With 12 full-page photogravure plates ("by the Goupil process") and numerous sketches throughout the text by Maurice Leloir. 1 vols. 4to (12 1/2 x ( inches). A Modern French Master Illustrator. Fine, attractive copy of this beautifully illustrated book, masterfully incorporating his drawings with the text, in style of Johannot. Leloir (1853-1940) was one of the true professionals in the history of French illustration. Books with his designs appeared over five decades. Working by preference with stories laid in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, he was at pains to make his costumes as accurate as possible. It was his celebrity in this field, indeed, which led Douglas Fairbanks to bring him to Hollywood as artistic director of The Iron Mask (1929). His illustrations are abundant, precise, and objective." -Ray, French Illustrated Books.As for A Sentimental Journey, one of his masterpieces, Ray observes that "every episode in Sterne's short text finds its appropriate visual commentary."

        Songs of Innocence; WITH: Songs of Experience

      Edmonton, London: William Muir, 1885. First color reproductions of William Blake's illuminated Songs of Innocence (1789) and Songs of Experience (1794), preceded only by the hand-colored copies printed by Blake himself. Startlingly vivid and direct, these short visionary lyrics include "The Lamb," "Night," "The Chimney Sweeper," "The Clod and the Pebble," "Ah! Sunflower," "London," and "The Tiger": "When the stars threw down their spears, / And watered heaven with their tears, / Did he smile his work to see? / Did He, Who made the lamb, make thee?" Few nineteenth-century readers had any sense of how Blake's poems were originally presented, each text etched within a vividly hand-colored image in the technique Blake called "illuminated printing." In 1884, William Muir set out to produce a series of color reproductions of Blake's illuminated works, beginning with Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience. Working in lithography, he printed fifty copies of each volume, which were then colored by hand in imitation of Blake's originals. For Songs of Innocence, Muir followed the example of the Pearson copy (originally presented by Blake to Flaxman), and for Songs of Experience, the Beckford copy. This set comprises number 49 of Songs of Innocence and number 32 of Songs of Experience, both copies signed and numbered by Muir, and marks an important step in the popular and critical recognition of Blake's originality. Fine bright copies of landmarks in English Romanticism. Two large quarto volumes, measuring 9 by 11 inches, original blue-grey wrappers with white paper spines, manuscript titles, tissue guards, uncut. Prefaces in both volumes; 33 hand-colored lithographs in Songs of Innocence, including colophon; 28 hand-colored lithographs in Songs of Experience; general title to both works in Songs of Experience. Light edgewear to wrappers of both volumes, Songs of Experience disbound. Housed together in custom chemises and half-morocco slipcase.

        Adventures of Huckleberry Finn … by Mark Twain

      New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885. First American edition, first issue. Illustrations by E. W. Kemble. 1 vols. 8vo. Publisher's deluxe half morocco, marbled edges and endsheets. Finely rebacked, preserving original spine, small repairs to spine ends and to last two letters in name panel. Custom morocco slipcase and chemise. First American edition, first issue. Illustrations by E. W. Kemble. 1 vols. 8vo. Earliest Presentation Copy of the Published 'Huck'. Presentation inscription from Clemens to his agent Pond on the front fly leaf: "To Major J.B. Pond, with the affection of Mark Twain Feb. 21/85". Clemens had planned a sequel for 'Tom Sawyer' (1876) almost immediately, yet the book required nearly a decade of great effort before he found his way. 'Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' was intended for simultaneous publication in America and in the British territories in December 1884, but the defacement of the Uncle Silas plate altered the production schedule for the American edition. A dozen pre-publication copies were hastily bound in green cloth in December 1884 to secure copyright, and Clemens presented a copy bound in sheep to his wife at Christmas. Publication day for 'Huck' was 18 February 1885, in a first printing of 30,000 copies: in green or blue cloth ($2.75), sheepskin library binding ($3.25), or in a deluxe half morocco binding with marbled edges ($4.25). Clemens had been on a highly successful reading tour with George Washington Cable, and wrote Webster from Indianapolis (in a letter dated 8 February) "You know I read in Brooklyn Feb. 21 - I shall want to see you at the Everett that day … You can bring a Huck Finn in a nice binding …" In other correspondence leading up to the New York visit, Clemens repeats his request for copies. He was in Saratoga on 20 February before coming to New York City. Webster had to have brought the present copy in the deluxe binding to the Everett Hotel, where the author inscribed it to the impresario for the reading tour, Major James B. Pond. On the leaf opposite, Pond later recalled the circumstances of the inscription when he gave the book to his son in 1897 … "the great Twain-Cable combination under my management …'Mark' showed me the book, & asked me if I wanted it, Yes, said I, I would very much prize the first copy of one of your books …" The book sold well although early critical response was hostile. The book's reputation has grown, and Ernest Hemingway famously declared: "All modern literature comes from one book by Mark Twain." A landmark presentation copy of the greatest American novel of the nineteenth century. BAL 3415; Grolier American 87

        Reports of Explorations and Surveys, To Ascertain the Most Practicable and Economical Route for a Railroad from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean. Made Under the Direction of the Secreatry of War, in 1853-4, According to Acts of Congress of March 3, 1853, May 31, 1854, and August 5, 1854

      A.O.P. Nicholson Printer, Washington, D.C. 1885 - First Edition, in mixed state Senate and House issues of the most massive compilations of exploration reports and scientific data ever published about the Trans-Mississippi West. Published by the Federal Government at the urging of Secretary of War Jefferson Davis, and the result of numerous reconnaissance surveys of exploring four major routes surveyed for the expanding Pacific Railroad. These reports represent the first attempt at a comprehensive, systematic geographical exploration of the Western regions of America, and made possible the first reasonably accurate topographical maps of the West. The plates, maps and tables depict scenery, native inhabitants, fossils, archeology, flora and fauna. Many of the plates include such famous early images as the View of the Los Angeles Pueblo, Fort Vancouver, Washington Territory are still considered some of the best early sources of information on the Pacific Northwest, the Puget Sound, and the tribes of the Washington Territory. Of the eleven official artists, the most prominent is the renowned John M. Stanley (1814-1872) most widely known for his portraits on Native Americans and their way of life. Warren's Map of the Territory of the United States from the Mississippi to the Pacific Ocean (Vol XI) was considered by Howes the best cartographic al work on the west up to its time, and was used for 25 years following as the definitive reference. The collation of this epic survey is complicated and varies, but stated in Wagner- Camp "despite their flaws, these volumes contain a monumental collection of scientific information, geographical, zoological, botanical, geological of the still mysterious American West. Upon first examination, the volumes seem forbiddingly disorganized, however these faults are amply compensated by the richness of material within." Twelve Volumes bound in Thirteen. A spectacular set recently professionally rebound by Richard Smart, of Old English Bindery. Quarto's 11.5 inches in height by 9.75 inches in width, uniformly bound in half black calf over black/blue smooth weave cloth, simply a beautiful and stately presentation, spines with four raised bands with compartments framed in gilt windows, spine titles in gilt as well as volume Roman numerals , War Department stamped in gilt at the heel of each volume. Gilt rule on leather corner edges as well as seam where spine and cloth meet on boards. New paste downs and end papers. Interior is much cleaner than usually found with well struck plates, maps in superior condition, many never unfolded. Some light sporadic foxing, some pages toned as usual, a few ares of water stains on the bottom of some pages in Volume 5 but the reaming volumes are exceptionally free of typical wear. The volumes are ready for years of study and reflection.This set consumes 33 inches of shelf space. A Fine addition to any collection.

        Son altesse la femme.

      Paris: A. Quantin Small folio (27.5 cm; 11" ). [2] ff., [i]–xii, 312 pp., 2 l. illus. (part col.). 1885 Definitely this work was created by a bibliophile for fellow lovers of the book. When this work appeared, Uzanne (1852–1931) was in full stride as a leader of the Paris circle of men and women interested in handsomely illustrated, printed, and bound works of literature. In 1880 he launched Miscellanées bibliographiques and, soon after Son altesse la femme appeared. he introduced the influential periodicals Le Livre, Le Livre moderne, and L'Art et l'Idée. In 1889, he took part in the creation of a publishing company, the "League of Contemporary Bibliophiles." He counted among his friends the artists Jean Lorrain, Barbey d'Aurevilly, and Remy de Gourmont. Son altesse la femme essays most satirically the position of women in society from the medieval to the author's time. The chapters are: Le vray mirouer de sorcellerie, La mie du poete, La précieuse, La caillette, La citoyenne française, Les galanteries du directoire, Sous la restauration, L'amour aux champs, La parisienne moderne, and Mulieriana. The work was limited to 100 copies, all printed on Japan vellum. It has an engraved vignette on the black and red printed title, small illustrations or vignettes on 50 text pages, 11 vignette borders or headpieces (three of them in color, 10 of them in an => extra state), and 10 tipped-in color plates. The illustrations are by Henri Gervex, J.A. Gonzalès, L. Kratké, Albert Lynch, Adrien Moreau, and Félicien Rops. Binding: Full red crushed morocco with five raised bands. Covers with a triple-rule gilt border; spine gilt extra with gilt beading on bands. Triple gilt fillet on board edges. Wide turn-ins richly tooled in gilt and with cream and blue leather inlays that are also gilt-tooled. Blue silk pastedowns and free endpapers. Marbled paper fly-leaves. All edges gilt. => Binding signed "David." Provenance: Red leather bookplate of Cortlandt Field Bishop, the famed collector of the early 20th century and, at one time, owner of the TWO most important auction galleries in NY/USA. => Original full-color wrappers bound in. Uncut copy. Bound as above with original wrappers bound in. Light refurbishment of front joint (outside). => A fabulous copy.

        Handbuch der Petrefaktenkunde und Atlas zm Handbuch der Petrefaktenkunde.

      Tübingen, Laupp, 1885 - VIII, 1239; 100 Tafeln nebst Erklärung Einband berieben, bestoßen. Beim Textband mit längerem Riß am Rücken, beim Atlasband mit teilweisem Rückenabriß. Besitzerstempel auf Vorsatz. Gelegentlich etwas fleckig. Insgesamt recht guter Zustand. "Friedrich August (von) Quenstedt (* 9. Juli 1809 in Eisleben; † 21. Dezember 1889 in Tübingen) war ein deutscher Geologe, Paläontologe, Mineraloge und Kristallograph. Friedrich August Quenstedt war der Sohn eines ehemaligen preußischen Feldwebels, der später Gendarm in Westfalen und zuletzt Lazarettverwalter in Halberstadt war und 1815 an Flecktyphus starb. Seine Mutter war die Tochter eines Försters aus Neinstedt. Nach dem Tod des Vaters wuchs er bei seinem Onkel auf, der ihm den Besuch des Gymnasiums in Eisleben ermöglichte. Er studierte ab 1830 in Berlin bei Christian Samuel Weiss „Geognosie" und Mineralogie und hatte auch Kontakte zu Leopold von Buch. Er hörte auch Vorlesungen bei Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel und pflegte diesen 1831 im Rahmen des studentischen Pflegedienstes am Vorabend seines Todes an der Cholera. Ein Studienfreund war der Astronom Johann Gottfried Galle. 1833 wurde er Kustos bei Weiss und hielt erste Vorlesungen in Berlin. 1835 erfolgte eine erste wissenschaftliche Veröffentlichung und 1836 wurde er mit einer paläontologischen Arbeit über Nautiloide promoviert (De notis nautilearum primariis) und 1837 habilitierte er sich in Berlin. Im Jahre 1837 übernahm er den neu geschaffenen Lehrstuhl für Mineralogie und Geognosis an der Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen. Er begründete damit die noch junge Geologie als eigenständigen Wissenschaftszweig im Königreich Württemberg. Den Lehrstuhl hatte er 52 Jahre inne. Seine Amtszeit ist als Quenstedt-Ära in die Annalen des Geologischen Institutes eingegangen. Seine Forschungsschwerpunkte waren vor allem Fossilien und ihre Nutzung in der Stratigraphie. Durch eigene Aufsammlungen, aber auch durch Ankäufe, baute er in Tübingen eine bedeutende, für Forschung und Lehre geeignete Fossiliensammlung auf. 1842 zählte die Sammlung bereits 30.000 Exponate. Einen großen Anteil dazu trugen auch Öschinger Bauern bei, die für Quenstedt Ammoniten sammelten. 1842 prägte er auch den heute noch international verwendeten Begriff Stufenlandschaft. Grube, in der Quenstedt 1839 den Nusplinger Plattenkalk entdeckte Sein Hauptverdienst ist die intensive Erforschung der Juraformationen der Schwäbischen Alb. Zur geologischen Altersbestimmung verwendete er wie der Engländer William Smith Leitfossilien. Nach ihm benannt ist die Quenstedtsche Gliederung der Feinschichten des Jura, die erst 1973 von einer internationalen Gliederung abgelöst wurde. Aus seiner Feder stammt auch das paläontologische Standardwerk Der Jura, das er 1858 veröffentlichte. Bis kurz vor seinem Tod erstellte er ein umfangreiches Tafelwerk über die Ammoniten der Schwäbischen Alb. Er verstand es, durch einen unterhaltsamen Vorlesungsstil ein breites Publikum für Fossilien zu interessieren. Über Schwaben blickte er jedoch kaum hinaus. Seine Fossiliensammlung ist heute noch im Geologischen Institut der Universität Tübingen einzusehen und kann zum Vergleich eigener Funde herangezogen werden. Er war auch in Nusplingen und entdeckte den Plattenkalk. Ab 1862 war er an der Erstellung der geologischen Landesaufnahme von Württemberg beteiligt und von ihm stammen dazu im Zeitraum 1865 bis 1881 zehn Karten. Einer seiner bedeutenderen Schüler war der Paläontologe Albert Oppel. Sein Enkel Werner Quenstedt[1] (1893–1960) wirkte in den 1930er und 1940er-Jahren als Geologe und Paläontologe an der Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität in Berlin. Quenstedt hegte ausgesprochene Sympathien und Antipathien und ignorierte Personen, die er nicht leiden konnte. Er war ein beliebter Redner auf studentischen Versammlungen, lebte aber streng abstinent. Obwohl ihm der Vaterländische Verein für Naturkunde in Stuttgart zum 50-jährigen Amtsjubiläum als Professor bescheinigte, mit jeder Faser seines Lebens Schwabe geworden zu s [Attributes: Hard Cover]

To Colonel Montgomery, referencing the success of the "Arabian Nights": "[.] To my great astonishment The Nights has hit the public taste: it has of later years been so stuffed with goody-goody, namby-pamby Maria-Matilda that it wants 'strong meat' and by Jove it has got it. We had the pleasure of seeing my good friend Thayer here and I (unhappily) forgot to put his name down for the Athenaeum Club - London without a club is like a park without games. We are both living well under influence of beef and port (wine) and shudder at the lean flesh pots of Trieste (veal) [.]". - Burton published his famous translation of the "Arabian Nights" ("The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night") in a private printing for the Kama Shashtra Society in 1885. The private publication, by subscription only, was necessary to avoid Victorian obscenity strictures. - Reinforcement at fold, a little smudging to signatures. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
