        All-Fellows

      London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner and Co., Limited, 1896. London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner and Co., Limited,, 1896. Seven Legends of Lower Redemption. WIth insets in verse by Laurence Housman. Octavo. Original olive buckram, titles and decoration gilt to spine and front board, fore-edge and bottom edge untrimmed. Engraved frontispiece, decorated title page, and illustrated plates by Housman. Fading to spine and around board edges, nicks to tips, mild toning to endpapers, one plate loose, a very good copy. First edition, first impression. E. Nesbit's copy, inscribed to her by Housman on the first blank, "To [four-leaf clover drawing] (E Nesbit), from her entirely friendly LH. Dec: 10th 1896". This lovely presentation copy also bears Nesbit's bookplate, illustrated by Housman himself, attesting to their close friendship. Laurence Housman (1865-1959, brother of A. E. Housman) has been noted as a significant literary influence on Nesbit, since she often drew upon his imagination in developing plots - Nesbit's The Phoenix and the Carpet (1904), for example, is Housman's invention. This beautifully produced collection of Biblical and mythological retellings in verse and prose, engagingly illustrated, is a very early Housman work, published at the height of his career as a book illustrator and children's book author, though he would later turn his hand to a diverse range of projects, including novels, controversial plays, poetry, and political pamphlets. He, like Nesbit, was a committed socialist, as well as a pacifist and founding member of the Men's League for Woman's Suffrage. A lovely association.

It held an annual conference which was regarded as being representative of the opinion of the partys rank and file and was broadly the equivalent of a present-day party conference. The task of the NLF was to form new Liberal Associations based on popular representation. The NLF did try to produce some political literature early in its history but in 1887 the NLF and LCA collaborated in the establishment of the new Liberal Publications Department and these three organisations then worked closely together at the administrative heart of the party.

        Tolla

      Paris - Fasquelle, 1896. Paris - Fasquelle, 1896 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Leatherbound volume with gilt title to the spine, marble paper covered boards, and engraved frontispiece. Edmond Franois Valentin About (14 February 1828 16 January 1885), was a French novelist, publicist and journalist. He made his name as an entertaining anti-clerical writer. The satirical Le roi des montagnes (The King of the Mountains, 1856) is the best-known of his novels. In Tolla (1855), About was charged with drawing too freely on an earlier Italian novel, Vittoria Savelli (1841). This aroused prejudice against him, and he was the object of numerous attacks. The Lettres d'un bon jeune homme, written to the Figaro under the signature of Valentin de Quevilly, provoked more animosities. During the next few years, he wrote novels, stories, a play (which failed), a book-pamphlet on the Roman question, many pamphlets on other subjects of the day, innumerable newspaper articles, some art criticisms, rejoinders to the attacks of his enemies, and popular manuals of political economy, L'A B C du travailleur (1868), Le progrs (1864). His more serious novels include Madelon (1863), L'Infme (1867), the three that form the trilogy of the Vieille Roche (1866), and Le roman d'un brave homme (1880) a kind of counterblast to the view of the French workman presented in Zola's Assommoir. He is best remembered as a farceur, for the books Le nez d'un notaire (1862); Le roi des montagnes (1856); L'homme l'oreille casse (1862); Trente et quarante (1858); Le cas de M. Gurin (1862). This volume bears the the bookplate of The Right Hon. Sir Ronald Charles Lindsay. He served as British Ambassador to the United States of America from 1929 to 1939. He was the son of Sir James Lindsay (26th Earl of Crawford) and Emily Lindsay. In 1909 he married Martha Cameron. Martha was the daughter of James Donald Cameron and Elizabeth Sherman Cameron. Martha died in 1918. In 1924 he married Elizabeth Sherman Hoyt , daughter of Colgate Hoyt. Condition: The binding is tight and firm with both covers and all pages securely attached.

His works have been admired by many other writers, including Jorge Luis Borges, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Marcel Schwob, Vladimir Nabokov, J. M. Barrie, and G. K. Chesterton, who said of him that he seemed to pick the right word up on the point of his pen, like a man playing spillikins. Condition: In blue cloth bindings.
