        [Manuscript] The Sporting Adventures of Mr. Popple [together with] a first edition copy of the book

      London: Later published by John Lane, The Bodley Head, 1896. Half Morocco, Cloth Boards. Near Fine. Oblong, 26 by 40 cm. (This is slightly larger than the later book.) Title, 20 pp. 10 pages are devoted to the original full-page watercolors, and the title is also largely watercolored. The other pages have pen-and-ink vignettes aplenty as well as the original beautifully hand-written text, which was reproduced in the later printing. In printed form, the illustrations are fun, evocative and full of verve, yet the original artwork is truly a revelation. The colors are richer, as one might expect, but the action, and the illustrations team with movement, comes off so much more immediate and intense in this quintessential foxhunting tale of a nouveau riche newbie and all the mishaps that occur to him as he navigates the "Sport of Kings". Pencilled on the backs and/or the margins are the name Edmund Evans, the printer, and shorthand instructions for the printing. Bookplate on FEP of the Duke of Gloucester. The first edition copy comes with a paper slip insert stating that the original drawings were available for purchase from Edmund Evans, and so one can infer that this printed copy and the manuscript have been united for most of the life of the book. A few scuffs of the leather and light wear beside.

        A Child's Garden of Verses

      1896. One of 150 Large Paper Copies on Japon Vellum Influenced by Walter Crane[ROBINSON, Charles, illustrator]. STEVENSON, Robert Louis. A Child's Garden of Verses… London: John Lane, The Bodley Head, 1896. First Illustrated Edition. One of 150 large-paper copies printed on Japon vellum paper. Octavo (8 3/4 x 6 inches; 224 x 151 mm.). xiv, 136, [8] pp. Over 150 line drawings including many full-page.Publisher's original dark red cloth as issued with the green cloth covers of the trade edition as doublures, paper label to spine, top edge gilt, others uncut. Minimal rubbing to front edge of spine label (spare label at end) otherwise fine.This is the first illustrated edition of this classic work and a highpoint in any Charles Robinson collection. Robinson was entrusted with designing the layout and presentation. Proof of the care that went into the quality of the book production is that twenty-three of the larger illustrations (of 27) and eight of the smaller illustrations (of 148) are initialed by Carl Hentschel who was Aubrey Beardsley's favorite engraver.The binding has proved a mystery to some, but the answer is simple, this edition is bound in exactly the same format as the Edinburgh Edition or Collected Works of Robert Louis Stevenson announced in 1894 to be published in 20 volumes (but ultimately expanded to 28 volumes including the complimentary appendix). Volume one appeared in November 1894 - the last volume appeared in June 1898.Charles Robinson (1870-1937) was born into a family of illustrators - his younger brother was William Heath Robinson and his older brother was Thomas Heath Robinson - and rose to become one of the most fashionable book-illustrators of his era. At age twenty-five he illustrated his first full book, A Child's Garden of Verses, with over 100 images. These illustrations for Stevenson's most endearing and popular book bear the influence of the Art Nouveau style, of his brother, W. Heath Robinson, Aubrey Beardsley, and , particularly, Walter Crane.Walter "Crane's Cantor Lectures on Decorative Illustration, given before the Society of Arts in 1889, were first published in book form in 1896, although Robinson was familiar with Crane's ideas when he illustrated and designed a Child's Garden of Verses."The book was to be seen as an integrated whole and, as such, it was wrong to ignore the relationship of the binding material, cover design, end-papers, and other 'preliminary' elements to one another and the rest of the book, as it was thoughtless to arrange illustrations without considering the format of the book or the typeface with which they would be printed...Robinson...undoubtedly endorsed [Crane's] suggestions that, in any illustrated book, the preliminary material...should be suggestive of what was in store, secretive and a little playful, so that the reader was to pass on with bated breath until his initial excitement was complete with the splendour of a beautifully designed title-page" (de Freitas, Charles Robinson, p. 16).De Freitas, p. 83.

Dewick pointed out that the poems had already been printed at Tegernsee in 1579, in a 16mo volume in which they are ascribed to Stephen Langton. A note to this effect was printed in Chaucer type in December 1896 and distributed to the subscribers" (Tomkinson). This is the first of only two books printed at the Kelmscott Press in three colors. William Morris's printed illuminated transcription of an early thirteenth-century English Psalter, written as poems of praise to St. Mary the Virgin, includes four pages from Luke's Gospel and concludes with a Te Deum. Today the original Psalter, which Morris once owned, is known as the Reading Abbey Psalter and is in the Pierpont Morgan Library.Clark Library, Kelmscott and Doves, pp. 52-53. Peterson A42.

        [Photograph]: Albumen Photograph of School Girls Acting Up 1896

      Albumen photograph. Measuring 6" x 7.5" on 10" x 12" cardstock mount. 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. Cheerful and prosperous looking teenage girls, acting like teenage girls in the early days of snapshot photograph. .
