        A MONOGRAPH OF THE PITTIDAE, OR FAMILY OF ANT- THRUSHES

      London: Taylor ( Francis for Bernard Quaritch Limited, 1893-1895.. Fifty-one fine handcolored lithographic plates after Elliot (12), William Hart (33), J.G. Keulemans (1), P. Oudart (1), and Maupert (1), drawn on stone by C.F. Tholey (17) and W. Hart (34), printed by Bowen & Co. (17) and Mintern Bros. (34); one double-page letterpress table. Folio. Contemporary dark green half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, spine gilt in seven compartments with raised bands, the bands highlighted with gilt fillets, lettered in second and fourth compartments, the others with repeat decoration in gilt made up from a large central flower-spray tool with surrounding small tools and foliate corner- pieces, marbled endpapers, t.e.g. Very good. In a green morocco-backed cloth box. An excellent copy of the revised and expanded second edition of Elliot's monograph on the Ant-Thrushes. Although Eliot had first published a monograph on the Pittidae thirty years earlier, this attractive and rare work is in effect a new work. The original monograph, Elliot's first major work, was published between 1861 and 1863 with plates and descriptions of just thirty-one species. For the present edition Elliot completely rewrote the text and Hart and Keulemans produced thirty-four new drawings (redrawing eight of the original species and producing twenty-six drawings of new species). The geographical range of the Pittidae stretches from the East coast of Africa, to India, Indonesia and Australia in the East, then to China in the north. The family were evidently particular favorites of Elliot: "It is not often that one returns to his first love and finds her, after many years, more beautiful than ever, as has been my experience in the present instance" (Preface, p. iv). AYER/ZIMMER, p.208. FINE BIRD BOOKS (1990), p.74. NISSEN (IVB) 292. WOOD, p.332.

        My Dark Companions and their Strange Stories

      London: Sampson Low, Marston & Company Limited,, 1893. Octavo. Original brown pictorial cloth, title in gilt to the spine and upper board, all edges gilt, black surface-paper endpapers. Frontispiece and 17 full-page illustrations, historiated initials and numerous illustrations to the text. Very slightly rubbed, corners a little bumped, hinges a touch cracked and neatly repaired, but overall a very good copy. First edition of this collection of camp-fire stories, told by "real aborigines of the interior … the choicest and most curious of those that were related to me during seventeen years." This copy with a superb, lengthy presentation inscription to the verso of the frontispiece, "May these legends culled in Darkest Africa be as pleasant to read as they were to hear from the lips of the Companions of my travels. Henry M. Stanley, London, June 1902." This copy with the joint bookplate of Belle and Kermit Roosevelt to the front pastedown. Son of Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, Kermit was born in 1889, and despite being "a quiet, dreamy, rather detached child" (DAB), developed a considerable taste for exploration and adventure. In 1909 "while at Harvard, he accompanied his father on an expedition to East Africa, serving as photographer. As his father noted with delight, 'the rather timid boy of four years ago has turned out a perfectly cool and daring fellow.'" He subsequently joined his father's near-fatal exploration of the River of Doubt in Brazil; accompanied the British forces in Mesopotamia during the First world War, winning the Military Cross; organized scientific expeditions into Turkestan and China for Chicago's Field Museum; and in 1939 became a British citizen in order to join the Army, seeing active service at Narvik in 1940, he died in 1942 by his own hand in Alaska while on intelligence duty with the US Army. He had married Belle Wyatt Willard, the daughter of the US Ambassador to Spain, on his return from the River of Doubt expedition in 1914. An attractive association.

        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. 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 . 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

        [BUFFALO BILL AND THE "FRENCHMAN'S BOTTLE GAG," A COMIC TABLEAU FROM THE WILD WEST SHOW]

      1893.. Oil on canvas, laid down on wood, 22 x 30 inches. Signed and dated lower left: "Alfred Agoust / 1893." Titled: "Buffalo Bill" on Kennedy Gallery labels. Provenance: Kennedy Galleries; Collection of Edward Eberstadt & Sons. Superb displayable condition. Handsomely presented in a period-style gilt American exhibition frame. This entertaining painting depicts a version of the comedy pantomime routine called "The Frenchman's Bottle Gag" performed in England by Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show. The painting shows a bewildered Buffalo Bill ready to come to blows with two Cockney characters stealing drinks from his flask. A prominent historian of performance tells us: "The gag, made famous in Paris by the Scanlon Brothers and their collaborator, the Agoust Family Jugglers, in the long playing three- stage acrobatics, magic, and pantomime spectacular, Le Voyage en Suisse, usually involves two clowns, a ridiculously dressed Frenchman, and his bottle. The clowns steal his bottle and surreptitiously sneak sips back-and-forth, as the bewildered Frenchman desperately attempts to figure out who's got his bottle. This image is of costers or pearlies, East End London cockneys, victimizing the Buffalo Bill character - the old Hanlon & Agoust drinking routine re- costumed for the Wild West show's British audience." Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show made two extensive tours of England and Europe prior to the date of this painting: 1887-88, arriving for Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee; and 1889-93, playing the great theaters and fairgrounds. The 1893 tour was at the height of the show's fame. The 1893 show program states: "Since the visit of Buffalo Bill's Wild West to England and its remarkable engagement in London, at West Brompton, in 1887, a history and tour have been made, such as no organization of its magnitude and requirements ever accomplished." Henri Agoust, the Hanlon's long-time collaborator (the parties later fell out and sued each other in a bitter legal dispute), had a son named Alfred, a member of the Agoust Family Jugglers. According to a census of traveling show people, he would have been in his early twenties in 1893. His biography is otherwise unknown. It seems likely that the juggling Alfred Agoust was also the well-trained, talented artist responsible for this magnificent show business painting, its attention to costume, props, and comic gesture demonstrating the specialized knowledge of the insider. Almost all images of the Wild West Show are found in the great lithographic posters and photographs produced by the William F. Cody publicity machine. Period oil paintings of the Buffalo Bill act are very rare indeed. This wonderful image, showing a comic routine Buffalo Bill evidently adopted from European circus acts, is a unique contribution to the iconography of the Wild West Show. John A. McKinven, THE HANLON BROTHERS. THEIR AMAZING ACROBATICS, PANTOMIMES AND STAGE SPECTACLES (Glenwood, Il.: David Meyer Magic Books, 1998), passim.

        Buffalo Bill [and the "Frenchman's Bottle Gag," a comic tableau from the wild west show]

      1893. Oil on canvas, laid down on wood, 22 x 30 inches. Signed and dated lower left: "Alfred Agoust / 1893," titled: "Buffalo Bill" on Kennedy Gallery labels. Superb condition, period-style gilt American exhibition frame. Provenance: Kennedy Galleries (labels); Collection of Edward Eberstadt & Sons. A very rare contemporary oil painting of an Act in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show: almost all of the images of the Wild West show are found in the great lithographic posters and photographs produced by the William F. Cody publicity machine. Period oil paintings of the Buffalo Bill act are very rare indeed. This wonderful image, showing a comic routine Buffalo Bill evidently adopted from European circus acts, is a unique contribution to the iconography of the Wild West Show. This entertaining painting almost certainly depicts a version of the comedy pantomime routine called "The Frenchman's Bottle Gag" as performed in England by Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show. The painting shows a bewildered Buffalo Bill in the center of the canvas, apparently ready to come to blows with two cockney characters on either side of him, one of whom is swilling a drink from a flask. A prominent historian of performance tells us: "The gag, made famous in Paris by the Hanlon Brothers and their collaborator, the Agoust Family Jugglers, in the long playing three-stage acrobatics, magic, and pantomime spectacular, Le Voyage en Suisse, usually involves two clowns, a ridiculously dressed Frenchman, and his bottle. The clowns steal his bottle and surreptitiously sneak sips back-and-forth, as the bewildered Frenchman desperately attempts to figure out who's got his bottle. This image is of costers or pearlies, East End London cockneys, victimizing the Buffalo Bill character - the old Hanlon & Agoust drinking routine re-costumed for the Wild West show's British audience."

The 1893 tour was at the height of the show's fame. The 1893 show program correctly stated, "Since the visit of Buffalo Bill's Wild West to England and its remarkable engagement in London, at West Brompton, in 1887, a history and tour have been made, such as no organization of its magnitude and requirements ever accomplished." Henri Agoust, the Hanlon's long-time collaborator (the parties later fell out and sued each other in a bitter legal dispute), had a son named Alfred, a member of the Agoust Family Jugglers.

        Pony Race for Polo Ponies

      New York: Henry T. Thomas, 1893. Heliotype. Very good condition apart from some minor soiling in the margins, a few small losses in the top right and left corners, and slight discolouration of the paper due to age. 16 1/8 x 19 5/8 inches. 17 3/8 x 22 1/2 inches. A fine plate depicting the fourth of six races run at the Hempstead Farms on October 19, 1893, from the nineteenth-century publication 'Sporting Incidents'. Introduced to America by the British settlers, horse racing has been a popular spectator sport since the mid-seventeeth century. "Pony-racing, particularly, has taken a firm hold upon the fancy of its followers, and, under the wise and sportsmanlike influence of the American Hunt and Pony Racing Association, the popularity of this form of sport has steadily increased." (Steele) Published during America's Gilded Age, 'Sporting Incidents' is a portfolio of elaborate illustrations depicting equine sporting events and accompanied by H. Milford Steele's eloquent descriptions of the history and status of these activities. It was primarily intended to glorify the increasingly fashionable sports of coaching, hunting, polo and steeple chasing. In its introduction, Colonel William Jay, a founding member of the Coaching Club, extolled the beneficial effect such activities had on the health, behaviour, and moral character of both participants and spectators and explained that the "aim of the artist in this book has been to reproduce such horses and carriages with such details of their equipment as may be useful as hints to those who need them, at the same time furnishing a standard of correctness in such matters."

        THE £1,000,000 BANK-NOTE and Other New Stories

      1893. 2 pp preliminary ads plus 32 pp ads dated Mar 1893. London: Chatto & Windus, 1893. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in black. First English Edition of this collection of nine pieces -- some fiction and some non-fiction. The title tale speculates what would happen if a perfectly honest chap were turned adrift in London with nothing but a one-million-pound bank note issued by the Bank of England. According to the publisher, the London edition was published on 28 April 1893; Johnson says the New York edition was copyrighted and published on 25 February, but Blanck puts its publication date somewhere in late April; precedence is usually given to the U.S. edition, but it is far from certain.~This copy is in the primary (red pictorial) binding and has the earliest (March 1893) ad catalogue; copies were later issued in at least two other bindings, with ads as late as 1906. Near-fine (volume slightly askew, minor sunning of the spine). Blanck 3436 (note); McBride p. 159. Housed in a morocco-backed slipcase.

      London: Chappell, 1893. First Edition. First Edition, fourth issue. Octavo. Sewn wrappers. Two copies, one Very Good and one only Fair. A one-time collaboration between the two British literary giants, a play written when both worked for the London magazine The Idler. Barrie began the work, but fell ill, at which point it was completed by Doyle. The better copy has the publisher's stamp on the front wrapper, perhaps a review copy, with small chips at the extremities of the wrapper. The second copy has a horizontal split to the front wrapper, and the front wrapper is detached and chipped at the edges, rear wrapper missing. Both copies are housed together in a half-leather clamshell box with red leather, raised bands, gilt titles, and marbled paper-covered edges and cloth-covered boards. Owner name in gilt at the bottom of the front board of the box.

        Jane Annie, or The Good Conduct Prize

      London: Chappell & Co, 1893. Paperback. Very Good. Paperback. This is a very scarce item with an interesting history. J.M. Barrie (1860-1937) and Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) met early in their writing careers when they both wrote for the magazine The Idler. They were both Scottish and passionate about cricket, and they became great friends. Their odd collaboration in writing this operetta came about because Barrie had agreed to write the libretto. He became ill, however, perhaps suffering a nervous breakdown, and his friend Doyle came to his rescue by collaborating with him on the work. Despite their efforts, the operetta was a failure, which apparently bothered them very little. In the original printed wrappers. This is very nice copy of this uncommon work, particularly in this condition. This is a variant issue of this unusual collaboration. Housed in slipcase with the bookplates of Lord Ezher and Clark Hunter. LIT/100709.

        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).
