        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).

        EIGHTEENTH CENTURY VIGNETTES. [and] EIGHTEENTH CENTURY VIGNETTES, SECOND SERIES

      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.

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.

        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]

With 31 watercolored illustrations or vignettes, usually by the title to the song, but occasionally to the side.

        Uma or The Beach of Falesa [Rare True First American Appearance] [Island Nights' Entertainments]

      New York, 1892. First American edition. A Very Good set of six issues of the Illustrated News of the World containing the complete true first American edition of "Uma or The Beach of Falesa" by Robert Louis Stevenson, one of three tales later published together with The Bottle Imp, and The Isle of Voices in "Island Nights' Entertainments" (1893). "The Beach of Falesa" first appeared in print in six successive weekly issues of The Illustrated London News from July 2 through August 6, 1892 and appeared in these six successive weekly issues of The Illustrated World News, printed from the Original Blocks of the Illustrated London News from July 16 through August 20, 1892. Each issue in this set is in Very Good condition with all but one of the issues retaining its original green overwrap and one of which has come partially loose but which continues to hold and wherein there is a slight mispagination but in which all leaves are present. Notably, when the story was issued in book form the reference to Uma was dropped from the title and the tale was titled merely "The Beach of Falesa". Stevenson wrote the tale, along with others, after he relocated to Samoa for his health. The story is told by John Wiltshire, a British trader who has come to the fictional South Seas Island of Falesá where he is persuaded by a rival trader named Case to marry a local woman, Uma, in a ceremony which the islanders considered binding but which the Europeans did not. Soon after their "marriage", Wiltshire soon discovers that Uma has a taboo upon her and that the natives therefore will not do business with him, but instead trade with Case. An important story, Stevenson saw it as marking his departure from romanticism to realism (a departure criticized by many), writing to his friend Sidney Colvin, the English curator and literary and art critic as follows: "It is the first realistic South Seas story; I mean with real South Sea character and details of life. Everybody else that has tried, that I have seen, got carried away by the romance, and ended in a kind of sugar candy sham epic, and the whole effect was lost - there was not etching, no human grin, consequently no conviction. Now I have got the smell and look of the thing a good deal. You will know more about the South Seas after you have read my little tale than if you had read a library." The tale addressed British Colonialism and in it Stevenson sought to subvert the idea that British Colonialism in the South Seas was only beneficial to the native populations. Due to its candid treatment of the relationship between white traders and the natives, the Publisher bowdlerized the text. Copies of both the London World News and the Illustrated World News are, in our experience, exceedingly scarce and most copies likely were discarded after reading or have been otherwise been lost to time. We doubt that many examples of this true first printing of the tale, whether English or American and whether partial or complete, have survived. A RARE COMPLETE COPY OF THE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION OF THIS NOTABLE ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON TALE.
