HOLDEN, Isaac
[Bridgeport, Connecticut, 1897. Good. A unique collection of 87 glass lantern slides (permanent positive images) from the library of Isaac Holden, an important Connecticut based phycologist, and founding editor and contributor to the monumental: *Phycotheca Boreali-Americana: A Collection of Dried Specimens of the Algae of North America*. The collection consists of two sets (a total of nearly 60 slides) of images of dried marine algae specimens ("Exsiccatae"), and a set of about 25 slides taken in and around the town of St. John's on the coast of Newfoundland. There is also a third subset of four slides with images of fauna and insects, and portrait slide of Holden as a dashing young man about to embark on an expedition. The marine algae specimens were collected by Holden at Seaside Park along the Connecticut coast and Long Island Sound in the mid-1880s. About half of the species are identified: with the manuscript Latin name, place, date, and Holden's signature reproduced in the image. Three images have been dyed in red. It's very likely that the unidentified specimens were collected by Holden and his close friend and colleague Frank Shipley Collins, who co-edited and also contributed to the *Phycotheca*. Both sets of specimens include a few charts and figures. The set of Newfoundland views date from Holden's 1897 trip to collect specimens of marine algae, many of which were distributed in the *Phycotheca*. The views are of the rocky coastline and adjoining seascapes, including a few snow-covered areas, and several images of fishermen and other inhabitants at work in t … [Click Below for Full Description]

1897. Original archive. Softcover. The 26 thick, octavo notebooks are written in a neat European hand, dated consecutively from 1897 through 1914.

Each notebook has a title-page stating the inclusive dates of the contents and where they were written, with the earlier volumes penned in Focsani (Romania), Paris, Zurich, Berlin, Lausanne, Charlottenburg, and Sniatyn (now Ukraine, then part of the Austro-Hungarian empire). Starting with Vol. VII (April 1902-Oct. 1903), he does his writing in the U.S. His first "American" volume was partially written in NY and St. Louis, the next in St. Louis and "Pittsburg", and from Vol. IX on, he writes solely in NY and Pittsburgh. ~~ Schwarz's first "American" volume was partially written in New York and St. Louis; the next in St. Louis and "Pittsburg"; and from Vol. IX on, he writes solely in NY and Pittsburgh. ~~ With one exception, the volumes contain his "Cugetari" (translated in later volumes as "Reflections"), and these "reflections" are consecutively numbered.

A cabinet card photograph circa 1897/98 measuring approximately 6 ?« x 4 ? inches of a 24th Colored Infantry African American Buffalo Soldier. The 24th infantry were sent to Fort Douglas from Fort Duchesne (dispatched in 1886 as ƒ??Indian Fightersƒ?) around 1896 and left for Cuba to fight in the Spanish-American War in 1898. However, a friendly eBayer offered that the soldier was from the 9th or 10th Cavalry Regiments based on the double fabric on his trousers. Another said the same as they were the only ones supplied with double fabric reinforced for saddle wear. A very rare item. Thanks for looking. AFRICAN AMERICANS IN UTAH Although permanent settlement of African Americans in Utah began with the arrival of Brigham Young's advance party in July of 1847, there was a black presence in the area almost twenty-five years before the arrival of the Mormons. Men of African descent, including James P. Beckworth and Jacob Dodson, were members of the fur trapping and exploratory expeditions that traversed the mountains and valleys of the territory that was officially named Utah in 1850. The Brigham Young party that arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in July 1847 included three African Americans - Green Flake, Oscar Crosby, and Hark Lay. These men were slaves of southern Mormons who sent them ahead to help prepare for the arrival of the Mormon caravans that were to follow. By 1850 there were approximately sixty blacks residing in the Utah Territory. The majority were slaves living in Salt Lake, Davis, and Utah counties. Although slavery was not sanctioned by law until 1852, the religi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edmund Spenser, Thomas Wise [editor]
London : George Allen , 1897 A very good set of the special limited edition of 1000 copies, printed at the Chiswick Press by Charles Whittingham on hand-made paper, and illustrated with complex designs and images by Walter Crane. Published in parts over 3 years from 1894 - 6, this was a huge undertaking and is judged to be one of Crane's best works. Complete in 6 volumes in the original cream coloured cloth with gilt designs and red titles to front board, gilt titles to spine, and red design to back board. Top edges gilt, remainder untrimmed. Each volume has the original rose-coloured part wrap bound in at the beginning and end. The bindings are in very good clean condition with the occasional very light mark. The bottom edges are occasionally darkened, particularly at the corners and spine end. Vol I has a light bump to the top edge of the back board close to the spine. Internally the contents are in very good to near fine clean condition with just the occasional small spot or mark. Pages tend to darken slightly at the untrimmed edges. All the endpapers have light spotting and there is a very small damaged area to the front endpaper joint of Vol III. Vols II and III have a very light speckle in the paper in some sections. Vol IV has a brown mark at the page edge of pp 871-4 and circa 900-907, 944-6. Vol V has a small paper flaw in the rear pastedown endpaper. The collation is complicated and the set is substantial - please enquire if you would like further details and additional images to the 5 that are posted with the book.

Twain, Mark
As Told by Huck Finn. And Other Tales. With a Portrait. London: Chatto & Windus, 1897. 32 pp ads dated Nov 1896. Original dark blue cloth decorated in gilt. First English Edition (actually published in late 1896) of this tale of Tom Sawyer as a detective. Having seen the soaring popularity of Sherlock Holmes across the Atlantic, Twain was trying to capitalize on the craze by placing his own well-known character into a Sherlock-style adventure. Twain pointed out that the incident described was factual, from "an old-time Swedish criminal trial." "Tom Sawyer Abroad" appeared a week earlier in the 1896-dated American edition (which also reprinted TOM SAWYER ABROAD). There are six other tales as well; four of them appear here for the first time in book form, as they did not appear in America until 1897, in HOW TO TELL A STORY and Other Essays.~This copy is of the first issue, (reading "With a Portrait" on the title page and not "A New Edition with a portrait"). It is in close-to-fine condition, with scarcely any wear (spine very slightly darkened); this edition is rather uncommon. Blanck 3448; McBride p. 186. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

A Series of Seventy Original Illustrations to Captian Sir R. F. Burton's "Arabian Nights" and a portrait of Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton Reproduced from the Original Pictures in Oils specially painted by Albert Letchford First Edition of the Large-Size Choice Edition de Luxe (Series C) #75 of only 250 issues. Published by H.S. Nichols Ltd., London Letchford's paintings were not ready for the first edition of Burton's translation, published without any illustrations in 1885-1888; so they were instead incorporated in the Nichols edition of 1897. Penzer, p. 124. Albert Letchford's "greatest work," containing 71 beautiful plates commissioned as illustrations for Sir Richard Francis Burton's lively (and often daring) translation of The Arabian Nights-- the enduring, irresistible folk tales of Aladdin, Ali Baba and many more--each plate loose as issued with original captioned tissue guards, including portrait of Burton, with 15-page booklet, in original richly ornamental gilt-stamped portfolio. The Alf Layla wa-Layla ("One Thousand Nights and a Night") have enchanted readers for centuries with shimmering visions of a fabled land. Esteemed explorer and scholar Burton translated and annotated the Arabian Nights as "a legacy to his countrymen" (DNB). The prized Nichols editions-- one in 1894, not illustrated, and the 1897 edition with Letchford's plates-- were the first complete editions of Burton's translation after the rare, 16-volume first edition of 1885.

Lombroso rejected the established classical school, which held that crime was a characteristic trait of human nature. Instead, using concepts drawn from physiognomy, degeneration theory, psychiatry and Social Darwinism, Lombroso's theory of anthropological criminology essentially stated that criminality was inherited, and that someone "born criminal" could be identified by physical (congenital) defects, which confirmed a criminal as savage or atavistic. 1897 L'uomo Delinquente Atlas Volume Cesare Lombroso Freaks Cr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Édition originale. Exemplaire astucieusement et soigneusement lavé et encollé avant reliure - c'est assez heureux et on dirait même un grand papier, non plus ce vilain papier de bois du Mercure de France... Ravissante reliure art-déco de Marguerite de Felice - comme inspirée, dirait-on, d'un tableau de Matisse. Professeur à l'école de l'Union des Arts Décoratifs dès son ouverture en 1894, Marguerite de Felice signa ses premières reliures en 1900 - se spécialisant dans ce qu'on appelait alors le "cuir d'art". Elle réalisa elle-même ses extraordinaires papiers à la cuve qui participent à sa réputation. En 1920, elle ouvrit un atelier à Neuilly avec Melle Picard, continuant ses cours à l'école de la rue Beethoven. Elle obtient une médaille d'or à l'exposition des Arts décoratifs de 1925 (Flety, page 70). [Attributes: First Edition]
