        A narrative of the visit of His Highness the Sultan of Zanzibar to Europe in 1875

      An-Nahlah Press, London 1879 - 92 pp, with several illustrations. FIRST EDITION. An interesting travel account of the journey of Sultan Barghash of Zanzibar to Europe. In 1875 Sir John Kirk brought the Sultan an official invitation to visit Britain, and the two arrived in London in June of the same year where he was received by the Royal Family. There he visited the horse races at Ascot, the opera and the theatre, and travelled to towns across England including Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester where he visited factories and was shown examples of new technology, such as lifts, which he incorporated into his new palace, the Beit el Ajaib (House of Wonders) constructed in Zanzibar in the 1870’s. The Sultan and his entourage were dressed in traditional Omani Arab clothing, with turbans, long cloaks, and khanjars (daggers), embedding this image of Eastern splendour, elegance and exoticism in the public mind, where he became not only fashionable but also popular. After four weeks of intensive sightseeing and entertainment, Barghash and his party returned to Zanzibar via Paris and Marseilles, arriving home in September. The Sultan’s trip was meticulously recorded by Barghash’s secretary and companion Zahir bin Said, and sent to his friend in London the Syrian journalist and publisher John Louis Sabunji, and at the Sultans request based on Zahir’s notes and contemporary English and French newspaper accounts, Sabunji compiled a comprehensive Arabic account of the Sultan’s visit. Sabunji subsequently printed the travel account in 1879 under the title Tanzih al-absar wal-afkar fi rihlat Sultan Zanjabar (‘The Recreation of the Sight and Mind; A Narrative of the Visit of His Highness the Sultan of Zanzibar’). It is a detailed account, illustrated with many drawings of the persons whom Barghash met and of the sites of interest that he visited. Sabunji was the publisher of the popular Arabic language magazine in London called The Bee or An-Nahlah and held close ties with the Sultan of Zanzibar and other political figures in the Arab World. Barghash helped finance An-Nahlah and in exchange for funds Sabunji not only praised Barghash excessively in An-Nahla, but the Sultan also employed him. This is reflected, firstly by this travel account that Sabunji compiled, and secondly, by the translations that Sabunji made for Barghash of British reports and letters discussing the abolition of the slave trade in Zanzibar in 1873. Extremely Rare, OCLC lists only two copies. No copies recorded at auction. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Good Words for 1879 [with an Autograph Letter Signed from.]. Edited by Donald Macleod.

      London: Isbister and Company Limited 1879 - Large 8vo. vi, 862, 72 pp. Contemporary purple pebbled cloth, gilt lettered and ruled to the spine, an autograph letter from Florence Nightingale to the editor of the magazine bound in at the front of the volume regarding an article she proposed for publication. Illustrations throughout. Spine faded to brown with a few marks and slight wear at the ends, else very good. The letter is on South Street, Park Lane headed paper and dated 4th June, 1879. Nightingale writes asking whether the editor of "Good Words" would like her to submit articles for the succeeding two issues on the famine in the Bombay Presidency, there having been widespread famine across swathes of India in the preceding three years. She goes on to mention the "present Poona [Pune] riots", presumably a reference to the insurrection led by the Indian nationalist Vasudev Balwant Phadke. Most famous for her work during the Crimean War, a significant part of her subsequent medical career was devoted to the improvement of medical provision for the British army and the indigenous civilian population in India. The letter is composed on a single folio sheet folded once, her correspondence on the first page with a note from Macleod in red ink on the final page reading "I have told Miss F.N. to send these papers the first part by Monday next". The published articles duly appeared in this volume in three tranches, titled "A Missionary Health Officer in India", in which she appraises the conditions that allowed the famine to take such a fearsome grip of the country - estimates suggest that over five million people died as a direct result of it - and expresses criticism of the unevenness and at times unconscionable response of the British administration and the money-lenders who exploited the dire situation.

        Atlas anthropologique des peuples du Ferghanah.

      Paris, Ernest Leroux, 1879. - 4to (174 x 260 mm). 16 pp. Includes 34 (of 70) loose albumen photographs, images approximately 130 x 100 mm each, mounted separately and numbered, housed in a modern album. Text volume in original paper wrappers. Rare anthropoligical publication, with original photographic documentation, of the inhabitants of the Fergana region in the extreme east of Uzbekistan, near Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. - Born in Transylvania, Károly Jenö (Charles Eugene) Ujfalvy de Mezokövesd (1842-1904) was a noted Austro-Hungarian ethographic researcher and linguist of Central Asia and the Himalayas. He settled in France, where he was trained by the noted anthropologist Paul Broca, and taught Asian history and geography at the School of Oriental Languages. The Ministry of Education sent him on a mission to Russia, Siberia, Turkestan and Uzbekistan in 1876, on which journeys he recorded these images of locals in the region. (Ujfalvy would also travel to Samarkand and Bokhara and lead an expedition to the Kashmir in 1880.) This is the fourth of a total of six volumes concerning the French expedition to Central Asia. In his preface, Ujfalvy develops the aims of his enterprise and outlines the principles by which one may obtain anthropologically useful portraits: subjects are to be photographed in the nude, from the front and in profile, against a white background and using a light metre. The individuals, whose portraits measure exactly one-eighth of their natural size, are identified by name, race, sex, height, and age, as well as by the colour of the skin, the hair, and the eyes. The photographs were realised with the aid of one photographer "Kazlowski, le plus habile de Tachkend"; the present album likely constitutes his only published work. - Text volume chipped at edges with some repairs, otherwise good; photos well preserved.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1879 - 1879 Paperback Wisden, In Very Nice Condition for the year

      1879. Hi, This lot is an Original 1879 Wisden Paperback. 16th Edition in Orignal Paperback form as Wisden printed it. In Very Good Condition for the year, The book has not had any restoration but an ex owner has written 1879 to the spine (lettering started in 1887). As with 1878 the covers tend to wear a lot with the new style materials used by Wisden but these covers although some wear , and for a paperback, are nicer than many I have seen. The spine paper is complete but the first two pages are coming away slightly , after that it is tightly bound but some care needed at the front. Very nice inside. A chance to own a rare early paperback. The 1879 rebinds are a lot more common than the first 15 but this is less so in original paperback form in my experience , we havent sold many orignal 1879s since we started.

        The Economics of Industry.

      London: Macmillan and Co,, 1879. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine and boards lettered and ruled in black, brown endpapers. Pencilled ownership inscription to front free endpaper and annotations to rear free endpaper verso. Pages 3-14 separated from wire-stitching and loose. Spine rolled and slanted, extremities lightly rubbed, spine ends and corners bumped, boards a little scuffed and cockled, overall a very good copy. First edition of the British economists' jointly published primer containing an early exposition of Marshall's theoretical position on international trade and protection. Shortly after completing the Moral Sciences Tripos at Cambridge in 1874 (being one of the first women to take the examination, and one of the first five students at Newnham College), Mary Paley was commissioned by Macmillan to write a small economic textbook for Extension Lectures. After her marriage to Alfred Marshall in 1877 "its writing was increasingly taken over by him. This led to the insertion of much difficult material and forced many revisions over its three-year construction period. However, in its first and second parts particularly, many traces of its original author's style remain visible" (Groenewegen, p. 55). "This small textbook, reprinted many times and translated into several foreign languages, was rated very highly by contemporaries. J. M. Keynes went so far as to say: 'It was, in fact, an extremely good book; nothing more serviceable for its purpose was produced for many years, if ever'" (The New Palgrave III, p. 364).
