        Bongo tribe, Sudan.

      c. 1882 - Three albumen prints. Fair tonal range and in good condition, pasted on original card, captions in manuscript. Dimensions: 155 by 110mm. (6.5 by 4.5 inches). A series of three photographs taken in the same location in Khartoum by Louis Vossion (1877-1955), a French diplomat who undertook postings to Sudan, Pacific, India. His interest in photography is suggested to be both personal, and professional in its reflection of diplomatic duties in remote areas. One of the photographs shows a girl from the Bongo ethnic group, one of the smaller groups of the White Nile region, with a long tradition in cattle-rearing and pasturage. The 19th century arrival of the Ottomans, Arabs, and subsequently the British, had a major impact on relations between the Nilotic groups. Whilst certain groups accommodated foreign rulers, others rebelled; causing inter-group aggression and hostility. The girl photographed is part of an ancient dance troupe, which had performed after the main meal with important members of the tribe. She is pictured wearing frayed leather garments and an amulet hung on a long, leather cord around her neck. On another photograph Vossion captured Fadl-el- Kerim, an Arab woman, and Aicha, a woman from the mountains of Djebel. They are part of the Nouba ethnic group, consisting of different peoples inhabiting the south of Sudan's Kordofan province. The group has African origins and settled in the region over thousands of years. They were fairly isolated until the nineteenth century, when Sudan came under Egyptian occupation. The violent rule of Mahdi and his successor, and British colonial rule also significantly shaped Nouba history. Today, Nouba is represented by over fifty tribes, approximating 2.5 million people. The third photograph features a group of five woman of varied ethnicity, who were slaves belonging to Ibrahim Effendi Khalil, leader of the Copte colony of Khartoum. Khartoum expanded, becoming the Sudanese capital in 1834, as a result of the prospering slave trade between 1825 and 1880. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Large Signed Photograph of President Chester A. Arthur

      1882 - Signed Photo, as President, [1882], sepia, approximately 16 x 21 in., mounted on a larger-size board approximately 10 1/2 x 24 1/4 in., matted and framed. Boldly signed and inscribed below the image, "To John Jameson, with sincere regard, / Chester A. Arthur." The 3/4-length portrait shows the President standing in a heavy overcoat next to a table on which his top hat rests. The inscription is probably to John Jameson, an Amherst, Massachusetts lawyer, who was appointed postmaster in December 1876. This generally well-known image was taken in 1882 by Charles Milton Bell during Arthur's first full year in office. Bell was the youngest member of a family of photographers who operated a studio in Washington, D.C.In very good to fine condition, with light overall foxing, a bit of fading to the image, and some scattered toning to lower border. There is also a small abrasion with retouching on photo at bottom center, and some scattered, unobtrusive scratches. Nothing detracting from the bold signature and otherwise handsome appearance.Arthur signed photographs are uncommon, and virtually unobtainable in this unusual size. It is one of the largest photographic portraits of any 19th-century American President.

"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.

      New York: Scribner's, 1882. Image size 14 x 10 inches; matted and framed to 21 x 16 3/4 inches overall. An original illustration to Thackeray's The Chronicle of the Drum (1882), page 58, "Ho! fetch me a beaker of wine / And, comrades, I'll give you a toast.". On paper mounted on canvas; two almost imperceptible nicks toward the bottom of the image, else fine . A splendid, vigorous painting, in varying tones of gray, black and white, on brown paper. It shows a group of six white-haired, uniformed, French veterans around a table in a tavern court yard, raising their tankards, and cursing those who brought them defeat at Waterloo. In the book, this early Frost illustration is reproduced by wood-engraving, which cannot compare with the spirit and panache of the original. A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF FROST'S WORK IN GOUACHE

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

      Imprenta de J R Barbedillo, Mexico City 1882 - 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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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 novel centers around the Marquis of Kingsbury and his second wife who labors to see that the children from the Marquis's first marriage do not marry, so that her own will inherit his title and wealth. Then, of course, onto the scene then comes Marion Fay, a girl from the town who falls in love with the Marquis's son. An about Very Good copy of a Trollope triple decker that often turns up rebound.
