        Savannah River to Saint Helena Sound including Calibogue Sound, Port Royal and Broad River

      London: Published by the Admiralty, May 1882. Engraving. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition. Image size: 25 1/4 x 38 1/4 inches. 27 x 40 inches. A fantastic Admiralty chart of the Savannah River to St. Helena Sound, produced by the British Hydrographic Office. The British Hydrographic Office was founded in 1795 by George III, who appointed Alexander Dalrymple as the first Hydrographer to the Admiralty. He immediately set to work but it was not until 1800 that the first Admiralty chart was published of the waters around Quiberon Bay in Brittany. Unlike the U. S. Coast Survey the Hydrographic Office was given permission to sell charts to the public and they produced a great number of sea charts covering every corner of the globe. Most of the Admiralty charts produced by the Hydrographic Office delineated coastline as well as high and low water marks and record depth of water as established by soundings. In addition these charts included information on shoals, reefs, and other navigational hazards that plagued mariners across the world. Thanks to the innovations of Sir Francis Beaufort, who developed the Beaufort Scale of wind strength, the British Hydrographic Office became one of the leading producers of sea charts. This large chart covers the Port Royal Sound including the Savannah River, the Calibogue Sound, and the Broad River. Water depths and sand bars are all carefully recorded, as are the various lighthouses along the coastline. This is an important sea chart of this area and a wonderful example of the maps produced by the British Hydrographic Office.

        History of the War in the Peninsula

      London: Published for the Proprietor by Barthès & Lowell,, 1882. and in the South of France, from the year 1807 to the Year 1814. New Edition, Revised by the Author. 6 volumes, octavo (290 × 118 mm). Contemporary red hard-grained morocco by Gray of Cambridge, title gilt direct to the spine, narrow, flat bands reeded in gilt, compartments elaborately gilt, double gilt panel with floral corner pieces to the boards, enclosing a wavy panel in blind, foliate edge-roll, all edges gilt, inner dentelles in blind, marbled endpapers. 55 engraved battle plans. A little rubbed on the joints, bands, and head and tail of the spines, corners bumped, light toning, but remains attractive. First published between 1828-50, this is an attractively bound Cabinet Edition. A work that certainly divided opinion, "Soult considered it 'perfect', Sir Robert Peel 'eloquent and faithful', the Spanish general Alava felt it too pro-French, and a British officer in India demanded satisfaction on his return for a 'most unfounded calumny' about his conduct at Barossa" (ODNB) As a result all volumes have plump appendices of "justificatory pieces" in answer to Napier's critics, his controversy with Beresford over Albuera was particularly rancourous. Perhaps judgement is best left to the acknowledged master chronicler of the conflict, Sir Charles Oman, who described Napier's work as "magnificent (if somewhat prejudiced and biased)". Contemporary gift inscription to the first blank of volume I, small ink-stamps of the military historian Col. Frederick Myatt, author of British Sieges of the Peninsular War. A very nice set.

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).

      extract from Berliner Klinische Wochenschrift (vol. 19), Berlin, 1882. pp. 221-230; 31 cm. Garrison/Morton 2331: "Discovery of the tubercle bacillus announced March 24, 1882. This paper also contains a statement of `Koch's postulates'." Dibner, Heralds of Science no. 134: "Using the advantage of new improvements in techniques such as photomicroscopy, staining, oil-immersed lenses, and pure cultures, Koch and his colleagues placed the new science of microbiology on a sound basis. In the above paper, a triumph in science and medicine, Koch isolated and identified the tubercle bacillus, establishing the infectious nature of the disease, and opened the way to combat one of the worst scourges of mankind. Using body fluids and blood serum as host, Koch was able to cause anthrax and tubercular organisms to grow outside the body." "Koch is really our medical Galileo, who... introduced us to a new world. It is not too much to say that the demonstrations by Koch of the 'bacillus tuberculosis' (1882), is, in its far-reaching results, one of the most momentous discoveries ever made." --Osler, Evolution of Modern Medicine. Koch was awarded the Nobel Prize for this work. Printing and the Mind of Man 366. OB 573. Vg, in marbled paper covers.

      234 pp. + plates. 8vo. Cloth. First edition. Illus. with 77 monochrome carbon print photographic plates. Buchanan 1. Two versions of this catalogue were produced, one without plates, and this, the illustrated version, with carbon prints by James Craig Annan (1864-1946), son of the Scottish photographer Thomas Annan. Annan was only 18 when he produced this series of prints (uncredited) for the spectacular Duke of Hamilton sale. There were 2213 lots auctioned over fifteen days in five sections which brought in 397, 000 British pounds! In addition to the paintings offered, which could have easily formed their own museum -works by Botticelli, Breugel, Da Vinci, Durer, Fra Angelico, Giorgione, Holbein, Rembrandt, Rubens, Titian, Van Dyke, Veronese, and more- there was French furniture, Asian bronzes and lacquers, Sevres and Desden porcelain, and decorative objects in profusion. Photographs were somewhat new to illustrating auctions and "this is an early use of photography for a sale catalogue, " according to William Buchanan in his "J. Craig Annan. Selected Texts and Bibliography, " (Oxford. 1994), p. 137. Annan would go on to become an important British pictorial photographer and one of its master photogravure printers, contributing both is own work and gravures for other British photographers to Stiglitz' Camera Work (the January 1914 issue -no. 45- was devoted entirely to him). Scarce, especially in such beautiful condition and in such a fine binding. A near fine copy, rubbing on verso of plates, plates numbered in pencil.

        Egenhändigt skrivet och undertecknat brev till G. Jean-Aubry.

      Daterat »Maison Casilhac, Banyuls-sur-Mer 5.1. 23 Pyr. or.». 2 s. »Det gläder mig mycket att Ert övriga arbete inte skall hindra Er att översätta Himlens hemlighet. Och att Ni tänker utge mina enaktare i bokform är ju likaså synnerligen glädjande. Tyvärr har jag ju ännu åstadkommit så litet både på detta område och andra, i varje fall mindre än jag tycker jag borde ha gjort. För närvarande är jag sysselsatt med ett skådespel av större format, kanske kan det komma att intressera Er. - Att Ni känner Hébertot är ju utmärkt, så bör saken lättare kunna ordnas. I en intervju i en svensk tidning har han yttrat att han kommer att uppföra H[imlens]. h[emlighet].» Lagerkvist skriver också att han bifogar en efterfrågad artikel om honom som varit införd i Politiken, »den uppehåller sig dock tyvärr inte så mycket vid vad ni gjort för mig men innehåller mest oriktigheter och överdrifter». Avslutningsvis diskuterar han möjligheterna att träffas, samt framför en hälsning till Louise Alvar.. G. Jean-Aubry var pseudonym för Jean-Frédéric-Emile Aubry (1882-1950), fransk musikkritiker och översättare, bl. a. av sin vän Joseph Conrad över vilken han även skrev en biografi. Jean-Aubry hade tillsammans med Louise Alvar gjort den första översättningen av Lagerkvist till Franska, »Le moment difficile», publicerad i La revue de Genève, 3 (1921), s. 733-47. Den 22 januari 1922 skickade Jean-Aubry arvodet med ett brev (det enda från honom som bevarats i Kungl. Bibliotekets Lagerkvistsamling). Föreliggande brev gäller en planerad översättning av Himlens hemlighet, vilken troligen inte utfördes, åtminstone tycks den inte ha publicerats. Inte heller några andra Lagerkvistöversättningar av Jean-Aubry tycks ha utgivits.<p>Teatermannen Jacques Hébertot, som nämns i brevet, hörde till dem som kommit att intressera sig för Lagerkvists dramatik. De gemensamma vännerna Rolf de Maré och »Nils de Dardel» hade gjort honom uppmärksam på den svenske författaren och han ville gärna uppföra något av honom, kanske just »Le secret du ciel» som han hört mycket talas om, och som Lagerkvist hoppades att Jean-Aubry skulle översätta. Hébertot och Lagerkvist utväxlade några brev rörande dessa planer, men något samarbete tycks inte ha blivit av. Lagerkvist sände emellertid Hébertot sin senaste bok via Dardel i slutet av oktober 1923, troligen Den osynlige, som utkom ett par veckor senare. Pär Lagerkvist uppger som synes ett antal olika avsändar­adresser under 1910- och 1920-talen, rot- och rastlösa år då han i långa perioder bodde i Danmark, Frankrike och Italien
