Dr Carl Peters; H. W. Dulcken (trans)
London: Ward, Lock and Co, 1891. The first English edition of the work. First published in German earlier the same year. Collated compete with thirty two full page monochrome plates, sixty five vignette illustrations and the extremely scarce folding coloured map representing the progress of the expedition inserted into the pocket at the rear of the wrap. Translated from the German by noted translator and children's writer Henry William Dulcken. Dulcken is best known for his translations of the stories by Hans Christian Andersen with this work being an unusual example of his translation, with most of his work being that of German children's literature. With the personal bookplate of George Frederick Harp to the front pastedown. Dr Carl Peters was a German colonial ruler, explorer, politician and author who was a major promoter of the establishment of the German colony of East Africa. Peters is regarded as an extremely controversial figure owing to his beliefs in Social Darwinism and Volkisch philosophy which highly impacted his treatment regarding the indigenous population. New Light on Dark Africa describes Peter's involvement in the German Emin Pasha Expedition which claimed to be for the sole purpose of aiding Emin Pasha to maintain his position as governor of the Egyptian province of Equatoria on the Nile. However, it was later understood that the expedition also had a secondary purpose of territorial annexation. The expedition came to later be recognised for its ambition of crossing 'Darkest Africa' from which this work gets its title. The work acts a highly influential … [Click Below for Full Description]

Small quarto, (7 x 8-1/2"), green cloth spine, decorative cloth boards, 158pp, 1 of 1000 printed copies. Masterfully illustrated by Charles Ricketts w/cover, title page, endpaper designs and textual ornaments. Other illustrator, Rickett's housemate and partner in the Vale Press, Charles Shannon with 4 plates. Plates were printed in Paris by an "improved" process, and after the book was finished and bound, it was discovered that a dusty deposit had formed on each plate, probably due to a chemical impurity in the printer's ink or in the chalky paper used. Due to damage to the printing plates in all copies, (1000), the plates appear faded, faint and almost obliterated (see Muir: Victorian Illustrated Books, p191). This book was purchased in London, England in the early 1980s by seller and has remained in seller's possession since the purchase. External Condition: Lettering on spine is faded. Tips of boards are bumped. Top and bottom of spine are bumped and exhibit some fraying. Front and back edges of spine show wear and fraying. Inner hinges appear tight.

Kipling - City of Dreadful Night - First Edition - 1891 Kipling - City of Dreadful Night - First Edition - 1891 Click images to enlarge Description Kipling - City of Dreadful Night - First Edition - 1891 The City of Dreadful Night and Other Places + Wee Willie Winkie + In Black and White (Three titles bound as one). By Rudyard Kipling. A. H. Wheeler & Company: Allahabad, India. All three titles were published as part of the Indian Railway Library and later bound together in a buckram volume with their original wrappers and advertisements. (See both Livingston and Ahearn for more information.) City of Dreadful Night (1891) is the first published edition with "Printed at the 'Pioneer' Press, Allahabad." at the bottom of p 108; Kipling forced the destruction of an unauthorized earlier edition and was partially successful in supressing this edition as well. Wee Willie Winkie (1889) is identified as the "Second Edition." In Black and White (1890) is identified as the "Third Edition." Wrappers and pages are clean and in nice shape with some light toning; the rear wrapper of City is missing. There are old pencilled notes about the editions by a former bookselle in the forematter.

Paris, E. Plon, Nourrit et Cie, 1891 (vol.1), 1895 (vol.2 & 3). 3 volumes in-8, demi-chagrin aubergine, dos à 5 nerfs plats ornés de filets à froid, titres dorés, tranches mouchetées (reliure uniforme de l'époque), xv, 582 p., (1) f. ; (4), 556 p., portrait frontispice gravé et (4), 607 p. Edition originale, rare ensemble complet des trois volumes publiés entre 1891 et 1895, illustrée d’un portrait de Charcot, auteur de la préface, et de nombreuses figures. Interne de Charcot, puis son chef de clinique à La Salpetrière, Gilles de la Tourette livre dans cet ouvrage une synthèse complète de la doctrine de son maître, une récapitulation historique et critique de ce qui a été écrit sur l'hystérie et une réfutation méthodique des objections de ses adversaires. Conformément à l’approche de Charcot, il défend une approche organique et physiologique de l’hystérie qui peut atteindre les femmes comme les hommes, approche qui s'oppose à celle de ses rivaux de Nancy pour lesquels l'étiologie de la maladie est à rechercher dans le psychisme. C'est avec le plus célèbre des élèves de Charcot, Sigmund Freud, que s'opérera le changement sémiotique décisif dans l’étude de l’origine de l’hystérie par l’élaboration de la théorie de l'inconscient. Cf. Jacques Lacan, Séminaire ‘Les formations de l'inconscient’, 1957-1958 (passim). (Ellenberger, ‘Découverte de l’inconscient’, p.628. Heirs of Hippocrates, n°2188. P. Morel, ‘Dict.

Chile]
1891. Overall very good, but varies from fair to fine, most somewhat browned, larger sheets with edge tears, a few sheets with a few letters missing, one image torn through, a few with faint print, a few with ragged edges.. [303] pp. 5.5 x 7.5 inches to 21 x 29 inches. Despite becoming one third larger in 1883 and much richer with its victory over Peru and Bolivia, Chile could not use its wealth and lavish public spending to insure against civil unrest. A combination of secular and religious battles and conservative versus liberal thinking came to a head in 1891, when Manuel Balmaceda, who had succeeded Santa Maria as president in 1886, refused to share power and patronage with both the opposition and members of his own party, who became divided over Balmaceda's attempt to select his successor. When the Chilean Congress refused to approve Balmaceda's budget for 1891 unless he formed a cabinet with their approval, he unilaterally declared he would use the prior year's budget for 1891. The congressionalists rebelled, backed by the powerful Chilean navy, land owners, and large foreign enterprises, established a government in the port of Iquique, and with better leadership and easy access to capital, defeated the loyalist army at Placilla and Concon. Balmaceda fled to the Argentine embassy for safety. The day after his term officially expired, he committed suicide. This collection contains rare "street" publications covering the entire period of the revolution, from the day the first shot was fired, on 16 January 1891 until after Balmaceda's suicide, though the bulk concern … [Click Below for Full Description]

The work, compiled by Lyster's sister, contains a memoir, letters from his numerous commissions in China, of condolence to the family from Gordon and others, and a laudatory "Memorandum Respecting the Services of the Late Lieutenant Lyster, Royal Engineers", provided by Gordon. Lyster first arrived in China in August, 1862, and was active both in a military role during the Taiping Rebellion, and in surveying the countryside around Shanghai, which was previously undocumented by the British. His health declined in 1865, and he was sent home by the Medical Board in August, dying on the journey back to Ireland. Together the correspondence provides a fascinating insight into the day-to-day activities organising the "Ever Victorious Army", including visits to Nankin, "the great rebel stronghold", and their reception by the Imperial General. This work is uncommon, with only six traced institutionally on Copac. [Attributes: First Edition]
