        The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. Sixth Edition, with Additions and Corrections to 1872. (Thirty-Seventh Thousand)

      John Murray, 1889. 8vo., Sixth Edition, Thirty-Seventh Thousand, with a folding diagram, neat contemporary signatures on front endpapers; original arches-style binding of green cloth, decorative gilt back, green patterned endpapers, uncut, corners lightly bruised, case a little shaken and upper hinge tender (but binding entirely sound), two pinholes in backstrip (not affecting lettering) else a very good, crisp, clean copy. The sixth is generally held to be the last significant edition, containing as it does Darwin's final major corrections and revisions. Published in 1872, it is the first edition with the title The Origin of Species, and includes among many other revisions a new chapter (VII) inserted to confute the views of the Catholic biologist St. George Mivart. There is a glossary, and the word 'evolution' is used in the text for the first time. The thirty-seventh thousand is unusual in that it rarely carries the usual publisher's catalogue bound in at end. A good copy of the 'most important scientific work of the 19th century' (Horblit) and 'the most important biological book ever written' (Freeman). Scarce in anything like this condition. Freeman (Darwin), 131; Freeman (BNHB), 907. . Catalogs: natural history: darwin & evolution.

An early autograph letter signed ?Theodore Roosevelt? addressed to Roosevelt?s future Secretary of War and Secretary of State Elihu Root. Thirty-one year old Roosevelt wrote ?My dear Root, I enclose one of the blanks at which your haughty soul revolted; but I hope you will sign it and send it back; if we manage it well I think quite a good club can be made out of the Federal; and I think there is room for such a one.? Roosevelt refers to the Federal Club of New York, a political group that supported Roosevelt early in his political career. He frequently spoke at the club and briefly helped run. It is penned on pages one and three of four page stationery, and the pages have been separated. There is a brown toning area to the center of the first page.

Each volume inscribed to "Mrs. Morgan" by the author on the half-title, the first volume bearing Carroll's handwritten date of December 12.

In the companion volume, Carroll dates the inscription to Morgan December 27, two days prior to the book's official release, indicating a second presentation copy and a significant association with Morgan. Each volume contains 46 black and white illustrations by Harry Furniss, who in discussing his relationship with Carroll once mused, "I was willful and erratic, bordering on insanity. We therefore got along splendidly." Bound by Riviere and Son in full red morocco, with gilt-rule border to both boards, gilt decorative device at corners of turn-ins, and marbled endpapers. Spine in six compartments, gilt lettered. Original bindings of full red cloth bound in, each cover bearing a small gilt illustration of one of the characters from the book within a circular border.

First Edition.Sylvie and Bruno, first published in 1889, and its 1893 second volume Sylvie and Bruno Concluded form the last novel by Lewis Carroll published during his lifetime. Both volumes were illustrated by Harry Furniss. The novel has two main plots; one set in the real world at the time the book was published (the Victorian era), the other in the fantasy world of Fairyland. While the latter plot is a fairytale with many nonsense elements and poems, similar to Carroll's Alice books, the story set in Victorian Britain is a social novel, with its characters discussing various concepts and aspects of religion, society, philosophy and morality. Carroll initially intended for the novel to be published in one volume. However, due to its length, it was divided into two volumes.Condition:Very rare in the original jacket. Laid in is a leaf requesting the return of copies of the 'Sixtieth Thousand' printing of Through the Looking Glass due to the inferior printing of the illustrations, promising a copy of the next issue in exchange. A touch of wear to cloth, some damage to head edges. Jacket professionally resorted, spine age darkened else a very good to fine copy in a very good, but rare, jacket.

        Odilon Redon

      The pioneering work with extensive documentation, including significant extracts from Redon's writings and the first catalog raisonné of Redon's prints. Offered is an example from the first edition, limited to 550 on handmade paper, complete with the Redon b/w original etching reserved for the book's issue in an excellent impression, clean and fresh and the rarely found publisher's paper wrappers with their elegant design, repeated with a different color scheme on the title page. Wrappers are bound-in to later cloth boards. Mellerio was intimately familiar with many aspects of Redon's life and work. They met in 1889 and became friends. Mellerio introduced Redon to the artists of the Nabis movement who were influenced by Redon. With Roger-Marx, Mellerio became the leading advocate for Redon's importance in French art. In 1894 he wrote a prefatory essay for the catalog of the Redon exhibition at the Durand Ruel Gallery, expounding what is now understood, that Redon with his new and distinctively French expression of the unconscious and dreaming mind occupied a unique and important position in modern art. ORIGINAL ETCHING: hand-pulled under the supervision of A. Porcabeuf from an 1893 copper plate, later extensively reworked by Redon, bound in with wide margins, as issued; a head in reverie, described in the catalog as, "le croquis d'un profil et tourné vers la droite" (Mellerio 25 bis), 100 x 140 mm in the plate. FORMAT: Publisher's forest green wrappers in the sewn binding, upper side with black & hunter green letters and publisher's pictorial globe logo in hunter and moss green, bound-in to later gray asparagus cloth boards, gilt ruled and lettered on the spine. SIZE: Wrappers: 280 x 226 mm or 11.02 x 8.9 inches. (Boards: 290 x 240 mm.) CONDITION DETAIL: Original Etching: Fine. Frontispiece portrait: outer edge tips with trace toning, otherwise fresh. Title page: 1 tiny spot in top margin. Plates & Pages: almost entirely clean and fresh, except a few with a small margin spot, and 4 pages with scattered small margin spots. Binding: Good: slightly askew with spine slant: joints and hinges slightly weakened. Original Wrappers: clean and bright: some rubs. Upper Side: bottom third of the fore-edge with an irregular 89 mm tear-off with loss, including its bottom corner. Lower Side: Fine. Later Cloth Boards: clean and bright: rubs: all-around light edgewear: gilt letters rubbed, and gilt ruling at foot rubbed off. EDITION NOTE: printed in letterpress in French by A. Gauthier-Villars, the fine photolithography (phototypies) by J. Barry, 1 of 475 unnumbered examples on handmade, untrimmed Arches paper (papier vélin d'Arches). (There were 75 numbered examples issued on Japon paper.) PAGINATION: Confirmed complete, 169 pages with 208 illustrations, including 1 frontispiece facsimile portrait of Redon (Plate I) and 1 original Redon etching (Plate II) on their own leaves, and reproductions of the suite of 9 drawings engraved by the Evely process that illustrate Les Fleurs du Mal by Baudelaire (1890). [3] leaves, half-title page, Plate I-frontispiece, title page, justification, and publishing statement; 166 pages with 43 b/w plates illustrating the 207 graphic works described in the Redon catalog raisonné (26 etchings, 172 lithographs, and 9 engraved drawings); [2], leaves, contents and printing information, versos blank. Introductory text with footnotes includes: notes on the works, a richly annotated bibliography, poems inspired by Redon, (one by Mellerio), an annotated exhibition history, an alphabetical list of the prints, and a substantial extract from Redon's journal [1867-1915], De Soi-Même with Quelques Notes De Odilon Redon A Monsieur A. Bonger, pp. 49-79, and Fragments with annotations from d'Une Lettre de Odilon Redon A Edmond Picard, pp. 80-84. The journal was published in its entirety in 1922 and Redon's letters [1878-1916] in 1923. Catalog raisonné with 43 plates is in 3 parts; 1) Catalogue de l'Oeuvre Gravé with the original etching as its frontispiece (Plate II), and 25 reproduced etchings on Plates III-VII; 2) Catalogue de l'Oeuvre Lithographié with 172 reproduced lithographs on Plates VIII-XLII (35 plates); and 3) Appendix to Catalogue de l'Oeuvre Lithographié, reproducing the 9 drawings that illustrate Les Fleurs du Mal on Plates XLIII-XLIV. LATER HISTORY: Mellerio and Redon maintained an active correspondence until Redon's death: Seven years after (1923), Mellerio published his second major work on Redon, a comprehensive survey, "Odilon Redon. Peintre, dessinateur et graveur." Since, 16 confirmed Redon graphic works, 7 etchings and 9 lithographs have been described and added to the contemporary catalog raisonné.

        La seconda spedizione svedese nella Groenlandia. I ghiacciai dell'interno (l'Inlandsis) e la costa orientale. Eseguita a spese del signor Oscar Dickson. Versione italiana autorizzata dall'Autore per Adolfo Massoni.

      Milano, Fratelli Treves, 1889. 1889 In-8°, pp.VIII + 528. Brossura editoriale. Con 5 tavv. in litografia (Kjellstrom) più volte ripiegate a colori e  moltissime tavv. e illustrazioni in b/n n. t. Tracce d'uso e restauri alla brossura, ma buon esemplare nel complesso. Prima edizione italiana della relazione del secondo tentativo di attraversamento della Groenlandia. l Nordenskiöld (Helsingfors, Helsinki, 1832-Dalbjö, 1901), esploratore e scienziato svedese, si volse in gioventù agli studi di geologia e mineralogia e, nel 1837, si aggregò ad una spedizione scientifica nelle isole Svalbard, territori in cui compì successivamente altre ricognizioni scientifiche. Le sue esplorazioni si indirizzarono in seguito alle regioni artiche, al comando delle navi "Vega" e "Lena", salpate nel luglio del 1878. La "Vega" rimase bloccata dai ghiacci nello stretto di Bering e fu costretta ad un lungo sverno, al termine del quale entrò nelle acque dell'Oceano Pacifico, compiendo il periplo dell'Asia sino al Canale di Suez e di lì tornando in Europa. Nel 1883 tentò sfortunatamente la traversata della Groenlandia, arrestandosi a 117 chilometri dal mare. Redasse importanti lavori di cartografia ("Facsimile Atlas", "Periplus") e narrò le sue esplorazioni in alcuni noti volumi, "Vega's färd hring Asien och Europa" e "Vega expeditionen vetenskapliga jakttagelser". Bussoli, Esplorazioni polari, p. 178; Zavatti, 209.

        Autograph Letter, Signed

      N.p. (Hartford): N.p., 1889. (3)pp., rectos only. Dated July 15, 1889, from Clemens to his daughter, Clara, signed “Papa,” about a train disaster in Virginia. An update about the wreck arrived in a letter while Clemens was dining with his friend, Charles Dudley Warner, a fellow American writer. Clemens’s vivid description of the event brings alive the immediacy of the disaster. He writes, “... that late accident still grows & grows. There had been a washout; several hundred feet of the road were gone; two hours after midnight that sleeping-car train dashed in to that vacant space in a pouring rain, & mingled its wreckage with the chaos of rocks, weeds, rails & freshet-rubbish contributed by the washout; the crushed passengers woke up & wailed out in that rainy thick darkness; then the cheerful car-stove came to their help; & gave them light, & burnt them up.” He goes on to describe how a young girl (Miss Patty Carrington) was killed in the fire, and how the girl’s adoptive mother, Mrs. Judge Thompson, who survived the crash, lost all of her clothing and baggage containing two centuries-worth of family heirlooms as well. The accident to which he refers happened on July 2, 1889, on the Norfolk & Western Railroad line near Thaxton, VA. It was the most serious accident in the railroad’s history: seventeen people were killed and many more were injured. Clemens closes the letter on a lighter note, describing a piece by Beethoven performed by his neice: “the one where, all along & all along, half a dozen of the bass notes keep rolling back down stairs a little way — only to the first landing; & get up again & roll down again & are the darling of the piece & the charm of it.” He signs the letter, “Goodbye dear heart — write me again. Papa. P.S. I don’t mean this letter as an answer to your letter, it is merely a response.” With the original envelope addressed to Clara in Elmira, NY, where Clemens and his family kept a summer home. A dramatic and historical letter that captures Clemens’s instinct for storytelling. Fine.

        Victoria, B. C. 1889 [bird's-eye view]

      Victoria, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada: Ellis & Co., publishers of "The Colonist", 1889. Tinted lithographic bird's-eye view after R.H., numbered on the image with a linked identifying index beneath. 27 1/4 x 42 1/8 inches. A fine image: Victoria viewed from high above the straits of San Juan Fuca, looking north Rare: Reps records just 8 examples (4 in Canada and 4 in the United States). Reps notes that the artist is 'R.H.' but gives no further information. The key beneath identifies 63 places or buildings of interest (including the publisher's offices on Government Street) and all the main streets are also identified. Victoria was founded by the Hudson's Bay Company in 1843 as Fort Camosun as a fur trading post, the settlement was later called Fort Victoria, in honour of Queen Victoria. When the crown Colony of Vancouver Island was established in 1849, a town was laid out on the site and made the capital of the colony. The Chief Factor of the fort, James Douglas was made governor of the colony, and would be the leading figure in the early development of the city until his retirement in 1864. With the discovery of gold on the British Columbia mainland in 1858, Victoria became the port, supply base, and outfitting centre for miners on their way to the Fraser Canyon gold fields, mushrooming from a population of 300 to over 5000 literally within a few days. In 1866 when the island was politically united with the mainland, Victoria remained the capital of the new united colony and became the provincial capital when British Columbia joined the Canadian Confederation in 1871. Victoria was incorporated as a city in 1862. ... In 1886, with the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway terminus on Burrard Inlet, Victoria's position as the commercial centre of British Columbia was lost to the city of Vancouver. The city subsequently began cultivating an image of genteel civility within its natural setting, an image aided by the impressions of visitors such as Rudyard Kipling, the opening of the popular Butchart Gardens in 1904 and the construction of the Empress Hotel by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1908.

Brevet daterat »Pensione Dania, Capo di Sorrento den 6. 3. 26.» 3 s. »Tack för Ert brev, som jag läst med intresse. Det förefaller mig vara en mycket god idé med dessa dramatiska sketcher, en form av uppläsning som det verkligen är mening med. Men det förutsätter att Ni har några sådana dramatiska småting på hand. Det går nog ej för en >ordentlig> författare att i en hast åstadkomma ett eller annat dylikt, ty det är såvitt jag förstår en synnerligen krävande form - förutsatt att det skall bli något av värde. [...] Möjligen kunde ju tänkas att bland vad jag redan skrivit finns något som Ni skulle kunna använda. T. ex. första enaktaren i Den svåra stunden (i boken Teater), en liten sak med blott två roller. Det är längesen den skrevs men jag tror att den ej är utan värde och har något visst suggestivt. Då den nyligen uppförts på en liten scen i Paris lär den efter vad man sagt gjort verkan. [...] Annars har jag kommit att tänka på möjligheten att läsa något prosastycke av mig. Jag har skrivit några sådana som enligt min mening egentligen har något visst dramatiskt i sig, ej berättande. T. ex. Den fordringsfulla gästen (första avdelningen, den om hotellgästen; förekommer i Valda sidor). Eller kanske hellre Frälsar-Johan (Valda sidor), liksom förutnämnda en monolog - ett förvirrat fattighjon som tror sig vara mänskornas frälsare. [...] Vad mina saker beträffar, så kan de nog ej tänkas lämpliga i annat än ett på det hela taget allvarligt program. Om ni möjligen tänker Er ett lättare sådant, mera allmänt underhållande, så måste jag säga att jag ej vill komma ifråga. Annars gärna.». Gabriel Alw (1889-1946) var skådespelare, verksam på Dramaten i Stockholm 1925-1946. Han spelade bland annat den viktiga rollen som >En man> i Per Lindbergs uppsättning av Han som fick leva om sitt liv 1928, och är även känd för sin inläsning av Tegnérs dikt »Det eviga» i den första sändningen av Dagens dikt - ett av Sveriges radios mest eviga program - den 1 februari 1937.<p>Vid denna tid var Lagerkvist nygift med Elaine Sandels sedan drygt tre månader, och de första åren bodde paret i Frankrike och Italien. I ett brev till Henrik Sörensen nio dagar efter brevet till Alw, från samma plats, beskriver Lagerkvist sig själv och Elaine som »alldeles förbaskat lyckliga»
