        The American Woods, exhibited by actual specimens and with copious explanatory text

      Lowville, New York: 1893-1928: published and sections prepared by the author (vols.I-XIII); Romeyn B. Hough Company (vol.XIV), 1893-1900-1894- 1913-1928. 14 volumes, 8vo. (9 x 6 inches). Illustrations. 1047 samples of wood, each wafer-thin transverse, radial or tangential sections illustrating 350 species, window-mounted in 350 card mounts (occasional natural cracking and warping to a few samples). Text in original glazed paper wrappers, samples in card mounts unbound as issued, each text volume and accompanying samples within original green cloth cover in matching original cloth slipcase, with metal catch and bosses to covers (some old dampstaining to slipcases). One of the greatest American works on trees and woods, a labor of love. Complete sets are of the greatest rarity: the present set includes the very rare miscellaneous supplemental part XIV published by Hough's daughter after his death in 1924. This remarkable work was the lifetime achievement of Romeyn B. Hough, who devoted himself to the study of American trees, and who is best known for his Handbook of Trees of the Northern States and Canada, long a standard reference work in American dendrology. In this work, Hough sought to describe the woods found in America, with a detailed description in an accompanying pamphlet, and with thin cross-sections of actual woods mounted and labeled in accompanying stiff cardboard mounts. These provide a unique record of American wood types, arranged geographically. Generally each species is shown with wood cut on traverse section, radial section, and tangential section. The samples are so thin as to be easily translucent. The age of these specimens gives them tremendous importance from an ecological standpoint, as well as their great interest to students of American furniture and woodcrafts. The trees available to Hough at the time make such an endeavor impossible to contemplate today. Parts I-IV cover New York and adjacent states, part V covers Florida, parts VI-X describe the Pacific Slope, parts XI-XII cover the Atlantic states, and part XIII southern Florida. Part XIV contained a continuation of the work on the trees of Florida with text by Marjorie Hough, using specimens and notes prepared by her father before his death in 1924. It is interesting to note that according to the letter included in vol.I of the present set, complete sets were still available at $10.00 per volume in 1938. Hough explained the unique nature of the work thus: it is `illustrated by actual specimens, and being in this way an exhibition of nature itself it possesses a peculiar and great interest never found in a press-printed book. The specimens are....about 2 x 5 in. in size, and sufficiently thin to admit of examination in transmitted light...Looked at in reflected light they appear as in the board or log... These specimens are mounted in durable frame-like Bristol-board pages, with black waterproofed surfaces...and each bears printed in gilt-bronze the technical name of the species and its English, German, French and Spanish names. The pages are separable...and are accompanied with a full text...giving information as to the uses and physical properties of the woods, and distributions, habits of growth, botanical characters, habitats, medicinal properties, etc..., of the trees...The woods used for the specimens are personally collected by the author and are sectioned and prepared by a process of his own device'. Complete sets of this work are very rare. The volumes were originally priced at five dollars each, a high price reflecting the work involved in assembling them. Since subscribers came and went over the 25- year period of publication and many only bought the volume or volumes on the areas that interested them. The rarity of complete sets can be judged from the fact that Stafleu and Cowan record the work as being complete in 6 volumes. Cf. BM (NH) II,p.880 (pts.1-8 only); cf. Stafleu & Cowan II, p.341.

        THE AMERICAN WOODS. EXHIBITED BY ACTUAL SPECIMENS

      Lowville, N.Y. 1893-1904.. Five volumes (of fourteen), each consisting of a cloth portfolio slipcase containing a pamphlet of text and twenty-five to twenty- seven cardboard mounts, each containing three wood samples. Octavo portfolios. Original brown cloth, stamped in blind and gilt. All have black square on spine. In very good condition. In matching clamshell cloth cases, leather labels. This remarkable work was the lifetime achievement of Romeyn B. Hough, who devoted himself to the study of American trees, and who is best known for his HANDBOOK OF TREES OF THE NORTHERN STATES AND CANADA, long a standard reference work in American dendrology. In this much larger work Hough sought to describe the woods found in America, with a detailed description in an accompanying pamphlet, and with thin cross- sections of actual woods mounted and labeled on accompanying stiff cardboard mounts. Seventy-five to eighty of these actual wood samples thus accompany each part, or about four hundred separate samples in the present set of the first five volumes. This mass of samples provides a unique record of American wood types, arranged geographically. Generally each species is shown with wood cut on traverse section, radial section, and tangential section. The samples are so thin as to be easily translucent. The age of these specimens gives them tremendous importance from an ecological standpoint, as well as their great interest to students of American furniture and woodcrafts. The trees available to Hough at the time make such an endeavor impossible to contemplate today. The present set consists of the first five volumes. The first volume is the third edition (1910); the second volume is the second edition (1898); the third volume is the second edition (1900); the fourth volume is the first edition (1894); and the fifth volume is the first edition (1894). Hough issued his first portfolio in 1888 and his thirteenth in 1913. This was evidently all he intended to publish, since he lived for eleven years after the final portfolio appeared. In 1928, Hough's daughter issued a final supplementary volume. All of the portfolios issued by Hough were published by him in his hometown of Lowville, New York. Portfolios cost five dollars a piece, a very high price, reflecting the great difficulty in assembling them. Since subscribers came and went over the quarter century span of publication, and many only purchased the individual portfolios of interest to them, very few complete sets were assembled. It is sufficiently rare that TAXONOMIC LITERATURE only notes six of the parts. Parts I through IV cover New York and adjacent states, and Part V covers Florida. The remaining parts are not present here. Parts VI through X describe the Pacific Slope, Parts XI through XII cover the Atlantic states, and Part XIII covers southern Florida. The final part, XIV, continued with the trees of Florida. One of the greatest American works on trees and woods, a labor of love, here in a set of the first five volumes. TAXONOMIC LITERATURE II:341. BM NATURAL HISTORY II:880 (Parts 1-8 only). SERVIES 9016 (citing all fourteen volumes).

The 351 designs appearing in the edition required eighteen months for Beardsley to complete. If he had never illustrated another book, this edition colud stand as a monument of decorative book illustration.

        Philip And Gerald or Left To Themselves.

      London. Hodder and Stoughton. 1893.. 1st UK edn. Hardback. 323pp + 12pp publisher's list to rear. Decorated cloth boards with black titles on gilt to front and spine. All edges gilt. Tissue-guarded b/w frontispiece + 3 b/w plates by Osman Thomas. Lacks front free endpaper. Minor bumps/rubs to extrems. Otherwise VG, clean, bright and tight. According to James Gifford, Stevenson was the first American gay author and comments that "Stevenson penned two boys' books of note early in his career. White Cockades: An Incident of the 'Forty-Five' (1887) was historical fiction, tracing a youth's infatuation with the young Prince Pretender--a feeling that is reciprocated. Left to Themselves: Being the Ordeal of Philip and Gerald (1891) is the better book and drew more attention. In startlingly frank terms the story traces the growing affection between the eponymous heroes who meet in the opening pages. An older boy's obsession with a beautiful younger lad seemingly abandoned by his family survives the fiction's many improbable adventures, and sees them together happily "throughout their endless lives" by the end". Stevenson also wrote under the names Xavier Mayne, and Edward Irenaeus Prime-Stevenson The Ordeal of Philip and Gerald was first published in New York in 1891. There are no other copies of this book available on the internet at this time.

A solid copy of a scarce title. * First edition. This pioneering commentary on Roman-Dutch law in force in South Africa went through four editions by 1931. "This goodly volume, at once of Theory and of Practice, is... the first attempt on the part of any member of the Legal Profession in South Africa to give an account of the Theory and Practice prevailing in our South African Colonies. (...) Mr. Van Zyl is undoubtedly happy in his choice of a subject, and there can be no doubt of the opportuneness of his work. We are glad to be able to say that we think Mr. Van Zyl is no less happy in his general treatment of his subject than in his conception of the book which it seemed to him was wanted. That his treatise will fill what was clearly a want in Colonial Legal Literature we cannot doubt, nor can we doubt that it will be valuable alike to the Practitioner in Privy Council Appeals, and to the Legal Profession at the Cape.": Law Magazine and Law Review (Fifth Series) 19 (1893-94) 93.

      (FASHION) Image 13 x 9-1/2 inches, matted and framed to 20 x 16 inches overall. Portrait of a woman in profile from behind displaying an embroidered shawl. Excellent condition . Reynaldo Luza (1893-1978), pre-eminent fashion artist, was born in Lima, Peru. He began training as an architect at the University of Louvain, Belgium, but returned to Peru at the outbreak of World War I, where he changed his studies from architecture to art. In 1918 he came to the United States, where he earned his living by contributing drawings to several fashion publications, principally VOGUE, HARPERS BAZAAR, and VANITY FAIR. In 1921 he joined HARPERS BAZAAR as the principal fashion artist, a position he was to hold for 27 years. He divided his time between New York, Paris and London, working closely with all of the leading fashion designers of the times--Poiret, Patou, Lelong, Paquin, Douillet, Doucet, Cheruit, Worth, Drecoll, Callot Soeurs, Redfern, Martial et Amand, Premet, Reboux, Chanel, Vionnet, Molyneaux, Schiaparelli, Hartnell, Steibel, and Balenciaga, among others. In 1940 Luza made New York his principal base, where, over the next few years, he continued his activities at Harpers as well as creating fabric and furniture designs, and the costumes for the movie "The Bridge of San Luis Rey". Among other distinctions, he received several honorary appointments from the government of Peru, including that of Artistic Director of the Paris Exposition of 1938 and the New York World's Fair of 1939-40; he also did the interior design of the new Lima airport. In 1950 Luza returned to Peru, where he began a second career as a portrait painter, exhibiting his work over the next few years in Paris, New York, and Washington, D.C
