Editions originales rares de ces deux ouvrages de théosophie publiés la même année. Un troisième sera publié en 1888, La théosophie sémitique. Lady Caithness était une spirite reconnue, qui fut, comme le mentionnent les pages de titre président honoraire de la Société théosophique d'Orient et d'Occident. Cette société se voulait être la branche française de la Société théosophique, dont elle fut un groupe officiel avant de devenir indépendante. Lady Caithness est une importante représentante de l'ésotérisme chrétien en France à la fin du 19ème siècle, et elle eut d'ailleurs un enterrement catholique. Il est intéressant de voir qu'en parlant de Bouddhisme, elle parle de la Trinité et en parlant de Christianisme, elle arrive aussi à parle de Bouddhisme. Elle considère aussi les apôtres comme des théosophes.Reliure demi-basane, dos lisse, filets dorés. Dos insolé, jaunissement général du papier, quelques rousseurs.

        Tartans of the Clans of Scotland, The

      1886. first edition. Perfect Pictures of the Tartans of Scotland as Worn at the Present Day" (Preface)GRANT, James. The Tartans of the Clans of Scotland. Also an introductory account of Celtic Scotland; Clanship, Chiefs, Their Dress, Arms., Etc., and with historical notes of each Clan. Emblazoned Arms of the Chiefs, and a map of the districts occupied by various clans are added. Edinburgh and London: W. & A.K. Johnston, 1886. First edition. Folio (14 1/2 x 10 3/4 inches; 368 x 272 mm.). [xix], [1, blank]. Color frontispiece and seventy-one fine color plates showing the Tartan of each clan accompanied by a leaf of text. Publisher's gray cloth, front cover decoratively stamped in gold, silver and colors with the Royal Arms of the Stuart Dynasty of Scotland. Spine decoratively stamped in gold and red, top edge gilt, decorative endpapers. Inner hinges expertly and almost invisibly repaired. Neat ink inscription dated May 25, [18]91 on the half-title. A near fine copy with the armorial bookplate of Patrick Horsburgh on the front free endpaper.There are three chapters of text at the beginning:Chapter I. Celtic Scotland.Chapter II. Clanship and Chiefs - Dress and Arms.Chapter III. Some Characteristics of the Highlanders."This Book has been produced to meet a rapidly increasing demand, both at home and abroad, for a high class work on "The Tartans of Scotland." Several good works have already been published on the subject, but they are now rarely to be met with, and can only be purchased at long intervals, and at greatly enhanced prices. Tartan, the use of which in former times was confined to the Highlanders of Scotland, is now worn, more or less, over all the world. Many of the patterns are very beautiful, and are now manufactured in all qualities; from the strong, rough plaid and kilt of the gillie to the finest silk, satin, or velvet for the dress of a lady. All tastes can be accommodated as to colours; from the gay, almost white, Tartan of the Royal Dress Stewart to the sombre dress of the Black Watch. With regard to the accuracy of the various Tartans represented, in all cases specimens of the actual cloth have been procured, and faithfully reproduced thread by thread, so that they may be relied on as perfect pictures of the Tartans of Scotland as worn at the present day. The introductory matter, comprised in three chapters, gives a brief history of Celtic Scotland from the earliest times - Clanship and Chiefs, their dress and arms, and the characteristics of the Highlanders. This is from the graphic pen of Mr James Grant, who has also written the Historical Notes descriptive of each Clan, in which his thorough knowledge of Highlanders and the Highlands has been of eminent service. The Illuminated Arms of the Chief of Clans have been taken from the most reliable authorities, and no expense has been spared to make the work worthy of the subject. Edinburgh, Dec. 1885."

First American Edition, published on the very same day as Cassell's edition in London. Like that edition, this book is unillustrated except for the frontispiece foldout map.~This copy is in printed yellow wrappers; others (at a higher price) were issued simultaneously in pictorial red cloth. Condition is good-to-very good (wrapper chipped at the bottom of the spine with other minor edge-wear, some rear cover soil). This American edition (either binding) is considerably scarcer than the English one -- and the one in wrappers, as here, seldom turns up in any better condition.

        Mémoire sur les Carmathes du Bahrain et les Fatimides. Leiden, E. J. Brill, 1886.

      1886. 8vo. 1 bl. f., (6), 232 pp. Original front printed wrapper cover bound within contemp. red half morocco with marbled boards and giltstamped spine. Marbled endpapers. Mémoires d'Histoire et de Géographie Orientales, No. 1, second edition (first published in 1862). Standard work on a mediaeval Shi'a Ismaili group, the Qarmatians of Bahrain, which at this period included much of eastern Arabia as well as the islands that comprise the present state. For much of the 10th century the Qarmatians were the most powerful force in the Persian Gulf and Middle East, controlling the coast of Oman and collecting tribute from the caliph in Baghdad. They instigated what has been termed a "century of terrorism" in Kufa: they considered the pilgrimage to Mecca a superstition and, once in control of the Bahraini state, they launched raids along the pilgrim routes crossing Arabia. In 906 they ambushed the pilgrim caravan returning from Mecca and massacred 20,000 pilgrims. The Qarmatians came close to raiding Baghdad in 927 and sacked Mecca and Medina in 930. The assault on Islam's holiest sites saw the Qarmatians desecrate the Well of Zamzam with corpses of Hajj pilgrims and take the Black Stone from Mecca to Al-Hasa. - The Dutch Arabist and Orientalist de Goeje (1836-1909) taught at the University of Leiden. He was editor of the "Encyclopaedia of Islam" and collated the Bodleian manuscripts of al-Idrisi. - A few contemporary pencil notes in the margins. With an appendix containing relevant Arabic texts. Minor rubbing to binding, but altogether a fine copy of this rare work; no copy in auction records. Macro, Bibliography of the Arabian Peninsula, 1052. OCLC 4738568. Cf. Fück 211 (for Goeje).

        Typed letter signed to musicologist Henry Prunières

      - 1 page. Quarto. Dated Le Belvédère, Montfort L'Amaury (S. & O.), June 6, [19]24. Typed in blue ink on personal letterhead with embossed initials and address of the composer at head. One amendation and composer's signature in black ink. In French (with translation). Ravel mentions no fewer than three of his works in this letter: L'enfant et les sortilèges; the Sonata for Piano and Violin; and the original piano-vocal version of the song, Ronsard à son Âme. Ravel and his dedicatee, the lyric soprano Marcelle Gerar, are dismayed because the song, which was to be published in Prunières's journal, La Revue musicale, lacks its dedication."From now until the first months of next year, I must finish: 1. a lyric work which is hardly begun [L'enfant. ]. 2. the Sonata for Piano and Violin, which is only half-finished. I'm not budging anymore for the whole year, and I must forget America." Creased at folds and somewhat overall; occasional light staining; two small rust holes to upper portion from early pin; signature slightly faded. Henry Prunieres (1886-1942) was a French musicologist who founded and directed the monthly periodical La Revue musicale from 1921 until 1939. Ravel composed Ronsard à son Âme for a special issue of the Revue celebrating the 400th anniversary of Pierre de Ronsard's birth in 1924. Marcelle Gerar (a.k.a. Marcelle Regerau) and Ravel premiered the song at Aeolian Hall in London in 1924; Ravel orchestrated it in 1935. As this and other letters attest, Ravel "worked unremittingly" on L'enfant et les sortilèges "throughout 1924 and the early months of 1925, and it was ready just in time for the première," in Monte Carlo on March 21, 1925. "(Five days before, he was writing to Colette [the librettist], asking her for words to fit a few recently composed bars.) The work was conducted by Victor de Sabata, with ballet sequences by the young [George] Balanchine." Roger Nichols in Grove Music Online.Although begun in 1923, the Sonata no. 2 in G major for Violin and Piano was not completed until 1927. "The writing continues the tradition of the Sonata for Violin and Cello, with considerable independence of the parts, a sparse texture, and some bitonal passages. The blues movement marks the composer's second adaptation of jazz, and the virtuoso perpetuum mobile continues in the tradition of Tzigane. As customary, the work is tightly organized, with material from the first and second movements recurring in the finale." Orenstein: Ravel Man and Musician, p. 198. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE

      Charles Scribner's Sons 1886 - First State of the First Edition, First printing One of the very scarce first printing hardback examples issued in green cloth. The US edition preceded the UK edition as the true first printing. An important title in the horror genre.

It precedes Oscar Wilde¿s THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY (1891), which in some respects resembles it, by five years, and is the prototype of all stories of multiple personality, transformation and possession; in some respects it is also a tale of drug dependency.¿ ¿ Clute and Nicholls. ¿A classic in the genre, it has been historically one of the most important stories in late Victorian literature.¿ ¿ Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 2094. ¿. one of the supreme works of horror literature, setting the pattern for and influencing as many imitations as DRACULA.¿ ¿ Sullivan (ed) The book is in beautiful condition with slight bumping to the corners.

        KIDNAPPED

      1886. being Memoirs of the Adventures of David Balfour in the Year 1751. [London:] Cassell & Company, 1886. 1 page undated ads plus 16 pp ads dated Apr 1886. Original terra-cotta cloth. First Edition, first issue. In mid-18th Century Scotland, 17-year-old David Balfour is cheated out of his inheritance by a greedy uncle, who has him kidnapped and shipped to the Carolinas; with numerous challenges Balfour manages to get back to Scotland to fight to regain his property and his name. Stevenson began KIDNAPPED early in 1885 "partly as a lark, partly as a pot-boiler" (according to himself); he finished it in Spring 1886, having interrupted it part way through to write DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE. He had accepted Sidney Colvin's suggestion to cut short the novel and leave the rest for a sequel (which he did, with DAVID BALFOUR / CATRIONA, in 1893).~This is a copy of the first issue (with "name his business" on p. 40, "nine o'clock" on p. 64, and "Long Islands" on p. 101). The ads also are in the first (April) state (some first-issue copies have the July ads that are present in the second issue). This copy's color is terra-cotta, one of several used without priority.~This is a near-fine copy, with scarcely any soil or wear (spine very slightly darkened, one very faint rub on the front cover, the volume only slightly askew); the original endpapers are not cracked, and the gilt lettering on the spine remains rather bright. We seldom see the first issue in much better condition. Beinecke 378; Princeton 31 (copies 1-4).

        Bird's Eye View of Confederate Prison Pen at Salisbury, N.C. Taken in 1864

      J.H. Bufford & Sons, 1886 - FASCINATING VIEW OF CIVIL WAR SCENE Copyright to C.A. Kraus. 25 3/4 x 36 1/2 inches, hand-colored lithograph, plate legend on bottom bearing title, location, and date, as well as a 12-item key identifying the key sites (toning consistent with age). This composition, compiled from a sketch made on site in 1864, presents a panoramic view of the Confederate Prison Pen at Salisbury, North Carolina toward the end of the Civil War. We see the camp from a bird’s-eye-view, set up on the grounds of a large "cotton factory" in which the prisoners were ordered to work as factory laborers. The prison pen is guarded and enclosed by a stockade. We also see the tents and pits dug into the ground where Union soldiers were forced to live. The print includes a 12-item key identifying the multi-story cotton factory in the center, black smith’s shop, officers’ quarters, headquarters and the escape tunnel. Hole from which Prisoners Tunneled and Escaped). Human figures--both prisoners and guards--are rendered with great detail and clarity throughout the composition. The use of perspective in the hills on the horizon powerfully conveys the stark contrast between the closed-in environment of the prison camp in the foreground and the wide open spaces that surround it. J. H. Bufford & Sons was a print shop in Boston that consisted of John Henry Bufford (1810-1870) and his sons Frank G. Bufford and John Henry Bufford, Jr. J.H. Bufford honed his craft in the Pendleton shop in Boston between the years 1829 and 1831, before moving to New York in 1835 to launch a career as an independent lithographer, working with notable printers such as George Endicott and Nathaniel Currer. In 1839, Bufford returned to his hometown of Boston and became the chief artist of Benjamin W. Thayer’s shop. In 1844, the name changed to J.H. Bufford & Co. Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery describes the works produced by Bufford as "lively, accomplished images in many forms, including sheet music, city views, marine views and landscapes," quoting one American reviewer: "Bufford's lithographs are sold wherever the flag of our country waves." Catalogued by Xueli Wang, Columbia University, BA; Courtauld Institute of Art, MA. You are warmly invited to visit our gallery at 1016 Madison Avenue in New York City to view this work whenever it might be convenient. It is my intention to have highly competitive prices.
