Woodcut borders and initials by William Morris. Printed in Golden type. 8vo., original limp vellum with silk ties, spine lettered in gilt. Cavendish was an usher in Wolsey's household between 1526 and 1530 and he wrote this book around 1557. It wasn't printed until a century later but many manuscript copies of it had been handed around so it was well-known. The first printed copy appeared in 1641 taken from one imperfect ms. Morris's aim was to put a more perfect text in print, taken from the author's autograph mansucript in the British Library and edited by F.S. Ellis. It makes fascinating reading with detailed insights into Wolsey's character and lowly beginnings. An extremely good, fresh copy. Booklabel of Clarence B. Hanson, Jr. on the front pastedown.

        The Mummy. Chapters on Egyptian Funereal Archaeology

      Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1893., 1893. Inscribed First Edition. Octavo, pp.xvi, 404. Bound in the publisher's red cloth, with gilt stamp of Mestha (otherwise known as Imseti) to front board, double-ruled blind panneling to boards, gilt titles and publisher's imprint to spine; deckled edges, newspaper insert pasted in to front flyleaf, bookplate to front pastedown. With eighty-eight illustrations, in a variety of styles (including photogravure), several of them fold-out, and a list of heiroglyphics. Binding is rubbed; worn and frayed at spine ends, bumped at corners, sunning to spine, and with tidemark to bottom left sixth of upper board, some small tears to proud deckle edges. Internally clean, with author's ink inscription to "Rev Henry Blunt, from the writer" in 1893 to first blank, tidemark to front lower right hand of front paste down, corresponding to tidemark on upper board, short ink notation to rear pastedown concerning Amen Ra in the same hand that labels and dates the review of The Mummy pasted in to the front fly, from the Pall Mall Gazette. Pictorial bookplate, "From the Middle East and Egyptological Library" of Robert William Morrell, MBE (co-founder of the Thomas Paine Society). Budge was one of the most significant early British Egyptologists, who wrote a number of standard works on the history of Egypt and Assyria at the turn of the twentieth century, though these have since been superseded by the work of modern Egyptologists, whose research with the assistance of modern technologies and with the advent of further discoveries in Egypt, have rendered a number of his conclusions unsupportable. The Mummy is a work of admirable scholarship, synthesising scholarship in German, French, and English, to giver perspective on the religious rites and means of preservation used in the process of mummification. The figure on the front board, Mestha or Imseti, was one of the four sons of Horus, venerated as a funerary god, and who appears as a human head on the lid of the canopic jar used to store the liver.

        French Poets and Novelists

      1893. Signed. JAMES, Henry.French Poets and Novelists.London: Macmillan, 1893.Second English edition, Globe printing, of this early collection of 12 essays on French literature by James, an exceptional copy inscribed by him with phrasing from his Theory of Fiction, ?"For these or those who have been initiated into art by production [flourish] the subject is as much a part of their work as their hunger is a part of their dinner. Henry James [flourish] May 18th, 1904.?"?"Henry James is the most voluminous, and probably the best, American critic of French literature?" (Fay, French Review, 24:4,325). James was only a baby when he ?"made his first contact with France in 1844… He was in Europe again from 1855 to 1858, much of the time in Paris, and again in 1859-60. After a ten-year interval in America,?" James continued, throughout his life, to frequently visit France and especially Paris. ?"The fruit of these visits was a lifelong interest in French literature, an interest which left its mark on his own work.?" This volume?'s 12 essays, which appeared in American periodicals such as The Galaxy and The North American Review from 1873-77, includes those on Baudelaire, Sand, Flaubert, de Musset, two on Balzac, and an essay on French theatre. These were collected and first ?"published in book form in 1878 as French Poets and Novelists?" (Pacey, American Literature 13:3, 240). ?"James possessed a point of view tailor-made for the vocation of literary criticism.?" He once memorably described the critic?'s life as ?"heroic, for it is immensely vicarious. He has to understand for others?" (New York Times).Supino 5.4.0. See Supino 5.1.0; Phillips, 10-11; BAL 10534.Text fresh and clean, faint foxing mainly to endpapers, light edge-wear, faint rubbing to cloth.

        Le Capital. Extraits faits par M. Paul Lafargue

      Paris: Guillaumiin & Cie., , 1893. Small octavo (144 x 90 mm). Original light brown ribbed cloth, spine and front cover lettered in black. Frontispiece portrait of Marx. Lower corner of front cover bumped. Paper stock lightly browned throughout as usual, portrait lightly foxed; a very good copy. First edition of this selection from Marx's Capital, published in the series Petite bibliothèque économique française et étrangère, the product of a surprising collaboration. Lafargue, a founder of the French socialist party and later Marx's son-in-law, of all the French Marxist writers closest to German orthodoxy, made the selection of the extracts. Pareto, whose economic and sociological views by no means coincided with those of Marx, provided the lengthy introduction.

Dans ce recueil, le poète exprime sesrêves de douceur conjugale dans des vers emplies de tendresse d'harmonie et de sérénité (bien loin de la passion tumultueuse avec Eugènie).

        Autograph Letter Signed on a picture post card, unreadable post mark date, showing a photograph of Beacon Island Hotel on Plettenberg Bay, South Africa, ca 1954

      He writes, "I am sorry there is no one to sign this but me. Also hope your loyalty [illegible] to the Conf. Clerk to give Ina Claire a hand. I'm interested to learn what her Paris dresses were like. We're sea bathing but you have to avoid sharks." He signs with initials, "TSE." Ina Claire (1893-1985) was an American actress whose last stage appearance was as Lady Elizabeth Mulhammer in T. S. Eliot's play, "The Confidential Clerk" (1954.). She was known for her comedic performances. According to a story in "Life Magazine," Feb. 1, 1954, Eliot did not attend the opening night of his play because he was vacationing in South Africa as our letter supports.
