        History Of Greece; From The Earliest Period To The Close Of The Generation Contemporary With Alexander The Great

      London - John Murray, 1888 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. A handsome full set of Grote's monumental History of Greece, bound by Baker & Son. This edition includes a portrait of Grote (the frontispiece to volume I), a map of Greece in volume II, and 12 plans of military maneouvres, battles, and the Africanterritory of Carthage. Grote studied languages and the Classics in his spare time, in the face of his father's contempt for academic learning. He began this work, his magnum opus, in 1822. He was a political radical, and close in his thought to John Stuart Mill and Jeremy Bentham, and alongside Millwas one of the contributors to the foundation of University College London. He later served three terms in parliament in the Liberal interest. The history was one of a series of works around that time to incorporate the conclusions of the great philological studies that had been undertaken by German scholars. as Grote says in his preface, the stock of facts and documents, comparatively scanty. . . has been combined, and illustrated in a thousand different ways. . . One of the great works that represented a new chapter in the European understanding of its classical past, and a significant contribution to the corpus of English classical scholarship. Collated: completeCondition: In a full calf prize Baker & Son binding. Externally very smart. Light fading to the spines and light rubbing to the extremities. Some wear to the front board of volume V. With the binder's stamp to the front endpapers. Internally, generally clean and bright, and firmly bound. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED.

        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.

        A New English Dictionary on Historical Principles;

      Oxford: Clarendon Press,, 1888?1933. Founded mainly on the materials collected by The Philological Society. 11 volumes bound in 13, large quarto (325 x 255 mm). Contemporary brown half morocco, dark red cloth sides, raised bands, titles and ruling to compartments gilt, marbled edges and endpapers. Extremities faintly rubbed, the occasional minor bump to corners, light cockling to front board of Volume 2, Volume 10 (Part I & 2) with different marbling to endpapers and edges, Supplement with different marbling to endpapers. An excellent set with exceptionally bright contents. First edition in book form. "The N.E.D., as it was originally cited, or the O.E.D., as it is now known, is the greatest treasure-house of any language in the world, unrivalled for its comprehensiveness and ease of consultation as well as for its reliability and scholarship" (PMM 371). "The scheme of 'a completely new English Dictionary' was conceived in 1858? Herbert Coleridge and after him Dr. F. J. Furnivall, were the first editors. Their work, which covered 20 years, consisted mainly in the collection of materials, and it was not until Dr. J. A. H. Murray took the matter up in 1878 that the preparation of the Dictionary began to take active form?. The essential feature of the Dictionary is its historical method, by which the meaning and form of the words are traced from their earliest appearance on the basis of an immense number of quotations, collected by more than 800 voluntary workers. The Dictionary contains a record of 414,825 words, whose history is illustrated by 1,827,306 quotations" (Drabble, 728). The Dictionary was originally issued in fascicles which were then gathered into book form. After Murray's death the editing was entrusted to his colleagues Henry Bradley, W. A. Craigie, and C. T. Onions. The one-volume supplement, edited by W. A. Craigie and C. T. Onions, was published in 1933.

        Plain Tales from the Hills.

      1888 - First edition. 8vo., original pictorial green cloth after John Lockwood Kipling. Calcutta, Thacker, Spink And Co. London: W. Thacker and Co. With some light wear and soiling to the binding, but joints sound: a very difficult book to find in collector's condition. Contemporary ownership inscription on front paste-down endpaper. The second issue binding: the first issue is effectively a pre-publication state known in nine copies, six of which were sent to the author. The advertisements are no indication of priority, but for the record we note 32 pages of catalogue, dated December 1887. This is Kipling's first commercially publishedbook of prose, published in an edition of 1250 copies, when he was only 22 years old, a working journalist with good connections to the soldiery (though Francis Younghusband memorably described him as ?bumptious and above his station?) and the Civil Service. Its tales present ?a composite portrait of Anglo-Indian life? (Kingsley Amis), both in Simla, where Kipling enjoyed the gender balance - ?seven women per head of male population. Amen? and on the plain where the husbands continued the job of Empire. Richards A10. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Condition of the Working Class in England in 1844. With Appendix Written 1886, and Preface 1887... Translated by Florence Kelley Wischnewetzky

      London: William Reeves, 1888. First British edition of the first English translation. 8vo. (iv), vi, (3)-199, ix, ii, (1) pp. Publisher's brown cloth, gilt lettered to the spine, ex-libris the Midlands Workers' Library of Birmingham with their loan label to the second free endpaper (listing a single loan in March 1945) and the faint remains of a white numbered shelfmark to the spine, the library's highly distinctive and attractive pictorial bookplate to the front pastedown featuring illustrations of workers set amid Communist iconography. A few blemishes to the contents, occasional old pencilled underlining and marginalia, sometime neatly recased with new endpapers, some light wear to the edges of the binding, but generally a decent copy now housed in bespoke brown cloth case. This British edition was almost certainly issued to tie in with the publication of the latest English translation of Engels and Marx's "Manifesto of the Communist Party", also published by Reeves in London in 1888. It was published using the sheets of the first US edition which appeared in New York the previous year; the first edition printed in the UK didn't appear for another four years. Whilst the first New York edition is uncommon, this London edition is particularly scarce with scant few auction records and not many institutional holdings: Copac lists two in the UK, at the British Library and Oxford, with Worldcat listing three more, two in the US and one in the Netherlands.

        Personal Memoirs.

      New York: Charles L. Webster & Company,, 1888. 2 volumes, octavo. Publisher's deluxe maroon half morocco, raised bands to spines, titles and decoration to compartments gilt, maroon cloth sides ruled in gilt, gilt block of Sheridan on horse to front covers, marbled edges and endpapers. Engraved portrait frontispiece with facsimile signature and tissue guard to each volume, 13 engravings to the text, mostly from portraits, 2 facsimile letters, 27 maps of which 11 folding. Near-contemporary ticket of Publishers' and Booksellers' Protective Association (dated 1898) to rear free endpaper vol. 1, contemporary ownership inscription of W. P. Mandell to initial blank of each volume. Joints and extremities lightly rubbed, small mark to half title of vol. 1, light toning. An excellent copy. First edition, deluxe issue. "Little Phil" Sheridan (1831-1888) was described by Grant as having "no superior as a general, either living or dead, and perhaps not an equal". He is perhaps best remembered for his ruthless campaign in the Shenandoah Valley in 1865 and the brief Appomattox Campaign that forced the surrender of General Lee. "In 1884 he succeeded General Sherman as commander-in-chief of the army. On June 1, 1888, Congress bestowed upon him the highest military rank, that of general. The last months of his life were occupied by the writing of his Personal Memoirs, the preface being signed only three days before his death at Nonquitt, Mass., where he had gone with his family in the hope of restoring his failing health" (DAB). This was published by Mark Twain's publishing company and issued in a very similar binding to that of the Personal Memoirs of U. S. Grant (1885-86).

        Manuscrit autographe inédit : Madame Thésée (nouvelles), 1888-1889 [suivi de] Impressions modernistes

      1888Un album de 197 ff. manuscrits et composé à l'époque, de 23,5 x 18 cm, relié à la bradel en pleine percaline bordeaux, pièce de titre au dos, 2 ff. (page de titre générale et dédicace à Edouard Drumont) - 13 ff. (Madame Thésée) - 9 ff. (Rondels en prose) - 10 ff. (Enterrement d'artiste) - 7 ff. (Le Clown) - 6 ff. (Du cimetière) - 4 ff. (Noël triste) - 34 pp. et 1 f. bl. (Vieille fille - version corrigée) - 7 ff. (La Mendiante) - 6 ff. (La Marte) - 10 ff. (Nocturne sombre) - 8 ff. (Obsession subtille) - 15 ff. (Tante Lili) - 21 ff. (Adultère sentimental) - 9 ff. (L'Ouvrier) - 10 ff. (In extremis) - 1 f. (page de titre des Etudes modernistes) - 6 ff. (Le Rêve) - 9 ff. (Causerie) - 10 ff. (Impression d'automne) - 10 ff. (Dillettantisme) - 7 ff. (Insomnie) - 1 f. bl. Environ 25 lignes par feuillet. Important recueil de nouvelles composé par l'auteur et dédié à Edouard Drumont. La plupart d'entre elles semblent inédites, à l'exception de "Enterrement d'artiste", parue dans Comoedia. Toutes les nouvelles, sauf "Vieille fille", sont en premier jet et comportent de nombreuses ratures et corrections, certaines sont agrémentées de remarques en regard et de papillons contrecollés. Elles sont toutes signées, datées de 1888 ou 1889 et situées, soit à Dèe (?) soit au Gaudinet (lieux-dit de Nantes à côté duquel se trouve désormais une rue Thomas Maisonneuve). L'écriture est généralement facilement déchiffrable, ce qui fait de ce manuscrit une lecture agréable. Poète breton, Thomas Maisonneuve a commis également des pièces de théâtre et au moins un roman assez crû : Décadence (étude d'artiste). Il a publié également plusieurs nouvelles dans la revue Comoedia, dont l'une est présente dans le manuscrit. Une note datée de 1907 disant qu'il fallait rétablir une nouvelle "si volume il y a un jour" nous indique que l'auteur travaillait encore à cette époque à son recueil et qu'il s'interrogeait sur l'opportunité de le publier. Un ensemble exceptionnel, presque intégralement inédit, et en fort bel état malgré des usures à la percaline.

        ROBERT ELSMERE. In Three Volumes (Fine Original Condition)

      Smith, Elder, 1888. Ward, Mrs. Humphry. ROBERT ELSMERE. In Three Volumes. London: Smith, Elder, 1888. First Edition. A NEAR FINE set in original publisher's dark blue-green fine-diaper cloth, only the slightest wear to the extremities, simply superb for this title. ROBERT ELSMERE, now mostly familiar only to the Victorian Fiction specialist, was one of the single most important novels about religious faith and doubt published in the late Victorian era. It presented an uncanny and minute psychological analysis of its central character, creating a vision of Christianity based on social concern and not pure theology. Mary Augusta Ward (1851-1920) is sometimes chided by those with rear view mirrors for being part of an anti-suffrage movement in her later years but writers of the times such as Thomas Hardy recognized her subversive pro-woman subtext and she was much admired. Her charitable work was equally celebrated; she is not a writer to be forgotten. To quote John Carter in his landmark 1947 exhibition catalogue: "It is hard nowadays to realize how deeply Mrs. Ward's novel stirred the thoughtful public of the day." We've never seen a nicer copy of this important High Spot, one of the triumphant achievements of Victorian Women's Fiction and, in terms of faith questioned, one of the most important novels of the times.Wolff 7024. Sadleir 3293. . First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine.
