        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.

        King Jury, Havilah, Bowen River

      1890 - Heart shaped engraved pictorial brass plate showing a portrait of King Jury framed by an emu & kangaroo regardant & a xanthorrhoea. Measuring approximately 180 by 245mm. Four small holes punched at the top left and right hand sides to allow for necklace. Queensland, c. A rare example of an Aboriginal King Plate in excellent condition. King plates, or breast plates, were originally adapted from the ornamental gorgets worn by officers in the British army in the eighteenth century. The king plates can be seen as a development of the long tradition of gift giving to inhabitants of the New World, similar plates and medals were used extensively in North America especially during the War of Independance. It was found that prestige of these plates often made the recipients more amenable to colonial expansion. In Australia they were issued by colonial authorities and pastoralists as a way of recognising local tribal leaders and as such are a fascinating example of cross-cultural exchange. The earliest example was presented to King Bungaree by Governor Lachlan Macquarie in 1815 and the practise continued across the country for over a century. King Jury's heart-shaped plate is particularly unusual as most of the king plates were crescent shape. T The portrait in the centre of the plate is equally rare. he regardant emu and kangaroo were commonly used symbols on these breast plates. Indeed, they appear on 19 of the 33 king plates in the National Museum of Australia's collection. The use of these two animals as symbols of Australia stretches back to 1806 when the Bowman flag was flown at Richmond, New South Wales. They would, of course, later be adopted on the national coat of arms. Although, these breastplates were often made locally, there are examples from Queensland that were made as far away as Sydney (for Billy Hippie, King of Minnon), and even London (for Peter, King of Tchanning). This last also bears images of the kangaroo and the emu. Havilah was a cattle station just north of Mackay, Queensland. It was close to Collinsville, where coal was mined as early as 1866.

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

      Wien, Wilhelm Braumüller, 1890. 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. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).

        The Poetical Works and Other Writings

      London: Reeves & Turner, 1883 [and 1890]. Five volumes, including supplement, 8vo. 366 + 573 + 387 + 493 + 201 pp. Original decorated cloth. Front joint of vol. 1 split, other handling wear. THEODORE WATTS-DUNTON'S ANNOTATED COPY. This set bears Watts-Dunton's bookplate and is extensively annotated by him. There are 202 pages that have annotations for a total of 8521 words. Twenty-one pages have a hundred or more words of pencil notes on them. The English critic and poet Watts-Dunton (1832-1914) was closely aligned with many of the great poets and writers of his day, including Rossetti, George Borrow, William Morris, Swinburne, and Tennyson. Swinburne came to "The Pines" in 1879 and lived there with Watts-Dunton until his death in 1909. Watts-Dunton is credited with curing Swinburne of his alcoholism. "But it was not only in his published work that Mr Watts-Dunton's influence on the literary life of his time was potent. His long and intimate association with Rossetti and Swinburne made him, no doubt, a unique figure in the world of letters; but his own grasp of metrical principle and of the historic perspective of the glories of English poetry made him, among the younger generation, the embodiment of a great tradition of literary criticism which could never cease to command respect" (Enc. Brittanica, 1911).

        Wood type

      1890 - An assortment of over 200 pieces of wooden type, including two large indexes shaped like pointing hands, a dial with numbers 0 through 9, over 70 ornaments and fancy brackets, 25 corner pieces, and an array of borders in different patterns and lengths. The first wood type catalogue was published by Darius Wells in March 1828 to meet the need for large, cheap type for broadsides; wood was the perfect material, being half the cost of metal type, lightweight, and with a smooth, even surface. Many other manufactories joined the market, the most noted being William H. Page, Vanderburgh, and Hamilton. The type in this set comes from a few different sources. One large hand and many of the extension dashes and stars can be found in the Morgans & Wilcox catalogue for 1890. The other hand is from the William H. Page catalogue from 1878. Several more pieces, such as the wooden pointers, can be seen in a Hamilton Manufacturing catalogue from 1899. An interesting set illustrating the history of printing, in fine condition.

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1890 - Small quarto. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in red morocco, decorations to boards gilt, two raised bands, titles to spine gilt, with inset coloured onlay to front cover replicating the frontispiece, inner dentelles, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Some light spotting and browning to a few leaves otherwise an excellent copy in a fine binding. Contains 20 coloured enlargements from Tenniel's illustrations to "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". First published edition. Presentation copy, inscribed on the half-title, "For Margery, from the author, Mar. 25 1890." The original printing of this condensed version of Alice was discarded by Dodgson in much the same way as its 1865 predecessor. Five hundred copies were sent for issue in the USA but even these were apparently destroyed. This 1890 printing exists in at least three states, the present example with "Price Four Shillings" on the title page being the earliest. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
