Précédée d'une introductrion DEVte FRANCOIS DE SALIGNAC FENELON. / NOTA : Le livre de Job (???? Iyov) est l'un des Livres du Tanakh et de l'Ancien Testament. Poème didactique écrit en prose, on considère généralement qu'il porte sur le problème du Mal.Les nombreuses interprétations du livre sont des tentatives classiques pour réconcilier la coexistence du mal et de Dieu (pour laquelle Leibniz a forgé le terme de théodicée). Mais l'intention originale du Livre de Job apparaît comme assez ambiguë : tantôt invocation à la droiture, tantôt perspective cynique de cette idée ou, selon quelques érudits, satire contre un maintien « puritain » de la religion.

        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.

        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).

        South Australia. Journal of the Elder Exploring Expedition, 1891

      Adelaide: Government Printer, 1893. Folio, 78 pp., with two large folding maps each measuring 720 x 1530 mm., very good in recent black cloth. Enormous geological chart of the central desert. First published report of the Elder Scientific Expedition of 1891, complete with the two magnificent lithographic maps of the central desert on the border of Western and South Australia.The expedition was privately funded by Sir Thomas Elder, who had earlier bankrolled the first great desert journey of Ernest Giles. It was led by surveyor general David Lindsay, a celebrated explorer of the Northern Territory. Lindsay took charge of the Elder Scientific Expedition with the stated intention of exploring the unknown interior of Western Australia between the routes laid out by Forrest in 1874 and Giles in 1875 'for the purpose of completing the exploration of Australia'. The expedition travelled 2,745 miles through unexplored country, mapping 80,000 square miles. Sadly, the men were besieged by internal conflict and all but one member of the scientific team resigned. This marked an abrupt end to Lindsay's career as an explorer.This report, published by order of the South Australian parliament, predates the first public edition printed by C. E. Bristow. The two maps are splendid indeed, both illustrate the same geography however the second map is overlaid with geological types printed in six colours.

        Kings Of Cricket: Reminiscences And Anecdotes With Hints On The Game

      Bolton: Tillotson 1893 - Richard Daft (1835-1900) was among the leading batsmen of his day (1858 to 1891), with his peak being the 1860s and early 1870s, when he was regarded as the best professional batsman in the country. Most of his major cricket was played Notts and the All-England Eleven, whom he captained from 1871 to 1880. In 1879 he led a strong side to North America, which beat a XV of Philadelphia. Here, he holds forth about the players of his time, offering fascinating insights into the life of a pro cricketer during the late 19th century. He is especially strong on his days with the All-England XI. The introduction by Andrew Lang is considered a model of the genre and a classic piece of cricket writing. First Edition. Small 4to. xiv + 274pp + i-viii. Portrait frontispiece, 80 further portrait plates of eminent cricketers of the day. Bound in half black morocco over light brown boards, gilt figure of a cricketer and titles on the front cover, title in gilt on the spine. Top edge gilt. Ex.libris JL Logan, with his bookplate mounted inside front cover. A few light marks to covers, o/w a very good copy.
