        Veterans of the Little Big Horn Photograph by D.F. Barry. No date, but likely c.1890

      D.F.Barry, Superior, Wisconsin, no date. (c.1890)., 1890, Not Relevant, Book Condition: Very Good Condition, First Edition. Photograph of Surviving Members of Custer's 7th Cavalry. An interesting photograph, likely taken during a series of events and speeches marking the ten-year anniversary of the Battle of Little Big Horn held at Fort Custer in 1886. The picture, taken on the front steps of a large home, shows an ornately dressed officer seated at the centre surrounded by five additional soldiers, eight women, and one male in civilian dress. The man at the centre is likely Lieut. Andrew Nave of the 7th Cavalry. Other identifiable officers are Jonathan Merrill, Capt. S. Barcer, Lieut. Maron and Lieut. Brennan. Among the women is Mrs. J. McDougall, likely the wife of Capt. Thomas McDougall, one of the officers to whom Custer sent desperate messages in his final moments. Thirteen of the subjects and their positions are identified on a small slip of paper accompanying the photograph. While still in residence in Bismark, North Dakota, Barry went to Fort Custer to capture scenes from the large anniversary gathering of veterans of the Little Big Horn. The present picture was likely reproduced from the original plate after Barry settled in Superior, Wisconsin in 1890. The label on the reverse identifies the artist as D.F. Barry. Photographs of ALL noted Indian Chiefs. Photographer. 1812 Tower Ave. Superior, Winsconsin. Barry often made reproductions of earlier works and constant strong sales afford him an influential position in his adopted city. Most popular was his series of Indian Chiefs, including such notables as Chief Gall. Little John, and Sitting Bull. A lovely photograph, from an important western photographer. Superior, Wisconsin. c.1890. 7 x 5 inches. Blindstamped and written attribution in lower portion, contemporary paper label on verso. The B of Barry has passed straight through the print. Clean. Very good. Quantity Available: 1. Category: General Custer; Inventory No: 188468.

        The Golden Bough A Study in Comparative Religion

      London and New York: Macmillan and Co.,, 1890. First Edition. In Two Volumes. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green cloth, title gilt to spines, large mistletoe branch block to the front boards, dark green coated endpapers. Frontispiece to volume I. Cloth a little rubbed, and some bubbling on the boards, string-notch to the front board of volume I, but overall carefully restored, the spines relined, and the hinges neatly professionally repaired, presents and handles well, a very good set. This first edition of the Frazer's groundbreaking study of comparative religion is uncommon. "Frazer's true subject is nothing less than humanity's long upward struggle towards an understanding of itself and the world. In Frazer's view that movement towards the light began in earliest times with the priest?-king employing magic to compel the gods to do his bidding, followed by a religious stage in which humans admit their powerlessness and now beseech rather than command the gods. Thus for Frazer religion is a necessary stage in mental evolution, but one that is based on mistaken premisses; it has now in turn been superseded by a world-view based on rationality: positive science. In focusing on the pattern of the dying and reviving god that lay at the heart of the religions of the ancient Mediterranean, while never mentioning Christianity, Frazer was more than a little disingenuous. In truth he was engaged all the while in a covert campaign against religion in general and Christianity in particular and may perhaps be seen, along with H. G. Wells, as the most important exponent of secularism in the twentieth century" (Robert Ackerman, Frazer's most recent biographer in ODNB).

        Chinatown, San Francisco.

      Taber & Co. San Francisco c.s 1890 - Collection of six albumen prints pasted on contemporary boards (24 x 30 cm), number, title and photographer's credit in negative. List: (5832) Opium Den underground, by Flash light. Smoker caught lighting his pipe. The keeper in the door had extinguished the lights; (3725) Chinese merchants. Chinatown, S.F., Cal.; (4766) Rag picker's Alley, Chinatown, S.F.; (3723) Chinatown S.F., Cal.; (B1177) Chinatown, S.F., Cal.; (3007) Chinese Restaurant, Dupont Street, San Francisco. At the end of the 19th century, the Chinese community of San Francisco was the largest in the country, representing approximately a fifth of the Chinese diaspora in the USA. During the 1880s and 1890s, Chinatown faced problems from the inside - prostitution, criminality, gambling, opium dens and gang wars - as well as from the outside. The 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act prohibited all immigration of Chinese labourers into the United States, which inevitably created racial tensions in the city. With assistance from the Chinese government and the embassy the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association was established the same year aimed at providing social services and resisting discrimination against Chinese immigrants. Isaiah West Taber (1830-1912) was an American daguerreotypist and photographer. Well known for his portraits of Californian notables, he based his photography studio in New York before moving back to California and starting to record life in the streets of San Francisco. The 1906 San Francisco earthquake destroyed his studio together with all his collection of negatives, marking the end of his career. Huping Ling, Allan W.

      Leipzig, B.G. Teubner, 1890-95. Royal8vo. Bound in 3 contemp. hcalf. Raised bands, gilt lettering. Title-pages with stamps.. XII,717,(1); XIII,(1),400; VIII,649,(1) pp. Internally fine and clean.. Scarce first edition of Schröder's masterwork. In this monumental work Schröder summarized and extended the work of George Boole, Augustus De Morgan, Hugh MacColl, and especially Charles Peirce. The 'Vorlesungen' established mathematical logic as a dicipline in itself, provided a source for Tarski to develop the modern algebraic theory and gave an extensive bibliography of the history of logic. The relational concepts that pervade Russell and Whitehead's 'Principia Mathematica' are very much owed to Schröder's 'Vorlesungen', which is cited in Principia's preface and in Russell's 'Principles of Mathematics'.A second part of volume 2 was edited by Eugen Müller and published posthumously in 1905

The authorized text was published the following year by Reeves & Turner with added material. "First published in the COMMONWEAL in 1890 as a direct response to Bellamy's LOOKING BACKWARD (1888), Morris's dream-vision calls up his beloved 14th century. Squalor, poverty, and all signs of urban industrialization have vanished. Neither politics nor family tyranny constrains humankind. All do as they please in their own manner and have as a reward a sense of creation and service." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 1-69. ". NEWS FROM NOWHERE is not, as has so often been said, a turning back to an earlier kind of civilization, but rather a look forward to what might be when men once more assert better control over the things they have themselves created -- whether it be society itself or the machines which are so much a part of that society." - Lewis, Utopian Literature, pp. 134-36.

        EARLY PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM DEPICTING SCENES AROUND CANYON FERRY AND POOR MAN'S GULCH, MONTANA, CIRCA 1890s].

      [N.p., likely Helena. ca. 1890]. - Twenty-one stiff album leaves with one black-and-white silver gelatin photograph mounted on each recto. Images approximately 4 1/2 x 6 3/4 inches. Oblong octavo. Contemporary three-quarter calf and cloth, gilt. Spine chipped, rear joint detached, extremities worn. Minor thumbsoiling to album leaves. Good. An interesting album of what appears to be a family camping excursion in the Montana wilderness sometime in the late 19th century. The images depict a family of nine (five adults and four children) who have headed out into the rough and wild terrain of Montana by wagon to camp in a large tent, hunt, and fish. Several of the photographs show the family standing in front of the tent, with one depicting the children holding long rifles in front of the tent, with their covered wagon in the background. There are also scenes of both men and children fishing along a river, early miners' cabins, and depictions of the stunning beauty of the surrounding landscape. A pencil inscription on the front pastedown reads: "Album @ & near Canyon Ferry, Mt. near Helena." One album leaf is captioned in pencil: "Miners cabins Poor Man's Gulch." A wonderful look at the rural life in Montana, with clear images of a time and place rarely captured on film, and illustrative of a growing trend towards naturalism in 19th-century America.
