        The War in Egypt and the Soudan - An Episode in the History of the British Empire being a descriptive account of the scenes and events of that great drama, and sketches of the principal actors in it.

      Blackie and Son, Glasgow, 1887, Hardcover, Book Condition: Poor, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, 1st EditionThe above book number refers to the full four volume set of the history of the War in Egypt and Sudan. There is no marked publication date but the preface is dated 1887. These are former library (Military/ Militere Museum Library/ Biblioteek) and there are stamps throughout all four volumes to verify this. The books have been sadly stored. Their general condition is poor. All four volumes have much wear, marking and storage damage and light fading. All four are light worn at the right hand quarters of their front covers. This also affects the back cover left edge. There is much wear to all extremities, corners, the head and feet of all spines and their bindings. All have fragile front and end papers (the frontispage of Volume four is loose - it is included). All have a previous owner inscription (volume four directs the reader to the mention of a relation of the owner). The paper trim edges are tarnished. Annotations are scatter-gunned through the volumes. Despite their general fragility and disrepair, the generalised foxing and erratic, noisy binding, all pages are present and complete. This passionate, thorough, thrilling history is told on clear, stoic, brave, sound pages. They may be read with confidence and comfort. The illustration plates are thrilling and clear. Age and robustness are common friends throughout. fk Quantity Available: 1. Category: British History - Empire; Inventory No: ahyr.

        THE WOODLANDERS (FINE COPY of the First Edition in Three Volumes)

      London: Macmillan, 1887. Hardy, Thomas. THE WOODLANDERS. London: Macmillan and Co, 1887. First Edition, first impression, one of only 1,000 copies published on March 15th, 1887. Three volumes, 8vo, original dark green pebbled publisher's cloth (the secondary binding with the leaf of out-of-date ads from volume one excised by the binder). A FINE, fresh, and untouched example with only the most minor of blemishes. A few corners are just lightly bumped, the spine gilt of Vol. 2 is just slightly less bright than the other two volumes, and there is one tiny nick to the spine tip of Vol. 3. The inner hinges are tight and sound; there is virtually none of the usual foxing. Armorial bookplates belonging to a previous owner are affixed to each volume's front paste-down. This is not one of the first 860 sets originally bound in green buckram-grain cloth in March of 1887 but part of a secondary binding-up in similarly colored pebble-grain cloth of the remaining 140 copies in sheets (which most likely occurred sometime before September of 1887 when Macmillan released its follow-up one volume edition of 2,000 copies). The first bound group went primarily to the lending libraries of Mudie and W. H. Smith which accounts for the generally atrocious condition of the few badly marked survivors which are more to be pitied than purchased. Purdy pp. 54-57. Housed in a new, custom slipcase. . First Edition. Decorative Boards. Fine.

        Maps to Accompany the Military History of the Campaign of 1882 in Egypt

      London : printed by Dangerfield for H.M.S.O, 1887-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. 10 maps, plans, and sketches held in original slipcase. Includes small card that notes the maps. Slipcase bound in red cloth. Gilt lettering to one side of slipcase. Green silk ribbon, faded to ends. Shelfwear. Bending to both sides of slipcase. All maps present. Slight tanning to edges with minimal tears to fold. The Anglo-Egyptian War occurred in 1882 between Egyptian and Sudanese forces under Ahmed ‘Urabi and the United Kingdom. It ended a nationalist uprising against the khedive Tewfik Pasha and vastly expanded British influence over the country, at the expense of the French. The uprising began in 1878, when an Egyptian army officer, Ahmed ‘Urabi or Arabi Pasha, mutinied and initiated a coup against Tewfik Pasha, the Khedive of Egypt and Sudan, because of grievances over disparities in pay between Egyptians and Europeans, as well as other concerns. The war was short, resulting in only the Bombardment of Alexandria, Battle of Kafr-el-Dawwar, and the Battle of Tel el-Kebir. Several British military innovations where started during this conflict such as use of railroads, the telegraph and Army Post Office Corps, the forerunners of the Royal Engineers. British troops then occupied Egypt until the Angloâ€?"Egyptian Treaty of 1922 and Anglo-Egyptian treaty of 1936, giving gradual control back to the government of Egypt. Hopkins argues that Britain continued its occupation of Egypt after 1882 in order to guarantee British investments, "Britain had important interests to defend in Egypt and she was prepared to withdraw only if conditions guaranteeing the security of those interests were met - and they never were” (Hopkins, A. G. (July 1986). "The Victorians and Africa: A Reconsideration of the Occupation of Egypt, 1882". The Journal of African History 27)

        La photographie astronomique a l'observatoire de Paris et la carte du ciel. 5 original photos by Paul and Prosper Henry

      Gauthier-Villars, Paris 1887 - Mouchez, Ernest (1821-92). La photographie astronomique a l'Observatoire de Paris et la carte du ciel. 8vo. 107, [1]pp. 7 plates, including 4 with original photographs tipped to mounts. Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1887. 188 x 121 mm. Quarter morocco, marbled boards c. 1887, corners worn. Paper evenly toned, some light foxing in the plate leaves, one signature starting, otherwise very good. First Edition. In 1880, with the appearance of gelatin-silver bromide plates, "whole programs of astronomical photography were launched, with real scientific vigor and on a scale appropriate to the potential of the photographic medium. Heavenly bodies-stars, galaxies-are visible only by virtue of their emission of light, which can be faithfully recorded on a photographic plate, beyond even the capacity of the human eye. . . . From that moment the 'known' universe was no longer defined by limits of human vision, and, since light is only a small part of the totality of electromagnetic radiation, these limits were pushed further and further back as different wavelengths of light were discovered" (Frizel, p. 278). In 1884 Paul and Prosper Henry, astronomers at the Paris Observatory, adopted photography as a means of augmenting their ability to record stars of the third degree, which give off very little light. They had a special lens made for the purpose, which they used in conjunction with equatorial and refracting telescopes, the movements of which exactly compensate for the earth's rotation in order to prevent any blurring or deformation of the star image during the necessarily long exposure times. In 1887 Rear-Admiral Ernest Mouchez, an astronomer and cartographer, launched a plan to compile a photographic map of the sky, enlisting the help of over a dozen observatories using the Henry's photographic telescope. The present work describes this plan; it includes four striking original photographs of the moon, Saturn and Jupiter. Mouchez, who became director of the Paris Observatory in 1888, expected that a complete photographic star map would be produced by 1891; however, the project still remains incomplete and may never be realized. Frizel, ed., A New History of Photography, pp. 278-79; illustrating one of the plates from this book on p. 273. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Our National Game

      [New York:]: Liebenroth von Auw, 1887. Six Chromolithographs. 1 vols. Large 4to. Original publisher's cream colored cloth with gilt and black stamping. Spine shows moderate wear. The pictorial title page depicts a standing baseball team surrounding a seated coach, surmounted by patriotic motifs and above a design of crossed bats and equipment. The other illustrations are skillfully rendered field level scenes of a Wild Pitch, Fly Ball, Foul Ball, a runner Caught between Bases, and Home Run -- each with extremely interesting details of uniforms, equipment, positions, etc.A rare, early, large format "coffee-table" book on the sport, which, by this time, had already become the "national game". Interestingly, the publisher of this rarity, Liebenroth & Von Auw, was a New York firm which specialized in German-language publications targeting the immigrant community: schoolbooks, handwriting manuals, and notably, a hymnal for the Dutch-Reformed Lutheran Church. The latest of their publications recorded in OCLC is 1886 - but there is no recorded copy in any American library of this important pictorial record of baseball as it was played in the 1880's.

        THE BAR-TENDER';S GUIDE OR HOW TO MIX ALL KINDS OF PLAIN AND FANCY DRINKS

      New York: Dick & Fitzgerald Publishers, 1887. New and Enlarged Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good binding. First published in 1862, Jerry Thomas's Bar-Tender's Guide (sometimes known as The Bon-Vivant's Companion) is the seminal work on cocktails, and the first drinks book published in the United States. Thomas codified the oral tradition of recipes from the earliest days of cocktails, laying down principles for concocting mixed drinks of all categories. Thomas Guide was updated several times to include new drinks. All of the editions contain the recipe for his Blue Blazer, his signature drink -- not for the novice, it involves setting whiskey ablaze and passing it between two glasses, making a continuous arc of flame [see p. 51 -- he suggests practicing for a time with cold water!]. 130 + [14] ad pp. In publisher's cloth which has been rebacked with the original spine with titling laid down. Very Good binding.
