Expertly bound to style in half red morocco and period red cloth, spine gilt with raised bandsLively lithographs by one of the best known of the artists living and working in the Levant in the mid-19th century: one of 500 numbered copies.The son of Count Gio Francois Preziosi of Malta, Amadeo initially studied the law before turning to painting. After studying under Giuseppe Hyzler, Perziosi subsequently completed his art education at the Paris Academy of Fine Arts. He moved to Constantinople in 1842, fell in love with the city, and was able to make a living painting the places and people that surrounded him. It is noted in the Atabey catalogue that "Preziosi was well-known .... His studio is mentioned in Murray's guidebooks for 1854 and 1871. By that time he had become an institution in the city... He produced views of the city, and genre and costume drawings" ( The Ottoman World p.535).His paintings sold well to both the affluent local and the Grand Tourist, and his reputation was such that also served as a court painter to Sultan Abdul Hamid II.Preziosi visited Cairo in 1862 and the colourful views here depict street scenes and local inhabitants in the city and along the Nile. First published in 1862, the present re-issue, limited to 500 numbered copies, was published under the direction of the Encyclopédie des Arts Décoratifs de L'Orient.Colas 2425; Blackmer 1352.

Twain writes about his home and his muse-the great Mississippi. "As a dwelling place for civilized man it is by far the first upon our globe." (preface) In this largely autobiographical narrative, Twain gives us a vivid account of his youth on the great river. A brilliant firsthand account of the steamboat age, the science of river piloting, and the life of the river itself from the point of view of those who made their living navigating it. A truly wonderful book and a valued piece of the American legacy.

        Conduites Montantes [Rising Pipes]. Album No. 2

      An elegant and unusual manuscript of information graphics "drafted and submitted" by the head of the Bureau of Rising Gas Pipes of the Parisian Gas Lighting and Heating Company in 1883. The Parisian Gas Lighting and Heating Company (also known as the Paris Gas Company) was founded in 1855 and "quickly developed into one of France's greatest industrial enterprises, an exemplar of the new industrial capitalism that was beginning to transform the French economy. The PGC supplied at least half the coal gas consumed in France through the 1870s and became the city's single largest employer of clerical and factory labor" (Berlanstein, Big Business & Industrial Conflict in France). The term "conduites montantes," or rising pipes, refers to pipes that enter buildings from the street and rise up within the walls to distribute gas throughout a structure. In this manuscript, the bureau charts the increase in these types of utility connections, an obvious indication of the growth in demand for natural gas heating and lighting. The manuscript comprises a title page, contents leaf, and 14 large, precise hand-drawn charts that chronicle the company's activities in this regard. The first diagram, for example, is a pie chart showing the number of rising pipes fitted, beginning in the the period 1859-1863 and continuing yearly to 1882, with the number growing from 273 between 1859 and 1863, to 1,430 in 1882. Several types of chart are included, including bar and line graphs, tables, a fan chart, and circular charts. Two of the most attractive graphics are simplified maps of Paris that use various sizes of black circle to indicate the number of rising pipes and gas subscribers in each arrondissement. The manuscript is titled "Vol. 2", and it is unclear what the first volume contained or whether any others were created. A wonderful example of 19th-century information graphics and a significant historical record of Paris and its modernisation. Paris: Compagnie Parisienne D'Eclairage et de Chauffage par le Gaz, October, 1883. Folio. Original black half morocco, spine gilt in compartments, title to upper board gilt, marbled sides and endpapers. Manuscript comprised of title, contents leaf, and 14 double-page or folding charts and diagrams. Binding a little rubbed with some worn spots at the extremities. Contents fresh and clean save for occasional toning or staining along the extreme edges of the leaves. Excellent condition.

First edition, later issue, with McKay imprint, has photo of Whitman and butterfly facing p. 122, terminal leaf with ad for Leaves of Grass, 374 pp., 8vo, mustard cloth gilt. VG copy with light soil, front inner hinge slightly strained, light rubbing to spine ends, pages a bit tanned, old owner's inscription in green ink (dated 1941) on flyleaf; INSCRIBED ON FLYLEAF BY WHITMAN: 'Joseph Beck from his friend Walt Whitman, Nov. 9 '89' -- looks good to us, but provenance is Ian Richardson, a sometime dealer in books from Denver, not an ABAA member, so no guarantees, but it feels right. Some prior owner has made a notation that Joseph Beck was a laborer in Camden, but we have no way of confirming that.

        Three extraordinarily detailed manuscript volumes on the technology of silk weaving: title in Vol. I: "Ecole Municipale de Tissage et de Broderie de Lyon. Cours de Thèorie 1908-1909. Emile Poulat"; Vol. II: "École Municipale de Tissage de Lyon. Cours de Théorie 1939-1940. Yves Poulat"; and Vol. III: "École Municipale de Tissage de Lyon. Cours de Théorie 1940-1941. Yves Poulat." 285 samples of different fabrics (one seems to be missing) & 179 intricately hand-colored paper diagrams pasted-in. Hundreds of extremely detailed & finely executed diagrams & illus. in the text. Nine sheets of diagrams & illus. bound-in. Unpaginated but in excess of 1000 pages. Three vols. Thick folio (350 x 260 mm.), half-sheep & cloth sides ca. 1941, written throughout on graph paper. Lyons: 1908-41

      This is the most complex, extensive, and richly illustrated series of manuscripts on the techniques of the manufacture of silk and other textiles I have encountered (and over the last 39 years I have had many). There are 285 fabric samples tipped-in along with 179 hand-colored paper diagrams. The text is richly illustrated as well with highly and minutely detailed colored diagrams throughout. Lyons has been a textile and silk center for many centuries; in the 19th century, a large proportion of the city's population was engaged in one aspect of the textile trade or another. The École Municipale de Tissage et de Broderie was established in 1883 to offer organized instruction and training for silk workers in both the theory of weaving and the actual operation and maintenance of the machines. The Poulats, father and son, were instructors at the school and these are their highly detailed manuscript guides to weaving, kept in manuscript to preserve their secret proprietary information. What is so extraordinary about these manuscripts are the detailed instructions given for the seemingly infinite variety of structures of cloth and its ornamentation by weaving has been worked out by the Poulats on squared paper and pasted in as well as depicted in the main body of the texts. We name but a few of the fabrics depicted and analyzed: satins, sateens, brocades, backed and reversible fabrics, compound cloths, piled fabrics including chenille and velveteen, and crossed weaving. The first volume, by Emile Poulat (and numbered on the spine "III") begins with a detailed account of the art of sericulture from incubation to the cocoons and their preparation for reeling. The processing of washing and reeling is shown in the fine full-page drawing. There are several other illustrations of machinery used to prepare the silk. Wild silks are also considered. There are hundreds of diagrams of increasing complexity depicting the warp and weft designs to achieve different effects in the silk fabrics. Part II contains descriptions and diagrams along with actual silk fabric samples pasted-in for many kinds of fabrics: taffetas, satins, velours, "pékin," etc., etc. For each of the hundreds of fabrics, there is a detailed account of the materials required, techniques of weaving, etc. The final section describes the weaving machinery employed in Lyon, with numerous fine close-up drawings of various sections of the looms. There are sections on dyeing and bleaching. Vols. II (numbered "I") and III (numbered "II") again show further - nearly endless -variations in textile design and the technical requirements, with many fabric samples pasted-in. In fine condition.

        Life on the Mississippi

      Boston: James R. Osgood, 1883 FIRST EDITION, FIRST STATE, in the original deluxe binding. The first state has the illustration of Twain's head and urn in flames at page 441 and the "St. Louis" caption on p. 443. Twain's wife Livy had objected that the illustration, which came at the end of a chapter on cremation, was "morbid." In the second state the illustration is lacking. This is a very appealing copy of Twain's autobiographical narrative of his days as a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River. BAL 3411. Original three-quarter calf gilt, deluxe publisher's binding. Minimal wear. A fine copy.

        La Poupée . exemplaire unique.

      Imprimerie de "l'Illustration",, Paris 1883 - First edition: A children's story written for the author's daughter and her doll: 'Exemplaire unique', but actually one of two recorded copies (the other in the Bibliothèque nationale). Pailleron was a prolific and successful literary figure in Paris, as co-director of the Revue des Deux mondes and author of many plays. The Bibliothèque nationale copy contains an inscription permitting the recipient (presumably the printer or editor) to print one more copy only (presumably this one). Several later editions followed, but we can find no more examples of the first. Young Marie-Louise Pailleron appears (with her brother) as the co-subject in John Singer Sargent's first dual portrait, painted in 1880 (she later recorded that she made no less than 83 sittings for it). Large quarto (320 × 242 mm), pp. 11, [3], engraved title vignette and illustrations. Paper slightly cockled throughout, title lightly duststained. Slightly later limp calf, gilt. Rubbed.
