        Liberia: The America-African Republic. Being some impressions of the climate, resources, and people, resulting from personal observations and experiences in West Africa

      New York: Edward O. Jenkins' Sons, 1886. First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine. 107 pages plus an ad; with a number of engravings in the text. With an introduction by G. W. [George Whitefield] Samson critical of the U.S. government's failure to assist the former slaves who settled in Liberia with few resources. Stewart was born free in atnebellum South Carolina, attended college, was ordained a minister of the African Methodist Episcopal church, passed the bar, and held a never-ending string of influential positions in whatever community he found himself in. This book was written based on his experiences in Liberia as a professor in the early 1880s. He offers a history of the country, from its earliest founding as a colony for former slaves and free American blacks. Stewart was skeptical about Liberia's chances without support from the United States or some other power. He was equally critical of white attitudes, observing that God 'has stationed the climate there [in Tropical Africa] as a gloomy, watchful sentinel, with special orders against white men (p. 44).' The bad climate (which occupies several chapters of the book), caused much suffering among the residents of Liberia, but at least white men stayed away. Stewart also writes extensively on the relationship between 'Liberians' (American blacks and former slaves who relocated to Africa) and the native peoples they were displacing. He observed that many Liberians adopted Southern attititudes for work, believing the native Africans should do it (p.72). The solution would be 'fusion' between the natives and the American new-comers (p. 83). He concludes that the best hope for Liberia is the spread of Christianity. An important and widely-cited book, by a leading African American stateman and activist of the 19th century. Uncommon in commerce; many holdings in WorldCat, very few east of the Mississippi. A lovely copy in the publisher's original blue boards. Minor wear to extremities; previous owner's address stamp on rear pastedown, else a fine copy.

        Louis Agassiz His Life and Correspondence.

      1886 - 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).

        LA COMMEDIA DI DANTE ALIGHIERI COL COMMENTO INEDITO DI STEFANO TALICE DA RICALDONE. Pubblicato per cura di Vincenzo Promis e di Carlo Negroni.

      per Vincenzo Bona 1886 Prima edizione. Cm.35,5x25,7. Pg.XX, 396. Robusta legatura in mz.pelle coeva con piatti marmorizzati. Titoli e fregi in oro al dorso a quattro nervature, lievemente spellato. Timbro di antica proprietà rimosso al frontespizio. Lievi, fisiologiche fioriture, ma eccellente esemplare, di notevole rarità. "Furono due eruditi di prim'ordine quali Vincenzo Promis e Carlo Negroni (il primo è il Bibliotecario del Re, il secondo un bibliofilo che colleziona codici danteschi, nel 1888 ideatore della Società Dantesca Italiana, sindaco di Novara e senatore) a curare l'edizione della Commedia commentata da Stefano Talice. Due le stampe: a quella torinese del Bona (1886), seguì quella di Hoepli (1888), lussuosissima, voluta espressamente dal sovrano Umberto I. L'opera fu presentata come autografo, ovvero creazione originale del Talice (operante tra XV e l'inizio del XVI secolo, ma lontano dal suo paesello), anche se un filologo attento quale il Rodolfo Renier aveva avanzato già nel 1884 forti dubbi quanto all'originalità del contenuto della fonte, un codice cartaceo della Biblioteca Reale. Le glosse, infatti, potevano più facilmente appartenente all' "albero di famiglia" dei codici che derivavano da un famoso commento trecentesco di Benvenuto da Imola. Una delle preoccupazioni dei curatori, fu ovviamente quella di ricostruire la figura del dotto letterato: non solo quella dei Talice di Ricaldone (ma l'etimo del cognome potrebbe essere D'Alice) era nell'alto Monferrato famiglia "tra le più antiche e cospicue", ma il dotto Stefano, sulla scorta delle ricerche condotte da storici considerati affidabili quali l'acquese Guido Biorci e il torinese Emanuele Vallauri, fu identificato con quel magister, nonché egregius grammaticae professor, rector - direttore - scolarum Savillani (qui la fonte è la Storia di Savigliano del Canonico Casimiro Turletti, 1883 - 1888), nonché il trascrittore di un libro - Le Comodità in villa - del filosofo e agronomo Pier Crescenzio. Ma, in effetti, come si capisce bene, sul Talice sembran oggi più le lacune che le certezze (e forse c'è più di un sospetto che diverse identità possano essere confluite in una). Dal 1904, invece, un dato sicuro giunge da Michele Barbi, che individuò la fonte del commento del Talice da "una lettura fatta nel 1375 a Bologna da Benvenuto da Imola", mentre già nel 1891 un altro filologo, il Rocca, si era occupato del problema ritrovando somiglianze fortissime col commento del Talice nell'edizione del commento di Benvenuto da Imola, contenuta nel codice Laurenziano Ashburnhamiano 839. Concludeva il Barbi che, in entrambi i casi, si trattava di "stesure dell'esposizione bolognese di Benvenuto da Imola ma scritte "per opera di due diversi uditori" (cfr. Chiara Bentivegna, Il canto XVI del Purgatorio. Storia della critica). Ma "d'autore" risulta, almeno, la sottoscrizione, posta al termine del codicillo. Apprendiamo così che opera e lectura Dantis Aldigherii, poete florentini furon concluse per me Stephanum Talicem de Ricaldono in Burgo Liagniaci (Lagnasco), 15 kalendis novembris [il 18 ottobre, quindici giorni prima del 1° novembre] 1474, hora 12a (circa le sei di sera). Il nome di Dante è fondamentale per la giovane nazione che è l'Italia a fine XIX secolo. Nel 1865 cade il sesto centenario della nascita di Dante quando l'Unità è proclamata da soli quattro anni; in fondo basta questo per farne una bandiera nazionale...."

        Warten auf die Audienz

      um 1886 um 1886. Aquarell auf festem Karton, 14,7 x 22,2 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Der große Erfolg der belgischen Historienmalerei in Europa, allen voran der beiden Gemälde von Louis Gallait und Edouard de Biefve, die von 1842 an mehrere Jahre durch ganz Deutschland reisten, verliehen einem ganzen Genre Aufwind. Ihre strikte, Authentizität vermittelnde veristische Darstellung wurde zur Identifikationsfläche einer ganzen Generation, die nicht mehr Zuflucht in der Kunst suchten, sondern von ihr ein Eingreifen in das tatsächliche Leben erwarteten. Geets orientiert sich mit seinem Bild Warten auf die Audienz, das etwas mehr als vierzig Jahre später entstand und von dem wir hier eine herausragend ausgeführte Aquarellversion präsentieren können2, allerdings nicht an jenen vielfigurigen und wuchtigen Schilderungen seiner Landsmänner. Vielmehr verspürt man den Einfluss der französischen Salonmalerei, wie sie maßgeblich von Jean-Leon Gerome berühmt gemacht wurde. Geets steht dabei dessen Lehrer Paul Delaroche in diesem Bild näher als den meisten seiner Zeitgenossen. Willem Geets verkörpert mit seiner hier gezeigten Schilderung schon die Überschreitung der Historie vermittelnden Historienmalerei. Die Hintergründe der Szene sind ebenso unklar wie das weitere Geschehen. Es ist eine beliebige Momentaufnahme, der der Kontext fehlt. Diese Reduktion auf einen Fokuspunkt ist zwar für die Historienmalerei ebenso von entscheidender Bedeutung, doch in ihm musste stets das weite Drumherum enthalten sein. Das Fehlen eben jener Corona' aus historischen Fakten ist dabei bezeichnend für den weiteren Weg der Historienmalerei hin zu einer historisierenden Genremalerei. Die eigentlichen Protagonisten des Bildes sind nicht mehr die Personen der Vergangenheit, sondern die Ausstattung und die Perfektion, mit der sie wiedergegeben sind. Holbein und seinen Zeitgenossen nacheifernd, verlagert sich der Schwerpunkt der Bilderzählung vom "Was" zum "Wie" und begeistert durch eine Präzision, die jedem Detail die Möglichkeit gibt, bildimmanent zu werden. Was den Bildern an geschichtlicher Wahrheit fehlt, kompensieren sie durch eine perfekt inszenierte Requisite. In dieser durchgearbeiteten Schärfung' der Darstellung offenbart sich auch die Konkurrenz zur Photographie, die in jenen Jahren unaufhaltsam in den Bereich der Kunst vordrang. Man mag dies mit dem immer noch nicht vollständig rehabilitierten Begriff des "Historismus" schmähen, doch sollte man gerade in Bildern wie diesem erkennen, dass sich hier eine Entleerung der Bildformen von einem sinnstiftenden Zwang ereignet, der für die spätere Moderne prägend seien sollte. Erst wenn die Formen ahistorisch geworden sind und um ihrer selbst Willen verwendet werden können, eröffnet sich die Möglichkeit einer erneuten Sinnaufladung, wie sie spätestens seit dem Jugendstil und der abstrakten Kunst vollzogen wird. Natürlich ist Geets nicht abstrakt und auch nicht revolutionär, aber ein Blick auf jene Kunstströmungen im Kontext ihrer Zeit ermöglicht gerade dem, der über die Vogelperspektive des Nachgeborenen verfügt, jene vielschichtigen Verknüpfungen zu erkennen und zu verstehen, dass keine Kunst ohne Ahnen auskommt. Wie sie mit diesen umgeht, ist freilich eine andere Geschichte.

        Bibliography of South Australia

      Adelaide: E. Spiller, Government Printer, 1886. Octavo, 118 pp., lithographic title-page and wrappers, an outstanding copy in a navy quarter calf bookform box with gilt lettering. Scarce bibliography bearing the bookplate of Sir Henry Ayers, the successful colonial entrepreneur and longstanding premier of South Australia after whom Ayer's Rock was named.The bibliography was prepared by Thomas Gill, a South Australian resident and book collector, for distribution at the London Colonial & Indian Exhibition of 1886. This copy is beautifully preserve in the original lithographic wrappers featuring a bushland scene with native flora and fauna. Gill was a keen collector of Australiana, with a considerable personal collection reflecting his interests in geography, exploration and Aboriginal life. This bibliography was principally compiled from the publications in the author's library, and some years later in 1903 he published a bibliography of the Northern Territory.

SUMMARY: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is an 1876 novel about a young boy growing up along the Mississippi River. The story is set in the fictional town of St. Petersburg, inspired by Hannibal, Missouri, where Twain lived. Tom Sawyer lives with his Aunt Polly and his half-brother Sid. Tom dirties his clothes in a fight and is made to whitewash the fence the next day as punishment. He cleverly persuades his friends to trade him small treasures for the privilege of doing his work. He then trades the treasures for Sunday School tickets which one normally receives for memorizing verses, redeeming them for a Bible, much to the surprise and bewilderment of the superintendent who thought "it was simply preposterous that this boy had warehoused two thousand sheaves of Scriptural wisdom on his premises—a dozen would strain his capacity, without a doubt." BACKGROUND: Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "the Great American Novel". CONDITION: Condition is Good/Very Good. Some wear to edges, inner spine strengthened, little glue repair to inner hinge paper at end pages/still some wear, first few pages stick out a little but secure, pages are very good, slight age tone, slight crinkle to spine, hinges/text block are very good for close to 130 years old!!!

Contemporary olive green morocco, covers with gilt border and fleurons at corners, richly gilt spine in 6 compartments, gilt edges, inner dentelles (lower corners a bit pumbed). A beautifully bound copy of the finest work ever published on the Genus Crocus. "George Maw (1839-1912) was the industrious author and illustrator of his great 'Monograph of the Genus Crocus' (1886). A many-sided and remarkable man, Maw was not a botanist by profession but a chemist and geologist, a manufacturer of encaustic tiles at Broseley, Staffs. His monograph, the result of ten years of inquiry, was the most complete work of its kind that has been published on any genus. The plates of this work are marvels of comprehensive detail and put to shame those of many more skilled draughtmen. From a botanical point of view this work is a landmark..."(Blunt & Stearn p. 277 & 279). Maw collected in the Near East and North Africa. Plate 17 was never published.//An interesting association copy. On free endpaper the following has been written: "To Charles Maw from his affectionate cousin. The author.

        Anna Karenina

      Boston and New York : Thomas Y. Crowell & Company , 1886 First English Language Edition and First U.S. Edition, Translated by Nathan Haskell Dole. Copyright date 1886 with no later dates or printings indicated. The general bibliographic consensus is that the other Tolstoy titles opposite the title page determine the book's issue [i.e. the fewer the earlier]. This edition has NO titles opposite the title page. A scarce collectible copy of this literary classic. Bound in full leather, all page edges gilt, purple marbled end papers, raised bands on spine, gilt titles with elaborate gilt foliate decoration. Frontispiece is a photographic portrait of the author. Leather covers have some shelf wear especially at corners, with some scuffing to spine panel. Gilt titles are bright and clean. Binding is square and solid. Interior pages are clean with no markings and no foxing. The corner of the last blank page, pp.769/770 before a 3-page glossary, is bent and cut at the bottom corner, without impinging on the text. Frontispiece is a photographic portrait of the author. ***When he first read this novel, Dostoyevsky wrote: “Anna Karenina is sheer perfection as a work of art. No European work of fiction of our present day comes anywhere near it.” First issued serially in Russia in 1873; and first published in book form in Moscow, 1878; this translation was issued simultaneously in an English issue.*** Several binding variants were released, including brown, blue, and red cloth, though no priority exists. I am uncertain whether this is a deluxe binding or a rebinding at a later date. A celebrated classic and a significant book for any serious literature collection.
