Henry D Thoreau
Edinburgh: David Douglas, 1884. Condition: Very Good binding. First British Edition of Thoreau's Walden, though more accurately the First American printing for British sale. Follows the twenty first American edition of 1883, except for the following: printed on laid paper, without the battered 'THE END' on the final page, with two integral pages of advertisements at the rear, and new integral title and content pages. As later American editions use the same contents page and similarly drop 'THE END,' it can be supposed that this edition was printed in America and bound in Scotland. Bookplate of Francis Hemming on the front pastedown, a prolific English lepidopterist. Initialized gift inscription on the verso of the front endpaper, dated 1890, facing the title page. Publisher's green pebbled cloth, with paper title label on spine, now faded and chipped at the top and bottom. Collates complete, with publisher's advertisements; 357, [3] pp. [Attributes: First Edition]

Edgar Allan Poe
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1884. Condition: Very good +. First U.S. edition, elephant folio size, 73 pp. "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is considered one of the best poems in the English language, known for its lyrical rhythm and use of repetition, as well as supernatural and macabre elements. Poe gained a reputation as a popular writer and became a household name upon its publication in 1845, although he continued to struggle financially for the rest of his life. One of the first writers to attempt to make a living solely off his work, Poe's work greatly affected the burgeoning genres of horror and science fiction, and much of his work, like "The Raven", explores the tumultuous depths of the human psyche. This beloved poem has been published and illustrated many times; this volume is the first U.S. edition containing wood engravings by French printmaker and illustrator Gustave Doré (1832-1883), who provided illustrations for numerous well-known titles, such as "Don Quixote" by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra and "Paradise Lost" by John Milton. Here, his engravings match the haunting tones of the poem, with exquisitely detailed linework and stark contrast; the engravings hum with a brooding darkness. The volume also contains a title-page illustration by Elihu Vedder (1836-1923), perhaps best known for his illustrations in "The Rubaiyat"; a talented artist, in addition to illustrations he designed work for Tiffany studios and decorated the hallway of the Reading Room of the Library of Congress with murals which can still be seen today. The full text of "The Raven" … [Click Below for Full Description]

A fascinating piece of European history for those interested in Ancient Greece, or indeed the author and politician, George Grote. Born in Kent in 1794, Grote was a English classical historian, best known for his work 'A History of Greece'. Passionate about Politics, he was considered somewhat of a radical, taking a keen interest in John Stuart Mill's Utilitarian Society. Indeed his first published work was entitled 'Statement of the Question of Parliamentary Reform', and called for radical changes to the British political system. He would later serve three parliaments as an MP before the support in his party 'The Philosophical Radicals' subsided, and he eventually resigned.

[New Orleans]: [Southern Litho. Co. (printer)]
New Orleans: Southern Litho. Co., 1884. Folding lithographic map, with thirteen insets or vignettes. Sheet size: 27 1/2 x 36 3/4 inches. Printed "Stranger's Guide" affixed to front pastedown. Original publisher's blindstamped cloth. Small fold separations, expertly repaired. Very good. A rare and positively-ephemeral item from the New Orleans exposition of 1884, the second world's fair to be held in America. The Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition, held on the centennial of the first known export of cotton from the United States to Great Britain, offered New Orleans a chance to demonstrate to the world how its businesses and infrastructure had been revitalized by Reconstruction. The fair, however, suffered from debt and fraud and was not financially successful. Although the buildings constructed for the fair, held on present-day Audubon Park, were among the largest in the United States to that date, all were dismantled. The map is very detailed, showing New Orleans bounded by Lake Pontchartrain at the top and the Mississippi River at the bottom. The map shows the various levees in the city, as well as cemeteries, parks, and several railroads, including the new Shell Beach Railroad. The thirteen insets or vignette illustrations on the map include: "View of New Orleans in 1719"; "Plan of New Orleans in 1770"; "Rail- Road Map of Louisiana and Texas"; a bird's-eye view of an approach to New Orleans by water; "Ground Plan of the Exposition"; "Perspective View of the Buildings and Grounds from the northeast"; and views of seven individual Pavilions and Halls containin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charles March Gere
PLEASE CONTACT SELLER FOR SHIPPING/POSTAGE QUOTE - - - CHARLES MARCH GERE, RA, RWS (1884-1963) The Severn from Painswick Beacon Signed on the reverse Watercolour 18.5 by 31 cm., 7 ¼ by 12 ¼ in. (frame size 36 by 49 cm., 14 ¼ by 19 ¼ in.) Gere was born in Gloucester and studied at the Birmingham School of Art under E R Taylor. He joined the staff of the art school in 1893. In the 1890s he worked as an illustrator, contributing to The Quest and books illustrated by the Birmingham Group and designing the frontispiece for William Morris’s News from Nowhere (Kelmscott Press, 1892). In his early career he was involved in a number of the arts and crafts, designing embroidery, metalwork and stained glass and painting the reredos in the Chapel at Madresfield. Gradually, however, he became almost exclusively a landscape painter. In about 1904 he and his sister Margaret settled in Painswick, near Stroud, and many of his subjects were found in the surrounding Cotswolds, which was to become his favourite painting ground. He exhibited at the New Gallery, Society of Painters in Tempera, Royal Academy, New English Art Club, Royal Watercolour Society and Art Workers Guild. A memorial exhibition was held in Gloucester in 1963.

Oberlé 226 à 228 ; Vicaire 417 (pour des éditions antérieures). Sixième édition, parue 17 ans après la première, de ce grand classique de la littérature gastronomique du XIXe siècle. "Cet ouvrage culinaire est, avec ceux d'Urbain Dubois, un des plus complets et des plus sérieusement traités qui existent ; les recettes que l'on y trouve sont fort recherchées, mais il faut avoir un budget assez important, affecté aux dépenses de table, pour pouvoir suivre les savants conseils de ce maître de l'art culinaire" (Vicaire). "Jules Gouffé, né en 1807, était installé pâtissier au 3, faubourg Saint-Honoré de 1840 à 1855. En 1850, il occupait 28 ouvriers et sa maison était une des plus célèbres de la capitale. Il se retira des affaires, en 1855, pour cause de santé, mais se lassa vite de l'inaction. Alexandre Dumas et le baron Brisse lui proposèrent la place de chef du Jockey-Club qui venait d'ouvrir ses portes en 1867. C'est là qu'il commença son "Livre de Cuisine" qui sera un des mieux prisés du siècle. Gouffé avait pour amis tous les écrivains gastronomes du temps. (...)

PRESTON, T[homas] S[cott] [1824-1891].
New York: Robert Coddington, 1884. First Edition. At the time the book was published the author was domestic prelate to Pope Leo XIII (1881-88), and this copy was presumably specially bound for presentation to the Pope. A letter dated Rome, December 26, 1903, addressed to Mons. W.Howard Chandler from G. Clapin (letter & posted cover mounted on card) attests to the fact that the book came from the Pope's private library and is given by Clapin as a gift. We have been unable to uncover any details respecting Haddon & Co., which in all likelihood was a New York bookbinding firm. Preston began his career as an Episcopalian cleric, converting to Catholicism in 1849. In 1853 he was appointed secretary to Archbishop John J. Hughes, who promoted him in 1855 to the chancellorship of the diocese, an office which he administered until his death. As a vicar-general from 1783 to 1791 he is credited in large part with the successful conduct of the archdiocese under Archbishops McCloskey and Corrigan. He was noted for his conservative views and his active involvement in social relief work. "In recognition of his versatility as a confessor, preacher, and writer, he was appointed a domestic prelate to His Holiness (Dec. 13, 1881 and later a prothonotary-apostolic (August 21, 1888) by Pope Leo XIII. 8vo. pp. 241. presentation binding by Haddon & Co. presumably of New York: tan calf, covers paneled in gilt & with red leather onlays, central oval stamp in gilt with red leather onlays of Saint Peter, lettered 'Ubi Petrus, Ibi Ecclesia', surrounded by 'Sanctitati Suae Leoni XIII Pont.

1884. Broadside. Striking orange broadside measuring 20 1/4" x 26 1/8". Shows multiple folds with several very small holes at fold lines with slight crease at center fold. Light chipping to edges with 3/4" x 1/2" chip missing from bottom edge, not affecting text. Three red underscores within time table. Light soiling. Several errant pencil marks on verso. Pinholes in each corner. Time table for the Central Pacific line from San Francisco to Deming, New Mexico. Also includes spurs to Ogden, Utah across Nevada and the Amador Branch to Calt, Cicero, Carbondale and Ione, California. Recto posts "Rules and Regulations for Employees." Most of the rules and regulations deal with train activity, rights of way, signals and safety but also calls for a total prohibition of the use of intoxicating drinks (at all times) and smoking (on passenger trains). The Central Pacific was authorized by Congress in 1862 under the leadership of the Big Four, Leland Stanford, Collis Huntington, Charles Crocker, and Mark Hopkins. We celebrate the 150th anniversary of the union of the Central Pacific with the Union Pacific at Promontory, Utah in 2019 completing the first transcontinental railroad in the United States. The Central Pacific line was leased by the Southern Pacific in 1885. Unlike many timetables created for public use, this was an internal timetable for employees use. Not found in commerce or OCLC as of December 2018. ; 1 pp .

HARRY TRUMAN
HARRY TRUMAN (1884-1972). Truman was the Thirty-Third President. TLS. 1pg. 7” x 9”. January 17, 1952. The White House, Washington. A typed letter signed “H.S.T.” by Harry Truman as President on “The White House” stationery. Truman forwarded a confidential memorandum about Uruguay to Secretary of State Dean Acheson. “Attached is a copy of a memorandum which I requested the Ambassador at Montevideo to send to me. It is an analysis of the ‘Nine-Man’ Executive Commission that will rule Uruguay. I thought you would like to see a copy of it. H.S.T.” There are staple holes in the upper left corner. The five-page, typed memorandum is included. It details the new, nine-member “Collegiate” council that abolished the Presidency and began to rule Uruguay on March 1, 1952. It is a very thorough report that covers a brief history of democracy in Uruguay, the organization of the new system, the leanings of probable council members, the lack of public support for the new system, and its potential effects on Uruguay-United States relations. Early-20th century Uruguayan President Josà Batlle y Ordà ñez (1856-1929) and Argentinean dictator Juan Perà n (1895-1974) are mentioned. Both the letter and the memorandum are in very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Kussmaul, Adolf, Mediziner (1822-1902)
Wohl Straßburg, 16. V, 1884. 2? SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten über die letzte Bootsfahrt seines Sohnes Eduard: "[...] am Montag wollte er zu uns zurückkehren. Im April wollte ich mit ihm nach Stettin reisen, um ihn dort der kaiserl. Schiffswerfte anzuvertrauen. Ein unüberwindlicher, dämonischer Zug und Trieb hatte ihn stets zum Wasser geführt und beherrscht. Er sollte uns nicht mehr sehen. Mit meinem s. z. Grönländerkahn hatte der Verwegene über den Rhein gese[t]zt [...] und bei dem Hochwasser überschwemmten Damme schlug der Kahn um, er fand festen Boden unter den Füßen. Hätte er ausgeharrt, bis 3 Freunde im nahen Segelboot ihn erreicht haben würden [...] Aber mit vermessnem Muthe stieg er nochmals in den kleinen Kahn, nochmals schlug derselbe um und jetzt versank er in dem Strom um nicht mehr aufzutauchen. Bis zur Stunde ist seine Leiche noch nicht gefunden. 25 Jahre Sorgen um den einzigen Sohn liegen in dem Fluthen begraben [...]". - Adolf Kußmaul promovierte in Würzburg über "Untersuchungen über den Einfluß, welchen die Blutströmung auf die Bewegungen der Iris und andere Teile des Kopfes ausübt", habilitierte sich kurz darauf in Heidelberg und wurde Professor der Inneren Medizin in Erlangen, Freiburg i. B. und schließlich in Straßburg. Die 1874 von ihm beobachtete "große Atmung" bei Diabetes wurde später nach ihm "Kußmaulsche Atmung" genannt. Als vielseitiger Wissenschaftler befaßte er sich mit verschiedenen Teilbereichen der Medizin und war darüber hinaus literarisch tätig (u. a. "Jugenderinnerungen eines alten Arztes", 1899). … [Click Below for Full Description]
