        The Birds of Haiti and San Domingo.

      Boston: Estes and Lauriat, . First edition. 1885 - Pp. (2), 7-198; with 22 hand-colored plates and 1 monochrome map, 2 text-figures. Recent one-half straight-grained green morocco leather, spine with five raised bands titled in gilt on black leather and red leather labels in two compartments, over English pale green marbled boards with pale green endpapers (original printed green wrappers bound in at rear), 4to (287 x 225 cm). This volume provides the synonymy, description of plumage, and notes for each species. The hand-colored plates in this copy are particularly bright and clean. This work was issued in four parts dated 1844 (parts 1-3) and 1885 (part 4); the edition was limited to 300 copies only. There is no limitation page in the volume but the front wrapper of each part is labeled with a small red number of 291 (part 1), 245 (part 2), 168 (part 3) and 256 (part 4). Since the highest of these numbers is 291, it seems to confirm an edition of only 300 copies. The wrapper of part 1 has been slightly trimmed with no effect to the text. The title page bears the small name-stamp of ornithologist Ed N. Harrison. There are no other ownership marks of any kind. See also Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 87, Wood, p. 300 and Zimmer, p. 138. The rear side (verso) of some plates show a touch of faint foxing, all of the text and hand-colored plates are very bright and clean, the recent half-morocco binding is very attractive; a tight and clean copy in near fine condition.

        Der Glaube im Neuen Testament. Eine Untersuchung zur neutestamentlichen Theologie. [HANDEXEMPLAR SCHLATTERS]. Eine von der Haager Gesellschaft zur Vertheidigung der christlichen Religion gekrönte Preisschrift.

      Leiden, E.J.Brill, 1885.. Erste Ausgabe. Gross-Oktav. Durchschossenes Exemplar welches speziell für Schlatter in zwei Bände aufgeteilt wurde. Durchgehende Paginierung. Band I: V, 304 Seiten / Band II: Seiten 305 - 591. Privates Halbleder der Zeit. Rücken teilweise angebrochen. Exlibis Schlatters in beiden Bänden ("Er trägt alles durch das Wort seiner Kraft" - Dr.Adolf Schlatter). Das Werk voller umfangreicher Annotation in Schlatter's Hand. Einige wenige Annotationen in Stenographie.. Anlässlich eines Preisausschreibens legte Schlatter 1885 ein ca. 600 Seiten starkes Werk mit dem Titel "Der Glaube im Neuen Testament" vor, das bis in unsere Gegenwart in der theologischen Fachwelt hohes Ansehen genießt. Mit dieser Studie gelang ihm der wissenschaftliche Durchbruch, der 1888 zu seiner Ernennung zum außerordentlichen Professor durch die Universität Bern führte - die mit diesem Schachzug die Abwanderung ihres Kollegen aber nicht mehr verhindern konnte. 1888 folgte Schlatter einem Ruf an die Universität Greifswald auf den Lehrstuhl für Neues Testament. Zum prägenden Element in dieser Zeit wurde seine Freundschaft mit Hermann Cremer und dem dortigen Luthertum, das er als Reformierter zwar schätzen lernte, mit dem er sich später allerdings auch kritisch auseinandersetzte. Beide verstanden sich aufgrund des gemeinsamen Glaubens an Jesus Christus als Schrifttheologen, die sich eine Erneuerung der Theologie von der Vertiefung in die biblischen Schriften (hier besonders in deren Begrifflichkeiten) erhofften. Mit Cremer gemeinsam kämpfte Schlatter um eine wissenschaftliche Alternative zur damals bestimmenden theologischen Schule Albrecht Ritschls. Hier erhielt er sowohl den wissenschaftlichen Austausch im Kollegenkreis als auch die Hörerzahlen, die er sich immer ersehnt hatte. Seine Aufgabe sah er darin, die Studenten anzuleiten, die ängstliche Traditions- und Lehrerbindung hinter sich zu lassen und selbständige Erkenntnis zu pflegen. Dem folgte auch seine "Einleitung in die Bibel" für die Laienhand, in der er nach seiner Ansicht berechtigte Beobachtungen der historisch-kritischen Theologie (z. B. zur Pseudepigraphie) aufnahm und sich dem Ansinnen des "frommen Lügens" zur Sicherung der eigenen Anschauung über die Bibel verweigerte. Eine dreimonatige Reise nach Palästina 1891 vermehrte nicht nur Schlatters Kenntnisse des Heiligen Landes, sondern hatte eine für damalige Zeiten außerordentlich positive Einstellung zum Judentum sowie eine Warnung an die Kirche vor Antisemitismus sowie das Eingeständnis christlicher Schuld zur Folge.

X. 1880). - "Mit dem Alter lernt man erkennen, daß es keine positiven Tugenden und guten Eigenschaften gebe und daß Alles nach persönlichem Eindruck beurtheilt werde. Ob dieser Eindruck ein für mich günstiger - ob meine Erinnerung als Treue oder Zudringlichkeit Ihnen erscheine - das hängt nicht von mir sondern von dem Grade geneigten Wohlwollens oder gleichgiltiger Vergessenheit ab, in welchem ich auf dem Thermometer Ihrer Empfindungen stehe [.]" (Br. v. 16.

        Original playbill for the P.T. Barnum's circus spectacle, featuring Jumbo

      Philadelphia: Merrihew Print, J. Spencer Smith, Chestnut Street, circa 1882, 1885. Original circus playbill measuring 395 x 142 mm, printed on both sides, split at central fold, very good condition. Barnum and Bailey bring Jumbo to Pennsylvania. Scarce and highly ephemeral playbill from the golden age of the Barnum and Bailey circus, featuring woodblocks of P.T. Barnum and Jumbo, as well as the Roman hippodrome races.A collision of different typefaces amidst four woodblocks, the playbill was printed locally to advertise the week of shows commencing 30 April. Jumbo was purchased from the London Zoo in 1882 and Barnum's partnership with fellow showman James Bailey ended in 1885, providing a three-year timeframe for the printing of this playbill (the three owners - Barnum, Bailey and Hutchinson - are clearly indicated).And what a spectacle it must have been, filling the broadmeadow below Dickinson street in Philadelphia. In addition to Jumbo the elephant, the playbill boasts a further another 29 trained elephants and no less than 10 giraffes. In fact, the circus boasted an entire zoological exhibition within its boundaries, here spruiked as "2 Mighty Menageries Containing every notable Wild Beast, Bird and Reptile known to Naturalists".The reverse of the handbill boasts the brilliant street parade, Roman hippodrome races and over 1000 rare and curious freaks. Of special interest is an "ethnological" exhibit including so called Aztecs, the last of the Montezumas, a wild girl, giants and midgets, and the wild man of Borneo. This bill proclaims the exorbitant costs of staging the circus, compared to the relatively modest admission price of 50 cents for adults and children half price.

        Notable South Australians; or, Colonists - Past and Present

      Adelaide: Carey, Page & Co, 1885. Octavo, three original photograph portraits of Sir.W.C.F.Robinson, Capt.S.W.Sweet and George Loyau; lithograph portraits & frontispiece and woodcut illustrated advertisements at the end; purple cloth, faded at the spine. Extra-illustrated with an original photograph of Samuel Sweet. Extra-illustrated with two photographic portraits, and inscribed by the author to the South Australian pastoralist John Howard Angas.Loyau was a journalist and author who arrived in Sydney in 1853, and spent several years in the inland as a jack-of-all-trades, before starting a long career in the newspapers around 1860. He moved to Adelaide in 1877, and his works are now regarded as good sources of local history.Known as a bit of a bibliographical curiosity, this is one of a handful of copies of this work with extra photographs, although none of these extra-illustrated copies seem to have the same suite of portraits. The edition was published with the photograph of the author Loyau, but the present copy also has photographs of Sir William Robinson, Governor of Western Australia, and of the naval officer and photographer Captain Samuel W. Sweet. The copy in the National Library described by Holden has three extra portraits (that of Robinson, but also two more of Whinham and Squarise). All of the photographs depict men whose biographies are included in the book, but it is still not exactly clear what Loyau had in mind when he was preparing these special presentation copies.

        Personal Memoirs of U. S. Grant

      New York: Charles L. Webster & Co., 1885—6. 2 volumes, octavo. Publisher's de luxe brown half morocco, gilt medallic roundels to the boards, spine gilt in compartments, marbled edges and endpapers. Engraved portrait frontispiece, one etched plate and one folding facsimile in each volume, 47 full-page plan, folding map at the rear of Volume II. A few marks to boards otherwise a very good set. First edition. Mark Twain was resounding in his praise of Grant's prose: "this is the simple soldier, who, all untaught of the silken phrase-makers, linked words together with an art surpassing the art of the schools and put into them a something which will still bring to American ears, as long as America shall last, the roll of his vanished drums and the tread of his marching hosts." That Twain was essentially the publisher of the work should not entirely devalue his judgement. Grant's autobiography sold over 300,000 sets and has remained continually in print since its first appearance. Provenance: Lt. Col. Robert K. Scudder (1918-2011) served with distinction in the USAF during WWII and the Berlin Airlift and was highly decorated.

Dark red coloured cloth covered boards with gilt embossed titles and gilt illustration. "It may the worth to say a few words in this place about the intention of the present work. It is not intended to be a treatise on landscape painting, either from a technical and aesthetic side, nor is it by any means exclusively a treatise on landscape in nature. My dominant idea has been the influence of natural landscape upon man, and I may without much presumption suppose myself to be in some degree fitted to write a book on such a theme, because the influence of natural landscape upon myself is always being extremely powerful, and have always been deeply interested in observing how it affects others." -- from preface page IX . Softening and rubbing to the head and to the heel of the backstrip and there is a 0.5" tear to the top backstrip edge. Bumping to the book corners, along with a little fraying.
