        [Green-throated Cazique] Delattria Viridipallens

      [London: by the Author, 1887. Hand-coloured lithograph by Hullmandel & Walton, printed by the Mintern brothers. With later professional hand colouring. Wove paper. In excellent condition. A beautiful image from 'A Monograph of the Trochilidae or Family of Humming-Birds', John Gould's 'masterpiece, [which]... must ever remain a feast of beauty and a source of wonder... an incomparable catalogue and compendium of beauty' ('Fine Bird Books'). 'There is no one appreciative of the beauties of nature who will not recall... with delight the time when a live humming-bird first met his gaze. The suddenness of the apparition, even when expected, and its brief duration, are alone enough to fix the fluttering vision on the mind's eye.... The beautiful nests of humming-birds... will be found on examination to be very solidly and tenaciously built, though the materials are generally of the slightest - cotton-wool or some vegetable down and spider's webs' (Alfred Newton in ' The Encyclopedia Britannica 1911, vol. 13, p.887). The Hummingbird family includes members that are the smallest birds in the world. The largest measures no more than 8 1/2 inches and the smallest 2 3/8 inches in length. They are confined to the American continent and its islands, but are wide ranging within this limitation, with over 400 different species covering an area from the fuchias of Tierra del Fuego in the south to the althaea bushes of Toronto gardens in the north. The present image is from the work of which Gould himself was most proud. Hummingbirds remained a fascination for him throughout his professional life, as evidenced by his collection of 1500 mounted specimens, which were exhibited in the Royal Zoological Gardens in Regent's Park, London, in 1851 as part of the festivities surrounding the Great Exhibition. The exhibit proved a great success, with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert numbering among the 75,000 visitors. Cf. Anker 177; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p.101; cf. Nissen IVB 380; cf. Sauer 16 & 29; cf. Wood p. 365; cf. Zimmer p. 258.

        Rapport van de ingenieurs der 2de klasse van de marine H. Cop en J.S. van Veen, betreffende hunne reis door Engeland tot het bezoeken van eenige marine- en particuliere etablissementen van scheepsbouw in 1885. [Amsterdam and Hellevoetsluis, December 1885]. Small folio (33.5 x 21.5 cm). With 5 numbered lithographed folding plates showing plans of ships, the first a very large lithographed plan of the Japanese cruiser "Naniwa-Kan" built by the firm Armstrong, Mitchell & Co (on 2 sheets, measuring ca. 32 x 135 cm as assembled). Original half black cloth, printed paper sides with the printed letter "F.", word "Geheim" (secret) and "No." with a stamped "8" (apparently meaning this is copy number 8 of a very small press-run).

      NCC (1 copy); WorldCat (same copy); not in Cat. NHSM. Second copy located of a report by the two marine engineers Cop and Van Veen, on their trip inspecting various types of cruisers at the marine department of the International Inventions Exhibitions at London, and various shipyards including that of the well-known Newcastle-based firm Armstrong, Mitchell & Co. An introduction to the trip is followed by more information on cruiser ships in general and detailed information on various types of cruiser and individual cruisers, including the Japanese cruisers "Naniwa-Kan" and "Takachiho-Kan" and the torpedo cruisers "Scout" and "Fearless".The trip and its report was made by the marine engineer H. Cop, who was to be appointed professor of naval architecture at the Polytechnic School in Delft in 1887, and the marine engineer Jacobus Simon van Veen (1859-1935), who published several technical works and wrote more polemical articles on naval policy.This copy comes from the "Bureau van den Inspecteur o.d. stoomvaartdienst" (office of the inspector for steamshipping). Text with some minor foxing. Very good copy.

        Army Memories

      New York: Koch, Sons, & Co, 1887. Folio. (18 15/16 x 16 3/4 inches). Mounted on guards throughout. 1p. 'Descriptive Index' printed in red and blue on card (verso blank), 12 mounted tinted (2) or chromo-lithographed (10) plates, the first plate with an integral title on a plain card mount, the 11 others with card mounts decorated with tinted lithographic vignettes, all 12 of the mounts with thin small format paper labels laid onto the verso, each label printed in blue with the plate number, title, and sub-title or related text. Expertly bound to style in deep purple half morocco over original dark red cloth-covered boards, the upper cover with a gilt and black centrally-placed semi-relief vignette incorporating the title, red cloth ties, white pattern paper endpapers Very rare: one of the great American chromolithographically illustrated works. Only five copies are recorded by OCLC, none outside the United States. Harlow, who was born in Maine, lived in Boston and was both an etcher and painter. His subjects (unlike the present series) were usually landscapes, and he provided the colour lithographer Louis Prang with a stream of watercolour views of New England that were used in his illustrated works. The present series demonstrate Koch's mastery of both the technical aspects of printing as well as the aesthetic problems presented in the design of the book. The subjects include generic views of army life as well as portraits of specific individuals: Grant at Vicksburg with Generals Sherman, Logan and McPherson; and a second portrait of General Sherman on horseback at the outset of his armies' march to the sea. OCLC 30690206 (5 copies).

        Lady Noel Byron and the Leighs: some authentic records of certain circumstances in the lives of Augusta Leigh, and others of her family, that concerned Anna Isabella, Lady Byron, in the course of forty years after her separation. [Edited by Ralph Gordon Noel Milbanke, Earl of Lovelace.] Strictly Private.

      Printed for the descendants of Lord & Lady Byron, by William Clowes & Sons. 1887 - FIRST EDITION. Half title/limitation leaf; occasional neat pencil notes & underlining. Uncut in orig. pale blue boards, drab spine, paper label; spine a little darkened & hinges a little weak. Wise (Byron) pp111-112. 36 copies printed, of which this is number 2. Inscribed on half title, ?John C. Fox, Goring on Thames. Given to me by Mary Countess of Lovelace, 14 September 1922?, and with a further inscription beneath: ?Given to C. Draper by Miss Elsie Fox 1961? This exceedingly scarce piece of Byroniana (Wise describes it as ?hopelessly unobtainable?, noting that ?the larger proportion? of the 36 printed copies were destroyed) belonged, until 1922, to Mary Caroline, Countess of Lovelace. She was married to Ralph Gordon Noel Milbanke, son of William King-Noel, 1st Earl of Lovelace, and Ada Lovelace, Lord Byron?s only legitimate daughter. It was given by the Countess of Lovelace to James C. Fox, the noted Byron scholar, and subsequently passed to his daughter, Elsie, who in turn gave it to C. Draper in 1961. A brief letter, paper-clipped on to the leading f.e.p. advises ?Christie?, i.e. C. Draper, that ?as she [Elsie Fox] gave you the book some years ago it is still yours to do with it as you like best.? Draper had evidently offered to return the book to the Fox family following the death of Elsie, and this note from Mary Theophilus, Elsie?s sister, assures him the book remains his. Milbanke?s work forms an attempt to debunk the myths surrounding his grandmother Lady Byron and her sister-in-law Augusta Leigh, and show that their relationship remained one of mutual trust and cordiality.

Nice; Translated in June 1887 by Andrew Lang, printed November 1887. From the introduction of the famous medieval French chantefable: " There is nothing in artistic poetry quite akin to "Aucassin and Nicolette". By a rare piece of good fortune the one manuscript of the Song-Story has escaped those waves of time, which have wrecked the bark of Menander, and left of Sappho but a few floating fragments. " .

        IL FABBRO MUNECHIKA FORGIA LA SPADA PER L' IMPERATORE  ICHIJO  CON LUI INARI  CUSTODE DEI FABBRI

      1887 Silografia originale impressa a colori dell'epoca, all'angolo superiore destro edicole con inscrizioni giapponesi  a indicare editore e titolo di provenienza all'angolo inferiore sinistro firma e sigillo dell'autore. Gekko, artista giapponese, ha iniziato la sua carriera come    autodidatta , noto come pittore e designer ha vinto numerosi premi nazionali e internazionali, considerato uno tra i  primi artisti giapponesi a conquistare un pubblico internazionale. Tra i maggiori esponenti dello stile Ukiyo - e, " mondo fluttuante " o " mondo della sofferenza" , espressione artistica della cultura giovane ed impetuosa giapponese che fiorì nella città di Edo ( oggi Tokyo), Osaka e Kyoto. Questa tecnica artistica divenne molto popolare a Edo durante la seconda metà del XVII secolo, a partire dalle opere monocromatiche di Hishikawa Moronobu ( 1670 circa ), Utamaro, Hokusai, Hiroshige e Sharaku furono gli artisti più importanti di questo periodo. In seguito alla Restaurazione Meiji del 1868 il Giappone si aprì alle importazioni dall'Occidente, tra cui la fotografia e le tecniche di stampa. I colori vegetali e naturali usati negli Ukiyo - e vennero sostituiti da tinture chimiche all'anilina, importate dalla Germania.

        MOUCHEZ (Ernest)

      1887 1183 - Paris, Gauthier-Villars, 1887, in-8, 107 pages, 7 planches, 3 figures dans le texte, broché, Première édition de cet ouvrage très rare, extrait en partie de l'Annuaire pour l'an 1887 publié par le Bureau des Longitudes. Elle est ornée de 3 planches en héliogravure, dont une dépliante, et de 4 photographies originales contrecollées sous serpentes légendées. Tandis que l'Observatoire de Meudon poursuivait, à la suite de Janssen, l'aventure de la photographie du soleil, Mouchez et les frères Henry entreprirent, à l'Observatoire de Paris, un état photographique du ciel. Le but était d'en dresser une carte ; pour cela, ils firent construire à grands frais un télescope équatorial photographique de 33 cm d'ouverture et de 3,43 m de distance focale. On peut le voir représenté ici sur la figure de la p. 29. La publication de cet ouvrage permit à l'équipe de l'Observatoire de présenter leur projet avec quelques illustrations dont certaines sont les premières représentations photographiques de certaines parties du ciel. Cette publication permit de soutenir, avec un enthousiasme extraordinaire, le projet d'une "carte internationale du ciel" (cf. Lécuyer, p. 406 et suiv.). DSB IX, 552. Poggendorff, IV, 1034.

        A Rare 1887 Photographic Card from Miller, D.T. With Town Directory on Verso

      J.N. Templeman [1887]. 6 3/4" x 4" Photograph by J.N. Templeman of the town of Miller, Dakota Territory Business Directory: Leading Firms of Miller, Dakota. Louis Carroll Wade's study, small-Town Survival on the Great Plains: Miller, Dakota Territory, in the 1880's shows how the boom from the late 1870's to the mid-1800's led to the Dakota Territory's population nearly tripled. The key to the town of Miller's rise to the ascendancy in Hand County was its being built in close proximity to the Dakota Central Railrway (a branch of the Chicago and Northwestern) as the mIller family came from Iowa in late 1881 and began to invest not only in agriculture but laid out tht town with Broadway being the widest street. They were involved in many of the main businesses in the town (as noted on the directory). Although these businesses are not always named in Wade's work G.H. Carroll's business is noted as Land and Farm Loads (see p. 330) the Vanderbilt Hotel with room for 200 guest (Ibid), the Hand County Bank (see p. 339), J.W. Coquillette (see p. 344), in 1886 J. Linn Roll built an opera house capable of seating 500 people (see p. 339) The fires that were endemic to frontier towns also hit Miller but fortunately only one store was destroyed. Then sunk an artesian well which provided not only ample water for the fire department but also its warmth was welcomed for laundry and bathing. Several of the businesses are unknown in the later Miller directories.

        THE GAME OF LOGIC

      1887 - London: Macmillan and Co., 1887. 2 pp undated ads. Original red cloth. First Published Edition. This Lewis Carroll book combines the two main thrusts of the author's work: books for children, and books on mathematics. It contains logic puzzles, still popular today, in which various groups are defined, and then inferences must be made or disproved about the groups. One example is, what can be deduced from: "No old Jews are fat millers" plus "All my friends are old millers." As an aid to visualize these concepts, Dodgson provided a game board with spatial areas, and colored counters to place in such areas. Dodgson's text was geared toward making the concepts understandable for small children. However, it is easy to see why the book was an utter failure in that regard: most adults, let alone children, would have difficulty understanding these "games."~The actual first edition of this book was published in (and is dated) 1886; however, Dodgson was extremely dissatisfied with the visual quality of this book, so he quashed the first edition before it was issued (only a few copies of it are known), and had it replaced with this printing in 1887 (so dated). As usual, Dodgson hid the name of the dedicatee in an acrostic: in this case it was Climene Mary Holiday, decipherable from the second letter of each line of verse.~In addition to the book, game-playing accoutrements were also provided (and are present here): (1) a game board on heavy card stock (reproduced as the book's frontispiece), on the reverse of which is the same "title page" as in the book; (2) seven of the nine original "counters," three grey and four pink; and (3) the original envelope. (This copy's game board and envelope are dated 1887, like the book; some copies have a game board and/or envelope dated 1886, since these were re-used from the suppressed edition.)~This copy is in near-fine condition (spine slightly darkened, but scarcely any wear). The game board is near-fine (one tiny corner chipped, a little faint foxing), and the envelope is good-to-very good (flap lacking, one tear, some foxing). Williams Madan & Green 196.
