        The Horse in Motion As Shown by Instantaneous Photography with a Study on Animal Mechanics Founded on Anatomy and the Revelations of the Camera in Which is Demonstrated the Theory of Quadrupedal Locomotion

      Boston: James R. Osgood. Good with no dust jacket; Frontispiece and title page professionally . repaired at margins, gift inscription on front flyleaf, cup ring and white . paint stains on title page, pages toned.. 1882. Hardcover. Nicely rebound in brown cloth with gilt-stamped leather spine labels. Top edges gilt. 127 pages of text and 107 plates, including five heliotypes and 9 color plates illustrating equine anatomy. Preface by Leland Stanford. Photo of book before rebinding laid in. An important book in both the history of photography and equine literature with a fascinating back story about how it was researched and written. Railroad baron, California Governor, and horse racing mogul Leland Stanford (he also bankrolled the founding of Stanford University) had a wager with some of his horse racing buddies about whether all four hooves left the ground at a point during a horse's trot. Stanford hired antiquarian bookseller-turned-photographer Eadweard Muybridge to provide photographic evidence of this split-second event, which he did in 1872 with an elaborate set-up of multiple cameras and other equipment. In 1874, Muybridge shot and killed his wife's lover and was embroiled in a dramatic court battle (bankrolled by Stanford) in which he pleaded insanity based on severe head injuries received from an earlier stagecoach accident, but which the jury decided was deserving of an acquittal as a justifiable homicide. Muybridge continued his equine photography projects for his benefactor until the present volume was published, in which Muybridge's photographs were used as a basis for most of the illustrations, but which only briefly mentions his name in the preface and appendix. Muybridge later published his landmark and comprehensive Animal Locomotion series in eleven volumes (Parr and Badger, vol. 1, p. 52). This 1887 opus contained 781 plates of animals and humans in various actions and contributed greatly to scientific and artistic knowledge of anatomy and movement. ; Folio 13" - 23" tall .

The Mahdi destroyed Hicks's entire force in the desert at El Obeid and in January 1885 captured Khartoum from the famous English hero, Major-General Charles Gordon. Earlier, Oâ??Donovan had made his "adventurous and famously dangerous" journey to Merv in 1879,and was detained there by the Turkomans. Two years later he witnessed the bloody Russian capture of Geog-Tepe which extinguished Turcoman independence. (Wikipedia). .

        Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There.

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1882. Octavo. Original white paper-covered boards, covers lettered and decorated in gilt, pale blue coated endpapers, all edges gilt. Housed in a custom cream slipcase. Frontispiece with tissue-guard, 49 illustrations by John Tenniel. Two newspaper clippings tipped-in to rear free blank. Spine darkened, boards gently bowed, board edges rubbed, small patch of abrasion to rear board, covers finger-marked, a few faint marks to contents. Second edition, presentation copy in the deluxe presentation binding, inscribed by the author on the half-title: "Mary Frances Fuller, with the affectionate regards of her old friend the Author. Oct. 1882." Mary "Minnie" Francis Fuller (née Drury; 1859-1935) became one of Dodgson's child-friends, and a subject for his photographs and recipient of his poems. She first met him in a railway carriage with two of her sisters and governess, on their way from Southwold after their summer holidays in August 1869. Mary's daughter Audrey later recounted the meeting: "they saw a clergyman on the platform, passing and re-passing the carriage window; and, just as my children would have done, they hoped he wouldn't get in. He did get in and amused them all the way to London with puzzles, paper toys and stories Â… The friendship continued all through my mother's married life, and I remember him coming from the time I was quite a small child to stay with us" (Wakeling, p. 256). This style of white binding for presentation was Dodgson's preferred choice for his closest friends. His preference for a white binding for presentation dates back to the first edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, when he originally ordered 50 copies for presentation in red cloth and a single copy in white vellum. In March 1876 he requested a lavish array of colours, including "20 bindings in white vellum and gold", for The Hunting of the Snark. It would have been extremely difficult and expensive for a commercial publisher like Macmillan to produce so many gilt-stamped bindings in real vellum. Instead, they settled on this style of boards covered with a textured white cloth (variously described by auctioneers as imitation morocco, vellum, or parchment). Dodgson showed his approval of the result in a letter to Maud Standen in 1877: "I have had them [copies of The Hunting of the Snark] bound in various coloured cloths ... e.g. light blue, dark blue, light green, dark green, scarlet (to match Alice), and, what is perhaps prettiest of all, white, i.e. a sort of imitation vellum, which looks beautiful with the gold" (quoted in Williams, p. 20). Dodgson liked to have a supply of his books in white bindings ready for presentation as occasion demanded.

A Very Good Minus copy. Scarce in any condition. With thanks to Charles Wood for the following: "Founded in 1813, the firm grew and grew and in 1866 came under the direction of David Wolfe Bruce, son of George Bruce. 'In 1878 [David] conceived the idea of incorporating his friend Theodore Low De Vinne's book The Invention of Printing, as an addenda to his type catalogue and it was bound in as an additional 168 leaves. The idea was repeated in 1882 and David always termed this catalogue the crowning work of his career.' --Annnenberg. This catalogue is thus perhaps the single most desirable specimen of the prolific Bruce firm (except, of course, for the first, which is unobtainable). See Annenberg, Type foundries of America and their catalogues, pp. 79--83. Romaine, GATC, p. 274-'One of the best research records located.'" With thanks to Collinge & Clark for the following: "Annenberg records: 'this type foundry is another example of the tail wagging the dog; stereotyping was prior to type founding'. David & George Bruce turned full-time to type founding and stereotyping in 1816, when they issued their first specimen of 11 leaves. George Bruce is credited with being the first in America to attempt standardization of sizes in the manufacture of type, he died in 1865 and the age of 85 - still cutting punches. David Wolfe Bruce, his son, took over management in 1866. He incorporated Theodore Low De Vinne's book The Invention of Printing, into the specimens of 1878 and 1882. In 1892 the firm refused to join the American Type Founders Company, but were purchased by it in 1900.". Presumed First Edition. Buckram. Very Good Minus/No Jacket. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

        De L'Origine Des Éspéces Par Selection Naturelle / ou / DES LOIS DE TRANSFORMATION DES ÊTRES ORGANISÉS / Traduction de Mme. Clemence Royer / Avec Preface et Notes du Traducteur

      Paris: C. Marpon et E. Flammarion / éditeurs, [1882]. Fourth Edition / "Quatrième Edition" [French] reissued with expanded Preface.. Wrappers. Good +/Custom Case. 8vo (7 1/4" x ~5"), green wrappers, French text ncorporates authorized corrections by the Author [Charles Darwin] & additional notes by the translator, Mlle. Clémence-Auguste Royer; L-page Préface [containing the Advertissement Aux Lecteurs Préface De La Quatrième Edition, Préface De La Première Édition, & Notice Historique] + 650-pages Exceedingly Rare & fragile French popular wrappered edition of Charles Darwin's, Origin of Species (1859). This wrappered "populaire" and "quatrième édition" [fourth edition] of The Origin was based on the third French translation by Mlle. Royer. It was authorized by Darwin and incorporated the author's latest changes in his English imprints. Because French paper has always been problematic: tending to become brittle, chip, and disintegrate, this edition in wrappers is breathtakingly rare. The small paper label of "M. Riquier, percepteur honoraire / S440 . . . PONT-de-METZ" is pasted down inoffensively on lower portion of the half-title, below which there is his stamped name, "M. Riquirer." This stereotyped edition incorporates the latest Additions by the Author [Charles Darwin] and Notes by the learned translator, Mammoiselle Royer, a self-described "disciple de Lamar[c]k." Surprisingly, she refers in her Preface to this fourth edition to Darwin's death [in 1882] just as this edition was about to be published, and to twenty-three years having passed since the publication of his first edition in [1859}. This volume is thus a reissue of the Fourth French edition in wrappered format for popular consumption, which was to have appeared in 1882...coincidentally, the year in which her esteemed and communicative Charles Darwin had just died. This edition is not noted by R. B. Freeman, The Works of Charles Darwin / An Annotated Bibliographical Handlist, Second Edition (1977). Freeman identifies the Fourth French edition of L'Origin as #658: "[ ] Paris, C. Marpon & E Flammarion. I [not our Roman numeral "L" {i.e., 50-pages} expanded Preface] + 650 pp." Though Freeman notes #669 a two-volume Flammarion edition with 675 pp. that appeared in 1918 that was also translated by Mlle. Royer, he has no mention of this rarity; nor does the Fifth edition have any date, but closely resembles #658, the Fourth edition. We can, therefore, date this popular "paperback" [reissue of the fourth edition] to 1882, though it bears no date on its title page. The learned translator also refers to "la Théorie d'évolution par Sélection Naturelle" as "Darwinism," and to other works she had written: "sur Lamarck, sa vie, ses travaux et ses doctrines {Revue de Philosophie positive, 1869-70), and her article Darwinism du Dictionnaire des sciences médicales." The front wrapper had two small holes in the middle of the title page which was also loose. These minor defects have been carefully restored and strengthened by Scott Kellar, our gifted bookbinder. (The front wrapper retains some discoloration and a rough fringe, while the paper backstrip has losses to its periphery.) Scott has also constructed a protective brown cloth-covered, sturdy clamshell case for this precious volume.
