         Aristophanes at Oxford. O.W. by Y.T.O.

      Oxford: J. Vincent; Simpkin, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent & Co., London, [1894] - Octavo. Original skiver-covered wrappers, titles to front wrapper in green. Housed in navy morocco backed bookform slipcase and chemise. Front joint just starting and spine just beginning to separate at head, otherwise only light rubbing to extremities and some mild dust soiling, internally sound and fresh, very good overall. First edition, sole printing, one of 750 copies printed, of this Oxford play satirising Oscar Wilde. "The motive of this production. is an honest dislike for 'Dorian Gray,' 'Salome,' the 'Yellow Book,' and the whole of the erotic, lack-a-daisical, opium-cigarette literature of the day", the student-authors write in their preface, though they confess "We have never met the philosopher in question personally, or seen anything more of him than a distant back-view, and even that obscured by a throng of admiring Adonises." The play is considered a significant analogue for Wildean studies, and as such is represented strongly in institutions: four copies in are recorded in UK institutions, thirty-five in the United States, and one in Dublin. However, no doubt because many of the surviving copies of this relatively ephemeral production have been assumed into special collections, it is rare in the trade: the last copy to appear at auction was in 1982.

         The Jungle Book; [together with:] The Second Jungle Book.

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1894 & 1895. With illustrations by J. L. Kipling, W. H. Drake, and P. Frenzeny; with illustrations by J. Lockwood Kipling. 2 works, octavo. Original blue cloth, titles and pictorial designs gilt to spines and front covers, green endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a custom blue slipcase. Illustrations in the text throughout. Contemporary ownership inscription to title page of Jungle Book and gift inscription to front endpaper of Second Jungle Book. Lightly rolled, spines slightly faded and bumped at ends, covers lightly marked and a little cockled, tips rubbed, occasional very light foxing to contents, hinges of Second Jungle Book cracked. A very good set. First editions. The set comes from the library of the novelist Richard Adams (1920–2016), with his bookplate in both volumes. Adams's 1972 novel Watership Down was one of the most successful, and remains one of the most beloved, children's novels of the 20th century. Adams described Kipling as an enormous influence on his work, stating of him: "Kipling unimitated, inimitable Kipling, how shall I describe thee? Beyond argument, no one has ever written books more full of enjoyment for children", and that "Kipling has his finger firmly in the 'Watership Down' pie, and without him those lines would never have been written" (in Blishen, pp. 171-72). The two Jungle Books were collections of stories which had previously appeared in periodicals; originally published in book form in a print run of 7,000 and 10,000 respectively, they went through numerous reprints and have remained two of Kipling's best known works.

         Recollections of a Virginian (Owned and Signed by Union Civil War General, Rush Hawkins)

      London: Sampson, Low, Marston & Company, 1894. First UK Edition. Hardcover. Good. 5 3/4 X 8 1/4 Inches. 279 PP. First British edition of this autobiography of Confederate General Dabney Herndon Maury (Brig. General, CSA). Signed and previously owned by Union General Rush Hawkins (9th NY Infantry). A very important copy. Signed by noted book collector and General Rush Hawkins on the half title-page. He has added the date of July 20, 1914 to this signature. Additionally signed with lengthy commentary on Maury on the following page (dated August 27, 1914). One would assume that this was the time at which he read the book and formed the sentiments behind his annotation. Signed, "A very charming personal account by a southern Gentleman of the "old school". I knew many like him sixty years ago. But alas now I might search our whole country over, in vain, for another like him. We have become a nation of hustling and the real gentlemen don't count. Aug. 27, 1914 - RCH" This copy, the scarce British first edition, looks to have been donated by Hawkins to the James M. Clift Masonic Library. Library blindstamp on the title-page. Evidence of removal of two bookplates to inside front pastedown. Scuffing and wear to original covers and edges. Toning and foxing throughout. Hinges a bit weak. Overall, a solid copy of a very rare book in which A UNION GENERAL IN THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR SHARES HIS TRUE ADMIRATION FOR A CONFEDERATE GENERAL.

         The Sphinx, with decorations by Charles Ricketts.

      Small 4to. London: Elkin Matthews and John Lane, 1894. Small 4to, [22] ff., unpaginated, illustrated throughout by Ricketts. Original full vellum gilt-designed by Ricketts, printed on Arnold unbleached hand-made paper, all edges untrimmed. An impossibly fine copy, with the gilt on the covers still in bright state, the original prospectus loosely inserted, and in the original slipcase and then housed in another slipcase. Blue quarter morocco slipcase. First edition, one of 200 copies on small paper. One of the very few indisputably great illustrated books of the 1890s. "In 1894 Ricketts produced a masterpiece for Matthews and Lane with The Sphinx. Ricketts was evidently given a free hand not merely to illustrate the book but to design it from cover to cover. The book is brilliantly successful. The use of brick red for the illustrations and the bright green for the decorative initials and catchwords and the black printed text in large and small capitals throughout, provides an ideal setting for the artificiality of Wilde's text." (Muir, Victorian Illustrated Books, pp. 192-193). And Russell Taylor, in his Art Nouveau Book in Britain is also fulsome in his praise: "Whichever way one looks at it, Ricketts seems somehow to come out as the hero of any study of the art nouveau book -- each [of his books] is conceived freshly in terms of its literary materials, the design sometimes chiming with, sometimes counterpointing the qualities of the subject... in The Sphinx, the extreme elaboration of the book's form mirrors exactly the luxuriant and self-consciously perverse exoticism of Wilde's text; perversity, indeed, is even indulged graphically to the extent of having a left-hand title page." Mason 361. Ray 262. J.R. Abbey's fine copy sold at auction in 2017 for £8125.

         Salome A Tragedy in one Act: translated from the French... Pictured by Aubrey Beardsley.

      London: Elkin Matthews & John Lane, and Boston: Copeland & Day, 1894. 8vo, 66, [67, text; 68 imprint]pp. With a frontispiece, 9 plates and illustrations by Aubrey Beardsley, 16-page publisher's catalogue at end. Original blue cloth gilt stamped with device by Beardsley in gilt, virtually perfect. Ink signature of W. Irving Way Chicago 1894 on first free endpaper (see below). Enclosed in a blue quarter morocco slipcase since the day it was purchased. First English edition, limited to 500 copies translated by Lord Alfred Bruce Douglas to which the book is dedicated. Wilde's Salome was initially rehearsed in the summer of 1892 for a production at the Palace Theatre starring Sarah Bernhardt in the title role. However, owing to the representation of Biblical characters in the play, the Lord Chamberlain refused a license and the premiere was moved to Paris. Consequently, the play was first published in French in 1893, with this first English edition, augmented with several of Beardsley's most striking and iconic illustrations, appearing the year after the first French edition. The Beardsley plates are amongst his most famous illustrations. "Washington Irving Way (1853-1931) was born in Ontario, and completed a two-year college program before taking a job with a railroad. He worked for various railroad companies in Canada and the United States, ultimately becoming secretary to the president of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe railroad. He developed an interest in books, and, after losing his job as secretary when the president retired, he went to Chicago and became a bookseller. He actively contributed reviews and articles on the book trade, and was co-founder of the Duodecimos and the Caxton Club. He formed the fine-press publishing house Way & Williams; inspired by Kelmscott Press, the company published several notable books during its brief existence." (Penn State Libraries) He was a livelong friend of Thomas Bird Mosher.

         THE MOUNTAINS OF CALIFORNIA

      New York: The Century Co, 1894. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. The first issue, with "1" at the bottom of the first page. Muir's first book consists of fifteen previously published articles, some dating from as early as 1875, which aside from some very brief detours to the Coast Range and the southern San Gabriels, concern the flora, fauna, and geology of the Sierra Nevada. As recorded here, Muir theorized that the granite face of the Sierra had been shaped and scoured by glaciers, an idea that was rejected and even mocked by Josiah Whitney and other professional geologists of Muir's day. Time vindicated Muir, as it has his book - The Mountains of California remains California's most popular work of natural history. Includes a frontispiece lithograph from a drawing by J. Folles, fifty relief halftone illustrations, and two maps. Octavo. Original tan cloth binding, with decorative gilt and green stamping. Some scattered foxing to the contents, with an ink stamp ("Bentley B. Fulton") to the front flyleaf. The spine is darkened a touch, with a minor bump to the bottom corner of the front board and a bit of minor soiling; else very good. Kimes 189; Zamorano Eighty 56.

"Doyle attempted to exterminate [Holmes]. but the clamor of his admirers forced [Doyle] to resurrect Holmes for several further volumes, and his popularity has waned little since" (Benet, 273).

         The Carmina.

      London: printed for the translators: in one volume: for private subscribers only,, 1894. Now first completely Englished into Verse and Prose, the Metrical Part by Capt. Sir Richard F. Burton, and the Prose Portion, Introduction, and Notes Explanatory and Illustrative by Leonard C. Smithers. Octavo (245 x 155 mm). Mid 20th-century red polished calf by Bayntun (Rivière) of Bath, spine gilt-tooled in compartments with two coloured morocco title labels, sides panelled in gilt with floral cornerpieces, gilt-rolled board edges and turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Engraved frontispiece in three states. A few faint scrapes at upper edge of rear board, otherwise a fine copy. First edition of Burton and Smithers's complete and unexpurgated translation of Catullus, one of a small but indeterminate number of copies printed on Japanese vellum, given in the printed colophon as "limited to 4 copies", but in this copy corrected in the hand of translator and publisher Leonard Smithers, "limited to twelve copies, of which this is no. 2", with the correction initialled and also signed in full by Smithers. He did not signed all copies. Penzer notes having handled a copy with the limitation corrected to 18, which is considered likely to have been the final tally. Whatever the final amount the Japanese vellum copies are very scarce, with only three recorded as having appeared at auction in over 60 years. There were also 50 large-paper copies and 1,000 ordinary. This edition of Catullus, which reproduces the Latin original alongside Burton's verse and Smithers's prose translations, was one of Burton's final literary projects, begun in 1890 and almost finished within the year before his sudden death. It took Smithers years to persuade Burton's wife to hand over the manuscript and permit this private printing. Burton's foreword reveals his mischievous intent in executing the translation, to avoid "presenting the toga'd citizen, rough, haughty, and careless of any approbation not his own, in the costume of today, - boiled shirt, dove-tailed coat black-cloth clothes, white pocket-handerkerchief, and diamond ring", but instead to give "a version of Catullus which can transport the English reader from the teachings of our century to that preceding the Christian Era. As discovery is mostly my mania, I have hit upon a bastard urging to indulge it, by a presenting to the public of certain classics in the nude Roman poetry".
