WIESER Friedrich von.
1893. First edition in English. 8vo (228 x 150mm). xlv, [1], 243, [1], pp. Original brick red pebble grain cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, boards with triple blind filet borders, black coated endpapers (spine gently rubbed at head and tail, else a very good copy indeed). London, Macmillan and Co. Originally published in 1889, one of Wieser's most important early works, further outlining his theories of marginal utility, alternative cost and imputation as initially expressed in his first book, Über den Ursprung und die Hauptgesetze des wirtschaftlichen Werthes (1884). In Natural Value, Wieser ?employed the expository device of studying value in a centrally directed economy and suggested possible applications of utility theory to public finance. The book gained him almost immediate acclaim, and it was soon translated into English? (Friederich von Hayek in IESS). Provenance: from the library of the Fraser Institute, one of the world's leading public policy think tanks. With the Fraser Institute bookplate to the front pastedown, presented by John Henry Robinson Molson (1826-1897), Canadian entrepreneur and philanthropist. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

From their letters it is clear that she held a special place in his affections and was one of his closest friends and confidantes. (See "Bravest of women, finest of friends": Henry James's Letters to Lucy Clifford, ed. Marysa Demoor and Monty Chisholm, 1999). The essays include pieces on James Russell Lowell, Fanny Kemble, Gustave Flaubert, Henrk Ibsen, and Mrs. Humphrey Ward.

Beardsley, Aubrey
[1893]. An original drawing by Aubrey Beardsley. Beardsley (1872-1898) is the best known illustrator from the British 1890s. He lived a tragically short time, dying of tuberculosis at the age of 25. This lovely major work, the epitome of Beardsley's style of art nouveau, is for the spine of the binding cases of Sir Thomas Malory, Le morte Darthur, published by J. M. Dent, 1893-94, Beardsley's first important commission. The book's title (spelled incorrectly as "La Morte Darthur"), author, publisher, and date are included in the design, which is in fact drawn on four separate pieces of paper that have been adhered together. Malory's Le Morte Darthur, published by Dent has been described as incomparable. The same can be said of Aubrey Beardsley's beautiful and remarkable designs (a term he preferred to "illustrations"). Beardsley was only 20 years old when Dent commissioned him to do all of the designs for this work. It was a leap of faith by Dent in taking a chance on an unproven artist. The illustrations were done during 1892-1894 for the initial issue in parts, beginning in June 1893. The design is done in ink on paper with pencil under-drawing showing the change from the initial position of the leaves, on four separate pieces of paper, the title and top border inset above the ornamental panel ; 27 x 6.7 cm. Framed. In fine condition. Provenance: J. M. Dent. Exhibited: "Burne-Jones, The Pre-Raphaelites, and their Century," Peter Nahum, London, 1989, 165 (listed in catalogue vol.

Haggard, H. Rider; Illustrated by Maurice Greiffenhagen
London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1893. Maurice Greiffenhagen. Hardcover. First Edition of this Aztec romance. Author's Presentation Copy, inscribed "To Andrew from his affec brother H Rider Haggard 1894." Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925) was the author of a number of adventure novels set in exotic locales. His books, including She and King Solomon's Mines, are still popular today. Haggard traveled to Mexico in 1891 to do research for this book and sadly his young son died while he was away. The book describes the first interactions between the Spanish and South American natives, as well as murders, shipwrecks, and slavery. Colonel Andrew Haggard, who had a distinguished military career - he was one of he first British officers to command in the Egyptian army - was also a successful novelist, travel writer and poet. It is known that Andrew helped Rider with the writing of Dawn and he likely played an important role in helping his younger brother with the several bestsellers which revolved around Egypt and mummies. There are 25 black and white illustrations by the British painter and illustrator Maurice Greiffenhagen. He was Haggard's friend, which led him to illustrate several of his adventure books, starting with She in 1889. Bound in the original publisher's blue-green cloth with gilt author and title to front cover and spine. Light bumping, small chip to bottom of faded spine. Hinges a bit tender but text block is tight. Interior pages are clean. Bookplate of collector Mark Samuels Lasner to front pastedown.

TRAVEL JOURNAL: Miss Turner
Original leather bound journal; 9 by 12cm; 92 pages, with 41 watercolour or pen and ink drawings with accompanying manuscript text. The journal describes and illustrates the sea journey from England to China via Gibraltar, Malta, The Suez al, Aden, Ceylon and Penang, reaching Hong Kong on the 19th November 1893. Hong Kong Harbour: "The loveliest spot my eyes ever looked upon... Transparent green waters surrounded by hills rich in yellow, red and brown, with misty purple shadows". Miss Turner then travelled by canal house boat Hongchow, where it would appear she was to take up missionary work. "What a state these poor people must live in! Night after night, you hear guns & crackers being let up at intervals - to frighten away evil spirits! And just now - having sent their 'kitchen-gods' up to heaven for a week - the whole night is hideous with these noises - in self protection I suppose." Very good, all the images are fresh and the hand writing is legible. Spine of the journal defective.

Edwin H. Porter
1893. Condition: Acceptable. Front cover is loose, but not entirely separated from the binding, Pages have tanned, but are clean and intactBorden murders and trial. Published by R. H. Buffinton by Munroe Press, 1893 in a small limited edition of perhaps 500 copies. Many sold by advance subscription. There was never a second printing. Contains illustrations including crime scene photos. Edwin H. Porter was police reporter for the Fall River Globe. At the top of the preface page, there is a stamp: "John T. Swift, Attorney At Law. Mr. Swift has also signed his signature on the flyleaf inside the front cover. John Tuttle Swift lived next door to Maplecroft, Lizzie's residence after her acquittal. He was also involved, as a lawyer, in some real estate transactions between Lizzie and another neighbor. The book is fragile, but it is the real thing - a relic of the Lizzie Borden saga. It was speculated that Lizzie attempted to buy up all copies of the book when it was published in order to destroy them. If true, not many escaped her net. Apparently Lizzie didn't know that a copy of the hated book lived right next door to Maplecroft. As may be seen in the photos, the front cover is loose, but not entirely separated from the binding. This book is not to be confused with the reprint published in 1985 by the King Philip Publishing Co. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
