        Essai sur L'histoire Naturelle des Vertebres de la Province et des Departements Circonvoisins: Vertebres Anallantantoidiens (Poissons et Batraciens)

      Marseillie: Marius Lebon, . First edition. 1882 - Pp. (7), 8-425 (3, index); 44 text-figures (line-drawings and halftones of fishes and frogs). Publisher's original reddish cloth over marbled boards, the spine is lettered in gilt and with blind-stamped panel lines, original marbled endpapers, sm 4to (10 x 6.5 inches; 255 x 170 mm). This work provides a natural history of the fishes and amphibians inhabiting the southern provinces of France. Jean Marius Francois Reguis (1850-1908) studied pharmacy at the School of Medicine in Marseille where he studied under Charles Lespes, Antoine-Fortune Marion, Alphonse Derbs, and Edouard Marie Heckel. After finishing his education, he moved to Meyrargues in southwest France to begin his studies on the batrachians, reptiles, birds, mammals, anthropology, invertebrates, botany, and geology of the area. He later joined the Faculty of Sciences at Marseille when he began writing a 16 volume encyclopedia on the natural history of southern France. Between 1876 and 1904 he published numerous monographs and journal articles on these topics, but they were never formally organized into his encyclopedia. This book appears to be one of the volumes in Regius' proposed encyclopedia. This volume has long tables of the species Regius described in the volume. Due to the extreme scarcity of the work, this volume was likely published in an edition of 500 copies or less. All of his published works are very hard to find. Regius died in 1908 after a lifetime of studying zoology, mycology, and botany of southern France. This volume is warmly inscribed by the author to F. Letarte of Paris, dated July 30, 1882. Later from the library of ichthyologist J. Bohlke with his small name stamp at the bottom of the title page and the dedication page. A rare regional work that seldom comes up for sale. The spine is sunned which has caused the leather to turn into golden tan, the title is fully readable on the spine, the text is clean and unused with some pages uncut and unopened; a tight and clean copy in very good condition.

        Before & After Marriage in Five Acts. Drawn by Cassius M. Coolidge. Copyright by Geo. M. Hayes.

      New York. Published by Barnum & Co. 1882. Single chromolithograph sheet of postcard stock folded into 6 panels, printed recto only. Folded 182 x 77mm, extended 182 x 462mm. An early satirical piece by the famous caricaturist and artist best known for his poker-playing dogs. In 1877 Cassius Coolidge published a short series of sketches entitled The Tale of Wedded Life In Ten Scenes that depict stages of relationships. It was available for one dollar, including shipping. Apparently after his self published work, Coolidge was commissioned to create a custom version of his scenes for Jaques, Atwood & Co. in Chicago. The story was cut from ten scenes to five, each placed on 3?x5? paper cards.

        Africana; Or, the Heart of Heathen Africa. Native Customs and Beliefs. [Volume 2: Mission Life.]

      London: Simpkin Marshall & Co., 1882 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original diagonal-ribbed dark yellow cloth over bevelled boards, spines and front boards lettered and decorated in gilt and black, rear boards ruled in blind, brown floral endpapers, binder's ticket (Jackson's Works, Aberdeen) to rear pastedowns. Housed in a custom blue cloth slipcase. Spines a touch sunned and bumped, tips lightly rubbed, small section of darkening to cloth at upper outer corner of vol. 1 front board, a small portion of cockling below, faint scuffing and a light score-mark to vol. 2 rear board, a few other trivial marks, these flaws minor: an excellent, fresh copy. Wood-engraved frontispiece, 8 similar plates, illustrations to the text. First edition of this important account of Malawi, from the celebrated travel collection of Franklin Brooke-Hitching, with his pencilled initials to the half-titles. Macdonald (1850-1929) arrived in the Shire Highlands in July 1878 as the first ordained minister of the newly-established Church of Scotland mission at Blantyre. During his tenure the mission assumed control of what Macdonald himself referred to as "civil jurisdiction", and became implicated in numerous abuses, including routine corporal punishment of any locals suspected of stealing mission property, leading to death in one instance and the flogging of an entirely innocent individual in another, and the large-scale expropriation of land "partly to forestall Portuguese claims to the sovereignty of the Shire Highlands" (Morris, An Environmental History of Southern Malawi, p. 53). Macdonald and others were recalled by the Foreign Mission Committee in 1881, and he spent the rest of his life as a parish minister. Despite the circumstances of his tenure, considered disreputable even by the standards of the day, his account is considered a "pioneer ethnographic study of the Yao" (ibid.) in a remarkably sympathetic vein.

        Carte autographe signée à la Comtesse Potocka. Désirs laconiques : "si vous saviez ce que je demande au ciel"

      - [Paris] (circa 1882), 11,5x9cm, un carton et son enveloppe. - carta di autografo prezioso firmato il Bristol la figura dell'autore e la direzione per la sua casa 83 rue Dulong, destinatari della famosa contessa Potocka, dove è stato uno dei più forti "Macahabés" o "amore morto" . Ben al di là del gioco d'amore della letteratura popolare in mostra contessa popolare, Maupassant sentiva una vera passione per questa musa che ha ispirato diversi personaggi le cui Christiane Andermatt a Mont-Oriol, e la baronessa Fremines nel nostro cuore. Queste piccole schede grigie iniziale Maupassant utilizzato per lo scrittore di messaggistica istantanea di solito quasi distrutte dopo la lettura. A volte, tuttavia, trasformando un appuntamento, una preghiera casta scivola al dedicatario dichiarazione licenziosa e quindi mantiene questa lettera d'amore improvvisato. "Resta inteso, signora, ma che ora? Undici un'ora a mezzogiorno? Io prego per voi mattina e sera. Se tu sapessi quello che chiedo il cielo? Mi scusi, signora, bacio le mani. Maupassant. " Françoise Mobihan descrive splendidamente l'appartamento di 83 Dulong strada Maupassant vissuto 1881-1884 e in cui ha vissuto il suo primo successo sociale: "Tre pezzi cucina, affitto di 450 franchi. Stanco di trambusto della Rue Clauzel e l'area Breda, Maupassant inizia in silenzio, con la Batignolles, la sua graduale migrazione verso ovest di Parigi e dintorni della classe media. L'indirizzo è nuova ma familiare a terra: Gustave, il padre si trasferì due mesi prima cinquecento metri di distanza, a 72, boulevard des Batignolles, di fronte al collegio Chaptal al quarto piano di 83 rue Dulong, in un piccolo edificio. pietra, le sue tre camere silenziose e luminose, la strada e cortile, consentendo Guy a scrivere a un ritmo sostenuto le sue colonne e le notizie - la Maison Tellier, Mademoiselle Fifi ... - un primo romanzo - una vita - e organizzare per i suoi amici, colleghi e conquiste, sposati o no, spesso intrattenimento serale frenetica Nay, come quella che ha portato al suo essere girato nella mano e curato dal suo portiere scrittore alla moda, molto occupato - .. si alza 'a dieci- sette inviti al giorno - Guy prima di assumere un cuoco, e in novembre 1883 un valletto, François Tassart, 27 anni, che lo accompagnerà nei suoi viaggi, e sarà dedicata ai tragici giorni della casa Dr bianco. pile di libri e Overgrown "ingombra di cianfrusaglie come un piccolo boudoir amante" 5 - secondo amico Maizeroy - questo appartamento sarà una sfida permanente per la sua esperienza. 5 Gil Blas, 3 luglio 1882. Citato da Marlo Johnston, Guy de Maupassant, Fayard, 2012, p. 414. 3 Nella parte inferiore dell'edificio, all'incrocio Cardinet, con treni sfrecciano della stazione Saint-Lazare alla Senna e la Normandia. Dalla sua finestra, il ragazzo sembra probabile. Esattamente come volontà Georges Duroy in Bel Ami (1885), la parte superiore della sua piccola stanza di Rue Boursault, dall'altra parte dei binari ". - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Précieuse carte autographe signée sur un bristol au chiffre de l'auteur et à l'entête de son domicile du 83 rue Dulong, adressée à la célèbre Comtesse Potocka, dont il fut un des plus fervents "Macchabées" ou "morts d'amour". Bien au delà du jeu d'amour littéraire en vogue dans le Salon très prisé de la Comtesse , Maupassant éprouvait une véritable passion pour cette muse qui lui inspira plusieurs personnages dont Christiane Andermatt dans Mont-Oriol, et la baronne de Frémines dans Notre Coeur. Ces petites cartes grises aux initiales de Maupassant servaient à l'écrivain de messagerie presque instantannée généralement détruites après lecture. Parfois cependant, au détour d'un rendez-vous, une chaste prière glisse vers la licencieuse déclaration et la dédicataire conserve alors ce billet doux improvisé. "C'est entendu, Madame, mais à quelle heure ? Onze heure ou midi ? Je prie pour vous matin et soir. Si vous saviez ce que je demande au ciel ? Permettez, madame, que je baise vos mains. Maupassant." Françoise Mobihan décrit admirablement l'appartement du 83 rue Dulong où Maupassant vécut de 1881 à 1884 et dans lequel il connaitra ses premiers succès mondains : " Trois pièces cuisine, loyer de 450 francs. Fatigué de l'agitation de la rue Clauzel et du quartier Bréda, Maupassant amorce discrètement, avec les Batignolles, sa migration progressive vers l'ouest de Paris et ses quartiers bourgeois. L'adresse est nouvelle mais le terrain connu : Gustave, son père, a emménagé deux mois plus tôt à cinq cents mètres de là, au 72, bd des Batignolles, en face du collège Chaptal. Au quatrième étage du 83 rue Dulong, dans un petit immeuble en pierre de taille, son trois pièces calme et lumineux, sur rue et cour, permet à Guy d'écrire à un rythme soutenu ses chroniques et nouvelles - La Maison Tellier, Mademoiselle Fifi... - un premier roman - Une vie - et d'organiser pour ses amis, confrères et conquêtes, mariées ou non, des soirées souvent animées. Voire mouvementées, comme celle qui lui valut d'être blessé par balle à la main et soigné par sa concierge. Écrivain en vogue, très sollicité - il reçoit jusqu'à dix-sept invitations par jour - Guy embauche d'abord une cuisinière, puis, en novembre 1883, un valet de chambre, François Tassart, 27 ans, qui l'accompagnera dans tous ses voyages et lui sera dévoué jusqu'aux jours tragiques de la maison du docteur Blanche. Envahi de piles de livres et « encombré de bibelots comme un boudoir de petite maîtresse » 5 - selon l'ami Maizeroy -, cet appartement sera un défi permanent à son savoir-faire. 5 Gil Blas, 3 juillet 1882. Cité par Marlo Johnston, Guy de Maupassant, Fayard, 2012, p. 414. 3 En bas de l'immeuble, au carrefour Cardinet, passent les trains qui filent de la gare Saint-Lazare vers les bords de Seine et la Normandie. De sa fenêtre, Guy les regarde sans doute. Exactement comme le fera Georges Duroy, dans Bel Ami (1885), du haut de sa petite chambre de la rue Boursault, de l'autre côté de la voie ferrée."

Each volume features a frontispiece engraving, some of which are portraits of Wordsworth. errata in each vol. of biography. Inside the pages are clean and the text unmarked. Many pages remain uncut throughout the set. Water damage to binding on vol. 3 with stains on spine and back board. Bindings on the other 10 volumes good with mainly shelf wear: bumped corners, worn extremes with the occasional tear in cloth, occasional scuffing. The last three volumes of this set are "A Life," by editor, Knight. Knight did some of the earliest work on the text of Wordsworth and he produced for this edition a chronological arrangement of the poems. His good intentions were not generally appreciated, but were excoriated. A contemptuous reference to his scholarship spoke of "chaos and old Knight." The historical significance of this set's controversial chronology of Wordsworth's poetry makes it a valuable resource for Wordsworth scholars and research libraries. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The first facsimiles are followed by the August 1882 Magazine of American History. Volume VII, Number 8 titled Old Pelham and New Rochelle which is numbered from page 521 to537 with notes in the hand of Howland Pell on the lower margins of several pages. This is followed by several pages titled "Original Documents" with a picture of "Part of Iroquois Lake" pasted in. Then comes type written text titled New York, CLXXI: Intelligence by Ensign John Pell which is followed by what appears to be several hand-written pages. Finally there area couple of newspaper articles pasted onto the last pages with a final note by Howland Pell. Binding shows wear in spots along the edges with small whips along the front joint of the spine, some scuffing of the panels, Howland Pell's bookplate on the front paste down with his signature, notes here-and-there by Howland Pell throughout the text, end papers pulled in spots along the hinge but still secure. Images available. USPS tracking used on all domestic shipments. . No Edition Stated. Full-Leather. Good/No Dust Jacket.

        Le Calvaire. Golgatha.

      - Galvano Evely, 1882, auf Japan, unten mittig eigenhändig rot monogrammiert. 28:20,6 cm, vollrandig. Literatur: Mascha 661; Ramiro 227; Exteens 787. Aus der Serie «Les Sataniques». Rops war einer der bedeutendsten Graphiker und Illustratoren seiner Zeit. Nach einer Erziehung durch Privatlehrer ging der Sohn eines Textilfabrikanten an das Jesuitenkolleg in Namur. 1849 wurde er vom Kolleg verwiesen, in diesem Jahr verstarb sein Vater, ging dann an das Königliche Athenäum in Namur, schrieb sich jedoch auch gegen den Willen seines später verhaßten Vormunds an der dortigen Académie des Beaux-Arts ein, wo er Aktkurse besuchte. 1853 setzte er sein Studium an der Universität in Brüssel fort, wo er zudem das freie Atelier Saint-Luc besuchte. Ab 1856 gründete er zusammen mit seinem Freund Ch. de Coster (1827-1879) die Zeitschrift L'Uylenspiegel, journal des débats littéraires et artistiques, für die er bis 1857 Illustrationen schuf, meist Karikaturen. Nach der Verheiratung mit Charlotte Polet de Faveaux, der Tochter des Gerichtspräsidenten von Namur, lebte er abwechselnd in seiner Geburtsstadt und im Sommer auf Schloß Thozée bei Mettet, wo ihn auch zahlreiche Künstlerfreunde besuchten; später kamen noch Paris und Brüssel als ständig wechselnde Aufenthaltsorte hinzu. 1868 war er Mitbegründer der „Société des Beaux Arts". 1869 verliebte er sich in die Schwestern Léontine und Aurélie Duluc, zwei junge Modeschöpferinnen, mit denen er ab 1874 in Paris zusammenlebte und auch Kinder hatte. Reisen unternahm er in den nächsten Jahren an die Nordsee, nach Skandinavien, Ungarn und Spanien, in die Vereinigten Staaten und nach Nordafrika. 1888 wurde ihm der Orden der französischen Ehrenlegion verliehen. Rops hatte vor allem großen Erfolg als Illustrator, zuerst mit den Werken de Costers, dann arbeitete er auch für Baudelaire, mit dem er sich befreundete, sowie für J. Barbey d Aurevilly, St. Mallarmé, P. Verlaine, J. Péladan u.a.
