Two chromolithographs, four etchings, four illus. of the chromatic circle on two plates, six full-page silhouettes, two photolithographs, two leaves of limitation & colophon, & eleven tipped-in paper samples. Printed on 44 different kinds of paper & in many colors. Two parts in one vol. 8vo, orig. printed wrappers bound-in cont. red half-morocco & marbled boards, spine richly gilt, t.e.g., others uncut. [Blois: R. Marchand, 1884]. First edition of this tour-de-force of book- and papermaking, limited to 250 numbered copies, signed by the author and the publisher. Originally issued in separate fascicles, this is a remarkable, complex, and beautiful book, printed on 44 different kinds of paper and employing complex combinations of color and printing techniques. The book was issued to demonstrate the newest techniques of printing and styles of book design. The first three sections contain essays on the history of paper, ink, and the use of color in printing. This third part is particularly dazzling as each typographical border of every page has been printed using different color combinations to demonstrate the contrasts and harmonies of combining colors. The second part -- "Applications" -- is printed on various kinds of tinted paper (mostly coming from various named French mills but including a few Dutch and English mills), all printed and decorated employing flamboyant combinations of types and ink colors. Eleven original samples of rare papers, from ancient papyrus to modern Japanese, are tipped-in at end.

Goddard, George
[Leicester, UK?], [c.1884]. Broadsheet [4pp.] Small octavo [20.5 cm] Very good. Forty-one lines over two pages with blanks to be filled in by hand. This short work by Goddard is to introduce to the inhabitants of his native town "the fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which God our Heavenly Father has revealed through his servant Joseph Smith." We believe this work was intended to be personalized to the recipient and have another tract laid in at the center "I respectfully ask of you the following: - That you will prayerfully and carefully peruse the enclosed tract." George Goddard (1815-1899) was an English convert and was the Assistant to the General Superintendent for the Deseret Sunday School Union for twenty-six years and is credited with first printing of the 'Articles of Faith' in card form. Not in Flake/Draper. Not in OCLC.

Elephant Folio. Signed by Vedder on Limitation Page. In the ten months from May 1883 to March 1884, Elihu Vedder (1836-1923) completed a series of 54 drawings in pencil, ink, chalk, & watercolor to accompany this 1884 edition of the Rubaiyat. All of these original drawings, which were proclaimed a masterwork of American art, were included in a special exhibition of "Elihu Vedder's Drawings for the Rubaiyat" at the National Museum of American Art in 1998. The exhibition also included two first edition printings of this Rubaiyat with Vedder's "accompaniments." Vedder's edition was an instant success, selling out only six days after its debut in Boston on November 8, 1884. With the Rubaiyat, Vedder set the standard for artist-designed books in America and England. Critics rushed to acclaim it as a masterwork. Vedder is best known for his illustrations of this edition of The Rubaiyat. He died in Rome, Italy, in 1923. [Mantle Fielding's Dictionary of American Paint … [Click Below for Full Description]

Zimmer I, p. 274.Trattazione di 81 specie di Pappagalli (inclusi i Cacatua, le varie specie di Ara e i bellissimi Parrocchetti) con particolare attenzione al loro comportamento in cattività. Di ogni specie viene fornito il nome scientifico, la relativa sinonimia e il nome in varie lingue. Per alcune delle specie trattate vi sono delle notazioni di F. G. Dutton. I primi due volumi vennero pubbliati in diciotto parti: le prime sei nel 1883 e le rimanenti nel 1884, il vol. terzo apparve intero nel 1887. Un quarto volume, in due parti, mai completato e con nove tavole apparve nel 1888, ma è assai raro da trovare, al punto che Zimmer lo cita senza averlo mai visto e il Fine Bird Books non fa menzione del quarto volume. Dal punto di vista iconografico è una delle migliori opere prodotte nella seconda metà dell'ottocento sui pappagalli.

Extremely uncommon promotional publication for Nordenfelt's guns; "When I commenced to write this treatise upon Machine Guns it was my intention to endeavour to give an unbiassed opinion about this subject in general; but I soon found it impossible to avoid comparisons, and I have therefore thought it better to give my own views, 'sans peur et sans reproche,' as to how perfect Machine Guns should be constructed …" (Preface). In Nordenfelt had migrated from Sweden to England in 1866 and established a company trading Swedish steel for finished rails. In 1875 he met the inventor Helge Palmkrantz who had recently patented a multi-barrel, lever-actuated, machine gun, became his backer and British agent, and persuaded Palmkrantz to name the gun the Nordenfelt Machine Gun. Subsequently Nordenfelt was pressured by Rothschild and Vickers to merge with Maxim, in 1888 becoming The Maxim Nordenfelt Guns and Ammunition Company.

STRINDBERG, AUGUST.
Tolf äktenskapshistorier, med interview och förord. Stockholm, A. Bonniers boktryckeri, 1884. (6),293,(1) s. + STRINDBERG, AUGUST. Giftas. Aderton äktenskapshistorier, med förord. Andra delen. Helsingborg, Schmidts boktryckeri-AB, 1886. (4),XXIII,(3),250,(1) s. Två marmorerade hfrbd med upphöjda bind, gröna titeletiketter och övre guldsnitt. Övriga snitt endast putsade. Omslagen medbundna. Första delen med blyertsnoteringar på omslagets baksida. Återkommande, men mycket svaga, fuktränder överst i övermarginalen och ytterst i övre ytterhörnet. Trevligt exemplar ur Per Kjellanders bibliotek.. Zetterlund I:29 respektive I:32. Andra arbetets omslag med förlagsuppgift "Kungsholms bokhandel" på främre omslag och recensionsutdrag ur europeisk press på det bakre. (Till första delen finns inga kända variantomslag.) Novellerna i "Giftas" hör till det mest kontroversiella Strindberg producerade men även till det mest omtyckta. Den första samlingen blev som bekant, på grund av en raljant formulering rörande nattvarden, åtalad för "gäckeri av guds ord eller sakramenten" och belagd med kvarstad. Stadsfogden som kom till förlaget för att hämta böckerna fann dock bara ett par hundra av den i 4000 exemplar tryckta upplagan. Ryktet spreds snabbt och på de flesta håll såldes boken slut innan den hann beslagtas. Opinionen var på Strindbergs sida, och när han motvilligt reste från Ouchy i Schweiz till Stockholm för att svara i målet mottogs han som en hjälte på tågstationen. Rättens utslag blev också friande. Den andra novellsamlingen präglas av en bittrare ton, angreppsmålet har också förskjut … [Click Below for Full Description]

DOSTOÏEVSKY (Théodore)
Paris, E. Plon, Nourrit et Cie, 1884 - 2 vol. in-12 (18,3 x 12 cm), brochés, couvertures jaunes imprimées en noir, faux-titre, titre, 334 pp., 1 f. n. ch., faux-titre, titre, 302 pp., sous emboitages. Édition originale française (pas de grand papier). Est joint une lettre autographe signée, sans date mais très probablement de 1884, incisive et pleine de discernement de J.-K. Huysmans adressée à [Gustave] Geffroy, critique d’art qui contribua à faire connaître les Impressionnistes, romancier et membre représentatif du groupe des naturalistes et fondateur de l’académie Goncourt : "Entendu mon cher Geffroy, pour le lundi, 2 février prochain, à l'heure dite. Avez-vous lu un admirable livre Crime et Chatiment de Dostoïevsky sinon - lisez, lisez - c'est un [fier] rude homme que ce russe ! C'est un fier tonique par ces temps d'Ohnet et de Nizet ! ah ! certes. Merci et bien à vous. J.-K. Huysmans". Exemplaire lavé, comportant quelques pâles rousseurs. Habiles restaurations aux couvertures. C'est probablement en réaction aux Béotiens, récit à clefs vilipendant ses anciens amis de La Jeune Belgique, également publié en 1884 que Huysmans s'en prend à son auteur Henri Nizet (1863 - 1925). Georges Ohnet, auteur à succès, notoirement opposé au naturalisme, fut fréquemment accroché dans la correspondance de J.-K. Huysmans. C'est en 1884 également que parait le maître livre de Huysmans, A Rebours. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

JOULE, James Prescott
London: The Physical Society of London, Taylor and Francis, 1884 Book. Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 2 vols., 1884-1887, folding diagrams (some neat reinforcements to verso), illustrations, lacking portrait frontispiece, a couple of leaves with chips and marginal losses, later half calf. <br><br> Sparrow, Milestones of Science 113. - First Edition. Joule's papers, originally published in various learned journals and even in daily newspapers, are here collected: and they constitute a contribution to scientific progress hardly surpassed in the nineteenth century. The most important papers are those on the nature of heat: and Joule was the first to prove, what Mayer in 1842--45 assumed, the equivalence of heat produced to energy employed. Joule's Laws are the basis of the whole principle of the conservation of energy established by Helmholtz in 1847. Among the inventions thrown out in his researches are the galvanometer, the modern system of electrical units, the measurement of the velocity of a particle of gas, the modern system of electrical welding, the first displacement pump, and the absolute zero of temperature..

Hemyng, Bracebridge.
First Edition. London, John and Robert Maxwell, [1884]. 8°. 126 pages. Original Hardcover (half leather with gilt lettering on spine). Paper covered boards (marbled). Beautiful little binding in very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Endpaper signed by preowner. Extremely Rare ! Bracebridge Hemyng, popular English dime-novelist, or, as he would be called over there, writer of "bloods," was born in London in 1841, the eldest son of Dempster Hemyng of the English bar. Bracebridge was educated at Eton, then, following his father's footsteps, he entered the Middle Temple and was called to the bar in 1862. As a barrister, however, he was not a success. He had begun writing two years before, and contributed "The Curate of Invinsk" to the Morning Star. This being moderately successful, induced him to continue writing, and he soon turned out novels at a great rate, so that in the next twenty-five years he had some fifty to his credit. He began to write for Edwin J. Brett in London in 1868, and on July 23, 1871, the first of his "Jack Harkaway" stories appeared in the weekly Boys of England. It was reprinted in Frank Leslie's Boys' and Girls' Weekly in December of the same year. In 1873 Leslie engaged Hemyng to write exclusively for his papers,and paid him $10,000 a year. Hemyng, consequently, came to America and remained with Leslie for a number of years. In 1874 "Jack Harkaway in America" began in No. 379 of this paper. After some years Hemyng fell out with his publishers and returned to England, but in 1878, before leaving America, he had written two stories … [Click Below for Full Description]

Premier ouvrage en prose de Verlaine, et son premier livre publié par Léon Vanier. Exemplaire de choix, broché, en très bel état. La plupart des exemplaires comportent des rousseurs, le nôtre en est exempt. Conservé dans un étui en demi-maroquin portant sur la première garde l'ex-libris de Robert von Hirsch.

On y trouve notamment, en édition originale, six poèmes d'Arthur Rimbaud parmi les plus fameux : Voyelles, Oraison du soir, Les Assis, Les Effarés, Les Chercheuses de poux, Le Bateau ivre.

London: B.S. Williams (I-VIII) and B.S. Williams & Son (IX-X), 1884. Volume 3 only (of 11), large quarto. (12 1/2 x 10 inches). Text complete and illustrated with 48 superb hand coloured lithograph plates of orchids numbered 97-144 - this volume complete and the plates extraordinarily clean.. Contemporary half blue morocco, a bit rubbed. This important record of the greatest orchid varieties discovered and described during the nineteenth century, with beautiful illustrations of the highest quality by John Nugent Fitch. This important work was published periodically by B.S. Williams from his nurseries in Holloway, London, from 1882 until his death in 1890. His son, Henry Williams, continued the publication. Its selection, based largely on the discoveries made during the nineteenth century, offers an unparalleled record of all the best orchid varieties before the impact of the captive-bred hybrids. The publisher notes, "The great advances which have been made within the last few years in the introduction and the cultivation of Exotic Orchids, have suggested the desirability of devoting a monthly publication to the illustration of the best forms of these singular and aristocratic plants, and also to the explanation of the most successful methods of growing them." In addition there are numerous notes given at the end of the specific descriptions about contemporary orchid collections, shows and growers in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. These offer a valuable glimpse into the world of the late-Victorian orchid enthusiast, and contain information, available no where else, that … [Click Below for Full Description]

COZZENS, Frederic S. (1846-1928)
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1884. Colour-printed lithograph, mounted on card. 14 3/8 x 20 5/8 inches. (of mount) 21 x 27 inches. 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. A Misty Morning, Drifting depicts the steamer Utowana gliding by the idle Nokomis, Crusader and Hildegard, which patiently drift in the calm waters of a windless morning. Jacobsen, Frederic Cozzens. Marine Painter, New York: 1982.
