Adams L-1468 (lacking 1 map); Brunet IV, col. 651 (without the plates); Cox I, pp. 354-355; Gay, Bibl. de l'Afrique et l'Arabe 3077 (without the maps); for the maps: Betz, The mapping of Africa 34-36, 186; Norwich, Africa 16. First edition of one of the main sources for authentic information on central Africa. Filippo Pigafetta, a relative of Antonio Pigafetta, Magellan's companion on his first circumnavigation of the world, based his work on the information he collected from the Portuguese traveller Duarte Lopez, who sailed to the Congo in 1578 and stayed in Loanda until 1587. Pigafetta's important and beautifully illustrated account deals with the geography of the country, its animals, the inhabitants and their customs, the Portuguese trade, missionary activities, etc. Of special interest are his history and descriptions of Congolese tribes and their kings. It remained the main source for information on the Congo and central Africa up to the middle of the 19th century. The fine and decorative map of Africa includes the Red Sea and parts of the Arabian Peninsula.With the maps repaired and mounted on cloth, and a tear repaired in 1 folding plate, slightly foxed, margins of the plates frayed (without affecting the images, but in one case reaching the border). Some small stains on the binding and the spine a bit worn. Good copy, complete with all the maps and plates.

Willstätter, Richard Martin Autographed letter signed, personal stationery, one page, 8,25 x 11,25 inch, Munich, 28.X.1935, in German, to a colleague, very interesting scientific content, written and signed in fountain pen, expected letter folds minor signs of wear at the top border - in very fine condition. "Sehr geehrter Herr Kollege: Für die liebenswürdige Übersendung Ihrer Abhandlung "Über die Unabhängigkeit der Kohlensäureassimilation der grünen Pflanzen von der Anwesenheit kleiner Sauerstoffmengen."bin ich Ihnen sehr verbunden; ich habe sie mit grossem Interesse gelesen. Auch mein früherer Assistent hat mich neuerdings in seinem Amsterdamer Vortrag zu der Ansicht bekannt, dass der Sauerstoff bei der Assimilation keine Funktion habe. So darf ich nicht starrköpfig auf der alten Meinung beharren, wenn ich auch nach wie vor der Ansicht bin, dass die Bildung von Radikalen mit Valenzlücke eine Rolle spielt und dass für die Radikalbildung die Anwesenheit von Sauerstoff Bedeutung haben könnte. Erlauben Sie mir, gewisse Erfahrungen über die Notwendigkeit der Anwesenheit geringer Sauerstoffmengen auf einem ganz anderen Gebiet zu erwähnen, nämlich bei der Wirksamkeit des Platinkatalysators z. B. für . Mit meinen verbindlichen Empfehlungen Ihr sehr ergebener R. Willstätter"

First edition. 7" X 5 1/2" original brown cloth, titles stamped in black on the front cover and spine, decorated front and rear endpapers, 370 [3] pp., frontispiece, preface, introductory, illustrated, plates, advertisements. This copy calls for maps as stated on the title page but none are present. We have seen this condition present in two other issues of this title. This booklet was first issued in 1883 and perhaps maps were included with that publication. Subsequent issues were rewritten in order to make the information more up-to-date for the tourists and settlers and perhaps including the maps was overlooked. This book provides descriptions and information on all of their divisions. The divisions are the St. Paul, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Northern Dakota, Dakota, Missouri, the Yellowstone Valley, Yellowstone, Montana, Rocky Mountain, Idaho, Oregon Railway & Navigation Company, the Columbia River, Portland, and the Pacific. Also includes an outline of the Northern Pacific Railroad's history. Adam's Herd 1687 lists a copy published in 1888. Light wear to the spine ends, corners and edges else a very good copy.

-Yale University Press (4 July 1995)-. Catalogue Raisonne. First edition. 300x250mm 642 pages. Illustrated in colour and black and white. Cloth. Fine in dustjacket. Painter, etcher, draughtsman, lithographer, watercolourist, and author of critical essays and aphorisms, James McNeill Whistler had a tremendous influence on the art and aesthetics of his era. Born in Massachusetts in 1834, he settled in London when he was 25 years old and for the next four decades produced hundreds of highly acclaimed (and sometimes highly criticised) works, often concentrating on two or more media at the same time. His prodigious output and proficiency, along with his eccentricities, polemics, and arguments with critics, won him wide recognition. This catalogue raisonne of Whistler's drawings, pastels and watercolours makes available many of his works that have never before been exhibited or published and demonstrates the wide range of his art. His drawings reveal the everyday working out of his ideas and note the world as it passed by Whistler with vigour and humour. The pastels include sensitive portraits, vigorous studies of models in the studio, and detailed views of Venetian palaces. The watercolours, perhaps his finest works, catch the subtle colours of northern skies and ever-changing seascapes. The catalogue raisonne begins with an introductory essay on Whistler's life and includes over 1700 entries and 1600 illustrations. Every extant work by Whistler, and many now missing, have been catalogued and reproduced, many in colour. We are specialists in Catalogues: Exhibitions, Auctions, Collections, etc., with a picture of the cover available on request. All items are as described and dispatched within 36 hours in a secure package. We are professional booksellers with over 32 years experience, you may order with confidence.

When Beatrix Potter was turned away by publishers, she decided to print a small run of her first book 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit' in 1901 and used Strangeway & Sons, London. This book is from the First Private Printing in December 1901, and rarer still, it has been signed and inscribed by Beatrix Potter. Peter Rabbit was a real bunny and Beatrix Potter?s pet. Peter Rabbit first appeared in a letter Beatrix potter wrote in 1893 to five year old Noel Moore, the son of Beatrix?s former governess. Beatrix Potter also write other letters to children with her now famous characters. The letters were so popular with the children that she decided to turn the letters into books.

When F.Warne and Co. Saw the marketability of Beatrix's 'Little Bunny Book' they decided to publish it themselves even though they had previously refused the book. They revised the book with Beatrix to include full colour illustrations and a colour front piece, and 1902 the first Trade Edition was Published by F.Warne and Co. The copy by F.Warne and Co.

?? [Keijo] (Seoul): ???????? (Korea Satoshitoku Office Museum), 1937. First edition. Softcover. g- to vg. Folio (12 1/2 x 9"). [12] tissue-guarded leaves (Plates). Original string bound decorative wrappers, with black lettering to front cover. Although the first half of the 20th century in Korean history is marked by the grave and painful experience of the Japanese occupation between 1910 and 1945, this period also saw the Japanese carrying out the first modern archaeological excavations of ancient Korean sites (royal tombs, temples, ceramic kilns) and preservation of their artifacts. Inaugurated in 1915, the Government General Museum was intended to gather and exhibit some of the best material found during these activities. Published between 1929 and 1943, the Museum bulletin featured some of the best pieces exhibited within its wall. This ninth volume published in 1937 reproduces in photogravure the following artifacts: - A terra cotta figurine of Buddha, with a clay mould for Buddhist figure (Koguryo period). - A silver statuette of Buddha and its bronze cylindrical case (Silla period). - A gilt bronze Yuan style statuette of Avalokitesvara (Koryo period).- A drawing of Avalokitesvara on hemp cloth (T'ang-Sung Dynasty), found in Chinese Turkestan. - Selected extracts from a transcription of a Buddhist scripture of Ganda-Vyuha (I) (Koryo period).- Selected extracts from a transcription of a Buddhist scripture of Ganda-Vyuha (II) (Koryo period). - Selected extracts from a transcription of a Buddhist scripture of Ganda-Vyuha (III) (Koryo period).- Kongo-ki and Kongo-rei (Buddhist bronze symbols) (Koryo period). - A bronze bell from Heizan county, Kokai province (I) (Koryo period).- A bronze bell from Heizan county, Kokai province (II) (Koryo period).- A bronze bell from Heizan county, Kokai province (III) (Koryo period).- A bronze drum from Heizan county, Kokai province (Koryo period).

OSCAR WILDE. Une maison de grenades. Paris, Éditions de la Plume, 1902, in-8° (190 x 140 mm), box bleu acier, décor sur les plats avec impression d?une gravure sur cuivre d?un jeu de lignes se prolongeant sur le dos, dos lisse, doublures de box bleu obscurci poncé avec un quadrillage marqué à chaud sur lequel se superpose un jeu de points grenat marqué à chaud, gardes volantes de velours bleu azur doublé de papier de chine, cahiers montés sur onglets de papier japon bleu, couvertures et dos conservés, emboîtage aimanté à mécanisme complexe (Joëlle Bocel, 2016). Édition originale française. Le tirage des grands papiers se limite à 3 premiers exemplaires sur papier de Chine suivis de 7 exemplaires sur papier du Japon et de 15 exemplaires sur papier de Hollande. LE NUMÉRO 1 DES 3 PREMIERS EXEMPLAIRES SUR PAPIER DE CHINE. LA DÉSILLUSION WILDIENNE DANS UN CRUEL ÉCRIN GRENAT. Le recueil est couronné d?un succès certain et consacre son auteur comme son ?uvre à la frange du symbolisme et à la francophilie notoire. En poète farouchement cosmopolite et amoureux de la langue de Shakespeare, c?est naturellement que le belge Georges Khnopff (1860-1927), frère cadet du fameux peintre symboliste Fernand Khnopff, prend pour obsession les textes encore non traduits de son confrère irlandais. Khnopff fait de la traduction un exercice d?excellence linguistique et d?invention : néologismes recherchés, anglicismes conservés, la plume wildienne ne connaît aucune trahison. Ainsi, La Société Nouvelle (1894) et La Nervie (1895) pré-éditent ses traductions des histoires grenadières. Deux ans après le décès miséreux de l?auteur de De Profundis, son talent et son esprit n?en sont pas moins vivaces, et Khnopff de publier chez les anglophiles Éditions de la Plume de Karl Boès, la toute première traduction française, fidèle et lyrique de l?intense douceur wildienne. REMARQUABLE RELIURE CONTEMPORAINE DE JOËLLE BOCEL HABILLANT LE NUMÉRO 1 DES RARISSIMES PAPIERS DE CHINE, EXEMPLAIRE DE LA PRESTIGIEUSE BIBLIOTHÈQUE LANG Une dizaine de piqûres recensées sur l?ensemble du volume mais celles-ci assez marquées, au reste exemplaire parfait. PROVENANCES : Georges-Emmanuel Lang (Dispersion du 30/01/1926, Cat.

First edition. Illustrated throughout. xxii, 296, [vi] pp. 8vo. Author's presentation copy. Inscribed on the half-title: "To F.L. Root with remembrance of the days at the Realty Trust and best wishes Anthony Fiala April 29/[19]38". The Ziegler Polar Expedition - or Fiala expedition - was a failed attempt to reach the North Pole. Departing Tromso in June 1903, the party made their way north as far as Teplitz Bay before their ship, America, was frozen in. Early on the morning of November 12, the ice began to crush the ship and at 8am, Fiala writes: "The ship was thrown over to starboard and her bow raised up on the ice." There is an accompanying image eerily reminiscent of Hurley's photographs of the Endurance similarly lost to the ice. Undaunted, the expedition continued and made three attempts to reach the pole, all unsuccessful. Original blindstamped green cloth, spine gilt, t.e.g. Partially unopened, extremities slightly rubbed. Gift inscription 1906 on flyleaf. A very good copy Illustrated throughout. xxii, 296, [vi] pp. 8vo
