These were produced for a French edition of the 1870s, where the complete suite comprises 102 plates.

        Climbing and Exploration in the Karakoram-Himalayas.

      London T. Fisher Unwin 1894 - First edition. 8vo., xxviii, 709, [1] adverts, 127pp., 300 illustrations,one folding map of Kashmir, original tan pictorial cloth gilt, light wear to hinges, ownership inscription to half title (dated 1895), an excellent copy. This was the first major attempt to explore the Karakoram. The six-man expedition ascended the Hispar Glacier, then climbed up and down the Biafo and the Baltoro and achieved a height record. A remarkable achievement. Unfortunately most of the photographic plates which were to be used to illustrate the book were lost. This volume is also particularly significant for Conway's narrative of the expedition's sighting of K2 and reference to the mountain by its Indian Atlas letter and number code. This code was subsequently adopted as the standard name for the world's second highest mountain. Neate C103; Yakushi C336. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Original design for an 1894 Christmas card

      (Olton, Warwickshire, England), 1894. Gaskin, Georgie. An original pen-and-ink drawing for a Christmas card designed by Georgie Gaskin for Laurence W. Hodson and his family, together with two early proofs of the card. Hodson, an important collector, philanthropist, and patron of the arts, was a good friend of both William Morris and Georgie and her husband Arthur Gaskin. Dated 1894, the card is illustrated with an elaborate border of roses, reminiscent of the works of the Kelmscott Press, surrounding a nativity scene of three angels looking upon a baby in a manger. A banner beneath the scene reads, "Laurence & Mary Hodson send greeting, Yuletide MDCCCXCIV," below which is an excerpt from the Christmas carol "In Bethlehem That Noble Place." The previous year, this carol appeared in "A Book of Pictured Carols Designed by Members of the Birmingham Art School," for which Gaskin provided the cover design. Both Georgie and Arthur Gaskin studied at the Birmingham School of Art, were strong proponents of the Arts & Crafts movement, and embraced the style and ideas of William Morris. The Gaskins were also well-known for their elegant handmade jewelry; Georgie designed the jewelry, and her pieces often featured elaborate flowering vines, a characteristic that can readily be seen in the border of this Christmas card design. Gaskin's corrections can be seen on the drawing where she reworked the border design. The two proofs show that another round of edits occurred during which Georgie changed the baby's face and excised and replaced the greeting itself. She also changed her signature and initials in the drawing from her maiden name of G.E.C. France to her married name of G.E.C. Gaskin. The back of the card is signed "Design for Xmas - Card - Georgie E. Cave France, Olton, Warwickshire, Nov. 1894." Georgie's name has been scratched out and "Mrs Arthur Gaskin" has been written beside it in another hand. Drawing pasted on thick card, which is roughly trimmed, and one proof shows some stains in the margins; otherwise, the drawing and proofs are in fine condition. (Drawing measures 7 15/16 by 5 15/16 inches; prints are on sheets measuring 12 3/4 by 10 inches, with printed areas of 7 1/4 by 5 3/8 inches).

        Album with unique panoramic photographs of Zanzibar and Madagascar].[Zanzibar, Madagascar, Mayotte, 1900]. Oblong album (25 x 34 cm) with 47 silver gelatin photographic prints, many with handwritten captions in French. The photographs vary in size from 8 x 5.5 cm to 27 x 20.5 cm. The 30 panorama photographs measure 5.5 x 17.5 cm. Brown cloth album made by M. Andouard in Paris, with decorated endpapers.

      - A unique set of views from Zanzibar and Madagascar, taken five years after the French military intervention of 1894/95, also called the Second Madagascar expedition. The unidentified photographer can be seen in three of the photographs, wearing a white coat and white pith sun helmet. This was the French tropical style as used by white colonial troops since 1878, suggesting his involvement in the French colonial army. His travel partner is occasionally shown as well. Their visit took place during the final years of Tippu Tip's (1837-1905) notorious slave trading activities in Zanzibar.The photo album opens with a portrait of a young Sakalavan woman in a beautiful dress. Three other photographs show other native women as well, including one family with a baby. The majority of the photographs are panoramic views, showing villages, harbours, coasts and landscapes, the first dated 28 November 1900. The only full-page photograph in the album shows an Arab caravan marching along the beach. Rare are the few photographs taken in Mayotte, giving some highly uncommon scenes of the island nation's pre-development era. Binding somewhat scratched, spine slightly worn. The front endpaper clipped. Only a few photographs slightly faded: in very good condition.

        The Eccentrics by Percy Ross, Author of 'A Comedy without Laughters,' 'A Misguidit Lassie,' 'A Professor of Alchemy', etc.

      - London, Digby, Long & Co., [1894]. Three volumes, 8vo. Original blue cloth, spines lettered in gilt, covers blocked in blind; pp. [iv], 225, [3, blank], 8 (advertisements, dated October, 1894); [iv], 215, (8, advertisements); [iv], 225, [3, blank], (8, advertisements); apart from light rubbing to extremities and the occasional spotting to text a very good copy. Extremely rare first edition and a completely overlooked Victorian triple-decker novel by a woman, published under a male pseudonym. The Eccentrics is fortunate in that the title describes not only the main characters of the novel, but also the setting, prose and probably the author, though little public knowledge is available regarding her. In a wonderfully and needlessly dramatic fashion, the story is a classic tale woven of family intrigue, fainting ladies and dark inheritances. Perhaps a mark of a canny eye for satire, or perhaps just a mark of a severe talent deficit - regardless, the prose is as amusing as it is oddly gripping. "Let me pass!" cried Bertha, "I am going to the ballroom!" "Bertha, my dear girl," Renà e put her white hand with soft magnetic touch upon Betty's arm, - "tell me." "I worship him," Betty whispered hoarsely, looking directly into Renà e's grey mesmeric eyes. Typical of novels contemporary to it, the main topic of discussion throughout the volumes is the possibility of marriage for the female protagonists, and how to attract the attentions of the men they desire. The men, however, spend their time threatening to engage in civilised fisticuffs, and glowering at each other, before swooping in to save the heroines from certain death when the hour is most bleak. Perhaps not the most politically correct offering on the market, but a compelling and rare one. This novel is indeed very aesthetic movement, with Moorish lamps burning in open doorways and Renà e sheltering her agitated face with an ibis fan. Subtexts might be discovered by the reader of the book, which towards the end and after a marriage hints that 'when people talk of Mordant's marriage, the ladies bewail his alliance with so masculine a woman, who answers the description of his comrade more than of his wife. The men blame him severly, on the other hand, for his reckless exposing of the woman he pretends to love to so many hardships, and the way in which he denies her luxuries of her staion in the county'.

        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 brown diagonal-ribbed 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-back at stub as issued. Bookplate of Alpheus Fuller Williams (1874-1953), noted American-born South African mining engineer, to front pastedowns. Headcaps and tips refurbished, faint marking to vol. 2 spine, a few other trivial marks to sides, light bumping to board-edges, very occasional mild foxing. A very good copy. First edition in English of this "excellent work of exploration and sport … African adventure at its finest" (Czech), noted for describing 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 visiting 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 was first published in a two-volume German edition between 1891 and 1892. This English translation is also encountered in blue 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.

There is one double-page and two single-page chromolithographs to illustrate this poem "about an Indian Brave." There are sepia drawings on all text pages. The condition of this book is incredible. The only flaws that keep this book from being graded Mint, As New are a light pencil inscription on the inside of the front cover, reading "Merry Christmas, to Calvin from, Grama, 1894" and an area on the double-page illustration where the image stuck together and lifted a little bit of the paper.

        Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám, the Astronomer Poet of Persia. Rendered into English Verse by Edward Fitzgerald. With an accompaniment of drawings by Elihu Vedder.

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin at the Riverside Press, 1894. 8vo., [59] photo-lithographed plates (including frontis, title and dedication plates), followed by 61 pp. of text. all on folded pages. Elaborately gilt-stamped brown cloth, gilt title to backstrip, floral endpapers also by Vedder, top-edge gilt. Binding slightly rubbed at edges, minor fraying at corners, internally bright; very good. Gift inscription in ink on recto of frontis, “To Father from George, Annie and Florence. Christmas 1902.” Sweet poem written in contemporary manuscript hand by John W. Chadwick slipped in. This edition first published in 1884. The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám is said to be one of the ten best known poems in the world, and probably the most popular piece of Middle Eastern literature in the Western World. There are hundreds of editions published from Fitzgerald’s various translations alone. American symbolist artist Elihu Vedder (1836-1923) is best known for his illustrations of the Rubáiyát. Vedder met a number of Pre-Raphaelite painters while visiting London in 1876, and attended an exhibition of William Blake’s work at the Burlington Club. Blake’s influence can be seen in Vedder’s idealized human forms. He is also known for his mural work in Collis P. Huntington’s mansion, the Walker Art Gallery at Bowdoin College, and the Library of Congress. Vedder’s illustrations for the Rubáiyát were some of the earliest examples of Art Nouveau in America. This first Houghton Mifflin edition was so popular it sold out in just six days. (See Stillman, and ANB).

He is to this day the youngest person to hold the rank of brigadier general in the U.S.Army and the only general too young to vote for the president who appointed him (or anybody else, for that matter.)
