      1880. Boston: Houghton, Osgood and Company, 1880. Original terra-cotta cloth, beveled. First American Edition, which consisted of 1500 copies -- issued two months after the 500-copy English two-decker (which is now quite rare).~And what is interesting is that in the ensuing weeks [following his brother William's marriage], Henry wrote his worst novel... It bears the uncommonly ineffectual title of CONFIDENCE. Its plot is like an old eighteenth century comedy, or a theme for a strange three-figure ballet, in which two young men... become involved with a young woman named Angela. First, one of the young men loves Angela; she rejects him and he marries someone else. Then the other young man wants to marry her. She accepts him, and in the climax there is much dashing about and a frantic scene of jealousy in which the first young man offers to divorce his wife if Angela will still have him... [Edel]~This copy is in the primary binding (which comes in any of three colors, without priority), with "Houghton Osgood" rather than the later "Houghton Miff­lin" at the foot of the spine. Although CONFIDENCE has not been as difficult to find as some of the other early James titles, copies like this are becoming rather scarce. Housed in a handsome morocco-backed slipcase. Supino 11.3.0; Edel & Laur­ence A11b.~This copy twice bears the signature of Mrs. Allan Melville (on the front endpaper dated 1880, and again on the title page). This was Herman's sister-in-law: when Herman Melville and his new wife Elizabeth returned from their honeymoon in 1847, they moved in with his younger brother Allan (a Wall Street lawyer) and his new first wife Sophia in New York City (after her death, Allan in 1860 married Jane Dempsey -- the Mrs. who owned this volume). Provenance: James Gilvarry Sale (1986), lot 117.

        North-West Exploration. Journal of Expedition from De Grey to Port Darwin

      Perth,: Richard Pether, 1880.. Folio, with eight tinted plates and a large folding coloured map (repaired tear with small loss); original papered boards with paper label on upper board, backed in blue cloth, early crease extending the length of the upper board, extremities worn, head and tail of spine expertly restored, withal a good copy. First edition and rare, an important work of western Australian exploration. This was the only major publication relating to Alexander Forrest's important expedition in the north-west, and 'because of its less austere style of publication and the importance of the expedition itself, this volume is quite sought after and would grace any collection' (Wantrup).Alexander Forrest, who served under his brother, John, on several expeditions, did his most memorable exploratory work in the north-west, especially on this 1879 expedition he led from the De Grey River to the Telegraph Line and Port Darwin. The eight-month expedition followed the Fitzroy River to the King Leopold Range. Finding this mountain range impenetrable they skirted around it to discover and name the Nicholson Plains, and later the Ord River. After reaching the Victoria River and the Telegraph Line, the party then struck out for Port Darwin.This was one of the most important expeditions undertaken in the north-west of the continent and was of considerable importance in opening up the interior. Forrest's Journal is unusally attractive for a government-printed expedition account, and is illustrated with early Perth-printed lithographs after sketches by Henry Charles Prinsep. Prinsep (1844-1922), who had studied art under George Frederick Watts in London, and later in Heidleberg and Dresden, as well as studying law at Oxford, emigrated to the Swan River Colony in 1866. He joined the Lands and Surveys Department as a draughtsman, later becoming head of the Mines Department and chief protector of the Aborigines. He was commissioned by the Lands Department to illustrate both Forrest's Journal and Giles's Australia Twice Traversed, published in 1889. Interesting - though misleading - is the credit Prinsep received in the introduction to Giles's work, where he is named as Mr. Val Prinsep of Perth. Valentine (Val) Prinsep was Henry's more famous artist-cousin, but was based in London.Ferguson, 9679a; Wantrup, 195.

        Dorcas Gazelles and Cobra

      Great Britain: Original Watercolor, [c.1880-1900]. Matted in Rag Board Fine Fine original watercolor on rag paper. (25.4 x 17.7 cm). Matted in Rag. Condition: Fine, with minor aged paper remains to verso corners from previous mount watermarked 1902. Pathos notwithstanding and made all the more alluring by want of attribution, this vivid watercolor scene (a trio of Dorcas Gazelles startled by a coiled Cobra) was envisioned and thus executed not by a professional artist, field naturalist or explorer but by an amateur, or armchair, traveler/naturalist /painter. The drama evident yet depiction gentle, this watercolor quite plausibly was painted by a young Victorian gentlewoman who would have learned the art of nature painting, as was the custom, and who would have sought inspiration from the grand natural history color plate volumes of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This bold and vivid naturalists' display of a tapestry of dappled foliage or the crystalline translucence of disturbed water or the splendid reticulated plumage is clearly stylized by a primitive eye, yet executed with an accomplished and refined hand; the technique is learned. The resulting composition is one of dramatic charm.

        Lord Randolph Churchill, inscribed by Churchill to Brigadier-General Simon Fraser

      This is Churchill's first biographic work, concentrating heavily on his father's career in Parliament after 1880. The British first edition was published in two volumes in 1906. In 1907, the publisher issued a one-volume edition, containing the full text of the two volume work (printed on thinner paper). The binding closely resembles that of the first edition of just a year earlier; the binding cloth and shelf appearance are the same except for the absence of the gilt title and coat of arms on the front cover of the one-volume edition. This particular copy bears a lovely and quite interesting five-line inscription in black ink on the half title reading: "To / Simon Fraser / from / Winston S. Churchill / 1908-1922". Brigadier-General Simon Joseph Fraser, 14th Lord Lovat and 3rd Baron Lovat KT, GCVO, KCMG, CB, DSO (1871-1933), was a prominent Scottish Roman Catholic aristocrat, soldier, politician, and one of the largest landowners in Britain. Lord Lovat served with distinction in both the Boer War and the First World War, where he commanded the Highland Mounted Brigade at Gallipoli . He would later serve with Churchill in the Conservative administration of Stanley Baldwin as Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs from 1926 to 1927. Churchill's inscription is an epitaph for his stormy, 15-year tenure as M.P. for the Scottish industrial constituency of Dundee. In 1908, Churchill - still in his mid thirties - was promoted to the Cabinet. At the time, an old rule required that newly appointed Cabinet Ministers had to seek re-election by their constituencies. Unfortunately for Winston, the by-election became a test of confidence in the Liberal government. Forced to defend the Government's policy of the past two years, targeted by vengeful Conservatives, and hounded on the hustings by Suffragettes, Churchill lost his seat. Literally within minutes of his defeat, Churchill received a telegram from Dundee Liberals inviting him to become their candidate. When he did accept the invitation - 72 hours later to the chagrin and consternation of local pride - Churchill wrote to his mother: "It is a life seat and cheap and easy beyond all experience". This was not to be the case. At the time, Churchill was a young lion of the Liberal Party, vexing the British establishment and helping lay the foundations of the modern welfare state. In 1904, he had quit the Conservative Party and joined the Liberals, beginning a dynamic chapter in his political career that saw him champion progressive causes and be branded a traitor to his class - doubtless endearing him to the people of Dundee. Nonetheless, the gap between him and his constituents was acute. Dundee was a predominantly working class constituency - "a dark mass of dirty grey sandstone tenements, punctuated by high chimney stacks and church spires", heavily reliant on the volatile textile trade. In 1922, Churchill lost his seat in a 6-way contest, in which he placed 4th. His party was likewise slaughtered at the polls, winning only 62 seats and becoming insignificant. At the time, the loss seemed like Churchill's political denouement. However, two years later, after losing two by-elections, he won his way back to the House of Commons as an independent. When Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin brought him into his Cabinet as Chancellor of the Exchequer, Churchill turned full circle, becoming once more a Tory, which he would remain for the remaining 40+ years of his long political life. The inscription is distinct and unfaded, though the ink has bled slightly onto the facing blank endpaper. The book itself retains the original, unrestored binding in red cloth with gilt top edge. The binding is tight and square with a lightly sunned spine, darkened spine gilt, and minor wear at extremities. The contents are clean and bright with no spotting and no markings other than the author's inscription. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A17.4, Woods/ICS A8(b), Langworth p.74.

        Lord Randolph Churchill

      Here is a spectacular fine binding we have commissioned of Winston Churchill's biography of his father, Lord Randolph Churchill.  This is Churchill's first biographic work, concentrating heavily on his father's career in Parliament after 1880. It was well received as both a frank portrayal of the subject and a showcase for Winston's literary talent. At the time, the young Winston Churchill still saw himself in the shadow of his once-influential father. Today it is the son that history has favored with lasting fame.  Offered here is the British first edition, only printing, in a superlative fine binding.  The binding was commissioned by us from a talented, sole-proprietor UK binder whose services we and our customers are privileged to employ.  The binding is half-leather, featuring hand-dyed, polished tan calf over maroon cloth boards with twin morocco spine labels on each volume. The gilt titling, rules, and decoration are 24 carat gold leaf, laid on by hand. The spine features raised bands, ruled compartments, extensive gilt decoration including the lion rampant, red title panel, and black author panel. All borders and transitions feature double gilt rules. The head and foot bands are sewn, not glued. Condition of the binding is flawless. The contents are well-suited to the binding, being especially crisp and bright for this edition.  No spotting.  No inscriptions.  All illustrations and protective tissue covers are intact.  Even the untrimmed page edges are unusually clean.  Searching for flaws, we note only slight age-toning to the rough extremities of the page edges and a tiny ink stain at the top edge of Volume II.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A17.1, Woods/ICS A8(a), Langworth p.69.

Couverture d'attente de l'époque sur laquelle l'auteur à dédicacé son ouvrage. Edition originale. L'ouvrage est dédié à Pasteur. L'auteur est né à Lembeye dans les Basses-Pyrénées au coeur du pays basque le 22 décembre 1852 "C'est en pratiquant l'autopsie d'une femme morte dans le service de M. Hervieux, à la Maternité, vers le mois de mai, que je me trouvai pour la première fois en rapport avec M. Pasteur, qui cherchait en ce moment dans la culture des organismes de la fièvre puerpérale la solution d'une question soulevée à la tribune académique. Il m'engagea à entreprendre aussi l'étude de la question, ou de quelques-uns de ses côtés, persuadé qu'il était que la tâche était longue et difficile. Il m'offrit en même temps l'appui de ses précieux conseils. J'ai donc pu fréquenter quelque temps le laboratoire de ce maître éminent." Illustré par 3 planches hors-texte et 25 figures dans le texte. Cette édition en thèse est rarissime et moins connu que l'édition en librairie qui sortira quatre mois après (avec deux pages de moins) chez J.-B. Baillière sous un titre légèrement remanié : "La fièvre puerpérale et les organismes inférieurs; pathogénie et thérapeutique des accidents infectieux des suites de couches." Les deux derniers feuillets blancs sont froissés avec un petit manque de papier sinon bel exemplaire. Thèse soutenue devant Depaul, Guéniot, Marchand et Rendu.

      18. Very Good. [PAINTING ALBUM] TOSHINDO, artist. [A HUMOROUS ALBUM OF INDELICATE LADIES, c. 1880] 22 x 13.8 cm, Orihon folding album in raw silk covered boards. Shibata Toshindo was married into the Shibata family, her original family name was Niwa and birthplace Nagoya. The brother of one artist and married to another, she became a student of Tsukioka Yoshitoshi and developed her skills as a painter of beautiful women. In this album she has turned her brush to a more humorous angle. In a series of 12 double page paintings she has recast the traditional "farting scroll" genre to the feminine side. Feats of strength, wrestling, games, even the ultimate farting contest, performed by robed and (hopefully) perfumed ladies. Fun and obviously irreverent. In very good condition. Quite skillful with a sure line.

        Histoire de la vie et des vertus de Mgr. Caire protonotaire apostolique décédé à Lyon le 5 juillet 1856 ( 1797 - 1856 ) [ Biographie manuscrite inédite d'un prêtre marseillais, aumônier d'Henri IV et de Louis le Grand, contemporain de Lamennais, Frayssinous, Quelen et Mgr. de Mazenod, ami de Mgr. de Salinis et co-directeur du collège de Juilly ]

      Congrégation de Notre Dame, Chanoinesses de St Augustin 1880 Manuscrit de travail anonyme et original, abondamment corrigé et annoté, et reproduisant abondamment la correspondance de Mgr. Caire, en 1 vol. in-8 relié demi-basane marron, Congrégation de Notre Dame, Chanoinesses de St Augustin, s.d. (circa 1880), 401 pp. (rel. frottée avec le premier plats et les premiers ff. détachés). Un passionnant document retraçant un intéressant parcours ecclésiastique dans la première moitié du XIXe siècle (avec un saisissant récit de l'épidémie de choléra de 1832 à Paris) Fils du fervent légitimiste marseillais André Antoine Esprit Caire et de Joséphine Pinatel, André Antoine Esprit Vincent Caire, né le 5 avril 1797, manifesta dès son plus jeune âge les meilleures dispositions pour la piété et les études sérieuses. Alors qu'il était âgé de six ans, en 1804, son père fut emprisonné mais Napoléon "convaincu qu'il n'avait pas trempé dans la conspiration de Pichegru, lui rendit la liberté et voulut l'attacher à sa cause en lui faisant offrir ... les postes les plus éminents". En 1811, suite à l'assassinat de 11 personnes en quelques mois, Mme Caire effrayé obtint de son mari un déplacement de Creisseaux vers Aubagne ; le petit André poursuivit alors ses études au petit séminaire fondé à Marseille par le père Ripert. Après un bref séjour à Aix, il retrouve le père Ripert aux Aygalades. Epuisé par 25 années de lutte, son père meurt en 1816, mais malgré les pressions qu'il eût à subir en tant qu'aîné, André persévère dans sa vocation ecclésiastique ; âgé de 19 ans, et seulement tonsuré, il enseigne déjà au petit séminaire. Ordonné diacre à 22 ans, puis prêtre avant ses 25 ans, il est mandé par Mgr Perigord, archevêque de Paris, et Mgr de Beausset lui accorda l'exeat. L'abbé Caire quitte donc Marseille le 28 août 1821, et est accueilli au séminaire d'Issy par le supérieur M. Duclos. Celui-ci lui annonce alors, comme André Caire l'écrit à sa mère : "vous êtes appelé à remplir de hautes destinées, le coadjuteur me charge de vous envoyer chez Mr Frayssinous, qui doit vous faire une proposition". On déjeune et puis je cours chez Mr. Frayssinous (la tête trottait bien plus encore) cet homme si justement célèbre me propose l'éducation des enfants de Mr. de Clermont-Tonnerre, pair de France. ... " On lui prédit même que viendra ensuite l'éducation du Duc de Bordeaux, "dont le marquis de Clermont-Tonnerre sera très probablement le gouverneur". Devant l'insistance du coadjuteur, il rencontre le marquis de Clermont-Tonnerre qui le considère comme engagé. "Je sors étourdi et presque décidé mais la nuit porte conseil. Je considère d'un côté tous les pour : la volonté de l'archevêque, l'avis de son conseil, et surtout de Mr. de Frayssinous, les avantages du poste : logement très agréable, bonne table, excellente société (le grand chancelier, les plus illustres pairs : les Bonald, les Villèle, etc. etc. car tout ce qu'il y a de mieux va là !) Voiture à mon service, campagnes en Normandie, en Picardie, etc. etc. Le marquis et la marquise me plurent (celle-ci par parenthèse est dans ce moment le précepteur de ses enfants ; elle lit Virgile et Tacite comme l'almanach). Mais voici les Contre : d'abord, j'étais perdu pour mon état... considération d'un poids immense ; ... Ensuite, un précepteur est toujours le premier domestique et je suis, sans prétention, le fils de mon père... " Le jeune abbé réussit à se sortir avec tact de cette situation délicate, et conserve l'amitié de Mgr. de Quélen et de Mr. Frayssinous. Il est alors admis comme prêtre administrateur à la paroisse des Missions étrangère ; il continue ses visites régulières chez Monsieur Frayssinous, croise le duc de Rivière, M. de Pastoret. L'abbé Caire évoque avec talent un souper servi aux petits Savoyards par la société des bonnes oeuvres "composée de ce qu'il y a de mieux" : "ici un grand vicaire portait du pain ; là le marquis de Montmorency versait à boire, plus loin l'abbé André que vous connaissez bien essuyait, par distraction, le bord d'une assiette contre l'habit du comte de *** qui coudoyait lui-même l'archevêque. Le spectacle était grotesque et touchant à la fois". Le 18 février 1823, M. de Frayssinous le nomme aumônier du Collège Louis le Grand. A l'occasion du passage à Paris de Mgr. de Mazenod, l'abbé Caire lui rend visite sans prétendre s'engager sur un retour à Marseille. Malgré l'irritation de Mgr. de Quélen, l'obstination de Mgr. de Mazenod porta ses fruits et l'abbé Caire retourne à Marseille en 1823, en tant que responsable du petit séminaire. Nommé chanoine honoraire de la cathédrale, il est admis dans la société des prêtres du Sacré-Coeur, mais suite à divers ennui, annonce sa démission du petit séminaire et repart à Paris, où il devient second aumônier à Henri IV. : "l'Abbé de Salinis, premier aumônier, est mon ami ; il a des qualités précieuses, nous vivrons comme deux frères. La situation du collège est charmante : derrière Ste Geneviève, beau jardin, appartement agréable pour les aumôniers, usage de la bibliothèque, voilà ce qui m'a déterminé pour Henri IV". Il dit désormais sa messe pour les religieuses de la Congrégation de Notre-Dame, près de Saint Nicolas du Chardonnet. Dans un courrier à sa mère, lors du carême de 1826, il évoque Lamennais : "M. l'abbé de Lamennais, qui partage quelquefois nos repas, prétend que nous pouvons sans scrupule prendre des forces pour tirer des coups de fusil contre l'impiété". Il évoque ensuite longuement le jubilé royal de 1826 ; il est ensuite nommé aumônier adjoint des pages du roi ; en 1828, et prononce un "panégyrique de Saint Louis" devant l'Académie Française. Il écrit notamment pour rassurer sa mère à propos des scènes révoutionnaires qui avaient eu lieu à l'occasion des élections, et s'inquiète des effets d'une épidémie à Marseille. Pour les vacances de 1828, il doit annuler son projet de descendre en Provence avec le peintre Paulin Guérin, car il est retenu par l'importante affaire du collège de Juilly. Il évoque longuement l'affaire, le tollé suscité par la reprise de l'institution par les abbés de Salinis, de Scorbiac et par lui-même, les difficultés de l'installation et son retour à Paris, chez les religieuses de la congrégation, dans l'intérêt du collège de Juilly. Il évoque ensuite le sac de Saint Germain l'Auxerrois (affaire du service du Duc de Berry). Nommé vicaire de Saint Eustache, il évoque par la suite, de manière saisissante et sur une dizaine de pages, le terrible épisode de l'épidemie de choléra, auquel succombe la mère supérieure de la Congrégation. Il est ensuite nommé premier vicaire à Saint Philippe du Roule, mais reste en charge de la congrégation, dans laquelle il accueille la marquise de Balivière, comme dame pensionnaire puis comme novice, et négocie en 1838 le mariage de Mlle de Balivière avec le comte de Guiteaut, ancien élève de Juilly. Nommé administrateur des fondations anglaises et écossaises en France, l'abbé Caire reçoit en janvier 1847 le titre honorifique de protonotaire apostolique. On suit tout le détail des ses missions et pérégrinations, à Amiens (notamment au concile d'Amiens en 1853), à Rome où il fait recevoir l'ordre des Soeurs de Saint Joseph, et où il assiste à la proclamation du Dogme de l'Immaculée Conception. Il meurt le 5 juillet 1856 et son coeur est conservé dans la chapelle des soeurs de la congrégation de Saint Joseph. On joint un intéressant document manuscrit de 8 pp., bordé de noir, reproduisant le discours prononcé par Mr Briot de la Mallerie, curé de Saint Philippe du Roule, le 9 juillet 1856. On évoque longuement (pp. 55-57) la maison de Sainte-Marguerite, située à quelques kilomètres de Marseille. Français

      London : published by Morris & Co. 392 Strand W.C. , [1880]. 1st Edition. No binding. Good+. 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 1/2"" x 23 5/8". Plate mark size is 10 1/2" x 13". Image size is 5" x 7". 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 Ñ 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. , "There 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 (née Thynne), Duchess of Buccleuch (1811-1895), who served as Mistress of the Robes to Queen Victoria. Some of Walton's 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 'Morris, Walton & Co', so it seems he may have briefly been in partnership with Morris & Co." quoted from Philippa Martin, Curator, Information and Research (Historical) UK Government Art Collection
