        An Australian Language as spoken by the Awabakal

      Sydney: Charles Potter, 1892. A little rubbed but a very good copy.. Octavo, folding map and other illustrations; original presentation binding of half morocco. Threlkeld joined the London Missionary Society and in 1816 sailed with his family to the South Seas, working with John Williams at Raiatea. In 1824 he arrived in Sydney, where his proposal to establish an Aboriginal mission was supported by Governor Brisbane. The mission was established the following year at Reid's Mistake on Lake Macquarie with a 10,000-acre parcel of land. The excessive expenditure of the mission incurred the wrath of Rev. Samuel Marsden who successfully sought Threlkeld's dismissal and the abandonment of the mission in 1828.Threlkeld spent the following ten years as a government-paid missionary living and working with the local tribe of Lake Macquarie. He became fluent in the local dialect, under the tutelage of Biraban, the local elder whose portrait appears here as a frontispiece, and acted as interpreter for Aborigines on trial in Sydney. In the Sydney Gazette of 1826 Threlkeld's work on the Aboriginal language was highly praised; this published linguistic study of the dialect, as well as his other reports, are regarded as landmarks in Aboriginal studies.This is the much extended edition, re-arranged by the anthropologist, John Fraser. It includes the Awabakal-English Lexicon with separate title page.

        The Story of a Puppet, or The Adventures of Pinocchio

      New York: Cassell Publishing Co, 1892. First American edition. Near Fine. Published simultaneously with the British Unwin edition, using the same sheets, but with a canceled title page. Part of the Children's Library Series. Original blue floral-decorated white cloth, recased with a slight loss to the cloth at the base of the spine; internally in excellent condition. Presenting Near Fine overall. Only one other copy of this Cassell imprint is currently available (the VG+ Bradley Martin copy for $9500) and only one appears in the recent auction record, Christies 2005; the American issue is decidedly scarce. Originally appearing in an Italian children's magazine in 1881, "La Storia di un Burattino" was more than an amusing, yet dark, tale for Italian children. Written by the political activist, Carlo Collodi, the story of Pinocchio was meant to aide in the reunification of Italy after the Napoleonic Wars had splintered the Italian states and devastated any sense of national identity. With the struggle to rebuild the Italian nation at hand, Collodi, worked to translate and create educational children's literature to create a vision of unification for the people. His story of Pinocchio was quite unlike the sanitized Disney version that most children grew up watching. The original story depicts an unsympathetic "rogue" in the carpenter, Geppetto, who defied his father's wishes, eschewed education, and fell easily into temptation by the fox and the cat. And, spoiler alert, it ended with Pinocchio's death at the hand of his tempters, providing a warning to those children who were not obedient to their parents or striving towards good moral behavior. When the stories were compiled and published as a book in 1883, titled: "Le avventure di Pinocchio," they were given a more upbeat ending, where Pinocchio realizes his wrongdoings, corrects his behavior, and ultimately transforms into a real boy. Due to the story's success in Italy, Mary Alice Murray translated this first English edition of the story in 1892. "Almost nothing else in children's literature equals Pinocchio for wildness of invention" (Humphrey Carpenter & Mari Prichard: The Oxford Companion to Children's Literature). Near Fine.

BAL 5750 This copy of With Trumpet and Drum includes Field's autograph copy of his poem "At the Door," which is printed in this collection on pages 74-75. Notably, the autograph poem is dated "Chicago, 1884," which precedes the publication of this volume by nearly a decade. Interestingly, despite the amount of time between them, the 1884 autograph edition and the 1892 print edition of "At the Door" only slightly in punctuation, with the text of the verse being entirely the same. With Trumpets and Drum is Field's first collection of children's poems. Specifically, it includes "The Sugar Plum Tree," "Wynken, Blynken and Nod," "Little Boy Blue," and "The Bell-Flower Tree," among others.

        THE ANACONDA EXTENSION GOLD MINING COMPANY, 1892

      None listed, Not listed 1892 - Original mining stock certificate: #139; issued August 18, 1892 to C. S. Sauerland, and signed by H. A. W. Tabor, as president of The Anaconda Extension Gold MIning Company of Cripple Creek, Colorado. Certificate is cancelled; both pen and cut. H. A. W. Tabor was best known as being the "Silver King" of Leadville, Lake County, Colorado. This was in the early 1880s. Tabor was so well-known at this time that he ran for governor of the State of Colorado, although he was not elected. Tabor used his silver fortune to building an Opera House in Leadville, a major downtown building in Denver, and other buildings. He also re-invested a good portion of his wealth in other mining ventures, many of which failed. After wealth began pouring into his coffers, Tabor divorced his first wife, Augusta, and married "Baby Doe" McCourt -- later to be known as Baby Doe Tabor. Baby Doe remained with Horace even when his fortunes started to subside. Tabor died poor in 1899. Although The Anaconda Gold Mining Company stock certificate was not issued on a Leadville property, the fact that Tabor invested in gold was a sign that he knew he had find other, more profitable mining ventures, especially after 1893 (Congressional Act to Demonetization of Silver). Cut-cancels are conserved on back of certificate. Only lightly pen-cancelled. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [cover title] Left by the Indians. Story of my life.

      [copyright page: Mt. Vernon, IA: Hawk-eye Steam Print Square 24mo (13 cm; 5"). Front wrapper, [2] ff., 40 pp., port. leaf, blank leaf.. 1892] Howes tells us that “This is the only account by a survivor of the extreme hardships suffered by the [1860] Utter-Myers Overland Train,” and Smith adds that "Among overland disasters, [this tragedy was] equaled in horror only by that of the Donner party; cannibalism was resorted to in both cases."Fuller's account of the party of 44 that left Wisconsin in May 1860 heading for Oregon’s Willamette Valley is unstinting in its telling of attacks by a large party of Shoshone and Bannock along the Snake River, the rapine of the wolves afterwards, and the failure of those yet living to find food except the bodies of dead members of the party. Only 16 survived."It is at the request of many friends I consent to publish the story of my life. They have heard enough of what I have suffered by the Indians, to make them anxious to hear or rest the rest. To repeat the whole story to every individual that wants to hear it is an impossibility — hence I write that they may read for themselves" (preface). Yes, her autobiography does continue her life and travels after the massacre, but only to 1879. She died in either 1923 or 1924.There are two pages of portraits of Fuller's family as they looked in 1860: her mother, father, a baby, a brother and sister, and herself at 14 years. There is an additional full-page portrait of Fuller as she looked in 1892.Life-time published accounts by pioneer women in the Pacific Northwest are uncommon. Those detailing massacres and cannibalism even fewer. Publisher's green wrapper, wire stitched, as issued; lightly soiled. Small brown stain in foremargin of three final leaves. => A rather nice copy of a delicate publication.

        Varones ilustres de la Compania de Jesus. Segunda edicion.

      Bilbao, 1887-1892. - 9 volumes in-4. Demi chagrin, dos à nerfs orné (Reliure de l'époque). Seconde édition très rare de cet ouvrage important, un des plus estimés du jésuite espagnol d'Eusebio de Nieremberg (1595-1658). La première édition parue sur près d'un siècle, entre 1643 et 1736, est pratiquement introuvable aujourd'hui. Ces 9 volumes retraçant la vie des jésuites les plus éminents dans les missions des quatre partries du monde, sont de la première importance pour l'histoire de l'Amérique (Etats-Unis, Brésil, Canada, Mexique, Perou, etc.), du Japon, de la Chine, de l'Afrique, etc., etc. Sabin dit concernant la première édition: "This work having been published at different periods during the space almost a century, complete sets are excessively rare. The interest of the work is not inferior to its rarity as it contains accounts of many early voyages to the Indies not elsewhere to be fond" . Bon exemplaire. Palau, 191024-9.

Note: If you are interested in Kaempfer books please contact us as we have them in stock. * Extracted from Wikipedia, corrected & edited by us: Ogawa Kazumasa [1860-1929], first name known as Kazuma or Isshin, was a Japanese photographer, printer and publisher who pioneered in photomechanical printing and photography in the Meiji era Japan. * WHO WAS THE PHOTOGRAPHER OGAWA: . OGAWA Kazumasa was born in Saitama prefecture, in the Matsudaira Samurai clan. He started studying English and photography at the age of 15 under Yoshiwara Hideo, then in 1880 he moved to Tokyo in order to further hone his English language skills. One year later, Kazumasa was hired as an interpreter in the Yokohama Police Department, while learning photography from the celebrated Shimoka Renjo in Yokohama. . In 1882, he moved to Boston where he took courses in portrait photography and dry plate process. He also studied collotype printing in Albert Type Company. . Upon his return to Japan in 1884, he opened a photographic studio in Tokyo's Iidabashi, in Kojimachi, which was the first studio of this kind in Tokyo. Four years later, he established the Tsukiji Kampan Seizo Kaisha [Tsukiji dry plate manufacturing company], which manufactured dry plates for use by photographers. In 1889, he set up Japan's first collotype business, the Ogawa Shashin Seihan jo, also referred to as the K. Ogawa printing factory. In the same year, Kazumasa worked as an editor for Shashin Shimpo [The Photography Journal], the only photographic journal available at the time which he printed using the collotype printing process. He also printed KOKKA journal by the same method. . Ogawa Kazumasa was a founding member of the Japan Photographic Association [Nihon Shashin Kai], which gathered photography amateurs from all around Japan. In 1891 he was responsible for taking 100 pictures of Tokyo's most attractive geisha, to commemorate the opening of the Ryounkaku. . The contribution by Ogawa to Japanese photography is by and large the most important and fascinating of any Japanese photographer. *** REFERENCES: The following are some useful bibliographies to consult for more information on this album and Japanese early photography in general: * BENNETT, Terry.

        Oriental scene.

      No place, 1892. - Watercolour on paper, 290 x 460 mm, matted (600 x 398 mm). Beautiful orientalist watercolor, inscribed by the artist "à Monsieur Coullon, souvenir affectueux". Lacoste, a genre painter equally adept at landscapes and architecture, was a student of Rouillet, Cambon, and Cogniet. He exhibited at the Salon from 1839 to 1907, also drawing costumes for the various Parisian scenes, including for the Opéra from 1876 to 1885. His series of watercolours painted for Verdi's "Aida" in 1880 is remarkable; a design for "Ramses" is now kept at the Getty Museum. The present orientalist scene is typical of its age but distinguished by its large format and masterly quality. It shows a Middle Eastern oasis with Moorish-type buildings near a palm grove reflected in a waterhole, surrounded by eight characters in local costumes going about their lives: a man is perched on his camel; two men are wearing red hats; two women, possibly slaves, carry jugs on their heads. In the foreground, cargo unloaded from a camel suggests a Bedouin desert stopover. - Slight foxing and waterstaining to matte, not concerning the painting.

        Die traumatischen Neurosen nach den in der Nervenklinik der Charité in der 8 Jahren 1883-1891 gesammelten Beobachtungen. Zweite verbesserte und erweiterte Auflage

      1892 - VIII-[2]-253 pages Berlin, August Hirschwald, 1892, in-8, VIII-[2]-253 pages, demi-percaline brune à la bradel, dos lisse orné d'un petit fleuron, pièce de titre, couvertures conservées (reliure moderne), Seconde édition, très augmentée, de cet ouvrage qui a paru pour la première fois en 1888. Oppenheim est le premier à parler de "névrose traumatique" pour caractériser des cas de troubles psychopathologiques survenus chez des victimes d'accident. Son diagnostic considère un ensemble de symptômes; souvenir obsédant de l’accident, troubles du sommeil, cauchemars de reviviscence, phobies électives et labilité émotionnelle. Son approche, d’inspiration neurologique, se concentre sur l'idée d'une pathologie entièrement engendrée par l’accident et s'oppose en cela à la théorie l'hystéro-traumatisme d'origine héréditaire défendue par Charcot. Cachet ex-libris du Dr Carrier de Lyon. Traduction du titre en français, manuscrite en première de couverture. Bon exemplaire. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      [Various locations, 1892. Oblong octavo. Original brown morocco, cover gilt, sympathetically rebacked, a.e.g. Corners heavily worn, covers rubbed. Minor soiling and wear to mounts, but images clean. Very good. An interesting album of photographs compiled by one photographer - presumably an amateur - which includes scenes in Missouri, Illinois, and Florida. The images, which start with scenes of street illumination in St. Louis, include views of significant architectural monuments and parkland in major cities, steamers coaling and loading grain on the Illinois River, and other vernacular subjects such as farms, gardens, rail yards, and people. The album jumps around between states, showing areas around St. Louis, Kansas City, Allendale, and St. Joseph in Missouri; Peoria, Pullman, and Patoka in Illinois; two photographs in Patriot, Indiana, located just south of Cincinnati on the Kentucky border; and views in Palatka, Jacksonville, Tampa, and St. Augustine in Florida. A series of photographs centered on the McElaine farm near Allendale includes studies of horses, workers, "Moving an Old Frame House," "House Movers," "Temporary Quarters," and a portrait of a workman clinging to a pole in the air entitled "Chased by a Bull."

        King Poppy

      Longmans 1892 - Presentation copy of King Poppy, with a letter from the first Earl's widow laid in on front flyleaf, and the letter's original envelope laid in on the front pastedown. The book itself is in very good condition, with foxing to front & rear endpapers but light scattered foxing elsewhere. A blank sheet immediately before the frontespiece appears to have been removed. The outer cover is very good, some marking to the spine as illustrated but otherwise signs of handling consistent with age; top edge of text block gilded. Supplied in loose acetate protective cover. The dedication reads: To W. P. Westell with kind regards and appreciation from the widow of the author Edith Lytton June 11. 1916. This is presumably W. Percival Westell, author of My Life as a Naturalist, which was published by Cecil, Palmer and Hayward in London in 1918, to which Lord Lytton had contributed the Introduction (written years earlier prior to his death in 1891). The letter pasted into King Poppy is a thank you by Lady Lytton to Westell for a copy of My Life as a Naturalist, and reads as follows: June 20 Evening My dear Mr. Westell I was most grateful for your letter of June 15. [We] have waited to thank you for it, until I learned that your lovely book had reached me. This morning it arrived and from a rapid glance this evening I can see that it is perfect - for every season of the year - then the sea treasures described - and the stars - of the names of which I always long to be reminded - are so well mapped out. I therefore look forward to many quiet readings and imaginary rambles, for alas I can't walk so far as I used to do. I am also very pleased by the kind inscription & personal touch marked by my Christian name introduced. So pray accept my sincere thanks and believe how much I shall appreciate your thoughts and descriptions in this fascinating volume. I need hardly say that Conny & Nurse had the first look through the book, & they were much excited. Believe me ever sincerely yrs Edith Lytton Language: eng [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Mapa De Los Ferro Carriles De La Repblica Argentina...

      Buenos Aires, Direccin de Ferro Carriles Nacionales, 1892. Printed color topographical map, four parts of eighteen sections each, backed with linen. Each part consists of a single horizontal fold and nine vertical folds and isattached to its covers at the lower left section. Each section measures 8.25 x 12.25 inches. Each unfolded part of 18 sections measures 24.5 inches high by 74.5 inches wide, the entire map unfolds to eight feet two inches in height and six feet two inches wide. Title continues: Y De Los Paises Limtrofes. Construido segun los datos instrucciones suministrados por el Presidente de la Direccion Dor Don Luis Faraoz por el Ingeniero Gegrafo Dor Jos Chavanne. The four parts are bound in embossed green cloth covers printed in gold. Despite a bit of old worming and minor stains, the map is handsome and brilliant. Scale: 1: 1,000,000. Oval stamp of the DFCN near the cartouche. The map encompasses approximately 41 South latitude to approx. 20 S. latitude, and approx. 53 West longitude to a little beyond 73 W. latitude. This includes Chile along its entire western border, in some cases to the Pacific, and parts of Bolivia, Paraguay, and Uruguay. Railroad lines are shown as far south as Baha Nueva in Chubut on the east coast and a bit inland from Valdivia (Chile) in the west; in the north Asuncin is the farthest inland reach, and both completed and projected sections of the Transandine (Valparaiso toBuenos Aires) line are shown (the last tunnel was completed in 1909). Development ofrailways in Argentina dates from 1857 and was mostly supported by private companies largely controlled in England, about 15% being owned and operated by the government. Produced following an investment crisis in 1890, this map may have been intended toencourage support of an already well developed transportation system carrying thepastoral and agricultural products of Argentina?s steadily developing export trade, which contributed greatly to maintaining the country?s economic stability. Besides showing railways, the large scale on which this map was produced allows acomprehensive view of the country and its physical peculiarities. Dry rivers, mountain peaks, saline lakes, central plateaus, the Gran Chaco, countless rivers? allareshown with the detail and elevations one expects from railroad survey expeditions. Stock#NS0156.
