        TREASURE ISLAND. With Illustrations

      Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1884. First American Edition. Hard Cover. Good. viii, [1]-292, [12 ads] pages. 12 pages of undated ads. Original aqua blue cloth decorated in black. First American (and first illustrated) edition. The first English edition, unillustrated, had been published in November, 1883; this American edition, with four plates by F. T. Merrill, was published in February 1884. The fisrt English illustrated edition, with 26 plates including the four from Roberts Bros., was not published until mid-1885. This copy is from the second issue (with the error "rain" corrected to "vain" on the last line of p. 40 - and with twelve rather than four pages of ads). According to bibliographers (such as the Yale and Princeton collections), the book appears in brown, grey, or yellow cloth, without priority. However, this copy is in aqua blue cloth - a fourth, unrecorded color, and certainly the scarcest of thef our. Condition is good - moderate wear at the spine ends, a few marks to the the covers, one plate edge-worn where it must have once been loose, spine slanted. In our experience, this Boston edition is considerably scarcer than the 1883 English one, even on this side of the Atlantic - and when it does turn up, it is typically in atrocious condition. Beinecke (Yale) 244 (yellow) & 245 (grey) - no indication of p. 40 reading, but both with 4 pp ads; Princeton 22A, copy 1 (grey, "rain", 4 pp ads) & copy 2 (yellow, "vain", 12 pp ads) & copy 3 (brown, "vain", 12 pp ads). (Description used with the kind permission of Sumner & Stillman ABAA booksellers).

        Rounding the Light Ship. (A Fall Regatta.) [Pl. 5]

      - New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1884. Chromolithograph (signed and dated in the plate, 14 3/16 x 20 1/2 inches), on original embossed card mount (18 1/2 x 22 7/8 inches), with original mounted letterpress title label. In good condition apart from toning to the mount. An excellent action-packed scene centering on the 'crack American sloops rounding the lightship' (Jacobsen). 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. 'Cozzens crowded [this scene] . with sailing craft and excursion boats. A stern view of the yacht, Fanny, is presented as she spreads her sails to move quickly. Gracie is pictured in the center of the scene and Rover can be seen coming into view on the right' (Anita Jacobsen Frederic Cozzens Marine Painter 1982, p.59).

        Contribution à l'étude de l'atrophie musculaire progressive type Aran-Duchenne (exemplaire de Pierre Janet)

      Paris A. Parent 1884 In-quarto broché en exemplaire de thèse de la thèse de doctorat de médecine soutenue devant V. Cornil d'A. Reverchon né à Genève le 9 décembre 1854. Tres précieux exemplaire de PIERRE JANET avec son cachet gras imitant sa signature olographe. Il est le père de Blanche Reverchon, la femme de Pierre-Jean Jouve et très grande figure des débuts de la psychanalyse française. A. Reverchon, qui suivait les cours de Charcot la même année que Freud, retourna ses études achevées en Suisse ou il mena une carrière médicale. On notera qu'il s'agit exactement du même sujet de thèse que le fils de Charcot en 1895. Sa fille, Blanche Reverchon, qui passa un doctorat de médecine avec J. Babinski, Contribution à l'étude des contractures parkinsoniennes, rejoindra elle-même son père à. Genève en 1926 pour y exercer la psychiatrie à Genève. On la voit dépeinte dans le roman de Victor Marguerite « La Garconne ». Plus tard, elle apparaitra aussi dans La Déchirure d'Henry Bauchau qu'elle prit en analyse. Elle avait elle-même été analysée par Eugénie Sokolnicka et Rudolph Loewenstein et René Laforgue à la consultation libre ouverte à Sainte-Anne par Henri Claude. Hormis sa thèse de doctorat en médecine (elle figure à l'index des thèses de la Faculté de Médecine de Paris mais plus aucune bibliothèque ne la possède), sa traduction du livre de Freud et un article publié en commun par Blanche Reverchon-Jouve et Pierre Jean Jouve, Moments d'une psychanalyse dans la Nouvelle Revue Française en mars 1933, elle n'a pas publié d'ouvrages. Mais il est connu qu'elle a considérablement pesé sur le développement de la S.P.P. Lors de la scission, elle suivra Jacques Lacan et Daniel Lagache dans la création de la S.F.P. Très rare exemplaire dont il n'existe qu'un seul exemplaire en France à la B.I.UM Très bon couverture souple Edition originale

        The Fisheries and Fishery Industries of the United States

      Wash., 1884-1887.. This is a complete set of 5 sections in 7 volumes of the most comprehensive history and description of the commercial fishing industry in the U.S. A made-up set of volumes from various sources, all in original cloth bindings, with varying degrees of cover wear. It may look a little uneven outside, but it’s a thing of beauty inside. Occupying about 16 inches of shelf space, it is remarkably detailed, covering natural history, technology, geography, even the sociology of the fishermen and their occupation. Section I has an atlas of natural history illustrations and Section V has an atlas of illustrations of methods and technology. Other volumes are illustrated with full page plates and maps. A necessary reference work for anyone interested in 19th century American fisheries. It has never been reprinted in its entirety, and is difficult to find as a set. All contents VG in original cloth bindings. 7 vols.

        The World¿s Industrial And Cotton Centennial Exposition, New Orleans, LA., U. S. A. Department of Installation. Plan No. 2 Map of the City of New Orleans

      New Orleans 1884 - Lithograph. Fold wear with some losses; flattened & mounted on acid-free paper; very good. A large, visually rich plan of New Orleans made for visitors to the 1884-1885 World¿s Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exhibition. Held to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the exportation of cotton from the United States, the exposition was one of the most ambitious world¿s fairs ever held. Audubon Park in present-day New Orleans would develop on the exposition¿s grounds. Although plagued by various problems, the fair did boast an array of impressive structures, including its main building, which was reputed to the world¿s largest wooden structure at the time. This building and several others, along with a full view and plan of the exposition grounds, are illustrated here. There are also an inset plan of New Orleans as it was in 1770 and a 1719 view of the nascent city. The large plan of the city itself is extremely well detailed, providing not only up-to-date street names throughout the whole city but also the addresses of the structures on them.

        The World's Industrial And Cotton Centennial Exposition, New Orleans, LA., U. S. A. Department of Installation. Plan No. 2 Map of the City of New Orleans

      New Orleans, 1884. No Binding. Very Good. 26 5/8 x 36 ½ inches. Lithograph. Fold wear with some losses; flattened & mounted on acid-free paper; very good. A large, visually rich plan of New Orleans made for visitors to the 1884-1885 World's Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exhibition. Held to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the exportation of cotton from the United States, the exposition was one of the most ambitious world's fairs ever held. Audubon Park in present-day New Orleans would develop on the exposition's grounds. Although plagued by various problems, the fair did boast an array of impressive structures, including its main building, which was reputed to the world's largest wooden structure at the time. This building and several others, along with a full view and plan of the exposition grounds, are illustrated here. There are also an inset plan of New Orleans as it was in 1770 and a 1719 view of the nascent city. The large plan of the city itself is extremely well detailed, providing not only up-to-date street names throughout the whole city but also the addresses of the structures on them.
