        Die Uberschatzung Lessing's und dessen Anwaltschaft fur die Juden [The Overvaluation of Lessing and his Advocacy of the Jews]

      Karlsruhe und Liebzig: Verlag von H. Reuther. 1881. First. First edition. Octavo. 93, [1]pp. Green cloth gilt. Spine a bit faded and a little foxing in the text, very good or better. Signed by Duhring at the conclusion of the introduction. Bookplate of Friedrich Lessing (presumably a descendent of the subject), with much pencil marginalia in German, presumably in his hand, most confined to the introduction and front matter. Pencil note: "Breslauer 29 Aug 1944" (presumably purchased from the prominent German-American rare bookseller at that time). Duhring was a philosopher and economist, and one of the promoters of the anti-Semitic movement in Germany. This work denigrates the role of the 18th century German philosopher and dramatist Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, whose works promoted religious tolerance, as evidenced by his friendship with Moses Mendelssohn. .

        A Collection of Novels Inscribed to Close Friend

      - A collection of twenty-one novels by Dell, nearly all Inscribed to her close friend, the childhood nurse of her adopted niece with whom she shared a home for many years.Ethel Mary Dell (1881-1939) was a popular romance novelist in the early part of the 20th Century. Born in 1881 to a middle class English family, she led a quiet, ordinary life, being very shy and retiring in nature. Although introverted, she had a lively imagination and began writing stories, and getting them published in popular magazines, at a young age. Her first novel, *The Way of an Eagle*, was published in 1911 and was an immediate success. She continued writing popular romance novels until her death in 1939. Many of her works, including several here, were turned into silent films in the 1910s and 1920s.Dell's extraordinary popularity can be difficult for today's readers to appreciate but her influence is reflected in the writings of several authors with whom they would be more familiar. For example, the monologues of James Joyce's character Gerty MacDowell in Ulysses are written in the style of Dell's novels. P.G. Wodehouse created a character in his famous Jeeves and Wooster series based on Dell: "Rosie M. Banks," and in a separate short story he also had a similar character named "Leila M. Pinkney." Both characters are authors of romance novels and explicitly based on Dell. The protagonist of George Orwell's Keep the Aspidistra Flying frequently mentions Dell. In these instances both Orwell and Wodehouse were critical of Dell and exhibited the tendency of writers and artists of every age to disparage their contemporaries whose appeal was broader, and whose success was more commercial. Dell reportedly paid little heed to such attacks; she considered herself a storyteller first and foremost. Her aim was to entertain her readers, and this she accomplished. While her fame has long ago waned, her writing and its immense popularity are no less a reflection of her time than the relatively few works of her peers that are still read today.Despite her lucrative writing career and its attendant fame, Dell remained almost pathologically shy. Few photographs were ever taken of her and she was never interviewed by the press. When she was forty, she married Lieutenant-Colonel Gerald Savage, who dedicated himself to his wife's career and fiercely guarded her privacy. Because of these circumstances, signed books by Dell are rare. This set of her works, with their intimate association, is therefore highly unusual.The twenty-one books in the collection range from 1915 to 1938. A few of the books are reprints, but most are English or American first editions, and most are inscribed in the year of publication. The copies lack dustjackets, and are generally in very good to fine condition. Full condition details upon request. The collection includes:*The Knave of Diamonds*. 1915 Inscribed early reprint.*The Keeper of the Door*. 1916 early reprint.*The Lamp in the Desert*. 1919 Inscribed first American edition.*The Tidal Wave and Other Stories*. 1919 Inscribed first edition.*The Top of the World*. 1920 Inscribed first edition.*Rosa Mundi and Other Stories*. 1921 Inscribed first edition.*The Obstacle Race*. 1921 Inscribed first edition.*Charles Rex*. 1922 Inscribed first edition.*The Odds, and Other Stories*. 1922 Inscribed first edition.*Tetherstones*. 1923 Inscribed first American edition.*The Unknown Quantity*. 1924 Inscribed first American edition.*The Passer-By and Other Stories*. 1925 Inscribed first American edition.*A Man Under Authority*. 1926 Inscribed first American edition.*The Black Knight*. 1927 Inscribed second American printing.*The House of Happiness and Other Stories*. 1927 Inscribed first American edition.*Peggy By Request: The Love Story of Noel and Peggy from "The Keeper of the Door" Written by Request of Some of My Readers*. 1928 Inscribed first American edition.*Dona Celestis*. 1933 Inscribed first American edition.*The Prison Wall*. 1933 Inscribed first [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        THE STEAM HOUSE. Part I. THE DEMON OF CAWNPORE. With: Part II. TIGERS AND TRAITORS

      1881 - [a scarce set in blue] [Together, two volumes.] Translated from the French by Miss Agnes D. Kingston. Illustrated. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1881. 8 pp undated ads in each volume. Original blue cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt, beveled. First American hardbound edition of this tale taking place in India; to quote the synopsis provided by Scribner's at the time (as cited in T&M),~Account of a journey through northern India, in 1867, by four Englishmen, in search of hunting and adventure; they travel over ground made memorable by the Indian mutiny, of which many thrilling episodes are recalled and described; the famous Nana Sahib figures considerably in the work, a renewed effort having been made at that time by the English government to capture him; the search for him and his death are described; the great feature of this story is the original manner in which the characters travel, their equipage consisting of a complete house on wheels, drawn by a huge traction engine having the form of an elephant.~THE DEMON OF CAWNPORE has on its front cover an illustration of the "steam elephant" pulling the passenger car; TIGERS AND TRAITORS shows Maucler and Captain Hood taking refuge inside a tiger cage as tigers circle around them.~George Munro published the first (unillustrated) edition in English of Part I in August 1880, and Part II in January 1881, in his self-wrappered "Seaside Library." Sampson Low published the first illustrated edition of Part I in December 1880, followed by Part II in April 1881. And Part I of this Scribner edition was published in February 1881, followed by Part II in May 1881.~These two volumes are in blue cloth; we have also seen them in red cloth and (much more typically) in grey, terra-cotta or brown cloth (no priority). Both volumes are in just-about-fine condition (the merest hint of wear at the spine heads). This is the only set we have ever seen in blue. Taves & Michaluk V021; Myers 46.

        Un Curieux manuscrit enluminé sur l'amour courtois

      Manuscrit original 1881 - SELLIER (Jules). Arrêts de cours d'amours recueillis par Benoît Le Court, jurisconsulte, né à Saint Symphorien le Châtel dans le Lyonnais, chanoine de Lyon, Vermenton, 1881. Rl. demi-chagrin, 324 ff., 22 x 14 cm. Remarquable traduction sur le vieux français sur l’édition de 1566 par Jules Sellier, de Vermenton, qui se revendique examinateur au Crédit foncier de France. Le commentaire de Benoît Le Court, sur les Arrêts d'Amours, fut imprimé pour la première fois à Lyon, chez Griphius en 1533. Les cours d'amour représentent au moyen-âge une petite révolution culturelle menée par les troubadours provençaux qui, par la diffusion de compositions gaies et galantes, réservaient une place grandissante aux femmes. Par la quête de l’amour courtois comme idéal poétique, les troubadours eurent une forte influence sur les mentalités des cours européenne et l’érotisme de la chevalerie. Tant et si bien que l’expression publique de ses sentiments, sous forme de jeu et de mises en scènes conduites par les ménestrels, passionnait les participants. On en vient ainsi à examiner toutes les figures possibles de la relation amoureuse, et de ses empêchements, pour en dénouer les cas les plus complexes au moyen des solutions les plus habiles. Ainsi naquirent les Cours d’amour, véritable code jurisprudentiel et ludique de l’amour au moyen-âge. C’est un dénommé Martial d’Auvergne qui eut le premier l’idée de réunir les arrêts rendus par les cours d'amours, pour en former une sorte de Corpus jurit amoris. Puis, en 1533, un très célèbre jurisconsulte de Lyon, nommé Benoit le Court, commenta très sérieusement et mo¬tiva légalement ces arrêts. Finalement, en 1881, Jules Sellier qui possédait une copie de l’ouvrage de Benoit le Court en modernisa le texte dans une pièce unique, le présent manuscrit. Les feuillets ne sont, pour la majorité, écrit que sur le recto, quelques pages sont assez richement enluminées, toutes sont réglées à l’encre carmine et porte le monogramme de Jules Sellier. Reliure légèrement frottée, dernière garde désolidarisée, autres défauts mineurs, bon état général. [--ENGLISH--] Remarkable translation on the 1566 edition, made by Jules Sellier. The comment of Benoît Le Court, on the Rulings of Loves, was printed for the first time in Lyon, by Griphius in 1533. The courts of love represent a sort of cultural revolution in the Middle Ages, led by troubadours who, by the spread of cheerful and courteous compositions, reserved a growing placeto the women. By the quest of the courtly love as poetic ideal, the troubadours had a strong influence on the mentalities of the European courts and the eroticism of the chivalry. So much and so that the public expression of its feelings, in the form of games and plays led by minstrels, fascinated the participants. All the possible figures of the love relation, and its hindrances, offered the challenge to solve the most complex cases using the most skillful solutions. So were born the Courts of love, real case law and playful code of love in the Middle Ages. Martial d' Auvergne had the idea to gather the rules sentenced by the courts of loves, to form a sort of of jurit amoris Corpus. Then, in 1533, a famous French legal adviser of Lyon, named Benoit le Court, commented very seriously and motivated legally these rulings. Finally, in 1881, Jules Sellier who possessed a copy of Benoit le Court’s work modernized the text in a unique copy, the present manuscript. Pages are, for the great majority, written only on the first side, some pages are rather richly illuminated, all pages are ruled with carmine ink and wear Jules Sellier's monogram. Slightly rubbed binding, last endpaper is loose, other minor defects, good overall condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Chess Monthly

      Jas Wade, London 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 III (3). (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: Corners bumped, some foxing else a very good copy of a scarce item. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Ayala's Angel

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1881. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in three Volumes, rebound in three-quarter blue leather with complementary blue boards, spines lined, lettered, and dated in gilt, boards lined in gilt, and the top edge of each closed page block gilded as well, showing some edge rubbing to each Volume and a small chip to the spine head of Volume III. [Most copies were sent from the Publisher to the lending libraries, resulting in most copies becoming rather worn. In consequence, copies tend to be found rebound and, when still in their original cloth tend, to be quite worn.] The novel centers on Ayala, a young lady who, along with her sister Lucy, is left penniless by the death of their artist father. Each went to live with a relative and Ayala was taken in by her prosperous Aunt, Lady Tringle, whose loutish son falls in love with Ayala. In reaction to this, Lady Tringle makes a trade and sends Ayala to the impecunious relatives who had taken in Lucy and Lucy goes to live with Lady Tringle. Hugh Walpole described the tale as "...possibly the most unjustly neglected of all Trollope's novels...and yet it is one of the most charming of all the long list. It is the lightest and airiest of them all, it has a gaiety and happiness and playfulness that Trollope, gay and happy though he often was, never exceeded....what vigour of scene and creation, what vitality of action and dialogue it contains." The work was not reprinted in this triple-decker format an copies of this first edition are not at all common. A Very Good copy of this "charming" Trollope novel.
