      G. Masson, Éditeur, Libraire de l'Académie de Médecine 1884-1893, Paris - Ab Bd.4, 1885 zeichnen folgende, neu hinzugekommene Mitherausgeber: Friedel, Charles; Becquerel, Alexandre Edmond (bis Bd.23, 1891); Mascart, Eleuthère Elie Nicolas. 30 fadengeheftete, goldgeprägte, Maroquin-Halbleder-Handeinbände der Zeit mit verstärkten Ecken, goldgeprägter Rückenbeschriftung, marmoriertem Deckelpapier, marmorierten Vor- und Nachsatzpapieren, dreiseitigem Sprengschnitt und Lesebändchen. Der 28. Band als kaschierter Halbleineneinband ohne marmorierte Deckelpapiere, offenbar wurde das Buch zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt durch einen Buchbinder neu gebunden. Mit Illustrationen im Text sowie einigen Tafeln und Falttafeln, diese vereinzelt gestochen bzw. als Lichtdruck. Die Einbände in unterschiedlicher Ausprägung berieben, wenige Rücken mit deutlichem Abrieb bzw. kleinem Durchrieb, Kopfschnitte alle altersgemäß mit deutlicher Nachdunkelung, nahezu alle Bände mit Bibliotheksstempel auf Vortitel- oder Titelblättern, das Papier altersgemäß allg. nachgedunkelt, einige Seiten mit Knick oder kleinem Einriss oder Fleck, diverse Bände mit teils klaffender Bindung am Vorsatzpapier bzw. Inhaltsverzeichnis am Buchende. Die Bücher der 6. Folge wurden offenbar nicht mehr ganz so hochwertig gebunden oder befanden sich häufiger im Gebrauch als die der Vorgänger-Reihen, so wurden auch bei Bd.14 zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt die Buchdeckel (fachgerecht) erneuert, dieses Buch nun mit schlichten Deckeln ohne marmorierte Deckelpapiere und Vorsätze sowie mit gestempeltem Fußschnitt. Das Lesebändchen des 15. Bandes lose im Buch, sehr selten einzelne Bleistiftunterstreichungen, vereinzelt auch Stempel auf Nachsatzpapier. Insgesamt befinden sich die Bücher der sechsten Serie des von Lavoisier mitbegründeten und bis 1815 unter dem Titel "Annales de Chimie" erschienenen bekannten französichen Fachorgans der Chemie in altersgemäß gutem Erhaltungszustand. In dieser Vollständigkeit äusserst selten. Die Annales de Chimie et de Physique ist eine naturwissenschaftliche Zeitschrift, die in Paris im Jahre 1789 unter ihrem ursprünlichen dem Titel Annales de Chimie gegründet wurde. Einer der frühen Editoren war der französische Chemiker Antoine Laurent de Lavoisier (1743–1794). (wikipedia) In französischer Sprache. 17565 pages. 8° [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        HEIDI'S EARLY EXPERIENCES. And: HEIDI'S FURTHER EXPERIENCES

      1884. [the rare two-volume edition] A Story for Children and for Those Who Love Children. Illustrated. [In Two Volumes.] London: W. Swan Sonnenschein & Co., n.d. [1884]. Original dark green [Vol II lighter green] cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt, all page edges gilt. First English Edition of this children's classic, made further famous by the 1937 film starring Shirley Temple. The Swiss author Johanna Spyri (née Heusser, 1827-1901) wrote children's tales as a way of recapturing her youth once she had married a lawyer and moved from the countryside to Zurich. (She wrote this one in just four weeks.) This London edition was published in the same year that the author's husband and only child died.~The original edition, in German, was published in 1880-1881; in 1882 or 1883, her German publisher did publish an English translation of the first volume -- now practically impossible to find. The American edition by Cupples Upham of Boston came out in 1885, two-volumes-in-one; since this London edition is quite rare, the Boston edition is the first generally-obtainable one today. (It has recently been discovered that there was an 1830 German book titled "Adelheide: das Mädchen vom Alpengebirge," with which Johanna Spyri had probably been familiar as a child -- and from which she apparently borrowed freely, five decades later.)~The binding for this tale is a beautiful pictorial one, showing on the front cover the five-year-old orphan Heidi being left by her Aunt Dete with her curmudgeonly grandfather, and on the spine Heidi with a goat. Oddly, both bindings read "Heidi's Early Experiences," even though that is not the title of the second volume -- probably a cost-saving measure by this minor London publisher (of German heritage) who specialized in books on sociology and politics.~These volumes are in bright, close-to-fine condition, with scarcely any soil or wear (a few leaves stand slightly proud, but both volumes are tight and secure, the original endpapers not even cracked; in Vol I there are occasional small rust-stains from the staples used to bind the book, as this title unfortunately came out during the brief unsuccessful experiment of using staples rather than string). This is the best copy to surface on the market in decades. Housed in a handsome morocco-backed slipcase with twin chemises.
