        Felis Euptilura [Leopard Cat]

      Daniel Giraud Elliot for the subscribers, [London 1883 - Hand-coloured lithograph by J.Smit after Joseph Wolf, printed by M. & N.Hanhart. A very fine image from 'the best animal painter who ever lived' (Sir Edwin Landseer). The `Leopard Cat Felis bengalensis . [is one] of the most widely distributed Asian small cats ranging from North India and Nepal across China as far as the Amur River basin in Siberia and south through Indo-China, Malaysia, Indonesia to the Philippine Islands. The leopard cat prefers forested areas but can adapt to a wide variety of habitats and is even to be found near human settlements. It is an excellent swimmer and has colonised many small offshore islands. Prey includes fish as well as birds, reptiles, rodents, hares and young deer. There is considerable variation in appearance depending on locality but the typical form has a coat of tawny or buff fur strikingly marked with large dark brown spots. Animals from the colder areas in the north of the range are larger, thicker haired, greyish in colour with rather indistinct rufous markings, while examples from the Indonesian islands are small, short haired and marked with numerous small spots. Overall length between 20 and 37 inches; weight from 6 to 15lb. Shown here are two leopard cats from Siberia and northern China.' ( The Natural History Museum Library Big Cats A selection of magnificent illustrations by Joseph Wolf London: 1991, pp.18-22). A very fine image from Elliot's magnificent work A Monograph of the Felidae or Family of Cats (London: 1878-1883) which described and pictured all the species of cats then known, and is still the most beautiful work on the subject. The work was prompted by a perceived need to resolve the confusion that had built up around the naming of the various species of Felidae , particularly amongst the smaller cats. Wolf worked from specimens provided by Elliot, who visited all the great museums and zoological societies on both sides of the Atlantic. This allowed Elliot to make a comparative study of skeletons and skins and reduce the number of apparently separate species by nearly a third. Joseph Wolf served an apprenticeship with a Koblentz firm of lithographers, and spent some time working in Leiden and Darmstadt, before moving to London in 1848. The quality of his images was recognized immediately and he was rarely without work, producing natural history pictures of the highest quality for the Zoological Society of London, Henry Dresser, George Gray and John Gould, amongst many others. Wolf's work for Elliot marks the high-point of his illustrative work and his images of the cats are considered by many to be his masterpieces. Cf. Nissen ZBI 1279; cf. Wood p.332.

        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.
