        The Maltings, Great Grimsby.

      - [London, Sir Joseph Causton & Sons, c. 1890]. 4to. Original full calf, richly decorated and lettered in gilt, inner dentelles gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt; pp. 40, highly illustrated throughout, apart from a few very light spots, a fine copy. First edition, of an addendum to Barnard's sought-after and rare four-volume work Noted Breweries of Great Britain & Ireland (cover title of this publication; however, not part of the Noted Breweries), dealing with the malt industry in Grimsby. Alfred Barnard, after having wisited 162 Whiskey disitilleries in Britain in order to publish a book, embarked on a similar tour on breweries, which resulted in the work, of which separate printings of certain chapters have been produced, usually for the owners and sharholders of the businesses. - What Grimsby had was certainly not a micro-brewery; the malt industry was impressive, with companies running their own steamers for barley import. No. 1 Malting 'is by far the largest of any malting floor that we have seen in the couse of our travels,' Barnard pays his respect on p. 35. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Fort Assinniboine, Montana Collection of Photographs

      Set of seven albumen photographs of Fort Assinniboine, Montana taken from the 1870s to 1890. Only two photographs have H. G. Klenze imprints on verso, the rest are unmarked. All are mounted and measure between 9" x 5 ½" and 10" x 8" (including mounts) ; four mounts are dark brown with gilt edges, Klenze imprints are on two of these, and three mounts are buff, one with manuscript title underneath photo. Conditions range from good to very good. All photographs have light soiling and light wear to edges; some have light silvering; all mounts have light wear and creasing to all edges and moderate soiling and toning on verso; the corner of one mount is bent and has a 3" crease affecting photograph; a different photo/mount is missing the bottom right corner, including a 1" portion of the photo. Almost all images have good contrast and detail. Imprints read: "H. G Klenze. Post Photographer, Fort Assinniboine, M. T. Photographs of noted Indian Chiefs. Views of Western Scenery" and H. G Klenze. Photographer, Fort Assinniboine, M. T." Some of Klenze's earlier imprints state that he was successor to David F. Barry, a prolific photographer in the Dakota Territory. Photographs in this collection depict a square with officers' quarters on the right, enlisted men's quarters on the left, views showing the soldiers lined up in formation, armed with bayonets and rifles, relaxed scenes of soldiers posed on a stairway, and a sawmill located behind the officers' quarters. Like all military forts, the grounds and structures were continually rebuilt, with at least two time periods represented in these photographs. Four photographs represent the Fort when it had many whitewashed buildings and a boardwalk. The other three clearly represent a later time, likely 1880s to 1890s. The brick octagonal structure of the officers' quarters, located on the right side of one photograph is known to be built in 1880. The size and scale of Fort Assinniboine's military post and 220,000-acre military reservation established it as one of the most massive in the United States. At one time 750 officers, enlisted men and civilians resided at the post. "Between 1879 and 1903, Fort Assinniboine served as a key component of a national military strategy to secure the International Border with Canada with respect to an overall policy of intimidation and containment of Native American nations" (Montana State Historical Society). The Fort influenced national Indian policy, in particular the Cree, Metis, Blackfeet, and Sioux nations, and impacted the lifeways of those native populations. This is a historically important collection documenting the evolution of an important military base. .

        In Darkest Africa

      New York: Scribner's, 1890 Two volumes. xv, 529 pp; xv, 472 pp. 6 etchings, 150 woodcut illustrations and maps, 2 facsimiles of pages from Stanley's notebooks, 2 large folding color maps mounted on linen. Original half dark brown morocco, vellum boards stamped in gilt. Some wear and soiling. Very good. EDITION DE LUXE, one of 250 large paper copies signed by Stanley. This beautiful production is superior in every respect, including the quality of the binding, the paper, and the illustrations, to the ordinary trade edition. Stanley, best remembered for finding Dr. Livingstone, was the greatest journalist-explorer of the nineteenth century. This book tells the harrowing story of his third expedition to central Africa, facing nearly insurmountable obstacles and dangers passing through the almost impenetrable jungle of the great Congo Forest. Stanley set off with 646 men but only 246 survived. The expedition helped lead to the foundation of British East Africa, and in along the way, the Ruwenzori mountain range and Lake Albert Edward Nyanza were discovered.

        Wild Life on a Tidal Water: The Adventures of a House-Boat and her Crew

      Sampson Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington, 1890 Hardback, gilt titles to spine.

No. 33 of a limited edition of only 500 copies. The boards are slightly bowed, more so the front board. There is some spotting to some of the tissue guards and a few of these spots are echoed on some of the plates. However they are generally clean. Later additional tissue guards have been loosely placed between the the original guards and the plates. Otherwise a rather splendid copy of a scarce book. (p18)

      1890 - [FAN ALBUM]. MEIJI ERA WOODCUT FAN PRINTS FROM KYOTO. Albums of fan prints are an interesting genre. Created as marketing tools for deluxe fan makers, they are a compilation of a season's available designs, commissioned from some of the most eminent artists of the day. Once the season was over, the samples were sold - a very limited production. They have largely disappeared from the market, almost before anyone noticed how interesting they really are. This particular example has 58 prints in all - some signed, plus a number of unsigned and quite striking Neo-Rimpa designs, as well. One or two are dated to the late 1890s. Lovely printings and colors, generally good edgeworn condition, some of the prints are damaged, a few others are a bit foxed and browned. Sewn up at some point from loose prints.

        Sammlung von 30 eigenh. Briefen mit U.

      Salzburg, Czernowitz und Hamburg, 18.X.1881-24.II.1890. - Zusammen 46 SS. Meist 4to. Inhaltsreiche Briefe an den Musikverleger und Künstleragenten Gustav Lewy in Wien. Nach Engagements in Brünn und Prag will Dellinger, seit einigen Monaten in Salzburg, nun "absolut nicht mehr bleiben" - zumal er einsehe, "daß 2 Kapellmeister hier in Salzburg ganz überflüssig sind. Zu was ist ein Operncapellmeister da, wenn keine Opern gegeben werden?" (Br. v. 18.X. 1881) - und bittet Lewy, ob dieser ihm nicht andernorts eine Stelle verschaffen könne. Durch dessen Vermittlung nach Czernowitz gelangt, "erlaube ich mir Ihnen über das hiesige Theater etwas zu berichten. Bis jetzt wurden unter meiner Leitung: Boccaccio, Glocken [.] gegeben [.]" (Br. v. 29.XI. 1881). 1883 kam der in Graslitz (Böhmen) geborene Dellinger schließlich an das 1858 gegründete Carl Schultze-Theater in Hamburg, wo er fast zehn Jahre tätig sein sollte. Aus dieser Zeit stammen auch die meisten Briefe, in denen Dellinger Ausführliches über seine Tätigkeit daselbst zu berichten weiß. Unterm 17. August 1884 etwa schreibt er dem Verleger: "Hören Sie und staunen Sie! Der Bettelstudent soll in Mexiko in spanischer Sprache aufgeführt werden [.] [Der hiesige Consul] bat mich an Sie zu schreiben, wegen Aufführung, Partitur u. Buch [.]"; am 13. März 1887 etwa notiert er: "Gestern Abend hatten wir Premiere des Vice admirals. Seit ich hier in Hamburg bin, hatte ich noch kein solch’ Premierenpublikum gesehen, wie das gestrige. Das Gros des Publikums war Opposition [.]". - Neben Werken anderer sind es freilich auch eigene Werke, über die Dellinger - der in Hamburg zu komponieren begonnen hatte - mit Lewy korrespondiert, so etwa über seine erste Operette ‘Don Cesar’, die - 28. März 1885 in Hamburg uraufgeführt - Dellingers Ruhm begründete und die ihm u. a. auch in den USA zu reüssieren verhalf: "Cesar hat hier einen wirklich großen Erfolg errungen, in künstlerischer wie in pekuniärer Hinsicht [.]" (Br. v. 17.IV. 1885). Über die im Jahr darauf uraufgeführte ‘Lorraine’ etwa teilt er dem interessierten Verleger mit, daß er sie bislang "nur für Amerika u. England verkauft habe [.]" (Br. v. 1.VIII. 1886). - Nach diesen für Dellinger so produktiven wie erfolgreichen Jahren in Hamburg wurde der mit der Operettensängerin Anna Maria Eppich (1864-1919) verheiratete Künstler nach Dresden verpflichtet, wo er 1910 im Alter von 53 Jahren geistig umnachtet sterben sollte. "Die Wiener Operettenklassik endete mit dem Schaffen von Dellinger. Allein mit seinem einmaligen Ständchen ‘Komm’ herab, o Madonna Teresa’ (‘Don Cesar’) errang er Weltgeltung und Unvergänglichkeit [.]" (MGG XV, 1751). - Gustav Lewy (1824-1901) hatte lt. ÖBL die älteste Theateragentur Österreichs betrieben. - Einige der Briefe mit gedr. Briefkopf. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Er war bekannt als der König des amerikanischen Eisenbahnmarktes. Emily Quihampton Nickalls (19. Juli 1834 - 29. März 1909) war eine Outdoor-Enthusiastin aus dem 19. Jahrhundert, die als erste Frau in derselben Woche den Mont Blanc und Monte Rosa bestieg. Diese Gipfel sind die höchsten Berge in Frankreich und der Schweiz. In seiner Autobiographie, das Leben ist ein Pudding, sagt ihr Sohn Guy Nickalls, dass dies im Jahr 1868 war. Wenn das stimmt, wäre sie zu der Zeit schwanger gewesen, als sie im Oktober 1868 eine Tochter, Grace, zur Welt brachte.

Big size (27 x 37 cm, board 36 x 46 cm) group photo on an album site. Some Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) in Nigg near Cromarty. It was a rifle regiment of the British Army, the only regiment of rifles amongst the Scottish regiments of infantry. It was formed in 1881 under the Childers Reforms by the amalgamation of the 26th Cameronian Regiment and the 90th Perthshire Light Infantry. On back 6 photos of Tom Nickalls and Emily Nickalls (born Quihampton), one of this T.Nickalls in Arabian Costume (Albumen Print c. 1880/1890). Tom Nickalls (18271899) who was a famous stockjobber on the stock exchange and one of the founding members of London Rowing Club. He was known as the "king of the American railroad market". Emily Quihampton (19 July 1834 29 March 1909) was a 19th-century outdoor enthusiast who was the first woman to climb Mont Blanc and Monte Rosa in the same week. These peaks are the highest mountains in France and Switzerland. In his autobiography, Life's a pudding, her son Guy Nickalls says this was in 1868. If this is correct, she would have been pregnant at the time as she gave birth to a daughter, Grace in October 1868. Old pen description. All photos in good condition, very rare.

        The Firm of Girdlestone - A Romance of the Unromantic.

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1890. Small 8vo, viii, 399pp. Polished red calf extra, gilt-panelled backstrip, all edges gilt, original cloth upper cover bound in. A fine binding by Bayntun, in fine condition. First edition, presentation copy inscribed by Conan Doyle on the title-page: “With the author’s compliments and thanks”. A lovely copy of the first book Doyle wrote, which was his fourth published book following on the success of “A Study in Scarlet”. Doyle reputedly had an aversion to inscribing his books, especially the Sherlock Holmes titles, and, as here, very rarely even signed with his name, preferring “from the author” on the rare occasions he did inscribe a book.

      n.p., ca. 1890[?]. This manuscript can perhaps best be described as a most elegant commonplace book: our unknown scribe has lettered the title page "My Leaves" in red majuscules, and followed it with a collection of favorite passages from Whitman's best-known work, copied out in a pleasing humanist hand. The manuscript isn't signed or dated, but the style of the writing and the binding suggest that the creator was likely inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement that flourished during the final decades of the 19th century and first years of the 20th. Whether this was a personal treasure or a valued gift, it has been very carefully preserved over the years, and shows few signs of use.. 232 x 180 mm. (9 1/8 x 7"). [46] leaves with text on recto only. Original limp vellum, gilt titling, green silk ties threaded through both covers. In a contemporary (original?) hinged wooden box. With burnished gold initial at beginning of each excerpt. Occasional naturally occurring variations in color of vellum both to the binding and to a half dozen leaves, a couple of pages with small ink stains of no consequence, otherwise a very pleasing specimen featuring a lovely hand, a well-preserved binding, and leaves that are clean, smooth, and fresh.

        Correspondence with the Duke of Marlborough concerning an affair between Edith Finch, Lady Aylesford, and George Spencer-Churchill, later the 8th Duke].

      None. 1876-1890. - ORIGINAL LEDGER WITH COPIED MANUSCRIPT LETTERS FROM THE DUKE'S BIRMINGHAM SOLICITOR. Quarto (29 x 24cm), with letters written in black ink to a single side of 214 numbered leaves, out of a total of 1000. Delicate leaves akin to tracing paper. In original tan half calf with dark brown cloth boards and marbled endpapers. Together with a word-processed TRANSCRIPT of the letters produced by Gerald Leach, stapled at left margin. Joints split, but hinges remain strong. Very heavy wear to fore-edges and spine. Fair overall. A remarkable collection of private correspondence, largely between Birmingham solicitor R. Harding Milward and John Spencer-Churchill, 7th Duke of Marlborough. In January 1876, where this collection begins, a society scandal blew up when it emerged that the Duke's heir George, known as Lord Blandford, had started an affair with Edith, the wife of Heneage Finch, 7th Earl of Aylesford, who was then touring India with the Prince of Wales. With encouragement from the Prince, Aylesford promptly returned from India in order to file for divorce; an action he was already anxious to carry out on account of his own affair with a Mrs. Dilke, whose husband had recently died in suspicious circumstances, leaving her £30,000. At this time Blandford was himself involved in an acrimonious separation dispute with his wife, Lady Albertha, forcing him to regularly petition his father for loans to support his extensive debts and maintenance obligations. In order to prevent both of these potential divorces, which would have destroyed the reputations of all involved, the Duke of Marlborough's second son Randolph is known to have aggressively blackmailed the Prince of Wales and his wife Alix with allegations that the Prince himself had had an affair with Edith some years earlier (though none of this is alluded to in these letters). In the end George did divorce his wife shortly after he became the 8th Duke of Marlborough in 1883, but although he had fathered a child with Edith in Paris in 1881, he never married her, and instead wed the American heiress Lilian Warren Price, whose fortune helped restore the ailing family seat, Blenheim Palace. Amidst all this social chaos, the doughty family solicitor manages to keep the old Duke up to date with domestic affairs during his long absences in the south of France; managing repairs to the Palace, sale and rental of various properties, and even reports on the state of the gardens and trackways. When the younger Duke succeeds he also shows himself capable of clearing up his various personal issues, including packing off a troublesome Henry Allnutt to Brisbane. Milward, the lawyer, was the great-grandfather of Bruce Chatwin, who boasted that his forebear "cheated the then Duke of Marlborough out of many millions". Kenneth Rose, a journalist friend of Chatwin's, discovered that Milward had owed his creditors huge sums, and was sentenced to six years in prison, during which sentence he died. In response, Chatwin wrote: "A real operator - £108,595.15.11 is no mean sum. If only he hadn't been found out!" A fascinating and detailed collection of letters essential to any study of the Churchill family during the period of Prime Minister Winston S. Churchill's birth and childhood. Chatwin, Bruce, Elizabeth Chatwin, and Nicholas Shakespeare, "Under The Sun: The Letters of Bruce Chatwin" (London: Random House, 2010), pp.121-22. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Kreutzer Sonata

      Boston: Benj. R. Tucker, 1890. First American edition of Tolstoy's 1889 novel of sexual jealousy, self-published by translator Benjamin Tucker. The Kreutzer Sonata turns on the tormented monologue of Posdnicheff, recently acquitted of murdering his wife on the grounds of her apparent adultery: "I entered into the furrow dug formerly by my filthy suspicions, and I continually deepened it. She did the same thing." Tolstoy's account of the way that married couples turn against each other was immediately censored, both in Russia and abroad; his longtime American translator Isabel Hapgood flatly refused to translate it. Into the void stepped Boston anarchist publisher Benjamin Tucker, who printed his own unexpurgated translation of The Kreutzer Sonata in June of 1890. When Tucker refused to extend a discount on the book to department store owner John Wanamaker, who also happened to be serving as Postmaster General, Wanamaker banned The Kreutzer Sonata from the United States mails on the grounds of obscenity. The ensuing publicity and trial led to an explosion of interest in the novel. "Why," Tucker asked, "did two competing editions of The Kreutzer Sonata appear on the market before mine had had the field two months? Simply because the money was pouring into my pockets." This is the first printing; Tucker would issue several later printings under his own imprint, before his translation was republished by J.S. Ogilvie later in the year. Line 72. A near-fine example of a landmark in Russian literature and American legal history. Octavo, original full green cloth lettered in gilt. Private library label of George C. Hull to front pastedown. Spine ends and corners rubbed.
