      n.d., n.p. - An excellent single page (5" x 7-1/2"), 23 lines with corrections, apparently removed from the 1895 Manuscript Edition of his collected works, here with the limitation page only from that set mentioning the page of manuscript. It is numbered "69" here but is actually page 45 of the finished book, the text from Chapter 7 titled "Columbus before the council at Salamanca," which describes Columbus's first appearance before the assembly of university professors and church dignitaries that were brought together to pass judgment on Columbus's proposition to sail westward to India. The council brought up many objections, primarily based on Scripture and incorrect scientific assumptions. For example, one objection was that even if Columbus were to reach India, the rotundity of the globe would present a kind of mountain that would make it impossible for Columbus to sail back up to return to Spain. One of the council members convinced by Columbus's reasoning was Diego de Deza. The manuscript here begins with a mention of him. In full: [Diego de Deza was] "an able and erudite man, above the narrow bigotry of bookish lore, and could appreciate the value of wisdom, even when uttered by unlearned lips. He seconded Columbus with all his powers and influence, and by their united efforts, they brought over several of the most intelligent men of the assembly. Still there was a preponderating mass of inert bigotry and learned pride in the erudite body, which refused to yield to the demonstrations of an obscure foreigner, without fortune or connexions, or any academic honours. After this celebrated examination of Columbus, the board held occasional conferences, but without coming to any decision; Fernando de Talavera, to whom the matter was especially entrusted, had too little esteem for it, and was too much occupied by the stir and bustle of public concerns, to press it to a conclusion; his departure with the court from Cordova, early in the." The remainder of that sentence, not present in this manuscript: "spring of 1487, put an end to the consultations, and left Columbus in a state of the most tantalizing suspense." Laid down on a slightly larger piece of paper. Fine and an important manuscript page from one of Irving's most celebrated works

        Seventeen Trips Through Somaliland. A Record of Exploration & Big Game Shooting, 1885 to 1893.

      Rowland Ward London first edition 1895 - Small quarto; xx,386p,[2]. 2 maps and all illustrations checked and present. In the original pale brown buckram covers which are now substantially browned, a common feature of the Rowland Ward buckram from this period. The spine is very browned indeed, not quite obscuring the leettering, and there is wear to the spine ends. Corners sl bumped. Internally the book is clean and very good indeed. The browning and sl wear to the cover of this book reduces it to a Good copy only, but all joints and hinges are sound. One of the truly great hunting books of the period, and hunting bibliographer Czech gives it a substantial write up as follows : "An excellent game shot, Swayne described his seventeen journeys into Somaliland's interior from 1884 to 1893. He hunted elephant near the Golis Range, Jallo, and the Sobt River in 1887. Five years later, while on reconnaissance near the Abyssinian border, he bagged rhinoceros near Toeli. In 1893, Swayne collected Leopard and oryx while journeying to Harar. Later near the Webbe Sheldeh River, he hunted rhino, lion, leopard and elephant. He also relates an interesting incident in hunting hyena with knife and pistol. In the Golis Range, he successfully stalked trophy kudu. On a second journey to the Webbe Shebleh, he bagged bushbuck, leopard and lion. An Important work of sport and exploration." czech, p161-2. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Chrysanthemum leucanthemum [Chrysanthemum]

      Braunschweig: Friedrich Viewig & Sons, 1895. Colour-printed lithograph. Discreet ink stamp in the lower right corner of the plate. Good condition apart from some overall light soiling, mild rippling. A rare, vividly coloured plate from 'Anschauungstafeln fuer den Unterricht in der Pflanzenkunde', Friedrich Oskar Pilling's detailed series of botanical teaching posters. Botanical posters such as this were primarily used by German university instructors during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to teach courses in botany and phytopharmacy. They were also sometimes used in high school biology classes. Typically, they were hung on the walls of a classroom or lecture hall where the teacher could refer to them during the course of a lecture. The particular series from which this plate comes most likely illustrates the complete system of flowering plants as well as the most common and significant species of the major plant families. Although occasionally printed as a series and issued by a major publisher such as Viewig & Sons, these didactic posters were frequently individually hand-made and hand-painted. They are rarely used today, and can usually only be found in university archives, libraries, and botanical museums.

        The Architectural History of Harrow Church Derived from a Study of the Building

      Harrow, England: Wilbee, J. C. , 1895. Contemporary full morocco binding of a dark brown color, and with hubbed spine in six panels. Boards with gilt rules and small gilt decorative motifs, and with small diaper design in blind to the fields. Spine states, in fairly crisp, gilt-stamped letters, "Harrow Church, Gardner." Spine with elaborate and crisp gilt-stamped design. Generally unbumped spine head and tail and with slightly bumped lower corners, The leather binding is exceptionally clean and almost entirely free of scratches, and with minor rubbing along the gutters. The spine is lightly and evenly sunned to a medium brown color. The text block is firmly bound in. 9.25 x 6 inches. With handsome marbled paper pastedowns and FEPs. T.E.G. With xii and 95 numbered pages, including an introduction, the main text, a glossary of technical terms employed, and a postscript. With XL full-page B&W plates plus Plate XLI, a pristine pull-out architectural ground plan of the church, The Church of S. Mary Harrow on the Hill. Also with 15 additional B&W illustrations. We can find no foxing or other blemishes, save for an instance of off-setting. The book is astonishingly clean overall. Front pastedown with the stunning late 19th century armorial bookplate of Harrow School, including the motto "stet fortvna domvs." Near the top of the bookplate is written in a neat ink hand, "E. W. Swan, Term prize for Drawing, 1900' given May 31st, 1900." Hence a presentation copy. Off-setting between p. 72 and the opposite plate, likely due to insertion of a newspaper clipping or similar. Neatly pasted on to a blank rear FEP is a newspaper clipping, "Harrow Church 850 Years Old." Above the clipping in a neat ink hand is, "Times, Jan. 17th 1944." Neatly pasted on to the opposite blank rear FEP is a B&W photo of Harrow Church, doubtless from the same newspaper article. Finally, neatly pasted on to the rear pastedown is a very small -- and somewhat bizarre -- news magazine clipping, "A Railway Victim." The clipping pertains to an interesting gravestone in Harrow-on-the-Hill churchyard regarding a hapless man who was run over and killed by a railway train in 1833, shortly after rail was introduced to Harrow and vicinity. Else a very clean copy. A Very Good copy. Scarce in any condition. An altogether engaging and handsome volume and a pleasure to hold in hand.. First Edition. Full-Leather. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

        Lebendes Affentheater [The Monkey's Moveable Theater]

      1895. first edition. A Very Scarce 'Circus Monkeys' Moveable Book by Lothar Meggendorfer"Considered the Creator and Chief Innovator of Moveable Toy Books"[MOVABLE BOOK]. MEGGENDORFER, Lothar. Lebendes Affentheater [The Monkey's Moving Theater]. Ein Ziehbilderbuch von Lothar Meggendorfer [A Moveable Picture-Book]. Esslingen: Verlag von F.F. Schreiber, [1895]. First Edition in German.Oblong folio ( x inches; x mm.). [17], [1, advertisement] pp. Lithographed preface and eight full-page chromolithographed plates (included in pagination), each of which has a movable tab to set the scene in motion. Each plate with a leaf of text opposite.Original quarter red cloth over boards, the front cover with a decorative pale blue border surrounding a large full-color illustration of two monkeys on horseback. Pale blue (blank) lower cover with water-stain (not affecting text block). Neat ink inscription on front paste-down dated 'Christmas 1898'.The leaf of advertisements mention four other Meggendorfer movables: 'Internationaler Zirkus' (International Circus); 'Schau mich an!' (Look at me); 'Daumenlang Damian'; & 'Lustiges Automatentheater' (Funny Moveable Theater).A very scarce Meggendorfer - the first time that we have seen this title.The moveable plates:1. 'Das Gastmahl' - The Banquet - Six Monkeys having a dinner party…2. 'Er und Sie' - He and She - Two Monkeys on Horseback in the Circus Ring3. 'Die Biege' - The 'Performing' Goat - The Ring Master training the Goat4. 'Das Menuett' - The Minuet - Three Monkey Musicians with Violin, Cello and Bass and two Monkey dancers5. 'Das Trio' - A Bear, Pig and a small Goat balance on a See-Saw in the Circus Ring while the audience looks on6. 'Das Vorposten' - The Guard on Horseback at the gates of the Castle7. 'Bimbambo'- The Elephant in the Circus Ring about to perform a trick whilst the audience look on8. 'Madame Pompadour' - A Monkey Madame Pompadour being carried in a Sedan Chair by two uniformed monkeys (the windows of the sedan-chair with clear 'perspex' film)Meggendorfer created all of the pictorial elements of his books himself in pen and watercolor drawings. He then assembled the book in dummy form and had outline lithographs executed, which he hand-colored to serve as guides for the color printing. ?"Meggendorfer?'s reputation today is based almost solely on his ingenious mechanical picture-books for children. These he began to design during the late 1880s, and many of these books went into multiple German editions besides translations into English, French, Italian, Spanish, Bohemian, Hungarian, and Russian. Deservedly, he is considered the creator and chief innovator of moveable toy books, and his printed works are eagerly sought after by collectors of historical children?'s literature. He produced books with moveable figures, transformation pictures segmented into three parts and thus interchangeable, books with pop-up designs, rotating wheels as well as four-panel slat pictures which change the illustrations through movement, and simply funny picture books for children that would certainly make them laugh and generally contributed to some educational benefit?" (Justin G. Schiller?'s Introduction to The Publishing Archive of Lothar Meggendorfer. Original drawings, hand-colored lithographs and production files for his children?'s book illustrations. Offered for sale by Justin G. Schiller, Ltd. (New York, 1975)).?"There is little doubt that the most elaborate and ingenious movables ever produced were those of the German Lothar Meggendorfer (1847-1925) made during the 1880s and 1890s…the mechanisms and operations of Meggendorfer?'s books—not to mention the originality of his figures—are far superior to any others published before or since. The devices that operated the various figures in Meggendorfer?'s books consisted of a series of inter-connecting cardboard levers sandwiched between the coloured illustration on the front of the oblong leaf and the dummy pasted behind it. The animated limbs and heads were cut-out models on the front of the picture, and moving the tab set the whole scene in motion?" (Haining, Movable Books, pp. 65-73).

      Titusville, Pa, 1895. Original cloth, gilt, captioned MATHER'S HISTORICAL OIL REGION VIEWS OF WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA on the front cover. Minor wear at spine ends, hinges starting. Front free endpaper a bit chipped, with edges reinforced on verso. Very good. Edwin Laurentine Drake was the first American to drill for oil, at Oil Creek, Pennsylvania, near Titusville, in 1859. Mather quickly became fascinated by Drake and the oil business, moved to Titusville, opened a photography gallery, and compiled an exhaustive photographic history of the area's oil industry over the next forty years. Collected here are twelve photographs, the majority printed in 1895 from older negatives, and captioned in the negatives by Mather. A gift inscription on the front free endpaper is from the wife of "E. Mather," presumably a descendant of the photographer. An excellent record of Mather's photographic work in Pennsylvania. Mather's work is quite scarce. A second part was issued several years after this (the last complete set we are aware of sold for $18,000).

A remarkably fine copy preserved in a green cloth chemise within a quarter green morocco slip-case. Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880) the influential French novelist, spent practically his whole life fitfully working on The Temptation of Saint Anthony (French La Tentation de Saint Antoine). He completed three versions, in 1849, 1856 (extracts published at the same time) and 1872 before publishing the final version in 1874. It takes as its subject the famous temptation faced by Saint Anthony the Great in the Egyptian desert, a theme often repeated in medieval and modern art. It is written in the form of a play script. It details one night in the life of Anthony the Great where Anthony is faced with great temptations, and it was inspired by the painting, which he saw at the Balbi Palace in Genoa. The major character in the book are: Saint Anthony: The protagonist. He is tempted by many characters and objects to stray from his belief that isolation is the truest form of worship.Ammonaria: One of his sister's friends, Anthony is drawn into a battle between his desire for her and his desire to remain holy before God in his isolation. He is distraught that he cannot control his body.King NebuchadnezzarThe Queen of Sheba: Tempts Anthony with riches, trying to evoke lust.Hilarion: Also known as Lucifer. Once Anthony's student, now he tries to tempt him away from his chosen lifestyle by creating doubt and eventually morphs into Science.Lust and Death: Lust appears as a young woman; Death, an old woman. They try to convince Anthony to give in to his desires and commit suicide.

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1895, 1895. Together 2 volumes. First editions, volume one a very early printing, the third, volume two first printing. With illustrations by J. Lockwood Kipling, W. H. Drake and P. Frenzeny. 8vo, publisher?s original polished navy blue cloth lettered and elaborately decorated in gilt on each volume, a.e.g. 212; 238, ads pp. A very bright and handsome set, the two books well matched with no fading to the blue cloth, the gilt very bright, just a touch of expected minor rubbing at the spine tips and corners, much better then typically found, internally solid and sound with only occasional and very light spotting. FIRST EDITIONS OF THESE CLASSIC WORKS. The stories of Mowgli, a human child lost in the jungles of India and raised by wild animals, struck a cord with readers who somehow found him and his animal friends easy to relate to despite the bizarre circumstances. Arguably the best loved of Kipling?s many delightful works for children and a true classic of its genre.

        Etidorhpa, Or The End of Earth. The Strange History of a Mysterious Being and the Account of a Remarkable Journey as Communicated in a Manuscript to Llewellyn Drury, Who Promised to Print the Same, But Finally Evaded the Responsibility, Which was Assumed by John Uri Lloyd

      1895 - Cincinnati: John Uri Lloyd, 1895 [1895]. Crown 8vo, [ii], frontis, xiii, 376 p., publisher's original dark green cloth with front board and spine stamped in gilt and silver, purple clay endpapers, beveled board edges and top page ends gilt. With numerous full page and in text monochrome illustrations by J Augustus Knapp throughout. The rare Author's Edition marking the true first appearance of this fantastical work of imaginative fiction, one of the greatest such works to appear in America in the late 19th century. Etidorhpa (Aphrodite spelled backwards) was written by eminent New York pharmacist and ethnobotanist John Uri Lloyd (1849-1936). It is, according to Locke "one of the most splendid of a number of opulent fantasy extravaganzas issued in America in the late 19th century", involving a journey to the center of the earth by a bearded stranger, who is accompanied by "an eyeless, sexless, nude humanoid" (Bleiler). On his voyage the protagonist (The-Man-Who-Did-It) experiences a variety of visionary and transcendental experiences, including the ability to levitate, and the sampling of "liquid from a mushroom fruit that induces astonishing dreams of Dante-like hells, with misshapen organisms and gigantic hands emergent from the ground" (Bleiler). Etidorhpa was a huge success upon its publication and went through no less than eighteen editions during the author's lifetime. It was translated into seven languages and was immensely popular abroad. This first edition bearing the publication date of 1895 on the title page is rare. Although Locke claims that the 1895 edition was published in a run of 1299 copies (the subscriber list is bound in at rear), its scarcity on the market and in institutional holdings suggests that the actual number was much smaller. Wear and fraying to corners, and to spine tips, with heavier wear to spine heel. Some light mottling and discoloration to boards, moderate wear and scuffing to board edges, with a small patch of discoloration between letters D and O in title; name in a neat hand to fep dated 1895, light occasional soiling throughout, small closed tear to top margin of Prologue; last signature and rear hinge starting gently. This copy LACKS the photogravure portrait of Etidorhpa (comprising pages 255/6) but is textually complete. A sound, VG copy of a major work of fantasy and a true rarity of the genre.

        [Photograph Album of 19th Century Czech Chemist in Mexico]: Nas domov v Mexiku. 1895. ["Our Home in Mexico"]

      Oblong octavo. Measuring 10.5" x 7.5". Period morocco album titled in gilt on the front board: "Nas domov v Mexiku. 1895. [Our Home in Mexico]". Album contains 52 gelatin silver photographs, each image 7.5" x 4.5", and each captioned in Czech. A trifle rubbed at the extremities, the album is near fine, the images are fine.An excellent photographic album kept by a Czech chemist who specialized in the production of dynamite (his business card is laid in to the album describing himelf as "Chimiste de la Dynamite Nobel") who had emigrated to Mexico from Prague. From the photographic evidence in the album it appears that Jelinek settled somewhere in central Mexico and established a chemical laboratory specializing in explosives, presumably in support of the mining trades. The domestic photographs are quite interesting and illustrate the European furnishings of a well-to-do established household. They also include some striking portrait images of the couple transformed from stodgy European fashions to classic Mexican finery complete with silk rebozo for the lady and a sombrero for the gentleman. Also included are rooftop panoramas of the unmistakably Mexican town (although it is unidentified). Other images include local domestic help, and one image of a map of Mexico on the wall.There is a section of the album devoted to showing what the makeshift explosives laboratory looked like (it occupied the upper floors of a building, probably the building within which they were domiciled). An additional loose, boudouir-size cabinet photograph by R. Barajas depicts Jelinek's grave, indicating that he died in Mexico on 1 October 1897. The images are of excellent quality, and are useful in illustrating the lives of the expatriate Czech couple living in Mexico in the late 19th Century. .

      Meadville, Pa, 1895. Half title. Frontispiece portrait. Large quarto. Modern three-quarter leather and original brown publisher's cloth, cover stamped in gilt, spine gilt, leather labels. Old ex-lib. markings on half title, titlepage, and text block edges. Some leaves with small edge tears. Minor soiling. A good copy. This is the first complete narrative of Powell's famous expedition of 1869-72, previously documented only in reports consisting largely of scientific data. Privately published, this volume contains far more information than any of the government reports of Powell's journeys, and is the best book of one of the seminal figures in the West in the late 19th century. It also contains important documentation of Powell's botanizing and collecting activities. The double-page views of the Grand Canyon are after beautiful drawings by topographical artist W.H. Holmes. This is a very elusive book, remarkable in being quite large and extensive, but privately printed and evidently issued in a very small edition. It is one of the most difficult books to find, of major textual importance, in all Western Americana.

      Leipzig, Naumman (1895-97, 1901-04) / Kröner Verlag (1910-13), 1895-1904. - Erste komplette Gesamtausgabe. Erste Ausgabe von "Nietzsche contra Wagner", des "Antichrist" und der "Gedichte" (Bd. 8), des ges. Nachlasses (Bd. 9-14), sowie der Kompilation "Der Wille zur Macht" (Bd. 15). Von einer ersten von Peter Gast geplanten und initierten Gesamtausgabe erschienen 1893 und 1894 nur 4 Werke in 5 Bänden (Unzeitgemäße Betrachtungen, Menschliches Allzumenschliches, Zarathustra u. Jenseits von Gut und Böse), die sogleich von Nietzsches Schwester zurückgezogen wurden. Herausgeber vorliegender sogenannten "zweite Gesamtausgabe" wurde ab 1894 Fritz Koegel (Bd. 1-2, 4-6, 8-12) und Eduard von der Hellen (Bd. 3, 7). 1897 wurde Fritz Koegel entlassen. Neben persönlichen Differenzen war der Grund seine Edition des Nachlasses in den B#nden 9-12 die auf Anordnung von Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche aus dem Handel zurückgezogen wurden (diese Bände liegen hier vor). Sie selbst übernahm sodann die Leitung der Herausgabe der Bände 13-15 zusammen mit Peter Gast und August Horneffer, 1901-1904. Neben den Erstausgaben dieser Gesamtausgabe sind die Erstveröffentlichungen des Nachlasses von besonderen Intersse, da sie aus Zusammenstellungen von Fragmenten unter Werktitel bestehen, die so weder von Nietzsche intendiert und ausgeführt wurden noch überhaupt in dieser Form mehr zugänglich sind (z.B. "Der Philosoph", "Die Philosophie in Bedrägnis", "Promehteus", "Die Pflugschar", "Der neue Umblick", "Die Wiederkunst des Gleichen" u.a.). Die Kompilation "der Wille zur Macht" liegt in zwei Ausgaben vor: in der Erstausgabe von 1901 (483 Aphorismen) und in der stark erweiterten, auf zwei Bände ausgehnten Fassung von 1911 (1079 Aphorismen). Die Philologica (Bd. 17-19) ebenfalls jeweils in Erstausgaben und noch in der besseren Ausstattung in der Tradition von Naumann (Halbleder, Marmorpapiervorsätze und marmorierter Schnitt). In vorliegender Form seltene Ausgabe. - Provenienz: Aus der Bibliothek von Ernst Bertram mit dessen eigenh. Besitzvermerken und Anmerkungen mit Bleistifter in den Nachlass-bänden. Später in der Bibliothek des Philosophen und Heidegger-Schülers Hartmut Buchner und des japanischen Philosophen der Kyoto-Schule Koichi Tsujimura.
