        Four original albumen paper photographs of the Broken Hill region; each photograph is approximately 200 x 225 mm, on the original glossy cream-coloured mounts printed with the photographer's details (G.F. Jenkinson, Areas Photo Coy, Argent Street, Broken Hill)

      - Jenkinson was active in the region from 1885, according to his advertisement in The History of Broken Hill by Curtis (1908); Davies and Stanbury (1985) have him there from 1889. One of the photographs is captioned in the image '[Sir Hen]ry Parkes at Stephen Creek'. Parkes, Premier of NSW, turned the first sod of the Stephens Creek reservoir in April 1890 and this photograph was clearly taken on the day; he is easily discernible at the front of the crowd, resplendent in his top hat, dress coat and flowing white beard, holding an ornamental shovel (heavily decorated with what is presumably silver). A large marquee in the background, with numerous flags fluttering from it, further sets the scene. The other three photographs are variant views of a construction site at a mine; gentlemen in suits, rather than tradesmen and labourers, are the order of the day, so it may have been a commissioned shoot. However, one view in particular delivers more than it promises, clearly showing a range of basic dwellings (more tents than huts or houses) on the undulations in the background.

Doué pour l'observation et le dessin d'après modèle vivant, Paul Richer (1849-1833) a rapidement été réputé comme étant l'un des meilleurs dessinateur et illustrateur d'anatomie humaine de son époque. Ses compétences et son talent en matière d'anatomie artistique l'ont notamment fait apprécier de Charcot, dont il fut l'élève avant d'être le collaborateur. Le présent ouvrage est le développement de la thèse que Paul Richer soutint devant Charcot en 1881, ouvrage capital sur la doctrine de la Salpêtrière. Les chapitres sur l'hystérie dans l'art et dans l'histoire ont été considérablement étoffés pour cette seconde édition. Intérieur frais, illustrations d'une grande finesse. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        JOURNAL OF THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION HELD UNDER AN ACT OF THE LEGISLATURE AT SIOUX FALLS, DAKOTA, SEPTEMBER, 1885. A.J. EDGERTON, PRESIDENT. JOHN CAIN, SECRETARY

      [Sioux Falls, Dakota: Sioux Falls Leader, 1885. [2],77pp. printed in double columns. Quarto. Later pebbled cloth. Internally clean and fresh. Near fine. The statehood movement in Dakota Territory began in the late 1870s and proceeded fitfully for the next few years, with those in the northern part of the territory, as well as Democrats, generally opposing statehood, and Republicans and those in the south generally in support of the movement. The result of this 1885 convention was a compromise, framing a constitution and providing for the election of state officers, but not making any provisions that might offend the federal Congress in Washington when it considered statehood for the territory. The constitution that emerged from this 1885 convention, however, was the same one (with very minor changes) that was adopted in 1889 when South Dakota became a state. The constitution itself is printed on pages 60-77, the names and home counties of the 111 delegates to the convention are also given, and the daily proceedings of the convention are related in minute detail. This official journal of the proceedings of the 1885 Constitutional Convention, then, is one of the earliest printings of the South Dakota constitution. We can locate a total of thirteen institutional copies of this scarce account of the 1885 journal of the Dakota Territory convention. ALLEN, DAKOTA 336. STREETER SALE 2079. OCLC 8127560.

        SOPHIE ARNOULD d'après sa correspondance et ses mémoires inédits. Les actrices du XVIIIe siècle

      Paris, G. Charpentier et Cie 1885 - Paris, G. Charpentier et Cie, 1885 1 volume in-18 (19 x 12,5 cm), XV-327-(4) pages. Cartonnage bradel pleine percaline bronze doré, pièce de titre de toile lavallière, fleuron noir, date dorée en queue, relié sur brochure, couvertures jaunes imprimées conservées en excellent état, il a été relié en tête le petit papillon indicateur sur cette édition (reliure de l'époque signée PIERSON). Excellent état. Légers frottements aux extrémités des coiffes et coins, un coin avec trace de pli. NOUVELLE ÉDITION, EN PARTIE ORIGINALE. EXEMPLAIRE DE DÉDICACE OFFERT PAR EDMOND DE GONCOURT A OCTAVE UZANNE. Exemplaire sur papier ordinaire (il a été tiré 50 exemplaires de luxe sur papier de Hollande).Cet envoi lapidaire : "à Octave Uzanne, Edmond de Goncourt" s'explique aisément quand on sait que le même Edmond de Goncourt écrira dans son Journal le 20 septembre 1887 (soit 2 années plus tard) : « Uzanne, cet homme qui a une goutte de sperme extravasée dans l'œil. » La relation entre les deux hommes de lettres fut sans doute toujours assez froide. Octave Uzanne empiétait à cette époque sur les plates-bandes d'Edmond de Goncourt en s'intéressant au XVIIIe siècle et aux historiettes qui s'y rapportent. André Salmon écrit à propos d'Octave Uzanne qu'il avait "la réputation d'un disciple un peu cochon des Goncourt." (André Salmon, Souvenirs sans fin, 1903-1940) Sophie Arnould eut trois éditions : chaque nouvelle découverte de documents appelait une nouvelle édition. - 1857, puis 1859 (deuxième tirage), Sophie Arnould d'après sa correspondance et ses mémoires inédits, par Edmond et Jules de Goncourt, Poulet-Malassis et De Broise. L'édition de 1859, deuxième tirage de celle de 1857 eut elle-même un retirage en 1861. - 1877, donc retouché par Edmond seul, titre identique, E. Dentu. - 1885, titre identique, Charpentier (Bibliothèque-Charpentier à 3 fr. 50 le volume) Sophie Arnould (1740-1802) était une actrice et une cantatrice. Elle débuta en 1757, et se retira en 1778. Elle se distinguait, selon ses contemporains, par la finesse de son jeu et l'agrément de sa voix. Elle acquit une grande célébrité par ses bons mots, dont Albéric Deville a fait un recueil intitulé Arnoldiana, ou Sophie Arnould et ses Contemporaines (1813), largement utilisé par les Goncourt. Selon Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun, « Mademoiselle Arnould n’était point jolie ; sa bouche déparait son visage, ses yeux seulement lui donnaient une physionomie où se peignait l’esprit remarquable qui l’a rendue célèbre. On a répété et imprimé un nombre infini de ses bons mots » . Elle créa le rôle éponyme d’Iphigénie en Aulide de Gluck ainsi que celui d' Iole dans Hercule mourant d'Antoine Dauvergne. De sa relation adultère avec le duc de Lauragais, elle eut quatre enfants, dont Antoine-Constant de Brancas, colonel du Premier Empire mort à Essling. Elle fit partie de la société chantante La Dominicale fondée par le célèbre chirurgien Louis et dont furent membres Vadé, Crébillon fils, Pierre-Yves Barré, Coqueley de Chaussepierre.

        Pane of 70 "Altered Plate" Confederate 10-cent Jefferson Davis stamps with an advertisement for "The Old Book Store" printed on the reverse

      1885. This pane of Confederate stamp reprints is from an altered plate of the 1862 5-cent Jefferson Davis stamp (see the note after Scott #s 6-7). Both the stamps and the advertisement are nicely centered. Previously folded with a few small splits along some of the folds. There are several small pieces of what appear to be very thin, transparent, archival tape reinforcing two folds and the margin of the stamp side of the sheet. There has been considerable discussion about the confusion surrounding these altered plate stamps (see The American Philatelist 1888-1889 volumes 3 and 5, Dietz's The Confederate States Post-Office Department: Its Stamps & Stationery published in 1950, Easton's The De La Rue History of British & Foreign Postage Stamps 1855 to 1901 published in 1958, Bennet's "The Stamp That Never Was" in the November 1982 issue of the American Philatelist, and "The 10¢ Typographed Altered Plate of the Confederate States of America" by Leonard H. Hartmann in Issue 192 of The Chronicle of the U.S. Classic Postal Issues published in 2001.) This pane of stamps was used as a broadsheet advertisement for W. B. Burke, the owner of The Old Book Shop in Atlanta, Georgia, circa 1885. In his advertisement, Burke bills himself as The Napoleon of the Book Trade South (J. B. Lippincott having already claimed the sobriquet, The Napoleon of the Book Trade). Burke claims that the stamps were "printed from the genuine plate - captured at the fall of Atlanta - on Confederate made paper." While the stamps were printed from a genuine plate (which Hartmann suggest was broken from a sheet of 100 to a sheet of 70 to fit on the handbill-sized paper) it is unconfirmed-but not impossible-that his plate was captured by Union forces at Atlanta. Very scarce. There are references to partial-sheet examples from this reprint being the collections of George B. Sloan and August Dietz, and auction searches come up with two records for full sheets (one for about $250 and one for $1000). Both of those sheets were in considerably poorer condition than this example.

        Personal Memoirs of U S Grant in 2 Volumes Complete

      New York::: Charles L. Webster & Company,,, 1885, 1886.. . A Fine tight set in full brown sheep leather bindings with green and red spine labels. This set is complete with the facsimile letter of Grant's original terms for Lee's surrender that is often missing. Mark Twain was the publisher of this monumental memoir as well as its editor and proof reader. Twain was extremely fond of and a close friend of Grant and encouraged the President and war hero to write his memoirs. Grant was dying of throat cancer but completed his two volume opus, dictating the second volume to a secretary. Twain noted in a letter to his daughter that the manuscript was not even set yet and 20,000 sets had been ordered from only two states. "Wait till you hear from the other 37." Grant finished his memoirs on July 18, 1885 and died five days later on July 23rd. Following his death, advance orders of the memoirs reached 300,000 sets realizing close to $450,000 for his family which was otherwise penniless. In a 1992 New York Times book review, General Schwarzkopf is quoted as using Grant's two-volume work as his model, calling it the finest military history of the Civil War..

      Charles L. Webster and Company, New York 1885 - First edition, first issue of Mark Twain's masterpiece. Bound in contemporary full blue morocco by Bayntun Riviere, Cosway-style binding with Mark Twain portrait medallion under glass, fleuron cornerpiece designs within gilt frames, raised bands, gilt decor to the spine, front and rear panels, all edges gilt, front cover and spine faded slightly, front joint repaired, wide gilt turn-ins, silk moir? endpapers. An exceptional example. Subscribers who had already purchased Tom Sawyer, and wanted a binding to match, were invited to request a blue cloth binding on Huckleberry Finn instead of the publisher's green. This is one of those blue bindings--twenty times more rare than the green. This copy has all of the commonly identified first issue points (copies were assembled haphazardly by the printer and there is yet to be agreement among bibliographers as to the priority of many points). First issue points include page [9] with "Decided"; p. [13], illustration caption incorrect and p. 57 ("with the was"), p. 155 (final 5 absent), all first states; and p. 283 state 4. BAL 3415; Peter Parley to Penrod, pp. 75-76; MacDonnell, Firsts, vol. 8, no. 7/8, 1998, p. 31. Ernest Hemingway once declared about The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, "All modern literature comes from one book by Mark Twain. It’s the best book we’ve had. All American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing since." Huck has been called "the most praised and most condemned 19th-century American work of fiction" (Legacies of Genius, 47).

        Porträt Herr Mayerhofer, Brustbild im Dreiviertelprofil nach rechts.

      - Kohle, teils gewischt, auf bräunlichem Velin, aufgezogen, rechts unten monogrammiert, bezeichnet und datiert „W.P. fec München 1885 / München Wilhelmine Pfauser fec. 1885", verso auf einem montierten Papier bezeichnet „Dies hier ist Herr Mayerhofer zu München / ein aus gezeichnetes Modell der Akademie. – Wilhelmine Pfauser fec. / München 1885 / G. Mayerhofer legte seine Hand nach der Sitzung auf den Scheitel und Stirne der Zeichnerin und sagte „Sie sind eine Künstlerin! So sehe ich aus" – !". 45,4:32,9 cm. In den Ecken etwas unfrisch und mit Nagellöchlein. Hervorragend realistisch und lebendig erfaßtes Bildnis eines älteren Mannes, eine Akademieübung, das auf eine nicht unbeträchtliche Begabung der Zeichnerin hinweist. Da über die Urheberin des Blattes weiter nichts bekannt ist, ist anzunehmen, daß sie nach dem Besuch der Akademie nicht weiter künstlerisch tätig war.

        Ananga-ranga; (Stage of the bodiless One) or, The Hindu Art of Love. (Ars amoris indica.) Translated from the Sanskrit .

      Cosmopoli, MDCCCLXXXV for the Kama Shastra Society of London and Benares, and for private circulation only,', 'Reprint 1885 - In 1873, Burton prepared an anonymous literal translation of the Kama-Shastra or The Hindoo Art of Love, of which only six copies were printed. It was planned to reissue the work in 1885, but only proofs appeared before plans for publication were abandoned. However, no less than three reprints appeared soon after, all bearing the date 1885.This copy, printed on thick, watermarked paper, conforms to Penzer's description of the first reprint edition, being 'slightly broader than the subsequent reprints', though he had not personally seen a copy of this edition. Burton's Kama Shastra Society and its quasi-scholarly publication of erotic material served as the model for Leonard Smithers' later Erotika Biblion Society. 8vo (190 × 120 mm), pp. xvi, 144. Small diagrams to text. Partially uncut in early twentieth century half morocco. Bookplates of F.P. Richardson and Charles S. Dixwell, together with the latter's inkstamp. Spine faded, but an excellent copy. [Penzer, An Annotated Bibliography of Sir Francis Burton, pp. 171-173.]

        Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade) ...

      New York: Charles L. Webster and Company,, 1885. With one hundred and seventy-four illustrations. Octavo (214 × 164 mm). Publisher's original half morocco, marbled edges, gilt rules to covers, spine lettered gilt with gilt decorated compartments, marbled endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece (second state, with the imprint of the Heliotype Printing Company and with "Karl Gerhardt, Sc." added to the finished edge of the shoulder), illustrated throughout with 173 text illustrations after E. W. Kemble. Spine sunned, extremities and tips worn, covers a little scuffed, some foxing and marks to contents. An excellent copy. First US edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the publishers to Daniel Whitford, Clemens's lawyer: "To Daniel Whitford, with regards of the publisher, Chas. L. Webster. New York, February 21st, 1895." Daniel Whitford, attorney for New York firm Alexander & Green, acted for Webster & Company and was also retained by Clemens several times. He acted for Clemens in the highly publicised lawsuit over the dramatisation of the Prince and the Pauper by Abby Sage Richardson. In 1890, Clemens and the producer, Daniel Frohman, were sued by Edward H. House, who claimed that Richardson's adaptation was plagiarised from House's dramatisation of the novel, written for Clemens years before. Frohman paid House from Clemens's royalties to prevent the closure of the play; in turn, Clemens sued Frohman for his royalties (amounting to five or six thousand dollars) in 1894. More bibliographical baloney has been written about Huckleberry Finn than any other American publication. Only three substantive changes were introduced after the first printing: at p. 13 the erroneous page reference "88" was changed to "87"; at p. 57 the misprint "with the was" was corrected to "with the saw"; and at p. 9 the misprint "Decided" was corrected to "Decides". This copy has all these in first state. The frontispiece was printed separately and inserted at random, and has no relation to the order of the printed sheets. Copies in the original half morocco binding are the least often met with. Less than two weeks before publication, the publisher Webster announced that he was binding 20,000 copies in cloth, another 2,500 in sheep, and 500 copies in half morocco. Webster's own copy, also half morocco, was dated by him as having been received from the binder on 26 November 1884. At some stage it was realised that the Uncle Silas illustration on page 283 had been mischievously tampered with. The offending leaf was cancelled and replaced by a new printing of the plate in cloth copies. In this copy, the illustration is in second state.

        Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

      New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885 Illustrated with 174 illustrations by Edward Windsor Kemble. First edition, with many of the first issue points, including: cancel title leaf with the copyright notice dated 1884 (second state), the illustration "Him and Another Man" listed as page 88 on page 13, "with the was" on page 57, page 283 in the third state with a straight fly on a cancel leaf, third state page 155 with the final five larger than the first, page 161 lacking the signature mark, leaf 238 pasted under the terminal endpaper, frontispiece in the first state with the tablecloth visible and with Heliotype Printing Company imprint. Publisher's decorative green cloth, with an illustration of Huck Finn to the front panel in green and gilt, lettered in green and gilt, pale peach endpapers. About near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, minor fraying to the spine ends and corners, bright spine, clean panels, minor tear to the front hinge, otherwise sturdy spine, short closed tear to the frontispiece and title page, otherwise fresh pages. Overall, a very bright and clean copy, free of any repairs or restorations. BAL 3415. This copy of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is one of the first American editions issued in a green cloth binding. Other bindings for this title include blue cloth, library (sheep) binding, and deluxe (half morocco) binding. While most copies of Huckleberry Finn in all binding variants have a third state title leaf, as "no copy of the published book has been seen, or reported, with the copyright notice dated 1885," this copy has the second-state title page - a cancel leaf that preceded the third-state conjugate leaf, indicating that it may be an earlier issue than the copies with the title leaf in the third state. Additionally, this cloth bound copy contains the definitive issue points on pages 13 and 57, as well as nearly all of the issue points found in cloth copies, with the exceptions of pages 155 and 283; notably, page 283 is usually found in the third state in cloth bindings, and the uncorrected illustration with the curved fly is found almost exclusively in the sheep-bound copies and BAL notes that "no examined copy of the published book has the defaced plate" indicative of the second state. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a pseudo companion novel to Twain's highly successful The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876); although both are set in the antebellum South, Tom Sawyer is the tale of a young boy's mischievous adventures, while Huckleberry Finn involves a disenfranchised youth's moral dilemmas about social conflict. Huckleberry Finn is a youth who runs away from his alcoholic father and befriends Jim, a run-away African-American slave seeking freedom in the North. The dialog of the text features local dialects drawn from Twain's experiences living in the South. When it was first published in the United States in 1885, Huckleberry Finn was highly scrutinized and was banned by several libraries. Interestingly, the text was banned not for its saturation of racist vocabulary and prejudiced world-views, but for its depiction of criminal, lower class white Americans. Although it continued to be challenged in the 20th century for its depiction and treatment of African-Americans, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn remains one of the Great American Novels. Indeed, Ernest Hemingway proclaimed that it was the beginning of American literature: "There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since.". Illus. by Kemble, Edward Windsor. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.
