      [London: Royal Geographical Society, 1893] - Octavo (240 × 150 mm). Contemporary tan wrappers, typed paper label to upper wrapper.

Freeman (1862–1943) was colonial service surgeon serving in the Gold Coast colony. This pamphlet relates an expedition into west Africa undertaken in 1888, describing the geography, wildlife, vegetation, and local communities. In 1891, after serving in Africa for four years, Freeman contracted black water fever and was invalided home. His persistent ill-health precluded running a medical practice, so he worked as a writer, becoming well-known for his detective novels.

        Two autograph postcards both signed [typically, "A Lopes V"], addressed to António [Vieira] Natividade, Alcobaça, from Casa de S. Pedro, S. Pedro de Moel, undated [Lisbon postmark illegible; Alcobaça postmark dated 22 July 1912] and addressed to Dr. [!?] Joaquim [Vieira] Natividade, from Largo da Rosa, 7, Lisboa, dated 15 December [1912; both Lisbon and Alcobaça postmarks dated 16 December 1912], respectively.

      - Closely written in a legible hand. Both postcards stamped in green in the upper outer corner of the verso with Vieira's typical snail above a banner with his motto "OR:PIANGO:OR:CANTO", and a scallop shell [Vieira] below. 10.5 x 14.9 cm., Fine condition. ---- Both recipients are addressed as "Querido Amigo". The postcard to António Natividade contains 19 lines. Vieira expresses regrets that he was not able to see Natividade's daughters, and insists that these regrets are regrets of friendship and not of protocol. He asks that a message be given to Joaquim [Natividade] about his admiration for an article which had appeared in @Extremadura. A letter apparently sent by Ivo Cruz to António is referred to.The postcard to Joaquim Natividade refers to having read in a newspaper about a conference, mentions "monges agrónimos" and expresses much friendship for the "ilustre tribo Natividade", ending with his hopes that António [Natividade] had [illegible] with Lourenço Almeida.António Vieira Natividade (1893-1946), archeologist and ethnographer, son and collaborator with the illustrious Alcobaça archeologist Manuel Vieira Natividade, took an active part in the restoration of the famous Cistercian Abbey of Alcobaça. His brother, Joaquim Vieira Natividade (1899-1968), agronomist and internationally renowned forestry expert, directed the Departamento de Pomologia da Estação Agronómica Nacional and the Estação de Experimentação Florestal do Sobreiro. Among his numerous publications, mostly of a scientific nature, were @Os monges agrónomos do Mosteiro de Alcobaça, conferências (1943), and @O regionalismo de Afonso Lopes Vieira (1946).Afonso Lopes Vieira (Leiria, 1878-Lisbon, 1946) was Portugal's best traditional poet of the twentieth century. In 1916 he resigned his post as Redactor da Câmara dos Deputados in Lisbon in order to dedicate himself to reading and to poetry. His home, S. Pedro de Moel, became a haven for artists, musicians and writers. He also traveled extensively in Europe and North Africa, and reminiscences of these travels often appear in his works.The author's earliest published works were written as a student at Coimbra, 1897-1900, e.g., @Para quê?, 1897, and @Náufrago, 1898. From this melancholy phase he passed into a nationalistic one, in which he publicized early Portuguese literature, aiming to "reaportuguesar Portugal tornando-o europeau." During this period he helped prepare an edition of Camões (1928) and edited Montemayor's @Diana, the @Amadis, and Rodrigues Lobo. His Portuguese translation of the @Poema do Cid was published in the review @Lusitânia, of which Lopes Vieira served as secretary. He also wrote works for children, e.g, @Animais nossos amigos, 1911, and @Canto infantil, 1912.---- For Afonso Lopes Vieira, see Innocêncio XX, 311; @Exposição bibliográfica de Afonso Lopes Vieira; also @Grande enciclopédia XV, 453-5; Maria Amélia Gomes in Machado, ed., @Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, pp. 501-2; Fernando Guimarães in @Biblos, V, 844-6; @Dicionário cronológico de autores portugueses, III, 214-6; Saraiva & Lopes, @História da literatura portuguesa (17th ed., 2001) p. 961; Bell, @Portuguese Literature p. 337: "There is a certain strength as well as a subtle music about his verse which is of good promise for the future."

        Album de Forain.

      H. Simonis Empis [1893], Paris - Folio (42 cm); [4] leaves and [50] printed plates of Fourain's cartoons. Original hand-tinted wraps bound in. Upper wrap loose. Many plates with English translation of caption supplied in ink (in Hoe's hand?). Pervasive damp stain at juncture of gutter and top edge. Bound in half levant morocco over marbled boards, by David. Bookplate of Robert Hoe, later bookplate (by E.D. French) of Colonel C.L.F. Robinson. Reference: Hoe sale III, 1194 (this copy). The Hoe-Robinson copy of a collection of cartoons that affectionately satirize Parisian sexual-social customs. Forain was a friend and protégé of Degas, and a follower of Daumier. The preface is by the French novelist Alphonse Daudet, who writes, "The whole of Paris is there, modern Paris, from top to bottom, Paris and its terrors, its joys, its vices. explored by two sharp black eyes prying and watching." This copy bears the ownership marks of two notable book collectors. Robert Hoe (1839-1909) was the founding president of the Grolier Club, New York's prestigious society of book collectors. His book collection rivaled that of his contemporary, J. Pierpont Morgan, but unlike Morgan he dispersed his books in a massive auction in 1911, where indeed Morgan acquired many prizes for his own library. C.L. F. Robinson (1874-1916) was the president of Colt Firearms, and a yeoman book collector. His library was sold at Anderson's shortly after his death, the same house that dispersed the Hoe library, for the considerable sum of $45,000. First edition, limited to 75 copies on Chine, this being #14, signed in pencil by the artist. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Landscape Gardening in Japan [together with;] Supplement to Landscape Gardening in Japan

      Tokyo: Kelly and Walsh, Limited,, 1893. 2 volumes, folio. Original green cloth on bevelled boards, titles and pictorial decoration gilt to front board gilt, landscape in blind to rear board, gilt-patterned endpapers. 37 plates and numerous illustrations to the text in volume I, volume II with 40 tissue-guarded collotype plates from photographs. A little rubbed at the extremities, corners bumped, title pages lightly browned, some marginal browning, but overall very good and remains a handsome set. First edition, first impression. In 1876 Conder was contracted to the Japanese Imperial Government as professor of architecture at the Imperial College of Engineering, which "involved him in teaching the first generation of architects in the Western tradition and in acting as architect to the new energetic and innovative Japanese government … [however] Conder arrived in Japan receptive to it and to its culture. He taught his students to admire and be proud of the great Japanese temples and castles" (ODNB). The present work is demonstrative of this reciprocity, being the first study to introduce the Japanese garden aesthetic to Western readers. A handsomely produced work, and an essential addition to any gardening library. The superb collotypes in the supplement were produced by the great Japanese photographic pioneer Ogawa from his own photographs. Neat contemporary book-tickets of Else Lindquist to the front pastedowns.

        The New Laws of the Indies for the Treatment and Preservation of the Indians Promulgated by the Emperor Charles the Fifth 1542-1543. A facsimile reprint of the original Spanish edition together with a literal translation into the English language. To which is prefixed an Historical Introduction by Henry Stevens of Vermont and Fred W. Lucas

      London: Chiswick Press, 1893 - This work consists of two important ordinances issued by the Spanish monarchy on November 20, 1542, and June 4, 1543. Under the active influence of Bartolomeo de las Casas ("friend of the Indians") the new laws had the special design of ensuring better treatment of the Indians, limiting the distribution of their lands, and, above all, protecting them against enslavement by the conquering Spaniards. "Las Leyes Nuevas" are reprinted here in this fine facsimile from the copy on vellum in the British Museum, and are followed by an English translation. Much of the book is taken up by the historical Introduction by Henry Stevens, who denounces the Spanish mistreatment of the Indians. Ironically, the Spanish crown was later forced to rescind the new laws by colonists who were outraged at having to give up their right to a quota of enslaved Indian laborers. A magnificent and impressive production by the Chiswick Press, one of only 13 printed on vellum No. 11 of 13 copies printed on vellum (there were also 88 copies printed on paper). Folio (12-3/4 x 8-7/8 in.; 32.4 x 22.5 cm). Title with vignette, numerous woodcut illustrations, and large initial capitals. Loose, as issued, in publisher's decorated board portfolio with maroon velvet straps, in publisher's maroon morocco-backed clamshell box with printed label on upper cover; box worn, a few rust marks on upper board

In the companion volume, Carroll dates the inscription to Morgan December 27, two days prior to the book's official release, indicating a second presentation copy and a significant association with Morgan. Each volume contains 46 black and white illustrations by Harry Furniss, who in discussing his relationship with Carroll once mused, "I was willful and erratic, bordering on insanity. We therefore got along splendidly." Bound by Riviere and Son in full red morocco, with gilt-rule border to both boards, gilt decorative device at corners of turn-ins, and marbled endpapers. Spine in six compartments, gilt lettered. Original bindings of full red cloth bound in, each cover bearing a small gilt illustration of one of the characters from the book within a circular border. Both volumes very fine. A.e.g. (Williams, Madan & Green 217, 250). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Currier and Ives, New York 1893 - Currier and Ives “Camping in the Woods” New York: 1893 Hand-colored lithograph 35” x 41” framed The publishing firm of Currier & Ives created the most popular and highly regarded lithographs of quintessentially American scenes ever produced. The quality, vast scope and engagingly populist style of their works have made their names synonymous with an idealistic vision of 19th-century American promise and optimism. Nathaniel Currier began his lithographic career as an apprentice in 1828. By the mid-1830’s he had established his own firm on Spruce Street in New York City. In 1857 James Ives became a partner in the flourishing business, which went on to produce over 7,000 lithographs by 1907. Currier & Ives was undoubtedly the most prolific firm of lithographers in America, its output greater than that of all the other firms combined. The remarkable scope of this production was matched by the company’s ability to anticipate popular themes and subject matter. Among their many works are lithographs depicting sporting, railroad and rural scenes, marine, and western views, as well as foreign and domestic city views, historical tableaux, and a wide range of sentimental, morally instructive and advertising images. Currier & Ives’ broad productivity was accompanied by consistently high standards of printing and hand-coloring, and their ability to draw on original works by many of the finest American genre painters of the times, including (among many others) Fanny Palmer, Louis Maurer, Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait, Charles H. Parsons and George Durrie.
