        A Treatise on a Section of the Strata, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, to the mountain of Cross Fell, in Cumberland; with remarks on mineral veins in general. Also, tables of the strata, in Yorkshire, Derbyshire, &c. To which is added, a treatise on the discovery, the opening, and the working of lead mines; with the dressing and smelting of lead ores. Second edition, greatly enlarged

      Second edition, greatly enlarged from the first which contained only 156 pages. One of the first English books to illustrate geological strata by the use of a section. ?The convenient method of showing graphically a stratigraphical succession by a geological column was already in use at the end of the eighteenth century Westgarth Forster?s bookis notable for a very long column, some 51?2 feet long altogether, which is shown in portions and comprising a total thickness of strata of ?1345 yd. 0 ft., 10 in.? ? (Challinor, p. 93).The work is divided into three parts: on the strata of coal, on mineral veins in general, and on the discovery of mines, which includes lists of mines, lists of smelting houses, heights of principal mountains, etc.?Though the book was written when the science of geology was in its initial stage; when even people of education recognised no distinction between one kind of rock and another; when such terms as stratified and unstratified, aqueous and igneous, seldom appeared in print, and were scarcely ever heard; when the great works of Buckland, De la Beche, Phillips, Lyell, Murchison, Sedgwick, and other geologists had not yet appeared, the classification of the strata which it contains is the one still in use? (preface to the third edition of 1883).Hoover 318 (also the second edition).8vo, pp. xii, x, (11)-422, xvi (Appendix), (18) index and list of subscribers, 11 engraved plates numbered 3-10 and 12-14 (including 10 folding and 4 hand-coloured), folding letterpress table.

        Amphoren (IV)

      Berlin: Ernst Wasmuth, 1883. Colour-printed lithograph by Ernst Wasmuth. Very good condition. From "Griechische Keramik", Genick's superb work on Greek ceramics. The revival of interest in Greek ceramics was led by the travellers and cogniscenti who visited Greece and southern Italy in the mid to late-18th century. The Greek vase as an art form was first brought to the attention of an appreciative wider audience with the publication of a number of well-illustrated works on the collections of these dilletants. The most notable of this group was Sir William Hamilton (1730-1803), whose collection catalogue was published over a number of years starting in 1769. However, these early pioneers, working with a relatively small number of examples and using primitive techniques, were only able to begin to piece together the intricate story of this unique art form. It was not until a century later that art historians felt that they were understood the full scope and history of ancient Greek ceramics in general and the superb work produced using the red-figure technique in particular. The red-figure technique first came into use in about 530 B.C. and was the dominant type by about 500 B.C. With this technique, images are traced in outline and the background filled in with black glaze. Details are then drawn in by the painter with a black or brownish glaze. Red figure vases continued to be produced in Athens until about 320 B.C. Genick was one of the leading authorities of his day on the red-figure vases: an architect by training, he had a passionate love for and deep understanding of this great Athenian pottery. His study, brought to realization by Wasmuth's superb chromolithographs, illustrates for the first time these masterpieces of the potter's life-size art.

        THE WONDERUL CITY OF TOKIO OR FURTHER ADVENTURES OF THE JEWETT FAMILY AND THEIR FRIEND OTO NAMBO

      Boston & New York: Lee and Shepard / Charles T. Dillingham, 1883. Large, thick octavo. Half gilt calf and marbled boards, pictorial panels of original binding bound in. Frontis and illustrations. A few incidents of marginal spotting, otherwise a very good copy. First edition. A superb pre-publication association copy, inscribed by the author to American Orientalist and modernist literary influence, Ernest Fenollosa, utilizing Fenollosa's Japanese honorific: "To Mast. Kano Fenollosa In this wonderful city of Tokio from his affec. friend Edward Greey New York Oct. 23 1882 [sic]." After serving with the British military during the Second Opium War, Greey (1835-1888) traveled to Japan in the diplomatic service and immersed himself in the country's language, culture and art. In 1868, he settled in New York, opening a shop specializing in Japanese art and antiquities, and subsidizing that income as a writer. In addition to formal works such as the present, which afford a valuable insight into aspects of Japanese history and culture from a Westerner's point of view, Greey was a prolific contributor to the pulp press and boy's papers, often under pseudonyms. He took his own life in 1888 under mysterious circumstances. As a somewhat older contemporary of Fenollosa, he would no doubt have ample reason and opportunity to make his acquaintance, either in the U.S. or during travels back to Japan on business. Beyond his considerable importance as one of the preeminent Orientalists of the last quarter of the 19th century, Fenollosa left an indelible influence on Ezra Pound and W.B. Yeats, who worked mightily to edit his unpublished manuscripts and notes and disseminate his ideas.

        LIFE AMONG THE PIUTES: Their Wrongs and Claims.

      Cupples, Upham & Co, Boston 1883 - Original blue cloth with gilt spine title on spine and black ornaments to spine and front cover, small octavo (5 x 7.5 inches), 268pp. THIS COPY SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR on front free endpaper: "With Love and Truth. Princess Sarah Winnemucca, Feb. 4th, 1884". An important work, described in the Oxford Companion to Women's Writing in the United States as "The first known work published in English by a Native American woman." In the late 1840s Sarah Winnemucca (1844-1891) witnessed her tribe's (Northern Paiutes near Humboldt Lake Nevada) first encounter with white European settlers. She was the first of her tribe to be educated in Western fashion - at a convent school in San Jose, California. She later worked as an interpreter for the US military and Bureau of Indian Affairs. Most of her adult life was devoted to futile attempts to gain civil rights and official recognition for her people. This, her only book, is a poignant memoir, history, and plea for justice. Spine slightly darkened, moderate fraying to spine ends, splash stains to front cover, inner hinges mended, still a presentable copy [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Aut Caesar, Aut Nihil.

      London Longmans, green and Co 1883. 3 Volumes. 8vo. 309pp., 312pp., 359pp. Bound in original publisher's mustard yellow glazed cloth, strikingly titled and decorated in black to spines and front boards (double headed Russian Imperial eagle, obviously). Minor shelfwear, a little rubbing here and there and light, inoffensive bumping to spine ends. Titles a little rubbed to vols II and III, nothing terribly significant; a clean, sharp and striking set of books, very good indeed. Internally clean, glazed yellow endpapers (where would late Victorian triple deckers be without glazed yellow endpapers. Ink ownership to pastedown of Vol I, ink stamp ("Lorinda B. Borstal" whom research has disclosed as either a 480 cargo barque based in Australia, or the lady after whom the barque was named, who according to passenger manifests frequently travelled in it, which for all I know is a persistent perk of having a cargo ship named after you. As yet no one has named a ship after me, I consider it only a matter of time) to front flyleaf of all three volumes. A very good, strong and attractive set indeed. A previous cataloguer, whose handwriting is absolutely that of the formidable and highly respected George Locke, has written "Russia. Nihilists and a Huge Explosion." on the verso of the front flyleaf of Vol I. Either his superior knowledge has identified this as a previously unknown sub-title to the work, or it's a brief run down of the plot. Basically Russian nihilists run amok, bombs go off and the authoress speaks sympathetically about the plight of Russian jews, which is unusual as one of her three other works has been considered more than atad anti semitic. Regardless, it is rather beautifully written ("her girl could not have a better watch dog than the honest, blunt young Englishman, to whom, she instinctively felt, every girl was as yet as sacred as his own sisters. As a matter of fact, Hudson had no sisters, being that risky prioduct; an only child."), and seeing as the authoress (a London girl who married into diplomatic nobility) spent time travelling the more politically active parts of Russia, it probably isn't too far astray on the period detail, dealing as it does with assassination attempts upon the Imperial family. A stirring read. Scarce and attractive, which is how I'd like to be described.

A very fine image from 'the best animal painter who ever lived' (Sir Edwin Landseer). The Bobcat, also known as Bay Lynx, ranges from southern Canada to northern Mexico. Named for their distinctive short, "bobbed" tails, they are approximately twice the size of a domestic cat. One of the most striking images from Elliot's magnificent work A Monograph of the Felidae or Family of Cats (London: 1878-1883) which described and pictured all the species of cats then known, and is still the most beautiful work on the subject. The work was prompted by a perceived need to resolve the confusion that had built up around the naming of the various species of Felidae , particularly amongst the smaller cats. Wolf worked from specimens provided by Elliot, who visited all the great museums and zoological societies on both sides of the Atlantic. This allowed Elliot to make a comparative study of skeletons and skins and reduce the number of apparently separate species by nearly a third. Joseph Wolf served an apprenticeship with a Koblentz firm of lithographers, and spent some time working in Leiden and Darmstadt, before moving to London in 1848. The quality of his images was recognized immediately and he was rarely without work, producing natural history pictures of the highest quality for the Zoological Society of London, Henry Dresser, George Gray and John Gould, amongst many others. Wolf's work for Elliot marks the high-point of his illustrative work and his images of the cats are considered by many to be his masterpieces. Cf. Nissen ZBI 1279; cf. Wood p.332.

        Autograph letter signed in full to Monsieur Miral.

      4 pp. of a bifolium. Small octavo. Dated Monday evening, December 5 [between 1883 and 1891]. In black ink on cream paper with black borders. In French (with translation). Having returned to Paris, Delibes is anxious for news of the second run of his opera, Lakmé. Because his correspondent's letter was delivered to the wrong address, he has had to seek information elsewhere. Unfortunately another audience member has told him that the tenor and "basse chantante" have weak voices. Delibes suggests they replace the latter with a certain "Monsieur Schmidt" in order to increase ticket sales. In January, he and his correspondent will discuss his opera, Le Roi l'a dit, which premiered at the Opéra-Comique on May 24, 1873. "Unfortunately a more recent letter...tells me that our tenor is always weak, as well as the 'basse chantante' [i.e. high lyric bass], and that the whole weight of the performance rests on Madame [Alice?] Verheyden, who alone has some success in the work. (I add that these reports do not come from her husband!)" Slightly soiled and foxed; creased at folds. . Lakmé is considered to be Delibes's masterpiece. It offers more than just a fine vehicle for a star soprano; the two principal male characters, Nilakantha and Gérald, are firmly drawn, and the music is melodic, picturesque and theatrically strong. The opera was first performed at the Opéra-Comique (Salle Favart) in Paris on April 14, 1883. Delibes's correspondent, Miral, was perhaps the director of the Théâtre Municipal de Nancy. If this is the case, it is quite likely that the production mentioned in this letter took place there.

"Das Werk des Unterzeichneten 'Der Schweizer Holzstil' ist aus dem Verlag des Herrn Karl Köhler in Darmstadt in den des Herrn Caesar Schmidt in Zürich käuflich übergegangen. Die wachsende Theilnahme des architectonischen Publikums an diesem Unternehmen hat einen zweiten Abdruck nöthig gemacht und die Hoffnung erweckt, dass eine Erweiterung der ersten Auflage durch eine zweite Serie bei vielen Fachgenossen eine gleich günstige Aufnahme fonden möchte. Es sind nämlich einzelne Kantone der Schweiz, besonders diejenigen, wo der Steinbau vorherrscht, in der ersten Auflage wenig oder gar nicht vertreten, während bezüglich der Verbindung vom Holz- und Stein-Bau in der Schweiz manches Mustergültige sich noch erhalten hat . Fernerhin sind nun 15 Jahre seit Erscheinen der ersten Serie verflossen, und glaubt der Verfasser manches in derselben unberücksichtigt gelassen zu haben, was er in dieser zweiten Serie zu ergänzen wünscht." (Einleitung zu Serie II).- Die Tafeln zeigen u.a.: Manneberger Mühle, Haus der Gebr. Schmidt in Bülisacker, Haus des Friedensrichters Huber in Meiringen, Schirmensee bei Rapperschwyl, das alte Wirtshaus in Baar, Haus von J.

        Felis Tigrina [Margay]

      [London: Daniel Giraud Elliot for the subscribers, 1883. Hand-coloured lithograph by J.Smit after Joseph Wolf, printed by M. & N.Hanhart. A very fine image from 'the best animal painter who ever lived' (Sir Edwin Landseer). A Central and South American cat, ranging from Mexico to Argentina, the Margay is similar in coloring and marking to the Ocelot, but is smaller. Elliott mis-identified this cat as Felis Tigrina, another South American cat. It is sometimes called the Tree Ocelot, they are agile in the forest canopy and sometimes spend their lives there. One of the most striking images from Elliot's magnificent work A Monograph of the Felidae or Family of Cats (London: 1878-1883) which described and pictured all the species of cats then known, and is still the most beautiful work on the subject. The work was prompted by a perceived need to resolve the confusion that had built up around the naming of the various species of Felidae , particularly amongst the smaller cats. Wolf worked from specimens provided by Elliot, who visited all the great museums and zoological societies on both sides of the Atlantic. This allowed Elliot to make a comparative study of skeletons and skins and reduce the number of apparently separate species by nearly a third.
