        Lectures Notes from Courses on Agency and Partnership Taught by Prof.

      1890. Lecture Notes Compiled by a Student at the University of Michigan Law School in 1890-1891 [Manuscript]. [Lieghley, I.A.]. [Wells, William P (1831-1891)]. [Lectures Notes from Courses on Agency and Partnership Taught by Prof. Wells]. [Ann Arbor, October 3, 1890-March 4, 1891]. 161 [i.e. 191] pp. Quarto (9" x 6"). Quarter cloth over pebbled paper. Light rubbing to boards, heavier rubbing with some wear to extremities, hinges cracked, binding still intact. Light toning to interior, content in clear hand to rectos and versos of pp. 1-186, occasional annotations to final 28 leaves, including an index, additional annotations to endleaves, newspaper obituary of Prof. Wells affixed to rear endleaf. * This notebook offers an opportunity to "audit" two courses taught at the University of Michigan in the early 1890s by one of its leading professors. These appear to be notes taken in class. Lieghley added an index at a later point. The notes indicate the durability of the lecture format at Michigan, but with some influence from the new case-method system. Lieghley signed the front pastedown and noted his membership in the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. The lower part of the page contains a note stating the date of Professor Wells's death. Wells, the Kent Professor of Law, taught at the university from 1874 to 1891. After Thomas M. Cooley, he was the most distinguished member of Michigan's faculty in the late nineteenth century. Little is known about Lieghley. Martindale directories from 1890s and early 1900s indicate that he had a private practice in Detroit..

        4 eigenh. Briefe mit U.

      Berlin und Leipzig, 1888 bis 1890. - Zusammen (3¼+6½+5¼+1½=) 16½ SS. auf 11 Bll. 4to und 8vo. Mit zwei Beilagen (s. u.). Inhaltsreiche Korrespondenz mit dem Politiker und Volkswirtschaftler Gerhard von Schulze-Gaevernitz (1864–1943), u. a. über dessen geplante Habilitation, die zeitgen. Wirkung von Carlyles Arbeiten, divergierende Interessen von Unternehmern und Arbeitern, Schieds- & Einigungskammern, die geschichtliche Entwicklung der englischen Arbeiterfrage, Arbeitsbörsen u. v. m. – „[.] Wie viele Mühe habe ich mir nicht gegeben, den Deutschen die geschichtliche Entwicklung der englischen Arbeiterfrage klar zu machen. Alles vergebens! Von den Hochmögenden hat keiner etwas davon gelesen. Wie oft mußte ich von Freunden hören, es sei nun genug der Wiederholung des schon so oft von uns Gehörten! Und doch zeigt sich, daß Alles noch nicht oft genug gesagt worden ist [.] Wenn z. B. Herr Beumer die Frage aufwirft, wie es denn möglich sei, daß in England die Arbeitgeber mit den Arbeitern auf dem Fuße der Gleichberechtigung verhandeln[,] u. antwortet: weil die englischen Arbeiter das Zusammenwirken von Arbeit & Kapital als unumstößl. Nothwendigkeit anerkannten, so enthält dies einen ganz gefährlichen Irrthum: 1. die irrige Vorstellung, als beruhten die Einigungsämter auf der Identität der Interessen von Arbeit & Kapital, während sie die Organisation des Gegensatzes dieser Interessen sind. Sie sind nichts anderes als die Organisation der Arbeitsbörsen, auf der die entgegenstehenden Interessen von Käufer & Verkäufer ihren Ausdruck finden – in zivilisierter Weise. Von einer Identität der Interessen ist nicht in höherem Maße die Rede als von einer Identität der Interessen von Grubenbesitzern u. Eisenbahnverwaltungen. Die Identität beginnt erst da, wo die einseitige Übertreibung in der Geltendmachung der Interessen der Grubenbesitzer die Eisenbahnverwaltungen ruinieren würde. Eben diese Identität der Interessen u. keine weitere wird auch von den englischen Arbeitern & ihren Führern anerkannt. Nach Herrn Beumer aber sollte man meinen, die englischen Arbeitersekretäre erblickten in der Ansammlung von Kapital & in einem luxuriösen Leben der Fabrikanten ein Arbeiterinteresse. Da guckt der Fuchsschwanz denn doch allzu deutlich heraus; aber doch bin ich nicht sicher, daß die Predigt nicht gläubige Gänse findet [.]" (a. d. Br. v. 25. Dezember 1889). – Mit einigen Stecknadeldurchstichen im linken oberen Rand; stellenweise mit kleinen interlinear glossierten Transkriptionen von fremder Hand und zahlr. Unterstreichungen in Blei- und Farbstift. – Der Br. v. 9. Januar 1890 auf einem an ihn gerichteten ganzseitigen eigenhändigen Brief des Politikers und Nationalökonomen Otto Arendt (1854–1936) und mit einem e. Antwortentwurf an denselben (¾ S.). – Beiliegend zwei Blatt mit Lektüreexzerpten von nicht identifizierter Hand (je 1 S. 8vo). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Fixed Bayonets: A Complete System of Fence for the British Magazine Rifle, Explaining the Use of Point, Edges, and Butt, Both in Offence and Defence; Comprising also a Glossary of English, French, and Italian Terms Common to the Art of Fencing... Illustrated by J.E. Breun

      London: William Clowes and Sons, 1890.. First edition. Large 8vo. (xii), 183, (1) pp., interleaved throughout with blank leaves. Publisher's full vellum gilt lettered to the spine and upper board with an illustration of a rifle with a fixed bayonet to the latter, the author's name and crest in gilt to the lower board, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Frontispiece portrait and 23 plates. Slight loss of gilt to the spine, a little light wear, a lovely copy. Hutton's first book, "Swordmanship", was published in 1862 and following his retirement from the army in 1865 he "...devoted himself to the practice of modern fencing... His chief work, published in 1889, was devoted to the sabre - Cold Steel (a title sometimes transferred by his friends from the book to the writer)... In 1890 he published Fixed Bayonets, in which he insisted that a competently wielded bayonet should beat a good swordsman, but his views of bayonet fighting were regarded in the army as too theoretical for modern practical instruction. He retorted by deploring military reliance on Italian theories of swordsmanship to the exclusion of effective French practice." (ODNB). Hutton left no direct dependents on his demise in 1910 and a large proportion of his collection of books on fencing and related subjects was bequeathed to the Victoria and Albert Museum, the "Hutton Bequest" housed in the National Art Library. The standard copies of this book appear in brown cloth replicating the same design as here. The publisher's name appears at the foot of the spine suggesting that this was either from a deluxe edition with an unspecified limitation or perhaps one from a small batch produced for the author's presentation. The appearance of this copy certainly sounds similar to those donated in the "Hutton Bequest", being bound in vellum and with the author's name and crest appearing in gilt to the lower board.

        THE MARBLE FAUN: OR, THE ROMANCE OF MONTE BENI

      [Printed at the Riverside Press for] Houghton, Miflin and Company, Boston and New York 1890 - mm (). Two volumes. QUITE PRETTY CONTEMPORARY SKY BLUE CRUSHED MOROCCO, LAVISHLY GILT, covers with multiple plain and decorative rules enclosing a central panel semé with gilt daisies, raised bands, spine compartments densely gilt with central daisy enclosed by small tools and filigree cornerpieces, turn-ins bordered by cresting gilt rolls, floral cornerpieces, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With 51 photogravure plates, including a portrait of Hawthorne and representations of Italian art and architecture. Front pastedowns and verso of front free endpapers with bookplate of Edward Karfiol. Spines just a slightly different shade of blue, but AN ESPECIALLY FINE SET, the bindings lustrous and unworn, and immaculate internally. This is a handsomely bound illustrated edition of Hawthorne's last completed novel, first published in 1860. It is the principal fictive product of the author's European residence from 1853-60, and probably the most brooding, Romantic, and distinctive major work in the Hawthorne canon. It tells the story of the beautiful painter Miriam, the copyist Hilda, and the dashing Count of Monte Beni, whose resemblance to the marble faun of Praxiteles gives the work its title. The illustrations depicting Italian landmarks and famous works of art (including Praxiteles' faun) help transport the reader to the romantic Italian setting. Oddly, the beautifully executed binding here is unsigned; it is clearly not an amateur production, but rather the work of an accomplished workshop. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        "Cherchez, et Vous Trouverez" Collection de 40 Cartes Questions-Devinettes. 12 Collections Differentes

      Epinal: Pellerin et. Cie., Imagerie d"epinal. First Edition presumed. Envelopes. Very Good Plus. Scarce "game" issued by Pellerin, with no other copies located anywhere (not on OCLC) . The object is to find a missing item(s) hidden within the image. You are told what to look for in a riddle caption, which can be a short phrase, or a few lines of dialogue or verse. Most of the time the missing item is a human head, concealed in garment, in shrubbery, in background structures, or the contours of the primary image. The missing item can also be a dog or other animal, an object, or even lettering. Sometimes the same head represents two, the second revealed simply by flipping the card. The quest ranges widely in difficulty, from apparent at first blush to being extremely elusive. The obvious missing items are by no means necessarily inferior -- we can find the artist's visual trickery quite clever and satisfying just the same. The imagery is very much in the style of Pellerin -- line drawings in blue or red, literal, yet also cartoonish, detailed (as conducive to concealment), yet simple, at the same time. N.d., circa 1890. Cards are 11 by 8.5 cm. We have 498 cards, out of 480 cards, based on there having been a dozen sets of forty cards each -- we are told these numbers on each of the envelopes. Thus this would appear a more than complete set, with some duplication, as we noticed going through the cards. We assume that there are 480 different cards, as the duplicates are few and far between, but we can not state this with 100 percent certainty. We also have just ten of the 12 original envelopes, with cards now being stuffed in the envelopes with no knowledge of what came with what. Envelopes are age toned but generally intact and well-preserved. Occasional soiling of the cards. Most cards are clean.

        "THE CROWN EDITION OF BRITISH POETS."

      London: Printed at the Chiswick Press for the British Literary Society, 1890. No. 5 OF 25 COPIES in each case n. Hardcover. Two Dozen Beautiful Inlaid Volumes of Poetry, each One of Just 25 Copies. 175 x 108 mm (6 7/8 x 4 1/4"). 14 works in 24 volumes (from a complete run of 33 works in 77 volumes). No. 5 OF 25 COPIES in each case. VERY FINE ORIGINAL OLIVE GREEN LEVANT MOROCCO, covers each with a graceful frame of leafy branches bearing a dozen inlaid red and white roses, raised bands, spines gilt in one large and four small compartments, the small compartment at head with an inlaid red flower bud on a gilt sprig, larger compartment with a stem blossoming with one red and one white rose, CRIMSON MOROCCO DOUBLURES enclosed by a gilt floral frame and with an inlaid purple morocco crown at center, crimson watered silk endleaves, top edges gilt, MOST VOLUMES UNOPENED OR LARGELY SO. Each volume in a felt-lined black morocco slipcase. EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED with 72 hand-colored engravings and 23 ORIGINAL WATERCOLORS signed by N. Brignot, all with tissue guards. Limitations page with the engraved bookplate of Hannah M. Standish. Spines faded (as almost always with green morocco) to a pleasing olive brown (half a dozen spines unevenly sunned), trivial imperfections internally, but IN EXTRAORDINARILY FINE CONDITION, with virtually no signs of use (being almost entirely unopened), and with the animated inlaid bindings lustrous and unworn. Handsome outside (with their inlaid covers) as well as inside (with their morocco doublures), this is a highly attractive group of poetry volumes that also features a very restricted press run, inserted material (including more than 20 original watercolors), and a distinguished provenance. In addition to poetical works, the volumes contain biographical information on the authors as well as extensive annotations. The set contains works by Samuel Butler (two volumes), Thomas Campbell, Charles Churchill (two volumes), William Collins, William Cowper (three volumes), John Dryden (five volumes), George Herbert, Robert Herrick (two volumes), Sir Walter Raleigh, Samuel Rogers, the Earl of Surrey, Henry Vaughan, Sir Thomas Wyatt, and Edward Young (two volumes). These especially handsome books are in a remarkable state of preservation: all of them open stiffly, and it's clear that in their lifetime, they have been much more cared for than read. Their previous (and very probably original) owner was Hannah M. Standish of Pittsburgh, whose distinguished library was sold on 3 March 1926 at the American Art Association Gallery in New York.

        PHOTOGRAPH OF AN OTTOMAN ODALISQUE IN HAREM DRESS

      Constantinople, Circa 1890's. A late 19th century photograph measuring approximately 11 X 5 5/8 inches; the mount is approximately 14 X 11 inches. The photograph is Near Fine, a stunning portrait with excellent tones and fantastic detail. The mount shows traces of soiling and handling to the front and back, worn corners, and some small pieces of paper stuck along the upper edge. The previous owner wrote their personal information in ink on the lower left corner of the mount: "Return to J.L. Heaton, 1025 Bushwick Ave, Brooklyn" and has further written "A Turkish Odalisque in Harem Dress." An odalisque was a female slave in an Ottoman seraglio. They would serve as an assistant or apprentice to the wives and concubines, and might in time rise in status to become one of them. Most odalisques were part of the Imperial Harem, which is to say, the household of the Sultan. The likelihood that the woman in the portrait was part of the Imperial Harem is quite clear, given the people who took the photograph. The bottom right hand corner shows the signature of Sebah & Joaillier. Pascal Sebah (1823-1886) was a leading photographer in Constantinople, selling images of the city, ancient ruins in the surrounding area, portraits, and local people in traditional costumes to tourists. Sebah's son, Johannes (Jean) (1872-1947) then became involved in the business when he was only 16 years old. Jean grew up to become a talented photographer in his own right, but to profit from his father?'s fame, he signed his photographs J. Pascal Sebah. In 1888, Jean formed a partnership with a Frenchman, Policarpe Joaillier, and thereafter the studio was known as Sebah & Joaillier. The firm of Sebah & Joaillier was named the official photographer of the Sultan, and at his command took photographers all over his empire. Given the time period, the woman in the portrait would have been in the household of Abdul Hamid II, 34th Sultan of the Ottoman Empire - the last Ottoman Sultan to rule with absolute power. His reign fell within a period of decline, during the waning years of the Ottoman Empire. The odalisque is seen in contemporary costume, seated amidst a rug and cushions. The decorated walls, the hookah, and the smoke-filled room are all evocative of the Orientalist style. While both Princeton and the Library of Congress have large collections of Ottoman photographs from this time period, many specifically taken by this firm, the collections mainly highlight the modernization of the Empire, featuring images of architecture, technological advancements, harbors, and the military. Rare indeed are images of this nature, depicting a woman of this station in an environment which was forbidden to all but a few select individuals. (Wheatcroft, LOC, PUL).

Boards faintly rubbed and with a few minor scuffs, first volume with slight silverfish damage affecting margins of a few leaves and fore edges of rear endpapers, intermittent foxing. An excellent set. A handsomely bound set of the UK edition of American poet William Cullen Bryant's monumental monograph on North America, a classic work of Americana which proved to be an instant success when it was first published in the US in 1872?-4. The superb plates were engraved by Robert Hinshelwood, a Scots engraver who emigrated to America in 1835 where he established a considerable reputation for his work on landscapes. His painstaking and highly detailed work was much appreciated not only by the publishing houses that employed him, such as Appleton's and Harper's, but also by the Continental Bank Note Company who for a time employed him producing plates for currency.

        The Nursery Alice

      New York : Macmillan and Company , 1890 Second Edition. The First Color Edition of Alice. Containing Twenty Colored Enlargements from Tenniel's Illustrations to "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" with text adapted to Nursery Readers by Lewis Carroll. It was intended, wrote Carroll, "to be read by children aged from nought to five. To be read? Nay, not so! Say rather to be thumbed, to be cooed over, to be dogs'-eared, to be rumpled, to be kissed..." With this new, younger readership in mind, Carroll rewrote Alice, simplifying and abridging the original text, while Tenniel redrew, enlarged, and coloured 20 of his iconic illustrations. With a 3-page Easter Greeting and a one page Christmas Greeting from the author, and two pages of the works of Lewis Carroll, following the end of the text. The covers, designed and coloured by Gertrude Thomson, has an illustration of Alice asleep under a tree, on the front, with a picture of the March Hare on the back. Glazed cover boards are rubbed and shelf worn along extremities especially at corners, with some age toning and soiling that does not impinge on the cover illustration or title. Interior pages are clean and unmarked, except for prior owner's last name inked to front paste down and short inscription inked to verso of the frontispiece page. Mechanical enlargements of 20 of John Tenniel's illustrations, from the originals and printed in color. Text printed in brown ink. The nursery version of this classic story was conceived by Carroll to be "read, to be cooed over, to be dogs' eared, to be rumpled, to be kissed" by children from nought to five." He rewrote it in a simpler and abridged format of 16 chapters. This so-called second edition, has an interesting publishing/bibliographic history: Edward Evens printed ten thousand copies of the first run on toned paper. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) rejected the entire edition, in sheets, as he felt the illustrations were "far too bright and gaudy" and subsequently the text and illustrations were reprinted. The rejected sheets, all four thousand copies, were sent to the United States and the book was published by Macmillan with a tipped-in preliminary leaf, frontispiece with tissue guard, and a title page dated 1890. (Williams, Madan and Green, p. 147.) Scarce in any condition. A perfect gift for anyone celebrating the 150th anniversary of the first publication of Alice in Wonderland during 2015. This gem of a book is the perfect introduction to Alice, a delight for readers of every age.
