        Fighting the Sea

      circa, 1880. Ink sketch, 195 x 160mm, signed lower left; with manuscript caption at base, mounted and framed. This is the original drawing for the finished watercolour, {i A Tug Saving a Dismasted Smack at the Edge of Scroby Sands, Yarmouth,} painted in 1885 for Sir Edward Cecil Guiness. Interestingly, this drawing was reproduced as an illustration in the catalogue of the {i Royal Society of Painters in Watercolour }in{i }1884. Until recent times the work was in the family of the artist Oswald Brierly, a leading marine painter who had studied naval architecture. Brierly learned his artistic skills at Henry Sass's Academy, a private drawing school in Bloomsbury "a preparatory school" for the Royal Academy and the British Institution, other students included Rossetti, Millais and Edward Lear. After a spell in Plymouth developing naval skills, Brierly sailed with several expeditions including the {i Rattlesnake }voyage on a survey of the Barrier Reef, and with Benjamin Boyd on the {i Wanderer.} He subsequently wrote, with Rev. John Milner, the narrative published as {i Cruise of the Galatea} (London, 1869). In 1874 Brierly was made marine painter to Queen Victoria. A second Brierly sketch is attached to back of this one. {i 'Barges used to take out the stones during construction of the breakwater at Plymouth OWB'}.

Freud&#39;s only major non-scientific publication was a translation of four essays by John Stuart Mill, forming the twelfth volume of Gomperz&#39;s edition of the collected writings in German. The task "was especially congenial work, since [Freud] was specially gifted as a translator. Instead of laboriously transcribing from the foreign language, idioms and all, he would read a passage, close the book and consider how a German writer would have clothed the same thoughts--a method not very usual among translators" (Jones, Freud, I, p. 61).

        Album of Color Photographs of Egypt

      Bolt-bound flexible leather. Oblong quarto. Fifteen large (approximately 8" x 10.5") color photographs of Egypt mounted on card leaves. Impressed captions in French at the base of each image. Undated, but probably circa 1880. The corners of a few images are torn or weakened where the images are affixed but all are still attached, and unfaded, and in otherwise reasonably fine condition. The extremities of the binding rubbed with some chipping and wear, but sound and very good. Subjects include views and street scenes of Cairo, boats, pyramids, the Sphinx, and other monuments. The images, although probably commercially created for the tourist market, are unusually fresh and bright. .

        Papaveri versi di Edoardo Scarfoglio

      Carabba - DE ARCANGELIS, Lanciano 1880 - In copertina CASALBORDINO PRESSO NICOLA DE ARCANGELIS, 1880 Al frontespizio LANCIANO PRESSO ROCCO CARABBA, 1880 In 16°(17 x 10); pagine (2)+102+(2). Brossura editoriale con impressa al piatto superiore la Marca Tipografica di Nicola De Arcangelis, dorso con titolo e autore, il tutto ben conservato. Carte interne bianche e senza difetti Opera di difficile reperibilità. Condizioni Ottime Opera prima molto rara, nata dall'incontro tra alcune delle principali figure della cultura abruzzese dell'epoca. Edoardo Scarfoglio (Paganica, 1860 - Napoli 1917), scrittore e giornalista (fondò il Corriere di Roma, il Corriere di Napoli, e Il Mattino, nel quale sostenne i lavoratori contro il governo durante la "guerra del pane", e fu costretto a fuggire in Svizzera), pubblicò questa raccolta di poesie appena ventenne, ritornato in Abruzzo da Roma, dove era andato per diplomarsi, in seguito alle difficoltà avute nelle scuole di Chieti. Amico di Giulio Salvadori e di G. D'annunzio, di indole irrequieta, sposò Matilde Serao nel 1885 (il matrimonio finì nel 1904, dopo molte vicissitudini, tra le quali è celebre il suicidio di una cantante francese, amante dello scrittore, di fronte alla porta di casa Scarfoglio). Si dedicò con passione all'attività di giornalista, nonostante l'insuccesso economico delle sue iniziative editoriali e le continue difficoltà finanziarie che ne derivarono. Nicola de Arcangelis (1863 - 1933), promotore della rinascita di una cultura regionale, figura eccezionale di tipografo-editore coraggioso, ancora in gran parte da scoprire, aveva solo 17 anni quando partecipò alla pubblicazione di questa raccolta poetica. Rocco Sebastiano Nicola Carabba (Lanciano 1854 - 1924) già all'età di 14 anni lavorava in una Tipografia, dove un parente prelato lo aveva introdotto per aiutare la famiglia in grave difficoltà in seguito all'uccisione del padre ad opera di briganti. Si mise in proprio nel 1876, dopo la nascita del primo figlio, acquistando un torchio grazie al prestito di qualche parente benestante. In pochissimo tempo l'editore-tipografo fu noto in tutta Italia ed apprezzato e stimato dai principali personaggi della cultura dell'epoca, da Scarfoglio a D'Annunzio, alal Serao, a Slataper, Pirandello.

      George Routledge and Sons, George Routledge and Sons 1880 - A Collection Of Picture Books bound together as two volumes. Illustrated by Randolph Caldecott and published by George Routledge and Sons in 1880. First Editions. Size of Volume 1: 8 x 9 inches. Size of Volume 2: 9 1/2 by 8 inches (landscape). Page Number. Book 1: 276. Book 2: 192. Hardcover volumes half bound in maroon leather with marbled boards, gilt lettering and gilt end blocks. Within, in Volume 1: An engraved image of Randolph Caldecott and his obituary taken, it would appear, from a newspaper article. Then: The House That Jack Built, The Diverting History of John Gilpin, The Mad Dog, The Babes in the Wood, The Three Jovial Huntsmen, Sing a Song of Sixpence, The Queen of Hearts and Farmer Boy. In Volume 2: The Milkmaid, Hey Diddle Diddle, and Baby Bunting, A Frog he Would A-wooing Go, The Fox Jumps Over The Parson's Gate, Come Lasses and Lads, Ride a Cock Horse, An Elegy of The Glory on Her Sex, Mrs Mary Blaze, by Oliver Goldsmith, and The Great Panjandrum. On the cover of each is written " R. Caldecott's Picture Books", plus the publisher's name within a decorative scroll, and the price which is "One Shilling". Poems in book 1 are 31 pages in length and have eight or nine full colour images, the others pages being decorated with sepia coloured images . Poems in Book 2 are shorter, being 24 pages long, and have seven colour illustrations to each. The Diverting History of John Gilpin has two double page spreads that fold out to show hunting images that are slightly larger than the spread of both pages. The pictures are engraved, after original designs by the author, by Edmund Evans, considered to be the finest wood engraver of his time. Single editions of these poems had the engraver and printer's name, and 'Raquet Court, Fleet Street' written on the bottom of the back page; but this page, which also had advertisements on it, would appear to have been removed, perhaps to give integrity to the collection as a whole. Condition: The bindings of each volume are in fair condition being a little bumped and worn at the edges, and having cracks to the top of both front and back of their spines. The front end paper of volume two is gutter cracked. The bindings remain tight however and the gilding to the edges is bright. There is foxing to the end papers but none to the pages within. Pages within both volumes show signs of thumbing, and there are small tears, little marks, and points where pages have been slightly folded throughout both volumes; but in the main all pages remain clean and bright and this damage, being to the periphery of pages, does not affect any of the images. The cover page of Humpty Dumpty is missing however, and paper has transfered from the page opposite onto the cover page of The Queen of Hearts. Both books have an inscription in pencil, dated 1930's, within the front cover. Should you require a more detailed condition report , or more photographs please be in contact and I will gladly supply them. These are heavy books, each weighing a kilo, therefore extra postage will be necessary. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
