London 1897." [Marie Christiansen: Coloured Drawings of Egyptian Paintings in the British Museum on 20 Sheets] Eloquent imagery of Ancient Egyptian paintings which adorned stately mausoleums are skilfully represented in vivid ink drawings by a nineteenth century artist and enthusiast who evidently spent considerable time observing the display of antiquity acquired by the British Museum only seventy years earlier. The work features paintings of mythical gods and goddesses illustrated on mummy boxes, Egyptian civilians bringing offerings, as well as a mural painting and fresco from an important tomb in ancient Thebes. Most captions state dynastic periods and origin. Deities here include Nut or Neuth - the goddess of the sky in the Ennead of Egyptian mythology; Osiris, eldest son of Nut - usually identified as the god of the afterlife, the underworld and the dead; and Hapi - the god of the annual flooding of the Nile; From the tomb chapel of Nebamun, 18th Dynasty (c.1350 BC), paintings show Nebamun inspecting flocks of geese and herds of cattle, a farmer surveying field boundaries on his behalf, and garden scenes. Nebamun was a scribe and the accountant in charge of grain at the great Temple of Amun at Karnak. [In the 1820s the British Museum acquired 11 wall-paintings from the tomb chapel of a wealthy Egyptian official called Nebamun. The depictions are highly symbolic and thematically related to a joyful afterlife and are some of the most famous works of art from Ancient Egypt. Excavated in a time before systematic archaeology, the tomb is thought to have been in the northern part of the necropolis of Dra Abu el-Naga, on the West Bank of the Nile at Thebes, although the collector, Egyptologist Henry Salt, never revealed the location.] .

Ejemplar en buen estado de conservación. Apreciado facsimilar de la monumental obra de Cervantes Saavedra obra cumbre de la literatura española y universal. Donde se plasmó la grandiosidad de Cervantes y de la lengua española en su originalidad temática, la riqueza de la obra es tal que, en sí misma, la cual resulta inagotable, ya que se representa una cosmovisión especular del mundo en su época. Es probable que la novela fuera recibida en su tiempo como un libro de entretenimiento, como regocijante libro de burlas o como una divertidísima y fulminante parodia de los libros de caballerías. Los hechos, se presentan poco entrelazados entre sí. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Child-World [Signed Association Copy] [A Child World]

      Indianapolis: The Bowen-Merrill Company, 1897. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +. A Very Good + copy of the first edition, first printing -- with the variations required for the first printing (spine ends pushed, several pushes to the board edges, small spot to the spine tail), SIGNED AND DATED BY JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY as follows: "To Joseph Knight, Esq. / With all hale greetings and regards / - James Whitcomb Riley / Indianapolis, Ind., USA / Oct. 9: 1896", and housed in a custom-made slipcase with a buttressed spine lettered, decorated, and dated in gilt. This copy retains the original deep red to the spine and boards and is without the fading usually seen with this title, and the top edge is gilded. Published subsequent to the UK edition (1896), the book's inscription resides on a tipped-in leaf which Riley prepared for this and some other copies before the books were bound and ready for distribution, such inserted leaves being dated Oct. 9: 1896 as is the case with this copy. Clearly Riley had decided prior to the volume's completion to whom he wanted to present such copies and such persons naturally would have been those who were his close friends and associates. This copy carries the bookplate of the inscribee, Joseph Knight, to the front pastedown. Tipped in above Knight's bookplate is that of George A. Zabriskie and his son's name is embossed near the top of the first front free endpaper. Joseph Knight was editor of "Notes and Queries", the drama critic of the "Globe" in London, and a theater historian. (The University of Indiana holds correspondence between Riley and Knight.) George A. Zabriskie was President of the New York Historical Society and an expert bookbinder, and Fosdick Zabriskie was his son. A Very Good + copy with an excellent Provenance, INSCRIBED, SIGNED, PLACED, AND DATED BY JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY.
