        Zambra The Detective

      Chatto and Windus: London, 1894. 8vo. 259pp. + 32pp. ads (dated Nov. 1893). Publisher's dark red cloth over limp (or at least notably thin) boards, titled and decorated in gilt, black and tellow to spine and front board. Publisher's device in black to rear board. Rubbed to extremities, bumped and with some staining and toning to the cloth, some light chipping to the paint on the front board image, but solid, strong and handsome. A very good presentable copy of a significant rarity (the usual suspects list but a handful of copies worldwide). Floral patterned endpapers, internally clean and fresh. The stories included in this collection can trace their origin to the very simple late 19th century recurring theme: "We really like Sherlock Holmes, yes we do, we'd like more of that please." Hill set out to create a rival to Holmes and in fact created one of the more exotic variants on the theme. He realised that there had to be something more than just another deductive consulting detective and, being Headon Hill went full "mad as a bag of weasels" and created not only Zambra but the equally compelling and peculiar Kala Persad (equally rare, totally mad). The Doyle influence is manifestly obvious, although occasionally the cases don't require a mastermind to solve them, and as usual Hill basically decided that every one of the reader's immediate assumptions should be confounded at least once a chapter. Zambra sounds foreign, but is excruciatingly English, his mysteries are titled in a manner that frequently bears only a cursory relationship to the plot, and he specialises in rather entertaining linguistic misdirection. All very entertaining and peculiarly charming; ranking the author quite high on the list of Holmesian bandwagon jumpers who actually had some serious skills of their own. A very scarce and important piece of detective fiction. .

        The Journal of Indian Art, Vol. 5, Nos. 38-45

      London: W. Griggs, 1894. Hardbound. Contents are VG or better, front inner hinge and gutter weak, and front cover is beginning to detach. Lower half of spine cloth is attached only at back hinge. Several pages are brittle and beginning to detach and chip or are detached. The tri-fold color plate in that section is completely detached and laid in. There is light off-setting from each colored plate onto the facing page (usually a blank page, so no text is marred). The volume is ex-library from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, with a stamp on the title page, a sticker on the back free end paper, and the remnant of a pocket inside the back cover. In addition, each color plate is library-stamped on the reverse. A personal bookplate of William Sturgis Bigelow, Boston surgeon and collector of Asian (especially Japanese) art. He donated his entire collection of 25,000 works of art to the MFA. The contents are bound consecutively but without original covers, as various "chapters" of a book. The original paper covers are bound together, in order, at the back of the volume.. Green gilt embossed publisher's cloth. Unpaginated, and filled with breathtaking colored chromolithographs (36 in color on single sheets, some with multiple images; one tri-fold) and other two-tone plates and images. Heavy at 7 pounds and will require extra postage. Scholarly literature on the decorative arts in India is scanty and mainly in learned journals. The Journal of Indian Art and Industries (1886-1916) is the most important and contains numerous pioneering studies. Original front and rear wraps from each issue are bound in at the rear. These covers have the contents of each issue printed on them. This is the exceedingly rare third volume of this seminal and Influential periodical on Indian arts. See article by Peter H. Hoffenberg entitled "John Lockwood Kipling, W. H. Griggs and The Journal of Indian Art and Industry" written in 2003 for a complete description of this periodical. He states: "...Kipling's and Buck's vision encouraged use of the latest photographic and reproductive innovations to ensure accurate and attractive illustrations of lasting quality. Griggs and his editorial staff took advantage of that encouragement and of the most current technology to produce exquisite color chromo- and photo-lithographs bound in leather. Black and white illustrations were also included...No doubt the publisher applied chromo-lithographic technologies from Britain and the continent, but the pages of the Journal also included illustrations resulting from innovative work in the heliogravure and collotype sections of India's own Revenue and Agriculture Department, particularly the offices devoted to the Survey of India. " The first 4 or 5 volumes of this publication seem exceedingly scarce.

Edition originale rare portant un envoi autographe signé à l'avocat et diplomate Marcellin Pellet (1849-1942), député du Gard de 1876 à 1885 : A Mr Marcellin Pellet affectueux souvenir E. Marey. « Le Mouvement reste le plus célèbre et le plus rare des ouvrages de l'auteur (bon nombre des exemplaires on été détruits dans un incendie). Sans qu'il y paraisse, Étienne-Jules Marey (1830-1904) a transfiguré le réel le plus immédiat. En capatnt le mouvement pour mieux enregistrer les phénomènes vivants, il est parvenu à transcrire une idée du temps en termes d'espace - sans jamais prendre la trajectoire pour le mouvement. Modernité d'une pensée et d'une démarche où s'enracineront sciences, arts et techniques, d'où naîtra en une vision du monde particulièrement féconde toute la symbolique visuelle du siècle à venir. » Bel exemplaire. En français dans le texte, 318.

        From the Virginia Plantation to the National Capitol: Or the First and Only Negro Representative in Congress from the Old Dominion

      Hartford, CT: American Publishing Company, 1894. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. 8vo. Complete. Sound binding with some minor wear including a cracked rear hinge. Fascinating autobiography. Langston, born free in 1829 as the youngest son of a Louisa County plantation owner and his emancipated true love, lived with his siblings in the big house until his parents' death in 1834. At that time, the children, whose inheritance was substantial, moved to Ohio to live with abolitionist friends. Langston graduated from Oberlin College and studied law under the tutelage of Republican Congressman Philemon Bliss. Langston became one of the first black men ever to hold public office in the United States when he won the election to a town clerk position in Ohio, and he became the first African-American elected to the U.S. Congress from Virginia during Reconstruction in 1888. He also served as the first dean of the law school at Howard University and the first president of what is now Virginia State University.

The hand coloured plates are duplicated, appearing in the uncoloured state also, suggesting some intentional collaboration between the publisher, the binder, and Miss Cardew.

Cardew was associated with the Guild of Women Bookbinders, which was the sister bindery to the Hampstead Bindery, both set up by Frank Karslake. David Nutt was British publisher notable for its concentrated output of editions collecting myth, legend and fairy tale.

        Cheret, Jules - Palais de Glace.

      Kleurenlithografie uit 1894 ontworpen door Jules Chéret. Gesigneerd in de druk rechtsonder.Gedrukt door Chéret"s drukkerij Chaix. Dit blad is een verkleining van het op de straten van Parijs hangende affiche en verscheen als bijlage van de Courier Français.Jules Roques, de eigenaar van Le Courier Français, was een van de grootste aanhangers van het werk van Chéret. Op een gegeven moment huurde Roques het enorme gordijn van het Theatre des Ambassadeurs, een van de grootste muziek hallen in Paris, en behing dit van boven tot onder met affiches van Chéret, met daarboven de naam van zijn blad. Ook gaf hij regelmatig affiches uit als bijlagen van zijn Courier Français, kleiner van formaat maar van de zelfde kwaliteit.De geneugten van Parijs zijn nergens zo evident als in de affiches gemaakt voor het Palais de Glace. Chéret ontwierp het ene meesterwerk na het andere voor hét ijs paleis van de Belle Epoque. Op dit affiche zien we een van zijn statuesque "Chérettes"' over het ijs zwieren, de toeschouwer kan weinig anders doen dan haar bewonderen.In 1894 opent het Palais de Glace haar deuren aan de Champs Elysées. Behalve voor de ijsbaan, gaat men er naar toe om te zien en gezien te worden. Het wordt the-place-to-be in Parijs. Ook in Brussel, Wenen, Londen en elders in Europa worden dergelijke schaatspaleizen geopend.In de 20e eeuw verliest het Palais de Glace gaandeweg haar aantrekkingskracht en moet in 1980 sluiten. Anno 2008 is in het monumentale gebouw het Théatre du Rond-Point gevestigd.Prijs: € 1.250,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        THE YELLOW BOOK - An Illustrated Quarterly (1894-1897 13 volumi tutto il pubblicato), LONDON, Mathews & Lane, 1894

      1894. 16,5 x 20, bella e raffinata legatura editoriale in giallo, con piatti e dorsi figurati, tutti sono in buone condizioni, molti fogli sono ancora chiusi e tutte le tavole fuori testo sono protette da veline. Il colore giallo delle copertine venne scelto VOLUTAMENTE dall'editore per dare un tocco di "trasgressione" ai lettori "dell'Inghilterra puritana di fine '800" (Anche le "donnine" veneziane vestivano di giallo) Questa famosa rivista artistica inglese ha avuto una storia polemica che ha coinvolto l'amicizia tra BEARDSLEY AUBREY 1871-1898 (Il quale ha illustrato magistralmente alcune copertine delle prime 4 annate ed anche con num. tav. fuori testo all'interno, in tutti i primi 4 volumi, precedente la sua scomparsa) e OSCAR WILDE. Beardsley aveva in precedenza illustrato il famoso testo "Salomè" per Wilde, e le cronache del tempo non sono proprio categoriche nel sottilineare "l'amichevole frequentazione", ma l'opinione pubblica aveva già emesso la sentenza. I giornali del tempo riferiscono che quando Wilde venne arrestato ed imprigionato, chiese di passare dal suo studio, dove ritirò un volume di The Yellow Book e con esso sottobraccio entro' in carcere (anche per sottolineare pubblicamente l'ammirazione per la rivista stessa). Prescindendo da questi riferimenti, la rivista è di ottima qualità sia per le illustrazioni di altri valenti artisti (decine di tav. f.t.) che i contributi letterari (Beerbohm, John Buchan, Elia D'Arcy, Joh Davidson, Richard Garnett ed altri.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Paris, 7. V. 1894.

      1894. 4 SS. (Doppelblatt, im Falz durchgerissen). 8vo. An einen unbekannten Adressaten, der ihn nach seinen "inneren Beziehungen zur Musik" befragt hatte: "Hochgeehrter Herr, Wenn ich Ihre Frage nach meinen inneren Beziehungen zur Musik erschöpfend beantworten wollte, müßte ich Ihnen eigentlich eine bis ins Einzelne gehende Geschichte meines Lebens und Selbstcharakteristik liefern, da die Musik thatsächlich mit meinem ganzen geistigen Werden und Sein auf das Innigste verflochten ist. Ich beschränke mich darauf, Ihnen zu sagen, daß das Schöne mir zuerst in musikalischer Gestalt entgegengetreten ist. Mein erstes Gedicht schrieb ich, zwölf Jahre alt, nachdem ich die Mondschein-Sonate gehört hatte, die man mir, auf meine ungestüme Bitte, dreimal hintereinander hatte vorspielen müssen. Als ich, fünfzehn Jahre alt, Mozarts 'Don Juan' zum erstenmal hörte, floh der Schlaf mich drei Nächte lang und ich glaubte fortwährend die Orchesterbegleitung zum Auftreten der Statue des Kommandeurs zu hören. Ich glaube nicht, daß ich jemals eine Aufführung der Neunten Symphonie versäumt habe, wenn sie an meinem Wohnort stattfand; und doch fürchte ich sie eigentlich, denn sie wühlt mich in allen Tiefen so furchtbar auf, daß ich tagelang nicht zur Ruhe komme; so wirkt sie noch heute auf mich, obschon ich jeden Takt von ihr auswendig kann. Ich führe ein Leben des Kampfes und erfahre viel Bitteres und Schmerzliches. Es gibt aber die Empörung, den Zorn, die Kränkung nicht, die nicht sofort verschwänden, wenn mir meine Schwester ein Lied von Schumann, etwa 'Ich grolle nicht' oder 'Aus meinen Thränen sprießen' singt. Alle Gemeinheit der Menschen ist dann vergessen, mein eigenes Ich löst sich in Liebe und Wollaut [!] und mir ist, als wäre ich auf irgend einem Stern, himmelweit von allen Leidenschaften und Interessen, die sonst das Gewebe meines Daseins bilden. Aus der Musik quellen mir unvergleichliche Tröstungen und Anregungen. Der Drang, den wogenden, unbestimmten Emotionen, welche die Musik in mir wachruft, eine feste Form zu geben, hat oft genug meinem Schaffen die Richtung gewiesen. Um nur ein Beispiel anzuführen: mein Roman 'Die Krankheit des Jahrhunderts' ist wesentlich aus der Stimmung hervorgegangen, in die mich einmal das unter eigenthümlichen Umständen gehörte Lied 'Freut euch des Lebens' versetzt hat. Um meine Anschauungen kurz zusammenzufassen: ich würde es, trotz meiner mannigfachen anderen geistigen Interessen, für die erschreckendste Verarmung meines Lebens halten, wenn ich auf Musik verzichten müßte. Glauben Sie, hochgeehrter Herr, an die vorzügliche Hochachtung Ihres ergebensten Dr. M. Nordau". - Nordau war seit 1892 Mitstreiter Herzls; seit 1880 wohnte er als praktischer Armenarzt und Gynäkologe in Paris. 1897 Organisator des Basler ersten Zionistenkongresses, war er Hauptautor des sog. Basler Programms und eine der führenden Gestalten der frühen zionistischen Bewegung. - In lila Tinte; kleine Randeinrisse.

      Washington, 1894. vi,[2],683pp. plus twenty-five maps (three of them large, colored, folding maps) and 203 plates, consisting of twenty in color (two folding), twenty-five uncolored lithographs, and 158 photographic plates. Large, thick quarto. Modern three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Several small tears to edges of leaves, light scattered soiling and wear. Very good. One of the most important and exhaustive treatments of the American Indian in the 19th century. As American Indians had not been treated in detail in previous censuses, it was decided under the administration of Superintendent Robert Porter to prepare this mammoth undertaking, which pays scrupulous, detailed attention to the present state of the American Indian of the times. Included are discussions of Indian populations by state, status reports concerning life on the reservations, disbursement of populations on and off reservations, progress in schooling and employment, etc. Virtually every aspect of the topic is at least considered in this work, if not investigated in depth. The highly prized lithograph color plates of Indian life by noted artists are the best such works undertaken in a government publication, and are of exceptional quality. The scores of photographic plates show tribal leaders, delegations, homes, schools, food preparation, craft making, artifacts, etc., and provide an outstanding visual catalogue of the tribes near the turn of the 20th century.

        Climbing and Exploration in the Karakoram - Himalayas. With illustrations by A.D. McCormick.

      THE FIRST MAJOR ATTEMPT TO EXPLORE THE KARAKORAM. CONWAY, William Martin Climbing and Exploration in the Karakoram - Himalayas. With illustrations by A.D. McCormick. T. Fisher Unwin, 1894. 3 Volumes bound in 4. Large 8vo. pp. xix, 360: xv, 361 - 709: viii, 126; portrait frontispiece in vol. 1, 300 illustrations plus duplicate proofs, 3 folding maps in separate volume. All volumes uniformly bound in beige cloth, maroon morocco labels, text volumes slight darkening to spines; a Very Good set. Number 73 of 150 Copies Signed by the Author. William Conway (1856 - 1937) developed an interest in mountaineering whilst at Cambridge and became a member of the Alpine Club in 1877. Although a typical Victorian in his wide ranging interests, he was a keen bibliophile and a lover of the fine arts, later becoming Roscoe Professor of Art at University College, Liverpool. Conway was in no sense an amateur climber. He took as his model Edward Whymper's expedition to the Great Andes of the Equator, which had already demonstrated how a scientific mountaineering expedition should be organised, and the importance Conway attached to the separately published scientific reports clearly reflects this ambition. As W.A.B. Coolidge observed in the Pall Mall Gazette: "The book is not merely the narrative of the best organised and most successful mountaineering expedition as yet made, it is a most valuable and minute account, based on first-hand evidence, of a most fascinating region of the heaven-soaring Himalayas." A scarce account of a remarkable achievement. Neate C103; Yakushi C143.

      1894. Large 8vo. 21, (1) pp., final blank. Modern green leather binding with red marbled endpapers. Rare French consular report on the manufactures and commerce of Persia (now Iran), providing a detailed account of the region's principal produce in the late 19th century. Among the principal commodities imported to Persia are coffee (from Arabia), pearls (from the pearl banks of Bahrain), and - remarkably - petroleum (from Russia). A British exploration company is said to be prospecting for oil in the country, but "so far without any practical result": only in 1908 would large quantities of oil be discovered at Masjed Soleyman (today, Iran possesses the world's fourth-largest oil reserves). Exports include dried fruits and opium as well as pearls and mother-of-pearl (largely also originating from Bahrein). Imports from France are said to be virtually nil, and a lengthy paragraph is devoted to the means by which commerce with the Gulf might be boosted. - Paper browned and brittle, rebound with repairs to gutter; title page slightly cracked..

        Pithecanthropus erectus. Eine menschenaehnliche Uebergangsform aus Java. Mit Zwei tafeln und Drei in den Text gedruckten Figuren. [AND] An original photo of the type locality at Trinil, Java, most probably by Eugène Dubois himself.

      Batavia, Landesdruckerei, 1894. Large 4to (32.2 x 25.9 cm). Title page, [ii], 31 pp., two plates (one with photos of a skull, the other a tinted lithograph of bones), two text engravings. Blind quarter cloth over original printed boards.= Unique dedication copy of the true first edition of this ground breaking work in human evolution, being the first unambiguous record of "the missing link", a human species decidedly older and more primitive than Homo sapiens, based on well-preserved fossils found at Trinil near the Bengawan [Bengavian] Solo river in east-central Java. The Dutch anatomist, anthropologist and palaeontologist Marie Eugène François Thomas Dubois (1858-1940) was the first to deliberately search for hominid fossils, and the first to be successful at it. Dubois' discovery was proof that humans were as much the subject of evolution as any other animal or plant. This edition precedes the edition from "Jaarboek van het Mijnwezen" and its offprint, which were both published in 1895. Dubois immediately realized the great importance of his discovery and could not wait for the "Jaarboek" to be published, let alone for a thorough description of all the mammalian fossils found at the Trinil site. In the preface, dated January 1894, Dubois stated "Für die Abfassung einer einigermaassen vollständigen Beschreibung ist die Vergleichung der gesammelten Fossilien mit ähnlichen Sammlungen, namentlich in europäischen Museen... erforderlich - und so wird die Veröffentlichung jener Beschreibung und der in mancher Beziehung wichtigen allgemeineren Untersuchungsergebnisse wahrscheinlich nog längere Zeit ausbleiben müssen. Die in der vorliegende Abhandlung beschriebene Form is jedoch von zo ganz besonderem Interesse, und giebt zu Schlüssen von so grosser und allgemeiner Bedeutung Anlass, dass... sie schon jetzt zu bearbeiten und der Oeffentlichkeit zu überlieferen". It took Dubois and his fossils many years to convince the majority of the scientific world of the importance of these findings, and today it is universally regarded as a cornerstone in human palaeontology and evolution. This edition was printed at and published by the "Landesdruckerei" [actually Landsdrukkerij in Batavia, or modern day Jakarta]. Very few copies of this edition are known to exist. Provenance: on the front free endpaper, Dubois wrote in a neat hand "Met broederlijke groet van den schrijver" [with brotherly regards from the author]. An oblong albumen print (11.8 x 15.8 cm) of the Bengawan Solo river, cutting through the Pleistocene deposits in which P. erectus was found, has been inserted. In the left lower centre is a white tent, most probably of Dubois's team, adjacent to a cliff with outcrops of sediment layers. On the photo verso "vindplaats Pithecanthropus" [type locality of Pithecanthropus] is written in an old hand. A unique copy - inscribed by the author to his brother - with an original photograph. See Garrison-Morton, 210.
