Gilder, William H. :
Leipzig, Brockhaus 1884. X, 384 Seiten. Mit 46 Abbildungen in Holzschnitt und 3 Karten. Dekorativ illustriertes Originalleinen mit Gold- und Schwarzprägung, gr.8°. Rücken etwas fleckig, leichte Papierbräunung, wie üblich, ansonsten ein gutes Exemplar. Hier die Ausgabe in der weitaus selteneren roten Variante des Originalleinens mit der abweichenden Illustration und reicher Gold- und Silber- und Schwarzprägung auf dem Vorderdeckel. - Gilder versuchte auf dieser Expedition, das Schicksal der Jeannette-Expedition unter Kapitän De Long aufzuklären. Während der Überwinterung in der St.-Lawrence-Bucht brannte jedoch das Expeditionsschiff 'Rodger' ab, und die Mannschaft konnte sich nur in Booten an die Küste retten, wo sie nur mit Hife der Tschuktschen überleben konnte. 'With excerpts from diaries ... and reconstruction of latter stages of the Jeannette expedition ... Notes throughout on Chukchis, Yakuts, travel conditions, regions traversed and settlements visited.' (Arctic Bibliography 5744).

Viollet-Le-Duc, E. E.]
Paris, Librairie Centrale d'Architecture Des Fossez et Cie, 1884. Folio (48.8 x 34.5 cm). Frontispiece portrait (heliogravure); iii pp.; 100 plates on 91 leaves. Original burgundy half morocco over marbled boards. Spine with five stipple-gilted raised bands, gilt ornamental lines at head and foot, and gilt title. Floral patterned endpapers; red speckled edges. A very special copy, with the printed text "Edition de Luxe No. 239. Exemplaire souscrit par M. J. Carbonnier" on the half-title verso. Several different printing techniques and different types of paper were used for this "deluxe" edition. Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc (1814-1879) ".was a French architect and theorist, especially known for his interpretive 'restorations' of medieval buildings. Born in Paris, he was a major Gothic Revival architect. His works were largely restorative and few of his independent building designs were ever realised. Strongly contrary to the prevailing Beaux-Arts architectural trend of his time, much of his design work was largely derided by his contemporaries" (Wikipedia). A few plates with a few small spots, i.e. much cleaner than usual. Rare in the original binding, especially when so well-preserved as this copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Everywhere they are asking 'What can I do to hasten the New Day.'

On les a ramassés dans un petit journal de 1869, oublié maintenant, la Vieillesse, et on les publie aujourd'hui, par la raison qui fait faire des cartons chez Gastine-Reinette pour la gloire des plus forts tireurs au pistolet." Historien français, spécialiste de l'histoire religieuse, professeur au Collège de France de 1854 à 1885, Eugène Auguste Ernest Havet (1813-1889) a publié une édition des Pensées de Pascal, dont Barbey a rendu compte, et Le Christianisme et ses origines. Barbey lui dédiera en 1887 les Sensations d'histoire : "Opposés absolument en ce que nous croyons l'un et l'autre la vérité religieuse, nous nous sommes tendus la main et nous nous sommes unis de coeur dans ce sentiment de la confiance qui est au dessus de tout et auquel Dieu doit tous pardonner même l'erreur" (Correspondance générale, 9).
