        An Object of Pity, or, The Man Haggard: A Romance by Many Competent Hands [Together With] Objects of Pity, or, Self and Company by A Gentleman of Quality

      Amsterdam: Privately Printed. Fine in Fine dust jacket. 1892. Card Covers. 2 volumes, original red card covers with french-fold parchment dust-wrappers printed in gilt, a.e.g., both in separate folding red-cloth chemises, the whole enclosed in a matching morocco-backed slipcase with titles in gilt in six compartments on the spine; pp. 77; 55. With additionally a laid-in typed booklet (5 pp.) entitled 'Key to "An Object of Pity,"' and a single folded typed page delineating the "cast" of authors. The first volume has the Robert Louis Stevenson bookplate affixed to the verso of the cover, signed by his step-daughter Isobel Osbourne Strong and with several handwritten notations by his step-son and frequent collaborator, Lloyd Osbourne. Both volumes about fine, with minor rubbing/soiling to the parchment covers; the chemises have faint rubbing at the covers, and one satin ribbon pull is torn, else fine; the slipcase also has a touch of rubbing at the upper and lower edges, but in all, fine, bright, pleasing; In August 1892 Robert Louis Stevenson was residing in Samoa with his wife and step-children, along with his cousin Graham Balfour (who later became his biographer). In conjunction with visitors from home, the household entertained itself by producing a "joint-stock" novel in which all contributors were to imitate the style of Ouida (Maria Louisa Ramee). They chose as "hero" Mr. Bazett Michael Haggard, the British Land Commissioner, their neighbor and friend. When the book was completed AN OBJECT OF PITY, OR, THE MAN HAGGARD was read aloud to Mr. Haggard, who retaliated to the good-natured pillorying he had received at his friends' hands with OBJECTS OF PITY, OR, SELF AND COMPANY. Privately printed by the Countess of Jersey (one of the participants in the shenanigans) at Sydney, with the false imprint as Amsterdam. Writing in 1902, Edmund Gosse called AN OBJECT OF PITY "the most unattainable of R. L. S.'s productions;" it is speculated that only 35 copies were printed. This copy from the Stevenson family's own library (after his death Isobel Strong sold the family library at auction placed these bookplates in volumes to "assist" their value), and is signed by her and additionally has several notations in the hand of Lloyd Osbourne: On the contents page he identifies who each writer actually is, and he has made notations in several subsequent page margins.

Robert Riviere (1808-1882) was a noted English bookbinder of Huguenot descent. "The excellent workmanship and good taste displayed in his bindings gradually won for them the appreciation of connoisseurs, and he was largely employed by the Duke of Devonshire, Mr. Christie-Miller, Captain Brooke, and other great collectors. He also bound for the queen and the royal family. In the Great Exhibition of 1851 he exhibited several examples of his skill, and he obtained a medal. He was chosen by the council to bind one thousand copies of the large ‘Illustrated Catalogue,’ intended for presentation to ‘all the crowned heads in Europe’ and other distinguished persons. It is said that two thousand skins of the best red morocco, as well as fifteen hundred yards of silk for the linings of the covers, were used by Riviere for this undertaking. He also restored and bound the famous Domesday Book, now preserved in the Record Office, an excellent piece of work. While the binding of Riviere, like that of his equally celebrated fellow-craftsman, Francis Bedford, is deficient in originality, it is in all other respectsâ€?"in the quality of the materials, the forwarding, and in the finish and delicacy of the toolingâ€?"deserving of almost unqualified commendation. Taking into consideration the fact that he was entirely self-taught, his bindings are wonderful specimens of artistic taste, skill, and perseverance." - DNB

Brittle and sunned, overall poor condition

      Letters by Dreyfus referring to his famous legal case rarely become available. In our letter, written two years after he was exonerated, Alfred Dreyfus writes to an unknown recipient about suing the French newspaper, "La Libre Parole," for refusing to correct statements regarding his innocence. Dreyfus references his trial lawyers, Henri Mornard and Edgar Demange as well as Henri Ditte, President of the Tribunal of First Instance of the Seine, a civil court. Dreyfus begins, "I wrote you yesterday to ask when you would return. Meanwhile, I am sending herewith a draft request [not included] for a trial to do with la Libre parole before the Civil Court...I have made up my mind to take the direction that I had thought of two years ago and on which we had decided on. - M. Demange, of course, M. Mornard agree with me. Would you please be kind enough by asking of President [Henri] Ditte an expiation, the closest possible. Please note that it will be necessary to notify within at least three months, about the actes d'interruptifs de prescription. This precaution is absolutely necessary even though we are going before the Civil Court and not before the Court of Assizes...." He signs, "A. Dreyfus." "La Libre Parole," was a virulently anti-Semitic publication founded in 1892. The day following Dreyfus's conviction, "La Libre Parole" headlined a call for Jews to leave France, "Out of France, Jews. France for the French!" Dreyfus was ultimately found innocent in 1906, having been framed by fellow officers of the army. "La Libre Parole" refused to correct false statements regarding the Court of Cessation decision of July 12, 1906, fully exonerating Dreyfus. Between Dreyfus's initial conviction in 1894 and full exoneration in 1906, the officer who actually committed treason by spying for the German government, Major Ferdinand Walsin-Esterhazy, was put on trial twice. Esterhazy's first trial in 1898 resulted in an acquittal. Emile Zola wrote his famous, "J'Accuse" open letter to the French President. Zola's letter, published in the newspaper "L'Aurore," accused the French government of anti-Semitism , judicial errors and lack of serious evidence in the case against Dreyfus. Zola, himself, was accuse of libel and to avoid imprisonment, fled to England. He returned home in June 1899. On June 3, 1899, the Court of Appeals overturned the guilty verdict against Dreyfus, however, despite overwhelming evidence of innocence, a military court again found Dreyfus guilty of the same charge of treason. French president Emile Loubert pardoned Dreyfus on Sept. 19, 1899. Seven years later, in 1906, a military commission finally fully absolved Alfred Dreyfus. "La Libre Parole," ceased publication in June 1924.

        The Art of Golf

      Edinburgh: David Douglas, 1892. _. Half Leather. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Second edition. Complete with all 20 photographic plates and two pages of advertising. Half-leather with marbled boards and endpapers. Spine has five raised bands with gilt rules and lettering. Sound binding with intact hinges. Clean pages and plats. Light wear to cover; some light discoloration along the spine. Per Murdoch 699: "one of the great classic books of golf literature, it includes the first use of photographs to demonstrate the swing. . . . 'the most entertaining book ever written about the foibles of the human golfer. . . . indeed, fine golf literature'" Simpson was the first to advance the idea that golf originated from bored shepherds striking rocks with their crooks, explain how the term 'links' was related to sheep herding, and note that the work 'putt' came from the idea of putting a ball (or rock) into a hole (or scrape) in the ground.

        Hohere Algebra. Manuscript transcription of Konigsberger's lectures

      Heidelberg, 1892. Königsberger, Leo (1837-1921). Höhere Algebra. Akademische Vorträge . . . W: 1891 1892 S. Bound manuscript, written in a neat German hand. Title (in black letter) and 735 numbered pages. N.p. [Heidelberg], ca. 1892. 206 x 164 mm. Half morocco, mottled boards c. 1892, light wear, one corner bumped. A few pencil annotations in the margins. Ownership signature of "Heinrich H[illeg.], stud. math., Heidelberg" on the verso of the front free endpaper.A unique record of the academic work of Königsberger, one of the most famous mathematicians of his time. Königsberger spent most of his career at the University of Heidelberg, where he taught mathematics from 1869 to 1875 and again from 1884 until his retirement in 1914. He contributed to several fields of mathematics, most notably analysis and analytical mechanics. "Königsberger . . . was extremely skillful in treating material from the Riemannian point of view, as can be seen from his textbooks on elliptic functions (1874) and hyperelliptic integrals (1878). In addition he worked intensively on the theory of differential equations. This subject, which grew out of function theory, is associated especially with Lazarus Fuchs, with whom Königsberger was friendly during his youth. Königsberger was the first to treat not merely one differential equation, but an entire system of such equations in complex variables (DSB)."While at Heidelberg Königsberger became close friends with the chemist Robert Bunsen and physicists Hermann Helmholtz and Gustav Kirchhoff; these contacts provided him with the stimulation for his series of works on the differential equations of analytical mechanics. He also published some notable historic works, including an account of his teacher Weierstrass's first lecture on elliptic functions (1917) and a biography of Helmholtz (1902).The present manuscript is a transcription of Königsberger's lectures on higher algebra given at Heidelberg during the academic year 1891-92; it was most likely prepared by the mathematics student who inscribed his name in the volume. The lectures were not published, and we can find no record of any similar manuscript transcriptions in either OCLC or the Karlsruhe database. Dictionary of Scientific Biography.

It is absolutely free from rhetorical ornament, and it does not hesitate to be colloquial in the extreme, but it is admirable in its clearness and directness.....he appends a concluding chapter on the military lessons of the war, which is full of knowledge, wisdom, and sound sense." An important record of inestimable historical importance.

An interesting and attractive book, "an important work on the flies in use during the latter past of the nineteenth century ... exquisite colored plates ..." (Wetzel), which went into several editions. It was written (and compiled from her father's correspondence) by the daughter of Charles F. Orvis, famed American tackle-maker and author of "Fishing With the Fly" (1883). Goodspeed notes that while Mrs. Marbury was "not herself a fisher-woman", she was an expert at making flies, which she tied without the aid of a vise. Much of the book consists of the replies her father received from anglers to whom he had posed questions concerning the sport.
