        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.

        The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard.

      London: George Newnes Ltd., 1894 - 1895. - The FIRST APPEARANCES of the somewhat foppish French soldier. 13 issues: December 1894 to December 1895. Quarto. Each issue bound in the Strand Magazine's customary light blue soft paper covers, showing a view of the Strand to front cover, volume number, date, and title to spine, and advertisments to rear cover. Numerous illustrations, including a number by W.B. Wollen. These issues also include two notable stories by Verne, and an article by Doyle on Skiing which includes a photograph of Doyle in the act. With clamshell box, bound in quarter blue morocco over blue cloth boards, with raised bands and gilt titles to spine. All issues are rubbed, worn at spine ends, and a little grubby. The front cover of January 1895 bears a recent date inscription in biro. The back cover of June 1895 has become detached. Internally clean and free from spotting. These issues contain all of the stories later published as The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard. Gerard is an extraordinarily vain French soldier, fighting in the armies of Napoleon. Full of Doyle's trademark adventure and derring do, these stories are rendered all the more interesting by elegant flourishes of satire, baldly caricaturing the French, but also cocking a snook at staid British values. Gerard serves in various conflicts across Europe, including in the Iberian peninsula, Germany, Russia, and additionally does a notable stint in Dartmoor Prison.

        PHOTOGRAPH ***Signed***

      - Signed "George Meany" in black ink.This photograph measures 8" X 10" and is in FINE condition. George Meany, (born August 16, 1894, New York, New York, U.S.¿died January 10, 1980, Washington, D.C.), U.S. labour leader, president of the American Federation of Labor¿Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) from the time the two unions merged in 1955 until 1979, when he retired. A plumber¿s son and a plumber himself by trade, Meany joined the United Association of Plumbers and Steam Fitters of the United States and Canada in 1915 and was elected business agent of a Plumbers and Steam Fitters local in 1922. In 1932 he was elected a vice president of the New York State Federation of Labor, and he served as its president from 1934 to 1939. His work moved to the national level with his 1939 election as secretary-treasurer of the American Federation of Labor (AFL). Upon the death of William Green in 1952, Meany became the AFL¿s president. One of Meany¿s greatest accomplishments was the merger of two competitive and dissimilar labour organizations: the AFL, which was organized by craft, and the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO), which was organized by industry. His long tenure as president of the combined AFL-CIO made him the leading spokesman for American labour interests, and he used his power vigorously. He transformed the nature of the U.S. labour movement from radical to conservative, preferring to achieve goals through lobbying and dispute arbitration rather than through strikes and marches. In 1957 he expelled the Teamsters Union, led by Jimmy Hoffa, from the AFL-CIO, and he lost the United Auto Workers after disputes with its president, Walter Reuther, in 1968. Though Meany was considered tardy in supporting equal job opportunities, the program that he eventually approved became the cornerstone of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In 1963 Meany was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In 1977 he helped to lead the United States out of the International Labour Organisation when it refused to criticize repressive communist policies. Labour historians note that during Meany¿s term as AFL-CIO president, union membership as a percentage of the nonagricultural U.S. workforce declined from 33 percent in 1955 to 23 percent in 1979.

        Autograph Letter Signed, 8vo, Paris, February 12, 1895

      Clemens writes to Henry Loomis Nelson, chief editor of "Harper's Weekly" (1894-1898), referring to writing a story for the magazine and informing Nelson of his travel plans to New York. "Oh, but I did intend to write for the Weekly; but I never happened to strike a subject that seemed suitable. I believe I have written only two miscellaneous things since then - a skit at Bourget & a small tale, & neither of those seemed suitable. But I shall be in New York per 'New York' March 2d or 3d, & then may be you can knock out a subject for me..." He signs, "S.L. Clemens". Twain's mention of the "Bourget skit & a small tale" are most likely references to his "What Paul Bourget Thinks of Us" and "How to Tell a Story." Paul Bourget, the French poet, writer and critic, wrote about his interpretations of Americans and in "What Paul Bourget Thinks of Us," Twain, who had already spent time observing and writing about Europe and who had criticized the French, retorts to Bourget's comments criticizing Americans. The story was first published in the "North American Review," Volume 160, number 458 (January 1895). In L. Clark Keating's "Mark Twain and Paul Bourget," he notes, "In fact in Paul Bourget we have the perfect antithesis of Clemens… He was afraid lest America's democratic principles and her materialism should have a harmful influence on Europe." his work, along with "How to Tell a Story" and several other essays were published by Harper in 1897. "How to Tell a Story" was first published, however, in the October 3, 1895 issue of the "Youth's Companion." It is most likely that this story is the "short tale" to which Twain is referring, but a part of "How to Tell a Story" includes a shorter tale, "The Golden Arm," "a short tale… appearing in print first obscurely in 1888, then in "How to Tell a Story…." ["The Routledge Encyclopedia of Mark Twain," pp. 369-370]. "The Golden Arm" is a folktale or ghost story used by Twain in his "How to tell a Story.". Twain had a long relationship with Harper's. His stories appeared in all the national magazines of his day, but "Harper's Weekly" was the first national magazine to publish one of his stories, "43 Days in an Open Boat" in December 1866.. While Mark Twain earned quite a bit of money from his writings and lectures, he ran into financial difficulties over the course of the last twenty years or so of his life, particularly due to some unwise investments. In addition, the collapse of two leading companies in the U.S., the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad and the National Cordage Company, caused the stock market panic of 1893, producing a serious economic depression. Due to these setbacks, Twain filed for bankruptcy. He would eventually overcame these financial struggles with the partial aid of Harper's. Twain sailed from Southampton, England, on February 23, 1895 on the S.S. New York, bound for New York in order to arrange for publication of "Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc," and to review a proposal to publish an edition of his works. ["Mark Twain's Correspondence with Henry Huttleston Rogers, 1893-1909," edited by Lewis Leary, 1969, Chapter II, pp. 132-230]. Days before he wrote our letter informing Nelson of his travel plans, Twain had finished "Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc" in Paris on February 8, 1895. The book was his last completed novel, published by Harper and Bros. in 1896, but first published as a serialization in "Harper's Monthly Magazine" beginning in March of 1895. ["The Routledge Encyclopedia of Mark Twain," p. 421]. The serialized version was published anonymously as Twain wanted the public to take it more seriously than if they knew it was by the popular humorist, but that anonymity was short lived. In addition to Harper's publishing his "Joan of Arc" and "Tom Sawyer, Detective," financier Henry Huttleston Rogers helped Twain recoup some of his financial losses. Twain began an around-the-world lecture tour in July of 1895, about five months after he penned our letter.

        Nouvelle Géographie Universelle

      Paris: Hachette, 1894. An excellent set.. Nineteen volumes, quarto, numerous maps and steel engraved plates; a fine set in attractive uniform contemporary half morocco by Magnier and Sons, spine banded with ornate gilt ornament. Acclaimed late nineteenth century geographical cyclopaedia in a handsome and contemporary binding.The Nouvelle Géographie Universelle was the opus of brilliant French geographer and political activist Élisée Reclus (1830-1905). Reclus lived a turbulent life and was exiled from France for his involvement in the Paris Commune of 1871. Today he is remembered as a founding father of modern geography, integrating social observation with the detailed study of landscape, ecology and climate.In part due to Reclus' influence, geography grew from a study of cartography and resources to an integrated academic discipline of great significance. Renowned for its scope and accuracy, the Nouvelle Géographie Universelle was greeted as an authoritative text and soon translated into English.One volume is devoted to Australia and Oceania and includes a large colour folding map of the Pacific. Australia and Tasmania are treated in over 100 pages, with detailed steel engraved plates depicting an Aboriginal family of north Queensland, the Grose Valley in the Blue Mountains, views of Sydney Harbour, Hobart Town and Bendigo (among other settlements), the tall gum forests of Victoria and a squatter in his slab hut.Of particular interest is a double page chromolithographic map of Sydney and environs detailing the street plan of the city centre and roads to North Sydney, Bondi and Manly (with harbour depth indicated in shades of blue).

DNB: "In 1892 Conway led a large-scale mountaineering expedition to the Karakoram Himalayas with the financial support of scientific societies and his father-in-law, Manton Marble. Marble was not sure about Conway's motives: 'Tis not quite relevant to your art-career to be climbing mountains, but I perceive that Alpine, Caucasian, or Himalayan supereminence may be the corner-stone of artistic eminence' (Evans, 134). Conway's large party surveyed the Baltoro glacier and the region around K2, and ascended Pioneer Peak on Baltoro Kangri, which at 6890 metres may have constituted an altitude record at the time."

(1), half-title, 219 pp., frontis illus; 4 pp. advertisements; 8vo; original gilt stamped tan cloth with front cover and spine illustrations in bronze & black; 24 plate illustrations. BAL notes some copies with an extra fly-leaf at the back, however this copy lacks front endpapers (i-iv) as called for, starts with the half-title and has two blank endpapers in back. The appearance suggests that the book was misbound in this way, as the book is overall very fresh and tight with no indication of f.e.p removed. There is the appearance of a rectangular strip of glue or paste under front pastedown near hinge, with corresponding light offset on half-title, but front paste down and half-title appear to be the same sheet. Similar use of adhesive under rear pastedown, so we are surmising that this was part of the original binding process. (Or we are wrong and in need of a second, better informed opinion.) Ownership name in pen vertically across f.e.p.; moderate bubbling of cloth on back cover and a bit on upper spine. Otherwise a very bright, clean copy.
