        On the Geographical Distribution of Some Tropical Diseases, and their Relation to Physical Phenomena.

      Edinburgh & London: Young J. Pentland, 1889 - Octavo. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine, drab green endpapers. Spine rolled, spine and periphery of back cover sunned, back inner hinge split but sound, boards a little splayed. 16 coloured folding maps showing the distribution of tropical diseases across the globe. First edition, scarce. Robert William Felkin ()1853-1926) was a medical missionary, a prolific author on Uganda and Central Africa, an early anthropologist with an interest in ethnomedicine and tropical diseases, and a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. "An interesting example [of the use of medical maps] is by R. W. Felkin, lecturer on the diseases of the tropics and climatology in Edinburgh. His book On the Geographical Distribution of Some Tropical Diseases, and their Relation to Physical Phenomena (1889) is unusual in that, following the logic of the medicine of hot climates, it dispenses with diseases in temperate areas altogether, in order to focus entirely on mapping some of the major diseases considered tropical, something that Felkin claimed no other maps had done. Felkin's short book on medical climatology is also useful in giving us a snapshot of the diseases defining the 'medicine of hot climates' in the 1880s, before 'tropical medicine' emerged as an institutional discipline" (Nancy Leys Stepan, Picturing Tropical Nature, 2001, pp. 162-63).

        Notice sur le manuscrit de la première traduction de la chronique d'Abulghâsi-Behâder.

      Stockholm, P. A. Norstedt & söner, 1889. 14,(2 blanka) s. Fint häftat exemplar med den ursprungliga blå ryggremsan, som är lite defekt längst ned. Ett par mycket ljusa fläckar på de inledande tre bladen och småfläckar på baksidan. Bra ex.. Zetterlund I:46. Enligt denne trycktes skriften i endast 15 exemplar, en uppgift som av allt att döma inte är korrekt. Skriften var tänkt att delas ut av författaren i samband med orientalistkongressen i Stockholm detta år. Strindberg hade nyss återkommit till Sverige efter att ha vistats utomlands sedan 1883. I ett brev till brodern Axel skriver han: "Nu måste jag söka genvägar och utmärka mig både här och der. Ett lämpligt tillfälle är orientalistkongressen i september."

        Trials of Zulu Chiefs in re Disturbances in Zululand, 1888-9

      Bishopstowe: [Printed by Harriette Colenso], ?1889. Duodecimo (163 × 102 mm). Original drab wraps, manuscript title page as above. Housed in ochre cloth drop-back box, red morocco label to the spine. Rubbed, lacks top third of the spine, occasional slight cracking of the binding internally, some light browning, one or two stains, about very good. Extremely uncommon reprint of of the official London-published Report of the Proceedings of the Court of Special Commissioners for Zululand, produced by Harriette Colenso on the press installed at Bishopstowe by her father John William Colenso, Bishop of Natal. No copies recorded on OCLC, SABIB has Durban Public Library only. "On the death of Bishop Colenso in June 1883, Harriette Colenso became the acknowledged family leader … Like her father after 1873, Harriette Colenso was bitterly opposed to arbitrary white authority over the black population of Natal, and she undertook decades of controversy on behalf of the Zulu people … She supported Dinizulu ka Cetshwayo, as the son of the man her father befriended … During many Zulu crises, Harriette's voluminous letters, inter alia to the Aborigines Protection Society, her use of the Bishopstowe press, and her political pamphlets … were evidence of her commitment … She later gave evidence to important government commissions of inquiry and was well known to some of the early leaders of the African National Congress … Nevertheless, the Zulu people lost more and more land. Dinizulu was twice arraigned before special—and suspect—courts in 1888?-9 and 1908?-9. After conviction at Eshowe in 1889, Dinizulu and two uncles were sent to St Helena, where Harriette Colenso twice visited them … Dinizulu was arrested again in 1907 after the Bambatha uprising and sentenced to imprisonment for harbouring dependants of a rebel leader. At both trials Harriette devoted money, energy, intellect, and legal acumen to the defence, attended the court proceedings assiduously, and encouraged appeals to Britain" (ODNB) This one of only two known copies, both of which end mid-sentence on page 340. A pencilled note tipped onto the verso of the upper wrap, reads "Refer to Natal Mercury 7.4.74. Miss Colenso told me that all these books were bound up short - Wm. Osborn." When it appeared at the Keynes Sale, the author of this note was misidentified as Sir Melmoth Osborn, the first British Chief Native Commissioner for Zululand, whereas William Osborn was at this time the librarian of Durban Public Library. An important and substantial piece from the "propaganda" press of the foremost nineteenth-century advocates of indigenous rights in South Africa.

        The Nursery "Alice" containing twenty coloured enlargements from Tenniel's Illustrations to "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" with text adapted to nursery readers

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1889. Quarto. Original white cloth-backed pictorial boards, titles to front cover in red and black, orange endpapers. Mechanical enlargements of 20 of John Tenniel's illustrations, enlarged from the originals and printed in colour; text printed in brown ink. Cover illustrations by E. G. Thomson. Wear to corners and head and foot of spine, spine darkened, some light foxing to preliminaries, some internal finger marks, diagonal crease to page 36. First edition, first impression, third state, with the original illustration of Alice and the Cheshire Cat on page 34 with Alice's profile visible, overpriced with two shillings on the title page. Genuinely rare thus: copies are overwhelmingly met with in the second printing. Ten thousand copies of the first print run were printed by Edward Evans on toned paper. Dodgson rejected the entire edition in sheets as the pictures were "far too bright and gaudy" and instructed they should be reprinted. The casings prepared had Alice asleep beneath a tree on the front cover and a picture of the March Hare on the back. Four thousand copies of the rejected sheets were sent to the States and the book was published with a tipped-in preliminary leaf and title page dated 1890. In 1891 after the publication of the reprinted edition, some of the original copies were bound up and overprinted "People's Edition, Price Two Shillings" on the title page, as is this copy.

Envoi autographe signé de Paul Verlaine à Edmond Bonnaffé à la justification du tirage in-fine, "Exemplaire de Monsieur E. Bonnaffé. P. Verlaine". Edmond Bonnaffé (1825-1903) était un riche collectionneur et un historien de l'art renommé, très proche des mouvements artistiques de son époque. Ces pages de Verlaine sont un compte-rendu critique du livre de Roger Marx qui porte le même titre (Paris, 1890). Le poète y évoque les grands noms de l'Art Nouveau, tels que Bapst, Chaplet ou encore Gallé. Mais surtout, il y écrit sa célèbre condamnation de la Tour Eiffel : "ce squelette de beffroi, qui ne survivra pas, bien et mille fois au contraire, aux archi-centenaires des Flandres françaises et belges..." En effet, le 14 février 1887, Paul Verlaine avait signé un manifeste de protestation publié par Le Temps avec d'autres personnalités du monde des arts et des lettres parmi lesquelles Charles-Marie-René Leconte de Lisle, Guy de Maupassant, Alexandre Dumas fils, Sully Prudhomme... Ouvrage illustré de figures dans le texte. Rare et agréable exemplaire. Provenances : bibliothèques Edmond Bonnaffé (ex-dono), André Lefèvre (vente à Paris le 16 novembre 1966), Colonel Daniel Sickles (vente à Paris les 28 & 29 octobre 1992), Edouard-Henri Fischer.

        Australia Twice Traversed

      London: Sampson Low and Co., 1889. Two volumes, octavo, with 21 plates, six folding coloured maps and illustrations in the text; inscribed "David W. Carnegie W.A. 1897" on half-titles of both volumes; in the fully pictorial grey-green cloth boards, lettered in gilt; spines slightly aged, a very good copy. A wonderful association copy of Giles's famous book.Australia Twice Traversed represents the collected narratives of Ernest Giles's five expeditions through central and western Australia from 1872 to 1876. Giles struggled repeatedly to find an overland route to Western Australia, but it was not until his expedition of 1875-6 that he achieved the extraordinary feat of crossing the continent from South to Western Australia, via the Great Victoria Desert, and returning via Gibson's Desert (which he had earlier named after one of his men). Australia Twice Traversed is among the most handsome of nineteenth-century Australian books, and one of the most popular of all Australian exploration accounts.This copy belonged to the great Australian explorer David Carnegie, and was in a small collection of Carnegie material that remained in the hands of his descendants until the 1980s. It has since been in the library of a prominent New South Wales book collector.
