Fine condition.<br /><br />In full, <I>“I was very sorry to hear of the illness of Capt Cockcroft who has been very kind to my brothers widow at Bedford. I hope sincerely that he is restored again to health. I hope Mrs Bailey is not the worse for her nursing, how wearisome this is, when you hear of some one being ill, how much is composed in the remark, the hopes and fears & long weary nights of watching. Oh, I hope it may not come on me like that. I would like one minute not more and no nursing at all. I hope it will come so to me, depend on it my dear Bailey. God is working out a problem of love, the fleshy corrupt nature leaves us at the grave & we slough it off as it were. every night you undress is a symbol of your death, you put off your clothes and enter into piece for the most part, and so it will be with death. We out off our shrouds which bear us down and which cannot enter the true rest. Thanks for the tracing of Bender it will do just first rate I have received the maps of the Caucasus & paid Williams & Noregate for them. MacDougal wrote to me, he likes you & Wilson. he is a nice fellow. Kind regards to Mrs Bailey & deeply sympathizing with you both.”</I><br /><br />In October 1871, Charles G.

GAUTIER, Théophile;
France, Imprimerie Particulière [Bruxelles, Poulet-Malassis], 1873 In-8 de (3) ff., 82pp., (1) f., demi-maroquin marine à coins, dos à nerfs, tête dorée, non rogné (Pagnant). Édition originale, publiée clandestinement par Poulet-Malassis à partir de pièces collectées par lui. Tirage limité à 162 exemplaires; celui-ci un des 150 sur Hollande, venant après 12 Chine. En frontispice, gravé à l'eau-forte par H. Valentin et tiré sur Chine, un "portrait singulier" de Gautier: choisi en souvenir du temps où son apparence scandalisait, il s'agit en fait de la réduction d'un portrait-charge de Benjamin Roubaud publié en 1838 dans le Panthéon charivarique. S'y ajoute une double-planche gravée: la partition du chef d'œuvre lyrique que constitue La Mort, l'apparition et les obsèques du capitaine morpion. Comme son titre l'indique, ce recueil rassemble des œuvres de Gautier qui, si elles ne dérogent pas à son habituelle perfection dans la forme, "font désordre". Le désordre -rappelons-nous le temps des Jeunes-France et de la bataille d'Hernani- ne constitua-t-il pas, en un sens, la première vocation du "poète impeccable" loué par Baudelaire? Une autobiographie en tête du volume offre au poète l'occasion de s'en expliquer, soudain proche et familier. Exemplaire parfaitement établi à l'époque par Pagnant. De la bibliothèque Jolly-Bavoillot avec ex-libris: le bibliophile américain Charles Joly-Bavoillot, correspondant de Jules Janin, avait constitué une très belle bibliothèque romantique, vendue en 1896. Il n'est pas surprenant de voir son choix de relieur s'être porté sur Édouard Pagnan … [Click Below for Full Description]

ELIOT, George.
Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1873 - 4 volumes, octavo. Original green cloth, spines lettered in gilt, decorative border in black to covers, brown coated endpapers. Contemporary ownership inscription to half-title of vol. I. Spines rolled and slightly darkened, joints slightly tender with slight splitting to rear joint of vol. I, light rubbing to covers, slight abrasion to front hinge of vol. I, light foxing to edges, slight foxing to preliminary and final leaves. An excellent set. Second edition in book form. Middlemarch, Eliot's sixth novel, was first published in 1871-2. The book's gestation had been problematic, being slow in composition and growing too long for the traditional three-decker format. It was Lewes who suggested to Blackwood that, on the model of Victor Hugo's Les Misérables, it should be serialized in eight parts at two-monthly intervals, and published in book form in four volumes. Despite mixed contemporary reviews, it has since become Eliot's most famous work and is widely recognised as one of the great literary achievements of the 19th century. As a copy in original cloth and excellent condition, the set represents an attractive offering for collectors who do not have the five figure sum needs to purchase the first edition.
