WHARTON, Edith, & Ogden Codman.
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1897 - Square octavo. Original marbled paper-covered boards, paper spine label, top edge green, other untrimmed. Housed in a custom-made red cloth solander box. Ownership inscriptions of "Grizel Boude 1935" and "Aurora Carlier Christmas 1960". Spine sunned and a little rubbed, old pale dampstain at head of covers and a number of gatherings. Decorative title page (with tissue-guard), 56 monochrome plates. First edition, first printing, in Garrison's Binding B ("priority undetermined"). Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Vernon Lee from Edith Wharton January 1898". An important association copy: the recipient is the art historian Violet Paget (1856-1935) who wrote under the pseudonym of Vernon Lee. "Wharton made few friendships with other women writers, and Vernon Lee, brilliant, loquacious, difficult, eccentric and mannish (she wore 'the style preferred by intellectual lesbians - a man's shirt, foulard and velvet jacket over a long skirt'), was not to be a lifelong friend. But just when Wharton needed it, she was a perfect guide to Italy and an inspiring intellectual example. Wharton often told Vernon Lee what an important guide she was to her" (Hermione Lee, Edith Wharton, 2013, p. 97). Wharton's Italian Villas and their Gardens (1904) was dedicated to Vernon Lee. Hermione Lee comments that The Decoration of Houses, Wharton's second book, following the unprocurable Verses of 1878, "sold well, was reprinted, and had a marked influence on house-design in America" (Chapter 5).

KIPLING, Rudyard.
London: Macmillan & Co., Limited,, 1897. A Story of the Grand Banks. Crown octavo. Original blue cloth, titles and decorations to spine and front cover gilt, black coated endpapers, gilt edges. With the dust jacket. Housed in a blue quarter morocco slipcase and pale blue chemise. Frontispiece (with tissue-guard) and 21 illustrations by I. W. Taber. Jacket spine and panels only very slightly toned, a few neat tape repairs on verso, short vertical hole at fold of spine and back panel, binding spine only slightly rolled. An exemplary copy. First UK edition, following by a little over a month after the US edition published on 16 September 1897 (Richards). "The story first appeared in serial form in McClure's Magazine, November, 1896, to May, 1897, with twenty-five illustrations by I. W. Taber, and Pearson's Magazine, December, 1896, to April, 1897, with forty-one illustrations by I. W. Taber and Fred T. Jane" (Stewart). "Kipling thought he'd written a great story. He wrote to Conland [Dr. James Conland, the dedicatee], after the book had begun to appear serially, 'I tell you that tale will be a snorter'" (Gidmark, ed., Encyclopaedia of American Literature of the Sea and Great Lakes, 2001, p. 71). A quite dazzling copy in the rare dust jacket - since 1935 only some ten copies with the dust jacket have appeared at public auction, in condition ranging from "defective" to "splendid" - this copy decidedly at the latter end of the spectrum.

GARCIA Y CUBAS, Antonio (1832-1912).
Mexico: Cadena y Ca., 1897. Folio (21 x 14 inches). 30 double-page chromolithograph regional maps of Mexico, each within broad silver border and fully colored, each map with integral finger tab titled in contemporary manuscript (title-page excised, quite browned). Contemporary half brown sheep, black cloth, gilt (very worn). Provenance: Contemporary ink stamp of G. Águila on verso of each map; with Dorothy Sloan, December 11th, 2009, lot 16 Exceptionally rare, in any condition, first published in 1886 by Debray under the same title, but with the addition of the silver borders which obscure the original 1886 title and imprint that are part of the original plate. Only two copies recorded on OCLC: UT Austin (Benson) and Getty. Each regional map is very detailed, with a key to towns, haciendas, ranchos, mines, anchorages, roads, and railroads, waterways, lakes, soundings, and mountain ranges. The map of the Federal District is decorated with eight vignettes showing floor plans of several buildings, Mexico City in pre-Hispanic times, a modern street plan, and Mexican antiquities. Several of the maps also have insets, such as the one of Guerrero, which has an inset of the "Puerto de Acapulco," and Sinaloa, with an inset of "Mazatlán." Recent realignments of state borders are labelled and shown in red (e.g. Nuevo León). "This atlas is emblematic of the progress and development in Mexico during Porfirio Díaz’s tenure as President. One such feature, for example, is the depiction of railroads, either existing or under consideration. As the map of Oaxaca shows, the elusive cross-Tehua … [Click Below for Full Description]

UNKNOWN.
ABOARD THE AMERICAN SHIP CONQUEROR: (1897). 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. On offer is a sensational, original late 19th Century handwritten manuscript relic of the noted American Ship 'Conqueror' being a 126 page journal of a New York to Sydney New South Wales voyage from March 4th 1897 through June 22nd 1897. The unidentified writer does a super job on the narrative the first month or so but maintains course and weather information throughout the voyage and then some more personal narrative and observations a few weeks before landfall. And while the writer is unknown we can state the person was a passenger, not crew, but a passenger of some experience aboard a ocean going vessel with some ease at nautical terms and descriptions. The voyage was one of import to the writer and his descendents as the book was recently, professionally rebound in beautiful wood covers, calf on the spine and a sparkling gilt title to the spine. The approximately 9 x 7¼ x 1¼ inch book is overall VG.. Manuscript. Book Condition: Very Good

DONOVAN (Dick [i e , J E Preston Muddock] )
By Dick Donovan Author of 'The Man-hunter,' 'Tracked and Taken,' 'Caught at Last,' 'A Detective's Triumphs,' 'Vidocq,' etc[.] London, Chatto & Windus, 1897. Advertisement leaf precedes half-title; 8pp. text-paper advertisements, probably printed conjugate with prelims., followed by publisher's inserted catalogue, 32pp., at ens, dated Feb. 1897 and advertising this volume as 'shortly'; pp.[viii]+304+8; vertically fine-ribbed navy blue cloth ruled and elaborately blocked silver on front cover and spine; end-papers printed with leaf-and-frond pattern in olive green; top- and fore- edges uncut, lower-edges rough-trimmed. Very slight rubbing to cloth at extreme head of spine (affecting the top 2mm); two leaves of catalogue opened a little roughly, and catalogue lightly enbrowned; nonetheless a virtually fine copy with none of the usual oxydation of the silver blocked on the spine. Copies are also known in which the back cover is blocked with the publisher's monogram device in blind. They have the same catalogue, and were presumably of simultaneous issue. Most of the stories are cases of the celebrated Russian detective as related to fellow detective Dick Donovan. The last story, "The Clue of the Dead Hand," features detective Peter Brodie and has a Scottish setting. It tells of a murder and a simultaneous mysterious disappearance at Corbie Hall, "a strange, weird sort of place..." that has "an eeriness about it...calculated to make one shudder." As much a rationalized ghost story as a detective story, it also involves male impersonation. Glover and Greene, Victorian Detective Fi … [Click Below for Full Description]
