Provenance: Latimer Clark.Ayrton, a pupil of Sir William Thomson (later Lord Kelvin), was a noted physicist, electrical engineer, inventor, and technical educator; his wife was the physicist Hertha Ayrton, best known for her investigations of the electric arc and of sand ripples. For five years Ayrton served as professor of physics and telegraphy at the Imperial Engineering College in Tokyo, Japan (at one time the world's largest technical university), where he established the first laboratory in Japan for teaching applied electricity.

      London Smith Elder and Co 1873 - NEW EDITION 1873, 3 volumes, complete set, LIMITED TO 1500 COPIES SIGNED BY RUSKIN AT THE END OF THE PREFACE, approximately 260 x 170 mm, 10¼ x 6¾, 53 plates by the author, a few in colour, some tinted, many text illustrations, pages: xxi, (1), 400; vi, (2), 394; (4), 362, bound in original publisher's full fine ribbed brown cloth, wide embossed foliar borders to covers, gilt peacocks vignette to centre of covers, spine with embossed foliar decoration, gilt lettering, and gilt Venetian lion vignette at head, top edges gilt, mid brown endpapers. Spines of Volumes I and II slightly worn with tiny nicks to cloth, light spotting to lower third of spine on Volume I, less on the other 2 volumes, upper cover of Volume II slightly faded at edges of upper cover, small nick to lower hinge of Volume II neatly stuck down, endpapers, some paper guards and one or 2 black and white plates slightly foxed in all volumes, front endpapers stained, prelims and early pages slightly foxed, occasional slight foxing throughout in Volume II, front inner paper hinge partly split, light foxing to prelims and very occasionally throughout, many pages unopened in Volume III. A very good clean tight set. Ruskin was the greatest British art critic and social commentator of the Victorian Age. His third great work of criticism, The Stones of Venice (1851-53), maintained that the Gothic architecture of Venice reflected national and domestic virtue, while Venetian Renaissance architecture mirrored corruption. He examines Venice's Byzantine, Gothic and Renaissance periods and provides a general history of the city combined with the detailed study of the architecture of those periods. 'there has never been more than one opinion about the noble eloquence and haunting beauty of the descriptive passages, or about the permanent value of his work among the earlier masters of Venetian painting and sculpture and the earlier school of Venetian architecture.' (DNB). In his preface Ruskin declares that this new edition has had to be limited to 1500 copies because of the state of the old plates and that he has signed every copy 'certifying it as containing the best states of the old plates now procurable'. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST. A heavy set which will require extra postage. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        UNDER THE GREENWOOD TREE (Superb Copy of the American First Edition, First Issue in Original Cloth)

      New York: Holt & Williams, 1873. Hardy, Thomas. UNDER THE GREENWOOD TREE. New York: Holt & Williams, 1873. First American Edition, first issue, in the original publisher's cream cloth decorated in black. This is a NEAR FINE copy, its cloth a trifle age-toned, but with scarcely any wear and rare thus. Under The Greenwood Tree was Hardy's second novel (initially published in two volumes in London in June 1872) but his first novel to be published in the United States. This particular copy has the required first state of both title page and binding, listing its publisher as Holt & Williams rather than just Holt; it also has the earliest endpaper ads dated May 10, 1873. The best example of this fragile book we've seen in over thirty years. In a new custom slipcase.. First American Edition. Fine.
