        History of Corea Ancient and Modern with Description of Manners and Customs, Language and Geography.

      xii, 404 pp. Octavo. Original brown cloth with gilt decoration on the front board. Gilt title on spine. Minor professional repair on the top and bottom of spine. Original coated black endpapers. Bookplate on front pastedown. Eight plates in total including four in colour and four in black and white. Three maps including one folding. A very clean attractive copy.Very Scarce especially in the original cloth. The author spent 7 years in Manchuria and draws on his extensive experience with this long history. The book also has a wonderful association as Percival Lowell has signed the book in pencil on the front free endpaper in Yokohama in August 18, 1883. Lowell in his early life was a noted scholar of South East Asia and in later life the great observer of Mars, Starting the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff Arizona. Books out of the Lowell library are almost impossible to find these day. This is a prime example.

        Index molluscorum maris japonici. Conscriptus et tabulis iconum xvi illustratus.

      Casselis Cattorum [Kassel], Theodor Fischer, 1882. 4to (27.3 x 22.1 cm). vii, 301 pp., 16 finely lithographed plates of which 13 superbly hand-coloured. Near contemporary grained blue half cloth over grained burgundy cloth. Script title on the spine.l Rare, rather early, and extremely well-illustrated work on Japanese Mollusca, which includes new species. Wilhelm Bernard Rudolph [or Rudolf] Hadrian Dunker (1809-1885) was geology professor at the University of Marburg, and founder of Palaeontographica, the most important palaeontographical periodical of the 19th century. He was one of the most important malacologists of his time (Wikipedia). He was usually known as Wilhelm, a name sometimes Latinized to Guilielmo, as on the title page of this work. The plates are of great accuracy and beauty. Their quality was not reached again until more than 50 years later when the Japanese started to publish their own full colour shell books, printed in 6 to 12 colours. Binding a bit shaky, first three plates rather foxed, as usual; the other coloured plates quite clean. Nissen ZBI, 1208.

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1882.. Octavo, two volumes: pp. [i-vi] [1] 2-200; [i-vi] [1] 2-203 [204: blank], original decorated burgundy cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, top and fore edges untrimmed, bottom edge trimmed, blue green coated endpapers. First edition. Trollope's only science fiction novel, originally published as a serial in BLACKWOOD'S MAGAZINE, October 1881 -- March 1882. "The oddest item in all Trollope's fiction. THE FIXED PERIOD is set in the future republic of Britannula, an island off Australia. The president has decreed that all citizens reaching the age of sixty-seven are to enter a 'college.' There, they will be prepared for death at age sixty-eight. (Trollope was sixty-seven when he wrote the story and died five months before his sixty-eighth birthday.) The first candidate for this euthanasia, Gabriel Crasweller, loses his enthusiasm for the 'fixed period' scheme as his own term approaches. Rescue is provided by the British navy, which returns Britannula to the rational rule of the Empire. Critics have sneered at the poverty of science fiction imagination in this work. But the story is a nice reworking of Trollope's THE WARDEN (1855) where the elderly inhabitants of Hiram's Hospital are prepared for death in more traditional fashion." - Sutherland, Victorian Fiction, 227-8. "The story is rambling, as is usual with Trollope, and uneconomical. The vision of principles through a distorted character is only partly successful. Scholars of Trollope do not regard the novel very highly, perhaps because it is different from what one expects of the author, but THE FIXED PERIOD is by no means discreditable and is entertaining." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 2203.

        The Merv Oasis. Travels and Adventures East of the Caspian during the Years 1879-80-81 including Five Months' Residence among the Tekkês of Merv.

      London: Smith, Elder, & Co., 1882 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original brown cloth, gilt lettered spines. Very slight dishing of covers otherwise an excellent set. Engraved portrait frontispiece of O'Donovan, 15 plates of maps, plans and facsimiles (some folding), large coloured folding map of the Russo–Persian frontier (in pocket at end of volume II). First edition. "In 1879 O'Donovan, still in search of adventure, undertook, again as Daily News correspondent, his celebrated journey to Merv in Turkestan – a daring, difficult, and hazardous feat, with which his name became associated. From the Russian advanced posts on the south-eastern shores of the Caspian Sea he travelled through Khorasan, and eventually, with great difficulty and at considerable risk, accompanied only by two native servants, he reached Merv. He was at First suspected by the Turkomans of being an agent of the Russians, who were then threatening an advance on Merv. For several months he consequently remained in Merv in a sort of honourable captivity, in danger of death any day, and with no prospect of release. According to his own account, O'Donovan helped mount artillery, and was made one of the ruling triumvirate. He managed to send into Persia a message, which was thence telegraphed to John Robinson, the manager of the Daily News. In this dispatch O'Donovan explained his position, and appealed to his friend: 'For God's sake get me out of this'. Robinson applied to the Foreign Office and to the Russian ambassador in London, and immediate steps were taken to effect O'Donovan's release. However, by his own efforts, combining courage with diplomacy, he extricated himself from his perilous position. On returning to London 'the man of Merv' was a celebrity, and he read a paper to the Royal Geographical Society. In 1882 he published a book on his adventures" (ODNB). [Attributes: First Edition]

        19th century scrapbook kept by Rear Admiral Henry A. Walke, United States Navy for 21 years, 1861-1882

      Various places, 1882. Hardcover. Good to Very Good. This large (9"x 14"), thick (2.5") heavily worn scrapbook with reattached covers contains 190 pages filled with clippings from a wide variety civilian newspapers and military publications, almost entirely related to the U.S. Navy. Many of the clippings have glue stains, and some show edge wear. Over 50 additional items (broadsides, a sketch, letters, pamphlets, documents, newspaper illustrations, additional news articles, brochures, etc.) are tipped-in. Laid in are * An 8" x 10" photograph of Rear Admiral Walke with a horizontal and a vertical fold and mounting scars in its four corners. * A 10" x 7" photograph of the USS Supply mounted on a 12" x 10" card with moderate edge wear. * A 6" x 4" lithograph of the USS Sacramento mounted on a 9" x 7.5" card with moderate edge wear and captioned in pencil, "U S Ship Sacramento - Captain H Walke commanding." * A 7" x 4" photograph of the USS Walke (the first of three ships named after the Admiral following his death). * A moderately foxed and edge worn engraving with cameo portraits of "Officers of Our Navy, 1861" (Commodore Stringham, Commodore DuPont, Commodore Breese, Commodore Craven, Commodore Paulding, Captain Ward, Captain Ringold, Captain Foote, and Lieutenant Brain), and * Moderately foxed and edge worn engraved portraits of Rear Admiral Charles H. Davis, Major General John Pope, and Rear Admiral David Porter. Walke entered the Navy as a midshipman in 1827, participated in the campaign against Caribbean pirates, cruised with the Pacific Squadron, protected American commerce off the west coast of South America, and served with distinction during the Mexican-American War. At the onset of the Civil War, Walke was the commander of the store-ship USS Supply stationed at Pensacola, Florida. Subsequently he commanded the gunboats USS Tyler, USS Carondelet, and USS Lafayette at the Battle of Belmont, Fort Henry, Fort Donelson, Island No. 10, and Vicksburg. During the final two years of the war, Walke commanded the screw sloop USS Sacramento hunting Confederate commerce raiders off the coast of South America. Following the war, he served as the commander of the Naval Station at Mound City, Illinois until he retired in 1871. After his retirement, Walke was appointed as a member of the United States Lighthouse Board and moved to Brooklyn where he lived until his death in 1896. Of particular interest in Walke's scrapbook are many articles that specifically address his personal service including: * A large collection of clippings relating to Walke's court-martial for disobedience while in command of the store-ship USS Supply for using personal initiative to rescue the wives and children of officers and enlisted men after Confederate forces captured the Pensaccola Naval Shipyard rather than ignoring their plight and following an earlier order to join Commodore Pendergast's squadron near Vera Cruz. * Two short clippings recognizing Walke's role as the commander of the gunboats in the Mississippi River campaign, specifically leading the fleet past the heavy fortifications of Island No. 10 and the Battle of Belmont, Missouri, * Several clippings relating to the USS Sacramento and its role in attempting to corral the CSS Stonewall, the most terrifying ironclad cruiser built during the conflict, and * A number of clippings pertaining to Walke's command of the Naval Station at Mound City, Illinois. In addition to providing specific, detailed information about Rear Admiral Walke's career, this collection also provides a unique historical record of late 19th century naval-related events deemed important by a senior officer in the U.S. Navy. As of 2007, there are no similar scrapbooks for sale in the trade and no records of holdings or auction at OCLC, ABPC, or the Rare Book Hub.

Diese von Gothofredus bearbeitete Version nennt man auch Littera Gothfrediana, sie hatte bis in das 19. Jahrhundert hinein Gültigkeit, wo sie schließlich durch die Edition des Theodor Mommsen abgelöst wurde.

        A Wonderful Ghost Story, being Mr. H's Own Narrative reprinted from "All The Year Round", with Letters hitherto unpublished of Charles Dickens to the author respecting it.

      Griffith & Farrar, London 1882 - Softcover. Small octavo. (ii) 88pp. (+ 2pp. adverts.) Original pictorial wrappers. Adverts on inside covers, front and rear. A supposedly true ghost story with a truly mysterious twist. In September 1861 Charles Dickens published a supposedly true tale of a ghostly encounter, entitled "The Portrait Painter's Story," in his magazine "All the Year Round." Shortly after its publication, Dickens was contacted by the artist Thomas Frank Heaphy (1813-1873) who claimed that not only was he the chief protagonist of the story, but that Dickens had plagiarized his own autobiographical narrative. Dickens replied promptly, assuring Heaphy that he had not knowingly copied his work, but that he had heard the story told at a gathering at a friend's house and assumed that it was just an anonymous piece of lore in public circulation. He invited Heaphy to submit the manuscript of his account, which he did, and which Dickens found to be far superior to that which he had published. He therefore arranged for it to be published in the October 5 issue of "All the Year Round." Nine years after Heaphy's death in 1873 his widow collected the then unpublished letters from Dickens to her husband, and published them, along with his original story, under the title "A Wonderful Ghost Story." This was the first separate publication of the work. This copy has been well-preserved in a contemporary (19th century) custom-made double-slipcase; the book first fits into a thin card slipcase covered in marbled paper, which in turn fits into a slipcase designed as a half-leather faux-book, with beautiful gilt-tooled leather spine with pseudo-raised bands and leather corners over marbled paper boards. Curiously the lettering on the spine reads "Dickens's Works" and "A Wonderful Story" - suggesting that it was likely in the collection of a 19th century Dickens collector. The spine of the volume is a little creased and with a few short splits, wrappers slightly rubbed, minor chipping to corner of wrappers, page-edges lightly foxed & with a touch of foxing to a few pages. Still a solid, complete & internally-clean VG + copy of a book rarely seen in its original wrappers. Slipcases a little rubbed at extremities but otherwise VG+.

        Contemporary Biography of California's Representative Men with Contributions from Distinguished Scholars and Scientists: Pacific States

      San Francisco, CA: A. L. Bancroft and Company, Publishers. Very Good+. 1882. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. B&W Illustrations; This book is a folio sized volume in a morocco leather binding with gilt lettering and decoration on the front cover and spine of the book. The leather has embossed decorations, gilt rules and five raised bands on the spine. The book is in Very Good+ condition and was likely issued without a dust jacket. The covers have some rubbing wear and beginning fraying to the spine ends and corners. The text pages are clean and bright. Illustrated throughout with full page plates with tissue-guards. The book includes biographies of 107 men who "represent" the Western US, specifically the West Coast including California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska; "to gather a compendium for preservation and reference the lives and portraits of those who have labored side by side in laying the foundations of human greatness upon the shores of the Pacific, is the object of this work. Included also, are essays by John Muir (the Glaciers and Snow Banners of California), John Le Conte (The Lakes of the Pacific Coast), and Caleb T. Fay (Alaska). " Includes a wonderful biography of Texas Ranger John C. "Jack" Hays (1817-1883) on page 62. Hays arrived in California in December 1849 and within five months he was elected sheriff (the first) of San Francisco. He retired in 1853 to begin his appointment as United States surveyor general of California (appointed by President Franklin Pierce) where he was one of the founders of the city of Oakland. " The essay by John Muir appears to be a first and possibly only appearance. .

        A fine photogravure portrait of Florence Eleanor Booth (1861-1957), wife of Bramwell Booth, Second General of The Salvation Army

      - The high-quality sepia-toned photogravure is printed on stiff card (external dimensions 217 x 255 mm, image size 139 x 190 mm). The wide margin beneath the image is inscribed and signed in ink: 'Yours, affectionately Florence E. Booth. The grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Gal[atians] VI 18'. Apart from light creases to two corner tips, the item is in fine condition. Florence Eleanor Soper became a Salvation Army convert in her late teens; in October 1882, 'shortly after her twenty-first birthday, Captain Florence Soper married Chief of the Staff Commissioner Bramwell Booth' (official Salvation Army website). They were married for forty-seven years and had seven children. Shortly before her first child turned one, Florence became involved in the Women's Social Work aspect of The Salvation Army, 'and by the time she relinquished leadership of the WSW in 1912, this spare time ministry of a single rescue home had expanded to more than forty social work centres, of varying types, spread across' England. On the death of his father, Salvation Army founder and General William Booth, in August 1912, Bramwell Booth succeeded him as the Second General, and 'as Mrs General Booth, Florence had to move on to other duties'. This charming portrait appears to date from about this time. Please use the 'Ask Bookseller a Question' link below to confirm availability and postage charges. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Third person Autograph letter to Arnold Royle (1819-1901, Queen of Great Britain)

      1882 - saying that "The Queen is thankful to hear the night was better - at least free from pain. How, exactly, did the accident happen? Are Leopd's rooms comfortable? Has he one or 2? And have you got cradle & crutches & carrying chair?", if not, "they shd. be sent for. If only he can just walk with crutches or sticks - the journey wd. be nothing.", she suggests that he should "arrive at Windsor, (London might be awkward on acct. [of] the arrival) on the 18th or 20th. Both wd. suit The Queen." she ends by instructing Royle, "Pray always write at once to Sir. Wm. when anything occurs: bad knees, fit or bleeding - He has saved the Pce.'s life so often & is so devoted to him - that he ought to know at once.", 3 sides 8vo., on black edged mourning paper, Osborne headed and monogrammed paper, 2nd February Sir William Jenner (1815-1898) English Physician, primarily remembered for having discovered the distinction between typhus and typhoid. Appointed Physician Extraordinary (1861) and Physician in Ordinary (1862) to Queen Victoria. Jenner played a large role in attempting to treat Prince Leopold for haemophilia from 1861 until his death, and it is quite likely that Jenner contributed to the cover-up of the Prince's disease. Arnold Royle was Surgeon in Ordinary to HRH Prince Leopold (George Albert, 1853-1884, 4th Son of Queen Victoria, Duke of Albany, a haemophiliac, died after an accident on 28th March in Cannes) and his personal physician from 1876 until the Prince's death from a cerebral haemorrhage in 1884, so he found himself caught between his strong-willed patient, determined to live an active life, and his equally strong-willed mother. Furthermore, the Queen evidently had somewhat limited faith in Royle and constantly wished him to defer to her favoured physician, Sir William Jenner as shown in this letter. Eventually, however, the medical skill and diplomatic aplomb with which Royle carried out his duties did gain acknowledgement from the Queen, who appointed him a Groom of the Privy Chamber in November 1884, some months after Prince Leopold's death. Within three months of this letter Prince Leopold and Princess Helena of Waldeck & Pyrmont were married at Windsor, on 27th April.
