        Our Phil and Other Stories [RARE Dust Jacket]

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin and Company, 1889. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. Fine/fine. A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, of this collection of African-American stories by a female author, with illustrations by E. W. Kemble [who also illustrated Twains Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Harriet Beecher Stowes Uncle Toms Cabin, and other books]. The book is in Fine condition with a bit of wear to the spine ends, and comes in an excellent example of the RARE DUST JACKET with surprisingly minor wear the only copy in the dust jacket that we ever have seen. The viewer will notice, of course, that the dust jacket is plain as it is from the period when jackets were used not to sell the book but only to keep the book clean until put out for sale. Virtually all of the dust jackets for the book would have been discarded. The viewer also will see that the jackets spine panel was long ago clipped to reveal the books title a common warehouse practice which would have made locating the book on the warehouse shelves easier than would otherwise have been the case. At the time this book was issued, dust jackets were not used to help sell the book and thus lacked the decoration one sees on later-published books. Such jackets also often did not show one or all of the title, the author, or the publisher all three being absent from this dust jacket, as the dust jackets sole purpose was to keep the book clean until it was put out for sale. Thus, this book is RARE in the dust jacket and is a part of book publishing history, making it an important copy as well. QUITE SCARCE TO RARE.

        Victorian America

      , 1889-1890. 1889-1890. Archive of 36 handwritten letters, 33 of them from the son of Daniel N. Speer, Will Speer, who was an assistant to his father at the Exposition Cotton Mills. Will Speer was courting Katie Silvey in November and December 1889 when she traveled to New York with her mother to select her wedding trousseau. Three of the letters were written to the fiancée by Daniel N. Speer. During the couple's separation, Will Speer wrote a succession of letters providing insight into the rituals of Victorian courtship. Thinking of Katie’s departure, Will wrote: "the agony of that parting, it did seem that my very life would cease to be, when you left me. Don’t you remember Darling our last embrace, how sweet it was to press you to my heart, but how bitter... the thought that soon you would leave me alone and desolate. And when I left you the night before my poor heart was bleeding and it seemed that I could not leave you, no, not for an hour or a moment, never can I forget our walk and our wait at the depot -- how I wished that they would never end..."As the hours rolled into days, he continued in the same vein:"I awoke to the sad reality that mile upon mile divided us...It is early in the morning, my gas jet is burning and in its shadow I am sitting writing to my darling so far away... Darling I am miserable beyond degree." Most letters are written on letterhead of the Exposition Cotton Mills, a business started by Daniel N. Speer with eighteen other investors. Within its first decade, the Exposition Cotton Mills Co. became the South's largest cotton mill. The mill was demolished in 1971.

        Maqamat Abi al-Fadl Badi’ al-Zaman al-Hamadani

      Catholic Press, Beirut 1889 - 247 pp., Arabic text, half-title, previous owner’s signature and date in ink on half title, new modern black binding with gilt title on spine and new end papers, faded light damp stain on last pages, scattered light foxing, some annotations in ink in margins. The Maqamat of al-Hamadani is a collection of 400 episodic stories from the 9th century, roughly 52 of which have survived. They are narrated from the point of view of a fictional character, "very likely a travelling merchant who had money and time". The Maqamat is also known for the stories’ intertextuality and narrative construction. The core of Hamadanian Maqamat is dialogue, and Hamadani, by using techniques such as isnad, stimulated some kind of public presentation. Al-Hamadani’s efforts to preserve the characteristic of oral performance in his Maqamat played a great role in creating their prosimetrical style. The Maqamat has been edited, translated into foreign languages and introduced by many scholars throughout the years. This copy is a rare edition, which was edited by the leading Egyptian scholar Muhammad Abdu (1849-1905) who was considered one of the key founding figures in Islamic modernism.

The Maltings, Great Grimsby, Lincolnshire, were owned by Messrs. Soames & Son, who discovered 'the value to brewers of the use of a proportion of malt made from thin, bright, sun-ripened barleys which are grown in Smyrna, Algeria, and other similar districts....of the greatest benefit to the mash-tub results. By assisting, as they do, the draining of the "goods", the secure the greatest possible extract, and thus form an extremely economical malt'.

In December 1869, Wyoming Territory became the first organized territory in the modern world to codify the right of women to vote and hold office. In 1889, the proposed state of Wyoming enacted a constitution with universal suffrage.

Both male and female citizens of this state shall equally enjoy all civil, political and religious rights and privileges." Wyoming was admitted to the Union on July 10, 1890.

        Lettre autographe signée à la Comtesse Potocka : «vous m'en voudrez un peu pendant longtemps.»

      1889 - - Triel 1889, 9,9x15,2 cm, 3 pages sur un feuillet rempliée. - Lettre autographe signée de Guy de Maupassant à la comtesse Potocka, 38 lignes à l'encre noire sur un feuillet double. Plus sombre que d'ordinaire, Maupassant semble tracassé par un fait qu'il ne mentionne pas mais dont il s'excuse auprès de la comtesse : « Je vous demande encore pardon, ce qui du reste n'atténue pas mon remords ; et je vous assure qu'il est cuisant car j'ai cette arrière-pensée que cous m'en voudrez un peu pendant longtemps. » Maupassant s'était fait une réputation de farceur ainsi que d'homme au langage très libre, sans doute avait-il dépassé une limite en parole ou en action. Quelques années auparavant, il s'était illustré avec la fameuse blague des poupées. La comtesse Potocka avait offert à Maupassant des poupées de chiffon représentant les invitées d'un dîner qu'elle organisait chez elle. Par jeu, il bourra le ventre des dites poupées et les renvoya le lendemain à la comtesse, prétendant ainsi les avoir engrossées dans la nuit. La farce fut connue et provoqua bien des réactions outrées mais la comtesse avait fini par lui assurer son pardon. Quel qu'ait été l'événement malheureux, les courriers semblent s'être croisés : « Votre lettre m'a été renvoyée à Triel car le facteur ne me savait pas à Paris. » Pensant subir de nouveau des remontrances il avoue avoir : « [.] été, en la lisant pénétré de confusion. » Soucieux de plaire à la comtesse, il exprime son inquiétude : « Pourquoi suis-je ainsi nerveux, par moments, comme une femme, sans motifs réels, et sans avoir ressenti, vraiment, aucun froissement. Je n'en sais rien. Je ne peux que le constater. » Qu'ils soient les signes avant-coureurs de la folie où il terminera ses jours, ou les conséquences de ses sentiments pour la comtesse, qu'il s'effraie de fâcher, ces accès de nervosité ne cesseront plus de la vie de l'auteur. Pour s'assurer de la venue de la comtesse à Triel, Maupassant lui demande confirmation : « Je compte sur vous demain n'est-ce pas. » Pour ce faire, il lui conseille le train : « Si vous venez par le chemin de fer, comme vous y paraissez décidée, j'irai vous attendre à Meulan [.] Si vous veniez par le bateau de Georges je vous prie de vouloir bien m'en informer par une dépêche. » Le Georges en question est Georges Legrand, journaliste, « Macchabée » de la comtesse, qu'il fit connaître à Maupassant, et selon le peintre Jacques-Émile Blanche, le seul qui ait eu ses faveurs.

      (Berlin, Uppsala & Stockholm, Paris, 1889. 4to. No wrappers as ectracted from "Acta Mathematica", Band 12, pp. 177-232. Clean and fine. ¶ First edition, the journal issue of this paper which won the Prix Bordin. Sophie Kowalewski was the greatest woman mathematician prior to the twentieth century, and she was also one of the first women to participate in young peoples movement to promote the emancipation of women in Russa. As a woman , she could not be admitted to university lectures, consequently Weierstrass tutored her privately in erlin. "During Kowalewsky years at Stockholm she carried on her most importent research and taught courses (in the spirit of Weierstarss) on the newest and most advanced topics in analysis. She completed research already begun on the subject on the propagation of light in crystalline medium. Her memoir "On the Rotation of a solid Body About a fixed Point (1888)" won the Prix Bordin of the French Academy of Sciences. The judges considered the paper exceptional that they raised the prize from 3,000 to 5,000 francs. He subsequent research on the same subject won the prize from the Swedish Academy of Sciences in 1889. - Complex analysis and nonelementary integrals were also a feature of the Kovalevsky paper which won the Bordin Prize. In her paper she generalized work of Euler, Poisson, and Lagrange, who had considered two elementary cases of the rotation of a rigid body about a fixedpoint...she was able to solve the differential equations of motion by the use of hyperelliptic integrals. her solution was so general that no new case of rotatory motion about a fixed point has been researched to date."(DSB).

        2 Frauen auf einer Terrasse, um 1925

      - GEORG SCHRIMPF, München 1889 - 1938 Berlin, "2 Frauen auf einer Terrasse, um 1925", Holzschnitt, Rechts unten von Hand mit Bleistift signiert , Links unten von Hand mit Bleistift limitiert: Nr. 7/40, Darstellungsgröße: 13,8 x 16,7 cm, Blattgröße: 17,4 x 20 cm, Rahmengröße: 35 x 37 cm, Zustand: Guter Zustand, keine Risse oder Restaurierungen "Nach der Volksschule wollte ich gerne eine Anstalt besuchen, die mich im Zeichnen hätte unterweisen können. Aber mir fehlte der Mut und die Selbständigkeit, um mich durchzusetzen, und so schob man mich zu einem Zuckerbäcker in die Lehre". So schildert Georg Schrimpf in einer Autobiografie seine unglücklich verwirkten künstlerischen Ambitionen in jungen Jahren. Die Lehrzeit in Passau dauert drei Jahre, dann geht der 16-Jährige auf Arbeitssuche. Als Bäcker, Kellner, Kohlenschaufler durchzieht er die nächsten vier Jahre vorwiegend den Norden Deutschlands, wie überhaupt das Reisen und ein ständiger Wohnortwechsel ein wichtiger Bestandteil seiner Vita wird. 1909 geht Schrimpf nach München. Er gerät in eine anarchistische Bewegung, die ihn oft in die Schweiz und nach Italien führt, wo er sich 1913 für längere Zeit an den Lago Maggiore zurückzieht. In dieser Zeit beginnt Schrimpf, Akte von Michelangelo und Raffael zu kopieren. Dann kehrt er nach München zurück und arbeitet dort wieder als Bäcker und Koch. Doch nützt er die freie Zeit für seine eigentliche Berufung: Er zeichnet und aquarelliert. Als Schrimpf 1915 nach Berlin kommt, nimmt er weiterhin diverse Tätigkeiten an, doch beflügelt ihn nun die aktuelle Kunst, die er hier erstmals zu sehen bekommt, zu ersten Ölgemälden. Im selben Jahr noch zeigt die Galerie "Der Sturm" zum ersten Mal die Bilder des Autodidakten. 1920 arrangiert die Galerie Goltz in München - wo Schrimpf inzwischen wieder ansässig ist - die erste Einzelausstellung für den Künstler. Bereits fünf Jahre später ist er in einer Mannheimer Ausstellung zur Neuen Sachlichkeit mit 12 Bildern herausragend vertreten. Nach einer kurzen Lehrtätigkeit am Landeserziehungsheim Haubinda in Thüringen unterrichtet Schrimpf bis 1926 an der Münchner Gewerbeschule. 1933 folgt ein Lehrauftrag an der Staatlichen Hochschule für Kunsterziehung in Berlin, den er bis zu seiner Kündigung im Jahr 1937 ausübt. Ursprünglich der Malerei des Expressionismus zugewandt, kommt Schrimpf in den zwanziger Jahren zur Neuen Sachlichkeit. Dabei bedeutet für ihn die Hinwendung zum Neoklassizismus nicht nur eine Entwicklung in die Idylle biedermeierlicher Landschaften, sondern er kann in diesen ruhigen Kompositionen, die sich durch die Verbindung von Gegenstand und Konstruktion auszeichnen, auch sein Anliegen, ein stilles Leben voller Harmonie fern jeglicher Gegenwartsproblematik, konkretisieren.

Tiffereau était ce que l'on appèle un archimiste au sens ou s'il tente de transmutter l'argent en or c'est d'un point de vue purement scientifique, sans l'aspect ésotérique de l'alchimie. Tiffereau, chimiste de formation affirme avoir réussi la transmutation en 1847. Il réussi à convaincre l'Académie des Sciences d'évaluer son procédé. Las, les deux essais réalisés ne permirent de retrouver qu'une quantité infinitésimale d'or qui d'après l'essayeur en titre de la Monnai de Paris, Levol - en charge de l'évaluation - devait provenir de l'argent qui n'était pas parfaitement pur. ___________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________ENGLISH_DESCRIPTION______________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ Original printed hardcovers 8vo (182x138 mm), ix-(1 bl.)-182-(1)-(1 bl.) pages Binding worn and soiled Rare first edition.
