        Catalogue of the Collection of Pictures, works of art, and decorative objects, the property of His Grace the Duke of Hamilton, K.T. Saturday, June 17, and Monday, June 19, 1882, and the following day [Five Portions complete].

      Christie, Manson & Woods, London 1882 - 234 pp. + plates. 8vo. Cloth. Hardback. Illus. with 77 monochrome carbon print photographic plates. Two versions of this catalogue were produced, one without plates, and this, the illustrated version, with carbon prints by James Craig Annan (1864-1946), son of the Scottish photographer Thomas Annan. Annan was only 18 when he produced this series of prints (uncredited) for the spectacular Duke of Hamilton sale. There were 2213 lots auctioned over fifteen days in five sections which brought in 397,000 British pounds! In addition to the paintings offered, which could have easily formed their own museum -works by Botticelli, Breugel, Da Vinci, Durer, Fra Angelico, Giorgione, Holbein, Rembrandt, Rubens, Titian, Van Dyke, Veronese, and more- there was French furniture, Asian bronzes and lacquers, Sevres and Desden porcelain, and decorative objects in profusion. Photographs were somewhat new to illustrating auctions and "this is an early use of photography for a sale catalogue," according to William Buchanan in his "J. Craig Annan. Selected Texts and Bibliography," (Oxford. 1994), p. 137. Annan would go on to become an important British pictorial photographer and one of its master photogravure printers, contributing both his own work and gravures for other British photographers to Stiglitz' Camera Work (the January 1914 issue -no. 45- was devoted entirely to him). Scarce, especially in such beautiful condition and in such a fine binding. Buchanan 1. A near fine copy, rubbing on verso of plates, plates numbered in pencil.

        Der Weltteil Australien

      Leipzig and Prague: G. Freytag [and] Tempsky, 1882-, 1883. Four volumes, octavo, frontispieces in each volume, maps and other illustrations; original blindstamped green cloth. Influential German study of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. Karl Emil Jung, who had taught classics at Eton, emigrated to Australia in the 1850s, took part in several journeys into the interior, spent some years as a squatter, and worked as an educationalist including serving as Inspector of Schools for South Australia. He spent altogether more than twenty years in Australia, returning to Germany in the late-1870s where he wrote this extensive description of Australia and the Pacific with an audience of would-be German emigrants in mind. The book is divided into sections on: Australia and its native inhabitants; the Australian colonies including Tasmania; Melanesia, Polynesia; New Zealand; Micronesia. Jung became the German authority on Oceanic matters, and supplied information and articles on Australia and the Pacific to numerous periodicals, encyclopedias and text-books. His long stay in Australia had made him uniquely placed to give a comprehensive description of life downunder, and his book is very well illustrated with woodcuts, many of them full-page, of cities, landscapes, native peoples and natural features.

        Specimen Days & Collect

      Philadelphia: David McKay. 1882-'83. First. First edition, second issue with the McKay imprint. Some modest erosion to the cloth on the spine, paper over the front hinge starting, else a very good copy. Very nicely Inscribed (but not signed) by Whitman to a fellow author: "To Churchill Williams from his friend the Author with love. December 27, 1883." Francis (or Frank) Churchill Williams was the son of a successful playwright, and an 1891 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania (where he was Class President in his Senior year). Aside from publishing two novels (including an interesting portrait of Philadelphia politics, J. Devlin, Boss), he was an active member of the Philadelphia publishing world as a journalist, editor, and publisher. He apparently was well-known to most of the literary figures of the time, and is recorded as a guest at Mark Twain's 70th birthday party. Something of a literary prodigy at Germantown Academy where he attended high school, Whitman's inscription was written to Williams when the latter was 14 years old, a freshman at Germantown, and already winning literary prizes. Presumably Whitman, ensconced across the river in Camden, was warmly acquainted with young Williams, as the affectionate inscription would seem to indicate. Whitman was an active and agreeable signer, but for whatever reason, Specimen Days isn't often found signed by its author, especially with this degree of affection. .

        CETYWAYO AND HIS WHITE NEIGHBOURS; OR, REMARKS ON RECENT EVENTS IN ZULULAND, NATAL, AND THE TRANSVAAL

      London: Trubner & Co.,. 1882. Octavo, pp. [1-2] [i-vii] viii-xiii [xiv-xv] xvi-xix [xx-xxii] [1] 2-294 [295-296: blank] [note: first and last leaves are blanks],. original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold and black, rear panel ruled in blind, brown coated endpapers, edges untrimmed, this copy unopened.. A fine copy. (#30969). First edition. The author's first book, published 22 June 1882 in an edition of 750 copies underwritten by Haggard and his father. Presentation copy from William Meybohm Haggard, the author's father, with his inscription on recto of half-title leaf "To Leila Lady Walsingham / from W. M. Haggard" and a publisher's slip presenting this copy tipped in ahead of the title leaf. "After writing to several publishers in vain with a view to getting this, his first book, published, Messrs. Trubner & Co. replied agreeing to print 750 copies of CETYWAYO AND HIS WHITE NEIGHBOURS in return for Haggard's cheque for £50. By April 17, 1884, only 154 copies had been sold and the publishers wrote to Haggard in no uncertain terms as to this 'most unsatisfactory' account, but later when the author became famous through KING SOLOMON'S MINES and other novels, this edition was eventually sold." - Scott 1.

        Cetywayo and his White Neighbours;

      London: Trübner & Co., , 1882. or, Remarks on Recent Events in Zululand, Natal, and the Transvaal. Octavo. Original green cloth, title gilt to spine, gilt roundel to the upper board, triple black rule at head and tail of upper board and across spine, continuing across the lower board in blind. A little rubbed, slight wear at the corners, head and tail of the spine crumpled, front hinge very slightly cracked, some foxing to the prelims, as usual , and some to the margins, but on the whole a very good copy. First edition, one of just 750 copies. On his return to Britain following the outbreak of the First Anglo-Boer War, Haggard had been unable to find a publisher willing to take on his "denunciation of Britain's South African policies." (ODNB) Eventually he paid Trübner £50 to put out this small run, but in confirmation of the publishing world's reticence, in two years it had sold just 154 copies. However, following the runaway success of King Solomon's Mines, the edition sold through and a second was published in 1888, reaching a fourth by 1891. This copy much enhanced by a loosely inserted example of the infamous anti-Cetewayo photographic carte-de-visite. The deposed Zulu king was exiled to Britain arriving in July 1882; "He was immensely popular, attracting great crowds outside his house who hoped for a glimpse of him and stopping all traffic when he was taken shopping. He had learned to wear European clothing well, and his bearing was regal. He was taken to Osborne for a hugely successful luncheon with Queen Victoria…" (Morris - The Washing of the Spears) Agitation for his return to his homeland amongst a group of "carefully cultivated supporters" (ODNB) was eventually to succeed, but opponents of the move worked to represent him as unreliable, irresponsible, and above all a sot. This salt-print portrait, mounted on plain card shows him "in Natal before his departure for England," wearing a rather ill-fitting jacket and an extraordinary sort of pork-pie hat, but the arms of his chair have been doctored to form the legs of a table on which rest a not entirely convincing bottle and glass. A little faded and foxed, but unusual and uncommon.

        TWO ON A TOWER. A ROMANCE

      Sampson, Low, Marston et. al, London 1882 - Three volumes bound in early blue 3/4 morocco by Riviere with gilt lettering and design on the spines and five raised bands. All half-titles present, and the original green cloth spines are bound in at the rear of each corresponding volume. The first volume has been SIGNED by Hardy above the title. A novel relating the love affair between Lady Viviette Constantine and Swithin St. Cleeve who meet at the astronomical observatory that St. Cleeve has set up atop an abandoned monument tower on Lady Constantine's estate. Hardy made considerable revisions in the text of all three volumes, beginning with the second edition of 1883, and added new prefaces, as the various later collected editions of Hardy's works appeared. In his Preface to the 1895 Wessex Edition, Hardy wrote that his novel was "the outcome of a wish to set the emotional history of two infinitesimal lives against the stupendous background of the stellar universe, and to impart to readers the sentiment that of these contrasting magnitudes the smaller might be the greater to them as men." These original texts, as they were published in book form, are now generally considered the most sought after and the current Penguin series of Hardy's novels uses this text, even reproducing the title page of volume I. Sadleir ranks this as Hardy's "seventh scarcest book" and all original editions of Hardy's novels that have been SIGNED by him are exceptionally uncommon. Front joint of first volume cracking with a small nick at the head of the spine. Text clean, bindings bright and firm with minor rubbing [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
