        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".

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.

        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 & Quincy, the Denver & 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 & 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.

      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.

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.

Julius Cornelius Schaarwächter (1847-1904) was one of the most prestigious photographic ateliers in imperial Berlin between the 1870s and about 1900.

        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..."
