        The Story of an African Farm

      London: Chapman and Hall, Limited, 1883. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Olive Schreiner (1855-1920) was a South African author, the ninth of twelve children born to a missionary couple. The Story of an African Farm is regarded as an important feminist novel, published by the author under a male pseudonym. "The tale centres round an ordinary Boer farm and depicts the hard, coarse, unlovely life of some of the Afrikander peasant farmers…the work is certainly the most notable volume of fiction relating to South Africa undertaken up to this period by any writer of South African birth and education." (Mendelssohn, p.281). This first edition was published in an edition of 300 copies. Since it caused a sensation, first edition copies were often widely read and circulated, with expected wear and loss to the books. Here is the 2-volume first edition uniquely and fabulously rebound by renowned Sangorski & Sutcliff. The publisher's original cloth binding prominently featured ostriches on the spines of both volumes. In a nod to the original binding and a truly striking piece of craftsmanship, this set is rebound in full black ostrich skin with gilt top edge and hand-marbled endpapers. The condition of the binding is virtually as new. The contents are remarkably crisp, clean, and bright with no spotting or previous ownership marks. Even the untrimmed fore and bottom edges are clean and bright.

The two men were commissioned by James Irvine of the Guinea Coast Mining Company to survey and report on his mining concessions. They did find gold and other precious metals and gemstones, and Burton offered a recommendation for an extraction method, but he failed to profit from the expedition as he had hoped. (Quentin Keynes Sale Catalogue; Penzer pp106-107, DNB). Provenance: From the collection of Burton scholar and bibliographer James A. Casada.

        The Works of William Makepeace Thackeray

      86 - London - Smith, Elder, & Co., 1883 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Thecomplete Works of William Makepeace Thackeray, offered here in a beautiful Riviere binding. Thackeray (1811-1863) was an English novelist of the 19th century. He was famous for his satirical works, particularly Vanity Fair, a panoramic portrait of English society. During the Victorian era, Thackeray was ranked second only to Charles Dickens. He saw himself as writing in the realistic tradition and distinguished himself from the exaggerations and sentimentality of Dickens. Some later commentators have accepted this self-evaluation and seen him as a realist, but others note his inclination to use eighteenth-century narrative techniques, such as digressions and talking to the reader, and argue that through them he frequently disrupts the illusion of reality. The setis comprised ofthe following volumes, listed here in numerical order:Vanity Fair (I)Vanity Fair (II)Pendennis(I)Pendennis(II)The Newcomes (I)The Newcomes (II)The History of Henry EsmondThe Virginians (I)The Virginians (II)The Adventures of Philip (I)The Adventures of Philip (II)Christmas BooksSamuel Titmarsh, The Great Hoggarty Diamond, A Little Dinner at Timmins's, Notes of a Journey from Cornhill to CairoThe Book of Snobs, Sketches and Travels in LondonBurlesquesThe Paris SketchbookThe Yellowplush Papers, The Fitz-Boodle Papers, Cox's Diary, Character SketchesThe Irish Sketchbook, Critical ReviewsThe Memoirs of Barry Lyndon, The Fatal BootsCatherine, Men's Wives, The Bradford Row ConspiracyBallads, The Rose and the RingRoundabout Papers (from the Cornhill Magazine), The Second Funeral of NapoleonThe Four Georges, The English Humourists of the Eighteenth CenturyLovel the Widower, The Wolves and the Lamb, Denis DuvalMiscellaneous Essays, Sketches and ReviewsContributions to PunchThis collection was first published in 1869 but lacked the final two volumes, which remained unpublished until 1886. This set was produced between 1883 and 1886 to provide a uniform set to accompanying these two scarce final volumes - often found wanting in many 19th century complete sets of Thackeray. Each volume features a number of engraved plates. Many are drawn by Thackeray himself whilst others are contributed by other illustrators of the day, including Frederick Walker, R. B. Wallace, George Cruikshank, F. Barnard and Luke Fildes. Several of the numerically earlier books also include engraved title pages, with volume I also containing an engraved frontispiece of Thackeray himself. Complete in 26 volumes. Condition: Uniformly bound in lovely full tree calf. Externally, smart with light wear to extremities and raised bands of backstrips. Rear board of volume I absent. Slight loss to rear board of volume XXIV. Of 52 hinges 12 are strained and one tender, front board of volume I held by cords only. Internally, firmly bound. Recto front free endpaper and adjacent blank arespotted but elsewhere pages are very bright and clean indeed with only the very occasional mark or spot. Binders' stamp to recto of front free endpaper of each volume. Overall: VERY GOOD with volume I being FAIR due to loss of board..

        To the Gold Coast for Gold, A Personal Narrative

      London: Chatto and Windus, 1883. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 2 volumes, pp. xii, 354; vi, 381, + ads, with 2 folding maps in Vol. I and a chromolithograph frontispiece in Vol. II. Recently rebound in full leather with raised bands, gilt stamping on spine and gilt ruling to boards; new endpapers. One folding map repaired, smal spot of damage to title page near gutter, mended on the verso with archival tape, evidence of erasure of a date stamp on dedication page near gutter; all else clean and sound."This work was an outgrowth of a trip Burton made with Cameron, who was the first European to cross central Africa (1873-75), to explore the Kong Mountains and search for gold in the valley of the Ancobra River" (Casada 65). The two men were commissioned by James Irvine of the Guinea Coast Mining Company to survey and report on his mining concessions. They did find gold and other precious metals and gemstones, and Burton offered a recommendation for an extraction method, but he failed to profit from the expedition as he had hoped. (Quentin Keynes Sale Catalogue; Penzer pp106-107, DNB). Provenance: From the collection of Burton scholar and bibliographer James A. Casada.

        The Bastilles of England; the Lunacy Laws at Work

      London: Crookenden and Co.,, 1883. Vol. I [all published]. Octavo. Original grey cloth, title gilt to spine and in black to the upper board, decorative frieze to both boards, grey on white floral sprigged endpapers A little rubbed, spine creased, light browning, else a very good copy. First edition of "one of the most powerful accounts of wrongful confinement" of the Victorian period (Homberger, "Wrongful Confinement", bbc.ac.uk). Despite institutional reforms in the late eighteenth century, the nineteenth century saw growing public displeasure with the laws surrounding insanity and the conditions in which patients were detained. With the development of the psychiatric profession and expansion of the definition of insanity, "the gap between eccentricity and moral insanity led to confusion over what behaviors and actions determined the existence of insanity. To the lay-public, the proliferation of new types of insanity led to an increased potential for wrongful confinement" and "generated impassioned discussion over the relationship between authority, individuality and civil liberties" (Homberger). Beginning in the 1850s, newspapers took up the cause and "scandals, abuses, and revelations of wrongful confinement appeared in the press on an almost daily basis". One of the most important of these was The Bastilles of England, "a scathing indictment of Britain's lunacy laws" (VictorianGothic.org) . The author, Louisa Lowe, was middle-aged and unhappily married to a clergyman when she became fascinated by spiritualism after attending a seance in 1869. Convinced that she was in communication with the spirits, she began professing unusual and sometimes shocking religious beliefs, and left her husband. He successfully had her institutionalised, and she spent eighteen months in three separate asylums, desperately trying to prove her sanity to the lunacy commissioners. They failed to act on the case until Lowe's husband initiated chancery proceedings to obtain control of her finances and she was transferred to an asylum nearer the courts in London, where a physician recognised that she was being held unreasonably. As a result she joined the growing lunacy reform movement and published her experiences, which compared asylums with "the Bastilles of pre-revolutionised France" where "the victims of the lunacy system silently sink below the surface of society; they disappear one by one, and are forgotten" (Lowe, preface). An attractive copy of an important personal testament against the use of the asylum system to "disappear" eccentric or marginalised members of society. Extremely uncommon, only 14 copies appear in OCLC.

        ARCTIC OIL WORKS SAN FRANCISCO. CAL

      [1883].. Oil on canvas, 18 x 26 inches, on original wooden stretcher, with letters in lower margin, after the lithographed view of the same title published by Bosqui. Very good. "Edward Bosqui was born in 1833 in Montreal, of French descent. When he was about seventeen years old he decided to go to California. He went by way of Panama, where like a good many others who headed for the Gold Rush in those days, he became stranded. He worked his way up through Mexico, a hazardous trip, but young Bosqui survived the many hardships....He arrived in San Francisco in the latter part of 1850, and his first job was as cashier of the first bank to be established there. Afterwards he served as General Fremont's secretary. He first went into the printing business in 1859 at Clay and Leidesdorff Streets and stayed at that location for thirty-nine years. Bosqui did bookbinding as well as printing and lithography....He printed the EVENING BULLETIN in the early days of its existence, and did a great deal of commercial label work" - Peters. The Arctic Oil Works was established on a Bay side pier between 17th and 16th streets in 1883 to produce refined oils from seals, whales, and elephant seals. Soon after opening, it became the largest oil refinery on the West coast. In 1902 the oil works became incorporated as part of Standard Oil. The painting is quite similar to the lithographed view, though more Impressionistic in style and without quite as much detail. The spelling mistakes in the address of the works ("Potrcro" instead of Potrero) and in the address of the offices ("ZB" instead of 28) further suggest this painting to be after the scarce lithographed view produced by Bosqui. The painting, however, shows considerable age and is on the original stretcher, and dates from the late 19th century. PETERS, CALIFORNIA ON STONE, pp.60-61. J. Russell Harper, EARLY PAINTERS AND ENGRAVERS IN CANADA, p.39.
