        Mission Pavie Indo-Chine 1879-1895. Géographie et voyages. I. Exposé des travaux de la mission (Introduction, première et deuxième périodes = 1879 à 1889).

      - Paris, Ernest Leroux [text volumes]; Augustin Challamel [atlas], 1898-1919. Ten volumes in 11 (ten text volumes and one atlas). Large 4to. (28.0 x 22.0 cm). Title pages, 3981 pp., 64 maps, 121 plates of which 33 in full colour; about 700 text figures. All original printed wrappers bound in. Uniform early 20th century half calf over marbled boards. Spines with four raised bands and gilt titles.l The complete results of the exploration of French Indo-China by Auguste Pavie. "Auguste Jean-Marie Pavie (1847-1925) was a French colonial civil servant, explorer and diplomat who was instrumental in establishing French control over Laos in the last two decades of the 19th century. After a long career in Cambodia and Cochinchina, Pavie became the first French vice-consul in Luang Prabang in 1885, eventually becoming the first Governor-General and plenipotentiary minister of the newly formed French colony of Laos" (Wikipedia). The work is separated into three parts: 'Various studies' ('Études diverses'), in three volumes, including one on the zoology of the area with contributions by several experts and with many new species that are often splendidly illustrated; 'Géographie et voyages', in seven volumes, with many fine maps, and an atlas with another ten large scale maps. Except for the atlas, all volumes are richly illustrated in the text, mainly with photos, a few volumes more dominantly with engravings. The first "études diverses" volume contains fine chromolithographs. Volume VII is very scarce. Another book-dealer states that "La presque totalité du tirage du volume VII a été détruite peu après son impression". A more detailed collation is as follows: Paris, Ernest Leroux, 1901.

      Very scarce set. Limited edition, no 3 of 5 only. Privately printed, Plate of George T Juckes, Book Merchant & Exporter, 325 St. Martins Lane, London and Brighton. 4 volumes: I xii, 383 pp, II xii, 376 pp, III xii, 373 pp, IV xii, 369 pp. Fine Bayntun binding. Unopened pages, AEG. Each volume has clean light marbled endpapers, blue cloth boards with quarter calf in blue, ornate devices to spine with copious gilt in excellent order and gilt title on morocco, in five bands. Minor wear to boards, slight marking to calf. Roquelaure was a courtier at Versailles, the court of Louis XIV, during the times of the Cardinals, Richelieu then Mazarin. There, as the unacknowledged translator writes, 'We see, as through a kaleidoscope, all the fascinating details of Court life during the most brilliant and withal careless period of French monarchy: in the midst of the gaiety the Duke was one of the shining lights." The Duke does not hold back. He names names - a daring move at a time when writers conventionally would only hint at a subject's identity through their initials.

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1889. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Emerson (1856-1936) was an English photographer who promoted photography as an independent art form. In this influential handbook, he outlined an aesthetic theory that declared nature this standard for all pictures, and explained his practice of "differential focusing." This involved focusing the image sharply in the center and softly on the edges, a method he believed most closely approximated normal human vision. Though Emerson would soon abandon many of these beliefs, a whole generation of advanced amateurs was inspired to begin making creative photographs by his methods. From the library of Robert Sobieszek, the longtime curator of photography at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), with his signature to the front flyleaf. Octavo. In the original tan cloth binding, which appears to have been expertly recased with some archival reinforcement along the fore-edge of a few leaves. Two tiny scuffs to the rear pastedown. The spine is a touch browned, with some mild foxing and fading to the boards, and two small ink numerals (one crossed out) on the front panel; else very good. Scarce.

        A very large albumen paper photograph, reproducing an illuminated address presented to John Dunn Esq. J.P. of Mount Barker (1802-1904), member of Parliament and prominent wheat merchant and miller in early colonial South Australia), by the workers of J. Dunn & Co. on the occasion of his retirement in May 1889. The address, the original of which was illustrated and illuminated by W.G.P. Joyner, gives an indication of the scale and importance of Dunn's enterprises: '. . . by your persev[er]ance, energy and strict integrity you have overcome all obstacles, and today you have the satisfaction of leaving to your successors the largest milling and wheat business in the Southern Hemisphere'

      - Image size approximately 325 x 263 mm, on the original ruled mount (visible surface 430 x 365 mm), framed and glazed. The photograph is beginning to lift slightly at two corners; mount slightly soiled at one corner; frame a little scuffed and marked; overall in excellent condition. On the reverse is the paper label of 'S. Solomon, Photographer, 51 Rundle Street, Adelaide'. An article in the 'South Australian Chronicle' for 8 June 1889 describes the circumstances of the presentation of the address, and describe the original in detail. 'The address is the work of Mr. Joyner, and is one of his most artistic productions . . . The words and the signatures, which number 105, being those of most of the leading employés, are situated in the centre, while all around are well executed paintings of a number of the mills belonging to the firm, taken from photographs. In the left-hand corner there is a painting of the site of the original mill at Hay Valley . . . On the top are Mr. Dunn's residence at Mount Barker ['The Laurels'] and the Dunn Memorial Church, which that gentleman presented to the residents of Mount Barker, while the right hand corner is occupied by a view of the firm's stores and offices in Freeman-street [Adelaide, now Gawler Place]. On the left side of the address there are views of the mills at Wilmington, the old mill at Port Adelaide, and at Mount Barker, and two representations of the new Roller Eclipse mill at Port Adelaide. On the other side the Nairne mill takes precedence, while underneath it is the gem of the collection the works at Port Pirie, including some of the shipping of the port with the railway in front. The Port Augusta and Bridgewater mills are represented, and an excellent portrait of Mr. Dunn is also included in the set.' A number of the source photographs are to be found in a Dunn family photograph album, now held by the State Library of South Australia [PRG 1485/3]. Dunn's entry in the 'Australian Dictionary of Biography' records that '[he] retired in 1889 and died at Mount Barker on 13 October 1894. The firm's eleven mills, five with the most modern machinery, then represented an investment of £150,000. They annually had an export trade of some 20,000 tons of flour to Britain, Western Australia, New South Wales and South Africa, some 400 employees, and a payment to farmers of £500,000'.

        The Blue Fairy Book

      The First Andrew Lang Fairy Book in Fine condition complete with signed & inscribed letter from Andrew Lang dated 1889. First edition. 8vo. 390pp + 16pp ads. Publisher's blue boards with gilt decoration to front board & spine. All edges gilt. A fine copy with clean & fresh boards with a coupleof the tiniest marks only. From the Thomas Hutchinson collection with bookplate & shelf number. A superb copy. Thomas Hutchinson 1856-1938 lived in Northumberland & was a published poet & a childrens book collector on an heroic scale; he had two library sales, one in Sothebys, 1905 & a three day sale held by Anderson & Garland of Newcastle in 1921. Hutchinson had constant correspondence with authors of the time and often tipped this into his books with associated contemporary author ephemera. This copy has such ephemera tipped in onto the endpapers (the collection hallmark) along with an important Andrew Lang letter most probably to Hutchinson dated 1889 stating "The book is only meant for children, and a preface would only annoy them and so it is confined to the full grown editions....."; also a manuscript hand written envelope has been tipped in from G. P. Jacomb-Hood dated '92 - one of the original illustrators. The Lang letter is of importance as it is contemporary with the Blue Fairy book & reveals Lang's wishes & intentions - interestingly written before any of the other Fairy Books had been published.

        Narrative and Critical History of America

      1889. WINSOR, Justin, editor. The Narrative and Critical History of America. Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin, (1889). Eight volumes bound in 16. Royal octavo, contemporary three-quarter black pebbled morocco, raised bands, marbled endpapers and edges, top edges gilt. $3800.Early edition of this monumental illustrated historical survey of the American continents, 16 large volumes in handsome publisher's morocco.This copiously illustrated work is composed of numerous in-depth essays by leading historians of the day, including Winsor himself. It is particularly valuable for its inclusion of the text of early documents and other primary sources, a number of which are illustrated in facsimile. Winsor's contributions are notable for his close attention to the evolving cartography of North America; “[Winsor] rapidly became the leading cartographer in the United States, and through his study of maps solved a number of historical problems which had previously been insoluble” (DAB). “If competently revised and brought more nearly to date, would be the most useful single work on the Western hemisphere, its history, cartography, and bibliography” (Howes W578). First issued in smaller octavo format from 1884 to 1889. Slight rubbing to extremities. A near-fine, handsome set.

        BALESTRERI, Umberto.

      60 lastre stereoscopiche in vetro, conservate in tre caricatori originali. - La collezione comprende inoltre uno stereoscopio a lenti della Gaumont a carrello mobile, una macchina fotografica stereoscopica modello Ica-Plaskop con 6 lastre entro custodia in pelle nera. L'importante spedizione fu guidata da Aimone di Savoia, Duca di Spoleto e vi presero parte Lodovico di Caporiacco, Mario Cugia ed il geologo Ardito Desio, il colonnello medico Gino Allegri, il fotografo Massimo Terzano, il radiotelegrafista Angelo Anfossi, due guide di Courmayeur (Bron e Croux) e tre alpinisti: Umberto Balestreri (capo carovana in assenza del comandante), Vittorio Ponti e Giuseppe Chiardola. In base alla documentazione allegata al materiale ed alla cronologia degli spostamenti redatta sul sito della Società Geografica Italiana è possibile attribuire la gran parte di questi scatti al Balestreri, autore dell'esplorazione della valle Shaksgam nel versante cinese del K2, raggiunta salendo al passo Mustagh e discendendo per il ghiacciaio Sarpo Laggo; nella parte alta della valle scoprì i ghiacciai di Staghar e Singhi. I toponimi attribuiti sulla cartografia a valichi, monti e ghiacciai sono in buona parte ancora oggi in uso. Umberto Balestreri, nato a Brescia nel 1889 da famiglia piemontese, fu grande alpinista ed il più giovane magistrato d'Italia; morì nel 1933 in un crepaccio sul ghiacciaio del Morteratsch nel Massiccio del Bernina. Le 60 lastre in vetro misurano 12,9x5,9 cm e riportano due fotografie ognuna, con al centro il titolo e la data scritti a penna. A parte 7 senza titolo né data, le fotografie coprono il periodo dal 27 marzo al 10 luglio 1929: vedute di montagne, nevai, ghiacciai, laghi e scalate, di grande qualità fotografica. Il supporto in vetro conferisce maggiore profondità e luminosità all'immagine tridimensionale. Il visore in metallo, a base esagonale, è alto 33 cm, ha la regolazione del fuoco ed una manopola che permette lo scorrimento delle immagini. Si accludono alcuni articoli d'epoca relativi al Balestreri e l'indice manoscritto del secondo caricatore. Straordinaria documentazione relativa ad una delle grandi esplorazioni italiane; l'estrema fragilità del supporto in vetro rende queste lastre fotografiche endash; per lo più in ottimo stato di conservazione endash; di grande rarità.

        The Nursery "Alice"

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1889 [1891]. Tall octavo. Original cream cloth-backed cream glazed pictorial boards, title to front cover red and black. Colour frontispiece with tissue-guard, 19 colour illustrations after John Tenniel. A little wear to extremities, light foxing to endpapers, boards toned and slightly soiled, a minor loss to lower fore corner; a very good copy. First edition, second issue ("The People's edition"), priced at two shillings on the title page. The original printing of this condensed version of Alice for younger readers was discarded by Dodgson in much the same way as its 1865 predecessor. Dodgson rejected the entire first edition of 10,000 copies in 1889, which was printed on toned paper, on the grounds that the pictures were "far too bright and gaudy". The first 4,000 rejected sheets were sent to America for publication under the imprint of Macmillan & Co. of New York, and a second edition of 10,000 copies was prepared for the UK in 1890. The most notable alteration in the second editions was the printing of the sheets on white rather than toned paper and the altered illustration of Alice and the Cheshire Cat on p. 34, removing Alice's profile. After the publication of the second edition, the remainder of the first printing sheets, retaining the original illustration of Alice and the Cheshire Cat on p. 34, were bound up to form the "People's Edition" of 1891, priced at two shillings, as in this copy. In 1896 copies of this issue were withdrawn from sale and offered to hospitals. Uncommon thus, with only five copies traced at auction: copies are overwhelmingly met in the second edition.
