         Log of H.M. Ships 'Tamar', ' Hibernia', 'Edinburgh' , [, 'Royal Sovereign' and 'Hawke'. At sea.

      -93 1891 - Six manuscript logs in one volume. Folio (c. 32 x 20 cm.) pp.225. Contemporary red morocco, titled in gilt to upper cover, marbled endpapers. 47 hand-sketched illustrations comprising maps, charts, coastal profiles and watercolour views, including Torbay, Salrock Pass, Portland harbour, Coruna harbour, Ferrol harbour, Las Palmas &c. A very attractive volume of ship's logs compiled by an able midshipman. These ships were deployed around the North Sea, Mediterranean and North Africa and describe the surveying and monitoring of activity during the period just after naval activity in the Baltic. HMS Tamar was a Royal Navy ship built by the Samuda Brothers at Cubitt Town, London, and launched in Britain in 1863. She served as a cruiser at Hong Kong and from 1897 , gave her name to the shore station HMS Tamar in Hong Kong. Royal Sovereign was built on 30 September 1889 and completed in 1892. Built at Portsmouth Dockyard she was 410 feet long and had a maximum cruising speed of 17 knots. She cost £913,986 to build. Her armaments included four 67-ton 13.5-inch guns and several smaller calibre guns. She was the name ship of a class of battleships built in response to the Naval Defence Act of 1889 which allocated £21.5 million pounds to construct 18 torpedo gunboats, 42 cruisers, and 10 battleships. Traditionally Britain had been content to maintain a larger fleet than her rivals so as to have "maritime supremacy". Recent thinking in naval strategy had come to the conclusion that this was insufficient, and that total "command of the sea" was required. The 1888 and 1889 Naval exercises had demonstrated the great difficulty of implementing Britain's traditional policy of blockading any enemy within its own ports, because of the problems keeping steamships indefinitely at sea at long distances from home ports. There was also continuing concern of war with allied France and Russia and although Britain had more ships of every class than these nations combined, this was not considered sufficient to guarantee such an enemy could be contained. Authors name misspelled on upper cover "Perrean". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         MEMOIRS OF THE 149th REGT. N.Y. VOL. INFT. 3d BRIG., 12th AND 20th A.C. (Presentation, Association Copy)

      Author Published, Syracuse, NY 1891 - First edition with two errata slips at the rear. 426 pages, illustrated with portraits and woodcuts. Frontis of the author, with tissue guard. Floral end papers. Pictorial cloth binding with silver and black highlights, bevelled edges. THIS COPY IS INSCRIBED on front free end page: "To Maj. W.G. Tracy With the Compliments of the Author." Maj. Tracy was an aide-de-camp to Gen. H. W. Slocum, and saw action during Sherman's March to Georgia, was wounded twice, once in the arm (at Chancellorsville, per Broadfoot's "The Medical and Surgical History of the Civil War--case 1785) and once in the leg (during the Battle of Bentonville on the march from Savannah). It is also documented that Tracy was originally from Syracuse (the home of the 149th Regiment)--on page 692 of Volume IV of Johnson & Buel's "Battles and Leaders of the Civil War," there is a narrative of Tracy interviewing a Union deserter, who was originally from Syracuse, and being able to identify him. There is a bookplate inside the front board of a "William Marion Tracy," of whom I can find no information, but presumably a relative (son? grandson?) of Maj. Tracy's. The 149th New York Volunteers was heavily involved in conflict, seeing action at Chancellorsville, Gettysburg (including the famous defense of Culp's Hill), Lookout Mountain Tennessee, and the battles of Savannah and Atlanta. Overall the 149th had a total enrollment of 1,155 men, of whom 486 were killed or wounded. Frontis is a little loose and there are a number of pencil notes by a previous owner in small, neat hand, possibly by the original Maj. Tracy. Very good condition.

         The Condition of Women Workers Under the Present Industrial System. An Address by Ida M. Van Etten, at the National Convention of the American Federation of Labor held at Detroit, Mich., December 8th, 1890 (Richard T. Ely's copy)

      New York: American Federation of Labor / Samuel Gompers, 1891. First Edition. Desirable copy of an important document, one of the first serious attempts to secure safe working conditions and better hours for working women, speaking out especially against the so-called "Sweating System" of the underground garment industry. Van Etten (d. 1894), scion of one of the oldest New York families, was an influential writer and speaker on women's issues, serving as the secretary of the Working Women's Society of New York. Curiously, she died unhinged and penniless (in fact, $120 in arrrears) in her room at the Hotel Continental in Paris, where a contemporary newspaper account notes "...[her] room was found to contain nothing of any value. The most of her belongings consisted of papers and a stack of unsent letters appealing for help, some of them of not very recent date" (New York Times, Mar 8, 1894). This the copy of Progressive economist and journalist Richard T. Ely (1854-1943), with his ink ownership signature at head of front wrapper. Ely was the founder of the American Economic Association, and a noted author on labor issues. Of the current work, OCLC locates approximately 8 physical locations, all with Washington, D.C. imprints; there appear to be no institutionally catalogued examples of the New York printing, nor can we establish priority. Octavo. Staple-bound pamphlet; printed paper wrappers; 16pp. Faint vertical crease; front cover lightly foxed and soiled, with wax-pencil ownership initial at upper margin near bound edge, else a Very Good, well-preserved copy. Ownership signature in ink of R[obert] T. Ely to front cover. At base of cover: "Copyright by Samuel Gompers, 1891."

         ATLAS TO ACCOMPANY THE OFFICIAL RECORDS OF THE UNION AND CONFEDERATE ARMIES.

      Washington 1891-95. - 175 plates. “After the Civil War, the U.S. Government and the Army embarked on a landmark joint endeavor. For the first time in American history, the federal government itself – led by the Army – compiled a military history. The history was composed of all of the official military documents from both sides of the war, and it proved to be a massive production. It was called War of the Rebellion: A Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, and referred to as Official Records or the O.R. It contained official reports, letters, telegrams strength returns, and casualty lists, covering all theaters throughout the war. The Army then gathered the official military maps to supplement the O.R. The Atlas to Accompany the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies. The maps had been drawn during the war by engineers, draftsmen, and sometimes even generals themselves for actual military use. Only a few maps, drawn later by cartographers, were added for historical purposes. Tactical and strategic maps indicate troops dispositions; defense lines, redoubts, and fortifications of key sites are clearly shown. Terrain maps often contain picket positions, signal stations, and lines of march. Some are rough sketches, some cartographic masterpieces. All are informative and reveal the knowledge – or lack of knowledge – that both sides possessed about the terrain, and the strength and the position of opposing troops. The index to the maps is an invaluable aid. It refers to campaigns and battles, rivers, creeks, lakes bays, islands, bridges, fords, ferries, landings, roads, railroads, mountains, towns, churches, forts, and much more. The atlas is an indispensable tool for both historical and Civil War buff. The Official Military Atlas not only adds to an understanding of the Civil War, but is vital to a complete understanding.” 3 volumes. ¾ simulated morocco, corners neatly taped – and thus protected, gold tooling, title stamped in gold on spine and front board, gold stamping bright. All pages fine excepting minor offsetting to the uniform and flag plates, which occurs in all the (20+) sets we have seen. Plates correctly sewn through tabs. A very fine Atlas in excellent condition. Most sets that come on the market are ex-libris and in poor condition. $6,000.00 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Good-bye My Fancy

      Philadelphia: David McKay, Publishers, 1891 Philadelphia: David McKay, Publishers, 1891. First edition, first printing. Publisher's deep red V cloth over beveled boards, lettered in gilt with facsimile signature to front board and ornate gilt-stamped "D. McKay" to bottom of front board (Myerson's A binding), top edge gilt, frontispiece portrait of Whitman with no caption (Myerson's style A), tissue guard still intact. About near fine with some light wear to extremities and page edges lightly toned, with two bookplates to front pastedown and some offsetting to front free endpaper, some light pencil marks to endpapers from previous booksellers, otherwise a beautiful, tight copy. Myerson A13. From the library of Pulitzer Prize winning author Kenneth Silverman. Named for a short verse within the work, Good-bye My Fancy is Whitman's second annex to his earlier and most famous collection of poetry, Leaves of Grass. It is a collection of short poems and essays, and candidly expresses Whitman's musings in the last year of his life. The work includes such essays as "Old Poets," "American National Literature" (subtitled "Is there any such thing, or can there ever be?"), and "A Death Bouquet," among others. Whitman's characteristic personal tone shines through in this work, which critics note is arguably even more honest and passionate than his previous writing. This collection would later be included as the second annex to Leaves in the final "Deathbed Edition" published before Whitman's death in 1892. Chiefly a biographer, Professor Kenneth Silverman co-directed the American Civilization program at NYU, and won not only the Pulitzer but also the Bancroft Prize for his work The Life and Times of Cotton Mather. Other notable works of his include biographies of Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel F. B. Morse. A magician himself, he also profiled the life of Harry Houdini. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

         Ten Years in Equatoria and the Return with Emin Pasha.

      London and New York: Frederick Warne & Co.,, 1891. Translated from the Original Italian Manuscript by Mrs. J. Randolph Clay, assisted by Mr. I. Walter Savage Landor. 2 volumes, octavo. Original dark red cloth blind-stamped with overall crocodile-skin pattern, titles and authorial portrait gilt to spines, titles in black and pictorial decoration in black, gilt, and silver to front boards, brown coated endpapers, top edges untrimmed. 60 plates including frontispieces, from sketches, paintings and photographs, and variously coloured, tinted, or in black and white, 104 black and white illustrations to the text, 4 folding maps in end-pockets, of which 3 partially coloured. Contemporary prize label (Kidderminster and District School of Science and Art) to front pastedown of vol. 1. Trivial rubbing to extremities, light spotting to endpapers, prelims, and one of the folding maps ("Map of the Return Journey"). A superb copy. First edition in English. "Most books on Emin Pasha and Stanley have something to say about Casati, but do little justice to the work of this important explorer" (Howgego). Casati (1838-1902) set out for Sudan in 1879 to join the expedition of Romolo Gessi, who was in need of a surveyor. He was an early European visitor to Azande and Mangbetu lands, and his account greatly expanded contemporary European geographic and ethnographic knowledge of equatorial Africa. During the Mahdist revolt in 1883 he joined the beleaguered Emin Pasha at Juba. In 1886, following news of Stanley's relief expedition, he was despatched by Emin on a reconnaissance mission south to Bunyoro, during which he was constantly harassed by the despotic King Kabarega, and was with the Ottoman governor when Stanley finally arrived two years later. Casati's account, which is extremely critical of Stanley, was originally published in Italian earlier the same year.

The book has been expertly repaired: the usual problem of perished gutta-percha binding meant that several pages/plates were loose in the binding, but none were adversely affected, with the gilt edges in very good condition. The front hinge has been strengthened with Japanese tissue. Offsetting on the limitation page (the first leaf), a little occasional light marginal spotting, the plates clean and bright. Very good. ***Ferguson 12516. *** Please use [Ask Bookseller a Question] option below to confirm availability and get accurate postage quote for this item (the amount quoted is for an 'average' hard-cover book of up to 1kg in weight).

         Klinische Studie über die halbseitige Cerebrallähmung der Kinder. Beiträge zur Kinderheilkunde aus dem 1. öffentlichen Kinderkranken-Institute in Wien. Herausgegeben von Dr. Max Kassowitz. III. Heft.

      Moritz Perles, Wien 1891 - 8vo (245 x 158 mm). [2], 220, [2] pp., 8 folding tables. Contemporary half cloth, paper label to spine (cloth stained and chipped at foot, extremities rubbed, corners bumped), book block little weak. Text with marginal light browning, 3 leaves with dog-ear. p. 163/64 and 173/74 misbound/interchanged. ---- Norman F14; Meyer-Palmedo/Fichtner 1891a; Grinstein 27; Waller I, 3248. - RARE FIRST EDITION of the first independent (non-journal) work by Freud which appeared directly before the epochal aphasia study. Freud deals with this area until 1897, a time when he was no longer looking for physiological explanations but psychological explanations for mental disorders. All subsequent publications dealt with the new concept for which Freud coined the name Psychoanalysis in 1896. Rie (1863-1931) was a pediatrician, colleague, and close friend of Freud. The two became acquainted while Freud was in charge of the Neurological Department at the Institute for Children's Diseases in Vienna and co-authored the 1891 Klinische Studie über die halbseitige Cerebrallähmung der Kinder, a study of unilateral paralysis in children. Pp 213-220 comprises a bibliography of 180 publications on this topic. Freud schrieb die beiden Werke, davon eines zusammen mit O. Rie, welcher auch Arzt seiner Kinder wurde, nachdem er bereits seine Privatpraxis auf der Berggasse 19 bezogen hatte u. nur noch an wenigen Nachmittagen als Neurologe am Kinder-Krankeninstitut von M. Kassowitz arbeitete. - Visit our website for additional images and information. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Secondo autografo firmato da André Gide, Albert Mockel sempre, in un'altra pagina di occhietto: "A Albert Mockel perché è mio amico André Gide il suo autentico.". Sorprendente copia "doppio" del Giappone, pagine comprendenti due occhietto, due pagine di giustificazione stampato (# 39 e 25 sul 20 Giappone numerato da 21 a 40) e due frontespizi. Questa caratteristica sembra chiarito da questa lettera autografa firmata Gide tre pagine, indirizzata a Albert Mockel e montata su scheda dopo queste pagine duplicate in cui compare il dedicatario ricevuto Gide due firmato copie di questo libro e pose, sorprendentemente, i due acquisti nella stessa copia. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Première édition dans le commerce, un des 20 exemplaires numérotés sur Japon, tirage de tête avec 20 Chine.

Etonnant "double" exemplaire sur Japon, comportant deux pages de faux-titre, deux pages de justification du tirage (N°39 et 25 sur les 20 Japon numérotés de 21 à 40) et deux pages de titre. Cette particularité est élucidée par cette lettre autographe signée d'André Gide de trois pages, adressée à Albert Mockel et montée sur onglet après ces pages en double, dans laquelle il semble que le dédicataire a reçu d'André Gide deux exemplaires dédicacés de cet ouvrage et qu'il a placé, étonnamment, les deux dédicaces dans le même exemplaire.

First edition in English. "Most books on Emin Pasha and Stanley have something to say about Casati, but do little justice to the work of this important explorer" (Howgego). Casati (1838-1902) set out for Sudan in 1879 to join the expedition of Romolo Gessi, who was in need of a surveyor. He was an early European visitor to Azande and Mangbetu lands, and his account greatly expanded contemporary European geographic and ethnographic knowledge of equatorial Africa. During the Mahdist revolt in 1883 he joined the beleaguered Emin Pasha at Juba. In 1886, following news of Stanley's relief expedition, he was despatched by Emin on a reconnaissance mission south to Bunyoro, during which he was constantly harassed by the despotic King Kabarega, and was with the Ottoman governor when Stanley finally arrived two years later. Casati's account, which is extremely critical of Stanley, was originally published in Italian earlier the same year. Howgego IV C15. [Attributes: First Edition]

Charles Sprague Sargent was the first director of Harvard's Arnold Abortetum and noted dendrologist. Sarget helped create 21 million acres of national forest reserves. This work was his magnum opus and the authoritative source on North American trees. "The Silva documents the minutest, fullest details as to the characteristics in trunk, in branch, in twig, in leaf, in flower, in fruit, of every tree hitherto observed in all the length and breadth of North America in 14 volumes. The narrative by Sargent is an account of its climatical and geographic range." ???????????????????????ÃÆ'‚· Mariners' Museum Library Gallery. "Unsparing in editorial and artistic talent it stands today as the most elaborate of American botanical books: costly, but abundantly paying its way, and a rarely good investment for early purchasers. For twenty-one years the "Silva" was in process of making. The publication of its beautiful folio volumes was distributed over the years 1891-1902, and the originally contemplated thirteen had grown to fourteen." Trelease, William.

         Paul Revere

      , n.d. n.d.. Rectangular oak plank with beveled edges on the two longer opposite sides, 5” x 5” x 0.5”. From the John S. Reigart Collection of Historical American Relics. Handwritten by Reigart on a square label affixed at bottom: “Panel / made of Wood / from the / House / where / Paul Revere / was born / at Boston Mass / House Taken down / April 1891.”John S. Reigart was born in 1833 or 1834 in New York City where he resided for most of his life. By occupation, he was a bank clerk with very precise penmanship which is evident on his identification label. During the mid and late 19th century Reigart assembled a comprehensive collection of relics from every period of America’s history. He was clearly aware of the importance of provenance of all the pieces in his collection and included detailed documentation in the form of period ink script notes, most of which he attached to the actual artifacts. About ten years ago, Reigart’s collection was discovered in the estate of a deceased Connecticut book dealer.
