         Coup d'œil sur les incendies de Constantinople

      Constantinople: de Castro,, 1871. Octavo (196 x 133 mm), lithographic title + 29 pp. Original pink paper wrappers, printed in black. Mild denting to wrappers and text, wrappers slightly faded, a few tiny spots to spot, minuscule manuscript correction (probably the author's) to p. 17. A very good copy. First and only edition, presentation copy of this extremely rare pamphlet written in response to the 1870 Pera fire (the "Harik-i kabir"), inscribed by the author "A Mr. le Profr. Marzolo, hommage" on the front wrapper. This must be Francesco Marzolo (1818–1880), who taught medicine at the University of Padua, rather than his more famous brother, Paolo, who also taught languages, including Arabic and Turkish, although Zennaro may have been taught by him too. The fire began on Feridiye Sokagi shortly after midday on 5 June and "took only six hours to destroy two thirds of the quarter, killing thousands and destroying countless buildings" (Boyar & Fleet, A Social History of Ottoman Istanbul, p. 78). In response the government proposed an extensive remodelling of the local area, though the plan was only partially implemented. Zennaro, an Italian physician evidently long-resident in the city, estimates that approximately 8,500 houses were destroyed (more recent accounts have suggested 3,000), with some 2,500 dead, and accuses certain parties of having a vested interest in maintaining inadequate fire safety, including merchants and architects. He also surveys the use of building materials, the layout of the city's streets, water provision, and emergency procedures, and recommends the safer storage of oil and gas, the use of stone instead of wood, the widening of streets, a reformed fire service, and a regulated professional body of municipal architects. A highly important document in the social history of the Ottoman capital, otherwise untraced in libraries and commerce.

         A Report on the Expedition to Western Yunan via Bhamo

      1871 - 2 folding maps (1 with colour outline) & another large folding partly coloured, 5 lithograph plates. 8vo. Original purple cloth, back faded and repaired at the head and foot, in slipcase. xii, 458pp. Calcutta, Office of the Superintendant of Government Printing, A rare book writtten by the expedition's naturalist and medical officer. This copy contains an extra map that is neither called for in the list of contents nor mentioned in the cartographic appendix. Compiled and printed two years earlier than the rest of the work, by Robert Gordon who was sent to join the expedition with extra cash, it nevertheless may still have been intended for inclusion in the work because the pocket is large enough to contain its substantial bulk. Anderson later published his natural history reports, this volume contains an excellent history of this part of upper Burma, together with the historical section. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Personal Narrative of a Year's Journey Through Central and Eastern Arabia(1862-63)

      1871 - Sixth edition. Folding map (linen-backed) & 4 extending plans. Small 8vo. Contemporary half morocco with maroon cloth boards, gilt, front cover stamped with previous owner's initials (G.W.T.). Lacks portrait frontispiece. Armorial bookplate of Geo. W. Wyville Thomson to front paste-down endpaper.vii, 421 pp. London and New York, Macmillan and Co., Inscribed by the author on the first page to W. Thomson, who was his ?fellow traveller for many miles by sea and land? This is most likely the Scottish natural historian and marine zoologist Charles Wyville Thomson (1830-1882), who was baptised Wyville Thomas Charles Thomson (eventually changing his name in 1876). Thomson is best remembered for his work as chief scientist on the Challenger Expedition (1872-76). Disguising himself as a Syrian doctor Palgrave visited the Rashidi capital Hayil and Riyadh, capital of the Saudis. Thence on to the shores of the Persian Gulf where he visited Bahrain and importantly gives us probably the best nineteenth century description of Qatar. Palgrave was well read in Arabic literature and was conversant with Arab customs, as well as being a shrewd observer and an accomplished writer. Macro, 1731. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Woman's Work. With Special Reference to Industrial Employment.

      London: Victoria Press,, 1871. A paper read by Emily Faithfull, at the meeting of the Society of Arts, March 29th, 1871. [Together with:] A clipped signature of Emily Faithfull. Octavo (210 x 137 mm), pp. 20. Disbound. Occasional pencil marks to margins highlighting passages of the text. Faint foxing to bottom edge; an excellent copy. First edition in pamphlet form. This paper was originally published in the Arts Journal on 31 March of the same year, alongside a summary of the discussion which followed Faithfull's reading. The paper was reprinted by Faithfull's Victoria Press with updated figures based on the census which occurred in April of that year. Faithfull (1835–1895) was a founding member of the Society for Promoting the Employment of Women, and opened the Victoria Press in 1860 with the aim of providing employment for women, specifically in the role of compositors. This pamphlet addresses the issue of female employment, specifically with regards to the larger number of women in the population than men. This disparity was a major concern due to the fact that these women, termed "superfluous women", would not be able to marry, and therefore would require employment to support themselves. This was one of the leading issues which prompted the founding of the Society for Promoting the Employment of Women in 1859. In this paper however Faithfull notes that, "a Society for Promoting the Employment of Women, however admirable, cannot really do what is wanted; a national effort, in the fullest sense of the word, will alone enable us to cope". Faithfull's discussion of industrial employment focusses on the idea that women were more than "mere machines". She argues that viewing them as "mere machines" prevented women from taking on more senior roles, thereby denying young women the guidance and protection of senior women in the workplace, creating poorer working conditions, an issue which was pertinent in working women's strikes later in the century. Faithfull and the Langham Place group were active in opposing restrictive employment laws, particularly the Factory Act of 1874, but wary that too many restrictions could have adverse effects on the wages and self-dependence of women workers. Although some recent historians have argued that Faithfull's rhetoric was more moral than her business practice, her output, and the output of the Victoria Press as a whole, nevertheless remains a key part of the discussion surrounding women's labour at this time, and a basis for understanding the labour debates which occurred later in the century. This copy is together with Emily Faithfull's clipped signature. Faithfull was a prolific letter writer, having extensive correspondence with various key figures at the time, including Barbara Bodichon, Richard Cobden, Bram Stoker, and Christina Rossetti. The majority of her correspondence however was destroyed by Faithfull after her involvement in the divorce case of Helen and Henry Codrington. Uncommon, with no copies traced in the UK; just two copies were traced on OCLC at the Library of Congress and the University of Illinois.

         BROADSIDE - SIEGE OF PARIS 1870-1871: SPECIMEN AUTHENTIQUE DES INFÂMES SPÉCULATIONS AUXQUELLES A DONNÉ LIEU LE SIÈGE DE PARIS 1870-1871

      Paris: Édouard Blot [March 6, ]. 1871 - Zincography (restored tears and tiny pieces of missin paper in folds, otherwise in a good condition) 50 x 32 cm (19.7 x 12.6 inches). A very rare first edition of a Republican anti-Monarchist propaganda bill, lists the prices of food, which included dogs, rats and cats, during the famine in occupied Paris in the years 1870 and 1871. - This is a very rare first edition of a bill, made directly after a famine in occupied Paris, which lasted between September 19, 1870 to January 28, 1871. The upper text blames the Government of National Defense (Gouvernement de la Défense nationale) for failing to provide enough food resources at the beginning of the siege and for protecting the interests of speculating of food merchants, who hid the food until the prices have risen to the following prices: 1 piece of garlic 0fr 50., 1 can of sardines 12fr 50, 1 cat .15fr, 1 carrot .2fr 25, ½ kg of chocolate 4fr, 1 truffled turkey 200fr, 1 chicory. 1fr 25, 1 rabbit. 60fr, 1 egg. 2fr 75, 1 pigeon . 14fr, 1 hen. 70fr, 1 chicken. 50fr, 1 rat.2fr 25, ½ kg dog meat.3fr 50, ½ kg mutton . 12fr, ½ kg donkey meat.12fr etc.A daily salary of a National Guard soldier was 1fr 50. The bill is signed with »Un Cordon Bleu« and initials L. G. Le Cordon Bleu or The Blue Ribbon, origins from the a 16th century order of the Knights of the Holy Spirit (Ordre des Chevaliers du Saint Esprit), which bore crosses on blue ribbons. Known for their lavish parties the expression the blue ribbon became synonimous with exellence and good cooking. Although the order was abolished after the French Revolution, the name remained in the popular culture. On this bill the name adds a sartactic note to the absurd situation during the Siege of Paris between 1870-1871. The printer, signed below was Édouard Blot. Blot was a Parisian printer, specialized in Arabic and Hebrew printing, often calling himself "imprimerie polyglotte" in imprints. Blot also printed broadsides and books in French. Most of his imprints were issued in smaller numbers and are today rare. Blot’s address is recorded on different locations,such as Rue Bleue 1, Rue St. Louis 46, and Rue Turenne 68 in Paris. The bill was only sold in a wine shop by Mr. Pigeol on the corner of Rue Montmartre and Rue du Croissant.Historical Background - In the winter of 1870-1871 Paris was occupied by Prussian army during the Franco-Prussian War(19 July 1870 – 10 May 1871). Between September 19, 1870 and January 28, 1871, during a severe winter, the city was isolated from the rest of France of 4 months, 1 week and 2 days. Due to severe shortage of food, Parisians were forced to slaughter whatever animals at hand, including dogs, cats, rats, and even elephants from the zoo, which appeared on the Christmas menus of expensive Parisian restaurants. By the time of the liberation on January 28, the Parisians were ready to overthrow the contemporary Monarchist government. Only days after the liberation the first anti-government pamphlets and bills, such as this one, were being distributed around Paris by the Republicans, one of them obviously being a wine merchant Mr. Pigeol on the corner of Rue Montmartre and Rue du Croissant. On March 28, 1871, Parisian workers and members of the National Guard rebelled and established the Paris Commune, with a radical and socialist government, which lasted fort wo months, until May 28, 1871. Different Variations of the Bill -- This is the rare first known state of the bill. Through contemporary literature and records of institutional copies, we could trace three different versions of this bill, all catalogued by the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris: 1- our copy printed by Blot on thinner paper, with a simple bordure, 2 – a more elaborate version of the bill, also printed by Blot, with identical text, but with Parisian arms and with elaborate bordure, 3 – a bill with same text, printed in Bordeaux .

         Middlemarch: a study of provincial life

      Edinburgh & London: William Blackwood and Sons,, 1871–2. 4 volumes, octavo. Original bright blue sand-grain cloth, front cover with three-line outer border and decorative three-sided frame in black, rustic lettering in gold; spines lettered in gold, decorative band in gold at top and tail of spine between black rules, rear cover with three-line border blocked in blind, brown coated endpapers. Expert restoration to joints. Spines gently rolled, lightly toned, slight wear to extremities, minor soiling and abrasions to boards, top edge dust toned; a very good set. First edition in book form of George Eliot's sixth and greatest novel. The book proved problematic in some ways, being slow in composition and growing too long for the traditional three-decker format. It was Lewes who suggested to Blackwood that, on the model of Victor Hugo's Les Misérables, it should be serialized in eight parts at two-monthly intervals, and published in book form in four volumes. Sadleir notes that Middlemarch is difficult to find in fine state, as many of the four-volume book issues in cloth went to libraries, Middlemarch being particularly popular (Sadleir, p. 378).

Le 4 septembre 1870, à la suite d'une journée d'émeutes parisiennes, l'Empire est renversé. Un gouvernement de défense nationale s'installe à l'hôtel de ville de Paris officiellement pour poursuivre la guerre contre les États allemands, dont les troupes occupent le nord du pays. Selon certaines interprétations, dont celle de l'historien Henri Guillemin, ce gouvernement issu de la classe dominante aurait surtout oeuvré à signer la capitulation et à faire accepter la défaite aux Français dans le but d'enrayer la menace du socialisme parisien, qui sans l'aide des Allemands aurait été incontrôlable. Paris est assiégée et connaît une grave famine au cours de l'hiver 1870-1871. Les Français, humiliés, apprennent que l'Empire allemand a été proclamé dans la galerie des Glaces du château de Versailles le 18 janvier 1871. Le 28 janvier 1871, Jules Favre signe avec le chancelier allemand Bismarck un armistice qui prévoit, outre l'arrêt des hostilités pour une période de quinze jours renouvelables, la convocation d'une assemblée nationale chargée notamment de décider de la poursuite de la guerre ou de la conclusion de la paix. Les élections législatives du 8 février, organisées dans la précipitation pour ratifier au plus vite l'armistice, envoient une forte proportion de monarchistes (400 députés), candidats des listes « pour la paix », à l'Assemblée nationale. La plus grande partie des élus représentants Paris sont eux des républicains des listes « pour la guerre », souvent extrémistes. En effet, le peuple parisien pense s'être correctement défendu et ne se considère pas comme vaincu. Il existe un fossé grandissant, confinant parfois à l'exaspération, entre les provinces et la capitale. La guerre de 1870 a profondément marqué la ville, qui a subi un siège très dur et dont la population a souffert de la faim. L'armistice de janvier 1871 paraît insupportable aux Parisiens, qui ont résisté à l'ennemi pendant près de quatre mois. « Les insurgés vibraient d'un patriotisme de gauche que la honte de la défaite exaspérait. » L'attitude du gouvernement n'est pas conciliante, notamment lorsqu'il nomme trois bonapartistes aux postes de préfet de police (Louis Ernest Valentin), de chef de la Garde nationale (le général d'Aurelle de Paladines) et de gouverneur (le général Vinoy), nominations vécues comme une provocation par les Parisiens. Le 9 mars 1871, le préfet de police interdit les principaux journaux d'extrême gauche, dont Le Cri du peuple de Jules Vallès. L'attitude de l'Assemblée, royaliste et pacifiste, qualifiée d'« assemblée de ruraux » par les Parisiens, contribue à l'exacerbation des tensions. Le 10 mars 1871, elle transfère son siège de Paris à Versailles parce qu'elle voit, à juste titre, dans Paris « le chef-lieu de la révolution organisée, la capitale de l'idée révolutionnaire »5. Par une loi du même jour, elle met fin au moratoire sur les effets de commerce, acculant à la faillite des milliers d'artisans et de commerçants, et supprime la solde d'un franc cinquante par jour payée aux gardes nationaux.
