        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]

      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.

        The Hongkong Directory and Hong List for The Far East, for 1884.

      Hong Kong. Robert Fraser-Smith. 1883. 566pp + [20] page section of advertisments, light even browning throughout, a little heavier on endpapers, occasional spotting. Bound in original red cloth boards gilt, a little flecked and marked, some fairly minor damp staining upper section lower cover upper section, spine discoloured. 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.

        Die Mechanik in ihrer Entwickelung (The Development of Mechanics or The Science of Mechanics)

      First edition of Ernst Mach's influential work on mechanics. One copy in the British library and a few on the market that have been rebound or in various states of disrepair. The work that massaged Einstein's gray matter towards General Relativity - important (the understatement of this writeup). ******** Near Fine in original publisher's binding. A shade faded on spine, touch of general rubbing on the covers. Marbled edges, internally quite clean. A very sound and excellent copy and rarely seen as such.***** Ernst Mach (February 18, 1838 - February 19, 1916) made major contributions to physics, philosophy, and physiological psychology. In physics, the speed of sound bears his name, as he was the first to systematically study super-sonic motion. He also made important contributions to understanding the Doppler effect. His critique of Newtonian ideas of absolute space and time were an inspiration to the young Einstein, who credited Mach as being the philosophical forerunner of relativity theory. His systematic skepticism of the old physics was similarly important to a generation of young German physicists. (Stanford)

Originally published in monthly parts from 1873 to 1878, this lavishly illustrated series was first undertaken by Walter Thornbury (1828–1876), a frequent contributor to Household Words, and one of the group who were popularly referred to as Dickens's "young men". Upon his death, aged 48, at Camberwell House Lunatic Asylum of "exhaustion from acute mania", which occurred just after the publication of the second volume in this series, the work was continued by Edward Walford (1823–1897). Walford had recently finished editing Charles Knight's six-volume work London. This work, as well as Walford's separate two volume addition, Greater London, "became the standard popular work describing the history and growth of the metropolis", and were frequently updated and reissued (ODNB). Uncommon together, with four copies traced at auction featuring both sets together. The map portfolio is especially uncommon in the original cloth; they are most commonly found bound in a pocket to the rear of the final volume. [Attributes: First Edition]

Octavo (7 1/4 x 4 1/4 in; 180 x 116 mm). xvi, 392 pp. Nineteen black and white plates with tissue guards, sixty-five black and white text illustrations.

The beautifully inlaid and colorful "Kelliegram bindings were one of many innovations of the English commercial binding firm of Kelly & Sons. The Kelly family had one of the longest connections in the history of the binding trade in London, having been founded in 1770 by John Kellie, as the name was then spelled. The binding firm was carried on by successive members of the family into the 1930s. William Henry Kelly significantly developed the company in the first half of the nineteenth century, followed by William Henry, Jr., Henry, and Hubert Kelly, who took control in 1892, taking the firm into the twentieth century?The development [during the 1880s] that came to be known as Kelliegram was one of the bindery's most notable, and the popularity continues today as demonstrated by the prices Kelliegram bindings command at auction and in the rare book trade" (Dooley, Kelliegram Bindings, Brynmawr Library). George Cruikshank was and remains the most celebrated caricaturist and book illustrator of the 19th century. The previous owner, the noted book collector John Jakob Raskob, was a financial executive and businessman for DuPont and General Motors, and the builder of the Empire State Building.

        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. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Le Avventure di Pinocchio: Storia di un Burattino

      Florence: Felice Paggi, 1883. Mazzanti, Enrico. Small octavo. 236pp., + iipp. of advertisements. First edition. The enduring children's classic about a mischievous marionette whose nose grows every time he tells a lie, in the original Italian and wonderfully illustrated with a full-page frontispiece of the titular character, as well as sixty-one additional woodcuts interspersed throughout the text. The first half of Pinocchio was originally published serially in the children's magazine Giornale per i Bambini from 1881 to 1883, and it is thought that the story was not intended primarily as children's literature, as it did not end happily: Pinocchio was hanged from a tree for his various moral failings. It was at the urging of his publisher that author Carlo Collodi (a pseudonym for Carlo Lorenzini) added the second half of the book, in which The Blue Fairy repeatedly comes to Pinocchio's rescue, guiding him toward self-awareness and enabling his transformation from puppet to human. Popular in Italy at the time of its publication, the book and its author went on to gain international acclaim when the story was translated into English in 1892. Pinocchio is still cherished to this day and has been the subject of numerous adaptations, including popular versions by Disney and Steven Spielberg, who used the story as the basis for his 2001 film AI. This very rare first edition of the book - only five copies have come up for auction in nearly twenty-five years - is bound in quarter red calf and marbled boards by Devauchelle. Raised bands divide the spine into compartments, two of which bear the title and date in gilt. The endpapers are marbled. Housed in a clamshell box with marbled boards and red leather backing, title and decorations on spine in gilt. Some toning and light staining to the interior, a small closed tear to the margin of two pages, and several unobtrusive stamped and handwritten ownership signatures, otherwise a fine copy of this high spot of children's literature.

        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.

        Almost Lost : A Tale of Old Pye Street

      Diprose & Bateman, London 1883 - London: Diprose & Bateman, 1883. Undated [1883]. George MacDonald's copy of this scarce English novel, with his bookplate on the front pastedown and his signature at the head of the title page. Noted perhaps best for At the Back of the North Wind, MacDonald was a prominent author and scholar of the 19th century who wrote mainly for the child in every reader. There is a verse written in blue colored pencil on the half-title: "Strait is the road? Oh! not too strait / If it be straight & lead straight home / Strait straight it stops at heaven's wide gate / And all beyond is largest room". The signature matches another book we have that is signed by MacDonald, but the verse may be in another hand, or he may have written by MacDonald from an awkward position - the slant is entirely different from his handwriting, but shares quite a few characteristics. Three quarter leather over red pebble-textured cloth, all edges, tinted red, patterned endpapers, 264 pages. Externally quite worn, with spine strip chipped off (most of it is laid in the front of the book), front cover hanging on by one binder's cord. Internally much better, with sound text with no loosened pages, pages clean with no additional markings. . Inscribed by George MacDonald, Another Author. Hard Cover. Fair. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

        The Story of an African Farm: A Novel.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1883. First edition of this highspot of African literature. Octavo, original olive cloth binding, 2 volumes. Published under the pseudonym 'Ralph Iron'. The entire printing of this first edition has been estimated to be about 300 copies. and most were destined to libraries. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Rare, especially in the original cloth. The Story of an African Farm (published in 1883 under the pseudonym Ralph Iron) was South African author Olive Schreiner's first published novel. It was an immediate success and has become recognized as one of the first feminist novels. In writing the first great South African novel, Schreiner drew on childhood memories of life on the isolated African veld to fashion a powerful indictment of the rigid Boer and English social conventions of her day. It was greeted by both praise and condemnation for its feminist views on women's status and on marriage, and for its unorthodox critique of dishonesty and hypocrisy in the doctrines and practices of "respectable" Christian church people.

        THREE AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED BY JAMES FORLONG AT THE TIME OF PUBLICATION OF HIS MAJOR WORK "RIVERS OF LIFE".

      Edinburgh, Scotland: March 4 & 6 and April 13, 1883. - - Each letter is penned in black ink and fills all 4 sides of his cream letterhead, which is folded once to form 4 sides, each 7 inches high by 4-1/2 inches wide, with Forlong's Edinburgh address printed at the top of the first side. The letters are signed "J. Forlong". Folded twice for mailing. Very good. James George Roche Forlong (1824-1904) was a Major General of the Indian Army. Trained as an engineer in Scotland and England, he joined the Indian Army in 1843 and later held posts with the government of Oudh. His exposure to Indian religions led him to explore, research and develop heterodox ideas about religious origins. His substantial work "Rivers of Life" was regarded as blasphemous by some for its sexual interpretations of religious rituals and symbolism.These three letters, all with excellent content, are written to a Mr. Simpson, who is regarded by the editor of the Glasgow Herald James Stoddart as "one of the first living authors" on ancient religions. The letters concern the process of publishing and promoting "Rivers of Life". It was scheduled to be published that spring by Bernard Quaritch, along with its accompanying chart, which Forlong would prefer to have distributed in a case rather than rolled up. The letters are largely devoted to pressing Simpson to help publicize the book: "If you would like a good friend, testify to the usefullness of the work in any Dailies Weeklies or Magazines about the same time I shd be much obliged." One author tells Forlong "Yr immortal IX Chapter [is] one of the strongest and best pieces of ethnological & mythological writing I have ever encountered". However, Forlong seems anxious that the controversial content of his opus, which includes research on phallic religions and is frank about the sexual nature of many rites and ceremonies, will offend the reviewers. "[They] will be wrath for my treading on their most tender corns & even 'secret parts'!" On how to approach the book, Forlong urges Simpson on March 6: "I wish you would not do your thorough reading of the vols until you have dashed thro them all & especially my last chapter No. IX wch goes systematically into the philosophical questions especially from p 459 to the end." Forlong is also concerned that he will not be viewed as anti-religion or irreligious. "Necessarily my work is anti biblical not in regard to the Jewish bible only but as I say in my Preface xxxi I will mete out praise & blame to all as impartially as I can." He writes further on April 13th, "I wish you would therefore kindly send 'Notice No. II' going a little into matters & showing the spirit of the work. I would not wish the Scotch view to fancy I am not religious for this wd not only damage the book but wd not be true, I holding that I have a highly religious nature tho breaking with all the superstitions of the past."

Febr. 31). Erstausgabe WG 27. Joachim Ringelnatz (* 7. August 1883 in Wurzen - + 17. November 1934 in Berlin eigentlich Hans Gustav Bötticher) war ein deutscher Schriftsteller, Kabarettist und Maler, der vor allem für humoristische Gedichte um die Kunstfigur Kuttel Daddeldu bekannt ist. Er war bekannt zur Zeit der Weimarer Republik, stand an Popularität den Comedian Harmonists in nichts nach und zählte Schauspieler wie Asta Nielsen und Paul Wegener zu seinen engen Freunden und Weggefährten. Sein teils skurril, expressionistisch, witzig und geistreich geprägtes Werk hat noch einen hohen zeitgenössischen Bekanntheitsgrad. In diesem Werk schildert Ringelnatz unter dem Pseudonym Hester sein Leben in der Zeit des Ersten Weltkrieges. Während dieser Zeit diente er sich bei der Marine vom Matrosen bis zum Leutnant hoch und meldete sich freiwillig zu Kampfeinsätzen. Dabei diente Ringelnatz an wechselnden Orten, meist in der Nähe von Cuxhaven. Auch seine Urlaubserlebnisse finden in seinen Ausführungen Platz.
