      - . an excellent run of this renowned sailing club journal, including some of the rare very early issues. the collection comprises a continous run from the issue for 1891 through to 1961 (excluding the war years 1940 to 1945, when the journal was not issued). all in the original paper covers and generally condition is very good. The Club was formed in 1883 by canoeists who had decided that the Humber Estuary conditions required heavier and more seaworthy craft, giving birth to the canoe sterned Humber Yawl design, originally an open boat, but by the begining of the 20th-century, fitted with cabin accommodation. Amongst the early designers was Albert Strange, who also contributed the cover design of many of the early 20th-century year books 003 1205 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Three etchings by John Sloan for the series of etchings entitled Westminster Abbey

      n.p., N.P. 1891 - John Sloan (1871-1951) was forced to drop out of school at the age of 16 due to the mental breakdown of his father. He got a job as a cashier at Porter and Coates, a local stationery store where he met A. Edward Newton, a fellow employee. When Newton established his own stationery business in 1890, he hired Sloan. Sloan designed greeting cards and calendars, and etchings which were used in various gift books published by Newton. Peter Morse, in his catalogue of Sloan prints, describes one of John Sloan's earliest efforts as this Westminster Series of 13 etchings and provides great detail, noting that only one complete surviving example of the booklet and etchings has survived to his knowledge which is held by The Philadelphia Museum of Art. The Delaware Art Museum holds signed copies of the etchings through the kind donation of Helen Farr Sloan. Any of these early Sloan works are extremely scarce. We have the following three etchings from this series: Morse 13. The West Front. Morse 17. Saint Erasmus' Doorway. Morse 21. The Poets Corner. Morse notes that A. Edward Newton's name does not appear anywhere in the booklet or on the etchings, but assigns them to Newton on their similarity to other projects executed by Sloan for Newton. The three ethings have been removed from an older framing (By Schneider Art Galleries of Seattle) and measure 7 5/8 x 5 7/8 inches with the etching itself varying in size. There are remnants of glue along the top edge of the white outer border where they were mounted and framed. The margins of the outer border are foxed and stained in places. One etching has notes in pencil beneath the etching giving instructions to the framer. The etchings themselves are well preserved.

        The Chronicles of Barsetshire (8 Volumes Complete)

      London: Chapman and Hall, Limited, 1891. Octavo, 8 volumes. Original three quarters leather over marbled boards, gilt toolin the the spine, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels. Marbled enpapers. In very good condition. The Chronicles of Barsetshire " revealed a new humorist and type of humour. No such picture of the special features of cathedral society had been given before, nor has anything so good been done since, excepting the corresponding portions of Barchester Towers and the rest of the Barsetshire novels…. These, however, are much more complex, Trollope having discovered that the same gifts which enabled him to portray clergymen were equally available for other classes of society. For humour, Barcester Towers perhaps stands first; for the suspense of painful interest, Framley Parsonage; for general excellence, The Last Chronicle of Barset. They stand at the head of his writings" (Sadleir, 245).
