And will you pay a higher rate than of yore (for reasons explainable when I see you) if you accept it? And will you crowd it into the March No.?

        La photographie astronomique. Presentation copy

      Paris, 1887. Paris, 1887. <p>Mouchez, Ernest (1821-92). La photographie astronomique a l&#39;Observatoire de Paris et la carte du ciel. Extracted in part from the Bureau des Longitudes&#39; Annuaire pour l&#39;an 1887. 8vo. 107, [1]pp. 7 plates, including 4 with original photographs tipped to mounts, each with printed tissue guard. Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1887. 188 x 121 mm. Marbled boards c. 1887. Paper evenly toned, some light foxing in the plate leaves, otherwise very good. </p><p>Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front flyleaf: "A Monsieur Moru, procurer general a , Souvenir bien affectueux, E. Mouchez." </p><p>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 &#39;known&#39; 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&#39;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&#39;s photographic telescope. The present work describes this plan; it includes four striking original photographs of the moon, Saturn, Jupiter and the Hercules Cluster. 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.

        New Meiji Map of Tokyo

      Koshodo. Koshodo. Pocket map. Copper engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 28.6" x 20.7". This colorful tourist map of Tokyo and Yokohama is a highly detailed document of the city and its environs in the Meiji period. The city is shown divided into districts, and roads, rivers, and railroads are all labeled. Important buildings are colored in red, including the Imperial Palace at the map&#39;s center. The map is surrounded by 39 vignettes illustrating these significant buildings and other places around the city. Municipalities within the city proper are labeled, and rice farms can be seen in the rural districts, also labeled, outside the main city. The map has a substantial index, including police stations, ship soundings, monasteries, temples, and shrines. It also includes an inset map of the city of Yokohama and numerous information tables. The map is labeled with the publication date of February 3, 1887. It is in very good condition with original orange paper boards still attached, if slightly worn. Narrow margins as issued with some wear to edges, but overall bright color and no foxing or staining. Like many Japanese maps from the Meiji period, this map incorporates western cartographic elements, such as the large compass rose, into the traditional Japanese cartographic style. The map&#39;s intention for tourist use speaks to the gradual modernization that occurred in Japan during this era.

        A Travers Paris

      Paris: Librairie Plon. Paris: Librairie Plon. First Edition. Decorated Cloth. Very Good Plus. N.d., 1887. Oblong, 23 by 27 cm. 48 pp. A tour of the streets of Paris and the various contretemps encountered, most involving in some way horses, whether working or sporting horses. Thus we encounter the collision of horses with modern technology, from bicycles to electrified trams. The humor is somewhat dry and ironic. While one here can enjoy a glimpse of the pre-automobile city, there is enough that is recognization in the various accidents, activities, pretensions, and confusion that one might nod in recognition of many of Crafty&#39;s remarks. Binding is near mint in terms of the brightness of the cloth and imagery. Light foxing in early leaves, then only occasionally. Most leaves are clean. Tiny pinprick hole on FFEP where there is the remnants of a seller&#39;s small price tag.

        War and Peace

      London: Vizetelly & Co, 1887. London: Vizetelly & Co, 1887. First English language edition. First English translation, preceding the American translation by Clara Bell published by Gottsberger. This copy mixed, with books one and two first printings and the third book a second printing (stated "Second Edition" on title page). Bound in the original publisher&#39;s green cloth stamped in blue and red. The first book recased, book two with the hinges repaired and the third book untouched. All three volumes in uniform condition and with the bookplate of Alethea Rianette Anne Blackett (née? Scott) and an ornithological bookplate initialled SC on front endpapers of each vol. Spines darkened and the titling a bit obscure, but complete and in relatively good order for such a rare thing. Conservatively estimated 10-20 times as rare as the American edition, only this copy found in the auction record, no matter how far back you look. And, our way to apologize for the condition and the mixed issue is to price this the same as the American edition and let someone have the true first for no premium.& & The author&#39;;s epic novel of the Napoleonic Wars, given a human face through the poignant impact it has on several interrelated characters. A story of love and tradition amidst a crumbling society and a radically changing world. A novel brimming with enlightenment and modern theories. Virginia Woolf wrote: "There remains the greatest of all novelists&mdash;for what else can we call the author of War and Peace? . . . Even in a translation we feel that we have been set on a mountain-top and had a telescope put into our hands. Everything is astonishingly clear and absolutely sharp." Undoubtedly a masterpiece of world literature, and in our opinion, the greatest work from the Russian literary canon.

        White cockades: an incident of the "Forty-five

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1887. New York: Charles Scribner&#39;s Sons, 1887. Hardcover. 216p., backlist, frontis-piece, first edition (date on title page and copyright page match, no notice of later printings), lightly-penciled gift inscription and ownership signature on first free endpaper and lightly-shelfworn pictorial olive cloth printed in red, white and gilt, some rubbing and wear to top edgestain. A very good example of this young adult novel of the 1745 Jacobite uprising in Scotland. James J. Gifford has called Stevenson "The man who might well be styled the first modern American gay author." Born in New Jersey, he wrote boys&#39; adventure novels in the style of Horatio Algier before penning two overtly homosexual books under the pen name Xavier Mayne: "Imre: a Memorandum" in 1906 and "The Intersexes" in 1908. In "The Intersexes," he notes that "White Cockades" contained a "half hinted" erotic relationship between Bonnie Prince Charlie and a rural youth. By his own description, thus, "White Cockades" is the first homoerotically themed novel by this foundational figure in American gay fiction. Young 3640
