        The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

      - London: Chatto & Windus, 1884. 8vo, xvi, 438, (2), 32 pp. Illustrated. Original red cloth with gilt titles, pictorially stamped in black. Small booksellerÕs ticket on front pastedown, inscription dated December 22, 1884 (month of publication) on half-title. Small faint dampstain on upper cover, equally faint spotting on rear cover, printing flaw on page 132, a handsome copy. First English edition, first state (with the October 1884 publisherÕs catalogue), preceding the American edition by four months. This copy is bound with staples, while others were bound more conventionally with string. While there is no priority between the two, it is quite difficult to find staple-bound copies in desirable condition today as the ill-conceived English experiment with staples proved very unsatisfactory. The English Chatto & Windus edition was published during the first week of December 1884, with copies then being advertised as available and for sale. The copyright for the American edition was filed at about the same time, but copies were not actually issued until four months later. BAL 3414. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Die Canalisation von Berlin. Im Auftrage des Magistrats der Königl. Haupt- und Residenzstadt Berlin entworfen und ausgeführt von James Hobrecht. Nebst einem Atlas in Gross-Folio mit 57 Tafeln.

      - Berlin, Verlag von Ernst & Korn, 1884, 4°, (6), 330 pp., mit Abbildungen und Tabellen. Erste Ausgabe! - James Friedrich Ludolf Hobrecht (31. Dezember 1825 in Memel - 8. September 1902 in Berlin) "war ein preußischer Stadtplaner und für Berlins ersten perspektivischen Bebauungsplan, den Hobrecht-Plan von 1862 verantwortlich. Als Stadtbaurat organisierte er ab 1885 die Einführung der Stadtentwässerung und machte sich damit um die Gesundheit der Berliner Bevölkerung verdient. - - Nach einer landwirtschaftlichen und Bauingenieurausbildung legte er 1858 die Wasser-, Wege- und Eisenbahnbaumeisterprüfung ab und wurde im selben Jahr als Regierungsbaumeister bei der damals für Baufragen zuständigen Königlichen Polizei (Baupolizei) angestellt. Ab 1859 wurde er Leiter der Kommission zur Ausarbeitung des Bebauungsplans der Umgebungen Berlins. Eine Inspektionsreise 1860 nach Hamburg, Paris, und nach London und in andere englische Städte diente dem Kennenlernen des neuesten Entwicklungsstandes für das Vorhaben eines modernen Kanalisations- und Entwässerungssystems. Der von ihm maßgeblich entwickelte Bebauungsplan der Umgebungen Berlins, der so genannte Hobrecht-Plan, sah als Fluchtlinienplan ein Konzept von Ring- und Ausfallstraßen für die Städte Berlin und Charlottenburg sowie umliegende Gemeinden vor. 1862 trat der Plan in Kraft, der bis heute eine Grundlage der Berliner Bebauungs- und Verkehrsstruktur bildet. - - Als ihm zum 15. Dezember 1861 gekündigt wurde, wechselte er nach Stettin. Er ließ hier unter anderem ein Trinkwassernetz erbauen und projektierte ein Kanalisationssystem, das ab 1870 verwirklicht wurde. - - Mit Unterstützung seines Bruders Arthur Hobrecht, der 1872 Berliner Oberbürgermeister wurde, und des Arztes Rudolf Virchow wurde er 1869 mit der Umsetzung seiner Pläne einer Kanalisation für Berlin mit 12 Radialsystemen betraut. In jedem dieser 12 Gebiete gab es eigenständige unterirdische Kanäle und Abwassersammler, die zu jeweils einer Pumpstation führten. Von dort wurden das Hausabwasser und das Regenwasser über Druckleitungen nach außen zu den ebenfalls neu angelegten Berliner Rieselfeldern gepumpt. Diese von 1873 bis 1893 fertiggestellten Radialsysteme machten Berlin damals zur Stadt mit der modernsten Entwässerung und zur saubersten Stadt der Welt. Neben Stettin und Berlin half er Potsdam und etwa 30 weiteren deutschen Gemeinden sowie Moskau, Tokio und Kairo bei der Abwasserbeseitigung." wiki - - First Edition! James Hobrecht (1825-1902) was responsible for the construction of the Berlin sewers. - - Garrison & Morton No.1624 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        An Archive of Over 100 significant Letters and Documents in the Period 1907-1919 of One of the Earliest Telephone Companies In Ohio

      The collection contains 125 pieces of original correspondence including both TLS (Typed Letters Signed) and ((LS) Letters Signed. What began as a small electrical shop for the repair and manufacture of telephone equipment in 1884 as the north Electric Works grew to become the North Electric Company in 1889. By the early 20th Century the company became one of the most prominent manufacturing business in Ohio employing over 300 workers. After being in business for over a century, the business first was taken over by Ericsson and the by IYTY. These letters pertain to the problems stemming from a patent for the automatic ringing mechanism, switch boards and operators as well as dealing with their manufacture under Canadian Parents which became know as the Telechronometer Co. The big change ended the flat-rate system and introduced meters which could measure the length of calls and, of course, increase the cost to the consumer. For the next sixty years, the telephone company became a monopoly enforced by patent, licenses, bonds, under the Bell and AT&T trademarks.. Quarto.

        1920s French Sketchbook of Erotic Drawings

      Oblong octavo. Flexible cloth blank book with attached cloth loop to hold a pencil (not present, but we can get you one if you need it). Some modest wear on the boards, two leaves detached and laid in, very good or better, internally near fine. Artist not stated, presumed from provenance to come from Paris in the late 1920s and early 1930s. An interesting and unusual sketchbook containing 75 pencil drawings. On the verso of most pages are 39 quickly sketched drawings of well-dressed Parisians sitting or perambulating through parks, very reminiscent of the subjects of Georges Seurat's painting "Un dimanche apres-midi a l'Ile de la Grande Jatte - 1884" ("A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte"). On the recto leaves are a total of 36 reasonably detailed and very well-accomplished drawings of couples engaged in many varieties of explicit sexual activity (a few include studies of details in the margins or are less detailed). In any event, it is clear where the author's true enthusiasm lies, and to where his(or her?) energies were devoted. An arresting and pleasing album of accomplished erotic drawings. .
