MAUPASSANT Guy de
S.l. [Paris] s.d. [5 mai 1884], 10x12,9cm, 4 pp. sur un feuillet double. - S.l. [Paris] s.d. [5 mai 1884], 10x12,9cm, 4 pp. sur un feuillet double. - 70 linee in inchiostro nero, un disegno originale con inchiostro su un doppio foglio di intestazione "83, rue Dulong". [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Lettre autographe signée de Guy de Maupas­sant à la comtesse Potocka, 70 lignes à l'encre noire, agrémentée d'un dessin original à l'encre, sur un feuillet double à en-tête « 83, rue Du­long ». Enveloppe jointe. Maupassant a, des années durant, été l'un des sou­pirants les plus assidus de la comtesse Potocka. Il s'ap­prête à aller la voir sur invitation de son mari : « Vous savez, n'est-ce pas, que je dîne chez vous demain, invité par votre mari. » Son époux le comte Potocki vivait en totale liberté avec la comtesse, occupé qu'il était à entretenir la célèbre courtisane Émilienne d'Alençon, il ne s'offusqua pas des « Macchabées » de son épouse, son groupe de soupirants. Les « Macchabées » avaient érigé l'amour en reli­gion et ils en étaient les pénitents. Ainsi Maupassant écrit-il à la comtesse : « Il n'y a pas deux pénitentes comme vous, d'abord. Et puis j'ai qu'une péni­tente qui me fait plutôt l'effet d'une Directrice car je me sens disposé bien plus à lui obéir qu'à la conseiller. » Plus loin, alors qu'il décrit une soi­rée à laquelle il a assisté, il admet s'être abîmé dans la ferveur que la comtesse provoque chez lui : « Comme j'avais mon chapelet dans ma poche je me suis mis à en réciter une dixaine en répétant entre chaque « ave » - « Notre Dame de Vassivière, patronne du lac P … [Click Below for Full Description]

Robert Louis Stevenson
Roberts Brothers, 1884. Cover moderately soiled, book slightly canted. See photos. Corners bumped. Binding split with some sections of pages at split attached by threads (see photo), but all covers and pages still attached. One page of rear endpaper missing (see photo). Map is not included, although there is no evidence (e.g. a torn/page remnant at crease) that it was ever removed. This is a very rare 1st American & 1st illustrated edition, in its first printing state. This is validated by several points, including the fact that "Dead Man's Chest" is not capitalized on pages 2 and 7 (see photo of page 2), and the typo "rain" (instead of "vain") in the last line of page 40. (Subsequent printings corrected these errors.) Please note the red marks/arrows on photos are added digitally - they are not on the actual pages of the book! Gray cover with black design/text. Four B&W plates by F. T. Merrill. Cover moderately soiled, book slightly canted. See photos. Corners bumped. Binding split with some sections of pages at split attached by threads (see photo), but all covers and pages still attached. One page of rear patterned endpaper missing (see photo). Map is not included, although there is no evidence (e.g. a torn/page remnant at crease) that it was removed. Owners pencil inscription on blank front endpaper. This edition WITH the map sells for $5,000+ (if you can find one). I believe my Buy-It-Now price is fair, based on condition and missing map for this rare edition of a much-coveted literary work... but feel free to make me an offer! Approximately 5-1/2" x 7-1/2".

Charles L. Carson, 1884
1884. When ordering from the US, parcels may be subject to import tax and duty charges, which the buyer is responsible to pay. Up for sale is a set of architectural drawings from 1884. Design for Residence for Jacob D. Zouck, Esq. - Hanover, PA by Charles L. Carson, Architect, Baltimore, MD. Mr. Zouck was born in Baltimore County in 1837. He was married in 1884 to Alinnie F. Hauer, of Hanover, daughter of Rev. D.J. Hauer, prominent Lutheran minister. At the age of 42, Mr. Zouck became the President of the First National Bank of Hanover. Charles L. Carson (Nov. 3, 1847 - December 18, 1991), was an architect born in Baltimore, MD. He was the oldest son of Daniel Carson, a builder, and one of the founders of the Baltimore chapter of AIA. Charles had little formal training as an architect. Around 1870 he partnered with Thomas Dixon while taking lessons at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Carson and Dixon worked from their offices at 117 Baltimore Street as Thomas Dixon and Charles L. Carson until sometime before 1877 when the partnership was dissolved. In 1888 Charles hired Joseph Evans Sperry who become his chief assistant, and later his partner and successor. A number of his works are listed on the US National Register of Historic Places. The set includes several designs on vellum paper. The main house design is approximately 18" x 18" and shows the front elevation - this is currently paper clipped to cardboard.

ZOLA Émile
Le roman lui plaît « infiniment », et d'abord « cette gaieté débordante, outrée, roulant comme un ruisseau après une pluie d'orage », puis ce « défilé de caboches extraordinaires » : « l'originalité est dans ce côté caricatural, dans le déhanchement des personnages, auxquels on ne demande plus dès lors un équilibre dont ils font fi eux-mêmes »... Il relève plusieurs scènes « très réussies, d'un grand relief », dont le mérite est dans « la vérité du document, qui se trouve sous les moindres détails ». L'auteur a dû connaître tous les personnages et toutes les scènes : « c'est à peine si vous avez inventé les transitions nécessaires. Rien ne remplace cela, la chose vue, surtout lorsqu'on la rend avec votre sincérité, votre crânerie qui ne recule devant rien. Ah ! vous n'y allez pas de main morte, dans les faits et dans les mots ! Jamais encore on n'avait si carrément vidé ses tripes et fait la bête à deux dos, comme dit Rabelais ». Cependant il critique la composition du roman : il n'y a ni relief, ni perspective, tout est sur le même plan, chaque épisode a la même valeur, et « on n'a plus qu'un défilé de pages, on n'a pas un tout. - Hein ? Suis-je assez Boileau et La Harpe ! ». Passant au style, il se fait « pion », et critique sévèrement « le mot incorrect inutile, l'épithète de couleur qui va contre l'image, la torture de chic imposée à la phrase, et qui la rend obscure ». La prose est factice, affectée. « Saint-Simon dégorgeait sa bile, sans mettre des malices dans son écriture (...).Tandis que vous, avec vos disloquements, vous vous fichez du public, vous faites des effe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hodson, James Shirley
London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1884. First edition of this comprehensive Victorian guide to book illustration, featuring twenty-four specimens of modern print processes. A printer by trade, Hodson notes that popular techniques of illustration developed more rapidly in the nineteenth century than in the prior three hundred years of print history, and offers a practical guide to current methods, "including those which are mechanical and chemical, as well as those which are based upon the application of the discoveries of photography." The plates include original examples of traditional illustration processes (line engraving, etching), as well as newer ones like chromolithography, zincography, heliotype, and Woodburytype. A crisp, near-fine copy of an uncommon book. Single volume, measuring 8.5 x 5.5 inches: [8], 224, [6], 32. Original deep blue blindstamped pebbled cloth, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, black endpapers. Twenty-four plates, two mounted, three in color, demonstrating different printing processes; advertisements printed in red and black at rear. Royal Society of Arts stamp to title page and dedication page, ink annotation ("G3") to verso of front free endpaper. Occasional stray mark to binding.
