The Horn Scientific Expedition was the first primarily scientific expedition to study the natural history of Central Australia. It took place from May to August 1894, with expedition members first traveling by train from Adelaide to the railhead at Oodnadatta in South Australia, then using camels for transport to traverse over 3000 km of largely uncharted country from Oodnadatta through the Finke River basin to Alice Springs and the Macdonnell Ranges in what is now the Northern Territory. This volume presents the section on reptiles and amphibians collected on this expedition. The reptile section is by herpetologist Arthur H. Lucas, and the amphibian section was authored by Walter Baldwin Spencer, an English-Australian biologist. This important herpetological monograph is also bound with the Mammalia section by Baldwin Spencer (52 pages, 3 hand-colored plates, 1 plain plate) and the Crustacea section by Baldwin Spencer and T. S. Hall (22 pages, 4 plain plates). The reptile and amphibian section of the Horn Expedition is rarely offered as a separate work.

        Commentaries on American Law.

      Boston, Little, Brwon, and Company, 1896.. Fourteenth Edition edited by John M. Gould. 4 Bde. 8vo. (1:) CCXCI, 548 S.; (2:) X, 647 S.; (3:) VIII, 514 S.; (4:) VII, 742 S. Spätere Halbleinenbände mit Buntpapierüberzug auf den Buchdeckeln.. Kent (1763-1847), war zunächst von 1785 bis 1798 im Staate New York als Rechtsanwalt tätig, anschließend von 1794 bis 1798 und nochmals 1824 bis 1826 als Rechtsprofessor am Columbia College., beides allerdings nicht mit jenem Erffolg, wie er in später erfahren hat. Im Jahre 1798 wurde er zum Richter ernannt und war von 1804 an Gerichtspräsident. Von 1814 bis zu seiner Pensionierung im Jahre 1823 wurde er schließlich zum Richter am Chancery-Gericht des Staates New York berufen, dem für alle Equity-Fälle zuständigen Gericht. Die Unterscheidung zwischen Common Law und Equity, einem im Mittelalter zum Ausgleich von Härtefällen entwickelten Billigkeitsrecht, das sich zu einem eigenständigen Rechtssystem entwickelt hatte, und die damit einhergehende Errichtung besonderer Equity-Gerichte waren aus dem englischen Recht in das amerikanische übernommen worden. Kent hat mit seinen Entscheidungen, die über New York hinaus Autorität erlangten, das englische Equity-Recht den amerikanischen Bedürfnissen angepaßt und eine Equity-Gerichtsbarkeit amerikanischer Prägung geschaffen. Zwischen 1826 und 1830 veröffentlichte Kent seine Commentaries on American Law, die in mehreren Auflagen erschienen und neben den Werken von Joseph Story das wohl bedeutendste Werk der amerikanischen Rechtsliteratur der ersten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts sind. Die Commentaries, nach dem Vorbild von Blackstones Commentaries on the Law of England gestaltet, sind die erste systematische Darlegung des gesamtgen amerikanischen Rechts mit Ausnahme des Strafrechts. Das Werk erlangte schnell großes Ansehen als autoritative Darstellung des amerikanischen Rechts und hat viel zur Amerikanisiserung des Rechts beigetragen.

        Towards Democracy

      Manchester - Labour Press, 1896 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Towards Democracy was only Carpenter's fourth book of a lifetime of work onsocial injustices. Bound in cloth, with gilt lettering. Edward Carpenter (1844 1929) was an English socialist poet, anthologist, early gay activist and socialist philosopher. A leading figure in late 19th- and early 20th-century Britain, he was instrumental in the foundation of the Fabian Society and the Labour Party. Carpenter joined the Social Democratic Federation (SDF) in 1883 and attempted to form a branch in the city. In 1891, he met George Merrill, a working class man also from Sheffield, and the two men struck up a relationship. Merrill had been raised in the slums of Sheffield and had no formal education. Their relationship not only defied Victorian sexual mores but also the highly stratified British class system. In Love's Coming-of-Age he argued that a just and equal society must promote the sexual and economic freedom of women. He argued passionately that the source of war and discontent in western society was class-monopoly and social inequality. He termed this social injustice class-disease, where each class acts only in its own interests. To Carpenter's mind, a radical social and economic restructuring needed to take place in order to end social fragmentation. Condition: The binding is firm and tight. There ismild wear to the extremities, including mildbumping and some discolouration. Internally the pages are clean and bright with a couple of spots on the first and last couple of pages only. Over all the condition is very good..

        Songs

      Oxford: Daniel Press, 1896. First edition. Superbly bound by Emily Daniel at the Daniel Press consisting of full stiff vellum decorated with all-over gold stamped florets with painted red highlights on both covers, spine with gilt lettering and with Daniel's characteristic snapping silver clasps. A picture of nearly the same binding, though with slightly different floret designs is given in full color in Tidcombe (Plate 43). Rear cover yellowed. Clasps in perfect working order. Some light foxing within. Emily Daniel, wife of Danel Press' founder Henry Daniel, worked closely with Katharine Adams, and in 1901, the latter exhibited fifty-six bindings at Worcester House, the home of the Daniel Press. According to Tidcombe, Daniel may have had lessons early on from Katharine Adams. Emilly Daniel bindins are extremely scarce.
