        L'homme Qui rit.

      Tome premier [deuxième; troisième; quatrième]. Paris, Librairie Internationale, 15, Boulevard Montmartre, A. Lacroix, Verboeckhoven & Ce, éditeurs, A Bruxelles, á Leipzig et á Livourne, 1869. Tous droits de traduction et de reproduction réservés. 4 Vols., Demy 8vo; each volume complete with half-title, and Table at end; pp.381+[i (blank)]; 307+[i (blank)]; 296; 384; [?]Edwardian half brown fine-morocco cloth ruled and lettered gilt on spine, black fine-morocco paper covered sides; marbled edges. Slight wear to corners of boards and small chips to cloth at head of spines; small Dewey number in white at tail of each spine, and library de-accession stamp on verso of each title-page; some pencilled scoring and numerous notes in first two volumes (v. note); a very little scattered foxing, and small stains to 9:8 of volume one and 10:1 of volume three, the latter just touching next, and 15:1 in the same volume opened a trifle roughly at top edge; in general a nice copy in a serviceable but unlovely binding. From the library of Lytton Strachey, with his small bookplate on each front paste-down and below it a label reading: "Reading University Library. From the collection of Mr. James Strachey. Presented by Mrs. Strachey", the latter two names partly obliterated in black ink. The set was evidently rebound, presumably for Lytton, but at some point after he had read it (as far as he got!) as some of the pencilled notes are slightly cropped. They are scattered throughout volume one and the first seventy-eight pages of volume two, after which, possibly, exasperation took over and he gave up. They are written in French and English, and range in extent from a simple proofing mark, through comments such as 'Oh, V.H!' and 'Do crows fly at night?' to passages of more than fifty words, for the most part criticising Hugo's poor knowledge of English terminology, history, and customs, or, at times, his thought, and they appear, in all, on some seventeen pages. Carteret I, 423. Vicaire IV 341. Talvart-Place IX n.67. The issue with the joint Paris/Brussels imprint; there was also an issue just with the Brussels imprint. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

        Alice's Adventures In Wonderland.

      Boston: Lee and Shepard, 1869. First edition printed in America of the author's classic work. Octavo, original red cloth, all edges gilt, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, triple gilt ruled to the front and rear panels. Illustrated by John Tenniel, text illustrated. In near fine condition, bookplates. An exceptional example. Alice's Adventures were "born on a golden afternoon" in July 1862, when the Rev. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll) took the three small daughters of Dean Liddell of Christ Church on a boating trip up the Isis. Carroll delighted the three children by relating Alice's adventures, and eventually promised his favorite among the three, Alice Liddell, to write the story down for her. Through the Looking-Glass can be seen as a mirror image of the Alice's Adventures. For example, the latter begins outdoors in the warmth of May 4 and uses the imagery of playing cards, while the former begins indoors on a snowy, cold November 4 and uses the imagery of chess. "The two Alice books completed the reinstatement of the imagination, so long disapproved of by the opponents of fairy stories, to its proper place. ‘Alice is, in a word, a book of that extremely rare kind which will belong to all the generations to come until the language becomes obsolete'" (Carpenter & Prichard, 102).

        A Storm in the Rocky Mountains, Mt Rosalie' [by M.H. Long].

      Published by Thomas McLean Printed by the Kell Brothers 18.5 x 32.25in mount opening 1869 - Chromolithograph, laid down on backing board, with old mount, two tiny scratches in rock in top right, small indentation near initials in right bottom corner, and small associated flaws, This is another of Bierstadt's 'Great Pictures' completed by January 1866, a companion to 'Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak'. As his rival Frederic Church did, the format for a 'Great Picture' was to produce a large panoramic landscape and exhibit it to a wide public at a one picture touring exhibition, which was accompanied by explanatory brochures and promoted by reproductions. Even though privately owned it was exhibited at McLean's London gallery in 1867. In the same year, Bierstadt took it with 'Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak' to Osborne House to show Queen Victoria. They were both exhibited at McLean's in 1868 when the production of this chromolithograph was under way. These prints were sold laid down to emulate paintings. The surface even recreates the cracklure of oil paintings. The announcement of this chromolithograph with its companion was first made in January 1868 but they were not issued until autumn 1869. Accounts of their production vary one suggesting twenty stones were employed and another thirty.This print is a sumptuous reproduction of one of the finest early paintings to depict the American West. Commenting on these prints which were then being exhibited at Goupil's of New York, the 'Post' newspaper (4 Oct. 1869) wrote 'They are unquestionably the finest examples of chromolithographic art'.The original painting was purchased by the Englishman Thomas Kennard for $20,000. It is now in Brooklyn Museum. In 1863, Bierstadt visited Colorado, where he made studies for this picture. The mountain is named after Rosalie Osborne Ludlow who Bierstadt married in 1866. In 1869, when the picture was exhibited at the Paris salon Napoleon III awarded Bierstadt the Legion d'Honneur.Reference: ANDERSON, N. & FERBER, L.S. 'Albert Bierstadt Art & Enterprise' Exhibition Catalogue. Brooklyn Museum, 1991. This chromolithograph is discussed on pp. 274-275, figure 90, and illustrated in colour, Plate 79 on p. 292.

        Brother and Sister, sonnets by Marian Lewes.

      For Private Circulation only. 1869 [1888] - 15pp. Half title. Sewn as issued in orig. pale blue printed wrappers. A v.g. copy in green cloth portfolio. Baker & Ross B6.1. See Carter & Pollard pp191-193. This is the first printing, made some time in 1888. Analysis of both the paper and type show this could not have been printed as early as 1869, and is undoubtedly one of Thomas J. Wise's notorious forgeries. The pamphlet was first offered to the British Museum in October 1888, for the price of 3 guineas, and further copies were distributed in the years that followed. The sonnets were written by Eliot in 1869, but first appeared in print in The Legend of Jubal, first published in 1874. With accompanying hand-written notes on a Scribner's Bookstore envelope, by the bibliographer John Carter, in which he confirms the publication to be a forgery.

Music staves on each card; twelve face cards show amateur musicians singing and playing a variety of instruments. Cards are in nice shape; the box front and back are present, no sides or bottom.

"Select indiscriminately and place on the musicdesk, in the middle a 1, on the left-hand extremity a picture-card, and on the right a seven. Fill each of the two intervening spaces by any three cards taken also indiscriminately . . . . It will then be found that the nine cards placed together form two pieces of dance-music which can be played without difficulty." Provenance: Harrie A. Kenter collection, Amsterdam. The cards were first announced in Polybiblion: Universal Bibliographic Review, IV, 1869, p. 158. They are mentioned, though not by title, in Van Rensselaer (1912), p. 301 Exceptionally scarce.

        The History of England.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co.,, 1869–1871. From the accession of James the Second. 8 volumes, octavo (170 x 115 mm). Contemporary red calf, green labels lettered in gilt to spines, gilt decorations to spines in compartments, gilt frames to covers, marbled endpapers and edges. Minor rubbing to extremities, spines uniformly a little faded, top edges dust toned, a couple of small scratches to covers, tiny abrasion to front cover of vol. VI; an excellent set. An attractively bound set of Macaulay's history. "The first historical work deliberately designed to outsell the best-selling novel of the day, Macaulay's book immediately fulfilled its author's aspiration. His colourful style and stirring power of description secured for the History a success such as no historical work in the English language had had since Gibbon. Each volume sold about one hundred and fifty thousands copies within a month of its publication, and the numerous reprints and translations into almost every literary language have perpetuated Macaulay's ideas almost to this day" (PMM 328).

        American Journal of Numismatics 1866-1924 complete

      Boston & New York - Volumes 1-53 complete, bound in twenty-six, first 20 in contemporary (i.e. c1910) brown cloth, gilt spines, balance in recent brown cloth, green spine labels, all bindings sound and strong. A fine set. (Only several volumes of each binding are shown in the photo) Davis 21. No periodical or other body of work is as important to our understanding of American numismatics, especially during the second half of the nineteenth century. The original works by Crosby, his 1869 The United States Cents of 1793 (here with the first printing of the photographic plate), and extracts from The Early Coins of America, initially appeared in the Journal, as did Marvin¿s Masonic Medals, Low¿s Hard Times Tokens, Edgar Adams¿ The Private Gold Coinage of California, and Miller & Ryder¿s State Coinage of New England. Initiated by the A.N.A.S. as a monthly periodical that would incorporate the society¿s proceedings, the uncertain future faced by that organization forced control to be passed to the Boston Numismatic Society in 1870. Designed to be an annual rotation with publishing responsibilities shared among the various societies, the Journal remained in Boston for 38 years as a quarterly. In 1893 all rights were acquired by W. T. R. Marvin, who continued to edit and publish the work until 1908 when it was sold back to the A.N.S. During its Boston years, under the guidance of Colburn, Appleton, and Marvin, the Journal recorded for posterity American numismatic history in the form of society minutes, auction notices and results, book reviews, quips, barbs and bantering, as well as erudite original papers. When control returned to New York, an era had passed, and the Journal was well on its way to becoming a forum for monographs, largely on classical works, only. Concerns by authors, however, that their works would not receive critical attention if they shared covers with papers on other subjects led to its discontinuance, and the institution of the Numismatic Notes and Monographs series.

      1869. On offer here is an 1869 Wisden Cricketers Almanac in entirely original condition apart from the facsimile wrappers. 1869 is commonly regarded as the second scarcest Wisden after the 1875 edition. The copy on offer here has been recently fitted with facsimile wrappers which are in excellent, as new condition. The remainder of the book is entirely original. The title page has the odd very minor mark and the contents page has a little, very light foxing as does the last page - at page 120. Apart from this the contents are in absolutely immaculate, clean condition - original, unmarked and clean. A really excellent example of a very scarce year.

        PHANTASMAGORIA AND OTHER POEMS

      - CARROLL,LEWIS. PHANTASMAGORIA AND OTHER POEMS. London: Macmillan 1869. 8vo (5 x 7"), 202p., blue cloth with gilt decorations, all edges gilt. Except for light fraying to spine ends, this is in near Fine condition in a custom cloth clamshell box. THIS COPY IS INSCRIBED ON THE HALF-TITLE BY DODGSON TO THE ARTIST THOMAS HEAPHY THE YOUNGER. It reads: "T. Heaphy, Esq. With the author's kind regards, Jan. 1869." According to his diary, he sent out 28 copies on January 7, 1869 to his friends and family so presumably this is one of those copies. Thomas Heaphy the Younger was a well regarded artist whose name figures heavily in Dodgson's journal entries for late 1868 and 1869 and who appears sporadically in his letters. During this time Dodgson was negotiating the purchase of Heaphy's painting "Dreaming of Fairyland" in which the depiction of young girls appealed to him. This is a super association copy.
