Jean Geiser (1848-1923), was born in Switzerland, moving to Algiers with his parents as a child. In the late 1860s he set up a studio on rue Bab-Azoun, where he established an excellent business as a jobbing photographer, advertising here on the title page that undertakes portraiture, people and ships, and undertakes photogravure printing of menus, post-cards, stationery. He is probably best remembered now for his typically erotic ethnographic images, which were highly successfully issued as post-cards.

        Ã‰tudes d'économie sociale.

      Lausanne & Paris: F. Rouge, F. Pichon,, 1896. Theorie de la répartition de la richesse sociale. Octavo. Original green wrappers lettered in black, professionally rebacked preserving the original spine. Housed in a custom solander box, with green morocco label lettered in gilt. 3 diagrams, one folding. Leaf edges lightly toned; an excellent copy. First edition of one of Walras's major contributions to his economico-social doctrine, based on lectures which he held at the University of Lausanne during the years of 1870 through 1892. "As far as pure theory is concerned, Walras is in my opinion the greatest of all economists" (Schumpeter in: Blaug, Great economists before Keynes, p. 264). In this work, as well as in his Etudes d'Economie politique appliquée (1898), Walras's main interest in pure theory (which he had earlier presented in Eléments d'Economie politique pure, 1874-77), shifted to issues of applied economics and social economics which actually was a revival of the activity he began when he was young.

        Argon, a New Constituent of the Atmosphere--with rare 19th c dustjacket

      The Hodgkins Fund. City of Washington, Smithsonian Institution. 1896. Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge. - The Hodgkins Fund. City of Washington, Smithsonian Institution. 1896. Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge. 1033. 4to., [4], 43 pp., 5 text figures. Brilliant copy in the original green cloth with blind stamping and gilt stamps. Also: this copy comes with the rare, original, dust jacket. (There are few scientific works published in the 19th century issued with dust jackets.) Condition: book, very fine; dust jacket has some dusting, some tears and chips around edges, but is fresh, and Very Good. Provenance: Library of Congress, with their "surplus/duplicate" stamp on front free endpaper. This is the first edition published in the U.S., following the very rare offprint of 1894 and the Phil Trans appearance of 1895. First edition, announcing the discovery of the first inert gas, the work (largely) leading to the Nobel Prize in physics for Rayleigh and the Nobel for chemistry for Ramsay in 1904. And from "The Discovery of Argon: a Case of Learning from Data?", by Aris Spanos in Philosophy of Science ,Vol. 77, No. 3, July 2010: "In 1904, Lord Rayleigh (1842–1919) and his collaborator Sir William Ramsay (1852–1916) were awarded the Nobel Prize in physics and chemistry, respectively, primarily for their role in the discovery of argon, an inert gas in the atmosphere. The averse reaction to this discovery by Mendeleev (1834–1907) might have been the main reason for his not being awarded the Nobel prize in chemistry in 1906." "The discovery of argon resulted from a careful unraveling of an empirical discrepancy, initially detected by Rayleigh when measuring the density of nitrogen gas produced by two different procedures. After a long trial‐and‐error process based on a carefully designed sequence of experiments and guided by an informal (by today’s standards) analysis of the resulting data Rayleigh and Ramsay reached the conclusion that the atmospheric air contains argon, a hitherto unknown element." And this: "Rayleigh and Ramsey had noted that nitrogen obtained from the air had a density greater than that of nitrogen liberated from its compounds by about one-half percent. This led to the isolation of the first of the inert gases which they called argon. In the following year Ramsay found another, helium, in the mineral clevite, altho this had been noted in the sun’s spectrum by Lockyar in 1868. In four years, 1894-8, five new gases, including neon, krypton and xenon had been discovered. These form a distinct group in the periodic table; all have zero valency.” [Dibner].

        The Indian Captive a Narrative of the Adventures and Sufferings of Matthew Brayton, in His Thirty-Four Years of Captivity Among the Indians of North-Western America

      Fostoria, Ohio: The Gray Printing Company. Very Good. 1896. Second Edition. Hardcover. 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 5 3/4" x 4 1/4". Original publisher's white boards with red imprint. [Front free endpaper leaf], [Title page], [Copyright page], [Preface], [blank], [5], 6-70, [blank leaf], [rear free endpaper leaf]. 2nd edition of this fantastic captivity story that is allegedly scarcer than the first edition of 1860 printed in Cleveland. In September 1825, 7 year old Matthew Brayton disappeared from the village of Wyandot in northwestern Ohio while walking with his brother to get supplies for his family. In the early years of his captivity, he was repeatedly traded to different tribes for various amounts of whiskey. Around the age of 16, he was traded by the Siouxs to the Snakes during the celebration of a truce in exchange for 11 gallons. He traveled with the Snakes, ultimately ending up in California where they stayed for 5 years. While in California, he interacted with the Diggers and describes their peculiarities. He also describes his numerous visits to San Francisco, then known as "Yerba Buena". After 5 years in California, the Snakes left for Utah and continued north towards Oregon. They then traveled further north "beyond the territory of the United States" where the Snakes allied with the Copper Heads. Brayton describes Copper Head and Snake culture in great detail, from childbirth to burial rites to division of labor. He discusses weaponry, hunting methods and vividly recounts the daily life of the tribes. In the far north, they got into skirmishes with the Esquimaux and traded with the Russians. At this point in the story, Brayton takes 8 pages to provide an exceptionally detailed account of a buffalo hunt and its aftermath. Years later, Brayton interacted with a member of the Hudson Bay Company who insisted that Brayton was white. Brayton insisted he was Native American, with Native American parents, but the persistence of the Hudson Bay man caused Brayton to question his heritage. Soon thereafter, Brayton married his chief's daughter and had two children with her. After again being told he was white by the Selkirker tribe, Brayton's chief told him he would be allowed to explore his personal history. He ultimately found out the truth and his story was told in the Cleveland Herald. The publication of that story allowed him to reunite with his brother. A scarce and compelling account in presentable condition. Howes B736. Wagner-Camp 351. Graff 394. Condition: Very good, with toned pages that are unmarked and odor free. Some offsetting to pages 52 and 53 where a triangular piece of paper once laid. Tight, solid binding with boards that are rubbed and lightly soiled. .

        ALMAYER'S FOLLY [Edward Garnett's copy]

      1896. [Edward Garnett's copy] A Story of an Eastern River. Second Edition. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1896. Original dark green cloth. First Edition, early but not first printing, of Conrad's first book. The first printing came out in 1895 (bearing that date on the title page) -- some domestic copies and some colonial; later in 1895 a second printing was issued, on thicker paper and bearing colonial ads on the half-title verso. Then there were two further printings dated 1896, one on laid paper for domestic use reading "Second Edition" (as here), and the other on wove paper reading "Colonial Edition" (but both with those colonial ads). Due to the paper used, this 1896 edition is noticeably thicker than the 1895 one; also the p. 110 missing letters are in this printing restored.~This is a near-fine copy (endpapers slightly cracked). Cagle A1a (notes).~The front endpaper of this copy bears the signature of Edward Garnett -- whose importance at this stage of Joseph Conrad's career was supreme. Conrad, after meeting the real "Olmeijer" in East Borneo in 1887, gradually produced the manuscript of this book over the six years 1889-1895. He submitted it to T. Fisher Unwin for consideration in their "Pseudonym Library", using the pseudonym "Kamudi" (Malayan for "rudder") -- enclosing the return postage, so sure was he of its rejection. However, Unwin's reader Edward Garnett saw the manuscript's promise and accepted it for non-pseudonymous publication -- and is thus credited with "discovering" Joseph Conrad the writer. By 1896, when this "second edition" came out, Garnett was actively involved with Conrad in the manuscript of Conrad's second book AN OUTCAST OF THE ISLANDS -- so much so, that some biographers have suggested that Garnett's name could have appeared as co-author on the title page.

        Portretten van Stefan George en Albert Verwey. Droge naald op Japans.

      - Beeldformaat: 15,8 x 15,8 cm. Onder passe-partout: 31,7 x 26,8 cm. Tweemaal gesigneerd in de plaat met de tekst (deels in spiegelbeeld, deels overlappend): 'Stefan George Alb. Verwey/ Stefan George/ Katwyk 19002 [sic]/ Zee'. Linksonder genummerd in potlood: '20/25'. Randen van passe-partout wat verbruind, onderaan lichte vochtschade.* Zeldzame originele ets van Toorop met een hoog literair gehalte: in 1896 maakte Toorop, nadat hij in Den Haag een lezing van George had bijgewoond, het portret van de Duitse dichter om er in 1902 het portret van Verwey aan toe te voegen. De dichters waren met elkaar bevriend; op 24 mei 1901 had George een lezing gegeven in Den Haag, waarvoor hij bij Verwey in Noordwijk kon logeren. Al in 1900 was bij Toorop, in de briefwisseling met George, het plan ontstaan voor dit dubbelportret.Deze ets is afgedrukt na de dood van Toorop, in 1928, door Ninaber van Eyben, die van verschillende etsen en houtblokken van Toorop afdrukken vervaardigde in oplagen van 10 tot 25 stuks.De zinken plaat van de ets bevindt zich in het Rijksprentenkabinet, Amsterdam.

        A scrap album containing an exceptional collection of American advertising and trade cards

      New York [and elswhere], 1896. Folio. (14 1/2 x 12 inches). Approximately 350 larger ephemeral items (and about 200 small scraps) mounted on both pastedowns and recto and verso of 22 leaves. (All leaves browned, 3 leaves split vertically, others with margins chipped, some loosely inserted). Original rose-coloured glazed paper-covered boards, lower cover blocked in blind and lettered 'Pat. March 76' in blind, the upper cover blocked in gilt with three shaped raised panels with gilt borders enclosing chromolithographic images, backstrip blocked in gilt (corners rounded, some fading to upper cover and backstrip, inner hinges broken) A spectacular album with an unusually rich assortment of advertising and trade cards, including a selection chromolithographed designs of birds after Audubon. Internal evidence suggests that the album was probably assembled by a New York State resident living just south of Rochester - possibly from near Bath, Cohocton or Canandaigua, the patent date of the album gives a 'now earlier than' date, whilst there are a number of dated items amongst the scraps, the latest being 1896. Included are a large number of cards issued by local businesses, as well as more national concerns like a fine series of six advertising cards for 'Wright's Indian Vegetable Pills" featuring toddlers playing baseball ("Tum on, ets' p'ay ball"; "See me tech it!"; "Aint dot out!"; "I'se bo'en home"; "I'se dot it!"). There are also 33 'Arm & Hammer' bird cards after designs by John James Audubon (13 from the Arm & Hammer Brand / Church & Co. "Beautiful Birds of America" Collectors' Card, 1st Series from 1894; the others probably from the second series).

        Posthumous Memoirs of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky

      Boston: Jos. M. Wade, 1896. 1st. Original Wraps. Collectible; Very Good. The 1896 1st edition of this very uncommon, posthumously-published treatise by Madame Blavatsky on spirit-writing. "Dictated from the spirit world, upon the typewriter, independent of all human contact, under the supervision of G.W.N. Vost, to bring to light the things of truth, and affirm the continuity of life and the eternal activity of the soul immortal". And also on the title page: "Given to my Astral friend and associate Jos. M. Wade --H.P.B." A bright, solid example of a fragile publication. VG- in its pictorial wrappers, with light soiling to the panels and light chipping and creasing along the top-edges and at the spine crown. Still though, a sturdy, very presentable octavo. Scarce (not listed in Besterman, Price or Bibliotheca Esoterica).
