With 45 hand-colored plates in facsimile by William Muir, plus 3 pp. facsimile letter at end. 1 vols. 4to. Blake's Milton: the Muir Facsimile in Special Binding. Notes Bentley: "[Gilchrist's 'Life'] not only multiplied the prices of his works, but it encouraged the publication of facsimiles. Of these, the most ambitious, and the most conspicously successful, were those…produced at The Blake Press at Edmonton by William Muir and his family and friends. Twelve works in Illuminated printing were issued between 1884 and 1890, printed and coloured by hand at great trouble and with considerable success. … The size of the edition was small, but their influence was appreciable, and their scope has only been equalled in recent times by the facsimiles of the Blake Trust." The MILTON facsimile was made from Copy A (1804-08), the British Museum copy; it has 45 hand-colored plates. Muir includes a three-page facsimile letter from Blake to Hayley, dated March 16, 1804, explaining the poem. It is preceded by five pages of printed text, consisting of a letter by Muir to Prince Victor of Hohenloft-Langenburg, "Your Serene Highness, and my Kind Patron" describing Blake's career and work; it mentions that the Milton is "the most difficult" of the facsimilies he has done so far, and that it has taken two years to complete. Muir's price for this facsimile was ten guineas, the highest of any of his productions. REMARKABLE. RARE. Keynes 217f; Bentley pp. 28-9

        TYPES JAPONAIS Quarante Planches Dessinees et Lithographs DAI NIPPON TEIKOKU K

      Tokio 1886. Black cloth spine over original illustrated. boards, very solid, corner wear, 40 lithographic plates,[40]. pages, bookplate, 28.5 x 20.5 cm., tissue guards.. FIRST & ONLY EDITION. EARLY MEIJI PERIOD JAPANESE WOMAN ARTIST DRAWINGS OF JAPAN . . AN EXCELLENT AND RARE EXAMPLE OF A JAPANESE WOMAN ARTIST'S . . GRAPHIC WORK IN THE MEIJI PERIOD: . This is an RARE example of a Japanese woman's drawing and depictions of native Japanese life in the mid-1880's. . Each drawing is numbered, with caption, and signed by the artist in the stone. . All images are with buff background, and black outline sketched, with charming skill and sensitivity. . One is "signed" by the artist in Romaji with a back wards "n" in a quaint display of the "avant-garde" use of Western alphabet during the Meiji period. Obviously anyone etching anything on stone means the opposite or 'mirror image' is what turns out to be the print. When the artist signed her work its fully expected that her name would read back wards. All others are stone-signed in Romaji by her. . SUBJECTS OF THE DRAWINGS: . A very nice insight to the Japanese at their daily life, chores, activities and diversions, including Kendo [a kind of sword fighting practice], warriors, workers, musicians, nobility, a humble shoe maker, a hair dresser and a host of Japanese women wearing the traditional Kimono in their daily life activities. . *** WHO WAS THE ARTIST WATANABE YUKOH: . Watanabe Yukoh [1856-1942] was a painter, daughter of Goseda Horyu. Pupil of her father and of her brother, Yoshimatsu. Wife of Watanabe Bunzaburo. She exhibited her work at sponsored exhibitions. She taught Western-style painting at a girl's school, became a pioneer in women's education. Specialized in portraiture, but also made lithographs of Japanese genre scenes, this work is an excellent example. * The cover of this album shows a very nice example of a self-portrait of the artist in her studio, painting what looks like a Buddhist Monk or Shinto Priest. In the lower left are two cinnabar-red Hanko [seals], most likely her own Hanko [seals or chops]. . *** THE GENRE OF THE MEIJI PERIOD: At this very early time in Meiji Japan, there were very few women artists who openly produced and provided art work for her own book. This is a great example of a liberated and most independent-minded Japanese woman's production of examples of her art for the world audience. The title page is written in French, indicating consideration that her book would be distributed in France. Indeed a very rare example. . Few other Japanese women left their artistic in terms of a published and illustrated book, leaving her mark on this period in Japanese art history. *** REFERENCES: Yokohama Bijutsu Kan: BAKUMATSU, MEIJI NO YOKOHAMA TEN: YOKOHAMA 1859-1899: New Visions, New Representations, she is listed on pp. 131-132, diagram numbers 173-174, cited & illustrated. * ROBERTS, Laurance P.: A DICTIONARY OF JAPANESE ARTISTS: PAINTING, SCULPTURE, CERAMICS, PRINTS, LACQUER, lists her on p.194. * YOKOHAMA MUSEUM OF ART.:SELECTED WORKS FROM THE COLLECTION, 1989. see p.66-67,#29, with biography of the artist in English & Japanese. *** Color scans can be sent by email.

        SCIENTIFIC ROMANCES: [FIRST SERIES] .

      London: Swan Sonnenschein, Lowrey & Co., 1886 - Octavo, pp. [1-3] 4-229 [230: blank], original maroon cloth, front panel stamped in gold and ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, t.e.g., brown coated endpapers. First edition, the rare first issue with cancel title leaf, earliest binding with no star on spine panel and publisher's monogram at bottom of same. A collection of five science essays and stories first published by Sonnenschein in as five separate paperbound booklets between 1884 and 1886 and subsequently collected in a single clothbound volume published in 1886. C. H. Hinton was concerned with finding ways of expanding the mind beyond the confines it had been taught to accept as final. His interest in the fourth dimension was the outcome of this search. In the famous analogy, pioneered by Hinton himself in A PLANE WORLD (1886) and by Edwin A. Abbott in FLATLAND (1884), a being of two dimensions would not be able to perceive a three dimensional object, such as a cube, and would perceive it in two dimensions only, as a square. In the same way, a man is not able to perceive any four dimensional objects, and if any are encountered, he explains them in terms of the familiar three dimensions. Hinton's fate was to be the inspiration for other men. His SCIENTIFIC ROMANCES provided ideas that may have influenced the early work of H. G. Wells and his speculations on multi-dimensionality inspired the more famous speculations of P. D. Ouspensky. See Rudy Rucker, "Life in the Fourth Dimension: C. H. Hinton and His Scientific Romances," Foundation 18 (January 1980), 12-18. Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 1- 98 and (2004) II-530. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1097.
