Bella edición en papel de hilo conservando sus cubiertas en rústica y sin desbarbar. Papel blanquísimo. Diputación Provincial de León. León, 1892. El libro se conservaba manuscrito desde una fecha no conocida, aunque remota, en el archivo municipal de León, ignorándose cómo tan preciado códice vino a parar al depósito documental de un pueblo con cuya historia no tiene la más mínima relación. El docto D. Pascual de Gayangos fue el primero que fijó en él su escrutadora e inteligente mirada. Este renombrado orientalista, años después, siendo Director general de Instrucción pública, comunicó la noticia del hallazgo al bibliotecario de la provincial legionense, D. Ramón Álvarez de la Braña, quien, sin pérdida de tiempo, se enteró de la existencia del manuscrito y de su argumento, publicando en la Revista de Archivos, Bibliotecas y Museos un articulo en que encarecía su importancia y la necesidad de darle cuanto antes a conocer.

Period decorative embossed cloth covered boards with beveled edges, Top Edge Gilt, deckle edges, decorative endpapers, tissue guarded illstrations. These two volumes should take center stage on any book shelf. They are good examples of late nineteenth century decorative art noveau binding. The white front board has a blue and light green pattern with gilt outline. A variation of this interesting Moorish motif is repeated on the spine. Lovely decorative borders outline the text on each page. Black and white photo illustrations of the Alhambra complete this special publishing effort.

This two volume set celebrates the author's passion for this Moorish landmark and would be a great addition to any private library. There is minor soiling, but the white boards are exceptionally bright! Internally there is some off-setting from the tissue guards, but this is not uncommon. The back boards have some light staining around the edges of the fixed endpapers. Both text and illustrations are very clean. The books are tightly bound and in wonderful condition with just the lightest of wear to the front board of one of the volumes. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

FIRST EDITION IN GERMAN, translated by Freud and one of his earliest contributions to psychiatry. See Garrison-Morton 4999. Bernheim opposed Charcot's view of hypnosis and emphasized the verbal, cultural and emotional in treating hysteria. Freud was very much impressed with him: "I went to Nancy in the summer of 1889 where I spent several weeks. I witnessed the astonishing experiments performed by Bernheim on his hospital patients, and it is there that I experienced the strongest impressions relating to the possible use of powerful psychical processes which remained hidden from human consciousness. I had many interesting discussions with him and I undertook to translate into German his two works on suggestion and its therapeutic effects" (quoted in D.S.B.). Grinstein 316.

        The Story of a Puppet or the Adventures of Pinocchio

Original blue patterned cloth, titles to spine and upper panel in blue, patterned edges and endpapers. Spine faded and rolled, upper hinge cracking. First Edition in English. "One of the best known fantasies, and the most popular children's book to come out of Italy... The story was written for a Rome children's magazine, the Giornale dei bambini, where the first instalment appeared on 7 July 1881. It was published as a book in 1883 under the title Le Avventure di Pinocchio: Storia di un burattino (History of a Puppet), and quickly became a best-seller... Lorenzini's publisher is said to have made a fortune out of it, but Lorenzini himself died too early [in 1890] to witness its international success... Almost nothing else in children's literature equals Pinocchio for wildness of invention" (Carpenter & Prichard, Oxford Companion to Children's Literature).

        THE GERM GROWERS. AN AUSTRALIAN STORY OF ADVENTURE AND MYSTERY. By Robert Easterley and John Wilbraham [pseudonym]

      Melbourne: Melville, Mullen, & Slade. London: Hutchinson & Co.,. 1892. Octavo, pp. [i-v] vi [1] 2-274,. original medium blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in dark blue.. Cloth rubbed at spine ends, corner tips, and along outer joints,. spine panel a bit darkened, some foxing and darkening to endpapers, a. very good copy. Still a nice copy and better than most extant copies.. (#110244). First edition, Australian issue. The Australian issue utilizes the same sheets as the British issue with signature [A] replaced. Among the earliest novels to postulate an invasion of earth by malignant aliens. "The two most imaginative and colorful of the early [Australian] romances were THE LAST LEMURIAN: A WESTRALIAN ROMANCE (1898) by G. Firth Scott and THE GERM GROWERS (1892) by Robert Potter... Potter's THE GERM GROWERS more closely resembles the SF of today. It is probably the world's first story of an alien invasion, produced in Melbourne six years before H. G. Wells's THE WAR OF THE WORLDS. Shape-shifter aliens establish bases in wilderness areas of Earth, including northwest Australia. Unlike the Martians of Wells's book, they do not resort to open warfare with vastly superior technology, but use airships, invisibility, and biological weapons. While exploring the Kimberleys, two English youths stumble upon a plot by the aliens to destroy humanity through the breeding of new forms of plague. At first the conspirators appear merely to be members of some secret society, but it is soon revealed that they are nothing less than devils from outer space (their leader being Signor Niccolo Davelli). The heroes refuse to work for these disease-disseminating devils, and good triumphs over evil when they are rescued by an angel. As in much modern 'aliens among us' SF, the world remains blissfully unaware of the danger by the novel's end because another more benevolent race of aliens steps in to keep the peace." - Blackford, et al., Strange Constellations: A History of Australian Science Fiction, pp. 14-6; 227. "History as an occult battle between two races for humanity." - Suvin, Victorian Science Fiction in the UK, p. 50. "A literate, pre-Wellsian novel with considerable imagination." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1227. Bleiler, Science- Fiction: The Early Years 646.

        Of The Beauty Of Women

      London - James R. Osgood, McIlvaine and Co., 1892 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A dialogue on The Beauty of Women by Italian Poet and litterateur Agnolo Firenzuola (28 September 1493 - c. 1545). First edition. It is asserted by all his biographers that while still a young man he assumed the monastic dress at Vallombrosa, and that he afterwards held successively two abbacies. Girolamo Tiraboschi alone ventures to doubt this account, partly on the ground of Firenzuola's licentiousness, and partly on the ground of absence of evidence; but his arguments are not held to be conclusive. His writings, of which a collected edition was published in 1548, are partly in prose and partly in verse, and belong to the lighter classes of literature. His poems are chiefly satirical and burlesque. All his works are esteemed as models of literary excellence, and are cited as authorities in the vocabulary of the Accademia della Crusca. Clara Bell (1835 - 1927) was an English translator fluent in French, German, Danish, Dutch, Italian, Norwegian, Russian, and Spanish, noted for her translations of works by Balzac, George Ebers, Huysmans, Maupassant, and others. Condition: In a decorative cloth binding. Externally, sound but with slight bumping and wear to extremities. With a marginal stain to front board and the odd mark to boards. With slight splitting to cloth to joints although joints are firm. Front hinge slightly strained. Internally, generally firmly bound although slightly strained in places. Generally bright and clean throughout with only the occasional handling mark. With a small closed tearand slightmarginal tidemarkto front free endpaper. Overall: GOOD.

        The Book of the Rhymers' Club

      London: Elkin Mathews; and Elkin Mathews and John Lane,, 1892 and 1894. [Together with;] The Second Book of the Rhymers' Club. 2 volumes, small octavo (160 × 120 mm). Both in original cloth, the first with paper label to spine, the second with gilt titles to spine. Housed in custom blue quarter morocco slipcase, with chemise, gilt titles and compartments to spine, red morocco onlays. Bookplate of Myra Cohn in both. First book shows light rubbing to spine, browning of endpapers, a very good copy. Second book has slight edge wear, an excellent copy. Case slightly rubbed. First editions. The Rhymers' Club was founded by W. B. Yeats in 1890 as an informal poetry society that met at the Cheshire Cheese in Fleet Street (where Samuel Johnson, in an earlier age, also used to drink). This set includes both volumes published by the group, featuring poetry by Yeats and 12 other contributors: Ernest Dowson, Edwin J. Ellis, G. A. Greene, Arthur Cecil Hillier, Lionel Johnson, Richard le Gallienne, Victor Plarr, Ernest Radford, Ernest Rhys, T. W. Rolleston, Arthur Symons, and John Todhunter. The print run for the first book was 450. 500 British and 100 US copies were produced of the second. Curiously, the custom-made slipcase containing both these volumes bears not the name of W.B. Yeats, but that of Richard le Gallienne.
