        Leaves from a Diary in Lower Bengal.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Ltd.,, 1896. By C. S. (Retired). Tall octavo. Original red and brown cloth, titles to spine and front cover gilt, decorative gilt rule to covers, dark blue coated endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Etched frontispiece, 43 plates and 2 maps, 1 of which is folding. A little marked overall, rubbing to extremities, spine sometime expertly repaired, contents toned, occasional foxing. A good copy. First edition of this agreeable, generously illustrated account of life in the Indian civil service between 1862 and 1870. The author served as a district collector and magistrate, seeing postings in Calcutta, Chittagong, Comilla, Dhaka, Burma, and elsewhere though "his life emerges as slight on work and heavy with the hunt as he lurches about pig-sticking and shooting tigers, bears, and natives with an indifferent skill" (Riddick); he was invalided back to England after being badly mauled by tiger. Fairly well-held institutionally, but rare in commerce, with two copies only traced at auction since 1928.

        Programme d'économie politique.

      Lausanne: H. Vallotton, Guex & Cie., [1896] - Octavo, pp. 16. Unbound, wire-stitched. Evenly browned, upper corner of first leaf cut away, a little light dampstain to pp. 9-12, two small tears to upper edge of final leaf, a very good copy. Neat pen and pencil annotations to contents. A short pamphlet detailing the schedule and recommended reading for Pareto's 1896 Lausanne lecture series on political economy, later annotated with page numbers referring to Pareto's first major work and the compilation of his lecture notes, Cours d'économie politique, first published in two volumes from 1896 to 1897. The series comprised 16 lectures and covered weekly topics such as bimetallism, economic crises, Gresham's law, monopolies, and the economic effects of Marx's collectivisation; with reference to works by Malthus, Owen, Proudhon, Ricardo, and Smith, among others. Despite a a clash of temperaments, and disagreement on many economic issues, Walras recommended Pareto as his successor to the chair of political economy at the University of Lausanne, and Pareto took the position permanently in 1894. "In one of his letters [Pareto] wrote: 'the worthy Walras has ended up with only six students at his lectures. The Department of Education was afraid that I would give lectures which could only be understood by a handful of people'. (Letters, Vol. I, p. 162) In 1893 he had 56 students and all reports show that he was an excellent teacher" (Cirillo, p. 26). "As to the capacity of his students, he frequently complains, as for example in the letter of 3 June 1896: 'Just imagine! My students of mathematics do not know a thing, and they have no wish to know much about economics. Only what is needed for the examination, and not a whit more! The producer must furnish the goods which the consumer wants' (Vol. I, 209). 'The teaching of economics in the Faculty of Lausanne can only be very elementary. In a high school of social sciences, the real science of economics could be taught. You will have received my programme. It is very elementary, and yet even that is too much for my students!' (Vol. I, 211, 9 June 1896)" (Wood & McLure, p. 165). Keen to retire from teaching so that he could focus on his writing, Pareto handed over the main bulk of his lecturing responsibilities to a student of his, Vittorio Racca, in June 1900. He did not manage to leave entirely, however, and was persuaded to deliver weekly lectures until he finally retired in 1907. See Renato Cirillo, The Economics of Vilfredo Pareto.

Robinson travelled to Africa to undertake a "thoroughly scientific study of the Hausa language with a view of promoting the higher interests of that people and of translating the Scriptures and other appropriate literature into that tongue" (p. 12), working on behalf of the Hausa Association, which was formed in to perpetuate the work of J. A. Robinson, a missionary at Lukajo who died in 1891. He set out from Tunis in 1894, sailing round the west African coast and travelling up the Niger to Kano, where he spent three months. His account "excited much attention, coming as it did so soon after Lieutenant-Colonel Monteil's remarkable journey from St Louis to Tripoli through Kano had revived the world's interest in the famous Hausa city" (Morel, Affairs of West Africa, p. 70). Robinson published a selection of Hausa literature in the same year, and later compiled a dictionary of the language.

        Faune 5

      Original pencil drawing. Signature stamp of the artist's signature in the lower right corner of the work, and signature stamp of the workshop at the back. Very nice condition. Provenance: the artist's studio, referenced to catalog Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny born in 1861 and died in Paris in 1932, is an important French painter. He began his career with avant-garde artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. With Émile Bernard, he is the inventor of Cloisonnisme. From 1884 to 1893, Louis Anquetin continues to explore new opportunities introduced by the release of Impressionism in French painting. From 1893, after a long confrontation with the "old masters", he adopts a bias pictorial that will line the general art movement, and take away from his friends. Dazzled by the baroque art and its creative force, so he thinks his childhood friends were involved in a pathway leading to the death of painting. He believes in a "perfect painting" which is embodied in the re-remember the lessons of Michelangelo and Rubens among others. His work becomes more conventional, he advocated a return to business by offering to reflect on the a priori conditions of any possible form of art in accordance with the rules of perspective and anatomy, as practiced by the masters the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Leaving only a few works that can be described as monumental, Anquetin turns prolific with its many studies and sketches, who considered that the design was "a very powerful means of expression" compulsory foundation of all arts plastics. Working voluntarily countdown of his time, Louis Anquetin made possible the existence of an original modern figuration. By his obstinacy and his passion for painting, he has indeed prevented is completely closed the way to the great Western tradition. You can admire his works in many prestigious museums such as the Musée d'Orsay or the Louvre in Paris, San Francisco and Detroit, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the National Gallery and the Tate London, etc.. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        [Binding, Fine- Lucien Broca] Gray Days and Gold

      New York: Macmillan, 1896. A wonderful and pristine binding by Lucien Broca, the superb and technically premier finisher of his day, who finished many of Sarah Prideaux's fine bindings. Bound in full rich navy blue crushed morocco with bold tudor rose, leaf and vine design work on both covers and similar designs on panels on spine, attractive dentelles with parallel ruling and two tudor roses on each corner, marbled endpapers. Bears Broca's personal gilt stamped palet on front lower dentelle (scarce indeed), "BOUND BY L. BROCA." AEG. Book is fine. An extremely rare and sought after binding by the French-born bookbinder who worked more or less full-time with Sarah Prideaux around 1901, and really only solo'd a short couple of years before falling into ill-health. Fine copies of his signed bindings are vanishingly scarce.

Stains on the edges of the mount, ink numbers and date (Sept. 22, 1896) at the bottom of the image, slight indented line on the right hand side, the image is otherwise very near fine. The image is of 15 older teenage schoolgirls engaged in various activities. In the foreground is a young woman with a box camera, another plays the guitar oblivious to the girl behind her pretending to cut her hair with scissors. Another holds a ceremonial sword, while two girls, arm-in-arm, turn away from the camera. A series of ink numbers above the date, might indicate some sort of code; we haven't cracked it.

        Da Cecilia Metella a Ponte Salario 1896 - 1897. Note della Baronessa di Munchausen. Fotografie di Pietro Sbisà. Prefazione di Gabriele d'Annunzio.

      Album con copertina originale in tela rossa e titolo in oro (cm. 15,7x25,5); pp. 78 nn. Complessivamente 36 immagini fotografiche tutte inerenti alla caccia alla volpe nell'Agro Romano a piena pagina + altre immagini fotografiche di formato più piccolo. L'album pubblicato nel 1897 probabilmente in forma privata per i partecipanti alla caccia è dedicato al Marchese Luciano di Roccagiovine Capocaccia, con una bellissima prefazione di Gabriele d'Annunzio: "Al caro Master, non v'è al mondo poesia che uguaglia di profondità e di altezza questa dell'Agro, e in nessuna ora io mi sono sentito vivere d'una vita così intensa , così pura e così libera come quando il vostro -Tally ho!- più secco e più risoluto d'un colpo di frusta o di un colpo di speroni lanciava il mio cavallo su una di quelle vaste solitudini fiorite, in fondo a cui sorge l'aspra maceria che la volpe incalzata dai cani sorpassa allungandosi contro le pietre vivida e agile come una fiamma fulva. Non mai, quanto allora, io mi son sentito della medesima razza di quel Claudio Cantelmo che a cavallo per l'Agro attingeva la suprema ebrezza aspirando dalle gramigne putride l'odore della morte...". Il testo della Baronessa di Munchausen è suddiviso in giornate di caccia: 23 Novembre 1896, Tre Fontane; 28 Novembre 1896, Coazzo; 1 dicembre, Centocelle... 15 marzo, Ponte Salario. Affascinante resoconto di caccia alla volpe nell'Agro Romano alla fine dell'Ottocento. Axs

        Through Jungle and Desert.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Ltd.,, 1896. Travels in Eastern Africa. Large octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, gilt lion-head vignette to front board, Photogravure portrait frontispiece, one similar plate, 18 full-page wood-engravings counted in the pagination, numerous illustrations within the text, 2 large folding colour maps in end-pocket as issued. Contemporary ownership ink-stamp to the front free endpaper and title page. Extremities lightly rubbed, a few nicks to spine-ends, small perforation to front joint, pale marking to sides. A very good copy. First edition of this "well-written work of discovery, adventure and big game hunting" (Czech). Chanler (1867-1934), a wealthy young American, visited German East Africa in 1889 and explored the area around Kilimanjaro. In 1892 he and a friend, Arthur Donaldson Smith, decided to explore the region north of the Tana River in what is now Kenya, engaging as a guide Ludwig von Höhnel, an Austrian naval officer who had recently made the discovery of Lake Turkana with Hungarian explorer Samuel Teleki. Meeting in Zanzibar, the group ascended the Tana by boat before proceeding on foot up its north-western tributary, the Mackenzie (now the Leiburu), and followed the Guasso Nyiro to its source near Merti. "The expedition mapped country previously unknown but had its problems: the porters quit and von Höhnel had to be returned to the coast on a stretcher after being charged by a rhinoceros" (Howgego). In addition to rhinoceros the party also hunted hippopotamus, elephant, oryx and other plains game. Chanler later served in the Spanish-American War and briefly represented the Democrats in Congress.

        A Shropshire Lad.

      London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner, & Co. Ltd,, 1896. Octavo. Original japon-backed pale blue paper boards, paper spine label printed in red, edges untrimmed. Housed in a custom red crushed morocco pull-off case with raised bands and gilt lettering to spine. Title page printed in red and black. Boards generally rubbed, spine label with some chips an a little loss to titles, superficial crack to rear joint from the foot, some minor spotting within, still a sound copy, very good. First edition, state "A" (with the word "Shropshire" on paper spine label measuring 33 mm wide), of Housman's influential poetry collection. The entire first printing, made at Housman's expense after Macmillan rejected the book, consisted of 500 sets of sheets, of which 150 were exported to the United States with an 1897 title page, 250 were bound for the first British issue (as here), and 100 bound up slightly later in a second state binding for Britain. "Though not an instant success, the little volume gradually won a large audience through the universality of its dominant themes (nature, love, war, and death) and the directness of its language and rhythms. In a period of war, uneasy peace, and rapid social change, Housman was one of the most familiar and most highly regarded of the poets of his time. His celebration of landscapes and a rural life distinctively and traditionally English contributed to his poetry's appeal" (ODNB). This copy has the ownership inscription of a contemporary reader: "Edward Jackson, Kingston on Thames, Ordered: London - July. 1896. Sent to: Hayling Island. July 31 '96". This Jackson (no relation, as far as we can trace, of Housman's unrequited love Moses) was clearly a sensitive reader, and has noted in pencil two aphoristic utterances on the nature of Poetry, of which Housman himself might, privately, have approved: "Poetry speaks to the heart first: afterward to the head. Otherwise, it is not Poetry. Nor is it good Poetry unless heart and head be sound. WHen they are sound, and there is no quarrel between them, comes the best Poetry. (11.12.98)", and "The best Poetry has never been written nor Spoken, but felt. You cannot write a life; you can only write about it.

From his early years at Oxford he was praised for his scholarly literary compositions and intellectual prominence. At age 27 his was ordained as a deacon, and priested at age 30. In 1874 he left his position at Oxford for Embleton hoping to write a history of the papacy. From there he published the first two volumes of his most renown work the History of the Papacy, and many papers on figures from the Italian Renaissance to the English Historical Review, of which he was the editor for it's first five years. In 1884 he accepted a position at Cambridge as the first Dixie professor of ecclesiastical history. Shortly after, in 1885 he was appointed a canon of Worcester Cathedral where he contributed actively until appointed as a bishop of Peterborough in 1891. Despite being a man of his time, with high standards of behavior, sober and deliberate use of his time, he was considered approachable, and humorous, inspiring affection among those he knew. He was enthroned as bishop of London in 1897, and focused attention during these final years of his life on theological training and record conservation. Despite the rapid and drastic changes facing England during his time, Creighton managed to contribute reliable and clear-sighted historical studies, including his history of the reign of Queen Elizabeth.

Mendelssohn I p. 149; SABIB 1 p. 237; Hosken p. 21. <br> Bolus began to take a special interest in Orchidaceae after his first trip to Kew. His first publications on Orchidaceae appeared in 1882 when besides his 'Notes on some Cape orchids' he published 'A list of published species of Cape orchideae' prepared largely during a visit to Kew in 1881. He published The orchids of the Cape Peninsula in 1888 many of the 102 species which he described being illustrated with partly-coloured plates which he prepared himself. This work was followed in 1893 by the first volume of his Icones orchidearum Austro-Africanarum extra-tropicarum. Although he worked on two volumes the second did not appear until just after his death in 1911. A third volume was edited and completed by Miss H. M. L. Kensit with nine extra plates painted by his son Frank Bolus (1870-1945) and published in London in 1913."
