        Copper Etched Map, Nevada 1895 (12" x 9 3/8")

      Washington, D.C.: Library of Congress, 1895. While the USGS produced copper map from the 1880's to the early 1950's, we can find no evidence of any others showing the Library of Congress as the issuer of this map of Nevada (July 24, 1895), number 38260, showing them holding the copyright. This was the same year Nevada authorized its first public library). We find no reference to this map in OCLC or any of the universities in the West. Unlike the limited issues made much later in Arizona in 1980 of the state's centennial of major mining centers, which were then issued for $650 each to Civil Engineers, this would appear to be an unrecorded copy from 1895. Though it is clearly stated as having been copyrighted by the Library of Congress, it does not appear in their online stated holdings. The map weighs 12.5oz.

Gute Expl. - Spencer, (1820 - 1903), genoss keine formale Schulbildung und wuchs im Umkreis der Derby Philosophical Society auf, dessen Gründer Erasmus Darwin war, der Großvater von Charles. Seine Interessengebiete waren weitreichend, vorallem jedoch Philosophie, Biologie und Soziologie. Spencer entwickelte ein allumfassendes Konzept der Evolution als eine fortschreitende Entwicklung der physikalischen Welt, der biologischen Organismen, des menschlichen Gedankenguts, dessen Kultur und seiner Gesellschaften. Am bekanntesten ist Spencer durch das Konzept "survival of the fittest" geworden, welches er in seinem Buch "Principles of Biology" (1864) beschrieb, nachdem er Darwins "On the Origin of Species" gelesen hatte. Kurz vor seinem Tod wurde er für den Literaturnobelpreis vorgeschlagen (1902). Er war mit einer der einflußreichsten Philosphen im England des 19. Jahrhunderts. (Zitat) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE TIME MACHINE: AN INVENTION

      London: William Heinemann, 1895.. Small octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-151 [152], original tan cloth stamped in purple; binding measures 17.3 cm vertically; HEINEMANN at base of spine set in 14-point type; all edges trimmed; no inserted publisher's catalogue. First British edition. The Holt edition was published before the Heinemann edition and the text (presumably an earlier version of the story) differs significantly from the Heinemann edition (the better text) and from the NEW REVIEW serial. See Bergonzi, "The Publication of The Time Machine, 1894-1895," Clareson, ed., SF: The Other Side of Realism (1971), pp. 204-15. The author's first SF novel. "Many rank it as Wells's best book, certainly its qualities are striking and direct ... All time-travel stories since owe a debt to Wells, none has become so acclaimed." - Bleiler (ed), Science Fiction Writers, p. 26. "THE TIME MACHINE might be considered the first work of modern science-fiction, and it is still the classic statement of an important subgenre ... A remarkable work, and necessary reading." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 2325. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 2-161; (1981) 1-171; (1987) 1-103; (1995) 1-103; and (2004) II-1232.

        LILITH: A ROMANCE ..

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1895.. Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii [1] 2-351 [352: blank] + 32-page publisher's catalogue dated "Oct. 1895" inserted at rear, title page printed in red and black, original black cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, top and fore-edges untrimmed, white endpapers with floral pattern printed in blue. First edition. MacDonald's second and last adult fantasy novel. "It has parallels with PHANTASTES (1858) and shows the slight influence of Carroll, but it is easily the strangest product of Victorian fantasy. It is the obvious parent of Lindsay's VOYAGE TO ARCTURUS (1920) and fascinated C. S. Lewis; as an allegory of heterodox Christianity it bears an interesting relation to the works of T. F. Powys." - Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2-115. "This powerful and sombre fantasy is now regarded by many as MacDonald's greatest work, having certain affinities with PHANTASTES (1858). The author himself felt it to be God-inspired, though his wife was much troubled by it. The first edition was received either unfavorably or in silence, the praise of another master of fantasy, H. G. Wells, being an honourable exception." - Shaberman. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1068. Bleiler (ed), Supernatural Fiction Writers: Fantasy and Horror, pp. 243-45. Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p, 605. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 146. Schlobin, The Literature of Fantasy 700. Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature II, pp. 880-86.

Cloth lightly worn at spine ends and corner tips, corner tips a bit soft, mild string mark to center fore-edge from bundling, a very good copy. Unlike the 1895 Dodd, Mead U.S. edition, this UK edition is uncommon. (#130617)

        BLAKE OF THE "RATTLESNAKE" OR THE MAN WHO SAVED ENGLAND: A STORY OF TORPEDO WARFARE IN 189-...

      London: Tower Publishing Company Limited,. 1895. original pictorial gray-green cloth, front panel stamped in red and black, spine panel stamped in gold.. Touch of rubbing to cloth at head and tail of spine and corner tips,. free endpapers a bit darkened, a very bright, tight, near fine copy.. A exceptional copy of an attractive book rarely found in this. condition. (#148891). First edition. The first of Jane's four scientific romances. An account of future sea warfare by a naval authority and future compiler of yearly catalogues of ships and aircraft. "War against France and Russia in torpedo-carrying ships, with love melodrama around hero. He dies saving England, after her fleet has been destroyed because of coal miners' strike. Bloody-minded anti civilian militarism." - Suvin, Victorian Science Fiction in the UK, p. 61. "I would say one final word to those who object to these 'future war yarns,' on the grounds that they are likely to set other nations, at present friendly to us, by the ears. Foreign writers are frequently turning out similar stories, describing the utter destruction of the British Navy by their own; yet I never heard of any of us bearing them ill- will for it. May our Warfare of the Future long be confined to the pages of books; as, indeed, it will be, so long as foreign nations know that we are ready to tackle the lot of them if need be." - (from the author's "preface") The author's illustrations are quite interesting from an artistic point of view and, especially in the scenes of nocturnal combat, have an impressionistic quality, a touch of Turner.

      Nashville: Haley & Florida, 1895. 1st ed. Hardcover. Very Good. frontis, photos, ills, xiv, 640p. Cloth. 25cm. Original floral endpapers. Relatively minor fraying at ends of backstrip and on cover corners. In addition to this impressive work, Haley wrote and published another "race" book ("Sparkling Gems of Race Knowledge Worth Reading") in 1897 and a religious work ("From Darkness into Light; or, Bible Mysteries Unfolded") in 1911. The latter work appears to argue that death rather than eternal damnation is the penalty for sin. A helpful librarian at the Nashville Public Library advised us that neither Haley nor co-publisher Florida are identified with a "(c)" in the Nashville city directories of the period -- an identification used to indicate that the listed person was "colored." Haley is identified in the census of 1900 as white.

        Eine Neue Art von Strahlen; Eine neue Art von Strahlen. II. Mittheilung (Fortsetzung und Schluss)

      Wurzburg: K. Hof, 1895. FIRST EDITIONS. Original printed wrappers, with the ownership signature of Dr. H. Michaelis (?) on front wrapper. Preserved in a folding clamshell box. PMM, 380. First edition of the first published reports on the sensational discovery of X-rays -- a form of light invisible to the eye which had never before been observed. With remarkable insight, Röntgen first suspected a new phenomenon while investigating the florescence produced near a Crookes tube in late 1895. He immediately began a thorough set of experiments that revealed the uses of the new ray for science and medicine. Hundreds of articles and books on the new Röntgen-rays were published in the year following their discoverer's announcement. Röntgen (1845-1923), a German physicist, was awarded the first Nobel Prize in physics in 1901. His research spanned nearly all the branches of physics, from work with gases and solutions to investigations of the electromagnetic theory of Maxwell.

Printed by Oxley & Son, printers to the Queen, High Street, Windsor. Bound by R. Ingalton Drake, Eton and London, active 1869-1895. NOT ex-library. Oblong, approximately 10 x 13 inches. Bound in three-quarter oxblood morocco, the leather mostly rubbed back, with gilt rules to the boards and with highly polished black leatherette boards, with crisp gilt-stamped emblem and lettering to the front board. The black boards much rubbed and gouged, especially around the edges. About a 1/2 inch loss at the spine tail. Hinges starting but still holding quite nicely. Gorgeous period marbled paper on the pastedowns and FEPs. Hubbed spine. Very rubbed and abraded corners. A.E.G. With 43 numbered pages, and with 24 full-page B&W plates as well as 5 pasted-in color ephemera, all on coated stock. Occasional fingering marks in the margins. Almost all pages with moderate age-yellowing at the outer edges, not into the text or the plates. No remainder marks. On the verso of the front FEP, in very faded ink, a stamp reading, "Bertrand Smith, Acres of Books, Pacific Avenue, Long Beach, CA." Else a very clean copy. A Very Good Minus copy. Very scarce in any condition. Worthy of conservation/rebinding. According to the website Cheshire Bloodhounds, "Drag hunting is fox hunting, minus the fox. Drag hunting first developed as a way to test foxhounds, but it had turned into its own sport by the middle of the 19th century. Army officers enjoyed the faster-paced drag hunt at least as far back as 1863; even today, the military has a pack of drag hounds. The sport is reliant on the goodwill and cooperation of landowners and farmers." The book's narrative begins, "The Battalion arrived at Windsor from Uffington at the end of manoeuvres, On September 16th, 1893. The following day being Sunday, a well-attended levee was held at the Kennels, and a list of names being provided by Caley, attempts were made to fit them to various hounds.". First British Edition. Three-Quarter Leather. Very Good Minus. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Limited Edition.

        Young Pennsylvania woman's travel journal-scrapbook documenting her tour of Europe

      Europe, 1895. Canvas. Very good. This leather-trimmed, canvas-covered journal measures approximately 6' X 7" and contains approximately 130 pages of text, tickets, clippings, photographs, letterheads, pressed flowers, and other ephemera. All of the ephemera is attached, some pasted down and some tipped in. Sound binding with clean pages. Some minor wear and soiling to the cover. The written text is clear and bold. Some of the ephemera has folds, creases, and edge wear. McKnight was a single, 28-year old young woman from a prominent Pittsburgh family, the daughter of Charles McKnight, an author and newspaper owner. McKnight's journal begins on 23 March 1895 in Rome and concludes with a letter home written in Paris on 2 July. In between are detailed accounts of her travel though Italy, the Vatican, France, Switzerland, Germany, Gibraltar, and Spain including descriptions of countryside, cathedrals, museums, cities, events, hotels and people she visited along the way. There are approximately 80 small (1.25" x 1.5" to 2.25" x 3.75") photographs and/or photographic reproductions interspersed throughout to illustrate her daily writing, along with illustrated hotel letterheads, a complimentary ticket to visit the Vatican Apostolic Palace, the calling card of the U. S. Ambassador to Italy, assorted tickets and programs, a multi-page "Cook's Special Ticket" for Madrid and Seville, a colorful passenger list for voyage on the Norddeutscher Lloyd ship Kaiser Wilhelm II from Genoa to Gibraltar, a pair of visa-like tickets permitting McKnight to stay in Gibraltar, an elaborate Wagon-Lits ticket from Seville to Madrid, a colorful bullfight ticket, pressed flowers, a pair of color illustrations showing a train compartment set up for morning and night, etc. A very nice illustrated record of an independent young woman's three-month travel adventure in Europe.

        Manon Opéra Comique en 5 Actes et 6 Tableaux de MM. Henri Meilhac & Philippe Gille. Nouvelle Edition. [Piano-vocal score]

      Au Ménestrel [PNs H. et. Cie. 7067.; G.H. 1386.], Paris 1895 - Large octavo. Half brown leather with marbled boards, dark orange title label gilt to spine, with original publisher's stiff decorative wrappers printed in black and gold bound in. 1f. (half title), 1f. (dedication), 1f. (title), [i] (named cast list, including Marie Heilbronn and [Jean-Alexandre] Talazac), [ii] (description of scenes), [i] (blank), 344 pp. musicWith autograph musical quotation signed by the composer dated November 24, 1909 to title.Slightly browned and soiled; first two leaves reinforced with paper tape to inner margin; former owner's bookplate to verso of two leaves; publisher's hand stamp to cast list; slight offsetting of autograph to blank verso of dedication; lower joint split prior to final leaf. First performed in Paris at the Opéra-Comique on January 19, 1884. Libretto based on Antoine-François Prévost's novel L'histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut (1731).Although an early work, Manon may be Massenet's best-known and most popular opera. "The designation ?opéra comique' is misleading: there are only a few lines of spoken dialogue. But in their place there is much mélodrame, faultlessly handled at a technical level. In the final analysis Manon is by way of being a ?highlights' opera, lacking the cohesion and economy of more mature Massenet works, but those highlights were seldom surpassed in the composer's oeuvre."

        The Time Machine.

      London: Heinemann, 1895.. FIRST EDITION. Pp.[viii]; 152; [32], advertisements. Publisher's oatmeal cloth titled and decorated in purple to both covers, with untrimmed edges (Currey's State 'A'). Later catalogue at rear in 32 pages, with 'Manxman' to p.3 (earlier ads begin with 'Manx Man' ad). Copies are also noted with no ads present. No inscriptions, internally clean, moderate wear to cloth, spine a shade darkened. A very good copy indeed. With its central theme of social degeneration, The Time Machine is a key early example of the Dying Earth genre, containing a bleak vision of the End of Time through the exhaustion of our planet. 6,000 were printed of which only 1,500 were bound in cloth (rather than softcovers) as here.
