        LIBER SCRIPTORUM. THE FIRST BOOK OF THE AUTHORS CLUB

      The Authors Club, New York 1893 - Thick folio (10" x 13") in publisher's full dark brown morocco leather with ornately blind- and gilt-tooled spines and boards, top edge gilt, uncut. Copy #96 of only 251 copies SIGNED by each of the 109 contributors, all noted American authors of the time, the most prominent being Mark Twain ("The Californian's Tale," the first appearance in print of this story), Theodore Roosevelt ("A Shot at a Bull Elk,"), and Andrew Carnegie ("Genius Illustrated from Burns"). This book was created as a means to raise money for a permanent home for the Author's Club, organized in 1882. Each member contributed an original essay, story, or poem that was intended never to be published elsewhere (Twain's story was included in THE $30,000 BEQUEST in 1906). The book was printed by club member Theodore Low De Vinne on hand-made paper with wood-block engravings and fine typography. It sold for $100, more than $2000 in today's currency. Other contributors include William Dean Howells, Henry Van Dyke, John Hay, Percival Lowell, Charles Warner, F. Hopkinson Smith, Will Carleton, and Frank R. Stockton. BAL 3438. In his bibliography of Mark Twain, Merle Johnson notes that though "there are presumed to be 251 copies of the book; actually, over 30 of these were not bound but were sold as separate articles." Many copies have also been broken up over the years so that the autographs could be sold separately. Most intact copies now reside in institutions. Early bookplate dated 25 April 1894 presenting the book to The Library of the Bar Association of New York by Albert Mathews, Esq. Bar Association Library ink stamp on the title page with an ink number on the copyright page; two other apparently nonrelated small ink stamps on the rear endpaper and pastedown. Rebacked some time ago with nearly all of the original spine laid down and the hinges reinforced with tape. Some rubbing to the binding. Contents clean and in overall Very Good condition [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        El Libro de Cocina

      Mexico: Ed. Rodriguez y Co. / Ed. Dublany Comp, 1893. First Edition. Hardcover (Quarter Leather). Very Good Condition. José Guadalupe Posada. Rebound in modern leather backed cloth, old signature to title, modest browning, dampstaining in the outer margin and text edges for approx. 1/3 of volume one with some degradation to the paper in the margins, not touching the text. The appendix, often lacking, bound separately. The appendix collects Spanish and Mexican recipes. xx, 21-1085, (2), 418, xxii, pp. Two engraved plates, one of a stove, one of a centerpiece; in text illustrations, many of equipment, throughout (at least one, of a rabbit on a spit, by José Guadalupe Posada). Though a student of Careme and one of the chief practitioners of 19th century haute cuisine, Gouffé's Mexican cookbook is exhaustive, presenting an astounding selection of food from the most difficult to prepare to simple, everyday fare - paired with instructions on all facets of household management. The Mexican and Spanish section is more weighted toward the Spanish (there was an 1885 Madrid edition of Gouffé's cookbook) as the target market was clearly upper class Mexican households who identified with Europe at least as much as with Mexico. Still, the guisado and guajolote sections feature many good Mexican recipes and the "Barbacoa mexicano" recipe (lifted from the Diccionario de Cocina) gives good instruction on slow cooking in an earth pit. Size: 4to. 2-volume set (complete). Illustrator: José Guadalupe Posada. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Cooking, Wine & Dining; Inventory No: CAT000356.

        Lady Windemere's Fan. A Play About a Good Woman

      London: Elkin Mathews and John Lane, 1893. First edition. Hardcover. Good. Oscar Wilde's first society comedy, written in 1892 and produced by George Alexander, the manager of St James's Theatre. The play, about a woman "with a past" attempting to reestablish herself in society, was Wilde's first dramatic success, and re-affirmed his place in fashionable circles. This period of acclaim lasted for only 3 years, following which Wilde suffered through his trial for homosexuality and subsequent imprisonment. This volume belonged to Sibyl, Lady Colefax, the well known British society decorator, with her signature at the ffep, 'Sibyl Halsey'. Sibyl, Lady Colefax (1874 - 1950) was born Sibyl Halsey, and was the niece of Walter Bagehot. She settled in Kent, after the 1929 Crash becoming a professional decorator. She bought the decorating division of the antique dealers Stair and Andrew of Bruton Street, Mayfair, and discovered John Fowler when he was running the painted furniture department at Peter Jones. She set up Sibyl Colefax Ltd in partnership with Peggy Ward, the Countess Munster; the firm exists today as Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler. 8vo, 132pp, 14pp of advertisements titled 'List of Books in Belles Lettres'. Mauve cloth, with 3 stylized flame/floral designs at the front and rear boards. Uncut foredge. Boards a bit dusty. Spine has dark marks the length of it and the head is chipped, not affecting the title. OCLC: 3451995.

        Ballads and narrative poems.

      [colophon: Hammersmith: Printed by William Morris at the Kelmscott Press; published by Ellis & Elvey 4to (20.9 cm, 8.5"). [4], 227, [1] pp.. 1893] An early example from William Morris's series of beautiful productions accomplished at his Kelmscott Press — and an outstanding combination of Morris' and Rossetti's Pre-Raphaelite aesthetics. This collection of some of Morris's dear friend Rossetti's most important ballad and narrative verse was printed eleven years after the poet's death using Kelmscott's Golden type in black and a good deal of red; the characteristic woodcut Kelmscott grapevine borders surround both the title-page (printed on the verso of fol. [a]2) and the first page of text opposite, with the rest of the volume offering additional, floriate, woodcut initials designed by Morris.This is one of only 310 copies printed on paper (an additional six were done on vellum). It was to be followed in the next year by a Kelmscott collection of Rossetti's sonnets and lyrical poems. Original cream limp vellum, spine with gilt-stamped author/title; spine very slightly darkened, top rear and bottom front silk ties perished but their partners present. (The ties on Kelmscotts seem to always be a problem.) Housed in a quarter crushed brown morocco solander (i.e., clam shell) case with rust-colored cloth sides and a spine with five raised bands; title in gilt in one compartment, author in gilt in another; remaining compartments with a blind-tooled foliate center device. => A lovely example of an iconic Kelmscott volume, fitly housed.

        Familie der Cacteen.

      Switzerland, unpublished, 1893-1905. Folio. (ca. 38 x 28 cm). 24 pp. of hand-written text, including an "Eintheilung nach Förster", and loose sheets (some on grey paper) with original hand-coloured illustrations of various Cacteae, similar succulents, and a few other plants, many after specimens in the Botanischer Garten Basel. Text in contemporary paper wrappers.= A unique portfolio of original water colour illustrations of, mostly, cacti, including specimens from the Botanical Garden in Basel, mostly dated between 1893-1896, one dated 1898, and one 1905. Thirty-seven leaves in total, some with more than one image. The quality of the paintings and the colouring varies, but the majority is very good to excellent: rich in detail and subtile in colouring and shading. Five plates show other plants (Passiflora, peony, common grape hyacinth, etc.), one is partly in sketch. A few are copied from Curtis' Botanical Magazine. The Förster referred to on the front leaf is C. Förster's "Handbuch der Cacteenkunde in ihrem ganzen Umfange, nach dem gegenwärtigen Stande der Wissenschaft bearbeitet". Front leaf of the portfolio with a few creases, also affecting the opposite text. Some marginal age-toning and slight soiling, otherwise a very good and attractive item.

        The book of common prayer and administration of the sacraments and other rites and ceremonies of the Church according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America together with the psalter or psalms of David.

      New York: Pr. for the committee [by De Vinne Press] Folio (37 cm, 14.63"). [14] ff., 566 pp., [1 (tailpiece and publisher's colophon)] f.. 1893 When the Book of Common Prayer was revised in 1892, a first edition of five impressions (including the "standard edition") was immediately printed by the De Vinne Press. These differed in material and decoration, and this fourth, in folio, on paper, and with Art Nouveau borders designed by Daniel Updike and Bertram Goodhue, was sumptuous. Produced in 525 copies only, for subscribers and for presentation to designated libraries, its glory was exceeded only by that of the one-copy impression done from its same setting but entirely on vellum for the General Convention itself. The floral borders Updike produced for these pages vary with the season, feast, or service of the Church. For example, Ash Wednesday has a border of hyssop and Easter a border of lilies. The borders vary in richness according to the dignity of the feast or service being celebrated, and many of the borders incorporate scrolls inscribed with Latin quotations from Benedicite Omnia Opera Domini Domino, with a few from elsewhere in the the Prayer Book or the Bible. Provenance: There is a gift inscription on the front pastedown: "To the Rev. Hugh G.E. Crosby from the Warwick family with gratitude." Binding: Publisher's vellum over bevelled boards, front cover and spine ornately gilt-stamped and with heavy brass clasps. Gilt-stamped endpapers. The binding and endpapers are in a neo-gothic design by Bertram Goodhue and incorporate the first verse of the Benedicite, as well as employing rose and thistle badges and a rose pattern to denote the English and Scottish origins of the American Episcopal Church. Upper edge gilt, tail and fore-edge deckled. Affixed to one of the rear fly-leaves is: Updike, Daniel Berkeley. On the decorations of the limited edition of the standard prayer book of MDCCCXCII. New York: Pr. at the De Vinne Press, 1893. 4to (25.5 cm, 10"). [2] ff. Bound as above, corners bumped and vellum variably soil-darkened, rear cover with several long scrapes and front one with a few short and unobtrusive ones; front free endpaper chipped and discolored at points where it "took" pressure from the latches. Paper across hinges (inside) cracked, but binding strongly holding; to text, the odd spot of foxing or light soil only. The leaflet by Updike describing his work here is present, "tabbed" in at top left corner, with some discoloration to backing paper. => A very handsome book in a decent, pleasing, "good used" condition that makes it relatively affordable, with the pamphlet on the decorations.
