         Koch, Robert: Ueber die Aetiologie der Tuberculose (pp.56-79). - Enthält die erste Mitteilung über Paul Ehrlichs Färbemethode.

      - Verh. Kongr. Inn. Med., 1. - Wiesbaden, 20.-22. April 1882. - Wiesbaden, Verlag von J.F. Bergmann, 1882, 8°, 215 pp., orig. Broschur; unbeschnittenes Exemplar. Erstdruck! "Es schien anfangs so, als ob die Färbung in ausreichender Weise nur durch diese Methylenblau Lösung zu erzielen sei. Aber wie es so oft in der Wissenschaft geht, dass eine Entdeckung neue hervorruft, so auch hier. Dr. Ehrlich hat, indem er nach dem selben Prinzip verfuhr, aber in anderen Weise die Anilinlösung in alkalischen Zustand versetzte, ausgezeichnete Färberesultate bekommen. Die Tuberkelbacterien lassen sich nach seinem Verfahren nicht blos mit Methylenblau, sondern auch mit anderen Anilinfarben, z.,B. Fuchsin ." Robert Koch (20. April 1882 (!)) Robert Koch hatte am 24. März 1882 seine Entdeckung des Tuberkelbazillus in einer Sitzung der Berliner Physiologischen Gesellschaft bekannt gegeben; Ehrlich hat darüber in einem Nachruf auf Koch in der Frankfurter Zeitung 1910, Nr. 150 geschrieben: "Es war in einem kleinen Raum des Physiologischen Instituts, als Koch in schlichten und klaren Worten unter Vorlegung zahlloser Präparate und Beweisstücke die Ätiologie der Tuberkulose mit überzeugender Kraft darlegte. Jeder, der diesem Vortrage beigewohnt hatte, war ergriffen, und ich muß sagen, daß mir jener Abend stets als mein größtes wissenschaftliches Erlebnis in Erinnerung geblieben ist." Schon am nächsten Tage konnte Ehrlich seine neue Färbemethode dem Entdecker des Tuberkelbazillus, Robert Koch, demonstrieren. Seine färberischen Studien über das Amyloid hatten ihm einige Jahre vorher gezeigt, daß ein käufliches, augenscheinlich verunreinigtes Methylviolett besser färbe, als reinere Produkte. Er suchte deshalb die färberisch "wichtige Verunreinigung und kam auf das Anilin. In der Tat vermochte er ein reines Methylviolett durch Hinzufügen von Anilin färberisch wirksamer zu machen. Auch hatte Ehrlich bei diesen Anilinfärbeversuchen an tuberkulösen Organen stäbchenartige, gefärbte Gebilde gesehen, an die er sich bei dem Koch sehen Vortrage wieder erinnerte, und auf Grund des Kochschen Vortrages versuchte er sofort Tuberkelbazillen nach diesem Färbeprinzip zu färben und schuf damit die Grundlage für alle späteren Tuberkelbazillenfärbungen. In der Sitzung des Berliner Vereins für innere Medizin vom 1. Mai gab er die Methode genau bekannt: "Ich verfahre derart, daß ich mittels Präpariernadeln aus dem Sputum ein Partikelchen herausnehme und zwischen zwei Deckgläsern platt presse. Es ist zweckmäßig, Deckgläser von bestimmter Dicke zu nehmen, und habe ich gefunden, daß solche von 0,10 bis 0,12 mm am empfehlenswertesten sind. Es gelingt unter diesen Bedingungen leicht, aus dem kleinen Pfropf des Sputums gleichmäßige dünne Lagen zu erhalten. Man zieht dann beide Gläser auseinander und bekommt zwei dünne Schichten, die leicht lufttrocken werden. Diese Präparate sind noch nicht recht geeignet. Es ist zweckmäßig, das Eiweiß zu fixieren. Ich selbst habe gewöhnlich dies dadurch bewirkt, daß das Präparat durch eine Stunde auf 100 bis no° erhalten wird, jedoch gibt es für die Praxis ein zweckmäßigeres Verfahren, dessen Anwendung ich im Kaiserlichen Gesundheitsamte gesehen habe und das darin besteht, daß man das lufttrockene Präparat mittels einer Pinzette dreimal durch die Flamme eines Bunsenschen Gasbrenners zieht. Für die Färbung verwende ich ein mit Anilinöl gesättigtes Wasser, das sich durch Schütteln von Wasser mit überschüssigem Anilinöl und Filtrieren durch ein angefeuchtetes Filter binnen wenigen Minuten herstellen läßt. Der so gewonnenen wasserklaren Flüssigkeit fügt man tropfenweise von einer gesättigten alkoholischen Fuchsin- oder Methylviolettlösung so lange hinzu, bis eine deutliche Opaleszenz der Flüssigkeit eintritt, die die Sättigung mit Farbstoff anzeigt. Auf dieser Flüssigkeit läßt man die Präparate schwimmen und sieht sie binnen % bis % Stunde intensiv in dem betreffenden Farbton sich anfärben. Die isolierte Tinktion der . [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         A Poet's Harvest Home

      Eliot Stock, London 1882 - pp (xi) 155. 12mo (6 1/2" x 4 1/4"). A rare Presentation Copy from the author, William Bell Scott to his friend, Professor John Nichol, "with affectionate remembs. November 1882". Featuring original engraved artwork within oval frames by the author on front board, title page, as well as two additional within. In cream-colored binding with title, author and illustration in red ink on front board; spine plain, with red title and author and paper sticker in old ink. Engraved Bookplate inside front cover: University of Aberdeen, English Class Library (in old ink). Also rubber stamped in red: "withdrawn from Aberdeen University Library." Condition: overall Very Good, with heavy dust-soiling to spine and less so to covers. T.e.g.,otherwise the laid paper pages are untrimmed and charmingly offset. Ungilt edges are age somewhat age-toned, elsewise, interior pages are clean and tight. One small tear to page 5. One small edit in ink, p. 153 (could be by author's hand). Numerous engraved initial caps and dingbats contained within. Dedicated to W.M. Rossetti; this volume was published only a day before the demise of D.G. Rossetti, William's bother and Scott's dear friend. Signed presentation copies were despatched to many of his friends of the Pre-Raphaelite circle: C. Rossetti, Swinburne, Holman Hunt, as well as William Morris. Scott’s Autobiographical Notes (1892) records the touching notes and verses sent him in thanks by Christina Rossetti and Swinburne; Morris congratulates him on a well-produced book. These missives recognize the mutual loss felt by the group of artists. Scott could not attend Rossetti's funeral , being ill. This volume was, in fact, Scott’s valedictory work of poetry, written when he was seventy years old and entering a period of decline due to angina pectoris which severely limited his travel. He would die in November of 1890. Scott records in the Notes that he wrote A Harvest Home "without premeditation and with quite a novel feeling of spontaneity. every line to be employed in its development, came to me as if from memory, they were written down in pencil on pieces of paper I had placed under my pillow the night before." (Vol.2,pp. 303-304.) *** The recipient of this copy, PROFESSOR JOHN NICHOL, (1833-1894) was the first Regius Professor of English Language and Literature at the University of Glasgow. The son of an academic, Nichol was an accomplished biographer, essayist, literary critic, lecturer and sometime poet. Warm correspondence spanning the 1880's exists between Nichol and Bell (See Memoir of John Nichol, J. Maclehose, Glasgow, 1896) wherein Bell comments on Nichols's The Death of Theistodes and Other Poems which Bell declares "rouse (him) like the sound of a trumpet." The two visited each other in Ayrshire, and Nichol attended Bell's funeral in 1890. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         Autograph Manuscript, signed ("Rose Hartwick Thorpe"), two stanzas from "Curfew Shall Not Ring Tonight"

      Grand Rapids, Mich, 1882. 24 lines, fair copy, in ink, on single folded sheet. 1 vols. 8vo. Accompanied by a 2 pp. ALS from Thorpe, conveying the ms in response to the recipient's request. Both in fine condition. 24 lines, fair copy, in ink, on single folded sheet. 1 vols. 8vo. "Curfew Shall Not Ring Tonight". Two stanzas from the immensely popular popular song, in its day, about a young girl during the Protectorate who saves the life of her Cavalier lover from a sentence of death" She has reached the topmost ladder, o'er her hangs the great dark bell; Awful is the gloom beneath her, like the pathway down to hell. See! the ponderous tongue is swinging; 'tis the hour of curfew now, And the sight has chilled her bosom, stopped her breath, and paled her brow. Shall she let it ring? No, never! Her eyes flash with sudden light, As she springs, and grasps it firmly: "Curfew shall not ring to-night!" Out she swung,-- far out. The city Seemed a speck of light below,-- There twixt heaven and earth suspended, As the bell swung to and fro. And the sexton at the bell-rope, old and deaf, heard not the bell, Sadly thought that twilight curfew rang young Basil's funeral knell. "Still the maiden, clinging firmly, quivering lip and fair face white, Stilled her frightened heart's wild throbbing: "Curfew shall not ring tonight!"

Plein cuir brun à l'imitation du serpent, grande arabesque dorée sur les plats, dos à nerfs avec l?inscription «dessins de O?Bry», tête dorée (René Kieffer). Recueil de 121 dessins originaux à l?encre de Chine et à la plume, d'une grande finesse, de l?illustrateur et caricaturiste O?Bry, qui collabora notamment avec Robida. De tous formats (certains sont à pleine page, d?autres sont des vignettes), ils portent tous la signature de l?artiste au recto, et au verso des instructions pour la gravure (notamment pour les réductions de format) ; ils sont contrecollés sur des feuilles de papier fort, ajourées afin que le verso de chaque dessin soit visible, et montées sur onglets.Ils semblent avoir été faits pour illustrer Le 13e cuirassiers de Théo-Critt, paru en 1882 chez Ollendorff .O?bry a illustré plusieurs ouvrages de Théo-Critt, pseudonyme de Théodore Cahu, dont Nos farces à Saumur et Le 13e cuirassiers, et les a même relevés de son crayon si l?on en croit cette critique lue dans la revue Le Livre d?Octave Uzanne, qui affirme que même si le texte est assez insipide, l?on parcourt l?ouvrage avec plaisir «grâce aux dessins variés dont O?Bry a égayé le texte. Minois fripons, jupes fripées, croquis et binettes de cuirassiers à pied ou à cheval, galants rendez-vous qui se terminent d?une façon grotesque, il y a de tout un peu, et la bonne humeur y rit sans malice d?un bout à l?autre. Décidément le crayon, cette fois, a été mieux taillé que la plume.»Charmant recueil de dessins originaux, joliment relié par Kieffer.

Signed author's edition, with an autograph postcard signed. "Author's edition," signed by Whitman on the title-page, this copy with a postcard signed by Whitman loosely inserted. A beautiful copy of this edition of Leaves of Grass, bearing several marks of Whitman's direct involvement in the book's production and distribution. Whitman issued this edition himself after the book had been labeled obscene by the district attorney, and Boston publisher Osgood - who had already sold through three printings from 1881-82 - backed off. Osgood delivered the plates and roughly 225 copies in sheets to Whitman, who had new title-pages printed, which he signed.

Inserted in this copy is a receipt for one such order in the form of an AUTOGRAPH POSTCARD SIGNED from Whitman to Frederick L. Manning, Counselor at Law, in Waterloo, New York. Dated March 16, 1886 from 328 Mickle Street, it reads: "I have just sent the book ? As soon as it reaches you safely, will you kindly forward me a postal card, notifying me? Walt Whitman." The postcard bears Manning's reply, "yours rec'd," in the lower left corner, with a return postmark from Waterloo at upper right. In his daybook entry for March 16, Whitman recorded having sent a copy of the author's edition to Manning.This edition includes two engraved portraits of Whitman - the famous Hollyer portrait which served as the frontispiece for the first edition of 1855, as well as the Linton portrait after the photograph by G.C. Potter. Myerson A2.7.c3 Original green cloth, edges beveled, spine stamped in gold, t.e.g., yellow endpapers.

Bell was strongly critical of the East India Company, and its impact on peasant proprietorship in India. After the Indian Rebellion of 1857, Bell lost his position in Nagpur, for complaining over the head of his immediate superior about the treatment of the Ranis of the Nagpur kingdom.

         Essai sur L'histoire Naturelle des Vertebres de la Province et des Departements Circonvoisins: Vertebres Anallantantoidiens (Poissons et Batraciens)

      Marseillie: Marius Lebon, 1882. First edition.. The spine is sunned which has caused the leather to turn into golden tan, the title is fully readable on the spine, the text is clean and unused with some pages uncut and unopened; a tight and clean copy in very good condition.. Pp. (7), 8-425 (3, index); 44 text-figures (line-drawings and halftones of fishes and frogs). Publisher's original reddish cloth over marbled boards, the spine is lettered in gilt and with blind-stamped panel lines, original marbled endpapers, sm 4to (10 x 6.5 inches; 255 x 170 mm). This work provides a natural history of the fishes and amphibians inhabiting the southern provinces of France. Jean Marius Francois Reguis (1850-1908) studied pharmacy at the School of Medicine in Marseille where he studied under Charles Lespes, Antoine-Fortune Marion, Alphonse Derbs, and Edouard Marie Heckel. After finishing his education, he moved to Meyrargues in southwest France to begin his studies on the batrachians, reptiles, birds, mammals, anthropology, invertebrates, botany, and geology of the area. He later joined the Faculty of Sciences at Marseille when he began writing a 16 volume encyclopedia on the natural history of southern France. Between 1876 and 1904 he published numerous monographs and journal articles on these topics, but they were never formally organized into his encyclopedia. This book appears to be one of the volumes in Regius' proposed encyclopedia. This volume has long tables of the species Regius described in the volume. Due to the extreme scarcity of the work, this volume was likely published in an edition of 500 copies or less. All of his published works are very hard to find. Regius died in 1908 after a lifetime of studying zoology, mycology, and botany of southern France. This volume is warmly inscribed by the author to F. Letarte of Paris, dated July 30, 1882. Later from the library of ichthyologist J. Bohlke with his small name stamp at the bottom of the title page and the dedication page. A rare regional work that seldom comes up for sale.

         A complete set (21 volumes) of the Annual Reports of the U.S. Geological Survey, 1882-1895, published when Powell served as Director of the Survey. [First editions].

      the Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 1882 - Washington, thick quartos, variously paged. ***CONTENT: Major John Wesley Powell, who lost his right arm at the battle of Shiloh, achieved wide notoriety for his explorations of the American West, especially his two daring voyages down the untamed Colorado River in 1869 and 1871-1872. Gifted with imagination, disciplined, and largely educated by his field experiences, Powell developed a solid background in geology and ethnology, and became a champion of conservation and the wise use of natural resources. He encouraged the Survey's scientists to produce reports focusing on all aspects of geology: mineralogy, petrology, hydrology and irrigation, topography and geomorphology, structural geology, earthquakes, volcanism, paleontology, glacial studies, areal geology, geologic history, etc. Studies of metallic and non-metallic mineral resources received particular attention. These volumes each contain from 1-8 reports that vary in length from a few pages to more than 300 pages. Reports of special significance in this set include geological studies of the Grand Canyon (Dutton), the Comstock Lode, Nevada (Becker), Lake Superior copper and iron (Irving), Hawaiian volcanoes (Dutton), rocks of the Sierra Nevada (Turner), arid region hydrography (Powell, Newell), Appalachian structure (Willis), North American glaciers (Russell), fossil mammals and birds (Marsh), Iowa Pleistocene (McGee), Cambrian trilobites and faunas (Walcott), the Charleston (SC) earthquake (Dutton), artesian wells (Chamberlin), paleobotany and Laramie flora (Ward), mid-continent petroleum and natural gas (Orton, Phinney), and more. Mining districts receiving attention include: Comstock, Washoe, Leadville (Colorado), Eureka, California quicksilver, Penokee and Marquette iron, Ophir gold and silver, plus coal, oil and gas districts, etc. Areal geology studies of specific regions include: the San Francisco Peninsula, southern Oregon, eastern seacoast swamps and shorelines, Yellowstone, Martha's Vineyard and Cape Ann (Massachusetts), Chesapeake Bay, Mount Desert (Maine), the Rocky Mountains and Appalachians, the Taconic Range and Green Mts. (New York and Vermont), Maryland granites, and more. These reports are splendidly illustrated by 1218 full-page plates, photos and maps (yes, I counted them), many folding and in color, as well as a plethora of text figures and small maps. Two volumes contain colored geologic maps of the U.S. that command significant prices at auction. [Annual Report no. I, by Clarence King, will be offered in a separate listing]. ***CONDITION: All volumes are fully complete; they are in VG to Fine condition and uniformly bound in the original "Geological Survey" cloth bindings with a gilt vignette on the front covers and original gilt-lettered spines with crossed pick and hammer decoration. The covers are very clean and sound with only light wear to the extremities. Joints and hinges typically solid, bindings firm. The text pages and illustrations are near pristine: fresh, clean and bright. Some volumes show mild evidence of previous ownership on the endpapers. It has taken many years to assemble this handsome set - these volumes are very difficult to obtain in such nice condition. Nickles 841-842. BMNH 2176. International and domestic shipping will be extra, but only at my cost. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Bevis. The Story of a Boy. Complete in three volumes.

      Sampson, Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, London(1882). First edition - complete in three volumes. Miller & Matthews' primary printing and binding. 8vo. 287pp, 294pp and 294pp. Green cloth, lettered in gold at spines with a black- and gold-stamped decoration to the upper boards. Decorated endpapers. The bindings of all three volumes shaken and quite tender, cracked at a number of gatherings but holding. Spine heads rubbed and with just a touch of light chafing to corner tips. Endpapers a little browned, with a touch of light spotting to edges, and preliminary and concluding leaves. Former owner name and date (1938) neatly inked to a blank flyleaf in each volume. Really quite a bright if tender set of Jefferies' boyhood classic, the sequel to 'Wood Magic' (1881): really quite uncommon in this primary green binding (there is some considerable debate over the priority between the green and brown bindings, and here I bow to George Miller's proven scholarship in deducing the green set over the brown see Miller & Matthews B15.1). Produced in a likely print run of between 750 and 1,000 copies. Only the second such set we have had in over a decade.. Book Condition: Good. Binding: Hardcover

         Two manuscript and printed Chinese military albums, with integral notes, and translations of the text, and French titling: "Clef des Manoeuvres Anciennes des Chinois", and "Dessin des Manoeuvres a l'Europeenne", prepared by Frandon for the French Ministère des Affaires Etrangères

      [China 1882 - (22 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches). First volume: 18 double-page coloured images with woodcut, hand-coloured, colour-printed, letterpress and manuscript elements, depicting military battle formation plans (exercises 1-9 and 9 general formations), mounted to form a concertina fold-out, the mounts with blue/green silked edges; Second volume: double page manuscript introduction by Frandon bound in at the end, 24 double-page coloured images with woodcut, hand-coloured, colour-printed, letterpress and manuscript elements depicting military formation plans (exercises 1-24), mounted to form a concertina fold-out, the mounts with blue/green silked edges. Uniform binding of typical form: bevelled wooden boards, the upper cover of each work with the titles in Chinese characters cut out of black velvet mounted on gilt and red paper backing, with a manuscript title in French in black ink on red paper framed with card, each volume within a modern red cloth chemise, all contained within a single red morocco-backed cloth, spine gilt Provenance: Ernest Louis François Paul Frandon (1842-1904, signatures, text, etc.) A unique pair of manuscript Chinese military albums: a relic of the Sino-French War of 1883-1885. Ernest Frandon enjoyed a long and distinguished diplomatic career most of which was spent in a part of the world of great interest to France. Frandon describes this career in some detail in the manuscript 'Etat de Services' which he submitted when he was being considered for a Legion d'Honneur award in 1891. After working briefly in Spain, Frandon moved to Yokohama in November 1880. In November 1882 he received his first posting to China in Shanghai. His work on the present albums date to the period from April 1883 when he was appointed 'gerant' or manager at the French Vice Consulat at Foutcheou (Fuzhow) in Fujian province. From July 1884 until the beginning of March 1885 he served in Calcutta, before being appointed Vice Consul in Kobe, Japan. He remained there for less than a year before returning to Fuzhow as French Vice Consul at the end of June 1885 where he appears to have remained for the rest of his active career (he retired in 1900). The early period of Frandon's first tour in Fuzhow seems to have been particularly eventful: he was able to provide important information about the harbour at Fuzhow, the Chinese fleet and the new naval yard (built under the supervision of Frenchmen). This all proved to be very useful to Admiral Amedee Courbet during the battle of Fuzhow when the vessels of the French Far East Squadron virtually destroyed the Fujian Fleet, one of China's four regional fleets. Specifically, in his 'Etat de Services' he notes that he sent a report on the defences of Fuzhow and that he found for Courbet the pilots necessary for the fleet to gain entry to the harbour. It appears that the gathering of military and naval intelligence was a significant part of Frandon's duties, and the present albums fall squarely into that category. In fact, according to his 'Etat de Services', Frandon clearly made maximum use of his command of languages during his diplomatic career and submitted a great many well-received reports on numerous aspects of his host nations' life and character. These appear to have varied widely in form, from straight-forward written reports, to the present albums which appear to be specifically referred to by Frandon, as reports on "les excercises militaries Chinois" and "les Forces militaries du Celeste Empire et l'effectif Europeen necessaire pour les vaincre." Frandon is also responsible for specially-commissioned albums of photographs of Chinese manufactured goods (these were exhibited recently to wide acclaim), to actual samples of 'native' goods and manufactures, to 'native' plants, all of which he collected and sent them back to France. Taking a pair of traditional military text-books as his starting point, Frandon here explains (in red ink) and interprets (in black ink) the text and diagrams. As he states in [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         A Poet's Harvest Home

      London: Eliot Stock, 1882. pp (xi) 155. 12mo (6 1/2" x 4 1/4"). A rare Presentation Copy from the author, William Bell Scott to his friend, Professor John Nichol, "with affectionate remembs... November 1882". Featuring original engraved artwork within oval frames by the author on front board, title page, as well as two additional within. In cream-colored binding with title, author and illustration in red ink on front board; spine plain, with red title and author and paper sticker in old ink. Engraved Bookplate inside front cover: University of Aberdeen, English Class Library (in old ink). Also rubber stamped in red: "withdrawn from Aberdeen University Library." Condition: overall Very Good, with heavy dust-soiling to spine and less so to covers. T.e.g.,otherwise the laid paper pages are untrimmed and charmingly offset. Ungilt edges are age somewhat age-toned, elsewise, interior pages are clean and tight. One small tear to page 5. One small edit in ink, p. 153 (could be by author's hand). Numerous engraved initial caps and dingbats contained within. Dedicated to W.M. Rossetti; this volume was published only a day before the demise of D.G. Rossetti, William's bother and Scott's dear friend. Signed presentation copies were despatched to many of his friends of the Pre-Raphaelite circle: C. Rossetti, Swinburne, Holman Hunt, as well as William Morris. Scott’s Autobiographical Notes (1892) records the touching notes and verses sent him in thanks by Christina Rossetti and Swinburne; Morris congratulates him on a well-produced book. These missives recognize the mutual loss felt by the group of artists. Scott could not attend Rossetti's funeral , being ill. This volume was, in fact, Scott’s valedictory work of poetry, written when he was seventy years old and entering a period of decline due to angina pectoris which severely limited his travel. He would die in November of 1890. Scott records in the Notes that he wrote A Harvest Home "without premeditation and with quite a novel feeling of spontaneity... every line to be employed in its development, came to me as if from memory, they were written down in pencil on pieces of paper I had placed under my pillow the night before." (Vol.2,pp. 303-304.) *** The recipient of this copy, PROFESSOR JOHN NICHOL, (1833-1894) was the first Regius Professor of English Language and Literature at the University of Glasgow. The son of an academic, Nichol was an accomplished biographer, essayist, literary critic, lecturer and sometime poet. Warm correspondence spanning the 1880's exists between Nichol and Bell (See Memoir of John Nichol, J. Maclehose, Glasgow, 1896) wherein Bell comments on Nichols's The Death of Theistodes and Other Poems which Bell declares "rouse (him) like the sound of a trumpet." The two visited each other in Ayrshire, and Nichol attended Bell's funeral in 1890. . Signed by author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good-.

         Large collection of 85 books and magazines by and about Jean Lorrain.

      58 early books (from 1882 to 1957) and 20 more recent ones, including 4 translations (into Dutch and English). Plus 2 old books that mention Lorrain sidedishwise, and 5 fin de siècle magazines. Please ask for a complete description.l Jean Lorrain (1855-1906), a symbolist writer turned decadentistic, presenting himself as a 'dandy of the mire', catering gothic novelettes, but also chronicles of contemporary life, full of slurs and slander to the sensation-hungry reader. A great stylist, a master of masks who tampered with drugs, dying as a syphilitic and drug addict. His doting mother lived on for another 20 years, providing material to his Eckermann, the author Georges Normandy who was able to enhance Lorrains reputation as an author in the 20s and 30s. Never quite forgotten, there was a Lorrain revival in the carefree Sixties and the studious Eighties, fostering many publications also included in this collection. This is an arsenal of 44 different early titles with 14 reprints and differring duplicates, comprising 5 books with a lengthy dedication by Jean Lorrain, 3 with inserted letters by him and 2 with autograph poems his first three titles, nice original illustrated wrappers and some fantastically illustrated books. Added: two dozen books and other publications about Lorrain. This collection, measuring more than two shelves, is a grandiose addition for any Lorrain specialist or library.

Original diagonal-ribbed dark yellow cloth over bevelled boards, spines and front boards lettered and decorated in gilt and black, rear boards ruled in blind, brown floral endpapers, binder's ticket (Jackson's Works, Aberdeen) to rear pastedowns. Housed in a custom blue cloth slipcase. Wood-engraved frontispiece, 8 similar plates, illustrations to the text. Spines a touch sunned and bumped, tips lightly rubbed, small section of darkening to cloth at upper outer corner of vol. 1 front board, a small portion of cockling below, faint scuffing and a light score-mark to vol. 2 rear board, a few other trivial marks, these flaws minor: an excellent, fresh copy. First edition of this important account of Malawi, from the celebrated travel collection of Franklin Brooke-Hitching, with his pencilled initials to the half-titles. Macdonald (1850-1929) arrived in the Shire Highlands in July 1878 as the first ordained minister of the newly-established Church of Scotland mission at Blantyre. During his tenure the mission assumed control of what Macdonald himself referred to as "civil jurisdiction", and became implicated in numerous abuses, including routine corporal punishment of any locals suspected of stealing mission property, leading to death in one instance and the flogging of an entirely innocent individual in another, and the large-scale expropriation of land "partly to forestall Portuguese claims to the sovereignty of the Shire Highlands" (Morris, An Environmental History of Southern Malawi, p. 53). Macdonald and others were recalled by the Foreign Mission Committee in 1881, and he spent the rest of his life as a parish minister. Despite the circumstances of his tenure, considered disreputable even by the standards of the day, his account is considered a "pioneer ethnographic study of the Yao" (ibid.) in a remarkably sympathetic vein.
