        Twixt Two Worlds: a narrative of the life and work of William Eglinton.

      - London, Psychological Press 1886. Quarto publisher's green cloth blocked in red & black (recased and rebacked with the original spine preserved, this rubbed and with a little loss at the tips); [4],196pp, etched portrait by Tissot & 8 colour litho plates, illustrations through the text. Scattered spotting, mostly at the ends and a thoroughly decent copy. Some of the colour plates, which are by the bird painter Keulemans, are as astonishing and beautiful as any exercise in lithography ever done and make one wonder whether Barnett Freedman owned a copy of this. Wentworth (84 & 76 note) wrongly attributes the plates and many of the text illustrations as well as the portrait to Tissot (as did I until my attention was drawn to chapter XVII). Eglinton was one of the most successful and polished mediums of the day, specialising in spirit writing but not adverse to the odd materialization. Tissot apparently became involved after the death of his mistress Mrs Newton and we are given an account of the seance where she appeared, kissed him and shook hands. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Liberia: The Americo-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. First edition. Octavo. 107pp., illustrations. Bound in modern quarter calf and gray paper over boards with black morocco spine label gilt. The very edge of the front fly has been archivally strengthened, affecting one letter in the inscription, a light dampstain in the bottom corner of the text block, still a handsome, very good copy of a rare book. Inscribed by the author to the wife of African-American journalist T. Thomas Fortune: "To Mrs. Carrie Fortune, Yours very truly, T. McCants Stewar[t]. Feb. 13th, '86". Thomas McCants Stewart (also known as T. McCants), born in Charleston, South Carolina, in 1853, was an exceptional 19th Century African-American. As a lawyer, minister, emigrationist, writer, and lecturer, his life intersected with many of the best-known figures of antebellum and Reconstruction America: Booker T. Washington, T. Thomas Fortune, and Francis J. Grimke, to name a few. His biography was bound up with the history of black life in Charleston, the early years of Howard University, immigrationist ventures in Liberia, and the development of the Bethel A.M.E. Church in New York City. His portrait appeared in the landmark book meant to illustrate the progress of the race: Men of Mark: Eminent, Progressive and Rising by Rev. William J. Simmons (Cleveland, Ohio: George M. Rewell & Company, 1887). He has been the subject of a fairly recent biography: African-American Odyssey: The Stewarts, 1853-1963 by Albert S. Broussard (Lawrence: University Press of Kansas, 1998). T. Thomas Fortune was the foremost African-American journalist of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Using his editorial position at a series of black newspapers in New York City, Fortune established himself as a leading spokesman and defender of the rights of African-Americans in both the South and the North. He married Carrie C. Smiley in the late 1870s, but the marriage dissolved in the early 1900s (two children, Jessica and Frederick, survived to adulthood). An exceptionally uncommon title, inscribed copies are rare. We've had one other, inscribed to a relative the day before this copy was inscribed. .

        LE CANTIQUE DES CANTIQUES

      Paris: Librairie Hachette, 1886. "EXEMPLAIRE RESERVE," THE ARTIST'S COPY n. Hardcover. A Giant Folio "Song of Songs" in "Flore Ornamentale" Style, This the Unique Copy Bound for the Illustrator. 514 x 381 mm (20 1/4 x 15"). 1 p.l. (half title), 38, [4] pp. "EXEMPLAIRE RESERVE," THE ARTIST'S COPY. MARVELOUS DARK BROWN MOROCCO INLAID IN THE "FLORE ORNAMENTALE" STYLE BY HENRI MARIUS MICHEL (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with an all-over design of entwined floral and foliate sprays incorporating many morocco inlays in shades of brown, tan, orange, navy, teal, and red, raised bands, spine compartments similarly inlaid with floral and foliate designs, turn-ins tooled with multiple gilt rules, silk brocade endleaves woven in a multi-color millefleurs pattern, all edges gilt. In the original morocco-trimmed chemise and matching slipcase. WITH 119 ILLUSTRATIONS, comprised of 25 plates and initials, all with extra proofs in three states; three tailpieces and an extra title, each of these with additional proofs in three states; and publisher's vignette with extra proof in two states, all by Edmond Heouin and Emile Boilvin after Bida (the as-issued plates and initials with [somewhat foxed] captioned tissue guards). Carteret IV, 87. Faint, never serious foxing on perhaps half the leaves, otherwise A VERY FINE COPY, the leaves clean and fresh with vast margins, and THE MAGNIFICENT BINDING LUSTROUS AND UNWORN. This is one of the most impressive examples one will ever see of Marius Michel the younger's ground-breaking and influential "La Flore Ornamentale" bindings, covering here a unique copy of a monumental edition of the "Song of Songs." Considered the best binder of his generation as well as the founder of modern French bookbinding, Henri Marius Michel (1846-1925) believed passionately "that bookbinding needed a new vocabulary of ornamentation in order to express the mood and spirit of contemporary authors." (Duncan & De Bartha) He found in the 1878 International Exposition a convenient and appropriate forum through which to promote the revolutionary style of decorative ornaments based on nature, a style he called "La Flore Ornamentale." He was at first viewed as impudent and rebellious, and his work was objected to on theoretical grounds as being too much like "art," and too little like a product of the binder's craft. But, in the words of Duncan & De Bartha, "the young man's fervent convictions, as well as his superb technical skills, as both a binder and a gilder, won him an increasing number of supporters. By 1885 his designs were seen as a viable alternative to traditional bindings for certain books." Other binders began to imitate his approach, but Marius Michel the younger was the "undisputed leader of the new movement, [his] incomparable technique, harmonious selection of color, and infinite variety of plant motifs [placing] his work above those of his contemporaries." Our unique copy of this luxury edition of the "Song of Songs" was reserved especially for artist Alexandre Bida, and was augmented with nearly 100 additional proofs done on various papers. A pupil of Eugène Delacroix, Bida (1813-1895) was a painter of the Romantic school who became a master of Orientalism, a term used by art historians for the imitation or depiction of aspects of Middle Eastern and East Asian culture by artists from the West. Notable recent exhibitions of his work have been held at the Musée d'Art et d'Histoire du Judaïsme in Paris in March of 2012 ("Les Juifs dans l'Orientalisme") and at the National Gallery of Art in April of 2013 ("Orientalism: A Selection of Prints and Drawings"). In addition to the volume reserved for Bida, 10 special copies of this edition were printed on Chine, and ABPC and Americana Exchange describe auctions between 1987 and 2006 in which such copies in Marius Michel bindings similar to ours were sold (for as much as $35,200 and $40,600, including buyer's premiums).

      Vintage album on photograph of the Yale baseball team. Measuring 9" x 7". Undated, but 1886. A couple of small smudges, but overall fine. Stagg is on the extreme left of the photo leaning on a baseball bat. While Stagg is known primarily for his football prowess, he was also a fine baseball player who turned down the opportunity to play professionally. He did however, invent the batting cage! A nice, striking image. .

        O Le Tala I Tino O Tagata Ma Mea Ola Eseese ... A Manual of Zoology... in the Samoan Dialect

      Chilworth and London: Unwin Brothers, 1886. Octavo, illustrated, presentation note to Jason Spicer tipped in, bookplate of Edward Unwin; a very good copy in the original decorated boards. Samoan zoology. First edition: an uncommon and impressively detailed account of zoology entirely in the "Samoan Dialect". This was a presentation copy from the author, with his note tipped in 'Presented to Jas. Spicer Esq. With grateful acknowledgements of kind sympathy and generous aid Thos. Powell.' Thomas Powell worked for the London Missionary Society in the South Seas, and published several books on Samoan themes. His charming Manual of Zoology, printed almost entirely "in the Samoan dialect", covers the gamut of the animal kingdom, from protozoa such as the amoeba ("{i amipa}"), via the invertebrates, to birds and animals. Powell no doubt faced challenges in finding Samoan terms for many of the creatures described - few Samoans at the time of publication can have seen a St. Bernard dog ("{i maile a perenata paia}") or a rhinoceros ("{i isu-nifoa aferika}"), let alone a duck-billed platypus ("{i gutu-pato}"). This copy belonged to Edward Unwin, one of the Unwin Brothers who printed the book, and had previously been presented to the printer James Spicer by the author, to whom the Unwins were related by marriage.

        Hobson-Jobson: being a Glossary of Anglo-Indian Colloquial Words and Phrases, and of Kindred Terms;

      London: John Murray,, 1886. Etymological, Historical, Geographical, and Discursive. Octavo (216 × 135 mm). Contemporary red half morocco-grained leather "native" binding, red fine pimple-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine, bands bracketed by thick and thin paired gilt rules, edges finely sprinkled red, marbled endpapers. Title page in red and black, bound with the half-title. A little rubbed at the extremities, light browning, else very good. First edition. Soldier and scholar, Yule's edition of Marco Polo's travels won him the RGS Founder's Medal, and enhanced his reputation as "one of the leading authorities on the historical geography of central Asia in general and the history of medieval travel writing in particular" (ODNB). But Yule's reputation rests less on his scholarly writings than on his co-authorship, with A. C. Burnell , of this "extraordinary glossary of Anglo-Indian colloquial words and phrases … This encyclopaedic work … provides modern historians with a unique view of the everyday language of British officers in colonial India. Yule was fascinated by the complex history of the incorporation of Hindustani, Bengali, and other Indian terms into English usage, and his rendering of this history in the form of an idiosyncratic yet highly engaging glossary has proved, perhaps ironically, to be his most enduring literary contribution". Without doubt one of the most enlightening, and readable, dictionaries ever compiled. Essential reference, and very uncommon in this first edition. Ownership inscription of "H.A. Slin, Ootacamund, June '98" to the first blank.

        LE CANTIQUE DES CANTIQUES

      Paris: Librairie Hachette, 1886. "EXEMPLAIRE RESERVE," THE ARTIST'S COPY n. Hardcover. A Giant Folio "Song of Songs" in "Flore Ornamentale" Style, This the Unique Copy Bound for the Illustrator. 514 x 381 mm (20 1/4 x 15"). 1 p.l. (half title), 38, [4] pp. "EXEMPLAIRE RESERVE," THE ARTIST'S COPY. MARVELOUS DARK BROWN MOROCCO INLAID IN THE "FLORE ORNAMENTALE" STYLE BY HENRI MARIUS MICHEL (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with an all-over design of entwined floral and foliate sprays incorporating many morocco inlays in shades of brown, tan, orange, navy, teal, and red, raised bands, spine compartments similarly inlaid with floral and foliate designs, turn-ins tooled with multiple gilt rules, silk brocade endleaves woven in a multi-color millefleurs pattern, all edges gilt. In the original morocco-trimmed chemise and matching slipcase. WITH 119 ILLUSTRATIONS, comprised of 25 plates and initials, all with extra proofs in three states; three tailpieces and an extra title, each of these with additional proofs in three states; and publisher's vignette with extra proof in two states, all by Edmond Heouin and Emile Boilvin after Bida (the as-issued plates and initials with [somewhat foxed] captioned tissue guards). Carteret IV, 87. Faint, never serious foxing on perhaps half the leaves, otherwise A VERY FINE COPY, the leaves clean and fresh with vast margins, and THE MAGNIFICENT BINDING LUSTROUS AND UNWORN. This is one of the most impressive examples one will ever see of Marius Michel the younger's ground-breaking and influential "La Flore Ornamentale" bindings, covering here a unique copy of a monumental edition of the "Song of Songs." Considered the best binder of his generation as well as the founder of modern French bookbinding, Henri Marius Michel (1846-1925) believed passionately "that bookbinding needed a new vocabulary of ornamentation in order to express the mood and spirit of contemporary authors." (Duncan & De Bartha) He found in the 1878 International Exposition a convenient and appropriate forum through which to promote the revolutionary style of decorative ornaments based on nature, a style he called "La Flore Ornamentale." He was at first viewed as impudent and rebellious, and his work was objected to on theoretical grounds as being too much like "art," and too little like a product of the binder's craft. But, in the words of Duncan & De Bartha, "the young man's fervent convictions, as well as his superb technical skills, as both a binder and a gilder, won him an increasing number of supporters. By 1885 his designs were seen as a viable alternative to traditional bindings for certain books." Other binders began to imitate his approach, but Marius Michel the younger was the "undisputed leader of the new movement, [his] incomparable technique, harmonious selection of color, and infinite variety of plant motifs [placing] his work above those of his contemporaries." Our unique copy of this luxury edition of the "Song of Songs" was reserved especially for artist Alexandre Bida, and was augmented with nearly 100 additional proofs done on various papers. A pupil of Eug?ne Delacroix, Bida (1813-1895) was a painter of the Romantic school who became a master of Orientalism, a term used by art historians for the imitation or depiction of aspects of Middle Eastern and East Asian culture by artists from the West. Notable recent exhibitions of his work have been held at the Mus?e d'Art et d'Histoire du Juda?sme in Paris in March of 2012 ("Les Juifs dans l'Orientalisme") and at the National Gallery of Art in April of 2013 ("Orientalism: A Selection of Prints and Drawings"). In addition to the volume reserved for Bida, 10 special copies of this edition were printed on Chine, and ABPC and Americana Exchange describe auctions between 1987 and 2006 in which such copies in Marius Michel bindings similar to ours were sold (for as much as $35,200 and $40,600, including buyer's premiums).

        Autograph Transcription, signed ("S. Fillmore Bennett"), of his hymn "The Sweet By-and-By," as part of his Autograph Transcription "History of The Sweet By-and-By copied by the author for C.F. Gunther, Chicago"; with an Autograph Letter of transmission to C.F. Gunther

      Richmond, IL, may 14, 1886 - Bennett (1836-1898) composed the lyrics to what was to become one of America's most well known hymns in 1861, with music by Joseph P. Webster. The account of its composition, in less than 30 minutes, is given in this manuscript "History": "- I said, 'Webster, what is the matter now?' 'It's no matter,' he replied, 'it will be all right by and by.' The idea of the hymn came to me like a flash of sunlight, and I replied, 'The Sweet By and By! Why would not that make a good hymn?' 'Maybe it would,' he said indifferently. Turning to my desk I penned the words of the hymn as fast as I could write. I handed the words to Webster. As he read his eyes kindled, and stepping to the desk he began writing the notes. Taking his violin, he played the melody and then jotted down the notes of the chorus. It was not over thirty minutes from the time I took my pen to write the words before two friends with Webster and myself were singing the hymn -" "The Sweet By-and-By" was featured in the Academy Award winning film "Sergeant York"; Charles Ives used the tune in his Orchestral Set No. 2; it has become one of America's most reecognizable hymns 12mo.

        Restauratie aan de Sluis II, Zijkanmaal naar de Maas, 3 September 1886.

      1886. Original photograph, albumen print, 39 x 32,5 cm on mount. De sluis werd in 1861 in gebruik genomen en in de periode 1884 - 1886 gerestaureerd. Sinds 1932 wordt de sluis niet meer gebruikt. De sluisdeuren zijn thans verdwenen en in de sponningen van de bovensluis bevindt zich nu een kleine stuw. Deze voormalige enkelkerende schutsluis had een breedte van 5,5 meter en een 40 meter lange ovaalvormige schutkolk. In ieder sluishoofd bevond zich een enkelvoudige draaideur. De sluis moest oorspronkelijk een terreinverval van 4 meter overbruggen. Opzet en uitvoering zijn voor een kleine, weinig gebruikte sluis vrij opmerkelijk. - - - - - oude sluis in een zijkanaal van de Noordervaart: het Afwateringskanaal. Rond 1850 startte men op grote schaal met de vervening en ontginning van de Peel. Daartoe moest het gebied ontwaterd kunnen worden. De Maatschappij "Helenaveen" maakte een begin met grootscheepse ontginningen; door het graven van sloten werd het gebied ontwaterd. Om het overtollige water af te voeren kwam men al snel in de lagere gebieden van de Peel en de Maas terecht en werd het noodzakelijk om een kanalenstelsel aan te leggen voor de afvoer van het water en het vervoer van de turf. Omdat de Noordervaart bij lange na niet toereikend was voor de ontwatering van de Peel en omdat het zure Peelwater ongeschikt was voor de vloeiweiden langs de Zuid - Willemsvaart, werd in 1854 opdracht gegeven voor het graven van een kanaaltje van Beringe naar Neer aan de Maas. Het zou tevens moeten dienen voor de kleine scheepvaart, hoofdzakelijk turf en mijnhout. Het kanaal was bevaarbaar tot aan de Napoleonsweg in Neer. De sluis werd in 1861 in gebruik genomen en in de periode 1884 - 1886 gerestaureerd. Na de opening van het kanaal Wessem - Nederweert in 1929 was het afwateringskanaal niet meer van belang voor de scheepvaart en geleidelijk verlandde het. In 1932 is het kanaal gesloten. Langs het Afwateringskanaal heeft zich een rijke flora en fauna ontwikkeld. Veel fietsers kiezen het pad langs het kanaal om te genieten van het groen en de bloemenweelde langs de waterkant. Beslist een aanrader, en na een kleine 7 km kan je ook de 2e sluis in het afwateringskanaal bezoeken, inclusief de daar aanwezige cache Oude Sluis II. Verdroging van het kanaal is sinds enkele jaren een serieuze bedreiging voor de flora en fauna. KEYWORDS:netherlands / limburg / Neer / Maas
