        The Mollusca of the Persian Gulf, Gulf of Oman, and North Arabian Sea.

      London, 1897-1916.. 3 vols.: I. Persian Gulf Mollusca / The Mollusca of the Persian Gulf, Gulf of Oman and North Arabian Sea. II. Persian Gulf papers - Index / The Mollusca of the Persian Gulf, Gulf of Oman, and Arabian Sea, as evidenced mainly through the collections of Mr. F. W. Townsend, 1893-1906; with descriptions of new species. III. Mollusca of Bombay Madras Andamans etc. / Papers on the Mollusca of Bombay: Karachi: Aden: Madras: Torres Straits: Andamans: etc. Also on Conus: Cypraea: Harpa: etc. 50 original works by Melvill and 11 by other authors, all on shells or brachiopods from the western Indian Ocean.. The British malacologist J. C. Melville (1845-1929), son of the like-named Under-Secretary of State for India and grandson of the last secretary of the East India Company, James Cosmo Melvill (1845-1929) described more than 1,000 new molluscs between 1881 and 1928. "Perhaps Melvill is best remembered for his Persian Gulf, Gulf of Oman and Arabian Sea work, for by himself or with co-authors he described nearly 600 new species or varieties from that region" (A. Trew). The present three-volume set deals exactly with that material, mostly collected by F. W. Townsend, captain of the Cable-Ship "Patrick Stewart", when inspecting the Eastern Telegraph Company's cables at the bottom of the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman. Townsend sent the shells that were found on the cables first to G. B. Sowerby, later directly to Melvill, and all were described by the latter, usually together with the Assistent Keeper of Zoology at the Manchester Museum, Robert Standen (1854-1925). In contrast to many contemporaries, Melvill took great care in illustrating his new species. The three "Melvill papers" volumes are titled on spine and title pages as cited above. The compiler of these three volumes has added, in neat handwriting, the titles, for each volume a list of the contents by title, a consecutive page numbering and an index to all the new and illustrated species and genera. It is unknown who compiled these volumes, though it could have been John Read le Brockton Tomlin, "a protege of J. C. Melvill [...] Tomlin added to the collection considerably and also collected a unique library of molluscan books and reprints" (Trew). In all there are 50 original works by Melvill, and 11 by other authors (e.g. E. A. Smith, R. Standen, and G. B. Sowerby III) but also dealing with shells or brachiopods from the western Indian Ocean, often relating directly to Melvill papers. One is F. W. Townsend "Notes on shell collecting in the northern parts of the Arabian Sea, including the Gulf of Oman and Persian Gulf in the years 1890-1914". The vast majority are original offprints; some, mostly smaller papers were taken from magazines and carefully mounted on blank paper. Each of the offprints itself is a rarity, and a collection like this one is absolutely unique. - A. Trew, Melvill's new molluscan names. Vol I: 1897(b); 1897(g); 1898(k); 1899(j), 1899(k); 1903(c); 1903(e), 1903(f), 1904(a); 1904(b); 1904(c), 1904(d); 1904(e); 1904(f); 1904(g); 1904(h); 1905(a); 1906(a); 1906(b); 1906(c); 1906(d); 1910(c); 1910(d); 1912(b); 1917(a); 1917(d); 1917(f); 1918(c). - Vol. II: 1901(d); 1907(e); 1928. - Vol. III: 1886; 1893(e); 1893(f); 1894(b), 1895(a); 1895(c); 1896(b); 1897(h); 1898(a), 1898(c); 1898(i); 1899(a); 1899(g), 1899(h); 1900(b); 1901(e); 1903(a); 1905(b); 1916(a).

        The Beetle

      London, Skeffington. 1897, 1897. First Edition. 8vo. Publisher's dark red cloth titled in gilt to spine and front board. Decorated in green and black with a striking egyptian eye motif and, naturally enough, a large beetle to the front board. Faded to spine, bumped to spine ends, minor edgewear, a strong, handsome copy of a scarce book. Internally clean, patterned endpapers, frontis. with tissue guard, front inner paper-joint cracked. This copy bears the ownership inscription of the publisher Harold E. Skeffington, dated September 1897, to the half title. One of the best selling novels of the late nineteenth century; The Beetle remained in print for over 60 years, effortlessly outselling its now far better known competition, a certain Dracula being amongst them. Subsequent literary endeavours by people like Boothby and Rohmer clearly owe a lot to Marsh's really rather high calibre tale of evil oriental interlopers with insidious powers and sinister intentions. A handsome association copy of an important book.

He described it as "delightful" and "well he might, for... in its design, paper, bindings, and, of course, with Beardsley's wonderful pictures and cover design, make it one of the finest of all the "Smithers books" (James G. Nelson, Publisher to the Decadents: Leonard Smithers in the careers of Beardsley, Wilde, Dowson, 2000, p. 157).

        THE WELL-BELOVED (First American Edition IN ORIGINAL 1897 DUST JACKET)

      Harper & Brothers 1897 - Hardy, Thomas. THE WELL-BELOVED: A sketch of a temperament. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1897. First American Edition. Original green publisher's cloth, gilt. Etched Frontispiece with tissue guard, and a map, both featuring Hardy's fictional Wessex. A Fine, bright copy with only the most minor of blemishes in an ORIGINAL 1897 DUST JACKET (slightly stained and a little browned, expert paper restoration to the verso). THE WELL-BELOVED, Thomas Hardy's 14th and last novel, is a fantasy which tells the story of sculptor Jocelyn Pierston and his love for three generations of women. Although one of Hardy's minor works, it is unfairly underrated. The theme of man's universal experience of pursuing unattainable perfection in a mate is pure Hardy at its core. Any 19th Century DJ on a Thomas Hardy first edition is exceedingly rare, we know of only a handful. Purdy (p. 96). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Invisible Man

      C. Arthur Pearson, London 1897 - Stunning example of this very scarce first edition of HG Wells' classic. Gilt lettering very clear although spine cloth is a tiny bit sun faded. Vignette in black on front board. Very clean and crisp binding. Pages somewhat browned/yellowed, with very occasional minor foxing, more especially on prelims. This came from the library of AWF Fuller and the ffep carries a pencilled inscription, which is almost certainly in his hand, describing where the action of the story takes place and other references relevant to the story. Tiny chip, only noticeable on very close inspection, from lower half fore edge of ffep which has been repaired with a small piece of invisible book page professional quality tape.

        THE ANGEL OF THE TENEMENT

      1897 - MARTIN, George Madden. [Pseudonym of Georgia May MADDEN]. THE ANGEL OF THE TENEMENT. NY: Bonnell, Silver & Co., 1897. Small 8vo., two-toned cloth with gilt-worked title & border on front cover. First Edition. Author's rare first book. Martin was a member of the "Author's Club," based in Louisville, Kentucky in the 1890s. The literary club met for mutual encouragement and criticism about their writing. Other members included authors Alice Hegan Rice and Annie Fellows Johnston; geographer Ellen Churchill Semple; and journalist Eva Madden (the author's sister). Ladies in the club eventually had a total of 50 published books to their credit. Martin had her greatest success with her second book "Emmy Lou: Her Book And Heart," published in 1902. This copy bears a signed ink presentation on the front endpaper: "Happy Christmas- To little Jeannette. With love from Mrs. Rice. December twenty-fifth, 1897." The inscription is not in the handwriting of Alice Hegan Rice but may be by a relative- perhaps her mother-in-law? I have been unable to locate any auction or Internet price records for this title and the Huntington Library in San Marino, California lists no copy in Wright's bibliography of the library's holdings. Very Good (small sections of cloth eroded very upped edges, bit of darkening to the white cloth spine). $750.00. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Meyers Konversations-Lexikon, 5. Auflage, Prachtausgabe, 17 + 4 Bände, Neuer Abdruck, 1897 - 1901.

      Leipzig und Wien, Bibliographisches Institut, 1897 - 1901.. Gänzlich neu bearbeitete und erweiterte Auflage. Grundwerk in 17 Bänden mit 17.800 Seiten. Enthalten sind 100.000 Artikel mit 10.500 Abbildungen, 1.088 Tafeln, davon 164 Farbtafeln, überwiegend Chromolithographien. Es erschienen noch vier Ergänzungsbände. Vollständiges Grundwerk (A - Z) in 17 Bänden sowie der Ergänzungsband 18 und die Bände 19 bis 21 (Jahres-Supplemente 1898/99, 1899/1900, 1900/01), somit vollständiges Exemplar in 21 Bänden. Es handelt sich hier um eine sehr seltene Prachtausgabe der Berliner Buchhandlung Körth, die im Kolonialstil der Zeit gestaltet wurde: Rotbraune Original-Halblederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln auf hellbraunem und rotem Rückenschild. Der Buchrücken mit aufwendigen figürlichen und geographischen Prägungen: Mittig ein Ensemble ausgerollter historischer Karten der fünf Kontinente; an den Kapitalen Köpfe indianisch-amerikanischer und afrikanischer Eingeborenen-Kulturen; Rückenschilder mit goldgeprägter floraler Umrankung, Kapitale mit Ornamentbändern; Buchdeckel mit strukturierten, lederähnlichen Bezügen und Lederecken; mehrfarbig marmorierter Buchschnitt; reich ornamentierte, vergoldete Vorsätze, wie sie Prachtausgaben vorbehalten sind. Die programmatische Gestaltung im Stile des Kolonial- und Entdecker-Zeitalters, das in Deutschland eine eigenes Literatur-Genre prägte, kann als besonderes Merkmal, ja als Alleinstellungsmerkmal dieser aufwendig gestalteten Prachtausgabe gelten.. Buchrücken allenfalls leicht berieben, am Kapital des ersten Bandes Einriß fachmännisch geschlossen; Deckelbespannung mit wenigen kleinen Abplatzungen; Bd. 21 mit sehr kleiner Läsion am vorderen Vorsatz; Seiten partiell etwas fleckig (vor allem erste Seiten, innere Seiten nur geringfügig oder gar nicht). In toto schönes Exemplar dieser einzigartigen Prachtausgabe, die wie keine andere den kolonialen Zeitgeist des späten 19. Jahrhunderts widerspiegelt. Liebhaberausgabe, wie es sie im antiquarischen Buchhandel, zumal als vollständiges Ensemble in 21 Bänden, sonst nicht zu finden ist. Zahlreiche weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).
