The business prospered and grew, and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1914.

        The Brownies: Their Book

      New York: The Century Company, 1887. xii+144 pages Illustrated throughout. Quarto (10 3/4" x 8 1/2") bound in original glazed pictorial quarter morocco slipcase. boards in original pictorial jacket with . First edition, first state, with the De Vinne Press seal immediately below the copyright notice.The Brownies is a series of publications by Canadian illustrator and author Palmer Cox, based on names and elements from English traditional mythology and Scottish stories told to Cox by his grandmother. Illustrations with verse aimed at children, The Brownies was published in magazines and books during the late 19th century and early 20th century. Not unlike fairies and goblins, Brownies are imaginary little sprites, who are supposed to delight in harmless pranks and helpful deeds. Never allowing themselves to be seen by mortal eyes, they are male, drawn to represent many professions and nationalities, all mischievous members of the fairy world whose principal attribute is helping with chores while a family sleeps. The Brownie characters became famous in their day, and at the peak of their popularity were a pioneering name brand within merchandising. The first appearances of Brownie characters in a print publication took place in 1879, but not until the February, 1881 issue of Wide Awake magazine were the creatures printed in their final form. The first proper story, The Brownies' Ride, appeared in the February 1883 issue of the children's periodical St. Nicholas Magazine. Published in 1899, The Brownies Abroad is considered the first Brownie comic strip, though it didn't utilize speech balloons until the publication The Brownie Clown of Brownie Town of 1908. From 1903, The Browniesappeared as a newspaper Sunday strip for several years. The first compilation, The Brownies, Their Book, was published in 1887, followed by 16 books in the series until the last in 1918.Condition:Rubbing to board and spine extremities; marginal dampstaining through majority of leaves, ownership inscription. Dust jacket, dampstaining, some wrinkling and creasing, few small chips a better than good copy in scarce like jacket. Quarter morocco slipcase with rubbing to raised spine bands else very good to fine.

Nel 1887 il Genio Civile di Roma commissionò ai D'Alessandri una campagna fotografica destinata a documentare lo stato del fiume Tevere prima e dopo la costruzione degli argini, promossa dal piano regolatore del 1883: questa raccolta di albumine rappresenta un'opera di fondamentale valore per la conservazione della memoria storica romana, ovvero una delle rarissime documentazioni visive della Roma ottocentesca, oggi altrimenti perduta. Il ruolo centrale di queste albumine per la storia della Capitale venne messo in luce nella grande Mostra di fotografia romana curata da Silvio Negro, tenutasi nel 1956. Composto complessivamente da 96 fotografie, questo straordinario esemplare costituisce una delle raccolte più complete fra le pochissime conosciute (il Museo di Roma possiede una raccolta di 90 fotografie).

        The History of Ballarat, from the first Pastoral Settlement to the present Time ... Second Edition: With Plans, Illustrations, and original Documents.

      8vo. Original blue-green pictorial cloth blocked in dark green and gold; pp. xx, 362, very large folding chromolithographic birds-eye view, large folding colour lithographic plan, ten facsimiles and 20 lithographic plates (6 tinted), many different historiated initials comprising mostly mining scenes; hinges reinforced; large plate and plan with repaired, tears; evenly a little browned, as usual, otherwise very clean and fresh; provenance: presentation plate, printed in Ballarat for Mr James Oddie, 'Ballarat's Pioneer Digger,' inside front cover. Substantially enlarged, lavishly illustrated edition of a monograph on all aspects of the short history and rapid modernization of Ballarat, established just half a century before the publication of this book. This work tells us everything knowable about the town, the mining industry, architecture, violent upheavals (including the Eureka Stockade Riots), illustrates a Chinese restaurant, reprints old documents and proclamations. Provenance: James Oddie (1824-1911) was a Ballarat pioneer who emigrated in 1849 from England. 'James conducted a foundry in Geelong until August 1851 when gold fever lured him to Buninyong. On 1 September he moved to Golden Point, Ballarat, where as a diggers' representative he protested against the miners' licences. He joined the rushes to Mount Alexander and Bendigo and after varying luck opened a store in 1853 at Smythesdale, where he was among the first to oppose the £50 store licence. He was probably the author of the pamphlet, Laughing a Crime (Melbourne, 1853). In 1854 he moved his store near the Eureka stockade, attended many protest meetings and witnessed what he described as 'the massacre of innocent diggers'. A friend and admirer of Peter Lalor, he later erected his statue at the cost of £2200 in the main street of Ballarat' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). He expanded his local business empire and became first chairman of the Ballarat Municipal Council in 1856-58, remaining true to his liberal and democratic convictions.

The illustration shows the booth. Size: 18 x 8 inches. two soft horizontal fold, but in fine condition. Rare wall bill of a little known exhibitor, touring northern Germany in the late 1880s. The ?popular museum? as Sühring calls his exhibition display, consisted of a large variety of mechanised wax-works of historical, contemporary or mythical characters, scenes and figures: An indian snake charmer, the innocent girl at the pillory, little red riding hood?s encouter with the wolf in the forests, a scene from the persecution of jews in czarist Russia, a fire in North American virgin forests, the northpol expedition of the Swedish explorer Nordenskjöld including the hunt for polar bears and whales and more. Most of the displays appear to involve automatic motions, as for example: ?Mademoiselle Blanche, the world famous dancer of the Paris opera, here shown with natural motions of her breasts?.

A fine copy. ----Dibner Heralds of Science 71; See PMM 377; Norman 1060. - FIRST EDITION of Hertz's first paper on electromagnetic waves, with the second journal publication of his second paper. "When Hertz entered physics in the 1870's, electrodynamics was in a disorganized state. Theories had multiplied in its fifty years of development, and each had its own following... To encourage... the experimental decision between electrodynamic theories Helmholtz proposed through the Berlin Academy of Sciences in 1879 a second prize problem, this one in connection with the behavior of unclosed Circuits in Maxwell's theory... Although at the time Hertz declined to try the Berlin Academy problem... he kept the problem constantly in mind; and in 1886 shortly after arriving in Karisruhe he found that the Riess or Knochenhauer induction coils he was using in lecture demonstrations were precisely the means he needed for undertaking Helmholtz' test of Maxwell's theory... By the end of 1888 he had gone beyond the terms of Helniholtz' problem and had confinned the existence of electromagnetic waves in air... He published a total of nine papers from his electrical researches in Karlsruhe. They drew immediate, widespread recognition.." (DSB). -- In his first paper Hertz described the apparatus that he had devised for the detection and measurement of electromagnetic waves, the key to his later successes. To prove that electrical waves can be projected though space it was necessary to devise a means of both producing the waves and, more difficult at the time, of detecting them once produced. For this Hertz used "an effect as old as the discovery of electricity itself-the electric spark. By inducing the waves to produce an electric spark at a distance, with no apparent connexion between the oscillator and the spark gap, and by moving the sparking apparatus so that the length of the spark varied, he proved beyond question the passage of electric waves through space" (PMIVI). "Hertz's proof was the result of his experimental inventiveness... He regarded his detection device as his most original stroke, since no amount of theory would have predicted that it would work" (DSB). In his paper on ultraviolet light Hertz showed that UV light is alone responsible for the photoelectric effect, an effect which he foresaw as having "profound theoretical meaning for the connection of light and electricity" (op.cit.). The volume also includes papers by Max Planck, W C. Rontgen, R. Bunsen, and others. Near Fine.

        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. FIRST EDITION.

      Printed for the descendants of Lord & Lady Byron, by William Clowes & Sons. 1887 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.

        China. No. 2 (1887). Despatch from Her Majesty's Minister at Peking, Forwarding a Report by Mr. H. E. Fulford, Student Interpreter in the China Consular Service, of a Journey in Manchuria.

      London. Harrison and Sons. June1887. Large colour folding map of Manchuria, 20pp, original wrappers, some foxing, quarto. This Report was submitted by H.E. Fulford (later Consul-General, 18 60 -1929) then a young student interpreter, who had been authorized to make a journey through Manchuria and requested to pay special attention to certain subjects, including the cultivation of native opium. As shown on the map attached to the report, his travels from May to December 1886 were extensive, ranging from north to south and east to west and taking in much of the then insufficiently known country. Though not directly stated, he made the journey in the company of H. E.M. James, a senior officer of the Indian Civil Service and author of "The Long White Mountain, A Journey in Manchuria" (London, 1888) who, with Captain F.J. Younghusband of the British Army in India, had wished to travel in China. Fulford had been authorized to join them, since he could speak and write Chinese.Fulford encountered Russian officials along the northern frontier, and many Korean immigrants in the south. He found that the Manchu government and its soldiery (all Manchu Bannermen) was ineffective in some areas, to the point where, from necessity, a Chinese Hunters Guild had been formed to administer a large forest tract that was otherwise without law and order, and that Chinese officials were being introduced to manage the large number of Chinese immigrants who formed the bulk of the population. Opium cultivation was proceeding in the face of the ineffectual proclamations he saw in various places, and was clearly well-established. He pays some attention to trade and industry, noting the resources and products of the country.Fulford's report was considered to be of value by the British Minister to China, who besides sending it to London, had also forwarded the sections on opium to the Viceroy of India. It should be read in conjunction with James' book which, by reason of its length, would have more to say on this and other subjects covered in the report. As it happened, Younghusband too (later Sir Francis) would provide a short but useful account of their Manchurian travels in his book, The Heart of a Continent (London, 1896). He includes an interesting photograph of the three travelers who seem to have been well suited to each other on this lengthy, and sometimes arduous, journey.

Le volume I comprend le texte et les planches dans le même volume. Les volumes II et III sont séparés en deux volumes chacun (un pour le texte et un pour les planches). VOLUME I, “TOMBES A SMELY” Journal de Fouilles de 1882-1886, (TEXTE et PLANCHES).

Traces de brulures très évidentes sur nombre de pages et traces d’eau. Imprimé en 1894 VOLUME III, “TOMBES A SMELY” Journal de Fouilles de 1889–1897, (TEXTE). 174 pages + 2 Large cartes.

La planche pliante XXI en couleur est reproduite partiellement sur page couverture. La planche VIII en couleur or. Imprimé en 1901. Sauf le volume II (PLANCHES) qui porte des traces de brulures évidentes et des traces d’eau, les autres volumes sont beaucoup moins touchés par ce qui a été apparemment un incendie. Les 5 volumes sont complets et reliés solidement en plein-cuir rouge fauve LE COMTE ALEXEI BOBRINSKY L’Auteur de cette œuvre magistrale, a été surtout connu comme politicien. Né en 1852, il fut président de la noblesse de Saint Petersbourg du 14 avril 1876 au 27 janvier 1890 et du 1er février 1893 au 8 février 1897. Sénateur 1896 et membre du conseil d’État 1er janvier 1912. Il était descendant de Catherine II et de Gregory Orlov. La révolution Russe oblige le Comte à fuir la Russie en 1919. Il émigre en France ou il milite pour la cause monarchiste Nous constatons ainsi que la carrière politique était bien connue. Quant à sa carrière archéologique nous lisons ceci : (Découverte archéologique) Il découvre dans un tumulus Scythe au Kourgane de Solokha un peigne d’or qui est exposé de nos jours au trésor d’État du musée de l’Ermitage à Saint Petersbourg. Il nous parait évident que celui qui parle des découvertes archéologiques du Comte Bobrinsky, et les réduit à un peigne en or conservé à l’Ermitage, ignore toute l’œuvre Magistrale de Bobrinsky, dont les découvertes rappellent celles de l’Égypte, avec tous les trésors sortis de terre, et que nous les montrent en partie les planches de ces 5 volumes, et qui ont exigé des fouilles de plus de vingt ans. Il nous semble que les œuvres de Mr. Bobrinsky ont été, soit détruites, soit ignorées volontairement par le Régime communiste à cause de son appartenance à la noblesse russe et à sa défense de la cause Monarchiste durant toute sa carrière politique, et jusqu’à sa mort.
