        Pictures from Birdland, with Watercolor

      London & NY: J. M. Dent & E. P. Dutton, 1899. Quarto. (25)pp. First edition. Illustrated with twenty-four chromolithographic plates by Charles Maurice and Edward Julius Detmold. This was the Detmold twins' first book, commissioned by Dent from the brothers when they were fifteen years old. Featured within are a broad range of winged fauna, from the exotic Toucan and Penguin, to the domestic Goose and Pheasant, and the extinct Ivory-billed Woodpecker. Detmolds?' uncle and guardian, Dr. Edward Barton Shuldham, contributed the verses. He notes in his Preface that the rhyming lines are an accessory to the striking and beautiful illustrations, providing light-hearted and entertaining descriptions of the birds for a young audience. Accompanying the book is an elegantly framed watercolor of the Osprey. When sold at Sotheby's in 2003, this and three other illustrations from the book were noted as watercolor drawings. It is our opinion that this is a woodcut printed outline water-color finished by Detmold. The lithograph that appears in the book has slightly different coloration. In The Fantastic Creatures of Edward Julius Detmold, David Larkin notes that the subtle, unusual patterning in the water of the Osprey illustration, in particular, especially shows the influence of Japanese art. The Detmolds' uncle was a prominent collector of Japanese woodblock prints, and one can see the influence that these might have had on the young artists. The Detmolds showed great promise as illustrators from a young age, having their first joint exhibition at age fourteen. Edward especially loved painting animals, which are often featured prominently in his illustrations, especially in his later works of folk tales and fantasy, such as The Arabian Nights. Some rubbing to covers and light wear to extremities, and a few of the descriptions do not correspond with the correct illustrations, the result of a printing or binding error, else a fine copy of this very scarce book.

        A Collection of Twenty-four Diaries, 1852-1899

      1899 - A collection of diaries spanning nearly five decades by a Centreville, Pennsylvania native, William M. Shriver, who was possibly a Civil War veteran. Twenty-four volumes, small octavo, various bindings (cloth, leather). Generally in fine condition. The brief entries are all written in pencil, with detailed household accounting lists in the back. They are mostly concise descriptions of the weather and the diarist's main activity of the day: working in the store, going to the local tavern, etc. Shriver has signed his name with the location and date in most of the volumes. The years included are: 1852, 1853, 1869, 1870-71, 1871, 1872, 1874, 1875, 1876-77, 1877-78, 1880-1881, 1881, 1882, 1883, 1887, 1888, 1890, 1891, 1892, 1894, 1895, 1896, 1897, 1899. In the 1870 United States Federal Census, there is an entry for a William Shriver of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania with an approximate birth date of 1830. The Civil War holdings of the Pennsylvania State Archives contains the papers and military records of a William M. Shriver of Cumberland County, dating from 1855, 1862-66, 1871-72, 1877-79, 1886, 1891, and 1897. Though there is no definitive evidence that all this refers to the same man, still the possibility exists that the William Shriver born about 1830 in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, is the same William Shriver who served during the Civil War, who, in turn, is the author of these diaries. Regardless, the diaries are a good resource for those curious about the daily life of an average citizen in 19th Century America. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Coming Battle - A Complete History of the National Banking Money Power in the United States *FIRST EDITION*

      Chicago W.B. Conkey Company 1899. 483 pages. "In this volume the author endeavors to give an accurate history of the present National Bank System of currency, including an account of the first United States Bank, - both of which were borrowed from Great Britain by those statesmen who, like the father of Sir Robert Peel, believed that a national debt was the source of prosperity. It is believed that the facts adduced in the following pages will be productive of some good, in pointing out the immense evils lurking in that system of banking, - a system which has produced panics at will, and which is the active abettor of the stock gamblers, railroad wreckers, and those industrial tyrants of modern times, the enormously overcapitalized and oppressive trusts. It is sought to point out the great dangers of delegating purely government powers to these greedy monopolists, by which they are enabled to organize a money trust, far more tyrranical than all the other combinations now in existence; and by which they absolutely defy the authority that endowed them with corporate life." - from Introduction. Binding sound. Unmarked. Moderately worn and soiled externally. Only defects are insect damage along exterior of each hinge. Detailed photos available upon request. An ultra-rare first edition copy of this classic and vitally important work. First Edition Hardcover 12mo - over 6?" - 7?" tall; First Edition. Good

        A THOUSAND DAYS IN THE ARCTIC: With Preface by Admiral Sir F. Leopold McClintock

      Harper & Brothers, 1899. Cloth. Good. 1st Edition: Vol I xxi, 551pp, Vol II xxii-xv, 580pp. Appendices, indices. Illustrated throughout with over one hundred eighty black & white drawings, plates, 5 maps. Matched set. Original blue cloth over boards with gilt decorative devices to front cover, gilt titling to spine and front covers, top edges gilt. A day-by-day journal of the Jackson-Harmsworth Expedition (1894-97). The party established winter quarters at Cape Flora, Franz Joseph Land, and remained there for 3 years. By sheer coincidence, Fridtjof Nansen and Hjalmar Johansen encountered Jackson's camp in June of 1896 during the Fram Expedition, and enjoyed several weeks of generous hospitality (after surviving through the winter on walrus and bear meat). Throughout their stay, the party made sledge journeys in the archipelago, surveyed, made scientific collections, hunted, and described the polar night. Includes a chapter on scurvy. [AB 7943]. "This is an unvarnished tale of a thousand consecutive days spent in the Arctic, printed almost word for word as it was written--while the facts and impressions were fresh in my memory--in our hut, or tent, when on sledging and boating journeys in Franz-Josef Land. It is a simple, true account and statement of facts incident to our life and work there--plain facts, penned by a plain man." (from the author's note). A very important title in early arctic exploration. Shelfware, corners bumped, chipping to spines, some small splits to spines. Moderate foxing, tear to 2 of the 5 folding maps, all maps fragile, staining to creases as expected. An original set, now very difficult to find with the original bindings. Good.

        The Gentleman from Indiana.

      New York: Doubleday & McClure Co., 1899 - Octavo. Original green cloth, titles and decoration to spine and upper board in red and yellow, green top-stain. Spine tanned, lightly rubbed at extremities, front hinge cracked and cover a little loose, faint toning to margins of contents. A very good copy. First edition, first printing of the author's first novel. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "'Well the old Triangle knew the music of our tread, How the peaceful Seminole would tremble in his bed.' Newton Booth Tarkington". This copy was probably inscribed for a friend from the author's Princeton days, as these are the lyrics to the song of the Princeton Triangle Club, an amateur musical comedy troup named after the percussion instrument. "Seminole" here refers to seminary students. As president of the Princeton Dramatic Association, Tarkington wrote a musical parody of Julius Caesar that became the group's first production after its name changed to Triangle Club the following year. He also started a campaign to raise money for the construction of a small building to house the club, which remained in use for 25 years. This copy also has an earlier ownership inscription of a Tarkington family member on the front pastedown. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        INDIANS OF SOUTHERN MEXICO: AN ETHNOGRAPHIC ALBUM

      (LANG, CHARLES B.). Starr, Frederick. INDIANS OF SOUTHERN MEXICO: AN ETHNOGRAPHIC ALBUM. Signed and Numbered by the Author. Chicago: Printed for the Author by the Lakeside Press, 1899. First Edition 1/560. Oblong Small Folio. Gilt Debossed Cloth. Photography Monograph. Very Good -/No Jacket. xxxii + cxli (350pp), 141 monochrome gravure illustrations. "Indians of Southern Mexico: An Ethnographic Album" is Frederick Starr's beautifully illustrated ethnographic survey of the indigenous peoples of the southern states of Mexico at the close of the nineteenth century. It was printed for the author in 1899 utilizing letterpress and gravure in an edition of five hundred and sixty copies only at Chicago's fabled Lakeside Press. Reproducing photographers Charles B. Lang and Bedros Tartarian's albumen images from the author's 1896 and 1898 expeditions amongst the Aztec, Chontal, Cuicatec and Chinantec, Juave, Mixe, Mixtec, Otomi, Tarascan, Tehuantepecano, Tlaxcalan, Triqui, and Zapotec tribes along with a descriptive text, to this day it remains a standard work in the field. A handsome copy of this elegant tome SIGNED AND NUMBERED by Frederick Starr in black ink on the front colophon, as issued, showing only minor wear to the extremities and tips of its still bright, navy blue gilt debossed cloth along with a few insignificant surface abrasions to the front and rear boards. With one hundred and forty-one photographic plates and weighing nearly eleven pounds, this title's binding and hinges are notoriously fragile. The massive textblock exhibits some typical play and slight pulling to the signatures, however it remains remarkably sturdy given its age and weight. The rear hinge is well preserved but for two small starts, with the front hinge revealing some separating along its length that has been securely repaired using archival adhesive without the need for reinforcement. The endpapers and edges show light wear and soiling, while the plates are bright and crisp with the occasional minor blemish to the margins. This particular example (number 440 of five hundred impressions on "heavy plate paper") was circulated in the 1993 Museum exhibition "Mexico Through Foreign Eyes: 1850-1990" curated by Carole Naggar and Fred Ritchin, and reproduced in the comprehensive catalogue published by W.W. Norton. All in all, it is a spectacular age-appropriate copy of this exceptionally striking and important Mexican ethnography.

        American Anthropologist

      American Anthropological Society, Various Locations 1899 - 120 volumes plus all indexes and supplements. Royal Octavo (9 1/4" x 6 1/4") and Quarto (11" x 8 1/2") issued in wrappers. Early volumes from the library of George M Foster and bound in green cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Other volumes from the library of Robert V Kemper. First editions. American Anthropologist is the flagship journal of the American Anthropological Association (AAA). It is known for publishing a wide range of work in anthropology, including articles on cultural, biological and linguistic anthropology and archeology. Its first incarnation (known as the "Old Series") started in 1888 and was published by the Anthropological Society of Washington, the first anthropology association in the United States. The "New Series" began in 1899 under an editorial board that included Franz Boas, Daniel G. Brinton, and John Wesley Powell and continues to this day. The four fields of Anthropology include cultural, linguistic, archeology and biological/physical. Sometimes applied anthropology is added as a fifth division. Among the journals published by the AAA, The American Anthropologist is the only one that follows the "four field" approach, publishing articles from all the subdisciplines of anthropology. Proponents of four-field anthropology see American Anthropologist's broad scope as important to maintaining disciplinary unity, while critics have expressed serious reservations about this aim, and criticize pressures since the 1970s against editors and works that do not subscribe to four field holism as an ideal for anthropological scholarship. Condition: Because of the quantity of this item shipping will be $500.00 domestic and will require 30 boxes to be shipped. Shipping arrangements will be made with the buyer.
