        4 (3 autogr. and 1 typed) letters signed. Mostly London, 1887 to 1915.

      1887. Small 4to and 8vo. Altogether 10¼ pp. To various addressees, on appointments and non-appointments: "It is with sincere and keen regret that I find myself unexpectedly disabled by the call of public duty from being present with you this evening. I had looked forward to the opportunity of hearing what Lord Haldane had to say on the subject of our National duty in these critical times, and of paying such tribute as I could to the signal service he has rendered, and the splendid example he has set, to the Empire. As I cannot be with you, I should be glad if you would convey my message to your meeting. Lord Haldane is the oldest personal and political friend that I have in the world. For the best part of 35 years we have been associated in close and unbroken intimacy. We have worked together, and fought side by side, through many vicissitudes of fortune, in the pursuit of what we have believed to be great and worthy causes, without (so far as I can recall) more than a passing shadow of difference in opinion, and always with the same ideals in view [...]" (from the letter of July 5, 1915; to Mr. Lincolnshire).

        Kan'yu nikki [trans.: Journey around the World]

      Numerous plates & maps (some folding & in color). Three vols. in two. 8vo, orig. sheep-backed cloth (extremities rubbed), spines lettered in gilt. [Tokyo: Privately published],1887. First edition and privately published. Kuroda (1840-90), served as the second Prime Minister of Japan in the years 1888-89, during which he oversaw the promulgation of the Meiji Constitution. During the early 1870s, he had travelled widely: Korea, China, America, and Europe. In 1874, he was appointed director of the Hokkaido Colonization Bureau and invited many American agricultural experts to visit Hokkaido to provide advice on which crops would be the most successful. Unfortunately, in 1881 he became caught up in the Bureau's scandal which caused him to resign from public office. As a result, he again travelled in Europe and the United States during the years 1886-87. The present book is a detailed account of Kuroda's travels, including a vivid account of his crossing Siberia from Vladivostok to St. Petersburg. He gives careful and full details of Korea, Russia (including Moscow and St. Petersburg), Istanbul, Italy, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Brussels, Scotland, England (including London), Paris, New York (where he carefully studied the Brooklyn Bridge), the Erie Canal, Niagra Falls (of course!), Chicago, and San Francisco (including the fish canneries). Throughout he provides many observations on agricultural practices, industrial methods, foreign trade, the manufacture of steam engines, political and educational systems, public safety, transportation and communication systems, Chicago slaughter houses, military education, taxation, the punishment of criminals, and much statistical information. Very good set.

        Ancient Egypt or Mizraim

      1887 - BINION, Samuel Augustus. Ancient Egypt or Mizraïm. Profusely illustrated with fine engravings and colored plates by the best artists, from the works of L'Expedition de l'Egypte, Lepsius, Prisse d'Avennes, &c., &c. New York: Henry G. Allen, (1887). Two volumes. Elephant folio (19-1/2 by 26 inches), publisher's three-quarter brown morocco rebacked with original spines neatly laid down, original maroon cloth boards with gilt title to front cover, raised bands, all edges gilt. $19,500.Limited first edition, "Edition de Luxe," number 521 of only 800 copies, splendidly illustrated with 72 spectacular large folio plates of pyramids, temples, views, the Sphinx, antiquities, mummies, papyri, among other Egyptian subjects, including 50 beautiful tinted and full-color lithographs.This spectacular production by American Egyptologist Samuel Binion was considered the height of American chromolithography. Most of the huge plates are based on one of four major volumes of Egyptian travel and antiquities from the Napoleonic era through the mid-19th century: David Roberts' Egypt and the Holy Land, Prisse d'Avennes' Oriental Album, Lepsius' Denkmaler aus Agypten und Athiopen, and the Napoleon-commissioned Description de l'Egypte. Of particular beauty are the fully colored architectural reconstructions of Egyptian temples, and a splendid rendition of Cleopatra's Needle. Mizraïm was originally issued in 12 parts in wrappers; here the parts have been bound together into two volumes, as usually found, each with its own lithographic title page. Blackmer 143. Plates clean and fine, original bindings nicely restored, with just a bit of wear to corners. An exceptionally good copy in the original bindings. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Mother Lifting Child, Plate 214 from Animal Locomotion

      1887 - MUYBRIDGE, Eadweard. "Mother Lifting Child," Plate 214 from Animal Locomotion. [Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania, 1887]. Single large folio sheet, measuring 23-1/2 by 18 inches (colotype image measures 14-1/4 by 7-1/4 inches, apart from letterpress); mat size: 25-1/4 by 20-3/4 inches. $3500.Original "Author's Edition" collotype of multiple sequential studies of a mother lifting her child, from the most significant photographic work on the natural motion of animals.To settle a $25,000 bet that a galloping horse leaves the ground completely, former governor of California Leland Stanford hired photographer Eadweard Muybridge to determine whether or not his claim might be true. Muybridge designed an elaborate photographic system that combined batteries of multiple cameras with rapid shutter mechanisms, in an effort to capture the horse with all four feet off the ground. Stanford won his bet. These were the first successful sequential photographs of rapidly moving objects, and Muybridge would devote the rest of his life to similar photographic studies"" with the help of painter Thomas Eakins, who successfully persuaded the University of Pennsylvania to subsidize Muybridge's further experimentations. Between 1884 and 1886 Muybridge and his team produced 20,000 negatives of various animals and humans in motion, which were then arranged on 781 plates and printed in 1887 as Animal Locomotion. This magnificent sequence of a mother lifting her child is plate number 214, with penciled caption in bottom corner, "Lifting child from ground and turning. Same model as last." See Frizot, 244ff.; Grolier, Truthful Lens 123. Professionally cleaned, archivally matted. A historic piece. Scarce. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Histoire des Ballons et des Aéronautes célèbres

      Portrait of the author (in two states) & many photogravure plates (some in color & some double-page). xxiv, 156 pp., one leaf; 2 p.l., v, 161 pp., one leaf. Two vols. Large 4to (300 x 215 mm.), orig. printed wrappers bound in embroidered bindings designed by Marius Michel (detailed description below), t.e.g., others uncut. Paris: H. Launette, 1887-90. [bound with at the end of the second volume]:-. Bibliographie aèronautique. Catalogue de Livres d'Histoire, de Science, de Voyages et de Fantaisie, traitant de la Navigation ou des Aérostats. Decorative head-pieces. 62 pp., one leaf. Large 4to, orig. printed wrappers bound in. Paris: H. Launette, 1887. The author's own set, so stated on the limitation page, assembled in the most luxurious state from the issue limited to 25 copies printed on Japan paper, bound in two highly important embroidered bindings by Marius Michel. This set of the Histoire contains a double suite of all the photogravure plates and text illustrations in different states. The Bibliographie aèronautique is numbered "1" of 25 copies on Japan paper. Chemist, meteorologist, author, and aviator Gaston Tissandier (1843-99), and his brother Albert were the most famous balloonists of their time. They were the first to successfully power an airship using an electric motor. Gaston's history of ballooning was the standard work for many years and his bibliography was the first to be compiled on the subject of aviation. It is hard to imagine a more elaborate and luxurious set of these two works: the author's own copies, printed specially on Japan paper and limited to 25 copies each, with double sets of illustrations in different states, and bound in two superb and important embroidered bindings designed by and executed for Marius Michel. These works were exhibited at the magnificent and ground-breaking exhibition "Livres en Broderie," organized by Sabine Coron and Martine Lefèvre in 1995 at the Bibliothèque de l'Arsenal. The bindings are described as follows: original brown morocco, spines in five compartments & lettered in gilt; inset panels on each cover with elaborately embroidered floral scenes with pale green silk backgrounds, framed with alternating shades of brown & silver wire, flowers in various hues ranging from pale blue to dark red, each flower also framed with silver wire; each upper cover with a balloon ascending in the upper right hand corner, the balloon on Vol. I with the legend: "Sic itur ad astra," the balloon on Vol. II with a different design; the lower covers both having the same design but each employing different ranges of colors. The embroidery is very fine and fresh. Doublures with quintuple fillets in gilt and red silk endpapers. Morocco chemises and slipcases. Top edges gilt, others uncut. ? BnF, Livres en Broderie.

        Applicazioni geometriche del calcolo infinitesimale

      Fr.lli Bocca, 1887. In 8, pp. XII + 334 + (1) + (1) di errata con ill. n.t. Legatura in mz. pl. coeva. Edizione originale di questo importante studio sul calcolo infinitesimale di Giuseppe Peano (Spinetta di Cuneo, 1858-Torino, 1932), matematico e logico, che ha avuto fama anche per le sue proposte da linguista. Peano utilizza nei suoi studi il calcolo vettoriale, allora poco in uso. Proprio grazie a Peano e alla sua scuola questo tipo di calcolo si diffonde nell'ambiente matematico internazionale. Nel 1890 diventa professore di calcolo infinitesimale, ma non disdegna di parlare di logica ai suoi studenti. I cinque assiomi che propone (gli 'assiomi di Peano') diventano capisaldi per la costruzione dell'aritmetica come sistema logico. In geometria la 'curva di Peano' e' invece una curva continua non derivabile in alcun punto: in pratica costituisce uno dei primi esempi di frattale. Nell'ultima edizione del Formulario matematico, nel 1908, propone una nuova 'lingua perfetta', chiamata latino sine flexione. Si tratta di una lingua artificiale, semplificazione del latino, che non ottiene grande successo pratico. Anzi, avendo deciso di utilizzare questa lingua anche a lezione, ottiene la protesta dei suoi stessi studenti che non conoscendola, non la comprendono. ITA

Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen einen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können.\" Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14. - Halbleder-Vorzugsausgabe in sehr guter Erhaltung (Lederrücken mit leichten Gebrauchsspuren, sonst tadellos) - Halblederband, Halblederausgabe, illustrierte Bücher, griechische Götterwelt, Mythologie, klassisches Altertum, Prachtausgabe, Götter Griechenlands Versand D: 5,90 EUR Halblederband, Halblederausgabe, illustrierte Bücher, griechische Götterwelt, Mythologie, klassisches Altertum, Prachtausgabe, Götter Griechenlands
