        SELECT CONVERSATIONS WITH AN UNCLE (now extinct) and Two Other Reminiscences

      London: John Lane/ New York: The Merriam Company, 1895. First Edition Issued in America of Wells’ first literary work (preceded only by two scientific texts). With the illustrated, decorated title-page. 8vo, publisher’s original light brown clowh, pictorially decorated and lettered in blue and red on the upper cover and spine. 182 + 5 pp. undated ads (Merriam) pp. This is a very nice copy, about as close as one can reasonably expect to being fine. The book is increasingly difficult to come by. A quite nice inscription is penned at the front of the volume. VERY SCARCE. These pieces had originally appeared in “The Pall Mall Gazette” in 1893-94 while Wells had been a drama critic on the publication’s staff. He used a “bombastic old fraud” of an “Uncle” character to expound his opinions on a variety of social matters. “The best of the pieces involve fashionable conversation, how to listen to social music, the problems of the newly married, riding a tricycle...” [Smith]. SELECT CONVERSATIONS, published in June 1895 heralded Well’s explosion onto the literary scene: THE TIME MACHINE was published one day later, followed by THE WONDERFUL VISIT in September and THE STOLEN BACILLUS in November. The English and American editions share the same title page, but Lane’s London eiditon is in a binding identifying the book as a volume in “The Mayfair Set; and the London edition had the Bodley Head rather than the Merriam ads at the rear. The London edition consisted of only 650 copies and it is probable that the American edition was issued in a similar number as well. This copy is in the binding variant with no publisher’s name at the foot of the spne and with the decorations in red and blue in the form of roses.

      n.d., n.p. - An excellent single page (5" x 7-1/2"), 23 lines with corrections, apparently removed from the 1895 Manuscript Edition of his collected works, here with the limitation page only from that set mentioning the page of manuscript. It is numbered "69" here but is actually page 45 of the finished book, the text from Chapter 7 titled "Columbus before the council at Salamanca," which describes Columbus's first appearance before the assembly of university professors and church dignitaries that were brought together to pass judgment on Columbus's proposition to sail westward to India. The council brought up many objections, primarily based on Scripture and incorrect scientific assumptions. For example, one objection was that even if Columbus were to reach India, the rotundity of the globe would present a kind of mountain that would make it impossible for Columbus to sail back up to return to Spain. One of the council members convinced by Columbus's reasoning was Diego de Deza. The manuscript here begins with a mention of him. In full: [Diego de Deza was] "an able and erudite man, above the narrow bigotry of bookish lore, and could appreciate the value of wisdom, even when uttered by unlearned lips. He seconded Columbus with all his powers and influence, and by their united efforts, they brought over several of the most intelligent men of the assembly. Still there was a preponderating mass of inert bigotry and learned pride in the erudite body, which refused to yield to the demonstrations of an obscure foreigner, without fortune or connexions, or any academic honours. After this celebrated examination of Columbus, the board held occasional conferences, but without coming to any decision; Fernando de Talavera, to whom the matter was especially entrusted, had too little esteem for it, and was too much occupied by the stir and bustle of public concerns, to press it to a conclusion; his departure with the court from Cordova, early in the." The remainder of that sentence, not present in this manuscript: "spring of 1487, put an end to the consultations, and left Columbus in a state of the most tantalizing suspense." Laid down on a slightly larger piece of paper. Fine and an important manuscript page from one of Irving's most celebrated works

        A Joyful Christmas to You

      London, Paris & NY: Tuck, Raphael, (c. 1895-1901). A stunning pop-up Christmas card that opens to reveal a four-tiered nativity scene, in which seven angels surround the Christ Child. In the background, a snowy Christmas tree is decorated with red candles. The tree's snow covering and the angels' wings are heightened with glitter. Bright sprigs of holly accent the scene. Printed in ornate lettering on the front of the card is a Christmas greeting in verse, with a scrolling gilt, embossed border. In 1880, Raphael Tuck's son, Adolph, held a very successful nationwide competition for Christmas card designs, followed by an exhibition. According to Whitton, "Collectors and historians of the development of the Christmas card recognized that these two events organized by Adolph Tuck were a turning point in the progress of Christmas cards," after which they "became the accepted way of expressing sentiment and goodwill at Christmastime." Previous owner's inscription on the back; a few of the angels' wings and the top of the Christmas tree have been repaired, else a very nice survival.

        The People of the Moon

      Artemis Library. The People of the Moon. A Novel. With illustrations by [A.] d?Aguilcourt. London: "The Electrician" Printing and Publishing Company, Limited, [1, 2, and 3] Salisbury Court, Fleet Street, N.D. [1895]. All rights reserved. Extra cr.8vo; half-title not called for; dedication, Contents, and List of Illustrations leaves precede start of text; frontispiece and seven half-tone plates; twenty-one illustrations in the text; printer?s imprint leaf at end, blank on recto; pp.[vi]+402+[ii]; 8pp. publisher?s inserted advertisements at end; diagonally fine-ribbed cobalt blue buckram-surfaced cloth, blocked scarlet on back cover, blocked and lettered black, scarlet and silver on front cover and spine; a.e. silver; end-papers printed florally in olive. Slight rubbing to head and tail of spine, and a couple of small nicks to tailband; lengthy inscriptions on front end-papers, and dedication leaf removed (v. note); one or two light pencilled notes and other markings, mostly marginal, and one in ink (v. note); some foxing to prelims. and a couple of other leaves; otherwise a very nice copy. Inscribed in ink on the front free end-paper "Ms. I. Mitchell / From the Author. 21st. April, 1899." Since the remainder of the front end-papers are taken up by lengthy quotations from the works of Byron and Tennyson, and a reminder of a performance of ?Lascia ch?io piagna?, written in the same hand and all suggestive of romantic intent, it is a reasonable hypothesis that the dedication leaf, dating from some three or four years earlier, was removed by the author himself before the book was given. The original dedication read "This little book is affectionately dedicated to the memory of that dear friend whose name is inscribed in a Devonshire churchyard but whose spirit has passed." The verso bore two lines from Tennyson?s ?In Memoriam? (xxiii, stanza 4) followed by fourteen from Byron?s ?Mazeppa? (the opening of stanza VI), and these, with variations (the first two lines of the Byron having been omitted and two added to the Tennyson, completing the stanza) have here been transcribed onto the front end-papers. The light pencil scoring drawing attention to particular passages may be in two different hands, as also the corrections of typos etc., but the reading date ?May 8th., 1899? at the end, appears to be authorial. The recipient?s attention is certainly being drawn in at least one place to meanings beyond the mere sense of the text. A wavy line on p.305, in the same ink as the inscription, is drawn beside the passage: "Yet betwixt her and him there was a great chasm fixed; so that it was impossible for him to go to her, while it seemed equally impossible for her to ascend to him..."! Corrections, etc. have been made as follows: p.24, ll.9 and last line, p.27, l.13, p.54, l.8, and p.72, l.10 ?s? of ?towards? struck out in pencil; p.28, l.24, ?my? underlined and the correction ?many? added in the margin; p.147, l.23, ?lay? altered to ?laid?; p.196, l.24, full-stop altered to question-mark; p.198, l.29, after the name ?Almida? is pencilled ?= Truth?. Those to p.147 and p.196 appear not to be authorial, but in a different hand, presumably that of the recipient. The author, who was born in Calcutta in 1866, was privately educated at Bristol, and later at the Merchant Venturer?s College in that city and at Bristol University College, where he studied physics and engineering, joining the staff of ?The Electrician? in 1893, and becoming editor in 1897, a post from which he resigned in the Winter of 1899 after becoming ill. He died in 1902, nursed by his wife. A member of the Institution of Electrical Engineers, the Société des Ingénieurs Civils de France, and Fellow of the Physical Society of London, he was deeply interested in physics, especially astrophysics and the bearing of astronomical phenomena and history on the evolution theory of the universe. His general interest in science, and involvement with the scientific community, perhaps prompted him to foresee a number of advances that have since occurred, as well as many that have not: anti-gravity, telepathy, hypnosis, air-conditioning, television, a speech synthesiser that scans and reads books, vertical-take-off-and-landing aircraft, airships, autopilots, something resembling atomic energy, the use of aluminium in building, remote sensors, electric lifts, elevated electric railways, matter transmitters, videophones, force-shields that only intercept fast-moving objects, reconstitutable dried foods, superconductors... A book that may have had some influence on H.G. Wells, whose ?First Men in the Moon? appeared some five of six years later, and like this tells of a race of beings living inside a largely hollow moon - though the first section, set on Earth, is dominated by a character, Professor Goss, who seems a precursor of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle?s Professor Challenger. Published, according to the ?English Catalogue of Books? in October, 1895. The imprint leaf reads on verso: "London: / Printed by Geo. Tucker, Salisbury Court, Fleet Street, E.C.", the street numbers being given in the advertisements. A very scarce title, COPAC recording only the Oxford, Cambridge, and National Library of Scotland copies; not in Sadleir, Wolff, Clute and Nicholls, or the British Library Catalogue; Locke, ?Spectrum?, I, p.48. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

      New York: Harper and Brothers, 1895. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 750 COPIES. (This is copy #560). Hardcover. 264 x 187 mm (10 3/8 x 7 3/8"). Four volumes. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 750 COPIES. (This is copy #560). Pleasant contemporary blue-gray half morocco, raised bands, spines in unusual wavy-ruled and lobed gilt compartments, with clusters of small dots as corner- and sidepieces, and jester's head or theatrical masks as centerpiece, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed. With 131 photogravure plates by Edwin Abbey, as called for, all with lettered tissue guards. Spines very faintly and uniformly faded, but the bindings in fine condition, without any of the expected rubbing to joints or chafing to paper sides. A hint of browning at edges of pages, a few leaves roughly opened, a pale four-inch stain at bottom of one page, other trivial imperfections, but generally quite fine internally, the text and plates very fresh and clean, and the margins especially ample. These delightful illustrations of the 14 comedies are by American artist Edwin A. Abbey (1852-1911), and feature the "dazzling light effects, close attention to detail, and keen insight into human emotions" that the DNB cites as characteristic of Abbey's work. They were the artist's largest commission for "Harper's Monthly" and, according to ANB, were printed "using new photomechanical processes that benefited Abbey's fluid and detailed style." The plates are among his best work. Abbey was a renowned and respected artist in his day, and received many honors, including the offer of a knighthood by King Edward VII, which he declined in order to retain his American citizenship. The bindings here are unsigned, but they have imaginative design elements and are executed with considerable skill.

Collection of 13 original photographs documenting daily life at Wallaga Lake during the later nineteenth-century, including a significant group portrait including Aboriginal children at Corunna school circa 1895.Four Aboriginal children are included in the portrait of 20 schoolchildren, and an inscribed note to the reverse of the photograph identifies this as the school at Corunna (located some 10 kilometres north of Wallaga Aboriginal reserve). The reserve was created in 1891 and became home to over 90 Yuin Aboriginal persons. The children in the group portrait were under the care and instruction of Sister Ivy, who is identified by name in a separate portrait photograph included in this collection.Several other photographs detail the homestead 'Morwenstowe' located upon the shores of Wallaga Lake, showing the clearing and improvement of the farm as well as boating, coaching and other leisure activities. Three photographs in the collection depict high country pastures around Tumut; the remainder concern the Wallaga Lake region and hinterlands.

      Meadville, Pa. 1895.. 400pp. including illustrations, plus plates (ten double-page). Half title. Frontispiece portrait. Large quarto. Modern three-quarter leather over original brown publisher's cloth, cover stamped in gilt, spine gilt with leather labels. Old ex-lib. markings on half title, titlepage, and text block edges. Some leaves with small edge tears. Minor soiling. A good copy. This is the first complete narrative of Powell's famous expedition of 1869-72, previously documented only in reports consisting largely of scientific data. Privately published, this volume contains far more information than any of the government reports of Powell's journeys, and is the best book of one of the seminal figures in the West in the late 19th century. It also contains important documentation of Powell's botanizing and collecting activities. The double-page views of the Grand Canyon are after topographical artist W.H. Holmes' beautiful drawings. This is a very elusive book, remarkable in being quite large and extensive, but privately printed and evidently issued in a very small edition. It is one of the most difficult books to find, of major textual importance, in all Western Americana. HOWES P527, "aa." GRAFF 3335. TAXONOMIC LITERATURE 8244. FARQUHAR, COLORADO RIVER 43.
