        Parrots in captivity... with notes on several species by the Hon. Rev. F.G.Dutton. London. George Belle and Sons (1883)-1884-87.

Ottimo non comune esemplare.BrM(NH), 730 (possiede solo i primi due voll.). Casey Wood p. 368. Fine Bird Books (ediz. ital.) p. 103. Nissen IVB, 393. Zimmer I, p. 274.Trattazione di 81 specie di Pappagalli (inclusi i Cacatua, le varie specie di Ara e i bellissimi Parrocchetti) con particolare attenzione al loro comportamento in cattività. Di ogni specie viene fornito il nome scientifico, la relativa sinonimia e il nome in varie lingue. Per alcune delle specie trattate vi sono delle notazioni di F. G. Dutton. I primi due volumi vennero pubbliati in diciotto parti: le prime sei nel 1883 e le rimanenti nel 1884, il vol. terzo apparve intero nel 1887. Un quarto volume, in due parti, mai completato e con nove tavole apparve nel 1888, ma è assai raro da trovare, al punto che Zimmer lo cita senza averlo mai visto e il Fine Bird Books non fa menzione del quarto volume. Dal punto di vista iconografico è una delle migliori opere prodotte nella seconda metà dell'ottocento sui pappagalli.

        Prosciugamento del lago Fucino. Descrizione storica e tecnica. (Testo) italiano, francese, inglese. -

      Roma, Propaganda Fide, 1883.3 volumi (2 di testo, 1 di illustrazioni). In-folio massimo. Magnifiche legature originali in marocchino color prugna, piatti con filetti oro e borchie dorate con impresso il monogramma AT (Alessandro Torlonia), piatti superiori con titolo impresso in oro, merletti interni, tagli dorati. 53 tavole in cromolitografia, per lo più a colori, 8 ripiegate: un'ampia veduta del lago su 3 fogli, carte geografiche, piante, progetti, spaccati, macchinari, e riproduzioni di 13 diplomi (altri 2 su 6 carte sono rilegati in fine). (2 bianche), XII, 383, (2 bianche) pp.; (2 bianche), (4), 282, (2), CXXX, (4), (2 bianche) pp.; splendido esemplare, quasi allo stato di nuovo; lievi fioriture sulle illustrazioni. L'opera è così suddivisa: volume I: Intorno alla formazione del bacino del lago Fucino (pp. 1-33), dei primi abitanti dell'Italia Centrale (pp. 35-122), storia del prosciugamento del lago Fucino e della costruzione dell'emissario di Claudio, da Giulio Cesare fino all'imperatore Adriano (pp. 123-257), fino all'anno 1852 (pp. 259-381); volume II: dal 1852 fino al suo compimento (pp. 1-262), seguono le note, le spiegazioni delle tavole, gli indici, e il volume III con le illustrazioni. Stupenda e rarissima edizione fuori commercio del più dettagliato resoconto su questa colossale impresa, scritto dai due ingegneri a cui vennero affidati i lavori. Il prosciugamento del lago del Fucino, il lago più grande del centro Italia, fu un'opera così complessa ed onerosa, da poter essere annoverata tra le più significative dell?Ottocento (all?epoca si diceva: «o i Torlonia prosciugano il Fucino, oppure il Fucino prosciuga i Torlonia»!). Treccani definisce questo trattato ?fondamentale?, mentre Lozzi, che evidentemente non l'aveva mai visto, lo cita vagamente alla nota del n. 2058. ICCU ne elenca solo tre esemplari, tutti in biblioteche romane. L?opera è sconosciuta alle nostre altre bibliografie, incluso Pansa, Abruzzi, che sul prosciugamento cita oltre 20 pubblicazioni. La particolare legatura, la cura nella veste tipografica e la carta a mano di Fabriano con filigrana che riproduce a piena pagina lo stemma dei Torlonia entro la scritta Asciugamento del lago del Fucino eseguito da Alessandro Torlonia, dimostrano il notevole costo di tiratura. E' evidente che questa lussuosa pubblicazione venne stampata in un numero assai limitato di esemplari, destinati in omaggio a pochissime personalità dell'epoca. An extremely rare and impressive publication, privately printed in a very limited number of copies on special hand-made paper to celebrate the drainage of Lake Fucino, the largest in central Italy. With 53 chromolithograph plates (8 folding): a large view, maps, plans, sections, details, etc. Original dark red morocco, gilt title on front covers, gilt edges. An excellent copy; some mild foxing to plates.

        Beautiful and Curious Birds of the World

      Boston: published by the author for the subscribers, 1883. Folio. (26 1/2 x 20 1/2 inches). Letterpress title (verso blank), preface leaf (verso blank), dedication to Joel Asaph Allen (verso blank), contents leaf (verso blank), 20 text leaves. 20 lithographed plates (18 hand-colored) after Joseph Smit and others, printed by M. & N. Hanhart or Forbes & Co. of Boston. Contemporary black morocco gilt, gilt turn-ins, silk doublures and linings (rebacked, a few small repairs to edges). Cloth folding box. "A very rare book" (Bennett), limited to 200 copies, with beautiful plates on a grand scale including some of Smit's finest work. "In writing the present work I have striven to bring together some of the wonderful examples of the ornithological world, and to illustrate them in such a manner that others besides naturalists may become acquainted with the beautiful forms of bird life which inhabit our globe" (Preface). Given Cory's stated aim it is unsurprising that he has concentrated on the most spectacular bird family of all: the Birds of Paradise and their relatives the Lyre Birds and the Spotted Bower bird. Twelve of the twenty plates are from this group. The other eight include two of the best known extinct bird species: the Dodo and the Great Auk (also included amongst the extinct species is the Labrador Duck). The remaining depict many unusual species, with images of the Kiwi, the Ruff, the California Condor, the Black-headed Plover, and the Sacred Ibis.

        Sjöbodar. »Motiv från Vaxholm».

      Blyertsteckning. Signerad »C.?Flodman». Titeln återgår på en egenhändig notering i nedre marginalen. 16,2?×?25 cm. Svag missfärgning längs bladets marginaler från äldre passepartout. Inramad. Den talangfulle landskapsmålaren Carl Flodman studerade vid Konstakademien 1883-86 men gick bort endast 25 år gammal efter en kort tids sjukdom. Hans efterlämnade produktion av målningar är mycket liten. Från Vaxholm finns utöver denna teckning även oljemålningen »Uppdragna båtar», daterad 26/2 1885. Viggo Loos' karakteristik av målningen säger en del även om teckningen: »Det var framför allt vid stränderna och fiskelägena, som Flodman fann motiv för sitt friluftsstudium utan allt effektsökeri. Han nöjde sig med det enklast tänkbara, några svarta båtskrov och en röd sjöbod» (1).Flodman utmärkte sig i hög grad som tecknare: »Hur förträffliga hans taflor än äro, öfverträffas de likväl af hans pennteckningar, och ritstiftet förde han med ändå större säkerhet än penseln» (2).Mot slutet av sitt liv utförde Carl Flodman 11 landskapsetsningar i litet format, de hör till klenoderna i svensk etsningskonst.. (1) Friluftsmåleriets genombrott i svensk konst 1860-1885 (1945), s. 309 & 353. Målningens frusna strandmotiv återger ett svart båtskrov som avtecknar sig mot vattnet i bakgrunden. Den såldes som nr 63 på Beijers klassiska vårauktion 1990 (Kat. 40, Stockholm 1990). | (2) Gustaf Lamm, Carl Flodman och hans etsningar (1888), s. 4

Je signe ce volume comme un tèmoignage de franche sympathie pour le collègue co-Bibliophile, Octave Uzanne, New York 26. 10. 1893.» Nummeriertes Exemplar, Nr. 49/100. Auf Japanpapier. Aussergewöhnlich schönes Exemplar aus der legendären Buchbinderwerkstätte von Jules Domont (1847-1931), im hinteren Deckel gestempelt. Inhalt: L'ombrelle, Le parasol - La parapluie; Le gant, La mitaine; Le manchon, La fourrure; Appendice. O. Uzanne (1851-1931), französischer Schriftsteller, Bibliophiler und Verleger kostbarer Bücher. Ein Pionier der Anwendung neuer Technologien, etwa des Farbdrucks, verabscheute er dennoch die Massenproduktion und die damit einhergehende Demokratisierung des Buchs. Nach Silverman kommt Uzanne eine paradoxe Stellung zu: Einerseits snobistischer, reaktionärer Dandy mit einer Vorliebe für vergessene Autoren des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts, andererseits ein Neuerer der Buchkunst und der Bibliophilie, der sich gegen die alte Garde der nur antiquarisch sammelnden, meist aristokratischen Bücherfreunde wandte, die in der Société des Bibliophiles François organisiert waren. Édouard-Henri Avril (1843 -1928), französischer Maler und Grafiker. Unter dem Namen Paul Avril wurde er als Illustrator erotischer bis pornografischer Romane sehr bekannt. Paul Avril hat Gustave Flauberts «Salammbô», Théophile Gautiers «Le Roi Caundale», John Clelands «Fanny Hill», Jean-Baptiste Louvet de Couvrays «Abenteuer des Chevalier de Faublas», Mario Uchards «Mon Oncle Barbassou (Betrachtungen über die Liebe im Harem)», Jules Michelets «Die Frau», Hector Frances «Musk, Hashish and Blood», die Novellensammlungen des Pietro Aretino und den lesbischen Roman «Gamiani», der verschiedene Väter haben soll, illustriert. Als sein Hauptwerk gelten die Zeichnungen zu «De Figuris Veneris» des deutschen Gelehrten Friedrich Karl Forberg. Von Avrils jugendfreien Werken wären noch zu nennen die Illustrationen zu einigen Büchern von Octave Uzanne, darunter dessen Betrachtungen zum Damenhandschuh und zum Muff.

Toning, faint dampstaining and some worming to first few and final signatures, several leaves repaired, legibility not affected, internally clean. A solid copy of a rare title. * Only edition. This dictionary appeared near the end of the Empire Era (1825-1889) and is thus a useful tool for the study of the legal system of that time. Freitas was a prominent Brazilian jurist and state official. An industrious scholar, he composed the first systematic compilation of Brazilian civil law and produced a draft Esboco de Codigo Civil (1860-64). He never finished it, but it was nonetheless a pioneering work that served as the basis for codifications in Brazil, Argentina and other South American nations. OCLC locates three copies of the Vocabulario in North American law libraries (Library of Congress, SMU and the University of Pennsylvania). We located another copy at UC-Berkeley Law School. Not in the British Museum Catalogue.

        DENVER DOLL'S DECOY; or, Little Bill's Bonanza. Being No. 3 of the "Denver Doll" Series. Beadle's Half Dime Library. Vol. XI. No. 285

      Beadle and Adams No. 98 William Street. New York:: Beadle and Adams, No. 98 William Street.. 1883.. 4to. 11" x 8-1/8". 1st edition, later issue (Johannsen BEADLE 285-1/2DL). Ca 1890. Not in Hubin. 15, [1] pp. Text triple column. Last page an advert.. Printed self wrappers.. Spine indents, indicating the work was probably bound at one time. (and, no doubt accounting for its survival, as well as relatively. nice condition). Some edge chipping. Overall VG (paper beginning to. yellow, as usual).. The 'Denver Doll', our research indicates, has the distinction of being the one of the earliest female detective characters in US fiction. To quote Wheeler, " .. she was a splendid specimen of young womanhood.... It was no secret she was a detective; it was no secret she was a terror to. [sic]" The 'Denver Doll, The Detective Queen' was a creation of the prolific dime novelist Edward L. Wheeler, who initially appears in the 14 November 1882 issue of Beadle & Adam's HALF-DIME LIBRARY series, however, despite the charm & competence imbued by Wheeler, the 'Denver Doll' failed to rouse the enthusiasm of the early 1880's dime novel customers & she quickly faded from the scene a few months later with the publication of the 4th series title [March 1883]. This quick public expiration has, in turn, contributed to the present scarcity of the 'Denver Doll' series titles, as well as her lack of notoriety in today's mystery-collector circles... in fact, many believe that the first female detective in US literature was Amelia Butterworth, who appeared much later in Anna Katherine Green's 1897 work, THAT AFFAIR NEXT DOOR (cf. Blain. FEMINIST COMPANION, p. 456). This the third title in the Denver Doll series, with the action occuring in an Idaho mining camp, and is quite rare. . Large wood engraving to front wrapper.
