        Matabele Land and the Victoria Falls: A Naturalist's Wanderings in the Interior of South Africa. From the Letters and Journals of the late Frank Oates, F.R.G.S. Edited by C.G. Oates, B.A.

      London: Kegan Paul, Trench, and Co., . Second edition. 1889 - Pp. xlii, (1, contents), (3, list of illustrations), 433; engraved frontispiece portrait of Oates, 6 fine chromolithograph plates of scenic views, 39 black-and-white woodcut text-figures, 14 fine hand-colored plates (2 of birds by Keulemans, 2 of snakes by Mintern, 5 of insects from drawings by Westwood, and 5 botanical plates from drawings by W.H. Fitch, 4 folding maps (3 are partly colored route maps, and 1 is a large regional hand-colored map at the rear). Publisher's original highly decorated green cloth with landscape scene of zebras at sunset on front cover and with gilt bustard on the rear cover, spine is lettered in gilt and decorated with oryx horns in brown and gilt, original dark green clay-coated endpapers, thick lg 8vo (230 x 150 mm). This volume is from the Oates family with three different bookplates of family members, William Edward Oates, 1897, Robert Washington Oates and Frank Oates, O.B.E. on the endpapers. There is also a 'in memoriam' card for Frank Oates, 1840-1875 showing Victoria Falls, attached to a blank endpaper. This is the second and best edition with additions, corrections, and two additional plates). Frank went to Africa to observe and learn; he especially wanted to see Victoria Falls which had been seen by only a few Englishman before him. For Oates the Falls were fatally beautiful; he contracted "fever," that catch-all description for many tropical maladies, and succumbed only days after leaving the Zambesi. According to his brother, birds had been Frank Oates' "ruling passion" since childhood, and one thing he did accomplish on the trip was gather a meticulously documented collection of 213 species of birds, described by R. Bowdler-Sharpe in an appendix, accompanied by two color plates by Keulemans. This volume, compiled and edited by his brother from journals and letters, suffers a bit from being fragmentary and unpolished but it represents at interesting early chapter in the exploration of Africa. A touch of scattered foxing to the title page, some tissue guards and to the rear (blank) side of some maps, the fine chromolithographs and beautiful hand-colored plates are bright and clean as is the text and the attractive cloth binding; a tight and clean copy in near fine condition.

        The Manitoba Gazette / Gazzette De Manitoba January to December 1889

      Winnipeg: Theophane Bertrand, Queen's Printer, 1889. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. RARE MANITOBA GAZETTE WITH THE CONTROVERSIAL ENGLISH ONLY TRANSITIONBound volume containing weekly Gazettes dated from January 5, 1889 to December 21, 1889 inclusive. Dark board cover. Rubbed boards with a small broken edge to top of back cover, worn corners, and slight wear to ends of spine. Speckling to inside front and back, but gazette pages are age toned. Page [299]-300 small section of page in top missing paper affecting some words. Condition is very good otherwise. A rare 1889 Manitoba Gazette publication that includes the controversial publication transition with the bilingual edition ending on August 31, 1889 and the English only Gazette starting on September 7, 1889. Beyond that, there are many laws and weekly news during the year of 1889 in Manitoba. Quite an interesting and historically important set of 1889 Manitoba Gazettes. As French declined in importance, English-speaking Manitobansincreasingly objected to the maintenance of bilingualism in the Legislature and Courts of the province, on the grounds that it was irrelevant, cumbersome and expensive. The Liberal government of Premier Thomas Greenway, which took office after the general election of 1888, responded to this sentiment by sponsoring changes in the province's language laws. By Order in Council in September 1889, the government suspended publication of the French part of the Manitoba Gazette. This action, it might be argued, was not in conflict with section 23 of the Manitoba Act because the Manitoba Gazette was not a record, journal or act of the Legislature. The Gazette had, however, been published in both languages since the province was establishedin 1870 and the change to English only was a first step towards makingthe province officially unilingual.Text in English and French, Mar. 6, 1880-Aug. 31, 1889; includes some text in French, Sept. 7, 1889- Early Manitoba Government Gazettes are a scarce, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Canada. They were published by the government as a means of communication to officials and the general public and therefore contain information that is of great use in establishing an image of the Province of Manitoba and its people in the past. They contain many thousands of names and places and information from a whole cross section of the community.Issued weekly with occasional special issues, the Manitoba Gazette contains information such as proclamations, land transactions, court notices, notice of acts, public notices, tenders, appointments and resignations, bankrupt and insolvency notices, impoundments, police auctions, unclaimed letters, licenses (publican's, wine and beer, storekeeper's, occupation, and depasturing), notices of protection, dissolution of partnerships, rewards on offer, and more, in both English and French.

        Sport or Fishing and Shooting

      Boston: Bradlee Whidden, 1889. First edition. 15 chromolithographic plates after Frederic Remington, A.B. Frost, Fred Cozzens and others. 32 ff. letterpress. 1 vols. Folio (21-1/2 x 15-1/4 inches). Period style red straight-grained morocco, spinegilt with raised bands in seven compartments, titled in gilt, brown endpapers. Rare large-format work on sport in late 19th-century America, including Frederic Remington's first two published prints in color, a rare A.B. Frost image of deer-hunting and images from Fred. S. Cozzens and other top illustrators of the day. The plates (with titles taken from the preceding text leaf ) are as follows: 1. Killing the Salmon. Henry Sandham. 2. A Moose hunt. Henry Sandham. 3. Trout fishing. Henry Sandham. 4. Fly-fishing for Black Bass. S.F. Denton. 5. Hunting Antelope [i.e. Prong-horn]. Frederic Remington. 6. Catching a Tarpon. Fred. S. Cozzens. 7. Mallard shooting. S.F. Denton. 8. Catching a Mascalonge. Frank H.Taylor. 9. A Wild Turkey hunt. R.J. Zogbaum. 10. Sailing for Bluefish. Fred S. Cozzens. 11. Hunting the [Virginia] Deer. A.B. Frost. 12. A day with the [Prairie] Chickens. R.F. Zogbaum. 13. A hunt above the timber-line [Big-horn]. Edward Knobel. 14. [Canada] Goose shooting. Frederic Remington. 15. Stalking the Wapiti. Henry Sandham. The two plates by Frederic Remington, 'Hunting Antelope' (Hassrick & Webster 434) and 'Goose Shooting' (Hassrick & Webster 435) are also listed by Peggy and Harold Samuels (Remington The Complete Prints New York, 1990 pp.152-3) with the comment that they are the first and second Remington prints to appear in color. They were preceded only by a series of four monochrome photogravures for John Muir's Picturesque California (1888) and two other individual prints, both black and white. Arthur Burdett Frost is now perhaps best known for his sporting pictures and prints, but his lack of interest in deer-hunting meant that he rarely pictured shooting scenes that featured anything other than small game. His image, 'Hunting the Deer', is recorded, and illustrated, in Henry M. Reed's The A.B. Frost Book (Charleston, 1993, pp.101, 104-5) but the author was apparently unaware that it was issued as part of the present work, which is not included in the extensive appendix of books illustrated by Frost. The present work includes six angling plates (three of fly-fishing), four plates of game-bird hunting and five of hunting larger game. Each of the fifteen subjects is first described in general terms on a single leaf of text, followed by a second leaf giving a first-hand account of catching or shooting the subject, followed by a chromolithograph illustrating the first-hand account. According to Gould's preface, the plates are all from water-colours especially commissioned for the work which were subjected to the critical scrutiny of a group of anglers/sportsmen, who judged them for technical accuracy.

A pamphleteer and writer about "secularist" ideas, he adopted the pseudonym "Iconoclast". He was involved with various reformist causes such as the then controversial anti-establishment causes of birth control, republicanism, trade unionism, woman's suffrage, atheism, and anti-imperialism. ***In 1876 he set up the Freethought Publishing Company publishing Charles Knowlton's pamphlet advocating birth control: "The Fruits of Philosophy, or: the Private Companion of Young Married People". In 1876 - the previous British publisher having been successfully prosecuted for obscenity - Charles Bradlaugh and Annie Besant were subsequently convicted for publishing an obscene publication; but the case was dismissed on a technicality in 1878. Charles Bradlaugh was evicted from the House of Commons in 1880 after his first attempt to take his seat as the elected representative for Northampton. Bradlaugh was taken to the small prison cell located under Big Ben in the Clock Tower. Between 1880 and 1886 Bradlaugh fought for the right to sit in the House of Commons, and he became the first atheist to become an MP. His Act of 1888 established the legal right to affirm the Parliamentary oath rather than swearing the oath on a bible. ***An extremely scarce first impression of the true first edition in book-form in its original hardback quarter-leather binding. No known original edition for sale worldwide. ***Of interest to parliamentarians, scholars and historians researching the rules, customs, and procedure of the House of Commons, and collectors of rare antiquarian first editions, this is a scarce landmark historic title. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Nietzsche Contra Wagner

      NIETZSCHE, Friedrich.Nietzsche contra Wagner, Naumann, Leipzig, 1889. TP + 1 leaf + Vorwort + 1-[42], Octavo. First Edition, (Schaberg 57). Nietzsche contra Wagner was one of Nietzsche's final productions before he slipped into insanity, Iit was the last work that he was able to proof and correct before publication. The book is an assemblage of Nietzsche's writings on Wagner, selected from the books he had already published, but with many of the entries re-edited by Nietzsche for their inclusion here. For Nietzsche, Wagner represented the incarnation of the central problem of his time. On the one hand, Wagner was living proof that human greatness could still exist in a non-heroic age, while on the other, he exemplified, in his submission to the blandishments of power, a painful object lesson in the perils that a great spirit must elude if it is to fulfill his dream of self-realization. Once the corrected manuscript was in the publisher hands, there was much confusion over what should be done about the printing given the fact that the philosopher was now in a Basel psychiatric institution. Nietzsche's friend, Peter Gast, suggested several changes to the text, but actively urged publication while his other great friend, Overbeck, was shocked by what he read in the book and pleaded that any publication of the text would be a grave disservice to Nietzsche.In the end, Naumann privately printed just 100 copies of the work as Nietzsche had corrected it, giving 25 copies to Overbeck and the other 75 to Gast to be given to Nietzsche's friends. Contemporary marbled boards, lightly scuffed. Restored handwritten spine label and renewed endpapers. Very good+. More photos available upon request,

        Psycho-Therapeutics; or, Treatment by Sleep and Suggestion

      London, Baillière, Tindall, and Cox, , 1889. Octavo, original green cloth, title gilt to spine, blind panels to the boards. Illustrations to the text. Light shelf-wear, internal binding a little cracked in a couple of places, but overall very good. First edition. Extremely uncommon. This important and influential work ran into seven editions by 1921, this first edition being remarkably difficult to come by. The first book in English on psychotherapy in the modern sense, Tuckey introduced Liebault's method to English-speaking psychopathologists. "The first English medical man to adopt the Nancy form of treatment seems to have been C. Lloyd Tuckey who first visited 'dear old Dr. Liebault,' and then Bernheim, Berillon and van Renterghem, in the autumn of 1888" (Gauld, A History of Hypnotism, p. 349). "This treatise on hypnotism as a therapeutic agent, which went through many greatly expanded editions, emphasizes the influence of the mind on the body and the beneficial effects of hypnotic suggestion on many kinds of diseases" (Crabtree). According to Tuckey, hypnotism should be "Practised by looking fixedly and pertinaciously into the subject's eyes at a distance of a few inches, and at the same time holding the hands. In a few minutes all expression goes out of the face, and the subject sees nothing but the operator's eyes, which shine with intense brilliancy." "Historians believe that the first use of the word 'psychotherapy' in a book title came with the English hypnotist Charles Lloyd Tuckey's Psycho-therapeutics, or Treatment by Hypnotism & Suggestion (1889). Tuckey popularised the use of the word 'psychotherapy' as a synonym for the hypnotherapy of Hippolyte Bernheim's Nancy school in France, and attributes the discovery of 'psychotherapy' as a discipline to Liébault, its founder."

Bound in contemp. giltstamped auburn full calf (378 x 280 mm; spine rebacked). All edges gilt. Photographic record of a journey begun in Australia and taken, via Aden, through the Suez canal and to the Mediterranean (and then on to England). While the first image shows the steamship R.M.S. Ormuz in the port of Sydney, three images (including a double-page spread) show the port of Aden in Yemen, the famous water tanks, and a native of the Southern Arabian region in a studio portrait. The majority of the album is dedicated to Egypt, showing Arabs on their camels, the Khedive's Ismailia Palace, the Suez Canal, Port Said, and members the local population, as well as the famous pyramids. The last few photographs show the final leg of the journey: Naples, and ultimately Gibraltar. Among the studios identified in the photographs are those of Hippolyte Arnoux and the Zangaki brothers, based at Port Said. A slightly later inscription on the flyleaf identifies this album as that of Edith Elkington: "Aunt Edith's voyage home to England about 1889". - Some foxing and waterstaining, but prints largely clean.

        De la loi du contraste simultane des couleurs et de l'assortiment des objets colores considere d'apres cette loi dans ses rapports avec la peinture, les tapisseries des gobelins...

      Paris, Gauthier-Villars, 1889.. (32 x 24 cm). (8) XVI, 571 S. Mit 40 (36 farbig) lithographierten Tafeln, davon 34 gefaltet, 9 Schriftproben auf farbigem Papier und 2 gefalteten Tabellen. Halblederband der Zeit.. Zweite Ausgabe seines erstmals 1839 erschienenen Hauptwerkes zur Farbenharmonie. - "Vermutlich hat kaum ein Chemiker so viel Einfluß auf die Entwicklung der Kunst ausgeübt wie... Chevreul, der umfassende Talente besaß und 1824 zum Direktor der berühmten Gobelin-Teppichmanufaktur ernannt wurde. Hier konzentrierte sich Chevreul auf die Probleme der Färberei und damit auf Farben, und 1839 erscheint sein umfassender Versuch, ihrer Ästhetik eine systematische Grundlage zu geben. Er trägt den Titel 'De la loi contrast simultane des couleurs' und handelt vom sogenannten Simultankontrast der Farben, für den Chevreul zwei Gesetze formuliert: 'Sieht das Auge gleichzeitig zwei benachbarte Farben, so werden diese von ihrer optischen Zusammensetzung ebenso wie von ihrem Farbtonwert verschieden erscheinen.' Und: 'In der Harmonie des Kontrastes ist die komplementäre Zusammensetzung allen anderen überlegen.' Mit seinem Werk über den Simultankontrast beeinflusste Chevreul die Richtungen der Kunst, die als Impressionismus, Neoimpressionismus und Orphischer Kubismus bezeichnet werden, wobei es vor allem Robert Delaunay ist, der farbige 'Simultanscheiben' bildnerisch verwendet. Obwohl sein Werk für die Praxis wenig tauglich bleibt und nie abgeschlossen wird, wirkt Chevreul auch auf die Ansichten ein, die Eugene Delacroix und Georges Seurat zu den Farben und der Art haben, wie sie mit ihnen umgehen" (Silvestrini, Farbsysteme). - Erstes und letztes Blatt gebräunt. Vorderes Gelenk geringfügig angebrochen, sonst sauber und wohlerhalten. - Vgl. Norman 468 (EA)

        SOLARION. A Romance

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott Company, [1889].. First Edition, First Printing. Original Printed Wrappers. Very Good. First Edition. Octavo, original printed wrappers printed in black and orange. The true first edition, issued as Lippincott's Monthly Magazine, September, 1889, with a separate title page for the novel and frontispiece portrait of the author. Minor chipping to covers, spine slightly darkened. Contents are clean, paper is white. Uncommonly encountered, this book is truely rare in the original wrappers. Never published in true book form, but this is considered to be the first edition [as is the Lippincott issue of Doyle's THE SIGN OF THE FOUR, issued in the same format by Lippincott in 1890]. ¶ A major 19th Century Science Fiction novel of the creation of a super-intelligent dog; the dog and his creator are in love with the same woman with disastrous results. Thoughtful and philosophical in tone, similar to SIRIUS by Olaf Stapleton but obviously preceding that work by a great many years. Bleiler summarizes the plot in SCIENCE FICTION: THE EARLY YEARS, citing the work as "An excellent story". Fawcett's Wikipedia page states: "The rather remarkable novels Solarion (about a dog given human intelligence) and Douglas Duane (1885) (on scientific body-switching) as well as The Ghost of Guy Thryle (1895) (which has astral projection as a means of interplanetary travel) deserve to be better known."

        De la Loi du Contraste Simultane des Couleurs

      1889. CHEVREUL, M.E. De la Loi du Contraste Simultane des Couleurs. [8], xvi, 571, [1] pp. (including reproductions of Chevreul's autograph). With 40 numbered plates (one with overslip) on 22 sheets, all but 3 printed in colour, 9 specimens of coloured paper, 2 folding tables. Of the colour plates, 27 are in nine folding suites of 3 plates each. Thick 4to., 320 x 240 mm, bound in modern wrappers with the original front and rear wrappers laid down, in a new half morocco folding box. Paris: Imprimerie Nationale, 1889. |~||~||~||~| Deluxe Edition of "one of the most influential treatises on colour theory written during the nineteenth century" (DBS), issued on the fiftieth anniversary of the first edition, and the Centenary of the Imprimerie Nationale. The text of the present publication was printed under the supervision of Chevreul's son; the plates were printed under the supervision of M. David who was Chevreul's associate at the Gobelin textile factory. The work is recognized as a comprehensive attempt at providing a systematic basis to seeing colours. The work dealt with the so-called "simultaneous contrast" of colours, and contained Chevreul's famous law: "Two adjacent colours, when seen by the eye, will appear as dissimilar as possible." De La Loi du Contraste Simultané des Couleurs records Chevreul's discovery that colour intensity depends more upon the hues of the adjacent colours than upon a specific pigmentation. He defined the general principles and effects of simultaneous contrast: the modifications of hue and tone occurring when juxtaposed colours are viewed at the same time. Chevreul's work greatly influenced Impressionism, Neo-Impressionism, Pointillism and Orphic Cubism, with Robert Delaunay (1885-1941) using coloured "simultaneous discs" in his paintings. Although Chevreul's work was never completed, he also influenced the views of both Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863) and Georges Seurat (1859-1891) with regard to colours and the way in which they used them. Seeking to provide a scientific basis for Impressionism, they limited their palates to the colours in Chevreul's circle, applying dots of unmixed pigments to their canvases. The influence of Chevreul's theories continue into the twentieth century. Several modern colour-field painters, especially Ellsworth Kelly, are known to have experimented with Chevreul's colour theory. Some minor foxing at beginning and end, but on the whole a handsome copy. Cf. Brunet I, 1842. Wurmfeld, Color Documents 16. Birren Collection 143.

        Chuan xing bi du xia jiang tu kao. [The essential chart for navigating the Three Gorges of the Yangtze River]

      Shanghai: Xiu hai shan fang shu ju, 1889. Two volumes, oblong 8vo, pp. [9], [53] of charts, [4]; pp. [7], [44] of charts, [5]; occasional foxing, but a very good copy, stitched, as issued, Chinese-style in thin blue paper wrappers, slightly worn at margins, titles on paper labels to front wrappers, in the original blue silk-covered folding case; rubbed at the extremities, preserving one of two bone clasps; printed on double leaves, a few at the beginning of the second volume opened. The charming record of a riverscape now tragically compromised. First edition of the first comprehensive survey of the 'Three Gorges" of the Yangtze River, with a splendid panoramic pictorial map of the river, its course shown from the lower part of the river to the upper reaches; printed continuously on 97 pages, with the complete itinerary of the river from Yichang in Hubei Province to Kuifo (first volume) and from Kuifo to Chongquing, both in Sichuan Province (second volume).The first complete and systematic navigational chart of this famous stretch of water, the map shows both banks of the river in profile, with detailed information on the gorges, including names and locations of towns and villages (some of which are now completely submerged), details of the tidal flows, distances between key points, prominent identifying features and information on hazards such as rocks and whirlpools. Descriptions of the upstream and downstream itineraries are also present, at the beginning and end of each volumes. Several times reprinted, this original edition is of importance as the first comprehensive survey of the Three Gorges before the use of modern surveying techniques, while its illustrations of the settlements and geological features of the gorges provide an important record of a section of the Yangtze which can no longer be visited: the completion of the Three Gorges Dam in 2008 closed the river to small craft navigation and obliterated entire settlements. The hugely controversial project flooded archaeological and cultural sites, displaced some 1.3 million people, and is causing significant ecological changes.
