        History of Greece, and of the Greek People, From the Earliest Times to the Roman Conquest (Edition De Grand Luxe, 8 Volumes, Complete)

      Estes and Lauriat / University Press, Cambridge, Boston 1890 - Edition de Grand Luxe, Limited to 250 numbered copies, of which this set is number 228. Printed on Imperial Japanese Vellum, printed at the University Press, John Wilson and Son, Cambridge. This set traces Greek history beginning with "Legendary History", ca. 2000 B.C., discussing the various Greek tribes and states, gods, heroes, and statesmen; through the Roman invasions and the Macedonian Wars. ***ABOUT THE AUTHOR(S): Jean Victor Duruy (1811-1894), French historian and statesman, devoted his life to education, serving as Chair in the College of Henri IV at Paris for over 25 years and introducing many reforms including secondary education for girls by lay teachers and the introduction of modern history and languages to the curriculum. He wrote many historical works, and is perhaps best known for his histories on the Greeks and Romans. The Introduction was written by John Pentland Mahaffy (1839-1919), Irish classicist and scholar, who held the Chair in Ancient History at Trinity College, Dublin from 1871, becoming Provost in 1914; while at Trinity he was acquainted with Oscar Wilde and seemed to share his wit; Wilde described Mahaffy as his "first and greatest teacher" (author info from Wikipedia). ***PROVENANCE: This set has the initials of the prior owner in gilt, surrounded by a gilt laurel wreath, on the front board: the initials are "WBH"; per a printed statement after the limitation statement, "This copy has been printed and specially bound for Wm. B. Hayden". The set was subsequently owned by William H. Berg, the president of Standard Oil of California from 1937-1940 (now Chevron Corp.); we acquired the set from his family. ***DESCRIPTION: Eight volumes, half crimson leather over marbled boards, "WBH" surrounded by laurel wreath in gilt on front board, gilt lettering and decorations to spine direct, five raised bands also with gilt decoration, top edge gilt, others uncut, marbled endpapers in light blue and gold on ivory paper, printed on Imperial Japanese Vellum, tissue-guarded frontispieces in each volume, title pages in red and black, which state "Containing over Two Thousand Engravings, including numerous Maps, Plans, and Colored Plates"; pagination: Vol. I Section I, xviii, 281; Vol. I Section II, 282-582; Vol. II Section I, xviii, 302; Vol. II Section II, 303-664; Vol. III Section I, xviii, 347; Vol. III Section II, 348-662; and Vol. IV Section I, xx, 313; Vol. IV Section II, 314-598 which includes a General Index at the rear. ***CONDITION: Overall very good+, as each volume has a strong, square text block, solid hinges, straight corners with a minimum of rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings; the condition issues include one volume with a split to the front board (still attached, but will need some restoration work), a few volumes having corners a bit more severely rubbed, some minor wear to the outer joints, and several of the volumes having some small loss to the head of the spines. ***POSTAGE: Please note that this is an extremely large and heavy set; the Abe standard postage you see will not cover our costs, therefore additional postage will apply. We are happy to ship both domestic and international orders at cost, please contact seller for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Mr Sponge's Sporting Tour; Mr Romford's Hounds; Handley Cross; Plain or Ringlets; Hawbuck Grange; Ask Mama

      London: Bradbury Agnew & Co. Hardcover. Near fine. Undated Subscribers Edition, c. 1890. Six volumes, extensively illustrated with hand-colored plates and b/w engravings in the text. Bound by Bayntun in three quarter red morocco and red cloth boards, gilt titles, raised bands, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. Mild rubbing to extremities; else fine. Norman Gash writes in his DNB entry on Surtees: "His books ran counter to the currents of his age in their lack of idealism, absence of sentimentality, and almost wilful flouting of conventional moralism..Yet, paradoxically, the qualities that in his own time prevented an appreciation of his talents as a writer, preserved his books in a later age from the oblivion which befell many of his more famous contemporaries....His sharp, authentic descriptions of the hunting field have retained their popularity among fox-hunters, for whom the sanitized (and in their day immeasurably better-selling) hunting novels of George Whyte-Melville have long lost their appeal. Among a wider public his mordant observations on men, women, and manners; his entertaining array of eccentrics, rakes, and rogues; his skill in the construction of lively dialogue (a matter over which he took great pains); his happy genius for unforgettable and quotable phrases; and above all, his supreme comic masterpiece, Jorrocks, have won him successive generations of devoted followers.

        In Darkest Africa

      London, Sampson, Marston, Searle, and Rivington,, 1890. or, The Quest, Rescue, and Retreat of Emin, Governor of Equatoria. 2 volumes, quarto. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in dark brown half morocco over vellum boards, with the title, flag of Emin Pasha and Stanley's signature to the front boards gilt copied from the original, titles to spines gilt, top edges gilt, others uncut. With titles printed in red & black, portrait frontispiece of Stanley, illustrated by various artists, 45 plates (including 6 etched plates signed in pencil by the artist G. Montbard), 4 maps (3 folding), 1 folding printed table, and 103 illustrations in the text (3 full-page). The occasional minor blemish, an excellent copy in a fine binding. First Edition, Edition de Luxe. One of 250 numbered copies signed by Stanley In February of 1887 Stanley led a party from the mouth of the Congo to rescue Emin Pasha (the German naturalist, Eduard Schnitzer) who had been appointed Governor of Equatoria by General Gordon, and had been abandoned in command of the Egyptian Army when the Mahdi overran the Sudan. Leaving a rearguard at Yambuya he crossed five hundred and forty miles of absolutely unknown country, much of it dense tropical forest. "For five months the party were hidden under this 'solemn and foodless forest', scarcely ever seeing the open sky, or a patch of clearing [until reaching the Albert Nyanza on 13 December]...where Stanley expected to find Emin and the steamers he was known to have at his disposal. The Pasha, however, was not there nor were his vessels. The governor, as it turned out, was by no means anxious to be rescued in the sense intended by his English friends. Relief, in his view, did not include being relieved of his governorship or coming away as a fugitive...for nearly three months the relief column awaited him in vain [before Stanley left to join his decimated rearguard, collect its remnants on the shores of Lake Albert in January 1889 and march to the coast]...and in the course of the journey discovered the great snow-capped range of Ruwenzori, the Mountains of the Moon, besides a new lake which he named the Albert Edward Nyanza, and a large south-western extension of Lake Victoria. On the morning of 4 December 1889 the expedition reached the ocean [but Emin Pasha had transferred himself to the German service and Stanley returned home without him]. Thus, the expedition had failed to achieve its primary object. It had, however, accomplished great things" (DNB). Translations of In Darkest Africa appeared quickly in French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Dutch while sales of the English trade editions totalled a hundred and fifty thousand copies.

        Ein Hungerkünstler (A Hunger Artist)

      Berlin and Leipzig: S. Fischer Verlag. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good/Fine. FIRST PRINTING IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS. A SURREAL MEDITATION ON ASCETICISM AND ART. " 'A Hunger Artist,' the story of a circus performer whose 'act' consists of forty-day fasts committed alone behind the bars of a cage…Slowly the art of fasting falls out of fashion; forgotten, the hunger-artist dies unnoticed behind his bars…Kafka is the antic poet of everyday fear, shame and stoical yearning. The art is subversive, even playful. He deals in savage inequities that are never resented, pitiful recompenses that are tearfully cherished." -Martin Amis, The War Against Cliche "One of the most highly regarded literary and cultural journals in the German language, Die neue Rundschau, which is still published today, first appeared in 1890. In Kafka's time it was the major periodical publication of one of the leading German literary presses…it published literary works by some of the most significant authors of the time, including Herman Hesse, Thomas Mann, Rainer Maria Rilke. Kafka was a regular reader of Die neue Rundschau throughout his life." After Kafka's submission of "Die Verwandlung" ("The Metamorphosis") was rejected due to its inordinate length, "Kafka was disappointed not to be able to count himself among the authors represented by this respected journal. However he did eventually join their ranks in October 1922, when the story "Ein Hungerkünstler" ("A Hunger Artists") appeared here." -Richard T. Gray, A Franz Kafka Encyclopedia IN: Die Neue Rundschau, Vol. XXXIII, Band 2, pp. 983-992. Berlin and Leipzig: S. Fischer Verlag, October 1922, pp. 961-1056. Tall octavo, original brown paper wrappers in custom silk box. Owner's signature in pencil on front-cover. Clean text, upper hinge weak, small creasing. General contents and title page laid-in. Complete with advertisements. A fantastic work, in all senses, held by outstanding wrappers.

      Copenhagen: Gyldendalske Boghandels Forlag, 1890. First edition. [iv], 236 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Original gray cloth, blocked in gilt, a.e.g. A fine copy. Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) grew up in miserable poverty in Norway. He managed to make a living as a free-lance journalist by the time he was in his mid-twenties, finally earning money for all his efforts. From there he went on to write for the theatre, and even managed a small theatre and became director of the National Theatre in Oslo, all the while writing his plays and poetry. Hedda Gabler is "possibly his most frequently performed play in the modern theatre . . . Ibsen's influence on the whole course of modern drama may be indicated by the inclusion of his plays in the repertoire of every avant-garde theatre of his day.".

        Utagawa Kunimasa IV Actor Print

      Tokyo, Japan: Hasegawa Sonokichi, 1890. Artist: Utagawa Kunimasa IV 1848-1920. Series/Title: Possibly from the series atari kyogen haiyu ude kurabe, but that series title does not appear on the print. Actor print. Size: HxW 14.4 x 9.3 inches, each of three panels of a triptych. Oban tate-e. Date: 1890 (Meiji 23) Signed: Oju Kochoro ga, with toshidama seal. Publisher: Hasegawa Sonokichi. Address of publisher contained within cat-shaped cartouche: Tokyo Nihonbashi Kotenmacho Sanchome 17-banchi . Colors: Excellent colors, somewhat understated but not much faded. Two shades of red, two shades of blue, and a medium brown are the principal colors. Secondary colors include charcoal and soft green. Condition: Margins are mostly trimmed, except that top edges are untrimmed and the left edge of the left sheet is mostly untrimmed. Washi [?] paper. Unbacked. The three panels are carefully pasted together from the reverse side along either vertical edge of the center sheet. Slight evidence of former pasting along part of the top of the reverse side. A few very small worm holes at the bottom of the left and right sheets. Almost no soiling. Very Good as to impression. The lines are reasonably clean and clear, neither crisp nor mushy, suggesting a pull neither early nor late. No off-setting apparent. Overall rated Very Good. Comments: Originally born Takenouchi Hidehisa, the artist used multiple go (artist names) during his career including Baido Hosai, Baido Kunimasa, Kochoro, Kunimasa IV, Kunisada III and Toyokuni V. Early in his career he used the go Kunimasa IV and Baido Hosai. In 1889 he succeeded as head of the Utagawa line and took the go Kunisada III. Later in his career he claimed the title Toyokuni IV, but that go was already taken (a fact that he refused to recognize), so he is referred to as Toyokuni V. This triptych features the actors Ichikawa Danjuro at right, Onoe Kikugoro at center, Onoe Kikugoro at center left [playing a second role], and Ichikawa [first name undeciphered] at far left..

        Hunting in the Dakotas. Collection of 35 photographs of outdoor scenes, including views of hunters and their game bag; goose hunting in dugout blinds in stubble of a harvested field; hunting dogs; and views of landscapes and farms

      [Twin Lakes, No. Dakota, 1890. 35 mounted albumen photographs, 15 captioned in pencil. 5 x 7 inches, on gilt-edged card mounts 8 x 10 inches. Generally very good (ten photographs quite faded). Outstanding group of photographs documenting bird hunting in the Twin Lakes area of north central North Dakota (northeast of Bismarck) in the late nineteenth century. Scenes include several of the hunters and their arrayed bag of geese, ducks, grouse, and snipe; turf houses and barns; a wooden farmhouse on the prairie; the hunters' tent camp and wagons; and the narrow stretch of ground between the Twin Lakes. One of the most interesting views shows two hunters standing in dugout pits in the stubble of a harvested field with a long line of decoys behind them; this photograph is the only one to identify the hunters by name (Cummings on the left and Dr. Booth on the right); a second, uncaptioned photograph shows the two men from a different angle, with one of the dogs. The "Lunch" photograph shows a circle of four men and their dog seated in the high grass eating (one hunter taking a pull at a small dark bottle) beside their wagon and tethered horses. Other captions note: "1 afternoon bag, 3 men, 88 geese, 4 varieties"; "Our dogs, 4 pointers 1 setter"; "Duck slue in No. Dakota"; "Mixed bag, ducks, geese, snipe, plover"; four hunters and their dog with their bag of "Sharp tail grouse, ducks, and snipe"; "Rex on point"; the wagon carrying the party of six, titled "grouse hunting"; and other untitled photographs of the same group of men. Several of the wide view photographs are reminiscent of the sporting illustrations of A.B. Frost. A few of the photographs are quite faded, but even in these the scenes can still be discerned. A substantial group of images of sporting life from Dakota frontier.

Including these drawings entitled: "Greenport", "Deering Harbor, S.I.1884", "Deering Harbor/85", "Stearns Point-Shelter Island", Maontauk Light, L.I./85", "Skipper of sloop-on trip to Montauk", Shelter Island" & Merretts Brook-Putnam Co. NY." Harley DeWitt Nichols (1859-1939) was born in Barton, Wisconsin. He began his education in art as early as 11 years of age. His first job putting his talent and training to use came in the form of an apprenticeship with the Milwaukee firm Marr & Richards, where he stayed for 3 years, drawing and engraving on wood. The subsequent years included many moves, from Milwaukee to Chicago, and later to New York, where he studied at ASL and was encouraged by Professor Packard to pursue a career as an illustrator at a European school. Nichols left for Munich in October 1885 to attend the Royal Academy, where he studied under Heckel, became a member of the American Club, and socialized with Carl von Marr, the club's president. He went to London for a little while, and worked as an illustrator. By 1893 he'd returned to New York, working mostly in advertising, and illustrating for Harper's Weekly and Century magazines. He helped organize the New York Water Color Club. Nichols didn't curb his parapatetic lifestyle until he moved to Laguna Beach, California, in 1894. The art community in Los Angeles was in its infancy, but he got a teaching job at the Echo Mountain summer school, and he was inspired by the scenery of Yosemite, Monterey, San Juan Capistrano, and other locations in southern California. He stayed in Laguna Beach until hs death in 1939.
