The present edition was published as number 56 in the series "Bibliothèque orientale Elzévirienne".Robert Needham Cust (1821-1909), a prolific orientalist working for the East India Company, devoted the last decades of his life to the study of languages, publishing a great many learned books, articles and reviews.Slightly browned, the wrapper more severely, but still in good condition with a few pencil marks.

Baring Gould. Gould prefaces the book with an examination of where the legends surrounding the cross might have come from including Viking mythology as well as eastern Asian folklore. Ashton breaks down the legend itself examining the story of the cross' origin with Adam and Seth in the Garden of Eden, to becoming the cross upon which Jesus Christ was crucified, and then found by the mother of Constantine through visions and worshipped as a Holy Relic that had supernatural power. The 15th century legend depicts views from its era with its types of miracles including raising people from the dead, healing the sick, and causing "black people to become white."This 1887 first edition includes all 64 woodcut illustrations, 9 illustrations by Ashton in his introduction, and an illustrated binding with clasps!Item number: #10803Price: $750ASHTON, John; GOULD, S.

(4), IV, 327, (1) pp ¶ Rare first Russian translation of Grant Allen's classic biography on Charles Darwin, printed only two years after the original english publication (1885). Although Darwin's first biographies in Russia appeared during his lifetime, this edition is widely considered to be a standard introduction to the life and work of one of the greatest scientists of the time.A part of the English Worthies series, the original English version of Charles Darwin's biography was written by the Canadian scientist and one of the main popularizers of Darwin's scientific merit Grant Allen (1848-1899). Two years later, the Russian military officer and agricultural scientist Alexander Engelhardt (1832-1893) issued the first Russian translation of the book. The edition consists of two sections. The first section covers Darwin's biography from his early years and the main scientific accomplishments to the last days of his life. The second section features the Russian translation of Darwin's Essay on Instincts, which the author omitted from the 7th chapter of On the Origins of Species (1859). The English version of the Essay was published posthumously in Mental Evolution in Animals (1883) by the founder of the comparative psychology George John Romanes' (1848-1894) with whom Darwin collaborated on the study of the instincts. This translation of the Essay is likely to be one of its first appearances in Russian print.

Tripp, Charles B.; Bransby Cooper Pentz (photographer)]
Pentz [1887], York, Pa. Cabinet card (albumen photographic print mounted on card), approximately 6 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches. Stamp of photographer and inscription and signature of subject on verso, in his foot. Light wear, near fine. Cabinet-card portrait of Charles Tripp, the "Armless Wonder," inscribed and signed by him, evidently during a tour in York, Pennsylvania, where the photograph was taken. Charles Broton Tripp (1855-1930) was one of the great human marvels of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Born without arms, Tripp taught himself at a young age how to dress, eat, shave, write, and perform a variety of other tasks with his feet. He had become notedfor his calligraphy and woodworking skills when he left home for New York City at the age of 17 to seek employment with P. T. Barnum. Barnum hired him during their first meeting, and Tripp would perform for the circuses of Barnum, Bailey, and the Ringling Brothers for the next 35 years, and later for smaller carnivals.Throughout his career, Tripp inscribed and sold cabinet cards and postcards printed with his portrait, in which he typically seen posingina fine suit,surrounded by instruments and products of his trade. The present photograph shows him carving a piece of wood and exhibiting specimens of his calligraphy and a paper doll he had created, presumably with the pair of shears lying in front of it. The photo was taken at the Pentz studio of York, Pennsylvania, and bears the following inscription in Tripp’s foot: "Charles B. Tripp. Woodstock, Ontario Age 32 y’s.

SHELLEY. MARY. -- Henry. Richard.
Gaiety Theatre. London. No date. 1887. Theatre programme. 8pp. (7.5 x 5.5 inches). Printed in blue on white paper. Contains a cast list, synopsis and adverts printed on two sheets, folded and one loosely inserted to the other, as issued. A couple of light creases. Some loss to the top of the rear panel and a closed tear to the top of the front where is has been roughly opened, otherwise a very good example of this rare playbill. --- The production, a burlesque operetta by Henry Richard and based on Mary Shelley's novel, opened at the Gaiety Theatre in London on 24th December 1887, and was closed a week later. The cast included Nellie Farren as Dr. Frankenstein and Fred Leslie as the monster who is in touch with his feminine side. Possibly well ahead of it's time (Rocky Horror Show anybody?) the Victorian audiences weren't impressed and found the piece too feminist in tone. In addition, the theatre going public was annoyed at George Edwardes, who, in a bid to raise more revenue, had increased the number of stalls, at the expense of the cheaper, and popular 'Pit' area.

Harper's Weekly 1887 Jan.-Dec bound volume Nast Remington . This incredible antique Harpers Weekly bound book is a rare find. Every issue for the year of 1887. The binding on the book is tattered and does have a couple rips. There also has been mold but only on the bound hard edges of the book. Overall its in pretty darn good shape considering how old it is. This yearly bound Harpers Weekly came from what appears to be a Library in Emporia , Kansas. State Normal School Library and it also states there should be a fine of 10 cents for every 2 weeks its over due. This book as i stated earlier is a great addition to collectors of books as well historical memorabilia.

George Guieysse [1869-1889]
1887-89. George Guieysse [1869-1889] was a talented linguist and philologist who shot himself shortly after the publication of his sole publication, 'Essai sur L'argot' co authored with the writer, Marcel Schwob. In a published eulogy [included with this archive], Michel Breal, father to August, a close friend of George's, wrote of George having suffered a fall at the age of thirteen which left him unconsicous and with subsequent memory loss and a legacy of weakened nervous system. Certainly, in one his letters here George writes of continuing memory loss, something like a fugue state, so the fall may indeed have left a legacy of some lasting neurological disorder. He was certainly a precocious scholar, entering into the field of linguistics at the age of sixteen under Abel Bergaigne [1838-1888, leading Orientalist scholar and Professor of Sanskrit]. He had also studied under the great linguist, Ferdinand de Saussure. What emerges from the public record of of those who knew and were impressed by his abilities is a great sense of loss to the academic world. In his tragically short life, George had travelled to England and Algeria and planned a trip to the Far East to study the ancient civilisation of Cambodia and the surrounding region. The archive consists of some 40 or so letters to his friend, Auguste Breal [later to become an art critic and painter] are usually undated but must be c. 1887/89. Mainly in very good condition, one or two with a bit of insect damage but the sense remains, in French, of course but with occasional English interpolation, and in a legible hand,. … [Click Below for Full Description]

WHITMAN, Walt
Walter Scott, London, 1887. Second English edition, first issue. Newly revised by the author, with fresh preface and additional note. The Camelot Series. 12mo. [i-v] vi-x [xi-xii] [13] 14-312 [8]pp. (advertisements at the rear). Publisher's flexible full red leather, lettered in gilt, all edges gilt. Front joint professionally repaired with some residual wear at both joints and edges, rear free endpaper is detached and chipped at the edges, only good. An interesting Inscription on the half-title to a fellow Whitman: "To Mr. Whitman of Philadelphia from Walt Whitman, June 1887." We like to speculate the playful poet inscribed the book to himself but there's no real proof. Nevertheless an early and interesting copy. Neither *BAL* or *Myerson* reference this binding. *BAL* specifies three primary bindings including red cloth, but red leather is not among them, and this is clearly a publisher's binding. Combined with the early inscription (the book was published in early June), this might be a previous unrecorded author's copy, or author's presentation issue. The fragile nature of the binding might account for it being unrecorded. *Myerson* A11.2.a1; *BAL* 21428. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

HOMEOPATHY. MEDICINE. Pizá Rosselló, Jaime
Madrid:, 1887. FIFTH EDITION of the booklet (1st ed. 1864. All editions are extremely rare).. Octavo: . Bound in a contemporary wallet binding, modified to hold medicine. A rare, complete set comprising a Spanish homeopathy handbook for families together with homeopathic remedies prepared by the Solominos pharmacy of Madrid, the first homeopathic pharmacy in Spain. A fascinating witness to the diffusion and implementation of Hahnemann's theories. Inside the front board there is a carrier for 23 glass vials. A separate, related box with a wooden carrier for 45 additional vials is included. Almost all of the small glass vials still contain homeopathic substances. The inventor of homeopathic theory was the German doctor Samuel Hahnemann (1756-1843), who, according to the principle of 'similia similibus curantur' held that the agent that causes an ailment should be administered, in heavily diluted form, to patients who suffered from that ailment. Homeopathy did not take root on a large scale in Spain, where there were very few homeopathic doctors or pharmacists. Among the pharmacists who did prepare homeopathic medicines was Cesáreo Martín Somolinos (1827-1878), who set up his shop at 26 Calle Infantas in Madrid. Somolinos also made up and sold pocket homeopathic kits of the kind offered here, some of which are preserved in the Museo de La Farmacia Hispana in Madrid. The author of the manual, Jaime Pizá Rosselló. was director and chief pharmacist of the Somolinos pharmacy.

Interesting work discussing the theory that the Iroquois chief and Indian missionary Eleazer Williams (ca. 1789-1858) was really the lost Dauphin Louis XVII. It was written by Augusta de Grasse Stevens (1852-1894), novelist and correspondent of various New York newspapers.The Canadian born Eleazar Williams was the son of a St. Regis Mohawk Indian, Thomas Williams, and his wife, Mary Ann Kenewatsenri. He served as a missionary of the Episcopal Church to the Oneida Indians. ''The Indians eventually repudiated his leadership, however, and as early as 1839 Williams began his pretensions that he was the Lost Dauphin of France, Louis XVIII. ... Williams promised his friends many royal favors when his wrong had been righted; but, doomed to defeat, he died in poverty and obscurity at Hogansburg, NY'' (Dictionary of Wisconsin History).Lacking half-title but otherwise in good condition.

Women's Social History] [Women in Business] Mary Johnson
[Northeastern US], 1887. Quarter sheep over marbled boards measuring 6 x 7.5 inches. Comprised of 63 pages in the single hand of Mary Johnson, documenting the 1881 financials of her father's estate after his death as well as her own experiences living as a single woman after his demise, beginning 1887. The result is a rich document evidencing the knowledge of women as well as their unpaid labour as they ran the households and estates of their families. Such a manuscript also records the emotional toll such women experienced. For five pages, Mary Johnson records the expenses owed and the money gained in her father Josiah Johnson's estate following his death. The records are neatly and precisely maintained, as Mary documents taxes for schools and roads alongside wages for workers on the family's farm. Money made is also present -- for butter, milk, and other goods being sold to neighbors. But the bulk of the book gives us insight more directly to Mary herself. Beginning her journal in 1887, she writes about continued business, social visits, and the continued labor she performs to keep her family afloat. Some days, like January 8, 1887, she balances business and family, while making little time for self care: "I went up to Adams Center to see about my Taxes. Mr. Foster Dealing is the collector. The hard cold I had the forepart of the week still hangs to me. Yesterday my head ached.Mother returned from Greens Settlement where she had been visiting."

1887. Notre blog : https://librairie-trois-plumes.blogspot.fr/ Notre mail : benoit@troisplumes.fr [Manuscrit] Emile Zola & Léon Hennique, Jacques Damour. [1885-1887]. 28 feuillets in-4 (31*23cm environ). Exceptionnel manuscrit inédit complet de la pièce Jacques Damour, tirée de la nouvelle éponyme d'Emile Zola publiée en 1880. L'histoire raconte le retour d'un déporté à Nouméa suite à la Commune, qui apprend que sa femme, le croyant mort, s'est remariée avec le boucher Sagnard. L'histoire a retenu, jusqu'à présent, que Léon Hennique était l'unique auteur de l'adaptation théâtrale, refusée à l'Odéon par Porel, et qui fut jouée au Théâtre Libre d'Antoine, lors de la première soirée de celui-ci le 30 mars 1887. La pièce fut un succès, probablement accentué par les trois autres pièces de la soirée reçues plus froidement. Finalement, la pièce fut montée à l'Odéon pour la saison 1887 et y fut jouée à partir du 22 septembre 1887. Elle est jouée à Bruxelles, interdite à Constantinople (officiellement car parlant de la Commune mais probablement à cause de Zola. Elle a été éditée chez Charpentier dès 1887. On sait qu'à l'époque des soirées de Médan, il y a eu des tentatives de collaboration théâtrale entre Zola et Hennique. Aucune n'a abouti ni à cette époque.

CHAGALL, MARC
CHAGALL, MARC. (1887-1985). Russian-born, French artist known for his highly personal, fantastical imagery inspired by Russian-Jewish folk themes and village life.

In 1960, Chagall began work on a set of 12 stained glass windows for the Abbell Synagogue at the Hadassah University Medical Center depicting the twelve tribes of Israel through their traditional symbols as well as animals, flowers, trees, and architecture. After their creation in his Cote d'Azur studio, the windows were exhibited at the Louvre in Paris and New York's MoMA before their installation in Jerusalem in February 1962.
