        Under Minot's Ledge Light

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1884. Colour-printed lithograph, removed from original mount, very fine condition. Frederic Cozzens was one of America's greatest marine artists. Like nearly every other great marine artist, he was thoroughly acquainted with every aspect of ship construction and the art of sailing. He is best known for his paintings of great American yachts of the latter half of the 19th century, which were commissioned by many of New York's leading yachtsmen. In 1884, he expanded his audience by making a series of lithographs of his paintings. The first and most brilliant series was American Yachts, Their Clubs and Races from which this print comes.

Fortuna, designed by the Poillon Brothers in 1883, broke a record in her maiden race making her the most notable in this image. The schooner Tempest was built by Harrington in 1872, the keel sloop Viva was built by Dyer in 1874 and the keel yawl White Cap built by Adams and Story in 1878. Jacobsen, Frederic Cozzens. Marine Painter, New York: 1982.

        A History of North American Birds . Land Birds . [With:] Memoirs of the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard College. Vol. XII. The Water Birds of North America

      Little Brown and Company, Boston 1884 - (10 1/2 x 8 inches). [Land Birds:] 64 hand-coloured lithographs and numerous illustrations. Extra-illustrated with 36 hand-coloured lithographs after Ridgway. [Water Birds:] 493 illustrations (including 332 finely hand-coloured). Uncut. Publisher's uniform green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt Rare deluxe, coloured and extra-illustrated editions of Baird, Brewer and Ridgway's classics of American ornithology. "This work contains a description of the birds of North America north of Mexico, including Greenland and Alaska. The focus of this work is an account of the life history of the species, to which is added information about the geographical distribution of the birds and a brief descripion of the eggs and the individual species. Baird and Ridgway supplied the descriptive parts of the work, while Dr. Brewer dealt with the habits of the birds" (Anker). Little Brown & Co. advertisements confirm that their Land Birds was issued with 64 plates (uncolored at $10 per volume, or coloured at $20 per volume). However, a letter from the librarian at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia published in the October 1902 issue of the Auk reveals the existence of the present deluxe issue of the Land Birds, with additional hand-coloured plates after Ridgway: "While the existence of an edition of this work with these plates may be known to many ornithologists, yet there is no printed record of such, as far as the present writer is aware. No mention of these plates is made in Coues's 'Bibliography' nor in the several reviews of the 'Land Birds' to which I have had access. Dr. C. W. Richmond informs me that Mr. Ridgway has never seen a copy of the work with these plates although he has some loose plates in his possession" (letter from William J. Fox published in The Auk , October 1902). Neither Nissen, Anker, Zimmer nor Sitwell mention this deluxe issue. A contemporary advertisement (in an 1882 edition of The Scientist's International Directory), however, reveals that this deluxe extra-illustrated issue "beautifully colored by hand" was available for $75 in cloth (as here) or $95 in full morocco. Little Brown & Co. advertisements confirm that their Water Birds was published in both uncolored ($10 per volume) and colored ($30 per volume) issues, describing the latter: "In the hand colored edition of the Water Birds all the illustrations of heads are most exquisitely executed in water colors from patterns prepared by Mr. Ridgway." The in-text illustrations are indeed exceptionally well hand-coloured, with the eyes the the birds finished with gum arabic. (See the advertisement in the 31 May 1884 issue of The Literary World, advertising volume one as just completed and projecting volume two to be published in September). We have only once before encountered a colored issue (the Bradley Martin copy), and considering the cost and labor involved, must have been done in limited numbers. "One of the great works on North American ornithology and for many years a standard reference . the first major work on North American birds to supersede Audubon's Ornithological Biography of 1831-39 as a comprehensive general source" (Ellis Collection). Nissen IVB 63 and 64; Anker 25; Sitwell, Fine Bird Books , page 75; Ellis Collection 137 and 140; Zimmer, p. 34-35. 2 works in 5 volumes (Land Birds, 3 vols; Water Birds, 2 vols), 4to [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Goldschnitt; berieben u. etwas bestoßen, Bezüge leicht wellig, Rückdeckel von Band 2 mit kleiner Wurmspur.

Von Drake bis um 1880 aktualisiert. Eindrucksvoll illustrierte Monographie zur Geschichte der indianischen Stammesgesellschaften in den Vereinigten Staaten. Der einzigartige Überblick über die indigenen Kulturtraditionen der USA fällt in die Endphase der Erschließung des kontinentalen Siedlungsgebiets, als das Vordringen der Weißen zur Verdrängung der Indianer in Reservate führte. Die Ausrottung großer Büffelherden zerstörte zwischen 1870 und 1890 die Lebensgrundlagen der meisten Prärieindianer. Die Apachen wurden 1886 unterworfen, die Sioux 1891 (im Jahr der 2. Auflage). Mit der Dezimierung der Indianer, auch durch Epidemien und Alkohol, ging eine starke Zunahme der weißen Bevölkerung einher. - Howes D 472; BM Compact ed. VII, 665, 527. - Gebräunt u. stellenw. stockfleckig. Die kolorierte Karte (pl. 70) rundum angeschnitten. Buchblock von Band 1 angeplatzt, in Band 2 ein freies Vorsatzbl. mit Eckabriß.

        Project zur Anlage einer Tramway Linie in der Babenberger Strasse und Mariahilfer Strasse bis zur Stift Gasse. Für die Bergfahrt. Mehrfach gefalteter, farbiger Manuskriptplan.

      Wien, Wiener Tramway-Gesellschaft, 1884. - Ca. 125 x 34 cm. Vgl. Czeike V, 469 f.- Von der Direktion der Wiener Tramway-Gesellschaft dem Magistrat vorgelegtes Projekt einer Verbindung der bereits bestehenden Ringlinie mit der Linie, die, von der Stiftgasse kommend, in die Mariahilferstrasse stadtauswärts führte. Die Linie mußte dabei das steilste Stück der Mariahilferstrasse bewältigen, und das mit Pferden. Seit 1863 hatten sich mehrere private Betriebe das lukrative Geschäft der neu entstehenden Pferde-Tramways geteilt und, nach ihrem Gutdünken, bestimmte Abschnitte der Stadt miteinander verbunden. Am 13. 11. 1867 schlossen sich die größten Betriebe zur Tramway-Gesellschaft zusammen, um ihre Interessen gegenüber der Gemeinde nachdrücklicher vertreten zu können. Diese Gesellschaft verteidigte erstaunlich lange ihre Interessen, auch gegen die beginnende Elektrifizierung. So hatte Berlin bereits 1881 eine erste öffentliche elektrische Strassenbahn, aber in Wien dauerte es zur Kommunalisierung unter Bürgermeister Lueger bis in den späten 90er Jahren. Der vorliegende Projektplan trägt unten rechts den Stempel der Wiener Tramway-Gesellschaft und die Unterschrift eines S. Schmid vom 18. Juni 1884, links oben die Aktenzahl 35309 des Magistrats, darunter den Stempel des Magistrats und den Vermerk "Wird genehmigt, Wien 30. August 1884", links unten den Eintrag "Vor Commission am 28. Juli 1884 vorgelegt, Wien 28. 7. 1884" und mehrere Unterschriften. Die neu zu errichtende Linie ist deutlich in der Strassenmitte eingezeichnet, links und rechts sind die bestehenden Häusergruppen in Umrissen in Rot eingezeichnet.- Titel gering fleckig und etw. angestaubt, sonst in gutem Erhaltungszustand. Die Ränder mit Leinenstreifen gegen Einrisse geschützt. Austriaca - WIEN

        Boston Daily Globe 1909. Stories of General Custer. Boston Evening Record 1884. Ryan Interviews Sitting Bull. Ryan Letters to Camp. An Original 103 page typed Manuscript

      . First Edition. Not Relevant. Very Good Condition. This document has been compiled by John M. Carroll. He has even gone so far as to insert hand drawn original illustrations which have been signed by D. D. Moore. The piece starts with Carroll telling some stories and giving some history on General Custer. Carroll introduces this by praising Custer and noting down his strengths such as 'He was quick to decide and quick to execute'. He then goes on to focus on Custer's early life in which he examines it closely, and then his rise to General at such a young age. Carroll writes in a really good biographical way to explain Custer's life and this information spans over 38 pages which include 3 hand drawn illustrations on card all stuck to the pages with cellotape.Next comes the section from Boston Evening Records 1884. Carroll reports that 'important and most interesting evidence has come into a Record reporter's hands.' Before Carroll explains what this is he recaps the events leading up to Custer's demise in the Battle of the Little Big Horn. Then follows a transcript of a meeting held between the Record reporter, John Ryan (a former soldier with Custer) and Sitting Bull. This is a very interesting piece of evidence and is a really good read. You will struggle to find something else like this as it is extremely rare. This transcript of the conversation covers 8 pages.Next follows some John Ryan letters. It is in these that Ryan is explaining his side of what happened during the fight and afterwards. There is then some questions put to Ryan from Camp which he answers. These letters and question and answers span over 57 pages and include a newspaper cutting, a card stuck onto the pages with cellotape and some photocopies of army paperwork. The card appears to be John Ryan's own. It has his name at the top, his ranks and divisions in the army, including his work with Custer against the KKK and other white supremacist groups in the South, followed by his career in the police force. It could be described as a form of 'memorium card' possibly published in celebration of his achievements, maybe for the 50th anniversary of the battle, the same year that Ryan died, 1926. John Ryan died on October 14th 1926, at 29 Auburndale Avenue, West Newton, MA, which incidentally was the house where he was born.Carroll doesn't provide a conclusion or summary to this huge piece of work but does include a lot of original and new information that may not have been seen elsewhere. This documentation really is a one of a kind. Not only does it include an eye witness account to what happened in the fight but it is also illustrated and well researched. The format is Imperial 8.5" x 11" and there are 103 loose pages. The pages are not annotated but appear to have been printed, not type written. The condition is Fine and even the card illustrations sellotaped to the papers are not damaged in any way. The papers have been stored in a brown envelope which has a split pin fastening on the back with the hand written words on the front: 'M.S.S. for Boston Daily Globe 1909. Stories of General Cuter. Boston Evening Record 1884. Ryan Interviews Sitting Bull. Ryan Letters to Camp. Compiled by John M. Carroll.'John M. Carroll died in the summer of 1990 and left behind a vast body of work that added greatly to the scholarly study of Custer, and his writings should be considered the equal of Graham, Kuhlman, Brininstool, et al. Carroll devoted much of his life to the study of George Armstrong Custer, and wrote or edited many books on the subject. On his death his collection passed to his long time friend and associate Robert Aldrich, and it was finally sold at auction around 1996 by PBA. Material from his collection is now scarce on the open market, and in particular his own manuscripts, notes, and typescripts. Quantity Available: 1. Category: General Custer; Inventory No: 188473. .

        Over the Cape May Course

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1884. Colour-printed lithograph, mounted on card. Very good condition apart from a 3/4" loss in the right margin. Frederic Cozzens was one of America's greatest marine artists. Like nearly every other great marine artist, he was thoroughly acquainted with every aspect of ship construction and the art of sailing. He is best known for his paintings of great American yachts of the latter half of the 19th century, which were commissioned by many of New York's leading yachtsmen. In 1884, he expanded his audience by making a series of lithographs of his paintings. The first and most brilliant series was American Yachts, Their Clubs and Races from which this print comes. Over the Cape May Course depicts a tense moment during the Regatta of 1873 in which the schooners Clio, Enchantress, Dreadnaught , the working schooners Sharpshooter and Reindeer , and the pilotboat Negus race neck and neck down the Cape May Course, south of the Jersey shallows. Beginning off Owl's Head, New York Harbour, continuing around the lightship in the Five Fathoms Bank off Cape May, New Jersey, and finishing at the Sandy Hook lightship, the Regatta was a spirited 300 mile race from which the Enchantress emerged victorious. Jacobsen, Frederic Cozzens. Marine Painter , New York: 1982.

        Leaves of Grass

      Philadelphia: David McKay, No. 23 South Ninth Street, 1884. Early Reprint. Hardcover. Fine-. Reprint of the Rees Welsh edition of 1882 (which, in turn, reprinted the sixth, banned edition published in Boston), with integral title page; in effect, the second Philadelphia edition. 8vo: 382pp, single leaf with Samuel Hollyer 's steel-engraved portrait of Whitman and tissue guard inserted following p. 28. Publisher's finely woven mustard-yellow S cloth (BAL binding A), spine and upper cover lettered and decorated in gilt, mottled blue vein-pattern end papers. A superb example, about Fine, binding square and tight, gilt undiminished, contents clean, fresh, and bright. BAL 21630. Myerson . Grolier American 100, 67. ¶ In June, 1882, Whitman signed an agreement with the Philadelphia publisher Rees Welsh & Co. to bring out Leaves of Grass using the Osgood plates of the sixth, banned edition. (On March 1, the District Attorney of Boston advised James R. Osgood & Co. that Leaves of Grass fell "within the provisions of the Public Statutes respecting obscene literature" and advised Osgood to "withdraw" and "suppress" the book. Osgood asked Whitman to expunge the offending passages; Whitman, by and large, refused, and Osgood "decline[d] to further circulate the book.") That same year, in October, after Rees Welsh had issued the first Philadelphia edition, David McKay, a young Scottish immigrant, took over the business from Rees Welsh and became Whitman's friend, strong supporter, and publisher. Two years later, McKay reprinted the Rees Welsh edition of 1882 with new title page and binding to match the banned Osgood edition. "Whitman's name appears twice on the binding, once in a gold stamped framed facsimile autograph on the front cover, and again on the spine, where the name forms the very ground of the 'Leaves of Grass' that appear above his name in both words and visual emblems, as if the leaves are literally growing from Walt Whitman. . . . And on down the spine is Whitman's beloved hand and butterfly emblem, now with the butterfly-soul appearing on the verge of taking leave of the body-hand: Whitman, still suffering the aftereffects of a stroke, was now convinced his life was near its end. The odd yellowish-olive cast of the cover cloth suggests autumn now instead of the summer-green of the early editions, and the tall grass on the spine looks like hay ready for the harvest. . . . Whitman never again created a new edition of Leaves, though he did add two 'annexes' and repackaged the book in different ways." (Folsom, Whitman Making Books/Books Making Whitman) N.B.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Paris: Bjornstjerne Bjornson, 1884. First edition. No binding.. Fine. A Very Good ORIGINAL AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED BY NOBELIST BJORNSTJERNE BJORNSON dated November 2, 1884 and written on a single sheet of paper measuring approximately 8 3/4 inches across and 7 1/8 inches high, having a vertical center fold to create four smaller pages. Having split at least in part along the center fold, the letter has been neatly repaired. While the letter does not name a specific addressee, we speculate that it was written to Louis von Saville, playwright at the Wallner Theater in Berlin. In the letter, Bjornson, in thrilled tone, extolls the skill of his son Bjørn Bjørnson -- a stage actor and theater director -- referring to a production of Shakespeare's Richard the Third at the Christiana Theater, then considered Norway's finest stage theater and of which his son was to become the artistic leader in the next year -- from which position he went on to become the first theatre director at Norway's National Theatre. He described his son as the hero of the day, stating that his Richard the Third had taken the audience by storm and that his talent surprised everyone, including Bjornson. Bjornson goes on to criticize the translator Lange, describing him as a rouge and liar. Considered (with Henrik Ibsen, Jonas Lie, and Alexander Kielland) to be one of the four greatest Norwegian writers, Bjornstjerne Bjornson won the 1903 Nobel Prize in Literature "as a tribute to his noble, magnificent and versatile poetry, which has always been distinguished by both the freshness of its inspiration and the rare purity of its spirit", making him the the first Norwegian win the Prize. (Bjornson - the father and Nobelist - also is celebrated for writing the lyrics to Norway's National Anthem. We seldom see letters of this length from Bjornson.

        THE BEAR-WORSHIPPERS OF YEZO AND THE ISLAND OF KARAFUTO (SAGHALIN) OR THE ADVENTURES OF THE JEWETT FAMILY AND THEIR FRIEND OTO NAMBO

      Boston & New York: Lee and Shepard / Charles T. Dillingham, 1884. Large, thick octavo. Half gilt calf and marbled boards, pictorial panels of original binding bound in. Frontis and illustrations. A few incidents of marginal spotting, otherwise a very good copy. First edition. A superb association copy, inscribed by the author to American Orientalist and modernist literary influence, Ernest Fenollosa, utilizing Fenollosa's Japanese honorific: "Mast. Kano Fenollosa with the affectionate remembrances of the Author Edward Greey 20 E 17 St New York Oct. 20 1883[?]." After serving with the British military during the Second Opium War, Greey (1835-1888) traveled to Japan in the diplomatic service and immersed himself in the country's language, culture and art. In 1868, he settled in New York, opening a shop specializing in Japanese art and antiquities, and subsidizing that income as a writer. In addition to formal works such as the present, which afford a valuable insight into aspects of Japanese history and culture from a Westerner's point of view, Greey was a prolific contributor to the pulp press and boy's papers, often under pseudonyms. He took his own life in 1888 under mysterious circumstances. As a somewhat older contemporary of Fenollosa, he would no doubt have ample reason and opportunity to make his acquaintance, either in the U.S. or during travels back to Japan on business. Beyond his considerable importance as one of the preeminent Orientalists of the last quarter of the 19th century, Fenollosa left an indelible influence on Ezra Pound and W.B. Yeats, who worked mightily to edit his unpublished manuscripts and notes and disseminate his ideas.

        By Sou' West Spit

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1884. Colour-printed lithograph, removed from mount, very fine condition. Frederic Cozzens was one of America's greatest marine artists. Like nearly every other great marine artist, he was thoroughly acquainted with every aspect of ship construction and the art of sailing. He is best known for his paintings of great American yachts of the latter half of the 19th century, which were commissioned by many of New York's leading yachtsmen. In 1884, he expanded his audience by making a series of lithographs of his paintings. The first and most brilliant series was American Yachts, Their Clubs and Races from which this print comes. By Sou' West Spit depicts "an excursion of the fleet on Decoration Day showing Class D and Class E sloops and schooners. These include Roamer, Crocodile, Clytie, Grayling and Fanita . One of the most popular races for cabin yachts began at an imaginary line between club steamer and Fort Wadsworth, went to Buoy Number Ten on the South West Spit, thence and around Buoy Number Eight and a Half thence to and around Sandy Hook lightship and returned over the same course. It was a thirty-seven mile run of good, inside yachting work." (Jacobsen , page 79) Jacobsen, Frederic Cozzens. Marine Painter , New York: 1982.

        Mr. Winnecke's Explorations During 1883

      C.E. Bristow, Government Printer, August, Adelaide 1884 - Foolscap folio, 16 pp., large folding map measuring 1240 x 825 mm. (closed tear now expertly repaired), a fine copy in polished half calf by Sangorski with crimson morocco label and gilt lettering. Scarce report commissioned by the South Australian parliament, here accompanied with the large desirable map of the arid interior at the juncture of the Queensland, South Australia and the Northern Territory.The map is captioned "Plan Shewing Explorations made by Mr. Winnecke". At well over a square metre in size, its scale and detail is an impressive testament to the skill of the lithographic printers employed by the Surveyor General's Office in Adelaide. Details of geographical features, routes, water sources and the like are printed in black, while the vast parallel dune system running southwards from the Northern Territory is lithographed in sepia, so capturing the enormity of this landscape. As is often the case with parliamentary publications of this nature, the cost of printing is provided below the drop title and shows that production of this map exceeded £37, a considerable sum at the time.Charles Winnecke (1856-1902) entered the South Australian survey department in 1873, and is best remembered as leader of the Horn scientific expedition of 1894. This report publishes his journey commencing in late July 1883, a privately funded expedition equipped with camels seeking viable pasture around the Queensland border. 'The expedition, which started at the Sandringham homestead and finished at Palparara, crossed vast waterless tracts of the eastern and northeastern Simpson Desert, at one time travelling more than 440 kilometres over high sandhills without finding water. The expedition achieved little, save only to confirm that no viable pastoral land existed in the region.'Winnecke collected plants of interest during his journey and the final two pages of this report comprise a list prepared by Baron von Mueller. As a result of this expedition and similar forays in following years, Winnecke was awarded membership of the Royal Geographical Society. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Ramona

      1884 - JACKSON, Helen H[unt]. Ramona. A Story. Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1884. Octavo, original gilt-stamped green cloth, floral-patterned endpapers. $1600.First edition of Jackson’s most popular novel, a landmark work set in Southern California that is the “first novel about the the region ever published,” in original gilt-stamped cloth.Helen Hunt Jackson’s “dedication to the cause of justice for Indian tribes resulted in a well-researched exposé of Indian mistreatment published in 1881 as A Century of Dishonor.” When this and other of “her nonfiction writings did not initiate the reforms that Jackson sought, she said of Ramona, ‘I am going to write a novel, in which will be set forth some Indian experiences in a way to move people’s hearts” (ANB). To writer Michael Dorris, Jackson “incorporated in her own work not only the Southern California locales of her recent experience, but many of the names, events, and specific occurrences she had witnessed and heard about… much of the crucial action in Ramona was taken whole from real life” (Introduction, Ramona). “The novel’s literary presence can still be felt…. Ramona has also taken an important place in the literary history of Southern California [as] the first novel about the region ever published… Jackson created the first figures in a long line of… heroes who populate the later Southern California fiction of writers as diverse as Nathanael West, Evelyn Waugh, Thomas Pynchon and Joan Didion” (Phillips, Helen Hunt Jackson, 3). Less than a year after Ramona’s publication, Jackson died in San Francisco. With four pages of rear advertisements. Without original dust jacket, rarely found. BAL 10456. Text generally fine with only tiny bit of margin loss to one leaf (27) not affecting text, cloth-gilt lovely. A highly desirable near-fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1884. Colour-printed lithograph, mounted on card. Very good condition apart from a few small brown spots in the lower left and right sides of the image. Frederic Cozzens was one of America's greatest marine artists. Like nearly every other great marine artist, he was thoroughly acquainted with every aspect of ship construction and the art of sailing.

It pictures three of the participating yachts, the Fleetwing , Henrietta , and Vesta , racing head to head after having recently embarked from the starting point at Sandy Hook, which is visible in the right distance, on a Tuesday, December 1866.
