy item. Additional shipping charges may apply. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Fine Motif Samples for Silverware of Aesthetic Period Bird and Flora Designs

      Birmingham, circa 1882-1890. The private working volume of a prolific and most talented Birmingham silversmith, containing over 260 silver engraved rubbings on paper, of designs to be etched onto jewellery, silver tableware, etc., approximately 17 pictorial engravings from a book, 12 pencil drawings, and one illustrated magazine print advertisement for Fattorini and Sons of Bradford in West Yorkshire retained for design reference. Each rubbing is made on its own paper clipping, and mounted to 25 leafs of an 1880 annual diary made by White & Pike, a lithography and book making firm in Birmingham. Rubbings vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 2 x 2 cm, and the largest 7 x 11 cm. Rubbings mounted to the first four leafs are made in purple wax, while the majority are made in charcoal. Also containing a few manuscript annotations of specific client purchases, some of whom were jewellers and manufacturers of silverworks, also in Birmingham. Together with 4 photocopy leafs, loosely placed within the volume, outlining the particulars of a patent granted in 1930 to Tiptaft Limited of Birmingham for the production of decorative plaques, possibly suggesting the firm's connection to the volume. Folio. White & Pike's diary, featuring numerous advertisements of contemporary firms in the precious metals trades, and other businesses. Volume measures approximately 21 x 33 cm, green cloth boards titled in gilt to front. A generous example of Victorian silver etching works. During the Aesthetic Period (1880-1901), when beauty and freedom of spirit prevailed over social-political themes, in literature, fine art, music, and other art forms, a sense of fun and insouciance returned to jewellery and table wares. Sterling silver pieces made in Birmingham became quite popular at this time. Engraved motifs such as those presented here were used to decorate vases, tea caddies and sugar bowls, serving platters, candlesticks, bangle bracelets, lockets, brooches, watch fobs, jewellery boxes, fine furniture embellishments, and so much more. A rare survivor from a silversmith's shop in Birmingham, historic Warwickshire, now known as the West Midlands, the present volume has survived in excellent form, and now serves to memorialize Victorian era styles of ornamentation for precious metals, in particular the English attraction to the fabled bird. The volume, a White & Pike's Diary for the year 1880, was first used in 1880 to record the silversmith's sales and services rendered to his Birmingham clients, as manuscript entries are made on specific dates throughout the volume. Clients include private names such as one Mr. Abbott who may have been a manufacturer of musical instruments as he also purchased silver by weight "for snaps, mouthpieces, and plates". Other repeat private clients appearing in the accounts include Walton and Dewson. The silversmith frequently served other professionals and firms from various trades working with metals and jewellery, for example: •Phillips & Pearce - listed in Harrod's Special Directory (1880 First Edition) as dye sinkers, tool makers, stampers and piercers with a shop at 131 Barr Street in Birmingham •Mr. Phillips himself, who purchased silver to stamp into beads •Tool makers Cashmore & Morton who purchased red gold in one instance •Clock and watch makers Grimmett & Finning / Grimmet & Co., and co-owner Mr. Grimmett •Peers & Co. - The 1880 Kelly's Directory of the Watch & Clock Trades lists Peers Edgar & Co. as a manufacturer of best gold-cased chains and jewellery, situated at 264 Icknield Street, in Birmingham •Mr. Sanders who purchased silver to saw-pierce into names •Hickman who brought in 39 earrings and 19 brooches to renew •Clutterbuck who bought 42 blanks to stamp in dies sent Based on the sales entries, some of the items manufactured and sold to retail clients included women's brooches, bracelets, locket dies, and earrings, whereas to other men in the trade and manufacturing of silver artifacts, he sold beads, blank silver pieces for stamping, and silver to turn into coils. The volume was subsequently re-purposed as a private catalog, to retain sample engraved rubbings on paper clippings, which have been pasted over the earlier accounts records. Owing to the private financial notes throughout the volume, this was most likely the silversmith's private working volume, kept in the shop. A more aesthetically pleasing catalog of designs would have surely been presented to his clients. Also intended for personal reference only, a large printed advertisement leaf for Fattorini and Sons of Bradford in West Yorkshire was retained, and annotated in pencil "keep this" - evidently for design reference. Interestingly, the advertisement illustrates designs for cigarette case, one of which is similar to a rubbing found on the previous leaf with the same shaped shield at its center. Oblongs, cameos and roundels, the silver plate etched motifs are rather intricate and refined, the work of a skilled and passionate silversmith. Many of the designs feature birds, a scant few of these having a Far East influence with delicate fans incorporated in the composition, and some resonating with the local appreciation for the birds of England. Flora and leaf patterns are also abundant, and combinations of birds in gorgeous botanical flourishes. [Bird motifs were especially popular in the 1890s and into the turn of the century. Victorians were deeply inspired by nature, and they especially loved birds, which represented hope, freedom, and rebirth. Swallows were typically the first bird to land on a ship when nearing land, and thus came to represent a safe return.] A few designs standout as rather unique and must have been special orders, including one which highlights the Albert memorial clock erected in Belfast in 1869, a round cut scene hand drawn of horse drawn closed carriage complete with a bugler, and a small roundel of a sail boat. One of the cigarette case designs features sand dollars, also fitting for a period during which seaweed collecting and seaside retreats were popular. The 17 copper engraved leafs also suggest that the silversmith produced copper engraved plates for book printers, or at least made the engraved plates for one book which illustrated several birds. Finally, one loose leaf placed in the volume carries rubbings of monogram initials. This may be the working volume of James Walter Tiptaft who founded "J.W. Tiptaft & Son" in 1882. Tiptaft of Birmingham operated from 1882 until 1940, the founder and his son being advertised as ironmongers, jewellers and medallists, over the years. On 14 January 1880, the first manuscript entry was made in the present volume. James Walter Tiptaft was by this time already active in Birmingham. In 1881 he was known to have 2 employees working for him, and may very well have begun compiling this volume for easy reference. James Walter Tiptaft was born in January 1848 in Welford, Northamptonshire, and died sometime after 1900. According to the census of Birmingham, by 1871 he was employed as an "ironmonger's assistant" and residing with his brother Edward at No. 6 Louisa Street. He married Elizabeth Smith in July 1872 in Dudley, Worcester. By 1878, and possibly earlier, the couple had moved to Birmingham. At 33 years old James W. Tiptaft appears in the 1881 census of Birmingham, Warwickshire, his trade being "ironmonger employing 2 men," residing at 12 Spring Hill with his wife Elizabeth, together with his parents William Kea Tiptaft and Ann James (née Atkin) Tiptaft (1821-1892), and also his brother Robert Tiptaft. In 1882, he founded "J.W. Tiptaft & Son." The 1901 census of Birmingham shows James W. Tiptaft living at 129 City Road, with his wife Elizabeth, son William, and nephew Percy N. Burton who is described as 20 years old, ironmonger, worker, born at Birmingham. James Walter Tiptaft's father was William Keal Tiptaft (1824-1893), born in Houghton, Leicestershire, and died in Birmingham, Warwickshire. He was a classical and commercial teacher, later a schoolmaster until at least age 47. In an uncommon turn of events, it seems that in his later working years, he joined his son James in ironmongery. Having moved from Leicestershire, the 1881 census of Birmingham lists him as an "ironmonger's assistant." James and Elizabeth had at least one child, William J. Tiptaft who was born circa 1884 in Birmingham. At age 17, he was also a ironmonger, having learned the trade from his father. He too married a woman named Elizabeth. They had a son they named William. Online sources state that James Walter Tiptaft went into partnership with his son Norman in 1909, however contemporary directories, trade mark registries, and genealogies available online only produce the record of one son, William Tiptaft. Further research is warranted. The mark registered with the Birmingham Assay Office in 1886, 1892, 1906, 1923, and in 1934, for J.W. Tiptaft himself was "J·W·T" whereas in October 1914 for J.W. Tiptaft & Son Ltd. the mark registered was simply "JWT" with no dots or periods. James Walter Tiptaft also entered his mark with the Chester Assay Office from the address of 25 Northampton Street, Birmingham, on the 30th April 1904. His private address at the time of the Chester registration was 22 Whately Road, Handsworth, Staffs. In 1940, Tiptaft Limited was still listed in Kelly's Directory, and also the London Post Office Directory, as a medallist ("Medals and badges in gold, silver and bronze for sports, societies and clubs; Contractors to H.M. Government"), the London address being 22 Hatton Garden. Later the same year the firm was sold to and incorporated with S. Blanckensee and Son Ltd.. S Blanckensee & Sons Ltd. was founded in Bristol in 1826. In September 1863 the firm moved to Birmingham where it established its first registered mark, and established a shop on Great Charles Street. Solomon (Abraham) and his son Aaron, traded as Blanckensee & Son, Jewellers. In the 1931 Kelly's Trade Directory the firm is listed as makers of regimental, naval, and R.A.F. badges, crests and brooches, In 1941, as medalists.

Two stanzas from the immensely popular popular song, in its day, about a young girl during the Protectorate who saves the life of her Cavalier lover from a sentence of death" She has reached the topmost ladder, o'er her hangs the great dark bell; Awful is the gloom beneath her, like the pathway down to hell. See! the ponderous tongue is swinging; 'tis the hour of curfew now, And the sight has chilled her bosom, stopped her breath, and paled her brow. Shall she let it ring? No, never! Her eyes flash with sudden light, As she springs, and grasps it firmly: "Curfew shall not ring to-night!" Out she swung,-- far out. The city Seemed a speck of light below,-- There twixt heaven and earth suspended, As the bell swung to and fro. And the sexton at the bell-rope, old and deaf, heard not the bell, Sadly thought that twilight curfew rang young Basil's funeral knell. "Still the maiden, clinging firmly, quivering lip and fair face white, Stilled her frightened heart's wild throbbing: "Curfew shall not ring tonight!"

        A fine photogravure portrait of Florence Eleanor Booth (1861-1957), wife of Bramwell Booth, Second General of The Salvation Army

      The high-quality sepia-toned photogravure is printed on stiff card (external dimensions 217 x 255 mm, image size 139 x 190 mm). The wide margin beneath the image is inscribed and signed in ink: 'Yours, affectionately Florence E. Booth. The grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Gal[atians] VI 18'. Apart from light creases to two corner tips, the item is in fine condition. Florence Eleanor Soper became a Salvation Army convert in her late teens; in October 1882, 'shortly after her twenty-first birthday, Captain Florence Soper married Chief of the Staff Commissioner Bramwell Booth' (official Salvation Army website). They were married for forty-seven years and had seven children. Shortly before her first child turned one, Florence became involved in the Women's Social Work aspect of The Salvation Army, 'and by the time she relinquished leadership of the WSW in 1912, this spare time ministry of a single rescue home had expanded to more than forty social work centres, of varying types, spread across' England. On the death of his father, Salvation Army founder and General William Booth, in August 1912, Bramwell Booth succeeded him as the Second General, and 'as Mrs General Booth, Florence had to move on to other duties'. This charming portrait appears to date from about this time.

        Sommertag, nach Arnold Böcklin.

      - Radierung und Aquatinta, 1882. 19:14,2 cm, Blattgröße 31,7:22,8 cm. Singer 326. – Brillanter Abdruck vor der Schrift, auf China. Im breiten Rand mit einigen wenigen Fleckchen, leicht knitterfaltig. Der Maler, Bildhauer und Radierer Max Klinger wird am 18.2.1857 in Leipzig geboren. Er studiert in bei Karl Gussow in Karlsruhe und an der Berliner Akademie. 1879 ist er im Atelier von Emile Wauters in Brüssel tätig. Ab 1888 reist Max Klinger wiederholt nach Italien. 1892 ist er Mitbegründer der Berliner Künstlergruppe "XI". Ab 1893 lebt er in Leipzig. 1894 wird er Mitglied der Berliner Akademie, ab 1897 ist er als Professor an der Leipziger Akademie der Grafischen Künste tätig. Ab 1903 hat er auch einen Wohnsitz in Großjena. Beim neu gegründeten Deutschen Künstlerbund ist Max Klinger Vizepräsident neben Max Liebermann, Fritz von Uhde und Harry Graf Kessler. 1906 wird er Vorsitzender des neuen Villa-Romana-Vereins für das Atelierhaus in Florenz. Ein Grundcharakteristikum der Kunst von Max Klinger ist der Symbolismus mit antik-mythologischen und christlichen Bezügen und Inhalten. Zu seinen malerischen Hauptwerken zählen "Kreuzigung" (1890), "Christus im Olymp" (1897), "Die griechische Geisteswelt" (1909 für Leipzig als Aulagemälde der Universität, zerstört). In seinem bildhauerischen Werk orientiert sich Klinger an der neu entdeckten griechischen Polychromie und er verwendet farbige Steine, so bei "Die neue Salome" (1893) und "Kassandra" (1886-1895). Als sein Hauptwerk gilt hier die monumentale Statue des sitzenden "Beethoven" (1886-1902, Leipzig, Neues Gewandhaus). Den bedeutsamsten Teil des künstlerischen Werks von Max Klinger stellt sein grafisches Werk dar. Es zählt zu den besten Leistungen der deutschen Grafik der Neuzeit, sowohl was das Technische, Künstlerische und Narrative angeht. Max Klinger setzt die Technik der Radierung und der Aquatinta in jeder Hinsicht meisterhaft ein und entwickelt sie weiter. Es entsteht ein umfangreiches Werk von Radierfolgen. Max Klinger stirbt am 4.7.1920 in Großjena bei Naumburg.

        Essai sur L'histoire Naturelle des Vertebres de la Province et des Departements Circonvoisins: Vertebres Anallantantoidiens (Poissons et Batraciens)

      Marseillie: Marius Lebon, . First edition. 1882 - Pp. (7), 8-425 (3, index); 44 text-figures (line-drawings and halftones of fishes and frogs). Publisher's original reddish cloth over marbled boards, the spine is lettered in gilt and with blind-stamped panel lines, original marbled endpapers, sm 4to (10 x 6.5 inches; 255 x 170 mm). This work provides a natural history of the fishes and amphibians inhabiting the southern provinces of France. Jean Marius Francois Reguis (1850-1908) studied pharmacy at the School of Medicine in Marseille where he studied under Charles Lespes, Antoine-Fortune Marion, Alphonse Derbs, and Edouard Marie Heckel. After finishing his education, he moved to Meyrargues in southwest France to begin his studies on the batrachians, reptiles, birds, mammals, anthropology, invertebrates, botany, and geology of the area. He later joined the Faculty of Sciences at Marseille when he began writing a 16 volume encyclopedia on the natural history of southern France. Between 1876 and 1904 he published numerous monographs and journal articles on these topics, but they were never formally organized into his encyclopedia. This book appears to be one of the volumes in Regius' proposed encyclopedia. This volume has long tables of the species Regius described in the volume. Due to the extreme scarcity of the work, this volume was likely published in an edition of 500 copies or less. All of his published works are very hard to find. Regius died in 1908 after a lifetime of studying zoology, mycology, and botany of southern France. This volume is warmly inscribed by the author to F. Letarte of Paris, dated July 30, 1882. Later from the library of ichthyologist J. Bohlke with his small name stamp at the bottom of the title page and the dedication page. A rare regional work that seldom comes up for sale. The spine is sunned which has caused the leather to turn into golden tan, the title is fully readable on the spine, the text is clean and unused with some pages uncut and unopened; a tight and clean copy in very good condition.

        Before & After Marriage in Five Acts. Drawn by Cassius M. Coolidge. Copyright by Geo. M. Hayes.

      New York. Published by Barnum & Co. 1882. Single chromolithograph sheet of postcard stock folded into 6 panels, printed recto only. Folded 182 x 77mm, extended 182 x 462mm. An early satirical piece by the famous caricaturist and artist best known for his poker-playing dogs. In 1877 Cassius Coolidge published a short series of sketches entitled The Tale of Wedded Life In Ten Scenes that depict stages of relationships. It was available for one dollar, including shipping. Apparently after his self published work, Coolidge was commissioned to create a custom version of his scenes for Jaques, Atwood & Co. in Chicago. The story was cut from ten scenes to five, each placed on 3?x5? paper cards.

        Africana; Or, the Heart of Heathen Africa. Native Customs and Beliefs. [Volume 2: Mission Life.]

      London: Simpkin Marshall & Co., 1882 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original diagonal-ribbed dark yellow cloth over bevelled boards, spines and front boards lettered and decorated in gilt and black, rear boards ruled in blind, brown floral endpapers, binder's ticket (Jackson's Works, Aberdeen) to rear pastedowns. Housed in a custom blue cloth slipcase. Spines a touch sunned and bumped, tips lightly rubbed, small section of darkening to cloth at upper outer corner of vol. 1 front board, a small portion of cockling below, faint scuffing and a light score-mark to vol. 2 rear board, a few other trivial marks, these flaws minor: an excellent, fresh copy. Wood-engraved frontispiece, 8 similar plates, illustrations to the text. First edition of this important account of Malawi, from the celebrated travel collection of Franklin Brooke-Hitching, with his pencilled initials to the half-titles. Macdonald (1850-1929) arrived in the Shire Highlands in July 1878 as the first ordained minister of the newly-established Church of Scotland mission at Blantyre. During his tenure the mission assumed control of what Macdonald himself referred to as "civil jurisdiction", and became implicated in numerous abuses, including routine corporal punishment of any locals suspected of stealing mission property, leading to death in one instance and the flogging of an entirely innocent individual in another, and the large-scale expropriation of land "partly to forestall Portuguese claims to the sovereignty of the Shire Highlands" (Morris, An Environmental History of Southern Malawi, p. 53). Macdonald and others were recalled by the Foreign Mission Committee in 1881, and he spent the rest of his life as a parish minister. Despite the circumstances of his tenure, considered disreputable even by the standards of the day, his account is considered a "pioneer ethnographic study of the Yao" (ibid.) in a remarkably sympathetic vein.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1882 - 1882 Original Paperback Wisden, Tape to Spine

      1882. Hi, I recently purchased a set of Wisdens and the first 50 of the run were in a suitcase that had not been opened for over 50 years. This lot is an 1882 Original Paperback Wisden. It has tape to the spine. It is in Very Good Condition for the year. The tape is neatly done and holds the book together well, the covers have some marks and age toning , mainly to the bottom of the rear cover. Internally it is very nice and clean and hasn't been opened for a while. No restoration other than the tape applied many years ago. A hard year to find.
