        The Book of Antelopes.

      4to. 4 vols. Original green cloth, gilt vignette of antelope to uppers, gilt rules to boards, spines with gilt rules and lettering; pp. xxxv 220, v 194, v 245, v 242, 100 hand coloured lithographs after J. Smit and J. Wolf, 121 text illustrations; spines a little darkened, repair to one text page in vol I, otherwise very good, plates very clean. First edition. Scarce. This great work on antelopes was originally the project of Sir Victor Brook (1843 - 1891), the father of Viscount Alanbrooke and a serious big game hunter and naturalist. He supervised the production of the beautiful plates by Smit and Wolf but died of pneumonia, aged only 48, before the book could be completed. The writing of the text was taken over by Sclater, then Secretary of the Zoological Society of London, who wrote the main text, and Thomas, curator at the British Museum of Natural History, who provided the scientific descriptions. The result was a triumph both artistically and scientifically: "The book of Antelopes is a timely work and it is matter for congratulation that the colored plates prepared under the supervision of the late Sir Victor Brook more than twenty years ago are finally given to the public accompanied by such authoritative letter press" (Science, New Series, Vol 3, No. 67, April 10 1896, p. 566). The work's value partly resides in its recording of species now lost to us, hence the reviewer's appreciation of its timeliness: "... it is sad to feel that many species are on the road to rapid extinction" (Ibid.). Nissen 3784; Wood p. 558.

        In de Muizenwereld: een nieuwe vertelling

      H.J.W. Becht 1894 - H.J.W. Becht, Amsterdam. 1894. True first edition, first printing. Only copy available globally, released in a very small printing. his wonderfully illustrated fantasy – in which two children shrink to mouse size – is notable for its fine drawings, mostly of anthropomorphic mice, by the Dutch artist Ludwig Willem Reymert Wenckebach (1860-1937). Wenckebach’s books for children, regarded as pioneering, include the superb Notenkraker en Muizenkoning (The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, 1898), with rich, vibrant chromolithographic plates printed in eleven colours. The artist seems especially to have enjoyed drawing mice – which feature in both The Nutcracker and In Mouse-Land. The Wolfsonian Library (Florida) – renowned for its collection of Dutch Nieuwe Kunst (New Art) book bindings, calendars, and illustrations from the 1890s to 1920s – notes that Wenckebach was “a talented and prolific artist very well represented in the Wolfsonian collection, with more than 125 items . Most of the book bindings Wenckebach designed are typical of that era, when nature served as inspiration for all that was beautiful in art. Plants, flowers, orchids, butterflies and the curvilinear female form adorn most of the bindings he designed. But Wenckebach was also a talented graphic artist, [providing] illustrations for many children’s books. This, of course, was the age when children’s books did not shy away from vivid (and even gruesome) images that modern publishers generally eschew in books aimed at a juvenile audience. Wenckebach’s images of the Nutcracker, for example, are both profoundly moving and disturbing.” In de Muizenwereld was first published in 1894, complete with music for keyboard, integrated into the text. This is the first edition without music – featuring just the story and illustrations. An English-language version was published by J. Curwen (London) in 1910. A delightful work, very scarce in the undated first edition; I can see no other copy currently for sale online. Condition Book complete and intact. Light creasing, finger-marking and smudging to margins, three or four short closed tears to upper/lower gutters, slight foxing around stitches, occasional foxing elsewhere, one spread with staining to upper margin, two tiny stains elsewhere, five internal hinges re-glued, first (blank) page with previous owner’s name in ink, last (blank) page with small water-mark to upper edge. Endpapers plus first and last page with browning/offsetting, a little foxing and soiling; front endpapers with original bookseller’s label, trace of bookseller’s pencilled notes (erased); pastedowns with slight bubbling; rear endpaper hinge with small tear to foot. Top of page block with small water-mark. Binding a little loose. Boards and spine with soiling, staining, scratching and marks as shown, bumping, rubbing and wear to extremities, slight fraying to corners; spine with small tears to head and foot.

Une nuit de Cléopâtre est une nouvelle historique de Théophile Gautier, publiée en six feuilletons du 29 novembre au 6 décembre 1838 dans La Presse. Cette nouvelle a ensuite été fondue dans les recueils de Nouvelles de l'auteur. Traversant le Nil sur sa cange royale pour se rendre à son palais d'été, Cléopâtre « s'ennuie horriblement. » Meïamoun, amoureux de la reine, est pris en train de l'épier dans son bain. Ayant le caprice d'être clémente, Cléopâtre lui accorde une nuit orgiaque. Paul Avril avait déjà illustré avec succès chez le même éditeur Le Roi Candaule. Ferroud donne ici une superbe édition réalisée avec luxe pour les bibliophiles. rovenance : Isidoro Fernandez (1878-1963) (3 ex libris différents contrecollés au verso de la page de garde - supra libris doré), bibliophile espagnol dont l'immense bibliothèque fut dispersée aux enchères publiques en 2013 chez Christie's (The library of a Spanish Bibliophile, 20 mars 2013, Londres). Fernandez s’installa à Barcelone vers 1906. En 1911, il rencontra le Libraire Antonio Palau y Dulcet, lequel dans ses "Memories d’un llibreter catala" [Barcelona, 1935] décrit comment Isidoro Fernández évolua du statut de collectionneur de magazines vers celui de bibliophile enragé. Beaucoup de ses livres furent achetés à Paris, il les fit d’abord relier par Marius Michel et plus tard par Emilio Brugalla, un des plus prestigieux relieurs espagnols. Lors de l’"Exposición de encuadernaciones Emilio Burgalla" qui se tint à Madrid en Juin 1945, Isidoro Fernández prêta 3 livres de sa collection. Ses ex-libris furent dessinés par son plus jeune fils. Il en existe plusieurs formes, l’une d’entre-elles étant utilisée comme super-libris doré sur les plats des reliures en plein maroquin. Après son décès, sa collection fut maintenue par sa fille Flora, puis à partir de 1984, par Carlos, fils de Flora. Après le décès de Carlos en 2009, sa fille Elisa Fernández Stoykovich vendit la Bibliothèque chez Christie’s. Le total des enchères a atteint 624.775 £ ; le clou de la vente fut "Quilatador de la plata, oro y piedras" (1572) de Juan de Arfe y Villafañe, un des premiers manuels métallurgiques publiés en Europe, adjugé pour 40.000 £ (50.000 £ avec les frais). (source : site internet des Amis du Livre Pyrénéen). Le volume porte également l'ex libris de Maurice Davanne (conservateur de la bibliothèque Saint-Geneviève à Paris). Il est fort probable que le premier possesseur de ce livre fut M. Maurice Davanne au tout début du XXe siècle (bien que l'ex libris soit curieusement collé en bas, à la suite de ceux de M. Fernandez, sans doute a-t-il été déplacé ??). SUPERBE EXEMPLAIRE PARFAITEMENT ÉTABLI EN MAROQUIN DOUBLÉ DE NOULHAC. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Gismonda. Theatre de la Renaissance.

      Poster for Sarah Bernhardt's appearance in "Gismonda" at the Théâtre de la Renaissance. Paris:Lemercier 1894. Published in "Les Maitres de l'Affiche", 1896. Plate no. 27.. Les Maîtres de l'Affiche (The Masters of the Poster) refers to 256 colour lithographic plates used to create a very significant art publication during the Belle Époque in Paris, France. The collection, reproduced from the original works of ninety-seven artists in a smaller format, was put together by Jules Chéret, the father of poster art.By the 1890's the streets of French cities were enlivened by large, colourful posters. The poster had not only caught the fancy of the public, but its best examples were already being regarded as true works of art (specifically, as fine prints) to be exhibited, reviewed in journals, collected and reproduced in a more manageable form. In the last five years of the 19th century, Imprimerie Chaix was to play a great part in codifying, hallowing and perpetuating the ebullient spirit of the Belle Epoque. The renowned set of 256 prints were created by Imprimerie Chaix, forever to be known as a set as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche. Each print was rendered as a separate sheet measuring 11 x 15 inches. [27.9 x 38.1 cm]. The set was compiled in a unique way: Every month for 60 months - from December 1895 through November 1900 - subscribers received a wrapper containing four consecutively numbered prints. On 16 occasions (each of the five Decembers, each of the Junes, and the March and September of the final three years) the monthly wrapper also contained a bonus plate, not a poster reproduction but a specially created lithograph. The compilation of this set of original prints makes up the complete suite known as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche

"In his earlier books Bierbower had written about Christian ethics, suggesting in one that Christ was a Socialist. Racial memory plays an important role in this attempt to reconcile new theories with traditional beliefs. An oncoming glacier forced the 'Missing Link' from his Edenic home in the North, while snakes were the obvious enemies of the apemen and so became symbolic of evil. Equally important, Bierbower showed the first steps the apemen took in their evolution toward true mankind. In doing so, he helped to establish the main storyline for most of the novels dealing with prehistoric man." - Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 072. Bierbower "suggests the Ice Age as the effective cause of the Missing Link's expulsion from the Garden of Eden, and that proto-men's struggles with snakes were the reason the Serpent has subsequently been symbolized as Evil." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, p. 118.

        Autograph Letter Signed to George Bernard Shaw, on "Tour 1894" letterhead of the Henry Irving and Ellen Terry theater company stationery, n.p., Sept. 25, 1894

      - Friendships and rivalries in the British theater world of the 1890s show through in our letter by Stoker to fellow Irish author and playwright George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) whom he addresses as "My Dear Shaw." "[Johnny] Toole goes to Burg for the days Thursday Friday & Sat., this week - [Henry] Irving wants me to look after him. He will be at the Derby Hotel. Here is his picture [not included] so that you know him." He signs in full, "Bram Stoker." The stationery is soiled especially on verso and upper margin, with rust stain from clip on upper left edge. Tear above margin fold not affecting text. Stoker was the personal secretary to actor and theater producer Henry Irving at the time of this writing. The character of Count Dracula may have been based on Henry Irving. In his iconic horror story, Stoker incorporated his experience at Irving's Lyceum Theater by referencing plays which Irving put on there in the 1890's and 90's. According to "Bram Stoker and the Creation of Dracula," by Christopher Frayling, some of Irving's plays included, "a misquotation from Hamlet which introduces Harker's waking nightmare and which Irving always insisted on including in his version of the tragedy: 'My tablets! quick, my tablets! 'Tis meet that I put it down'." In a review, George Bernard Shaw chided, "performing Hamlet with the part of Hamlet omitted'." Through Stoker's long relationship with Irving, Stoker became involved in London's high society, meeting many people including Hall Caine, who became one of Stoker's closest friends and to whom he dedicated "Dracula." Stoker was the business manager of the Lyceum Theatre from 1878-1898, a theater which Irving owned. Also an actor, Irving appeared at the Lyceum, usually with actress Ellen Terry. When Irving took over the management of the theater in 1878, and hired Stoker, he also hired actress Ellen Terry as the company's leading lady - a partnership that lasted 25 years. Stoker and Ellen Terry were both under Henry Irving's sway and had a bond with one another. Since Terry and Shaw had a different kind of bond, it would be probable that Stoker met Shaw at various times over the course of his life. As Henry Irving's business manager, Stoker wrote many of Irving's letters including letters to Shaw which begin as ours does. George Bernard Shaw was a journalist, book reviewer, art and theatre critic who was just beginning to see success in his playwriting. His reviews of Henry Irving and the theatre productions at Irving's Lyceum theatre were quite disparaging. Shaw criticized Irving's productions almost to the point of ridicule but not Irving himself as an actor. Irving kept mostly silent about this, but then seemed to get his revenge when Shaw sent him "The Man of Destiny" to produce. Irving paid him a retainer, but never produced the play. Our research indicated that Shaw told Ellen Terry that a production by Irving would establish Shaw. Shaw was outraged when Irving refused to produce the play; hence Irving's revenge. Jealousy may have also played a part in the combative relationship between Shaw and Irving. George Bernard Shaw was enamored with Ellen Terry and jealous of Irving's connection to her which was both professional and personal. Our research shows that Shaw wanted Terry in his own plays and possibly as a love interest. The two of them did have a romance of sorts, what Shaw called a "paper courtship" which began in the 1890s. It was a long, flirtatious correspondence, but mostly likely a relationship only on paper. Other letters are known, some published, from Stoker to Shaw, with Stoker writing on behalf of Irving. This letter was written before the feud between Irving and Shaw, and Stoker's words of welcome on behalf of Irving are surprising given their future. We have not found our letter to be published. John Toole met Henry Irving when they acted together in 1857 in a summer tour in John Poole's farce "Paul Pry." They remained friends for the rest of their lives. In 1879, To

      St. Petersburg: Tiporafiia Eduarda Goppe 1894 - Large octavo (25 × 19 cm). Recent full leather binding, preserving most of the original presentation binding: the gilt-stamped leather boards, most of the spine, as well as the decorative endpapers; 224 pp. Numerous graphs and charts in the text. Very good, professional repairs to a few corners A lavishly produced and very detailed report issued on the fifty-year anniversary of the first Russian hospital for infants and children under the age of three. In 1918, the hospital was renamed the Louis Pasteur Children’s Hospital. The Elizabeth Hospital for Infants was founded on April 21, 1844 at the behest of Grand Duchess Elena Pavlovna, two of whose daughters had died as infants. It was governed by a charitable organization consisting of members of Russian nobility; among the leading doctors were Martin Mandt (1800-1858), K. A. Tillmann and E. Meier. Other members of the staff included Friedrich Karlovitch Arnheim (1845-1893), Talberg, M. L. Abel’man, the surgeon E. E. Anders, Nikolai I. Lunin (1854-1937), and the female doctor A. I. Ekkert, most of which conducted and published research findings while working at the hospital. The report describes the hos- pital’s early development, as well as its buildings and facilities. It contains details about funding and expenses, exhaustive statistics about the hospital’s work, de- scriptions of the various medical departments (such as ambulant care, therapeutic care, surgery and infectious diseases). A special section is devoted to the reasons for the high mortality rate in cases of tuberculosis. The authors give an overview of the dangers of various digestive, respiratory, and infectious ailments, and possible measures against them. Illustrated throughout with reproductions of hand-drawn charts and graphs, as well as countless tables. A tremendous source of information on the development of Russian pediatric care and medical research. The gilt-stamped original leather binding and superior paper quality suggest this was a presentation copy for a donor from the upper nobility, a high-ranking member of the government, or a member of the Russian Imperial family. The print run would have been small, as such reports were not available for sale to the public. Not in KVK or OCLC. Not found at the Russian State or National Library.The only known copy is held by the Omsk State Medical Academy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes

      George Newnes, 1894. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good. The book shows wear but still displays handsomely considering its age. The boards are marked, edge-worn and somewhat faded. The spine and the gilt lettering on it has faded somewhat. The spine is also frayed at the top and bottom. Internally the front end, and back end pages have both been removed. The pages have darkened somewhat and appear to have suffered very slight damp damage. There is also slight foxing sporadically throughout the book. Some of the top-right hand pages have crease marks from being folded. The text is nonetheless very well preserved. the condition is given in terms of the book's age.

        Pèlerinage à la Mecque et à la Médine.

      Cairo: Imprimerie Nationale,, 1894. Précédé d'un aperçu sur l'Islamisme et suivi de considérations générales au point de vue sanitaire et d'un appendice sur la circoncision. Octavo (225 × 150 mm). Black crocodile-skin-textured paper sides, red-brown cloth backstrip, black morocco label lettered in gilt to spine. Photographic frontispiece and finispiece, 17 plates after the photographs of Muhammad Sadiq Bey and al-Sayyid 'Abd al-Ghaffar al-Baghdadi. Extremities lightly rubbed with small area of wear to corner of front board, contents toned, half-title missing, old tape-repair to verso of contents page. Altogether a more than presentable copy of an uncommon publication. First and only edition. Saleh Soubhi was an Egyptian public health official commissioned by Khedive 'Abbas II to write a report on the conditions experienced by pilgrims to Mecca. He performed the Hajj twice, in 1888 and 1891, producing this detailed account, to which are affixed a response to European criticisms of Islam and an appendix making several suggestions with regard to improving hygiene practices en route. The Pèlerinage notably collects the work of the first two men to photograph the holy cities of Arabia. Muhammad Sadiq Bey was a military engineer who had performed the Hajj several times as treasurer of the Egyptian mahmal, or official caravan. His photographs of Mecca and Medina, the first ever, appeared in his work Mash'al al-Mahmal ("The Torch of the Mahmal"), published in Cairo in 1881 and now with only two copies extant in libraries worldwide (NY Public Library and the National Library of Morocco). 'Abd al-Ghaffar was a medical doctor and the first Arab photographer of Mecca. He had been taught the craft by Dutch orientalist Snouck Hurgronje, and his images were first published in Hurgronje's extremely uncommon volume Bilder aus Mekka (1889). Scarce.

All edges gilt. -------- One of the best, and most popular, illustrated books of the late nineteenth century.
