        Solferino. Mining Town N.S.W

      Sydney,: Phillip-Stephan, 1888.. Sydney,: Phillip-Stephan, 1888.. Coloured photolithograph, 283 x 352 mm; short tear and a few spots in margin, but a good copy, mounted. An unusual photolithographic view of the mining town of Solferino. "The inventors of the Process [of making a lithograph from a photograph] are Samuel Phillip and Adam Stephan... a photographer, and a lithographic printer. For some three years past, they have, in a cellar situated in Woolloomooloo, worked hard and continuously to perfect this discovery, which combines the knowledge of both trades..." (Ferguson, quoting from one of their portfolios).The results of the process are fairly bizarre: most of the prints have a distinctly surreal quality. Phillip and Stephan produced a series of landscapes, based mainly on photographs by Caire, Lindt, and Bayliss, which could be bought separately, while some were sold in sets. The company continued until 1910.This view of the famous mining town of Solferino is of particular interest for its details of miners' dwellings.Newton, 'Shades of Light', pp. 66, 67, 70, 188; see Ferguson, 14113a.

        Der Fall Wagner

      C. G. Naumann, Leipzig 1888 - TP + 3 leaves + [1]-57 + [58], Octavo. Schaberg 54. Nietzsche had 1,000 copies of this work privately printed but 500 of them were falsely marked "Second Edition". This is one of those mistakenly marked copies. The true second edition identifies 1892 on the title page; this one is without the date, true to the mistakenly marked "zweite auflage" of 1888.In mid-1888, Nietzsche returned to the subject of Wagner and produced this polemic against his former friend and mentor whom he attacks in a volley of witty barbs against both the man and his music. By this time, Nietzsche saw Wagner as not just a singular problem but one which was symptomatic of his entire culture - both Wagner and modernity were basically decadent. Both of them, he contends, lack integrity, manifesting instead a type of anarchy in which "life no longer dwells in the whole". A Nietzschean tour-de-force.Half-cloth with newer paper label to spine, handscripted with faint lettering. Marbled boards. Very good copy of a scarce book.

        Tent Life in Tigerland,

      Sydney and Brisbane: A. Hutchison & Son,, 1888. with which is incorporated Sport and Work on the Nepaul Frontier, being Twelve Years' Sporting Reminiscences of a Pioneer Planter in an Indian District. With Twenty-Two Illustrations in Chromo-Lithography. Octavo (242 × 151 mm). Late 20th-century green half morocco, spine gilt in compartments with floral tools, green cloth sides, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Chromolithographic frontispiece and 21 plates, 4 engravings within the text. Bookplate. Spine a little faded. An excellent copy. First edition. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the verso of the frontispiece, "To Darrie Wrybrough, a good commander, a trusty friend & a good old 'spook' from nape of neck to heel – With kind regards & good wishes from the Author, James Inglis, Sydney 9 March 1900". "Apparently Inglis had so many requests for his first publication, Sport and Work on the Nepaul Frontier, written under his pseudonym 'Maori' that he expanded on his experiences by including his previous book with his new Tent Life in Tigerland. He describes an encounter with a rouge elephant in the Koosee Valley, a tributary of the Ganges, as well as a tiger hunting story related by his friend 'Joe'. There are also episodes describing hunts for tiger – one with the hunters hidden in shallow pits – buffalo, bear, and pig sticking. The author also recalls beats after rhinoceros, tiger, leopard, and sambur in the Oudh jungles" (Czech, Asian Big-Game Hunting, p. 110). A very attractively bound copy.

        November Boughs [Presentation Copy]

      David McKay, Publisher, 23 South Ninth Street 1888 [but 1891], Philadelphia - Tall, thin 8vo: 140,[2]pp, with portrait in the text but no frontispiece photograph inserted (as issued). Original dark green V cloth, beveled covers, spine titled in gilt, upper cover stamped in gilt with tile and Whitman's facsimile autograph, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, wove end papers, laid front fly leaf. "These sheets are probably the 400 copies printed in May, 1891. . . . It seems probable . . . that after Whitman's death his executors had these sheets and the remainder of Good-Bye My Fancy [a copy of which we also have on offer] bound in uniform, but separate, bindings." (BAL 21430, printing 3). With occasional underlining and marginal commentary in pencil on first 18 leaves. Book plate of Virginia bibliophile Christopher Clark Geest to front paste down. Inscribed on front fly leaf to Courtney Lemon (his stamp in blue ink to title page) in 1902 by Whitman executor Horace Traubel: "To / Courtney Lemon / with heartfelt / remembrances & with / peaceful joy from Horace Traubel," with note in Traubel's hand beneath inscription, "W. W. assisted with g[reen] binding of N. Boughs for distribution among his friends. It was never printed for the market." A superb survival with fine association, square and tight, cloth clean with bright gilt, pages fresh and unmarked. Myerson A12.I.c. "One of the most remarkable things about Whitman is that as his health deteriorated, he increased his publishing activity. Part of the reason was his new circle of friends in Camden and Philadelphia . . . most importantly, Horace Traubel, trained as a typesetter and an active publisher and printer his whole life. He became Whitman's close friend and disciple when he was a teenager, and, as he grew up, he became Whitman's emissary to the Philadelphia/Camden printing and publishing community. . . . During the last four years of Whitman's life, from March 1888 to Whitman's death in March 1892, he recorded his daily conversations with Whitman (now published in nine volumes of well over 5000 pages), among which are detailed publication histories of Whitman's last books. The first book we have this record for is November Boughs, Whitman's attempt once again to merge poetry and prose in one book . . . [W]hen Traubel asked him when he was going to bring it out, Whitman's response was telling: "it will come out, and before long, God willing, and you, Horace Traubel, willing: for I shall need you to help me through with this expedition. . . ." Traubel would now be his lifeline to ongoing publishing activity, and it turned out he was more than up to the task. The book contains 64 poems and a lot of prose, including "A Backward Glance O'er Travel'd Roads" and an essay on Elias Hicks. The poems are striking reflections on old age, and everything about this book . . . suggests a kind of November of the soul, the self heading into winter and death. Whitman worried about the binding of the book, ordering Traubel to make changes in the lettering when he saw the first sample. . . . For the third printing, bound after the poet's death, his executors moved to a deep green cloth . . . " (Folsom, Whitman Making Books/Books Making Whitman) N. B.

(BAL 21430, printing 3). With occasional underlining and marginal commentary in pencil on first 18 leaves. Book plate of Virginia bibliophile Christopher Clark Geest to front paste down. Inscribed on front fly leaf to Courtney Lemon (his stamp in blue ink to title page) in 1902 by Whitman executor Horace Traubel: "To / Courtney Lemon / with heartfelt / remembrances & with / peaceful joy from Horace Traubel," with note in Traubel's hand beneath inscription, "W. W. assisted with g[reen] binding of N. Boughs for distribution among his friends. It was never printed for the market." A superb survival with fine association, square and tight, cloth clean with bright gilt, pages fresh and unmarked. Myerson A12.I.c. & "One of the most remarkable things about Whitman is that as his health deteriorated, he increased his publishing activity. Part of the reason was his new circle of friends in Camden and Philadelphia . . . most importantly, Horace Traubel, trained as a typesetter and an active publisher and printer his whole life. He became Whitman's close friend and disciple when he was a teenager, and, as he grew up, he became Whitman's emissary to the Philadelphia/Camden printing and publishing community. . . . During the last four years of Whitman's life, from March 1888 to Whitman's death in March 1892, he recorded his daily conversations with Whitman (now published in nine volumes of well over 5000 pages), among which are detailed publication histories of Whitman's last books. The first book we have this record for is November Boughs, Whitman's attempt once again to merge poetry and prose in one book . . . [W]hen Traubel asked him when he was going to bring it out, Whitman's response was telling: "it will come out, and before long, God willing, and you, Horace Traubel, willing: for I shall need you to help me through with this expedition. . . ." Traubel would now be his lifeline to ongoing publishing activity, and it turned out he was more than up to the task. The book contains 64 poems and a lot of prose, including "A Backward Glance O'er Travel'd Roads" and an essay on Elias Hicks. The poems are striking reflections on old age, and everything about this book . . . suggests a kind of November of the soul, the self heading into winter and death. Whitman worried about the binding of the book, ordering Traubel to make changes in the lettering when he saw the first sample. . . . For the third printing, bound after the poet's death, his executors moved to a deep green cloth . . . " (Folsom, Whitman Making Books/Books Making Whitman) N. B.

        WINTER

      1888. Edited by H. G. O. Blake. Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1888. 14 pp undated ads. Original dark green cloth with facsimile signature in gilt, beveled. First Edition, which consisted of 1550 copies published actually in late 1887. This was the third of Thoreau's "four seasons," following EARLY SPRING (1881) and SUMMER (1884); curiously, Blake published WINTER before AUTUMN (1892), breaking the seasons' natural progression.~This is a bright, handsome copy -- fine with only the slightest of rubbing at the extremities. With the bookplate of Henry Hornblower -- also the small book-label of (perhaps the original) bookseller in Lancaster NH. Borst A10.1.a; Blanck 20129.

        Fairy and Folk Tales of the Irish Peasantry: Edited and Selected by W. B. Yeats

      London: Walter Scott; New York: Thomas Whittaker; Toronto: W. J. Gage and Co.,, 1888. Small octavo. Original red cloth, gilt titles to spine, black titles and design to spine and front board. Scottish bookseller's ticket of George Walker, Montrose. Cloth mildly bubbled and stained, spine a little faded, corners lightly rubbed, front hinge breached, still a nice sound copy in very good condition. First edition, first impression, of Yeats's second book, following Mosada in 1886, and preceding The Wanderings of Oisin in the following year. This, Yeats's first collection of folklore is, both in the stories selected and in Yeats's copious notes and commentary on them, an important analogue for understanding his later imaginative practices. This is notably the first link in the chain of Yeats's development from being a mere collector of myth, to being a creator of it, that would run through John Sherman and Dhoya, Celtic Twilight, The Secret Rose, The Stories of Red Hanrahan, Rosa Alchemica, and Per Amica Silentia Lunae, to A Vision.
