        MY ADVENTURE IN THE FLYING SCOTSMAN: AROMANCE OF LONDON AND NORTH-WESTERN RAILWAY SHARES

      London: James Hogg andSons, 1888., 1888. First edition. Rainbow-colored, cloth front cover and tan rear cover, 63 pp. Front cover moderately rubbed, else a very good copy of a rare book. This book was considered to be rare in 1951, when Queen's Quorum was originally published. Queen's Quorum 13 says "In 1888, Eden Phillpotts's first book marked the beginning of one of the most prolific writing careers of our time. .... .... cornerstone honor should be accorded to Mr. Phillpott's maiden mystery, the thin, fragile book with the 'rainbow' stamping which is seldom found even in the so-called complete collections of Eden Phillpott's work. Modern readers will undoubtedly agree that MY ADVENTURES IN THE FLYING SCOTSMAN is an old fashioned tale of theft and attempted murder, relying a bit too strongly on the long arm of coincidence, but peopled with richly Victorian characters caught in the fell clutch of melodramatic circumstance." Housed in a clamshell case with the book's front cover design on the front panel.

        RANCH LIFE AND THE HUNTING-TRAIL

      The Century Co., [1888]., 1888. First edition. Large quarto. Original elaborate gilt pictorial cloth stamped in green and gold on the front cover (first state), [i-x], 186 pp., [p.187- vignette], frontispiece, illustrated by Frederic Remington, all edges gilt. This is Roosevelt's first book on his life as both a rancher and hunter in the West, and his first collaboration in book form with Frederic Remington, Roosevelt's friend. A splendid account of ranching and ranch life in the Dakotas in the 1880s, and an early Remington illustrated book. Six Score 93 says, " Roosevelt describes western ranching generally and his own experiences in the Dakota Badlands in particular. A New Yorker drawn by the cattle boom, Roosevelt developed a love of the West he never lost. He was prominent in the Little Missouri Stockman's Association, and was apparently respected as a cowman despite his origins. The illustrations by Remington are excellent." Light offsetting to the front and rear endpapers, else a near fine, bright, clean copy in the original dust jacket which is worn with chips at the spine ends and corners and several tears, yet still in serviceable condition. An uncommonly scarce Remington item, especially in the first state of the binding.

        Album of Botanical Specimens - Flora Alpina

      Zermatt, Switzerland 1888 - A most impressive illustration of apline flora collected and preserved by a botanical enthusiast who travelled to Switzerland in 1888 Zermatt, August 1888. Oblong 8vo. Nineteenth Century album containing 109 plant specimens collected in Swiss alpine regions, each identified by their scientific name in exquisite penmanship. A bouquet montage concludes the volume most elegantly. Original red cloth boards, tooled and titled "Flora Alpina" in gilt to front. Some wear to boards, otherwise very good condition, a pleasing volume presenting a substantial collection. A delightfully fastidious work, with impeccable placement to expose the finest textures, multiple varieties of a specific genus are juxtaposed for comparison, and whenever possible, the plants were extracted with even roots in tact. The English-speaking traveller and avid plant collector is unidentified but an inscription to the final leaf, alongside an exquisite bouquet montage reveals the source as Zermatt, and the date as August 1888. Primula, Phyteuma, Leontopodium alpinum (Edelweiss), Thlaspi, Dentaria digitata, Hieracium, Potentilla, Erigeron glabellus, and a Cypripedium calceolus (Lady's-slipper orchid), are but a few of the flowering plants preserved herein.

        Le Costume Historique (6 volumes)

      Paris: Firmin-Didot et Cie., 1888. 1st Edition. Half Morocco . Fine. Book. Elephant Folio - over 15. This is the much less common folio version of this work, with each of 6 volumes measuring 16.5 by 12.5 inches, or 42 by 32 cm. With 500 plates, 300 using color chromolithography. This copy is about as as good as it gets. Modern half morocco over green boards is pristine. Five thick raised bands on each spine, with gilt lettered labels. Traditional Victorian endpapers. All bindings are tight. Interiors are about as clean as can be, notwithstanding the most occasional and lightest of speck. This is one of the most elaborate and detailed costume books ever produced, if not the single most ambitious such work.It is still an invaluable reference, but it functions fabulously well simply as visual entertainment, and the plates contained herein have found their ways to many a print shop where they have been framed and later hung on walls as decoration. As not uncommon among costume books, Racinet also serves up a healthy helping of accessories and interiors throughout the ages. Like Racinet's other masterpiece, "L'Ornement Polychrome", the chromolithography of this work is exceptionally brilliant.

        Kniaz’ Igor’: Opera (Le Prince Igor: Opera in quatre actes avec prologue: Paroles russes du compositeur, Traduction francaise du Jules Ruelle, Traduction allemande du Madame Alexandroff.).

      Leipzig: Izd. M. P. Beliaeva 1888 - Small folio (33 x 26.5 cm). Original decorative wrappers; XVI, 1-213 pp. Chromolithograph signed A. Antipov; steel-engraved frontis portrait of Borodin with his signature and dedication leaf to M. Glinka. Private ownership stamp and signature; light wear to wrappers and spine, with soil and minimal loss to extremities; two bent corners and faint pencil inscriptions. First edition of Alexander Borodin’s (1833-1887) heroic opera Prince Igor, published posthumously in Leipzig by Russian music publisher M. P. Beliaeff, this copy being the arrangement for piano by F. M. Blumenfeld. At the time of Borodin's death, the work was incomplete and the present score was the result of furious collaboration by the leading musical intellects of Russia. The score would be revised many times in its history, but this edition, which was only published once, predates its first public performance in 1890 and thus serves as the historical blueprint for the oft-performed and well-loved opera, one of the best- known Russian operas among western audiences. Rare in the original wrappers and with the striking color chromolithograph showing a collection of typically Russian motifs. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Aborigines of Central Australia . With a vocabulary of the dialect of the Alice Springs Natives

      Port Augusta: D. Drysdale, 1888. Octavo pamphlet, 32pp., very good in original printed wrappers, crimson quarter morocco folding case. Important notes on Alice Springs. Scarce pamphlet on the customs and language of the central Australian tribes by William Henry Willshire (1852-1925), a policeman implicated in the abuse and wilful murder of Aboriginal persons under his protection. Although Willshire's book makes for sometimes disturbing reading, it is still of particular significance as a very early attempt to record the traditions and language of the Aboriginal tribes around Alice Springs, which had its first European settlers in 1872. Willshire himself was posted there in 1881, and had the task of establishing the Native Police corps of central Australia in 1884. For all the book's flaws, that is, it is nonetheless a remarkably early (the earliest?) western account of the Aborigines of central Australia, and of note for its perspective on relations between the local tribes and settlers. Willshire's later career was marred by various criminal proceedings due to his increasingly violent tendencies and his cruel "dispersal" of Aborigines. He was denounced by the Hermannsburg missionaries after three chained prisoners were shot in the back while "escaping" from his custody, and in 1891 he was indicted for the murder of two sleeping men by Francis James Gillen, the eminent ethnologist then working on his great studies of the Aborigines of Central Australia. A long and controversial case ensued and Willshire was ultimately acquitted amidst overwhelming support from outback settlers who raised bail of £2000 by public subscription. As a rule, Willshire's published works reveal more of European attitudes than Aboriginal culture: 'Sometimes vivid, they reflected the settlers'ethos: containing some reasonable anecdotal ethnology and word lists, they are distinguished more for their sexual overtones, boastful sadism and racial triumphalism' (ADB). Although deeply saddening and distasteful, this pamphlet is a significant historical record of this violent chapter in Australia's history.

        American Woods, Exhibited by actual Specimens and with copius Explanatory Text PARTS 1, 2, and 3 ONLY

      Lowville, NY: Romeyn Beck Hough. Hard Cover. Very Good. Originally issued (with the help of Hough's daughter) in 14 volumes, we present here the first THREE VOLUMES ONLY. Each is complete, with all sample sheets and text description pamphlet present. Volume 1 is dated 1888, and contains 27 sample sheets. Volume 2 is dated 1891, and contains 26 sample sheets. Volume 3 is dated 1892 and contains 26 sample sheets. Wood samples in each are generally bright and clean with a very occasional crack in the samples, as normal (these are wafer thin sections suitable for viewing through a microscope or for viewing by holding up to the light). Each card contains a transverse, radial, and tangential section, in addition to the names of the wood samples. Each volume is housed in a green cloth slipcase, with an 3 sided inner sleeve and a text description for that volume in original paper wraps. All three slipcases are quite worn, with minor insect damage. The closing hasp is lacking on volumes one and three. The spine panel of the inner sleeve for volume 2 is detached on one side. All three inner sleeves match their respective volumes. The text descriptions are all very good, noting spine loss to all three (still sound and usable). The slipcases could have new cloth attached to clean the set up if desired by the new owner. As is, the important part, the samples themselves, are in wonderful, clean shape noting the usual occasional cracks in the sample that are part and parcel of the manufacturing process. A useful reference work for those interested in identifying woods that in many cases are no longer available (furniture trade, antiques trade, natural history historians, etc). Hard Cover.

        L'amiral Baudin

      Paris: Librairie Plon, 1888. Small octavo, with seven folding maps: a fine copy in the original printed pale blue wrappers. In the original publisher's wrappers. First edition: a very scarce publication, by a French naval officer who sailed with the D'Entrecasteaux expedition in the 1790s. Admiral Charles Baudin played a role in the history of both Texas and Mexico: in 1838 he was sent by the government of King Louis Philippe in command of a blockading squadron to Mexico, 'accompanied by the king's third son, Prince Joinville. During the siege, known in Mexican history as the "Pastry War," all of the French provisions (including drinking water) were shipped from Havana. 'President Mirabeau B. Lamar sent Col. Barnard E. Bee to Veracruz to obtain Mexican recognition of Texas independence, but the Mexicans refused to see Bee, who consulted with Baudin and Joinville. Through the blockade of Veracruz, by engaging the military and depriving Mexico of import duties, its principal source of revenue, France impeded Mexico's attempts to reconquer its rebellious northeastern province, Texas, and avenge the Mexican defeat at the battle of San Jacinto. When negotiations failed to satisfy France's complaints, Baudin's squadron leveled the supposedly impregnable citadel of San Juan de Ullóa on November 27, 1838, earning Baudin international fame as the "hero of San Juan de Ullóa." During the bombardment of the citadel, Baudin's forces further disabled the Mexican army by capturing Gen. Mariano Arista (a future president) and wounding Gen. Antonio López de Santa Anna, whose leg had to be amputated. The Duke of Wellington proclaimed this victory to be the only known instance in history of a regularly fortified citadel's being taken solely by naval force. Accounts vary regarding the ultimate success of the mission, however, because Mexico expelled the French soon after Baudin's departure for Texas, where he became an honorary Galvestonian in May 1839… 'The role of Baudin in Texas history has been compared to that of the Marquis de Lafayette in the American Revolution, because Baudin and Lafayette personified France's aid to the young republics during their struggles for independence. After a distinguished career Baudin was promoted to admiral by Napoleon III only days before his death, on June 7, 1854.' (The Handbook of Texas, online version).
