        ROOTS OF THE MOUNTAINS

      London: Printed by C. Whittingham at the Chiswick Press, 1890. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 250 COPIES. This is a fantasy romance by one of the first modern authors to write in that genre. At least as important here is the binding, which represents a product of the Morris line of fine merchandise, which included textiles, furniture, and (after 1891) finely printed books at the Kelmscott Press. The spines of this binding are notoriously prone to fading (you can see a hint of that here), and the book as a whole typically appears dilapidated, so the present very nearly fine copy is particularly desirable.. 206 x 168 mm. (8 1/8 x 6 1/2"). 4 p.l., 424 pp. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 250 COPIES. Bound (as usual) in Morris-designed floral patterned linen. Spine very lightly sunned, isolated faint thumbing or other trivial imperfections, otherwise AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY, the linen clean and retaining its colors, the leaves quite bright and fresh with wide, untrimmed margins. This is a fantasy romance by one of the first modern authors to write in that genre. At least as important here is the binding, which represents a product of the Morris line of fine merchandise, which included textiles, furniture, and (after 1891) finely printed books at the Kelmscott Press.

        RYDBERG FORMULA: "On the Structure of the Line-Spectra of the Chemical Elements" (The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science [Fifth Series], Vol. XXIX, pp. 331-337)

      Taylor and Francis, London 1890 - Swedish physicist Johannes Rydberg (1854-1919) developed the first mathematical formula for the spectral lines of hydrogen atom (and other atoms or ions with only one electron). Rydberg's insight came from using "wavenumber" (the inverse of the wavelength) in his calculations. He plotted the wavenumbers of the spectral lines against integers in different series and found that the resulting curves had similar shapes. Using this insight, he developed a function (called the "Rydberg formula") to model these curves. This is the first publication in English of the Rydberg formula. vii, [1], 524 pp. 8vo. 10 plates, 8 folding. Rebound in an exquisite three quarter leather binding with brown leather spine with four raised bands, gold embossed titling on black leather patch titles, marbled paper insets to cover boards. Only indication of ex-library status is ink stamps on the title page. Very clean within. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Forty Years Among the Indians: A True Yet Thrilling Narrative of the Author's Experiences Among the Natives

      Juvenile Instructor Office, Salt Lake City, UT 1890 - 400pp. Octavo (22.5 cm) in full black calf with decorative gilt-stamping and ruling to backstrip and front board, decorative blindstamping to rear board, all edges gilt. Fading to spine, rubbing to extremities, front joint cracked at foot to a depth of 3", hinges sound. Interior is clean and only faintly toned. Jones recounts his travels throughout the southwestern Unites States including events from the Mexican War as well as his encounters with Native Americans and the Mormons. Flake/Draper 4484. Howes J202. This copy belonged to Moses Thatcher and is signed in his hand on the front flyleaf with "Logan, Utah" in subscript. Moses Thatcher (1842-1909) served on the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles from 1879 until 1909, when he was dropped from the Quorum because of his belief in the importance of political neutrality. Unlike other dropped Quorum members, Thatcher retained his apostolic office and continued on as a fully participating member of the Church until his death.Thatcher's parents Hezekiah and Alena converted to Mormonism in 1843, shortly after his birth. They moved to Nauvoo, and took part in the great migration to the Salt Lake Valley. Shortly thereafter, they tried their luck in the California gold rush, but soon returned to Utah and settled in Cache Valley. Thatcher attended the University of Deseret (now the University of Utah) and served two missions. In 1879, Thatcher was called to Quorum of the Twelve Apostles to replace the recently deceased Orson Hyde.The Church voted to drop Thatcher from the Quorum in 1896 when he refused to sign "The Political Rule of the Church", a policy popularly known as the Mormon Political Manifesto, which required that Church officials obtain permission from the First Presidency before seeking to hold public office.Thatcher also testified before the Senate on behalf of controversial state senator and apostle Reed Smoot, himself a member of the Quorum of the Twelve.In addition to Thatcher's signature on the flyleaf, his name and Logan address are written on the front free endpaper verso in a different hand.

        The Nursery 'Alice'

      London: Macmillan, 1890. Nursery version of the classic story conceived to be read and 'cooed over' by younger readers. The two additional 'puzzle-pictures' or sketches that complement this copy are rare and precious examples of a game Carroll used to play with children - the object being to guess the animal before Carroll had finished drawing it. Such extempore amusements suggest that the famous author of Alice in Wonderland did not merely write for children, he actually liked them as well. Presentation copy of the first published edition - inscribed by Lewis Carroll on the half title - with two original ink puzzle-pictures by Lewis Carroll tipped in. Quarto, bound in original pictorial boards, preserved in a deep blue, folding, cloth box, 257 mm x 200 mm., 75 pages, colour frontispiece and 3 full-page colour illustrations, numerous illustrations throughout; water damage affecting pages at front and end, endpapers browned and corners worn, otherwise a very good copy.

        Sujets Religieux

      Paris: Fonderie Typographique Deberny & Cie., Rue de Hauteville, 58, 1890. Folio broadsheets (441 x 275 mm). 98 leaves, including title (with vignette) and 97 specimen leaves, the latter numbered at bottom (Sujets Religieux 1 (-97), containing approximately 2780 vignettes and ornaments, all but 70 with a printed stock number (see below) and price. Some marginal foxing, marginal tears to last leaf. Stab-stitched in original printed wrappers (soiled and torn, backstrip perished), illustrated with two of the large cuts included in the sample book.*** A very rare specialized specimen book by a major Paris typefoundry, produced for distribution to printers and publishers. Containing priced impressions of thousands of illustrations and ornaments, it constitutes a veritable visual encyclopedia of late nineteenth-century religious book illustration in France. Resembling wood-engravings, etchings, or line drawings, these process prints would have been produced by electrotype or etching combined with photography. The plates themselves were probably zinc. The over 2700 illustrations, vignettes and ornaments, ranging from large cuts and suites of thematically related illustrations to small ornaments, ornamental letters, or crosses, reproduce motifs from 16th- and 17th-century books as well as contemporary Romantic imagery. Grouped largely by theme or subject, there are cuts evoking books of hours, several suites showing priests performing the ceremonies of Mass (as in Mazot's Tableau de la Croix), dozens of God the Fathers (including the large vignette used on the title-page and wrappers), Virgins, Passion suites, Bishops, Saints, doves, pierced hearts, crucifixions, crosses, Veronica's veils, angels, eyes of Providence, IHS monograms, religious trophies, pilgrimage sites, church interiors, and memorials, to name a few of the themes. Sheets 3 to 8 contain 108 blocks illustrating the Bible, from the Creation through the Assumption of the Virgin; these and a long series of Saints are the only images with identifiying captions. Otherwise each impression bears only its stock number and usually the cost (ranging from 3 to 25 fr., but those not priced are 2 francs, as stated on a few sheets). Some cuts of the Biblical series are signed Laurent & Deberny; elsewhere a few illustrations are signed Deberny, and some that were produced from earlier wood engravings or polytpages bear the engravers' or artist's signatures (Lafond, Besnard, Lacoste). The Deberny firm traces its origins to a colorful crew, including Jean-Louis Duplat and none other than Honoré de Balzac. Duplat (1757-1827?), one of the first book illustrators to experiment with polytypage, a GRAPHIC PRINTING METHOD WHICH BORROWED ELEMENTS OF BOTH LITHOGRAPHY AND STEREOTYPE PRINTING, had formed a partnership with François Laurent (1818-1823) and the typefounder Joseph Gaspard Gillé, to start a typefounding enterprise. After Duplat's death, most of his material passed to Laurent. The latter became a partner in 1827 in the printing company which had been founded in 1826 or 1827 by Balzac and the typesetter André Barbier. Balzac's press was rescued from bankruptcy by his mistress Louise-Antoinette-Laure de Berny (1777-1836); the latter's son Alexandre de Berny, who took over the printing shop, partnered with Laurent until 1840, when he bought out the latter's share. At this time he contracted his name to "Deberny"; and in 1877 joined forces with Charles Tuleu, his illegitimate son, who ran the firm under the name Deberny & Compagnie until 1914. From 1889 to 1914 the firm resided at 58 rue de Hauteville. In 1923 it merged with Peignot, becoming Déberny-Peignot. At the bottom left of each sheet is a copyright note "Déposé - 90 - Déberny et Cie.", "90" possibly referring to the date. All of the vignettes and illustrations have printed stock numbers, and the main series, printed in numerical order, is from 14001 to 16168; but scattered among these are many smaller vignettes and ornaments from different number series, in 4 digits. These are not in numerical order, but are inserted thematically, and are often artfully arranged. By my count there are 543 vignettes outside the main numbering sequence; and sheet 91 has 70 small crosses which are identified by type size (and are priced at 1 franc each or 3 francs per series), making for a grand total of 2780 individual items. OCLC locates copies at the Bibliothèque municipale de Lyon and the BnF. The latter has 8 additional unnumbered sheets. A. Jammes, Collection de Specimens de Caracteres 1517-2004 (Paris 2006), no. 135 (this copy).

The over 2700 illustrations, vignettes and ornaments, ranging from large cuts and suites of thematically related illustrations to small ornaments, ornamental letters, or crosses, reproduce motifs from 16th- and 17th-century books as well as contemporary Romantic imagery. Grouped largely by theme or subject, there are cuts evoking books of hours, several suites showing priests performing the ceremonies of Mass (as in Mazot's Tableau de la Croix), dozens of God the Fathers (including the large vignette used on the title-page and wrappers), Virgins, Passion suites, Bishops, Saints, doves, pierced hearts, crucifixions, crosses, Veronica's veils, angels, eyes of Providence, IHS monograms, religious trophies, pilgrimage sites, church interiors, and memorials, to name a few of the themes. Sheets 3 to 8 contain 108 blocks illustrating the Bible, from the Creation through the Assumption of the Virgin; these and a long series of Saints are the only images with identifiying captions. Otherwise each impression bears only its stock number and usually the cost (ranging from 3 to 25 fr., but those not priced are 2 francs, as stated on a few sheets). Some cuts of the Biblical series are signed Laurent & Deberny; elsewhere a few illustrations are signed Deberny, and some that were produced from earlier wood engravings or polytpages bear the engravers' or artist's signatures (Lafond, Besnard, Lacoste). The Deberny firm traces its origins to a colorful crew, including Jean-Louis Duplat and none other than Honoré de Balzac. Duplat (1757-1827?), one of the first book illustrators to experiment with polytypage, a GRAPHIC PRINTING METHOD WHICH BORROWED ELEMENTS OF BOTH LITHOGRAPHY AND STEREOTYPE PRINTING, had formed a partnership with François Laurent (1818-1823) and the typefounder Joseph Gaspard Gillé, to start a typefounding enterprise. After Duplat's death, most of his material passed to Laurent. The latter became a partner in 1827 in the printing company which had been founded in 1826 or 1827 by Balzac and the typesetter André Barbier. Balzac's press was rescued from bankruptcy by his mistress Louise-Antoinette-Laure de Berny (1777-1836); the latter's son Alexandre de Berny, who took over the printing shop, partnered with Laurent until 1840, when he bought out the latter's share. At this time he contracted his name to "Deberny"; and in 1877 joined forces with Charles Tuleu, his illegitimate son, who ran the firm under the name Deberny & Compagnie until 1914. From 1889 to 1914 the firm resided at 58 rue de Hauteville. In 1923 it merged with Peignot, becoming Déberny-Peignot. At the bottom left of each sheet is a copyright note "Déposé - 90 - Déberny et Cie.", "90" possibly referring to the date. All of the vignettes and illustrations have printed stock numbers, and the main series, printed in numerical order, is from 14001 to 16168; but scattered among these are many smaller vignettes and ornaments from different number series, in 4 digits. These are not in numerical order, but are inserted thematically, and are often artfully arranged. By my count there are 543 vignettes outside the main numbering sequence; and sheet 91 has 70 small crosses which are identified by type size (and are priced at 1 franc each or 3 francs per series), making for a grand total of 2780 individual items. OCLC locates copies at the Bibliothèque municipale de Lyon and the BnF. The latter has 8 additional unnumbered sheets. A. Jammes, Collection de Specimens de Caracteres 1517-2004 (Paris 2006), no. 135 (this copy).

        The Nursery Alice

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1890 [1896]. Tall octavo. Original white cloth-backed white pictorial boards designed by E. Gertrude Thomson, title to front cover red and black. Colour frontispiece with tissue-guard and 19 colour illustrations after John Tenniel. Contemporary school prize plate (The King's High School for Girls, Warwick) to front pastedown. Bookseller's stamp to head of front free endpaper. Slight wear to extremities, foxing to covers and endpapers; an excellent copy. Second edition (the first published in the UK), second issue, re-priced at one shilling on the title page. The original printing of this condensed version of Alice for younger readers was discarded by Dodgson in much the same way as its 1865 predecessor. Dodgson rejected the entire first edition of 10,000 copies in 1889, which was printed on toned paper, on the grounds that the pictures were "far too bright and gaudy". The first 4,000 rejected sheets were sent to America for publication under the imprint of Macmillan & Co. of New York, and a second edition of 10,000 copies was prepared, dated 1890, and priced four shillings. The most notable alteration between the first and second editions is the printing of the sheets on white rather than toned paper and the change to the illustration of Alice and the Cheshire Cat on p. 34, removing Alice's profile. Following slow sales, it was re-issued priced one shilling in 1896 (though not dated as such).

        THE AZTEC TREASURE-HOUSE: A ROMANCE OF CONTEMPORANEOUS ANTIQUITY ..

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1890.. Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii [xi-xii] [13] 14-446 [447-448: ads] [note: first leaf is a blank], fly leaves at front and rear, nineteen inserted plates with illustrations by Frederick Remington, original decorated gray-green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First edition. Adventure novel in which an American archeologist finds a surviving remnant of the Aztec empire in Central America. "An attempt to write a serious adult adventure story on the concept of surviving Aztec antiquities." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1181. Alluding to William Dean Howells, famous as the chief proponent of the new school of realism in American literature, one contemporary reviewer wrote, "Mr. Janvier has produced a rattling, galloping romance of the sort that must fill Mr. Howells's soul with bitterness ... Mr. Janvier may now be hailed as the American Haggard ... Moreover he is a literary workman of another and higher order than the biographer of Quatermain ..." - Lippincott's Monthly Magazine, December, 1890, p. 865. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 2-100 and (1981) 1-107. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 447. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 122. In 333. Blanck, Peter Parley to Penrod, p. 145 (borderline selection). Wright (III) 1941. BAL 10841. Cloth a bit rubbed at spine ends and corner tips, a nearly fine, very bright copy. Tipped in is a two-page autograph letter signed (ALs) dated 5 June 1894 from Janvier to Richard Watson Gilder, editor of CENTURY MAGAZINE and one of the key literary figures of the period, in which Janvier declines what was apparently a writing assignment from Gilder to provide some sort of travel sketch on Provence, stating that he preferred to go there "at our own expense" and "will write what I want to write-and the issue shall remain with God!" In passing, he explains his reasons for demanding high pay and his dislike of literary syndication. An interesting letter. The book is housed in a custom quarter red morocco and red cloth slipcase with spine panel elaborately tooled and lettered in gold. A pleasing copy of a handsome book. (#149644)

        A. D. 2000

      Chicago: Laird & Lee Publishers, 1890.. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 9-415 [416: ad] [note: first leaf is a half title leaf], fifteen inserted plates with illustrations by W. Bretsnyder, original decorated navy blue bevel-edged cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, headbands, no flyleaves, brown coated endpapers. First edition. Published in paper wrappers as Laird & Lee's "Library of Choice Fiction," number 8 at 50¢, and in cloth (as here) at $1. There were two hardbound issues (printings?) of this book (priority unknown) with title pages dated 1890 (later reprints have no dates printed on the title page), one variant with page [416] blank and no half title leaf, the other with an advertisement for Gautier's Mademoiselle de Maupin on page [416] and a half title leaf; this being the variant with the half title leaf and with the advertisement on page [416]. An interesting novel, with many elements of super science, set in the United States of 2000 A. D. The technological climax of the book is the conquest of the North Pole. Many parallels to Bellamy's LOOKING BACKWARD, but particularly sketchy with regard to economics. In his preface Fuller comments that "lest originality of title and theme be denied, it is but justice to myself to state that both were assumed in November, 1887." For a lengthy discussion of this novel see Ben Fuson, "Three Kansas Utopian Novels of 1890," Extrapolation, 12 (December 1970), 7-24. Also see Clareson, The Emergence of American Science Fiction: 1880-1915, pp. 290-92 who notes that this book "introduces [the natural disaster motif] into American science fiction ..."

        Mährchenspiel Schneewittchen

      Mainz: Jos. Scholz, 1890. Cöster, Mathilde. Four stand-up scenes with forty-five die-cut paper figures, which can be used to stage the fairy tale of Snow White. The pieces include thirteen two-sided figures for our major players, including Snow White, the Seven Dwarves, Prince Charming, and the Evil Queen; six additional one-sided figures for minor characters; five hats and hairpieces; three costumes; and eighteen smaller animals and objects. Each of the four scenes is crafted from multiple layers of paper, which create convenient slots for positioning characters. The scenes can be propped up using the ribbon-reinforced easel stand on the back. A single-page sheet suggests twelve example scenes; for easy legibility, the die-cut pieces are printed in red and the background in black. A four-page text insert offers an introduction and written instructions. Housed in a box with a pictorial chromolithographed label to the top and gilt edge decorations. Inside the bottom of the box is what looks like a pair of wooden doors made of paper that are hinged and open to reveal a space for storing the figures when they are not in use. The inside cover of the box is stamped with the logo of Vetter's Magazin für Jugend-Beschäftigungen. Expected wear to box, some gilt trim loss, prop on the back of one scene loose, else a fine set.
