1897. Folio (255 x 355 mm). 2 vols. bound as one (continuous page numbers). XII, (4), 336, (4), 337-"562" [= 552], (2) pp. With a frontispiece to each part, 51 plates with photolithographs and collographs, 1 tinted map and 660 wood engraved illustrations in text.

The work is divided into two volumes. The first deals with the history of Beijing, starting with the topography, followed by old myths and legends, the subsequent dynasties, and an extensive account on Christianity and the different missionary orders in China. In the second a description of the city is given, including the statues, gardens, churches and palaces that are to be found there. The photograph illustrations show unique views of the city in the late 19th century. - This copy is numbered 191 (of 800?). There also exists a deluxe edition, which contains an additional 10 coloured engravings. Due to its success the work was republished in France in 1900 and 1902. - With an inscription on half-title, dated 12 Oktober 1909. Slightly browned throughout, but otherwise a very good copy, wholly untrimmed. The original wrappers are included, but worn. Cordier (Sinica) 218.

BIGOT (Georges Ferdinand);
Tokyo 1897 In-4 oblong de 20 planches dont 1 de titre, cousu à la japonaise, couverture imprimée. Album de caricatures humoristiques des manifestations grandioses célébrant le jubilée de diamant de la reine Victoria. Bigot (1860-1927) arrive au Japon en 1882 et s'adapte très vite au mode de vie japonais ; il obtient assez rapidement un poste de professeur de dessin occidental, à l'école de l'armée de terre, avant d'enseigner le français. Vivant de l'intérieur l'occidentalisation très rapide du Japon au début de l'ère Meiji (1868-1912), il observe cette société bouillonnante et en publie caricatures et périodiques satiriques. Cette ère nouvelle, a transformé le Japon, jusque-là régi par un régime féodal, l'a ouvert aux étrangers et introduit de grands changements. Bigot refusa la vision idéalisée d'un Japon, en marche vers le modernisme, se heurtant au gouvernement japonais de plus en plus nationaliste, qui le contraindra à partir en 1899, quelques semaines avant la suppression des concessions étrangères. Ses publication sont finalement interdit à la vente dès 1900, tandis qu'en France elle l'ont tout simplement fait oublier. Les nombreux albums de caricatures et les différents périodiques qu'il laisse derrière lui vaudront bien des années plus tard d'être reconnu comme le " caricaturiste de l'ère Meiji". Il est considéré par la jeune génération de dessinateur de Manga, comme le père de ce genre. (Héléne Conevin, De la gravure à la caricature : le Japon de Meiji vu par G. Bigot, 1990).

Wells, H. G.
THE PLATTNER STORY AND OTHERS, Methuen, 1897, first edition, spine somewhat faded with dulled but still easily readable lettering, else a tight vg copy of what is most certainly among the authors most difficult first editions to locate. (The previously published work of Wells was THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU, which was met with such horror by the English reading public, that Wells' entire writing career seemed to be jeopardized. Hence his next publication, this very title, a collection of some his best short stories, was issued in a small quantity and sold poorly to a highly suspect and weary audience).
