        Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (Salesman's Dummy)

      1889. TWAIN, Mark. A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court [Salesman’s Dummy]. New York: Charles L. Webster & Company, 1889. Slim octavo, original three-quarter (front cover) and full (rear cover) brown morocco, marbled endpapers (front) and patterned endpapers (rear), with original cloth front cover mounted to rear pastedown and morocco and sheep spines mounted to front pastedown. $4200.Original salesman’s dummy for A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, with engraved frontispiece portrait, select illustrations and excerpts, and samples of the morocco and sheep spines affixed to the front pastedown, and the gilt-decorated cloth cover and spine affixed to the rear pastedown.Salesman’s dummies (also called salesman’s samples or prospectuses) were meant to be taken door-to-door to show potential subscribers. This dummy features the three-quarter morocco binding as the front cover and the full, decorated morocco binding as the rear cover, with samples of the possible leather spines and the original pictorial cloth within, to easily show a potential customer all of the binding possibilities. The text consists of several sections of the book and a number of full-page illustrations. At the rear are two pages of advertisements and 15 leaves of ruled paper intended to be filled with orders (with the headings: “Subscribers’ Names,” “Residence,” “Style of Binding” and “No. of Copies”). “The novel is a characteristic Twainian amalgam of fantasy and fun, observation and satire, that both amuses and provokes powerful reflection as it confronts the customs of olden times with the brash values of the New World” (Lacy, 478). This title is Twain’s first collaboration with illustrator Dan Beard. “Since Twain enthusiastically approved every drawing in the novel, it should be read as a full collaboration between the author and artist” (LeMaster & Wilson, 64). See BAL 3429; Johnson, McBride, 124; MacDonnell, 48-49. Two subscribers’ names neatly inked in on first sheet at rear.Near-fine condition. Scarce.

        The Wanderings of Oisin and Other Poems.

      London: Kegan Paul. 1889 - First edition. pp. vi, 156. Dark blue cloth, title on gilt on upper cover and spine, with publishers monogram stamped in blind on lower cover. Owner’s signature on front fly leaf. A near fine copy. Wade 2. The title of the poem is taken from a verse dialogue between the seasoned warrior Oisin and Saint Patrick. It recounts Oisin’s adventures in Tir-nan-Oge (the land of youth) with the immortal Niamh and the poem ends with the hero returning to the mortal world. Yeats probably based his narrative on Brian O’Looney’s translation although it was also suggested he worked from the Gaelic Union school edition of the poem. In 1938 Yeats wrote that ‘The Wanderings of Oisin’ “was published by subscription, John O’Leary finding almost all the subscribers”. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Seine politische Karriere brachte ihn zweimal in das Repräsentantenhaus von Connecticut, sein Versuch 1867 für die Republikaner in den Kongress einzuziehen scheiterte an seinem für die Demokraten kandidierenden Cousin William Henry Barnum. - Sehr schönes und frisches Exemplar!

        Ueber Strahlen electrischer Kraft.

      1889. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. RARE OFFPRINT IN FIRST EDITION from: Annalen der Physik 36, neue Folge, 1889, pp. 769-783, 1 plate. In original printed wrapper, browned. -The text of a lecture on electric waves delivered 13 December 1888, it relates qualitative experiments undertaken by Hertz, at the Karlsruhe Polytechnic, on the analogy between electric and light waves. Passing electric waves through huge prisms of hard pitch, he showed that they refract exactly as light waves do. He polarized electric waves by directing them through a grating of parallel wires, and he diffracted them by interrupting them with a screen with a hole in it. He reflected them from the walls of the room, obtaining interference between the original and the reflected waves. He focused them with huge concave mirrors, casting electric shadows with conducting obstacles. This is the first print appearance, preceding its appearance in Annalen der Physik (36, p. 769) because, at this point in his career, Hertz was sending his papers to Hermann von Helmholtz to communicate to the Berlin Academy for quick publication before sending them to Annalen der Physik. It was later collected with Hertz's other experimental and theoretical works on electricity in Untersuchungen uber die Ausbreitung der elektrischen Kraft (Leipzig, 1892), which expanded and clarified the electromagnetic theory of light that had been put forth by the British Physicist James Maxwell in 1884. Hertz's experiments with electromagnetic waves led to the development of the wireless telegraph and the radio. (D.S.B.). Very Good.

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...

        Australia Twice Traversed.

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, Limited, 1889. Two volumes, octavo, with 21 plates, six folding coloured maps and illustrations in the text; bound in modern brown quarter cloth, gilt, the original decorated front boards tipped in at the rear of each volume. First edition: 'arguably the most handsomely produced of late nineteenth-century Australian books' (Wantrup).Giles, with some justice, called himself 'the last of the Australian explorers', and was the first to attempt the crossing from the Telegraph Line to Western Australia. In 1872 he set off from Chambers Pillar with two companions on a modest expedition, financed largely with the help of Ferdinand von Mueller. Failing to cross Lake Amadeus, he turned back, but not before he had traversed some 1000 miles of hitherto uncharted territory. Giles cherished the hope of making a successful crossing, and although 'forestalled by Peter Warburton and John Forrest, Giles succeeded in his cherished aim of making an overland crossing from South to Western Australia in 1875. Equipped with camels by Thomas Elder, he set out from Beltana and went for supplies to Port Augusta whence he proceeded first north-west and then west along a string of waterholes, Wynbring, Ooldea, Ooldabinna and Boundary Dam, until he reached the Western Australian border.' (ADB)Australia Twice Traversed represents the collected narratives of Ernest Giles's five expeditions through the centre and the west of 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).

        Report Upon United States Geographical Surveys West of the One Hundredth Meridian; Vol. I-Geographical Report, Appendix F. Memoir of Explorations and Surveys, Etc.

      Washington, DC: Government Printing Office, 1889. First Edition. Quarto. . 780 pages, with errata (tipped in)and compliments of the author slip laid in, illustrated with 38 lithographed plates, mostly in duotone but some in color. 3 large folding maps. Remarkably clean pages. George M. Wheeler (1842-1905) originally was a West Point graduate who used his degree as an engineer in surveying much of the American West. It was he who named the Colorado Plateau. Once he was authorized to hire a team of 10 specialists, he set out to map the entire west beyond the 100th meridian. His survey of 361,000 square miles created the first major topographical map of the West. The work was mainly done from 1879 to 1883 but though he retired in 1888, he devoted his energies full time to the completion of the official report thus the present volume. Known today as "The Wheeler Survey" its main purpose was to create maps of the area for the establishment of future roads, to record natural resources and to document the Native American tribes of the area. The expedition covered much of the western United States including: New Mexico, California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Wyoming and Texas. Part 1. Geographical discovery and exploration, west coast and interior, 1500-1800 with chronological list of expeditions and notes on certain old maps, pp. 481-51. Part 2.

        A Doll's House - Mrs Henderson's Personal Copy

      T Fisher Unwin, 1889 Published by T. Fisher Unwin, 1889, Limited Edition. Laura Henderson's copy with her bookplate and signature. Limited Edition of only 115 numbered copies, signed by publisher T. Fisher Unwin. This is copy number 48 and the first edition of Archer's translation, with a mounted photographic frontispiece of Ibsen and six studio photographs of the actors. Laura Henderson (1864 - 1944) rose to prominence in the 1930s when, as a wealthy and eccentric widow, she founded the Windmill Theatre in London's Great Windmill Street in partnership with Vivian van Damm, and they went on to turn it into a British institution, famed for its pioneering tableaux vivants of motionless female nudity and for having never closed during the Blitz. On her death in 1944, Laura Henderson bequeathed The Windmill to My Dear Bop, Vivian Van Damm. In his 1952 autobiography he described her as a great strain on one's nerves, patience and tact. She was portrayed by Dame Judi Dench in the 2005 film Mrs Henderson Presents. Lovely association. Sightly grubby boards and browned endpapers but contents present very well indeed.

      Sydney: Turner & Henderson, 1889. Slim octavo, with five folding plates (including frontispiece), in original faded purple pebbled-grain cloth.

He includes rainfall, thunderstorm occurrence and other statistical charts, with separate sections on Thunderstorms, Forecasting Rains, and Annual Variability in the Time and Arrival of Rains.Egeson worked for many years as the assistant to Henry Chamberlain Russell at the Sydney Observatory. Light foxing, very good.

         De la loi du contraste simultané des couleurs et de l'assortiment des objets colorés considéré d'après cette loi dans ses rapports avec la peinture, les tapisseries des Gobelins, les tapisseries de Beauvais pour meubles, les tapis, la mosaïque, les vitraux colorés, l'impression des étoffes, l'imprimerie, l'enluminure, la décoration des édifices, l'habillement et l'horticulture. Avec une introd. de M. H. Chevreul fils.

      Paris, Imprimerie Nationale, 1889, fort vol. in 4°, de 4ff. XVI-571pp., 2 tableaux dépl., 40 planches h.t. dont 36 en couleur la plupart se dépl. et 9 feuillets imprimés de différentes couleurs, demi-basane verte claire époque, dos orné, coiffes lég. frottées, couv. cons., bon exemplaire frais. Seconde édition de ce très important ouvrage sur la théorie des couleurs, qui a fortement les peintres impressionnistes et pointillistes. Elle a été revue par le fils de l'auteur, qui retrace dans l'introduction la genèse des travaux de son père. Nommé Directeur de la Manufacture royale des Gobelins en 1824, le chimiste Chevreul se pencha très vite sur ce qu'on appelle aujourd'hui la psychophysique des couleurs et leur métrologie. Ainsi le ton de deux plages de couleur paraît plus différent lorsqu'on les observe juxtaposées que lorsqu'on les observe séparément, sur un fond neutre commun. Et une surface de luminosité moyenne paraît plus sombre sur un fond clair, et plus claire sur un fond sombre. "C'est donc la façon dont l'oeil voit et son mécanisme qui importe désormais" disait le chimiste. Les lois de Chevreul fournirent aux coloristes les moyens d'éliminer les effets indésirables des contrastes. L'ouvrage fut réédité luxueusement aux frais de l'Etat en 1889 à la mort de Chevreul. Aujourd'hui, il figure toujours parmi les livres les plus importants sur la couleur. ¶ En français dans le texte n°237 (pour l'édit. originale de 1839) - DSB III p.240.

        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. Some of the greats of the day played in this tournament with Blacburne and Weiss coming in tied for second and third with scores of 13 1/2. One and a half points behind Mackenzie. Von Bardeleben held sole 4th with 13. Berger and Tarrasch tied for 5th through 6th with 12. Englisch held 7th with a total of 11 1/2.Condition:Rebound, title tape repair with small chip and several tears else about very good.

        La décoration & l'art industriel à l'Exposition de 1889

      First edition of 30 copies printed on Japan paper of this offprint of l'Artiste for November 1890. §Contemporary Bradel binding of beige paper boards, ex libris to pastedown. §Autograph inscription signed from Paul Verlaine to Edmond Bonnaffé on the justification of printing at end: "Exemplaire de Monsieur E. Bonnaffé. P. Verlaine [Monsieur E. Bonnaffé's copy. P. Verlaine]". Edmond Bonnaffé (1825-1903) was a wealthy collector and noted historian of art, very close to the artistic movements of the age. §These pages by Verlaine are a critical review of the book by Roger Marx of the same name (Paris, 1890). In it, the poet discusses the great names in Art Nouveau, such as Bapst, Chaplet and Gallé. But above all, he writes his famous condemnation of the Eiffel Tower: "This skeletal belfry, that will never outlive, to the contrary indeed! the archi-centenarians of France and Belgium". Indeed, on the 14 February 1887, Paul Verlaine signed a manifesto of protest published by Le Temps, along with other personalities in the arts and literature, including Charles-Marie-René Leconte de Lisle, Guy de Maupassant, Alexandre Dumas fils, Sully Prudhomme, and so on. §Illustrated with figures in text. §A good and rare copy. §Provenance : collections of Edmond Bonnaffé (ex dono), André Lefèvre (his sale, Paris 16 November 1966), Colonel Daniel Sickles (his sale, Paris 28 & 29 October 1992), Edouard-Henri Fischer. % Typographie Monnoyer Le Mans 1889 22,5x33cm relié
