First edition. In Darkest Africa is the celebrated account of Stanley's 1887-1889 expedition to Lake Albert, to relieve the German physician and scientist Eduard Schnitzer (known as Emin Pasha). Following the Mahdist uprising (which had led to the death of Gordon in 1885), Emin Pasha, the governor of Equatorial Sudan, had fled Sudan for Wadelai, close to Lake Albert, where he was trapped. However, he had been able to send letters back to Europe to alert friends to his plight, and these letters had provoked great concern for Emin's safety and an expedition was proposed by William Mackinnon, the Chairman of the British India Steam Navigation Company, which Stanley was asked to lead. In 1887, Stanley arrived at Zanzibar and then travelled around the Cape to the mouth of the Congo, from where he made his way to Leopoldville and thence to along the Congo into the centre of the continent, to the river's confluence with the Aruwimi River. From there Stanley journeyed to the village of Yambuya, which he reached on 15 June 1887, and, leaving a rearguard party at Yambuya, Stanley and an advance party of some 400 embarked upon a 450-mile, five-month-long journey through the Ituri rain forest to Lake Albert. 'Stanley's descriptions of the tortuous passage through the dense forest rank among the most celebrated of all his writings. Ravaged by the effects of disease, hunger, and warfare, his party reached Lake Albert in December 1887. Failing to find Emin (who was at Wadelai), they retreated to Ibwiri, where a camp (known as Fort Bodo) was constructed. On 29 April 1888 Stanley himself finally met Emin Pasha, drinking champagne with him on the shores of Lake Albert, as he had with Livingstone at Ujiji in 1871. Unable to persuade Emin to leave immediately, he decided to return to find his rear column, leaving Jephson with Emin. In August 1888, at Banalya, just 90 miles from Yambuya, he found the rear column in a state of disarray [...] The rear column began the arduous journey on to Fort Bodo in August 1888, suffering further casualties on the way. On his arrival, in December 1888, Stanley learned that Emin had suffered the combined threat of a mutiny within his forces and renewed hostilities with the Mahdists. Emin's position appeared to be under threat, though he himself privately described Stanley's motives as "egoism under the guise of philanthropy" [...] After much cajoling, Stanley at last persuaded him to leave Equatoria, the party setting out from the shores of Lake Albert on 10 April 1889. They travelled near the Ruwenzori range [...] then through the lakes region, reaching the coast on 4 December 1889. By now, Stanley's relationship with Emin was at a low ebb, and he left Bagamoyo for Zanzibar without his prize. From there Stanley travelled to Cairo, where he spent two months writing his famous account of the expedition, In Darkest Africa' (ODNB). On his return to London in April 1890, Stanley was feted by society and academia, and a reception held for him by the Royal Geographical Society at the Albert Hall on 5 May 1890, was attended by 10,000 people, including the prince of Wales.

        Original Sketchbook of Jewellery Design.

      [c.1890?] 279 largely hand-coloured designs on tissue paper or card, tipped in to a square-ruled note book. Orig. black cloth. Stationery label of L.& D. Grebel, Paris.A wonderful collection of jewellery designs, probably French. The highly detailed designs, largely in colour, are of ornamental combs, bachelor buttons and possibly brooches. The sketches for the decorative heads of combs are elegantly uncomplicated often with a floral design or with the addition of a dove or dragon. The other, largely circular designs, are distinctive in style with the continual inclusion of animals, cherubs, floral patterns, and musical instruments. The more unusual sketches have an air of the fairytale about them; cherubs riding dragonflies, doves, snails and cats; violin-playing crickets and cello-playing mice.

        J. C. H. Eckert & Sohn Nachf. Illustrationen zum Engros-Preiscourant über Muschel, Muschelwaren, Gorgonien und Seetiere etc. [Illustrated catalogue and two price lists, of which one illustrated]

      Hamburg, J. C. H. Eckert & Sohn Nachf. Muschel- und Perlmutterwaren-Fabrik Naturalienhandlung, ca. 1890. Folio (34.0 x 27.4 cm). [i] p.; 19 lithographed plates, of which six printed in full colour. Original pictorial wrappers, with additional printed address label, mounted [AND] 4 pp.; nine photographic plates, Printed wrappers [AND] 8 pp. Printed wrappers.= An unusually finely illustrated catalogue of a shell dealer in Hamburg. The author, Heinrich Platow, apparently took over the business of J. C. H. Eckert and Sohn. Separately from the illustrated stock list, he produced two printed price lists, with pictorial front covers. The first contains an additional nine photographic plates with various shell Schmuck including boxes, ashtrays, and souvenirs, as well as carved, painted and unaltered shells, and bags with assorted shells, listing 500 items in all. A second, similar price list, contains 317 items. This list seems to be a bit younger, but both are not dated. They do, however, contain a telephone number, while the main catalogue does not. This dates them around 1885-1890. Little is known about Heinrich Platow, except that in the 1870s he was known as a dealer of naturalia, with a ‘travelling museum', touring places like Braunschweig, Bochum, Breslau and Solingen. Apparently he later settled in Hamburg. Small label of a former owner in the lower outer corner of the front wrapper verso. Wrapper edges a bit frayed and with a few small chips; one price list with punch holes, otherwise a very good set. Very rare. Not in any bibliography.

        Manuscrit autographe complet signé de Paul Verlaine d'une des "Chroniques de l'hôpital" : le lieu de misère partagée du poète et de l'ouvrier

      1890 - - Paris [1890], 21,3x14cm, 3 pages in-8 au versos de 4 feuillets de l'Assistance publique de Paris. - Manuscrit autographe complet signé de Paul Verlaine d'une des Chroniques de l'hôpital, 90 lignes serrées à l'encre noire, au verso de feuillets de l'Assistance publique de Paris. Chronique de l'une des hospitalisations de Paul Verlaine, se produisant entre septembre 1889 et février 1890. La mention « III » a été rayée au crayon bleu de typographe. Dans leur recueil définitif, le texte se trouve en effet en seconde position. Dans la version publiée par Le Chat noir, le 5 juillet 1890, on ne constate pas de variante avec notre manuscrit. Il s'agit donc du dernier état du texte remis à l'imprimeur. Jacques Borel situe la rédaction de cette chronique lors d'un passage à l'hôpital Cochin en juin 1890. Verlaine a passé de longs jours hospitalisés au cours de sa vie et plus particulièrement à cette époque. Durant ces séjours, il compose les Chroniques de l'Hôpital, des poèmes en prose en huit parties. Il y mêle l'anecdote, les observations de la vie des malades ainsi qu'une fine analyse poétique du milieu hospitalier. Verlaine débute par un constat troublant et désabusé : « Décidément, tout de même, il noircit l'Hôpital, en dépit du beau mois de juin [.] Oui, l'Hôpital se fait noir malgré philosophie, insouciance et fierté. » Malgré le beau temps, la rigidité du système, la misère et la maladie assombrissent la vision du poète : « réprimons toutes objections sous peine d'expulsions toujours dures, même en ce mois des fleurs et du foin, des jours réchauffants et des nuits clémentes, pour peu que l'on loge le diable dans sa bourse et la dette et la faim à la maison. » La sortie, par expulsion ou pour guérison et la vie à l'extérieur n'offrent pas plus de réconfort que le séjour : « Évidemment nous sortirons tôt ou tard, plus ou moins guéris, plus ou moins joyeux, plus ou moins sûrs de l'avenir, à moins que plus ou moins vivants. Alors nous penserons avec mélancolie [.] à nos souffrances morales et autres, aux médecins inhumains ou bons ». Un sentiment déjà éprouvé lors de ce qu'il appelle « mes ?entractes?», temps où il n'est pas hospitalisé. Car à la sortie de l'hôpital, c'est une vie de misère qui l'attend, malgré sa reconnaissance déjà acquise. Sa misère, Verlaine la met en parallèle de celle de la classe ouvrière qui partage ses séjours dans des hôpitaux. Le poète appelle à la résignation ses : « frères, artisans de l'une et de l'autre sorte, ouvriers sans ouvrage et poètes. avec éditeurs, résignons-nous, buvons notre peu sucrée tisane ou ce coco, avalons bravement qui son médicament, qui son lavement, qui sa chique! Suivons bien les prescriptions, obéissons aux injonctions, que douces nous semblent les injections et suaves les déjections, et réprimons toutes objections [.] ». Avec eux, le poète souhaite profiter de la beauté du mois de juin en reprenant deux vers de la Chanson sentimentale de Xavier Privas : « ?Nous nous plairions au grand soleil. Et sous les rameaux verts des chênes?, nous, les poètes, aussi bien qu'eux, les ouvriers, nos compagnons de misère [.]». Égaux devant le malheur, qu'ils soient actifs ou oisifs, pourraient-ils ressentir de la nostalgie une fois dehors: « Et peut-être un jour regretterons-nous ce bon temps où vous travailleurs, vous vous reposiez, où nous, les poètes, nous travaillions, où toi l'artiste, tu gagnais ton banyuls et tes tods [.] » ? Malgré cette rêverie, Verlaine est : « las de tant de pauvreté (provisoirement, croyez-le, car si habitué, moi, depuis cinq ans !) » et il conclut, amer par le constat d'une médecine moderne sans humanité : « l'Hôpital avec un grand H, l'idée atroce, évocatrice d'une indicible infortune, de l'Hôpital moderne pour le poète moderne, qui ne peut, à ses heures de découragement, que le trouver noir comme la mort et comme la tombe et comme la croix tombale et comme l'absence de charité, votre Hôpital moderne tout civilisé que vous l'ayez fait, hommes de ce siècle d'arg [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Cabinet Card of a Woman Boxer

      Buffalo: Ginther. [circa 1890]. Collodion print. Images measures 4" x 5.5" and is mounted on a 4.25" x 6.5" card with photographer name and address printed below the image. Fine. Penciled name of "Marjorie Gillmore" on verso in contemporary hand. The image shows a well-dressed and coifed woman sitting in a chair with a punching bag and boxing gloves at her feet. Women's boxing was practiced in England beginning in the early 18th Century, he first advertised American women's boxing match was held in New York in 1876. Women's boxing enjoyed a brief vogue near the turn of the century as some woman's rights supporters encouraged it as exercise. Women's boxing was a display sport at the Olympic Games in St. Louis in 1904 (which was combined with the World's Fair), but it failed to be added to the permanent roster of approved sports. After that it mostly faded from view until its relatively recent revival. It is uncommon to find early images of women with boxing paraphernalia. Undated but presumably someone with better knowledge of women's fashion might be able to make a more informed guess. .

        The Poetical works of Thomas Moore Reprinted from the early editions, with explanatory notes, &c

      London:: Frederick Warne, [ca. 1890-1900?]., 1890. Small 8vo. xii, 675 pp. Frontispiece portrait, illustrations. Original full black blind-stamped morocco, spine bands and decorative gilt-spine, all edges gilt, with "FOREDGE PAINTING" stamped on the spine foot. Near fine. "Naughty but nice," erotic fore-edge painting. The painting is set within an oval, surrounded by a dull-mustard yellow wash and black-lined outline framing of the scene. The view depicts a male and woman copulating (apparently in a waiting room or a living room), with a person's head poking in through the door and showing their 'shock' of the event depicted. The presence of the "FOREDGE PAINTING" stamping on the foot of the spine is usually indicative of a painting that is contemporary with the binding. This binding is clearly the original for the volume, but the painting is suggestive of ca. 1990s, thus it seems probable that the gilt-stamped titling for the painting was added later.

        Photo Album]: Colorado Farm Life with Hunting

      1890 - Quarto. Measuring 10" x 12". Red cloth over paper boards with gilt stamped decorations. Contains 32 sepia toned silver gelatin photographs with some duplicates and three cyanotype prints measuring around 4" x 7" without captions. Good only with front board detached, lacking the spine, and chips with very good photographs, some fading.A collection of photographs featuring farm life and hunting in the American West around 1890. While unidentified, the location appears to be where the Great Plains meet the mountains, perhaps in Colorado. The photos depict the owners of the land posing near their cabin and a larger farm house in a variety of seasons: one photo shows a group of men enjoying some recreation under a tree after a summer picnic (with one holding a tennis racket) and the three cyanotype prints showing the men outside the house after a snowstorm.Hunting is the predominant subject depicted throughout the album with men posing with dogs, guns, and with kills. Photos including a man posed holding a gun with pelts attached to his belt and his dog sitting in front of him. Another shows a man on horseback holding the head of a deer, while several others showcase a hunting encampment. Also featured are the animals from the area including beautiful photos of a mountain lion by a river, a group of deer laying in a field, and cattle fenced in with a mountain range visible in the distance. While men are predominately featured throughout the album there is an image of a lone woman on horseback, which suggests her absence from other photos may be due to her being photographer of the group. A terrific collection of photographs depicting late 1800s farm life on the Plains with an emphasis on hunting. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Illustrated with portrait frontispieces, 43 full page illustrations, a profusion of illustrations in the text, 3 large color folding maps in pockets, 1 folding map bound within the text block, 1 diagram. 8vo, publisher's original green cloth lettered in gilt on the spines which also feature gilt busts of Stanley, with gilt and black decoration on the upper covers and Stanley's signature in gilt. xiv, 547; xvi, 540 including index. An especially fine and bright set in excellent and unusually nice condition. Rare thus. AN EXCELLENT SET. VERY SCARCE IN THIS CONDITION, AND ONE OF THE PRINCIPLE WRITINGS BY ONE OF THE GREATEST EXPLORERS OF THE DARK CONTINENT. The work is the original report to the Emin Pasha Relief Committee and the funding group for the expedition, one of the most important of all African exploratory adventures. "By 1885 Stanley had become deeply interested in the schemes of Mr. (afterwards Sir) William Mackinnon, chairman of the British India Steam Navigation Company, for establishing a British protectorate in East Equatorial Africa, and it was believed that this object could be furthered at the same time that relief was afforded to Emin Pasha, governor of the Equatorial Province of Egypt, who had been isolated by the Mahdist rising of 1881-1885.Instead of choosing the direct route Stanley decided to go by way of the Congo, as thereby he would be able to render services to the infant Congo State, then encountering great difficulties with the Zanzibar Arabs established on the Upper Congo" (EB). Stanley and Tippoo Tib, the chief of the Congo Arabs, entered into an agreement for the latter to assume governorship of the Stanley Falls station and supply carriers for the Emin relief expedition, and then travelled up the Congo to Bangala together. They parted ways at Stanley Falls and Stanley started his trip toward Albert Nyanza, leaving a rear-guard at Yambuya on the lower Aruwimi under the command of Major E.M. Barttelot. Stanley’s journey to Albert Nyanza became a hazardous 160-day march through "nothing but miles and miles, endless miles of forest" that claimed the lives of over half of Stanley’s men from starvation, disease, and hostility of the natives. Finally upon the arrival at Albert Nyanza, Stanley achieved communication with Emin but was troubled by the non-arrival of his rear-guard. He retraced his steps back to Yambuya to find that Tippoo Tib had broken faith, Barttelot had been murdered, and the camp was in disarray and only one European was left. Stanley again set out for Albert Nyanza, where Stanley, Emin Pasha, and the survivors of the rear-guard began the return journey to Zanzibar by way of Uganda, a trip during which he discovered the Mountains of the Moon (Ruwenzori), traced the course of the Semliki River, discovered Albert Edward Nyanza and the great southwestern gulf of Victorian Nyanza. Of Stanley’s original 646 men, only 246 survived. This account of his adventures was wildly popular and published in six languages. One of the greatest feats in African travel, Stanley traveled thousands of miles in his claims to the great stretches of continental African territory. This particular edition is extremely scarce in such excellent condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
