        RANCH LIFE AND THE HUNTING-TRAIL

      New York: The Century Co, 1888. First edition. Very Good. First issue in the original tan buckram binding with green and gilt stamping and beveled boards, all page edges gilt. A solid Very Good copy with boards somewhat soiled, minor wear to the spine ends and some pencil markings erased from the front end paper, otherwise a relatively clean tight copy. & & The first major work illustrated by Frederick Remington, who up until that point had only sketched for magazines. Remington would go on to become one of the most prominent artists of the American West. The book is based on Roosevelt's experiences ranching in the Dakota Badlands during the cattle boom of the 1880s. The book documents his everyday routine, herding, hunting and working the ranch, as well as his extraordinary exploits such as the capture of three outlaws and guarding them for 40 straight hours without sleep, while transporting them to trial. A fantastic early account of western life by an American icon and one closely associated with the tough western lifestyle. Very Good.

        NORTH AGAINST SOUTH

      1888. With Numerous Illustrations. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1888. Original blue-grey cloth pictorially decorated in black and red. First British Edition of this adventure tale taking place during the American Civil War. This is the tale of the antagonism between Burbank (an anti-slavery Northerner now living near Jacksonville, Florida) and Texar (a pro-slavery Southerner); Texar winds up kidnapping Burbank's daughter and hiding her in the Everglades, and Burbank heads off in search of his daughter -- all as the Civil War rages around them.~NORD CONTRE SUD came out in France in 1887, and by the end of the summer of that year the American pirate publisher George Munro came out with TEXAR'S VENGEANCE in his wrappered Seaside Library. In November 1887, Rand McNally published a hardbound American edition (a different translation) titled TEXAR'S REVENGE. Then this British edition, hardbound and illustrated and the same translation as Rand McNally's, came out in December 1887 (though dated 1888). These were soon followed by Worthington's (New York) 1888 edition of TEXAR'S REVENGE. The book did not get good reviews in America: the New York Daily Tribune wrote,~[In Jules Verne's] story of "Texar"... a very thin streak of narrative is padded to almost unwieldy proportions by a quantity of remarkably inaccurate information about the rebellion. If anyone thought the game worth the candle it would be easy to point out the various comical inaccuracies in the historical part of the story... [quoted in T&M]~This copy is in the deluxe binding style, with all edges gilt; its condition is very good -- spine a bit sunned as always, volume slightly askew. This is a Verne title that we seldom see. Taves & Michaluk V033.

        Smith: A Tragedy

      Glasgow: Frederick W. Wilson and Brother, 1888. Paperback. Very Good in Wraps. Paperback. First Edition. 300 copies printed. SCARCE PRESENTATION COPY of Davidson';s fourth book, inscribed "To Mrs. John A. Cramb with kind regards from John Davidson." John Davidson (1857-1909) was a Scottish poet, playwright, and novelist. His chief talent was as a poet, and his work influenced early Modernists such as T.S. Eliot and Wallace Stevens. Due to personal and financial problems, Davidson ultimately committed suicide. The recipient and her husband, a student, were among Davidson';s closest friends when he attended Edinburgh University. They followed Davidson to London in the early 1890s hoping also for successful literary careers. In the end, John Cramb returned to academic life, becoming professor of Modern History at Queen';s College, London. Cramb had a crucial influence on Davidson';s later works (in particular The Testaments of John Davidson) through his book, The Origins and Destiny of Imperial Britain (1900). In the original parchment wrappers, which are browned and lightly soiled, but otherwise in very good condition. Interior pages are clean and bright, with very light rippling caused by tight signatures. Enclosed in red cloth folder, which is inserted into a red cloth slipcase with quarter leather spine. Gilt title, author, date, and "presentation copy" to spine. 82 pages including publishers catalogue. DRA/051111.

        THE AUTOCRAT OF THE BREAKFAST TABLE. EVERY MAN HIS OWN BOSWELL

      Boston: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1888. Forty-Ninth Edition. Hardcover. Contents clean; mild rubbing to spine tips. Near Fine. Octavo (5" x 7-1/2") in original gilt-decorated green cloth. A Grolier American 100 book. This copy INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front blank: "Harold C. Ernst/with the kind regards of/Oliver Wendell Holmes./August 7th 1888." Laid in is an AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED from the author to Dr. Ernst dated 28 February 1891 thanking him for a lecture he sent to Holmes and asking Ernst to keep him informed of the progress in the new department in which he is involved. In full: "I am much obliged to you for your interesting Lecture which I sat down and read as soon as I received it. Therefore you should continue to keep us all informed from time to time of the progress making in this wonderful new department of science to which you are directing yourself." Holmes may be referring to a meeting of the New York Academy of Medicine on 16 October 1890 when Ernst spoke on the rabies virus and vaccination. (Louis Pasteur and Emile Roux developed the first rabies vaccine in 1885.) Apparently a copy that was once owned by Holmes himself as his bookplate is on the front pastedown. Laid in is a 1980 receipt from a bookseller selling each of these two items separately for one hundred and fifty dollars each. Dr. Harold C. Ernst was first a star pitcher on the baseball team at Harvard and later a professor of bacteriology and pathology at Harvard Medical School. In 1919 he was the first recipient in America of the Gold-Headed Cane Award.

        The Chess Monthly

      iv+380 pages with illustrations, diagrams, tables, and index. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 6 1/4") bound in half brown leather with gilt lettering to spine and blue marbled boards. From the library of Dino Ruggieri. Volume IV (4). (Betts: 7-25). First edition.The Chess Monthly of Great Britain was one of the first to give properly annotated games. The principal editor, Leopold Hoffer, was helped enormously by having J H Zukertort as co-editor until his death in 1888. There were four regular sections: news, annotated games, problems and endgames. In addition, Hoffer carried on a profoundly bitter feud with his one-time benefactor, Steinitz. This publication should not be confused with The Chess Monthly published in the United States which was short lived from 1857-1862 and edited by Fiske and Morphy.Dino Ruggieri was born in, Pigüé a small city in the Buenos Aires province, October 22, 1921. His parents were both Italians, natives of Porto D'Ascoli. In their early years in Argentina, the Ruggieri?s family lived in the country, located about 45 miles from Pigüé. The family was engaged in agriculture. When Ruggieri was 8, his father purchased a home in Pigüé, where he lived until 2008. In 1938 he was involved in an accident and he was transferred to Buenos Aires for recovery. This was the beginning of his hobby of chess, both as a player over the board and by correspondence, but as well as a major collector of chess materials. After his recovery he became a prominent local chess player and very good representative in postal chess, where he represented Argentina in matches against Italy, Yugoslavia, Holland and other countries. He was using the correspondence with his rivals to offer exchanges. Ruggieri was related to Mr Niemeijer and soon began exchanging materials and making important purchases. He also had frequent contacts with Gregorio Lastra, Normando Ivaldi, Gaspar Soria and Carlos De Veyga, all known collectors of chess. He died in 2009 at the age of 88.Condition:Corners bumped, Ruggieri's stamp to front end paper, foxing else a very good copy of a scarce item.

        THE FLIGHT TO FRANCE

      1888. With Numerous Illustrations. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1888. One preliminary page undated ads (with this title the last added). Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black. First British Edition, also the first hardbound and first illustrated edition in English, published the year after the French edition titled LE CHEMIN DE FRANCE. This tale takes place during the 1792 defense of France under General Dumouriez against the invading Prussians -- culminating in the "cannonade of Valmy." This was one of Verne's most anti-German tales (along with THE BEGUM'S FORTUNE); to quote from a contemporary British review (cited by T&M),~This is a dangerous theme for a French writer, especially now, when the national feeling runs so high against all that is German... The writer delights to seek in the past a literary revenge for recent disasters, as it seems not to be likely to come in the immediate future... It somewhat mars our enjoyment to hear, so to speak, throughout the gnashing of teeth whenever anything German is mentioned... ~The actual first edition of this title in English was published in wrappers in Toronto, by October 1888; this Sampson Low edition was next, published the following month. In the same month, a wrappered American edition was published by Frank Lovell.~This copy is in the secondary binding of green cloth decorated entirely in black (and thus lacks one of the best features of the primary binding, the gilt "streaks of rain" across the front cover scene). Condition is fine except for a cracked front endpaper. Taves & Michaluk V032; Myers 21.

Clarence Bagley, the printer, was a pioneer newspaperman and a personal friend of Denny. The first edition had a small press run, probably no more than 300 copies, and it was distributed among Denny's friends with no copies being offered for sale. An unknown number were distributed, but the majority were still in Bagley's printing shop when the Seattle fire of 1889 completely destroyed the shop along with all the remaining copies. These circumstances combine to make it one of the rarest of the early Washington Territorial imprints." - Tweney Image or additional images available upon request

Sa'di, llamado originalmente Muslih-uddin, nació en Shiraz y estudió en Bagdad, donde permaneció durante treinta años, viajando después entre 1226 y 1256 por Europa, Etiopía, Egipto, Siria, Palestina, Armenia, Turquía, Arabia e Iran, hasta mas allá del Indo, en el Indostan. Después de unos años en Damasco, en Jerusalén fue hecho prisionero por los Francos y condenado a trabajos forzados en Trípoli para ser finalmente liberado por un amigo de Alepo. Volvió a Shiraz donde permaneció hasta el fin de su larga vida entre el sufismo y la poesía. El «Gulistan» es una obra en prosa, con versos intercalados, sobre la sabiduría práctica y las cuestiones morales, en un estilo fácil y amenísimo, con mumerosos pasaje autobiográficos. -

        The butterflies of the eastern United States and Canada with special reference to New England

      Cambridge, Mass.: published by the Author, [November 1888 - October] 1889. 3 volumes, quarto. (10 5/8 x 7 3/4 inches). Half-titles, 2pp. list of subscribers, 2 small format errata slips. 3 portrait frontispieces (1 chromolithographed, 1 printed in three colours, 1 uncoloured), 1 folding uncoloured map, 3 maps printed in three colours (2 folding), 89 maps and plates (21 chromolithographs [10 of butterflies and moths, 4 of eggs, 4 of caterpillars and 3 of pupa,] 15 distribution maps printed in two colours, 53 uncoloured.) (Old creasing to folding map at back of vol.III). Contemporary red half morocco gilt, spines in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second and fourth, sprinkled edges (extremities rubbed, joints weak). An important 19th-century colour plate book and American natural history work Samuel Scudder's work, one of the most important books about butterflies published in America in the 19th century, was an elaborate publication employing the latest production methods for the plates. The work exemplifies the rapidly changing late 19th-century world of illustration technology, with the finely executed chromolithographs by Thomas Sinclair & Son and Julius Bien & Co. of Philadelphia being complemented by the more scientifically precise images in black and white. These were produced using gelatin-process photographs, photogravures, and electrotypes. Most sets of Scudder's work are found bound in three volumes, each with its own titlepage dated 1889 (as here). It is known however that the work was issued by Scudder in monthly parts over the course of a year, from November 1888 to October 1889. Particularly full information is given about the origins and production of each plate: it is interesting to note that the artists of the original drawings used in the compilation of the coloured plates of butterflies and moths (all printed by Sinclair) included J.H. Blake, S.L. Smith, G.A. Poujade and Louis Trouvelot (best known now for his astronomical drawings). Bennett p.96; BM(NH) IV, p.1888; McGrath pp.46 & 148; Reese Stamped with a National Character 106

        Looking Backward 2000-1887

      Boston: Ticknor & Company, 1888. First Edition. Octavo (19cm); original gray cloth; 470pp. Blanck's earliest printing, with imprint of printer J.J. Arakelyan on verso of title page; "wore" for "were" on p.210. Laid in are an original albumen photographic portrait of Bellamy and a card signed by the author, each with evidence of having been removed from an album - as found, but of unknown (and perhaps dubious) provenance. The book shows a bit of external soil, with dulling to spine gilt; endpapers foxed; text clean, and overall in an excellent state of preservation, easily Very Good.& & Without question the most influential 19th-century American utopia, and included among the Grolier Club's One Hundred Influential Books Printed Before 1900. Looking Backward spawned not only a host of literary imitators, accounting for the great profusion of utopian fantasies between 1890 and 1900, but also inspired a great many American social and political movements during the Progressive Era; "Bellamy Clubs" became a prominent feature of social life in all but the least progressive of American cities, and many of their members went on to influential careers in social reform and politics. Though almost continuously in print from the date of publication until the present day, the first printing has long been considered an uncommon and desirable book; the present copy among the better examples we have handled, and of special interest for the included portrait and autograph.

(Dillettantisme) - 7 ff. (Insomnie) - 1 f. bl. Environ 25 lignes par feuillet. Important recueil de nouvelles composé par l'auteur et dédié à Edouard Drumont. La plupart d'entre elles semblent inédites, à l'exception de "Enterrement d'artiste", parue dans Comoedia. Toutes les nouvelles, sauf "Vieille fille", sont en premier jet et comportent de nombreuses ratures et corrections, certaines sont agrémentées de remarques en regard et de papillons contrecollés. Elles sont toutes signées, datées de 1888 ou 1889 et situées, soit à Dèe (?) soit au Gaudinet (lieux-dit de Nantes à côté duquel se trouve désormais une rue Thomas Maisonneuve). L'écriture est généralement facilement déchiffrable, ce qui fait de ce manuscrit une lecture agréable. Poète breton, Thomas Maisonneuve a commis également des pièces de théâtre et au moins un roman assez crû : Décadence (étude d'artiste). Il a publié également plusieurs nouvelles dans la revue Comoedia, dont l'une est présente dans le manuscrit. Une note datée de 1907 disant qu'il fallait rétablir une nouvelle "si volume il y a un jour" nous indique que l'auteur travaillait encore à cette date à son recueil et qu'il s'interrogeait sur l'opportunité de le publier. Un ensemble exceptionnel, presque intégralement inédit, et en fort bel état malgré des usures à la percaline..

        Recherches sur l'absorption de la lumiere. Thèses presentees a la faculté des sciences de Paris pour obtenir le grade de docteur ès sciences physiques.Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1888. First edition.

      Becquerel's doctoral thesis on the absorption of light in crystals. Norman 156.<br/><br/> "On March 15, 1888 he submitted his thesis 'Recherches sur l'absorption de la lumière' (Research on the absorption of light). Antoine Henri had been interested in the absorption of light by crystals since 1886 and showed the importance of crystal symmetry in the absorption spectra of polarized light. He noticed that tetravalent uranium compounds were not phosphorescent, whereas uranyl salts exhibited a bright luminescence under the same conditions of excitation. Interestingly enough this was the second experiment performed by a Becquerel on uranium. Like his father, Antoine Henri was fascinated by the phenomenon of phosphorescence, and at the time nobody suspected the secret hidden in the mysterious element. This strange coincidence might be regarded as a premonitory sign of destiny or as the first step towards a major discovery." (Adloff: 100 Years after the Discovery of Radiochemistry, p.5).<br/><br/> Six other doctoral thesis bound in (of which Deslandres' is another important work): Deslandres, <i>Spectres de bandes ultra-violets des métalloïdes avec une faible dispersion</i>, 1888; <br/><br/> Berson, <i>De l'influence de la température sur l'aimantation</i>, 1886; <br/><br/> Perot, <i>Sur la mesure du volume spécifique des vapeurs saturées, et détermination de l'équivalent mécanique de la chaleur</i>, 1887; <br/><br/> Gouré de Villemontée, <i>Recherches sur la différence de potentiel au contact d'un métal et d'un liquid</i>, 1888; <br/><br/> Vautier, <i>Recherches expérimentales sur la vitesse d'écoulement des liquides par un orifice en mince paroi</i>, 1888; <br/><br/> Chauvin, <i>Recherches sur la polarisation rotatoire magnétique dans le spath d'Islande</i>, 1889. <br/><br/> Provenance: probably compiled by the terrestrial physicist and oceanographer Alphonse Berget, with his bookplate to the front paste down and his initials in gilting to the spine.. 4to (266 x 213 mm), fine red morocco with green vellum corners from about 1900 with gilt spine lettering listing the seven authors.
