        The Floure and the Leafe, The Boke of Cupide, God of Love, or the Cuckow and the Nightgale.

      (Hammersmith, 1896). - 6 1/2 x 9. 47 pages, with two half-page woodcut initial words. Contemporary blue morocco gilt by Macdonald, NY. Upper joint lightly rubbed, all else fine. With Harold Hugo's book label and the leather bookplate of Carson Brevoort.* A very handsome printing of this Middle English allegorical poem, written in a woman's voice, which was for many years attributed to Chaucer. One of 300 copies printed on handmade paper, in Troy and Chaucer types in black & red. *James Carson Brevoort, and his father Henry before him, built an important and distinguished library of Americana. Sabin dedicated the first volume of Bibliotheca Americana to him. However, he died before this volume was published; and his bookplate must have been placed in the book by another family member. "JAMES MACDONALD (1850-1920) was born in Scotland and trained as a bookbinder. In 1873 he came to the United States and worked with William Matthews, one of the pre-eminent binders. He left Matthews when he had saved enough money to start his own binding business. The Macdonald bindery, established in 1880, soon became one of the most sought-after binderies in this country."After the Club Bindery closed in 1909 "James Macdonald purchased the largest part of the tools" [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Introductory Treatise on the Lunar Theory.

      - Cambridge Univ Press 1896. Large octavo, very good in publisher's cloth (a touch worn at the tips); xvi,292pp and errata slip. First edition and quite scarce. It's a bit off the point but this extract from a letter on teaching by Professor W. Edwards Deming of New York University caught my attention: 'No luster of personality can atone for teaching error instead of truth. One of the finest teachers that I ever knew could hold 300 students spellbound, teaching what is wrong. The two poorest teachers that I ever had . were Professor Ernest Brown in mathematics at Yale and Sir Ronald Fisher at University College in London. Sir Ernest will be known for centuries for his work in lunar theory . People came from all over the world to listen to their impossible teaching, and to learn from them, and learn they did'.

      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.

He soon became a well-known figure on the London literary scene and founded the Rhymers' Club, which met in a room above Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese in Fleet Street. J. M. Dent's Everyman collection was his idea. He intended it to be "a collection of the great literatures, beginning with the English, so co-ordinated that if its readers began with one creative book, they would want another and another till the great public had the world literature within its grasp".
