ABBOTT, EDWIN ABBOTT; [A SQUARE, pseud ]
London: Seeley & Co, 1884. First edition. Original wrappers. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, PRESENTATION COPY, OF ABBOTT'S CLASSIC, INSCRIBED ON THE HALF-TITLE: "P.E. Matheson / With the Author's kind regards". "Edwin Abbott's Flatland may be one of the most unclassifiable works of literature ever published. While it is acknowledged to be a classic of early science fiction, a work of Victorian social satire, and a religious allegory, it also presents, through its introduction to higher dimensions, an important contribution to the development of an area of mathematics that was eventually merged into non-Euclidean geometry. Flatland is an unusually effective work that spans disciplines and challenges divisional categories. Since its publication in 1884, the book's popularity has continued today as its readers have embraced it as science fiction, popular science, and metaphysics. Working from the groundwork of philosophical issues raised by Plato's Republic, Flatland merges social satire and geometry to produce a novel situated in two-dimensional space, a believable world populated by memorable inhabitants whose geometric shapes designate their positions in a complex social structure, one that bears some resemblance to the Victorian class structure" (Lila Marz Harper, Flatland). Provenance: Presented by Abbott to Percy Ewing Matheson, Oxford classical scholar and author. Published pseudonymously by Abbott as "A Square". London: Seeley & Co., 1884. Octavo, original paper wrappers with illustrated vellum jacket. Early repairs to jacket at spine a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Falke, Jakob von
Berlin, Spermann o.J. 1884 - Bemerkungen: Tadellos erhaltene Originalausgabe. Beiliegend ein altes Exemplar (1917) einer Werbepostille Thüringer Zenral-Saat-Stelle. Jakob Ritter von Falke galt als Koryphäe seiner Zeit, die historistische Wiedergewinnung des Geistes der Renaissance auch in der Garten- und Landschaftskunst zur Anwendung zu bringen. Gerade seine geschichtswissenschaftliche Expertise bei mittelalterlischen Kunstgütern ließ ihn zum Verfechter der aus der Renaissance in die Moderne geretteten Auffasung werden, dass von den darstellenden Künsten die Gartenkunst ob ihrer Dreidimensionalität die Höchste sei. Von Falke war nach 1858 Bibliothekar und Direktor der Gemäldegalerie des Fürsten zu Lichtenstein und seit 1864 zugleich Kustos und Direktorstellvertreters am k. k. österreichischen Museum für Kunst und Industrie (dem heutigen Museum für angewandte Kunst). „Falke ist vielfach als Schriftsteller des kulturgeschichtlichen und kunstgewerblichen Faches mit großem Erfolg tätig gewesen, wobei ihm insbesondere eine seltene Gabe, die Resultate der wissenschaftlichen Forschung durch gediegene populäre Darstellung zum Gemeingut aller zu machen, Anerkennung erwarb.“ (wikipedia) Sein Werk „der Garten“ war seine letzte Publikation, geschrieben im Wissen eines umfassend geschichtskundlich gebildeten Geistes. Beschreibung: Halblederband der Zeit mit Rücken- und Lederrandvergoldungen. Format/ Einband 27,5 x 20,5 cm; Vor- und Nachsatz im Goldschmuckdruck; 159 Seiten/ 68 Abbildungen von Parkanlagen, Parkstilelementen und (vielen italienischen) Landschaften teil … [Click Below for Full Description]

Liljefors, Bruno (1860-1939)
Svart tusch på papper. Signerad i bilden med initialer. Spår av vikning, lätt nötta kanter och någon kort bristning. 35,5 × 30 cm. Omslagsskiss till det första av två album Karrikatyrer som Bruno Liljefors utgav på eget bevåg i tjugoårsåldern 1884-85, och som återger "komiska situationer i djurvärlden med eller utan inblandning av pojkar" (Carl G. Laurin). Det publicerade omslaget pryds av samma motiv som här, dock i form av en akvarell. Häftena räknas i viss mån till svensk serietidningshistoria, och utgavs 1990 i faksimil med efterord av Teddy Brunius.

George, Sir Ernest. (1839-1922).
London, The Fine Art Society. 1884 - Sprache: English Original Etching. 26 cm x 37 cm. Original, vintage etching by Sir Ernest George. Signed in the plate, not in pencil ! Only very faint signs of some foxing. Mounted, ready to be framed. With descriptive Letterpress by Ernest George (included is a wonderful historic explanation regarding this old location in London by Ernest George). Sir Paul Pindar (1565–1650) was a merchant and, from 1611 to 1620, was Ambassador of King James I of England to the Ottoman Empire. Born in Wellingborough and educated at Wellingborough School Pindar entered trade as the apprentice to an Italian merchant in London. He later became involved when he received Company Articles to the Ottoman Empire on 27 September 1611. As secretary to the English ambassador in Constantinople he arrived in December 1611, eventually becoming ambassador himself. Pindar was present when the famous gift of an organ was made to the royal household by Ambassador Lello and he went on to become a favourite of Safiye Sultan the powerful mother of Sultan Mehmet III. The frontage of Paul Pindar's house on Bishopgate is preserved in the Victoria and Albert Museum. As ambassador he was "renowned for his generosity in educating young men at his own 'care and cost'" He was recalled on 25 January 1618 but did not leave until May 1620. Pindar was knighted by James I in 1623. A pamphlet published in London in 1642 states that Pindar saved the life of a felon named "Running Jack" who had been sentenced to death. The prisoner "was found to have bin such a notorious Malefactor, t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dictionnaire de biographie française, VI, 1104-1105. Numa Broc, Dictionnaire illustré des explorateurs français du XIXe siècle, Afrique, pp. 40-41.Ancien élève de l'Ecole Polytechnique, Gustave Borgnis-Desbordes (Provins, 1839 - Hanoï, 1900) fit une campagne en Cochinchine entre 1868 et 1871. Après son retour, il servit à l'inspection générale de l'artillerie de marine sous la direction du général Frébault. Puis il effectua, de 1880 à 1883, trois importantes campagnes dans le Haut-Sénégal et le Haut-Niger (le Mali actuel) qui établirent, d'une manière durable, la présence française dans la région. Promu colonel en 1883, il partit l'année suivante pour le Tonkin comme commandant de l'artillerie du corps expéditionnaire. La présente correspondance couvre la période du 16 septembre 1884 au 3 novembre 1885 : elle évoque la traversée jusqu'à Saïgon, l'installation à Hanoï, les combats contre les Chinois, les pertes en hommes et l'épidémie de choléra (mort du capitaine Pietri). Il est aussi question de la retraite précipitée de Lang Son (28 mars 1885), pour laquelle Borgnis-Desbordes rédigea un rapport concluant à la responsabilité du colonel Herbinger qui l'avait ordonnée, et qui provoqua, en France, la chute du ministère Jules Ferry. A l'issue de cette campagne, l'Annam et le Tonkin furent placés sous protectorat français. Parmi ces lettres, 15 sont … [Click Below for Full Description]

Orig. green pictorial cloth, blocked & lettered in black & gilt; v. sl. rubbing to extremities, but still a v.g. bright copy. Kéraban-le-Têtu, 1883. This is the FIRST ENGLISH EDITION of the first part; Part II, Scarpante the Spy was published by Sampson Low the following year. The Jules Verne Collectors? Bibliography suggests that both parts may not have been published until 1886, citing the fact that no copies have been seen with ads dated before October of that year. Myers states, ?the question remains whether or not there are copies with earlier dated ads.? However, we have seen a copy of the second part with ads clearly dated October 1884. Both English parts are extremely scarce. JVE V025. Myers 32. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Only very faint signs of some foxing. Mounted, ready to be framed. With descriptive Letterpress by Ernest George (included is a wonderful historic explanation regarding this old location in London by Ernest George). Wych Street was a street in London, roughly where Australia House now stands on Aldwych. It ran west from the church of St Clement Danes on the Strand to a point towards the southern end of Drury Lane. The street was demolished by the London County Council in around 1901, as part of the redevelopment that created the Kingsway and Aldwych. The area around Drury Lane was not affected by the Great Fire of London, and contained decrepit Elizabethan houses, with projecting wooden jetties. The Angel Inn public house was at the bottom of Wych Street, by the Strand. To the west, about halfway along on the north side, was the New Inn, an Inn of Chancery where Sir Thomas More received his early legal education, and, to the south, Lyon's Inn, another Inn of Chancery where Sir Edward Coke was a reader in 1578, which was replaced by a Globe Theatre and the Opera Comique in c.1863. At the western end was Drury House, the house of Sir Robert Drury, from which Drury Lane took its name, later rebuilt as Craven House by Lord Craven, and finally turned into a public house, the "Queen of Bohemia", named after Lord Craven's mistress, Elizabeth of Bohemia, the daughter of James I. This building was later demolished … [Click Below for Full Description]
