Kipling, Rudyard
D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1897. Orange-brown cloth, decorated in gilt, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Some foxing to text and endleaves, cabinet-size print of an early photo of Kipling mounted to verso of preliminary blank via small corner slits, otherwise a very good, externally brilliant copy, in somewhat faded and edgeworn decorative dust jacket with small chips at spine ends and corners and some general tanning and soiling. Second American trade edition (or printing), dated the year following the first US trade edition (which preceded the UK edition). The dust jacket for the 1896 printing is noted by Tanselle, and may or may not be identical to this dust jacket, though one must accept the likelihood that at some point this example will end up married to a copy of the 1896 impression. It does replicate the binding design (as the first dust jacket does) and includes the designer's initials, a feature that was dropped from the second edition/impression binding. See Richards (Color Images) A92b and A92c for examples of this binding and this dust jacket. STEWART 139 (ref). RICHARDS A92 (note). TANSELLE 96.14+.

SPENSER, Edmund (Walter Crane)
George Allen, 1895-97, London, 1897. Six volumes, quarto, original light cream pictorial cloth stamped in gilt and red, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, original red on pink illustrated card covers bound in. Fore and bottom page edges tanned; light yellowing to free endpapers from binding; very light spine yellowing; soft bruise to upper inner corner of front covers; volume I has neat professional repairs to inner hinges, rear joint, and spine ends, with light darkening at ends, gilt imprint a little flaked; volume VI has one very small brown spot on the spine; volume II has a hairline crack to front inner hinge neatly repaired; a fine set otherwise, no owner names or plates, the vulnerable white cloth remarkably clean. Edition of 1000 copies on handmade paper printed by Charles Whittingham of the Chiswick Press. 88 full- page woodcut illustrations (one double-page), 132 head and tailpieces, numerous woodcut initials, uniform illustration to front covers. Edited by the eminent book colllector, bibliographer, and forger Thomas J. Wise. A very handsome production of this great classic of late 16th century English literature, an epic poem, one of the longest in the language, and still never completed. Considered by many to be Walter Crane's best work in black & white, it was his most extensive commission as a book illustrator, taking three years to complete. Note: heavy set, extra postage will be required. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

GOZZI Gasparo
Barbera, Firenze 1897 - 16°, pp.XV-607-1 b. T, cart. recente, tss. in pelle con tit. oro al dorso. Lievi fioriture e ingiallimenti. Una nota a lapis. Gasparo Gozzi, fratello di Carlo, di nobile famiglia veneta, ma sempre in gravi ristrettezze economiche per la numerosa prole che ebbe dalla poetessa Luisa Bergalli, si dedicò a varie attività e tra nel 1760-61, anche alla pubblicazione di 3 riviste di novità e traduzioni librarie e teatrali e fatti di cronaca, come è descritto nella pref. di questo vol.di E.Spagni: "La riforma del costume e dell'arte non ebbe nel secolo scorso apostolo più convinto di G.Gozzi. Il Mondo Morale, la Gazzetta Veneta e l'Osservatore rappresentano 3 diversi tentativi. queste opere, avendo tutte forma periodica, di man in mano che il contatto col pubblico gliene dimostrò i difetti o l'insufficienza, egli. non ebbe riguardo a lasciar a mezzo l'una e sostituirvi l'altra."(p.V) e dopo un esame dei fallimenti dei primi 2 periodici: ". l'Osservatore, di cui subito dopo cominciò la pubbli-cazione - il 1° numero uscì il 4 feb.1761 - fu opera più vitale. (Il Gozzi) compose il nuovo giornale sullo stampo dello Spettatore inglese. con scritture. le quali per brevità e varietà erano più gradite al pubblico."(p.VII-VIII) e prosegue con la storia delle alterne vicende del periodico, che terminò la pubblicazione nel gen.1762, e con le differenze che furono apportate all'ed. orig. del 1761 nelle ristampe successive, per rendere più organico il testo. Questo vol. raccoglie tutto il pubblicato dell'Osservatore, dal 1° fasc., 4 feb.1761, al 18 ago.1762, diviso in 6 p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kipling, Rudyard
Macmillan, London, 1897. First edition of Kipling's richly detailed tale of American deep-sea fishing, with frontispiece and 21 illustrations by I.W. Taber. Octavo, original blue cloth eleganted stamped in gilt. In near fine condition with only light wear to the extremities. Housed in a contemporary half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example. Like his two Jungle Books, Kipling wrote this morality tale of life aboard a New England fishing boat while living near Brattleboro, Vermont, his wife's hometown. The book thus contains "something of his feelings about America-both his affection and his irritation" (Carpenter & Prichard, 296). "This is the only book of Kipling's which is set entirely in America. All the characters are American. Not only that, but the heart of the book-its moral in a single sentence-is one of Kipling's main beliefs of this period expressed in terms essentially American, or perhaps more particularly New England. He put it later in verse: 'And the Gods of the Copy-book Maxims said: 'If you don't work you will die!' It is a saga of hard physical work in conflict with natural forces. It is a book which could hardly have been written by anyone who did not admire Huckleberry Finn; it is a book whose claim to survival rests mainly on detail, and it is all American detail" (Mason, 119).

Ashanti Company - Richard Burton Connection
Obuasi District, Ashanti [present-day Ghana],, 1897. Large manuscript map, circa 1897-1899, of the delineating a tract of land 100 square miles in the Obuasi District of Ashanti, which had just been acquired by The Ashanti Company [The Ashanti Goldfields Corporation] set up by owner Edwin Arthur Cade, and was at the time being prospected for gold. This is the first land purchased and worked by Cade and his firm. The property directly next to it is identified as a concession of Robert Bruce Napoleon Walker, a prospector for James Irvine's firm the Gold Coast Mining Company, of which Sir Richard Burton was a director. An original period map, hand drawn and hand coloured, annotated in manuscript, backed with linen, and measuring approximately 93 x 63 cm. Some age-toning and creasing, otherwise in very good condition, an early and significant colonial document from the goldfields of Ashanti. This map delineates the very first concession of land exploited for gold and owned by the Ashanti Company, formally called the Ashanti Goldfields Corporation, in a region trodden only seventeen years before by Burton and Cameron who predicted its prolific yield of gold and gems. As indicated on the present map, the property was bordered directly by a concession granted to "Bruce Walker" for gold prospecting on behalf of the Gold Coast Mining Company, the latter of which was owned by James Irvine who appointed Burton and Cameron as its directors. Sir Richard Francis Burton, together with Verney Lovett Cameron, were commissioned to explore the Ashanti region during the winter of 1881-1882, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mackau (de) Armand 1832 1918
- 6 lettres autographes signées 16 pp. 1/2 In-8 et in-16 octobre 1897-juin 1898 Papier à lettre de deuil à l’en-tête de la Chambre des Députés. bon Ces six lettres du député Armand de Mackau précèdent et suivent immédiatement sa réélection au siège de député de l'Orne, qui eut lieu le 8 mai 1898. Après avoir rallié les rangs boulangistes, il rejoint les bancs républicains en 1892. Dans cette correspondance, Mackau remercie chaleureusement son interlocuteur basé à Paris – alors que lui-même est le plus souvent dans sa circonscription normande – de son aide et de son engagement, notamment dans une affaire judiciaire : « Vous avez trop fait pour lutter contre les mauvaises dispositions de la cour pour que je ne me hâte de vous exprimer tous mes remerciements de vos éloquents efforts. » Le jour de l'élection, il réitère ses remerciements : « Je ne veux pas tarder à vous dire combien je suis touché et reconnaissant des sentiments que vous voulez bien m'exprimer. » et il ajoute : « Je sais jusqu'à quel point la vie entraine chacun d'entre nous à des devoirs divers qui absorbent notre vie et laissent à chacun très peu de liberté. » Député, il s'engage aux côtés de Georges Boulanger (1837/1891). Après la mort de ce dernier, il rallie des rangs républicains. Il est député de l'Orne de 1866 à 1870, puis de 1876 à sa mort. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
