        IN DARKEST AFRICA, or the Quest, Rescue, and Retreat of Emin, Governor of Equatoria

      London and New York: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington for Charles Scribner's Sons, 1890. 2 volumes. Edition de Luxe. One of a limited edition of 250 numbered copies signed by Stanley on the reverse of the half-title. With 6 etchings and 150 woodcut illustrations and 3 folding maps. Each of the etchings are signed in pencil by the artist. Large 4to, contemporary three-quarter brown morocco and with vellum covered sides, gilt lettered on the spines, gilt lettered and with gilt flag vignette on the upper covers, t.e.g. and all edges untrimmed. xv, 529; xi, 472 pp. Index in each volume. A lovely example of this rare set, the bindings unusually fresh with the morocco and vellum in an especially good state of preservation, extremely fresh and clean internally. Only a light bit of aging to the vellum, quite unusual in this condition. VERY SCARCE LIMITED EDITION OF ONE OF THE PRINCIPLE WRITINGS OF ONE OF THE GREATEST EXPLORERS OF THE DARK CONTINENT. "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 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. This particular edition is extremely scarce in such excellent condition.

        A Musical Box Photograph Album

      n.d. - Late 19th or early 20th century Olympia photgraphic album with music box. Publisher's quarto embossed brown cushioned leather boards clasped with a brass clasp at fore-edge, the opening of which is intended to trigger the music box, later respine, minor edgewear and a little scuffing here and there, essentially very good indeed, strong and bright. Gilt and green patterned endpapers. Internally clean and bright. With ten heavy card die cut chromolithographed album pages accepting between 1 and 4 photographs (no photos are present), each page is heavily decorated with a full colour depiction of a different sporting endeavour or other. Cricket, archery, baseball, curling, lacrosse and lawn tennis are all present, with the occasional foray into fox hunting and snowshoe racing. Bright and colourful, with some interesting insights into accepted uniforms for turn of the century sporting events. The music box is fully operational and charmingly melodic with the minor details that a single link in the gear release linkage has been replaced by a small piece of wire and that the linking trigger bar is no longer attached to the clasp which means you have to give it a slight tug to play the jaunty tune.which will be instantly recogniseable to anyone who didn't grow up on Joy Division and The Sisters of Mercy but is a bit of a mystery to me. The mechanism is protected by a hinged glass door and the winding key is present and secured to the side of the movement (which I think is a clockwork 1 tune 55 note model). The keyhole is in the centre of the rear board. That rather jumbled foray into mechanical engineering was intended to suggest that everything is present and correct and the music box component plays very nicely. Altogether a charming object, Olympia apparently produced several variations on this album, with and without the music box from the 1890's onwards.they were produced in Germany, a detail that has been carefully scratched out on the title page presumably from someone who had some reason to be resentful towards Germany in the early to mid 20th century, which admittedly doesn't narrow it down at all. A fascinating item, and the kind of thing we don't normally trip over. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Hustak och kyrktorn i Genua.

      Akvarell. Signerad och daterad: "W. v. Gegerfelt / Genua 1890". 31,5 × 18 cm. Vacker akvarell med välbevarade färger. Proveniens: Beijers klassiska vårauktion, 25-27 april 1990 (katalog 40), nr 374 (utrop 20,000 kr.) Landskapsmålaren Wilhelm von Gegerfelt var mycket berest och gjorde studieresor till Tyskland, Frankrike, Holland och Italien. Han uppehöll sig flera år i Düsseldorf (1867-72) och hade därefter sin bas i Paris fram till 1885. Gegerfelt representerar jämte Alfred Wahlberg övergångsskedet mellan Karl XV-tidens akademiska och romantiska landskapsmåleri och den frambrytande friluftsrealismen hos opponentrörelsen på 1880-talet. Han hörde själv till friluftsmålarnas skara och arbetade sedan han återvänt till Sverige i en liten hästdragen ateljé på medar om vintrarna för att komma naturen riktigt in på livet. Han skickade även ritningarna till sin elev Prins Eugen, så att han kunde beställa en liknande åt sig själv. Gegerfelts italienska motiv hör till hans färgmässigt friskaste och är ofta från Venedig, som han besökte första gången 1880 med Carl Skånberg och Georg Pauli.

        Recueil de thèses de Stomatologie portant sur les anomalies dentaires, particulièrement chez les enfants dégénérés, anormaux et autres

      1890 - Grand in-° relié demi-chagrin. A. Broca : Le bec-de-lièvre complexe de la lèvre supérieure : étude sur l'ostéologie de la face (Steinheil, 1887), 87 pp. Nbses fig. in-texte. - A. Paillasson : Sur les principaux anesthésiques employés dans la chirurgie dentaire : chloroforme, éther, protoxyde d'azote (J.-B. Baillière, 1886), 144 pp. - Ernest Théodore Hamy : L'os intermaxillaire de l'homme à l'état normal et pathologique (Lefrançois, 1868), 89 [1] pp. Très rare thèse de l'un des fondateurs de l'anthropologie française. Fils d'un pharmacien de Boulogne-sur-Mer, après ses deux baccalauréats il poursuit ses études à la Faculté de médecine de Paris. En 1864, externe à la Salpêtrière dans le service du docteur Charcot, il rencontre Paul Broca qui a créé en 1859 la Société d'anthropologie de Paris. Plus intéressé par l'anthropologie physique que par la médecine proprement dite, il le suit à Saint-Antoine et obtient d'assister aux séances de la Société. En 1867, il devient membre à part entière de la Société d'anthropologie qui le charge de recueillir pour son musée les crânes mis au jour lors de travaux dans les cimetières du nouvel Hôtel Dieu. Cette même année, dans le cadre de la préparation de l'Exposition Universelle, il est chargé de l'étude de momies et de crânes égyptiens rassemblés par Mariette. Après sa thèse, P. Broca le prend comme assistant au laboratoire d'études anthropologiques de l'École pratique des hautes études. En 1869, en raison du succès de l'exposition égyptienne, il est invité en Égypte pour l'inauguration du canal de Suez. Il y recueille des artéfact préhistoriques. Il participe à des fouilles préhistoriques dans l'Eure et l'Eure-et-Loir en 1870. Il remplace en 1872 l'assistant malade d'Armand de Quatrefages, titulaire de la chaire d'anthropologie du Muséum national d'histoire naturelle, et reprend définitivement son poste en 1873, devenant aide-naturaliste. Quatrefages et Hamy précisent les mensurations et indices de base des inventaires ostéologiques et rédigent Crania ethnica (1875-1882), travail basé sur des données anthropologiques françaises et étrangères, similaire au Crania de Thurnam et Davis et au Crania Americana and Crania Aegyptiaca de S. G. Morton. Ils contribuent à la formation de l'anthropologie préhistorique et identifient la « race de Cro-Magnon » en 1878. Ernest Hamy est l'un des premiers en France à reconnaître l'homme de Néandertal. Comme Quatrefages, il est partisan des thèses monogénistes. En 1892, à la mort de Quatrefages, il devient titulaire de la chaire d'anthropologie du Muséum. - Giraldès : Des maladies du sinus maxillaire (Paris, Imprimerie Martinet, 1851), 54 pages.

        Importante correspondance de l'évêque de Chartres à Noël Parfait.

      - 10 lettres autographes signées 13 In-8 1890-1893 bon Belle correspondance du nouvel évêque de Chartres à Noël Parfait, accompagnée du manuscrit d'un discours sur le monastère de la Visitation. "Le gouvernement m'a nommé évêque de Chartres [.]. J'ai choisi pour le lieu du sacre Chartres même, cette cérémonie aura lieu le 29 mars prochain ; puis-je espérer que vous voudrez bien me faire l'honneur d'y assister. J'en serais heureux et reconnaissant [.]". L'évêque se fait poète et compose, pour Noël Parfait, un sonnet intitulé Un ami, son sourire : "La nuit, nuit noire, enveloppe le monde / Les monts, les flots, les ailes, tout dort silencieux [.]. Il ne s'agit pas de politique. Et quand même il s'agirait de politique? Un journal de Chartres prétend en ce moment (d'avance et avant que j'eusse parlé ils le disent) qu'en cherchant des moyens, d'ailleurs légers, de faire élever chrétiennement les enfants, j'attaquais "l'Etat"! [.]. Sous tous les régimes, je soutiendrai ce que j'ai soutenu : la part nécessaire de Dieu dans l'éducation [.]". Sur un papier à en-tête de la Résidence Générale de France à Tunis, Mgr Lagrange compose un autre poème pour Noël Parfait Il est joint une lettre de Mgr Lagrange lorsqu'il était vicaire général d'Orléans sur la publication des discours de Mgr Dupanloup (1868) et un manuscrit autographe d'un discours, (1 p. in-4), sur le monastère de la Visitation. "Nous venons de faire une grande chose [.]. Nous venons de poser la première pierre d'un édifice destiné, s'il plait à Dieu, à durer longtemps. Et cet édifice est un édifice religieux [.]. Et cet édifice est un monastère, et c'est quelque chose de grand et de secret qu'un monastère [.]. Et ce monastère, enfin, est un monastère de la Visitation [.]". Evêque de Chartres (1889-1895).

        Artistic Pussy and Her Studio

      Chicago: Thompson & Thomas, 1890. A Very Scarce Meggendorfer Movable [MOVABLE BOOK]. MEGGENDORFER, Lothar. Artistic Pussy and Her Studio. Moving Pictures with Other Tales. A Moveable Toybook from Lothar Meggendorfer. Chicago: Thompson & Thomas, [1890]. Folio (12 1/8 x 8 7/8 inches; 308 x 226 mm.). Sixteen unnumbered pages. Six with color lithographed moveable plates and eight with black & white drawings. The movable plates are bright and clean and all in perfect working order. The cat's paintbrush handle has been expertly and almost invisibly repaired. Neat early ink presentation on front paste-down. A spectacular example of this very rare Meggendorfer movable. Publisher's quarter red cloth over glazed boards, front cover with color pictorial design and title. Near fine. A remarkable survival of a very scarce Meggendorfer title. There are eight movables with a story text each of which includes sepia drawings. The six movables are: 1. A bulldog, seated in an armchair, having his portrait painted by Mrs. Puss 2. A 'clever' monkey sitting in a big armchair and trying to play with a crying baby in her lap 3. A cat with palette in arm painting a portrait of a poodle 4. A wily fox running away with two geese under his arms 5. A mother hen gently rocks two of her baby chicks in a cradle while the four other chicks peck around. 6. Mr. and Mrs. Hare hiding in a cabbage patch from a hound OCLC locates just one copy of the London imprint in libraries and institutions worldwide: Library of Congress (DC). and three copies of the American imprint by Thompson & Thomas, Chicago: Smithsonian Institution, (DC); Boston University (MA); Pennsylvania University (PA). "There is little doubt that the most elaborate and ingenious movables ever produced were those of the German Lothar Meggendorfer (1847-1925) made during the 1880s and 1890s...the mechanisms and operations of Meggendorfer's books-not to mention the originality of his figures-are far superior to any others published before or since....'They were marvels of ingenuity...Usually several movements took place at the same time on the same page' (Eric Quayle)...The devices that operated the various figures in Meggendorfer's books consisted of a series of inter-connecting cardboard levers sandwiched between the coloured illustration on the front of the oblong leaf and the dummy pasted behind it. The animated limbs and heads were cut-out models on the front of the picture, and moving the tab set the whole scene in motion...Needless to say, such was the delicacy of Meggendorfer's machinery that if a child pulled too hard the whole thing could be ruined beyond repair" (Haining, Movable Books, pp. 65-73).
