Pp. xxxii, 392; (ii) 393-962; 42 hand-colored lithograph plates after painting by Bruno Geisler with all tissue guards in place, 3 plain lithograph plates, 7 hand-colored maps.

"A monograph of the ornithology of the Celebes, with a lengthy discussion of the relationships of the island with adjacent territory and a detailed introduction containing a general discussion, a bibliography, and analyses of the avifauna of various islands. Most of the work was written by Wiggleworth" (Zimmer, p. 432). The fine color plates were painted by ornithologist Bruno Geisler who also collected the bird skins and made observations on the range and behavior of some species. In 1887, Bruno Geisler began collecting birds in Ceylon, Java and the Celebes (now Sulawesi) with his brother Herbert. In 1890, they moved to New Guinea. Their bird specimens and some ethnographic material were mainly sold to the then zoological-ethnological-anthropological museum in Dresden (now Staatliches Museum für Tierkunde and Museum of Ethnology Dresden). In 1893, Bruno Geisler became a curator and taxidermist in the Dresden museum. The bird skins collected by Bruno and Herbert were studied by author Adolf Bernard Meyer, a professor at the Dresden museum. See also Fine Bird Books (1990) 121, Nissen IVB 626, Casey Wood 461 and Ripley 192. Inscribed by the authors to British zoologist/ornithologist Richard Bowdler Sharpe in the top margin of the front wrapper of each volume, the inscription is dated 21. 6. 98 which may indicate the actual publication date of this work.

        Il Rinascimento delle ceramiche maiolicate in Faenza - Le ceramiche e maioliche faentine dalla loro origine fino al principio del secolo XVI. Appunti storici documentati con XX tavole di stoviglie antiche

      Tipografia - Litografia G. Montanari 1898 - 1889, Faenza - 2 voll., di cui uno di testo in-4° (362x258mm) e uno iconografico in-folio oblungo (332x528mm), in legatura posteriore in t. tela con riporto ai piatti delle brossure originali illustrate in litografia a colori (il volume di testo presenta un'illustrazione di Piancastelli con una figura di giovinetto seduta fra ceramiche faentine; quello di atlante iconografico la figura di un vaso faentino). Il volume di testo, constante di pp. (8), 327, (1), è preceduto da 4 tavole litografiche seppiate raffiguranti 7 tra vasi greco-siculi, coppe romane e patere etrusche rinvenute presso Faenza e nelle Puglie. Fregi tipografici n.t. in rosso e in nero, numerose figure n.t. Il volume di atlante consta di 40 superbe tavole cromolitografiche raffiguranti 193 esempi di ceramiche maiolicate delle manifatture faentine (il tutto su disegno e coloritura dell'autore medesimo) ma presenta la peculiarità di essere preceduto da altre 20 tavole cromolitografiche raffigutanti stoviglie antiche del territorio faentino, disegnate e colorite dal vero dallo stesso Argnani e costituenti il corpus iconografico di una sua complementare e precedente opera, Le ceramiche e maioliche faentine dalla loro origine fino al principio del secolo XVI. Appunti storici. documentati con XX tavole di stoviglie antiche (Faenza, Montanari, 1889); il testo del volume in questione (in-4°, pp. XII, 83, tiratura di soli 285 esemplari numerati; la nostra copia è tuttavia priva di numerazione) è allegato, sciolto, al nostro esemplare. Fioriture e bruniture consute. Bell'esemplare in parte intonso. Prima edizione, rara, tirata a sole 500 copie numerate (n° 386), di questa imponente e imprescindibile opera sulle maioliche faentine sparse per l'Italia con indagini effettuate nelle città di Bologna, Ferrara, Padova, Venezia, Mantova, Parma, Modena, Firenze, Arezzo, Perugia, Pesaro, Ravenna, Forlì, Fano, Ancona, Fabriano, Gubbio, Arezzo. dove taluni artisti maiolicari di Faenza trasportarono l'industria delle ceramiche. al fine di discernere con sicurezza le stoviglie lavorate in Faenza da quelle lavorate in città dove quest'Arte venne qui importata, come riassume il contenuto dell'opera lo stesso Argnani. L'appendice di documenti inediti è a cura di Carlo Malagola. La precedente opera del 1889 qui allegata sciolta è anch'essa di considerevole importanza; in essa l'Argnani si prefisse di dimostrare l'antichità delle ceramiche faentine, di esporre la grande scoperta della vernice stagnifera sullo scorcio del XIV secolo e di provare l'esistenza della fabbrica Ca' Fagioli di Faenza. L'Argnani (Faenza, 1822-ivi, 1905), storico dell'arte ceramistica, ceramista e litografo, fu conservatore della Pinacoteca Comunale di Faenza e socio corrispondente della Regia Deputazione di Storia Patria delle Provincie di Romagna.

        REPORT OF THE GOVERNOR OF THE DISTRICT OF ALASKA TO THE SECRETARY OF THE SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR 1898

      Government Printing Office, 1898., 1898. First edition. 8vo. Salmon-colored printed wrappers, 49 pp., map. Large portion of the report deals with more effectually carrying out the law prohibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors in Alaska. Mention is made of a tribe on the Admiralty Island known as the "Hoochinoos" who used to smuggle to the soldiers at Sitka a beverage known as "hoochinoo" and "hooch." "Hooch" was made from a mash of black molasses imported from the Hawaiian Islands. Smuggling and the control of smugglers is of great concern to the law as well as effectively enforcing the laws to protect both saloon keepers and the citizens. The governor further reports on criminal and penal laws, land laws, population, taxable property, agricultural development, stock raising, reindeer, fur seals, sea otters, mining, etc. Disasters are included in the report with the mention of the schooner Lady Jane Grey that went down off Cape Flattery with only a few saved. A map of the longitudinal section of workings of the Alaska/Mexican Gold Mine is also present. A fine, clean copy. WICKERSHAM 227.

        Jeu de l'Affaire Dreyfus et de la Verite

      1898 - (Dreyfus, Alfred). Jeu de l’Affaire Dreyfus et de la Vérité. Sceaux: E. Charaire, [circa 1898]. Folding cloth-hinged stiff boards, mounted with illustrated chromolithographic game surface. Measures 23-3/4 by 16-3/4 inches opened. $3000.Original game board, with game-squares containing portraits of the principal characters in the Dreyfus scandal, including Émile Zola, whose famous protest in the form of an open newspaper letter entitled “J’Accuse” contributed to Dreyfus’ eventual pardon and release.Dreyfus’ court-martial, conviction, and final acquittal “developed into a political event which had repercussions throughout France and the Jewish world” (Bredin), and exposed anti-Semitism that was rampant in the French military. Dreyfus was accused in 1894 of attempting to transmit a secret military document to the military attaché of the German embassy in Paris, the charges against him stemming from anti-Semitism. Arrested and tried before a court-martial, Dreyfus was found guilty of treason, sentenced to life imprisonment and exiled to Devil’s Island. Public outcry led to the discovery of suppressed exculpatory evidence, a retrial and eventual pardon. “The Dreyfus affair made a strong impact on the outlook of world Jewry and the atmosphere in their respective countries. Jews everywhere were shocked that the affair could take place in France, the ‘homeland of liberty and the Great Revolution,’ and that hatred of the Jews could still prejudice the behavior of a considerable part of the French people, in particular when the Jewish victim was completely assimilated. This seemed to prove clearly that assimilation was no defense against anti-Semitism” (Encyclopedia Judaica 6, 228). Without game pieces and dice. Only the lightest soiling to board surface, fragment of ribbon tie still in place. An extraordinary surviving artifact in near-fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

There were 3 editions of London Types, a deluxe edition with woodcuts coloured by hand and the Library and Popular editions of colour lithographs printed on different quality papers and in different bindings. Some of Nicholson's greatest images being: The Bus Driver, Guardsman, Hawker, Beef-eater, Sandwich-Man, Coster, Lady, Bluecoat Boy, Policeman, News-Boy, Drum-Major, Flower Girl and Barmaid.

        STORY OF THE MALAKAND FIELD FORCE: An Episode of Frontier War

      London Longmans, Green and Co 1898 - First edition, first issue of the book, no other printings were issued of the first edition but one. This copy with the printed errata slip tipped in. A complete and perfect copy. With a photographic portrait frontispiece, 2 folding maps in colour and 4 sketches and plans. 8vo, publisher’s original pale green cloth lettered in gilt on spine and cover.

An extremely fine copy, all tissue guards present, maps and sketches all in especially fine condition, the cloth as pristine and about as fine and clean as one could hope to find. THE FIRST EDITION, AND AN EXTREMELY FINE AND CLEAN COPY OF THIS INCREASINGLY HARD TO FIND WORK. The first book written by Winston Churchill who would one day be not only a prolific and prize winning author but one of the greatest figures in modern history. After an education at Harrow and Sandhurst he entered the army in 1895 and embarked on one of the most varied and distinguished careers of the 20th century. He acted as a correspondent for The Daily Telegraph from India and for the Morning Post during the Boer War. His dramatic escape from prison in Pretoria brought him to public attention. He embarked on his political career in 1900 by entering Parliament. While there he held many major offices of state: Home Secretary, Secretary of State for War, First Lord of the Admiralty in which he oversaw naval operations for the First World War, Colonial Secretary, Chancellor of the Exchequer and eventually in 1940, Prime Minister. The latter office he would hold throughout World War Two and again from 1951 to 1955. Early in this illustrious life, in 1897, the Daily Telegraph paid Churchill £5 per column for his dispatches from the Northwest Frontier in India, where he first saw action as a soldier, and after his return he fashioned these articles into the book here offered. It was the author's first book and only 2000 copies were printed; it is of course now very difficult to find, especially in such fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        TALES OF UNREST

      1898. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1898. 14 pp undated ads. Original dark green cloth. First English Edition of Conrad's fourth book -- his first collection of short stories (including "An Outpost of Progress," a Congo tale anticipating his later "Heart of Darkness"). The American edition by Scribner's is believed to have come out about ten days earlier. For this U.K. edition Cagle estimates a total printing of about 1,250 copies -- including some later copies with no gilt top edge, plus some copies that were remaindered with a cancel title page and a still later binding (the book did not sell well).~This copy is in the primary state (with top edge gilt and wove endpapers), and is in bright, just-about-fine condition -- one very faint small mark on the front cover, but essentially no wear at all. TALES OF UNREST is becoming increasingly uncommon in this condition. Cagle A4c.1. Provenance: bookplate of L[ouis]. C[harles]. Casartelli (1852-1925), who was an academic in the field of Eastern religions, the author of numerous books in that field between 1882 and 1908, and a professor at the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium). In 1878 he had also become an ordained priest of the Catholic Church; in 1903 he was elevated to the post of 4th Diocesan Bishop of Salford (the Manchester-Liverpool area), a post he held until his death.

      Graz, -, 1898. Orig. Ansichtskarte [14,3 x 9,3 cm]. Im Stein signiert von Jul. Steiner. Mit der eighd. Signatur von (Theodor) Herzl und anderen. - Die Karte ist gelaufen. Stempelabschlag a. Vorderseite, kl. Eckknick, leichte Gbrsp. - Herzl, (1860 - 1904), studierte ab 1878 an der Juridischen Fakultät der Univ. Wien, wo er 1884 promoviert wurde. In den folgenden Jahren entfaltete H. sein literarisches Talent. Elf seiner insgesamt 19 Bühnenstücke wurden am Burgtheater aufgeführt, hatten jedoch kein Nachleben. Als Feuilletonist und Essayist verband Herzl seine schriftstellerische Tätigkeit mit seiner beruflichen: von 1891 bis 1895 war er Pariser Korrespondent, von 1895 bis zu seinem Tod Feuilletonredakteur der \"Neuen Freien Presse\", der von Moritz Benedikt geleiteten Zeitung des überwiegend jüdischen Wiener Kultur- und Bildungsbürgertums. Auch diese Tätigkeit als schöngeistiger Homme de lettres hätte ihn nicht vor der Vergessenheit bewahrt; erst die Hinwendung zu seiner eigentlichen Lebensaufgabe, der Propagierung der zionistischen Idee und der Gründung der zionistischen Bewegung, die einen eigenen Judenstaat, womöglich in Palästina, anstrebte, machte ihn zu einer historischen und prophetischen Figur.
