"Seines Lebens eigentlichste Arbeit aber galt den Versteinerungen und der Gliederung der Juraformation, wobei er eine erstaunliche Fülle von Details zu Tage förderte. (...) Durch alle seine Arbeiten zieht sich wie ein rother Faden der Grundgedanke, daß die Species nicht scharf begrenzt ist, daß nicht nur in dem gleichen stratigraphischen Horizonte vielerlei Varietäten sich abzweigen, sondern daß dieselbe Art auch in mehreren Horizonten übereinander fortlebte, aber gleichfalls verschiedene, oft sogar recht weitgehende Variationen erlebte."

        Philips' New Series of Travelling Maps. Victoria with Index (cover title)

      London & Liverpool: George Philip & Son, c., 1885. Slim octavo pocketbook map, map disected and mounted on linen, 655 x 540 mm., printed index; in the original red cloth binding, cover title in black and gilt lettering, some minor wear to spine, a few marks on linen backing, a very good copy. An attractive pocket map from Philips' New Series of Travelling Maps, showing late nineteenth-century Victoria. Philips published a number of maps of Australia which were produced in England, chiefly for emigrants to the gold fields, continuing to produce these significant maps for many years. There are a few clues to the dating of this map, most prominently the marking of the submarine cable from Cape Schank to Low Head, Tasmania, which was completed in May 1869. Also marked are many of the railway routes in the state, including the route of the Great Southern Railway from Sydney to Albury (completed 1881) and the Victorian Railways continuation to Melbourne (1883). It is not immediately clear, however, whether these are simply projections of the planned routes, hence our date can only be considered tentative. The only copy we have been able to compare is held in the National Library of Australia and dated 1864. It is clear that the present version is a later printing, as the railway and submarine cable details, necessarily, are not marked on the Library's copy. Apart from the copy of this map in the NLA, noted above, copies are known to be held in the State Library of New South Wales and the State Library of Victoria. Interestingly, a few similar maps are noted by Ferguson, who noted seven similarly styled Philips maps, six in single copies only. At some point a tentative voyage track from, approximately, Wilson Promontory to King Island has been marked in blue pencil.

      An imperial mounted albumen photograph, 9" x 10.75", taken of the former President and General of the Army with his family shortly before his death on July 23, 1885.

Grant, Jr., and Jesse Root Grant, as well as his daughter Nellie Grant. Seated on the steps are Frederick Dent Grant's wife, Ida Marie Honoré (1854-1930), and their children, Julia Dent Cantacuzène Spiransky-Grant (1876-1975) and Ulysses S. Grant III (1881-1968). Seated just to the left is Ulysses S. Grant, Jr's wife Fannie Josephine Chaffee (1857-1909) and their eldest daughter Miriam Grant (b.1881). Grant spent the final six weeks of his life at Joseph R. Drexel's Adirondack cottage in June and July of 1885, completing his memoirs.

Ohmann, lithographiert von W. Pütz, Halbleinen. (Atlas zu den Abhandlungen zur geologischen Specialkarte von Preussen und den Thüringischen Staaten, Band VI, Heft 3 / Band VI, Heft 4). Aus den Vorbemerkungen: "Die geognostischen Verhältnisse des ostpreussischen, speciell samländischen Tertiärs sind seiner Zeit eingehend von Zaddach dargelegt worden, jedoch fehlte eine Monographie der Fauna bis jetzt. Die Fossilien finden sich in der Bernsteinformation in einer der Bernstein-führenden Lage benachbarten Schicht. Es ist das grosse Verdienst des verstorbenen Professor Zaddach gewesen, eine umfangreiche Sammlung dieser Versteinerungen, welche sich jetzt im Mineralogischen Museum der Universität Königsberg befindet, zusammengebracht zu haben. Die ehrenvolle Aufgabe, eine Bearbeitung dieser Fauna vorzunehmen, wurde mir durch den bisherigen Direktor des Museums, Herrn Professor Dr. M. Bauer (jetzt in Marburg), zu Theil." Einbände minimal berieben, 1 Atlasband unter Verwendung des Originaldeckels nachgebunden, Name auf Einband, wenige Seiten mit kleinem Knick, insgesamt sehr gut erhalten Sprache: deutsch.

        Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade)

      New York, Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885., 1885. First Edition, earliest state of the cloth issue, now finely rebound in full green morocco, with the original cloth covers preserved at rear. Large octavo, pp366. Illustrated throughout. Internally clean save for the occasional thumbmark, portrait is creased with an old (discreet) repair to rear. Binding features raised bands to spine with gilt titles and decoration, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With the following issue points confirming this as one of the initial cloth copies: p.13: the illustration captioned "Him and another Man" is listed, wrongly, as at p.88; p.57: the eleventh line from the bottom reads: "...with the was..."; p.155: with the final five lacking; p.161: lacks the signature mark 11 at the bottom of the page. In addition, the portrait frontispiece has the tablecloth, or scarf, clearly visible. The contentious 'bulging fly' plate (p.283) was only included in publisher's leather copies and is therefore not pertinent to cloth copies. A fine copy of a rare printing. Blanck [3415]. BMC No261, p.90-93.

        On the day of Grantâ??s death, the Grand Army of the Republicâ??s Michigan Departmentâ??s circular order informing their comrades that â??To-day a Nation is mourning the death of one of the greatest Military Chieftains the world ever knew.â?

Lockhead, / Assistant Adjutant General.â? 1 page, 5.25â? x 8.25â?. Slight tears at folds. Fine Condition. Ulysses S. Grant died at 8:09 A.M. in his friend John Drexelâ??s Adirondack cottage, on the slopes of Mount McGregor, where he lived for the six weeks prior to his death. Lockhead beautifully expressed the impact of Grant on all Civil War veterans as, â??As our beloved comrade is laid down to rest, let us cherish his virtues and learn to imitate them. It seems well that we should leave our Comrade to rest, where over him will bend the arching sky, as it did in great love when he pitched his tent, or lay down weary and footsore by the way, or on the battle field, for an hourâ??s sleep. As he was then so he is still in the hands of the Heavenly Father.â? The Grand Army of the Republic was a fraternal organization of Union Civil War ve

        WINNIPEG DAILY TIMES [A bound volume containing all daily issues for the period January 4, 1885, to July 30, 1885]

      Times Printing and Publishing Company 1885 - The Winnipeg Daily News was one of Winnipeg's four local newspapers at the time (the others being the Manitoba Free Press, the Winnipeg Daily Sun, and the Winnipeg Siftings). It was published daily (except Sunday) by the Times Printing and Publishing Company, commencing April 12, 1879 and concluding July 30, 1885. In its final year, the publisher claimed it had the largest circulation of any newspaper in Manitoba. Each issue is complete in itself and measures 51 x 67 cm, the text being printed in eight columns on both sides of the page. The historical significance of this archive can hardly be overestimated, as it contains a day-by-day account of the Northwest Rebellion, nominally led by Louis Riel, and the subsequent capture and trial of the rebel leader. The daily dispatches from Regina, where Riel's trial proceedings commenced on July 20, are detailed and frequently quote verbatim from actual testimony at the trial itself (which concluded July 31), and include most of Riel's frequent outbursts and interjections. They are the best eye-witness account we have of what actually took place at what was arguably the most important trial in Canadian history. The binding holding the newspapers is now broken, but the internal binding is intact. A few issues have large closed tears, else most are in very good condition. Note: copies of this newspaper are not archived in the website newspaperarchive[dot]com. Microfilmed copies are available for reference at the Millenium Library in Winnipeg, at Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, and at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, Texas. The Winnipeg Daily Times is not referenced in Peel's "Bibliography of the Prairie Provinces to 1953" (although the Manitoba Free Press is), nor is it referenced in the major Louis Riel bibliography, published by the Saskatchewan Library Association, nor is it mentioned in "Louis Riel - An Annotated Bibliography", by Dhand, Hunt and Goshawk, even though many - if not most - of the works cited in the Riel bibliographies draw, either directly or indirectly, upon newspaper accounts of the trial. One must wonder if much information and insight about both the Rebellion and Riel's trial could still be mined from such a priceless archive. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Walk in Sydney Streets on the Shady Side. 20 Sketches.

      The Author, Sydney 1885 - Folio, lithographic dedication, title and envoi, and 20 lithographs; some scattered spotting but a good copy in the original publisher's half morocco, expertly rebacked, edges bumped. One of the rarer nineteenth-century illustrated Australian books in a handsome Sydney binding by W.E. Smith. A journalist, Whitelocke was born in London in 1861. It is not clear when he arrived in Australia but he entered journalism in the 1880s and was editor of the Barrier Miner and the National Advocate; he also wrote for the Sydney Mail and other papers. His social sympathies and his often satirically observant eye are obvious from this series of Mayhewesque images of Sydney city life. As Whitelocke himself comments in the advertisement to the work, the idea was prompted by a Sydney Morning Herald review of his 24 original sketches from the works of Charles Dickens (1882): the editors applauded the sketches, but openly wondered why the artist did not stay closer to home, as 'Sydney streets afford more subjects for a book of sketches than any work of Dickens'. Whitelocke acknowledged the value of such a project, and the resulting lithographs show that he was evidently drawn to the everyday bustle of the city, producing a fascinating series of social documents. His concern is with everyday life, whether it is an image of a Chinese vegetable seller, news-boys, orators in the park or street musicians (playing a harp, no less). There is a moralising tone to much of the letterpress, which belies the evident empathy and compassion of the images.

        WINNIPEG DAILY TIMES [A bound volume containing all daily issues for the period January 4, 1885, to July 30, 1885]

      Winnipeg, MB.: Winnipeg Daily Times. 1885. Elephant folio, This is the original newspaper - it is not a reprint or copy - and it contains all the pages as printed for each issue. . One of Winnipeg's four local newspapers at the time (the others being the Manitoba Free Press, the Winnipeg Daily Sun, and the Winnipeg Siftings). It was published daily (except Sunday) by the Times Printing and Publishing Company, commencing April 12, 1879 and concluding July 30, 1885. In its final year, the publisher claimed it had the largest circulation of any newspaper in Manitoba. Note: copies of this newspaper are not archived in the website "newspaperarchivedotcom". Microfilmed copies are available for reference at the Millenium Library in Winnipeg, at Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, and at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, Texas. Microfilmed copies can be ordered from the Canadian Library Association. Each issue is complete in itself and measures 51 x 67 cm, the text being printed in eight columns on both sides of the page. The historical significance of this archive can hardly be overestimated, as it contains a day-by-day account of the the Northwest Rebellion, nominally led by Louis Riel, and the subsequent capture and trial of the rebel leader. The daily dispatches from Regina, where Riel's trial took place, are detailed and frequently quote extensively from actual testimony at the trial, including most of Riel's frequent outbursts and interjections. They are the best eye witness account we have of what actually took place at what was clearly one of the most historic trials in Canadian history. The binding holding the newspapers is now broken, but the internal binding is intact. A few issues have large closed tears, else in very good condition. .

        Collections et collectionneurs, plus volume of manuscript material and correspondence pertaining to this book

      Paris, 1885. <p>The Published Book and the Correspondence Leading to the Book </p><p>Eudel, Paul (1837-1911). (1) Collections et collectionneurs. [6], ii, 300pp. Paris: G. Charpentier et Cie., 1885. 195 x 147 mm. (uncut). Modern quarter morocco, marbled boards; original printed wrappers bound in (mended at gutter margins). Minor fraying at margins, but fine. One of only two copies printed on rose-colored paper, with Eudel&#146;s signed autograph inscription on the title verso: &#147;Il a été tiré sur papier rose deux exemplaires qui n&#146;ont pas été mis dans le commerce. Paul Eudel. No. 2&#148; [There were two copies printed on pink paper that were not for sale. Paul Eudel. No. 2]. (2) Correspondance, Collections et collectionneurs, avant et après (spine title). Bound volume of correspondence containing over 80 manuscript letters and other materials relating to Eudel&#146;s Collections et collectionneurs. 1881-85. 223 x 151 mm. Bound, presumably for Eudel, in full morocco gilt, very slight wear at spine. Together two items. Minor marginal fraying, light toning but fine. </p><p>First Edition of no. (1), one of only two copies printed on rose-colored paper, presumably for Eudel and with his signed limitation inscription on the verso of the title. Paul Eudel, one of the great French connoisseurs, bibliophiles and art critics of the nineteenth century, amassed important collections of antique jewelry, eighteenth-century prints, posters, rare books, bindings and other objets d&#146;art. He also wrote prolifically on the subject of collecting, publishing both books and articles in newspapers such as Le Figaro and Le Temps; his reviews of the auction sales held at Paris&#146;s L&#146;Hôtel Drouot were collected and published in nine volumes between 1882 and 1891. Eudel was the author of a famous exposé of artistic and literary forgeries titled Le truquage (1884), which did much to shape modern opinion on the subject. He was a patron of the arts and a friend of many artists and writers, including Victor Hugo, whom Eudel gave credit for having &#147;convinced the French that antiques had value&#148; (Auslander, p. 185). </p><p>Eudel&#146;s Collections et collectionneurs contains eight articles on collecting and collectors that had previously appeared in periodicals, together with Eudel&#146;s preface written for the book-form edition. Included are articles on stamp collecting, shells, antique toys and puppets, together with profiles of collectors such as Baron Charles Davillier, fencing master and historian Arsène Vigeant, and Aimé Desmottes. We are offering one of two specially printed hors de commerce copies of this work, no doubt commissioned by Eudel, and signed by him. </p><p>Accompanying the work is Eudel&#146;s handsomely bound volume of correspondence relating to the production and reception of Collections et collectionneurs, containing over eighty letters (most with covers bound in) and other materials. Among the letters are seven from Arthur Maury (1844-1907), one of the pioneers of philately and author of the first stamp-collecting catalogues; three from Arsène Vigeant; four from Ad. Giraldon regarding the toy collection of Mme. Agar; two from pottery collector Gustave Gouellain, to whom Eudel dedicated Collections et collectionneurs; and eleven from the printing firm of P. Charaire et fils, who printed the work for publisher G. Charpentier. Also included in the volume is a 21-page manuscript document in French on shell collecting and collectors covering much of the material in Eudel&#146;s piece on the subject. We have not been able to identify the author, but it might have been written by Eudel&#146;s brother Émile, a noted shell collector. Auslander, &#147;The gendering of consumer practices in nineteenth century France,&#148; in Consumption: The History and Regional Development of Consumption, ed. D. Miller (2001), pp. 157-189. </p>

        La Cite Chinoise. Autograph Manuscript and printed book

(1) Manuscrits. [On following leaf:] La cité chinoise . . . Le village abandonné. Pages détachées. Autograph manuscript. 253ff., variously numbered, plus unnumbered cover sheets. 317 x 202 mm. Bound in quarter morocco, mottled boards, gilt-lettered spine, light rubbing. Some edges frayed, minor soiling. Inscribed by Simon on the first leaf: "A ma bien aimée soeur Adeline G. Eug. Simon" and signed by him in a few other places in the manuscript. Printer&#39;s marks and annotations. (2) La cité chinoise. 12mo. [8], 389, [3]pp. Paris: Nouvelle Revue, 1885. 183 x 116 mm. Marbled boards, cloth spine c. 1885, light rubbing. Light browning and foxing. Sheet bound in front with Simon&#39;s autograph presentation inscription: "Monsieur Maret hommage de l&#39;auteur G. Eug. Simon." Pencil notes of former owner on this sheet and several leaves of text.</p><p>(1) The manuscript of Eugène Simon&#39;s La cité chinoise (1885), a pioneering sociological analysis of Chinese culture and traditions that was later praised by one Chinese scholar as "the best book written in any European language on the spirit of the Chinese civilization" (Gu Hongming, Spirit of the Chinese People [1915]; quoted by David Gosset). Simon, an agricultural engineer, traveled to China in the early 1860s and spent four years touring the country and studying its inhabitants and customs. During the latter part of the 1860s he served as France&#39;s consul in China. After his return to France, Simon published La cité chinoise, a work that helped to counter the prevailing mid-nineteenth century European view of China as a stagnant, despotic and morally inferior society. </p><p>Simon&#39;s book idealizes China as a peasant society where liberty in all its forms-political, economic, religious, and intellectual-is realized. Simon&#39;s book, which was very popular, prophesied that all European attempts to subject China to industrialization, colonization, or modernization would fail because of the astounding vitality of the rural nation and its naturalistic civilization. On contemporaries, Simon&#39;s book . . . had an impact out of all proportion to its intrinsic importance. Paul Ernst, the German poet, was inspired by Simon to adulate the collectivist peasant culture of China for giving a higher place to spiritual than to material values ("China in Western Thought and Culture," Dictionary of the History of Ideas, I, p. 371).</p><p>The manuscript volume we are offering contains not only the manuscript of La cité chinoise that Simon sent to the printer, but also an additional, apparently unpublished shorter work entitled "Le village abandonnée," as well as a section titled "Pages détachées," which appears to contain drafts, revisions or deleted pages from La cité chinoise. Some of these pages have portions cut from them; these probably correspond to some of the pasted-in corrections in Simon&#39;s manuscript. Simon presented this manuscript book to his sister, as indicated in his presentation inscription on the first leaf.</p><p>(2) First Edition. Simon&#39;s book went through seven editions between 1885 and 1891. This copy of the first edition bears Simon&#39;s presentation inscription to a M. Maret. Gosset, "The Dragon&#39;s Metamorphosis," Asia Times, Dec 9, 2006 (internet reference). </p>

        Autograph Letter, signed, from Lucy Stone to Mrs. Pitman, regarding the health of her mother

      Dorchester, jan. 6, 1885. Dorchester, jan. 6, 1885. 1p., on a folded quarto sheet. Old fold lines, very good plus . Letter written by Lucy Stone to Mrs. Pitman, regarding her mother&#39;s health and involvement in meetings, possibly suffrage related. Stone was a prominent suffragist, abolitionist, and women&#39;s rights activist. She writes, "I looked all day yesterday for the comfort of your face at no. 5, as I thought your mother might send a message in reply to mine. I am very sorry to hear how poorly she is, and I trust she may be better soon. I did not expect she would pay Mrs. Cloflin, and I thought we might owe her a balance if the collections had not covered the expense, as I understood they had not. It was very good of her to take charge of the meetings. Only think! what might be done if others who are well felt the same spirit to do what they could. With kind love to your Mother and to you. Yours truly Lucy Stone"
