His painstaking and highly detailed work was much appreciated not only by the publishing houses that employed him, such as Appleton's and Harper's, but also by the Continental Bank Note Company who for a time employed him producing plates for currency.

        The Nursery Alice

      New York : Macmillan and Company , 1890 Second Edition. The First Color Edition of Alice. Containing Twenty Colored Enlargements from Tenniel's Illustrations to "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" with text adapted to Nursery Readers by Lewis Carroll. It was intended, wrote Carroll, "to be read by children aged from nought to five. To be read? Nay, not so! Say rather to be thumbed, to be cooed over, to be dogs'-eared, to be rumpled, to be kissed..." With this new, younger readership in mind, Carroll rewrote Alice, simplifying and abridging the original text, while Tenniel redrew, enlarged, and coloured 20 of his iconic illustrations. With a 3-page Easter Greeting and a one page Christmas Greeting from the author, and two pages of the works of Lewis Carroll, following the end of the text. The covers, designed and coloured by Gertrude Thomson, has an illustration of Alice asleep under a tree, on the front, with a picture of the March Hare on the back. Glazed cover boards are rubbed and shelf worn along extremities especially at corners, with some age toning and soiling that does not impinge on the cover illustration or title. Interior pages are clean and unmarked, except for prior owner's last name inked to front paste down and short inscription inked to verso of the frontispiece page. Mechanical enlargements of 20 of John Tenniel's illustrations, from the originals and printed in color. Text printed in brown ink. The nursery version of this classic story was conceived by Carroll to be "read, to be cooed over, to be dogs' eared, to be rumpled, to be kissed" by children from nought to five." He rewrote it in a simpler and abridged format of 16 chapters. This so-called second edition, has an interesting publishing/bibliographic history: Edward Evens printed ten thousand copies of the first run on toned paper. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) rejected the entire edition, in sheets, as he felt the illustrations were "far too bright and gaudy" and subsequently the text and illustrations were reprinted. The rejected sheets, all four thousand copies, were sent to the United States and the book was published by Macmillan with a tipped-in preliminary leaf, frontispiece with tissue guard, and a title page dated 1890. (Williams, Madan and Green, p. 147.) Scarce in any condition. A perfect gift for anyone celebrating the 150th anniversary of the first publication of Alice in Wonderland during 2015. This gem of a book is the perfect introduction to Alice, a delight for readers of every age.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      The Vale, Chelsea, [1890-97]. Two pages. Written by Charles Shannon, artist, engraver, and co-founder of the Vale Press with Charles Ricketts, to Lawrence Grant White of the Royal Society of Painters-Etchers, a chatty letter mentioning, "Jackson" (Frances Ernest Jackson, a master in the revival of artistic lithography). "Dear White, We were awfully disappointed to receive your post card. I called at the Painter Etchers at about 4:30 but found you out..." Mentions he does quite understand a certain item he [White] included into the galley. Re Jackson, "I think Jackson is coming- He called in this morning at 12:30 and found us at breakfast. He promised to look in on Sunday, but there is no depending on him." He goes on to query White about the the new Penny Weekly and closes with comments on White's recent house fire: "I hope you are not seriously indisposed. Jackson gave us a graphic description of the burning of your country house and the plucky way in which your boy swamped your first editions- Do not fail us, Yours Very Truly, Chas. H. Shannon." Near fine. Shannon letters are quite scarce.

En general, ofrecemos un ejemplar, limpio en muy buen estado de conservación, harto difícil hallar completo. Antonio Cánovas del Castillo, Málaga, 1828-1897. El fundador del Partido Liberal Conservador y uno de los principales artífices de la Restauración, fue además periodista, bibliófilo, coleccionista, erudito e historiador aficionado. Interesado por la historia política de los Austrias, su primacía política hizo de él principal exponente de la escuela historiográfica conservadora y el personaje con mayor poder en el mundo académico de la Restauración. Como historiador es autor de numerosos prólogos y artículos de tema histórico y, fundamentalmente, de tres grandes obras que vertebran el eje de su pensamiento historiográfico: la Historia de la decadencia de España desde Felipe III hasta Carlos II (1854), el Bosquejo histórico de la Casa de Austria en España (1869), y los Estudios del reinado de Felipe IV (1888). También, en los años 90 patrocinó la publicación de una Historia General de España escrita por individuos de número de la RAH, ambicioso proyecto que quedó incompleto. Como es conocido murió asesinado por un anarquista italiano, Agiolillo, que actuó en venganza por los fusilamientos de Montjuic. CCPB000816807-5. Palau. 115162. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Vous verrez. Les 3 employés s'appellent Achille Heymann, Ménard et Reboul. (...) Il est indispensable (...) d'offrir un exemplaire à chacun (...) - Je passerai à la librairie écrire un mot pour chacun d'eux - Dans cette seule maison on a vendu 900 exemplaires de La Maison Tellier.

        Les chants de Maldoror Grand papier

      Paris: Genonceaux, 1890. Fine. Genonceaux, Paris 1890, Pet. in 8 (10,8x16,6cm), relié. - Rare second edition in trade, and the first French edition, one of 150 unnumbered copies on vellum, one draw with 10 japan. First edition of the famous preface Genonceaux on Lautréamont, frontispiece Jose Roy (regular cartoonist licentious works) showing a flayed skin to earth, wandering in the catacombs, a facsimile of a letter from the author 1870 . Bound in half blue calico, smooth back with a gold finial, date tail piece red morocco emphasized double nets, blue marbled paper on the boards, elegant binding pastiche signed Laurenchet. The original 1869 was never published by Lacroix, who had pledged to edit; only ten copies were stapled and delivered to the author. In 1874 another Belgian publisher, Rozez, resumed the background and edited with a title page relays. The title glory Genonceaux was without doubt have edited the Chants de Maldoror, with a real desire to make it known. After editing, he published several excerpts in newspapers: Fin de siècle (14 February 1891) and The Black Cat (12 December 1891). His preface is the result of a serious investigation, which is why it violently rejects allegations of Léon Bloy on the author. Genonceaux providing a charge of indecency, which actually took place in 1892, leaving his publishing house after editing Shrine of Rimbaud. Literature vertigo at the limit of sustainable, the excessive teenager, a total darkness, the Chants de Maldoror, or the saga of a wandering figure of evil in the world, became famous surrealist who made a true aesthetic manifesto. Few pale scattered spots on a very white paper, otherwise very good copy. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Rare seconde édition dans le commerce, et première édition française, un des 150 exemplaires non numérotés sur vélin, seul tirage avec 10 japon. Edition originale de la fameuse préface de Genonceaux sur Lautréamont, frontispice de José Roy (dessinateur attitré des ouvrages licencieux) montrant un écorché, sa peau à terre, errant dans des catacombes, fac-similé d'une lettre de l'auteur datant de 1870. Reliure en demi percaline bleue, dos lisse orné d'un fleuron doré, date en queue, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge souligné de doubles filets, papier marbré bleu sur les plats, élégante reliure pastiche signée Laurenchet. L'originale de 1869 ne fut jamais publiée par Lacroix qui s'était pourtant engagé à l'éditer ; seule une dizaine d'exemplaires furent brochés et remis à l'auteur. En 1874 un autre éditeur belge, Rozez, repris le fond et l'édita avec une page de titre de relais. Le titre de gloire de Genonceaux fut sans nulle doute d'avoir édité les Chants de Maldoror, avec un réel souci de le faire connaître. A l'issue de l'édition, il publia plusieurs extraits dans des journeaux : Fin de siècle (14 février 1891) et Le Chat noir (12 décembre 1891). Sa préface est le fruit d'une investigation sérieuse, c'est pourquoi il rejette violemment les allégations de Léon Bloy sur l'auteur. Genonceaux prévoyant une accusation pour outrage aux bonnes moeurs, qui eut lieu effectivement en 1892, quitte sa maison d'édition après avoir édité le Reliquaire de Rimbaud. Littérature du vertige à la limite du soutenable, de l'outrance adolescente, d'une noirceur totale, les Chants de Maldoror, ou l'épopée d'une figure du mal errant dans le monde, devint célèbre grâce aux surréalistes qui en firent un véritable manifeste esthétique. Rares et pâles rousseurs éparses sur un papier bien blanc, sinon très bel exemplaire.

        In Darkest Africa

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington Limited,, 1890. or the Quest, Rescue, and Retreat of Emin, Governor of Equatoria. 2 volumes, demy quarto. Original dark brown half morocco, japon on bevelled boards with the title, flag of Emin Pasha and Stanley's signature to the upper boards gilt, gilt lettered spines, top edges gilt, others uncut, dark brown silk page-markers still intact, and in place. Titles printed in red and black, photogravure portrait frontispiece of Stanley on India paper mounted (printed by Lemercier from a photograph by Walery), similar Lemercier-printed frontispiece to volume II, and 44 plates, 6 of them etchings printed in sepia, signed in pencil by G. Montbard, the rest printed on India paper and mounted, 4 maps, 3 of them folding, the 2 large area maps linen-backed, 1 folding printed table, and 103 illustrations in the text, 3 of them full-page. Spines rubbed, scratch across numbering panel of volume I, sides stained, volume I with stain in the gutter at head of a number of leaves and splash marks across rear endpapers, First edition, edition de luxe, number 199 of 250 copies signed by Stanley. Stanley's famous account of his expedition to relieve Emin Pasha (Eduard Schnitzer), the beleaguered governor of equatorial Sudan, contains some of his most celebrated writing, especially his account of the tortuous 450-mile passage through the dense Ituri rain forest. Stanley's dealings with Emin Pasha, who proved singularly resistant to being "rescued", his abandonment of his own rear column and his wider motives for his mission have all come under suspicion then and since, but the book remains a classic of African exploration. In the course of the journey Stanley met Roger Casement, then in service on the Congo, discovered the great snow-capped range of Ruwenzori, the Mountains of the Moon, a new lake which he named the Albert Edward Nyanza and a large south-western extension of Lake Victoria. Translations of In Darkest Africa appeared quickly in French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Dutch while sales of the English trade editions reached 150,000 copies. This lavishly produced edition de luxe is certainly one of the grandest publications devoted to African exploration of the entire 19th century.
