        THE ROSE AND THE KEY

      [London]: Downey & Co., n.d. [1895].. Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii [1] 2-432, original decorated dark green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, publisher's monogram stamped in blind on rear panel. First one-volume edition. First published as a 36-part serial in ALL THE YEAR ROUND, 21 January 1871 to 23 September 1871, and first published as a book by Chapman and Hall in 1871. "One of the most interesting of Le Fanu's novels, THE ROSE AND THE KEY concerns Maud Vernon, whose mother commits her to an asylum when Maud is not mentally ill. A study of human avarice and terror, Maud becomes the victim of an alienist, Dr. Antomarchi ... The characterization of Dr. Antomarchi and the realistic and believable study of the asylum give a particular horror to the novel. Le Fanu may have been influenced by Wilkie Collin's THE WOMAN IN WHITE. However, Le Fanu creates his own genuine study of human weakness and cruelty." - Gary William Crawford. "There is much in the novel that recalls Charles Reade's treatment of a somewhat similar theme in HARD CASH, and it is hardly necessary to say that the most stirring episodes concern the awful experiences of Maud Vernon at Glarewoods ... Like a surgeon who discovers a curious beauty in some physical abnormality he is called upon to remove, Le Fanu seizes on these scenes of horror and no matter how his story may have dragged in the preceding chapters he warms to the occasion with a renewed zest. Every nerve must be thrilled, each harrowing circumstance must be related, and the episode is presented to the excited reader with a kind of cold frenzy." - Nelson Browne. Early private owner's bookplate affixed to front paste-down. A hint of rubbing to cloth at spine ends and corner tips, mild bumps to upper corner tips, a bright, very good or better copy. Very scarce in this condition. (#156343)

        The Works of Washington Irving: The Autograph Edition [The Legend of Sleepy Hollow; Rip Van Winkle].

      New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1895-97. The Works of Washington Irving: The Author's Autograph edition. Octavo, bound in the publisher's three quarters morocco over marbled boards, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers, with one folding map and two folding charts. One of 500 sets, this set contains a page of original manuscript by Irving and an autograph note signed, both tipped in to volume one of The Alhambra. The manuscript leaf is page 216 of The Alhambra manuscript, with several deletions and corrections in ink. In the autograph note, signed "Washington Irving" and dated "Tuesday May 1," the author regrets not being able to accept an invitation as he is dining with "Mr. Murray". In near fine condition with light wear. A very nice set. Washington Irving was a novelist, biographer, historian, and diplomat of the early 19th century. He is best known for his short stories "Rip Van Winkle" (1819) and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (1820), both of which appear in his book The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. His historical works include biographies of George Washington, Oliver Goldsmith, and Muhammad, and several histories of 15th-century Spain dealing with subjects such as Christopher Columbus, the Moors and the Alhambra. Irving served as the U.S. ambassador to Spain from 1842 to 1846. Shortly after completing a biography of Christopher Columbus in 1828, Washington Irving traveled from Madrid, where he had been staying, to Granada, Spain. At first sight, he described it as "a most picturesque and beautiful city, situated in one of the loveliest landscapes that I have ever seen." Irving was preparing a book called A Chronicle of the Conquest of Granada, a history of the years 1478-1492, and was continuing his research on the topic. He immediately asked the then-governor of the historic Alhambra Palace as well as the archbishop of Granada for access to the palace, which was granted because of Irving's celebrity status. Aided by a 35-year-old guide named Mateo Ximenes, Irving was inspired by his experience to write Tales of the Alhambra. The book combines description, myth and narrations of real historical events, even up through the destruction of some of the palace's towers by the French under Count Sebastiani in 1812, and the further damage caused by an earthquake in 1821. Throughout his trip, Washington filled his notebooks and journals with descriptions and observations though he did not believe his writing would ever do it justice. He continued to publish regularly--and almost always successfully--throughout his life, and just eight months before his death (at age 76, in Tarrytown, New York), completed a five-volume biography of George Washington. Irving, along with James Fenimore Cooper, was among the first American writers to earn acclaim in Europe, and Irving encouraged American authors such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Edgar Allan Poe.

        1st Battalion Coldstream Guards, Household Brigade Drag Hounds, 1893-1894

      Windsor, England, 1895. Presumed first and only printing of the first edition. Almost certainly an edition of fewer than 500 copies. Printed by Oxley & Son, printers to the Queen, High Street, Windsor. Bound by R. Ingalton Drake, Eton and London, active 1869-1895. NOT ex-library. Oblong, approximately 10 x 13 inches. Bound in three-quarter oxblood morocco, the leather mostly rubbed back, with gilt rules to the boards and with highly polished black leatherette boards, with crisp gilt-stamped emblem and lettering to the front board. The black boards much rubbed and gouged, especially around the edges. About a 1/2 inch loss at the spine tail. Hinges starting but still holding quite nicely. Gorgeous period marbled paper on the pastedowns and FEPs. Hubbed spine. Very rubbed and abraded corners. A.E.G. With 43 numbered pages, and with 24 full-page B&W plates as well as 5 pasted-in color ephemera, all on coated stock. Occasional fingering marks in the margins. Almost all pages with moderate age-yellowing at the outer edges, not into the text or the plates. No remainder marks. On the verso of the front FEP, in very faded ink, a stamp reading, "Bertrand Smith, Acres of Books, Pacific Avenue, Long Beach, CA." Else a very clean copy. A Very Good Minus copy. Very scarce in any condition. Worthy of conservation/rebinding. According to the website Cheshire Bloodhounds, "Drag hunting is fox hunting, minus the fox. Drag hunting first developed as a way to test foxhounds, but it had turned into its own sport by the middle of the 19th century. Army officers enjoyed the faster-paced drag hunt at least as far back as 1863; even today, the military has a pack of drag hounds. The sport is reliant on the goodwill and cooperation of landowners and farmers." The book's narrative begins, "The Battalion arrived at Windsor from Uffington at the end of manoeuvres, On September 16th, 1893. The following day being Sunday, a well-attended levee was held at the Kennels, and a list of names being provided by Caley, attempts were made to fit them to various hounds.". First British Edition. Three-Quarter Leather. Very Good Minus. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Limited Edition.

        Cranford

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1895 - In a Fine 1897 'Exhibition' Binding by Zaehnsdorf[ZAEHNSDORF, binders]. THOMSON, Hugh, illustrator. GASKELL, Mrs. [Elizabeth]. Cranford. With a preface by Anne Thackeray Ritchie and illustrations by Hugh Thomson. London: Macmillan and Co., 1895. Early reprint of the 1891 first Thomson illustrated edition. Octavo (7 1/2 x 5 inches; 191 x 127 mm.). Frontispiece, xxx, 297, [1] pp. With 110 black and white illustrations in the text. Occasional foxing or staining especially on pp. 16/17; 104/105; 144/145, and 270/271. A fine 'Exhibition' binding by Zaehnsdorf, executed in 1897 (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in. Full crimson crushed levant morocco, covers bordered in gilt and decoratively tooled in gilt and pointille in an elaborate floral design, front cover lettered in gilt. Spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt ruled board edges,wide and elaborate gilt decorated turn-ins, ochre silk liners and end-leaves, top edge gilt, others uncut. The rear liner has the Zaehnsdorf 'Exhibition' stamp in gilt. Joints expertly and almost invisibly repaired, one corner a little bumped, still a very early and fine example of a Zaehnsdorf 'Exhibition' binding, housed in a red morocco edged, felt-lined, red cloth slipcase.Cranford, which originally appeared as a serial in Charles Dickens' magazine, Household Words, 1851-53, and saw its first publication in book form in 1853, is "a series of linked sketches of life among the ladies of a quiet country village in the 1830s.The greatest charm of Cranford, which has kept it unfailingly popular, is its amused but loving portrait of the old-fashioned customs and 'elegant economy' of a delicately observed group of middle-aged figures in a landscape" (Oxford Companion to English Literature). Mrs. Elizabeth Gaskell (1810-1865), a "strong and independent-minded woman" (The Feminist Companion to Literature), was an important proto-Feminist writer who often tackled unorthodox subjects in her novels. Cranford, for example, concerns a community of spinsters who glory in their freedom from male interference. Mrs. Gaskell was "'the most popular, with small question, the most powerful and finished female novelist of an epoch singularly rich in female novelists'" (Enclyclopedia of British Women Writers, p. 264, citing Mrs. Gaskell's obituary in The Athenaeum)."Critical awareness of Gaskell as a social historian is now more balanced by awareness of her innovativeness and artistic development as a novelist. While scholars continue to debate the precise nature of her talent, they also reaffirm the singular attractiveness of her best works" (ibid) of which Cranford is one.Hugh Thomson (1860-1920) was born in Kingsgate Street, Coleraine, Co. Londonderry, the eldest child of John and Catherine Thomson. Thomson was educated in the model school in Coleraine. At age fourteen he started working at the local linen industry but three years later he entered the employment of Marcus Ward & Co., colour printers and publishers in Belfast where his talent for drawing was encouraged by John Vinycomb, head of the art department. He married Jessie Naismith Miller in 1884 and moved to London, where he took up employment with Macmillan & Co. on the English Illustrated Magazine, joining some of the most distinguished writers and illustrators of the day. Thomson provided scenes of Covent Garden and Regency Bath and the illustrations for the Addison and Steele Spectator papers Days with Sir Roger de Coverley (1886-7). Thompson's style reflected the nostalgia of the time, his fine line drawing of rural characters and gentle countrified society appealing to the imagination of the public.

        VIAGGI D'UN ARTISTA NELL'AMERICA MERIDIONALE. I Caduvei (Mbay? o Guaycur?) con prefacione ed uno studio storico ed etnografico del Dott. G.A. Colini.

      Ermano Loescher & C.?,, Roma, 1895 - 330 pp. First edition; text in Italian; bound in brown buckram; gold lettering stamped across the spine; profusely illustrated with black and white photographs; diagrams; fold-out color map; musical notation; bibliography. Binding tight; boards clean; light foxing otherwise fine internally; see additional images provided. Photographs of people and artifacts; diagrams of weaving designs, musical notation of songs, fold-out color map of the Caduvei lands and bibliography; ie. an extremely comprehensive study of the Caduvei (Mbay? or Guaycur?) Indian tribe, once inhabiting the southwest Mato Grosso, now nearly extinct. The preface by G.A. Colini states: "I Caduvei furono d'ordinario compresi fra le trib? Mbay? o Guaycur? e furono segnalati con l'uno o con l'altro di questi nomi, o con ambedue indistintanmente. La letteratura etnografica che li riguarda, ? relativament abbondante, ma la nostra conoscenza di quest'Indiani ? molto inferiore al numero dei lavori che ne trattano. Ricordati fino dal tempo dei primi conquistatori spagnuoli che intrapresero contro di essi spedizioni di guerra, per gli attacchi ripetuti contro i coloni europei si resero temuti nel Paraguay e nel Matto Grosso, e si acquistarono un posto importante nalla storia di quei paesi. I Portoghesi del Brasile, verso la fine del secolo scorso, avendo stretto con essi rapporti di amicizia e volendo ridurli a vita sedentaria in villagi sotto il proprio dominio, fecero notevoli ricerche intorno al loro carattere morale ed intellettuale e intorno alle loro abitudini. I risultati di queste indagini, conservati principalmente nelle relazioni del geografo brasiliano Ricardo Franco de Almeida Serra, e in una monografia di Francesco Rodriguez do Prado, sono le fonti a cui attinsero di preferenza, se non esclusivamente, quasi tutti gli scrittori posteriori. . . .

        A Wheel Within a Wheel. How I Learned to Ride the Bicycle.

      Overview Details & Condition First edition, first printing. A superb copy with the rare glassine dust jacket. Copies of the first edition in such beautiful condition are scarce, and we have never handled a copy in the original jacket such as this one. There appear to be two states of the title page, one listing the Woman's Temperance Publishing Association and the Fleming H. Revell Company, the other listing only Revell, as here. It is unclear whether there is any priority between the two. This important meditation on bicycling as a tool for the emancipation of women was written by the American suffragist leader Frances Willard. The invention of the safety bicycle in the 1870s made the technology broadly accessible to the public for the first time, and by the beginning of the 1890s the US was experiencing bicycle mania. While all sections of the population participated in the new pastime, the bicycle appealed particularly strongly to women, who found in it a new freedom and sense of power. Debates over the propriety of women cycling, and the push for comfortable and non-restricting clothing for female cyclists, provided an arena in which women "actively contested and rethought femininity" (Scranton, Beauty and Business, p. 26). Many leading suffragists were enthusiastic cyclists, and the bicycle became an important symbol for the women's movement. Frances Willard was fifty-three, with a long career as a suffragist and temperance activist behind her, when she first took up cycling. Her initial interest in the sport was sparked by the belief that cycling could draw men and boys away from alcohol by offering more wholesome thrills. But she also felt stifled by the lifetime of restricted movement she had endured as a 19th-century woman, and sought to regain some of the joy of physical activity she had experienced as a child in rural Wisconsin. This elegant little volume charts Willard's progress as she learns to ride, and describes how she "found a whole philosophy of life in the wooing and winning of my bicycle" (p. 25). She muses eloquently on the thrill of speed, the joy of mastering an athletic skill, and the delights of the outdoors, and compares the tribulations of learning to ride with those of life in general. Most importantly, Willard discusses how the bicycle will transform "the woman question". "If women ride they must, when riding, dress more rationally than they have been wont to do. If they do this many prejudices as to what they may be allowed to wear will melt away... A reform often advances most rapidly by indirection. An ounce of practice is worth a ton of theory; and the graceful and becoming costume of woman on the bicycle will convince the world that has brushed aside the theories, no matter how well constructed, and the arguments, no matter how logical, of dress-reformers" (pp. 38-39). "We saw with satisfaction the great advantage in good fellowship and mutual understanding between men and women who take the road together, sharing its hardships and rejoicing in the poetry of motion... The old fables, myths, and follies associated with the idea of woman's incompetence to handle bat and oar, bridle and rein, and at last the cross-bar of the bicycle, are passing into contempt in presence of the nimbleness, agility, and skill of 'that boy's sister'" (pp. 40-41). With Some Reflections by the Way. Illustrated. New York: The Fleming H. Revell Company, 1895. Octavo. Original red cloth blocked in silver and green on the spine and upper cover. Portrait frontispiece and six plates. A superb, fresh copy in excellent condition in the glassine dust jacket with just a little toning and some minor chips and short closed tears. There are a few tiny spots along the edge of the spine where the jacket has adhered to the cloth, and we have not tried to separate them.

        Poems.

      London: T. Fisher Unwin,, 1895. Octavo. Original buff cloth, titles and elaborate designs by H. Granville Fell gilt to spine and boards, edges untrimmed. Illustrated title page with tissue-guard. Contemporary ink ownership inscription. Some small dents to the edges of rear panel, a spray of ink marking, internally sound and fresh, a bright copy in excellent condition. First edition, first impression, one of 750 copies printed, very scarce first state of the US issue with both US and UK publisher's slug to spine, but retaining the UK title page, and with the top edge ungilt. More usually copies of the US issue had a cancel title page with the Boston imprint, and a gilt top edge. O'Hegarty "notes that he has seen two copies, identical, of the American book, the only difference from the English edition being the addition of Copeland & Day on the spine only, not on the title." Though prepared for the US market, this unusual copy may well have been ultimately issued in the UK nonetheless, as it bears a near-contemporary Huddersfield bookseller's ticket (E. W. Coates - 1863-1940) at the rear.

        Robert Louis Stevenson Autographed Signed Letter.

      - One page autographed signed letter from Robert Louis Stevenson to his biographer, Louise Imogen Guiney. Matted and framed with a portrait of Stevenson. The letter reads, "Dear Miss Guiney I have waited long upon the muse, for I thought your song should be answered in kind. But I must wait no longer, and the verses refuse to come. Let me, then, thank you in prose for your book which I have read with pleasure, and for your poem which gave me genuine pride. It is a strange thing to hear one's name from across all these waters so beautifully set to song. Robert Louis Stevenson. Skerryvore, Bournemouth." The recipient of the letter, Louise Imogen Guiney was an Irish-American poet and a cataloger at the Boston Public Library. In 1895, she and Alice Brown published a biography of Robert Louis Stevenson. In 1885, Guiney published a book of poetry titled The White Sail and Other Poems, which included a poem, The Indian Pipes, dedicated to Stevenson. A very warm letter, rare and desirable. The entire piece measures 19.5 inches by 27 inches. Robert Louis Stevenson was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, and travel writer. His most famous works are Treasure Island, Kidnapped, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and A Child's Garden of Verses. A literary celebrity during his lifetime, Stevenson now ranks as the 26th most translated author in the world. His works have been admired by many other writers, including Jorge Luis Borges, Bertolt Brecht, Marcel Proust, Arthur Conan Doyle, Henry James, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, Vladimir Nabokov, J. M. Barrie and G. K. Chesterton, [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1895. Rubáiyát of Omar KhayyamIn a Fine Inlaid Binding by MorrellMORRELL, binder. Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám. The Astronomer-Poet of Persia. Rendered into English Verse. London: Macmillan and Co., 1895. Fifth edition, later printing. Octavo (8 x 5 1/2 inches; 204 x 140 mm.). Bound by Morrell ca. 1895 (stamp-signed in gilt on front paste-down). Full dark green morocco, covers double-ruled in gilt. Front cover with a very decorative wide border enclosing gilt flowers and grapes surrounding an elaborately gilt 'paisley' design inlaid in red and tan morocco. Spine with five raised bands with gilt dots, decoratively paneled, lettered and tooled in gilt in compartments, gilt board edges and decorative turn-ins, gray paste-downs and end-leaves, top edge gilt, others uncut. minimal darkening to spine otherwise a very fine example of an inlaid binding by Morell.The London bindery of W. T. Morrell was established about 1861 as successor to the firm begun by Francis Bedford, who, in turn, had taken over the famous bindery of Charles Lewis. Prideaux in her "Modern Bookbindings" published in 1906, says that Morrell at that time had a very large business that supplied "all the booksellers with bindings designed by his men," bindings that were "remarkable for their variety and merit." Edward FitzGerald's version of Omar Khayyam's quatrains was widely read only after it was taken up by the Pre-Raphaelites in 1861. The first version of the Rubáiyat had been published in 1859, the same year that Darwin's Origin of the Species had appeared. A few years later, Matthew Arnold would publish "Dover Beach", in which the melancholy long retreat of the "Sea of Faith" left humanity on a "darkling plain". Already in 1850, in "In Memoriam", Tennyson had raised questions about Christian doctrine and the immortality of the soul, only to dismiss them with suspicious glibness. The doubts and fears of the twelfth-century Persian philosopher were shared by many of his English and American readers. In the Rubáiyat, as the day wears on, its mostly agnostic protagonist becomes increasingly preoccupied by thoughts of mortality and judgment in a possible afterlife, and this too perfectly matched the Victorian preoccupation with death. Deathbed scenes were a popular staple of fiction and the cowled figure stalked through quite a few novels.

      1895 - signed with his initials, showing Lord Rosebery, (Archibald Philip Primrose, 1847-1929, 5th Earl), who in 1894 had taken over the Liberal Government from Gladstone on the latter's resigning from advanced age, standing on the shore, and pointing regretfully at plants growing in the sand, including the Marquess of Salisbury (now Conservative Prime Minister) and his nephew A.J. Balfour (Leader of the House of Commons) as a thistle, while a crowd of well-drawn faces, many in farmers' smocks and tall hats, look on, bewildered at the outcome of the general election, heads of Gladstone and previous ministers are seen drowning in the waves, 8¾" x 14" on card hinged in folding window mount 20" x 15", no date, circa June Gould made his name by his cartoon drawings of his fellow stockbrokers. By 1893 he was on the staff of the new Westminster Gazette (assistant editor, 1896), with its daily cartoon on the front page. Consistently Liberal in politics, his caricatures of Unionists were often eagerly sought by their subjects. Lord Rosebery had inherited from Gladstone a position on Home Rule for Ireland over which Parliament, the Liberals and the country were deeply divided. His government majorities dwindled, and an election was called after defeat in a 'snap' vote on a supply issue. With notes on the verso about publication, including '1895', 'No. 376', 'W', and on recto under mount 'Proof wanted for Tuesday next'. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
