        Early Experiences of Life in South Australia and an Extended Colonial History

      Adelaide: E, S, Wigg & Son, 1884. Octavo, plates and maps; fine, bright and unopened in publisher's decorated cloth. Overlooked publication on the exploration of Northern Australia. Second and best edition, including several exploration journals not in the first and not elsewhere available.Bull arrived in Adelaide in May 1838 as a settler, started a land and stock agency, and finally turned to farming during the depression of the early 1840s. His reminiscences first appeared as articles in the South Australian "Chronicle" and were revised for this edition which was "so much enlarged as to be a new work." His account of the first, unsettled years of the colony is notable for its detailed and often critical accounts of individuals.Bull added substantially to this London edition, increasing it two-fold. Most of the new matter relates to the later history of the colony and to the Northern Territory. Bull prints many first-hand accounts of private and official travels and surveying expeditions which are otherwise unavailable. Of particular interest is the account of McKinlay's 1864 expedition to the East Alligator River in the Northern Territory. The account of this nearly fatal expedition is by R. H. Edmunds, surveyor and second-in-command. Despite its importance in the history of Northern Territory exploration, it appears only to have been printed in this book. Two of the four plates relate to the McKinlay expedition: 'Framework of Punt in which McKinlay and Party returned from their exploring trip' and 'Arrival of McKinlay and Party at Escape Cliff, Northern Territory'.From the library of Dr. Robert Edwards, AO.

        On The Rank

      London: John and Robert Maxwell. First Edition.. Beautiful little binding in very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Endpaper signed by preowner. Extremely Rare !. First Edition. London, John and Robert Maxwell, [1884]. 8°. 126 pages. Original Hardcover (half leather with gilt lettering on spine). Paper covered boards (marbled). Beautiful little binding in very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Endpaper signed by preowner. Extremely Rare ! Bracebridge Hemyng, popular English dime-novelist, or, as he would be called over there, writer of "bloods," was born in London in 1841, the eldest son of Dempster Hemyng of the English bar. Bracebridge was educated at Eton, then, following his father's footsteps, he entered the Middle Temple and was called to the bar in 1862. As a barrister, however, he was not a success. He had begun writing two years before, and contributed "The Curate of Invinsk" to the Morning Star. This being moderately successful, induced him to continue writing, and he soon turned out novels at a great rate, so that in the next twenty-five years he had some fifty to his credit. He began to write for Edwin J. Brett in London in 1868, and on July 23, 1871, the first of his "Jack Harkaway" stories appeared in the weekly Boys of England. It was reprinted in Frank Leslie's Boys' and Girls' Weekly in December of the same year. In 1873 Leslie engaged Hemyng to write exclusively for his papers,and paid him $10,000 a year. Hemyng, consequently, came to America and remained with Leslie for a number of years. In 1874 "Jack Harkaway in America" began in No. 379 of this paper. After some years Hemyng fell out with his publishers and returned to England, but in 1878, before leaving America, he had written two stories for the Police Gazette, "Left Her Home; or, The Trials and Temptations of a Poor Girl," and "Steps to Ruin; or, Gaslight Temptations." It has been said that "Jack Harkaway in New York" was not written by Hemyng, although it is signed with his name. However, it first appeared in Beadle's Young New Yorker, and an announcement in that weekly said, April 12, 1879, that the story was "written expressly for us by Mr. Hemyng." Hemyng was still in America at that time, so it is very unlikely that this statement would have been made had it been untrue. The story was reprinted July, 1879, in No. 101, Half-Dime Library. When Hemyng was in America he lived in grand style on Staten Island. It is said that he had a mad wife, who would throw stones, books, dishes, or any other object that was handy at Hemyng and his guests. She died later, after having been found wandering half naked through the woods. In the 1880's, in London, he married again and returned to the practice of law although he continued to write novels to some extent and published in such papers as Good New, Half Holiday, etc., in 1897-98. During his absence in America, however, other writers had arisen, and Hemyng's stories were not so popular as they once had been. He died in London, September 18, 1901, practically penniless.

SUMMARY: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a novel by Mark Twain, first published in England in December 1884 and in the United States in February 1885. Commonly named among the Great American Novels, the work is among the first in major American literature to be written in the vernacular, characterized by local color regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, a friend of Tom Sawyer and narrator of two other Twain novels (Tom Sawyer Abroad and Tom Sawyer, Detective). It is a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. Satirizing a Southern antebellum society that had ceased to exist about twenty years before the work was published, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an often scathing look at entrenched attitudes, particularly racism. BACKGROUND: Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He is noted for his novels Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), called "the Great American Novel", and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876). Twain was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty. Twain was popular, and his wit and satire earned praise from critics and peers. Upon his death he was lauded as the "greatest American humorist of his age", and William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature". CONDITION: Condition is Good+/Very Good. Some wear to edges, repair to ding at top front board edge, few small faint white marks to front, little glue/color added to top/bottom of spine/corners, few small erased numbers to first end page, small slice at top of the same, blemishing to bust plate/little to frontispiece, small blemish here and there, few pages in the middle stick out a tiny bit but secure, most pages/hinges/text block are very good for 130 years old!!!

Juni 1884 in Neustadt an der Weinstraße; gest. 6. Juli 1957 in Bad Dürkheim), der heute populärste und neben Max Slevogt bedeutendste Maler der Pfalz, besuchte von 1908 bis 1914 die Meisterklasse von Heinrich von Zügel, wobei er sich mit seinen Löwen- und Pferdestudien deutlich aus dem Kreis der Zügel-Schüler an der Münchener Akademie hervorhob. Er unternahm zahlreiche Reisen nach Nordafrika, Italien, Frankreich und Spanien, von denen er eine reiche Ernte an Skizzen, Stadtansichten und Landschaftsbildern mit nach Hause brachte. 1930 siedelte er von München zurück in die Pfalz. Seine furiose Tiermalerei, seine dramatischen Stierkämpfe, seine Löwenstudien und Pferdeszenen, aber auch die Landschaften, mit ihrer kraftvollen Pinselführung, dem pastosen, impulsiven Farbauftrag und dem sinnlichen Rausch von sattem Rot, intensivem Gelb oder kräftigem Grün vertreten eindeutig expressive Tendenzen.

Commonly named among the Great American Novels, the work is among the first in major American literature to be written in the vernacular, characterized by local color regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, a friend of Tom Sawyer and narrator of two other Twain novels (Tom Sawyer Abroad and Tom Sawyer, Detective). It is a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. Satirizing a Southern antebellum society that had ceased to exist about twenty years before the work was published, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an often scathing look at entrenched attitudes, particularly racism.Background: Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 ?" April 21, 1910), known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He is noted for his novels Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), called "the Great American Novel", and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876). Twain was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.Twain was popular, and his wit and satire earned praise from critics and peers. Upon his death he was lauded as the "greatest American humorist of his age", and William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature".Condition:Condition is Fair/Good.  Some wear to edges, re-backed binding with cloth laid down, darken/faint tape marks to boards, newer end pages, end page then frontispiece bust, first few pages have a slightly tattered edge, tape residue mark to first few pages, rest of pages/hinges/text block are very good for 130 years old!!!

        Wooden advertising panel from a wagon in Buffalo Bill?s Wild West Show, with a photocard from his last season

      "Hand-painted wooden panel, 21? x 13.75? x 0.75?, from one of the wagons used in Buffalo Bill?s Wild West Show, circa 1884-1890. Devised as an advertising vehicle to draw people to his shows as he travelled from town to town. A detailed color scene depicting teepees in an Indian village and men dressed in western garb. Slight fading, could be artfully restored. Accompanied by the actual photocard which accompanied the tickets purchased for Buffalo Bill?s 1916 season. It turned out to be his last. Buffalo Bill and Miller Bros. & Arlington 101 Ranch Real Wild West combined to perform for just that one season. On cardstock, 3.75? x 5.75?, it pictures Col. Cody and his facsimile double signature ?W.F. Cody / ?Buffalo Bill.? The verso is blank. The original 6? x 4? ticket envelope is present. A thin gray stripe along the envelope?s left edge indicated in which section the ticket holder would sit. On November 11, 1916, William F. Cody made his final appearance with his show at Portsmouth, Virginia, and headed for Washington for a few days (which included meeting President Woodrow Wilson in the White House and calling on friends) before returning to his Wyoming ranch. The November 15, 1916, issue of ?The Washington Post? reported that ?Col. Cody is approaching his seventy-fourth year, but is still vigorous and active. He did not miss a day this year from his show, he said.? By the end of November, Buffalo Bill was back at his Cody, Wyoming, ranch. Feeling ill, he went to Denver to visit his sister May. On December 16, 1916, his doctor announced to the press that Col. Cody was suffering from a general breakdown and that his illness was grave because of his age. William F. Cody, ?Buffalo Bill,? age 70, died at his sister?s home on January 10, 1917."

The analysis and data of these agents is a record of the administrative component of British Imperialism.

        Dorogoe nasledstvo. Roman Elisy O’Genlon [A Costly Heritage. A novel by Alice O’Hanlon].

      Izdanie E. N. Akhmatovoi. S.-Peterburg, Tipografiia A. A. Kraevskago 1883 [cover: Tipografiia I. N. Skorokhodova ] 1884 - First edition in Russian of A Costly Heritage (New York, 1881; London, 1882), with a translation of Ouida’s Frescoes: dramatic sketches (1883) at the end. Of O’Hanlon little is known. According to the Loebers, she ‘probably lived in Lancashire. Only one of her works [Chance? or Fate?, 1889] is known to have Irish content, but given her name it is likely she had Irish connections’ (A Guide to Irish Fiction O102). The British Library catalogues lists five other novels, 1878–86. A Costly Heritage appeared in Britain as a Tinsley Brothers three-decker, sometimes deemed the end of the line for a novel. There were no further editions. This copy suggests that the Russian version suffered a similar fate, as the cover here shows the sheets were reissued the following year by another publisher. No translations of O’Hanlon’s novels, in any language, are listed in either COPAC or WorldCat. 8vo (205 × 153 mm), pp. 312, 68; upper corner of the half-title excised and sometime repaired, corner of pp. 277/8 torn away (no loss); original printed boards, (original?) red sheep spine and corners, a little worn, sides discoloured.

        ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1884. First edition. Very Good +. True first edition, preceding the US edition. A Very Good + copy in the original red cloth stamped in gilt and black. A short tear to the cloth at the crown, a few spots to the cloth and the front hinge professionally (almost invisibly) repaired. Previous owners' writing across much of the half-title, but not elsewhere in the book. With the correct, first issue ads, dated October 1884. "We are also presented with a chapter from an unpublished work by the writer, detailing the adventures of a Southwestern boy a quarter of a century ago, which places before us in vivid colors the rough, hilarious, swaggering, fighting, superstitious ways of the bygone raftsmen. Rude, sturdy, unflinching, and raw though the picture is, it is likely to stand a long while as a wonderful transcript from nature, and as a memorial of the phase of existence which is described that will not easily be surpassed in the future. ("The Atlantic Monthly," September 1883). Very Good +.

        Three Autograph Letters, signed, one with a drawing, to Rev. E.F. Strickland

      New York, 1884-91. 8vo. . Fine. v. Peters, Currier & Ives, I, p. 70 et seq . One letter dated September 15, 1884 forwards "a couple of sketches which are not exactly what I would like Mrs. Strickland to have as a specimen of my work" but hopes to send something more suitable later. On April 21, 1891 he reports that two men asked about have died, but that a third can be found at "Life" magazine; he hopes "to send portrait soon." The third letter, dated December 1, 1884, is a particular delight. At the head of the page Worth has pasted a clipping from the Chicago Times. "'How to Make $500 a Year with Twelve Hens' is the title of a book recently published. The author is probably no less a person than that distinguished chicken fancier, Rutherford B. Hayes." Below this Worth has drawn in pencil and ink a hen, in bonnet and holding a furled umbrella, who looks up at the Chicago dispatch and says, "Bless me! Did you ever?". The gist of the letter is the artist's request "to enquire if the above book is published in Chicago & what price it can be had for, and I will forward the amount & ask you to have it sent to me...My home is on Staten Island where I amuse myself in the interval of grinding out comic illustrations by rearing & watching the motherly hen and the pompous rooster..." Thomas Worth (1834- 1917), "Uncle Tommy" as he was known to all his acquaintances and friends, sold his first comic sketch to Nathaniel Currier in 1855; he was to become one of the most popular of Currier & Ives's artists. He specialized in comic and caricature work--one of his "Darktown Comics" lithographs sold 73,000 copies--but also did racing and sporting scenes, as well as other subjects. In addition, he illustrated Dickens's Old Curiosity Shop, and contributed to "Judge" and other periodicals. He was a careful craftsman, often revising his work until he had achieved the best possible effect, and was noted for his enormous personal charm

        Literarisch-humoristisches Kunstalbum. (Literaturnyy i yumoristicheskiy khudozhestvennyy albom). Plakat. Einblattdruck.

      Veröffentlicht vom Russischen Lesekreis (bzw. Lesezimmer) in München., Mai 1884.. 2 Bl. mit einer Original-Lithographie. Format ca. 39x29,5 cm.. Ausgabe des russischen Lesezimmers. - Die restriktive Politik Zars Alexander III., bei der dieser vorher, durch seinen, bei einem Attentat ums Leben gekommene Vater Alexander II. gemachte soziale Reformen drastisch zurücknahm, führte dazu, daß in den 1890er Jahren zahlreiche Studenten, Juden und politische Aufrührer nach Berlin und München emigrierten. Der Russische Leseverein (bzw. Lesezirkel) wurde zum Sammelbecken zahlreicher Sozialisten und Anarchisten. U.a. gingen dort die Exilpolitiker Nicolaj Meserjakov, Julian Marchlewski, Israel Helphand und auch Lenin ein und aus. Vgl. Johannes Baur: Die russische Kolonie in München 1900-1945, S. 27: "Wohl seit Anfang der 90er Jahre existierten in München vier Organisationen der aus Rußland stammenden Studenten, nämlich der Polnische Lesezirkel, der Akademische Slawische Gesangsverein, die Russische Studentenkasse und der Russische Leseverein". Das Zentrum der studentischen Aktivitäten war in der Görrestrasse 16/I zu finden (vgl. Schneider, Die russischen Studentenkolonien, S. 78). Herman Beyer-Thoma schreibt in seiner Veröffentlichung "Bayern + Osteuropa" auf S. 391: "Sie unterhielten eine enge Studentenkasse, ein Studentenkasino mit einer Suppenküche und einen russischen Leseverein". Dort hingen wohl auch Bilder von Marx, Engels und Lassalle. - Düsteres, "heroisches" Motiv auf der eine nur spärlich bekleidete Frau mit ihrem linken Arm ein Plakat mit dem Titel unseres Plakates aufhält, davor im Dunkeln sitzende Person mit Mandoline und ein Betender. - Die Litho etwas undeutlich gedruckt auf einem Doppelblatt, von dem nur das erste Blatt bedruckt wurde. Auf bläulichem, festeren Papier. Dieses mit leichteren Bräunungsspuren und mit leichten Eselsohren. - Text in Kyrillisch. - Sehr selten! Von uns nirgends nachweisbar! Überhaupt findet sich zum Thema russische Studenten, Sozialisten und Anarchisten im 19. Jahrhundert in München nahezu nichts in öffentlichen Bibliotheken oder im Internet!

        Tungking

      Hong Kong.: Noronha.. 1884.. 115pp, some neat marginalia, original wrappers, lower corners first and last leaves creased. Chop front free endpaper, occasional light foxing edges and endpapers, some very minor loss paper at head and tail of spine, neat repair at foot. An historical sketch from early times through to the 1880s of the region of Tungking in Annam. At that time the region wsa involved in tumulteous events as the French attempted to gain the region facing Vietnamese and Chinese Black Flag resistance. Much of the historical information for this work the author drew from the Chinese work "Yueh-nan-chi-lio" while "The account of the Black Flags is based upon knowledge acquired from two of my military pupils who were sent upon an Imperial Mission to the Head Quarters of the band at Lao Kai. As they were not only natives of Kwang-Si, but had been formerly trusted chiefs of the Tai-pings they were for a month the welcome and honoured guests of the daring Black Flag leader Liu Yung-fu" (Introduction). .

        Eine neue Methode zum Studium des Faserverlaufs im Centralnervensystem." Separat-Abzug aus Archiv für Anatomie und Physiologie. Anatomische Abtheilung. INSCRIBED BY SIGMUND FREUD.

      [Leipzig: Veit, 1884]. - Pp. [453]-60. Original wrappers. Ink stamp "HISTOLOGIE/ Collège de France" on front wrapper. Ink note "Technique/ I x y z" (?by Ranvier) on front wrapper. Very Good. First Edition. INSCRIBED BY SIGMUND FREUD: "Hommage de l'auteur." The recipient was probably Louis Ranvier, who was the histologist at the Collège de France. The offprint of another paper on neurohistology by Freud--with the same ink stamp "HISTOLOGIE/ Collège de France" and with an inscription from Freud to Ranvier ("Monsieur le Professeur Ranvier hommage respectueux de l’auteur")--supports the view that Ranvier was the recipient of the offprint offered here. When Freud was in Paris from October 13, 1885-February 28, 1886, he met Ranvier at the Collège de France. Later he saw Ranvier at a dinner party given by Charcot. Freud described that meeting in a letter: "A particularly pleasant event for me was the arrival during the evening of M. Ranvier, the famous histologist, who had given me such a friendly reception in the Collège de France. I think he spoke to Charcot about me, and I myself had a pleasant talk with him later. My confidence as a judge of human nature received a considerable boost when he confided in me that he would have liked best to be a professor in a small German university--for instance, Bonn--for in a letter to Paneth I had described him as a 'German university professor badly translated into French' " (Letters of Sigmund Freud, ed. E. Freud, p. 207). Ranvier was one of only two people (the other being Charcot) who invited Freud to a dinner party while Freud was in Paris (Jones, Life and Work of Sigmund Freud, Vol. 1, p. 188). Grinstein, Sigmund Freud's Writings 30 (1884d). "Freud's full account of his method of staining nerve tissue with gold chloride. . . . An English version of this paper was published in Brain 7 (1884) pp. 86-89, under the title 'A new histological method for the study of nerve-tracts in the brain and spinal cord' " (Norman F6). "In February [Freud] heard that Weigert had invented a new method for staining nervous tissue, so he hastened to send a 'Preliminary Communication' on his own method to the Centralblatt für die medizinischen Wissenschaften, reserving the full account for Pflüger's Archiv für Anatomie und Physiologie [the full account is offered here]. He also got his friend Fleischl to send a paper to Ferrier in London for publication in Brain. . . . He wrote this one in English, but got an American to correct it. Freud was aware of the special difficulty with all such methods, which he pointed out as follows: 'Innumerable methods have been devised by histologists which proved themselves useful only in the hands of their inventors; that is why I have decided to publish even the pettiest directions.' Freud was himself highly pleased with the success of his method. which gave him 'a wonderfully clear and precise picture' of the cells and fibers. It caused some sensation at the time, and demands at once came in for it to be published in Czech, Italian, and Russian. The results of subsequent trials, however, were more variable; in some hands it produced excellent results, in others more uncertain and therefore unreliable ones. Brücke told him his various new methods alone would bring him fame" (Jones, ibid., Vol. 1, pp. 203-04). Shepherd, Foundations of the Neuron Doctrine (ch. 7, "The Nerve Cell Studies of Freud").
