        In Darkest Africa

      New York: Scribner's, 1890 - Two volumes. xv, 529 pp; xv, 472 pp. 6 etchings, 150 woodcut illustrations and maps, 2 facsimiles of pages from Stanley’s notebooks, 2 large folding color maps mounted on linen. Original half dark brown morocco, vellum boards stamped in gilt. Some wear and soiling. Very good. EDITION DE LUXE, one of 250 large paper copies signed by Stanley. This beautiful production is superior in every respect, including the quality of the binding, the paper, and the illustrations, to the ordinary trade edition. Stanley, best remembered for finding Dr. Livingstone, was the greatest journalist-explorer of the nineteenth century. This book tells the harrowing story of his third expedition to central Africa, facing nearly insurmountable obstacles and dangers passing through the almost impenetrable jungle of the great Congo Forest. Stanley set off with 646 men but only 246 survived. The expedition helped lead to the foundation of British East Africa, and in along the way, the Ruwenzori mountain range and Lake Albert Edward Nyanza were discovered.

        Binding, Fine- Birkenruth] La Reine Marie-Antoinette

      Valadon et Cie, Editeurs, Boussod 1890 - Bound by Birkenruth in full maroon morocco with five raised bands to spine and decorative gilt tooling to front board and spine. Gilt turn-ins and marbled endpapers. Top edge gilt. Bound by Johanna Birkenruth, with her stamp. A rather plain and unimpressive binding for Birkenruth, and this must be a very early example of her work, predating her later association with Frank Karslake’s exhibition of bindings by women binders in 1897 and the founding of the Guild of Women Bookbinders in 1898. Boards slightly edgeworn and marked. Ink inscription to first blank. Scattered foxing. Color frontispiece portrait engraving. With 28 additional engravings and photographic plates. Text in French.

        L'alchimiste Eau-forte,

      1890 - Eau-forte 43,5 x 31,5 cm sur feuille de papier Japon 61 x 47 cm par Fernand Desmoulin (1) d'après Théodule Ribot (2) Epreuve d'artiste avec remarque (portrait du graveur) et dédicacée à la mine de plomd : "A mon ami J. Uzanne bien affectueusement F. Desmoulin" Cette estampe est titrée L'Alchimiste au verso à la mine de plomb. Cette acquisition récente faite auprès d'un marchand en Italie (à Tarente, talon de la botte italienne), nous indique une amitié que nous ne connaissions pas à Joseph Uzanne. Curieusement le graveur Fernand Desmoulin (3) n'apparaît pas dans la liste des personnalités figurant dans la table générale des Figures Mariani. On aurait pu s'y attendre. Nous n'avons pas retrouvé la trace de ce tableau de Ribot dans les collections publiques. Bertrand Hugonnard-Roche 1) Fernand Desmoulin (1853-1914), dessinateur, illustrateur et aquafortiste français renommé. Il a son musée à Brantôme (24). (2) Théodule Augustin Ribot (1823-1891), peintre réaliste français. (3) C’est à l’âge de 50 ans, que Fernand Desmoulins artiste peintre prisé par les célébrités politiques, scientifiques et littéraires de la Troisième République, assiste à une séance de table tournante chez Victorien Sardou. De retour à son atelier, il éprouve alors la nécessité de prendre une feuille et un crayon. Aussitôt, sa main tremble, sursaute, pour finalement courir sur le papier, inscrivant des spirales désordonnées, sans aucun contrôle de la raison. C’est ainsi que Desmoulins réalisera des dizaines de dessins spirites, opérant dans l’obscurité, à l’envers ou de biais, la tête enfermée dans un sac, ne pouvant rien diriger ni voir. En 10 ou 20 mn, il était capable de produire un dessin médiumnique alors qu’il avait besoin de cinq à six jours pour exécuter ses propres toiles. Certains dessins sont plus élaborés, d’autres, en revanche, se couvrent d’inscriptions, comme les bribes d’une conversation avec l’au-delà. Desmoulin expose ses œuvres médiumniques lors du congrès spirite de 1900 et en 1901. Les collections du peintre sont au musée de Brantôme en Dordogne, sa veuve ayant donné ses œuvres à la ville qu’il aimait, située en plein cœur du Périgord Vert. (SOURCE). TRÈS RARE.

        LEAVES OF GRASS

      ca. 1890[?], n.p. - 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. 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.

        The Gentle Art of Making Enemies:

      (Antwerp) New York: Frederick Stokes & Brother. 1890 - Bound with the orig. grey printed paper wrappers, in full dark green crushed morocco, elaborate gilt floral borders, raised bands, gilt compartments, red & brown morocco labels, gilt dentelles. v.g. The Gentle Art of Making Enemies, published partly in response to his infamous libel trial brought against John Ruskin, Whistler had asked his friend Sheridan Ford to edit it. Prior to publication however, the relationship broke down and Whistler chose instead to edit the work himself; it was published by William Heinemann in 1890. Ford, determined to publish his own version, printed an edition of 2000 copies in Antwerp. He was followed to Antwerp by Whistler?s lawyer Sir George Lewis who successfully imprisoned Ford and embargoed all 2000 copies. Subsequently Ford issued another pirated edition with the unauthorised imprint of Frederick Stokes & Brother. Although another Paris edition was suppressed by Lewis, copies of the ?Frederick Stokes? edition made their way to America. Ford, in his initial ?note? commends ?the book to Mr Whistler?s enemies, with the soothing assurance that should each of them purchase a copy the edition will be exhausted in a week? A collection of letters and articles chronicling in large part his many grievances against his acquaintances and friends. Included is Ruskin?s criticism of Whistler?s painting Nocturne in Black and Gold ? The Falling Rocket that propelled Whistler to the libel courts: ?For Mr. Whistler's own sake, no less than for the protection of the purchaser, Sir Coutts Lindsay ought not to have admitted works into the gallery in which the ill-educated conceit of the artist so nearly approached the aspect of wilful imposture. I have seen, and heard, much of Cockney impudence before now; but never expected to hear a coxcomb ask two hundred guineas for flinging a pot of paint in the public?s face.? [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        AUTOGRAPH BOOK BELONGING TO THE JOURNALIST OSCAR GRUEN, WITH HUNDREDS OF ENTRIES OBTAINED AT THE TWENTIETH ZIONIST CONGRESS (1937) AND THE EVIAN CONFERENCE (1938)

      (). Original boards, 4to. Oscar Gruen (1890-1953) was the founding editor of the first Jewish news bureau, the Juedische Pressezentrale, which published a weekly edition in Zurich from 1917 to 1940. Gruen began the Pressezentrale in the wake of World War I in order to counteract what he saw as international agitation against Jews. In 1919, Gruen was a member of the committee which, under the leadership of Louis Marshall, presented the Jewish case to the Paris Peace Conference and secured the inclusion of the "minority rights clause" in the various constitutions of the newly established states in Central Europe. As editor of one of the worlds leading Jewish periodicals, Gruen witnessed firsthand many of the most important Jewish-related events of the time, including the 20th Zionist Congress (1937) and the Evian Conference (1938) . This autograph book records more than 300 signatures and inscriptions from the delegates and attendees of these two important conferences. Signatures include: Chaim Weizmann, Marcus Ehrenpreis, Stephen S. Wise, A. S. Yahudah, Abba Hillel Silver, Elias Tcherikower, Cyrus Adler, Judah Magnes, Felix Warburg, David de Sola Pool, Louis Lipsky, Lord Marley, Menachem Ussishkin and a great many others. Also found within the album are many inscribed visiting cards as well as a few candid snapshot photographs of conference attendees. Very Good condition. (RAB-62-3)

        Mémoire présenté au concours pour le prix du Roi Oscar II. Sur les intégrales de fonctions à multiplicateurs et leur application au développement des fonctions abéliennes en séries trigonométriques. Autograph manuscript, 278 leaves written on rectos only. Undated, but first published in Acta Mathematica 13 (1890), pp. 4-174.

      [1890] - Important autograph manuscript in which Appell generalises the theory of Abelian functions, due principally to Abel, Jacobi, Riemann and Weierstrass, to a class of functions he terms ?fonctions à multiplicateurs?, and investigates their integrals and Fourier expansions. ?His scientific work consists of a series of brilliant solutions of particular problems, some of the greatest difficulty. He was a technician who used the classical methods of his time to answer open questions, work out details, and make natural extensions in the mainstream of the late nineteenth century? (DSB), which cites the present paper as one of his most notable works. Appell?s memoir won honorary second prize in the competition mentioned on the title, the first prize going to Henri Poincaré for his great work ?Sur le problème de trois corps et les équations de la dynamique.? In his statement on behalf of the prize committee, Charles Hermite wrote about Appell?s contribution: ?Le mémoire de M. Appell, sur les intégrales de fonctions à multiplicateurs et leur application au développement des fonctions abéliennes en séries trigonométriques, est également digne du plus haut intérêt. M. Appell a ouvert un champ nouveau dans la théorie des fonctions d?une variable, en donnant l?origine d?une catégorie de transcendants, douées de propriétés extrêmement remarquables, dont il a fait une étude approfondie et qui sont appelées à jouer un grand rôle. C?est, à notre époque, un des plus importants résultats de l?Analyse que ces découvertes de nouvelles fonctions auxquelles s?attachent les noms illustres de?Abel et de Jacobi, de Göpel, de Rosenhaim, de Weierstrass et Riemann. M. Appell s?est surtout inspiré de Riemann; son beau Mémoire, ceux de M. Poincaré sur les fonctions fuchsiennes, d?autres travaux français continuent l?oeuvre de ces grands géomètres.? No manuscripts by Appell are listed on ABPC.?In 1885 Gösta Mittag-Leffler could look back at a successful start on his career as the first professor in mathematics of the newly founded Stockholms högskola (later to become Stockholm University). After his education and doctor?s degree from Uppsala, he had spent three years in Paris and Berlin while he forged firm bonds with many leading European mathematicians. He then turned to Helsinki where he broadened his horizons as a dedicated and strong-willed professor. Four years later, in 1880, he returned to his native Stockholm. The new principles on which Stockholms högskola was founded gave Mittag-Leffler the opportunity to work out his ideas of how mathematical education and research should be organized and promoted. He attracted several talented postgraduates, and managed to engage Sofia Kovalevskaya as lecturer and later full professor at the department. The journal Acta Mathematica which he founded in 1882 was right from the beginning received as a leading international publication. It established itself as an effective transmitter of new mathematical ideas between France and Germany in the aftermath of the Franco-Prussian War (1870-71).?One of Mittag-Leffler?s inventive ideas in promoting Acta Mathematica was to turn to King Oscar II of Sweden and Norway, both for financial support of the project and as the first enlisted subscriber. In 1884 another grand idea from Mittag-Leffler had matured. Again involving King Oscar, he now wanted to arrange an international prize competition in mathematics honouring the 60th birthday of the king. It seems that Mittag-Leffler first revealed his plan to Kovalevskaya. We find a short reference in a letter to her from 4 May 1884. A month later it is clear from another letter by Mittag-Leffler that she had by then discussed the prize with Karl Weierstrass. In July Mittag-Leffler for the first time briefed Weierstrass on the plans.?It was first decided to form a small prize jury consisting only of three members: Mittag-Leffler himself, acting as administrative and coordinative liaison with his mentors and friends Karl Weierstrass in

        Sydney from North Shore

      [Title from manuscript caption in the negative]. 1890 - 1900. Photographic panorama, comprised of six bromide prints, each 220 x 280 mm, forming a contiguous sequence, 220 x 1680 mm, on original linen backing, a couple of small surface flaws but overall in fine condition; unframed. This spectacular panorama of Sydney Harbour appears to have been taken from the Holtermann Tower, in the grounds of Sydney Church of England Grammar School ("Shore" School). It was from this tower, in 1875, that Bernard Holtermann and Charles Bayliss took their famous panoramic photograph, known as the Holtermann Panorama. In the 1890s the tower would still have afforded the best views of the harbour from the North Shore.

        The Poetical Works and Other Writings

      London: Reeves & Turner, 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).

        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

        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.

        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.
