        [Photo Album]: New England Life

      Boston and Worchester, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, 1895. Very Good. Oblong quarto. Thick red cloth beveled boards with "Photographs" in silver on front board. Commercially produced with title page reading: "The Art Album for 96 'Bullet' Photographs". Contains 95 sepia-toned gelatin silver prints in the sleeves provided (and one apparently commercially printed, probably collotype, image). Each image is 3.25" x 3.25" and have either mat or glossy finishes. Most are probably Kodak images. Some minimal captioning, mostly with place names. Hinges cracked, with some loose or detached leaves, very good. Some images with fading, overall the images are near fine. A pleasing if somewhat prosaic album of both outside locations and interior domestic images. Among the images are fashionably dressed women at lake side, several boat images: both small steamboats and handsome sailing vessels, and one of a lighthouse. Also many farm images: haywagons, silos, chickens in the barnyard, and a buckboard wagon. Several images of downtown Worchester, Massachusetts, including the train station and a train, the Oddfellows Hall, and several other downtown buildings. Another section features domestic interior images both with and without people posed in them: with an organ, a typewriter on a desk, and a large stove evident. Later are images of Boston: B.F. Kieth's Opera House, Fenuil Hall, Boston Commons, and other buildings. These are followed by some vacation shots in New Hampshire, including one of the Alpine House in Berlin, N.H.,and it ends up with a few images of women clowning around dressed as men. Nice images, mostly of New England domestic and leisure life.

        The Judgment Books.

      London: Osgood, McIlvaine & Co.,, 1895. Octavo. Original blue vertical ribbed-grain cloth, spine lettered in gilt, gilt title vignette to front cover, edges untrimmed. Spine gently rolled, light fading to spine and front cover, slight wear extremities, a couple of leaves clumsily opened, final leaf unopened, occasional faint foxing; a very good copy. First edition. This supernatural work by E. F. Benson, best known for his Mapp and Lucia novels, demonstrates his ability as an "important, capable, and skilful Edwardian author of supernatural fiction" (Bleiler). Alongside his social satires, his "stories of horror and the supernatural have remained consistently popular" (ODNB). This work tells the story of a portrait painter, who, as he paints his sitter finds some of his personality move into the portrait and part of the sitter's personality move to him. The tale is reminiscent of Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, which was first published in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine, July 1890, and in a substantially revised book form in April 1891. Locke suggests Benson may have originally written this work prior to the release of Dorian Gray, despite the later publication date. This is an uncommon work with seven copies traced institutionally worldwide.

      Nottingham, circa 1895-1910., 1895. Catalog of lace samples, either from a merchant established in the world-renowned and prolific Nottingham Lace Market, or from a lace maker's salesperson approaching the market merchants, containing 456 authentic and unique designs of registered lace patterns. Neatly contained in a period patented purpose-made binding titled "Novelty Laces" and bearing the lace maker's initials E.F.N.. The samples are mounted to blue paper backdrop on cardstock, tipped-in on brown paper leafs. Samples vary in size, the majority ranging from approximately 6 x 2 cm to 7 x 11 cm, the smallest being 3 x 2,5 cm, and the largest being 20,5 x 18,5 cm, and contained in a folio binding by Priestly and Swann, Ltd. whose shop was also on Stoney Street, and who specialized in the making of pattern books. Brown paper boards titled and initialed in gilt to front, with double perforation and leather band closure to facilitate addition or removal of leafs as offerings changed.

[In 1799 there were six lace makers in Nottingham. When machines began to do the work traditionally done manually by women, so did production increase and cost decrease. Once only afforded by the wealthy, now lace was a commodity to be enjoyed by all classes. As a result, within some thirty years, by 1832, lace makers, or rather lace producers, numbered 186 in the Nottingham region. The Lace Market continued to grow, and quickly rose to be the center of the lace trade for the entire world.] The Lace Market in Nottingham was the centre of the world's lace industry, consisting of salesrooms displaying and selling the lace, as well as warehouses for storing. Spanning a quarter-mile square in central Nottingham, it was bustling with merchants and buyers. Nottingham's Lace Market: The invention of the knitting frame in 1589 by William Lee of Calverton, in Nottinghamshire, was ultimately the cornerstone of the Lace Market, and the cornerstone of the region's future trade, although the industry took nearly a century to develop in wool, silk and lace. In 1768, Richard Arkwright established a small cotton mill in Hockley, which led to the development of back-to-back housing for mill workers. With cotton being manufactured in Hockley, lace makers began to set up shop nearby. Lace was being manufactured on a frame adapted from that of William Lee, and further improved by John Heathcote and John Levers in the early 19th century. By the 1840s lace making was changing from a domestic industry into an international export. However, the narrow confines of the town of Nottingham meant that there was very little room to build factories for the growing lace and related industries, so the businessmen set up their works in the surrounding districts. Although the manufacturing side of the lace industry left the district, the area now developed its commercial side, which gave it its name "Lace Market". It was not a public market place, but rather a "wholesale market" dealing with the wholesaling and promotion of the products of the lace industry. Lace was brought in from the outlying factories to be "finished" i.e. the rough edges trimmed off the lace if necessary, checked and so on, with the women and girls working in the "top shops" or top floors with large windows. The finished lace was then placed in the downstairs showrooms to be displayed for buyers of fashion and domestic furnishing, representing many corners of the world. Nottingham Lace became the byword for machine-made lace, and while some factories made a very high-grade fabric, a staple of much of the industry was the lace curtain trade. The introduction of the railway and the penny post facilitated rapid development and expansion, as well as consumer accessibility. Lace merchants became very prosperous and began to build warehouses and showrooms which they felt matched this prosperity, replacing some of the fine older buildings with imposing multi-storey stone-trimmed brick mansions of trade. The most imposing of these was that designed by one of Nottingham's leading architects, T.C. Hine for Thomas Adams and James Pages. Opened in 1855, to great local acclaim, the warehouse contained a number of features not previously seen in the town, including facilities for the workers such as a library, school-room, tea-room and a chapel with a resident chaplain to conduct a daily service each morning before work commenced. The chapel windows can still be seen in the right-hand basement of the Stoney Street frontage. The building is so grand that it has been compared to an Elizabethan manor house. Nottingham's Lace Market is now a protected heritage area. Most of the area is typical Victorian, with densely packed 4-7 story red brick building lining streets, iron railings, old gas lamps and red phone boxes. The Lace Market has undergone a renaissance in recent years. Nearly all of the old warehouses that were once run down during the recession years have been cleaned and renovated and have found new uses such as luxury apartments, high-spec offices and academic buildings. It has become the most sought after and affluent area of the city centre. Some of the original 19th century lace machines have been preserved and are still in use today, although adapted with computer interfaces. Machines and Tradition in Lace Making: Initially, there was some resistance to machine made lace; it was often called it "imitation lace." Designer Charles Worth was the first to use machine made lace, and in doing so, created an acceptance for the product. Suddenly the term "imitation lace" was not a slight, but rather symbolic of opportunity and affordability. Vendors advertised with the term. As machine made lace gained popularity, the number of hand made lace workers in England fell from hundreds to a few dozen per village. Around 1870, the scarcity of a traditional craft created a market for trading antique lace, especially amongst those who thought that machine lace lacked in creative design. While men operated the machine lace industry, women returned to handmade lace production during this period. Unlike the pre-industrial revolution lace makers, these women were well remunerated for the long hours they spent over their bobbin pillows. As well as incurring the costs of materials and supplies, the machine lace trade had forced a cheaper priced market. Also around the same time, there was a growing interest in "peasant lace", which was lace made in rural areas all across Europe. The First World War brought on the collapse of the lace industry from 1914-1918. All lace production was halted, as lace was a luxury and not a necessity. This was the case for both handmade lace and machine.

        American Steam Vessels

      NY, 1895. duotone ills. and plts. Oblong 4to. Unpaginated. (over 250 pp.) Displays Stanton's drawings of 250 steamboats, with brief, hand lettered descriptions, from Robert Fulton's Clermont (1807) to the steel-hulled, six-boilered, triple-screwed St. Louis. Much of the artwork was exhibited at the Chicago World's Fair, and for it Samuel Stanton was awarded a prize. The book was truly a labor of love. However, for reasons unknown, this beautiful book was bound with highly acidic materials. As a result, most copies are defective, deeply tanned, or chipped to tatters. This is a better than average copy, with hinges cracked, as usual, but holding. Front blank and half title are detached but present. Stanton's attractive plates and hand lettered text are in very good condition, showing no foxing or tanning. Bound in original cloth, osmewhat faded, but with gold lettering still visible. Laid into the book are four amusing letters from New York Bookseller A.S. Clark to Everett Barnes in 1904 regarding the purchase or loan of Morrison's “History of American Steam Navigation,” which had just been published.
