        A Monograph of the Jacamars and the Puff-Birds, or Families Galbulidae and Bucconidae

      printed by Taylor & Francis, published for the Author by R.H. Porter, London 1882 - (12 3/8 x 9 7/8 inches). 1p. list of subscribers, letterpress title with wood-engraved vignette. 55 hand-coloured lithographic plates by John Gerrard Keulemans, printed by Hanhart. With the original parts front wrappers bound in the rear. Early red half morocco and red pebble-grained cloth-covered boards, spine in six compartments with raised bands, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments First edition of this beautifully-illustrated monograph, limited to 250 copies, with plates by Keulemans: "the major bird book illustrator" of his time (Jackson). John Gerrard Keulemans (1842-1912) is described by Christine Jackson as "the major bird book illustrator for 30 years at the end of the 19th century" ( Dictionary of Bird Artists of the World , 1999, p.314), and an artist who "worked to a consistently high standard." This is certainly true of the excellent illustrations in the present work. Every species is carefully depicted against a naturalistic background, with the plummage precisely indicated and beautifully coloured. Sclater notes in the preface that "The Jacamars and Puff-birds formed the subject of some of my earliest studies in Ornithology. Of the former of these families I published a Synopsis in 1852, of the latter in 1856. Since those dates I have not failed to add to my series of examples of both groups whenever the opportunity has presented itself. Assisted by the additional materials thus acquired, and by the excellent collection of the birds. in the cabinets of my friends Salvin and Godman . it has been a great pleasure to me to go over former ground and . to give a complete account of what is as yet known of the Jacamars and Puff-birds." The work was issued in seven parts by Sclater, each part priced at one guinea. The size of the work was intended to be uniform with Dresser's Birds of Europe, Sharpe's Kingfishers, Marshall's Barbets , and Shelley's Sun-birds. The Jacamars and Puffbirds are insect-eating birds, natives of the Caribbean, central and south America, and are apparently related to the trogons and woodpeckers. They inhabit the dense tropical forest, and can usually be seen sitting motionless on trees from which they fly out to catch insects on the wing, then return to crack them on a branch before eating them. Anker 451; Fine Bird Books (1990), p.106; Nissen IVB 840; Wood, p.558; Zimmer, p.561. 7 parts in one volume, royal quarto [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Leçons cliniques sur l'épilepsie

      Paris, Bureau du progrès médical, Delahaye et Lecrosnier, 1882, in-8, [2] ff, 87 pp, 1 pl. hors texte et 16 pp. de catalogue d'éditeur, broché, couverture imprimée de l'éditeur, ÉDITION ORIGINALE de cet ensemble de leçons données par Valentin Magnan à l'asile Sainte-Anne qui furent recueillies et publiées par Marcel Briand, médecin inspecteur adjoint des asiles d'aliénés de la Seine. Cet ouvrage comprend 6 leçons ayant pour objet d'étude l'épilepsie, ses formes diverses et ses traitements. En effet, Magnan définissait l'épilepsie comme "une névrose à paroxysmes, caractérisée par des accès intermittents, avec perte de connaissance, accès qui peuvent se montrer sous forme d'attaques convulsives, de vertiges, d'absences ou de délire spécial (épilepsie larvée)." Ce trouble neurologique héréditaire peut trouver sa source dans plusieurs causes : l'alcoolisme, la folie du père ou de la mère, le mariage consanguin des parents et, dans quelques cas rares, des émotions morales comme la frayeur. Magnan interrogeait également la responsabilité des épileptique à travers ces leçons. Ces réflexions sont par ailleurs illustrée d'une planche hors texte présentant un comparatif de deux diagrammes d'attaques épileptiques, l'une d'un chien, l'autre d'un enfant de 16 ans. Valentin Magnan (1835-1916), disciple de Jean Pierre Falret, fut aliéniste et professeur à Sainte-Anne durant toute sa carrière. Il s'intéressait de près à la question de la folie héréditaire. En outre, en 1886, s'ouvrait à la Société médico-psychologique, une discussion sur les signes physiques, intellectuels et moraux de la folie héréditaire, à laquelle Magnan prenait une part active. (SEMELAIGNE, II, p.210 et suiv.) Bon exemplaire malgré quelques taches sur les plats. Cachet ex-libris du docteur Carrier sur la page de titre.

Promotional pamphlet for the Burlington & Missouri River Railroad Company, advertising lands for sale in Nebraska. The cover claims, "No state offers greater advantages in soil, climate, rail roads, market facilities or grand opportunities to the farmer and stock raiser than Nebraska." The text commences on a high note: "This is the State whose latch string is out, and offers homes and promises of prosperity to all who will come." The emphasis is agriculture and stock raising, with glowing essays including "Great Grazing District," "Livestock in the State," "Orchards and Groves Planted," "The Pure Air of the Prairies," "The Herd Law - No Fences Allowed," "The Cheapest Lands in America," "Sheep Raising in Nebraska," "Education the Birthright of Every Nebraska Child," etc. OCLC lists two similar items, each in a single copy: one at Yale with the imprint of Lincoln: State Journal Co., 1881?; and one at the Huntington with the imprint of St. Louis: A. Gast, 1881? The present copy has no imprint. A. Zeese & Co., the Chicago engraving firm who is attributed on the first map, specialized in half tones, zinc etching, relief-line, lithogravure, and photoelectric type. Chicago seems to us the most likely place of printing for all the editions noted above.

        Asie Mineure.

      1882 - depuis les Temps les plus anciens jusqu'a la Battalille d'Ancyre, en 1402. [With] TEXIER (Charles). Asie Mineure Description Géographique, Historique et Archéologique des Provinces et des Villes de la Chersonnése d'Asie. 2 vols. 6 folding maps & 64 plates. 8vo. Contemporary quarter cloth, French marbled boards spines gilt. [iv], 530; [iv], 758pp. Paris, Firmin-Didot, 1878 & A very attractive set of volumes bringing together the work of two of the most important writers on Asia Minor. In order to make a more balanced pair the first 32 plates of Texier are bound in at the end of the Le Bas volume. Trained as an archaeologist, Texier superintended excavations at Ostia before departing for the Levant. He made three journeys to the region between 1834 and 1836, returning to France in 1837 to start work on Description of Asia Minor. This book, ?probably the greatest work of exploration made by a single traveller? (Blackmer), was not so much an account of his journey but rather the summation of the information he had collected en route. Le Bas meanwhile started his archaeological travels some ten years later, travelling throughout Greece and Asia Minor from January 1843 to December 1844, and collecting more than 4000 inscriptions along the way.

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

      Precious autograph card signed on a bristol to the author's number and to the heading of his home of 83 rue Dulong, addressed to the famous Countess Potocka, of which he was one of the most fervent "Macahabés" or "dead of love" .Maupassant had a real passion for this muse, which inspired him several characters, including Christiane Andermatt in Mont-Oriol , and the Baronne de Frémines in Notre Coeur.These little gray cards with the initials of Maupassant served to the almost instantaneous messenger writer generally destroyed after reading.Sometimes, however, at the turn of a rendezvous, a chaste prayer slides towards the licentious declaration and the dedicatee keeps this improvised sweet note."It is understood, madam, but at what hour, eleven or twelve o'clock?"I pray for you morning and evening.If you knew what I ask of heaven?Allow me, madam, to kiss your hands.Maupassant. "Françoise Mobihan admirably describes the apartment at 83 rue Dulong where Maupassant lived from 1881 to 1884 and in which he knew his first worldly successes:"Three rooms kitchen, rent of 450. Tired of the hustle and bustle of the rue Clauzel and the Bréda district, Maupassant quietly starts, with the Batignolles, its gradual migration towards the west of Paris and its bourgeois districts. New, but well-known land: Gustave, his father, moved two hundred years earlier, at 72, bd des Batignolles, in front of Chaptal College, on the fourth floor of 83 rue Dulong, in a small Stone, its three rooms calm and luminous, on street and courtyard, allows Guy to write at a steady rate his chronicles and news - La Maison Tellier, Mademoiselle Fifi ... - a first novel - A life - and organize For his friends, confreres and conquests, married or not, often animated evenings, such as the one that earned him a shot in hand and was cared for by his concierge. 'to ten- Seven invitations a day - Guy first hired a cook, then, in November 1883, a valet, François Tassart, 27, who will accompany him in all his travels and will be devoted to him until the tragic days of the house Of Dr. Blanche. Invaded by piles of books and "cluttered with trinkets like a boudoir of little mistress" 5 - according to friend Maizeroy - this apartment will be a permanent challenge to his know-how. 5 Gil Blas, 3 July 1882. Quoted by Marlo Johnston, Guy de Maupassant, Fayard, 2012, p. 414. 3 At the bottom of the building, at the Cardinet crossroads, pass the trains that run from the Saint-Lazare station to the banks of the Seine and Normandy. From his window, Guy no doubt looks at them. Exactly as Georges Duroy did in Bel Ami (1885), from the top of his little room in the rue Boursault, on the other side of the railway.[Paris] (circa 1882) 11,5x9cm un carton et son enveloppe

        Specimen Days & Collect

      David McKay, Philadelphia 1882 - First edition, second issue with the McKay imprint. Some moderate erosion to the cloth on the spine, paper over the front hinge starting, else a very good copy. Very nicely Inscribed by Whitman to a fellow author: "To Churchill Williams from his friend the Author with love. December 27, 1883." Francis (or Frank) Churchill Williams was the son of a successful playwright, and an 1891 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania (where he was class president in his senior year). Aside from publishing two novels (including an interesting book about Philadelphia politics, *J. Devlin, Boss*), he was an active member of the Philadelphia publishing world as a journalist, editor, and publisher. He apparently was well-known to most of the literary figures of the time, and is recorded as a guest at Mark Twain's 70th birthday party. Something of a literary prodigy at Germantown Academy where he attended high school, Whitman's inscription was written to Williams when the latter was 14 years old, a freshman at Germantown, and already winning literary prizes. Presumably Whitman, ensconced across the river in Camden, was warmly acquainted with young Williams, as the affectionate inscription would seem to indicate. Whitman was an active and agreeable signer, but for whatever reason, *Specimen Days* isn't often found signed by its author, especially with this degree of affection. See this book in 3D on our site.

The scarce folio edition, the only one authorized by Wagner himself, which on account of its large size is preferred to the small octavo edition. This is the single most important record of the first performances of Wagner's "Parsifal." The complete suites of original scenic designs and costume designs by Paul von Joukowsky; the portfolio was issued almost immediately after the famous opening occurred in July, 1882; the designs illustrate precisely how Wagner and his designer envisioned the entire opera, and how their designs were realized onstage for the first and subsequent performances. The plates were executed in heliography after original drawings by set designer Paul von Joukowsky (a.k.a. Joukovsky), who designed all of the costumes and four of the five sets for "Parsifal." Construction of the actual sets was accomplished by the brothers Max and Gotthold Bruckner, of the Coburg Court Theater, after Joukowsky's designs. Joukowsky (1845-1912), a Russian / German aristocrat and "aesthete," is considered to have been among Richard and Cosima Wagner's closest friends. Joukowsky was introduced to the Wagners at the Villa d'Angri in 1880 and accompanied them on their visits to Ravello and Siena; it is a little-known fact that the opera's Klingsor garden was modeled after the lush garden at the Hotel Caruso, in Ravello, where they all vacationed together. Joukowski openly acknowledged himself as a homosexual, and was a special friend of Henry James. "Parsifal" remains Joukowsky's best-known work, and it continues to inspire modern scenic-designers, scholars, and admirers of Wagner's music everywhere. "A key to the [scenic] design and to the significance of Parsifal is transformation. The outer acts move from the open air to the innards of a duomo; the middle act from a sorcerer's turret to a garden of excess, then to blank ruination. Wagner allows his transformations to carry his most oblique and notorious utterance in the drama: as Parsifal and Gurnemanz progress in Act I from the clearing to the Hall of the Grail, the gentle guardian tells the bright upstart, "You see, my son, here time becomes space." It was twenty years before Einstein figured that one out" (SOURCE: BBC Music Magazine, September 2003). LITERATURE: William Apthorp, "Wagner and Scenic Art" (1887) with 4 reproductions of the Joukowsky's designs. See also Kerstin Stutterheim's "Okkulte Weltvorstellungen im Hintergrund dokumentarischer Filme des Dritten Reiches," illustrating the ninth plate.

'Between 1869 and 1875 Findlay prepared and published six navigational directories which in text, maps, and diagrams documented the winds, currents, coastlines, and other information necessary for navigation in the major oceans of the world. The directories ran to several editions and were regarded as the standard authorities' (ODNB). - This pilot guide for the Indian Ocean had been published first in 1866, and this is the fourth corrected and updated edition. The section of the Persian Gulf takes up page 822 to 861 and deals, apart from the navigation, with the products and trade of the region, as well as containing descriptions of the major ports and towns along the coast. The chapter headed Passages in the Arabian Seas (pp. 168-180) is on the sailing conditions in the Gulf. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Bevis. The Story of a Boy. Complete in three volumes.

      Sampson, Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, London, 1882. First edition - complete in three volumes. Miller & Matthews' primary printing and binding. 8vo. 287pp, 294pp and 294pp. Green cloth, lettered in gold at spines with a black- and gold-stamped decoration to the upper boards. Decorated endpapers. The bindings of all three volumes shaken and quite tender, cracked at a number of gatherings but holding. Spine heads rubbed and with just a touch of light chafing to corner tips. Endpapers a little browned, with a touch of light spotting to edges, and preliminary and concluding leaves. Former owner name and date (1938) neatly inked to a blank flyleaf in each volume. Really quite a bright if tender set of Jefferies' boyhood classic, the sequel to 'Wood Magic' (1881): really quite uncommon in this primary green binding (there is some considerable debate over the priority between the green and brown bindings, and here I bow to George Miller's proven scholarship in deducing the green set over the brown see Miller & Matthews B15.1). Produced in a likely print run of between 750 and 1,000 copies. Only the second such set we have had in over a decade.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good.

        An Exceedingly Rare Original Albumen Photograph of Oscar Wilde with His Original Signature.

      New York City: Napoleon Sarony, 1882. Rare Original Albumen Photograph Taken in New York City by Napoleon Sarony on 2 January 1882, during Wilde's Tour of America. Mounted on ivory paper, bordered and captioned in manuscript. Photograph measures approximately 5,75 cm x 8,75 cm. Leaf measures approximately 9,5 cm x 17 cm. John Cooper, historian and scholar, member of the Oscar Wilde Society in London, and founder of the Oscar Wilde Society of America, has compiled a most impressive collection of images, "the only online or print archive of all the known photographs of Oscar Wilde taken by Napoleon Sarony." While Oscar Wilde's pose in the present photograph is very similar to some of the images taken 2 January 1882, this image from the shoot is not present his collection. As such this may very well be the first public appearance of this particular photograph. Shortly after his arrival in New York City for his 1882 Lecture Tour of America, Oscar Wilde posed for a series of photographs taken by Napoleon Sarony, who was at the time the most famed portrait photographer in America. Taken at Sarony's studio at 37 Union Square, New York City, on 5 January 1882, Sarony's photographs of Oscar Wilde with his long wavy locks have become his most iconic images today. Wilde would revisit New York in August 1883; Sarony taking several more photographs, this time with Wilde's hair cut styled in a much shorter boy cut. Unknown to many today, the first ever production of an Oscar Wilde play was in fact in New York City, and many years before his great success on the London stage. In August 1883 Wilde's first, though unsuccessful, play "Vera, or The Nihilists," was staged for the first time; Wilde made his second visit to America for a month to oversee the production. Together with his Original Signature Penned in ink on white paper, clipped and mounted with the photograph Slightly age-toned from the Victorian mounting paste, mainly to mounting leaf and autograph clipping. Otherwise photograph and signature are in Good Condition.. Photo.
