With Illustrations by the Author, and Frontispiece by Sir J.E. Millais, R.A.London: Henry Sotheran, 1895. First trade edition. Folio (15 1/8 x 11 5/8 in; 384 x 296 mm). x, 236 pp. Thirteen uncolored electro-engravings with tissue guards, including frontispiece, twelve full-page black and white plates, 125 black and white text illustrations.

Marbled endpaperes, top edge gilt, others uncut. Engravings exhibit light spotting to margins. A very small rub spot to lower board. Otherwise a fine copy. Housed in a cloth slipcase.John Guille Millais (1865-1931) was an English artist, naturalist, gardener and travel writer who specialized in wildlife and flower portraiture. He traveled extensively around the world in the late Victorian period detailing wildlife often for the first time. His was clearly a wanderlust based on a desire to see, record and paint the natural world. To this end he traveled widely in Europe, Africa and North America. A Breath of the Veldt , based upon his trip to South Africa, was his second of seventeen books on his travels and the wildlife of the places he journeyed through.It is quite likely that Millias influenced Rider Haggard's Alan Quarterman novels. Millais was was the friend and biographer of F.C. Selous, the big-game hunter that Haggard based Quartermain upon, and his descriptions of the Veldt, in which Haggard set so much of his fiction, were most certainly read and referenced by Haggard."Never before, or elsewhere, have the winged and furred creatures of the wild lived in their lithe beauty and fantastic grace as in these delicate drawings" (The Telegraph, contemporary comment cited by Mendelssohn) Mendelssohn, Sidney. South African Bibliography; being the Catalogue Raisonné of the Mendelssohn Library of Works relating to South Africa. II, p. 13.

        Chrysanthemum leucanthemum [Chrysanthemum]

      Braunschweig: Friedrich Viewig & Sons, 1895. Colour-printed lithograph. Discreet ink stamp in the lower right corner of the plate. Good condition apart from some overall light soiling, mild rippling. A rare, vividly coloured plate from 'Anschauungstafeln fuer den Unterricht in der Pflanzenkunde', Friedrich Oskar Pilling's detailed series of botanical teaching posters. Botanical posters such as this were primarily used by German university instructors during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to teach courses in botany and phytopharmacy. They were also sometimes used in high school biology classes. Typically, they were hung on the walls of a classroom or lecture hall where the teacher could refer to them during the course of a lecture. The particular series from which this plate comes most likely illustrates the complete system of flowering plants as well as the most common and significant species of the major plant families. Although occasionally printed as a series and issued by a major publisher such as Viewig & Sons, these didactic posters were frequently individually hand-made and hand-painted. They are rarely used today, and can usually only be found in university archives, libraries, and botanical museums.

        Les Mois Douze Compositions D'Eugene Grasset graves fur bois & imprimes en chromotypographie

      Paris: G. De Malherbe, (1895). First edition. Hardcover. No Dust Jacket. 32 x 24.5 cm. Series of twelve color plates, one for each month, designed by the calendar of the Parisian department store of La Belle Jardiniere., image sheet size approximately 20 x 15.2 cm. In the early 1890's Grasset began experimenting with a new form of printing called chromotypography invented by his friend, Firmin Gillot. This calendar was printed in "Gillotage," a version of chromoypographie where the plates are engraved on wood and printed on vellum. Both Arwas and Murray Robertson date this calendar to 1896, but it was offered in the May 15, 1894 issue of La Plume (which was dedicated to Grasset's work). La Plume offered the calendar for sale on vellum at 5 francs, quoting it as "extremely rare." Grasset spent approximately 20 years working for La Belle Jardinere, designing additional calendars in 1899 and 1904. GORDON RAY p.465. Grasset "developed an early version of Art Nouveau to which he subsequently remained faithful, developing it constantly until 1900." Plates loose as issued in lettered gray wrappers, separated at spine, some light marginal toning at very edges outside the image area. In fine custom gilt lettered cloth portfolio with silk ties.

        Purple Orchids

      Brussels 1895 - This outstanding watercolor by Alfred Goossens, Purple Orchids, 8” x 6.25”, was created as a part of a collection for Dictionnaire Iconographique des Orchidees. These illustrations were printed as chromolithographs, and the volumes were published in Brussels, 1895-1907. The striking watercolors display the detail and symmetry of these delicate flowers, while creating a three-dimensional vision that results in a very lifelike look. The important Belgian botanist Alfred Celestin Cogniaux (1841-1916) chose Alfred Goossens to illustrate his extensive Dictionnaire Iconographique des Orchidees; a 12-volume work published over 12 years. Cogniaux, who is remembered for his omprehensive systemization of Brazilian orchids, made an important contribution to the study of orchids and many species were named after him.The American Orchid Society made Goossens an honorary member for his contribution to the scientific study of orchids. This watercolor is in excellent condition with vibrant coloring and dynamic shading.

        [Broadside or poster]: Taffy's Revised Football Rules

      New York: McIntosh Publishing Co.. [1895]. Broadside poster advertising the 1895 book. 12.5" x 18". Illustrated by F. Richard Anderson. Printed in black with a whimsical football illustration on pale green paper. Very good with small chips to the extremities affecting no printing, and a small piece of tape on the reverse (to no purpose). The illustration depicts a man in a fleur-de-lys uniform with a leather(?) nose guard, opposed in the distance by some rather goofy looking football players (some with "Y," "H," "C," and "P" -- presumably for Yale, Harvard, Columbia, and Princeton or Penn). Anderson was a very successful Broadway costume designer, which probably explains the tres sportif uniform. The poster for a very early football book, following Walter Camp's American Football (considered the first book on the sport) by four years. Rare. OCLC locates one copy of the 36 page book at the University Club in New York City, and no copies of this poster. .

        Sir Frederic Leighton Bart, P.R.A: An Illustrated Chronicle

      London -GeorgeBell and Sons 1895 - An in-depth study of the life and works of Frederic Leighton. Witha frontispiece and numerous further photogravure plates featuring examples of Leighton's work, manywith captionedtissue-guards. Includesa prefatory essay by F. G. Stephens. List of exhibited works and dates to the rear. Copperplate ink inscription reading 'The Yates-Thompson Prize for Art, J. P. Chambers July 1919' to front blank. Frederic Leighton, Baron Leighton (18301896). As an artist, Leighton quickly gained a reputation as a rising talent of the English art world. He was in a sense an aberrant figure in the context of English Victorian art, having been trained in, and subscribing to, an academic method of work. Leighton's most remarkable paintings of the 1860s were of the so-called aesthetic type, without ostensible subject and ambiguous in the identification of the figures in anthropological, social, or even, on occasions, gender terms. This amounted to a rejection of the conventions of British art, which held that paintings should lend themselves to easy interpretation of narrative subjects, in favour of ideas about the function and purpose of art that had circulated on the continent. He dabbled in many genres of painting, from classical subjects to landscape to portraiture. He was admired by his contemporaries for his virtuosity in the handling of paint and the manipulation of colour. DNBCondition: In a half morocco armorial school prize binding. Externally smart with some rubbing to the extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Nice and bright,particularly the plates, and generally clean, with some instances of scattered light foxing, particularly to the first few pages. Several ink signatures beneath the inscription to the front blank. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Klinischer Atlas der Laryngologie nebst Anleitung zur Diagnose und Therapie der Krankheiten des Kehlkopfes und der Luftröhre. Hrsg. weil Dr. John Schnitzler, unter Mitwirkung von M. Hajek und Arthur Schnitzler.

Erste Ausgabe! - Als der Atlas 1895 erschien, war Johann Schnitzler (1835-1893) bereits zwei Jahre tot. Das nachgelassene Werk wurde von seinem Sohn Arthur Schnitzler (1862-1931) und seinem Assistenten Markus Hajek (1861-1941) herausgegeben. - "Die meisten der in diesem Atlas zu Abbildung gelangten Krankheitsformen hat weiland Prof. Schnitzler in seinen Cursen zur Demonstration benützt, und erst als sich in der laryngologischen Literatur der Mangel eines im weiteren Sinne brauchbaren Atlas fühlbar machte, fasste er die Idee, seine Sammlung von laryngologischen Bildern weiteren Lehrkreisen zugänglich zu machen. Die Mehrzahl der Bilder sind von den Herren Carl und Julius Heitzmann gezeichnet worden. - Im Bezug auf die Arbeitstheilung im Text sei angeführt, dass der grösste Teil von mir herrührt. An den ersten fünf Lieferungen hat auch Herr Arthur Schnitzler mitgearbeitet. Das Capitel der Therapie der Larynxtuberculose rührt vom Herausgeber selbst her." M.Hajek, Vorwort - "Das Interesse Johann Schnitzler galt stets auch der Tuberkulosefrage. Als Koch 1890 sein neues Heilverfahren bekanntgab, reiste Schnitzler im selben Jahr nach Berlin, um es dort zu studieren und unternahm im Herbst 1890 an seiner Abteilung der Poliklinik eine Reihe von Versuchen mit dem Kochschen Mittel. Die Berichte und Abbildungen in seinem Klinischen Atlas der Laryngologie" legen davon Zeugnis ab. Die Figuren der Tafel 1-8 der Tafel 17 "zeigen gang ungewöhnlich ausgeprägte Formen der Tuberculose des Kehlkopfes."

        The Second Jungle Book.

      1895 1895 - London: Macmillan, 1895. 8vo. Orig. illust. blue cloth binding. Gilt. (iv, 238, 2pp.). Edges gilt. With numerous illusts. by J. L. Kipling. 1st edition. Complete. NOTE: The Jungle Books have been one of the most popular and enduring stories since their publication in 1894 & 1895 and were firmly lodged in popular culture when Walt Disney adapted the stories into an animated movie in 1967. The story tells of the child Mowgli, who is a foundling brought up by wolves. He learns over time through the instruction of various animal mentors the rules or ‘Laws’ of the jungle. Key figures are the wise black panther, Bagheera, and Baloo the sleepy bear. Both of these friendly beasts contribute to the child’s education. We learn about the great enmity between Mowgli and the tiger Shere Khan, who killed the boy's parents. Like Just So Stories (1902) it portrays the natural world and especially its creatures in a romantic anthropomorphized manner, entertaining to adult and child alike.The simplicity of the concept and the lack of didactic moral overtones have made The Jungle Books a lasting influence on the young.

        The poetical works Of Dante Gabriel Rossetti

      Edited with preface by William M. Rossetti. A new edition in one volume. Ellis and Elvey, London, 1895. All rights reserved. Drypoint portrait frontispiece by G.W. Sherborne from a photograph taken in 1864, with tissue guard; pp.[xxxii]+380; original (v. note) dark green crushed Levant morocco very elaborately tooled gilt on sides and spine after a design by the author, lettered gilt on spine, doublures ruled and tooled gilt with small florets and leaves, again after a design by the author; French marbled end-papers; a.e. burnished gold. Fine copy. Despite the ‘New Edition’ on the title-page, this is actually, as William Rossetti’s Preface makes clear, the first collective edition of his brother’s original poems (without the translations). The binding, which is by Zaehnsdorf, is signed and dated 1895, suggesting that this copy was supplied by the publisher as sheets, and that this is its original dress. It reproduces, as far as the outside covers are concerned, though on a smaller scale, Rossetti’s design for the covers of the 1870 edition of the ‘Poems’, the tooling here being more perfect than the blocking on cloth of the originals, however, the brasses for that having been cut badly - though to speak more truly it follows more precisely the design of the binding of the two volume Collected Works of 1886, in its original envisagement, the lower of the two small panels on the sides having ten horizontal rows of circlets on the front and eleven on the back cover. The tools used on the doublures are based on elements of the end-paper design of the 1870 volume. A beautiful volume, and one of only a very small issue so bound. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.
