        In Darkest Africa or, The Quest, Rescue, and Retreat of Emin, Governor of Equatoria

      New York: Charles Scribner's, 1890. First American edition of Stanley's classic work. Octavo, 2 volumes, cartographic endpapers. Two steel-engraved portrait frontispieces, two photogravure plates on India paper, mounted, 36 wood-engraved plates on India, mounted, 6 etchings by M.G. Montbard, 4 colored maps and plans; the 2 larger folding maps mounted on linen. In near fine condition with some light rubbing to the extremities, small repair to the map of volume two. A very sharp example. Stanley and Emin entered Bagamoyo on their donkeys, some way ahead of their caravan, on 4 December, 1889. It was sensational news. Emin was safe, although the expedition to relieve him had cost the lives of at least 700 people. With the good journalist's facility for rapid reporting, Stanley began his account of the rescue at the Hotel Victoria, Cairo, on 25 January 1890, working on it continuously for fifty days at the rate of 20 printed pages per day. The first portion of the manuscript was delivered to the printer's on 12 March and the last proof sheet returned for printing by Clowes on 3 June. Hosken p. 189

A presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper 'To the Lord Provost Muir of Glasgow, for courteous hospitality and attention to the author with his special compliments Henry M. Stanley July 3rd 1890 London' Stanley ranks alongside Burton and Livingstone as one of the most important of the nineteenth-century African exporers. The DNB states: ?[he did] more than any other explorer to solve the mysteries of African geography, and open up the interior of the dark continent to European trade, settlement and administration.? Following the fall of Khartoum, Stanley was entrusted with leading a rescue mission since the remaining Egyptian force under Emin Pasha was thought to be in grave danger. He was however saddled with other aims, not least to further British colonial interests in the area from Lake Victoria to the Indian Ocean, and to explore the north-eastern sector of the Congo State. It took the party five months to reach Wadelai only to find that Emin Pasha did not feel the need to be rescued, having made a peace of sorts with the local tribes. To make matters worse, three quarters of Stanley's rear-guard en route had perished due to lack of provisions. Despite this failure, Stanley managed to fulfil the additional aims of the journey. He traced the course of the Semliki River, discovered Ruwenzori, provided ethnographic data on the Pygmies and set up the British East African Protectorate.

        Atlas der Hautkrankheiten. 72 Tafeln in Chromolithographie mit beschreibendem Texte, 2 Bände.

      Wien, Wilhelm Braumüller, 1890. Vollständiges Werk in 2 Bänden (Tafelband und Textband). Braune Original-Halblederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln im Format 36 x 30 cm; Buchdeckel mit bräunlichen Marmorbezügen und Lederecken. Hauptwerk des österreichischen Dermatologen Isidor Neumann (1832 - 1906), mit dem dieser an sein bereits 1869 erschienenes Handbuch der Hautkrankheiten anknüpfte. Neumann übernahm 1881 die Leitung der ersten klinischen Abteilung für Syphilis sowie den Lehrstuhl für Syphilidologie an der Universität Wien. Die Erforschung der Syphilis und deren Behandlung sollten in den folgenden Jahrzehnten im Mittelpunkt seiner Forschungen stehen. Zugleich beschäftigte er sich als einer der ersten Vertreter seines Fachs mit der mikroskopischen Anatomie von Hautkrankheiten, ein weiteres zentrales Arbeitsgebiet bildete die Mykologie. Auch die Entwicklung der Strahlentherapie in der Wiener Dermatologie ist eng mit seinem Namen verbunden (zur Bedeutung Neumanns vor allem Karl Heinz Tragl: Chronik der Wiener Krankenanstalten, Wien, Böhlau Verlag, 2007, S. 72 f.). Neumann trat auch als Berater der österreichischen Regierung in Erscheinung und übte entsprechenden Einfluß auf die Entwicklung seines Faches aus; so ist es vor allem seinen Bemühungen zu danken, daß die Dermatologie und auch die Syphilidologie an der Wiener Universität Anerkennung als eigenständige Prüfungsdisziplinen fanden. Der Atlas enthält 72 großformatige chromolithographische Tafeln, der separate Textband jeweils zum Teil mehrseitige Erläuterungen für jede Tafel. Buchrücken und Deckelbezüge partiell etwas berieben, Textband am Kapital etwas eingekerbt. Sonst beide Großbände in sehr gutem Zustand; Tafeln und Textseiten sauber und nahezu fleckenfrei, allenfalls vereinzelt Tafelrückseiten etwas gebräunt. In toto sehr gutes Exemplar des sehr seltenen, aufwendig gestalteten Atlanten, bei dem es sich um eines der bedeutendsten dermatologischen Illustrationswerkes des späteren 19. Jahrhunderts handelt.

        The Influence of Sea Power upon History 1660-1783. [First UK Edition]. FIRST UK EDITION IN FULL MOROCCO

      Sampson, Low, Marston & Co, 1890. 8vo., First UK Edition, with 18 plates containing 24 plans of naval battles, 3 full-page maps and large folding map; handsomely bound in blue full morocco, sides with gilt frame border, back with raised bands ruled in gilt, second and fourth compartments lettered and ruled in gilt, all other compartments tooled with anchor in gilt, gilt top, uncut, gilt blocking from original upper board and backstrip mounted on new and separate preliminaries, a most attractive copy ideal as a gift or for presentation. Mahan's most celebrated work, written whilst still a captain and first published in Boston earlier the same year. It is here that Mahan coins the term 'sea power' and in a masterly opening chapter defines the elements of this concept. Thereafter he embarks on a stage-by-stage analysis of the maritime conflicts that resulted in Britain's naval supremacy, illustrating his strategic assessments with a flood of examples. After some while in the doldrums, Mahan's reputation as a naval historian and strategist is once again on the rise. Albion, p.211; Hattendorf, A2b; NMM V/1 514; Sandler 2196

        LEAVES OF GRASS

      n.p.: , ca. 1890[?]. n.p., ca. 1890[?]. This manuscript can perhaps best be described as a most elegant commonplace book: our unknown scribe has lettered the title page "My Leaves" in red majuscules, and followed it with a collection of favorite passages from Whitman's best-known work, copied out in a pleasing humanist hand. The manuscript isn't signed or dated, but the style of the writing and the binding suggest that the creator was likely inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement that flourished during the final decades of the 19th century and first years of the 20th. Whether this was a personal treasure or a valued gift, it has been very carefully preserved over the years, and shows few signs of use.. 232 x 180 mm. (9 1/8 x 7"). [46] leaves with text on recto only. Original limp vellum, gilt titling, green silk ties threaded through both covers. In a contemporary (original?) hinged wooden box. With burnished gold initial at beginning of each excerpt.Occasional naturally occurring variations in color of vellum both to the binding and to a half dozen leaves, a couple of pages with small ink stains of no consequence, otherwise a very pleasing specimen featuring a lovely hand, a well-preserved binding, and leaves that are clean, smooth, and fresh.This manuscript can perhaps best be described as a most elegant commonplace book: our unknown scribe has lettered the title page "My Leaves" in red majuscules, and followed it with a collection of favorite passages from Whitman's best-known work, copied out in a pleasing humanist hand.
