        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."

        KIDNAPPED

      1886. being Memoirs of the Adventures of David Balfour in the Year 1751: Written by Himself. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1886. Original printed yellow wrappers. 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. See Beinecke 383 (cloth copy only; no mention of this binding); Princeton 31A, copy 2.

        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.

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).

        La théosophie universelle - Théosophie bouddhiste & Théosophie chrétienne.

      - Paris, L'Aurore du jour nouveau, Georges Carré & Bruxelles, A. Manceaux, 1886. 2 ouvrages in-8 reliés en 1 volume, [4]-121p & 174p. 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. Cachets de la Société théosophique sur les pages de titres. Il s'agit probablement des exemplaires qui furent conservés au sein de la Société théosophique d'Orient et d'Occident.

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. ____ 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.

        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.

        3 autograph letters signed ("GMaspero"). Paris & Ecuré, 1886-1916.

      1886. (Large) 8vo. A total of 3 pp. (5 ff.). Includes an autograph envelope. To an unidentified recipient about the scheduled unwrapping of the mummy of Pharaoh Me(r)nephta: "On déroule Ménephta demain à partir de 9 heures ou 9¼; ne l'oubliez pas [...]" (Cairo, 7 July 1907). - Merneptah was originally buried within tomb KV8 in the Valley of the Kings, but his mummy was not found there. In 1898 it was located along with eighteen other mummies in the mummy cache found in the tomb of Amenhotep II by Victor Loret. Merneptah's mummy was taken to Cairo and eventually unwrapped by Dr. G. Elliott Smith on July 8, 1907, who noted that "the body is that of an old man and is 1 meter 714 millimeters in height. Merneptah was almost completely bald, only a narrow fringe of white hair (now cut so close as to be seen only with difficulty) remaining on the temples and occiput. A few short (about 2 mill) black hairs were found on the upper lip and scattered, closely clipped hairs on the cheeks and chin. The general aspect of the face recalls that of Ramesses II, but the form of the cranium and the measurements of the face much more nearly agree with those of his [grand]father, Seti the Great". - Another letter to Madame Albert Robin about an invitation (22 October 1886), and another to the historian and archaeologist Paul Esdouhard d'Anisy about his admiration for the beauty of Roger van der Weyden's polyptychon "The Last Judgment" in Beaune (5 April 1916). - After the death of Auguste Mariette in 1881, Gaston Maspero succeeded him as head of the Egyptian Service d'Antiquités Égyptiennes and director of the Bulaq museum, today the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. In 1886 he resumed work begun by Mariette to uncover the Sphinx, removing more than 65 feet of sand and seeking tombs below it. He also introduced admission charges for Egyptian sites to the increasing number of tourists to pay for their upkeep and maintenance.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. O. O., 25. VI. 1886.

      1886. 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An die Schriftstellerin Louise von François (1817-93): "Verehrte Freundin, freilich haben Sie mich mit Ihrer langen Pause zeitweilig beunruhigt u. ich habe meinen Winkelried versuchsweise ausgesendet, ob Sie denn völlig verstummt wären. Nun Gottlob, Sie leben und sind gesund! - Auch ich kann dieses Frühjahr nicht rühmen - begonnen viel und wenig beendigt. Sechs neue Novellen sind sozusagen schreibfertig d. h. in meinem Kopfe, auch der Roman hat Gestalt gewonnen, d. h. wieder in meinem Kopfe, niedergeschrieben ist wenig, ich werde einen schnelleren Schritt anschlagen, da ich mich gegenwärtig kräftig fühle. Meine kleine Frau dagegen pinselt mit Furia an der Copie eines herrlichen Calame, den sie sich bei einer Verwandten geliehen hat und mein Mädchen malt - nicht ohne einen gewissen Schönheitssinn - Buchstaben. Ich schicke sie für einmal einfach in die Dorfschule. So steht es hier. Wohin wir Dreie in die Ferien gehen, ist noch unentschieden, jedenfalls in die Höhe. - Ich habe mir in der letzten Zeit den Franzosen Flaubert angesehen, welcher sich aber erst aus seiner neulich veröffentlichten Correspondenz mit George Sand erklärt. - Von Besuchen nenne ich die Linggs und Rodenbergs, dann den von Frl. von Druskovich, welche ein philosophisches Buch geschrieben hat [d. i. "Moderne Versuche eines Religionsersatzes. Ein philosophischer Essay" (Heidelberg, 1886)]. Sie ist unverändert. Der bei Ihnen steckbrieflich verfolgte Kraszewski trinkt und badet in Schinznach im Aargau. Ich werde ihn dort als alten Bekannten wohl besuchen, obschon ich über seinen 'Landesverrat' nicht recht hinwegkommen kann. Kellers Salander ist weit realistischer als alles Frühere von ihm [...]". - Wohlerhalten. Gedruckt in: Louise von François und Conrad Ferdinand Meyer. Ein Briefwechsel (2. Aufl., Berlin 1920), S. 189f.

        American Yacht List 1886 Olsen Bessey Club Pennants Signals Flags color plates

      1886 - The American Yacht List for 1886- Contains a Complete Register of the yacht Clubs of the United States and British Provinces with list of Officers, Names of Vessels and Owners, Addresses. also, facsimilies in chromo-lithograph of Club Pennants. Compiled by Niels Olsen Issued New York, 1886 by Henry Bessey, Steam Book and Job Printing pp. 230; 18 lovely chromolithographed color plates of the endless variety of nautical flags/ pennants, wonderful illustrated full page advertisements. With the original book seller tag of Thomas Manning- Yachting & Naval Books, 53 Beaver Street, NYC affixed to front paste-down. The color plates are devoted to grouping by clubs, schooners, steamers, sloops, cutters & Yawls as well as one which shows the U. S. Signal Service flags including"Coston's Telegraphic Night Signals" of letters. Period oblong cloth binding. outline ruled in blind concentric boxes, central large gilt pictorial device to front cover of the official club seal. Back cover is a different and more splendid ornate gilt pictorial advertisement for Durkee's Gauntlet Brand of Salad dressing and cold meat sauces. Photos capture better than words. Book is old. Further details below. In Good+ and in our opinion, completely acceptable condition for the vast majority of people. Old books are rarely perfect and if near flawless (almost as new) is what you seek, you will not find it with this item. Further condition details: Covers lightly age soiled, edges and corners lightly rubbed or age worn as seen, small old stain along the bottom edge of front cover, etc.- nothing offensive and the book still looks great. Textblock with some light minor scattered signs of usage, the binding is slightly shaken as typical due to the extremely fragile nature of most 19th century oblong bound hardback books, nothing heavy or unusual. Overall the book remains clean, tight & sound. A beautiful and very scarce 19th century color plate nautical book with a fantastic modern aesthetic appeal. The advertising is often as good as the flag plates in terms of concept and image. There is a lot of advertising for a wide range of products, clearly a very particular cross-section of the business economy of this era. A picture is worth a thousand words. Please examine pictures closely, as what you see is what we will send you. We enjoy old objects with small age flaws and feel they display character. We believe that slight wear to an old object gives it a modern appeal which exceeds the same item in untouched almost perfect condition. [note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws. We feel accuracy and understatement are virtues and we endeavor to practice them at all times in our listings.] Overall sound and despite any age flaws, still an interesting and very desirable historical book well worthy of ownership for any collection and/ or display. We've done our best to photograph the book so you can accurately see the condition and we've tried our very best to mention any flaws or issues.

        Surveying the Interior Regions of Gran Chaco & the Kogi People Using a Cranial Measuring Tool

      South America, 1886-1905. Archive of French explorer Joseph de Brettes who made four expeditions to South America including two to the not yet surveyed interior regions of Gran Chaco, consisting of a steel cranial measuring device used during his ethnographic examinations of the Arhuaco-Kagaba Indians (Kogi people) found in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, northern Colombia, a steel archaeological specimen, two offprint accounts written and illustrated by de Brettes describing his expeditions and scientific work in South America, and an offprint bibliographical outline of de Brettes' extensive explorations in South America and elsewhere as well as his naval and army service. All text is in French. A unique nineteenth century explorer's archive of documents, artifacts, and signatures. Together with personalia, including an album of autographs largely collected whilst in South America, 3 photographic identification cards, his personal library bookplate, a manuscript caricature drawing, a manuscript note to which is affixed a photograph of his family's grave site, and an offprint poem signed and dedicated by French poet Jehan Rictus in which is inserted a separate autographed note by Rictus both addressed to de Brettes. Together with correspondence connected with his efforts as Vice-President of a Portuguese railway company, in particular dealing with a meeting with the King, including 3 manuscript telegrams sent from Lisbon September 1905, and 2 manuscript letters dated 1905. Joseph de Brettes (1861-1934) made two geographical explorations to Chaco in South America, first in 1886, and again in 1888. From 1892 to 1893 he was exploring Colombia and making sociological and ethnographical observations of the Arhuaco and the Kogi people in the Sierra Nevada region. After a sojourn in France, he returned for further reconnaissance work in Colombia from 1895 to 1898. A skillful explorer, surveyor, and author of several notable works on the subject, a most ambitious businessman and delegate, recipient of several awards, all-but-forgotten today, the Bliothèque Nationale de France holds a collection of photographs, manuscripts and published works from de Brettes' illustrious career. From de Brettes' explorations and ethnographic studies in South America, the archive includes the following: A seldom seen nineteenth century cranial measuring device, being a simple clamp-styled metal apparatus in original and still functional conditional, measuring 28 cm tall when closed, and 33 cm wide when fully extended. This type of craniometry tool was used in the field of physical anthropology during the 19th century, and the first part of the 20th century. De Brettes' would have used this during his ethnographic examinations of the Arhuaco-Kagaba Indians (Kogi people) of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, northern Colombia. [Craniometry is the measurement of the cranium, usually the human skull. It is a subset of cephalometry, measurement of the head, which falls under the science of anthropometry which is the measurement of the human individual.] De Brettes' own working copy of his title, "Mission géographique dans le Chaco (Amérique du Sud)" published in 1889 immediately upon return from his expedition, and being a riveting account of travel through the Formosa province of Argentina and the Gran Chaco plains, partly along the Pilcomayo River, including hostile encounters with so-called "savage Indian tribes," and other perils. Small 8vo. 44 pages, titled wrappers. Replete with the author's annotations for a revised edition. Rare Offprint from the proceeding of the Anthropological Society of Paris, 1903. Title: "Les Indiens Arhouaques-Kaggabas. Réponses au questionnaire de sociologie et d'ethnographie de la Société d'anthropologie" by Joseph de Brettes. 8vo. 36 pages with in-text illustrations, titled wrappers. Chips to extremities, age-toning, else very good condition. An ornate archaeological specimen made of heavy steel and measuring approximately 8,5 x 3 x 1 cm. A detailed offprint bibliographical sketch of de Brettes' extensive explorations in Argentina and Colombia (1895), Tunisia, and elsewhere, as well as his naval and army service, also recording important meetings with monarchs and delegates, military assignments, and much more. Pertaining to de Brette's work in Portugal developing railroads, we find the following correspondence: Signed manuscript letter, Lisbon, 27 April 1905, from Albert Girard, whose office was at the king's court in the Palace of Necessidades, [Paço das Necessidades] Lisbon. The correspondence mentions Commander D. Fernando de Serpa, an official to the King of Portugal, who, on behalf of the king, presents de Brettes' with a scientific publication for review. Signed manuscript letter by de Brettes addressed to Monsieur [Maurice] Rouvier, Minister of France, written at a hotel in Lisbon on 8 September 1905, stating that the King of Portugal [King Carlos I of Portugal - The Martyr] will be receiving him at the palace for a meeting the following day. Three manuscript telegrams written in Lisbon, also dealing with de Brettes' meeting with the king. Items of a personal nature include three photographs of de Brettes' mounted to various forms of identification, and a guest book in which he collected autographs and greetings from 1890 to 1893. Approximately half of this volume contains signatures and inscriptions made in South America, whilst de Brettes' visited Puerto Cabello in Venezuela, and Riohacha, Santa Marta and Bogotá in Colombia. On entry is a an extensive dedication written and signed at Curaçao on 7 January 1891 by Giuseppe [Joseph] Chiarini (1823-1897), a most influential circus director of international fame, who early in 1890, had returned to Central and South America, and under the Royal Spanish Circus, toured extensively Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Honduras, and San Salvador over a seven year period. Further investigation will surely lead to other significant personalities. Contemporary to de Brettes' explorations, the 1888 issue of The Scottish Geographical Magazine reported as follows (Vol 4, page 164): "Exploration of the Chaco etc.... The Paris Geographical Society has received a telegram from M. Joseph de Brettes who has been entrusted with a mission by the Minister of Public Instruction, informing it that he has recommenced his travels through the Chaco and the central region of South America. M de Brettes started about a year ago from France with the intention of following up a journey which he had begun a short time before, and of passing through the triangle in South America which is bordered by civilized and inhabited countries... an immense extent of territory which has never been surveyed and over which there are no routes or roads. This territory is called the Chaco and is sub-divided into the Northern the Central and the Southern Chaco, all three of which are inhabited by savage Indian tribes. Several efforts have been made to penetrate into the two former by water and it will be remembered that Dr. Crevaux perished three or four years ago while following the course of the Rio Pilcomayo. Other travellers have reconnoitred the course of the Rio Vermejo but it is generally agreed that these two streams are not navigable in their entire length, so M de Brettes resolved to try the land route through the Southern Chaco. His first journey was commenced in 1885, when, going up the Parana River from Buenos Ayres as far as Corrientes, he endeavoured to reach the town of Candeliard upon the opposite coast. The distance was 700 miles and M de Brettes started with a caravan consisting of two Indians and sixteen horses. When he had got 200 miles inland he came upon an immense salt lake 116 miles long and convinced himself that the land route was practicable. But upon the forty-third day of his journey he was struck down by fever, and had to return to Corrientes. His illness having left him almost without resources, he determined to come home and endeavour to interest the Geographical Society in the work. This he succeeded in doing, and though like M Douls, he is only twenty five, he is now making his second expedition to this unexplored region. - South American Journal 21st January 1888 "
