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. Physical Attributes - Measures 18 x 12 x 4 cm. Full calf fine-binding.

A great chance to own a rare edition of Austen's classic work. Synopsis Pride and Prejudice, published in 1813, is the most famous of Jane Austen's works and one of the first "romantic comedies" in the history of the novel. It revolves around Mr.and Mrs.Bennet's five daughters who are all unmarried, when a rich, amiable young man moves into the neighbourhood. Mrs. Bennet hopes to secure him as a husband for her beautiful, eldest daughter, Miss Jane Bennet. However, events conspire to create a number of obstacles and misunderstandings that separate them. ---------- About the Author---------- Jane Austen (1775-1817) was an English novelist whose realism, biting social commentary and masterful use of free indirect speech, burlesque and irony have earned her a place as one of the most widely read and best-loved writers in British literature.

Bram Stoker and many others
London: some wear and staining to cover, inside the pages are good to very good, this is NOT a former library copy, the hinges are a little creaky but holding. See all 12 photos. A couple years before Bram Stoker's novel Dracula was published (in 1897) he had this dark tale published in Pall Mall Magazine during it's maiden year. This is the bound volume of issues from November 1893 to April 1894. Stoker's story; "The Man From Shorrox" is nicely illustrated. If you look at the heading illustration at the start of his story you'll see the human skull so you know you're in Bram's hands. This story has some hints and glimmers of what he'd soon write in his novel Dracula. The meeting of the dead and the living. This bound volume is full of other material and some quite interesting but the main thing is it has very nicely preserved the story by Stoker. It may seem a high price but if you are a serious Bram Stoker collector it can't be too painful, not like sucking blood out of you or anything. I just noticed a signed copy of a 1st of Dracula priced $75,000 so is 1% of that for a writing that came earlier, well, you be the judge. It is a heavy volume so with the eBay cut not cheap to mail to England but that is an option for the extra postage. I am offering this exclusively to U.S. and U.K. buyers and addressees.

Jane Austen
George Allen, UK. 1st Edition 1894. Very rare vairent with much bigger boards (1cm higher) than the normal version more commonly seen. Page edges are un-evenly cut, different paper quality to the normal edition and Gilt to top edge. I belive the publisher may have used the limited edition pages and bound up this book as a trial or to simply use them up. White endpapers instead of the normal black as in the delux version. Dated 1894 with name. No mention of this binding in the bibliography. The famous "Peacock edition" of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice". Often regarded as the most beautifully produced of Jane Austen's classic works . Over 101 illustrations by the formost illustrator of the time Hugh Thomson. Book is very good++ and very bright. In lovely condition. Contents very good. Text block tight. Ligt foxing to a few pages. Very un-common as nice as this. More images can be taken upon request.

Swinburne, Algernon Charles
London: Chatto & Windus, 1894. First Edition. Hardcover. Signed Presentation Copy. 8vo. In original dark blue cloth. An extraordinary association copy, inscribed "Mary C. J. Leith from her affectionate cousin A.C. Swinburne Nov. 8, 1894." Mary Gordon, later Mrs. Leith, was Swinburne's first cousin and by far the most important woman in his life apart from his mother. Herself a poet and novelist, Mary Gordon's intimacy began in childhood when they lived in neighboring houses on the Isle of Wight. Later their relationship became literary, Swinburne providing the poems that appear in Gordon's anonymously issued "The Children of the Chapel" in 1864, and Gordon appearing as Clara in Swinburne's own novel, "A Year's Letters," first serialized in The Tatler in 1877. It was published in book form in 1905 as "Love's Cross-Currents." In her memoir, Gordon wrote that Swinburne [was] to me as an elder brother, a loved and sympathetic playmate, and in later years a loyal and affectionate friend. Although there is no direct evidence, recent scholarship has identified Gordon as most likely Swinburne's sole romantic attachment, which ended in traumatic rejection. This book was probably inscribed after Gordon visited Swinburne and Watts-Dunton at The Pines in the fall of 1894. In 1899, Swinburne dedicated his last major poetic work, "Rosamund, Queen of the Lombards," to Mrs. Disney Leither. Swinburne is better known for his lyric poetry, but he was also a prolific and well regarded literary critic. The collection of some of his critcal writings include essays on Sir Walter Scott, Wilkie Col … [Click Below for Full Description]

Stunning original printed color lithographed poster by Will H. Bradley for The Chapbook, 1894. This famous poster was printed in 1894 by Stone and Kimball, famed Chicago publisher. Will H. Bradley 1868-11962), born in Boston, is widely considered one of the greatest American graphic artist and illustrator, known for his Art Nouveau stylized poster-like interpretations of figures.

YEATS, W. B.)
London: Elkin Mathews and John Lane, 1894. Small octavo. Original brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Housed in a custom red cloth folding chemise within red quarter morocco slipcase, spine lettered in gilt, red cloth sides. Slight marking to rear cover, first gathering standing slightly proud, else a very good copy. First edition, presentation copy, with a lengthy inscription by Yeats (as both editor and contributor) to his close friend and literary collaborator Lady Augusta Gregory (1852-1932) on the front free endpaper, opposite her bookplate: "This book was the last act of the Rhymers Club - no there was a dinner afterwards - we got many applications from people, who wanted to be members one from a deaf & dumb man. I think it was the fear of another book brought the club to an end. The members who wrote the worst wanted another book greatly. WBY 1901". Lady Augusta Gregory was the chatelaine of Coole Park, cofounder of the Abbey Theatre, key figure in the Irish Literary Revival, and the mother of Major Robert Gregory (about whose death in 1918 Yeats wrote one of his most quoted short poems, "An Irish Airman Foresees his Death"). Lady Gregory first met Yeats in 1896, and they were soon engaged in joint folktale-collecting tours in the summer of 1897 and beyond (which would be worked into the enlarged edition of Celtic Twilight, 1902). Foster well describes the nature and significance of Yeats and Gregory's friendship: "She brought him far more than the background of 'order and labour' which he craved, and against which much of his finest work would be written.

[New York City Suffrage League]
[New York]: John J. O'Brien & Son Printers, 1894. First edition. Original pamphlet promoting the Constitutional Amendment Campaign events hosted by the New York City Woman Suffrage League. 4 pages including self-wraps. Slight chipping to second page, and scattered light foxing at fold and margins. Overall an exceptional copy of this rare pamphlet. OCLC reports no institutionally held copies, and the Programme does not appear in the modern auction record. 1893-1894 proved to be critical years for the New York suffragists. During that time "New York State held a convention to revise its Constitution...women suffragists had lobbied for a place at this Convention in order to support an amendment that would grant women in New York the right to vote. At the request of suffragists, both Governor Hill and Governor Flower recommended that women be allowed to sit as delegates on the Constitutional Convention. On multiple occasions, prominent New York suffragists such as Susan B. Anthony and Mary Seymour Howell addressed the state legislature to promote the right of women to serve as constitutional delegates. The legislature's final bill reflected the efforts of these suffragists" (Harper-Husted). This program documents the last push for women delegates' presence at the summer Convention. On February 26-27, 1894 the Woman Suffrage League met at Chickering Hall to hear addresses by major leaders. While the Monday events featured a letter by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and a talks by Mary Seymour Howell and Rev. Anna Shaw, the Tuesday events were concluded with addresses by Susan B. Anthony … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Elkin Mathews & John Lane, 1894. Hardcover. Scarce. One of 650 copies. Presentation copy from the publisher John Lane, inscribed in pencil to the Irish poet and novelist Katharine Tynan Hinkson: "Mrs. Hinkson with the publisher's regards." Presentation and association copies of the two books of the Rhymers' Club are extremely uncommon. The Rhymers' Club, founded in 1890 by the young William Butler Yeats and Ernest Rhys, was a group of London-based poets, Originally it was not much more than a dining club, meeting in pubs, Those who took part included Ernest Dowson, Lionel Johnson, Francis Thompson, Richard Le Gallienne, John Gray, John Davidson, Edwin J. Ellis, Victor Plarr, Selwyn Image, Lord Alfred Douglas, Arthur Cecil Hillier, John Todhunter, G.A. Greene, Arthur Symons, Ernest Radford, and Thomas William Rolleston. Oscar Wilde attended some meetings that were held in private homes. The group as a whole matched quite closely Yeats' retrospective idea of 'the tragic generation', destined for failure and in many cases early death. Along with the social element of the Rhymers' Club, they published two volumes of verse. The first, titled The Book of the Rhymers' Club was published by Elkin Mathews in 1892. The Second Book of the Rhymers' Club, with five poems by Yeats, appeared two years later in 1894, published by the recently merged Elkin Mathews and John Lane. They had print runs of 450 and 650 respectively. By the time Arthur Ransome wrote his Bohemia in London in 1907, the group had long passed into legend." Bound in original brown cloth with gilt title to spine … [Click Below for Full Description]

Shannon, Charles
n.p. [1894]. A lovely lithograph printed in green ink by Charles Hazelwood Shannon. It is an image of three bending nude female figures and appeared in #2 of "The Dial." Shannon and Ricketts were artistic and personal partners for more than fifty years. They designed and illustrated books, founded "The Dial" magazine and Vale Press, and were key figures in the London cultural world. The 4 x 5.5 inch print is on a sheet of 11 x 14 inch paper. There are a few small creases and light brown spots along the paper margins, not affecting the illustration. Said to be from the collections of T. Sturge Moore and his daughter Henrietta but there is no evidence of provenance. Very good condition. ORIG/092413. Very Good.

Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner & Co. 1894 Half title, limitation leaf, front., illus. title, & plates signed LH. Finely bound by Johanna Birkenruth in full green crushed morocco, dec. in gilt with triple-ruled borders, front board with repeated leaf pattern in a gilt outline with dot surround, lettered in gilt; sl. fading to the spine otherwise a very attractive binding. Bookplate of the English designer and noted collector Pickford Waller.This is copy number 21 of 50 large paper copies. A rare example of a binding by Johanna Birkenruth who was a member of the Chiswick Art Guild. Tidcombe, in Women Bookbinders 1880-1920, notes that Birkenruth was known for her work in moulded leather together with her use of leather onlays and, occasionally, elaborate jewelled bindings. Although Birkenruth exhibited at Frank Karslake's 1897 'Exhibition of Artistic Bookbinding by Women' (Karslake was instrumental in the formation of the Guild of Women Binders), she never in fact became a member of the Guild. This fine example of her work is stamped with her name to the upper corner of the first blank leaf.

A striking set of plates of ornamental tiles collected by the Afghan Boundary Commission, a joint Anglo-Russian project, active between 1884 and 1886, to set Afghanistan's northern border. A team travelled through Herat, Bala Murghab, Mazar-i-Sharif and then over the Hindu Kush; during the course of their journey the team picked up a number of artefacts including textiles, pottery, and coins, of which many were donated to museums in England including the British Museum and V & A. Charles Yate, who travelled with the commission, described several buildings in Herat, which bore traces of their "once fine tile or mosaic work of beautiful and artistic designs. when new they must have been marvellously handsome" (Yate, p. 30-32). These plates give examples of some of the most attractive tile designs that the commission came across in Northern Afghanistan. William Griggs was a dedicated promoter of South Asia art and, in 1884, launched the lavishly illustrated Journal of Indian Art and Industry, which featured contributions from William Morris, John R … [Click Below for Full Description]

Socialist and poet, feminist and mystic, he was openly homosexual and an early advocate of gay rights. He influenced a generation of socialists and writers (especially E. M. Forester). His views on the gay life were revolutionary in their time and are still relevant today. First given as a lecture, Homogenic Love was published in 1895, the year of the Oscar Wilde trials. Edward Carpenter was a pioneer of gay liberation in the 20th century. He expressed his homosexuality freely in a society where, following the Oscar Wilde trials in 1895, homosexuality was heavily condemned and considered a crime. Carpenter also successfully published a book on the topic of homosexuality during these times. Summary: Edward Carpenter was born in 1844 in Brighton, England. … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

UZBEKISTAN) VVEDENSKII, I.
?Moscow: , 1894-7. Original photograph (224 x 165 mm) on printed card mount (c.305 x 204 mm) with decorative border, title on mounted printed slip and in Arabic manuscript beneath, additionally captioned verso; now window-mounted, framed in handmade dark wood frame with gilt slip, UV resistant perspex. Mount slightly browned, label chipped, but the photograph retaining excellent contrast, very good. This wonderfully lively view, numbered 74 in VVedenskii's series of Samarkand scenes, shows crowds gathering before the Ulugh Beg Madrasah, food-sellers under improvised canopies thronged by celebrants in picturesque bekasab chapans, with part of the facade of the Tilya Kori Madrasah visible in the background. VVedensky "worked in Samarkand in the 1890s. His activities reached a peak between 1894 and 1897… The Turkestan Region… published in St Petersburg in 1913, ascribed Vvedensky's signed photographs to N. Petrovsky, an educationalist and amateur photographer who worked in Samarkand before 1904. His contemporaries said he was unsurpassed in photography. However, the photographs in Russia included in this album doubtless belong to Vvedensky, whose name undeservedly went into oblivion" (Vitaly Naumkin, Samarkand: Caught in Time, Great Photographic Archives, 1992, p. 9). Contemporary commercial presentation of this highly evocative image of the famous public gathering place which, following his visit in 1888, Lord Curzon called "the noblest square in the world".

Hamsun, Knut (d. i. Knud Pedersen), Schriftsteller und Nobelpreisträger (1859-1952).
An einen Journalisten in Deutschland: "[...] Mein hertzlichsten Dank für Ihren freundlichen Brief. Als ich leider kein Deutsch kann, und ein anderer mich helfen muss diesen Paar Worte zusammenzukriegen, habe ich Ihren Brief an meinen Verleger Herrn Albert Langen in München gesandt und ihm gebeten es zu beantworten; er kennt mich schon seit Jahren. Entschuldigen Sie bitte diese kurtze Mitteilung und nehmen Sie noch einmal mein hertzlicher Dank für Ihre grosse Freundlichkeit entgegen [...]" - Langen hatte bereits 1894 in Paris durch Willy Gretor den Roman "Mysterien" von Knut Hamsun (in der Übersetzung von Marie von Borch) kennengelernt und gründete umgehend einen Verlag, um das Buch herauszubringen. So erschien 1894 Hamsuns "Mysterien" als erster Titel im Buch & Kunst-Verlag von Albert Langen, Paris und wurde sehr selbstbewusst im "Börsenblatt" angezeigt. - Gering fleckig. - Beiliegend das Stahlstichporträt des jungen Dichters von Johann Lindner (1839-1906) in München, dat. 1899, mit Faksimileunterschrift. - Briefe des Nobelpreisträgers in deutscher Sprache sind äußerst selten.
