        Still life of Red Plums

      Britain: Original Watercolor, 1882-1890. Matted in Rag Board Fine A refined and rare original watercolor painted on clay-coated stock. Fine condition. Image size: 11 x 14 cm. Sheet size: 24 x 29.6 cm. (Elegantly matted in Ivory rag board with gilt French line decoration. Sized to 14 x 18 inches). With dedication leaf &#39;Edith Cast Faber from her Mother (a loving memento) painted by Mrs. J.A. Faber about 1882-1890&#39;. Classified as florilegia: ornamental flowers (or here fruit) painted for beauty rather than scientific or medicinal appeal, this lovely Still life of Red Plums was evidently painted from nature by an accomplished hand. Although the art of flower painting was a favored, traditional pastime for gentile women of nineteenth century Britain, few works boast the refined sense of composition, color, light and shading as evidenced by the practiced, skillful execution of this still life. To date the works by Mrs. Faber are undocumented however this elegant composition clearly reflects her appreciation for and mature expression of the glories of the garden, the natural world and the still life tradition.

        The Movements and Habits of Climbing Plants. Third Thousand. [Second Edition]. FIRST EDITION IN BOOK FORM AND FINAL TEXT

      John Murray, 18828vo., Second Edition, Third Thousand, with 13 woodcuts in the text, small inoffensive label scars to front free endpaper; original green arches-style cloth, gilt back, chocolate endpapers, uncut, small skilful repair to bottom of backstrip, a remarkably well-preserved, bright, crisp copy. With 32pp publisher's catalogue (dated January 1882) bound in at end. The woodcut illustrations are by George Darwin, the author's son. The first printing of the first edition was in Vol. IX of the Journal of the Linnean Society of London (dated 1867 but issued in 1865). The second edition, the first in book form (greatly revised and enlarged) was published in 1875 with a second 'Thousand' (actually only 500 copies) in the following year. The present edition is the first to carry the author's appendix to the Preface, and a five-line list of errata on last leaf of Contents. Since these refer to author's errors rather than to literals and remain uncorrected through subsequent reprintings from stereos, this represents the final text of the work. SCARCE, ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONDITION. Freeman (Darwin), 222; Freeman (BNHB), 909.

      London: Sampson, Low, Marston et. al, 1882. First Edition. hardcover. 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. 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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;s novels uses this text, even reproducing the title page of volume I. Sadleir ranks this as Hardy&#39;s "seventh scarcest book" and all original editions of Hardy&#39;s novels that have been SIGNED by him are exceptionally uncommon.

      1882. In Three Volumes. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1882. 32 pp ads dated Dec 1881. Original brown cloth decorated in black. First Edition of this tale of the boy Bevis (and his friend Mark) -- a sequel of sorts to WOOD MAGIC (two volumes 1881), which together are known as Jefferies&#39;s highly-autobiographical "Bevis books." In the first book Bevis, in exploring his rural surroundings, is able to talk with animals, birds, and even inanimate objects like the wind. In BEVIS he is a bit older, without the fantasy but with plenty of imagination -- as the two boys go on many astoundingly-unsupervised adventures, such as sailing a self-rigged boat and shooting with a homemade gun.~BEVIS... by the naturalist and nature mystic Richard Jefferies... is almost an object-lesson in how a book finds its true audience and its "minor classic" status almost by accident and against the odds. In BEVIS, written at the height of Victorian conventionality in children&#39;s books, when boys were manly boys, when the lower classes were treated sentimentally or patronizingly by the middle classes, and the cult of the "beautiful child" was beginning, Jefferies presented a picture of an anarchic childhood, with amoral (if manly) boys spending a summer virtually free of adult influence. While it is far from breaking away from its culture (there is an underlying machismo directly linked to conquest, exploration and empire), it was new and liberating, and can be argued to have had an extensive influence... Jefferies is not concerned with moral upbringing, but with skills; not with romantic ideas of the countryside, but with a mystic empathy between humans and nature which allows his boys to slaughter wildlife at random... It is also thoroughly sexist.~BEVIS was originally published as a three-decker for adults, but it very soon became adopted as a book for boys... Arthur Ransome, possibly the most influential twentieth-century children&#39;s writer, wrote consciously or unconsciously in the Jefferies mould... [Hunt]~This copy is in the primary binding of brown diagonal-grain cloth decorated in black and stamped in gilt -- with "London | Sampson Low & Co" at the foot of each spine. There is a half-title in Vol I only (as is proper), and Vol III has the 32-page ad catalogue dated December 1881. This is a remarkably fine, bright set: other than a couple of slightly-cracked endpapers and one tiny nick in a spine-head, this set&#39;s condition has not changed since 1882. Sadleir 1305 (Copy 1); Wolff 3615; Carter binding A (pp. 122-123).

        FOLKESTONE (NEW) PIER. A striking and skilful watercolour of a Cross-Channel paddle steamer trying to dock in a gale, approaching the new deep-water pier recently erected to allow ships to discharge passengers in Folkestone at low water. The difficulties of manoeuvering a paddle steamer in a high wind and strong tide are captured in this painting, as is the perilous task of men in two rowing boats catching a line thrown from the steamer - the line to be carried to the pier and attached to a capstan. The capstan would then pull the vessel to the pier using the motive power of a steam locomotive, seen at the pier head. The power of the sea and the open construction of the pier provide little shelter against the storm. The drama is vividly por

      Signed and dated 1882 - Watercolour on paper, 18 x 12 inches, mounted, framed and glazed in conservation materials. Recently returned from professional removal of old backing board, stabilization and minor restoration. The painting is free of blemish and the pigment is un-faded. A fine watercolour in fine condition. William Callow, RWS (1812 - 1908) was a painter of landscapes, buildings and seascapes, mainly in watercolour but some in oil - the Victorian heir of the picturesque topographical school epitomised by Prout. Articled at the age of 11 to Theodore and Thales Fielding, he went to Paris in 1829, where he worked under Newton Fielding, and later established himself there as a teacher. At the Paris Salon, he was much influenced by Thomas Shotter Boys. In 1831 he exhibited 'View of Richmond' at the Salon, and as a result was appointed drawing master to the family of Louis Philippe. From 1838 to 1840 he toured Europe making sketches. He left Paris in 1841 for London, and in 1838 was elected to the old Watercolour Society, and was its secretary from 1866-70. He exhibited there about 1,400 works. In 1855 he left London and settled in Great Missenden where he died. Two years before his death he turned out his portfolios of early works and these sold so well that he held an exhibition of them at the Leicester Galleries in 1907. His studio sale was held at Christie's on the 21st March 1910. His work is highly regarded and examples are in the Tate Britain, Manchester City Art Gallery, The Wallace Collection, the Courtauld Institute of Art, the Louvre and most of the great art collections in Europe and USA.

Other maps of interest include County and Township Map of Arizona and New Mexico, the County and Township Map of Dakota, a fine map of California and another of Texas. Binding somewhat worn, but complete, 2/3 of the front flyleaf excised, contents mainly VG with moderate age toning, light finger soil, minor edgewear to last few pages, and title page and contents page show minor damp staining to outer margin, a few instances of very short edge tears to pages, but the vast majority of the maps are in VG to better condition.

        Rare Autograph! Joseph Pulitzer pays a $400 dividend to John A. Cockerill, editor of the ìSt. Louis Post-Dispatchî ñ endorsed by Cockerill

      Partly Printed Check Signed ìJoseph Pulitzerî in red ink, 8î x 3î. Office of the Post-Dispatch, St. Louis, May 27, 1892. Filled out in another hand to John A. Cockerill Esq. ìdividendî penned in red in unknown hand. Pictorial logo at left. Endorsed ìJohn A. Cockerillî on verso. Folds. Fine condition. John A. Cockerill (1845-1896) became editor of the ìSt. Louis Post-Dispatchî in 1878. In October 1882, at a political rally, lawyer Alonzo Slayback, whose partner was running for Congress, had called the paper ìblackmailers.î In the ìPost-Dispatch,î Cockerill called Slayback a ìcoward.î On October 13, 1882, less than five months after endorsing this check, Slayback went to Cockerillís office and, after a short conversation, pulled a gun from his pocket and aimed it at Cockerill who grabbed his pistol and fired, killing Slayback. Cockerill was tried for murder. Newspapers took sides. The juryís verdict was ìjustifiable homicide committed in self-defense.î After the trial, the ìPost-Dispatchî saw a drop in circulation and number of advertisers. Pulitzer reassigned Cockerill to be editor of his newly acquired ìNew York World.î Joseph Pulitzerís eyes began to fail in the 1880s and by the end of the decade, at age 42, he was virtually blind. Autograph material authentically signed by Pulitzer has rarely appeared on the market. In fact, before this item became available, only one Joseph Pulitzer signed document or letter had appeared at a major public auction in at least the last 25 years.

      Lon. , 1882.. 29 b/w photo plates. In 1880 Colonel Stuart Wortley and his wife visited Tahiti, a place they loved. He was a noted photographer who made some technical advances in the collodion process, and whose photographs of Italy and Tahiti are still collected. He took some wonderful photographs during their stay in Tahiti, and she wrote the knowledgeable and entertaining text. The photographic reproductions in this edition have the rich velvety appearance of actual prints. Though the text shows light foxing around the outer edges, each print is clean and free of foxing, and is protected by a tissue guard. Bound in original decorated cloth with an island scene in gold green and blue, all edges gilt. Slight lean to spine and minor wear to corners and spine ends. WITH A FULL PAGE INSCRIPTION FROM THE AUTHOR, CHRISTMAS 1882.

        MARION FAY

      1882 - A Novel. In Three Volumes. London: Chapman & Hall, 1882. Original ochre cloth decorated in black. First Edition of "one of the thinnest and least satisfactory of the [Trollope] novels, relieved only by the abortive conspiracy of Lady Kingsbury and the [unscrupulous family] Chaplain" [Gerould]. The Marquis of Kingsbury's second wife does all she can to see that her husband's two children do not marry, so that her own children will inherit instead; into this cauldron comes Marion Fay, daughter of an old Quaker in town, who falls in love with the Marquis's son.~This is a near-fine set -- of a title which because of its ochre-colored cloth is notoriously difficult to find in decent condition (with the result that most sets encountered today have been rebound). The cloth is unusually clean, with the exception that (as is just about always the case) the spines are slightly dulled; wear is limited to just the very slightest, at the extremities. The original yellow endpapers are clean and exhibit scarcely any cracking, and the interior leaves are fine without any foxing. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 64. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
