Blew, William C.A.
London: John C. Nimmo, 1894. First edition. Bound ca. 1960 in full red calf, covers with double gilt-ruled borders, spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled in gilt in compartments, green and tan calf labels lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, gilt board-edges and turn-ins, red and white 'Cockerel' end-papers. Royal octavo (10 x 6 3/4 inches; 255 x 170 mm.). Collating xxii, 354, with twenty hand colored lithograph plates. A fine copy. "Fifty-two years have passed since the opening of the London and Brighton railway caused the break-up of what was perhaps the best-found, the most popular, and the busiest coach-road out of London. He, therefore, who can remember even the last flicker of the expiring embers of the Coaching Era must have exceeded that uncertain period of life known as middle age; while, if we would hear from living lips of the golden age of Brighton stage-coaching, as it was from, say, 1825, we must listen to an octogenarian. But these old-world coachmen, alas! are growing fewer in number; and their memories, once so amply stored with reminiscences which would now be priceless, from the standpoint of the coaching historian, are not quite so retentive as they once were. Moreover, these ancient artists are difficult to find; and even they cannot convey one back to the earliest days of the Brighton road -- that is to say, to the middle of the last century. In venturing to put forth, therefore, some account of the Brighton road, so far as it has been possible to glean its history, I do not claim to do any more than give the dry bones of stage-coaching. It has … [Click Below for Full Description]

Twain, Mark (Samuel L. Clemens
American Publishing Company, 1894. First edition. Hardcover. 8vo. 432 pp. Bound in brown cloth with gilt lettering and black decorations on the spine and the front board. Frontispiece portrait of the author with tissue guard, marginal illustrations throughout, full-page illustration preceding "Those Extraordinary Twins". Contemporary ownership inscription (dated 1894) on the first blank leaf. First edition, first state (BAL 3442). The Tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson is a novel satirizing small town life, slavery, and racism and is generally regarded as one of Twain's most important later works. The related novella "Those Extraordinary Twins" is perhaps of more historical interest for its insights into Twain's writing process, but is representative of his lighter farce. A very handsome copy of this high spot of American literature. Near Fine. A few hints of rubbing to the extremities, but overall a very bright and clean copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

JAQUES, Mary J
Horace Cox, 1894. 1st Edition. Hardcover. VG. 1st impression. Publisher's original brown cloth with gilt stamped vignette to the front and titles to the front and spine. Inscribed by the author to 'Miss Barnett / With love from the author. / Xmas 1894.' Together with Mary Jaques family Church Services Book, 20 black and white photographs and Miss Barnett's autograph book c. 1905 which includes vers and illustrations from both Mary Jaques and Emma Hartley (a.k.a. "Didymusa", in Texan Ranch Life). The notes from a recent Texas A&M reprint say: J. Frank Dobie once claimed that 'the English write our best Western books,' and Jaques' account bears him out. Out of print for some ninety years, this collector's classic will delight and inform, entertain and amuse - a valuable resource on early Texas life, long sought by collectors and historians alike.' Chipping to head and foot of spine, light rubbing to corners, two splits in the cloth at lower joint and a few white spots on the front cover. The binding is firm and square. Internally, it is very clean with no marks, stains or damage. A very good condition copy of this acclaimed work, likely a unique survivor with the author's inscription. The accompanying photographs are in very good condition and relate to her return to the USA where she settled in San Diego, California. The photographs mainly date from 1916 - 1919. Most of them have a post card verso, on which she has written about the picture (including to the three nieces of Emma Hartley, Jessie, Gertie & Florrie). There are no stamps or post marks, they are wrap … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ohne Ort, [Anfang November 1894], 8°. 3 Seiten. Doppelblatt. Mit einer Nachschrift und Unterschrift "M. Klinger" von Max Klinger auf Seite 4. An den Maler Max Klinger (1857-1920). Klinger hatte bei der Mäzenin Marie Meyer in Freiburg ein Stipendium für Sascha Schneider erwirkt. An diese richtet sich Klingers Nachschrift: "Gestern wurde in meiner abwesenheit ein brief hier ausgetragen, welcher Ihren werten namen zum absender hatte; zugleich soll die adresse für den eingeschriebenen Brief nicht genügt haben. Ich vermute nun, daß das schreiben an Sie, geehrter herr, zurückgehen wird, wenn nicht schon gegangen ist. Würden Sie nun wohl die freundlichkeit haben und Sich nochmal bemühen. Meine genaue adresse ist: Alex. Schneider, Gerokstr. 9. part. p: a.: Bildhauer Möller. Was das stechen anlangt, so sehen Sie mich nicht mehr so verzweifelt als ich bei Ihnen war, wenigstens habe ich die überzeugung gewonnen, daß ich bei genügender frist und wohlangebrachtem fleiße mir diese technik wohl noch aneignen werde. Ich werde nächstens so frei sein und Ihnen einige proben der ersten versuche einem Briefe beizulegen.

Green, Anna Katharine [Mrs. Charles Rohlfs]
New York and London: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1894. First edition. Fine. Original publisher's cloth binding with bright gilt to spine. Clean and vivid, with the faintest hint of wear to extremities. Textblock tight and unmarked; middle signature a bit proud but firm. A much better copy than is typically found, of an activist novel by one of the mothers of detective fiction. Best known for The Leavenworth Case, Green helped define a new genre and created space for female writers within it; and she has been credited with the invention of the "girl detective" that served as a predecessor for characters such as Miss Marple and Nancy Drew. Though it has received less critical attention than titles such as The Leavenworth Case, Miss Hurd: An Enigma was important for its use of mystery and the chase to convey a feminist message. Contemporary reviews certainly picked this up, railing against Green and her heroine. In reviewing the book at its release, The Atlantic Monthly complained "The so-called Miss Hurd, a heroine of the impressive, queenly order, spends her time in running away from her husband -- who is liberally endowed with many of the gifts and graces which attract ordinary young women -- and in being discovered by him in various ingenious hiding places. To the reader the principal enigma should be, why should this long-suffering gentleman have cared to reclaim his errant spouse?" Already widely known and popular for her detective stories featuring intelligent and independent women characters, "Green's attitude toward women evolved throughout her writing career, and her port … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Westminster Gazette, 1894. First edition. The scarce first issue (July 1894) with "Dolly" as running headline and "price one shilling" at the extreme lower right corner; subsequent issues have "The Dolly Dialogues" as running headline and the price location shifted upward. Yellow pictorial wrappers, blue lettering and illustration. Mild wear and soiling to wrappers, especially on spine. The title-page is signed in black ink "Anthony Hope Hawkins." Small octavo (7 3/16 x 5 9/16 in; 182 x 142 mm). Collating 111, (1, blank). Four black and white illustrated plates in half-tone by Rackham at pp. 32, 42, 82, 104. An excellent copy. Only two copies of the first issue have come to auction within the last thirty-five years: The first had chipping, the second lacked the backstrip. " The stories that make up The Dolly Dialogues were published in the Westminster Gazette from Oct. 1893 to June 1894 and were not illustrated. In July 1894 they were collected and issued as the Westminster Gazette Library - Vol 1, with 4 no. illustrations by Rackham, and this is the first book wholly illustrated by him" (Riall). "Rackham had already illustrated several titles which are much sought after by collectors...The four pictures in The Dolly Dialogues are in the semi-photograhic style in heavy line and wash..." (Gettings). According to Hamilton's biography, Rackham used his younger sister, Winifred, as model for the cover illustration. The book's owner, Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins, better known as Anthony Hope (9 February 1863 - 8 July 1933), was an English novelist and playwright. He was … [Click Below for Full Description]

Royal octavo (10 x 6 3/4 inches; 255 x 170 mm.). Collating xxii, 354, with twenty hand colored lithograph plates. A fine copy. "Fifty-two years have passed since the opening of the London and Brighton railway caused the break-up of what was perhaps the best-found, the most popular, and the busiest coach-road out of London. He, therefore, who can remember even the last flicker of the expiring embers of the Coaching Era must have exceeded that uncertain period of life known as middle age; while, if we would hear from living lips of the golden age of Brighton stage-coaching, as it was from, say, 1825, we must listen to an octogenarian. But these old-world coachmen, alas! are growing fewer in number; and their memories, once so amply stored with reminiscences which would now be priceless, from the standpoint of the coaching historian, are not quite so retentive as they once were. Moreover, these ancient artists are difficult to find; and even they cannot convey one back to the earliest days of the Brighton road -- that is to say, to the middle of the last century. In venturing to put forth, therefore, some account of the Brighton road, so far as it has been possible to glean its history, I do not claim to do any more than give the dry bones of stage-coaching.

1894. The book is in good neat condition for its age, with minor wear and is a little grubby to the original cloth hardback cover (paper title blaze on the spine is heavily worn), with a very little light foxing near the rims. There are NO inscriptions/book-plates and NO other ink or pencil markings in the book. The binding is good with no loose or missing pages. There is no dust-jacket. GOOD to VERY GOOD CONDITION This sale is for a VICTORIAN hardback edition entitled "Pride and Prejudice," by Jane Austen, with a Preface by George Saintsbury and illustrated with 101 pen and ink drawings by Hugh Thomson (1860-1920), including a tissue-guarded frontispiece. It was published by George Allen, of London, in 1894 and appears to be the first edition in this illustrated form - the larger untrimmed issue. It is one of an unspecified number of copies which were issued by the publishers with untrimmed fore and lower page edges, issued in a plain green binding with a printed paper label. This copy is in its original form. This is the story of the lively and rebellious Elizabeth Bennet, one of five unmarried daughters living in the countryside of 19th century England. In a world where obtaining an advantageous marriage is a woman's sole occupation, Elizabeth's independent manner threatens her family's future. Will her romantic sparring with the mysterious and arrogant Darcy end in misfortune - or will love's true nature prevail? Jane Austen (1775-1817) was an English novelist and one of the most widely read and most beloved writers in English literature. From 1811 until 1815, with the … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Wisden
Hi, This lot is an 1894 Rebound Wisden with Original Covers - Signed by Jack Hobbs. It is in Good Condition. ""To my old friend Jack Mears, with all good wishes from Jack Hobbs"" it states on the first page and not the usual j.b.hobbs autograph so a nice formal piece of prose in this 1894. The binding is a bit tatty and the covers are dark, odd dog ear inside but clean pages and great photoplate but topped off by the Hobbs note.

Charles Dickens
This is a 1894 limited edition 32 volume set of the complete works of Charles Dickens. Unfortunately it is missing 9 of the Volumes. Numbers 4, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 & 31 are all missing. However, Volume #1 is included and intact. In the front of Vol. 1 is an vintage original check hand signed by Charles Dickens from his estate. This was an edition of 500 and the first volume of each of the sets included a check from his estate. This edition is #262 of 500. It was published in 1894 by Houghton Mifflin of London. So if any of the volumes were to survive it is fortune that it was #1 with his signature. The condition varies a little from volume to volume. All have some general age wear. The 1st Volume has a little water staining on the back cover, but is generally in good condition. It does have a rip from the spine to the check's edge on the check page and can be seen in the photos. The check is not damaged. The photos show front and back of the first Volume in the first couple pictures. There are other photos of some of the more obvious wear on several of the other volumes. Several books have very little wear as well. Although it is an incomplete set, considering there were only 500 printed originally, and I'm sure some may have been lost in the bombing of London during WWII. As well as the 126 years since it's first printing. This is a rare set of books and unique with the attached signed check. Please contact me before bidding with any questions.
