        The Book of Antelopes.

      1894-1900 1894 - 4to. 4 vols. Original green cloth, gilt vignette of antelope to uppers, gilt rules to boards, spines with gilt rules and lettering; pp. xxxv + 220, v + 194, v + 245, v + 242, 100 hand coloured lithographs after J. Smit and J. Wolf, 121 text illustrations; spines a little darkened, repair to one text page in vol I, otherwise very good, plates very clean. First edition. Scarce. This great work on antelopes was originally the project of Sir Victor Brook (1843 - 1891), the father of Viscount Alanbrooke and a serious big game hunter and naturalist. He supervised the production of the beautiful plates by Smit and Wolf but died of pneumonia, aged only 48, before the book could be completed. The writing of the text was taken over by Sclater, then Secretary of the Zoological Society of London, who wrote the main text, and Thomas, curator at the British Museum of Natural History, who provided the scientific descriptions. The result was a triumph both artistically and scientifically: "The book of Antelopes is a timely work and it is matter for congratulation that the colored plates prepared under the supervision of the late Sir Victor Brook more than twenty years ago are finally given to the public accompanied by such authoritative letter press" (Science, New Series, Vol 3, No. 67, April 10 1896, p. 566). The work's value partly resides in its recording of species now lost to us, hence the reviewer's appreciation of its timeliness: "…it is sad to feel that many species are on the road to rapid extinction" (Ibid.).

        Determination experimentale de la valeur du metre en longueurs d?ondes lumineuses

      Gauthier-Villars et Fils 1894 With 2 full - page engravings and numerous charts in the text. Half morocco and marbled boards, rebacked with the original backstrip laid down, gilt decorations on the spine; interior clean, all edges gilt. A unique copy inscribed to astronomer Benjamin Apthorp Gould from each member of the Comité Internationale du Poids et Measures, with a photograph of them tipped in. First separate edition of this scarce work by renowned scientist Albert Michelson, the first American Nobel Prize winner for physics. The work describes the length of the international meter bar, which Michelson originally measured in terms of wave - lengths of cadmium light. Two years earlier, Michelson found that the red spectral line of natural cadmium was exceptionally coherent. He then developed an interferometer to determine the length of the International Prototype Meter. His measurements gave the meter a value of 1,553,164.13 times the wavelength of cadmium red in air, at 760 mm of atmospheric pressure at 15 C. This copy is inscribed to the noted American astronomer Benjamin Apthorp Gould (1824 - 1896), who founded the Argentine National Observatory. It is signed by all members of the International Committee for Weights and Measures for Gould?s 70th birthday, with an original photograph of the Committee tipped in. The Committee was formed on May 20, 1875 when the Treaty of the Meter was signed by 17 countries. Gould received the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society in 1883 for his publication Uranometria Argentina (1879). The publication assigned Gould designations to all bright stars within 100 degrees of the south celestial pole in a manner similar to what Flamsteed had earlier done for the northern hemisphere. Born in Prussia to a Jewish family, Michelson moved to America at the age of two. He joined the U.S. Naval Academy in 1869, with a focus in optics, heat, and climatology. In 1907, Michelson was recognized for his work on measuring the speed of light, and for the Michelson - Morley experiment, which attempted to determine the velocity of matter, the results of which were used by Einstein to develop his theory of special relativity. As well as winning the Nobel Prize, Michelson was also awarded the Copley Medal, the Henry Draper Medal, and the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society. It is interesting to note that a crater in the moon is named after him.

        Epistola de Contemptu Mundi di Frate Hieronymo da Ferrara dellordine de Frati Predicatori la Quale Manda ad Elena Buonaccorsi Sua Madre, per consolarla della morte del Fratello, suo Zio

      [Hammersmith]: Printed Privately for Charles Fairfax Murray by William Morris at the Kelmscott Press, 1894 Edited and illustrated by Murray. First edition thus. One of 150 copies. Publisher's slate blue boards over white cloth, printed in black and red ink. Fine, with just a few faint spots to the otherwise fresh boards, with former owners Lenore and James Marshall's bookplate (an original etching signed by Ernest Roth) to the front pastedown, bright and clean pages. A beautiful copy. This copy of Savonarola's Epistola was formerly owned by American poet and activist Lenore Marshall and her husband James. In addition to her work as an activist boycotting nuclear activity and lynching, Lenore was an editor at Cape and Smith, where she encouraged the publication of William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury and edited As I Lay Dying. The Marshall's bookplate is an original etching by noted German-American landscape artist Ernest D. Roth. Epistola de Contemptu Mundi is a 15th century religious text by Girolamo Savonarola, an Italian Dominican friar and martyr best known for helping establish democratic order in Florence after the overthrow of the Medici family. This edition was designed and hand printed at William Morris' Kelmscott Press, which produced beautiful with elaborate decorations inspired by medieval manuscripts. Kelmscott's Chaucer, the press' best-known work, is widely considered one of the most beautiful volumes ever printed and is often cited as a major source of inspiration for modern private presses. Notably, Epistola, designed by and printed for Charles Fairfax Murray, was not sold by Kelmscott and represents one of the few occasions where Morris allowed the wishes of his colleagues to influence the press' choice of publications.. Illus. by Murray, Charles Fairfax. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine.

        A Veteran of 1812: The Life of James Fitzgibbon

      Toronto: William Briggs, 1894. 1st. Hard Cover. Very Good+. SCARCE 1st CANADIAN EDITION IN VERY GOOD+ CONDITION1st. Small Octavo. Red cloth with gilt decoration of swords and a facsimile signature on front. Contents are clean and tight. 347 pages including Appendices plus Preface and Table of Contents. Frontispiece portrait, facsimile of Fitzgibbon's handwriting, fold-out facsimile of a letter from Isaac Brock, full page illustrations, photographs and maps. Condition: Very Good+. Inserted two newspaper articles relating to the death of the author in 1915 and to the subject of this book the author's father who died at Windsor Castle. Also inserted is a silk red ribbon with "Lundy's Lane 1814" printed on it. Likely a centenary item from 1914. Fitzgibbon is one of the most underrated Canadian historical figures being directly involved in two of the major historical events in Upper Canada in the first half of the 19th century. He was in the British attack on the American encampment at Stoney Creek in the early hours of June 6, 1813. They then marched with the rest of the 49th Regiment to begin a loose siege of Fort George. FitzGibbon was successful in using guerilla warfare, with First Nations allies. Their tactics were to harass the Americans camped at Fort George, attack their supply lines and ambush any soldiers who strayed far from the protection of Fort George. He had proven his initiative in this type of guerilla war and was given command of a select group of infantrymen and stationed at the DeCew House in present-day Thorold, Ontario. FitzGibbon is known to be the senior officer whom Laura Secord warned of the American surprise attack now known he Battle of Beaver Dams (or the Battle of the Beechwoods). This battle was won by the outnumbered 50 British soldiers, however in fact it was the up to 400 natives who did the actual fighting. He remained quite active for the duration of the war, including in the Battle of Lundy's Lane.He also was the defender in Toronto of the Rebellion in 1837 and successful in defeating the mob preparing to attack Toronto. From the Preface, "I have had the book published in Canada rather than in England, preferring it should first see the light of day in the city whose loyalty and homes he had guarded with so jealous an arm in life, and to which his last conscious thoughts returned in the hour of death.

        One People, One Destiny, and Other Poems

      Alston, Maryborough, Queensland, 1894, Cloth, Book Condition: Good, First Edition, Signed by Author's RelativeSize: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall, 173 pages with monochrome photographic frontispiece of John James Knight. 275 grams. Book is in good lightly marked condition with some wear to cover and a couple of pages loosening. Gift inscription from E. Knight (presumed relative of author) dated 1918. First Edition. Knight, John James (1863?1927) by H. J. SummersJohn James Knight (1863-1927), editor, was born on 7 June 1863 at Shelton, Staffordshire, England, son of James Knight, potter and printer, and his wife Louisa, née Blagg. Taken to New Zealand early, he left school at 11 to learn printing on the Bruce Herald, returned to England at 17 and joined William Owen and Henry Broadhurst in starting the Staffordshire Knot, a paper supporting trade unionism. Migrating to Queensland in 1884, he found work with the Brisbane Newspaper Co. Ltd as a printer. He was soon a reporter on the Brisbane Courier and became chief parliamentary reporter in the 1890s. Knight's political and industrial enthusiasm disappeared rapidly. He had won the confidence of Andrew Fisher and Thomas Glassey and when William Lane left for Paraguay in 1893 Knight was offered but declined the editorial chair of the Queensland Worker. During the industrial turmoil of the 1890s he preferred to investigate local history. His works included In the Early Days (1895), Australian Pioneers and Reminiscences (1896), completed after the death of Nehemiah Bartley from Bartley's notes and diaries, and Brisbane: a Historical Sketch of the Capital of Queensland (1897). The historical stream dried up when he became editor in 1900 of the Courier's evening publication, the Observer. Editor-in-chief of all the company's publications in 1906-16, Knight then became managing director and later chairman. His years in command saw such abrasive events as Brisbane's tram strike of 1912, the Labor government's introduction of state enterprises in 1915 and the abolition of the Legislative Council in 1922. The Courier was Labor's fiercest critic on these and other counts, yet the recrimination evoked seemed never to touch Knight personally. Like William Morris Hughes, he replaced his youthful fervour for unionism with an ultra-patriotic Imperialist stance during World War I. He represented Queensland on the Imperial Mission to the War Fronts of pressmen in 1918 and returned to publish The True War Spirit, praising the British role. A founding member and president of the Queensland Aero Club with a belief in the future of aviation, Knight was discussing aeroplanes for medical transport with Rev. John Flynn long before the creation of the Australian Inland Mission and had a company formed to deliver copies of the Courier by air to the country. His sympathy with country people led to practical support of the Country Women's Association and the Bush Book Club. As he grew older, he became very remote from his staff who occasionally saw a white-haired, mild-mannered man wearing rimless spectacles. Regular national and international press conferences which he relished took him on visits to Europe and North America. When he died of pneumonia on 24 November 1927 in his home at Kangaroo Point, Knight left the whole of his estate, valued for probate at £2884, to his wife Kitty, née Dutton, whom he had married at Shelton on 2 August 1884; they had two daughters. Hundreds attended his Anglican funeral at Toowong cemetery. The Labor government which his papers had berated for years was represented by the minister for works at the express wish of Premier McCormack; former Labor premier William Neal Gillies was seen weeping at the graveside.

        Les nouvelles idées sur la structure du Système Nerveux chez l'homme et chez les vertés

      Paris: Reinwald, 1894. Original Wraps. Very Good. 8vo. Original issue in wrappers bound in cloth binding. Collation: xvi, 200 [3] pp. with 49 illustrations in text from the author's own drawings. This is a translation of the Spanish edition by L. Azoulay. The text and figures are very good. This is a major work by Ramon y Cajal which "… sets out the cytological and histological foundations of modern neurology. His descriptions of the cerebral cortex are still the most authorative." (G&M 1293.1 ). The present work is a greatly expanded text from the earlier Spanish and French editions of Ramon y Cajal's research. Eimas notes that this work "contains forty-nine illustrations of cells and tissue strata as well as much detail on handling, staining and interpretation of studies of prepared specimens. The preface is by Mathias Marie Duval (1844-1907) who discovered the technique of fixation of tissue in collodion blocks for sectioning and microscopic study." Ramón y Cajal is recognized as one of the great histologists of all time, particularly for his fundamental studies on the cellular structure of the nervous system. He was born in Petilla de Aragon, a small village in the Spanish Pyrenees. Ramón y Cajal studied medicine at Zaragoza, where he received his degree in 1873. After service in the Spanish Army in Cuba, he obtained a doctor's degree from Madrid and in 1877 was appointed professor of anatomy at Zaragoza. His career was interrupted for a time because of pulmonary tuberculosis, after which he served as professor of anatomy at Valencia, professor of histology at Barcelona, and in 1892 he assumed the chair of histology and pathological anatomy at Madrid. Together with Golgi, Ramón y Cajal was awarded the Nobel prize in 1906 for their many contributions into man's understanding of the structure and function of the nervous system. Making his own improvements on Golgi's stain techniques, Ramón y Cajal discovered cells and structures in the nervous system that had never before been seen. He chronicled the life history, structure, and working mechanism of the neuron and, in so doing, created an histological approach to the study of the central nervous system. His work and ideas were expressed in over two hundred papers and close to fifteen books. (Heirs, 2144) (Garrison-Morison, 1293.1 -Spanish edition; Heirs of Hipocrates, 2144; Waller 7735).

        Musterbuch mit über 300 farbig lithographierten Abziehbildern, davon 22 halbseitig, 16 ganzseitig sowie 4 doppelblattgroß. (Leipzig, ca. 1880-1910). Folio (40,7 x 28,8 cm). 76 Blatt, davon 35 aus weissem, 19 aus einseitig glänzendem olivgrünem u. 22 aus einseitig glänzendem schwarzen Papier (insgesamt nur 6 doppelseitig beklebt). Halbleinwandband d. Zt.

      . . Das vorliegende umfangreiche u. großformatige Musterbuch läßt sich der Abziehbilder-Fabrik von A. B. Cramer aufgrund einer Preisliste aus dem Jahr 1894 zuschreiben. Zahlreiche der dort aufgeführten Bilder sind im Musterbuch auf kleinen montierten Zetteln mit der entsprechenden Liefernummer versehen, auch stimmen die genannten Formate überein. Viele Bilder tauchen jedoch nicht (mehr) oder (noch) nicht in der Liste auf. Letztere sind stilistisch eher dem Beginn des 20. Jahrhundert zuzuordnen. Es ergibt sich also eine Bandbreite von ca. 30 Jahren. - "Wir verstehen unter Abziehbilder alle Bilder, welche vom Papier auf andere Unterlagen, vor allem auf Metall, Glas, Keramik, Kunststoffe u.a. übertragen werden können... Wie andere Sparten der Luxuspapierproduktion schwanden die Abziehbilder langsam aus unserem Bewußtsein. Als einzige Sparte jedoch verloren sie nicht an Bedeutung. Denn, daß wir in unserem täglichen Leben immer wieder neu von Abziehbildern umgeben sind, daß wir sie täglich benutzen, daß ganze Industrien ohne sie nicht leben können, das ist nur wenigen bewußt. Die Abziehbilder erweisen sich als die lebensfähigste und erfolgreichste Verkörperung des Luxuspapiers" (Pieske: ABC des Luxuspapiers S. 73) - umso wichtiger ist es heute, die Anfänge dieser Illustrations- und Ausschmückungstechnik zu bewahren u. zu dokumentieren. - Der vorliegende Band stellt eine große Bandbreite möglicher Formen u. Formate vor: Tier- u. Pflanzendarstellungen vom röhrenden Hirschen über elegante Reiterinnen u. Blumengirlanden bis hin zu einem monströsen Schweinskopf, Zahlen- u. Buchstabenreihen, Wappen u. Heraldika, Holz- u. Flechtwerkimitationen, Friese mit Darstellungen aus Historie u. Kinderleben, Blumen u. Stilleben, Landschaften sowie natürlich eine vielgestaltige Anzahl von Ornamenten u. Dekorationsstücken im Stil des Historismus u. Jugendstils. Besonders hervorzuheben sind die großformatigen Bilder darunter Tiere (8; bis zu ca. 40 x 28 cm) u. Landschaften (1; ca. 20 x 20 cm) sowie 2 Friese mit Winterszenen (ca. 15 x 40 cm) auf schwarzem Grund. Sieben Darstellungen von Pflanzen u. Tieren ebenfalls auf schwarzem Grund u. mit Silber u. Gold gedruckt dokumentieren das Interesse der Zeit an fernöstlicher Kunst (bis zu ca. 40 x 25 cm). Elemente des Jugendstils finden sich dagegen eher in den kleineren Dekorationselementen, deren schillernde Farbgebung immer wieder an Perlmutteinlagen (wie in der Preisliste erwähnt) erinnert. - Meist mit montiertem Schildchen mit handschriftl. eingetragener Nummer sowie weiteren möglichen Eintragungen zu Musteranzahl u. Preis. Beiliegend: 1. Preis-Liste über Abziehbilder von A. B. Cramer (vorm. C. Hesse). Lithographische Kunst-Anstalt und Abziehbilder-Fabrik in Leipzig. Leipzig, Selbstverlag, 1894. 8vo. (20,6 x 13,2 cm). 32 S. Einfacher Umschlag d. Zt. - Neben den Abziehbildern bietet Cramer auch "Laterna-magica-Bilder", "Religiöse Bilder und Kerzendecorationen" sowie "Oelfarbe-Druckbilder" an. - Cramer bezeichnet seine 1867 gegründete Firma als "das älteste [Etablissement] in dieser Branche" (vgl. Russell VII/2, Sp. 21/22). Dem widerspricht der Artikel "Abziehbilderindustrie" im Stadtlex. Nürnberg (S. 50), der das Gründungsjahr der Firma C. A. Pocher mit 1858 angibt. - 2. Musterbuch, wohl ebenfalls von Cramer. Mit zahlr. Mustern. Ebenda. ca. 1900. (21,4 x 14,5 cm). 45 (39 einseitig beklebte) Bl. Schlichter flexibler Leinwandband d. Zt. Einband des Hauptbandes etwas fleckig u. berieben, Vorderdeckel teilw. mit aufgeworfenem Bezugspapier. Von den weissen Blättern fehlt 1, von den olivgrünen 3, wobei sie jedoch nicht unbedingt mit Bildern versehen gewesen sind, eventuell auch nach dem Binden sofort entfernt wurden. 5 Blatt mit Ausschnitten (Bildverlust), 1 Tafel verklebt, 5 Darstellungen stärker beschädigt, zahlreiche Bilder mit kleineren Verlusten, insgesamt jedoch für ein fragiles Objekt dieser Art sehr gut erhalten.

Scuffing and light soiling to leather; internally clean and sound. Near fine. "The author, one of the best Northwest historical writers, was commissioned by the Oregon legislature to record the history of the early wars with the Indians of the Northwest.

        L'Extinction des torrents en France par le reboisement. PLANCHES

      Imprimerie Nationale, Paris 1894 - Fort in-4 relié, III-9pp. 126 planches photographiques montées sur onglets dont de nombreux clichés en doubles planches, à noter 2 planches « bis » supplémentaires. Il est indiqué fautivement en page de titre « 127 vues photographiques » (la table générale en signale bien 126 + 2pl. bis). Les « 32 planches » indiquées en page de titre font référence au volume I de texte. Remarquables clichés reproduits en phototypie par Ch. Küss, inspecteur adjoint des forêts. Dans son introduction, Demontzey précise que « ce volume est exclusivement affecté aux vues photographiques prises par les forestiers-reboiseurs pendant les diverses phases des travaux qu’ils ont exécutés dans un certain nombre de torrents choisis, dans les régions des Alpes et des Pyrénées. ( ) La photographie est évidemment impuissante à fournir aux personnes qui n’ont pas intimement parcouru les montagnes et leurs torrents, l’image saisissante de la réalité. Souvent les points de station désirables font défaut et l’on obtient que des vues insuffisantes ou incomplètes. ( ) Parfois l’opérateur est obligé d’incliner son appareil, et la vue devient plus ou moins rasante le long d’un versant qu’elle montre privé de son véritable relief et sous un aspect moins rude qu’en réalité. » Chaque vue est accompagnée d’une page de notice explicative placée en avant, classée par régions, grands bassins, bassins principaux, départements, périmètres et torrents. La table des matières indique : les numéros des vues, leurs titres, leurs dates et les auteurs des clichés. Les vues se répartissent ainsi : Région des Alpes françaises (Savoie, Haute-Savoie, Basses-Alpes, Hautes-Alpes), Région des Pyrénées (Haute-Garonne, Hautes-Pyrénées, Hautes-Alpes). Outre Ch. Küss, les photographes sont MM. De Gayffier, Chapelain, Loze, Billecart, Barret, Dellon, Labbé, Sardi, Vincent, Abadie, Arlen, Aubert et Béraud, conservateurs des forêts, inspecteurs et gardes généraux. Prosper Demontzey (1831-1898) était un des principaux ingénieurs qui expérimenta les techniques de reboisement en montagne et lutta contre l’érosion des torrents. Il fut responsable du reboisement massif des Alpes du Sud. Il instaura dès 1886 l’utilisation systématique de la photographie par les Services des Restaurations des Terrains en Montagne. Ouvrage publié sous les auspices du Directeur des Forêts avec l’approbation du Ministre de l’Agriculture. Reliure demi-chagrin grenat, dos à 5 nerfs, avec titre gravé doré. Bords et coins des plats frottés, coins émoussés, quelques frottements aux nerfs, mais reliure très solides. A noter que le relieur a placé en fin de volume les planches 122 à 126 correspondant au département des Hautes-Alpes, Bassin de la Durance (torrent de Valauria). Les planches sont en très bon état, sans rousseurs. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Epistola de Contemptu Mundi di Frate Hieronymo da Ferrara dellordine de Frati Predicatori la Quale Manda ad Elena Buonaccorsi Sua Madre, per consolarla della morte del Fratello, suo Zio

      [Hammersmith]: Printed Privately for Charles Fairfax Murray by William Morris at the Kelmscott Press 1894 - Edited and illustrated by Murray. First edition thus. One of 150 copies. Publisher's slate blue boards over white cloth, printed in black and red ink. Fine, with just a few faint spots to the otherwise fresh boards, with former owners Lenore and James Marshall's bookplate (an original etching signed by Ernest Roth) to the front pastedown, bright and clean pages. A beautiful copy. This copy of Savonarola's Epistola was formerly owned by American poet and activist Lenore Marshall and her husband James. In addition to her work as an activist boycotting nuclear activity and lynching, Lenore was an editor at Cape and Smith, where she encouraged the publication of William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury and edited As I Lay Dying. The Marshall's bookplate is an original etching by noted German-American landscape artist Ernest D. Roth. Epistola de Contemptu Mundi is a 15th century religious text by Girolamo Savonarola, an Italian Dominican friar and martyr best known for helping establish democratic order in Florence after the overthrow of the Medici family. This edition was designed and hand printed at William Morris' Kelmscott Press, which produced beautiful with elaborate decorations inspired by medieval manuscripts. Kelmscott's Chaucer, the press' best-known work, is widely considered one of the most beautiful volumes ever printed and is often cited as a major source of inspiration for modern private presses. Notably, Epistola, designed by and printed for Charles Fairfax Murray, was not sold by Kelmscott and represents one of the few occasions where Morris allowed the wishes of his colleagues to influence the press' choice of publications.

        The Yellow Book: An Illustrated Quarterly

      London: Elkin Mathews & John Lane, 1894-1897 Thirteen volumes. First editions. Publisher's pictorial yellow cloth, illustrated and lettered in black. Near fine, with light wear to the extremities, a hint of toning to the spines, faint scattered offsetting to the endpapers, Vol. II lightly starting at p. 84, Vol. III with minor pencil marginalia to contents page, otherwise clean pages and sturdy bindings. A beautiful set, extremely uncommon in such nice condition. The Yellow Book was an important albeit short-lived serial publication that is largely associated with its first art director Aubrey Beardsley. Over the course of its publication, The Yellow Book included literature by noted authors such as Henry James, William Butler Yeats, Henry Harland, Arthur Symons, and Kenneth Grahame, and artwork by talented artists including Beardsley, Walter Sickert, Charles Pears, and A. S. Hartrick, among others. The title "yellow book" refers to the 19th century practice of French publishers to use yellow wrappers on explicit literature, and indicates the mission of the journal- to publish the artists and authors whose works were too controversial for more mainstream publications. Indeed, when his artwork was critiqued as crass after the first two volumes, Beardsley included artwork in strikingly different styles under the pseudonyms Philip Brouqhton and Albert Foschter in Volume III. Riding the popular success garnered by his illustrations for Oscar Wilde's Salome, Beardsley continued his striking and controversial illustrations in the first issue of The Yellow Book in April 1894, drawing immediate attention to the journal. However, after Wilde was arrested for charges of indecency, Beardsley received negative attention for his association with Wilde and was fired by John Lane after the fifth issue of The Yellow Book as a result. Unfortunately, The Yellow Book was tainted by its association with the scandal, and the publication halted after its 13th and final issue in April 1897. Ironically, though he is linked to its initial fame and ultimate demise, Oscar Wilde was never published in The Yellow Book because of his unfriendly relationship with Beardsley; these two leaders of the Aesthetic movement were often compared for their similarly dark and controversial material, which unfortunately only fueled their animosity towards one another.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.
