        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]

        Finely penned Document signed, in Spanish with translation, to the President of Peru, (Manuel, 1833-1893, President of Mexico 1880-1884)

      1884 - (General Miguel Iglesias, 1822-1901, President 1883-1885), thanking him "with great satisfaction" for Iglesias' letter explaining that "appointed President for the renewal of Peru by the Assembly of Cajamarca in December 1882, Your Excellency [Iglesias] peacefully occupied Your capital on the 23rd of the following October, having signed with the Government of Chile on the 20th . the peace so longed for by your own people and by foreign countries", and that although Iglesias' position "is uncertain, since You have already summoned for the 1st March next the General Constituent Assembly . 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]

        A Stern Chase and a Long One

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1884 - Colour-printed lithograph, mounted on card. 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, Frederic Cozzens 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. A Stern Chase and a Long One depicts a race that took place in June of 1876 between the Countess of Dufferin , the America , the Grant and Madeleine . The Madeleine came in first, America second (both American boats), and the Countess of Dufferin , a Canadian yacht, finished third. Jacobsen. Frederic Cozzens. Marine Painter , New York: 1982.

        ARCHIBALD MALMAISON ..

      New York: Funk & Wagnalls, Publishers, 1884.. Octavo, pp. [1-5] 6-126 [127-144: publisher ads], fly leaves at front and rear, original decorated bevel-edged orange cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black and gold, yellow endpapers. First U.S. edition. The first printing with ad on page 144 headed "The Standard Library, 1884." Issued as part of Funk & Wagnalls' "Standard Library Series" in paper at 15¢ and in cloth (as here) at 75¢. This edition contains the same five-page "Introductory" section found in the Bentley first edition (and omitted from the later 1899 Funk & Wagnalls edition). Hawthorne's neo-Gothic horror novel ARCHIBALD MALMAISON, first published in 1879 in London by Richard Bentley and Son, is his most melodramatically effective work of fiction. "Hawthorne's most powerful horror story ..." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 196. "Crowded with many Gothic manifestations, it arouses still the horror intended ... The story proved to be one of Hawthorne's most popular, both in England and America ..." - Bassan, Hawthorne's Son: The Life and Literary Career of Julian Hawthorne (1970), pp. 126-27. The author is at his most assured in this book, in perfect control of his material, and a pleasure to observe. A contemporary review in The London Times was typical of its reception abroad: "After perusal of this weird, fantastic tale, it must be admitted that upon the shoulders of Julian Hawthorne has descended in no small degree the mantle of his more illustrious father. The climax is so terrible, and so dramatic in its intensity, that it is impossible to class it with any situation of modern fiction. There is much psychological ingenuity shown in some of the more subtle touches that lend an air of reality to this wild romance." Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2-77. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 107. Bleiler (1978), p. 96. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992). Other than a few insect tracks to rear panel and hint of fading to spine, a bright, fine copy. (#130730)

        STRAY LEAVES FROM STRANGE LITERATURE

      1884. Stories. Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1884. Original dark royal blue cloth decorated in black. First Edition of Hearn's first book (other than an 1882 translation of Gautier). This was Hearn's attempt to reconstruct "fantastically beautiful stories from the exotic literature which fascinated him" [OCAL].~Born in the Ionian Islands of Irish-Greek parents, Hearn was educated in England and then in France. (As a schoolboy in England he lost the sight of his left eye in an accident at play; constant reading overtaxed his right eye, over time greatly enlarging it. Partly for this reason, Hearn was afflicted with a morbid inferiority complex.) He emigrated to the United States in 1869, at the age of nineteen; his early years in the U.S. were spent in New York, Cincinnati and then New Orleans, where his principal success as a writer was in writing grotesque and macabre sketches for periodicals. It was not until 1890 that Hearn went to Japan, where he spent the rest of his life.~This copy is in dark royal blue cloth, one of at least seven colors that were used without precedence. It is in near-fine condition -- both endpapers have a very discreet repair at the gutter, but externally the book is essentially fine. Blanck 7912. Housed in a morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.

        A monograph of the Meropidae, or family of the bee-eaters.

      London, published by the author, 1884-1886. Folio (380 x 280mm). pp. xix, (1), 1-40, 40a, 40b, 41-144, with 34 hand-coloured lithographs by J.G. Keulemans. Contemporary half morocco, gilt lettered and decorated spine in 6 compartments. The Meropidae was published by the author in five parts between 1884 and 1886.The descriptive text of 144 pp by Dresser also included introductory notes by Frank E. Beddard mainly on the anatomy of the species. An important monograph, 'The Meropidae' is one of three major monographs published by Dresser. The others are 'History of the Birds of Europe 1871-96' still the largest and most complete work on this subject, and 'A Monograph of the Coraciidae 1893'. All have illustrations by Keulemans. Johannes Gerardus Keulemans (1842-1912) began his career as a taxidermist providing stuffed birds to the State Museum of Natural History at Leiden. The Director of that Museum encouraged Keulemans to pursue his love of natural history, where he obtained a scientific appointment after an expedition to West Africa in 1865-66. His accomplishments in illustration came to the notice of Richard Bowdler Sharpe, later a Director of the British Museum, who encouraged him to move to England. He quickly achieved wide recognition and established himself as the most popular bird artist of the late Victorian period. The Bee-Eaters are a group of near passerine birds in the family Meropidae. Most species are found in Africa but others occur in southern Europe, Madagascar, Australia and New Guinea. They are characterised by richly coloured plumage, slender bodies and usually elongated central tail feathers. All are colourful and have long downturned bills and pointed wings, which give them a swallow-like appearance when seen from afar. A fine copy of the rarest and most beautiful of Dresser's monographs.//Fine Bird Books p. 72; Zimmer p. 178; Nissen IVB, 269; Anker p. 56.

        The Man versus the State: Containing "The New Toryism," "The Coming Slavery," "The Sins of Legislators" and "The Great Political Superstition.

      London: Williams & Norgate,, 1884. Reprinted from The Contemporary Review, with a Postscript. Octavo (209 x 134 mm). Bound second in a volume of 3 pamphlets, near-contemporary red half calf, green morocco label to spine, raised bands decorated in gilt and compartments ruled in blind, purple pebbled cloth, edges speckled red. Bookplate and library label to front pastedown, library stamp to front free endpaper, some pencil annotations to contents. Light rubbing to extremities, minor wear to corners, boards sunned, hinges cracked but holding, endpapers browned from turn-ins, a very good copy. First edition in book form of Spencer's most scathing and anti-socialist protest against the dangers of incremental legislative reforms, The Man versus the State, first published as four separate articles between February-July 1884. Spencer's journalistic writings of the late 1870s and early 1880s culminated "in his famous polemic against 'the new Toryism' (that is, the social reformist wing of Gladstonian Liberalism), published in 1884 as The Man versus the State. In this he denounced the Liberals for having lost their raison d'être of defending personal liberty, and engaging instead in a long sequence of paternalist social legislation: a sequence that included Irish land reform, compulsory education, safety at work, temperance and licensing laws, free libraries, mitigation of the rigours of the poor law, and a host of other issues. In all these spheres Spencer argued that the substantive content of the measures in question was not at issue; if achieved through altruism and voluntary co-operation, as part of spontaneous adaptation of the social organism, then all of them would have claims to be 'progressive'. What was objectionable was the use of the coercive powers of the state, the discouragement given to voluntary self-improvement, and the disregard of the 'laws of life' relating to individuation and natural selection; all of this was tantamount to 'socialism', which in Spencer's view meant the same as 'slavery'. And above all he was horrified by the all-party enthusiasm for annexation of colonies and imperial expansion—the trend for 'white savages' to make war on indigenous peoples—which seemed to subvert all he had predicted about evolutionary progress from 'militant' to 'industrial' societies and states" (ODNB). Bound up with The Man versus the State are the following texts by Spencer: a) Over-Legislation. Reprinted, with additions, from the Westminster Review, for July, 1853. [London:] John Chapman, 1854. Pp. 42. First edition in book form, from the series Chapman's Library for the People, of the essay which criticises the government's overzealous superintendence and its deleterious effect on the public's self-confidence and, therefore, its independence. b) The Classification of the Sciences. [London: Williams & Norgate,] 1871. Pp. 64. 3 plates. Third edition, first published as a brochure in 1864, of an essay in which Spencer continues his discussion on the genesis of science by suggesting that "subjective" and "objective" psychology should be regarded as two separate subjects.

        RAMONA

      1884. A Story. Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1884. 4 pp undated ads. Original mustard yellow cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition. Helen Fiske was born and raised in Amherst Massachusetts, where she was a close friend of Emily Dickinson; in 1852 she married a Capt. Hunt, but by 1865 he and their two children were dead. Close to despair, she turned to writing. In 1873, to relieve her hay fever, she went to Colorado; there she met and married banker William Jackson, living thereafter in Colorado Springs. She soon developed a growing indignation over the mistreatment of native Americans by the whites -- writing her book A CENTURY OF DISHONOR, which she sent to every member of Congress. RAMONA, far and away her greatest work, was next.~On the southern California ranch of Senora Moreno, a haughty Spaniard who refuses to yield to the onrushing tide of American conquest, live her son Felipe and Ramona Ortegna, a half-Indian and half-Scotch girl who does not realize she has been adopted. To this ranch comes Alessandro, a full-blooded Indian, who falls in love with Ramona and has his love reciprocated until Senora Moreno, enraged at the union between her adopted daughter and an Indian, attempts to sever the romance. Alessandro returns to his native village, which he finds has been destroyed by the Americans, who have also killed his father in seizing the Indian land... [OCAL]~To this day the old Estudillo estate in San Diego is known as "Ramona's Marriage Place," and tourists are encouraged to believe that Ramona and Alessandro were actual persons.~This copy is in mustard yellow cloth (one of several colors offered simultaneously), and is in near-fine condition (very light cover soil, as one would expect with this color cloth); there is scarcely any wear, and the original decorative endpapers are present and intact. This classic western tale has become rather scarce in collectible condition. Blanck 10456; a "Johnson High Spot" selection.

      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.
