The immediate cause of the riot was the death of a Chinese man after he was pushed off the steamer Hankow, but there had been underlying tensions for a long time between foreigners and Chinese. ?We have been induced to publish the appended information respecting the riot at Canton. on account of the fact that it has been represented to us that a complete record of the affair would be of great value. The entire contents of the pamphlet are taken from the various issues of the China Mail published since the first intimation of the riot was received.? [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Specimen Days & Collect - inscribed copy

      Philadelphia: McKay, 1883. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition, later issue, with McKay imprint, has photo of Whitman and butterfly facing p. 122, terminal leaf with ad for Leaves of Grass, 374 pp., 8vo, mustard cloth gilt. VG copy with light soil, front inner hinge slightly strained, light rubbing to spine ends, pages a bit tanned, old owner's inscription in green ink (dated 1941) on flyleaf; INSCRIBED ON FLYLEAF BY WHITMAN: 'Joseph Beck from his friend Walt Whitman, Nov. 9 '89' -- looks good to us, but provenance is Ian Richardson, a sometime dealer in books from Denver, not an ABAA member, so no guarantees, but it feels right. Some prior owner has made a notation that Joseph Beck was a laborer in Camden, but we have no way of confirming that.

        Three extraordinarily detailed manuscript volumes on the technology of silk weaving: title in Vol. I: "Ecole Municipale de Tissage et de Broderie de Lyon. Cours de Thèorie 1908-1909. Emile Poulat"; Vol. II: "École Municipale de Tissage de Lyon. Cours de Théorie 1939-1940. Yves Poulat"; and Vol. III: "École Municipale de Tissage de Lyon. Cours de Théorie 1940-1941. Yves Poulat." 285 samples of different fabrics (one seems to be missing) & 179 intricately hand-colored paper diagrams pasted-in. Hundreds of extremely detailed & finely executed diagrams & illus. in the text. Nine sheets of diagrams & illus. bound-in. Unpaginated but in excess of 1000 pages. Three vols. Thick folio (350 x 260 mm.), half-sheep & cloth sides ca. 1941, written throughout on graph paper. Lyons: 1908-41

      This is the most complex, extensive, and richly illustrated series of manuscripts on the techniques of the manufacture of silk and other textiles I have encountered (and over the last 39 years I have had many). There are 285 fabric samples tipped-in along with 179 hand-colored paper diagrams. The text is richly illustrated as well with highly and minutely detailed colored diagrams throughout. Lyons has been a textile and silk center for many centuries; in the 19th century, a large proportion of the city's population was engaged in one aspect of the textile trade or another. The École Municipale de Tissage et de Broderie was established in 1883 to offer organized instruction and training for silk workers in both the theory of weaving and the actual operation and maintenance of the machines. The Poulats, father and son, were instructors at the school and these are their highly detailed manuscript guides to weaving, kept in manuscript to preserve their secret proprietary information. What is so extraordinary about these manuscripts are the detailed instructions given for the seemingly infinite variety of structures of cloth and its ornamentation by weaving has been worked out by the Poulats on squared paper and pasted in as well as depicted in the main body of the texts. We name but a few of the fabrics depicted and analyzed: satins, sateens, brocades, backed and reversible fabrics, compound cloths, piled fabrics including chenille and velveteen, and crossed weaving. The first volume, by Emile Poulat (and numbered on the spine "III") begins with a detailed account of the art of sericulture from incubation to the cocoons and their preparation for reeling. The processing of washing and reeling is shown in the fine full-page drawing. There are several other illustrations of machinery used to prepare the silk. Wild silks are also considered. There are hundreds of diagrams of increasing complexity depicting the warp and weft designs to achieve different effects in the silk fabrics. Part II contains descriptions and diagrams along with actual silk fabric samples pasted-in for many kinds of fabrics: taffetas, satins, velours, "pékin," etc., etc. For each of the hundreds of fabrics, there is a detailed account of the materials required, techniques of weaving, etc. The final section describes the weaving machinery employed in Lyon, with numerous fine close-up drawings of various sections of the looms. There are sections on dyeing and bleaching. Vols. II (numbered "I") and III (numbered "II") again show further - nearly endless -variations in textile design and the technical requirements, with many fabric samples pasted-in. In fine condition.

        Life on the Mississippi

      Boston: James R. Osgood, 1883 FIRST EDITION, FIRST STATE, in the original deluxe binding. The first state has the illustration of Twain's head and urn in flames at page 441 and the "St. Louis" caption on p. 443. Twain's wife Livy had objected that the illustration, which came at the end of a chapter on cremation, was "morbid." In the second state the illustration is lacking. This is a very appealing copy of Twain's autobiographical narrative of his days as a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River. BAL 3411. Original three-quarter calf gilt, deluxe publisher's binding. Minimal wear. A fine copy.

Erste Ausgabe. - "The significance of atomic weights in the demonstration of chemical periodicity, and the suspicion that some atomic weights were not accurate, led Meyer and Seubert to examine critically and to recalculate all atomic weights then considered important. Their study was published in 1883. All atomic weights were referred to the standard of unity for the atomic weight of hydrogen, a standard that Meyer championed. In 1903 the newly created International Commission of Atomic Weights decided to publish parallel tables based on H=1 and O=16, a practice followed for many years" (DSB). - Einband etwas fleckig, sonst wohlerhalten. - DSB 9, 347 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        La Poupée . exemplaire unique.

      Imprimerie de "l'Illustration",, Paris 1883 - First edition: A children's story written for the author's daughter and her doll: 'Exemplaire unique', but actually one of two recorded copies (the other in the Bibliothèque nationale). Pailleron was a prolific and successful literary figure in Paris, as co-director of the Revue des Deux mondes and author of many plays. The Bibliothèque nationale copy contains an inscription permitting the recipient (presumably the printer or editor) to print one more copy only (presumably this one). Several later editions followed, but we can find no more examples of the first. Young Marie-Louise Pailleron appears (with her brother) as the co-subject in John Singer Sargent's first dual portrait, painted in 1880 (she later recorded that she made no less than 83 sittings for it). Large quarto (320 × 242 mm), pp. 11, [3], engraved title vignette and illustrations. Paper slightly cockled throughout, title lightly duststained. Slightly later limp calf, gilt. Rubbed.

Modern marbled wrappers.

      Franken 1375 (note); Meijer, "Het oude doolhof te Amsterdam", in: Oud Holland vol. 1 (1883), pp. 119-135; Spies, De Amsterdamse doolhoven, pp. 70-71. Extremely rare booklet (only one other copy could be traced), the first edition with a description by Jan Vos of a garden, or amusement park, called 'Oude Doolhof' (Old Labyrinth or maze), published as a souvenir or 'flyer'. This first Doolhof, called the 'Oude Doolhof', was founded at the Looiersgracht at Amsterdam by the wine merchant and inn-keeper Vincent Jacobsz. Coster before 1625. In fact it was a kind of combination of a seventeenth-century 'Madame Tussauds' and an amusement park. The garden was composed of a labyrinth in which fountains and automata were displayed, showing historical & biblical figures and spectacles. The illustrations, according to Franken implicitly after C. van de Passe (who lived also at the Looiersgracht at the time), show the sights and spectacles of this labyrinth. The lower corner of the title-page and the first plate gone. Very good copy of this rare souvenir.

        4 eigenh. Briefe mit U.

      München und Kassel, 1877-1883. - Zusammen 11 SS. auf Doppelblättern. 8vo. An den namentlich nicht genannten Schriftsteller Balduin Groller: "Wider meine [.] Hoffnung erhielt ich heute mein Schauspiel von [Heinrich] Laube zurück [.] Ich schicke Ihnen [.] zunächst das verurtheilte Stück, damit Sie sehen was ich aus dem Stoffe gemacht habe und zugleich beurtheilen, ob ich nun verdiente Zurückweisung erfahren habe [.]" (Br. v. 19. X. 1877). Des weiteren über den gemeinsam verbrachten Abend "in Ihrem trauten Familienkreise" (undat. Br.) und über den Maler Wilhelm Trübner (ebd. sowie im Brief vom 26. IV. 1882: Von allen Seiten gehen mir die günstigsten Beurtheilungen über d. Trübner’sche Zeichnung [.] zu [.]"). - "Ihr neues Buch ‘Weltliche Geschichten’ [recte: ‘Weltliche Dinge. Neue Geschichten] ist mir gestern zu meiner lebhaften Freude zugekommen u. ich habe dasselbe schon zu lesen begonnen. Ueber den Eindruck werde ich ein getreues Referat niederschreiben und es jedenfalls noch rechtzeitig vor Weihnachten zur Veröffentlichung bringen. Hervorragende Zeitungen stehen mir unterschiedlich offen [.]" (Br. v. 28. XI. 1883). - Greif, als Sohn eines Regierungsdirektors in Speyer geboren, diente 1857-67 in der bayerischen Armee und lebte anschließend als freier Schriftsteller in München und zeitweise auch in Wien. "Seine Dramen verarbeiteten häufig historische Themen. Für sein patriotisches Schauspiel 'Ludwig der Bayer oder Der Streit von Mühldorf' (1891) errichteten ihm die Bürger von Kraiburg/Inn ein eigenes Festspielhaus. Aus Greifs lyrischem Werk, das seit 1870 zunehmend patriotische Züge trug, ragt die Naturlyrik hervor, die in einfacher Strophen-, Reim- und Versform sowie in volksliedhaftem Ton geschrieben ist" (DBE). Vgl. auch Kosch I, 725. - Der aus Arad stammende Balduin Groller (d. i. Adalbert Goldscheider, 1848-1916) leitete von 1886-92 die ‘Neue Illustrierte Zeitung’ und seit 1895 das ‘Neue Wiener Journal’ und war "perhaps the most capable and inventive of the Austrian detective-story writers: his Detektiv Dagobert is perhaps Austria's nearest approach to Sherlock Holmes" (Willard Huntington Wright, The Great Detective Stories. In: The art of the mystery story. Edited by Howard Haycraft. New York, Simon and Schuster, 1946). Als Feuilletonist und humoristischer Erzähler ebenso bekannt wie vielgelesen, veröffentlichte er über dreißig Novellen und Romane, war Vizepräsident des Journalisten- und Schriftstellerverbandes "Concordia" und Mitglied der Kunstkommission des österreichischen Kultusministeriums. Vgl. auch Kosch I, 696. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
