Description:
Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier,, 1687. With many arresting engravings First Amsterdam edition, second overall after the first published in Paris the previous year, with a intriguing contemporary provenance. This uncommon account of the author's first expedition to Siam via the Cape Colony is profusely illustrated with engravings including of a "large lizard", dragon boats, and the king of Siam riding an elephant in front of his supplicants. This copy is inscribed in French opposite the additional engraved title, "This book belongs to me, Jean Paul Veranj, this month of June 1701. Signed at Rome in the time of the conclave of you, monsieur, your very humble and obedient servant. At the moment when you have just ordered me the agreements between the house of M. the Governor and M. the Marquis de la Chape. May I not fail". Veranj's clerical superior ("Monsieur") was perhaps one of the 58 cardinals who met in Rome to elect Pope Clement XI in 1700. Guy Tachard (1651-1712) was one of six Jesuit fathers who set… Read More

Description:
Calcutta: Calcutta Central Press Company Limited,, 1877. A unique work", presenting Indian music to the world Handsomely presented copy of the second edition, perhaps correctly the third, of this pioneering work of Indian musicology, first published 1875. The author founded the Bengal Music School, 1871 and the Bengal Academy of Music, 1881. Here he offers analyses of the Indian raga system including melodies transcribed in his newly devised Indian notation with Sanskrit words, and Western notation with transliterated Sanskrit words. Uncommon. Sourindra Mohun Tagore (1840-1914) was a scion of the wealthy bhadralok "middle class" which emerged in Bengal under British rule, "an ideological construct which was created in response to the political and economic domination by the British on the one hand and the cultural leadership among the colonized people on the other... cultural leaders of the indigenous colonized people" (Bhattacharyya). He studied Sanskrit and English at Hindu College, Calcutta,… Read More

Description:
Paris: Libraire Hachette et Cie,, 1876-94. The effects of centralization First editions of the author's magnum opus, a monumental and controversial work which argued that modern France is best understood as the result of a consistent process of centralization through its history. Due to the long publication period over near two decades, the work is rarely encountered as a complete set of first editions. Introduced by the Bourbons, centralization was "strengthened by the French Revolution, which destroyed the natural provinces and replaced them by departments which were mere administrative appendixes of the central government; in the hands of Napoleon Bonaparte the centralized administrative structure was an efficient tool of internal control and external conquest, but it became an unwieldy bureaucratic machine as soon as it was deprived of Napoleon's ruthless energy" (Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Six volumes, octavo (225 x 137 mm). Recent green half morocco, spines lettered in gilt, marbled sides and… Read More

Description:
Paris: Libraire de l. Hachette et Cie,, 1866. First edition of Taine's travelogue of his visit to Italy in 1864. "Taine had not only prepared his trip by extensive reading about Italian history and art, he also spent long hours in the libraries after his return before turning his journal notes into a book. Still, he maintained the style of immediate descriptions and delivered his historical explanations as the instantaneous reflections he had during his visits of cities, museums and churches. By characterizing and presenting his study as untouched thought he followed the genre of travel descriptions" (Feest, p. 95). Provenance: with the bookplate to the front pastedowns of Noel Pinelli (1881-1970), the minister of the merchant navy under the Vichy regime and a strong supporter of Marshal Pétain. His slip of handwritten notes on the edition is tipped in following the front free endpaper of vol. I, as with other books from his library. Two volumes, octavo (213 x 133 mm).

Description:
Kobe: Tamamura, Photographer,, 1907. First edition, first printing, of this scarce photobook, with a single copy recorded on WorldCat (Museum Rietberg, Switzerland), and copies likewise seldom encountered in commerce. The high-quality captioned photographs show views of old commercial streets including Motomachi and the Kobe Bund, as well as waterfalls, Shinto shrines, the Moon Temple, the bustling theatre quarter, the city's large Buddhist idol erected in 1892, and the picturesque Himeji Castle. Takagi Teijiro (born c.1875) studied under the celebrated photographer Kozaburo Tamamura, managing the Tamamura branch store in Kobe until the 20th century when he became its owner and assumed the right to use the Tamamura name. He is known to have produced at least 30 different photobooks in English introducing Japanese culture and customs. Takagi continued to use the Tamamura name until 1914 when he began trading as the T. Takagi Photographic Studio & Art Gallery. His studio operated until at least 1929.… Read More

Description:
[New Haven, CT:] , May 1937. The author's retained copy of his dissertation The author's retained copy of his dissertation, with his ownership inscription to the front free endpaper, "F. Tamagna 2790 Yale Station New Haven Conn.", some underlining to the foreword, and the occasional correction to the text. This dissertation formed the basis of Tamagna's best-known work, Banking and Finance in China (1942), a comprehensive survey of modern Chinese banks up to the early 1940s and their important role in supporting China's war against the Japanese invasion. Mainly the result of a personal investigation conducted by Tamagna in Japan, Manchukuo and China from March to November 1936, "the purpose of [Tamagna's dissertation] is an objective research into the current methods and possible developments of credit activities in China" (p. ii). Split into three parts, the first is a historical and political introduction to the three money markets in China (which Tamagna denotes as the traditional, the modern, and… Read More

Description:
Shanghai: China United Press,, 1935. First edition in English, first impression, of this comprehensive propagandistic account of the reconstruction of China since the foundation of the Republic of China in January 1912. The work was simultaneously published in French and German. Tang (1901-1970) was a journalist and politician who, in 1929, was appointed chief of the Communications Office to Europe for the Republic. Educated in England and Vienna, Tang was appointed as an adviser to the Foreign Ministry in 1933 and was influential in creating an international image of life in China, both through the China Today Series, begun in 1933, of which this is Volume III, and his English Encyclopedia of Modern China. In March 1940, at the establishment of Wang Jingwei's pro-Japanese collaborationist government in Nanjing, Tang assumed formal office in the regime as director of the International Publicity Bureau, until its collapse in 1945. The work provides a fascinating insight into how the newly established… Read More

Description:
Beijing: Renmin tiyu chubanshe,, 1976. A well-preserved and eye-catching Cultural Revolution poster celebrating the virtues of revolutionary enthusiasm and dedication in China's youth. Although this was one of 100,000 copies produced for the first printing, only a fraction survive in collectable condition. Throughout the Mao period, propaganda posters and publications portrayed teenagers and young adults as the builders of China's socialist tomorrow, urging them to dedicate themselves to making revolution in the face of all adversity. During the Cultural Revolution, after the heady radicalism of the Red Guard movement, Mao sanctioned the rustication of large numbers of students to the countryside to restore order in urban areas. Posters such as the present dramatic example aimed to pacify a youth generation feeling increasingly disillusioned with and alienated from the Communist project. Though not marked as such, the present copy is from the library of Paul Pickowicz (b. 1945), a notable scholar of… Read More

Description:
Edo: Okadaya Kashichi [& 5 others in Edo and Osaka,, c.1850]. A late Edo edition of this prepossessing catalogue of Japan's scenic beauty. The illustrator, Tani Buncho (1763-1840), was the leading Western-influenced topographical artist of his generation, adopting techniques that had a clear influence on Hokusai and Hiroshige. Tani's compositions are topographically accurate and seek to present the mountains in a natural, unadorned light. The work opens with Mounts Kinpu and Fuji and concludes with Mount Iwate, a stratovolcano in northern Honshu. The first edition, published in 1804, was released under the title Nihon meizan zufu. Three volumes (255 x 185 mm). Original blue wrappers, recently renewed brown thread yotsume toji stitching, spine ends capped with dark blue silk, woodblock title labels printed in black. Housed in custom blue cloth folding case. With over 100 double-page woodblock illustrations. Nineteenth-century black ink calligraphic ownership notations on rear pastedowns. Covers faded… Read More

Description:
Paris: Librairie de L. Hachette et Cie,, 1865. Promoting the metric system First edition of this striking exposition of the metric system, with the colour tables illustrating the system's measuring instruments, and the units of measurements of surface, volume, liquids, and weight, its application for measuring grain and other dry matter, and finally the metric system of coinage, illustrated with the coins of Napoleon III. This plate book was published alongside Tarnier's text volume explaining the system, Livret explicatif des tableaux du système métrique, published the same year. Tarnier writes in his introduction to that volume his intent to promote the understanding in France of the system, which had been adopted under the Revolution in 1799, abandoned by Napoleon in 1812, and reinstated in 1840. Much of rural France still continued to use the old weights and measures, although the metric system was becoming ubiquitous. Folio (420 x 283 mm).

Description:
Venice: Simone Occhi,, 1751. A compromise solution to the problem of the reality of magic First edition of this uncommon Italian treatise defending Tartarotti's subtle distinction between witchcraft and magic, this a beautifully preserved example in contemporary wrappers. Expanding the arguments articulated in his Congresso notturno (1749), Tartarotti posits that while witchcraft is an impossible phenomenon existing only in the realm of superstition, magic is real and well documented. The treatise added to a heated debate occurring in the mid-18th century among northern Italian intellectuals concerning the reality of witchcraft and magic, and whether there could be a distinction between the two; a debate which was replicated across Europe in this century. Abbot Girolamo Tartarotti was the proponent of a provocative, if highly specific, position between superstition and scepticism. Tartarotti argued against the possibility of witchcraft, seeing witches sabbaths, covens, and pacts with the Devil as… Read More
