      London: Macmillan, 1889. Carroll, Lewis (Charles L[utwidge] Dodgson). SYLVIE AND BRUNO [With:] SYLVIE AND BRUNO CONCLUDED. London: Macmillan, 1889 & 1893. First Editions. A perfectly matched VERY FINE, fresh set. Much is made by those in commerce about having SYLVIE AND BRUNO CONCLUDED in original dust jacket, yet it surely must be one of the most common 19th century dust jackets available (at any given time, one can usually find eight or ten online). What matters here is that the 1889 SYLVIE AND BRUNO is a stunning copy to match its 1893 sequel, a truly uncommon opportunity. The author considered these books to be his magnum opus and, having worked on them for over twenty years, was quite disappointed to be met with poor sales by a Victorian public seemingly desperate for another Alice. While it may be tempting to see these first editions as ideal door stops based on their length and ubiquitous presence in rare book catalogues, they are genuinely worthy of any decent Lewis Carroll collection and, in this condition, hopefully irresistible! Housed in an especially nice double slipcase.. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. VERY FINE. Illus. by Harry Furniss.

        Photo Album]: Canary Islands, Madeira, Bermuda, and the Caribbean

      Various 1889 - Large folio. Half leather ruled in gilt and paper covered boards. Boards stained and rubbed, internal foxing, some fading to some images but overall very good. 114 mostly larger albumen prints, mounted on card leaves (between one and four to a page; usually two), and numbered on the leaves below the image (the album is numbered to 120, with space left for the other six images, but those spaces are unnumbered and with no evidence that the images were ever mounted in the volume). Image sizes range mostly between 4" x 6" and 9" x 12". A fair number of the images have captions in the image, many others are captioned in ink on the mount. A wonderful album that begins in Portugal with nine images of the Coast of Funchal in Madeira (harbor views, various images of the public gardens, "bullock cart," and two men bearing a woman lying in a hammock), nine of Tenerife in the Canary Islands (La Laguna, Mount Teide, harbor views with ships, massive dragon tree,), and the Azores (two photos creating a panorama of the Ponta Delgada harbor, Church of St. Sebastian, hot springs, baths at Furnas); and then extends to several islands in the West Indies including 23 of Trinidad (Port of Spain, dock views, ice house, botanical gardens, date palms, government house, water works, and pitch lakes), 21 of Bermuda ("Devil's Hole" on the north coast, Mullet Bay in Tucker's Town, lily fields, stone quarry, floating dock, Princess Hotel), 17 of Jamaica (Kingston Harbor, Kingston street scenes, fruit sellers, barracks at Newcastle, Hamilton sugar workers), nine of Barbados (Bridgetown, cabbage palms, arrowroot mills, "Negroes Houses," sugar cane harvesting, collection and processing), four of Cuba (Havana, taxi driver, policeman, tobacco plantation), three each of the Bahamas ("convicts at work," sponge shipping), St. Lucia (harbor), two of St. Thomas (sailing ships), one of Martinique (harbor), and concluding with three of the harbor in Plymouth, England (lighthouse and sound). Near the end are also a group of portraits, possibly commercial images, of native islanders captioned below: "Negress," "Mulatto," Quadroon," "Native with 'Fer de lance [snake],'" and "Women wearing Capote."Of the 114 photographs only about a dozen can be credited. Seven of the images from Tenerife are marked in the negative "J.H.T.E." While little is could be found about J.H.T.E., our research did turned up an auction record for an album sold in the late '90s containing several of his images of Gran Canaria, and as well as a letter credited to the same initials in a 1876 issue of *The British Journal of Photography* asking about transporting dry photographic plates over long distances.The other photographer that can be identified is Jacob Frank Coonley, a sign painter turned photography from New York who, with partner George Bernard, worked for Matthew Brady for several years during the Civil War. Following the conflict he worked photographing railroad construction in Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia for the military, then in 1880 he worked with theatrical portraitist J.M. Moran, before relocating to Nassau in the Bahamas in 1889. While only three photographs are credited to "J.F. Coonley," we suspect three additional images of nearby Cuba might also be his workAn exceptional album of photographs. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Idylls of the King

      Henry Altemus, Philadelphia, 1889. Fine with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. First Printing. Hard Cover Publisher's full blue cloth, spine in six compartments separated by gilt borders, gilt lettering in two compartments, gilt devices in remainder, elaborate gilt, silver and black decoration on cover. Includes all 12 books, each with its own title page. Illustrated with 37 full-page, tissue-protected plates by Gustave Dore. Idylls of the King, published between 1859 and 1885, is a cycle of twelve narrative poems by the English poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892; Poet Laureate from 1850) which retells the legend of King Arthur, his knights, his love for Guinevere and her tragic betrayal of him, and the rise and fall of Arthur's kingdom. The whole work recounts Arthur's attempt and failure to lift up mankind and create a perfect kingdom, from his coming to power to his death at the hands of the traitor Mordred. Individual poems detail the deeds of various knights, including Lancelot, Geraint, Galahad, and Balin and Balan, and also Merlin and the Lady of the Lake. The Idylls are written in blank verse. Gustave Dore (1832-1883) is one of the most popular illustrators of all tme. He was a prolific engraver, artist, illustrator, and sculptor, working primarily as a wood and steel engraver. He produced over 100, 000 sketches in his lifetime, and lived to be 50 years old. Even though he was an untrained, self-taught artist, who never used a live model, and who could not sketch from nature, his work is considered some of the most important in the entire engraving art world. Although he illustrated over 200 books, some with more than 400 plates, he is primarily known for his illustrations to The Divine Comedy, particularly The Inferno, his illustrations to Don Quixote, Idylls of the King, and Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven. Expertly refurbished, tight, square and clean. All of the illustrations are in perfect condition. FINE. B Drawings. Folio 13" - 23" tall. 363 pp

His personal collection of early maps was given to the University of Helsinki, and has been inscribed on UNESCO's memory of the World Register.

Also present on the island are enslaved members a race of people who lived in the region long before the "creation of man." Includes a 200-foot long sea serpent that occasionally ventures out of sea and chases the natives, a fountain of youth which rejuvenates limbs put into it, a pool which petrifies flesh instantly, giant birds of prey with 30-foot wing spans, ruins of a vast uninhabited city of great antiquity at the north pole, and more.

        The Revision of the Statutes of the State of New York and the Revisers . An Address before the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, January 22, 1889. By William Allen Butler

      Banks & Brothers, New York and Albany 1889 - (10 3/4 x 8 1/4 inches). [2], ii, 100pp. 3 engraved portraits. Extra-illustrated with 10 letters (9 ALS, 1 TLS) on legal matters. Half dark blue crushed morocco and marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered and decorated in gilt. Provenance: Adrian Hoffman Joline (bookplate) Large paper edition, one of only 25 numbered copies: this copy extra-illustrated with letters by Butler, Duer, Spencer and others. The 1828 revision of the statutes of New York, undertaken by John Duer, Benjamin F. Butler and John C. Spencer, holds a celebrated status in the legal history of the state. It "was the first attempt to create and establish for any commonwealth governed by the English Common Law and by legislative statutes . of a body of written law systematically arranged, based on the principles of law as a science, regulating the exercise of public and private rights, establishing domestic, property and contract relations and covering the administration of every department of the government, without touching the integrity of the unwritten law, or transcending the proper bound of legislative control" (Goodrich, Restatement and Codification , p. 253). Fearing that the importance of the revision would be lost on future generations, William Allen Butler (B. F. Butler's son and a noted New York lawyer) organized portraits of the revisers to be commissioned and the present work published to detail the history of their project, as well as provide biographical details on their lives. The present issue is a rare large paper edition, limited to 25 numbered copies (this being number 19). An early owner of this copy has extra-illustrated the work with letters by William Allen Butler (3), Benjamin Franklin Butler (3) , Duer (1) and Spencer (1) Francis L. Stetson (1) and Thomas Addis Emmet (1), all on legal matters, some written to each other. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [The Chronicles of Barsetshire:]

      London: Chapman and Hall,, 1889?-91. The Warden; Barchester Towers; Doctor Thorne; Framley Parsonage; The Small House at Allington; The Last Chronicle of Barset. 6 works in 8 volumes, octavo (194 x 130 mm). Contemporary brown half calf for Sotheran & Co, twin red and tan morocco labels, spines richly gilt in compartments, brown cloth boards ruled in gilt, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. With wood-engraved frontispieces by F. A. Fraser. A few minor marks to cloth. An excellent set. An attractive set of the collected Chronicles of Barsetshire. Trollope was famously never published in a complete uniform edition and Chapman and Hall's collected Chronicles of Barsetshire, which was originally published in 1878, is the nearest attempt at a collected edition, aside from the Chapman and Hall and Ward, Lock and Co.'s cheaply produced editions. "The history of [Chapman & Hall's 1878 collected edition of the Chronicles of Basetshire] is not without interest. Trollope himself was very anxious that his Barsetshire novels should be brought together in a uniform series. Originally the venture was to comprise only six volumes, for he did not himself regard The Small House as one of the Barsetshire set; but he consented to its inclusion at the urgent request of Chapman & Hall" (Sadleir p. 245).

Seul le n° 1 est décrit par Maurice Artus : « N'a eu qu'un numéro qui est entièrement autographié (et très mal !). 1re page un très mauvais dessin représentant deux peintres dans une rue quelconque de la Butte. Légende : N'empêche qu'il est intelligent. ? En venant au monde il avait déjà sa fortune faite. 2e page, contenant un appel aux jeunes, qui débute par ces mots : « Notre programme », et se résume en 3 mots : l'Avenir des jeunes. Ensuite quelques lignes sur la Tour Solférino. Des vers de Bouissou : La Petite fleur. Un petit article de A. Le Mée, etc. Très rare ». En faite le contenu décrit par Artus est en page 4 avec en pied de page encarts publicitaires pour le Divan Japonais, Le Restaurant des pélerins et des étrangers L. Sauret, l'Imprimerie spéciale L. Sauret. Les pages 2 et 3 portent une petit pièce en, un acte un tableau, un acteur, dédié à l'ami Saturne : Ah, M.! signé Armand Le Mée. Le n° 2 est composé de la même façon : le dessin de la première page représente un homme et une femme pendu à un arbre en haut de la butte. La légende porte : Gibet de Montmartre. Elle était belle mais dédaignait les Artiste pauvres. - Il était propriétaire ! En 2e et 3e page un fac-similé d'une lettre d'Henry Murger accompagné d'une notice nécrologique ; en page 4, un poème La Fortune signés Ugène, et en pied de page les mêmes encarts publicitaires.

        A Nine Men's Morrice

      London Longmans, Green and Co. 1889. 8vo. 358pp. + 16pp ads. Publisher's deep red cloth titled in gilt to spine. Minor rubbing and edgewear to extremities, sunning to spine and light bumping to spine ends, a very good copy. Broughton Reading Room and Library labels to front flyleaf and the second blank leaf preceding the half title, which particular depredations of librarianship are only balanced by the fact that the book is inscribed by the author to the title page:#"With the author's kindest regards (as well as blotting paper will allow them to be written) Walter Herries Pollock."#Otherwise internally clean, with some thumbmarks here and there, a tight solid very good copy. Walter Herries Pollock is one of those forgotten characters of the 19th century literary scene; editor of The Saturday Review, published poet and critic, enthusiastic and successful amateur fencer and friends with all the glittering literati including Kipling, Stevenson and Wilde amongst others. He penned a biography of Henry Irving and generally put himself about a bit. This collection of weird and eerie tales is another to join the ranks of books that shouldn't have been forgotten but have, and Pollock is now best known for having written a biography of Jane Austen and collaborated in the revival of historical fencing techniques. Scarce.

        Notes sur le théorème de Bachet. 1889-1893

      - Manuscrit in-8 de 281 feuillets, demi-chagrin aubergine à coins de l’époque, dos à nerfs orné, tranches dorées, signet, , , , « Une fort belle démonstration du théorème de Bachet » Recueil de notes manuscrites inédites, de rares tirés à part ou d’extraits de Revue d’Adolphe Matrot concernant son explication et sa démonstration du théorème de Bachet. Dans l’histoire de l’arithmétique théorique, Bachet de Méziriac joue un rôle essentiel. Dans les commentaires de son édition de Diophante d’Alexandrie, qu’il publia en 1621 à Paris, il posa, afin de résoudre les équations diophantiennes du premier degré, le théorème qui stipule que tout nombre entier est ou bien un carré, ou bien composé de deux, trois ou quatre carrés. Véritable pierre de touche de la théorie des nombres, ce théorème stimula et excita l’analyse de quelques grands mathématiciens : Fermat au XVIIe (qui en déduit son petit et grand théorème, son équation et ses nombres), Euler au XVIIIe (qui démontrât le grand théorème de Fermat, et s’approcha de la démonstration du théorème de Bachet en élucidant le 6e nombre de Fermat), puis enfin Lagrange (qui, en 1770, démontra la théorème de Bachet, vieux de 150 ans, démonstration reprise et améliorée par Euler en 1776). Adolphe Matrot (1841-1896), major de polytechnique et ingénieur en chef des Mines de Paris s’intéressa, à la fin des années 1880, à la décomposition des nombres entiers. Il rédigea, en 1889, une note ("Notions sur les résidus quadratiques") comme complément au Cours d’arithmétique de Combette. Matrot ignorait alors les recherches d’Euler et Lagrange. Edmond Lucas (professeur de mathématiques au Lycée Saint-Louis et auteur, en 1891, d’une « Théorie des nombres »), ayant eu connaissance des recherches de Matrot, lui adressa un billet (présent au sein du présent recueil) l’encouragement à poursuivre ses recherches d’arithmétiques. Matrot approfondit alors ses recherches en publiant et présentant, sous diverses formes, ses résultats entre 1889 et 1890. En décembre 1890, commençant la lecture des mémoires de Lagrange et Euler, il réussit à démontrer à plusieurs reprises entre 1891 et 1893, et sous des formes différentes, le théorème de Bachet. Il poussa son analyse jusqu’à la démonstration du lemme relatif aux diviseurs d’une somme de quatre carrés. Lucas, en introduction de sa Théorie des nombres (1891) qualifiait la démonstration de Matrot de « fort belle ». Le présent recueil, établit par Matrot lui-même recompose l’histoire de ses propres découvertes d’arithmétique. Il se compose de versions manuscrites inédites et d’imprimés peu communs : -Notion sur les résidus quadratiques. Décomposition d’un nombre entier en une somme de carrés entiers (manuscrit d’un supplément à l’Arithmétique de Combette, décembre 1889) ; -Décomposition d’un nombre entier en une somme de carrés entiers : Variante [Supplément à la note précédente] (manuscrit, mars 1890) -Exposé élémentaire de la théorie des résidus quadratique (manuscrit, mars 1890, comprenant des variantes en rouge de l’auteur, pouvant « prendre place dans un cours élémentaire d’Arithmétique ») ; -Sur la décomposition d’un entier quelconque en une somme de carrés. Sur les résidus quadratiques (extrait de la Revue de l’Association française pour l’avancement des sciences, Congrès de Limoges, août 1890) ; -Démonstration du Théorème de Lagrange sur l’équation At2 + Bu2 + C= mep (note manuscrite, avril 1890) ; -Démonstration élémentaire du théorème de Bachet, Paris, Nony, 1891 (plaquette séparée) ; -Démonstration élémentaire du théorème de Bachet, Paris, Delagrave, 1891 (tiré à part extrait du Journal de mathématiques élémentaires ; nouvelle rédaction de la précédent publication) ; -Sur le théorème de Bachet. Aperçu historique (extrait de la Revue de l’Assocation française pour l’avancement des sciences, Congrès de Marseille, 1891) -Théorème de Bachet - Note sur la démonstration du lemme relatif aux diviseurs d’une somme de quatre carrés (note manuscrite, mai 1892) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Among Cannibals An Account Of Four Years' Travels In Australia And Of Camp Life With The Aborigines Of Queensland

      London: John Murray, 1889., 1889. 8vo. pp. xx, 395 + 28(Publisher's Catalogue). with half-title. 2 folding coloured maps, 29 plates (incl. frontis. portrait & 4 coloured lithographs), & numerous text illus. original gilt-stamped cloth (bit soiled, extremities slightly frayed, bookplate removed & rubberstamp erased from lower margin of title, frontis. rehinged). First Edition of the English Translation. The Norwegian naturalist's expedition to Australia, 1880-84, was undertaken partly at the expense of the University of Christiania, with the object of making collections for the zoological and zootomical museums of the University, and of researching the manners and anthropology of the little-known native tribes. One year was spent among the cannibal tribes living several hundred miles north of Townsville. Lumholtz succeeded in securing a large collection of zoological specimens, and discovered four new mammals - a tree kangaroo and three opposums, which are depicted in the coloured lithographed plates.

        Looking Backward 2000-1887

      Ticknor and Company, Boston 1889 - A lovely early rebind (by Case, Lockwood & Brainard, Hartford), half leather over marbled paper-covered boards, with peach endpapers, of the stated "sixteenth edition" (meaning "sixteenth printing," in modern parlance) of Bellamy's "utopian" novel, of a future America where no need is seen for money or wages, since the great collective simply distributes to every person what he or she needs, even replacing ridiculous "individual" umbrellas with a vast collective rain shield when it rains. (Whether the trees and flowers consider this "utopian" is not revealed.) An ever-popular collectivist fantasy (see the similarly cashless, wageless society of Gene Roddenberry's initial "Star Trek") though the author might have thought to consider the history of virtually every early American colony, including the Massachusetts Bay, where Gov. William Bradford reported the colonists went hungry for years because they refused to work in the fields, preferring instead to steal other people's crops before they were ripe. But then, in 1623, Gov. Bradford reported that "Instead of famine now God gave them plenty, and the face of things was changed, to the rejoicing of the hearts of many, for which they blessed God." What had happened? Why, in 1623 Bradford simply replaced the earlier "utopian" system of collectivism, in which everyone was to take what they needed from the empty storerooms of "the common stock," and instead "gave each household a parcel of land and told them they could keep what they produced, or trade it away as they saw fit." Their "early form of socialism" was "why the Pilgrims were starving," explains historian Richard J. Marbury. But then Gov. Bradford "abolished socialism" in the colony, "replacing it with a free market, and that was the end of famines." Or, to let economist Thomas Sowell summarize (from his book "Marxism: Philosophy and Economics"): "The disjuncture between vision and experience was nowhere better illustrated than in the traumatic post-revolutionary experience of Lenin, as he applied the Marxist vision and watched a whole nation sink into economic chaos and starvation by the millions." Reality can be SO inconvenient. Still a significant piece of early American science fiction, no matter how wrongheaded. Previous owner Cora E. Andrus has dated this copy to top of title page "1889." (Copyright reads 1888.) Top board corners are peeking through the leather. 470 pp. followed by 8 pp. of ads, mostly for other Ticknor & Co. titles, but also including wonderful ads for a bristle-free felt tooth polisher and for the Boston Pants Co., 111 Chauncy St. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
