        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.

"One of the best known fantasies, and the most popular children's book to come out of Italy...

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.

      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.

        The New Englander, New Englander and Yale Review, and the Yale Review, in 131 bound volumes, from 1843 through Summer 1969, missing only one year (1862)

      Maltby, Wiley, Ginn, Yale, et al., New Haven 1892 - Ex-Library set of bound volumes of "The New Englander," which was later called "New Englander and Yale Review," which was later called "The Yale Review," from 1843 - Summer, 1969. The journal, regarded as the oldest literary quarterly in the US, was founded originally in 1819 as The Christian Spectator. In 1843 it changed its name to "The New Englander," and its focus to history and economics. In 1885 it was renamed to "The New Englander and Yale Review." Finally, in 1892, new editor Henry Walcott Farnam changed the name to its current title, "The Yale Review," and decided to focus more on politics and history, and, eventually, literature and poetry. This set contains 131 bound volumes, starting with Volume 1 of "The New Englander" (1843), through Volume 58 of "The Yale Review," (1968- 9). This set lacks only one book, Volume 21 of "The New Englander," (1862), but it does have an additional index to the first 19 volumes of "The Yale Review." Library stickers on spines, bookplates on front pastedowns, and stamping (ink and blindstamps) to prelims and title pages. Contents are readable and unmarked. Many of the early volumes have tissue- covered plates. Some of the earliest volumes are in 1/2 leather bindings, but most of their boards are loose. The later volumes are bound in green and black library buckram. "The New Englander" attracted some well known names, but the modern history of the journal, beginning with its appointment of Wilbur Cross as editor in 1911, featured writers such as Thomas Mann, Henry Adams, Virginia Woolf, George Santayana, Robert Frost, José Ortega y Gasset, Eugene O’Neill, Leon Trotsky, H.G. Wells, Thomas Wolfe, John Maynard Keynes, H.L. Mencken, A.E. Housman, Ford Madox Ford, Wallace Stevens, John Berryman, W. H. Auden and Randall Jarrell. 131 volumes. Will require extra postage.

      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. Cathcart...Ó and signed and dated in full, and inserted in Volume I is an ALS by StoweÕs daughter, Miss H. B. Stowe, 4 pages, 8vo, Hartford, Oct. 17, 1894. Ã’. . .

I have had her attempt two or three times to write for you but without success until to day, when what she has written is quite as good as we can ever expect from her again. . .Ó. Only two copies are recorded at auction with inscriptions by Stowe from the text, neither having two inscriptions.
