        Partial working manuscript from Muirís ìThe Mountains of California,î full page handwritten by Muir in ink and pencil ñ parts of two chapters ñ over 150 words in Muirís hand!

      Autograph Manuscript from Muirís working manuscript of ìThe Mountains of California,î 1p, 8.5î x 12.25î. Not signed. No date, but the book was published in October 1894. Light spotting. Fine condition. Numbered ì7î by Muir in the upper right, he first darkly pens, in full, ìIn the strictly Alpine forests there is but little of that sublime wind-waving as characteristic of those of the lower zones. The burly Junipers about as thick as they are high some of them eight or ten feet in diameter are.î There are a few differences between the above and his actual final version published in Chapter 10 A Wind-storm in the Forests: ìLittle, however, of this noble tree-waving and tree-music will you see or hear in the strictly alpine portion of the forests. The burly Juniper, whose girth sometimes more than equals its height, is about as rigid as the rocks on which it grows.î Inverting the page, Muir then works on Chapter 9 The Douglas Squirrel, numbering it ì3.î In full, first describing a thrush reacting to his singing and whistling: ìin the air within 8 or 10 feet of my head sustaining himself in the air for a few seconds like a hummingbird- then light on the nearest branch. Never have I ever spoken or played to a more interesting audience no human audiences could be more attentive. My performance had now lasted half an hour or more. & after whistling Over the Water to Charlie Yankee Dood not one listened more patiently attentively than my first Sq[uirrel] but the moment I began Old 100 he screamed his Ind[ian] name Pil[lillooeet] & darted out of sight in ludicrous haste seeming to say Iíll be ___ if you listen as if he would be dód if he would hear so solemn ñ unforest-likeî

        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.

      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.

        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. -
