        Letters of Horace Walpole

      1886. WALPOLE, Horace. The Letters of Horace Walpole, Earl of Orford, Edited by Peter Cunningham. London: Richard Bentley and Son, 1886. Nine volumes. Thick octavo, contemporary three-quarter brown morocco gilt, raised bands, top edges gilt; partially unopened. $1750.Handsomely bound 1886 illustrated edition of the entire series of WalpoleÂ’s correspondence. With 39 engraved portraits throughout of Walpole and his correspondents.Walpole (1717-97) is among the small group of writers of whom it may be said that their letters form their major work. In WalpoleÂ’s correspondence, printed gradually throughout the nineteenth century, “it is not too much to say that there is scarcely a dull pageÂ… In these epistles to Mann, to Montagu, to Mason, to Conway, to Lady Hervey, to Lady Ossory, to Hannah More, and a host of others, almost every element of wit and humour, variety and charm, is present. For gossip, anecdote, epigram, description, illustration, playfulness, pungency, novelty, surprise, there is nothing quite like them in English” (DNB XX, 632). “The best letter-writer in the English language” (Sir Walter Scott). First published in 1857. Lowndes, 2822. Spines lightly and evenly toned. An extremely good set.

        The Princess Casamassima

      London and New York: Macmillan, 1886. First American edition of James's political novel, issued from the English one-volume edition sheets, tracing the friendship of a penniless young bookbinder and an idle princess with revolutionary sympathies. "By way of defending the aristocracy he said to her that it couldn't be true they were all a bad lot (he used that expression because she had let him know that she liked him to speak in the manner of the people), inasmuch as he had an acquaintance among them -- a noble lady -- who was one of the purest, kindest, most conscientious human beings it was possible to imagine. At this she stopped short." BAL 10578, Edel and Laurence A29b. A beautiful copy. Octavo, modern full green morocco gilt, raised bands, gilt-tooled dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Bookplate, with a pencilled note recording the owner's purchase of the book in 1935, and the book's custom binding by Bayntun thirty years later.

        La Basilica di San Marino du Venezia

      1886 - The chromolithographs and engravings featured in this list appeared in the massive "La Basilica di San Marino du Venezia," published by the prolific Ferdinand Ongania in 1886. It 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. It forms two volumes of an overall monumental 12-volume epic, though these images comprised volumes that were complete in themselves.++ The images are large at 27x21", 68x53cm, and are packed with detail, and are 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. Each sheet has a protective paper guard attached to it on the left side, covering the entire image--the reason why you may see a shadow along one long side is just from the rolled-back protective sheet not getting completely out of the way. 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 it entirely into the picture.

        Les possédés

      Librairie Plon 1886 - Paris, Librairie Plon, sd ( 1886 ). 2 tomes en 2 volumes. Demi percaline vert olive, en partie non rogné (époque). 375 pp et 410 pp. Les couvertures sont conservées, mais pas les dos. Edition originale française. La traduction est due à Victor Derély. Concernant l’introduction en France de la littérature russe: “Après les premières histoires de la Russie et de son empire au XVIIIe siècle, occidentales ou traduites, la littérature russe se fait connaître en France dans la première moitié du XIXe siècle, d’abord par ses poètes. Quand Émile Dupré de Saint-Maure (1772-1854) publie une Anthologie russe en 1823, certains noms ne sont donc pas inconnus. C’est dans ce recueil qu’apparaît pour la première fois celui d’Alexandre Pouchkine. Un autre important recueil lui répond en 1846, Les Poètes Russes d’Élim Mestscherski ; il clôt cette période essentiellement poétique de la traduction. Une nouvelle période s’ouvre en effet avec la traduction par Louis Viardot (déjà aidé, en réalité, par Tourgueniev, installé en France par intermittences) des Nouvelles de Gogol, en 1845. Le livre remporte un fort succès, et contribue à établir la renommée de Gogol en Europe. D’autres textes de Gogol suivront. Mérimée traduit la Dame de pique de Pouchkine en 1849. L’œuvre est très remarquée. La traduction de la Fille du capitaine de Pouchkine en 1853 par Viardot connut un succès extraordinaire et de nombreuses rééditions. Viardot-Tourgueniev et Mérimée sont dans ces années les principales figures de la traduction des auteurs russes, Gogol et Pouchkine en tête, mais ce goût s’étend à d’autres figures célèbres, comme Xavier Marmier, l’infatigable explorateur des littératures nordiques, qui donna le Héros de notre temps de Lermontov en 1856 (NB: ce n’est pas la première traduction). Les œuvres de Tourgueniev, dont ce dernier souvent effectue lui-même la traduction ou la supervise, contribuent à la poursuite de cet élan et constituent les principales œuvres russes publiées en France dans les années 1860-1870. La renommée renouvelée de la littérature russe et de ses grands romans des années 1860 (celles, notamment, de Crime et châtiment en 1866 et de Guerre et Paix, 1866-1869) parvenant en Europe, les années 1870 voient paraître plusieurs études sur la littérature russe ancienne et contemporaine : Tableau de la littérature russe depuis son origine jusqu’a nos jours de Konstantin Petrov en 1872, Histoire de la littérature contemporaine en Russie de Céleste Courrière, en 1875, la Russie épique d’Alfred Rambaud en 1876. Guerre et Paix fut traduit en 1879, mais, paru en français à Saint-Pétersbourg, ne fut guère encore remarqué en France, malgré les efforts de Tourgueniev pour le faire connaître. Les années 1883-1886 sont un moment décisif. Aiguillonné par les articles d’Eugène-Melchior de Vogüé publiés dans la Revue des Deux Mondes à partir de 1883, plus tard réunis dans le Roman russe (1886), par l’émotion suscitée par la mort de Tourgueniev cette même année et les éloges adressés à sa mémoire, l’intérêt pour les grands écrivains russes reprend. 1884 voit paraître les deux premières traductions de Dostoïevski, celles d’Humiliés et offensés et de Crime et châtiment, tandis que Guerre et paix, dans les deux éditions françaises de sa traduction, en 1884 et 1886, à un moment plus favorable, obtient un large succès populaire. C’est alors une véritable russomanie littéraire qui s’abat sur la France. En nombre immense, romans, nouvelles et récits sont traduits et publiés, en volumes ou dans les principales revues de l’époque.” (source: site de la Bibliothèque russe et slave) Quelques traces d’usures aux reliures (solides), Couvertures en bon état malgré une estafilade sur la première du tome 2 et deux manques angulaires à d’autres. Exemplaire plutôt agréable, ayant un certain charme, ne comportant pas de rousseurs. L’intérieur de chaque volume est très bien conservé. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Small inkstamp to title page. * Fourth edition. Brazil enjoyed a remarkable period of rapid material progress and international importance under Emperors Pedro I and, especially, Pedro II, who reigned from 1831 to 1891. The government enacted a law in 1823 calling for the gradual replacement of the Portuguese Ordenacoes with codes informed by the Enlightenment ideas of the eighteenth century and the work of Jeremy Bentham. A Projecto for commercial law was published in 1836, another in 1838. The code was enacted in 1850 and its first two editions were published in 1858 and 1869. The later editions (1878, 1886, 1896) are the best because they contain extensive commentary. All of these early editions are rare. OCLC locates 6 copies of the 1886 edition in North America (Columbia, George Washington University, Harvard, University of Arizona, University of Pennsylvania, Yale).

Very rare first edition of this splendid pictorial and almost poetic memento of the Imperial Army manoeuvre in the vicinity of the recreational suburb of the capital, where the Emperor oversaw the annual military exercise. The French academic painter and military artist Detaille, renowned for his precision, designed in 1912 the new uniforms of the French army and after his death bequeathed an impressive collection of uniforms and other militaria to the Musée de l'Armée in Paris.

        Lecture, écriture et orthographe usuelle enseignées simultanément. Premiers exercices disposés en livre-tableau. Méthode de lecture basée sur le jeu des organes vocaux.

      Paris, Procure générale des Frères, 1886. ____ Monumental livre utilisé pour enseigner la lecture et l'écriture. Il est illustré par 25 photoglypties collées d'un enfant articulant une lettre ou une syllabe (de format 12,5 x 9,5 cm environ) . Les photographies représentent " l'aspect du visage au moment de l'articulation d'une lettre. Cette vue frappe les yeux de l'enfant et lui rend le son comme premanent." Le volume est monté sur une tige en bois qui permettait de le suspendre verticalement dans une salle de classe. Très rare. Aucun exemplaire dans OCLC. Tout l'ouvrage a été imprimé à Tours par Juliot sur des pages cartonnées. Il est mentionné sur la couverture que l'auteur est un "F. J." Des pages salies, mais assez bel exemplaire. ***** This very large book is illustrated by 25 photoglypties (woodburytypes), showing a child articulating a letter or a syllable. It is a teach-book for class-room, used to teach reading and writing. It seems precursor of the work of Georges Demeny, assistant of Jules Marey and pioneer in the invention of cinema. Georges Demeny in 1892 produced a series of chronophotographic images of his own face. He mouthed the phrase "Je vous aime". This famous series of pictures was projected, by means of a phenakistoscope, to a hearing-impaired audience, who successfully read Demeny's lips. He eventually sold the rights to his patents to Louis Gaumont. Demeny was one of the most important pioneers in the invention of cinema, bridging the gap from chronophotography to cinema.

Overall, quite an attractive copy of the first English translation, the translation having been made by Karl Marx's daughter, Eleanor Marx-Aveling, who also contributed a insightful introduction.

Francois Poncet de Cluny, 1837-1899, französischer Augenarzt und naturwissenschaftlicher Schriftsteller, wahrscheinlich von diesem gegengezeichnet und datiert: 24 aout 1886). Henri Leloir (1855-1896) chief of clinic for Fournier, later professor at Lille, is chiefly remembered for his writings on pathology, many of them with Émile Vidal (1825-1893), and his description of lupus vulgaris erythematoides (1891). His premature death removed one of the brilliant French dermatologists (Pusey A : The history of dermatology, pp. 119-120). Henri Leloir (1855-1896), einer der profiliertesten Dermatologen in Frankreich forschte u.a. mit dem berühmten französischen Hautarzt und Mitglied der Académie de Médecine Émile Vidal (1825-1893), später wurde er Professor in Lille und veröffentlichte u.a. über lupus vulgaris erythematoides. Neben chromolithographischen und Krankheitsbildern in Schwarzweiß-Lithographie auch einige eindrucksvolle Heliogravüren nach Schwarzweiß-Photographien (Pierre Arents), teils erschreckende Portraits, teils Detailaufnahmen des Krankheitsverlaufes zeigend. Eine Karte zeigt den Verlauf der Lepra-Epidemie in Norwegen 1879, die andere, mehrfach gefaltete Farbkarte der Erde, die Gegenden mit den häufigsten Lepraerkrankungen. Selten!

        Il Capitale. Critica dell'economia politica.

      Turin, Unione Tipografico-Editrice,, 1886. - Large 8vo. 685, (1) pp. In: "Biblioteca dell'Economista", Third Series, vol. 9, pt. 2. [Entire volume: (4), 903, (1) pp.]. Bound in later half calf with gilt spine and marbled covers. First Italian translation of Marx's landmark work, constituting what is arguably the greatest revolutionary work of the 19th century. Originally published in German in 1867, it was only this first part that appeared during Marx's lifetime. In Italy the book proved immensely influential in both communist and fascist circles: Antonio Gramsci, founding member and sometime leader of the Communist Party of Italy (PCI), based much of his theoretical and practical work on the present translation of "Das Kapital", while Ezra Pound read this Italian translation (which is among the most heavily annotated volumes in his personal library), and his horror at Marx's accounts of the exploitation of labour eventually developed into sympathy for fascism, based on Mussolini's socialist roots (cf. L. Rainey, A Poem Containing History: Textual Studies in The Cantos [1997], p. 125). - The translation was prepared in nine instalments, beginning in 1882, but was not published until 1886. Oddly, it remained relatively unknown: "It was difficult in Italy during that period to obtain Marx's works. With the exception of Cafiero's hard-to-find summary and some other summarizing pamphlets published by another Southern scholar, Pasquale Martiguetti of Benevento, those Italians who sought to consult Marx were forced (unless they could read the original German) to have recourse to the French translation of the first volume of 'Capital', published in 1875. Still, in 1887 Filippo Turati could complain that Marx's and Engels's writings either were defective or else unavailable in Italian versions. True, in 1886 Boccardo had published in the 'Biblioteca dell'Economista', an Italian translation of 'Capital', but this was inaccessible to those of modest means" (P. Piccone, Italian Marxism [1983], p. 65, translating from R. Michels, Storia Critica del Movimento Socialista Italiano [1921], p. 135). - Evenly browned throughout with very occasional minor brown spots, otherwise a very fine and clean copy. Andréas 154. Einaudi (not numbered, between no. 3769 and 3770). Cf. Mattioli 2287 (a 1916 reprint). Rubel 633. Marx-Engels Erstdrucke, p. 32f. PMM 359. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Collected Works

      1886. First Edition . ROSSETTI, Dante Gabriel. The Collected Works. London: Ellis and Scrutton, 1886. Two volumes. Thick small octavo, early 20th-century full blue morocco gilt, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, watered silk doublures, top edges gilt, uncut; original cloth bound in. $1500.First collected edition of Dante Rossetti’s poems and translations, edited by his brother, handsomely bound by Zaehnsdorf. The copy of New York City mayor and shipping magnate W.R. Grace.“A superb poet… From his earliest contributions to The Germ [a pre-Raphaelite literary magazine]… to the last unpublished poems collected by his brother, his strange genius is evident” (Kunitz & Haycraft, 534-45). Volume I includes Rossetti’s verse (including his acclaimed sonnet sequence “The House of Life”) and various prose tales and essays; Volume II features the author’s translations, especially of Dante Alighieri. With introductory essay by Rossetti’s brother William. Original blue cloth-gilt bound into both volumes. Simultaneously issued in a large-paper edition of only 30 copies, bound in four volumes. Rossetti 42. CBEL III:271. Armorial bookplate of New York City mayor and shipping magnate William Russell Grace. Today, Grace is best known as the founder of the steamship and trading company W.R. Grace, which began as a small firm exporting products out of Peru and quickly bought other companies until it became the large international corporation it is today. It was through his philanthropy that Grace became mayor of New York City. A well-publicized donation of $40,000 in supplies for famine-struck Ireland made him a popular public figure and he won the 1880 election without any political experience. By 1884, his tough stance against corruption had earned him a reputation as a reformer and succeeded in winning him a second term. Grace was a self-made multi-millionaire and remained an avid book collector right up until his death. Bookplate.Joints slightly tender. A lovely copy.
