        Songs of Springtide

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1880. First edition. 8vo. 135, [32, ads, dated April. 1880] pp. Original blue cloth. A very good copy . Inscribed "To the Rev. Alexander B. Grosart with the best reagrds of/Algernon Swinburne/ May 1880." "Grosart, Alexander Balloch (1827-1899), literary scholar and theologian...Grosart's reputation was as a great Elizabethan and Jacobean scholar. He reprinted thirty-nine volumes under the general title of the Fuller Worthies Library (1868-76), including authors such as Donne, Herbert, and Crashaw. This was followed by eighteen volumes of another series entitled Occasional Issues of Unique and very Rare Books (1875-83), which was privately printed. This series, like the others, included a list of the subscribers to each volume, alphabetically and democratically arranged, and found among these lists were such well-known names as Edmund Gosse, George Saintsbury, A. C. Swinburne, H. H. Furness, F. S. Palgrave, and Henry Morley....Grosart reprinted and edited volumes for the Chetham Society, for the Roxburghe Club, and for the Camden Society, in addition to a number of volumes not associated with any series or society. One estimate puts the total number of volumes he reprinted and/or edited at 300. He also added to his editions of the works of the puritan divines a small number of religious publications. And he was himself the author of hymns and religious poems which were collected and published in 1890 under the title Songs of the Day and Night, or, Three Centuries of Original Hymns. Possibly his proudest moment was when he was thanked by Tennyson for his dedication to the poet of his edition of Spenser (Letters of ... Tennyson, 3.298, 301-3)." (DNB)

        Fleurs, fruits et feuillages choisis de la flore et de la pomone de l&#39; Ile de Java peints d&#39;après nature par Madame Berthe Hoola van Nooten. Troisieme edition

      Brussels and Leipzig: Librairie Européenne C. Muquardt, 1880. Folio. Expertly bound to style in red half morocco over contemporary light green glazed paper-covered boards, titled in gilt on flat spine Third, and improved edition of this magnificent display of spectacular Javanese fruits and flowers, their bright colours ideally suited to the then new technique of chromolithography. &#39;Europeans who beheld these plants for the first time... could not but have been moved to wonder and amazement&#39; ("Oak Spring Flora") Berthe Hoola van Nooten (1840-1885), a latter-day Maria Sibylla Merian, produced the present work as a heroic response to circumstances which left her on Java, a widow in her early twenties with a family to support and little money, certainly not enough to pay for her family&#39;s passage home to Belgium. &#39;Aware of the vogue in Europe for exotic flora, she decided to take advantage of her enforced exile and put to use the skill at flower painting that she had no doubt acquired as a girl. Thus she prepared forty magnificent plates for Fleurs, fruits et feuillages choisis de l&#39;Ile de Java ... [van Nooten] was clearly a more than competent artist, for the splendid tropical plants, with their lush foliage, vividly coloured flowers and exotic fruit, have been depicted with great skill. She managed to accentuate the splendour of each species by adopting a style that combined great precision and clarity with a touch of neo-Baroque exuberance, revelling in the rich forms and colours of the tropics. The reader&#39;s eye is immediately captured by the dark leaves, shown furled or crumpled or partly nibbled away by insects, the delicately rendered details of the follicles and seeds, and the heavy clusters of flowers that cascade down the page. The excellent reproduction of the artist&#39;s drawings in the form of chromolithographs lends an added tactility to these striking images&#39; ( Oak Spring Flora ) The work consists of a lithographed dedication (in rhyme) to the Queen of the Netherlands. This is followed by a preface in which the author hints at the tragic personal circumstances which led her to seek a publisher for the work, and the forty plates, each of which is accompanied by detailed text in French and English giving a description as well as occasional information on the plants&#39; culinary, medical, religious and other uses. The plates depict a mixture of indigenous, naturalised and introduced plants and include shrubs, flowering trees and, perhaps the most striking of all, 16 portraits of plants with edible fruits: pomelo, rambutan, mangosteen, custard-apple, bread-fruit, mango, bananas, star-fruit and papaya amongst others. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 103; Landwehr 80; Nissen BBI 93; Oak Spring Flora 87; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 3025. (22 x 15 1/4 inches). Half-title, title, dedication to the Queen of the Netherlands and foreword in French, parallel text in French and English. 40 chromolithographed plates by P. Depannemaeker after Hoola van Nooten.

        The Seven Lamps of Architecture

      Orpington, Kent: George Allen,, 1880. With illustrations, drawn by the author. New edition. Folio. Original blue-grey printed boards, printed spine label, edges uncut and partly unopened. Protected in a good quality tan morocco-backed folding case, spine lettered gilt. 14 tissue-guarded steel-engraved plates by Ruskin. Joints a little chipped in places, spine toned and finger-marked, internally fine. On its first publication in May 1849, The Seven Lamps of Architecture was the first of Ruskin&#39;s works to carry his name, and the first to be illustrated. It was to prove a key work in the Gothic revival, notably encouraging the use of Gothic in secular buildings. Ruskin&#39;s intervention was theoretical more than practical: the "lamps" of architecture were moral categories &#150; sacrifice, truth, power, beauty, life, memory, and obedience &#150; abstract notions in themselves, but which for Ruskin were manifested in particular Gothic buildings in Italy and northern France.

        Lord Stanley engraving Sir Frederick Arthur, 1st Baron Stanley of Preston, 16th Earl of Derby (Lord Stanley of Preston) (1841-1908)

      published by Morris & Co. 392 Strand W.C. [1880], London - TRULY RARE. WE CAN FIND NO OTHER COPIES OF THIS ENGRAVING. No date but probably circa 1880 when he would be about 39 years old. [Frederick Arthur Stanley, 16th Earl of Derby]"Lord Stanley" engraving London published by Morris & Co. 392 Strand W.C. Drawn by C.W. Walton. Paper size is 17 1/2îî x 23 5/8î. Plate mark size is 10 1/2î x 13î. Image size is 5î x 7î.Signature Imprint: Lord Stanley ( [facsimile signature] ) Stanley family motto, "Sans Changer" or without changing. Some soiling overall on paper (but not on actual image) and top left corner bent and dark marks. Bottom left corner with darker mark and small bent corner. Overall condition is good+. In 1892, this Lord Stanley, 16th Earl of Derby gave a treasured national icon ó the Stanley Cup to symbolize hockey Championship in Canada. It is the same Stanley Cup the National Hockey League competes for each year now. He was the 6th Governor General of Canada., National Portrait Gallery, London has only one similar engraving of Lord Stanley where he is older and their different Lord Stanley engraving is printed later. , ìThere are 13 portrait lithographs by the artist (Walton) in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London. Many of the works he produced were of contemporary figures, including Francis Thomas de Grey Cowper, Seventh Earl Cowper (1834 -1905), who became Lord Lieutenant of Ireland and Charlotte Anne Montagu-Douglas-Scott (nÈe Thynne), Duchess of Buccleuch (1811-1895), who served as Mistress of the Robes to Queen Victoria. Some of Waltonís portraits were used to illustrate books. It seems that many of his earlier works were published by the firm of Morris & Co., 392 Strand, but he later published his own works from 103, Shaftesbury Avenue. Interestingly, a lithograph by Walton of Philip William Skynner Miles in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery was published by ëMorris, Walton & Coí, so it seems he may have briefly been in partnership with Morris & Co.î quoted from Philippa Martin, Curator, Information and Research (Historical) UK Government Art Collection [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Works of Thomas de Quincey

      Edinburgh - Adam and Charles Black 1880 - Complete set of sixteen leatherbound volumes with marble paper covered boards, marble paper pastedowns, and marbled foredge, with eleven frontispieces and a facsimile of the original manuscript of 'Shakespeare'. Thomas de Quincey (15 August 1785 8 December 1859) was an English author and intellectual, best known for his Confessions of an English Opium-Eater (1821). Confessions of an English Opium-Eater (1821) is an autobiographical account written by Thomas De Quincey, about his laudanum (opium and alcohol) addiction and its effect on his life. First published anonymously in September and October 1821 in the London Magazine, the Confessions was released in book form in 1822, and again in 1856, in an edition revised by de Quincey. From its first appearance, the literary style of the Confessions attracted attention and comment. De Quincey was deeply read in the English literature of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and assimilated influences and models from Sir Thomas Browne and other writers. In the early 1850s, De Quincey prepared the first collected edition of his works for publisher James Hogg. For that edition, he undertook a large-scale revision of the Confessions, more than doubling the work's length. Most notably, he expanded the opening section on his personal background, until it consumed more than two-thirds of the whole. The Confessions maintained a place of primacy in De Quincey's literary output, and his literary reputation, from its first publication, and it went through many editions. Yet from its publication, De Quincey's Confessions was criticized for presenting a picture of the opium experience that was too positive and too enticing to readers. De Quincey attempted to address this type of criticism. When the 1821 original was printed in book form the following year, he added an Appendix on the withdrawal process; and he inserted significant material on the medical aspects of opium into his 1856 revision. More generally, De Quincey's Confessions influenced psychology and abnormal psychology, and attitudes towards dreams and imaginative literature. The volume titles are: Confessions of an English Opium-EaterRecollections of the LakesLast Days of Immanuel Kant and other writingsThe English Mail Coach and other writingsDr Samuel Parr or Whiggism in its Relation to Literature and other writingsRichard Bentley and other writingsProtestantism and other EssaysLeaders in Literature, with a notice of Traditional Errors Affecting ThemThe Caesars and Other PapersStyle and Rhetoric and Other PapersColeridge and Opium-Eating and Other WritingsSpeculations Literary and PhilosophicLogic of Political Economy and Other PapersAutobiographical Sketches 1790 - 1803Biographies of Shakespeare, Pope, Goethe, and Schiller, and On The Political Parties of Modern EnglandSuspiria de Profundis, Being a Sequel to the Confessions of an English Opium-Eater, and other Miscellaneous WritingsCondition: The bindings are tight and firm with all covers and pages securely attached.

        The Chess Montly

      London, 1880-1881 iv+380 pages with illustrations, diagrams, tables, and index. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 6 1/4") bound in quarter black leather with gilt lettering to spine and blue marbled boards. From the library of Dino Ruggieri. Volume II (2). (Betts: 7-25). First edition.The Chess Monthly of Great Britain was one of the first to give properly annotated games. The principal editor, Leopold Hoffer, was helped enormously by having J H Zukertort as co-editor until his death in 1888. There were four regular sections: news, annotated games, problems and endgames. In addition, Hoffer carried on a profoundly bitter feud with his one-time benefactor, Steinitz. This publication should not be confused with The Chess Monthly published in the United States which was short lived from 1857-1862 and edited by Fiske and Morphy.Dino Ruggieri was born in, Pigüé a small city in the Buenos Aires province, October 22, 1921. His parents were both Italians, natives of Porto D'Ascoli. In their early years in Argentina, the Ruggieri?s family lived in the country, located about 45 miles from Pigüé. The family was engaged in agriculture. When Ruggieri was 8, his father purchased a home in Pigüé, where he lived until 2008. In 1938 he was involved in an accident and he was transferred to Buenos Aires for recovery. This was the beginning of his hobby of chess, both as a player over the board and by correspondence, but as well as a major collector of chess materials. After his recovery he became a prominent local chess player and very good representative in postal chess, where he represented Argentina in matches against Italy, Yugoslavia, Holland and other countries. He was using the correspondence with his rivals to offer exchanges. Ruggieri was related to Mr Niemeijer and soon began exchanging materials and making important purchases. He also had frequent contacts with Gregorio Lastra, Normando Ivaldi, Gaspar Soria and Carlos De Veyga, all known collectors of chess. He died in 2009 in 2009 at the age of 88.Condition:0Corners bumped, some foxing and age toning, Ruggieri's stamp to front end paper else a very good copy of a scarce item.

        THE ROYAL GORGE (GRAND CANON OF THE ARKANSAS.) DENVER AND RIO GRANDE RAILWAY --- THE SCENIC LINE OF AMERICA [manuscript caption title].

      Denver. [circa 1880]. - Mammoth-plate albumen photograph, 22 x 17 1/4 inches. Jackson's name printed on the mat. Light discoloration in the sky in the upper center portion of the image. Near fine. Matted, glazed, and framed, with calligraphic manuscript title below the photograph. Contemporary wooden frame with the initials of the Denver and Rio Grande Railway engraved in the bottom panel of the frame. A beautiful mammoth-plate albumen photograph by William H. Jackson of the Royal Gorge in central Colorado. Jagged cliffs rise steeply into the sky and the track of the Denver and Rio Grande Railway comes toward us from the distance, running along the Arkansas River. Jackson used a slight time exposure in taking this image, giving the river a very fluid quality. The photograph is in a contemporary presentation frame, inscribed with the initials of the Denver and Rio Grande Railway. This photograph was taken during Jackson's Denver era when he did extensive work for the railroads of Colorado and was given his own personal railroad car from which he based his photographic excursions and operations. This photograph is an example of the work Jackson did for the Denver and Rio Grande Railway. Jackson (1843-1942) began his career in photography in 1858, working as a retouching artist in a studio in Troy, New York. In the 1860s, after serving briefly in the Union Army, he worked at several studios in Vermont before moving to Omaha, Nebraska in 1867, where he established his own studio. He worked on an extensive series of views for the Union Pacific Railroad, which earned him enough notice to be recruited by Ferdinand Hayden for the U.S. Geological Survey team. With the Survey, Jackson explored and photographed vast areas of the West, including Yellowstone and parts of Colorado, Montana, Utah, and Nevada. In 1879, his work with the Survey at an end, he set up a commercial photography studio in Denver, marketing landscape photographs of the West. Jackson stayed in Denver until 1898, when he moved to Detroit. A lovely image by William Jackson of this Colorado scene.

        San Francisco 1849

      [No place 1880 - Firk's rare view of the city of San Francisco in 1849: "one of the best-known early San Francisco views" (Peters). Henry Firks was a painter and lithographer known primarily for his images of California during the mid-nineteenth century. His works are held by the Bancroft Library, California Society of Pioneers, and the University of California. This fine and rare lithograph depicts the city only months before the great increase in population brought about by the Gold Rush. Baird and Evans record eight issues of this image: this is the seventh with no imprint and fifty-two numbers and fifty-two items of reference listed beneath the image. "A wide-ranging portrait of San Francisco, crisply rendered by the artist Henry Firks, is provided in this important view of the city.the view delineates the main features of the newly laid-out town: its favorable location on a wide bay; the hilly terrain affording lookout points; the low commercial structures lining the shore; the residential buildings of various make, some substantial, most not; and the large amount of shipping accommodated by the harbor. At the right is the Pacific Ocean entrance to the harbor, already known as the Golden Gate. Flush with the right-hand margin of the arched view is Yerba Buena Island, preserving San Francisco's original name. Firks' rendering is the source of numerous other views of San Francisco looking north on Montgomery Street to Telegraph Hill" (Deák).

Barnes was at the forefront of the old/new school division in Presbyterians during the former half of the c. 19, and was even tried (and acquitted) of heresy in 1836.

It measures approximately 12.25" x 8.75" and is Signed "H.P.S." in lower right corner. Small chips and tears at the extremities, barely encroaching on the image, very good or better.
