London: C. Arthur Pearson, 1897. FIRST EDITION. This is a major book by one of the most significant British authors at work during the final years of the 19th century and the first part of the 20th. The prolific and durable Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) is most famous for his imaginative fiction from the 1890s, works like the present volume, along with "The Time Machine" (1895), "The Island of Dr. Moreau" (1896), "War of the Worlds" (1898) and "When the Sleeper Awakes" (1899), all of which helped to establish Wells as a master of science fiction. By the time Wells died, he had published more than 100 books and earned his fame not only as a writer, but also as a minor prophet who accurately predicted war planes, tanks, the atomic bomb, and World War II. The present "scientific romance" is a retelling of Plato's "Ring of Gyges" parable, which asked if any reasonable man would still act morally if granted the power of invisibility. A rogue scientist has made himself invisible, but finds the life of the unseen more difficult than expected. He soon turns to crime, and plans a "Reign of Terror" before being brought to justice by a quick-thinking doctor. DNB notes that Wells "stands midway between the older traditions of the learned satire, the utopia, and the marvelous voyage, and the 20th-century growth of mass-entertainment technological fantasy." This fragile item is difficult to find in pleasing condition.. 200 x 133 mm. (7 1/2 x 4 7/8"). viii, 245, [1] pp., [1] leaf (ads). FIRST EDITION. Publisher's red cloth.

CRANE, Walter.) SPENSER, Edmund.
London: George Allen, 1895-1897 - 6 volumes, quarto. Original cream cloth, titles to spine gilt, titles to front cover red in decorative vignettes gilt, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, original pink covers bound in at front. Light soiling to covers, slight foxing to endpapers and endmatter. Double page illustrated title pages, woodcut front, head and tailpieces, all by Crane. First Crane edition, limited issue, one of 1,000 copies printed on handmade paper. Crane wrote his very own Spenserian stanza on his triumphant attempt to illustrate Spenser's great poem, which appears following the general title page in volume one: "Great Spenser's noble rhyme have I essayed / To picture, striving still, as faithful squyre, / Each faerie knight to serve, in armes arrayde / 'Gainst salvage force, and deathful dragons dire, / Or Blatant Beast with poisonous tongues of fire; / To limn the Lion mylde with Una fayre, / The False Duessa, and the Warlike Mayd. / "Be Bolde," I read, and did this emprise dare, / And now the door is oped, so let the masque forth fare." A beautifully illustrated production, encompassing both an Art Nouveau and an Arts and Crafts aesthetic.

Mild cockling to front board, tips lightly rubbed and bumped, page-edges tanned, contents toned, inner hinges reinforced. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, an excellent association copy of Russell's first published book of philosophy, with the pencilled ownership inscription of noted Cambridge philosopher R. B. Braithwaite, dated 1923, to the front free endpaper. Braithwaite (1900-1990), then a scholar at King's College, originally studied mathematics before switching to the moral sciences tripos for his final year, the year of the inscription. He was subsequently elected to a fellowship at the college, which he retained through a long career in which he founded the faculty of the history and philosophy of science with Herbert Butterfield, and worked "in the Cambridge tradition of scientifically informed philosophy exemplified by Bertrand Russell, J. M. Keynes, Frank Ramsey, and C. D. Broad" (ODNB). Based on Russell's Trinity College fellowship dissertation, An Essay on the Foundations of Geometry "provides a partial defence of Kant's theory that the truth of geometry is a necessary condition of all possible experience Russell later dismissed the book as a foolish and immature work, and its central claims have not been accepted by either mathematicians or philosophers.

In 1892 Bell (1868-1926) set out on what proved to be a formative journey to Tehran, where her uncle Sir Frank Lascelles was British minister. "Having studied Persian with the oriental scholar Sandford Arthur Strong during the winter prior to her journey, she embarked on a verse translation of the mystical poet Hafiz to which she brought an insightful interpretation of the East's cultural depth and of the underlying ambiguities of Hafiz's poems. Her translation received a favourable critical reception on its publication and was long regarded as the best free-verse translation into English" (ODNB).

London, William Heinemann, 1897. 8vo. Original dark red cloth, spine lettered in giltt; pp. xv, 718, [2]; four folding facsimiles, minimal wear to binding; provenance: contemporary Liverpool ownership inscription. Scarce first edition of the first full-length book to tap into the history of the 'national sin' (p. v). - We could not find any information about the author, despite - exactly because - he wrote this substantial book. 'History of the Liverpool Privateers... is one of the most detailed 19th century accounts of the slave trade. It gathers original source materials which feature comparative tables of figures and profits connected with the trade, newspaper articles and advertisements, and facsimiles of manuscript documents, including ship logs.

[...] On page 680 a comparative table shows the numbers of ships that left Liverpool, London and Bristol for Africa, to board African people and transport them to America as slaves. This movement is part of the 'trade triangle' in the transatlantic slave trade. The table, covering years 1795-1804, reveals that the port of Liverpool dominated the slave trade in the late 18th century. In 1798, for example, ships from Liverpool potentially boarded 53,051 Africans ("Slaves Allowed"), compared with figures of 2,650 and 1,433 from Lo … [Click Below for Full Description]
