Mon sentiment est qu'on ne peut en avoir qu'une. Républicain on ne peut saluer qu'avec respect la mémoire de ce milicien de la liberté [...] Quant à Crispi sur lequel vous m'interrogez aussi c'est l'antipode de Garibaldi [...] Il n'a pas fait la triple alliance, ce renouvellement de la sainte alliance, cette croisade des rois contre les peuples: elle était faite par d' autres que lui lorsqu'il est arrivé au pouvoir.

        [TWENTY-EIGHT MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENTS AND PRINTED FORMS REPORTING THE DEATHS AND ILLNESSES OF CURRENT AND FORMER SLAVES IN 19th CENTURY CUBA]

      Cuba, 1891. [28] leaves, various sizes. Eighteen manuscript leaves and ten printed forms completed in manuscript. Some browning and chipping, with occasional worming and paper loss, sometimes affecting text. Several documents with contemporary Cuban institutional ink stamps. Good plus. A collection of twenty-eight death reports and other notices for Cuban slaves and freedmen from the second half of the 19th century. The vast majority of the notices report a death or burial, giving a brief description of the slave or other Cuban person of color, usually including skin tone, country or region of origin, owners or relations if known, cause of death (which include illnesses such as typhoid and epilepsy), and give the date. Most documents are accomplished entirely in manuscript, however there is a significant portion of the group that consist of completed printed forms, both written in quite legible hands. The printed forms note the transfer of the bodies to the cemetery. Several other notices, such as that of a baptism, are also included. While the documents span nearly half of the 19th century, the preponderance date from the 1860s and 1870s. An interesting collection that sheds light on the Cuban bureaucracy surrounding slavery, which continued on the island until 1888.

        Lehrbuch des Pandektenrechts, 7. Aufl., 3 Bände, Prachtausgabe.

      Frankfurt a. M., Literarische Anstalt Rütten & Loening, 1891. Siebente durchgesehene und vermehrte Auflage. XVI, 763; X, 846; VII, 487 S. Vollständiges Werk in 3 Bänden. Schwarze Original-Halblederbände auf fünf Zierbünden mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln auf bordeauxroten Rückenschildern sowie goldgeprägter Ornamentik; Buchdeckel und Vorsätze mit mehrfarbigen Bezügen im Pfauen-Design; Deckel mit großen Lederecken; dreiseitiger Pfauenschnitt; dreifarbiges Lesebändchen. Erstmals 1861 erschienenes Hauptwerk des Rechtswissenschaftlers Bernhard Windscheid (1817 - 1892), von dem ein maßgeblicher Einfluß auf den im Jahre 1888 vorgelegten 1. Entwurf eines Bürgerlichen Gesetzbuches (BGB) ausging. Winscheid gehörte als einer von zwei Professoren - neben neun Richtern und Ministerialbeamten - der Kommission an, die mit der Erarbeitung dieses Entwurfes beauftragt worden war. Das BGB in seiner endgültigen Fassung wurde 1896 verabschiedet und trat zum 1. Januar 1900 in Kraft. Nicht zuletzt aufgrund seiner führenden Rolle beim Zustandekommen dieses Gesetzes kann Windscheid als einer der führenden Zivilrechtsexperten seiner Zeit gelten. Nach Studium in Berlin und Bonn sowie wissenschaftlichen Stationen in Basel, Greifswald, München und Heidelberg - hier als Nachfolger des Pandektenexperten Karl Philipp Adolph von Vangerow (1808 - 1870), wechselte Windscheid im Herbst 1874 an die Universität Leipzig, wo er 1880 zum Ordinarius der juristischen Fakultät berufen wurde und bis zu seinem Lebensende sein wissenschaftliches Werk fortführte. Gliederung: Erstes Buch: Von dem Rechte überhaupt. Zweites Buch: Von den rechten überhaupt. Drittes Buch: Das Sachenrecht. Viertes Buch: Das Recht der Forderungen. Fünftes Buch: Das Familienrecht. Sechstes Buch: Das Erbrecht. Die sehr schön gestalteten Bände in sehr gutem Zustand; Buchrücken frisch und ohne Spuren, allenfalls die glatten Deckelbezüge, wie zumeist, stellenweise leicht berieben; Titelblätter kleinem Namensaufdruck und Siegelstempel; Seiten sauber und fleckenfrei. In toto sehr schönes Exemplar dieser seltenen, aufwendig gestalteten Prachtausgabe des einschlägigen Werkes.

        Philips' Handy-Volume Atlas of London

      London: George Philip & Son, 1891. Containing a large scale street plan in 55 sections, on a scale of three inches to the mile of London and suburbs including the whole of the County of London. With special maps showing the Railways of London, the Geology of the London district, The Thames from Kew to Oxford, Richmond and neighbourhood, Epping Forest; and the plans of St.Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, the Zoological and Kew Gardens, Windsor Park and Oxford. Also a directory of Public Buildings, Museums and Art Galleries, Theatres and other places of amusement, Clubs, Hospitals etc. together with a complete index of 11500 streets, squares, parks, railway stations etc. The construction of this atlas is interesting in so far as the sections were never sown but glued only to the mull which also underlays the pastedowns. All the sections have now become cleanly detached which actually helps the ease of use because each double page spread can be laid flat to view. For the moment we intend to leave it this way but will reinstate should a buyer so desire. This atlas is an amazing reference source and extremely scarce.. Limp Cloth. Very Good. 180x110mm.
