        Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh, and other pageants for a baby girl

      The 12 coloured wood engraving plates make this a truly desirable and attractive volume. Robertson was part of the talented group of artists and illustrators who flourished in London in the 1890's and he claimed to have been influenced by Crane and the Glasgow school [Houfe] - something that is clearly evident in the illustrations in this work. The work is essentially a poem, written as a play for a young one year old child. Note - Robertson is perhaps best known for his illustration that was used for the frontispiece for the first edition of Graham's Wind in the Willows. Blue / purple cloth covered boards with illustration and titling in black and yellow to both boards and backstrip. 265x210mm. 152pp plus 8pp publisher's catalogue at rear. Fading to boards and backstrip. Corners, top/tail backstrip bumped. Small edge section of ffep and first prelim is creased with a small nib of paper loss. Wonderful clean contents with tight binding.

        Black Forest Photo Album with An Unusual Relief Depicting Putti, One Blowing Bubbles, the Other, Playing Cymbals

      Berner Oberland, Switzerland. Very Good Plus. N.d., circa 1890. The front board is quite elaborate, with a beveled perimeter of a richly painted wood grain. Within is an oblong piece of walnut in the quintessential Black Forest, or in actuality, Swiss Brienzerware, style. By this is meant the delicate foliate relief vignettes which rest on lightly pitted wood. But this frames a light walnut oblong oval with the putti relief that bespeaks more eighteenth century rococo than standard Brienzerware, except that the stones and vegetation at the base are consistent with Brienzerware. The rear board of the album has a pyrographic bouquet such as was practiced by the Swiss carvers later in the nineteenth century. The album, now empty of photos, has 25 thick card leaves, and it is kept closed with a brass clasp. The spine is of brown morocco.

        THE AUTOCRAT OF THE BREAKFAST TABLE. EVERY MAN HIS OWN BOSWELL

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1890. Revised Edition. Hardcover. Some toning to the text. Neatly and recently rebacked retaining the original spine, the cloth clean and bright. Near Fine. Small octavo (3-1/4" x 5-5/8") in original flexible blue cloth. A Grolier American 100 book, this would be a run-of-the-mill copy but for the remarkable holograph additions by Holmes within. On the recto of the ad page before the title page announcing other titles by Holmes the author has handwritten the last and best known stanza of his famous poem "The Last Leaf"--"And if I should live to be/The last leaf upon the tree/In the spring,/Let them smile, as I do now,/At the old forsaken bough/Where I cling"--and SIGNED with his initials and the dates 1831 and 1890 corresponding to the date of authorship and the date of the inscription. There is some light feathering to the ink on some of the words which is likely why the poem is lightly striked with an x in pencil and written out AGAIN by Holmes on the light yellow front endpaper, again in ink, and SIGNED as before. In addition, on the front blank between the two pages with the holograph manuscript, the author has INSCRIBED and SIGNED the book: Dr. W. E. Rust/with the kind regards of/Oliver Wendell Holmes. Dr. Rust was a surgeon operating in California in the 1850s and was contracted by the U.S. Government in the 1870s to work with the Apaches.

        Original Watercolor from "David Copperfield"

      London 1890 - Original Watercolor from "David Copperfield" KYD, [illustrator]. [DICKENS, Charles, Author]. Original Watercolor from "David Copperfield." Titled "Uriah Heep." [London: 1890]. Measures 14 x 10 1/2 inches. Matted, framed and glazed. Picture depicts Uriah Heep looking like he is up to something with his hands crossed and a sly look on his face. He is standing next to a desk and chair with what looks like a newspaper in the background. A very charming piece. Uriah Heep is a fictional character created by Charles Dickens in David Copperfield. The character is notable for his cloying humility, obsequiousness, and insincerity, making frequent references to his own "'humbleness". His name has become synonymous with being a yes man. He is the central antagonist in the later part of the book. HBS 66577. $1,750

        Hedda Gabler. Skuespil i fire akter.

      Copenhagen: Gyldendalske Boghandels Forlag, 1890 - Octavo. Original pale green paper wrappers printed in red and black. Brown cloth slipcase and chemise. A little browned as usual, wrapper edges very slightly chipped in places, a very good copy. First edition, wrappers issue, of the defining stage work of the period, ushering in one of the theatre's first truly developed neurotic female protagonists almost a decade before Freud's first work of psychoanalysis. Under the illusion that it was necessary for copyright protection, Ibsen had 12 sets of sheets sent to England for advance publication there five days earlier than this. This first published edition is more often encountered in a decorative cloth case binding: the wrappers issue is a rarer survival. The text was published on 16 December 1890, but the play was not premiered until 31 January 1891, at the Königliches Residenz-Theater, Munich. PMM 375.

        Das Kapital / Buch One

      Hamburg: Verlag Von Otto Meissner, 1890 Hamburg: Verlag von Otto Meissner, 1890. Two Forewords by Marx himself, two more Forewords by Friedrich Engels. Entire text in German. Fourth Edition. Octavo, [XXXII] 739 pp. Half russet morocco leather with brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Light peripheral wear; dedication page separated, some paper repair to last page of text at lower right corner (not affecting text), occasional light pencil annotations in German, else better than Very Good. Please see scans. A scarce early Meissner edition of Book One of Karl Marx's seminal political/economic treatise, Das Kapital, in the original German, as he wrote it. Here was first propounded, in depth, the notion that a capitalist's profit from materials and machinery is ultimately impossible, and thus must be taken from workers through forced labor beyond the measure of compensation offered for that labor. Regardless of how much merit Marx's views in the end did or did not contain, there is no doubting the depth of thought and work that went into the clear expression those views, nor the impact that the publication of Das Kapital has had on this planet since. A sturdy, handsome, even elegant binding after the German fashion of the time. With two forewords by Friedrich Engels, in addition to two of Marx's own, running to about thirty pages in total. L-39n

      1890 - Maine, Sir Henry Sumner [1822-1888]. On Early Law and Custom. London: John Murray, 1890. 402 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary signed morocco binding (by J. Low), all edges gilt, gilt spine with raised bands, gilt heraldic device of the Law Society of the United Kingdom to front board, presentation bookplate to front free endpaper. Light rubbing to extremities, negligible light fading to spine, boards slightly bowed, crack to text block between front free endpaper and following leaf. Interior notably fresh. * "New Edition." First published in 1883 as, Dissertations on Early Law and Custom. Like the equally distinguished Village Communities in the East and the West (1871) and the Early History of Institutions (1875), this treatise considers aspects of traditional societies to establish and illustrate the normal process of development in legal and political ideas, most notably freedom of contract. "Maine indicates the place in the development of a legal system of such agencies as legal fictions and equity. He explains the history of the concept of a law of nature; and in his account of the contrast between primitive and modern society--between the place which the law of persons occupies in primitive and modern law--he comes to the famous conclusion that the government of progressive societies has been from status to contract.": Holdsworth, History of English Law XV: 363-4.

        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, title gilt to spines, dog-tooth roll gilt to the spine and corner edges, 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. The japon a little discoloured and slightly rubbed as often, but the morocco solid, clean and unchipped, joints barely creased, tan-burn from the turn-ins, occasional foxing verso of the mounting sheets, plates unaffected, and the etchings showing some slight marginal discolouration, but overall a very superior copy of a set which while handomely presented, is often encountered somewhat tired and unprepossessing. First edition, edition de luxe. Number 195 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.
