Joseph Marie Martin Van den Gheyn, né le 25 mai 1854 à Gand (Belgique) et décédé le 29 janvier 1913 à Bruxelles, est un prêtre jésuite belge. Bollandiste, il est connu comme ethnologue, anthropologue, paléographe et sanscritologue. Né à Gand, Joseph Van den Gheyn fait d'excellentes études secondaires avant d'entrer au noviciat des jésuites le 27 septembre 1871. Ses premiers articles publiés à partir de 1878 dans des revues françaises et belges sont rassemblés en un volume intitulé Essais de mythologie et philologie comparée (1885). En 1882-1883, il se trouve au collège de Bruxelles. L'année 1888 marque un tournant dans la carrière de Van den Gheyn. Il a 34 ans. Le 21 juin il est désigné pour rejoindre le groupe des bollandistes. Il collabore durant dix-sept ans à la publication des Acta Sanctorum (1888-1905). Il contribue particulièrement au deuxième volume des Acta Sanctorum du mois de novembre (Acta Sanctorum novembris). Concomitamment il enseigne le sanscrit à Paris de 1888 à 1891 à l'Institut catholique de Paris. En tant qu'anthropologue, il s'intéresse particulièrements aux races humaines et développe des théories qui désormais sont considérées comme entièrement dépassées, particulièrement celles concernant l'origine asiatique de la "race" noire et celles concernant ce qu'on appelait erronément à l'époque la "race aryenne". Van den Gheyn devient alors bibliographe et rédige son monumental catalogue des manuscrits, toujours utilisé actuellement. Ce catalogue reste son œuvre majeure. En 1896, il est appelé à diriger le cabinet des manuscrits de la Bibliothèque royale de Belgique dont il devient le conservateur en chef le 2 juillet 1909. En 1911 Van den Gheyn est le premier président de la Katholieke Vlaamsche Hoogeschooluitbreiding. Mais bientôt malade il doit renoncer à ses fonctions (fin décembre 1912). Il décède un mois plus tard, le 29 janvier 1913, dans sa petite chambre du Collège Saint-Michel. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Louis Agassiz His Life and Correspondence.

      8vo. 2 vols. Original blue cloth, gilt lettering to spines; pp. xi, 400, [8, pubs. list of works by Agassiz] & ix, 401-794, [6, pubs. list of works by Agassiz], 8 plates, frontispiece in each volume; near fine. Provenance: presentation copy, inscribed to front blank of each volume to Sara P. Lowell Blake from Mrs Agassiz, and with her calling card pasted at front of vol. I with the message ?My dear Sally - I have wished to bring these vols. to you myself - I leave them with a great deal of love from your old friend, and am so sorry dear not to see you & to hear that you are ill, Your loving E.C.A.? Sara Putnam Lowell Blake was the daughter of John Amory Lowell, the founder of the Lowell Institute where Louis Agassiz was a celebrated guest lecturer. It was probably at the Institute that Eliza first met Sally. Second edition. A biography of the naturalist and geologist Louis Agassiz (1807-1873) by his second wife. Elizabeth Agassiz accompanied her husband on his visit to Europe in 1859, and also on his expeditions to Brazil (1865-6) and to the Strait of Magellan (1871-2). Her biography first appeared in 1885, and presentation copies of any edition are uncommon. Agassiz's views are expressed trenchantly throughout, not least his opinion of Darwinism: "My recent studies have made more adverse than ever to the new scientific doctrines which are flourishing now in England... I trust to outlive this mania also" (p. 647).

        Also Sprach Zarathustra I-III (First Collected Edition of Zarathustra in Original Wrappers)

      Leipzig: Fritzsch, 1886. First collected edition. Wraps. Very Good +. First Collected Edition of Zarathustra in Original WrappersNIETZSCHE, Friedrich. Also Sprach Zarathustra I-III. E.W. Fritzsch, Leipzig, 1886. 3 parts in 1. TP + 1 leaf + 5-114 + 2 leaves + 1-101 + 2 leaves + 103 + [1]-119 Octavo. First Edition, Second Issue. Schaberg 45. PMM 370 (for 1st issue). Original Wrappers!The first appearance together of the first three parts of Nietzsche's masterpiece one of the most influential works of German literature. This issue was created by using the left-over printed sheet from the first edition (which had previously been issued separately), canceling the original title-pages and adding a new single-volume title (teils titelauflage) to the first part and half-titles to the other two parts. (Part IV was not publicly printed until 1891). Scarce copy in original wrappers. Thus Spoke Zarathustra is one of Nietzsche's most famous works, and Nietzsche regarded it as among his most significant. Thoroughly studied and re-studied by scholars throughout the 20th century, the character of Zarathustra stands as a figure marking the end of Modernity by some (i.e., Heidegger), the beginning of Post-Modernity by others (i.e., Derrida); the text, a personal soteriological narrative of Nietzsches own self-overcoming, and a parable for others towards the same transformation. Though Thus Spoke Zarathustra attempts to destroy and replace the Judeo-Christian world-view, Nietzsches style borrows heavily from the Old and New Testament. Nietzsche also adopts myriad metaphors, invoking animals, earth, air, fire, water, celestial bodies, plants, all in the service of describing the spiritual transformation of Zarathustra, a solitary, reflective, exceedingly strong-willed, sage-like, laughing and dancing voice of self-mastery who, accompanied by a proud, sharp-eyed eagle and a wise snake, believed in a mode of being beyond the common human condition but without the need to posit a transcendent other world. Nietzsche refers to this higher mode of being as superhuman (übermenschlich), one that embraces the doctrine of eternal recurrence, a doctrine for only the strongest who can love life in its entirety, who embrace their suffering and would only again will it to be thus!Inserted between pages 14 & 15 of Zarathustra III (with resulting minor discoloration to those pages), is Schmeitzners printed and folded sheet advertising all of Nietzsches books up to Zarathustra II on the outside page with details on Zarathustra III handwritten in by someone at the publishers offices. The interior and rear page contain ads for other books published by Schmeitzner, including works by Franz Overbeck and Paul Rée. Clearly, this was inserted into copies of Zarathustra III by Schmeitzner after printing and remained there unnoticed throughout the reformatting as the second issue by Fritzsch in 1886. CONDITION: Very good or better in original printed wrappers. Untrimmed pages with wide margins. Clean pages. Housed in custom clamshell box.

        LA PHOTOGRAPHIE EN BALLON. Avec une épreuve photoglyptique du cliché obtenu par MM. Gaston Tissandier et Jacques Ducom, a 600 mètres au-dessus de l'Ile Saint-Louis, a Paris.

      Gauthier-Villars, Paris 1886 - 8vo., vii, 52, (1) pp., Frontispiece photograph with printed overlay key, and 9 illustrations in text. Publisher's original printed wrappers which are chipped along the spine and soiled; the text is foxed, original owner's ink stamps on the blank reverse of the front wrapper. A good copy. This work, possibly the first practical manual on aerial photography, includes an historical survey. Gaston Tissandier (1843 - 1899) was a scientific scholar, educator and writer, and photographer. His early interest in ballooning stemmed from his studies in meteorology, with his first ascension on 16 August 1868. There were several notable aerial photographers prior to Tissandier and Jacques Ducom, including J.W. Black in Boston and Nadar in Paris; however, they were in stationary balloons. It was not until faster dry plate emulsions were introduced in 1878 that it became practical to make photographs from a free flowing balloon. "In June 1880 Paul Desmarets obtained two remarkable views of Rouen from a free balloon at a height of 4,200 ft., with an exposure of 1/20 second. Even these views were surpassed by the photographs of Jacques Ducom made five years later in a balloon navigated by Gaston Tissandier. Ducom's view of the Ile Saint-Louis, Paris, from 1,800 ft. leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. Through a magnifying glass people can be counted on the bridge." Gernsheim, The History of Photography., p. 508. Roosens and Salu # 613, likely did not examine a copy of this rare work; they list the pagination as 45 pp with 8 illustrations and the carbon frontis. WorldCat locates only 4 copies, with none in North America. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Arizona Champion Newspaper October 16, 1886

      Flagstaff, Arizona. Very Good. 1886. Newspaper. A scarce early issue of the Arizona Champion from October 16, 1886. Tears up to two inches, chips, penciled margin notes, and margin dampstains. Leaves are separated. One editorial discusses how Geronimo has been more popular since his surrender than before it, with another report from a former governor stating that General Miles' conditional surrender was best for peace. There is a notice from early Grand Canyon tourist guide and developer John Hance stating his claim to land at Grand Canyon. Another column answers the question "Are Cowboys Degenerating?", and one article argues that Flagstaff really needs a bank. Two other columns feature the illustrated brands and a reward proclamation for the Mogollon Live Stock Protective Association, with the brands of many well-known early Flagstaff ranchers. A timetable of the Atlantic & Pacific Railroad, a company instrumental in the land deals and settlement of northern Arizona, is on the front page. The Arizona Champion was published in Flagstaff from 1884-1891, when it became the Coconino Sun. The paper recorded much on northern Arizona's early ranching industry and development. ; 23 1/2" x 17 1/4"; 4 pp .

        Autograph Letter Signed to [William] Archer (drama critic, 1856-1924), 3 pages 8vo on conjoint leaves (some slight foxing), Florence, 1 January 1886.

      - Thanking Archer for the text of a document from which he plans to quote, and referring to the 'London misfortunes' [of Robert Louis Stevenson]. '. One doesn't easily obtain news of Skerryvore, but I gather, dimly, that its master has somewhat recovered his London misfortunes. He returns from the dead so often that I can't but think that some really fruitful life is in store for him yet. .' 'It was very kind of you to supply me with the very text of the desired document & a trouble I didn't mean to impress upon you. I have much enjoyed reading it again, & shall take the liberty of keeping it awhile, as the spirit will probably move me to quote from it. .'William Archer (1856-1924) was an influential theatre critic at the time, and was eager to encourage novelists to work on the stage. He was fluent in Norwegian and his translations of Henrik Ibsen's work brought social drama to the English stage. From 1890 onwards, James turned to the theatre in order to sustain his income, and rewrote his early novel The American for Edward Compton's Compton Comedy Theatre. He found play writing a struggle compared with novels, complaining to a colleague that it was 'The thirst for gold that is pushing me along this dishonourable path.' Archer came to the opening of the production at Southport - his support did much to allay James' anxieties for his play (Henry James: The Middle Years, 1884-1894, by Leon Edel).The 'Skerryvore' acquaintance is undoubtedly Robert Louis Stevenson. Stevenson lived in Bournemouth with his wife Fanny between 1884 and 1887, and James was one of the first and most frequent visitors to Skerryvore, the property that Thomas Stevenson brought as a wedding gift for his daughter-in-law. James and Stevenson had become close acquaintances after James' publication Art of Fiction in Longman's Magazine, in which James defended the true purpose of the novel. Stevenson followed up with A Humble Remonstrance, and his supportive manifesto led to an exchange of letters followed by a meeting in 1885. It was in 1886 that Stevenson achieved world-wide success with his 'shilling shocker', Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.Skerryvore was the home of Robert Louis Stevenson from 1885 to 1887, most of that time spent in ill health. James and Stevenson met when the latter replied to an essay by the former published in Longman's Magazine in 1884. They became close friends and James became a frequent and most welcome visitor to Skerryvore. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

      London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1886., 1886. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.141; [1], blank. Bound without the advertisement in full speckled brown calf with raised bands and red title label to spine. One or two tiny marks within; externally fine. The classic mystery crime novel/ horror story (or Crawler as Stevenson called it), inspired by the case of the Edinburgh body snatchers Burke and Hare, was written in just three days, although it was shelved by the author for three years as he considered it too disturbing for publication. Jekyll and Hyde is a chilling masterpiece work; a brilliantly suggestive, resonant study of human duality by a natural storyteller.

        Croquis Japonais. Suivi de : Le Jour de l'an au Japon.

      1886 - Tokio, chez l'auteur, 1886, 2 albums en un volume in-folio, couverture muette damassée vert tilleul , cahiers cousus à la Japonaise. Croquis Japonais, suite de 19 eaux-fortes, sur papier Japon -certaines signées dans la planche ; Le Jour de l'an, suite de 10 eaux-fortes sur papier Japon. Georges BIGOT (1860 Paris-Bièvres 1927), peintre et dessinateur français, fut l'élève de Jean-Léon Gérôme et de Carolus Duran aux Beaux-Arts de Paris. Il collabora à de nombreuses revues : La Vie Moderne, Le Chat Noir, Le Rire, Le Frou-Frou, l'Illustration, . (Dico-Solo, 79 , Osterwalder 1890-1945, 126). En 1882 il se rend au Japon et s'installe à Yokohama, puis il emménagera à Tokyo, ville dans laquelle il enseignera le dessin, puis le français. Passionné du Japon, très vite il apprend la langue et intègre les moeurs. Il publie des albums, dans lesquels il transcrit la vie quotidienne de l'époque et la mutation de ce pays, du féodalisme vers le modernisme. L'Album "Croquis Japonais" parut sous diverses éditions en 1886, avec des couvertures et des gravures différentes. Notre exemplaire, sur papier Japon, comprend dix-neuf eaux-fortes, qui sont un précieux témoignages, quasi ethnographique, des gens de la vie de "tous les jours". Dans le "Chôya Shimbun" de décembre 1886 paraît un article dans lequel on peut lire : "‘Il y a dans le quartier de Kôjimachi, un artiste français du nom de Bigot qui est arrivé récemment au Japon. Il invite chez lui des éboueurs, des chanteurs de rue ou des marchands ambulants, et fait des esquisses de ce genre de Japonais qu'il envoie en France. Ce style de dessin joue au détriment de notre réputation parmi les étrangers " "Le Jour de l'An au Japon" est un album humoristique composé d'une page de titre suivie de dix planches, divisées en scénettes. Il caricature "l'occidentalisation" de la société Japonaise en la confrontant avec la société traditionnelle. Salissures à la couverture et légères usures, pliures aux coins internes et externes, quelques fines piqûres internes. Livres

        The Unrivalled Cook-Book

      New York: Harper & Brothers, Franklin Square, 1886. Octavo, viii, 639 pages. First edition. A large and significant collection of southern receipts. Southern chef Sean Brock calls this, "the definitive text of Southern cooking". More than two hundred Creole recipes are drawn from the manuscript recipe collection of a family friend, a "Madame ______ of New Orleans." Others are from classic English and Continental sources. Historian David Shields believes the book contains the first appearance of a recipe in print for boiled peanuts: "Choose fresh, well-filled peanuts. Carefully selecting them, as nearly as possible, the same size. Boil them in salt water, drain and serve. This is generally served before the soup." The Unrivalled Cook-Book was published just a year after the issuance of Lafcadio Hearn's La Cuisine Creole, and the Women's Christian Exchange's Creole Cookery Book, making it one of the earliest collections of Creole recipes. Internally near fine, with just a bit of age-toning to the text block. In slightly edgeworn, brick-red oil cloth with, as is frequently found with oil-cloth, adhesions from an old paper wrapper. This books remains rare in the marketplace and highly sought after. [OCLC locates twenty-four copies; not in Bitting, Cagle, or Uhler].

      St. Petersburg: Tipografiia V. S. Balasheva 1886 - Quarto (33 × 25 cm). Brown cloth spine over original printed card boards; [10], 53, [2] pp. and ten lithographed plates by Ch. Ivanson of St. Petersburg, of which nine chromolithographs and one black-and-white. Ticket of a St.Petersburg book binder to front board verso and tiny St. Petersburg pre-revolutionary bookstore stamp to title. Small owner inscription to ffep; boards lightly rubbed to edges; internally nearly flawless save for occasional spots, with the plates in fine condition and all tissue guards intact. Rare atlas on poisonous fish, consisting of a long article on their poison, its effects and methods of treatment, zoological descriptions of poisonous fish, as well as ten lithographic plates, of which nine beautifully colored chromolithographs. Text throughout in Russian and French in facing columns. Savchenko, who died the year before the atlas was published, was a doctor of the Russian Imperial Navy who circumnavigated the world on the Gaidamak in 1877, returning with an array of rare aquatic specimen as well as information used to create the present atlas. According to his preface, the work was intended to help sailors at sea determine which fish were safe for consumption. For this reason, the plates were created using the much more expensive chromo- lithographic process rather than photographic or simple lithographic reproductions, as the former allowed for greater accuracy and detail.
