         Scribal manuscript copy of ‘V chem moia vera?’ [What I believe], for clandestine circulation.

      Russia, c.1884. - Contemporary manuscript copy of the banned text What I believe, in which Tolstoy set out the principles by which he ordered his life. ‘Between the completion of Anna Karenina, early in 1877, and the resumption of his literary activity in the year 1885, with his popular Tales, Tolstoy devoted himself to religious reflection Apart from the full retranslation of the Gospels with voluminous notes, the works [A Confession, The Gospel in Brief, and What I believe] are almost the only literary productions of his that appeared between his forty-ninth and fifty-seventh year, that is to say during eight of the years when his powers were at their zenith. An attempt was made in Russia to suppress these books, but they circulated clandestinely in large numbers ’ (Aylmer Maude, Introduction to his 1921 translation, reprinted 1940). Tolstoy had finished writing the book by September 1883, when he submitted his manuscript to the monthly Russkaia mysl’ (Russian Thought). The editor, Sergei Yuriev, was keen, and Tolstoy spent the whole of October proof-reading, only to leave his suitcase, containing the proofs, on a train in November. It was never recovered. Undaunted, Tolstoy set to work again, finally signing off the text on 22 January 1884. Fifty copies were printed, priced at 25 roubles, the idea being that a short print-run and a high price would help get it past the censor. But the ecclesiastical censorship committee had other ideas: ‘According to Tolstoy, all the most dangerous schools of thought (socialism, communism, etc.) have, at their heart, parts of the teachings of Christ, spread by the Church.’ The book was duly banned, and 39 copies were confiscated at the printers. This, however, did not put a stop to people reading the text. According to one of the editorial staff at Russkaia mysl’, none of the confiscated copies were burned, but circulated at court, and found their way into private libraries. From these, other copies were made, such as the present manuscript. The text was published in French, German, and English in 1885; Russian-language editions appeared in Switzerland, Germany, and England, but the book was not printed in its entirety in Russia until over twenty years later, in 1906. See the Polnoe sobranie sochinenii (1957) XXIII, 548ff. 4to (262 × 210 mm), pp. 234; drop-head title; neat ms. ink on paper; contemporary polished plum roan, spine sunned and rubbed, upper board lettered gilt; early private ownership of P. K. Prianishnikov to front free endpaper; cloth slipcase, sunned and worn. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Autograph Letter Signed from Czechoslovak Independence Movement Leader and Future President EDUARD BENES

      - BENES, EDUARD. (1884-1948). Czechoslovak statesman; president from 1935-38 and 1946-48. ALS. ("Eduard Benes" and "E.B."). 2¼pp. 8vo. Paris, August 27, N.y. [between 1916 and 1918]. On stationery of the Czechoslovak National Council. To French Anthropologist Dr. Arthur Chervin. In French with translation. "I have tried to find a map of Serbia, but I am sorry that I have not found anything of the sort you want. I do not have a general staff map, and what I have here is not detailed enough. But in a week I will receive a German atlas where I hope to find the maps you are looking for. If you could wait a little longer, I would be very glad to make this atlas available to you. I am sorry that I cannot help you at this very moment. With my very best wishes, I am yours respectfully. - P.S. Surely you know that in the book by [Louis] Niederle La Race Slav there are references, obviously not quite sufficient, that might be of help to you." During World War I, Benes emerged as one of the leaders of the Czech independence movement, which sought autonomy from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, of which it had long been a part. In 1915, Benes traveled to Paris to garner foreign support for the movement, forming the Czechoslovak National Council there in 1916. For two years he served as the organization's secretary as well as minister of the interior and foreign affairs for the provisional Czechoslovak government. Upon the declaration of Czech independence signed by Benes in 1918, he became the new country's first foreign minister, a position he held until 1935 when he replaced Tomás Masaryk as president. Much of his presidency was spent in exile because of the nation's dismemberment under the terms of the Munich Pact concluded between Great Britain and Germany. During World War II, he headed a provisional government in London, returning home at the war's end to become president for the second time in 1946, holding office until shortly after the Communist takeover two years later. Chervin is the author of Bolivian Anthropology, Some Skulls of Estonians and Military Anthropometry. In excellent condition and uncommon in ALS and from this period. * All our items are sent via Federal Express. Additional postage may be requested. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         Journal of Indian Art and Industry

      1. INDIA. Journal of Indian Art and Industry. Volume 1 through Volume 9 Number 72.Bound in 9 Volumes. Illustrated with 925 plates of which 435 are chromolithographs. Folio, bound in later cloth with the original wrappers bound in. London: W.Griggs: 1884-1900.The present set comprises the first nine volumes of the Journal of Indian Art. The series, printed in 17 volumes between the years 1884 and 1917 under the patronage of the Indian Government, combined essays of leading scholars, such as George M. Birdwood and John Lockwood Kipling, with photo- and chromolithographic illustrations of pottery, metalwork, jewelry, architectural details, tapestries and textiles, many with gold and silver overprinting. The journal, especially the early issues, outlines a series of debates that occurred in the latter half of the nineteenth-century pertaining to colonial art history and the differentiation between "industrial" and "traditional" arts in India. This set represents the highpoint of the art of chromolithography. Most sets went into institutions, and when they do appear on the market tend to reflect that, with the plates often stamped and the sets seriously defective. This set has survived in remarkably good condtion, with the plates bright, fresh and unstamped.. Indispensable from anyone interested in Indian art. The set is fundamentally complete, but it is possibly lacking two plates from no 16 (inlay/sandlewood carving, and pottery and lacquerware) , and 33 (lacking plate 12, so has only 18 plates, but there is an extra unnumbered plate, leaving the plate count correct). However, number 15 calls for 12 plates but has 15 plates, of which one is a duplicate. In sum, it is possibly lacking two plates but has three additional plates.

Jules Le Petit: printed justification; Bernard Breslauer. *** first edition, l’exemplaire de t?te, printed on vellum for the author’s wife with the etched vignettes in three states, extra to the regular paper edition, in-octavo, in 110 copies of which 10 on Holland, 40 on Japan and 60 on Whatman. In 17 letters the author instructs a novice book collector in the art of forming a bibliophile’s library. The focus is naturally French, with chapters on collecting early French literature, the classics, and modern writers. Le Petit emphasizes the need for a bibliographical reference library, explains how to choose the correct edition, delves into association and signed copies, and in the last two chapters briefly surveys bookbinding and binders. He devotes a paragraph to Lortic (1822-1892), one of the most gifted modern binders, an especially skilled finisher, if controversial for his sometimes heavy use of gold. In 1884 Lortic ceded his atelier to his two sons Marcellin and Paul, who worked together until 1892, and whom Petit commissioned to execute the present binding.

         Three Period Copies of Autograph Letters Signed to Dr. James Croll (physical geologist, 1821-90), Kew Gardens, 28 March, 1 & 6 April 1884, discussing issues of Arctic interest including the 'hopelessly unintelligible' question of whether specimens of wood found in the Arctic are evidence of interglacial warming periods, expressing particular scepticism as to Sir Edward Belcher's claims to have found a tree stump embedded in frozen clay, 'Belcher you know was a notoriously untruthful man . The best (and most deservedly) hated man of his day in the Navy.']

      London, 1884. The first two letters four pages and the third six pages on octavo bifolia ca. (18x11,5 cm), all with Montreal Cottage, Perth blind stamps. Letters with fold marks but overall in very good condition. Hooker had gained early experience in the Polar regions as a young botanist with Sir James Clark Ross's Antarctic expedition on Erebus, 1839-43, whose scientific results he published in six volumes. He succeeded his father as Director of Kew Gardens in 1865. He was also a close friend of Charles Darwin and "among the founders of the X Club, a private dining society that supported Darwinism" (Oxford DNB). "The 1860s and 1870s saw renewed interest in astronomical and physical causes of glaciations. Geologists had long laboured to explain the existence of extremely cold glacial conditions in now-temperate latitudes, and the remains of subtropical flora in polar regions., Croll advanced ., the theory that global weather patterns would be indirectly affected by the periodic changes in the eccentricity of the earth's orbit about the sun, for a winter occurring when the earth was in the aphelion of its most eccentric orbit would be bitterly cold, and this would set in motion a chain of large-scale climatic changes resulting in large tracts of glacial land ice - an ice age" (Oxford DNB).
