        Butterflies from China, Japan, and Corea.

      London, R.H. Porter, 1892-1894. 3 volumes. 4to (285 x 220mm). pp. lv, (7), 1-298; (2), 297-681; (4), with 48 (43 chromo-) lithographed plates and 1 folded chromolithographed map. Contemporary green half morocco, richly gilt decorated spines with gilt lettering in 6 compartments (skilful repair to some hinges). A beautifully produced work on the butterflies of the Far East. "Great care and planning went into his ambitious scheme to explore Japan, Korea, and the little known parts of the northwestern Himalaya and central and western China. He set up collecting stations and trained local people to collect for him. In addition he employed well-known western collectors, such as Albert Stewart Meek (1871-?), who had done so much successful collecting for Lord Rothschild... He was largely successful and his work still stands out as a standard reference work" (Gilbert, Butterfly collectors and painters p. 106). Leech described many species new to science in the present work. John Henry Leech (1862-1900) was educated at Eton and Trinity Hall, Cambridge and developed an early interest in entomology, in particular, the Coleoptera and Lepidoptera.//Nissen ZBI, 2414.

        The Origin of Metallic Currency and Weight Standards

      Cambridge at the University Press, England, 1892, Hardcover, Book Condition: Reading Copy, First EditionSize: 8vo - over 7?" - 9?" tall, 417 pages. Index. Appendices. Footnotes. List of sixty black and white illustrations. A rare surviving copy of this important reference, made all the more engaging by today's environment of competing fiat currency devaluations. "Hitherto Numismatists when stydying the Origines of Coinage had confined themselves to the materials presented to them in the earliest money of Lydia, Greece and Italy, and on the other hand the Metrologists had almost completely limited their range of observation to the systems of Babylon, Egypt, Greece and Rome. As the Comparative Method has yielded such excellent results in the study of other human institutions, I have endeavoured by its aid to get some new principles which may throw some fresh light on the first beginnings of monetary and weight systems." - from Preface. Attractive gilt decoration upon green front board. Legible gilt lettering upon backstrip. Average external soiling and wear. Several chips from and lengthy openings along backstrip which has become brittle with age. Narrow opening along most of front hinge. Back hinge open. Bookplate inconspicuously removed inside front board. Unmarked. A tender but worthy copy.

        Melmoth the Wanderer

      London: Richard Bentley & Son,, 1892. A New Edition from the Original Text with a Memoir and Bibliography of Maturin&#39;s Works. 3 volumes, octavo. Original dark green cloth, spines lettered in gilt, yellow coated endpapers, fore edges uncut. Portrait frontispiece with tissue guard. Tips bumped, cloth slightly rubbed, mild foxing to the endleaves otherwise internally fine; an excellent set. A very attractive set of this classic Gothic novel about a man who sells his soul to the Devil by the novelist and Protestant clergyman Charles Maturin. Although Maturin&#39;s vocation initially seems somewhat incongruous with the Gothic genre, his novel also offers a social commentary on England in the early 19th century, and a heavy critique of Catholicism. First published in 1820, the alterations of this new edition consist of some minor corrections and the added material - the memoir and bibliography.

"One of the great classic books of golf literature, it includes the first use of photographs to demonstrate the swing. . . . &#39;the most entertaining book ever written about the foibles of the human golfer. . . . indeed, fine golf literature.&#39;" Simpson was the first to advance the idea that golf originated from bored shepherds striking rocks with their crooks, explain how the term &#39;links&#39; was related to sheep herding, and note that the word &#39;putt&#39; came from the idea of putting a ball (or rock) into a hole (or scrape) in the ground.
