        Treacher's New Map of Sussex From the New Ordnance Survey Revised to Date Showing the New Parliamentary Divisions, Boroughs, Parishes, Railways, Stations etc.

      H & C Treacher, 1886 - Large-scale map of Sussex Lithographed map with original colour, backed on linen, folding into original green cloth cover with gilt lettering and blind stamping A map of Sussex produced from Ordnance Survey one inch sheets, which were joined together and laid on lithographic stones. It is possible in parts to see the joins of the sheets; for example, the town of St Anne near Lewes reads as St An-nne. The publishers Edward Stanford complained to the Stationary Office in 1886 of "a very flagrant case of piracy. The new 1-inch map of Sussex had been reproduced on the same scale by photolithography, and was being sold, in Brighton and elsewhere, at about half the price of the real Ordnance map"; it is quite possible that this was the map in question. Stanford was the agent for the Ordnance Survey at the time. This is the second edition, published by H & C Treacher. At the upper edge are three town plans of Tunbridge Wells, Brighton and Hove, and Hastings and St Leonards. At the lower right corner is an inset map continuing the map to the east along Rye Bay.The map is compiled from sheets 300-304, 316-320, and 331-334, all published between 1876 and 1882. The inset map is from sheet 321, published in 1880.The firm of H & C Treacher was originally founded in Brighton in 1858 by brothers Harry and Charles Treacher, and developed into a highly successful local booksellers, printers and stationers. By the time this map was printed, Harry's place had been taken by his nephew Henry Moreton, although the business continued under the same name. 1080 by 1890mm. (42.5 by 74.5 inches).

      A complete run of the official journal of the Barcelona Universal Exposition, each issue approx. 16 pp., under the editorial direction of Salvador Carrera, containing updates on the construction of the pavilions and other structures, notices, and approximately five pages of advertisements per issue. Profusely illustrated throughout with sketches of buildings, plans, maps, portraits of important figures, and other illustrations, including several full-color plates. Foxing throughout, some within images. Folio. Half leather with gold-decorated raised spine, original issues bound in. Some wear along spine and to corners. Barcelona (Oficinas de la Exposición Universal) 1886-1889. The Universal Exposition of Barcelona took place in the Parc de la Ciutadella from April 9 to December 9, 1888, with the participation of 22 different nations. It resulted in some of the first Modernist works in the city, including the café Castell dels Tres Dragons in the Parc, designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner. On account of the Exposition, the entire district of La Ribera was rehabilitated, and infrastructures throughout the city were improved. The initial idea to hold an Exposition in Barcelona came from the businessman Eugenio Serrano de Casanova, but soon required the assistance of the mayor of Barcelona, Francisco de Paula Rius y Taulet, together with an organizing committee of 7 others. La Exposición was published as the official newspaper of the organizing committee, beginning publication two years before the Exposition. As of February 2017, WorldCat locates five holdings in North American institutions.

        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. No copy in OCLC. In-plano. [640 x 510 mm] Collation : (34) pp. Cartonnage imprimé bleu de l'éditeur.

        Social Problems

      New York: Henry George, 1886. Early printing. 342, 8 [ad] pp. 8vo. Publisher's brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt, covers ruled and stamped in blind. A very good copy with some pages partially adhering, a few closed marginal tears, some rubbing and minor wear to binding. Early printing. 342, 8 [ad] pp. 8vo. Inscribed to a future critic. Inscribed on the first blank: "To M.W. Meagher with the compliments of Henry George. Nov./86." An early printing of this work by the influential 19th century labor reformer, economist, and advocate of a blend of socialism and free trade that found a popular audience among progressives at the end of the 19th century. Three years later the inscribee, Michael William Meagher, would publish a scathing attack on George's ideas, titled "Alluring Absurdities: Fallacies of Henry George." In the present copy Meagher has marked a few dozen passages throughout with pencil lines in the margins, and beside a footnote on p 285, in which George clarifies his use of the term "ground rent," Meagher exclaims "What pedantry!" Meagher was a delegate to the Irish National League of America at its 1884 convention, and the founder of the National Debating Association at Cooper Union in New York. His critique of George received favorable reviews on its publication. "By means of his vigorous oratorical style and his direct and simple writing, George had popularized a doctrine that combined trenchant criticism of inequality in modern society with celebration of the potential contribution of technological development and individual endeavor to the social welfare. His ideas had powerful, if divergent, meanings for urban workers, Irish rural laborers, political foes of Britain's landed gentry, Catholic and Protestant preachers of a social gospel, women residing in New York's slums, businessmen aspiring to lift taxes from their own enterprises, and literary enthusiasts of global free trade. Adherents of the Single Tax remedy for urban squalor were to appear frequently in the ranks of reformers during the Progressive Era and beyond" (ANB).

        Also sprach Zarathustra. Ein Buch für Alle und Keinen. In drei Theilen.

      Leipzig, Fritzsch, (1886) - [text recte 1883-84]. Lex 8vo. Very nice a bit later brown half calf with gilt spine. First and last leaf a bit browned and a bit of light brownspotting to the corner of the first leaves. Otherwise very nice and clean. A fine, fresh copy. 114; (4), 103, (1); (4), 119, (1) pp. First edition, title-issue, of Nietzsche's main work, in which the concept of the "Superman" (or "Overman") in introduced. This is actually the first printings of these three parts, but the many remainders were sold and issued with a new title-page (with no year, but 1886). Only 45 copies of the exceedingly scarce privately printed fourth part were issued, the first trade edition of which is from 1892."These books present several historical problems but none more confusing than their publication dates. It is difficult to determine when - and in some cases, if - the books were ever released for public sale..." (Schaberg, p. 88). It is difficult to overestimate the impact of Nietzsche's magnum opus. With this work he realizes his ideal of the poet-philosopher. It is, at the same time, a towering literary achievement and the most profound inquiry in the key notions of his philosophy (the Superman, the eternal return of the same).Schaberg: 45.

London: Cassell & Company, Limited, 1886. First edition, first issue, with "business" instead of "pleasure" on p. 40, line 11, "nine o'clock" instead of "twelve o'clock" on p. 64, line 1, and "Long Islands" instead of "Long Island" on p. 101, lines 9/10.

Full black crushed levant morocco, covers decorated with map design in gilt and blind, smooth spine lettered in gilt, red and black patterned liners and end-papers, all edges gilt. An exceptionally fine copy of the first edition, first issue of Stevenson's immortal and classic tale of the adventures of David Balfour in the year 1751. Kidnapped is an historical fiction adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, written as a "boys' novel" and first published in the magazine Young Folks from May to July 1886. A sequel, Catriona, was published in 1893. Stevenson's Jekyll and Hyde might have caused a sensation, but it was Kidnapped that drew the attention of members of the Victorian intellectual elite and firmly established Stevenson as a major British literary figure. "The year of 1886 was truly Stevenson's annus mirabilis, for between January and May that year he wrote another masterpiece. Serialised in May in Young Folks and published in book form in July, Kidnapped was later hailed by Henry James-as the greatest of Louis's books… in Kidnapped for the first time he managed wholly successfully to dovetail high adventure with deep psychology" (McClynn, Robert Louis Stevenson, p. 266). Beinecke 378; Prideaux, pp. 46-48.
