A collection of his photographs of noted Californians was donated to the California State Museum. His studio in San Francisco also produced a series of stereoscopic views of western scenery.

        Village Boys & Their Amusements. [Album of 18 pen and ink drawings]

      N.p. [Cookham, England] 1889 - Pen and ink on paper, each of the 18 drawings titled opposite (two-page spreads title in the drawing). One inserted sketch on a folded leaf, annotated on verso in the hand of the recipient. 1 vols. Oblong 12mo. Rural Fun in Cookham, 1889. Album of drawings from the pen of William G. Spencer of Cookham, Berkshire. Opposite the title leaf is a dedication "A.D.C. with love from William Spencer June 1889". The scenes depict a year's worth of rural amusements: "Snow-balling," "[Field] Hockey," "Football," "Leapfrog," "Marbles," "A Running Race," "Merry Anglers," "Rounders on Cookham Moor," "Quoits," "The School Great," "Punch & Judy," "The Paper Chase" (two-page spread), "Tug of War," "The Village Drum & Fife Band," "Merry Archers," "Cricket. The Winning Run. Great Excitement" (two-page spread), Guy Fawkes Day," and "On the Ice" [signed "W.G.S. 1889"].The annotation on a loosely inserted sketch of a rustic "with the sun in one hand and a watering-pot in the other" identifies the artist as William Spencer "as a boy" and is signed "A. D. Coleridge." Arthur Duke Coleridge (1830-1913) was clerk of assizes on the Midland circuit and author of Eton in the Forties, by an old Colleger (1896); and Reminiscences (1921), edited by J.A. Fuller-Maitland.William Spencer (1846-1928), "Pa," was a music teacher and organist who lived at Fernlea in Cookham and was father of eight children, and "was described by an acquaintance as 'a patriarchal figure who cycled around Cookham reciting Ruskin aloud'"(ODNB). His eldest son William, the artist of this album, was a child prodigy pianist who went on to become a professor at the Bern Music Institute. William "most certainly was a draughtsman. Indeed he had to decide between a career in art or one in music, and decided on music ? My feeling is that both [Pa and Will] may have been associated with the London Bach Choir which A.D. Coleridge helped set up in 1875" (Ken Pople, personal communication, 2006).William's two younger brothers were British artists Sir Stanley Spencer (1891-1959) and Gilbert Spencer (1893-1979); all received an unconventional late Victorian education at home. Stanley spent much of his life in the village of Cookham, where the Stanley Spencer Gallery is now maintained in his memory.Unusual and interesting. Black morocco backed notebook, ticket of J. Tillyer & Co., Oxford. Binding broken, spine perished, internally fine Pen and ink on paper, each of the 18 drawings titled opposite (two-page spreads title in the drawing). One inserted sketch on a folded leaf, annotated on verso in the hand of the recipient. 1 vols. Oblong 12mo [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Nursery "Alice" containing twenty coloured enlargements from Tenniel's Illustrations to "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" with text adapted to nursery readers.

      London: Macmillan and Co. 1889 - Quarto. Original white cloth-backed pictorial boards, titles to front cover in red and black, orange endpapers. Wear to corners and head and foot of spine, spine darkened, some light foxing to preliminaries, some internal finger marks, diagonal crease to page 36. Mechanical enlargements of 20 of John Tenniel's illustrations, enlarged from the originals and printed in colour; text printed in brown ink. Cover illustrations by E. G. Thomson. First edition, first impression, third state, with the original illustration of Alice and the Cheshire Cat on page 34 with Alice's profile visible, overpriced with two shillings on the title page. Genuinely rare thus: copies are overwhelmingly met within the second printing. Ten thousand copies of the first print run were printed by Edward Evans on toned paper. Dodgson rejected the entire edition in sheets as the pictures were "far too bright and gaudy" and instructed they should be reprinted. The casings prepared had Alice asleep beneath a tree on the front cover and a picture of the March Hare on the back. Four thousand copies of the rejected sheets were sent to the States and the book was published with a tipped-in preliminary leaf and title page dated 1890. In 1891 after the publication of the reprinted edition, some of the original copies were bound up and overprinted "People's Edition, Price Two Shillings" on the title page, as is this copy.

        Autograph letter signed. Paris, 8. XII. 1889.

      1889. 8vo. 1 p. In French, to an unidentified artist. Zola advises his correspondent to speak directly with his publisher, M. Charpentier, about his drawings because "I have very little time and prefer not to become involved in this question of illustrations. I have always thought that the best thing to do is to leave an artist free to interpret a book, as he likes. Zola adds that he does not intend to write a novel about the 1870 war for another two years". - The drawings to which Zola refers were probably meant to illustrate his novel Le Rêve, an edition of which was published in 1892 with illustrations by Carlos Schwabe and Lucien Métivet. Zola s novel about the 1870 war, La Débâcle, was also published in 1892.

      Ward, Lock, And Co,, London 1889 - Edited by G.T. Bettany MA,BSc, ix+363 pp ; complete with the frontispiece of author,map,14 full-page illustrations and biographical introduction by the editor. Full red school prize calf binding, outer edge gilt dentelles, six gilt decorated raised band compartments, gilt titled green morocco label on spine, gilt decorated embossed medallion of New College, Box Hill lon front cover, school prize award label Xmas 1891 on front paste down, marbled edges and endpapers.Very small binder's name stamp on endpaper.This second edition was initiated and produced as part of Ward's Minerva Library of Famous Books. Ward astutely employed Bettany's scientific and literary knowledge to revise proof sheets of the original work and its readability. Bettany confirmed Wallace as the" co -discoverer with Mr. Darwin of the principal of natural selection as the main agent in the evolution of species." " What deserves repeating and emphasising" he writes "is that Mr. Wallace must rank as a completely independent and original discoverer of the essential feature of the "Origin of Species". He describes Wallace as" in divergence" from Darwin in one important point:" the limits of natural selection as applied to man." Such a divergence, coupled with the former Leicester schoolmaster's intrepid exploration and observations over four years account for the choice by many schools of Bettany's edition as a school prize.

        Mission Pavie Indo-Chine 1879-1895. Géographie et voyages. I. Exposé des travaux de la mission (Introducton, première et deuxième périodes = 1879 à 1889).

      - Paris, Ernest Leroux [text volumes]; Augustin Challamel [atlas], 1898-1919. Ten volumes in 11 (ten text volumes and one atlas). Large 4to. (28.0 x 22.0 cm). Title pages, 3981 pp., 64 maps, 121 plates of which 33 in full colour; about 700 text figures. All original printed wrappers bound in. Uniform early 20th century half calf over marbled boards. Spines with four raised bands and gilt titles.= The complete results of the exploration of French Indo-China by Auguste Pavie. "Auguste Jean-Marie Pavie (1847-1925) was a French colonial civil servant, explorer and diplomat who was instrumental in establishing French control over Laos in the last two decades of the 19th century. After a long career in Cambodia and Cochinchina, Pavie became the first French vice-consul in Luang Prabang in 1885, eventually becoming the first Governor-General and plenipotentiary minister of the newly formed French colony of Laos" (Wikipedia). The work is separated into three parts: 'Various studies' ('Études diverses'), in three volumes, including one on the zoology of the area with contributions by several experts and with many new species that are often splendidly illustrated; 'Géographie et voyages', in seven volumes, with many fine maps, and an atlas with another ten large scale maps. Except for the atlas, all volumes are richly illustrated in the text, mainly with photos, a few volumes more dominantly with engravings. The first "études diverses" volume contains fine chromolithographs. Volume VII is very scarce. Another book-dealer states that "La presque totalité du tirage du volume VII a été détruite peu après son impression". A more detailed collation is as follows: Paris, Ernest Leroux, 1901.
