        Autograph letter signed regarding the Royal Commission on Labour, with another letter by the Duke of Devonshire.

      Oxford and Chatsworth: 1893 - 2 letters. The first, 2 leaves folded twice, double-sided, 5 and a half pp., on Balliol Croft, Madingley Road, Cambridge headed note paper, from Alfred Marshall to Spencer Compton Cavendish, 8th Duke of Devonshire. The second, 3 leaves folded twice, double-sided, 10 and a half pp., on Chatsworth, Chesterfield headed note paper, from the Duke of Devonshire to his secretary Bernard Holland. A few small punctures to upper corner of second letter, in fine condition. Correspondence concerning the drafting of papers relating to the Royal Commission on Labour, which issued its Final Report in 1894 and for which Marshall drafted a memorandum. On 21 November 1893 he wrote to the Duke of Devonshire, "I was conscious when writing my memorandum that I was straying rather far from the evidence, and introducing much speculative matter . As an academic economist, I am more concerned with the influence which the Report will exert on the ultimate trend of thought and action, than with its immediate practical proposals. And perhaps you will pardon my saying that some portions of it seem to me to lend themselves to be used by Socialist writers and speakers in support of conclusions which neither you nor the majority of the Commission would condone. I think scant justice is done to the position of those who believe that the so-called 'Manchester' doctrines, though grievously exaggerated and misapplied, yet contain some kernel of truth". He concludes by mentioning a letter he had recently sent to Geoffrey Drage, the Conservative Party politician who served as secretary to the Royal Commission, 1891-4, in which he provides suggestions on the format of the Report. Earlier in the year, Cavendish (1833-1908), the 8th Duke of Devonshire, had written to his private secretary, Bernard Holland, expressing his displeasure with Drage's summary of the Commission's evidence on mining and quarries. On 15 January 1893 he wrote, "I think it very unsatisfactory in form chiefly because an attempt has been made to follow the arrangement adopted in the Schedules of Questions . which has had so much overlapping, repetition, and confusion . I very much prefer both the form of and the substance of your address on the same subject". Holland published his Life of the Eighth Duke of Devonshire in 1911. "Preparation of the Final Report by the Commission was a collective affair. Recommendations were prepared after the vast amount of evidence the Commission had gathered was reviewed in stages. This involved sub-division of the material into eight topics into which the review part of the Final Report is divided. These were: conditions of labour, associations and organisations of employers and the employed; relations between employers and the employed; concilation and arbitration; limitations of hours of work by legislation; irregularity of employment; a labour department and labour statistics; and the employment of women. Apparently these reviews were initially drafted by Lord Devonshire as Commission Chairman undoubtedly with the assistance of the secretariat and the summaries of the evidence it had already prepared. These drafts were then, from time to time, submitted to the Commission as a whole, discussed and amended by the Commissioners, and then revised 'to make them as far as possible impartial statements of the facts, opinions and arguments with which they were intended to deal' (Final Report, p. 7)" (Groenewegen, p.84). See Peter Groenewegen (ed.), Official Papers of Alfred Marshall: A Supplement (Cambridge University Press, 1996).

        Répétition d'Émilienne d'Alençon aux Folies-Bergère - Le Café Concert

      L'Estampe originale 1893 - - L'Estampe originale, Paris 1893, 31,5x43cm, en feuilles. - Estampe originale d'Henri-Gabriel Ibels, de la série Le Café-Concert éditée par les Publications de l'Estampe Originale. Très rare et belle lithographie faisant partie des 500 épreuves originales tirées sur vélin par l'imprimerie d'Edouard Ancourt. Portrait par Ibels de la célèbre Emilienne d'Alençon durant une répétition aux Folies-Bergère. Danseuse à ses débuts puis devenue demi-mondaine courtisée de toutes parts, Montorgueil lui consacre quelques lignes dans sa préface à cette série de lithographies : « Emilienne d'Alençon - ou plutôt simplement Emilienne, car elle partage [.] l'orgueil d'être populaire rien qu'en prénom. [.] Elle parut dans maintes revues, se reprit au jeux de l'amour et du hasard, pourchassant la veine, flirtant avec la mode ». Véritable ode au café-concert, cette série réalisée par Toulouse-Lautrec et Henri-Gabriel Ibels capture l'essence de la vie parisienne et le dynamisme de ses nuits. Les planches étaient accompagnées d'un pamphlet de l'écrivain Georges Montorgueil chantant les louanges de ces établissements injustement méprisés, qu'il qualifie de « toniques pour la vie moderne ». Bien loin de l'atmosphère empesée des salles de théâtre ou de concert, ces lieux du « sans-gêne » prennent un essor considérable à la Belle Epoque et lancent des artistes d'une remarquable modernité. Les deux peintres dressent ici le portrait des vedettes de cabaret les plus célèbres de l'époque, dans le mouvement de leur « chorégraphie épileptique » ou la grâce de leurs poses. Les grands noms des cafés-concerts, dont Jane Avril, Yvette Guilbert - devenue muse de Toulouse-Lautrec - ou Aristide Bruant apparaissent sous des traits francs et assurés, inspirés des gravures sur bois japonaises. En filigrane, l'influence de l'impressionnisme est également palpable - le style prenant un élan à la fin du siècle. Toulouse-Lautrec figure d'ailleurs régulièrement au salon des Indépendants depuis 1889 et y livre sa vision du Tout-Paris, allant des salons de la haute société aux bordels de la capitale en passant par les cabarets dont le Moulin Rouge, pour qui il réalise une affiche restée célèbre. Autre maître de l'affiche et du dessin, Ibels aura plusieurs collaborations avec les éditions de l'Estampe Originale, dont une série de dessins sur le cirque et réalise en parallèle de nombreuses illustrations pour des journaux populaires, dans un style vigoureux et incisif. Rare estampe en parfait état de conservation, qui renvoie aux fastes du "Paris by night fin de siècle". [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Original print by Henri-Gabriel Ibels, from the series Café-Concert published by the Publications de l'Estamppe Originale. Very rare and beautiful lithography is one of the 500 original proofs drawn on vellum by Edouard Ancourt's printing press. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Works. [Method and Results; Darwiniana; Science and Education; Science and Hebrew Tradition; Science and Christian Tradition; Hume; Man's Place in Nature; Discourses; Evolution and Ethics.]

      New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1893–4 - 9 volumes, octavo (210 x 140 mm). Contemporary blue half morocco, spines lettered and decorated in gilt in compartments, marbled paper sides and endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Minor rubbing to extremities, an excellent set. Title pages printed in orange and black. Frontispieces with captioned tissue-guards. Limited "Author's" edition, number 308 of 1,000 sets of the collected works of the British biologist and science educationalist Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–1895). This copy with an autograph letter from Huxley laid-in, dated 27 September 1869, to William Houghton (1828–1895), author of British Fresh-water Fishes. The note thanks Houghton on behalf of Huxley and his children for the gift of a book, presumably Houghton's Country Walks of a Naturalist with His Children which was released in that year. The letter paper is headed with Huxley's usual blind-stamp of the Geographical Survey of England and Wales. Throughout his life Huxley had published over 400 essays, papers, letters, reviews, and books and from 1893 to 1894 republished his best articles in nine volumes. "For the fast wit, famous irony, suave hectoring, and commonsense cleverness in these essays, Huxley was declared 'perhaps the greatest virtuoso of plain English who has ever lived' (Fawcett, 208). With their reinterpretation of duty, belief, and morality in a secularizing, industrializing culture, they provide a partisan insight into the Victorian move to a naturalistic world-view" (ODNB).

Original full vellum designed by Charles Ricketts, decorated and lettered in gilt; pp. [vii], 302; head of spine with a minor scuffing, gold a little faded from spine, front inner hinge stengthened, a few of the entirely uncut margins a little browned. First edition, one of 50 copies of the large paper copy of this collection of essays, several of which reflect the author's travels in Italy. John Addington Symonds (1840--1893) was a celebrated poet, essayist and thinker. 'His specific contribution to the regeneration of society was as a pioneer in the field of gay rights; he was the first modern historian of (male) homosexuality, and the first advocate of gay liberation in Britain. When he read Plato's Phaedrus and Symposium in 1858, he realized that the ignoble behaviour of his fellow schoolboys at Harrow had an illustrious past, and when he read Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass in 1865 he became convinced that comradeship had the potential for a no less illustrious future' (Victor Norton, The Life and Writings of John Addington Symonds, online). - The trade issue appeared in cloth.

        THE HISTORY OF GODEFREY OF BOLOYNE AND OF THE CONQUEST OF JERUSALEM.

      Hammersmith, Kelmscott Press,1893. This edition of William Caxton's Godeffroy of Boloyne, done after the first edition of 1481, was corrected for the press by H. Halliday Sparling and printed by me, William Morris, at the Kelmscott Press, Upper Mall, Hammersmith, in the County of Middlesex & finished on the 27th day of April, 1893. LIMITED EDITION of 306 copies, 300 printed on paper (6 copies on vellum) and sold by the Kelmscott Press. The limitation is not printed in the book. 4to, approximately 290 x 210 mm, 11½ x 8¼ inches, printed in red and black in Troy and Chaucer Type, pages: xxii, floral decorated title page, 1-450 plus 2 pages, strange words and colophon, bound in publisher's full limp vellum with yapp edges, gilt lettering to spine, printed label at top of first pastedown stating "Given by Mrs Willam Morris in memory of her Husband 1897". Vellum slighty darkened in patches, spine slightly browned and gilt lettering slightly rubbed with slight loss of gilt, silk ties missing, label removed from first free endpaper leaving a pale brown mark and some crinkling, pale numbers on verso half-title, another having been rubbed out has left very slight thinning to paper, small round pale mark at bottom of spine where a label has been removed, 4 pages at the beginning have pale age-browning, looks like a paper fault, 1 small brown spot to fore-edge, otherwise a very good copy. This work is interesting as a record of the Crusades and the formation of the short-lived kingdoms in the East. It shows medieval chivalry as it actually was - not as represented by poets and storytellers. The highly decorative edition features many new ornaments and initials, as well as a new printer's mark designed especially for this book. It was the first book published and sold at Kelmscott Press. This annoyed the noted London bookseller Bernard Quaritch, who felt that in his desire for all of the profits, Morris "will be a loser by it, but... be a nuisance to me on account of the Chaucer" which he was contracted to publish. He was correct; Godefrey did not succeed and Jane Morris eventually donated the remaining copies to public libraries, of which our copy is one. See: William Peterson, A Bibliography of the Kemscott Press, pages 41-44 and 182-183. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

Avelan arrived at the major port of Toulon for its reciprocal visit, which followed the visit of the French military squadron to the Russian base in the Baltic two years earlier. The squadron remained in France until 29 October being treated with celebratory dinners, receptions and gifts in Toulon and Paris. These French and Russian official visits took place in a period when the two countries sought an alliance, which was achieved in the Franco-Russian agreement at the end of 1893.

The highly decorative edition features many new ornaments and initials, as well as a new printers mark designed especially for this book. It was the first book published and sold at Kelmscott Press. This annoyed the noted London bookseller Bernard Quaritch, who felt that in his desire for all of the profits, Morris will be a loser by it, but be a nuisance to me on account of the Chaucer which he was contracted to publish. He was correct; Godefrey did not succeed and Jane Morris eventually donated the remaining copies to public libraries, of which our copy is one.

As his Italian studies progressed, critics rebuked him for unearthing 'scandals' and 'filth'; publication of his discovery in the Buonarroti archives that Michelangelo's poems and letters had been deliberately altered so as to obscure masculine love was deemed mischievous" (ODNB).

        KOHEKI NOKOH ZEN SHO. COMPLETE TREATISE ON AGRICULTURE.

      - Tokyo 1893, Hakubunkan. Blue stitched stiff wrs., 5 vol. set, very good, Japanese text, 15.4 x 23 cm., 37+58+46+56+51 double-folded leaves,19 color, 49 b.w. woodcut illustrations hand-printed on hand-made Washi mulberry paper. R A R E A valuable & secret work, outlining the techniques of how to make some of the most essential products used in Japan [and China]. * Traditionally the art & technique of making such basic products was guarded by the tradesmen. Families carried on the same trade for generations, and strictly passed down these exclusive techniques only to one's heir or disciple. * This work is one of the earliest published and complete "how to" texts to break with that tradition of silence and fully describing these techniques and the associated technology. * A complete discussion, with illustrations of the plants, tools, great presses, and other machinery and technology associated with the production of sugar, Sake [rice wine], oils, lacquer, Tofu, noodles from flower, cotton and hemp. * Not only a technology, but a superb botanical, a "how to grow" also a text on how to identify which parts of plants are used & at what time in their growth cycle. This is also a commercial botanical, for cash crops for would-be growers. * This careful study outlines how to plan, make and use of the plants and moreover how to extract the vital fluids to effect manufacture of the finish product. * By and large Japanese native plants were used, each related plant used is pictured in color, as a mature tree, showing the flower, leaves, fruit and useful parts are clearly identified. *** THE CONTENTS: Volume 1 begins with discussion of the lacquer tree. How to extract the resin, what tools are employed, with pictures of each tool and appliance. It continues with the technique for the extraction of oil [sap] in the form of a large plank is used with successive wedges pounded in to put pressure against the berries, all wedges & tools shown in detail. Other methods include steaming of the berries, or grating against a great grader with steel blade, the result is boiled, then pressed with a great wedge-like beam with wedges hammered in to exert pressure. In one technique, a great water wheel is employed in a series of pestle-like hammers to crush some dried berries, while other rotating boxes are also attached to the same water wheel to sift and dry the grains. This primitive machine was skillfully and completely made from wood. ** Volume 2 continues with the making of sugar from sugar cane. The plant is shown in color as are all plants used, with the associated buckets, presses, dryers, boiling sheds, and two pictures of what looks like a foreign-made boiler or separator with each part is carefully identified & labeled for reproduction by Japanese. The Japanese had almost no steel for machinery at this time but did have a very limited access to copper for such projects, but were still very late in using steel for such machinery or complicated items. Since sugar cane growth was limited to Okinawa and the Southern-most parts of Japan, sugar from this source was limited in supply and distant. A native kind of "sugar beet" was also employed and could be grown in Northern climes. * The work continues in the same vein, illustrating & outlining a host of other valuable & useful plants to make Sake [from fermented rice], Soy sauce and Tofu from soy beans, and of special interest is the making of buck-wheat noodles. The whole process is carefully illustrated ending in the hanging to dry the nearly 2 meter lengths of noodles on the rack, and final packaging. * The next major food was Tofu. The basic technique involved the boiling of the soy beans, to extract the milk. The tools are wooden boxes with holes to allow excess water to flow out through fine silk mesh, after the Nigari a kind of "bitters" or alum like material was added to make the hot milk congeal into solid. The details of the box, its size & location of holes are carefully drawn in instru

        Original design for an 1893 Christmas card

      (Birmingham, England), 1893. Gaskin, Georgie. An original pen-and-ink drawing for a Christmas card designed by Georgie Gaskin for Laurence W. Hodson and his family, together with a printed version of the card. Hodson, an important collector, philanthropist, and patron of the arts, was a good friend of both William Morris and Georgie and Arthur Gaskin. Dated 1893, the card is illustrated with an elaborate acanthus leaf border, reminiscent of the works of the Kelmscott Press, surrounding a scene of two girls standing in front of an apple tree. Banners amidst the branches read, "Mr & Mrs Laurence Hodson, Compton Hall, send greetings for Christmas and the New Year." In the acanthus border, more banners bear the quote, "We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths; in feelings, not in figures on a dial." The card is signed G. C. France: this was Georgie's maiden name, before she married Arthur Gaskin, a teacher and artist who produced woodcuts for the Kelmscott Press. Both Gaskins studied at the Birmingham School of Art, were strong proponents of the Arts & Crafts movement, and embraced the style and ideas of William Morris. Georgie and Arthur Gaskin were also well-known for their elegant handmade jewelry; Georgie designed the jewelry, and her pieces often featured elaborate flowering vines, a characteristic that can readily be seen in the border of this Christmas card design. Gaskin's corrections can be seen, where she reworked the figures and tree, and the back of the card is signed "Christmas Card design, Georgie E. Cave France, Lysley, Birmingham, 6.XII.93." Drawing pasted on thick card, which is roughly trimmed, and the print shows some marginal foxing; otherwise, the drawing and print are in fine condition. (Drawing measures 7 15/16 by 5 3/8 inches; print is on a sheet measuring 9 1/8 by 6 5/8 inches, with a printed area of 7 5/8 by 5 1/8 inches).
