        Two on a Tower. A Romance. In Three Volumes.

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1882 - 3 volumes, octavo. Original dark green cloth, titles to spines gilt, triple-frames and publisher's monogram device to boards in blind, pale yellow endpapers, top edge untrimmed. Spines gently cocked, bindings lightly rubbed and bumped, occasional marks to margins. An excellent set. First edition. Two on a Tower originally ran as a serial in both America and the UK in the Boston-based Atlantic Monthly between May and December 1882. 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). In book form, the novel was published in late October 1882, in an edition of 1,000 copies. With the ink stamps of Dartington Hall, located in Totnes, Devon, part of Hardy's fictionalized Wessex. Purdy, pp. 41-44. [Attributes: First Edition]

        TWO ON A TOWER. A ROMANCE

      Sampson, Low, Marston et. al, London 1882 - Three volumes bound in early blue 3/4 morocco by Riviere with gilt lettering and design on the spines and five raised bands. All half-titles present, and the original green cloth spines are bound in at the rear of each corresponding volume. The first volume has been SIGNED by Hardy above the title. A novel relating the love affair between Lady Viviette Constantine and Swithin St. Cleeve who meet at the astronomical observatory that St. Cleeve has set up atop an abandoned monument tower on Lady Constantine's estate. Hardy made considerable revisions in the text of all three volumes, beginning with the second edition of 1883, and added new prefaces, as the various later collected editions of Hardy's works appeared. In his Preface to the 1895 Wessex Edition, Hardy wrote that his novel was "the outcome of a wish to set the emotional history of two infinitesimal lives against the stupendous background of the stellar universe, and to impart to readers the sentiment that of these contrasting magnitudes the smaller might be the greater to them as men." These original texts, as they were published in book form, are now generally considered the most sought after and the current Penguin series of Hardy's novels uses this text, even reproducing the title page of volume I. Sadleir ranks this as Hardy's "seventh scarcest book" and all original editions of Hardy's novels that have been SIGNED by him are exceptionally uncommon. Front joint of first volume cracking with a small nick at the head of the spine. Text clean, bindings bright and firm with minor rubbing [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter Signed "Archie Colquh[oun]" to Mrs MacGregor and Discussing Work on his Book "Across Chryse: Being the Narrative of a Journey of Exploration through the South China Border Lands, from Canton to Mandalay" (London, 1883)].

      Edinburgh 1882 - Edinburgh: 11, St. Bernard Court, 19 November 1882. Octavo, ca. 18x11,5 cm (7 x 4 ½ in). Two pages; ink on laid paper, written in a legible hand. The text of the letter is clear, despite parts of three words on verso having been trimmed away in detaching the leaf from the second leaf of what was previously a bifolium. These include the last three letters of Colquhoun's signature. Letter with folds but overall in a very good condition. In his letter Archibald Ross Colquhoun, an explorer, colonial administrator and author, talks about his work on a prospective book, dedicated to his travels in China and Burma in 1881-1882: the "narrative is to be 2 vols: and to be entitled | ACROSS CHRYSÊ | being the narrative of an exploration Through the South China Borderlands from Canton to Mandalay." In a short footnote he describes the derivation of "Chrysê" and afterwards asks Mrs MacGregor to "tell all yr. Friends to make certain of securing tickets for a certain lecture by a certain distinguished Ind China traveller!" Seeing Mr MacGregor "amongst the audience at the c/commerce [i.e. Chamber of Commerce] on Wedy." brought back to him "days wh. Seem very far off now and indeed hardly part of my own life!" Colquhoun's book was published shortly afterwards under the same title by Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington (London, 1880). Colquhoun "joined the Indian Public Works Department in 1871 as an assistant surveyor. In 1879 he was secretary and second in command of a government mission to Siam and the Shan States, and in 1881-2 he travelled from Canton (Guangzhou) to Bhamo to find the best railway route between China and Burma. Widely regarded as an explorer of the first rank, his Indian administrative obligations prevented him from accepting an offer from Henry Morton Stanley to act as second in command of his Congo expedition He was in reality an accomplished writer of more than fourteen scholarly books and numerous articles on colonial administration, comparative ethnography, railway and canal construction, land settlement, trade prospects, and geopolitics and defence in the European colonial empires, Russia, China, east Asia, and the Americas. He was a regular contributor on these subjects to British, North American, and German journals and newspapers. He was one of the most widely respected travel authors of his time and he built up a series of influential friendships, counting sometime American presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Taft, and the Canadian imperialist Sir George Parkin, among his friends" (Oxford DNB).

        On Guard," being Extracts from the Journal of an Indian Subaltern. [together with;] Reminiscences of the Zulu War; or the Worth of the Army Scripture Reader by a "Staff Sergeant."

      London: Jas. Nisbet & Co., 1882 - Duodecimo. Original red cloth, title gilt to the upper board, blind panels to both boards, royal blue surface-paper endpapers. Very slightly damp-mottled on the boards, light toning, but a very good copy. First editions of both of these titles, here bound together, are uncommon, COPAC shows just three of the former and four of the latter title, OCLC adds no further copies. Nisbet was published largely for the evangelical and juvenile markets, and this little volume is no exception, combining elements of both. The first relates the conversion of Private Musgrave in India, while in the second, "The prefatory note, signed by H.J. Everard [actually W.J. Evered] Poole, contains a tract written by Mrs. Everard Poole entitled "What a Penny Once Did," and relates an incident regarding a soldier leaving for Zululand. The second part is contributed by Staff Sergeant Beatson" (Mendelssohn). Raugh incorrectly identifies Beatson as Finlay C. Beatson, who served with the 62nd Regiment at around the right dates, joining in 1873, becoming the adjutant in 1878, and later being second-in-command in the Second Boer War; the Staff Sergeant served with the 99th, and was very definitely ORs. An excellent copy. Mendelssohn, I, p.100; Raugh, Anglo-Zulu War, 2784, for the second-named. [Attributes: First Edition]

      London: James Speirs, , 1882-7. Volume I. The Cerebrum and its Parts; Volume II. The Pituitary Gland, Cerebellum and Medulla Oblongata. Edited, translated, and annotated by R.L. Tafel. 2 volumes, octavo. Original mid-brown cloth, title gilt to spines, portrait bust in roundel gilt to the upper boards, Swedenborg's arms in gilt to the lower boards. Ex-University of London library, with their bookplates to the front pastedowns, and small ink stamps verso of titles and to last leaves, but overall a very good set indeed, the cloth clean and bright, very slight cracking of the hinges of Volume I. First edition, translated directly from the Stockholm Manuscript which had lain untouched in the Archives of the Swedish Academy of Sciences for close to 140 years. Swedenborg "contributed significantly to neurology in his anatomical studies and physiological doctrines… The most remarkable achievement along neurological lines… is his definition of the correct location and regional representation of the motor area in the cerebral cortex" (McHenry). Tafel adds a commentary which places Swedenborg's work in the context of contemporary physiologists. The title page of Volume I describes the work as "in four volumes"; these two volumes were all published.

        COLTON'S NEW MAP OF LONG ISLAND.

      New York: Colton & Co., . 1882 - Folding map, two sheets together measuring 30 x 62 1/4 inches, with full period color. Bound into original tall brown cloth boards, stamped in blind and gilt, rebacked by white paper. Splits on folds neatly repaired. Very good. With a large inset of "Brooklyn, New York, Jersey City, Hoboken, etc." This is probably the largest commercially published map of Long Island to date, which indicates the increasing population and importance of Long Island. Development in the eighteen years since the publication of the 1865 map has been dramatic. Explosive growth can be seen throughout Queens, especially in Jamaica and Garden City. Railroads now crisscross the island, with the Brooklyn & Montauk Railroad extending along its southern coast as far as Sag Harbor. The map was evidently first introduced in 1873. Rumsey (167) lists a 1888 edition. Not in Phillips.

        A Pair of Views of Mechler's Bakery, Weehawken, New Jersey

      1882 - Watercolors on paper, 7 x 11 in. Signed and dated (at lower right): [Broadway]: Fritz Meyer 82; [Park Avenue]: Fritz Meyer / 1882. Inventory#: p570pfra. These precisely painted views of the front and rear of Mechler's Bakery in Weehawken, New Jersey, are the work of Fritz Meyer. They are a record of a period in the history of Hudson County, New Jersey, when the area was home to significant numbers of German-American immigrants. Meyer's rendering of this scene shows Weehawken as a semi-rural town, just in the process of being "modernized." The detail that the artist incorporates into each of these renderings offers a tantalizing "snapshot" of a slice of Weehawken life in the waning days of the nineteenth century. Mechler's building is freestanding, with no neighbors on either side. At the top of both side walls, in large lettering, the premises is announced as Ph. Mechler's Weehawken Bakery. (In the rear facing view Weehawken is misspelled "Weehaken" either by the artist or by the proprieter). Mechler's, however, is definitely more (and perhaps less) than just a bakery. Facing the street, atop the extended front porch, a sign announces "Wein & Lager Bier Salon." Potted plants screen the sides of the porch area, which covers the sidewalk to the curb. Under the overhang are outdoor tables where two male patrons can be seen seated with their beer steins. Looking south, a kiosk serves as a marker and a shelter for a street car stop. A horse-drawn street car is just visible, approaching in the distance. The kiosk bears the lettering "Half Way Station" on one side, and "Mechler's Point" on the other side. It is clear from the back view that the front of the building is on a height facing the river. Consulting a present day map of Weehawken, it would appear likely that "Mechler's Point" marks the intersection of Park Avenue and Broadway (north of the present-day Lincoln Tunnel outlet and partway uphill). The street car tracks would have therefore run along Broadway. The rear view of the building offers a fuller understanding of the premises. The sign on the roof facing rear also announces Ph. Mechler's Bakery. Under that, however, is "Wein & Bier Saloon," "Gerade Wie in Deutschland" (Just as in Germany). Clearly Mechler is offering a taste of home. The building has a back garden accessed a few steps down from street level through a decorative arched entry. The sign on the arch says, again "PH. Mechler," "Gerade wie in Deutschland," and lastly "Mensch argere dich nicht!" which, loosely translated, might be understood as "Leave your troubles at the door," a fitting slogan for a beer garden. This rear entrance has an extended canopy leading to the building. The woman appearing to enter suggests that the "back" area is more genteel, and thus suitable for women (since German beer gardens were very much community centers). The two figures visible in the rear window also appear to be female. Though this is still the age of horse-drawn travel, it is clear from the overhead telegraph lines on Park Avenue that we are very much on the cusp of the modern technological revolution. The streets are lit by gas lamps. On Park Avenue a gentleman rides a horse and a couple are riding in a hansom cab, apparently on their way to Mechler's. The building has a trough in front for the animals and stables to the right. On Broadway, where the tracks run, no horses are in evidence. Broadway is still the more rural street, however. The land climbs uphill behind Mechler's. Meyer's technique in these works appears to be topographical, that is to say, a precisely observed and transcribed record of the scene as the artist saw it and wished to preserve it. The hope is that continuing research into the biography of the artist as well as the history of Mechler's Bakery, and the German-American community in Weehawken will reveal additional information to supplement the present purely visual evidence that we have on hand.

'One of Europe's most outstanding collectors was Philippe Dautzenberg, of Ixelles, near Brussels. Heir to a fortune in the carpet industry he could afford to spend a great deal of money on shells and conchological literature. A born collector, Dautzenberg accumulated specimens with a zeal and a discernment rarely equalled; and by 1914 it was estimated that his cabinets contained thirty thousand species . with E. Bucquoy and G.F. Dollfus (he) wrote a large work on the marine molluscs of the Roussillon, South France, generally recognised as the best available account of western Mediterranean molluscs' (Dance p. 165).

        John Jorrocks, Esq. : Four depictions of Surtees's colorful fox-hunting hero of Handley Cross and other sporting novels; watercolor on board, each signed G. Bridgman and dated 1882

      n.p, 1882. Size 10-1/2 by 14-1/2 inches. The Cockney grocer, resplendent in hunting scarlet and mounted on his intermittently faithful Arterxerxes, is shown waving a greeting to cap-touching rurals, approaching a stream during a hunt, emerging safely on the other side, and wending his way home as dusk falls. . Mitchell, British Equestrian Artists, p. 134 . Of Bridgman, Mitchell notes, "Little can be traced of this caricaturist whose figures all have delightful smiling faces with rosy cheeks and noses. A set of four hunting watercollours is recorded, as is "Boxing night at the music hall". It is possible that the watercolors mentioned are the ones offered here; they appear to have been done as illustrations to one of Surtees's novels, probably his masterpiece, Handley Cross

        On Guard," being Extracts from the Journal of an Indian Subaltern

      London: Jas. Nisbet & Co.,, 1882. [together with;] Reminiscences of the Zulu War; or the Worth of the Army Scripture Reader by a "Staff Sergeant. Duodecimo. Original red cloth, title gilt to the upper board, blind panels to both boards, royal blue surface-paper endpapers. Very slightly damp-mottled on the boards, light toning, but a very good copy. First editions of both of these titles, here bound together, are uncommon, COPAC shows just three of the former and four of the latter title, OCLC adds no further copies. Nisbet was published largely for the evangelical and juvenile markets, and this little volume is no exception, combining elements of both. The first relates the conversion of Private Musgrave in India, while in the second, "The prefatory note, signed by H.J. Everard [actually W.J. Evered] Poole, contains a tract written by Mrs. Everard Poole entitled "What a Penny Once Did," and relates an incident regarding a soldier leaving for Zululand. The second part … is contributed by Staff Sergeant Beatson" (Mendelssohn). Raugh incorrectly identifies Beatson as Finlay C. Beatson, who served with the 62nd Regiment at around the right dates, joining in 1873, becoming the adjutant in 1878, and later being second-in-command in the Second Boer War; the Staff Sergeant served with the 99th, and was very definitely ORs. An excellent copy.
