        Codice Messicano Vaticano no. 3773

      Stabilimento Danesi, Roma 1896 - An 1896 facsimile of a Precolumbian Mexican codex produced by the Duke of Loubat from the original housed in the Vatican library. Joseph Florimond Loubat, whose title was conferred on him by Pope Leo XIII in recognition of his large gifts to the Catholic Church, was an American philanthropist who had, among other things, an interest in pre-Columbian Mesoamerican history and archaeology. In particular, he studied and wrote commentaries on a number of the surviving pre-Columbian codices, including this one. In 1896, to correct an error in an earlier description and transliteration of this particular codex, he commissioned a facsimile edition to be done using photochromography, reproducing the entire 48 leaves of the folding codex, as well as reproducing the wooden binding of the codex. Fifty copies of the facsimile were created, each housed in a folding wood-and-leather box along with three pamphlets about the codex, one in English, one in Italian, and one in Spanish. The facsimile codex and the three pamphlets are here present and complete as issued; each bears ex-library markings from a no longer extant Catholic school. A rare edition: OCLC locates only three copies. In original quarter leather wooden box (damaged). Otherwise, very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Narrative of James Murrells ' ("Jemmy Morrill") Seventeen Years' Exile among the wild blacks of North Queensland,and his life and shipwreck and terrible adventures among savage tribes; their manners, customs, languages, and superstitions; also Murrells' rescue and return to civilization

      Brisbane: Edmund Gregory, 1896. Small octavo, 45 pp., two photographic reproductions, first very toned but the paper otherwise good; original printed blue paper wrappers, very worn at the spine; preserved in a silk-lined green morocco box by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. 17 years with the Aborigines of North Queensland. Rare 19th-century edition of an important account of the shipwreck of James Murrells and the subsequent seventeen years he spent living with an Aboriginal tribe near Mount Elliott on the Queensland coast south of Townsville. First published in 1863, this 1896 edition has an interesting foreword by the editor and Government Printer of Brisbane, Edmund Gregory. 'In 1846, the ship {i Peruvian }was wrecked on her way from Sydney to China. A raft conducted seven of the survivors to the shore near Cape Cleveland. Three died before they had been landed a fortnight. The others were then discovered by the blacks. When both sides had recovered their mutual astonishment and alarm, they made each other's acquaintance. The natives appeared to have treated them with kindness and consideration… After seventeen years wandering with the blacks, he eventually (in 1863) approached the fence of a sheep-yard… and, upon being challenged by the settlers, was able to find words to the effect that he was a shipwrecked seaman. His story was obtained from him with great difficulty, owing to his reticence. Examined by the Police Magistrate of Rockhampton "he contented himself with monosyllabic replies, and augmented rather than satisfied the thirst of his audience for information".' (Ferguson).

        The Suppression of the African Slave-Trade to the United States of America 1638-1870

      Longmans, Green & Company, New York 1896 - First edition. 335pp. A bookplate on the front pastedown, tiny tears at the spine ends, and the front hinge slightly cracked, still a tight and attractive, near fine copy of an exceptionally scarce title. Publisher's slip tipped in (about the price of the book). Du Bois's first book, a commercially published version of his doctoral dissertation (Harvard at the time did not have an incorporated university press) which the scholar had taken great pains to transform from dry historical facts into readable prose. Du Bois went considerably further than any previous researcher to examine real data and document the exact rate of importation of enslaved Africans from 1619 onwards. Most importantly, Du Bois built a strong case for American complicity (both Southern and Northern) in the traffic of slaves well after the 1808 Constitutional ban on the maritime slave traffic. The book remains a model of historic research and writing, and demonstrated that even as a student Du Bois had a unique ability to focus public attention on critical issues by combining history, sociology, and accessible morality. A rare keystone of African-American scholarship and literature. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS A Story of the Grand Banks

      London,: Pearson's Magazine. Handsomely bound in 3/4 reddish-brown niger morocco, t.e.g.. 1896 to 1897. 1st edition. hb. Slim 8vo, 85 pp. . Written when Kipling was but 31, and not long married to the sister of his American agent, this is his only book to be set entirely in America. This unique item contains the December, 1896; and the January to April, 1897 parts of Pearson's Magazine which constituted the first appearance in print of Kipling's famous novella. The first book publication was by Macmillan (London), later in 1897, with 21 illustrations by I. W. Taber. The first American book publication was also in 1897 by The Century Co. (New York City). This true first printing also contains 16 illustrations by I. W. Taber, as well as an additional 21 illustrations by Fred T. Jane (the founder of "Jane's Fighting Ships "), and two by Swain. The five parts are bound without any preliminary leaves, containing 85 pages from the magazine. The binding is by Sandorski and Sutcliffe, of London. The spine is in compartments with delicate gilt lettering and the date 1896-7 at bottom. The leather of the front board is a bit spotted, more so near the top than elsewhere, and the top of the hinge is rubbed. The boards are also slightly bumped. The front free endpaper shows the remains of stamp hinges where the former owner has hinged his bookplate and some auction notices of this book. There are four small spots to the rear endpaper, of no particular consequence. The contents are generally clean, if slightly edge-worn. Overall, the book is in very good condition, in a most attractive binding. Martindell 68. .

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire. Année complète 1896.

      Bureaux de la Revue 1896 - - Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1896, 15x24,5cm. - Edition originale.Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline saumon, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue.Onze numéros de janvier à novembre 1896. Couvertures conservées.Contributions littéraires de André Gide ("Ménalque"), Maurice Barrès, Octave Uzanne, Francis Jammes, Pierre Louÿs, Henri Ghéon, etc.Le numéro de février rend hommage à Paul Verlaine, disparu un mois auparavant. Un beau portrait du poète sur son lit de mort d'après un dessin de Noé Legrand.Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

      WorldCat (4 copies of all issues); cf. Thieme & Becker V, p. 152; Weilbach, Dansk Kustnerlex. I, 1896; not in BAL; Fowler. Enlarged issue of a very rare series of engraved views of Danish castles, mansions, houses, gardens and city views, by the Danish landscape painter Johan Jacob Bruun (1715-1789). It was first published in 1761, containing 50 views of buildings on the Danish island Zealand, as the first volume of a planned series covering whole Denmark. The other volumes never appeared, but 10 additional views were already engraved (dated 1760-1762) and included in the present issue, with all plates on the same French paperstocks mostly watermarked: S. SAZERAC & C (probably Simon Sazerac, according to Gaudriault active in 1789) and FIN DANGOUMOIS (similar to Heawood 3252 dated 1782). When Bruun died in 1789 the plates were bought by the engraver Gerhard Ludwig Lahde and later published with new descriptions in Dannemarks kiøbstæder og slotte i kobbere af Brun (1799-1806).With plate numbers in manuscript on the back of the plates and some occasional faint thumbing in the margins. Binding rubbed. Very good copy of a very rare series of views of Denmark.

Westminster: Archibald Constable and Co., 1896-1911. [The Memorial edition], limited to 1025 copies, this being copy no. 527, numbered and initialed (GMM) by Meredith. Thirty-six octavo volumes (8 1/2 x 5 5/8 inches; 216 x 142 mm.). Frontispiece to first volume. Armorial bookplate of Louise G.

A handsome set."Ah, Meredith! Who can define him? His style is chaos illumined by flashes of lightning" (Oscar Wilde). His signature is extremely rare; lightning strikes this initialed set."The Memorial Edition of the Works of George Meredith. is the standard edition" (Encyclopedia Britannica).Victorian novelist George Meredith's (1828-1909) writing was characterized by a fascination with imagery and indirect references. He had a keen understanding of comedy and his Essay on Comedy (1877) is still quoted in most discussions of the history of comic theory. In The Egoist, published in 1879, he applies some of his theories of comedy in one of his most enduring novels. Some of his writings, including The Egoist, also highlight the subjection of women during the Victorian period. During most of his career, he had difficulty achieving popular success. His first truly successful novel was Diana of the Crossways published in 1885. His first big novel, The Ordeal of Richard Feverel, was judged so shocking that Mudie's circulating library canceled an order of 300 copies. Meredith was richly honored: he succeeded Lord Tennyson as president of the Society of Authors, and in 1905 he was appointed to the Order of Merit by King Edward VII.

        A Handbook of Bandy, or Hockey on the Ice

      London: Horace Cox. 1896. First. First edition. Gray cloth boards ruled in black and titled in gilt. 57,(3),(4 ads)pp. Frontispiece photograph, line drawings and diagrams throughout. Moderate soiling, else a very pleasing, near fine copy. While other books on winter sports discuss hockey and bandy, this is the very first book solely devoted to hockey. Inscribed on the front pastedown: "R.H. White from C.G. Tebbutt. Jan 1896." The sports ice hockey and bandy (which usually has larger teams, and rules that in some ways emulate soccer) were mostly synonymous at the time, although the game we are familiar with today evolved away from bandy to follow the Canadian rules. The Tebbutt family, Arnold, Neville, and Charles Goodman, all contributed to this book, although Arnold is given pride of place as author on the title-page. Of the three, C.G., who inscribed this copy, was probably the most influential: he introduced hockey into Sweden in 1894, and also organized the first international Bandy match, in 1891 between English and Dutch teams. A rare book, neither OCLC nor RLIN records a copy, and we have never seen another. .
