The Portrait of a Lady (3 vols); Roderick Hudson (2 vols); The American (2 vols); Washington Square; The Europeans; Confidence; The Siege of London; An International Episode; Daisy Miller (with Four Meetings, Longstaff's Marriage, Benvolio); The Madonna of the Future (with A Bundle of Letters, The Diary of a Man of Fifty, Eugene Pickering). Small octavo. Uniform publisher's brown cloth decorated and lettered on the spine in gilt.A set presumably unseen by Edel and Laurence (see A20), who describe a reissue in a pocket edition of which all volumes are dated 1886 or 1887. In the present case, we appear to have this pocket edition, but with all volumes dated 1883, except Daisy Miller (1887) and Washington Square (1886). Edel and Laurence also mention a reported 1883 issue bound two volumes to one in a secondary binding with the publisher's devices on front and back covers. The present set does not have these devices on the covers.Spines slightly darkened. Occasional faint mark to covers. Some light bumping to corners. A very good set. Scarce.

      , 1883. 1883. or, The Child of the Cavern. Translated by W. H. G. Kingston. Philadelphia: Porter & Coates, n.d.[by 1883]. Original brown cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt. First American hardbound edition of this supernatural tale sited deep in a Scottish mine. Per Kingston's introduction, Verne~has called into existence a mine of fabulous wealth, and has placed in it a mysterious being endowed with superhuman powers, who performs wonders unsurpassed in the present prosaic age.~Quoting also from T&M,~The unusually attractive front cover shows the supreme moment when old Silfax, standing with arms raised in a small boat in Loch Malcolm, calls Harfang the bird to ignite the explosive gas trapped under the cavern ceiling.~This tale's first publication in English was in the Spring of 1877, THE BLACK INDIES in George Munro's self-wrappered "Seaside Library." The British authorized edition, THE CHILD OF THE CAVERN, fully illustrated, was issued later that year. The publication date of this Porter & Coates edition is uncertain (Myers cites "[1878?]", while T&M states simply that it had to have been sometime before October 1883); however, it is regarded as the first illustrated (and first hardbound) American edition, as T&M cites no other such American edition earlier than 1888 (and that too was by Porter & Coates). Although P&C published numerous later-printings of Verne tales from the Osgood plates it bought, UNDERGROUND CITY is the only Verne "first" published by Porter & Coates.~This copy is in brown cloth; we have also had terra-cotta (no priority). It is a bright, near-fine copy (trifling wear at the tips, front endpaper with small edge-chips, a few signatures slightly proud) of this attractively-bound book. Rather uncommon.

        Eagle Gulch, an Australian story

      London : James Blackwood & Co., 1883. First and only edition. Octavo, original printed wrappers with vignette illustration, inscribed 'With the Publisher's Compliments' (darkened, stained and chipped; upper wrapper detached; paper loss to spine); pp 57; damp stain to fore-edge of approximately the first half of the volume. An extremely rare fictional work set on Queensland's Darling Downs goldfields. Written by a pseudonymous author of whom nothing is known, the work is utterly obscure and would seem to be one of only two known copies. It does not feature in any bibliography or other reference work. The story is an adventure narrated by a miner from Cornwall. Although it is ostensibly set on the Darling Downs, the fact that Melbourne is the only urban centre mentioned suggests that the author had probably never set foot in Australia, and that he/she used poetic licence to conflate the Queensland and Victorian goldfields. The State Library of New South Wales holds the only other copy we can trace.

        The Cicero Correspondent : a journal of daily events & a medium for general advertisements

      Cover title: The Cicero Correspondent : a Newspaper published on board the Barque Cicero, on her voyage from Plymouth to Port Adelaide, with 368 Immigrants. January 11th to April 12th, 1883. Captain, J.C.B. Jarvis; Surgeon-Superintendent, Dr. Cartwright; Matron, Miss M. Davidson. Price, one shilling. [Sydenham Cottage, Kent Town, S. Aust.] : G. F. Best, 1883.No. 1 - 11 (Feb. - Apr. 1883). Small quarto, printed pink wrappers (detached, stained, with edge and corner wear, later owner's inscription to front upper margin), contents stitch-bound, each issue individually paginated (most 3 or 4 pages), occasional foxing, otherwise sound. Rare. During the immigrant ship Cicero's 1883 voyage from Plymouth to Adelaide, G.F. Best produced a newspaper in manuscript form which was circulated amongst the other passengers. 'The weekly pages of the "Cicero Correspondent" found so much favor on board during the voyage ... he decided to have the entire issue printed and published in book form upon arrival in Adelaide. The work, although of modest pretensions, is really a ship's journal, and not filled up with extracts from periodical literature...' (preface). Copies are held in two Australian collections (State Library of South Australia; National Library of Australia); a photocopy of the original manuscript (which is presumably in a private collection) is held in the State Library of Queensland.

Auguste Voisin (1829-1898) succéda en 1865 à Félix Voisin à Bicêtre et, en 1867, à Jean-Pierre Falret à la Salpêtrière où il resta plus de 30 ans. Cet ouvrage est l'un des quelques textes de psychiatrie illustrés par des photographies originales, celui-ci étant sûrement parmi les moins connus. Neuf planches illustrent le texte : 1 planche non numérotée est insérée entre les pp. 336-337 ; 5 sont lithographiées en couleur ; 3 sont composées de 13 photoglypties contrecollées sur papier fort. Ces dernières représentent des portraits de fous : folie par sthénie (lypémaniaque), folie haschischique et folie mélancolique (traitées et guéries par la morphine).

        Essai sur l'urémie délirante

      Lyon, A. Pastel, 1883, in-8, 86, [1] pp, broché, couverture imprimée de l'éditeur, ÉDITION ORIGINALE de cette intéressante thèse sur l'urémie délirante, et sur les rapports qui existent entre les troubles de la fonction urinaire et les désordres cérébraux. Manque un feuillet de questions sur les diverses branches des sciences médicales correspondant aux pages 87-88. Jules Bouvat définit l'urémie délirante comme un "état maniaque, accompagné souvent d'hallucinations de la vue, plus rarement d'hallucinations de l'ouïe ou de la sensibilité générale". Par ailleurs, cette étude se compose en 5 grands axes : l'historique, les observations de patients, les causes, les formes que présente l'urémie et enfin le diagnostic, le pronostic et les traitements de la maladie. Envoi signé de l'auteur à l'attention du docteur Carrier sur le faux-titre. Bon exemplaire. Manques sur le plat supérieur et au dos. Cachet ex-libris du docteur Carrier sur le faux-titre.

A mixed set - vol. I is a third, vol. II a first edition. Colquhoun's account of his travels in Indo-China derives from his work with a surveying mission in the area. According to the Preface, "The main object of my journey was to ascertain the commercial and physical aspect of south-west China and of the Shan country" (p.vii). Dressed as a Chinaman, Colquhoun travelled from Canton to Yunnan and then, foiled in his expectation of crossing the border into the Shan States, north and west to Bhamo, from which he continued south through Burma. His report on the prospects for trade in the region led to an initiative from the various Chambers of Commerce. Cordier Bibliotheca Indosinica p.192; Trager 0213.

        Life on The Mississippi

      Boston: James R. Osgood, 1883 Illustrated with 316 images by John Harley, Edmund Henry Garrett, and A. B. Shute. First edition, first state, with the illustration of the author and an urn bearing his initials in flames on page 441, and with the caption "The St. Louis Hotel" on the illustration on page 443. Publisher's decorative brown cloth, with pictorial panels depicting the Mississippi River stamped in gilt to the front board and spine, decorative ruling and ornamentations stamped in black to the front board. Near fine, with some light rubbing to the spine ends and corners, spine slightly starting inside the front cover, otherwise sturdy binding, clean pages. BAL 3411. Life on the Mississippi is a semi-autobiographical text about the history of the Mississippi River and the author's adventures riding on a steamboat from St. Louis to New Orleans. While much of the information in this text is factual, many of the individual episodes were fabricated to varying degrees and are better considered tall tales than accurate documentation. For example, Twain provides an account of the origin of his pseudonym, which he claims he took from Captain Isaiah Sellers. While the explanation of "mark twain" as a riverman's phrase for water found to be two fathoms deep (12 feet) is undoubtedly correct, it is likely that the stories regarding Sellers are at least partially embellished. In addition to offering insight into the author's earlier life, Life on the Mississippi provides historical context on the industrialization of the United States in the second half of the 19th century; throughout the text, Twain discusses the competition of railroads along with the growing cities in the American Midwest and South.. Illus. by Harley, John; Garrett, Edmund Henry; Shute, A.B.. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.
