        CRUISE OF THE CACHALOT, Round the World After Sperm Whales

      London: Smith, Elder and Co, 1898. Scarce First Edition of the Author's First Book. With frontispiece and 7 additional illustrations on plates and with a folding map. 8vo, publisher's original royal blue cloth gilt lettered on the spine and with a whale in gilt on the upper cover. xx, 379 pp. A very fine, bright, handsome and clean copy, with none of the common spotting or toning at all, the cloth vivid and fresh, a bit of minor refurbishment to the meeting of the rear pastedown and free-fly. SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF A CLASSIC OF WHALING ADVENTURE. Kipling had this to say of it: "It is immense--there is no other word. I've never read anything that equals it in its deep sea wonder and mystery...." Bullen was first mate on the Cachalot and the book covers his adventures on his first whaling mission from being stuck in New Bedford with no ship to witnessing an epic battle between a sperm whale and giant squid in the East Indies. A very interesting glimpse into a way of life lost to time.

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force, An Episode of Frontier War, the first printing of the Colonial edition with the Indian errata slip

      London: Longmans, Green, & Co., 1898. First Colonial edition. Hardcover. This is the scarce first edition, first printing of the “Colonial Library” issue of Churchill's first book, bearing the unusual and rarely seen Indian errata slip arranged personally by Churchill. The author's first book recounts his experiences when attached to Sir Bindon Blood's punitive expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. First printing copies of the Colonial issue were produced in small numbers simultaneously with the Home Issue. The harsher climate and condition of the colonies meant low survival rates and often poor condition for those few examples that survived. Complicating matters for collectors, there were no fewer than 10 different editions, printings, and binding variations for the very small number of Colonial issues ultimately produced from 1898 to 1901. Here is the important first printing of the Colonial issue made still more scarce and desirable by the presence of the rare Indian errata slip unique to this particular Colonial issue. Publication of the first edition of 1898 was arranged by Churchill's uncle while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Per Cohen in his Bibliography: "Colonial Library copies are known with an unusual errata slip, which was prepared in India on or about 7 April 1898. It was, therefore, in all likelihood available in first edition copies in India before the domestic errata slips were available in London and certainly before the domestic errata slips were available in India." (Cohen p.14). Churchill was still serving in India at the time. In a 22 March 1898 letter to his mother, Churchill lamented the "gross & fearful blunders" of the first edition and stated: "I may catch the Indian edition, in which the absurdities would be most laughed at." Evidence indicates that Churchill personally arranged for the printing of the Indian slips, paid for them himself, and had them tipped into the Colonial copies before distribution. They are printed on distinctive laid, watermarked paper and contain four additional corrections not found on the domestic errata slip, as well as small differences in the other corrigenda. Given the provenance of the Indian errata slip, we can be confident that this copy originally sold in India, where the young author was serving at the time. This first printing of the colonial issue is also noteworthy for being the only of the many books published in Churchill's lifetime with the “L.” for “Leonard” appearing on both the binding (spine and lower front cover) and the title page. This is an original, unrestored copy, meaning it has not been rebacked or had endpapers replaced like so many of the copies that survive. Condition is very good, particularly given the inherent rigors associated with colonial provenance. The binding is square, the hallmark greenish-gray color still distinct on both the covers and spine, the striking front cover illustrated in blue only modestly scuffed, the spine gilt still bright. We note wear to corners and spine ends, light overall scuffing and soiling, and a small, stray ink mark to the center front hinge. The contents are improbably bright and clean for a colonial issue, with only a few trivial spots and no previous ownership marks. The frontispiece and original tissue guard are intact, the maps present and properly folded. The contents are firmly attached to the binding, despite a cosmetic split following the front free endpaper that exposes the intact mull beneath. Overall, a well-preserved and completely original copy of this first printing of the first Colonial Library issue, sold in India while Churchill was still there. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.2.c, Woods/ICS A1(ab.1), Langworth p.15.

      Harper & Brothers, New York & London 1898 - Oblong small quarto. Cloth backed pictorial paper boards. Illustrated throughout. Edges and fore-tips shelfworn and bumped, endsheets a bit foxed, boards a bit dust darkened, but a good copy of a fragile book. First edition. Loosely-inserted is an autograph letter, signed ("Frost") from the artist, 3pp, 8vo, on the blue printed stationery of Convent, Morris County, New Jersey, 2 May, 1898. To "Frank," inviting him to play golf at the Morris County course, and to view some art on which Frost is currently employed: "I am at work on some golf caricatures that I would like to have you see, but I wouldn't let you see unless you saw them in my studio: I think they are pretty good and I see a good scheme [?] in them ." Further, Frost refers to his own prowess as a golfer (" . I can't hit a balloon yet; played Saturday and today and am pretty rank.") and thanks his correspondent for allowing him to send the "Bicycle drawing" to him, adding: "I feel sure any idea you have for a book is a good idea, and I can almost say I am ready to go with [?] it." Beneath his signature, Frost has drawn a caricature of himself playing golf, captioned: "This is the way the ball looks so I hit it on its top." Letter slightly soiled and worn; edges browned; some slight marking on verso, else very good. The recipient of this letter may be the author, Frank R. Stockton, whose property in Morristown, New Jersey, "The Holt," adjoined Frost's own property at Convent Station. Frost illustrated a number of Stockton's stories, and was one of the latter's few intimate friends. REED, p.158.

        Robur le conquérant. Un billet de loterie. Frritt - Flacc

      Hetzel 1898 - - Hetzel, Paris 1898, Grd. in-8 (18,5x28cm), 220pp. ; 198pp., relié. - Nouvelle édition illustrée de 87 dessins par Benett et Roux. Le tirage est toujours celui du premier cartonnage et porte la date de 1886. Succédant au cartonnage au globe doré de type 1 et 2, ce troisième cartonnage au globe doré a bénéficié d'un faible tirage pour ce titre, il s'avère très rare. Cartonnage d'éditeur dit "Au globe doré", de type 3, avec le second plat de type Engel h, avec les lettres entrelacées JH sur fond noir. Belle première plaque aux ors rutilants, mais le cadre rouge de la bordure portant de nombreux frottements, mouchetant la percaline rouge ; l'alambic comporte également une zone grattée. Le dos, dont les ors sont encore bien marqués a subi les mêmes grattements à de nombreux endroits. Coiffes légèrement repliées. Beau second plat avec quelques salissures. Bien que légèrement repliés, les coins sont solides et pointus. Quelques rousseurs pâles éparses. Bel exemplaire dans l'ensemble. Roman d'anticipation dans lequel trois membres d'un club aéronautique sont enlevés pour un voyage à bord d'une machine volante digne du Nautilus. Jules Verne donnera une suite tardive à ce roman dans le titre : Maître du monde. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] New illustrated edition of 87 drawings by Benett and Roux. The draw is still that of the first carton and is dated 1886. Publisher cartonnage said "To the golden globe", type 3, with the second flat type Engel h, with intertwined letters JH on a black background. Beautiful first plate with gleaming golds, but the red frame of the border carrying many rubs, speckling red percaline; the still also has a scraped area. The back, whose golds are still well marked suffered the same scratches in many places. Headdresses slightly folded. Nice second board with some stains. Although slightly folded, the corners are solid and pointed. Some pale foxing scattered. 220pp. ; 198pp. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        La Lithographie originale en couleurs. Couverture et estampe de Pierre Bonnard.

      Paris; publication de L'Estampe et l'affiche, 1898. First edition. 22,5x19 cm. (2), 43, (2, 3 blanks) pp. + lithographed frontispiece. Later tan boards with black leather label on spine. Both wrappers preserved. The spine label has slightly worn edges. Foot of spine is a bit bumped, and there is a 9 cm long crack in lower front joint. The rear wrapper is insignificantly soiled. Contents are very fine. The frontispiece and the front wrapper are both lithographies by Bonnard. The book was printed in 1000 copies, of which 200 were numbered copies on Holland paper, and 800 unnumbered copies on vellum paper. This copy belongs to the latter group. “Only Mellerio perceived color lithography as the most consistent common denominator of the avant-garde, regardless of philosophical or aesthetic bent – symbolist, pointillist or realist. His book systematically supported this view with critical analyses of the work of more than forty artists while documenting the publishers, the printers, and publications which promoted the medium.” (Cate and Hitchings, The Color Revolution. Color Lithography in France 1890-1900, pp. 74). “Because of its cover and multi-color frontispiece, this book is often considered the first French livre de peintre with original color lithographs.” (Hofer, The Artist & the Book, 1860-1960, pp. 26).

      - 1 lettre autographe signée 4 In-4 (petit) [juillet 1898] mouillures importantes en bas et sur un côté Belle et longue lettre amicale de Gide. "Une fichue idée que j'ai eue de vous confier mon manuscrit, cher Chauvin, ou plutôt une fichue idée que vous avez eue de l'emporter en Allemagne ; c'est pourquoi je tremblai tant quand je vous sus parti avec mon bloc. C'est très dans le caractère de Saül de revenir souvent sur ses pas ; n'importe il faut insister ; on y arrive ; il faut que vous arriviez à le décider à partir et et quelque embêtement que vous cause l'indécence du vieux toi, il me faut absolument le revoir. En hâte ingéniez vous à triompher de lui. Consolez-moi de mon attente en me parlant un peu de vous. Envoyez des vers - que je les loue. O! négligeant ami! ne m'aviez-vous pas promis aussi un manuscrit de soldat martyr ; pourquoi m'alléchiez-vous si ce n'était pour après me satisfaire? Doutez-vous que seul et par moi-même je n'aie pas assez de désirs, ou n'avez-vous pas compris encore combien mes pensées sont fidèles? Car je regrette encore de n'avoir pu vous lire du Hafiz - et quand vous reviendrez du service je ferai cesser ce regret. Je vous ai tutoyé dans une lettre - pendant une demi heure - tant pis ; le coche est manqué et les cheveux de l'occasion me sont restés dans la main ; je les garde avec la barbe de Heddin, cette lettre arriva à Paris le lendemain de votre départ". Il explique les raisons de sa présence à Alençon : l'état de santé très grave de sa soeur, qui peine à se remettre de "ses pénibles couches", qui s'est compliqué par une phlébite puis une embolie . "Nous avons passé ici quelques jours atroces et le danger semble à peine écarté à présent. Mon petit filleul tient déjà une grande place dans ma vie. Il est laid - ce qui me ravit [.]" [Il s'agit de Dominique Drouin (1898/1969), fils de Dominique Drouin et Jeanne Rondeaux sa belle-soeur, neveu et filleul de Gide, qui naquit à Alençon le 11 juillet]. En P.S., il ajoute : "Enthousiasmant Charles, le manuscrit arrive à Cuverville ; mon frère m'en prévient par dépêche ; merci ; j'espère que vos vers vont suivre. Vous êtes délicieux et je vous aime bien". Ecrivain, romancier, diariste. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons,, 1898. Colonel of Artillery in the Service of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. With an Introduction by The Right Hon. Sir Richard Temple. Octavo. Original moderate reddish-brown cloth, lettered on the spine and front board, teal surface-paper endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece of Gardner, every inch the Scottish Sikh in tartan approximation of a shalwar qameez, talwar in hand, and one other portrait, 2 full-page maps. Neat gilt supralibros of the parliamentary library of New South Wales to the upper board, very slightly rubbed and bumped, ink stamp neatly removed from the title page, some foxing front and back, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Extremely uncommon, and highly sought-after memoir. "An adventurer and soldier of fortune, Gardner (1785-1877) travelled through much of Central Asia and Afghanistan before joining the service of Ranjit Singh in 1832. Carefully edited by Major Pearse, Gardner's memoirs tell in a rough-hewn fashion of his experiences as the Commander of Sikh artillery in the 1835 conflict with Afghanistan over control of the Peshawar Valley. Similarly, Gardner gives an accounting of the bloody internal struggle for control of the Sikh State following the death of Ranjit Singh. With the imposition of British dominion over the Sikhs at the conclusion of the First Sikh War of 1846, Gardner's memoirs recede into the record of his retirement years spent in the Vale of Kashmir" (Riddick). Chopra, with reference to this work, considered that the work of Western scholars "rendered great service to the Punjab and their works still have great bearing on the language, culture and history of the region" (p.48).

        COCORICO. Revue.

      Au Bureau de la Rédaction et Administration, 9, Rue Say, Paris, 1898-1900 - 2 volumes grands in-4 (31,5 x 24,5 cm), 44 premières livraisons reliées (sur 63 livraisons que compte la revue complète). Reliures éditeur pleine percaline verte avec le coq de Steinlen estampé sur le premier plat (noir, rouge avec titre en or). Titre et daté dorés en long au dos. Dans le premier volume les couvertures illustrées et les annonces publicitaires illustrées sont rassemblées en fin de volume. Dans le second volume les couvertures illustrées et les annonces publicitaires sont à leur place en tête de chaque livraison. Reliures et intérieurs très frais. Complet en ce qui concerne les 44 premières livraisons. Le peintre Paul Boutigny, admirateur et ami d'Alphonse Mucha, décide de mettre sur le marché à la fin de l'année 1898 le « journal humoristique le plus artistique et littéraire » qui prend la « défense de l'Art nouveau » sous une forme « luxueuse mais à un prix abordable ». Tels sont les mots publiés dans la profession de foi du premier numéro qui sort des presses le 31 décembre à Paris. Au regard de l'histoire des magazines, Cocorico se distingue des autres supports alors en vente en France : si L'Illustration et la Revue illustrée, via la famille Baschet, dominent en partie le secteur, ils sont peu nombreux à proposer résolument sous une forme accessible une vitrine du modernisme artistique, lequel déferle tout de même sur toute l'Europe depuis une dizaine d'années. Cocorico n'offre pas seulement un échantillon d'images originales signées d'artistes alors émergents, on trouve aussi des textes en prose ou des poèmes signés par des auteurs comme Alphonse Allais, Tristan Bernard, Ferdinand Bloch, Paul Bourget, Georges Courteline, Hugues Delorme, Maurice Donnay, Vincent Hyspa, Jules Renard, ou encore Henri de Régnier ou Willy. Le ton est à la fois littéraire et humoristique, voire satirique et politique à travers des caricatures quand l'actualité l'impose. L'affiche promotionnelle est exécutée par Steinlen. Techniquement, les couvertures sont des chromolithographies de bonne qualité et l'intérieur est dans un premier temps tiré en noir et blanc. Peu à peu, le magazine qui offre d'abord 8 pages, passe à 12 pages voire 14 quand la publicité est abondante. La bichromie fait son apparition à partir de mars 1899 sur 2 à 4 pages, puis ce petit cahier passe en couleurs à compter de janvier 1900. Boutigny travaille avec l’imprimerie Champenois que fréquentent certains des meilleurs affichistes lithographes. L'appel aux abonnés se fait de façon très insistante : pour 7 francs par an, Boutigny promet 24 numéros assortis de diverses primes qui vont de l'estampe aux cartes postales artistiques signées Mucha, en passant par des objets proposés à des prix défiant toute concurrence, tels un appareil photographique pour une majoration d'un franc de l'abonnement, un petit phonographe ou un « vase modern style », le tout mis à disposition au siège de Cocorico, situé 9 rue Say. Une formule « marketing » qui avait déjà été mise en pratique par de nombreuses revues artistiques (comme L'Estampe moderne) et qui continue de nos jours encore d'être utilisée par les magazines. En novembre 1901, Louis Geisler devient l'administrateur du journal : cet inventeur et industriel dirigeait entre autres les papeteries des Châtelles où, sans doute après avoir négocié un partenariat avec Boutigny, il décide d'imprimer Cocorico suivant son procédé dérivé de la « phototypie », la trichromophotogravure. Les procédés de reproductions photographiques commencent à cette époque à se multiplier dans la presse et concurrencent la gravure mécanique de type traditionnel, mais à un coût de revient qui grève sensiblement l'économie de certains supports : vendu 30 centimes pendant ses trois premières années, Cocorico passe à 50 centimes en novembre 1901. Le magazine disparaît le 1er mai 1902, après avoir publié 63 numéros et duré moins de quatre années. (source : wikipédia). Les artistes ayant collaboré à Cocorico sont fort nombreux, leurs présence va du hors-texte [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Opera assolutamente completa anche della sua brossura editoriale, spesso assente. La seconda opera contiene alcuni testi redatti da noti studiosi, dedicati a questa celebre opera ed è anch’essa un’opera rara. Il Il Rinascimento delle ceramiche maiolicate in Faenza è considerata la più importante fonte sulle ceramiche maioliche faentine nel rinascimento e venne redatta dal notoIMG_6010_clipped_rev_1studioso ed artista faentino, Federigo Argnani (Faenza 1822-1905) fondatore della Pinacoteca di Faenza, grande amico del pittore Stefano Ussi. L’autore si formò presso l’Accademia di Firenze dedicandosi inizialmente ad eseguire incisioni calcografiche. Ben presto, però, venne chiamato a Faenza presso la prestigiosa Scuola Tecnica Faentina per insegnare disegno. Argnani fu anche un valente soldato ed un fervente patriota e prese parte attiva ai moti risorgimentali. Il suo studio sulle ceramiche faentine è considerato uno degli studi più importanti, anche se presenta alcune inesattezze, sulle ceramiche faentine rinascimentali. Le magnifiche tavole a colori più volte ripiegate, come tutte le illustrazioni dell’opera, furono realizzate dallo stesso autore. Argnani a proposito del suo studio, scrive nell’introduzione che l’opera tratterà delle "maioliche faentine sparse per l’Italia con indagini effettuate nelle città di Bologna, Ferrara, Padova, Venezia, Mantova, Parma, Modena, Firenze, Arezzo, Perugia, Pesaro, Ravenna, Forlì, Fano, Ancona, Fabriano, Gubbio, Arezzo. dove taluni artisti maiolicari di Faenza trasportarono l’industria delle ceramiche. al fine di discernere con sicurezza le stoviglie lavorate in Faenza da quelle lavorate in città dove quest’Arte venne qui importata". In appendice al primo volume si trovano i "Documenti raccolti dal Prof. Carlo Malagola per la storia delle maioliche di Faenza, dove Argnani cerca di chiarire alcuni aspetti poco conosciuti della storia e delle innovazioni tecniche legate alle ceramiche maioliche faentine dal il XIV ed il XV secolo. Prima edizione, in buone-ottime condizioni di conservazione ed ancora a fogli chiusi. Rif. Bibl.: IT\ICCU\RAV\0078369 e IT\ICCU\UBO\2286530.
