      1885-1906, Paris 1885 - 194 livraisons in-4 puis in-folio, reliées en 2 vol. in-4 et in-folio, demi-toile rouge et demi-chagrin rouge de l'époque. Collection complète. Une des pubications illustrées les plus importantes de cette fin de siècle. Journal illustré dirigé par le chanteur et poète Aristide Bruant, dont les bureaux se trouvaient au cabaret du même nom, au pied de la butte Montmartre. Publié sur quatre pages in-4 puis in-folio, le premier numéro parut le premier octobre 1885. La fréquence de sa publication fut plusieurs fois modifiée : d'abord bi-mensuel, il devint hebdomadaire du 3 avril au 15 mai 1886, puis redevint bi-mensuel jusqu'en avril 1887. Chaque numéro comporte un poème ou une chanson d'Aristide Bruant, une chanson ancienne, des textes d'Alphonse Allais, Jules Jouy, Paul Arène, Camille de Sainte-Croix, Charles Leroy et de fréquentes collaborations de Courteline. La plupart des histoires, contes ou nouvelles, ont trait à la vie du « milieu » de tendance réaliste, mettant souvent en scène des femmes de moeurs légères et rédigés dans une langue plutôt verte. Les premières livraisons sont illustrées par Steinlein sous le pseudonyme de Jean Caillou, mais aussi Toulouse-Lautrec qui signe Treclo, puis Uzès, Ibels, Heidbrink, etc. Très bon exemplaire.

        TWO STORIES OF THE SEEN AND UNSEEN: THE OPEN DOOR; OLD LADY MARY

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1885.. Octavo, pp. [1-4] [1-3] 4-212, original decorated blue-gray cloth, front panel stamped in brown and gray, spine panel stamped in brown, black coated endpapers. First edition. Collects "The Open Door" and "Old Lady Mary," two fine ghostly tales. "The Open Door," was praised by M. R. James who considered it to be one of the "really good ghost stories I know wherein the elements of beauty and pity dominate terror." "Much stronger than the Little Pilgrim stories, these melancholy tales of unease offer a subtle sense of desolation which stands at one extreme of the Victorian ghost story spectrum, the other being occupied by shocking accounts of supernatural vengeance." - Barron (ed), Horror Literature 2-75. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 141. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1256. Bleiler (ed), Supernatural Fiction Writers: Fantasy and Horror, pp. 266-67.

        The Chersonese with the Gilding Off.

      London: Richard Bentley and Son, 1885 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original green diagonal-grain cloth, gilt lettered spine with gilt stamp of sheath for a kris, front covers with large gilt and black stamp of a hand holding a kris, pale grey floral endpapers. .Spines toned and a little rolled, a few old stains to covers, inner joints neatly refurbished yet still a good set, complete with the errata slip in volume I. Bookplates of John William Darwood (the Darwood family were prominent in Burma during the 19th century, primarily involved in the teak and shipping industries and the development of the Rangoon Electric Tramway and Supply Company). Wood-engraved portrait frontispieces. First edition of this important work on the Malay states; rather uncommon. Emily Innes (née Robertson, 1843–1927) married the colonial officer James Innes in 1875 and shortly after they travelled out to Sarawak, where he was government treasurer. "He was a slack, incompetent administrator who drank too much. But until his death in 1901 Emily was a dutiful and loyal wife and a ferocious champion of her husband "In 1876 Innes lost his job in Sarawak but secured a district officer's post at Kuala Langat [Malaya], the royal capital of Selangor, which had recently come under British control. For six years the couple lived in Selangor with a brief interval in neighbouring Perak. For Emily it was a period of uncomfortable living in remote places, a time of loneliness and tedium, interrupted occasionally by a crisis. She studied the Malay language in books and practised it with her visitors. She dispensed what medicines she had, noting that few of her patients died, and she helped to tackle a local outbreak of cholera. To recover her health she visited the district officer and his family on Pangkor island. Chinese robbers broke into the house, killed the husband, and left his wife and Emily Innes unconscious. The arrival of the two women at Penang, bearing the marks of the attack, caused 'a considerable sensation' "In the course of her brief visit to the Malay states in 1879 Isabella Bird, the celebrated traveller, did not come to the station at which James and Emily Innes then lived. When Bird's book The Golden Chersonese appeared in 1883 Emily, back in London, conceded that everything in it was 'perfectly and literally true'. But her The Chersonese with the Gilding Off (1885) recorded what Bird had hardly seen and so not mentioned. "The book is the basis of her fame. Much of it is a detailed account of her experiences and hardships, written with a bitterness that, according to an American historian, bore 'the marks of paranoia'. When published it attracted little attention. Bird, preoccupied with personal problems, did not respond. However, modern historians, in search of contemporary evidence of early colonial rule, have recognized its value as a vivid and perceptive picture of the Selangor Malay élite then coming to terms with colonialism, and the book was republished in 1974 with an introduction by a leading Malayan historian. "Although she writes unsympathetically Emily Innes gives a good description of the Malay lifestyle and of the individuals she knew. There are lighter touches, as when she tells of her unlikely friendship with an elderly Malay aristocrat, formerly a pirate. Invited to tea and tennis, he scampered about hitting the ball high in the air with much satisfaction. He declined tea but was refreshed with Bass's pale ale in homeopathic doses [Emily Innes] was an intolerant and quarrelsome snob, but her gifts of observation and description made a valuable contribution to Malayan historiography. Her courage and determination in face of adversity also deserve respect" (ODNB). Speake, The Literature of Travel and Exploration, II p. 756. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Reading from Homer - Sir Lawrence (Lourens) Alma-Tadema, ca. 1885.

      ?Reading from Homer?, heliogravure vervaardigd rond 1885 door de Berlin Photographic Co. naar het schilderij (Opus CCLXVII) van Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 41,5 x 83 cm. In originele lijst.We zien een rapsode met een papyrusrol, hij draagt de epische gedichten van Homerus voor aan een toegewijd publiek. Ze zijn bijeengekomen in een klein amfitheater dat uitkijkt over een turquoise Ege?sche Zee.De zetel van de lezer is ontleend aan het theater van Dionysus in Athene. De gevarieerdheid van kostuums zijn een afspiegeling van de algemene aantrekkingskracht van Homerus? po?zie; de elegant geklede figuur, half afgesneden aan de linker kant, contrasteert sterk met de liggende figuur in eenvoudige geitenvellen. Een criticus klaagde dat de gezichtstypen ?van een lage orde? waren en niet pasten bij de waardigheid van het onderwerp. Alma-Tadema sympathiseerde echter met de negentiende-eeuwse visie van Homerus als populair, in plaats van elitair dichter. Alma-Tadema wenste wellicht ook dat zijn eigen ?epos? een breed publiek bereikte, en inderdaad werd Reading from Homer wijd verspreid in de vorm van losse gravures en andere reproducties. Zijn schilderijen waren door ook toen al hoge prijzen, slechts te koop voor een rijke minderheid.Prijs: ?3.150,- (incl. lijst).

        AFTER LONDON; OR, WILD ENGLAND ...

      London, Paris, New York & Melbourne: Cassell & Company, Limited,. 1885. original taupe bevel-edged cloth, front panel stamped in black, spine panel stamped in gold, rear panel stamped in blind, top edge untrimmed, other edges rough-trimmed, white endpapers with floral pattern printed in brown.. Cloth lightly worn at spine ends, some rubbing at corner tips, and. along outer joints, a bit of soiling to cloth, small stain to rear. cover, inner rear hinge partially cracked but still holding tight, a. sound, about very good copy. (#151640). First edition. According to Miller and Matthews, only about 1000 copies were printed, and some were for the American market. This copy has an inserted publisher's catalogue dated May 1885 (the earliest catalogue is dated March 1885). This unjustly neglected novel by a popular late nineteenth century English naturalist combines Jefferies' remarkable power of observation and his application of these observations into a philosophy based loosely on the Darwinian theory of evolution. Brian Aldiss (in Trillion Year Spree) observed that AFTER LONDON gave "memorable expression" to "the theme of nature reasserting its dominance. "AFTER LONDON stands with the works of Hudson and William Morris in rejecting modern, scientific times long before any disillusionment caused by the First World War set in." - Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s- 1930s 450. "AFTER LONDON is a first-class example of Victorian sf and proved very popular at the time; its influence can be traced through W. H. Hudson's A CRYSTAL AGE (1887) to John Collier's TOM'S A-COLD (1933) ..." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 642. "Unequal, but still a minor masterpiece." - Suvin, Victorian Science Fiction in the UK, p. 27. "... a remarkable book that deserves reading." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1184. Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 1- 108; (1987) 1-53; (1995) 1-53; and (2004) II-567. Bailey, Pilgrims Through Space and Time, pp. 76- 77. Clarke, Tale of the Future (1978), p. 11.

        Das Kapital.

      Hamburg: Otto Meissner,, 1885. Kritik der politischen Oekonomie. Zweiter Band. Buch II: Der Cirkulationsprocess des Kapitals. Herausgeben von Friedrich Engels. Octavo (207 x 136 mm). Near-contemporary black quarter calf, marbled paper boards, spines ruled in blind. Bound with the first state and the cancelled state of pp. 515-6, with the former spelling "Konsumtionsfonds" with a C and with the latter with a printer's error obscuring some text, and bound without the terminal imprint leaf. With a Russian illustrated stamp celebrating the centenary of Das Kapital's publication laid-in. Extremities worn and boards scuffed, hinges cracked but holding, endpapers lightly marked. Without the terminal imprint leaf. Paper repair to title page verso, small tear to upper edge of sig. 14.4, worm-damage to upper margins of gathering 33 and rear free endpaper, not affecting text, overall a very good copy. First edition of the second volume of Das Kapital, edited from Marx's manuscripts by Friedrich Engels. "Marx himself modestly described Das Kapital as a continuation of his Zur Kritik de politischen Oekonomie, 1859. It was in fact the summation of his quarter of a century's economic studies, mostly in the Reading Room of the British Museum. The Athenaeum reviewer of the first English translation (1887) later wrote: 'Under the guise of a critical analysis of capital, Karl Marx's work is principally a polemic against capitalists and the capitalist mode of production, and it is this polemical tone which is its chief charm'. The historical-polemical passages, with their formidable documentation from British official sources, have remained memorable; and, as Marx (a chronic furunculosis victim) wrote to Engels while the volume was still in the press, 'I hope the bourgeoisie will remember my carbuncles all the rest of their lives' …" (PMM). "The history of the twentieth century is Marx's legacy. Stalin, Mao, Che, Castro—the icons and monsters of the modern age have all presented themselves as his heirs. Whether he would recognise them as such is quite another matter … Nevertheless, within one hundred years of his death half the world's population was ruled by governments that professed Marxism to be their guiding faith. His ideas have transformed the study of economics, history, geography, sociology and literature. Not since Jesus Christ has an obscure pauper inspired such global devotion—or been so calamitously misinterpreted." (Francis Wheen, in his introduction to Karl Marx, 1999).

        Pl. 120 Ukiuki

       An extremely detailed hand-colored lithograph of a native Hawaiian flower by Mrs. Francis SInclair, published in London by Sampson Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington in 1885. Overall this print measures 10.4X14.5". This print is of superior quality, and in good condition with bright crisp paper and radiant coloring. Some foxing, staining and creasing in margins.Isabella McHutcheson moved to Hawaii after her marriage in 1863 to her cousin Francis Sinclair. Their family were the first European settlers to live on the island of Ni`ihau. Isabella was the niece of Elizabeth McHutcheson Sinclair who had famously bought the island of Niihau from King Kamehameha IV for $10,000 in gold in 1864. Isabella was born in Stirling, Scotland in 1840 and from a very young age she showed a real artistic proclivity. Part of her childhood was spent in New Zealand where she first acquired an interest in botany as well. During the years that her husband Frank ran the family ranch, Isabella Sinclair occupied her time collecting botanical specimens, painting watercolor sketches of the plants, and preparing a collection that eventually became a book: "Indigenous Flowers of the Hawaiian Islands." She took a specific interest in the plant life of the Waimea and Olokele regions which she compared to the New Zealand species she was familiar with. She painted a series of watercolors and identified each specimen with its botanical name (provided by Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker), natural habitat setting, Native Hawaiian name and blossoming period. This book was the first in existence to feature color plates of Hawaiian flowers and plants. With 44 color plates in all the book was an exquisite cross section of  Native plants.

        [Poster] Kathryn Kidder as Wanda in "Nordeck."

      Buffalo: The Courier Lith. Co., 1885. First edition. A very good copy, restored at top edge, text banner affixed to bottom (Condition B+).. Three portraits of the young Belle Époque actress Kathryn Kidder, flanked by four full length photographs of her in costume, taken by Napoleon Sarony, the greatest photographer of the American theater. Frank Mayo and John G. Wilson's play, based on "Vineta, the Phantom City" a translation of a novel by E. Werner, opened in 1884 in Chicago with Laura Don as Wanda, but when Don left for California, Kidder was given the role as the play moved to New York and Mayo went all out to promote her. Kathryn Kidder (1867-1839) was born In Newark or Evanston, Ill (various reports) and was privately educated until she attended the North Western Female College (where Emma Willard received her degree). Her early rise was described in 1885 at the time of this poster: "Frank Mayo meantime had heard of this promising pupil, and at once hunted her up, with a view to offering her the character of the Countess Wanda in his play of 'Nordeck.' After a careful study of the character and its possibilities, she accepted Mr. Mayo's offer, and spoke of the character to a friend in these words: 'It is a part I would have chosen if I had been consulted, and given my choice; and, whatever the future may bring, much shall be ascribed to the very fortunate opportunity afforded me in the character of the lovely Countess Wanda.' This character in 'Nordeck' is indeed lovely, as Miss Kidder says. The author has suggested a character that is quite ideal, and the young actress has clothed it with life and naturalness while portraying the romantic possibilities of the creation with all the enthusiasm of a young girl in the first flower of fulfillment. And it is not too much to say that the character of Wanda is due largely to Miss Kidder's efforts, whether unaided or otherwise; for her lines allow rather than demand the character that she portrays. Miss Kidder is tall, with a bright rather than simply beautiful face, a figure that is willowy and lithe, and motions that are at one and the same time impetuous and graceful. She realizes and feels as well as looks the young and impulsive character..." (Folio, Boston, vol. xxvii, June 1885, pp. 222-3). Afterwards she followed this with several Shakespeare seasons, playing Ophelia, Desdemona, Hermione and Perdita, Lady Macbeth, then Madame Sans-Gene; further Shakespeare revivals and old English comedy; School for Scandal, The Rivals, The Country Girl, then Salambo of Flaubert, and following this several modern plays, including The Embarrassment of Riches (Wallack's); The Woman of Impulse (Herald Square); and The Glass House." She had her own production company, wrote 'The Heart of her husband a domestic drama in three acts and two scenes', helped fund-raise for Women's Suffrage, and was married to Louis Kaufman Anspacher, an American playwright and director. Rare. OCLC and other databases show no copies of this nor any other posters for Nordeck nor for Kidder. The Library of Congress has an archive of her scrapbooks of news clippings relating to her stage career 1883-1909 and the NYPL has a promptbook of her play.

        MAP OF ABILENE....PUBLISHED BY LOUIS C. WISE & Co....GENERAL AGENTS FOR LANDS IN NORTHWEST TEXAS. CONTROL OVER 500 LOTS IN ALL PARTS OF ABILENE. CHOICE LANDS NEAR TOWN

      Abilene, Tx.: Louis C. Wise & Co. (but lithographed by Clarke and Courts, Galveston), 1885. Lithographed map, 27 x 24 inches. Minor edge wear, some soft creases. Very good. A rare map of Abilene, Texas, quite likely the earliest large map of the city. Abilene, some 180 miles west of Dallas, was established in 1881 by cattlemen as a stock shipping point on the Texas & Pacific Railroad, and it was promoted as the future great city of west Texas. By 1883 it became the seat of Taylor County, replacing Buffalo Gap, which had been passed over by the railroad. This map, which is undated but likely produced circa 1885, shows the rapid growth of the city. The map was drawn by A.H. Kirby and compiled by Kirby and County Surveyor J.A. Thomas. It is highly detailed, showing hundreds of lots available in the city from Louis C. Wise & Company (successor to Holt & Wise), the largest land agent in Abilene. A table provides the names of several land owners, with numbers corresponding to lots and blocks on the map. The map also gives street names, the route of the Texas & Pacific Railroad, the location of the stock pens near the train depot, and the paths of three creeks. Louis Wise was one of the earliest residents of Abilene. He graduated from the Virginia Military Institute in 1864 and following the Civil War went to Mexico as an engineer on the survey of the Vera Cruz and Mexico Railroad. Wise came to Texas in 1866, was employed as a draftsman in the state land office in Austin, and settled in Abilene when the town was founded. This map was printed by the Galveston lithographic firm of Clarke & Courts, which brought the first lithographic press to Texas in 1877. OCLC locates five copies, at Yale (two copies), Southern Methodist University, the Library of Congress, and the University of Texas at Arlington. OCLC 78372731, 81463312.

        Vue générale de Zurich prise de la Weid. Handkolorierte Panorama-Ansicht in Aquatinta gestochen. (Bild: 38,6x59,8 cm, Platte: 51x69 cm, Blatt: 63x81 cm).

      Zürich, Heinrich Appenzeller, 1884/1885. - Handkolorierte Originalausgabe einer der schönsten Ansichten der Stadt Zürich aus der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Die sich durch grösstmögliche Genauigkeit auszeichnende Vedute nahm der Zürcher Zeichner und Kupferstecher H. Siegfried (1814-1889) vom Garten des 1878 eröffneten Restaurants auf der Waid am Geissberg mit Blick über die Stadt und den See auf die Alpen auf. Die historisch bedeutungsvolle Momentaufnahme der sich wegen der prosperierenden Industrie um diese Zeit schnell ausbreitenden Stadt zeigt "noch sehr vieles auf, was an längst vergangene Zeit erinnert" (Pietro Maggi). Die Eisenbahn nach Winterthur führt noch über die heutige Röntgenstrasse; während die rechtsufrige Seebahn noch gar nicht existierte, führt die linksufrige Bahn noch weitgehend über unbebautes Gelände und oberirdisch, bis sie beim heutigen Ulmberg-Strassentunnel für kurze Zeit verschwindet; das erst 1897 fertig gestellte Schweizerische Landesmuseum fehlt natürlich noch; ebenso die heutige Universität, die damals noch vorläufig im südlichen Flügel des Polytechnikums (heute ETH) untergebracht war; die später eingemeindeten Dörfer Wipkingen (vorne links) und Wiedikon (hinten) stehen noch teilweise im freien Gelände und unterhalb des Hauptbahnhofs gibt es noch keine grosse Strassenbrücke, auch die Quaibrücke war noch nicht gebaut" (Pietro Maggi im Kommentar zum Neudruck der erhaltenen Kupferplatte von 1997). Das Künstlerlexikon von Carl Brun, der das Blatt als eine von Siegfrieds reifsten Werken bezeichnet, datiert um 1870/75, die Baudaten einiger sicher identifizierbaren Bauwerke lassen aber nur den Schluss zu, dass Siegfried diese Ansicht 1884 oder im Frühjahr 1885 bei Heinrich Appenzeller in kleiner Auflage drucken liess. - (Wenige Knitterspuren).

        JAPANESE FAIRY TALE SERIES

      1885. [JAPANESE FAIRY TALE SERIES] Kobunsha. THE FIRST 13 VOLUMES OF THE JAPANESE FAIRY TALE SERIES. This set of the series was published by the Hasegawa family when they were known as Kobunsha, working from an address in Minami Saegicho, Tokyo, their first address. The series began in 1885, printed on plain, uncreped paper and hence a bit larger than the creped versions, approximately 18.1 x 12.3 cm. The very first issues of the first few volumes had romanized Japanese language titles and no series volume number. Later volumes from the series had romanized titles first, as do several of the volumes from this set: NEDZUMI NO YOME-IRI (#6), KOBUTORI (#7), YAMATO NO OROCHI (#9) - MOMOTARO, URASHIMA and KACHIKACHI YAMA seem to be quite early appearances as they do not have "englished" titles as in later printings. Indeed, the first volume MOMOTARO, without any indication of a series number, is very early, indeed. The first illustration in THE CUB'S TRIUMPH (#12) is of a norimono with a moveable flap that, when lifted, reveals the fox cub within. All of these are early printings from the 1880s and very difficult to assemble as a set as such. They all have a bit of cover and content wear and some edgewear, as well. The plain-paper back cover of #4 is edge chipped and has been laid down. The collection is housed in a custom clamshell box.

        Poster] Kathryn Kidder as Wanda in "Nordeck."

Kathryn Kidder (1867-1839) was born In Newark or Evanston, Ill (various reports) and was privately educated until she attended the North Western Female College (where Emma Willard received her degree). Her early rise was described in 1885 at the time of this poster: "Frank Mayo meantime had heard of this promising pupil, and at once hunted her up, with a view to offering her the character of the Countess Wanda in his play of 'Nordeck.' After a careful study of the character and its possibilities, she accepted Mr. Mayo's offer, and spoke of the character to a friend in these words: 'It is a part I would have chosen if I had been consulted, and given my choice; and, whatever the future may bring, much shall be ascribed to the very fortunate opportunity afforded me in the character of the lovely Countess Wanda.' This character in 'Nordeck' is indeed lovely, as Miss Kidder says. The author has suggested a character that is quite ideal, and the young actress has clothed it with life and naturalness while portraying the romantic possibilities of the creation with all the enthusiasm of a young girl in the first flower of fulfillment. And it is not too much to say that the character of Wanda is due largely to Miss Kidder's efforts, whether unaided or otherwise; for her lines allow rather than demand the character that she portrays. Miss Kidder is tall, with a bright rather than simply beautiful face, a figure that is willowy and lithe, and motions that are at one and the same time impetuous and graceful. She realizes and feels as well as looks the young and impulsive character." (Folio, Boston, vol. xxvii, June 1885, pp. 222-3). Afterwards she followed this with several Shakespeare seasons, playing Ophelia, Desdemona, Hermione and Perdita, Lady Macbeth, then Madame Sans-Gene; further Shakespeare revivals and old English comedy; School for Scandal, The Rivals, The Country Girl, then Salambo of Flaubert, and following this several modern plays, including The Embarrassment of Riches (Wallack's); The Woman of Impulse (Herald Square); and The Glass House." She had her own production company, wrote 'The Heart of her husband a domestic drama in three acts and two scenes', helped fund-raise for Women's Suffrage, and was married to Louis Kaufman Anspacher, an American playwright and director. Rare. OCLC and other databases show no copies of this nor any other posters for Nordeck nor for Kidder. The Library of Congress has an archive of her scrapbooks of news clippings relating to her stage career 1883-1909 and the NYPL has a promptbook of her play. A very good copy, restored at top edge, text banner affixed to bottom (Condition B+). [Attributes: First Edition]

      Buffalo: The Courier Lith. Co., 1885. First edition. A very good copy, restored at top edge, text banner affixed to bottom (Condition B+).. Three portraits of the young Belle Époque actress Kathryn Kidder, flanked by four full length photographs of her in costume, taken by Napoleon Sarony, the greatest photographer of the American theater.
