        Autograph letter signed to Horatio F. Browne containing an original poem.

      Davos, Switzerland: Spring, 1881. 2-page autograph letter signed, single sheet of lined paper folded once, text to rectos only. Tipped-in to a handsome red morocco binding by Riviere & Son, spine gilt between raised bands, sides ruled in gilt with a French fillet, marbled endpapers, turn-ins richly gilt, all edges gilt. Housed in a red cloth folding case. Manuscript calligraphic title page in red and black. Collector's bookplate of W. T. H. Howe, president of the educational book publishers, the American Book Company. Residue from removal of later bookplate on pastedown. Letter very slightly toned; excellent condition. Autograph letter signed, incorporating an original poem in alcaics, "Brave lads in olden centuries". During 1880 Stevenson began suffering from a serious illness of the lungs. "Two winters were spent, on medical advice, at Davos, a dismal health resort in the Swiss Alps, where the only high spot was friendship with John Addington Symonds" (ODNB). It was through Symonds that Stevenson was introduced to Horatio F. Brown, who had been the former's pupil at Clifton College and remained a close friend – he would serve as Stevenson's literary executor. Living in Venice, Brown worked as a historian for the British government and also published several books on Venetian history, including Life on the Lagoons (1884) and The Venetian Printing Press (1891). Brown "took warmly to Stevenson", and the present letter contains an "experiment in English alcaics" that was "suggested by conversations with Mr. Brown and A. J. Symonds on metrical forms, followed by the despatch of some translations from old Venetian boat-songs by the former after his return to Venice" (Colvin, The letters of Robert Louis Stevenson, p. 232–34). Stevenson writes, "My dear Brown, Five years I have conded them" (a rather obscure opening: the transcription "conded" is from the collected letters, and is a variant of "conned", as in a ship). RLS then continues immediately into the 28-line poem, "Brave lads who in olden musical centuries / Sang, night by night, adorable choruses / Sat late by alehouse doors in April / Chaunting in joy as the moon was missing…". Stevenson concludes the letter by asking, "Please my dear Brown, forgive my horrid delay, Symmonds overworked and knocked up. I off my sleep; my wife gone to Paris. Weather lovely. Yours ever, Robert Louis Stevenson. [Postscript:] Monte Generoso in May; here, I think, till the end of April; write again, to prove you are forgiving". Stevenson would continue his friendship with Brown, later that year sending him as a gift a copy of Penn's Fruits of Solitude. In 1884, after reading Brown's Life on the Lagoons, Stevenson wrote him another poem, "To H. F. Brown" in celebration of his "spirited and happy book".

        Collection of Watercolours by a British tourist.

      - 1885 1881 - Collection of 96 watercolours on paper (sizes vary from 8 x 9 cm to 18 x 25 cm) mounted on 20 cards (37 x 51 cm) recto and verso, all with ink captions providing a place and a date, two watercolours signed "AH"; a few watercolours with tears, mostly closed, some staining, especially to cardboards. Loose, preserved in a recent box. These charming watercolour sketches were evidently made by a British traveller on a touristic trip, as they capture natural and architectural beauties of the regions he or she visited. Considerable number of sketches (35 watercolours and 8 pencil drawings) were made in Georgia and Crimea, capturing castles, churches and bird-eye views of Batumi, Borjomi, Alushta, Balaklava, Yalta and other places. Particularly interesting are views of Batumi, where traces of the recent Ottoman rule are clearly visible (such as views of a mosque and of the Turkish Governor's house). This Georgian city, incorporated into the Russian Empire in 1878, was the last Black Sea port annexed by Russia during the Russian conquest of that area. The traveller evidently spent a considerable time in Corfu, among the remaining views numerous from Corfu and Albania, with a few from Montenegro, England and the French Alps.

Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale sur papier courant. Reliures en demi basane sapin, dos à quatre fins nerfs sertis de pointillés dorés ornés de doubles filets dorés, quelques petites traces de frottements sans gravité sur les dos, plats de papier marbré, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, un petit accroc en pied d'une tranche, coins inférieurs émoussés, reliures de l'époque. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Victor Hugo à sa cuisinière Virginie qui, à Guernesey, semblait assurer d'autres services au poète ainsi qu'en témoigne son carnet de l'époque: "Touché seins de Sophie, vu ceux de Constance (...) Charlotte, Cloche (...), Virginie, la Cuisinière, cloche; la femme de chambre, cloche". L'énigmatique annotation "cloche" signifierait selon Guillemin (cf. Hugo et la sexualité): "secouer la grosse cloche en branle", expression empruntée à sa pièce de théatre l'Epée. On ne sait si en 1881 l'ardeur du poète pour sa domestique était apaisée, Hugo étant réputé pour avoir poursuivi son oeuvre de séduction jusqu'à la fin de sa vie. Quelques petites rousseurs sans gravité.

        The book of the thousand nights and a night[:] a plain and literal translation of the Arabian nights entertainments. With: (2) BURTON, Richard F. Supplemental nights. (3) BURTON, Richard F. [Autograph manuscript book review of an 1881 Panchatantra edition].(Colophons: U.S.A. [Boston, MA?]), The Burton Club, [ca. 1940]. 16 volumes (incl. 6 supplements). 8vo. With an original manuscript leaf written by Burton (with the manuscript heading: "Proof to Sir R.F.B. Hotel des Bains, Aigle, Canton Vaud, Switzerland" and a note “Long Primer Pressig.”) and each volume with a different frontispiece in two states (coloured and uncoloured). Contemporary richly gold-blocked green morocco, boards with Arabic script in gold, gold-tooled turn-ins.

      Scheherazade's web: the 1001 nights & comparative literature, J. Ross's bibliography 10 & 11; cf. Penzer, pp. 126-132 (other Burton club editions). The so-called "manuscript edition" of Richard Burton's celebrated translation of Alf Laylah Wa Laylah, commonly known in English as the Arabian nights. These Arabic tales, cherished in Europe since the early 18th century, are often erotic in content, and in Burton's unexpurgated translation they outraged Victorian England. Burton included numerous footnotes and a scholarly apparatus, offering a vivid picture of Arabian life (including sexual customs), which set his translation apart from earlier English renderings. The present edition (limited to 99 sets, the present being copy no. 49) includes a manuscript leaf from a text by Burton. In the present copy this is a book review by Burton, of a French translation of Johannis de Capua's Latin translation of a Hebrew translation of the Panchatantra, a Sanskrit frame story written several centuries before the Arabian nights. The notes at the head show that it was used as printer's copy.The title-page of volume one uses the correct main title, The book of the thousand nights and a night, but confusingly mixes it with part of the subtitle of the Supplemental nights: "to the book of the thousand one nights with notes anthropological and explanatory". To add further confusion it says "volume three", though the content is that of volume one. The volume number is clearly a printer's error, apparently corrected early in the press run.Some minor browning to the endpapers, those of the first volume partly detached and with a small pieces torn off, the binding has some very minor wear to the hinges, and a few headbands have been carefully repaired. A fine set.

Le travail de mise en couleurs est d'une grande finesse (il ne s'agit pas d'un travail d'amateur). Ces gravures sur Chine sont proposées en feuilles, à part, sous couverture de papier. Soit un total de 135 estampes pour cet ouvrage. Les exemplaires sur Japon étaient vendus 100 francs. Les exemplaires sur Chine étaient vendus 80 francs. Les exemplaires sur Whatman étaient vendus 60 francs. Soit 240 francs or en 1881 pour ces trois tirages réunis, comme ici. Le tirage ordinaire sur papier vergé (600 exemplaires) était vendu 30 francs. Cette jolie édition a été faite sur celle de 1772 ornée des mêmes gravures et qui fait partie des bijoux bibliophiliques de la fin du XVIIIe siècle. Les dessins de Eisen et de Le Barbier étaient alors si recherchés, l'interprétation de Le Mire à la gravure si bien exécutée, que les bibliophiles en ont fait une pièce de choix présente dans toutes les bibliothèques de renom. Ce tirage de 1881 n'a rien à envier à cette première édition en ce qui concerne la qualité des tirages sur les cuivres originaux. "Le Temple de Gnide n'était point destiné à l'impression, ce n'était qu'un argument "ad mulierem" et Montesquieu y avait mis plus de vanité d'amant que d'amour-propre d'auteur. Mais la curiosité au museau de fouine pénètre partout avec d'autant plus de malice qu'il y a plus de mystère et d'intrigue dans ce qu'elle veut mettre à jour. [.]" Octave Uzanne. Le Temple de Gnide est un poème de sept chants en prose publié sans nom d’auteur en 1725 par Montesquieu. « Le dessein du poème, dit la préface, est de faire « voir que nous sommes heureux par les sentiments du cœur et non pas par les plaisirs des sens. » Montesquieu lut le Temple de Gnide, censément traduit du grec, qu’il avait écrit pour mademoiselle de Clermont, à sa société, et bientôt, il courut quelque temps en manuscrit. Bientôt un périodique imprimé en Hollande l’inséra dans le second semestre de l’année 1724 avec cette note : « Cette pièce a été trop bien reçue du public pour refuser de la mettre au rang des pièces fugitives qui méritent d’être conservées. On assure qu’elle est de la façon de celui qui nous donna, il y a trois ans, les Lettres persanes. » À la fin de mars 1725, Montesquieu fit scandale en publiant, à Paris, le Temple de Gnide en volume sous le pseudonyme d’un évêque grec, précédée d'une Préface du traducteur, pendant la semaine sainte et avec privilège du roi. La période à laquelle il parut fit scandale : « On veut faire croire ce petit livret traduit du grec, et trouvé dans la bibliothèque d’un évêque, mais cela sort de la tête de quelque libertin qui a voulu envelopper des ordures sous des allégories. L’addition de la fin, où l’Amour fait revenir ses ailes sur le sein de Vénus n’est pas mal friponne ; et les femmes disent qu’elles veulent apprendre le grec, puisqu’on y trouve de si jolies [Attributes: Hard Cover]

In the present instance this justification, it is thought, may be found in the special knowledge which Dr. Doran had of all matters pertaining to the stage; in his intimacy with the literature which treats of manners and customs, English and foreign; and in his memory, which retained and retailed a great amount of anecdote, told with a sprightly wit. These volumes, reprinted with one or two exceptions from the pages of the "Temple Bar" Magazine, will, it is believed, be found to contain many good stories, and much information unostentatiously conveyed ..." -from the Prefatory remarks Fine

      [Klein-Schwechat: 1881]. An elaborate album of photographs of drawings of the celebrated brewery at Klein-Schwechat, founded in 1632, and today one of the leading breweries of Austria, producing a lager, a light smooth premium beer called Hopfenperle, and a super-premium called Steffl. The album was prepared for the renowned Viennese brewer August Deiglmayer (1827-83), who was at that time, managing director of the brewery and one of the great innovators of 19th century brewing. Deiglmayer spent much of his professional career at the Klein-Schwechat brewery. The drawings were executed at the request of Georg Wieninger (1832-87), scion of the Schärding family of brewers. Reproduced here in photographs, the drawings depict a number of the imperial-style buildings of the brewery, set around a series of courtyards, which today still more resembles a grand country estate more than a brewery. The first plate consists of a calligraphic title "Erinnerung an Klein-Schwechat" in a hop-vine border. Each has a caption in manuscript. In fine condition. Preserved in the original box. ❧ Jackson, The New World Guide to Beer, pp. 192-93.

COMMENT: This is one of the most striking sets I have ever seen with it's vivid coloration and rich 22kt gold gilding to the text edges. Definitely an eye-catcher. THE AUTHOR: Amédée Guillemin (born July 5, 1826 in Pierre-de-Bresse, France, d. 1893 Pierre-de-Bresse, France) was a French science writer and a journalist. Guillemin started his studies at Beaune college before taking his final degree in Paris. From 1850 to 1860[1] he taught mathematics in a private school while writing articles for the Liberal press criticizing the Second French Empire. In 1860, he moved to Chambéry where he became a junior deputy editor of the weekly political magazine La Savoie. After the annexation of Savoy by the French empire, he returned to Paris where he became the science editor of l'Avenir national (The Nation's Future). Guillemin presently started writing books of physics and astronomy which became very popular. He wrote "The Sky" which was translated into many languages. His major work, "The Physical World", consisted of five large volumes. His publisher, Hachette, encouraged him to write a series of booklets about astronomy and physics under the title "Small popular encyclopaedia", a scientifically sound but accessible collection about sciences and their applications. French astronomer Jacques Crovisier from the Observatoire de Paris suggests he may have been a source of inspiration for Jules Verne's 1865 novel, From the Earth to the Moon. Note these volumes are unmarked. From the collection GUTZWILLER ASTRONOMY &SCIENCE BOOKS. ; 16 .
