        The Architectural History of Harrow Church Derived from a Study of the Building

      Wilbee, J. C., Harrow, England 1895 - Contemporary full morocco binding of a dark brown color, and with hubbed spine in six panels. Boards with gilt rules and small gilt decorative motifs, and with small diaper design in blind to the fields. Spine states, in fairly crisp, gilt-stamped letters, "Harrow Church, Gardner." Spine with elaborate and crisp gilt-stamped design. Generally unbumped spine head and tail and with slightly bumped lower corners, The leather binding is exceptionally clean and almost entirely free of scratches, and with minor rubbing along the gutters. The spine is lightly and evenly sunned to a medium brown color. The text block is firmly bound in. 9.25 x 6 inches. With handsome marbled paper pastedowns and FEPs. T.E.G. With xii and 95 numbered pages, including an introduction, the main text, a glossary of technical terms employed, and a postscript. With XL full-page B&W plates plus Plate XLI, a pristine pull-out architectural ground plan of the church, The Church of S. Mary Harrow on the Hill. Also with 15 additional B&W illustrations. We can find no foxing or other blemishes, save for an instance of off-setting. The book is astonishingly clean overall. Front pastedown with the stunning late 19th century armorial bookplate of Harrow School, including the motto "stet fortvna domvs." Near the top of the bookplate is written in a neat ink hand, "E. W. Swan, Term prize for Drawing, 1900' given May 31st, 1900." Hence a presentation copy. Off-setting between p. 72 and the opposite plate, likely due to insertion of a newspaper clipping or similar. Neatly pasted on to a blank rear FEP is a newspaper clipping, "Harrow Church 850 Years Old." Above the clipping in a neat ink hand is, "Times, Jan. 17th 1944." Neatly pasted on to the opposite blank rear FEP is a B&W photo of Harrow Church, doubtless from the same newspaper article. Finally, neatly pasted on to the rear pastedown is a very small -- and somewhat bizarre -- news magazine clipping, "A Railway Victim." The clipping pertains to an interesting gravestone in Harrow-on-the-Hill churchyard regarding a hapless man who was run over and killed by a railway train in 1833, shortly after rail was introduced to Harrow and vicinity. Else a very clean copy. A Very Good copy. Scarce in any condition. An altogether engaging and handsome volume and a pleasure to hold in hand. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Abbas Hilmi II of Egypt.

      [Weißenburg, Burckardts Nachfolger, c. 1895]. - Head-and-shoulders portrait. Stencil-coloured lithograph. 43 x 34 cm. One of the very rare Weißenburg illustrated broadsheets showing oriental motifs. These were published under the fictitious address of Hassan Uwais (Auvès) in Cairo. The present leaf shows the last Khedive of Egypt (ruled 1892-1914); thus it must have been published during under Camille Burckardt's successors, who took over the Weißenburg factory in 1889. - Slight tear to right edge; slight creasing. Edges somewhat browned. All of these prints are very rare; a different print commanded £21,250 at Sotheby's in 2012.

        Archive]: The William Henry Cabell Family Papers

      1895 - An archive of holograph letters, manuscripts, photographs, and related material from the family of William Henry Cabell, Governor of Virginia from 1805 to 1808. The collection contains several letters by outstanding Virginia statesmen. Included are two retained manuscript copies of letters from Virginia governor William Henry Cabell to President Thomas Jefferson, an 1801 letter from J.E.B. Gilmer to U.S. Attorney General William Wirt relating to The College of William & Mary, an 1820 letter to W.H. Cabell from Thomas Jefferson Randolph, an 1821 letter to Cabell from Judge St. George Tucker, and nine other letters to Cabell. Also from this period are contemporary autograph extracts of two 1821 letters from Joseph Carrington Cabell to Thomas Jefferson relating to the founding of the University of Virginia.Among the later letters, spanning the years 1841-1895, is an 1848 letter from John P. Kennedy relating to his biography of William Wirt, and two letters from Fitzhugh Lee to John Grattan Cabell, one about a memorial for General J.E.B. Stuart.Also of importance is a 141-page genealogy of the Cabell family, likely compiled by Edward Carrington Cabell in the latter part of the 19th Century. In total the archive contains 27 Autograph Letters Signed, the manuscript genealogy, five miscellaneous documents, and 19 photographs. The genealogy presents a detailed account of the Cabell family beginning with Dr. William Cabell, who came to Virginia in the early 18th Century. It includes transcribed reminiscences, funeral orations, and related biographical information, along with some tipped-in contemporary newspaper obituaries. Among the photographs are many fine carte-de-visite portraits and silver gelatin prints of Cabell family members.A historically important collection of primary source material documenting one of Virginia's most important families and other equally influential contemporary Virginians. A detailed list is available.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Four page Autograph Letter Signed from D.P. Brown of St. Onge, South Dakota to his cousin James Breckenridge of Stewartsville, Missouri, dated 25 January 1895 on stationery of Adoniram J. Plowman, Attorney at Law of Deadwood. Old folds from mailing, else near fine. Brown relates that he is "about 12 miles from Deadwood & 30 miles from Indian Reservation" and (his idiosyncratic spelling here retained) "I am still alive and am married and living in the Black hills on a Horse Ranch of Judge Plowmans. I got my Rib broken last Saturday was leading a Horse to water and he started to run and I stayed with him to long." He relates that after traveling through Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Colorado, New Mexico, and Kansas, he is: "getting 300 a year and am at no expense but for clothing. Think I shall strike for more money or quit." A relatively interesting cowboy letter. The recipient was likely a member of the prominent Breckenridge family (the letter mentions his family in Kentucky). Plowman was a noted judge in Deadwood. .

        A JOURNEY TO VENUS, THE PRIMEVAL WORLD: ITS WONDERFUL CREATIONS AND GIGANTIC MONSTERS .

      New York: F. Tennyson Neely Publisher, n.d. [1895] - Octavo, pp. [1-2] [1-4] 5-499 [500: blank], two inserted plates with illustrations by Miss Fairfax and Mrs. McAuley from drawings by the author, original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, white endpapers. First edition. A later issue of the first edition with the "Arena" imprint on the spine panel and a cancel title page with Neely's imprint. This novel, the second and last of Pope's projected "Romances of the Planets" series, was first published by Arena Publishing Company in 1895. Arena issued the novel in two forms, in cloth with sixteen inserted plates, and in paper with three inserted plates. Neely acquired the Arena sheets (and some clothbound copies) and reissued them with cancel title pages. Although sixteen was the full compliment of plates for the copies bound in cloth, many of the hardbound copies issued by Arena and reissued by Neely have fewer inserted plates, generally three, but sometimes four or two. This copy has two plates, one used as the frontispiece, the other facing page 120. About 1897 Neely reprinted the novel on cheap pulp paper stock as a 25¢ paperback with two inserted plates. In Pope's sequel to JOURNEY TO MARS . (1894), the protagonist and his Martian princess visit Venus, a younger world comparable to some stage of earth's prehistory.

        Photograph of the Football Team of Indian University of Muskogee, Oklahoma

      1895 - Albumen photograph. Image size 6.75" x 4.75" mounted on stiff card. Corners of the backing board cut away just slightly affecting a couple of corners but not substantially affecting the image, two faintly visible short cracks in the margins, extending into the image a little, overall very good.Shown are eleven players in two rows either standing or kneeling in front of a backdrop of patterned wallpaper. Dressed in jerseys and padded pants, with one player holding the ball, all players are identified in pencil on the verso with their positions: Brady, Walter Lamar, Alex Yargee, John Phillips, John Meagher, Wm. Merrill, W.B. Wilson, Alex Foreland, Ernest McDaniel, Charlie Moore, and Willie McCombs. The *Indian Journal* of April 12, 1894 mentions Yargee had ".spent Saturday and Sunday in Eufaula in company with Prof. Brown." The *Dawes Final Rolls* listing tribal members in 1902 in which the names of Yargee, Phillips, Maegher, and Merrill appear.The Indian University was founded in 1880 by Almon C. Bacone in Tahlequah, Indian Territory. According to the *Encyclopedia of Oklahoma History and Culture*, the school was chartered by the Muscogee-Creek Nation for the purpose of providing a Christian education for American Indians. By 1885, it had been expanded and relocated to Muscogee. Between 1883 and 1895 it graduated 43 students with either bachelor's or master's degrees. It also featured a football team, and played the first Indian Territory football game against Henry Kendall College (later renamed the University of Tulsa). A photograph of the Kendell team exists with the team photographed against the same wallpaper background. It isn't such a large leap to speculate that the portraits were taken at the same time, and mostly likely in commemoration of that first contest. Rare.

        THE BODY-SNATCHER ...

      New York: The Merriam Company,. [1895]. original decorated violet cloth, front and spine panels stamped in dark purple.. Minor rubbing to cloth at spine ends and corner tips, slightly dulled. spine panel, otherwise a bright, nearly fine copy. A nice copy of. this attractive little book. (#147932). First edition. Published as the second volume in Merriam's "Violet Series." "Stevenson was always interested in the supernatural and the uncanny ways in which the human brain can distort reality. His short stories are distinguished by psychological insight and a deft handling of horror. His first 'crawler' (his own pet name for horror stories) was "The Body-Snatcher, " written in 1881 and inspired by the case of Burke and Hare. He shelved the story for three years 'in justifiable disgust, the tale being horrid,' but it eventually appeared in the Christmas number of the Pall Mall Gazette (1884). It was advertised on posters, which were suppressed by the police for being too lurid and shocking. Stevenson turned down his £40 fee because he had such a low opinion of the story. 'I was not able to produce my best,' he claimed, 'and I will be damned if I steal with my eyes open.'" - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural. p. 402. There has been some confusion about the nature of this story, whether it is truly supernatural, Clute and Grant calling it "marginally weird" (Encyclopedia of Fantasy, p. 897), Bleiler omitting it from his Checklist. Critics also have failed to see its literary quality: Barzun and Taylor pan it for "turning suddenly into a ghost story," Curtis C. Smith because the story "lacks logic and is merely gruesome." (Supernatural Fiction Writers, p. 310). A careful reading of the story reveals it to be definitely supernatural, effectively horrific, and artistically interesting. The reappearance of Gray as an intact corpse rings an interesting change on the usual ghost plot: rather than having a corpse appear as a living person, the decapitated and "long- dissected" Gray appears as an intact corpse. What is most shocking about the story is not its grue, but its breezy cynicism. True, Fettes has been punished for his misdeeds, but Macfarlane has prospered and so has their old medical school patron, the "meteorically famous" Mr. K---. And the vengeful hand of supernatural justice issues not from one of the innocent "lambs" but from one of the wrathful "lions." An author does not always make the best critic of his own work. This misunderstood and underrated "crawler" is one of Stevenson's very best. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1535. Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature IV, p. 1701. Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 456. Reginald 15865. Hubin (1994), p. 771. Beinecke 608.

      D. Appleton and Company, New York 1895 - A Fine copy of the book with the spine very slightly toned and a pea-sized rub mark on the coated front end-paper where it looks like an early price was erased. Despite these two very minor flaws, this is a bright, sharp, unread copy of the book and about as fine as one could hope to find it in the absence of the very scarce dust jacket. First printing with yellow top-stain, undamaged type on p. 225 and no mention of this title in four pages of ads at the rear. BAL 4071.The author's realistic portrayal of a young soldier's shame after fleeing a civil war battle. It was selected as one of Merle Johnson's "High Spots of American Literature." The author's second book after "Maggie" and easily his best work. Included in "Men at War: The Best War Stories of All Time" by Ernest Hemingway, who wrote that this novel "is one of the finest books of our literature, and I include it entire because it is all as much of a piece as a great poem is."

Hardcover. 270 x 200 mm (10 5/8 x 7 7/8"). xix, [i], 21-139, [1] pp. Preface by Anatole France.

Spine faintly sunned, otherwise A FINE COPY, as fresh and bright as one could hope for. Featuring gallant drawings by the very popular illustrator Avril (1849-1928), this luxuriously produced and extravagantly bound novel involves regicide to restore the honor of a queen in ancient Greece. According to Ray, Paul Avril "was a witty and ingenious artist," and a prolific one, as well. His greatest work is considered to be the illustrations he did for the first edition in French of "De Figuris Veneris" (a manual of classical erotology) from the original Latin and Greek edition of 1824 by Friedrich Karl Forberg. A celebrated illustrator of the period, Édouard-Henri (later changed to Paul) Avril studied art in various Paris salons, including the École des Beaux Arts from 1874-78. Théophile Gautier (1811-72) was one of the most popular writers of his time and a famous champion of art for art's sake.
