        The Science of Society. No. 1. The True Constitution of Government in the Sovereignty of the Individual as the Final Development of Protestantism, Democracy and Socialism [togther with, as issued] No. 2, Cost the Limit of Price

      Boston: Sarah E Holmes, 1888. The definitive edition of Andrews's most important work, regarded by James J. Martin as "the finest statement of Warrenism ever written" (Men Against the State, p. 153). This edition republishes two separate works originally published in 1851. The first had been delivered earlier as a lecture at the New York Mechanics Institute. As originally published the two works were anticipated to be the first two in a series of publications presenting the author's solution to social problems of his time. A third was never issued. This edition, from the radical anarcho-feminist publisher Sarah E. ("Lizzie") Holmes, includes an introduction by Benjamin R. Tucker and the first apearance of George Ripley's review of Josiah Warren's Equitable Commerce together with Andrews's reply to Ripley. This edition is the basis for all later reprints and is described by Goodspeed in a 1970 catalogue as "definitive." Octavo. Original green cloth-covered boards, lettered in gilt on front cover; 165pp; each part with separate title page. Nicely preserved in original cloth, just minute wear to extremities; internally clean, tight and unmarked.

        My Uncle Barbassou

      1888. (GARBER, Daniel) UCHARD, Mario. My Uncle Barbassou. London: Vizetelly, 1888. Tall octavo, contemporary full brown crushed morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, uncut. $4500.Second edition in English of this work about life and love in a harem, with 40 etchings by Paul Avril, extra-illustrated with 18 original pen-and-ink drawings in the margins by Daniel Garber. Handsomely bound by Adams.This wry and somewhat erotic novel tells the story of a young Frenchman who is willed his eccentric uncle’s harem and finds himself literally seduced by the lifestyle it offers. The character of Uncle Barbassou was allegedly based rather loosely on Sir Richard Burton. Édouard-Henri Avril (aka Paul Avril), among the best known French illustrators of erotic literature of his day (the so-called “galante literature”), produced a series of lovely head- and tail-pieces for this edition. This particular copy also contains 18 large original drawings by Daniel Garber— 12 of them signed and one dated “‘04.” Executed with a fine-nibbed pen, they appear in the margins and often extend well over the text itself. In addition to his skill as a painter, Garber was also an accomplished etcher, producing scores of delicate prints. From 1899 until 1905 he studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, where he took night classes, in order to pursue his daytime work as an illustrator, commercial artist, and portrait painter. This extra-illustrated book is apparently one of those commercial projects. The first edition of Uchard’s Barbassou was published in French in 1876 and the first English translation appeared in 1887. An additional letterpress title page, mentioning the Garber drawings, is laid into this copy. A fine copy, with signed original drawings, handsomely bound.

Quarto, full teal morocco, raised bands, patterned endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut; original pictorial Japanese vellum boards bound in. $3800.Rare first trade edition, one of 1000 copies printed, with original Japanese vellum pictorial boards bound in, handsomely bound in full morocco.Wilde’s “reputation as an author dated from the publication of The Happy Prince and Other Tales… Wilde presents the stories like sacraments of a lost faith… Their occasional social satire is subordinated to a sadness unusual in fairy tales” (Ellmann, 299). Wilde wrote that he intended these stories “partly for children, and partly for those who have kept the childlike faculties of wonder and joy, and who find in simplicity a subtle strangeness” (Hart-Davis, Letters of Oscar Wilde, 219). Includes, in addition to the title story, The Nightingale and the Rose, The Selfish Giant, The Devoted Friend, and The Remarkable Rocket. With illustrated head and tail pieces by Jacomb Hood, and three plates by Walter Crane. Published the same year as the exceptionally rare signed limited edition of only 75 copies. Mason 313.

        Costume Historique

      1888. First Edition . RACINET, Auguste. Le Costume Historique… Types Principaux du Vètement et de la Parure. Paris: Librairie de Firmin-Didot, 1888. Six volumes. Large folio (12 by 16-1/2 inches), contemporary three-quarter red pebbled calf recased, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. $4800.First edition of this magnificent six-volume folio compilation of historic dress and accoutrements from antiquity to the modern era, illustrated with 477 (of 500) large lithographic plates (307 in full color— many with gold and silver highlights— and 170 tinted plates).Auguste Racinet’s Le Costume Historique is the most comprehensive and detailed study of fashion ever published. Covering the history of dress and hair-styles from antiquity to the 1880s, this great work, containing nearly 500 folio plates, remains completely unparalleled in its scope and scholarly treatment. The set begins with the costumes, coiffures and jewelry of the ancient Egyptians and concludes with 19th-century French couture. While Racinet’s main focus is on European clothing and accoutrements, including armor, furniture and material culture, he does provide sections on Asia, America, and Africa— from the wraps of ancient Etruscans to traditional Eskimo attire. Organized in five parts: “The Ancient World (Egypt, Assyria, Israel, Persia and Phrygia, Greece, Etruscan, Greco-Roman, Rome, Barbarian Europe, Celts and Gauls),” “The 19th Century— Beyond the Borders of Europe (Oceania, Africa, Eskimos, North American Indians, Mexican Indians, South American Indians, China, Japan, India, Ceylon, Middle East, Orient, Turkey),” “Europe 400-1800 (Byzantium, France-Byzantine, Poland, Italy, Spain, Germany, France, England, Holland),” “Traditional Costume till the Late 19th Century (Scandinavia, Holland, Scotland, England, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, France),” and “Patterns and Templates.” A quarto edition was published simultaneously, with plates printed from the same stones, but on smaller stock. An invaluable sourcebook for the development of fashion and style. Without 23 of the plates. Text in French. Colas 2472. Hiler, 732. Lipperheide 93. Scattered very faint patches of foxing to text, dampstain to margins of Volume III (not affecting images). Light expert restoration to contemporary calf.

        Ulwar and its Art Treasures.

Publisher's deluxe binding of dark green morocco over bevelled boards, decorative gilt spine, red and olive green twin labels, concentric gilt rule and roll tool border on sides, large central onlaid red morocco panel titled and decorated in gilt, all edges gilt, richly gilt turns-ins, marbled endpapers. A few old wormholes with small area of worming near foot of front cover and affecting inner morocco joints but binding sound, internally clean and the plates bright. Decorative photochromolithograph title page, photochromolithograph portrait of Mangal Singh within ornamental gold border, plates numbered I-LXXIX: 59 photochromolithograph plates (2 double-page), 19 other plates (including photogravures from photographs, 3 plans & maps), one plate with one photochromolithograph and one photogravure; nine of the ten chapters with coloured pictorial initial letter and either colour pictorial or photogravure head-piece. First edition of this lavish volume, a pioneering study of Mughal art treasures in the collection of the Maharajah of Ulwar (present day Alwar) in Rajasthan, produced, as Hendley explains in his preface, "at the sole cost" of the Maharajah. He goes on to say: " the photographs are, unless otherwise noted, the work of Mr. G. Wyatt of Ulwar, and the coloured illustrations are, almost without exception, reproduced from copies made from the originals by Budha, a talented artist in the employ of H. H. the Maharajah". The subjects covered are wide-ranging, from miniature painting to arms and armour, clothing, bookbinding, textiles and jewellery. The Spectator's review was glowing: "here is a superb volume" (27 April 1889). The publisher was the printing pioneer William Griggs (1832-1911). In the late 1860s Griggs developed the technique of photochromolithography, whereby multiple negatives with the colours separated by varnishes were carefully registered and printed to produce full colour images of quite startling realism. He was hired by the South Kensington Museum, now the V & A, in the 1880s to photograph and produce plates of items in their collection, which were published in sections under the general title Portfolios of Industrial Arts. He had a special association with Indian art that began when, at the age of eighteen, his interest was piqued by working at the Indian court of the Great Exhibition of 1851. "As well as being a British pioneer of colour photolithography, Griggs was a leading exponent of the art for the last quarter of the nineteenth century. He was one of the first to practise halftone block making and collotype and helped to bring about rapid printing using cylinder presses. He was also a more than competent photographer" (ODNB). Colonel Thomas Holbein Hendley (1847-1917), was a surgeon in the Bengal Medical Service. "He had no war service, but was well known as an authority on Indian art. In 1883 he organized the Jaipur Exhibition, and afterwards the Jaipur Museum; he was one of the founders of the Quarterly Journal of Indian Art, and was the author of several works on that subject. Colonel Hendley led a very strenuous life, and will rank among those who have really understood India and the true signification of mid-Eastern ideas and art" (obituary in the British Medical Journal, 10 February 1917). This copy is interesting in that Griggs's imprint has been neatly excised from the title page and final leaf of letterpress, perhaps implying that this copy may have been intended for presentation under the guise of a non-commercial publication. There are some light indecipherable pencillings on these two leaves. There is also a printed slip pasted below the caption of the portrait of Mangal Singh noting his accession as Maharajah on 1 January 1889. Decidedly uncommon: Copac locates copies at six British and Irish institutional libraries (BL, V&A, Cambridge, Oxford, Guildhall, National Trust) and we have traced another at the Royal Collection (a presentation copy from the Maharajah [Attributes: First Edition]

The Spectator's review was glowing: "here is a superb volume" (27 April 1889). The publisher was the printing pioneer William Griggs (1832-1911). In the late 1860s Griggs developed the technique of photochromolithography, whereby multiple negatives with the colours separated by varnishes were carefully registered and printed to produce full colour images of quite startling realism. He was hired by the South Kensington Museum, now the V & A, in the 1880s to photograph and produce plates of items in their collection, which were published in sections under the general title Portfolios of Industrial Arts. He had a special association with Indian art that began when, at the age of eighteen, his interest was piqued by working at the Indian court of the Great Exhibition of 1851. "As well as being a British pioneer of colour photolithography, Griggs was a leading exponent of the art for the last quarter of the nineteenth century. He was one of the first to practise halftone block making and collotype and helped to bring about rapid printing using cylinder presses. He was also a more than competent photographer" (ODNB). Colonel Thomas Holbein Hendley (1847-1917), was a surgeon in the Bengal Medical Service. "He had no war service, but was well known as an authority on Indian art. In 1883 he organized the Jaipur Exhibition, and afterwards the Jaipur Museum; he was one of the founders of the Quarterly Journal of Indian Art, and was the author of several works on that subject... Colonel Hendley led a very strenuous life, and will rank among those who have really understood India and the true signification of mid-Eastern ideas and art" (obituary in the British Medical Journal, 10 February 1917). This copy is interesting in that Griggs's imprint has been neatly excised from the title page and final leaf of letterpress, perhaps implying that this copy may have been intended for presentation under the guise of a non-commercial publication. There are some light indecipherable pencillings on these two leaves. There is also a printed slip pasted below the caption of the portrait of Mangal Singh noting his accession as Maharajah on 1 January 1889. Decidedly uncommon: Copac locates copies at six British and Irish institutional libraries (BL, V&A, Cambridge, Oxford, Guildhall, National Trust) and we have traced another at the Royal Collection (a presentation copy from the Maharajah of Ulwar to Queen Victoria, held at Osborne House); OCLC cites some 28 locations worldwide; only five copies have appeared at public auction since 1976 and only one of those in the "original morocco gilt".

Alexander III, who was very strong, is meant to have lifted the steel roof of the train so that his family could get out. The youngest, who is in her father's arms in this picture, (Olga), is meant to have run down the embankment, saying "Now, they've come to kill us". It is most unusual to get images of the whole family as Grand Duke George was sent to a sanitorium in 1891 for his tuberculosis, and never returned.

To the right of the compass rose is a schedule for trains leaving from Ueno and Maibashi. The inset at lower left corner shows the train schedule Tokyo - Yokohama, and the price for each stage of the journey. The inset at the lower right corner is a listing of municipal and rural districts. Beneath the map at lower right is the publisher Koshodo, followed by the characters for copper engraving (dosen).

        Le rêve

      - Charpentier, Paris 1888, 11x18cm, relié. - Edizione originale. Binding metà dispiacere abete, torna con cinque nervi fissati con reti nere, piatti di carta marmorizzata, guardie e contreplats di carta fatta a mano, francobollo stampato della biblioteca Julia-Alphonse Daudet sulla prima guardia. Importante autografo firmato dall'autore Alphonse Daudet. Alcuni punti. Se hanno attraversato prima, Zola veramente Daudet scoperto nel 1873, dopo aver letto le sue storie Lunedi, "un continuo stupore", "purezza impeccabile", racconta in L'Avenir nazionale. Queste storie hanno ispirato la guerra franco-prussiana profondamente segnato Zola: "Tutti i nostri disastri del 1870 sono, in sei pagine. "Attesa, secondo Henri Mitterand Médan serate e oltre, la debacle. (Vedere Zola Volume II p. 157). Da questo primo articolo, Zola ha con Daudet in tempesta, ma l'amicizia indissolubile alimentata dalla reciproca ammirazione. Come emerge dai numerosi studi che sono impegnati nella stampa per tutta la vita. Intorno Charpentier, il loro editore congiunta, i due scrittori sono quindi provenzale con i loro anziani, Flaubert e Turgenev Goncourt, un circolo letterario che dominerà il romanzo francese nella seconda metà del secolo. Le "cene di Five" inizialmente "cene autori fischiati" (riferendosi ai loro problemi teatrale) costituire la base di lealtà e di solidarietà che, anche se qu'émaillée rivalità artistiche e battaglie di idee, ha avuto fino alla morte. Al di là di amicizia, è una vera fratellanza in armi che unisce questi scrittori per cui la letteratura è più di un'avventura estetica. Come ricordato Zola nel suo omaggio a Daudet: "Se dovessi assegnare un posto definitivo per Daudet, direi che è stato in prima linea della falange sacro che ha combattuto la buona battaglia per la verità in questa seconda metà del secolo. Questa sarà la gloria di questo secolo di aver camminato per la verità l'opera più colossale che mai secolo ha compiuto. Daudet ed è stato con noi tutto tra i più coraggiosi e più audace. [...] Il suo lavoro [...] è una [...] del un'ampia indagine continuata dalla nostra generazione, rimarrà come un testimone chiave, prosecuzione solida e logica dei documenti aziendali Stendhal e Balzac, Flaubert e Goncourt sinistra. » dopo di loro, molti scrittori sostengono di questa esigenza di verità richiede la scrittura di una missione: per costringere letteratura per unirsi al mondo moderno e di far emergere la materia prima. Consapevole di questa responsabilità, più dei cinque basano la loro cerchia. Zola, è il Serate di Medan a Goncourt e Daudet, Grenier e il futuro dell'Accademia. Ma i veri eredi di questa scuola della modernità sarà principalmente Proust e Celine. Il primo, erede diretto del Daudet, il secondo figlio spirituale di The Debacle Dram e La ... Questa lotta tra Zola ei suoi colleghi non è stato senza conseguenze. Un anno prima della pubblicazione del sogno, il "Manifesto dei Cinque" pamphlet violento contro Zola scritto da alcuni abituali Grenier, e probabilmente ispirati da Goncourt e Daudet, quasi avuto a causa della loro amicizia. Questa è una dedica amichevole sulla Terra, il romanzo incriminato nel pamphlet, Zola testimonia il desiderio di Daudet di riconciliazione (cfr Mitterrand t. II, p. 861). Alcune lettere e cene più tardi, questo secondo impegno amichevole su Dream segna veramente la fine dell'ultimo confonde i due scrittori. Dieci anni più tardi, Zola, il testimone definitiva alla grande avventura naturalista che hanno avviato insieme, composto per il funerale del suo "amico caro amato" un tributo commovente ", lo scrittore che ha lavorato così duramente, l'uomo che così subito, mio fratello due volte consacrata dal genio e dolore! » - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure en demi chagrin sapin, dos à cinq nerfs sertis de filets noirs, plats de papier marbré, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, tampon imprimé de la bibliothèque Julia-Alphonse Daudet sur la première garde. Important envoi autographe signé d'Emile Zola à Alphonse Daudet. Quelques rousseurs.   S'ils se sont croisés précédemment, Zola découvre véritablement Daudet en 1873 à la lecture de ses contes du lundi : « un continuel émerveillement », « une pureté irréprochable » rapporte-t-il dans L'Avenir national. Ces nouvelles inspirées de la guerre franco-prussienne marquent profondément Zola : « Tous nos désastres de 1870 sont là, en six pages. » Anticipation, selon Henri Mitterrand, des Soirées de Médan et plus loin encore, de la Débâcle. (cf. Zola tome II p. 157). à partir de ce premier article, Zola entretient avec Daudet une amitié orageuse mais indéfectible nourrie d'une admiration réciproque. En témoignent les nombreuses études qu'ils se consacrent dans la presse tout au long de leur vie. Autour de Charpentier, leur éditeur commun, les deux écrivains provençaux forment dès lors avec leurs aînés, Flaubert, Goncourt et Tourgueniev, un cercle littéraire qui va dominer le roman français pendant la seconde partie du siècle. Les « dîners des Cinq » initialement « dîners des auteurs sifflés » (en référence à leurs déboires théâtraux) constituent la base d'une fidélité et d'une solidarité qui, bien qu'émaillée de rivalités artistiques et de combats d'idées, durent jusqu'à leur mort.
