        Photogravures of American Fungi.

      C. G. Lloyd 1894-1898, Cincinnati - First edition of famed American mycologist C.G. Lloyd's first publication. A presentation copy of this collection of photogravures, evidently issued two at a time over a period of four years. Oblong quarto. Twenty-nine photogravures, 11 x 9 inches each, of various fungi, most with printed text, most numbered in sequence (1-26, final three plates with manuscript ink notations and are not numbered). Nearly all with plain tissue guards. String-tied in contemporary plain wrappers, front wrapper with the title and presentation in manuscript: "With the Compliments of Mr C. G. Lloyd/May 12, 1905/to/E. P. Sterling/[other text is lost due to damage to front wrapper]". Rear wrapper has no text. Two leaves with manuscript list of contents at front in black ink and underlined in red. Each photogravure has a penciled note at bottom, mainly stating whether the fungi in question is edible or not. Wrappers worn and chipped but with photogravures in excellent condition. A very good example of this rare, self-published collection. This publication was issued in three configurations; all copies had 26 numbered plates (as in the copy at NYPL and others); some copies were issued with three unnumbered plates of phallic mushrooms; some copies were issued with six unnumbered plates This copy, being a presentation, was sent out with 29 plates, placing it in the second configuration. It is apparent from literature of the time that the plates were issued two at a time. They were mainly for students and were never offered for sale. We can find no other copy ever having been offered at auction. Housed in a custom cloth clamshell case.This copy with a presentation inscription on the front from Lloyd to E. B. Sterling. Sterling was a collector from Trenton New Jersey, whose collections greatly enriched the holdings of the Lloyd Museum and the New Jersey State Museum. He was a founding member of the American Philatelic Society (1886), and also collected shells and coins. He worked as the director of the inheritance tax department for the state comptrol.Curtis Gates Lloyd (July 17, 1859 Ð November 11, 1926) was an American mycologist known for both his research on the Gasteromycetes, as well as his controversial views on naming conventions in taxonomy. He had a herbarium with over 59,000 fungal specimens, and published over a thousand new species of fungi. He was an accomplished photographer and actually took all the photographs in this collection. Along with his two brothers John Uri Lloyd and Nelson Ashley Lloyd, he founded the Lloyd Library and Museum in Cincinnati. During the early 1900s, C.G. was generously excused by his brothers from most of his duties with the firm of Lloyd Brothers, Inc., and devoted the majority of his time to scientific study. Establishing offices at Kew in London and in Paris, C. G. studied the existing works on mycology as well as specimens, and published his own findings. He quickly attained a prominent and fractious role as a leading authority in the field. C. G. Lloyd fought against using personal names in the identification of fungi, and attacked many of the mycologists of his day for attaching their names to anything they could grab. The Lloyd Museum is operational to this day and the works of C. G. Lloyd are still considered essential in the field of American mycology. The Lloyd museum has three copies of this item; 26, 29 and 32 plates. In none of theirs is there a title-page (rather the title is taken from the text at the bottom of the plates). Nor does any of their copies seem to have a table of contents as with this copy. It is quite likely that the "wrappers" are merely the remnants of a presentation envelope.

        [Ricketts, Charles- Proof for Copeland and Day Trial Bookplate] "Copeland & Day, LXIX, Cornhill, Boston" Printed Design On proof Paper

      Exceedingly Scarce (see below) A superb original printed proof trial (6 x 4 1/2") by Charles Ricketts for Copeland & Day bookplate, with superb illustrative design of garbed woman bending over to place a flower or pick a flower. .The bookplate is extremely scarce, especially the cream paper variant in black ink. Circa 1894, at the request of F. Holland Day, Ricketts designed this bookplate, though he never designed a book for the firm. Pictured in Kraus Bibliography (Centroid 92). A fascinating further illumination of how this scarce and important trial bookplate came to be, is given by the Ricketts scholar, Paul van Capelleveen: "What was the use of this bookplate? It was not meant for the private libraries of Copeland and Day, nor for books sold by the firm, but apparently in use as 'office copies' that were kept on the shelves of the firm. At least one book bearing this bookplate has been identified: it is a copy of Oscar Wilde's Salome (1894) that was sold at auction in 2009. The bookplate was printed in green, Kraus recorded. However, a few copies have been printed in black. These may have been proof copies. One such copy can be found in the Carl Woodring Collection, Woodson Research Center, Rice University, Houston, Texas. Another copy was recently sold at auction. Both copies, printed in green and in black, are quite rare, and more difficult to find than a copy of The Sphinx. The design is very much in style with The Sphinx drawings and lettering. The 'O' and 'A's in the bookplate have the same sort of curved lines.-- Paul van Capelleveen, 234. Copeland and Day Bookplate, charlesricketts.blogspot.com

        Le Morte D'Arthur

      London: J. M. Dent, 1893 - 1894. 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).

Er verließ früh das Bankhaus, um sich ausschließlich als Kunstsammler, Bauherr, Reiseschriftsteller, Amateurphotograph, Blumenzüchter und großzügiger Gönner zu betätigen. Vergleichbar zu den durchaus ähnlichen Werken des berühmteren anderen österreichischen Aussteigers aus gesegneten familiären Verhältnissen, des Erzherzogs Ludwig Salvator, publizierte Rothschild vorliegendes Werk für seinen engeren Freundeskreis, das Werk kam somit nie in den Handel. - Rothschild beschreibt seine beiden Mittelmeerreisen, die er mit Baron August Twickel 1893 und 1894 durchführte.

Edition limited to 220 copies (200 for sale). Watry A7. *The second of two books issued from Ricketts and Shannon's home, \i The Vale , in Chelsea, being a forerunner of books issued under The Vale Press imprint. 'Although the actual printing was done on the premises of the Ballantyne Press, the Vale books were built entirely on Mr. Ricketts' design under his personal supervision on a press set apart for his sole use; the founts, decorations, illustrations (including the engraving on wood), watermarks and pagination were all the work of Mr. Ricketts, and it is doubtful if, in the history of printing, books have been made which reflect the invention and work of one man more explicitly than do the Vale books' [Tomkinson p. 163].

OLdr.- Bände mit Rücken- und Deckelvergoldung. 47,5 x 38 cm. Blackmer 1449, Kainbacher 352. - Nr. 155 von 160 Exemplaren. - Mit handschriftl. Widmung des Verfassers an August Ritter von Loehr (1847-1917; österreichischer Eisenbahningenieur und Mineralien- u. Münzsammler) sowie Exlibris in beiden Bänden von Ignaz und Karoline Benda (von S. Kronburg). - Nathaniel Mayer (Puggy) von Rothschild (1836-1905), der älteste Sohn des Bankiers Anselm Salomon Freiherr von Rothschild, interessierte er sich nur wenig für die Geschäfte der Familie. Er verließ früh das Bankhaus, um sich ausschließlich als Kunstsammler, Bauherr, Reiseschriftsteller, Amateurphotograph, Blumenzüchter und großzügiger Gönner zu betätigen. Vergleichbar zu den durchaus ähnlichen Werken des berühmteren anderen österreichischen Aussteigers aus gesegneten familiären Verhältnissen, des Erzherzogs Ludwig Salvator, publizierte Rothschild vorliegendes Werk für seinen engeren Freundeskreis, das Werk kam somit nie in den Handel. - Rothschild beschreibt seine beiden Mittelmeerreisen, die er mit Baron August Twickel 1893 und 1894 durchführte. Mit prachtvollen Illustrationen vorgeführt werden im ersten Band u. a. die Stationen der ersten Reise: Livorno, Korsika, La Goulette, Hammam Meskoutin, Biskra, Bougie, Algier, Oran, Alicante, Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca und Barcelona. Der zweite Band dann mit Schilderungen der Reise über Dalmatien, Montenegro und Korfu nach Griechenland und der Türkei: - Sehr schönes, unbeschnittenes und tadellos erhaltene Ausgabe der prachtvollen Publikation!

        Discovery of Lakes Rudolf and Stefanie.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co.,, 1894. A Narrative of Count Samuel Teleki's Exploring & Hunting Expedition in Eastern Equatorial Africa in 1887 & 1888. By his Companion. Translated by Nancy Bell (N. D'Anvers). 2 volumes, octavo. Original blue cloth, spines lettered and decorated in gilt, blind rules to boards enclosing gilt vignette of native tribesmen to front, black endpapers, edges untrimmed. Wood-engraved frontispiece to vol. 1, map frontispiece to vol. 2, numerous illustrations to the text of which 32 full-page, mostly wood-engravings from photographs, 2 large folding colour maps linen-backed at stub as issued. Front pastedowns with the bookplate of Norman Douglas Simpson (1890-1974), Cambridge botanist who was in Africa throughout the 1920s, working for the Cotton Research Board at Giza and on irrigation projects across Egypt and Sudan while also collecting numerous plant specimens for Kew. Spines rolled, headcaps and tips lightly rubbed and bumped, a few small markings to sides, moderate foxing, very occasional marginal finger-soiling. A very good copy. First edition in English of this "excellent work of exploration and sport … African adventure at its finest" (Czech), noted for recounting the European discovery of Lake Turkana, "the last of the great lakes of Africa to be discovered" (Howgego). Hungarian nobleman Samuel Teleki (1845-1916) developed an interest in the region north of Lake Baringo, in what is now Kenya, after learning of Joseph Thomson's expedition, which reported the supposed existence of a large haunted lake further north. He was encouraged by Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria to turn an intended safari into a journey of exploration, and von Höhnel, a naval officer "would equip and arm the expedition to the highest standards, money being no object" (ibid.) The party arrived in Zanzibar late in 1886, crossed to Pangani in January the following year and reached the foothills of Kilimanjaro by June, making an assault on the summit in which Teleki reached a height of 5300 metres (von Höhnel turned back after 4950). They continued north along Thomson's route through the Masai and Kikuyu homelands, though unlike Thomson showed little respect for local customs and endured many skirmishes with Kikuyu tribesmen. They reached Lake Baringo in February 1888, and Lake Turkana the month after. Returning via Baringo, they followed the Rift Valley and passed the future site of Nairobi, arriving back at Mombasa in October with over 400 ethnographic objects and a large collection of plant and animal specimens. Von Höhnel's account originally appeared in German (1891-2). This English translation is also encountered in brown cloth, with no priority assigned. Many of the numerous original photographs taken by Teleki and von Höhnel are believed to have been destroyed during the Second World War, so are only preserved by the line-drawings in the published account.
