        El Libro de Cocina

      Ed. Rodriguez y Co. / Ed. Dublany Comp, Mexico 1893 - Rebound in modern leather backed cloth, old signature to title, modest browning, dampstaining in the outer margin and text edges for approx. 1/3 of volume one with some degradation to the paper in the margins, not touching the text. The appendix, often lacking, bound separately. The appendix collects Spanish and Mexican recipes. xx, 21-1085, (2), 418, xxii, pp. Two engraved plates, one of a stove, one of a centerpiece; in text illustrations, many of equipment, throughout (at least one, of a rabbit on a spit, by José Guadalupe Posada). Though a student of Careme and one of the chief practitioners of 19th century haute cuisine, Gouffé's Mexican cookbook is exhaustive, presenting an astounding selection of food from the most difficult to prepare to simple, everyday fare - paired with instructions on all facets of household management. The Mexican and Spanish section is more weighted toward the Spanish (there was an 1885 Madrid edition of Gouffé's cookbook) as the target market was clearly upper class Mexican households who identified with Europe at least as much as with Mexico. Still, the guisado and guajolote sections feature many good Mexican recipes and the "Barbacoa mexicano" recipe (lifted from the Diccionario de Cocina) gives good instruction on slow cooking in an earth pit. Size: 4to. 2-volume set (complete). Illustrator: José Guadalupe Posada. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Cooking, Wine & Dining; Inventory No: CAT000356. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Lady Windemere's Fan. A Play About a Good Woman

      London: Elkin Mathews and John Lane, 1893. First edition. Hardcover. Good. Oscar Wilde's first society comedy, written in 1892 and produced by George Alexander, the manager of St James's Theatre. The play, about a woman "with a past" attempting to reestablish herself in society, was Wilde's first dramatic success, and re-affirmed his place in fashionable circles. This period of acclaim lasted for only 3 years, following which Wilde suffered through his trial for homosexuality and subsequent imprisonment. This volume belonged to Sibyl, Lady Colefax, the well known British society decorator, with her signature at the ffep, 'Sibyl Halsey'. Sibyl, Lady Colefax (1874 - 1950) was born Sibyl Halsey, and was the niece of Walter Bagehot. She settled in Kent, after the 1929 Crash becoming a professional decorator. She bought the decorating division of the antique dealers Stair and Andrew of Bruton Street, Mayfair, and discovered John Fowler when he was running the painted furniture department at Peter Jones. She set up Sibyl Colefax Ltd in partnership with Peggy Ward, the Countess Munster; the firm exists today as Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler. 8vo, 132pp, 14pp of advertisements titled 'List of Books in Belles Lettres'. Mauve cloth, with 3 stylized flame/floral designs at the front and rear boards. Uncut foredge. Boards a bit dusty.

        Ballads and narrative poems.

      [colophon: Hammersmith: Printed by William Morris at the Kelmscott Press; published by Ellis & Elvey 4to (20.9 cm, 8.5"). [4], 227, [1] pp.. 1893] An early example from William Morris's series of beautiful productions accomplished at his Kelmscott Press — and an outstanding combination of Morris' and Rossetti's Pre-Raphaelite aesthetics. This collection of some of Morris's dear friend Rossetti's most important ballad and narrative verse was printed eleven years after the poet's death using Kelmscott's Golden type in black and a good deal of red; the characteristic woodcut Kelmscott grapevine borders surround both the title-page (printed on the verso of fol. [a]2) and the first page of text opposite, with the rest of the volume offering additional, floriate, woodcut initials designed by Morris.This is one of only 310 copies printed on paper (an additional six were done on vellum). It was to be followed in the next year by a Kelmscott collection of Rossetti's sonnets and lyrical poems. Original cream limp vellum, spine with gilt-stamped author/title; spine very slightly darkened, top rear and bottom front silk ties perished but their partners present. (The ties on Kelmscotts seem to always be a problem.) Housed in a quarter crushed brown morocco solander (i.e., clam shell) case with rust-colored cloth sides and a spine with five raised bands; title in gilt in one compartment, author in gilt in another; remaining compartments with a blind-tooled foliate center device. => A lovely example of an iconic Kelmscott volume, fitly housed.

        The book of common prayer and administration of the sacraments and other rites and ceremonies of the Church according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America together with the psalter or psalms of David.

      New York: Pr. for the committee [by De Vinne Press] Folio (37 cm, 14.63"). [14] ff., 566 pp., [1 (tailpiece and publisher's colophon)] f.. 1893 When the Book of Common Prayer was revised in 1892, a first edition of five impressions (including the "standard edition") was immediately printed by the De Vinne Press. These differed in material and decoration, and this fourth, in folio, on paper, and with Art Nouveau borders designed by Daniel Updike and Bertram Goodhue, was sumptuous. Produced in 525 copies only, for subscribers and for presentation to designated libraries, its glory was exceeded only by that of the one-copy impression done from its same setting but entirely on vellum for the General Convention itself. The floral borders Updike produced for these pages vary with the season, feast, or service of the Church. For example, Ash Wednesday has a border of hyssop and Easter a border of lilies. The borders vary in richness according to the dignity of the feast or service being celebrated, and many of the borders incorporate scrolls inscribed with Latin quotations from Benedicite Omnia Opera Domini Domino, with a few from elsewhere in the the Prayer Book or the Bible. Provenance: There is a gift inscription on the front pastedown: "To the Rev. Hugh G.E. Crosby from the Warwick family with gratitude." Binding: Publisher's vellum over bevelled boards, front cover and spine ornately gilt-stamped and with heavy brass clasps. Gilt-stamped endpapers. The binding and endpapers are in a neo-gothic design by Bertram Goodhue and incorporate the first verse of the Benedicite, as well as employing rose and thistle badges and a rose pattern to denote the English and Scottish origins of the American Episcopal Church. Upper edge gilt, tail and fore-edge deckled. Affixed to one of the rear fly-leaves is: Updike, Daniel Berkeley. On the decorations of the limited edition of the standard prayer book of MDCCCXCII. New York: Pr. at the De Vinne Press, 1893. 4to (25.5 cm, 10"). [2] ff. Bound as above, corners bumped and vellum variably soil-darkened, rear cover with several long scrapes and front one with a few short and unobtrusive ones; front free endpaper chipped and discolored at points where it "took" pressure from the latches. Paper across hinges (inside) cracked, but binding strongly holding; to text, the odd spot of foxing or light soil only. The leaflet by Updike describing his work here is present, "tabbed" in at top left corner, with some discoloration to backing paper. => A very handsome book in a decent, pleasing, "good used" condition that makes it relatively affordable, with the pamphlet on the decorations.

        Changing Pictures: A Book of Transformation Pictures.

      London: E. Nister, [1893] - Quarto. Original red cloth-backed pictorial boards, title to front cover yellow, patterned endpapers. No dust jacket issued. Tips and extremities a little worn, hinges repaired, endpapers partly split at inner margins, some short closed tears to fore-edge of text block. With 6 working chromolothographic push-pull tabs. First edition, the preferred variant with Potter's signature to the cover illustration. This is one of the earliest appearances in print of a book illustration by Beatrix Potter, preceded only by A Happy Pair: she designed one of the three chromolithograph illustrations to the front cover, depicting a rabbit opening the door on a snowy morning to see a gift of a basket full of carrots and other vegetables. At this point Potter was regularly supplying card designs to Hildesheimer & Faulkner (the publishers of A Happy Pair). She had also sold a few of her drawings to Ernest Nister in 1892 and began producing illustrations for annuals and booklets for them. In July 1892, while staying in Scotland, Potter referred to one of these drawings for Nister in her journal: "'I was busy in the morning finishing a drawing of a Jackdaw for Nister & Co. for which, by the way, they have not paid.' The jackdaw in question was carrying a set of long-handled brushes and impersonating a sweep" (Linder, p. 175). Taylor, pp. 17, 57–8; not in Linder or Quinby. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The book of common prayer and administration of the sacraments and other rites and ceremonies of the Church according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America together with the psalter or psalms of David.

      New York: Pr. for the committee [by De Vinne Press] Folio (37 cm, 14.63"). [14] ff., 566 pp., [1 (tailpiece and publisher's colophon)] f.. 1893 When the Book of Common Prayer was revised in 1892, a first edition of five impressions (including the "standard edition") was immediately printed by the De Vinne Press. These differed in material and decoration, and this fourth, in folio, on paper, and with Art Nouveau borders designed by Daniel Updike and Bertram Goodhue, was sumptuous. Produced in 525 copies only, for subscribers and for presentation to designated libraries, its glory was exceeded only by that of the one-copy impression done from its same setting but entirely on vellum for the General Convention itself. The floral borders Updike produced for these pages vary with the season, feast, or service of the Church. For example, Ash Wednesday has a border of hyssop and Easter a border of lilies. The borders vary in richness according to the dignity of the feast or service being celebrated, and many of the borders incorporate scrolls inscribed with Latin quotations from Benedicite Omnia Opera Domini Domino, with a few from elsewhere in the the Prayer Book or the Bible. Provenance: There is a gift inscription on the front pastedown: "To the Rev. Hugh G.E. Crosby from the Warwick family with gratitude." Binding: Publisher's vellum over bevelled boards, front cover and spine ornately gilt-stamped and with heavy brass clasps. Gilt-stamped endpapers. The binding and endpapers are in a neo-gothic design by Bertram Goodhue and incorporate the first verse of the Benedicite, as well as employing rose and thistle badges and a rose pattern to denote the English and Scottish origins of the American Episcopal Church. Upper edge gilt, tail and fore-edge deckled. Affixed to one of the rear fly-leaves is: Updike, Daniel Berkeley. On the decorations of the limited edition of the standard prayer book of MDCCCXCII. New York: Pr. at the De Vinne Press, 1893. 4to (25.5 cm, 10"). [2] ff. Bound as above, corners bumped and vellum variably soil-darkened, rear cover with several long scrapes and front one with a few short and unobtrusive ones; front free endpaper chipped and discolored at points where it "took" pressure from the latches. Paper across hinges (inside) cracked, but binding strongly holding; to text, the odd spot of foxing or light soil only. The leaflet by Updike describing his work here is present, "tabbed" in at top left corner, with some discoloration to backing paper. => A very handsome book in a decent, pleasing, "good used" condition that makes it relatively affordable, with the pamphlet on the decorations.

Adrien Simoneton était un grand décorateur et un grand peintre français. Originaire de la Creuse par ses parents, il est né à Paris le 28 Décembre 1862 et décédé le 19 Août 1949. Ecole Duperré, lycée Maximilien Vox, école nationale supérieure des Arts appliqués et l'école Boulle. Il participa activement à l'exposition universelle de 1900... En tant que décorateur, l'artiste avait une collaboration avec un certain nombre d'artisans agissant en plusieurs corps de métier: Fabrication de textiles ou de tapisseries (dont Mr Simoneton concevait les dessins), meubles, décors de stuc ou plâtre, sculpture ou dorure, peinture de fresques... Le détail de l'ameublement et du décor proposés est remarquable. Les plafonds sont peints, les murs ornés, le décor empli de subtiles précisions: lustres, vases, encadrements de tableaux, sculptures de meubles, riches tentures, plantes d'intérieur... A ce propos, notez que les palmiers présents dans quasi toutes les gravures sont une "marque de fabrique" de Simoneton ! Dans cet ouvrage, chaque gravure propose un décor différent, par exemple pour chambre à coucher, aussi bien que salon, vestibule ou véranda ! Toutes les pièces de la maison sont traitées, en des styles aussi variés qu'originaux ! On voit une ambiance russe, mauresque, de style Louis XVI ou d'inspiration byzantine, de quoi réjouir les amateurs de décoration intérieure raffinée et novatrice pour l'époque, voire parfois baroque ou excentrique ! Les inspirations sont souvent historiques ou exotiques, se référant à des styles connus (Louis XVI, Empire...) ou orientales et coloniales... (Informations issues d'un blog sur l'artiste)

        L'IRRÉSISTIBLE.

      Paris, Calmann Lévy, Ancienne Maison Michel Lévy, 1893 [impr. Chaix, Paris]. 1 volume in-18 (19,5 x 13 cm) de (3)-340 pages. Reliure demi-maroquin marron à larges coins, dos lisse orné, filets dorés, tranche supérieure dorée, non rogné (reliure de l'époque signée CANAPE). Les couvertures imprimées n'ont pas été conservées. Dos légèrement éclairci, à l'état proche du neuf, intérieur immaculé. ÉDITION ORIGINALE. UN DES 10 EXEMPLAIRES DE TÊTE SUR PAPIER IMPÉRIAL DU JAPON. De son nom de jeune fille Henriette-Marie-Adelaïde Biard d'Aunet était née en Suisse en 1848. Elle épousa en premières noces le vicomte Jules de Peyronny (mariage du 1er juillet 1863), puis en secondes noces le Baron Double, et c'est précisément cette union qui nous intéresse ici. Le baron Double, célèbre collectionneur, bibliophile émérite, chasseur de reliures historiques aux armes des plus grands personnages et des rois, avait littéralement craqué pour les beaux yeux de la veuve Peyronny. "Le baron Lucien Double (1848-1895) a été élevé au milieu des livres de la bibliothèque de Louis XIV que son père, Léopold, avait acquise en 1848. Ses deux centres d'intérêt étaient les livres de provenance royale ou princière et les livres d'une haute curiosité bibliographique (incunables, etc.). Sa bibliothèque fut dispersée à Paris en 1897 (Jean-Paul Fontaine). Le baron double souffrait donc pour les yeux de la belle dame Peyronny... et comme l'écrit si bien Jules Clarétie dans La vie à Paris en 1896 : "Le Baron Double, le collectionneur célèbre, l'homme qui, de son salon, avait fait un Louvre, un musée de curiosités uniques, avec tel vase de porcelaine, le fameux vase de Fontenoy, qui valait quatre cent mille francs, le baron, libre de sa destinée et de sa vie, rencontre, un jour, une femme charmante (en général on évite de rencontrer les autres... NDLR...), d'un esprit délicat et supérieur, avec la bonté dans cet esprit, - ce qui est rare ; il s'en éprend, il veut l'épouser, il la supplie de lui donner sa main, et, comme est mariée, séparée, comme il faut du temps pour le divorce, on demande le secours d'une législation étrangère, ... et l'on divorce en Saxe. Le mariage du baron a lieu, le père du baron (Léopold) adore sa belle-fille, les salons de la baronne s'ouvrent à tout ce que Paris compte de notoriétés et même d'illustrations. (...)". Et voilà comment un second mariage, célébré à l'étranger (Londres), en 1885, rend la toute nouvelle baronne Double coupable de Bigamie, son premier mariage n'ayant été annulé qu'en 1887 ! Et tout un imbroglio s'en suit... cette affaire défraiera la chronique mondaine parisienne pendant de nombreuses années. En 1896, la cour d'appel de Paris prononce un arrêt pour l'annulation pure et simple de ce second mariage en raison du caractère frauduleux de sa naturalisation. La Baronne Double ou celle qui se faisait appeler comme cela dans les cercles mondains du tout Paris à la fin des années 1880 n'était pas que cela... elle était femme de plume ! Et elle s'en sortait très honorablement si l'on en croit la presse de l'époque et la critique. Elle écrivait dans les journaux et publiait des livres sous le pseudonyme prédestiné d'Étincelle ! Je vous invite à lire L'histoire de Madame la Baronne Double ICI. BEL EXEMPLAIRE PARFAITEMENT ÉTABLI A L'EPOQUE DE CE ROMAN DE MOEURS BOURGEOIS ET ARISTOCRATIQUES. TRES RARE SUR PAPIER IMPERIAL DU JAPON.

To while away an evening the whole party sat down to a game of verse-making, and "Jabberwocky" was his contribution' (Stuart Dodgson Collingwood, The Life and Letters of Lewis Carroll, p. 143n.) The Preface to Sylvie and Bruno reminds the reader that two chapters reprint 'a little fairy-tale which I wrote in the year 1867, at the request of the late Mrs Gatty, for "Aunt Judy's Magazine" .... It was in 1874, I believe, that the idea first occurred to me of making it the nucleus of a longer story. As the years went on, I jotted down, at odd moments, all sorts of odd ideas, and fragments of dialogue .... I am telling you all this ... because I really believe that some of my readers will be interested in these details of the "genesis" of a book, which looks so simple and straight-forward.' Also in the Preface Carroll praises Furniss for his '(to my mind) wonderful pictures.'
