Richard Bowdler Sharpe & John Gould, William Hart
London, 1891. This stunning hand-colored folio lithograph is from "Monograph of the Paradiseidae, or Birds of Paradise and Ptilonorhynchidae, and Bower-Birds" by Richard Bowdler Sharpe. The work was published in London by Taylor & Francis for Henry Sotheran & Co between 1891 and 1898. The "Birds of Paradise" was the idea of John Gould's but completed after his death by Sharpe. The plates were predominantly drawn by William Matthew Hart, John Gould, and John Gerard Keulemans. It was the first monograph devoted to the remarkable birds of paradise and the "last of the fine bird books" (Fine Bird Books p.107) --- The remarkable-looking Birds of Paradise have captivated western science since Magellan first brought back a skin of such a creature in 1522. The skins, highly prized by East Indian natives, was given by the ruler of Batchian (in the Mollucas) as a gift to the King of Spain. The legs and wings of the bird, however, had been removed when skinned, presumably to better show its impressive plumage. When asked why the bird had no wings or feet, the natives replied that none were needed as the bird simply floated in its heavenly paradise. Thus, the earliest descriptions of the species, and indeed even its scientific naming by Linnaeus in the 18th century as Paradisaea apoda (legless bird of paradise), perpetuated that myth. Due to the remote nature of their rain forest habitat in New Guinea, it was not until the mid-19th century that these remarkable birds were first scientifically observed and accurately described. --- Gould had intended to publish the first monograph devot … [Click Below for Full Description]

Morris, William
Kelmscott Press, Hammersmith, United Kingdom, 1891. small 8vo. publisher's original stiff vellum with washleather ties, spine lettered in gilt. (ii), 188 pages. Printed in an edition limited to 206 copies of which this is one of 200 copies printed on paper. (Cockerell 1, Peterson A1, Walsdorf 1) This has also been called The Land of Living Men or the Acre of the Undying. "This book was set up from Nos. 81-4 of the English Illustrated Magazine in which it first appeared; some of the chapter headings were re-arranged, and a few small corrections were made in the text. A trial page, the first printed at the Press, was struck off on January 31, 1891, but the first sheet was not printed until about a month later. The border was designed in January of the same year, and engraved by W.H. Hooper. This was the only book with washleather ties. All the other vellum-bound books have silk ties, except Shelley's Poems and Hand and Soul which have no ties" (Cockerell, in Sparling). "Morris approached Walter Crane about illustrating it, 'but,' as Crane later recalled, 'he was so eager to get his first book out that he could not wait for the pictures, and so the Glittering Plainfirst appeared simply with his own initials and ornaments.' Hence in 1894 Morris produced another edition of the book (see A22)-the only K[elmscott] P[ress] title to be printed twice-with illustrations by Crane" (Peterson). Finely printed in Golden type with a decorative woodcut border on the title page designed and engraved by W.H. Hooper. Ornamented with six and ten line smaller initial letters throughout the text. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Richard Bowdler Sharpe & John Gould, William Hart
London, 1891. This stunning hand-colored folio lithograph is from "Monograph of the Paradiseidae, or Birds of Paradise and Ptilonorhynchidae, and Bower-Birds" by Richard Bowdler Sharpe. The work was published in London by Taylor & Francis for Henry Sotheran & Co between 1891 and 1898. The "Birds of Paradise" was the idea of John Gould's but completed after his death by Sharpe. The plates were predominantly drawn by William Matthew Hart, John Gould, and John Gerard Keulemans. It was the first monograph devoted to the remarkable birds of paradise and the "last of the fine bird books" (Fine Bird Books p.107) --- The remarkable-looking Birds of Paradise have captivated western science since Magellan first brought back a skin of such a creature in 1522. The skins, highly prized by East Indian natives, was given by the ruler of Batchian (in the Mollucas) as a gift to the King of Spain. The legs and wings of the bird, however, had been removed when skinned, presumably to better show its impressive plumage. When asked why the bird had no wings or feet, the natives replied that none were needed as the bird simply floated in its heavenly paradise. Thus, the earliest descriptions of the species, and indeed even its scientific naming by Linnaeus in the 18th century as Paradisaea apoda (legless bird of paradise), perpetuated that myth. Due to the remote nature of their rain forest habitat in New Guinea, it was not until the mid-19th century that these remarkable birds were first scientifically observed and accurately described. --- Gould had intended to publish the first monograph devot … [Click Below for Full Description]

A Member of the Company [Frederick Daniel]
Richmond, 1891. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good binding. Frederick Daniel's Richmond Howitzers in the War is described in the Nevins bibliography as "a strictly military history of one of the Confederacy's most famous batteries; a few personal insights appear amid the flood of facts." The other Civil War references agree that this account is a largely factual narrative, by a member of the First Company, spanning the breadth of the War in its most important theater.

(YEATS, William Butler) GANCONAGH, pseud.
T. Fisher Unwin. (Pseudonym Library) 1891 Half title. Uncut in orig. mustard yellow envelope wraps; sl. dusted & marked, spine chipped & split but sound.Wade 4; quoting Symons that the initial print run consisted of 1644 copies in wrappers and 356 in cloth. Despite the disparity in numbers of the two original formats, of the ten copies offered at auction in the last 30 years, six have been in cloth and only four in wrappers. These two stories represent Yeats' only completed attempt at realistic fiction. John Sherman tells the story of a man being torn between two different cities (London and Dublin), and two different women; Dhoya is a mythological tale about the relationship between a fairy and a mortal.

Henri Fischer) puisque notre exemplaire est parfaitement conforme à ce qui suit: «Un des rares exemplaires contenant le feuillet de titre à la date de 1891 ainsi que la préface de Rodolphe Darzens. Premier recueil un peu étoffé des poésies de Rimbaud. Celles-ci ont été rassemblées par Rodolphe Darzens au cours d?une longue quête auprès de ceux qui avaient connu le poète et pouvaient encore détenir des poèmes inédits de lui. Mais l?éditeur Léon Genonceaux, dans sa hâte de voir se concrétiser le projet d?édition, fit imprimer le recueil sans en soumettre les épreuves à Darzens. Il acheva de l?indisposer en prenant pour préface les notes éparses que celui-ci se proposait de mettre en forme. Darzens engagea une plainte en contrefaçon et obtint la saisie de la presque totalité du tirage. La préface fut alors extraite de chaque volume et l?édition remise en circulation avec un titre réimprimé ne mentionnant plus la préface et portant le date de 1892.

Wilde, Oscar.
1891. London: James R. Osgood McIlvaine & Co., 1891. Sm. 4to, (8), 159 pp., pictorial title-page, 4 plates, and numerous illustrations and decorations in text by Ricketts and Shannon. Original pictorial cloth gilt, covers a bit discoloured but nicely restored by Coriander Reisbord. § First edition, 1000 copies printed. Although Wilde remained effusive about the decoration of his book (and defended it from public criticism), the printing of Shannon's four plates had been difficult. As a result of some fault in the printing process, a dusty deposit appeared on each plate, which was only noticed after the book was bound. Unfortunately the solution - wiping each plate with a flannel - removed the surface of the print and left the images rather faint, and in some cases, almost invisible. Also the binding has proved over time to be very susceptible to soiling and spotting. This copy is about average or better than most copies. Turn of the Century, 6.

Wilde, Oscar
London: Ward Lock and Co., (1891). First edition. Leather_bound. Very Good. N.d. (1891) .First edition in book form, preceded by the 1890 appearance in Lippincott's Magazine. First issue with "nd" instead of "and" 8th line from bottom p. 208. 8vo. in three-quarter midnight black morocco over specially hand made dark brown rice paper covered boards; raised hubs, spine labels lettered in gilt; top edge gilt. Binding is fine and interior is clean. vii + 334 pp. with fore edges uncut. Wilde's most famous and widely known work, this tale of horror about a dissipated "young" man whose aging and sinfulness shows not on his person but only on a painted portrait of himself that is kept locked away. Famously, the tale was a result of a luncheon between Wilde, Arthur Conan Doyle and their Lippincott publisher who challenged them to each produce a thrilling short story that would appeal to a broad, popular readership; Wilde produced "The Picture of Dorian Gray" and Doyle the Sherlock Holmes novella "The Sign of Four".

WHITMAN, WALT
Good-Bye My Fancy. 2d Annex to Leaves of Grass, 1891. FIRST EDITION. This form of Good-Bye My Fancy is not in Myerson. Myerson notes that examples in binding A are trimmed on all edges and measure 8 7/8 in. tall, while those in bindings B and C are 9 ½ in. tall. The present copy in binding A is 9 ½ in, tall and untrimmed except for the top edge. The present example may have been a special form made for presentation purposes that so pleased Whitman that he ordered those subsequently bound in bindings B and C to replicate it."Whitman, even during the final year of his life, was working on a new book, this one what he called 'an appendix to November Boughs.' ... Whitman enlisted his old printing firm, Ferguson Brothers of Philadelphia, and his old binder, Oldach, and his old emissary, Traubel, to whip this final book together and get a thousand copies printed, most of which McKay purchased to sell under the McKay imprint ... The book contained both poetry and prose (what Whitman called 'melanged prose 'as if haul'd in by some old fisherman's seine'; the poems from this volume would form the second annex of the Deathbed Edition of Leaves" (Folsom, Walt Whitman as a Maker of Books, Whitman Archive).Myerson A 13.Original deep red cloth, top edges gilt, binding A.

The second edition of one of the finest English ornithological works. Lilford was a well known for his ornithological interests, and his aviaries contained one of the finest collections of living waterfowl and birds of prey; this was open to the public one day a week. He decided to publish this book, with its fine illustrations, so people less fortunate than himself could enjoy the beauty of birds. He was one of the founders of the British Ornithologists Union as well as being the first president of the Northamptonshire Natural History Society. This set is accompanied by Gladstone's rare Handbook which provides a history of the publication of this work and an invaluable table of plates.

BOOTH, Charles.
London: Stanfords, 1891. Colour-printed map. 630 x 880mm. Laid on light canvas, as issued, repairs to folds. A map of London colour-coded to show the percentage of the population under the poverty line, with areas marked between under 10% to 70%. It was published in the appendix to Booth's 'Life and Labour of the People in London', Volume II. Examples are uncommon due to the low quality of the paper used at the time. Booth (1840-1916), owner of the Booth Shipping Line, acted in response to an 1886 Pall Mall Gazette article that claimed that 25% of Londoners lived in poverty. Booth regarded this figure as wildly exaggerated, so recruited a team of volunteer researchers to compile an analysis of social conditions based on field visits and interviews with local police, clergy and employers. The first volume of 'Life and Labour' (1889), covering the East End, showed that 35% lived in poverty. The second series, covering the rest of the city (1891) showed that no less than 30 per cent of the city's total population could be classed as poor. HYDE: Victorian Maps of London, 254.
