      - 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.

        Der Weltteil Australien...

      Leipzig and Prague: G. Freytag [and] Tempsky, 1882-, 1883. Four volumes, octavo, frontispieces in each volume, maps and other illustrations; original blindstamped green cloth. Influential German study of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. Karl Emil Jung, who had taught classics at Eton, emigrated to Australia in the 1850s, took part in several journeys into the interior, spent some years as a squatter, and worked as an educationalist including serving as Inspector of Schools for South Australia. He spent altogether more than twenty years in Australia, returning to Germany in the late-1870s where he wrote this extensive description of Australia and the Pacific with an audience of would-be German emigrants in mind. The book is divided into sections on: Australia and its native inhabitants; the Australian colonies including Tasmania; Melanesia, Polynesia; New Zealand; Micronesia.Jung became the German authority on Oceanic matters, and supplied information and articles on Australia and the Pacific to numerous periodicals, encyclopedias and text-books. His long stay in Australia had made him uniquely placed to give a comprehensive description of life downunder, and his book is very well illustrated with woodcuts, many of them full-page, of cities, landscapes, native peoples and natural features.

        Treasure Island

      London: Cassell & Company, Limited,, 1883. Octavo. Original red cloth (the book was issued in various coloured cloth bindings), titles to spine gilt, covers blocked in blind with a single line border, black coated endpapers. Frontispiece map with captions printed in red, brown and blue, with tissue guard. 1901 catalogue details tipped in to head of front free endpaper verso, near-contemporary bookplate to the front pastedown, and ownership inscription to front free endpaper verso, another, contemporary, to head of half-title. Spine rolled and faded, light soiling to boards, light wear to tips, foxing to edges; a very good copy. First edition, first impression, with the following points: "dead man's chest" not capitalised on pages 2 or 7; the first letter of "vain" broken in the last line, page 40; the "a" not present in line 6, page 63; the "7" overstamped in the pagination on page 127; the full stop not present following "opportunity" in line 20, page 178; with "worse" in line 3, page 197; and the first state October advertisements, coded 5R-1083 (some copies have July and November advertisements, both of which were likely used later by the binder). Treasure Island was originally written as a pendant to the now-famous treasure map the author had drawn to entertain his young stepson "on a rainy day in the Scottish Highlands" (Grolier), and was serialised in Young Folks magazine from October 1881 to January 1882 under the pseudonym "Captain George North". It was only with the appearance of this first edition, however, that it received any kind of critical attention, and "was immediately hailed by critics as a classic".

Thirty plates to illustrate the concepts outlined in William Ware's famous "Modern Perspective: A Treatise upon the Principles and Practice of Plane and Cylindrical Perspective," copyright 1882. In the preface Ware (of Columbia University) writes: "A new treatment of so old a theme would be uncalled for, did not even the elaborate treatises seem to be deficient in comprehensiveness and scientific simplicity, while the practical handbooks fail to make the reader acquainted with some methods that are found in experience to be among the most convenient and practical of all." He further observes "The plates that accompany the text have taken, altogether, quite as much time and labor in their preparation as the text itself..."

        The Cultivation of the Olive.

      Hastings: J. Parsons, 1883. Octavo, 36 pp. (last blank), illustrated, limp cloth wrappers with printed titling label, as issued. Scarce treatise on olive cultivation by John Harris Browne (1817-1904), a physician who accompanied Sturt to the interior in 1844-1845. Some credit the survival of the expedition to Browne's capability in arduous circumstances.Brown arrived in South Australia in 1840, and turned away from medicine towards pastoralism and agricultural projects. Much of the information in this booklet is drawn from practical colonial experience (for example, Browne notes that many of the common diseases of the Olive tree in Europe are absent in South Australia). He writes in the preface 'the following notes of the cultivation of the olive have been collected, chiefly from the most recent French and Italian books on the subject, and are printed on the hope that more knowledge of the great value so justly attached to that tree in Europe may induce my fellow Colonists to largely extend its cultivation to South Australia.'.

        Fritz August Breuhaus de Groot [Gebundene Ausgabe] Fritz A. Breuhaus de Groot (Autor), Herbert Eulenberg (Autor), Max Osborn (Autor) Catharina Berents Reihe/Serie: Neue Werkkunst Nachwort: Catharina B

      Der Architekt und Innenraumgestalter Fritz August Breuhaus de Groot (1883-1960), studierte an den Technischen Hochschulen in Darmstadt und Stuttgart sowie in Düsseldorf an der Bauakademie bei Peter Behrens. Er arbeitete als selbständiger Architekt in Bonn, Düsseldorf, Berlin und Köln und durchlebte wie viele seiner Kollegen eine Zeit, die von starken politischen, kulturellen und stilistischen Wechseln gekennzeichnet war. Angefangen mit der Zackenmoderne der zwanziger Jahre über die neue Monumentalität der dreißiger Jahre bis hin zu Nierentisch und Panorama-Fenster der fünfziger Jahre stellte er sich allen Stilrichtungen und Bauaufgaben. Von seinem Freund und Mentor, dem Darmstädter Verleger Alexander Koch, protegiert (u.a. in den Zeitschriften Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration und Innendekoration), erbaute Breuhaus 1925 dessen Privatvilla in Darmstadt. Als Innenarchitekt stattete er nicht nur seine eigenen Bauten aus, sondern schuf auch die Inneneinrichtungen von Luxuslinern (u.a. der Bremen) für den Norddeutschen Lloyd er gestaltete das Interieur von Hotels, Läden, Schlaf- und Speisewagen, Flugzeugen der Heinkel-Werke oder der Deutschen Lufthansa, und er entwarf die Ausstattung der Zeppelin-Luftschiffe LZ 128 und LZ 129. Wenn Breuhaus auch Verwaltungsgebäude, Mehrfamilienhäuser und Siedlungen baute, so war er doch in erster Linie ein Architekt der (Neu-)Reichen und Etablierten. Seine Baugattung war die Villa, und seine Kunden verkehrten in den Kreisen der High Society. Als ein Gegner der Typisierung des Wohnens vermochte er sich allen Wünschen und Launen seiner Auftraggeber anzupassen und hinterließ auf diese Weise ein Werk, das von einem hohen Maß an Flexibilität und Variabilität gekennzeichnet ist: Allem Schema Feind, überrascht Breuhaus uns immer wieder durch den Reichtum seiner Phantasie und die Unbeirrtheit seines Geschmacks. Bei aller Unterschiedlichkeit tragen seine Bauten deutlich das Signum des Meisters, verraten sie alle seine Handschrift: sie sind - auf den ersten Blick schon erkennbar - Breuhäuser. (Cornelius Witt, 1961). Das Nachwort zu der 1929 in der Reihe Neue Werkkunst erschienenen Werkmonographie setzt sich mit der Bedeutung des Architekten Fritz August Breuhaus kritisch auseinander und verfolgt sein Schaffen bis in die fünfziger Jahre.

        Der Erste und Zweite Kongress des Deutschen Schachbundes

      Leipzig: Verlag von Veit & Co, 1883. viii+228 pages with diagrams and tables lacks frontispiece. Octavo (8" x 5 1/2") bound in 3/4 leather with black boards and gilt lettering to spine. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:5210) First edition.The city of Leipzig was the birthplace of the Deutschen Schachbund on July 18th, 1877. Over the next two years sixty-two chess clubs would become members of the foundling chess federation. Hofrat von Gottschall became the chairman of the federation and Hermann Zwanzig was made the general secretary. The Deutschen Schachbund reconvened at the Schützenhaus on July 15th, 1879. To commemorate the meeting, a Schachkongresse master's tournament was organized. This inaugural event was largely an internal affair. Three invitations went out to Austrian chess masters: Berthold Englisch, Karl Pitschel, and Adolf Schwarz. The remaining nine seats went to German chess masters: Louis and Wilfried Paulsen, Max Bier, Ernst Flechsig, Fritz Riemann, Emil Schallopp, Arnold Schottlaender, Johannes Von Minckwitz, and Carl Wemmers. The field and format were extremely limited, with two rounds being played on most days of the tournament. Records have been such that ten of the sixty-six games have not survived to the present day, and therefore they have been omitted from this collection. However, what began with the Deutschen Schachbund in Leipzig in 1879 would in the next two years evolve into one of the stronger and more widely recognized of international chess competitions the world would see over the course of the latter 19th century. Berthold Englisch won this event with 9 wins out of his eleven games.Condition:Rebound in three quarter leather, lacks frontispiece portrait else a very good copy of a scarce tournament.

        The Chess Monthly

      London: Jas Wade, 1883-1884. iv+380 pages with illustrations, diagrams, tables, and index. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 6 1/4") bound in quarter brown leather with gilt lettering to spine and blue marbled boards. From the library of Dino Ruggieri. Volume V (5). (Betts: 7-25). First edition.The Chess Monthly of Great Britain was one of the first to give properly annotated games. The principal editor, Leopold Hoffer, was helped enormously by having J H Zukertort as co-editor until his death in 1888. There were four regular sections: news, annotated games, problems and endgames. In addition, Hoffer carried on a profoundly bitter feud with his one-time benefactor, Steinitz. This publication should not be confused with The Chess Monthly published in the United States which was short lived from 1857-1862 and edited by Fiske and Morphy.Dino Ruggieri was born in, Pigüé a small city in the Buenos Aires province, October 22, 1921. His parents were both Italians, natives of Porto D'Ascoli. In their early years in Argentina, the Ruggieri’s family lived in the country, located about 45 miles from Pigüé. The family was engaged in agriculture. When Ruggieri was 8, his father purchased a home in Pigüé, where he lived until 2008. In 1938 he was involved in an accident and he was transferred to Buenos Aires for recovery. This was the beginning of his hobby of chess, both as a player over the board and by correspondence, but as well as a major collector of chess materials. After his recovery he became a prominent local chess player and very good representative in postal chess, where he represented Argentina in matches against Italy, Yugoslavia, Holland and other countries. He was using the correspondence with his rivals to offer exchanges. Ruggieri was related to Mr Niemeijer and soon began exchanging materials and making important purchases. He also had frequent contacts with Gregorio Lastra, Normando Ivaldi, Gaspar Soria and Carlos De Veyga, all known collectors of chess. He died in 2009 in 2009 at the age of 88.Condition:Corners bumped, Ruggieri's stamp to front end paper, some foxing else a very good copy of a scarce item.

        Life on the Mississippi

      Boston: James R Osgood and Company, 1883. 624 pages with frontispiece and over 300 black and white illustrations. Royal Octavo (9" x 6 1/4") Issued in the original brown cloth with gilt lettering and pictorial on spine and black and gilt lettering with pictorial on cover. Lacks the illustration of Twain's head in flames on page 441, and the corrected "St Charles Hotel" on page 443. Simultaneously published in 1883 in the United States and Great Britain, the book is the first submitted to a publisher as a typewritten manuscript (BAL 34II) Second state of the first American edition. Twain once remarked that he considered this book his masterpiece, the book that would outlive his other works and endure as a classic. Of course, Twain once defined a classic as a book everybody talks about but nobody ever reads. At first glance it seems to be a travel book, but it is really a highly readable discursive autobiographical account of Twain's boyhood and his region, and of a culture that radically changed since he left home 30 years earlier. It makes good reading as background for Huck Finn. The only thing that is known of the printing history is what Twain wrote in 1891: that 50,000 copies were printed and bound, but only 32,000 sold. Implication is that the unsold copies were reissued by Charles L Webster between 1884 and 1891 when he took over Osgood's stock. Copies are found with Osgood's sheets and Webster cancel title-page, in Webster bindings, dated 1888 and 1891. As a subscription book, this book was similar in size to the hefty tomes of the American Publishing Company, but the handsome pictorial brown cloth binding ranks with the binding of Huck Finn as one of the best on a Twain first edition. It could be ordered with gilt edges, in full sheep, three-quarter morocco, and three-quarter calf. (MacDonald: Firsts.)This is a memoir by Mark Twain of his days as a steamboat pilot on the Mississippi River before the American Civil War, and also a travel book, recounting his trip along the Mississippi River from St. Louis to New Orleans many years after the War. The book begins with a brief history of the river as reported by Europeans and Americans, beginning with the Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto in 1542. It continues with anecdotes of Twain's training as a steamboat pilot, as the 'cub' (apprentice) of an experienced pilot, Horace E. Bixby. He describes, with great affection, the science of navigating the ever-changing Mississippi River in a section that was first published in 1876, entitled "Old Times on the Mississippi". Although Twain was actually 21 when he began his training, he uses artistic license to make himself seem somewhat younger, referring to himself as a "fledgling" and a "boy" who "ran away from home" to seek his fortune on the river, and playing up his own callowness and naïveté. In the second half, Twain narrates his trip many years later on a steamboat from St. Louis to New Orleans. He describes the competition from railroads, and the new, large cities, and adds his observations on greed, gullibility, tragedy, and bad architecture. He also tells some stories that are most likely tall tales. In 1980 the book was adapted as a TV movie for American public television, with David Knell performing as Sam Clemens, and Robert Lansing as Horace Bixby, the steamboat pilot who mentored him. The film used many tall tales from the book, woven into a fictional narrative. In 2010, Life on the Mississippi was adapted as a stage musical, with book and lyrics by Douglas M. Parker and music by Denver Casado. It was produced that year in Kansas City, Missouri and Door County, Wisconsin. Condition:Recased in original spine, some occasional foxing and finger soiling, one signature slightly sprung else a very good and bright copy.

        Fine original portrait drawing of the composer in half-profile by the Viennese artist Benedikt Dolbin (1883-1971)...

      Signed by the artist with initials and with the composer's name to upper right corner. Undated, but most probably Vienna, ca. 1920. Executed in black pencil on the blank side of a sheet of stationery carrying the letterhead of Universal Edition in Vienna. 286 x 222 mm. "[Milhaud] was associated with the avant garde of the 1920s, whose abundant production reflects all musical genres. A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, his music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online. Dolbin (pseud. Fred Pollack, 1883-1971) was born in Vienna and educated there. Trained as an engineer, he subsequently studied musical composition with Arnold Schoenberg and became a member of the Viennese group "Die Bewegung." He commenced drawing portraits of leading artistic personalities from ca. 1917 onwards for Viennese newspapers and journals. Because of his Jewish origins, Dolbin's work was banned in Austria in 1935, at which time he emigrated to the United States....

      - Alden & Landis 699/146; Church 783; for the bindery: Du Bois, Historical essay on the art of bookbinding, 1883, p. 35. Third edition known to survive in the original Latin of a letter on the success of spreading the Gospel among the indigenous American Indians, written by Increase Mather, the second of three generations of famous Puritan ministers in Boston and rector of Harvard College, addressed to Johannes Leusden, Professor of Hebrew at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands. The letter is dated from Boston, 12 July 1687. The present Utrecht edition adds letters to Leusden on the progress of spreading the Gospel among the populations in Ceylon and the East Indies, written by Herman Specht (1684; 1688), Adrianus de Mey (1690; 1692) and Franciscus Valentijn (1686). These additional letters appear here in the first edition of the original Latin known to survive.The work is bound by the Bradstreet Bindery in New York. John M. Bradstreet (1815-1863) established one of the first credit rating companies and they apparently came into bookbinding through their publishing activities, but when Henry and his siblings took over the firm "fine binding" was largely a European phenomena, William Matthews in New York being the only major American exponent. They carried out work for J.P. Morgan, the Grolier Club and other bibliophiles. In 1883, Du Bois praised their bindings higher than any others in America, noting their "solidity, strength and squareness of workmanship . Certainly none can put a varied coloured morocco coat on a book, and gild it with greater perfection in choice of ornament and splendor of gold, and with greater care, taste and success, .". He even hints that they might excel the French and English, then regarded as the best binders. Church's copy of the present edition was also bound by Bradstreet, but in green morocco.Slightly browned, but still in very good condition. The binding has been expertly and unobtrusively rebacked, with the original backstrip laid down, and the corners are scuffed, but the binding is otherwise very good.
