        Mémoires sur les Lépidoptères.

      Rédigés par N.M. Romanoff. Tomes I-VII & IX. St. Pétersbourg 1884-1897. 8 volumes. 4to (270 x 195mm). pp. (8), 181; (6), 262; (6), 419; xvii, 575, (2); (6) 248; (4), 700; (8), lvi, 658, (2); (4), 365, (1), with 130 plates of which 126 finely hand-coloured, some figures in the text and 4 coloured maps, of which 1 is a large folding map. Contemporary black half morocco, spines with red gilt lettered label (some skilful repairs to bindings). A fully coloured copy of probably the rarest work on Russian Lepidoptera. The 4 plain plates are anatomical plates and were never coloured. Sets with all the plates coloured are excessively rare and the last copy we sold with all the plates coloured was in 1961. The work was published in a very limited edition, and the number of plates which are coloured vary in most of the copies. Usually copies with 70 coloured plates or less are found. Only a few copies with all the plates coloured exist. As always, the original edition of the 8th volume is not included; it is excessively rare since this volume was destroyed by fire shortly after publication and only 10 copies survived. In the introduction of the reprint of the 8th volume Professor G.S. Medvedev, President of the Russian Entomological Society writes as follows: "Only 10 copies survived, four still kept in Russia, three in Germany, and three in other entomological libraries of the world". We have added the reprint of the 8th volume to our set but have not added the pages and the coloured plates in our description./The monographs included are fundamental contributions on the butterflies of regions of the Russian Empire and Asia, by specialists as the Grand Duke Nicolai Michailovich Romanoff himself, Christoph, Staudinger, Snellen, Grum-Grshimailo, Heylarts and others. /Amongst others the work comprises large monographs as: N.M. Romanoff, Les Lépidoptères de la Transcaucasie; H. Christoph, Lépidoptera aus dem Achal-Tekke Gebiet; Gr. Grum-Grshimailo, Le Pamir et sa faune Lépidoptérologique; S. Alphéraky, Lépidoptères rapportés de la Chine et de la Mongolie par G.N. Potanine; E.L. Ragonol, Monographie des Phycitinae et des Galleriinae./Grand Duke Nicholas Mikhailovich Romanoff was born on 26 April 1859 at Tsarskoye Selo, the eldest child of the seven children of Grand Duke Michael Nicolaievich of Russia and his wife Grand Duchess Olga Feodorovna. He was the only naturalist of the Czar family. He was later imprisoned by the Bolsheviks in Petrograd and shot outside the St Peter and St Paul Fortress on 28 january 1919. First volume with paper repair to the upper and outer margin of the title and one text leaf with tiny repair to the outer margin, the large map with small tear. Volume VII is somewhat smaller than the other volumes and the binding was bound to match the other volumes in size.//Provenance: name of Kikumaro Okano on inside frontcover and his Japanese stamp on titles.//Junk, Bibl. Lepidopterologica 2268; Nissen ZBI, 4678.

        New Sectional Map of the State of Florida

      G.W. & C.B. Colton & Co., New York 1884 - Pocket map of typical format in embossed cloth covers, as issues. Map of a portion of Florida, from the state line with Georgia in the north to Lake Okeechobee in the south, and from the Atlantic Coast in the east to Madison and Taylor Counties in the west, omitting the Florida Panhandle.Counties are outlined in green, yellow and pink.Other geographical entities include towns, lakes, rivers, bays, and coastal islands.The map is at a scale of 10 miles to an inch.A grid is laid over most of the map, according to the plan adopted in surveying the Public Lands of the United States, in which the country is divided into townships by lines 6 miles apart, which are further subdivided into a smaller grid of 640-acre sections.Text on the map explains how the grids can be used to locate any piece of land on the map. Between 1831 and 1890, the Colton family was among the most prominent and prolific American map publishers.The company was founded by Joseph H. Colton, who had no formal training in geography or cartography; his principal role was to manage the production and distribution of the maps. He began by publishing maps drawn by David H. Burr in the 1830s. The firm was renamed G.W. & C.B. Colton in the 1860s when Colton was succeeded by his sons -- George Woolworth Colton (1827-1901) and Charles B. Colton (c. 1831-1916).George Colton compiled the company's 1855 Atlas of the World and served thereafter as the firm's principal map compiler, cartographer and engraver.The company continued to publish a wide range of atlases, pocket maps, wall maps, folding maps for books, etc. until the 1890s, at which point mass production began to overtake the map business.According to map historian Walter W. Ristow, "[h]aving built their business on engraving and lithography, the Coltons were apparently unwilling to reorganize it." Cartouche: "Colton¿s New Sectional Map of the Eastern Portion of Florida.From the surveys of the U.S. Land Office, the U.S. Coast Survey and other Original Sources.G.W. & C.B. Colton & Co. 182 William St. New York."

      San Francisco 1884 - Thompson and West History of Idaho Territory, Showing Its Resources and Advantages: with Illustrations Descriptive of Its Scenery, Residences, Farms, Mines, Mills, Hotels, Business Houses, Schools, Churches &c. From Original Drawings Publisher: Wallace W. Elliott, San Francisco, 1884 Hand-colored lithograph (later color) 10 1/2” x 13 3/4” Thomas H. Thompson, formerly Captain Thomas, began his career preparing maps and atlases of Illinois and Iowa counties. At various times of his life he was in partnership with several different men, two of them, Louis Everts and Alfred Andreas, were old acquaintances from his army days. In 1870 Thompson and Everts began publishing atlases, releasing in that year what they called “combination atlas maps.” In the 1870 atlases, lithographic illustrations were placed at the rear of the volumes. After 1870 the illustrations were interleaved with township maps throughout the atlases. The atlases were sold by subscription by traveling salesmen. Thompson and Everts dissolved their partnership in the early 70s and in 1875 Thompson migrated to California. There he published atlases of Sonoma County (1877), Fresno County (1891), and Tulare County (1892). In partnership with West, he issued atlases of Santa Clara County (1875), Alameda County (1878) and Solano County (1878). All are illustrated with lithographic views and sketches similar to those in the atlases of mid-western counties. In 1884 Thompson and West published The History of the Idaho Territory. This atlas was first full-scale history of Idaho, with a splendid array of lithographed plates showing the farms, mines, houses, and other features of Idaho settlements, including bird's-eye views of several of the towns. Much space is devoted to the mining industries and other economic enterprises, but there is also treatment of early exploration, Indian Wars and other aspects of Idaho history and settlement.

        PORTRAIT OF GEOFFREY SCOTT.

      [Np. undated]. - Original portrait drawing, in sanguine and white, on a sheet of grey michalet paper, 38 x 29 cm. Fine, mounted via a vinyl sleeve in a captioned mat of ca. 1960s vintage, the latter a bit darkened and smudged. A striking portrait of Scott (1884-1929), almost full face, unsigned, but captioned "G.Scott" in the lower margin in pencil in the artist's hand. In the course of his dramatically short life, Scott left a significant mark in the fields of arts and letters. As an undergraduate, he was invited to Florence by Bernard Berenson, an occasion that led to his close friendship with John Maynard Keynes, and eventually to his acting as Berenson's secretary-librarian from 1907-1909. He established an informal architectural partnership with Cecil Pinsent, and in 1914, published the quite influential work, THE ARCHITECTURE OF HUMANISM. In spite of the somewhat complex sexual aspects it entailed, he entertained a passionate love affair with Vita Sackville-West from 1923-5, the period leading up to his publication of THE PORTRAIT OF ZÉLIDE. This latter work drew him to the attention of Col. Ralph Isham, who invited him to prepare for publication the Boswell papers Isham had coaxed from Malahide Castle. Scott was engaged in this project until, after a short holiday back home in the UK, he contracted pneumonia and died in New York in 1929. The editorship was then assumed by Frederick Pottle. Scott's POEMS were published posthumously in 1931. While the occasion upon which this portrait was made is not readily ascertainable, certainly the Rothenstein and Scott paths must have frequently intersected.

        Etudes de dynamique chimique

      Frederik Müller, Amsterdam 1884 - 8vo., [4] [i] ii-iv, [1] 2-214 [2] pp., text wood-engravings. Original publishers wrappers, creased and dust soiled in margins. Upper spine chipped (professionally restored). Provenance: Strychnin specialist Prof. Franz Feist, with his ex-libris on title page. ---- Partington IV, pp. 658-60; Norman 2129. RARE FIRST EDITION, THE BIRTH OF PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY. Groundbreaking publication of Dutch chemist Van 't Hoff. Van't Hoff's treatise on chemical dynamics, in the words of his colleague Arrhenius, "develop[ed] an imposing and harmonious scheme for the whole subject of chemical influences and actions" (Partington IV, p.658). It dealt with reaction velocity, the theory of equilibrium, and the theory of affinity as based on free energy. Van't Hoff classified reaction velocities into unimolecular, bimolecular and multimolecular, wrote the equation for the effect of temperature on the equilibrium constant, and formulated the principle of mobile equilibrium (at constant volume, equilibriums tend to shift in such a direction as to oppose temperature changes imposed on a system) that became the basis of the Van't Hoff-Le Châtelier principle. In 1901 Van't Hoff received the first Nobel Prize in chemistry, in part for his work in chemical dynamics (Norman 2129). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.

        Manuscrit) Journal de bord du Commandant en second du Cuirassé « Le Trident » commandé par le Capitaine de vaisseau Behic, du Jeudi 30 août 1883 au samedi 14 juin 1884

      - Journal de bord d'environ 140 pages, contresigné par le Contre-Amiral en inspection générale en date du 5 septembre 1884. À noter que ce journal cartonné avec dos entoilé a été imprimé vierge par Bastide, libraire à Toulon conformément aux articles 387 du décret du 20 mai 1878. Il comporte, soigneusement rempli d'une écriture trés lisible, tous les évenements du cuirassé jusqu'à la date du 30 mai 1884 (3 pages manquantes en fin d'ouvrage). Renseignements sur ce qui est vu, sur les évenements arrivés à bord (décés), les mouillages (uniquement en Méditerranée), les voilures, le temps, les exercices d'escadre, les exercices aux postes de combats ainsi que plus particulièrement les exercices de torpilles. En effet, le cuirassé « Le Trident » est un cuirassé (coque en bois) de classe Colbert, équipé de filets pare torpilles comme on peut le voir en maquette au Musée de la Marine. Pour l'historique de ce navire, il fut construit en 1876 à Toulon, retiré du service actif le 11 septembre 1900, il est converti en caserne dans un port du Levant ou il y fut démoli en 1910. Son commandant, Charles Behic, finira Contre-Amiral. Le nom du second et auteur de ce journal de bord est inconnu, il pourrait être le Lieutenant de Vaisseau Aymet, car en effet, une plaquette de 47 pages de 1878, jointe avec ce manuscrit et intitulée « Considérations sur les compas et Boussoles » par C.E. Caspari, est dédicacée à ce nom. Ce document manuscrit est surtout une page d'histoire de la marine et du mode de vie à la fin du XIXe siècle sur nos bateaux de guerre. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
