      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.

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

        Vera: or, The Nihilists. A Drama in a Prologue and Four Acts.

      [New York: privately printed for the author,] 1882 - Octavo. Original grey-blue wrappers printed in black. Housed in a purple cloth slipcase and chemise. Wrappers a little rubbed and tanned, closed tear to lower joint, small chip from corner of upper wrapper. A very good copy. Interleaved with blank leaves as issued. First American edition, the second overall and the sole lifetime edition to print the complete text. Vera - Wilde's first play - is one of the legendary rarities in modern literature. First issued in an unprocurable edition in 1880, the work was then revised by Wilde, who added an entirely new prologue; it is this version which was printed for the production copies in New York in 1882. This printing, important in its own right, is known in only a handful of copies and represents the earliest procurable dramatic text by the most important English language dramatist of the century.

      London: Trübner & Co., 1882 - Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, device of an eight pointed star over a circle to front cover gilt, triple black rules to head and tail of front cover and spine, continuing across the back cover in blind. Spine bumped and a little rubbed, slight wear to corners, some foxing to the prelims, as usual , and some to the margins, but on the whole a very good copy. First edition, first impression. One of just 750 copies. On his return to Britain following the outbreak of the First Anglo-Boer War, Haggard had been unable to find a publisher willing to take on his "denunciation of Britain's South African policies." (ODNB) Eventually he paid Trübner £50 to put out this small run, but in confirmation of the publishing world's reticence, in two years it had sold just 154 copies. However, following the runaway success of King Solomon's Mines, the edition sold through and a second was published in 1888, reaching a fourth by 1891.

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.

        When I walk thru the Valley - Psalms of David

      n.p., n.d. - A fully realized but unfinished drawing of a robed young man in a state of grace passing through a group of anguished writhing bodies. William Andrew (Willy) Pogany (1882-1955) was born in Hungary, where he studied engineering. His success as a caricaturist led him to pursue a career in art, first in London, then in the United States. His influences were the Oriental artists and illuminated books, and most of his career was devoted to book illustration. Among his many successes were The Rubaiyat, Hungarian Fairy Book, and Gulliver's Travels. He also painted murals, created state settings, did illustrations for most of the major magazines, and exhibited widely over the course of a long career Pencil with india ink background on paper, hinged to backing board. Image size 7 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches, matted to 18 x 14 inches overall. Glue residue at bottom of image, else fine. Reed, The Illustrator in America 1880-1980, p. 105

        Panorama from Point Sublime

      - 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.
