        HOLY LAND. From Original Drawing by David Roberts, R.A. [After Lithographs by Louis Haghe] With Historical Descriptions by the Rev. George Crowly, LL.D.

      London: Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co., [ca. 1889]. 2 volumes, bound as one, containing sections; Jerusalem and Galilee; Jordan and Bethlehem; Idumea & Petra. With a total of 120 fine lithographic tinted plates from Roberts' drawings done on the scene. 4to, in fine three-quarter red morocco over red textured cloth boards, the spine with flat bands of double-ruled gilt, gilt lettered in one compartment, printed endpapers, a.e.g. viii, 85; 36 pp. A handsome copy, the binding well preserved with only a bit of unobtrusive spotting to the cloth, solid and strong, unusual for these large heavy books. The paper quite fresh and fine with only very minor light foxing occasionally present and far less then typically encountered. With the general title and one of the divisional title-pages included, that for section three, which along with section three's preliminary material is bound in the front. The three page 'notice of the journey', the list of subjects for parts one and two, and the three pages of introductory text to section 2 are not included. VERY EARLY ISSUE OF THE QUARTO EDITION WITH 120 PLATES REPRODUCED FROM One of the most desirable of all travel and plate books. Roberts' original folio volumes from the 1840 rank among the most costly of illustrated travel books. Their popularity let to the production of a series of more affordable quarto volumes, of which the volume offered here is one. In the course of two and a half months in 1838, traveling some 800 miles south from Cairo, Roberts recorded the monumental temple sites along the Nile in more than a hundred sketches. He headed on to to Petra and Mount Sinai, and then throughout the Holy Land and the areas of historical and religious importance which were held sacred to Christians, Jews and Muslims alike. As the first British artist to sketch the monuments of Ancient Egypt, set on "Plains so vast...that, until you come near them, you have no idea of their magnificence," Roberts was well aware of the stir his drawings would create in London. According to John Ruskin, writing in PRAETERITA, Roberts's drawings "were the first studies ever made conscientiously by an English painter, not to exhibit his own skill, but to give true portraiture of scenes of historical and religious interest.

First editions of each volume in Andrew Lang's Fairy Books: Blue (1889); Red (1890); Green (1892); Yellow (1894); Pink; (1897); Grey (1900); Violet (1901); Crimson (1903); Brown (1904); Orange (1906); Olive (1907); Lilac (1910) (12 volumes), along with eight of his other works: The Blue Poetry Book (1891); The True Story Book (1893); The Red True Story Book (1895); The Animal Story Book (1896); The Arabian Nights Entertainments (1898); The Red Book of Animal Stories (1899); The Book of Romance (1902); The Red Romance Book (1905).

Each volume bound with the original cloth spine and front panel. With numerous illustrations by H. J. Ford. In near fine condition. An exceptional set bound by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. Andrew Lang's Fairy Books are a series of twelve collections of fairy tales, published between 1889 and 1910. Each volume is distinguished by its own color. In all, 437 tales from a range of cultures and countries are presented. Lang's urge to gather and publish fairy tales was rooted in his own experience with the folk and fairy tales of his home territory along the English-Scottish border. At the time he worked, English fairy-tale collections were rare: Dinah Maria Mulock Craik's The Fairy Book (1869) was a lonely precedent. When Lang began his efforts, he "was fighting against the critics and educationists of the day", who judged the traditional tales' "unreality, brutality, and escapism to be harmful for young readers, while holding that such stories were beneath the serious consideration of those of mature age" (Roger Lancelyn Green).

        Apache Kid and Prisoners Boudoir Card

      - A very scarce boudoir card with Haskaybaynayntayl, or the Apache Kid, from just before his final escape. No date, circa 1890s. Image is in very good condition with the photo measuring 4 3/8" x 6 7/8". There is some loss of paper on the right edge of the mount and the word "Dup" in ink. The caption and publication information on the back are covered by newspaper articles with a discard mark from the Sharlott Hall Museum in Prescott, Arizona with some handwritten notes. This photograph taken at Globe, Arizona has ten prisoners in it, with notations of their names and tribes in the photo. The Apache Kid is the second from the right in the top row, in this last known photograph of him. The article on the back describes the famous November 2, 1889 escape of eight of the prisoners while being transported to Yuma and their killing of Sheriff Reynolds and W. A. Holmes in the escape. The Apache Kid was one of the few escapees that survived very long, and his raids and sightings of him continued until 1894. No records of photo cards were found on OCLC, although the extracted image of the Apache Kid is well known. ; 5 1/4" x 8 1/2"

        The English Gypsy Word Book; Being George Borrow's Romany Vocabulary Transposed.

      London Taylor and Francis 1889. 8vo. Printed for Private Circulation. 94pp. Bound in publisher's quarter red morocco with dark red title label to spine over yellow and black striped cloth boards (although the black is closer to dark brown pebble grained cloth). All edges are coloured to match the tricolore design.Minor edgewear and scuffing, gilt ruling to spine, a little dustiness here and there but essentially a very good, strong copy. Marbled endpapers, bearing the bookplate of John Quinn, (possibly the patron to Augustus John; who had a particular fascination with the British Romany) to front pastedown. A privately printed, rare and unusual extraction of the Romany volcabularly from the Romano Lavo-Lil and subsequent works. More a Romany vocabulary rather than a dictionary, with no detail pertaining to grammar, pronunciation or dialectical differences. It is clearly quite a deluxe production, attractively printed and, like all of Borrow's gypsy related gleanings, instantly fascinating. There will inevitably be inaccuracies, over romanticisings and downright bigotry attached to the history of British and European Roma, gypsies and travellers, but Borrow, essentially sympathetic, and certainly entranced, contributed at least some complexity and cultural depth to groups that previously were described in terms of suspicion, fear or as outcasts. It is insome ways quite ironic that the entire 19th century, with it's tremendous need for regimented progress, generally punitive reactions and strict social castes and systems, should also have been the age of the unrestrained romanticisation of the exile and the pariah; from the gothic to the pseudo-scientific, a public consciousness surrounded by the increasing vigour of the urban and industrial moved by inclination towards the deep woods and the high passes. Whilst Borrow and his contemporaries may have done as much to parody a culture as to preserve its history, it is through works like this that at least some remnants of a period voice remains.

Of the 269 dated plein air paintings spanning from 1918 to 1974 that I have documented in private collections and in museums, 58 are from 1932-1934, the two year period before he began to work at the American Museum of Natural History. A mystery from this time is that Wilson took a class in 1932 at the Arts Student League with John Carlson. This is the only painting class to my knowledge ever taken by Wilson. He was 43 years old and had already been painting in his mature painting style for decades

        TRAITÉ D'OPTIQUE. [3 volumes].

      1889 - Paris, Gauthier-Villars, Masson, 1889-93. Trois volumes grand in-8 (175 X 257) demi-chagrin havane foncé, cinq nerfs filetés à froid, caissons à froid ornés d'un fleuron doré, auteur, titre et tomaison dorés (reliure de l'époque). Tome I : VIII-638 pages, 2 planches dépliantes - Tome II : VI-643 pages - Tome III : (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre, 692 pages. Coiffe supérieure et début de fente au mors supérieur du tome III, restaurés ; la teinte du dos du tome III est plus foncée. ÉDITION ORIGINALE de ce MAGISTRAL TRAITÉ contenant 2 PLANCHES dépliantes gravées sur vélin fort par C. Legros et E. Morieu : «Spectre prismatique et spectre normal du Soleil » et «Triangle des couleurs », ainsi que de très nombreuses figures dans le texte. Eleuthère Elie Nicolas MASCART (1837-1908), physicien français, fut pendant 36 ans titulaire de la chaire de Physique générale et expérimentale au Collège de France. «Au travail de ses recherches et de son enseignement qui lui avaient donné de l'optique une connaissance si complète, il ajouta l'effort de publier, entre 1889 et 1893, alors qu'il était déjà pris par d'autres préoccupations, son magistral "Traité d'optique", en trois gros volumes, où il a dépouillé, ordonné et exposé avec une clarté parfaite l'oeuvre d'un siècle sur un sujet difficile et fécond. C'est vraiment l'ouvrage le plus complet que nous possédions sur l'Optique physique, le bilan de la théorie ondulatoire telle que l'avaient conçue Fresnel et ses précurseurs. » (Paul Langevin, "Annales de l'École des Mines"). Exemplaire en bel état, conservé dans sa solide reliure de l'époque et au corps d'ouvrage très frais. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        SYLVIE AND BRUNO [With:] SYLVIE AND BRUNO CONCLUDED (Very Fine Set,)

      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]
