Tirage à 2.200 exemplaires numérotés dont 2.000 exemplaires sur vélin de Hollande, 100 exemplaires sur grand papier du Japon et 100 exemplaires sur Japon du format du volume. CELUI-CI, UN DES 100 EXEMPLAIRES DE TÊTE SUR GRAND PAPIER DU JAPON. Provenance : De la bibliothèque du bibliophile américain Daniel B. Fearing. Don de Daniel B. Fearing au Grolier Club de New-York (ex libris). Vendu ensuite par le Grolier Club (cachet). Collection Bertrand Hugonnard-Roche (avec monogramme autographe BHR, 2010). Qui mieux que Uzanne lui-même pourrait nous parler de ce livre : "De tous les livres faits par l'auteur de l’Éventail avec la collaboration de Paul Avril, celui-ci est incontestablement le mieux réussi au point de vue rendu des dessins par procédés divers, héliogravure en creux et en relief, fac-similés Gillot, chromogravures typographiques, emploi des bronzes pâles, feu, orange, verts, usage des glacis de platine et d'étain alliés aux couleurs repérées, etc. Livre essentiellement nouveau que celui-ci, il faut le dire, et qui témoigne, aux yeux des gens du métier, de mille difficultés vaincues et d'audaces décoratives heureusement couronnées de succès. Le Bibliophile, en tant qu'éditeur artistique, a quelque vanité de n'avoir rien raté dans la mise en oeuvre si complexe de ce livre. Quant au texte, il n'est peut-être pas parfait pour plaire à beaucoup, car sa philosophie antimondaine, parfois même antisociale, a le défaut d'être très personnelle et par conséquent exclusive ; l'écrivain étant d'un absolutisme de pensée rigoureux que d'aucuns trouvent très souvent excessif." (in Catalogue de Quelques-uns des Livres Contemporains en exemplaires choisis, curieux ou unique tirés de la Bibliothèque d'un écrivain et bibliophile parisien et qui seront livrés aux enchères les 2 et 3 mars 1894. Paris, Durel, mars 1894. n°440 pour ce commentaire). Si Uzanne a évoqué son attachement au contenu de ce livre qu'il place pour ainsi dire au dessus des autres à cette époque (fin 1887), voici la table des chapitres complète : Proscenium - Le Monde et la Société - Les Arts et les Lettres - L'Intérieur - L’étude - L'Amour - Le Voyage - Les Sports - La Table - Le Rêve - La Campagne - et un Appendice correctif (bien senti). Ce livre, pour l'avoir lu attentivement, malgré quelques longueurs et lassitudes au sein de quelques chapitres, nous livre la pensée d'Octave Uzanne à l'aube de ses 36 ans. Jeune célibataire (L'amour), épris de libertés et d'indépendance, ayant déjà un goût prononcé pour les voyages qu'il effectuera bientôt en grand nombre, philosophe, penseur, critique et journaliste, misanthrope aussi, déjà, rêveur presque asocial par certains aspects. Voilà l'Octave qu'il nous dépeint en quelques cent cinquante pages presque toujours richement illustrées. C'est sans doute l'un des livres les plus intimistes qu'il a donné au public avec le Paroissien du célibataire publiée en 1890. Ce livre est négligé par erreur par les catalogueurs de livres. Il doit, au contraire, occuper une place de choix dans la bibliographie de l'auteur. BEL EXEMPLAIRE FINEMENT RELIÉ DU RARE TIRAGE DE TÊTE SUR JAPON D'UNE BELLE PROVENANCE. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le rêve

      Charpentier, 1888. - 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. Au - delà de l'amitié, c'est une véritable fraternité d'armes qui unit ces écrivains pour lesquels la littérature est bien plus qu'une aventure esthétique. Comme le rappelle Zola dans son hommage à Daudet : « S'il me fallait assigner une place définitive à Daudet, je dirais qu'il a été au premier rang de la phalange sacrée qui a combattu le bon combat de la vérité dans cette seconde moitié du siècle. Ce sera la gloire de ce siècle d'avoir marché à la vérité par le labeur le plus colossal que jamais siècle ait accompli. Et Daudet a été avec nous tous parmi les plus braves et les plus hardis. [...] Son œuvre [...] fait partie [...] de la vaste enquête continuée par notre génération, elle restera comme un témoignage décisif, la suite solide et logique des documents sociaux que Stendhal et Balzac, que Flaubert et les Goncourt ont laissés. »   à leur suite, de nombreux écrivains se réclament de cette nécessité de vérité qui impose à l'écriture une mission : contraindre la littérature à adhérer au monde moderne et à en dégager la matière brute. Conscients de cette responsabilité, plusieurs parmi les cinq fondent leur propre cercle. Pour Zola, ce sont les Soirées de Médan, pour Goncourt et Daudet, le Grenier et la future Académie. Mais les véritables héritiers de cette école de la modernité seront surtout Proust et Céline. Le premier, héritier direct de Daudet, le second fils spirituel de L'Assommoir et de La Débâcle... Cette lutte d'influence entre Zola et ses pairs ne fut pas sans conséquence. Un an avant la parution du Rêve, le « Manifeste des Cinq », virulent pamphlet contre Zola rédigé par quelques habitués du Grenier, et vraisemblablement inspiré par Goncourt et Daudet, faillit avoir raison de leur amitié. C'est par une dédicace amicale sur La Terre, le roman incriminé dans le pamphlet, que Zola témoigne à Daudet son désir de réconciliation (cf. Mitterrand t. II, p. 861). Quelques lettres et dîners plus tard, cette seconde dédicace amicale sur Le Rêve marque véritablement la fin de la dernière brouille des deux écrivains. Dix ans après, Zola, ultime témoin de la grande aventure naturaliste qu'ils ont initiée ensemble, composera pour les obsèques de son « ami tendrement aimé » un émouvant hommage à « l'écrivain qui a tant travaillé, l'homme qui a tant souffert, mon frère deux fois sacré par le génie et par la douleur ! »

        The Career of Major George Broadfoot, C.B.,

      London: John Murray,, 1888. (Governor-General's Agent N.W. Frontier, 1844-5) in Afghanistan and the Punjab. Compiled from his Papers and those of Lords Ellenborough and Hardinge. Octavo. Original plum cloth with the Broadfoot arms gilt to the front board, neatly rebacked in matching morocco, title gilt to the second compartment, retains the original brown surface-paper endpapers. Portrait frontispiece and 2 full-page maps. Spine a touch sunned, pale toning, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Uncommon memoir of the man described by his fellow political officer, Colin McKenzie, as "the foremost man in India". Broadfoot first served in India in the late 1820s with the 34th Native Infantry Madras Army. After returning to Britain to study at Addiscombe, he rejoined the Madras Army, commissariat department, in 1838 serving with distinction during the latter stages of the First Afghan War, famously prevailing against the majority to insist on the defence of Jalalabad; "and thus the firmness of one man, and he nearly the junior in the council of war, preserved his country's arms from suffering another deep and disgraceful blow" (Durand, The First Afghan War, p400). After the lifting of the siege, Broadfoot joined the relieving army under Major-General George Pollock "and distinguished himself in the actions at Mamu Khel, Jagdalak, and Tezin. In October he was promoted brevet major and made a CB." (ODNB). He had caught the eye of the governor-general, Lord Ellenborough, for his inspirational rôle as part of "illustrious garrison" at Jalalabad, and was made commissioner at Tenasserim in Burma, but his health suffered in the climate, and he requested a transfer. "In 1844 Sir Henry Hardinge, the new governor-general, appointed him his agent for the north-western frontier: an important position when war with the Sikhs seemed likely. He reported on the Punjab situation, negotiated with the Sikhs and, when war seemed imminent, gathered supplies for the army. In December 1845 the Sikhs invaded British territory. Broadfoot served on Hardinge's staff and was at the battles of Mudki and Ferozeshahr. At the latter, on 21 December, he was killed, shot through the heart". In his despatches following the battle Hardinge described him as "as brave as he was able in every branch of the political and military service", sentiments which would seem to suggest that Riddick's glib assessment of him as "a clever climber" is inapt at the very least. A very good copy of this sought-after biography.

        The Ghost in The Bank of England.

      James Hogg: London, 1888. 8vo. 63pp. Publisher's polychrome binding in varying shades of blue, green and red.Minor edgewear, scuffed and a trifle discoloured here and there, cloth darkened to rear panel. Internally clean, pencil gift inscription to front pastedown. A trifle thumbmarked here and there one gathering stands slightly proud. Nevertheless a very good copy. The author's first book (although attribution is disputed...well it's disputed in the fact that one eminent gentleman says it's Phillpots, a number of others say it isn't; nobody has another viable option, and seeing as no-one has really seen a copy of it floating around for a while it's likely to remain somewhat mysterious. A fair amount of the Phillpotts attribution seems to be based on the fact that he wrote something else for London Society. The jury is still out, having a really long lunch), a slightly different version appeared in "London Society" Magazine in the 1880's, this is the first edition in book form. Stupidly rare. Six copies found on worldcat, only two in the UK (absent from the BL catalogue), no auction records for the last 50 years or so, one of those strange books that appears in Hubin, and on the occasional list of highly thought of oddities and never sees the light of day. A thoroughly presentable copy. Crazy job this bookselling lark. .

        SOLDIERING IN DAKOTA, AMONG THE INDIANS, IN 1863-4-5

      Huron, Dakota: Huronite Printing House, 1888. 60pp. Original decorative printed wrappers; rear wrapper partially restored. Minor chipping to spine. Loss to lower fore-corner of text. Text lightly and evenly toned. Tissue repairs to last two leaves. Very good. In a black half morocco and cloth slipcase with chemise, spine gilt. One of the rarest works about Plains Indian wars during the Civil War period. Myers was a member of the Sixth Iowa Cavalry, under the command of Gen. Alfred Sully, sent into the Dakotas to punish the Sioux in 1864 and 1865. He vividly describes events of 1863-65 on the northwestern frontier, including the rescue of the famed Indian captive, Fanny Kelly. An excellent first-hand narrative of events along the Upper Missouri, including clashes with Indians (e.g. the Battle of Tah-Kah-O-Kee- Ta), Sully's marches deep into Sioux country, and the punishments inflicted on the Sioux by American forces. Very rare. HOWES M929, "b." ALLEN, DAKOTA 648.

A heavy book, the volume is 2 1/2" thick and includes works by over 50 authors. With its Index of Titles in order of appearance (rather than alphabetical) and with credit to Twain for "Warm Hair" on page 8, this is clearly the first state of this wonderful book.

Rebound in brown leather with gilt titling on upper board and gilt decorative leaf motif on both boards and spine. One thousand copies were printed of this first edition (Mason, 331-332). Collation conforms to Mason with two variations: blank leaf at end of Q signature has been moved to follow free front endpaper; following this blank leaf is the Japanese vellum with G.P. Jacomb-Hood’s illustration, red lettering, and publisher’s device, originally used on upper cover. Boards have light to moderate edge and corner wear, with the most significant wear at tail of spine. Re-jointed and re-backed, with 2/3 of gilt back preserved. Spine has darkened with age, and leather turn-ins have left a dark border around edges of endpapers. Missing tissue guard. Pages are clean and bright. This collection of children’s stories by Wilde marked his departure from journalism, just before his playwriting career gained momentum. In addition to Jacomb-Hood’s head- and tail-pieces, includes three full-page illustrations by acclaimed 19th century children’s illustrator Walter Crane. Masse, 39.
