        [Collection of 11 French offprints and extracts on the Islamic world].[Paris (1 Leipzig), 1831-1859]. 11 items in 1 volume. 8vo. With many passages in Arabic. Contemporary half vellum.

      Cf. Irwin, For lust of knowing, p. 148; for Defrémery: Cooper, Men of the time (1884), pp. 330. Collection of 11 French offprints and extracts of articles concerning the history of the Islamic world, all by notable orientalists, covering diverse topics such as the architecture of the Arabs and Moors, the astronomy of the Chaldeans, the Hindustani language, the Persian chronicle Mojmal al-tawarikh, the Ghurid dynasty, the kings of Achlath and Mardin (modern day Turkey), the Persian Mozaffarid dynasty, the Persian Sultan Barkiarocq, and India, but also including the autobiography of the famous Arab historiographer and historian Ibn Khaldun. Most of the authors were students of the distinguished orientalist Silvestre de Sacy. "it was inevitable that French Orientalism in the first half of the nineteenth century should be dominated by de Sacy's students. The most prominent of these was Etienne-Marc Quatremère (1782-1857)" (Irwin). Four of the articles are written by a student of Quatremère, Charles Defrémery (1822-1883), who had a "high reputation as an orientalist" (Cooper) himself.With a manuscript index to the articles. A couple leaves slightly browned and a small tear in the title-page of the third article, otherwise in very good condition. Binding very good as well.

      - St.-Pétersbourg, Privately published, 1884-1897. Six volumes [of nine] in six, 4to (29.0 x 19.4 cm; the volumes I, II, IV slightly smaller). Text, and 90 plates of which 89 finely hand-coloured [I (1884) 181 pp., 10 plates; II (1885) 262 pp., 16 plates; IV (1890) xvii, 577 pp., 22 plates (including one tinted plate A, between pp. 192-193), one rose-tinted table on p. 146, and a rose-tinted map on p. 196. Lacks one map (as usual); V (1889) [i], 248 pp., 12 plates; VI (1892) 701 pp., 16 plates; IX (1897) 367 pp., 14 plates]. Contemporary half calf over embossed cloth. Spines five raised bands and gilt title. Speckled edges [volumes I-II, IV]; Later half calf over marbled boards. Spines with gilt title. Patterned endpapers [volumes V, VI, IX].l A beautifully illustrated work and one of the rarest publications on butterflies. Even single volumes are very rare, and of volume 8 only about ten copies exist, since most were destroyed in a fire. This set comprises volumes 1-2, 4-6, and 9. A modern reprint of volume 8 is included for free. In this set, all 89 plates that should be finely hand-coloured are indeed so. The work contains contributions by several leading entomologists of the late 19th century, including Christoph, Snellen, Standfuss, Staudinger, and others, including Romanoff himself. Grand Duke Nicholas Mikhailovich Romanoff (1859-1919) was the only naturalist of the Czar family. He was murdered by the Bolsheviks. The various contributions here are mainly written in German and French, and many new species are introduced. Volume IV forms a single, large monograph, titled "Le Pamir et sa fauna lépidoptérologique" and is written by G. Groum-Grshimaïlo, who provided several other contributions. It lacks the map. Otherwise all volumes are complete. Copies having several or many of the plates uncoloured do exist, but in this set all plates are in original, very fine hand-colouring. Former owner's name handwritten in the upper margin of the title pages of volumes V, VI, and IX; some shallow worming in the spine of volumes V-IX, and few pages lightly spotted, otherwise a fine, clean set. All volumes were printed in very low numbers, so they are rarely for sale. Junk, Bibliotheca Lepidopterologica, 2268; Nissen ZBI, 4678. Not in Horn-Schenkling II. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Fauna und Flora des Golfes von Neapel und der Angrenzenden Meeres-Abschnitte. XI. Monographie: Die Polycladen.

      - Leipzig, Wilhelm Engelmann, 1884. Two volumes in two. Large 4to (33.3 x 27.2 cm). ix, 688 pp., 54 text engravings, 39 lithographed plates, of which 11 in beautiful full colour (chromolithographs), and several partly coloured, with explanatory text. Original uniform wrappers with printed text and wood engraving of the Institute' s building in Naples.l Very rare and very beautifully illustrated monograph of the often spectacularly coloured swimming flatworms, which often closely resemble nudibranchs. A massive work, published in two parts. Published as part 11 of the series "Fauna und Flora des Golfes von Neapel". Other parts of this series deal with other marine organisms; this is the only work on flatworms. The large plates are printed by Werner & Winter Lithographische Anstalt in Frankfurt am Main and are of excellent quality. An uncut copy, thus with the widest possible margins. This volume is of further interest because it contains a 4 pp. list of subscribers (including the German emperor, and noted zoologists such as Alexander Agassiz, Carus, Percy Sladen, Brusina, Barboza du Bocage, Retzius, and others). Also present is the 2 pp. list of published and planned monographs in this series, including, as vol. 16, the eolidie by Trinchese (who died in 1897) and, as vol. 32, the amphineureans by Hubrecht (1853-1915). Neither were published, their volume numbers being used for other monographs. Rear wrapper of second volume detached; otherwise very good, with fine, clean plates. Nissen ZBI, 2100.

        Sweet Girl Goldie, a wonder story of butterfly time.

      Spinner & Perkins, ,, New York 1884 - CONDITION: Very Good Plus; no names or other marks, very clean, no creases, 1/4" chip from tip of front cover wing and 1/16" chip from following page. The original thin silk pearl cord, as received, was blended with strands of identical silk from the 1920's to strengthen the ties. New York: Spinner & Perkins, 1884, shaped chromo card covers tied with brown and cream silk threads on the insect body; a dark brown butterfly, forms the outside covers, inside covers repeat; title page with bright coloured butterflies and gilt titles, 10 textured interior sheets; a page of golden text and watercolours on every spread; approximately 6.5x9.5. Softcover. A quiet brown butterfly conceals beautiful bright lithos within of Sweet Girl Goldie and her adventures. Effusively written, but just barely a fantasy. When the little girl "rescues" her uncle's butterfly specimens and takes them out to live on the flowers, their dry bodies fall on the ground. Thinking Goldie meant harm, the Queen Butterfly calls her subjects, who seize the golden strands of the little girl's hair. But her uncle explains that he is the culprit, and from then on the butterflies flock lovingly around Goldie wherever she walks. Elizabeth Bullock Humphrey (1841 - 1889) was a noted card designer for Prang and the author/artist of several books, including Western Americana. Her child models, probably including Girl Goldie, came from her home village of Hopedale, Massachusetts. Prang mounted a retrospective and issued a book in her name after her death (Child Life).

        Rime.

      Firenze, Pietro Chiesi, 1884, in-8 piccolo, br. edit., pp. 294, [2]. Lieve cambiamento di colore a parte della copertina anteriore (prob. per diversa esposizione alla luce), per il resto ottime condizioni. Prima edizione. Esemplare che reca numerose correzioni, integrazioni e varianti manoscritte ai versi della raccolta, sicuramente autografe dell'autore: i mutamenti sono numerosi e spesso sostanziali e danno vita in alcuni casi a veri e propri nuovi componimenti. Una intera composizione manoscritta, probabilmente sempre dal Manni, è montata fra le pagine 290 e 291: "A Ida Galli Tassi nel giorno delle sue nozze". Segnaliamo che i cambiamenti qui presenti non si riscontrano nell'edizione riveduta delle Rime del 1900, facendo di questo esemplare una fonte unica.

        Le Livre de Demain

      (Blois): R. Marchand, 1884. 5 1/2 x 9. Complete in 44 gatherings (over 400 pages) plus extras* including a signed portrait of Rochas inscribed by him "A mon collaborateur anonyme." Most copies, which were sold by subscription, did not have this portrait. Loose, as issued, in a later leather & marbled board chemise wrapper & matching slipcase. Small bookplate inside chemise. A wonderful production showcasing the potential of paper, ink, color, illustration, and typography. Fine copy. De Rochas felt that superior printing was concentrated in only two or three firms. But if bibliophiles could see what was possible, they could extract this high quality from local printers in the future. In the first 67 pages, de Rochas discusses paper, ink, and color. The specimens that follow are printed on papers of various textures, weights, and colors. Almost every page is printed in at least two colors with the text block enclosed in a typographic border of contrasting colors, or gold, or silver. The color combination borders are different in each specimen. There are several engravings, silhouettes, and photo-lithographs done for this work, and 4 color wheels. One fascicle contains 10 paper samples from papyrus to Chinese and Japanese papers. The table of contents identifies each text (generally contemporary prose or poetry with several pieces done specifically for this publication), identifies the paper used, and gives a page count for each fascicle. No. 91 of 250 copies, signed by de Rochas and by the printer/publisher Raoul Marchand. * Extras in this copy: The Jaune de Voiron paper gathering (#28) has the 11 p. "Le Paradis Perdu' (p. 12 is another impression of the silhouette) plus the alternate 16 page section "Dissertation...' and a duplicate etching in gathering 39. There is considerable variation in content among the copies we have seen. The book's limitation was dictated by the availability of the 44 different papers used. Many copies have fewer gatherings, and it is possible the printer ran out of some paper types. De Rochas' work was issued in wraps, as Subscribers were expected to provide a "reliure définitive." De Rochas created his specimens at a time when a similar impetus toward higher quality printing was occurring in England and the U. S. However, he appears to have done so independently, and to have been unaware of the "Printers' Specimen Exchange" or of Harpel's two publications of a similar nature. Scarce.

        Psychiatrie klinik der Erkrankungen des Vorderhirns begründet auf dessen Bau, Leistungen und Ernährung

      1884 - X-288 pp. Vienne, Wilhelm Braumüller, 1884, in-8, X-288 pp, demi-basane verte moderne, dos lisse orné [Asper], Figures dans le texte et une planche couleurs. La seconde partie de cet ouvrage n'est jamais parue, ce qui explique sa fin abrupte, au milieu d'une phrase (aucun des exemplaires consultés dans les bibliothèques publiques ou chez les libraires ne comporte de page supplémentaire). Theodor Hermann Meynert (1833-92), psychiatre et neuroanatomiste allemand de grande renommée, fut le professeur de Wernicke et de Freud. Il défend une vision du cerveau organisé en différentes aires fonctionnelles connectées les unes aux autres par des faisceaux de substance blanche. Dès 1867, il publie ainsi une classification des troubles mentaux basée sur leurs corollaires anatomo-pathologiques qui divise ses collègues. Meynert était en effet un adepte de la psychiatrie organiciste et associationniste pour qui tout fait anatomique n'était que l'expression d'un processus psychologique. Il milita aussi beaucoup pour améliorer les conditions des asiles psychiatriques, afin de les rendre plus humains. Dos passé. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

You have not wanted this short interval to pass, without bringing to my notice the happy successes accomplished in Peru", thanking Iglesias for his good wishes, his successes "are all the more agreeable, as they concern a sister Republic which has just emerged from a prolonged and desolating struggle", 2 sides folio, Mexico City, 29th January two small pinholes in blank upper left corner of first side From 1879-1882 Chile was at war with Peru, who had taken the side of Bolivia in a dispute over the Chilean Nitrate Company. Chile's real aim in invading was the rich province of Tarapacá. After the fighting was over an attempt was made to form an administration which could agree terms with Chile, who continued to occupy Lima. General Iglesias was nominated and in October 1883 a treaty was signed, but the invaders maintained a strong force at Chorillos till the treaty was finally approved in July 1884, including the transfer to Chile of Tarapacá. The Peruvians of the interior under General Cáceres refused to recognise Iglesias, and in December 1885 Iglesias abdicated. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
