      Photograph. Some staining and tape marks on the verso, but the photograph is sharp and clear. Fine. Fine 7" x 11" studio portrait by Walery, Photographer to the Queen, on a 13" x 18" matted photographer's board. INSCRIBED "with every good wish" to John Drinkwater, fellow actor and theater manager as well as the father of the poet John Drinkwater, and SIGNED and dated 1889 by Irving. The photograph depicts Irving seated holding a book with his inscription placed vertically in the upper blank margin. Born John Henry Brodribb in the Somerset village of Keinton Mandevill, the young Irving grew up in a very religious family where he first acquired an interest in capturing an audience by watching preachers in church. Inspired by his beloved American writer Washington Irving, he changed his name to Henry Irving and began his professional acting career at the age of 18. Successful as both actor and producer, Irving in 1895, at the age of 57, became the first actor ever honored with a knighthood.

        Tinted Lithographed Bird's-Eye View of Vancouver Waterfront, Titled:] The Harbour. Vancouver. British Columbia (from photo).

      Portland 1889 - [Portland, 1889]. Tinted lithograph ca. 23,5x37 cm (9 3/8 x 23 ½ in). Original centerfold. Recently matted. A minor tear on the top of the centrefold neatly repaired, otherwise a very good lithograph. A plate from "The West Shore: An Illustrated Western Magazin" (Portland, May 1889) depicts the Vancouver waterfront, with the first CPR station (1887) and trains, ships in the harbour, a part of the Deadman's Island, and the North Shore Mountains in the background. The plate illustrated an article "Vancouver, British Columbia" published in the magazine (pp. 227-233). "The rapidly increasing importance of this young and enterprising city entitles it to more than passing note, and The West Shore is pleased to present this month an account of its progress, present conditions and prospects, with illustrations, which will give an excellent idea of the appearance of the city. The capacity of the city for marine commerce can never be outgrown, no matter what magnitude it may attain. Its adaptability to the demands of commerce, the means it has for focusing a large volume of business at that point, and its capacity for expansion, must make Vancouver one of the most important cities of the Pacific coast. The healthful climate and location and altogether pleasant surroundings render it a very desirable residence place, and the control which it exercises over the products of the interior is already making a prominent manufacturing city. As the terminus of the longest single railway line in the world it has an advantage that places it entirely beyond competition, and to this, as well as to its natural features of excellence, is due its phenomenal growth" (p. 227).

        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 - 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 First edition. Folio (21-1/2 x 15-1/4 inches). 15 chromolithographic plates after Frederic Remington, A.B. Frost, Fred Cozzens and others. 32 ff. letterpress. Period style red straight-grained morocco, spinegilt with raised bands in seven compartments, titled in gilt, brown endpapers. Phillips p. 141; Wetzel p. 146; Sherwin sale (1946) lot 238; Bruns G120; Heller 502; Bennett p.48; Tyler Prints of the West pp.127 & 174; not in Reese Stamped with a National Character [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE MARBLE FAUN. Or the Romance of Monte Beni. Illustrated with Photogravures in two volumes. Large - Paper Edition.

      Riverside Press 1889 Testo inglese. Opera in due volumi. Cm.22x14,6. Pg.VIII, 530 complessive. Legature in piena pergamena editoriale con titoli e fregi in oro alla coperta. Ritratto dell'Autore inciso da Wilcox all'antiporta del primo volume. Con 50 fotolitografie in nero fuori testo, ciascuna con velina protettiva originale. Esemplari in barbe. Vistose bruniture. Tiratura limitata di 150 copie numerate, esemplare n°21. Importante resoconto di viaggio in Italia, pubblicato la prima volta nel 1860. Riportiamo integralmente il "Publishers' Advertisement", che illustra la particolare cura della presente, rarissima, edizione in tiratura limitata: "Ever since the first publication of The Marble Faun, travellers and lovers of Rome have used the book as a souvenir, and have found in its pages a most agreeable record of impressions created by the Eternal City and by the works of art preserved there. So satisfactory is the book in this regard that it early became the custom of visitors to Italy to collect photographs of the statues, paintings, and buildings referred to in the romance, and to interleave the book with them; and this has become so common that dealers in Rome and Florence make it their practice to keep such photographs arranged and ready for the traveller. Nevertheless, photographs are unsatisfactory pictures for such a purpose, and the volumes in which they are interleaved are apt to be displeasing to a fastidious collector. The publishers of Hawthorne's works have therefore taken the hint from this well - established custom, and have prepared the following edition, by printing the work in two volumes and adding to the text photogravures of fifty subjects. Great care has been taken by the publishers in the choice of photographs, and their selection is not a mere repetition of the dealer's choice. Every traveller knows that there is a wide difference between the best and the poorest of these photographs, and no pains have been spared to obtain the best made directly from the objects themselves. The publishers trust that they have thus given Hawthorne's classic a presentation more acceptable, not only to travellers but to all lovers of art and letters, than would have been possible had they resorted to the ordinary method of employing artists to illustrate the story. Some of the buildings illustrated have disappeared since Hawthorne saw them and wrote of them; others are likely to be altered or removed in the rapid change which is passing over Rome, and the work thus becomes a valuable record of the past as well as a pleasure to the eye".

        Two Original Unsigned but Dated Watercolours Titled:] "Old Fort in the Amazon near Para, Feb. 1889" & "On the Amazon - Para, Feb. 1889."

      - Feb. 1889. Watercolours ca. 11x20,5 cm (4 ½ x 8 in) & 12x24 cm (5 x 9 ½ in). Recently matted, overall very good watercolours. Two attractive watercolours of Belém, the capital and largest city in the state of Pará, Brazil and the gateway to the Amazon. "Founded in 1616 by the Kingdom of Portugal, Belém was the first European colony on the Amazon but did not become part of Brazil until 1775." (Wikipedia). Little is known about the artist however from the photograph and watercolour of the clipper Sobraon found with these watercolours one can assume that the watercolours were created on a voyage from the United Kingdom to Australia. The Sobraon was used as an immigration ship between the England and Australia between the years 1866 and 1890.

        Der fünfte Kongreß des Deutschen Schachbundes. Frankfurt a.m. 1887

      Leipzig: Verlag von Veit & Co, 1889 288 pages with table and diagrams. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:5223) First edition. George Henry Mackenzie was born on March 24, 1834 in North Kessock, Scotland. In 1856, at the age of 19, he purchased a commission in the 60th Rifles (the King?s Royal Rifle Corps). He served as a Lieutenant in the British army, primarily in Ireland, but went to India in 1857 during the Sepoy Rebellion. He resigned his army commission in 1861 to become a professional chess player. In 1862, he won a handicap tournament in London, defeating Adolf Anderssen and Frederick Deacon. In 1862, he defeated Reverend George MacDonnell in a match in Dublin, Ireland (+6-3=1). In 1863 he emigrated to the United States and enlisted in the Union Army. After 15 weeks as a private, he earned the rank of Captain in charge of a Black regiment. Mackenzie later deserted and was discharged from the Union Army. In 1864 he rejoined the Army and fought with distinction in three battles. However, he was arrested again on the previous desertion charges and imprisoned. He was released in May, 1865 where he moved to New York and started playing chess. In 1866, he won a tournament in New York. In March 1866, Mackenzie defeated Gustave Reichelm in New York in a match (+5-0=2). In 1867, Mackenzie defeated Reichhelm in Philadelphia (+7-0=2) for the title of U.S. Chess Champion. In 1887 he won the 5th German Chess Championship in Frankfurt (+13-3=4). He, thus, became the first American chess player to win an international event.

        Palingenesia Iuris Civilis. Iuris Consultorum reliquiae quae Iustiniani digestis continentur ceteraque Iuris Prudentiae Civilis fragmenta minora secundum Auctores et libros disposuit Otto Lenel.

      Leipzig, Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1889.. 2 Bde. 4to. (I:) Tb., 3 Bll., Titelblatt, 1308 Spalten; (II:) Tb., 1264 Spalten. Neuere, schlichte rote Halbleinenbände (mit aufgebrachten Originalrückenbezügen).. Die Zeit von Kaiser Augustus bis in die Mitte des 3. Jahrhunderts wird als klassische Jurisprudenz der Prinzipatszeit bezeichnet. In dieser Zeit erlebte das Ius Romanum jene Blütezeit, die dann wesentlich Eingang gefunden hat im Corpus iuris civilis. Das Ius Romanum, auch dessen Wissenschaft, ist im wesentlichen kasuistisch, auch seine Kommentare und Systeme sind kasuistisch. Diese Kasuistik, die keinesfalls spitzfindig oder formelhaft, sondern lebendig-praktisch sich uns bietet, ist intensiv bestrebt, den Reichtum und die Mannigfaltigkeit des wirklichen Lebens zu erfassen und zu beherrschen. Der römische Jurist nannte diese Kunst die "ars boni et aequi". Die Schriften dieser klassischen Juristen fanden breiten Eingang in die Digesten des Corpus iuris civilis, jedoch auseinandergerissen, verkürzt, teilweise verändert. Eine Darstellung der klassischen römische Jurisprudenz bietet die Palingenesia von Otto Lenel. Die Digesten bestehen bekanntlich großteils aus exzerpierten Klassikerstellen, die in bestimmter Ordnung in den einzelnen Titeln der Bücher angeordnet sind. Alle diese Exzerpte aus Klassikerschriften sind durch Herkunftsangaben in den Inskriptionen der Fragmente gekennzeichnet. Ein mechanisches Aneinanderreihen der in den Fragmenten angezeigten Inskriptionen müsste zu den wiederhergestellten Schriften der römischen Klassiker führen. Doch auch in die Inskriptionen haben sich beim Zusammenstellen der Digesten Fehler eingeschlichen. Beim Aufsuchen des ursprünglichen Zusammenhangs muß der Inhalt des einzureihenden Fragments ausschlaggebend sein. Dies musste kritisch geprüft sein. Die Feststellung der Materienfolge ist wohl die schwierigste und anspruchsvollste Arbeit, die Otto Lenel im Gegensatz zu den Vorversuchen, etwa der Palingenesia von Karl Ferdinand Hommel (1722-1781) geleistet hat. Hinzu kommt das Aufdecken Justinianischer Interpolationen. Diese philologischen Arbeiten sind nicht mehr steigerbar. Otto Lenel, der in der Pandektenwissenschaft ausgebildet wurde, ist keiner Schule zuzuordnen. In seinem Lebenswerk, die Wiederherstellung der Schriften der klassischen römischen Juristen, war er ein Pionier und hat dem Archetypus aller europäischen Rechtswissenschaft ein ewiges Denkmal errichtet. - NDB XIV,204f. (E. Bund); Kleinheyer-Schröder, 2.A., 1996. S. 493f. mit weiteren Literaturangaben.
