      Westminster: Archibald Constable and Co., 1896-1911. - "The Standard Edition"Numbered and Initialed by George Meredith.GEORGE, Meredith. The Works. Westminster: Archibald Constable and Co., 1896-1911. [The Memorial edition], limited to 1025 copies, this being copy no. 527, numbered and initialed (GMM) by Meredith. Thirty-six octavo volumes (8 1/2 x 5 5/8 inches; 216 x 142 mm.). Frontispiece to first volume. Armorial bookplate of Louise G. Emmet on front pastedowns.Contemporary three-quarter crimson morocco over red cloth boards ruled in gilt by Birdsall of Northampton (stamp-signed). Spines decoratively gilt in compartments, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. Original cloth covers preserved at end. The mildest of wear. Occasional mild, scattered foxing. A handsome set."Ah, Meredith! Who can define him? His style is chaos illumined by flashes of lightning" (Oscar Wilde). His signature is extremely rare; lightning strikes this initialed set."The Memorial Edition of the Works of George Meredith. is the standard edition" (Encyclopedia Britannica).Victorian novelist George Meredith's (1828-1909) writing was characterized by a fascination with imagery and indirect references. He had a keen understanding of comedy and his Essay on Comedy (1877) is still quoted in most discussions of the history of comic theory. In The Egoist, published in 1879, he applies some of his theories of comedy in one of his most enduring novels. Some of his writings, including The Egoist, also highlight the subjection of women during the Victorian period. During most of his career, he had difficulty achieving popular success. His first truly successful novel was Diana of the Crossways published in 1885. His first big novel, The Ordeal of Richard Feverel, was judged so shocking that Mudie's circulating library canceled an order of 300 copies. Meredith was richly honored: he succeeded Lord Tennyson as president of the Society of Authors, and in 1905 he was appointed to the Order of Merit by King Edward VII.

        A Handbook of Bandy, or Hockey on the Ice

      London: Horace Cox. 1896. First. First edition. Gray cloth boards ruled in black and titled in gilt. 57,(3),(4 ads)pp. Frontispiece photograph, line drawings and diagrams throughout. Moderate soiling, else a very pleasing, near fine copy. While other books on winter sports discuss hockey and bandy, this is the very first book solely devoted to hockey. Inscribed on the front pastedown: "R.H. White from C.G. Tebbutt. Jan 1896." The sports ice hockey and bandy (which usually has larger teams, and rules that in some ways emulate soccer) were mostly synonymous at the time, although the game we are familiar with today evolved away from bandy to follow the Canadian rules. The Tebbutt family, Arnold, Neville, and Charles Goodman, all contributed to this book, although Arnold is given pride of place as author on the title-page. Of the three, C.G., who inscribed this copy, was probably the most influential: he introduced hockey into Sweden in 1894, and also organized the first international Bandy match, in 1891 between English and Dutch teams. A rare book, neither OCLC nor RLIN records a copy, and we have never seen another. .

        Büste einer Frau mit dunklem hochgestecktem Haar im Profil nach links.

      . Kohle und Farbstifte, teils gewischt, Pinsel in Grau, auf braunem Velin, rechts unten signiert "J. L. Groppe.". 48,1:48,2 cm. In der Ecke rechts unten Knickfalte, im Rand rechts kleiner Einriß, verso in den Rändern alte Verklebung, mit Bereibungen im oberen Drittel des Blattes. Das Bildnis führt uns vor Augen, daß die Künstlerin neben der korrekten Erfassung anatomischer Gegebenheiten auch virtuos den Charakter der Dargestellten einzufangen wußte.. Auch über die Malerin, Graphikerin und Gebrauchskünstlerin Johanna Luise Groppe ist nur wenig bekannt. Ihr Studium absolvierte sie seit 1896 in ihrer Geburtstadt bei J. Alberts (1860-1941), dann in München bei G. Schuster-Woldan (1864-1933). Sie beteiligte sich an Ausstellungen im Münchner Glaspalast 1904, 1907, 1919 und 1921 sowie 1908 an der Großen Ausstellung in Berlin. Vermutlich unternahm sie eine Reise nach Rom, wo u.a. Kopien nach Raffael, Landschaftsbilder und Genrestücke entstanden. Ihre Hauptthemen waren darüber hinaus Figurenbilder, Akt, Porträt und Stilleben. Sie war Mitglied in verschiedenen Vereinigungen wie Künstlerinnen-Verein München und Reichsverband bildender Künstler Deutschlands, Berlin.

        The Natives of Sarawak and British North Borneo

      London: Truslove & Hanson, , 1896. Based chiefly on the MSS. of the late Hugh Brooke Low, Sarawak Government Service. With a Preface by Andrew Lang. 2 volumes, large octavo. Original green "crazed" cloth, blind panels to the boards, title gilt to upper board and spine, top edge gilt, chocolate brown surface-paper endpapers. Numerous illustrations, many of them full-page, one coloured, one folding, folding map at the rear of Volume I. The lightest of shelf-wear, hinges remain uncracked, a very good set indeed. First edition "limited to 700 for sale." In his introduction Roth explains the origins of this work; "Some years ago my friend, Prof. E. B. Tylor, FRS, placed in my hands a parcel of MSS, the writing of which was so fine and obliterated that I was obliged throughout to use a strong magnifying glass in order to be able to read it. The papers, which were largely written in pencil, were partly destroyed by moisture and by insects. These very incomplete MSS. were the posthumous papers of an eccentric young gentleman named Hugh Brooke Low, who, however, possessed a very intimate knowledge of the natives… He was the son of Mr. (now Sir) Hugh Low, Secretary to the Governor of Labuan… Hugh was born at Labuan on the 12th May, 1849… He was sent home at an early age and received his education partly in Germany, and partly in England… He failed to pass the examination for the Indian Civil Service in 1869, and accepted an appointment which was offered to him by the present Raja of Sarawak, Sir Charles Brooke, G.C.M.G. He died in London on the 12th July, 1887… During the eighteen years of his service under the Government of Sarawak, he was stationed principally on the Rejang river, which gave him great opportunities of studying the Dyak and Kayan races inhabiting the banks of this noble river, but he had also experience of many other parts of the territory of the Raja of Sarawak, and his death was much regretted by their Highnesses the Raja and Ranee of Sarawak and by all the native tribes with whom he had so long been in close contact." Roth himself had already published an ethnographical study on the peasantry of Russia and his "compassionate, encyclopaedic work" (DAB) The Aborigines of Tasmania. The Natives of Sarawak was considered the standard work well into the twentieth century and remains an important contribution, and an extremely handsome piece of turn-of-the-century book production.

        Illustrations of Japanese Life, Vol. I & II (98 B&W Collotype Plates)

      Kelly & Walsh, Tokyo 1896 - Collotype plates by K. Ogawa and by descriptions by S. Takashima, 8vo (7 1/8 x 10 in - 18 x 25.7 cm), 32 plates (Vol I) + 68 plates (Vol II), black and white collotypes on crepe paper, bound Japanese style and silk thread ties. Each plate has a title and generally a paragraph of descriptive information written by S. Takashima. While the image areas vary slightly, the norm is 6~7 x 4 1/2~5 in. This is one in a series of photographic album type books under this same title published by K. Ogawa. The four books with the same title, each containing 12 color collotype plates, are seen much more frequently than this set. The two books in this set have a volume number printed on the cover. This is not the case with the four 12 plate books. ~ Condition . I would rate the books as in Good condition. The covers of both books are in Poor condition. The covers of Vol I are complete but worn and stained. The crepe paper is rolling over at the edges and there are numerous tears and creases, primarily along the edges. The covers on Vol II are in Fair (bad) condition. The front cover is complete but has considerable staining, creasing and tears. Additionally, the crepe paper is rolling over at the edges. The back cover is in tatters with pieces missing. The preliminary blank pages of Vol II have water staining. Internally the books are in Good+ condition. The collotype plates are clean and free of problems in the image area. These two books are a good candidate for rebinding. ~~ More information, including a listing of all plates, available on request. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

This book demonstrates the attention to design, type, and detail that would characterize the work of the Essex House Press. Bound in tan wrappers with yapped edges, printed with Ashbee's flower insignia to the front cover. Edges of covers show some fraying, as usual, else a near fine copy of a fragile book.

        Poems. Third Series

      Roberts Brothers, Boston 1896 - Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1896. Apparent second edition; Edited by Mabel Loomis Todd. Copyright page bears the designation "second edition", though this copy is otherwise identical to the first edition. This is the only such I've seen. 12mo, 200 pp., gilt decorated olive green cloth, beveled edges. Moderate wear to spine ends, corners a bit worn, darkening throughout spine, general light wear. Very Good, tightly bound and with bright cover gilt. Please see scan. Very scarce example of an exemplary collection of poems by Emily Dickinson, who, though she wrote somewhere between 1,200 and 1,800 poems in her life, disliked publicity so much that no more than ten of her poems were published during her life, and only three or four of those with her advance knowledge. The first collection of her poems to see print, Poems, was published in 1890, four years after her death in 1886. That was followed by Poems - Second Series [1890/91]and then in 1896 by this collection, Poems - Third series. Her fame grew later, and her name was not well-known until some forty years after her death. Nice, fine condition plate-block of four 8-cent Emily Dickinson stamps loose-laid within.

        The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer. Kelmscott Press edition

      Hammersmith The Kelmscott Press 1896. G : in good condition without dust jacket as issued. Holland-backed spine darkened commensurate with age. Boards with soiling. Front inner hinge cracked. Occasional off-setting, otherwise contents VG. In blue boxed case Limited Edition [425] Holland-backed spine on original blue hardback boards 430mm x 300mm (17" x 12"). ii, 554pp. Eighty-seven woodcut illustrations after Edward Burne-Jones with title, borders and initials designed by William Morris. The masterpiece of the Kelmscott Press. The work encapsulates William Morris's intent to challenge all he thought wrong with the Industrial Revolution - the reduction of the individual craftsmanship of past times to a diminished, soulless template for the machine production of consumerism. Derived from exemplars of medieval manuscripts and early printed books, the works of the Kelmscott Press enshrined principles based on beauty and aesthetics - Morris's final challenge to a changing world.
