Of these, the vast majority were bound immediately in orange-brown cloth, in two variant bindings by Burn and Edmonds & Remnants.

A further 12 copies were recorded in the publisher's ledger as having been 'sewed in stiff covers'. It is likely that one or other of these small groups of copies were bound in this blue cloth.

        Why be Good Tempered? One page of Manuscript in Thackeray's hand from volume I of his novel "The Newcomes". Signed and dated, May 30, 1860.

      1860 1860 - 21 lines on recto only of single quarto sheet. The Newcomes was published in twenty four numbers, 1853-55. It followed the success of Vanity Fair (1847), which rapidly shot Thackeray to fame, and the subsequent novels Pendennis (1848-50) and Henry Esmond (1852). This manuscript was probably requested by a charitable organisation or written out for a friend. This is a playful page advocating the benefits of being bad tempered: 'Surely a fine furious temper, if accompanied with a certain magnanimity and bravery . is one of the most precious and fortunate gifts with w[hi]c[h] a gentleman, a lady can be endowed . 'The lazy grow tired of contending with him; the timid coax and flatter him; and as almost every one is timid or lazy, a bad tempered man is want to have his own way . She [the bad tempered female] has the place which she likes in the drawing room . if the family are taking their tour in the summer it is she who ordains whether they shall go, and where they shall stop' But God forbid you are a person of mild manners and temper: 'nobody cares whether we are pleased or not. Our wives go to the Milliners, & send us the bill, and we pay it . our sons loll in the arm chair we should like . and smoke in the dining room, our taylors fit us badly; our butchers give us the youngest mutton . and our servants go out whenever they like' PLEASE NOTE: For customers within the UK and the EU, this item is subject to VAT.

        Manuscript on paper entitled "Catalogue des Livres de Mr. Berard."

      Title within fine architectural grey wash frame & engraved port. of the collector inlaid on following leaf. Written in a fine scribal hand in red & black ink. 2 p.l., 351 pp. Large 4to (276 x 210 mm.), cont. half-morocco & marbled boards (some scuffing), spine nicely gilt, t.e.g. [Paris: ca. 1860]. Bérard (1806-73), a practicing architect, was an important member of a group of scholarly amateurs in France who in the 1840s and 1850s began the serious study of historical architecture and design and the comprehensive collecting of primary graphic material in the decorative arts. Bérard's monographs on the ornament prints of François Cuvilliés (1859) and Daniel Marot (1865) have never been superseded. Bérard's manuscript catalogue details in 1174 lots his important collections of architectural and ornament books, prints, and drawings, amongst the richest ever formed. The collections were inherited by Bérard's son, Eugène Charles Bérard (1838-90), who added greatly to the drawings and loose engravings. They were dispersed in two sales in 1891. With Bérard's bookplate. From the reference library of the Rapilly firm, the leading architectural booksellers and publishers in Paris from the 1840s until World War II. Rapilly was the expert for the 1891 sale of Bérard's books. ❧ Lugt, Marques, p. 14-"Bérard était le fondateur d'une importante collection de dessins et de gravures d'ornements, dont des parties figurèrent à plusieurs expositions…La collection avait été recueillie dès la première heure, au moment où les raretés dans ce domaine n'étaient point recherchées et se trouvaient à bon point compte. Elle résumait un travail de près de cinquante années. Il avait été conduit à la réunir par suite de son intérêt pour toutes les manifestations d'art. Il y trouvait en même temps, comme dit A. de Champeaux, des éléments comparatifs, qui facilitaient les nombreux travaux d'architecture dont il était chargé. Il s'en aida également pour la publication des ouvrages qu'il entreprit sur la serrurerie artistique et sur divers détails de la construction…M. Bérard possède aussi beaucoup de dessins d'ornements très rares et très importants…En résumé, il y a peu de cabinets aussi riches en ouvrages d'architecture et en dessins d'ornements.".

      London: John W. Parker and Son, 1860. First edition. Original brown wavy grain cloth with gilt lettering on spine, red-brown endsheets, advertisements. SUPERB ASSOCIATION COPY INSCRIBED ON THE TITLE PAGE BY PATMORE TO THOMAS CARLYLE ("Thomas Carlyle, Esq. | With the Writer's best Regards"), re-presented by Carlyle beneath,"To the Hon. Maud Stanley with many regards, T.C." Spine slightly torn, extremities rubbed. A most compelling presentation . From the "Carlyle Encyclopedia," He, and his first wife Emily, the model for "The Angel," were both well liked by the Carlyles. In 1847, before he had formed his friendship with Thomas Carlyle, Patmore listed him in a letter to a friend as one of his current dislikes..." He received a gracious reply, and the rest is history! A lovely history here presented. Very nice copy.

Green stitched wrs.,blind-stamped swastica design, title slip, rear covers mottled, tightly bound, the contents exceptionally clean, 30 double-page text + 2 last pages colophon, 11 illustrations, of which 4 are in color. This very unusual and famous work. It covers the early official and primary travels of Matsuura Takeshiro to Ezo [Hokkaido prior to being named "Hokkaido"] in 1859. . Matsuura executed his Shogunate appointed objective of exploring Ezo, and making a visual and written record of what he saw, the Ainu people and others he met on his travels. He wrote several works on that area, this example is one of those historic records. Matsuura was officially authorized by the Shogunate to name/rename areas he traveled in the Hokkaido area. Matsuura is the man responsible for changing the name of "Ezo" to be "Hokkaido." *** Per Bartlett, p.198-199: Bartlett gives KITA EZO YOSHI a variant English title: A FURTHER ACCOUNT OF NORTH EZO: TRIP TO DARUIKA AND THE OROKKO TRIBES. . "In the preface the author states that this book extract from the official report on the expedition to Karafuto [Sakhalin] in 30 volumes that was then presented to the Hokkaido Government Office. In June 1854 [a later edition of this title] the author parted from his companions to visit Daruika and the Orokko people and rejoined them in July after having had the experiences recounted in this book." . Again in Bartlett, on p.198 exhibit 68, figure 63 he shows the exact illustration found our copy of Matsuura being entertained by several Ainu peoples. . Bartlett states about this double-page illustration: "Japanese dignitary, presumably the author, visiting Ainu at an island touched during the voyage to Sakhalin. The bearded Ainu are offering gifts of fish and other food." See our website for a scan of this fascinating example. *** THE ELEVEN ILLUSTRATIONS: There are a total of ten woodblock illustrations in this book: a. Two double-page black, gray, shaded illustrations. b. Two color double-page illustrations. c. Three double-page black outline illustrations. d. Three single page black outline drawings/illustrations. *** CONDITION: The front covers and the title slip are quite clean. There is a bit of mild discoloration spots at upper 4 cm. of this part of the front cover. The title slip is excellent a bit dusty. See cover.jpg . The back covers are mottled, with several spots . Please see color scan spine.jpg posted to our website for more details. . Contents: The contents are excellent, very clean, no worming whatsoever. The color illustrations and line drawings are also excellent, no issue. . The book is firmly bound in its original threads. The book is enclosed in a more recent indigo-blue Chitsu folding case with bone clasps. *** WHO WAS MATSUURA Takeshiro [1818-1888]: "The author was an explorer who went as far north as Ezo [modern day Hokkaido before it was named "Hokkaido"]. He was later commissioned by the Shogunate to survey the topography of Hokkaido in 1885, and then appointed judge at Hakodate and concurrently secretary of the bureau that was established to give names to various parts of Hokkaido in 1868. He wrote many books on his travels, most noted of which is TOZAI EZO NIKKI: DIARY OF EAST AND WEST HOKKAIDO."

      London: John Parker & Son, 1860. First edition. Original brown wavy grain cloth with gilt lettering on spine, red-brown endsheets, advertisements. Superb ASSOCIATION COPY INSCRIBED ON THE TITLE PAGE TO DANTE GABRIEL ROSSETTI ("D.G. Rossetti, Esq. | With the author's kind regards"). Patmore's association and friendship with Dante Gabriel Rossetti is well-documented, and the latter introduced Patmore to WIlliam Holman Hunt, drawing him closer to the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood for which Rossetti was a founding member. As well, Patmore contributed a poem, "The Seasons," to the GERM, in 1850, the seminal vehicle for the PRB. Book restrengtheded at some point with added prelims, original red-brown endsheets bound in. A stunning association copy indeed.

        A Tale of Two Cities.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1860. First edition, first issue of one of Dickens' most enduring work, with p. 213 misnumbered "113," the signature mark "b" at the foot of the plate list, and the misspelling "affetcionately" on line 12, p. 134. Octavo, bound in three quarters contemporary calf over marbled boards, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, marbled endpapers. Sixteen plates after H.K. Browne including frontispiece and title vignette. In near fine condition with light rubbing and wear, bookplate. An exceptional example of this Dickens classic. The most famous and possibly the most popular of Dickens's novels, A Tale of Two Cities shows a master of dramatic narrative extracting gold from the ore of history. If the bloody tableau of the French Revolution were not in itself sufficient for a dozen novels, Dickens added to it a professional resurrectionist, an authentic ogress, and an antihero as convincingly flawed as any in modern literature. Here, too, are all of Dickens's recurring themes -- imprisonment, injustice, and cataclysmic violence, resurrection and the renunciation that makes renewal possible.
