        Bilder-Atlas zu Mekka. Haag, Nijhoff, 1888-1889.

      1888. Folio (284 x 378 mm). One volume of plates: 4 chromolithogr. plates (conjoined as 2), 6 (1 double-sized) toned lithogr. plates, and 65 mounted photographs on a total of 40 plates; 1 letterpress leaf of contents. Contemp. half cloth portfolio with cover title. Without the two text volumes; instead includes the English translation in its first edition: Mekka in the Latter Part of the 19th Century. Leyden & London, E. J. Brill & Luzac, 1931. 8vo. VI, 309, (3) pp. With 20 half-tone plates, folding plan of Mecca, and plan of the Haram. Original blue cloth. Remarkable set issued in merely 100 copies: the rare plate volume to accompany the author's two-volume "Mekka" but usually lacking from the text volumes. (Here, these are present in the first English edition.) A respected Dutch orientalist and scholar, Snouck Hurgronje was a key figure in the early history of the photography of Mecca, one of the first non-Arab photographers of the Hijaz. In 1884, Hurgronje was given leave of absence from his teaching post in Leiden in order to travel in Arabia. After an initial five months in Jeddah, he moved on to Mecca, arriving there in February 1885. Hurgronje stayed in the Holy City for approximately six months, during which time he converted to Islam, adopted the name Abdul Ghaffar and generally immersed himself in local customs and traditions. However, in August 1883, Hurgronje was accused of attempting to steal the Tayma Stone and was banished. On his return to Leiden, he published numerous works on Mecca and its inhabitants, including this important photographic monograph. The images, taken by himself and an Arabic physician, are among the earliest to show Mecca and its pilgrims. - Stamp of the "Indische genootschap" (Indies Society of the Netherlands) on index leaf and upper cover of portfolio. An edge tear to the mount of plate XXXVI. The vintage photographs, much sought as the earliest photographic documents of the city, its dignitaries and its pilgrims, are preserved in perfect condition. Macro 1239, omitting mention of the Atlas (& 1238 for the English text). Henze V, 177. Dinse 443.

      The Gospels and Acts in the Low (or Bazaar) Malay dialect of Malay: The text is in Roman character and is based on Hillebrandus Cornelius Klinkert's 1863 New Testament with some changes in orthography. Malay is an Austronesian language spoken in Malaya. The first printing of any portion of the Bible in Malay was the 1629 printing of the New Testament in High Malay. The first printing of any portion of the Bible in Low Malay was the ca. 1815 printing of Matthew's Gospel, with the Medhurst and Lenting1835 translation being the first N.T. in that dialect. Klinkert's fresh translation of 1863 was the second. Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Searches of WorldCat and NUC locate no copies of the 1863 translation, two of the 1869 printing, and four of this edition, one of which is this deaccessioned copy.

        Grass of Parnassus

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1888. A Fine Signed Captain Gladstone Binding GLADSTONE, Captain C.E., binder. LANG, Andrew. Grass of Parnassus. Rhymes Old and New. London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1888. First edition, Large Paper copy limited to one hundred and thirteen copies of which this is No. 76. Octavo ( 8 7/16 x 5 3/8 inches; 214 x 136 mm.). [2], xii, [1, Grass of Parnassus], [1, blank], [1]-124, [1, The last Chance], [1, blank], [1, The last Chance], [1, printers imprint] pp. Bound by Captain Gladstone ca. 1900 (stamp-signed "C.E.G." on front turn-in) in full dark blue crushed levant morocco, covers richly hand-tooled in gilt with an all-over vine and flower design, each cover featuring four 'Parnassian' flowers inlaid in green morocco and decorated in gilt. Smooth spine with similar gilt tooling and lettering, gilt ruled board-edges, wide and elaborate gilt vine and leaf design turn-ins, gray paper liners and end-leaves, top edge gilt. A very fine example of a 'signed' Captain C.E. Gladstone binding. Captain Charles Elsden Gladstone, RN, (1855.1919). Very little is known about Captain Gladstone other than he was born in Salford, Lancashire and lived in London, Hertfordshire and then Broadstairs in Kent. According to the 1891 census of England & Wales his occupation was listed as "Commander Royal Navy" and then in 1901 as "Commander of H.M.S. Eagle". We believe that he, like the Irish finisher Sir Edward Sullivan (who signed his books "E.S. Aurifex"), had his books bound by a local bookbinder - possibly John Smith of Maidstone, and then did the hand-tooling (finishing) himself. Apparently he was also a talented photographer - there are mentions of him in The British Journal of Photography (1889), the Journal of the Microscopic Society (1893) and he was an officer of the Lantern Society from 1890-93. His bindings with their very distinctive decorations are very often, but not always, signed in gilt "C.E.G." on the front turn-in. "Many of the verses and translations in this volume were published first in Ballads and Lyrics of Old France (1872). Though very sensible that they have the demerits of imitative and even of undergraduate rhyme, I print them again because people I like have liked them. The rest are of different dates, and lack (though doubtless they need) the excuse of having been written, like some of the earlier pieces, curing College Lectures. I would gladly have added to this volume what other more or less serious rhymes I have written, but circumstances over which I have no control have bound them up with Ballades, and other toys of that sort. It may be as well to repeat in prose, what has already been said in verse, that Grass of Parnassus, the pretty Autumn flower, grows in the marshes at the foot of the Muses' Hill, and other hills, not at the top by any means. Several of the versions from the Greek Anthology have been published in the Fortnightly Review, and the sonnet on Colonel Burnaby appeared in Punch. These, with pieces from other serials, are reprinted by the courteous permission of the Editors. The verses that were published in Ballads and Lyrics, and in Ballades and Verses Vain (Charles Scribner's Sons, New York), are marked in the contents with an asterisk." (Preface).

        [Schwabenkrieg] Supposita pictura regie maiestatis Helvetiorumque conflictum insinuat quo quisque loco victoria positus sit terga prebuerit hosti oculari demonstratione in qua quicque Helvetiorum loco S. Lra. ppnoitur. Reproduktion der Schwabenkrieg- oder Bodenseekarte des Monogrammisten PW (PPW) in Kupferlichtdruck. Hrsg.: Internationale Chalkographische Gesellschaft - International Chalcographical Society - Société Internationale Chalcographique.

      [Berlin, Reichsdruckerei, ca. 1888]. . Verkleinerter Kupferlichtdruck auf geripptem Bütten mit der eindrucksvollen Darstellung des Schwabenkrieges von 1499 aus der Vogelschau, geschaffen 1505 von dem Monogrammisten PW (PPW). Im Schwabenkrieg, auch "Schweizerkrieg" oder "Engadiner Krieg" genannt, kämpften die Eidgenossenschaft und das Haus Habsburg (mit dem Schwäbischen Bund als Verbündetem) um die Vorherrschaft im eidgenössisch-habsburgischen Grenzgebiet. Den Konflikt konnten die Eidgenossen militärisch, doch ohne Gebietszuwächse gewinnen. Die "südwestorientierte Darstellung mit Vedutencharakter, das Gebiet zwischen Einsiedeln, Rottweil, Salem und Bregenz umfassend" (Archivkatalog des Staatsarchivs St. Gallen), zeigt auf sechs Karten detaillierte Landschaftsdarstellungen und Schlachtenszenen. Die Ãœbersicht zeigt alle sechs Detailkarten im Zusammenhang, sowie den auf Blatt 2 gedruckten lateinischen Text und seine deutsche Ãœbersetzung: "Dis ist der Krich tzwichssen dem Rvmichssen kvnick vnd den Sweitzern vnd ganse lantschaft stet slos vnd dvrfe im Sweitzland vnd eim deil fon Swaben lant vnd wair ein s stait getzeichnit das ist den Sweitz vndworfen das and derich vnd de sprvnck vom Rein vnd Thonaw beide". Wilhelm Bonacker vermutet in seinem Aufsatz "Die sogenannte Bodenseekarte des Meisters PW bzw. PPW vom Jahre 1505" (1954 in "Die Erde 1", S. 29 f.) die Schweizer Seite als Auftraggeber, da bei den militärischen Darstellungen stets die Eidgenossen die Oberhand hätten. Auch hebt er die Qualität der Wiedergabe von Ortschaften und Gebäuden und der Schlachtszenen hervor, konstatiert aber bei den Gebirgen eine eher schematische Darstellung. Die Identität des Stechers ist nach wie vor nicht geklärt. In Passavants "Le peintre graveur" wird er als hervorragender, phantasievoller Künstler der oberdeutschen Schule des XV. Jahrhunderts beschrieben, seine Handhabung des Stichels sei "(d')une grande finesse et en maître, et son dessin est tr?s caractéristique, plein de vie et de mouvement". - Blattränder vereinzelt stockfleckig, zwei Blätter mit wenigen Stockfleckchen in der Darstellung. - Selten.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED ON HOUSE OF COMMONS LETTERHEAD, and manuscript leaf from his novel "Lady Lee's Widowhood"

      [London, U.K.]: 22 June 1888. - [London, U.K.]: 22 June 1888. 1888. Very good. - Letter: small octavo [7-3/8 inches high by 4-3/4 inches wide]. 128 words penned in black ink on all 4 sides of a folded, 4-sided sheet of House of Commons letterhead with the Commons seal at the top of the first side. Signed "Yours sincerely / Edward Hamley". There is occasional very light foxing to the letterhead & 2 pieces of mounting tape adhere to the right margin of the 4th side where the letter has been removed from an album. Folded once for mailing. Very good.Manuscript leaf: small quarto [9 inches high by 7 inches wide]. 83 words penned in black ink on one side of a sheet of cream watermarked paper. Folded 3 times with slight darkening down the top end of 1 vertical fold. 2 small pieces of tape adhere to the verso of the sheet where it has been removed from an album. Very good. The letter addressed to "My dear Mrs. Ford" expresses his regret that he missed her when he called on her. He congratulates her on becoming "the Mistress of Pencarrow", her family's estate and her childhood home. He goes on to complain about the House of Commons workload, though "we are not quite such slaves as we were last year." The manuscript leaf is from Hamley's novel "Lady Lee's Widowhood" and is headed "Chap. II." The page, which ends in mid-sentence describes the morning toiletries of two women characters. The first sentence of the extract reads: "Rosa, constitutionally an early riser, used to be always up before Orelia in the morning, until the latter took it into her head to have a shower-bath fitted up in the closet that opened from their room."Sir Edward Bruce Hamley [1824-1893] served in the Crimean War. He was professor of military history at the Staff College, Sandhurst from 1858 to 1877 and was Commandant of the College from 1870-1877. He was chief of the commission for the delimitation of the Balkan and Armenian frontiers [1879-80] and commanded a division in the Egyptian war of 1882. He was promoted to General in 1890. Hamley was Member of Parliament for Birkenhead from 1885 until his death in 1893.In addition to works on the Crimean War and his military manual "The Operations of War", Hamley was a short-story writer and poet, a translator of French verse, and the author of a novel "Lady Lee's Widowhood". He was a valued contributor to Blackwood's Magazine, wherein the novel first appeared in 1853. It was subsequently published in two volumes by William Blackwood and Sons in 1854. [Sadleir 1103; Wolff 2949].Both the letter and the manuscript come from the autograph collection of Mrs. Mary Ford, widow of Richard Ford who wrote the popular "Handbook for Travellers in Spain". The autograph collection [known as the Pencarrow Collection] was formed from the 1850s onwards, largely by Mary Ford in her long period of widowhood. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Color printed cotton with portraits of Harrison and George Washington below American flags and an eagle. It meas. appx. 23 x 17 inches. Apparently an inaugural artifact (souvenir?) for Benjamin Harrison. Washington's inaugural was in New York City, a century before Harrison.

        [NATIVES OF RUSSIAN PACIFIC SHORES] Ocherk inorodtsev russkogo poberezhiya Tikhogo okeana [i.e. Sketch of the Natives of the Russian Coast of the Pacific]

      St. Petersburg: Typ. of A.S. Suvorin, 1888. [2], 78 pp. Octavo. Contemporary green quarter cloth with marbled boards. Upper corner of the last free endpaper cut off and repaired with paper, otherwise a very good copy. First and only edition. Very rare Russian imprint as no copies were found in Worldcat. Interesting eye-witness description of a Russian merchant voyage to the North Pacific and the Arctic Ocean around the Chukotka Peninsula, published as an offprint from the Proceedings of the Russian Geographical Society (vol. XXIV). Resin, an associate of the Governor General of the new Priamyrskoe [Near the Amur River] Governorate (formed in 1884) was assigned to observe and describe its northern regions. In May-September 1885 he joined whaling schooner Sibir' captain planned to reach Wrangel Island, but was forced to turn back by the pack ice. During the return trip the schooner called at the Ratmanov Island (the Diomedes, Bering Strait) and traded there with the Chukchi. On the way to the Providence Bay the ship visited the Tkachen Bay (Chukotka) where the crew picked up a skull of a deceased Chukchi man which was later sent to the Academy of Sciences. The book describes the voyage from Vladivostok to the Karaga River (Northern Kamchatka) and further north around the Chukotka Peninsula; geography, climate, flora & fauna of Kamchatka, native population of the Petropavlovsk district, and the Gizhiginsky district (''chukmari'' or Kereks, sedentiary Koriaks, Raindeer Koriaks and Chukchi, sedentiary Chukchi). Special part is dedicated to the activities of the Americans near Russian Pacific shores (about 30-35 whaling and trading ships call every year, they hunt whales and walruses, bring rum, Winchester guns, tobacco, gun powder, knives, axes, animal traps, pottery, fabrics etc.), the author concludes that their influence to the natives is negative and proposes to establish a permanent coast guard at the Kamchatka and Chukotka shores.

        Typewritten memoir built upon and expanding a Civil War Diary kept by an officer in the 77th Pennsylvania Volunteers

      Pittsburgh: D. C. Williams Press, 1888. 1/2 leather. Very good. Rebound in half-leather. Typewritten. Complete. 361 pages. Sound binding. Clean pages. Light wear. In addition to his diary-memoir, this lot also includes a 233-page family genealogy, Thomas Robinson and his Descendants with entries about him and a 499-page text, Pennsylvania at Chickamauga and Chattanooga: Ceremonies at the Dedication of the Monuments, which contains transcripts of two of Robinson's speeches. This memoir is built upon an American Civil War diary kept by Robinson, who at various times was a member of the 9th, 73rd, and 77th Pennsylvania Volunteer Regiments. Entries detail the drudgery of military life, countless marches, ever-present sickness and death, battle action, and the life of a prisoner of war. It begins with Robinson's enlistment in the spring of 1861 as a private in the 9th Pennsylvania Volunteers and follows his career, mostly while assigned to the 77th, through to his Brevet Colonel promotion and return from the war in 1866. Robinson participated in the Siege of Corinth and the Battle of Stone River (Murfreesboro). He received a head wound at the Battle of Chickamauga and was taken prisoner after which he was shipped east and confined, first at Richmond's infamous Liberty Prison, then Salisbury, Macon, Charleston, and Columbia. He was eventually paroled, exchanged, and returned to his command. He then led the 77th Regiment in pursuit of Confederate forces throughout Alabama and east Tennessee. After the Army of Virginia surrendered at Appomattox, Robinson and his regiment were reassigned to occupy Texas until January, 1866 when they were returned to Philadelphia and mustered out of the service. Robinson's account is well written and contains some fascinating observations, including: * Upon his commission, Robinson was assigned to the 73rd Infantry which consisted entirely of recent German immigrants; this was done "in order to Americanize them." There he found rations consisted primarily of "lager, pretzels, sauerkraut, rye bread and sweitzer-kase." * At the final assault on Corinth, "They ran like sheep before us. . . . The Army in the night blowing up magazines an burning everything of value. Corinth looks like starvation. . . . We rest. * During the Battle of Stone River, "the 77th was not taken by surprise, as it had been standing at arms since 4 o'clock in the morning and presented at all times an unbroken front to the enemy. In the midst of the battle . . . we formed line after line, being driven back each time, at length . . . a stand was taken and the Enemy was repulsed. . . ." * "What a sad work for us! Was out over the battlefield, and am to-night sick with its scenes of horror. Many have tried to check the flow of blood from their own veins until too weak, then died with their eyes turned toward out lines, vainly wishing for help. . . . " * At Chickamauga we "marched eight miles this morning and went immediately into one of the most desperate battles of the war. . . . Fresh troops were brought up and came rushing upon us and we fought them until 8 P.M. Dark - and no support coming up - they flanked us, and here I am, a prisoner, on my melancholy way to Dixie - sick with chills, and no blanket, - nothing to eat - my haversack, sword and belt taken from me. His recounting of the bleakness of prison life is riveting in its concise despair. * We receive "1/2 loaf of bread and six oz. of meat a day. . . . Without blanket . . . 'Tis very cold. Must walk to keep warm. . . . Nothing to eat. . . Nothing to wear. . . No stool to sit upon. Must squat. . . . Time hangs heavy." * "Six hundred men in a small yard with no shade. . . . All of the filth and garbage of the prison is thrown out among us. Words can't describe the miserable condition we are in here. . . . Corn bread for two men . . . the size of half a brick, and indigestible. Horrible stuff. . . ." * "Today has been as yesterday, only more abundant in its ennui. . . . The C.S.A. is rotten and it stinks. . . . Beef and pork are played out, and we mourn our daily dish of soup. . . . Sweet potatoes are issued in place of meat." * "Our men from Belle Isle passed the prison to-day. A sad sight! Many of them unable to walk alone - leaning upon their comrades - literally starved, - dirty ghastly, thin legs and arms. Poor fellows! We pay back ten-fold." Quite scarce. As of 2017, OCLC locates only one other example at the John Heinz History Center in Ohio. None in the trade and no auction records at ABPC or the Rare Book Hub.

Scarron mourut alors qu'il travaillait à la troisième partie du roman, qui reste donc inachevé. L'adjectif « comique » de son titre indique à la fois qu'il s'agit d'une œuvre plaisante, humoristique, et qui relève de la comédie. Dédicacé au cardinal de Retz, le roman débute par l'arrivée d'une troupe de comédiens au Mans et raconte leurs aventures rocambolesques dans la ville et aux environs. Il comporte une série d'histoires enchâssées : la plupart sont des nouvelles espagnoles que Scarron a traduites et adaptées. Parmi ces histoires, la plus célèbre est celle du Destin, le nom de scène de Garrigues, et de L'Étoile, en réalité Mlle de La Boissière. Garrigues a rencontré Mlle de La Boissière à Rome, alors qu'un Français brutal tentait de lui arracher son voile. Il est tombé follement amoureux d'elle. Pour échapper à son rival, Garrigues emmène son aimée dans une troupe de comédiens rencontrée à Paris. Mais il est rattrapé par celui-ci, et de multiples aventures vont s'enchaîner. Aux différentes histoires d'amour enchâssées, Scarron a mêlé les épisodes les plus comiques, autour d'un personnage nain et niais, Ragotin, sorte de miroir dérisoire de Scarron lui-même, dont le corps malade était atrophié et contrefait. L'illustration profuse et spirituelle d'Edouard Zier est parfaitement adaptée au texte.Provenance : Ancienne collection Bertrand Hugonnard-Roche avec son paraphe BHR, 2013 à l'encre.

        L'Aveu, Drame en un Acte en Prose

      1888 - BERNHARDT, Sarah. L’Aveu. Drame en un Acte en Prose. Paris: Paul Ollendorff, 1888. Octavo, contemporary full brown morocco, raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, uncut. $2800.First edition, in French, of this one-act dramatic comedy, inscribed by Bernhardt in French to Lord Lytton on preliminary leaf: "To His Excellent Lord Lytton, my colleague in dreams, Sarah Bernhardt, 1890." Handsomely bound by Pierson.Sarah Bernhardt was the 19th century’s most famous actress. Known for the power of her acting as much as for her beauty, she captivated audiences in a wide variety of roles ranging from Joan of Arc to Cleopatra to the titular role in Hamlet. L’Aveu was one of Bernhardt’s own plays, produced in 1888 at the Odéon in Paris. Though it was not successful as some of Bernhardt better known plays, it was distinguished by Bernhardt’s personal dedication to it. Lytton was a successful playwright, poet (publishing under the name "Owen Meredith"), and diplomat, who served in India during the critical period of the Afghan War in the late 1870’s. Lytton undoubtedly met Bernhardt through their association with the theater.Very light scattered foxing to text, binding handsome. Near-fine condition, most desirable inscribed.
