        "The Diary of a Sojourn of eight Fields in South Devon. From July 29th, to September 14th 1893 ? (Written at Ringmore, from which this is) Copied verbatim (except spelling), by B.D.F"

      The Lower Farm, Ringmore, near Kingsbrige, South Devon, 1893. A manuscript journal, fair copy. Original watercolor drawing of "Lower Farm" bound in as frontispiece. [i-iv], 1-132 pp. pen and ink. 8vo. Bound to style using contemporary materials, green half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, small lettering-piece to spine (some scuffing and rubbing). The Field Family on Holiday A charming and quite accomplished record of a six-week stay in a farm house in South Devon: the narrative draws on reports of the day from five of the eight Field siblings (all of whom are listed on the title-page). The remaining three Fields were apparently too young (Cyril, "Baby" and "Daisy"). Also included is some quite poignant poetry, and the journal as a whole captures the joy of a carefree holiday in a late Victorian English summer when it never rained (it did) and the blackberries went on forever (they did). The journal was collated, edited and written out by Beatrice as a Christmas present for her two sisters, and recalls the countryside, the house, the people, the walks, lawn tennis games, the church, local towns and villages, "bathing," shrimping, and "messing about."Unusually, the family (who travelled by train from near Reading in Berkshire) does not seem to have been accompanied by either of their parents, although Beatrice who was the eldest did have her 21st birthday during the sojourn. She appears to have been in charge. The majority of the entries are from Beatrice: she has something to report on 37 of the 48 days of the sojourn. Blanche and Margaret left early (on the 28th of August) but they each contributed substantially (with 10 and 9 entries respectively). Durrant provided 3 entries, and Arthur 7. The local vicar, the Rev. Francis Hingeston-Randolph (1833-1910) was a quite distinguished writer and his family provided suitable friends. There are other friends and acquaintances, but the Randolphs figure most prominently, and there is a hint of romance between Beatrice and Charlie, one of Rev. Randolph's sons - the final entry ("Written between Ivybridge & Totnes ? Written on the train") concludes "Charlie & I gazed & waved till the last - Farewell." It is interesting to note that the house, re-named slightly 'Lower Manor Farm,' is still available to rent (over 2000 GBP per week in August!).

        Autograph letter signed.

      Naulakha, Brattleboro, Vermont, 20. XII. 1893. - 8vo. 2 pp. To the American author William H. Rideing (1853-1918): "[.] I am in receipt of yours of the 18th instant suggesting a 2000-2500 w[ord] article for the Companion. Now that I have seen some of the mothers of the youths who read the paper I may perhaps be able to come nearer to its demands. It is very difficult for me to invent notions but I find in my notebooks the story of a young apprentice in the repairing shops of the E.I.R. [East Indian Railways] our Great Indian railroad. We will suppose he is 18 or 19 - sketch the life of the railway community and a railway town in India (Bengal) and make him mend and bring in, on one piston, a broken down loco. in flood time, as he is travelling to a volunteer rifle match. The tale would introduce the country-bred white of the Indian RR's - a parsee engine driver and so on - all the difference that there is between an American + an Indian line. I should prefer 3500 w[ords] to turn in but if you find that does not meet your approval kindly let me know and we will try something else. I used to know something of our Indian railway line. It’s community apart. Very many thanks for Sir E[dwin] Arnolds Jungle Life series. I am doing a set of tales on the same subject more or less for St Nicholas, giving the Jungle people’s views of mankind [.]". - Kipling's works of fiction include "The Jungle Book" (a collection of stories which includes "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi"), the "Just So Stories" (1902), "Kim" (1901), and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). His poems include "Mandalay" (1890), "Gunga Din" (1890), "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" (1919), "The White Man's Burden" (1899), and "If—" (1910). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are enduring classics of children's literature; and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift". Kipling was one of the most popular writers in England, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and its youngest recipient to date.

        Pre-publication specimen leaf for the opening lines of the Canterbury Tales

      Hammersmith: The Kelmscott Press, 1893. Printed on both sides of the leaf, 42 x 29 cms, one or two short marginal nicks and tears, slight offsetting on the verso (probably from the backing of an old frame); ?'specimen?' printed in red in block capitals in the lower margin. One of a small number of proof or specimen leaves of one of the most celebrated examples of typography in English, circulated in advance of publication: ?"A specimen of the first page (differing slightlyfrom the same page as it appears in the book) was shown at the Arts and Crafts Exhibition in October and November, 1893, and was issued to a few leading booksellers…?" (see Morris, ?'The Art and Craft of Printing?', 1902). The only other example which we are aware of was issued as a bifolium (ie the first four pages of text, rather than two) and does not have ?'specimen?' printed in the lower margin, but there may have been some variants. The setting of the text is identical, with seven lines of text under the 19-line initial word ?'Whan?'; Morris evidently considered that there was not enough space between the initial and the printed border and reduced it to six in the published version; our leaf represents the first tantalising glimpse Burne-Jones and Morris would have enjoyed of their last great project together.

      London: [R. Folkard and Son, for] Elkin Mathews and John Lane, 1893. First Edition of Gray's First Book, Number 83 of 250 copies on Van Gelder paper bound in cloth (of an entire edition of 275). 1 vols. Slender 8vo. Publisher's green cloth elaborately gilt, with an all-over pattern in gilt of wavy lines strewn with leaves and interrupted only by a tiny panel in the upper left corner for the title, designed by Charles Ricketts with his monogram "CR" in lower left and Leighton's monogram "HLs" in the lower right. Laid endpapers, top edges trimmed and plain, other edges untrimmed. Wear to spine ends and corners. Bookplate of the Merrymount Press. First Edition of Gray's First Book, Number 83 of 250 copies on Van Gelder paper bound in cloth (of an entire edition of 275). 1 vols. Slender 8vo. Calloway calls this binding "the most inventive of Ricketts' books to date and, in its distinguished effect produced with such economy of means, his most sophisticated. The tall, narrow format was based on the Persian 'saddle-book,' reflecting both the 'exquisite' quality of the poetry and the more practical consideration that a favourite book of poems should be easy to carry in the pocket. The text was set throughout in italic type with simple initials for which, in Ricketts' words, 'the model . . . was one of those rare Aldus italic volumes with its margins uncut.' The total effect is one of elegant proportion and lightness, perfectly recalling the Venetian original.".

      Stuttgart, 21. VIII. 1893. - 1½ SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 8vo. Auf Briefpapier der "Redaktion der Neuen Musik-Zeitung". "Sehr geehrter Herr! Es war eigentlich indiscret von mir dass ich Ihnen den Brief Heubergers schickte, allein ich wollte Sie mit Eifer erfüllen zum Verfassen einer in 3-4 Fortsetzungen zu haltenden Abhandlung über den Charakter Schuberts u. über dessen Beziehungen zu bedeutenden Zeitgenossen, darunter Grillparzer. Nebenher streifen Sie das von H. Beanstandete; namentlich erweisen Sie durch Hinblicke auf Briefe, dass Schubert als Componist selbständig bleiben wollte. Sie können sich ausführlich gehen lassen, Anekdoten u. Aussprüche Schs. einstreuen, kurz beweisen, dass Sie mehr von der Sache verstehen als H. Diesem schrieb ich scharf, da er inseinem Übermute auch mich treffen wollte. Ihr Aufsatz über die Gothaer Aufführungen war mit eleganter Knappheit geschrieben [.]". - Der aus Prag gebürtige Svoboda, ausgebildeter Historiker und ehemaliger Geschichtslehrer, führte ab 1862 die Grazer "Tagespost" zu herausragender Stellung, bevor er über München nach Stuttgart zog und dort ab 1889 die "Neue Musik-Zeitung" leitete. Der Liberale und Freidenker gilt als Entdecker Peter Roseggers, den er früh förderte, woraus sich eine tiefe Freundschaft und ein reger Briefwechsel ergaben (vgl. ÖBL XIV, 72f.).

        Scrambles Amongst the Alps in the Years 1860-1869

      Albemarle Street, London: John Murray, 1893. 4th Edition Printing Unknown. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. Ex Libris with an attractive bookplate, on the front paste-down, of Robert Ellis Cunliffe. This is the 4th edition bound by Zaehnsdorf in the distinctive snowflake pattern boards. The book is inscribed: "With kind regards from the Author, Feb 1911". I have no provenance regarding the authenticity of the inscription. The volume has been in my possession for many years and was purchased by me from the shop of a professional dealer. I have had correspondence with someone who owned examples of Whymper's handwriting and he was of the opinion that the words"... with kind regards from..." are not in Whymper's hand, nor that of his wife's, but that the words "... the Author, Feb 1911" are most likely Whymper's. I have checked other examples found on the web and tend to agree with this conclusion. The book is tightly bound and clean throughout except for the end papers which are a little browned. All maps are present and are clean and bright and untorn apart from one which has a four inch tear along a crease (see image). The boards are a little grubby but with only superficial marks. The spine is faded with wear along the bottom edge. The leather label is marked and chipped and lifting along the edge but is still clearly legible (see image).
