He wrote extensively as an essayist and reviewer. His books on British history have been hailed as literary masterpieces. He was a member of the Babington family by virtue of his aunt's marriage to Thomas Babington.Sir George Otto Trevelyan, 2nd Baronet OM PC (1838-1928) was a British statesman and author. In a ministerial career stretching almost thirty years years, he was most notably twice Secretary for Scotland under William Ewart Gladstone and the Earl of Rosebery. He broke with Gladstone over the 1886 Irish Home Rule Bill, but after modifications were made to the bill he re-joined the Liberal Party shortly afterwards. Also a writer and historian, Trevelyan published The Life and Letters of Lord Macaulay, his maternal uncle, in 1876.The London bindery of W. Root & Son consistently turned-out excellent work, both on fine bindings as here, and on trade bindings and sets. Packer lists the firm in business in Red Lion Square in 1899-1901, and the December 1942 issue of The Rotarian notes with regret that W. Root had been bombed out (uprooted?) of their premises on Paternaster Row during the 1941 Blitz.

        Flore Ornementale: Essai sur la Composition de l'Ornement, Elements Tires de la Nature et Principes de Leur Application

      Paris: Dunod, 1876. Hardcover. Good+ (Former library book with ink stamps and perforated stamps, including on title page. Library ink stamp on every plate. Mild foxing throughout, Plate 142 being the worst.). Ruprich-Robert; Cl. Sauvageot (engraver). Black buckram (a library rebinding). 146 pp + plates. 108 figures in text (3 within introduction and 105 within main chapters) plus 152 full page BW plates (including title plate). Signed by Ruprich-Robert. Victor-Marie-Charles Ruprich-Robert (1820-1887) was a French architect, designer and architectural historian. This book was the culmination of the twenty years' teaching of ornamental composition at the Ecole gratuite de dessin de Paris (Paris Free School of Drawing). He would illustrate his courses by painting freehand examples, which were engraved for this book. The material is arranged in four parts: Leaves, Plants, Flowers, and Compositions. Exquisite detail in these plates. NOTE: All plates are numbered. Most were numbered at the time of engraving, just above the image. 25 in this volume, however, are numbered in pencil, either just above the image or at the bottom of the engraving page. Since this is a library binding, the collection could be a combination of two different engravings. The set, however, is complete and in order, and condition is consistent.

      Hi, I recently purchases a rebind in fabulous condition, inside the binding were 1876 through to 1878 but it was in such good condition I decided to split them out and had facsimile covers added to them hence, and to keep them together ... This lot is a set of three Original Wisdens 1876 , 1877 and 1878 , Paperbacks with facsimile spines and covers in very good condition. The books are in very good condition, the pages are very clean and pretty much unmarked. There is a touch of foxing to the 1877 but it is only slight and to the odd page, the other two have minimal foxing. Although it used to be rebound there is not much trimming with nice margins. A fabulous set of 3 early Wisdens at a great price.

They should get to me right away so I can prepare with ease... I will need at least twenty days so that the examination would not be too superficial, but rather, loving."

        Autograph letter signed ("R. F. Burton"). Trieste, Consulate, 19. VI. 1876.

      1876. 3 pp. Small 8vo. On his blue notepaper with his Arabic heading. To the publisher and author George Bentley (1828-95), stating that he has "polished up Scinde, now 'Sind' or the Unhappy Valley, that is I have almost re-written it. As your late father was the first to publish it I think it only fair to offer it to you. The augmentations will fatten the volumes, and I have a lot of photographs and old sketches (caricatures of Sir Charles Napier etc.etc.) which I think might be introduced with advantage, but are you inclined so to do? [...]". He says he will wait, "before giving the last touches to the book and then send it [...] When you receive it you will make up your mind and let me know [...] I shall probably be at Trieste for some time, but residence is always doubtful under the F.O. After Iceland, 6 months in India & Sind a little rest is of course desirable, to get it however is the difficulty [...]". - Burton brought Napier much detailed information on wife killing and bizarre reality although Napier had signed the death warrants of several rich convicted murderers. Napier was impressed by Burton's reports and would accept counsel from him. Burton, for example, suggested that Napier continue the practice of killing a murderer by shooting him out of a cannon rather than hanging, as a lack of proper burial would mean the Muslim would never reach paradise. Napier was disturbed by reports of homosexuality amongst the Muslims. Certain reports spoke of male brothels in Karachi which were corrupting the troops, and Napier asked Burton to investigate. Burton agreed to do this on the "express condition that my report should not be forwarded to the Bombay Government, from whom supporters of the Conqueror's policy could expect scant favour, justice, or mercy."

        The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.

      London: John Murray,, 1876. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt and with decorative band at head and foot, blind-tooled rules and decorations to boards, brown endpapers. With fold-out diagram. Bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown. Some rubbing to extremities, front hinge starting but text block sound, some light foxing to contents. A very good copy. Sixth edition, eighteenth thousand; the first issue of the final definitive text. This issue was of 1,250 copies only, as small as any, "and is remarkably hard to come by" (Freeman). There are only slight corrections from the 1872 text but they are undoubtedly those of Darwin himself. Stereos of this issue were used for the very many issues which followed, from 1878 to 1929. Modern reprints of the Origin usually state that they are based on the sixth edition of 1872, but they are actually based on this of 1876.

Pages, 215/6, 243/4 & 245/6 with tiny pieces (1/4 x 1/8 inch max) torn away from upper corner. Some expert and very small repairs to inner hinges, some light stains to rear endpapers just affecting last two blank fly-leaves.

Head and tail of spine and corners expertly and almost invisibly strengthened, small abrasion with loss of cloth (1/8 inch square) on rear cover, gilt on spine a little dull. Neat early ink presentation inscription on the front free endpaper, dated Dec 25th/76. Even with the aforementioned issues this is still an exceptional copy of the very rare first issue of this classic tale. Housed in a quarter black morocco clamshell case.?Turning away from the adult corruption and humbuggery which he had satirized in The Gilded Age, Mark Twain refreshed his spirit in this semi-autobiographical story of boyhood. The irresponsibility, the love of odd adventure, and the sense of natural justice as opposed to the village code, which characterize the heroes of this book and its sequel Huckleberry Finn, presented a sharp contrast to the Sunday School or rags-to-riches literature which was then the common fare doled out to children. For once, the natural rights of the small boy were set forth by a great writer who remembered his own childhood, when he had indeed inveigled some boys into whitewashing a fence for him, given pain-killer to his cat, teased his brother unmercifully, and continually sharpened his wits in devising ways of escaping punishment. These books let fresh air into the minds of parents who had shut the door on their own childhood, and they will be classics the world over as long as there are boys? (Grolier, 100 American).?The book was published during December 1876 although application for copyright had been made as early as July 21, 1875; copies were not received for entry at the Library of Congress until January 2, 1877. The [first] English edition [published by Chatto & Windus, London] was published on June 9, 1876, about six months before the American edition was put on sale? (Peter Parley to Penrod).BAL 3369.

Ich hatte meinen kleinen Kreise, zu welchem Frau Marie Seebach, Herr von Heidler, Gesandschafts-Secretär der österreichischen Legation und einige Herren gehörten die vor Kurzem in Wien gewesen waren, eine eben fertig gewordene Übersetzung von Coppée's Luthier de Crémone vorgelesen und nach deren Beendigung geäußert ich wolle sie der hiesigen Theater Intendanz zur Aufführung vorschlagen. Da rief Frau Seebach, und alle genannten stimmten ihr bei: Lieber doch in Wien! Herr Lewinski würde den Filippo geben, wie kein anderer in Deutschland! Hier in Dresden ist keiner der die Rolle übernehmen könnte [...]". Ich weiß das das Stück seinen Erfolg auf dem theatre francois ganz vorzüglich dem vortrefflichen Spiel des Schauspielers Coquelin verdankt, und weiß noch gewisser, dass Sie es eben so zur Geltung bringen würden, wie Jener [...]". - Das Stück des französischen Schriftstellers François Edouard Joachim Coppée (1842-1908) war im selben Jahr erschienen; die erwähnte Übersetzung von Wolf Graf Baudissin erschien im Jahr darauf unter dem Titel 'Der Geigenmacher von Cremona'.

        The Hunting of the Snark: An Agony in Eight Fits

      MacMillan and Co., Limited, London - 1876, 1st edition, 1st printing. () Very good. xi, 83 [1]. 12mo. Original buff pictorial cloth with black illustrations and lettering stamped to both boards and spine. Some minor defects to the hinges have been professionally restored. Corners a bit bumped. Black endpapers. All edges gilt. A small (5" X 3"), two page pamphlet by Lewis Carroll, entitled "An Easter Greeting to Every Child Who Loves 'Alice'" from 1876 has been tipped in to the backside of the frontis. Black and white illustrations by Henry Holiday--9 plates in total, including the frontispiece, with original tissue guards. First issue error of "baker" on page 83. Internally clean and an overall near fine copy. A wonderfully well preserved copy of this bizarre book, made especially scarce by the pamphlet tipped in. This book is a fantastical poem involving a strange crew of tradesmen and a beaver as they set off on a journey to find "the snark". The illustrations by Holiday, as well as the highly decorative binding, greatly compliment this truly strange and lovely little book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Als Sie damals im Frühling bei uns waren und wir einen heitren Tag erlebten, wartete ich einige Tage auf ein Lebenszeichen von Ihnen und da ein solches nicht kam, schrieb ich einen 6 oder 8 Seiten langen Brief an Sie noch ganz unter dem Eindruck des Wohlbehagens den Sie auf mich und meine bessere Haelfte gemacht [...]".

In a ministerial career stretching almost thirty years years, he was most notably twice Secretary for Scotland under William Ewart Gladstone and the Earl of Rosebery.

      1876. 3 pp. Small 8vo. To the publisher and author George Bentley (1828-95), complaining that his "letter has certainly miscarried. I accept the conditions provided we print at once [...]". He asks for an "agreement to settle at the end of six months or a year and to allow me a dozen copies for friends. Could we manage to print without destroying the two old volumes. Of course you can take them to pieces and I will have them rebound when you have done with them [...]". He continues, "For corrections a single revise will suffice. Kindly let me have proofs in duplicate accompanied by the manuscript - which saves time [...]." He asks his opinion on illustration, and repeats that he has sketches and photographs suggesting that "perhaps the best way would be to prefix one to each volume, say Sir Charles Napier to vol. I and the photo of a Sindi girl to vol. 2 [...]". He offers to send them off at once if it suits.
