        Burne-Jones coat of arms bookplate design

      1894. Burne-Jones, Edward. Two designs for Sir Edward Burne-Jones's coat-of-arms bookplate. The first design is done in pencil, with various studies sketched in the margins; pencil notes on the recto and verso by Robert Catterson-Smith, signed and dated 30 December 1927, explain that the design was intended for Catterson-Smith to translate into an ink line drawing. The second sheet features the same design in a rough pen and ink wash. Burne-Jones was offered a Baronetcy in November 1893 on the recommendation of Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone. The title was formalized on May 3, 1894, after which Burne-Jones took the necessary steps of creating a family crest and motto. This bookplate shows an early try at creating that heraldry. In the sketch, the crest is made up of two wings against stylized fire and an estoile, a star with six wavy rays, in the center. Below, the coat of arms has a diagonal band with three sets of wings over a field spangled with seven estoiles and a hand, which represents the baronetcy. A curling banner shows the family motto, also chosen by Burne-Jones, "sequar et attingam," which means "I will follow and attain." The set likely shows an attempt at actually designing the coat of arms, rather than simply transferring the finished design onto a bookplate, as there are several key differences between the sketches and the final, formalized heraldry. In the official design, the hand is absent, and the wavy-legged estoiles are simple straight-legged mullets. Also, the helmet sketches in the margins suggest that Burne-Jones was considering other ideas for the crest before he settled on the wings and fire. This set offers an interesting glimpse into the process of an artist becoming a peer. Light soiling to both pages, and some spotting to the pencil design. (Memorials of Edward Burne-Jones, p. 241; The Art of Heraldry, p. 70; Fairbairn's book of crests of the families of Great Britain and Ireland, p. 309).

        Beyond the Ice. Being a story of the newly discovered region round the north pole. Edited from Dr. Frank Farleigh's diary.

      - London, Sampson Low & Melbourne, Hutchinson [1894]. Octavo publisher's illustrated blue cloth (two small blobs of wax on the front cover, marks on the back). Somewhat canted, not a bad copy of a book guaranteed to respond badly to handling. A signed presentation, dated March 1894, from Murphy to Geelong lawyer Aurel Just, "gentleman, Dremanist and possessor of other titles," with a quote from his character Vernon Dreman. Only edition of this polar utopia and dystopia which Murphy - I suspect simple perversity - took to the opposite end of the world in defiance of the usual Australian practice of heading south. Heaps of scientific advances and flying machines as expected but reform and enlightened progress can only go so far: adult women are enfranchised until they marry, then the possible conflict between husband and wife is not worth the candle. "The chief characters seem to spend a deal of unnecessary time in consuming oysters and brown bread" warned the North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser in an otherwise warm review while suggesting it would be commercially more canny to set the book in central Australia.

        Le Morte D'Arthur

      London: J. M. Dent, 1894. First edition thus. One of just 300 copies of the superior issue on Dutch hand-made paper, complete in three volumes. Bound in early three quarter black morocco over marbled boards. Five raised bands on the spines, gilt top-edges, marbled end-papers; bindings handsome and in excellent condition. Light to moderate foxing on the first and last couple pages, Beardsley plates toned (as usual), several leaves unopened. Malory translated and compiled the legends of Arthur, Merlin, Lancelot, Guinevere, Sir Gawain, and the Knights of the Round Table, using numerous French and English sources. His work was first published in 1485 by William Caxton, the first English printer. It proved immensely popular and became the basis for the countless retellings and adaptations throughout the next five centuries (with a few periods of silence, namely 1634 - 1816). We can think of no other collection of stories that have more fully captured the imagination and passion of the English people than the Arthurian legends. "It is the only true English epic; its matter is 'the Matter of England'. The matchless style, the humour, the magnificence, the magic that takes away the breath, combine in a masterpiece of legendary narrative. Each century has produced its own version of the Arthurian tapestry, but Malory's will never be forgotten." (Printing and the Mind of Man, 29).

        Spring - Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema.

      SPRINGHeliogravure vervaardigd in 1894 door de Berlin Photographic Co. naar het schilderij (Opus CLXXV) van Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Later met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 89 x 39,5 cm. In originele lijst.Vermoedelijk draait het in Spring om een processie tijdens de Floralia, een bloemenfeest gehouden in de vroege Romeinse keizertijd van 28 april tot 3 mei. Tijdens het festival stond Flora, de godin van de bloemen en planten, centraal.Het schilderij is een van Alma-Tadema"s beroemdste en meest ambitieuze werken. De vrolijke optocht daalt af van de Palatijnse heuvel. Dienaren en dienaressen van de Tempel van Flora bespelen tamboerijn en fluit. Achter hen, onder het baldakijn, loopt een bebaarde priester, met de gelaatstrekken van Alma-Tadema zelf. Vanaf de daken van de marmeren paleizen werpen toeschouwers overvloedig bloemen.Een vers van dichter A.C. Swinburne staat vermeld onder de prent (bij het schilderij staat deze op de lijst):In a land of clear colours and stories,In a region of shadowless hours,Where the earth has a garment of glories,And a murmur of musical flowers.De setting van het werk is fictief, architectonische details uit een groot aantal verschillende bronnen werden er voor samengebracht, waaronder muurschilderingen uit Pompeï in het balkon bovenaan de trap en de fries met strijdende centauren uit de tempel van Apollo bij Bassae op het gebouw links. Halverwege de stoet worden twee beelden van Satyrs gedragen, met in hun hand een mand met fruit en Dionysos als kind op de schouder als personificatie van de groeikracht van de aarde.Voor het schilderij Spring kreeg Alma-Tadema de Grand Prix tijdens de wereldtentoonstelling van 1900 in Parijs. Het werk oogstte veel lof van de toenmalige critici, tegenwoordig is het een van de meest geliefde schilderijen van het J. Paul Getty Museum (hier te zien).Prijs: € 4.500,- (incl. lijst).

        Manuscript Journals - 19th Century Tour of Rome - Excellent Content with Photograhps

      Italy, 1894. Italy, 24 September - 19 October 1894. Manuscript travel journal of a tour to Rome, written by Hubert Henry Grubbe (1856-1937) and containing photographs taken and collected on the journey. 8vo. 73 pages in manuscript, plus 45 original photographs. Also tipped in throughout the volume are 6 small railway route maps, 2 folding city maps (Venice and Strassbourg), several additional printed illustrations, newspaper and magazine clippings, ephemeral itineraries and a menu. Photographs vary in size, the smaller purchased photographs measuring approximately 6,5 x 5 cm, and the larger snapshot views measuring 6,5 x 9,5 cm. 8vo. Half calf over red marbled boards. Minor wear to boards with slight partial separation at hinge, otherwise in very good condition, an engaging, well illustrated, and scholastic work. Together with an envelope containing additional photographs from the journey, some of which are duplicates, and a signed manuscript letter by John Thomas Woolrych Perowne, organizer of the tour, including a prospectus offering the tour to Rome. The journal is accompanied by a contemporary sepia photograph of the writer, Hubert Henry Grubbe, taken in 1891, and measuring 8,5 x 11 cm, and an earlier paper passport issued to him for "travelling on the continent" in 1882. The passport is signed in the original by Granville George Leveson-Gower, 2nd Earl Granville, during his third term as Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, is contained in the original envelope with red wax seal, and measures 27 x 37 cm. In addition, a letter written in Rome in 1904, by Grubbe himself, reveals that again he and his brother were making a similar tour of Italy. Antiquities spanning centuries of Roman empires, Renaissance period art, and the remains of ecclesiastical hegemony, are the focus of interest for two English brothers whose journey to Rome is described in this diary. Grubbe wastes very little time or ink on the banal, thereby virtually omitting weather observations and breakfast detail. So engrossed in absorbing the history of every Roman monument, catacomb, and architectural development of past empires, as well as significant events up to and including the nineteenth century, this travellogue is nothing short of encyclopaedic. The first entry is made on the 24th September 1894, at London's former Holborn Viaduct Hotel (demolished in 1963), the following day the travellers departing from Dover to cross the English Channel to Ostend in Belgium. Thirteen (13) pages are devoted to describe a railway journey to Basel, Lucerne, Brunnen, and Airolo in Switzerland's mountainous regions, describing high peaks, lakes, and also mentioning Chiasso, the final stop before reaching Italy. Upon arriving in Italy, they spend two days in Milan, from where, on an overnight journey, another train takes the travellers directly to Rome. They settle at the Hotel de Russie, built at the turn of the nineteenth century and still a fine establishment today. A thorough one week tour of Rome in the fall of 1894 renders 31 pages of detailed manuscript descriptions, illustrated with 12 photographs. Some of the places seen and described include the Piazza del Popolo square, Piazza del Campidoglio designed by in the sixteenth century by Michelangelo, Piazza San Pietro [St. Peter's Square] and the cathedral, the Quirinal Palace, Catacomb of Callixtus. In the Vatican Grubbe admires the exquisite Sistine Chapel renowned for its ceiling frescos by Michelangelo, the Stanze of Raphael and the other Raphael Rooms in the Pontifical Palace. Grubbe makes special note of the Basilica of Saint Clement where archaeological discoveries had been made only thirty years prior to his visit, including evidence of the early church in Rome making human sacrifices to a Persian god. The tour continues to Pincio Terrace, the Castel Sant'Angelo [Mausoleum of Hadrian], the Forum Romanum and its surrounding ruins of important ancient kingdom government buildings and temples, the Porta San Lorenzo gate of Emperor Aurelian's walled city, then making a sojourn to Hadrian's Villa at Tivoli, some 30 kilometers from Rome. Returning to the Vatican museums, he examines different buildings including the Museo Pio-Clementino of which he mentions pillaging during the French Revolution. A visit to Rome is not complete without seeing Capitoline Hill and the Pantheon, which find their due place in his journal, followed by descriptions of the church and convent at the Piazza della Minerva, the famous Baroque Trevi Fountain, and a few other religious sites. The Grubbe brothers further visited Naples and the hilltop medieval fortress Castel Sant'Elmo, Sorrento, and the island of Capri, returning via Florence, Venice, and again Milan. Of course Pompei and Mount Vesuvius are also visited. The last travel entry is made on 19 October when the brothers have arrived back at the Holborn Viaduct Hotel. The volume continues, however with assorted manuscript notes and several clipped articles and images, the theme mainly being Roman architecture. Excerpts from the manuscript: "The Royal Palace is an enormous building... extensive gardens at the back... Up the stairs accompanied by an official into the Sala Regio & adjoining Pauline Chapel... the Throne Room, Ambassador's Hall... Victor Emmanuel II forcibly seized the Quirinal in 1871 & died there in 1878." "The Roman catacombs are a vast labyrinth of galleries excavated in the bowels of the earth in the hills around the eternal city, not in the hills on which the city itself was built, but those beyond the walls... The galleries are formed, 3, 4, or 5, one above the other... vast excavations were began in apostolic times..." [Archbasilica of St. John Lateran] "... till 1870 the Pope's coronation always took place here." "St. Clemente. A most interesting place, consisting of three structures of different ages built one over the other... a staircase leads to the Lower Church first discovered in 1857 containing many pillars of the rarest marbles in perfect preservation & a very curious series of frescoes of the 8th and 9th centuries... a third structure, discovered 1867, probably the very house of St. Clementine... an altar & other relics found here... the worship of that Persian deity was introduced, to whom human sacrifices were offered at Rome in the reign of Commodus. This third church is unfortunately often under water..." "Tyhe Vatican collection of antiquities the finest in the world was begun by Pope Julius II who had the Belvedere erected.... the Museo-Clementino... was despoiled of its treasures by the French in 1797 but mostly restored in 1816." End Excerpts. The accompanying letter is written by Lieutenant-Colonel John Thomas Woolrych Perowne (1863-1954), who organized and promoted the tour. In it is included original prospectus leaf for this journey, which was organized by him for educational travel. The leaflet describes him as a scholar. He was a British Army officer, a King's Messenger and a Gold Staff Officer at the Coronation of King George VI in 1937, and author of "Russian Hosts and English Guests in Central Asia" (1898). [His son, Sir Victor Perowne (1897-1951), a British diplomat, held posts in the Foreign Office and was subsequently appointed Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to the Holy See. He died in office in Rome in 1951.] Hubert Henry Grubbe (1856-1937) was an electrician and a farmer who lived in Southwold, Suffolk, and who evidently had an interest in Roman history. He travelled with his brother Arthur Robert Grubbe (1851-1914). Both brothers were born at Queen Square, Holborn, Middlesex, the sons of John Eustace Grubbe (1815-1899), a Barrister-at-Law of the Inner Temple, a Justice of the Peace (JP) for Suffolk and the Borough of Southwold, and twice being elected Mayor of Southwold serving in 1867-1875 and 1879-1891. They had ten other siblings. . Very Good.

Le Président-Fondateur n'est plus en odeur de sainteté pour une partie non négligeable des membres de cette petite chapelle bibliophilique, aussi dénommée Académie des Beaux Livres. Certains accusent Octave Uzanne d'agir à sa guise, en despote, sans tenir compte de l'avis des membres. Octave Uzanne finira par jeter l'éponge et demandera la dissolution de cette assemblée cette même année. Plusieurs ouvrages de qualité auront néanmoins vu le jour pendant les quelques années d'activité de cette société de bibliophiles esthètes, sous la direction d'Octave Uzanne, principal animateur et promoteur de l'esprit qui l'a fait vivre.BEL EXEMPLAIRE, DE LA PLUS GRANDE RARETÉ [Attributes: Hard Cover]
