         A collection of ca 1700 original pen and wash drawings of plants from the botanical garden at Lemberg, [ca 1862-1872].

      . The drawings are on laid paper 215 x 140mm, and preserved in 9 blue folding boxes. A highly unusual archive of botanical illustrations of the botanical garden at Lemberg, now L'viv, Ukraine, then part of the Austro-Hungarian empire, executed by Adolf Weiss, the pre-eminent Austrian botanist of his day. The drawings are of a very high quality and Weiss was known to be an accomplished artist: "... die seltene Meisterschaft in der Handhabung von Pinsel und Feder macht die Abbildungen... zu den auch künstlerisch vollendesten, die wir besitzen (... the rare mastery and use of the brush and pen make [his] illustrations the most artistically accomplished we have) (Oesterr. Bot. Zeitschrift, 1884). Each drawing shows the plant in flower, with anatomical details supplied below. Most of the sheets have the Linnaean binominals at the foot. Each is surrounded by a border either scored or in pencil, which presumably was intended to indicate the size of an engraved plate. Likewise reference is made at the bottom to Kunth's 'Enumeratio plantarum' (5 vols, 1833-1850) indicating volume and page. All drawings are all in the same style; three have been signed by 'A Weiss del.', and one with initials only. This one shows an 'Aloe marginalis' in a wooden barrel with Weiss' initials A.W. dated 2/3 [18]65 Lemberg. It is a portrayal of the plant as it flowered in the Lemberg botanical garden. Weiss published a paper on the Aloe 'Agave Jacquiniana' which had flowered in the Lemberg Garden in 1864. Weiss was assisted by his wife Hermine, and two drawings bear her signature. In style the drawings are quite accomplished and graceful, and resemble some of the best botanical illustration of the end of the eighteenth and beginning of the nineteenth century. You would not be surprised it you were told there were 75 years earlier. Adolf Weiss (1837-1894) was born at Freiwaldau, Silesia. Between 1855 and 1858 he attended the University of Vienna where he studied botany. In 1862 he was appointed professor of botany and director of the botanic garden at Lemberg, but before taking up this post he undertook a tour of Italy, France, Switzerland and Germany to study botanical gardens in those countries and to forge links between them and Lemberg. Under Weiss's direction, the Lemberg gardens became the finest in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, with rare examples of flora of Lemberg and the Carpathians. Weiss published on the flora of Lemberg (1865). Together with Jarolim, an assistant of his institute, he made numerous excursions to collect plants in the Lemberg area and his herbarium was still preserved in the Lemberg University Museum in 1881. In 1872 he moved to the University of Prague, where he founded the first institute of plant physiology in the Empire. Weiss was the undoubtedly the most important Austrian botanist and plant anatomist of his time and is best remembered for his publications on plant anatomy. It is sad that today he is all but forgotten in Lemberg where he did his most important work. Sadder still, there is now scarcely a trace of his fine botanical garden. The present collection therefore remains a unique testament to this influential botanist and his garden. Together with the plates there are some leaves with plant names and numbers; on one there is Weiss' name dated 12.7.65. Oesterr. Bot. Zeitschrift XXXI, 1881 'B. Blocki, Dr. A. Weiss' Herbar im Lemberg Universitätsmuseum'; Oesterr. Bot. Zeitschrift, XXXIV, 1884 'Gallerie österreichischer Botaniker, XXX. G. Adolf Weiss'; Oesterr. Bot. Zeitschrift XLIV 'A. Nestler, G.A. Weiss (obituary); Wurzbach, Biographisches Lexikon des öst. Kaiserstaates, LIV, 82ff..

         Reflections in Palestine, 1883.

      London, Macmillan, 1884.. Duodecimo. Pp. x, (2), 124. Plus 3 lithograph maps on 2 plates, printed in black with additional colour by hand. Sketch illustrations to text. Hardcover, original grey cloth, bit discoloured and marked, printed and decorated in red and black. Chalked forest-green endpapers (bookplate removed from front paste-down), first inner hinge mended. In a very good condition, fine interior, crisp maps. ~ First edition. British army General Charles George Gordon (1833-85), popularly known as "Chinese Gordon", served in the Crimean War and in the 1860 expedition to China, where he took part in the capture of Beijing and later commanded the Chinese force against the Taiping Rebellion. Appointed governour of Sudan in 1877, he waged a vigorous campaign against slave traders. He resigned in 1879, and in 1883 travelled to the Holy Land where he remained for a year, devoting his time to the study of Biblical history and of the antiquities of Jerusalem. In 1884 he was called back to service and was sent to the Sudan to defeat the Mahdi. During the campaign he was cut-off and besieged at Khartoum for 10 months. A relief expedition, belatedly dispatched from England, reached the garrison two days after it had been stormed by the Mahdists, who killed Gordon. Gordon's death stirred public indignation and contributed to the collapse of the Gladstone government in 1885. "Reflections in Palestine" is based on Gordon's observations during his year-long visit to the Holy Land. It was published by his friends while he was posted in Khartoum, shortly before his death. The book is divided into Topographical and Religious sections. In the first, Gordon describes in detail the topography and architecture of some of the major holy places he had visited, while the second part is dedicated to the religious contemplations these places has aroused in him. Lytton Strachey, in "Eminent Victorians" (1918), writes this wonderful memoir of Gordon: "During the year 1883, a solitary English gentleman was to be seen, wandering, with a thick book under his arm, in the neighbourhood of Jerusalem. To the friendly inquirer, he would explain that he was engaged in elucidating four questions: the site of the crucifixion; the line of division between the tribes of Benjamin and Judah; the identification of Gibeon; and the position of the Garden of Eden. He was also, he would add, most anxious to discover the spot where the Ark first touched ground, after the subsidence of the Flood: he believed, indeed, that he had solved that problem, as a reference to some passages in the book which he was carrying would show."

         Collection of 20 Trade Cards for Soapine, French Laundry Soap, and others

      Kendell Mfg. Co. [and others], Providence, Rhode Island 1884 - Set of 20 trade cards for two brands of soap, all designed by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, her first published works. Gilman is best-known for her books *The Yellow Wall Paper, Women and Economics* and *Herland* but first, as a graduate of the Rhode Isaland School of Design, she designed trade cards in concert with her cousin Robert Brown for various local businesses. Her original sketches for some of the cards are preserved among her papers, approximately 35-40 cards are attributed to her by Florey. Triplicates of one card (but each with different printing on the verso), else each is different. Removed from an album with small glue marks and modest scrapes on the reverse, small chip on the corner of one card, else very good or better. The cards are approximately 4.5" x 3" and are by turns comic or whimsical, and for the most part seem to be at pains not to emphasize the drudgery of doing laundry. Florey, *Women's Suffrage Memorabilia*; Lane, *To Herland and Beyond*; Gilman, *The Living*.

         The Complete Works of Nathaniel Hawthorne (Hawthorne's Works)

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, (Riverside Press), 1884. Octavo, 12 volumes. Three quarters leather. Complete set of Hawthorne's works. Gilt tooling and titles to the spine, top edge gilt. In very good condition. A nice set.The widely celebrated author has been revered not only by the public but by his literary contemporaries as well. Edgar Allen Poe said, "[t]he style of Hawthorne is purity itself. His tone is singularly effective-wild, plaintive, thoughtful, and in full accordance with his themes... We look upon him as one of the few men of indisputable genius to whom our country has as yet given birth" (McFarland, 1988). Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote later that "Nathaniel Hawthorne's reputation as a writer is a very pleasing fact, because his writing is not good for anything, and this is a tribute to the man" (Nelson, 1981). Henry James praised Hawthorne, saying, "The fine thing in Hawthorne is that he cared for the deeper psychology, and that, in his way, he tried to become familiar with it" (Porte, 1969). Lastly, the poet John Greenleaf Whittier wrote that he enjoyed the "weird and subtle beauty" in Hawthorne's tales (Woodland, 1985).

Reliure signée Canape. EDITION ORIGINALE. UN DES 175 EXEMPLAIRES NUMEROTES SUR HOLLANDE après 40 ex. sur Japon. ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE signé : "Exemplaire de Mr Prevauts avec la sympathie cordiale d'Alphonse Daudet". Après l'échec retentissant de sa pièce "Le Roi en exil", Daudet se tourne vers une série de romans visant à décrire les moeurs parisiens. Après "Numa Roumestan" et "L'Evangéliste", il publit Sapho en s'inspirant de son histoire passionnée avec Marie Rieu. Paru d'abord dans l'Echo de Paris, il est édité à 80.000 exmplaires par Charpentier en mai 1884. Le succès est considérable, Edmond de Goncourt s'en fait l'écho: "Il va avoir une vente de 100.000 exemplaires. Son livre tue tous les livres, le mien en particulier" et confit à l'auteur : "Sapho est pour moi votre plus parfait livre, celui où vous avez fait Humain mieux que personne." Zola fait de même : "Ce dernier roman est celui qui me plaît le plus, qui me va le mieux, de tous les vôtres [.] Là, mon ami, vous avez touché à l'immortalité." Clouzot, Recherché même sur papier ordinaire. Joli exemplaire en reliure de l'époque de Canape.
