        The Story of a Puppet or the Adventures of Pinocchio

      New York, Cassell Publishing Company,, 1892. Translated from the Italian by M. A. Murray. Illustrated by C. Mazzanti. Small octavo, original patterned cloth printed in blue, patterned edges and endpapers, pp. [iv] + 232. Half-title and title printed in red and black, frontispiece and illustrations throughout by C. Mazzanti. Housed in a quarter dark blue morocco solander box. About fine copy. First edition in English, American Issue. "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" (Humphrey Carpenter & Mari Prichard: The Oxford Companion to Children's Literature).

        THE SISTERS

      1892 - [from Swinburne to Meredith] A Tragedy. London: Chatto & Windus, 1892. 1 preliminary page ads plus 32 pp ads dated Oct 1891. Original dark blue-green cloth. First Edition, which consisted of only 1250 copies, of Swinburne's only verse play in contemporary speech.~This copy is inscribed by Swinburne on the half-title, simply "From the author." The book bears the Box Hill bookplate of the famous Victorian author George Meredith. Meredith and Swinburne had been friends for several decades; during the early 1860s Swinburne lived for awhile at the center of Pre-Raphaelitism, the Cheyne Walk abode of Dante Gabriel Rossetti -- where Meredith lived as well. It turned out to be a difficult arrangement.~.Things grew worse. Meredith was revolted by Rossetti's gargantuan breakfasts, bacon surrounded by a circle of eggs. Swinburne knocked [William] Morris into a cupboard and smashed Rossetti's china. With a new acquaintance, Simeon Solomon, he [Swinburne] romped naked about the house, sliding down the banisters and shrilly waking the echoes. Rossetti planned to accommodate his new mistress, Fanny Cornforth, whom Swinburne out of loyalty to Lizzie [Siddal, Rossetti's now-deceased former mistress and wife] always referred to as "The Bitch." Meredith, driven to distraction by the row, swore that "he would certainly have kicked Swinburne downstairs had he not foreseen what a clatter his horrid little bottom would have made as it bounced from step to step." Within a few months, Meredith left. [Thomas]~At about the same time, Swinburne wrote a letter to The Spectator protesting the paper's unkind review of Meredith's MODERN LOVE. Sometime later Swinburne wrote the novella LOVE'S CROSS-CURRENTS, which is regarded as highly influenced by the style of his friend George Meredith. In short, this volume brings together two of the giants of Victorian literature.~The volume, which came from the renowned collection of Halsted Vander Poel, is in near-fine condition.

        AUTOGRAPH WORKING MANUSCRIPT

      1892 - Single leaf, folio (319 × 200 mm), 16 lines written on one side and four on the verso, with some deletions. Browning and a little chipping at edges, still in good condition. A working manuscript, beginning with a dialogue sketch from Catriona, the 1893 sequel to Kidnapped (1886). What follows are about 16 lines of unpublished poetry, in part: "I am come from a land of heath and driving rain / A rusty scornful land, and the folk therein / Brown and sharp in the face; and the wind forever blowing / Ancient stories of red venatius days." The lines bear similarities to Song 43 from Stevenson's posthumously published Songs of Travel. Provenance: Robert Louis Stevenson, auction of his library, Anderson Auction Company, 1914; purchased by Howard Goodhart, collector of incunabula; sent by him to Samuel M. Brickner, author of a poetic eulogy to Stevenson published in the New York Times in 1915. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request.

      Bradbury, Agnew & Co., [and others], London 1892 - 20th-century red half morocco over cloth-covered boards, bound for Henry Sotheran of Sackville Street, London, by Bayntun-Riviere of Bath, spines gilt in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, the first with a fox's mask tool, the third with a whip and horseshoe tool, the fifth with a hound's head, the sixth with a horse's heads bordered in gilt, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt A finely bound set from the pen of the 19th-century's best known sporting author: Thackeray envied him, William Morris considered him a master of life. Surtees' best-selling works are humorous and lively. The author was arguably a match for Dickens in the field of social observation, whilst surpassing him as an observer of the natural world: with warmth and humour Surtees captured an era and a way of life that reached its zenith during Queen Victoria's reign. The Sporting Novels were essential reading in the country houses of Victorian England and deserve a place on the shelves of today's private library. (8 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches). Numerous hand-coloured plates after John Leech, Henry Alken and others, 1 hand-coloured additional title, 6 hand-coloured title vignettes, uncoloured illustrations in Handley Cross. 8 works in eight volumes, octavo [Attributes: Hard Cover]

In His generous patient bosom he bears the anguish of a worldÓ, and in Volume II where she quotes from Uncle TomÕs death scene: Ã’Oh MasÕr George yeÕ are too late. The LordÕs bought me, and is going to take me home and I long to go. Heaven is better than Kintuck...Ó& Both volumes are also inscribed Ã’Written for Mr. W. H.

        Robbery Under Arms . A story of life and adventure in the bush and in the goldfields of Australia

      London: Macmillan, 1892. Small octavo; in very good condition, bound in later half red morocco with marbled boards, spine with raised bands, top of front board partly sunned. Australian bushranging classic. An attractive nineteenth century edition of Boldrewood's most famous work. Thomas Alexander Brown (1826-1915), best known as novelist Rolf Boldrewood, born in London and immigrated with his family to Sydney in 1830. His father served on the East India Company. Before becoming a police magistrate and gold commissioner Brown lived many years as a squatter in Victoria, a life he described later in his books. Boldrewood's stories are generally regarded as the best descriptions of the squatter's life. Robbery Under Arms is set in the bush and the goldfields about a gang of bushrangers led by Captain Starlight. The tale is narrated by a former bushranger awaiting execution for his crimes. The story was rejected originally by two journals and then finally accepted by the Sydney Mail and published between mid 1882 to 1883 in a weekly serial. When finally published in London in 1888, it achieved wide popularity. It is now considered an Australian classic.

        Description of the Star Camera, at the Sydney Observatory

      S.T Leigh & Co., Sydney 1892 - Quarto, with a photograph and seven large lithograph plates; original red cloth, some browning and a few institutional stamps, a good copy recased with new endpapers. An overview of an important piece of astronomical instrumentation. The principal observatories in New South Wales during the nineteenth century were at Sydney and Parramatta, and from the 1890s to the 1930s an astrometric camera was run as a field station by Sydney Observatory at Red Hill, which today is Observatory Park, Pennant Hills. The author of this rare work was the Government Astronomer from 1870, who was responsible for some of the major astronomical programmes undertaken in Australia during the nineteenth century. His book shows details of the camera that was used at Red Hill for photographing the Milky Way and for gaining experience in stellar photography. Russell's work with photography was of great importance: see Holden, Photography in Colonial Australia, pp. 61-3 for further details. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
