        New Zealand and South Pacific Ferns

      New Zealand, Australia, South Pacific, circa 1886-1890. Nineteenth Century album containing numerous fern specimens harvested by an especially artistic plant collector, uniquely displayed in 31 colourful motifs, with manuscript captions in a fine hand identifying them by scientific Latin names. Several specimens are very large. Qto. 31 pages. Maroon leather boards titled "New Zealand Ferns" and bordered in gilt, with original satin endpapers, gilt edged heavy art cardstock leaves. Volume measures approximately 26 x 31 x 7 cm. A pleasing volume in which is presented a bountiful collection in artistic arrangements. The collector or botanist who created this lovely herbarium has yet to be identified, however further investigation may find it to be Mrs. Frederica Bell, wife of Tom Bell (1839-1929), an important historical New Zealand figure known as King of the Kermadecs. It is interesting to note that the Whanganui Regional Museum holds an album presented in the same manner, with manuscript captions in a like hand, perhaps the same hand as it is somewhat unordinary, and contained in a binding of consistent description to the present volume. The album held by the museum is titled "New Zealand Ferns. Mrs. Tom Bell, 1886." While it is not confirmed whether Mrs. Bell compiled the album or it was gifted to her, it is certainly conceivable that she was its creator. The best recorded and most successful attempt at cultivating Raoul Island (Sunday Island, Rangitahua), was made by the Bell family, who lived there for over three decades from 1877 to 1913 and who kept diaries of their adventures. Tom (originally from Yorkshire) and Frederica married around 1866 and had ten children, one of whom. One of their eldest sons, Roy, made a name for himself as a botanist, as a photographer, and for his knowledge of birds, particularly on the island. It is quite likely that he learned much about botany from his mother Frederica who was born into a Lancashire family of farmers. Tom had previously tried his hand as a gold miner, drapery business owner, and hotelier. Frederica was the one with plant knowledge and agricultural experience, and thus surely played a critical role in the family's legacy of cultivating Raoul Island. A visitor to the island in the late 1880s recorded at least 54 species of exotic plants being cultivated by the Bells, some of which included pawpaw, guava, pineapple, pomegranate, mango, sugar cane, six varieties of taro, fourteen types of bananas, date palm, several vegetables including kumara, as well as Norfolk pine, and even coffee and Havana tobacco! [The latter was a gift from a former Governor of New Zealand and friend of Tom Bell.] Indeed their farming endeavours gained high repute, and from 1889-1892 a New Zealand Government Settlement Scheme resulted in four families and eight individuals arriving on Raoul to establish gardens for the provision of fruit and produce to the New Zealand mainland. A substantial selection of ferns native to New Zealand, Australia, and South Pacific islands, is presented in uncommonly artistic and elegant arrangements by a nineteenth century botanical enthusiast. The specimens have been remarkably well preserved and retain their natural hues of deep mauve, camouflage sage, brilliant silver, vibrant gold and yellows, rich burgundies and hints of orange. Their delicate textures remain intact, and occasionally feature naturally defined borders and perfectly aligned sori affixed to some of the leaves, as only mother nature can perfect. A most aesthetically pleasing botanical work, following are a few examples of the specimens found within: •Cyathea dealbata - also known as the silver tree-fern, or silver fern or as ponga (from Maori kaponga or ponga), a species endemic to New Zealand, which is a symbol commonly associated with the country both overseas and by New Zealanders themselves. The earliest use of the silver fern as an official national symbol was by the New Zealand Army during the Second Boer War •Adiantum affine - attributed to German botanist, plant taxonomist, and pharmacist Carl Ludwig Willdenow who was a founder of phytogeography •Pteris incisa [Histiopteris incisa] - which was described as a genus not long before in 1875. Nicknamed the bat's wing fern, water fern or fern mata, it is found in Australia, New Zealand and in other South Pacific islands region. •Dicksonia squarrosa - endemic to New Zealand forests and commonly called wheki or rough tree fern •Gleichenia - a genus restricted to New Caledonia in the South Pacific is displayed together with a lovely sprawling specimen of Cunninghamii identified by English botanist and explorer Allan Cunningham during his extensive collecting expedition to Australia from 1816 to 1831. •Hypolepis millefolium - the thousand-leaved fern identified by William Jackson Hooker in 1852 •Hymenophyllum Scabrun - attributed to Sir John Herschel and described in Edward Lowe's "New and rare Ferns" published in 1871. The Hymenophyllum is named for its fronds of very thin translucent tissue, which limit its growth to only very humid areas. •Lomaria lanceolata - prolific in New Zealand, also native to Australia, possibly also Fiji, Samoa and Tahiti, common in damp forests, especially along stream banks. •Asplenium gracillimum - here erroneously identified as Asplenium bulbiferum, which is common today and even more common from this era. Both are native to New Zealand and Australia, the Asplenium gracillimum producing fewer bulbils and having more widely set frond segments. Earlier literature refers to the Australian plants as Asplenium bulbiferum s.sp. gracillimum. •Pellaea rotundifolia - the button fern •Nephrodium velutinum •Trichomanes reniforme in a lovely mauve shade - better known as the kidney fern, which has since been re-classified as Hymenophyllum nephrophyllum

        Madame Bovary

      London: Vizetelly & Co, 1886. First English language edition. Very Good. Octavo: [2, publisher's ad], [i-vii], viii-xxii, 383; complete with the frontispiece and four illustrations. Original publisher's blue-green cloth binding with gilt lettering on the spine, gilt borders and center gilt cherub motif framing the title; publisher's blind stamp on rear cover. A Very Good copy that has been rebacked, preserving the original end-papers (although inner hinges show work). Otherwise a fairly clean, attractive copy internally (and priced competitively with the other copies in cloth). Flaubert's Emma Bovary rapidly gained notoriety for seduction and suicide following the novel's release and surrounding obscenity lawsuit in 1857. It would take another thirty years before the English edition of Flaubert's masterwork was translated and brought to Britain by Eleanor Marx-Aveling, daughter of Karl Marx, who aimed to give the English "a chance of reading... and seeing for themselves whether there is even the slightest foundation for this charge of immorality" (xii). Today, the novel is considered a masterpiece. "Madame Bovary is first and foremost a major milestone in the development of modern and, eventually, modernist fiction, as it introduced or intensified such developments as authorial 'impersonality', free indirect narration and a willingness to delve thematically into the banality and vulgarity of contemporary life" (Sayeau). Very Good.

        ALS - Eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift.

      London 24.IX.1886. 4 Seiten 8. Mit blau gedrucktem Briefkopf. Henry Maudsley (1835-1918), englischer Psychiater, seinerzeit der bedeutendste Vertreter seines Faches in Großbritannien. - An den englischen Neurologen und Naturforscher Henry Charlton Bastian (1837-1915), dem er für die Übersendung "of your learned treatise" (vermutlich "Paralyses, Cerebral, Bulbar and Spinal") dankt."... How glad I am that I am not immortal! That is what it has made me feel, since it has shown me how many things I should have to go on to learn, were I gifted with that fatal curse .Why such a villainous type, odious to the eyes of gods and men? You might, by a malignant metempsychosis, have been transmigrated into a Yankee - the most offensive animal in creation - to have selected such a type.Of course I have not yet read the book - have only looked into it here and there - but I have seen enough to beget a hope that it will clarify the confusion in which I at present am with regard to 'centres' and 'centres', motor and other-kinded in the convolutions. High metaphysical creations I should be apt to call such 'centres' ."

        Lettre autographe signée et enveloppe adressée à la Comtesse Potocka : « Et cela, madame, n'est pas de la pose, en prose. »

      - S.l [Paris] s.d. [12 février 1886], 9,8x15,5cm, 5 pages sur 2 feuillets. - Guy de Maupassant lettera autografa firmata e busta indirizzata alla Contessa Potocka: "E questo, signora, non sta ponendo in prosa. " Sl [Parigi] ND [12 febbraio 1886], 9,8x 15,5 cm, 5 pagine su 3 fogli. Divertente e commovente lettera sia letteraria e romantica. Maupassant ad Antibes, in occasione di un matrimonio, affrontare una lettera sorprendente alla contessa Potocka. E 'sia il suo amico e donna che corteggia il gusto o la mondanità. Da parte sua, si è unita in fretta il suo gruppo a "libro dei Maccabei", una cerchia di ammiratori su whichthe regna padrona assoluta. E 'gourmet Potocka per la sua gentilezza per una nuova pubblicato di recente, Miss Perla, "Sono stato molto lungo, signora, senza scrivere a voi perché mi avete ribellati - letteralmente - facendomi i complimenti per la signorina Pearl, una giunca, sono sicuro. "E 'del tutto il diritto di criticare il suo lavoro:" Ho il diritto di essere grave dato il nome dell'autore [...] " Egli sospetta l'entourage maschio della contessa influenzare il suo giudizio: "Anche se sei stato influenzato da notevoli e incompetenti uomini vi onoriamo con la vostra fiducia di aver apprezzato questo nuovo e degno di un prezzo Mointhyon (io non so nemmeno non come si scrive Montyon) come la forma e la sostanza. "Maupassant riprende il suo metodo precedente: si inizia ad una distanza di un gruppo di cui fa parte ancora. E 'anche i salotti della contessa, che sono diversi "considerevoli uomini" egli cita. Il Montyon prezzo che non pretende di conoscere incantesimo, è un premio letterario per i libri di "modi più utili." Eppure, ammette poche righe dopo: "Volevo dimostrare a tutti confonde letteratura con Virtù - allora non hanno nulla in comune. "Una società che può essere chiamato morale. Ma la morale in Maupassant dà per iscritto: "Bene, dopo questo processo iniquo opto per la letteratura. " La signorina Pearl è stato rilasciato solo un mese prima, 16 gennaio 1886 Le Figaro. Eppure, si lancia in una critica concisa e divertente del suo testo, senza perdere graffiare il suo passaggio corrispondente: "Come hai potuto giudicare con simpatia così banale storia inverosimile di questa famiglia di pazzi vivere dietro l'Osservatorio in profondità in provincia - (come è nuovo) [...] Oh! Oh! Oh! Ah! Ah! Ah! che si tratta di una favola ingegnoso! E la rivelazione avviene in modo splendido, di una torta dei re! Si piange in gesso stoffa, che è un fumetto circa, e l'altro riconoscere, cade a terra come un foulard, che è un certo effetto! "Non sembra trovare alcuna con il suo lavoro nonostante il suo successo:" Certo che l'invenzione di questa favola a Berquin è una certa piattezza, l'osservazione di perfetta imprecisione, lo sviluppo di un'ingenuità toccante, che ha tutti toccati. Poiché ho ricevuto molte lettere. " Qualunque sia successo perché secondo Maupassant, il pericolo è diversa: "Io dico che per iscritto di tali dolci virtuosi senza reperti di ogni genere, senza makeup artist e anche senza indirizzo penna Forse si arriva a ... accademia. Ma questo è tutto, e non abbastanza. "Si scusa per essere molto esigente," Questo è come io sono irritabile nella mia solitudine, dove la vita non è gay. Io lavoro; Io lavoro molto; Ho gli occhi irritati, mal di stomaco, mal di schiena; e il mio cuore batte giorno e notte. "Egli accusa i suoi modi corrispondenti in cui lei indossa con lui come con gli altri suoi corteggiatori del" gruppo Maccabei. " Egli pensa che "[...] molto spesso, con una certa tristezza per una donna Vorrei davvero, sinceramente amico, ma la cui gentilezza per me è così variabile che l'amicizia con lei una ballerina in equilibrio su sul filo del rasoio. " Ma lui si vendica poche righe dopo, ricordando le sue visite ai suoi amici Marie Kann e la signora Reagan (Marie-Clothilde Legrand, contessa di Fournès) e il suo amico pittore Henri Gervex "che porta la signora Reagan duke duke Principe dal principe, sta diventando, con la sua padrona di casa che crede rapito, un communard il regicidio, anche se è passato in questo mondo, un cattolico praticante. "Finalmente dopo le sue poche righe umoristici, ha ripreso il suo atteggiamento cupo, molto peggio nei suoi ultimi anni da vivere," ho quasi esco in bianco e io sono così annoiato al pensiero di tutto cosa avrei potuto fare per distrarmi, non ho neanche il coraggio di commuovermi. " - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Drôle et émouvante lettre à la fois littéraire et amoureuse, 122 lignes à l'encre noire sur deux feuillets dont un remplié, enveloppe jointe. Maupassant, à Antibes à l'occasion d'un mariage, adresse une étonnante lettre à la Comtesse Potocka. Elle est à la fois son amie et une femme qu'il courtise par goût ou mondanité. De son côté, elle l'intègre rapidement à son groupe de « Macchabées », un cercle composé de soupirants sur lequelle elle règne en maîtresse absolue. Il gourmande Potocka pour sa bienveillance envers une nouvelle récemment parue, Mademoiselle Perle : « J'ai été bien longtemps, Madame, sans vous écrire parce que vous m'avez révolté - littérairement - en me faisant des compliments sur Melle Perle, une ordure, j'en suis certain. » Il se sent tout à fait habilité à critiquer son  ouvrage : « J'ai le droit d'être sévère étant donné le nom de l'auteur [...] » Il soupçonne l'entourage masculin de la Comtesse d'influencer son jugement : « Certes vous avez été influencée par les hommes considérables et incompétents que vous honorez de votre confiance pour avoir apprécié ainsi cette nouvelle digne d'un prix Mointhyon (Je ne sais même pas comment on écrit Montyon) autant par la forme que le fond. » Maupassant reprend son procédé précédent : il se met à distance d'un groupe dont il fait pourtant partie. Il est lui aussi des salons de la Comtesse, il ne diffère en rien des « hommes considérables » qu'il cite. Le prix Montyon qu'il prétend ne pas savoir orthographier, est une récompense littéraire destinée aux ouvrages « les plus utiles aux m
