        Ausgeführte Moebel und Zimmer-Einrichtungen der Gegenwart

      Berlin, Verlag von Ernst Wasmuth 1881 - Bemerkungen: Sehr seltenes Tafel- und Vorlagenwerk zur Möbelschreinerei des Historismus in 2 großformatigen Einbandmappen. Erwähnung finden jeweils Erfinder (Gestalter, Entwickler, Entwurf) und Zeichner, sowie die ausführende Fabrik. ". bietet die vorliegende Sammlung nur Zeichnungen von Möbeln jener Gattung, die nach Entwürfen der hervorragendsten Architekten und Fabrikanten Deutschlands ausgeführt sind (Ihne & Stegmüller, Kayser & v. Groszheim, A. Bembé, Anton Pössenbacher, G. Stövesand, Ferd. Vogt & Co, Joh. Pingel, O. B. Friedrich und Andere), also bereits die Feuerprobe des Gebrauchs und die Kritik des Publikums bestanden haben und die ferner nach den Anforderungen des modernen Lebensbedürffnisses geschaffen worden sind. Ein weiterer Vorzug unseres Werkes, das seiner ganzen Anlage nach in erster Linie rein praktische Interessen berücksichtigt, besteht in den sorgfältig durchgeführtenDetailzeichnungen, welche Profile, Grundrisse, Gliederungen, Ornamente u. dgl. in eingehender Weise veranschaulichen, sodass der Arbeiter unmittelbar nach diesen Vorlagen arbeiten kann, ohne genötight zu sein, selbst zeitraubende Detailzeichnungen anfertigen und Messungen vornehmen zu müssen. Um endlich dem Fachmann einerseits die Prüfung der Gesammtwirkung zu erleichtern, andrerseits ihm auch Muster für ganze Zimmereinrichtungen zu bieten, haben wir aus den Ausstellungen von Berlin, Düsseldorf, Wien usw. eine Anzahl der reichsten und geschmackvollsten Wohnräume für verschiedene Zwecke ausgewählt, von Meisterhand zeichnen lassen und durch den Lichtdruck reprodicirt. Die Entwürfe bewegen sich durchweg in edlen und maßvollen, dem modernen Geschmack angepassten Renaissanceformen, die in der Gunst des Publikums voraussichtlich auch fernerhin und für lange Zeit die erste Stelle behaupten werden." (Aus dem Vorwort) Beschreibung: Original-Halbleinen Mappen mit Deckeltitel. Format/ Einband 48, 5 x 32 cm; 2 Bände mit 143 (von 144) Tafeln (Tafel 23 fehlend).

        THE UNITED SERVICES COLLEGE CHRONICLE: 16 issues plus "Appendix & 'Tarass Boolba'," each in gilt-lettered, red cloth-covered chemise; 9 with poems and/or prose by Kipling (one also edited by him); one issue with text of speech given by Kipling at the school; the rest with notices of or about Kipling.

      [Bideford, North Devon:: United Services College,. 1881 - 1904.. The first edition and only edition of each issue. Kipling attended United Services College, a preparatory school at "Westward Ho!" in the village of Bideford, North Devon, from January 1878 to July 1882. (His experiences there formed the background for his 1898 STALKY & CO.) He was appointed editor of the school paper, "The United Services College Chronicle"; issues numbers four to ten, published between June 30 1881 and July 24 1882, appeared under his editorship and contain items by him (many of which he never authorized for re-publication). Kipling left school at sixteen to join his family in Lahore, India, and took a post with the Civil & Military Gazette but occasionally sent poems and stories written for Indian newspapers back to his old school paper. The Chronicles issued after he left school include items attributed to him that were not signed by him by name, leading to much debate as to whether they should be included among his works. [Richards, pp.514-5]. **PLEASE NOTE: we include issues with content attributed to Kipling by F. V. Livingston in her 1927 bibliography that Richards omits in his 2010 work because, though Richards bases his attributions on a bound volume of the Chronicle in which Kipling signed his contributions and omits several Livingston attributions based on corrections Kipling made to a copy of her work, he does concede that Kipling's lack of attribution and/or corrections could have been the result of either faulty memory or the wish to suppress certain items.** The issues included herein are as follows: NO. 7, DEC. 5, 1881: issued under Kipling's editorship; includes "Told in the Dormitory [Part I]" (verse), signed "A****d T******n" and "Waytinge" (verse), unsigned [Richards C7]. Also "Answers to Correspondence" (prose), signed "Ed."; "Literary & Debating Society" (prose), unsigned; and "A rabid effusion, in the style of 'The Hunting of the Snark'..." (verse), unsigned [Livingston VII]. NO. 13, MARCH 25, 1883: Notice of Dunsterville as Caliban (prose), unsigned, most of the text not present due to a flaw in the printing; "Modus Vevendi" (verse) [Livingston XIII]. NO. 16, OCT. 15, 1883: "The Song of the Exiles" (verse), signed "Gigs" [Richards C18]. NO. 27, APRIL 12, 1886: "The City of Delhi Is Hushed and Still" (verse), signed "O.U.S.C." [Livingston XXVII "...probably by Kipling"]. NO. 28, JULY 2, 1886: "The Battle of Assye" (verse), unsigned [Richards C122]. Also a review of the Indian (and only) edition of "Echoes," which prints in entirety the poem "London Town" as well as 19 lines from "The Flight of the Bucket" and 12 from "The Cursing of Stephen" [Livingston XXVIII]. NO. 31, MARCH 7, 1887: "City of Dreadful Night" (prose), signed "R.K." [Richards C72]. NO. 35, DEC. 15, 1887: "Dis Aliter Visum" (verse), signed "R.K. (O.U.S.C.)" [Richards C60]. NO. 36, MARCH 31, 1888: "East and West" (verse), signed "R.K." [Richards C81]. NO. 40, DEC. 17, 1888: "Naboth" (prose), signed "O.U.S.C." [Richards C130]. NO. 45, JULY 14, 1890: Notice of Kipling's visit, "Rudyard Kipling has been down here for a week this term after an absence of eight years spent nearly wholly in India. He got us a half-holiday." [Livingston XLV]. NO. 47, APRIL 10, 1891: Notice of Kipling, "It is reported that Rudyard Kipling intends to return to India in the Fall." [Livingston XLVII]. NO. 48, JULY 18, 1891: Notice of Kipling's "Finest Story in the World" [Livingston XLVIII]. NO. 55, DEC. 16, 1893: Notice of Kipling's article in the "Youth's Companion" in the U.S. in which he "is enthusiastic about his old school, and divulges something that doubtless will be new to those in authority." [Livingston LV]. NO. 58, DEC. 17, 1894: Kipling's speech "on behalf of the Old Boys" honoring Headmaster Price upon his retirement, [Richards C599]. NO. 84, DEC. 17, 1904: Mention of Kipling in an article about retired gym teacher Sergeant-Major Schofield, "the Sergeant says that his gymnastic and athletic abilities were not striking, and in STALKY & CO a few facts lie hidden in a mountain of fiction. One amusing episode is worth notice. Kipling always wore spectacles, even in the bath, and it used to be a favourite amusement of his companions to filch them, and Kipling's plaintive cry would be continually heard from the middle of the bath, 'My gigs gone again Sergeant.'" [Livingston LVXXXV]. Selfwraps; 12 pages each; not stitched or stapled; most with some pages uncut; all with mild to moderate darkening to first and last pages caused by offset from chemise inside covers; No. 28 lacking several pages (347-350 and 355-358 with all Kipling content present); No. 13 with printing error resulting in blank section affecting most of what we presume was "Notice of Dunsterville as Caliban." Chemise covers uniformly near fine to fine. .

        'Australian Contingent on their way to make History. Novr. 1914' (a large panoramic photograph of a detailed drawing - albeit an artist's impression - of this momentous event, signed in the image in the bottom right-hand corner 'H. Dalton Hall RN / Glenelg')

      The sepia-toned gelatin silver photograph (image size 200 x 557 mm) is behind a wood-veneer window mount (visible surface 379 x 689 mm) extensively captioned in white ink in a calligraphic hand with the names of the vessels in the fleet (46 by his reckoning). It is surrounded by a gilt fillet, behind glass, in the original wooden frame (external dimensions 527 x 832 mm); the original brown paper backing on the verso has been largely removed, but overall, it is a very impressive piece in fine condition throughout. Harold Dalton Hall (1881-1946) was 'a South Australian marine artist and model maker who worked in oil, watercolour, pen and ink. Harold joined the South Australian Navy and worked on the colonial naval vessel "Protector" as a cabin boy in 1894. While Dalton Hall undertook some training with Adelaide art teacher James Ashton, he was largely self taught' (South Australian Maritime Museum). The artwork commemorates the departure from Albany of the First Detachment of the Australian and New Zealand Imperial Expeditionary Forces 'which were later to become collectively known as the Anzacs. Merchant ships carrying troops from New Zealand, Queensland, New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria departed from Albany on 1 November 1914, together with three cruisers HMA Ships "Melbourne" and "Sydney" and the HMS "Minotaur". They were joined at sea two days later by two ships carrying troops from South Australia and Western Australia, along with the Japanese cruiser, HIJMS "Ibuki"' (Albany Convoy Commemorative Event). Only about a third of the convoy, carrying almost 30,000 men and 8000 horses, is visible in Hall's unrealistic depiction of the scene, but the value of this piece - surely a relatively expensive production in its time - lies much more in the light it throws on the contemporary treatment of such a significant current event.

        GIORNALE PER I BAMBINI. Direttore: Ferdinando Martini (in seguito Carlo Collodi).

      Roma, Tip. Bencini/Bodoniana, 1881-1883. In-4 p. (mm. 313x224), 3 voll., legatura in tela edit. figurata: blu, beige e rossa (con aloni, risg. rifatti), pp. (4),416; (2),848,(4); (6),848; molto ben illustrati da xilografie nel t. e con qualche tavola a colori applic. alla pag. in un volume (1882). In questo celebre e fortunato periodico per l'infanzia, diretto con formula nuova e anticonformista da Ferdinando Martini, è contenuta l'edizione pre-originale di "Pinocchio", apparsa a puntate a partire dal n. 1 (Anno I), 7 luglio 1881 e conclusasi con il n. 4 (Anno III), 25 gennaio 1883. Il romanzo sarebbe stato poi pubblicato da Paggi a Firenze, nel 1883, in un volume illustrato da Enrico Mazzanti. La prima parte, con il titolo "La storia di un burattino", ebbe quindi inizio nel primo numero del giornale e continuò fino al n. 17 del 27 ottobre 1881. La seconda, con il titolo "Le avventure di Pinocchio", riprese solo il 16 febbraio 1882 (n. 7) e fu portata a termine il 25 gennaio 1883 (n. 4). Le puntate del romanzo compaiono su 26 numeri del giornalino, i.e: 1, 2, 5, 7, 10, 11, 16, 17 (Anno I) - 7/12, 18/22, 47, 48, 50/52 (Anno II) - 3 e 4 (Anno III). Nell'anno III (1883), oltre alla fine di "Pinocchio", Collodi pubblicò il racconto “PIPI' o lo scimiottino color di rosa”, che apparve (in 5 capitoli) nei nn. 33 - 34 - 47 - 48 - 50. Si può sostenere che se non ci fosse stato il "Giornale per i Bambini", Collodi non avrebbe mai scritto l'immortale "bambinata", quello che è universalmente stimato il capolavoro della letteratura per l'infanzia di ogni paese e di ogni lingua. L'assoluta rarità di questa edizione è dovuta all'estrema deperibilità di un giornalino dato in lettura ai bambini. Cfr. Parenti “Rarità bibliografiche dell'Ottocento",I, p. 138-48 - Biaggioni "Pinocchio: cent'anni d'avventure illustrate", pp. 43-45: "La pubblicazione del testo di Collodi è accompagnata nel primo periodo di 8 puntate da immagini di repertorio tratte prevalentemente da pubblicazioni straniere per l'infanzia; mentre nelle puntate successive il materiale di repertorio è intercalato alle prime figure di Pinocchio realizzate espressamente da Ugo Fleres" - Pallottino "Storia dell'Illustr. italiana", p. 171: "Ugo Fleres (1857-1939) è il capostipite di quell'esercito di illustratori pinocchieschi che, indipendentemente dalle loro qualità, dall'incontro con "Pinocchio" finirannno per ricevere una sorta di 'aura', cosi' che nelle loro biografie verrà sempre premesso che 'illustrarono una edizione di "Pinocchio". Nel ns. esemplare: il 1881 ha la p. 375/376 ben restaur. per angolo infer. mancante (anche di testo) - il vol. del 1882 presenta qualche difetto (prima pag. del n. 1 restaur. per manc. dei margini ma non di testo; tracce d'uso; qualche alone) - il 1883 ha la p. 17/18 restaurata per manc. ai soli margini bianchi. A parte questi difetti, la raccolta è in buono stato di conservazione.

      Leipzig: F. A. Brockhaus, 1881. - Octavo. Original quarter blue pebbled cloth and printed green paper boards, front board lettered and illstrated in black, spine lettered gilt, fore- and lower-edges uncut, partly unopened. Lower corner of front board cracked but sound, occasional pencil marginalia; a very good copy. Frontispiece, 2 double-page plates at pp. 121 & 300, 32 plates of terracotta whorls, 6 folding plans & 1 folding map at the end of the work, with numerous other illustrations in the text. First edition in German, preceded by the English edition a year earlier. Schliemann's account of his excavations at Hissarlik/Troy. A shameless self-publicist, motivated more perhaps by his desire for glory than his love of historical truth, Schliemann has been criticised for the brutality of his methods, however Carl Blegen, director of the excavations at the site 1932-8, defended him from his anachronistic detractors; "Although there were some regrettable blunders, those criticisms are largely coloured by a comparison with modern techniques of digging; but it is only fair to remember that before 1876 very few persons, if anyone, yet really knew how excavations should properly be conducted. There was no science of archaeological investigation, and there was probably no other digger who was better than Schliemann in actual field work" (quoted in Rubalcaba and Cline, Digging for Troy, p.30) [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Account Mr. Jonathan Bubble's First Attempt at Flying, As Related by Himself

      Lynn, Massachusetts: Probably self-published, 1881. First Edition. Wraps. Brochure. . Good. Scarce -- no copies located on OCLC or otherwise. Inscribed by the author. 8vo. 22 by 17 cm. 16 pp., plus two illustrated plates, and wraps. Fanciful, humorous tale of flying. Gentle fun is poked at temperance, scientific ambition, and human foibles in general. With press notices pasted onto the rear of the front wrap, and short snippets of reviews of a prior work by Putnam. While this work may well have been self-published, it is a mystery how not a single copy found its way into an institutional collection, if that is indeed the case. Moderate wear to wraps. One of the two plates tipped back in.
