        Letters from a Cat. Published by Her Mistress for the Benefit of All Cats and the Amusement of Little Children

      Roberts Brothers, Boston 1880 - Early edition of this illustrated children's book by Helen Hunt Jackson, best remembered for her popular 1884 novel Ramona. In 1836, Jackson's mother mailed her five-year-old daughter, then traveling, a series of letters in the voice of the family cat: "until I grew to be a big girl, I never doubted but that Pussy printed them all alone by herself, after dark." Decades later, Jackson revisited the letters, which record Pussy's adventures and misadventures back home: she is frightened by an unusually thorough house cleaning, befriended by a "splendid black cat" named Caesar, and injured by a fall into the "soft, slimy, sticky" soap barrel, which burns off her fur. In Jackson's introduction, she recalls her devotion to her childhood pet, whose death was a turning point in her childhood: "My kind mother offered to get another kitten for me, but I did not want one. . . . I was as true to my Pussy as she was to me; and from that day to this, I have never had another Pussy!" Widely reprinted, Letters from a Cat first appeared in 1879 (BAL 10438). A near-fine copy. Small quarto, measuring 7.5 x 6 inches. Original green pictorial cloth stamped in gilt and black, grey floral endpapers. Decorative headpieces throughout text, seventeen black and white illustrations. Presentation inscription to flyleaf. Corners and spine ends lightly bumped, occasional smudge to text.

        PACIFIC - TAHITI] [Album of Fifty Early Original Photographs of Tahiti, Including Portraits of Queen Pomare IV, King Pomare V and His Wife, Queen of Bora Bora, French Naval Officers, Views of the French Naval Transport Ship Scorff, Matavai Bay, Titled:] Souvenirs l'Ocean Pacifique

      - Ca. 1880-1887. 32,5x25 cm. Sixty album leaves (ten blank). Fifty albumen prints (one in two copies) of various size, from 7x4,5 cm to ca. 20x25,5 cm, the majority are ca. 11x16,5 cm or slightly larger. Photographs are mounted on rectos of the album leaves (with one mounted on verso, one loosely inserted); the majority with period manuscript pencil or ink captions in French on the mounts. Nine photos additionally mounted on card (including five images on the cabinet cards of Papeete photo studios of Georges Spitz and Mrs. S. Hoare). Contemporary cloth album with colour stamped decorative ornament on the boards and spine; paper label with a faded ink title on the front cover, spine and back cover with some mild fading, but overall a very good album and strong interesting photographs. Interesting collection of early views of Tahiti taken by prominent local photographers just a few years after the annexation of the island by France in 1880. The photos were apparently collected by a French naval officer during his service in 1886-1887 on the transport ship 'Scorff' of the French Pacific Naval Division under command of Raymond Paul Adolphe Marie de Royer de Saint Julien (1849-1900). The album opens with a portrait of Queen Pomare IV taken by an important photographer of Tahiti Admiral Paul-Emile Miot in ca. 1870; a part of the outstanding series of photos of Oceania taken by Miot during his service as the chief of staff of the French Naval Pacific Division on board the frigate 'Astrée' in 1868-71. The other images in the album belong to the Papeete studios of Charles Spitz and Susan Hoare: five photos are mounted on the distinctive studio cards with printed names of the photographers, and eight more were identified on the basis of Jean-Yves Tréhin's ''Tahiti, l'Éden à l'épreuve de la photographie'' (Gallimard, 2003, see pp. 68, 72, 84, 85, 89, 94, 100, and others); the other images most likely were taken by the same studios, judging on the similar style and choice of objects. The photographs include several portraits of the rulers of the Society Islands, including those of Queen Pomare IV, King Pomare V and his wife Queen Marau, the king surrounded by his tohitus (chiefs), and the Queen of Bora Bora; the members of the influential Salmon family (the founder of the clan Alexander Salmon (1820-1866), a merchant from Britain, became the first Jew to reside in Tahiti); interesting studio group portraits of Tahitians in traditional costumes; a well-known portrait of a Marquesan warrior, families of the ''Tahitians from the interior'', and others. There are also interesting street views of Papeete and several photos of the interior of Tahiti (most likely taken by George Spitz during his travels across the island): Matavai Bay, Fautaua River and Falls, Le Diadème Peak, Taravao; and a distant view of the Moorea Island. Ten 'naval' photos include a portrait of Rear-Admiral Marcq de Saint-Hilaire, the commander of the Pacific Division at the time, group portrait of 'Scorff's' officers (in two copies), views of the 'Scorff', 'Décret', 'Duquesne' and other ships of the Pacific Division on the Tahitian roadstead, festivities on the 14th of July in the Papeete harbor, a large view of a military review, and others. There is also an interesting photo of the distribution of prizes at the first Papeete Catholic school for boys in 1886, featuring Delphino Moracchini (governor of French Polynesia in 1885-1886).

        Lettre autographe signée à la Comtesse Potocka : « Maupassant prêtre libre »

      1880 - - Paris s.d. [circa décembre 1880-juillet 1884], 10,1x13cm, 2 pages sur un feuillet rempliée. - Lettre autographe signée de Guy de Maupassant à la comtesse Potocka, 26 lignes à l'encre noire sur un feuillet de papier vergé à en-tête "GM 83, rue Dulong". Maupassant évoque l'épisode qui marque son entrée dans la familiarité avec la comtesse : la fameuse histoire des poupées. À la suite d'un pari perdu, la comtesse Potocka avait fait envoyer à Maupassant des poupées de chiffon représentant les dames invitées à un futur dîner. Par jeu, Maupassant pris six d'entre elles et leur bourra le ventre de tissu avant de les renvoyer à la comtesse. Dans un mot qui accompagnait l'envoi, Maupassant se vantait de les avoir toutes engrossées en une seule nuit. Pour se sortir d'une soirée qu'il préfèrerait passer chez la comtesse il a du : « [.] faire des démarches de diplomate, d'employer des ruses et des machinations des plus habiles. » Malgré tout, il ne pourra que se : « [.] sauver vers onze heures ou onze heures et demie. » Afin de connaître les invitées qui se trouveront à cette soirée, il demande à Potocka : « Il faudra me redonner six poupées ». Une petite boutade qui reflète leur niveau d'intimité. Il regrette de s'être engagé pour cette soirée qui l'empêche de se rendre chez la comtesse : « Voyez-vous où j'en suis ? La soirée pour laquelle je m'étais engagé ne devant commencer à être agréable que vers minuit, tous invités partis. » À bout, il se propose de : « [.] crier, comme le beau-frère de votre amie : "A moi le camphre et le nénuphar" ! », les deux substances étaient utilisées comme anaphrodisiaque ou pour calmer l'énervement. Malgré son peu d'envie, il devra se rendre à ce dîner mais il compte offrir : « [.] à Dieu, et à Vous, ce sacrifice qui me semblera délicieux. Je viendrai avec des sentiments de contrition et d'exaltation sacrée. » Pour conclure la plus humoristique des lettres de Maupassant à la comtesse Potocka, l'auteur signe : « Maupassant prêtre libre ». [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Signed autograph letter of Guy de Maupassant to Countess Potocka, 26 lines in black ink on a sheet of laid paper headed "GM 83 Dulong Street". Maupassant evokes the episode that marks his entry into familiarity with the countess: the famous story of dolls. Following a lost bet, the Countess Potocka sent Maupassant rag dolls representing the ladies invited to a future dinner. By play, Maupassant took six of them and stuffed them with the belly of cloth before autograph dedication of the author them back to the countess. In a word that accompanied the mail, Maupassant boasted of having them all engrossed in one night. To get out of an evening that he would prefer to spend with the countess he had to "[.] make diplomacy, employ the ruses and machinations of the most skilful. In spite of everything, he will only be able to: "[.] save around eleven o'clock or eleven thirty. In order to know the guests who will be at the party, he asks Potocka: " I'll have to give six dolls back to me ". A little joke that reflects their level of intimacy. He regrets to have committed for this evening which prevents him from going to the countess's house: " Do you see where I am? The evening for which I had engaged should not begin to be pleasant until midnight, all guests left. At last, he proposes to: "[.] scream, like the brother-in-law of your friend:" To me camphor and water lily "! Both substances were used as anaphrodisiac or to calm nervousness. Despite his lack of desire, he will have to go to this dinner but he plans to offer: "[.] to God, and to you, this sacrifice which will seem delicious to me. I will come with feelings of contrition and sacred exaltation. To conclude the most humorous of Maupassant's letters to Countess Potocka, the author signs: " Maupassant free priest ."

        [SHIPBOARD PRINTING] Southern Cross and Lusitania Herald. No. 1. Wednesday, October 20th, 1880.

      [Lusitania : at sea, Australia bound], October 20 1880. Folio, [4] pp bifolium of bluish laid paper with watermark of W. Howard Kent and Britannia surmounted by crown, lightly ruled in blue; drop-head title; the first 3 pages with mimeographed printing in purple ink of a manuscript text; pages 1 and 2 in two columns, page 3 with single column text, and a cartoon illustration; final page not printed, but with a contemporary annotation in ink referring to one of the passengers, 'David Coffey / Shoes Boots / Merchandise'; original folds, two spots of old glue residue at bottom and top margins (not encroaching on text); the printing has faded badly in a couple of sections, although the text is complete and mostly legible; [together with] [Concert Programme] Orient S.S. Lusitania / London to Sydney / Grand Vocal and Instrumental Concert / Friday 18th Oct. 1880. [Lusitania : at sea, Australia bound], October 18 1880. Single leaf, small octavo (176 x 113 mm), on laid paper, printed on one side only in purple ink (as the preceding item), comprising a manuscript list of the 15 acts performed at a concert by named passengers; original vertical and horizontal folds, in very good condition. Neither the Southern Cross and Lusitania Herald nor its associated concert programme is recorded. The copies we offer here, as well as being extremely rare examples of nineteenth century shipboard printing in general, are possibly unique, and, in much the same way as a passenger's ship board diary, they provide an insight into life on an emigrant ship and the various activities that were organised to relieve the tedium on the long voyage to Australia. The Lusitania was built in 1871 for the Pacific Steam Navigation Company, but in 1877 was transferred to the Orient Line. She first sailed on the Orient Line's new service from London to Melbourne on 28 June 1877. The passage at that time (prior to opening of the Suez Canal in 1881) was around 7 weeks. On her second outward voyage of 1880 the Lusitania sailed from London on September 30 and Plymouth on October 2, arriving at Melbourne on November 15. The Southern Cross and Lusitania Herald includes snippets of news of the outside world received by telegram at St. Vincent (Cape Verde), where the ship called on October 11, and informaton about ship board activities such as music and a spelling bee. About half of the third page is taken up by a fairly crude lampoon of the ship's captain, captioned "Our Chairman". The concert programme lists musical pieces or songs performed by various first and second class passengers, one of whom is a Mr. Coffey (mentioned on the back of the Southern Cross); other names include Mrs. Yeats, Mrs. and Miss Cohn, and Miss Bowman. The type of printing process used on board the Lusitania appears to have been a very early form of stencil or mimeograph such as the Papyograph (patented 1874) or Trypograph (patented 1877).

      John Murray, London 1880 - The important sixth edition (with additions and corrections to 1872), twenty-second thousand, of 1880, which was the last to be fully revised by Darwin and significantly re-written, with a new chapter in refutation of objections to his theory. It was also the first edition to drop the word On from the title and the first to use the word evolution. The 458-page text (checked for completeness) is in very good, tight, clean condition. Just a little very light foxing of the half-title, last leaf of the index and blank free end papers, the front of which has the small 1880 stamp of the owner. Minor cracking of the paper to the front inner hinge, which is very secure. Minor light marks to end papers. One folding plate. The original green cloth binding, with gilt title and decoration on the spine, is in very good, tight condition, with only slight edge wear. Altogether a very good copy of a scarce book. See photographs attached. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

He later moved the foundry to Woodstock, was a busy businessman, and active in community affairs. In 1874, the town offered Mr. Whitelaw $8,000 to assist his planned expansion of the company; if the business remained in Woodstock for eight more years, the loan would be canceled. In addition to agricultural machinery such as steam engines and threshers, his factory made sawing machines, cheese making machines, castings and fire hydrants. Some time after the expansion, the Company became known as Whitelaw's Oxford Foundry and Engine Works.

        HISTORY OF DON QUIXOTE The Text Edited by J W Clark and A Biographical Notice of Cervantes, by T Teignmouth Shore

      London: Cassell, Petter, and Galpin, [c. 1880]. A very early issue of this wonderfully illustrated Cervantes. With 118 spectacular illustrations by by Gustave Doré. Royal 4to. (32 x 25 cm), half green morocco by Maclehose of Glasgow, green cloth boards, upper cover titled in gilt, spine with raised bands, gilt rules and lettering, marbled edges and endpapers. xxviii, 737 pp. A very handsome and sturdy copy, as fine and fresh and bright, the binding is very strong and well preserved, beautiful and of fine craftsmanship. AN UNUSUALLY HANDSOME COPY. VERY SCARCE IN SUCH WELL PRESERVED CONDITION. Gustave Doré was one of the greatest illustrators of his day. He was born in Strassburg in 1832. In 1848, he moved to Paris where "his facility as a draughtsman was extraordinary." He was a prolific worker and his subjects were usually religious or historical. He died in January of 1883. His grand and magnificent style is a perfect complement for Cervantes heroic tale. This great tome presents one of our favorite printings of the Spanish classic and, because of the weight of the text block, is usually found broken and loose. This copy is as sturdy as one could hope for and is especially handsome as well.

Piatti illustrati in cromolitografia con decorazioni in oro e argento, splendida copertina di Alfredo Edel (1856-1912). Numero di plancia manoscritto a matita blu al piatto. Esemplare leggermente rifilato al margine superiore, lievi usure in corrispondenza del dorso. Pagine parzialmente slegate con qualche traccia di umidità ai margini, peraltro carte perfettamente conservate. Ottimo esemplare. Rara prima edizione con timbro a secco "aprile 1880" [Hopkinson 5A, p. 19 - Gaspari II, p. 509]. La prima esecuzione fu il 18 aprile 1880 al Teatro alla Scala di Milano sotto la direzione di Franco Faccio. Come per il Pater noster, il testo dell’Ave Maria non è una diretta citazione dantesca, bensì una parafrasi del testo latino della preghiera. Tali parafrasi, attribuite a Dante, risalgono in realtà alla fine del XIV secolo e sono state successivamente attribuite ad Antonio de’ Beccari da Ferrara [cfr. Aspects of Verdi, G. Martin, 1988, p. 286]. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Lettre autographe signée à la Comtesse Potocka : « Maupassant prêtre libre »

      Signed autograph letter of Guy de Maupassant to Countess Potocka, 26 lines in black ink on a sheet of laid paper headed "GM 83 Dulong Street".Maupassant evokes the episode that marks his entry into familiarity with the countess: the famous story of dolls. Following a lost bet, the Countess Potocka sent Maupassant rag dolls representing the ladies invited to a future dinner. By play, Maupassant took six of them and stuffed them with the belly of cloth before autograph dedication of the author them back to the countess. In a word that accompanied the mail, Maupassant boasted of having them all engrossed in one night.To get out of an evening that he would prefer to spend with the countess he had to "[...] make diplomacy, employ the ruses and machinations of the most skilful. In spite of everything, he will only be able to: "[...] save around eleven o'clock or eleven thirty. In order to know the guests who will be at the party, he asks Potocka: " I'll have to give six dolls back to me ". A little joke that reflects their level of intimacy.He regrets to have committed for this evening which prevents him from going to the countess's house: " Do you see where I am? The evening for which I had engaged should not begin to be pleasant until midnight, all guests left. At last, he proposes to: "[...] scream, like the brother-in-law of your friend:" To me camphor and water lily "! Both substances were used as anaphrodisiac or to calm nervousness.Despite his lack of desire, he will have to go to this dinner but he plans to offer: "[...] to God, and to you, this sacrifice which will seem delicious to me. I will come with feelings of contrition and sacred exaltation. To conclude the most humorous of Maupassant's letters to Countess Potocka, the author signs: " Maupassant free priest ." Paris s.d.

Gilt titles and tooling to the spine, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, marbled endpapers, marbled edges, illustrated. In near fine condition. A very nice set. The Brontes were a nineteenth-century literary family associated with the village of Thornton in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. The sisters, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne are well known as poets and novelists. Like many contemporary female writers, they originally published their poems and novels under male pseudonyms: Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. Their stories immediately attracted attention, although not always the best, for their passion and originality. Charlotte's Jane Eyre was the first to know success, while Emily's Wuthering Heights, Anne's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and other works were later to be accepted as masterpieces of literature.

        El Origen de las Especies

      Lucuix, Madrid 1880 - Ultrarareza bibliográfica. 559 págs., 15 x 23 cm. Por primera vez se ofrece una de las ediciones más raras (y desconocemos la razón) al publico español de toda la bibliografía de Darwin en España. El presente ejemplar corresponde a la segunda edición corregida y aumentada de la traducción que realizó Enrique Godinez. para la editorial Biblioteca-Perojo en 1877. Aquella edición (y ésta) se acompañaba de dos breves cartas de Darwin agradeciendo la labor de traducción y se trata de la primera y segunda en lengua española de las realizadas del Origen de las Especies (Hay traducción de obras de Darwin anteriores, pero no corresponden al Origen de las Especies en su forma completa) esta presente edición está corregida y aumentada evitando las numerosas erratas de la primera. También cambia la persona del narrador de singular a plural mayestático: ¿ ¿ Todas las ediciones, ésta y la anterior del traductor Godínez, toman la considerada canonica inglesa, la sexta edición, que corrigió Darwin y dió a las prensas como definitiva. La particularidad de esta edición es que inexplicablemente no se encuentra en el Catálogo de la Biblioteca Nacional Española, hemos realizado una búsqueda en el Worldcat y el resultado ha sido nulo, no hay registros que correspondan a esta edición ni siquiera en la Library of Congress de los Estados Unidos. Solo en el CRAI científico de la Universidad de Barcelona hemos localizado un ejemplar y también algunas noticias en Internet y como es lógico en la Bibliografía que realizó Jaume Josa, director de publicaciones del CSIC en España y Alberto Gomis. Llegados a este punto debemos ir precisamente a la Bibliografía de las Obras de Darwin en España (segunda edición ampliada) de Josa y Gomis.; en la página 130 advierten los autores de esta segunda edición de Godinez, afirman que el grabado que aparece en esta edición es el primer retrato de Darwin en España. ¿Entre las correcciones que se introducen, en esta segunda edición de Godínez, destaca que, en la narración, todo el texto se presenta de forma impersonal, cuando en la anterior (la de 1877), era de forma personal (daremos por dare; viajábamos por viajaba, vemos por veo; etc.), El índice, en lugar de ir al final de la obra, va al principio. * En el capítulo de adiciones hay que destacar que incorpora un retrato de Darwin que no figuraba en la primera edición. Al final de la página VII, en la que se señalan las ¿Enmiendas de la última edición inglesa¿ se apunta:¿ hoy tenemos gran satisfacción al presentar al publico la segunda edición castellana, habiéndose agotado, desde los primeros meses de su aparición, la numerosa tirada de los ejemplares de la primera¿. Extraño que esa primera edición sea tan amplia como dice el autor y que se localicen tan pocos ejemplares de la primera tirada (y aún menos ejemplares de ésta segunda edición). La hipótesis que planteamos es que fueran destruidos la mayoría de fondo editorial por ser Darwin y su teoría en general, contraria a la moral y fe católica. Éste ejemplar que presenta la encuadernación rústica original en lomo y en la rara cubierta, disipa toda duda: En el lomo podemos ver 1880. El estado de conservación es todo lo bueno que cabe para un libro del XIX que se caracterizan porque han sobrevivido tan pocas cubiertas (eliminadas por la práctica de la encuadernación¿la BNE y sus fondos es un claro testimonio de dicha nefasta practica). Hemos observado faltantes en el lomo y una resturaciones profesionales en el margen del ultimo pliego (ver fotos) que no afectan apenas al texto, (corresponde al Glosario final). También una restauración en la cubierta, en el margen inferior hecha con el mismo tipo de papel. El ejemplar está muy limpio en interior, sin manchas ni roturas, conservando retrato y plano desplegable y la cubierta original. Se entrega con funda de acetato de conservación.
