        Reminiscences of the Baltic Fleet 0f 1855

      Printed not Published, D H Edwards, Brechin, 1894. First Edition Privately Printed; Original very good maroon decorative boards, hardback, open title surrounded by gilt to front board, embellished with a spray of flowers printed in black, bevelled edges, some minor wear. Dark brown endpapers, SIGNED - dedication hand written by the author under the black and white portrait frontispiece. ' To Admiral Alington with the compliments of The Author Nov. 1896.' This book is very smart and clean, vi, 138 pages including index. Illustrated with black and white engravings. There are 10 Full page black & white plates, plus 2 double page maps, and numerous engraved embellishments in the text. The Preface begins 'The following reminiscences have been compiled from a Journal kept by me while serving in the Baltic Fleet, supplemented by recollections which had not and never can fade from my memory ---.' This is a book that is not readily available on the open market. It is interesting because it is privately published and represents the experiences of someone who actually saw what happened. It is printed 40 years after the event and the author feels. After the lapse of forty years I am able to write of these matters, as well as to mention shipmates by name,in a way impossible for the first decade or two following the events described ---.' The author sums up his preface with 'This book is only for my family and friends to whom I feel it will be acceptable ---.' If we look at the Contents it has 14 Chapter headings and an Appendix. To give an idea the headings are Volunteering, Portsmouth, Join the Fleet, Life on the "Duke" (Duke of Wellington.),Routine of a War Ship, Shipmates, Rendezvous at Kiel, Revl and Nargen, Croustadt, Internal Machines, Preparations against Sweaborg, Bombardment at Sweaborg, Post Bombardment, Homeward Bound, Appendix - Some of our Baltic Gun Room Songs, Index. A few pencil annotations that are quite interesting in themselves. Names of ships, liners, commanders and other crew. Plenty of information from the time of the Crimean War. This is a delightful piece of personally documented history. The writer was a ships physician. A real treasure for collectors of Antiquarian Maritime books. Rare and unusual. It is a privilege to look at one man's insight into the Baltic Fleet of 1855.

        THE YELLOW BOOK - An Illustrated Quarterly (1894-1897 13 volumi tutto il pubblicato), London, Mathews & Lane, 1894

      16,5 x 20, bella leg. editoriale in giallo, con piatti e dorsi figurati, tutti sono in ottime condizioni, (il dorso del volume III ha preso luce), molti fogli sono ancora chiusi e tutte le tavole fuori testo sono protette da veline. Il colore giallo delle copertine venne scelto VOLUTAMENTE dall'editore per dare un tocco di "trasgressione" ai lettori "dell'Inghilterra puritana di fine '800" (Anche le "donnine" veneziane vestivano di giallo) Questa famosa rivista artistica inglese ha avuto una storia polemica che ha coinvolto l'amicizia tra BEARDSLEY AUBREY 1871-1898 (Il quale ha illustrato magistralmente alcune copertine delle prime 4 annate ed anche con num. tav. fuori testo all'interno, in tutti i primi 4 volumi, precedente la sua scomparsa) e OSCAR WILDE. Beardsley aveva in precedenza illustrato il famoso testo "Salomè" per Wilde, e le cronache del tempo non sono proprio categoriche nel sottilineare "l'amichevole frequentazione", ma l'opinione pubblica aveva già emesso la sentenza. I giornali del tempo riferiscono che quando Wilde venne arrestato ed imprigionato, chiese di passare dal suo studio, dove ritirò un volume di The Yellow Book e con esso sottobraccio entro' in carcere (anche per sottolineare pubblicamente l'ammirazione per la rivista stessa). Prescindendo da questi riferimenti, la rivista è di ottima qualità sia per le illustrazioni di altri valenti artisti (decine di tav. f.t.) che i contributi letterari (Beerbohm, John Buchan, Elia D'Arcy, Joh Davidson, Richard Garnett ed altri. Volume I April 1894 pp. 272 " II July 1894 pp. 360 " III October 1894 pp. 278 " IV January 1895 pp. 284 " V April 1895 pp. 318 " VI July 1895 pp. 336 " VII October 1895 pp. 320 " VIII Januyary 1896 pp. 406 " IX April 1896 pp. 256 " X July 1896 pp. 344 " XI October 1896 pp. 342 " XII January 1897 pp. 344 " XIII April 1897 pp. 316 La collezione completa dei 13 volumi

        The First Whig. An Account of the Parliamentary Career of William Sacheverell, the Origin of the Two Great Political Parties and the Events Which Led Up to the Revolution of 1688

      Scarborough: Printed by the Author at His Private Press. 1894. 8vo (23.5 cm x 15.5 cm). F First Edition. H Hard Cover. Very Good. First edition [1894]. Scarce history of the Whig Party and William Sacheverell, written and privately printed by the author, Sir George Sitwell. Chapters arranged chronologically: The Country Party; The Popish Plot; The Impeachment of Danby; The Bill of Exclusion; The Green Ribbon Club; Electioneering Methods of the Whigs; The Later History of Pope-Burning; The Tory Reaction; Life in the Country; and The Revolution; with Appendices: Titus Oates and the Tory Party; The Members of the Green Ribbon Club; Index of Sacheverell's Speeches; and Index of Authorities Referred to in the Text. Includes numerous illustrations, with depictions of the Green Ribbon Club and a pope-burning. Tan cloth with calf spine, gilt spine lettering, xvi, 225p. One page prospectus tipped onto front free endpaper describing the book as "An account of the political career of William Sacheverell, the first Whig leader of the House of Commons. This will make a small 4to of some sixty pages, with a few illustrations, and will be issued in June, 1891. There are no copies for sale". We know of no 1891 edition, nor of any editions of that size and configuration, so perhaps the book just took the author longer longer than originally anticipated, resulting in a much longer book. Some wear and chipping to the spine ends (see image provided), gilt spine lettering dulled. Corners bumped, some of the fabric frayed. Internally much better, with good hinges, firm binding, very clean pages free from names, markings, etc. Endpapers lightly soiled but otherwise very clean. Discreet single library stamp on reverse side of title page, no other library indicia. A clean and sound copy.

Sadleir records three copies, all of which had been in the possession of Blackmore's niece, Eva Pinto Leite. Alfredo Pinto Leite, a Portuguese wine merchant, was married to Agnes Maguire, the sister of Blackmore's wife Lucy.

        Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar for 1894

      Dawson's Landing, Mo.: Set Up and Printed for Mr. Wilson by Henry Butts, 1894. 16pp. Mark Twain's smallest first edition, form C (no priority). Issued as an advertisement for The Century Magazine, which was running "Pudd'nhead Wilson" in serial form. The calendar may have been produced from multiple, not duplicate, settings, and it is possible that all three forms were issued simultaneously. Each month shows a droll paragraph from Mark Twain, such as the one that ends: "put all your eggs in one basket and--watch that basket." Contains an illustration of "Thumb Prints," and a long quotation in which Pudd'nhead discusses the new method of detecting by means of fingerprints. The typesetting is intentionally and comically incompetent, with letters upside down. A delightful, very rare, and fragile Twain item. 1/8 inch tear to cover, still unusually fine in printed yellow wrappers. (BAL 3439). (3 by 2 1/2; 76x60mm).

Journal illustré de nombreux dessins en couleurs et en noir et blanc, parfois en pleine page voire en double page, ainsi que de partitions musicales. Gil Blas est un ancien hebdomadaire de presse écrite français, fondé par Auguste Dumont, qui a paru du 19 novembre 1879 au 4 août 1914, puis très épisodiquement du 20 janvier 1921 à mars 1940. Pendant une période, à partir du 17 novembre 1909, il fut dirigé par Henri de Noussanne et Pierre de Maroussein. Le Gil Blas se voulut d'abord littéraire. De grandes plumes s'y exprimèrent dans des chroniques qui connurent un vif succès : Guy de Maupassant (ou Maufrigneuse) dont la collaboration fut la plus longue (1881-1888), Paul Arène, Émile Bergerat, Clovis Hugues, René Maizeroy, Jean Richepin, etc. Tout aussi importants étaient les feuilletons, signés par Émile Zola, Hector Malot, Théodore de Banville, et Octave Mirbeau notamment. De son côté, Maupassant y publia « Une vie » (février-avril 1883), « Bel Ami » (avril-mai 1885), « Mont-Oriol » (décembre 1886-jévrier 1887), etc. Outre ces chroniques et ces feuilletons, Zola défendit certaines de ses œuvres dans le journal, par le biais des « Lettres au Directeur » (sur « le Rêve », 8 novembre 1888 ; sur « la Bête humaine », 13 novembre 1889). - Gil Blas, Paris _1894, 27,5x41cm. -

Classic First Editions, First Issue. Wonderfully illustrated in black & white throughout by Kipling's father, J. Lockwood Kipling with W. H. Drake & P. Frenzeny.

A lovely near fine or better copy, all edges gilt WITH The Second Jungle Book bound in gilt ruled & titled half red calf & linen, five raised bands, covers bound in at the rear. A fine excellent example. "This most desirable pair will always fill an honorable place in any library of children's books" (Quayle 87). Richards A76 & A85; Stewart 123 & 132. Livingston 104, 116. A lovely mixed set of one of the cornerstone titles in children's literature & Kipling highlight & along with Just So Stories, his most beloved work. Custom red & blue leather slipcase. First published in magazine format in 1893-4. British Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling was born in India lived there & in England & wrote these stories when he lived in Vermont. The tales are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The verses of The Law of the Jungle, for example, lay down rules for the safety of individuals, families & communities. Kipling put in them nearly everything he knew or "heard or dreamed about the Indian jungle." Other readers have interpreted the work as allegories of the politics & society of the time. The best-known of them are the three stories revolving around the adventures of an abandoned "man cub" Mowgli who is raised by wolves in the Indian Jungle with the help of Baloo the bear & Bagheera the black panther, & then has to fight the tiger Shere Khan. The most famous of the other stories are probably "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", the story of a heroic mongoose, & "Toomai of the Elephants", the tale of a young elephant-handler. "The White Seal", in which the main character seeks a haven for his people where they would be safe from hunters, has been considered a metaphor for Zionism, then in its beginning. As with much of Kipling's work, each of the stories is preceded by a piece of verse, & succeeded by another. $2475. 1st Edition. Illus. by J. Lockwood Kipling with W. H. Drake & P. Frenzeny.
