BOWMAN, Sir William.
London: Harrison and Sons, 1892. FIRST EDITION. Bowman's most substantial publication, reprinting his entire literary output, with some papers published here for the first time. Bowman himself took an active part in the production, revising the proofs and adding notes. It includes his classic paper On the structure and use of the Malpighian bodies of the kidney (G&M 1231), his papers on striated muscle (G&M 542), and his numerous and important papers on ophthalmology and ophthalmic surgery (see G&M 1505, etc.). When originally published, Bowman's papers were distributed over many different journals and books, and this is therefore a particularly valuable collection.2 volumes, 4to, pp. xxx, 288, frontispiece portrait and 6 engraved plates (1 partly coloured); xxx, 422, frontispiece portrait and 6 plates (including 5 hand-coloured lithographs of the larynx) all but one from drawings by Bowman.

Tome 1er [2ème et 3ème]. 3 Bände. Kl.8°. XII, 155 S., (1); 182 S., (1); 142 S., (1) und zus. 15 explizit erotische Orig.-Radierungen auf Japan. Etwas späteres HLeder auf 5 unechten Bünden mit goldgepr. RTitel. Rare erste Ausgabe eines der bekanntesten französischen erotischen Romane. Das Werk erschien eigentlich klandestin. Doch wohl aufgrund eines Fehlers des Druckers wurde auf der letzten Seite des 3. Bandes der Verleger genannt: Aug. Brancart, Libraire-Editeur, Amsterdam. Deshalb ist zu vermuten, dass Brancart das Werk nie in den Handel brachte. Dass es eine 1. Ausgabe überhaupt gegeben hatte, darauf verwies lediglich ein klandestiner Katalog von 1894, der nur den Titel des Werkes angab und erwähnt, dass eine Suite von 15 Illustrationen dazu erschienen sei. Erst Dutel dokumentiert diese Ausgabe, allerdings ohne den 2. Band! Sowohl Perceau 151-2 als auch Pia 837 können auf diese Ausgabe nur hinweisen und vermuten als Erscheinungsdatum 1894 bzw. 1893. Das Werk ist ausgestattet mit 15 explizit erotischen und teils flagellantischen Radierungen: ein munteres Abbild der vielfältigen, haufreudigen russischen Liebesspiele. Die 2. Ausgabe (1904) erschien ohne Illustrationen. Einbandkanten minimal berieben. Erste und letzte Seiten etwas stockfleckig, Seitenränder teils fingerfleckig und etwas gedunkelt, S. 168 des 2. Bandes mit hinterlegtem Randeinriss, stellenweise leicht braunfleckig. Dutel 537. Vgl. Perceau 151-2 u. Pia 837. --------------- Mémoires d'une Danseuse Russe. Par E. D.

Of this edition, only 4 in OCLC, none in the U.S. "Ogawa Kuzumasa (1860-1929) was, in so many ways, a pivotal figure in the history of Japanese photography. A consummate professional, and arguably the most complete Japanese photographer of the Meiji era, he succeeded in acquiring cutting edge Western technology and using it to become one of the most successful photographic businesses in Japan. Always innovative, he developed techniques which insured his collotype work was the equal of anything to be found in the west...In October 1891 Ogawa, along with his friends John Milne (the seismologist) and William Burton, photographed the devastating earthquake in the Gifu region of central Japan, and publsihed a book of the event in the following year" (Bennett, Photography in Japan, pp. 210-13).

TANAKA, Nagane
Numerous woodcut illus., mostly full-page. 2, 14 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. yellow wrappers (first six leaves a tiny bit mouse-eaten in margin), orig. block-printed title label on upper cover, new stitching. Tokyo: Ishikawa Shibataro, 1892. First edition of the first work on the artificial cultivation of shiitake mushrooms, which, when dried, became an important export crop for Japan. Tanaka (1849-1922), studied biology at Tokyo Imperial University and was the first to classify Japanese fungi using Western taxonomy. He wrote, with Nobujiro Tanaka, the classic Mycographia Nipponica (Tokyo: 1890), the first modern survey of the fungi of Japan. Tanaka, well-known throughout the country for his advocacy of agricultural reforms, developed methods of artificially cultivating mushrooms, described here, through the inoculation of mycelium. His techniques are still the standard methods used today. Domestic and export demand far exceeded the quantity of mushrooms found naturally so the Japanese began to fell shii-noki and oaks. The logs were then scored with a sharp knife, laid on the ground, and remained there for upwards of three years, after which they were stacked in rows in a shady area where they became covered in shiitake mushrooms. The strikingly handsome woodcuts depict forests, foresters at work, the felled logs, the scoring marks, the process of drying and then soaking the logs in ponds, and then the stacking of the logs, inoculating, and waiting for the spores to develop. The final woodcuts depict the drying processes of the harvested mushrooms (under the sun or placed ne … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Harrison, 1892. Limited Edition. Quarto. 242 pages, illustrations with rich color frontispiece by Arthur Clay.

The book is much indebted as is the writer of it for the frontispiece and the very effective design for the cover and I hope that you will think their part in introducing your designs.." Your very sincerely, H. Brackenbury. His military service was wide and varied from Canada to Crimea but his most important service was during the Indian mutiny.

He was offered an appointment in Ireland but resigned hoping for an appointment to Egypt. That refusal to serve in Ireland earned him the anger of Queen Victoria and Gladstone so he was placed on half pay. He returned to regimental service in 1883 and jointed the relief expedition on behalf of Chinese Gordon. His adventures in the Sudan were published in 1885 in The River Column. In 1888 he was promoted to lieutenant-general as he approached retirement in 1892 he wrote this major book.

London: Macmillan and Co., 1892. Octavo. Original burgundy cloth, spine lettered and triple-ruled in gilt, boards ruled in blind, edges uncut. Binder's ticket to front pastedown. Spine ends and hinges professionally restored, boards marked, light foxing to front free endpaper verso, short tear to upper edge of C8, paper flaw to lower corner of P1, overall a very good copy. 16 lithograph plates (15 are called for in the list of plates, the 16th plate is laid in between pages 104–5 and is typically bound between pages 176–7). First edition of Galton's work designed to assist with classifying and indexing large numbers of fingerprints. "The use of fingerprints for the identification of criminals had been advocated in 'Nature' in 1880 by both Henry Faulds and Sir William Herschel, but was put on a scientific basis only in Galton's book on Finger Prints, published in 1892" (Bulmer, p. 35). Of particular importance was Galton's work on establishing that "the pattern of a person's fingerprints did not change from youth to old age and creating a taxonomic system by which the variations in fingerprint patterns could be described and catalogued" (ODNB). "In 1892, in his book Finger Prints, Galton gathered together all these earlier studies [by Purkinje, Faulds, and Herschel] and recorded other experiments, illustrated from photographs and drawings. The outcome of this was the appointment in 1899 of a Royal Commission which came out in favour of the adoption of the system by the British police forces" (PMM).

Numa Broc, Dictionnaire illustré des explorateurs français du XIXe siècle en Afrique, pp. 27-29. Bibl. de la Côte-d'Ivoire, 286. Première édition, assez rare et recherchée, de cet important récit de voyage. Louis-Gustave Binger, explorateur né à Strasbourg en 1856, faiseur d'Empire, ami des peuplades de Côte d'Ivoire et du Burkina Faso, fut le premier gouverneur de la Côte d'Ivoire en 1893. En 1897 et pendant 10 ans, il fut directeur des Affaires d'Afrique. Par sa grande expédition de 1887 à 1889, il a exploré de vastes régions de l'Ouest Africain jusqu'alors inconnues. Géographe, géologue, botaniste, ethnologue, ses cartes firent référence pendant de nombreuses années. "Voyageur modèle, Binger a accumulé une masse surprenante de renseignements d'ordre géographique, botanique, zoologique, ethnographique, linguistique, commercial, politique... Pour nous limiter à l'aspect géographique, rappelons qu'il a détruit la légende des "Monts de Kong" et qu'il a découvert près de Sikassso les montagnes qui séparent les eaux du Niger, des Volta et des rivières de Côte d'Ivoire ; il a fixé définitivement le tracé des branches supérieures de la Volta Noire et corrigé les cartes de ses prédécesseurs, notamment celle de Barth. On retiendra aussi les évocations très vivantes des grandes villes soudanaises, Kong, Bobo Dioulasso, Ouagadougou... et les notices bien documentées sur les principaux États noirs tra … [Click Below for Full Description]

I with an engraved portrait of the author as frontispiece, and 119 figures in the text comprising 105 illustrations from wood engravings of which 35 are full-page, and 14 sketch-maps and plans, vol. II with 96 figures in the text comprising 76 illustrations from wood engravings of which 26 are full-page, 6 sketch-maps, 5 full-page maps, 5 pages of topographical profiles (3 to the page), 4 pages illustrating tattoo markings, and a large folding map with details in colour, roy. 8vo., pp. 513, 416, contemporary half morocco with raised bands, marbled boards and contrasting marbled end-papers, t.e.g., some light foxing throughout, faint staining along the upper margin of a few leaves in the second volume, but otherwise a very good and most attractive copy of a very scarce work. Louis-Gustave Binger's great work should need no introduction, and yet it seems to have been relatively under-employed as a source for the period. The reason for this is simple: it is a very scarce work, and, to judge from the comments in contemporary or early twentieth century accounts, this seems to have been the case almost since its date of publication: the Encyclopédie Coloniale et Maritime of 1949, for example, was by that year calling it rare (volume I, p. 81). Binger had already been in West Africa for a number of years before he undertook the … [Click Below for Full Description]
