        Poems by the Way

      (Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1891). Octavo. (vi), 197, (vii)pp. First edition. One of 300 copies printed on paper. Presentation copy inscribed by Morris on second preliminary blank to Theodore Watts (-Dunton). Best known as the rescuer of Swinburne, Watts-Dunton was a respected literary critic and a friend to many in the Pre-Raphaelite circle, especially Rossetti. He was also a steady patron of the Kelmscott Press: in his bibliography, Peterson cites several presentation copies given to Watts-Dunton, including this one. An edition of Watts-Dunton's first book of poetry, The Coming of Love, had been planned for the Press, but it was never carried out (see Peterson B4). Poems by the Way is the second book of the Press, and the first printed in red and black. This marks the first appearance of many of the poems, one of which ("Goldilocks") was written especially for this book. A beautiful book designed by Morris, with a wide, white vine border to page one, and many ten-line and six-line initials of cunning design. Light soiling to spine, else fine in stiff vellum, ribbon ties detached and laid in. This copy belonged to English poet and playwright John Drinkwater, who published a critical study of William Morris in 1912. With his leather booklabel on front paste-down and ink ownership inscription.

        Crozet's Voyage to Tasmania, New Zealand

      London,: Truslove & Shirley, 1891.. Octavo, eight photogravure plates, folding plan of outrigger canoe and large folding chart (corner of title page clipped, tear to map repaired with paper tape); a good copy in the original cloth.. First English translation of Crozet's account of the South Pacific voyage of Marion-Dufresne, who in 1771 sailed to return the Tahitian native Ahutoru, who returned to Paris with Bougainville.The expedition was launched from Mauritius where the traveller AbbÈ Rochon was stranded; although he was denied permission to sail with the expedition Rochon later edited the present narrative from Crozet's log. The account contains a brief account of the Tasmanian Aborigines and a longer description of traditional Maori life, rich with primary information on food, hunting, warfare, shelter, fishing etcetera. After some misunderstanding Marion-Dufresne and about twenty crew were massacred by the Maori; the present edition contains Rochon's speculations on the cause of the massacre with an additional mid nineteenth-century anecdotal account included. Numerous scattered vignettes clarify issues in the narrative and there are informative appendices: aside from discussion of the massacre there is an appendix on the early literature of New Zealand and another on native canoes taken from Anson's Voyages. The edition was limited to 500 copies.Hill, 402; Hocken, p.22; New Zealand National Bibliography, C1808.

        Astrarchia Stephane [Princess Stephanie Bird of Paradise]

      London: Taylor & Francis for Henry Sotheran & Co., 1891-98. Hand-coloured lithograph by William Hart, printed by Mintern Brothers. Very good condition. 21 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches. A beautiful print from Sharpe's 'Monograph of the Paradiseidae, or Birds of Paradise, and Ptilonorhynchidae, or Bower Birds'. Sharpe's work on the most spectacular of all bird families depicts the birds of paradise in all their glowing splendor, whilst the bower birds are pictured with their elaborately constructed "bowers", surrounded by the shells, bones and other small found objects with which they decorate the bower thresholds in an instinctive attempt to provide the finest backdrop to their highly elaborate courtship displays. R. Bowdler Sharpe was John Gould's assistant for many years and was the only man knowledgeable enough and sufficiently attuned to the famous ornithologist's vision to complete several of his works. Sharpe's comments in his monograph strike a chord with contemporary feelings on the preservation of endangered species. Writing of the then current fashion for decorating women's hats with the feathers of rare Birds of Paradise, he concludes 'What will be said in the future by the civilized world and its scientific investigators when they find that we had the chance of learning the habits of these extraordinary birds, and allowed them to pass out of existence for the adornment of our women-folk, with scarcely a word of protest'. Fine Bird Books (1990) p.142; Nissen IVB 865; Whittel p.663; Wood p.565; Zimmer p.581.

        Siberia and the Exile System

      London: James R. Osgood, McIlvaine & co.,, 1891. 2 volumes octavo. Original sand cloth, title and double-headed Imperial eagle gilt to the spines and upper boards, top edges gilt, the others uncut. Frontispiece to each and numerous illustrations and maps to the text, some full-page. A little soiled and slightly rubbed, corners bumped, light toning, a scatter of foxing to the endpapers, but overall very good. First UK edition, US printed and published in the same year as the US edition. Kennan first visited Russia in 1864 at the age of 19, working for the Russian American Telegraph Company surveying a telegraph route through Siberia and across the Bering Strait. On his return he published Tent Life in Siberia, and soon became well-known on the lecture circuit, and from magazine and newspaper articles. A further visit to Russia and Dagestan secured his reputation as an authority on the region, and a position as Assistant Manager with the Associated Press followed. "In 1885 he was commissioned by … the Century Company to visit Russia and make a study of the horrors of the prisons in Siberia. Accompanied by an American artist George A. Frost, he went to Siberia somewhat prejudiced against the revolutionaries and sympathetic with the Czar's efforts to maintain law and order and a stable government … But the year which he spent, meeting and talking with Russian patriots in exile and sharing their hardships changed his point of view … Siberia and the Exile System was the first revelation outside the bounds of Russia of the medieval and cruel character of the Romanoff government, and its publication had much to do with the overthrow of the Romanoff régime in Russia" (DAB).

        Original Art 'Gadwall'.

      - Charles De Feo (1891-1978) was commissioned by The House of Seagram to illustrate two Gadwall in flight in the late 1940s. The artwork was used by Seagram's for their promotional advertising. Mr. De Feo's original drawing (signed in the lower right corner) is the more colorful piece shown at the top, and the published and much touched-up (and quite somber) version is mounted below. Each measures 11 3/4 x 9 with the overall dimensions of 28 x 18. Charles De Feo was a well-respected outdoor artist who illustrated many books and magazines, to include Outdoor Life, Sports Afield, Cosmopolitan plus many others. Perhaps he is best remembered for his exquisite drawings of salmon in Roderick Haig-Brown's 1941 publication of Return to the River. Professionally mounted, matted and framed. In fine condition.

        Autograph letter signed to his friend and patron, Oskar Grohe

      2 pp. Octavo. Dated April 1, 1891. In German (with translation). Regarding the forthcoming first performance of his cantata, Christnacht.& & "Please be so kind as to let me know directly, or through Weingartner, if the orchestral rehearsals of Christnacht have already started and how they have gone so far. Please also send word as to when the dress rehearsal is scheduled. If only you could get Weingartner to write me a note!" . Wolf's cantata, Christnacht, to a text by August Graf von Platen-Hallermünde, was first performed under the noted Austrian conductor Felix Weingartner (1863-1942) on April 9, 1891 in Mannheim, "the last concert to be conducted by Weingartner at Mannheim before he left to take up an appointment with the Berlin Opera." Walker: Hugo Wolf, p. 285. & & Apparently conceived as the composer's "answer to Bach's Christmas Oratorio..." & & "... The first sketches for the work are dated Christmas Eve 1886... In a letter to Oskar Grohe (26 February 1891), Wolf wrote that he had conceived the composition as a portrait of Christ's personality in two manifestations, the child and the ‘Weltüberwinders’, or hero who overcame the world. At the end, these themes and other musical ideas merge and unfold ‘with tongues of flame the dogma of God made man and of salvation’, he told Grohe, adding that if the execution did not keep pace with the concept it was ‘nobody's fault but my own’... Christnacht has much to commend it and many admirable effects in the lengthy orchestral introduction alone... But Wolf being neo-Bachian/Lisztian in huge brass-laden choruses is Wolf being bombastic, especially in the chorus of believers (Platen indicates shepherds here, but this was insufficiently solemn for his purposes, so Wolf told Grohe, hence their new designation as ‘Gläubigen’) and the final chorus, and the work is in consequence not an unmitigated success..." & & Wolf "intensified the expressive vocabulary of the lied by means of extended tonality and post-Wagnerian declamation while retaining the defining elements of the song tradition he had inherited from Schubert and Schumann. Profoundly responsive to poetry, he incorporated detailed readings of his chosen poems in the compositional decisions he made about every aspect of song: harmonic nuances, tonal form, melodic design, vocal declamation, pianistic texture, the relationship of voice to piano, etc. Seeking an art ‘written with blood’, he went below the surface of poetry – even where his musical purposes were inevitably distinct from the poet's – in order to recreate it in music of remarkable intensity, written, as he once proclaimed, for epicures, not amateurs."

        The Picture of Dorian Gray

      London: Ward, Lock & Co.,, 1891. Small quarto. Original half vellum, gilt-lettered bevelled gray paper boards, olive endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Housed in a quarter purple morocco slipcase and chemise. Corners and joints professionally repaired, spine and boards toned, minor cracks to hinges, a little light spotting to blanks but overall text clean and fresh. An excellent copy. Rare and most desirable large-paper first signed limited edition, number 194 of only 250 copies printed on Van Gelder handmade paper and signed by Wilde, of his only novel. Considered by many to be his greatest work, it combined the supernatural elements of the Gothic novel with the sins of French decadent fiction. Wilde insists in the Preface, "There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That's all" (p. vi). Critics nevertheless attacked the work for its immorality. Though Wilde claimed, "I wrote this book entirely for my own pleasure… Whether it becomes popular or not is a matter of absolute indifference to me," he also responded to critics: "Leave my book, I beg you, to the immortality that it deserves." Dorian Gray first appeared in Lippincott's magazine simultaneously in Philadelphia and London, on June 20, 1890. This publication was immediately followed by publication of an unauthorized, pirated version of the tale, printed June 22, 1890 in New York by M. J. Ivers & Co. Wilde then substantially revised the work and added six new chapters. This deluxe signed edition is of considerably greater rarity and value than the unsigned first trade edition issued three months earlier. At least one contemporary review praised this edition in particular: "the book, with its unique and piquant binding and lettering, its characteristic title page and yet more characteristic preface, is a delight to eye and hand" (Glasgow Herald). Title page, half title, and cover designed by Charles Ricketts, who designed the bindings of many Wilde volumes.

        ROUND THE WORLD WITH TRAIN A TYPHOON BEING THE CONFESSIONS OF A PRIVATE SECRETARY CONCERNING A TOUR OF THE WORLD IN SIXTY-SEVEN DAYS

      Boston: The Round the World Publishing Company, [1891].. [6],3,[3],312pp., printed in double columns, profusely illustrated with hundreds of half tones from original photographs, as well as in-text illustrations, plus a double-page map illustrating the route of the trip. Oblong 12mo. Original pictorial rust-colored cloth, gilt, spine gilt. Front joint cracked, holding by cloth, titlepage loosening. Light even tanning. Very good. A marvelous, illustrated account of a round the world trip by the noted American businessman, Presidential candidate, and eccentric, George Francis Train. Train was active in organizing clipper ship service around Cape Horn, in constructing the western portion of the transcontinental railroad, and in Australian business and civic life as well. In 1872 he ran for President of the United States. Train was also a prolific traveller, and made his first lightning trip around the world in 1870, which is believed to have been an inspiration for Jules Verne's AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS. In 1890, Train made his third circumnavigation, this time completing the trip in sixty-seven days. This volume, written by Samuel W. Wall, Train's secretary, records the journey. The copious photographic half tones are from Wall's original photographs taken during the trip, and other illustrations were drawn by G.H. Blair. The trip began in Tacoma, Washington, and then proceeded across the Pacific with stops in Yokohama, Kobe, Nagasaki, Hong Kong, Singapore, Ceylon, Aden, Suez, Port Said, various places in Europe, then to England and Ireland, and finally to New York and back to Tacoma. Wall used a Kodak camera to record the trip, and each page of illustrations carries three circular views. There are sixty-six views of Japan, thirty of Hong Kong, twenty-one of Singapore, twenty-one of Ceylon, and on through the other places visited. In all, there are some three hundred half tone illustrations from Wall's original photographs. The text describes the trip in great detail, and carries a bit of a humorous tone (as do some of the photographs). This book is not listed in Smith's bibliography of American travellers abroad, though it certainly fits the criteria and Smith includes other works by Train (but none by Wall). OCLC locates eleven copies, but in our experience this book is scarce in the market. OCLC 9188459.

        The Picture of Dorian Gray.

      London: Ward, Lock & Co., 1891 - Small quarto. Original half vellum, gilt-lettered bevelled gray paper boards, olive endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Housed in a quarter purple morocco slipcase and chemise. Corners and joints professionally repaired, spine and boards toned, minor cracks to hinges, a little light spotting to blanks but overall text clean and fresh. An excellent copy. Rare and most desirable large-paper first signed limited edition, number 194 of only 250 copies printed on Van Gelder handmade paper and signed by Wilde, of his only novel. Considered by many to be his greatest work, it combined the supernatural elements of the Gothic novel with the sins of French decadent fiction. Wilde insists in the Preface, "There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That's all" (p. vi). Critics nevertheless attacked the work for its immorality. Though Wilde claimed, "I wrote this book entirely for my own pleasure Whether it becomes popular or not is a matter of absolute indifference to me," he also responded to critics: "Leave my book, I beg you, to the immortality that it deserves." Dorian Gray first appeared in Lippincott's magazine simultaneously in Philadelphia and London, on June 20, 1890. This publication was immediately followed by publication of an unauthorized, pirated version of the tale, printed June 22, 1890 in New York by M. J. Ivers & Co. Wilde then substantially revised the work and added six new chapters. This deluxe signed edition is of considerably greater rarity and value than the unsigned first trade edition issued three months earlier. At least one contemporary review praised this edition in particular: "the book, with its unique and piquant binding and lettering, its characteristic title page and yet more characteristic preface, is a delight to eye and hand" (Glasgow Herald). Title page, half title, and cover designed by Charles Ricketts, who designed the bindings of many Wilde volumes. Mason 329. [Attributes: First Edition]

This copy bears a printed presentation leaf to John Stirling, who served as Chief Constable for Grimsby. The apparent occasion was the opening of the Queen Mary Hostel in 1925.

        A Study in Scarlet. [A Sherlock Holmes Novel] With forty illustrations by Geo. Hutchinson

      London, Ward, Lock, Bowden, & Co., 1891, 1891. SECOND ENGLISH EDITION First fully illustrated edition. 8vo., pp. 224 + (24) catalogue. Elegantly hand-bound in full red oasis morocco leather, spine gilt-lettered in six compartments with raised bands, black endpapers, top edge gilt, publisher's original cloth bound in at rear. Internally clean. An attractive copy of this first fully illustrated edition of the first Sherlock Holmes novel, which appeared in December 1891. The publication of 'A Study In Scarlet' is as follows; The first appearance was in Beeton's Christmas Annual, [November 1897] FIRST EDITION (in bookform, with six line drawings) published July 1888 (reprinted March 1889). SECOND EDITION (with 40 illustrations) published 1891. NB; Confusingly, the second edition has a printed leaf noting the edition as the 'Third Edition, Illustrated'. This is because the Beeton's Annual is listed as the first edition, thus the 'first' edition of 1888 becomes their 'Second edition' and the second becomes the 'third'. The bibliography as set out above is correct; the Beeton 'edition' being an appearance, and not the first edition in bookform. The same rule applies to other Sherlockian titles such as 'The Sign of Four', (which first appeared in Lippincott's Monthly) and 'The Hound of the Baskervilles' (first appearing in the Strand Magazine). De Waal. Green & Gibson [A1c]. Listed in '100 Books That Shaped World History' [Raftery, 2002].

        Lawn-Tennis.

      Paris, Tresse & Stock 1891 In-8, percaline bradel à coins, 44 pp, couvertures conservées. Envoi. 3 lettres autographes reliées dans le volume. Edition originale du premier texte de fiction français sur le tennis. Lawn-Tennis est une pièce de théâtre dont l'auteur lié avec Antoine se proposait de faire jouer en public. Malgré le réseau qui liait Gabriel Mourey à Guy de Maupassant, Debussy, Jules Bois, Paul Adam avec lesquels il avait travaillé et publié des poèmes ou des pièces de théâtre, son projet initial fut victime de la censure; un cours universitaire donné cette année-là à la Sorbonne a traité longuement de cette affaire. En effet la lettre-préface de Antoine annonce bien à Mourey qu' ?il se produit un incident curieux et dont je ne connais pas d'exemple, c'est-à-dire que votre pièce possible à la représentation entre intimes n'est pas jouable devant un public?. Les comédiens eux mêmes furent effrayés et redoutèrent la fermeture, sur un scandale, du célèbre Théâtre-Libre. Antoine, tout en faisant pression sur Mourey, dénonce ?cette hypocrisie toute Britannique spéciale au gens assemblés qui, individuellement, commettent un tas de saletés sans la moindre vergogne et qui rechignent aux vérités trop nettes.? A la fin de la pièce, Camille étrangle son amie Elaine qui vient pourtant de lui avouer son amour alors qu'elle est liée à un homme dont elle est enceinte. Cet homme, Dick, apparaît dans la dernière scène joyeux, agitant sa raquette, disant ?c'est à vous de servir?, tel Escamillo aparaissant triomphant à la fin de Carmen. Exemplaire exceptionnel et unique rendu encore plus précieux par l'envoi à l'éditeur Stock et trois lettres autographes signées de Mourey. La première, datée du 3 juin 1892, adressée à Stock faisant référence à une somme due à Lanier, l'imprimeur de l'ouvrage, nous donne la preuve que, en réalité, ce livre a été imprimé à compte d'auteur (ce qui a pu contribuer à son extrême rareté). La deuxième lettre datée du 22 Juillet 1889 est adressée à Savine. Elle concerne la préface donnée à Mourey pour les poèmes et ballades de A. C Swinburne par Guy de Maupassant: ?cet homme exquis m'a même promis de la faire passer dans quelque grand journal, supplément du Figaro par exemple. Ce serait un bon coup pour la vente. Acceptez donc, c'est un livre à audaces et bien moderne, mais qui ne risque point pourtant de prolonger votre séjour à Sainte-Pélagie.? La troisième lettre datée du 18 Décembre 1889, écrite à l'encre rouge, cite Rosny et annonce la préparation par Mourey d'une traduction de poèmes de Edgar Poe Très bon couverture rigide Edition originale Signé par l'auteur

Ripley/Scribner p.172. Zimmer II, p.399.La seconda edizione di questo classico dell'ornitologia inglese venne stampato in sole 450 copie e differisce dalla prima (edita in 550 copie) solo per alcune tavole, stampate ex-novo e distribuite nelle parti VII-XVII (complessivamente l'opera venne pubblicata in 36 parti). Il lavoro e' famosa soprattutto per le magnifiche tavole (tutte ambientate) e in particolare per quelle eseguite dal famoso pittore-naturalista scozzese Archibald Thorburn (1860-1935) (di grande suggestione e bellezza le tavole dedicate ai Rapaci, agli Anseriformi e agli Uccelli limicoli), che con quest'opera suggello' definitivamente il suo successo nel campo della pittura naturalistica. La tecnica cromolitografica impiegata viene considerata dalla critica tra le migliori in assoluto nel ritrarre soggetti ornitologici. Tra le tipografie impiegate per questo lavoro, sicuramente quelle che hanno fornito i migliori risultati nella tecnica di stampa cromolitografica sono la Chromo-Litho. Art Studio di Londra e la Litho.W.Greve di Berlino (Cfr. per maggiori informazioni: C.E.Jackson "Bird Illustrators" London 1975 p.120). Il testo dell'opera venne completato da O.Salvin in quanto Lord Lilford mori' nel 1896, un anno prima dell'uscita della prima edizione (1885-1897).
