Vertically grained maroon cloth, covers ruled in blind, spine stamped gilt, fore-edge untrimmed. Manuscript ex-libris in elegant script to title page.

Cushing G81. Osler 1598. Waller 19650. The value of the fine ridges in the epidermis of the palmar surfaces of the fingers as a means of identification was known to the Chinese and others long before Galton proposed their use for such purposes. In the 1860s, Sir William James Herschel published a letter in the journal Nature, describing his method for identifying criminals in India by their fingerprints. Twenty years later, Henry Faulds, a Scottish surgeon working in Tokyo, published a letter, also in Nature, proposing a method to record fingerprints with printing ink. But it was Galton whose detailed studies of fingerprints led to the adoption of a classification that is still the basis for the system used throughout the world today. Galton saw Herschel's letter, and over the next five years developed his own statistical model of fingerprint analysis and identification, classifying fingerprint patterns into eight broad categories and devising a classification system. He had calculated that the chance of a false positive (two different individuals having the same fingerprints) was about 1 in 64 billion. N. B.

        THE SILVER DOMINO; OR SIDE WHISPERS AND LITERARY

      London: Lamley and Co., Exhibition Road, 1892.. Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii [1-3] 4-365 [366: blank] [367: printer's imprint] [368: blank], original pictorial black cloth, all panels stamped in silver, white endpaper with floral pattern printed in gray. First edition, first printing. An anonymously published, ill-advised, savage attack on her critics, publishers, and the Victorian literary establishment which alienated almost all her professional contacts. Corelli, who believed in female superiority and her own genius, "enjoyed a period of great literary success from the publication of her first novel in 1886 until World War I. Corelli's novels sold more copies than the combined sales of popular contemporaries, including Arthur Conan Doyle, H. G. Wells, and Rudyard Kipling, although critics often derided her work as 'the favorite of the common multitude.' ... Mackay began her career as a musician, adopting the name Marie Corelli for her billing. Eventually she turned to writing and published her first novel, A ROMANCE OF TWO WORLDS, in 1886. In her time, she was the most widely read author of fiction. Her works were collected by Winston Churchill, Randolph Churchill, and members of the British Royal Family, among others. Mackay, who famously had little time for the press, faced criticism from the literary elite for her overly melodramatic writing. In THE SPECTATOR, Grant Allen called her 'a woman of deplorable talent who imagined that she was a genius, and was accepted as a genius by a public to whose commonplace sentimentalities and prejudices she gave a glamorous setting.' James Agate represented her as combining 'the imagination of a Poe with the style of an Ouida and the mentality of a nursemaid.'" - Wikipedia. "A key book in her career ..." - Wolff 1478. Her parodies include "Byron Loquitur," an account of the Silver Domino's encounter with the ghost of Lord Byron. A bright, very good or better copy. A lovely copy. The first printing is rare.

        Early Edith Wharton ALS from Manhattan about the ... "kind invitation to the Students' Association of Miss Hersey's School"

      New York, NY, April 22 (c. 1892-1899). 4.375" x 6.875. "Cream bifold mourning stationery with black borders, on "884 Park Avenue" letterhead. Free flowing script inscribed in black ink and signed "Edith Wharton" at top of second page. Dated "April 22nd" and written from Edith Wharton's Manhattan townhouse sometime between 1892 and 1899. Addressed to one "Miss Howard", likely a faculty member or student enrolled at Miss Hersey's School for Girls located in Boston, MA. In extremely fine condition, each page measuring 4.375" x 6.875". Expected central fold marks do not detract from bright condition of paper and ink.Letter content in its entirety is below:"April 22nd884 Park Avenue.My dear Miss Howard,I am in receipt of the kind invitation to the Students' Association of Miss Hersey's School to be present at their annual luncheon on May 27th, and I am sorry that the impossibility of being in Boston at that time obliges me to decline. Will you kindly express my regrets to the Association, & believe me, with many thanks,Sincerely Yours,Edith Wharton"Edith Wharton (1862-1937) is celebrated for the quality and quantity of her written works. Her first book was not published until age forty, yet Wharton produced an astonishing volume of poetry, short stories, novels, plays, travel stories, ghost stories, essays, and non-fiction. Many of these works provide enduring commentary on American life in the Gilded Age. Wharton traveled extensively through Europe with her parents during her childhood and grew up in elite social circles. She personally benefited from privileges of wealth and social status, but ideologically despised the societal mechanisms that preserved them, and the lengths that were taken to secure them. This criticism of the emerging American class of nouveaux riches appears frequently in her work. Several factors must be considered to determine the year that this letter was written. The stationery letterhead indicates that Wharton wrote the letter sometime after November 1891, when she and her husband Teddy Wharton (1850-1928) finalized the purchase of their Manhattan townhouse. The letter refers to "Miss Hersey's School", which was a secondary school for girls operated between 1877 and 1899. Using these two parameters, we can safely assume that Wharton penned this letter sometime between spring 1892 and 1899. It is unknown for whom Wharton was mourning, although this would certainly narrow down our choice of years. During this period, Wharton attempted to publish some of her short stories, travel narratives, and poetry; her more famous novels were published during the next twenty years. Maine-born Heloise E. Hersey graduated from Vassar College in 1876, about ten years after the prestigious women's college was established in Poughkeepsie, NY. Hersey operated the Boston school mentioned in this letter and taught Anglo-Saxon and rhetoric at Smith College in Northampton, MA. Wharton's literary reputation was beginning to be established in the 1890s, perhaps explaining her invitation to an annual school luncheon.An eloquent letter of refusal, couched in delicate and socially acceptable language, in very fine condition."

        The Kiss - Sir Lawrence (Lourens) Alma-Tadema, 1892.

      ?The Kiss?, heliogravure uitgegeven door Stephen T. Gooden in 1892 naar het schilderij (Opus CCCXII) van Sir Lawrence (Lourens) Alma-Tadema. Met potlood gesigneerd door Alma-Tadema. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 38 x 51,7 cm. In originele lijst.The Kiss geeft een vertrouwd tafereel weer van badende Romeinse vrouwen. Maar in tegenstelling tot Alma-Tadema?s gebruikelijk badsc?nes in nauwkeurig weergegeven klassieke gebouwen, zijn de vrouwen op dit schilderij voor hun plezier aan het zwemmen in zee.Al verklaarde de kunstenaar dat de achtergrond was gemodelleerd naar een meer in Beieren waar hij was geweest, roepen de heldere zee en het marmer de milde Mediterrane wereld op van een reeks schilderijen waarop Romeinse aristocraten zich vermaken aan de baai van Napels.In The Kiss heeft Alma-Tadema op ingenieuze wijze het sentimentele met het gewaagde gecombineerd. De centrale groep toont een jonge vrouw die een kind een afscheidskus geeft voordat ze zich bij de zwemmers voegt. Haar identiteit is onduidelijk, evenals de vrouw op de achtergrond, maar de compositie doet denken aan Victoriaanse genretaferelen van kinderen met hun moeders en gouvernantes. In contrast met deze groep kijkt een naakte baadster, uiterst links op de voorstelling, de toeschouwer rechtstreeks aan. De kunstenaar gunt de toeschouwer een verboden blik op dit naakt als door een sleutelgat. Zoals in meer van Alma-Tadema?s latere schilderijen is ook hier de compositie niet meer overladen met kunstvoorwerpen: getoond worden alleen de vertrouwde bronzen driepoot en een reli?f van een satyr die op een panfluit speelt onder een boom. De satyr is een verrassende, zij het discrete indringer in een verder geheel vrouwelijke omgeving. Een erotische connotatie in een schijnbaar onschuldig tafereel.Prijs: ?3.150,- (incl. lijst).

        The Catholicos of the East and his People. Being Impression of Five Years' Work in the Archbishop of Canterbury's Assyrian Mission; an Account of the Religious and Secular Life and Opinions of the Eastern Syrian Christians of Kurdistan and Northern Persia (known also as Nestorians).

      London: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1892 - Octavo. Original green cloth, spine and front board lettered and decorated in gilt and black, brown coated endpapers. Joints and extremities rubbed, spine darkened, very faint soiling overall, small bump to fore edge of both boards, fore edge spotted, internally clean. A very good copy. Folding map frontispiece, wood engravings to the text. First and only edition of this important account of the Church of the East, uncommon in the original cloth. In 1886 Maclean (1858–1943) travelled to Urmia in Iranian Azerbaijan as the first head of Archbishop Benson's mission to the Assyrian Christians, "which had as its purpose not conversion, which its statutes forbade, but the strengthening of faith and religious practice" (ODNB). Despite opposition from Persian authorities, Maclean oversaw the establishment of a Syriac press and numerous schools for clergy and laypeople. He returned to his former parish at Portree, Skye, in 1891, co-authoring the present account and also writing an important grammar of Syriac (1895), followed by a dictionary (1901). In an address to the Lambeth Conference in 1908 he suggested that the Church of England was concerned not only "to restore these ancient Churches for their own sakes, but also one may confidently hope that in the future they will be able to do what we Westerns cannot do – they will be able to appeal to the Moslem mind" (cited after Taylor, Narratives of Identity: The Syrian Orthodox Church and the Church of England, p. 125). Wilson p. 133. [Attributes: First Edition]
