        HEINRICH KIEPERT ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT ALS.

      [s. l.] February 2, . 1885 - [2] folded sheet, ink on paper (Very Good, some minor folds) 14,5 x 11 cm (5.7 x 4.3 inches). A unique manuscript letter by a German geographer Heinrich Kiepert, dated February 2, 1885 includes corrections for a map of Lycia in Anatolia, Turkey, published later that year in Vienna. A handwritten letter by a German geographer and cartographer Heinrich Kiepert, addressed to unknown scientist in Vienna, includes his remarks and annotations to the map of Lycia, which was a result of the Austrian archaeological expedition to the region. Lycia is a geopolitical region in the south-west part of Anatolia, in Antalya in Turkey. The area is known for its numerous ancient cities and burial sites. In 1881-1882 an Austrian expedition of archaeologist and geographers made a new survey of archaeological sites of Lycia. According to the notes the expedition brought with them three Kiepert’s maps, which were by coincidence tossed overboard off coast the island Kekova. The expedition included the architect Georg Niemann, Eugen Petersen, Franz Studniczka, Emanuel Löwy, a photographer Wilhelm Burger, and Kiepert’s friend Felix von Luschan (1854-1924), who is also mentioned in the letter. Upon their return to Vienna, Kiepert was the main cartographer and adviser for presentation of their discoveries on a map. The letter probably accompanied a corrected and annotated map. In the letter Heinrich Kiepert mentions an archaeologist Alexander Christian Leopold Conze (1831 - 1914) sent him a map of Lycia, printed in the technique of zincography, because a sketch, sent to him before was too small. To it he added titles, symbols and corrections. He also decided to use for the title a version of the name Lykia, instead of Lycia and Cilicia. He also writes about different archaeological sites, known or not known before, explains his symbols for rock-cut graves (square), Hittite monuments (star), and border lines between different groups of monuments (broken line). The map with a title Lykia : nach den Ergebnissen der in den Jahren 1881 - 1882 ausgeführten österreichischen Expeditionen on two sheets was published by Gerold in Vienna later in the year 1885. The map is extremely rare on the market. A facsimile oft he map was published in 2005. Heinrich Kiepert: Foremost Authority on the Geography the Ottoman Empire - Heinrich Kiepert (1818 - 1899) was a German geographer and historian of unusual intellect and diversity of interests. Born in Berlin, he grew up in an affluent, culturally sophisticated family, mentored by leading academics and travelling widely. He studied history, geography and philology, with a focus on Greece and the Near East, at the Humboldt University of Berlin under the legendary co-founder of modern geography, Carl Ritter (1779 - 1759). He showed great talent as a cartographer and worked closely with a number of commercial mapmakers. His first major project was assisting Ritter in the production of his Atlas von Hellas und den hellenischen Kolonien (1840). Between 1841 and 1848 Kiepert made four trips to Ottoman Europe and Asia Minor, and become a world-renowned expert on Turkey. This led him to produce his own cartographic works concerning the Ottoman Empire, including the Karte des osmanischen Reiches in Asien (1844); the Karte von Klein-Asien (1854); the Specialkarte vom Westlichen Kleinasien (1890-2) and his posthumously-published, monumental Karte von Kleinasien meist nach noch nicht oder in kleinstem Massstabe veroffentlichten Aufnahmen in 24 Blatt (1902-6). Upon his return from the Near East, Kiepert became the head of the Geographisches Institut in Weimar and, in 1854, was appointed a full professor as the University of Berlin. He maintained a long association with the prominent Berlin map publisher Dietrich Reimer, who was responsible for issuing the present map. Kiepert was a remarkably adept editor of cartographic material, possessing an uncanny ability to select the best and most accurate information out of a variety of conflic

        The Witch's Head

      London Hurst and Blackett 1885 - First edition. Three volumes. 8vo. Publisher's olive green cloth, frayed to spine ends, spines a little discoloured, titled in silver gilt to spine and front board, minor edgewear and scuffing, essentially a very good, set of the author's scarce second novel, of which only 500 copies were printed. Internally clean, dark brown glazed endpapers, inner hinges starting to volumes I and III.

        Reminiscences of Sport in India.

      London, W.H. Allen & Co., 1885. 8vo. Original burgundy cloth (secundary binding), spine ornamented and lettered in gilt, covers ruled in blind; pp. xi, [3], 419; frontispiece, 7 other plates by the author; binding a bit rubbed, a little browned in places and a few minot rears to a few pages. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author to one Dr. Simon, Litchfield Barracks in 1897, on front paste-down. This is a classic 'stiff-upper-lipped' account, written with brisk military brio, while evincing much affection for his native servants - as long as they do not get ideas above their station! His discussion of "Shikar" proceeds thus: 'I use this very well known Oriental word for all kinds of sport, though, as a rule, the use of Indian words in English books is much to be deprecated'. Czech ; cf. Elliott - "Field Sports in India 1800-1947", 1973 (pp. 80 and 216).

The HMS Challenger was the first steam-powered ship to cross the Antarctic Circle as part of its lengthy journey navigating the globe, stopping in Hong Kong, New Guinea, Tahiti, Hawaii, and the Falkland Islands, to mention a few destinations. The photographs include the earliest known photographs of Antarctic icebergs. The collection includes photographs of the native populations encountered along the way. The expedition's scientific findings were published in fifty volumes over the course of the next twenty years. These three volumes therefore supply narratives detailing the discoveries of the expedition and are not part of the "dry" scientific prose that followed in the purely scientific reports issued later.

        MEMOIRS OF NAPOLEON BONAPARTE

      London: Richard Bentley and Son, 1885. This biography of Napoleon by a man who actually knew him has been expertly "grangerized" with portraits and views, and is offered here in a luxurious binding and with distinguished provenance. Bourrienne (1769-1834) was apparently a youthful friend of Napoleon, went to military school with him, and shared a bohemian life with him for a period beginning in 1792. When Napoleon was victorious as the leader of the Army of Italy but bogged down in protracted negotiations with Austria in 1797, Bourrienne was called in for his legal knowledge and diplomatic skills, both of which helped in drafting the treaty of Campo Formio. During the next year, Bourrienne accompanied Napoleon to Egypt as his private secretary, and his account of this period, while not always viewed as reliable, is very vivid. Although he was subsequently employed in service to the government, Bourrienne spent most of the rest of his life out of the public eye, after having disgraced himself by amassing a personal fortune through corrupt means. His chief claim to fame is the present work. The bindings here are fittingly regal, the morocco with an almost mirror-like finish, and the extra illustrations have been added with care and taste. All are protected with tissue guards, and those taken from periodicals printed on less-than-ideal paper have been mounted on heavy stock, thus preventing the browning and offsetting often seen in less impeccably extra-illustrated works. The work was likely done for former owner William H. Bartlett (1850-1918), a wealthy Chicago businessman who bought a 205,000-acre ranch in New Mexico and hired architect Joseph Lyman Silsbee to build a magnificent 25,000 square-foot mansion that included an elegant library.. 222 x 142 mm. (8 7/8 x 5 5/8"). Three volumes extended to nine. HANDSOME EARLY 20TH CENTURY SCARLET CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT (stamp-signed on doublures by the Knickerbocker Press and Putnam's Sons), covers with gilt-rule frame with Napoleonic insignia at corners, raised bands, spines gilt in compartments with an initial "N," a bee, or a crown at center, gilt titling, DARK GREEN MOROCCO DOUBLURES tooled with similar gilt frame, matching moiré silk endleaves, top edges gilt. With woodcuts in the text, 38 plates (as called for), and EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED WITH 524 PLATES, some of these in color. Front flyleaf with engraved bookplate of William H. Bartlett, showing the library of his stately Casa Grande in Vermejo Park, NM. One board with four small black ink spots, but A LOVELY SET IN EXTREMELY FINE CONDITION, the bindings quite lustrous and unworn, and internally, clean, fresh, and bright, as well as refreshingly free of the offsetting that plagues so many extra-illustrated sets.

Booklet, bound Chinese style with folded sheets, 5 single page black and white woodcut illustrations, 7 black and white woodcut illustrations spanning two sheets, 3 pages of Chinese text, 10 1/4 x 6 inches, printed paper wrappers. On the first sheet is written in pencil "No. 55 27th October 1885." Fading and light wear to the wrappers, four tiny wormholes, overall very good condition. A single issue of the Chinese periodical "Dianshizhai Pictorial" which was a Chinese magazine founded by Ernest Major published in Shanghai between 1884 and 1898. "The educated Chinese writers and editors that Major hired to produce the paper proudly announced that the paper's purpose was not only to transmit news, but to allow for the expression of "public opinion" or even, by the eve of the overthrow of the Qing dynasty, to be "the mouth of the citizenry...It was the combination of the written text and the striking visuals, however, that made the Dianshizhai Pictorial so appealing to a broader audience than even its parent Shenbao."

        THE DIVINE COMEDY

      London: Longman, Green, and Co, 1885. This animated binding is unsigned, but is clearly the work of a skilled craftsman and talented designer--perhaps one who studied with one of the great English binders and teachers of the period. The rose leaf tools and heart-shaped leaves are familiar components of the Arts & Crafts style, but the flowers here are daisies and tulip-like buds rather than the Tudor roses more commonly seen. The onlays are myriad (nearly 500 total), and required hours of painstaking work. The text here is a line-for-line translation of the Italian classic, with the terza rima form of the original preserved.. 212 x 135 mm. (8 x 5"). lxxvi, 390 pp., [1] leaf. Translated by James Innes Minchin. ATTRACTIVE CONTEMPORARY BURGUNDY CRUSHED MOROCCO, LAVISHLY GILT IN THE ARTS AND CRAFTS STYLE, covers with ornate floral border of repeating sprays of gilt flowers and leaves, central panel gilt with twining floral vines, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central daisy radiating sprigs of leaves, turn-ins with double gilt rules flanking a row of inlaid green calf circlets, gilt daisies at corners, all edges gilt. A whisper of wear to joints, minor foxing to first and last quires, otherwise a fine copy, clean and bright inside and out, and with almost no signs of use.

        Personal Memoirs of U S Grant in 2 Volumes

      New York:: Charles L. Webster & Company,, 1885, 1886. . First Trade Printing. Two Volumes Complete. A Very Good plus tight set in green cloth bindings stamped in gold on the spine and front covers. 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..

        The Life of the late General F. R. Chesney Colonel Commandant Royal Artillery

      W.H. Allen, London 1885 - London: W. H. Allen & Co., 1885. First edition. 8vo. pp. xxiii, 477, [2], 48 (pubs. cat.); port. frontis., one extending map of the Euphrates; some small marginal tears, else largely unopened in the original cloth, gilt, slightly rubbed. With an accompanying letter from Louisa Chesney pasted to flyleaf, presenting the book to the Turkish ambassador to London Monsieur Musurus, and with a copy of his letter in reply pasted in at rear. Francis Rawdon Chesney (1789-1872) led the 1835 expedition that investigated the navigability of the Euphrates river by crossing from the Bay of Antioch and continuing aboard two steamers, Tigris and Euphrates, to the mouth. The loss of the Tigris during a whirlwind did not diminish Chesney's opinion that the Euphrates was indeed navigable, and could thus form a stage in the overland route to India. The idea was not sanctioned by the British Government, and Chesney continued instead a military career, spending much of the 1840s in China, where he commanded the artillery at the Hong Kong Station. After his death, his widow and daughter used his extensive journals to write up the present life, this copy of which was presented by Chesney’s widow to the Turkish ambassador Kostaki Musurus (who is mentioned in the book).

        ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN

      Charles L. Webster & Co, New York 1885 - Octavo; G+/No jacket; Green spine with gilt; Green cloth boards with pictorial illustration; Wear to the edges and spine; Fraying beginning at corners and along spine and edges; Some toning to pages, especially at edges; Binding sturdy; 366 pages; VW Consignment, Shelved case 2 NOTES: True first edition in green boards, with many of the most important first state points, including on page 13: "him and another man" listed incorrectly as page 88; Page 57, line 11 up: ".with the was."; Frontispiece: cloth under bust visible & "Heliotype" imprint. Other Points: Copyright notice is bound, not tipped in; Page 283 has 'vertical fly' in illustration; Page 155 has last '5' slightly larger than other numbers. While these may indicate a second state, Ahearn notes that "Only pages 13 and 57 are important because the others were put in at random before publication, which seems to us to say that different states don't matter because they all occur before publication."
