Jane Austen
George Allen, Ruskin House. See pictures. Leather is soft and subtle. I'll nitpick. Spine has slight discoloration and some tiny cracks in the compartments, with a rub on the top spine rib. Bottom edges have a little wear. Front joint has a little color loss along the joint. Front board has a 2 cm scrape at top edge, and a 1 cm scrape near bottom of fore-edge, both surface level only. Slight toning to un-gilded fore-edge and bottom-edge. Leather turn-ins have ghosted onto the facing endpapers (perhaps a leather conditioner that was used caused this). Miraculously, no bookseller notes on the blank unpaginated pages. The illustration index has several pencil "x" marks; I erased them but still faintly visible. I checked the illustrations with an "x", and they are present, so the writer must have been noting their favorites. Occasional very small dot (singular) on pages. Pencil binder note "26" on back of colophon (rear of text). Pages 107-115 have small yellow dot at top of fore-edge margin (no text touched). The iconic first Hugh Thomson illustrated edition of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. This copy bound wonderfully, with the important Peacock cloth binding bound-in at the rear. Bookplates whithin (loose, not glued down) of Mrs. Thomas Elliott Donnelley; Thomas E. Donnelley was the early 20th century President of R.R. Donnelley and Sons, a well-known publisher.

Kipling, Rudyard
London: Macmillan & Co, 1894. Kipling, John Lockwood. Hard Cover. First Edition. Near Fine. Two volumes. First editions, first printings. The Jungle Book (1894) is illustrated by John Lockwood Kipling, William Henry Drake, and Paul Frenzeny. The Second Jungle Book (1895) is illustrated by John Lockwood Kipling. Both volumes bound in the original publisher's navy cloth, spines lettered in gilt, pictorial jungle images based on artwork by the author's father John Lockwood Kipling stamped to the front boards in gilt, all edges gilt, green coated endpapers. Both volumes near fine with some light rubbing to spine ends, faint scattered foxing to some of the margins, bookplates to front pastedowns, else very clean. Overall, an excellent set with bright gilt designs. The Jungle Books are collections of short stories and verses, the most famous of which relate to the feral child protagonist Mowgli, a "man cub." While they can be read independently of each other, each chapter serves as a fable using animal figures to provide a moral lesson. In each volume, the short stories are both preceded and followed by poems or songs, including the notable "Mowgli's Song" and "The Law of the Jungle." The Jungle Books, based on the author's childhood and later work experience in British India, are indicative of Western Orientalist ideology at the turn of the 20th century, which is somewhat softened by Kipling's fondness for his former home. Both Jungle Books are illustrated by the author's father, John Lockwood Kipling, who was a practicing illustrator and art professor in Bombay. [Attributes: Fi … [Click Below for Full Description]

THE STONE DRAGON & OTHER TRAGICAL ROMANCES By Robert Murray Gilchrist Publication Details Methuen & Co., London, 1894. Original blindstamped cloth with gilt spine titles. 1st edn sheets in later publisher issue binding, with rear catalogue dated 1902. 208pp + 40pp rear catalogue, top edge trimmed. A collection of decadent horror. The book sold poorly in 1894. The publisher waited until 1902 to bind unsold copies of this first edition up in this later binding. Note: Donated to Sheffield City Library by Basil Doncaster of Cartledge Hall in Holmesfield, which was formerly Robert Murray Gilchrist's family home. It is therefore an intriguing association copy. Was the book originally owned by the author? Cartledge Hall was owned by the Gilchrist family from 1892 until 1947. My guess is that the new owners donated books they found in the house to the local library. I recall handling a copy of the pictorial binding - signed by the author to Richard La Gallienne - and would not be surprised if Gilchrist gave away his own copies of the first issue to friends and associates, retaining simply a copy of this later 1902 issue. I suspect that this book was his own personal author's copy, and that it stayed in the house after his death in 1917, until it was disposed of by the Doncasters ten years after they bought the place. Condition The book is in good condition. The covers are tough and durable but have light uniform soiling. The spine ends are a little frayed and there is some obvious visual splitting to the spine edges at the head. The corners are not nicked. There is an ink inscripti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Masson, Frederic
London: William Heinemann, 1894. First edition. Bound by Bayntun in full blue crushed levant morocco, pink silk-moire end papers, a lovely minature portrait of Empress Josephine on the front cover. A Fine copy, virtually without flaw, housed in a custom blue slipcase. Extra-illustrated with a series of 31 plates, ten of which are in color. An ardent Bonapartist and important French historian, Masson used his work to explore the interior emotional life of Napoleon the man; indeed, he was committed to showing that Napoleon, far from being a god, was made greater in history because of his humanity, and his evolving strengths and weaknesses. Per his introduction, he explains that the inspiration for the present work came from an article in the Chronicle, in which "an anonymous correspondent asked the questions: 'With what women is Napoleon known to have had temporary relations as a young man, as Consul, and finally as Emperor? Had he an absorbing passion for any one woman? And if so, for whom?" What follows is an account of the female figures who shaped Napoleon from his youth to his death through a series of amorous adventures. "Napoleon was twice married, cucholded numerous times, frequent lover of opera singers and actresses, step-father to two children, father to his heir, the Duke of Reichstadt, and the father of at least two illegitimate children. This work masterfully brings Napoleon's often tumultous relationships with the women in his life with full colour and detail" (Pickin). A fascinating romance, beautifully illustrated. Fine. Fine.

Louis-Ferdinand CELINE né DESTOUCHES (1894 - 1961), écrivain français Lettre autographe signée « F Céline » à l'éditeur Jean-Gabriel Daragnès. (Danemark 1948) ; 2 pages in-folio. Belle lettre de Céline dans son exil forcé qui peste contre les nouveaux dirigeants des éditions Denoël, éditions reprises après l'assassinat de Robert Denoël en 1945 à la libération, qui pense-t-il essayent de lui jouer un mauvais tour pour la prochaine sortie de « Féérie pour une autre fois » écrit au Danemark. Le livre sort finalement à son retour en France aux éditions Gallimard le 27 juin 1952, Gaston Gallimard ayant fait des pieds et des mains pour récupérer Céline : « Ça y est ! le vice triomphe ! Larron je suis ! voiliers innocents ! Elle va me retirer. Tout poil ! Jamais je toucherai un sol ! Mille bonnes raisons ! (...) Je ne vois qu'un seul point ultime qui peut être le faire raquer.

Jane Austen
George Allen, Ruskin House. See pictures. Leather is soft and subtle. I'll nitpick. Spine has slight discoloration and some tiny cracks in the compartments, with a rub on the top spine rib. Bottom edges have a little wear. Front joint has a little color loss along the joint. Front board has a 2 cm scrape at top edge, and a 1 cm scrape near bottom of fore-edge, both surface level only. Slight toning to un-gilded fore-edge and bottom-edge. Leather turn-ins have ghosted onto the facing endpapers (perhaps a leather conditioner that was used caused this). Miraculously, no bookseller notes on the blank unpaginated pages. The illustration index has several pencil "x" marks; I erased them but still faintly visible. I checked the illustrations with an "x", and they are present, so the writer must have been noting their favorites. Occasional very small dot (singular) on pages. Pencil binder note "26" on back of colophon (rear of text). Pages 107-115 have small yellow dot at top of fore-edge margin (no text touched). The iconic first Hugh Thomson illustrated edition of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. This copy bound wonderfully, with the important Peacock cloth binding bound-in at the rear. Bookplates whithin (loose, not glued down) of Mrs. Thomas Elliott Donnelley; Thomas E. Donnelley was the early 20th century President of R.R. Donnelley and Sons, a well-known publisher.

BUDGE, E. A. Wallis.
The British Museum 1894 and 1895, London. Hardcover. Two Volumes. Text volume: Folio (20.5 inches x 15.5 inches), clvi + 378 pp. original half green morocco with black pebbled cloth boards, raised bands, top edge gilt, b&w in-text illustrations throughout, bibliography. Plate volume: Elephant Folio (13 inches x 11 inches), viii + 37 double-page color plates mounted on cloth hinges, original half black leather with black pebbled cloth boards. The first edition of the Facsimile Plate volume was published as a stand-alone work in 1890 but the demand for a text version to accompany it resulted in the production of these two volumes, with the 1894 Plate volume produced to accompany the 1895 First Edition of the Text volume. The plate volume, reproduces in magnificent fold-out facsimiles, "The Papyrus of Ani," which is perhaps the most superbly illustrated of the surviving copies of the "Book of the Dead". "The Papyrus of Ani," is said to have been found at Thebes and is thought to date from the XVIIIth Dynasty, about 1400BC. It was obtained (apparently by theft) for the British Museum in 1888 by Wallis Budge. The original is in scroll form - about 76 feet in length. It is here reproduced in 37 segments, each on a double-page spread of approx. 20 x 48 inches. The text volume is a thick heavy quarto, and comprises a lengthy Introduction detailing the history and context of the Book of the Dead and the Papyrus of Ani, a table of chapters, and a typeset version of the hieroglyphic text, with interlinear transliteration and complete English translation.

Un volume in-12 (190x123 mm), vi-335 pages et 3 planches Reliure abîmée avec des manques et mors fendus Quelques rousseurs Édition originale Garrison-Morton [643 : "Marey . was a pioneer in the use of serial pictures as a method of studying the mechanics of locomotion."], En français dans le texte [318 : Ce qui importe à Marey c’est d’avantage l’analyse du mouvement en tant qu’objet d’étude scientifique, et non sa synthèse à des fins commerciales ou spectaculaires : « Supposons qu’une bande pelliculaire portant des images positives défile au foyer d’un objectif et que cette bande soit fortement éclairée par derrière, les images serraient projetées sur un écran» (Le Mouvement). Il réalise ainsi la projection de ses films en 1893, mais il refusera toujours d’adopter la perforation latérale comme système d’entraînement. En 1895, le premier brevet de Louis Lumière rendra indirectement hommage au pionnier, en utilisant jusqu’au vocable que Marey avait forgé; ce brevet concerne en effet «un appareil servant à l’obtention et à la vision des épreuves chronophotographiques» (brevet du 13 février 1895). De fait, «les premiers films de l’histoire du cinéma sont ceux que Marey réalise à partir de 1888, avant même ceux d’Edison» (Michel Frizot). Sans qu’il y paraisse, Marey a transfiguré le réel le plus immédiat.

Scarce, no other examples traced on OCLC or KVK. "By an odd quirk of history the first foreign translation of Das Kapital to appear was the Russian, which Petersburgers found in their bookshops early in April 1872. Giving his imprimatur, the censor, one Skuratov, had written, 'few people in Russia will read it, and still fewer will understand it.' He was wrong; the edition of three thousand sold out quickly; and in 1880 Marx was writing to his friend F. A.
