        MR. SCARBOROUGH'S FAMILY

      1883. In Three Volumes. London: Chatto & Windus, 1883. 32 pp Vol I ads dated March 1883. Original blue-green cloth decorated in reddish-brown. First Edition of this novel about a man who valued his estate above his honor, and who accordingly tried to have his cake and eat it too... "He was luxurious and self-indulgent, and altogether indifferent to the opinion of those around him" (from the novel).~John Scarborough, owner of a large landed property in Hertfordshire, resented the restrictions of the law of entail [predetermined succession of estate]. He accordingly devised a scheme whereby he was able by a double marriage, one before and one after the birth of his eldest son, to declare him illegitimate or not, as the future might make desirable... [Gerould]~It is not hard to imagine the subterfuge and treachery this scheme creates between father, elder son and younger son.~MR. SCARBOROUGH'S FAMILY first appeared serially in "All The Year Round," running weekly from May 1882 to June 1883, during which span (December 1882) Trollope died; this three-decker was published posthumously in May 1883. As with most Victorian three-decker novels, it was priced at 31s. 6d. but was offered at a steep discount to the lending libraries, so that most people could not afford to buy it but would rather have to rent it.~This is a bright, near-fine set. There is, on the lower front cover of each volume, very faint evidence of the prior presence of library labels (like most copies. Otherwise the only flaws of note are a small scar on the Vol I spine, and the presence throughout the text of numerous ink-stamps of a Harrogate bookseller (most likely the original "lending library"). That said, the bindings are clean, the gilt is bright, and the volumes are quite free of wear -- the volumes have NOT been re-cased or re-backed, and the original endpapers remain intact. In all, rather remarkable condition for a novel that was produced for lending libraries to be rented out fortnightly and "read to death." Sadleir (Trollope) 66; Wolff did not have a copy.

        Brogliaccio manoscritto contenente annotazioni autografe di Oneto su Puerto Deseado (4 pp.) e tre elenchi di materiale da imbarcare sul piroscafo Bahia comandato dal Capitano Ferro (8 pp.)

      imprenta de J. Peuser 1883-4, Buenos Aires - Quaderno manoscritto a penna e matita in 8, pp. (30) in parte scritte e in parte bb. con gora centrale non deturpante. Indicazione ms. all'ultima p.: quaderno delle sue casse porto Dseato (sic). Importante e raro autografo di questo Capitano ed esploratore al servizio del governo argentino. Di origini chiavaresi, dopo aver viaggiato al comando di un brigantino per i mari dell'estremo oriente, fu al servizio tra il 1875 e il 1885 del governo argentino nell'attivita' dell'eslporazione e dello sfruttamento delle sue terre australi. Nel 1883, su sua proposta, venne organizzata una missione esplorativa nell'area di Porto Deseado che duro' tra l'11 aprile e il 14 novembre. In questo periodo vennero effettuate tutte le misurazioni e i rilievi finalizzati allo stabilimento di una colonia, fatto che avvenne l'anno successivo. QuestoÂimportantissimo brogliaccio risale proprio agli ultimi giorni di questa missione, come testimoniano le date apposte a margine delle 4Âliste dei materiali caricati alla volta di Buenos Aires sul piroscafo Bahia Blanca comandato dal Capitano Ferro (11, 12, 13 e 14 novembre 1883). Di grande interesse l'esame delle liste dei materiali, che vanno da materiale geodeico e da rilevamento a tende, letti e coperte, tende, arnesi da lavoro ecc. Le pagine iniziali, dedicate ad una sommaria descrizione della localita', riflettono quanto pubblicato nella relazione a stampa edita nel 1884 e qui acclusa. Nel manoscritto poi, compaiono ampie annotazioni a matita di altra mano e che potrebbero attribuirdi a tal Luis Marzano, uomo al servizio dello stesso Oneto. Occore anche annotare che Antonio Oneto si reco' l'anno successivo, con 24 famiglie di coloni,ÂÂalÂfine diÂfondare la citta'. La raggiunse il 15 luglio 1884 ma il 21 giugno 1885 mori' senza veder completata la sua opera. Attualmente, ogni 15 luglio, la citta' rende omaggio alla memoria dell'Oneto con cortei alla sua tomba ed al suo monumento. C. De Negri, L'attivita' geografica di Antonio Oneto in: Annali di ricerche e studi di geografia. Marzo 1955. ITA

        THE UNTOWARD EFFECTS OF DRUGS: A PHARMACOLOGICAL AND CLINICAL MANUAL

      1883. LEWIN, Dr. Louis. THE UNTOWARD EFFECTS OF DRUGS, A PHARMACOLOGICAL AND CLINICAL MANUAL. Translated from the German by J.J. Mulheron. Detroit, Michigan: George S. Davis, 1883. Tall octavo, original embossed brown cloth, ornately stamped in gilt; 216 pages plus six-page index. Second Edition, Revised & Enlarged. Dr. Louis Lewin [1850-1929] was a German author of more than 200 major publications on the subject of pharmacology, including 12 books. He was the first researcher to study peyote with the Native Americans and the first to publish a monograph on kava. He directed a private laboratory in Berlin and he was considered the leading toxicologist in Germany. He published the first methodical analysis of the Peyote cactus, a variant of which was named Anhalonium lewinii in his honor. In Berlin, a street and a nearby underground station are also named in his honor. One of Lewin's most enduring tasks was to create a system of classification of psychoactive drugs and plants on their pharmacologic action. His original categories were Inebriantia (inebriants: alcohol or ether); Exitantia (stimulants like Kaht or ampehtamines); Euphorica (euphoriants and narcotics, like heroin); Hypnotica (tranquilizers, such as Kava); Phantastica (hallucinogens or entheogens, like peyote or Ayahuasca). A very rare book and in terric condition. Very Good or better condition (quite nice; minor wear covers with contents clean & tight; gilt-stamping is very bright & unrubbed). $750.00.

        Historia de Mexico

Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 7") bound in quarter calf with marbled boards and gilt lettering to spine. (Palau 4576) Second edition. Lucas Ignacio Alamán y Escalada Alamán studied at the Real Colegio de Minas de la Nueva España, in the Viceroyalty of New Spain (colonial México). He frequently traveled on his credentials as a scientist and diplomat, becoming one of the most educated men in Mexico. At the outset of the war for Mexican independence, in September 1810, Alamán is said to have been an eyewitness of the massacre of Spanish families in his home city of Guanajuato. This experience may have influenced his lifelong devotion to conservative politics and his nostalgia for monarchic rule for Mexico. For most of the 1840s, he devoted himself primarily to writing the history of Mexico from the perspective of a conservative. His three-volume work Disertaciones sobre la Historia de la Republica mexicana (Mexico, 1844¿1849) and his five-volume Historia de México, desde los primeros movimientos que prepararon su independencia en el año de 1808, hasta la época presente (Mexico, 1849¿1852), stand as the major intellectual productions of the Conservative Party in nineteenth-century Mexico, and the only histories produced by a Mexican author of his era to view the Spanish presence in his country favorably. Condition: Early owner's embossed stamps to title pages, moderate wear, some age toning, corners bumped and rubbed, book plates removed from front pastedowns, some chipping to edges else a good to very good set.

        HINDU LOYALTY: A PRESENTATION OF THE VIEWS AND OPINIONS OF THE SANSKRIT AUTHORITIES ON THE SUBJECT OF LOYALTY. [IN CONNECTION WITH THE MOVEMENT OF THE "NATIONAL ANTHEM FOR INDIA"]

      Printed by I. C. Bose & Co. and Published by the Author, Calcutta 1883 - A Work, in a Decorative Calcutta Binding, thatSupports "God Save the Queen" as India's National Anthem. 216 x 159 mm (8 1/2 x 6 1/4"). 4 p.l. (the first a blank), 24, 29-32, 25-28 (bound out of order), 33-100 pp. FIRST EDITION. PUBLISHER'S ORIGINAL CALCUTTA BINDING OF DARK GREEN PEBBLED MOROCCO, RICHLY GILT, front cover with a densely gilt frame enclosing a gilt-rolled panel with central vignette of Shiva, (the rear cover with an arabesque at center, but otherwise identical), gilt-rolled raised bands, spine compartments heavily gilt with stippling and vegetal forms, gilt-hatched turn-ins, all edges gilt. Text bordered in red. Slight loss of gilt to vignette, a hint of dulling to spine, but still a fine copy, the gilt very bright everywhere else, and the text remarkably clean and fresh. Something infrequently seen in the West, this is an engaging Calcutta binding, here covering a fine copy of Tagore's essay that supports the adoption of the British national anthem, "God Save the Queen," as the national anthem of India. A member of the cultural elite, our author came from one of the wealthiest and most influential families in Calcutta (poet Rabindranath Tagore was from another branch of the family). His publications were aimed at British and European orientalists both in India and in Europe as well as Calcutta's Bengali intelligentsia. His argument here is that loyalty to royalty has always been a constant in Hindu culture, and so "God Save the Queen" is an appropriate candidate for national anthem of India, the jewel in Queen Victoria's crown. Indian nationalism and the desire for independence did not spread until the post-World War I era, when its Hindu leaders would have thought this book heretical. They nevertheless would have admired this volume as an object: Brahma (God the Creator) is referred to as Hiranyagarbha ("the one born of gold"), and Brahma is obviously in the details of this glittery binding. It will always be pleasant to hold a beautiful object finished with the essence of the Creator, even if the song it sings is a sacrilege to certain modern (in this case, Indian) ears.

        NOTES On The PRACTICE Of PHYSIC [spine label title]

      (n. p.), (n. d.). Ca. late 18th C. / very early 19th C.. Period brown quarter leather binding with marbled paper boards, with professionally restored front joint. Average binding wear. Toning to paper consistent with aging. 1883 presentation inscription to Melrose (?) or Ambrose Bowden 1883. A Good item.. [2 (Index to volume)], 418 pp. Over 410 pages with mss notes. ~ 20 lines per page, 5 words per line [with space on each page for marginalia, of which occasionally is found]. With marginalia, ~ 43000 words. 7-1/4" x 5-3/4" Volume with ownership signature of one John Walker, believed to be Dr John Walker who "undertook a conventional course of study, spending three years at Guy's Hospital, with a brief visit to Paris in 1797. He reportedly spent time in Edinburgh in 1799-1800, although he did not matriculate at the university. Walker graduated MD from Leiden University in 1799, and later published his thesis on the function of the heart and blood vessels. He became a licentiate of the Royal College of Physicians, London, in 1812, and was for a long time member of the Physical Society of Guy's Hospital." [ODNB]. The mss volume contanins several mentions of a Dr. Gregory, hence one presumes Walker was, perhaps, a student of Dr Gregory. Dr. John Gregory (1724 - 1773, also John Gregorie), was an 18th C. Scottish physician, medical writer & moralist. Gregory also published Elements of the Practice of Physic (1772), which investigated the nosology of disease and the diseases of children. Elements of the volume: the author mentions a certain disease prevalent in "man of war and slave ships", as well as Dr.'s Cullen and Sydenham [amongst others]. Page 1 begins with intermittent fevers.

Fernando Garrido Tortosa, Cartagena, 1821-1883. Revolucionario español, uno de los principales propagandistas del socialismo en el siglo XIX. Atraído por las ideas socialistas que bullían en el París de la revolución de 1848, fundó el periódico, La Organización del Trabajo, defensor de las doctrinas de Fourier, suprimido por Narváez. Comenzó una actividad incansable de propagador de las nuevas ideas, organizando periódicos de vida efímera y publicando folletos de propaganda de estilo claro y vehemente. Por su escrito Defensa del socialismo estuvo preso en Madrid bastante tiempo, saliendo de la prisión para el destierro, estableciéndose en Londres. Volvió a España en 1854, donde su defensa de Espartero le valió de nuevo la cárcel, pronto absuelto gracias a Castelar. Publicó entonces el periódico Las Barricadas, del que aparecieron 28 números, y un opúsculo en el que defendía la República Federal, de la que vino a ser uno de sus primeros propagandistas, que le valió nuevo destierro, esta vez en Lisboa. Vuelto a Barcelona se le atribuyó una proclama contra Isabel II, por lo que tuvo que ganar de nuevo la frontera, volviendo a Londres, y permaneciendo en el extranjero hasta la revolución de septiembre. En ese periodo de gran actividad publicó El socialismo y la democracia ante sus adversarios (con prólogo de Mazzini), La España contemporánea, Historia de las persecuciones políticas y religiosas, Historia de las asociaciones obreras, Historia de los crímenes del despotismo y La humanidad y sus progresos, libro condenado por el Obispo de Barcelona y que le valió la excomunión eclesiástica. A su regreso publicó El último Borbón, y dos años después, Historia de las clases trabajadoras. Cada día más radicalmente socialista, inició la publicación en Madrid del periódico La revolución social, que le llevó de nuevo a la cárcel y al refugio en Lisboa. Diputado por Cádiz en las Cortes de 1869, por Sevilla en las de 1872, e intendente general de Filipinas en 1873, al proclamarse la República. Exiliado con posterioridad en Lisboa y París, pudo volver a España, donde todavía publicó varios libros. Muere Córdoba en 1883. CCPB000197141. Palau. 100248. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter, signed, to Mrs. Ord, the widow of General E.O.C. Ord

      Havana, 1883. 6 pp., in ink, on letterhead of the Consulate-General of the United States. Slight toning, overall, near fine. In brown cloth chemise. 6 pp., in ink, on letterhead of the Consulate-General of the United States. The Death of General Ord. Adam Badeau (1831-1895), author of several books* and a former Civil War officer who served under General Grant in the Wilderness and Appomatox campaigns, was serving as the Consul-General in Havana when the distinguished Union General, E.O.C. Ord (Oct. 18, 1818 - July 22, 1883), died there of the yellow fever he had contracted while working on the Mexican Southern Railroad - owned, ironically, by Ulysses S. Grant and Jay Gould, In this moving letter of condolence to Ord's widow. Badeau conveys the details of Ord's final hours in Havana, and ends with this fine tribute to General Ord: "I need not say, dear Mrs. Ord, how my heart bleeds for you, struck down as you are by this sudden and irreparable loss. I can only offer you my sympathy, for consolation would be a mockery. But it must be a mournful satisfaction to you to know that here in a strange land his name and services to his own country were recognized, not only by us who had known him personally, and me who had served by his side, and known his military and individual virtues, his patriotism, his distinction, his amiability, his probity, his honor; but by strangers and citizens here. Everyone, official and unofficial expressed the greatest regard and regret for this gallant soldier dying on his way home, and the greatest commiseration for his widowed orphans deprived just when they were expecting his return, of their protector and guardian and dearest friend." *THE VAGABOND, a collection of essays (New York, 1859) MILITARY HISTORY OF ULYSSES S. GRANT (3 vols., 1867-'81) ; and CONSPIRACY: A CUBAN ROMANCE (1885) ; ARISTOCRACY IN ENGLAND (1886); and GRANT IN PEACE (1886).
