        TRILBY (1894 Three-Decker 1st Edition)

      London: Osgood, McIlvaine, 1894. Du Maurier, George. TRILBY. London: Osgood, McIlvaine, 1894. First Edition. Three volumes in the original publisher's buff-colored cloth, blocked and lettered in blue. A NEAR FINE copy, ownership inscription dated 1894 on the front paste-down of each of the three volumes, some scattered foxing and intermittent very light staining, an inevitable touch of soil here and there, spine a tiny bit darkened on Vols. 1 & 2, else an exceptionally fresh set. All three volumes show virtually no wear to the boards and all still have intact inner hinges, the latter case being particularly unusual given the weight of these books as they were printed on heavier, better quality art paper. This is the true first edition of Du Maurier's masterpiece (published a year prior to the better known first illustrated edition), one of the most wildly popular novels of the 1890s. There were Trilby parties where extracts of the book were read aloud; there were Trilby fashions inspired by "la vie bohème." A town in Florida even changed its name to Trilby. Furthermore, Trilby forever altered the public perception of hypnotism with its strikingly original creation of Svengali, one of the most memorable Victorian characters of all time (who also served as the role model for Gaston Leroux's Phantom of the Opera, written fifteen years later). Michael Sadleir, Professor Robert Lee Wolff and David Magee all universally proclaimed Trilby, in fine state, to be a substantial rarity. In Sadleir's case, he points out (Sadleir 1675) that this rarity is not just due to the light color and perishable nature of the publisher's cloth, but also to the fact that much of the first edition was overprinted with misleading later edition stamps in an attempt to imply greater sales, a not uncommon Victorian publisher's practice. Although the initial printing may have been as many as 1,000 copies, few survive today in original condition. We had an equally superior copy in 1994, in Lakin & Marley's Catalogue One, but this is the first really nice copy we've handled since then. Sadleir 1675, Wolff 1952. First Edition. Near Fine.

Bound in half paper vellum with gilt lettering and an armorial decoration. This is a comprehensive and informative historical account of Freemasonry. Thistext was a source for Robert Freke Gould's work, the Concise History of Freemasonry, considered a standard for Masonic research. Freemasonry is a fraternal organisation that arose from obscure origins in the late 16th to early 17th century. Freemasonry now exists in various forms all over the world, with a membership estimated at around 5 million. The various forms all share moral and metaphysical ideals, which include, in most cases, a constitutional declaration of belief in a Supreme Being. The fraternity is administratively organised into Grand Lodges, each of which governs its own jurisdiction, which consists of subordinate, or constituent, Lodges. Grand Lodges recognise each other through a process of landmarks and regularity. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is mild wear to the extremities, including mild bumping and rubbing, with some marks to the boards. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright. Overall the condition is very good..

        BAYOU FOLK

      Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin and Company, 1894.. [4],313,[3]pp. Octavo. Gilt green cloth. Cloth a bit sunned at edges, with a few small rubs and four pencil-erasure tip size pale splashmarks, otherwise a very good, bright copy. First edition of Chopin's second book, preceded by a rare wrapperbound novel published in St. Louis four years previous, as well as serial contributions to the TWO TALES series of stories collected herein. An author's presentation copy, inscribed within days of publication: "Miss Mabel Holden from her sincere friend Kate Chopin March 26 1894." The book was announced for publication on 24 March in PW. A superb example of American regionalism at its best, by the writer best known for her early American feminist classic, THE AWAKENING (1899). Perhaps because of her early death in 1904 of a brain hemorrhage, Chopin presentation copies are not at all common. WRIGHT III:1038. BAL 3244.

        OUR MANIFOLD NATURE

      London:: William Heinemann,. 1894.. 8vo. 7-3/4" x 5-1/8". 1st book edition (NCBEL III, 1054; Wolff 2670). Not in Sadleir. INSCRIBED PRESENTATION copy, marked by the author as "Advanced Copy". viii, [2], 271, [5], 20 pp. March 1894 publisher catalogue last 20 pages.. Original publisher's olive-green cloth binding with gilt stamping.. Slight cock, with modest shelfwear. Bookstore stamp to bottom of. front paste-down. Light foxing. Rear hinge starting. A VG copy.. Born Frances Elizabeth Bellenden Clarke, the author, at the young age of 16, married a widowed army surgeion, David Chambers McFall, who was already the father to two sons: Chambers Haldane Cooke McFall and Albert William Crawford McFall. With 20+ years age difference between her & her husband, over the ensuing years of marriage, the marital relationship between the two grew apart, with Grand beginning to express her feminist "New Woman" philosophy through the medium of print, publishing her first novel, Ideala, in 1888. Emboldened by her modicum of literary success, two years later Grand divorced her husband, and not too long thereafter assumed the nom-de-plum that we know today, Sarah Grand, under which she wrote her most famous novel, the strongly feminist The Heavenly Twins [1893]. This work of hers here offered is a collection of stories, which Grand, in her preface, terms an "experiment", by which she means varying from the constraining societal conventions on fiction, and which the magazines of the day imposed changes in order to be published. By 1894, riding the phenomenal success of Heavenly Twins, Grand commanded the literary gravitas with Heinemann to see these stories republished, where they "now appear for the first time unmutilated as well as carefully revised." This copy inscribed by Grand on the half-title page: "To My dear old Boy Chambers / from Sarah Grand [underscore] / 12th March 1894" Toward the bottom of the page, under the printed title, Grand has written: "Advanced Copy". While the exact identity of the "Chambers" noted in the inscription is now lost to antiquity, we would not deem beyond probability the presentation of this 'Advanced Copy', wherein the new name Sarah Grand is emphasized, to be her either to her son by marriage, Chambers Haldane Cooke McFall [whom is refered to by the ODNB as 'Haldane'], or perhaps to her estranged former husband, David Chambers McFall. However, this, we again note, is speculation on our part, and the true identity of this individual remains a question mark. . Photographic frontispiece.

There are just a couple of spots of foxing to the first and last couple of pages otherwise it is a very clean and bright copy of the scarce first Thomson edition in publishers variant binding of plain green cloth with a printed paper label.

This plain binding was issued on copies intended for rebinding. The spine label is rubbed and chipped. The edges of the boards are a little bumped and rubbed but generally this is a very good copy of the book with an attractive original drawing and early inscription from Thomson making it a unique and special copy of this hugely popular edition.-------- One of the best, and most popular, illustrated books of the late nineteenth century. Thomson illustrated this work for George Allen publishers before going on to illustrate the other Austen books for Macmillan & Co.

        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

Danach arbeitete er für verschiedene Möbelfabriken, unter anderem in München, Karlsruhe und Berlin. 1892 trat er am Gewerbemuseum in St. Gallen eine Stellung als Lehrer für gewerbliches und ornamentales Entwurfszeichnen an, die er bis 1897/1898 innehatte.
