         Os Lusiadas (the Lusiads) [and] Camoens: His Life and His Lusiads [and] Camoens. The Lyricks

      Bernard Quaritch, London 1884 - 6 volumes, xix, 250, [251]-471, vii, 366, [369-738], 265, [269-540]p.

Each volume has the bookplate of Burke Casari, a Burton collector and enthusiast. Camoes was a great 16th century Portuguese poet. Burton projected at least four more Camoes-related volumes but they were apparently never published. [See Penzer's "Annotated Bibliography" at pages 103-106]. Isabel Burton was identified as editor of these rather scarce volumes. 1st ed. of these three two volume sets of Camoes-related Burton translations which were uniformly bound and also numbered I-VI on the backstrips. The "Os Lusiadas" volumes are the 2nd issue of the 1st ed., which is actually uniform in size and binding with the 1st eds. of the other 2 sets. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Christmas Greetings (from a Fairy to a Child).

      [London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1884]. Sextodecimo (16mo), single leaf, printed on one side only. Unbound as issued, printed on paper watermarked "E. Towgood Fine". Fine condition. First separate edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author in his customary purple ink, "Dorothea Winterbotham, from Lewis Carroll. A memento of Xmas, 1889." Dodgson only used his famous pseudonym in presentations to child-friends, as opposed to the usual "from the Author" inscription. Although he used the name of Lewis Carroll to avoid all personal publicity, Dodgson "broke his rule of disavowal often, usually with children whose friendships had ripened to the point where he wished to confide in them, to share a great secret with them, but sometimes even earlier, when he was in pursuit and he rightly assumed that the fame of the author of the Alice books would help to break the ice with the parents of likely candidates" (Cohen, p. 191). Originally written in 1867, this short poem was first published in 1869, when it appeared in Phantasmagoria with slight variations. This poem also appears as the final text on the last page of his 1886 facsimile, Alice's Adventures Under Ground (1886). provenance: Private Collection of Justin Schiller, Christie's New York, Wednesday 9 December 1998, Lot 15. In a plastic sleeve with the Schiller bookplate.

         Le Livre de Demain.

      - Two chromolithographs, four etchings, four illus. of the chromatic circle on two plates, six full-page silhouettes, two photolithographs, two leaves of limitation & colophon, & eleven tipped-in paper samples. Printed on 44 different kinds of paper & in many colors. Two parts in one vol. 8vo, orig. printed wrappers bound-in orig. citron morocco signed by Canapé-Beltz; covers panelled in gilt with red, green, & blue morocco inlays; spine divided into six compartments, five with red & black inlays, dentelles gilt with red morocco inlays, a.e.g. [Blois: R. Marchand, 1884]. First edition, and a magnificently bound copy of this tour-de-force of book- and papermaking, limited to 250 numbered copies, signed by the author and the publisher. Originally issued in separate fascicles, this is a remarkable, complex, and beautiful book, printed on 44 different kinds of paper and employing complex combinations of color and printing techniques. The book was issued to demonstrate the newest techniques of printing and styles of book design. The first three sections contain essays on the history of paper, ink, and the use of color in printing. This third part is particularly dazzling as each typographical border of every page has been printed using different color combinations to demonstrate the contrasts and harmonies of combining colors. The second part — "Applications" — is printed on various kinds of tinted paper (mostly coming from various named French mills but including a few Dutch and English mills), all printed and decorated employing flamboyant combinations of types and ink colors. Eleven original samples of rare papers, from ancient papyrus to modern Japanese, are tipped-in at end. Rochas d’Aiglun (1837-1914), was a leading French parapsychologist, historian, translator, writer, military engineer, and administrator. He wrote important works on military engineering history, ancient technology, hydraulic organs, water clocks, ancient surveying instruments, temple machinery, Greek artillery, and ancient railways. This copy contains a presentation inscription from Rochas to Gaston Tissandier (1843-99), the French chemist, meteorologist, aviator, and editor, on the added portrait of Rochas. This portrait has been especially inserted and is not present in most copies. Very fine copy preserved in the original chemise and slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; 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]

         Manual of classical Erotology (De figuris Veneris) . Latin text and literal English version.

      Charles Carrington],, 'Manchester One Hundred Copies privately printed for Viscount Julian Smithson M.A. and friends' [Paris 1884 - First edition of this important parallel English, Latin and Greek version. It followed a poor piracy of 1882 badly translated from Liseux's French edition of 1882. Carrington gave a wry veiled account of its publication in his 1902 catalogue, Forbidden Books: 'Were I a bookseller, I do not think I should ever take the trouble to print such a book as I have now before me. Here is a Latin work, full of notes, and bristling with Greek quotations. A most careful and masterly translation has been placed opposite every page of the original text, and it needs no literary critic to see that no one but a real classical scholar-an old Oxford man-could ever have successfully struggled with such a task . The two stout volumes have evidently been printed on the Continent-and for very good and valid reasons, as no English printer would dare to undertake such a work,- therefore each page would have to be submitted to the translator, at least three or four times, foreign compositors working mechanically. Many months would thus pass in wearisome proof-reading, and when at last the hundred copies are struck off, and each man receives his due, what margin of profit awaits the silly bookseller-publisher? He is insulted in every way and laughed at if he dares to wonder that the British Customs seize any copies .'Carrington published some 300 titles (some using his own name and others using false imprints, as here) mainly in Paris where he lived from about 1894 until 1907, selling books from a shop in the Faubourg Montmartre. He notably printed a number of works by Oscar Wilde when few other publishers would risk implication in Wilde's downfall and, besides outright pornography, he printed a number of editions of classical and oriental authors and important works on the psychology of sex. In 1907 he was deported from France for consistently publishing and selling literature "of a very obscene and vulgar character". He continued his publishing business in Brussels before returning to Paris in 1912. By 1920 Carrington was blind from the effects of advanced syphilis, being admitted to the mental hospital at Ivry, south of Paris, where he died in 1921. 2 vols, 8vo (200 × 130 mm), pp. xviii, 261, [1]; [4], 250, [2]. Partially uncut and preserved with the original wrappers in early twentieth-century half morocco, spines attractively gilt with floral tools and onlays, top edge gilt. Inkstamps of Charles S. Dixwell to front free endpapers. An excellent copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

         Amedeo MODIGLIANI

      - Amedeo MODIGLIANI (1884.1920) Lettre autographe signée à Paulette Philippi dite « Manon ». Deux pages ½ in-8° sur papier quadrillé. Paris. (1906-1910). Légères consolidations aux plis. « Je ne peux expliquer ce qui est arrivé que par le mélange des poisons. » Très rare lettre de jeunesse de Modigliani, adressée à Manon, égérie des peintres de Montparnasse, fournisseur de drogues et de plaisirs pour les artistes de La Bohème. Le peintre s’excuse de son comportement inacceptable qu’il attribue au Mélange des Poisons, décrit une scène de nuit hallucinatoire et se pose en « messager de joie » « Chère amie, Ne m’en veuillez pas de ma conduite d’hier. Je jure sur la tête de ma mère de n’avoir aucune rancune vis-à-vis (sic). Je ne peux expliquer ce qui est arrivé que par le mélange des poisons. Je garde un souvenir admirable du spectacle d’en face d’où sortait la musique. Car les fenêtres éclairées donnaient l’idée d’un éclairage a giorno dans des pièces désertes et sonores. Un homme y est arrivé et après que la petite porte de la vaste maison s’est refermée, les pièces se sont remplies d’encore plus de lumière et d’éclat et de sonorité et de silence. Que dire du jardin admirable dans la nuit ! Laissez-moi donc vous embrasser les mains, chère Manon. Je vous souhaite le bonheur tel que je le sens s’approcher de moi même. Soyez heureuse dans votre belle maison et bientôt vous verrez apparaître un messager de joie. Ouassalam (la paix soit avec toi). Modigliani ». Comme la plupart des lettres d’Amedeo, celle-ci n’est ni datée, ni écrite d’un lieu spécifié. Le catalogue de Parke Bernet identifiait par erreur la célèbre maîtresse du peintre, Béatrice Hastings sous les traits de cette énigmatique « Manon ». Mais Manon renvoie sans aucun doute à un moment antérieur de la vie du peintre. De son vrai nom Paulette Philippi, Manon tenait rue de Douai à Montparnasse une sorte de salon chinois où, dans ces premières années du XIXe siècle, les jeunes peintres se livraient aux paradis des stupéfiants. C’est par Manon et par certains autres de ses « collègues » que l’usage des drogues se répandit dans la Bohème parisienne de l’époque. Manon abusait des plus beaux et s’éprenait de certains. Elle apparaît sous le nom d’Opia dans le remarquable journal de Henri-Pierre Roché. Paul fort en fera la muse de l’une de ses Ballades françaises (Paris sentimental). Et René Dalize, l’ami d’apollinaire, qualifiera cette Manon de « Malherbe de la prostitution », selon une formule relevée par André Salmon. « J’ai fumé chez Manon. Apollinaire a fumé. Picasso s’y essaya sans persévérer. On put voir un instant, dans l’atelier du Bateau-Lavoir, un embryon de fumerie ( ) Manon qui parfois montait place du tertre y avait remarqué Modigliani, le trouvant beau. Elle me pressait de le lui ramener rue de Douai : Ca ne serait pas tellement pour ce qui est de la chose ( ) mais tu trouves pas qu’un beau type comme lui ( ), ça ferait bien sur ma natte ? Je crois qu’il mordrait au truc, et aussi j’aurais du plaisir, après quelques pipes bien tassées, à couler les doigts dans sa chevelure orientale » (A. Salmon, La vie passionnée de Modigliani, 1957, pp. 85-87). 45000€ Manon fut pendant quelques temps la maîtresse de Georges Braque. Il fallut toute l’habilité de Picasso et de sa compagne Fernande Olivier pour séparer le jeune Braque de son égérie jugée dangereuse pour talent de leur ami. « Modigliani n’était pas un vicieux, un vulgaire ivrogne, un décadent ; il prenait parfois de l’absinthe à double dose, mais c’était un moyen, pas une fin ; il utilisait l’excitation qu’il en retirait pour voir plus profondément en lui ( ) Modigliani avait toujours un peu de haschich dans la poche de son gilet, mais il en prenait rarement, seulement dans les cas exceptionnels où il avait besoin de cette sérénité orientale que procurait la drogue » (La Vita di un Pittore, in C. Parisot, Gino Severini. p. 110) [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         TREASURE ISLAND

      1884. [the first illustrated edition] With Illustrations. Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1884. 12 pp undated ads. Original slate grey cloth decorated in black. First American (and first illustrated) Edition. The first English edition, unillustrated, had been published in November 1883; this American edition, with four plates by F.T. Merrill, was published in February 1884. (The first English illustrated edition, with 26 plates including the four from Roberts Bros., was not published until mid-1885.)~This copy is from the second and (in our experience) usual issue -- with the error "rain" corrected to "vain" on the last line of p. 40, and with twelve rather than four pages of ads.~According to bibliographers (such as the Yale and Princeton collections), the book appears in dark brown, slate grey or mustard-yellow cloth, without priority; we have also had aqua blue.~Condition is about very good -- moderate wear at the bottom edge of the volume, spine lightly speckled, some pages foxed or hand-soiled within. The frontispiece map and the title page are browned from the still-present tissue guard; atypically, the original leafy endpapers remain clean and un-cracked.~In our experience, this Boston edition is considerably scarcer than the 1883 English one, even on this side of the Atlantic -- and when it does turn up, it is typically in atrocious condition. Beinecke (Yale) 244 (yellow) & 245 (grey) -- no indication of p. 40 reading, but both with 4 pp ads; Princeton 22A, copy 1 (grey, "rain," 4 pp ads) & copy 2 (yellow, "vain," 12 pp ads) & copy 3 (brown, "vain," 12 pp ads).

         Naîs Micoulin

      Paris: G. Charpentier, 1884. First Edition. INSCRIBED by Émile Zola. First edition of the author's scarce short-story collection, which includes Naîs Micoulin, Nantas, La Mort d'Olivier Becaille, Madame Neigeon, Les Coquillages de M. Chabre, and Jacques Damour. Zola has inscribed the book on the half title to an old school friend who became a sculptor: " `a Philippe Solari / son ami / Emile Zola." Bound in contemporary quarter calf. Light wear and rubbing to edges, flaking of calf to spine, some light scattered foxing. Otherwise, Very Good. SCARCE signed. Zola (1840-1902) and Solari (1840-1906) were life-long friends, meeting at boarding school in Aix-en-Provence. Solari was one of the few boys at school who befriended Zola and didn't taunt him for his lisp. Zola championed Solari's sculptures on numerous occasions and, in fact, a bust by Solari decorates Zola's tombstone in Montmartre cemetery. A nice association copy.
