        LYRIC LOVE

      London and New York: Macmillan and Co, 1892. n. Hardcover. 159 x 105 mm (6 1/4 x 4 1/8"). xxii, 238 pp. Edited by William Watson. LOVELY CONTEMPORARY BLUE-GRAY CRUSHED MOROCCO, ELEGANTLY AND ELABORATELY GILT, BY BUMPUS (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with delicate filigree frame and large, densely intricate central medallion composed of hundreds of small tools, fan-shaped cornerpieces of similar design, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central medallion and scrolling cornerpieces, pastedowns framed by turquoise morocco with gilt filigree borders, fleuron cornerpieces, and alternating dot and crescent tools along the four sides, ivory silk endleaves, all edges gilt. With title page vignette. Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of Victoria Sackville-West (see below). Spine sunned to a pleasant slightly darker blue-green, joints with just a hint of wear, light offsetting to free endleaves from turn-ins (as usual), isolated corner creases, other trivial imperfections, but a most attractive little book, especially smooth and clean internally, and in a flamboyant binding showing almost no wear. This is a romantic book in terms of its contents, a fine piece of work in terms of its binding, and an intriguing object in terms of its special provenance. The text comprises a collection of 206 love poems ranging from old anonymous ballads to sonnets by the titans of English literature. The editor, poet and literary critic William Watson (1858-1935) has arranged these thematically into "Love's Tragedies," "Romance of Love," "Love's Philosophy," "Love and Nature," "Chivalric Love," "Love's Divine Comedy," "The Wings of Eros," and "Love with Many Lyres." The binding, signed "J. Bumpus, 350 Oxford St.," is typical of the well-executed, quite pleasing, and generally undervalued work produced under the Bumpus name for a substantial period, beginning in the latter part of the 19th century. Packer says that the Bumpus bindings were done at the premises of the bookselling firm of John and Edward Bumpus, which was founded in 1780, and he suggests that the Oxford Street address appearing in our volume was the bindery's long-standing location, encompassing the Victorian period and beyond. The filigree work on the covers is extremely delicate and complex, and no doubt took many hours and great skill to execute. Our former owner, Victoria Sackville-West (1862-1936), best known as the mother of writer Vita Sackville-West, was a fascinating woman in her own right. The illegitimate daughter of diplomat Lionel Sackville Sackville-West, second Baron Sackville, and his long-time mistress, Spanish dancer Josefa de la Oliva, Victoria was born in Paris, travelled widely in Europe, and later accompanied her father to his posting in Washington, D.C. On their return to London, she was accepted by British society and married her first cousin, Lionel Edward Sackville-West, who subsequently inherited her father's title and the family estate of Knole. A cultured and intelligent woman, Victoria was the great friend of Sir John Murry Scott, secretary to Sir Richard Wallace and residual legatee of the famed Wallace art collection. He left most of his estate--more than $6,000,000--to Victoria, a decision the courts upheld over the objections of Scott's family. Someone, probably Victoria herself, has pencilled a cross beside a title in the table of contents, a poem by ancestor Charles Sackville, Earl of Dorset.

        Episoden des Untergangs.

      - Quart. Mit 1 signierten Original-Lithographie als Frontispiz und 27 Illustrationen (davon 1 ganzseitig und eine Initiale) nach Federzeichnungen von Alfred Kubin. 137 S. Originalpergament mit goldgeprägter Deckelillustration des Künstlers (verkleinerte Wiederaufnahme der letzten Textillustration: Nackter Jüngling, vom Speer durchbohrt) und goldgeprägtem Rückentitel. Kongeniale Verbindung der den Untergang der Welt beschreibenden Prosa Schmidts mit den dazu in ihrer Intensität passenden drastischen Illustrationen Kubins, hier in der Vorzugsausgabe mit einer signierten Originallithographie Kubins und einer handschriftlichen Widmung des Verfassers. - Kubin Bücher, Bd.1. - Raabe 302; Horodisch A 51 (Normalausgabe); Marks A 92; siehe Raabe-Expressionismus, 265,5 und Kosch XV, S. 415 (für Schmidt). - Roberto Renato Schmidt (1892 - 1948) begründete den Merlin-Verlag und leitete ihn seit 1925. In einer rauschhaften gesteigerten Schilderung beschreibt der Verfasser einen kurzen Lebensabschnitt eines gewissen Rolfs. Szenen, die sich wie kurze Schlaglichter oder 'Episoden' aneinanderreihen, beschreiben die Welt als Morast, dem niemand entkommt. Es ist die Zeit des ersten Weltkrieges; die Philosophie und Wissenschaft sind hilflos angesichts des Schreckens. Gott wird als ein "Selbst Verlorener, Selbst Verstoßener, Selbst Entfernter" (S. 35) beschrieben. Die Hoffnung - von Rolf - daß "all dies ringsum [ ] vermodern [muß], das Neues entstehen kann" (S. 72) erweißt sich als Trug; aus dem "Untergang" erwächst kein Neuanfang. Wie unausweichlich von Beginn an das endgültige Verderben droht, fängt Kubin - quasi als Rahmen der Geschichte - in seinem Frontispiz und in der Illustration seiner Schlußvignette ein: Der Tod, mit Pfeil und Bogen bereit zum Schuß, tötet den Jüngling, der vom Pfeil durchbohrt, zusammenfällt. - Die Vorzugsausgabe besteht aus 50 nummerierten Exemplaren auf Juball-Bütten mit jeweils signierter Originallithographie. Nr.1 - 20 sind dabei in Ganzleder gebunden, jedem dieser Exemplare ist eine Originalzeichnung Kubins beigefügt. Nr. 21 - 50 sind in Ganzpergament gebunden; vorliegend ist dies die Nr. 41. - Die handschriftliche Widmung des Verfassers lautet: Herr Dr. W. Maag/ gewidmet/ vom Verfasser/ RRSchmidt/ Lugano/ 3.Juli.1937". - Pergamentdeckel leicht aufgebogen. Vereinzelt leicht fleckig. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Indian Fairy Tales

      London: David Nutt,, 1892. Large octavo. Original cream-coloured boards, spine and front cover lettered in gilt, top edge brown, untrimmed. Housed in a custom made marbled paper slipcase. Title page printed in red & black, frontispiece and 7 plates in two states, 36 illustrations in the text, 29 decorated initials, by John D. Batten. Photogravure bookplate on front free endpaper of F. E. Dinshaw (d.1936), one of pre-partition India's most prominent businessmen and lawyers (neat library accession label on front pastedown). Spine lightly toned, some discolouration and a few creases to binding, a few blue marks to tissue guards of frontispieces, one or two marks internally. First and limited edition, one of 160 numbered large paper copies signed by the publisher and printed on Japanese vellum. Joseph Jacobs (1854-1916), historian and folklorist, produced a number of fairy tale books in the 90s, following his marriage and the birth of three children: "perhaps it was the presence of young children that encouraged the scholarly Jacobs to turn his attention to the world of folklore and fairy tales" (ODNB). The illustrations are by John D. Batten (1860-1932), "probably the best of that group of illustrators who took mythology as the keynote for their work" (Simon Houfe, The Dictionary of 19th Century British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists, 1998, p. 56).

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1892. FIRST EDITIONS n. Hardcover. 184 x 127 mm (7 1/4 x 5"). Two separately issued (though obviously companion) volumes. FIRST EDITIONS. VERY PLEASING BLACK MOROCCO, TASTEFULLY GILT, BY C. & C. MCLEISH (stamp-signed on rear turn-ins), covers with gilt rule border and cornerpieces of gilt lilies against a mist of gilt dots, raised bands, each spine compartment with a similar design but featuring three inlaid gray morocco lilies at center and trefoil floral ornaments at compartment extremes, all against a stippled ground, turn-ins with gilt fillets and gilt foliate tools at corners, all edges gilt. With a folding engraved frontispiece to volume I. A Large Paper Copy of each volume. A VIRTUALLY PRISTINE SET, nearly as clean and fresh as the day it left the bindery. This is a highly appealing copy of Dobson's essays, here bound by one of the most respected English binders of his (or anybody else's) time. The 32 essays printed here, all of which had appeared previously in periodical form, deal with Steele, Prior, Fielding, Hanway, Hogarth, Gray, Chesterfield, Walpole, Goldsmith, Cowper, Bewick, Richardson, Smollet, Johnson, and several others. Henry Austin Dobson (1840-1921) was a poet of lighter verse whose extensive knowledge of the 18th century led him to write full-blown biographies of Hogarth, Goldsmith, Fanny Burney, Horace Walpole, Richardson, and Steele. (He also wrote biographies of the Frenchwomen Charlotte Corday, Madame Roland, the Princesse de Lamballe, and Madame de Genlis.) Persons included are not just writers, but others of interest to bibliophiles, such as bookbinder Roger Payne. These "Vignettes" were so popular that a third series was issued in 1896, and all three went through several editions on both sides of the Atlantic. Born in 1859, our binder, Charles McLeish, was apprenticed to Andrew Grieve in Edinburgh, then came to London in 1890 to work for Riviere. When Cobden-Sanderson founded the Doves Bindery in 1893, he hired McLeish as the firm's finisher; McLeish held that estimable position until 1909, when he left to go into partnership with his son, Charles, who had apprenticed under Roger de Coverly. Although the senior McLeish was no longer in the employ of Cobden-Sanderson, all of the bindings that were signed "Doves Bindery" between 1909 and 1921 were actually done in the McLeish workshop. As can be seen here, the work produced by the McLeishes was beautifully designed and highly accomplished.

      Kelmscott Press, London 1892 - This iconic set from the Arts and Crafts era was an early production of the Kelmscott Press under the artistic direction of William Morris. Having recently acquired the Caxton text in a reprinted edition of the 13th century lives of the Saints and Miracles, Morris wanted to proiduce a modern reprint with the knowledge gained from research and using the original printing techniques. 3 Volumes, cloth spine with paper over boards, no dust jackets as released. all three volumes are in Good- condition; The spine labels for two volumes are missing. There is evidence of fluid damage on the spines which may be partially from original binding approach. These book were always intended to be custom bound after publication, the existing bindings were always recognized as temporary. Th interiors are all pristine except for 2 former owner's bookplates on the endpapers. All interior illustrations are present and clean. There are two illustrations/ illuminations by Edward Burne-Jones and the magnificent title pages were the first done by Morris. The Kelmscott Colophon is on the last page of Volume 3, and the printed slip asking any possible re-binders not to trim the pages or put the volumes in a press so as not to destroy what Kelmscott worked so hard to replicate from medieval printing.

        Celtic Fairy Tales

      London: David Nutt,, 1892. Large octavo. Original cream-coloured boards, spine and front cover lettered in brown, top edges gilt, untrimmed. Housed in a custom made marbled paper slipcase. Title page printed in red & black, frontispiece and 7 plates in two states, 38 illustrations in the text, 26 decorated initials, by John D. Batten. Spine lightly toned. An exceptional copy. First and limited edition, one of 125 numbered large paper copies signed by the publisher and printed on Japanese vellum. Joseph Jacobs (1854-1916), historian and folklorist, produced a number of fairy tale books in the 90s, following his marriage and the birth of three children: "perhaps it was the presence of young children that encouraged the scholarly Jacobs to turn his attention to the world of folklore and fairy tales" (ODNB). The illustrations are by John D. Batten (1860-1932), "probably the best of that group of illustrators who took mythology as the keynote for their work" (Simon Houfe, The Dictionary of 19th Century British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists, 1998, p. 56).

        Autograph letter signed in full to arts administrator Richard Sternfeld

      Three pages of a bifolium. 8vo (175 x 110 mm.). Dated Döbling [now part of Vienna], November 4, 1892. In black ink. In German (with translation). Wolf asks Sternfeld (who is not named in the letter but may be identified by circumstantial evidence) about the "popular concerts" series in Berlin, which Sternfeld had suggested as a venue for showcasing Wolf's music. He doubts whether the setting of these concerts was suited to the purpose: "Would you please, most esteemed [Sir], be so kind as to reveal to me the character of the so-called popular concerts in Berlin?... Are your popular concerts such at which [the audience] is eating, drinking, and smoking? Of course such concerts would prohibit the performance of vocal music, and when you proposed a popular concert to me, you intended to perform my instrumental works only. In such a case a popular concert would not serve me well because, as you know, my specialty is vocal music. However, should it be otherwise and should the said concerts also include vocal music then I would of course prefer such a popular concert to one at the Singakademie, if only to save money. It also would appear that these popular concerts are held in the hall of the Philharmonic, which should not be underestimated." Creased at horizontal fold; short split to lower portion of central fold. . "[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 bloodÂ’, 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." Eric Sams and Susan Youens in Grove Music Online. Richard Sternfeld (1858-1924) was a prominent arts administrator in Berlin at the time. A board member of the Wagner-Verein, he organized several performances of Wolf's works. The Berlin concert Wolf was planning at the time finally took place on January 8, 1894—but not as a “popular” concert. Siegfried Ochs, director of the Philharmonischer Chor, conducted some of WolfÂ’s choral-orchestral works.

        Photo Albums of Frederick William Huverstuhl

      Illinois, 1892-1925. Hardcover. Very Good+. Two volumes: (1) Cloth-backed heavy boards (oblong, approx. 13 x 9 inches); with 10 heavy cardstock leaves, with mounted sepia albumen photographs ranging in size from 4-by-6 to 8-by-6 inches. 12 photographs in all, neatly labelled by hand in the margins. With additional photographs laid-in. Binding a bit utilitarian; or, it ain't pretty, but it's sure sturdy. Boards lightly soiled, bumped along the edges. (2) Cloth-backed marbled paper boards (oblong, approx. 11 x 8 inches); 23 grey heavy cardstock leaves, each with b/w and sepia photographs (albumen prints, silver gelatin prints) mounted on the recto. Photographs are in a range of sizes, many accompanied by handwritten labels -- 45 photographs total, and all are in excellent condition. Huverstuhl's signature on front paste-down, dated 1865, Chicago. Boards a little bumped and scuffed. A nice portrait of a family, as well as a portrait of Joliet and Peoria, Illinois. Frederick William Huverstuhl (b. Prussia/Germany 1847 - d. 1928, Joliet, IL) was a marble cutter by trade, and the images presented here as so nicely composed, exposed, and printed, that one wonders if photography was another of his artistic pursuits. These albums offer images of his art work and his family, as well as street scenes and landscapes -- including numerous shots of the 1902 Joliet flood and the Flood Control Channel construction in Lockport, IL -- and images from the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. The construction of the flood control channel was of particular interest to Huverstuhl, who took numerous pictures of the excavation, the work site, and the cranes dominating the landscape.

        The Workingman's Paradise: an Australian Labour Novel. By John Miller.

      - Sydney, printed by Edwards Dunlop for the Worker Board of Trustees 1892. Octavo publisher's red cloth blocked in blind. Title browned by the endpaper as usual; there was no half title or blank between them. A rather good copy. First edition of this influental if fairly impenetrable socialist anarchist novel by the Messiah of the working class. The 1948 edition was on the shelf of every thoughtful Australian in the second half of the 20th century but I've only ever met one person who insisted he read the whole thing. He made many improbable claims. I think an earlier generation were more thorough, copies of this in good shape have always been hard to find. Lane's preface admits that it's a bit of an unresolved mess but those who want a happy end - like his wife - and those who want Nellie dead of a broken heart - like an unnamed friend - will have to wait for the next book. I dozed off so I'm not sure when the action switched from Nellie to Ned alone and don't know where we left her. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
