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). Another copy located at the Library of Congress. British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 4:32.

Original red cloth, gilt lettering; an especially clean copy preserved in a red morocco-backed cloth case with a small book-label on the front paste-down. First edition, with both the title page and the envelope dated 1886. According to Williams, no more than fifty copies were printed: "This is a very rare Carroll item, and was unknown to me until quite recently . . . I have very great doubts as to whether this issue was ever really published, and strongly suspect that it was struck off for proof purposes. . . ." A delightful game on logic by Carroll (1832-98), author and mathematician. The game combines various forms of syllogization derived from his interest in mathematics along with his whimsical literary interest in nonsense.

ON REVERSE SIDE TRACKS OF DAMPING I SEND IT EMS ENSURED Aldo Carpi (1886-1973) was an Italian artist, painter and writer, author of a collection of memoirs concerning his imprisonment in the infamous Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp. Born in Milan, early in his youth he started studying fine arts under the tutelage of Stefano Bersani. In 1906 he joined the noted Brera Academy, where he met some of the most renowned Italian painters of the epoch, including Giuseppe Mentessi, Carlo Cattaneo, Cesare Tallone, as well as Achille Funi, Emilio Gola and Carlo Carrà. The following year he appeared at the Brera art exhibition, which was followed by his appearance at the 1912 Venice Biennale. Since then he participated in every Venetian Biennale excepting those held in 1940, 1950 and 1952. Drafted into the Italian Army in 1915, he served at various fronts of the Great War. In 1917 he married Maria Arpesani. In the 1920s, Carpi developed the style of his paintings and landscapes under the influence of Italian 19th century painters. For his works in 1925 he was awarded with the prestigious Premio Principe Umberto. In 1927 he became the author of new frescoes in the San Simpliciano Basilica in Milan. In 1930 he became the professor and deacon of the faculty of painting at his alma mater. In 1934 he also prepared a project for the new stained glass windows in the famous Duomo of Milan, which however was not completed until after the World War II. In 1937 he appeared at the Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne in Paris, where he was awarded a bronze medal. In January 1944, during the World War II, he was arrested after a colleague informed on him, and was imprisoned in the concentration camp Gusen I of the Mauthausen-Gusen system, where he kept a diary and made a number of sketches portraying life and death in the camp. Liberated at the end of the war, he returned to Milan, where in 1956 he was awarded the state prize for his works and cultural merits. He also became the rector of his alma mater. In 1972 he prepared one of his last major works, a large monographic exhibition of his works. He died in 1973 in Milan

        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]
