        Stonehenge: Its Probable Origin, Age, and Uses Edited and compiled from the most authentic sources

      Maddington, Wiltshire: William A. Judd, 1893. First edition. Wrappers. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original pale blue printed wrappers, with the front wrapper being decorated and lettered in blue (some modest toning and handling soil to the wrappers, a short split to the upper portion of the wrapper where it joins the spine). In 1870, Geologist William A. Judd established a business taking and selling photographs of Stonehenge from multiple views. Judd became, in effect, Stonehenge's official photographer and custodian and by 1878 Stonehenge had become an national obsession. [The oldest photograph of it known to us having been taken by Prince Albert in 1853.] Judd ultimately was appointed the official custodian by the site's private owners and acted as a guide and photographer at the stones for many years. While Judd both photographed the Site and sought to determine the origin of Stonehenge's stones, part of his job as custodian was to keep visitors from knocking chunks out of the stones and carrying them away as memorabilia, forcing Judd to live out on the plains with the stones themselves. This 1893 booklet is one of the earliest guidebooks to Stonehenge published. [The first guidebook was written in 1823 and Judd's guidebook and photographs without doubt had a strong effect on the growing popularity of the Site.] A Very Good copy of the first Guidebook to Stonehenge, perhaps the best-known prehistoric monument in the world --and forming the core of a World Heritage Site -- produced by William A. Judd, one of the earliest important figures in Stonehenge's modern history and in the popularization of the Site. This little booklet is itself a rare artifact now, and we have not been able to locate any auction records for it. Its age and ephemeral nature have conspired to produced its great scarcity. A Very Good copy of a RARE AND IMPORTANT ITEM IN THE HISTORY OF ONE OF THE EARTH'S GREAT SITES. RARE AND NOTABLE INDEED.

        Travel and Adventure in South-East Africa

      London: Rowland Ward, 1893. First. Hardcover. Fine. 503 pp, ill, folding map. The last 11 years spent by the author on the Zambesi and its tributaries. Selous' longest and best work. Incl. his final hunting years with memories and stories from earlier days. This is the desirable Rowland Ward published edition in original cloth with two gilt lions on cover and gilt native on spine. Near fine - and rare in this condition. A beautiful copy AND: Signed, dated, inscribed on the half title by Selous to his dear friend Col. J.C. Russell. Russell's bookplate on cover. With an entirely handwritten four page letter from Selous, dated 1893, detailing Selous plans to cancel his American trip and sail to Matabeleland because he considered it his "duty to lend a hand to his countrymen in Mashunaland at a time when every rifle may be necessary to save the country from destruction." An amazing letter & association copy. While Sleous was acknowledged as a hunter, he was also a soldier and there is almost no surviving handwritten material regarding his military plans. Selous also writes that he has signed the book in advance of publication and asked Rowland Ward to deliver it as soon as it was available. So this must have been one of the very first copies printed.

        THE ISLE OF FEMININE

      Little Rock, [Arkansas]: Press of Brown Printing Company,. [1893]. original decorated cloth. front cover stamped in gold and blind, spine panel stamped in gold, rear cover stamped in blind.. A tight, bright, nearly fine copy. Rare. This copy is from the Stuart. Teitler collection of lost race fiction. (#151781). First edition. A brief and curious fantasy which weaves together threads from the occult romance or wisdom quest; the shipwreck/desert island/lost race yarn; and the utopian/dystopian dialectic, with a feminist twist. Most critics have misunderstood the tale. A shipwreck victim, Andrew Lowe, is marooned on an unknown island ruled by Diana, an immortal queen with occult powers. (Diana was the Roman counterpart of the virgin Greek goddess, Artemis.) Diana's subjects are descended from an ancient people of unknown origin who were shipwrecked on the island 3,500 years ago. With the help of a sage, Diana has mastered the occult lore contained in a scroll in the possession of her people, including the power of bestowing immortal life or death (she can also revive the dead). The only immortals are the queen and seven princesses. The remainder of her subjects are servants and slaves. Lowe, the only outsider to visit the island during Diana's reign, is well received by the queen, who values his knowledge of the outside world and his teachings about Christianity (some aspects of which are prefigured by the ancient scroll). Diana makes Lowe the first prince of the island kingdom and grants him immortality. Lowe falls in love with Vesta, the youngest princess, who is horrified by his proposal. (The cult of Vesta, Roman goddess of the hearth, was served by the Vestal Virgins.) "[R]ecall those dreadful words. Knowest thou not that the great secret of perpetual life is the total absence of passionate love between the sexes?" Under Diana's reign, the island, has been transformed from a rough wilderness into a "paradise of beauty." Diana is converted to Christianity and decides she would like to be like the son of God and rule her subjects by love. However, she has a vision in which she finds the "tree of life" (which she has been seeking in vain for centuries) and sees Jesus who "shall pluck for me the golden fruit." Diana makes Lowe the king of the island and charges him to rule her people "with justice and mercy." She takes the journey across the dark river to be at His side. Unfortunately, when her power is gone, only Lowe and Vesta, both recently made immortal, survive. The other immortals shrivel and die. The remaining islanders go berserk and Lowe, the "serpent in Eden," and Vesta flee the island in his boat. The island is destroyed when volcanic gases are ignited by a lamp made by Lowe to penetrate the darkness of a deep cavern where the islanders disposed of their dead. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 597. Roemer, The Obsolete Necessity, p. 195. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 99. Teitler 925. Bleiler (1978), p. 148.

        CHRONICLE OF THE CONQUEST OF GRANADA. [and] THE ALHAMBRA

      New York and London: Printed at The Knickerbocker Press for G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1893. n. Hardcover. 229 x 165 mm (9 x 6 1/2"). Four volumes, representing two separately published works, each in two volumes. Publisher's ivory buckram, ornately embellished with a Moorish-inspired design by Alice Cordelia Morse, covers with elaborate decoration in colors and gilt, flat spines with gilt titling and decoration, patterned endpapers, top edges gilt. IN ORIGINAL BLUE CLOTH DUST JACKETS with gilt titling on spine. With 61 photogravures of the Alhambra and Granada, each with lettered tissue guard. Front pastedowns with engraved bookplate of Ella C. Smith ("Alhambra") and of Harold Randolph ("Granada"). "Publishers' Bindings Online, 1815-1930: The Art of the Book," identifier pba02724 (for the binding). Mild browning to leaves opposite illustrations (from acidic tissue guards), otherwise AN EXTRAORDINARILY FINE SET, clean and fresh in very pretty publisher's bindings beautifully protected by their original fine dust jackets. In bindings designed by one of the top book cover artists of the day, these are attractive illustrated editions of two works inspired by Irving's three-year residence in Spain. Although he was born to struggling immigrant parents in New York City, Irving (1783-1859) became a sophisticated citizen of the world, first as a traveller in England, France, and Germany, and later as a political appointee, serving in the American legations in London and Madrid. His writings, accomplished in an amiable and fluent style, earned international recognition; partly because they were often set in foreign locales (as is the case with the present items), they formed one of the first literary bridges established between the Old and New Worlds. "Granada" is one of Irving's earliest works of non-fiction, a highly romanticized retelling the 1492 capture of that Moorish stronghold by the forces of Ferdinand and Isabella. The author reverts to the style of his popular "Geoffrey Crayon" miscellanies for "The Alhambra," a collection of 41 sketches about the famous Moorish palace in Granada. Alice Cordelia Morse (1863-1961) began her career designing stained glass windows in the studio of Louis Comfort Tiffany, before turning to binding design in 1887. According to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's "Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History," Morse enjoyed experimenting with a variety of styles and used "a mixture of Arts and Crafts, Arabic, Moorish, and Persian ornament" when designing the present bindings, in keeping with her practice of "adapting her designs both to complement each book's theme and appeal to the widest audience." Morse was much respected by publishers for her tasteful work, and her bindings for luxury publications appeared in book arts exhibitions at the Grolier Club and elsewhere. Dust jackets from the 1890s are, of course, very uncommon, and especially rare in the fine condition seen here.

        The Life of Cardinal Wolsey

      Hammersmith,: printed by William Morris at the Kelmscott Press., 1893.. One of 250 copies printed on Batchelor handmade paper (6 copies were printed on vellum). 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.

Alice Meynell (1847 - 1922) was a popular English writer, poet, editor, critic, and suffragette. She is best remembered today for her poetry, although she thought her essays were superior. Critics differed, and her poetry was widely praised, often as "exquisite." This book was part of an 1989-90 exhibit at Georgetown University "England in the 1890s: Literary Publishing at the Bodley Head." Bound in the original brown cloth with gilt title and author to spine and front cover. Slightly chipped and worn but still nice. Some browning to page edges and light brown marks to title page and free endpaper. Very good condition. LIT/081315.

        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.

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.
