Alcée Chastant, M. D.
New Orleans: E. A. Brandao & Co, 1885. "So far as regards the human species, analogous facts concerning the illicit mixture of the primitive classes are related in the language of the Hindoos, where all the degrees of mongrelism have names, and form a collection of human varieties, more intricate even than those of the miscegenation of the black and the white. If then, there is no fecundation, no hybridation of the two kingdoms, where the election, the mixing and the combination of the principles transmitted do not comprise all the characters, as well anatomical as physiological, what then must we think of the incongruities of morbid and pathological heredity, which through the duality of seminal principles may likewise have the same pathological results as has the hybridation of physical and physiological qualities of zoological beings?" ESSAY -ON THE- Inherency of Morbid Principles -THEIR- Occulations and Transmutations, -TO THEIR- ULTERIOR PATHOLOGICAL FORMS, OR ENTITIES. ALCÉE CHASTANT, M. D. New Orleans: E. A.

ROSSETTI, Christina
Society For Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1885. First edition. 8vo. Publisher's navy blue cloth, lettered gilt with gilt vignette to the upper cover. All edges red. Black coated endpapers. Inscribed by Rossetti to the front endpaper verso, "Dr Hare, from his old friend and patient Christina G. Rossetti". A near fine copy with a couple of light marks to the boards. A charming association copy of Rossetti's reading diary, inscribed by her for the family doctor Dr Charles G. Hare, in whose care Rossetti was under "more or less constantly" between 1845 and 1850. The book, in the form of a diary, is perhaps the most autobiographical of Rossetti's works, mixing poetry and prose. Having suffered from various maladies including a bout of Graves disease Christina never fully regained her previous strength and her weakened heart left her permanently under the care of her physician. Her brother William wrote that one could not understand his sister unless one recognises that she "was an almost constant and often a sadly-smitten invalid." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Alice's Adventures In Wonderland 1885 early Edition. Dispatched with Royal Mail Special Delivery Service and delivery will cost me more than I am asking the purchaser to pay. This book does have the signs of being aged. It has been kept in its plastic sleeve since I purchased it back in 2012 from a small book shop and has hardly left the bookcase. It has been very well preserved. There are no doodles, scribbles or notes and just the odd browning/ age spots on pages due to how old it is. All pages are present and it truly is a beautiful book.

Rockefeller, Glenco New York to the front endpaper. Comprised of 354 densely written pages documenting the daily comings-and-goings at her father Jonas W. Rockefeller's house, where she would eventually take over the duties of hostess following her mother Jane's death ten years later. Census records for Glenco show that by 1910, she remained single and had even taken over as head over household following her father's death. But in the period documented in the present caller diary, Amanda was in her mid 20s, learning how to schedule the family's social calendar, manage relationships with tradesmen, and document major life events in her community. At the time of Amanda's diary, the hamlet of Glenco Mills "contained a good flouring mill, saw-mill, several large shops, a neat chapel of the Methodist Church, and about eighty inhabitants" including a sheriff, deputy, postmaster, and practicing physician (Ellis, 1878). The Rockefeller family owned land and ran a thriving household. Amanda's social diary is rich with information about local inhabitants' visits -- including numerous single and married women coming to share news, exchange sewing and knitting, and generally keep her company. Many names, including Anne E. Moffat, Lizzie Haynor, and Kate Hofner are regulars to the house and appear to live close by. Others, Amanda marks with the place of their residence (New York, Dryden, and towns in Virginia and Ohio are common) … [Click Below for Full Description]

JAMES, William
Boston: James R. Osgood & Company, 1885. First Edition. Hardcover. Remnant of a newspaper clipping of Henry James, Sr.'s obituary on the front endpaper with resulting shadow to the front pastedown. Rebacked retaining most of the original spine which is now a little dull. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of the subject, the father of William and Henry James. Edited with an introduction by William James who has INSCRIBED and SIGNED the book on the front blank: "Miss Grace Norton/with affectionate regards/Wm. James." Grace Norton, sister of Charles Eliot Norton, was an expert on Montaigne and the works of other French authors. She was a frequent correspondent of both William and Henry James. Books signed by this great American psychologist and philosopher are excessively scarce. William James, brother of the noted novelist Henry James, Jr., is generally considered to be, along with Emerson, the greatest philosophic American mind. He is best known for his book VARIETIES OF RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE and his theory of Pragmatism, an advanced philosophy based on the doctrine that truth is based on experience and observation.

Anon.
1885. China A fine example of a late Qing dynasty xylographic-printed city map entitled, in its upper right corner, Guangdong Sheng Cheng Quan Mian - or 'Map of the City in Guangdong Province'. The fan is constructed of lacquered and painted bamboo, with the map woodblock-printed on one side of cream coloured paper. The guardsticks show stylized images of houses and people. The fan measures approx. 29.5 cm long and 49 cm. wide when opened. The map itself illustrates and names temples and pagodas, walls, gates, streets and fortifications, public wells, the armory, the civil service examination hall and many other official and public buildings witin the city. Geographical features of the city such as mountains and waterways are also named and illustrated, as are sailing vessels on the Pearl River at the bottom right corner of the map. Of particular significance is that this map is neither official nor military - as were virtually all maps in China up to this point in time - but instead was intended for the general travelling public as a handy guide around the city. As such it may be one of the earliest 'popular' maps to have been produced in the country. No other example of this particular map seems to have been published. For another rare example of a Chinese woodblock-printed fan map, dated ca. 1885, see History Through Maps, HK Museum of History, 1997, Fig. 1.11. Date: second half of the 19th century. Condition: Excellent for its age. A tiny separation on the top edge of one fold is the only sign of wear. .

Webster, Charles
New York: Charles Webster Company, 1885-1892. Charles Webster. The "Shoulder Strap" Collection with Grant in PeaceA Truly Rare Set of Shoulder StrapsCharles L. Webster & Company, Mark Twain's publishing house, published the legendary "Shoulder Strap" set of books by and about Union generals. We have added on Adam Badeau's Grant in Peace.This famous collection, originally pushed by Webster's son-in-law Samuel Clemens, has come to be known at the "Shoulder Strap" series, because of the distinct green binding featuring shoulder straps with each of the general's stars on the spine. The Hancock and Crawford volumes are the most difficult to find and are included.A truly essential set for any student of the Civil War, being equally important. readable, and collectable! This set includes a first edition of Adam Badeau's GRANT IN PEACE, included here because of the clear intent of the publisher to design a book that fits with their competitor's set. We feel that the inclusion of Badeau in the already truly rare full set of Webster, with shoulder straps on all volumes, makes for a one-of-a-kind set. In other words, "rare." Light and usual overall wear on all volumes, w/ varying degrees of foxing; else very good condition for all volumes.Webster, Charles Company.

STEVENSON, Robert Louis
Chatto & Windus, 1885. First edition. Original blue-green cloth with red floral motif and gilt titles to spine. Author's presentation copy to his mother, inscribed, "The author to his mother, Skerryvore, Bournemouth." A very good copy indeed, minor wear to the extremities and fragile hinges. Housed in a custom made quarter morocco box. An important association copy. The only child of Thomas and Margaret Stevenson, Robert Louis was very sickly as a child and was doted upon by his mother. As he grew up he had a strained relationship with his authoritarian and distant father, and they had several fallings out. All this contributed to the unusually close relationship between Stevenson and his mother, who was deeply proud of her son's achievements. Stevenson's presentation copies to her are a testament to the most personal and fundamental of influences. Prince Otto was largely written between April and December 1883 and Stevenson's writing process for the book was unusual in the extreme. He said that it, "was written at Hyères; it took me about five months" and he called Prince Otto, "my hardest effort". This seems to have been a fair judgement since one of the chapters was written eight times by Stevenson and once by his wife. Nonetheless, on its publication in 1885, it received some very positive reviews. Andrew Lang in the Pall Mall Gazette wrote somewhat floridly that: "it is a book to be drunk in one long breath, like a draught of sunny Moselle from a tapering, iridescent Venetian goblet"! The tale of a faraway land in all its glorious obscurity was well received largely du … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRANT, Ulysses S.
1885. One legal folio folded at the top to make four pages. Old folds as filed, soiling and small tears at the extremities of the folds, very good or better. A certified handwritten copy prepared in March 1885, shortly before Grant's death, of an 1880 contract between Grant and Lewis B. Brown of New York City. Signed by various clerks with one seal, but NOT SIGNED BY GRANT. The document gives Grant ".forever a right of way to the Atlantic Ocean from Seabrook (now Ocean) Avenue over and upon the lot. and the privilege to erect a bathing house of moderate size upon the Shore of said Ocean. ." Presumably the "bathing house" was what we'd call a cabana. The document has been docketed and stamped in 1887, two years after Grant's death. Grant's shore house served as the Summer White House during his two terms from 1869-1877, obviously this right-of-way was issued after his term was over.
