        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1885 - 1885 Original Paperback Wisden Very Good Condition!

      1885. Hi, This lot is an 1885 Original Paperback Wisden. It has the Original Spine Paper without any Restoration. It is in Very Good Condition for the year and was in my set for a long time. The spine paper is excellent, just some minimal wear the corners. The book is very tightly bound, the covers are nice and bright and clean, the only downside is an inch crack to the spine paper but the book is still very tightly bound. Internally it is very nice and clean and hasn't been opened for a while. Minimal spotting. Tiny rounding of cover corners with minor thumbing. No restoration and a great Wisden.

        CONSECUTIVE RUN OF THE FIRST THIRTEEN SESSION LAWS OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF THE TERRITORY OF ARIZONA, 1865 - 1885].

      Prescott, Tucson, and San Francisco. 1865-1885. - Thirteen volumes, publication details and pagination provided in the list below. Uniformly bound in 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Minor shelf wear, some labels chipped. ink stamp, embossed blindstamps, but overall good. Arizona had been administered as part of the Territory of New Mexico until its seizure by the Confederacy following the Battle of Mesilla in 1861, though this was a short- lived conquest. A new Territory of Arizona, consisting of the western half of New Mexico Territory, was then declared in Washington, D.C., on February 24, 1863, and these are the published Acts of the first thirteen sessions of the territorial legislature. Arizona would not officially become a state until February 14, 1912. The first volume here is especially important, as it is among the earliest imprints published within the Territory, and it includes the Organic Act providing for temporary government. In his sale catalogue, Streeter writes of the first three volumes included here: "These laws, resolutions, and memorials of the first Legislative assembly of Arizona and those of the second and third Legislative assemblies, also in my collection, are an interesting source of contemporary information on mail routes, printing, railroads, Indian troubles, and for the general history of Arizona." The first volume alone sold for $225 in the Streeter sale. Few copies of the early volumes appear on the current market, with certainly nothing approaching this type of consecutive run. An especially rare set, virtually unobtainable on an individual basis. The works included here are as follows: 1) ACTS, RESOLUTIONS AND MEMORIALS, ADOPTED BY THE FIRST LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF THE TERRITORY OF ARIZONA.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1885 - 1885 Wisden Paperback, Facsimile Spine, Very Good.

      1885. This is a delightful 1885 Original Paperback Wisden, 22nd Edition, with facsimile spine. The covers are super, odd mark but amazing for well over 100 years old, internally it is a very bright book, the odd spot to the odd page but for 1885 it is as white as they come. Spine is of similar colour to the book, the advantage of the facsimile spine is that you can read it without fear of breaking it , plus it is cheaper than an original too.

A fine copy."The favourable reception accorded to my book on 'Old Coaching Days' has emboldened me, in the phraseology of the road, to put on another coach, and ask for it the same kind indulgence and patronage as were bestowed on my previous undertaking Setting out with our old Highways, some of which were partially used by coaches, I have proceeded to show how our roads were improved, and the results of such improvement as regarded speed in travelling; then, giving some account of the use that was made of the roads, and the various persons who managed the traffic on them, I have gone on to 'the change,' when railways superseded the coaching system, and thus brought me into the position of being a chronicler of reminiscences of past things which can no longer be seen in actual existence."

        Neueste Karte von America.... New Chart of America showing the tracks and distances of steam vessels, with the distances to the principal ports of Europe, to the great Lines of Railway and the submarine Cables, constructed for the Use of Geographie [sic.] commercial.... Carte Nouvelle de l'Amerique..

      Stuttgart: Julius Maier, 1885. Tinted lithographic map, with title in German, English and French, with original outline colour, on six folding sheets, backed onto linen, and edged with blue cloth tape, in excellent condition, in modern blue cloth box. A rare and highly detailed monumental wall map of the Western Hemisphere This fascinating map excellently embodies the ethic of empiricist cartography that prevailed in the nineteenth-century. All of North and South America is depicted in great detail with very assured geographical accuracy for the time. A very attractive aesthetic effect is created, with landmasses tinted in a shade of orange, juxtaposed against the seas, which are coloured in a golden brown hue. The various political boundaries of the various states are outlined in bright, resplendent colours. The seas feature a wealth of hydrological information, most notably the great currents that traverse the oceans, notably the Humboldt Current in the Pacific and the Gulf Stream in the North Atlantic. The lines of major shipping routes and the distances between key ports are also noted on the map. The depiction of North America is most interesting, while the American west had by this time been settled in many areas, not all of its territories had yet been admitted into the Union as states. The Canadian Prairies are captured just before the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railroad, and the great wave of settlement that would result. The depiction of the Arctic is fascinating, as while the southern part of the Arctic Archepelago is charted, the most northerly regions, such as Ellesmere Island, are absent from the map, totally unknown to explorers. Alaska, which was purchased by the U.S. from Russia in 1867 is shown to be a complete wilderness. The islands of the Caribbean are shown to be almost entirely under the colonial hegemony of the various European powers, and the nations of South America exhibit very different borders than the ones which we are familiar with today. Colombia still owned Panama, and straight, arbitrary lines mark the international boundaries in the heart of the continent - the still mysterious Amazon Basin. Bolivia is shown to own a piece of the Pacific Coast by the Atacama Desert, and Peru's borders extend further south than they do today. The map shows these countries as they appeared before the Pacific War (1881-3), during which Chile roundly defeated its northern neighbours, and seized three littoral provinces. The map features six very interesting cartographic insets. In each of the top corners are insets of the polar regions showing both of these extremities of the globe to be somewhat enigmatic. Towards the lower left of the map is a detailed inset featuring the most populated region of the United States, the Washington-Boston corridor. Another inset depicts the elevation of the topography of North America, while towards the lower right of the map, another inset similarly details South America. A most curious aspect is featured in the final inset, an 'ethnographic map' of the Americas, which shows which parts of the hemisphere are inhabited by a majority of people of indigenous versus European ancestry.

        Mangifera Indica [Mango Tree]

      Brussels: C. Muquardt, 1885. Chromolithograph, by P.Depannemaeker. Very good condition apart from some minor soiling and a few light foxing marks. A fine example of the spectacular botanical work by Berthe Hoola Van Nooten, from 'Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java'. Indigenous to southern Asia, the Mango tree, of which there are numerous varieties, belongs to the order of Anacardiaceae . It's sweet, fleshy fruit is among the most popular and well-known of all tropical fruits. In her early twenties, Hoola Van Nooten had accompanied her husband to Jakarta (Batavia), capital of Java, where he died. She was left with debts to pay and a family to support. With great ingenuity, she managed to get a selection of her paintings chromolithographed and published under the title Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java Peints D'Après Nature , the first edition of which appeared in 1863-4. "Van Nooten was clearly more than competent, for the splendid tropical plants… have been depicted with great skill. She managed to accentuate the splendour of each species by adopting a style that combined great precision and clarity with a touch of neo-Baroque exuberance, revelling in the rich forms and colours of the tropics." (L. Tongiorgi Tomasi An Oak Spring Flora p.330) Cf. Nissen BBI 931; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 3025; cf. L. Tongiorgi Tomasi An Oak Spring Flora 87.

        Xanthochymus Dulcis [Gamboge]

      Brussels: C. Muquardt, 1885. Chromolithograph, by P.Depannemaeker. Very good condition apart from a few light foxing marks. A fine example of the spectacular botanical work by Berthe Hoola Van Nooten, from 'Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java'. A medium-sized tree from Southeast Asia, the Xanthochymus Dulcis yields three different types of fleshy bright orange fruit. This elegant print depicts the sweet, edible Manies variety, which is frequently grown by the natives of Java. Still in her early twenties, Berthe Hoola Van Nooten had accompanied her husband to Jakarta (Batavia), capital of Java, where he died. She was left with debts to pay and a family to support. With great ingenuity, she managed to get a selection of her paintings chromolithographed and published under the title Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java Peints D'Après Nature , the first edition of which appeared in 1863-4.

        Averrhoa Bilimbi [Bilimbi or Cucumber Tree]

      Brussels: C. Muquardt, 1885. Chromolithograph, by P.Depannemaeker. Very good condition apart from a few light foxing marks. A fine example of the spectacular botanical work by Berthe Hoola Van Nooten, from 'Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java'. Also described by some as the Apple tree of India, the Bilimbi is one of the chief species of the Oxalideae order. It originated from Indonesia, most likely in the Moluccas, and is commonly found in Burma, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and India. Its acidic fruit is frequently used for stain removal and as a main ingredient in pickle relish and chutney. Still in her early twenties, Berthe Hoola Van Nooten had accompanied her husband to Jakarta (Batavia), capital of Java, where he soon died. She was left with debts to pay and a family to support. With great ingenuity, she managed to get a selection of her paintings chromolithographed and published under the title Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java Peints D'Après Nature , the first edition of which appeared in 1863-4.

        Zalacca Edulis [Salak Palm]

      Brussels: C. Muquardt, 1885. Chromolithograph, by P.Depannemaeker. Very good condition apart from some very minor foxing and a small orange spot in the lower right corner of the sheet. A fine example of the spectacular botanical work by Berthe Hoola Van Nooten, from 'Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java'. Similar to the sago tree, the Salak Palm is native to Indonesia, and its edible spherical fruit is covered by a prickly, lizard-like epidermis. It belongs to the order of Palmaceae , which, as Hoola Van Nooten remarks, was regarded by the renowned English botanist John Lindley as "the most interesting of the vegetable kingdom; as well as on account of the majestic aspect of their towering stems, crowned with foliage still more gigantic, as from the character of their grandeur which they impress upon the landscape of the countries they inhabit; their immense value to mankind as affording nourishment, clothing and numerous objects of economical importance, and the prodigious development of their reproductive organs." Hoola Van Nooten had accompanied her husband to Jakarta (Batavia), capital of Java, where he died. She was left with debts to pay and a family to support. With great ingenuity, she managed to get a selection of her paintings chromolithographed and published under the title Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java Peints D'Après Nature , the first edition of which appeared in 1863-4.

        Das Elend der Philosophie. Antwort auf Proudhons „Philosophie des Elends“ von Karl Marx. Deutsch von E. Bernstein und K. Kautsky. Mit Vorwort und Noten von Friedrich Engels

      Stuttgart, Druck und Verlag von J.H.W. Dietz 1885 - . Ein Band in 8vo; XXXVI, (4), 209, (1) Seiten; braunes Halbleinen der Zeit über marmorierten Deckeln, Ecken verstärkt, gering berieben, goldgeprägter Rückentitel, marmorierter Schnitt, von den Rändern her leicht gebräunt (age-toned), sonst sauber, ein sehr gutes Exemplar. Seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe. Die vorliegende Schrift entstand im Winter 1846/47, zu einer Zeit wo Marx über die Grundzüge seiner neuen historischen und ökonomischen Anschauungsweise mit sich ins Reine gekommen war. Proudhon’s eben erschienenes „Système des contradictions économiques ou philosophie de la misère“ gab ihm die Gelegenheit, diese Grundzüge zu entwickeln im Gegensatz zu den Ansichten des Mannes, der von nun an unter den lebenden französischen Sozialisten die bedeutendste Stelle einnehmen sollte. Seit der Zeit, wo die beiden in Paris oft ganze Nächte lang ökonomische Fragen diskutirt, waren ihre Wege mehr und mehr auseinander gegangen; Proudhon’s Schrift bewies, dass jetzt schon eine unüberbrückbare Kluft zwischen beiden lag; Ignoriren war damals nicht möglich; und so konstatirte Marx den unheilbaren Riss in dieser seiner Antwort (aus dem Vorwort von Fr. Engels, Seite V). Catalogue Sraffa 3866, Braeuer S. 166, Sauer 5/1968: 2337 (2.Ausgabe), Menger Sp. 250 (spätere Ausgabe), Philosophen-Lexikon II, S. 128 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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

      Charles L. Webster and Company 1885 - Publisher's original ¾ leather, with marbled boards, page edges, pastedowns, and endpapers; one of just 500 copies printed (Raptis Rare Books, internet article, March 2014). //LAID in is a hand written response, declining an invitation, on a folded Quarry Farm labeled note, dated "Sept. 17/03", and SIGNED, "S. L. Clemens". (Quarry Farm was the home of Susan Langdon Crane, sister of Mark Twain's wife Olivia, and often the summer residence of the Twains. Mark Twain wrote, at least in part, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn while at Quarry Farm). The note sheet was created with a fold to yield 4 writing surfaces although this message is confined solely to the letterhead panel; The note was then manually folded, horizontally. It was written 5 weeks prior to the Twain family leaving for Italy and was penned during the last summer they spent together at Quarry Farm, as Olivia died in Italy the following June. //CONDITION OF THE NOTE: Very good-near fine, with a touch of toning, faint soiling, two miniscule specks on the letterhead panel, the faint horizontal crease, and light peeling on the rear panel where it had been affixed to some other surface. //CONDITION OF THE BOOK: The spine and corners have been professionally restored (corners still showing the bumped tips) and the marbled surfaces have some scratches and nicks. Interior condition problems: 1.) The pastedown/endpaper hinges have been reinforced, 2.) the front endpaper has a 1/8"x1/4" upper corner chip, 3.) there is scattered light foxing on the front and rear the preliminary pages, 4.) leaves 3-18 have areas of (food?) staining heaviest on page 17 with bleeding back to the copyright page and finally vanishing on page 36, 5.) the bottom corner of page 23-24 has a 1/2"x7/8" chip. 6.) the rest of the text has occasional soiling, some perimeter stains, a few tipped corners, one dog-eared page, and most pages have light perimeter toning. //ISSUE POINTS: The tissue guarded front plate is second state with no cloth visible under the bust. The title/copyright leaf is integral (lack of uniform opinion on this point), "Him and another man" is incorrectly listed at page 88 (instead of page 87 where it appears), page 57 has "with the was" on line 11 from the bottom, page 143 is missing the "l" in "Col." (which is part of the illustration at the top line of the text) and has the broken "b"in "body" on line 7, the final 5 of page 155 is lacking (again, lacks consensus), the illustration on page 283 is bound in with the noticeable curve on the fly of Silas Phelp's trousers and the final leaf is blank. //OVERALL: in spite of the aforementioned flaws, this is a very good and quite scarce 130 year old volume as several of these leather bound copies are in university and library collections, while others have surely been destroyed or lost, leaving precious few for private collections.

        TROISIEME CONFERENCE INTERNATIONALE Des SOCIETES De LA CROIX-ROUGE Tenue a Geneve du 1er Au 6 Septembre 1884. Compte Rendu

      Au Siège Comité International de la Croix-Rouge, Genève 1885 - xix, [1 (blank)], 444 pp. Text in French. 4to. Scarce Red-Cross volume, of which OCLC records 5 institutional holdings [none in the US], inscribed to Dr Joseph Gardner, a prominent Indiana citizen and early friend/benefactor of Clara Barton, as well as patron of the recently-formed American Red Cross [founded in 1881, and of which Barton was president when this volume was inscribed]. Barton had a long-standing friendship with the Gardners, with her one-time sectetary Enola Lee, becoming the 3rd Mrs. Joseph Gardner.In 1893, Dr. Gardner donated a large plot of his land in Indiana to the American Red Cross, which Barton envisioned becoming a central-states headquarters/warehouse for the organization. All was to come to naught however, as the plot was never developed & ulitmately sold to settle back taxes, et al. Such was to later cause Barton problems, however, as she was accused of financial malfeasance, which ultimately contributed to her 1904 retirement from the Red Cross. Cf. Cavinder, MORE AMAZING TALES OF INDIANA, pp. 79 - 80. Early inscribed Barton material is somewhat uncommon in the trade.

        CHISHOLM BROTHERS SOUVENIR ALBUM "COWBOY LIFE

      Chisholm Bros., n. d. (ca 1885)]., 1885. First edition. Publisher's embossed binding, with a gilt title and vignette illustrations of a cowboy on horseback on the front cover. 5"x 6" with a foldout in accordion fashion with 22 illustrations on 12 pages. The sepia lithographed illustrations are realistic, and drawn from photographs, including depictions of "The Mess Wagon," "Branding on the Prairie," "Roping a Pony From the Herd," "Throwing a Steer," "Skinning a Beef," "Branding a Maverick," and more. The first pictorial book devoted to the life of the cowboy on the range. Possibly including a rare image of Billy the Kid which also appeared in Chittenden's Ranch Verses. Dykes, Billy the Kid 28: "rare." According to Dykes, Chittenden's Windy Billy may be a pseudonym for Billy the Kid and the photograph reproduced here strongly resembles the only known image of Billy the Kid. Covers rubbed with views being fine.

        Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

      Charles L. Webster and Company, New York 1885 - First edition. Octavo, original publisher's decorated green cloth gilt to the spine and front panel. A near fine example with just a touch of rubbing. Laid in is an original pen and ink drawing by E.W. Kemble laid in, titled in pencil in another hand, "The Pirate Chief carries off Sweet Marie," pin-holes, light wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. With "88" on p 13 and "with the was" on p 57. As to issue points resulting from damaged plates (e.g. the dropped "5" on p 155, present here), Kevin MacDonnell concludes, "they are of no significance in determining the sequence of the printing of the sheets. All of these occur at random in relation to each other within copies of the first printing, a strong indicator of the use of multiple plates, and possibly mixed sheets within the collating process" ("Huck Finn among the Issue-Mongers," Firsts, Vol 8, No 9, Sept 1998, pp 28-35). A very sharp example of this literary highspot. 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." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
