        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1882 - 1882 Original Paperback Wisden, Tape to Spine.

      Hi, I recently purchased a set of Wisdens and the first 50 of the run were in a suitcase that had not been opened for over 50 years. This lot is an 1882 Original Paperback Wisden. It has tape to the spine. It is in Very Good Condition for the year. The tape is neatly done and holds the book together well, the covers have some marks and age toning , mainly to the bottom of the rear cover. Internally it is very nice and clean and hasn't been opened for a while. No restoration other than the tape applied many years ago. A hard year to find.

        La Sibylle Russe [cover title]

      Imprimerie de Jul Stauff (J. Fichon) 1882 [but 1881], St.-Pétersbourg - 24mo (8.25cm.); later full red morocco, bound in original peach wrappers printed within typographically decorative border; xii,72pp. Minor bumping to corners, wrappers show some light soiling and wear with general rubbing slightly effacing text without loss of meaning; a few interior leaves trimmed a bit close, but still Very Good and sound overall. Imprint on p. 72 (in Russian): "Dozvoleno Tsenzuroiu. SNB. 1- Oktiabra 1881."Original French-language edition of this Russian divination booklet first published in 1877 according to the Preface, signed "A. de K.," based on the system of an "old and famous divinatrix, who lived in Kiev many centuries ago" (our translation). The "sibylle russe" is composed of 36 cards (not included here, though it is unclear if this was to be issued with the cards), each described in detail in the text, each representing four sections of the same drawing (i.e. prophecy), among these an old sorceress (Your opinions will not be appreciated!), a nest (An inconsequential person will cause you harm!), and a ladder (Great success, many honors!). Forms part of the prevalent 19th-century Russian craze for fortune-telling, this title unrecorded though described perfectly by Faith Wigzell in her Reading Russian Fortunes: Print Culture, Gender and Divination in Russia from 1765 (1998): "Some of these books.were very short, commonly consisting of instructions and interpretive key to a single fortune-telling method," ".their contents attributed to illustrious sages, alchemists, sorcerers and seers" (p. 11). The present work, though cheaply published in the format thus issued for the peasant classes, is unusual in that here it has been adapted into French, "la langue universelle" of the Russian aristocratic classes during the reign of Peter the Great. We forgo calling this a French translation, as the Russian proverbs have been replaced with French commonplace idioms.Apparently unrecorded: not in OCLC, COPAC, or KVK. [Attributes: First Edition]

        THE REVOLT OF MAN

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1882.. Octavo, [i-vi] [1] 2-358 [1]-4: ads, original reddish orange decorated pebble-grain cloth, front panel stamped in black, spine panel stamped in black and gold, rear panel ruled in blind, top edge untrimmed, yellow coated endpapers. First edition. In a future England, as dominated by women as Victorian England was by men, the men finally revolt. "An amusing, well-written book ... a pleasant relief from the long-winded novels that Besant wrote with James Rice. The question has arisen whether THE REVOLT OF MAN is not a satire against Victorian male chauvinism, but the indications are that Besant meant the work literally." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 191. The novel was first published anonymously and languished until noticed by the SATURDAY REVIEW, after which the book quickly went through additional printings totaling 9000 copies. "When I say that the advanced woman has never ceased to abuse the book, and the author, its success will be understood." - Besant, Autobiography (1902), p. 212 (quoted in Wolff, XIX Century Fiction). Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 071. Clarke, Tale of the Future (1978), p. 9. Lewis, Utopian Literature, p. 19. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 12.

        The Orchid Album,

      London: B. S. Williams at the Victoria and Paradise Nurseries,, 1882–97. comprising coloured figures and descriptions of new, rare, and beautiful orchidaceous plants. The coloured figures by John Nugent Fitch. 11 volumes quarto. Original brown fine diagonal-rib cloth, gilt lettered spines and front covers, spines and front covers with floriate panelling in blind & black (back covers stamped in blind), untrimmed, endpapers yellow coated or with a pale grey or brown floriate pattern. 527 fine hand-coloured lithograph or chromolithograph plates (with tissue guards) by John Nugent Fitch (one double-numbered folding plate in volume I), some with tinted backgrounds; chromolithograph plate (Cypripedium Charlesworthii) from another work inserted in volume X. Bookseller's ticket of David Bryce & Son, Glasgow. Rear joint of volume I split at foot but sound, scattered foxing to letterpress, plates clean and fresh. A very good set. First edition of this magnificent work, one of the great orchid books of the nineteenth century; bibliographies call for 528 plates but overlook the fact that the only folding plate (which appears in volume I) is double-numbered as 9-10 - this is a complete set and includes the four-page obituary for Benjamin Samuel Williams in volume IX. The Orchid Album was published at the height of the "Orchidelirium" which had been building in Britain for some decades, but which seized the imaginations of late Victorian horticulturists in the same way that the tulip craze inflamed the minds of collectors in Golden Age Holland. Anna Pavord writes "Some of the grander Victorian growers, such as the Duke of Devonshire at Chatsworth in Derbyshire and the Duke of Northumberland at Syon House in Middlesex, employed their own collectors, but orchid fanciers like John Day acquired their best treasures at auction. Nurserymen such as James Veitch, Conrad Loddiges and Benjamin Samuel Williams of the Victoria and Paradise Nurseries in Upper Holloway, regularly sent consignments of orchids to be auctioned by Messrs Stevens of King St, Covent Garden. It was in their sale room that, after an epic battle with a fellow enthusiast, Sir Trevor Lawrence, a contemporary of Day's, acquired the one single plant of Aerides lawrenciae imported by Frederick Sander from the Philippines" (in review of A Very Victorian Passion: The Orchid Paintings of John Day, Independent, 29 May 2004). The stunning plates are the work of John Nugent Fitch (1840–1927), nephew of Walter Hood Fitch: "Fitch's work was more flamboyant than that of such predecessors as Ehret, Redouté, or the Bauer brothers, combining botanical accuracy with a flair for page design. In Britain and Europe he had little competition, being rivalled only by the Frenchman Alfred Riocreux" (ODNB). A particularly attractive set, in the bright original cloth bindings.

        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.

        THE FIXED PERIOD: A NOVEL

      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.

        An autograph letter (in French) signed by Saint-Saëns, to Edmond Hippeau, editor of 'La Renaissance musicale: Revue hebdomadaire de critique, d'esthétique et d'histoire', severing his connection with the publication. The catalyst for the split appears to have been Hippeau's biting lampoon of Gounod in the issue of 29 October 1882. Saint-Saëns had hitherto been listed prominently on the covers as an official collaborator of the magazine; his name is absent from the issue of 13 November. His relationship with Hippeau, however amicable, was already strained. 'The clearly pro-Wagner inclination of the editor quickly created a violent polemic between Hippeau and Saint-Saëns, founder of the Société nationale de musique. Saint-Saëns harshly critic

      - Quarto, one and a half pages (on one leaf), 7 November 1882. Light horizontal and vertical creases where folded for posting; small piece of clear tape to a short split to one end of the crease across the middle (on the blank bottom half of the second page, well clear of any text); an appealing item in excellent condition. The lengthy letter pulls no punches. After some initial expressions of friendship, Saint-Saëns leaves us in no doubt about the strength of his attitude and sentiments. A broad translation of the second part follows: 'Standing back to avoid being hurt is not in my character. I must be forthright, and no finessing of details can save my name, at the head of a journal like a banner, from being associated with it in the eyes of the public. The stance of the journal not being in accordance with my ideas, I cannot allow my name to remain attached to it. My decision, I have told you and I repeat it again, is irrevocable. I do not know what obligations you are under, and I am not anxious to know. I only regret, in every respect, that you have failed to understand the advantage you might have gained in publishing a paper that is truly French, as well as truly modern. Now it is too late; you have equivocated too long, and if, against all probability, you wished to take this path, it could be only with a new journal and a new organisation. . . I do not know if you know me well enough to understand what it has cost me to act in this way. I hope you do, however, and will not cease to count on your friendship, and assure you that you may always count on mine in everything that does not do damage to my artistic conscience. Affectionately yours, C. Saint-Saens'. Please use the 'Ask Bookseller a Question' link below to confirm availability and postage charges. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        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.

(527-565) geschaffenen Kodifikation des römischen Rechts, bearbeitet durch den bedeutenden, französischen Juristen Dionysius Gothofredus (1549-1622). Seit dem 13. Jhdt. kennt man für das große Gesetzeswerk der Spätantike die Bezeichnung Corpus iuris civilis. Ende des 16. Jahrhunderts faßte der Rechtsgelehrte Gothofredus die gesamten textkritischen Arbeiten zusammen und publizierte eine eigene Ausgabe mit Kommentaren und exegetischen Noten. 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. Die Bearbeitung G.s wurde mehr als fünfzigmal neu aufgelegt, darunter, alleine zu dessen Lebzeiten, dreimal in verschiedenen Ausgaben (Die erste erschien mit einem kurzen Kommentar 1583, die kommentarlose zweite 1587 und die dritte samt Glossen 1589). Hier vorliegend der dritte Nachdruck der kommentarlosen zweiten Ausgabe.
