        Autographed Letter Signed

      Stockholm, 1893. unbound. 1 page, 7 x 4.5 inches, Stockholm, December 23, 1893, to an unknown recipient, but probably his friend Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen, in full: "I thank you heartily for the prospective to your new arctic expedition and send you my best wishes for its success." Excellent condition. Arctic explorer who, in 1868, led an expedition against all odds that reached the highest Northern Latitude (81 42), becoming the first explorer to successfully accomplish the navigation of the North-East Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Note: Between 1893 and 1895, Nansen was the only Explorer who participated in an Arctic exploration. He found the wreckage of the Jeanette expedition from 1882, more than 2,900 miles from where it sank, concluding that there must be an ocean current that moves ice across the Arctic from Siberia. Ironically, on this very voyage, Nansen's ship Fram got stuck in a location called Nordenskjold Archipelago, in a phenomenon called "Dead Water." It was widely reported in the press, and this could possibly account for why Nordenskjold would be sent a prospective of the expedition. Nordenskjold is exceedingly rare and letters mentioning the Arctic are nearly impossible to acquire.

        Johny Martin, Saloon Keeper & "Hoodlum" Owner. Types in Lumber Region, Sketches from Life

      Michigan, 1893. Watercolor drawing on paper. Signed and dated. Sheet measures 9 3/4" x 7 5/8". This original watercolor drawing by Daniel C. Beard includes four drawings from life of people the artist encountered while visiting Michigan in February of 1893. Around this time, Beard worked as an illustrator for books by Mark Twain, Ernest Crosby, and others. The top half of the drawing includes two watercolor drawings, one color and one black-and-white, of "Johny Martin, Saloon Keeper & 'Hoodlum' owner." On the bottom half are two "types" of the Lumber Region of Michigan, where Beard was visiting. Two capped and bearded men with pipes in their mouth face each other, the elaborate patterns on their clothing competing for the viewer's attention. THe skin and hair on the men's faces is simply yet artfully rendered. This original drawing is in very condition with vivid colors. Daniel Carter Beard (1850-1941) was an American illustrator, author, youth leader, and social reformer. In 1905, he founded the Sons of Daniel Boone, a youth organization that taught American frontier traditions and skills to young boys. In 1910, he merged his organization with the Boy Scouts of America and became actively involved in the Scouts and other youth organizations. This drawing evidences Beard's natural skill as an artist.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("C. L. Dodgson"), to the mother of his child-friend, Gladys Baly ("Dear Mrs Baly"), proposing to give her a copy of LITTLE THUMB

      Eastbourne, 7 august, 1893. 12mo. One page, on single folded sheet of blank stationery. Fine. Not in Cohen, THE LETTERS OF LEWIS CARROLL . Dodgson had met Mrs. Bayly and her little daughter Gladys [b. 1884] when they were lodgers in Eastbourne in October, 1891. Gladys had a penchant for drawing - especially horses; Dodgson encouraged her with gift of books with pictures, and wrote her a charming, slightly teasing, two-stanza poem about her equine art. (v. Cohen, pp. 866-67) In this unpublished letter to Gladys&#39;s mother, Dodgson writes: " ... Does Gladys possess &#39;Little Thumb&#39; [by Charles Perrault]? If not, let me give it her. The pictures (of children) are lovely, & would be good for her to copy - they differ from &#39;Fairies&#39; in being all draped [underlined]. So she will have both varieties to draw from. Love to her ... " Years later, Gladys wrote an account of her friendship with Dodgson (see Cohen, pp. 866-67): " ... Happy engrossing hours were those I spent with Mr. Dodgson, when he showed me tricks and puzzles and showed me how to make a paper pistol that would go off with a bang ... I quite clearly recollect him taking Though the Looking-Glass out of a box of new books and giving it to me with his name written inside. He wrote to me many times after I left Eastbourne, although I never saw him again. In return I sent him drawings of ships and horses which, at that time, I was fond of making. ... " Only one letter to Glady herself has survived; this is the only known surviving letter to her mother, and is apparently unpublished

(Payne A7a) Hudson, author and naturalist, whose first two books&mdash;works of fiction published in 1885 and 1887 respectively&mdash;were commercial failures; but a donation of £40 from the Royal Society enabled him to contribute significantly to the two-volume Argentine Ornithology (1888&ndash;9) by Dr P. L. Sclater, secretary of the Zoological Society. In 1892 he achieved his first individual success with a collection of &lsquo;open-air&rsquo; essays, The Naturalist in La Plata. During that year the dismal failure of his novel Fan convinced him that the essay was his most appropriate literary form, a conviction confirmed in 1893 by the success of his Idle Days in Patagonia.

      1893. [inscribed to Mrs. Agassiz] and Other Tales. Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1893. 2 pp undated ads. Original green cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition of this collection of eight tales from the coast of Maine. This is a fine copy, with scarcely any wear or soil. Blanck 10902.~THIS COPY IS INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR, "To Mrs Agassiz with love from Sarah O. Jewett Christmas 1893". Furthermore, this volume bears the bookplate of Louisa Conway Felton.~Elizabeth Cabot Cary (1822-1907) married the Harvard naturalist and educator Louis Agassiz in 1850. He died in 1873, but "Mrs. Agassiz" lived on for 30+ more years, during which time (the year after she received this book as a gift) she became a co-founder and honorary first president of Radcliffe College. In 1905 she wrote to Annie Fields (widow of Boston publisher James T. Fields) regarding a recent trip the two of them had made to Sarah Orne Jewett&#39;s home in South Berwick Maine; this letter also refers to "my niece Lisa Felton." In 1846 Elizabeth&#39;s older sister Mary Louisa Cary had married the Harvard professor in Greek, Cornelius Conway Felton (he would be president of Harvard the last two years of his life, 1860-1862); their daughter Louisa ("Lisa") was born in 1849. Clearly, this volume passed from Sarah Orne Jewett to Elizabeth Agassiz to the latter&#39;s niece Louisa Felton -- and constitutes quite an association of Boston (especially Harvard) literature and education of that era.

Finely bound in scarlet half morocco, spines gilt-tooled in compartments with gilt titles direct, marbled sides with gilt rules, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Bookplate and ownership stamp of Frederick E. Reed to each volume. Very mild cockling to some leaves but still superb set in excellent condition.

Estes and Lauriat also issued an "edition de luxe" of 1,000 sets, though this is the far grander and more limited edition, presented here as a magnificently bound library set. Though the bookplates in this set are numbered, sequentially, vols. 16-63 (presumably because Frederick E. Reed had 15 other volumes, not included here, of Scott's poems and works from different editions bound with these Waverley Novels a single library set), this set nonetheless constitutes Estes & Lauriat's Edition de Grand Luxe of Scott's Waverley Novels, complete as issued.

Hodson of Compton Hall, Wolverhampton (see below). Boards a little splayed, minor soiling to lower cover, just a breath of rubbing to extremities, mild foxing to opening leaves, but still A FINE COPY--internally clean, fresh, and bright, and in an extremely pleasing custom binding with only trivial imperfections. This is an important study in the field of art history, offered here in a rarely encountered and very pleasing binding by one of the most distinctive designers of the period. "The Renaissance" had a major influence on the study of art and on the aesthetic movement: Oscar Wilde called it his "golden book." Pater (1839-94) was a gentle, lifelong bachelor who lived with his two sisters in Oxford, where he tutored pupils, but although he was an unusually shy and retiring academic, he wrote about his ideal of the aesthetic life and his love for beauty in such passionate and polished prose that his writings developed a significant following that included the Pre-Raphaelites. Britannica says that "at the time of his death Pater exercised a remarkable and a growing influence among that necessarily restricted class of persons who have themselves something of his own love for beauty and the beautiful phrase." Our geometrical binding is similar to item #267 in Maggs Catalogue 1212, a binding also designed by Ricketts, executed by Zaehnsdorf, and covering a Vale Press book. As the catalogue indicates, "Ricketts was a remarkable designer in a number of different fields. Although he had no training in bookbinding, . . . He [briefly] advertised his services designing bindings for clients to be executed by Riviere, but for the most part his special bindings are found on copies of his own Vale Press books. It is not clear how many copies of each he had bound, either by Zaehnsdorf or Riviere, but it seems likely that [the] number was very limited and they were probably only done to order for special customers." A review of the main binding reference works uncovers just eight other bindings designed by Ricketts, six in the British Library. There is no binder&#39;s stamp here to indicate who executed the binding to Ricketts&#39; design, but it was obviously a highly skilled craftsman from a top-flight firm. The "special customer" in this case was Laurence W. Hodson, son of a prosperous brewer, noted patron of the arts, and collector of pre-Raphaelite paintings. He commissioned the last wallpaper designed by his acquaintance William Morris, a pattern called "Compton" after Hodson&#39;s family seat.

The Judicial Practice of the Colony of the Cape of Good Hope, And of South Africa Generally, With Suitable and Copious Practical Forms Subjoined to and Illustrating the Practice of the Several Subjects Treated of. Cape Town: J.C. Juta, 1893. xvi, 674 pp. Original cloth, blind frames to boards, gilt title to spine. Moderate rubbing to extremities, corners bumped, chipping to head of spine, hinges cracked but secure, internally clean. Ex-library. Location label to spine, small stamp to title page. 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.

Publisher&#39;s quarter holland over blue-grey boards, in excellent condition with no foxing, text printed in black with red shoulder headings, in Morris&#39;s Golden type. The first Kelmscott Press book to be printed in 16mo. The hand-made pages and illustrations are also in excellent condition. The book appeared in three editions totalling 1500 copies - this copy is from the very first issue of 500, and contains two notable typographical misprints, namely &#39;gilds&#39; for &#39;guilds&#39; in the shoulder heading on page 41 and &#39;Van Eyk&#39; for &#39;Van Eyck&#39; in the text on page 45. Furthermore, this particular copy is unique on account of the inscription on the front endpaper, which reads &#39;For Leslie M. Cockerell from S.C.C, Oct 24th 1893&#39; - this is Sydney Cockerell, later to be knighted, and then aged 26, who acted as private secretary to William Morris, and was at the administrative heart of a great deal of the work of the Kelmscott Press. A very nice example of this rare work, with a splendid Arts & Crafts association.
