        Istoria D'Italia

      Pisa - Niccolo Capurro, 1891. Pisa - Niccolo Capurro, 1891 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Nine volumes of Francesco Guicciardini's masterpiece, TheHistory of Italy. Guicciardini (6 March 1483 22 May 1540) was an Italian historian and statesman. A friend and critic of Niccol Machiavelli, he is considered one of the major political writers of the Italian Renaissance. His The History of Italy paved the way for a new style in historiography, with his use of government sources to support arguments and the realistic analysis of the people and events of his time. Written during the last years of his life, this work contains the historian's observations collected over his entire lifetime and was a work intended for posterity. As Gilbert writes: The History of Italy stands apart from all his writings because it was the one work which he wrote not for himself, but for the public. The tenth and final volume contains an essay on Guicciardini's life by Professor Giovanni Rosini, appendices and a lengthy index for the entire set. In the original Italian. With the armorial bookplate of one Charles Porcher to the front pastedown of each volume. Front boards embossed with armorial insignia and the name 'Charles Porcher de Clyffe'.

      New York - Charles Scribner's Sons, 1891. New York - Charles Scribner's Sons, 1891 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An account of the expedition to rescue Emin Pasha, the governor of Equatoria, by the famous Welsh explorer and journalist Sir Henry Morton Stanley. Second US edition. Sir Henry Morton Stanley, was famous for his exploration of Africa and his search for David Livingstone. Upon finding Livingstone, Stanley allegedly uttered the now-famous greeting, Dr. Livingstone, I presumeIn 1886, Stanley led the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition to rescue Emin Pasha, the governor of Equatoria in the southern Sudan. King Leopold II demanded that Stanley take the longer route, via the Congo river, hoping to acquire more territory and perhaps even Equatoria. After immense hardships and great loss of life, Stanley met Emin in 1888, charted the Ruwenzori Range and Lake Edward, and emerged from the interior with Emin and his surviving followers at the end of 1890. But this expedition tarnished Stanley's name because of the conduct of the other Europeans: British gentlemen and army officers. An army major was shot by a carrier, after behaving with extreme cruelty. James Jameson, heir to an Irish whiskey manufacturer, bought an eleven-year old girl and offered her to cannibals in order to document and sketch how she was cooked and eaten. Stanley only found out when Jameson had died of fever. With forty-five plates throughout and three coloured folding maps tucked into pockets on the rear pastedowns of the books (collated complete).

Pages are bright, with just some light marginal age-toning and the odd spot. Some closed tears to the maps. Generally a very bright copy of a notoriously hard book to find in acceptable conition.

        NEW GRUB STREET

      Smith Elder & Co. , 1891. Smith Elder & Co. , 1891. First edition, first issue with integral title page. Original publisher's green morocco grained cloth, titled in gilt to the spine and black to the upper cover. With two page terminal adverts in volume I as called for by Sadlier. A superb, fine set, bright and crisp with just the most trivial wear to the spine tips and some hairline splits to the hinges. Overall an exceptional set. Regarded as the author's best and most influential work, it highlights the threats and opportunities of mass culture in late Victorian London. The novel has strong autobiographical elements. Edwin Reardon, a gifted scholar, finds some success as a writer, but is determined not to bow down to the pressure of commercialism. His pursuit of the moral and literary high ground and the financial difficulties it leads to is juxtaposed with those who are happy to follow the paths of commercialism and greed and who appear to derive greater success. Issued in an edition of only 750 copies, about half of which were sold to circulating libraries, it is rare encountered in commerce in original cloth, especially in such exemplary condition.

        THE LITTLE MINISTER

      Cassell , 1891. Cassell , 1891. First edition. Three volumes, all in original cinnamon cloth lettered in gilt on the spines. A near fine set, with the hinges of vols II and III showing a little wear and a couple of trivial marks to the covers, but a generally bright crisp set. Housed in a quarter morocco box. Regarded, critically speaking, as Barrie's best work of literature, this melodramatic work was a great success on publication, vying with Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles for the year's most hotly read and discussed new novel. It was adapted for the stage in 1897 and filmed on several occasions, most notably in 1934 staring Katherine Hepburn. Set in rural 1840s Scotland, the plot focuses class and social issues. The setting is based on Barrie's place of birth, Kirriemuir. Sadlier 167

        Autograph Manuscript (unsigned).

      - This Chicago journalist, essayist and children's poet penned such classics as "Little Boy Blue" and "Wynken, Blynken and Nod." Unsigned AM, 3pp, 7½" X 10" (separate leaves), n.p., n.y. Near fine. This beautifully penned manuscript, in Field's usual incredibly miniscule but highly legible hand, has been superbly bound in full dark brown calf with raised bands, gilt lettering on spine and front board (reading "EUGENE FIELD / ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT / SUGGESTIONS FOR / 'VIGNETTES' / FOR HIS / 'ECHOES FROM THE SABINE FARM' / 1891") inner dentelles, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. Very good. Spine (mainly) and edges lightly sunned to golden brown, else tight and lovely. Whoever had this bound, likely around the turn of the 20th century, also had a hand-calligraphed title page created which reads in Gothic letters, "Original Manuscript / Suggestions for Vignettes / For his / 'Echoes from the Sabine Farm." This collection was privately published in 1891 in New Rochelle, New York, and is a parody of Horace's Odes; in 1893 A.C. McClurg and Company published a trade edition. This manuscript consists of a list of 45 numbered subject ideas, starting with "1 -- A bough in leaf, from which is suspended a garland of roses" and ending with "45 -- Two little children singing from the same book." A few others at random: "8 -- Cupid scourging a maiden with a cat-o'-nine tails," "17 -- A birds-eye view of Chicago," "24 -- A smiling babe swinging from a crescent moon," "31 -- A mouse about to enter a baited trap," "38 -- An owl perched beside a tiny sparrow and regarding it yearningly," "42 -- A Roman in a hammock with his head bandaged up." Most unusual and handsome. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      London: Longmans, 1891. London: Longmans,, 1891. Original green cloth with gilt titles to spine and upper cover. Housed in a dark green cloth solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. Stevenson's Vailima bookplate signed by his secretary, Isabel Strong, to the front pastedown. Seventeen full page woodcuts by Lancelot Speed. A good copy with some wear to the edges and minor splitting to the cloth. Front hinge fragile and a little worming to the preliminary pages. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed to Robert Louis Stevenson seven days after publication. "To Robert Louis Stevenson, with the author's best regards, 20 May 91". An excellent association between the two great adventure writers of the age. Haggard's first, and most successful, adventure novel, King Solomon's Mines, was written as a consequence of reading Stevenson's just published Treasure Island: "I read in one of the weekly papers a notice of Stevenson's 'Treasure Island' so laudatory that I procured and studied that work, and I was impelled by its perusal to try to write a book for boys" (Haggard, The Days of My Life). On receipt of a copy, Stevenson immediately wrote introducing himself to Haggard. Shortly afterwards Stevenson wrote, "Further reflection on King Solomon's Mines makes me think you are one who gets up steam slowly... My case is the reverse, I always begin well, and often finish languidly or hurriedly..." Apparently the two never met, although they enjoyed a lengthy and varied correspondence, commenting with their mutual friend Andrew Lang upon each other's books and other works of the time.

Crown Quarto Edition de Luxe, limited to 652 copies (plus ten Presentation copies), each signed by the author, this being no. 409. Quarto (9 3/4 x 7 3/8 in; 248 x 188 mm). xii, 512 pp. Forty-five full page black and white illustrations, including frontispiece. Publisher's original half black roan over black cloth, with title and author's facsimile signature in gilt. Beveled boards. Professionally rebacked to original design, as usual; the inexpensive leather used by the publisher has not worn well on most of the surviving De Luxe copies. Top edge gilt. A clean and attractive copy."Dr. William Gilbert Grace was by common consent the greatest and most attractive figure that ever appeared on the cricket field. In his all-round mastery of the game, in the length of years during which he stood far above all rivals, in the amazing sum total of his cricketing achievements, and by no means least of all in the popular interest he excited, no cricketer, living or dead, has ever approached him, and it is doubtful if any ever will" (Obituary, The Guardian, Oct. 15, 1915).William Gilbert Grace (1848-1915) was an English amateur cricketer who was a key figure in the development of the sport and is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest players of all time. Universally known as "W.G," he played first-class cricket for a record-breaking forty-four seasons, from 1865 to 1908. Grace dominated the sport, and his technical innovations and enormous influence left a lasting legacy. He excelled at all the essential skills but his batting won him the most renown; he is considered to have invented modern batsmanship. His level of cricket expertise was unparalleled. In many tributes Grace was referred to as "The Great Cricketer." H S Altham, for one, described him as "the greatest of all cricketers." John Arlott summed him up as "timeless" and 'the greatest (cricketer) of them all.' CLR James, in his classic work Beyond a Boundary, included a four-chapter section, "W.G.: Pre-Eminent Victorian,' of some sixty pages. He declared Grace "the best-known Englishman of his time" and wrote of cricket as "the game he (Grace) transformed into a national institution." During Grace's lifetime his public recognition was equaled only by Queen Victoria and William Gladstone.

        "Schwimm & Bad:Anstalt". Blick auf das Gesundheitsbad in der Nähe des Sendlingertors mit sehr reicher Staffage.

      . Aquarell und Gouache von Christian Steinicken, signiert und datiert 1891, 26,5 x 33,5 cm.. Thieme-Becker Bd. XXXI, S. 568. - Interessante kulturhistorische Darstellung zum Badewesen in München. Das alte Gesundheitsbad war im Angerviertel vor der Stadt zwischen Sendlingertor und Einlass an einem Stadtbach gelegen. Es wurde im Jahr 1782 von dem Wundarzt Xaver Gumppert nach dem Muster des Hofbades auf dem Lehel gegründet. Es ist in Baumgartners "Polizei-Übersicht" mit einer Radierung von Bollinger und in Regnets "München in guter alter Zeit" auf Blatt 43 mit seinem typischen Mansardendach abgebildet. Dort sind auch die Preise für warme und kalte Bäder, Wäsche, Heizen und Schwimmschule verzeichnet. Das Bad figuriert unter verschiedenen Betreibern auch in den gängigen Stadtführern des 19. Jahrhunderts wie Söltl 1837, Förster 1838 oder Universalhandbuch von München 1845. Die Lage entspricht der heutigen Müllerstr. 45. - Es liegt ein zweites Aquarell von Steinicken bei, das das Gebäude von hinten zeigt, wo ein Kaffeehaus angesiedelt war (14,5 x 22 cm).- Der Maler, Stahl- und Kupferstecher Christian Steinicken (1831-1896) hielt in Aquarellen zahlreiche Stadtansichten von München fest. Er ist mit mehreren Arbeiten bei Maillinger und Lentner vertreten ("hervorragend schöne Farbwirkung"). Im Auftrag des bayerischen Königs Ludwig II. entwarf er das neu aus der Falkensteiner Burg zu errichtende Schloss Falkenstein in Aquarellen. - Die reizenden Blätter in tadellos frischer Erhaltung.
