        A Soldier's Life and Work in South Africa. 1872–1879

      London, Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, , 1882. A Memoir of the Late Colonel A.W. Durnford. Edited by his Brother, Lieut.-Colonel E[dward] Durnford, Part Author of the "History of the Zulu War and its Origin". Octavo. Original red decorative cloth, rebacked in red cloth with a tan morocco label. Mounted "Woodburytype" photograph portrait frontispiece and folding coloured map. Light browning, a couple of pages reinforced at the fore-edge, a few neat annotations to the text, map with one or two short splits at the folds, one old paper tape repair verso, but overall very good, the cloth a little rubbed and spotted. First Edition. Uncommon account of Durnford's service in South Africa, an apologia edited by his brother: "The court of inquiry into the loss of the camp duly attributed most of the blame for the defeat to Durnford's rash conduct. This was hardly surprising since Chelmsford's staff were determined to make Durnford the scapegoat for the disaster. His brother Lieutenant-Colonel Edward Durnford and Frances Colenso endeavoured through their writings and public lobbying to rehabilitate his reputation. They did not wholly succeed. Durnford's heroic death did much to blunt public criticism of him, but there can be little doubt that his actions contributed materially to the disaster at Isandlwana. As Sir Theophilus Shepstone wrote of him, Durnford was 'as plucky as a lion but as imprudent as a child'" (ODNB).

        Conspectus Psittacorum. Systematische Uebersicht aller bekannten Papageienarten.

      Berlin: Selbstverglag des Verfassers, 1882. - 8vo., (9 ¼ x 5 7/8). Folding table. Contemporary half green morocco, marbled paper boards, original green printed paper wrappers bound in (worn with loss to head of the spine and corners), the spine in five compartments with four raised bands, decorated with gilt tooling in four, and with gilt lettering in one. Provenance: Presentation copy from the author to Dr. Émil August Göldi (1859-1917); with Göldi's bookplate to front pastedown and his ownership stamps to recto of front free endpaper and title page. PRESENTATION COPY FROM AUTHOR REICHENOW, GERMAN ORNITHOLOGIST, TO GÖLDI, SWISS-BRAZILIAN ZOOLOGIST AND EPIDEMIOLOGIST First edition. Anton Reichenow, a German ornithologist and herpetologist, was a particular expert on parrots, and this book is, as both the Latin and German titles suggest, a systematic survey of all parrot species known at the time of publication. He created a system of classifying birds, in which he designated six groups: "shortwings, swimmers, stiltbirds, skinbills, yoketoes, and treebirds." Although this terminology was not widely adopted by ornithologists, it is used in the standard decimal library cataloguing system. A number of bird species are named after Reichenow, and he is credited with describing one new genus and two new species of frogs, as well as two new species of lizards. He presented this copy of Conspectus Psittacorum to Swiss-Brazilian naturalist and zoologist Émil August Göldi, who described numerous new species of Brazilian birds and mammals, many of which bear his name. In addition to his zoology work, Göldi also made important contributions to the field of epidemiology and public health in Brazil. In particular he studied the transmission of yellow fever and advocated the importance of fighting the mosquito as the primary carrier of the disease, several years before Oswaldo Cruz's public health campaign. A very good copy illustrating the intellectual relationship of two important scientific figures in the late nineteenth century.

        1882 Time Table showing the First Transcontinental US railroad: "Union and Central Pacific Railroad Line. The Great American Over-Land Route", with large color map.

      Rand McNally,, Chicago: 1882 - Pocket time table with large color map showing the western portion of the first transcontinental railroad, from Council Bluffs and Kansas City and extending west to California. This particular time table is from an Australian collection; the route from Australia has been marked in orange pencil on the map, starting with the trip across the Atlantic, arrival in New York, trip up to Boston, then Quebec, Montreal, Toronto, Buffalo, Chicago, Omaha/Council Bluffs, and from there due west on the Pacific Union line to San Francisco.This first transcontinental line, known as the "Overland Route", was built between 1863 and 1869, when the Central Pacific and the Union Pacific connected at Council Bluffs, and linked up with the existing network to the east, thereby providing rail service for the first time from coast to coast. On May 10, 1869, the famous "Last Spike" was driven at Promontory, Utah, establishing a transportation network which supercharged the economy and migration to the American West.The time table boasts a schedule time between New York of only 7 days for first class trains! Through tickets to Europe are offered, and rates to California from New York "are at present about $138.30 first class; $105.00 second-class; $75.00 third class passage". When the map is folded, one side is devoted to time tables, and the other side to general information. Includes text on Montana and Colorado, luring settlers: "Among the promising Territories of the Union none is at present enjoying a more vigorous growth than Montana. . [this] line in now completed to Butte City, the mining centre of the Territory, and reduces the stage distance to principal points to from eight to twenty-four hours". On Colorado: "The Central and Union Pacific is the only line which can carry passengers from California, Nevada or the Coast, through the wonderfully prosperous and picturesque young state of Colorado. . Every mountain range and every gulch is being prospected." The time table with "Form B-6-82" at the bottom of the front panel. 4 1/2 x 8 1/4" folded, folding open 8 times to 16 1/4 x 43 1/2 wide", with attractive large color map showing the rail lines in black, with branch lines extending north into Montana and Oregon, and south in to Colorado and Utah.

The front and back cover panels are both illustrated; one with a map showing an across the world voyage commencing in Europe, crossing the Atlantic and the US to San Francisco, and the Pacific to Japan, Hong Kong, Sidney (sic) and New Zealand. The other cover with a view of the train crossing an elevated bridge & titled "Union Pacific Railway Bridge, Omaha" A few splits at folds, slightly ruffled bottom edges, o/w very good.

        Chirurgie antiseptique et théorie des germes. Oeuvres réunies de J. Lister. Traduction du Dr Gustave Borginon.

      H. Manceaux, Bruxelles 1882 - In-8, xvi, 635 pp., figures dans le texte, 1 planche en couleur, demi-chagrin havane moderne, dos à nerfs, titre doré, couvertures conservées, exemplaire non coupé ; les 200 premiers feuillets sont discrètement brunis ; par ailleurs, très bon exemplaire, très frais. Très rare traduction de diverses publications et conférences de Joseph Lister sur l'antiseptie chirurgicale, placées par ordre chronologique (ce qui permet de suivre le cheminement de la pensée de l'auteur). Cet ouvrage est particulièrement important, d'autant plus que les ¿uvres complètes de Lister ne seront publiées en anglais qu'en 1909 et qu'il serait pratiquement impossible aujourd'hui de réunir les tirages à part de ces 18 textes. Il faut particulièrement signaler les deux premiers textes, ainsi que le quatrième : - Nouveau traitement des fractures ouvertes et des abcès ¿ Observations sur les causes de la suppuration (extrait de The Lancet, 1867) : monument capital dans l'histoire de la chirurgie [.] remarquable par l'exactitude des descriptions et la rigueur du raisonnement basé sur l'expérience (Lecène). Lister, s'inspirant des expériences de Pasteur et d'un rapport sur les effets remarquables de l'acide phénique sur les eaux d'égout, utilise des pansements à base d'acide phénique sur les plaies de fractures compliquées. - Le principe antiseptique dans la pratique chirurgicale (Lancet, 1867) : "Lister annonce dans cette communication capitale [.] qu'il a commencé à appliquer l'antisepsie phéniquée à la chirurgie opératoire." (Lecène). Lister pulvérise sur le champ opératoire des vapeurs d'une solution phéniquée forte. - Ligatures artérielles faites d'après la méthode antiseptique : Lister est le premier à employer et à préconiser du catgut antiseptique. Dans les mémoires suivants, Lister rapporte ses recherches visant à améliorer la méthode antiseptique et les résultats extraordinaires de ses travaux qui vont convaincre peu à peu la communauté scientifique internationale. Le traducteur était médecin à Bruxelles. La traduction a été revue par Lister. Cet ouvrage a également été publié à Paris, chez Delahaye & Lecrosnier, la même année (édition sans doute postérieure). cf. pour les publications originales : Printing and the mind of man, 316 ; One hundred books famous in medicine, 75 ; Garrison & Morton, 1619, 2964, 5616, 5634, 5635 ; Zimmerman & Veith, pp. 459-475 ; A.

        The Temples and Towers of the Virgen [Grand Cañon District Atlas Sheet IV]

      Julius Bien & Co, [New York] 1882 - A fine image from "one of the grandest publications of the scientific explorations in the American West", by arguably one of the greatest American topographical artists who recorded this important era of westward expansion This magnificent image is from the atlas volume of the official government report of the first great geological survey of the Grand Canyon. The team assembled to carry out the survey included some outstanding talents: Clarence E.Dutton, the scientist; Jack Hilliers, the photographer, and William Henry Holmes and Thomas Moran as artist-topographers. Holmes had already taken part in the Hayden survey of 1872-1877, and after serving with the Geological survey from 1880-1884, he turned to Ethnology and Anthropology, becoming chief of the Bureau of American Ethnology in 1902. From 1930 to 1932 he was director of the National Gallery of Art. The intention of the survey of the Grand Canyon 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. As Wallace Stegner wrote in his introduction to the 1977 reprint of the whole work "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". Cf. Francis P.Farquhar. The Books of the Colorado River & the Grand Canyon (Los Angeles: 1953) 73; cf. W.B.Reese & G.A.Miles Depicting America (New Haven: 1992) 40. Tinted lithograph by Julius Bien & Co. (Small tears to original fold and a repaired tear in the left margin).

        The Transept, Kaibab Division, Grand Canon

      - 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.

        General Robert C. Richardson, Jr.'s 4-Star General Flag!

      n.p., n.d. Flag, 51? x 38?. Two sided, gold-fringed flag of red with four white stars embroidered on each side. Fine condition. Gen. Robert C. Richardson, Jr. (1882-1954) commanded the U.S. Army, Pacific (Hawaiian Department) during the height of World War II in 1943 until his retirement in 1946. During that time he was also named Military Governor of Hawaii and Commanding General of U.S. Army Forces in the Pacific Ocean Areas. During his Hawaiian command, Gen. Richardson oversaw the construction in Fort Shafter on Oahu of what is now called Richardson Hall in a remarkably short time of 49 days. Known as the "Pineapple Pentagon" during the war, it has remained the planning and operational support centers for soldiers of the U.S. Army, Pacific, since 1944. In 1944, Richardson went to Saipan to review Army troops and present awards. He did this without first consulting with Gen. Holland Smith, USMC, who had operational control there, and who became angry with Richardson. Ric

NOTES: George Omerod (1785-1883) was a keen antiquarian and at the age of 23 started making a large collection of documents for his planned history of Cheshire. Born in Manchester and educated in Cheshire, in 1811 he purchased an estate near Chorlton,and the first edition of his great work was published in 1819. Although he left papers for a revised edition, access was not allowed to them by his family, so Thomas Helsby had to produce his revised edition independently. This is a VERY HEAVY set.

        Handwritten Unpublished Poem with an original cabinet photograph

      Denver, CO 1882 - American writer best known for his children's poetry and humorous essays. Exceptional unpublished signed poem, titled "My Thirty Second Birthday," 1 page, 8.5 x 4.75 inches, four stanzas. Written on the back of a restaurant check made out to Fields for $3.00 at the Hotel Brunswick in Denver, Colorado, on August 31, 1882. This humorous poem was created on the spot for his friend Corporal Raymond, who accompanied Field to the restaurant in celebration of his 32nd birthday -- and then picked up the check for $3.00, in small part, consisting of the 2nd and 4th verses: "The gallant Corporal Raymond said 'Who dares to send an order here?' Yet by the living and the dead - And by the hairs of this proud head, if it be Field - there's difference there! So Corporal Raymond paid the bill - Three dollars! Blush O muse, to say - Three dollars for the juice of still - And meats he took to make his fill - So fritter man their gold away!" Accompanied by an original cabinet photograph taken on that memorable day by Charles Bohm, depicting Eugene Field, Corporal Raymond, and two unidentified people posed in a studio setting, possibly unique. The poem has three horizontal folds, several small smudges, and a light strip of uneven toning on the right edge. Very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Leipzig 3rd September 1882 - 4pp manuscript letter in German dated Leipzig 3rd September 1882. ENGLISH TRANSLATION. "Leipzig, September 3, 1882 Dear Mr. Tuckett: This morning I received your valuable communication for 'Greece'. I am thanking you for this in the most heartfelt manner, as well as for the proposed additional help in the new project. I give you the assurance that I will take the same care of it as I did with the two volumes Palestine & Syria and Lower Egypt, so that all the support I get in that matter will result in my thanks and goodwill. From the two mentioned volumes you will have realised how much I am aiming at giving this Oriental enterprise a solid and scientific foundation for which I want to raise interest among eminent specialists, in order to gather the best possible material. Besides that, two of my colleagues and me, naturally each on his own, will travel in that country in order to be able to give in the book, if possible, firsthand information about each place gathered on location. When the manuscript has thus been finished I will have it typeset and send proofs to all the gentlemen who helped, asking them to revise the text again and meticulously. Please excuse me for having informed you about the production of these volumes in such detail. I felt the need to give - specially to you - a rough idea about that. I don't know yet whether I will come to Euboea myself; nevertheless, with your permission and referring to you I will try to get interest in the handbook as well from your friend Capt. Mansell in Chalkis. [in English:] Ever yours sincerely Karl Baedeker. Today at lunchtime I received a letter from Sparta written by a colleague who has been travelling since last autumn; I will have a passage from it copied. The accident, survived just by chance, is not without interest." This letter written by Karl Baedeker gives an interesting insight to the workings of the Baedeker company and the detailed attention they devoted to their guide-books. This letter was written a year before the first Baedeker on Greece was published in 1883. The last part of his Oriental enterprise.

      [Bermuda. ca. 1882]. - Sixteen leaves, containing thirty-one mounted photographs, each approximately 7 x 9 inches. Oblong folio. Contemporary black cloth, neatly rebacked and recornered with contemporary black morocco, gilt. Light wear and soiling to cards. Images generally crisp and clean. Very good plus. A handsome 19th-century photo album which includes the work of one of the great photographers of Bermuda. Three of the images have been definitely attributed to N.E. Lusher - the first, showing the construction of a gangway to a docked vessel at St. Georges; the eighth image, showing a shaded crossroads; and the charming ninth image of a black woman and a young boy seated in a donkey cart. The remainder of the album includes a number of images of Bermuda subjects which are of a similarly high quality which suggest that they are all the work of Lusher. Lusher apparently worked as a professional photographer from 1882 onwards, and is known for a wide range of work. His success more or less tied in with the explosion of tourism to the island that followed the first visit of Princess Louise to Bermuda in 1883. The images in the present album offer a good selection of the best of his work. They range from the reportage of the dock scenes, to the topographical images of the lighthouse and other island locations, to the true art of landscape photography, to the whimsy of images which feature the local inhabitants. Eighteen of the photographs have been identified as images of Bermuda, while the remainder show unidentified American coastal towns, possibly Nova Scotia, including an image of a coastal fortification, possibly in Halifax. The Bermuda images include a view of the docks at St. George's; a view of the town of St. George's; a stone quarry; royal palms on the road to Paget; a donkey cart; Gibb's Hill Lighthouse; a field of Easter lilies; and stalactites, possibly in the Crystal Cave.
