        Q. Horati Flacci Opera

      1888. A Stunning Mosaic Binding[RAMAGE, John, binder]. HORACE. Q. Horati Flacci Opera. Londoni: [Printed by C. Whittingham for] Kegan Paul, Trench & Soc., 1888. Small octavo (6 1/4 x 3 3/4 inches; 159 x 95 mm.). 302 pp. Preface by Francis Warre Cornish. Engraved frontispiece and printer?'s device on title page.Bound ca. 1888 in red morocco elaborately inlaid in a mosaic pattern by Ramage (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers bordered with thin decorative and plain gilt rules, the rest of the boards entirely covered with inlaid diapering featuring rows of teal lozenges tooled with gilt fleurons, these flanked on all four sides with inlaid tan circles, the red morocco tooled with curving gilt lines attached to the dots, raised bands, spine compartments with similar inlaid teal lozenges tooled in gilt, delicate gilt cornerpieces, gilt titling, pastedowns framed by red morocco inlaid with tan circles at the corners and with gilt floral tooling, cream-colored watered silk endleaves, all edges gilt. An exceptionally fine example housed in a later felt-lined red cloth clamshell case with two gilt lettered black leather labels on the spine.This is a very attractively printed and beautifully bound edition of Horace, edited by beloved Eton schoolmaster Francis Warre Cornish (1839-1916). The volume features a sparkling and animated design from one of the most respected English binders during the last half of the 19th century. Born in London in 1836, John Ramage served an apprenticeship with John Wright, and then went to Paris, where he was able to work with the distinguished Marcellin Lortic. In 1860 Ramage purchased the binding business of Alexander Banks, Jr., in Edinburgh, then returned three years later to London, where he was in business at various locations into the 20th century (W.D. and N.M. Ramage carried on the business until 1929). The delicate and careful execution for which the bindery was known is clearly well displayed in the mosaic inlays on this example which follows a tradition of mosaic bindings that is said to have originated in France in the early part of the 18th century and was resurrected in England at the end of that century by Staggemeier & Welcher, perhaps at the suggestion of James Edwards.

        Psitteuteles Arfaki (Arfak Lorikeet)

      London 1888 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor, from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. While in Papua New Guinea, he decided to embark on a final folio as a complement to his unprecedented “Birds of Asia”. “The Birds of New Guinea” was Gould's last full-scale work, left incomplete on his death in 1881. Gould completed twelve of the twenty-five parts, and the task of finishing the project fell to Richard Bowdler Sharpe, a superbly qualified successor, who had been Gould's colleague, assistant and friend. One of Gould's most exotic works, the five magnificent volumes of the Birds of New Guinea contain an extensive series of beautiful images of birds of paradise, bower birds, parrots, parakeets, cockatoos, kingfishers and hawk-owls. All of the 320 images are extraordinary for their color and artistry, interesting backdrops and animated compositions. Gould and Sharpe created some of their most engaging and active scenes of bird life in the “The Birds of New Guinea”, and the great popular reception of the work was such that it was one of their only productions that led to a sequel, Sharp's “Birds of Paradise” (1891-98). Missing from that later production, however, was the almost overwhelming variety of species of the “The Birds of New Guinea”, which, like the “Birds of Asia”, was the most comprehensive chronicle of the island's ornithology ever issued. This folio size, hand-colored lithograph, Psitteuteles Arfaki, is in very good condition with light foxing throguhout. Measuring 21.5" x 14.75", this lithograph displays the author’s scientific skill and attention to detail. Commonly called Whiskered Lorikeet or Plum-faced Lorikeet, these birds are expertly hand-colored in vibrant shades of green with red, yellow, blue and black accents. Also characteristic of these birds is the white spotted lines under their eyes. These birds are shown in dynamic positions, allowing for the viewer to appreciate the coloring of the back as well as the front and wingspan of the birds. They are set within a lush forest area, similar to their natural habitats in New Guinea.

        ORIGINAL BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPH BY HORACE BRISTOL

      First Edition. Photograph. Fine. An original black and white photograph, signed by Bristol on the mat "Horace Bristol '4" Image measures 7 x 8.75 inches, overall approx 17.25 x 21.25 inches matted and framed under glass, wood frame painted black (with a few rubs and nicks). A stunning image, close-up head shot, of a serious O'Neill (1888-1953), who was an Irish American playwright and Nobel laureate in Literature, and one of the first to introduce into American drama techniques of realism earlier associated with Russian playwright Anton Chekhov, Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, and Swedish playwright August Strindberg. His best known plays include: Anna Christie (Pulitzer Prize 1922), Desire Under the Elms (1924), Strange Interlude (Pulitzer Prize 1928), Mourning Becomes Electra (1931), and his only well-known comedy Ah Wilderness. In 1936 he received the Nobel Prize for Literature. Horace Bristol, 1909-1997, was a giant of photo-journalism, a man whose images of Depression-era despair in the United States, wartime heroism in the Pacific and postwar poverty and hope in rural Korea have been ranked with the great pictures of the century

        Sir Stuart and Herbert Samuel manuscript travel diary written by Sir Stuart Samuel, brother of Herbert Samuel

      1888. Hard Cover. Very Good+. 8-3/4" x 6-3/4",  58pp. single sided with many more blank pages.  An important North American travel diary - Judaica - Sir Stuart and Herbert Samuel manuscript travel diary written by Sir Stuart Samuel, brother of Herbert Samuel, recording a visit they both made to America in 1888, written in a neat legible hand on approx. 58pp Marbled boards with label to front cover 'Stuart & Herbert's travels in America & Canada 1888'. New black cloth spine with gilt type. Very good+ condition.They appear to have covered a large amount of territory in their travels, arriving in New York where Sir Stuart describes the Statue of Liberty which had only been erected a few years before. Sir Stuart Montagu Samuel, 1st Baronet (24 October 1856 - 13 May 1926) was a British Liberal politician. He was the elder brother of Herbert Samuel, 1st Viscount Samuel. He attended the Liverpool Institute and University College School, Hampstead, London. He served as Justice of the Peace for the county of London, and was elected Member of Parliament for Whitechapel in 1900, replacing his uncle Samuel Montagu, 1st Baron Swaythling. Sir Stuart, who was at one time president of the Board of Jewish Deputies, headed the commission of inquiry sent by the British government to Poland to investigate the anti-Jewish excesses in 1919. Sir Stuart was a member of the banking firm of Samuel Montagu and Company. Its Canadian content, there are approx. 13  pages devoted to Canada. He sets off from New York, visiting Lake Champlain, then takes a trek on foot to the Ausable Chasm, enjoys the beauty of the Adirondack Mountains, , goes to Auger Lake, arrives at Montreal (which he describes as 'something like Manchester'), goes by boat down the St Lawrence and shoots the Lachinne Rapids, takes a carriage to the Montmorency Falls , goes to Quebec, which he describes, then goes on to Toronto and then describes in much detail his visit to Niagara Falls (from the Canadian side) before going on to Chicago.He describes the Niagara Falls and farming methods in the country surrounding and then their travels in southern Canada before returning to America and thence to the southern States. Here he describes plantation life and the activities of the former slave workers - who had only been emancipated a generation before. He seems particularly interested in cotton production - noting that despite their emancipation the former slave workers seemed to still be doing all the work !The diary ends in mid sentence for whatever reason, still quite an interesting  manuscript travel diary in 1888.

        Climacteris Placens, Sclater (New-Guinea Tree-Creeper)

      London 1888 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor, from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. While in Papua New Guinea, he decided to embark on a final folio as a complement to his unprecedented “Birds of Asia”. “The Birds of New Guinea” was Gould's last full-scale work, left incomplete on his death in 1881. Gould completed twelve of the twenty-five parts, and the task of finishing the project fell to Richard Bowdler Sharpe, a superbly qualified successor, who had been Gould's colleague, assistant and friend. One of Gould's most exotic works, the five magnificent volumes of the Birds of New Guinea contain an extensive series of beautiful images of birds of paradise, bower birds, parrots, parakeets, cockatoos, kingfishers and hawk-owls. All of the 320 images are extraordinary for their color and artistry, interesting backdrops and animated compositions. Gould and Sharpe created some of their most engaging and active scenes of bird life in the “The Birds of New Guinea”, and the great popular reception of the work was such that it was one of their only productions that led to a sequel, Sharp's “Birds of Paradise” (1891-98). Missing from that later production, however, was the almost overwhelming variety of species of the “The Birds of New Guinea”, which, like the “Birds of Asia”, was the most comprehensive chronicle of the island's ornithology ever issued. This magnificently hand-colored lithograph, "Climacteris Placens, Sclater", measures 21.5" x 14.75" and is in excellent condition. These birds, commonly called New-Guinea Tree-Creepers, are expertly hand-colored, with brown feathers, intricately patterned with tan and blue accents throughout their bodies and wings. Each bird has an orange cheek and crown. Both birds are shown clutching a thick tree branch as they eye the small bugs in front of them.

[".,.,.historians declare that it wasn' t until 1887 that Parke, Davis & Co. began distributing dried peyote,obtained from Dr. John Briggs of Dallas, (who obtained it from his brother in Mexico). Dr. Louis Lewin, a scientist and artist often called ' the father of modern psychopharmacology' received some of this material, labelled "Muscale Button' in Germany in 1887. The next year he travelled throughout the southwestern United States and took dried specimens back to Europe, where he soon isolated numerous alkaloids from peyote. In 1888 he stimulated other pharmacological investigations by publishing the first report on the cactus' chemistry" - Peter Stafford "Psychedelics Encyclopedia" p. 110].

        Signed archive of rare United States Government circulars, enclosures, and supplements

      1888. hardcover. These documents are dated from 1884 to 1892. Several are signed in type by Robert Todd Lincoln, American Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Department of State. 13.25 x 8.25-inch slim folio-sized volume, bound with marble boards and leather, 20 pages, with the addition of an important typed letter signed by Benjamin F. Butler, investigating a mass inheritance fraud perpetrated on the citizens of America by con artists in the United Kingdom. During this period, American citizens would be notified that they were heirs to a large unclaimed English Estate or perhaps a large sum of money held in the Bank of England. To receive their inheritance, they were told that certain legal fees and real estate transfer taxes would have to be paid to agents of the British Government. Another variation of the scheme involved American con artists placing advertisements in newspapers calling themselves "European claim agencies" and charging Americans exorbitant fees for investigating the ownership of non-existing estates. Lincoln is flustered because the American Legation in London is receiving hundreds of letters from American citizens who were swindled, and yet little was being done in the United States to educate its citizens to the magnitude of the fraud. Mr. Lincoln to Mr. Blaine [extract], March 3, 1891, "...since March 4, 1889, one hundred and ninety (190) letters have been received at this Legation alleging the writers claims to large estates in England or to fantastic sums of money 'in chancery' or 'in the Bank of England,' none of them containing an element of probability..." In conclusion is a typed letter signed by former Union General Benjamin F. Butler, 1 page on law office letterhead, Boston, November 14, 1888, whereby he brings to light the vast magnitude of the con, in part: "...I have now been more than 45 years in the practice of a legal profession, more or less extensively. I have heard of more than 4500--I hope I do not exaggerate--cases of large estates in England awaiting American heirs, and I have been consulted in a very great many, and early in life looked into such matters; but I have not for the last 25 years at all because I never have heard of one dollar coming from England to any American heir on account of such estates. In the first place it is a legal impossibility unless the heirs are British subjects...all those I have ever known about are swindles..." Leather binding worn at the spine with light fading to the marble boards. All interior documents are in good to very good condition.

This folio size, hand-colored lithograph, Psitteuteles Arfaki, is in very good condition with light foxing throguhout. Measuring 21.5" x 14.75", this lithograph displays the author’s scientific skill and attention to detail. Commonly called Whiskered Lorikeet or Plum-faced Lorikeet, these birds are expertly hand-colored in vibrant shades of green with red, yellow, blue and black accents. Also characteristic of these birds is the white spotted lines under their eyes. These birds are shown in dynamic positions, allowing for the viewer to appreciate the coloring of the back as well as the front and wingspan of the birds. They are set within a lush forest area, similar to their natural habitats in New Guinea.
