Hodson, James Shirley
Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, London, 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. This copy is inscribed by the author in the year of publication, and includes an autograph letter signed by Hodson: "I have much pleasure in asking your acceptance of a copy of my book on 'Art Illustration,' & at the same time to thank you for your valuable contribution.' A crisp, near-fine copy of an uncommon book, inscribed by the author. 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. Ink presentation inscription by Hodson facing title, autograph note of presentation laid in. Joints lightly rubbed, spine ends bumped. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

LE FANU, J. Sheridan (1814-73).
London: Richard Bentley and Son, 1884. [Strange tales] FIRST ONE-VOLUME EDITION. Octavo (19 x 14cm), pp.viii; 471; [1], advertisements. Contemporary red half morocco over combed marbled sides, gilt titles and rules to spine, speckled edges. Owner name and date (1886) to flyleaf, toned to same, some acceptable wear to binding. Loosely inserted programme for a later theatrical production of Le Fanu's vampire tale Carmilla. A used yet presentable, robust copy of an absolute classic. An important book; the triple decker first edition (1872) is excessively scarce and we have handled just one copy in a decade; this single volume edition is also proving elusive, ours being the only copy available at the time of cataloguing.

FLATLAND 1ST EDITION, 1ST PRINTING 1884 EDWIN ABBOTT (A SQUARE) Seeley and Co, London 1884 First Edition, First Printing: A very good soft cover first edition of this extremely rare and fragile title. Still in publication today. An absolutely amazing story. The unrestored book is a very fragile soft cover published in 1884 which was published with a thin "skin" like tissue dust jacket/cover and as such has several missing chips most notably to the upper and lower spine, and tears to the outer wraps. The binding is tight and all pages are firmly bound and present. First blank page has a few tears. Rough cut page edges as published. The internal pages are actually quite clean and with no stains, no writing, no bent pages and no soiling. No foxing but to the end papers and to the last page in the book. A very scarce and fascinating 132 year old softcover book. 8.75" x 7.5" Perfect for the theoretical science lover, or lover fantasy and imagination. Please note the cost to ship reflects the actual cost to ship using USPS, and the cost of insurance at the USPS rate of $1.00 per $100.00 of value. The cost of insurance is reflected as a handling charge on your invoice, but is only the cost to fully insure the book. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]

This important text received the "official Catholic" imprimatur from many Masonic Cardinals and Bishops. This means they have read and endorsed this publication with the authority of their offices. This is the book that proves the multiple Jesus deception, a Masonic trick referrred to as "The DaVinci Code". In the text of Sec. II "HISTORICAL BOOKS" you'll find that Moses changed the name of his Masonic brother Josue to Jesus, which is one the primary objective of the Illuminati - to rewrite the story of God's time on Earth (the Liturgy of the original Catholic Mass) with the confusing parables one of their own Masonic brothers, an actor....

A History of Greece; From the Earliest Period to the Close of the Generation Contemporary with Alexander the Great
1884. Rare to find this work complete, in 12 volumes. A fascinating piece of European history for those interested in Ancient Greece, or indeed the author and politician, George Grote. Born in Kent in 1794, Grote was a English classical historian, best known for his work 'A History of Greece'. Passionate about Politics, he was considered somewhat of a radical, taking a keen interest in John Stuart Mill's Utilitarian Society. Indeed his first published work was entitled 'Statement of the Question of Parliamentary Reform', and called for radical changes to the British political system. He would later serve three parliaments as an MP before the support in his party 'The Philosophical Radicals' subsided, and he eventually resigned. The bookplate of English baronet 'Sir Fresham Lever, Bt' to front pastedown of each volume. Bound by Mudie, with binders stamp to the reverse of the front endpaper of each volume. Collated complete, with all folding maps present and in excellent condition. CONDITION In a uniform full calf binding, with gilt detailng. Externally, smart. Rubbing to the head and tail of the spine, raised bands, joints and extremities. This has resulted in a small amount of loss to the front and rear board of all volumes, heaviest to the front board of volume X, toward the front joint. Previous owners bookplate to the front pastedown of each volume. Internally firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean, with the odd spot throughout each volume. Binder stamp to the reverse of the front endpaper of each volume. Overall Condition: Very Good Indeed.

BURTON, Richard F.
London: Chatto and Windus, 1884. Large octavo. Original grey cloth, spine lettered and decorated in brown and gilt, front cover decorated in brown with crossed-sword motif and arabesques, edges untrimmed, black coated endpapers. Bookseller's ticket partially removed from front pastedown. Spine gently rolled, lightly toned, rubbing to extremities, minor wear to very tips, small mark to front cover, a couple of bumps to rear cover; a very good copy. With numerous illustrations throughout the text. First edition. As early as 1923 Penzer considered this book "very scarce", and it is today surprisingly uncommon in the original cloth. Burton, a master fencer, intended it to be the first part of a comprehensive three-volume work on the sword, but he suffered a heart attack shortly after publication, and parts II and III, which are referenced throughout the book, remained incomplete at the time of his death in 1890 and were never published.

New York: E.A. Buck, Editor and Publisher, Saturday, Dec. 27, 1884. [657]-696pp. Magazine. 15¾ x 11 inches. Full-page cover illustration by Alfred Thompson; illustrated ads. Lightly dust-soiled at center fold line; near fine condition. Rare first appearance of Wilkie Collins' short story "The Girl at the Gate" published in New York in December 1884 before its January 1885 appearance in "The English Illustrated Magazine." "The Girl at the Gate" was explicitly written for this special December 27, 1884 "Christmas Spirit" issue of The Spirit of the Times, The American Gentleman's Newspaper. It was later reprinted as "Mr. Lepel and the Housekeeper" in the book Little Novels, a collection of Collins' short stories published in 1887 toward the end of his life. The narrator of the story declares, "One of my objects in writing these lines is to vindicate the character of an innocent woman (formerly in my service as housekeeper) who has been cruelly slandered." (p658) Set in Italy, the short story concerns a love triangle, a mysterious illness, and poisoned medicine. The story is notable for its positive portrayal of Roman Catholicism, a priest playing a minor role in the plot. Contemporary English ".critic Edmund Yates wrote an article on Collins's fiction, suggesting that it was exceeded only by that of Dickens, Thackeray, and Charlotte Brontë." (ODNB) Collins, a collaborator with Charles Dickens at the magazine Household Words, had, like Dickens, toured and given public readings in America. The American audience for "The Girl at the Gate" would have been familiar with Collin's no … [Click Below for Full Description]

Saudelet, A. Howard
Brattleboro, Vermont: , 1884-1885. Brattleboro, Vermont, 1884-1885. With limp manuscript slipcase/chemise. Good. 23 by 17 cm, stab bound above by ribbon. 11 card leaves, including front cover, all painted, mostly with silhouettes. Front cover, with a period aesthetic style design, has Greek ornamentation and other period vignette illustrations, does not have silhouette illustrations, and a few elements of illustration elsewhere are not silhouette. That said, we count 26 silhouette illustrations, which count might be adjusted slightly up or down on one's judgment of whether something is a separate illustration or not, with a few additional silhouette drawings on the chemise slipcase. Generally the illustrations are clever and humorous, and the combination of those on a single leaf can relate a coherent narrative like a comic strip, a form that had as yet not been created in newspapers but which did have prior roots, most notably with Topffer's comical multi-cell illustrations. Condition: slipcase ribbon edge somewhat tattered and partly loose on bottom edge. Considerable wear and spotting on this slipcase, yet its pictorial integrity remains well preserved. Ribbon used to bind the manuscript proper replaced. Cloth used along upper edge as repair material to recreate holes of stab binding.
