        Treasure Island.

      London: Cassell & Company, 1883. First edition, first issue, with all the following points: "Dead Man's Chest" not capitalized on pages 2 and 7; "rain" for "vain" on last line of page 40; "a" lacking on page 63, line 6; the "7" in the pagination of page 127 absent; period dropped from page 178, line 20 (after "opportunity"); "worse" for 'worst' on page 197, line 3; frontispiece map in three colors. With eight-page publisher's catalogue dated 5R-1083 at the end, and with this title listed incorrectly as having 304 pages. Octavo, original green cloth. In near fine condition with Maggs description tipped in, and remnants of other descriptions no longer attached. Inspired by a detailed map of an island that Stevenson and his stepson drew one rainy day, with hidden treasure and cryptic instructions reverently included... Treasure Island is best enjoyed as its author intended, simply as a good tale well told" (Silvey, 631). The serial publication in Young Folks (running through January 1882) was not especially well-received, but on its appearance in book form the following year in an edition of only 2000 copies, the story was hailed as the best tale of adventure in print. "The force of invention and vividness of narrative appealed to every reader" (DNB).

        Twenty Scenes from the Works of Dickens

      Thomas H. Fielding, Sydney 1883 - Small folio, (12 1/2" x 9 5/8"), bound in half red leather over marbled paper covered boards, Spine has five raised bands and is heavily decorated in gold. Top edge gilt. Marbled endpapers. Two titles, one engraved and illustrated, one letterpress. Contains all 20 etchings by Coveny on heavy stock, images appearing on rectos, with corresponding letterpress on verso of opposing page. Plate seven is in two states, one being printed on India paper and bound in before the actual plate, as issued. Coveny was born in 1846 and sent to England to be educated. Returning to Australia to practice law he soon abandoned the profession and took up teaching, before embarking on a career in art in 1878, the year of his father's death. "Twenty Scenes." is undoubtedly his most famous work and he garnered mixed reviews upon its publication: "A.E. Greenwood and H.W.H. Stephen in Catalogue (Descriptive and Critical) of the Art Gallery with Sydney Art Notes (Sydney, 1883) called him 'a caricaturist of great power’ and claimed that his copper etchings illustrative of Pickwick were 'almost worthy of Cruikshank himself’ (their only too obvious source)." His career was short lived, however, as he suffered a nervous breakdown in 1884 which effectively ended his artistic career. Leather spine shows light rubbing to tips and bands, and there is mild general wear to extremities and a touch of mild shelf-wear to front cover. Interior is very clean, with no previous ownership marks, no foxing and no marking. A superior copy of this very scarce Sydney imprint, purportedly limited to print run of 219. One copy is housed in the National Gallery of Australia. A very good+ copy. Scans sent on request. Podeschi H1042 Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Les Laboureurs. Poème tiré de Jocelyn. Reproduit en caractères tissés avec license des propriétaires éditeurs

      Title with the armorial device of the City of Lyon on verso & 20 pp., all woven in silver and black silk thread, each page surrounded by a fine interlocking ornamental border. Large 16mo, orig. janseniste brown morocco, original ornamental woven silk doublures, the opposing leaves bearing the same motif but woven in reverse, original monochrome silk endleaves (upper joint almost invisibly repaired), orig. slipcase. Lyon: J.A. Henry, 1883. The first book woven entirely in silk by the Jacquard loom method. It is of the greatest rarity; WorldCat locates only the BnF copy. Today virtually unknown, the silk-woven Lamartine precedes by at least three years the celebrated Livre de Prières tissé (1886-87). Our volume represents the very first book created by an automated machine, with hundreds of thousands of programmed operations generated by highly complex algorithms through the use of punched cards. At the time of its invention, in 1801, the Jacquard loom was the most complex programmable machine in existence, for which thousands of punched cards were employed as automated weaving instructions for a mechanized loom. The incredible potential of Jacquard's punched card system, with its binary data and disarmingly modern "input / output" capabilities, was seized upon by English visionary Charles Babbage (1791-1871), who integrated the process into his theoretical "Analytical Engine." James Essinger argues convincingly that the Jacquard Loom was pivotal in the development of computer science (see Jacquard's Web: How a Hand-loom led to the Birth of the Information Age, 2004). It is of the greatest significance that present creation precedes the celebrated Livre de Prières tissé (1886-87) by at least three years, and thus remains the very first example of a "computer generated" book. With uncanny prescience, the data input mechanisms and intricate algorithms that were responsible for creating the present volume prefigure modern computer automation and computer programming. Information about the creation of the present volume is scarce, but a highly interesting account of it is given in the August 1889 issue of Le Correspondant. While describing the Livre de Prières tissé as a marvel of technology and a model of bibliophilic refinement, the author freely acknowledges that "this is not the first time that the Lyon manufacturer [J.A. Henry] had performed a similar feat: several years ago there appeared Lamartine's poem Les Laboureurs - a complete curiosity; examples of it are rare and have never been offered for sale on the open market. One of them is in the Bibliothèque Mazarine; another copy, unique and even richer than the preceding, was ordered by the Comte de Paris on the condition that no other examples would be created; it now holds an honored place in the library of the Chateau d'Eu"(see "Une Merveille artistique: un Livre de Prières tissé en soie," Vol. 156, pp. 602 et seq.). Additional details about the book appeared in the 1889 periodical Le Livre / Bibliographie moderne (Revue mensuelle) in which is related an exchange between Émile Egger, author of L'Histoire du Livre (1880) and M. Heinrich, Dean of the Faculty of Arts in Lyon. Egger was informed that from his extensive study of bookmaking techniques, he had mistakenly omitted one very important book, namely "a book that was not printed, but woven in silk by a disciple of Jacquard, namely J.A. Henry, a Lyonnais manufacturer. The text of this book was Lamartine's poem Les Laboureurs. It was an experiment of weaving&hellip;and is the true prototype of the Livre de Prières, the latter being the direct result of the Lamartine experiments" (Vol. 10, 4e Livraison [10 April 1889], p. 207). Two issues exist of this book. The title-page of our copy is clearly dated 1883 and gives the address of publisher, J.A. Henry, as 24, rue Lafont, Lyon. The Bibliothèque Nationale copy is not dated, but it does supply some very significant information about the work, namely that it was created as a souvenir of the 1878 Paris Exposition by J.A. Henry (stated address: 3, rue du Garet, Lyon). Messieurs Prignol were responsible for "mise en carte" (i.e., the creation of the punched cards that "programmed" the Jacquard loom). Lespinasse & Paquet undertook operations ("usage") and Messieurs Vallet engaged in the actual weaving process ("tissage"). A fine copy of an extraordinary book. &#10087; Unknown to Michael Laird, "Le Livre de Prières tissé" in The World From Here: Treasures of the Great Libraries of Los Angeles, 2001, no. 63-"other books woven by this firm have not been located.".

        Life On The Mississippi

      Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1883. First edition, first state of this provocative portrait of the great Mississippi River with tailpiece of Twain in flames on p.441 still present and caption on p.443 corrected to read "The St. Charles Hotel." Octavo, original brown cloth, gilt titles and tooling the spine and front panel, all edges gilt. In very good condition with reinforcement to the front and rear hinges and rubbing to the extremities. An invaluable companion to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Life on the Mississippi is Mark Twain's inimitable portrait of 'the great Father of Waters'. Part memoir, part travelogue, it expresses the full range of Twain's literary personality, and remains the most vivid, boisterous and provocative account of the cultural and societal history of the Mississippi Valley, from 'the golden age' of steamboating to the violence wrought by the Civil War.

      Edition originale de cet important programme illustré (Picasso, Braque, Derain, Jean Hugo). Le comte Étienne de Beaumont (1883-1956), fut à la fois un créateur de décors de ballets, de costumes et de bijoux, un peintre, un mondain accompli, connu pour ses bals masqués, et un généreux mécène.

        Inversion du sens génital et autres perversions sexuelles

      Paris, Aux bureaux du progrès médical, A. Delaye & E. Lecrosnier, 1883. 1883, 1883, in-4, 38 pp, broché, couverture d'attente, Rare première édition de cette publication présentée par Charcot et Magnan consacrée aux habitudes sexuelles "dégénérées", extraite des Archives de neurologie. Les auteurs traitent ici de l'homosexualité et du fétichisme. Notons que le terme "fétichisme" est utilisé pour la première dans un sens sexologique en 1887 dans un article de la Revue philosophique par Alfred Binet, qui s'appuie justement sur les exemples donnés par Charcot et Magnan (exemples des clous de chaussures pour femme, du bonnet de nuit et du tablier blanc). Les deux psychiatres s'appuient sur les témoignages de patients et leur généalogie dans le but de démontrer que les déviances sexuelles sont les conséquences d'une folie "héréditaire", d'une "dégénérescence".

With full page biographies of each of the subjects. The Woodburytype process involved the preparation of photosensitive plates and multiple layers of tinted gelatin. The resultant images are famous for their clarity and for the spectacular depth. However the process was also expensive as each plate could produce as few as 50 copies before needing replacement so the method soon fell out of favour and other less expensive, albethey less clear processes of photomechanical reproduction were developed.

Housed in a custom clamshell box. $4000.First edition of the second book of Uncle Remus stories, illustrated with frontispiece and 19 plates by Frederick Church.While working for the Atlanta Constitution in 1876, Harris “invented Uncle RemusÂ… He published Uncle Remus pieces regularly in the Constitution, and they were extremely popular. In 1880 he collected them into his first bookÂ… Eventually, seven more Uncle Remus volumes followedÂ… Although Harris created Uncle Remus as a composite of three elderly slaves he had known, the stories themselves were his retellings of old African American tales. He rigorously researched his material, often collecting several versions of the same story until he felt he had the most authentic oneÂ… The stories Harris had heard originally were never meant to be told for the benefit of a white child; rather they were an integral part of the slave culture out of which they grew. Nevertheless, Harris made an important contribution by carefully and accurately preserving these stories” (Silvey, 296). BAL 7109. Blockson 6000. Gift inscription.[Justify]Expert reinforcement to front inner paper hinge. Original pictorial cloth lightly rubbed, gilt bright. A lovely copy, in very nearly fine condition.

        Che! Wah! Wah!

      1883. First Edition . (WEST) STREET, George. Che! Wah! Wah! or The Modern Montezumas in Mexico. Illustrated with photographs taken during the trip by R.D. Cleveland. Rochester, N.Y.: E.R. Andrews, 1883. Octavo, original gilt- and black-stamped orange cloth, watered silk endpapers. $3800.Scarce first edition of a photographic record of an 1882 excursion of railway agents from Chicago across the West into Mexico—one of the rare 19th-century works to include a photograph of Texas—a splendid chronicle of the allure and economic might of the railroad, with folding map of the route, color frontispiece, 32 mounted vintage albumen prints and two full-page illustrations, in original bright gilt cloth.This scarce first edition of Che!Wah!Wah! is one of the rare 19th-century works to feature vintage photographs of Texas and Mexico. One of the period's most unique travel books, it chronicles the journey of over 50 railroad agents who traveled, in late 1882, from Chicago to Mexico on several railroad lines, including the Mexican Central railroad, to Chihuahua. The trip came about at a meeting of line managers of the Chicago, Burlington &amp; Quincy, the Denver &amp; Rio Grande, and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroads, when agents representing eastern railroads were invited ""on an excursion to Colorado, New Mexico and Mexico… The magnitude of the proposed trip astonished everyone"" (8-9). Che! Wah! Wah!, authored by George Street of Rochester's Blue Line, and featuring 32 vintage mounted albumen prints from photographs by R.D. Cleveland, of the Burlington line, is an exceptional photographic record of that trip—one that was also ""a busman's holiday… The party derived a good deal of innocent amusement from the Che! Wah! Wah! joke"" (Hanna &amp; Reese, From Train to Plane 43). Che! Wah! Wah! reveals the passion of the age, which embraced railroads ""as the epitome of modernity."" In a time of rapid economic growth, railroad lines also ""actively promoted western railroad journeys as modern journeys into the sublime… The 1879 edition of The Pacific Tourist made the transcontinental trip seem both an inspirational immersion in nature and a journey utterly devoid of physical effort."" Che! Wah! Wah! documents, as well, the railroad's looming and powerful impact. The 32 vintage mounted albumen prints in Che!Wah!Wah! offer a rare glimpse into that ""innovation,"" as well as the lives of people in towns across the West and Mexico. Included are images of a train's dining car; depots in Nebraska and Colorado; Denver's majestic Windsor hotel and Colorado's Marshall Pass; a bridge ""In the Grand Canon of the Arkansas""; the Colorado towns of Leadville and Trinidad, of Raton, New Mexico and El Paso, Texas; Indian children in Isleta, New Mexico, and views of Chihuahua's magnificent cathedral, its busy plazas and markets. Also included are images of the luxurious hotel, known as ""The Montezuma,"" near the Hot Springs of Las Vegas, New Mexico. With folding map of the train route, color frontispiece of a woodblock print, two full-page illustrations, 32 mounted vintage albumen prints (each approximately 3-1/2 by 5 inches) and numerous in-text illustrations; ""Mileage Minutes of the Trip"" at rear. Interior fresh with lightest scattered foxing, mild fading to vintage mounted prints, front inner paper hinge expertly reinforced, light edge-wear to bright gilt-stamped cloth.

        Treasure Island

      1883. First Edition . STEVENSON, Robert Louis. Treasure Island. London: Cassell, 1883. Small octavo, original green cloth. Housed in custom clamshell box. $27,000.First edition, first issue of Stevenson's swashbuckling yarn of piracy, mutiny and courage, ""the finest tale of maritime adventure that has been told since Defoe"" (Prideaux, 28), an exceptionally lovely copy, far more beautiful than usually found.""Inspired by a detailed map of an island that Stevenson and his stepson drew one rainy day, with hidden treasure and cryptic instructions reverently included… Treasure Island is best enjoyed as its author intended, simply as a good tale well told"" (Silvey, 631). The serial publication in Young Folks (running through January 1882) was not especially well-received, but on its appearance in book form the following year in an edition of only 2000 copies, the story was hailed as the best tale of adventure in print. ""The force of invention and vividness of narrative appealed to every reader"" (DNB). ""Here were adventure, suspense, drama, all set down by the hand of a recognizable genius"" (Meigs et al., 238). First published in serial form in Young Folks magazine (October 1881-January 1882). Only 2000 copies of this first book edition published. First issue, with all the following points: ""Dead Man's Chest"" not capitalized on pages 2 and 7; ""rain"" for ""vain"" on last line of page 40; ""a"" lacking on page 63, line 6; the ""8"" is absent in the pagination of page 83; the ""7"" in the pagination of page 127 is present but bold; period dropped from page 178, line 20 (after ""opportunity""); ""worse"" for""worst"" on page 197, line 3; frontispiece map in three colors.
