      Providence, RI: 1890 - Quarto (289 × 239 mm). Original brown "alligator skin" cloth on card wraps, title gilt to the upper panel, pinkish buff endpapers. Cloth chipping around the edges, some spotting and browning, but overall very good. Original albumen print (184 × 228 mm) mounted as a frontispiece, 58 leaves of blueprint, rectos only, most with illustrations or historiated initials, embossed, gilt notary public stamp with ribbons in the name of John T. Henthorn to the last leaf. Cruise of the 40-foot steam yacht Riverside in March 1890, with a crew of five, who are pictured in a wonderful albumen photo showing them lounging in the bow of the yacht. The rest of the book, chronicling the Riverside's cruise, is reproduced by blueprinting, cyanotype sun-printing - white lettering and illustrations against a darker blue ground - hence the title. A somewhat facetious account of a pleasure cruise down Narragansett Bay, during which the crew members behaved exactly as you might expect a similar gathering would behave today - "Quartermaster has just discovered that a jug of water is on board. It was voted to throw it overboard, but upon reconsideration it was decided to keep it as it might be needed to feed the boiler " After two days they put in at Newport and "repaired to the Hotel The female portion of Newport's Society is very retiring and select as far as our observations intended " Then home again. Hand lettered, with competent caricature illustrations to most pages. This is the copy of R.J. Gilmore, whose name is gilt-blocked on the front cover. The other members of the party are listed, along with their role for the duration of the trip, at the illustration of the dining room of the yacht. Thus Gilmore is described as Bos'n's Mate, C.B. Manville as Supercargo, Geo. H. Remington as Steward, F.A. Larkin, Assistant Engineer, and J.T. Henthorn, Quartermaster. It seems likely that the group came together through mutual interests in the field of engineering. Henthorn was an engineer, the author of a book on the Corliss engine; Manville was the founder of the Manville Covering Co., dealing with asbestos products; and Remington was patentee of a number of minor mechanical improvements, perhaps this goes some way to explaining the use of blueprinting to reproduce the Riverside's humorous log. Probably a unique survival, no copies traced institutionally or at auction, not recorded by either of the relevant bibliographies. Not in Toy or Morris & Howland. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Vintage photographic portrait

      1890. VON GLOEDEN, Wilhelm. Head-and-shoulders portrait of a Sicilian youth. [Taormina, Sicily], circa 1890. Original albumen photograph, measuring 4-1/2 by 6-1/2 inches, mat size 8 by 11 inches. $1500.Vintage head-and-shoulders portrait in profile of a Sicilian youth in headdress.“Over 80 percent of Von GloedenÂ’s photographs were circulated through traditional postcards, magazines and advertisements. In Germany, his work could be found in ‘health and physiqueÂ’ magazines. Britain used hundreds of his draped studies as advertising for ‘romantic Mediterranean vacationsÂ’ in travel magazines” (W.B. Nally), or they “masqueraded as artistsÂ’ models” (Frizot, 271). “Von Gloeden was one of the earliest gay photographers of the male nude. His best known images— those enormously popular among the Victorians— depict nude boys in garlands or scant robes acting out Homeric themes; but many of his other images, which once totaled over 3,000, are [simply] elegant studies of the male body” (Jason Goldman). It has been estimated that at least two-thirds of Von GloedenÂ’s negatives were destroyed by Mussolini, who considered them objectionable. This head-and-shoulders portrait in profile is posed in the classical manner, with eyes looking upward. See McDarrah, 515. Small surface abrasion to left margin (not affecting subject), minor creasing to corners. Near-fine condition. Scarce.

SCARCE FIRST 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. One of the greatest feats in African travel, Stanley traveled thousands of miles in his claims to the great stretches of continental African territory.

        American Testimonial Banquet

      1890. First Edition . STANLEY, Henry M. The American Testimonial Banquet to Henry M. Stanley, In recognition of his Heroic Achievements in the cause of Humanity, Science & Civilization. London: no publisher, May 30, 1890. Octavo, original elaborately tooled full polished brown calf, patterned endpapers, all edges gilt. Housed in a custom chemise and clamshell box. $3000.First edition of this scarce volume issued to those invited to the exclusive 1890 American Testimonial Banquet honoring explorer Henry Stanley, with five vintage prints of Stanley and his chief officers, each mounted on blue paper and tipped to heavy gilt-edged card stock.Perhaps no European is more closely connected with Africa than Lord Stanley. His final journey to Africa as head of the 1887 Emin Pasha Relief Expedition was particularly exceptional in its terrible human cost, resulting in the death of “over 500 people directly connected with the expedition” (New York Times). Stanley and his officers “Jephson, Parke, Stairs” and Nelson covered hundreds of miles and “marched in “grim conditions” with a “steady trickle of thefts and desertions, interspersed with attacks by tribesmen… Every day several men died of starvation” (Jeal, 342). Yet Stanley still managed to compile important data on the Pygmies and discovered the Ruwenzori, or “Mountains of the Moon.” The perilous journey nearly cost Stanley his life and ended sadly when Emin Pasha expressed anger at Stanley’s interference, ultimately refusing to leave Africa. This handsome programme, issued to those invited to an exclusive May 30, 1890 American Testimonial Banquet held in London some time after Stanley’s return, points to his signal importance as explorer, adventurer and a hero of the Victorian era. With copies likely limited to the 400 or so people at the affair, this lavish volume contains five vintage prints—of Stanley and his chief officers Stairs, Parke, Nelson and Jephson—all in attendance. Each print, measuring 3-1/2 by 5-1/2 inches, is mounted on pale blue cards displaying captions, signature facsimiles and tipped to heavy gilt-edged card stock. The elaborately tooled and embossed programme also contains a list of committee members and honorary stewards, including James Whistler, P.T. Barnum and Bret Harte, as well as a tipped-in plate of “Shield and Medallions” and accompanying description, along with the evening’s menu, music programme and “Toast List.” With laid-in invitation card (measuring 5 by 6-1/2 inches) completed in manuscript to admit a “Dr. A.J. Comer,” with the “No. 100” at the upper left corner crossed out and “99” written above.Interior and prints generally fresh with only lightest scattered foxing, joints reinforced. A near-fine copy, scarce.

        In Darkest England

      London: International Headquarters of the Salvation Army,, [1890]. and the Way Out. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt, new endpapers. Folding chromolithographic frontispiece. Rebacked with original spine laid down and new endpapers. Stamp of Ashton-under-Lyne Public Libraries to top edge, library number to the spine. Text block lightly toned, occasional pencilled corrections and underlinings to text. Nonetheless a very good presentable copy. First edition, very scarce presentation copy inscribed by Booth on the half-title: "With faith and hope, William Booth, November 7.90." Booth, the founder of the Salvation Army, had considerable help in the writing of In Darkest England from the campaigning journalist W. T. Stead, fellow Salvationist Suzie Forest Swift, and Commissioner Frank Smith. Stead appears to have done most of the writing, but pointed out in a letter to a friend "the sole responsibility and the dominating mind was [Booth's] and his alone." "Booth's colossal self-confidence, his burning sense of injustice coupled with unswerving devotion to his purpose, and his deep sympathy with the unfortunate, made of him an evangelist and an organiser of the first order."

        Thirty Years After: An Artist's Story of the Great War

      1890. First Edition . (CIVIL WAR) FORBES, Edwin. Thirty Years After: An Artist's Story of the Great War. New York: Fords, Howard & Hulbert, (1890). Two volumes. Folio (12 by 16 inches), original brown cloth, patterned endpapers. $4000.First edition of a richly illustrated folio two-volume Civil War memoir by Edwin Forbes, widely hailed as “a founder of etching as an art in this country,” with 20 half-tone equestrian portraits of Union officers after oil paintings by him and nearly 300 full-page and in-text wood engravings made from his sketches at the front illustrating the day-to-day life of the Union armies during the years 1862-65, in original bright gilt-stamped cloth.Edwin Forbes accompanied the Army of the Potomac as staff artist for Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper, where his sketches of camp life and battlefields appeared throughout the Civil War. Historian William Cooper, Jr. notes: ""the war and his experiences in it remained central to him for the rest of his life."" (Edwin Forbes and the Civil War). The war led Forbes to develop a fundamental ""habit of quick and trenchant drawing from life which… influenced all his later production, and the sketches themselves were his main stock in trade… In 1876 copper-plate etchings from his war sketches were published as Life Studies of the Great Army, and received an award at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. The original prints were bought by General Sherman, and were placed in his office in the War Department in Washington"" (ANB). Thirty Years After conveys ""the universality of the soldiers' experience… Almost 300 etchings taken from Forbes' field sketches, including those in Life Studies, dominate Thirty Years After. To these Forbes added 20 half-tone equestrian portraits from original oil paintings… Twentieth-century historians of etching consider Forbes a founder of etching as an art in this country"" (Cooper). Dornbusch III:537. Interior fine, original cloth in exceptionally nice condition. A beautiful copy.

        He inoi ma nga tamariki.[Napier?, printed by Robert Coupland Harding?, 1889?]. 8vo (18 x 12.5 cm). Single leaf, printed on 1 side.

      - Books in Maori 1246; Williams, supp. 779a; WorldCat (3 copies); for Coupland Harding: McKenzie, "Harding, Robert Coupland", in: DNZB (online ed.). Rare leaflet containing five Christian prayers for children in the Maori language, an offprint of a page from an almanac ("Maramataka mo te tau") probably for the year 1890. Robert Coupland Harding (1849-1916), "New Zealand's first and most eminent typographer" (McKenzie), printed these almanacs for the years 1883 to 1890 and 1892, so presumably also the separate leaves of prayers, as the catalogue of the Alexander Turnbull Library suggests. The present one opens with a quotation from Luke 11:1 and an introductory paragraph, followed by the title in capitals, which translates as "A prayer for the children". The prayers themselves are presented under three numbered headings: I for little children (with one prayer for the morning and one for the afternoon), II for children above age 10 (with the same) and III for the beginning of school.With a couple creases (one through the corner of the text), some minor foxing and a few small marginal tears, chips or holes. A rare Maori leaflet with prayers for children.

        Fine unsigned Tableau Vivant Photograph representing 'The Death of Boadicia' by Hughes & Mullins (Duke of Connaught, 1850-1942, Son of Queen Victoria, Governor General of Canada) with his sister BEATRICE (Mary Victoria Feodore, 1857-1944, Princess, Daughter & Companion of Queen Victoria) & her husband Prince Henry Maurice of BATTENBERG (1858-1896, Colonel)]

      1890 - showing the family dressed in mediaeval costume, the Princes are standing either side of the Princess who is lieing, apparently dying, on a bed, other members of the household are standing behind her, the young woman could be Princess Ella of Hesse, stamped 'carbon print' on the verso, 10" x 8", no place, (Osborne, Isle of Wight) no date, c. The practice of the Household performing tableau vivants over the New Year was revived some time after the death of the Prince Consort. There were normally several scenes, each representing a letter or word, followed by a final scene depicting the entire word. The Tableau often reproduced paintings - a particularly successful one being 'La Rixe' (The Brawl) after the painting by E. Meissonier which had been given to the Prince Consort in 1856. The scene was a quarrel in a tavern which Queen Victoria considered 'a truthful presentation of the picture'. They were not always so well received - a biblical tableau of Naomi and Ruth in 1888 was described by the Queen as 'not quite so successful as it might have been, owing to the ladies getting the giggles and shaking'. The Tableau Vivant photo is an unusual form of photography, which Queen Victoria had a passion for from the 1850's. This is one of the later ones which are more difficult to find as the majority of them have remained in Royal Collections. From the collection of Lady Patricia Ramsay, daughter of the Duke of Connaught.

        Monographie der baltischen Bernsteinbäume. Vergleichende Untersuchungen über die Vegetationsorgane und Blüten, sowie über das Harz und die Krankheiten der baltischen Bernsteinbäume.

      Danzig, Naturforschende Gesellschaft, 1890. - Large 4to (32.5 : 26.5 cm). (8), 151 p., 18 plates, all but one lithographed in colours, with 1 leaf of explanation each. First edition. The 19th century saw three great and nowadays scarce monographs on amber inclusions. The earliest was Berendt?s ?Die im Bernstein befindlichen Reste der Vorwelt?, 1845-56, followed by ?Flora des Bernsteins? by Goeppert, Menge and Conwentz, 1883-86. The third and most significant is the present book. Based on histological studies of wood inclusions Conwentz undertakes a comprehensive description and a classification of the resinous tree generating Baltic amber deposits. His extinct species Pinus succinifera remained valid until the late 20th century. Most of the highly finished plates show microscopic images of thin sections. Plate XV pictures whole but abnormally altered pieces of amber. - Conwentz (1855-1922) used the rich amber collection of the Westpreußisches Provinzial-Museum Danzig which he directed from its foundation in 1879 until 1910. The natural history section of the museum went back to the cabinet of the Naturforschende Gesellschaft in Danzig founded in 1743. In 1880 the zoologist Anton Menge bequeathed his private collection of amber inclusions. - This copy belonged to the library of the botanist Eduard Strasburger, the founder of modern plant cell biology (1844-1912). His legacy stamp and a subsequent stamp of the Bonn botanical institute (where Strasburger worked from 1881) on title-page; both cancelled. - Stafleu & Cowan, no. 1192. - Binding a bit rubbed, hinges strongly. A clean copy. Contemporary black paste paper boards with red spine label, spine ends and corners stiffened with vellum. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        CAMP LIFE Twelve Photogravures from Original Photographs by S. R. Stoddard.

      Joseph Knight Company, Boston 1890 - [ii], 12 leaves of plates [complete]. No date of publication listed; circa 1890. Original green cloth binding with inset gravure on front cover; heavily worn and soiled, with some fraying. The rear inner hinge is detached, and the front inner hinge is weakened, leaving the text block intact. Most of the plates are foxed on the verso. A few page/plate edges are lightly soiled. One plate (title: Absorbed) has a small spot where a foreign object fused with the paper within the image area. The first three plates have a small tear near the hinge, and one plate has a small chip with loss to the margin on an inner corner. The title page and endpapers are lightly thumbcreased at the fore-edge. Four of the leaves of plates are moderately foxed, mainly to the edges of the image area and the margins. A few plates are almost devoid of foxing, while the remaining five plates have minor foxing, mostly to the margins. Includes "12 Photogravure plates with 18 illustrations from photographs of Adirondack scenery.Printed by the N.Y. Photo-Gravure Co., N.Y. This, by far, is Seneca Ray Stoddard's most important book: it contains most of his best examples, and the photogravures are wonderfully printed. It shows that he was more interested in capturing the actual feel of the place and its people than in presenting the standard tourist fare that most other photographers would produce. Few copies of this remarkable book are known, which leads one to believe all of his books were produced in very small editions." Hanson Collection catalog, p. 124. Seneca Ray Stoddard (1844-1917). Topics: Camping, New York state, Adirondack Mountains, Lake George Lake, Saint Lawrence River. First edition. Size: Oblong octavo (8vo) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      1890 - [a handsome copy] A Novel. In Three Volumes. London: Richard Bentley and Son, 1890. Original patterned paper-covered boards with brown cloth spines. First Edition, which consisted of 1,000 copies (of which, according to the publisher, only 492 were sold -- but that may have been Bentley's ruse to avoid paying Gissing "bonuses" that would kick in if 850 or all 1,000 were to sell). The young widow Miriam Baske leaves grey Lancashire for the sun of Naples, Italy, where she finds herself among many of her countrymen in a vastly different social scene -- similar to some of Henry James's accounts of transplanted Americans and Britishers, and reminiscent of MIDDLEMARCH. The novel marked the beginning of Gissing's series of psychological novels, "which were less concerned with the effects of environment and more concerned with the emotional and intellectual conflicts experienced by socially alienated characters" [Collie].~This was the only one of Gissing's novels to have been published by Bentley -- though Bentley had earlier paid for but not published MRS. GRUNDY'S ENEMIES, suppressed on moral grounds. For Bentley in the 1890s, this is quite a tame binding; trying to stave off the demise of the three-decker format, Bentley came out with some outrageously florid bindings in the final years (the three-decker died in 1894 anyway).~This is a bright copy, just about fine (a discreet owner ink-stamp on the corner of each front paste-down) -- condition in which Gissing three-deckers are now extremely scarce.

        L'inutile beauté

      1890. Victor-Havard, Paris 1890, 12x19cm, relié. - Victor-Havard, Paris 1890, 12x19cm, relié. - Edizione originale sulla carta corrente. Binding bronzo metà polpaccio, liscio indietro, guardie e contreplats di carta fatta a mano, copertura conservato, elegante pastiche vincolante firmato P. Goy & C. Vilaine. Firmato autografo dell'autore libreria Achilles Heymann. La libreria è stato "uno dei più pittoreschi tipi di Parigi. (...) Tutti gli uccelli (...), gli studenti, a volte anche letterato, è venuto a consultare questo uomo che sapeva tutto della biblioteca, il libro che stava leggendo o almeno acquistato. " (G. Baume Nella terra di lettere, 1922). Maupassant ha non aveva torto, come dice nella lettera di Henry Kistemaeckers di 7 mag 1882 "Rispondo in vendita presso la Libreria Nuova Vedrete i 3 dipendenti sono chiamati Achille Heymann, Ménard e .. Reboul (...) E 'essenziale (...) per fornire una copia ad ogni (...) -. Io andrò in biblioteca a scrivere una parola per ciascuno di essi - in questa casa ha venduto 900 copie di La Maison Tellier. Nessun giornale è usato come i tre di pubblicità. " [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale sur papier courant. Reliure en demi veau bronze, dos lisse, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, couverture conservée, élégante reliure pastiche signée de P. Goy & C. Vilaine. Envoi autographe signé de Guy de Maupassant au libraire Achille Heymann. Ce libraire était "un des types les plus pittoresques de Paris. (...) Toutes les perruches (...), des étudiants, quelquefois même des lettrés, venaient consulter cet homme qui savait tout de la librairie, sur le livre qu'il fallait avoir lu ou du moins acheté." (G. Baume Au pays des lettres, 1922). Maupassant ne s'y était pas trompé, comme il l'indique dans cette lettre à Henry Kistemaeckers du 7 mai 1882: "Je réponds de la vente à la Librairie Nouvelle. Vous verrez. Les 3 employés s'appellent Achille Heymann, Ménard et Reboul. (...) Il est indispensable (...) d'offrir un exemplaire à chacun (...) - Je passerai à la librairie écrire un mot pour chacun d'eux - Dans cette seule maison on a vendu 900 exemplaires de La Maison Tellier. Aucun journal ne vaut ces trois employés comme publicité."
