        La question du charbon de terre

      Paris, Librairie F. Savy, 1890, in-8, , broché, couverture imprimée de l'éditeur, dos factice, titre manuscrit en long, Envoi de l'auteur à M. Linder. Albert de Lapparent (1839-1908), élève de l'École Polytechnique et des Mines, était professeur de géologie et minéralogie à l'Institut catholique de Paris au moment de sa fondation (1875). Il fut également directeur de recherches au CNRS, créateur de la mission géologique française en Afghanistan et conservateur-adjoint des collections départementales de l'École des Mines (1868). Il travailla pendant plusieurs années à la Carte géologique détaillée de la France. Il fut l'un des principaux rédacteurs de la Revue de géologie (1866-1880), publia d'intéressants articles dans le Correspondant, les Annales des mines, et fit de savantes communications à la Société de géologie, dont il fut nommé président en 1880, ainsi qu'à l'Académie des sciences de Paris. Il obtint de cette dernière le prix Laplace en 1861 et le prix Delesse en 1885. Il est l'auteur d'un important Traité de géologie (Paris, 1882) qui est sans doute le tableau le plus complet de l'ensemble des connaissances acquises à la fin du XIXe siècle sur les phénomènes géologiques, et d'un Cours de minéralogie (Paris, 1884) lui aussi largement diffusé. Tampon annulé de l'institut catholique de Paris et étiquette en pied du dos.

        Autograph Letter Signed to Dr. Ward

      Evanston, Ill, 1890. Autograph Letter Signed, "Frances Willard" to Dr. Ward on letterhead of National Woman's Christian Temperance Union, President Frances E. Willard. Single sheet, 8-7/16" x 5-3/8", folded in thirds to fit envelope, else fine. Frances Willard (1839-1898), feminist and reformer, distinguished herself as an educator in the early part of her life. By the 1870's, however, she had found her life's work: temperance. Bringing a small prayer-dominated group to the national stage and prodding the WCTU into other causes -- like suffrage and labor reform -- she shaped the group into a strong woman's movement. By 1890, Miss Willard had experience of 10 years in American party politics and was influential in making the Prohibitionists a successful political force. In her autobiography, GLIMPSES OF FIFTY YEARS, she mentions writing for The Independent as early as 1870. The Independent was a New York-based weekly journal of considerable importance in 19th-century America, absorbing Harper's Weekly in 1916. It started in 1848 as a religious journal associated with the Congregationalists. Henry Ward Beecher, editor from 1860-1863 was succeeded by Theodore Tilton (1863-1870) who made it a secular periodical interested in reform -- especially suffrage. Later editors moved the journal in the direction of an interdenominational religious and literary organ, active in political discussion. In this letter, she writes "Dr. Ward" that this "note was not reached - in the heap on my table - until hereaway. I always liked to write for The Independent but felt unwelcome latterly. Reassured by your kind words, will 'try try again' - soon. Dr. Ward may well be Cyrenus Osborne Ward (18311902), author, editor, and labor leader who was strongly connected to the New York Tribune and New York Sun. By 1878 he had set up his own printing office to publish one of his own books as well as assuming the associate editorship of the reform journal, Man. He spent the rest of his life devoted to a political and social agenda of progress and reform -- as did Willard. An interesting letter -- one doesn't often have written documentation of the "Do Everything" Miss Willard letting feelings of unwelcomeness deter her from anything! NAW III, pp. 613-619. Willard, GLIMPSES OF FIFTY YEARS (1889). DAB X, pp. 416-417.

        Lebende Bilder

      Munich: Verlag Braun & Schneider, 1890. Hardcover. Orig. publisher's pictorial boards colored in a multitude of colors, black cloth spine. Very good. Unpaginaged. 32 x 24 cm. Cover title, a pop-up book with eight full-page chromolithographed plates, each with a movable tab to set the scene in motion. The poems describing each plate are captioned: Herr Stabel, Die Jungser Kochin, Der Klavierspieler, Der Schreiber, Der Herr Magister, Der Tyroler Sanger, Fritzchen und der Kakadu, & Das naschafte Katzlein. "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 Meggedorfer's books - not to mention the originality of the figures -- are far superior to any others published before or since. The devices that operated the various figures in his 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 [see: HAINING, Movable Books, pp.65-73]. Overall a clean copy with all tabs functional, very slight rubbing to extremities, bookseller label, paste-down front endpaper of Brunnquell & Rohde, Milwaukee, WI.

        Her Garden. A Poem by Susan Coolidge Illustrated with Hand-Painted Flower Designs from Originals by Alice Stewart Hill

      Nims & Knight, Troy NY 1890 - Title printed in sepia and red, the text in sepia throughout. The text of the poem on six sheets, each with elaborately hand colored floral borders over thin etched line. Publisher's wrappers, upper cover with embossed lettering and hand painted floral design, ribbon stitching renewed. A very rare illustrated work by two remarkable Colorado women. The seven stanza poem by Coolidge, the pen name of Sarah Chauncey Woolsley, was written in memory of Helen Hunt Jackson and describes the wild flowers on Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado. The text is embellished with floral borders by the illustrator Alice Stewart Hill, best known for her The Procession of Flowers in Colorado. Hill's drawings were etched by Thomas Parrish and Hill, printed in New York and published and bound in Colorado Springs in 1888. This Troy New York second edition is evidently printed from the same plates. Both editions are extremely scarce, with only two examples extant. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        In Darkest Africa

      Charles Scribner's, NY 1890 - or the Quest, Rescue and Retreat of Emin, Governor of Equatoria. 1890 NY Two volumes: 429 and 472 pp. Edition de luxe limited to 250 numbered copies signed by Stanley. 6 etchings, 150 woodcut ill, 3 folding maps. Stanley was interested in establishing a British Protectorate in East Africa and at the same time trying to rescue the Governor of the Equatorial Province in Egypt.

Eventually reaching his goal, during the equally perilous return trip Stanley discovered the Mountains of the Moon (Ruwenzori) and a new lake that he named Lake Albert. Only slightly over 1/3 of the original group returned alive. This is considered one of the greatest accounts of travel writing, especially of African exploration. Printed on thick deckle edged paper and bound in half gilt black leather over thick gilt vellum boards. The set is in usually nice condition, the leather showing very little wear, the raised spine bands show no wear and the corners only the tiniest bit of wear. The vellum boards are lightly soiled but much cleaner than usual. The text block is fine. Overall a solid VG+ to near fine set. See pictures on our website. DeLuxe Ltd to 500 numbered/signed copies.

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

      London: Frederick Warne, [ca. 1890-1900?]. London:: Frederick Warne, [ca. 1890-1900?].. 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.

Fernand Lagrange (1845-1909) étudia les exercices physiques en fonction de la physiologie organique, et non de la mécanique, ce qui était novateur pour l'époque. Intérieur portant des rousseurs

      Unpag. volume containing 36 leaves of collotype plates depicting views of the Falls, many in winter, including Prospect Point, Horseshoe Fall, Cave of the Winds, the American and Canadian Falls, whirlpools, Dufferin Islands, bridges, and the Falls under snow and ice. Ink stamp and pencil notation to front endpaper. 4to. Cloth, bumped corners, professionally repaired with cloth tape along spine and to endpapers. N.p. (Niagara Falls?) n.d. (circa 1890's). Together with two photographs on cardstock from H. F. Nielson, "Manufacturers of all kinds of paper & glass views of Niagara Falls" Tourism to Niagara Falls became popular in the 19th century, and by the middle of the century was the main industry in the area. The first suspension bridge over the Niagara River was built by Charles Ellet in 1848, and supplanted by another suspension bridge in 1855. After the Civil War, the New York Central Railroad advertised Niagara Falls as a vacation and honeymoon destination, and as a result, the first railway bridge was constructed in 1886. The first steel archway bridge, the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge, was completed in 1897. It still carries cars, trains, and pedestrians through Canadian Customs Border Control today. As of June 2017, WorldCat locates two holdings in North American institutions.

        Hedda Gabler. [Skuespil i fire akter]

      København [Copenhagen]: Glydendalske Boghandels Forlag (F. Hegel & Son), 1890. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine. First Printing of perhaps Ibsen's "most frequently performed play in the modern theatre." (PMM) In Danish (then the literary language of both Denmark and Norway). Small 8vo: [4],236pp. Publisher's green cloth (copies were also identically bound in red, brown, and grey, no known priority), front cover elaborately blocked in gilt and black, back board with blind-stamped borders and central publisher's logo, floral patterned endpapers, gilt edges. A brilliant copy, barely rubbed to spine ends. PMM 375. First trade edition, preceded by twelve copies printed in London, in Norwegian, "under a well-intentioned illusion that this was necessary for copyright protection." (PMM) Published on December 16, 1890, although the play only premiered on January 31, 1891, at the Königliches Residenz-Theater, in Munich. Together with The Lady from the Sea and Rosmersholm, Hedda Gabler forms the Munich trilogy (Ibsen lived in Munich when he wrote them.) The heroines, Ellida, Rebecca, and Hedda, are all determined women, but only Ellida is able to achieve freedom from the consequences of her past actions. Hedda, who, as the play opens, has just married the dull academic Tesman to avoid a spinster's life, realizes that she has trapped herself in a life of impossible tedium, with suicide as her only way out. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.
