        THE CLAVERINGS

      1867 - With Sixteen Illustrations by M. Ellen Edwards. In Two Volumes. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1867. 2 pp undated ads in each volume. Original green cloth elaborately decorated in blind and gilt, beveled. First Edition of these adventures of Harry Clavering, beginning with Julia Brabazon jilting him in favor of a wealthy old debauchee.~It is a novel of atmosphere, and the atmosphere is of that sort very dangerous for the English novelist.; the green-lighted, close-scented gambling rooms, the shabby adventures of half-deserted spas, the shelving beaches of foreign watering-places, concealed accents, stolen passports, impoverished counts and impertinent ladies' maids. [Walpole, quoted in Gerould] ~Trollope himself later recalled that "I consider the story as a whole to be good, though I am not aware that the public ever corroborated that verdict." There were no subsequent two-volume editions following this first one.~Sadleir notes two very similar binding variants: one with the cloth stamped in gilt and in black, and the other identical except that the black stamping is replaced by blind-stamping. This copy is of the latter variant. Sadleir opines~I do not know which style is earlier, but would, on general principles, incline to favour that with the additional black-blocking. Not only is it less frequently found than the [blind-stamped] one above described, but publishers tend to simplify rather than to elaborate a binding design for economy's sake if for no other reason.~This set is in very good or slightly better condition -- quite clean and bright, with light wear along the spine ends and joints (the latter is typical for these volumes, because each spine bulks wider than the rest of the volume); the original terra-cotta endpapers are still here, with only minor cracking.

Third, Tycho began to analyze the position of the comet within the planetary system from a Copernican perspective. On this basis, he gradually began to develop a new understanding of the whole planetary system" (Christianson, On Tycho's Island S. 63). - Nahezu fleckenfreies und wohlerhaltenes Exemplar

        The Canadian Handbook and Tourist's Guide Giving a Description of Canadian Lake and River Scenery and Places of Historical Interest with the Best Spots for Fishing and Shooting

      Montreal: M. Longmoore & Co., 1867. Second Edition. Hardcover. Good. 196 p. 8 mounted albumen prints by William Notman. Brown cloth with gold and blank impressing. Chipped lower spine. Lower corners bumped. Ink inscription on front free endpaper. Foxing, mainly to plates. Blue ribbon is still present at p. 128. What to see and do in Canada in Confederation year. Note that Canada at this time means Ontario and Quebec; the writer seems to place more significance on "the Lower Province," perhaps for historical reasons. Nevertheless the traveller is encouraged to "undertake a ramble, with rod and gun in hand, from Niagara to Labrador" and most of the soon-to-be Province of Ontario receives adequate description. Those of us living in London, Ontario will be gratified to learn that we are "a city of fine appearance, of wide streets, running at right angles to each other, and with excellent buildings" (p. 160). The first edition of this guide appeared in 1866 with 10 illustrations. Since Notman (1826-1891) was considered the most significant Canadian photographer of the time, who better to photograph the Victoria Bridge in Montreal Harbour or the beauty of Niagara Falls?

        A Superb Collection of Photographs of Italy

      Italy: Alinari, 1867 A superb set of monumental early photographs of Italy by Fratelli Alinari of Florence, the world's oldest photography firm. Large folio (20 x 25 in.). Two volumes. Contemporary quarter calf. 134 albumen prints, mounted on heavy paper, each with manuscript caption. Various sizes, from 16½ x 21½ in. mammoth prints to several 3 x 4 in. prints. Some foxing, almost exclusively limited to margins of mounting paper. Some wear to binding, but a very handsome volume, with the photographs generally in fine condition. Magnificent photographs from masters of the genre. Fratelli Alinari, founded in Florence in 1852, is the world's oldest photography firm. The three Alinari brothers pioneered the use of the camera for reproducing artwork and architecture from the great Italian galleries for public consumption. They are also known for their advocacy of the photographic portrait and for their photographs of Italian buildings and monuments. "The Alinaris were called to all the most important exhibits of the age. ... The Alinari images played a fundamental role in the perception and knowledge of the Italian work of art" (Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography). In these two volumes, the Alinaris have focused on the architecture of the great cities of Italy. They capture the neoclassical elements of building façades and interiors as well as other city structures with exquisite detail and precision. They approach each subject from a unique perspective chosen to capture and draw attention to its most intriguing features - from the monumental Duomo and Campanile (dome and belltower) in Florence, to the balustrades of the Rialto Bridge in Venice, to the arches and columns of a cathedral doorway in Verona. Volume I is devoted to Venice, including the Palais Ducal, St. Mark's Place, and the Grand Canal. Volume II contains images of Florence, Pisa, Bologne, Padua, and Verona, including landscapes, architectural views, and occasional reproductions of famous works of art. These two volumes present an opportunity to acquire superb, early large-format images of Italy's most famous buildings and settings in extraordinary high-quality prints by the most famous photographer in the field.

        An album of 20 excellent views of Niagara Falls

      20 albumen prints including 9 mammoth plate (16 x 20 in.) photographs, mounted. Half green morocco, gilt-stamped on the upper board "Niagara Falls." Binding worn but sound and attractive. Early German inscription on front pastedown, translated as follows: "From the estate of Uncle Erdwin and Aunt Tony Amsinck. The pictures are from the year 1867. (see their photo on the third-to-last page) Page 10, on the top left." Slight staining, occasional foxing or fading to images. An outstanding album containing beautiful and unusual images including, as its final image, one of the most remarkable North American photographs of the period. This unique artistic photograph album is linked to three historically important Niagara Falls photographers: George Barker (a Canadian by birth who owned studios in both London, Ontario, and the Niagara Falls region), Platt D. Babbitt (with whom Barker is known to have worked), and Samuel J. Mason (a prominent portraitist and landscape photographer). The combination of their skills and the extraordinary vistas of the American and Canadian Niagara Falls has resulted in an album of photographs of great beauty. Further study is needed to make direct attributions for many of the photographs in the album. Evidence suggests that many are by George Barker, but because a studio fire destroyed his archive in 1870, except his stereoviews, certain attribution is difficult. Several of the photographs show the suspension bridge connecting Ontario to New York, while others are unusually large and high quality photographs of Niagara Falls themselves. Photographs of Niagara Falls are not uncommon because the natural wonder has long attracted artists, admirers and visitors, but albums of this high quality, great beauty and large format are now rare. The final photograph, a particular highlight, is the impressive seemingly moonlit photograph, attributed to George Barker. This magnificent photograph compares favorably with the work of any of the great European or North American photographic artists of the period. 1. Barker, George (attr.). Niagara Falls, American and Horse Shoe/Canadian Falls. Albumen print, 6.75 x 8.75 in. Contemporary manuscript caption: "Niagara Falls." Image related to Barker's stereoview, "Prospect Point." The final photograph of the album is an astonishing image of the Canadian and American Falls under what appears to be moonlight. Born in London, Ontario, George Barker became a very influential landscape photographer. At his death he was hailed as the "eminent photographer of Niagara Falls." This photograph is clearly related to Barker's stereoview Prospect Point. Both images were taken from the same vantage point and both demonstrate the illusion of night. Further, Barker's stereoviews 927 American Fall-- Moonlight--Niagara and Niagara Falls by Moonlight reflect the photographer's desire to make pictures that looked like night. With these stunning images Barker showed that his accomplishments far surpassed those of ordinary 19th-century landscape photographers. The Charles Bierstadt photograph Falls from the New Bridge, Moonlight, Niagara, NY also relates to the present image, but because Bierstadt almost exclusively made stereoviews, attribution to that photographer is unlikely. Other than large- format photographs and stereoviews sold before 1870, little of Barker's work survives because his archive was consumed in a fire in 1870, five years after he established his own photography business in Niagara. Pre-1870 images of this size and beauty are rare. This photograph was likely taken during the day and made to look like night through a complex compositing process in which two negatives were placed on top of each other during printing. Still, even during the day the long shutter speed of 19th-century cameras made it difficult to create photographs of this quality. More details on request.

      Copenhagen Gydendalske Boghandel F. Hegel 1867 - First edition. Contemporary half black morocco over morocco covered boards. Gilt lettering and four raised gilt decorated bands to the spine. A very good, tall and unusually fresh copy, with just a little wear to the boards and extremities. Hinges cracking, but holding. Printed in a first edition of just 1,250 copies in 1867, Peer Gynt initially enjoyed great success; "Hegel [Ibsen's publisher] sent word that the first edition of 1,250 copies had sold out almost at once, and that a second edition of 2,000 was in the press". (Michael Meyer, 'Ibsen'). According to Francis Bull the play 'ranks still higher than any of his "realistic" plays, and may be mentioned in the same breath as such literary treasures as Hamlet, Faust, and Don Quixote' ('Ibsen - the Man and the Dramatist'). Copies of the first edition are incredibly rare in commerce. Only three copies are recorded by ABPC since 1975, and in the same period Jahrbuch der Auktionspreise für Bücher lists only four copies.
