        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.

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..

        Le vingtième siècle

      Paris, G. Decaux, 1883. 4to. Mit 49 (statt 50 8 kolorierten u. 9 radierten) Tafeln und ca. 275 Abbildungen. 2 Bl., 404 S. Illustrierter Originalleinenband mit Goldschnitt berieben u. bestoßen, Ecken u. Kanten beschabt, kleine Fehlstellen an den Gelenken repariert. Brun, Robida 1.224. - (see bottom lines for condition) - Grandiose Satire einer mobilen Kommunikationsgesellschaft, mit unendlichem Einfallsreichtum illustriert. Technische, gesellschaftliche und politische Entwicklungen werden genüsslich auf die Spitze getrieben. Es gibt Bildtelefon, Lebensmittelfabriken, Modezaren, Frauenempanzipation, Telefonberatung und vielfältige Folgen der Globalisierung. Übernahme westlicher Lebensstandards, Aufeinanderprall fremder Kulturen, globale Vernetzung mit Bildübertragung, Lifereportagen von Kriegsschauplätzen, aber auch peinliche Fehlschaltungen oder bewusste Verletzungen der Privatsphäre kommen vor. Historische Bauwerke müssen sich dem Luft- und Rohrbahnverkehr gnadenlos unterordnen, die Schlemmerlokale, Nobelherbergen und Verkehrszentren sind meist einfach aufgestockt, so z.B. ein Ballonbahnhof auf die Kathedrale von Notre-Dame oder ein weitläufiges Hotel über dem Arc de Triomphe. In der herrlichen Utopie aus der "Belle Epoque" ist die Luft überfüllt mit Motorballonen in allen Variationen, vom Einsitzer bis zum Omnibus und Transatlantik-Ballon, die zusammen mit "Rohrbahnen" den Personentransport übernehmen. Zu einer Zeit, da die Dampfeisenbahn das einzige technische Massenverkehrsmittel zu Land war, zeichnet Robida das Bild eines chaotischen Individual-Luftverkehrs, dem er alle Aufgaben und Probleme unseres heutigen Autoverkehrs, inklusive Camping und Massentourismus, zuordnet (vgl. W. Petri im Nachwort zur Auswahlausgabe "Luftschlösser der Belle Epoque", 1979). Robida wurde besonders durch die Ballonkonstruktionen und -fahrten Giffards und Tissandiers und technische Neuerungen wie das Telefon angeregt. - Es fehlt die Radierung "Les Parisiens assistant au sac de Pékin". Beigebunden ist die bei Brun nicht genannte Tafel "La construction du sixième continent". - Lacks one plate ("Les Parisiens assistant au sac de Pékin"), contains one additional plate ("La construction...") instead which is not called for by Brun. Some minor spotting in places, otherwise a good copy.

        Iapi Oaye / The Word Carrier.

      Greenwood, DT (Dakota Territories, present day South Dakota): Dakota Mission, 18781887 and Santee, Nebraska: Santee Agency 18881936. - Folio, black calf spine and blue cloth boards, black lettering piece at spine; multiple partially bound issues and a few loose issues. Total of approximately 800 issues: Dakota/English, June 1878December 1883 (lacking July 1880, Dec 1882); separate Dakota/English, January 1884March 1913 (lacking JanFeb 1884 Eng., MarApr, AugSept 1885 Eng., June 1887 Eng., Jan 1905 Dak., Eng. & Dak., AugSept 1928 Dak.); separate Dakota/English, January 1916August 1930 (lacking AugSept 1928 Dak., Aug 1930 Dak.); selected daily issues: October 15, 21, 28 and November 4, 11, 18, 1936. A scarce run of this long-lived publication targeted at both the Sioux and white Christian readers.Iapi Oaye was begun by Reverend J. P. Williamson in 1871 for the people of the Dakota Mission, which was founded in 1835. It was printed in Chicago until 1883, when it moved to the press at the Yankton Agency. The introduction of English-language columns and eventual addition of the English title 'Word Carrier' transformed it into a fully-fledged bilingual periodical in English and the Santee dialect of Dakota. A transfer in 1877 from the Yankton Agency to the Santee Agency preceded the 1884 separation of Iapi Oaye and Word Carrier into two separate publications. These developments were accompanied by editorial shifts among J. P. Williamson and three generations of Riggs men: Stephen R., Alfred L.,and Frederick B. Riggs. The latter assumed editorship of the Word Carrier after his father Alfred's death in 1916 and of the Iapi Oaye after Williamson passed away the next year.The separated periodicals began to address divergent areas of interest, the Word Carrier tending to focus on Mission and Santee Normal Training School news with a potentially munificent east-coast audience in mind, and Iapi Oaye tending to discuss matters of local, native, and religious interest. This is likely due to the striking philosophy of A. L. Riggs, who was also the principal of the Santee School. Riggs was anomalous in his adamancy that the school be taught in both English and Dakota: 'Things, not names, are what the true teacher must grasp' (Annual Report, p. 162). Riggs' insistence that the most personal, cultural, and religious sway was to be gained through people's native tongues clashed fatally with the U.S. Government's educational funding policies, but the papers were popular and continued to be published until 1939.Iapi Oaye and the Word Carrier contain first-hand accounts and original editorial commentary, as well as excerpts from other journals, to give a variegated and intimate perspective on historic events and attitudes. 'Several of the correspondents responsible for the content of Iapi Oaye were Dakotas practicing Christianity. These writers' articles add a texture that helps explain the complex cultural transformations working in the Sioux community. The Dakota record reveals two anxious communities, one ruthlessly dedicated to its crusade among the Sioux and one struggling (literally under the gun) to cope with massive social and cultural changes' (Kerstetter). Of particular interest is the Word Carrier's coverage of the Ghost Dance, the death of Sitting Bull, and the Wounded Knee Massacre over the course of several issues in the winter of 189091. Iapi Oaye was the only contemporary paper to cover these topics in a native language, albeit with less stress on the facts and more on admonition.A trove of information on a wide range of matters relating to the condition, culture and history of the Sioux and their interactions with missionaries.CONDITION: Good, some damage to edges of pages, very occasionally a corner of a page missing and only one instance with loss of a few words.REFERENCES: Pilling, Siouan, p. 40; Siebert Sale #1061; Ayer Linguistics ; Allen Dakota 476 (part of entry for Williamson's 'An English-Dakota school dictionary'); Kerstetter, Spin Doctors at Santee: Missionaries and the Dakota-Language Reporting of the Ghost Dance and Wounded Knee in Western Historical Qu [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Don Herold published "Life Magazine" pen and ink illustration art

      n.p., n.d.. 14.25" x 12". "Illustration original art. Pen and Ink on bristol board, 14.25"" x 12"" . Soft soiling / handling marks, with smudge stain to right edge. Small pin holes to upper corners. Verso with publishers identification stamp of ""Copyright by Life Publishing Company."" Signed by Don Herold lower right ""Don Herold.""A spectacular inked published cartoon most likely published in Life Magazine as depicted in their copyright stamp. Life was founded in 1883, and was developed as similar to the British magazine, Punch. It was published for 53 years as a general interest light entertainment magazine, heavy on illustrations, jokes and social commentary. With the motto of the first issue of Life was: ""While there's Life, there's hope."" The new magazine set forth its principles and policies to its readers:""We wish to have some fun in this paper.... We shall try to domesticate as much as possible of the casual cheerfulness that is drifting about in an unfriendly world.... We shall have something to say about religion, about politics, fashion, society, literature, the stage, the stock exchange, and the police station, and we will speak out what is in our mind as fairly, as truthfully, and as decently as we know how"", as such it is easy to see how this wonderful satirical piece would fit into the magazine!The art depicts two ""fat cat"" style clubman, dressed in their suits, smoking cigars, sitting in giant oversize stuffed chairs and reading their newspapers. The commentary along the bottom has them lamenting as:""First Clubman: Jim's Wife insists that he give her a regular allowanceSecond Clubman: Darn these woman that want alimony and won't leave home to get it.""Highly detailed and vibrantly inked. Although unclear which publication week this was ultimately included in, Herold was a regular contributor to Life magazine and this piece depicts the Life copyright stamp on the verso. In addition, Herold also submitted satirical art to numerous other national magazines. Signed by Herold lower right, this large spectacular piece is in great condition and would display beautifully framed."

        Khizhina diadi Toma ili zhizn' sredi rabov. Novyi perevod E. Landini s poslednego tridtsat' piatago londonskago izdaniia, s 46-iu kartinami [Uncle Tom's Cabin, or life among the slaves. A new translation by E. Landini from the latest, thirty-fifth London edition]

      Izdanie Knigoprodavtsa D. D. Fedorova (V tipografii V. Bezobrazova), St. Petersburg 1883 - Octavo (21.3 × 14 cm). Publisher's pictorial red cloth; 518, [2] pp. With forty-six engravings on separate leaves. Boards rubbed to corners and edges; light soil; two pages with small pencil marks; still about very good. First edition of this translation from the original English of Harriet Beecher Stowe's momentous anti-slavery novel, which enjoyed great popularity among the Russian intelligentsia in the mid-nineteenth century and continued to be widely read in the twentieth century. With a brief preface by the publisher, Dmitrii D. Fedorov, who notes the novel's significance in Russia and asserts that the present is the first translation into Russian based on the original English, rather than on German or French translations. The translator was one E. Landini, about whom we are unable to find more information. The engraving used on the front board is based on the frontispiece illustration to the 1853 London edition, by George Thomas, Esq. and T. R. Macquoid, Esq., which first appeared in an American edition in 1888. It has here been reworked to include Cyrillic lettering on the door of the cabin. The other forty-five illustrations likewise appear to have been prepared by a Russian engraver based on the works by Thomas and Macquoid (Uncle Tom's Cabin; or Life Among the Lowly, London: N. Cooke, 1853). Libman 1260. Bakhrushin 1099. We fail to locate this translation through KVK or OCLC. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Eigenh. Albumblatt mit U. Aflenz, 27. VI. 1883.

      1883. ½ S. Gr.-8vo. Beiliegend ein gedr. Portrait. Zitat nach Martial, Epigrammata X, 47: "Quod sis, esse velis, nihilque malis". - Hyrtls wissenschaftliche Reputation gründet wesentlich in seinem "Lehrbuch der Anatomie des Menschen mit Rücksicht auf physiologische Begründung und praktische Anwendung" (1846), das in alle wichtigen Weltsprachen übersetzt wurde. Mit dem insbesondere für die chirurgische Praxis bestimmten "Handbuch der topographischen Anatomie" (1847) verhalf er, der als erster die Bedeutung der Anatomie für die medizinische Praxis erkannte und diese mit der Chirurgie verband, dieser Disziplin im deutschen Sprachraum zu wissenschaftlicher Anerkennung. Die anatomische Technik bereicherte er u. a. durch neue Korrosions- und Injektionsverfahren.

Inscription shows a charming family association: "To Carrie Lees, from her affectionate brother Stuart M. Fraser-Smith".An attractive copy. This book is rarely offered for sale and is surprisingly most uncommon in library holdings. This very scarce directory is full of detailed information relating to trade, business and the lives of those involved in Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Vietnam, the Philippines, Taiwan, Borneo and Japan at the end of the 19th century. There are extensive lists of occupations each with name of the current occupant which is further complimented by the advertisments at the rear many of which also list names of directors and others in roles of responsibility.The first section of the book, begins with treaties, rules, guides and rates. This is followed by sections on the countries or regions covered. Usually this consists of a page or two of text describing the place in broad terms and then a directory listing the positions held and the name of the incumbent current at that time. Finally at the rear of the volume are other useful lists for those living in Hong Kong such as the "Ladies Directory for Hong Kong"; "Private Residences of the Principal Government Officials, the leading Merchants, the Consuls, the Professional Men and Justices of the Peace"; "Alphabetical List of Foreign Residents" etc.The publisher of this volume, Robert Fraser-Smith, was the controversial founder of the Hongkong Telegraph of whom it has been written that he was "atrabilious and scandalous". Robert Fraser-Smith was involved in a great many libel suits and spent some time in gaol.A very nice association copy of a scarce volume. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 156153).

        Morale de Mahomet; ou recueil des plus pures maximes du Coran.Constantinople; Paris, Lamy, 1784. 18mo. Brown morocco (ca. 1865?), gold-tooled spine.

      Brunet V, col. 154; cf. Gay 3357 note (1883 Savary ed. of the Qu'ran). First edition of Savary's French summary of the ideas of Islamic religion, based on his 1883 French translation of the Qu'ran. In a certain sense it may be considered an epitone of the Qu'ran. While Savary's Qu'ran was published in Paris (by Knapen & fils and Onfroy), this summary was also published in Constantinople. While only a few scholars would read the entire Qu'ran, even once it was available in their own language, this summary gave a much larger European audience (as well as French speakers in the Ottoman Empire) a notion of Islamic religion. Savary (1750-1788) began his career as physician to the Court of Provence, but became a leading orientalist and spent much of the years 1776 to 1780 in Egypt before returning to France, where he produced his French translation of the Qu'ran.With booksellers ticket. In very good condition, and virtually untrimmed. First edition, in a bibliophile production, of a French summary of key concepts in Islamic religion, published not only in Paris, but also in Constantinople.
