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).

First Edition of this compendium of advice on becoming an author, by the leading writers of the day. Henty's contribution is on pages 19-21; he ends with:~My advice to boys who want to become authors is this: Write a story and get some person in whose judgment you have confidence to give you his opinion frankly whether there is any promise in it. If he says no, give the thing up altogether. If he says yes, and you really feel that you have a talent for telling stories, and find that your stories are liked by your schoolfellows, then write, and write, and write. Burn all you write, for until you are two or three and twenty you will certainly not write anything worth reading...~This copy is fine except for some cracking of the rear endpaper -- and is quite a scarce book, especially in this condition.

        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, octavo, (213 × 132 mm) Contemporary tree calf by Bickers, red and black morocco labels, spines gilt in compartments, gilt arabesque panels to the boards, checkered edge-roll, edges and endpapers marbled. Frontispiece and coloured folding map to each, folding map and coloured profile sketch to Volume II, 36 other plates in all, numerous illustrations to the text. A little rubbing at the extremities, some skillful restoration to the joints, overall a very attractive set in a pleasing contemporary binding, unusually clean and bright internally. First edition. 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 resistant to being "rescued"), his abandonment of his own rear column and his wider motives for the 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.

        Flore naturelle. Etudes par Henry Lambert.

      . [Paris, Galavais (?), ca. 1890]. Folio (52 x 34 cm). Title and index, and 80 numbered, full colour plates (loose sheets), preserved in original printed boards with tie.l A very rare work of which surprisingly little is known. The fine illustrations, which are simultanously scientifically correct and drawn with a noticeable "art nouveau flair", are by the author, who is somewhat of a mystery himself. Born Henri-Lucien Lambert (1831-1909), he is principally known for decorating porcelain. Around 1880, the Parisian firm of Galavais published his "Flore decorative", a work with only 30 plates. Stylistically, the present "Flore Naturelle" is of a slightly later period. Another rare work by Lambert published by Galavais in the same period is the "Album de la decoration". That work is stylistically more similar to the "Flore naturelle". Each plate depicts and names one or several flowering plants, either wild species and/or cultivars. The total number of different plants is about 175. The index and plate captions give their French vernacular names. "Zürich, Moritz Kreutzmann" is pasted on the front board and the title page. This is not the publisher, but merely a distributor, being described here as "Buchhandlung für Architektur und Kunstgewerbe". Board extremities a bit rubbed, a few plates with vague ink remains, some edges frayed with very short tears, but never obtrusive. In all a very good copy. Benezit 5, p. 372. Neither in Nissen BBI, nor in Tongiorgi Tomasi's "Oak Spring Flora"..

An early interesting view of the loading dock in the port of Nanaimo. "Bertram C. Towne was a photographer active in Portland, Oregon, during the period 1884-1895. From 1884-1887, B.C. Towne and Elbridge W. Moore operated the San Francisco Gallery in Portland as partners, having assumed control of the gallery after the death of W.H. Towne. At this time, the studio was also listed as "Towne & Moore." From 1888-1895, the studio operated as "B.C. Towne Photograph Company" and was located on First Street in Portland. In October, 1890, the West Shore, a popular weekly publication that promoted life in the Pacific Northwest, named Towne as a photographic contest winner in the "professional" category. Carl Mautz, in Biographies of Western Photographers (1997), states that Towne's studio "became one of the premier galleries in Portland, employing many of the best photographers in the area" and that it "published boudoir format scenes of Alaska, the Columbia River, Mount Hood, and other Northwest scenes."" (Guide to the Bertram C. Towne Photographs/ University of Washington Libraries online).
