        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1874 - 1874 Original Front Wrapper Incredibly Rare

      1874. On offer here is an 1874 Wisden that has it's original front wrapper together with a facsimile spine and rear wrapper. After the 1875 and 1864 and perhaps the 1869, 1874 is the rarest of all Wisden and I think only one has been offered for sale on Wisden Auction before. This copy retains it's original front wrapper but as will be seen from the photograph it has areas of darkening and discolouration and the bottom right hand corner has been restored. The first few pages also have areas of discolouration but in my view these do not detract from the book itself. The discolouration lessens so that by the time you reach page 11 there is no trace. The remaining contents are complete, original and in very nice condition. The last page has the remains of a sellotape mark to it. The spine and facsimile rear cover have been very sympathetically done and are in fine condition. Overall this is a very presentable copy of a very rare book. If a prospective purchaser would prefer I could have the book rebound by Scriveners Bookbinders in Buxton, Derbyshire who do a fabulous job of rebinding Wisden in a variety leather and cloth bindings. Don't hesitate to ask for details.

        Japan and the Japanese, Illustrated (Manners and Customs of the Japanese) [Provenance - Edward Lear]

      London: Richard Bentley & Son, 1874. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. First English edition, quarto size, 397 pp., signed by Edward Lear. First English edition, translated from the original French edition of 1868. A richly illustrated account of the manners and customs of the Japanese, as observed and recorded by Aime Humbert-Droz (1819-1900), President of the Swiss Council of States in 1856. The preface tells us that M. Humbert "obtained his copious material during a residence of two years in the country, 1863-1864, as Minister Plenipotentiary of the Swiss Republic; availing himself of the privilege of travelling outside the barriers of the foreign settlement at Yokohoma, a privilege at that time exclusively accorded to diplomatists of the Treaty Powers, to obtain subjects for his pen and pencil in quarters inaccessible to the ordinary inquirer." The content is wide in geographical scope, including Benten, Kioto, Kamakoura, and Yeddo, covering everything from the architecture, natural scenery, temples, tea houses, domestic life, the origin and genesis of Japan, the early sovereigns of Japan, art and fashion, ancient history, imperial power, Buddhism in Japan, districts, rivers, canals, political systems, railways, education and literature, drama, art, Christianity in Japan, and many other aspects and details of Japan heightened with rich illustrations.___PROVENANCE: This was Edward Lear's (1812-1888) copy, with his signature on the title page as well as the names of his two famous villas in San Remo, Italy. "Villa Emily" is scratched out and replaced with "Villa Tennyson 1876." He named Villa Emily after his friend, and the wife of the poet Alfred Tennyson, whose work Lear had ambition to illustrate. Soon after Villa Emily was completed a hotel was erected in front of it, obstructing its picturesque views. Lear was furious and immediately sold the villa, having an identical one built at the seaside in San Remo, naming it Villa Tennyson. Evidence of his frustration can be seen in his decision to cross out Villa Emily on the title page of this volume, which must have been in his library at the time. Lear is best known for his ornithological illustrations with Elizabeth and John Gould, and for his limericks or "Nonsense" works.___DESCRIPTION: Original full red cloth with gilt- and black- stamped pictorial upper board and backstrip, professionally re-backed with the original cloth preserved, glazed black-blue endpapers, binders stamp of G. Hargens San Francisco to lower pastedown, title-page printed in black and red with vignette, over 200 fine engravings in text; quarto size (text block just under 12" by 9.25"), pagination: [i-v] vi-xvii [1-4] 5-378 [2 ads] pp., first English edition, signed by previous owner Edward Lear on the title-page.___CONDITION: Internally near fine, we are rating as very good copy overall with all the leaves and plates intact, internally bright with only minimal foxing, professional repairs to one leaf (Table of Contents) and backstrip, other than those some minor bumping at the corners, this is a very good copy with a strong provenance.___POSTAGE: Please note that this is a heavy volume and therefore additional postage may apply; please inquire for details.___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Adam's Coelometer.

      c1874. 1874 - A possibly unique instrument exhibiting the complex laws of nautical astronomy Terrestrial globe (6 inches dia.), suspended on a rotating axis and surrounded by a system of circles in lacquered and oxidised brass representing the whole astronomical nomenclature: the elliptical true horizon indicator ring, the equinox ring and detachable hinged star cage, set with gilt star constellations and engraved with names, including Ursa Major, Cassiopea, Orion, Bootes; the whole system is mounted on a single swiveling bracket with threaded securing nuts on a mahogany pedestal, inset maker's label inscribed 'Adam's Cœlometer'. Adam's instrument was exhibited at the Vienna World Exhibition of 1873, alongside two companion inventions, the Mensurator and an illustration of the problem of Pythagoras. The jury gave them amedal of merit. The three instruments had the same object, that is the "embodiment of abstract mathematical conceptions and relations in a visible and tangible form". The Coelometer shows, in a concrete form, all the conceptions necessary for nautical astronomy and the relations between them. It illustrates celestial longitude and latitude, the phenomenon of the seasons, the correspondence of the calendar with the solar year, the precession of the equinoxes, the times of sunrise and sunset at any place any day, the position of the principal stars during the night, and the general relations between the conceptions necessary for nautical astronomy. "We have reckoned that not less than fifty of the chief conceptions of elementary astronomy and navigation may be readily illustrated by the coelometer. To give a clear view of its comprehensiveness, we may mention the following: It shows the two horizons with the correction for dip, the equation of time, the precession of the equinoxes, declination, right ascension, the hours of sunrise and sunset, true and apparent altitudes of heavenly bodies above the horizon of any place; it shows how to determine the latitude by an observation, first, of the meridian altitude of the sun, second, of the pole star, and third, of two stars simultaneously upon the horizon; to find the time at any place by the culminating of a given star, what stars are visible at any place at any hour of the night, the celestial phaenomena of a voyage to the antipodes. The principle upon which observation for longitude are taken at 9 A.M. instead of noon, how longitude is found by an observation of the moon, how Greenwich mean time is calculated by the chronometer, the correction for parallax and refraction, &c' (Engineering Magazine). Marsham Adams was a fellow of New College, Oxford, author of 'Zenobia: a Tragedy' and 'A Popular History of Fisheries and Fishermen of all countries, from the earliest times'. Nautical Magazine, November 1874, pp.1025-1026; Engineering Magazine 1875, p.145.

        Carta geografica delle strade comunali obbligatorie - Umbria

      1874. Carta corografica in sei fogli, applicata su tela a stacchi, conservata nella propria cartelletta originale con impresso in oro il titolo. Il rilievo si riferisce alla situazione riscontrata dal Ministero dei Lavori Pubblici - Direzione Generale dei Ponti e Strade verso la metà degli anni settanta del XIX secolo. Il lavoro venne svolto per conoscere lo stato di attuazione della legge 30 agosto del 1868, che prevedeva la costruzione di un notevole numero di strade al fine di collegare tutti i territori del Regno d'Italia. Avvincente cartografia del Compartimento dell'Umbria di cui fornisce una dettagliata rappresentazione del sistema viario e confinale. Nella legenda, applicata all'interno del piatto anteriore, vengono segnalati i limiti di Provincia, di Circondario e di Comune. Per quanto riguarda le strade ferrate sono segnalate sia quelle in esercizio, quelle in costruzione e quelle da costruire aventi concessione. Lo stesso discorso vale per le varie tipologie di strade: Nazionali, Provinciali sino alle Comunali Obbligatorie. Queste ultime rappresentano forse il corpus più interessante poiché sono segnalate le strade da costruire di cui si hanno i progetti, quelle i cui progetti sono in corso di compilazione e quelle di cui mancano i progetti. Si trovano segnalati anche il Limite di Provincia, di Circondario e quello di Comune. Interessante testimonianza inerente la gestione ed organizzazione territoriale del nostro paese. Ottima conservazione

        ABDUCTION OF CHARLIE BREWSTER ROSS/ ON JULY 1ST, 1874, AT ABOUT FOUR O'CLOCK, P.M., CHARLIE BREWSTER, AND WALTER, THE LATTER ABOUT SIX YEARS OLD, SONS OF CHRISTIAN K. ROSS, WERE TAKEN FROM THE SIDE-WALK IN FRONT OF THEIR FATHER'S RESIDENCE, ON WASHINGTON LANE, GERMANTOWN, PA., BY TWO MEN IN A BUGGY. WALTER WAS CARRIED ABOUT FIVE MILES, AND THERE LEFT UPON THE STREET; BUT OF CHARLIE NO SUBSEQUENT CLUE HAS BEEN OBTAINED..

      Philadelphia: Wm F. Murphy's Sons, Printers & Stationers, 1874. 5.5" x 8.5", as folded. [3], [1 blank] pp. Caption title [as issued]. Albumen head-and-shoulders oval portrait of Charlie Brewster Ross is pasted at the head of title. Pinkerton issued this document explaining the abduction, describing Charlie and his kidnappers, listing questions to pose to the child if found for identification, and reward information. Tanned, light waterstaining. Several wormholes in blank margins, light chipping to top edges [no text loss]. Good+. Charles Brewster Ross was born in 1870 to Christian and Sarah Ross in Germantown, a suburb of Philadelphia. On July 1, 1874, two men in a buggy kidnapped Charlie and his six year old brother Walter. The kidnappers let Walter go after five miles and kept Charlie. Having assumed, incorrectly, that Christian Ross was wealthy, the kidnappers sent a ransom demand for $20,000. Despite living in a large house in an upper class neighborhood, Christian was deeply in debt; his wife's wealthy merchant brothers, who lived close by, put up the ransom. Three attempts were made to pay the kidnappers by way of police stings; all were unsuccessful. The family hired Pinkerton's National Detective Agency. Allan Pinkerton issued this handbill and attached an albumen picture of Charlie to all copies. Over the next four months the kidnappers mailed 23 ransom notes. By November, 1874, the police zeroed in on William Mosher and Joseph Douglas, two known criminals. Unfortunately, they were both shot during a robbery in December 1874. Mosher died instantly; Douglas admitted in his dying breath that they had indeed kidnapped Charlie, but that only Mosher knew where the child was held. Police had no leads as to his location other than one ransom note which mentioned the $20,000 as the "lever" which could move the rock which hid their son. In 1875, as a direct result of this case, Pennsylvania became the first State to call kidnapping a felony. In 1876 Christian Ross released a book detailing the story of his son's kidnapping in hopes of raising money to continue the search for him. Charlie was never found. [Ross, Christian Kunket: THE FATHER'S STORY OF CHARLEY ROSS, THE KIDNAPPED CHILD: CONTAINING A FULL AND COMPLETE ACCOUNT...; J.E. Potter & Co. 1876.] Allan Pinkerton had been a Chicago police officer in the 1840s, and was appointed its first police detective in 1847. He opened his detective agency in 1850, hiring Kate Warne as the first American female detective, serving as head of the Union Intelligence Service during the Civil War, and recruiting John Scobell as the first African-American Union Intelligence Agent. Pinkerton foiled an assassination attempt on president-elect Lincoln in 1861, and invented the photographic mug shot. He used small albumen photographs on wanted posters for train robbers and outlaws. This photographic circular for the abduction of Charlie Ross is believed to be the first of its kind prepared for a kidnapping case; Pinkerton is said to have printed over 100,000 copies. Although not the first kidnapping and ransom case, the Ross case grew in notoriety thanks to Pinkerton's circular which received national recognition. Pinkerton Investigative Services is still in existence today. [www.pinkerton.com/history] OCLC 81570874 [5], 33979081 [3] [as of September 2015].

        Carta delle Province Napolitane in fogli 25 - Fotoincisa col procedimento del Generale Avet alla scala di 1 250.000. Pubblicata dall'Istituto Topografico Militare - 1874

      1874. La presente carta venne tratta da una manoscritta che si trovava negli Archivi dell'ex-Ufficio Topografico di Napoli. Quest'ultima venne realizzata dallo Stato Maggiore Austriaco, nella scala di 1 a 103680, durante l'occupazione del Regno, dal 1821 al 1824. La cartografia austriaca non era che una trasformazione della nota carta del Rizzi Zannoni: la planimetria fu di poco modificata, mentre si diede maggior risalto all'orografia, sostituendo, previa ricognizione del terreno, con il metodo del tratteggio a luce zenitale quello della prospettiva cavaliera, modalità con cui sono solitamente raffigurate le alture nelle carte del Rizzi Zannoni. Nonostante la carta non dipendesse da rilievi regolari e men che meno dalla coordinazione di questi ad una rete di punti geodetici il "Comitato dello Stato Maggiore credè di rendere un servigio alle varie Amministrazioni dello Stato ed al pubblico, deliberando, sin dall'anno 1868, di utilizzarla (in via transitoria, intanto che si compivano i rilievi regolari nelle province meridionali) con lo scopo di somministrare una guida sufficiente al militare, al geografo ed al viaggiatore. La carta fu riconosciuta sul terreno negli anni 1868 e 1869, onde completarvi il sistema delle strade ruotabili a fondo manufatto. Di poi si operò il disegno dei vari fogli alla scala di 1 a 125000, in vista di una riproduzione a quella di 1 a 250000, che fu adottata per la pubblicazione. Così ridotta essa consta di 25 fogli. La riproduzione ne fu eseguita con il sistema di foto-incisione del Maggior Generale Conte Avet.". *La carta si presenta applicata su tela a stacchi ed è conservata nella cartelletta originale che presenta difetti al piatto anteriore. Nel complesso ottima conservazione.*Cenni sulla costruzione della carta

This copy is uncommonly well preserved in a handsome binding of excellent lineage. COOMASSIE AND MAGDALA is the story of the great British campaigns in East and West Africa. "Coomassie was a town insulated by a deadly swamp. A thick jungly forest - so dense that the sun seldom pierced the foliage; so sickly that the strongest fell victims to the malaria it cherished - surrounded it to a depth of 140 miles seaward, many hundred miles east, as many more west, and 100 miles north. Through this forest and swamp, unrelieved by a single novelty or a single pretty landscape, the British army had to march..." Henry Stanley, from his preface.

        Daily diary of a 16 year old girl, documenting her rural life and eventual enrollment at the prestigious Morgan School of Connecticut

      Connecticut: January 1-December 31, 1874. Black cloth-and-card bound wallet diary comprised of 281 handwritten pages documenting the life and education of 16 year old Nellie Wilcox, who transitions from life on her family's farm and into attendance at the prestigious Morgan School still in operation today. An exceptional glimpse into how formal education changes the life of a young American woman and her family. Given to Nellie as a gift from her cousin Ida, who inscribes the front free endpaper with a pair of friendship poems, the diary is a detailed account that begins on January 1, 1874 with Nellie's comment that "I neglected to keep my diary last year, and it seemed so lonesome that I am going to try and do better this year." In her daily entries throughout the spring, Nellie consistently reports on which of the children in the family were allowed to attend the local country school for the day, and which were kept home due to sickness or chores on the farm. Several times in January and March she notes that "the boys have been to school but I have not," despite her interest in studying. She additionally reports on visitors to the family, household tasks such as cooking and sewing, on her father's tobacco harvest, and on an outbreak of measles in the community. Even at this stage, she is observant of local politics, commenting in March on a small scandal that leads to her pastor's resignation and in April on the elections: "The democrats have gained a complete victory this spring, elected to the state ticket, and seventeen senators out of twenty one." By the end of the term, Nellie and her cousin Ida have earned positions at the Morgan School, where they will attend classes and live in a ladies' boarding house. This marks a major shift in Nellie's writing, as her entries now document the essays she composes, the exams she takes, and the lessons she learns. She writes as classes begin in the fall, "I have not written one word in my diary this vacation; when Mother saw it she said never mind, but keep it up while you are at Clinton." What the entries from here on show is a woman growing in intelligence and sophistication, who excels socially and academically. Nellie writes about courses in Latin, rhetoric, algebra, and music; she discusses meetings she attends; she documents the emotional hardships and depression of some of the girls around her; she expresses concern over her changing religious views; and she reveals her own developing taste in literature ("I have been reading Jane Eyre, one of Charlotte Bronte's books which was taken from the Morgan library.

        "Skandalkonzert" 1913

      Famous Austrian composer (1874-1951), and also painter, who established in the US after 1934 escaping from nazism. Autograph music quote from his famous work Chamber Symphony Nr. 1 in E Major, Op. 9, 4 bars of music, on a white paper card, folded to a size of 3.8 x 6 inches, in excellent condition. Written in 1906 and premiered in 1907, this piece was played in the infamous "Skandalkonzert" in 1913 (read more about it here), which was interrupted by rioting from an audience not well impressed with the experimental music. Composer Oscar Straus was present, and later testified that a punch in someone´s face he heard that night was "the most harmonious sound I heard that evening". ALSO INCLUDED is a half-tone portrait of the composer, probably taken from a book, size is 5.75 x 8.25 inches, in very good condition. A nice item to collect and frame with the autograph music quote, if desired. WATCH THIS WORK, performed by the Sinfonieorchester des Südwestfunks, conducted by Erich Leinsdorf:

        Daily diary of a 16 year old girl, documenting her rural life and eventual enrollment at the prestigious Morgan School of Connecticut.

      Connecticut: January 1-December 31, 1874. Black cloth-and-card bound wallet diary comprised of 281 handwritten pages documenting the life and education of 16 year old Nellie Wilcox, who transitions from life on her family's farm and into attendance at the prestigious Morgan School still in operation today. An exceptional glimpse into how formal education changes the life of a young American woman and her family. Given to Nellie as a gift from her cousin Ida, who inscribes the front free endpaper with a pair of friendship poems, the diary is a detailed account that begins on January 1, 1874 with Nellie's comment that "I neglected to keep my diary last year, and it seemed so lonesome that I am going to try and do better this year." In her daily entries throughout the spring, Nellie consistently reports on which of the children in the family were allowed to attend the local country school for the day, and which were kept home due to sickness or chores on the farm. Several times in January and March she notes that "the boys have been to school but I have not," despite her interest in studying. She additionally reports on visitors to the family, household tasks such as cooking and sewing, on her father's tobacco harvest, and on an outbreak of measles in the community. Even at this stage, she is observant of local politics, commenting in March on a small scandal that leads to her pastor's resignation and in April on the elections: "The democrats have gained a complete victory this spring, elected to the state ticket, and seventeen senators out of twenty one." By the end of the term, Nellie and her cousin Ida have earned positions at the Morgan School, where they will attend classes and live in a ladies' boarding house. This marks a major shift in Nellie's writing, as her entries now document the essays she composes, the exams she takes, and the lessons she learns. She writes as classes begin in the fall, "I have not written one word in my diary this vacation; when Mother saw it she said never mind, but keep it up while you are at Clinton." What the entries from here on show is a woman growing in intelligence and sophistication, who excels socially and academically. Nellie writes about courses in Latin, rhetoric, algebra, and music; she discusses meetings she attends; she documents the emotional hardships and depression of some of the girls around her; she expresses concern over her changing religious views; and she reveals her own developing taste in literature ("I have been reading Jane Eyre, one of Charlotte Bronte's books which was taken from the Morgan library. I have not finished it yet but think it is splendid."). The diary concludes with Nellie's monthly accounts, which show her expenses for boarding, clothes, and tutoring while away from home. An important historical case study of a young woman's growth as she gains access to education. (Item #2024).

        11 lettres du cardinal Perraud, évêque d'Autun.

      - 11 lettres autographes signées 21 In-8 et in-12 1874-1903 En-têtes de l'évêché d'Autun. bon Belle correspondance du cardinal Perraud à divers correspondants, débutant au moment de sa nomination à l'évêché d'Autun. "J'arrive enfin à vous. Je dis enfin, à cause des 300 et qq. lettres que j'ai écrites depuis 6 semaines pour répondre à toutes les marques de sympathie dont on m'a comblé [.]. Je ne tarderai pas à retourner à Paris dont j'ai dû fuir les agitations pour me recueillir dans la solitude [.]". Il disserte sur l'art de l'orateur, commentant l'ouvrage de son correspondant : "En ce qui me concerne personnellement, je me sentirais plus porté à suivre la méthode que vous recommandez. C'était celle de Fénelon. Cela ne veut pas dire que Bourdaloue et Massillon ne fussent pas des maîtres dans la parole bien qu'ils suivissent une méthode différente [.]". Il interpelle le duc d'Aumale sur la situation d'un "courageux travailleur", commente un ouvrage sur un "poète d'origine autunoise qui fut un bienfaiteur des pauvres de Beaune", assiste à un congrès anti-esclavagiste, prend part à la douleur d'un décès et se remémore son épiscopat. "Hier, toute la journée, je pensais, je sentais combien étaient unis en Dieu nos souvenirs et nos prières. Je repassais dans mon coeur la scène attendrissante des suprêmes adieux avec cet ami si cher, et, tout en regrettant de ne plus l'avoir avec nous pour partager nos tristesses, nos efforts, nos combats, nos blessures, je me réjouissais fraternellement de le savoir pour jamais fixé dans cette paix "que le monde ne peut pas donner" et qu'il ne peut pas non plus ôter. J'ai dit la Ste messe pour lui dans une de ces petites églises rurales qu'il eût aimées et où j'étais entouré de silence et de recueillement, quelques heures avant de la voir remplie pour la continuation de mon grand labeur pastoral. Commencé le 28 avril, il touche presque à son terme et sera entièrement achevé, au Creusot, le 6 juillet. Je demande à N.S. par l'intercession de nos chers amis de là haut, de vous soutenir au milieu de vos indicibles tristesses. Les miennes sont bien grandes aussi et il ne se passe guère de jours où le coeur de l'évêque et du français ne soit profondément atteint. C'est ainsi que se termine demain ma 29e année d'épiscopat, la 30e devant commencer avec la matinée de lundi. Oui, il y aura après-demain 29 années révolues qu'à S. Sulpice, des mains du très vénéré card. Guibert, je recevais l'onction des Pontifes [.]". Oratorien, évêque, cardinal et historien, il fut évêque d'Autun (1874-1906) et membre de l'Académie française. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Burmese subjects A group of costume studies of Burmese of men and women from various ethnic groups.

      - 16 original watercolours, heightened with body white, each signed M.T. Hla, lower right, each c.21 x 15.5 cm. in uniform mounts, bearing a contemporary seller's label of Smart and Mookerdum, Rangoon. This fascinating group depicts 8 pairs of men and women from 7 different ethnic groups, comprising the Padaung, where the woman is depicted wearing the characteristic brass neck rings, the Shan, Chin, Kachin, Palaung, Karen, and two different pairs from the Taung Yo people. The Burmese artist, Maung Tun Hla (1874–1946) was an early pioneer of the Western style of watercolour. At the beginning of the 20th century, he received inspiration and guidance from a visiting British artist, Sir Gerald Kelly (1879-1972), whose great reputation was, itself, to become based on his depictions of Burmese people and landscape. Kelly was later elected President of the Royal Academy. Hla, who always signed his works M.T. Hla, also went on to achieve great success in his own country, his works hanging in the grandest hotels, their popularity with Burmese and British patrons earning him a great fortune. Such figure studies as this group of 16, were outside any tradition previously known in Burma, and correspond more to the Western ethnographic interest in such subjects. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
