SAINT-ALARY, Arsène Henri, artist. Le Drapeau. [The Flag] Ouvrage couronné par L'Acedémie Francaise. Paris: Calman Lévy, Éditeur, 1886.One of twenty-five copies printed on Papier du Japon (this copy No. 18). This copy beautifully illustrated in the margins of the text by thirty very fine original drawings by French caricaturist Arsène Henri Saint-Alary, thirteen in full color, seventeen in blue or brown sepia, all signed "H. de Sta."Small quarto (7 5/8 x 5 1/2 inches; 193 x 140 mm.). iv, 126, [1, imprint), [1, blank] pp. Bound ca. 1890 by Henri Joseph Pierson (stamp signed on verso of front free end-paper) in three quarter red morocco over marbled boards ruled in gilt. Smooth spine decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, marbled end-papers, top edge gilt, others uncut. A very fine example.Jules Arsène Arnaud Claretie (1840-1913) was a French literary figure and director of the Théâtre Français. He was born at Limoges. After studying at the lycée Bonaparte in Paris, he became a journalist, achieving great success as dramatic critic to Le Figaro and to the Opinion Nationale. He was a newspaper correspondent during the Franco-Prussian War, and during the Paris Commune acted as staff-officer in the National Guard. In 1885 he became director of the Théâtre Français, and from that time devoted his time chiefly to its administration until his death. During the battle for Octave Mirbeau's comedy Les affaires sont les affaires (Business is business), the Comité de Lecture was abolished, in October 1901, and Jules Claretie became the only person responsible for choosing the modern plays to be performed. He was elected a member of the Académie française in 1888, and took his seat in February 1889, being received by Ernest Renan.Arsène Henri Saint-Alary (1846-1920). French illustrator Henri de Sta was born in Versailles as Arsène Henri Saint-Alary. He began his career around 1882 with La Vie Artistique and the publishing house of Léon Vanier. Coming from a military family, garrison life became a regular theme in his career. De Sta worked as a humorous illustrator for Le Chat Noir after 1892. He was also present in Le Paris Bouffon (1885), Le Rire (1897) and Le Charivari (1900). He composed military alphabets, illustrated songs and produced comics for La Chronique Amusante from 1896, and for Les Contes Moraux et Merveilleux of the printing firm Pellerin d'Epinal.Besides being present in satirical magazines, he was also drawing extensively for children's books. His work can be seen in La Semaine de Suzette between 1905 and 1905, drawing picture stories that often starred an elephant named Toby. He also drew for Le Petit Journal Illustré de la Jeunesse. He was a member of the Society of Cartoonists under the chairmanship of Léandre and Steinlen.Henri Joseph Pierson was a late nineteenth century Parisian bookbinder whose fine work rivaled that of Michel, Canapé and Trautz.

Albert de SAINT-ALBIN (1843-1901), homme de lettres, vaudevilliste, rédacteur en chef du "Jockey", rédacteur au Figaro et chroniqueur sportif sous le pseudonyme de Robert Milton. Au moyen de cet ouvrage St. Albin nous fait faire la connaissance de presque toutes les salles d'armes de Paris, et nous décrit les méthodes et les mérites des différents maîtres et les qualités des meilleurs élèves. Par ses publications, St. Albin nous a donné une idée exacte et complète de l'escrime française à deux périodes distinctes et distantes l'une de l'autre de dix ans. Ses livres sont des documents qui resteront dans les bibliothèques des tireurs, car ils permettront de juger du passé et du présent, et de présager l'avenir de l'escrime en France, où l'art des armes est étudié et marche de progrès en progrès. Frédéric Régamey (1849-1925), est un artiste et écrivain français, à la fois peintre de sujets de sport, en particulier de l'escrime, paysagiste, aquarelliste, pastelliste, illustrateur, graveur et lithographe. 1ère Edition [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

There are also many photographs of Grant and his family including his last known photograph of Grant taken 19 July 1885, only four days before his death. The caption states in part, "For the first time, the old soldier.is seen with his eye glasses on, reading a newspaper. Our artist had taken the old hero several times before, by his permission, but it was in family groups and in constrained and unnatural positions.but when this last view of the great man was snatched from him, he was unaware of it, and it looks very natural.and shows the simplicity of the man more than volumes of writing could do."

The present album with more images than usually found and is numbered "No. 9" on the front pastedown.

        Also Sprach Zarathustra.

      Leipzig: Verlag von E. W. Fritzsch; Verlag von C. G. Naumann,, [1886] & 1891. Ein Buch fur Alle und Keinen. 4 parts in 2 volumes, octavo. Vol I: bound in near-contemporary green crushed morocco, title gilt to spine, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Vol II: bound in near contemporary brown crushed morocco, title gilt to spine, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. With the original grey front wrapper (with editor's note and errata) bound in. Vol. II from the library of Max Dreger, with his gilt monogram to the spine. Small inkstamp to verso of rear free endpapers. Spines faded, some minor scuffs to covers. A superb set. First collected edition, with the first volume containing the 1886 reissue of the first three parts with the new undated title page, and the second volume containing the first trade edition of the fourth part. The first three parts were originally printed and published separately by Ernst Schmeitzner between 1883 and 1884, but in 1886 he went bankrupt, and Fritzsch bought the entire Nietzsche catalogue and stock. The publisher then issued the first three parts of Nietzsche's magnum opus together in late 1886. The fourth part was originally published in 1885 as a privately printed edition of 45 copies for circulation among his most trusted friends: Schaberg notes that "it is a cliché of Nietzscheana that that when it came time to distribute copies of Zarathustra IV to his friends, the philosopher could find only seven qualified people" (Schaberg, p. 105).

        Creation Myth chromolithograph] Basilica di San Marino du Venezia,

      Ferdinand Ongania 1886 - Original chromolithograph from Ongania's massive work, 27x21", 68x53cm. Very good condition. [Ongania's work is an exhaustive study of the iconic building, the publication being known chiefly I think for its very large and sumptuous chromolithographs of the building's architecture, art, and endless detail.]** The main part of this image is the story of creation, starting in the innermost circle of images, where we find the creation of light (and darkness), and the rest, followed by the larger concentric circle showing the starry realms, the creation of the birds and fishes, then the land-based animals, and then (around "12 o'clock" on the second circle) comes the creation of life in Adam, where it all seems to go downhill. In the outer ring we see the creation and presentation of Eve, the various temptations, the nakedness realizations and then the banishment--not all together a happy ending. But the artwork is lovely, highlighted in gold. *** Image printed on a very thick paper that will now crack if you try the double-fold test, so although the paper is stable you do not want to bend it, though you wouldn't want to do that, anyway. Also all of the margins are not necessarily included in the photos--there were certain limitations in making the photographs, and some margins just didn't make ti entirely into the picture [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Gynoecology (sic) - a Collection of 34 medical pamphlets on Gynecology & Obstetrics.

      London: 1886 - A sammelband of pamphlets on gynecological & obstetric subjects dating from 1856 to 1886. Most likely the collection of Dr. Robert Barnes [1817- 1907] who was a well known obstetric physician. During his career he lectured on midwifery at three of the great London medical schools, London Hospital, St. Thomas' Hospital and St. George's Hospital. The main clues as to the identity of the compiler of this collection of pamphlets are to be found in the presentation inscription on the item by Lazarewitch ("To Doctor Robert Barnes.") and a presentation tag at the foot of p. 295 of the Johnstone article, 'The Menstrual Organ', extracted from the journal of the British Gynoecological Society ("From Spottiswoode & co., New- Street Square, London, E.C. For Dr. F. Barnes"). "A leading teacher and gynaecologist in London, Barnes was a rival of James Matthews Duncan both in debates at the Obstetrical Society and in practice. One of the first to work at the minute pathology of obstetrics, he influenced the progress of obstetric medicine. His name has been attached to an obstetric instrument and a curve of the pelvis." "Barnes took a prominent part of the founding of the Obstetrical Society of London in 1858 and was president in 1865-6. But a dispute with the council of this society led him in 1884 to establish the British Gynaecological Society, of which he was honorary president until his death. The Justification of the schism was the antagonism of the old society to the performance of ovariotomy and other important operations by obstetricians. Barnes was one of the pioneers of operative gynaecology, and the cause he advocated gained the day." (D.N.B.)Articles include:THOMAS (T.

        Gynoecology (sic) - a Collection of 34 medical pamphlets on Gynecology & Obstetrics.

      London:. c.1886.. Hardcover. Very good overall. A sammelband of pamphlets on gynecological & obstetric subjects dating from 1856 to 1886. Most likely the collection of Dr. Robert Barnes [1817- 1907] who was a well known obstetric physician. During his career he lectured on midwifery at three of the great London medical schools, London Hospital, St. Thomas' Hospital and St. George's Hospital. The main clues as to the identity of the compiler of this collection of pamphlets are to be found in the presentation inscription on the item by Lazarewitch ("To Doctor Robert Barnes....") and a presentation tag at the foot of p. 295 of the Johnstone article, 'The Menstrual Organ', extracted from the journal of the British Gynoecological Society ("From Spottiswoode & co., New- Street Square, London, E.C. For Dr. F. Barnes"). "A leading teacher and gynaecologist in London, Barnes was a rival of James Matthews Duncan both in debates at the Obstetrical Society and in practice. One of the first to work at the minute pathology of obstetrics, he influenced the progress of obstetric medicine. His name has been attached to an obstetric instrument and a curve of the pelvis." "Barnes took a prominent part of the founding of the Obstetrical Society of London in 1858 and was president in 1865-6. But a dispute with the council of this society led him in 1884 to establish the British Gynaecological Society, of which he was honorary president until his death. The Justification of the schism was the antagonism of the old society to the performance of ovariotomy and other important operations by obstetricians. Barnes was one of the pioneers of operative gynaecology, and the cause he advocated gained the day." (D.N.B.) Articles include: THOMAS (T.

        CONCEPTO PATOGÉNICO DE LA PELAGRA Y SU TRATAMIENTO HIDRO-MINERAL. (Manuscrito original).

      - Borrador de una Memoria sobre la Pelagra presentada a la Sociedad Hidrológica Española en octubre de 1886. Extenso manuscrito infolio de 298 pp. Una nota posterior fechada en Gijón a 12 de Julio de 1888 advierte de que la Memoria ha sido premiada y se le añaden citas y cifras para completar el trabajo. A la Memoria el autor añade unas láminas sacadas de autores como Casal, Roel y Olavide para mejor explicar la enfermedad. No se conoce que esta Memoria haya sido impresa. En la Memoria, después de la parte introductoria, hace una reseña histórica del mal, así como una extensa descripción con datos clínicos y seguimiento de enfermos con sus nombres y el alcance de la enfermedad. A esta parte sigue después otra de Conclusiones en la que aporta una serie de hipótesis sobre el origen y las causas afirmando que se puede hacer un tratamiento hidromineral de la misma con resultados positivos. Como ya había dejado postulado Casal en el siglo XVIII la pelagra es una enfermedad carencial (aunque en fechas tan recientes como la de 1914, una comisión de expertos promovida por parte del gobierno de los Estados Unidos determinó que la pelagra no estaba en absoluto relacionada con la dieta); por eso hoy no nos sorprende saber que los enfermos mejorasen en los establecimientos y balnearios, especialmente si pasaban un tiempo internados, pues eso conllevaba una alimentación más rica en proteínas que la que llevaban en sus lugares de origen. Calixto Rato y Roces, 1857-1947 Nació en Gijón y estudió Medicina en la Universidad de Zaragoza, doctorándose en Madrid (1878). Se licenció en Derecho por la Universidad de Oviedo. En Gijón fue subdelegado de Medicina e inspector de Sanidad. También fue médico de baños en San Adrián del Valle (León). Promovió la fundación del Monte de Piedad y Caja de Ahorros, presidiendo la junta de gobierno y ostentando la dirección y gerencia de la entidad nueve años. En 1885 propuso a la Junta de Sanidad la creación de una Casa de Socorro para asegurar la hospitalidad domiciliaria. Conferenciante de éxito y gran escritor en cuestiones científicas, fue un buen conocedor del folklore asturiano. Entre sus reconocimientos destacan la encomienda de Isabel la Católica, las cruces del Mérito Militar concedidas por su intervención en la Guerra de Cuba y la de Alfonso XII. Falleció en su ciudad natal. MANUSCRITOS LIBROS ANTIGUOS ASTURIAS

Illustrated with very attractive, engraved head and tail-pieces.Bound ca. 1886 by Charles Meunier (stamp-signed in gilt on lower turn-in). Full rose colored crushed morocco, each cover richly and decoratively bordered in gilt surrounding a rectangular foliate frame with sixteen flowers inlaid in black morocco and fourteen leaves inlaid in green morocco.

A spectacular binding on a beautifully printed book.Charles Meuniere (1865-1940) began his apprenticeship as a bookbinder at age eleven. Five years later, at age sixteen, he joined master binder Marius-Michel's workshop. He soon grew weary of producing traditional bindings and established his own bindery in 1885, at the tender age of twenty years old. CM was thought to be innovative and instinctive, with great reserves of energy and undeniable artistic talent. Drawing on traditional and modern techniques and forms of decoration, Meuniere mixed classical punches.with newly fashionable incised and modeled leather panels. His output was prodigious; by 1897 he had produced roughly six hundred bindings" (Art Nouveau and Art Deco Bookbinding, p. 194).Luís Vaz de Camoens (c. 1524-1580), is considered Portugal's and the Portuguese language's greatest poet. His mastery of verse has been compared to that of Shakespeare, Vondel, Homer, Virgil and Dante. He wrote a considerable amount of lyrical poetry and drama but is best remembered for his epic work Os Lusíadas (The Lusiads). His collection of poetry The Parnasum of Luís de Camões was lost in his lifetime. The influence of his masterpiece Os Lusíadas is so profound that Portuguese is sometimes called the "language of Camoens".

        tissé d'après les Enluminures des Manuscrits du XIVe au XVIe Siècle.

      Four full-page illus. & each page within a decorative border, all taken from early illuminated MSS. 50 pages. Small 4to, orig. Jansenist-style binding of morocco by J. Kauffmann-Petit & Maillard, doublures of blue morocco richly gilt & inlaid to a retrospective Renaissance motif consisting of green, brown, & blue morocco interlocking strap-work, five raised bands on spine, top & bottom edges gilt. Lyon: [A. Henry for A. Roux], 1886-88. This is one of the true marvels of nineteenth-century technology in the service of the "Book Arts," and absolutely must be seen to be fully appreciated. It is a spectacular neo-Gothic Book of Prayers, made of silvery-grey and black silk thread, woven together by means of the Jacquard automated loom method, the results being accurate to within one-tenth of a millimeter. There is a strange and wondrous dimensionality in these pages, which without exaggeration can be said to shimmer. The book also represents an important technical innovation: hundreds of thousands of punched cards were employed as automated weaving instructions, conveyed to an array of mechanized looms. It took two years of programming and weaving to create approximately 60 copies. At the time of its invention, in 1801, the Jacquard loom was the most complex programmable machine in existence. The incredible potential of the "Operations / Variables" punched card system, with its binary data and modern "Input / Output / Storage" capabilities, was seized upon by English visionary Charles Babbage, who integrated the process into his theoretical "Analytical Engine." James Essinger has argued convincingly that the Jacquard loom was pivotal in the in the development of computer science (see Jacquard's Web: How a Hand-loom led to the Birth of the Information Age, 2004). With uncanny prescience, the data input mechanisms and intricate algorithms that created the present volume prefigure modern computer automation and computer programming: input consisting of complex instructions conveyed to the mechanical looms by means of punched cards; output in the form preconceived patterns; and memory in which the instructions can be stored and subsequently recovered. Lillian Randall determined that the "illuminations" in the present Prayer Book actually came from a single source, namely a late 19th-century monograph published by Gruel and Engelmann: Imitation de Jésus-Christ, which contained reproductions of a variety of illuminated manuscripts from the 14th through the 16th-century. Our copy is in a perfect state of preservation and in an unusually elaborate version of the standard binding. Preserved in the original velvet-lined box. ❧ For a detailed account of the technical intricacies see: Paul Marais, "Livre de Prières tissé" in the Bulletin du Bibliophile (1889), pp. 163-66. Bowden, Faster than Thought: The Invention of Perforated Cards by M. Jacquard (London: 1953), pp. 23, 350-51, & 379-80. Michael Laird in The World from Here. Treasures of the Great Libraries of Los Angeles (edited by C. Burlingham & B. Whiteman, 2001), 63-"Despite the fact that this rare volume is not a printed book, it is of singular interest in that it was completely woven with silver and black silk thread. It also represents an extremely early book production involving automation and programming...The book was manufactured on silk looms that were programmed using the punched-card system developed by Joseph-Marie Jacquard (1752-1834). Several hundred thousand cards were required to program this curious magnum opus (the actual figure is not known, but estimates range from 106,000 to 500,000). After fifty failed attempts, it took two years to weave approximately sixty copies...It will be observed that the weave in the present volume is almost microscopic (it is exactly four hundred weft threads for every 2.5 centimeters [approximately one inch])...The movement of the machine was limited to one tenth of a millimeter, the result being an extremely precise piece of bookmaking, which, on account of the material used, truly gleams. It is noteworthy that Jacquard's looms, only slightly modified, are still in use today, producing some of the world's finest fabric for furniture. The punched instructional cards utilized by Jacquard's weaving machinery served as the primary inspiration for the famous 'Analytical Engine' conceived by Charles Babbage (1791-1871)...The present volume may represent the first, and probably the only, successful attempt at weaving a book." .

Arctic Bibliography 6118. During the golden age of arctic exploration between the 1840s and 1910s, a few names stand out -- Franklin, Kane, Markham, Byrd, and Peary among them -- but few are quite like Adolphus Greely, whose expedition to Lady Franklin Bay was both a scientific success and public tragedy. This narrative of the Lady Franklin Bay Expedition by the leader, Lt. Adolphus Greely, includes accounts of the battle with ice on the sea, the sledge journeys, the life of the men in camp and on the march, and the geography of territory explored; with a chapter on polar ice. Well illustrated and greatly detailed, the account combines narrative from journal excerpts to tell the story of one of the most celebrated and tragic of Arctic expeditions. The preface gives a good insight on the author. Though he is a stolid writer, it is an outstanding narrative. Appendices include notes on ethnology, natural history, ornithology, botany, and auroral displays. An excellent account of the American expedition of 1881-84, based at Fort Conger, Lady Franklin Bay, on the east coast of Ellesmere Island, which explored the north coast of Greenland from Cape Bryant to Cape Washington, the interior and west coast of Grinnell Land, and Hayes Sound on Ellesmere. All but seven members of the party perished of starvation before the survivors were rescued at Cape Sabine, Smith Sound. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

In mid-18th Century Scotland, 17-year-old David Balfour is cheated out of his inheritance by a greedy uncle, who has him kidnapped and shipped to the Carolinas; with numerous challenges Balfour manages to get back to Scotland to fight to regain his property and his name. Stevenson began KIDNAPPED early in 1885 "partly as a lark, partly as a pot-boiler" (according to himself); he finished it in Spring 1886, having interrupted it part way through to write DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE. He had accepted Sidney Colvin's suggestion to cut short the novel and leave the rest for a sequel (which he did, with DAVID BALFOUR / CATRIONA, in 1893).~This is a copy of the first issue (with "name his business" on p. 40, "nine o'clock" on p. 64, and "Long Islands" on p. 101). The ads also are in the first (April) state (some first-issue copies have the July ads that are present in the second issue). This copy's color is red, one of several used without priority.~This is a very good copy (spine darkened with a little wear, front endpaper slightly cracked); the front endpaper has an inked inscription dated 15 July 1886.

Wednesday, no date, but James lived at this address in flat number 13, on the fourth floor, from 1886 to 1898. Light mounting traces on blank fourth page. Fine condition.To Julian. In full, ""My dear Julian. I am equally indebted to the old Etonian & & to the new. 'Sneak' will bring down the house - I mean, alas, sell the edition. I shall reserve 'wolf' for tragedy, & bring in a baron on purpose. A wolfing baron is grand. But we must let the baronets of comedy only sneak at most 'shark.' Many thanks all round. Won’t you say something quite extraordinarily friendly to Mrs. Seymour for me? Yours ever Henry James""The Etonian was a monthly literary journal produced by Eton scholars, published between 1821 and 1824. This letter may be to author Julian Hawthorne (1846-1934), son of Nathaniel Hawthorne, who was a prolific writer of short stories. Henry James rarely agreed to be interviewed because he did not like publicity, but in 1905, he was interviewed by Julian Hawthorne in Los Angeles. ""Sneak"" may have been a short story, possibly published in an edition of The Etonian. In 1895, Henry James was raised to the peerage as Baron James of Hereford, in the County of Hereford. Julian may have congratulated James, hence, ""Many thanks all round… """
