First edition. Illustrated with thirty-two 'Artotypes," a four-figure plate of chromolithographs, and eighteen engravings. The extraordinary account of Commander Gorringe's expedition to transport the Egyptian Obelisk that now stands in New York's Central Park. A career officer in the US Navy, Gorringe was sent in 1876 in command of the "USS Gettysburg" on special service to the Mediterranean, where he remained until 1878, all the while contributing letters to the New York NATION. He came to fame in 1880 by his work in dismounting, packing, transporting and erecting the Egyptian obelisk ("Cleopatra's Needle") that had been offered to the US by the Egyptian Khedive Ismail in 1879 at the opening of the Suez Canal. On October 16, 1879, with the assistance of 100 Arabs, he rigged the obelisk into the hold of the steamer Dessoug. It arrived in New York on July 20, 1880 and it took 5 months to rig the Obelisk from the water to Central Park, where it arrived on January 22, 1881. The work also incorporates archaeological observations on and a census of Egyptian obelisks, along with accounts of the transfer of the London, Paris and Vatican Obelisks. Many of the photographs are credited to Edward Bierstadt, or to Hannoun & Bierstadt.

A very good copy. First US edition of the book noted for coining the phrase in the title. Following a series of celebrated expeditions to Gabon, in which he provided the first external account of gorillas and of the Pygmy peoples, French-American explorer Du Chaillu (1835-1903) travelled extensively across Scandinavia between 1871 and 1878. His account pays special attention to the antiquities of the prehistoric and Viking ages; it was followed in 1889 by a specialised study, The Viking Age. Owing to his exploits in Central Africa some have believed Du Chaillu to have been Edgar Rice Burroughs's inspiration for Tarzan. The Land of the Midnight Sun was originally published in the United Kingdom the previous year; there were several further editions and a German translation.

Both volumes have the booksellers ticket on the rear pastedown: (Brown & Gross Booksellers Hartford CT). [TOGETHER WITH] TWO VOLUMES.

TIRAGE UNIQUE A 100 EXEMPLAIRES POUR ISIDORE LISEUX ET SES AMIS. De la futution - De la pédication - De l'irrumation - De la masturbation - Des cunnilinges - Des tribades - Du coït avec les bêtes - Des postures spintriennes - Toutes les postures érotiques sont décrites dans ce livre encyclopédique traitant exclusivement de la physiologie de l'amour physique. Friedrich Karl Forberg, philosophe et philologue allemand, né à Meuselwitz, dans le duché de Saxe-Altenbourg le 30 août 1770 et mort à Hildburghausen le 1er janvier 1848 a laissé son nom attaché à deux écrits : Sur le développement du concept de religion et De Figuris Veneris. Forberg avait produit un travail de philologue et de lexicographe, distribuant en huit parties les renseignements, les détails, les traits de satire qu’en trente années de lectures il avait su découvrir non seulement chez les poètes grecs et latins, mais aussi chez les historiens, les moralistes, les lexicographes anciens, et même chez quelques Pères de l'Église, comme Tertullien ou saint Grégoire de Nazianze. Dans par cette démarche, il peut être comparé au « fous littéraires » décrit par André Blavier. Les auteurs universitaires se montraient alors fort discrets sur de tels sujets : la futution, la pédication, l’irrumation, la masturbation, le cunnilingus, les tribades, les différentes formes de coït et autres positions sexuelles — tels sont les sujets minutieusement examinés par Forberg du seul point de vue de l’histoire littéraire classique ou néo-classique, en adjoignant aux écrivains de l’Antiquité un petit nombre de modernes dont Nicolas Chorier. Le traducteur Alcide Bonneau souligna que « dans chacun des chapitres, il a même trouvé à faire des subdivisions, comme le sujet le requérait, à noter des particularités, des individualités, et le contraste entre cet appareil scientifique et les facétieuses matières soumises aux lois rigoureuses de la déduction et de la démonstration, n’est pas ce qu’il y a de moins plaisant. Un grave savant d’outre-Rhin était peut-être seul capable d’avoir l’idée de classer ainsi par catégories, groupes, espèces, variétés, genres et sous-genres toutes les sortes connues de voluptés naturelles et extra-naturelles, d’après les auteurs les plus dignes de foi. » Forberg intervient en son nom dans de rares passages, tenant à marquer qu’il n’est, ici ou là, pas « homme à chercher de la gloriole en dévoilant les résultats d’expériences personnelles. » Au seuil de son chapitre sur la pédication, il précise qu’il est, quant à lui, « tout à fait étranger aux pratiques de ce genre. » Il laisse à ses lecteurs, aux « gens experts », le soin de décider s’il est vrai que « quiconque une fois a irrumé, ne peut plus s’en passer ». Le critique Pascal Pia remarqua en 1959 « qu’on ferait injure à Forberg en le considérant comme un Cosinus littéraire qui n’aurait su que par ouï-dire comment l’esprit vient aux filles. À la manière dont il parle de son ignorance des cas peu ordinaires, ou de “l’honnêteté des mentules de Cobourg”, nous ne saurions l’imaginer autrement que surveillant d’un regard en coin l’effet que ses propos font sur nous ».

      London Trubner 1882 - First edition. 8vo., 108 pp., original reddish-brown blind-stamped cloth gilt, spine faded, covers soiled, a very good copy. Thomas Evans Bell (1825–1887) was an English Indian army officer and writer. In 1841 he went to Madras in the East India Company's service. Bell was strongly critical of the East India Company, and its impact on peasant proprietorship in India. After the Indian Rebellion of 1857, Bell lost his position in Nagpur, for complaining over the head of his immediate superior about the treatment of the Ranis of the Nagpur kingdom. In Madras in the early 1860s, he was secretary of the Madras Literary Society, and edited its Madras Journal in 1861. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Ampio carteggio costituito da otto lettere autografe firmate dell'autore de Le veglie di Neri (1882) risalenti all'arco cronologico 1889 _ 1894, inviate da Empoli e Dianella (Vinci) su questioni private e letterarie. Ne riportiamo alcuni passi a titolo puramente esemplificativo. ìL'osservazione che feci sulla poesia del Berchet fu soltanto a riguardo della sua elevatezza e della difficoltà per l'intelligenza dei ragazzi , ma del resto mi piace moltissimo l'idea di spargere qua e là, quattro o sei dei più facili ed ispirati canti patriottici che ricordino i momenti più tristi e più gloriosi del nostro risorgimento. Se non se ne gioveranno troppo e subito i nostri ragazzi, portato questo libro e questi canti per le case del popolo e letti nelle veglie d'inverno è certo che faranno sempre un gran bene se di quando in quando potranno prendere il posto delle insulse leggende e degli orribili fatti avvenuti nella bella città di Terracina, che sono il solo pascolo letterario dato ai nostri lavoratori e specialmente a quelli delle campagne". ìSoltanto mi rincresce (e questa non è modestia ostentata ma schietta verità) mi rincresce di non sentirmi competente per giudicare certi periodi di storia. Ne ho letta molta della storia, posso anzi dire d'aver letto la storia particolareggiata di tutti i popoli, ma la mia memoria è così refrattaria che in fatto di date, di persone, di luoghi e di minutaglia d'avvenimenti io mi sento il più sublime ignorante di questo mondo". Per un totale di ventotto pagine in-8. Bell'insieme.

        Laguna Indian translation of McGufeyf's [sic] New First Eclectic Reader. Translated and printed by John Menaul

      Laguna, New Mexico: [Laguna Mission Press], 1882. Complete set of 7 unbound, unopened and uncut gatherings, approx. 7¼" x 4¾", pp. [4], iv, [6]-12, [2 blank], 13-28, [2 blank], 29-44, [2 blank], 45-60, [2 blank], 61-76, [2 blank], 77-82 [i.e. 84], [7 blank]; consisting of Directions to the Book Binder, title page, introduction, and the full text of McGuffey's Reader in Laguna translation; an Ayer Linguistic duplicate, with an Ayer accession label on the verso of the last leaf, and a Newberry release stamp above it, and also on the Directions to the Book Binder leaf. McGuffey's 'Reader' was used in the instruction of Indian children of Laguna Pueblo, New Mexico, by Rev. John Menaul, a Presbyterian missionary in that village for many years, commencing 1876. He obtained some copies of the 'Reader' and interleaved them with his translation into Keres (the language of Laguna) using his own little printing press. Menaul was New Mexico's premier publisher of bilingual works. He got his first taste of printing in Africa and put his experience to use in New Mexico beginning in1877. Following four years of work with Navajos at Fort Defiance, Arizona, he assumed a post at Laguna Pueblo, fifty miles west of Albuquerque. There he launched what has since become known as the Laguna Mission Press. Recognizing that a key element of bringing Christianity to the Pueblo people was a common language, Menaul produced educational material and religious tracts in English and Keres, the Laguna tongue. After leaving Laguna Pueblo in 1889, he settled in Albuquerque and continued to print Spanish language religious works" (from Lasting Impressions: The Private Presses of New Mexico, 2005). Not in Graff; not in Streeter (who had at least one other Laguna Mission imprint).

        Die Aetiologie der Tuberculose. (Nach einem in der physiologischen Gesellschaft zu Berlin am 24. März gehaltenen Vortrag) (pp.221-230).

      - BKW, 19. - Berlin, August Hirschwald, 1882, 4°, VII, (1), 800 pp., Halbledereinband der Zeit. First Edition, First Appearance in Print of Koch's epochal paper on which he announced March 24 his discovery of the tubercle bacillus, this paper also contains the first statement of "Koch's postulates". The greatest and best known of all of Robert Koch's labors . For this work, in the face of the teaching of the day that tuberculosis was the result of nutritional disturbances, Koch took his place as the greatest bacteriologist of his day and one of the greatest physicians of all time. By the discovery of the actual cause of tuberculosis, real scientific progress was possible toward controlling this widespread affliction. For his discovery of the bacillus of tuberculosis Robert Koch received the Nobel Prize in 1905. " Medical Classic II, No.8, pp.719 - - Robert Koch (1843-1910) studierte zuerst in Göttingen Mathematik und Naturwissenschaften, ging aber schon nach zwei Semestern zum medizinischen Studium über, in dem namentlich der Anatom HENLE, der Physiologe MEISSNER und der Kliniker HASSE besonderen Einfluß auf ihn übten. 1865 - noch als Student - Assistent am Pathologischen Museum, wurde er 1866 promoviert und ging dann für ein Halbjahr nach Berlin. In demselben Jahr erhielt er eine Stelle an der Idiotenanstalt Langenhagen bei Hannover, ließ sich aber 1868 als Arzt in den märkischen Städtchen Niemegk, 1869 in Rakwitz (Posen) nieder. Er nahm am Deutsch-Französischen Feldzug teil und bereitete sich, nach Hause zurückgekehrt, für das Physikatsexamen vor. Nach der bestandenen Prüfung wurde er zum Kreisphysikus des Kreises Bomst in Wollstein ernannt, wo er neben Privat- und Amtspraxis unter primitivsten Verhältnissen jene Untersuchungen begann, die ihn zu unsterblichen Ruhm führen sollten. Hier konnte er nicht nur die bereits von POLLENDER, BRAUELL und DAVAINE im Blute Milzbrandkranker entdeckten Stäbchen feststellen, sondern auch ihre Dauerform beobachten und damit die Aetiologie des Milzbrandes in ihren Grundlagen mit Sicherheit feststellen. Nachdem er wenige Monate eine Stelle als Medizinalbeamter bekleidet hatte, aber wieder nach Wollstein zurückgekehrt war, wurde er 1880 als Regierungsrat und ordentliches Mitglied des Kais. Gesundheitsamtes nach Berlin berufen. 1891 übernahm er unter Aufgabe seiner akademischen Tätigkeit die Leitung des für ihn gegründeten Instituts für Infektionskrankheiten.-cf.Fischer, p.784f. - 1881 "begann Koch seine grundlegenden Arbeiten über die Tuberkulose, die in der Entdeckung des lang gesuchten Tuberkuloseerregers ihre Krönung fanden. Hierüber berichtete er in der denkwürdigen Sitzung der Berliner physiologischen Gesellschaft am 24.März 1882 (.) Zunächst schilderte Koch den mikroskopischen Nachweis des Tuberkelbazillus als charakteristisches, kleines, unbewegliches Stäbchen, das sich im tuberkulösen Material konstant finden läßt, allerdings nur durch bestimmte Färbeverfahren.(.) - Es folgt die Schilderung der Reinkultur, die Erfüllung der zweiten Forderung des Erregernachweises(.). - Mit der Klärung der dritten Frage, "ob die isolierten Bazillen, wenn sie dem Thierkörper wieder einverleibt werden, den Krankheitsprozeß der Tuberkulose auch wieder zu erzeugen vermögen", konnte Koch das letzte Glied in der Beweiskette einfügen und zusammenfassend sagen: " Alle diese Versuche zusammengenommen berechtigen zu dem Ausspruch, daß die in den tuberkulösen Substanzen vorkommenden Bazillen nicht nur Begleiter des tuberkulösen Prozesses, sondern auch die Ursache desselben sind, und daß wir in den Bazillen das eigentlich tuberkulöse Virus vor uns haben". - Nach dem Vortrag war, wie Loeffler berichtet, "nicht ein einziger im Saal, der nicht, wenn auch wider Willen, von der Richtigkeit dessen, was er gehört und gesehen, überzeugt gewesen wäre und gefühlt hatte, daß er einer epochemachenden, die ganze Medizin erschütternden Verkündigung von ungeheuren Konsequenzen beigewohnt hätte, und diese .

      Original publisher's cloth. xiv, 240pp. index, [3] works to be consulted on the land question [1] ads WORKS BY THE SAME AUTHOR. 1st Edition/1st printing. PRESENTATION COPY, FROM WALLACE TO A FARMER AND AGRICULTURAL WRITER BASED IN ESSEX.As a dealer based in the Highlands it is very interesting to read Wallace's thoughts on the Clan system and how it transformed, following its collapse in the 18th century, into a system where Clan Chiefs morphed into landlords "who soon claimed and exercised all those absolute and despotic powers which the law of England bestowed upon them". The subject of land tenure is of massive relevance to this part of the world and, indeed, the year of the book's publishing (1882) was a time of great upheaval in the Highlands in terms of the "land-question" which saw agitation (rooted in the Isle of Skye) that led ultimately to the overturning of many of the "despotic powers" Wallace refers to. As a dealer based in the Isle of Skye it is also very pleasing to read Wallace's glowing description of the "sterling qualities and high character" of tenantry in this island, with particular reference to their military service.

[and] Hymns Ancient and Modern. London: George E. Eyre and W. Spottiswoode [&] William Clowes and Sons, Limited, [ca. 1882]. Two sixteenmo volumes (5 5/8 x 3 7/16 inches; 143 x 87 mm.). Delicately bound ca. 1882 by Birdsall of Northampton (stamp-signed in gilt on lower front turn-ins). Each volume in a full 'vellucent' binding over beveled boards. Covers decoratively bordered in hand-painted pink and blue surrounded by gilt lines, each enclosing a decorative panel of thirty-nine hand-painted red and white flowers stamped in outline in gilt, and thirty-eight hand-painted small brown dots. Spines decoratively bordered in hand-painted blue surrounded by gilt lines. Decoratively titled in gilt within another gilt border "Common Prayer" [&] "Hymns, Ancient & Modern", gilt board-edges and gilt ruled turn-ins surrounding another hand-painted pink border. Decorative tan and gold silk-paper paste-downs and end-leaves, all edges gilt. Some very minor rubbing to the hand-painted blue border on the front cover of "Hymns". Both volumes housed in the original silk-lined buff morocco slipcase, shaped at edges and ruled in gilt. A remarkable survival. Neat ink note "M.C.S.D. April 6th. 1882" on both front blanks.Vellucent bindings are most often ascribed to Chivers of Bath - this is the first example by Birdsall of Northampton that we have ever seen.The roots of Birdsall of Northampton "stretch back to the early eighteenth century but it was in 1792 that John Lacy's Northampton bindery was acquired by William Birdsall, continuing in his family until 1961...In Birdsall's heyday, Gerring (Notes on Bookbinding, 1899) reported a staff of 250 engaged in making ladies handbags, fancy boxes, and stationary; as well as all types of bookbinding. The firm seemed always ready to experiment and careful records and samples were kept by Richard Birdsall, great-great-nephew of the founder, until he died in 1909...The firm's collection of over 3,000 finishing tools passed to the University of Toronto" (Maggs, Bookbinding in the British Isles II, #262, and #321).

        Large collection of 85 books and magazines by and about Jean Lorrain.

      58 early books (from 1882 to 1957) and 20 more recent ones, including 4 translations (into Dutch and English). Plus 2 old books that mention Lorrain sidedishwise, and 5 fin de siècle magazines.* Jean Lorrain (1855-1906), a symbolist writer turned decadentistic, presenting himself as a 'dandy of the mire', catering gothic novelettes, but also chronicles of contemporary life, full of slurs and slander to the sensation-hungry reader. A great stylist, a master of masks who tampered with drugs, dying as a syphilitic and drug addict. His doting mother lived on for another 20 years, providing material to his Eckermann, the author Georges Normandy who was able to enhance Lorrains reputation as an author in the 20s and 30s. Never quite forgotten, there was a Lorrain revival in the carefree Sixties and the studious Eighties, fostering many publications also included in this collection. This is an arsenal of 44 different titles with 14 reprints and differring duplicates, comprising 5 books with a lengthy dedication by Jean Lorrain, 3 with inserted letters by him and 2 with autograph poems; his first three titles, nice original illustrated wrappers, some fantastically illustrated books and several books and other publications about Lorrain. This collection, measuring two shelves, is a grandiose addition for any Lorrain specialist or library.
