        Mémoire sur les Carmathes du Bahraïn et les Fatimides

      Leiden: E.J. Brill, 1886. Octavo. Modern blue-green library buckram, gilt-lettered spine, red-sprinkled edges, linen inner hinges. From the collection of British Arabist and colonial agent Col. S. B. Miles (1838–1914), with printed bookplate of Bath Municipal Reference Library to the front free endpaper and associated manuscript shelf-marks and blind-stamps as usual. Small hole to series title, the text unaffected, light toning, a very good copy. Second edition, revised and greatly expanded, of de Goeje's important study of the Qaramitah (Carmathians), a syncretic Shi'ite sect which revolted against the 'Abbasid Caliphate from their Bahraini stronghold in the ninth century CE. It was originally published in 1862 as the first volume of his four-part essay series, Mémoires d'histoire et de géographie orientales; this iteration, at some 232 pages, is almost twice the length of that edition. De Goeje's Mémoires was his principal work resulting from original research, as he is mainly remembered for preparing editions of Arabic texts. Here he prints the Arabic texts of important sources including Ibn al-Jawzi and Ibn Durayd, which he read in manuscript. Well-held in libraries, but rare in commerce, with no copies listed in auction records (and none of the first edition).

        JEWS AND JUDAISM. AN ADDRESS BY MORRIS JASTROW, JR., Ph.D BEFORE THE CONGREGATION RODEF SHALOM, DECEMBER 4, 1886.

      Edward Stern & Co.,, Philadelphia: 1886 - Original printed wrappers with wrapper title and imprint, as issued. 23, [1 blank] pp. Stitched, Near Fine. Inscribed, "With regards, Phila. Jan. 18- '87." Young Jastrow was "Lecturer" at Philadelphia's Rodef Shalom Congregation, founded in 1795 as the oldest Ashkenazi synagogue in the United States. His term of office nearing expiration, he explains here why he had declined re-election. "I stand here for the last time in my official capacity." Morris Jastrow Jr. was the son of the chief Rabbi of Rodef Shalom, Marcus Jastrow. Morris's Address is a significant, scarce explication of the growing debate among Jews about the place of Judaism in their American, increasingly assimilated lives. The Address, the New York Times reported three days later, "caused a sensation among the congregation" when Jastrow announced "that he had renounced Judaism and resigned his position." Although Rodef Shalom, under Marcus Jastrow's direction, had moved toward Reform Judaism, many remained impatient with "old-fashioned" rituals and beliefs that had been transplanted from Europe. Jastrow Jr. was one of those: here he explores the "divergent religious convictions" among Jews. In particular Jews differ about "the Divine Authority of the Bible" and the divine source of the Ten Commandments. Jastrow decides that he cannot continue his connection with a synagogue that does not permit conscientious objection to those fundamental premises. In doing so, he illuminates the emerging split among Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform Congregations in the United States. Singerman 3449.

        Methodus de conscribendis epistolis, . secundum veram artis rationem tradita .Cologne, heirs of Arnold Birckmann, 1570. Small 8vo (15.5 x 10.5 cm). Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment, traces of thong ties.

      - Adams M76; Bibl. Belg. M89; CLC M65; Jacoby, Georg Macropedius (1886) 11b; USTC 675855; VD16 L404. The second Cologne edition of two of the most important sixteenth-century textbooks on the art of letter writing, by Macropedius (along with two smaller works) and Hegendorf, often published together. Georgius Macropedius or Joris van Lancvelt (1487-1558) devoted a lifetime of hard work to teaching in the schools of the Brethren of the Common Life. By 1510 he had begun teaching at Bois-le-Duc and his Asotus, the first of the Latin School plays for which he is best known today, was composed there. Mascropedius was ordained as a priest and went on to teach at Liege (ca. 1525-1529) and Utrecht (ca. 1529-1556). In addition to the twelve plays, he published Latin School songs and textbooks on grammar, dialectic and prosody (two of these smaller works are included in this edition).With an early owner's name struck through on the title-page, a couple marginal annotations and a few brief passages underlined. Ten lines of a sample letter concerning theology on P1v have been marked for cancellation and a blank slip pasted over them, but the text can still be read through the slip. With a tear along the fold of the title-page and a few small and mostly marginal worm holes, very slightly affecting the text in 2 quires, but otherwise in good condition, with the title-page slightly dirty and the corner of one leaf torn off, not affecting the text. It is nearly untrimmed, with an occasional deckle preserved. The binding is wrinkled, with a few small tears and lacking most of the ties.

        Little Tom the Sailor. [facsimile by Walker]

      Printed for & sold by the Widow Spicer of Folkstone for the Benefit of her Orphans, [London: c.1886] 54.3 x 22.5 cm., single sheet, photo-zincograph printed on French laid paper watermarked [P] le BAS; some browning from the mat but the image clear, a few creases but very good. In a period frame. The very fine William Muir/Emery Walker facsimile, often mistaken in the past for the original though the absence of a plate mark alone suffices to denote the facsimile. Originally etched in relief and white line by Blake on four plates, printed in black ink, uncolored; copies are also known hand colored or printed in brown ink. This is one of Blake's rarest works; it is also amongst the rarest of Blake facsimiles. It is found on five different papers, one as issued in The Hobby Horse and four others separately - this is one of the separate issues (Keynes issue v) and the only copy I have ever seen. Although it seems that this was produced by Emery Walker for The Hobby Horse and that William Muir the facsimilist of so many Blake illuminated books was also involved (copies as late as 1926 were issued from Quaritch colored by Muir), it is not know whether the four kinds of paper used for printing other than the paper for the Hobby Horse edition were experimental printings prior to landing on the Dickinson paper or later printings for an unknown purpose. Keynes does note that the original print used for this reproduction was much more lightly inked than any other known original printings, and it remains to this day untraced. Bentley, Blake Books, 470D. Keynes, Blake Studies, 2nd ed., p. 110 #v. With regard to the untrace original from which this was taken, Essick wrote: "it was based on an original in the collection of the Gilchrist family, now untraced. Anne Gilchrist died in Nov. 1885 and the original Little Tom probably passed by inheritance to her son, Herbert H. Gilchrist. His name appears at the end of the two-page note on Little Tom published in the Oct. 1886 issue of The Century Guild Hobby Horse with the facsimile bound-in. This note gives a brief description of "the impression from which our present reproduction is taken" (p. 159), but he does not specifically state that he owns that original."

        The Pilgrims of Hope.

      Privately printed by H. Buxton Forman but circa 1897 1886 - FIRST BOOKFORM EDITION, title-page with tipped-in signature of the author, pp. 69, crown 8vo, original grey wrappers printed in black to front, the backstrip sunned with a couple of horizontal hairline cracks and nicked at head, good. An association copy of the first order, inscribed on the flyleaf 'With friendly regards' by H. Buxton Forman, the printer and perpetrator of this piracy, to Sydney Cockerell - Morris's friend and secretary, who became his executor and was the first to raise notes of concern about the legitimacy of this publication. The book was sent to Cockerell after he questioned its nature upon seeing it advertised in a Jones & Evans catalogue - was it, he enquired of Buxton-Forman, 'an unauthorised reprint'? The latter confirmed the suspicion and acknowledged culpability, but took it as an opportunity to continue to glorify his own enterprise - though with the mixture of arrogance and unease that characterises also his Preface to the work. Cockerell's doubts regarding the activities of his friend's eminent bibliographer were ratified by the subsequent exposé conducted by Carter and Pollard in their 'Enquiry', and then - with sustained attention to the present work - by Barker and Collins in their 'Sequel' thereto, where its status as a posthumous piracy (purporting to be a lifetime publication and printed with the author's consent) is established beyond all doubt. Given the specious nature of the production, the presence of the tipped-in signature is an oddly jarring appendage, somewhat of a piece with the 'made-up' quality of the work. (Buxton Forman 93; Barker & Collins pp. 207-8)

        Memoirs of Samuel Phelps [Extra illustrated with associated playbills and ephemera]

      London: Remington and Co., 1886.. EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED. In two volumes. Large folio, pp.200; pp.201-331. Pages of the original book disbound and mounted on large thick card, interleaved with over 100 playbills and posters, many shakespearean, as well as numerous portraits, engravings etc. In recent navy half morocco with raised bands, gilt titles to spines and blue cloth boards. Very good indeed. One of the most significant and versatile actors of the mid-ninteenth century, Phelps' most enduring legacy continues to be the huge success of the Shakespearean plays he staged at the Sadler's Wells theatre in Islington during the 1840's and 50's. Though Shakespeare had been performed throughout the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, these performances were typically adaptations by the likes of Nahum Tate, Colley Cibber and David Garrick. Phelps staged many of his plays using the original text for the first time in over a century, and in some cases since their premiers at the Globe. He was also responsible for the revival of several plays which had not been performed at all for over a century, including 'Anthony and Cleopatra' and 'Pericles'. This unique compilation contains hundreds of original playbills, as well as engravings and contemporary newspaper clippings charting Phelps' remarkable career from as early as 1837.

        PHANTOM LOVER: A FANTASTIC STORY ..

      Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1886.. Small octavo, pp. [1-2] [1] ii [3] 4-134, original mustard cloth, front and spine panels stamped in red. First U.S. edition. "Of Lee's best fiction, only two stories are set outside of Italy. In its quiet way, the earlier of these -- first published in booklet form as A PHANTOM LOVER (1886) and subsequently in HAUNTINGS (1890) as 'Oke of Okehurst' -- is as much a tour de force as her flamboyant Don Juan fantasy "The Virgin of the Seven Daggers" (written 1889; published in FOR MAURICE, 1927). Perhaps somewhat undervalued because of its drenched, tepid English setting, and because its protagonists are at least superficially routine creations, 'Oke of Okehurst' nevertheless demonstrates that its author, in 1886, breathed the same literary atmosphere as Henry James and was capable of anticipating some of his explorations into the relationship between the narrator and what he narrates ... If the contemporary reader detects an adumbration here of Henry James's 'The Turn of the Screw' (1898), he is unlikely to be misguided. 'Oke of Okehurst' depicts a folie a trois, and the reader is left as ambivalent about what truly happened as he is clearly meant to be in the later tale. Lee's novella can only gain by being read as an early tour de force in the presentation of an unreliable narrator. In this light, a quiet, overextended anecdote can be seen as a tale of genuine horror" - John Clute, Bleiler (ed), Supernatural Fiction Writers: Fantasy and Horror, pp. 331-32. "Her first important supernatural fiction ... Along with the later 'The Turn of the Screw' (1898) by her friend Henry James, A PHANTOM LOVER fits remarkably well into Tsetvan Todorov's definition of the fantastic. A painter becomes obsessed with the similarity (almost certainly a matter of his own perception) between the woman he is painting and her ancestor, who was involved in a family tragedy. By the end of the tale, he has generated an uncanny further tragedy." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 570. "The tale is very subtly told and is by no means clear. Is it a story of marital discord, petty sadism, and madness? Is there really a ghostly lover? Is Mrs. Oke possessed? What share does the artist have in the events? Lee is not easily pinned down." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 256. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 114.

        [Horae] Livre de Prières Tissé d'après les enluminures des manuscrits du XIVe au XVIe siècle; illustrated book on silk, in Latin and French

      RARE BLACK AND SILVER SILK MACHINE-WOVEN ILLUSTRATED BOOK OF PRAYERS USING THE JACQUARD SYSTEM OF PUNCHED CARDS, SEEN AS THE PREDECESSOR TO THE MODERN COMPUTER. Illustrated book on silk in Latin and French, Lyon, c 1886-1887. 175 x 138 mm. 43 numbered pages, plus 6 printed preliminary pages. ONE HALF-PAGE AND THREE FULL-PAGE ILLUSTRATIONS, with various styles of decorative borders and initials throughout. The Jacquard system of punched-cards anticipated the advent of computer programming and automation by producing images in uncanny detail. BINDING: Fine binding of dark brown levant morocco by Kaufmann Petit, art nouveau Parisian binders. TEXT: This is the only illustrated book ever successfully woven on a machine loom, and was produced in a single edition. Using the punch-card system of the Jacquard looms, it took two years and nearly 50 trials to successfully complete. The production won prizes in its day, and this system served as the primary inspiration for the famous "Analytical Engine" conceived by Charles Babbage (1791-1871) who is often considered to be the "father of the computer". ILLUSTRATION: Every page is surrounded by border decoration of considerable variety, with the full-page illustrations and one half-page illustration. The illustrative program draws widely on fresco panting of the Italian Renaissance and French manuscript illumination by Jean Bourdichon and the Duke of Berry. Its content exemplifies nineteenth-century attitudes toward manuscript illumination. PROVENANCE: Woven on silk looms in Lyon, this is one of 50 or 60 books printed with silver and black thread that were designed by R.P.J. Hervier and fabricated by J.A. Henry for A. Roux. More recently, it was in the library of Jacques Levy. CONDITION: Pristine condition, with marbled slipcase and chemise. Full description and photographs available.

        Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám, the Astronomer-Poet of Persia

      Boston & London: Houghton Mifflin and Company [&] London: Bernard Quaritch, [1886?]. Rendered into English Verse by Edward Fitzgerald with an Accompaniment of Drawings by Elihu Vedder. Square folio (390 x 313 mm). Finely bound by Bayntun of Bath in contemporary olive morocco, with the spine and front of the original cloth bound in at the rear, spine gilt in compartments with titles direct, spine and front board decorated with gilt tooling and coloured morocco onlay, rear board panelled with gilt rules, board edges and turn-ins gilt, green moiré silk endpapers, all edges gilt. Frontispiece, decorative title page, colophon, dedication, divisional title, 48 plates illustrating the text, 3 pages of notes within decorative borders (a total of 56 plates complete). Covers largely faded to tan, headcap with some small loss, some other scuffs and mark, and a damp stain to front board, occasional spotting within but on the whole clean, a very good copy. A very attractive Bayntun-bound copy of Vedder's Rubaiyat with an intriguing provenance, this an early UK issue giving Bernard Quaritch as co-publisher (first published in Boston and dated 1884 - Potter, in his bibliography of the Rubáiyát, mentions an issue of the first edition with the Quaritch imprint but does not enlarge on whether or not it is dated). This copy comes from the library of Lt. Colonel Thomas Herbert Lewin (1839-1916), who was an administrator in colonial India and author of several relating books (The Hill Tracts of Chittagong, 1869; The Wild Races of South-Eastern India, 1870; Progressive Colloquial Exercises in the Lushai dialect of the Dzo or Kuki Language, 1874; A Manual of Tibetan, 1879; A Fly on the Wheel; or, How I Helped to Govern India, 1912). Lewin was superintendent of police in the Bengal frontier, but made a name for himself as a linguist and ethnologist, with a talent for going native. His biography (Thangliena by John Whitehead, 1993) notes that he once befriended a local tribe by claiming kinship with its chief, whose name was Twekan Tongloyn ("Tom Lewin"). Lewin has annotated the text throughout with comments and alternative translations. This copy was later inscribed, in the year of his death, by his wife to his son: "Charles McLean Lewin, with love, Margaret Lewin, July 11 1916". The son was a Captain in the Queen's Own Hussars, who survived the war but died in 1919. Elihu Vedder (1836–1923) was an American Symbolist artist who trained in New York, Paris, and Italy and became friends with authors such as Herman Melville and Walt Whitman. Strongly influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, as well as the mysticism of William Blake and W. B. Yeats, Vedder became known for his allegorical paintings of women and was also commissioned to produce glassware and sculptures for Tiffany. The first edition of this Rubáiyát was so popular that it sold out in six days, and it made Vedder's name as a leading American illustrator.

The first book by S.R. Crockett (1860-1914), a collection of poetry written under the pseudonym "Ford Berêton," published just as Crockett was ordained into the Church of Scotland.

A good Scottish literary association copy: on the half-title is the ownership signature and address of William Sharp, a.k.a. "Fiona Macleod," a contemporary and almost certainly acquaintance or friend of Crockett's.
