        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.

        Two On a Tower. A Romance

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington,, 1882. In Three Volumes. 3 volumes, octavo. Near contemporary blue half morocco for Hatchards, spines gilt in compartments, blue cloth sides, marbled endpapers, ruling to boards and top edges gilt. Bookplate of William Saunders, dated 1904, to each front pastedown, and bookplate of E. Hubert Litchfield to each free endpaper. A few light marks to cloth of volume II, endpapers tanned from turn-ins, spine of each volume cracked between half-title and title, contents toned. A very good set. First edition. Two on a Tower originally ran as a serial in the Atlantic Monthly between May and December 1882, after the editor Thomas Bailey Aldrich had written Hardy in late September 1881, asking about the possibility of a serial. However, Hardy did not begin work on the story until early 1882 and by 14 July the same year, Sampson Low agreed to publish the book form. Overall, Hardy seems to have found writing Two on a Tower a rushed affair: "The truth is that, though the plan of the story was carefully thought out, the actual writing was lamentably hurried — having been produced month by month, and the MS. despatched to America, where it was printed without my seeing the proofs. It would have been rewritten for the book form if I had not played truant and gone off to Paris" (Letter to Edmund Gosse, 21 January 1883).

        Jubal Early Tracking Down a Letter

      Lynchburg, Va. 1882 - Autograph Letter Signed to Edward W. Bok, Lynchburg, Va., April 2, 1882, 2 pp., 4 7/8 x 8 in. Jubal Early, the former Confederate general, informs young Edward Bok that he did not receive the document Bok sent him. He urges Bok to send it again promptly, with adequate postage to insure its successful delivery. TranscriptLynchburg Virginia April 2nd 1882Sir: I am just in receipt of yours of yesterday (The 1st), and in reply I have to inform you that I have not received the document to which you refer, as sent to me on the 15th of last month, or anything whatever from you except the note which came & mail to day.Will you be so good as to inform me of the character of the document sent me, and whether by mail or by express. If sent by mail, and it was a printed document, it is possible that you have omitted to put enough in the ways of postage stamps in the package, and it was not therefore sent, but thrown into a waste basket. I enclose postage stamps for your reply, as from your stamen the matter affects me personally. If the document to which you refer is a printed one, and another copy can be obtained, I will be willing to pay for it on being informed of its character. Answer immediately as I shall leave here on Thursday, the 6th (?) for New Orleans and will possibly be absent two or three weeks. If you get this promptly, and answer at once, your answer can reach me here before I leave. Very Respectfully Your Obdt ServtJ A EarlyEdward W. Bok EsqrHistorical BackgroundThe purpose of the correspondence between Confederate Generals and Edward Bok was to acquire autographs, and valuable Civil War information for "The American Pantheon," a project Bok was clearly excited about, but that never seemed to materialize.Jubal Anderson Early (1816-1894), initially opposed secession, but became of a fervent supporter of the Confederacy. He is credited with several victories, including the First and Second Battle of Bull Run. Infamous for his crude language and habits, Early was famously called "Lee's Bad Old Man". Early never surrendered to the Union, evading capture in his home state of Virginia before fleeing in exile to Mexico and later Canada. President Johnson pardoned Early in 1868, despite the fact that he never took the oath of loyalty to the Union other rebel leaders were compelled to take.Edward William Bok (1863-1930) was a Dutch born American editor and Pulitzer Prize-winning author. He was born in Den Helder, The Netherlands. At the age of six, he immigrated to Brooklyn, New York, USA, and became an office boy with the Western Union Telegraph Company in 1876. In 1882, he began work with Henry Holt and Company, and then, in 1884, he became involved with Charles Scribner's Sons, where he eventually became its advertising manager. From 1884 until 1887, Bok was the editor of The Brooklyn Magazine. His 1920 autobiography, The Americanization of Edward Bok, won the Gold Medal of the Academy of Political and Social Science and the Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography. Edward W. Bok died on January 9, 1930.

First Edition, First Appearance in Print of Koch's epochal paper on which he announced March 24 his discovery of the tubercle bacillus, this paper also contains the first statement of "Koch's postulates". The greatest and best known of all of Robert Koch's labors . For this work, in the face of the teaching of the day that tuberculosis was the result of nutritional disturbances, Koch took his place as the greatest bacteriologist of his day and one of the greatest physicians of all time. By the discovery of the actual cause of tuberculosis, real scientific progress was possible toward controlling this widespread affliction. For his discovery of the bacillus of tuberculosis Robert Koch received the Nobel Prize in 1905. " Medical Classic II, No.8, pp.719 - - Robert Koch (1843-1910) studierte zuerst in Göttingen Mathematik und Naturwissenschaften, ging aber schon nach zwei Semestern zum medizinischen Studium über, in dem namentlich der Anatom HENLE, der Physiologe MEISSNER und der Kliniker HASSE besonderen Einfluß auf ihn übten. 1865 - noch als Student - Assistent am Pathologischen Museum, wurde er 1866 promoviert und ging dann für ein Halbjahr nach Berlin. In demselben Jahr erhielt er eine Stelle an der Idiotenanstalt Langenhagen bei Hannover, ließ sich aber 1868 als Arzt in den märkischen Städtchen Niemegk, 1869 in Rakwitz (Posen) nieder. Er nahm am Deutsch-Französischen Feldzug teil und bereitete sich, nach Hause zurückgekehrt, für das Physikatsexamen vor. Nach der bestandenen Prüfung wurde er zum Kreisphysikus des Kreises Bomst in Wollstein ernannt, wo er neben Privat- und Amtspraxis unter primitivsten Verhältnissen jene Untersuchungen begann, die ihn zu unsterblichen Ruhm führen sollten. Hier konnte er nicht nur die bereits von POLLENDER, BRAUELL und DAVAINE im Blute Milzbrandkranker entdeckten Stäbchen feststellen, sondern auch ihre Dauerform beobachten und damit die Aetiologie des Milzbrandes in ihren Grundlagen mit Sicherheit feststellen. Nachdem er wenige Monate eine Stelle als Medizinalbeamter bekleidet hatte, aber wieder nach Wollstein zurückgekehrt war, wurde er 1880 als Regierungsrat und ordentliches Mitglied des Kais. Gesundheitsamtes nach Berlin berufen. 1891 übernahm er unter Aufgabe seiner akademischen Tätigkeit die Leitung des für ihn gegründeten Instituts für Infektionskrankheiten.-cf.Fischer, p.784f. - 1881 "begann Koch seine grundlegenden Arbeiten über die Tuberkulose, die in der Entdeckung des lang gesuchten Tuberkuloseerregers ihre Krönung fanden. Hierüber berichtete er in der denkwürdigen Sitzung der Berliner physiologischen Gesellschaft am 24.März 1882 (.) Zunächst schilderte Koch den mikroskopischen Nachweis des Tuberkelbazillus als charakteristisches, kleines, unbewegliches Stäbchen, das sich im tuberkulösen Material konstant finden läßt, allerdings nur durch bestimmte Färbeverfahren.(.) - Es folgt die Schilderung der Reinkultur, die Erfüllung der zweiten Forderung des Erregernachweises(.). - Mit der Klärung der dritten Frage, "ob die isolierten Bazillen, wenn sie dem Thierkörper wieder einverleibt werden, den Krankheitsprozeß der Tuberkulose auch wieder zu erzeugen vermögen", konnte Koch das letzte Glied in der Beweiskette einfügen und zusammenfassend sagen: " Alle diese Versuche zusammengenommen berechtigen zu dem Ausspruch, daß die in den tuberkulösen Substanzen vorkommenden Bazillen nicht nur Begleiter des tuberkulösen Prozesses, sondern auch die Ursache desselben sind, und daß wir in den Bazillen das eigentlich tuberkulöse Virus vor uns haben". - Nach dem Vortrag war, wie Loeffler berichtet, "nicht ein einziger im Saal, der nicht, wenn auch wider Willen, von der Richtigkeit dessen, was er gehört und gesehen, überzeugt gewesen wäre und gefühlt hatte, daß er einer epochemachenden, die ganze Medizin erschütternden Verkündigung von ungeheuren Konsequenzen beigewohnt hätte, .

      1882 - London: Wm. Isbister, 1882. Original sage green cloth decorated in black. First Edition of this collection of five short stories, published in December 1881. In addition to the title story, they are "The Lady of Launay," "Christmas at Thompson Hall," "The Telegraph Girl" and "Alice Dugdale." Curiously, there is also a two-volume Isbister edition of this book (though with continuous pagination), yet this single volume edition is earlier. Since Trollope had wanted the book to be published in one volume only, but then died a year later, Sadleir hypothesizes that Isbister grabbed the opportunity of issuing left-over copies of the book at a two-volume price now that its author could no longer complain.~This copy is in sage green cloth, which is the color most often (though not frequently!) encountered; copies were also bound in blue and in scarlet, without priority. This is a very good-plus copy -- minor wear at the lower extremities, and a trace of soil on the front cover. Sadleir places FRAU FROHMANN in the upper half of Trollope's books in terms of scarcity, and in fact this is only the third copy (and first green one) that we have handled. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 61.

        Handwritten Unpublished Poem with an original cabinet photograph

      Denver, CO, 1882. unbound. 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. American writer best known for his children's poetry and humorous essays.

        Rhopalocera Malayana: a description of the Butterflies of the Malay Peninsula.

      London, the author, (&) Penang, D. Logan, 1882-1886. 4to (310 x 245mm). pp. xvi, (4), 481, (1, errata), (6, description of plates), with 46 chromo-lithographic plates. Contemporary red half morocco, richly gilt decorated spine in 6 compartments. A splendidly produced work on the butterflies of the Malay Peninsula. The beautiful chromo-lithographed plates are by Horace Knight. Alfred Russel Wallace comments about the first part in the 4 May 1882 issue of 'Nature' as follows: 'We have received the first part of this handsome work, in which it is proposed to describe and figure all the species of butterflies which inhabit the Malay Peninsula and the islands of Penang and Singapore. Forty-four coloured figures of butterflies are given in this part, occupying four plates of large quarto size: and they are most admirably executed in chromo-lithography. Some of the figures, indeed, are hardly to be distinguished from good hand-colouring. The descriptions are full and careful, and much judgment is shown in using, as far as possible, old and well-established names, and in rejecting needless sub-divisions of the genera. It is expected that the work will be completed in six or seven parts, forming a handsome quarto volume; and we trust that the author may obtain numerous subscribers in our wealthy colonies of Singapore and Penang, as well as at home, to encourage him to complete the work in the same full and careful manner as he has commenced it'./William Lucas Distant's (1845-1922) passion for natural history began to develop during a whaling voyage with his father in 1867. He paid 2 lengthy visits to Transvaal publishing in 1900-11 his 'Insecta Travaaliensis'. He was employed by the Trustees of the Natural History Museum at S. Kensington to rearrange their extensive collections of Rhynchota. A mint copy of this rare book.//Nissen ZBI, 1114.

        A Treatise on the Law of Stock-Brokers and Stock-Exchanges

      New York: Harper and Brothers. 1882. First. First edition. Full morocco gilt, all edges gilt, possibly a presentation binding or issue. Corners well-rubbed, still a nice and presentable, very good copy. Inscribed by the author: "To Francis N. Bangs, Esq. with sincere regards of John R. Dos Passos. May 22 '82" and with the neat ownership signature of Bangs. Dos Passos was a powerful industrialist and lawyer, and the father of author John Dos Passos, who was conceived out of wedlock in 1896 (he later married his baby-momma in 1910). Bangs was a very prominent attorney specializing in business matters, a founding member of the New York City Bar Association, and its president from 1882 to 1883. His son was the author and satirist John Kendrick Bangs. An interesting association. .

        The Stolen White Elephant

      James R Osgood & Co, Boston 1882 - 306+[12 ad] pages Duodecimo (6 3/4" x 5") bound in decorative brown and cream cloth with gilt blind stamped "Mark Twain" to cover and head of an elephant and brown lettering to spine and cover. (BAL 3404) First edition. The title-story of this collection of 18 stories (including all of those previously printed in Punch, Brothers, Punch!) is a wonderful burlesque about a sacred white elephant that is stolen while being transported from Siam, via New Jersey, to Queen Victoria, as a diplomatic gesture of goodwill after the settlement of the dispute. It is an early detective story itself, although the dozens of detectives involved in the search are hopelessly inept. The book is recorded only in one binding, and there was but one printing. BAL describes the cloth as "tan," but it is really a cream pictorial cloth stamped in brown and gilt. Most copies are indeed tan, having aged with time. When Osgood's business failed a few years after publication his stock was taken over by Charles L Webster, who issued copies of the original sheets with his own cancel title-page. This is not recorded by Johnson or BAL, but the only copy seen was in green cloth with Webster's imprint at foot. ( Firsts Volume 8, numbers 7/8 page 45-46) Condition: Some foxing to covers, as usual, spine ends lightly rubbed, previous owner's gift inscription to front end paper else a very good copy.

      [No place - St. Louis?]: A. Gast & Co.. 1882. First. Broadsheet. Measuring 10.75" x 14". Slight irregular folds, tiny splits, a small and light stain, still about near fine. One side is text in various interesting typefaces to promote the newly founded city, the verso displays a map of Larimore and a caricature of a black schoolmaster pointing to the city, while a half dozen young black boys carry on happily and mischievously. An unusual western promotional broadsheet with blunt black caricatures. The map is displayed as a wall map in a school, the schoolmaster holds a book that reads "Look here, look there, look way over yonder at the rising young city of Larimore." The books that the children are brandishing also contain praise for Larimore. OCLC locates a single copy, at the Denver Public Library; not in American Memory. .
