        The Small House at Allington.

      London: Smith, Elder & Co.,, 1864. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green vermiculated cloth, spines lettered in gilt with elaborate design of crossed croquet-mallets with interstitial oak-leaves gilt, floral panel-stamp to covers with central motif of titles and floral sprays enclosing chicken-coop vignette gilt to fronts, brown-coated endpapers with publisher's advertisements printed on pastedowns. Housed in a custom morocco-backed green cloth slipcase and chemise. Wood-engraved frontispiece with tissue-guard and 8 similar plates to each volume, all by John Everett Millais. Spines gently rolled and a little rubbed at head and foot, corners bumped, small portion of rubbing towards upper outer corner of vol. I front board, very small indentation to head of front board vol. II, inner hinges sometime neatly reinforced, very light spotting largely restricted to front- and endmatter. An excellent copy. First edition, from the library of Walter E. Smith, the pre-eminent modern bibliographer of 19th-century fiction and author of Anthony Trollope: A Bibliography of his First American Editions, with his ownership inscription in pencil to the initial blank of the first volume. Trollope's "supreme work of art" (Hennessy) was originally serialised in the Cornhill Magazine from September 1862 to April 1864, and published in book form by Smith, Elder in March. It was the author's third novel to illustrated by Millais, after Framley Parsonage and Orley Farm. Having provided the illustrations for Phineas Finn (1867-1869), Millais "more or less refused to do any more … - because, no doubt, he was becoming more and more well-paid and fashionable as a portrait painter … [Nevertheless,] in his biography Trollope writes of Millais in the highest terms, declaring that unlike some opinionated illustrators … [he] simply wished 'to promote the views of the writer'" (ibid.) A particularly handsome example of the scarce original cloth.

        Ancient Syriac documents relative to the earliest establishment of Christianity in Edessa and the neighbouring countries from the year after our Lord's ascension to the beginning of the fourth century.

      London, Williams and Norgate, 1864. - Folio (232 x 295 mm). (2), XIV, 196, 112 pp. Contemp. blindstamped cloth with giltstamped title to spine. First edition. - In 1837, Cureton (1808-64), assistant keeper of manuscripts in the British Museum and the only oriental scholar in the department, was commissioned to prepare a catalogue of the Arabic manuscripts, the first part of which appeared in 1846. "But a new study had already engaged Cureton's attention. During his official occupation at the British Museum immense additions had been made to the collection of Syriac manuscripts. When he entered the department these numbered about eighty; but the accession of numerous manuscripts of the highest importance from the Nitrian monasteries, which were purchased and brought over partly by the mediation of Dr. Tattam in 1841 and 1843, raised the total to nearly six hundred. Cureton, who knew nothing of Syriac when he came to the department, set himself zealously to work to conquer the not very serious difficulties of the language, and to set in order and classify the new acquisitions from the Nitrian valley. His labours while drawing up an outline catalogue were amply rewarded by the discovery of many manuscripts of the highest interest" (DNB). The present work was published, after his death following a railway accident, by William Wright (1830-89). - Occasional slight foxing; on the whole an excellent, unusually wide-margined copy. From the library of the Ducs de Luynes at the Château de Dampierre: their bookplate reproducing the arms of Charles Marie d'Albert de Luynes (1783-1839), 7th Duc de Luynes, on pastedown.

        Check / Cheque Accomplished and Signed

      1864. Payable to "Mr Curtis." In the amount of 2 pounds 11 shillings. London: Messrs. Coutts & Compy., 4 May 1864. The only "Mr. Curtis" with whom Dickens is known to have corresponded was George William Curtis, the American writer and orator who, in 1864 (the year of this cheque) was the new editor of Harper's Weekly and Harper's New Monthly Magazine. In fact, it was the month following this cheque that OUR MUTUAL FRIEND began American serialization in Harper's New Monthly Magazine. (At the farewell dinner for Dickens in New York City, at the end of his 1868 American tour, it would be Curtis who would deliver the oration of the evening; Forster, in his biography of Dickens, notes that "visitors from America, among them George William Curtis, had always a grateful reception" in the Dickens household.)~In any case, the cheque, exhibiting a grand example of Dickens's signature, is in fine condition -- archivally inset into an acid-free paper frame.

        Picturesque Garden Plans. A Practical Guide to the Laying-out, Ornamentation, and Arrangement of Villa Gardens, Town Squares, & Open Spaces ... Adapted to English Gardens, etc

      London: Robert Hardwicke, 1864. Small folio. (13 x 8 inches). Contents loose as issued. [2], iv, [28]pp. 24 hand coloured double-page plates. Publisher's green cloth portfolio, upper cover titled in gilt, expertly rebacked to style. Housed in a green morocco backed box. Scarce English edition of Siebeck's garden designs, with hand coloured plates. Siebeck served as the city gardener at Leipzig, the gardener to Baron Carl von Hügeland and later became the chief gardener of Vienna, designing the Vienna City Park, among others. His colorful garden designs were first published in large folio in Leipzig in 1853 and 1856; the present reduced in scale English edition, as well as a French edition followed.Adapted for British gardens by well known landscape designer Joseph Newton. "But little apology is required for introducing this work to an English public. It has been done in the hope that the various plans which it contains may be the means of improving, not only the villa residences of our wealthy citizens and others, but also our public squares and town inclosures ... The credit of the designs belongs to Dr. Siebeck, who has applied them to the improvement of villa gardens of from a quarter of an acre to four acres in extent in the suburbs of Vienna" (Preface).

As it is well known the early Britons possessed many articles of gold, particularly Torques, now of the value of £40, and upwards, Armlets and Fibulas of the same metal, with other reliques; - How did the early natives become possessed of such valuables? Was it by barter with the Phoenicians, with whom the most part of their commerce was carried on with tin, cattle, raw hides, and such other articles as they could produce. Six or seven Torques have been discovered in Norfolk, and the large hoard of the silver coins of the Iceni, amounting to three of four hundred pounds, at Weston, in this county, tends to show that a considerable quantity of the precious metals was known at this early period. How, and by what mode of traffic were these valuables obtained? G. J.'

        Street music in the Metropolis. Correspondence and observations on the existing law, and proposed amendments

      London: John Murray. 1864. 8vo., viii + 120pp., including the half-title, original maroon cloth gilt. A fine presentation copy, from the 19th century library of Edward Strutt, Lord Belper*, with his signature, and inscribed 'with the author's* compliments'.> First edition: scarce. Street musicians in London have long been regarded as a nuisance by both residents and by visitors. 'By 1850 Mayhew recorded more than 250 ballad singers in London, and even more street instrumentalists, including hurdy-gurdy, bagpipes, violin and wind players. From the Continent came others, including brass bands from Germany, and from Italy, mechanical organs mounted on a cart. Whilst these undoubtedly attracted a meagre living from public support, many Londoners considered street musicians a nuisance, both as beggars and as producers of unwelcome noise to disturb the peace. Early in Queen Victoria's reign, London householders were given power to require street musicians to withdraw on 'grounds of illness or other reasonable cause', but this was not a sufficient control for M.T. Bass, MP who objected in particular to German bands and organ-grinders, probably because they were louder than most. In 1864 he introduced a Metropolitan Police Act which had the support of a large number of writers, including Dickens and Tennyson, whose work was allegedly disturbed by passing street-musicians. Some of these were thought to annoy purposely by playing out of tune, to extract money in return for silence on their departure. The 1864 Act strengthened the grounds upon which a complainant could make a charge, but required the complaint to be made in person at a police station. Clearly this Act did not deter performers, for the 1880 the Musical Times> records the formation of a Society for the Regulation of Street Music and of Street Musicians.' [Weinreb and Hibbert, The London Encyclopaedia,> pp. 838-9]. * Lord Belper (1801-1880), politician, lawyer and student of social and economic questions, 'became close to Jeremy Bentham and to James and John Stuart Mill, and under their influence his political views took shape'. [E.I. Carlyle, rev. Matthew Lee in ODNB]. Michael Bass himself was a very rich brewing magnate.
