        The Doctor's Crime or Simply Horrible. A Detective Story told by The Coroner.

      London: Diprose and Bateman. n.d. [1891], 1891. First edition. 8vo. Publisher's blue paper wraps, very good indeed with some minor chipping and edgewear, some slight chipping to the spine panel, bright and sharp. An unusual survival. A scarce procedural detective story with a strong leaning towards the forensic approach and with a devious and manipulative female criminal. Intriguing.

        TESS OF THE D'URBERVILLES (Three-Volume First Edition; the Very Fine Estelle Doheny Copy)

      London: Osgood, McIlvaine, 1891. Hardy, Thomas. TESS OF THE D'URBERVILLES. A Pure Woman Faithfully Presented. London: Osgood, McIlvaine, 1891. First Edition, first issue. Three volumes, 8vo, original publisher's sand-colored cloth with gilt decorations and lettering designed by Charles Ricketts. This is the VERY FINE Estelle Doheny copy (Christie's, October 18th, 1988, lot 1384), her bookplate on the front free endpapers of all volumes. Originally the property of The British Club, Malaga, Spain with its bookplate on the front pastedowns. A remarkable set, bright and virtually unworn. Slightly foxed as always, two of the six inner hinges skillfully repaired, one corner just barely bumped. But with the exception of the as new Katherine de B. Parsons copy which we offered in 1994, the best copy we've handled in decades of specializing in Hardy. TESS OF THE D'URBERVILLES is now entering its third century of popularity and critical approval, one of the most enduring novels of the Victorian era. Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) remains the only English writer who is equally considered a literary giant as both novelist AND poet; his female characters are arguably the best drawn since Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte put down their quills, and his late Victorian subversive story-telling -- the publication of TESS in 1891 shocked, dismayed and forever changed the Victorian reading public with its presentation of a young, innocent and beautiful girl seduced by an aristocratic villain -- made him the direct heir of both Dickens and George Eliot but with fewer pulled punches. Purdy pp. 67-68. Quarter-morocco slipcase. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine.

        Libro De Las Virtuosas é Claras Mujeres El Qual Fizo é Compuso El Condestable Don Álvaro De Luna. Maestre De La Orden De Santiago.

      Sociedad De Bibliófilos Españoles, Madrid 1891 - XII - 370pp. en muy buen papel de hilo. Edición de solo 300 ejemplares. Perfecto ejemplar encuadernado por Brugalla a media piel con puntas. Lomera con nervios y florones. Corte superior dorado. =Prólogo de Marcelino Menéndez y Pelayo. Esta obra del Condestable Álvaro de Luna, se inscribe en una corriente muy de moda en la literatura cortesana del siglo XV, la del elogio de las mujeres, según el modelo iniciado por Boccacio en De Claris mulieribus. Frente a la misoginia generalizada de la sociedad de la época, que achacaba a las mujeres todos los vicios y males de la humanidad, Álvaro de Luna tomó las biografías de ciento diecisiete mujeres de la Biblia, de la Antigüedad clásica, de la mitología y de los primeros tiempos del cristianismo, como ejemplos femeninos que habían sabido superar los "defectos" y "vicios" propios de su sexo mediante una vida virtuosa o valerosa.

        Grammatica linguae numipu.

      Desmet, ID: Typis Puerorum indorum 8vo (22 cm; 8.5"). [3] ff., iv, 255, [1] pp., fold. tables.. 1891 The title-page of this grammar of the Nez Percé language gives the author as "Presbytero missionario e Soc. Jesu in Montibus Saxosis" ("By a missionary of the Society of Jesus in the Rocky Mountains") and that missionary seems to have been one of the two offered above. The work was printed at the "Typis Puerorum Indorum" ("Indian Boys' Press") of the Sacred Heart Mission, a press that (despite its name) was unlike that at the St. Ignatius Mission that was used for teaching the art of printing; the Desmet press was apparently solely operated by the Jesuits themselves and was not used as a teaching tool. Another difference between these two famous mission presses is that the origin of this one is not known — but it is suspected that it came new from St. Louis. The present copy of the grammar is of unbound, never sewn sheets. If the online catalogue records are to be believed, many of the copies in college and university libraries are incomplete, lacking pp. 130?-33. Or are those records a serious case of careless copy-cataloguing? => This copy is complete with all pages and both title-pages. Fine condition is a blue cloth clamshell box.

      London: Osgood McIlvaine, 1891. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Uncommon author's presentation copy, inscribed "To the Earl of Lytton from Thomas Hardy. June. 1891." Robert, 2nd Earl of Lytton, the former Viceroy of India and, at the time of presentation, British Ambassador to France, wrote under the pseudonym Owen Meredith. Hardy and the Earl met and became friends in 1887. This is a collection of short stories written by the great English writer Hardy. The short stories were published in serial magazines, some quite early in Hardy's career. The stories form a frame narrative, with ten members of a club each telling a story about a noble woman of the 17th or 18th century. Hardy gathered the stories together to publish them in book form. Bound in the original beige cloth, with the title-page, contents page, and cover design by Charles Ricketts. The earl's thank-you letter praising the book elicited a long reply from the author (dated 15 July 1891) printed in The Collected Letters of Thomas Hardy, ed. R. L. Purdy and M. Millgate, 1978, v. 1, p. 239-240. See also the reference in Michael Millgate, Thomas Hardy, 1982, p. 316. Purdy, p. 61-67; Sadleir 1106; Wolff 2976. In very good condition. LIT/011116.

Das alte Gesundheitsbad war im Angerviertel vor der Stadt zwischen Sendlingertor und Einlass an einem Stadtbach gelegen. Es wurde im Jahr 1782 von dem Wundarzt Xaver Gumppert nach dem Muster des Hofbades auf dem Lehel gegründet. Es ist in Baumgartners \"Polizei-Übersicht\" mit einer Radierung von Bollinger und in Regnets \"München in guter alter Zeit\" auf Blatt 43 mit seinem typischen Mansardendach abgebildet. Dort sind auch die Preise für warme und kalte Bäder, Wäsche, Heizen und Schwimmschule verzeichnet. Das Bad figuriert unter verschiedenen Betreibern auch in den gängigen Stadtführern des 19. Jahrhunderts wie Söltl 1837, Förster 1838 oder Universalhandbuch von München 1845. Die Lage entspricht der heutigen Müllerstr. 45. - Es liegt ein zweites Aquarell von Steinicken bei, das das Gebäude von hinten zeigt, wo ein Kaffeehaus angesiedelt war (14,5 x 22 cm).- Der Maler, Stahl- und Kupferstecher Christian Steinicken (1831-1896) hielt in Aquarellen zahlreiche Stadtansichten von München fest.

      Berlin (Hirschwald), 1891 - 1920. in 26 Bänden. je Band ca 500 S. mit zahlr. Abb. Hldr der Zeit und HLn der Zeit mit goldgeprägten Rücken. Kanten teils etwas berieben, innen sehr gut erhalten. Ordnungsgemäß aus den Beständen der Volkspolizei ausgesondertes Bibliotheksexemplar (Rückenschild, Stempel), gutes Ex. In diesen Bänden spiegelt sich der ungemeine Fortschritt den die Chirurgie, durch die Einführung der Röntgentechnik erfuhr, wieder. \"Als gegen Ende des Jahres 1895 die staunen erregende Nachricht durch die Welt ging, daß Röntgen in Würzburg unsichtbare Lichtstrahlen entdeckt habe, die durch feste Körper hindurchgehen könnten und auf photographische Platte ebenso einwirkten wie das Tageslicht, war es klar, daß eine solche Entdeckung für die Chirurgie von der größten Bedeutung sein mußte. Die Herstellung von Hittorfschen Röhren wurde schnell ein wichtiger Industriezweig, in den Kliniken wurden überall Durchleuchtungen am Platincyanürschirm vorgenommen, und photographische Schattenbilder von Frakturen und Luxationen und von Fremdkörpern in der Hand hergestellt. Schon auf dem nächsten Kongreß (1896.I.25) sprach Kümmel über die Diagnose der Knochenherde durch Röntgenstrahlen. Mit Hilfe des Funkeninduktors von 25 cm Funkenlänge und einer gut ausgepumpten Röhre von Müller in Hamburg war es ihm gelungen, die Expositionszeit bei den Aufnahmen, die zuerst 20 Minuten und länger betragen hatten, auf 10 - 45 Sekunden, bei der Aufnahme von Fingern sogar auf 3 Sekunden zu verkürzen und nicht nur eine dunkle Silhouette der Knochen zu bekommen, sondern ein zarter gezeichnetes Schattenbild, auf dem auch die Strukturen des Knochengewebes deutlich zu erkennen war. Als Probebilder zeigte er ein Typhusherd in einer Phalanx, einer Spina ventosa, ein Gumma im Radius, einen Fremdkörper in der Hand. Am Durchleuchtungsschirm hatte er die Bewegungen des Zwerchfells und den Herzbeutel erkennen können. Der Apparat, mit dem er arbeitete, sei allerdings eine ziemlich kostspielige Anlage. Er kostet `mit Rheostat und zahlreichen dazu gehörigen Röhren immerhin etwa 1500 M`. (Glückliche Zeiten!). Ferner von Kümmel (1898 II) `Die Behandlung des Lupus mit Röntgen-Strahlen und mit concentrirtem Licht`. Geissler (1898, I) berichtete über die Erfahrung der Bergmannschen Klinik, die wegen des weniger wirksamen Apparates nicht ganz so günstig waren wie die Hamburger. Sehe man von den metallischen Fremdkörpern ab, so sei eine besondere Förderung für die Diagnose und den Operationsplan durch die Röntgenbilder bisher nicht gewonnen worden. Was die Augen direkt gesehen und die Finger gefühlt hätten, wäre noch allein maßgebend geblieben, aber für den klinischen Unterricht und zur Überzeugung von Richtern und Laien wären die Bilder von Wert. Krause - Altona (1899, I) empfahl die Erneckeschen Röhren mit 2 Anoden, von denen die eine aus dünnem Platinblech bestehe. Aufnahmen von Hand und Vorderarm könne man damit in wenigen Sekunden machen, allerdings koste diese Röhre 36 M. Feilchenfeld - Berlin (1900, I) warnte vor nachteiligen Folgen der Bestrahlung. Von einigen Kollegen sei ein Kind mit Skoliose, um ein Bild von der Wirbelsäule zu bekommen, 1 Stunde und nach acht Tagen noch einmal 1 1/2 Stunden lang bestahlt worden und habe ein Eczema solare bekommen, ein Elektrotechniker ein Ekzem an den Händen, nachdem er sie häufig durchleuchtet hatte.\" Trendelenburg, Die ersten 25 Jahre der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Chirurgie, 1923, SS.114 ff.

        INDIENS PEAUX-ROUGES [caption title]

      Epinal, France, 1891. Backed with another contemporary hand-colored sheet, tacked down to a later sheet of heavy paper. A few small tears at edges, repaired with tape, minor loss. Light soiling and toning. About good. Issued shortly after Wounded Knee, this French print depicts the Ghost Dance (Danse des Esprits), as well as the Sioux war dance, scalping, and representatives of the Crow, Cheyenne, Ute, Pawnee, Mandan, Comanche, and Apache tribes. The American West was very popular in Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and this print is indicative of ongoing French fascination with Native American culture.

Having several family members who were deaf, including his mother and wife, Alexander Graham Bell?s primary scientific goal was to develop equipment to assist the hearing-impaired, with the telephone and the microphone initially conceived for that very purpose. In 1871, Bell had moved to Boston, where he taught at the Boston School for Deaf Mutes. He also taught at the Clarke School for the Deaf in Northampton, Massachusetts, and at the American School for the Deaf in Hartford, Connecticut. In 1880, the French government awarded Bell the Volta Prize given for achievement in electrical science. Bell used the prize money to set up his Volta Laboratory, an institution devoted to studying deafness and improving the lives of the deaf, in Washington, D.C.In 1890, Bell established the American Association to Promote the Teaching of Speech to the Deaf, with the objective of promoting oral communication, and was elected the New York City-based organization?s first President."

      Granite, Mt., 1891. 16mo. Original red paper boards, stamped in blind and gilt. A bit of edgewear and rubbing to the boards, else fine. A volume of interesting views of these mining towns in western Montana, just west of Helena and not far from the Anaconda copper mine. Granite, which thrived in the 1890s as a silver mining center, is now a ghost town, though Philipsburg still exists, with a population of 820 in the 2010 census. Though undated, this volume was likely produced during the area's silver mining heyday, and features views of the towns of Granite and of Philipsburg. Also included are views of a number of mines (with their names given), mining company offices, mining equipment, and miners themselves. There are also views of local schools, churches, hotels, homes, residences, shops, and a fishing scene. There is also an interesting view of Main Street in Granite on June 9, 1891, showing the street flooded with rushing water. Charles Weitfle, a German immigrant, was a Union photographer during the Civil War and is best known as a producer of stereoviews. He was based in Colorado in the 1870s and 1880s, until a Denver fire consumed his studio in 1883. He eventually moved to Cheyenne, and then to Granite County, Montana. A nice volume of views of mining towns in late 19th century Montana.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1891 Illustrated by John Tenniel. Later printing (Eighty-Fifth Thousand). Signed by Tenniel on the title page. Publisher's red cloth, with an illustration of Alice holding a pig to the front board, with an illustration of the Cheshire Cat to the rear panel, lettered in gilt, black coated endpapers. Very good, with some light toning to the spine, minor soiling to the boards, bright gilt, spine lightly starting inside the front cover, otherwise sturdy binding, bright and clean pages. Overall, a tight and attractive copy, extremely scarce with Tenniel's signature. Housed in a custom slipcase with matching chemise. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson wrote the nonsensical story Alice's Adventures in Wonderland under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll for Alice Liddell, who was a frequent subject of Dodgson's revolutionary portrait photography. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland includes a black and white frontispiece along with forty-two in-text illustrations by John Tenniel, Dodgson's frequent artist collaborator, with whom he had a somewhat volatile relationship due to their mutual perfectionism. Indeed, the true first issue of Alice was published by Macmillan in London in a print run of 2,000 copies, but was quickly suppressed because neither author nor artist approved of the quality of the reproductive illustrations.. Illus. by Tenniel, John. Signed by Illustrator. Hard Cover. Very Good.

      1891. The Decay of Lying | Pen Pencil and Poison | The Critic as Artist | The Truth of Masks. London: James R. Osgood, McIlvaine & Co., 1891. Original yellow-green cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition, which consisted of 900 copies (an additional 600 were printed for America with the Dodd, Mead imprint). This collection of essays was written at a time when "...sin in all its aspects became a preoccupation with Wilde, amounting almost to an obsession. This is evident in such of his writings as INTENTIONS, LORD ARTHUR SAVILE'S CRIME, and SALOME" [Hyde]. The cover design and lettering is by Charles Ricketts.~This is a near-fine copy (spine very slightly darkened, but essentially no wear at all). INTENTIONS has become a difficult title to acquire in collectible condition. Mason 341.

        Crozet's Voyage to Tasmania, New Zealand The Ladrone Islands, and the Philippines in the Years 1771-1772 Translated by H Ling Roth With a preface and a brief reference to the literature of New Zealand by Jas R Boose

      London: Truslove & Shirley, 1891. Octavo, folding chart, folding plan of outrigger canoe, and eight photogravure plates; very good, in crushed brown half morocco gilt by Bayntun. An attractive copy of the first English translation of Crozet's account of the South Pacific voyage of Marion-Dufresne, who in 1771 sailed to return the Tahitian native Ahutoru, who returned to Paris with Bougainville.The expedition was launched from Mauritius where the traveller Abbé Rochon was stranded; although he was denied permission to sail with the expedition Rochon later edited the present narrative from Crozet's log. The account contains a brief account of the Tasmanian Aborigines and a longer description of traditional Maori life, rich with primary information on food, hunting, warfare, shelter, fishing etcetera. After some misunderstanding Marion-Dufresne and about twenty crew were massacred by the Maori; the present edition contains Rochon's speculations on the cause of the massacre with an additional mid nineteenth-century anecdotal account included. Numerous scattered vignettes clarify issues in the narrative and there are informative appendices: aside from discussion of the massacre there is an appendix on the early literature of New Zealand and another on native canoes taken from Anson's Voyages. The edition was limited to 500 copies.

        Autograph Letter Signed "Désiré Charnay" to "Mon cher ami" with the Latest News after his Arrival to Algiers for the Winter Season, the Letter is Decorated with a Printed Vignette Depicting Arab Camel Riders in a Desert].

      Algiers 1891 - Algiers, 25 October 1891. Octavo (ca. 18x11,5 cm). 2 pp. Violet ink on thick paper with a printed vignette depicting travellers on camels in a desert. Centrefold mark, otherwise a very good letter. In a letter to his friend, noted French traveller and archaeologist D. Charnay describes his voyage to Algiers from France and his place of stay in the city: "Our place is 17 Rue Flatters, Alger, Belcourt, 20 minutes from town by train The weather has been very good, 24 to 28 degrees, also my wife is all right, although coughing always a little bit. I'm expecting rain and cold which will be a hardship for her" (in translation). The letter is decorated with an attractive printed vignette reproducing a photo of two Arab camel riders in a desert. "Claude-Joseph Désiré Charnay was a French traveller and archaeologist notable both for his explorations of Mexico and Central America, and for the pioneering use of photography to document his discoveries. In 1850, he became a teacher in New Orleans, Louisiana, and there became acquainted with John Lloyd Stephens's books of travel in Yucatan. He travelled in Mexico, under a commission from the French ministry of education, in 1857-1861; in Madagascar in 1863; in South America, particularly Chile and Argentina, in 1875; and in Java and Australia in 1878. In 1880-1883, he again visited the ruined cities of Mexico. Pierre Lorillard IV of New York City contributed to defray the expense of this expedition, and Charnay named a great ruined city near the Guatemalan boundary line "Ville Lorillard" in his honor; the name did not stick and the site is more commonly known as Yaxchilan. Charnay went to Yucatan in 1886" (Wikipedia).

      London:: Sampson Low, Marston, et al,. 1891.. First edition of STOKER'S FIRST NOVEL. An early copy, INSCRIBED JUST TWO DAYS AFTER PUBLICATION to "J. L. Toole / from his affectionate friend / Bram Stoker / 20.11.90." (The copyright date is 1891 but the actual date of publication was November 18, 1890.) English comic actor John Lawrence Toole was a friend of Stoker's and of Henry Irving's. It may seem unlikely now but during his lifetime Stoker was better known as Irving's personal assistant and as the business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned. A testament to the friendship of the men can be found in the dedication to the first volume of Stoker's 1906 biography of Irving, PERSONAL REMINISCENCES OF HENRY IRVING, which reads "To the Memory of John Lawrence Toole Loving Comrade and True Friend of Henry Irving." SNAKE'S PASS is the only novel written by Stoker to be set in his native Ireland and is considered a clear precusor to his later works of horror, such as DRACULA. The story traces the troubled romance of traveler Arthur Severn and local peasant girl, Norah Joyce, against the backdrop of the re-telling of the legend of Saint Patrick's defeat of the King of the Snakes in Ireland. Spine faded, minor cover wear and spine ends a little worn but still a very good copy without any foxing. .

Am 2.I.1888 schreibt Wurzbach an einen namentlich nicht genannten Professor: "Wie Sie lieber Herr Professor zu dem Gedanken [ ] kommen, daß Sie, weil ich schweige einen persönlich ungünstigen Eindruck auf mich gemacht haben müßen, ist mir so wenig klar, wie die Ursache warum Russland a tout prix Krieg führen will. Als Sie damals im Frühling bei uns waren und wir einen heitren Tag erlebten, wartete ich einige Tage auf ein Lebenszeichen von Ihnen und da ein solches nicht kam, schrieb ich einen 6 oder 8 Seiten langen Brief an Sie noch ganz unter dem Eindruck des Wohlbehagens den Sie auf mich und meine bessere Haelfte gemacht [ ]". Brief an einen Herrn Wimmer am 9.III.1888: "Am 5. Jänner 1876 kam in der Komischen Oper in Wien zum 1. Male die 3actige komische Operette ‚Fanfarullo' Text und Musik von Joseph Wirth zur Aufführung. Wissen Sie vielleicht [ ] etwas näheres über diesen Wirth zu sagen`? [ ]". "Sie haben mir wohl seiner Zeit ein Feuilleton von Ludwig Wothe ‚Der Gespenstige Hausherr von Ober St. Veit gesendet, aber über seine künstlerisches Thun [ ] enthält dasselbe keine Zeyle [ ]" (18.XII.1888). - Der in Laibach geborene Schriftsteller trat vor Abschluß seines Jusstudiums in den Militärdienst, der ihn u. a. nach Lemberg führte, wo er 1843 als erster aktiver österreichischer Offizier promovierte. Im Jahr darauf verließ er die Armee, wurde Skriptor an der Lemberger Universitätsbibliothek, 1849 Vorstand der Administrativen Bibliothek des Innenministeriums in Wien und anschließend Ministerialsekretär im Staatsministerium. Nach seiner Erhebung in den Ritterstand 1874 ging er in Pension und lebte fortan als wissenschaftlicher Schriftsteller in Berchtesgaden. Sein zwei Jahre vor seinem Tod abgeschlossenes Lebenswerk ist das "Biographische Lexikon des Kaiserthums Österreich" (60 Bde., 1855-91). Vgl. Kosch IV, 3477 und Öst. Lex. II, 666.

        Grammatica linguae numipu.

      Desmet, ID: Typis Puerorum indorum 8vo (22 cm; 8.5"). [3] ff., iv, 255, [1] pp., fold. tables.. 1891 The title-page of this grammar of the Nez Percé language gives the author as "Presbytero missionario e Soc. Jesu in Montibus Saxosis" ("By a missionary of the Society of Jesus in the Rocky Mountains") and that missionary seems to have been one of the two offered above. The work was printed at the "Typis Puerorum Indorum" ("Indian Boys' Press") of the Sacred Heart Mission, a press that (despite its name) was unlike that at the St. Ignatius Mission that was used for teaching the art of printing; the Desmet press was apparently solely operated by the Jesuits themselves and was not used as a teaching tool. Another difference between these two famous mission presses is that the origin of this one is not known — but it is suspected that it came new from St. Louis. The present copy of the grammar is of unbound, never sewn sheets. If the online catalogue records are to be believed, many of the copies in college and university libraries are incomplete, lacking pp. 130–33. Or are those records a serious case of careless copy-cataloguing? => This copy is complete with all pages and both title-pages. Fine condition is a blue cloth clamshell box.

      Washington, 1891. Folio. Three-quarter morocco and marbled boards. Embossed library stamp on titlepage. Text leaves and some plates with minor edge chipping. Color bright and fresh. Very good. Shortly after the formation of the Smithsonian Institution the great American botanist, Asa Gray, was commissioned to produce a volume in its "Contributions to Knowledge" series on American forest trees. The idea was for a work with three octavo volumes of text and a quarto atlas. In 1850 the Secretary reported, "The illustrations are in the hands of the artists," that artist being Isaac Sprague. Sprague was self-taught, had apprenticed with John James Audubon, and was one of the most important and talented American botanical artists of the 19th century. Work was suspended on the present report while Gray was absent in Europe for two years. After this, funding could not be found, and the work as planned was never issued. In 1891, Secretary S. P. Langley decided to issue the plates which had been prepared, and the twenty-three plates which had been printed were issued with his brief explanatory introduction, after sitting unused for forty years. Most of the lithographic work was done by the firms of Tappan & Bradford, or Joseph Prestele. The very lovely plates depict a variety of tree flowers and leaves, including magnolia, tulip, maple, dogwood, cherry, apple, and plum. A handsome, scarce, and little-known work on American trees.
