        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]

        Los desastres de la guerra. Collección de ochenta láminas inventadas y grabadas al agua fuerte.

      Madrid, Real Academia de Belles Artes de San Fernando, 1892. ____*-------* Second edition. It was printed in the "Calcografia" in 1892 in an edition limited to 100 copies. This serie was engraved by Goya between 1810 and 1820, but not published before 1863. This second edition is, according to Harris, "generally well printed on suitable paper" and, although inferior to the first, is the best of all subsequent editions. It was again published in 1892, 1903, 1906, 1923, 1930 et 1937. After the first edition, the plates were probably steel-faced and consequently do not degrade as quickly as they otherwise might. This volume does contain a title and a biographical introduction, copied from the first edition. Most of these gruesome studies were inspired by events Goya witnessed during the Peninsular War of 1808-14, and Madrid famine of 1811-12. Very good copy. Harris, Goya, Engravings and Lithographs no 121-203. In-4 oblong. Collation : (4) pp., 80 planches. Contemporary half linen, spine gilted.

        Tesoro Espiritual (Spiritual Treasure)

      Milan: Grandi y Tenconi, 1892. 284 pp. + indices. 3 1/2 x 6"; Rare tortoise shell binding with ornate silver-colored cut-out clasps, cover titled "Recuerdo" which translates to "Memory", all edges gilt, silk moire endpapers, tissue guard over frontispiece woodcut is intact but slightly foxed, each page of text has decorative borders, fine condition. The binding in this book is both rare and very attractive. Despite the name of tortoiseshell, most of these bindings were made from exotic marine turtles whose value came from its shine, beauty, and rarity. Most bindings in the 18th century were made from leather and vellum, thus the rarity of the tortoiseshell bindings. Bindings other than vellum and leather were considered richer and more expensive. Tortoise shells were not imported in large quantities so the material remained expensive and only available for the wealthy. Tortoiseshell bindings for books was mainly used for small Bibles, religious texts, prayer books and gift books and became popular in the 17th and 18th century

        DEDICATION TO BACCHUS - Alma-Tadema, 1892.

      DEDICATION TO BACCHUS Staalgravure door Auguste Blanchard naar een schilderij van Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Uitgegeven te Londen in 1892. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 49 x 94 cm.De Londense Lef?vre Gallery wijdde een speciale tentoonstelling aan het schilderij (waarnaar deze gravure gemaakt is), vervaardigd in opdracht voor de collectie van bankier Baron von Schr?der. Het werk heeft een kind in de cultus van Bacchus als onderwerp. Zonlicht schijnt door de paarse baldakijn en werpt een schaduw op de plechtige figuren van gesluierde priester en priesteres die het kind opwachten voor een marmeren altaar. Naast hen bespeelt een groep muzikanten hun instrumenten. Links van het altaar wacht het kind met een menigte vereerders, waaronder vier mannen met een grote wijnzak als zoenoffer voor de goden.Een bacchante gekleed in een luipaardvel staat bij een zilveren bokaal, die gebruikt wordt voor het mengen van gewijde wijn met water. Dit is een kopie van een beroemd stuk uit de zgn. Hildesheim-schat, ontdekt in 1868, waarvan Alma-Tadema een replica bezat en die op veel van zijn schilderijen is afgebeeld. Een andere bacchante, in een tijgervel, zwaait met een tak die is versierd met bloemen, een bel en een lint. Er wordt verondersteld dat dit een variant is van de traditionele thyrsus (ook ?Bacchusstaf? genaamd). De twee dansende bacchanten naderen het altaar waarop zij de guirlande op traditionele wijze zullen ophangen.Een verschil tussen schilderij en gravure (die drie jaar na elkaar gemaakt zijn), is dat de guirlande op de gravure, gemaakt is van bloemen die blaadjes verliezen en op het schilderij de guirlande alleen bladgroen heeft. Nog een opmerkelijk verschil: op de gravure aan de tempel rechts zit geen fries met daarop centauren (bekend om hun onblusbare libido), ook een bronzen beeld van een centaur voor de tempel ontbreekt. Mogelijk heeft de kunstenaar verwijzingen naar de orgi?n in Livius? verslag van het Bacchanalische schandaal in 186 v. Chr., willen beperken. Deze inwijdingssc?ne wordt meer gekenmerkt door godsdienstigheid dan door Bacchanalische hartstocht.Prijs: ? 3.450,- (incl. lijst).

        Untersuchungen ueber die Ausbreitung

      1892. First Edition . HERTZ, Heinrich. Untersuchungen Ueber Die Ausbreitung Der Elektrischen Kraft. Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1892. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter dark green pebbled morocco gilt, raised bands, patterned endpapers, marbled boards and edges. $2000.First edition in book form of HertzÂ’s discoveries in wireless telegraphy.""Hertz demonstrated what Maxwell had predicted, that electromagnetic waves radiated in space with the speed of light. Hertz determined these waves to be of greater length than light and that they could be reflected, refracted and polarized. This discovery and its demonstration led directly to radio communication, television and radar"" (Dibner 71). Hertz's proof that electrical waves can be created and then sent and received through space has been shown to be of profound importance in twentieth-century technology. The experiments were reported periodically from 1887 onwards in the Annalen der Physik und Chemie before being collected, with an additional preface and explanatory notes, in book form. With 40 in-text diagrams. Text in German. PMM 377. Norman 1061. Owner ink stamp to front flyleaf, title page and dedication leaf.Interior quite clean and fine, minor rubbing to extremities, spine gently toned to brown. A handsome copy.
