Together with 3 original photographs of the artist, one of which is in a matte border. Letters: 28 pages combined. 8vo. ivory double-leafs, measuring approximately 13 x 20 cm, each signed in the original, one contained in original covers bearing postmarks from Beirut and Port Said and a Turkish Ottoman Empire postage stamp of 1 Piaster. Album: Oblong 8vo. measuring approximately 23,5 x 14,5 cm, quarter morocco over green cloth, front titled "Sketches" in gilt, with integral cloth pencil holder. 82 pages with pencil drawings, over half of which are on-the-spot drawings of Israel and Palestine. Placed within the album is a separate leaf with a drawing of the walls of Jerusalem. Photographs: Three unique photographs taken circa 1890s, ranging in size from approximately 18 x 12 cm, to 12 x 9 cm, one being a faded sepia view of Grubbe in his studio, another being placed in a matte holder. Indication of moisture to album's spine, otherwise in very good condition, internally sound. Creases to two photographs. Letters are in very good condition. Laurence Carrington Grubbe (1854-1912) travelled to Israel and Palestine in 1889, in the period of Zionist immigration, expressly with the intent of painting foreign sights. The artist's field journal contains approximately 45 manuscript pencil drawings which were drawn in the Holy Land, March and April 1889, captioned accordingly. Some of these include views of Haifa in Israel, ancient stone walls in Ramla, a scene from the road to Jerusalem, portrait sketches of children at Daliyat al-Karmel in Jerusalem, Damascus Gate, the exterior of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, some fine architectural details inside of Solomon's Temple, the tomb of Jesus Christ, views of Bethlehem, Rachel's tomb, etc. The remaining pages are filled with drawings of people and scenes closer to home, one being dated 1891. His correspondence describes the adventure of touring through our civilization's most historically significant lands, a history of which he frequently makes reference to. The first letter was penned 4 February 1889 aboard a ship in the port of Joppa [Jaffa], which he describes as "an artist's wild delight." Three letters are written while at Haifa and one at Daliyat El Karmel. Four letters are addressed to his father, magistrate and two times Mayor of Southwold, John Eustace Grubbe (1816-1899); one is addressed to his sister Constance. Following are some excerpts: "Off Joppa, 4th Feb 89. Before leaving Port Said... small Arab fish market on its borders which we inspected as well as the manners & customs of the Arabs... wonderfully civil, Mr. Haskett Smith a friend of Mr. Oliphants who is with us says it is perfectly safe to travel anywhere this side of Jordan... the reports of danger are kept alive by dragoners... if any Arab of a tribe commits an offence of dishonesty or anything else the Sheik of that tribe is apprehended & put in prison till the delinquent is produced... There was a Turkish Pasha on board with his sword, uniform & carriage... on his way from Mecca to Jerusalem..." "Haifa, 2nd March 89... I have been doing some oil painting... Among the other inhabitants of Dalieh is a ridiculous monkey... I have been here since my return from Beyrout... Mrs. Oliphant & some friends of hers arrive next Tuesday..." "Haifa, March 6th 89... This is a glorious country for archaeological remains. You walk along the shore for miles on the site of a half-buried city - Sicaminum - You can pick up blocks of broken marble by the score, tesserae large & small innumerable... Nobody cares for them or even seems to think of exploring them. Mr. Oliphant did. His garden contains all sorts of relics from this & other quarters... In digging about he came across 2 large caves with the remains of plaster round the walls & steps... tesselated pavement still undisturbed... a very large cistern... ...most interesting of relics about here is the Castle of Athlit, the last stronghold of the Crusaders... a chamber or passage below... the chapel of which one high wall still stands shows carved stone heads of crusaders..." "Daliet-el-Carmel, Syria, March 29th 89...My plans for the future are as follows... leave Haifa on a tour with Allan & a party of Druses Monday. We shall ride to Caesarea along the coast, thence to Jerusalem, Jericho, the Dead Sea &c &c making north to Damascus, Balbek, Tyre & Sidon... will take about 4 weeks... had a delightful trip to Nazareth... lies in a nest surrounded by stormy hills... the highest commands an enormous extent of country, a magnificent view, I made a sketch from it... The well is the only well in the village, & there little girls - women & children go every evening to draw water... just as they did 1900 years ago... We slept at the convent... lighted with a very tall candle and a lantern... Besides ourselves there were about 8 Arab men a little boy and a baby... The men & boy took it in turns to dance to the sound of a shepherds pipe... Among other institutions there is a orphanage where some English ladies look after 80 little Arab girls... April 3rd. P.S. the trip has been unavoidably postponed... going to Jerusalem. I shall paint there for about a fortnight..." Daliyat El Karmel is a Druze town in the Haifa District of Israel, located some 20 km southeast of Haifa. The shrine of Abu Ibrahim, whom the Druze consider a prophet, is in the oldest part of the town. Close by, is the home of Sir Laurence Oliphant, who spent his summers there in the 1880s with his wife Alice, and his secretary Naftali Herz Imber. Laurence Carrington Grubbe (1854-1912) is a well-known Suffolk artist and painter whose works are still sought after today. Born at Southwold, he was a son of wealthy magistrate John Eustace Grubbe (1816-1899) who served twice as mayor of Southwold, and Julia Catherine née Hall (ca 1821-1901). He was educated at Eton College, then admitted to Trinity Hall in Cambridge on 3 February 1872. His father had a house at 29 Holland Park, London where the family often resided. By 1881 he was on the active list with the rank of Captain for the 16th (The Bedforshire) Regiment of Foot. In 1882-83 he was at Shorncliffe Army Camp, and travelling in England, during which time he began seriously considering making a profession of painting. He made some investments with his father, for example, possessing Midland Debenture Stock in 1895, and a Midland Railway Debenture in 1896. Grubbe travelled to Italy, Egypt, Israel and Palestine in 1889 to paint and explore. He took up figure painting, first exhibiting at the London Salon. In 1893 he exhibited "A Game of Draughts" at the Royal Academy. He also exhibited in Southwold, Suffolk and Hampstead, London as late as 1908. He was also a member of the Ipswich Fine Art Club in Southwold from 1889 to 1905. In 1909 he married Marie Ellen Seymour Lucas (1879-1951) whom he nicknamed "Poppets" and whom was described as a miniaturist in the art community. Her family was replete with renowned artists, her father being the esteemed artist John Seymour Lucas, R.A. (1849-1923), a Victorian English historical and portrait painter, as well as an accomplished theatrical costume designer, distinguished antiquary and collector of architectural artefacts. Lucas owned and remodelled The Blythburgh Priory in the then emerging style and influence of the Arts and Crafts Movement which flourished in England between 1880 and 1910. Laurence and Marie had one daughter, Margaret Julia Maria Grubbe (1911-1997) who also became an artist and illustrator. Grubbe died at his home 96 Abbey Road, Hampstead, London in 1912, aged 57, within a year of Margaret's birth. . Very Good.

        Histoire de Khanat de Khokand.

      Paris, Ernest Leroux, éditeur,, 1889. Traduit de Russe par Auguste Dozon. Quarto (273 × 172 mm). Contemporary dark blue half morocco, marbled boards, by Joseph Bretault, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers, tricolour silk page-marker. Original wraps bound in front and back. Double-page engraved map. A very lightly rubbed at the extremities, pale toning, a very good copy. First French edition, originally published in Russian in 1886 at Kazan, this edition issued for l'École des langues orientales vivantes. Institutionally well-represented, but uncommon in commerce with just two copies at auction in the last 50 years. An important account of the Khanate of Kokand, a city now in the Ferganah Region of Uzbekistan. Nalivkine (1852-1918) began his career as an artillery officer, and saw service in the conquest of Khiva in 1875, the following year becoming commander of Namengan in Ferghana. He then left the service to become a "rural proprietor" (translator's preface), and embarked on ethnographical and linguistic studies of the region, producing in time both the first Russo-Sart, and Russo-Uzbek dictionaries. In 1884 he was recalled to the service at the specific instructions of Gen. Cherniaev, the governor-general of Russian Turkestan, in order to establish a school at Tashkent for the teaching of Russian and mathematics, while himself occupying the chair in Sart and Persian at the lycée there. Nalivkine was the author of the first course-book for the elementary schools that the Russians were establishing throughout the region. He was a member of the Tashkent State Duma, and subsequently head of the Turkestan Committee of the Provisional Government, and commander of the Turkestan Military District. In November 1917, power in Tashkent was seized by the Bolsheviks and their Left Social Revolutionary allies, and with the transfer of power to the soviets, Nalivkine went into hiding. He committed suicide in January 1918. An excellent copy in an attractive contemporary binding by Bretault, a pupil of Victor Champs, and recognised as one of the foremost binders practising in Paris at the turn of the nineteenth century (Devauchelle, La Reliure en France, III, p. 127).

Spine and covers lightly worn, with small chip from bottom end of spine. Previous owner's name in pencil at head of title page. In custom brown cloth clamshell box.The second edition of this work of baseball anecdotes and autobiography by Mike "King" Kelly (1857-1894), the first memoir by a baseball player. Kelly, at the time of this work a member of the Boston Beaneaters, was an early innovator of the game, introducing or popularizing such techniques as the hook slide, the hit and run, and the art of intentionally fouling balls to build up the pitch count. Handsome, personable, and extremely popular with fans, Kelly parlayed his success on the field into second career as a vaudeville performer --- his act including recitations of the poem "Casey at the Bat." In 1945 Kelly was inducted into the Baseball Hall Fame in only its second vote.A first edition of Play Ball was published in 1888 by Emery & Hughes. Both editions are rare, with OCLC locating only one copy of this edition. Grobani 27-1 (for 1888 edition, the earliest work listed under "Anecdotes and Recollections"); Smith 14906 (erroneously listing an 1883 edition); OCLC 863156817 (1 copy, New York Public Library).

        EDGAR (1889). Dramma lirico in tre atti di Ferdinando Fontana. Opera completa per Canto e Pianoforte. Nuova edizione [in tre atti]. Riduzione di Carlo Carignani. timbro a secco Febbraio 1892 (Pl.n°53736).

      Ricordi, Milano - 2ª edizione. Cm.27,2x20,2. Pg.(4), 248. Legatura in mz.pergamena non editoriale con piatti marmorizzati. La coperta originale, in riproduzione fotostatica policroma, è conservata all'interno. Bruniture al frontespizio e restauri cartacei alle ultime nove carte. In generale, causa il tipo di carta usato, i margini delle carte sono abbastanza fragili. Con indicazione degli interpreti della prima esecuzione assoluta del 21 aprile 1889 al Teatro alla Scala: Romilda Pantaleoni, Gregorio Gabrielesco, Pio Marini, Antonio Magini Coletti, Aurelia Cataneo. Al piede dei nominativi degli interpreti la notazione a stampa "Prima esecuzione della nuova Edizione in tre Atti: Ferrara, Teatro Comunale, 28 febbraio 1892". Sempre alla seconda carta dedica autografa manoscritta di Puccini: "All'illustre avvocato Senatore Pelosini, Omaggio di Giacomo Puccini. Torre del lago, 29 ottobre 1894". Buona grafia, firma estesa. Si tratta di una rara seconda edizione dello spartito per canto e Piamo dell'"Edgar" pucciniano. Dopo il buon successo de "Le Villi", opera prima del maestro lucchese nel 1884, Giulio Ricordi commissionò a Puccini una seconda opera, e la scelta cadde su "Edgar", anch'essa, come "Le Villi", su libretto di Ferdinando Fontana, liberamente tratto da "La coupe et les lèvres" di Alfred De Musset. L'opera fu composta dal 1886 al 1889, quando il 21 aprile 1889, sotto la direzione di Franco, fu eseguita, in quattro atti, alla Scala, con discreto successo. In vista di una ripresa, sempre sollecitato dall'attento Ricordi, Puccini revisionò la partitura in vista di una ripresa. Dopo tali modifiche e aggiustamenti, l'opera fu di nuovo rappresentata, sempre in quattro atti, a Lucca nel settembre del 1891, al Teatro del Giglio. Fu dopo questa esecuzione che venne decisa la soppressione del quarto atto, e la nuova versione in tre atti andò in scena al Teatro Comunale di Ferrara il 28 gennaio 1892, sotto la direzione di Carlo Carignani. La presente edizione è quella adottata in tale occasione, e fu utilizzata anche nelle successive messe in scena dello stesso anno, al Teatro Regio di Torino (5 marzo) con Mario Ancona, al Teatro Real di Madrid diretta da Luigi Mancinelli (19 marzo) ed al Teatro Grande di Brescia (18 agosto). In seguito vi furono altre revisioni. La presente edizione è particolarmente rara in quanto, presentando il timbro a secco del febbraio 1892, costituisce in assoluto uno dei primissimi esemplari usciti dai torchi di Casa Ricordi. Il tutto, ovviamente, impreziosito dal bell'autografo del Maestro al Pelosini. "Narciso Feliciano Pelosini (Fornacette di Cascina, 9 giugno 1833 ? Pistoia, 9 luglio 1896) si dedicò, oltre al suo mestiere di avvocato, anche alla carriera politica nel campo liberale, ma lasciò traccia di sé anche nel campo della letteratura, che fu la giovanile aspirazione della sua vita. Firmò le sue opere o con la sigla N.F.P. o come Giovan Paolo d'Alfiano, l'antico nome del paese natale. Fu amico di Giacomo Puccini e in un'occasione ne fu anche l'avvocato difensore. Fu titolare della cattedra di diritto penale presso la Scuola di scienze sociali di Firenze e partecipò ad illustri processi dell'epoca, tra cui anche quello fra il politico Giovanni Nicotera e "La Gazzetta d'Italia", giornale di Firenze. Tra le sue conoscenze e amicizie annoverò anche quella di Giosuè Carducci. Il 4 dicembre 1890 fu nominato senatore, militando nella destra. Morì a Pistoia il 9 luglio 1896 e attualmente riposa nel Cimitero della Misericordia della stessa città. Ancora oggi è visibile una lapide presso la sua casa natale in via Tosco Romagnola a Fornacette (Pisa)" (da wikipedia) . > Schickling, 62.E.2, "Second Italian edition": "The edition was announced in the "Gazzetta Musicale" of February 1892 and, according to MRK, printed on February 1892. Compared to 62.E.1 [the first edition], this edition contains numerous minor changes in dynamics, expression marks, and in the part-writing of the voices".

In some ways a dream-fantasy, very imaginative." - Teitler and Locke (2013) 579. According to Teitler, the story concerns "immortals of very ancient Indian origin at Earth's center, metaphysics, mild feminism, advanced science that remains in the background, and a couple of chapters dealing with materialization on other worlds beyond the Solar System, and a world of apemen and the ruins of an advanced city on yet another planet." D'Apery published at least two other fantasy novels under her "Olive Harper" pen name, THE SHOW GIRL (1902) and THE SOCIABLE GHOST (1903). Not in Costes and Altairac. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Not in Locke, Spectrum I-III. Wright (III) 1396. The text is printed on very pulpy paper which is tanned but not brittle. Mild stains to rear cover, else a very good copy. A rare book, formerly part of the Stuart Teitler collection of lost race fiction. (#152438) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        HOLY LAND. From Original Drawing by David Roberts, R.A. [After Lithographs by Louis Haghe] With Historical Descriptions by the Rev. George Crowly, LL.D.

      London: Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co., [ca. 1889]. 2 volumes, bound as one, containing sections; Jerusalem and Galilee; Jordan and Bethlehem; Idumea & Petra. With a total of 120 fine lithographic tinted plates from Roberts' drawings done on the scene. 4to, in fine three-quarter red morocco over red textured cloth boards, the spine with flat bands of double-ruled gilt, gilt lettered in one compartment, printed endpapers, a.e.g. viii, 85; 36 pp. A handsome copy, the binding well preserved with only a bit of unobtrusive spotting to the cloth, solid and strong, unusual for these large heavy books. The paper quite fresh and fine with only very minor light foxing occasionally present and far less then typically encountered. With the general title and one of the divisional title-pages included, that for section three, which along with section three's preliminary material is bound in the front. The three page 'notice of the journey', the list of subjects for parts one and two, and the three pages of introductory text to section 2 are not included. VERY EARLY ISSUE OF THE QUARTO EDITION WITH 120 PLATES REPRODUCED FROM One of the most desirable of all travel and plate books. Roberts' original folio volumes from the 1840 rank among the most costly of illustrated travel books. Their popularity let to the production of a series of more affordable quarto volumes, of which the volume offered here is one. In the course of two and a half months in 1838, traveling some 800 miles south from Cairo, Roberts recorded the monumental temple sites along the Nile in more than a hundred sketches. He headed on to to Petra and Mount Sinai, and then throughout the Holy Land and the areas of historical and religious importance which were held sacred to Christians, Jews and Muslims alike. As the first British artist to sketch the monuments of Ancient Egypt, set on "Plains so vast...that, until you come near them, you have no idea of their magnificence," Roberts was well aware of the stir his drawings would create in London. According to John Ruskin, writing in PRAETERITA, Roberts's drawings "were the first studies ever made conscientiously by an English painter, not to exhibit his own skill, but to give true portraiture of scenes of historical and religious interest.

Each volume bound with the original cloth spine and front panel. With numerous illustrations by H. J. Ford. In near fine condition. An exceptional set bound by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. Andrew Lang's Fairy Books are a series of twelve collections of fairy tales, published between 1889 and 1910. Each volume is distinguished by its own color. In all, 437 tales from a range of cultures and countries are presented. Lang's urge to gather and publish fairy tales was rooted in his own experience with the folk and fairy tales of his home territory along the English-Scottish border. At the time he worked, English fairy-tale collections were rare: Dinah Maria Mulock Craik's The Fairy Book (1869) was a lonely precedent. When Lang began his efforts, he "was fighting against the critics and educationists of the day", who judged the traditional tales' "unreality, brutality, and escapism to be harmful for young readers, while holding that such stories were beneath the serious consideration of those of mature age" (Roger Lancelyn Green).

        Apache Kid and Prisoners Boudoir Card

      - A very scarce boudoir card with Haskaybaynayntayl, or the Apache Kid, from just before his final escape. No date, circa 1890s. Image is in very good condition with the photo measuring 4 3/8" x 6 7/8". There is some loss of paper on the right edge of the mount and the word "Dup" in ink. The caption and publication information on the back are covered by newspaper articles with a discard mark from the Sharlott Hall Museum in Prescott, Arizona with some handwritten notes. This photograph taken at Globe, Arizona has ten prisoners in it, with notations of their names and tribes in the photo. The Apache Kid is the second from the right in the top row, in this last known photograph of him. The article on the back describes the famous November 2, 1889 escape of eight of the prisoners while being transported to Yuma and their killing of Sheriff Reynolds and W. A. Holmes in the escape. The Apache Kid was one of the few escapees that survived very long, and his raids and sightings of him continued until 1894. No records of photo cards were found on OCLC, although the extracted image of the Apache Kid is well known. ; 5 1/4" x 8 1/2"
