        The Pamirs; being A Narrative of a Year's Expedition on Horseback and on Foot through Kashmir, Western Tibet, Chinese Tartary, and Russian Central Asia

      John Murray, London 1893 - This set lacks the folding map in Volume One, but is otherwise complete. However, a second copy of Volume One will also be included. This second copy of Volume One is also the 1893 stated "Second Edition". It is also an ex-library copy with faults (front free endpaper pasted down to front pastedown endpaper, inner margin of frontispiece glued to inner margin of title page, dampstains to spine and front board), but it does have the folding map at the rear. The folding map has no library markings, but does have a couple of 1/2" tears to the blank margins, and some minor foxing). This makes three volumes in total, with two copies of Volume One. Volume One: xx, 360 pages + frontispiece + plates. Ex-library, with rubber stamps of the "Scarborough Mechanics' Institute". No other library markings. Top corner of front board bumped. Rear inner hinge split. Volume Two: x, [2], 352 pages + frontispiece + plates + 2 folding maps at rear. Bookseller's label mostly removed from front board. Volume One (second copy of): Principal faults described above. Ex-library "Lawson Mechanics Institute". All three volumes stated "Second Edition", 1893. The text includes some notes on the Tibetan culture, the Tibetan Buddhist religion and the Gelugpa sect. The illustrations include Tibetan buddhist Chortens near, Leh, Ladakh, an area visited by the author. "May 31st - Bought six more ponies at an average of 43 rs. each. I had about twenty to choose from, but they were mostly too small"- Volume 1, page 107. "From there we were taken into the Chhos Khang, or sacred room, sometimes called the book-room, as the Buddhist holy books are all kept there. This room would answer to a chapel in any Christian monastery, for it is in here they assemble to read their Scriptures, and more often the writings of some Lama than the words of Buddha. In the centre of this room was a gaudily painted throne, on which sits the incarnation, and on his right is another highly decorated pedastal, on which sits a gilded image of Buddha"- Volume 1, page 133-134. "The whole configuration of the country has undergone a complete change since we crossed the Karakoram pass. Instead of being shut into nullahs and gorges and deep gullies, and walled in by the precipitous rocks of giant snow-clad mountains, we are now in an open country of vast plains and distant hills and the temperature has altered with the scenery"- Volume One, page 209. ; 8vo [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Unter dem Stern. Tusche und Deckweiß auf Transparentpapier. Unten rechts signiert. Auf Pappe montiert und gerahmt.

      Der ungarische Künstler Sándor Bortnyik (1893 - 1976) war einer der bekanntesten Vertreter der Künstlergruppe ?MA?. In seinen vom deutschen Expressionismus und französischen Kubismus geprägten Arbeiten unterstützte der Avantgarde-Künstler auch die Kommunistische Partei (Kommunisták Magyarországi Pártja). Nach der Niederschlagung der ungarischen Räterepublik im August 1919 emigrierte Bortnyik mit Kassák und anderen ?MA?-Künstlern nach Wien. Anfang der 20er Jahre stellte Bortnyik in der Berliner Galerie ?Der Sturm? aus und wohnte einige Jahre in Weimar, wo er enge Verbindungen zum Bauhaus hat. 1928 gründet der inzwischen nach Budapest zurückgekehrte Bortnyik die Schule für Werbegrafik ?Mühely?, auch ?Das kleine Bauhaus? genannt.

George Beach de Forest, avec une sincère admiration pour son Bongoût et pour la diliceuse ordonnance de la Bibliothèque. Je signe ce volume comme un tèmoignage de franche sympathie pour le collègue co-Bibliophile, Octave Uzanne, New York 26. 10. 1893. Nummeriertes Exemplar, Nr. 49/100. Auf Japanpapier. Aussergewöhnlich schönes Exemplar aus der legendären Buchbinderwerkstätte von Jules Domont (1847-1931), im hinteren Deckel gestempelt.Inhalt: Lombrelle, Le parasol - La parapluie Le gant, La mitaine Le manchon, La fourrure Appendice. O. Uzanne (1851-1931), französischer Schriftsteller, Bibliophiler und Verleger kostbarer Bücher. Ein Pionier der Anwendung neuer Technologien, etwa des Farbdrucks, verabscheute er dennoch die Massenproduktion und die damit einhergehende Demokratisierung des Buchs. Nach Silverman kommt Uzanne eine paradoxe Stellung zu: Einerseits snobistischer, reaktionärer Dandy mit einer Vorliebe für vergessene Autoren des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts, andererseits ein Neuerer der Buchkunst und der Bibliophilie, der sich gegen die alte Garde der nur antiquarisch sammelnden, meist aristokratischen Bücherfreunde wandte, die in der Société des Bibliophiles François organisiert waren.Édouard-Henri Avril (1843 -1928), französischer Maler und Grafiker. Unter dem Namen Paul Avril wurde er als Illustrator erotischer bis pornografischer Romane sehr bekannt. Paul Avril hat Gustave Flauberts Salammbô, Théophile Gautiers Le Roi Caundale, John Clelands Fanny Hill, Jean-Baptiste Louvet de Couvrays Abenteuer des Chevalier de Faublas, Mario Uchards Mon Oncle Barbassou (Betrachtungen über die Liebe im Harem), Jules Michelets Die Frau, Hector Frances Musk, Hashish and Blood, die Novellensammlungen des Pietro Aretino und den lesbischen Roman Gamiani, der verschiedene Väter haben soll, illustriert. Als sein Hauptwerk gelten die Zeichnungen zu De Figuris Veneris des deutschen Gelehrten Friedrich Karl Forberg. Von Avrils jugendfreien Werken wären noch zu nennen die Illustrationen zu einigen Büchern von Octave Uzanne, darunter dessen Betrachtungen zum Damenhandschuh und zum Muff.

Schwarze Original-Halblederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln sowie überaus reichen filigranen Goldprägungen. Einbanddecken in mehrfarbiger, rot-bräunlicher Marmorierung und mit Lederecken; graue Vorsätze. Mit Karten, schwarzen und farbigen Illustrationsbeilagen. Siebente (und letzte) Auflage des Pierer-Lexikons in 12 Bänden, diese im Format (18 x 26,5 cm) deutlich größer als die Bände vorangegangener Auflagen. Im Gesamtumfang von ca. 19.200 Sp. Ergänzungsbände erschienen nicht. Bd. 1 mit angefügtem "Atlas der Architektur", der 76 (!) ganzseitige Tafeln zur Geschichte der Baukunst enthält; Bd. 2 mit "Atlas der Bildhauerkunst" (19 ganzseitige Tafeln). Eine Neuerung bildete das vom Herausgeber Joseph Kürschner entwickelte und in das Lexikon integrierte Zwölfsprachen-Wörterbuch (Böhmisch, Dänisch, Englisch, Russisch, Schwedisch, Spanisch, Französisch, Griechisch, Holländisch, Italienisch, Lateinisch, Ungarisch), das dem Benutzer 12 separate Wörterbücher ersetzte. Trotz positiver Aufnahme in der Presse blieb diese Idee auf die vorliegende Pierer-Auflage beschränkt und konnte sich längerfristig nicht durchsetzen. Die Ausgabe ist noch verschiedentlich anzutreffen, sehr selten aber in gutem Zustand erhältlich. Alle Bände in sehr gutem Zustand. Leder nicht berieben und ohne Aufhellungen, Gesamterscheinungsbild somit harmonisch. Ecken kaum bestoßen; ein Deckel am oberen Rand leicht angestoßen; Seiten frisch und fleckenfrei.

Anfang der 20er Jahre stellte Bortnyik in der Berliner Galerie ?Der Sturm? aus und wohnte einige Jahre in Weimar, wo er enge Verbindungen zum Bauhaus hat. 1928 gründet der inzwischen nach Budapest zurückgekehrte Bortnyik die Schule für Werbegrafik ?Mühely?, auch ?Das kleine Bauhaus? genannt. Guter Zustand.

Haeckel writes an unnamed colleague having just returned from two months in Sicily to acknowledge a letter he found waiting. Ernst Haeckel (1834-1919) was a renowned naturalist and professor of comparative anatomy who was responsible for identifying many species and who strove to bring Darwin's theories to a popular audience. At the end of his life, he is credited as being the first to coin the term "First World War." Folded for mailing; small remnant of a stamp or sticker; edges a bit uncrisp. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        In the Key of Blue and Other Prose Essays

      London: Elkin Mathews and John Lane, 1893. First edition. 302, [2], [16, ads] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. In the rare trial blue binding that the author disliked so much, stamped in gilt. Bookplate of Franklin and Helen Hadduck. Front hinge starting, flyleaf detached, fine otherwise. First edition. 302, [2], [16, ads] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. In the Rare Blue Binding. Notes Nelson: Among his Bodley Head books Ricketts' cover for In the Key of Blue is his most bizarre excursion into the elaborate realm of art nouveau design. The extremely curvacious but graceful pattern of laurel and hyacinths was stamped in gold on a blue cloth in the trial issue, but the regular edition was bound in a rich cream color when the designer protested that critics would otherwise be tempted to refer to the binding as "Ricketts blue." Nelson, The Early Nineties, pp. 74-5; Stetz and Samuels Lasner, England in the 1890s: Literary Publishing at the Bodley Head, no. 25; Krishnamurti / The Eighteen-Nineties, a Literary Exhibition, no. 642; Paul van Capelleveen, A new checklist of Books Designed by Cha rl es Ricketts & Charles Shannon, no.

        The Mummy. Chapters on Egyptian Funereal Archaeology.

      Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1893. Inscribed First Edition. Octavo, pp.xvi, 404. Bound in the publisher's red cloth, with gilt stamp of Mestha (otherwise known as Imseti) to front board, double-ruled blind panneling to boards, gilt titles and publisher's imprint to spine; deckled edges, newspaper insert pasted in to front flyleaf, bookplate to front pastedown. With eighty-eight illustrations, in a variety of styles (including photogravure), several of them fold-out, and a list of heiroglyphics.Binding is rubbed; worn and frayed at spine ends, bumped at corners, sunning to spine, and with tidemark to bottom left sixth of upper board, some small tears to proud deckle edges. Internally clean, with author's ink inscription to "Rev Henry Blunt, from the writer" in 1893 to first blank, tidemark to front lower right hand of front paste down, corresponding to tidemark on upper board, short ink notation to rear pastedown concerning Amen Ra in the same hand that labels and dates the review of The Mummy pasted in to the front fly, from the Pall Mall Gazette. Pictorial bookplate, "From the Middle East and Egyptological Library" of Robert William Morrell, MBE (co-founder of the Thomas Paine Society).Budge was one of the most significant early British Egyptologists, who wrote a number of standard works on the history of Egypt and Assyria at the turn of the twentieth century, though these have since been superseded by the work of modern Egyptologists, whose research with the assistance of modern technologies and with the advent of further discoveries in Egypt, have rendered a number of his conclusions unsupportable. The Mummy is a work of admirable scholarship, synthesising scholarship in German, French, and English, to giver perspective on the religious rites and means of preservation used in the process of mummification. The figure on the front board, Mestha or Imseti, was one of the four sons of Horus, venerated as a funerary god, and who appears as a human head on the lid of the canopic jar used to store the liver.
