Description:
Rio de Janeiro: Carlos Gaspar da Silva,, 1888. A rare model of early Brazilian naturalism First and only edition, very scarce. The author's first and only novel, this is an early model of the naturalist movement in Brazilian literature. WorldCat records no copies in institutional libraries and no copies can be traced at auction. Emerging during the first decades of the Republican era - from the late 1880s - Brazilian naturalism developed from Zola's French model as a new aesthetic opposed to the old Romanticism, which was associated with the monarchy and thus seen as outdated and ideologically embarrassing. Embracing for the first time the contradictions and conflicts of a stratified and culturally varied society, this movement searched for national identity. More than any other contemporary genre, in fact, naturalist novels succeeded in visualizing the regional, racial, and sexual differences of Brazil, for example outlining the difficult reality of Black people, women, and homosexuals.

Description:
London: Simpkin, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent & Co., Limited,, 1900. Shackleton's only pre-exploration publication First edition, first impression, of Shackleton's first book, which he self-published and co-wrote with the ship's surgeon McLean, containing a detailed record of daily activities and a list of all the men on board. During this cruise, Shackleton met Cedric Longstaff, the son of Llewellyn W. Longstaff. The latter pledged £25,000 to Markham's scheme for a British expedition to Antarctica. It was on the recommendation of Llewellyn's son, Lieutenant Cedric Longstaff, that Shackleton was made the third officer for the Discovery Expedition. The arguably poor assembling of this book, printed on adhesion-prone art paper and wire-stitched into paper-covered boards, can make it difficult to find in collectable condition. Foolscap quarto. Original pictorial paper-covered boards, sometime rebacked with black cloth backstrip, front cover lettered in black and white. Photographic frontispiece, further… Read More

Description:
São Paulo: Libraria Martins Editóra,, 1944. First edition, first printing, presentation copy from the author to his future wife Marjorie Boynton, inscribed on the front free endpaper "à prezada amiga Marge para que floresça tanto sua logica quanto sen português - Van" (translatable as "To my dear friend Marge so that both her logic and her Portuguese can flourish"). At the time Quine was still married to his first wife Naomi Clayton; he would divorce her in 1947, and marry Marjorie one year later - a meaningful presentation copy. Quine wrote O Sentido da Nova Logica - written and first published in Portuguese, rather than Quine's other works which were written and first published in English - while serving as visiting professor at the Free School of Sociology and Political Science of the University of São Paulo in Brazil. It was intended as an introductory work on mathematical logic, with an emphasis upon its practical and philosophical applications; parts of the work were later developed into… Read More

Description:
Mexico City: Ediciones ERA,, 1968. Duchamp is surely Paz's artist because he is such a verbal artist - a poet's artist First edition, first printing, uncommon complete and in such fresh condition. This portfolio comprises seven items, including the first appearance of Paz's essay O el castillo de la pureza, published separately in English in 1970, and a colour transparency reproduction of Duchamp's The Large Glass. In his essay, Paz examines Duchamp's The Large Glass while dwelling on the problems he sees in modern art. "Duchamp is surely Paz's artist because he is such a verbal artist - a poet's artist. What Duchamp sees, as Paz states it, is 'invisible reality'. Paz's ability to understand contemporary art stems from his cultural-historical studies in Mexican society. His credentials for interpreting Duchamp are perhaps more appropriate than those of an art historian, since Paz is adept at interpreting the role of the artist within a society, rather than the role of the artist as simply art-maker"… Read More

Description:
Warsaw: Przeglad Tygodniowy,, 1873. First edition in Polish of Mill's Utilitarianism (first, 1863), his important "definition of Utilitarianism, and a defence of the philosophy expressed by it" (MacMinn, et al.) The translator was the positivist philosopher, publicist, and jurist Feliks Bogacki (1847-1916). As stated on the title page, this Polish edition was authorized by Mill. Mill had been following closely the events in Poland of the 1860s, as his "Letter on Poland", published in the Penny Newsman for March 15 1863, demonstrates. It is "a discussion of the insurrectionary movement in Poland which, Mill maintains, is designed to return the lands to the peasants; [it] is popular in origin; and is, because it is a revolution, indicative of the commencement of a new era in the downtrodden countries of Europe" (MacMinn, Hainds & McCrimmon, p. 94). "Western liberals - particularly English liberals - were extolled by many in Warsaw in the late 1860s and 1870s, but when their work was translated, it was… Read More

Oxford: Clarendon Press,, 1983. Inscribed by Karl Popper to his assistant Revised edition, presentation copy from Popper to his longtime personal assistant, inscribed on the half-title "To Melitta Mew from Karl Popper 22-8-85". Mew (1929-2018) was Popper's assistant from 1982. "In addition to secretarial work, this also meant translation work, the organization of everyday life for the recently widowed philosopher as well as accompanying him on trips all over the world to lectures, congresses and awards. Karl Popper had become a member of the Mew family" (obituary, Universität Klagenfurt website, accessible online, translated). Mew is recorded, following Popper's wife's death in 1985, as "managing every aspect of his life" (Haim Hacohen, p. 548). She became his estate administrator after his death in 1994, and took an active part in preserving his legacy, bequeathing most of his library, manuscripts, and correspondence to the Universität Klagenfurt.

London: T. Cadell,, 1790. An important book in the growing interest of Orientalism First London edition; originally published Calcutta 1788, Lowndes notes that a French edition followed in 1797. "An important book in the growing interest of Orientalism" (Ghani). Francklin (1763-1839) was the son of the classical scholar and dramatist Thomas Francklin. He was educated at Westminster and Trinity College, Cambridge, before being commissioned ensign in the Bengal Army and posted to the 19th Bengal Native Infantry in 1783, rising by 1814 to lieutenant-colonel both in his regiment and in the Army. "A distinguished officer, Francklin also enjoyed considerable reputation as an oriental scholar. In 1786 he made a tour of Persia, in the course of which he lived at Shiraz for eight months as the close friend of a Persian family, and was thus able to write a fuller account of Persian customs than had before appeared...

Description:
London: Printed by W. and J. Richardson, for John Murray,, 1771. Among the earliest works of empirical sociology First edition of Millar's most important work, one of the earliest and finest examples of an empirical approach to sociology. "Of a remarkably liberal tone, Millar's study of social rank covers class distinction, the history and condition of women, primitive society, and the relationship between parent and child, and master and servant" (German, p. 67). The influence of Montesquieu and, particularly, of Hume's The Populousness of Ancient Nations is evident. Millar was a supporter of the American cause and an opponent of slavery; both feature in the final chapter, "Of the condition of servants in different parts of the world". Born in Lanarkshire the son of the local minister, Millar (1735-1801) "studied law at Glasgow, where he was an intimate of James Watt (1736-1819), the inventor of the steam engine, and where he attended the lectures of Adam Smith. After completion of his studies,… Read More
