        ENCUADERNACIÓN DE MARIUS MICHEL

      1888 - Materia: Encuadernación artistica de Marius Michel. Publicación: París; A la Libraire de l'Art, 1888. Descripción: Folio Mayor. (35 cm.) xxvii., 289 p. 6 aguafuertes y 143 dibujos de Eugéne Lambert. Encuadernación plena piel firmada por Marius Michel. Edition a 100 exemplaires, sur Japón [nº 81]. Estado de conservación: Muy buen ejemplar. Notas: Marius michel, Henri. Encuadernador francés (1864 ? 1925), con taller en París. Su trabajo como copista en el taller de su padre no le satisfacía y reaccionó contra el pulido, las técnicas tradicionales del marroquín, los papeles de peines, las copias de decoraciones hechas cincuenta años atrás y, en general contra todo aquello que paralizara la evolución de la encuadernación de arte. Marius michel introdujo el lenguaje modernista vegetal en las decoraciones de las encuadernaciones, en la que se reflejaba ese fenómeno de ósmosis con la naturaleza propia del art nouveau. Creó decoraciones basadas en la utilización hábil de una flor ornamental acompañada, en algunas ocasiones, de un emblema discreto Se trata de una flor interpretada para cada libro. Por primera vez, estableció la necesidad de armonía entre la decoración de la encuadernación y el alma del libro así como la obligación de rechazar todo tipo de copia o pastiche. Consagrado en la Exposición Universal de París de 1900, reunió en su taller a los mejores profesionales del momento, entre los que destacaba Georges Cretté. ESS1

      [Commandery of the State of Indiana] 1888-1922, [Indianapolis] - 8vo. Cloth. The Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, begun in Philadelphia in 1865, was modeled on the Society of the Cincinnati, and formed to protect the republic amid rumors of a plot to destroy the government after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

A few other items such as registers of members, etc, bound in. A wealth of information and a very scarce collection, which would be nearly impossible to assemble today.

      iv+380 pages with illustrations, diagrams, tables, and index. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 6 1/4") bound in half brown leather with gilt lettering to spine and blue marbled boards. From the library of Dino Ruggieri. Volume XIII (13). (Betts: 7-25). First edition.The Chess Monthly of Great Britain was one of the first to give properly annotated games. The principal editor, Leopold Hoffer, was helped enormously by having J H Zukertort as co-editor until his death in 1888. There were four regular sections: news, annotated games, problems and endgames. In addition, Hoffer carried on a profoundly bitter feud with his one-time benefactor, Steinitz. This publication should not be confused with The Chess Monthly published in the United States which was short lived from 1857-1862 and edited by Fiske and Morphy.Dino Ruggieri was born in, Pigüé a small city in the Buenos Aires province, October 22, 1921. His parents were both Italians, natives of Porto D'Ascoli. In their early years in Argentina, the Ruggieri?s family lived in the country, located about 45 miles from Pigüé. The family was engaged in agriculture. When Ruggieri was 8, his father purchased a home in Pigüé, where he lived until 2008. In 1938 he was involved in an accident and he was transferred to Buenos Aires for recovery. This was the beginning of his hobby of chess, both as a player over the board and by correspondence, but as well as a major collector of chess materials. After his recovery he became a prominent local chess player and very good representative in postal chess, where he represented Argentina in matches against Italy, Yugoslavia, Holland and other countries. He was using the correspondence with his rivals to offer exchanges. Ruggieri was related to Mr Niemeijer and soon began exchanging materials and making important purchases. He also had frequent contacts with Gregorio Lastra, Normando Ivaldi, Gaspar Soria and Carlos De Veyga, all known collectors of chess. He died in 2009 at the age of 88.Condition:Corners bumped, Ruggieri's stamp to front end paper, some foxing else a very good copy of a scarce item.

        The Ristigouche and Its Salmon Fishing. With a Chapter on Angling Literature

      Edinburgh: David Douglas, 1888. First edition, Number 97 of 105 copies, initialed by the Publisher. Folio. Aquatint title-page partly printed in red after G.Reid by Annan and Swan, aquatint frontispiece after Reid by Annan and Swan, 16 etched plates after and by Stephen Parrish, Mrs. A.L. Merritt, C.A. Platt, H. Sandham, and others on japan paper, 63 etched, engraved, and wood-engraved headpieces, tailpieces, historiated initials, vignettes, and other ornaments after and by Merritt, Platt, J. Adam, and others, double-page lithographed map after and by J. Bartholomew on japan paper. Original olive green cloth with salmon and osprey design on upper cover, decorative endpapers. Slightest toning to head of spine, with a trace of rubbing, and some foxing. In full green cloth slipcase with black morocco label and chemise. Heckscher sale (1909) lot 1681 ($180.00); Catalogue de la bibliothèque de pêche de M.G. Albert Petit (1921), no. 1861; Phillips p. 328; Gee, Sportsman's Library p. 100; Sherwin sale (1946) lot 428; Wetzel p. 206; Bruns S-4; Litchfield p. 58; Hampton (2008) p. 245; Bibliotheca Salmo Salar 117 . A book of almost legendary beauty, rarity, and importance, recounting the author's adventures at Camp Harmony on the Restigouche River in New Brunswick, and drawing upon his long experience fishing the river. Dean Sage's contributions to angling literature are few in number but profoundly influential: "Ten Days' Sport on Salmon Rivers", published in the Atlantic in 1875, is a classic account. His library catalogue (2 vols.,1896, 1904) remains an important document in the history of angling bibliography and collecting. Sage's section on "The Atlantic Salmon," in Salmon and Trout (1902), is a synthesis of his own first hand knowledge as a fisherman and his assessment of the extensive literature. The Ristigouche and Its Salmon Fishing remains the work for which Sage is best known. One of the pinnacles of nineteenth century fishing book design and production

        Le Costume Historique (6 volumes)

      Firmin-Didot et Cie., Paris 1888 - Book. Elephant Folio - over 15. This is the much less common folio version of this work, with each of 6 volumes measuring 16.5 by 12.5 inches, or 42 by 32 cm. With 500 plates, 300 using color chromolithography. This copy is about as as good as it gets. Modern half morocco over green boards is pristine. Five thick raised bands on each spine, with gilt lettered labels. Traditional Victorian endpapers. All bindings are tight. Interiors are about as clean as can be, notwithstanding the most occasional and lightest of speck. This is one of the most elaborate and detailed costume books ever produced, if not the single most ambitious such work. It is still an invaluable reference, but it functions fabulously well simply as visual entertainment, and the plates contained herein have found their ways to many a print shop where they have been framed and later hung on walls as decoration. As not uncommon among costume books, Racinet also serves up a healthy helping of accessories and interiors throughout the ages. Like Racinet's other masterpiece, "L'Ornement Polychrome", the chromolithography of this work is exceptionally brilliant. [Attributes: First Edition]

        NORTH AGAINST SOUTH

      1888 - A Tale of the American Civil War. With Numerous Illustrations. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1888. Original blue-grey cloth pictorially decorated in black and red. First British Edition of this adventure tale taking place during the American Civil War. This is the tale of the antagonism between Burbank (an anti-slavery Northerner now living near Jacksonville, Florida) and Texar (a pro-slavery Southerner); Texar winds up kidnapping Burbank's daughter and hiding her in the Everglades, and Burbank heads off in search of his daughter -- all as the Civil War rages around them.~NORD CONTRE SUD came out in France in 1887, and by the end of the summer of that year the American pirate publisher George Munro came out with TEXAR'S VENGEANCE in his wrappered Seaside Library. In November 1887, Rand McNally published a hardbound American edition (a different translation) titled TEXAR'S REVENGE. Then this British edition, hardbound and illustrated and the same translation as Rand McNally's, came out in December 1887 (though dated 1888). These were soon followed by Worthington's (New York) 1888 edition of TEXAR'S REVENGE. The book did not get good reviews in America: the New York Daily Tribune wrote,~[In Jules Verne's] story of "Texar". a very thin streak of narrative is padded to almost unwieldy proportions by a quantity of remarkably inaccurate information about the rebellion. If anyone thought the game worth the candle it would be easy to point out the various comical inaccuracies in the historical part of the story. [quoted in T&M]~This copy is in the deluxe binding style, with all edges gilt; its condition is very good -- spine a bit sunned as always, volume slightly askew. This is a Verne title that we seldom see. Taves & Michaluk V033. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE FLIGHT TO FRANCE

      1888 - Or The Memoirs of a Dragoon. A Tale of the Days of Dumouriez. With Numerous Illustrations. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1888. One preliminary page undated ads (with this title the last added). Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black. First British Edition, also the first hardbound and first illustrated edition in English, published the year after the French edition titled LE CHEMIN DE FRANCE. This tale takes place during the 1792 defense of France under General Dumouriez against the invading Prussians -- culminating in the "cannonade of Valmy." This was one of Verne's most anti-German tales (along with THE BEGUM'S FORTUNE); to quote from a contemporary British review (cited by T&M),~This is a dangerous theme for a French writer, especially now, when the national feeling runs so high against all that is German. The writer delights to seek in the past a literary revenge for recent disasters, as it seems not to be likely to come in the immediate future. It somewhat mars our enjoyment to hear, so to speak, throughout the gnashing of teeth whenever anything German is mentioned. ~The actual first edition of this title in English was published in wrappers in Toronto, by October 1888; this Sampson Low edition was next, published the following month. In the same month, a wrappered American edition was published by Frank Lovell.~This copy is in the secondary binding of green cloth decorated entirely in black (and thus lacks one of the best features of the primary binding, the gilt "streaks of rain" across the front cover scene). Condition is fine except for a cracked front endpaper. Taves & Michaluk V032; Myers 21. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Personal Memoirs of P. H. Sheridan

      New York:: Charles L. Webster & Company,, 1888. . A Near Fine set with just a touch of edge wear in fresh mylar protective jackets. . The gilt lettering and cover decorations are bright. Philip Sheridan was a Union general in the Civil War and his career was noted for his rapid rise to major general and his close association with Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant. Grant transferred Sheridan from command of an infantry division in the Western Theater to lead the Cavalry Corps of the Army of the Potomac in the East. In 1864, he defeated Confederate forces in the Shenandoah Valley and his destruction of the economic infrastructure of the Valley, called "The Burning" by residents, was one of the first uses of scorched earth tactics in the war. In 1865, his cavalry pursued Gen. Robert E. Lee and was instrumental in forcing his surrender at Appomattox. Sheridan prosecuted the later years of the Indian Wars of the Great Plains. Both as a soldier and private citizen, he was instrumental in the development and protection of Yellowstone National Park. The general suffered a series of massive heart attacks two months after sending these memoirs to the publisher..

        Group of 15 early editions of works by Robert Louis Stevenson, together with 4 works about Robert Louis Stevenson (19 books in total)]

      Various 1888-1921, London - Condition good to very good. A few volumes with inner hinges split at the gutters. "Island Nights' Entertainments", which is lacking the leaf with the list of the author's works preceeding the half-title page, otherwise all volumes complete with all plates and endpapers present. Three of the titles by Stevenson are first editions: "Catriona" (1893); "Island Nights' Entertainments" (1893); and "Memories" (1912). The remainder of the titles are early reprint editions. "A Lowden Sabbath Morn" has a signed inscription from the illustrator, A. S. Boyd. Provenance: From the collection of New Zealand book collector, journalist, and author Pat Lawlor (1893-1979). 8 of the titles have one of Lawlor's ex-libris bookplates, in 3 different styles. Lawlor wrote about his Stevenson collection in his book "Books and Bookmen" (1954), pages 20-21: "Until recently he was with me entire in the Tusitala Edition which edition never appealed to me. I sold them and am now rebuilding my Stevensonia in the best manner - first and special editions. In such quests I am fortunate. Soon I had illustrated editions, with those appealing maps of Treasure Island, Kidnapped and The Island Nights' Entertainments [. . .] The special edition of the poems published by the Florence Press in 1913 is in its binding a perfect combination of white and gold. George Saintsbury and his father before hime were not so fastidious in their choice of wines as I am in the format of my bookish favourites. I now have my favourite Jekyll and Hyde in three editions including [. . .] a 'near first' published by Longman's in their quaint school-book style - the sailing ship monogram in the left hand corner [. . .] The uniform or even definitive editions become monotonous after a while. We may not change our favourite wines but we may our 'midnight darlings'. After all we are only putting them in more appealing dresses." The 19 titles are: (1) "Catriona". London: Cassell and Company, 1893. (2) "Edinburgh: Picturesque Notes". London: Seeley & Co., 1902.
