Good Edith. Additional contributions by Frederick de Coninck Good and Clements Good
Offering:An exceptional Victorian scrap album of mounted, original watercolor portraits of family women and children with one leaf signed and one leaf initialed by the artist, Edith Good of Kingston upon Hull, East Yorkshire. The scrapbook is supplemented and enriched by nine leaves extracted from a planned scrap album by Edith Good's favorite brother, Frederick de Coninck Good, to which she contributed.Frederick Good's scrap album with its witty, narrative-rich lithograph and woodcut print ephemera done for family occasions was left unfinished because of his untimely death at age 34, from a self-inflicted gunshot (January 24, 1887). The artworks reflect and document the family's six generation history in Hull and three generations in Denmark. There are a total of 76 original works by Good family artists (47 watercolors (43 mounted), 16 drawings, 9 lithographs, and 4 woodcuts) + the embossed program for the 48th annual State Concert at Buckingham Palace celebrating Queen Victoria's reign. Dates: Artworks in the Edith Good album are undated but they were done ca. 1876-1890. Artworks of Frederick de Coninck Good are dated January 1880-September 1886. Edith Isabella Good [1849-1922]: was born July 14, 1849 in Kingston upon Hull, the third born, and second daughter of the 1846 union of Isabella Frost and Clements Good, Consul General for Denmark in Hull for fifty years (1846-96) and principal partner in the Hull shipping firm, Good, Flodman & Duncan.

[BANZARE 1929-30]. THOMSON, Sir C. Wyville and John MURRAY (general editors):
London, HMSO, 1887. Large quarto, viii, lxvi, 336 pages plus 73 superb lithographs (most of them of fish, many of them double-page, a few of them tinted). Original dark green cloth a little rubbed, scuffed and marked; an excellent copy, uncut and entirely unopened. Offered together with five other volumes of reports from this most important research expedition, namely 'Summary of Scientific Results' (Parts 1 and 2, 1895), and 'Zoology', Volumes 8, 28 and 32 (1883, 1888 and 1889). These five volumes are also large quarto, uncut and unopened in the original dark green cloth; there is minimal rubbing and bumping, the heads of the spines of three volumes are slightly snagged, and the occasional inner hinge is cracked but firm; overall, an excellent collection, containing numerous charts and over 150 plates (including more than 60 chromolithographs or tinted lithographs). These particular volumes have the unique distinction of having been at one time the 'Property of the British / Australian and New Zealand / Antarctic Research Expedition / of 1929-30' (Mawson's second expedition), with a four-line rubber stamp to that effect on the half-title and title page of each volume. The later (much smaller) ownership stamp of a university zoology department is at the head of these pages, as well as across the BANZARE stamp in most instances. Items with any expeditionary provenance are increasingly rare on the open market. [6 items].

UNIDENTIFED.
(1887). 32mo - over 4" - 5" tall. On offer is a superb, original ship-board journal kept by a British Royal Navy sailor in the late 19th Century. It is a handwritten volume, about 180 completely filled pages. The unidentified author is left England on board HMS Thalia, a Royal Navy warship. While the author of this journal is unknown from context, it is clear that he is not an officer. He works on the ships electrical systems. He notes at one point that his last visit to Malta had been seventeen years earlier. This would suggest that he may be a Petty Officer. Petty officers were seamen who had been "rated" to fill a particular specialist trade on board ship. He writes about daily tasks, notes the ship's position and the daily happenings on board. Working in Commanders cabin placing an extra electric light complete it during the afternoon and during the process a fire broke out on the mess deck in one of the circuits owing to a quantity of water getting into the wires, the fire bell rung but the flames were soon put out. ... We have heard the sad intelligence tonight that HMS Wasp is lost with all hands in Chinese waters. We sincerely hope the news is not correct. [Oct 14, 1887] (HMS Wasp departed Singapore on Sept 10th, 1887 and was never heard from again. She was lost with all hands.) In Gibraltar, they were tied up for a number of days.

DOROTHY HARTONG, CARRIE RABER
Uniontown / Greentown Ohio OH: (1887). 32mo - over 4" - 5" tall. On offer is a family archive of five [5] early Ohio diaries. Research suggests that the authors are cousins. Dorothy Hartong, of Greentown, Ohio writes the earliest diaries of 1887 and 1890. The other three [3] are handwritten by Carrie Raber of Uniontown, Ohio. We believe Carrie, who is often mentioned in the early diaries is the younger cousin who eventually returns to Uniontown, Ohio. She makes mention of travels from Uniontown to Congress Lake etc. What is very unique to this archive is the contrast in personalities. Dorothy is a pious and devout Church going girl who writes of her chores and duties to both the home and Jesus. This is a fascinating look at the devotion of a young girl. Interspersed is a wealth of historical details of the area and genealogy of north-east Ohio. Carrie on the other hand is much the same in her devotion to house and home and though she mentions Sunday School the odd time mostly she mentions missing it for the least of reasons. The dates of Carrie's diaries are 1892, 1907 and 1913. This is a huge family and between the two girls many, many dozens if not hundreds of names of visitors, attendees at events, deaths, funerals etc. would keep a researcher busy for a goodly long time. Three books are leather, the others are cloth or paper. Overall VG.. Book Condition: Very Good. Binding: Leather

ANTHONY, Susan B) STANTON, Elizabeth Cady, Anthony, Susan B., and Gage, Matilda Joselyn
Susan B Anthony, NY, 1887. Large 8vo, 878, 1013, 951. All three volumes are bound in publisher's sheep (front covers separate on volumes 1 & 2, tender on volume 3). Each volume is ex-library with small labels on the front covers and bookplates on the pastedowns. Volume 1 contains a small bookplate that says that the books were presented by Susan B Anthony, indeed Anthony has presented the set on the front blank which is almost separate: "To the Seymour Library Auburn, N.Y. With the hope that these volumes may have a conspicious place on its shelves - perchance be the nucleus of a woman suffrage alcove from Susan B Anthony Rochester N. Y. October 12, 1895" Volume two is inscribed: "The Seymour Library Auburn-Cayuga Co - N. Y. from Susan B. Anthony Rochester NY Oct. 14, 1895. Volume three is inscribed: "The Seymour Library Auburn-Cayuga County, NY from Susan B Anthony Rochester, NY Oct. 14, 1895." This is the official, in-depth, history that reprints letters, speeches, petitions, and all the rest. This is an extraordinary history that shows the organizers' penchant for detail and recognition that a complete history of the movement was not only desirable but essential. There are numerous internal documents, letters to conventions, speeches and the like that were not reprinted elsewhere. [Attributes: First Edition]

ANNIE OAKES HUNTINGTON
JAMAICA PLAINS HONG KONG BOSTON MASSACHUSETTS MA: (1887). Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. On offer is a simply fascinating original 1887 - 1905 manuscript journal and scrapbook of the young Annie Oakes Huntington. Annie has an absolutely amazing history especially given the era: Huntington was born in Jamaica Plains, Massachusetts in 1875. She was from the famed Boston Quincy family on her mother's side (Elizabeth Quincy Huntington), and her father, Elijah Hunt Mills Huntington, was a grandson of Senator Mills of Massachusetts. Huntington had an ambitious and seemingly happy childhood, a sick young adulthood, and then a few happy decades in a farmhouse with the woman she loved, Jeanette Payson [the famed American landscape architect]. Huntington [a botanist with an expertise in trees] grew up writing and publishing [in 1947 a book, A Testament of Happiness, Letters of Annie Oakes Huntington, was published] and this journal is, among many things, a testament to her literary prowess. Intriguingly the book is titled in a very strong hand 'Annie O. Huntington. Her book. Containing some private writings that are only of interest to her.' Below this is a frail and much weakened hand: 'People reading it therefore will please bear this in mind. AOH.' The journal contains meticulous lists: books read (quite sophisticated) and Huntington's thoughts about the books. She was a fan of Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, Sarah Orne Jewett and many other noted authors. There are a few pages related to palmistry. Pages of heraldic symbols, prizes received, and much more.

First edition, second issue. 8vo (226 x 155mm). xii, 350, [2], pp. Contemporary quarter calf with marbled paper covered boards, spine divided into five panels by blind and gilt rules, the second panel lettered in gilt, the rest with gilt fleurons, marbled edges, marbled endpapers (joints worn, spine faded top headcap missing). Leipzig, E.W. Fritzsch. The so-called ?definitive edition? of The Gay Science, being a reissue of the first edition sheets originally published by Teubner of Leipzig in 1882, the remainders of which were bought up Fritzsch in 1887. It was reissued with a new title page and two half titles and included the addition of a new ten-page Preface and a new fifth book, entitled ?We Fearless Ones?, to which is appended a collection of fourteen poems - the greatest number in any of his published works. According to Nietzsche, the fifth and final part ?was always planned but was never written because of my health problems? (quoted in Schaberg, p. 137). The final of Nietzsche?s great aphoristic works, the book contains the first concentrated exposition of Nietzsche's concept of the ?Eternal Return of the Same? that would come to the fore in Thus Spoke Zarathustra and also included the first printing of his infamous proclamation: ?God is Dead?

His library, 9404 lots, realized £15,509.4.6, a very considerable sum more than a hundred years ago. The principal treasures were historic Scottish and French gold-tooled bindings. The 32 chromo-lithographic plates reproduce bindings by Grolier (2), Henri II and Diane de Poitiers (2), Mary Queen of Scots (2), her husband the Earl of Bothwell, Duodo, De Thou (2), Longepierre, Hoym (2), Mme de Pompadour, Charles II of Spain, et al.

(table), carte autographe et enveloppe montées sur onglets. Edition originale de l'un des plus importants recueils de nouvelles de Guy de Maupassant. Exemplaire sur papier d'édition (après 40 ex. sur Hollande) enrichi d'une carte autographe signée de Guy de Maupassant (11,5 x 9 cm) avec ses initiales imprimées (enveloppe conservée) adressée à Amédée Bouchet, directeur et industriel elbeuvien qui désirait publier des extraits du Horla. "Monsieur et cher confrère, / Le Horla est un recueil de nouvelles. / Vous en pouvez reproduire ce qu'il vous . plaira si vous avez un traité avec la / Sté des gens de lettres dont je fais partie. / Recevez Monsieur et cher confrère / l'assurance de mes sentiments / très dévoués. / Guy de Maupassant". Bel exemplaire, intérieur très frais, dos éclairci. Étude d'une démence naissante, d'une lutte inutile contre une obsession dévorante, Le Horla fait également figure de document clinique : Maupassant avait suivi les cours de Charcot sur l'hystérie, il s'intéressait à l'hypnotisme et au magnétisme (le nom de Franz-Anton Mesmer est cité dans Le Horla, p. 28). Le recueil comporte treize autres récits qui comptent presque tous parmi les chefs d'oeuvre de Maupassant.

Stalin, Mao, Che, Castro — the icons and monsters of the modern age have all presented themselves as his heirs. Whether he would recognise them as such is quite another matter Nevertheless, within one hundred years of his death half the world's population was ruled by governments that professed Marxism to be their guiding faith. His ideas have transformed the study of economics, history, geography, sociology and literature. Not since Jesus Christ has an obscure pauper inspired such global devotion — or been so calamitously misinterpreted" (Francis Wheen, in his introduction to Karl Marx, 1999).

(Louis) Hemma, one of Mockel's many aliases; Mockel was the editor of the important journal of Belgian Symbolism La Wallonie (which he founded in 1886); Les Fumistes Wallons is Mockel's first published book, in which he affirms his commitment to Symbolism (he was later to write a study of Mallarme); this copy with a gift-inscription from Mockel to Emma Lambotte, which begins "A mon amiable confrere Emael" (Emael was Emma Lambotte's pen name) - unfortunately I can't make out the full inscription, but it seems to refer to this being Mockel's literary 'debut'; further under the sub-title, Mockel has made a note in pencil to the effect that the frontispiece illustration is by A. (Armand) Rossenfosse, a Belgian artist and book illustrator, who contributed drawings to La Wallonie; a unique copy of an exceptionally scarce title of European Symbolism (stating 'Il a ete lire de cet ouvrage vingt-cinq exemplaire sur papier de Hollande', ie one of an edition of only 25 copies); half-leather with raised bands and gilt-titling to spine - the binding being uniform with other titles from Lambotte's library; Emma Lambotte was a painter, writer, and influential art critic, who sometimes wrote under the name Emael, and was associated in particular with James Ens … [Click Below for Full Description]

RHODES, James Ford (1848-1927), his copy - Edward GIBBON (1737-1794)
John Murray, London, 1887. 8 volumes, 8vo. Frontispiece portrait in vol. 1 by Sir Joshua Reynolds, 12 folding maps. Near-contemporary brown half morocco, marbled boards, top edges gilt, by Little Brown & Co. A near-fine set with a few trifling areas of wear at ends of spines, two bumps to board edges, several minor creases to folding maps. Provenance: James Ford Rhodes (1848-1927), American industrialist and historian (signatures on titles of vols. 1 and 2 dated 1897, annotations); Felix O. Matton (bookplates). A FINE SET EXTENSIVELY ANNOTATED BY THE AMERICAN INDUSTRIALIST AND HISTORIAN JAMES FORD RHODES, who signed the first two titles in pencil and dated them in 1897; he notes in several volumes that he completed reading them in 1898-99. Rhodes's pencilled underlinings in the text and densely written pencilled notes on the front and rear endleaves, and on two titles, show a close reading of this edition of Gibbon's text. There are in total 70 pages of notes on the endleaves, all in the first six volumes, as follows: v.1: 11pp; v. 2: 13pp, and extensive notes on 7 pages of the table of contents; v.3: 14pp; v.4: 15pp; v.5: 7pp; v.6: 3pp (all at end). The Cleveland-born Rhodes earned his fortune in iron, coal, and steel and retired from business in 1885, afterwards dedicating himself to historical research. His 8-volume 'History of the Civil War' won the Pulitzer Prize in 1918. Rhodes expressed his admiration for Gibbon in 1899, soon after his reading of this set: "To my mind, one of the most charming things in historical literature is the praise which one great historian be … [Click Below for Full Description]
