        [Wrapper-title:] Collection complète des oiseaux d'Europe, dessinés et coloriés d'après nature.[Wrappers:] Amiens, printed by R. Machart, 183[3]. 4to. With 87 fine hand-coloured lithographed plates, and 11 descriptive letterpress double-leaves. Loose as issued, with original publisher's letterpress printed wrappers for 1 fascicle loosely inserted, front and back with a decorative border built up from fleurons, the front with a woodcut vignette of a bird, and the number of the fascicle ("4me"), the month ("Avril") and last digit in the date ("3") added in manuscript. The back wrapper with a lengthy note on the publication, and the name of the printer. In modern clam-shell box.

      Bradley Martin sale, item 1899; Fine Bird Books 110 (misinterpreting Nissen and stating that 400 plates were issued); Nissen, IVB 910 (32 plates only); Nissen, SVB 488 (idem); Quérard, La france littéraire, vol. 9, p. 299; Ronsil 2851 (32 plates only); WorldCat (2 copies); not in Ayer; Wood. Extremely rare and unfinished series of fine ornithological plates, lithographed by A. Leprince after Edouard Swagers and published in fascicles. As stated on the wrappers, the work was intended to reach no fewer than 50 fascicles, each with 8 plates, of which only a limited number was actually issued. The bibliographer Quérard believed that only the first 4 parts were published, with a total of 32 plates and 12 letterpress leaves, as did both Nissen and Ronsil. As is evident from the Bradley Martin copy, however, at least 12 fascicles with a total of 96 plates were issued. Though the Martin copy lacked the wrappers, it was probably the most complete copy extant, and, in fact, the only copy to have come on the market in the last decades (auctioned in 1989 and again in 1990).Our copy includes the wrappers of one fascicle, containing the title and an extensive description of the project, and 11 fascicles, each with a letterpress double-leaf and a total of 87 plates (lacking the "Chouette effraie"). The birds are arranged by diet, showing birds of prey (42), omnivores (17) and insectivores (28). They were drawn from specimens in the collection of Delahaye, curator of the library of Amiens.Little is known about Swagers. On the back wrapper he styles himself "professeur de dessin, à Amiens" and mentions that he will shortly also publish a series of plates of exotic birds, drawn from specimens in the Cabinet d'histoire naturelle, Paris. Apparently this project was never realised.Some spotting, wrappers tattered, otherwise in very good condition.

        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.

Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1899, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Originale.binding editor to bradel half dark green calico, smooth back, as part of black morocco, gilt small iron and double gold in net queue.Douze numbers from January to December 1899. conservées.Chaque number Covers Edition is illustrated with a literary xylographie.Contributions Paul Fort, Henri Ghéon, André Gide, Francis Jammes, René Boylesve, etc.Publication founded in 1890 by Henri Mazel, the Hermitage is a monthly magazine owned by the first wave of little magazines Symbolists. In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular contributors, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), the Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. The Hermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time as the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] which deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his state of mind symbolist, employees are more interested in poetry than novel. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, says that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddles the fin de siècle aestheticism and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1899. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie. Contributions littéraires de Paul Fort, Henri Ghéon, André Gide, Francis Jammes, René Boylesve, etc. 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.

        WHEN THE SLEEPER WAKES

      New York and London: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1899.. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-328 [329] [330: blank] [331-336: ads] [note first leaf is a blank], fifteen inserted plates with illustrations by H. Lanos, original pictorial green cloth, front panel stamped in blue, white, black and gold, spine panel stamped in gold. First U.S. edition. The U.S. edition has fifteen plates with Lanos illustrations, twelve more than the British edition. According to Wells, this novel depicts "our contemporary world in a state of highly inflamed distention." "Whatever actual future history may unfold, the shadow of Wells's frightening visions has lain dark over the most influential current science fiction for nearly a century... its disturbing images recur again and again... WE... BRAVE NEW WORLD... NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR, and in the whole tide of nightmare fiction that followed Hiroshima." - Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2459-62.

        Une femme de qualité au siècle passé, Paris, 1778, Paris

      J. Boussod, Manzi, Joyant et Cie, Paris 1899 - Volume in-folio, jaquette de papier et reliure plein veau, dos lisse avec titre doré et "Paris, 1899" doré en pied, couverture conservée, faux-titre, titre, frontispice, suite de 84 planches, montées sur onglet, tirées en couleurs en fac-similé d'aquarelles avec le texte seul en noir. Remarquable ouvrage tiré à 200 exemplaires numérotés à la main. Notre exemplaire porte le n°37. Maurice Leloir (1853 - 1940), illustrateur, dix-huitiémiste et aquarelliste, crée ici un livre étonnant, où chaque page aquarellée est au service d'un texte ironique, qui a pour ambition de retracer la vie et les occupations d'une élégantes du siècle passée, à la date précis de 1778. L'artiste passe en revue en dix grands chapitres "les façons intimes, les toilettes familières, les courses chez les marchands, les dîners d'apparat, les parties de campagne, la dévotion, la maternité, les salons, les théatres de société, les assemblées maçonnes.". Ces compositions aquarellées, partagées en dix chapitres que précède un titre monumental, sont accompagnées de dix grandes aquarelles hors texte. L'ensemble constitue une "remarquable documentation sur le XVIIIe siècle au point de vue des costumes comme de l’ameublement et de la décoration" (Carteret, Trésor du Bibliophile, IV, p.237). Boussod, Manzi, Joyant et Cie sont les successeurs de l'éditeur et imprimeur Goupil et Cie, très actif dans les milieux artistiques des années 1850-1900. Nous joignons le prospectus de souscription.

        THE BARBARIAN AND OTHER STORIES ..

      London, New York: F. Tennyson Neely, Publisher, [1899].. Small octavo, pp. [1-7] 8-121 [122-123] [124: blank], original maroon cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black and silver, publisher's ads for 26 titles in the "Neely's Booklet Library" printed on the verso of the front free endpaper. First edition. Published in paper wrappers as "Neely's Booklet Library," number 5, January 30, 1899, and in cloth, this being one of the latter. A collection of short fiction: the title story, a novelette, and eleven short satirical stories, all marked by a bleak outlook and a staccato, aphoristic style. The title story is a dystopian look at America ("Vulgaria") through the eyes of a learned Chinese visitor. "They Demand" also has some fantasy relevance as a very short story about the angel Gabriel listening to the identical petitions of the upper, middle and lower classes -- all presented in sordid terms -- to which he begins to answer in Latin, whereupon night falls. The style, with its very short sentences and absence of syntax, is a mirror of the discontinuity and inconsequentiality that Mendum sees all around him. Typical of his approach is the last item in the collection, "The Usual Biography," which reads (in its entirety): "He was born. He attended school. He worked. He married. He begot children. He died." An interesting document of the decadent, nihilistic fin de siècle, almost dadaistic. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, Additions. Teitler, Eureka!, n.d. [circa 1979] # 326. Teitler and Locke (2013) 851. A very good copy. A rare book. (#152505)

Contemporary boards, covered with the original publisher's illustrated printed paper sides. Rebacked, with the original backstrip laid down. New endpapers.

      Alt-Japan-Katalog 1099; Cordier, Japonica, cols. 489-490; Nipponalia I, 1899 (XVII, with illlus.). Detailed and beautifully illustrated account, luxuriously printed, of Japanese life and culture, including traditions, art, costumes, religion, language, calligraphy, architecture, topography, flora and fauna, the factory at Deshima and daily life, written by Overmeer Fisscher, a Dutch civil servant, who spent 9 years at Deshima as the secretary and director of the warehouses. The plates show a wide variety of costumes, trades and professions, a map of Japan superimposed over a view of Mount Fugi, a Buddhist temple, a tea ceremony, men cutting woodblocks for printing, an "alphabet" (syllabary) of Katakana calligraphy, a female artist at work, musicians and other performers. "Fisscher succeeded in producing a highly informative book which played an important role in introducing Europeans to the still little-known land that was Japan" (Nipponalia).With a water stain in the foot margin throughout, just touching the text on a couple pages but otherwise in very good condition, wholly untrimmed and with nearly all bolts unopened. The printed paper covering the binding is somewhat worn.

        Livre merveilleux, contenant en bref la fleur et substance de plusieurs traittez, tant des propheties & revelations, qu'anciennes croniques, faisant mention de tous les faictz de l'Eglise Universelle, co[m]me des scismes, discords & tribulations advenir en l'Eglise de Rome, & d'un temps auquel on ostera & tollira aux ge[n]s d'eglise & clergé, ... Paris, Thibault Bessault, 1565. 8vo. With Bessault's woodcut device on the title-page. 18th-century French grained red morocco (ca. 1745?), gold-tooled spine with pointillé ornaments, each board framed with thin-thick-thin fillets with a rosette(?) stamped over their intersections at the corners, gold-tooled turn-ins, gold fillets on the board edges, gilt edges.

      French vernacular books 49007 (3 [recté 2?] copies); Stanislas de Guaita et sa Bibliotheque Occulte (1899), item 952 (the present copy); D. Morgand, Cat. de livres .. à l'histoire de ... Paris ... provenant de ... Hyppolyte Destailleur (1894), 23535 (the present copy); Renouard, Imprimeurs ... Parisiens 378 (2 copies [recté 1 copy?]). Extremely rare (third copy known?) and much sought second dated French edition (Bessault published the first earlier in the same year, but augmented it for the present edition) of a collection of fascinating and very intriguing prophecies about the Catholic Church and the coming of the Antichrist, dedicated by the Italian Franciscan hermit Tellesforo da Cosenza (presumably the compiler and perhaps even author) to "Anthoine, noble Duc de Gennes", meaning Antoniotto Adorno (1340-1398), who was 6th Doge of Genoa. The Avignon Papacy had been notorious for its corruption before 1377 and Tellesforo claims the prophecies were compiled from the writings of Gioacchino da Fiore (ca. 1130-1202), so they supposedly foretold Avignon's past troubles, giving credence to their predictions of further troubles still to come. It also predicts a new royal house in France in 1584, not far off of the Bourbons in 1589. Renouard attributes the French translation to Guillaume Postel (1510-1581).From the library of Stanislas de Guaita (1861-1897), a Paris poet and novelist from an Italian noble family, with his gold-blocked armorial bookplate on red leather on the front paste-down. He was a Rosicrucian and made use of occultism and magic in his literary work. Although the binding is unsigned, the 1899 catalogue of Guaita's library attributes it to Derome, and the book has a printed description of what must be the same copy from Morgand's 1894 catalogue of the Hyppolyte Destailleur (1822-1893) collection. The 1894 catalogue notes that it came from "Beckford", presumably William Beckford (1760-1844), whose collection was sold in 1882.The binding was attributed to Derome in the 19th-century and is certainly work of very high quality. The endpapers include a watermark date "1743", so it was probably bound soon after that, which means it could be the work of Jacques-Antoine Derome (ca. 1696-1760) or one of his two older sons, but not Nicolas-Denis, who became a master binder only in 1761.Very slightly browned and with occasional mostly marginal water stains, one on the title-page, but still in very good condition. The binding is also very good, with only slight wear at the extremities. An extremely rare early edition of an important occult work and attack on Church corruption, finely bound ca. 1750.

Lisbon, Miguel Manescal da Costa, 1762. Folio (30 x 20.5 cm). With 21 engraved plates (1 folding), 1 nearly full-page engraving of a compass rose and about 10 woodcut diagrams in the text. Contemporary or near contemporary tanned sheepskin, richly gold-tooled spine, new endpapers.

      - Borba de Moraes, p. 672; Rodrigues 1899 note; Sabin 62883 note; cf. Bosch 144. Third edition of a detailed Portuguese handbook of navigation, primarily concerned with navigation in the Portuguese colonies and former colonies in America (including Brazil), Africa and the East and West Indies. It includes 18 numbered plates containing 36 nautical charts, maps of islands, city plans, etc., most from these regions, and unnumbered 3 plates (1 folding) showing instruments (quadrants, sundials, etc.). The author's father Luís Serrão Pimentel (1613-1679) wrote a handbook of navigation in 1673, but it remained in manuscript until Manuel Pimentel (1660-1719) published it posthumously in 1681. This and his 1699 revised edition were shorter than the present work and had only 2 plates. In 1712, however, Pimentel greatly expanded it and added numerous plates, bringing the book more or less to its present form. With bookplate. Some marginal tears and worm holes restored in the foot margin at the beginning and end, but otherwise in very good condition. Somewhat worn at the hinges and with some scratches on the back board, but binding otherwise very good. A practical Portuguese handbook of navigation that remained a standard work into the early 19th-century.

First edition. "Omnibus collection of 'bloodcurdling' tales with decidedly mid-Victorian flavor, in spite of publication date; set in an old-fashioned frame, too, told 'round the Yule Log at 'Ye Headless Ladye,' a Midlands hostelry of the old coaching days circa 1800, by an informal club of travelers and their hosts. Enlivened by a Dickensean mixture of the cold grue and the grotesquely humorous: like the fat boy, they 'only wants to make your flesh creep.' Notable tales include 'The Phantom Flea' and 'The Spirit Leg' in volume I; 'Execution' and 'The Waxen Image' in volume II; Volume III has no fantasy content being mostly taken up with Gothic melodrama 'The Gipsy Queen.' Literary curiosities which seem to have strayed from an Christmas annual circa 1865 into a triple-decker, probably self-published by the author. Binding, design, and illustrations are archaic for 1899." - Robert Knowlton. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 87. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2-50.
